"Judge Parker's movements are
becoming mysterious," remarks tlio
(lliieago Tribune. "It is reported
that before he boarded the train for
Albany, ho had his shoes shitied.
Beware of a tall man with dark,
shiny shoes! He means mischief."
An Algona ]iarty of seven just re
turned from the World's fair have
established a record for seeing
big show on a little money. As a
sample one lady started out with
§25, paid 910.50 for car fare spent
plenty of time at the grounds and
besides visited points of interest in
tho city and returned with $7.50.
Tho party paid 50 cents each for
lodging, did their own cooking
at an expense of a little more than
10 cents a day and had a thoroughly
enjoyable time.
Countess Tolstoi does not agree
with her husband in all of his theor
ies, but she agrees with tho world
which worships him, and is very
proud of him, and very devoted, al
though her devotion has been severe
ly taxed in several ways. She has
copied yards of unreadable manu
script while babies of various sizes
were pulling at her skirts she has
translated books into three or four
languages, and has transformed all
sorts of garments to meet tho needs
of the changing sixteen, her chil
dren.
Since the death of Mrs. ]\.rark
Twain many stories other early life
with the humorist have been revived
When tliey returned from their wed
ding trip they found a house waiting
for them, completely furnished, the
gift of the bride's father, Mr. Lang
don. Mr. Clemens was at a loss to
express his gratitude for a few
minutes. Then, however, he seized
his father-in-law by his two hands
and urged him, whenever ho was ill
the city, to come right over and
make himself as much at homo "as
if it was his own house."
Sioux City Journal: The doves
are hatching out a second blood.
The robins are hatching out a third
brood the barn swallows are "build
ing to hatch out a second brood.
This is something unusual. What
does it moan? If the biids could
not raise their young so that tliey
would be strong enough to fly
south before tho cold weather they
would not go on with their house
keeping. It means a long, hot, dry
spell and late fall. The weather
department doesn't know it, but the
birds know, and they never go
wrong. Even the sparrows are
building now in the open.
Giving Us Tit for Tat.
New Zealand takes a leaf out of
our book by restricting participa
tion in her coasting trade, with the
result that ships of the United
States will not hereafter be permit
ted to carry freight from one New
Zealand port to another unless" con
gress opens our coasting trade to
British ships. New Zealand's new
act is a step toward imperial federa
tion. It is taken in connection with
the movement which gives a tariff
preference to the products of coun
tries within the British empire.
Nations which open their coasting
trade to British ships are not exclud
ed, but all that observe a policy of
exclusion are given tit for tat. It is
even provided that ships of nations
that pursue an exclusive policy may
not carry goods between New Zea
land and any other part of the Brit
ish empire.—Baltimore Sun.
Problem For The Corn Belt Meat Men.
Those Iowa corn' belt meat pro
ducers who went to Chicago to try
to patch up tho strike came back
disappointed. Instead of catering
to Chicago, they might help to build
up packing plants in Iowa. There
iB no reason under the sun why
every farm in tho state of Iowa
should feel a dependence upon a few
big packing plants in Chicago. Let
them declare their independence by
helping to build up packing plants
in Iowa, and the way to help build
up those plants is to patronize tho
home plants when the farmers have
stock to sell. It often happens that
a farmer shipping stock will take
his cattle or hogs to Chicago in
order to get a pass to and from that
city to see the sights. There are
plenty of such instances that can be
citcd by every stock shipper.
The strike in Chicago ought to
impress on Iowa stockmen tho wis
dom of building up plantR-*?.. their
own midst. Places like Cedar Hap-

One of the most interesting parts
of the cattle display at the World's
Fair will be the exhibit of steers
showing the different market classes
and grades of cattle. This exhibit
will bo held during the live stock
show in the month of September.
The cattle will be shown by the
department of animal husbandry of
the University of Illinois. The ex
hibit will comprise forty-eight dif
ferent animals and each stall will
bear a label showing to what grade
the animal belongs and a statement
of its market value and the use made
of the meat. This exhibit will be of
great interest and value to farmers,
stock raisers, and students.—Wal

-Farm and Real Estate Journal.
AVe are satisfied that more winter
wheat should be raised in Iowa than
is the case at present. Winter wheat
yields more per acre than does spring
wheat, and even if a crop out of
every four or live should freeze out,
the farmer would bo a great deal
better off than if he raised spring
wheat. Corn, or some other late
crop, can always be put in on winter
wheat ground should the crop kill
out during the winter and thus tho
use of the land would not be lost.
Alfalfa meal is becoming better
known and appreciated by feeders
and breeders of live stock. It fur
nishes a food high in protein, in a
fine mechanical condition easily di
gested by animals. In addition, this
product is easily handled. The best
results are obtained from this meal
by feeding it with other feeds.

Take which corner you liko best
The three great expenses of life
are FEED, FUEL, AND CLOTH
ING. Where will we have least ex
pense in living and where can we
make good homes EASIEST
CHEAPEST AND QUICKEST?
Being free to choose it is important
to us that wo choose the road of
least resistance. The down hill road

Orleans thence west 18-1 miles on
the Southern Pacific, to tho Hub

rice, sugar and truck will feed you
Her cotton, wool and ramie will
clothe you. Her climate, oil and
timber will warm you and the Jen
nings Oil Field will grease the great
wheel of commerce whose center is
Jennings and whose spokes fill tho
world. This may sound liko fiction,
it may bo romance, it is certainly
founded on fact. Allowing that some
thing ails every country that almost
spoils it, still there is a great differ
ence in them and you should ex
amine carefully and use your best
judgment in settling the matter of
location.
The measure of a farmer's prosper
ity lies in the length of his growing
season. Here "seed time and harvest
last all the year." The best chanco
for a living lies in the diversity of
products that can bo grown. Then
nearness to best markot and best
means of transportation. In all these
the coast country leads. The climato
being genial and the evenest in tho
states with cotton, "Wool," "Ramie"
al)d
ids, Ottuniwa, Des Moines and
Sioux City now have large pork
packing plants and they kill a great
many cattle incidentally. But nine
tenth of all tho hogs raised in Iowa
might as well be killed in this state
and forwarded to market in tho
finished state. That is the way to
bring the greatest prosperity to the
state. It is worth considering oven
on the part of the corn belt meat
producers who have been working
along a great many lines, but not
always along tho right lines. Last
winter, for instance, they spent a
great deal of time in seeing how
they could get Iowa live stock to
Chicago to tho greatest advantage.
They ought rather to have devoted
some time to seeing how not to
get Iowa live Btoek to Chicago at all
but how to finish the Iowa product of
the farms in the Iowa packing
houses.—Cedar Rapids Republican,

Where ever we go our lot is labor.
Only a few succeed to fortune and
success is greatest through failure.
Your obvious duty to yourself
and your family is to come to Louis

mostly favor success. The JEN
NINGS OIL FIELD is the most
promising in the south, her rice tho
peer of any, her cotton, corn, and
truck liavo no superiors and GOOD

Cornstarch Puddlnv.
Cooking school tcucbcrs say that
cornstarch pudding is seldom properly
cooked, being generally underdone. It
seldom gets enough cooking, they say,
to take awny its raw flavor. A corn
starch pudding cooked three-quarters
of an hour, the whites of the eggs not
being added until after It is cooked, Is
said to be not only palatable, but nutri
tious also.
