Poyneer presided, a committee on credentials was appointed, seat drawing was 'attended to, and Adjournment followed, In the house Mr. Lane of Polk called to order and •Geo. W. Wykoff of Appanoose was chosen temporary speaker and H. L. "Wllcox temporary clerk. The house republican caucus chose its inferior officers. Mr. Mitchell of Adams -was made speaker, 'Chas.

Wilcox of Worth is .second assistant, Miss Olive Conger of Wayne is engrossing clerk, Miss Fannie Metzler of Polk is enrolling clerk, B. S. Findley is sergeant-at-arrns, and Miss Grace L. Martin assistant postmistress. The senate has not chosen its minor officers, which will be democrats. No work will be done until the various committees are appointed, which will take a week. v WA11N1NG PnOM UI-iAINE. It is reported officially that .Secretary Elaine has sent notes to the representatives of Spain, Austria-Hungary, Colombia, Hayti, Nicaragua, and Hon. duras that unless they make satisfactory reciprocity arrangements by the 16th of March the president will issue a proclamation re-instating full tariff duties on all articles now coming free '•from those countries into the United •;States. The Chicago Tribune figures •-.<up the amounts of these ^mports, and "the total is a considerable item in our .-'/foreign commerce. Coffee is the chief ••import from the southern countries, - \vhlle Austria-Hungary sends us 60,- ^i'00,000 pounds of beet sugar a year. • No warning was sent to Prance, as •tops are now in progress for a treaty. . Arrangements are also being made vlth Peru, Ecuador, and Mexico for reciprocal trade. The purpose of the president to reinstate the tariff against the countries which do not make treaties is to protect and favor those which do. It would be manifestly unfair to give the ••?j'.mo advantages in the American market to countries showing us favors, and refusing to do so. The result will be that those countries which have opened their markets to us will have all the • trade in the articles included in the reciprocity clause of the tariff, and that the countries which fail to get around t>y March 15 will hereafter sell nothing at all to us. an able lawyer, and sat in the legtelatnrt as an antl-prohlbitlonUt HI* choice will occasion some dissension, but in many respects is Wise. Tho contest in Iowa next year will necessarily be on national Issues, and if Mr. Cuminins can bring any strength to the party, well and good. It is possible that some less pronounced partisan on local matters could have been chosen more wisely.; but there cafe be no well-founded objection to the action taken, as the choice of ex-Congressman Struble, a pronounced prohibitionist, as permanent chairman clearly proves. The Des Moines river land cases have been decided, after fifteen years of litigation, against the settlers. The opinion of the United States supreme court will soon be published. ^ • The Courier, which has had so much to say about public building appropriations by republicans, is invited to notice that Bowman of Council Bluffs has introduced bills for buildings at Muscatlne, Iowa City, and Clinton, to cost $100,000 apiece. How about these) ^ Chas. Weare of Cedar^ Rapids was appointed consul down in Mexico and stayed a week, when the sun drove him out. Now ho Is appointed to Aix La Chappelle, where the sun is a little farther oft. The Carroll Herald says: "There will be five eclipses during the year of 1893; two of the sun, two of the moon, and one of the democratic party." ' The Des Moines News says Gov. Boles will not be on the national ticket. " No lowun need apply to the Hill-Qorman- Brlce regency." _ Does theEmmetsburg Democrat mean to be understood that by getting his son a good salary as page in congress that Walt. H. Butler has shown himself a good worker for-the people? The Cedar Rapids Republican wants the legislature to establish a fixed' tax for the educational institutions, and put a stop to lobbying in their behalf. Both Representatives Chase and Lane withdrew from the speakership contest in favor of W. O. Mitchell of Adams county. Mr. Mitchell enjoys the distinction of being the first speaker yet chosen who was born in Iowa. He went into the army at 16 years of age. _ Perry Engle, the independent senator from Newton, says he will not let the senate organize until one side or the other comes to him. He holds the balance of power. The Humboldt County Blade had some fine outs of business houses and residences lately. Humboldt is getting stylish if these are truthful pictures. TUB 3TACTS VS. A THEOUS". The Dubuque Telegraph, which is the most ably edited democratic paper in the state, advances a plausible proposition as follows: "Unless a duty enables the home producer to increase the price of his goods it is not protective, and a duty never does this When it is paid by the foreigner. It is impossible, then, that our tariff compels the foreigner to pay the tax while simultaneously giving encouragement to domestic producers. No tariff can do this. If it Bives protection it forces American con- t amors of imported goods to pay the duty, and if it forces the foreign producers to pay, it affords no protection." The very first clause, however, overlooks an important fact, and that is that a duty affords protection by shut. ting out foreign goods, although the price of American goods is not raised, The report of the secretary of the treasury shows that during the past year the importation of articles on the dutiable list has fallen off over $100,000,000, A repeated challenge has been sent out for the naming of an article of American make that has cost the con- eumer more under the new tariff than under the old, and it has not been met. The net result is that the American manufacturer has done $100,000,000 more business, at the old price, and to this he has been helped by the tariff .duties. His protection has come in an insured and enlarged market, while | !ae consumer has paid actually less for nearly everything to say nothing of the benefit he has derived from the general upbuilding of home institutions. This is not theory, but the logical deduction from the facts as shown by the treasurer's reports and the markets. Protection is possible—and very substantial protection at that—without any increase of prices at home whatever, and without any question as to who pays the tax on foreign goode that are im• tt Horted. The Telegraph's whole item belongs •to those half-true speculations which pass for argument on both sides on the B. F. Gue tells a plain truth in speaking of the World's Fair exhibit: "The people of Iowa have for a generation been paying generous tribute to the city of Chicago. Chicago has grown rich out of Iowa traffic; our millions of dollars worth of farm products have enriched its railroads, its grain buyers, its stock yards, and its grain and stock gamblers. Its palatial blocks, its great banks, its daily and agricultural papers, its merchants and its manufactures have flourished on Iowa business. No state in the union outside of Illinois has contributed so much to the wealth and growth as Iowa. In view of all this our people will never sanction increased taxation upon themselves to boom the Chicago exhibition of 1892-3, and no such sum as that looked for can be appropriated and paid without an increase of taxation." the officers of the several lodges in this district. Mr. Clarke- temarks that Medium lodge now has the finest outfit of lodge furniture that he has met with. One day at Webster City 145 loads were weighed over the city scales, as follows: One of potatoes, 18 of hogs, 18 of corn, 19 of hay, 39 of coal, 14 of cattle and 86 of oats.

He remained until Wednesday and was accompanied on his return by his father and sister Gay, who will spend the winter with him at Washington, Exel Voig, the champion nubbin pull- ler of the northwest, is in LuVerne again, having returned from a holiday visiting tour in Hardln county. Exel informs the News that while away he husked one hundred bushels of corn in seven hours and 80 minutes. Emmetsburg Democrat: The Odd Fellows held a public installation of officers at their new hall last evening. E. H. Clarke of Algona was the installing officer. A largo number of our citizens, who had been invited by members of the order, were present. Spirit Lake Beacon: Des Moines parties have purchased what is known as the Manley land, on the west shore of the West Okoboji lake, and they propose to make this a conspicuous point among the resorts next season. A club house will be built and other improvements will be added. Liverraoro Independent: W. A. Clark and family and effects left Dec. 80 for Lakefield, Minn,, where he owns 'a good farm, and hereafter will devote his energies to farming as prescribed by the agricultural bureau of the gopher state.... Our old Dave Royer, late of Irvington, has moved his goods and chattels to Pipestone' county, Mi tin., and will continue business as a professional farmer. Corwith Crescent. F. M. Daniels has sold his section of improved land in Kossuth county to Mr. Hinkloy of Odell, 111., for *26 per acre, making the neat sum of $16,640. This is the largest land deal that has been -closed in this section of Iowa for some time. Mr. Daniels still retains possession of the farm for one year from March 1,1892. Mr. Hinkley wiU make a stock farm out of it, and it is well adapted to that purpose. Frank will pay more strict attention to the hay business hereafter. Estherville Vindicator: Rev. Williams of Bancroft writes to a friend in Estherville that he had a very hard duty to perform when their little child died recently of diphtheria. The neighbors. were so afraid of catching the contagious disease that Mr. and Mrs. Williams were left entirely to themselves and he alone was obliged to prepare the child for burial, place the body in the coffin, screw down the cruel lit that shut out forever the sight of the precious one, and carry it out to the wagon that conveyed it to the cemetery^ ABOUT MISH FARffiM.

Carroll is noted for many things, but we never before knew that the town made boasts on the beauty of its citizens. It seems, however, that a Carroll boy has won the prize offered, in Omaha for the best looking photograph sent in. As six editors were unanimous in the decision Carroll undoubtedly won fairly. tariff question. But it is clearly wrong In assuming that manufacturers pan -gain no benefit from a tariff except as they increase the price of their goods. The history of the past year has demonstrated that to the satisfaction of everybody who has been interested enough to watch the workings of the new law. A. B. Cummins of Des Moiues has The Hampton Recorder has an illustrated issue showing the buildings and citizens of one of the best towns in Iowa. The Recorder has the best cuts we have lately seen in print, and the whole issue is a credit to the paper and to Hampton as well. The State Register says: "TheReg- ister is not in favor of closing the World's Fair on Sunday." Lafe Young says positively: "There will bo no repeal of prohibition, and not much excitement on that question." The Representative gives the figures for over $500,000 of improvements in Story county the past year. Chas. W. Budd of Des Moines and Thos.

The Wlnona and South-western—The New Road Through East and West —Whore is Our " Y?"The chance that the Winona& Southwestern, which built to Oaage last fall, is planning to cut to Sioux City and pass through Kossuth county is beginning to be more than probable. The following report in the Emmetsburg Reporter is enough to put Algona on inquiry as to the situation 1 The secretary of the Winona & Southwestern Railroad company writes Mayor Ormsby that they expect to build their line between the Cedar river and Sioux City during the present year. He also adds that the company has been securing local aid along the road already built and asks for some idea of how they would be treated if they should conclude to make Emmetsburtr a point on the line. FROM FOREST CITY TO ESTHERVILLE. 1 he rumors of a road across the north end of the county, surveying parties, etc., are largely idle talk. Still such items as the following sent to the State Register from Forest City are pointers: A surveying party have been in the field surveying northwest from here for about two months. They have completed their work between here and inompson, and are now working west from there toward Bancroft. People here think the B., C. R. & N. company is at the back of it. We also hear rumors that they have another party between Manly and this place at work HURT AT IRVINGTON. The Lu Verne News tells of a painful accident which occurred lost week: A brakeman, whose name we failed to learn, had his hand taken off by the drawbars while making a coupling at Irvington last Tuesday evenina-. He was given a stimulant and carried through to Eagle Grove to be cared for by the company's surgeon. He had previously lost some fingers from the other hand, and this last accident makes him a cripple indeed To the Editor: By request of the editor 1 am offering this little article to the public, not with the intention of dictating to our American farmers, but more perhaps to Illustrate the ways of farming in the old country, (in Denmark, where I was born, and where I was visiting last winter). I am not posted enough to carry out the details as they ought to he, nor would I ask for so much space, but I will only take the reader along (in his imagination) to Mr. J. Jenson's farm in the north part of Denmark, and he must see for himself. Said farm, like most of the farms in that country, is built in a square; the dwelling house lays on the south side, a couple of rods from the other buildings, the hog house, cow and fattening stalls on the east, the barn on the north, and the horse stable on the west side. The yard is all paved and swept at least once a week. The dwelling-house (as well as the other buildings) is a brick building, 30x80, a story and a half high, with basement under the whole house. The basement is arranged for butter and cheese making, besides being used as cellar for the main household. An artesian well 18 feet deep, located west of the horse barn, gives a sufficient supply of water, not only for the dairy and household, but also for the entire stock on the farm. Wouldn't it be a big thing for our Kossuth county farmers if they could get a flowing well inside of 20 feet? The first floor is divided into nine or ten rooms, with parlor, sitting room, dining room, office, etc. The upstairs is used partly to dry washing in, in the winter time, when the weather is damp and foggy, but also to store away seeds in, as oats, rye, barley < wheat, etc., so to be sure and have them in a dry place during winter. The roof is covered with slate, which makes it heavy but durable. From the dwelling, with Mr. Jensen as leader, we will go over to the hog house, where the feed troughs are made of common sewer pipes about 16 inches in diameter, cut into two pieces lengthwise, and put together with cement, one to the end of the other, making a solid trough about 50 feet long on each side the walk, and is in the center of the stables throughout. The floor is cemented and partitions built of brick and cement; a place is fixed about five or six inches above, the main floor for bedding (straw and leaves.) The hogs were washed at least once a week, if not too cold, and laid there dry and clean, a perfect contrast to their American relatives. Mr. Jensen takes great interest in explaning his ways of feeding, and gives a complete explanation for each department. He feeds nothing but ground food, leavings from the dairy, and, best of all, green clover, cut when heading out, pressed in bulks, and stored away in a hole dug in the ground, say eight or ten feet wide, four or five feet deep, length to suit amount stored away. A little straw is laid on top of it, and after that the dirt is shoveled back again, making a cover about a foot deep. In winter time this green food is given to the hogs in small quantities; they like it better than anything else, but it is not good to give too much at a time. With good care and regular feeding he can bring his hogs up to 300 pounds when eight or nine months old. A door opens into the milk cows department, where the cattle are tied two in each stall, heading to the outside wall, and about 70 in number. On each side in front of the cows are two troughs, one for water and another for food. The water is running all the time from the cow stable into the hog house, and from there out in a ditch which takes it away from the buildings down to a ravine, where a dam is fixed for the ducks. We will leave the ducks alone; let them enjoy the wet element and we will go back to the cow barn again. The best care is taken of the cows- good ventilation, and a continual temperature of 60 degrees is provided for by a ceiling, laid of common flooring with hay on top of it, and a double wall about nine feet high. The cattle can frost and ure the Young Copic Gets Away. Hancock Signal: A young man named Copic, who worked for J. S. MagorofMagor township, last Tuesday evening, while the family was away, stole about $45 in cash from the house, and a fine colt, saddle and bridle from the barn and decamped for parts unknown. Mr. Magor was in Corwith and Copic had taken Mrs. Magor with a team over to a-neighbor's. He drove the team back, left it hitched up, and lego. Eminetsburg Reporter: E. H. Clarke of Algona, D. D. G. M. of the Odd ieHowB.wesaguestatthe St. James on Tuesday. He was on his rounds installing , , an skipped out just at dark with the property stolen. The next day Mr. Magor came to Britt and sent out telegrams and cards and the same day sent! man to Renwick who found the horse in a livery barn, where Copic had left it to be cared for, but tye thief had flown. He had taken thp 'night train for the east, buying a ticket for Chicago, and by that time could have been in Chicago if he went jrtjat fur. Mr. Magor is more than keep it warm, and never was known in the stables. Mr Jensen has his books along, able to show his profit on each cow in a minute In the north end is the feed room, where the food is mixed and hauled around in a two-wheeled cart, both to the cows and fat cattle; they are fed regularly five times a day, and different food each time.. The cows get ground feed, carrots, beets, oil and rape-cakes besides hay. The milk is tested once a week. Prom the cows we go to the fat cattle. They stand like the milk cows, heading to the outside wall two in each stall, and mixed in all sizes from a year-old heifer to a three-year- old steer. These cattle are weighed once a week, their weight being put down with expenses of keeping them and if an animal fails to gain sufficient in weight it will be sold at once. A great advantage for the Danish farmer is that he at any time can find a good market for his stock, whether he sells by the piece or by the carload. They have regular market days, almost every day Tn the year, but at dif- l\ r ±tlfe" nc ^^ h ? alma nak) with a windmill above it on top of the roof, strong enough to pull the thresh* ing machine and to grind grain. At each end of the barn stands a chaff cutter with hOrse pOwer; a few othef machines are stored away in a cornef^and we th ink of nothing more. Before us at the west end of the barn we find a door into the horse stable, where each horse has its stall. The ceiling and walls are plastered, the walk in center paved, the partition posts are 6x6, with mouldings on; a big lantern hangs in the center of the stable. In the souths west corner we find the feed room} op* posite it is a room where the nian who takes care of the horses sleeps-Cand over the horses is a double-thick floor used for grain. One door more and we ente.r the wagon and machine department, where plows, harrows, and other farming implements are stored away during the winter, as well as wagons and buggies not in use. From there we are out. tn the yard again arid have been through all the buildings on the farm except the chicken house, which lies southeast of the dwelling house, near the dam, so that the ducks can occupy it too, and is also built of brick. Mr. Jensen asked us to go along to the house and get a glass of punch, and after that and a little rest we had yet to see the fields, but as it is in the win- tei* time there is but little to see. ^he farms in that country are not divided into sections and do not always lie in squares like 40, 80 and 160, as here. One farmer may have his land in five or six different places to make out 40 acres. Mr. Jensen's land is in one piece, but four times as long as it is wide. When he first bought the farm he built a board fence on both sides of his private road, which is about two miles long, but the fence did not last and needed repairs. Finally he got tired of it and took it down, got a man to split stone from five to six feet long and from nine to 12 inche's square. These stone he set 30 feet apart on each side of the road, bored two holes in each stone, one in the top and ene in the side nearest to the road. After that he got iron bolts with eyes and cast them into the holes with lead. He then bought at the strand auctions anchor chains enough to make out the four miles he wanted, and fastened them to each iron eye. Mr. Jensen said: "I know it was a big undertaking, but I took hold myself, helped to load and haul the stones; dig the holes and hang the chains. We made every day count, and now I have a fence that will last my lifetime without repair." The cattle never try to get over it, as there is a little ditch on each side of the road close up to the fence. As said before, there is not much to see in the fields in the winter time, all the plowing is done, the rye and wheat look oreen and good, the land is rolling like land in Kossuth county, and we have seen what is to be seen and will go right back. The yankee of it would be to ask: " How much money is there in' it? We may like the farm and ways of raising it, but at the same time wish to have a little for our trouble if it was ours." Well, we will ask him, and I expect answer as he gave to me. "I bought this farm 15 years ago for the sum of 150,000 krowns—$42,000; pai'd down 25,000 kr., and owed 125,000 kr. on it. > Since that time I have reduced my debt to 70,000 kr., have built a new dwelling house and repaired all the others buildings, got in the waterworks and built the windmill, besides many small improvements I can't. think of now; but I am the first man out in the morning and last to bed at night. When my hired hands are down working I have my books to look over. I always see for myself and have no foreman on the place, but take hold of the work as it comes along. When I travel I go on third class and leave the top buggy for my wife to ride in. It is only by economical activity that I have brought it up to what you have seen. •Ties are close but farming is yet pay- it worked right. ERNEST LAAGE. TOO MUCH JELLY ABOAED. Two Algonlans Defendants In a Case of Petty Larceny—How They AVere Trapped. Justice Taylor's court Friday was occupied with an interesting case of petty larceny in which "Doc." Leatherman and young Calkins, known as "Cork," figured as defendants, It seems that one evening last week one of the Patterson brothers found a couple of pails of jelly in the yard back of their store with Langdon & Hudson's mark on. They notified the owners, who notified Marshal Dailey. He told them to leave the jelly alone and then sat in a convenient place and watched. About 11 o clock Leatherman and Calkins came along and secured the jelly, and Dailey walked around so as to meet them. Leatherman set his bucket down but Calkins passed on to Heise's He Still flourishes In Hancock Connty land is the Possessor: of Wisdom in tafjfft Chnhks. Mote About the Corwith Cattle Mr. Oxley Says He is Indignant —Editor Bailey B shop and set his down, and both went on. The marshal day returned the jellv the purloiners! • Last week we published a batch of items showing that the mania for a terrible and unknown cattle disease had broken out afresh. And this week again our Hancock neighbors are full of it. This epidemic struck Emmetsbtirg last year in virulent form. Although Dr. Sayers told the people how to stop the cattle trouble they went. wild in spite of him, and untlj a United States veterinary finally endorsed him, and the stock papers had Koasuth and Emmet counties depopulated, of cows, the fever did not subside. Of course the one man who obeyed Dr. Sayers' injunction and watered his cattle at homo had no further trouble. Of course there proved to be no contagion in the disease. Of course all the cattle escaped ' which got good water. But the fever among the people ran its full, course, although we believe all survived, including the "boss doctor" who advanced the "strange and awful contagion theory. Now over in Corwith some cattle have died eating corn stalks. As in the bad- water cases the inflammation of the digestive organs has caused congestion of the brain, and the stock has gone crazy. This of itself might not prove mad-dog bite to the excited people, but the fact that there is a dog tax which goes to pay the owner of stock killed by dogs- would naturally make important any i items of evidence connecting the stock and the dogs. A shepherd dog ran with these cattle, and we believe has- been sacrificed to help carry out the mad-dog theory. Of-course there was- no evidence of hydrophobia. The disease is as common as colic and has occurred in every county in the state, less- frequently, we are informed, this year than ever before. There is no particular remedy known for it except to remove stock from the feed or water* which causes it. The nature of the germ which produces it is not known', and Prof. Niles of Ames is conducting investigatsons to try and discover it. But ignorance of the scientific nature- of the trouble has nothing to do with the trouble itself, which every stock raiser is acquainted with. There are probably not a dozen farmers in Iowa who don't know that corn smut, or the poison that is called that, will kill stock, and that the stock goes crazy before dying. But a Humboldt county ." hoss- doctor" has been found who probably has the same interest in the mad-dog- theory that-the owner of the stock .has. and who has changed his mind since his first examination. He advocates the hydrophobia theory, and Hancock county may be stuck for the cattle yet. Great is the " boss doctor," and wonderful are the epidemics of mania that break out among intelligent people. The Cattle Owner's Letter. Wm. Oxley writes to the Britt Trib^ une and says: " Will you allow space 1 this week to correct a false impression that has got in the papers—notably the Breeders' Gazette—from what Mr. Sayers, the "deputy .state veterinary surgeon, caused to appear in theCorwith Crescent, that our cattle and colts were dying from the poor feed and water. There is a neighbor farmer, a new comer, who feels indignant that stories calculated to hurt this part of the country should get into circulation when there is no truth in them. The cattle trouble is easily explained. The cattle were bitten by a shepherd dog that went with them in the corn stalks. "The yearling colt that died was stabled and Veterinary Clark of Humboldt made a post mortem examination and found every symptom of rabies. An account of his diagnosis of thV-case will be found in Jast week's CorwiW Crescent. Mr. Clark has written me' an exact account of how the animals ,;, acted with symptoms from the first!
