It is to vour interest, and to the people's interest, that no professional politicians shall dominate that district. I will be glad to act with you if are fair to the people and I assume that you wish to be; but 1 will fight to the very last if you are not. If you will go with me to the district or send with me, when the session is closed, an honest reliable party, who has the necessary intelligence, I will show you evidence that will be conclusive that you have been grossly misinformed. You must remember that your are dealing with human nature, and that my aggressive stand for the people there has seriously interfered with the schemes of professional politicians, and they are now doing their utmost to discredit me. The people there do not know who your Secret Service men are. They do not want to be dominated by their reports without a hearing. They do not want their postmasters to be subject to charges of incompetency and sometimes dishonesty, and discharged without so much as having an opportunity to defend themselves, and often without knowing the reason. Your Secret Service men who usually visit there are in all probability fair, but some have been sent there from other places, for what reason I do not know, and have secured results that could not have been obtained thru honest, fair inspection. If you will go on the ground with me, or send the proper party with me, I will show you proof of things that have happened that will make you think seriously of practices that happen thru your system. I believe in Civil Service properly administered, but when it is not so administered it is abhorrent. If you do not appoint the men I recomend, when new postmasters are to be appointed, it will not injure me half as much as it will the reputation of your Department and some of the professional politicians; for the people in that district know that all sorts of inducements have been made to me to make me favorable to, or that I, at least, let alone the leaders of the House, I am not here to represent specifically the good postmasters of the district, I say good for most of them ate, and the people there esteem most of them, but they love their families and their neighbors, and there are hundreds of them t-0 every postmaster; lam here to represent the best interests of all, and I will do that to the best of my ability, patronage or no patronage. When there are vacancies in any of the offices in my district, I am willing and glad to assist you to obtain good, reliable and honest men to fill the places: but I must be treated fairly. You cannot request of me to Proprietress I name a man for one place, and refuse me under like circumstances to name the proper man in other places. If you do 1 shall refuse to act in any case; but nevertheless, on other questions consistant with my duties, I will give you all the assistance that I can. At any time you wish to go over matters of interest to the people in the district that will help you in your work, I will give you all the information I have. Of course, I am ready to act now in the three cases which are before you, it you will act upon all. Then I shall not object to act in the Wadena case. Respectfully, C A. Lindbergh. The Wadena matter was then controlled by Mr, Buckman and the Senators. The sympathy at Wadena was with Mr. Eastman who, with other citizens there, sent Mr. Wood to Washington and he in good faith made the arrangements referred to. As a matter of expediency I made no objection, for if I had, Mr. Dower would have been appointed then and would be holding the office. I,'of course, reserved the right, as always, to have the people control if they so demand. If the case had been my own I should have selected from among my supporters a competent man suitable to the people for there are many such, but it was not my case. As things now are machine politics have blacklisted me. The few cases I have referred to in the above letter show, a part of the methods that I am fighting against. I shall again go to the people with their fight for justice but it will be a different contest than the first one for I have been collecting facts for three years and I shall have these in shape for making what I hope to be one of the most interesting and instructive campaigns that has ever been conducted in the state. I shall be prepared on my return, to inform the people thru a series of speeches of what I have learned. I trust the friends of government by and for the people will be patient in awaiting that information till Congress adjourns. The End.

They will offer quite large sums of money; for instance, $150.00 will be offered for the best ten ears; probably $50.00 for the best single ear, and other premiums accordingly. Of course this will be confined to the CROP GROWN IN MINNESOTA ONLY. It will also no doubt be divided into north and south sections. These matters are not yet fully worked out but will be at the tirst meeting of the Board in March. We will be pleased however to have you make note of it in your paper in order that your readers may NOW select exhibit ears from the 1909 crop.

LACK OF WATER IN ALASKA Contrary to popular ideas, the chief obstacle in the way of a large and increasing gold output from Alaska is the lack of water. Over the whole of Se ward Peninsula, which produces one-fourlh of the gold* of Alaska, and in most of the interior as well, the climate is comparatively arid, exct-pt in small mountain areas.

Queer Whistling Language of the Canary Island Natives. In Gomera, one of tbe smallest of the Canary Islands, the silvando, or whistling language, survives. A correspondent writes: "A traveler must laud at the little port of San Sebastian and there find a muleteer from the Interior. With him he must ride up the stee;> bridle paths that wind through the mountains. When no longer any living thing ls within sight and the wilderness ls only broken by the crimson flower of the cactus growing ln the clefts of the rock, tho muleteer dismounts, sets his forefingers together at a right angle aud places them ln his mouth. An arrow of piercing sounds shoots across the ravines and up the stony terraces into the fastnesses of the mountains. A moment's pause and tliere comes a thin, .almost uncanny, answering whistle from far away. Conversation begins and, tithe sounds rise and fall, are stacca- toed or drawn out, so they are faithfully echoed and transmitted by the hills. "Then comes the ghostly reply, and then question and answer follow without hesitation or misunderstanding. Perhaps the stranger will ask, "What are you doing there?' Answer: 'There is a traveler with me. One of our mules is lame. Can you bring us a fresh one?' 'Yes, I can. Do you want anything else?' 'You nxght bring some milk along if you have any,' and so on. That the conversation is correctly interpreted is presently confirmed by the arrival of the mule and the milk, and the distance that separated the parties to the dialogue turns out to be about three miles. "Long notes and short notes, rising and falling tones, go to make this marvelous means of communication. No re?ord Is to be found of Its origin or history, and it will be a thousand pities if scientific investigation is not made before the silvando is added to the list of dead languages, as assuredly it will be within tbe next two or three generations."—Chicago News. years ago and has many friends and relatives here.
