Connecting the centers of the three circles, an equilateral triangle is formed each of whose sides is equal to the diameter of one of the circles. By re; ducing the 100 acres to rods, dividing by .7854 and extracting the square root of the quotient, the diameter of each circle is found to be 142.729 rods. Then each side of the triangle i rods, and its area will be S1FTINGS. Sqmo loira Farm Ing Fays. Burlington Hawkeye: "Farming doesn't pay in Iowa," but John Y. Stone, attorney general, sold the apple crop on his Mills county farm, on the trees, last fall for $8,000. Willian. McDonald residing between Colfax and Mitchelville, last year raised off of eighty acres of ground 8,000 bushels of potatoes, for which he received 70 cents per bushel or $5,600. This is $70 per acre, or nearly double what the land wonld sell for. From the same tract the year before he harvested 15,000 bushels and sold for 12% cents per bushel, and made a reasonable profit. It makes us feel sad for such men when we read what hard times they are having trying to eke out a living on Iowa laud— the "mortgaged lands" of poor, downtrodden Iowa. Mr. Cleveland and Ills Duties. Mr. Cleveland did not attend the great banquet at Chattanooga where tin plates made from new basic steel under the encouragement of the McKjnley bill were a featuere of the occasion. He sent a letter of regret saying he was prevented from being present "on account of duties" and so on. The "duties" that kept him away were probably the McKinley "duties," which made the southern steel men an the plate manufacturers happy, but carried the steal to his free trade heart. Secretary Foster: I believe that the McKinley bill will prove to be very popular. The lies told by our opponents about the advance ia prices are already dissipated. I confess that the magnitude of the defeat last fall may be deterring in its effects with those who had contemplated erecting new industries. The protective policy is distinctively Republican and will be maintained by that party. While the McKinley law does not meet the views of all the Protectionists, it probably comes as near to doing so as any law that can be framed. ^ Tariff Pictures for the Farmer. From the New York Press. Tha British linen industry, according to last summer's returns of the Board of Great Britain's hosiery average annual wages of industry pays $165.46 Those figures are from the official statistics of the British Board of Trade.

Mining, lumbering, grazing, fruit growing and agriculture are here carried on with a degree of success unknown in any other section of N. America, The states of Montana and Washington are now the scene of a large amount of railroad building, but the principal and most important line In these two, and in fact the only one traversing them from .east to west and reaching all-important sections is the Northern Pacific railvood. This road is the shortest line to Helena and Butte City, Mout., Spokane Falls Wash., all 1'uget Sound points, and is the only all rail line to'Tacoma and Seattle. The Northern Pacific railroad oilers special inducements to home seekers by allowing holders of second mass North 1'acific Co:isr tickets the privilege ot stopping ten days at Spokane Falls, Wash., aud all points west of there, Passengers are thus given an opportunity of examining- all sections of this great state at a saving of from 85 to SJO as against any other In the matter of accommodations the Northern Pacific railroad ranks first.

Each angle of an equilateral triangle is 60 degrees. Then, since there are 360 degrees in a circle, each of the angles of the triangle is one-sixth of the angular magnitude about the center of the circle, aud the area of each of the sectors formed by the triangle is one- sixth tlie area of the circle. Then tlie area of the three sectors is one-half the area of a circle, or 50 acres. Since the area of the whole triangle is 55.131 acres and the area of the sectors is 50 acres, 5.131 acres, or the difference, is the amount of laud included between the circles. The cost of 5.131 acres of }au<l at $25 per acre & $138.275. E. i\ T., Normal School, Trade, paicl average annual wages of $121.66.
