" ' 2. The contest at Spencer over what ' 'is a bona fide newspaper subscriber is 1 still on. The News says that one of its competitors has a contract by which it •; furnished one firm 225 copies a year at 12J cents a copy, and wants these count- ed by the supervisors as bona fide year. Jy subscriptions. This is absurd on its • face and if it passes muster makes any showing of subscribers a premium on '' padding and bogus lists. The editors • have no interest in the Spencer contest, , or any other contest for that matter, ~ but every contest furnishes a most ur- .,- gent argument for coming together in -' some agreement about boua fide sub; • Bcribers. i ' 3. Some of the papers of the district, the Courier among them, are falling back to that old practice of publishing lists of subscribers who pay their subscription. This is very much after the order of cards of thanks, and absurd, however viewed. The Rolfe Reveille sums up its demerits very fairly: " A newspaper is a business institution , the same as a grocery or other store, They do not publish the names of those paying up and why should we? Not simply because we run a newspaper. Debts are supposed to be private property, and the public acknowledgement of their payment we deem out of place." Nothing could give away the claims - of a paper with 800 to 1,000 subscribers - equal to publishing the names of even 60 or 100 who have paid, and that is , about the extent of the publication, usually, 4. The card of thanks and obituary poet are hopeless cases. But furnish- t ing Chicago and New York weeklies at what they cost and advertising them free in the bargain has not become so , deep seated an abuse as to be wholly ineradicable, This year for the first 'THE UPPER DES MOINES has given the Inter Ocean's cut rate, and has furnished that valuable paper an advertisement free and paid all the postage <( fln(J exchange needed to increase its ,.circulation in Kossuth.

It is a live newspaper and deserves its good luck. Lon. F.

It might be added that the Rock Rapids Review stands away at the top among the weekly newspapers of this section. The Marshalltown Times-Republican, which is careful about its statements, says that a big Chicago-Iowa trunk line has of fered to transport all the plant and machinery of a big Iowa manufactory free of charge if that enterprise will go to Chicago. .''.'•• NEWS AND COMMENT. A great dealis said about the failure of newspapers to furnish moral and religious reading. THE UPPEU DES MOUSES has always had a curiosity to know whether the complaint is pharasaio or whether it represents a real, sentiment, and will propose a very simple test. It has for a year been publishing Talmage's sermons. Talmage is one of the high priced, popular pulpit orators of this country, and our limited acquaintance with his sermons leads us to believe that they are readable and interesting, Now in the past year how many subscribers of this paper have been reading these sermons regularly? How many have read them as carefully as they have the remainder of the paper? How many have read more than one? How many have read one? If our subscribers will each drop us a postal we will report, and settle this question of the public demand for religious and moral dissertations in newspapers. To make a fair beginning the entire office force of TUK UPPEH DES MOINES goes on record as not having read one sermon. . • -M- Tbe Kentucky blue blood is boiling again. Gov, Brown of that chivalrous conT- mohwealth secured a requisition from Gov, McKinley of Ohio for a negro who had escaped to that state, and who was accordingly arrested -and brought before Judge Buokwalter. The negro said he was willing to stand trial, but that he feared mob violence in Kentucky, and the judge thereupon made it a condition of returning him to Kentucky that (Jov, Brown should insure him a fair trial. The governor fumed and raged about the iusult to his state, but Judge Buokwalter is firm, He says; "I have sent two colored men back IN THIS flEIGflBOEHOOD, West Bend has decided on water works. 'A tank will be built. Miss Lulu Hunt of Burt is here this week taking -care of her sister, Mrs Grose, who has been quite sick, but is now recovering, says the Livermore Gazette. The Estherville Republican says "Attorney E. V. Swotting of Algona had business at court a day this week. He is looking well and reports business good in the paper city." Why is Algona the "paper" city?. . The Youth's Companion writes to Frank Calkins, the story writer of Spencer: " We congratulate you and ourselves on the best Indian story you have ever sent us, and shall be pleased to consider additions to the promising series you suggest." Forest City Summit: O. W. McMurray of Algona was in thecity this week. Mr. McMurray is the well-known contractor that built our school house, the Hotel Anderson and other buildings in and about town, He is now proprietor of the Thorington hotel in Algona. The smart man of the Fort Dodge Post says: "THE UPPER DES MOINES announces in its headlines that the • State University will feast Thursday evening.' The university will go to needless trouble and expense. Thursday evening does not require feasting." Does the Brltt Tribune refer to our Fred, of Wesley in this item: "F. A. Corey has been presented with a white grey hound from the New Home sewing machine company, and it is a fine one, being strictly thoroughbred and is valued at $100. This animal, 'like the New Home sewing machine,' stands at the head, being the fastest and lightest running in the world." Estherville Vindicator: Arrangements have been made at Algona for a grand banquet to be given by the old students of the state university. President Schaeffer will be with them and It is expected that a general good time will be. had. Probably no town of its size in the state can boast of more graduates of the state university than Algona can, It has at least eighteen or, twenty. Spencer News: The supervisor elected chairman of the board over in Kossuth county set up a bag (two bushel bag, we suppose) of good apples and a box of cigars over the event. This is given by way of a suggestion to the four members of our board who do not occupy that post of honor. The April meeting will be all right for the correction of any little irregularity or oversight which may have occurred when Chairman Blackmar was elected.

Monday morning the whole herd was put in stanchions, onch animal numbered, and then the tern' perature of each was taken with the best tested thermometers and recorded, This was done three or four times during the day and at 10 o'clock at night the tuberculin was injected with a syringe in front of the shoulder. Yesterday the temperature of each animal was taken every two hours. At 4 o'clock the final test was taken. The result of most importance was finding the Jersey bull with a perfectly normal temperature. He has been used by a great many breeders who will be interested in knowing that he shows not the slightest trace of the disease. One Short Horn heifer, owned by Louis Nelson and kept on the farm, was picked out early with a marked case. She will be shot and a post mortem held toda.y. Two other cows will have a second test today— one a grade Holstein and one a grade Jersey. They were the only ones In a herd of 60 that are suspected, and that not sufficiently to be certain. If they prove diseased by the second test they will be shot. Dr. Niles is still in own. _ IX NEW YOKK STATE. ^quested tQ publish 7li The most lately, one to Georgia and one to Kentucky.

The subject of tuberculosis or consumption in dairy cows has come into prominence lately in Iowa, and it is of great interest to all dairymen. As iossuth county is becoming more and more of a dairy county some facts ,bout the disease should be known. Dr. layers furnishes us a bulletin from the few-York'State Agricultural college, vhich he says is very complete, and rom which we glean as follows: lONSUMPTION A PREVALENT DISEASE. Tuberculosis is so extensively prevalent and proves such a veritable scourge throughout the civilized world that no disease is so deserving of close and ac- .curate study, or of the enforcement of effective measures for its suppression. If the 6,490 deaths from tuberculosis which occur every year in the city of New York could be brought together in an epidemic lasting but one week, no small pox, cholera nor yellow fever scare would approach the panic which would thus be created. ALL DOMESTIC ANIMALS HAVE IT. ' All domestic animals are subject to tuberculosis, but cattle suffer most. In infected breeding and dairy herds in New York, consisting largely of mature cows I have found a maximum of 98 per cent, and a minimum of 6 per cent. Again in healthy country districts I have found hundreds of cows in adjoining herds without a trace of tuberculosis among them. "' . IT is A CONTA'GIOUS DISEASE. In 1882 Dr. Koch announced his germ theory of consumption and settled the question of contagion. The bacillus carries the disease from one person or animal to another. THE GERM NOT EASILY KILLED. The bacillus tuberculosis will die in 20 minutes in a heat of 158 degrees. It lives indefinitely in water, is not killed by freezing, by putrefaotion.nor always by heavy salting, . . ACCESSORIES TO CONSUMPTION, The germ thrives best when conditions favor it. These are hereditary predisposition, close buildings and lack of ventilation, dark stables, insufficient or unwholesome, food, overtaxing, breeding too young, inbreeding and high breeding, ill health. SYMPTOMS IN CATTLE, Tuberculosis of the lungs, in the chronic oases which are by far the most common, may last for months and years unperceived,; in acute oases it may prove fatal in a month, In recent, slight, chronic cases there may be no other ground of suspicion than an occasional cough when the animal leaves the hot stable for the cold outer air, when it is suddenly raised in the stall, when it is run fpr a short distance when it drinks cold water.or eats dusty food, The cough js usually small, dry, wheezing, and may be repeated several times, When rwn or driven rapidly the animal proves short winded, Yet it may show as good spirits, as plear, full an eye, as smooth glossy a coat, as supple and mellow a skin, as good an appetite, as rich and abundant a flow of milk, and a? muoh propensity to fatten as jts healthy fellpws. thS BfftdMfcatiefi j»l tubW6ul6sls ffdnl ' " " tfce Sttppty flf fdo-d Nothing shbffi ol this" dB&"bi trtFsted td act iattsfac'tef-' il* ifl putting a dhtcik upefi the pfeseftt fear fulmortaitty frdffi this disease; No inspecliofl of dressed cafrcasses, fcqf of ffiilk, btittef aftd cheese will fiifnish 6, guarantee", We must gd to the hefdS and subject them fchimiil by animal to a critical test, and oflly iiccept the 1 products as sflfe when thcfe is no longer a shadow of suspicion remaining. PREVENTIVE MEASURES. If he will the stoekowner can extirpate this disease from his herd and thereafter" keep the herd pm-e from such contamination, The following are the main precautions necessary to this end: 1st, Board up the partitions of the stalls at the front so that no two cows can feed from the same manger nor lick each other, 2d, Iteep each animal strictly by its own stall and manger, 3d. When any animal is suspected don't let it use a drinking trough nor bucket in common with other animals. 4th. Avoid old milch cows and Unthrifty ones, or keep them secluded from the rest of the herd, 6th. The following conformation usually indicates a weakness of constitution and susceptibility to tuberculosis : Head narrow between the horns, sunken eyes, depth of cavity (temporal) back of the eyes, thin narrow ewe neck, chest small,:lacking in both breadth and detoth, hollow flank and tendency to pot belly, a general lack of muscle so that the limbs seem loosely attached to the body, in breeds that show a variety-of colors, animals of the lighter shades of brown and yellow, DR, KOCH'S GREAT DISCOVERY. . Tuberculin is the only sure test of the presence of tuberculosis. It consists in the concentrated, sterilized liquids in which the bacillus tuberculosis has been, grown. It contains no living bacillus; all germs have been killed by heating; but it does contain the chief poisons which are'produced in the tuberculous' body, and which bring about all the diseased processes in such body. When injected in a healthy animal no disturbance arises. But the faintest trace of the bacillus in the animal occasions a fever when tuberculin is injected. ENLABGBD THE GEOUNDS. Six Acres Added to the County Pair Grounds —The Annual MeetlUR— Financial Statement. There will be room enough at the next county fair. The agricultural meeting Monday afternoon settled that by buying the six acres lying north of the present grounds. It is a beautiful plat of ground, full of fine shade trees, and with graded streets on both sides. Mrs. L. B. Read gets $1,200. The society was $1,380 in debt eight years ago and has cut that to $300. It will not take eight years to pay for the new grounds if we can get two days without rain this fall.

It contains the truths Which eastern bankers need to know,' and the fact that they were presented by Congressman Dolliver gives assurance that they were put, in his own phrase, in 'palatable form.'" After introducing his topic Mr, Dolliver spoke as follows: Mr, Hendrix of New York, who combines most ably the functions of congressman and bank president in speaking at the Baltimore convention said with more wit than, adroitness^ that " men who never had! a discount in their lives and wouldn't be entitled to one, whose highest occur pation has been sitting on a barrel at a corner grocery store whittling a-piece of wood; and others who have followed the plow all day in the hot sun and tried to settle by the rule of thumb questions of political economy over which ;meh of-scientific attainments, have studied and grown gray, 'such men come or send their like to the halls, of congress, and.want to dictate the financial policy of the country." It is not for us who have inherited the traditions of the NewEngland town meeting to sneer at the interest' of the bumble millions of people in questions of political economy. : For better or for worse, that is our system of government, and so far as my observation enables me to .speak, if Brother Hendrix will .protect us from the counsel of scientific persons who have grown gray in the pursuit of moonbeams, and from the Napoleons of finance who care no more about the money question than a professional fard> dealer cares about the visible supply of ivory, we can safely take our chancas with the merchants, the working people and the farmers oi the United States. It is not enough that a bill for cur-v rency reform should be endorsed for a period of two weeks befpre being called in for repairs by the department of the treasury. ' ' It is not enough that a policy'shall' appear to be wise in a convention of bank presidents. It must also commend itself to a majority of bank customers, and it will be no less satisfactory if it looks right and reasonable to those unhappy people who never had a discount in their lives. The fact is that no financial project will prosper in a country like this that. is not founded on the average good sense and good conscience of the people of the United States. It may not meet the instant indorse- 1 ment of all, for in politics, as in other, things. Goethe's sagacious comment is true, that "Every thing great and wise in this world was at first in the minority; that is to say, in the soul, in the heart, the desire of pre-eminent per- 1 sons. They were obliged to render' those wise plans fii-st of all, popular and practicable," I will take the'liberty to say here that the ueople among w'hom I live will cordially co-operate with the people of other sections in the maintenance of a sound monetary policy, I know that in some quarters we are-" looked upon as likely to go off after all ' manner of heresy, • • • Sp far as the state of Iowa is concern e>d, if I may recur to the language of Congressman Hendrioks, the men . who fpllow the plow all daylong in'the ' hot:sun, thinking over questions of" political economy, have a record , fojr ' conservative prudence in these complex' national affairs from which many of' their critics could derive useful lessons, • They have never followed the banner' ' of fiat money, electing its most famous apostle tp the highest office, as, chusetts did, •, They have never demanded,, of government paper without a guaran-' tee of its value with which to geM tbe« ; national debt, as Qhjo did.,- v m " k * They, have never joined in the claw'- fpr an issue of $50 per capita 'in treas. /- ury notes,, as Pennsylvania Ia6t/y'«jjaj» "" »M* i * "",.
