LOUIS LESSINC, Hauufacturc; and Uraler In (ill kind* ot of $19,000,000 of corn sold abroad last year England took $13,000,000. The proportion will hold nearly good in other food products. How"does it bone- It Iowa to have Sheffield rand, to havo England straining every nerve to cut off our trado, to have our agricultural products gradually prohibited? What compensation arc we getting for this sacrifice? Tho answer to this last question would be specially pertinent In connection with this cutlery tariff. For yoars it has been claimed that we ex- coll tho world in cutlery and fino edged tools. It has been tho boast of all high tariff writers that our goods uro sold on the shelves of Shertiold shops. And yet during all thin time tho tariff on pocket cutlery has boon 50 percent, and on other steel goods In proportion, What compensation Is Iowa to got for consenting to an increase of u 50 per cent, tariff on goods which pretend to compete In the markets of tho world, —an Increase that establishes an enormous monopoly at homo at tho timo it shuts tho market abroad to what wo have to soil? Blaino opposes McKln- loyism so far as it affects tho South American market. But Elaine's plan only indirectly benefits tho west, for reciprocity with South America means largely froe hides, free wool, and other farm products in return for eastern shop made goods. Still it opaiis a market for flour and corn, and Iowa should favor it. But why should Iowa stop at South America? Why should she not endorse Buttorworth's plan for reciprocity with Canada? Why moro than all should she not demand reciprocity with England, and Franco, and Gorr many, tho great food-consuming countries of tho world? It is nothing' but eastern selfishness that rejoices to seo English workmen mad at our tariff, and the western man who is caught in so gauzy a not can not seo far enough beyond bis noso to ever help build up a prosperous state. It is a groat deal more important to Iowa that English gold comes over for our beef and pork, and butter, than it is that South Amor- lean bides (ijid wool como for tho products of New England factories. It is all right to giyp tho faiitorjes their markets, but i{ favming ovor (jots above a mental position In the estimation of tho world it will bo because farmers rub their eyes uud plan, a llttlu on >ybor« thoir returns arc going- to como typm, ut tho same timo that thoy uro planning u groat deul to holp a fow cutlery >ntl- McKlnloy bill that will open tho markets Tor another bushel of wheat or another barrel of pork." Continuing in his powerful statement of tho need of foreign commerce he said: "Our foreign markets for breadstuffs grow narrower and Groat Britian is exerting ovory norvo to secure her broad supplies for India, and tho rapid expansion of wheat area In Russia gives us a powerful competitor In tbo marketsof Europe. It bo- comes u?\thorGfore, to use every opportunity fo,'" Te extension of our markets on both the American continents. With nearly 3100,000,000 worth of sugar seeking our markets ovory year wo shall prove ourselves lost by unskilled legislation if wo do not secure largo aid for tho sale and consumption ; of our breadstuffs and provisions.' Tho late conference of American republics proved tho existence of a common desire for closer relations. Our congress should take up the work whoro tho international conference left it. Our aid of commercial development and progros lies south of us." BY its announcement in this paper it will be seen that tho State University of Iowa resumes its work on the 10th day of September.

"What a nauffhty careless little boy!" I began, and without trusting myself to say another word I returned to the dining-room. A few moments lator my husband, all unconscious of tho tragedy, entered, made much of Bortle, asked him if he had been lonely, and if ho was glad wo, were again at homo. I saw tho little chin quiver under his papa's caresses, and I began to appreciate something, of how tho little heart must bo aching at the prospects of disclosure which he supposed would follow. Waiting until ho had finished his supper and gone into the sitting-room, I related the catastrophe. Without n word, my husband, in tho brightest and cheeriest of voices, called Bertie to him, and taking him on his knee, praised him for having at onco and unasked told the truth about the accident, and in his gentle way drew from the broken-hearted child tho story of "bow he wanted to help Bridget" by beating tho dust out of the parlor furniture, and of how he had "axidentiy" hit the shade with tho broom handle; nor did his father let him relinquish his seat until smiles had chased away tho grief from his poor littlo fneo. Had I lost my little boy that night, before I had Had tlmo to assure him of my full forgiveness, and to make him fool in some way that it was tho headache and not mamma tbat had spoken, I should never havo forgiven myself. Bridget toldmo tho next day, that- after tho accident he sat with folded hands, unablo to play, or followed her from room to room to ask her if she was quite sure tbat the four dollars from his bank would be enough to pay for it. "I was that sorry for him, mom,"said the kind-hearted girl "that I could have cried," I TO DRAW ON GLASa A Manufacturer EzpUlns an Ea.y Proo.M for Amateur*. To write or draw on glass it is necessary to impart to the surface a certain degree of roughness. This may be done by grinding or etching, but much moro easily by applying some appropriate varnish. A- good matt varnish is made by dissolving in 2 ounces of ether, 90 grins, of sandaroc and 20grms. mastic, and odd- ing benzol, J OZ . to ;IJ oz., according to the fineness of the matt required. Ihe glass may bo heated after it is wet, to insure a firm and even groin. To render tho glass again transparent, after writing upon it. apply with a brush a solution of sugar or gum aco- sia. Still better as a surface for wrlt- r>K or drawing is a varnish of sugar, Jissolvo equal parts of white and brown sugar in water to a thin sirup, add alcohol, and apply to hot glass plates. Tho film dries very rapidly, and furnishes a surface on which it is erfectly easy to write with pen or encil. The best ink to use is India nlc, with a little sugar added.
