Ed, Bailey, whose scientific attainments are testified to by his numerous reflections on tuberculosis, adds to the rest of his discoveries a new breed of pigs in Hancock county, which he describes in the Brltt Tribune as follows: Jas. Manuel of Garfield township has a breed of hogs Imported direct from England last year, which he thinks* will revolutionize the pork market of Iowa"in a few years. The peculiarity of these swine is the turn of their noses. They turn up so that they can't see over them a'nd the hog sees the best when it walks backward. This enables you to drive one of them just where you want to, as the ordinary porker always goes the wrong way. They were bred in a very hilly country in England. Their noses were turned up so they could go up hill without getting gravel in them. Jim has to take them in when it rains, their nostrils standing perpendicular the water would run in and drown them. If feed gets short he will fit them out with little umbrellas attached to their head. One peculiarity of the' breed is they have to lie on their backs when they root and in ringing them he puts the ring in their under jaw. They can't eaji grass, their noses turn back so far they bite their own ears off when they attempt to graze. He feeds them from sprouts, letting the grain down from above, and they lie on their backs when they drink swill. Their noses did not turn up as much in England as they do here. The climate being dryer here the sun shone into their mouths and warped their' jaws. They have been gradually turning up more- and more for the past two years. It is supposed that the attitude of Gresharn and Cleveland on the tariff question, and English, French and German legislation on American pork have also added materially to elevating their noses. The square of the base of democratic foolishness added to the square of the N perpendicular of what they never attempted to do, formed a basis for extracting the "root" from almost everything American and even the hogs are affected by it. James will bring his disdainful porkers to the fair this fall. A Miniature Cyclone. The Reporter says a cyclone passed over the west part of Wesley .Friday about 5:30 o'clock. It first struck McPherson's slaughter house, lifting it about six feet and turning it over in the air about five times, when it was then torn to pieces. Coming south it struck R. P. Chapin's windmill and knocked it down, and crossing the road lifted the tops from a couple of hay stacks belonging to John Ward. We learn that it also destroyed the windmill on the Waite farm north of town. Kossuth's Rank In Butter Making. The leading 13 counties of Iowa rank as follows in butter shipments for 1894: _, . • Pounds. Clayton 3,329,660 Delaware 8,809,837 Jones 3,667,024 Chlokasaw 3,401,294 Fayette,..- 3,484,335 Buchanan 2,451,750 Dubuque 2,429,745 Bremer 2,281,953 Linn ;• 2,101,641 Butler 1,965,160 Blackhawk 1 887,610 Mitchell •..., 1,731 846 KOBSUth.. 1,567,699 This is a big gain in Kossuth's relative standing. Next year it should be higher still, ' Mephlatoplielea and the Sheriff. The Roberts-Martin company, which played Faust twice in Algona, was bagged by Sheriff Martin of Blue Earth, one day last week at Wells. He attached their outfit but they replevlned the goods and went on, The attachment was for a note against Mr. Roberts, held by a man in Lincoln, Neb. The company claimed that Roberts didn't own any part of the paraphernalia of the "Faust" outfit. Poetry Is Inadequate, Lafe Young says: The Fort Dodge Chronicle publishes the obituary pf a young mother, the wife of a minister, the young woman having been born in '61 and married May 80, J880. She was the mother pf eight children. The Jong pbituary ends with two verses of poetry, When a young wife passes away at the age pf 3fand leaves eight children, poetry doesn't fill the bill, There is room fop repentance somewhere, 4- Few Elmore Eye: our Elmore oitjzene'is about to be" the father of a new Jpiya town.

Prank Bicknell No Longer a Benedict-Other Matters. A quiet but happy wedding at Humboldt Saturday evening united two young people who have many friends in Algona, Frank W. Bicknell, city editor'of the State Register, and Miss Jessie VaUpel. Mr. Bicknell is the oldest son of A. D. Bicknell, at one time representative in the legislature from the district Kossuth was in, and a nephew of tho first proprietor of the Milwaukee depot hotel, now the Thorington. Ho has gone to the front rapidly in newspaper work, is an officer of the national young men's republican league, and has a bright future before him. Miss Vaupel was in Algona a week ago, coming from Chicago with Miss Cornie Ingham. She is a charming woman of talent and education, a fit helpmeet for a young man of ambitifin in the journalistic field. THE UPPER DES MOINES joins with all who know both in hearty well wishes. A long, happy and useful life is their abundant promise. Rev. Kennedy's Plan. Rev. Kennedy has adopted a novel scheme which promises results. He has given a dime to each member of the Sunday school to be returned Sept. 1, with whatever it has earned. One little fellow by investing his in pie plant has already secured a capital of 36 cents. When the money is all turned in it is to go towards furnishing a Sunday school room in thenewchurch the Metnodists are to build in the near future. Over at Sheldon he tried the plan and W. D. Boies', little boy earned $10 with his dime. He will give out in all 100 dimes. Church Dedication. The big Catholic church in Prairie is to be dedicated May 30. It is expected now that Bishop Hosraer of Green Bay, Wis,, will be present, and from 20 to 50 priests and other dignitaries. The church is the largest in the county and is all completed. It is a handsome structure and speaks for the liberal support of the neighboring people. Mr. Helfrig alone, we learn, has given $1,300 to it, the largest contribution eve* made for a church by one person in tho the county. New Bank Cashier. It is reported that Thos. Sherman was chosen cashier, of the Bancroft bank yesterday at a meeting of the dl rectors and that Cbas. Morehouse steps out. We have no explanation of the change, and it is not known whether Mr. Morehouse contemplates leaving Bancroft. Mr. Sherman will make a number one cashier, and is a genial and careful business man, THE UPPER DES MOINES congratulates him on his promotion. Ice. Leave your orders at E, J, Gilmore's, W. A.
