A large number of fine animals
from J. J. Ross & Sons' magnificient
herd of short horn cattle have just
finished a most successful tour of
the fairs in this section of the country,
carrying off nearly all the blue and
red ribbons in their class wherever
exhibited. The last contest for pre
miums was at Galena last week, and
the result was no exception to the
general rule.
Joshua commanded the sun to
stand still in order that he might
have more time in which to com
plete the defeat of the enemies of
Israel. In the battle with disease I
we, too, must take every advantage
of every means given to aid us in
our contest. Mishler’s Herb Bitters
is a potent agent against dyspepsia,
ague, sick headache and kidney and
liver complaints.
It affords The Democrat a great
deal of pleasure to record the fact
that the Mineral Point Cornet Band
carried ofl the second premium in
the baud contest at the Galena fair
last week. Five bands entered, the
Dubuque band securing the first
premium and our band the second.
The members of our band left here
on Wednesday and arrived home on
Thursday noon. They report them
selves highly pleased with the cour
teous treatment accorded to them
by the people of Galena, who were
unstinted in praise of their excel
lent playing. Mineral Point has

On Wednesday, Owen Roberts, of ;
Mill Creek, while on his way to
Dodgeville with team and buggy,
thought he would have a smoke. He
filled his pipe and puffed away,
all at once there was an explosion,
his pipe blew into atoms, he was
struck on the cheek, blood trickled
down, for an instant he was stuned
and believed himself shot. Noticing
that he did not die, he began to in
vestigate, and found that in filling
his pipe he had put into it ur.notic ed
a 22 caliber cartridge, and when he
fired up the cartridge fired off. The
shell of the cartridge struck him on
the cheek producing a slight wound.
From returns made to the secre
tary of state’s office by the various
county cleiks, it is shown that the
acreage of tobacco in Wisconsin for
the year 1885 is far in excess of any
year, and nearly double that of 1884,
the total number of acres for 85
being 29.260 against 15,835 for ’B4.
Tobacco is raised in forty of the
| sixty-five counties of the slate, the
average acreage varying from one to
12,166. Dane county takes the lead,
and Rock county ranks second in
number of acres cultivated, the two
! counties producing about five-sixths
jof the entire crop. The ’BS Wiscon
sin crop is estimated at 100,000

P. J. Johnson, special agent for
Purinton's Agricnltural Boiler and
Feed Steamer, has been here for
some time past, presenting to farmers
and stockmen the merits of the
article which he represents. He has
made quite a number of sales to
those who have tested the steamer.
That there is a great saving in cook
ing feed for stock is a fact admiPed
by everv - body, and that the Purin
ton Boiler and Feed Steamer will
cook feed of all kinds readily and
economically is also admitted by all
who have seen it tried. It is sold
at the low price of $25, and every
person who has either a small or a
large amount of stock to feed should
buy one.
State Veterinarian, V. T. Atkinson,
I V. S., was in Dodgeville last Satur
day, having been called to this part
of the state for the purpose of in
specting *some horses iu the town
of Linden, suspected of having the
glanders. He visited the farm of
Geo. Baker, near the village of
Edmund in the town of Linden,
where he found four horses suffering
from a disease which resembled in
its symptoms the glanders, and yet
other symptoms were present which
would indicate a different disease.
He instituted an experiment by
which he expects in a short time to
demonstrate to a certainty whether
the disease is glanders or not, and
if it prove to be, will take the nec
essary steps to prevent its lurther

New Orleans Exposition cf the Three
The management of the NORTH,
CAN EXPOSITION, which opens at
New Orleans November loth, promul
gates the following:
"The leading object of this Exposi
tion is to develop more intimate trade ,
relations between the -V.,000,000 pro
ducers and consumers of the United
Stales, and the 48,000 ,000 producers and i
consumers of Mexico, South and Cen- j
America and the West Indies,"
To every thoughtful business man j
this is a practical and worthy object. ■
But what the great mass of people
who are already planning and saving
to attend the Exposition want to know
is, How about the grounds, buildings, I
facilities for getting from the city
to tiie Exposition, hotel and hoarding I
house accommodations, railroad rates, I
exhibits and attractions. The leading
object of this notice is to advise the
public that the exposition grounds are
in the best possible condition. The
buildings have been re-roofed and re
modeled. A steam railroad from the
city direct to the grounds is under con
tract to be completed Oct. 27th. An
asphaltum driveway is being com
pleted, running to the entrance of the
main building. Increased hotel and
boarding house accommodations have
been added. Mexico and Brazil have
applied for large spaces in which to
exhibit governmental displays. The
six Central American countries and
the nine Republics and three Colonies
of South America will equal Mexico
and Brazil in proportion to their pop
ulation and area. The West India Is
lands and the Dominion of Canada, j
together with all the City, state and
Territorial exhibits, will make one
mammoth display of the arts, products,
manufactures and general resources of
the above mentioned countries that no
American should fail to see.
Anew, and to many very interesting
feature of this Exposition will be n
race course within the grounds, where
hundreds of the best horses in the land
will show their speed. The new
management, composed ot practical
business men. will spare no expense
necessary to the success oi this entcr-
Commencing November Ist. the
