A Kan Who Has Missed' Hia Calling-, arid is Writing Drafts Instead 1 of Editorials. Geo'. W. Hanna of Lu Verne—The Versatility Exhibited in His Business Methods. THE UPPER DBS MOINES docs not usually publish free advertising, but makes an exception for onco in favor of Geo. W. Hanna's bank announcement fn the Lu Verne News. He says: Our democratic friends have got to the front by denouncing protection in the.following language in their wonderful platform of 1892: "We denounce the republican protection as a fraud upon the labor of the great majority of the American people for the benefit of a few. We declare it a fundamental principle of the democratic party that the federal government has qo power to impose and collect tariff duties, except for the purpose of reve- ',11116'only, Wo demand that the collec- tlon of such taxes be limited to the Help cessitios of the government when hon- economicaUy administered." s . )t course if republican protection is a , -^fraud and is unconstitutional it ought ;Mtobo repealed, wiped out, and tha "^without delay. So immediately afte March 4 that robber "tin tariff, 1 which has made our democratic orators vreep, will be taken oil'. The tax on iron products, which has made robber barons like Carnegie, will be ontirol wiped out. The tax on woolen goods carpets, blankets and poor men' clothes will bo a thing of the past. Thi cotton and glass factories must stanc the competition of cheap labor abroac orjgo down. Protection to agricultura interests is the fraud of frauds, and flail frauds reciprocity is the biggest fraud. So McKinloyism and Blaineism have got to go root and branch. Bu while these robber tariffs are being wjped out the farmer is to become kins df'the earth. Every farmer will wear a British plug hat; English and French made clothing will bo so cheap thai they will bo worn in the milking pens and harvest fields. Nothing American will disgrace his home or even hi& dooi yard, We are told that American markets are all moonshine and beyond the brlnoy doop in some favored free trade land we will more than reap our heart's desire. In that fair land our wheat is to bo sold at fabulous prices and the American steer is to return us his actual weight in gold, British Blilps will bring us what wo need and take our produce abroad. It's possible that some McKinley skeptic will say that such a blessed condition of affairs willlower wages at home, but who cares, Fifty cents a day Is enough for a farmer to pay his hired man, for then he can Keep three or four while he now keeps One and the farmer can rest. Land I Land is the thing to invest your money in. We are still on the market with a nice list. Lands may not increase in value or boom as they did In Harrison's time, for now land that Bold throe years ago for $4 and $5 per acre will bring $20 to $80. But land is safe. A sod shanty and a bale of hay will beat a tin plate mill or a pearl button factory all to thunder after the 4jth of March. Buy land and become a farmer while you wan, is our advice. We have boon told that the tax on State bank issues Is also to be repealed with democratic supremacy. Bobtail money is to again be put in circulation. This bank does not propose to be behind the times. Shortly after the 4th with his wagon shop is now ready to do all kinds of blacksmithing, horseshoe- ing, carriage painting, etc. « ^ _ LADIES, call and see the corsets we are selling for 48c. Geo. L.

Of course if you find in the note that you give for the money in vary email print these words: (Princi- ' pal and interest payable in gold) it will 0\ be like the democratic platform—it fvon't nieau anything.

WESLEY, Dec. 18.—Don't forget to come out to the Christmas entertainment next Saturday evening. Sleighing is said to be good, and everybody seems to make good use of it hauling their hay and grain to town. Our shippers are having trouble to get cars to ship hay and grain. Warehouses are all filled up with grain, and hay dealers have to pile up their hay along the side track awaiting cars to ship it in. Our postofflce war has begun. Guy M. Butts and W. P. Giddings are the candidates. Both are confident of success and are around with their petitions securing signatures. Well, this is all right; to the victor belongs the spoils, but the boys will have a good time removing Col. Eddy, the present incumbent, as he is a stayer and always takes time by the forelock. He has within the past year fixed our postofflce up in city style by putting in new boxes and last of all he got himself a full set of_store teeth, so as to be sure that the postofflce teat would not slip away from him, so the boys will have to work if they oust him. Thos. Way of Britt was in our town Monday on business, W. A. Gillespie has sold a half Interest in his Blacksmith shop to L. W. Ash. Our school will close next Friday for a two-week vacation. Prof. Barslou and family will spend their vacation at Cedar Rapids. Quite a number of our town people are attending court at Algona this week.

Pearls are teaching a singing class here this week. Other abstractors have pooled. We're not in it. We have been in the business for 22 years and don't have to sell, but are here to stay.

Hudson departed last evening to enter upon a course of study preparatory to his new field of work. His many friends in this city and vicinity greatly regret his determination to change his life work, but join in wishing him success in his new undertaking, Few men have the courage to abandon a successful career to enter new and un- ;ried fields, and the influence must be strong to impel a man to venture such a change. For 10 years A. L. Hudson las been a prominent and successful practitioner at the bar in this city. His firm has been engaged In nearly ill of the important litigation of this vicinity, and his forensic ability has >een of the very highest order. His riends attribute his abandonment of his successful career to his work in Jnity church, and especially in the Jnity club, of which he has been a eader for seven years. He has had a growing feeling that the pulpit would afford him better opportunities for mmanitarian work, and all who enow him know that he is never so tiappy as when doing some kind act to thers. All predict a bright and useful future for him. Minneapolis. We keep It and sell It at $1.20 per sack Our best make of^flour 1.00 per sack graham (25 Ibs) .7.... 8 ..'
