Dodge statistician of the agricultural department has issued a Small Book upon the Industrial Economy of the United states which presents some of the striking results of his investigations of the statistics of manufacturing and agricultural productions of the country for Twenty years. Within that period owing to labor saving machinery agriculture has More than doubled production with a smaller proportion of farm labor and now threatens a glut in farm products unless this proportion shall be further reduced. The question of an outlet to foreign markets is discussed and the fact shown that the stir Phis of Tond products merely pays for imported food and beverages and that the Trade Oak not be extended without a ruinous reduction in f�rice3. In the distribution of labor in occupations in this and other countries As shown with reference to comparative Thrift and Industry it is found invariably that inequality of the distribution of industries retards developments that exclusively agricultural nations Are always poor. Tiie phenomenal Progress of the Quot Central West Quot is presented in deductions from statistics showing that halt the cultivated area of the United states lies in one fourth territory producing More than three fourths of some of the principal crops. The fact is shown that the Ohio Valley is the most fully occupied body of land. Ohio a Viii per cent of her surface in farms Indiana 88. Illinois 88 4 Kentucky is and no other state As much. It is shown that nearly three tenths of the manufactures of the United states Are produced within Quot Central West in less than three tenths of the of the country within half a Century from settlement.

He now eve -. to Send More troops tonight but ordered several companies to be in readiness to go to the front to Morrow afternoon should they be needed. At the two latter places named they feared an attack to night. When the governor left Logan for the trip to the mines this afternoon he telegraphed on to All Points he wished to consult with the leading miners and at some of tie places on the arrival of the train there were As Many As r 00 Idle miners who had gathered to see and hear what he had to say. At Nelsonville the demonstration was of a massive character there being Between 600 and 700 present who had carriages and a band to escort the governor to the Public Square for the purpose of making a speech. They bad appointed a committee earlier in the Quot Day to ask a number of questions As the governer progressed and they made it quite interesting. The Appeal of the governor was 1 for the Observance of order and the importance of their doing their part in this regard. It was at this Point he ordered the troops to the Points named and the miners were not very Well pleased Over this move As they had supposed the governor would not make such unless he was forced to do so in reply to the demands of the sheriff for men he specially stint plates they shall be used Only for the purpose of protecting life and property.

Cly Nico sept. 1.�?i met to Day an sex congressman who occupied a seat on tiie Lle publican Side of the House in the forty fourth session. He a a gentleman of National reputation but More As scholar and lawyer than politician. No Man enjoys higher repute for integrity in either Public or private Lite. His accustomed re.?Erve save Way for an hour while the character and political methods of James a Blaine were under discussion. A of All men Quot said the sex congressman Quot who have paraded in politics Jim Blaine is the most daring schemer. His Brilliant and Knightly record is made up largely of lighting out of scrapes. Totally devoid of physical courage he will resort to hazardous tricks dependent on Brazen impudence and Sable Fuges for Success. Now there is not another Man in America with the reckless audacity to browbeat a Congress and nation As did Elaine when be pretended a Reading of the Mulligan were Vou in the House on that occasion Quot i asked. Quot i was within a few feet of Blaine when he gave that performance. Connecting what 1 saw there with incidents subsequently coming under my observation and to my hearing i have Long since doubted whether it was the Mulligan letters or Blaine read on my requesting something narrative of what he had seen and heard the gentleman proceeded Tkal Neli i Sivate Sereta by. Blaine being on the Republican aide and surrounded by republicans the democrats could not Sec certain shrewd by plays of his. He had manuscripts of some description in his hands but i doubt if the nearest member on either Side of him could have had a glance at the Chir Graphy holding the sheets As he did. The nearest Man to Blaine was his private Secretary who sat immediately beside him. I was where i could note the movements of the hands of both. The instant Blaine concluded the Reading from a Sheet he promptly placed it into the waiting hand of his Secretary and that functionary As promptly relegated it out of the Range of neighbouring eyes. When Blaine Nad so delivered the last letter Sheet his Secretary quickly arose and glided out of the House. Quot you remember that immediately upon his receiving the letters from or. Mulligan Blaine retained the Legal services of judge Jere Black. It was then As now an Enigma to me Why Blaine it Quot innocently in Possession of those letters should employ a lawyer though i believe he retained two Matt Carpenter being the other. It was just after Blaine had begun what he indicated to be a Reading of the Mulligan letters that a gentleman walked into Jere Black s room and said Blaine is Reading the Mulligan letters to the House Black sprang to his feet exclaiming what that can not be it is True said the caller he was Reading them 1 when 1 left Black in a tone of disgust i said Why the Man a test have gone out of i his wits i claim is a silk k . I Quot Jere Black and i boarded in the same i hotel and in neighbouring rooms. The next j morning i was in his room we being quite intimate As friends Wien he was Reading in i a morning paper what Blaine had read to the a avg i Well re kiember the his f smile and the twinkle of the Bright eyes of the astute old lawyer a he pursued Down the Coli tons what his client had read. What does the old gentleman think of the Mulligan letters i asked of Chauncy Black an hour later. He thinks Blaine is a Slick fellow answered Chauncey in a Sig agricultural and Mechanic in fair. Special to the Sentinel Parks 111., sept. 1.�?the thirtieth agricultural and mechanical fair of Edgar county opened this morning under the most promising auspices. The grounds embrace forty three acres in an elegant Grove Well watered and splendidly equipped with All the Halls Sheds and stalls needed for use.

The physicians state that Scott s head is badly crushed. Vandyne was locked up and will be tried this month. 6cott has a wife and one child. House and beyond detection. Then he Felt j Safe to assume the aggressive which alone he was shrewd enough to understand could save him if anything could. With the Evi Dence of his fraudulent game played of the i House Well out of the Way Hov dramatically a he ranted in the role of injured innocent to one knowing Blaine As i did his sinister methods there were entertaining As those of a performer of legerdemain tricks. What do you link of my speech he asked me shortly after he had Fia Ishel. Jim i responded you surpass anyone i Ever Kne a a in capacity for slipping out of scrapes Quot do you know anything of the reasons Why investigation of the Mulligan letter j affair was not pressed to a conclusion by the j House committee Quot queried. J for fullest information As to that you j should Call on Proctor Knott of Kentucky. By the Way the Indiana Damoci Acy should. Import Knott to speak and ask i Iii to Nike the Mulligan letters his theme. His would be the great speech of the Viiu Saign. Get him to Tell of the Caldwell dispatch and j what super induced Blaim s sunstroke. I Knott received what Purdoi ted to a a j cablegram from London sign 3il Josiah Cut in Well exonerating Blaine from Cami Dimity in i the Little Rock Bond transaction Knoll suspicion de that the line land of Blaine might have wrought in the construction of j the message and he held it for developments. A development soon appeared in Blaine s charging Knott with super Sung a Telegram addressed to him As chair an of the com Mittee. Knott went to new Quot Fork and pro cured positive evidence Blaine hid i dictated or inspired a cablegram to London requesting the sending of the message which Knott received. Knott was ready then to produce the cablegram Alon with evidence that Blaine was practically t a kalhor of it. In a few hours More Knott would have confronted Blaine with the document when to a Friend rushed into Inott s presence Vith the announcement Blaine has been pros rated with a sunstroke was 1 on Knott Quot the reports of the physicians who saw Blaine at the time if made at they talked to intimate friends would not convict old sol of the charge Blaine mad3 against him. Two of them declared Blane s symptoms unlike those of Quot any patient they had Ever treated for sunstroke Knott a is stopped from pressing the investigation by Blaine s friends declaring it cruel mean Etc. To do so when Blaine was dangerously ill and possibly might die. To a private Circle of friends Knott insisted Attiat the great orb of Day was not justly chargeable with the stroke which kept Blaine from appearing before the committee and furthermore that he had no physical ailment from which he was Likely to be immediately retired from political life. was within a few Days Well enough to travel and taking French leave of the committee Betook himself to Maine. Again his friends protested against further action by the committee in his absence. Knott was and anxious to adduce the evidence of Blaine s parentage of the Caldwell dispatch. Jut Blaine remained away out of Range of Knott s committee to the end of the Jay Eye see was not brought for his first attempt at beating the record. The betting was even against beating l 0, and to >0 in favor of 1 11. Dave Gideon the runner was taken out to accompany Jay-Eye-3ee.

Quot we Are notable to decide which of the animals by Ouight it to the Virgini i Sale but one that came from Dye of Ohio was sick with of the Luigs supposed at the time to have been the result of exposure. This is most Likely the origin of the disease and if the suspicion proves Correct it makes the matter still More serious. Dye is the most Speculator in Tersey cows in the country.
