YOURS ALWAYS, World’s Crop Is Short, Demand Will Increase and Price Certain to Be High. Writing to the St. Paul Dispatch under date of Nov. 14 concerning the prospects for better prices, Fred A. Johnson says: If the farmers of the northwest will hold what wheat they have,’ the prospects are more than even that they will realize a dollar a bushel for it ere May 1,1897. The world’s crop is short. There will be a greater demand for bread stuffs within the next six months than for any like period .during the past three years. These reasons, regardless of any bull or; bear movement in Chicago, Liverpool, or any where else mean? a higher price for wheat. The departments^ state under the j to the care and feeding of the cow.

The meeting in this city was , held in the council chamber, and while it was supposed to have. been for the benefit ot the patrons of Albert Leal creamery, but fetv of them were present, although there was a pretty good attendance. Prof. Ilaecker s talk was an informal one but .was highly instructive. He j gave I acts of fresh and striking inter-1 est to everydairyman present relating I D We Have Goods to Sell!

McKinley’s Narrow Margin. As the final returns of the election are received it is demonstrated how very scant the majorities are in some of the states that decided it. It is the most remarkable outcome ever known in a presidential election, and j stifles the confidence of Bryan’s supporters that he would win. nereis a list of seven states whose electoral votes gave McKinley a majority: ||    ElfeU/ral California..................9 Delaware...................3 Indiana.....................15 North Dakota..............3 Oregon..................... 4 West Virginia..............e Kentucky...................12 used. Protein is the vital element and j foods should be selected accordingly. I A great mistake is made in feeding too much heat-producfng foods or carbo-1 hydrates. Prof. Haecker left in the evening for I Abilene, Kansas, where he lectures on j dairying under the auspices of the Rock Island railroad company. He in- \ tends to hold other meetings in this county in January.  --- ntST BE FULL-FLEDGED CITIZENS. Cloak and Fur Department.

A Ale Kink y’$ maturity. 2,(MMI 1.300 22.000 1.200 2,400 12.300 200 42.000 Thus it is seen if Bryan had received about 21,000 more votes distributed proportionately in these seven states he would have been elected. Besides, Kentucky is so close that it is not yet certain which has carried it. Wyoming at last accounts gives one elector to Bryan and two to McKinley; Delaware one to Bryan,and South Dakota four to Bryan. Leaving out Kentucky and South Dakota, one vote in Wyoming and one in Delaware and McKinley has 259 electoral votes, or 35 more than the required number to elect, and Bryan has 174. The latest reports state that Kentucky’s votes, on the face of the returns are divided; but each side is claiming the state. Thus it is seen as it now stands McKinley’s electoral majority over Bryan is 85. Cleveland’s over Harrison in 1892 was 132. But owing to his tremendous majorities in New England aud the large eastern states McKinley’s majority on the popular vote is nearly a million, and it settles the question that whatever may have been the reasons or pressure that influenced voters, he was the choice of an overwhelming majority of the entire people. -------- America’s Worst Product. Henri Labouchere, member of the British parliament, eminent political economist and editor of Truth, a noted London newspaper, has the following to say concerning the shoddy nobility of America w ho are now engaged in celebrating their success in the recent election: “America’s worst product is its dollar-ocracy, whose members have literally nothing to recommend them. The odds are that either they or their parents acquired huge fortunes by the most questionable means. As a rule they are ignorant and vulgar, building big houses in order to dazzle by ostentatious entertainments, and buying pictures, for which they only care because they have been acquired at high prices; selling their souls to any one who will enable them to hobnob with royalties and their daughters to any one who will confer a title upon them, despising their own country and institutions and regarding themselves as in every respect superior to others on account of their dollars, lf the United States is not to become a mere plutocratic and oligarchic power these worthies, who have increased and are increasing, must greatly diminish.” Farm at a Bargain. For sale at a bargain, the southeast quarter, 160 acres, of section 22, town 101, range 23, in Mansfield, Freeborn county, Minn. For terms of sale and other particulars inquire at the Standard office.    47tf No Voting Hereafter on First Papers. The amendment to the constitution restricting the right of suffrage to those who are citizens of the state six months and of the United States for at least three months prior to the election at which they wish to cast their ballots was carried by a large majority at the last election. This will exclude ail who have not taken out their -‘second papers,” and makes the declaration of their Intention to become citizens as absolutely of no consequence in matters relative to voting. This may disfranchise thousands of voters in the state and no doubt many in Albert Lea and Freeborn county. If papers are not taken out at once, it will lie illegal to vote at the spring election. It will be well for all persons of foreign birth to make appplica-tion at once for the papers entitling I them to all the rights of full citizen-1 ship, else the matter may slip their i minds and they will be prohibited from I voting. ---- The Companion Calendar. It is said that the expense of making I the Companion Art Calendar for 1897 was so great that had it been published i in the usual quantity it could not be j sold for less than one dollar. Four ; beautiful female figures are reproduced ! on four folding pages. Each figure is j lithographed in twelve colors, being a ; true reproduction of the original watercolor painting, which was selected be- | cause of its excellence of design and ; charm of color and tone. The size of j each of the four folding pages is IO1* I by 6 inches. It is by far the best piece I of color work the Companion has ever I offered. Both as a calendar and as a gem of the lithographer’s art, it is so I attractive that it becomes a valuable addition to the mantle or centre-table of any room. It is given free to all new subscribers sending $1.75 to the Companion for the year 1897, who re- j ceive also the paper free from the time the subscription is received till Janu-1 ary I, 1897. Celebrating in 1897 its seventy-first I birthday, the Companion offers its j readers many exceptionally brilliant j features. Fully two hundred of the I most famous men .and women of both continents have contributed to the next j year’s volume of the paper. For free illustrated prospectus address.
