A, tl in. ittie^aUs IraHSfrijrt Wr-M. FULLER, Paublisber. LITTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA. 1 ra Hon. Emory A. Storrs,one of the first lawyers of Chicago, finds serious fault with the pletiro-pneumoma bill, now be­ fore Congress, and says it will fail to pass because "it is not proper, or right, «r reasonable, or just to place the enor­ mous cattle interests of this country under the absolute control of a few horse dealers, veterinary politicians, and givo them power to prevent the shipment of cattle to market every time a cow sneezes." This is apparently just about the size of it, not only here but in foreign countries where such enact­ ments have been attempted. The most successful journals of the country are newspapers—in fact as well an in name. The old style papers, full and redundant in opinions and chary of facts, have ceased to be profitable. Some of theq} are yet in existence, but the income therefrom is small, and in some oases, below expenses, which have to be ekbd out by the boun...

I sHtissrsrxAXt, BSAirenr. •'fever the Spring returns with skies serene, And balmy breath of infant buda and flowers I Even the hills renew their primal green, Anil melodies that gladdened earth's first hours Are heard again in many a hazel screen. Warm hearts turn cold, quick pulses cease to beat, And love grows languid in the laps© of time But beauty still tempts youth's pursuing feoi Bright eyes are endless thomea for passioned rhyrao, And lovers' TOWS will be forever sweet. Great sonls have died for tmth and left their fame To be tho watchword of another age But Tirtue, justice, courage, t.nd high aim Deneend through time, a common heritage, And heroes lire to-day in all bat name. Years was and wane, tho good and true remain How sweet love is my own heart telleth me.

The faces eo near to gather were a striking contrast, for, while Nita Danvers was dark, with a brilliant coloring, her friend Beth was very fair. To look at Beth ofte would immediate­ ly imagine a home shut away from the distractions of the world of fashion, and hour spent in doing deeds of charity, But it would be a mistake, for al­ though no more charitable heart evdr occupied a maiden's breast, Beth had left a homo of luxury and elegance to visit her favorite school friend, and, though by no means a frivolous, shal­ low girl, was one of society's brightest ornaments, winning, by her charm and intelligence, the palm from her more showy, vivacious sisters. Upon the open page before them was pictured a man's handsome face, with features regular and denoting high character. Beth exclaimed in pleasant admira­ tion: "So that is Mr. Heith, your brother Robert's friend What a splen­ did f...

iittk Itansflwjrt W. M. PULLER, Puubliaher. LITTLE FALLS, MINNESOTA. Relative to the importance attached to the present cessation of tho foreign demand for American exports, Jay Gould says: "It is, in my opinion, only a question of a short time when we mil have very little wheat to export. Corn, however, is our great staple, and we have practically a monopoly. What the old world does not want in oae shape can give them in the shape of pork beef." Massach usetts has passed a law, that the school committee of every city and town shall purchase at the expense of such city or town text books and other school supplies used in the public schools, and text books and supplies shall be loaned to the pupils of the pub­ lic schools free of charge, subject to such rules and regulations as to care and custody as the school committee may prescribe. Similar law3 have been proposed in various states but Massachusetts, it is believed is the first to try the experiment under legislative sanction. Bar...

BY WIDOW. Jones advised menot to marry her— ao said she was too young and pretty. Farnum advised me to be an old bach­ elor—told me a man past forty •simply made a fool of himself by matrimony. Tewksbery, a man who is notorious for never minding his own business, told me she had a love affair with Har­ ry Birmingham bofore he wcut South. Allen shook Ills head, and said Clara Myers might be very pretty, but hq liked somebody maturer and settled. (N, B. He married his housekeeper the next week, and she is mature enough for Methusaleh himself.) Everybody thought I was trying a dangerous experiment but I didn't pre­ tend to suit everylody, so I simply suited myself. I went quietly to church with Clara Myers, and married her one glori­ ous January morning when the old St. aid's was fringed '.vita glittering icicle:*, and the brisk wind was freighted with the particles of flying snow, like a bat tallion ol diamonds on a double quick.
