THE DAILY AllGUS JOHN W- POTTER. Tcksday, Jaaxaut 8. 1889. We bear little now of "Tippecanoe" and 'log cabin" verbiage since the elec tion. The simplicity of 1840 has already been relegated to the background and ar rangements are being speedily consum mated for one of the most elaborate balls ever witnessed in this country on the oc casion of Harrison's inauguration. The music alone is to cost about $3,500. It will be a great event for the millionaires and republican barons. A WK9TKRH KariRHS farmer claims to have produced during the last summer ibe best sugar cane raised in the state. Ii was grown in ninety days without a drop of rain upon it from the time it was planted until it was matured. lie regards this as the most profitable product of that part of the country . A Topeka paper says: "If these things are true and there can be no reason to doubt them perhaps the salvation of that much ma ligned and abused western Kansas is at hand. It is unreasonable to expect the dry and arid...

The process was discovered not much, if any. over a year ago, and is controlled by a company in Michigan which manufacturers the goods. Only recently has any of the clothing been seen here. The value of paper as a retainer of warmth has always been rec ognized by bunters, prospectors and oth er people who are given to "roughing it" On cold nights the people will cover themselves over with old newspapers, which they find a great protection against the cold. This is perhaps what suggested to some genius the idea of pa per clothing. The goods are of a very tough sort of paper, resembling buckskin in appearance. The garments are chiefly In the form of vests, designed to be worn between the underclothing and linen of gentlemen. Then there are corset covers for ladles. Bed clothing is also manu factured f...
