"experience*' were requested by the leotufet- to give the Reasons that prompted them to join the grange, tthieh they did< The answers showed that thefe Wove toatiy good reasons. A short synopsis of some of these reasons only will be attempted. Some joined on account of the social features of the order, and all who did so were well satisfied. They thought it Vefy pleasant to meet occasionally with people of theii 1 own avocation for social converse and an interchange of views, and thought a few hours spent in this manner once in two weeks served as a diversion and was very enjoyable. Others joined for the educational as well as social advantages of the order, and thought that all worthy farmers ought to belong to the grange as there was no place where they could meet and feel more free to discuss questions pertaining to their calling; and, in fact, all public questions which were before the people for solution, and thought that they were all the better qualified for intelligent citizenship on account of such meetings and such discussions. This was an age of organization, and nearly every class and calling had an organization to look after and protect their interests, and the farmer should and must have his or be left behind in the race for intelligent and pecuniary advancement. The organization of the banking fraternity enables them to place a large and influential lobby at the capitol. of pur country whenever any legislation is pending which is likely to be detrimental to their interests, or whenever they want some special legislation enacted for their especial benefit. This is also true of the iron interests, the coal interests, the railroad interests, the manufacture of oleomargarine; in fact, all the great interests of the country were organized and ready to do battle for their protection, or to gain an advantage whenever an opportunity presented itself. Hence they felt that it was necessary for the farming interest, the greatest of all, to organize and be watchful and ready to take prompt action whenever their interest required. Still others joined not alone for these reasons, but for pecuniary i-easons as well, and believing that farmers should co-operate together in buying and selling. While this last had not been as successful as they had hoped, yet they could point to many transactions where quite large savings had been made. And I might incidentally ^mention that the members of Algona Grange expect to save several hundred dollars from agents' prices by bulking their orders for fruit trees the coming spring and dealing direct with some responsible nurseryman, and thus being sure as well that the stock is true to name, which quite often, proves otherwise when buying of unknown agents. And the fact was also brought put that there was much less competition in trade previous to the organization of the grange than now, and that there were very few things that the farmer could buy without going through the regular channels of trade; and if he did buy direct ho paid the agent's commission anyway. Some meetings of the grange are farmers' institutes. We remember one very interesting meeting this fall. The question being oh the proper cultivation of corn such dry years as the past season, and the best tools to do the work with. We. think there were none present but got some good ideas. Last spring the writer was much interested in a discussion as to what fruits to plant in this trying climate and the proper care of them. At next to the last meeting the Hill bill now before congress was discussed and resolutions favoring its passage were adopted and ordered sent to members of congress. At some future meeting I think we shall discuss the president's plan of perfecting the "National Banking System." And as questions come before congress for their consideration, Algona Grange will investigate their merits and discuss them also. We think this a proper way for an intelligent people to do, and to let their members of congress know their views and wishes, It may be just possible that their member is looking through a cor- ppration lawyer's spectacles and has forgotten that he was sent there to serve the best interests of the whole country. And now, Mr. Editor, if this does not find the waste basket, you may hear from us again. SEO'Y. v QWWM miMv soas, Is |t RleUt for f»rtner» to Sell Wife Writes to The Upper Des Mo|nes, To the Editor: Feeling very tired the other dayi I went to lie down, and I bad hardly got settled for a rest until some one rapped at the kitchen door, My Httle foar'y'ear-old daughter went to gee what was wanted. There stood a map, and his first question was: "Bow wany bogs did y0 y lose?" A.*w H 1 4pq't kjjow; but I kiaow we Q,W ! Whereto they?" A,«r"I don't W "Where is the felba?" , A,— .?" A.T- be left the ' T£j Jitife girt ,tfee, it wayj t th6 house, between so-me hay stafiks on ene side 1 of the road fend tPees on the dthef. There the mefl left the teams, and going on past the hay Slacks aftd brawling thfwigh a wife fence, came abound back of the hay stacks and barn. I concluded some one had better appeaf oft the sdene, and throwing a shftwl ovef my shoulders, I stepped out where they cmild plainly see I wfts watching them. After holding & short consultation one" came' up fthefe I Was. His flfst wofds were ( "How many hogs aid you lose?*' I said, "Eightor ten." Then he wanted to know where they were. 1 told him that we took cat-e of them, "Oh, well," he says, " we will pick them up and pay you something for them." I told him I did not think he would, that if we had wagon loads of them we would not sell them. "Well," he says. " what did you do with them?" And I told him, "We burn them." "Oh, well," he says, "all right," and 'went back saying they Were all right for soap grease. When they were here the wagons appeared to be empty, but of course they must get them somewhere or they would not be in the Country for them. Now, in the first place, in our neighborhood the disease is considered so contagious that a mun who hauls hogs along the road that were taken from a yard where hogs have died, is exposing the hogs that are penned anywhere near the road, and it is supposed that some have lost their hogs in just that way. At least they know of no other way they got it. And if that is the case, why won't hogs that have died from the disease spread the same by being hauled through the country? In the second place, it is thought that if a man walks through a yard where hogs are sick, and afterwards visits a pen of healthy hogs, the healthy hogs are almost sure to have the cholera. If that is the case, we want no one on the premises that handles the creatures. For why should a man expose our stock to disease any more than to feed them poison? Another query is, are you sure none of your dead hogs are tried out for lard? I would not be surprised if all the beet were used in that way. Some of you will say, " We never buy lard." If yon do not buy it yourselves, how many of you do no* have friends that have to buy, and how many times during the year do you eaK with those friends, or at public houses where they do use lard? Then if you could be made to realize that the cooking was done with some of- your old dead hogs, how you would relish your dinner. But supposing tney do just use them for soap, are they fit for that? I think not. I have read of eases where it was supposed' that the cholera was started just by feeding the hogs the wash water wftere bnughtew sonp was used. If so, is there not danger for the wivesnand daughters who stand over the hot suds, inhaling the stenm. Suppose a disease, very li'ko the hog cholera, should get started among the people some time? Now I hope the farmers will think of this matter, and if there is not a way to keep dead 1 hog buyers out of the country, can't there be a way fixed to keep them out? Low Rates to Dos Moines.

This is a smaller mortality among the same number of people, we have no doubt, than if they had all staid at home and went regularly to bed, to say nothing of traveling by rail It proves again what we have often remarked— travel by American steamers under the system of inspection now enforced is the safest that could possibly be de* vised, TWrty*8ve of the 86 passengers above referred to lost their lives in one Disaster—the pinking of the tugboat James P, Nicol off Sandy Hook on a Sunday in June last, and General Do* mont states that this disaster was solely 4we to the fact that the tug was being navigated by a person wholly inexpe* rienped. It is further stated to the report that of the nearly iJ,000 boilers inspected accidents causing the loss, of life have occurred to bit 15 of then, defects in upward of 700 feeing detected and remj* died; also that et 19Q,g74 new life pre« servers e$astfti§4 only 64 were found deficient This statement shows that s» great care ia ttfeea i» fa$ juepeotion gf equjpruttntsto prevent disaster as to the mftohieery employed to IDA thej» and. the me« wha mac them., master's aua pilot's, tfe jmr were to Witk Mtitteft.

Systematic experiments ^vefe toade Decently tinder the Supervision of the Starangef Agtictilttrfal society, and the Jesuits were so satisfactory that in the .approaching cold seasott it is to be repeated on a larger scale. It appears that 80 sheep, each weighing about 100 ponads, Were fattened fo* a Week ot BO until they totted the scale at froiu US pounds to 133 pounds. They were theli shipped to London, Where they realized an average price, after deducting commission, of about $7.60, and as the total outlay had only been about $6.50 per head there was a net profit of nearly $1 oh .each animal Forty were also Sent over with the skins, hoofs and interior intact, but on these three was an average loss of 10 shillings per head, partly explained by the skins being damaged through bad packing. Nevertheless the Stavanger society has come to the conclusion that the business promises to be remunerative, and the English people have thus an additional guarantee of an adequate supply of mutton.
