CaDton Advooato, Sfc Opparsd Brorby of Madison, this state, are in the city with a view of eetablishing a wind mill factory, provided sufficient en »mrage(uent is given by the citizens. They have erected a mill at the corner of Fifth street and Broadway, where any one can examine its workings. The feature** of this mill is its power, dura ability, simplicity, automatic governing and capacity to withstood severe wind pressure. The peculiar cooHtruction of the fan* give it immense power, and yet there is nothing complicated about it. Judges who have examined the mill say it is away ahead of rnoet mills now on the market. No doubt the ee tahhshment of a factory for tba manu facture of these mills would be a great advantage to Canton, and we hope ar rangements can be made whereby it oan be located here.

The evening of September 19, 1090, wfll long be a memorable one in tho history of Madison, aa one of the times when her houseof public entertainment waa crowded to the utmoat capacity, and as an evening when oocured an event of more than ordinary interest and oeter tainment, the contesting in public speech of nine young ladies from various parts of the state for the Demoreat gold medaL The peraon who makes possible theae juvenile oratorical exhibitions ia W. Jennings Demorest, of New York City, known the world over as a publisher of f.«hon periodicals and manufacturer of patterns for the construction of female wearing apparel. The contests are main tamed by Mr. Demoreat in the interest of temperance reform, and whatever shall be the result of hi* labora in thia direc tion, certain it is that he is devoting muoh time and tbouaende of money in ita proeecution. There are four grades of prisat* offered a silver medal, a small gold and a large gold medal and a gold medal eel with diamonds. The contestant* may not be older than '21 year*. The selections are made from a book published by Mr. Demoreat, many of the "pieces" being from his own pen. The claases are usually of not more than eight, and when eight silver medal* are won in a district or state a gold medal contest is ordered and the eight persons having won silver medals can oontoet for it. Eight gold medals call for a large gold medal contest and eight of these laat for a diamond medal eon test. Thus far only one diamond medal has been awarded. The entertainment laat erooing' was opened with music by a choir oomposed of Messrs. N. M. Stott, J. Jonea and F. h. Meaae, Mrs. Meaae and Miseea Sooggin, Graham and Davison, followed by the reading of a passage of scripture by Mrs. Anna Simmons of Brown county, and prayer by He v. J. T. Ames. Mr*. Horning of St. Lawerenoe presided over the meeting, announcing the titles of the different selections, the names of the orators being withheld from the audi enoe. Tho Heat speaker istroduaad waa Mws Stella Brown of Montrose, MoCoofc county, the victor in the ailver medal contest held in the opera house la«t spring. Miss Brown's "piew" was written in verse, entitled "A Martyred Mother." It was the most difficult of all the nine selections, requiring a great deal of acting aa well aa a frequent change of tone and ponition and difficult, unnatural gesturing. It was a combina tion of three distinct characters—a broken-hearted mother, a maniac and a drunken son. Miss Brown's effort waa admirable, and we doubt not it waa the opinion of many that the triumph of tha evening was her'a But though abs did not get the prize, it will be a conaol nig thought to her and her friend* u k now tiiot ahe atood ooiy seoand ut the list. No. "National Prohibition," waa given by Miss Frank S. Bennett, grand daughter of Judge Bennett of Clark Frank is only nine yearn old, and to sa that ahe is a prodigy is not putting it tot strong. Many a practioed orator would have hesitated before that vast throng, but this little midget waa as calm and unruffled in bar delivery a4 though she had been rehearsing alontt in her r«iom. An old speech f.-om and* a mite of humanity was striking proof of W aal undeveloped powers there are in the rising generation, and elicited more ap plause than any other effort of the even ing. But after all it was remarkable only in coming from so young a person the same selection from one of more mature years would not have sounded the same and hm the judges are not per uutted to consider youth in their mark ings, Franks general score was no*, higher than that of a half doaen othor of the contestant*. The efforts of numbsrslhrso, four an five, while all very cmlitable, wore not more remarkable than might hove been expected from persons of their age. The triumph of the evening reserved for No. 6, Miss Hannah Mc Donald, of High more, who preeeuted "Patriotic Prohibition." MISH McDonald is a young lady seventeen or eighteen yean of ago, doea not poeseae an unusu ally attractive form or face, and viewed from the auditorium aa she aat among the contestants on the stage gave no evidence to the audience that she, of all the nine ambitiuua, &xpect«ui speakers would lie the ana choeea tor the honors of tho evening. Nor was A!i«« McDonald's selection an eaaier one or more susceptible of fine manipulation thaa any of the others. Her victory waa won on merit alone. She had the best general delivery, the easiost style, most mfident manner and graceful and ap propriate gestures, piost distinct pro nunciation, and withal came the nearest to the ideal orator of any of her sis (era, and it waa evident at once that if any one of tho three remaining cocteatonta Were to overreach her in any of the pouita of merit above enumerated they would prove themselves wonders indeed. Scores were kept by a large number of the audience, and it was the opinion of a majority of them that ahe was justly entitled to the honors of theevemng, and ao the juiiges, Itov. W. H. Jordan of the Bioui Falla dietriot, Mrs, Williams of Watertown. and RtfV. J, T. tfadii^m, decided Pending the decision of the judges, Me*#*ra. 8U,u Hnd Palmer rendered a vocal duet, "Ij-ifoV Dream is O'er." The judges made their decision, Misa Mc Donald was ailed to the front of the stage and K«v Annie Shaw in a neat little speech presented to her tho trophy of tfcOOvening. Te Bu»rp Her Katwral Cioa.
