WESTERN LETTER.
A Former Resident f Wellington Ten a
Letter to the Enterprise,
Ed. ENTEp.rr.isE: Today is tho first
day wo could call a nice day and any
thing like spring. The ice has left the
lakes and rivers and the water in the
Mississippi in its mad rush carries in its
downward course millions of feet of logs
from the pineries above. The trees have
commenced to bud and the lawns show a
mantle of green.
Minnesota in one sense is a queer
state, for when winter ends it dies a sud
den death, as it has dropped from winter
to summer in throe days. There is one
consolation in the fact that people know
when winter is gone and when it is gone
it is gone for good.
Minneapolis seems to have gone daft
on the bicycle craze. The wheel seems
to have struck the popular chord and has
come to stay. Every one that can afford
to buy rides a wheel, and incidentally a
good many that can't afford it from the
way they keep tho bicycle detectives
looking for stolen wheels. The bicycle
show which was held in the exposition
building April 0 to 11 was a decided suc
cess, judging from the number of people
who attended. It is estimated that
40.000 neople passed through the build
ing in tho six days. There were bicycles
and there were bicycles. The six pound
er, the $1,000 diamond studded wheel
and tho wheel with tho pearl handle
bars were there. There was a race be
tween Baby Bliss, a (XX) pound man, and
tho horseless carriage, the former win
ning by a long distance. Baby Bliss, as
he is dubbed, and the monocyclo can be
seen most any evening on Nicollet be
tween First and Tenth streets. Nicollet
avenue has an asphalt pavement from
Washington avenue and Tenth street
and the scorching that is done on that
thoroughfare would make Wellington
boys turn green with envy.
The summer resorts will be running
full blast In a few days. Notably among
them are Lake Minnotonka, Lake Har
riet, Minnehaha Falls, which by the way
is as far np the Mississippi the boats can
ascend, and last, though not least, is
Fort Snelling, which receives its share of
attention from pleasure seekers, it being
tho soldiers' home, and it also played a
prominent part in the early battles
fought by the pioneers with the redskin.
I see by the Enterprise that Welling
ton is to have electric lights soon.
Good! Next waterworks and then the
street car lino and then she will be in it.
I sincerely hope 6he will fully recover
from the recent calamites which have be
fallen her, and may prosperity reign in
Wellington. M. U. Gkeene.

The Koononiist.
Tho English language would become
an emaciated servant were all the words
stricken from it which define thoughts
that do not harnionizo with the findings
of ultra-theorist. To reason backward
analytically from a result to an initial
fact and arrive at an unbiased conclu
sion is a rare feat. Too many sophistB
will go around certain links in a chain,
or break them and substitute others of
their own forging, rather than to be con
vinced against their preconceived opin
ions. A certain economist, mindful of the
wide-spread want existing in the world,
asserted that there was no such thing as
overproduction? because if every man
enjoyed the liberties of perfect political
adjustment he would be able to consume
all that was produced. But various ex
tremitts have taken up tho schollium
and given its literal appeciation to the
matters and conditions of mankind.
They hold that underconsumption is
the fault and that no combination of
capital and brains is capable of creating
enough of any article to more than furn
ish every individual who needs that arti
cle and would buy it had he the price to
spare.
How extravagant this statement ! There
are few mills in the United States alone
which, wero they to run at their fullest
capacity, and employ all of tho idle men
of the nation, would not nroduco for
every man, woman and child of the coun
try, ot least three cook stoves, four bicy
cles, ten pairs of shoes, eight suits of
clothes, two sowing machines, two har
vesters and of every other commodity
used by man, about four;times, or of that
ratio, as many as he would need. It per
haps never occurred to these philosophers
that men on the whole find less trouble
in supplying their wants than they do in
exchanging their capabilities for enough
to Insure and protect 'fiia developments
of thetruo merits of their children.
We are in the middle of a line of evo
lution. Man is a fertile creator, but has
not yet solved the problem of cheap liv
ing. When food, shelter, heating, light
ing and" power, have been bo produced'
that their cost is but a mere effort of la
bor, man may hope for the privilege of
disposing of all he may produce and not
till then.
Along this track another political vivi
sectionist declares that there is no such
thing as "intrinsic"; that the only value
a thing has is its utility multiplied by
the demand for its service. This is a
revelation whether it be true or fallacious.
Every reasoner of the age has taught that
the intrinsic worth of all ; material are
latent qualities which it possesses,
whether known or not, which make it
useful to man or give it prominence in
its relations to the other things of the
universe.
A peck of "potatoes will go just as far
and have just as much true meat about
them, whether they cost 50c or $1. De
mand cannot alter tho transparency of
glass.or the substitution of coal render val
ub less the intrincisity of wood as a fuel.
Because one thing is discovered to be
more useful than another does not alter
tho unit of the inferior; it simply estab
lishes a comparative intrinsical ratio.
If iron was worth 2 before steel was
made, it is worth 2 yet, though steel may
be rated at 10.
The use of tho word intrinsic is abso
lutely concrete, though its application
may be relatively abstract.
Let reason be fair for it Is one of those
exact materials in which the smallest
flaw will reduce its intrinsic adaptabili
ty. W.

it an even and natural color, and if it is
not so already, use Beckingham's Dye
