The eleventh district republicans last week mot at Le Mars to name a successor to Mr. Struble la congress. Something of a contest was had for supremacy, which narrowed to Struble and Geo.' D. Perkins, editor of the Sioux City Journal, the latter winning the nomination on the forty third ballot. Mr. Struble has represented the district four terms. He has made a splendid record and taken high rank among; the strong men of the West. He has usually been level headed and sound on the main questions. His constituents no doubt have acted very deliberately, =and while they were not agreed on the man at the start they were agreed On the measure of the man that was required for the succession. In their view of the situation their choice of Mr. Perkins is calculated to heighten respect for the gaily decorated with original water proof decorations of attractive colors and designs, and bearing in flaming letters the fact that it is a train-load of Quaker Oats from the Cereal Milling Company of Cedar Kapids.

He was the first candidate of the republican party for president, in 1856. Mr. Perkins, the nominee of the eleventh district republicans for congress was the author of the State platform, which has so happily united the republican party of Iowa. We predict that he will make that platform talk when he takes the stump. Even that ambiguous, dark and mysterious clause of the third plank: "Whether it concern domestic aggression foreign aggression"—He will make that fairly luminous. w6uld have to be paid for the salt were it imported instead of being made here.

To do this a change of the rules will be necessary, as at present there is unlimited freedom of debate, and the democrats would talk all summer oa the bill to prevent its passage. They have threatened to adopt that expedient to defeat the passage of the bill, and the republican senators have determined to change the rules so as to give 'the committee having charge of any bill the power to limit debate to a certain •number of'flays and to bring it to a vote. Any change in the rules that may be necessary to give the majority the power •to act upon measures after reasonable time for ddbate will be greeted toy the country as a good thing, irrespective of the immediate object suggesting it.

Manchester Press: The Manchester Dei ipcrat copies into its editorial columns, this week, a long article from the New Yoi k World, the drift of which is that the armors of this country are a lot of pau] ers, fast going .towards the poor hou e, and wholly unable to support thenfselves and their families.

Thevwhole article from the World is of "a piece of the above extract, a mere mess of foolislifalsehood. Last'•week L _ a young man came in to see the editor of The Press, to leara where he could borrow a few hundred dollars. He is a farmer, Hying near Manchester. Two or three years ago he bought eighty acres of land, running in deb't for the whole purchase money. Now he wants to borrow four or five hundred dollars, offering to mortgage his land for security. He has the eighty nearly Ipaid for, and in fact has stock enough to sell to make his last payment. And h£ wants to. borrow, now, not because hjs* land "has brought him in debt," but because he lias his eye on another piece'of land ad joining his, which he intends to, buy, soon. §2 oi three boxes for 96, T8E itors, olesale Bobt. by J?r, I,. i9-4»-yr $1,000 Can be wade to 9 (months Address; tm, OUarto Particulars fcee.

Boiling Soup to Baking Pastry. Comparatively few people, as they sit at their tables in the Wg hotels, have the least conception of how the food is prepared by the small army of cooks. To prepare a dinner requires many hours' work, and a meal twenty-four hours ahead is being cooked as another meal is being served. In all the leading hotels throughout the country the kitchen is a most interesting sight, and yet it is the most mysterious, as it is only on rare occasions that a visitor is allowed in the sacred precincts in the rear of the dining room. The cooking department in all first class hotels is kept scrupuously clean, aaore so, in fact, than any other portion of the entire hostelry. The cpoks and ussistants are always attired in clean, white jackets and caps; the ranges, pots, pans and kettles are always shining, and the floors look as if they had been freshly polished each morning. It is a good cook's pride to have his kitchen as neat as a pin and as bright as a dollar. The entire cooking apparatus is heated by steam, which can be regulated as the occasion demands, thus insuring the proper cooking of the food. KITCHEN WONDKRS. One of the wonders of a hotel kitchen is the potato masher. The potatoes are placed in the boiler with the jackets on. When they have become sufficiently cooked they are put in a machine called a "peeler;" a few turns of the handle rolls them out as cleverly pared as an expert could do if the potato was hard and raw. From the "peeler" they are put in the "masher," and here, after a few revolutions, they are found on a plate beneath, neatly mashed and steaming hot. The egg boiler is a clever invention. When an order conies from the dining room for this product, thu egg is placed in a wire basket and set in what seems to be a pan of water. In u second the cook has turned on the steam from somewhere and the water is soon bubbling all around the basket*. But a "short space of tirAe elapses until the egg' is on its'Vay- into the dining room. Porterhouse steaks are broiled in an instant. Two large broilers are kept hot by steam pipes, and ivpiece of steak is cooked almost as soon as it touches the broiler. Toast is perhaps the only article of food not prepared by steam, save the bread, pastry and creams. The carving stand is one of the niost interesting sights in a hotel kitchen. When the meats are cooked the kettles are lifted from the large pot in which they were prepared and are set in large holes in the carving stand. Steam circulates all around underneath and keeps the meat warm. In front of each kettle is a small pan in which is kept the sauces which go with the different meats. The carving stand is presided over by two expert carvers in white jackets and caps, whose knives are as sharp as a razor. AU the roasts and boiled" food is served by them as the waiters call for them. - OTHER PKATOBES OB 1 THE ROOM. During the dinner hour the cooks are kept busy serving the entrees, but at breakfast and supper, and for several hours preceding the noon meal, they are engaged in preparing or overseeing the cooking of all the food, .The pantry room is presided over by girls. They serve all the desserts. The head and the second cooks prepare the soups and entrees.' The .third cook sees to the roasts and the boiled piece*. The fourth cook is known as the "fry" cook, and everything that needs to be fried is given to him. He has but little to do at dinner time, but has his hands' full at breakfast and supper. The fifth cobjc acts as butcher, and sees that all fowls and game are properly dressed and prepared for the pots. One assistant gives his entire services to the preparation of the salads. Two cooks preside over the vegetable department, and everything on the vegetable, list is from their hands. One woman presides at a-big range and cooks waffles and cakes at a rate so rapid that they can scarcely be counted. The griddle is three or Jour feet square, and a great many cakes cooked see, there isn't "any use looking for a loca* tion until we have money enough to pay for the land, you know."~New York Weekly. Horse Racing In New Zealand. A New Zealand paper reports something entirely new in the sporting line, At a horse race the course lay across the sands at Okaroa bay, and, through delay, the tide rose so high that the horses had to swim some distance before the •winning post was reached. The result was that one of the animals, which would otherwise have been beaten, c&mo off victorious, on Account of superior natatorial powers. Told by tho Sewing Machine Man. "Gentlemen," said the sewing machine man, "one spring father and I had a sugar camp down in tho edge of the grove. About half a mile from us was a corn field owned by a widow, and this widow never picked her corn clean. On the other side was a man who owned a blind sow. She had ono pig, and thc-v ; used to go over into that corn field every day to eat corn. Right in front of our camp was a creek. At one place about forty rods from our camp there was a tree felled across the creek. This was the only place that the sow and pigcould cross. Of course the sow could not see to cross on the log, so the way they used •to do was for the old sow to take hold of the pig's tail and the pig would lead her across. Well, one day we were sitting in front of our camp when the old sow and pig were crossing that log. I said to father, 'Hand ine the rifle and see me cut that pig's tail off.' I took aim and fired, cutting that little pig's tail ofl smack smooth. The pig ran for the corn field, but the old sow didn't know which way to go. So father we/it over and took hold of the pig's tail and led the old sow clear into camp."—Lewistoh Jour- iml. \Vhen Woman Mails a Letter. Femininity in the postofBce is an amusing study. In the matter of dropping a simple, ordinary, white, every day letter, for instance, she affords an insight into the character of the average woman. The looker on had nothing else to do the other day than to watch this little operation for five miswtes. Out of thirty young women who went to cast then: epistles in the slot, twenty-two, by exact calculation, withdrew the-letter Txjfore quite letting go of it to scan both sides of the note to be "very" sure the letter was ' securely sealed, properly addressed, stamped, and to be certain no one could look through the envelope its contents. Out of these twenty-two ladies three had forgotten to put a stamp on their letter, and two had to add something to the address on the envelope< while another carried off with her the letter she had intended to mail.—Bostonx Kecord. > j 1 Of Its Own Account. "Somebody has taken my revolver out of my desk," said the religious editor, glancing round the room. "You didn't know it was loaded, did you?' asked the snake reporter. , "No, I didn't think so."
