\k ii Is 1% I! %^J0?M1 E IN T5J1IKEY. There was In Turkey, years ago, A fearful drought as all must know. The Turks to Allah prayed for rain, On hands and knees, but all in vain. Of weather-prophet* quite a score Were strangled—still it wouldn't pour. At last the Turks met in despair, When one arose—the wisest there, And said: We nee more help, we do Let's start the Jews a-prajing, too! No sooner said than done. That day Each Jew was ordered out to pray. But, like the Turks, Iney prayed in vain— The sun grew hotter, and the ground Was burned lor miles and miles around. The thirsty Turks, despairing mow, Assembled as they had before. If thisfceepson," tho wise man said, In my opinion, we'll be dead. But there's another card to play: Make all tho dogs of Christians pray." At once each Christian was at work A-praylng, guarded by a Turk, Who ou the Prophet's beard had sworn To kill each dog of them by morn Unle=s it rained. So all that night Tho Christians prayed with main and might. Th...

Wirttocgtau ^toaiut, %»JOO a Year, $1.00 for Six Months. THURSDAY MA 12, 1881. THE ANN UAL STA TEMENT. The Journal intended to set down on the Financial Statement and referred to it last week as "a kind of a contin ued story." It "spoke by inspiration" and for once was right. The story is to be continued under the supervision of Auditor Mills for a terra of years.— The atory is original, a new departure from the usual methods of making such statements, giving the people of the different towns and districts a chance to test the correctness of county ac counts and of their own at the same time by comparing them with each oth er. The story is interesting to tax pay ers of this county and, at their request, will be continued. RAILROADS POINTING THIS WAY. An agent of the Burlington, Cedar Bapids and Northern railroad, says the Beacon, has been at Spirit Lake and stirred up the people to take an interest in securing the road through Dickinson county.

OOSSTP FOB THE LIDOS. I'm haunted by a pair of eyes, Softly bright, of wondrons size With pen or book Do what I will, With steady look. They haunt me ttilL It IIHIII ao strange that those two eyes— Of ev'rything beneath the skies Should fill my heart With Joy's quick glow, Then make me start With pain and woe. Ah me, those eyes! I dread their gaze They All my soul with such amaze, To know they see What I would hide, And pity me. But do not chide. They do not chide, those dear, dear eyes They do not seem to feel surprise, But softer glow On me the while, As they, too, know Love's own sweet wile. In dreams they come, beyond my will. And steep my soul in wond'rous thrill. I can not tell How it can be, This magic spell That's ovsr me. Nor how those eyes, e'en when sway, Can melt in mine their sof t'ning ray. Thev have no right To haunt me so, Both day and night Where'er they go. I would I could forget those eyes. That gleam like lights in Paradise. With pen or book, Do what I will, With...

The fight over the nomination of Robertson for the position of Collector of the port of New York has resulted in the resignation of Senators Conkling and Piatt, the two New York Senators. This is supposed to be a coup d'etat of some kind, and it is thought that the two Senators will be promptly returned by the legislature which is still in ses sion. This introduction of a Japanese meth od into this country looks amusing to some and ominous to others. Messrs. Conkling and Piatt feel aggrieved at the president, and they proceed at once to disembowel their political bowels in Japanese fashion. This whole matter can be told in a nut-shell. It is Grantism revived. Robertson WJIS the first of the New York delegation to break and make Grant's nomination impossible and Garfield's possible. Garfield nominates Robertson to reward him. Conkling opposes it to punish him. The...

Dr. Wedge was a supporter of Ward in the last campaign and an opponent of Bunnell. Gen. Edgerton, who was ap pointed U. S. Senator, in spite of the opposition of the Dunnell clement, was also a supporter of Ward, and his ap pointment was gratifying to the clean, independent and anti-machine element of the Republican party. A this rate the independents in this district will begin to be treated with some respect by the slaves of the machine,and papers, like the ADVANCE, which dared to take an independent position against machine politics and political Bossism will not be so freely denounced as "lunatic," "sore-head," etc. A WORD TO THE INDEPENDENTS.

THE imports of foreign paper stock into the United States during the year 1880 were 313,714,260 lbs., against 152,021,723 lbs. in 1879, and 112,193,737 lbs. in 1878. But the surplus stock of foreign countries was so largely drawn upon last year that prices abroad have held up more (irmly than would other wise have been the case.

We copied last week an item from the Chicago News stating that the Duke of Sutherland had purchased 60,000 acres •f land in Nobles and Rock counties.— We stated, in connection with the item, that it was probable at least that the lands had been contracted. This rumored purchase has been de nied by parties who claim to know. But the Sioux City Journal of Thurs day last says: The duke had but a few minutes to spare for the reporter. He acknowledg ed that he had purchased some 60,000 acres of land near the line of the Paul road, but had but an indistinct idea as to price—something less than a pound per acre he thought—and had on ly a vague conception of where the land is situated.
