We, The Independent party of Lincoln County, South Dakota, stvv. in convention assembled, declare our adherence to the platform^ of principles adopted by the St. Louis convention of 1889, and also the platform of the Independent party as adopted at Huron, on the 9th Jay of July, 1890. We, therefore^ in accordance with the princi ples therein set fourth, declare our determination to vote for the nomination or election of no candidate for the state legislature, who is to or in is at on First, to limit taxation to the necessities of the public welfare. Second, to make the property of railroad corporations taxa- Third, to so amend our assessment laws that the indebtedness of the tax-payer shall be deducted from the value of his property reported for taxation, and that all notes and mortgages be assessec the same as other property, to the owners thereof. Fourth, it is our policy to reduce rates of interest,' to a pa: with the profits of agriculture,' but as the government is controllec in the interests of monopoly, by refusing to give'-the people an am ple supply of currency, that the capitalist mgty charge exorbitant rates of interest, and being without any uniform limit to preven competition for money among the states, we are compelled to yielc to the rates paid in other localities, We accordingly demanc that the contract rate of interest on chattle mortgages and notes, be reduced to 8 per cent and that r~al-estate mortgages be limited tc 6 per cent and that any charge in excess of these rates, work a for feiture of both principle and interest. Fifth, we demand that the salaries of air public officers be lim ited to the amount for which competent men would be willing tc perform the duties of the office.

THE HEW DI0TI0HABY. The answer of the publishers of Ajfeb ter's Unabridged Dictionary to the at empt of pirates to steal their thunder by ssuing cheap phototype reproduction of he antiquated edition of 1847, is the pub lication of anew and completely re-iJition and enlarged edition of the authentic Unabridged, which as A distinguished title bears the name of International. The publishers have expended in the ast ten years over $300,000 in the preparation of this new book before i^su ng the first copy, and the improvements ihe various editions since that o'f 1847 lavo cost over three-fourths of a million dollars for editing, illustrating, type setting and electrotyping alone. This new dictionary is the best book of ts kind in the English language. It un ocks mysteries,, resolves doubts, and de ides disputes. The posession of it and he habit of consulting it will tend to pro note knowledge, literary taste, and social efinemcnt. For every family, the mem ers of which have mastered the art of eading, the purchase of Webster's In ternational Dictionary will prove a irofitable investment, and the more they advance in knowledge and cultivation he more they will appreciate its aid and worth. Abase of the Klmilng Hnblt. The kissing habit has been carried to its greatest extreme among English ^peaking people, and people of other uiood are oten ama .ed and abused by liie universality and cheapness of the ass amonjf the English nations. It is .iot necessarily an argument in its iivor, however, that it is thus found lobe an accompaniment of the'highest civilization, for it may be promptly re ported that vice and crime also in crease with "civilization, and that even civilized and refined people often keep alive barbarous practices inherited from savage ancestors. The kiss, in its proper functions, has a line signifi cance, and may be made the vehicle of the purest emotions, the honest ex pression of legitimate feeling, a greet ing full of genuine, voluntary sym pathy and love. The kissing habit is an abuse and a misuse. It has brought the kiss into disgrace and made it vulgar, cheap, and hypocritical. Be it t.he province of this generation of re .neu ent and education to rescue it from its degraded estate and restore it .o its natural elevated and elevating lace and use in the social economy- So E^ror. Young Mr. Hale is one of the people who think it must be the easiest thing in the world to write a book, or at least a poem. ••You have your desk, your paper and your pens," said he, hopefully, in discussing the sub ect of literature with a more experienced friend, "and there you are!" ••Yes." said the friend, dryly, "but you've omitted one implement of the trade which ought to be in the hands or beginners—an eraser, to rub out what they have written. Now take ihis petition you ha just drawn up for the -Widow's Mit Society.1 Look over the pa er with ine. You haven't explained your object with clearness, and you've repeated „be word 'charity1 nine .times in thirteen lines." j. or a- moment the ambitious young man looked disturbed then suddenly ..is composure returned. "Oli, well," said be, 'I donH con sider that repetition a mistake.

SAWDUST BREAD. Ihe latest Scheme In Adulterating Ootids. "I bave found the cheekiest swindle of the age," said George Lgrd. Mr. Lord is a drummer, who, accprding to the Bridgeport Republican, keeps his eyes open when out on the road, and is greatly interested in matters pertaining to food adulteration. ••It is wood flour," he continued. "Flour actually made of wood and used largely for the purpose of adul teration. It was at Mount Pleasant, on the little Ulster & Delaware rail road, that 1 first saw the mill. White beech trees are used. The wood has no flavor or color and is hard and dry. The bark is peeled off and the logs put on a carriage, which forces them against a cutting machine shaped like a pencil-sharpener except that it has five or six knives in stead of one. These knives revolve at the rate of from 2*0 to iiuO revolt tions a minute and the log is soon cut into fine shavings. After these are thoroughly dried they are put into a hopper and ground the same as wheat or corn. The hour comes out as fine and fragrant as from fine wheat, and is put in tags without any marking on, except a tag with the address, and sent to .New iorK. Where they go here I don't know, but I learned from a man at the mill that there is a pret ty good sale for the stufF. He said that part of it was used as paper stock and in the preparation of lin crusta ualton. That is the ostensible purpose for which it is made, but the workmen told me that a good deal of the stuff went into the hands of con tractors for furnishing Indian rations and that considerable of it also went into the cheap breads sold in the Italian and Hebrew districts in the lower part of the city. Cat* aa IluinorUta. After reading your article on "Cats as Humorists" I am obliged to send you an anecdote of mine, a long-haired black Persian, says a writer in the London Spectator. Living in the sunurbs, wd are infested by cats of all kinds and are perpetually driving them away, aided by the said long haired favorite, who pursues them oil the premises with hair and tail stand ing wildly erect, and presenting a most alarming appearance. We feel that this violent demonstration must be a oke, as the same cat constantly carries the remains of her own dinner about twenty-five yards, across an open space and up some steps, to feed th6 identical animals she has driven off an hour or two previously. Doctoring Dp Photograph. A humorous application of bad ethics in hotogbaphy is to be lound in the Dhotographer in an agricul tural district who had often occasion i.o take negatives of cattle and* horses. He overcame the difficulty so often experienced of the animals whisking their tails and spoiling the exposure by the ingenious expedient of lceep ng a large and varied assortment of negatives of cows and horses' tails, rom which he selected one that matched that of any given specimen. ind printed it in, having previously ^topped out the original that was blurred bv motion. :MmmmmMmm^mMmS$teim Mmmmsmsmmmmmmmmmm TBA0HEBS' ASSOCIATION.
