The barometer has fallen to the lowest point ever known in this section, and dispatches from Denver say a storm is raging there. TO THE WATER'S EDGE. icmes And His Cure Was l "C. I. Hood & Co., Lowell, Jlasa.' "Gentlemen: "When I was 1-J-ye.ars of ago ".1 was confined to jny bed for sovi'ral months by an attack of rheumatism, and when I had partially recovered I did not have the use of my legs, so that I had to go on crutehes. About a year later, Scvof nl«, in tho form of White SweUings, appeared on various parts of my body, and tor eleven years I was an invalid, being confined to imy bed nix years. In that time ten or eleven of these sores appeared and broke, causing mo great pain and suffering. Several times pieces of bone worked out of the sores. Physicians did not help mo and I Became Discouraged " I went to Chicago to visit a sister, as It was thought a change of air and scene might Uo me good. But I was confined to my bed most of tho time. I wan so impressed with tho success of Hood's Sarsaparllla i'n cases similar to mine that I decided to try it. So a bottle was bought, and to my great gratification the sores soon decreased, and I began to feel hotter. This strengthened my faith in the medicine, and in a short time I was Up and Out of Doors To mako a long story short, I continued to take Hood's Sarsaparilla for a year, when I iiad become so fully released from the chains of disease that I took a position with the Flint & Walling Mfg. Co., and since that time have not lost a single day ou account of sickness. I always feel well, am in good spirits, and have a good appetite. I endorse Hood's Sarsaparilla for it has been a great blessing to me, and to my friends rny recovery seems almost miraculous. T think Hood's Sarsaparilla is the king of all medicines." WILLIAM A.

NEW ORLEANS, April 4.—One of the most destructive cotton fires on record broke out at 10:80 ;i. m. among some cotton on the sidewalk in front of the fireproof press on North Front street. The cotton was very dry and before the flames could be gotten under control four immense presses and 80,000 bales of cotton had been destroyed. The loss on cotton alone is over two million dollars, and the total loss will reach nearly three million. NO COMBINE EXISTS. Tho amount of seed to the ricre depends upon the quality of the seed and the seed bed and the season. Assistant Attorney CJeiicral Chillis' Rupert on the Wheat Investigation. ST. PAUL, April 1.— There is no wheat combine. Such is the result of the investigation which has been going on for months, and at the expense of $10,000 to the state. Attorney General Chillis has completed his report on the matter, and he states that he finds no evidence of a combination to control prices. What Erwin Will Do. ST. PAUL, April o.— While discussing the late wheat investigation during the evening W. W. Erwin said: "If the committee submits a whitewashed report, as I expect it will, I will fill the •tate house with farmers from governor to janitor and put Cy Wellington in the attorney general's chair. I will begin my work to this end five days after the committee makes its report." Iowa people are the best feature of Iowa. See how they help the starving Russians.

The late snowfall was a benefit to winter wheat, and to pastures. The weather was killing to exposed plants. The ground is very dry and either snow or rain is a blessing. A farmer in Nova Scotia writing to the Canadian live stock Journal says there are thousands of horses from 950 to 1,100 pounds weight seeking buyers, and nobody wants them. Same here. Small horses and low bred steers are bringing early wrinkles to the farmer's face these times. Both are easily produced. The great plains do it without taking off the coat to plow. They are not for us. Do not turn out stock to shift for themselves before there is anything for them to get. Feed out the corn, that is fed farther East, at increased prices. It pays other people to feed our corn; it will pay us. Eastern farmers find that it does not pay to fatten a milk cow after her usefulness in the dairy is over. Feed grown in Iowa and carried east to make poor grade beef will not pay. It does not pay to make poor beef in Iowa. It costs less to make a pound of butter, cheese or meat in Iowa than in any country we can think of. It costs less to grow a horse or anything that lives on grass and grains.

Mrs. Gregg had one of the prettiest weddings that ever took place in the Massachusetts town in which sha lives. But there was one odd incident of the occasion which a few of her friends who are in the secret recall with much amusement. Although a lady of quiet taste, Mrs. Gregg wore' something which certainly no bride ever wore- before. Her wedding present from her old friend Dr. Jameson was an exquisite affair of lace, embroidery and white satin ribbon, which he had brought from Paris. It came just as the wedding party were starting for the church. "What a lovely bag!" exclaimed the bride; "I am going to wear it. That will please dear Dr. Jameson;" and slipping the white satin strings over her arm she thought no more of it until after the ceremony, "That is a beautiful bag, and so odd." "1 never saw a bag like it. The material is beautiful," commented some of her friends. "I suppose the style is new," replied Mrs. Gregg. "Dr. Jameson brought it to me from Paris. I am delighted with it." "Did you put anything in it?" asked Dr. Jameson, who had been listening to this conversation with a smile that was suspiciously near a laugh. "No," replied Mrs. Gregg; "I'll put my handkerchief in. What — why — why, there's uo bottom in it. What is it, Dr. Jameson?" "Well," replied Dr. Jameson, "1 bought it for a lamp shade!" And it was a lamp shade, edged with lace and drawn up at the top with white eatiu ribbon.—Youth's Companion. We are apt to generalize too freely. If we say farming does not pay, we mean we are failures—not the farms. We say dairy ing does not pay, we mean we are not acquainted with dairying. We say cattle do not pay, which being iter- preted, means we know little about them. Be sure you make a good seed bed. It is absolutely necessary to a good crop. In small grain sowing it is ail the cultivating you can do. Harrow thoroughly. If the ground Is to'ugh sod use disc harrows or Acmes or anything that will pulverize, but by whatever means be sure to make a good seed bod. You will secure more certain germination of seeds and a more uniform stand. of people in other lines, we bear tettt* mb.hy that it has not been beneficial for farmer*. We have come to the tlpaii •when skill counts for much on the farm. The primitive ways of the past do not pay those who have brought them down to the present. The farmer who has been devotinff his time to a specialty can not abandon It and turn to another specialty profitably. The farmer who turns to merchandising can not compete now-a-days. The merchant who turns to the farm may live longer and learn, but he pays for his lessons, Skill tells and it takes long years to got enough to be valuable. It is pretty well settled that the cow will give more milk kept in the barn in winter all the time, than where she is turned out regularly, and time will show that steers will be fed most economically indoors where they are comfortable. We must turn attention more to the comfort of our animals to get more profit. Dear land and close competition require it. The cow does not need a tithe of the exercise she gets. She might go out on sunny days a short time, but chills lie in wait outdoors for the milk cow,' and chills dry up the milk. With regard to the feeding steer, he must lie down much of his time if he fattens well. He will do this most indoors. We Know all this is against custom, but custom just now is not making money for many farmers. Economy in production and excellence in products are our true watchwords. Every farmer should experiment with peas this summer. We need something more albuminous. If any farmer knows of a vetch that will grow well and not rust or mould, he should extend its growth. We are searching the world for such a vetch, and so far with no success. The vetch is more albuminous than the pea or than almost any other plant. It succeeds in Europe and in Canada, but so far it has not had attention enough here. If any farmer who sees this has a vetch that grows vigorously and is healthly, he will confer a favor by making it known. By all means grow clover for both summer and winter feeding. If peas will not pay and a suitable vetch can not be had, clover will help us out as a balancing ingredient to feed with corn. Indeed, it seems at present that clover is to be the complement that corn requires, as it grows well and suits our machinery. petience who go in debt .often get experience without making capital. It is wise for them before borrowing otbir people's capital to earn softie and learn how much effort Is required to earn, and next to save <i dollar. The earning power of labor here is great compared with most other nations, but the saving knack is not always so prominent. Whether a young man will become rich some day depends entirely upon his disposition to save. If ho gets the habit of saving ho will certainly accumulate. The road to wealth is a very plain one, but in traveling it expensive habits must not be companions. The last thirty years have made us acquainted with the sort who savo. They denied themselves what they could do without, simply. That was all the secret, and as money accumulated it helped to make more money. After this process went on for a while a debt was safely contracted because cost and income were well considered. Young people going into debt without the saving habit being first firmly established, are morally certain to fail. Clothes beyond necessity, cigars, billiards, buggy rides, dancos, liquors, jaunts and the like, are always shunned by the saving class, while wo have known them to give liberally to the church, the needy and the unfortunate. Self denial is evidently necessary to the development of vigorous manhood and womanhood. We think upon careful reflection that no young person should ever contract a debt until quite an experience is had in earning and saving. The effort to keep a dollar is a necessary training. Older people should count the cost very carefully. Money is cheaper than it was, but margins in business are closer.

RICE'S tlBaking Powder The treasury department has refused to admit, free of duty, stock from abroad that have not five sires and four dams and the collateral ancestry recorded. This Is In most respects right. There has been too much extemporizing in pedlgreea Some old breeds may be pure that have been isolated for ages, but we do not need them to any extent. We have plenty of well bred animals here for all the demand there is for them. If you propose to grow green feed this summer try peas and oats sown together. The Scotch green and Prussian blue pea will grow as. fast as the oats. Select a kind of oats that will stand up well. Plow in the seed four inches deep. Begin to cut when the crop is a foot high. Manure the ground so as to get a rank growth and be sure you will have the cheapest green feed possible. If you have not time to haul it grow it near the pasture and cut and pitch it over the fence when the pasture is scant. Try it once. We advise farmers to grow each a few acres of sugar beets. They will gradually learn the most economic methods. There is no danger of a loss, as the roots are worth the cost of growing (or stock. To use a slang phrase, fifty million dollars are hung up as a premium as an incentive. The farmer will sometime in the future earn the money now paid to the farmers of Europe and Cuba for sugar. Our soil and our climate are suitable. Skill only is lacking and that will come. We have capital enough in Iowa 4ying idle to buy plants to work up the beets, if skill were common. If the farmers set about growing the beets for feed, the capital will command th skill. The beef situation must be solved by each farmer for himself. Poor cattle do not certainly pay those who sell them to the feeders, and unless feeders can buy them at prices that do not pay the breeders of them, they do not pay the feeders. The packers control the lower grades completely and rob both producers and consumers. There is no money then in either breeding or feeding poor cattle. Why continue handling them? The speculative feeder's business is gone unless somebody will grow feeders at a decided loss for him. Nothing in the situation justifies any hope of better prices for the common steer, fat or lean. He must go as far as the Iowa farmer is concerned. What then? Feeding must bo done by the breeder, and the breeder to have the profit must breed the best If this comes about, and circumstances will force it to come about, then tho superior steer can reach more markets and less poor stuff will give more room for the excellent. The farmer who continues to breed 1 low grade cattle need not look for pro-fit How deplorable the situation. A few men in Chicago rob all the cattle growers of tbe land, extort from all the- beef consumers, defy the ederal law against trusts, year after ear, and no remedy. Our people have the reputation of being able to diop one business and take up another with facility.

Wo have- had, this winter, a different egislature from any that Las sat in Des itoines for a long time. It was composed of new men abnost entirely. Its membership was new to legislative ways, unacquainted with the forms of doing business, but a membership that attack* d time aged grievances that could not, during ail the years of Iowa Statehood, get consideration, and what it has left undone it has left because it has not had ime to consider. We would like to have een it sit twice as long and take up taxation, and go to the bottom of all questions relating to it, and brus.h away the outrages that are so entrenched in our system, and inaugurate equal support of public burdens. It had the courage and the honesty, but it lacked the experience and the time. With a few exceptions we would like to see every man returned. The common habit is to speak scornfully of legislatures—and some of them deserve it—but we should recognize faithful public servants when we have them. There were quite a good per cent, of very strong minds in both Houses. True, some awkward things were done, but the greatest deliberative body is but a few steps above a mob. The men who went as far as they did toward removing the fiction of sacredness from fraudulent notes in tbe hands of third parties, who are seldom innocent purchasers, and who voted to put a share of public taxation on tho privileged mortgagee, and hold insurance companies for the amounts they get premiums for, were a rare body of men. THE SIRE. Farmers who are not situated so as to milk cows and make fine butter in Iowa should be certain to arrange to make high selling beef. To this end wise men are very careful to select good sires. It is utterly out of the question to reach the top unless this is done. Luck has nothing to do with the business. The sire that is to leave good feeders must be a good feeder, and must be descended from a long line of good feeders. He must mature early and to this ' end he must have great powers of assimilation. He will extract more weight from his rations than common animals. So when you are hunting a breeding sire, see what he ia descended from. The high selling steer has a good back and you should begin there to look over your sire. Butchers pay most for steers from which they can get steaks from the poll to the hocks—and they do that from the best all along the roof of the animal. The crops must be well filled, as high selling beef steak is cut there. The loin must be wide and level, as there the highest selling cuts are got. Big bone is not valuable, as people do not eat bones. The early maturing steer will sell at the highest prices if he is finished at 1,400 pounds. Tbe quickest feeders are quiet animals. Weight is made when the animal is lying. The restless brute will not fatten. So, get a quiet sire. Hoard has a theory that nervousness la necessary in the milk cow. Be that as it may it is not necessary in the feeder. See to the- touch of the sire, the handling. A soft, mellow skin has marbled beef under it—a hard, sole leather hide has not Avoid a paper skin, as it does not protect against changes of our climate. Get a sire- that is a handsome stepper. It betokens symmetesy of parts. Pay no attention to color if what you see is allowable la the breed you favor, and for beef do not pay so miach attention to breed as to good beasts inside the breed. Then feed. Peed full on pasture—the very best pastures. We can have them in Iowa. Keep growth going OB steadily. Early maturity here treated does not mean grain rations all the time-. We do not believe in the economy of it Bat plenty of grass in summer and plenty of growthy rations for growing steers in winter. When finishing time comes do the job thoroughly. Sell to no man to finish for you. No one will finish for you aa cheap as you can. Beef is made all the way from Iowa' to London on Iowa grains. It can be done cheapest here. If people farther east can make good beef making pay, so can we, and make it pay more, as we are at the fountain head of cheap feed. But begin right and never deceive yourself by thinking that your cows will bring you quite as good feeders from some cheap sire you get for a low price. They wont. Get the best and pay for it, and feed for the best and you will do well by it •SpcHmen CIIHRN. S. H.
