I do not. ’ J tan lift the Whole epoch joh-j fiery and rehtiery <»1 ail kinds r.Nte rampant. People welcomed th** war as a chance pi avoid I pay trig their debts, ami patriotism was largely understood as an evens** to rob one's Tory lie i gillers. Evidently tin* times a century ago and mon* were not all gilt edged. Human nature was capable of some des-pliable displays then as now. Mr. ti) .Morris refers to th** bickerings and local selfishness developed by th** efforts to frame and have adopted the federal constitution. Rhode Island wanted the slave trade maintained, while \ irginia, as the breeding ground of heman chattels, strove to have it aljotished. "sn things went on,” declares the writer, "with a loss in the I custom houses and fiscal agencies nearly ten times in percentage that whirh now occurs, with frauds and stealings o! ail sorts, which are set forth in ail manner of reports and Who books with a heat and personal bitterness of politics, and with a universal nepotism iii the matter of appointments which, if practiced to-day, would make the press lairiy howl,” Mr. Morris touches upon the rancor of the earlier days as it appeared in the correspondence of th** time, the "allusions to rascality in trust, tergiversations in politics and greed for office. Little incidents like the steal-ingot th** ballot-boxes in Ulster county in Clintonian times crop out constantly; and the good old chancellor Kent] seems from the time of the downfall of tin* Federal party to have been firmly set iii th** opinion that greed for money, lust after otlice and fierce ness in politics were •'lire eventually to destroy tin* republic.” In Mr. Moms estimation the present shows marked improvement in many res J >e< ts. There ar** fewer scandals now than formerly. The morals of the sexes arc undoubtedly better; odious vice is less Haunting now than then. Newspapers are far more decent in tone. He adds: only turn back to any <»1 tie* tiles in the Astor library, ami note tile utter disregard of taste and decency shown in the early issues of th** New \ **rk press. The papers of to-day compared with their predecessors are, in th*- writer’s judgment, as driven snow to New York mud." Items About the Nm Railroad.

According to time table No. I. which went into effect OU t he Duluth, Red Wing A .southern railroad on Monday, there will be two trains daily except .Sunday each way. As soon as arrangements can be made for mail service over the Duluth road the morning st.

The (relict * assai st of every one is •ing bound for St. The Search Tor Las at Stillwater to < until!lie. Stillwater Democrat. After the breaking of the cable at the gas well last week it was quite frequently remarked that theta would be no more drilling and that the well would be abandoned. Rut such is not tho case. A number of our citizens who iiave heretofore riot been interested in tie* search for gas now express their willingness and desire to see the work go on and are willing to take stock. A new cable will b** purchased and additional improvements will be made around the well. Work will bi resumed as soon as possible. None of our citizens wish to see tile enterprise abandoned and it is hoped that their search will not be in vain, but that they will before bing strike gas in paying quantities. A sample of the last sneer mens taken out at a depth of 3,440 feet was handed to Prof. I .chn en, a practical geologist, who pronounced them entirely different from any specimens yet taken out and said that the chances for striking gas were as good now as ever. % rd more, # nrn<*r of % \ e n ii <* «n4 Ninth Ml reef.

P F. PETERSON JOHNSON & PETERSON. FURNITURE! A \ I) UNDERTAKING! A FINK LINK OF Improved Champion Mower. THE CHAMPION is the only Mower on which the pitman never wears out, the knife heel never breaks, the gears never wear out nor break; the only Mower on which the gears run slowly and make no noise; the bar can he stood straight up and the knife will run freely even in that position; the only Mower on which all lost motion can he taken up on pitman, gearing and boxing; the only Mower on which the guards will outwear three sets of the cheap guards used on other mowers, and never break nor get out of line; the only Mower on which the slightest forward motion of the master wheel starts the knife; the only Mower on which the motion is transmitted directly from the master wheel to the knife pitman without any joints to wear loose and rattle, and where ALL THE POWER is applied to cutting the grass, none being wasted on loose joints or fast running gearing; the only Mower that has no frame work or pitman hanging down in front to run into obstructions cr interfere with the cut grass; the only Mower that has no clutches to bother by slipping out of gear, and it can be put in gear at any point without backing. THE IMPROVED CHAMPION has less than one-third the amount of gearing that other Mowers have, and the pitman and its connections hic warranted not to break or wear out. This Mower is so novel and so superior to all others that an examination will convince any farmer that it is worth much more money than any other. THE WARDER, BUSHNELL & GLESSNER CO., SPRINGFIELD, OHIO.-IMMUMCTimul—---CHICAGO, ILLINOIS .Milk Healers .Must lh* Unused. Probably few have noticed the new law (See. la, Chapter 82 of the supple iii eats) which provides that hereafter ill milk peddlers and dealers must be licensed. The hist clause of the law is as follows; livery person who convey* milk iii carriages earls nr otherw is.* tor the purpose of selling tin* same in any city or town of two thousand inhabitants or more in the State of Minnesota shall annually, on the first.* la) of May,or within thirty nays thereafter, be licensed by the state dairy commissioner to sell milk within the limits of Mini eity or town, and shall pay to the said state dairy commissioner the sum of one dollar fit] each to the use of said dairy commission. 1 Penalties of line and imprisonment are provided for failure to obtain the proper license. Concerning this quit* important law the Red Wing Republican says that a prominent attorney of that city says the law applies to every one who sells milk, In his opinion if a man owning a cow furnishes milk to his neighbor fora consideration he will under this law be compelled to take out a license. This interpretation if correct and the source from which it emulates leaves very little doubt of this -stamps the law tis exceedingly unjust. There are in this city, as well as in many other towns in the state a number of people whose income is derived wholly front the product of a few cows they have been able to secure. Some of them are poor and even the payment by them of| one dollar each for licenses would deprive them of some comforts and perhaps necessities Considering the fact that there seems, to be no practical benefit to be derived from the law it appears in this light to be an unjustly oppressive measure.

The I exercises of the day were very Interest- I ing, the leading features being the ora-lion, which was ably delivered by Iver A. Ko*Isa*tor, ami a base ball game between New Richland and Hartland. which was hotly contested, resulting in a victory for the Rich landers. There was a very large crowd in attendance, md all seemed to enjoy themselves to the I idlest extent. The Standard representative noticed with much satisfaction the numerous handsome young ladies that lined the streets and filled the stores, and was led to the pleasant conclusion that the youn^nteii of Hartland are to be greatly envied. He should nut neglect to acknowledge the obliging aud kindly courtesy of Mr. Porter, the popular railroad agent at Hartland. He is the right man for the place,and tin* favor he extended to the .VI ber I Lea boys will not soon be forgotten.
