This machine has been tried and is pro- nouneett a perfect piece of mechanism, easily understood by the voter and insuring an absolutely secret ballot. 'When the voting is through with the 'machine indicates the vote cast for each candidate, so that no time is wasted in the count. The indicator is concealed while the voting is going oh, so that the judges have no means of knowing.hpw men vote nor how the vote stands. If such a machine can be made to record the will of the electors with even the accuracy of the present voting system, it would be an immense improvement. A great many mistakes are made every year traliau ballot law is pfotebly a fact that they all iofttly represent the denomination they claim to that it is unnecessary that a new church be raised up to bear the burden of responsibility as defenders of the faith.

Baker, of Eminetsbtifg, treasurer of the Farmer's Mutual Hail insurance company, of Iowa, was., in the county last week to adjust a loss for T. F. Johnson, of Eagle township. Mr. Johnson had a400-acrefield of flax and the hail storm passed over it diag- 'bnally, from' corner to C'ptner 4 inflicting a loss estimated'at. $224* which Mr. Baker paid.

The oldest is Christian Conrad, of Blackhawk county, who is 115 years old, and who was nine years of age at the beginning of Washington's administration. He was a voter, if a native of the United States, twenty-two years before the Monroe doctrine, now talked of as an ancient declaration of American policy, was heard of, and had presumably been privileged to vote for five presidents, including the one whom that doctrine made so famous. His age is already patriarchal, and if he lives five years longer he will be as old as Moses was when he sought his s,n-ave on the lonely mountain. Next to Mr. Conrad come John Williams, of Harrison county,and Benjamin Votaw, of Mahaska, who are each 114 years old. Another lowan is 107, two others are 10G and two are 105. The stories of .Turkish outrages in Armenia have become so common that they appear to make no impression compared to their enormity» but the country was shocked, on Saturday, by news that one of the incidents of a massacre of 800 persons at Kharput was the sacking and burning of eight houses of American missionaries. The latter escaped with theii lives to a place of safety. Another massacre of 4.000 Armenians is reported. It is es- Mr, Johnson's insurance in this company cost him $18.80.

He said: the the 'Nobody in America ever pretended that the Monrae doctrine is a proposition of international law. It is a declaration of policy and one which people in America have always sustained and in my opinion always will sustain aspt vital importance to the people of United (States. Its bearing upon subject matter of the Venezuelan dispute is very simple. Each country is entitled to what its predecessors held and no more, for no new rights have been acquired in the interval by either people. The question is, k What was the true boundary between the Dutch and Spanish possessions?' That question can be properly settled by arbitration. To refuse arbitration and to seize and hold by force disputed territory would open the doors, it England pursued such a course, to anj other European power that desired to acquire additional territory in Central or Southern America. It would fatally infringe on the Monroe doctrine. Ihe people of the United States could regard it as otherwise than ment fatal to them. "The Monroe doctrine, it should be remembered, is quite distinct from any question of reparation for injuries received by the subjects of foreign powers at the hands of the governments or people of Central or South American republics. With such questions, we have nothing to do,.but we cannot permit, under cover of a demand for reparation or in any other way, new territory to be acquired by any European power." If the government at Washington would only speak up the British pro gram of seizure of territory in South America by the arbitrary shifting - boundaries would come to an end. tiniated that the Kurds have killed upwards of 20,000 Armenians, burning their villages and carrying off the women. The Sultan, who was sufficiently influential to stave off a proper investigation of the outrages in the srart, is now believed to be powerless to put a stop to the fiendish slaughter. The powers have now collected a fleet in the neighborhood of Constantinople, and though England is inno hurry and the American government is doing little or nothing to protect its citizens, it looks as though something may sometime, be done. The Dubuauo Telegraph says that the traffic in American heiresses differs from the slave trade in Constantinople "only in the respect that there the Turks buy Cir- cassian women, while here American women pay European aristocrats to take them."

Tljo plan proposes using light and inexpensive corrugated ron cylinders, hung on a slight rail ported on poles from a cross whole system involving an expense of not more than fifteen hundred dollars a mile for construction. The rolling stock is equally simple and comparatively inexpensive. Continuous lines of cylinders, moving with no interval to speak of, would carry more grain in a day than a quadruple track railway.

He tells us that the assessable stock ot this company is tkirty-four million dollars but no assessment has been made this'year. The association never made such rapid growth in any other year as it has made in the present. In regard to mutual hail insurance the Farmers'Institute, in an article reviewing the years business, says: Among the most important facts developed by the experience of these associations is the great cheapness of Mutual Hail Insurance as compared with that offered by the Stock companies. The rates charged by Stock companies varies in amount from 35 to 50c. Iowa, briefly announcing the death of .MissCarrie Zellhofer 4 formerly a popular teacher in the Northern Iowa i Normal school. Miss Zellhofer attained a place in the esteem and love of the people of Algona and of the students that a stranger seldom finds. The following particulars are from the Grand Junction Headlight of the 14th: It becomes our sad duty to record the death of one of our most estimable young ladies, Miss Caroline Zellhofer, who died at the home of her mother, Mrs. Fredericka Zellhofer, on Saturday, Nov. 9, 1895, aged 29 years month and 10 days. Caroline M. Zellhofer was born at Port Washington, Wis., Sept., 29,1866. In May '72, she moved with her parents to Grand Junction, Iowa, where she lived until her death. In August 1888, she graduated from the Teachers' Course of the Indiana Normal School, at Valparaiso, Ind. In 1889 she was elected teacher of the beconci Primary department of the Grand Junction graded school, which position she occupied for two years, giving the best of satisfaction to both patrons and pupils. After closing her labor as teacher here she attended Highland Park College, at Pes Moines, graduating with high honors in elocution, physical culture and German in 1893. Her last work was performed as instructor in the normal school at Algona, Iowa, . . sfactory immaterial and construction. The only suggestion madeby the board was regarding a more perfect adjustment of the iron rods, and the builders promised'to attend to that. . The building of this bridge marks A NEW bEPAftTtTllE in the direction of more substantial building. The iron bridges cost more than wooden ones', but the higher cost is more than offset by the .tact that they do not have to be repaired every few years. The Blackford bridge is now found to be unsafe for heavy Weights and will have to be Repaired or replaced. It is a fair sample ot results under the old style ot bridge building.

He is already on the ground, but Mr. Brun- s6n has not severed his connection with the office. The change has been an understood thing for some time, and the reasons for it are not personal.

FOR A BETTER THISTLE LAW, Beacon: The Estherville Vindicator is surprised that the editor of the Beacon should have advised the enactment of a more stringent law tor the the extermination of the Russian thistle. The present law may be strong enough as far as it goes, but it does not the situation. When officers JLUC, experience of the Mutual company is that the actual cost is less than five cents an acre. On the basis of the total amount of losses paid by the mu- tuals, which is this year $85,000, it would have cost seven times that amount to get the same amount of protection on the same number ot acres m stock companies. In other words, by insuring their crops on the mutual plan the 15 000 members of the Hail Association have saved the difference between $85,000 and $595,000, a dear saving of over half a million dollars, about $40 to each member but owing to failing health she resigned the position in June., 1895. In early life she became a Christian, ^and several years ago united with the Methodist Episcopal church, and was a faithful, conscientious Christian until God called her to a happy home in the better land. ^ . Miss Carrie was a deligent student and thoroughly mastered every task she undertook. , It was her aim to acquire knowledge so she would be better prepared to accomplish good and battle with the obstacles of lite. Although of retiring disposition she won, by "her ladylike bearing and kindness ot heart, the esteem and love of all who 'knew her. She will be sadly missed, not only by her mother, brothers and sisters, who are now bowed in grief over the departure of a loving, faithful daughter and sister, but by the entire community who know that her mam ob- iect of life was to make the world better because God had placed her here.
