WARREN SHEAF. A. DEWEY, Publisher. WAKKEN, MINNESOTA. CURRENT TOPICS. HE manufacture of beet sugar at Frank lin, Massachusetts, which has been exten sively advertised, has proved a bad failure, and farmers have suffered heavy losses. The cost of manufacturing was five times as much as expected. The company deter mined to lease the mills for a term of years, upon the payment of interest upon all the indebtedness, together with taxes and in surance, so as to determine once for all whether the manufacture of beet sugar could be financially successful. SECEETAEY EVABTS says that he has spent $20,000 a year more than his salary for the last four years, and it is known that ex-secretary Fish did the same. That comes of "setting up" the wine for the represen tatives of the effete monarchies of the old world. President Hayes gave them tea and coffee, (good enough for anybody,) and saved $100,000 in four years. It is gravely suspected that Mr. Blaine will follow the example of his illustriou...

WARREN SHEAR A. DEWEY, Publisher. WABBEN, MINNESOTA. THE communists of America and the few nihilists residing here, are shouting with joy over the assassination of the Emperor of all the Bussias, but they affect to believe that the nihilists did not do the bloody busi ness, but that it was the result of a con spiracy of his own household. JAY GOULD has taken stock in a com pany to barge wheat from St. Louis to New Orleans, and believes that by barge trans portation there will be a very important saving in transportation to Liverpool, and that St. Louis will sometime become not only the grain mart of the Mississippi Val ey but a rival of Baltimore and New York.

WARJtEN SHEAF. A. DEWEY, Publisher. WABBEN, MINNESOTA. NEWS SUMMARY. RAILROADS. The New York Central has determined to build two additional tracks between Buffalo and Rochester, making six tracks in all. Parties who profess to know say there is more in the rumored consolidation of the Chi cago & Northwestern, and Chicago, Milwaukee & St Paul companies than has come to the sur face. Bates are reduced on grain, provisions and live hogs, five cents, commencing on April 1, thus making rates on grain thirty cents and on provisions and live hogs thirty-five cents. These rates remain in force during the summer months. Mr C. C. Smith of La Crosse, has taken the contract for building an additional ten miles of the north Wisconsin railroad, making thirty miles in all. This leaves but ten miles yet in tervening between the end of the present con tract and the lake.

Facts and Fancies. The only objection the average man ha to the coming of spring is that with comes house-cleaning. The governors of New York and Pennsyl vania each receive $10,000 per annum, the governor of Louisiana $8,000, and the oth ers from $6,000 to $1,000. A great many men in the former states would rather be gov ernor than be right. The importance of these two items as branches of the lumber trade is not gen erally understood. We have the United States about 80,000 miles of railway. Each mile requires the use of about 3,000 ties so that the enoimous number of 240.000,000 ties are in constant use. One tenth of this number or 24,000,000 are annually jnsu med the United states for repairs alone, aside from those necessary to the construc tion of new lines. The amount of railway construction for the present year, which will aggregate 7,000 miles, with the annual imn.ber of ties required for repairs, will give a consumption in the United States for 1881 of the vast total of 45,0...
