fc IN* WHERE E STOOD. What a Washington Correspondent Says of the President Maker. Francis E. Leupp, Washington cor respondent of the New York Evening Post, has written a book on "The Man Roosevelt" which will be issued soon. Mr. Leupp devotes a chapter to the late Senator Hanna, in which he says: "But no one who was well ac quainted with Mr. Hanna's personality was deceived as to where he stood. He was not of the presidential mold. The senate suited his tastes and his powers. He wanted a free hand. He hated infinitesimal worries. He lacked the patience necessary to deal with all sorts of men at once as a master and a supplicant. He loved authority more than insignia. He would rather administer the affairs of a nation in the name of another than let others administer them in his name. Nature had marked him for a king-maker, not a king. "Bearing these facts in mind, it will not be difficult to understand how he could discourage discussion of his candidacy by treating it as a joke, and yet permit his 'boom' to survive when he could just as well crush it. There probably was never a moment when he felt the slightest temptation to enter the lists for the nomination, but neither was there a moment when he would have been willing to forego the power to award it to some one else. If Republican organizations anywhere saw fit to name him as their choice for president, why should he put any ob stacles in the way? He was entirely friendly to Roosevelt and looked to see him nominated he would not ac cept the nomination himself if it were offered him, and he did not expect it to be offered but to go into the con vention with a large following at his back and be able to prevent a bad mis take if it threatened would be a great satisfaction. "Politics he knew to be like fire, very uncertain no one could foretell where it would break out next. Every thing and everybody might be going Roosevelt's way to-day, yet to-mor row might witness a stampede toward another candidate or a general break up. The wise politician, he reasoned, is he who never takes anything for granted, but provides himself against all emergencies." RED RIVER POTATOES. They ill be Known as No. 1, No. 2 and Culls by the TradeMinimum Price 35 Cents. The potato growers convention held in Moorhead recently decided to in stitute a system of grades for potatoes somewhat similar to grades of wheat, and recommend that potato grades be as follows: No. 1 Red River Ohios shall be Early Ohios grown in the Red River Valley, true to name, reasonably free from scab, ripe, smooth and sound. Clean according to season, sorted by run over a 1% inch screen. No. 2 Red River Ohios shall be Early Ohios grown in the Red River Valley, true to name, sound, ripe and sorted over a IJ4 inch screen. Culls shall be early Ohios, true to name, sound and clean, consisting of small potatoes sorted out of a No. 1, and other varieties to be graded same as Ohios. The recommendation of the committee on permanent organization that all growers in the association agree to sell only P. O. B. at their railway station was adopted without a dissent ing vote. The recommendation that it be a requisite for membership that each member agree not to contract potatoes before September 1st of any year at a lower price than 35 cents per bushel was also adopted after a lengthy discussion, some of the gen tleman present being in favor of fixng the minimum contract price at 40 cents. AS THEY OCCUR. A Few Items and Comments bj "Hopeful Harry." If a receiver is placed in front of a pulpit what would those living on the phone line hear, would it be "sounding brass?" Howe\er it is not a bad idea, for some people might hear some truth that they are not accustomed to hear gospel truth. A subscriber to the American Bee Journal has sent to that paper an ac count of the finding of a wonderful bee-tree in the state of Illinois. The tree is said to be four feet in diameter and the discoverar's attention was at tracted to the tree by the honey seep ing through, and instead of cutting the tree down he procured a long cop per faucet and forced a hole and drove the faucet in and when he wants any honey he draws it out the same as molasses is drawn from a barrel, but he fails to tell us how he gets the honey to run out of the faucet in the winter. The account given in the Uniona few weeks ago of a long-lived family of twenty-two children is partly eclipsed by the following story told me recently: There is or was a man and his wife living in Michigan that had thirty-two children in thirty-three years.

A few such lectures will do more to kill socialism than all the opposition that can be brought against it. We have nothing to fear from such men. They will get a few followers, but the majority of the people in this country are too well anchored to good sound principles and good govern ment to be wrecked by such idiocy. HOPEFUL. HARRY. The Importation of Eggs. The egg market has ruled abnormal ly high throughout the United States during the winter, and for the first time this season eggs have been im ported from Europe, and for the first time in about fifteen years they have sold at a profit of from six to eight cents, after paying the duty of five cents a dozen. In former years there were large importations of eggs from Canada and Europe, but importations from Europe have not been profitable. The fact that there is now a profit of six to eight cents per dozen in impor tation from Europe, suggests an open ing to the American farmer for good profit. The value of the egg product is scarcely realized. It is one of the great sources of wealth to the farmer. The producers of the west will find it profitable to increase the output of eggs.Commercials West. The Possibilities of Swift Travel. The question of running a car at high speed has recently been consid ered by principal engineers of the world, and the success with which a car was run 125% miles an hour in Germany has demonstrated that there are no mechanical difficulties in reach ing 125 miles, or even a greater speed per hour.

Before life departed from the body of Senator Hanna, a scramble began for his chair and his seat in the sen ate. Senator Beveridge, of Indiana, filed a claim for the former, and the friends of Congressmen Dick and Bur ton began scheming to secure the lat ter. There is the same keen eye to business kept fixed on opportunity by the practical politician that there was in the widow who, in her card of thanks for kindness shown during the illness and burial of her spouse, an nounced that his business would be continued by her at the old stand. These fellows permit tears in onlj one eye the other is kept clear on the chances.St. Paul Dispatch. Hauling Steamer to Mille Lacs. The Aitkin correspondent of the Duluth Herald of Feb. 20th says: ''The steamer Remnica, which is to be moved from the Mississippi river over land to Mille Lacs lake, is ready to start on the haul of eighteen miles. D. M. Falconer, who has the contract for moving her has taken the boiler, engine and machinery, and removed the pilot house and part of the deck, and loaded them on three sets of sleighs. The hull is loaded on an ex tra wide set of heavy logging sleighs. The West Mille Lacs road is the route selected. Blocks and tackle will be used to help over the hills that will be encountered on the way." To A accinate Calves iu Germany.
