Num. xxvii, 55: Notwithstanding the land shall be divided by lot: according to the names of the tribes of their fathers they shall inherit it. 56. According to lot shall the possessions thereof be divided between many and few. Josh, xviii, 10: Aud Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the Lord: and there Joshua divided the land unto the children of Israel according to their division. Actsxiii, 19. And when he had destroyed seven nations in the land ot Canaan he divided their land to them by lot. Neh. xi, 12: Aud the rulers of the jieople dwelt at Jerusalem: the rest of the people also cast lots, to bring one of ten to dwell in Jerusalem the holy city, and nine parts to dwell in othei cities. 13. And the people blessed all the men, that willingly offered themselves to dwell at Jerusalem. Nah. iii, 10: Yet was she carried away, she went into captivity: hei young children also were dashed in pieces at the top of all the streets: and they cast lot for her honorable men and all her great men were bound in chains. Sam. x. 17. And Samuel called the people together unto the Lord to Miz- peh. IS. And said unto the children ol Israel, Thus saith the Lord God ol Israel, I brought up Israel out of Egypt, and delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians, aud out of the hand of all kingdoms, and of them that oppressed you, 19. And ye have this day rejected your God. who himself saved you ou of all your adversities and your tribulations; and ye have said unto him Nay. but set a king over us. Now therefore present yourselves before the Lord by your tribes and by your thou sands. 20. And when Samuel had caused all the tribes of Israel to come near, the tribe of Benjamin was taken. 21. And when he caused the tribe of Benjamin to come near by their f am ilies, the family of Matri was taken and Saul the son of Kish was taken and when they sought him he could not be found. 22. Therefore they inquired of the Lord further, if the man should ye come thither. And the Lord answered Behold, he hath hid himself among the stuff. 28. And they ran and fetched him thence: and when he stood among the people, he was higher than any of the people from his shoulders and upward 24. And Samuel said to all the peo pie, see ye him whom the Lord hath chosen, that there is none like hjm among all the people? And all the people shouted, arid said, God save the kin Ctiron. xxiy, 5:' Ttius were they divided by lot, one sort with another; foi the, gqvernqrs of the sanctuary, anc f cjvernors of the house of God, were oJ ie sons of Eleazer, and of the sons ot Jthamar, Mat. xxvii, 35: And they cruciflec him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots. Acts i, 24: And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, show which of these two thou hast chosen. 25. That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship, from which Judas by transgression ,1'ell, that he might go to his OWR place. 26. Anfl they gave t'ortU tlieir lots aud (lie lot fell upon Matthias; ana he twas numbered with the eleven apostles. J?rov. xviii, 18: The lot causeth pon- to cease, and parteth between mighty svi, §13- The Jot is cast into Jenkins as the candidate for railroad commissioner, btising.their demand upon the fact that the Colonel has railroad business on his hands already, as the Iowa passenger agent of the Penn- iylvania railroad company. It put hese editors in a very embarrassing position when Col. Jenkins was nom- uated, inasmuch as they had made .ueh serious objection to Gen. Drake in the ground that lie had built a rail- •oad in southern Iowa and given that ection its first opportunity to get its produce to market. The nomination f Jenkins "coopered" these editors, ind it is not to be wondered at that hey have made a mental calculation if the comparative magnitude of two ilternative evils suggested to their minds, namely, the withdrawal of heir editorials and the withdrawal of Jenkins. In view of the cheapness vith which an anti-monopoly record can be kept up from year to year by editors who have no political influence o make them useful to anybody or any- -hing, it must be extremely exasperat- ng to these brethern to have such a joinination made. It was especially exasperating to have it timed for the middle of a campaign they were inak- ng in behalf of the threatened liberties of the people and against tlie encroachments of the corporations. It was inexcusable, too, because Jenkins, while Lie might have liked the ofilce of rail- oad commissioner, did not cure a straw for a democratic nomination for my office whatever this year. It was no favor to Jenkins, and it was ruinous to the democratic anti-monopoly editors, and the latter are fully justified in making pointed inquiry why, if a state convention must be held this year and if somebody had to be nominated, some unprotected farmer might not have been placed upon the ticket. It must be confessed that while the convention was very skillfully handled whenever the interests of the office holders as such were concerned, it was botched badly when it came to the just ilaims of the anti-monopoly editors. And we may add here that we violate no confidence in saying that Bro. Hinchon feels this as badly, perhaps, as the general run of democratic ed- itors.He has been obliged to swallow the hard money plank dictated by Cleveland, and be recognizes the force of the arguments which are urged in behalf of that policy as wise and statesmanlike under the circumstances at present surrounding the nation, but. what emergency could make it necessary to swallow Jenkins? uously above all the other counties in the state, ami and these are Worth and Kossuth. Worth shows tip 42 bushels .0 the acre and Kossuth 40. A few counties iii Eastern Iowa, which rais- d fair corn last year raised fair oats too. Jackson county, which had $the best corn, had 35 bushels to the acre of oats, Jones county raised 37, and Johnson raised 39. Henry county averaged !8 bushels, and Lynn raised 31 bushels. Our neignbor counties run as follows: . J alo Alto 20, Emmet20, Buena Vista 19, ilntnboldt23, Wright 22, Hancock 53, Winnebago 30. It is proper to keep in mind that the amis in eastern Iowa which come the leafest to matching Kossuth county's irop averages is held at $60 to $100 per icre, while $35 is the top notch with is. There is not one of those counties that'ever produces any better average irop or that is in any respect iutrinsi- lally more valuable than is ours. And when we come to the present year there a no ground in the wide world that vill grow bigger oats, wheat or corn Jian our own. • We give a Bible reading this week for the particular benefit of Bro. Kichards, of the Spencer News, and Brothers Bennett and Mayne, of the Einmetsburg Reporter. It will silence their criticisms. The Sioux City Journal is sorry the democratic convention did not treat the liquor question as the republicans did, by silence. The Journal's idea seems to be that the majority of republican members will be against any further modification of the liquor law in the direction of license, and that the only hope for such legislation is in the republican minority joining hands with the democrats. The experience of the Journal with the democrats has been disappointing. The proverb is an old one that it is the last straw that breaks tho camel's back Now it is the short straw. The Col. Jenkins, of Dubiique, who wa nominated for railroad commissioner by the democratic state convention, is the general agent of the Pennsylvania rail road. The man who says that tho democrats of this state do not sympathize with the toiling millions must be a dull observer but the toiling millions they are most solicitous about are those of the railroad corporations. It is a fact that all crops are immense in Iowa this year. By actvial count there were HO cuckoos in the democratic state convention. C. E. Cohoon, of Emmetsburg, has called a populist senatorial convention foi this district to meet at Enunetsburg, August 37. SOME MOUTH-DEFYING COUNTIES. Which Show What Corn and Oats Were Raised in the Several Counties Last Year—Comparison to Kossuth's Advantage. The State Agricultural Society has published a inap of Iowa showing the average yield of corn in the severa' counties in 1894, and another showing the average yield of oats in that year According to this map Kossuth county last year produced 20 bushels of coin to the acre, which was the highest average in the north part of the state Only three other counties in the north part, Emmet, Franklin, and Worth make as good a showing, while the average Iowa county has $ discouraging' ly low average. Wright made out to harvest 13 bushels, Palo Alto 13, anc Clay, Lypn and Sioux raised each 12 bushels to the acre. There were a good many 6-bushel counties in central and southern Jowa. The eastern and south eastern counties make the best show ing, of corn for 1894, Jackson being credited with the highest average, bu.sb.els, while fcmr h$,Y$ §0, £p> have RESPECTFULLY REFERRED. A family down on McGregor street jas been trying to interest the editor of this paper in a case that they claim s new and unheard of. That is one eason why we hesitate to tackle it. There are so many old things yet to be lispdsed of. Perhaps some kind read- r would venture relief. The circumstances as related to us one hot day ast week were substantially these. These people have varied their more serious occupations this year, and besides gardening, dairying and keeping the children at home have raised a few .lozen chickens, the idea being that it would be such fun for the Itttle children to see the little chickens running around. The other day two hens "came off" together. The chickens were of the same breed and of the same age, and in personal appearance couldn't possibly be told apart, and the two old hens looked exactly alike. There were altogether twenty-two chickens, and the two hens were placed in coops but a few feet apart, because it would be so nice for the little children to see the little chickens playing together aud not making any trouble. But the trouble be^an right away. The chickens had been carried up to the house in a basket and so mixed up that there was no way of telling which chickens belonged to which hen. The chickens did not know, neither of the hens knew, and nobody in the family could find out. When they—the chickens—were emptied' on the ground they ran first to one mother hen and • then to another. The first hen to cluck got the lot. Then the other hen saw what had happened a.;d clucked louder and harder than the other, and the chickens all stampeded to her. It has been which and tother with the old hens and little chickens ever since, with neither hen able to calculate on her future state. People who sympathise with trouble in its varied aspect must see in this a peculiar case of difficulty. BRO. MAYNE AG'IN IT. Emmetsburg Reporter: The Algona Upper Des Moines makes a specious argument for gambling in politics. It is safe to say that no nominee will ever want it paraded as a fact that his nomination was settled by a game of chance. Gambling is demoralizing. It might possibly be democratic, but for a party with moral ideas it won't do, We're "agin it." HARVEY INGHAM DID IT. Milton Starr, of the Algona REPUBLICAN, arrived in Emmetsburg Wednesday evening, evidently for the pin-pore of helping to break the deadlock. It was broken before morning and Kossuth did it. It is hard to believe that Mr. Starr suggested the novel plan of doing so,— Emmetsburg Democrat. Yes, it is easier to believe that Harvey Ingham did it. His elaborate argument last week indicated that he had long pondered the matter in all its phases. _ ______^_ WARREN'S JOKE REACTED. Boone Republican: As a practical joker, Editor Warren, of the Algona Upper Des Moines, stands at the . head of the association, but he won't try it again for at least a year, When sending in his card notifying the local committee that he would be there accompanied by his wife, lie added that he must have a room with two beds, as his wife was a large fleshy woman weighing 300 pounds. The place to which Mi'. Warren had been assigned asked to be excused from entertaining them and. they were assigned to new quarters. Tho fact was that Mrs. Warren, who was one of the brightest women in attendance, weighed only about 120 pounds, apd when she heard of her husband's practical joke, declared the two bod arrangement should be carried out in their house for the next year. _ U you have never tiled our coffee, you don't know what you've missed.— bl'JETU ROUSE! firJlO.OW.WY- THE BOYS ARE IN CAMP. Second Brigade in Gamp at Waverly this Week for Soldier Practice. The Bum iLlement Has its Annual Row, But Algona Boys Acting Like Gentlemen.—Home Saturday. The second brigade, I. N.. G., comprising the first and fourth regiments, went into catnp at Waverly last Saturday. The fourth regiment is made up of the companies from Algona, 13oone, Hull, Mason City, Webster City, Sioux City, Perry, Hampton, Emmetsburg and Cherokee, and is commanded by Lieut. Col. William B. Humphrey, of Sioux City. Col. Chas. E. Foster commands the brigade,in the absence of Brigadier General James Kule. Company F, of Algona, is commanded by Capt. Melzar Haggard, and C. T. Chubb and A. E. Daugherty are the lieutenants. The citizens of Waverly have given the brigade a fine camping ground, fitted up with electric lights and all conveniences, and letters received here indicate that the time is being generally well spent. The bum element, however, which seems to be predominant in some of the companies, is making its usual record, and the town is largely responsible for results, if it is true that on Sunday night, when the annual outbreak occurred, there were seven saloonsruu- ning. A large number of the boys were up town, and two of them got into a light, but the Mayor happened to be standing by, and the way his cane cracked, first on one head and then on another, made the bystanders imagine that an Irishman had been let loose at a Donnybrook fair. The boys proceeded to pick him up bodily, and tried to break a window across the street with him. There were about 1,000 militia boys in the street and they made things lively until the camp was wired and the Colonel sent a company down and restored order. It was reported that two of the boys would get a dishonorable discharge. The Algona boys were not in the disturbance and are acting like gentlemen. Lieut. Chubb is acting Adjutant and is doing his company credit. Capt, Haggard was officer of the day yesterday. The company will come home Saturday afternoon. The arrangements for the week include brigade maneuvers and some of General Lincoln's plans will be carried out. A maneuver of the first rt giment against the fourth is on the program. A telegram received at 11 o'clock this morning from Walter Ward of the Co. F rifle team, says that our boys are "winning everything in sight" in the rifle contest which is taking place today.
