Secretary Proctor is fond of whist, pool, and horses, especially horses. Secretary Noble goes to the thea tre once a month or so. Secretary Rusk's favorite amusement (as described by himself) is " in a general way listening to a good story from somebody." punishment of evil doing coines quickly Mr. Hudson was most enthusiastic in hi OUll EXI'OHT Ml!AT THAIXK. Secretary Rusk was in Chicago last week attending to putting his new meat Inspection system into operation, and while there talked of our export meat trade. His plans and the results he .hopes to accomplish will 1x3 of interest to all cattle and hog districts, and especially to northern Iowa. He says that the inspection of meat for export is now under full headway, and every quarter that goes abroad bears a tag certifying that it has been inspected and that the animal from which it was taken wus healthy and in proper condition for human food. Many of the difficulties he has met in getting our meat'ndmittcd are being disposed 0 of in consequence of this inspection. Pleu- ro-pneumonia has been stamped out under Secretary Rusk's administration, and tho present English law that all American cattle must be killed within two days of landing ho hopes to soon have withdrawn. Another big saving he has made to the cattle shipper is in preventing Texas fever, which has been destroying thousands of cattle, «nd which has increased insurance. He has already saved $5 a head in insurance to shippers. At present, however, he says his chief interest is in getting our pork admitted to Germany and Franco. He proposes to make a microscopic examination of pork for trichina?, and thus meet the most serious objection to our meats. The Tribune, in reporting his conversation, says: secretary Rusk said when naked for trmln i fori " lltio " ]ln regard to tho foreign ^"^'" p ,? r . k P.V«'" cts that thta trade fell The Des Moines Saturday Review comes out with a fine portrait of K. P. Clarkson, the present owner of the State Register. One would never Judge from it that he had such streaks of bourbonism as occasionally crop out in the paper. For a leading republican paper to be denouncing the civil service law at this time is not much better than for the Tennessee mountaineers to be voting for Jackson. The Register should try to catch up with the crowd. Elaine's health is now satisfactory to his friends. The Philadelphia Times for the democrats says: " The news comes REV.

W. A. Black, A. M., presiding elder of Algona district, in Grace M. E. church, Morning Side. His theme was " The Elements of a True Character.' The text was Hebrews xi., 24, "By faith Moses, when lie came to years, refused to become the son of Pharaoh r s daughter, but chose rather to suffer the afflictions of the children of God for a season."

A Misleading Report from Kossnth County—Iowa Crops for the Week and Month. In summing up the conditions in the state for June the state report for Kossuth county is as follows: Rainfall in this section for the past three months very light, and ground .became very dry. The late rains improved the outlook very materially for all crops. Cut worms have been damaging to corn. In view of the fact that a few fields have been made late by lack of rain, and a few fields of corn hurt by cut •worms, this report ie not wholly incorrect.

Let us discuss tho rewards of Moses which ho actually received. We notice A democratic boom is being started for Jsnac P.

The kinotograph is the name of the now muchino with which Edison promises to entertain tho public. It gives to tho eyo what tho phonograph does to tho car, and between the two tho opera, tho prize light, and tho preacher can bo both soon and hoard anywhere for "a nioklo in tho slot." Tho plan of tho kinotograph is simple enough. Photographs are taken of whatever is to bo preserved at tho rate of forty-eight a second. Those moved rapidly before tho oyo give a composite picture of tho scono, ouch Ilguro moving as in life. Tho only diillculty in perfecting this machine is in getting accurate photographs at so rapid u rate.' But Edison lias a kinotograph made, and his visitors have already soon a man bow, take off his hat, and net so naturally, all •through a little hole in a pine box, that tho possibility is no longer doubted. Edison himself says: .. " Whou tho machine Is porfooted, which it will bo long hoforo it can bo exhibited at the world's fair, ouch littlo musclo of tho singer's faco will bo soon to work, his facial expression with its ovory change will bo exactly reproduced, and tho stride and positions will bo natural, and will vary as do tlioso ol tho porson himself. That is only ono part of what tho machine will do. To the sporting fraternity 1 can say that bo- Toro long It will bo possible to apply this system to prize lights and boxing exhibitions. Tho whole scono, with tho comments of spectators, tho talk of tho seconds, * P., 1101 ?, 0 of lh " blows, and so on, will bo faithfully transferred." If 'Sullivan moots Slavin and the .kinotograph and phonograph are both ready, all coming generations will have to do to see Boston's renowned John L. will bo to turn ono muchino looso on a screen and open tho other to tho oar, and see the varied and elevating scenes of tho prize ring while listening to its variegated add vigorous English. What would not tho world give for a faithful picture of Noro Mddling while Rome burned, and for the faithful reproduction of tho tune he played? The possibilities of tho kinotograph are unlimited. Goldfiold Chronicle: Fred Waterhouse, tho good nuturod cigar man from Algona, was in town lust week, selline- our dealers a fresh supply of his excellent cigars. Come again soon, Fred. A Livormore correspondent in the Humboldt Independent writes- A goodly number of our young people attended tho commencement exercises of the high school at Algona last week and report an interesting time. Emmetsburg Reporter: Frank Nicoulin of Algona 1ms been on our streets at different times during the week Mrs. Hibbard bus boon visiting at Algona, with her brother Milton Start- On her return she wus accompanied by ono of her nephews. The Spencer Reporter says: As it is now known that tho Dickinson county delegation are in favor of Frank W Calkins for senator, and us Clay county has no other candidate, Frank's chance for tho nomination scorns fine, and that of course means an election. Charles City Intelligencer: Tho Mason City school board were so well satisfied with Miss Sykos as a teacher of vocal music, that they have elected her to another year. Charles City made a mistake when tho district meeting voted to drop music from tho school course. The Reporter says: "They have discovered a milk well in Kousuth county, but tho editor of THE UPPER DES MOINES insists on mixing whisky with tho product; hence its report of it cannot bo trusted." This story is absurd on its faco. Wo never mix whisky with milk, besides Emmetsburg is the" nearest place where whisky can be had. Jeweller Shaffner of Fort Dodge has on oxibition a watch over 100 years old The case, movement and all are exactly as put up in the factory. The watch is silver, three times us largo as an ordinary silver watch of tho nineteenth century. Tho dial is fashioned and numbered exactly as the modern watch Mr. Schaftnor wus an Algona jeweler many years. Sheldon Mail: Goo. E. Clarke, attorney for the Milwaukee road, was in bholdon on Monday to confer with Mayor Bowloy regarding tho proposed opening and extension of Fourth avenue across the Milwaukee company's tracks, whore tho company wishes to rebuild tho freight depot that was recently destroyed by fire. The company insists that tho depot will have to bo rebuilt on the old site, and seeks to nave tho street crossing made on Fifth avenue instead of Fourth. who loves to do right, scorns "to be mean, is unselfish and magnanimous. No matter what his station in life is he is and ever will bo blessed. Another reward WUH tho divine favor. Moses was in favor with God; no man in his day was so honored by God, and no man hud such close communion with him. Again lie was blessed with visions from God and admitted to the holy of holies, where he received the law from the hand of God. Notice some of the characteristics of faith as manifested in the life of Moses: Reverence—This characteristic is not necessary to thread tho labyrinths of learning. It is though for the opening of the doors of our spiritual nature and the admission of God. Righteousness—Moses wrought righteousness and all the category of blessings that God could bestow us a mark of favor was bestowed upon him. Young men of the university, said wn°,, P1 i ellCl ? e i' in Closin £' tho P lfln of worldly wisdom, of conscientious right doing Is before you. Any other plan will insure condemnation. The history of the world shows this. Everything not based upon conscientious right doinsr always fails. Ever remember that the pure in heart shall only see God The treasures of earth will be dropped like a worthless flower at the crossing- of the river of death. Nothing will be lasting, nothing will be worth having except a character formed by true christ- um faith and conscientious right doing. THEY MERBILY SIN(J. The Kan BUM Alliance Ifaa a Sons Book-Some of Their Khymea. M. L. Clarke is in Missouri and sends us a copy of a paper there which gives an account of Kansas politics. It will not be long winded speeches, nor brass bands, nor torchlight processions, the paper says, that will make the people's party a factor in the campaign of 1892. The Kansas farmers have adopted a far more effective manner of carryin«r on a campaign. The now plan is nothing more or less than an alliance hymnal for use in tho sub-ullinnces. It is a collection of the songs which have been found effective in organizing alliances. M. L. Clarke marks a few of the poetical selections. One runs: "Rouse ye people today; do not longer loo longbow we have loitered, iimlti ° l "'wave' Mpiln ' gl " d D »»nor "0 longer will °' 01 ' "lave 1 "? ° f th ° fl ' ee bUt tho llOMe of tho Another is: The Week's Keport. DES MOINES, June 19.—The average rainfall in the state was excessive. It is safe to say the drouth is quite effectively broken, and it is an agreeable break of the monotony of complaint to hear of too much moisture. The general effect on crops, in the state at large, will be very beneficial, if it is succeeded by favorable weather for cultivating corn and the ripening of grain. Hut the heavy storms wrought considerable damage in many localities by washing out corn and flooding crops on bottom lands. In many sections in the southern districts small grain crops show a tendency to lodge, and it is probable there will be considerable loss from that cause. Clear weather and sunshine, however, may largely remedy that trouble. On the whole the crop outlook is good. Crop Statistics for Iowa. The monthly bulletin contains the following interesting statistics concerning Iowa crops: Of spring wheat 304 correspondents report an increase in the acreage, and 320 a decrease, showing an average decrease of 1 per cent. Its condition, as reported by 744 correspondents, is 94| per cent., against 93J last year. The total acreage 2,071,908 —a decrease of 20,928 acres. Of corn there has been an increase of Sf per cent, in the area planted of this great staple, as reported by 920 observers. This adds-748,984 to the number of acres planted, as compared with last year, making a total acreage of 9,308,811. From every county we have reports of the depredations of the cut and wire worms, but the full extent of damage cannot at this time be estimated More than the usual amount of replanting has been necessitated by the destructive work of these pests. Of spring barley 272 observers note an increase and 150 a decrease, giving an increase of 2i per cent, in its acreage. Condition of crop by 487 observers, 92* per cent.
