BI.MNE, not being ablo to enter the spoakmg campaign, has given a let ter to the-press covering his views of tliu political situation. Tip letter places him in full accord with his party, nad his arguments aro as usual unan- iwerable. Mr. Blaine is never soured by defeat. L.I I I J I MUST BE POSTPONED. It is now almost certain that the world's fair will havo to bo postponed. The cholera scourge would so cripple it that it would bo an entira failure if it proccodnd. It is almost a certainty that wo shall havo a ruu of the plague in this country next season, and if wo do Chicago is suro to b» infected, which of courso would close the fair anyway. If it does not get a foothold horo by that time all the countries of Europe will bo so infected with it that thoy will havo to bo strictly quarantined, the exhibits disinfected, etc, so that in any evont tho fa'.r will be badly oripplcd. To go on and attempt to hold it Jnoxt summer would seem to invito failure. Tho time to get ready for so great au undertaking is short anyway, and it would seem to be tho part of wisdom to postpouo it a year in tho hope that tho scourgo will disappear. The maiu bonoiit of the undertaking is to have a world's fair in fact ai well as in name, and to havo exhibits and visitors from ovory corner of the globe. With present conditions this cannot bo doue, and hence postponement seoms absolutely necessary. MR. UPDEGRAFF. Tho McGregor News, of last week, has this to say of Thos. UpdegratF, republican candidate for congress. McGvegoi is Uis home, and has boon for many years, and tho people there know hi in well and have implicit oenfi- donct in him in any position in which ha may bo placed: ••Thomas Updegraft'ia no stranger to tha people of the 4th district, aud is personally acquainted with almost every resident of Clayton county. Ho is no late importation seeking oflico for reyenue purposes. He has lived among us for nearly forty years, for over thirty years lie has been idontilicd with thy business interests of northeastorn Iowa as farmer, as miller, as merchant. Ho has heou a oaretul, prudent, generous, public spli- ited, successful business man, seeking success always through legitimate means. Ho is an able lawyer, a safe counsellor, a wiso and discreet business man, and for many yoars has ranked among the first in tho state. His olionts havo been served with an ability, a tidolity, honesty and libor- ality, that has made and retained his clients his frionds. He is noted for his liberality, and many a poor man with a hard oaso and small purso has been served with the same painstaking tidolity, that ono from whom he expected a liberal fee would have received. As a public officer or reprosenutive he has served the people with marked ability and faithfulness. His career in Jhe 46th and 47th congress made him a reputation not only in his own district, »nd statu, but throughout tho nation of •s*hioh any pinn might woll bo proud. lie has been a careful, thoughtful student of history, especially to see how tinaucial and economical questions have nffeotetl the intortst* and well being vf the people of the west. Ilia sound judgment aud honesty of purpose aa well a» bis groat logal ability, make him n valuable representative of the people, and with hlut the bMuesi interests ot a client or a people are safe In his hands. Such is the nan whose service* are now offered to to* people of the. 4th district. Pending the nomination wu hare been IT will grieve Orover Cleveland and tho democrats generally to learn that .sixty tin plate factories in Wales are Closed, and 10,090 men thrown out of Work, most of whom will come to America in search of work. If these mills had ouly been closed in this country; If (heir building could bo prevented, tho party, including Mr. Cleveland would bo entiroljr happy.— Ex. ADDITIONAL LOCAL. PROMPT PLOWING. [Trlticum.] Fall plowing should not be dolayed a day after the oats have been cleared off, for each day elapsing bakes and hardens the ground aud rondors tbo plowing more difficult. No one can expect a good ci'op of wheat or rye from ill-plowed laud, that is, lumpy and not brokon to sufficient depth. The right condition of tho soil is a flue mellow layer, compactly sottlod, so that tho seed Is closely enveloped in fine, moist soil, and whatorcr lumps or clods there may bo are on tho surface, just vvhero the'y will do good. For in time, they melt down and top-dress the young plants, and moRnwbilo thoy are a protection against sweeping Winds, and they gatlior tho drifting snow and hold it for n protection for tho youug crop. And this protection is greater whon tho seed is drill sown than when broadcast. Moreover, early plowing insures the destruction of tho woods which always grow on tho stubble, and the weeds aro plowed ic when they aro tho most valtiablo for manuro. In this souso weeds aro a gift of nature, and like all thoso gifts, serviceable for our, use, when well used. It is in' the mis use of many things that thoy bocomo lulsuhiorous. OALT FEEDING. —Wo regret to learn that Jacob Leui is still quite poorly. VES Weather and Crops, MOINES, Sept. 3», 1892.—Tho past weak has bccn'unseosonably cool and «U'y, tile dally average temperaturo being about three degrees below normal, nnd (he rainfall generally deficient. Light frosts occurred on threo mornings in various localities in tho northern half of the stale, but no material damage resulted. Tho ripening of corn has been retarded, but it is doing fairly well. Answering a special inquiry, the majority of tho observers of this bureau report that with favor- ablo weather the groaler part of tho corn crop will be safo from frost about the 20th to 2fith of September. It is quite certain, however, that if a killing frost occurs bofore October 1st there will bo much more than tho usual amount of soft corn in this stato. Rain is needed in tho larger part of the stato to facilitate plowing, and for pasturage and potatoes. HOWAUD (Crcsco) --The most for- w ard corn needs 25 days. Oats yielding SO to 40 bushels, but light weight. Flax, 7 to 12 bushels. Barley, 30 bushels. Rain, 0.33. WINNISHEIK (Docorah)- -Oat« nearly an aycrago crop, but light weight. Barley full averago, but off color. One third of tho corn is now safo; one third will be in two weeks, with good weather, and ono third never will bo. No rain. (Rural Ufa.) On most farms it is considered essen tial to keep hogs, and especially on farms where dairying is a prominent featuro, does tho hog usually occupy the position of a gleaner to utilize the by-products. Tho ca'ves are usually considered a necessary ovil, nnd aro put out of the way in a summary man nor unless sold at a nominal price for shipment. To give up tho cow for six or eight wobks in order to make a good veal docs not pay in this section, sineo the calf will soldoin fetch as much as tho milk would bring in the regular way. and for a dairy cow to sucUlo her calf is ruinous to her after usefulness. Wo have succeeded admirably i raising calves on skim milk obtained by tha Cooley system of setting milk, but havo never tried to feed calves on separated milk. The calves soon learn to cat eorn and oats from which they get enough of fat to replaco what is taken for butter making. But after all wo confess to following the fashion of tho country in this regard, because there is no regular market for calves at any age which would warrant one in keeping all tho calves born. Thero is a limit to tho capacity of most farms to keep stock and when the farm is • locked with cows for dairy purposes different arrangements must bo made if ail the young stock is to bo kept. Wo confess that it seems wrong to destroy a calf as if it were a supernumerary kitten. But what can be dono? The markets aro glutted with beef of the character which these calves would produco, aud to tit thorn for market at an early age would call for skill in feeding which but fow aro masters of, C. L.

By tho way, Sunday closin u is not enforced, nnd tho crowds that go tlioro and pay a quarter to got iusid tho grounds and soo simply skeleton of buildings in various stages advancement are but an indication of what crowds would be thero on ploas ant Sundays if the grounds wore open ed when the fair was in full blast. Sunday would ho by far tho largest day of tho week, because a quarter of million rosidonts of Chicago would bo tlioro, to say nothing of outsiders. Wo wro Impressed with the fact that much has been done and much remains to be done before the great fair can bo open cd to tho public. But very few of Ih buildings are yet fully enclosed an almost nothing has beon dono towards putting tho grounds in shnpe. We don't bolieve it is possiblo to put tho grounds, buildings and exhibits in proper shapo by noxt May, and it looks to us as if a postponement would bo noc ussary even if thorn is no cholera. OtfR COTJNTY FAIR. DRIVERS ANT IN AFRICA. It Will be a Hummor—The Biggest and the Best. The great succoss of tho last two fairs given by tlio Allamakee County Agricultural Society is a sufficient guarantee that tho fair of 1892, upon ing Sopt. I2lh and continuing until the ICth on the sooioly's now grounds in Waukon will be equal if not superior to any fair ever held in northeastern Iowa. Yet it is proper to say in the way of amusemonts this fair will far oxeeed all others given by tho society Thero will be trotting, paoing and running racos overy day. Thero will be balloon asconsions, races and parachute loaps. A balloon has beon ongaged that will bo filled with gas and will ascend and commune with the clouds Music will bo discoursed by tho rogen- orated Waukon band and their now sot of solid silver instruments.

The moat terrible of insects aro tlio "driver" ants of West Africa. Thoy are so called hecauso they drive before them while on inarch all other living 1 creatures, no animal being able to withstand them. No benst, however formidable dares to cross their truck, and tliey will destroy iu a single nljrht all the pie;s and fowls on a farm. The huge iguana lizards fall victims to them, as do snahess and all oUu*r reptiles. It is said that they begin their attach on the snake by bltinjr its eyes and so blinding the prey, which, instead of running away, writhes helplessly in one spot. Natives of Africa assert that when the great python has crushed its captive in its folds it does not devour it at once, but makes a circuit of at least a mile iu diameter in order to sec whether au army of driver ants is on the march in the neighborhood, if so, it glides off and abandons its prey, which will soon bo eaten by the ants. If au army of these ants approaches a village the entire population is compelled to (Iy. Sometimes the peoplo may be obliged to take to the water in order to save themselves. The insects travel in the night and on cloudy days, because they are quickly killed by tho direct rays of the HUU. Should the sun come out while they arc making a journey, they construct a continuous arch over their path out of carthrag- ghitinated by a lluid excreted trora their mouths. In cloudy weather an arch for tho pjotcction of tho marching workers is constructed of the bodies of the larger soldier ants, whoso widely extended jaws, long legs and projecting nnteti nro, intertwining, form a sort of network. In case of an alarm the arch is Instantly broken and the insects which compose it join other soldiers on tho flanks of tho line, who seem to be acting as scouts, running about furiously in pursuit of tho enemy. The alarm over, the arch is renewed and tho column proceeds as before. AN IRISH-CHINAMAN. An Ethuolog -tcKt Novelty Who lutcrn .stff Gour ]j ;l:lnfl. Augusta now has several novelties In tho way of Chinamen. Living on tho corner of Mcintosh and Callahan ctreets is an Ii'ish-Chiuaman. Ho is decidedly the most intelligent Chinaman in tho city. He speaks and wrttes very good {luglish. A reporter called upou him recently, and, after much persuasion, succeeded in getting his history, llo has beon In Augusta only a short while, and is doing a grocery business nt the placo mentioned. 11c camo there from Beaufort, 9.

From Ireland ho came to America, ai» since has traveled all over the world, having been a steward in the- navy for several years, and a steward on a merchantman for fifteen years. After passing through many vicissitudes ha has taken up his abode in Augusta. Ho has boon married nineteen years and has two llttlo children. This lrish- Chinaman has a thorough Irish name, Charles James. "He, however,possesses all tbo suspicions ot a Chinaman, and was vory obstinate iu answering questions.

'J'ho Home Comfort so far as we havo used it has proven entirely satisfactory. It is all the salesman claimed fur it.
