LAST IN THE LIST.
Yellow Medicine Probably for Bryan
Special to the Globe.
GRANITE FALLS, Minn., Oct. 18.—
Yellow Medicine county has in years
past had two earmarks by which it
could readily be distinguished — the
heavy percentage of Republican votes
it cast, and that it always stood at the
foot of the list of counties constituting
this commonwealth. It retains the lat
ter peculiarity yet, but, alas, the former
has relapsed into "'innocuous desue
tude" and seems likely to stay in that
condition. Great changes have taken
place, and today the combined silver
element claim the county for their side.
The yellow metal gentlemen are equal
ly strong-lunged in showing that the
thing is "dead sure" for thire side, so
an impartial view mey be beneficial to
others beside the Globe's numer
ous readers. The Democrats, as a
party, are conceded to not be very
heavily interested — to all intents and
purposes they have fused with the Pops,
though there is no formal contract to
that effect, and some utterly ignore
the implied deal and are going to vote
with the high tariff, foreigner-pays-the
freight party, and a few will vote for
the veterans. Gens. Palmer and Buck
ner. There were 364 votes cast for
Cleveland four years ago, and there are
probably about 250 straight Democratic
votes now, of which Mr. Bryan will get
fully 240 and the worthy generals above
mentioned the remainder, except such
as take to the woods. Weaver, as Pop
candidate for president, polled 379 votes,
and it is almost sure that the party has
doubled if not trebled its strength in
the past four years. I believe a con
servative estimate of the Pop strength
is fully 1,000 votes. This, with the
straight Democratic and disaffected
Republican vote should give a total
vote of about 1,350 for silver and Bryan.
Opposed to this is the Republican claim
of 800 for Bryan and 1,400 for McKinley,
as made by the Republican Journal, in
its last issue. There will certainly be
more than 2,200 votes cast this year,
so, possibly, the Journal prognosticator
is going to let the Prohibitionist candi
date or the generals above alluded to
have the remainder — fully 300, it is sure,
but it is hardly probable, as the Prohi
bitionist vote, whatever it is, will go
Searly solid for Bryan. In this strong
ly Scandinavian county Senator Nel
con, when running for governor, re
ceived 1,195 votes and Owen 1,004, Beck-
er getting 86 only, the Democratic
strength going largely to Owen. To
recapitulate: In 1892 Harrison received
-"" 911 votes, Cleveland 364, Weaver 379; in
1894, Nelson, for governor, 1,195, Owen,
1,004, and Becker 86. The estimated
vote for '96 is fully 2,500, divided as fol
lows: McKinley, 1,150; Bryan, 1,350;
Lind, 1,400; Clough, 1,050. For congress,
McCleary, in '94, received 1,172, Baker
92, and Lang 953. Estimated for '96:
McCleary, 1,250; Frank Day, 1,250, with
from 25 to 50 votes scattering.

Special to the Globe.
HENDERSON, Minn., Oct. 18.— In
1894 Sibley county gave Nelson a plu
rality of 481 votes; for state senator it
gave the Republican candidate a plu
rality of 270, and for representative
the Republican plurality was 358. In
1892 Cleveland received a plurality of
255, and the vote for governor, con
gressman and representative gave the
Democrats a plurality falling short of
or slightly exceeding that given for
president. The determining factor in
the present campaign in this county is
the fusion of the Democrats and Popu
lists on every office on every ticket and
the money issue. Estimating the re
sult of fusion on the basis of the Re
publican victory of 1594, the Democrats
would receive majorities for the offices
of governor, state senator and repre
sentative of 271, 125 and 124. Basing the
estimate on the Democratic victories of
1892, the Democrats would have ma- j
Jorities for the offices of president, gov- |
ernor, congressman and representative
respectively of 600, 786, 564 and 689.
But the effect of the money issue on
these results is uncertain, and can "only
be guessed at from the work that is
being done. Out of the five county
newspapers, the silverites have the
three most influential ones on their
side, but their opponents have had
more stump speakers in the field. Party
lines have been broken here as else
where, and the number of prominent
bolters on either side is nearly the

CAMBRIDGE, Minn., Oct. 18.— As an
estimate of the political sentiment of
Isantl county I will say that it has al
ways been strongly Republican. Nel-
Bon's plurality two years ago (1894)
over Owen was 548, with a total vote
for governor of 1661 votes and 1718 bal
lots cast altogether. In 1892 Nelson
received 619 votes over the People's
party candidate's 333, giving the for
mer a plurality of 286; but in that year
the Prohibitionists were strong, cast-
Ing a vote of 203. This makes Nelson's
plurality for 1894 362 in excess of that
of four years ago. Thds year matters
are quite complicated in the county,
but it is safe to assert that McKinley
will receive a majority in this county
of between 550 and 600 and Gov. Clongh
will receive a plurality of about the
same size, if not greater, as he is a
former resident of this county, and two
years ago, as a candidate for lieuten
ant governor, ran way ahead of Nel-
Ben. F. C. Stevens will receive a plur
ality of about the same size as Mc-
Kinley. The county ticket is consider
ably mixed up at present, there being
several independent candidates.but the
Republicans will carry the majority of
the offices. There are few, if any,
Democrats in this county.

WORTHINTON. Minn., Oct 18 —
This village of 2,r>00 people is the -oun
ty seat ot this (Nobles) county. Meet
ings are held almost every night, and
several eminent speakers have told
the voters which Is right and which is
wrong. A school house campaign has
been inaugurated and much enthusi
asm prevails. The vote of this county
for 1892 was as follows: Harrison,
886; Cleveland, 663; Weaver, 305; Bid
well Prohibitionist, 137; total, 1,991.
Your correspondent believes that this
vote will be increased to 2,700 votes
this year. On account of fusion this
year there will be but two candidates
whose vote will be anything than scat
tering. It is understood that both par
ties have completed a poll of the coun
j ty. and are both well satisfied with re
| suits. From the most reliable infor
mation obtainable it is claimed by each
party for the ticket they represent by
a small maority. which indicates that
it may be close. The goldites, how
ever, refuse to give any figures, while
the sllvorites claim the county for
Bryan by 200 majority, and that Lind
will have from 50 to 100 more than
Bryan. The number of Democrats who
will vote for McKinley will be largely
overbalanced by Republicans who will
vote for Bryan, as a large number of
prominent ones are supporting and
working for him.
SILVER CLOUD IN MARTIN.

Special to 'the Globe.
FAIRMONT, Minn., Oct. 18.— Never
in Martin county has there been so
much interest taken in politics as in
this present campaign. The county has
always been Republican by a plurality
of from 400 to 800. In 1894 Gov. Nel
son's plurality was 866. In 1892 his plu
rality was 405. This year the Demo
crats and Populists have combined and
will give a majority for John Lind for
governor. I come to this conclusion
from the following facts: In 1892 Gov.
Nelson received 1,044, Lawler 639, Don
nelly 143, Dean 117. Adding the votes !
of the last three candidates, we have
S9D. Subtracting that from the Nelson
vote of 1,044 and 145 is left. We have
twenty townships in Martin county,
and it is safe to say that at least there
is an average of ten Republican votes
to the township that will vote for John
Lind for govenor. Quite a number of
silver clubs have been formed in the
county and they are very active. Lind
and Day will receive about the same
vote in the county, while the presiden
tial candidate will fall below them. In
county matters the vote will be mixed.
Some Republicans and some Demo
crats will be elected.

ALEXANDRIA, Minn., Oct. 18.—
Douglas county will cast about 3,100
votes and will give a majority for the
full Republican ticket. In 1892 Harri
son had 1,315; Cleveland, 533; AVeaver,
.4fc4; Bidwell, 252, giving Harrison an
actual majority of only 46. That same
year Nelson, for governor, had 1,303;
Donnelly, 434; Lawler, 434; Dean, 234.
In 1892 Nelson, for governor, had 1,546;
Owen, 1,200; Becker, 197, and Hilleboe,
95. It will be seen that the Democrats
lost 237 votes, almost exactly the num
ber gained by Mr. Nelson, and his chief
gain came from that source, while the
Populists took most of the Prohibition
vote. Mr. Nelson's majority was but
54. This year the Republicans will
make a considerable gain and many
claim the county for McKinley by fully
500 votes. A very conservative esti
mate, however, is as follows: McKin
ley, 1,775; Bryan, 1,325; Clough, 1,650;
Lind, 1,450; Eddy, 1,800; Lommen, 1,225;
Heiberg, 75. In 1894 Eddy had 1,542;
McLean, 205; Boen, 930, and Koon, 301,
giving Eddy an actual majority of 106.
The gain this year will come from the
Democrats, the very large majority of
that vote going for McKinley with a
considerable gain from the Populists
themselves, while there will be a good
increase in the total vote.

BLUE EARTH CITY, Minn., Oct. 18.
— Faribault county is solid for honest
I money and the straight Republican
ticket. In 1894 this county gave Nel
son a plurality of 1,543 and a majortiy i
! over all of 1,012. In 1892 it gave Har
rison a majority over Cleveland of 900
even. The most conservative men }

say his vote will equal that of Knute I
I Nelson two years ago, which was 363 |
; more than Harrison received in 1892.
! The former Democrats who will this
| year vote for McKinley will equal the
| free silver Republicans who propose to
) vote for Bryan. There is but very lit-
I tie Populism in this county, and two
j years ago only 202 Prohibition votes
I were cast for Hilleboe. That vote will
I be lighter this year than ever, the
money question overshadowing the
liquor question. This vote will be di
vided between the silver and sound
I money parties. The Republicans
j have an exceptionally strong local
I ticket in the field, which will materi

Special to the Globe.
DODGE CENTER, Minn., Oct. 18.—
There will be somewhat of a breaking
up of old party lines in Dodge county
in November, unless present indica
tions fail. This county has always
been very strongly Republican, as the
following statistics demonstrate: In
1594 the following 'vote was cast for
governor: Knute Nelson, 1,627; George
L. Becker, 334; S. M. Owen, £49; Hans
Hilleboe, 85. Nelson's majority over
all other candidates was 659. In 1892
the vote was as follows: Nelson, 1,159;
Lawler, 541; Donnelly, 375; Dean, 130.
Nelson's maority over all, 113. In the
same year the presidential vote was
as follows: Harrison, 1,220; Cleveland,
563: Weaver, 791; Bidwell, 147.
Clough is not nearly so popular in
this county as was Nelson, and in ad
dition to that fact there is some dis
affection in the Republican ranks in
regard to county offices. This will
probably have its influence in the
j state and national election.
McKinley will no doubt have a plu
rality, as will also Clough, but the lat
ter's plurality will not be very large.

CROOKSTON, Minn., Oct. IS— Polk

in the county indicate that the Demo

almost to a man. The changes from
silver to gold and vice versa will about
balance each other. The total vote of

Ithe household I
TB£! VSE OF HUE.
Some Important Hints an to the
( ookiiiK of It — itM food Valne.
Perhaps the moßt important and
profitable cereal to the housewife is
clean, white, wholesome, and easily di
gested rice. In whatever form rice may
be served it makes an attractive and
dainty dish, and is welcomed as heart
ily by the robust schoolboy as it is by
the delicate invalid. "When properly
cooked rice should be snowy white,
boiled until it is mealy and dry and
every grain separate. A Southern deal
er in the cereal says that to get the
best results rice must first be well
washed, rubbing the grains between
the hands to remove the floury coating,
which is liable to hold the grains to
gether when the rice is cooked. Have
a deep vessel two-thirds full of water,
which has been salted and is boiling,
put in the washed and drained rfce
gradually so as not to stop the boiling,
let it cook undisturbed twenty minutes.
Then place a colander in a saucepan
and turn the rice into it, cover the
colander and let the pan remain by the
fire. This serves a double purpose, al
lowing the rice to drain and also to
steam. Each grain should then be
swollen to its largest proportion and
dry "like unto a first-class mealy po
Three things are to be remembered
in cooking rice in this manner; first,
have the water boiling; second, the rice
to be undisturbed during the boiling
process, so that the grains may not be
broken, and, finally, have it thorough
ly drained. Rice cooked In this man
ner is served with roasted meats for a
vegetable, and also forms the founda
tion for a multitude of toothsome
In Japan, where rice is much used,
a pot with a close-fitting cover is kept,
'for cooking it in, and only lust water
enough is used to prevent the rice from
sticking to' the pot. Cover, and keep
ever a moderate fire, and steam until
nearly done, then remove the cover so
that steam and moisture are able to
escape, and rack.
The mode of cooking rice in India
to use as a vegetable with meats is
thus: Take half a pound of washed
rice and boil it in one quart of milk
until tender, chop one clove of garlic
fine, add it to the cooked rice with
cne tablespoonful of onion, one tea
rpoonful of parsley and three of green
pepper, all finely chopped, two table
spoonfuls of Parmesan cheese, two
beaten eggs and a small cup of milk.
Thoroughly mix these ingredients with
the rice before turning the whole into
a buttered baking dish, put some bits
of butter over the top, place the dish
in the oven, and bake until the top
13 a nice rich brown.
Another manner of boiling rice when
desired for a breakfast cereal or for
plain boiled rice for a dessert to be
eaten with sauce or cream and sugar
it as follows: Wash one cup of rice
end put It into a saucepan or kettle
that has a tightly fitted cover; add
cne cup of milk, two cups of water,
r.nd a salt spoonful of salt. Cover the
vessel and put at the side of the fire,
where the rice cannot burn, but will
simmer until it is tender and all the
Pquid has been absorbed by the rice.
This is richer and more nourishing
than when cooked with water alone.
When raisins are desired with boiled
rice add a cupful to the rice when pre
paring it to put over the fire.
Baked Rice — If not convenient to
have the room on the top of the stove
for boiling rice, then try baking it.
Put one small cup of washed rice with
one quart of milk, half a teaspoonful
of salt, a dash of pepper, and a little
chopped parsley, if it is liked. Butter
a pudding dish and put in the rice and
milk, drop a few bits of butter over the
milk and place the dish in a slow oven
and bake two hours. If it browns too
fast cover the dish until nearly done.
Serve very hot with a meat course.
Parched rice makes a change, and is
excellent with broiled meats. Use rice
that has been boiled in water and well
drained; turn onto a platter, and when
cold separate the grains carefully with
a fork. Place a spider over the fire
and put in enough butter when melted
to cover the bottom of the dish. When
the butter becomes hot 4>ut in a little
of the rice at a time and cook it a del
icate brown, tossing it lightly with a
fork so not to break the grains. Drain
on brown paper at the mouth of the
oven. Heap the prepared rice in the
center of a small platter and sprinkle
a little chopped parsley over the top.
Coral rice is also nice with meats.
Have one and one-half cups of stock,
cne cup of stewed and strained toma
toes, and the same amount of washed
rice; put these ingredients together in
a saucepan, cover, and let them cook
thirty minutes; then remove the cover
and place the pan at the back of the
fire and allow the moisture to escape
for twenty minutes. This rice, heaped
in a mound in the middle of a hot plat
ter and broiled chops placed around It,
forms an attractive-looking dish. Or
the rice may be moulded for a border
and warmed-over meats put in the
Rice balls are excellent with fried
chicken. To make them, stir into
cold boiled rice a little melted butter
and some milk until you have a thick
paste; arid some salt and a little
chopped parsley; blend together with
a beaten egg. Roll these into balls
with the palms of the hands. Pry the
balls in hot fat. Place them around

chicken has been arranged, and alter
nate each ball with a slice of crisp

Rice puddings have been known for
ages, but some of the following may
be a little different from the old rules:
To make meringue rice pudding: Boil
one cup of rice in one quart of milk
until it is tender, remove from the fire
and stir in the yolks of three eggs
that have been previously beaten: add
sugar to suit the taste, a pinch of
salt, the grated rind of one lemon and
a little of the juice: turn this into a
buttered pudding dish; make a merin

Mlnee-Meat for Pin Money.
To be sure, many housekeepers make their
own mince-meat. But It is also true that
numberless housewives who do, would gladly
dispense with the extra labor if they should
chance to find some maker of mince who
would furnish to customers a quality that was
truly unsurpassed, and made with neat hands,
and In neat and wholesome surroundings.
This lint of undertaking is one that may be
profitably entered into, and will bring its
own reward in dollars and cents. There are
any number of good receipts; but a woman
may weave into her work a little of her own
orlgirallty, concoct a m'nee preparation, whose
combination may be known only to herself,
and build up a reputation that will event
ually bring her *yen more customers than
she can supply. And, without doubt, there
are housewives among all readers of house
keeping magazines who are turning anxiously
to all pages which suggest remunerative
things whereby to make a few extra dollars.
Some of them, I hope, will at least try making
mince-meat. It to home work; work that any
painstaking woman may do perfectly; work
that will always fcflnd sale, and from which
a very neat little profit may be made. As
well as suggestions to offer. I have also proof,
and the proof is this:
A relative of orirs obtained a snug little in
come from the making of this article, and
until compelled t6 give up the business she
kept It up, making more money every year
that fihe offered her wares for sale. This, of
course, spoke will for the quality of her
make of mince. She was known to be neat
ness personified, strictly honest, and always
amiable and pleasant to all who came to her
door. She would no more put into her mince
meat inferior fruit, low grade or unwholesome
meats for her customers than she would for
herself. It could be always depended upon
in every respect. At the outßet of her career,
she had no more intention of making a busi
ness of it than any other housewife when
making a "batch" of the mince for her
own family; Sadie was simply providing a
luxury for her own folks. But she had made
a great jar of it. In fact, a winter's supply,
as she supposed. But for once she had made
a miss in her calculations, for a neighbor
coming in just as she had finished it and
was preparing to put it away, begged the
privilege of buying a portion.
She confided to Sadie that much as she,
herself, and family loved mince pies, she did
most dreadfully despise the work of making
mince meat, and added that if she knew
where she eoutd ivy a. genuinely good brand,
that she knew to be cleas.r»he. would newer
make a gallon of it. but would buy it when
ever wanted; and that would ba often, she
added. Sadie sold her what she wanted,
telling her that of course she should have to
have a little profit for the making. And then
she began to think. The outcome of it was,
that in a *hort time she was actually mak
ing the mince pie material for sale, and ad
vertised the fact. It was soon noised about
that she made the most delicious mince meat,
and sold it at reasonable rates, and soon
customers came flocking about her. In her
years of maidenhood she had been self-sup
porting as a seamstress. When she became
housekeeper and wife, her little income had
gona with her girlhood. And, though very
happy, she yet longed for the independence
of her own making; and right here was her
opportunity. She made the best of it, too,
replenishing her purse, and became in right
earnest her husband's helpmate.
She was an expert buyer of household sup
plies. She knew where to find veritable "bar
gains," and this knowledge stood her well in
hand. In a very little time she increased her
profits without asking more than the first
price set for her. mince meat. She selected
personally all her meats, and woe to the
market man**hat lever dared to send her else
than the very thing she picked out and or
dered ; back it would.' go, and he never cared
to repeat the operation whereby he had hoped
to make a bit better profit "to himself, by sub
stituting inferior pieces of meat, that he con
sidered "good enough for mince meat, sure.
Everything that went into her mince meat
was as carefully «elected as the meats, with
the result that the article of commerce that
went from her Mtchen door was perfect of
its kind. She did not deliver goods; her
patrons came or *ent for what they wanted.
When custom warranted the expense, she
ordered her goods in large quantities, thus
securing the discount that large sales always
give the buyer.
HINTS FOIt THE HOUSEHOLD.
Table mats, onr which to place hot dishes,
are no longer us«d, as the heavy felt under
cloth is intended to be sufficient protection
I for the table; but many housewives have
found the top of their handsomely polished
tables defaced by the marks made by the hot
dishes. If a sheet of asbestos paper is put
under the felt cloth the table will not be In
jured in the least from this cause. At teas
or luncheons, when the polished table is used
with doylies Instead of a cloth, asbestos mats
may be covered with prettily embroidered
doylies for the hot dishes. One of these mats
covered with a doylie. which should be larger
I than the mat, is much prettier to use than
j any teapot stand that can be purchased.
