We ! expect oil just what happened; tin* policy of President Harrison in ignoring th** hard workers in the distribution of executive favors could not have brought about a different result. Tin* | Iowa cataclysm may in part be charged J to local differences, but through it ail j (Nm be traced a vein of Harrisonism. Much regret will Im- expressed when it is learned that Senator Allison is in danger of being ([uneated for re-election. In Ohio the water spout burst with more fury than usual and very j little is saved from the wreck. Here the national administration may shoulder a greater part of the blame. Hut it th*- rebuke to the Harrism idea is to be measured correctly turn your eyes to Virginia where Malcne 'had the active and undivided support of Hie administration. The News takes the result of last Tuesday as a stinging rebuke to the onemanUm so far represented in the administration. So party eau scarcely hope fit) succeed w hen it ignores the friends that placed it in power; and no oik* man is great enough to swing a great party without aid from the men that gave it life, lf President Harrison continues to pursue th** policy lie has apparently mapped out for Minnesota he may have more things to be sorry fur. The News is Republican in principle and believes that the offices belong to the ]>eoj>le I ami riot to a few men; and the people will not tolerate many more selfish and insolent moves. The lesson of last i Tuesday has been taught -will the man in the White Home heed it or will he let the party go down in order to gratify the Bahisti desires of the few? A Soldier Meets His Old Commander. One of the most gallant and accomplished officers <d the late war was Col. J. \V. H issei I oi the Missouri Engineers. who among other brilliant feats conceived and executed that famous canal by which a Hot ilia of eight gun barges and steamboats were taken 12 miles through an overflowed tract of heavy timber land to Hen. Pope, .it New Madrid, enabling that officer to cross the Mississippi river and Hank the rebels out ol their stronghold, Island No. IO, and securing the long chain of fortunate results which followed. I). (J. Parker has always been proud of the fact that he was a member of this regiment and has always taken delight in recounting to the boys the dashing exploits of his brilliant commander. On W ednesday last the two met in st. Paul in ter a separation of nearly 27 years. The pleasure of this reunion is best evidenced by the beautiful regimental badge in polished pure gold of which Mr. Parker was the of RenewimI I.Ste--A Mjndiratr of I atiltallwf* l*r(>|m«»«‘ft to i'tirtiioh All the Money \ etled-—Keep Coni ami YI ait a Little Longer. it has been known lot several weeks ! that negotiations were in progress with I a syndicate of New Jersey capitalists, { whereby the management of the Duluth. lied \\ jug A Southern railroad | had confident expectations of being j able to negotiate their bonds and obtain all thf* means necessary to con-1 struct their entire line. The syndicate I includes John I. Blair, a several-timcs I millionaire railroad owner and opera-' tor and other capitalists of New Jersey, I and it is understood that they are strongly prepossessed iii favor of the enterprise. It transpires that they I were led to consider it so favorably j that all the documents were signed I whereby the cash is to be furnished on the bonds, provided their engineer, i upon personal examination of the selected route, finds and reports favorably ii]rot! its feasibility and probable [laying success. In accordance with the agreement, last I liursday. \\. W. Walker, an emi-I inuit engineer and experienced railroad man of New York Pity, representing i the syndicate,accompanied by Director i "her of Owatonna, visited Albert Lea, took in the situation, and tieing after- j wards joined by Hen.

In*, of course, refrained from stating. hut he said enough to Director Todd of this city to cause tin* latter ta appear in a very comfortable frame of mind, and I., indicate that Mr. Walker enter-t lined a very high opinion of the country through which the road is to run and of its prospects, There is ex cedent reason, in fact, to believe that Ids report will be favorable, and if so, you may ( balk it down bard “The Led Wing road is all right!” SPECIAL BARGAINS IN APPLES -A.

It consists of three sections: A crown liar to which is attached the pin, linked to which is a castle, the engineering 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 thin it was like the good old father meeting his prodigal son and putting a badge of honor upon him, together with other tokens of affection. The badge was one Hoi. Dissell had had made for himself especially aud 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 beautiful memento and will ever be prized by the veteran owner as his most presiimis relic of the war. —-•*£*• Turn the Rascals Out. Fairmont Sentinel.

Parents should be careful that their children do not contract colds during the fall or early w inter months. Such colds weakens the lungs and air passages. making the child much more likely to contract other colds during the winter. It is this succession of colds that causes catarrh and bronchitis, or paves the way for consumption. Should ;i cold be contracted, loose no time but cure it as quickly as possible, A fifty cent bottle of Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy will cure any cold in a few days and leave the respiratory organs strong and healthy.

IL Bilker has been carefully investigating the cause of the decline in the price of cattle, and his concio 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 agriculture, bureau of animal industry,Which I have just received dissipates anv j such notion. By a careful anylysis of this report I 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-s 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 j fallen steadily. In other woras, author-; itive facts show that though the beef ration is the same per thousand of the population, the price goes down, pressed by some new and powerful factor. It is certain, therefore, that the present low prices for cattle are not due to overproduction, for over-production does not exist. The real cause can alone be found in capitalistic combinations. The Rural New Yorker, a leading agricultural journal of the East, very re-; featly 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 testimony was that it laid ruined the market for fanners’ cattle, and made the dry cows no longer lit for the dairy, a drug in the market.” Stop a Moment! A great truth is here made public by the Crookston Times: Did our merchants ever stop to think that advertising not only increases their business, but benefits the town as well. Instances 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 way of bargains. There is not a merchant. who knows how to advertise right, but will tell you that he has seemed customers who frere naturally tributary to other towns, by first showing 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 advertisers 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: “Five well-dressed women stepped into the municipal court this afternoon. From their general appearance a casual observer might mistake them for wellbred 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 $3$) the richer. They gave their names as Emma Williams, Josie Williams, Gertie Duvane, Annie Wright and Hattie Brush.” OUR NEW STORE, Is 120 feet ilcej), two stories and basement, and is chock Will of as complete a stock of HARDWARE As can lie found in this region.
