ministration in thehistory of the coun try ever received a harder slap in the face from Congress than thatgiven the present one by the amendment added othe Sundry Civil Appropriation bill iy the Senate Appropriation commit ee forbidding the private sale of bonds ts adoption by Congress will be equiv alent to a vote of lack of confidence in ho administration which in England wbuldresuH in animmediate change of ministry and imless there is a radical change of sentiment in Congress its uloption is only a matter of time Senator Mills of Texas wiio has upon occasion sang to cuckoo music doesnt hink that amendment goesfar enough and has given notice of his intention to otter anothsr one when the bill gets be ore the Senateproviding for the outr repeal of that portion of the specie resumption act that authorizes the issue of bonds Mr Cleveland ought to thank his stars thatthe death of this Congress is so and that so many of the regular appropriation bills remain unacted upon that no time is leftto carry out numerous threats made against him privately by individ ual Senators and Congressional financial marching up the hill nnd down again which has been such a marked of the present session came with the formal abandonment of the Jones bill for he unlimited coinage of silver by the Senate although there ma7be a few spasmodic attempts V6n the part of individuals to make their records on the question more satisfactory to their constituents during the remaining days of theSRSsion There haSbeen considerable snobbery about thisadministratibn from the be ginning but Secretary Morton this week ontsnobbedall the rest It was his turn to give a cabinet dinner to Mr and Mrs Cleveland and likewise his turn to make an ass of himself He had two expensive chairs one for Mr Cleveland and one for his wife made for the occasion each having a silver piate inscribed with the name of the occupant pf thedinner slJaclT IjhiidVof JSrry Rusk this man is a member of the cabi net a portion of whose duties is sup posed to be giving the President of the United States advice He has already been dubbed Silver Plate Morton and the name ought to stick to him the longest day lives and in addition ho should be compelled to wear at all times a silverbreastplate inscribed 1 am Clevelands chief bootlicker Secretary Carlisle took pains while positively denying the present necessity for proposed amendment to an appro priation bill giving tho Secretary of the Treasury authority to issue short time 8 per cent loan certificates to meet any in the revenues to put in a bid for that very by saying in bis ofUcial communication to the Senate It is my opinion that the Secretary of the Treasury ought to to permanently invested with authority to iflsue and sell shorttime bonds or other obligations of the government for the purpose of raising mouey to meet such deficiencies in the ordinary revenues as may occur from time to time Like the boy who having declared he was not hungry and declined the preferred cookies he accompanies tho declina tion with the suggestion that he bo made the custodian of the cookies and be given pcimissibu to eat them if he should happen to get hungry could be undipped True they are hot j so beautiful as the human form but they are more beautiful than milliners or dressmakers signs Of course the prudes dont propose a fullcostume

suggestions from them how but perhaps with a fig leaf or so and a driipe they might We have supposed Iowa was too recent ly hatched out of the wild and wobly west to go into the goddess of modesty business It should keep up the con sistency and buiUV high board fences along the Musquakee Indian reserva tion in Tama county In the summer time as the trainrunsthrough1 it the menwe stole this country from may be seen chopping wood with no more drapery than a plug hat an ax and a smile If we start in on this prudery lets be consistent and drape the bare face of Nature or else let us recognize the there is sometimes more suggestiveness in a drape than in piire and artistic Nature We want no Goddess otModesty surmount ing the Soldiers monument PRIME IOWA BEEVES Profit the First Three Days A few days I read in your paper how Mrs Griiuth made a great deal of monej selling a new method of putting up fruit Here is what I did with an Old Reliable Plater The first three days that I had the Plater I plated 75 sets of knives forks spoons etc which when delivered broaght me in about cost of metal about leaving a gross profit of for my time and trouble and everyone was well pleased with the work and I came homo with double the amount of goods to bo plated I average about work per week I have been a travel ing salesman but have given it up the plating businesssuits me

i female form representing Victory No one can tell why it is a female form There is to be no rolling pin or flatiron to indicate victory The tower maxillary is immovable It is a female form for Artjj sake But hold There is objection to the female form It is immodest The same dear innocent people say so who visit our great state library without a word of criticism for the two beautiful figures of undraped art therein One thinks of a figure representing Victory as one just emerging from a ssvap To keep up the goodj old poetic idea she should for the fray when the goes off and come out of tho melee yet more dis mantled though still in the the prophetess of oUlwho gained but little in her own country But Victory in Iowa must be covered Perhaps a dressmakers sign shall be used as model That would represent victory over the old nian But it would not be so artistic as a representation of Victory as a marble bull pup holding another one down by thecan or thestagat a moun tajiifbi and ixiar

ket this winter The cattle were dress ed the same day The blacks uiade 64G8 pounds to the 100 of beef and the Short horns 0510 the best percentage in each bunch being 008 and 672 respectively The carcasses of the daddies turned out the nicest but the Short Horns cut uptho best Tho beef from the car casses when ready for the market that is when the same has undergone tho ripening and shrinking process will have to sell at 8 to 8J cents per pound wholesale in order to get out even Now Hsto the manner of feeding The cattle were fed to the above college dur ing a period covering ten months Their ration in the feed lot was snapped corn and oilmeal the latter being fed at first one pound per day per steer and gradually increased until four pounds reached Lateim the period of the experiment glucose meal was introduc ed and was fed in the same quantity and ratio as theoilrneal Glucose meal is a product of the glucose factory and has but recently been placed upon the market as a fat producing product An interesting part of the experiment was the summer grazing test The cat tle were divided into to lots live Angus and five Shorthorns in each lot One lot was given grain on the grass while the ptliPT received no he While tho former lot made naturally the greater gain for the time being it was not suflieient to pay for the extra ex pense allowing a very fair valuation lor tho guain upon a basis of the then current rates The conclusion reached was that good pasture is the best and cheapest food for making beef The average daily gain of the entire lot of steers diUing the

fortunate enough to learn the situation first have been secured by mortgage Just whether will pay dollar for dollar depends on circumstances There are many reasons advanced for the cause of the
