The Cherry sisters have Invaded Nefr York City. They opened to an audience of over 4,000 people. The New York papers devote columns to them. The audience had never seen anything }ike it. One of the girls came out bare-footed to give her little piece and a boy in the gallery called out, "Jennie, where are your socks?" It was an evening of hilarity and it is said they will remain in the city a month. They sing songs, recite school pieces, and read original essays. They take themselves very seriously and believe that they are geniuses. The east enjoys them as typical of the west. They are announced as samples of Iowa culture. offset this she has ertibafked ih atiothef line, for we see by TtfB UPPER DBS MOINES that a market for old rubber boots and overshoes has been opened there, and the editor requests all Its readers to visit the office of the old rubber company. B. M. Richmond says its the Swea City Herald: Ye editor enjoyed a fine breakfast at the TeUttant house last Thursday. Among the bill of fare was as fine a piece of venison as was ever eaten, being a portion of the two deers brought from Wisconsin by the landlord, on his return from a visit to his old home. Joo is quite a boy for his age, and never goes on a hunt without bringing home his share of the game. Apples are still cheap and lota being sold. Sere is Bailey's warning: Somebody is writing for the papers that apples eaten just before retiring are a great help to digestion. We tried it and about 2 o'clock wo dreamed that a fire- rod dragon with a poagreon tall and eyes as big as a soup plate was carving us up with a meat saw and a sword. We finally awoke to find our good wife fanning up with a bed slat and trying to get tho baby out of the coal scuttle, where we put it to keep the dragon from getting it. Darn the apples, give us prunes. MOZINLEY GOSSIP, If you want the best* use V. 11. Dolllvor's Victor and Mrs. Dolliver go to Minneapolis soon to make their homo. At present they are visiting in Fort Dodge. The Messenger says: Mr. Dolliver has been one of the most sought after speakers in the national republican committee roll and was constantly in the service from the last of August until election day. He traveled, accompanied by Mrs. Dolliver, over 1,100 miles, and addressed nearly 100 meetings. Tho work was arduous, but interesting and enjoyable withal. Mr, Dolliver has secured office rooms and a residence in Minneapolis, and will devote himself to his law practice from now on. Attaching a Cow. Lawyer McEnroe of Whlttemore went out In the country last, week to attach a cow. For a time it was a question whether he had attached the cow or the cow had attached him. The Champion describes a hot chase through the deep enow, the end of which was the burying of the lawyer in a hay stack around the end of which he tried to snub his fractious attachment. Hereafter he will attach un- moveables. "Farmer" Burns at Eafslo Grove. The champion wrestler of the world, Farmer Burns, will exhibit at Eagle Grove Friday evening. He will give any man $26 who can choke him, o-nd he offers no resistance only with tho muscles of his neck. His challenge is open to any wrestler that cares to meet him and ho will make a present of $25 to any four men he cannot throw In an hour, and the same amount to any one person he cannot throw in 15 minutes, Tlie Sherburne Bank Robber. Marshal Ruby of Lake Mills, who caught the live bank robber, has been presented the bicycle owned and ridden by the dead man. Kellihan's father gave it to him. The live man has plead not guilty and his trial is set for February. His father says he will not help him except to save his neck. The young man keeps as cool and good natured as ever. Thinly Clad for tho Season. The Monitor tells of a charitable act at Burt. A young lady camo to the home of Lara Sorrenson in need. The Monitor says: She was hungry and he gave her to eat; a stranger and he took her in; naked and he clothed her. SPRINGFIELD MINN It Is Cleverer Than His Speeches. Armstrong Journal: The play, "By Wits Outwitted," will be given in Algona, Deo. 11. This play was written by Edward O. Towne, the great silver orator of Chicago, who spoke in Algona, Emmetsburg, and Estherville before election. The Andrews at Whlttemore, The Andrews Opera company played the Mikado at Whittemore to a $122 house. That is more than they drew in Algona. . AMOMJ THE ADVEBTISEBSi W. E. Curtis writes from Canton to the ChicagoKeoord: The office seekers are already beginning to come in, and among the arrivals at Canton this morning wore several gentlemen who have made haste to inform Maj. Mo- Kinley of the important work they have performed during the campaign, and of their expectations. It is a curious fact, too, that a good part of his mail for two weeks or more has been composed of similar communications, although he has riot roud a single letter of this sort, and probably will never see them. Those who aspire to public office under the next administration may take notice that early birds are not welcome, and will be certain to prejudice their chances by premature exhibition of eagerness and anxiety. Maj. McKinley is thoroughly disgusted with the shameleasness of some of his party friends in this respect, and will make no promises and give no assurances to any one until tUe time comes when he must make up his kingdom. It Is therefore not only useless for parsons to apply to him for appointments, but those who show indec'ent haste to do so, will, In his opinion, be displaying their unfitness for the poets they seek. -i- -*- 4- It is a question whether Mr. Hanna will have a place in the cabinet. It Is conceded by those who are in Maj. Mo- Kinley's confidence that he can have his choice of all the positions that are at the disposal of tho president-elect, but Mr. Hanna, who talks freely on the subject, says he will not accept any. He says that he cannot afford to do so; that his business Interests have been neglected for more than a year, and that it will take him two years of hard work to catch up. He declares that he has done with politics forever, and that, having accomplished his heart's desire and elected his friend to the presidency, he is fully satisfied with the fame it has brought him, and will gladly retire to private life as soon as that friend is inaugurated and started upon his official career. There is no doubt of Mr. Hanna's' sincerity in this matter. All his friends know the extent of the sacrifices he has made and the financial burden he has been carrying. He has not only contributed from one-quarter to one-half of his fortune to win this campaign, but his extensive private interests have been entirely intrusted to others and have suffered seriously during the prevailing depression. Before the St. Louis convention he talked just as he does now. He said that if Maj, MoKinley was nominated he would quit politics forever, satisfied with what he had accomplished, but a combination of circumstances, and McKlnley's urgent request, caused him to reconsider that decision and take command of the campaign. Similar conditions may re quire him to accept a place in the official family. He has the complete confidence of all the different elements that have combined to assist him during the fight, and it may be that his presence in the cabinet will be found necessary to preserve a political equilibrium, and accomplish the purposes both he and the president- elect have in their minds.
