lasting and compulsory one.
Hon. H. H. Wells has been ap
pointed member of the following sen

Ex Vice President Schuyler Colfax
is dead. He died at Vankato in this
state yesterday morning. He arrived
on the 3/ilwaukce road from the east
at 10 o'clock and walked to the Omaha
depot, distance of three fourths of
mile with the thermometer at 30 de
grees below zero. After arriving at the
depot he lived ouly about flv© mill
utes. It is supposed that the extreme
cold aud subsequent heat over and ex
ertion caused the stoppage of the flow
of blood to the heart.
Gov. Hubbard's binnial message is
characteristic ofthat worthy official
It abounds In good praetical common
sense and treats of all subjects of gen
eral importance to the people of the
commonwealth and presents the op
of the several department)* in
clear aud business like maimer. The
suggestions of the Governor upon
questions of general legislation are
worthy of careful attention of both
houses of the legislature. Copies of
the message were mailed to TRIBUNE
readers last Thursday in supplement
form. It is worth reading and pre
serving for future reference.
The productive capacity of the steel
rail mills of the United States is about
1,600,000 tons per annum. About 600
000 tons weut into new lines last year
aud the amount used as renewals, new
second track, and siding is estimated
at 650,000 tons, or 5'42 per cent of the
total amount of rails in track. This
rate is equivalent to the renewal of
the lines ouce in 1S'4 years. At the
end of 1SS3, a little more than half the
track of the United States was iron.
The consumption of rails for main
tenance ran down from 10'30 per cent
in 1S72, wheu steel rails were first
used, to 5'92 per cent in 1881, and re
ceded again to 5'42 per cent in 1883.
The production of steel rails increased
from 83,391 tons in 1872.
Capt. Eads, who has lately made an
inspection of the situation, now de
clares that within two years the Mis
sippi is likely to be defected from its
present course past New Orleans down
the Atchafalaya directly to the Gulf.
Only a tough clay bar across Old
River intervenes, and that is being
rapidly swept out by tha current. The
Times Democrat calls earnestly upon
Congress to do something immediate
ly to avert the disaster to the metro
polis, planting interest of south
ern Louisiana, as well as the com
merce of the great river. That paper
asserts that an expenditure of only
$12,000 to .$15,000 is necessary to obvi
ate the more imminent danger.
The people of the state of 3/innesota
are very much dissatisfied with the
work of the senate of two years ago
and were axious to have new com
mfttees appointed for this year. The
senators realized the fact and them
selves voted for new committees. In
the face of all of this Lieutenant-Gov
ernor Gil
man reappoints all old com
mittees with but few unimportant ex
ceptions. The committee on railroads
is particularly objectionable. On that
committee the railroad men had and,
we think, still have a majority. Mr.
Oilman claims to be on the side of the
farmer, but just how lie can make this
claim and his action in reappointing
objectionable committees seem con

Thirty-five years ago, remarks the
Commercifl.' Advertiser, the name of

could not boast ipf a single building.
To-day each of tlhese cities has popu
lation little slicwA of 100,000 souls and
each is the center of a robust growth

vualactivity. There were buildings
erected in the twin cities during the
present year at a cost,of nearly $15,
000,000, and there would seem happily
to be no interruption of any sort in
their career of solid prosperity. Truly
in no other country could so amazing
and proud a sight be seen as St. Paul
and Minneapolis now present. Among
other nations progress in city making
is the growth of centuries. With us
a first class metropolis may some
times almost magically arise in the
course of a single generation.
Scientific American: Of -all the
people who clean their teeth regularly
it is certain that a very large propor
tion only do so once a day, and that
generally at the time of their morning
ablutions. A much smaller num
ber also do at retiring, but the num
ber of those make a practice of regu
larly brushing their teeth after eating
the most important tfme of all is in
deed very small. It is while eating
that all little cavaties or interstices
between the teeth become the reposi
tories of fragments ot food, or traces
of some acids in the food are left on
the teeth, to cause Incipient decay,
,r"7 and hasten it where it has already
I commenced. It is of course desirable
to brush the teeth on rising in the
morning and before retiring at night,
but it is of infinite more importance
that they should be thoroughly
cleaofted after eating.

New Orleans, La., Jan. 8.

of such and undertaking now

leans Jan. 24 and will reach its des

the steamer Great Eastern is on the
ocean sailing hitherwards.
Let not your readers be frightned at
the wild reports of high charges for
living in this city.—The writer called
on Wolf & Moulton, 23 Carondelet
#treet,"who act as commissioners be
tween the hotels, boarding house and
•'rooms to let" people, and was in
formed that the average price paid by
visitors for room and board was less
than two dollars per|day.
J. W. Ryckman, Special Com
missioner, has written the following
interesting letter In answer to ques
tions regarding the Exposition.
Iu answur to many inquiries, as
Special Commissioner to the World's
Fair, I deem it expedient to submit to
the press and the public a brief state
ment of sober facts concerning the
outlook. The Exposition is rapidly
assuming completion. By Jan. 20 if
no extraordinary obstacles are en
countered, thegrounds, buildings, and
exhibits will be in almost perfect con
dition, save in machinery hall. It is
scarcely advisable to come here be
fore that date. In a work of suclf
phenomenal proportions, crowded
within the limited time of twelve
months, anything like order on the
day of formal opening was not expec
ted. A very serious problem has beeu
encountered that could only be met
thro' the tirless vigilance, indomit
able energy and sagacious prudence
of Director General Burke, viz: with
means two thirds less than were con
sumed in the preparation of the Phila
delphia Centennial, the managers
have been compelled to provide ac
commodation for the largest collec
tion of home and foreign exhibits
ever displayed at one time in the
world. The Main building presents
such an agglomeration of industrial
products from every quarter of the
globe as will probably not be wit
nessed again in America for a quarter
of a century. So much is shown in
every branch of science, art, me
chanics and manufacturies that no
man or woman can afford to remain
away. If there were no more to see
than the exhibits in the Government
building, it would be worth a trip
round the world to examine them.
All the departmeuts of the National
Seat of Government have forwarded
aud installed vast labyrinths of in
teresting and instructive objects. All
the States and Territories have sent
rare collections of their resources in
such abundance aud diversity as to
astonish even the best informed men.
Theforeighu exhibits are wonderfully
extensive and attractive. The beauti
ful Horticultural Hall is heavily
stored with the rarest flora of the
tropics. The Art Hall is about
finished and I'm assured the paint
ings, now here will make an unusual
array of foreign and native art. All
the annexes are commodious and well
filled. The grounds are charming, I
have no hesitation In saying that in
all material respects this will be the
greatest exlilbtion ever held.
It Is not surprising, therefore, that
on the completion of their task the
managers find themselves face to lace
with a shortage of $200,000 In their re
quirements. They have made the
funds at their disposal go a great way.
That the amount has not beeu ade
quate is wholly the fault of the people
whose demands for space have neces
siated the building of such enormous
structures and the installation of such
a gigantic system of exhibits. I am
confident that in less then a week the
deficit will be made up and the last
drawback thus removed.
I am glad of the opportunity to tes
tify to excellent management, the un
tiring zeal, the fidelity to trust, the de
termined publie spirit, the selfuncri
fice of every member of the Board of
Managers. To Director General
Burke the Country owes a debt of
gratitude. He has hazarded his life
in a faithful discharge of the deep re
sponsibility put upon him. To his
patriotism, daring perseverance and
deepseated love of country, more than
all else, the nation owes the consum
mation of this masterly achievement.

•i^'CwwHfh flrrt Calf.
It is often the case wheu a heifer
has her first calf that the farmer
thinks she will iiQt give more milk
than will keep her culf in good con
dition, aud let them run together to
teach her the mystery of being milked
when she hasher next calf says an
exchange. In this decision there are
two mistakes that go far to spoil the
cow for future usefulness. "Cows,"
says a uonteiuporray, are largely crea
tures of habit,'and with their first
calf everything is new and strange to
them, and they readily submit to be
milked and think it is all right but
suffer them to runwith the ealf the
first season, aud a vicious habit is
established that they will hardly for
get in a life time. If lliey ever
submit to be milked quietly, it is evi
dently under protest. But there is a
greater objection than this—the calf
running with the cow drawn the milk
every hour or two so that the milk
vesslesare not at any time, distended
with milk, though the.quantity sec
creted in a given time may be large.
But this is the natural time to distend
the milk ducts aud expand the udder
to a good capacity for holding milk
When, with her next calf, you require
the milk to be retained twelve hours,
the udder becomes hard and paiuful
and the milk leaks from the teats, or
more likely nature accommodates the
quantity of milk secreted to the ca
pacity to retain it, aud the cow be
comes permanently a small milker.
Much of the future character of a cow
therefore, depends upon her treatment
with her first calf. Everything that
disturbs the quietness of a cow im
pairs the milk both in quantity and
quality. To obtain the best results,
therefore, there should be a regular
time and place of milking, and as far
as possible the milking should be
done by the same person. Any cow
can be milked dry in a few weeks by
irregular milking, sometimes at in
tervals of twenty-four hours aud
sometimes of six. Separation from
her usual compauy, a change to new
location, a strange milker, and above
all a blustering manner and scolding
voice, are sources of irritation that
more or less impair the milking quali
ties of a cow. No cow under the in
fluence of fear will give her full quan
tity of milk.—Minneapolis Tribune.
The following is from the Chicago
Dairyman: If we were asked what
is the vital moment with miik, we
would say, the hour after it comes
from the cow. Milk, as it leaves the
udder, is about 98 degrees Fahrenheit,
and it is poured in large cans, will re
tain a heat of ninety for hours, if the
weather is warm, Decomposition
inay be said to begin with milk the
moment it leaves the udder, au(Lthere
is nothing like heat to accomplish
this. To avoid the danger, the only
way is to cool the milk at once.
Place tiie cau tu a trough or tub of
fresh, cool water. If ice cau be put
iu the water all the better. If miik
is to be kept oyer night to go to the
factory iu the morning the above
practice is imperative. The cool
nights of the fall months are particu
larly misleading to the dairymen,
They think, because the nights are
cool there is uo need for taking the
trouble to cool Hie milk when first
drawn from the cow. No one should
ever trust his own feelings as to the
condition of the weather. Always
consult the thermometer, but even
the coldest nights will not save the
milk if it Is allowed to remain hot in
the cans for any length of time.
How to Attach a Boy to Farm Life.
One of the surest methods of attach
ing a boy to the farm is to let him
have something upon it as his own.
Give hiui a small plot of ground to
cultivate allowing him the proceeds
for his own use. Let him have his
own steers to break, or is sheep to
care for. The ownership of eyen a
fruit tree, planted, pruned and brought
to bearing with his own hands, will
inspire.him with interest that no
mere reward or wages can give. In
addition to the taste for a farm life,
which such a course will cultivate,
the practical knowledge gained by
the boy will be of the highest ^alue.
Being interested he will be in- re ob
servant, and will thoroughly learn
whatever is necessary for his success.
Do not when the boy is in a i.-.i..ition
to realize from the sale of his produce
or animals (as many farmers very
wrongly do) take the money that is
rightly his—the result of his care, la
bar and anxiety but otherwise allow
him to do just as his taste aud plans
suggest. Another and equally im
portant advantage will be to accustom
him early to feel the responsibility.
Many young men, though well ac
quainted with all the manual opera
tions of the farm, fall utterly when
intrusted with tiie management of an
estate for want of an experience in
planning for themselves. It is a great
deal better that responsibility should
be gradually assumed than that a
young man should be first thrown
upon himself on attaining his ma
jority.—Correspondence in Farmers
Professor Shelton, of the Kansas
Agricultural College puts the question
of sheltering stock in an exceedingly
pointed man tier. He has lately been
feeding ten steers in an experimental
way. He found that for the period of
ten days ending December 2Gtli, the
average gain per head was thirty-one
and one-tentli pounds. The weather
was warm and sunny. The steers
were fed iu au unbattend board shed.
During the succeeding.ten days when
the cold was intense almost the whole
time, the same steers, fed on the same
rations and in the same sli?d, gained
but sijf and six-tenth pounds per head.
About a year ago the Professor fed a
lot of pigs for three Wfcelfs of the
coldest weather in open yards, and
found them to consume more than
three times the amount of food to a
pound of increase than the same num
ber of pigs in the warm basement of
the barn. He has a cow Jtept in a
bleak "Kansas barn" which ohrinks
in her milk from one fourth to one
half after twenty-four hours of very
severe weather. From all this the
conclusion is that you can't burn feed Sthewts and 'children?™3'
as fuel to support the body of au ani
and malstow it away in the form of
muscle and Tat. The fact is that our far
mers throw away one-half their feed in
furnishing animal heat tlr.it they
might just as well save by paying a
small lumber bill and expending a
moderate amount of labor.

After dinner it was arranged by a
few among the crowd to go to camp
meeting, which was held about a mile
from the house. Accordingly vehicles
were made ready and away we started.
Long before we arrived upon tho
ground? we were made ajyare of the
vicinity by stentorian shouts, and pres
ently we came in sight of the sheds, log
huts and cottages built for the accom
modation of the campers. The Florida
darky knows his value and does not
look up or bow down to tho white pop
ulation as a rule, like his black brotliers
of Southern States. Not he he rather
patronizes them, except in the cases of
old family slaves who had not outlived
their good manners. It must have
been one of these, an aged man and
stooping shoulders and a patriarchal
face, who invited us to "witness de ex
ercises." We had already "witnessed"
some of the exercises of a few outsiders
who were very full of whisky, but they
were probably got of the brothers.
There were no seats, The people were
standing, reclining on the ground and
in some instances tneeling. An African
preacher with peculiar countenance
and immense ears was holding forth on
"De Day ob Jedement." "Yo'll be

burst forth at this, and as tbe daring
preacher pictured the torments of that
opposite condition to paradise the ells
and shouts and even shrieks bccanie
deafening. One big black woman,
whose vociferations were louder than
the rest, managed to keep one eye on
and one on the preacher during the
pntire sermon,
The preacher's description pf heaven
was amusing, the principle delights of
that region seeming to consist in hav
ing no work to do, no corn to shuck,
no 'taters to hoc, no cotton to pick,
and the hallelujahs were correspondingly
intensified. Then the singing! The
most graphic pen could not do justice
to that. One song, ig which even the
children participated, swinging and
rolling their small black bodies, was
something like this:
Ho, wo! Come into dls mcctln',
ponjc pore souls:
all pardoned,
Com»\ pore soylf:

And so on, to a wailing dirge-like tune.
I did not hear any very cheerful music,
but all smote tho ear with sadness, no

A Monkey Fond of Riding.
tfot long ago a gentleman who rath
er prided himself on a very fine stud pf
hunters found that tho horses did not
appear properly refreshed by their
nightly rest. One of the grooms, on
being desired to keep a strict watch,
discovered that a tame monkey belong
ing to the house was accustomed to riae
on the horses' backs almost all night
preventing them from taking sufficient
His master, on discovering his pench
ant for riding, and being averse to kill
ing the monkey on account of his
horsemanship, supceeded in curing him
effectually of his love for borses. The
next time that the hounds met hp had
the monkey put into a full hunting suit,
and secured by a strap to a saddle of
his most spirited hunter, and took him
away to the meet. When the fox was
found the horse pricked up his ears at
the well known sound and started off
at once. The chase happened to be a
particularly long and severe one, the
monkey, of course, from his light
weight, being far ahead of the legiti
mate huntsmen.
A countryman who was coming from
the direction the fox had taken was in
terrogated by some of the sportsmen
who had been thrown out as to the po
sition of the hunt, and told them that
the fox wa8 looking tired, but that none
of the huntsmen were near except a lit*
tie gentleman in a yellow jacket who
took leaps beautifully. Sure enough,
master Jocko was in at the death, but
did not by any means appreciate the
honor. After the fox had been killed
there was a long ride home again, by
the end of which time the monkey
seemed thoroughly wearied out. After
this experience he was never known to
mount a horse asrain.—Dublin Herald.

impassioned words Q.111I stirjring gest
ures. His sentences, always carefully
constructed and committed to memory,
were uttered with precision, clearness,
and force. His gestures, though some'
times too uniform and measured, were
yet expressive and graceful. His tones
were rich and varied, and his language
was chaste, elegant, and, at times,
poetical. His nature was too fastidi
ous, his temperament too cold, his sen
sitiveness to reproach too keen, his
constitutional reserve too habitual and
repelling, to succeed in those arenas of
public debate where heavy blows were
given and taken, and where the loud
voice, the rustic njanner, the hale-fel
low sociality and repklps? daring had
often more to do with results than fche
most exquisite and polished phrases
and a charming voice. In congress he
failed. He failed not only to acquire
the influence due to his superiority as a
scholar and speaker, but he failed also
in the simplest perceptions of states
manship. He shrank from responsi
bility he dreaded innovation he could
not encounter, in a bold, manly way,
the hostile sentiment of a clique or
party, much less of a nation, and he
fell into an almost abject timidity and
irresolution, which was hardly disguis
ed under the name of conservatism. He
4id ppt grapple with the great questions
of'the day 'tfith any (Jiscernment he
bowed almost obsequiously toward the
past and great traditional names he
trembled like one ignorant and super
stitious before the future. He took
counsel rather of his apprehensions
than of his conscience.—Ben. Perley
A Question for the Poptojty
Every now and then factg come t©
light which seem to conflict strangely
with the theories of the doctors. For
instance, at Howdon, a dirty, desolate
village on Tyneside, a boy was born
who at the time of his birth had the
following extraordinary number of
grandparents and ^reat-grandparents
alive. The grandfather and grand
mother on the father's side were nearty
and well and so were both parents of
the grandmother and the mother of the
grandmother. The grandfather and
grandmgtjier on the mother's side were
active and strong aiid so jyere both
parents of the grandmother. The'
thus had four grandparents and live
great-grandparents alive, each of whom
was in active work, earning his or her
own livelihood. Yet the village where
these halo and hearty grandsires and
granddames live and flourish is one of
the most unsanitary in England. Open
sewers run down the center of somo of
the streets. Until a few years ago tho
water supply was from one shallow
well. Only one .solitary scavenger ia
employed On' half-tiiho for eiyansiw,
repairing and maintaining all -the
streets. Houses have been condemned
wholesale as unlit for human habita
tion, tQ the intense disgust of tho peo
ple. Yet, notwithstanding all tnese
adverse conditions, these families live
and thrive. -IVW Matt Gazette,
