Armstrong Journal: Algona has determined to be a back number no longer. A large public library,'electric lights and a $17,000 school building all at once is moving along fast. Now If they would call oat their militia company and shoot down a few hundred of their thieves, forgers and blue sky swindlers Algona and Kossuth county would bo a very nice place. West Bend's Canning Factory. Peter Habegar and the Journal editor have been at Vlnton to see what Is needed to get a canning factory ut West Bend. They found that farmers get $4 a ton for snapped sweet corn. Corn will yield three and one-half to four and one-half tons per acre dependent upon the character of tbe soil, variety of corn and cultivation given it. One ton of corn yields about 500 XJUDS. By planting different varieties of corn and two plantings of each kind tbe cunning season can be made to last three to five weeks, and tbe.machinery, buildings, and other equipments necessary to start a factory of 20,000 cans capacity will cost $7,000 to $8,000. This can be added to to increase the capacity .as circumstances might require without changing any of the machinery, but by simply adding more. Portland's Annual Gopher Hunt.

All these 'societies were, of course, represented with becoming gratitude at the obsequies, which in scrupulous ac oordance with the wishes of the deceased benefactress of the lucky greengrocer and the charitable and other institutions, were on a magnificent and, indeed, colossal scale, seeing that upward of 6,000 persons belonging to all classes of society followed her mortal remains to their last resting place. An Up Stairs Blacksmith Shop. As is well known, the Baldwin Locomotive works are located in the heart of the city of Philadelphia, where real estate is valuable. This condition of things leads to a great many details in the construction of the works which •would not be thought of under different circumstances, although, as very often happens after one has accommodated himself to circumstances^ii this way, the result is found to have no disadvantages, but, on the contrary, is found to be positively advantageous. One of the features of the Baldwin works, which is a blacksmith shop, steam hammers and all, is located on the second floor. This shop does what the Baldwin works call the light work. It does not do the frame forging or other heavy work, although the work done is, as already intimated, sufficiently heavy to- call for steam hammers. The entire shop contains 87 forges, served by two fans, which are driven by electric motors. A complete system of exhaust piping for carrying away the smoke is provided, which, to gether with the very liberal window and skylight area and elevated location, results in the cleanest and lightest shop, when the number of fires is con sidered, that we have ever seen.—Amor ican Machinist. Dickens and CraUcghank. The last time I saw Dickens was in 1868, at the funeral of William Makepeace Thackeray, to which I accompanied my father. Although December, it was as bright and sunny as a summer day. On getting out at the railway station we encountered George Cruikshank, with whom in early life Thackeray had studied etching and whose illustrations were a feature of Dickens' earlier works. Oruikshank was then in his seventieth year. He walked with us to Kensal Green cemetery, and the day being warm I carried bis overcoat. The great temperance artist was as quaint and odd in manner and appearance as any of his own caricatures. George, as his intimates called him, possessed histrionic tastes and used to appear as Macbeth and in other Shakespearean characters at Saddler's Wells. He was associated with Dickens, too, in the ainateurjperforinanees in connection with the promotion of the -Guild of Literature and Art. Oruikshank was also a volunteer officer, .and on the occasion of some review a comic bard wrote in allusion to his tomperauoe proclivities lines which I still recall : Fancy Cruikshank, if you please, On a horse with groggy knees I — Chambers' Journal. They Will Lay Scrambled "Here, call your dog into your own garden. If you don't keep him within bounds, I'll shoot him," yelled Loouey to his neighbor. "You seem to make a nice fuss about my dog getting into your yard," said the neighbor coolly, "Suppose you think it's a park?" "I'm keeping fowls, and I don't want your animal running 'em all over the place. You don't think I keep poultry to amuse your dog, do you?" roared Looney. "Call him in, d'ye hear?" "I reckon that dog is doing you a service by chasing your hens about, " re marked the other as he dragged the dog away. "Will save your wife a lot of trouble preparing the eggs for breakfast. You see now, after my dog has chased them about tbe yard, if they don't go and lay scrambled eggs. "—Strand Mag aziue. ft &Ue Term. A young man in the treasury depart- meut who took an examination recent ly for promotion ran up against a curi OUB question, but he was equal to the occasion, aud his ready reply will doubtless stand him. in good stead when hie average is made up. The question asked was this; "Hpw Jong do you expect to remain in, tjie pjyjl seryfoe?" , *'P»tii death dsius purt, » $as tbe reply* ^ whe4taljjngiy written, down, pp Qor, . , .
