Dealers in The First National Bank • The quarterly report of the hospital for the insane at Independence was received by the auditor of state yesterday. There were 800 inmates up to January 1, 1891. i _ M _ M __ j- Iowa in 1890 had 1,085,080 acres of wheat, ranking 8th; the product was 10,041,000 bushels, ranking 9th, value $16,223,123, ranking 10th. The state had in that year 8,770,299 acres of corn ranking 1st; the product was 8,771,299 bushels, ranking 1st; value $95,300,164. ranking 1st. In oats there were 2,707,330 acres, ranking 2nd; product 71,397,000 bushels ranking 1st; value $27,130,903, ranking 1st. In the value of these three crops Iowa is $13,000,000 ahead of Illinois, which ranks 2nd. A certain justice of Polk county married a couple on tho 1st of January, when ho did not become a legal justice until tho 6th. There was consternation among tho parties when tho fact was discovered and tho justice came up and asked one of tho judges what to do about it. The judge advised a remarriage and it was done all over again. The marriage may have been sufficient to hold, but it was thought best to make sure. A company has been organized to put an electric railway from Ames to the agricultural college grounds. The state swine breeders' association met at Cedar Rapids yesterday. Winter dairying in Webster county has proved a very satisfactory success. Three of tho large creameries are being operated at their full capacity and good prices are paid tho farmers for their milk. The number of creameries in the county will bo doubled this year. A new creamery is now being organized at Mooreland, and the farmers all over tho county are becoming interested in the matter. The fact that more money can be made out of milk sold to the creamery than by homo dairying has been proved to the satisfaction of the farmers of this county. tor of binding twine. Tho Walter A. Wood company have adopted the grass twine and already have machines running in their shops at Hoosick Falls, New York. They have adapted their machines to the use of the Lowry twine, which will be much cheaper than twine manufactured from manilla or sisal. The Alliance Twine company of Dos Moines has purchased all of Mr. Lowry's patents and will establish in Dos Moines within a few months a factory for the manufacture of wrapping twine, rope, bagging and matting.

From the Iowa Baptist Annual of 1890 the following statistics have been gathered for this state: Fifty-six missionaries have been employed during the year. Appropriations for mission work, $9,357.42, for church edifice work, $3,800, making a total of $13,147.42. Members added to the Baptist churches of Iowa during the year, 3,957; the loss (by letter, death, etc.)2,445; gain, 1,512; moneys raised by tho Baptist churches of Iowa during the year for all purposes, $304,879. Tlya Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul road have an industrial commissioner, named Louis Jackson. He has lately been on this branch of tho road in connection with the new department established by the above company in Chicago for the purpose of collecting data and disseminating it among the manufacturers of the east. This is done with a view to develop the interests of their line and get the resources known so as to induce manufacturers to settle at western points. The purpose of the company is also to gather information as to the manufacturers desiring to move west and to furnish them to the western cities on their line and allow the eities independently to make an effort to secure them. In this way they will aid the cities along their lines as well as the company itself. J. Rundalo Brown, tho Iowa mind reader, who has performed such astonishing feats on both sides of tho Atlantic, at royal audiences in England and elsewhere in all tho cities in this country, was exposed at Davenport last week. He undertook to road tho • mind of Mayor Flcke while separated from him the length of tho opera house. Tho means of communication was a wire which each of them was to hold to his head. The first test was to bo tho number of the mayor's watch. After arranging preliminaries, including tho labeling of the number by the subject that he might have a memorandum of it, another watch was substituted without Brown's knowledge. The mayor held tho watch and Brown pressed his end of tho wire to his head a moment, then slowly pronounced tho number of the original watch. This was greeted with laughter, and then it developed that Brown had secured an impression of the number written and of course the changing of the watches showed up the fraud. The performance closed abruptly amid scenes little short of riotous. H. I. Wasson was a member of the committee appointed by the supreme court last week to examine candidates for admission to the bar.

Come ftn.a, see us, Tho state horticultural society met at Des Moines last week, Eugene Secor of Forest City and J. M, Elder of Garner represented northern Iowa. Miss Lydia Landt of Davenport has been brought home from Oconomowoc, Wis., a mental wreck. She was driven insane by a practical joke played upon her by several young men. The story is that she loved a young man whom she met at Oconomowoc during the summer and he amused himself by pretending to love her. He failed to keep his promise to write to her when he went away, but a number of his young men friends wrote half a dozen times to the girl, signing the name of her whilom lover and urging her to meet him at different times in Oconomowoc. She did as directed, but her lover, of course, did not come. She brooded over her trouble until Saturday, when she became a raving maniac. Des Moines has a lady dentist, Miss Jessie Mi Richtie, The profession, perhaps, has no more competent representative, as the splendid patronage she is receiving would denote. The News says Mr. George A. Lowry of Des Moines has invented and patented machinery by which excellent rope, binding twine, bagging and- matting can be cheaply and practically manufactured from ordinary slough grass. The invention is regarded as of great impottance in connection with the mat* Tho Farmers' Institute.

LOTTS CREEK, Jan. 26.~To the Editor: As your Harrison correspondent s us to give our failures as well as successes, I will draw from my largest pi.'o and give you iny failure with potatoes. Last season ray land was fall plowed. I plowed again in the spring and harrowed well, planted well, cov- crcd well with a hoe, and then my ambition failed and I did but little moro to the potatoes until I began digging thorn. Well, I got enough for out- own use and a very few to spare from half an acre. I have a neighbor who planted about the same amount of ground. He prepared and planted it us well, and being near by the soil and climate must have been about the same. But he took care of his field through the season. Perhaps it cost him $5 in labor I saved, but the outcome of it was that ho had potatoes for his own use arid $60 worth to sell. SALT FOR HOQS. Now, Mr. Editor, I have clipped a a little item from the Farm, Field and Stockman 1 about salt for hogs, which says: "Nine-tenths of the hogs bred and fattened for market by the average farmer do not have as much salt as they should. Only the hog starved for it will take an overdose when it is tjirown to him. Away with the idea that it is dangerous to salt the hogs! Give it fa them daily either in the slops or where they can have access to it. Wood ashes mixed with it will not hurt any." Never in my life before: have I heard of the danger of salting hogs. I have always been in the habit of giving hogs free access to salt, always supposed it was as necessary for their health as for horses, cattle, or sheep, in fact I have used salt to keep a hog after it was dead. s* Now, as there is considerable interds't at this time in co-operative creameries, I clip from the same paper an article which may be read by some with interest, and perhaps with profit. UNCLE STEVE. MILK TESTS DEMANDED. After stating the damage done by taking milk in bulk without butter test — a" state of things destined, if it continues, to work incalculable injury to the diary industry of the country; for it is a constant inducement for patrons 1 of creameries to breed and feed cows so as to produce the largest possible quantity of milk, regardless of quality"— the writer says: "That it does have this effect is, already apparent in many places. I know of a number of instances where creameries were started a few years ago in districts where men had been breeding butter breeds of cows, and the first, year the per cent, of butter ( to the 100 pounds of milk was very high, but the per cent, has each year fallen until now it is very low. The strife of the patrons by each one trying to sund the thinnest milk is resulting in loss to the district, taken as a whole, and if continued will result ruinously to our herds of dairy cows, to the dairyman, and, lastly, to the creamery man." He then suggests the remedy: It seems to me that the remedy is very simple. It lies entirely with the patrons. Let any considerable number of them combine and firmly demand the testing, and I believe it will be done. If it is not "done, then let them withhold their milk and make it into good butter—such as the market demands— and they will be the gainers by it. Now I do not believe that I am advising anything that will injure the creameryman. I do not wish to. On the other hand, I believe it will be for his benefit, for it will greatly increase his patronage, I know of a great many private dairymen who had herds of butter cows and who are good feeders, who would gladly patronize the creamery if they could be sure of getting credit for the full amount of butter their milk contains. "But," says the creamery- man, " those who get smaller dividends will do some terrible kicking." Let them kick. Let them withhold their milk if they choose. They will soon find that they cannot get anything --oulv of their milk beyond what it contains, and will soon return and bring better milk from better fed cows, Now, as to whether the patron or the creameryman shall be to the expense of the testing, that is just as the partie.s can agree on that matter. I believe it will pay either party to pay the expense. I remember many years ago, when I used to sell beef cattle at Fort Atkinson, I had to pay for the weighing or let them go for what the buyer guessed they would weigh, I chose to v pay for weighing. Now-a-days the buyer chooses to weigh, It gives better satisfaction. So it will be some day with the oreamerymen testing ' milk. Llglit Comes at J^ast. Gov. Boies and Senator Chubb have both failed to solve tho question of how to make corn growing profitable, fa Iowa.
