THE tPJPJEB MS MOlNESf ALGOtf A, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15, 1893. V 1 •-il WILL BE 1 LIVELY RACE. Cowboys to Run Horses from Chadron, Neb., to the World's Fair Buildings in Chicago. They Start at Sunrise on May 15—None Other than the Genuine Bucking Broncho to Be Used. One of the most exciting horse races eyer planned is reported in Bro. War- fob's Spearflsh Mail, from which we Clip: A great deal of interest is being manifested throughout the United States in the cowboy race to be run from Chadron to Nebraska's world's fair building at Chicago, which will leave Chadron at sunrise May 15. The president of the organization and other interested parties receive daily numerous letters from all parts of the United States, England, and Canada, making inquiries about the race. The organization will meet about March 20 to arrange the rules and route. Some few object to allowing those who are not titled " cowboys" to enter the race, but it is generally understood all who wiL-h to enter can. They must, however, ritlu the native western bron- cho, which knows of no other food than the plain western grass. Each rider will have one pony, which will be duly photographed, the color, brands, and all murks of the same to be registered before leaving. In order to win the purse one must reach the Nebraska world's fair building with the same pony he had on leaving Chadron. Each rider will register every twenty- four hours, and men will' be stationed along the route to prevent any fraudulent schemes. Those who wish to travel by rail, 100 or 200 miles every day or BO, will find themselves ruled out. as precaution to see that the race is fairly conducted will be taken. It is thought that the sensible ones will ride about thirty-five miles a day till within a distance of 100 miles of Chicago, whioh distance will likely be made in sixteen hours. Some of these ponies have been ridden a hundred miles in eleven hours. No route has been planned yet, although it is very likely that the riders will cross the Missouri river at Sioux City, and the Mississippi at or near Clinton, providing that there are no better inducements from other large cities. Sioux City is the only city that has bid for the crossing of the Missouri, although a number of letters have been received from inland towns through Iowa asking the cowboys to route their way. It is not likely that they will cross the river near Omaha unless Omaha is willing to do donate a reasonable sum to add to the purse already made up. The first prize is not to less than $1,000, the second $500, and the third $250. The management wish to have the first prize between $2,000 and $3,000, in order to get a large number to -take part. It is now anticipated that there will be at least 300 starters, and if sufficient money can be raised the management would like to make five prizes as follows: First, $2,000;, second, §1,000; third, $800; fourth, $500; fifth, $250. An entrance fee has not been decided on yet, but will probably be $5. The race iafto be the longest and most interesting race ever run in the United States. A more desirable spot could not have been chosen for the starting point. Chadron is located on a large plateau 8,300 feet above sea level, also in the heart of one of the greatest stock raising districts in the United States. WHAT PAN BE DONE. A Farm Ilecord That Is Worth Studying. Several years ago we published a report of the farm owned by Mrs. Dr. Hudson's brother, Geo. W. Hallock, in Suffolk county, N. Y,, which attracted attention everywhere. We have the report for 1892 of the same farm, which consists of G8 acres. The produce of last year was as follows: Ten-thousand quarts strawberries, 5,435 barrels early cabbage, 3,150 bushels early potatoes, 3,000 bushels onions from sets, 4,650 bushels late potatoes, 12,000 bushels of carrots, 8,000 bushels onions from seed, 20 bushels white beans, 175 barrels of Hubbard squash, 8 tons hay, (Hungarian), 100 bushels onion sets, 150 bushels Brussels sprouts, 40 pounds carrot seed, 150 pounds onion seed, 1,500 bushels corn in the oar, 275,000 cabbage plants to carry over. This is a most remarkable showing: of what can be done, as remarkable us any record of European garden farming. The fertilization is very expensive, but the returns are enormous. Now Try This. It will cost you nothing and will surely do you good if you have a cough, cold, or uny trouble with throat, chest or lungs. Dr. King's New Discovery for consumption, coughs, and colds is guaranteed to give relief or money will bo paid back. Sufferers from la grippe found it just the thing, and under its use had a speedy and perfect recovery. Try a sample bottle at our expense and learn for yourself just how good a thing it is.

Clifford, of New Castle, Wis-., was troubled with neuralgia and rheumatism, bis stomach was disordered, his liver wus affected to an alarming degree, appetite fell away, and he was terribly reduced in flush and strength. Three bottles of Electric Bitters cured him. Edward Shepherd, of Harrisburg, 111., had a running sore on his leg of eight years' standing. Used three bottles of Electric Bitters and seven boxes of Bucklon's Arnica Salve and his leg is sound and well. John Speaker, Catawba, O., had five large fever sores on his leg; doctors said he was incurable. Quo bottle Electric Bitters and one box Bucklen's Arnica Salve cured him, entirely. Sold by L. A. Sheetz. ^ Baptist District Convention. To the Editor: The Baptist Young People's union of the northwestern district are to enjoy a feast of fat things this week Thursday and Friday. Representatives from twenty-five churches, covering a territory of one hundred miles square, are to meot here, beginning at 2 p. ID. The chief speakers of the occasion, will be Dr. H. I. Stetson, president of Des Moines college; Rev. N. B. Rinden, our state missionary; Rev. F. N. Eldridge of Minneapolis; John H. Scott, a representative of the B. Y. P. U., from Chicago; RevJ'G. C. Smith of Mason City; Rev. I. N. Call of Webster City. We expect a rare treat, and will enjoy it all the more ourselves if Algonians generally will come and share the feast. W. H. DORWARD. Lin don nt Webster City. Webster City Tribune: Frank Llndon the celebrated actor, has not only sustained his great reputation here during Lhe past week, but has greatly increased his largo circle of admirers in this city. From the moment he appears on the stage his genius is apparent and every move made or word uttered fastens the Interest of the audience. His handsome daughter, EdnaEarlie, never fail's to captivate. Her charm of manner »nd felicity of expression have won for her an enviable reputation in the realm of the drama. To see her is to admire her. Guv, Lnrrnbee oti Snloons. Ex-Governor Larrabeo has given formal notice to the mayor and council of Clcrmont that the saloons licensed by the city must close March 20, or he will personally take the matter in hand and endeavor to see if there is any law in Iowa that will permit of the sanction of the traffic by town officials. The town is excited over the proclamation, is it is said the saloons have drawn a big trade to Clermont this winter, and enforcement will mean a serious blow to business interests.

Abraham Lincoln, When leaving his home at Springfield, 111., to bo inaugurated president of tha United States, made a farewell address to his old friends and neighbors in which he said, 'Neighbors, giro your boys a chauce." These words come with as much force today as they did thirty years ago. How give them this chancel 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! The country referred to lies along the Northern Pacific railway. Here you can find pretty much anything you want. In Minnesota, and in the Red 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 Moutana 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 be seen in the United States from the car windows is found. The wonderful bad lauds, 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 euro, 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. FBE, G. P. & T. A., St. Paul, Minn. DRUNKENNESS, OK THE LIQUOR HABIT, Cured ut Home in Ten Days by Adinlnis terlng Dr. Hiiinos' Golden Specific. It can bo given in a glass of beer, a cup of coffee or tea, or in food, without the knowledge of the patient. It is absolutely harmless, and will effect a permanent and speedy cure, whether the patient is a mod crate drinker or an alcoholic wreck. It has been given in thousands of cases, and in every instance a perfect cuee has followed. It never fails. The system once impregnated with the specific, it becomes an utter impossibility for the liquor appetite to exist. Cures guaranteed, A 48-page book of particulars free. Address the Golden Specific Co., 185 Kace street, Cincinnati, Ohio. M'he Manufacture of Wire, The manufacture of wire as now c..: ried out may be briefly and ccmcki-; stated, and consists in attenuating or r< • duction in section thin rods of the met-. under manipulation by drawing tl). cold through holes in a draw plate, u.-<.. ally made of hard steel. The wire i't nt er's bench is furnished with a horizon cylinder, driven by steam or other powc.: on which the wire is wound after Inning the draw plate. The holes in (!)• draw plate are arranged in decreasin; diameters, and a fine wire may return some twenty or thirty drawings ere it i.- reduced to the size desired. Much friction is generated in the pro cess, notwithstanding the use of lubricants, and "annealing" is necessary t.i counteract the brittleness produced ii the wire. Where great accuracy i« rt- quisite tho wire is drawn through rul.iw or other hard stones in the draw plate The speed of the drawing cylinder is in creased as the diameter of the wiru il : minishes. Much confusion has existed in regovn to the gauges of wires, no fewer tli.i. fifty-five different gauges being inf.- tioned by a recent writer, of which fori\ five were for measuring and determinini. the size of wire as made and sold withi the United Kingdom. The Whitwovt: gauge, introduced in 1857 by Sir Josopi Whitworth, and the Birmingham win gauge (B. W. G.) have been extensivt-1) employed. In 1884 an imperial standan wire gauge became a law, and cousti tntes the legal gauge of this country. It ranges from half an inch to oue-thou sandth of an inch in diameter,—Chum bers' Journal. Fertile Alaska. The nature of the whole land in Alaska can be roughly divided Jnto throe conditions: Snow and icefields bury tin coast range and choke up every hollow: to the immediate north the valleys are rocky and barren, but the vast interior beyond is richly clothed iu Inxui i- aht vegetation, Scientific authority-:) theoretically mapped out giant iwi linMs as spreading over the entire laud from the Fairweather and Mount St. EILw ranges north almost to the Valley of tin- Yukon. Colossal heights mantled in never melting snows tower thousands of fwr in the air, but within the shadow of these mighty uplands, in the sheltered hollows beneath, lie immense valleys carpeted in richest grasses and gracefully tinted with wild flowers. Here in the summer a genial clime is found, where strawberries and other wild fruits ripen in luxuriance, where there are 4J£ months of summer and 7J^ of winter. In June and July the sun is lost below the horizon only for a few hours, and the temperature, though chilly at night, has an average of 65 degs. in the daytime.—E. J. Ctlave in Century. Gllmore'8 Baton. When Gilmore was in Minneapolis during the exposition in 1888 the music of his band was transferred to a phonograph, and he afterward heard it. "That is wonderful, grandl" exclaimed Gilmore. "It's all there but my little stick and the tap tap of the alto horn's heel." The "little stick" was his baton. It was made of whitewood, and he always carried it when at the head of his band. "I have a dozen or more batons," said the popular leader one day, "but none of them compares with this little stick. I can tap on the edge of my music stand with this, and it will not spoil it. My other batons would be ruined, so I keep them locked up." During his continental tour he was presented with magnificiently decorated batons in every country. Some of them were diamond tipped, and all were gold trimmed.—New York Advertiser. UrlokeU as 1'ots. A woman in Kennebunk, Me., has made pets of five field crickets. Each lias a name and seems to know it when spoken. They are peculiarly sensitive to music, and are always chirping when the sound of a musical instrument is heard.—New York Tribune. RUBBER hip boots at Stough's. M. J. KENEFICK, M. D. Office over Jas.
