THEtTPPER DV* M01NES. ALGONA, tOWA, SEPTEMBER 28,1892. REDS ARE RAMPANT £ aris Anarchists Preparing to Celebrate the Anniversary of the Republic. (Things to be Made as Disagree able as Possible for the Authorities. J ate of the Chicago Brethren Referred to in Their Posters. PAIUS, Sept. 21.—The anarchists are preparing a program of their own for the celebration to-morrow of the 100th anniversary of the proclamation of the French republic by the national convention. They have posted the pro- fr&m of the proposed anarchist celebration over the official programs (or the fetes of to-morrow. The anarchists take occasion to refer in their progratas to the massacre at JTournies, and evidently mean to make things as disagreeable as possible for the authorities. They also allude in their posters to the fate of the Chicago anarchists, and use language which can be construed only as inviting to social war. RACING WITH FLAMES. rtrag the body back to Rice's house. Mrs. Long fainted three times on the way. When a posse went to Long's house this morning he fortified himself in a care and held the crowd at bay while he forced his wife to write a statement. He then attempted to cut his own throat, but did not inflict a mortal would. He was captured after a desperate fight and jailed. HARVARD'S FOOT-BALL TEAM SUFFERING IN HAMBURG- The Cholera Kpldetnlo lirlngx Starra- tlon In Its train. HAMBERG, Sept. 21.—The present cholera epidemic is carrying in its train such want and suffering as has never before marked the history of Hamburg, and daily the distress is increasing. Nearly all the trades in the city are at a standstill, and thousands of workmen who depend upon their daily toil for the support of themselves and their families find it utterly impossible to earn a pfennig. The people who have heretofore done business with Hamburg are afraid now to handle anything made in the plague-stricken city and in consequence every branch of industry shows an entire absence of orders, Of course, with no demand for their products manufacturers find it impossible to keep their employes at work, and daily the idle population of the city is gaining fresh accessions from the ranks of clerks, artisans and unskilled laborers who are discharged because of the utter stagnation of business. A Boat on the St. Lawrence Rufthed to the Shore to Save the Passenger*. MONTREAL, Quo., Sept. 21.—About 5 o'clock last evening the Richelieu and Ontario Navigation company's steamer Corinthian, with almost 100 American and Canadian tourists, half of them women and children, had just run the Coteau Rapids when it caught fire near the smokestack. The first mate noticed the danger and warned the Captain, who ordered the passengers all forward and the boat to be beached. On account of the shoals the Corinthian could not be beached at that point, so it was sent ahead at full steam down the river till a suitable place was found. The fire was gaining all the time. When the boat finally reached the shore the after part of the steamer was a mass of flames. The passengers had a narrow escape but behaved with great coolness. Most of the baggage was lost. Twent3 r minutes after being beached the steamer was burned to tin- water's edge. Loss, §00,000. The passengers arrived in the city last evening. EVICTIONS IN IRELAND. Trouble Expected When tfte Sheriff VlhitH the ConntiOK. Dtinr.iN, Sept. 31.—There is renewed excitement everywhere in Dublin in consequence of the resumption of the eviction of tenants who are in arrears for rent. In County Clare, the sheriff proceeded yesterday with a largo force of .police to Cool ready to dispossess delinquent tenants, but instead of the resistance expected the first tenant was ready to pay his back rent. At the next house the sheriff found the same condition of affairs. The result of the raid was that the rents were paid and , none of the tenants were evicted. I Many of the tenants on the estate of , Lord Ely, in County Fermanagh and ' County Wcxford, arc in arrears and I preparations are being made for cvic- i tions. None of the tenants on those estates have been dispossessed in four years and trouble is anticipated when the writs are served. Other Cholera News. BERLIN, Sept. 21.—The Czar has ordered Gen. Gourko to report on the prevalence of cholera in Poland, but has refused to modify the program for the military maneuvers. BEIU.IN, Sept. 21.—Hundreds of Hamburgers are having their supplies of provisions sent to them by relatives in Berlin. They do .this through fear of being infected by food purchased in Hamburg, which is also rendered unpalatable by the odor of brimstone used in disinfection and which permeates the whole city. PAKIB, Sept. 21.—Besides forbidding excursions to the city on the occasion of the coming Republican fete, the government has forbidden railway excursions to Lourdes and other shrines from infected cities. Hotel keepers are angry over the loss of their expected harvest. State of Nevada Sent Biu:k. Quarantine, Sept. 21.—Dr. Jenkins ordered back to lower quarantine this afternoon the Allen line steamer State of Nevada, on account of a recent death after her arrival in dock. The City of Paris at 5 p. m. was allowed to proceed to her dock. Ten Cases on Hoard. Lisbon, Sept. 21.—It is stated that the steamer Reichstag, which arrived in Tagus yesterday, from Hamburg, and which was ordered to leave the river, had ten cases of cholera on bonrd. AT THE WHITE HOUSE. ARRIVED TOO LATE. Milwaukee Tanner* Will Not Trent With oa Union Strikers at All. MIMVAUKKK, Wis., Sept, 21.—Efforts are being made by the leaders of the striking tanners to bring the strike, which has lasted eight mouths, to a close. President (jorapers of the American Federation of Labor came quietly to the city a few clays ago and had a conference with some , of the leading tanners with a view to compromising the ] strike. Mr. Gompurs' proposition has | been presented to the Leather Manufacturers' association, which has taken no formal action on it yet, although they all expect an answer will be given to Mr. Gompers on his return. The time has gone by when a settlement could have been reached between the union and the bosses. The striking tanners, or as many of them as remain in the city, continue to draw their weekly benefits. Over $50,000 has been paid out in this way. Killed Ills Wife. NEW YAVEN, Conu., Sept. 2J.—Mrs. Edward L. Potter was shot and in- Btantly killed by her husband about 11 o'clock last night. Potter, who was alone with his wife at the time, says he was cleaning a rifle, when the weapon was in some way discharged, its contents entering his wife's back just below the right shoulder. According to Potter's story the case is one of the "did : mit-luiow-it-was-loaded" order. Potter, however, was placed under arrest and will have to answer to a charge of manslaughter in the city •tourt to-morrow moruiuir. MISSOURI MURDER. Neighbor Killed with an Ax -- Capture Af. ter a llurd Fight. St. Joseph, Mo., Sept. 21.—Win. Rice, a furjper living near Bethany, went to the house of his neighbor, Long, last night and was murdered with an ax. Long, who is believed to be crazy, compelled his wife and daughter to Mra. Harrison Arrives Safely at Washington After Her Long Journey. WASHINGTON, Sept. 21.—At a quarter of 9 o'clock this morning the special train on the Pennsylvania railroad bearing the President with his afflicted wife, his son, daughter, grandchildren and other relatives and friends who have been at Loon Lake with Mrs. Harrison dui- ing her illness, drew into the station here. Thirty minutes later Mrs. Harrison was resting easily in her bed at the White house, having accomplished her s long journey without ill effect. Her physician, Dr. Gardner, reports > she stood the trip very well, and tha her spirits were much buoyed up ijj reaching Washington, which, he thinks, will be'greatly in her favor. Daniel I>»iifflierty'a Will. Pini.ADKi.i'iiiA, Pa., Sept.. 21.—The will of Daniel Dougherty, the lawyer and 01 ator, has been admitted to probate. The petition accompanying the will places the value of the estate at $140,000. This is devised absolutely to his wife (who is also made executrix) during her life, with full power to make such provisions by will for its distribution at her death as she may deem desirable. In the event of her not making a will, then the testament provides for its distribution among the testator's children. Hurt In a Collision. CLEVELAND, Ohio, Sept. 21.—A motor and trail-car on the Cedar avenue line were smashed into kindling-wood by a, passenger ^train on the Cleveland & Pittsburg railroad about 8 o'clock .this morning'. One passenger on the street car, a man, sustained a broken leg and a lady was badly bruised about the head. HOMESTEADERS MURDERED. True Kills Against All -- 107 Indict, meutti. Pittsburg, Sept. 21.—The grand jury found true bills today aguiust all of tho Homesteaders charged with murder, riot and conspiracy, 107 indictments in all. Among them are three for murder against Hugh O'Donnell, Hugh Ross and Burgess McLuckie. 'Tho Chicago Krlbery Case. CHICAGO, Sept, 21.—By direction of Mayor Washbnrne a warrant has been sworn out by Assistant Corporation Counsel George A. Dupuy before Justice George P. Foster for the arrest of Michael C. McDonald on a charge of having attempted to bribe Police Justice Charles A. Woodman to render a decision favorable to the defendants in the Garfield Park club Burns wrote songs when he was a child and had some published when 16 years old. All of JLnst Year's Players Available, And Also Very Vrottthlng Sew Men. Candidates for the Yale, Harvard and Princeton football teams have already begun regular practice, although the universities do not open their doors until next week. As Intimated by Mr. Stagg hi his interview last week, Yale is worse off than either of her rivals, having lost six of the champion team of last season. Harvard, on the other hand, is signally fortunate. All of the players on last year's eleven, with the possible exception of Lake, will return to college this fall, and there seems to be little doubt hi his case. In all probability he will buck the rush line tin's year just as he has for the last two seasons. These men are so well known that a description of their playing abilities is almost unnecessary. The mere fact, however, that they were members of last year's eleven does not prove that they will play again, says the Boston Globe. Several of them are almost sure to lose their positions. Trafford, Hallowell, Newell and Lake are such good meu that they are reasonably sure to remain on the eleven. Trafford is by no means the best full-back iu the country today, but he is so much superior to any one clso at Harvard that no change would be made hi his position even if he was not captain. A year ago Hallowell was regarded as the best end rusher *u the country, but the poor showing he mado hi the Yale game last year, when he was so clearly outplayed by Young Hiiikey, has done much to injure his reputation. Newell likewise was conceded to be the best player at his position in the country. Last year, however, Newell did not do nearly as well; he was not in. first-class physical condition and his playing materially fell off. Unless Newell conies back to college this year in better shape than he did last fall no great improvement cnu be expected from him, and he never was all that could be desired as a ground gainer. Lake was the only one of the quartette who played as well last year the year before. Corbett Is pretty sure not to play on the team this year. Too much was expected of him last year, and when he made that costly miss at Sprimrlield Gorbott took a drop which he will find it hard work to overcome. Brilliant at times, but unreliable, and always weak as a tackier, Corbett has a poor chance of playing agalu. Gage made only a fair quarterback, llf. had plenty of spirit, handled the team fairly well, and passed the ball in good shape, but when he was put close behind the line "a good halfback was spoiled to make a poor quarter-back," as an old Harvard player said. Emuious played on. the end last year because no one else could be found. At the last moment a change was almost decided upon, and this year he is likely to be driven from the team by one of the several candidates who will try for his place. Waters never dirt M'hat was expected of him. He apparently had pll the qualifications of a splendid player, but in a game he always fell short. This year Waters may be tried back of the line and if Ills weight can be increased there is talk of putting him at guard. Such a change Is hardly to be expected, however. Dexter played last year largely against his own desires, because he was absolutely necessaiy to tlie strength of the team. With so many heavy men in view this fall, Dexter will hardly be called upon aud he surely will not play of his own free Mill. Bangs will be ready to piny center rusher again if he is needed, but the chances are that a better man may be found. As a hard worker and a fighter Bangs has few superiors, but he is hardly heavy enough to stand up against the big fellows who play iu the center, of the rush line nowadays, ai-ickio was a good guard last year, but slow and pokey; unless lie shows mora vim and snap he is likely to mid his place taken by one of the new men. Now for the players who arc likely to make tbo team this year, some of them new and some of them old. For-center rusher the most prominent candidate will bo Lewis, the mulatto, who filled that position on the Ainherst eleven last year, and did such good work that ho Avas, at tho end of the season, regarded as one of tha best men In the country. For guards there A\lll be Acton, the big oreAV man AA'bo has played football in Ireland and knows enough about the game to be a valuable acquisition to the eleven. Acton will Avelgh fully 200 pounds. Tukey Avas more sought after last year than almost any man at Harvard. It will be remembered that lie used to play tackle on the Bowdolu team. When he entered tho Harvard medical school last year every one supposed that Harvard had gained a HOAV guard, for he Avelghs about 200 pounds, but his people Avould not alloAV him to play. This year, however, the constant solicitation of Dr. Conant had its effect, and Tukey Avill bo on Jarvls Hold Avitli the rest of the candidates. A new man named Pierce from St. Paul's school Is looked upon as a promising young player, although he is yet to be developed. Highlands, the big left-handed pitcher, may be expected to do good Avork this year. He is much heavier than he Avas a year ago and his added experience Avill make him. much more valuable than, he Avas last fall, Avhen he almost made the team. Vail Avill not play football this fall, as he AAlll put most of his time on the creAv of Avliich he has been elected captain. For tackles there Avill be tAVo men Avho did not play on last year's eleven. One is Upton, Avho did so well two years ago and would undoubtedly had played last year if he had sufficiently recovered from a long illness. Upton was always a good rusher and Waters never filled hia place. Tug other 13 Jiason, the baseball catcher, who has about as good a chance of being on the team as any man who will play. Mason's baseball work has been of Immense value to him; this, added to his great strength and unlimited pluck, will almost make the team. Mason can do well as either tackle or end. The most valuable addition to the half-backs will be "Jim" Lee, who played two years ago. Lee will enter the Harvard law school this fall, and great things are expected of hlin. George Gray, one of last year's substitutes, is another man who is likely to take Corbett's place behind the lia>?. Gray is a splendid ground gamer, th-s best tackier in Cambridge and full of pluck. During Inst season he gained about twenty pounds in Aveight. If he can put on a little more flesh, he will I e still more valuable, for lu's light weight always told against him. The most promising new man fo? quarter-back is Fairchild of last year -s Hopkinton's school team. Fairchlld is light, and the fact that he is a freshman Avill be against bun, but with proi..- or training he may give some of tho older players a hard pull. Many changes aro likely to occur even IIOAV before the football season fairly opens. Flayers who are regarded as likely to return to Cambridge may make up their minds otherwise, and the men of Avhom so much Is ex pected may proA-e to be very. Aveak. It is ahvays true that Harvard 1m bright prospects on paper, but it has always happened AAnth one exception that Yale has had the bettor team and won the victory. The first gome of the season AAlll be played at Cambridge, Saturday, Oct. 1, agauist the Dartmouth team. Details in Cheese Makiir_ r . From Bulletin Mi>. 37, of the TCew York Kxpeil m-nt xation. Hoard's Dairyman quotes as follows: In making cheese the milk is gradually heated to a temperature of about 85 degrees P., a slightly higher or loAver temperature being used according to the judgment of the maker, as peculiar conditions may demand. The beating of the milk is accompanied by careful stirring in order to enable the milk to boat uniformly, and also to keep the fat evenly distributed through tho milk. The milk is held at about S3 degrees F. until u very slight amount of acid has been developed, usually known as "ripening;" this ripening may bu hastened by the addition of a small quantity of sour milk. Iu the experiments described In this bulletin, Joliu Boyd's "starter" was used. The exact degree of ripeness is difficult to determine, but tliu skilled cheese maker appears to acquire a sort of intuition, as a result of long training in close observation, which enables him to tell the proper point. The objec-t cf ripwiiuj,' the milli before adding the rennet Is probably to render the action of the rcmiut more rapid. Doubtless, ripening has some other influence, the Imc-teiia thus added in the form of a "startor" tending to develop in the chouse a higher flavor, as In the case ot rip t 'iiiu>,' cream for making butter. In reality, we do not yet understand at all satisfactorily exactly what Influence- the ripening of milk has upon the process of cheese making or upou the finished product. When the milk has boeu held at about 85 degrees F. until properly ripened, a solution prepared from rennet is added in certain proportions according to the quantity of milk used. The action of the rennet is, as previously stated, to solidify or coagulate the casein of the milk. Iu solidifying, the casein of the im'lk entangles and holds fast, mechanically, a large portion of the fat of tliu milk, and also more or less of the ash and sugar of the milk, if properly ripened, to coagulate in ten to twenty minutes; Avhilc, if added to milk that has not been ripened, the rennet may not cause proper thickening- of the milk short of two hours. Again the trained judgment of the cheese maker must be called into action in order to determine AVheii the curd is firm enough to cut and yet not too firm. In the experiments described iu this bulletin, the milk thickened enough for cutting in about fifteen or twenty minutes after tho reuuet Avas added. For cutting curd, knives containing several blades, about half an inch apart, are used. The curd, Avheu cut, Is left In small cubes, each not more than half an Inch In diameter. As soon as the curd is completely cut, it is stirred very gently for ten or fifteen minutes, until the outside of tho pieces of curd sliOAV the appearance of a slight film and the whoy commences to separate freely from the curd. The curd is then heated gradually to a temperature of about 98 degrees F. The rapidity of heating aud the extent of j boating are points Avluch the judgment I of the maker must determine. During' the heating the liurd is kept hi coustaat | but gentle agitation. This beating causes each piece of curd to shrink aud expel moisture, Avhercby it becomes more firm and dry. Iu regard to the; details of this sliriiikiiig and drying action, much remains to be learned, but it is probably due to the combined action, of heat, af rennet and of lactic acid. Af tor tho temperature has reached; ! about OS degrees F., tho heating Is discontinued and the curd is stirred only at intervals sufficient to prevent its packing on the bottom of the vat. When the curd has become sufficiently' firm and dry, It is allowed to settle and the Avhey Is draivu off. To tell exactly ' Avhen Is the proper time to draAv the' Avhey from tho curd, requires the very I best judgment of the maker, for this Is ' one of the most critical points in the' uianufacturing process. Here, cultl-1 vated sense of smell, touch, taste and sight is needed. The most common test used to determine the proper tune to draAv off the wliey is knoAvn as the Iron' test. A portion of curd la squeezed in' the hand, then placed against a hot iron and carefully drawn away from the Iron. If the curd sticks to the iron add is drawn out in little threads, about one-fourth of an Inch long, the whey Is generally ready to be drawn; if the threads are shorter, the action is continued until a satisfactory test is obtained. The test is supposed by the cheese maker to indicate the amount of lactic acid present. That is a rough test for the relative amount of acid present, our experiments showed conclusively. The curd acquires the property of'being drawn out Into threads, probably by action of rennet rather than of acid. It Is stated that in milk coagulated by acid alone the curd does not acquire the property of being drawn Into threads. After the whey is drawn from the curd, the; process of manufacture may be varied, one method of treatment making what is known as stirred curd cheese. We will briefly describe each of these processes. Stirred curd cheese. After the whey has been drained from the curd, the curd is stirred and kept broken up so as to prevent packing. It is kept at a ccr tain temperature, until certain signs indicate to the maker that the curd is ready for the press. The curd is then mixed Avith salt and put Into a mould or hoop and subjected to pressure for at least twelve hours before being removed from the hoop. Cheddar cheese. After the Avhey has been drained from the curd, the curd is packed on opposite sides of the vat leavlug a space in the center to enable the whey to drain off more rapidly. After a time the curd becomes packed or matted and Is cut Into pieces to such size as may be convenient to handle. These pieces are turned over from time to time to alloAV the whey to drain more quickly. When the curd has become pretty Avell freed from whey, the pieces are doubled and the process of doubling Is continued at short Intervals until the Avhole forms a compact pile. It Is then held at a certain temperature, until It assumes a certain condition, Avhich the eye and touch of the maker can detect. The curd is then turned up, spread out and cooled to about 85 degrees F It is then run through ; curd mill, which is a knife made so as to cut the curd Into square strips, half an inch In diameter. After being cut completely, the curd Is salted and put to press. HOi-L DEMANDS A QUARANTIN- Wuutg Protection Against A'e«H«lx From Main burs I""' (JiKtleitn ships. LONDON, Sept. 22.—Tins local authori ties of Hull, which port is most fre* qiiunlcd by r-miffranls from Hamburg 1 , are strongly urging the British government to allow the imposition <>( a prolonged quarantine on all vessi-ls from Hamburg, and especially on ships that are very \tnclean, Avhclher they come from Hamburg or other foreign ports. It is said that on many foreign ships a thorough cleansing is unknown, and that the sanitary condition of the vessels is bad enough to breed disease even without cholera ge.rms, while such germs ntadily become virulent among the tilth of such ships. Three doalhs have already oceurred at the Hull doi-Us on board of Hamburg vessels, and tin- people, of Hull arc gelling panicky and want additional protection. STARVED TO DEATH.

BAY CITY, Mich., Sept. :>.'A —In a two-room shanty in the suburbs of the cit.y, foul with the gathered filth of weeks, tho dead body of Airs. Clara llosiiier was found lying on the bed, where her helplessly crippled husband has lain for years. She had been attacked with fever several days ago, and with no one to nurse her had literally, so the physicians say, starved to death. The husband, too, is also in the throes of death from lack of food. He is scarcely able to speak, but says over a week has elapsed sinee anything passed his lips. He is a veteran of c'le Avar, but, in spite of wounds that nade him a helpless cripple, has steadily refused to apply fora pension. A CRIME FOR CASH. Negroes Butcher a G. A. R. Man for Ills Property.
