The fanner who tempers his enthusiasm OVet» 100 bush* 'die of oats to the act-e by suggesting that the soil may be exhausted, does iiOt have far to go, while the, man of elongated frame, who figures Out how much extra work his heart has to do in pumping blood up into his head, .and how much sooner he will die on that account, illustrates how wide a field lies open to the searcher. It does not require half the genius of Ingarsoll to chow to the thoughtless that nature is malevolent, and Kier Hardie, the English socialist who is visiting Chicago, la equal to proving that society is organized for the express purpose of imposing upon everybody. The evangel of unrest points out a little speck upon the horizon of human happiness no larger than a man's hand and with ten .sentences of clever clap-trap overclouds the whole sky of hope. '"Tis cheap and easy to destroy" says Emerson. "There is not a joyful boy or innocent girl boy ant with fine purposes of duty in all the street full of eager and rosy faces, but a cynic can chill and dishearten him with a single word." There is not a class of the human family which cannot be harrangued into unreasonable and destructive misery, its ambition dampened and earnest endeavor checked by a fairly smooth- tongued "kicker." Hardie exclaimed to his city laborers "you call this your native land," and then if "loud applause" may be relied upon he expatriated the whole audience by suggesting that they go out to pick an apple and find out whose land it is, go out to plant an acre and find out whose land it is, go out to wander about the fields and find out whose land it is. The argument was absurd. No land system ever devised under the sun would permit a man he addressed to go .out haphazard to pick fruit, plant acres, or occupy at will. As well come to a farmers' convention and say " go to the Pullman shops to make a car and see whose land this is," or to an editorial association and say " go to the Nevada mines to dig for gold nuggets and see whose land this is." And yet so fruitful is the human mind to the seeds of discontent, that men who would not come to Iowa to farm if tbe best quarter section in the state awaited each one of them, worked themselves into a frenzy over the usurpations of the land owners and resolved that social institutions as we have them, the fruit of centuries of toil and self-sacrifice and earnest and patriotic thought, institutions under which the hard conditions of barbarous life have been alleviated, labor dignified, and scope given to the finer and nobler traits of the race, are organized ion the sole purpose of robbing them of , their birthright. Some 2,000 years ago Horace put his feet beneath the table of bis rich friend, took a glass or two of old Falernian, and asked him; "Why is it, O Maecenas, thatiio one may be found, whatever lot chance or his own plans may have secured him, who lives contented, but that all praise the callings of , others? The soldier exclaims' O happy trader,' the merchant, his ships tossed about, says 'how preferable is the soldiers' life,' tbe lawyer beset by anxious clients praises tbe beauties of the .,,jrural scene, tbe farmer called within the city walls declares those alone jjappy who reside therein, and all together, for there are many classes, ,,unite to weary the loquacious Fabius." ' ^?he?e queries of tbe genial satirist - have come resounding down tbe corridors, of time, and we are still asking ,< them, unanswered. Why indeed is it : > that the far-off hills look green, that -. knowing tbe limitations of our own , Station io life, we are unable to pre; lor the rest of the human , that we "listen with credulity ctfftl9 Shto 6 useful flame; to redeem thtitight, bf firm action, that is fiOt easy, thaUahe work of ttl* tiftdftefii* Divine eien ifideeidl low eeeasidnaliy they fiash upon tie and dispel with one beany whiff of good sense the whole fcidui fabtlc of the soakers.

We look at him and see in him all the history of the world we are proud of. His spirit has inspired every great achievement of the race. His band has wrought every material miracle in the advancement from the rude devices of the cliff dwellers. He it is who has subdued mountains, bridged torrents, discovered continents, dug mines, invented machines, founded schools, and brought the Chicago laborer of 1895 to an estate kings and queens would have envied when Shakespeare and Milton wrote.

It says that nearly or quite half the admissions to thegrounds were not paid for. The total receipts were §35,000 and the total expenses $25,000. But the Register says that if favoritism had not prevailed the receipts would have been much larger. THE Tenth district republican league will meet at Fort Dodge next Wednesday at 10" o'clock.

Lafe Young suggests as to Abbie Gardner Sharpe and her proposal to become custodian of the Okoboji monument with a salary: " How would it do to make Abbie fish commissioner, boiler inspector for the lake region, and custodian of the monument all under one salary?" The Carroll Herald gets after Abbie in more ungallantfashion: " Abbie Gardner Sharpe has become pretty much, of a chestnut. We hope that Senator Funk will not take up her scheme to get a living off the state of Iowa as custodian of a monument, which should never have been built. We need a rest from Abbiegardnersharpe. * * * Here is the State Register talking about people getting old who approach 88 years: "In North western Iowa they have figured it out that Congressman Dolliver is in his 38th year. But he is just as interesting as he was at 28. He is one of the men who never grow old in the region of the heart—humor, poetry, sentiment, romance—he has all of these as well as the gift of oratory and the ability to see the weaknesses of the present administra- Dr. Frye tells them at Germania that bis father has corn on his farm south of Algona where the ears are out of reach. Mr. Frye is a good corn raiser. Emmetsburg Democrat: The Algona people require their nightwatch to give a §1,000 bond. They need a good one. The Emmetsburg people are fully convinced of this. Armstrong Journal: One of the candidates that was defeated for the nomination of county superintendent at the republican convention in Kossuth county has bolted the ticket. There is nothing like spunk and independence. The Emmetsburg Democrat says: Last Wednesday Wm. Bruns of Kossuth county purchased Joel Clark's farm of 160 acres in Independence township for 55,000. He will not take possession of it until spring. A Whittemore delegate tells the Burt Monitor that Whittemore was not represented in the late county convention, as was expected on the supervisor question. There is no doubt that J? O. Rawson or C. A. Erickson would have been nominated if the west side of the county had worked together. The Wesley Reporter says: "In talking with a friend the other day. Pat Kain, who has resided in Plum Creek township for the past 20 years, said, I'll stay in Plum Creek to vote just once more and then'take up my residence in Algona for the balance of my days." The Reporter adds: " Mr. Kain is one of Kossuth's most successful farmers, and. well deserves the pleasure of retirement." Bancroft Register: F. R. Anderson has moved his family to Algona, having accepted a position in the W. P. Jones implement house. Fred, is a rustler and a good business man.- The price of the Callanan lands in this county has been advanced about $2 per acre. They have about 10,000 or 11,000 acres of wild land in north Kossuth.... .Bancroft Post G. A. R., have completed arrangements for their annual "bean supper," Wednesday afternoon and evening, September 25, in Jefferson hall. Burt Monitor: The question of a new county jail will be up again this fall. It is very evident it is wanted badly, the matter coming up again so soon. This business of a cob pen for a jail is getting monotonous; this breaking out with soft-wood broom handles and wooden-handled case knives is getting to be a chestnut. Putting a scoundrel in such a place is considered only a joke, and is about the same as giving him his liberty. Its about time for a change. The biggest and best county of the state ought to have a good jail, but in the event of the proposition carrying, it is tb; be hoped .that the executive ability that bought those puter cages will at least profit by their expensive experience. ,; On the evening of Oct. 10, 1855* 1 reached Algona—the Algonfc that Was to be, for the town was not yet laid out. As the guest of A. A. Call we stopped with the family of Levi Max* well where he boarded. Of all the good people among the pioneers of Kossuth couaty there was no family more kind and hospitable than that of Levi Maxwell. His cabin was already full of boarders and how and where We all slept that night has been a mystery to me ever since. It was an odd thing too that we slept our first night on the spot where we have since lived for forty years. I had lived in Indiana where that part of it was a wilderness, settling there before the Indians were removed from the county. The early settlotrient of Indiana was made and the country developed in spite of the drawbacks and discouragements caused by the rough element found in most early settlements. Drunkenness, fighting, gambling, horse racing and counterfeiting were common. Among the good people were some of the very roughest characters then found in the west. When I came to Iowa I was prepared, or at least expected to go through the experiences of my boyhood days, and to find and deal with the rough element usually found in new settlements. Those'of you who came here with the same fears know how agreeably we were disappointed. But I did not then know it and you may judge of my surprise when I was told on the even" of the second day that we were to ._ ^.l_f_«_ * Wn*> m? rvVk fr n nrt VI*«1Q ..HjW^jrfgjw I 'tola" hifi thai petrified ft&s f Batumi Be bad it fwetty " afii that I fctfoBght, Ver- .risred his idea, ¥efy well.

"Well," he said, "I doti't kflow. Some folks tell me that I ought to study geography." He said: " 1 have preached 38 years and I don't know as I ever converted a single Wffiit fielsie Taker! fo* the PrfesfcrVdtitSh 6f Qld Pathtf f Aylo* Lbf soul. I dott't know as I ever said thing that anybody rehTetnbered an hour." I tried to cheer up the good man, and told him he could bot kflow what a good influence he was exerting, and that many years before I had heard him preach when I was a boy, and that I remembered a part of his sermon very well. He expressed the greatest pleasure and said if I had remembered perhaps some one else had too, and he should keep Ott preaching. I was glad that he did ttot ask me what part of his sermon I remembered so well. I will tell you the gist of it: ll He was a young man. Went up the Connecticut river one Sunday. Rested in a butternut grove. Stole some of the butternuts. On his way down the river his conscience smote him and he felt that he ought to take the butternuts back, but it was up stream, the current swift, and a _ hot day. So he went on down the river, but he determined he would not eat the butternuts, and did not, but sold them and bought a bible, aud thank God he has it yet." At Judge Call's he insisted against the judge's strong remonstrance, in chopping wood to pay his way and when he left he shooK hands and gave us a cordial invitation to his home at Polk City. Ho said: "Your oxen will be hungry, and I may not be there, but you will find hay and sheds for your oxen, and something in the house for yourselves, and it may save you a dollar or two, and it will come good too, for though you may have gold to sling about now, the time when you will need all you will can come get." have preaching that night, and was more surprised to learn that this was I He ga (^.

In thinking all these virtues o'er, we're glad Columbus sought this shore," * # * Here is another of Lafe Young's stories at Dolliver's expense; "When General Harrison was chosen president and Congressman Dplliver found out that he bad to name a lot of postmasters, be made out his list at, once, without waiting for hard fights to spring up. Then he made tbe list public. So also he proceeded when he decided to get married, He made bis engagement public, presumably to cut off and put an end to competition and in order that ether candidates might know their fate," # # # State Register; Tbe good towns are those which have good papers and good papers help to make good towns.

Says They are Plentiful iu tbe County and Should Be Attended to, ,• ; The following letter was received some days ago, but has been overlooked: WEBSTEB CITY, Sept 8,—Some weeks ago I saw hundreds of plants of the Russian thistle on the right of way of the B,, C., R. & N. railway north of my farm in your county. I was informed that they were thick all along that line between Germania and Swea city, and many were in the fields of farmers, The papers of your county ought to agitate and alarm the farmers there and stir the township officers to rigorous warfare on this pest. Next year it will be too late. Yours, J. C. COOK. The law provides that before Sept, 10 tbe land owners sball destroy these weeds, After Sept. 10 and before Sept. 15 tbe chairman of tbe board of township trustees shall have them out, and the cost shall be assessed to the land, Septt 15 is past, and bow many thistles have been cut either by land owners or township officials?

I do not know if he was the Marks that figured in Uncle Tom's Cabin, but he did figure in the Maxwell cabin. Presently he made his appearance, He was long past middle life and dressed in the most ordinary clothing, no starch about him. He lived at Polk City more than a hundred miles down the river. 'He drove a span of ponies to a light wagon, and in the wagon, he had a sack of corn, and a very long rope. There were no bridges in those days and the rope was to tie to the wagon to draw it over, after the preacher had swam himself and horses across. The corn was to feed the ponies, so that the settlers should not have them to feed. Such a man was Marks our first g reacher. His first utterances proved im to be certainly the most ignorant man who ever undertook to preach. I thought I had known one in Indiana who was the peer of any man living in that line, but he could not compare with Rev. Marks. His scripture lesson was read after this style: In t-h-o-s-e (spelling it out) those, days c-a-m-e came, John the B-a-pt-i-s-t Baptist p-r-e-a-c-h-i-n-g preaching, in the wil, wil, w-i-1-d-e-r-n-e-s-s wilderness, say, saying repent ye, for the k-i-n-g-d-o-m kingdom, of h-e-a-v-e-n heaven is at hand^JPhe reading of the hymn was after the same manner and the singing still more interesting. He asked some one to start a tune, and I have never quite forgiven the good singers present that they did not do it. He said: " Well I don't know as I can do it, but I'll try," and try he did and failed, and tried again and failed again. He then whistled a bar or two, and then sang a line or two of some very familiar hymn, finally dropping down on the hymn selected. Then followed the prayer. It was the most Unique one ever uttered anywhere. He had a fashion of praying directly for what he thought we ought to have, No beating about tbe bush. He Went straight to the mark. A few examples. Judge Call was building and talking Algona, The preacher said; " Lord God, please to put something in Judge Call's head besides building a steam saw mill, and a town." He also prayed earnestly that the Lord would bless the old bachelors, adding: "For Lord thou knowest their cabins are desolate enough without wife or children." He also put up a fervent petition for the young man with tbe wife and two little boys, who had come out from the big settlements. That meant me, and he only alluded to me in that way because be did not know my name, I felt to join heartily in his supplication, for if ever a man needed help and guidance, it was the man who had just came'out of tbe big settlements. Mrs, Maxwell was known as a religious woman. He earnestly plead with the Lord to bless Mrs, Maxwell, adding: '•For Lord tbou knowest she is tbe only Christian in all this country," And he made himself tbe Lord's agent too, for tbe next morning she found a dollar under bis plate, The sermon that followed was in line with tbe prayer, a jumble of g9od Jbcmghts and good advice, given in J&& grammar and murdered EnglisbllK-fter a few weeks Marks made anovner visit and again preached- It was R repetition of tbe same circus. In bis sermon be spoke of a body exbwmed tbat bad turned to stone, He said; f :And when the grave was opened tbe woman was tewad vgpba$m,," Tb,e broad " faces, abp«t .bini wade wigb,C He said pretty \ come to die. B come'to Iowa it has been root hog or But I thank God," and here he I cast his eyes reverently toward heaven, Uiwe've got the acorns by rooting." f Such was Marks our first preacher, who left his home to travel over a wilderness and ford swollen streams and bottomless sloughs to preach to us heathen, bringing his own feed and anxious to work for his board lest he should be a burden to the people he longed to serve. No pay or hope of reward except the hope of doing good. Many ministers have followed him, educated men, eloquent men, men who were faithful to their trust, but among them all no one has ever impressed me more favorably as an unselfish, devoted minister of Christ, and none whose memory I revere more than I do that of the Reverend Marks, our first preacher. *. J. E. BLACKFORD. THE PBEMIUM WHEAT YIELD. Kossutli Wins the Banner WitU 05 Bushels to tlio Acre—No Mistake About It. THE UPPER DES MOINES would hesitate to claim a wheat yield of 65 bushels to the acre on its own authority, but when it gets a bag of wheat from so well known and reliable a citizen as John A. Winkel with the record in black and white there is no getting out of it. Here is what Mr. Winkel says: " This whe_at was raise'd by John Peterson three miles southeast of Bancroft. It yielded 65 bushels per acre, so says Mr. Peterson and all his neighbors." It is fine wheat as the sample clearly shows, and it is a remarkable yield. We claim t on this showing that Kossuth is the champion wheat county of the state. POE THE EAdES. To Be Given Oct. 2 and 3, at the KossutU County Pair. WEDNESDAY, DOT, 8, .

The old settler's had att fntefestiisg meeting last Wednesday In Call's pafk, tfhere was an excellent turnout* a, platform" had been provided, the day was pleasant, and many entertaining reminisceaees were related, In con"* elusion steps were takea towards a, meeting next yea? which will be memorable in the history of the county, The executive committee were in* structed to secure the logs of the old Father Taylor cabin, and to arrange a location where a "raising" can be held, and all the county will be invited to come in and see a revival of one of the lost arts, Three of the cornel? men at the original raising, A. A. Call, Lewis H. Smith and David King, are still living, and will be secured to carry up the corners, and others will be ready to put on an old- time shake roof, and Kossuth will then preserve this most interesting memorial of pioneer times as a lasting rallying place for the old settlers. No cabin erected in early years has more associations that will be cherished than this, and no fitter reminder of early times could be secured. The election of officers for the coming year resulted in the choice of C. D. Pettibone for president, Edwin Blackford for secretary, and John Reed for treasurer. The executive committee consists of one from each township and is as follows: J. E. Blackford, Algona; L. Witham, Cresco; Jno. Ward, Greenwood; Mrs. H. P. Hatch, Whittemorev Mrs. Schriver, Union; M. Hays, Garfield; G. S. McPherson, Wesley; D. Rice, Plum Creek; Dr. Armstrong, Irvington; N. 0. Taylor, Lotts Creek; H. Norton,' Burt; Frank Pierce, Lincoln; A. W.< Blanchard, Portland; M. Stephens; Ledyard; C. O. Fish, Seneca; M. Weisbrood, Fenton; N. Collar, Ramsay; Mrs. G. M. Parsons, Sherman; Addison Fisher, Riverdale; C. A. Olson, Harrison; V. Zoelle, Lu Verne. All vacancies will be filled by the executive committee. THE YEAR'S DEAD. J. E. Blackford, the^society's committee to keep note of'the death list, read the following report: Your committee on obituaries would- respectfully report that as time passes on our old settlers, one by one, lay down the labors of this life and pass over to the "Better Land." Since our last meeting six of those found on the secretary's list have been summoned by death. They are" Horace Schenck, Robert Stephenson, Rhoda Carey, Janet McIntyre,;Harriet P. Witham and J, H. Warren. /These are all old residents and well known among the pioneers of the county. .A long list of good deeds- might be appended .to each name, but it is only the province of your committee to call to the notice of the association that these pioneers have been called away and not to write a eulogy on their lives. The history of this • county cannot be written with their names left out. As their names are recalled some one will recall some kind word said, some good deed performed, some noble sacrifice made by each one, on which memory will love to dwell. And so their influence will still be with us, for— They never quite leave us, our Friends who have passed Through the shadow of death to The sunlight above. It is the work that men and women do that shall live after them, and the work of these departed ones that will make a place for them in the hearts of the people—this is their best monument, their 'warmest eulogy, Some testimonial should be spread upon our .record, and your committe would •recommend the adoption of the following resolution: Resolved, That in the death of Horace Schenck, Robt. Stephenson, Rhoda Carey, Janet Mclntyre, Harriet P, Witham, and J, H. Warren, our association, as well as the county they helped pa to develop, has sustained a great loss, and we tender to the families and immediate friends of the deceased our warmest sympathy. It is all we can do. When death comes to claim his victim we are powerless to resist or help, and can only "weep with those'that weep," and look forward to that sweet day that tbe poet sings of— At the crystal river's brink Some sweet day, by and by, We shall find each broken link gome sweet day, by and by.
