Ottawa, III., Oct. IS. 1H87. REMOVAL. This office has been removed to tbe new f olwell-Sherwood Block, Just north of I'osi Office, on La Salle St. Tie National Farmers' Alliance belli meeting at Minneapolis last week. An en. tlrely new constitution was presented and adopted. Tbe preamble states tuat the ob. Jects of tbe Alliance are to unite tbe farm- era for the promotion of their Interests so. dally and financially; to secure Just repre sentstlon of tbe agricultural Interests in Pnncruss and State Lf ulslatures: to de mand the prohibition of alien cattle and land syndicates: to oppose all forms ol monopoly j to demand of Congress tbe pas sage of laws to protect live stock interests from contagious diseases, and to demand that tbe agricultural Interests shall be rep- resented bv a Cabinet officer. This was adopted without debate. Tbe constitution proper, us finally adopted, contains tbe fol lowlnir principal nrovUIons: Tbe name Is The National Farmers' Alliance, and tbe officers are to be elected by States and by ballot. The Executive Committee is com posed of the officers. Each local alliance In the States having a State alliance shall pay to the Treasurer of the National Alli ance 50 cents a year, to be forwarded by Nov. 1 of each year. Each Alliance char tered by tbe National Alliance shall pay 25 cents a member to the Secretary of the National Alliance, the dues to be paid at the time that the charter Is issued. The National Alliance shall Issue charters to local Alliances only In States having no State organization, and only to practical and operative farmers over 19 years of.age, women to be eligible but not required to pay dues. The minimum number to pro cure a charter Is seven. The annual meet logs are to be held In January. The resolution adopted on Wednesday are substantially as follows : Jletohcd, That the productive classes should have no interest In factional wars while righteous reforms languish for lack of unity. That railroad fares and freights should be greatly reduced so that railroad capital shall bear Its Just share of the de pression, now so seriously affecting agricul ture, and that tbe inter state commerce law should be so amended and enforced that this end may be brought about; and that all the States enact laws supplemental to the Inter-Stato law. The next finds the 'solution of transpor tatlon problem" In the ownership of the railroads by the government. The.thlrd opposes all systems of finance which Include the perpetuation of tbe na tional debt ; favors free colnnge of silver and paper money; and that "In the reduc tion In National taxes the burden should be removed from the necessaries in common use, and tbe absurd proposition to take the tax from spirits and tobacco In preference to necessaries demands earnest protest. We cannot readily believe that Congress will turn over to the people cheap whisky and tobacco in preference to cheap salt, sugar, lumber, coal and clothing." The fourth favors a graded Income tax, according to tbe measure of protection wealth receives, "thereby giviug Just ond greatly needed relief to productive labor. We demand such legislation In regard to to the liquor traffic as will prevent It from Increasing our taxes, endangering the mor als of our children, and destroying the use fulness of our citizens." Retohed, That we believe In amending the public school system so that the educa tion of our children shall be of practical value to them In after life. That the agri cultural colleges, magnificently endowed by the Government and dedicated to the purposes of agricultural and mechanical arts, should be held faithfully to the condi tion of the grant ; and as they have in many cases been diverted, we demand that they be restored. Jtetolved, That United 8tates Senators 6bould be elected Dy the people; that In order to accomplish all these and other needed reforms and to secure and main tain our rights we urge farmers throughout the country to aid in the work of Immedi ate organization that we may ask in con cert. A resolution was also Introduced looking to a union with the Knights of Labor. It was strongly opposed; and it is not be lieved possible of accomplishment. Never defer until tomorrow what should be attended to today. A slight cough shouldn't be neglected when Dr. Hull's Cough Syrup will cure it. The Blooiulnirton Pantograph says that a set.of men have been working the farm ers In that locality claiming to represent a large Chicago grocery establishment, and relate plausible stories cf how they pur chase groceries In car load quantities, and are thus enabled to sell a great deal lower than the average retail dealer. They carry with them a few kinds of groceries, which are represented to be the very best, but which have proved to be of a very inferior grade. Some who have purchased of them have since learned that they can get the Bame goods for less money than they paid for them. The men also quote prices on goods they do not carry, and take orders at apparently very low flgureB, but the orders are not filled. It is not stated that they re ceive money for future orders, but they quote low priceB on these articles in order to impress upon the farmer that the goods they do carry are cheap. Another induce ment they hold out to get the farmers' trade Is that they are placing agents In all the Email towns to furnleh the farmers groceries, and these agents will take all their butter, chickens and eggs, and what ever they have to sell, and pay them big prices.' They may be all right in spite of the bad look on some of their transactions; and If they turn up In this neighborhood the farmers would do well to rive them cold shoulder. It Is not so far now-a-days to a market town that buying of stranger l,Hrs la at all necessary : and the safest r , ------- way is to buy everything of a regular house which will protect Its customers.

This, of all others, Is the season of the year, when general cleanliness, ventilation, and the Judicious use of antiseptics, or disinfectants, commend themselves to all who would prevent the spread or Infectious cr contagious poisons, by the adoption of proper precautions. A larue number, perhaps the majority of people, continue to misapply or to imper- fectlv understand the word disinfectant Thus there is a prevailing Impression that the fumes or burnt vinegar or or certain aromatic resins, gums, woods, or essential oils, are efficient agents, whereas the dis coveries of modern science have shown them all to be perfectly worthless, Inas much as they exercise no chemical action on their surroundings, and serve merely to cover noxious emanations, by their own more powerful aromas. Chemically speaking, a true disinfectant must have high oxidizing power, or at least be capable of Imparting to a vitiated atmos phere the elements required to restore to It the natural equilibrium of Its component parts. I bus, for example, the heated vapor of nitric acid Is a very powerful oxidizer, so strong, In fact, as to rapidly oxidize, charcoal, phosphorus, or iodine, or destroy most organic matter by setting It on fire. Sulphuric acid, or oil of vitriol, acts as a dehydrator, and renders great ser vice In that capacity by decomposing or ganlc substances rich in the element of water. Many metalic salts occupy Impor tant position as antiseptics and disinfect ants; and hydrochlorides are similar in their action to chlorine. If bleaching powder be treated with a free acid of any kind It throws ell its chlorine gas, which then becomes at liberty to destroy germs and other attendants upon putrefaction. A solution of bleaching powder acts as a per fect decolorizer ami deodorizer. The read iness with which oxygen Is evolved from compounds containing the oxides of chlo rine is easily shown by treating chlorate of potassium with sulphuric acid under water, and dropping Into the liquid a small piece of phosphorus, which will immediately burst Into a flame and burn with a brilliant light. Permanganate of potassium is an other salt very rich in oxygen, and Its solu tion In water has become widely knows under the name of Codey's fluid. Chloride or Iron Is an active disinfectant, and like chlorine and Its compound, acts as an Indirect oxidizer while undergoing re duction to the lower chloride. Chlorides of zinc and mercury are both very corrosive poisons and powerful germicides; they have the power of coagulating albumen, and should be used In a higher state of di lution, and with extreme caution. Arsenlous acid and horaclc acid may both be used as preservatives, the latter be ing especially efficient and well worthy of more general application, ouipaate W iron Is an invaluable disinfectant, its action being that of an absorbent of oxygen. Carbolic acid is also very extensively used and approved. A very safe and at the same time effectual compound for domes tic purposes (purification of drains, etc.) may be prepared either by dissolving two pounds of green vitrei (sulphate of Iron) or mixing about a quarter of a pound of carbolic acid In a gallon of water. All new disinfectants, relying upon advertise ments for their sale, and ot which the com position is held to be a secret, should be carefully avoided, as, the more "fearfully and wonderfully" they are made, the less tney are likely to be other than costly ahums.

Even tiie horses that dally tread our streets nre full of It, as witness the fol lowing: Upon Invitation of Doc. Thomp son, the veterinary surgeon, Sunday eve ning, a DUpateh man had the opportunity to witness the novel operation that Is known to the profession as "tapping'' a horse. One of Sumption's livery horses was taken with colic, and by the time Doc. was found the animal was swoolen and bloated and In terrible agony. After ex hausting all other means In his power to reduce the swelling, the surgeon produced from his case a keen pointed Instrument about four inches In length, resembling a shoemaker's awl. This was encased In a silver tube, or casing. The horse was Btood on its feet and led Into the corridor of the Btable, when the doctor placed the sharp point of the instrument at a certain point in the right flank of the animal, and drove It clear to the hilt. The point was then withdrawn from the casing, and immedi ately the nostrils were greeted with the odor of carbonic acid gas. To cap the climax the surgeon coolv lit a match and applied it to the mouth of the tube, when, to the surprise of all present, the surround ings were Illuminated with a pale blue light, caused by the burning of the "horse gas," 1 he name when at Its height was probably a foot in length, and lasted about two minutes. The bloated sides of the horse gradually assumed normal propor tions, and when the flow of eras ceased was apparently as well as ever. The operation was a very delicate one and most skillfully performed. Kokomo Dmpatch. A Flat Contradiction. Some one has told you that your catarrh Is incurable. It is not so.

Alum for Itnl Water, The use of alum to clear muddy water has long been known, but Professor Leeds, In the course of an Investigation on an out break of typhoid fever at Mount Holly, discovered another value In the use of alum, which, if his observation proves cor rect, may be very Important. Jle found that the water which was supplied to the Inhabitants of Mount Holly was swarming with bacteria, about fifteen drops being capable of forming 8,100 colonies of these microscopic vegetable germs when spread upon a suitable surfuce. lie tried tne ex perlment of adding a minute amount of alum to this water In the proportion of only half a irraln to the galon, nod found tna: not only was the dirt and coloring matter precipitated, but that Instead of the same quantity of wnter containing 8.100 colonies of bactprln, It contained only fO and these were of a large form. ( )n filtering the water through two thick nesses of filtering paper, tie leund tnat the filtered water contained no bacteria, but was "as sterile as though it had been subjected to prolonged boiling." This amount of alum Is too small to be evident to the taste and Is not hurtful to health. If his observations should retrain unrefuted, they may form a valuable method of purl lying poluted drinking water. VI course It does not follow that, because bacteria are removed, therefore the obscure cause of diseases due to Impure drinking water is also removed: but bacteria and these dis eases appear to be coincident, even If not linked almost as cause and effect, accord lng to modern theories, and It Is not too much to hope that, If the bacteria are re moved, tbe virus of these diseases will be removed with them.

One thing I have especially noted In mv work, i he sections in our state to which I have been called, are the most thrifty and best tilled, denoting that tbe neonle there are wide awake and emerorl- sing. It Is Invariably tbe most thoughtful, Intelligent, well-read portion of the com munltv. who are taking hold of this work In the Grange. But It Is the back districts, back not only in distance from commer cial centers, but back in privileges, culture or opportunities that most need the bene fits of our farmers' organization, ine eu ucatlonal and financial features are of creat value to such places, but the social part Is often the only mean9 of cultivating that quality in our natures, the proper de velopment of which Is necessary to the health and happiness of most persons. 1 have known of two farmers, both men of Intelligence and respectability, who, for twenty years lived within three miles of each other, and their wives had never met, although they were school mates up to the age of twelve and were women able to be out In socletv. cherishln 2 a klndlv Interest In each other, but they did not belong to the same family circle, or the same church, and in real country life there is usually no other society.

Some political economists, In anticipation of the prospective exhaustion of the En gllsh coal mines, have computed the time when their supply oi coal win give out, and England's great Industries be prostrat ed. The resources of the coal mines In this country nre on a vaster scale and less easily drained, but the economists are sure tli fit the end must come, and may bring with it a result as disastrous as the ultimate cooling of the sun's heat, predicted by some astronomers. Long before such a time of death we may lie tolerably ure that some substitute tor coal will be discovered. lor the provi dential government of the human race will not fall. An Inventive genius in Pocahontas.'Ind., has already shown what may be done in an emergency. He crinds together corn-stalks and coarse prairie grass, and moistens them with water. When this compound has been reduced to n pulp he presses It Into blocks 12 inches long and -1 inches thick. When tnese are thoroughly dried they burn readily, elve out greater heat, and last twice as long as the same amount of soft coal. The Inventor claims this fuel con be easily prepared at a cost of two dollars a ton. Youth' Companion. Oppression I'ntler the Tariff. A gentleman who did important service to the republican party at the time of Its origin, and who was for several years one of its members of Congress, writes to the Uerald to say that the oppressed classes who have succeeded to the slaves of the South in suffering Injustice under our gov ernment are the farmers and the wage earners. They are oppressed by our high protective tariff. "They both," he contin ues, "sell at free trade prices, and both buy at protection prices. Neither are pro tected. The price of the farmers' products Is fixed abroad, and anybody from other countries may come here to compete with the wage-earners." This Is the deliberate Judgment of one of the early republican leaders, and it represents the opinion of Charles Sumner and Henry Wilson in this state at the time they stood as representa tives of republican sentiment. It cannot be too often urged that protection was not only no part of republicanism as it was originally constHuted. but was directly at war with the whole spirit of the move ment, which was a movement for freedom. In this point, the testimony from men who were republicans when the party origin ally entered upon its mission is pertinent ana valuable. notion UeraUl. YOUNG FOLKS' COLUMN. A SHORT STORY ABOUT A DOQ MISER WHO HOARDED MONEY. Description of Plant That ITrat Entrap nil Then Kill Filet and ISeetlea flow a Merry Owl Spent the Whole Night Long". Numbered with other strange plants ore the sumlows or fly catching plants. There are two sorts of sundew, one with round leaves on a long stalk; the other with leaves that are spoon haied. The round leaves usually lio fiat upon the ground, while tbe long leaves raise themselves into more or less erect attitudes. PLANTS THAT CATCH FLIES. In both kinds tbe leaves are covered all over with what for convenience we may compare to crimson hairs, but which are not hairs, being too thick and fleshy, each of which is tipped with a tiny knob. This knob is surrounded with a clear sticky fluid like gum. I his gum the flies and small moths mistake for honey. But, alas! when they alight in search of the honey they Gnd only a death trap. When the poor insect finds out ita mistake and attempts to move off, the sticky substance holds it down. The more it struggles the worse becomes its condition. All the knobs on their hair like stalks raise themselves and slowly bending over the poor fly, cover him with their stickiness. Not only have all the knobs bent over and got their captive into the middle of the leaf, but the loaf itself raises its edges so as to form a hol low in tho center. Into this hollow will now be poured out an acid fluid, which will soften and dissolve the poor beetle, all but the harder parts of his shelly coat, and then the leaf will absorb this beetle soup and the whole plant will be nourished by it. How AVooden Spools aro Made. Golden Days tells how wooden spools are made: Bircli wood is preferred. The birch is first sawed into sticks four or five feet long and seven-eighths of an inch to three inches square, according to the size of the spool to bo produced. These sticks are thoroughly seasoned. They are sawed into short blocks, and the blocks aro dried in a hot air kiln. At the time they are sawed a hole is bored through them. One whirl of the little block against sharp knives, shaped by a pattern, nmkes the sools at the rate of one a second. A small boy feeds the spool machine, simply placing the blocks in a spout, and throwing out the knotty or defective stock. The machine is automatic, but cannot do the sort ing. Ihe spools nro revolved rapidly in drums, and polish themselves. For some pur poses they are dyed yellow, red or black. They are made in hundreds of shapes and sizes. When one sees on a spool of thread "100 yards" or "200 yards," these words do not signify that tbe thread has been measured. but that the spool has been gauged, and is supposed to contain so much thread. A Dog Miser. A California exchange is responsible for tho following story: Dandie was very intelli gent and frequently received money to buy his own bread from tbe baker s. Hut Dandie received more money than his needs called for, and so he took to hoarding it. This his master discovered in consequence of tbe deg appearing one day with a breakfast roll when it was known that no one bad given him any money. Suspicion aroused, search was made in tbe room where the dog slept. Dandie ap peared quite unconcerned until his bed was searched, when be seized the servant by ber gown and tried to drag her away, and be came so violent that his master had to hold him. Seven pennies were found hidden in the bed. Dandie did not forego his saving propensities even after this; but he exhibited great dlshko afterward for the servant wno had discovered his hoard, and in future was careful to select a different place of conceal ment. i An Elephant's Memory. Some twelvo years ago, an elephant lielong ing to a circus found itself at Hythe, in Kent While passing a shop in town the tradesman good natuivdly gavo it a meal of potatoes. Soino months sineo tho same elephant re turned to Hythe. About 4 o'clock on a fine summer morning it escaped from its quartors iu tho show, uiid visited tho old shop. Find ing it closed, tho wise beast lifted tho door from its hinges, und then leisurely helped ft self bountifully to apples, potatoes, and other good things. Having either satisfied its ap petito or cleared out the stock, it bent its stej homeward, when it was met by its keeper, who had started iu search of it. On tho following morning, at the same hour, it tried to repeat tho visit, but its intentions were balked by tho keeper's vigilance. The Cheerful Owl. An owl sat perched in an ivy bush.
