In nominating a county ticket, the position of representative was the first to be filled and Wm. Skinner's name went through with a rush. Over the auditorship there was some scramble. M. Mullen moved to leave the place blank,- but J. C. Rothenburg and James Addy opposed him and favored a full ticket. The latter gentlemen finally prevailed and 'succeeded in nominating Geo. Grimm of Springfield. \Sj .f^r^f The treasurership will be fought for by. Wm. Haubrich of Milford. His name was the only one suggested for the place. When it came to selecting a candidate for register of deeds, two men developed strength—Fred Pfaender andA.Schramm The former however appeared the strong est and was awarded the plum, if such it is to be. Two candidates also appeared in the field for sheriff— John B. Schmid and Peter Geschwind and on the first ballot Geschwind got what he wanted. M. C.

A curious phenomena isj reported in conn«^ion with tlie deaths two negroes near Pittsburg from a bolt of lightning, the foliage of the trees under which they sought shelter being photographed on the breast of one of the victims. The men were .killed instantly. When the clothing was removed from one of them, an astonishing sight met the eyes of the undertakers. Across his broad breast was a picture true to nature.The browned oak leaf of autumn was there. Twining among the folios were a number of ferns. These, too, with the exception that they like the oak leaves, were brown, were as natural as their model. So exact were the leaves and ferns that even,the minut est of the eins were disc-ernablc. It was 4:20 when the men were killed. At 8 o'clock in the evening the impressions began to fade. Slowly the daik brown gn\e way to a pitiple color. After the fading process had been working a half hour many of the lea\es were indistinct.

The nomination ot Col. Bobleter tor a fourth time as the' Rejmblican candi date for state treasurer is something re markable and unusual. As the votes weie being polled it was nip and tuck between the Colonel and Mr. Ackermann until Redwood wras readied and passed, and many of the Colonel's supporters grew anxious. Redwood county voted for Ackermann, but the remaining coun ties came almost solidly to Bobleter's re lief and nominated him by a majority of nearly 200 over the candidate from Ifoung^ America.JjBobleter's vote was T'^Why land Didn't VcftPf -, Several papers in Minnesota are At tacking Representative Lind because he did not have his vote recorded on the silver bill. The facts are that Mr.' Hau gen and Representative Lind of Minne sota, were called out just before a vote was taken by Bob Evans, national com mitteeman from Minnesota, who wanted to talk over some matters relating to the campaign in Scandinavian- sections of the country, and it was while they were discussing this ejuestion that the roll was called, and they were unable to Jhave their votes recorded. Both were against the Stewart monstrosity and both voted against the Bland bill earlier in the session. Met by the Band.' The class7 of turners and their friends who went to Duluth were met at the de pot on Wednesday evening by the band and a large party of others who were anxious to welcome them home and con gratulate them OH their good work- As the train pulled in the band struck up a strain and when the victors stepped onto the platform a cheer went up that must have made themf eel good. Aprocession was then formed and marched to Turner Hall where they were received and enV teutained for a couple of hours. A hap pier party one seldom sees.

A buffalo, porcupine and a band of Sioux Indians will probably be added to4*lin nesota's collection of natural history." And then if the committee will re-enaetr the Indian hanging, Minnesota will be set forth in all its natural glory. This, seems to be the tendency of the exhibit.

Then the fife wheat raised under the stimulou-. ot the piemium cffeied by the Pillsbuiys, is probably the best and pur est produced in this country. *Last year about fiftj different samples ranged from 450 to 495 points in a scale of 500*,, *A jar full from each of these samples could be had for the asking, and a brief history of each, written or printed, VAOUIC! be a complete presentation of th|s industry.

Among other tnings he says jphenevei an army is like the army of KeVxes, essentially barbaric, it matters not how far the ranks stretch across the field of Aision, or how far off the hori zon's edge, they pans glittering out of sight. They are useless alike for con cpite&t or for slaughter. The numbers only emphasize the failure. They hasten it^ dA\ nfaH, and serve only to astonish elfildien in story books that so many could be conquered by &e» feAA. Wherev er discipline or unity of purpose* is lack i%, numbers may be one of the ele ments of disaster. No army can fight the enemy if it must at the^same time tight itself. -CI When the HouselSt Representatives of tlte Fiftj second congress met, it met as a^nob, and has "kept up that interesting farm of organization ever since. Of e&iirse, the Republican leaders could filtve driven the enemy into compact shape, coA'ered them with reproaches, forced them to train, and otherwise have made, an army of them.

The man whose reputation was th^higWst was placed at the head of HwMwmraittee on appropriations, and thte'^eat duty of reducing to an honest level all the expenditures of the govern ment.was entered upon. Mr. Holman,' the great high priest of the new dispen sation, disappeared front mortal view for many days, and finally reappeared with a calm state%, and beautiful self denying resolution proclaiming the prin ciples of honesty, just as though they had been newly discovered, and were, for the first time in the history of the world, to be put in practice. It was -a solemn moment. Everybody felt that the high-water mark of human, virtue had been reached, and. under the awe inspiring impressions of that day, tRey were treateckas scoffers who suggested that after high water came fihe ebb. I hate to tell the sequel but, alas, the scoffers were right. |||Never since that hour have the Democracy looked so grand, gloomy, and peculiar as on that Pentecostal day when the olman proc lamation of economic virtue was admin istered to them, and they resolved how bad others had been, and hoAv good they themselves would be*|r It ia sad to be ohliged to add that now, after the ^B^TESDAY, AUGUST 3T1892. '&WHO&E E 6tf results ha\re teen reached, we find that the squandering Republicans appropria ted 468 miliums-at the first session'j of the "Billion Congress," while the econ omic Democirats- have appropriated over 500 millions- at the fir-st session of- a congress tfeat certainly can never be called-a "Kiickel Congress." Would it be ia the nature of insult to the fallen to propose to the* Honorable Mr. IIol man of Indiana a sum in the role of thrjse? If the expenditure of 463 mil lions made us of the Fifty-first congress "rascals," hat precise epithet would do justice to those who have appropriated 500 millions^ It really logins to look as if this countiy A\as too "big to be measured in some half bushels. Contrast Arith this picture of a* house overwhelmingly Democratic- a picture, the truthfulness of AS hie no man c-an dispute, of a house of repiesentatrves of the Fifty-first congress, and mark the surprising difference.

I confess that I thought of a very distant' day after many years of fight and storm and stress. But two years 'only have elapsed. Mt only have Democratic outcries ceased and Democratic* clamor subsided, but the best men eten of that party are leoking forward to the re-es tablishment of the rules of that House as the sound basis of business action in conformity with the constitution1 of the United StatesS^It would seem as if the time had come for a candid rviewr the vears of 1890, and 1891. |s* of i'mm The World's Fair had to be arranged for.

This accumulation of business has been the result of & seaemmi &tuim-? cratic houses from 1883 to 1889. The business of eight years had to be done in twoi ^The three Democratic houses wMc us re as inefficient as our successor. No sooner was the house called to order than it became clear to any man of sense that the first question was not what business should be-done, but whether any business should be done at all. *jt Unless the House could be emancipa ted from the bad traditions of fifty years there was no hope of legislation, and all the fierce contests by which a Republican president had been elected and a Republican house had been in stalled would have been fought in vain. But fortunately for the country the house was strong enough to meet its du ties, and, amid shouts anS outcries which already seem^strange and incomprehen sible, broke down the barriers of custom and re-established the rights of the ma jority to rule. This was its greatest achievement, for which it will have a name in history^: Having tmis ^assumed the reins of power, the majority became responsible for what was done. They became re- sponsible for the act of 1890 relating to the purchase of silver. Whether that act, isolated from all the circumstances of 1890, was- absolutely wise is more than know. That it then and there saved this couhtrv from the free coinage for which every Democratic leader "was then clamoring, and on whi'h they are now so silent, I do know. If time will show that it ought to be repealed, that will in no Arise militate agninst the AAI-.-^ dom of passing it in 1S90. They be came responsible for the -efunebng of the direct tax, a just measure, which, among other things, saAed from bank- S ruptcy the State of Kentucky, most, if not all, of whose representatives oted $%pa against it.* %&> Thev befcame^respofisible for thaT laf-*^^* est reAision of the tariff, which is just -£%r** noAv rising so high above the slanders A\ hich tAvo years ?go poured upon it as if the foundation of the great deep had been broken up. Free sngar, largei ex ports and larger imports are fully justi fying thejbill, and increased manufac turing results will soon add their quotn to the leturning prosperity of the coun try. They became lesponsible also for the meat and cattle inspection, which took Z,% aw ay from foreign nations their last ex- *, cuse for refusing to receive our /ood products, and enabled our able secretary of agriculture and our foreign ministers £•. to restore to us in some measure the 'V,- «*. markets of the AYorld for such products. Hi)K They became responsible for the de- to local and parochial charity. f.y"* stmction of the Louisiana lottery. They «%4it/j redeemed the honor of the United States ^~Vt by making provision to pay its honest 2* debts. They opened up to actual settle- N^ ment many million acres of productive lands, and gave a suitable form of gov ernment to vast areas of the territory of .* the United States.? They became responsible for pension laAvs which the Democratic house has not dared to assail, and which,, however much they may be covertly complained of, were but the assurance of the nation that the soldiers of the war and their dependents might be forever sure that the bounty of the nation, which it was honorable for them to leceive, should stand between them- and that taint of dishoner which, whether justly* or unjustly, has" always attached itself" -"i f« That all this Avork A\-as accomplished^ at'any time under most favorable cir-^f cumstances would ha\ l^een a greatl?^ acliieA cment, but that it A\as aceom plished, and so well accomplished, un der the fiercest opposition that eA ei e\ isted in any legislatiAe body, is a tribute alike to the soundness of the niles pf the house and the unfaltering courage of its ma]oj-itA.
