One of the best comes from the south part of the county, where a voter is said to have cut Off the prohibition ticket and tried to vote the remainder, - In explaining it to the judges he said that he could vote the other three tickets with good conscience, but he would be cussed if he Could vote for the prohibition candi- datesi In Burt it is told on one voter that after fumbling about in the booth for quite a while he finally stuck his head out and told the judges that if there was nny hole there to put his ticket in he wished they would come and find it for him; ho had looked as long tw he wanted to. And at Wesley a votr-i' held his ticket up out of the top of the booth a while and then announced that if they expected his vote they wanted to take it pretty soon, as he was tired of holding it. Tickets were thrown out for a variety of amusing mistakes. One voter wrote his name across the ticket. Another never opened it, but put on the back " democratic straight." A republican ballot was marked the same way across the top. A number were voted without any marks. A Second ward voter cut the republican ticket out and tried to vote it. Another in the same ward tried to scratch the republican electors and put a mark opposite each name, thereby voting for all of them. In the First ward someone evidenly wanted to scratch Cummins, so he marked opposite his name. It was the only mark on the ticket, so Cummins was the only man who got a vote. In the same ward Doxsee got a ticket with no mark except the one opposite his name; in Irvington a voter in writing in a vote for a road supervisor forgot to mark the top of his ticket, and so voted only for road supervisor, and so on. In spite of all errors, however, everybody speaks well of the new system.

Dr. Sayers attended the state veterinarian meeting at Marshalltown last week, where he was on the board of censors and also on the executive committee. A good representation from the state was present and some very valuable discussions were held.

It was a quiet election, and the new law won its way to popular favor at one trial. Where the Gains "Were Made. The highest republican majority in Kossuth cpunty last year was given to the candidate for lieutenant governor, who had 172. Taking the vote for him by townships, and comparing it with the vote this year for Harrison, it shows in what localities the republicans have been gaining ground. Cresco gives an increased republican majority of 24; Union, 15; the Third ward, 7; Fourth ward, 8; Hebron, 12; .LuVerne, 11; Ledyard, 12; Plum Creek, 8; Swea, 23; Springfield, 11; First ward, 1; Burt, 3, and Portland 2. The democratic townships giving decreased democratic majorities are: Garfleld, 18; German, 4, Lotts Creek, 2; Prairie, 5; Seneca, 17, and Sherman 1. The towns where the democrats have gained are: Second ward, 17; Buffalo, 13; Greenwood, 1; Penton, 3; Harrison, 13; Ramsay, 5; Wesley, 10, and Whittemore 12. In Irvington and Bivordalo the vote is the same as last year. Cresco, Swea, Union, Hebron, and Ledyard among the republican townships, and Garfleld and Seneca among the democratic show the biggest republican gains, while the .democrats instead of showing up so well in Bancroft and.the north end have their chief gains in the classic Second ward, Wesley, and Whittemore. Buffalo and Harrison are the only two northern townships where they have seemed to get ahead. This shows that the story about such a heavy democratic immigration last year was a myth. It shows also that when the republicans do not get into a quarrel on local matters they still have a safe majority in 'the county, Hard on Hyaii. LuVerne News: " How big was John .James Ryan, pa, that people called him great?" Emmetsburg Reporter: The Reporter repeats the question asked before election. Who in is Ryan, who The Century Magazine for 1803. It would be hard for a person who cares for good reading to make a better investment than a year's subscription to The Century Magazine. No region is too remote, no expdnse too groat, if it will only produce what the Century readers want. This is the policy that has made it, as the Pall Mall Budget of London suys, "by far the best of the magazines, English or American." The November number begins a new volume and contains the first chapters of a powerful novel of New York society, called "Sweet Bolls Out of Tune," written by Mrs. Burton Harrison, author of "The Anglomaniacs." In this story the fashionable wedding, the occupants of the boxes in the Metropolitan opera house, the "smart set" in the country house are faithfully reflected, and the illustrations by Charles Dana Gibson, Life's well-known cartoonist, are as brilliant as the novel. In this November number begins also a groat scries of papers on "The Bible and Science," opening with "Does the Bible Contain Scientific Errors?" by Professor Shields of Princeton, who takes decided ground that the bible does not contain scientific errors of any moment, and who most interestingly states the case from his point of view. An important series of letters that passed between Gen. Sherman and his brother, Senator John Sherman, is also printed in November, which number also contains contributions from the " . ---- most distinguished writers, including an article by James Russell Lowell, which was not quite completed at the time of his death. The December Century is to be a great Christmas number—full of Christmas stones, Christmas poems, and Christmas pictures—and in it will begin the first chapters of a striking novel of life in Colorado, "Benefits Forgot." by Wolcott Balestior who wrote "The Naulahka" with Rudyard Kipling.

St. Xlcliolns for YOUIIK Folks. John G. Whittier long ago wrote of St. Nicholas: " It is little to say of this magazine that it is the best children's periodical in the world." Edward Eggleston, author of " The Hoosier Schoolmaster," says of it: "There is not one of the numbers that does not stir the curiosity, inform the memory stimulate thought, and enlarge the ran^e of the imagination." Founded in 1S78, and from the first number edited by Mary Mapes Dodge, St. Nicholas is now entering upon its twentieth year. The most famous writers have contributed to its pages in the past, but never has its editor been able to offer a better programme or a more distinguished list of contributors than for 1893. There is to be a series of illustrated papers on " The Leading Cities of the United States,"—the story of each told by a prominent resident. Edmund Clarence Stedman will write of New York; Thomas W Hig ginson of Boston; New Orleans will be described by Geo. W. Cable, and Baltimore by President Oilman of the John Hopkins university. Dr. Lyman Abbott will tell the story of Brooklyn, and other cities will be treated by other famous men. There will bo articles on the world's fair and a number of pages of funny pictures, etc. Mrs. Kate Douglas Wiggin, the well- known author of " The Birds' Christmas Carol," will contribute the leading serial for St. Nicholas during the coming year. The November number opens with a three- page poem by John G. Whittier, which has in it some of the most beautiful lines the good Quaker poet has ever written. The School Journal says: "Place St. Nicholas in your household and you need have no fears for the lessons taught your children." The magazine is the greatest aid that the teacher and conscientious parent can have.

The new emperor, on mounting the throne, was of course expected to sustain the policy of a minister whom his grandfather had honored with every mark that a loyal subject a or even a money loving one could ask. The reign of Frederick III, less than a hundred days, had been too short and too full of physical suffering to let the world know the strength and breadth of the ruler whom Bismarck next appeared to represent. In his successor the Germans have an emperor who has not only abundant physical energy and endurance, but has with it a contempt for humbug, socialism and the crooked police methods that always suggest a feeble or rotten executive. He is a practical manager and does not pretend to be a savior of society. He has no quack nostrum for poverty, crime, prostitution or the discontent that sets class against class. His business is to see that the government machine runs smoothly, that competent men are employed, that the people's taxes are spent for the public good, that the law is administered without favor and that reforms are inquired into. He has the mind of a Yankee, he loves experiment, his methods are direct. He is the sort of man that forges to the front in a new country. We can imagine him learning his trade in some machine shop, then rapidly rising to a position where inventive talent, thoroughness, patience and, above all, honesty tell—say, at the head of some great manufacturing or shipbuilding enterprise. On his succession to power, 1888, he did what most intelligent young men do when suddenly placed in charge of an estate. He inquired how the previous manager had done his work; he examined personally into cases of alleged wrong; he noted carefully the testimony of qualified 'observers; his eyes were opened to the need of reform in many directions; he suggested these reforms to his manager; the manager did not agree with the master; the manager resigned and now spends his time in embarrassing as far as he can the movements of the manager who has superseded him. The immediate cause of Bismarck's resignation will be known when the emperor chooses to make the matter public. Today we can regard only the official acts of the minister, and from these infer what reason there was for his being retired.—Poultney Bigelow in Forum. room, clad in a night shirt, over which he had buttoned his vest, a pair of boots, and carrying an umbrella under his arm.

Tho Daily Reveille of Whatoom, Wash,, says: »T. C. Burnett, the democratic candidate for sheriff, was takon violently 111 at Clearbrook. He had all the symptoms of Asiatic cholera, and for an hour or two it was roared he would die. They finally gave him a dose of Chamberlain's Colio, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, which revived him until a physician arrived." That is precisely what the manufacturers of that medicine recommend for cholera. Send for a physician, but give their medicine until the physician arrives. If cholera becomes prevalent in this country next summer this preparation will be in great demand, because it can always be depended upon. For sale by all druggists. It Leads All Other Remedies.

Some ingenious person has hit upon a scheme for making artificial clouds for the warming of fields and preventing damage to crops. A number of stoves had been placed ten yards apart around the spot selected, and when they were lighted a thick black smoke was produced. Unfortunately for the success of the experiment, there was too much wind, and the "clouds" were dispersed immediately, the smoke being blown toward the in- closure occupied by the seals, who did not seem at all to appreciate it, ^ It is said that some experiments carried on in the Gironde were far more successful, and that the system will be largely used there to protect the vines. It is said that a vineyard could be made two or three degrees warmer. Several officers attended the experiments yesterday to see whether the process could be utilized for military purposes.—Gah'g. nani Messenger. He Knew All About It. The British legation building in Washington is draped in mourning for the late Duke of Clarence, but everybody doesn't seem to know it. Last week when a visiting delegation was there, two delegates, whether they were from Chicago or not it is not necessary to state, were showing each other the town. As they passed along Connecticut avenue one of them said: "That big brick over there with the portico-chere in front of it is the English legation." "Is that so," said the other, taking it in carefully as tourists do. "It's got mourning on it, I see." "Yes," explained the first one with an air of superior knowledge, "that's for Justice Bradley, who died recently."— Detroit Free Press. H. c. MCCOY, M. D., PHYSICIAN AND SURGEON.

A singular condition has developed in the buffalo herd at the Philadelphia Zoo. Late in last year the hoof and month disease affected the cattle of Exirope very seriously, and there were slight visitations of it in this country. One of these was at the Philadelphia Zoo among the buffalo. Eight of the herd were isolated. Since then the symptoms of this disease have disappeared from all but one of those isolated. This one, however, has lost a hoof, and is now hard at work raising anew one, hobbling around on three legs.
