Lots of people d. . not know that Du

of her wheat r ceipt. If my memory is
not at fault, she sho s a footing of o2,-732,02-1

give other figures with which I am thor
oughly conversant, but space forbids.
1 wish that the down caster could
know the west as I know it. I wish the
southerner could know the north as he
(should know it, and I wish the north
erner could know the south as it would
pay him to know it. Ignorance of the
actual possibilities of this little republic
of ours is no do ibt keeping many a young
man and many a rusty gold dollar back
in the gloom and fungi of idleness.
Instead of faying, "Young man, go
west," I wonl 1 say, "Young man, find
out more about the country you live in."
Every day old jr. Iges and merchants
and divines and bj;!.-(-rs are saying goodby
to a busy life and :, vain world.
Young man, fit yourself to follow the
grip and fill tl e place of a great man.
You can do it, but you'd rather take at
twenty the leisure which would be duo
you at fifty if j ou succeeded. You want
to retire from business lief ore you have
had any business. Yon want to lead a
double life on eleven dollars per week.
You are too apt to want to be a roocy cn
the money you ought to pay your laun
dress and a debauchee on thirty-five dol
lars per month.
Leave the ho ne nest, my dear young
man. Leave i- more in sorrow than in
anger. Study lirst the growing towns of
tho Union and then plunge in where you
like it best. D lluth is a go jd place. So
are many otheri. Here 1 met a bov I
knew in Wyoming, working then in t!io
boiler shops for ;;..V per day. Nov. lie
makes thirty oi forty dollars jier day.
Duluth isespt cially proud of iter beauti
ful school buildings and her wn-ric-rful
school facilities. I'ublic schools re cer
tainly superior i;i tho west. They are
more progressive. I never knew what
progress in this line meant till I had a
chance to comp ire the eastern and west
ern public Bcho )ls. Duluth tore down a
f 30,000 school h nse not long ago in order
to erect on the i ante ground a new one
costing a quarter of a million dollars.
And that is only one of her many hand
some school ho ises.
West Superior is tho Brooklyn of Du
luth, and a thriving city in which mil
lions have been made within a few years.
Ashland is a very delightful city at tho
terminus of se eral roads, all of which
have yet other termini elsewhere. A
railroad likes to have several termini, so
that if one should give out or be disabled
trains could be run just the same.
This country is a wealthy one. The
Bawd us t town ii sneered at by the iron
town when tho mills are idle, and then
the sawdust tc wn jeers the iron town
when the mines are filled with water
and when a gn at ,big dividend paying
mine becomes a mighty cistern curbed
up with assessments.
It is a healthful region too. I got
ome more heal h here. I look now 187
years younger than my published por
traits, and a rof lish little twinkle may
be seen in my eye. All day I go about
linging merrily and skittish horses be
come unmanageable and run away and
jump into the hike.
The air is extremely bracing, the resin
ous quality of the pine scented, blue,
crisp air is esjiecially adapted to the
rapid oxyginat.on and acceleration of
the circulation (See Hilliard on Torts,
Vol. ii, p. 187).
Electricity pervaded everything. You
walk across the carpeted room and touch
the gas jet or .he steam radiator and a
big, big spark explodes at the end of
your finger. Some one told me I could
light the gas hat way. I never had

That is why I am wearing a big rag on

It was at Hudson that we used to bet
on the date when navigation would open
in the spring. There were no railroads
then. When the first boat whistled in
the spring people left their business, and
sometimes broke off in the midst of an
eloquent prayer full of statistics and
timely gossip and mere mention, news
summary, baseball news and household
hints in order to run down to the laud
ing and see the first boat come in.
Messrs. Coon fc Piatt kept a grain
warehouse then ou the landing, and one
day in winter they made a liet on tho
date when the first boat would come up
the river to Hudson. It consisted of a
pair of fifteen dollar boots. One day in
early spring Zeph Piatt was alone in the
warehouse, and ho thought he would go
up in the cupola and with his glass take
n squint down tho lake on the sly. He
was a fat man, and when he got up to
the top of the stairs he found that he had
arrived there two or three minutes ahead
of his breath. Finally he secured it,
however, and hastily running his bin
ocular tube along the horizon he saw,
just below Catfish bar, the dark smoko
and gray steam of the first boat.
It meant a pair of boots on him, or
rather on Coon at his expense. He
turned slightly pale, then he started up
town to find Coon and hedge, which ho
did by paying him ten dollars. But ho
smiled when he thought how ha had
But the boat did not succeed in getting
up that day, nor for a week afterward.
She struck ico at Catfish bar and had to
stop there, so that Zeph lost his ten dol
lars, to say nothing of the cigars and
6arsaparilla which he bought for those
whose silence he so dearly prized.
Byron J. Price, the president of the
Wisconsin Press association, also lives at
Hudson. He had for many years a
checkered career as a horticulturist and
pomologist. He tried to grow the water
melon, and succeeded very well, but
when the melona got ripe other hands
gathered them and other chins than his
were bathed in their cold, sweet juice.
This made Byron hot, as we say in
America, and he worried over it and
Ciime near backsliding at one time. Ho
tried planting a bulldog in each hill, but
that only improved the quality of the
melon and made them the more desirablo
to those whom he referred to in his paper
as "fiends in human form."
One summer he said to himself: "I
will try it once more and see if 1 can get
a good ripe watermelon for my own use,
just this time. Just one melon that 1
rose myself. If I fail 1 will try it no
more forever." He knew pretty well
who took his melons. They did not
deny it. It was a gang of footpads from
the high school, headed by Will Taylor
and Fagau Starr. They took the melons
not maliciously, but liecan.se a cool, ripe
melon in the dark of the moon had been
prescribed for them by their physician, j
That year, however, Byron did not tell
any ono his scheme. He planted the
melons in the middle of his popcorn
patch. But he did not tell anybodj-. He
did not even put it in the Clear Lake
Herald, which has always been regarded
as the best medium of hushing up any-

thing that you could pick out. People
who wished to unburden their minds of
any great secret, with the assurance that
it would go no further, nsed to rrint it
in the Clear Lake Herald.
August came and the melons were
ripe. Also Will Taylor, the head of the
gang, was to go with his father to Mar
seilles for four years. Byron felt first
rate. He gloated over his melons, and
decided to give one to Will as the train
pulled out. He did so. It was a good
melon, and as the juice ran up Will's
sleeve he looked reproachfully at Mr.
"Well, I've got the best of you this
year," said Mr. Price as the train moved
away. "I don't mind whispering in your
ear, Will, that I planted them in the
middle of the cornfield."
The next morning there was not left a

Mr. Price was greatly saddened by
this, and it was years before he could
even look at a dish of preserves made of
watermelon rinds without sobbing. Now
he raises a few since Will Taylor is in
Washington, and the only precaution he
takes is to put up a notice reading as
