Congressman Perkins Discusses the Lack of Confidence and Tells where a New, Supply May be Obtained. Everybody says that what we need is con fldence— more confidence, We have been short on confidence ever since Mr. Cleveland was elected. The shortage increased when it was known that along with him went a congress that was 'democratic in both branches. Every jump his team of wild horses made trampled on confidence. We had a panic in 1893, and have had mighty hard, times ever since — have got 'em yet. Mr. Cleveland thought the stoppage of silver purchases would let him out, and he called congress together in extraordinary session to execute his policy. But his congress wouldn't. The repeal of the purchasing clause of the. Sherman act was effected, finally, by republican votes. But republicans at the time told Mr. Cleveland that that would not mencl matters; told him that the trouble was that people lacked confidence in what the democratic party might do with the tariff. The election last 'fall encouraged confidence. It 'presented proof that the people repented in sack cloth and ashes the folly of 1892. As an evidence of good faith they improved the opportunity to make the house of representatives republican by a big majority. There is confidence now that the democratic party cannot legislate further mischief. • The democrats, did all they could to destroy Tom Eeed, and therefore there is C9nfidence that he will be speaker again. : ' . But confidence in the senate is not fully restored, and confidence in the administration remains at a heavy discount. , . But , there- is confidence that there 'complete "ch'ange'in March, 1897. The democrats always 'want ' a change. Those out of office find their' anxiety as great now as ever. The Marshalltown convention gave proof of this. . -,-• . . Iowa is all right. We have never lost confidence in Iowa. With the rest you know, we have a good deal of confidence that Iowa will supply the man to take Mr. Cleveland's place. At any rate we have unbounded confidence that Senator Allison would justify the choice before the, critical judgement of the whole country. An administration thac relies upon a periodical issue of bonds to'keep-the treasury afloat isn't in position to command the confidence of the American people. It is idle to expect confidence in the gold reserve or confidence in the currency so long as revenues are unequal to expenditures— so long as the treasury is systematically starved. A, surplus in the treasury and a surplus of republicans in congress, saved Mr. Cleveland's administration from disgrace in his first term. Mr. Cleveland himself would have more confidence if .he had some of that surplus at his disposal now. The people of this country are Americans, no matter where they came from; and they want a government for America. They neither want free trade in industrials nor in patriotism, We are the loyal friends of the Monroe doctrine. We have no confidence in the democratic policy of compelling our wage earners to compete with the cheapest labor in the markets of the world. We have more confidence in the markets of thp United States than we have in the markets of Europe or of Asia. We have no confidence in, the derxKb cratic policy of closing factories here and openjqg factories abroad. We Jiave no confidence in the ppljcy of reducing exports and jncreasii g imports. As a matter of fact, there is lack of confidence in the democratic .party along the. whole line, and it isn'jt the purpose to try and restore it- But, my friends, we have confidence m this great country, in its institutions and in its people, . , And we nave confidence m tbe re* ubjiean party, in its nationalism,, in ts patriotism, in its history and, in its Confluence wiU be fully restored when the republican party is fully restored. And I have ail confidence that Iowa will set a happy figure tWs year In the cause of the govfirpwnt and &ll tbjs great and James thoroughly measured the groiind at the bottom of this pit, and then peeled a potato cutting the paring narrow and long enough to go around the hole and covered it about two inches deep. Carefully he watched and hoed the vines and poured a bucket Of milk into the hole every day. As the potatoes started to set he scarified the sides of them and pushed them together until they grew into one large oiie,clear around the hole, the milk fed it and as the tuber grew down he pressed the bottom together until it grew solid so it would hold the milk. The balance of the propagation was easy^ ar< soon as he got it as large as he wanted it, he quit feeding it milk and the top began to grow together, and he now has M potato with a gravel pit inside of it. Of course it isn't as heavy as a solid one, but for size it beats anything ever seen. It is slightly oblong, 9 feet one way. but only 7 feet and 11 inches the other, and about 6 feet in diameter up and down, slight- ilattened where it grew together. It wasn't ripe in time for the fair, but is now, and if Bro. Mayne of the Ein- tnetsburg Reporter wants to see a "potato that is a potato," he can see it. or write'to Ja.'j. Manuel directing to Garner. Iowa. It is supposed that it will weigh somewhere between 900 and 1200 Ibs. If it was solid it would weigh at least double this amount. Anyone can satisfy themselves that this can be done by trying on a small scale; grow them around a gopher hole or badger hole at first. It is absolutely necessary to start with a hole in the center in order to let in the air, give it ventilation and hold the milk. It is supposed that this is the way that Adam and Eve first propagated the cocoanuts. Mr. Botsford reports another remarkable freak in connection with the large egg mentioned last week. Mrs. Botsford haviuc accidentally broken the egg, found it to contain within an ordinary sized egg, perfect in every respect, and with a hard shell. The space between the two shells was filled with the ordinary white of egg. —Estherville Vindicator. The' hen first put a shell on the yolk and then put the white outside of it? Well that's all right, those are what are called "cake hens." For some kinds of cake the white alone is used, for others the yolk, these hens lay them to order. "The year of the big ,eclipse the hens all laid;eggs : of this kind; except that the white was in the center. It is generally caused by grief.
