Tile election is over and repoits of campaigning have mostly kist tlieo-interest, but there are some phases of the recent struggle that will become memorable, ana this is especially true regarding some of the experiences of Mr. Bryan. All will now agree Hint his personal canvass was the greatest and the most wonderful ever known, and it is equally certain that no other living man would have been equal to it. I he leports of his tours and meetings read like the accounts of stupendous celebrations, or of a mighty and continuous carnival of excitement and enthusiasm. Chicago last week was the scene of his final efforts, and compared with Hie immense crowds that greeted him aud the intensity of the interest manifested towards him, the masses that visited the world’s fair were puny and tame. Every state that Mr. Bryan visited can finnish its chapter of amazing incidents, and as party feeling subsides everybody will become interested in reviewing them. Generally the daily papers gave extended reports of Mr. Bryan’s meetings and speeches, and it is now known mat all the correspondents who accompanied him became devotedly attached to him and all earnestly favored his election. Of all the reports none are more entertaining titan those of James Creelman to the New York World, a paper strongly opposed to the great fusion candidate, and we are sure ail our readers will enjoy the following report of a day’s meetings in Indiana: Mr. Bryan’s second and last day on the great Central Indiana battle-field was a day of desperate fighting from County to county and to-morrow he I enter Illinois lo lace the enemy in the last grand assault. The young leader realizes to-night Unit eleven short days lie between him and the end of the most extraordinary economic struggle in American history. News reached him on the train today that Mr. Hanna’s money is already moving like a tide through Indiana and that the republican leaders are try ing to g**t democrats to move out of tlieir districts so that they may lose their votes. All day I; • L *s *1 dared that the war of money stand ads which lins rent the democratic party will not end on election day. Again aud again lie said that democrats who desert now can In ver come back except alter long penitence aud mortification. From sunset until early morning bonfires danced on tile night landscape. Ile attacked Benjamin Harrison iii tits own state, accusing bim of trying to advocate a gold standard under the cover of bimetallism. He lashed his audience into madness by appealing to them not to consent to foreign domination in American (Inane-*. Tile fierceness of the conflict in this state was apparent everywhere as ihe special train (led from district to district. Great meetings, processions aud barbecues were iii progress and hundreds of orators were at wrork, and iii the midst of all this thunderous confusion Mr. Bryan towers up a born leader of men. lie may be defeated, but if he lives he will play a great part iii the immediate future. I have watched Iii rn day after day, and he seems to grow stronger and more self-reliant every hour. Nothing depresses or daunts him. His marvelous voice seems indestructible and Ids t rain is tireless. With a demoralized and disorganized party, embarrassed by a thousand complications of populism, Mr. Bryan seems to understand that tin* result of this best I mi of strength in Indiana and Illinois depends upon himself, and he has concentrated all his powers in this one supreme effort to overcome the almost irresistible foic-s in tile field against him. rids has been a day of color and strite. From the train windows the pictures of Bryan and McKinley could beseen in alternate farm-house windows. Great crowds of men and women swept into the towns and cities where the multitudes roared about Mr. Bryan’s carriage and the rough roads sprawling through the farms were crowded with wagon loads of demo- Milk Pays the Best of AII Farm Products. Tile average price of butter in the New Yolk market for July iii the past five years has been 19.58 cents. The average for July in the same market this year was obout 15^ cents. This is a decline of less than 25 per cent, w Idle all other farm products have declined at a much larger per cent. This, says Hoard’s Dairyman, shows that the dairy market is one of the most vital and elastic of all others. JSo, w’hen creamery patrons and others get discouraged, they should ask themselves, “What else can I raise on mv farm that will pay belter than milk V The great difficulty is that so many men have such poor cows that all tho profits are eaten out of the business iii that manner. Look where you will, search everywhere and you will be right will* us. values that positively can’t be matched. \V cetin in vc Nelson Bro’s Dept. Store.

Children’s Dongola Button Shoes, sole leather tip, new coin toe. - $1.25 (•rats Hundreds of young girls with silver spangled blue skirts sat mounted on white horses at every stopping place. Every white horse in Indiana seemed to be iii view today. As tile train neared the western section of the state the crowds grew larger anti more purely democratic. Mr. Brvau and his wife threw bushels of ll >vvers from the end of the train. At times the demonstrations of the crowd reached the point of adoration. Men v\ ho could not reach his hand touched his coat, legs and feet. Some of them yelled till tears ran down their cheeks. Many were hysterical. Mark the political crusader as he moves along in the wild procession—a tall man in a well-worn coat, w itll a dusty soft felt hat pulled down over his travel-stained face, his eyes burning like coals of fire and his head and his powerful, priestlike face radiant with hope and courage. Around him swells the defiant shriek of his followers that “Wall street shall not prevail against the people!” So it was today at Decatur, Rochester, Huntington. Peru, Delphi;), Frankfort, Lafayette, Crawfordsville, Green Castle, Brazil and Terre Haute. And so it will be in Illinois tomorrow. It is an irreconcilable con dict. it is hard to give a reliable estimate of the effect of Mr. Bryan’s first day iii central, eastern aud northern Indiana. Great multitudes roared about him everywhere, but the republican managers distributed yellow badges and urged the McKinley men to mass themselves at ail points. The result was bewildering. Mr. Bryan’s way lay through the strong le-publican district, and it was not until lie leached Fort Wayne tonight, Hie democratic stronghold of the state, that he swept ail before him. There were times when the rival crowds were on the verge of riot, notably at Muncie, v,here ten or fifteen thousand McKinley min stood in the streets jeering and hooting at the free-silver leader as he passed. Never has Mr. Bryan shown his strong quanti*® to belter advantage than today. All through the savage tumult he has been serene and undismayed. At times he has been for ten minutes continuously surrounded by yellow ribbons and republicans shrieking McKinley’s name in his face. Whatever else Mr. Bryan may be, he is a man of steel nerves. The mob seems to inspire him, and Die more brutally hostile a crowd is the calmer and bolder he grows. I have known him for years, but he revealed himself in a new light today. Mrs. Bryan, too, faced the howling republicans smilingly at ber husband’s side, flinging a rose here and there to a rapturous free-silver man. The scenes all along the route were wildly picturesque: processions of farmers on horseback, wagon loads of white-clad maidens, wonderful drum corps from the cross-roads, great camps of men and women surrounded by farm wagons, and everywhere defiant republicanism, loud-lnnged and desperately provocative. Mark Hanna answered tile free-silver challenge all along tile way. Mr. Bryan declared that he felt confident of Ins election. The crowds were enormous, but they were largely made up of republicans. The yellow badges showed that. At Anderson there was a distinctly democratic crowd of about 20,000, and the outpouring in Fort Wayne tonight was overwhelming. Mr. Bryan laughs at the idea of his defeat, and asks those of his party who view the outlook with alarm how they account for the giant, demonstrations in Ohio and Indiana.

Lls Bisctii Maters Eighty-Three Tots in the Albert Lea Hardware Company Cooking Match. Children in Charge of Ladies Roll Up Sleeves and Rival Their Mothers in Baking. The Interesting Educational Event Proves a Complete Success. Never in tire history cif Albert Lea bas such a unique aud altogether attractive trial of skill boon witnessed as that which was seen Saturday afternoon at the emporium of the Albert Lea Hardware Company. Standing at a low table were a group of pretty girls ranging in age from 6 to 11 years, engaged in making biscuits. A large number of inteiesUd spectators were congregated about them. It was a cooking contest inaugurated by that popular firm. The prize to be a war did to the one making Hie best biscuits was a toy Buck s Brilliant Bange,complete and full nickled, with full set of utensils. Any girl between the ages of 6 and l l was allowed to enter lip to the close of the contest. Each one made a pan of biscuits, and from this three of the hest were selected to be passed upon by the judges, and the others wrre served with dainty cups of coffee to the spectators. A roster w as kept and at the end of Hie cooking all who were registered were formed into a club to be known as the Buck Albert Lea Cooking Club. Annual contests of this kind are given for premiums. The girl who won the prize at the contest becomes the president. Tho lady managers or judges of the contest become the governors of the club for the ensuing year. Mrs. Ramsey efficiently acted as superintendent and the following were the judges: Mrs. J. F. Diedrick, Mrs. G. E. Brainard, Miss Gertie GeisMer, Mrs. Ramsey and Miss De Smith.

There was a constant stream of lady \ i a tors to the store where the contest was held, and many men also, and all were served with a dainty cup of coffee and biscuit made by thecharmingliitie cooks. The object of the contest was to illustrate the sup*riority of Buck’s Brilliant Range,which is sold in Albert Pea by the Albert Lea Hardware Company, and it was a test that satisfied and pleased every one. AV. II. Owens, of St. Louis, representative of the makers of the range, was present at the contest and extended comtesses to a1! visitors. After the event was ended a group photograph was taken of the lassies who participated and it will t.e on exhibition at the storeof theeuterprising firm named under whose auspices the contest was held. The judges, not know ing which contestant made any of the eighty-three samples of biscuits, carefully tested the samples, and where all were good and many very fine, they.decided that Myrtle Fritz, the 11-year-old daughter of J. II. Fritz,w ho is an old soldier living in the third ward, had won the first prize, the beautiful model stove, and Pearl Rosencrans, the 9-year-old daughter of L. ii. Rosencrans, was awarded the second prize, a lovely toy set of china dishes. The winners of the prizes happen to be cousins. All the class joined in congratulating the winners, anti the event ended happily for all. <i**-i ii- South Carolina s Liquor Law. J In an is3iia not long since of the North American Review, Gov. Tillman of South Carolina tells how the liquor dispensary law of that state operates in actual practice. With a degree of enthusiasm which, perhaps, would not be shared by a more critical analyist, he regards it as a grand success, and so popular that he believes the bar tender will never sell liquor in the state again. He is equally confident that before the next meting of the general assembly the illicit Hallie in liquor will practically come to an end. The governor confesses that—to him at least—the contract for canying tin* law into effect was unexpectedly large. Uie work of preparation for the control of so mammoth a business consumed four months. Even after the law had been in operation four months, lie says “the ramifications, complications aud ultimate growth of the business were still subject of conjecture and wonder.” All of the enormous whiskey traffic of the state has been turned into one channel, flowing to the central distributing depot at Columbia. The three stories of agricultural hall, a building 167 by Jo feet, have been turned into a bottling establishment; fifty-four bottlers are kept busy ten Hours a day, and even at this rate* it is almost impossible to keep the local dispensaries in stock, though not more than half the liquor now drank in the state goes through the dispensaries. Large quantities were bought in ad- • 4 itll* j Vance, and almost every Ham that cnida the state brings contraband liquor amongst its freight. He finds, how-I ®y*r* that some of th*4 railroads ar** ; Gelding a measure of obedience to Hi** I law, while ot liers ope:, Iv U* |y it or lend j assistance to the smuggling of liquor;-i into the state. | Financially the governor r» gar*Is the , system as a'rcadv a success. P.im g 5 the first four mouths the sale* had ; amounted to $166,643; expenses of th*-I state dispensary $75,566; expenses id ! county dispensaries $3U.b54; net pr< iii of state dispensary $32,ltfo; of touritv dispensaries $20,295. Ender the licence I system the counties received $81,loo. and the state nothing. “If,” says The | governor, “the towns cease their nu* I reasonable and senseless opposition, i and three-fourths of the liquor which under any conditions will !*►» c Slimed in that st ile shall pass through the dispensary, the revenue of the towns will not be decreased from what it was formerly, the conf.tier m i receive as much, and the state w it obtain a revenue equal at least to bol J, of these.” The g tvernor then a*-ts forth the billow ing claims for the dispensary : 1.

Ile§ava that under nu circumstance will the number of dispensaries ev>i exceed 125, and believes thai ihe consumption will be reduced forty or fifty per cent. The South Carolina experiment was looked upon as Quixotic in iis first inception, but it must be admitted that it is getting interesting. The absumption of the business by the stile smacks of paternalism, and is taking from citizens the profits of a business that has long been leg iliz^d. The excuse is, of course, that the state has the moral right to take under its direct control a business that is productive of evil in individual hands. How' it will all end we snail know more satisfactorily after the experiment is a year or two older.
