The trouble In Cuba which termi nated last Saturday with the resigna tion of President Palma and the as sumption of temporary control by Secretary of War Taft who was sent down there to bring the warring fac tions together, brings the Cuban question up under entirely new con ditions. That President Roosevelt wa3 and Is sincere in his efforts to keep that unhappy island under home rule none will question, hut the factions are wider apart today than when Secre tary Taft went there hoping to secure concessions from the antagonistic parties by which he could bring about peace and a recognition of the Palma government. Secretary Taft hopes to bring peace by a new election. This he may do for a time, but one element or an other will rebel against any govern ment In power just as they did Pal ma's/and the United States would have to Intervene again. A great majority of the Cubans want the American flag to float over the island, and this majority includes all foreign interest^ as well as the educated and progressive elements. Leading Cubans are firmly of the opinion that there can be no lasting peace only under the American flag, and this seems to be the only reason' able and sensible solution of the question. Those who have studied the mixed blood governments of cen tral America fully realize that the day for home rule in Cuba has passed. When the Cuban patriot Palma oouldn't hold the conflicting elements together, no other Cuban need make the attempt with the least hope of suocess. Cuba under the United States, or as a state of the Union, would pros per and develop and become one of the most productive islands in the world, and the United States may as well settle the question now as later. The warring elements down there are all anxious to come in under the protecting arm of Uncle Sam but they will never trust each other or submit to a government by faotion. A great majority of the population have been born and raised under revolutionary conditions and a revo lution to them means plunder and robbery. Their patriotism is of a partisan brand and means nothing so far as love of country goes. Cuba must belong to the United States if not taken now it will be when another revolution breaks out, but this Is the time to save that glorious island from farther revolu tion and plunder. Chancy tor Speaker. The Yankton Press and Dakota pays Mr. Chaney the following comp llment with reference to his promin ence as a candidate for speaker at the coming session: Hon. M. J. Chaney of Wakonda has again been nominated by the repub licans of Clay county as state repre sentative, this being the third time that he has been chosen to serve his constituents in that capacity. This approval of his efficient service is un doubtedly pleasing to him In a per sonal sense, and ne lias a host of Mends all over the state who read bf this added recognition by his home people with a sense of satisfaction. It wnot unlikely that Mr. Chaney will be prominent for speaker of the house at the coming giwldi ...jepSM session. His name was prominently mentioned In that connection just before the or ganization of the session or 1905, and throughout the state he is considered as an experienced and efficient legis lator who having become one of the strong and conservative leaders -f the boon, would be most acceptable as officer. He would bring to the office an intimate know ledge of the work which would de volve upon him and he Is possessed of the requisite ability to make his ser vices of real value. Select the Seed Corn. The time is now approaching when the farmer who wishes to improve his corn should make a careful selec tion of his seed. Probably the best time to make the selection is from the 1st to the 10th of October, going through Ills Held carefully inspecting the stalks on which desirable ears grow. The character of the stalk, that Is, its size and shape and the de gree of maturity which It has main tained, are the important points. The place occupied by the ear on the stalk is not unimportant. It is not desirable to have an ear too high up, for in that case the wind is more likely to blow It down, nor too low down, for in that case it is inconven ient to husk. Select the ear from a vigorous, strong, stalk, well out of the way of frost, with a well shaped well matured ear. If you do tills you cannot go amiss. The largest ear is not always the most desirable. Ears that are late in maturing should be rejected. Nor is a too early matur ing ear desirable. It takes time to take a sack on your shoulder and till it with the right kind of seed corn but it will pay any man who Is desir ous of increasing the yield and qual ity of corn to make this careful selec tion. The next important point is drying out the corn when selected. There are various methods. Some tie the ears together and hang them from a clothesline or across the limb of a tree. Others take ten or a dozen ears, tying them with some binder twine so that each ear hangs separate and horizontal and hang them up by the side of the barn where they are in the sunshine, have free access to the air, and are out of the way of stock or fowls. The important thing is to dry out the corn in the open air as soon as possible. Don't put this newly picked corn in a pile, nor any place where there Is no free circula tion of air. Corn picked the tirst week in October should be quite thoroughly dried out before any severe freezing occurs, and if there Is any danger of freezing weather any time in October it should be taken into the house. Artitlcal heat may be needed to com plete the drying process, and can be safely used after the corn is well air dried, but should not be used when the corn is first brought in from the Hold, as it may rSKSS it start to grow. Corn treated in this way can stand a good deal of freezing weather during the winter, and the farmer can safely bank on it. Note the quality of corn, from a study both of the stalk and the ear, and then maintain its ger minating powers, and you will have seed corn that you can bank on next May. We don't know any better way the farmer can spend a few days the tirst week in October than selecting seed corn according to the above sug gestions. Always select three or four times as many as you intend to plant. iiev. Nuiamedal Surprised. Last Sunday the congregation at Lands church, down In Norway town ship, was unusually large, many members being present from Grand alley and Trefoldigshed congrega tions, and Pastor Nummedal deliver ed an eloquent sermon, inspired by the presence of so many visitors. After the morning service the peo ple gathered at the parsonage and en joyed a piculc dinner, and during this pleasant passtlme President Tuve of August&na College proceeded to give Pastor Nummedal a genuine surprise. President Tuve has a way of saying things so nicely and so pleasantly that everyone in that big picnic party thought he was going to pres ent them all with a Golden Fleece, but by the time he got around to the point he was seeking he turned to Rev. Nummedal and presented him with a donation of $409.25, an offering from the members of the three con gregations there assembled. It was a delightful moment to all as they watched the recipient of their esteem look around In astonishment and try to get himself in shape to respond to the generous surprise bestowed. He did so, however, eloquently and feel ingly, and then the picnic proceeded to the end and the members of the three churches separated for their homes knowing that Christianity is deeper than the requirements that calls one to a seat in a house of wor ship. it was a generous gift but the con gregations of the three churches named are noted for their broad and liberal Christian spirit. Other church organizations could follow their ex ample with profit and pleasure. Commissioner Conventions. The county commissioner conven tion for the second district assembled in the court house on Tuesday, Oct. 2, Hans Brynjulson of Highland was elected chairman and Steve Ovre of Cantxm, secretary. Mr. Cuppett was renominated for commissioner, by ac clamation. The convention for the third com missioner district met at Worthing on Tuesday October 2. and commis sioner Smith was renominated. Tom ferry of Springdaie was a candidate but hadn't votes enough, a I Mrs. Ole Steensland lost a small hand bag last week. She called Mon day to advertise it, and shortly after the notice was written, Mr. Frame who lives in the lower part of the city reported to the editor that he had found a lady's hand bag and it proved to be Mrs. Steensland's.

Mitchell grows and likewise its corn palace judging from what we ob served in that lively city last Friday. In company with a number of Can tonites we made the trip and every where along the route the depot plat forms were crowded with excursion ists waiting for the special that came all the way from Sanborn, in charge of one of the most popular and genial ticket punchers on the road—Con ductor Bradbury. The train arrived at Mitchell at 11, making the run from Canton in three hours. There were ten coaches filled and well filled and at Alexandria lf0 got onto cars which .vcre already packed, but It, was a good natured crowd and nobody kicked if their corns were pressed under the dainty heels of some fair one tin pleasure bent with a corn palace smile. In was an inspiring sight when we got olf the cars at Mitchell. The town seemed tilled and Main street was a moving mass of humanity from sidewalk to sidewalk clear from the depot to the beautiful palace made of corn. Sideshows and overhead shows with music everywhere, venders call ing their specialties, booths tilled with attractions, here and there a bare legged kiltie and happy faces arm in arm parading along In the sweet enjoyment of budding love with that corn palace smile, and everywhere mingling with the crowd you could see Mayor Branson's silver starred guardians, but there was little for them to do, as Mayor Bran son ordered every known grafter out of town just as soon as one was dis covered, consequently Mitchell made a record for peace and good order never surpassed anywhere considering that some six thousand strangers entered and left the city every day during the week. The writer met old friends from al most every part of the state and while visiting in the First National bank who should walk in but the first squatter governor of the old territory, Hon. F. M. Zeibach, hale, hearty and smiling, and just as well pleased as when he used to preside over the Third House in Yankton in early days when the Third House was generally considered the best of the bunch. Mayor Branson is also president of the First National bank and a most genial gentleman, and a splendid new building for the bank will be finished in two months under the direction of one of the best contractors in the state—R. K. Hafsos of Canton. Mitchell has lots of good men, pat riotic and public spirited, and they are always pushing, and their work is making Mitchcll boom. James E. Wells, formerly of Lin coin county, is one of the best men In that town full of good men. Jim, as the boys call him, has a host of friends everywhere and he has won this splendid friendship because he is a "square deal" champion from the ground up. We got up as far as the corn palace an hour ahead of the Kiltie's concert and began to look around among the county exhibits, and all were good and worthy of any state. The Lin coln county exhibit was the last on the circuit, and it made every Lin coin county visitor at the palace feel proud. In the midst of that magnifi cent display there stood II. H. De Long and Joe Mlllett, smiling ac knowledgements to compliments from strangers who were admiring that matchless display from Olaf Jens void's big apples down to Joe Mlllett's dwarf pop corn with root and stalk complete and not over 15 inches high. Then there was John Gerber's red ripe strawberries, a second crop, taken up and transported to Mitchell, and if you had the time to count you could have counted flrty-one varieties of apples, all handsome. There was a cannon beet mounted on twin squash wheels and a squash representing a mallard duck, and any number of curiously formed specimens of the vegetable kingdom, and when you looked around a little you could easily determine that Lincoln county was the corn county of the state, and that Joe Mlllett, A. J. Wimple and John Brenner were making the coun ty famous by their corn exhibit. Great fine yellow dent—13 inch ears, all handsome with evidence of good breeding. "Oh, my, what apples," when a stranger got his eyes on those big Jensvold beauties. That big 24 ounce fellow made the mouth of many a boy water and the ladies couldn't be satisfied until they clasped their deli cate fingers around those rosy cheeks. It was no wonder that Messrs. De Long and Mlllett felt proud of their work and proud of their county and pleased at the steady flow of compli ments that poured in upon them from a surprised and well pleased crowd of strangers. At 1:30 the great curtain slid up into space revealing the Kilties ready for business. The concert was very fine and the other attractions were in keeping with the splendid program arranged for an audience of 3000 peo ple. The "Mad Caps" proved to be a great attraction for men and women, because all jumped onto chairs in the back part of the palace to see the three "rubber balls" roll around the stage. After the concert the people tilled the streets again and the amusements continued until the various trains departed, and when the trains had gone there was people enough left to till nearly all the spare beds in the city. The corn palace is a great at traction and It is the means of bring ing together the people from all parts of the state, when once a year they can say to their friends: "Meet me at Mitchell." A big crowd came down from Huron headed by Governor Crawford, who looked like one of the happiest men on the ground, and we believe he felt as good as he looked, and several of his Canton friends enjoyed a visit with him at the Widman. The Mitchell smile reminds us of the Lincoln county smile worn at the state convention in .June. The Lin coln county smile is still doing busi ness and we believe Mayor Branson is going to adopt it for corn palace week in souvenir style. It's pleasant to meet those Mitchell boomers. The Vanity ol Men. Man generally piques himself that vanity in woman springs from a de sire to please him, but he can plead no such excuse for his own predilec tion for dress. In the beginning he had recourse to personal adornment when woman was his chattel and lie was under no obligation to satisfy her esthetic taste. lie was merely following nature, which has always made the male the exponent of phy sical beauty—witness the lion, the stag, the peacock. If it had not been for the strange tendency men have always exhibited to imitate the dress of the military, it is possible that the custom of shav ing would never ha ve been introduced among Europeans. In early times it was the badge of slavery, a survival of the prehistoric custom of marking slaves by mutilating their bodies. After a gradual softening of manners had put an end to the former cruel practices, shaving the head and the beard was resorted to as a means of distinguishing the servants from their masters. Under such circum stances the signficance of a smooth face was of course enough to prevent the spread of shaving among freemen, and it was not until Alexander the Great discovered that the beards of his soldiers afforded too convenient a grip for his Persian enemies in battle, and on that account ordered all his soldiers to shave, that the custom gained any vogue at all. The remark able success that Alexander and his armies achieved made it an honor to be considered a soldier, and so civil ians seeking to gain a little reflected glory also began to shave. Our own experience in America has been just the reverse of this. Most of the boys and men who served through the Civil War, having no longer, of course, the reason for shaving that the ancient Greeks did, and finding it an irksome and uncongenial task amid the turmoil of camp life, ceased to make use of the razor, and return ed to their homes with luxuriant beards. Once more the civilians be gan to imitate, and the result was the flowing mustache, the military goatee, the square cut chin beard, and all the rest of the styles so preva lent thirty years ago. The disappear ance of these facial adornments in latter days has been due to the wide spread demand for young men. The man of sixty began to realize that without his deeply drooping mustache he would look fifty. His pride, how ever, his respect for the world's opin ion, caused him to fear that to shed it altogether would have made it too apparent that he was trying to appear young, so he did the next best thing and had It stubbed. HISTORY OF WHISKERS. Au honest history of the beard would lay open an undercurrent of petty vanity in many of the world's greatest figures. Henry VIII., for instance, shaved until he learned that Francis I. of France wore a beard, and then he laid aside his razors and his strops forever. Even the gentle Sir Thomas More had a beard which was his joy and his pride. When he was on the scaffold and the headsman was about to lift the fatal ax, Sir Thomas halted him say ing, "Wait till I put aside my beard, for that has committed no treason." Again there was the celebrated Bis hop of Clermont, who was appointed to that office shortly after the Council of Trent, and who precipitately fled his bishopric one Easter Sunday morning rather than suffer the loss of his beard. What faults of feature in the good bishop, a retreating jaw, a fat neck, blubber lips, or what not, might have been revealed through the agency of the scissors and razor we know not, but) that the conceal ment of such facial flaws has always been to a greater or a less degree the motive for tbe growth of beards is certain. In Mexico and other Spanish coun tries the hat has for centuries been the object of man's vanity. The cus tom found its origin in the days when the Hapsburg power was supreme. One of the most cherished privileges that tbe old grandees enjoyed was that of wearing their bats in tbe pre dhenour BaJcin# Powder Absolutely Pure A wholesome cream of baking powder.

Examine the label. rovai 3#king rovoen co.. sence of royalty. The absolute power of their monarch left them little else to do but to enter into rivalry with one another in regard to the splendor of their head coverings. The gay conceit spread rapidly throughout the .Spanish dominions, and even today characteristic sugar-loaf hats may be found in Mexico for sale at the astounding price of from live hundred to a thousand dollars for a single hat. When our soldiers invaded Cuba and Porto Rico in 1S!)«, the Spanish style struck their fancy, and most of those who did not come back to the States in hospital ships returned with their sedate campaign hats transformed into contraptions with high pointed crowns after the Spanish fashion. From the time when man wandered through the pathless forests bearing on his shoulder a murderous bludgeon with which to strike down his ene mies, the cane lias never entirely gone out of fashion. And the modern fop would feel as much at sea without it as did the beau of whom Steele's "Tatler" spoke in 1709, when it said that the cane had "become as indis pensable as any other of his limbs," and that with "the knocking of it upon his shoe, leaning one leg upon it. or whistling upon it with his mouth, he does not know how he should be good company without it." It may be flattering to the vanity of such a one to know that the grotes que knobs and arabesque heads that he delights in displaying arc lineal descendants of the carved baton that the fools and jesters of the Middle Ages wielded.—Satuaday Evening Post. LaValley Items. Oct. 1, 1900. Mrs. Tom Huxtable and the Misses Nellie Iverson, Eveline Johnson and Alpha Peterson went to Mitchell last week to enjoy the sights of the Corn Palace.
