A .Straw Vote in the Ninth Ward
Shows Clough's Popularity
With the Laborers.
Special Correspondence to the UNION
MINNEAPOLIS, April 28, 1896.Hon.
Timothy Byrnes is going to seat 15,601
delegates and visitors in the St. Louis
convention and is going to have
telephonic communication between
each delegation and the chairman.
Mrs Lora Perkins, the fair blonde
of recent court fame, is not certain re
garding her birth, marriage, parent
age and such like, but she is positive
thatshe wants the insurance money on
The Eustis organ, the Times, de
scribes Captain Van Sant as a common
place and inferior personage ^and the
"100" describe Eustis as a man without
political strength or support. Both
sides predict that the other is not in
it so far as carrying Hennepin county,
and both probably speak the truth.
The Minneapolis ball aggregation
has been without scores in its recent
tour about the country, but plenty
are laid up against it here at home.
Hennepin county Republicans are
now figuring whether they will let a
pool made up of outsiders come in here
and run the primaries "for them next
summer. That seems to be the Eustis
idea, that the people of this county
should not be allowed to run their own
primaries and select their own dele
gates. He has brought Lee from Long
Prairie and Van Sant from Winona
and formed a combination to prevent
Hennepin county from voting for
Governor Clough, the Hennepin county
candidate. This,shows how Eustis es
timates his own strength with the peo
ple of Minneapolis.
Bicyclers have so overrun the town,
that the^ceuncil has been compelled to

The Gold and Silver club is multi
plying rapidly, and numbers several
thousand at this writing. They are
hustling and will make things merry
for gold bugs and straddlers this fall.
It is a problem down here why Win.
E. Lee entered into the pool to carry
Hennepin county primaries. He won't
get anything here. Nobody knows
him, except the "100" and a few other
politicians who are in the deal, and
they won't give him any support.
Eustis will look out for Eustis, and the
100 will look out for Van Sant. All
Lee will get here is the suspicion
and dislike of those who are not fond
of political pools and of interlopers
coming in from the outside to run
Hennepin county primaries.
If General Clapp had been added to
the combination, it might stand some
show of accomplishing something, if
any pool can control the votes of the
people. Clapp is known, he has car
ried the district three times, he has
stumped here, and his three terms at
the capitol have made him known
favorably to a majority of the reading
and voting public. But Clapp, who is
undoubtedly stronger than any other
candidate _than Clough in Hennepin
county, was not invited.
A straw vote has been reported
from the Ninth ward, giving 354 votes
to Clough, 52 for Eustis, and 80 odd
scattering for the other candidates.
This is the labor ward of the East side.
It appears that the tin-pail brigade
is not particularly in love with the
"100" or the late combine. So it looks
YOUR UNCLE JASON.
The Order Has Been Prominent Before the
People this Week.
This has been Oddfellows' week.
The celebration of the seventy-seventh
anniversary of the founding of the or
der was celebrated first at the Con
gregational church last Sunday, when
the members of Hebron Encampment,
Princeton Lodge No. 208, and the
Daughters of Rebekah attended in a
body to listen to an appropriate ser
mon by Rev. C, D. Moore. Monday
evening the citizens were invited to
meet with the same organizations at
Jesmer's opera house when Rev. Dr.
Forbes, of Duluth, was present and ad
dressed the audience. His speech was
a very interesting one, replete with
Highest of all in Leavening Power.Latest U. S. Gov't Report
humor and anecdote and when he
finished those who were present were
of the unanimous opinion that he had
not spoken long enough. Oddfellow

for several months to come.
The Republican National Conven
tion to be held in St. Louis June 16

Cultivate the ha*bit of breathing
through the nose and taking deep
breaths. If this habit was universal,
there is little doubt that pulmonary af
fections would be decreased one-half.
An English physician calls attention to
this fact that deep and forced respir
ation will keep the entire body in a
glow in the coldest weather, no matter
how thinly one may be clad. He was
himself half frozen to death one night,
and began taking deep breaths and
keeping the air in the lungs as long as
possible. The result was that he was
thoroughly comfortable in a few
minutes. The deep respirations, he
says, stimulate the blood currents by a
direct muscular exertion, and cause
the entire system to become pervaded
with the rapidly generated heat.Ex.
There are several estates hanging
fire in the probate court of Mille Lacs
county, the^ probating of which has
been commenced but never completed..
Some of these date back ten and fifteen
years or eyen longer. Probate pro
ceedings were begun, and then for
some reason abandoned with the re
sult that matters are in no betted
shape than if the estates liad never
rtfeen brought into the court^In" cases^
where real estate is involved such a
course is very likely to lead to com
plications which it may be difficult to
untangle Sooner or later this pro
bating must be completed, and the
earlier this is attended to the more
generally satisfactory to all concerned
will the results be.
When the breezy, blooming bloom
ers are universally the go, how will
tailors press the creases in them, I
should like to know? When the baby's
head is nodding and it wants to take
a nap, how can mamma lull her dar

Bridget shoo the chickens with no skirt
to flop and fling, when the creatures
go a grubbing in the garden in the
spring? But the question most annoy
ing that out speculations hatch: Can
she vie with men in action when she
goes to strike a match?
An exchange moralizes as follows:
"What is the use growling about the
weather? It does no good, but helps
to make you unhappy. If you are a
little behind with your seeding owing
to the wet weather, remember that the
condition of the ground is good and
that the crop will grow the faster for
it. Don't get mad. Nature will give
you time enough to harvest this year's
crop. Look on the bright side and
stop worrying about-things you are not
responsible for, and you will be happy.
