Hoard of "Wisconsin was President, was a De Laval Cream Separator. This machine was then being introduced, and though its perfect operation left no doubt of its complete success, it was very little known among dairymen at that time, and the farmers examined its construc- • tipn and watched it in operation with • the curious interest attaching to a new invention of wonderful mechanism. Now there are probably few farmers 'who have not some knowledge of the De Laval Separator, and a great num- ' ber of them are in ;uae In creameries and private dairies in .KossUth' coun- [ ty. It has seemed to have'got to be the ^settled belief .that nothing that man's ngenuity is capable of. inventing will iver beat this little machine for practi- (al utility'or supersede it eld. in its own exhibit which the enterprise of essrs. Spurbeck and Lamberthas con- buted to the County Pair attractions .11 afford every Kossuth County far- era splendid opportunity, to see the Jaby Separator in actual operation. It pay any farmer to come from the otest parts of the county to watch _ ovements and to get a correct idea ,ts merits as a, financial speculation onnection with private dairying. • ' SOMETHING ABOUT IT. f he purpose of the Centrifugal Cream iarator is the immediate and com; e separation of the cream from the .-_-.-^._ "' . _1'v.i_ ^'".•i.Sj:-!"- it ydiif present way, and loss and injury to calves toy "scours.** Estimate as neatly as you can a 8aV* iflg 6f two4hifds of titne in ehtifningj the saving of time for handling, getting and skimming of milk; the saving of time ia washing and caring tot titen* ails; and particularly the drudgery of all this work to the overburdened housewife or daughter.

If so, lose no time in putting an axe to your so-called "cows." It is a thousand to one your figures will show it WOULD pay you. If so, what are you going to do about it? A De Laval "Baby" Cream Separator will cost you $76 to $200—according to size. The interest on the investment would be$5 to $15 a year. The machine would easily last a life time. Can you afford it? Can you afford to continue another month without it? You need accept no suggestion made until you have it confirmed, and that if need be by your own practical test of it. But you will make no mistake in accepting the facts as stated. Mr. Spurbeck will be on the ground ready to explain everything in connection with the little wonder. His firm handles all sizes of the-Separators and cfan supply them promptly. —j Jff * And Everything kept in a tfirstel&ss Lumber Yard. YOtfit PATRONAGE SOLICITED.

They are used and endorsed by every dairy authority and experiment station in the country. Every user confirms Ttbe claims made for them, and nine out Iv"''* pf ten would abandon dairying rather ~ "than go back to any other method.

A lighted lantern was hanging in the barn and a colt knocked against it and threw it down. In a moment the straw and bedding were all on fire. One of the young men grabbed up a quantity of the blazing stuff and carried it out, but the fire spread so rapidly that all efforts to quench it proved fruitless. There were six horses in the barn at the time and it was with great difficulty that they were removed. A large cattle barn stood close by and it proved to be a hard task to keep it from going up in smoke. Although the loss was considerable, Mr. Baker feels satisfied that it was not greater.

Especially Those Infected With Cholera — A Remedy Which Is Said to Knock the Disease Silly. 8. IT. Taft, one of the old settle!* of Humboldt county and Well knowft to many of our citizens, was in this county last week looking up the hog cholera contagion, and it will probably be no news to any f at-mer in this region"' that he was able to find many serious- cases of large herds being extermi nat- ed by it. Taft & Co. are entensive breeders of pure Poland Chinas and were exhibitors at the world's fair last year, where their hogs were exposed to the cholera. When brought home they transmitted the contagion to a herd of 300, nearly all of which fell victims, It was when it looked as though all of them were going that a medicine was sent to them which saved all that were then left. Mr. Taft was up here especially to bring this specific to the notice of our farmers and to try its effects upon Kossuth county hogs. Hogs are now such valuable property that of course he got instant attention. He left some of the medicine with Frank Benschoter, who had lest about 80 head, and he will be able to report a fair test of it merits. This is a matter of so much interest in dollars and cents, and of interest to so many, that we give the statement of Messrs. Tat't & Co. in regard to their own experience. They say, in their printed circular: Having received so many inquiries regarding our experience with the disease which struck our herd just before the date for our great two days' public sale', last November, we believe that we shall best serve the interests of,, swino breeders by making public answer to. the same. The disease was contracted by our exhibit at the world's fair, and by them disseminated through our herd before we were aware of its serious nature; The destruction it wrought was .very great, although we fought it by every means': a't command and tried many different remedies. We fed Poke • Eoot powders ' for. weeks, part of the time under the personal supervision of an expert sent by the company, but without benefit. When eyery remedy had failed and things were at their worst, Dr. ,G.;;W f . -Crow-sent us a box of^his Antiseptic , Hog remedy with the request that we'give it a trial. This we did with the result that it saved the balance of our herd. Not another hog was taken sick after two day's use of this remedy, and most of those then sick recovered, although some of them were so si ak as to require drenching for several days. The amount fed was a level table-spoon full of the powder twice a day to each hog of ordinary size: One ?7 box of the remedy saved and restored to health about 80 head, which was all that remained of our herd of over 300 head. Having found a remedy which did so much for us, we were anxious to bring a knowledge of it to other breeders, and with this object in view have perfected arrangements with Dr. Crow by which we are-enabled to furnish his remedy at the same price as if ordered directly from him. Mr. A. H, Button, of Lone Rock; Wis,, breeder of Poland Chinas, having seen in the papers notice of our trouble, wrote us that his hogs. were sick and asked what brought our herd out. We replied and he ordered a box of Dr. Crow's remedy. Below we give Mr. Button's letters, showing what -the remedy did for him. We also present the testimony of others who have used it. ' at Independence. His collapse was as complete as it Was fearfully suddeih On Monday be was seen about the postoffice and the streets as usual with nothing apparently ailing him, and ott Tuesday he was carted away to the asylum—all the direct result of cigarette smoking.

The habit of Representative Caruth of interpolating some pointed questidii and spoiling a climax when members are delivering a speech, as he did recently when he asked Mr. Quigg at what period in history and in what country gladiators were booted and spurred, had a strong illustration in the Fifty-first congress. Representative Dolliverpf Iowa Was in the peroration of an impassioned address, in which he was picturing the loyalty and devotion to American institutions of sundry immigrants. He was giving the house a thrilling and touching word-painting of the goodness of these poor immigrants, declaring they had turned their backs xipoa the monarch-ridden countries of Europe to greet the sun of liberty in their new home in America. "I have had them sitting by niv side* in' my office," he exclaimed, "while I was writing 'letters for them to their old friends across the sea and to their old homes, and they were shedding tears " At this point a strange voice from a- seat somewhere on the other side of the chamber chimed in. It was.Caruth's. "What were they crying about ?" he asked. There was an uproar of merriment all over the floor, and Mr. Dolliver's fine forensic effect was shattered by a shout of laughter at Caruth's impudent interjection.—Washington Post. TOM REED'S MAJORITY. ' Minneapolis Press: The returns:from Maine yesterday gave ex-Speaker Reed's majority for congress in the : First district, which includes Cumberr land and York counties, the most populous districts in the state, a majority of 10,000 votes. Mr f Reed was nominated for congress in the summer of • 1876 for the first time, the writer being a delegate to the convention which made that nomination. Mr. Reed was elected by less than 1,000 majority —his nomination having created much dissatisfaction in York county, which claimed the right to return the then member, who resided at Kitterly on >the News Hampshire line. - In 1878, when the great-wave of "greenbacfc- ism" rolled over the country,"Mr. Reed' was returned to congress by the small margin of 72 votes, over his popular opponent, General Anderson, the then- president of the Ogdensburg Railway company. During the first nine 'times that Mr. Reed was elected to congress, his majority rarely reached 1,200 votes, ' but last Monday, on the occasion or his tenth election, he received the -enormous majority of 10,000 votes. Read •' between the lines, this practically' unanimous return of Mr. Reed to con-« gross, means that he will lead the New. •" England delegates in the next national republican convention as~a candidate for president.
