mi 'i, If fit Little Falls Transciipi W. M. VULLEB, Publisher. UTTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA. The evangelists, Jones and Small, charged nothing and asked toothing tor their work in Chicago. What they received was a. free-will offering from individuals. The dairy interest is one of the larg­ est, financially, in more than a dozen States. In New York it is the leading industry. It is a benefit to the States in which it exists, supplying the place of other agricultural persuits when those have found a better field else­ where, enriching the soil, and making a fine market for hundreds of other products. Southern papers give much space to accounts of heavy investments by Northern men in the pine lands of Mississippi and Louisiana, which show that recent purchases amount to over 1,144,000 acres. The purchasers were noted lumbermen of Michigan, Wis­ consin and other States. It is predict­ ed that before many years Southern white pine and Cypress will supercede white pine and that the South here­ ...

.ftft 0"' BfeSWijj BY MUTUAL CONSENT. CHAPTER I. No One doubted that the Messingers were fortunate in possessing so charm­ ing a house as the Ness. It was built at the head of a narrow valley shut in by two hills, and beyond the sloping lawn stretched a wide expanse of sea. Mr. and Mrs. Messinger were simple unaffected people, devoted to their children and to Nancy,Mr. Messinger's young step-sister. They treated her with a kind of reverential tenderness, Chiefly due to the fact that she was en­ tirely dependent on them. And, in her turn, Nancy filled the place of a loving elder sister to the tribe of little ones, and of friend-in-chief to her gen­ tle sister-in-law. One sunny afternoon in early sum­ mer Mrs* Messinger sat at the open bay window of the drawing-room, reading. 8he was a placid lictle lady, seldom ruffled in mimt or temper, and her sweet face and soft blue eye3 were pleasant to contemplate. The door opened presently and Nancy came in rather slowly. Her expression was as...

W T* is y#1: 4XONK, Said a maid, my fortune telling, Long ago, in days of old— "N«ver heart will ache lor you, Never heart will break for you, Should grief strike your soul with anguish, Or you lie beneath the mould." Some one near me kissed me softly— "Heed it not, dear heart," she said "Fate or fortune, who can know it? Or the future who can show it? Mind you not the idle talking) Of a foolish gypsy maid.1' And I Haid, my soul unlearing, All my blessings unforgot— "It were well I gave no sorrow: From that thought my strength I borrow I can be content, my darling,. Other lives to darken not." But, ah me! the thought is dreary, Musing by myself to-night. "All alone!" the words keep measure Gone is all the old-time pleasure I ran see but sweet dead faces Upward turning to th flight. What the wonder! What the wonder That my soul is numb and cold? Never heart may ache for me, Never heart may break for me, Should grief strike my soul with anguish, Or I lie beneath the mould. Annie B. Be...

•Pr Little Falls Transcript. wmun, FIUUMT XJTTLB FALLS, UDnQBSOTA. The depressing effect of the lahor listurbances throughout the country is seen in the refusal of large manufac­ turers to take'extensive contracts un­ til the trouble is absolutely settled, As an instance it may be stated that a Delaware car company has refused contracts amounting to $385,000 luring the last six weeks. At the late election, in Rhode Island She Republican candidatefor governor polled 4,247 votes, the Democrat 9, 787 and the Prohibitionist 2,328, making a total of 26,362. This vote ioes not equal the vote of many of the counties in other States, and yet Rhode Island has two Senators and two representatives in Congress. Philadelphia's city hall is still unfin­ ished. Between eleven and twelve mill tons of dollars have been expended up­ on it since the laying of the corner stone in 1872. It is the largest building, fin­ ished or in course of completion, in the United States, and is estimated to cover 2,8...

Mr. m- •&$ s. Ik -.' .-- iUV1' jV An English Cinderella. There are more Cinderellas*nowa laya than the world imagines! The old story is enacted under different cir­ cumstances, with varying details, in many an English household. The daughters of the land may be fair, but there are too many of them, perhaps, for the anxious maneuvering mother to pilot among the shoals and quick­ sands of society. Now and then a younger one is kept out in the cold lor a little forbidden to cross the bor­ derland between the school-room and the drawing-room—not exactly forced to sit in ashes, but repressed, hidden away in the dim backgrounds r^here may be reason, plenty of worldly wis­ dom in this, and yet the girUwoman 48 apt to wax rebellious her sisters' triumphs fill her with envy. All sorts -of radiant visions of possible and im­ possible delights seem to beckon to her from that unknown world. Why must she, poor little Cinderella, waste her sweet bloom unseen and unheeded!

The Czar of Russia has determined to adopt means "for the immediate and permanent suppression o^ all forms of political agitation by young students." The committee of the Grant monu­ ment fund at New York, are convinced that no further progress can be made in the collection of money until a de­ cision shall be reached as to the char­ acter and cost of the memorial. They find that possible contributors are waiting to know, before giving money, exactly what is going to be done with it. The amount accumulated stands nearly stationary under $150,000, but they think it would increase rapid­ ly as soon as a certainity was reached. A bill has been introduced in Con­ gress which will, if adopted and sus­ tained by the courts, make the farm­ ers of the country exceedingly gleeful. It proposes to put the manufacture and sals of oleomargarine under about the same restr...
