Farm machinery dealers are getting ex cited. The crop of wheat is coming to the front in good shape, and the average through the whole valley is eighteen bush els per acre, and competition in harvesting and self-binding machinery is becoming fierce. All seem to be doing a heavy busi ness and all claim to be best prepared for housing the golden grain. ITJif Libel Suit. There is a possibility that the libel suit of A. W. Edwards against the Republican company will come to trial after all. The rule of the court is that the terms or costs imposed for continuance ehall be complied with or paid within twenty-four hoursjor the continuance shall not be had. It is said that the costs imposed by the court upon the defense had not been paid at the oloee of court to-day ; there seems to be a chance for fun. LITE MINNEAPOLIS NEWS.

WINTER'S EVENING IN THE FENS, Now the Bun sjnka the distant swamp below. Steals back its golden streamers of the light; Old Norwich pile has lost its burnished glow, And all has vanished in the approaching night. In dusky groups tho Blender poplars stand, And far off rear their forms against the sky ; While clustering pollards mark the level strand, Or frozen brooks that one time rippled by. The shrill north wind its old-world legend sing*, Forsakes the Arctic fastness of its thione, And bears the dread ice maiden en its wißga, To range the marsh and make the fens its own. Again tho frost has numbed the leaden cloudn A myriad snow-shaped forms are flitting past ; The hungry wild-fowl wheel in timid crowds, , And scream a piercing burden to the blast Pile up the fir-logs, pile, upon the fire ! Our limbs are cold; this evening gloom appals That ruddy blaze shall flash its beams yet higher And chase the thousand shadows fro m the wain THE WRITER OF "ROCK OF AGES CLEFT FOR ME." In the pleasant county of Devon, in, one of its sequestered passes, -with a few cottages scattered over it. mused and sang Augustus Toplady. When a lad of 16, and on a visit to Ireland, he had strolled into a barn in which an illiterate layman was preaching but preaching reconciliation to God through the death of His Son. The homely sermon took effect, and from that moment the gospel wielded all the power of this brilliant and active mind. During his last illness Augustus Toplady seemed to lie in the vestibule of glory. To a friend's inquiry he answered with a sparkling eye : "O, my dear sir, I cannot tell the comforts I feel in my soul— they are past expres sion. The consolations of God are so abundant that He leaves me nothing to pray for. My prayers are all converted into praise. I enjoy a heaven already within my souL" And within an hour of dying he called his friends and asked if they could give him up ; and, when they replied in the affirmative, ears of joy ran down his cheeks as he added "O, what a blessing that you are made willing to give me over to the hands of my dear Redeemer and part with me ; for no mortal can live after having seen the glories which God has manifested to my soul !" And thus died the author of the beautiful hymn, "Rock of Ages Cleft for Me." When duties seem to clash, "the moral law always has the right of way." The means to promote any end are necessary as the end to be promoted. Blows are sarcasm turned stupid. xo rui so on. Gen. S. P. Jennison tells an amusing story of the hospital medical practice at Fort Ridgely during the war. The main illness occurring there among the troops was from the results of getting chilled, and the surgeon always prescribed a blue pill, to be followed by a ferret of castor oil. The surgeon having occa3ior to be absent a week, left the hospital and medi cine chest in charge of an orderly until his return. During his absence one oi the officers feeling triflingly unwell thought he would take a dose of castor oil to rid him self of biliousness, a3 was his practice to do several times a year, and applied to tho orderly for the medicine. Captain — Orderly, give me a small bot tle of castor oil. Orderly — Hold out and let me feel your pulse. Captain — Pshaw, I ain't sick. I only want a little oil to keep from getting so. Orderly — Can't see it sir. Must try your pulse. The medical formula of this hospital must not be encroached upon. Captain — (Permitting his pulse to bo tested.) Xow hand over the oii. Orderly — You will have to take v blua pill first and the oil afterwards in accord ance with the rules of the hospital. Captain — I don't want any bine pill. I'm not sick I tell you. Give me some oil for a corretive. Corporal — Can't do it sir. You must have a blue pill first. Show your tongue. Oaptain —^Displays his tongue, thereby losing a fresh chew of tobacco). There, hurry up with my oil, you see I'm not sick. Corporal — Not a single partiole of med icine will be dealt out of the chest to you, sir, without you permit me first to admin ister a blue pill. The medical practice of this institution is not to be trodden upon, sir, by taking oil without the blue pill, and the surgeon's reputation thus ruined during his absence. No pill, no oil. And to his infinite disgust the captain was compelled to go without his mild cathartic on account of the vigilance of this ex-officio practitioner's strict follow ing of the usual line of the Fort Ridgley practice of medicine. Why is the trade dollar like "Japhet?" Because it is in search of its *'par." Emerson says, "Hitch your wagon to a star." Freddie Gebhardt has evidently read Emerson. The new England farmers think it is pretty hard that the cigar-makers' lockout should occur just as the cabbage crop is getting along so as to be available for fillings. A burglar who has climbed up to a gar ret window on a ladder is arrested by a voice shouting, "Hallo, there, what do you want?" "May I aaft you for a glass of fresh water?"

Are these the echos of an ordinary family cir cle? One of the subjects to be discussed at the Concord school of philosophy this year is "The distinction ot reality and poten tiality from true actuality." Don't see why tho Bchool should tackle that subject as, in order to feel any interest in it, we should suppose a person would need to be about two-thirds drunk. If anybody deserves an increase in pay ii is tho fellow who scales your high wall, nails his telephone wire to your roof, chuckles in ins boot-legs and strides off without so much as "If you please," or "Th tnkeo."

Ten years ago two loving hearts were separated by a little quarrel owing to the miscarriage of an explanatory letter. He •went west and married; she staid east and married, and now both are once more free. He has eight children and the jaundice and eh© seven and the dyspepsia, and neither has auy idea of marrying again. Truth may be stranger than notion, but it is not so romantic.

Orders is orders'." The late Baron de Rothschild once took a cab to his offices and on alighting ten dered the proper fare. The cabman re ceived it, but kept his hand open and looked at the money significantly, which caused the baron to inquire whether it was not right. "Oh, yes," replied the cabman, "it's quite right, but your sons usually give me double." "They do, do they ?" was the baron's reply ; "well they have a rich fath er and can afford it; I have not." Mr. Feet, a rather diffident man, was mnable to prevent himself from being in troduced one evening to a fascinating young lady, who, misunderstanding his name, constantly addressed him as Mr. Peters, much to the gentleman's disgust. Finally, summoning courage, he bashfully but earnestly remonstrated: "Oh, don't call me Peters; call me Peet." "Ah! but I don't know you well enough, Mr. Peters," said the young lady, blushing. After the strike on Thursday one of the chief operators of the Western Union here called up the operator at Cnlpeper, Va., who is a very good operator, though get ting a small salary and long hours of la bor, and said: "Will yon come to Washington to work for a salary cf $90 per month, and a guarantee of five years?" After making a few dots on the key, the answer came: "Judas Iscariot died 1,800 years ago." John Wilson Croker, the curst critic of that time, one day, with characteristic mod; festyand good breeding, entered ur i dispute with the duke of Wellington on a question of gunnery practice, and kept it up until the patience of tbat illustrious warrior gave way, and he expressed him self as follows : "'Well, I don't pretend to know how the French revolution began or the exact hour when Marshal Ney was shot, but, by God, I do know something about copper caps." "Mr. Blitkins, I do wish you would give up that abomnible practice of punning," said the good lady to her old man at breakfast, this morning. "You don't like punning, my dear?" said old 8., with af fected surprise. "You know very well that I don't. I'd rather have a hedghog in the house than a punster." "I see," said the incorrigible brute: "Hedghog, eh? H'm — hog. Ah, yes — it's for pork-you pine," and he slipped under his end of the table, but not in time to dodge the missile. The doctor said he was a pitiable spectacle. KILLING PERKINS. It is on record in this State that a Michigan editor was once engaged to fight a dueL The affair occurred about twenty-five years ago, and was brought about by the journalist making several vicious attacks upon the honor and hon esty of a member of the Legislature. The Solon first tried the usual way of getting even, by buying a horsewhip and hunting the editor, but when he had found him he wa3 knocked down and rolled in the mud. He then sent a formal challenge, and, as the editor opened the letter, he turned to his two compositors and said : "Boys, how much matter have you ret up for the first page ?" ''Three columns," replied the fore man, after measuring up on the galleys. "And we need five. You'll have it all up by noon to-morrow, and by Wednes day night all the inside will be up. Then I'll wet down the paper and make up, and while you are working off the out side I'll run out and shoot Old Perkins, who has sent me a challenge." He sent a formal acceptance, named rifles as weapons, appointed the rendez vous within thirty rods of the office, and then began to scratch out copy. "When the hour arrived he was making up the forms, having got a little behind the programme, and by and by his second came in at the back door and said : "We've been waiting for you all of twenty minutes." "But I'm busy." " This is no time to be busy. Perkins is all ready." " Hang the luck !" growled the editor as he filled out a column and flung down his rule. ' ■ That's just like Perkins— he wants to throw our publication day. Come on— l'll fill him up !" The editor seized his gun, and hatless and coatless he set out on a lope for the spot. Perkins saw hin\ coming in that fashion, and his knees weakened and his chin dropped, and, though the editor yelled for him to hold on a minute, he bolted over a fence and didn't come out of the woods until he was she miles away. — Detroit Free Press.

There is a plant in Ceylon. that seems* made to grow where no other green thing can. The curious thing about it is the way that it manages to scatter its seed over the dry and desert places. The seeds grow in a round case, shaped like a dandelion's seed head, but much stronger and larger, being as big as a child's head. When they are ready to grow the boxes of seed get loose frcn> the stalks, and the first strong breeze^ starts them off on the sand. Away they go lite balls, scattering the ripe seeds on their path for miles, and wherever a.. seed falls it takes root and grows. If the ball comes to water it is so light that • it floats easily, while the wind still car ries it on. In this way the seeds are carried to the most barren shores and begin the work of covering them witii green. This curious plant is the water • pink, called by the natives " The Great . Beard of Kama.
