JOHN J. INGALLS. He Visits Mena and Mt. Mena En Route to Port Arthur. Hon. John J. Ingalls passed south last Friday en roue to Port Arthur, having stopped the night previous at Mt Mena. To a representative of the Star he expressed himself highly pleased with Mt Mena, the climate, elegant hotel and beautiful scenery; also as being surprised at the wonder ful developments being made along the line of the Port Arthur Route, and especially at Mena. Speaking of the war, Mr, Ingalls said that the surrender of Santiago meant peace with Spain within sixty days, but that weighty problems would now present themselves for solution which would require the exercise of the best judgment and wisest states manship the country possesses. He predicted that a season of great financial prosperity was in store for this country, due to the increased vol ume of currency put in circulation in paying war expenses. Speaking of the policy of the coun try regarding Cuba and the Philippine Inlands, he said that we would be com pelled to assume control, as the people on those islands had not shown that they were capable of self-government and we could not give them over to any other nation. He stated that we needed Cuba more than we did Hawaii, and that when we once secured it, we would be indepen dent. growing our own sugar, and much of our coffee, and that new fields would be opened for American energy and enterprise. He also declared that we would now construct and control the Nicaraugua canal, which would be of great benefit to us. Mr. Ingalls goes to Port Arthur and «abin« City on rather an important mission—as a disinterested party—and will return in a few days.

H. Ancell. At his home in this city, Wm. H. Ancell, aged 54 years, died Tuesday, July 5, at 10:30 p. m. His health had been poor for some time past and he returned recently from Arkansas where he had been for a time hoping the change would prove beneficial. Deceased was born in Cooper county, October 22, 1844, and with his parents moved to Arrow Rock, where he was reared and educated. In 1802 he enlisted in company 11,71st E. M. M., under Captam George Bing ham, and was appointed sergeant-ma jor of the regiment. After the war he graduated at Bryant & Stratton’s Com mercial College and returned to Arrow Rock where he remained until 1870 when he was elected county recorder and served one term. In October of 1870 he was married to Miss Jennie Tucker and soon after came to Marshall, where with his fam ily he has continued to reside. From 1876 until 1880 Mr. Ancell engaged in the grocery business and since that time has been a dealer in sewing machines.

Young men. let us educate ourselves, for the time is coming that a person without an education will be nothing more than a slave—like a ship cast up on the sea without compass, rudder or , Bail, exposed to the storms, struggling with the mighty waves, but all in vain, | soon sinks beneath the dashing foam, and passes into oblivion. Polk county has her clear, flow- ! ing streams running all the year j round, and fertile valleys that bring j forth abundance of grain, such as corn, i wheat, oats and rye and many others, too numerous to mention; and big, red apples, peaches, plums, cherries and berries of many kinds. All we need is a little more vim and push to make this one the leading counties in the state, and we will not have to push very hard either. We often see people, and especially among the farmers, who do not try to inform themselves on political ques tions. They don’t seem to care whether they vote or not. They leave off read ing. and, therefore can’t possibly vote intelligently. They depend altogether on what the politicians tell them. If the laboring men would UDite and come together, the monopolies and corporations would soon be a thing of the past.
