C. M. RKEMAW, dim, Co. Con. Com. EDITORIAL COB.B.BSPONDBNOE. It was a relief, after four days of almost contiauous rain and gloom to change base for a time and look upon other scenes, and the relief was doubly gratifying wken, in the nftornoon of last Saturday, as we roached Austin, the sun broke through a rift in tho clouds and gave us another pleasant half day similar to the aftornoon of memorial day. Tho most surprising thing to me was tho fast that uftor wo left Calmar the evldouces of recent rains began to ceas*, and from Crsico to St. Paul there were no indications of an exoess of rain. All the small streams were normal, the ditches nlong the railroad contained no water, tho roads war* smooth and dry and the streets of all tho towns we passed through for 160 miles were dusty. The Holds bore no evidences of washos or overflow. I did not suppose there was a section of the northwest that had been so highly favored as that portion between Calmar and St. Paul seemed to be. But th* people through this section claim that tho rain lias been quite gonoral there as well as with us. I know that the soil has much to do with it, and that much of the eountry over this route Is sandy, but 1 did not suppose It was possible to mako the difference that Is dlseoveiablo. la fact I am sure that none of the section namod has had any such rainfall as nortlisa^t- ern Iowa. All crops look wsll, even in our section, except corn. Of course this crop does not show itself above ground anywher* yet. When we reached Farmlagton and received the evening papers mid saw that Blain* had resigned from the cabinet ther* was a mingled feeling of regret and exultation on the train. Those of as who believed that Blaine would not be a aandidate nnd that Harrison was entitled to a ronomlnation felt the chill of deatli (politically) creeping over us, whilo the original Blaine boomor was in his glory. Saturday night wai a wild Blain* night in Minneapolis, and it is needless to say that the night was spelled with a "K" prefixed, and that it was "plumed." I did not go to Minneapolis nor yet remain down town in St. Paul, but went dlreoliy to the pleasant home of Bert and Ella, out on the inter urban line, a couple of mile* from the heart cf the city. To 'peak truly I had not muoli heart for the news of the evening and wasted time to gather myself togethei, so to speak. Are we therefore so muoh opposed to Blaine P Not by any meaas. There has never been a time la the past twenty year* but we would rather see Blain* presideut than any living man, and the same it true to-day. Our only misgiving Is aa to hi* election ' If it shsill be made dear at the convention that Blaine ean get the votes in November we shall be just a* solid for him as wo aver were, although thus far from the outside, It does not seem hardly fair to President Harrison As I write, Sunday afternoon, with no knowledge of the situation except what 1 gather from the morning papers, I am not in a position to prophesy, iuffieo it to say that to • Harrison man it look« uneomfortahly Blainish at this time. After I villi Minneapolis, whioh will be this afternoon probably, will add a posUoript to this letter. • • • • Well, I have boon to tbo "seat of w»r" nnd mingled with tho seething, irurrahlng erowd, and yet I know no store Uiea before a* to what the outcome of it all will bo.

' ^|M'0r»t'fpnrf«((<»> djyhaa pa»*.l4 i« .mi tbqrj lanoibiag saw an tnf would give them a majority if they would materialize whan the vote is taken. 1 am forced to believe that there is so strong a feeling against the renomlaation of Harrison that the advisability of renominating him seems to be questionable. In fact it now Would c'oubllcss be belter if a third man were uomlaatod, and this Is not an impossibility. I have seen a large number of Iowa men at the convention, Waukon contributing a goodly numbor, and all the surrounding towns being represented, only a few of whom eouid get tickets of admission to tho convention, and none of thoji for more than one session, as was the case with "yours truly." But we have "seen the elephant" from th* oatelde and heard his roar, and It was a good siied roar whunover Blaise's name was mentioned. The eity was "too full for ulteranco" on Tuesday, apparently more so than Chicago was in 1884, the only convention that I over before had the "honerP" to attend (as an outaido delegate.) When the nomination is Anally made pandemonium will break loose, especially should Blaine secure it. I shall probably not be here to seo and hoar it, and la truth I don't much care to be. I have soon so many marching elubs and heard so many bauds and so many cries of "Blaine, Blaine, Jamos G. Blaine," that a tired feeling is coming over me and I Jong for a "quiet life." I have got so I don't care much who is nominated so it isu't Me! If it was necessary for me to "write a letter" declining to run I would be "ripe" for it tonight. • » • » • Tn« LATSST. — Tho convention is not permanently organized yet and there Is no probability of a ballot being reached before Saturday or Monday. The nomination is just as problematical as it was a woek ngo. I can givo no intelligent guess, even, on the result, but judge that tbo "dark horse" is liable to draw the pole, as the horse men would say We shall all know more about it next weak, in the mean timo, hurrah for the nominee! CONOUKOATIONALHT: "The minister who makes himself a specialist as a tompcranco reformer, or an anti-Bom »nist, or a champion of the laboring class*.*, or a crusader against tobacco, or a defender of tho Sabbath, practi cally ceases to be a minister of the gospel of Christ. He may be all these and so subordinate them to his message, which proclaims the redemption of men and of society through Christ, as not to narrow bis calling. He can not be anyone of theao exclusively and in truth remain a christian minister." This is just the kind of oriticlsm we have ofton felt like making but have forborne because w» should expsct it would be charged that it was none of our business, as we were on th* outside. But with so high authority as text we feel at liberty to say, at least fer the world's people, that it would be far batter if tho minister would leave specialties for specialists nnd only preach th* gospel to "a waiting congregation." As the main object is to reach the outside world it would soem that the way to do that is not to offend and drive it away by continually dwelling on some particular vice to which the world may bo addicted and that particular people especially. By doing this persistently as to all the ape clal vices the time comes when the congregation will consist solely of church members, and not very many of them. Wo are all "sinners," perhaps one not greater than another, hence more of th* outside would be attracted to church if our special vi«es mad* l*is prominent. were A FAMOUS PHBA8B.

The phrase movt often quoted f.om it 1st "That iroviirnment for the people, of the pocph and by the people shall not perlfili froi3 the earth." Porter 's Rhetorical ltonjer was published in 1831; in 182U it was in its fifty-second edition. From this edition I quote the following sehtoncc for an "oxorciso," entitled "Now Social Order In America/' and crodltod to ono Douglas: "The European oroigrant might believe himself aa o.is transported to a new world, governed by new laws and finds hlmuoli at once raised In the seule ol being—tho pauper Is main turned by his own labor, the hired laborer works on his own account, and tho tenant Is changed into a proprietor, while the depressed vassal of the old continent become* co-legislator and co- ruler In u government where aril power is from tho .people and in tho people and for tho people." The idea la not new, though this premature Douglas may hove been the first to put it Into this form. When Porter published thoBo soleotlons of prose ana poetry, Lincoln was Vi years of age, and be ginning to road law. It 1* possible . that he may have read this very piece in a school book whioh was widely circulated, and that this phrase may have •tuck In his memory, Itdoea not matter.

"Sell it for a small bottle," rcpllod the man with a good growth upon his head, and the stranger answered, "I'll go you." The barber began his work, and a lock of the man's hair was handed over to the sti anger, who put it in a little silver locket that bore a monogram. Then, when the work was finished tho two walked out together. The stranger was smiling contentedly, the club man grinned, tho barbur laughed, and tho customers gazed on in astonishment. "Wasn't Charley a dear, good follow to keep his promise and send me n lock of his hair?" said the pretty girl thfct night as she took tho daintiest sort of a locket from a little box. And all was still but for the beating of her faithful heart. A SHREWD FOOL. Perhapi Sandjr Wu Not so Simple mm Mm Wua gupjiosod to 11*. An old gentleman, a resident of New York city, and who In his early manhood visited Sir Walter Scott at Abbotsford, tells the following story ap- propoB of the Wizard of the North: We took a walk one evening just as the sun was setting, and the panting of a man near by attracted our attention. I turned in the direction of the sound and saw a ragged young man, with u face unmistakably idiotic and the shred of a woman's bonnoton his head in lieu of a hat. "Ah!" said Sir Walter gleefully, and he winked to me to note what followed; "here is my ain gude friend Sandy Mclntyro, the wise man. An whither are yo gnnglu', Sandy?" "I'm oot huntin' for goold aud siller, Sir Walter," said tho Idiot, with a horrible grimace. "Wool, weol, monl" exclaimed Sir Walter. "What do you want wl' goold and siller?" "I want to bo rioh, unco rich," ; piled the follow. "Well, I'll loll you whal Sandy." "Tell on. Sir Walter." "I'll gl' yo a thousand goold pounds if you'll let me kill you." "Na, na, Sir Walter," said the fool like a flash. "l'U compromise wl' ye. "Compromise?" "Yes; I'll let you half till joe for half tho money." WHltlng un Thfmiuflvna. The county farm is raising two calves that are being brought up to help themselves, and,as a consequence, require less care. They are kept In the barn, near a well, from which water is tulten by means of u common cistern pump. The calves have learned to operate the pump, and whenever they want u drink thoy pump it. Ono pumps while tho other puts his mouth under the spout aud drinks, and they turn about. Some times ono wants a drink alone. Ho then tuhes hold of tho plunger with his mouth, rulses It up rj\ high as he oau and puts his noso under the spout and gets his drink as it settles back.

In Constantinople tho Turkish women are eager to wear the costume of tho West, while American women sojourning there arc just as eager to wear tho Turkisli costume.
