This paper is dlie nmcial'paper of Kos- auth county awil the city of Algosa, . If tbe late 'municipal elections all over the country mean anything politically, it is encouraging to the Republican party, j There -pill bo lots of comfort for tbo' Boiesites in quoting a tfcw things that Tama Jitn says this wedk about the prosperity rff lowai The {Republican party in Kossuth wen- ty neefls a good, relialble blood purifier to put its system in proper condition fof'Uic campaign next fall. , Thomas B. Recd^the of the 3Fifty- first 1 Congress, will -not wield the gitorsl in the '-Fifty-second. 'The Democrats will ha«'G occasion to k<r.ow that he is however. Wonder if GOT. Boies has appointed wcath'er prophet Poster commissioner of weather probabilities. His predictions sure about as discouraging as Sowreign's J6bor statistics. Gov. Boies'calamity stories afoaut Io\va and weather proxphct Foster's predictions •as to our weatteer for the nejct twelve •months arc certainly enough to'discour- a ^age immigration. If we have Ju»o weath • '»er and sunshiae all the year Where will *atill be as rnuc'k"truth in. Mr. Foster's pre(dictions as inGov. Boies' calamity stories. It is not too •early for the Republicans - of Kossuth county to think amd plan in earnest for ths-campaign next Ml. Some steps ought tio be taken immediately looking towaril a reorganization of the party for a 'determined campaign. Let us have an organized/ and an •Bll-pull-to- gether kind <o'f a campaign neirt fall, and Kossuth will come back into lime as a reliable Republican county. The Dubuque Telegraph ofIffiarch 9th, devotes a coJ-amn editorially to showing that "there ie-a condition of war between the farmer's alliances of Iow-a and the Business Men'te association," and moralizing on the -situation. This is an injustice to both the alliance and Business Men's association and it is to be haped that the' '^Telegraph "will be frank $n acknowledging its mistake and pwtiing the Busieess Men's association before the its right light. The initial number of the consolidated Independence Bulletin-Journal'lias reached us. In the .salutatory editorial it is announced that "the Bulletin-Journal will be inflexibly republican is politics; Tiot from a mereuaipulse of partisanship, •or at the sacrifice of its individual judgment and conscience, but becauco of its deliberate conviction that in republican principles is found the safest theory of government, and in that party tfeo greatest proportion of. intelligence and virtue." May the "consolidation" be a success as an •inflexible RepubUcaa paper. The:flepub- -lican party stands greatly in need^of just >that kind of inllexibkness. The Democratic situation is b&eoming Slndiciously (^implicated, a natural result •af too many lot the Democratic leaders 'trying to talk at once and do alittteinde- spendent thinking on tfee silver question and other matters. G»v. Boies haasprof- ited by his New York oi-ty experien«e?aud is keeping a close meuth while other pssminent democrats are trying to get the "stuffed prophet" with his anti silver ideas into imagined harmony with the free silver plank that is to go into -the next Democratic platform. The Democratic partycan't staud independent ideas, and'the present chaos will reign supreme in the Democratic camp until the whole party falls in line again with the stereotyped idoas issued from the party headquarters. Under the direct tax bill which last week received the signature of President Harrison, Iowa will receive $384,374. This is a refund of money on, account of the general governmeat, collected from the state during the war by direct tax. The question now arises, what will we do with it all. Iowa is out of debt, and has plenty of loose change in her reticuJe.Tbe state has already provided for her asylums and other public institutions—which by the way are models for other states tp ! pattern after. No state in the union—and we say it with pride—takes better caje of its unfortunates than Iowa. If it ^asn/t . for a certain class of our citissew srfcp insist upoca lying about the state, drinking free whiskey and repealing <our prohibitory taws, Iowa would have Very little to askltor. A JtECOIW BtifflB'l) IT, The Fifty first Congress \ias certainly left'*, record behind it for 'Accomplishing sonssthicg. What it has'trccomplished is due in a great measure to tihe courage and the patriotism of Spedker Reed. Had tbo minority been su'Eerad to carry out its openly advertised program of obstruction and delay, nothing could have been accomplished. 'The object of all vrparliamentary law is primarily to facilitate and expedite "business, not to furnish an instrument for dbstruction and delay. Speaker Reed Irad nbe sense to appreciate this principle <anS the courage to vin dicate and establish it in the face of a filibustering opposition and one hundred years of established custom to the con-, trary. This new idea of the function <tfi parliamentary l«w went far to make it! possible to pass the McKinley bill, tbe! silver bill, the irestal subsidy bill, the administrative customs act, the copyright law, the anti lottery law, the immigration law, the judiciary law, the world's I'nlr bill, the direct tax bill, the agricultural iaw, etc. H«d the United States Senate only possessed a Speaker Reed the record of the Fiftyisfirst Congress would iieve been far mono commendable. OUT. Weather /Prophet Foster talks .'6!ius gloomily about the weather for 1S94<r.nd 1892: There will be more of the most destructive tornadoes, the most severe blizzards and cold waves, the deepest snows, the greatest rainfalls and other extremes of the weather from May 1 this year to May 1, 1892, than have ever b.etn witnessed by the people <now living. As my 1-oaders well know, I am not, given to sensational predictions, and I will probably be censured for these forecasts, but the occasion demands all that I say about it ,aa<J time will vindicate my action in the mart/tor." This is-enough to scare the liver'out of any one .placing implicit confidence in a weather'doctor. "We are not very much alarmed .ourselves, as our faitk in. the weather asaan is gauged by his past'record for reliability. We are not prepared to say, however, that Mr. Foster has no grounds (£or his predictions, but we shall sow our oats and plant our corn -as usual and stay'by Iowa. AffALSfl On Mtfreh 3rd there was an article, coming afr-a special from Duba^ue, in which it was stated that the State Business Mea'-s Association has seat notices to jobbers that they must stop selling goods to -the Alliance, or the members of the state association will step buying goods of them. I have endeavored to find out where this originated, but so far have bee-a unable to do so; but ,1 have this to say: It is false in every sense of the word, .and whoever started it knew it was false at the time, and intended to do the State Business Men's Association some harm. The only reference (made to the farmer^ alliance at our congestion at Cedar llapids was in its, favor. In our president's.annual address, his semarks in regard .to tbe Farmers' Alliance were these: "Just how far the alliance movement cornea within, the scope of Uie discussion it jfl difficult to say, but that it demands some attention, none will4oubt; whether w© shall meet organization with counter organization, or whether It is one of those misguided movements which will best work its own cure, I Jeav.e with you to decide." The committee that was appointed to report on tlie president's address, report- as follows: VSth—Resolved, that this .association, and all bussiness men are-so closely allied, svith the farmers aad the farming interacts that whatever measures may be deemed wise for the one, is regarded of equal interest to the other, and it is the sense of this meeting that we act in harmony with them in all things for our good." It is simply ua attempt to make hard ; feelings between-.the state association and' the alliance, which I am very sorry to; see, as this aunottoe accomplished. What is in reality good.for the alliance, is good for the retail merchants, and the state association so feels -toward them, and I wish to state for the benefit of all those that may read that article, that none of the local associations in Iowa have any right to form such a .resolution in their local association. Tjiey have a constitution and by-laws to go fey, and anything «f this kind is contrary to them. I will eay further, that the Dufcaque association has never formed any such resolutions, for I have a report in my office of every oae of thoir meetings, and in fact, of my own traveling men, Mr. C, H. Simpson, is secretary of that association. It .is simply a put up job, and I hope that every one of our members will preserve this paper, and if any of tfee farmers come in (which they undoubtedly will) that they will show them this article, and show them how false the item in the Register is. We are willing to have every thin,g that is done in our state or in our local associations, put in print, but we are not willing to have false statements made about our association, and wo hope in the future, if anything of this kind is sent ia to any of our l*rge daily papers in Iowa, that they will drop me a line to find out whether it is true or not as I will b« more than pleased to give them Mil particulars in any case. Our state association is not for the purpose of regulal/iag such things as this, it is for the general good of the retail merchants and 'tlie consumers of Iowa. A. 8. BUIINELL, State Secretary. -I'fi'o, hereby, solmnly swear that the wbowe is true in every .«ense of the ward, for I have a verbatim report of e?ery word that was said at the State Convention which was held at Cedar Rapids, 'Feb. 24, 25, and 26, i391.

G*i"e» for Winter KvenlngA. many another good thing the prettiest of all the parlor sports this season h*s been taken by the manufacturers froitt the days of our grandmothers. This is "gfDtce hoops," which "befo' the wall" was ; .tue great winter amusement. It is calculated to bring out everything that is moist graceful in a pretty girl's form, but of Into the taste for the game has suffer&tl sadly. That other old time game, "slmttle- coclianrt battledore," has also come iu for a ybod share of renewed interest, and a number of improvements and variations are offered this year. One of the bestj requiring as it does a quick eye and live action, and offering the most delightful opportunities to a graceful girl, comes from France. The battledore is shaped not unlike a blvmderbus. The barrel is iibout twelve or fourteen inches long, and siioots the shuttlecock into the air by means of a strong spring. To catch it properly and gracefully in the mouth of the battledore requirea any amount of the most invigorating exercise.—N'«AV York World. A'Town with City Mothers. Some'public spirited women in a winter resort in Florida have formed themselves into a society which they call the Village Improvement association, and have .assumed the duty of keeping the streets clean. They employ a ina-n to pick-up every scrap of refuse which litters the pavement or gutter, and, as this factotum is practically in the employ and under the authority of every woman in town, whose vigilance is "unceasing, •his work is thoroughly and efficiently accomplished. At intervals along the pavement they have caused to l.«e placed neatly painted barrels, with a bib of verse begging the passerby to utilize them by tossing into them the bit of paper, cigar stump, or fruit skin which would otherwise be thrown down \mtidily. They have also organized the ••hildren into a society pledged not to throw any kind of litter into the public ways. That town is a inbdel of Utopian cleanliness, and suggests the idea that "city mothers" instead of fathers might bo successful — Exchange. A Louisiana Apron. Aii apron exhibited by Mrs. Laura C. Holmes, and designed and executed by Mrs. Florence G. Thotnpkina and Miss Mattie Cooney, took a prize in the Na- tional^Aprou bazar at Kansas City tlie other 'day. The iipror* was made to represent Louisiana, and very ingeniously combined six products of the state. The body of the apron was of raw cotton batting, with a bnncli of sugar cane painted in the left corner, -while in the right corner rice, glued to the apron, appeared to be tumbling from a pocket rnaite of the red flowering leaf of the banana tree. Moss outlined the left edge, and qrange peel, cut diamond shape, was sowed about the bottom and up-the right side. A belt plaited of la- tanye completed this really artistic and unique specimen of tho, handiwork of two New Orleans ladies.—New Orleans Bicayune. Faded Hoses for Perfumes. .A now and dainty device fills the house with the odor of June gardens at comparatively small expense even in January. It was in a dimly lighted parlor tluit I felt stealing over my senses memories of summer timo, stray bits of the flowex lore Philip Marston reveled in, all -within sound of the roar and rattle of stone paved, busy, bustling New York. There were no flowers visible in the room, but still the faint, breath of roues permeated the dim li-'at and puzzled as well as delighted in:'- r.util a servant i-amo in .-mil threw back tho hangings, when I discovered close beside- me an o'dcl little crumpled basket of delicate china .filled to the edge with loose rose leaves tossed lightly in one upon another. A single fragrant rose, too much faded to be ornamental, will yield more perfume in this way than a fresh flower standing upright in a glass, and all manner of little odd shaped dishes are utilized as receptacles. A braided straw hat of Dresden china tied up with blue china ribbons and heaped with the petals of an American beauty rose is a delight to sight and.«mell as well—New York Letter. Enterprise of 11 Busy Matuo Teacher. A Waldo Bounty (Me.) teacher not yet out of her teens, besides her school duties, finds .time for considerable outside work, aad it is claimed has distanced all the farmers in the vicinity in making money by raising sheep. Out of four sheep last year,she has made $50. Providence favored -her a little, for the four sheep brought forth eight lambs, all of which lived and were sold at a fair price. Then she had tike four sheep sheared, carded and. spu» the wool, and after ischool hours knit it all into men's heavy mittens, for whfeli she found a ready market.—Bangor News. Oxfovtl and Woman. The statute providing for the admission of women to medical examinations at Oxford was rejected by only four votes.
