HAY FAMINE If* THE EAST.
Iowa Railroads Preparing to Car
ry Big Consignments to the
liailroad companies ui'o preparing
to carry great consignments of hay
from Iowa to the east this fall. The
hay fields of the east were early ruined
for this year by tho excessive heat and
Are, while Iowa has a possibility to
garner one of the largest crops ever
produced by the state.
Usually flic roads at this time of tho
year begin to figure on transporting the
corn to the east, but this season that is
a. matter which has littlo consideration
and the question of carrying hay is the
all-iniportaut yiic. At present the
prices being paid for hay, and even
straw, in tho east are exorbitant, and
it is believed the crying demand for
fodder will induce farmers to cut every
acre they have.
To transport the hay it must neces
sarily be baled and it is believed
that throughout the state the various
railroad companies, if they can se
cure the fodder no other way,
will install baling outfits. Last
year the farmers of Iowa did not cut
all of their crop, as they believed hay
would bo cheap. They were disap
pointed for hay commanded high prices
and crop men say the price this year
will be fully as high if not higher. The
harvest will IK? an exceedingly large
one in this state. Even in the bottom
lands which are flooded there is a great
growth. Clover is larger and sweeter
than it has been for many years. Tim
othy now stands over four f'ect and the
wild hay has reached a marvelous
growth. The mowing has been com
menced and it is believed by some that
the income from the sale of hay will be
greater this year than had the farmers
received pay for a full crop of corn.
Some of the railroad officials say there
is a demand in (lie en^ for inopQ t^n
cTVk-e tlie amount t/he wesl can Siipjdy.
"Tho heavy rains which diminished
the corn average in this state," said
one who has investigated the demands
of the fall market, "may not have been
such a detriment to the country after
all. It is going to give us a mammoth
hay crop and from present indications
it is hay that will demand the eastern
uionoy this year. Fires there have
swept away all their crop, and even
now they are paying fabulous pricos
forfodder to feed their stock. The farm
ers of Iowa should be urged to cut all
the hay they can and place it on the
market as there will be none too much
and good strong prices will be realised.
The people of Allorton are making
great preparations for their coming
Chautauqua which will be held August
10th to 27th. Allerton always has had a
good chautaqua and the people who at
tended have been entertained well
but this year's Chautauqua will be
greater than any other former Chautau
qua. Their list of talent is among the
very best and is as follows: Chas.
Donnison Kellogg will open the chatt-
taqua Aug. 19 at 2 a. in. He is one of a big servant's boarding house, am
bothered to death by beggars, have
dyspepsia, cannot drink champagne,

others, who use it mainly for their own
the foremost among violinists and can
imitate birds ao that you would think it
was the bird itself. Hev. Geo. L. Mc
Nutt, of Indianopolis, a preacher of the
very best will be present during the
meeting Edward Nance Cook, the poet
and philosopher from Ohio will to
there. Dr. E. !. Eaton, of Des Moines,
who is so well known to Chautaqua
goers that he docs not need any intro

the leading Catholic minister of Iowa,
Gavin Space and Miss McDonald of
Scotland, Rev. Wickershatn of Des
Moines, Hon. Lou J. Boaucamp, Dr. Chas.
Shelton of Simpson college at Indian
ola, Dr. Homer T. Wilson of Texas, and
Dr. M. M. Parkhurst, of Des Moines,
are among the many attractions. In the
music line will be heard the Hawthorn
Musical club of Boston, the Quaker
Quartette Co. and the Corydon Military
band all of which are fine musical or
ganizations. Tents will be for rent on
the grounds and it is an ideal place to
hold a Chautauqua assembly. It will be
the nicest place in the state for the
crowd to go and camp out and enjoy

Mrs. James G. lJlaiue died at the
Blaine homestead in Augusta, Me., July
15th. She was 70 years of age. During
the last week she had failed rapidly,

breaking down of the system. Mrs.
Blaine's maiden name was Harriett
Stanwood. She was the daughter of a
leading citizen of Maine. She met her
husband while both of them were teach

THE CHRONIC WH1NER.
Above all things, be ehocrful. Of all
miserable things that ever encumbered
the earth, the worse is the clironi#
whiner. Don't whino, for Christ's sake.
The whiner can demoralize a commun
ity, a political party or a church. A
whiner can wear out. tho patience of the
Lord himself. When He made the
world, including man, he pronounced it
a good job. Then the man began to
whine that he was lonesome anil would
like to be introduced to some nice wo.
man. The Lord, although he had
already made everything he thought
necessary, humored the man and made a
woman for him, and he gave him every
thing else that was necessary for him.
But the man straightway went to steal
ing apples, and when the Lord took him
to task for it,, he again commenced
whining that the woman had put him up
to it. Then the Lord repented—was
sorry for something he had done. He
was sorry that he made a whiner.
Old King Solomon who knew a good
deal about the sex, said that a good
woman is above, rubies, or words to that
effect. We never saw a ruby, but we
are willing to take his word for it.
Having given our opinion of wliin
ers, we want to add that a good man
is no slouch. A good man, is
not necessarily a religious man, al
though religion, if not rancid or
"ramjiy" adds a gusto to him like a
smear of good sweet butter to a slice of
fresh bread. A good man, as some one
has said is one that pays. A man with
a million dollars, if he is slow pay, or
does not pay at all, has bad credit
while a poor man who pays, and does
not have a dollar left, is good, and men
will cheerfully trust him. Some men
think that be/aiuse they are wealthy
they should nw. be asked to pay. It is
an insult to dun them, because they are
"good for it." The men who keep the
wheels of business moving, are the men
who pay, no matter how little change
thej* may have remaining iij their
trousers, or how much tlwy "have hid
away in lie old Sock "home.—Sentinel
