Hill-- Brothers UarriHon and Hayes Were Very Handy With the FluiilN. York Sun One who lias travelled through most of the states during the great presiden- tial battle and since has heard frequent comments concerning President Harri- son's views on the liquor question and drinking generally. When The Sun announced tliu morning after inaugu- lation that President Harrison stopped in the Vice-President's chamber and took a stiff drink of whisky before reading his inaugural address, there- was a bliiver among some of his admir- ers. It has since been demonstrated that the shock was especially (elt by republican women. Une of these at lirst would not believe it, and onlv ex- cused it on account oi the shocking ho most successful and most durable of all harvesting machines.

There is no weight on the horses' necks; no tearing of cau'vas or straps, for tiwrc are springs to relieve the strain caused by shrinkage; no choking at front of elevators, for their is a relief rako to prevent it. No other Binder has this valuable device. Everything on-tho CHAMPION has been made as simple and substantial as possible.

The CHAMPION Butter is unlike any other, and is superior to them all. The CHAMPION will cutall kinds of small grain that grow no matter in what condition; it is lighter draft than any other Harvester doing tho same work; it is easily managed by any farmer; it will cause less trouble and expense for repairs, it will make less delay in harvest time, and it will do more work and bo more durable than any other Harvester and Binder that is made THE WARDER, BUSHNELL QLESSNEK COMPANY, SPRINGFIELD, OHIO.------MANUFACTURERS------CHICAGO, ILU. weather when indubitable, evidence was presented that the J'resident did take the drink aforesaid. Mie, with many others, had always thought that the President was a strict temperance man. and believed that any criticism to the contrary emanated from democrat- ic spite and malice. Several of these New York republican ladies were s enator Kvarts Uishop Potter, Chauncey .M. K B. Hayes, Secretary Proctor, and one or two others. Every man at that table except Gov. Hill drank the wine placet jefore him. President Harrison hand- ed the glass containing the sparkling champagne quite-as familiarly as any of the uthurs. In fact.

MI put into treatment of us alittle more of ie spirit of Anstides. Karnestiv lUA'li. WING. We are glad to receive the explana- 1011 as to the failure, of the teachers to nswer certain simple questions at the istitute last week, and cheerfully give place in our columns. Our criticism based on information derived three reliable persons, a lawyer, n ex-editor and an ex-teacher who present, and thus we had eason to rely on it. If literally true it "as certainly discreditable "to the present, and it was the duty f the in the interest of schools and the public to make the ict known. AVe hope that it was .-in- only in the manner explained by ur correspondent. We understood that ut few. comparatively, of the experi- :iced teachers and only about one- lird of all the teachers of the county present in the institute at the me, and supposed that was in a icasure, the explanation. The STAX- Aiin is and always has been the rieiid of the teachers, but it has a yet iglier regard for the interests of the ehoois, which are paramount to any f a personal character. We never kick i man when lie is down'' merely for ie sake of kicking him; rather for the urpose of correcting, improving Cl- icking him out, and tii.it is a duty m the ase our correspondent has in" mind, it is dueto the teachers as well as IB schools that we should faithfully xecute. We would not otherwise be 'tie to the interests, the welfare and ie progress of education, and to the ehoois and the teachers which are its lain and active adjuncts. To be just tin: teachers is a pleasure as well as a uty; altogether those of Freebom qua! those of any like county of the late, and we are glad to know that lany of them, like our admirable critic, rank among the best.

The night watchman discovered smoke issuing from one of ilormitory windows, and after a brief investigation raised an alarm. The college bell was rung vigorously, and ;his was repeated ay the regular city ire bell. This willed out the lire department and citizens, but as the college is situated a mile west of the city, the means for lighting the ire were limited to those belong- ng to the college itself. These leld the lire in check for two hours, jut as it was lucated in a confined e that was extremely inaccesible by all ordinary means, its extinction vas impossible. The. lire crept along he roof and at two o'clock broke hrough the roof and hopes of saving he building were given up. The jontents were wholly removed.

The Xashville Students, the celebrat- ed colored company of plantation singers gave a very enjoyable concert at the Grand last night. The company includes some mangniiicent voices, and they sang the jubilee and planta- tion songs and ballads and other selections with very line elTect. The voices blend very well, and show a high degree'of cultivation. The pro- gram included solos, duets, quartettes and choruses, many of which had to be repeated before the audience would be satisfied. The company responded to a good many encores, giving a program ol about thirty selections. In some of the humorous pieces the singers gave a mimicry and inimitable rendering tluil was extremely funny and kept the audience in a roar. The rich voices of the company appeared to special advantage in the choruses, and the whole program was very creditably given. These famous singers will ap- pear at the opera house Saturday even- ing. June 8th. At Cost! At Cost!

The result ol the meat inspection aw in Minneapolis is thus stated by lie rttar: Some companies have raised he price more than others, but one ompany is trying the experiment of elling at nearly the same prices as be- ore the law went into effect. Thiseom- mny, however, is the exception. Sir- cm steak that could be bought for 15 ents is now selling at 18 cents. Porter- house steak is sellingat 18and 20 cents, which is 8 and a cents above former prices. Corned beef is nearly the same in price as before, as is also pork. Deal- ers think that poultry will be a grain higher. One dealer said: "This new law- is obnoxious to meat dealers as well as to the customers. The dealer has to raise the price to make anything, and the meat is not nearly as good as for- merly.'' The question was asked him if this law affected the country dealers as much as it did the city dealer. He re- plied: "It has practically no effect on the country dealer, as they have always killed their own beef. The provision companies around St. Paul depend al- most entirely on the city trade." When questioned a's to the probability of the provision companies raising the present price, he said, "They may "form a com- bination and so raise the prices and we cannot help A Sound Legal Opinion.

Hotel men are a good deal like poets, and as Horace has it, they are bom and not made. Among the many pleasant rest- ing places for the sojourner and way- faring man in that city, none has achieved a more enviable reputation than the Clifton, situated right in the heart of the city on Fifth street opposite the new courthouse. Mr J H. Baker, the proprietor, is a veteran boniface, and what he doesn't know about conducting a first-class house is not worth inquiring about. He is a splendid caterer, a genial host and a deservedly popular landlord. The Clifton is conducted on tiie American and European plans and is possessed of every modern convenience, including electric lights elevators, steam heat, etc. The apart- ments are superbly furnished and the table and service unsurpassed. Added to this the rates are moderate, and, in fact, the Clifton combines every qual- ity of a lirst-class hotel. Just the place, in short, where the guest can be provided with every luxury, conven- ience and comfort. Albert Lea and JTreebom county people in general will be always wel- come at the Clifton, and will find the entertainment in all respects and satisfactory. tmd REE13 CHAIRS, Extra Fine, New Styles, Ladies' Writing Desks, CURTAINS and FIXTURES.
