WEDNESDAY, MAY 11,1887. Brainerd's only first class hotel, the Villard, has been burned. The Minneapolis Journal Uiinks the campaign liar lias been hired uy the enemies of the iuterstat© com merce law. W. C. Brower is to edit a new paper which is being started in St. Cloud. Mr. Bower is au able writer and will make the new paper a success. Since navigation has opened Dulutli is the busiest city the world Even Chicago, St. Paul and Minne apolis appear sluggish beside her. A. Dewey, of Graceville, is about to start a daily paper in Brainerd. A real estate syndicate will turulsh the funds which are to be sunk in tlie un dertaking. Brainerd Journal: We don't In tend to crawl into a hole and pull the hole in utter us every time there is an election for fear some crank will get hot and withdraw his patronage. The farm mortgages of the United States are estimated to aggregate two billion dollars, the interest ou which even at seven per cent, amounts to the enormous ?uni of $ 140,t00,000. Thirty buildiugs were burned Ht Minot on Monday, of which fourteeu were saloons. As there are sixteen saloous left, the danger that some un fortunate will die of thirst is averted. Rochester Post: It has beeu very generally and frequently suggested that the last legislature was short on smartness, but they knew enough to make the tirst day on which it was lawful to go fishing for trout come ou Sundav. The Grant County Herald ofElbow Lake enjoyed the proud distinction of being the only paper published in that county last week. This week the Herman Enterprise makes its appear ance and the Herald drops into its proper relative position. Brown's Valley Reporter. Every town is cursed with "chronic kickers" and grumblers. Some towus more than others. It would be no loss to Brown's Valley if every kicker iu the place would pack his grip and git. Darn a kicker anyway. Brainerd Tribune: Some of the railroads may be honestly trying to live up to the spirit of the commercc act, having no disposition to put on the screws. In the case ot some others there is good ground to suspect the presence of the colored gentleman in the woodpile. ,. J. \V. Reynolds Is doing good warft was fcf North field New: The secret of good talking is to have something to say, say it well, cut it short and be ready to listen. The best talker who will not listen is a bore and a nuisance, and so the verdict is given against him every time. To know how to be silent in many languages is a great accomplishment possessed by few. Bed Wing Republican: It is to be hoped that steps will be taken to make the state fair this year more than a mere show—a place to stare at mammoth products and get tired. Let some method be devised of bringiug to the attention of visitors the methods by which the best results have been reached, and then let all that is useful be gathered up and pub lished in a book. It is stated that the law forbids any pensioner from bargaining, selling or promising his quarterly pension to any dealer or other person, before it has become due and been paid on the other hand, all persons are for bidden by the law to accept the same in any manner as security, for credit or otherwise. The fine is fixed at $100 for any violation of the act, and is equal upon the soldier or the dealer. The embossed envelopes with a new design in stamps are now ready for issue. They are of the 1,2, 4, and 5 cent denominations. The 1 cent stamp has the head of Franklin and the heads of Washington, Jackson and Grant appear on the 2,4, and 5 cent denominations, respectively, The legend "United States Postage" surmounts the stamp instead of the "U. S. Postage" on the stamp now in use. The St. Paul Globe is still trying to be-little R. A. Costello, but can have no influence in this direction. The people all know that Mr. Costello was an excellent, wide-awake and influ ential representative in the last legis lature and to them it makes no differ ence whether he ate at the Ryan, Merchants or at a private boarding house. As for congressional aspira tions, Mr. Costella has none, but he would make an able congressman just the same. Cowboys have a language of their own which no "tenderfoot" may at tain unto until he has served his novRiate. They call a horse herder a"horse wrangler," and a horse breaker a "broncho buster." Their steed is often a "cayuse," and to dress well is to "rag proper." When a ow boy goes out on the prairie he "hits the flats." Whiskey is "family dis turbance," and to eat is to "chew" His hat is a "cady," his whip a '.'quirt," his rubber coat a "sliker," his leather overalls are "chaps" or "chapperals" and his revolver is a "45." Bacon is "overland trout" and unbranded cattle oattie n*e jcks." Aa theTKIBUNKhasstated frequent ly the railroads of the eounlry are greatly alarmed over recent railway legislation. They seem to think the people are at last aroused and Intend haying th^ ^rotci'timi of law against railway extortiou anA injustice in the future. Hoping to make the people sorry for at tempt nig any railway legislation at all, the various roads are combining to make the inter-state commerce law unpopular and mo noply-favored men and papers and too many people who have beeu deceived by them are crying creating sutlers upon so-called in oehatr csnJ-eo-yt indemnity lands and will do all in his power to establish the right of the settlers to the title to the lands they occupy. It he succeeds those interested will certainly begin to think "nothing is too good for Rey nolds." ,4tlielaw some must be repealed" and "business interests are ruined" etc. etc. So far only the railroads have been heard from. They have placed arbitrary, unexpected and unwarranted constructions upon the law and have enforced them to the utmost extent. The roads have also made many arbitrary rules and rates and in many instances have de scended to petty nieaunesses in the transaction of their business and have laid everything upon the broad shoulders of the inter-state commerce law. In this way they succeeded ill temporary public ,-eiiti- ment against the law. Now,however, we believe there is to be a change. The national S»oard of railway com missioners have organised and begun work. Their powers are ample and we expect soon to see many of the abuses, which have sprung up since April 1st aud which are alleged to be due to the inter-state commerce law corrected. The commissioners have written au "open letter" which is full of promise and which has about it the rigut kind of ring. We quote as follows: "Congress has not taken the man agement of the railroads out of the hands of the railroad companies. It has simply established certain gener al principles under which iliter-state commerce must be conducted. It has enacted that .all charges tor inter state transportation shall l»e reason ale aud just has prohibited all man ner of unjust discriminations has forbidden all undue and unreasonable preference and advantages has re quired reasonable Mid equal facilities for the interchange of traffic and has prohibited the pooling of freights. That, in substance, is the lnter-state commerce law. "There is nothing novel in these provisions. They simply bring back the business of the common carriers to the well settled principles of the common law, yet no one can deny that there was urgent need of their statutory formulation. Alleged diffi culties in putting them in operation ouly disclose examples of the extent to which they have beeu violated in the past." "The language and the tenor of the act wholly fail to justify railroad managers, who refuse to accept re sponsibilities, decline to offer rates, neglect to announce conditions of traffic, embarrass the customary in terchange of business and impose stagnation upon trade. It is still more unjustifiable for railroad coni ««r» panies to make use or rac & clauses of the law, ignoring Its modi fying and enlarging words and form ulas, in order ,to impose additional burdens upon localities, trades, pro fessions, manufacturers, consumers, classes of travelers or employes, straining and repressing every con struction in favor of the corporation treasury, and quoting the new law as their authority for all manlier of petty exactions. The powers of tli'e com mission are entirely adequate to cope with such conduct, the existence of which is not affirmed, although it has been somewhat publicly sugges ted." 'The farmer that succeeds," said one of them to us the other day, "is he who always keeps his promise, seldom borrows, never lends without taking a receipt, is never without a memorandum book and pencil, and then uses them provides shelter for his stock, keeps his tools and imple ments (when not in use) under cover, has a garden, grows small fruits, raises a yariety of vegetables, keeps horses, cows, pigs, sheep, poultry and bees rotates his crops, grows corn wheat, oats, barley, buckwheat and clover has a shepherd dog owns a few harness-maker's, blacksmith and carpenter tools saves the scraps of all old or broken iron puts up ice in winter attends every farmers' insti tute, clubor grange meeting takes an active interest in elections work ing and voting for the honest candi date regardless of his politics visits and aids the sick never patronizes the merchant the second time who purposely deceives him always buys the best has as little as possible to do with a dissipated man avoids law suits meets engagements promptly, or sends an explanation never signs a paper for a stranger always inter ested in the prosperity of his neigh bors loves his wife and children speaks kindly to all animals sells his butter, eggs, honey, vegetables and fruits to consumers: offers noth ing for sale except it is in the neatest, most tempting and attractive con dition possible never pays a debt without taking a receipt contributes to and visits his agricultural fair writes to ail advertisers of live stock, poultry, farm implements, etc., for catalogues and prices, whether he wants to buy at present or not, and thus keeps posted on prices keeps book account of all transactions takes time to carefully read his local paper, the city weekly and agricul tural paper, and occasionally writes to them tor publication.

SCHLOTTMANN, SECT Under the new Inter-State com menv law Homethlnjr may *be ex pected from competition, a means of relief which was denied Us under the old pooling system, now forbidden. At present we are not reaping much benefit from this possibility and pro bability, thought there are indications of fierce competition being inaugura ted sooner or later. We have not to be told that the average railroad management is an obstreperous cou "cern, and that it hatrahvays required considerable ingenuity to make all the management anything approach ing a happy family. The pooling system—which would haye been bet ter named if it had been called the fleecing system—kept the vast ma jority of the roads marching breast to breast in the game of plunder. The new law sets every tub on its own bottom, and when the railroad people get over their white-heat anger over the law and against the public that so steadi v demanded the enactment o some kind of a law, they will fall out among them** Ives and then the cutting of rates will begin in earnest We have no idea that a concert of action among the managers will be of any considerable duration. The long haul rates will not be sustained and as they come down, of course the short-haul rates must come down al so. We believe that even the present law, imperfect as it may be, will yet bring us much relief, though it may not be thoroughly enforced—Western Rural. There is trouble tire wing among the railroads already, under the new law. lVace cannot long continue and when thieve* fail out honest meu get their dues. There are indications of a tight all along the line, and some of the roads are get! ing rid of their conservative lTi ia!s and replacing them with more aggressive men, that they may deai harder blows. Freights are not going i main way up in the skies. It would not be natural. Every road has want it can earn, and canliot pool itseaii.ii ys with those of some other road. Kveiy road, there fore, will want all it can get4 and if it can secure an advantage it would be a curious exhibition for it to decline to take it. We may expect a general cutting of rates. But what we want to do is to enforce a faithful execution of the law which can be secured only by a steady agitation of the subject and thorough organization of the peopl The law contains provisions that are clea rly in the interests of the people and we must compel the commission to gfve us the benefit of these pro visions. It is already announced that some roads are violating the law in the matter of passes. Let auy one who knows of such violation report it to the commission, with the evidence sustaining it. The commission can not act without information. The law connot enforce itself. In the first place the commission must be in formed of acts of violation, and as a rule this information mustcome from the people. One great merit of this V law is that it costs the complainant ke use Oi i S"- uiTiTnuk'l-'A tLt'" "vjlf'Vditureof a^lHtie time and postage to put the offending road in tlie position of a defendent be fore the commission. Every one of us should be willing to take enough interest in the law to give any inform ation of a violation of its provisions which we may possess. Keeping our eyes open for offences against the law let us be reasonably patient and al ways firm, remembering that the matter is a complicated one, and that it will require time for the commission to get it fully iu hand—Western Rural.

The opening article on "The Diet of Nursing mothers," by Edward L. Patridge, M.

Dr. W. B. Canfield discusses "The Development ot Speech in Infants," from the first utterances till the formation of the child's vocabulary, with its defects and peculiarities. There are many interesting hints to be found iu "What Not to Name the Baby." Dr. Yale treats a much debated question in-'Eight Months ana other Prema ture Children," showing how prema turely-born children may often be saved by care and attention.

There is a cat doctor who runs a drug store in Washington who, it is said, is do ing the most thriving practice of any alle viator of the ills of the feline and canine races of any man in his profession in the whole country. This physician has the highest class of callers of any professional man in the city, as only the most aristo n^itic can afford to have an expert wait upon tlieir pets. At times as many as three or four carriages, owned by the most relined and wealthy people at the national capital, are drawn up in front of the drug store and office, and his business is so large that customers with tlieir patients have to wait their turns, like men in bar ber shops, It is seldom that a man enters the drug store or oflice for the purpose of receiving a professional call from the doc tor. They are almost invariably women. The doctor was philosophizing the other day to some gentlemen on the general ails of cats and dogs, during which he stated that more trouble came from a lack of fresh air and exercise than anything else. He especially deprecated the fact that these household pets were guarded so closely in the house, and were not allowed to romp arouud like children. "I could name," he said, "families in this city that guard as closely their pet cats and dogs as they do their children. Large numiiers of them have cribs and cradles and lounges made for their pets and cushioned in the most comfortable manner possible. At one place visited re cently I found a fine old Maltese reclining on a pillow of down. When I asked for it for the purpose of making an examina tion the lady of the house lifted it as care fully as if it -were a tiny baby. She had delicate spoons and forceps and a doche to inject medicine into the poor thing's ears. There was a swab of silk and cotton to cleanse its throat, as it had had something like diphtheria, and when I spoke of a severe medicine as the only hope for re covery she threw up her hands in that same horror mothers do when extreme measures are to be resorted to to save their infants."—Indianapolis Journal. Old and. "w C.»««.mi. Natvu ally there is war to the knife be tween the advocates of the old and those of the new systems. The new men say that naval warfare has reached that point of scientific development that a man needs be a scientist in order to be a good officer. The older officers admit the necessity for an advance over the methods employed with wooden vessels and sailing ships, yet don't agree to the proposition that in four years a young fellow can acquire all the sciences. They say with truth that every thing done now at the academy is purely experimental, while many tilings, like giving the cadets meant for line officers, the engineers and the naval constructors all exactly the same course of instruction, are preposterous. Nothing wider apart than the duties of these officers can be imagined. An engineer doesn't need to know how to build a ship, nor a ship builder how to navigate a vessel, yet they arc turned out in a batch on graduation day, all having gone through precisely the same course of instruction. Funny stories are told alxmt these walking compendiums of universal knowledge. One Saturday some time ago the second class were all taken on board the Constellation for a cruise down the bay. They were to have charge of the engine room and everything. When the cadet engineers and their instructor—all learned in the books-—tried to start the engines the pistons would not move a peg. In vftiu was every expedient tried. The engines were carefully examined, and a perplexed and perspiring crowd were at their wits' end. At last a stoker, peering about, discovered that the scientists had forgotten to turn the steam on. Tlii»was not specifically set down in UMJ books, but as soon as this small particular was attended to the engines worked beauti fully. Washington Cor. New York Mail and Express.
