Wash Ing his hands, he started on foot to the house of his brother, who lived three miles distant, meeting several neighbors on the way and speaking to them pleasantly as if nothing had Happened.

Marshall, Mo., Feb. t The White cappers are getting in some work in Saline county. Wednesday night about 13 o'clock eleven of them rode up to the residence of William McGin nis near Crutcher, and when the door was opened had quite a tussle with Harry and Walter McGinnia, their father being away from home. The )oys fought manfully, but they suc ceeded in dragging" Walter into the yard, who, after a desperate fight for liberty, escaped iuto the woods and took refuge in a coal mine they had been working. The community is worked up over the affair, and arrests no doubt will follow. The McGinnia brothers are nephews of the late Sen ator J. C McGinnis of St Louis. TRADE REVIEW. January 8aw the 1 owent I'rloea for AU Commodities Ever Known. New York. Feb. 4. R. G. Dun's weekly review of trade says: "Things look better near the close of this week, because it is believed that a new loan will be negotiated. There was need for relief, since January closed with the heaviest gold exports ever made in any month and the heaviest withdrawals of gold from the treasury, $43,468,108, the hope of a new loan being the one thing which has lifted prices during the past few days. January leaves be hind it the lowest average of E rices for all commodities ever nown: for cotton, iron and its pro ducts, wool and silver, the lowest monthly average ever known, and for wheat, a range above the mini mum, but yet declining rapidly to ward that point. Industrial opera tions have not materially diminished, though it has been a disappointing month because the revival expected has not come. The continuing drift of money to New York shows scanty commercial demand in the interior and no improvement appears here in commercial loans. In short, business is still waiting and finds reason for hesitation in the condition of thf treasury. THE ELBE DISASTER. Official Advice Show That 333 Persons Were Drowned In the Disaster. New York,.

Among the familiar faces that we this mouth present to our readers, perhaps none is more so, to swine breeders gener ally, than the one we present above. The likeness is a most excellent one of that veteran swine breeder, J. V. Wolfe, of Liucoln, Nebraska. Mr. Wolfe has the native modesty of most swine breeders, but says there are, at least, three things in which his experience has shown that he exercised great judgment. The first was his early foresight in selecting Indi ana as bis birthplace. The second in selecting Nebraska as the place to raise hogs, and lastly, but not leastly, in select ing the Poland China as the breed to raise. lie admits that be is alder than his ac tions and feelings would indicate, but is a little diffident about giving exact dates.' He thinks, however that his first impression of mundane life was received about October 7th, 1833, in the little town of Merom, then the county seat of Sullivan county. His father, who at that time was reap ing the harvest of enjoying all the emolu ments of county recorder, clerk and auditor, as well as performing the func tions of village post master, seeing an embryo farmer and hog raiser in his son, resigned all his offices and their emolu ments, which consisted principally in meager fees, paid in legal tender of the realm, such as hickory nuts, coon skins, pototoes, onions and slippery elm bark, and moved on a farm, where J. V., and eight other children, grew up amidst the swine, the equine and several other kine, enjoying all the necewHuries and hoiiih ol the luxuries of farm lifeupnn the Wabash includingevery variety of Wabash shakes In the fall and winter, when there was nc corn to husk, wood to draw, corn to shel and mill, or strayed stock to look up, he attended the country school. The life of the farmer then had the ainount of same ness about it that the life of a United States treasurer has now. The farmer had to keep grinding out something to keep up the family "reserve." Iu 1851 Nr. Wolfe passed, he thinks, for the first time, beyond the boundary of his native county, on his way, in a lumber wairon, to Bloomington to attend the State University, where in 1857, he completed his course of study as laid down iu the college curriculum and sigh ed, "it is finished." But as he has since learned his real education was only be gun. The next twenty years of his life was spent as teucher, lawyer, legislator and county treasurer. In regard to the manner in which hedischnrged his duties of the various positions filled it is suffi cient to state that no legal obstructions were thrown iu his way when in the fall of 1871 became to Nebraskaand bought his present farm, four miles southeast of Lincoln, to which he moved his family the next April. The primary object of the move was the raising and educating of children, of which he then had four, and to which three more have been added; and as a means to an end he began raising hogs. In the cur with his house hold effects he shipped a trio of what was then known as Magie hogs. From these, and a few grade sows purchased of neighbors, he began and continued to raise and feed hojrs for the general mar ket at a fair profit, for eight or ten years. But county and state fairs soon sprang up and Mr. Wolfe discovered, on the fair grounds, better hogs than he could find upon his farm, and believing as he still does, that the best are none too good for him, he concluded to get and keep the best. He bought, about ten years ago, his first pedigreed sow, and laid the tond ation of are gistered herd. He became active and progressive as a breeder, but he has never become a professional ex hibitor, believing that a breeding animal is permanently injured by even oue fitting for the show rinjr. He has made the de velopment of his favorite breed a close study from a scientific standpoint. He has added many valuable articles to our swine literatnre, such us his paper on "Professional Swine Breeding," "Fancy Points," "New Blood and Blue Blood," "Pedigree or Individual Merit, Which?" and several others, which he is being urged to collect and print in pamphlet for the benefit of the craft. He is a stockholder in both the "American" and "Standard" record companies, and is, at this time, president of the former. His career in the swine field has been marked. His publfc sales, of which he has held eight, have been moBt successful, his opinions are much sought and his judg ment greatly relied upon by youug breed ers. His library contains iull sets of the American Standard Records, and he is a reader of nearly all the swine journals. He has secured space for this year iu tli Western Swine Breeder, and his herd will be heard from ths coining season. He has recently associated with him his son, J. V.Wolfe, jr., who will be found "u chip of the old block." The means used is accomplishing the end sought, the edu cation of his children, for one by one the are receiving from the state universitj their sheep skins, but retaining the Wolti skin; and they are entering the battle o life, for which their father, assisted by tin Poland-China hog, has so thoroughly prepared them.
