Having secured the agency of the New England Loan and Trust Company, I am now prepared to make farm loans on five to ten years' time at the lowest possible rate, with privilege of partial payments before due. Office over Chrischilles' store, Algona. ______ S. S SESSIONS. Abraham Lincoln, When leaving his homo at Springfield, 111., to be inaugurated president of the United States, made a farewell address to his old friends and neighbors in which ho said, "Neighbors, give your hoys a chance." These words come with as much force today as they did thirty years ago. How give them this chance? Up in the northwest is a great empire waiting for young and sturdy fellows to come and develop it end " grow up with the country." All over this broad land are the young fellows, the boys that Lincoln referred to, seeking to better their condition and get on in life. Here is their chance I The country referred to lies along the Northern Pacific railway. Here you can find pretty much anything you want. In Minnesota, and in the Eed River valley of North Dakota the finest of prairie lands fitted for wheat and grain, or as well for diversified farming. In western North Dakota and Montana are stock ranges limitless in extent, clothed with the most nutritious of grasses. If a fruit farming region is wanted there is the whole state of Washington to select from. As for scenic delights the Northern Pacific railroad passes through a country unparalleled. In crossing the Rocky, Bitter Roots, and Cascade mountains the greatest mountain scenery to bo seen in the United States from the car windows is found. The wonderful bad lands, wonderful in graceful form and glowing color, are a poem. Lakes Pend d' Oreille and Coeur d' Alene are alone worthy Of a trans-continental trip, while they are the fisherman's untima thule, The ride along Clark's fork of the Columbia river is a daylight dream. To cap the climax this is the only way to reach the far-famed Yellowstone park. To reach and see all this the Northern Pacific railroad furnishes trains and service of unsurpassed excellence. The most approved and comfortable palace sleeping cars; the best dining cars that can be made; Pullman tourist cars good for both first and ' second-class passengers; easy riding day coaches, with baggage, express, and postal cars, all drawn by powerful Baldwin locomotives, make a train fit for royalty itself. Those seeking for new homes should take this train and go and spy out the land. To be prepared write to CIIAS. S. FEE, G. P. & T. A., St. Paul, Minn. WE have a big line of warm, fleece- lined shoes.

The city of Carson, Nev., experienced he other evening the thickest and cold- st pogonip fog "in the memory of the oldest inhabitant." The pogonip fog is >eculiar to elevated altitudes in the Ne- p ada Sierras, which is something for us o be thankful for. The pogonip ascends rom the valleys, and its chill embrace s so much feared by the Indians, who re predisposed to affections of the lungs, fciat they change their camp if apprised iy the. atmospheric conditions that the readed fog is approaching. Odgen, a chemist of the Nevada min- ng bureau, furnishes this pleasing de- cription of the pogonip: "In the White >ine mountains, the Toyabi, the Myko nd the Parranagat ranges it is quite ommon to see the trees, houses and verything out in the open gradually be- ome white without any apparent cause, 'here is no perceptible fog, but the hot ir from the valleys gradually ascends .p. the mountain side, and becoming rystallized, the minnte crystals attach lemselves to anything insight. This henomenon affects human beings in ust the same manner, and when the fog asses by, the frozen particles will ad- lere to the hair and clothing, producing very grotesque effect."—Providence burnal. Two Kinds of Italians. The monument which is to be erected n New Orleans in memory of the late ihief of Police Hennessey is nearing completion at the works of the Hallowell Me.) Granite company. The monu nent has three bases, the lowest 7J^ feet square. On the top base the name 'Hennessey" is chiseled in raised letters. The capital is two feet in height with paneled sides. Surmounting the capital is a plain granite column thirteen 'eet in height. At the foot of the col umn is the coat of arms of Louisiana, and above that is a representation of the dead chief's badge. From the draped top of the column are suspended a >oliceman's belt and a club, like those vorn by the dead chief. A singular circumstance in connection with this monument is that seven of the nine men employed in making it are Italians. Speaking of that, Joseph Archi, who has charge of the work, said, The Italians who are doing this work are of a different class altogether from ;he New Orleans Italians who killed Hennessey, and they are in perfect sym- iathy with the Americans who shot our evil minded countrymen."—Boston Transcript. Mrs. Helwlg's 5,034 loose Teeth. Armed with a search warrant Treasury Agents Soehnglen and Harlan visited the residence of Dr. Emniey Helwig, a female physician, and after ransacking the place they located a big mckage of false molars. The teeth were all single, no sets being found. They numbered just 5,034. The woman was taken before Chief Treasury Agent Scanlan, where she admitted having drought the teeth from Germany. She came to America Oct. 4,1890. There is a duty of CO per cent, on porcelain teeth, and as the lot was valued at $900 the duty would have been considerable. After safely passing the customs officers at New York Mrs. Helwig came to Chicago, where she opened a dentist's office. This failing to pay she hung out her shingle as a female physician.—Chicago Tribune. Made Things Lively. Although the district school in Holloway, Conn., was tightly closed during the vacation, there was one caller that kicked up a rumpus. It was a thunderbolt, but where it entered can only be conjectured. During its short stay it passed through a wide range of studies, including spelling, reading, grammar arithmetic and geography. Besides throwing new light upon the books treating on these subjects, it tore up the fioor, splintered the desks and in its e» citing exit carried off part of the win. dow sash.—Yankee Blade. ~ Pretty Good Pay for » jrujroiv..... William K. Vanderbilt, not feeling very vellthe other day, decided to take I So Europe, and he wanted a physician to go with him. The doctor saidhe 3d not afford to leave bis practice, BALDNESS HEREDITARY. So Says a Hairdresser In a learned Discourse on the Subject. "About bald heads, now," said a hair- iresser who professed to know all about rirsute deficiency and its causes, "they are as much due to heredity as are red heads, black heads, curly heads or heads that are not curly. And why are men so commonly bald and women bald so uncommonly? There are doctors and men of science who point to that fact to strengthen their well known high hat theory of baldness. They affect to believe, and insist on their belief, that the high silk mtand the hard felt hat are responsible for most of the baldheaded men, the un- rielding pressure of such headgear constricting the blood vessels which nour- sh the hair bulbs, and thus destroying their vital properties, the result being death of the roots and unavoidable capillary scantiness. Women, say these scientific speculators, do not injure the rttals of their hair by such means, and hus are rarely chronically bald. "Maybe they are right, but I don't be- ieve it. Everybody knows that man, as the head of the family, has to go to he front and stay there in the capacity of the breadwinner. The strain of life comes the most severe on the man in hat respect. He it is who suffers the anxieties and battles against the disap- lointments of business, speaking of life n general. What makes men prema- urely old? Just these anxieties and truggles. If prematurely old, why not prematurely bald, which is a natural ac- 3ompaniment of untimely age? Woman has less brain stress. Her sympathies with the man in his struggle may be great, and usually are, but they do not make the demands on her organization hat tell so severely on the system of the man. "I account for much baldness among men by this theory of nervous exhaus- ion, but then what will explain its prevalence among men whose circumstances lo not require them either to indulge in msiness anxieties or undergo business disappointments? Thus we see the easy going man about town, not yet in his irime as to years, with no haunting ihought of tomorrow, yet as bald as his grandfather was at seventy. We see the )ampered child of fortune, son of a mil- ionaire father, who toils not, neither doth he spin, yet Elijah, whom the bad >oys mocked, at the same time the she )ears came out of the wilderness and dined upon them, was not arrayed in .ess hair than one of these. Some might explain this by the sweeping charge of dissipation, but it will not do. I have among my patrons youth of this kind who are models of sobriety, propriety and simple living, and yet they are as Dald as doorknobs. "Heredity is the only explanation that jan be made of this mysterious departure of the hair in early life, although Professor Eaton, an English scientific person who has made investigation on the subject aspecialty for years, does not believe it, and stoutly declares that the cause of baldness is no nearer discovery than it was a hundred years ago. "But whether I am right or wrong in my theories I know I am right in this, and that is when a man is once bald he is always bald, unless his hair has fallen out from the effects of fever. In that case it will generally return in time of its own accord. But a head that has gradually lost its hair while the owner of it is in good physical condition has lost it for good. If it wasn't so do you suppose there would be so many bald- headed doctors and barbers?" — New York Sun. How nn Elephant Eats. An elephant's digestive functions are very rapid, and the animal therefore requires daily a large amount of fodder —000 pounds at least. In its wild state the elephant feeds heartily, but wastefully. It is careful in selecting the few forest trees which it likes for their bark or foliage. But it will tear down branches and leave half of them untouched. It will strip off the bark from other trees and throw away a large portion. As it is a nocturnal animal, it selects its trees by the senses of touch and smell. Its sense of smell is so delicate that a wild elephant can scent an enemy at a distance of 1,000 yards, and the nerves of its trunk are so sensitive that the smallest substance can be discovered and picked up by its tiny proboscis. An elephant's palate is very delicate, and the animal is whimsical in selecting or rejecting morsels of food.—Youth's Companion, Diarrhea and Digestive Troubles. The connection between teething and diarrhea has been considered until of recent years as beyond question. But even this is very doubtful. For ourselves, we should have no difficulty theoretically in supposing that painful teething might upset the digestion, just as in nervous older children and adults we see excitement and mental anxiety produce like results. But actually, the more the cases are examined the less certain is the relation of the bowel trouble to the supposed .cause. Here again developments in the digestive organs may have an influence, and the effect of heat, either directly upon the nervous system of the child or by injuring, food, is shown by the prevalence of these diseases in surn- mer ,—j)r. Henry D. Chapin in Babyhood. . Weeping Trees. The literature of "weeping trees" is enormous, much of it being plainly mythical, but there is a large basis of fact upon which most of these marvelous stories rest. Many travelers have described the famous "rain tree" of Pa- drftdoca, Isle of Ferro. John Cookburn, in 1735, describes a tree at Vera Pas, Central America, from which pure water continually dripped from every leaf and branch.—St. Louis Republic.

The story is being told in New York that the proprietor of a certain well THE known morning newspaper has made an offer to a successful publisher of Chicago to come to New York for five years at an annual salary of $100,000. Whether this report be true or not, it has occasioned a good deal of gossip. Perhaps in nothing more than in the question of salaries is there so much said that is tmtrue. I have no doubt there are a small number of gentlemen who are paid from $25,000 to $100,000 a year for their services, lint whether they are worth it or not is another question. The tendency is always to exaggerate on the salary question anyhow, and it is more than likely that not half the stun mentioned is actually paid to any man. It is the same way with the authors of books. A little while ago it was said that Ward McAllister had received $25,000 for his published volume on "Society as I Have Found It." Mr. McAllister now comes forward and spoils this pretty fiction by stating positively that he received only about $8,700, and that is why he hesitates about accepting an offer made to him by a Chicago firm of publishers. Ho says there is no money in books. The men who are paid $100,000 a year in New York for any services whatever are so few as to be lonesome. Those who receive $50,000 could probably bo numbered inside of a hundred. Those who receive $25,000 a year are of course more numerous, but there are not enough of them to cause any very general disturbance in financial centers. And I am quite inclined to the belief that any man who receives from $10,000 to $20,000 a year as salary is, like the famous Reilly who kept the hotel, doing exceedingly well.—Foster Coates in New York Mail and Express. A Dog's Fidelity. . A living example of a dog's fidelity is presented by that noble Newfoundland owned by the late Oscar C. McCulloch. He is a large dark brown fellow and is well known to the congregation of the Plymouth church. He was generally permitted to attend church services during the life of his master, and in fact was considered a privileged character about the institute. On rare occasions he was even dignified with a place at the Rev. McCulloch's feet in the pulpit. At the meeting of the National Assacia- tion of Charities last year at Plymouth church this dog appeared regularly every morning and afternoon upon the rostrum with his master. The dog still goes to church and walks about the room as though he were looking for somebody—no doubt he is. Frequently he curls up under a seat in the auditorium at the beginning of services, and if anybody attempts to take the seat over him he offers a prompt protest that settles matters. This dog is very popular about the church and is as dignified as any potentate under the sun, but when it conies to a question of personal rights the handsome canine is decidedly patriotic.—Indianapolis Journal.

FARM LOANS MADE From 5 to 7 Years at 7 l»r cent. Carried a Barn on His Back. Matthew La Page, of Woodhaven, had a small, barn he wished to move to another site. He told Cyrus E. Smith, superintendent of the Woodhaven public schools, of his plans, and explained that it would cost him considerable to put the building on a new foundation. Smith laughingly offered to move the barn for nothing. La Page ridiculed the idea, when Smith asked to be shown the spot to which the building was to be carried. Upon learning this he visited the barn, which is a shell, weighing about 600 pounds. He rigged a number of ropes so that he could take the weight across his shoulders. Harnessed in this fashion, the man of muscle lifted the barn with ease, carried it twenty-five feet and set it easily on the new foundation.—New York World. A New Sluslcal Instrument. The "pedal clarionet," as it is not very happily called, stands an octave below the bass clarionet, and in one of its two varieties produces the lowest note yet attained by any instrument, with the one exception of the organ. Its tone is wonderfully distinct, even in its deepest notes, and it is far more agreeable than that of the double bassoon, with which it is most closely allied in compass. It has a range of three octaves. Its qualities were elaborately exhibited by Mr. Bretonneau, of the Paris opera.—Boston Courier. C. L. LUND. .r. .T. HYAN IL/CrifcTID [Successors to C. L.

Best Grade made The Green Carnation In London. The credit of introducing the new flower, the green carnation, to English society has been given to Oscar Wilde. While it is true that he wore one in his buttonhole the evening on which his play, "Lady Windermere's Fan," was first publicly enacted, it was already known to a few leaders of fashion in Great Britain and was becoming popular there without waiting for his sanction. The green carnation had been worn for weeks before that time on the Paris boulevards.—New York Tribune. Colored Statues. Boston has a new fad.
