Some of the Sermons Deliv ered in Minneapolis Pul pits Yesterday. THE SEANCE POSTPONED. Yesterday's Rain Too Much for ■ Kate Eddy. About 300 persons assembled at the Washington rink last evening to attend the seance to be given by Kate Eddy, the noted spiritualistic medium. Public interest has been excited by the recent newspaper controversy between the medium and Prof. E. G. Johnson, who has claimed he could ex- \ pose her "manifestations," and if the weather had been at all propitious the spacious rink would, undoubtedly, have been filled. As it was. it was raining very hard, and the me dium failed to materialize, any further than to drive up to the door of the rink in a carriage, where she waited while her manager sized up the crowd. Its proportions evidently did not suit him, and he gave instructions that the money should be refunded to those who had been admitted. The sale of seats was stopped as soon as pos sible, and the money was returned to those who had paid. Some little dis satisfaction was expressed by those who had braved the storm to witness the seance, but the manager was obdurate and said that he would not con sent that Miss Eddy, after coming all the way to Minneapolis from New York, should give a seance to such a small audience. She had been attacked in the newspapers because she had an nounced that she was willing to have her powers tested, and he meant that the test should be made under circumstances which would permit the public to witness it. This view of the situation was accepted without grum bling by the people, especially when they found they were going to get their money back. Prof. Johnson was on hand by a large majority, and made himself quite conspicuous by bustling around as if he owned the rink, and was running the show. After the Eddy con tingent left he climbed upon the stage and announced that the seance had been postponed until next Sunday night, when he would be present "just the same." <;. L. Wood, a local spiritualist, who has announced his desire to ex pose the professor, as well as the medium, if she should prove to be a fraud, was also present and wanted the seance to proceed, although he finally agreed it would be wiser to have a post ponement. GET A .MOVE ON THEM. The Street Car Horses Should Be Coaxed Into a Trot. Minneapolis is now getting better Ftreet railway service in some respects than it ever did before, and great credit is due the management of the company for it. But there is one thing against which every resident of the city whoever uses the cars is kicking, and kicking hard, too. This protest is against the slowness with which the cars are run an all the lines in every part of the city. As it is now any one can walk a mile »nd reach home ten to fifteen minutes Jefore the cars reach there. This makes t somewhat unpleasant for those who live any distance out, and aiany are now refusing to use [be ears at all. As in every city of any size in the United States the cars are run faster, so that a person can at least jain a few minutes" time in going some listance. and it would seem that some means might be devised whereby the Minneapolis ears could be made to co a little more rapidly. Now the horses walk along the streets, seldom getting out of a walk, and never going is fast as an ordinary man can walk. The men who live a mile or so out, and have one hour in which to go home, eat their meals and return to the office, are the ones who are agitating the subject, and that they mean to take some de cided action in the matter is certain. YOUNG MEN AND THE CHURCH Another Powerful Sermon by the Rev. T. F. Thwing. At Plymouth church yesterday even ing the Rev. C. F. Thwing preached on "The Church and Young Men." The church, he said, has the deepest interest In young men. The reason is evident. Young people are influenced with greater ease than old. Christian work, therefore, with these is very remuner ative in the strengthening and preserva tion of manhood and womanhood. The church seems to have a deeper interest in young men than in young women. The reason for this is that the tempta tions of young men are more perilous and destructive than that of young women. The chief moral temptation of young women is to a dissipation of time and strength in worthless work. The temptation is not so much to do bad things or to be bad, as to do nothing or to be nobodies. A young lawyer, writing to me, says: "For a young man to be absolutely on his own feet in a city like this is a hard row. If there is no one who cares what he does when off duty, there is nothing left but the original stuff, and in the majority of men that is not sufficient." These words are in part to be applied to young women. But I dare say that young men have much of the original stuff in them for good, and 1 think in the majority of cases that it is sufficient. To-night, in continuing the series of sermons to young men, 1 shall take up the relation of young men to the church, and of the church to young men. 1 shall first let the young men speak of the reasons for attending or failing to attend public services. The first whom I summon is a clever man, a young lawyer. He says: "Young men are very ant to stay away from church, and. frankly. 1 don't think there is offered them what they need. Generally a young man who goes to church goes for one of three reasons: First, habit; sec ond, sense of duty; third, for what he gets there. Our church service has lost its solemnity. It is now a lect ure with preliminaries. Our church architecture is largely at fault. The musical part of our services is extremely irreligious. In the Episcopal churches the service remains one of geneal, joint worship. 'Twere well, perhaps, to copy somewhat from them. Their exquisite ritual always somewhere readies every one. One thing that keeps young men away from church more than anything else is the constant telling a young man he must give intellectual belief to this and that proposition of systematic, dog matic theology. The second witness whom I summon is a young banker, and he says: "I do not think that as a class young men attend church. Church-going is, in a large number of cases, merely a matter of habit. I believe the great trouble with young men.as with many others, is their perfect indifference to things ot a religious na ture. I think young men as a rule make Sunday a day of rest, a sort of loafing day." A third, in much the same tenor says: "A very large number of young i.»en do not atr^.id church. Some io not find it interesting, some are shy II and strange, and many find irritation in the preaching of theological views and literal interpretations of Scripture." Another, a young. doctor, says: "No, they do not attend church, because the world offers them stronger, more sub stantial and immediate attractions, and their business deters them." Another young doctor also replies negatively: "For several reasons. Some because, they are too tired with the pressing business life of the week, some because they are physically exhausted by the super addition of social excesses to their business duties, some be cause they like better to do some thing else, without that something being in any way injurious, some because the Sunday newspaper consumes too much of their time, others because of many of the churches failing to supply the kind of spiritual pabulum which they need." A young lawyer says, "A large number do not, to my knowledge. A feeling of having outgrown the orthodox faith, a spirit of would-be independence, and in some cases 'offishness.' All these are largely responsible. Young men are nothing if not independent, self-reliant. They will not copy a custom even in church-going if they think it has any of the elements of womanishness, or goody-goodvness, or weakness. At the root of it all, too, is the feeling that church-going and orthodoxy have no necessary connection with vital re ligion." A prominent young business man also says : "I suppose the larger percentage do not. First, a tendency to be lazy Sunday morning as a relief from the pressure of week days. Second, the in fluence of those in the boarding house caring nothing for those things that make for righteousness. Third, last, and I think the greatest, the Sunday newspaper, patronized and read by our leading Christian men as an example. And here I would add a word closely j connected with the last re- I mark, of a practice remarkably j prevalent among Christian men in I Minneapolis, which. I believe is a clear j desecration of the Sabbath, and respon sible to an extent for its disregard and for the lack of spirituality often evident, | namely, the mentioning and discussing | of business matters on Sunday. My j dear sir, it has again and again sur- ! prised me to hear Christian men and j women, leaders in the church life in j this church, discussing with no hesita- i tion those things that belong to six days of the week. It may be proper to add that my surprise was not new. There was occasion for it in my old church home." In relation to the thousands of young men in Minneapolis, the number attending church is small: but compared with other cities, the number is very large. The number of young men who look to Plymouth church as their church home is between 300 and 400, and not a few of them are in attendance each Sunday. The rea sons for failing to attend which are j cited by these correspondents are easily j divided into classes— reasons found in the young men themselves or their | conditions and reasons found in the j churches. The reasons found in the church may be expressed in one word i lack of attractiveness. The service is not restful, the sermon is not entertain ing. The idea is prevalent that one should go to church for the same reason that be should go to the theater or popular lecture, for the purpose of entertainment. 1 should come as an individual who had done wrong, desiring that wrong to con fess and to obtain pardon of the one wronged, I should go with reverent thanks for gifts undeserved, but none the less needful and welcome. I should go desiring the help of a present God. I should pray that I might be more strong to do the work, more ready to bear my burden, more reconciled to dis appointment. I should come, remember ing that 1 am abbout to die, and praying to fit myself for that hour of supreme loneliness. I should come, not forget ting that I am immortal, and desiring to make the wisest use ot this primary school of life in fitting me for the higher tasks. Thus coming, I should depart with a mind more calm in its mood, more firm in its grasp on the eternal verities, with a heart trusting where it could not feel and hoping where it could not trust, with a conscience the more determined to choose the right, with a purpose to make the Divine will for my self, my own will. In a word, I should want the service to make me more of a man, by making me more of the son of God, more worthy of my divine sonship, because of my greater humanity. THE GREAT HYMN. "And They Sung a Hymn and Went Out." Rev. D. J. Burrell, whose cut is printed herewith, preached at West minster church yesterday morning, from Matt, xxvi, 30. He said: On the evening of ' the 13th of Nisan, A. D., 30, a company of men entered an upper room in Jerusalem and sat down to the Passover least. While they were at table their leader, who knew that he was approaching death, delivered to them his farewell words and instituted a memorial observance, He then offered prayer; after which "they sung a hymn and went out." This hymn was probably some portion of "the Great Hallel," (Psalms cxiii-cxviii), in which men are exhorted to praise the Lord be cause he is good and his mercy endureth forever. Observe, Christ joined in the singing of the hymn. There are those who think ot him as an austere man. On the other hand he was anointed with the oil of gladness above his fellows; and at his right baud are pleasures tor evermore. The disciples sang! In that upper room was the nucleus of the only sing ing church the world has ever seen. Tacitus says that in his day the follow ers of Jesus were wont to assemble in out-of-the-way places, before daybreak, and "sing the praises of their Master whom they worshiped as God." Two centuries later (350 A. D.) Jerome said: "Go where you will, in the fields, the shops, everywhere, you will find the Christians regaling themselves with song." In the sixth century Gregory the Great prepared an "Antiphonar" or hymn book for the services of the church. The reformation (about 1500 A. D.) brought about a great revival of sacred song, which has continued to this day. Thus the gospel has come down through the centuries like a bird on the wing, pouring out its praises like the Father of Light. It is becoming in the followers of Christ to sing under all circumstances. Heaven will be all-glorious with song. Those who now complain that they have "no ear for music" and "no voice" will join in the great chorus there and make music to their hearts' content. Our singing here is but rehearsal for the hallelujah chorus of the temple on high. There is one qualification, without which we cannot join in the praises of heaven; namely, faith in Jesus Christ. By taith we are saved, and only the saved can sing. David said: "He hath brought me up out of the horrible pit and miry clay; lie hath set my feet upon a rock, ami put a new song "in my lips." Trust in the Savior; leave the joy of sins forgiven ; have your heart hired like a brimming cup, with the hope that maketh not ashamed, and "Go on your way in peace to heaven, And wear a crown with Jesus." WOMEN AND THE CHURCH. Rev. H. M. Simmons Protests Against Keeping Them Out of the Councils. H. M. . Simmons preached about "Women and the Church" at the Uni tarian church yesterday morning. He said considering how much the church owes to women and that they are its most active supporters and most earnest workers, it seems hardly courteous to keep them out of its councils and pul pits, Their Judgments and feelings on religious subjects are also probably as true as that of the males. Kenan said he sometimes fancied that the judg ments to be passed on us in the valley of Jehosaphat will be simply "those of women countersigned by the Almighty," and one sometimes feeis that the truest voice of God in the world is that which speaks through the heart of a good and loving woman. But after all the work done In church meetings and in the pulpits and at the polls is so small a part of the good work of the world that It becomes a compa THE SAINT PATTL I)AIT^ GLOBE: MONDAY MORNER? M^f ?T iSSft 4 ratively unirtfpoftani question whether women are engaged in it. It is by no means so valuable and vital a work as that which women are already doing. The home is not only the most sacred, but the most influential place on the planet. Herbert Spencer says: "If women comprehend all that is contained in the domestic sphere, they would ask for no other. If they could see all that is implied in the right education of chil dren, they would seek no higher func tion." Mankind is really governed, not by presidents, but by principles, not by senators, but by sentiment, not by churches or institutions of any kind, but by ideas. When we think of women's opportunity for moulding these sentiments and ideas, the work of officers in church or state seefns super ficial in the comparison. When we think of women as the mothers of our men, the managers of our nurseries, the teachers of our schools and the in spirers everywhere, we see that they are already sitting in every church council, preaching in every pulpit and voting at every election. AN APOSTLE'S CREED. Rev. 31. D. Shutter Tells What It Should Be. Rev. Marion D. Shutter preached yes terday at the Grand opera house before the congregation of the Church of the Redeemer from Philippians iv, 8. I have called these words the creed of an apostle. We have all heard of what is called the Apostles' Creed a document of which, in all probability, no apostle ever knew. In these words we have what one, at least, of the apostles did believe. The first point in this creed is its suggestiveness. It gives us the qualities of things, rather than the things themselves. Thus it stimu lates thought. When lam told to be lieve in that which is true, or that which is beautiful, I am obliged to use my own powers to find out the things in which these qualities inhere. Sug gestion Is better than demonstration. We must learn to do our own thinking. We sometimes meet those who tell us the Bible is their creed. This is sup posed to be a final answer. But after all, how little does it mean. We want to know of such persons what they believe the Bible teaches upon any given point. We want to know in what books those teachings are contained. Who spoke those words, and under what circumstances they were spoken. Truth is put into the Bible as gold is pnt into a mine. You must dig for it. The gold is there, but all is not gold. The Bible does not settle ques tions as we might wish; it helps us set tle them for ourselves. The second point in this creed is its breadth. It does not complete its circle in the Bible or in the church, much less in any one denomination or religion. It allows us to gather flowers from every field. It includes the true, the beautiful, the just, the honorable, the praiseworthy wherever found. Everything lofty in literature, everything beautiful in art, everything sweet in music, every thing true in science is a part of our faith. It multiplies "the means of grace." It makes use of everything that can exalt and inspire the human soul. It admits variety of work and variety of development. In the third place this creed affords a solid footing for those who doubt. Many have slipped away from the old forms of belief. Who ever thought of God as a wrathful being who could only be propitiated by the blood of His best born son, may now understand that His very name is live, and that He requires no smell of blood to render Him pro pitious. Whoever thought of Him as being revealed only in some narrow and special way, may see that God is in all things true, lovely, just, Honorable, virtuous and praiseworthy. There is something here also for those who have drifted away from all religion. Let them believe in the good and act the good if they can not believe in God. Whoever adopts this line of belief and conduct is serving God, though he may not know it. The veil will at length be lifted irom the face of the Unknown. ONE MORE EDIFICE. The New Park Avenue Congrega tional Church Building. Since the coming of Rev. Frank P. Woodbury, D. D., to the pastorate of the Park Avenue Congregational church the matter of a new church building which has been considered more or less for some time has been receiving gen eral attention of the congregation, which is now worshiping in its chapel on the corner of Park and Franklin ave nues. The steadily-increasing congre gations necessitates better accommoda tions. To build such a church as the occasion demands requires $45,000. The society is not a wealthy one and to raise such a sum was no small undertaking, but it was determined to make the ef fort. It was announced that on yester day morning the matter would be placed before the people and the congregation was out in forces. Dr. Woodbury made a forcible and pointed address, followed by a few short speeches from members of the so ciety, and pledges were then taken amounting to the sum of $27,200. This exceeded the prophecies of the most sanguine and evinces the strong hold the doctor has already acquired upon his people. It is hoped that friends of this enterprise who are interested in making this such a church as is needed in that location will add a sufficient sum to that already subscribed to make it practicable to proceed at once. Should this be done a new church building may be completed before the year goes by and the Park Avenue Con gregational church meet the expecta tions of its friends and supporters. ALL SORTS. There was too much rain for the Washington rink entertainment last night. The spirits were diluted by too much water, as it were. It is reported that a meeting of the friends of Col. Mike Glenn was held yesterday, with a view of devising a plan by whicii the coming county con vention could be controlled and Glenn tl-'cted chairman. The Minneapolis ball team all at tended church in St. Louis yesterday morning, and with the devotional ex ercises still ringing in their ears tried to play ball in the afternoon. Of course the effort was a dismal failure, but it will be a matter of joyful surprise to the cranks that it was not a whitewash. Col. Lowry's motor line discontinues the ten-minute trains too early in the evening. The "theater train" is usually so crowded that it is delayed, and patrons, after being squeezed flat, are belated at the theater. - Elmer Foster, the guardian of the middle pasture for the New York team, is at home on a brief furlough. He has played every game, up to Wednesday, since the exhibition season opened, and will join the team in Chicago on Tues day. Elmer is not hitting the ball to any extent, but can tell how he saved a game with Philadelphia by a circus catch. The proposition to run B. Wood ward, the superintendent at Shotwell, Clerihew & Lothman's, for mayor on the Republican ticket, is not meeting with great favor in the back offices. JR. H. Shadriek will probably be sorry after all that he ate the persimmon. Anti-Poverty Lectures. The Anti-Poyerty society has ar ranged for a series of lectures to be given at Windom hall on every other Sunday evening. The first will be given next Sunday night at 8 o'clock; subject: "Cause and Cure of Trusts." The speakers will be C. J. Buell, Dr. M. P. Finnegan, T. W. Brosnan, J. P. Mc- Gaughey and others. All are invited and a large attendance is requested. On May 27 Rev. Kristofer Janson will speak on "Christ as a Labor Leader." Rev. W. W. Satterlee will take for a topic, "The Relation of Intemperance to Poverty," on June 10. ma The Minnesota Loan and Trust company allows interest on time deposits.

At yesterday's meeting of the United Labor party there was considerable in formal discussion of the petition by C. J. Buell to the legislature, asking the abolition of the tax .on personal prop erty and improvements. Mr. Buell says he has purposely avoided all known friends of the proposition and has sim ply gone among business men. They were found, as a rule, to be well posted on the subjects and he obtained a great ! many signatures. By the next session of the legislature he expects to have a monster petition, preceding names that must carry a great deal of weight. To bring about the change proposed a constitutional amendment must be ; proposed, and this the petition asks the legislature to submit to the people. \ This is not entirely the principle of the single tax advocates, but is looked upon - as a move in that direction. The tax on improvements is regarded by these ad vanced thinkers as simply a penalty for. building or improving, at the same time*! exempting the holdings of the land spec ulator. The single tax theory lays a tax . upon the rental value of all land; and is designed to radically end all effort at laudholding for speculative purposes. - It prevents a man from enjoying "un earned increment." and is calculated to develop the full resources of a territory. j "If the legislature should propose and the people ratify the constitutional ; amendment," said a friend of the meas ure, "the shortage of revenue would, of course, come from the real estate, and the burden of taxation would be more equitably distributed as between the rich and the poor. It would soon bring about a different system of taxa tion, and the rental value of land, on the single tax theory, would be recognized as the only equitable basis. When that was reached, speculative buying would cease and men would not hold land idle. They could not afford to. A man could not go into a new town, buy up the suburbs and wait for a rise. As it rose in value his taxes would rise with it and there would be no money in it. Men would hold only what land they could improve and the working classes would be given a chance. The principle is that a man has no right to buy large tracts of land, simply holding them while others built up a city and made his land valuable, without any assistance from him. Peo ple will begin to understand and appre ciate the justice of this system very soon vow." .-.:-- "HAJRDL.INES" CALLED DOWN. To the Eaitor of the Globe. " I do not consider it good policy, as a general rule, to interfere or take a hand in another man's row. At the same time I cannot refrain from answering without consultation with anyone the tissue of falsehoods signed by on who calls himself "Richard Henry Shadrick ;" who talks of his "manhood" (God save the mark); who slanders the hand that assisted himself and family; who has done him many kindnesses and not an injury, even under provocation, such as would naturally lead any one to kick a cur that was snapping at his heels; who stood by him', even when ad vised that it was to his personal and political detriment and against whom he now lies so infamously, not to defend himself, but to attack one of whom he was once heard to say: "God bless you Dr. Ames, may my right arm rot off if my voice is ever raised against you." The old story of the farmer who warmed a serpent back to life only to; be stung by it but feebly illustrates the' \ venom and treacherous malice displayed by this man Shadrick, of whose hypocrisy and meanness 1 confess I can but faintly express my contempt. i 1 do not care to answer in detail his so called "open letter," but I want to refer to two or three of his statements, of the untruth of which I have personal knowledge. I was foreman of the" News-Letter when this Shadrick was k taken in as what he terms "associate! . editor," at a time when he] was ostracised by his former associates and by those who had gained an idea of his true character. He was in need, and was given the place as much out of charity and in return for a pretended friendship as for his sup posed ability as a writer. He was more than well paid for his services, and it , was his inane "rot" and worked over slush that did more to cause the suspension of the News Letter than all other circum stances combined. When the publica tion of the paper ceased . he was ap pointed inspector on the government building at the personal solicitation of Dr. Ames. He failed to hold the sine cure, though his habits and dis position to "shoot off his mouth" upon any and all occasions, The position he now holds, as traveling agent for a tobacco firm, he obtained , through recommendations from Dr. Ames. In conclusion, 1 want to say that I have not written this for the bene fit of those who know Shadrick per sonally, but for those who may possibly be inflicted with his acquaint ance, or who might be misled by any of his statements, such as were contained, for instance, in his communication which appeared in yesterday's Tribune.

As Mr. Mantell is a Scotchman, the Cala donian club will compliment him by at tending in a body. Mr. Mantell has made a great hit in the present named play, and, in fact, everything he has undertaken.. He is not only gifted with talent, but is an exceedingly hand some man. The support is said to be very fine, and the play is mounted beautifully: "She," the much-read romance by Rider Haggard, will be presented in dramatic form on the stage of the Grand opera for three nights, commencing Ihursdry. The scenery, mechanical effects, and in fact everything connected with the production, is startling and original and the piece will be given a great cast by Messrs. Webster and Brady. J. K. Emmett will yodel in "Fritz" at the Grand next week. "The Drunkard, or The Fallen Saved," was again presented at the People's theater last evening to the usual large Sunday night audience. To-night "hTe Creole, or Article 47," which runs to and including Thursday i night, will be put on. Miss Marie Wellesley takes the part of Cora, the* * Creole, and J. B. Brauii that of George t Duhamel, the hero of the piece. Tickets are already selling rapidly for? Miss Marie Wellesley's benefit at the' People's theater, where she appears in the title role of "Leah, the For saken." i m Nepaul Barley. : In reply to an inquiry from a Dakota: j farmer, R. Gooding Newton, of the ex- " ' perimental farm at Faulkton. says: "I have been raising: the Nepaul barley for, years; it has beards on it until it com- J mences to ripen, when they drop off. The grain when threshed is hulless and looks very much like wheat. I send you a few grains enclosed. In 1886 1~. put in one acre, but got it in very late;-' a severe drouth prevented it from maturing, so did not harvest it. I had selected out about half a pint, which I sowed last spring with a gar den drill, in rows about . ten inches apart, covering about five square rods of ground. I pulled the weeds out from between the rows. The gophers worked in it considerably, but I harvested and threshed out over three pecks of grain. I presume there was over a peck destroyed, which would make a yield of over 100 pounds from one pound of seed. It will yield from thirty to fifty bushels per acre of solid grain, measured like-wheat or rye. It is extremely hardy, and freezing that will cut other barley to the ground does not affect it; it will stand frost about like spring wheat. It matures as early or earlier than other barley. I have none to sell. The sack was sent to the Mitchell fair last fall and it was well 'sampled.* I THE FOURTH PARTY MOVE. United Labor Will Convene at Minne apolis July 17. A FULL TICKET ORDERED. What It Is Hoped to Accomplish— The i Single Tax Theory— The Bnell Petition. The mooted question whether the La bor party would take an active part in Minnesota politics this year received a partial solution yesterday. The com mittee representing the United Labor party got together, and after discussing the situation, decided to put a complete state ticket in the field. L. K. Camp bell, chairman of the committee, pre sided; C. A. S. Higby, secretary, filled the duties of his office, and every ward in the city was represented. H. Ellings stone, of Wright county, was present, also. It was decided to call a state convention at Minneapolis July 17, the character of which is to be decided hereafter. As it will be a mat ter of difficulty to arrive at a basis, the convention will be probably a mass gathering. The committee will meet later, agree upon the details and issue the call. "Will there be an electoral ticket?" asked a Globe reporter. "That will depend upon the result of the conference at Chicago on July 4. It is a conference of advocates of "the single tax, and will be attended by several from Minneapolis, including Buell, Ericson and Higby. If a nation! campaign is decided upon an electoral ticket will undoubtedly be put into Minnesota." "What is the fundamental principle of the United Labor party?" "The high tax on land. It is the Henry George party and that is the principal object of the organization at present." "Will there be a city or county ticket?" "There will surely be a city ticket, but I'm not sure about the county ticket. We are reasonably sure of electing sev eral aldermen." "In what wards?" "It would be premature to tell that." "From which party will you draw the more votes." "That is a matter of opinion, purely. No one can tell, certainly, and I have heard arguments to show that the Dem ocrats would suffer, and just as good ones to show that the larger part of our vote would come from the Re publicans. As a rule we are free traders, and the single tax means no other tax, not even on imports. It is now a question whether our people should not support Cleveland and the Democratic party as a step in the right direction, and that course is advocated by Henry George himself. Locally, I believe our strength will be drawn about equally from the two old parties. In New York, last fall, we certainly drew most largely from the Republicans," -no WHERE THEY MISSED IT In Not Following the Advice of the Women. I Fountain, Minn., April 30.— I aggressive? Perhaps I am. But 1 am one of those who can see where they "missed it"— can see the opportunities lost to me— and I would save others if I can, or at least help them to better re sults from their hard labor, for I know from past experience where I did fail, and how I failed, and know that the early or pioneer settler rose far above his or her former condition. There were men in those days that were sharp enough' to see the opportunities pre sented and never missed their mark. Somegiew rich, and some of the old pioneers of Wisconsin went on and on without accumulating anything beyond the home in town, theyjdid not see how some grew r?ch while others toiled hard and had so little to show as results from their daily toil, both were honest, but one saw the way up and the other did not or could licit. In two or three in stances I know the man missed his mark simply from not following the ad vice of his wife. "What does a woman know of such things'.'" was his reply. And yet, where a woman could and would carry out her own way she has confounded the man, and sometimes he, for a wonder, would acknowledge, "a woman might somehow stumble on a good thing." So 1 say to my pioneer sisters, wherever you are. look around and see if you can not better your con dition and make your home more beau tiful and more attractive around it. Do not be afraid of brown hands and face, that will be of little consequence. In good truth, I doubt if you will think of that in after years when you contemplate the results of your labor. If browned hands and face are a dis grace, then your humble servant, that pens these lines, is woefully lost; but I think that if you or any one else said to me, "It's a disgrace that you did not do more than you have done," I should and would say, "I do know it; but 1 thought then, I can't do it, or I had no time." That "can not" and "no time" was where I missed the opportunity of my life, although I thought then that I did all I could do. All my regret avails nothing now, only as a warning to others, to those of both sexes, do not stand in each other's light. Mrs. Martha Craxdall. -NO TIME." The Fruit of One Forbidden Tree. Fountain, Minn., April 30.— "N0 time!" If every one in this world said he had no time to dress up his grounds and make pleasant places on this earth, what a dreary world this would be? Take ancient, sacred history, and we find that the Great Creator placed Adam and Eve in Eden, a paradise, and bade them dress and keep it— it was an Eden of good and lovely plants for the well-being of the two, they were to dress and keep the place and eat of all, but one tree. • From the fruits of that one tree has come "no time." Now, my pioneer sis ter, you, as well as I, are here to do our part in making, keeping and dressing the earth that we call our own land, and leave to our children when we go hence and this earth will know us no more, a record of well done; something that will help to make those that take our places better for our having lived on a farm. 1 know that it looks hard and dreary with unbroken acres that must be culti vated that we may earn our bread and butter. Yes. bread and butter and all we can grow on a farm is very essential to our well-being, and indispensable, for we must eat to live, but is that all? We must be clothed, but must it be in very fine raiment? Are we obliged to be fol lowers of fashionable follies? No! The pioneer man and woman must be of better stuff than that, must be the leaders for those that come after them, must set an example all that is good, and you, too, can do jour little part as well as others toward redeeming the West from being called "the rowdy West," as well as making a garden of another Eden on a Minnesota farm. "No time" has no place in your life. Work has its reward for you, and if you read a few weeks ago of an aged woman, Mrs. Elizabeth Feller, of Plain view, this state, as published in the Globe, you read of my old neighbor, whose life was a busy one, and she was something of a pioneer, too, in her youth, and was always an active woman and whose ninety-three years are now made very pleasant. I am sure, with her in those days in Oconomowoc, there was no "no time" in her vocabulary. She taught me to find time to do by her unflagging perseverance in all that her hands found to do. This woman, almost thirty years older than myself, and another pioneer woman nearly as old as Mrs. Feller, used to come and visit me often, both live still in a green old age, and I learned the lesson with out their ever suspecting what they were teaching i?ie by their unpretending ways, how much one can do, how much one can live without and enjoy blessings of this world in which we live and have our being. The brave or courageous heart of. the weaken physi cal woman nlay'conquer the worst as well as "learn to suffer and be still." Mrs. Martha Crandale. LARGEST STOCK BREEDER In. Dakota, Also Has One of the Finest Creameries. The manufacture of fine butter is get ting to be a leading industry among the farmers of Dakota during the past few years, and the Hamlin Times points I with pride to the new building recently erected for that purpose at Spaulding's Ranch, Hamlin county, which is the largest institution of its kind in Dakota, and its proprietor claims it to be as well equipped with mod ern improvements for butter and cheese-making as any similar estab lishment in the world. Mr. D. J. Spaulding, proprietor of the above named large farm, and of the enterprise of which we are writing, is well known as the largest stock-breeder in Dakota— in fact stock from his farm is known among breeders all over the western states and territories as the very best. It is not generally known, however, by residents of Hamlin county who live any great distance from the ranch, how great an interest is taken in the breeding of fine cattle. Over 1,000 head were wintered upon the farm.yet we are informed that Mr. Spaulding is desirious of purchas ing many good milch cows for his farm and dairy. But to return to our sub ject—the creamery. The building is built of frame 24x180 feet and in all its apartments is complete with all the appurtenances and appliances of a first class creamery. It also comprises a cheese-making department, where the manufacture of cheese will receive as great attention and care as the man ufacture of butter. Two experienced Eastern dairymen have been engaged to manage the affairs and farmers within a radius of twenty miles will have an opportunity to dispose of either their milk or cream at a good price. Routes will be established and delivery wagons will soon be upon the road to gather the milk and cream in cans which will be furnished from tne creamery. Mr. Spaulding estimates that 2,000 pounds of butter will be made each day in addition to the cheese industry, and arrangements have already been made for its shipment to Eastern markets. Here is an op portunity for the farmers of that county to make some money which will come to them in time of need, and the Times hopes that all who possibly can will take advantage of it. The home market for butter and cheese is soon overrun, and then down goes the price, but with the advantages now offered there will be nothing of that kind in the fut ure, as good creamery butter always commands the highest price in the cities. It will be encouragement to the farmers to raise more cattle— good cattle and there need be no fear as to the management of the concern, as Mr. Spaulding is widely known as a gentleman of ster ling business qualifications and meets with success in every undertaking. His united wealth combined with his en ergy to make his bonanza Dakota farm an enterprise of worth and merit to the country has never failed him and to-day he is coining money from his successful stock-raising and dairy interest. MUST WORK TOGETHER. The Proprietor and Patrons of Cheese Factories to Co-Opsrate E. N. Dodge.in St. Paul Farmer, says: In conducting cheese factories, the pro prietor and his patrons must work to gether if they would make their factory a financial success, as well as a credit to themselves. The patron must not think that all he has to do is to deliver his milk to the factory regardless of its condition. A sour milk pail or milk can will sow the seed of acidity in a ton of sweet milk, the effects of which may not be detected until the cheese-maker begins to raise its temperature and work the curd ; when every process in the day's work must be hurried, and an inferior cheese will, in all propability, be the result of this little negligence on the part of the patron. The expert cheese maker watches every detail. No sour utensil will be found in his factory. From the weigh ing can to the press cloth, his watchful eye and acute smell are always on the alert. Scalding water is his boon com panion; order and cleanliness his watch word. Still, be cannot turn sour milk sweet, nor can he make good cheese from the patron's milk whose cows get their daily supply of water from the stagnant pool, or their daily rations from rank weeds and slough grass. There fore if the patrons of the cheese factory would have their factory gain notoriety for turning out a superior article, they and their cheese maker must work to gether, honestly and faithfully, and if they do this, success is assured.
