THK RKl'UBLtCAN, WEDNESDAY, A L< JON A, iOWA, APRIL ao, Mrs. W. n. Francta 19 the -wife ol one of the best known pharmacists In New Haven, doing business at 141 Dixwell Ave., and ex-president of the Connecticut Pharmaceutical Association. He says : "My wife was for several years In bad health, doe to a complication of disorders. Friends persuaded her to take Hood's Sarsa- parllla; she took 0 or 8 bottles and is certainly a great deal better since, In every way." Mrs. Martha Reed of 183B Ramsey street, Baltimore, Md., voluntarily says: " For over 2 years I suffered with a Complication of Diseases till the summer found me a confirmed invalid, blood poor, appetite gone, bowels out of order, and I was miserable in mind and body. I read of such wonderful cures performed by Hood's Sarsaparllla that, alj last, I thought I would try a bottle, as, if it didn't make me better, it could not make me worse. It did make mo better, and on my third bottle I found myself almost A New Woman I will gladly convince any lady, as I have proved to myself, that purifying and enriching the blood, which Hood's Sarsaparilla does to perfection, is the best Constitutional Treatment, and in many cases, docs away with all Local Treatment in the many diseases with which women are afflicted."

KNOXVILLB, Tenn., April 16. —The trouble at Coal Creek continues. The firing on the troops by the miners has probably brought the long impending crisis. Camp Anderson's telegraph operator, Maddo, is missing. A hint was dropped by the miners some days ago that the troops and convicts would have to go when the leaves came out. All the miners have quit work, and Friday were seen conversing excitedly in groups. This is pay day for the miners and the troops will also get their monthly allowance. This means a lively time for the miners, and the troops fear another conflict. A SUSPICION OF SUICIDE. Monoy Supposed to Hava Been Stolen Found Partially Burned. ISHPEMINO, Mich., April 15.—The charred remnants of several hundred dollars in paper money was found at noon in the rock dump near the Cleveland mine office, supposed to be money taken from the vault the night of Cashier Gleason's death. There is strong presumption of suicide and that Gleason destroyed money to avert suspicion. Ask Brngglat for fr«e bottle Dr. Miles 1 Nervine. BLUE LAWS ENFORCED. Farm and Stock Yard.

Sioux CITY, la., April 17.—For the first time in the history of Sioux City business was suspended Sunday. The Sunday Enforcement league closed places of business, forced most of the transit lines to suspend operations, and even closed some of the restaurants. All stores, billiard rooms, etc., were closed and it was almost impossible to buy a cigar. The Enforcement league is composed of saloon men and associated classes who have been driven out of business by the enforcement of prohibitory laws. They say they will enforce all laws for state alike and give the people a taste of real enforcement. Iowa has some blue laws that have been long forgotten, but they are being resusitated. All labor on Sunday is a misdemeanor, the limit of punishment being a $5 fine and imprisonment until paid. Information for employes and officers of all street cars were sworn out in the morning. The men were arrested and the officers gave bonds and sent them back to work, when they would be rearrested. Some oE the lines by this means were kept in operation most of the day. The Sioux City Street Bail- way company, with twenty-five miles of line and the most important, did not turn a wheel in the afternoon. The cable line men were arrested several times, but the justices did not dare jail them for fear of public sentiment. The suburban train of the Sioux City and N orthern running to Leeds was stopped for a time, but the railroad had plenty of men at hand and the effort was discontinued. The streets were crowded all day with people anxious to watch the proceedings. The league is said to have the sympathy and support of many leading people and announces that it will follow up the work vigorously and compel the closing of all business on Sunday and make it permanent. Serious trouble is feared before it ends. RAIDED A DOG FIGHT. Snow storm on the 18th. This is unusual tot Iowa, but it la likely to do more good than Injury to our crops. The opinion is general that young pigs should not have sour feed. We think feed should not be very much soured for any animal. The coming farmer will not keep dogs. He will prefer some orphan child, and keep the one as cheaply as the other, and more satisfactorily. A writer in the Sheep Breeder scouts the idea that full feeding of corn is not good for sheep. Well, try one lot on corn and other on oats, and see. If you are interested in this department tell the publisher so when you go to town. We all express our dislikes freely but are often slow in expressing appreciation. The Iowa State creamery at Ames pays for the fat delivered, and not for the milk by the pound. Fat varies from 3 to 0 per cent, at present, in each nun dred pounds of milk. The farmer is being compelled to go to the factory. One county in Iowa, through the farmers' alliance, bought 125 reapers for $05 each. We have the facts from the agent. This is startling to us. _ Ohio legislators propose to enact how much fat may be stolen from a cheese, as some other States have done. Thi first State that takes a stand for ful cheese and against skims will make reputation worth having. Do not get the impression that peas will not grow well here. Suitable kinds do. We have not grown them because corn was grown with much less labor. The necessity for peas will bring about economic methods of handling them. On most Iowa lands good farmers who rotate crops and grow grass do not need to bother their heads over fertilizers. Good farming is the more profitable— good cultivation. Most Iowa soils have all the nitrogen, phosphorous and potash they require. There will be a sheep shearing festival at Ames about the ISth'of April. The college has seven breeds, besides a lot of high grades. Prizes will be given by different parties. Sheep will be brought in by breeders and the students will get lessons—the main object. The easiest way to bring back a field to good behavior that is not responding is to seed it down to clover and pasture it for a year or two or more. If the clover is eaten so close that it dies out before you want to plow it up again, re-seed it. Clover is dear, this spring, which is a hint to us to save seed, something we can easily do. toward hoiwity la thi* Mfwd.

Sow on bare ipota la tta pastured early, sow elover where none U" seen in the pastures. Closely eaten pastures have weak grass roota and fresh seed is required. There is a prejudice In the minds of many people against clover hay and a preference for timothy, There ia great difference in value. Timothy is tabulated about the same as good corn fodder, while good clover bay is tabulated higher than oats. But timothy should not bo depended on to give a paying crop on high prairie land, and where the clover has died out or has been eaten out it should be sown again. A writer in the Breeders' Gazette reasons that the Americans can not breed as good animals as foreign breeders, because the latter inherit mental qualities bearing upon breeding, and other like cogent reasons. This question is being discussed and before settling upon an opinion we have been looking over different reasons that are urged why Americans can not breed as good animals as the people in foreign lands. The Gazette writer goes too far. We believe in the power of heredity, but that our Britsh cousins are born to breed better beasts than we are is going too far. Climate and root feeding and the like may make a difference, but we think the American farmer is born all right Political parties are planning the cam paigns for the coming fall. The time was when the farmer was more exercised about who would hold office than about his farm. We suggest a farming campaign so as to make the election of good crops sure. Let farmer talk to farmer when convenient Let them study seed beds, soil conditions, pastures, improving stock, and economy in labor. When the returns come in every farmer can rejoice over the results of a successful campaign. Office holding is necessary to government, but incidental to life's great work of properly acquitting ourselves in our chosen vocations. We can afford to consider what concerns us and that is what other classes do. Th« effort to Intfodads out corn into tttfop* M » food Will not ttttt With unit eraal lue&sM. Th« working p*opl« rer thew—many of them—can not af- ord to eat meat. Corn bread Is no rnora complete food for matt than it la. for nlmaU.

A study of the diet of he poorer people fs interesting in this day of balancing rations. Potatoes and buttermilk make some of the finest men n Europe. Oat meal and milk make others. Fish eaten with the different meals, such as. oat and barley, makes strong food. Pork and beans are well mlanced. So our mothers knew how to feed a boy and never inquired into the chemical nomenclature. Nature arranges nicely with milk for young things and grass for all properly balanced that ive on it The wild deer in early days n lowa^ sought the groves in the winter and ate pea vine, which is a Very strong 'odder, the tops of hazel brush, and the young trees suit them when the grass Is dead. The winter keeping Is what requires balancing. Iowa soil will grow all we want for this purpose. Let us keep our oil meal at home instead of exporting it to tone up the rations of other lands. We can better spare corn than any other grain, but that is not what the masses abroad want, nor is it what the farmers abroad want The European farmer la willing to feed our oil meal to a bunch of cattle so as to get a rich manure heap. He will never import our corn for that purpose.

(Shop next to Reading Room) The embargo placed on live stock shipping to London by reason of the foo and mouth disease suggests that the marketing of cattle dead is increasing, and comment by foreign writers is to the effect that the dead meat trade will increase. There is no reason why the Iowa farmer should not send a dressed carcass to market, but the fact is he can not at the same rates the Chicago packers do, while the further fact exists that freight is moved by the unit of 100 pounds, and neither by car load nor train load.

MINNEAPOLIS, April 17.—It has been the honored custom of Twin City sports or years to take occasional drives across the county line and spend an afternoon at a certain resort near Anoka where a pair of bruisers, a couple of dogs or some game fowls furnished the entertainment. The Anoka people have looked with disfavor on ;hese unholy proceedings but not until Sunday did the officers pay any attention to the matter. All day armed deputy sheriffs lurked in the brush and ;imber and at 4 p. m. swooped down on the building in which were gathered some 150 St. Paul and Minneapolis sports watching the progress of a battle between a couple of blooded pups. The officers, fifteen or twenty in number and armed with shotguns, revolvers, etc., made a rush and attempted to guard the exits but all but about forty managed to escape. Pat Shanley, a St. Paul saloon keeper, started to run with the rest, but one of the deputies deliberately raised hia gun and fired and Shanley dropped, the whole charge having taken effect in the calf of his leg. The injury is considered a serious one as it is likely that he will lose his leg. Of the forty prisoners taken all but thirteen were paroled by the sheriff on the payment of $10, and the others were taken to Anoka and lodged in jail. The affair caused quite a stir in sporting circles in this city and the shooting of Bbanley was strongly denounced. Deeming IB Sane. MELBOURNE, April 19.—The medical board who have examined the murderer Deeming as to sanity pronounce him to be mentally sound and perfectly responsible for all his actions. Farm methods in some counties in lo- wa make the land richer. The most striking illustration of this ie seen in the dairy disticts of the State where the cow is the center of the system, and in the grain selling districts where'the reaper is the center. Prices of lowa^arms will depend on their condition in this regard very soon. The ability of different farms to respond is growing less. We suggest to those who design fattening steers on grass that they give corn meal to begin with on the young grass. As the season advances and the grass becomes harder and drier feed some oil meal with the corn. During the last month feed more oil meal than at any other period of feeding. The young grass is a narrow, albuminous ration, older grass is less so. Oil meal is expensive, but it puts on the best finish. If it is not convenient to grind the corn the waste will be great, if hogs do not follow. The farmer now-a-days wants weight in collar, and to get it he must breed for it. The theory that the farmer must have speed iu his farm team so that he can trot to church and back from town is a pernicious one. Let him keep a pony for trotting or a trotting horse if he must trot, but so surely as he sets out to breed trotting into his farm working team he breeds out the weight that ia now-a-days imperative. We know well enough what the 1,200 pound horse can do. He is often a gallant animal, but when it is 90 degrees in the shade and a stiff dry sod must be plowed, the 1,200 pound horse can not do it. It requires three horses of 1,400 pounds and over to do it, and this kind of work should be done on every weir managed Iowa farm. The land must rest and be plowed again. OPTION DEALING. The Louisiana lottery will dissolve, owing to the decision of the U. S. supreme court Option dealing is almost as universal and is practiced by a different class of society. The lottery people kept agents lying in wait for wage-earners wherever they could find them. Option dealing is practiced by our well-to-do people all over the country, and the millionaires of trade centers are made by It. The lottery, it is said, does now and then permit a prize to go out, but the option steerer only , encourages his victim to ruin him if he sticks to the deal. Chicago deals with the whole Northwest. When the deals go heavily enough one way it Is very easy for those who manipulate options to sag or lift so as to make all the money in sight—and they do. The lottery business has been exposed. The option business is juet getting its airing. As the masses become more intelligent the ways by which one man steals from another are exposed. Noth- ng but an ignoramus will buy a lottery ticket, because it is well settled that the ihances are all in favor of the managers. It is different with option dealing. Quite intelligent people imagine that knowledge of the condition of crops over the world enables a man to buy and sell futures with more than even chances. Such information is valuable to dealers in real products, but the option gamblers .fix things for their profit as certainly as the thimble riggers and wheel- of-fortune men at a horse race. Tnis will soon be well known to everybody and option dealing will be relegated to the domain of blackguards. As long, however, as the desire exists to get something for nothing in the mind of one man another will fix a tempting bait with a concealed hook in it. Intelligence will detect counterfeits, but only the love of God and man will stop gambling or other vices. IOWA CENTRAL R'Y.

Look back over a quarter of a century and see whether the man who set out to earn money by work of some kind, or the ones who set out to make money by their wita, have come out best Look closer and see whether those who thoroughly learned to dojsomething somebody wanted done, or those who depended on their genius, have fared best. See whether those who have brought things to pass, or those who have waited foi something to turn up have thriven. Human nature is a queer element. A majority of the visitors to the experimental grounds and feeding stables and dairy at Ames, do not come to ask questions regarding what is being done in different directions, but are pleased to pay expenses hither and thither to get a hearing as to hew they do at home. Tney gel it Come to think, it is very disgusting to hear a fellow go on talking about himself when one wants to talk about one's self. The sure way to please is to listen. A writer in the Mirror and Farmer, an agricultural paper in New Hampshire, suggests that farmers should be educated as professional men are. This is advanced as a new theory. Still Cougress iu 18G.J gave u.1' the States large grants to do this very thing, •which about all the States promptly applied'to the education of more professional men—stole it in fact from the farmers' boya Iowa's agricultural college hes taken a sharp tur» A feature of ration making impresses itsself upon all of us who must deal with rations. The chemist determines the per cent of digestibility of each feed and from that the nutritive ratio is computed. Tables tell us of the relative value of feeds, but the query comes, la one feed of a given ratio equal to another of the same ratio? Feeders know that this is not the case. Palatability comes in to make one desirable to the animal and the want of it comes In to make feeds undesirable. Different countries grow like plants of different digestibility and entirely different composition. Corn varies greatly with l&titude and soil, and varieties differ from others in the same field. The work before the stations in the several States Is to find out for the farmers the value of each feed that grows. Much is written about rape as a farm crop. The talk we hava has been suggested by experiments by Canadians. Rape should be sown in late June ia rows, cultivated to keep the weeds down and to maintain proper soil conditions. About two pounds will seed an acre, but more should be sown so as to insure plenty. Thinning by hand is necessary to the best crops, but quite a crop can be had without it. It can be used with profit to feed sheep where labor to grow it is not too dear. It is a by crop, an after crop, a crop to clean land, a crop to be fed as at stands. It will not bs a fa - vorite with our farmers soon becausaitis out of the regular line. It can be made useful grown neai 1 the stables, for cutting for animals where the pasture is short. It looks like cabbage gone to leaves. Frost soon kills it It will give colic to sheep if fed heavily. CHANGING CONDITIONS. The industrious Germans, Scandinavians, Bohemians, Dutchmen, Irishman, aud some other nationalities are buying up the farms that native born Americans sell to move into town. It is an interesting movement, and a steady one. The farms are in no danger of suffering. In old times we read how the ownership of soil changed by very different processes. This is a quiet abandonment, and as quiet an occupation. Those who love the farms buy them; those who dislike them sell them. Of course in a generation when those who made Iowa have gone to their reward, nobody outside of antiquarians will ask the farmer where his father was bora Tne first thought is a sad one. These farm homes have been made at the cost of a life-time of effort They are very beautiful A grand lot of men they were who broke the prairie, built and planted. Families of bright girls and boys have grown up around the farm house and the older farm house where the courageous pioneers set their stakes and set about establishing themselves. Iowa farm society has winnowed out all weak, the faint hearted, and weak-armed, long ago. The grey-headed sires and saintly mothers yet with us won all their life's battles. They succeeded. The old homestead, now a fortune, is worth ten, twenty or thirty thousand dollars—more than (he old folks need. It is sold for this or that reason. We have not the heart to chide. Good citizens take the place of the poineers whose heads are whitening for eternity. Iowa villages are filling up with retired farmera The boys do not care to go through what their fathers did. They would not have like necessity. The farm has been a graveyard to the hard-working wife who wanted society; so the daughters, dread farm life. It would be different in the*ext generation.
