Good Coffee at the Opera House Call and see it and be convinced, We also handle THE BEST coffees in the market. Senator Mat, Parrbtt thinks that people dbti'.t say anything when they like what they find in their newspaper and agrees with Senator Funk that the endorsers of the Talmage sermons don't come to the front on that account. He says in his Waterloo Reporter; A large number of papers publish a Weekly sermon of Rev. Talmage. These sermons are supposed to be a special feature with large drawing powers. Recently the editor of THE UPPER DBS MOINES, at Algona, started an inquiry to find out how many of his subscribers were reading the sermons. A week after requesting information, he heard from one subscriber, and he said he had no use for the reverend gentleman's weekly discoursee. The " ninety-and- nine" have made no response. The Spirit Lake Beacon makes comment on the paucity of results, and says: " Local readers seldom commend in terms any special feature of a newspaper. They are not at all backward in coming forward with an ad verse criticism, but when the paper suits them ' ''-'- of Kossuth and Winhebagd counties Thei officef s make a raid abd get a ke of beer attd a bottle ol whiskey, an they are BO soobef out of sight than the same saloon is rdnnifig again ia full blast.

For good and fresh Butter call on fairly well'they keep "mum." We guess this is about correct and in line with most publishers' experience. Few, very few, readers ever think of expressing approval of what they fully endorse in their local paper. The general rule is to say nothing when they do approve and condemn openly when the editor goes counter to their views. With a somewhat lengthy experience we can remember more instances of being "combed down "for something said than of being "patted on the back" approvingly when we said what the reader endorses as the correct thing. We are. glad to accept the Beacon's explanation of the reasons. It leaves us in a happier frame of mind. Early Days in Calhoun County. Robert Allen writes to the Sheldon Mail about a trip west from Fort Dodge in 1870,and says: "We came to a slough called Hell slough. If it was not hell for man it surely was for horses and mules, for there were many dead car- caspes in it. We had one hundred feet of inch rope, but it was only about half long enough to give our team good footing to pull the wagon through it. We spent most of a day getting across it. The next slough we came to was called Purgatory slough and we had a hard time to get through it. The next was called Whiskey slough, but it was not so hard to cross as the last two were." Worse' Than Being Impeached. Here is the Burt Monitor's gentle roast of Mayor Hillis of Des Moines, who talked three hours on politics there last fall: Our people are more or less interested in 1 Mayor Hillis of Des Moines, who gave us such a good speech last fall that he repeated it three times. To keep up with the time and in line with the procession of morality, the affairs of the city government of Des Moines are being investigated, charges having been made against the Honorable. If they give him a chance to make a speech in defense he will leave them no time in 1895 for any-further business. We speak from experience. Gov. Carpenter Quits Stock Breeding Gov. Carpenter of Fort Dodge has traded his entire herd of beautiful short-horns for land and will probably breed no more for 'the market. The Messenger says he bred and sold shorthorns as he does everything else, carefully and conscientiously, and sent some of the handsomest and best cattle off his place ever seen in Iowa. He found it not easy, however, to educate the public up to the payment of prices which that class of stock ought to bring, and be has concluded to confine the place to common farm operations, Pound His ttoom on Fire. Addfson Fisher of Whittetfidfe is in Spencer visiting friends, and reports business good at his hotMe, Tuesday night, near midnight, he Was awakened by the alarm of fire, and found his rooia almost surrounded by the destroy" ing element.

Mr. Griges was the pioneer plscicuU turist of Hancock county and has two large ponds well stocked with carp. He Won't Say That Again. A Webster City man asked a delinquent debtor for money. The debtor got wrathy and said: "If you get the money before I do, you let'me know." The creditor promptly garnlsheed the man's wages, got the money before he did, and let him know, All He Needs is the Gold. West. Bend Journal: P. P. Cuplin attached C- P.

Wells killed a wolf up north of Armstrong, and the Journal says "he don't pretend to be a great wolf hunter either like two-thirds of the-population of Kossuth county." A Narrow Escape. Al.

Did You Ever Stop- . to consider that there is as much difference between cook stoves as between horses? to look at, one horse may appear to be just as good as another, but when put to the test you find he is lacking, in those points that are most desirable.
