H. Baker has been carefully investigating the cause of the decline in the price of cattle, and his conclu- sions are very interesting. We make the following extracts from his able article: "But, says one, over-produc- tion is responsible for the fall in beef, and not the combine. A preliminary report from the department of agricul- ture, bureau of animal industry, -which I have just received dissipates any such notion. By a careful anylysis of this report 1 learn that, prior to the advent of the beef combine, prices of cattle fluctuated strictly in accordance with the law of supply and demand. The report shows that the number of cattle to the thous- and population has remained, since the advent of the combine, nearly the same, there being a slight decrease in the relative number; but the price has fallen steadily. In other words, author- itive facts show that though the beef ration is the same per thousand of the population, the price goesdown, pressed by sonie new and powerful factor. It is certain, therefore, that the present low prices for cattle are not due to over- production, for over-production does At prices that defy competition.

Tlie lowa'cataclysinmay in part be charged to local differences, but through it all can be traced a vein ol llarrisonism. Much regret will be expu-5-.ed when it is learned that Allison is in danger of being d for re-elec- tion. In Ulan the water spout burst with more fury than u-nai and very little is saved from the wreck. Here the national administration may shoul- der a greater part of the blame.

The Xtws takes the result of last Tuesday as a stinging I rebuke to the nnemariKm so far repre- sented in the administration. Xo party ean scarcely hope succeed when it ignores the" friends that placed it in power; and no one man is great enough to swing a great party without aid i from the men that gave it life. If I President Harrison continues to pursue i the policy he has apparently mapped out for Minnesota he may have more things to be sorry for. The Xews is I llepublican in principle and believes that the oflices belong to the people nnd not to a few men: and the people will not tolerate many more scllish and insolent moves. The lesson of last Tuesday has been the man in the V.'hite JIou.se heed it or will he let the party go down in order to grati- fy the .leliish desires of the few V A Soldier Meets His Old Commander. One of the mobt gallant and accom- plished ollicers of the late war was Col. J. W. Bissell of the Missouri En- gineers, who among other brilliant feats conceived and executed that famous canal by which a ilotilla of eight gun barges "and steamboats were taken 12 miles through an overllowed tract of heavy timber land to Ken. Pope, at Xew Madrid, enabling that oliicer to cross the Mississippi river and llank the rebels out oi their stronghold, island Xo. 10, and securing the" long chain of fortunate results which fol- lowed. (1. Parker has always been proud of the fact that he was a mem- ber of this regiment and has always taken delight in recounting to the boys the dashing exploits of bis brilliant commander. On Wednesday last the two met in >t. Paul alter a separation of nearly "27 j-cars. The pleasure of this reunion is best evidenced by the beauti- ful regimental badge in polished pure gold of which Mr. Parker was the happy recipient. It consists of three sections: A crown bar to which is at- tached the pin, linked to which is a castle, the enginei'ring emblem, inlaid with red enamel, closely linked to this is a shield surmounted by a delicate wreath, around which is set the words, "The Missouri Engineer Regiment." Mr. Parker says'tliat it was like, the good old father meeting his prodigal son and putting a badge of honor upon him. together with otner tokens of af- fection. The badge was one Col. Hissell had had made for himself especially and he took it from a drawer, and with the heartiest expressions of good will made Mr. Parker a present of it. It is a costly and beauliiid memento and will ever be prized by the veteran own- er as his most previous rilic of the war. Turn the Kast-als Out. Fairmont Sentinel.

Parents' IMity. Parents should be careful that their children do not contract colds during the fall or early winter months. Such colds weakens the lungs ami air pass- ages, making tin; child much more likely to contract other colds during the winter. Jt is this succession of colds that caases catarrh and bronchi- tis, or paves the way for consumption. Should a cold be contracted, loose no time but cure it as quickly as possible.

The real cause can alone be found in capitalistic combinations. The PitiralXew Yorker, a leading agri- cultural journal of the East, very re- cently sent carefully prepared letters of inquiry to nearly all the Eastern states, asking for facts connected with the practical working of the dressed beef monopoly. The universal testi- mony was that" it had ruined the market for farmers' cattle, and made the dry cows no longer fit for the dairy, a drug in the market." Stop a Moment! A great truth is here made public by the Crookston Times: Did our mer- chants ever stop to think that adver- tising not only increases their business, but benefits the town as well. Instan- ces are numerous where farmers and residents of surrounding towns came many miles out of their way in order to trade in a town where the business men advertised something extra in the ay of bargains. There is not a mer- chant, who knows how to advertise right, but will tell you that he has se- cured customers who were naturally tributary to other towns, by first show- ing them through the local papers, and afterwards demonstrating to them by actual fact, that it would pay them to travel the extra distance to do their trading. A town that has live adver- tisers is the town which draws its trade from the greatest distance. Well-Dressed Wickedness. This sad tale of human depravity is taken from the Minneapolis Journal: well-dressed women stepped into the manicipal court this afternoon. Erom their general appearance a casual observer might mistake them for well- bred women. They were, however, the keepers of the notorious palaces of sin on 1st st. S. They stepped up to the judge in a business sort of way and pleaded guilty to keeping a house of ill fame. A rustle of crisp bank notes, a ring of gold pieces, and they passed out of the court room leaving" the city the richer. They gave their names as Kninia Williams, .losie Williams, Oertie Duvane, Annie Wright and Ilattic Brush.'' The Mammoth Doll.
