Winnebago City Press-New#: It is claimed a Spring Valley doctor lias invented a churn that will pound butter out of new milk in three minutes, by his watch. This would indicate one of two things, either the doctor’s head is working, or his watch stands badly in need of the jeweler’s attention. Joo. K. Klug. Adrian Democrat: A Chicago poetess is reported as dying of a broken heart because tire recently destroyed four hundred unpublished poems of her own composition. This should be a warning to tile editors of country newspapers who are carrying large stocks of unpublished spring poetry left over from last year and not a penny’s insurance upon it. W. E. Mc Reazle,Crookston Times: The Great Northern has cut down the wages of the section men 15 cents per day, to take effect to morrow They have been receiving the munificent sum of ti.25 per day, and it is said that they felt their oats too much prosperity was too swift for them and after a pay day they would get gay on their suddenly acquired wealth and failed to return to work for a week or two. Tams Bixby’* Red Win# Kepi’bl lean: While the tax for the current vear per inhabitant, here in Red Wing, is about $8.70 for each individual. In the county, outside of Red Wing, it amounts to 84.90 for each inhabitant. There are comforts and conveniences connected with living in town, it is true, but it is readily apparent to every one from these figures that the city folks pay well for all those conveniences. Church and School Are a Failure—A Native’s Attachment for His Cradle Hills—Welcome Obser vatlons from Prof. Barry. Editor Standard: Having a few spare moments at my disposal I will take * glance backward One morning at the break of day peered through the mist and fog. rhTe below lazily flowed the Mississippi- I he land was all flooded with water, there were im crops to ripen no pastures to moisten. A few more hours and I was in Chicago. Some of it was above water. Much of it below Two ami a half years ago I wandered over tile same ground. Tim crops were withering, tim ground was parched un-,*r the summer sun. For two month* the region sweltered under dust and heat. Men gazed hopeless on their withering fields of gram. The other day men looked in vain for their sunken sidewalks. It was designed that way a long, long time ago. » In the city I could not resist the temptation to ask the location of places. I asked a "cop" the most convenient way of reaching the University. He Bud “Chicago University V” I said “j es, they have one here” He pulled OUI his little directory, hut could find no such University. J said It is in Jackson park. ’ He then gave me directions winch would have taken me to St. J .on is. Walking down Wabash avenue I asked one how far it was to the Masonic Temple. Two blocks west and four blocks north was the answer. I walked on five or six blocks arid asked again. Must about four blocks ahead” I walked eight blocks I asked again, “Is that the tn}pJV^.“oh no* Fist two blocks ahead I Ins is characteristic Chicago Chicago is terribly dirty and muddy. Hie pavements are in bad condition At Youngstown,Ohio, a well dressed lady and small boy got on tile train. she evidently had not bought a ticket for the boy. The conductor had some difhculty DI collecting for the boy. one could not Had her money, lie asked the boy how old he was. The boy promptly replied “five.” It was Phtirily the intention to get a free ride for tim boy. When the conductor demanded fare she said: “I think you are very exacting. You are too nar row minded to ne liberal.” When an opportunity offered I asked the boy his He would soon be ten. .She lied about the pocketbook and taught the boy to lie about his age, ail for a paltry $...50. I hey were not of the ignorant class either. What has church and school done for her, and her na me is legion ? The train sped by the lovely hills and the winding valleys of New York With a mountain diam on either hand, the railroad by the river side, a cosy village here and there, is it any wonder the New Yorker never forgets the charms of Ii is cradle home? The winter winds are raw and bleak, but Hie flowers of spring soon come to redeem it all. We have had an intensely cold wave in New York. A change of 75 degrees in the thermometer, going as low as 3.1 degrees below. Anchor ice lilied the river causing it to oveiflow its banks in places several feet deep. D. P. Harry Adirondacks, Jan. 2d, 1896. A .Survivor of the Spirit Uke Indian rtafsacre Visits Her Son in Albert Lea--Cap!tired by Inkpadu-ta’s Band of Sioux, and Ransomed She Has a Remarkable History.

A electric current is pacsed through a “Crooks tulle,” which is a Producing an intense heat, which, in the form of light is thrown upon the object to be photographed. tso intense is this light that it passes through matter whose pat tides are loosely packed, like those of wood or of human llesh, strikes the harder substances such as bone or met Pf1'11* their outlines on the sensitized plate. .«£!£# n£? of the body cau be inspected as if the llesh were removed both simplifying surgery and aiding the injured, Bullets and foreign substances in the human body may he readily located and their removal made easy.

Inspect the Incomparable Values^-We Offer. Gage, Hayden IL Co. 8. P. Child, Waseca Herald: Three judges of the Hennepin county district court have decided the Kee-ley-cure inebriate-law valid aud that whenever a judge of probate sends a man to the Keeley cure doctors for four weeks or more, the county must pay the doctor bill. This is getting to be a glorious country! We first license a lot of drunkard makers and then tax the industrious and decent people to support the inebriates and pay 8100 doctor bills. O. G. Wall, North Iowa Times, McGregor: The populists have an eye on judge Caldwell, of the U.S. circuit court of appeals, as their presidential candidate: but so high a judicial position is inconsistent with populism. The populists are not all wrong by a long ways. They espouse the cause of too many vagaries to retain power if they could be fortunate enough to acquire it, but they are not so dangerous an element to the country as the other extreme that threatens the republic—the monopolists and cold-blooded milhonares. 8. A. Langum, Preston Times: Minnesota has enough people, and if there be any room to spare let it be reserved for our own children. There is an over production of farm products; there are enough laborers and to spare; the trades and professions are crowded, then why this determined effort to crowd more people into our state? We would net close the bars against intelligent, law abiding emigrants; we would permit them to come if they wanted to, but we object to this concerted action to coax people to come, by promises, which can never be more than half fulfilled.

Fall in Prices Since Silver Was Dishonored. Reform Advocate. Clarkneld. In 1873, the year in which silver was demonetized, the average yield of wheat per acre was 12 bushels and the market value of the product was 814 59 per acre. In 1894 the average yield per acre was 13 bushels, but the market value of the crop from each acre was only 86.48. The country ’s entire wheat crop brought $323,594,806 in 1873; in 1894 the entire crop brought oulv 8225,902,025, No theory of overproduction can account for this tremend ous decline in the value of this cereal for the acreage of wheat has increas ed only in proportion to the growth of the country and the increase of population. An acre of corn yielded on an average 811.41 in 1873; in 1891 an acre’s crop brought only $8.10. The crop from an average acre of rye brought 810.04 in 1873; last year the value of an acre’s product was 8b 84. Oats in the year 1873 yielded on an average 810.37 per acre, even though the average quantity of grain per acre was only 27 bushels; in 1894, with our boasted high prices for oats, the average acre yielded only $7.10. It is quite safe to say that this year the value of each acre’s crop will be less than 84. Water Shrinkage in flinnesota. A paper on this subject which was read by Walter C. Brewer before a late meeting of the state forestry association is being punished in Farm, Stock and Home. It shows that since 1805 there lias not been such a prolonged era of scant rainfall and of water shrinkage in this state, and that it is doubtful if there was ever before since man occupied this country such epoch as now prevails. Mr. Brower with reason looks on the situation with alarm, but of course is unable to suggest any immediate rem-edy. His article concludes as follows: “Seventeen years of steady water shrinkage without any material reaction is a condition that way well arouse the alarm of all thinking men. It is too plainly evident that nature has lost her equilibrium. She is forced to use her water supply faster than she receives it, and while her reservoir lias been large she has well nigh drained it arid there is little doubt but that the constant failure of rainfall to meet the constant demands will continue. .Even if several years of abundant rainfall does occur, it will help but little toward restoring the lakes, springs and small streams that have vanished or been reduced until they are mere shadows of their former state.” The Highest Patriotism the Best Religion. Minneapolis Times. Aristotle preferred the ordinary rather than tile extraordinary proof of love to ones fellow man; the unobtrusive reasoning which says:    “J    |uVe healthy and comfortable home, will: pictures in it, aud clean dollies to wear for myself; if I love uiv neighbor as myself, let me refuse to approve of laws mat favor the rich at the en pp n se of the poor, or support a political party that does not make wise and helpful legislation for tim great overburdened masses its first consideration-let me show by my speech, my influence, my vote, that I realize that the highest patriotism and the noblest religion is that which labors aud sacrifices to lift the struggling and disheartened, often im bruted masses to a plane of contented, intelligent, self-respecting manhood and womanhood.” J?** Attention, Potato Growers!
