Last year ho paid $3.25 n hundred for tho two pound tin cans used in his business. This .year ho bus contracted for them with Norton Uros. of Mnywood, 111., at $1.8" per hundred. On his order of 300,000 cans Mr. Mnynor saves Sl^-lO, nnd tho nrtlclo ho uses will bo made by Amerlcnn workmen. " There nro probably not n score of school houses in Iowa lit for occupation by pupils from n hygienic and sanitary standpoint," writes L. 1<\ Andrews, assistant, socrotnry of tho lowu state board of health, to tho Davenport Democrat. Tho Democrat does not believe that tho statement of Mr. Andrews is in any sense nn exaggerated one. Tho Chronicle says: Congressman Dolll- vor has received from Secretary Husk n nont album of agricultural statistics. Tho album contains plates showing tho yield per acre of onch kind of grain nnd farm products. As nmy bo expected, Iowa is right at tho front with n big average yield. Tho nvorngo for Iowa is ns follows: Corn, 80.0 bushels; wheat,, 10.0 bushels; oats, 83,8 bushels; rye, 83.0 bushels; barley, 31.8 bushels; buckwheat, 10.0 bushels; liny, 1.33 tons per acres. Tho top figures avo in but few cases in excess of. these. Tho statistics arc valuable and the album is u neat compilation.

THEY KICK IK VERSE. Manchester ntid Montlcclto JMs- KiMintled-SvrenHiiK nt thn Court. Tho most amusing and variegated kicking among tho defeated at tho Mon- tlcollo contest would lead tho reader to beliovo that tho participants never saw a contest before. And yet there have 'boon contests nnd contests and after eacli one onch defeated speaker, his or her relatives, and his or her townspeople have gone out behind tho hall to talk over tho Ineompotency, dishonesty, and general cussodiioss of tho judges. But after each contest tho judges have as a rule como out ahead, and oven against tho opinions of tho Montlcollo contestant and her friends, wo are happy to know that tho gold medal i» securely lodged in Algona, und now handsomely engraved in honor of the victory. But there is something amusing in tho story that one judge was a Scotchman and was carried away by tho "Death Bridge of tho Tay." In as- much as ho only helped Miss Wallace six in JtOO points, it don't seem ho watt carried very far, and tho other judges must have had some Scotch blood also, for they too "stood by tho bridge." But its cutonoss excuses tho following poem by a Manchester disappointed one: If you wlwli to ti,;io a medal At soini) far distant tiny, This IH the way to do it- Speak the " Ueath Urldge of the Tay."

A committee has boon appointed to go oast and negotiate with Bluino, Cleveland and Depow for speeches during the session. Thirty counties will be included in the district this year. Fort Dodge reports that tho farmers' alliance movement in this vicinity is booming. Organizers arc at work all over the Tenth congressional district. Over 100 local alliances have been organized since Jan 1. A man in Docorali has invented something that ho calls u speed indicator and that is to bo used by the drivers of trottors, As the machine is arranged it Is fastened to tho driver's wrist in such a way that tho dial is always in sight. A small cord connects tho concern with tho sulky wheel, and according to the man who has invented it, the driver can toll by glancing ut tho machine just how fast ho Is going. It Is also claimed that tho indicator registers tho greatest flight of speed during any part of tho mile. Tho railway commission huvo brought suit to compel tho Milwaukee to put in a depot at Cylinder, just west of Whittemore. Tho Dos Moines Capital claims Iowa has hud quite a record in the circus lino. Orton Bros.' great show for many years made their headquarters at Adel. Miles Orton was one of tho best bare-back riders in America. The brothers mado money and owned considerable land in Dallas county. Goo. P. Cramer, tho Albia landlord, ran u circus for several seasons. W. W. Colo, who became a monarch in the sawdust arena and lost $00,000 when B. P. Allen failed, was un Iowa man, hailing from Chariton. Ex-Mayor J. F. Taylor of Oreston branched out with a circus a few years ago, and is on tho road this season. Dick P. Button, for many years manager of an opera house at Ottumwa, has taken tho road this spring, with a circus, and Jackson Bros, of Fontanelle, hare taken to the road with a mammoth show. These instances are cited to show that Iowa men are not afraid to beard the half-dollar In tho farmer boy's pocket. Good Advice For Algoim. ' Tho Knoxville Express says; Wo have here in Knoxville an industry that ought to receive a, more liberal and generous patronage, We refer to the Tlio Iowa Mutual Association—Good Security nnd Clump Jljiton. Tlio West Union Gir/.oUo of April » says: J. B. lloniinan, secretary of tho Iowa Mutual Tornado liiHumnco association, informs us that tho association is doing a' much larger business this year than over before. Up to this time last year tho secretary had received about COO applications, and up to tho present time this your lie has received over 800, receiving over 22.5 during March. Tho reliability, usefulness, and cheapness of this association is becoming well known and appreciated by those who wish thin class of insurance. It has nearly $11,000,000 in risks and over §2,000 cash in tho hands of tho treasurer, and could pay a loss of over $12,000 with only one mill assessment. Tho association has not made an assessment since 1888, and then ono one-half mill on the dollar, and In tho meantime have paid all losses and expenses and increased tho fund on hand by over $800 with tho small amount paid in when parties insure. There is no reason why nearly all tho property in Iowa should not bo insured in this association. It is purely mu'.ual—gives insurance ut actual cost—no speculation, and the small amount you do pay goes to help some unfortunate instead of enriching some corporation. If you moot with a loss and are not insured it is your own fault and you deserve hut little sympathy, when you can got your insurance at so,little cost, The association is endorsed and patronized by many of tho prominent men of Iowa, Tho officers and directors are old and experienced mutual insurance men, tho secretary being ono of our own citizens, who is well and favorably known. Anyone wishing insurance in this association must make tho fact known, as it employs no ono whoso business it is to urge you to insure. If you wish to protect your property apply to your local ugont, or address tho secretary as above. K. W. Donovan is general agent for tho above-named company, and will cull upon tho farmers of Kossuth county within a few days. Those having risks to place will do well to wait and see him.
