WHAT ONE WORTH1KGTON
illM HAS DONE.
Mr. Nela Olson, gives us the follow
ing figures as the product of his farm
of 320 acres for 1891. His farm is lo
cated about one mile south of Worth
ington village. The figures given are
made after the threshing is all done,
and the crop for the most part iu mar
ket, so that they are as reliable as the
inultiplicatiun table itself. Who can
find better results from 320 acres auy
W-ierj? Good firming pays well in
Nobles county. We give. Air. Olson's
statement trom his own handwriting,
over his owu signature:

We tve had a most delightful suc

iwo weeks, in which the snow has
gradually melted away, and the frost

in Lake Okabeua is mostly resolved
into its native element. The air was
like that of early spring. On Sunday
last a copious rain fell on the soil
freed from the frost, which the earth
drank nr-greeilify. This splendid rain
was jn.it what every farmer and stock
raiser was praying for. The dry wells

SAD ANL) SUDDEN DEATH.
Mr. Albert Leisiico, of Hersey Tp.,
came lo Wortliiiigton last Thursday
afieritoou, and. at' cr making some
purch ises, drank so fieely of intoxi
liquor as to fall helpless on the
piveui nt not far from Durfee & John
Bun's store. Mr. William lionaster
compassionately lifted him into a wag
ou and took him over to the barn of
Air. Wm. McLean, iu the rear cf the
old McMauus house. Here a comput
able bed was improvised for the help
less man. He was well covered and
protected, and Mr. McLeau called in
to see him several times, and made ef
forts to rouse him to consciousness,
but they were all iti vain. The dose of
alcohol he had taken was so great that
lie could not be stirred. Air. McLean
saw him about 11 o'clock in the night,
when he seemed to be in a natural
sleep, and left him, supposing that he
would be sobered up by daylight. The
hostler went to him at 5 o'clock a. m.
and on trying to rouse him, found him
sleeping the last, long sleep of death.
His death was from the over draught
of whisky he had taken. The night
was not a cold one, aud as he was well
protected, his death was not the result
of exposure. Coroner Webb was sent
for, but he did not consider an inquest
necessary. Mr. Leistico was an hon
est, inoffensive man, his greatest fault
beiug the one which brought him so
suddenly to his death. His .family
took charge of his remains at once, on
being informed of his death.
THE STRONGEST AND PUREST.
THE OFFICIAL REPORT OF Tnis MIN
NESOTA DAIKY AND FOOD COMMIS
SIONER Snows THE ROYAL BAKIKO
POWDER THE BEST IN THE STATE.
(St. Paul, .tiinn., Globe.)
The last report of the .Minnesota
State Food and Dairy Commission con
tains the details of the State Chemists'
experiments and analyses to determine
the strength and keeping qualities of
the various baking powders. Samples
of the numerous brands on sale in this
State were purchased and first anal
yzed to ascertain their leavening pow
er. The Royal Baking Powder isshown
by the tests of both State analysts,
Prof. Eberman and Prof. Frew, to con
tain the greatest amount of leavening
gas of the cream of tartar powders
thus purchased and tested. Hence
this powder is officially ranked at the
head of the list.
The report attaches great Import
ance to a series of experiments made
to ascertain the character, efficiency
and Keeping qualities of the powders.
Baking powders that vary in strength
or that readily lose-strength before
use, are unreliable and will not give
•ren results besides it is an indication I

of the use in their corop uiuding of Im
proper ingredients. These tests were
applied to Urge number of samples
of different aces of the three cream of
tartar powders best known in Aliune
sota. They showed the strength or
leavening power of the Royal very
much greater tliau that of the others.
The uniformity of strength of all the
samples of Royal tested was remarka
ble. Its leaveuing power was practic
ally unimpaired even in the oldest
specimens. The difference in the
amount of leaveuing gas in different
sum pits of both the other brands was
so great as to seriously impair their
usefulness iu baking. As much
per cent, loss was fouud iu samples a
few mouths old. All the samples of
Royal examined by Dr. Drew were
reported of satisfactory strength and
AN APPEAL TO 1 HE PEOPLE
The atteution of the charitable peo
ple of Miuuesota is hereby called to the
duty devolving upon them of taking
some prompt and efficient steps to send
aid to the starving people of Russia.
The facts regardiug the wide-spread
destitution in that empiie, are already
quite weli known, having been pub
lished widely in the journals of oui^
state aud the statements have beeu
confirmed by ollicial iuformatiou re
ceived at the departments of the gen
eral government. There are, it seems
certain, tweuty million people iu Rus
sia who are today iu a destitute condi
tion, aud a large majority of them ab
solutely sufferiug for food at the be
ginning of a long and severe winter.
The distress aud sufferiug which must
ensue, unless the millions of unfortu
nates receive speedy relief from some
other uation, is lerrible to contem
plate, aud appeals to the sympathy aud
generosity of humane people every
where. Something must be doue ut
once, or the sufferiug iu Russia will be
appalling, and perhaps whole popula
tions will die of hunger and disease. A
recent writer iu the Illustrated Amer
ican, speaks of the famine as follows:
"lu one village of 150 families, forty
seven people died of hunger in a fort
night. Reports of telilJle sufferings
come also from the province of Taiu
bow. Travelers say that all along the
railroad, and especially arouud the sta
tions, are crowds of thousands—gaunt
hungry, dying. They have abaudoued
their homes, where the last crumb has
been eaten, aud have flocked judespair
to the railroad, recojguizing in it the
one link that unites them with the
prosperous world outside. There they
beg pit* ously of all passengers, and
there they are dying aud being buried
by their dying comrades where they
fall. In Samara only two per cent, of
the people have a winter's supply of
food, and more than one-third of the
inhabitants are absolutely destitute."
This country, oveiflowing as it is
with plenty, should not forget that
Russia befriended us in the time of our
dire distress. We are more favorably
situated perhaps, than any other na
tion, to aid Cliese starving people. Our
harvests have been unexampled our
surplus of food products unprecedent
ed. Prosperity abounds on every hand,
and we should, as a humane people,
give our nnfortunate fellow beings in
far away Russia, some of the surplus
substance which Almighty God has
showered upon us.
I have designated as a committee to
^receive contributions of flour, wheat,
rye, and other bread stuffs, Messrs. W.
C. Edgar and Charles IMacC. Reeve, of
Minneapolis, and George B. Evans, of
St. Paul. The metropolitan daily
newspapers will doubtless be glad to
accept cash donations.
I therefore call upon the people of
this state to make such donations for
this purpose as the means of each will
permit. Let a generous response be
made, for we, as a people, are abund«
antly able, and the blessings of a di
vine Providence will be our reward.

Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, the favorite cough cure, relieves
Asthma, cures Bronchitis, and, if taken during the earlier
symptoms of the disease, prevents Consumption of the
lungs. Even in the later stages of that malady, this preparation
the distressing cough, and induces refreshing sleep.
"Asthma and lung troubles are hereditary
in my family. My father, mother, sisters,
and brothers all suffered from pulmonary
diseases and died nearly forty years ago.
About that time, Ayer's Cherry Pectoral was
recommended to me as a relief for asthma.
1 commenced using this medicine and was
astonished to ttnd that the seuse of suffocap
tion and difficulty of breathing quickly dis
appeared. Indeed 1 am satisfied that with
out Ayer's Cherry Pectoral I should never
have attained my present age, 77 years. I
have recommended the use of this medicine
to hundreds of iersons suffering from asthma
and diseases of the throat and lungs, and
have never knowu it fail to afford speedy re
ttet."—H. L. White, Fond du Lac, Mich.
My mother has been a great sufferer from
asUima for the past ten year*, aud her re
covery is almost without a parallel. On ac
count of her advanced age—over seventy
we had but little hope of ever seeing her well
again but she has been cured by only apart
of a bottle of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.*'
Inglis Banks, Tar Brook, X. S.
"Some years ago Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
cured me of astiima after the best medical
skill had failed to give me relief. A few
weeks since, being again a little troubled
with tbe disease, I was promptly relieved by
the same remedy. I gladly oiler tills testi
mony for the benefit of all similarly afflicted."
—F. S. Hassler, Editor "Argus," Table
"Suffering for some time from chronic
bronchitis, which would not yield to any
medicine, I was at last recommended by my
druggist to try Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Two
bottles of this preparation restored me to per
fect health."—Enrique Alonzo, San Domingo.
"Ayer's Cherry Pectoral cured me of a bad
cough and my partner of bronchitis. I know
of uumerous cases in which this preparation
lias proved very beneficial in families of
young children, so that the medicine is
known among them as 'the consoler of the
afflicted.' "—Jas. itudel, Sancho, W. Va.
"Ayer's Cherry Pectoral has given me
great relief iu bronchitis. Within a month I
have sent some of this preparation to
suffering from bronchitis and asthma. It
has done him so much good that he wrote for
more. I do all in my power to reevmmend
tills medicine." —Charles F. Duniterville,
"Having thoroughly tested the properties of
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral as a remedy tor bron
chial and throat affections, I am glatl to tes
tify to the merits of Uiis preparation."—T. J.
Macmurray, Author aud Lecturer, Kipiey, O.
-'I have been a life-long sufferer from
weak lungs, and, till I used Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral, was scarcely ever free from a
cough. Tins medicine always relieves my
cough and strengthens my lungs, as no other
medicine ever did. I have induced many to
use it in throat and lung troubles, and it
always proved beneficial, particularly so in
the case of my son-in-law, Mr. Z. A. Snow, of
this place, who was cured of a severe cough
by its use."—Mrs. L. 1. Cloud, llenton. Ark.
"In the winter of 18851 took a severe cold,
which, In spite of every known remedy, grew
worse, so that the family physician consid
ered me incurable, supposing me to be in
consumption. As a last resort, I tried
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, aud, in a short time,
tbe cure was complete. Since then I have
never been without tlil^ madicine. I am
