This paper is PRINTED BY STEAM POWER, Everything has gone wrong. "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark." And we think it must be the Democratic party, misrepresentation and Cobden Club funds did it. The Republicans will be in a minority in the next house but it will be a decent minority. "Oh that estates, degrees an<5 offices, were not derived corruptly, and that clear honor were purchased by the merit of the wearer." Sioux City Journal: The Republican party lias been put through a thrashing machine. The farmers did the thrashing, while the Democracy held the sack and took the grain, cheerfully giving the farmers the chaff. "Once in grace, always in grace," is a doctrine that won't hold good in politics, -as evidenced from the number of Republican backsliders this fall. But "the vilest sinner may return," and there is hope yet for both the backslider and the Republican party. The Hon. I. L. Woods will continue his agricultural pursuits and Dolliver will help make it interesting for the Democratic majority in the next Congress. Now that election is over, we are willing to admit that that was a very cute dodge on the part of the Democrats—pretending that Mr. Woods was a farmer and an alliance man in order to catch the farmer vote. All the farming he ever did, he did with his mouth. In what we have to say in another column of the weakness of the Republican county organization, we mean no reflection upon Senator Chubb. The Senator was well known to be a very busy man when he was appointed to the position, and he probably did what was expected of him and what he conceived was expected. If his efforts had been supplemented by earnest work all along the lino we should have succeeded. But all the earnest work in Republican ranks was done by those who were in for "knifing" the ticket. We need more voluntary work on the right side and we need to have an understanding that the regular organization shall be active and aggressive. Des Moines News: It is noteworthy that though Iowa shows the influence of the Democratic tidal wave in the election of aix Democrats to Congress, the Republicans of Iowa are left in better shape for the future than their brethren in any oth- state except Ohio.. They elect all or most of their state ticket and carry nearly two-thirds of the counties, thus havirig the nucleus of a legislative majority next year. The reason for this is undoubtedly the fact that the Republicans of this state have taken up and, with some help from their opponents, solved or partially solved two of the problems that are pressing forward in the minds of the people for solution—the railroad question and the liquor question. Parties have these* issues to face, and the more boldly and unequivocally they grapple with them, the better they will fare with the people, The Cedar Rapids Gazette thinks that if prohibition had been made an issue in, this campaign, the Republican state tick,et would have been defeated by a large majority. It is possible. Bad not: the tariff as a national issue overshadowed everything else the Democratic party in this state would doubtless have forced the campaign partly upon the prohibition question. High license or prohibition was the principal issue upou whjch Gov. Boies was elected and the Democracy is of the opi&ion that in its opposition to prohibition it holds a. winning card. It is altogether probable that in tbe next state election the Democrats will entrench thewsejves on their former grounds and again appeal to the whisky element to put them into power, fhe Republic^ championed prohibition And by it must stand or fall. Tbe RBFUBLIOAN is in favor of an active and vigorous attempt to enforce prohibition throughout the state and » firm ji^ by ttt« prohibitory law as 'Such ALGONA, KOSSTITH COUNTY, IOWA. WEDNESDAY, NOV. 12, 1890. No. 6. part of the party in Iowa ought to make the state overwhelmingly Republican. A half-hearted fight for prohibition with a vigorous campaign on the other side might result in another Democratic victory. TRADE BOOMS. Trade still booms, says Monday evenings Dubuque Telegraph, one of the leading Democratic papers of Iowa. Ev erything was going to perdition as result of the McKinley bill a few days ago, according to this same paper. The Telegraph reports the volume of business, both domestic and foreign, to continue large beyond precedent. The wool trade, sayS the Telegraph, is active and firm, rolling mills have full orders, the glass trade is fair and Uie tobacco trade improving. The foreign trade for October will surpass that of any other month in the history of the country. Exports from New York show an increase of $9,000,000 and imports about the same. "McKINLEYISM." Never before since Thomas Jefferson opposed the federal constitution and the tariff measures of Alexander Hamilton has the Democratic party achieved such a sweeping victory. Republicans were prepared for reduced majorities everywhere, but no one expected such universal disaster to the Republican party. The McKinley bill was a bold measure, pass ed by a party vote after a long and bitter contest. The Democratic party to the man was opposed to the bill, the mug wump press was generally arrayed against it, and it had not a few bitter enemies among acknowledged Republicans. "McKinleyism" was the issue of the campaign. The Republican party came before the country and based its claims upon the suffrages of the people largely upon what it had accomplished during the present Congress in the way of tariff leg islation. In fact the party had no other alternative. The Democratic party and its allies forced the issue of the campaign and planned, by a species of lynch law to condemn Republican tariff measures to death and to execute them without the fairness of a trial. The Republican party was taken at a disadvantage. The McKinley bill waS 1 - misrepresented and lied about as only'Democrats can, misrepresent and lie. The possible evils of the bill wore exaggerated and magnified to hideous proportions. With all its en • emies arrayed against it, and with nothing to recommend it but the logic of protection and the prophecies of the Republican party, the McKinley bill was hurried before the people for condemnation and by the bill, the Republican candidates for Congress were forced to stand or fall, and a great majority of them fell. The people have declared against the new tar iff law in the unmistakable tones of 185 Democratic majority in the next House. There is now but one of two policies for the Republican party to pursue. It must either bow down to the passing judgment of a majority of the people and partially or wholly repudiate the McKinley bill, or else stand by it through thick and thin until the law has been thoroughly tested. A backdown at this juncture would be humiliating, and would only add fuel to the fires of the Democratic party. If the Republican party adheres to its campaign position upon the tariff question and time should demonstrate that position to be wrong "McKinleyism" will have served the office of grave digger to the party of Abraham Lincoln. If on the other hand the new tariff law should stand the test of time, 1893 will witness a, reaction and the greatest Republican victory since Appamatox. Republican leaders evince no disposition to back down. Harrison will probably advise a firmer retrenchment in the old position, in his annual message to Congress. The Republican party will walk on quaking ground for the next two years but it is not the first time that the party, has been confronted by H critical situation. It was born in the hour of a crisis. The political party which dares to accomplish something is sure to find itself occasionally in a critical situation. Tbe .Republican party is tbe party of aggression, the party of reform. It has been in tight places before, but it generally pulls through. We have faith in the a. O. P. Put Your Huna Into Hot It is mote or less true that the naked, hand may be plunged with impunity into wiojten. naetal, M, Bouligny, whip made a special study of what he called the "spheroidal" state of bodies, proved on his own, person that it is possible to plunge the hand into molten metal and yet sustain no injury. The theory if this: The hand of the operator having been carefully moistened with a very volatile liquid, such as alcohol or ether, is to be plunged rapidly into the molten metal; for some oasea the natural humidity of the akin, may do as well, The moisture is thrown by its sudden contact with the metal into the spheroidal state, and there is therefore, no actual contact between the hand and the inftal, this tey«r of apojr AMONG" THS QUACKS. lfo*ort»tlon of th» Largest Dock farm In America. While I was at South Easton, Mass., I visited what la claimed to "be the largest duck farm in America. The proprietor, Mr. James Ranldn, has been engaged many years in the business of hatching eggs artificially. It was December when my visit was made, and he had on hand only the fowls kept for breeders. They were the white ducks known as the Pekin, and were of a very good size, averaging ten pounds each. In the various yards he had several hundreds. He keeps them warm and dry to induce laying, which usually commences about Jan. 1. The eggs are gathered up by the bushel basketful, and each duck is expected to contribute about 140 to the pile during the season. They commence lajing when five months old. Last year he raised 10,000 ducks. He made them weigh ten pounds per pair when nine and ten weeks old, at a cost of five cents per pound. A part of the year one man is constantly employed butchering fowls for market. The feathers bring quite a nice income. He is constantly improving his flocks by keeping the choicest fowls as breeders. In his hatchery, which is an out door cellar or "dugout" as western people would call it, he has six large sized incubators and one small one. In the latter he keeps eggs which are used to fin up the spaces left in the large machines by the removal of the eggs that are found to be infertile, after a certain number of days. The capacity of one of the large machines is 600 hens' eggs, or 425 ducks' eggs. When the hatching season commences—which is as soon as eggs can be got—the business is so arranged as ti> get a setting of young ducklings every four days. These are taken to the brooder— a long building where the fledgelingH can cluster under artificial mothers, and are kopt warm by heat carried in pipes from the boiler at one end of the room. Here svlso is the largo kettle in which vegetables iiro cooked—anil the little bipeds are kept constantly growing on a diet of scraps and succulenl; vegetables and grains. A wind mill pumps water which is carried ui piper, to the different feeding stations. This ducks do not have water to swim in. Mr. Rankin says "they are bred out of all desire to go into the water." Wlion it was thought necessary to cl'rivG, them to a brook near by to wash, r theih •*-man had to stand -over them "to keep them from coming oiitof tho water. If it were generally known that ducks did not require water to thrive many people would find a profitable business in raising them. I noticed several things that made the raising of clucks preferable to tho raising of chickens. 1. They are not infested with lice. 2. They grow very quickly. 3. They can be yarded with great ease; .When it was thought best to change their grazing ground all that was needed was to inclose them with woven wire, held upright by sticks driven into the ground at proper intervals. Rye was sown to give them green food in winter. The duck yards were well set with plum trees, which the birds kept free from insects.—Cor. Rural New Yorker. Hens in Hot Weather. Hens are already exhausted and reduced in flesh from laying, and the period of moulting upon which they are about to enter is still more trying. It is wise, therefore, to look well to the flocks at this season. Such as are not wanted for next season's use, or cannot be otherwise disposed of to advantage, should be fattened and marketed. During the month of August old fowls command high prices, or at least higher prices than they do at any other time in the year. Those that are to be reserved should be allowed to rest as much as possible. The cocks of the larger breeds should be separated from the hens. If confined in limited runs do not forget to furnish the usual supply of shells. Throw into their runs occasionally a load of fresh sand and gravel. Give at least every other day a meal of soft feed, composed of corn meal and bran in equal parts. Above all, be sure that they have plenty of green food and supply of cool, clean water.—Poultry World. Point* of Interest. A rich New Zealand sheep grower says the mistake American sheep raisers make is in breeding for wool alone on high priced lands and not paying enough attention to mutton. His own sheep are a cross of Leicester and Lincolnshire on original merino stock. Thus he has wool and mutton both. |je ships 2,000 frozen mutton carcasses to England every year from his far Australasian home, which is 1,000 miles southeast of Australia* Dakota seems to be running wild on sheep. Sheep can be fattened most rapidly when they are from one and a half to three years old, A terrific fight between two stallions, Jrijh and Norman, is reported from the Murphy stock farm in Pennsylvania, ifeither rails, clubs nor pitchforks had any effect on the two infuriated brutes. Jt is well to remember that $ pistol fired oft suddenly and repeatedly over the heads of fighting stallions wUl affright them and cause them to torn tail and trot away from each other. The point in raising hogs now is to get them ready for mqel&t at the eajrl- fcst stage at which tlwy can profitably "- monflh* with the best care and feeding. Young hog pork is better than old hog pork. e The sense of smell in horses is marvel- oualy octite. A mare recognizes her colt by the odor. When a horse is uncertain whether any new thing is dangerous he smells it thoroughly and makes up his mind accordingly. Pekin ducks are very large and beautiful, but it is doubtful if they are as hardy as the common varieties. Swimming in water seems to lame and injure them. Pekin fanciers say they should not be allowed to go swimming except occasionally.
