SENATORIAL TALK. lAlgona Upper Des Moines.] Considering the talk about the United States senatorshlp In advance, but little ^•developed at the convention. There was ho lining up on anything. For awhile It looked as though the Judgeship might be the means of breaking Senator Gear's support, as the Fifth district, which is not committed on the senator ship but leans to Gear, was very much Interested in Judge Burnham's candl dacy and very earnest In demanding support In the southern and eastern part of the state. But the Gear forces and the Cummins forces went alike to ShefWin. Senator Gear sat with his delegation and announced the vote. Mr. Cummins was also present throughout the convention. The talk of the lobbies was that the contest was between these two, with several others possible if it develops that neither has control of the legislature. It Was rumored that the Fifth district would bring out Gov. Shaw. The.Cedar Rapids Republican says, however, that it Wll not, and hliiui at Congresman Cousins. EXCITEMENT IN CUMBERLAND. [Atlantic Telegraph.] The wonted quietude of the little town jf Cumberland has been suddenly and rudely shattered and the dove of peace has departed from its midst and the prospects are that it will not rettirn soon. The trouble all arose because of misunderstanding between an editor, a preacher and a certain jackass. The story as told by persons who have been at the scene of the trouble is as follows: The preacher, who Is of the Baptist persuasion, was at one period of hla life a printer, and calling one day shortly after his recent call to his Cumberland flock on the editor, he offered to help him at times in getting out his paper, and offering him some suggestions for Ita Improvement. The editor did not take kindly to the offer, as he thought that it was intended as a reflection ort the character of his sheet. In the next issue he put in a little squib to that effect. This aroused the Baptism and they started out to boycott the paper by ordering their names taken from the circulation lists and inducing other persons to do likewise. And here is where the Jackass comes in. One of the principal movers of the boycott was the oWher of the livery Stable. NoW this livery stable Is located within a block of three churches of the town. A loud mouthed Jackass Is one of the perma nent fixtures of the barn. Whenever the congregations of the churches raise their voices In songs the jackass raises his voice In sympathy. The church people have always put up with this In terruption with patience, but the editor has come to their aid. He has com menced a cirusade aainst the jackass and is trying to get the town council to or,der the removal of the barn. The rest of the inhabitants are In a state of mind and are taking sides In the con troversy and the three-sided flght is now the ony topic of conversation. IOWA NEWS ITEMS AMES--Work on the new Congrega tional church has been commenced and will be pushed to completion with all possible speed. AUDUBON—The new Presbyterian church Is now under roof. The walls are going up rapidly and make an ele gant appearance. OGDEN—Lumber dealers report active sales and particularly to farmers who are building new or repairing dwellings and barns.

The contract for the building haa not been 1st.

OTTUMWA—J1m Gray, of thla city, had rather an exciting experience at Hedrick Wednesday afternoon.

ALGONA—The Upper Des Moines re ports that the grading contractors who have done the Iowa Central work out near St. Benedict are in hard luck. They owe Martin Rahm $300 for board and Leonard Newman a like amount fo hay and can't pay. Their grading tools have been attached by Attorney Mc Mahon and St. Benedict may have good grading outfit left when they de part. They claim that they hired their men by the month and that' the wet Weather haa bankrupted them. Mike (FRourke hired by.the day and paid only when the men could work. Mike Is said to have made the best out of it of any of the contractors. NEWTON—Helen, the seven-year-pld daughter of Rev. J. O. Hanna and wife, was with her baby brother in front of the Christian church, after the church service, last SUnday. He was in the buggy and she tried to help him out, But in lifting Him she slipped and both of them fell into the excavation be fore one of the cellar windows, and against the window, breaking the glass and cutting their heads at the same time. Helen received a gash above one ear and the boy two gashes on his fore head and S6me smaller ones on various parts of his head. The children both bled profusely and there was quite an excitement for a while. A. surgeon was hastily called who fixed up their wounds. Both are getting along nicely at present, BELLE PLAINE—At the meeting of the Commercial Club in the city hall Tuesday evening, held to consider the proposition of Mr. Her ring for aid in erecting and equip ping a new hotel, it was the sense of all present that the scheme was feasible and was heartily endorsed all present pledging their assistance to raise enough funds to help Mr. Herring through with the deal. The building and equipping of the hotel calls for be tween $13,000 and $14,000. Mr. Herring has the promise of a generous loan from parties outside the city and with this he will put all that can be raised from mortgaging what real estate he owns. This amount will complete the build ing but will not entirely furnish It and to raise the balance necessary to place the institution In running order he asks for aid from the people who have the welfare of the town at heart. L00KER-0N IN IOWA for the Tlmes-Reoubllcan. Ocheyedan, Aug. 11.—The writer was hown a letter today from a harvest hand in South Dakota, who is getting $3.50 a day and board. These are war prices, and a farm hand will have to work but a little while before he owns the farm. Then, according to the old story, the owner Can go to work for him and earn it back. Four dollars a day for a man and team Is the regular price up this way, Where railroad grading is being done, and the contractors and farmers bid over one another for men during harvest. Two dollars a day Is the price on the railroad1 grade for any able-bodied man who presents himself. And think of it! If Bryan gets into the presidential chair these wages will be doubled, according to the Jim Weaver doctrine! But It Will be a little hard on the South Dakota farmer to pay $7 a day and board to the hired man. The farmers are finding plenty of buyers these days for live chickens. A live stock chicken car is stationed here and will be filled with live poultry from this and t'.djoining towns. Year-old hens sell fat 0 to '6% cents per pound, live weight, and a small wagon load brings to the farmer's wife $15 to $20. New York handles nearly all of thls.live poultry and dealers say there has not been such a demand at these prices Since the war of the rebellion. Governor Shaw's scorching letter to the labor official of San Francisco shows him up in an entirely new light to the average voter. "Shaw's cold blooded," "a Sunday school fellow," belongs to the church crowd," have been some of the remarks of the demo crats who couldn't think of anything worse to say. But this letter shows that he can "talk out In meetln.'" It pleases the republicans to know that we have In the governor's chair a man who can strike from the shoulder. Somehow the average voter seems to appreciate even swear words when the occasion seems to demand it. Perhaps the writer hears more of it than some others, but it does seem as though .Providence made a great mis take in arranging the reasoning facul ties of some men, so that they can not think of or utter a single original sen tence. Just now the writer la hearing about our unconstitutional work in the Philippines. How we are murdering those Filipinos who are so bravely fighting for their Independence. That it will require a standing army of 100, 000 men to hold these Philippine islands. And so on, repeating everything they read from the "opposition Journals." This same crowd repeated Bryan's 16 fo 1 solo till changed circumstances proved the statements to be absurd, but now they have a new song and one hears It every day from two or three profes sionals in each town. A star performer in Bradgate, on his way- home from work, found an audience at the depot and so pleased was he at his own elo quence that he forgot to go home to supper till his wife came after him at 7:30 p. m. Even then it required strong persuasion on her part for him to "rliig oft." Here's an account of a land office business that shows the Yankee trader la attll alive, la one of our lo^a towns there la a hotel property that baa been tmdaft off several tUnea. Twelve'thou Wl Mm Mr Trtwauin tor it. and the owner at the time of thla trade acquired it at about that figure. But he wanted to trade It for land and re cently did so for W0 acres at $30 an acre. In other words, he worked It onto the other fellow for $19,200, and fre quently mentioned it. But it somehow hurt his feelings to learn that the other fellow bought the 640 a week previous for a little less than $9,000! 1 A railroad man is authority for the statement that recently 158 trains went through Ames on the C. & N. W. dur ing twenty-four hours. It gives the reader an idea of the business one rail road In Iowa is doing these days. And crop moving has not commenced as yet. The oats crop is simply immense, both in quality nnd quantity. All of it Is In the shock, and only those who fail to stack it and get it damaged by rain storms while waiting for the threshing machine will fail to get good returns for their land and time. Wheat did not fill and make as good a berry as expected— this remark In a general sort of a way. The rain of last week insures a big crop of late potatoes. Early potatoes were never better in quality and go a-beg glng at 15 to 20 cents a bushel. The rains were a good thing for corn and great big clubs of ears are now seen hanging down as one looks out of the car windows. Only a very early frost will prevent a good crop of corn In all of this upper tier of counties, AT THE CHURCHES. Services for Sunday In the Various llouaes of Worship.

Rev. Frank Talmage says the sing ers should be Christians, as follows: Today I have a mighty theme for my sermon. My subject is to be church music, or the service of" praise. Not how the minister is to preach, but how the people are to sing. And I enter upon this text with great anxiety, for though the praise of a congregation is just as much if not more important than the sermon and the prayers, yet as a rule the last place on earth which Is ever converted is the choir loft. The easiest fight to start among a collection of Christians Is on the music. Many and many an ecclesiastical ship has gone to pieces by bumping up against the many rocks which are plied under the organ, when the great waves of sound will surge up and batter and splinter it into kindlings. And no flames are hotter than those which feed upon the dried reeds which cluster about the organ pipes. And whenever you find a church flght over the music the trouble is always from one or two causes. Just as every crow thinks her own crow the blackest, so you will generally Jlnd that either the sons or the daughters of some elder or deacon or trustee or prominent member of the church has tried to mo nopolize that part of the church service. And' if you Jostle those children in the least and try to put them out and put some one else in who can sing a little better those parent# will never forgive you as long as they stay in the church they will never forgive you. And unless Jesus Christ Himself can miraculously change their hearts they will not only hate you for all time, but for all eter nity. I have known men to come into my choir with the smell of liquor upon their breath. I have known men who presided at organs who were out and out Infidels. I have known quartets after they have finished their vocal gymnastics to sit and flirt and chatter like a lot of magpies. I have known some singers who ne\er came to wor ship God, but every action of their lives, every movement of their mouths, every curl of the feathers upon their hats seemed to say: 'Now, just look at m:! Follow me. Admire me. Listen to me.' And the wonder of wonders to me is how much some of our churches accom plish when the sensible leaders of that church allow these satanic devotees to bivouac among the organ pipes without one word of protest." LESSONS FROM LIFE OF INGER SOL,. Rev. Thomas B. Payne, pastor of the Westbrook Universalist church, at the morning service Sunday, took for his subject, "Religious Lessons from the Life of Robert Ingersoll." The text was taken from Romans, 14:6: "Let every man be fully persuaded In his own mind." Mr. Payne began by saying: "No easy task confronts the one who shall truth fully write the history of American re ligious thought and progress during the present century. It began with the in tolerance of extreme Calvanlsm it closes with the widest possible liberty in religious thought and practice. This has been accomplished by much labor and prolonged warfare on the part of religionists and secularist. Men within the church labored for the emancipa tion of the human intellect and health. Men outside of the church, impelled by no religious motive, greatly aided in the work. The greatest of these secular op ponents of all Calvanlstlc types of Christianity during the present century was the man of whom we now speak, Robert G. Ingersoll, a man of large heart, sweet instincts ana noble help fulness. I wish to bring briefly to your attention some things we should re member In connection with the man, lessons we should learn out of his ex perience, and a few things the Christian church should lay to heart now that her chief opponent Is no more. The first lesson we all ought to learn from the life of this man is this: Be careful how you present the- Creator and Father of men to His children. Teach them to think of Him, not as their worst enemy, but their dearest and' best friend. If you can not speak of God to men unless you run the risk of destroying their belief in God, far better never to mention His name at all to them. Infeersoll began to think In a day when God was universally portrayed as a tyrant. To him It seemed better, and he was right, to believe In no God at all than such a God. Another lesson is this: It Is a word of warning: "No man will have a right In the twentieth century to devote him self solely to the work of religious de molition. There have been times in the past when this was justified. A third error IS this. It Is one of fact. Accord ing to the definition of Jesus, there was more real religion in the life of Inger- F. EIRIT, OFFICE White Transfer Line soli, atheist as be was, than there Is In many a professing Christian, whose life is morally and spiritually unclean. "The world united in saying that as a husband, father and friend, Ingersoll was little less than perfect. The man who professes to believe in God, Christ and the right life, but is untrue as a husband, false as a father, innaei as a friend, Pharisee as a Christian, Is more of a menace to true faith and life than ever Ingersoll was. Still another lesson that the church especially needs to learn at this time is forbearance with and charity for those who do not be lieve Jn It and oppose it.- Denunciation converts no one. The man who has no faith in a lovingly heavenly Father, in the infinite possibilities of all souls to become God like, in an unending life be yond the grave for all souls, who can not see in the gentle Jesus the grandest character of all history, is deserving, not of our hatred anil anathema, but of our sympathy and help. A fifth lesson the church needs to learn from the life of Ingersoll, is this: The necessity of quickly adjusting her theology and creed to the obvious teach ings of Jesus, the plain dictates of hu man conscious and reason and the im perative demands of modern science if she would make impregnable in the coming century, her citadel of faith and practice. "Robert Ingresoll was made an athe ist by the abominable theology of John Calvin. According to his light he was an honest man, one of God's noblest works. Many today believe in the man, but who cannot get away from the mental bondage of the question, 'Will he be saved.' Of course I believe he will, for I believe all men will be saved. He did not believe In God. But that did not hurt God. It deprived a natur ally good man of one of the greatest joys of the soul life. He did not believe in a hereafter. But he does today. He saw through a glass darkly here he sees now face to face." CASTOR IA For Infants and Children. 11)6 Kind You Have Always Bought Bears the Signature of CASTOHIA.
