This is not the safest season daring which rags may be imported from Egypt. Yet several vessels are now their way from Europe laden with rags purchfcfcfcd in Egypt making for Boston Mid New York and other Atlantic ports. The health authorities have been notified and these filthyftargoes will be watched accordingly. The old theory that labor is a commod ity to be bought and sold at the lotoest c*8h prices irrespective of the humani from which labor cannot be dissev ered, is beginning to bo discarded by political economists. Gen. Walker, late superintendent of the census, and other writers now take another and more hu mane view of the subject. It is demon strated that labor is possessed o...

I A. H. BEREMAN, Publiiher. WADENA, MINNESOTA The great Bhoe and leather failures of Boston and vicinity are attributed to our production. The manufacturers loaded themselves up so heavily with made-up stock that it was only a ques tion of time when the crash would come. France is contracting a new loan for $60,000,000. She owes nearly $5 000,000, 000, and it is becoming rather a serious question as to whether the amount has not become too large to be controlled. Her government expenditure, including that of the immense standing army and the payment of interest, reached last year the sum of about $1,000,000,000, or four times that of the United States. If there were no other cause of discon tent in France, this burden would be sufficient to cause disquietude. The mineral products of the United States are immense. According to the official report recently issued by Mr. Albert Williams, Jr., the chief of the division of mining statistics and Tech nology of the United States geological...

ftJNCTtJAIITT llie trouble began as soon as we were marrie4—nay, evon before. I had been engaged to Charley long enough to learn iiis .weaknesses pretty well, and as our Redding day approached I began to tremble. "Charley," I said as we parted the nigHt before, "don't be late to-morrow whatever you do." "Good heavens, Lelia! V^hat do you take me for?" said Char!ey. "If ever a man was ready for anything—" "Which you never were since I knew ypu," I said. "I believe you would /•iiianagp to be. late fop your own funeral." '."that would not depend quite so much upon my own: violition said Charley laughing. Make your mind easy, fjttle woman I shall be in time." I was by no means convinced'of it, but I could say no more. At first I had thought of being married in the English htyle, but I did not fancy the idea of waiting at the chancel rails for Charley. The only safe thing seemed to be to se cure him before we left the kouse. Two o'clock was the hour fixed for Hie (wedding, and as the tim...

mm "M M.. Si A. H. BEREMAN, Publisher. *$ht IfarmjCf. PITH OF_THE NEWS. WADENA, MINNESOTA. There was almost a panic last week in the New York stock market, but the trouble did not extend westward. An aneasv feeling .howexer, prevailed all over the country, owing to increased business failures, and especially to the failure of two or three national banks. Oscar Wilde, the apostle of aestheti cs ism is back again to New York. He corned to reap 'another harvest of glit tering American dollars. His return was by no means a triumphal affair, for scarcely a dozen knew it or cared about it. The news of his utter social collapse there had preceded him to New York, and the probability now is, that so far from being lionized, feted, petted and caressed, so strong is the force of exam ple in canons of taste, he will be left by people this side the Atlantic severe ly alone. The election of a senator for New Hampshire completes the roll of the senate for the next congress* There have been twenty...

l' & MART. From the Philadelphia Times Can I forget the happy night. In that December weather, When she and I, with footsteps light, Walked home from church together? My heart was rent 'twizt joy and fear And she was coy and ohary. For that which maidens love to hear Td whisper In her tiny ear, While walking home with Mary. A.h, that was in the long ago, But somehow it seems nearer, And those dear clays we used to know Seems always, somehow, dearer, When Mary lingers by my side, As coy and sweetly chary As when, in that December tide, 1 Wooed and Won my little bride, While walking home With Mary. God bless the, Mary, for the peaee That cometh with this seeming, And grant I ne'er shall know surcease From this delightfiil dreaming. For in mine age vou are to me, Though all the world may vary, The same sweet girl you used to be And to a land my faith can see, I'm walking home ith Mary. —Eugene Field. ZARA. BY CLAUDE!

1 |»:. V. .••-• -r I .. farmer. A. H. BERK MAN, Fablisher. WADENA, MINNESOTA The constitutional convention of Southern Dakota will be held at Sioux Falls on the 4th day of September. It is believed that the business will be trans acted in a few days. Minnesota, like Wisconsin and some of the other western states, does not in flict capital punishment for murder. In her penitentiary there are now 300 pris oners, and of these forty-five are murderers who are "doing" a life een fcence. If, generally represented by re cent foreign advices, the grain crops of England and France are short this year, those countries will need more of oltr American grain during the next twelve months than their necessities required •during thejsastjrearj^^^^ The English crop reports show that the harvest will again be inadequate to the demands of domestic consumption, and that the people must depend Very largely upon America for their food sup ply.

A large number «f letters from banks throughout the coon try are now being re ceived at the internal revenue bureau, in quiring why the money appropriated by congress for the redemption of cancelled stamps on bank.checks is not sent with the checK books which have been returned.. The commissioner replies that the immense amount of work ent»iled ontbe bureau by the plan devise! to cancel stamps and return checks has cau&ed some delay in making up accounts.
