The preeent coagress will meet !a a few weeks to finish its term of service. Senator Allison is one of those who hope that the passage of the Dinelej bill will be one of the achievements of the session. Last year the house passed this bill, but the senate loaded it down with a free silver amendment. This year it is hoped that enough democratic senators will join the sound money republicans to pass the bill, and that President Cleveland will sign it. If they do President McKinley will not call an extra session of congress. If they do not an extra session will con* gregate as soon after March 4 as President McKinley can get it together. TheDingley bill is intended to increase the revenues by raising tariff duties. It provides that wool and lumber be taken from the free list and that 60 per cent of the McKinley tariff be restored. It provides that an increase of 15 per cent, be made in all schedules included in the Wilson bill, unless such increase brings the rate higher than it was under the McKinley bill. It is a eort of compromise between the two laws, and some republicans are opposed to it. They want tariff legislation postponed until it can be entered upon thoroughly with a view to a complete revision. The deficiency in revenues of the country has not been checked. It can not be until congress acts. TheDing- ley bill will put us back on a paying basis, and it is intimated that President Cleveland will allow it to become a law if the senate endorses it. It is still a question what the silver republicans and the democrats in the senate will decide to do. THE SA1.00X SYSTEM. There are only four arguments in favor of the saloon system. The first is that social drinking places are desirable. This is an argument which does not appeal to the judgment of any considerable portion of the American public.- Whatever social drinking places may be in Europe, they are a failure here. It is impossible with our mixed population and nervous climate that they will ever be anything else. There are very few people who will today honestly advocate social public drinking in saloons. The second argument is that they draw trade. This argument appeals to a much larger class, and often seems to have some foundation. But taking a local illustration it is certainly true that Whittemore has made remarkable progress during the past five years, in open competition with West Bend and Emmetsburg, both saloon towns, ' In Whittemore the mulct petition got few signatures, comparatively. This argument of drawing trade is of only local application, but it has done more to spread saloons than any other, for each town feels compelled to adopt the saloon system to keep pace with its neighbor, and no one is willing to discard it so long as it exists anywhere else. The third argument is that the saloon pays a tax. This is only a superficial and catch argument, for anyone can see that it is the people who pay the taxes just the same, and that the system of taxation which the saloon introduces is the most unfair of all, putting all the burden on those least able to bear it. The community as a whole is better able to pay the public expenses without saloons than with them. But the saloon lightens the burden on those who do not patronize it, and doubles it on those who do, and it is easy for those who escape to believe that public revenues are more readily and satisfactorily The fourth argument is that other systems of selling liquor are failures. People who propose new things have always to meet this conservative force in society which clings to established quetomseven when it cannot defend them, preferring the evils it has to Other tbaHfc knows not of, The least uncertainty Rbput the, working of a new law encourages a. loud protest Against any change 'whatever, No satisfactory iigaor iaw has yet been to gain by g-oibg all ote* that old fig fat again? The New York Sun recently made the following statement about the St. Louis platform: "This international agreement plank was never of practical importance, nor was it, intended to be. All that was meant by it •was that out of deference to a decaying bnt still widespread sapersHtaon, tie republican barty was willing to heat aeain what co-aid be said for silver and to discuss the currency question with otfaet nations. But experience forebade and forbids lie idea U»at anything could coine of it" This was telegraphed to Senator Gear^ Iowa's member of the resolution committee, by Frank W. BicknelJ and his reply is as follows: " The financial resolution adopted at St. Louis was adopted by tie committee and the convention in good faith with the earnest determination to do all in the power of the republican party to promote an inter national agreement. The campaign was foug-ht and the victory won on this"issue.*' Senator Gear's reply was immediately following a conference in Chicago with Senator Allison. Hf THIS JfBtGHBOSSOOD. Sexton has five pool tables. Corwith is to have a public library. Mrs. C. O. Simpson of Algona is in Livermore for Thanksgiving. B. F. Smith is able to be about up at Gerniania, but is still very weak. Armstrong's fourth saloon has closed. The Journal says three are enough. F. M. Bacon of Wesley is the new St. Joe butter maker. He is an expert creamery man. The Livermore Gazette notes a new young man in the home of Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Raney of Hobart. B. G. Hough, an Algona young man, has a jewelry store at Clarion. He has recently moved into larger quarters. Ledyard is to have a leap year dance. The boys are bashful up there and the girls have to do something even if this isn't leap year. The man who contracted to put electric lights in Emmetsburg can't raise the money. The lights will go over another year. Senator Brower of Hancock county has gone to Mishawaka, Ind. He had a sale last week, 15 horses and 100 hogs bringing $900 at auction. J. W. Newville of Wesley has gone to Beemer, Neb., to act as auctioneer. The Reporter says, "as an auctioneer Mr. Newville has few peers in the state." That big $10,000 breach of promise case against Perry Cuplin of West Bend has been settled. The terms are not known. Mr. Cuplin visited the plaintiff and made up. The Humboldt Republican refers unfeelingly to our David Grier: That man Grier, up in Pocahontas, seems to be a little long on writing and short on accomplishing anything. An examination of the eyes of the school children at Bancroft shows that there is not a pair of eyes that would not be benefitted by glasses. What are we coming to? Bancroft will be in it with Boston at this rate. Rev. COOK of Hobart preached at Emmetsburg Sunday. The Reporter says: Mr. Cook is a man over 70 years of age, and 50 of them have been passed in the service of his Master. His has been an active and faithful life and still his voice is heard almost every Sunday for the cause of Christianity. He preached two instructive sermons, Sunday, and had the closest attention from his audience. Des Moines Saturday Review: Dr. and Mrs. F. E. V. Shore dedicated their new home this week by giving two very pleasant companies. The women—who must always be first— were bidden to lunch on Thursday at 1 o'clock, when Mrs. Shore was assisted by Mrs. Burbank, Mrs. Thorns, Mrs. Cummlng and Mrs. Weaver. There were 50 guests, and the luncheon was served in three courses on little tables trimmed in pink carnations. Last evening Dr, and Mrs. Shore received both ladies and gentlemen. Master William Stuart, a diminutive butler, opened the door for the guests, Mrs. Burbank and Mrs. Gumming ushered them into the dining room, where they were served by the Misses Daisy Smouse, Ethel Stoner and Ethel Graham. At both parties there was entrancing music by players of the harp and violin. AN EVENING OF POPULAR MTJSIO, Celebrated Boston Quartette Will Entertain a Big Audience Next Tuesday Evening, The Temple Quartette will be here next Tuesday, It is undoubtedly the finest company of musicians who ever tried, The present pharmacy Jaw is almost as bad ae » saloon law, That if in a e&untv like Kossuth |t is that f $5 per <?ent, mulct petition. sj$y be 'secured, put after i$ if a p<$f f^m e» ? far wiiat is visited Algona. They come with unanimous /praise from all the big Cities, They come also at a pr}qe to the purchasers of season tickets which ought to fill the opera bouse to over* flowing, They sing popular music and have cost more to bring here than many opera companies. A year ago the quartette sang } n Keokgk, The Gate City said at that time that BO entertainment had ever given greater satisfaction,' < The Hl.j Not. I.—Monday awrnlntat9o 1 c!«3ci started lor Buffalo, N. T., on a business trip. I **& greatly interested la tie trip, as 3-011 know, I hate never in say life been east of Chicago. I passed through L&porte, Rclling Prairie, New dai-liste, Terre Gorcpee, South Bend, EJkhmrt and Goshea, all of which were of great interest to me, and I feit as though they tuts* places I bad seen before. I -was so tanllifcr \rith the names, Itofe farms and fwnm hcreses in Indiana and Ohio are »M as cowl as in Illinois or lotra, This w&s a surj>rise to me, it was also a great saffirise t* s*e the farms fenced into ten acre fields irtili worm fences, mostly seren was hiefc, -with a rider on top. I wonder if these farmers never stopped to think that in fencang an SO acre farm in this way, into 10 acre fields, Vhey take up about fire sad * half sores of good ground, and make it iQBch harder to keep the •weeds out of the feet* darners, besides: or that one-third of the timber in the rails, sawed into boards, •would make neater and better fence. I fchmk it a great waste of high priced land and good timber. -S- -3- -*I thought it too bad to go so near Niagara and not see it, and as I could not see my man on Tuesday afternoon, 1 bought a round-trip tacket over the electric line from Buffalo to the falls, a distance of 25 miles, for 40 cents. I had a nice ride of about an hoar and a quarter, and saw more apples on the ground, in piles, and on the trees, than I ever saw in my life before. Greening's piled np as we pile turnips, and bright red ones, too. I tell you they were fine. A man buying for the western market said good hand-picked and packed Baldwins, Greenings, .Bang, or Spy could be bought in car lots at 75 cents a barrel. It costs 23 cents for the barrel, and 18 cents to pack, leaving 33 cents for the apples. -*-•*-•*I had heard about the extortions at Niagara Falls and thought I would steer clear of them and go it alone. It is no small matter to see the falls in a half day and I wanted to see all I could from 2:30 p. m. till dark. When I got out of the car I stepped into a trap—not a s-t-e-e 1 trap, but a s-t-e-a-1 trap, drawn by a horse, but driven by a donkey. He was crying: "Right this way, gentlemen, take a carriage and see the falls. Only five cents fora drive all through the park," etc. Well, I thought that would be a good way to spend five cents, so got in, and he drove me to a part of the park where I could see nothing, and stopped, and commenced telling me what there was to be seen, and that he would make the whole trip for 85, including toll, etc. I told him to go on with his five cent ride. I had contracted for a five cent ride and didn't want a ?5 one. Well, he would go for $4, for 53.50, for $3, I said, no, I wanted the five cent ride, but if he wasn't going on, I was, and I got out. He then said: "I will take you all around for $2," and as I was in a hurry, I decided to let him take me, and we started for suspension bridge, and as we drove out on the bridge I got my first view of the falls. Oh! how my heart sank within me with disappointment. I was nearly sick as I said to myself: "Isthis Niagara! I wish I had staid away and preserved the ideal, rather than to have met this disappointment in the real." I have seen smaller falls more pretty, and have heard as much noise and roar from the water at a mill-dam. I had especially prepared myself for a great roar that could be heard for miles, while, on the streets of Niagara, within four blocks, you cannot hear the falls during business hours. As I gazed in my disappointment I heard the guide saying: " Thisbridge is 220 feet from the water. It is 1,200 feet long. These falls on this side are the American falls 161 feet high, and only one-tenth of the water is on this side. That fall over yonder is the Horseshoe fall, and is 158 feet high, 1,600 feet wide," etc. I thought " What a liar the fellow is." I could not believe the distance was so great, that the cantilever bridge below was two miles down the river, It looked 80 rods. The American falls looked to he about 20 rods away, but was four times as far. -«--*--*As we drove on the bridge an official asked for 50 cents toll, for self, driver, and team. I referred him to the driver, who protested that it was my place to pay all tolls, so I paid it, and we drove on, and I for the first time set one foot on foreign soil. Well, I hadn't got the other one firmly planted on her majesty's dominion before I was surrounded by a dozen " Photographers to her majesty, the queen," who wanted to take my picture with the falls for a background, but I was obdurate, and wouldn't yield. I told them I knew they would make a good thing out of it if I did, that the picture of a good- point, tfcree quarters of a aQe ttiroagn toist from the f alls like rain, and roads «&4t buque Times of }ast says: better satisfied audience never left a hall than those who were so fortunate as to bear tbeie people on this their first appearance In $»is pity, One who wpuia venire an advene criticism looking citizen of the United States like me would sell like hot cakes to the English girls, and that my lowest price for a sitting wpuld be a dozen 10x13 pictures, etc, This didn't seem to roeet their views, so we parted, and we drove into Victoria park, a pretty place, I should think,' in summer, and the grass ia still green, though the flowers are gone. Put every season hag Jts peculiar charms, and this is the season for English ivy, and of all the tb}»g» i ever saw the ivy on the buildings in Victoria park was the roost lovely.. J had seen much of it elsewhere, but it 1$ an English Plant and cannot flourish jn its perfect beauty except in her nasty's domain. This pjung so close to the walls that At a distance of 10 rods it looked like a great paining. Brown at tbe bottom, ebbing }ntt> dark red, and through (be Intermediate h,ueg to the brightest flre red, Here I was told that the only tietp of the falls was from the top of th* house. It was free and I was favitad to make myself at home and go to the top, •which 1 flid, and got a good tiew, 1 saw the names of thousands of tisitors on Ihe walls, but did not find room to add mine. Afterward I tiought that those names were a record of the number of other fools in the world. Then I was invited to go and register. I followed a lady past numberless shop girls with ail sorts of curios, photos, mementoes, etc. None of them noticed me. At the end of a long room I found the register and added my name to the already long list and turned to go, bnt the way was barred by the aforesaid shop girls, who in every possible way urged me to part -with my sheckels, some with the sweetest smiles and softest flattery, others said erery gentleman bought somelhingj another said all their Indian curiosities were made in the home, (and they Were, by English girls). I picked out two little views ol the falls and paid a dollar. Then I was told that the best view was from below and I could go down for 50 cents. So I bought a ticket, took, off my collar and cuffs, put on heary rubbers, oil skin coat and pants, and two towels around my neck to keep the water out. It was an awful suffocating rig I tell you. The guide took me down the elevator and down slippery wooden steps right to the foot of the falls, and now I see Niagara in all her majesty and grandeur. I can hear her too, though I cannot hear a word of what my guide says though he shouts in my ear. Now as I see millions of gallons of water pouring out of the sky 160 feet above and falling on the rocks at my feet; the spray rising and filling and half obscuring the view; the tiny streams spurting out of the crevices of the rocks and falling a hundred feet only to be blown away in mist by the wind; to hear the thunder and feel the tremble of the mighty rocks beneath my feet; to feel the grip of my guide's hand on my arm, and hear him shout: "Be careful not to fall, for to slip here means death"—as I see and experience these things and look away to the suspension bridge and see only what looks like a foot bridge over the vast chasm, I realize something- of the grandeur and beauty of Niagara. We go through a long dark tunnel behind a little arm of the fall, a sort of artificial " Cave of the Wind," and feel the rush of air, and realize how impossible it would be for a man to breath at all behind the main fall. As it is so late in the season I give up going to the real "Cave of the Wind." From behind the fall we ttet the best view of the beautiful double rainbow, one end of which rests on the base of the falls. It is the first time I ever saw the base of a rainbow so near. There may be a pot of gold at the end of it, but a man who attempted to reach it would lose his life. At the head of the elevator I find a dozen more of her majesty's photographers, who want to take my photo in the nice duds I have on. I know I am awful pretty with the Dickens hood with its draw strings pulled tight around my face, something like the pretty country girl in her sun bonnet, as it were, but I resist all of their efforts to make money out of me, but do yield up a quarter to the guide, who protests it is his only means of gaining a living. " -j- -s- -s- Tbe next object of interest was the whirlnoolrapids, and guide tells me Is two and a half miles down the river. We go down to the bridges. The suspension bridge, built 30 years ago, is being removed and a steel arch being put in its place. The cantilever bridge is about 260 feet above the water, but is only about half as long as the suspension bridge. At the rapids we find another enclosed elevator and I am told that I am entirely welcome to everything, and a strong intimation, at least, that no charges are made. So I step in and go down 260 feet to a platform just above the water level. Here we can get an idea of the power of Niagara. For two miles the water flows in an undercurrent, the channel being said to be 100 feet deep, hut here in the gorge it rises to the surface and boils and foams and roars and plunges. Here Col. Boynton foolishly lost his life in attempting to swim across, and somebody in a barrel succeeded in passing through alive. I don't see how he did it, 1 would as soon try to go over the falls. After gazing in admiration as long as my time would permit I return to the elevator to go up, but flnd another 50 cents is required to get out, and as the whirlpool is on one side and the perpendicular rooks, 260 feet high on the other, the 50 cents Is paid, I met no further obstruction till I got to the top, At the top, though, is the sweetest and prettiest American girl in Niagara, and she is so nice, and so much nicer than her English sisters, that as a matter of patriotism I invest a quarter in an Indian doll and get away from further temptation. it, stew, , bnt am surprised to find that 25 cents pays the Htt. J. C. I am now driven to the United States park and dismiss my driver and go to Prospect point and sit down so close to where the American falls break over the edge tUftt I can almost touch it with my band. What a paradise for suioides. One step over the low wall into the rushing torrent and all is over. I am told that several have taken the fatal plunge from this point, one only four days ago. One wonders that they do not put up a railing that would make it impossible, I sit here and gaze on the beauty and power of the fails, wet and cold with the spray, but so fascinated thftt J cannot leave it. When jn the midst of my reverie I am asked by my. neighbor wh&t the legal charges of haokmea are. He and his wife and a' f riend, have put in W? to see the f a,llg. I tell him that I too bav§ been tafeop io, and we have $ good hjugk over ting about tie table, tanished though the closed and the Perkins tells the froman appeared amone a cattle he was herding.

CooKe to Instruct, The adjutant general has issued a general order for the annual school for the officers of the national guard to be held at Ames this winter, The school will be in charge of Inspector General James Bush Lincoln and he will appoint his assistants, among them probably being Col. Harry Wilkins, U. S, A., assistant inspector general of the guard; Col. T. F. Cooke of Algona, inspector of rifle practice, and Col, H. H. Canfield of Boone, chief of engineers and chief signal officer, The practice of holding these schools was inaugurated two years ago by Gen. John R. Prime, then adjutant general, The schools have been held and have proved very beneficial. In the past but one company officer from each of the 48 companies in the state has at' tended as a general rule, but the order this year forces all the officers to attend.

On that occasW the Buffalo Daily Courier gavTS company an extended notice tro* which we clip a couple of parag ra p 8 . Mr. Keene, it may be said, is the last ponderous and robust. Having snent now some 35 years in his profession in the early part of which he S5S almost every kind of part? coS tragedy, and even the clown in the good old days, when an actor's art was supposed to reach to every branch of his profession, and the last 16 years as a Shakespearean star, Mr. Keene has at last ripened, and now in the begin- „_ —.,..,--„«„, ..un uuw iu me oeffin- ning of his maturity is at his best. In by General bl8 farhest staring days, "when within a series of y? uth beat h ' gh ' ¥ was kn °™ as a vigorous actor, and even inclined to the robust school, but experience has toned that tendency down, and todav ne is as quiet and artistic as could be desired of even Edwin Booth. Mr • Keene has mellowed and softensd his work as did Edwin Booth in his latter days. He no longer sacrifices art for applause, a thing which almost ever? actor of any prominence that ever lived has been tempted to do. Even his now famous Duke of Gloster in Richard III is no longer the flashy and tricky stage creation, but is built upon the surer and more lasting be foundation of naturalness and sincerity Mr. Keene has carried this naturalness and simplicity into his private life as well as in his stage work. As a man he is simplicity itself. He has never' found it necessary to resort to the crankiness and queer oddities, too frequently attributed to genius, which are, indeed, either affectations, begot for advertising purposes, or else the result of conceit and self esteem. Mr. Keene is thoroughly an American. He loves his country and its' institutions and takes great interest in all of the affairs concerning its welfare. Another point of interest to the — p»w»»«« \jt. AM v\3L COW IJ\J llUO people of Buffalo in the engagement of Mr. Keene is the fact that he is accompanied by, and is under the management of Charles B. Hanford, who is one of the most promising of the younger candidates for tragic honors. Mr. Hanford is well known in Buffalo, and has always been a favorite, He first attracted attention, and brought forth warm words of praise from the critics of this city during an engagement of Robson and Crane in their production of the "Comedy of Errors," in which he played the part Aegeon. Afterward he appeared with Edwin Booth as Horatio, Baradas, and Rosse, in "Macbeth," and later with Booth and Barret, and with Booth and Modjeska. It was however, when he' appeared in this city with Miss Julia", Marlowe as Malvolio in "Twelfth Nipht," and Jaques in "As You Like It," Mercutio in "Romeo and Juliet," Ingomar, and other similar parts that he received the highest encomiums of the critics. Later he came to Buffalo as a star and presented an elaborate production of "Julius Caesar," in which he appeared as Marc Antony. Last season he appeared at the Star theater in a round of classic characters, which stamped him at once as a fine actor, and in which began to be realized the prediction made for him earlier in his career. EEV, ICTES' NUPTIALS. His Wedding to Miss Sara Josephine Reynolds is a Social Event in Canonsburg, Pa, The following notice of the marriage ' of Rev.
