TflE UPPER MOINE8! ALGON ^ IOWA WEDNESDAY APRIL 26. 1899, <&" You can cheat it for a time, but only for a time. The average life of a patent medicine is less than two years. They are pretty well advertised, some of them, but it isn't what is said of them, but what they are able to do which carries them through the years. ftax (which made Sarssparilla famous) has never recommended itself to do what it knew of itself it could not do. It has never been known a$ a cure-all in order to catch all. For half a century it has been, the one true, safe blood purifier, made in the best way out of the best ingredients. Thousands of families are using it where their fathers and grandfathers used it before, and its record is equaled by no Bother medicine. ami too j> you? IN CHINESE SCHOOL.

CO.—We talte pleasure in endorsing the HEgl, PU. ushur on your line of Morrison Plows; it scorns to be the one fea- ha^bee/addcd to a walking plow ^J-j^Jjtf^Wjj^ r. CO., V. P. Of all their studies, the almond-eyed youngster finds writing the most enjoyable, says, the Liverpool Chronicle. They use a small brush instead of a pen, and daub on the ink with a lavishness dear to the juvenile heart They write one letter over another till the page is black as a cooking stove, and the copybooks become so wet that it is necessary to hang them over the fence to dry. A comical sight, truly, and one which, proclaims to the passerby his proximity to a schoolbouse. It may be remarked that blotting payer is unknown in the flowery land. There are • no public schools in China, or, indeed, schoolhouses of any kind. But the boys and girls of the flowery land repair to tho house of their teacher to pursue their studies. They do not sit upon the floor, as is commonly supposed, for, although they have no school furniture such as la used in this country, they are provided with common chairs, upon which they sit while studying. During recitations they stand around their teacher. Long before reaching the schoolroom visitors may hear the pupils vociferously shouting their lessons and making a din which is, to say the least, confusion to one unaccustomed to their method of study. But when one realizes what an arduous task it is to learn one's A B C's in China, it ia no longer a matter of surprise that studying aloud is permitted. Think of committing to memory 214 elementary characters! (These characters take the place of our alphabet, for the Chinese language has no alphabet like ours.) That is what the Chinese boys and girls must do, and this is only the beginning of tho trouble, for these characters are grouped together to form words, of which there are more than 50,000 in the Mongolian language. Moreover, some of these words have forty different meanings, the (significance of a word varying with its inflection. Another peculiarity of the Chinese written language is that the beginning of the book corresponds to the end of one of ours, so that the pupil appears to us to begin at the end of the last line on the last page and to be reading backward. In studying arithmetic, Chinese pupils use the abacus, or counting apparatus, a frame strung with wires on which are gayly colored balls, such as we see in the primary schools in our country, and which we have copied from the Chinese. They do not study geography, for the reason that tho Chinese think there is no country besides their own that is of any importance. On their maps China is represented as occupying tho greater part of the earth; other countries being grouped around the middle kingdom—as the Chinese are accustomed to speak of their country—and made to appear as Insignicant as possible. Girls and boys dress exactly alike, except that the boys wear their hair in a pigtail, while the girls have a funny little wisp on the top of their heads. In some parts of China it is very cold, and as the houses are not warmed like ours in winter the children—and grown people, too—keep comfortable by putting on one dress over another till they are so bundled up they can scarcely move. Possibly this may seem a very uncomfortable way of keeping comfortable, but the Chinese little folks are not given to complaining. Now lilnsttngr Fnivder. Australia has produced cricketers and scullers, and frozen meat and Irish M. P.'s, and now it has produced a new explosive, the name whereof is kallenito. The advantages of the invention aro claimed to be numerous, and it is worthy of note that it has obtained the approval of the government of Victoria, and mining managers assert that after blasting with it men can go back to work in the faces more quickly than after using any other explosive. It contains no non-explosive material, whereas No. 1 dynamite contains 25 per cent, gelignite 4 per cent and blasting gelatine 2 per cent. The government chemist calculates that it possesses five or six times the strength of No. 1 dynamite. Moreover, it can be manufactured at a very low cost. Its absorbent material basis is composed of eucalyptus and ti-tree leaves, which are almost as common in Australia as blades of grass are in England. The remaining ingredients are, of cours, as yet a trade secret. A most successful experiment was carried out quite recently in Sydney. The minister for works and others who observed the experiment carried out from a safe distance, were all well impressed with the power of kallenite, which is claimed to be an entirely Australian composition. It is stated that when the government tests aro complete, if the new material is finally pronounced to be as excellent as it now bids fair to be, a manufactory for its production and export will be established iu Sydney.—London Mail.

Mllhurn, John Holmes, M> R. Dagger, E. L. Stetson, of Bueha Vi^ta county, Iowa, report as follows of^ the Canadian North-West as to its suitability for farming, and the ad van" tages it offers to the agricultural im- tnigrant from the United States; "We caiile here solely to look tip Improved farms and, if suitable, <•> De- lect such as pleased us best. We halro not visited the homestead districts at all, though we believe them to be very inviting. Our inquiries have been confined solely to the district around Hartney, Deloraine and towards tho Sourig River in Manitoba. Our impressions of all that region are in every v;ay satisfactory, and we havo decided to go back to Iowa at once, and, having disposed of our several interests there, to return to Manitoba in the month of March next, and, effecting our purchase of improved farms, which We find we can do at reasonable rates, Immediately begin farming. We are greatly rlcased with all that we have seen in that part of Western Canada. The soil we find to bo moro than equal to that of our own country for wheat-growing, and tho oilier conditions of climate, schools, markets, etc., arc all that wo could wish for. "To show what an energetic man can do we may mention that we found one such at Hartney who had rented a farm on shares, receiving two-think; of the returns as his share of tho crop. When he came to snll his own prcducc he found that his two-thirds, when converted into cash, was enough to buy the farm he rented out and out, which ho accordingly did, and is now its owner. It ia our intention to induce as many of our friends as possible, who arc practical farmers, to remove from Iowa to this country, whore wo believe there is a better for tho industrious man than ia now to bo found anywhere on this continent. We are well known in ouv part, of the state of Iowa, and we invite correspondence from its residents In all parts with regard to this region of Western Canada which wo havo visited, and to which we intend to return."
