F. KAX1UI2* GOOD OLD THE UPPER DBS M<HXES publishes two interesting reminders of the days in Koseuth county prior to 1873 when ifaeact demonetizing silver waepassed. One l« Samuel Heed's history of the first threshing machine in the county, with comments on grain raising and its profits; the other a string df items and market reports from the files of the paper of those days. The two area fitting commentary on the claim that the farmer has not prospered in the «ucceeding 20 years, and that the prices of produce have been cut an two by unfair legislation. Geo. E. Roberts £s now engaged in compiling similar statistics for the etate. He has been going through the files of several leading daily papers and copying the market reports. His summary is to be published and sent out by the state central committee as a campaign document, and everyone who IB interested in the present discussion "of the money question will await it frith interest. Such statistics go to "the merits of one of the main claims of the free silver advocates. It is confidently asserted that the prices of farm produce have been cut fa two since 3873 by the demonetization of silver. , Every report which shows what such produce actually has sold tor is a fact, infinitely more valuable than whole Bundles of theories. There are a great many who have lived in Kossuth county 25 years and who know what they sold grain, and 5»rk, and butter for back prior to 1873, and what they have sold, for since. .Their reminiscences would be of interest as contributions to county history, and would add to the general sum of .information on the subject of money and prices, THE UPPER DES will.gladly publish any and all reports that-the old settlers will send in. If all will jot down their recollections of what they got for their bogs and grain, and of .what they paid for their «ugar and calico and farm machinery, we eball have the best kind of an idea of whether the farmer is worse off DOW iban be^was 20 years ago.

There is DO occasion. The free coinage of silver by the United States at the ratio of 16 to 1 will not establish bimetallism, and we So not believe that the Democrat thinks it will. Silver was demonetized by all the commercial nations in concert. It will have to be put back in the same way. AH the United States can do is to bring our business to a silver basis, and the Democrat cannot point out a single ad vantage by such a change from our existing condition, while the disadvantages would be numerous. •f- •+• •*-• Knute Nelson of Minnesota says: " The free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1 by the United States alone at this time and under existing conditions will destroy the last vestige and last bope of genuine bimetallism, and will reduce us to a pure silver monometallism." -*--!--*- , Anyone by dropping a card to the secretary of the treasury at Washington can get a little book which gives all the facts about gold, silver, and money tbat the department pessesses.

It win be interesting to PBI- readers to compare 18*2, the year before salver «r«s demonetized, and 18SB, the .rear before President Cleveland cam* in with l;s program of radical legislation. Besxks tiers are a lot of items that recall <iW names sed faces and old times. -I- -5- *• Here, for instance, is a report of the baiter and egg war between Leggett and Pierce in the issue of Oct. 8, 1871: "Liggett offer* 30 cents for butter, and 1* cents for eggs," regular market price 1-5 and 13 cents, and he adds: " Liggett don't use ap fine combs in combing Ibis butter and other things and tien offer tbem as premiums to his customers to comb tiieir butter," and again: " The farmers of the ewantry know bow to treat the man wbo raises the price ol their batter and eges." A year later, in the issue of Sept. It, 1S72, is this note: " Leggett is bound to see fair play to tbe farmers. We learn be is again leading tie market in prices. He pays 15 cents for choice butter, 11 cents for eggs, 8 cents for pickled, and 12J£ cents for smoked pork." Thus is recalled one of tie characters of early Algona, as well as the painful fact that butter was not very high in 1871 and 1672. •4- -4- -*In July, 1872, THE UPPER DBS Moirassays: "Corn is worth 30 cents and oate 15 cents, without much prospect of advance," and again in August, 1872, it says: "The corn in this county looks as well as it did last year, but one gentleman has said tons: 'If you will go through a corn field you will see that the stalks are unusually heavy but the ear is very light' At all events, we would advise those having good, sound old corn, to hold it at least until it is worth more than 30 cents a bushel." Here are some of the market prices for corn during this period: Jan. 17, 1872, 125 cents; July 31, 30 cents; Oct 9, 30 cents; Jan. 32,1873, 30 cents. -i- -3- -^ On Jan. 17, 1872, wheat was quoted at 95 cents, and on July 31, at £1.30, but Oct. 16, it was down to 80@85, and on Jan. 32, 1873, it was down to 70@75 cents. Heie is a wheat note of Nov. 13, 1873: "Ambrose A Call threshed 30 bushels to the acre of Arnotka wheat and thinks the blight damaged the crop to the extent of 10 bushels per acre. His Fife wheat yielded but 13 bushels." Mr. Call's yield was a fair average. Someone had got after Editor Warren for putting the average in the county too low, and he replied with a column of clippings from other papers, Aug. 21, in which the yield was given at 13 bushels in Jones county, 18 in Plymouth, 17 in Tama, 17 in Union, 15 in Marshall, 14 in Guthrie, 12 in Davis and 13 in Butler. An aver age yield of 13 bushels of wheat at 75 cents a butbel would not be considered very big nowadays. An idea prevails that there has never been any 50 cent wheat until lately. Here are the market quotations in Algona for several years: Sept. 38, 1861, wheat was 81 a bushel; June 9, 1869, it was 75@ SO cents; Oct. 27,1869, it was 50@60 cents; Dec. 8,1869, 50 cents, and so on till June 30, 1870, when it went to 65; Aug. 10, 1870, it went to 70 cento,'Jut Sept 14, it is quoted at 50 cents again; Sept 28, it is 60 cents; Oct. 5, 50 cents; Oct. 37, 70 cents, and Nov. 16, 65 cents. On Nov. 30,1872, THE UPPER DBS MOINES says: "D. A. Haggard of Irvington hauled the first load of wheat over the new road from frvington to the depot this morning. He thinks it is at least two miles shorter than the old road." With such a yield at such prices saving that two miles' haul was highly appreciated. •*-•<--(THE UPPER DES MOINES had no market quotations on stock in those days, but in the issue of Jan, I, 1873, it has an item.about some Poland China pigs E. C. Buffum had brought to Algona, and, speaking of the herd be got them from, it says: "M. H. Beaver, the owner, has recently sold 100 head of these hogs averaging 467}£ pounds, at Lincoln, 111., at four cents a pound." Ifsuchihogs near Chicago were worth .but four centa, the Algona prices were.evidently low enough.. •*-•*- -f- 5TJie whole market Js fairly summed up for ithe year 1873 in the following market gustations of Jan, 23,18TS: *te& & tite taunt tasfortoarerittf aad raising «s yoa drive * <ft***«ui borse MUert Sold fo* lWtil& iuoli^ ife&d tira Wader #sflsr«-#25.

Wilson were competing in the lumber trade with considerable vigor—that was when the court house was built—and Mr. Johnson offered some special lumber bargains. Here is part of the list: 1st common boards, joist, and stadding, 121 a thousand; 1st fencing, *23; sheating, |18 @30; 1st flooring. |38, etc. In July, 1872, THE UPPEB DES MOIXES said: " Fifty loads of lumber going out of Algona a day is no unustal sight" •*• -»- -s- Even dancing was not cheap then. Here is a program of the old times when thepresentBrnnswickihotel stood at ttie Milwaukee depot: " Christmas Festival at the Algona house, Dec. 24, 1873. Your company with lady is solicited. A Christ provided. Committee in charge, J. B. Jones, Misses Wooster and Krater. Floor managers, G. R. Woodworth, S. L Plumley, Frank Butterfleld. Music by Algona string band.

Before anybody in Kossuth begins to kick on prices as they were under President Harrison, let him read, ponder, and reflect THE WEEK'S AOOIDERTS. A leaky gasolene stove set fire' to E. J. McMullen's house .in Livermore, Monday of last week. Lightning struck the telephone wire between Whittemore and Lotts Creek last Tuesday, cutting it in two and damaging tbe 'phones. The Champion says both have been replaced. Miss Mollie Acres, a frequent Algona visitor, was in a runaway at Sheldon last week. Besides ' being badly bruised, she sustained the fracture of three ribs. At last reports she was getting along nicely, and by this time she is around again. Tuesday morning ae Hans Nelson and a gang of workmen at Britt were going out to work with & band car and a "dummy" ahead, they met tbe gravel train, and in trying to stop the dummy-car Nelson fell under the wheels of the hand car; he was dragged several rods.

The charge grazed the side of his face, tearing a great hole in his hat, burning his face and eye, and one stray shot tore a hole in the edge of his ear. The Herald says he was soon patched up.. Lightning struck J. S. Williams' house at West Bend in last week's big Sunday storm. The house was considerably damaged, having a hole through the roof and upstairs ceiling, a lot of plaster on the walls loosened, and some casing and cornice torn off. Mr. Williams' little girl was upstairs standing directly under where the hole was made through roof and ceiling, disrobing for bed, and bow she escaped being killed is a mystery. She was knocked down but soon recovered and apparently suffered no ill effects from the shock. Monday Oscar Anderson, the eight- year-old son of C.

Dortaad a> an AlgoniftB, Mil be interested i following account of bis present taken from the Dailjr Herald o* Angeles. Mr. Dorland is, we believe devoting his whole time to Bible study! and will follow that line as his wofk: The closing lesson in Messianic Pfopbecj by Prof, Doriand was one of unusual interest, setting forth as it did the end of prophetic teaching and als» the consummation of all- religious life The subject was, "The £ew Heavea and the New Earth," which, the speak* er said, was the law ot rtghteou^ness and justice written in the hnniaa conscience, that political, social, or individual life can only be purified and perfected by the spirit of the Christ, The prophetic promise is of an aee- when God, and not greed, shall control the world. This earth is to be purified, the destructive force of the physical and moral world, is to be overcome, ware shall cease and denomination bickerings shall pass away, and everything tbat shall hurt or harm either man or beast shall be utterly destroyed, and tben r and not till then, will be accomplished the mission given to the first man: "Subdue the earth and replenish it" At the close of the lesson, a resolution very complimentary to Prof, Dorland, was unanimously passed by the class. On Friday evening, at the cloee ol Mr. Dorland's course of lessons upon Messianic Prephjcy, a member of the class made a sCatement and offered a. preamble and" resolution, as follows: There is an Impression outside Cbau- tauqua circles, and perhaps also within them, that the expression of independent thought in Bible normal classes here is not common and is not to be expected. Whatever may have been the- custom in other assemblies or other classes, we know that such an impression of this class is not correct?,, and, in order to be correctly represented and not to be seriously misunderstood on this subject, it seems to me advisable to express ourselves in relation to it and, more or less, to'this effect: Whereas, in the course of instruction by C. P. Dorland L. L. B., upon Messianic Prophecy, before the Bible normal class in the Chautauqna assembly at Long Beach, ?s^k' h h n da ^' from Ju ^ H to July 24, 1896, he has uniformly pursued the Bible students best plan, asking repeatedly and habitually, "What does thte Scripture teach ?» rather than assenting to what the theologians have usually taught about it; and, whereas, he has constantly pursued this course, notwithstanding the fact that he has not always been in accord with the beliefs of the several churches to which we belong nor yet in full harmony with the creed of that denomination with tie is himself connected; and, whereas, we individually seek the truth and seek it independently, therefore, . Resolved, That we recognize in his way pnr best method; that we deem it due alike to him, to ourselves and the Chautauqua management to express our appreciation of his system of personal study and individual interpretation; that, in consideration of the candor and frankness with which he has expressed his personal interpretation: and opinions, we do now tender to him a vote of thanks, heartily and unanimously. All of the foregoing was cordially indorsed andadoptedbyhislarge class. A Coofc Book Free.
