Iowa Condensed

- Mr. S.R. Drury, whose home at Muscatine was burned Thursday morning, lost
even his family's clothing, as well as all his furniture.

- Miss Tillie Thomas, a young lady of Iowa Falls, became suddenly and
violently insane last week. She has been sent to the asylum at Independence.

- A little daughter, five years old, of Wm. Myers, living seven miles north
of Burlington, was killed, the 28th ult, by a tree falling on her. Two other
children and the mother narrowly escaped, as the branches of the tree struck

- One of the proprietors and publishers of the Muscatine Tribune, Mr. Edward
H. Betts, was married on the evening of the 28th ult, to Miss Rita Stewart.
Among the many presents received by the happy bride was the suggestive one
of a washboard. The giver evidently took into careful consideration the
profession of the groom.

- A saw mill in Cass county recently had its roof nearly destroyed by Walter
Marsh, who, while at work, fainted and fell on the balance wheel, and went
up sky wards like a rocket. The roof was made of one inch oak boards,
battened. Marsh scattered the boards and tore off a rafter, and when he came
down, reposed on the roof a badly injured man, but alive and likely to
recover. Mill not insured.
