We dislike anything in the line of petty, ^personal warfare, aud find more pleasure in furnishing our readers with news, than in filling our columns with jibes and 'thrusts at our competitors, after the manner of the Courier 'and the Upper Des Moines. We wish to call attention to the fact that in all our fights with these two papers that they have always taken the ••aggressive. Now in regard to the matter of our method of securing subscribers. We are not offering the REPUBLICAN for 75 cents, to say nothing of a map thrown in, and no one in the employ of the REPUBLICAN has any authority to make any Other offer than $1.60. As to the U. D. M. w.e haven't heard of its being able to (secure subscribers on any terms although it has had a man and a patent grindstone out for some time. Whether the grindstone is given as a premium with the paper or not we don' u know, but we do know that our high-toned and strictly honorable cotemporary has an idea that it is legitimate journalistic enterprise to approach canvassers for a competing paper with propositions to buy them off and induce'them to violate their agreements aud stop work, and we know that its loud •mouthed and limber-jawed editor is just •enough of a sneak to put that theory iato •.practice, though not smart enough to to succeed at the sleek game. As to the Courier's methods of securing subscribers: There are people in various •quarters of the county who will be able to explain to a certain extent, how the Courier's list took on its sudden mushroom growth last year. A year's subscription to the Courier has been kept oo hand by merchants in Kossuth county aud given as a premium with: a purchase Of calico or a barrel of salt. 8» n?e Me *9fornjed ou good authority.

Comfortable living rooms. Inquire of tf _ M. STARR. Facts About Ammonia., The name of the chemical agent ammonia dates back to remote antiquity. In Europe the chief so'urce of the supply of ammonia up to the latter part of the last century was Egypt. It was made originally from camel's dung collected in the neighborhood of the temple of Jupiter Ammon, hence the name ammonia. The droppings were collected in March and April by Arabs, then dried and burned and the Boot collected. This was sold to merchants, and ammonia was collected from the soot by a chemical process. It is now almost entirely made from crude gas liquor in illuminating gas manufactories. Only half as much ammonia is made in summer as in winter. Hence ammonia is always more costly in summer, Furthermore, ammonia is extensively used in the manufacture of artificial ice.— -New York Sun. iu Berlin. The number of lunatics iui the asylums of the city of Berlin r which was 1,683 in 188&T83, amounted to 2,038 in i!889. This showB a very large increase i» the number of insane- persona relatively to the growth of the' population. In the period referred to the increase in the population was 88.4* per cent., while the increase in the number of lunatics was 59.79' per ce»t. The numheD of insane persons in confinement in the whole Qtennan empire rose between Jan. 1, 1881, and toe game date in 1886, Sum 94,270 to 48,889, being anlnor^aee of 84.5 in the five years, w agSSnet aju in- ef 8.6 per cent. In the genera' ' iUli'UWtuo uuu ment dealers in this city, aud showing him the article in The Journal asked him to state Avhat discounts were allowed to hini by the manufacturers of the identical articles describe:!. This merchant is a Democrat and a 'tariff reformer, 1 and The Plain Dealer can have his name, but not for publication, if it desires to investigate the accuracy of the statements to follow. The figures to be given may also be verified by calling on any local dealers ii? the articles mentioned. The list of articles compared was very larga, but we shall confine the comparisons hero made mainly to those named in The Plain Dealer. "In The Journal a manufacturer of steel and malleable iron garden rakes offers them at a discount of 70 per cent, •for export only." The same manufacturer sells them to the Cleveland dealer at a discount of '70 and 5,' equivalent to 7H per cent. off. He offers scythes 'for^export only' at '40 and 10 off,' equivalent to a discount of 40 per cent., and to the Cleveland dealer the same goods at '50 and 5 off,' equal to a discount of 52| per cent. The same manufacturer offers the 'Chieftain' horse rake No. 1 at 40 off 'for export only,' while to the Cleveland merchant he allows '50, 10 and 2i off,' a discount of OGJ per cent, from the list price. The discount on hatchets 'for export only 1 is 50 per cent., and to the American dealer '50, 10 and 5,' equal to 57£ per cent. "On table knives and shears the discounts offered are the same 'for export only' and to the home merchant. A manufacturer of feed cutters offers his 'No. 1,' with two 6Jinch knivea,at $18.80 per cent, off 'for export onlyy and the Cleveland merchant buys Hie same cutter for flO net. The manufacturer of grinding mills allows the home dealer 10 per cent, more discount than the foreign dealer. Barn door sheaves a^d hangers are offered 50 off 'for export*bnly,'and 00'o$ to the home trade. The discounts on wrenches tunl vises are the same in both cases, and on lawn nwwers also. and admitted by all as tne largess ooay of men ever assembled in convention in Brown County, the following statement was made by Mr. T. J. Clark: -I am a farmer by profession; I belong to that class of individuals whom our Democratic friends claim are being robbed by Protection. Let us investigate and see. if there is any truth in their statements, admitting the fact that there is a tariff to protect the manufacturer and laboxing men upon every article we use in the house or on the farm. The blankets under which I sleep that cost me §12 per pair fifteen years ago can be bought today the same weight and land for $6 per pair. Cotton and dress goods have decreased in price since 1800 in like proportions? The ax I use cost me 75 cents, a better ax in every respect than the one my. father bought iu '57 for a $3 bill. The wagon I use cost me $50, and a better wagon than my father bought during the good old Democratic Free-trade days of 1856 to '60 for $140. In fact, my friends, there is not nu article we use in the house or on the farm but what can be bought from 50 to 800 per cent, cheaper than the same article could have been bought for before there was a protective duty placed upon these articles. Will They Exhibit? Actuated, doubtless, by the most philanthropic and unselfish desire to prevent every poor family throughout the length and breadth ot this land being forced to contribute to the profits of manufacturers who are unprincipled enough to make goods here that can be made in England, Englishmen of all degrees, conditions and kinds are now straining every nerve to prevent the enactment of the McKialey bijl. One of the, latest efforts of that kind was made by 3&. Jesse Collins, a Liberal member of parliament, who asked if England wouJ4 exhibit at our world's fair in case that bill was passed. There is on® thing that England •will not exhibit; tjfcat is, an average sample New Goods. Galbraith is daily receiving new goods of all kinds. Everyone is invited to call and examine goods and get prices * Large, new stock of cheap counter goods.
