The Ruth ven Free Press says i " Judge Carr ol Emmetsburg Is already being talked of as a possible candidate on the republican ticket for governor. It would bo hard to find a more worthy candidate." -4"f- Ptilo Alto Reporter: Should Judge Carr have an ambition to become tho chiel executive of tho groat state of Iowa there Is not a republican newspaper In this Judicial district, and .but few In the northwestern part of tho state, but would roll up tholr sleeves to assist him In his ambition. -++Tho Pocahontiis Record says: Judge Carr has been mentioned ns tho republican candidate for governor. If tho judge will allow his name to bo used ho will got tho undivided and hearty support of this section of tho state. Judge Carr is a very able man, and tho Fourteenth judicial district takes contiidornblo prtdo In having such a man on tho bench. Hut Judge Carr Is not a place hunter, and tho Uncord apprehends that his Mends will find it difficult to got his consent to allow the uso of his name by tho republicans of this section. Tho democrats will admit that Judge Carr would make a good governor. Tho Emuietsburg Democrat says: " The republican papers In this section of Iowa should glvo tho judge a good boost and plaee his capabilities and his political claims so prom inently before the republicans of the state that they will bo compelled to recognize him. Northwestern Iowa is the backbone of tho party in tho state, and if the members of tho party in this section do not demand their rights and compel the organization to acknowledge the superiority of their claims they need not be surprised if the recognition is denied them. Put the spurs to your horses, brethren, and gallop to the front" And the Courier joins in nnd says: "Judge Carr of Emmetsbvirg is mentioned as a possible candidate for governor on the republican ticket We do not think of any republican just now that we would rather see elevated to thut high office." THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES.- Yery seldom have wo seen a better number of any magtuino than that which the editor of the Atlantic Monthly puts before ns for the month of February. It has just enough of tho various kinds of articles to give it variety, and yet the traditions of the Atlantic are not violated in any one department. For fiction we have Mrs. Gather- wood's serial, " Old Kaskaskia," which is now fairly in the thick of its situations and plot; and Margaret Collier Graham's storv. " Ales. Randall's Conversion." Travel is represented by Mrs. Wicjrin' clever sketches, "Penelope's English"Experiences," and her sarcasms on English lodsrinqs and English ito-miied bills are specially amusing. Two more papers of the same class are Under the Far-west Greenwood Tr**" and " Tho English Cambridge in Winter." History and biography find a place in Parkman's "Feudal Chiefs of Acadia," and in Dr. George E. Ellis' article on "Count Kumford." Tho Stare R^iswr s.\vs: "The IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD.

LuVerne News: There was a fellow in town this week who was trying- to make our citizens believe that we need a billiard hall in this place. The license that our ordinance imposes upon such a luxury is SiXX) per year, and this evidently confirmed the fellow in the belief that the "tariff is a tax.'But nothing daunted, the man of the cue got up a petition praying the council to reduce the license to 850 per table, and sallied forth in search of signers. As a collector of autographs, he was not a howling success, "but, he succeeded in finding out just what the people of this town think of an enterprise of that color. His reception was about as enthusiastic as was tbat of she fellow who tried to start a package house here a couple of years since, and his stay is not likely io be more prolonged.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Dec. 15, 1892.—I left the port of New York in the steamer Island, on tho I2t,h of November and reached this port Dec. 1, from which dates you see thnt I spent 18 days on the ocean and have been hero 16 days. To avoid Hamburg I took a ship of the Danish line and sailed northeast. The first land we saw after leaving New York was a rocky isle near the Hebrides, which were next to come in sight. You see from the map that these islands are near tho north coast of Scotland. Here the British have a lighthouse and a signal station, back of a frightful pile of rocks standing out in tho ocean. Our ship signaled her condition, our weather on the voyage, etc., and it was telegraphed to New York and to the ship- owners in Copenhagen. We did not go nearer than tivo miles of the shore. It was night when > we passed through the strait between Scot- laud and Shetland island, but I could see the lighthouses on each shore. The water was as smooth as a river, but before daylight I felt the ship rocking, which told me that we were out in the North sea, making for the coast of Norway. It is about 300 miles across from Scotland to the coast of Norway, which we approached the morning of the 2Sth of November. There is a harbor and a town here among tho scraggy and barren rocks, called Christian- send. Our boat anchored in the harbor, blew a loud blast on the steam- whistle to wake up the doctor in the town, who must come aboard to inspect the health of the vessel before passengers or baggage could come ashore. But his medical dignity took his time and kept us four mortal hours waiting to see his flag appear at the prow of his little boat. In the meantime a great variety of boats, bearing fish, milk, fruits, cakes, candies and knickknacks for sale, were driving quite a trade with steerage passengers, who were hungry for something fresh to eat, when the police appeared among them in a boat and bawled away at the boat traders because they had dared to souch the sides of the ship before the doctor had come. But the policeman did. not command much respect, and less fear, as the boatmen laughed and Jold him he did not own the ocean. About dark the doctor came and soon after we left the port and sailed for the capital of Norway. There is probably no more beautiful or picturesque scenery in the world than that up. the bay, at the north end of which is situated the capital of Norway. In many places the bay is narrow and on eithe'r hand rise up hills above hills, covered with pine and birch trees, with now and then patches of cultivated land amid high rocks. These patches were yet green and the weather mild on the 28th of November. Christiansend old city, and has manv toric interest. We is a very places of his- spent one whole the >jp ' aay tnere and I improved the time vis- msg parks and other places of interest.

A - liMMti sight as we steam away for broftd ocean. The first few days All went well, and 1 was beginning to congratulat^ inyseil on & voyage free from seasickness, But after a Tittle we began to realize what it win 10 be "Booked in the Cra* die of the Deep." Soon the motion became double, rolling me from side to side, while the ship kicked up first one end and then the other. " 16 it tt storm?" I asked the captain. "Oh ho," he replied* "but there's been One, or there is one coining near here." I had not yet missed a meal, but now the double motion began to effect all the molecules of my body, and particularly my stomach, which now seemed a some* thing by Itself add making a vain effort to get into harmony with Its environments. To quiet the thing, I tumbled into my bunk and grasped the railing to keep it steady, but we tumbled all together from side to side, and now as if going to stand on my head, then on my feet, until my stomach lost its grip— need I say more—I was sea-sick. The storm increased—waves struck the'fih'ip as if a battery of guns had been discharged against it. A sailor was knocked down against some timber on the upper deck, his shoulder broken, his skull fractured, from which he died in three hours. He was buried in the sea next day in the worst of the storm. I was anxious to witness the burial, but was too sea-sick to venture out of my room. I assure you it was a sad thought to me thnt anyone must be buried in mid ocean, the loneliest, the dreariest place in the universe. This storm lasted almost four days, and one day the ship wont with the wind down toward Spain, because we could make no progress against the waves and wind. I crept to my port-hole window to get a sight of the mountin waves. It was a grand sight. We seemed to be in a deep gorge with a vast flood rushing down like a mountain on us. Then we would rise to look down into a great vortex of angry water. I had no fear, because we were in mid ocean, far from any rocks, and our officers were skillful sailors. Everything loose would slide and roll. Sometimes at the table those on chairs not fastened to 'the floor would slide clear back against the wall. The floor often stood inclined as much as the roof of my house; first one way, then the other. But the storm had an end, and I got well nnd had no regrets about my voyage by sea, after it was all over. I was anxious to see a whale, a shark or other wonders of the deep, but only sea gulls, and once some jumping fish called dolphins by the sailors, appeared. We sighted but two ships out on the ocean and they were distant. I was glad to get ashore, but for three or four nights I was yet rocking on the ocean in my dre'ams and slept uneasily. In the fifteen days I have been in Copenhagen, I have been invited to three dinners—responded to a toast given to welcome the " new American consul," which was pleasantly noticed in tho city newspapers. Have two invitations ahead, one to dine with the American minister, the other to spend Christmas with u wealthy citizen and his family. I have met at these dinners editors, doctors, legislators and officials, but as yet have not seen the king or any of the royal family, The Danes are fine looking, polite and hospitable people, but for me there is no country to be compared with America. But I cannot tell you everything in one letter. I send Christmas greetings to all my dear friends. ORDANDO H. BAKER. DISTEIBUTION Or SUPEBVISOBS. The LuVerne Xews Thinks There Oueht to Bo One "South ot the Court House." THE UPPER DBS MOINES' excuse for the monopolization of the members of the county board by the northern portion of the county is, to say the least, a poor one. It claims that inasmuch as it was Dr. Peters' place that was to be filled, a Ramsay man was entitled to the appointmemt, but there are a great many people down in the south end who fail to see it in that way, and if if our neighborly contemporary had been possessed of a desire to see such a rule established, it might have found an opportunity last fall to manifest its faith by works. It devolved upon the countv convention last fall to name a candidate for county supervisor to fill the vacancy caused by Mr, Lovell's removal from the county, and as Mr. Lovell was a LuVerne man, according to our contemporary, a LuVerne man for the Bu u v , , a <*.
