We JONES & SMITH. inuch More stuff and nonsense of like Import to help 1 afoiiBO tho wildest enthusiasm over opening alt over foreign trade to eastern cutlery, and yankee notions. Just why our own exports are trifling matters, while exports of eastern goods are so important that we should subsidize steamships to carry them, the Bepublican does not point out. That able paper falls even to suggest why, if our pork and butter and beef exports amount to only four pef cent., that is not good as far as it goes, and Why we should not be alert to ex tend them. It does not oven stop to suggest why it will bo a good thing to smother agriculture until we raise only what wo con oat ourselves. The fact Is all such papers as the Republican make themselves ridiculous by not consulting a few facts. The .agricultural exports of the United States are an enormous 'actor in her growth, and being all the balance of trade that they so much brag of. Last year England alone paid us in money over and above what wo got in goods, $204,712,007. What was that for but the produce of Iowa farms? Since 1^75 her average money payment to us has been from $161,000,000 to $306,641,840 per year, 4 besides what she has supplied Us from her factories. This enormous balance of trade In our favor, when wo export our farm produce, is lost in our trade with South America and tho islands, so that our total balance each year Is but $70,000,000. It Is our agricultural exports which today mark us as a commercial nation. They bring us our money, they aro making our profit for us, they aro maintaining high priced labor, they are maintaining the moral and patriotic population of our country, they are Iowa's resource nnd her pride. Why should we nil fall down to tho cutlery calf or tho tin monopoly calf and say cut off our trade ly ejfenteg- to isuf BWn&wISg' les and &«6W6§&*lfoftaWfc6t. IN his grett Waterville Speech* Blalne said: "In field agriculture, with the Immense propulsion given it by agricultural Implements, we can do far more than produce breadstuff and provisions for our own people; ndr Would It be ambitious destiny for so great a country as ours to manufacture only what w& want to cbnsufne or produce on)y t what we can eat."

The Republican does its own intelligence little credit by such stuff. And as to politics, if there is any class of men today digging republican graves in Iowa, it is the traitors to Iowa interests who are ridiculing the commercial importance of Iowa's chief industries. Before tho Republican essays again to criticize the defenders of the west, let it'jiut in u column the manufactured products it knows of which can bo moro cheaply produced, moro" extensively produced, more profitably produced, or that are more important at homo or more desired abroad than butter, lard, pork, beef, flour, and eggs, and point out wherein their superior merit consists. If it will try this little puzzle it will shortly discover that Iowa Is tho biggest manufacturing state in tho union, that its labor is bettor paid, that is products are more profitable, that its commerce is more valuable, and its industries more worthy of encouragement than of any eastern state. THE Kansas republicans endorsed Blalne by name in the long series of resolutions. "THE fact is," enys Sam Clark, "this country has got so big that James O. Blalno is the only man in it.

The wealth of the ngos has not been accumulated where tho climate was good for crops, but' where it has stimulated brains. Down in the tropics, where food grows on the trees, they tu-o still barbarians. On a little island smaller than Iowa, hung- with fogs, without remarkable natural resources, and shut out from the rest of mankind, aro the commercial rulers of the world. People who couldn't see the point all took to the high ground and wondered what the low lands woro made for, But ingenuity put in drain tile, and the swump owners are getting rich, and the high and dry men all want to get oft their perch. A few years ago our farmers cut their little jag of hay and sot a prairie fire to clear the ground for tho next season, hay press, and But ingenuity got a today every aero of ground is shaved us carefully as a grain Held, and $200,000 is a small estimate of tho ready money Kossuth county will get this year In place of her old prairie fires, What any country needs Is not moro opportunities, but brains enough to use what it has. It is brains, education, invention, application that makes one country bettor than another. Poverty exists next door to gold mines, and wealth is today taken out of those things which yesterday were declared useless. Brain power moves the world. O. W. WHAIAMS has given Independence a national reputation. He raised there the fastest stallion on record, Axtell. Ho has made there a balloon shaped race track that is claimed to be two seconds faster than any in the world. Ho has mode a success of the biggest races over held in tho west. A town no larger than Algonn. paid $38,600 in purses, and next year will offer $75,000. At tho raceswn Iow» two-year- old, Manager, reduced the record for its class to 2:iOj, the second fastest pacing record wus mado by Roy Wilkes, and the fastest throe heats ever made woro by Cricket, In summing up the results of the cordcr says: rucoB tho Hampton Re- meeting has fully demonstrated ilmttUo following statements aro fticts: First, Independence is the Lexington of the northwest; second, Williams' balloon shaped brack is tho fastest mile course on earth; third, Iowa is rapidly coming to tUo front and will sooa become noted as the homo pi trotters; fourth, 0.

SENATORS AWSON and Wilson both voted with the democrats and western republicans to put binding twine on the free lint, and . tlm amendment was adopted. If. tUo house is equally as {air, a very i|mrar.|j}nt change will have been In w> interests of the farmers.

Tho other two were talcon out without breaking up the bones, but were so nearly decayed as to make it almost impossible to handle them. Tho location of the ground is a mound in the timber on tho brow of tho hill. It Is supposed to bo an old Indian burrying place and further search will undoubtedly devolope moro of the skeletons. Mr. Wm. Shea of Nevada township, in Palo Alto county, had his right arm broken at the elbow joint on Sunday last. Two young men from town, pretty well filled up with liquor, were attempting to drive across Mr. Shea's premises when a largo dog interfered, and tho young men requested Mr. Shea to call oil the dog. This Mr. Shea refused to do, telling them they had no right to drive across his premises. ' They then commenced to abuse Mr. Shea, and he ordered them off and started to put them off. In the souffle Mr. Shea fell and broke his arm. Tho young men have left Emmotsburg, and if tho facts as related are true, It is probably lucky for them that that they have. Says the Emmotsburg Democrat: " H. J. Wilson's daughter is receiving as much press notice in this congressional district as Baby MoKeo, The editors all know Harry." To w.hlch tho Humboldt Independent adds: " And they all know that Baby MoKeo Is no circumstance to Harry's baby. Harry and his wife aro both well known and their baby must be a good one." Estherville Republican: It will be with feelings of regret that the many admirers of Ed. Andrews, tho popular manager and star of the Andrews Opora company, will learn that he has become insane because of over work or too hard study. The Carroll Sentinel remarks: A woman up at Algona was struck by lightning the other day and part of her clothes torn off, yet she was not injured. She attributes her safety to the protective tariff.

Mr. Jesse never thought of applying animal magnetism to sporting dogs. Bat this is part of "The Scientific Education of Dogs" oa practiced and taught by "H. H." "I have held a lot of dogs by tho magnetic power of will from doing wrong hundreds of yards away from me," says "H. H.," and he adds that if he unbent his mind by making a remark to a friend the spell wasi>rokon. It cannot be the power of the human eye, he thinks, that acts thus, for how can the eye act at a quarter of a mile's distance? He might shut his eyes and try if the magnetic power still lasts. "To be a first rate dog breaker a man must have lots of animal magnetism," which, according to this philosopher, is developed by force of will. But what is will, or is it a form of "magnetism?" Even in dog breaking we reach at once the debatable land' of metaphysics, and are embarked on Schopenhauer's speculations before we know it. Of animal magnetism exercised by the rider on the horse little need be said. The man may influence -the boost by contact unconsciously, not by "will force." It is different when "H. H," turns a distant dog from a particular corner of a field by simply "wishing" with all his force. The whip and the •will hod better be kept separate as much as may be, and some dogs answer to the will which merely sulk under the whip. The cleverest of "H. H.'s" dogs was a retriever. He was fishing in her company, caught his fly on a stump of the opposite bank, sent the retriever across the water for it, and she brought it safely. When a friend's fly caught in a bough of a willow some feet above the water, the dog swam across, climbed into the top of the bush, jumped, fastened on the bough as she fell, bit it through, and restored the tackle. The dog was sent for a wounded mallard which was swimming below the ice. She ran eighty yards down stream, broke a hole in the thin ice, and waited like a cat at a mouse hole. There she caught the mallard as he came up to breathe. If this was not reasoning what is reason? But some other power must have been exorcised in tho following case: "H. H." left his dog at the front door of a house, with a friend to watch its proceedings. Ho himself left the house by the aid of a ladder set against a high window in the bock and walked away. Tho dog began to be uneasy as soon as the master hod thus escaped, and was with him in five minutes. Could he have been guided by smell or was he attracted by animal magnetism? If the human mind can really influence that of a dog from a distance, the force which we coll mind must be common to man and beast, and "in that equal sky" retrievers may keep "H. H.'s" company. The attention of Mr. Bomaines and of the Psychical Society, as well. as the study of sportsmen, should be given to the subject. We are only beginning to Study the psychology of animals, and yet it may be the proper starting point of those investigations.— London News, A Troubloouio Worm. It was funny to start with, but twice as funny when the great mystery was unraveled. At one of the Lewiston school buildings the janitor, who is painstaking and careful, had been accused of negligence in sweeping the floor, He denied the charge, and said he swept the floors regularly and carefully, but that no matter how well he did it, the next morning the floor was covered with dirt and the result of his sweeping went for nothing. He couldn't understand it, Only one solution, ghosts— and he didn't believe in ghosts.

Jfig* Cooper, a daughter of the novel* 1st, James Fentoore Cooper, states that when in Paris she saw a French translation of her father's tale, "The Spy," In which there were several mistakes, but one of them was such that it was almost Incredible that any one could possibly have been guilty of it. The residence of Mr. What ton, one of the characters who figure In the story, Is spoken of by the attthof as "The Locusts." Kow f the translator had evidently been ignorant of the circumstance of there being any species of trees bearing this name. Ifaving; therefore, looked up the word in his dictionary, and finding the definition to bo given as '-Les Santerelles"-— grasshoppers—thus he rendered it in the test. Presently, however, he came across a paragraph in the novel In which it was stated that a visitor to the house of Mr. Wharton had tied his horse to a locust. Then it might bo naturally supposed that the translator would at once have discovered his error, Not a bit of it! His reasoning would appear to have been somewhat on a parity with that of a celebrated countryman of his, when he declared that "if the facts do not agree with the theory, so much the worse for the facts." Nevertheless, the writer seems to have been conscious that some explanation was due of so extraordinary a statement as that a horseman had secured his steed to a grasshopper. So he wenton gravely to inform his readers that in America these insects grow to aa enormous size, and that in this case one of these, dead and stuffed, had been stationed at the door of the mansion for the convenience of the visitors on horseback!—Bookmark.

Nothing worried Stanley more than a tap at the door while he was writing. He sometimes glared like a tiger ready to spring. When his courier knocked tremblingly at his door v ho would cry out,"Am I a prisoner in my own house?" "I've brought you this telegram, sir." "Well, I detest telegrams. Why do you persist in bringing them?" Every time Sail, his African servant, approached the den the least 'thing he expected was that the inkstand would be thrown at his head. One day he originated a new way of saving his head. Ho had a telegram to deliver *so he ingeniously fixed it on the end of a long bamboo, and getting tho door just ajar he poked it into the room and bolted. Although averse to reading correspondence, Stanley read somo letters with keen delight, and one in particular from a little girl. It contained the following characteristic lines: "It was very kind of you to go through such perils to rescue Emin Pasha. I liked so much to hear of your fighting against the dwarfs, and should like to see one very much. They must look so funny, being so small. I am a little school girl at school, and I am 11 years old. I am very fond of geography, and am always longing to go round the world."—Scribner's. ORIGINAL NOTICE.

Tho father, not wishing him to go altogether without food, said: "You might be situated so you would be glad to havo bread and water.
