An eastern newspaper calls Speaker
lieed an annoying sort of kicker, and
adds: "fie doesn't strike right from the
shoulder, nor does he kick around pro
miscuouBly. In point of fact. he doesn't
hit or kick at all, but simply stands on
his own base with folded arms and si
lent speech, awaiting the time to strike.
He may or may not deliver a blow at
McKiniey. If he can't down him he
won't strike at all."
Justly Proud of a Former Citizen.
Webster City is proud of its former
citizen, Mr. Will Benthuysen. lie re
cently left the Chicago Tribune to ac
cept a position with the New York
World, and the following New York
dispatch of April 23, shows a still
higher promotion. Mr. Benthuysen
married Miss Jennie Taylor of Web
ster City. "Beginning to-morrow
night, Will Van Benthuysen, who
has been in charge of tbe Morning
World, will assume entire control
of the morning, Sunday and eve
ning editions of tbe World, becom
ing the personal representative of
Joseph Pulitzer. He is given free rein
to make any changes he may see St,
and there is more or less anxiety among
the lesser lights as to what bis pro
gramme will be."
Bryan at the New York Dollar Din
ner.
(From the Iowa State Press.)1
The associated press and the repub
lican papers have made as much fun
as the circumstances would justify of
the "dollar dinner" given by the New
York democrats in honor of Bryan.
It is said to have been the largest din
ner party ever gathered In America,
there being three thousand persons at
the tables. It was not a "select" gath
ering. .iXhere were present not* a' few
•who were suspected of being ordinary
working men, and others who were
perhaps not accustomed to having
waiters in dress suits behind their
chairs, but they all behaved well, and
when It came to the speaking they
listened attentively and maintained a
respectful attitude, whether interested
or not.
It is one of tbe indications of the
changing conditions of workingmen
In this country that they are growing
more serious—that the circumstances
of their environment are making them
thoughtful and uniting them into a
"party." It is also an indication of
Mr. Bryan's great strength with the
plain, ordinary people that despite the
ridicule and opposition poured upon
him that in the chief center of Ameri
can wealth not half tbe people who
wanted to hear and cheer him could be
accommodated in its largest assembly
hall.
Negro Lynchtngs in Georgia.*
Another epidemic of negro lynching
has broken out in Georgia. The people
of Iowa and the northern states gener
ally should feel thankful that they have
no race problem at their doors. But no
matter what the provocation may be
lawlessness is a reproach to any people.
This fact seems to be recognized by
the best class of people in the Bouth,
but they are over borne by the turbulent
and tbe hotheaded.
The Des Moines Leader's comments
upon the subject seem to us timely and
true. It says:
In such things as have happened in
Georgia, the south is sowing the wind
it will certainly reap tbe whirlwind,
For two hundred years the institution
of slavery endured, and Its protectors
said: "Behold an unjust thing strong
and secure." But there came a day of
reckoning, and, as Lincoln suggested in
his second inaugural, for every drop of
black blood shed by the lash, a hundred
drops of white blood were shed by tbe
sword. Without falling into infidelity,
we cannot believe that an unjust thing
"will permanently endnre. Retributive
justice waits without tbe portal and
sooner or later will" knock for admis
gioo. In what manner retri bution will
beaskedno one can tell it maybe,
goaded beyond endurance, that the
negro race will at last do what it Las
never done—rise and give back blow
for blow, insult for insult it may be
that its members will refuse to remain
longer in communities where they are
denied rights as animals—to say noth
ing of rights as men—and in thiB event
southern prosperity, being baaed on tbe
labor of the black man, would melt
away as if by the withering touch of
war It may be retribution will come in
some form not now imaginable, bat
that it will come in some form, unless
present southern tendencies are check
ed by its Major Thomases and its Gov
ernor Atkinsons, cannot be doubted.

Keeping the Udders Glean.
Unless great care is observed much
dirt will get into the milk at milking
time. One of the easiest ways to keep
the cows clean I have found is to cut
the hair off the udder and around it
with a small pair of barber's clippers.
It is much pleasanter to milk to have
this hair out of the way, and it also re
moves the greatest harbor for dirt and
filth. Then it any dirt becomes attach
ed to the udder or teats it is a very easy
matter to wash it off and dry it without
having a lot of dirty water remain to
drip into the pail, which is the case
when tbe hair is thick and long.—Na
tional Stockman
Big Profit in Rape.
Perhaps no single crop, outside of the
usual grain crops, has given so much
satisfaction as that of rape, and espe
cially is this so where tt is grown for
the feeding of sheep. Flock masters
who have sown a few acres of rape dur
ing the past year report the most satis
factory results from its feeding and
we look for a much larger aaeage to be
sown this year. We would advise any
one who has a few sheep to feed to sow
at least one or two acres of rape, and
note carefully the results of such feed
ing this year.—Prairie Farmer.
Condensed Hi Ik
The consumption of condensed milk
is certainly increasing at a tremendous
rate, and, we apprehend, will double in
the next two years if enough is made
to meet the demand, says a prominent
dealer in Buch milk. There are some
curious things about its manufacture,
however.... For instance, Minineeota
which raises a splendid quality of milk,
has not one condensing factory within
its borders, and at tbe same time tbe
Twin Cities handle enough to supply a
market for a very large factory. The
same may be said of Wisconsin, and
even Ohio, with a large supply of milk,
cheap fuel and fine railroad facilities,
has no factory, yet enough plain con
densed milk is shipped into the state
every summer to keep two medium
sized factories running, to say nothing
of the immense amount of canned milk
sold there. We believe that during
tbe next ten years plain condensed milk
will almost entirely supersede fresh
milk in all the cities where it can be
had. There is one important point to
be considered regarding any kind of
condensed milk, and that is that there
not a case on record of any one hav
ing been injured by its'uBe.
The Farmer of the Future.
Honorable James Wilson, secretary
of Agriculture, in a recent letter to a
New York paper said:—Tbe farmer of
the future must be a practical scientist.
Tbe man who does not understand the
science of the soil has no business on
the farm. If a boy wants to be a farmer
it is just as necessary that he takes a
course in the Agricultural college as it
is to the boy who wants to be a lawyer,
a doctor, a preacher, to have a univer
sity education.
There is no lesson as good as an ob
ject lesson. The dairy farmer of the
United States is going to be a great
factor in the future. I will tell you
why. Because we have learned the
secret of Denmark's butter and cheese
keeping so well in tropical climates,
The farmers of New York state and
those of the Mississippi valley make as
good butter as is produced anywhere.
Denmark makes good butter. We send
our butter to China, and it cannot com
pete with the butter of Denmark.
Why? because it won't keep. There is
a splendid market in the Orient, but we
are shut out of it practically because
our butter will not stand exportation to
that Bort of a climate.
I sent a man to Denmark to find out
about it. He learned that the DaniBb
dairymen fed their cattle food that con
tained the same substances as the
waste of our beet sugar factories
nitrogenous products. Now, then, all
we have to do in this country to make
our butter just as good in the tropics aB
that of Denmark is to raise tbe sugar
beet and feed the waBte of the factories
to our cows.
I sent a man. to the steppes of Rus
sia because I heard there was a grass
there that months of winter could not
kill it. I got it, experimented with it
here, and found that what I heard WBB
right. It will stand all sorts of winter
weather and yet be in a condition that
as quick as moisture strikes It it will
grow like a weed. That is not a parti
cularly scientific fact, but it Bhows the
beneficial results of investigation for
the farmer, in almost any direction.
The new fashioned farmer, the scienti
fic farmer, must study the feeding of
cattle. Not a pound of cotton seed was
fed to the 100,000 cattle we exported
last year, although the south raised
600,000 tons of it. That cotton seed
was mostly wasted or made fertilize

FORT DODGE, la., April 21.—A wreck

Want No Pana In Iowa.
DES MOINES, April 19.—A committee
presented Governor Shaw with petitions
of 5,000 leading citizens and labor lead
ers, asking him to stop the importation
of negro miners to take the places of
the strikers in the coal mines here. The
governor told the committee he was in
accord with the opposition to the im

him would be striotly in violation of the
constitution of tho state and nation.

DES MOINES, April 21.—The election

sulted in the re-eleotion of Colonel W
B. Humphrey of Sioux City as colonel
S. J. Parker of Hampton as lieutenant
colonul Otto Hile of Boone as one
major. With one company, Hampton,
still ^to hear from, the other majors are
in doubt. Probably no other candidate
for majbr has a majority and another
election will be necessary to eleot.
BHd.no. Against Meltorlnnd.
DES MOINES, April 21.—In the trial
of ex-Secretary of State UoFarland
yesterday the afternoon was devoted to
the argument of legal points. Three
witnes&s were examined, testifying
they, ipprked for less than thiB wage
«8lbwuF*by the executive coutfcil, pay:
ing the difference to MoFarland at his
request. The defense objected to all
this testimony, holding that MoFar
land did not fix the wages of clerks.
After along argumeut on points of law
after the introduction of this testimony
the matter was submitted to Judge
Holmes and court adjourned.
Eujoy. Nov.lty of a Surplus.
DES MOINES, April 21.—The clerks in
the state treasurer's office yesterday
wore busy payiug off the interest bear
ing state warrants that were called in
for redemption. The amount of the
call footed up $404,000. Nearly all of
the warrants were presented and paid.
Somo 140,000 or $60,000 have not yet
beon presented. This is tho mouth of
heavy revenue receipts and the treas
ury not only has funds to pay off the
remaining warrants outstanding, but
has a good surplus in addition amount
ing to $200,000, with a large number of
counties yet to hear from. The state of
Iowa is now out of debt and for the
first time in nearly three years the state
treasury oujoys a surplus.
Iowa Postmasters Confer.
CEDAR RAPIDS, la., April 21.—Twen
ty-five postmasters of first class offices
and a number of others attended the
first annual meeting of Iowa postmas
ters held hero yesterday. A number of
subjects relating to tho postal service
were discussed and resolutions were
adopted favoring modification of the
oivil service rales which would give
young men who havo been employed as
messengers somo advantages in exauii
nations and favoring inflexibility of the
8-hour law as applied to carriers. Offl
cers for the eusuiug year were elected
as follows: President, W. S. Garner,
Clinton secretary, O. M. Junkin, Fair
field executive committeo, Palm of
Mount Pleasant, Lee of Ottumwa and
Saiut of Marshalltowu. They will have
power to arrange a program and fix the

Race for the Speakership.
DES MOINES, April 21.—Iowa has two
full fledged candidates for the speaker
ship, vacatod by Thomas B. Reed, who
has become the head of a New York
law Srm. A Dubuque speoial says that
Hepburn says he will support Hender
son and Henderson's friends here are
confident he will have the full Iowa
delegation. As he
iB
From Olarlnda, the home of Hep
burn, it is olaimed he has the solid sup
port of Iowa. Captain Hull of Des
Moines, ohairman of the military com
mittee, says he will not be a candidate.
Politicians here say no Iowa congress
man is entitled to claim a solid delega
tion. No conference has ever been held
by the delegation on the subject and
until it is held nothing can be known.
Hepburn and Henderson will make
strong efforts for the delegation and it
is expected the unit rule will prevail,
giving a solid delegation to the man
with a majority.

wheat question has not received
the attention the past few years
that it should. There is a large
demand for good wheat the year
round, and a number of farmers
were fortunate in sowing a few
acres of wheat last season, with a
good yield, which brought them a
snug sum of money.
It pays to sow wheat and there
is no reason why you cannot sow
a few bushels and be well paid for
it. We are quite anxious to have
lots of wheat sown this year, and
have therefore made arrange­
ments for a car of choice spring
seed wheat, which we will let go
at cost in order to further the in
terest in the matter. Think this
over and, if possible, put a few
acres into wheat.
