It has been observed that of all do mestic animals, the horse is the most afflicted with diseases of the eye. Some of these ailments are hereditary and from unknown causes, others— and these are of painful frequency— are not inherited, and their origin may be readily traced. Of this latter class of causes may be mentioned: Insufficient or bad arrangement of light in stablps blinkers high racks for feeding ammonia fumes in stalls and the whip! Although the eye of the horse is well adapted to seeing at night, yet he is not a noctornal .ani mal, therefore the stable should have daylight freely admitted to it. A dimly-lighted stable impossed on the horse sudden changing from twilight to broad sun...

JOHN KELLY has vacated the controller's office of New York city, and threatens ven geance on the anti-Tammaay democrats who were instrumental in his overthrow. THE ways and means committee of the House unanimously voted that the new re funding bill shall provide for three percent, bonds, instead of three and a half. The action of the committee is regarded as set ting the rate. From the fact that the four per cents are selling at $1.11, it is be lieved the threes will be readily taken. THE importance of New York as a busi ness centre can be appreciated from the fact that the receipts at the custom house in 1880 were $131,000,000 while the total of the whole country was $186,000,000.

CONGRESSIONAL SUMMARY. TUESDAY, DECEMBEB 7. SENATE.—Bills and resolutions were intro duced to authorize the local taxation of legal tender treasury notes to amend the Ute bill. Senator Ingalls introduced a bill providing for the issue of not over $10,000,000 fractional currency, of the denominations of ten, twenty five and fifty cento. There is a very general impression among congressmen that the people would like a little of this kind of currency for use in the mails. HOUSE.—A resolution was adopted directing the secretary of the interior to inform the house under what authority Douglas, the Ute chief, and companions were confined in a mil itary prison, and what steps, if any, have been taken to bring them to trial for killing Indian Agent Meeker. After along debate, the speaker decided that a joint resolution presented a ques tion of privelego. Mr. Bicknell called for the previous question on the electoral count resolu tion, when the republicans filibustered, wishing for an extend...

NORTHERN PACIFIC FARMER WHITNEY & WHIPPLE, Publisher* WADENA, WADENA, CO., MINNESOTA. CURRENT TOPICS. A CHICAGO paper published last week -what purported to be an interview with ex Gov. C. C. Washburn, in which that gentle man was made to say many startling things abont flouring business and railroads to one Melville London, who writes over the norn do plume of "Eli Perkins." Gov. Wash bum felt compelled to publish a card, say ing that no such interview took place with him anywhere, with any one—which is ex plicit enough, even if other evidence was wanting, which is not the fact—to satisfy anybody that "Eli Perkins" is a shameless liar and a disgrace to journalism. His men dacity far exceeds the capacity of some of the Washington correspondents—and that is saying a good deal. AMERICAN credit abroad never stood higer than at present. The London Times says that "the finances of the United States may excite the envy, not only of England, but of Europe, and the fidelity of the na ti...

A PAIR OF SLIPPERS. From Harper's Bazaar. A tall young man ran hastily down the steps of a handsome house in thirty-seventh St., and went quickly toward Broadway. The sun was shining upon a diamond net work which glittered upon every branch and with ered vine, and was reflected from the daz zling pavement, covcred with a thin glazing of ice. There was a vexed, painedlook up on his handsome face, and his steps were reckless, because his heart was impatient and sore. "Beautiful as ever," he muttered to him self, "and colder than ever. There she sat with her friends, exquisitely dressed, quiet, and as unmoved by my presence as if I had not been away for five days, writing to her by every mail, hungering for a sight of her. I used to think this calmness was the perfection of high breeding now I know it for the sign of a cold heart and absent mind. Not even to come for a moment into the li brary when I gave her such a pretext! There I stood like a fool for a quarter of an hour, turning o...

GERALDINE'S CHOICE. Geraldine Spencer was the only daugh ter of the well known Col. Hubert Spencer, one of the wealthiest planters of Mississippi. The Colonel was a fiery blooded gentle man of the old school in those days, "before the war," of which we are speaking. His grandfather was an intimate and trusted friend of Washington. His father was a Brigadier General in the last war with Great Britain, and the Colonel himself was a grad uate of West Point, and one of the most dashing and daring officers under old "Bough and Ready," in the pic-nic of a war which we had with Mexico a generation ag°. Col. Spencer was the leader in some of tj -e most daring exploits south of the Bio Grande. He was complimented more than, once in the official dispatches, and a bril liant military career—that is, as the state of the country permitted, was before him, had he chosen to adopt the military* profession but through the Colonel, would have pre ferred fighting to eating, he resigned his commission ...

NORTHERN PACIFIC FARMER WHITNEY & WHIPPLE, Publishers. WADENA, WADENA, CO., MINNESOTA. CURRENT TOPICS. THE Minnesota legislature will convene at St. Paul on Tuesday, January 4. CONGRESS will not reassemble until the 5th day of January, and from that time un til the 4th of March there will he lively times in Washington. JOHN KETJXJY, the famous Tammany boss, is being deserted by his friends, who now look upon him as the prime cause of the defeat of the party in New York. A SINGULAR report comes from Washing ton, that the social influence of the army neutralizes all attempts to reduce expenses and inaugurate reforms, and that this influ ence controls about twelve votes in the senate alone. GEORGIA railroads have charged passen gers five cents per mile, and of course are uly outraged by a peremptory order of the railroad commissioners—who are clothed with ample power—to reduce the rates to three cents per mile.
