I It Dead mr feMeeplaa;
The Moline Republican has undertake
a discouraging task of endeavoring to res
suscitate the Business Men's association.
No meeting of the Business Men's as
sociation has been held for some time,
and it is an open question whether it is
dead or Only sleeping. . Secretary Porter
informs us that he had some important
matters concerning new enterprises that
are seeking a location to lay before the
business association had there been a
quorum present. Most of the members
of the association manifest but little in
terest in its meetings or business, though
by the expenditure of a little money and
time much advantage might be derived
from it. There are at the present time
quite a number of Institutions seeking a
new location where they can secure bet
ter shipping facilities or freight rates.
This is true of quite a number of legiti

prises and a little effort migbj-gecufel

tuus they would reap a rich reward for
all their expenditures of time and money
in the busintss association.
Secretary Porter contemplates getting
a meeting of five or six of onr enterpris

may result in some definite good for Mo

There is a veil of n ystery hanging over a

Of the twenty facto -ins in America none

Of these twenty fac'-ories four are in this

them to an imaginary mouth, when up comes

THE HARDIEST VARIETIES OF WHEAT.
Report Mails by Crop Correspondents to
The Farnaers' Review.
In response to tho query put to crop
correspondent at to tho varieties of
winter wheat which best withstand se
vere frosts in their several localities, 01,
in other words, w. rich variety had proved
hardiest, tho ansrwers received indicate
that for frost resi ting qualities the red
bearded varieties have taken the lead.
Tho most popular varieties appear to be
the Mediterranean, a red bearded wheat,
and Fultz, a smooth red wheat. Of the
Mediterranean tliereareno complaints;
a large proportion of the Illinois and In
diana correapouc enta where the tests
have been most severe report that this
wheat has endu-od the winter better
than all other varieties planted. The
re porta are not ' uniform in regard to
Fnltz. In some Canes it held its own
with other varieties; in other cases it
was badly winter killed.
Among the varieties reported to have
endured the winter well we note the fol
lowing among the red bearded sorts:
Mediterranean, valley., velvet chaff,
Seneca, longbeny, Ohio swamp, gypsy
nigger, Hungarian, Red sea, Lancaster,
Odessa and red chaff." Of the smooth
red varieties the following are reported
hardy: Fultz, foole, badger, Ontario
wonder, Hickms n, Egyptian, red May
and Oregon. ' Two smooth varieties of
amber grain are said to be hardy, viz.,
new monarch (Indiana) and German
amtier Missouri). "The Clawson, a
smooth white wheat, appears to be pop

and do not say heiiier it is bearded or

And so President Harrison is very

The idea that the McKinley bill, which

too preposterous to be noticed. When
