BOOK AND JOB PRINTING. The equipment of the BE^UBUOAN CWIlce for Book and job Printing is unsurpassed 'in this •county. Steam power. J3?~ Advertising rates made known on appli- 'catton. This paper is the ofllcial papev of Kossuth county and the city of Algona, tion of so many millions for pensions. Does the Courier remember anything about the Democratic war that made pension legislation obligatory upon the country and saddled an actual debt of billions of dollars upon the people? The Democratic situation wasceth yet the 'more complicated. The leading papers of the state are getting in the habit of quoting "Tama • Jim" Wilson's farm articles. How any true friend of temperance can support with his ballot the Democratic party of Iowa and call himself a consistent man, is a-mystery to the REPUBLICAN. {General Joseph E. Johnson is acknowl- • elgeti to have been the greatest military genius among'all the southern generals, •and one 'Of tun greatest soldiers this • country ever produced. ' Let the people of Iowa remember that the'Sioux Citv way of dealing with the saloon is the Democratic way, and let k them not forget it next fall. Save us from a Democratic governor and legisla- j'ture, save us from, the saloon. THE INJUSTICE OF "JUSTICE." Over fourteen years ago Warren Clough, who was then living at Stewart, Nebraska, but who was formerly a resident of Buchanan county, Iowa, was convicted of the murder o^f his brother and sen- i| tenced to the -state penitentiary for life. I] It now transpires that Mr. Clough is an I innocent man,'the real murderer having! confessed to 'the crime upon his death bed. The ^great magnanimous state o-f Nebraska now grants Mr. Clough a pardon. "Bufwho," asks the Minneapolis Journal, "can give him back his life." All his property was wasted in the attempt to prove his innocence of the crime, aed after being unjustly convicted >and confined in the penitentiary his wife'Gb- tained a divorce and married another man. &fter robbing him 'of the best 'years of his life, stealing away his good'iiame, his liberty, his property and his 'family, he is turned loose-upon the world to commence life over again. Nebraska ought to make some compensation for this great wrong. A fall compensation could never be measured in money -or computed in dollars and cents, but it would be a disgrace to make no at- tempt'at atonement. Let Nebraska do whatsit can. condition of our farmers, I did not draw on Democratic friends for data, except in a very limited sense. I drew the evidence from the other side, and I wish to impress upon your mind the fact that if my statistics are impeached, hundreds of Iowa Republicans will share the responsibility and dishonor, yourself included." Yes, there is it! You now let the cat •out of the bag! You '-'draw the evidence from the other side." It was a piece of political chicanery you were up to? Eh? What an honest statistician! You have been acting the part of the plausible Jeremy Diddler who goes around among the farmers with a contract to purchase agricultural implements and get them to £ign an order for the same, and the next thing they hear of is a notice to come to town and pay a promissory note bearing their signatures! My statements in my letter of the 17th, in regard to the farmers' corn crop, and his proper use of it for profit, you have not dared to answer, and youcannot controvert or refute them. Your obedient servant, SAMUEL McNurr. Now is Iowa's opportunity, in the opin- 'ion of the Burlington Hawkeye, to recover the advantages temporarily wrested from her during the last decade by the great tide of immigration to the cheap- lands of the trans-MissouriTegion. Iowa is'about the best place after all and the people are beginning td'find it out. •Again human life has'been sacrificed for the superstition of the ^Christian Science fanatics, This time it'was down in Linn County, and two 1 little children were the; victims. They were taken sick with diphtheria and fell into ' the hands of • Clrristiata Scientists who''have since fled fearing the indignation of the people. Rev. Marc D. Darling, of the First k Congregational church -of-Sioux City, in lis sermon last Sunday evening took oc- lasion to rub it in to the Democratic layor of that sinful town <&nd declared i Mayor Palmer could close up every Joon in the city, within twenty-four Fours, tight as a drum head—if he cared to. AMERICAN OPINION. New Tork Press. In asking 'Tennyson to write a poem celebrating the opening of the World's Fair the commissioners in char-goof of the project have made an absurd blunder. Tennyson, 'who was among the first of the world's -singers, is now ;in his literary dotage, incapable of even third rate work. A« the poet laureate of England, bound to celebrate in fu'lsomc style the.history of the royal family, he is particularly unfit to deal with an event that will illustrate the triumphant progress of republican institutions on this continent. Why did not the commissioers apply to one of the great American poets still living to write the salutatory poem for. the x fair? ., Why did &hey not call on Whittier or 'Holmes or; Lowell for the symbolic soug that none but an American and a ^Republican coukl iitly-pen for the occasion? SIFTINGS. liarltt'JMotureH for the Farmer. From the New York Press. The'carpet industry of Great Britain, according to the official figures of the Board of Trade, pays average annual wages of $170.32. The carpet industry of Massachusetts shows average yearly earnings of $348.28. (Past Black Henrietta Satines and new Dress Goods of all kinds at (Mbraith's. Non-Comduetorg of Heat. Grottn'l cork and some other barks, and the sawdust of the soft woods, as well as the charcoal made of these substances^ aro very good retainers of heat. Lampblack also works well. When the thing to bo kept hot is at a very high temperature, some light, incombustible powders are very suitable. Among ihe best of these are fossil meal and the cal- cined magnesia and magnesium carbon-ate of ,the druggists. Fossil meal consists of the silicious skeletons of microscopic vegetables, called diatoms, exceedingly various in shape and size, the very largest of them hardly reaching the length of the hundredth of an inch. It is found abundantly in some peat meadows and in the bottoms of ponds. Both fossil meal and magnesium carbonate have been largely used in covering steam pipes. Obviously, when the same light substance is tried in both the first and second apparatus above mentioned, and the results differ, it must bo owing to the inability of the substance to hold the included air still in the first arrangement. So powdered plumbago or black lead, which is very slippery, shows nearly twice as much transuiissive power in one case as in the other. Loosened asbestos fiber also lots through about twice as much heat in the vertical arrangement as in thq. horizontal. Yet this fiber may be split up exceedingly fine, bu#the great difference iu its behavior as compared with cotton or wool must be owing much less to its own greater specific conducting power than to the smoothness and inelasticity of its fibers.—Professor John M. Ordway in Popular Science JMtanthly. Galbraith's New Spring Goods HAVE ARRIVED.

Beggs' Cherry Cough Syrup has gained its great popularity simply on its true merit.

We have noted that: some of the leading agricultural papersflook at the question aswe look at it, and believe that auch aa action up- t on the part, of the farmers would-be suicidal. We *vill publish next week en editorial from the last issue of the Homei ; stead bearisg on this question to which Irwe would call the attention of eveeyone 1—particularly our farmer, readers.

Times - Republican: Our -free trade friends pretend great indignatidn whenever "British gold" is rnentkraed in connection with the propagaada of "tariff reform." Perhaps the following cablegram may throw some light on the subject: .[Dunlap's Special Cable Dispatch.] LOHDON, Feb. 9.—A curioas libel case has ,just been before the law courts in Sweden. It appears that a Swedish new-s paper. Matala Posten, accused certain persons of high social position, one being the late general director of customs and another the present lord lieutenant of the county of Stockholm, with .having received subsidies from the Cdbden club amounting to £12,000 for carrying on a free tcede agitation in their country. Tho-court dismissed the libel, the writer pleading that all the statements were true, acd claiming that Prince Bismarck had been able, through the German embassy in London, to obtain a copy of the club's secret accounts, and these accounts fully b0re out the statements that had been made. The writer of the article obtained Jiis information in sutih a way that there could be no question vabout its authenticity, and he further alleged that these secret accounts would be very soon published 1 in Berlin.

The Handkerchief'in Ifrance. Lace was used to ornament handkerchief s in France as early as 1 : 634. In .1648 they were embroideredJUnd had tassels at each of the four corners. In the time of the Directory, that period of fashionable eccentricity, they •underwent many vagaries. Those ladies who did not care to wear the pocket attached to the girdle and wished to iiay-e the hands at liberty tucked the fan into the Vslt, slid the purse into the corsage and had the handkerchief carried by a gallant, to whom it was necessary to apply when it happened to be needed. If the handkerchief carrier could not be found, or Avas insidiously flirting with another woman, and tlie nose imperatively demanded blosying, the case was serious. When 1 the French blow the nose, it should" tie'remembered, it is for all it is worth. No one who • has not witnessed the performance could ever believe the nasal paysages possessed of such a sonorous quality, and when the effort is several times repeated one might easily imagine himself listening to the Angel Gabriel rehearsing for the last judgment. The French fashion in this respect is not to be recklessly imitated like Paris styles in laces, silks and satins, fans, dresses, bonnets and other things pertaining to female attire.—San Francisco Chronicle. i qu i Li McNUTT SPEAKS.

I don't know what you me&n by this last phrase; but if you meaa anything dishonorable, or iu any way discreditable it is a malicious slander invented and uttered by yourself alone. In my letter of the 18th to you I did not allude to politics or to political parties. But in your reply to me of the 28d inst. yqu reveal the fact that your corn circular was a political dodge adroitly gotten up for low party purposes. Here j),re your own words: "When Goy.

Records of great earthquakes fill a large «pace in the world's history, and instances where people have perished by thousands from this cause are mournfully numerous. An earthquake accompanied by a volcanic eruption destroyed the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum and buried most of their inhabitants in the ruins in the year 79, A. D. The entire world was shaken from pinnacle to foundation stone in the year 543. In 557 Constantinople suffered terribly from an earthquake, which killed thousands of its inhabitants. In 742 an awful shock visited China, India, Persia and Palestine, killing hundreds of thousands of human beings, besides beasts beyond calculation. In 1158, 20,000 person perished from an earthquake shock in Syria alone; in 1268, 60,000 were killed or buried alive in Ciliciu. In 145C, 40,000 were killed in Naples; In 1531 Lisbon, Portugal, had her first great shock—that which killed 30,000 people. In 1620 Naples was again visited and had 70,000 of her people taken away by the earthquake demon. The next year the Schamaki was constantly rocked by earthquakes for three months, during which time 80,000 persons were killed.—St. Louis Republic. A Difference in Boys. There is a vast difference between the ways and ideas of amusement of the small boy uptown and the small boy downtown who makes his living by selling papers, shining muddy boots or being messenger. For instance, the downtown newsboy scorns to throw snowballs as a usual thing. He will shake dice, "match" coppers or smoke cigarettes and discuss some melodrama playing in lus favorite Bowery theatre, but he absolutely declines to thro\y snowballs. On the other hand, his more innocent brother seven or eight miles higher up on the island still clings to the good old fashioned sport of "pasting" everything and everybody with a snowball. That's all association, of course,—Now York Tribune. • Borrowed States Saved Mr. Flower's IJfe. "Like all boys, I had my trials and vicissitudes," said Mr. Boswell P. Flower.
