Nkwrpapkr corresnondenU are work
ing linrd to form a cnblnet for President
elect Harrison. Mr. Jllutne una waeu up
bis residence In Washington for a time,
just the same as ninuy others uave anu
will do before March 4th. Some place
slpniflcance lo the Maine statesman's early
arrival, but there is evidently noining in
it. Mr. Harrison could communicate with
bim just as well at his home In Augusta,
Me., an in Washington. Mr. Blaine Is a
wit man and one of great experience in
both national and International affairs,
but the propriety cf placing lilm at the
head of the cabinet la matter for serious
consideration. ,
We are glnd that the time is so near at
hand for Secretary of State Bayard and
Attorney General Garland to step down
nnd out of authority. Mr. Garland re
mains In his poslilon with charges of a
serious nature hancing over bim unex
plained, and Mr. Biyard has actually
amounted to nothing during his entire
term. Our trouble with Mexico was set
tled on the.scbool.boy plan, that is, settled
itsell. He sent a representative of this
couutry tn the city of Mexico to look alter
the affair, and while there he became o
intoxicated lhat the authorities bad to
take charge of him, and when he sobered
up he le.lt the country in disgust. The
Hshery question is still unsettled;
that is, nothing has been done to establish
our rights In the proper way. The time
is short until March 4th, but very long to
be compelled to suffer such men to re
main at the head of such important, de
partments. It is now evident that the railway pres
idents have become disgusted with the
course they have been pursuing of late
years, In attempting to evade the laws of
the land. They have been practically law
breakers, but have went unpunished.
The presidents of the leading
lines recently held meeting In Boston,
Mass., and it was more after the manner
of a church confession meeting tbao any.

was tired of breaking the law, and so far as
he was concerned be intended to pursue a
different course In the future. The re
sults of such meetings will be hailed with
Joy by the whole people. When large
corporations attempt to evade the law,
and are called to arcount for It, they have
the means of keeping It in the courts for
many years until the matter is entirely
forgotten by the people, and II the com

none recommonded yet. One Is to tax all

Under the present system ot book-keeping

We are passing through the great prairie
gardens of Illinois, a country rich in ev
ery branch of agriculture. Milk trains
are on their way to the city with the pro
ducts of the dairy districts. The dairies
here contain from 75 to 100 cowjj the
price of milk is one dollar and twent
cents per can of eight gallons. Farms
vary In price, from seventy-live to one
hundred dollars per acre; near the city
they are worth much more, being used for
market gardening. Proximity to market
regulates the value of land, not richness
of soil. Land near some of our eastern
cities rents readily for one hundred dol
lars per acre to skillful gardeners, who
quite frequently makt one thousand dol
lars clear. One acre there is worth onn
hundred acres far away from market.
Horticulture is much more profitable than
agriculture, and more certain of succesr.
The soil is kept rich by fertilizers, moist
by Irrigation, dry by uuderdraining, and
the growing crops cai be protected from
anything which would devour or destroy.
Fruits and flowers are usually cultivated
in connection, and prove quite as profit,
able, notwithstanding all that is said
against specialists; they are the money
makers now. But we surmise the fact
that one must be fitted lor their specialty
by nature and education. Fannie Field

bold cavaliers ol the South with their
brave and beautiful ladies, typical types ol
female loveliness. A little two-year-old
boy banded the conductor his mother's
ticket and said " he wanted to go to grand
