.. W. C. BKOWN, Publisher. 1 '11 HURLEY. Si SOUTH DAKOTA. The government in India has resolv ed to reward the soldiers who took part In the Chltral campaign w'.th sis months' extra pay each. It Is said that Queen Victoria con siders young Irish wemen the most beautiful in the world. As they have long had the reputation of being the wittiest, they ought to be satisfied •with their share of nature's gift. The British army has a total strength according to the latest Blue Book, of 222,151. If England carries out all its schemes of seizing the choice places of earth it will be able to garrison each one witb- a corporal and ten men. An American Society for. the Im provement of Speech Is being formed. The practical good to be accomplished by such an organization is slightly problematic, but there is certainly room for improvement, both in voice and enunciation, among tbe Ameri can people. Georgia apparently Is about to storm the world with a great rush of poaches and melon. The peach or chards of Georgia have become a great feature in its agriculture, and a few late frosts in Delaware hereafter will be of no great consequence. As for Georgia melons, the crop to be moved this year Is about 6,000 car loads. Harriet Beecher Stowe reached the age of 83 last week, and is reported to be in excellent physical health. Her royalties on "Uncle Tom's Cabin" have expired and it is to the honor of her publishers that they still allow Mrs. Stowe a share in the sales of her historic book.' Poison is doubtless considered a leg itimate weapon of warfare by Spain. The report that it is to be resorted to In Cuba, if true, is an impressive evi dence of the strength of the insurrec tion. An army whose supply agent and recruiting officers elude the Unit ed States at will is certainly a serious menace to Spanish rule in its own do main. People of middle age can remember when the only use for India rubber •waB to erase pencil marks. The Im portance of the article now is indicat ed by the fact that in the first three months of 1895 this country paid $G, 660,230 for its Importation. The India rubber tree has become industrially one of the most remarkable* in the whole list Bismarck must still feel that he counts for something in German poli tics of the day. A Socialist orator has just denounced him as the great or* canlzer of disorder, a worse enemy to Germany than ten wars, and "a baron of the Middle Ages, who knows only how to kill and steal." The old Chan cellor will easily live to be 80 if his enemies talk In this strain. A Maryland man who brought shit for $5,000 for breach of promise has been Informed by tbe judge that a woman who has promised to marrry may change her mind and marry some body else without being liable to legal damages. The new woman is not quite sure that this is a satisfactory oecision. The late Widow Hammersley of New York, who married the duke of Marl borough, and since his decease has be come the wife of Lord William Ber csford, has, at the suggentlon of Queen Victoria, dropped the title of duchess of Marlborough, and will henceforth be known simply as Lady William Beresford. The queen evi dently1 did not want to be confused by two duchesses of Marlborough, as the late duke's divorced wife Is still living. Yankee, probably a Maine man, has Invented a door knob that renders a latchkey superfluous. It Is stated that the tumblers of the lock are so arranged as to get 100,000 combina tions, by rotating the knob about its axis to each of five angular positions, which are determined by the sides of the hexagon assuming the vertical. There Is much more to tbe description, but enough has been quoted to indi cate that a convivlalist trying to use the combination would be found asleep on the doorstep and standing on his head. London has public cycles for pas senger uses. They are operated by two men and have 6eats inside for two people. This is an early and per haps clumsy form of a feature that will doubtless be Introduced Into city street traffic before long. There should eventually be a vehicle which can be managed entirely by one man. The Japanese have had llnkrikshna for many years, and they & re the sim plest form of the man-propelled car riage. The London cycles are proba bly cheaper and easier than the cab, aad must be especially useful for alght-Mtr*. ABOUND THE GLOBE. DIGEST OF THE NEWS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD.

A GREAT INDUSTRY buttkr MAKING IX MINNESOTA JITE A BUSINESS. T1 QUI Awsistant Dairy Commissioner Grn haiii Leaves St. Paul 011 a Tour of Inspection of the Crcunterics in tlie Southern Portion of Minnesota. St. Paul, June 20.—Assistant Dairy," Commissioner E. J. Graham left for Owatonna last evening on a tour »f inspection of creameries in the south ern portion of the state. There are, 325 creameries now in operation in* .Minnesota. Of this number eighty have been incorporated this year. The majority of them are'cc-operative con cerns. owned and controlled entirely by tin farmers where they are lo cated. who derive a direct benefit from their product. Mr. Graham ha® estimated the total output of these 32") creameries for "lie season of 1 to amount, in round numbers, to 30, 000.000 pounds of butter. For this product the farmers receive a rate the year round of 20 cents per pound, which would amount to i?0,0!(».0(Ki. There are in Freeborn and Steele counties fifty creameries, in which were made in June o«*er l.OOO.OOO pounds of butter. Mr. Graham states that these two counties comprise tjie banner butter growing district of the state, and even of tho the United States, even tlie famous Elgin county district. in Illinois not equaling it. eit.h-v er in the amount or the quality of tho finished product. The farmers who contributed in June to these fifty creameries, and by whom they are owned entirely, num ber $."1,000, and Mr. Graham has fig ured that of the amount of money re ceived from tlie butter produced by them each patron received on an a erage ?300 during the month. That would amount, Mr. Graham says, to $43 for the production of each cow. New creameries are being put in op eration almost every day. From tlie southern portion of tlie state, where the creameries are the thickest, they extend as far north as Norman comi ty, where there is one concern for the', manufacture of butter on the co operative plan located near the north ern boundary of tho county. In Ram-, soy county there are two, and in Chisago county, where, Mr. Graham says, the conditions are most favora ble for tlie production of butter, there are live, all of which have been put in operation this summer, autl are meeting with splendid success. There are three in Washington county, one in Dakota and six in Hennepin coun ty. Next to Steele and Freeborn coun ties the best butter district in the state is located in Meeker and Brown counties, there being twelve, cream eries in Meeker and ten in Brown. The creameries are of the most im proved pattern, being, in the majority of cases, the quintuple force sepa rator. Many receipts as published still call for eroam-of-tartar and soda, the old fashioned way of raising. Modern, cooking and expert ccolcs do not sanc tion this old way. In ail such re ceipts tho Royal Baking Powder should be substituted without fail. FIRKIIt'tJS. I Insarnnee Men, Policemen, Etc., Are Imlicteil. New York.
