F? 4 w-'. CULTIVATION OF CORN. labor Saved Hnd Yield Enlarged by the System of Shallow Culture. The experiment stations have devel­ oped some points in regard to the culti­ vation of corn which it may be well to consider at this time. One of the most important points is brought out by the experiments in deep and shallow cul­ ture, or the use of the old large shovel plows in comparison with the spring tooth cultivators of comparatively recent introduction. Observations on the growth of corn roots have shown that under or­ dinary conditions the roots spread their feeders in the surface soil chiefly, and that a disturbance of these feeders weak­ ens the plant and results in a decreased yield of both corn and fodder. It was thus found at the Illinois station that about 70 per cent of the roots would be reached at the depth of four inches or less at a distance of six inches from the stalks. The theory formerly advanced that root pruning induces the plant to strike deeper into the ground ...

ZANESVOJJS, O., May 29.—The nom­ ination of General Asa S.

The Foraker men were able to concen­ trate on Bushnell and their opponents remained divided. .Governor Foraker, on his arrival at noon, made speeches Jja which he complimented all the gu­ bernatorial candidates, but he worked lor Bushnell, while Sherman, Foster JOSEPH BENSON FORAKER. and other leaders opposed the favorite.

CONDITION OF TRRDE, Trade Good, Labor Largely Employed and Crops Crow­ ing Finely. The past week lias been a quite satisfactory one to the IHINHIMSS men of Little Falls, und the amount of stiles have been laiiiy large In all lines. While the present condition is better than a year ago. there Is a well founded belief thnt times will continue to improve. The local in­ stitutions that employ labor are all running up to the limit, this being the first week that both snv mills have run full time night and day. This increase in employment for la­ borers will have its effect on trade, as more money than ever before will be paid out sttadilv for labor. The demand for farm products is good, and more shipments are being made to the city markets from Little Falls than usual. The rise in the price of wheat is the most notable event in trade this week, and though the price is the highest on the crop, the receipts were not heavy, and what slight in­ crease there was is thought ro be due as much t...

DEPOT LOCATION. General' Public Interest In the Proposed Re­ moval. The proposition of the Northern Pacific company to build a new passenger depot and locate it nearer the business center of the city is attracting considerable attention. The location of the depot will in a measure direct travel on the street leading to it. Broadway property owners are anxious that it should be on Broadway, and those owning property on First avenue 9011th are in favor of haviug it on that thoroughfare. The First ward in­ fluences are united, and they have three active and harmonious alder­ men to further their interests. It has been the policy foi some time to draw every public business building or business into the First ward, and the efforts in the past have been uniformly successful. For some reason or another the balance of the city has repeatedly placed in their power to exercise an unwarranted iufluenee in public affairs, and the result has been always the same. The desirs of the public do not ...

The democratic Direct­ ory must receive him in the name of the people but the act of hero-worship \vaa embarrassing. The people of Paris must have a spectacle and the Jacobin administration must glorify the hero of Italy.

The court of tho palace was splendid­ ly decorated and the elite gathered for the welcome. Tho occasion was not without its peril to Napoleon.

yrrd and depot. The Northern Pacific Consid­ ering Changes and Improv menu at Little Falls. The business of the Northern Pacific at this point has outgrown the facilities they have for handling It, and it has been determined to increase the trackage in the yards, and probably to construct a new depot. There is not room in the yards to conveniently store and handle the cars that are needed for use in the local business, and ad­ ditional trackage has become necessary. The depot is also entirely two snif 11, and is an old and uncom­ fortable building, being the sameone that was built nearly twenty years ago to accommodate the patronage of a village of a few hundred people. The company has appropriated about $12,000 to niakeimprovements at Little Falls, and there is need that the additional facilities be available soon. The company desires that some streets be vacated in order that the yards may be extend^! in length, and Supt. Law was in the city Mon­ day conferring with members of the...

u* Jp' it' ', IIP pi?- RefU|0 For tbe Bldb Let UB pause to drop a tear for the multimillionaires. In a recent symposium of veaewen to the question,'• Does wealth bring happi­ ness?" the consensus of opinion was in the negative, and some of the million­ aires presented a really doleful viev of riches, Andrew Carnegie says they can only tiring happiness in tho seme that they give greater opportunity for making others happy. This is quite a sensible way to view the matter, and it is a pity that our rich men lose this opportunity of using their wealth in the most ra­ tional and self satisfying way. Power that will enable a man to feed the hun­ gry and clothe the naked ought to make him happy indeed. JohnD. Rockefeller, the great Standard Oil magnate, who is worth a hundred millions or so, goes on to explain that the word wealth is a rel­ ative term and closes by affirming that it is more likely to bring unhappiness than happiness. George M. Pullman, the great sleeping car Croesus, is qu...

Sow the Shadow of General IJqaldation Veil Over the Doorstep «f National Proe perltr-lmtei That Amounted to Three Times the Cost of the Civil War. Various estimates have been made of the cost to the country of the Fifty-third congress and of the present free trade administration. It is diffioult to arrive at a trne estimate of the loss that the people have suffered through their folly in November, 1892. This period of our history has been conoisely described by Messrs. Clapp & Co., the New York bankers, in their weekly oiroolars. On Nov. 11, 1892, they said: "The recent election shows the people want to speculate." Four months later, on March 17,1898, shortly after the inauguration of Presi­ dent Cleveland, they said: "The shadow of general liquidation falls over the doorstep of national pros­ perity.
