It has since been demonstrated that the shock was especially felt by republican women. One of these at hrs! would not believe it, and only excused it on account of tin* shocking weather when indubitable evidence was presented that the President did take tie* drink aforesaid. Hie, with many others, had always thought that Hie President was a strict temperance man, and believed that any criticism to the contrary emanated from democratic spite and malice. Several of these I New York republican ladles were so I interested in the truth of the matter that a Sun reporter felt it his duty to give casual attention to it at the cen-1 tennial banquet, It will bi;remembered that at tie* President’s table, besides himself, were Mr. Morton, Mayor nrant, (Joy*.

THE WARDER, BUSHNELL & GLESSNER COMPANY, SPRINGFIELD, OHIO. MANUFACTURERS CHICAGO, ILL. Knrti ca ti v . lev i;. Wino. We are glad to receive the explanation as to the failure of the teachers to answer certain simple questions at the institute last week, and chee rf ally giY'e it place in our columns. Our criticism was based on information derived from three reliable persons, a lawyer, an ex-editor and an ex-teacher who were present, and thus yvo had reason to rely on it. If literally true it was certainly discreditable 'to the teachers present, and it was the duty of the Standard, in the interest of the schools and the public to make the fact known. We hope that it was true only iii the manner explained by our correspondent. We understood that but few, comparatively, of the experienced teachers and only about one-third oi all the teachers of the county were present in the institute at the time, ami supposed that was in a measure, the explanation. The Standard is and always has been the friend of the teachers, but it has a vet higher regard for the interests of the schools, which are paramount to any of a personal character. We never kick “a man when he is down” merely for tin* sake of kicking him; rather for the purpose of correcting, improving or kicking him out, and that is a duty iii the case our correspondent has in' mind, which it is due to the teachers as well as tho schools that we should faithfully execute. We would not otherwise be true to the interests, the welfare and the progress of education, and to the schools and the teachers which are its main aud active adjuncts. To bt* just to the teachers is a pleasure as well as a duty; altogether those of Freeborn equal those of any like county of the and we are glad to know that of them, like our admirable rank among tin* best. The Burning of Luther College. We copy the following concerning this calamity from the Northwood Anchor: "College burned this morning; nothing left but walls.” This was the first news of th** sad flite of this line edifice, and caused a sadness in the hearts of many here, for "warm personal recollections still linger. I lie following is from tin* Des Moines Register: “Decorah, May 20. special to the State Register:-The Lutheran College in this city burned shortly before midnight. The night watchman discovered smoke issuing from one of dormitory windows, and after a brief investigation raised an alarm. The college bell was rucg vigorously, and this was repeated by the regular city fire hell. rh is railed out the lire department and citizens, but as the college is situated a mile west of the city, the means for lighting the lire were limited to those belonging to the college itself. These held the lire iii check for two hours, but as it was located in a confined space that was extremely inaccesible by ail ordinary means, its extinction was impossible. The tire crept along the roof and at two o’clock broke through the roof and hopes of saving the building were given up. The contents were wholly removed. The structure belongs to the Norwegian Lutheran churches of America. It was built by contributions and dedi cated October 14th, lv»5, and its supine is largely derived from the same sources. During its existence over thirteen hundred students have attended it and its present attendance is IHT. I lit* cost ol the building and grounds was J? I HO,DUO, one-half of which is destroyed by this misfortune.’’ Ruth et- College was four stories high and covered a space of axixTO feet, and carried only spnmu insurance; which only covers the incumberance on the same. , „_  -_.r_- D.

The Nashville Students, the celebrated colored company of plantation singers gave a very enjoyable concert at the Grand last night. The company includes some mangnificent voices, and they sang the jubilee and plantation songs and ballads and other selections with very fine effect. The voices blend very well. and show a high degree'of cultivation. The program included solos, duets, quartettes and choruses, many of which had to bo repeated before tin* audience would be satisfied. The company responded to a good many encores, giving a program of about thirty selections. In some of the humorous pieces the singers gave a mimicry and inimitable rendering that was extremely funny and kept the audience in a roar. Tho rich voices of the company appeared to special advantage in the choruses, and the whole program was very creditably given. 'These famous singers will appear at the opera house Saturday evening, J line 8th. law in Minneapolis is thus stated by the star: Some companies have raised the price more than others, hut one company is trying the experiment of selling at nearly the same prices as before the law went into effect. This company, however, is the exception. Sirloin steak that could be bought for 15 cents is now selling at 18 cents. Porterhouse steak is sellingut 18 and 20 cents, which is 3 ami 5 cents above former prices. Corned beef is nearly the same in price as before, as is also pork. Dealers 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, rite dealer has to raise tin* price to make anything, and the meat is not nearly as good as formerly.” 'rite question was asked him if this law affected the country dealers as much as it did tin* city dealer. Ile replied: “It has practically no effect on the country dealer, as they have always killed their own beef. The provision companies around St. Paul depend almost entirely on the city trade. When questioned as to the probability of tin* provision companies raising the present price, lie said, “They may form a combination and so raise the prices aud we cannot help ourselves.” A Popular St. Paul Hostelry.
