Paderewaki, tbe Polish pianist who is taking about 820,000 a week oot of tbe United States, was ia Dee Moines daring the convention. He could not be interviewed, bat bis next best man, Herr Gorlitz, talked to a Capital reporter abotrt the politicians be saw about him: " TJi« menace of tbis coontry," said he, " is Its politicians. They are tbe cause of all tbe bard times. I never saw a class in my life who are so lacking in all tbat goes to make a cultured people. Their countenances bespeak a very inferior grade of intelligence. Look at these whom yon see hare in tbis hotel. 1 think they are not representative of the American people. My valet said to zne this morning; ' I would bate to be oat in the woods witb those fellows.' He -expressed in a very terse way my views upon tbe subject." Congressman Sam Clark, who is himself an orator, in talking about tbe oratory in congress, recently said: il l presume that if there were a contest for a prize of oratory, aa such, in the old ' Faris-and-tbe-apple' fashion of Latin or Greek mythology, among the members of the present bouse, old or new, who have spoken often enough to have .their full measure known, it would really narrow down to a contest between Mr, TJolHver and Mr. Cousins, of my own state, Aa to oratory, as such, these two are tbe supremest men in tbe house, I will be as impatient as Carlyle if anyone f nda fauli with my adjectives as I choose to make them. Mr, Dolliver is tbe greatest master in originality and epigram; Mr. Cousins of analysis and cumulative postulates. But 1 admire and love them both so much that I shall not , carry this parallel further." Marsballtown wants tbe coming republican state convention.

Thebotee bill reqniringosagebedges to be cat down to foar feet has passed both branches and will become a law. Tbe Burlington bill appropriating £10.000 for tbe semi-centennial -bas paaeed both booses. Burlington is required to raise flO,000 additional. The weatber and crop service is allowed ^,700 per year for its support. There was no session of either boose on Wednesday oo account of the republican state convention. To make way for this adjournment, both houses held sessions tbe night before. The bouse committee on schools has decided to amend tbe present school law so as to allow the school funds to be consolidated into one fond, so tbat the entire school fond will be subject to draft for any lawful purpose the board may direct. Tbis is to remedy the evil of school treasurers retaining fonds in tbeir possession because there is money in one fund and another fund is exhausted. In this way warrants often have to be discounted or people wait for their money. The bill for the improvement of the Fort Madison penitentiary, carrying with it an appropriation of €51,000, has passed both booses. This is a compliment to the integrity and capacity of Warden Jones, who is entrusted witb tbe making of the improvements. Tbe senate was less liberal than the house toward tbe state agricultural society, voting a gross sum of §7,000 while tbe bouse had made an appropriation of §3,000 with 83,000 a year thereafter. This bill provoked tbe longest and most pointed debate that bas so far taken place in tbe senate. Senator Trewin criticised tbe state fair society in unmeasured terms for its extravagance and lack of capacity. Senator Perrin made a sarcastic and witty speech in opposition to the bill. By act of both houses tbe state university ia given the tax of one-tenth of one mill for five years for a building fund. Tbe traveling men are seeking to have the railway law amended requiring tbe railway companies to issue mileage books for fire thousand miles each, good on any road in tbe state and the boys have had a bearing before the committees.

He was called away to attend court before he had completed bis canvass, but will doubtless return. Tbis is a matter in which Livermore should make a decided move at tbe first opportunity, and if tbe plan tbis gentleman offers is all o. k. let's take bold of it and not remain in the backwoods any longer. We will soon be tbe only town in the state tbat does not have all these modern improvements.

Tbe prevailing tero^miare invaded Clarke's hall aod kept tf« atmosphere, even in the midst of the eow and road discussion, at t&e cbrystaljz- 1 ing point. Tbe new steam heaters at tbe ctrort room were too moch for it, however, and Henry Wallace talked to a warm audience Thorsday evening. Bat tbe chill out of doors and in doors did not interfere with tbe real enthosi- asm and a goodly gathering of practical farmers and lively talkers was present at all the sessions. The opening discussion waa on tbe cow. W. H. Clarke talked for the Jersey, T. J. Julian for tbe Holatein, M. Scbenck for the Red Polled and Frank Jenkinson for the Short Horn. Mr. Clarke had scarcely finished before the advocates of the various breeds were ready for debate, and Mr. Julian set tbe ball rolling a good deal faster. The papers read, rebuttal and sur-rebuttal came in and the audience was as highly entertained witb rival milk records and explanations thereof as it would have been witb a four cornered political debate. Tbe main issue set- tied down between tbe Jerseys and Holsteins as butter makers, the Short Horn and Red Polled advocates resting on their laurels as the general purpose stock of tbe west. Tbe next question stirred up another red hot debate, being road reform. Tbos. F. Cooke advocated paying all road tax in cash, under drainage and heavy rolling on tbe surface of our dirt roads, and the use of wide tired wagons. At the close be offered a resolution endorsing a bill now before tbe legislature giving a rebate in road to all farmers using three inch four inch tires, not to exceed $4 to one and 58 to the other each year, soon as he was in his seat S. H. Xutt pitched into tbe resolutions tax and the As Mc- and all the suggestions made with zeal, and went for the professional road reformers with a sharp stick. J. W. Wadsworth, Senator Chubb, C. B. Hutcbins and others defended the resolution and Mr. McNutt replied to them. A rising vote was required to settle who had carried tbe day, but tbe resolution was adopted by a vote of 42 to IS. Tbis and tbe cow question occupied the after- and let nature take its noon, Senator Chubb giving in this discussion his statement of the county's record in road work. A STOBT ON JUDGE OOOK.

Webster Ballinger in tbe Dubuque Globe-Journal tells this story at Judge Cook's expense: "The story about Reed sitting in a back seat of the house the other day and clapping his bands for a page, which some of bis ardent admirers mistook for applause," said an Iowa member yesterday, " reminds me of a ridiculous mistake which J. C. Cook of Iowa made in the house one day in the Forty-eighth congress. Cook tells it on himself, and so I suppose he will not be offended if I give it to the Times. Cook was the contestant of the seat cer- tifled to M. E. Cults, now deceased. The session was well along before he made his appearance in Washington, the case having not yet been disposed of. He introduced himself to the doorkeepers and was admitted at the front door. Now, Cook had been judge of the circuit court; he was a fine, portly looking man, considerable of an orator, and he was used to receiving attention in a public way. It happened by a strange conjunction of circumstances that just as the judge appeared upon the floor, having reached a place about where John Allen usually has his seat, a dozen members clapped thair hands to summon a page. Judge Cook concluded it was a burst of applause ushering in bis debut in congress, and did what was most natural to do under such circumstances, first bow profoundly toward the speaker's desk, then to the members on the right mid then to the members on the left. Poor Cook. He never realized until he dropped into a seat that he Imd been the victim of a painful misapprehension," In the evening a big audience of farmers was out to bear Henry Wallace on foreign agriculture. Mr. Wallace is a Scotch-Irishman. His relatives are all in Ireland yet and two years ago he visited them and in bis lecture be told in an entertaining way of bow they live, farm and do business in tbe Emerald isle. It was as interesting as any lecture Algona has had in years, full of solid information and livefy incident. Mr. Wallace is a host by himself in a farmer's gathering. Friday morning an excellent paper by Supervisor Barton on tbe poor farm was read, and then an informal discussion of corn fodder and substitutes for hay opened up, ending with C. B. Hutchins' paper on tame grasses, which Henry Wallace said was as good as he ever beard. In tbis discussion it developed that Mr. Hutchins and several others who spoke have not fed any bay for two years. Mr. Wallace said ensilage was the best fodder for milk cows and could be handled about as cheaply as ordinary corn fodder. A talk by "Uncle Steve" Pettibone on the brood sow closed the session, and this led to a lively and witty interchange between him and Mr. Wallace about foods. The ball was crowded in the afternoon. President Wadsworth of the county society read an able paper on the county fair. Geo. S. Angus then discussed the cream test and told about the automatic skim railk weigher invented over at Whittemore by Hanna & Swanson. This led to an interesting discussion. D. A. Wallace talked about the effect of tariff changes on wool, and quoted statistics to prove that "free wool" hud resulted in increasing tbe importation of foreign FARMERS' BOB AliD flow They SJwaH Be fettled ia to lake of Tie* Useful Honorable Citizens.

Clarke has kept the record for bis Jersey dairy for tbe year from Jan. I. 1595. He has milked 19 cowa altogether, wvme young, some farrow. the record is for all. The total receipt for batter was 51.081.10 or S56.9Q to each cow. Mr. Clarke estimates S62.40 for butter used in the family, S132 for calves'. $75.70 for skim milk at _10 cents per 100 pounds, which gives him a total of f70.62 per cow. Tbe average butter prodnctfon ia 266 pounds to the cow. GENERAL NOTES. The institute was voted a success by everybody. It is evident that every man likes his own cows best. Mrs. C. D.

He said that tariff changes had nearly destroyed the wool business. M. PeL. Parsons gave a list of tbe fruit trees, apples chiefly, that have succeeded hereabouts, and opened nn interesting discjssion G. S. Wright, on dairying for profit, touched on all the main points of dairy discussion and read «. very valuable paper, The session closed with two general papers. Mrs. C. D, Ward read one on the Boys and Girls which elicited groat applause nnd which we publish in full elsewhere. C, C. Chubb read one by Henry Durant touching ot) the possibilities of farming, also enthusiastically received. Before adjournment a call was made on Mr. Went worth of Marshall town who represented Dairy Commissioner woarqman, who was unable to be present, and who gave an Interesting tulle on the general outlook of dairying, RAILWAY AND INSURANCE STATUTES. The following resolutions were and adopted by unanimous vote: WheroaS: Next year's institute will be something to talk about. Corn and water was decided not to be the feed for young bogs. D. A. Wallace says sheep are raised at greater prolt than hogs or cattle. The stock men were not in it appreciably. Dairying carried the pennant. The theory is to have institutes for new plans and county fairs to show results. Sheep for mutton instead of for wool were said to be what we should aim to produce. The Wealthy apple is the one M. DeL. Parsons picks out as the leader for Kossuth. S. H. Pettibone chose a Chester White sow and Poland China boar as tbe ideal combination for breeders. G. S. Wright endorses ensilage for milk cows. He says the use of it has increased rapidly in his part of New York. C. B. Hutchins has been feeding dairy cows sheaf oats and corn fodder with tbe ears on, and has had good results. Some question was raised about tbe fairness of the milk test when night's milk is mixed with morning's and then tested. G. S. Angus said he thought it was as fair for one as for another. Henry Wallace gave tbree ways to sow clover. Sow it by itself and pasture it, sow it with two or tbree kinds of grains and pasture, sow it in corn. He says clover will do best sowed alone and a crop is almost a sure thing. EEV. A. L. HUDSON'S OEUBOH. He la Making a Blgr Success of the Ministry at Salt take City. The Unitarian for March contains a lengthy report of the work in the Unitarian church at SaltLake City. It says: "Since Oct. 1, thirty-nine new members have been added to tbe church rolls, including some of the leading business men in the city. The congregation has grown steadily until it averages nearly three hundred. The Sunday-school now numbers over one hundred, and all departments of work are showing a healthful and harmonious activity," Another paragraph is of interest to Rev.

It was not f M- themselves and os oolr, bat for the boys sad girls also tbat osr fathers and mothers left homes of plenty ia tbe east and came to what was then an saset- tted country and underwent privations and nardsliip of whicb we, in these years of plenty, can scarcely realize. It is to tirem we looi to make tbe best possible use of their abdity aod tkaitage to build up and protect oar country. Oar dm? is first to give attention to their health, for with bodies eufeeWai by disease they can neither folly esjoy life nor be able to accomplish toe work required. The child should be impressed at aa early age with tbe toooght of tbe sacredness of the human body and tbe necessity of keeping it free from disease, disgusting habits and all andeanlr&ess, for osly witb a soaad body can the mind and morals be soond. The clothing sbotiM receive a&teatioa and though the income of a fanner does not admit of luxuries nor of following- all t&e latest fashions and fancies, it is sofficient if rightly used to purchase the necessities and some of the adornments. Good food is an important factor and we want all tbe boys and girls to learn to cook. It is as important as tbat the girls learn to milk, and though the boys will probably never become so proficient as their sisters it is quite as necessary that they be able to cook tbe common dishes, and a meal cooked and served by them has aa attractiveness all its own. We are glad to see the boys sod girls encouraged to mat e exhibits at tbe county fair, bat woald like to see all pantry stores receive more attention acd premiums. It is commendable to try to raise the beet squashes, beets and potatoes, bet it Is quite as necessary tbat they be properly cooked, and it is of moch more importance to know than which horse can ran the fastest. We should like to have a lectnre or some means by which we can pa n new ideas and a Mitie enthusiasm on the subject. We should keep the boys and girls employed, not that they should have no time for play, bat the old saying, " Satan finds mischief for idle hands to do," is a true one. The little girts have their sewing, knitting and crochet work, hot it is more difficult to £iad coogenoal emptoymeit for little boys, bas so SOOQ as they are large enough to fartssg in. wood, feed the calves or poll weeks ia the garden, etc:, they wiB make up for lost time. When the boys sr» old enough let as give to each a piece of land to plant and care for htm*g{f and to each girl a share of the eggs she gathers or a portion of the garden to plant to «m»H fruiter vegetables. Let them have the money and teach them to keep their own cash accounts. It gives them a chance to see and reflect how they have spent their moaey and it is not so moch what they earn as what they save that gains a competence. Let up admonish them to rely opoa themselves, to carefalty consider before they buy and under no consideration to sign a note with another or to ask another to sign. One may imagine he is doing a friendly act by so doing, bat it creates a spirit of dependence and worthlessness which we do not care to foster. They should be tanght to be observing. The one who does not see that the fence is weak until tbe cattle are gone or that the oven is hot until the bread is burned pays for the neglect at a dear price. Let us give to each of the boys aod girls a practical training in some respectable oces- pation bi which he or she can earn an honest living. In choosing a vocation natural qualifications mostof course be taken into consideration, bat let it be something in which they are interested, something tfass calls put their best thoughts and which is sufficiently remunerative that the girts seed never keep boose for someone to gain her daily bread. We are cot anxious to have the boys and girls marry, bat under no consideration do we want oce of the girls to marry a man expecting to reform fcfrff It is natural for young people to have high hopes and great faith, bat if a "«*" has not the respect for himself to keep free from bad habits, she will have only heartaches for her good intentions. An English writer has said that ia hi* opinion a boy ought to be shut in a barrel when he is eight years old and kept there, receiving his sustenance through tbe» bong hole until he is 21. We do not agree with him, but think a boy should receive fast as careful training as his sisttr and as much be required of him. We are too careless of the boys. We dress tha girls in their best take them with us to church or elsewhere and expect them to be models of propriety, but the boys are, too often, left at home to look out for themselves aad may perhaps be seen with questionable companions, going with skates or guns on their shoulders, cigars in their mouths, to the river, there to meet with low associates acd then we wonder that the boys have such immoral tendencies. We do not believe the boys are naturally bad.
