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*.

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

Louisville. Ky.. June 20.—The Demo
cratic state convention here to-morrow
will be among the hottest contests in
the history of the commonwealth.
Many delegates were here over Sun
day. All are here to-day for the pre
liminary skirmish iu the district meet

papers show the gold delegates to be
in a majority. The silver men dispute
their estimate and charge that the
Louisville papers claim most of the
uninstrueted delegates, when those
delegates are equally divided. The
lines are drawn on the Indorsement of
the administration, with Carlisle's
friends leading for the administration
and Blackburn's friends against its
financial policy.
