The secretary of the treasury has de
cided that Elbrldge T. Gerry, who r«'
fused to pay all the duty demanded on
gowns and underwear contained In
some twenty trunks he broaght with
him from Europe, must pay between
83,000 and 34,000.
Ohio's inquisitorial tax laws have
forced H. M. Hanna, the senator's
brother, to make his permanent resi
dence at Thomasville, tia. He ex
plains that the laws enforce "a constant
temptation to commit perjury," and he
ii fleeing from that temptation.
The last act in the life of Uncle Hen
ry Bowen, a venerable citizen of Hum
phreys county was the invocation to
'foigive us our debts as we forgive our
debtors," and he practised what he
prayed. A messenger was dispatched
to summon all his debtors to the bed
side of the dying patriot, and they
came under the apprehension of being
called on to settle, but the old man gave
each one the note held against him and
thus squared the account. Several
thousand dollars' indebtedness was
wiped out by his philanthropy.—Nash
After making his customary round
of the departments with a package of
claim papers in one hand and a service
able club in the other, Brother Abner
has taken sail for the more or lees faith
ful isle of Cuba. Between his singu
larly successful practice as a depart
ment claim agent and his stipend as
Cuban representative of the senatorial
syndicate, it is believed that Brother
Abner, who in 189S had fringe on the
bottoms of his trousers, could today in
dulge in anew pBir of S3 pants every
half hour if he was so disposed—as
Betsy Gamp would say.—Chicago
The Iowa supreme court has ren
dered a decision on a question that has
vexed many people and caused a great
dear of trouble. It 1B in effect, that
shade trees fronting city properly be
long to the owners of the real estate,
and cannot be removed by the city
council. Electric light and telephone
companies have destroyed or disfigured
shade trees with a free hand because
they held a franchise to erect their lines
along certain streets, and under the be
lief that the treeB, being public 'prop
erty, they could do with them as they
pleased. Hereafter they had better see

The Clinton Advertiser looks for
ward to a panio soon after the presi
dential nominations are made next
spring. It says: "Three different
times during the past month has Sec
retary Gage gone to the relief of the
eastern money centers in order to pre
vent more serious crash coming.
Conditions are bordering on a panic,
but with the governmental assistance,
It is hoped that the appearances of
prosperity may fee kept 'up until' after
the presidential nominations are made,
when the scenes of 1896 w^t be re
pented. Factories which have" Cumu
lated a surplus of manufactured,goods,
tirlll close temporarily, and tbef pro
prietors will tell their employees that
the opening will come after the presi
dential election in case of McKinley's
•election. It will be known as a 'Bryan
panic,' and every republican paper will
claim that it is because of the fear ot
the election of the man from the
Platte. The booming has been over
done during the past two years and
there is sure to be a re-action, and if the
re-action comes next year it will give
the republicans just the material which
they covet, and Bryan will be charged
with the whole thing. Three years ago
at a meeting of the Iowa bankers, C. A.
Ficke, one of the leading financial
students in Davenport, warned his con
stituents of juBt what is happening'to
day in the financial world, and his .pre
dictions are coming true."
Referring to the American imperial
ists who only up to a few weeks ago
wanted this country to, "look to En
gland and Imitate her colonial policy,"
the Springfield Republican says: "Look
at England, and observe ner well. Let
all of our wisest imperialists, the Roose
veltB, the Lodges, the Lyman Abbotts,
even Mr. McKInley himself, join in the
study. It is not an amusing fact for
them to contemplate that this great
Imperial fabric should now be trem
bjing on the brink of destruction?
That the empire is in deadly peril is
the teetlmony of the Imperialists them
selves. Yet three weeks ago they
pointed to that empire as the strongest
piece of political masonry on earth, and
the one structure in particular which
should Berve as a model for America's
development. This proud empire, the
greatest the world has seen since the
dawn of time, is made to tremble in
every part by ten weeks of petty war
fare against two puny states in a South
African wilderness, whose combined
population does not equal that of a
third rate English cityl There aren't
1,000,000 white residents, including
women and children,in all
Those who oppose in arms the empire
are not 100,000, all counted. Yet, con
fronted by them, the whole empire
reels. The world gazes upon an em
pire in anguish simply because a few
Boer farmers, who enter battle singing
the psalms of David, will die rather
than be conquered.' Ves it IB well for
Americans to look at England. Much
warning can be secured by such an
inspection. The dangers of imperial
ism can be realized, the folly of Imi
tation can be learned. By all means
let the American imperialists look at
England. Do they want to place this
country in a position similiar to that
nation which they now see threatened
with dissolution? ItiBnot likely that
a look at England will result in gaining
converts to American imperialism
therefore, in all earnestness, all serious
ness^ sincerity, let the people of

James Russell Lowell.
Along the bright borlzon-llne,
Dividing earth from Orient skies,
We look more northward for the sign
Of light each morn as darkness dies:
Yon wood, toward which the sun slow creeps,
Will soon resound with chirping hong
Throughout Its still and solemn deeps—
The days are growing long.
A week ago, the sunrise blaze
Left far to shadowy north yon splro
This Sunday morn, the first bright rays
Its belfry lights wth gleam of flre,
That shining through Its window, seems
An eye prophetic of the throng
Of joys with whloh the vision teems
When days are growing long.
Life's day Is growing long. We scan
With curious, hopeful, awestruck gaze
Life's dim horlzjn line, that man
Exports of Oorn.
The farmers of Iowa are especially
interested in the November report of
exports of breadstuffs just issued by
the treasury bureau of statistics. The
report, according to a Washington spec
ial, shows a larger quantity of corn ex
ported in the eleven monthB ending
with November, 1809, than in the cor
responding monthB of any preceding
year, and at a higher rate per bushel
than in any year since 1895. The total
exports of corn in the eleveu months
ending with November, 1899, were
185,882,659 bushels, valued at $72,742,
127, while in the corresponding months
of 1898 the 185,284,340 bushels exported
only brought $68,513,147, the average
export price in the eleven months of
1899 being 40 cents per bushel, against
37 C6nts in 1898 and 31 cents in the cor*
responding months of 1897. That the
growth has been steady and rapid is
shown by a comparison of the figures
of 1898 and 1897 with those of 1893 and
1894. In 1893, the exports of corn in
the eleven months ending with Novem
ber were 48,602,183 bushels and in 1894
37,910,232 bushels, the total of 1898 and
1899 being more than four times as
much aB that of 1893 and 1894. In com
meal the growth Is equally rapid, the
exports during the eleven' tnonths of
1893 andJ894 being respectively 235,241
and 237,083 barrels, and In 1899,398,111
MoBt of the corn exported goes to
Europe, and Its popularity seemB to be
gaining there. To the United Kingdom
the exports of corn in the ten months
ending with October were In 1899, 69
343,800 bushels against 61,939,167 bush
els in 1898 to Germanyt 35,814,109
bushels in ten months of 1899L againat
34,889,381 in the ten months" of 1898,
and 27,742,388 bushels in the ten months
of 1897 to France the exports of 1899
were slightly less than those of 1898 or
1897, by reason of the unusually large
grain crop in that country, while in
other European countries the exports
of the ten months of 1899 were 42,505,
443 biuhels against 29,211,885 in 1898,
and 36,866,388 in the corresponding
months of 1897. This steady in
crease in the exports of corn to Euro
pean countries, and especially the in
crease in 1899 over preceding years, Is
the more remarkable from the fact that
the general supply .of breadstuffs In
Europe in the present year la vastly in
excess of the preceding year, when the
supply was unusually'short, and the
fact that the demand for corn contin
ues in the face of an increased supply
of home-grown breadstuffs indicates a
rapid growth In its popularity.
