Rainfall for the Week.
The past week has been cool, the tem
perature being below the normal on all
except the first two days of the week and
averaging between two and three de
grees below the normal. The daily max
imum temperatures have been generally
below 90 except on the first two days
when they exceeded 90 and in some
The rainfall has been light except in
the southeastern corner of the state
where two or three inches fell. More
than half an inch fell over a considerble
portion of the southeastern and north
western sections, while in the remainder
of the state the rainfall was generally
less than a quarter of an inch and in
some localities no measurable amount
The harvest of small grain has been
pushed and is now well advanced in most
portions of the state. Thrashing is be
ing commenced quite generally. Winter
wheat is yieldiug well but oats are a
light crop and the quality is poor being
very light weight. Hay is a good crop
and a large portion has been secured in
Corn has made good growth in most
portions of the state and continues in
very promising condition except in the
extreme western counties where the early
planted has been injured by drought and
rain is now urgently needed. While corn
has not suffered over the state generally
it would grow better in most portions
with more rain as the ground is getting
somewhat dry. In the region of heavy
rainfall the past week the corn is in re
markably promising condition.

G. A. LOVELAND,
BEGINNINGS OP ROMANOFFS.
Feter the Graat Tortured His Own
During the long civil wars in Russia
which followed the extinction of the
Rurik dynasty, the imperial title was
still claimed by upstart usurper czars,
says the Fortnightly Review. In 1863
a new dynasty was chosen to put an
end to the rule of pretenders. Michael
Romanoff, the son of Philaret, the met
ropolitan of Rostoff, was elected by a
kind of states-general convoked for the
purpose. There had been various can
didates, but a letter, said to be writ
ten by Philaret, having been placed be
fore the assembly, which was couched
in terms advocating constitutional gov
ernment, the son of that church digni
tary was elected. The latter said that
the assembly ought not to confer ir
responsible power upon the monarch
whom they would appoint, but that the
legislative power should be divided be
tween the czar, the house of Boyars and
the states-general. The oath imposnd
upon Michael Romanoff was, therefore,
to the effect that he should neither de
cree laws nor declare war nor conclude
treaties of pfice or alliance nor inflict
capital punishment or confiscation of
property upon any person except with
the assent of the Boyars and the parli
ament. Afterward this letter, when it
had served its purpose, was declared to
be a forgery. A few years later the
young czar ordered the charter of 1613
to be destroyed and to be replaced by
another in which it was laid cown that
Michael Romanoff was elected czar
"and autocrat" of all the Russias.
Gradually the convocation even of a
merely consultative assembly became
less and less frequent. Finally its
existence was altogether done away
with. After 1682 no convocation took
place any more except once under Cath
erine II., for a mere temporary object.
It is to these sporadic cases of states
general, if they may be called so, and to
a charter enshrouded in some historical
doubt that R issian liberals have in our
time now and then referred as to a pre
cedent. At least they did so in writ
ings published abroad, Russian censor
ship having forbidden the subject to be
touched upon at all. Peter I., Cather
ine I., Peter II., Anne, Elizabeth, Peter
III., Catherine II., Paul I., Alexander I.,
Nicholas I., Alexander II., Alexander
III., all ruled on the strict autocratic
principle which Nicholas II. is still bent
upon continring. Peter I., the Great,
enlarged upen it by extending the lia
bility to corporal punishment from the
nobility to the imperial family itself.
He had his own sister whipped. He put
his own son to the torture, who died
from it He, too, took a delight in
chopping oft the heads of a row of
political offenders while quaffing
brandy between each fatal stroke of
his reddened ax. It was sultanism with

stead of foot power is the real, origi

any one else would want with it is not
clear. Many of the inventions are,
however, of merit, and they relate to
details in the intricate portions of the

VISIONS WHICH WARNED.
Two Instances Where Dreams of Horses
and Fire Came True.
From the Trotter and Pacer: Dreams,
like girls, "are queer," and dreams
wherein horses figure largely take
rank among the queerest It is usual
to head this column with a little horse
talk a sort of bait to tempt the wary
horseman into the discussions of minor
subjects, and this time I shall give a
few dreams, not of "fair women," but
of horses, told one day between heats.
In the year eighteen ninety something
a gentleman entered a promising pacer
for a race to come off some time during
the last of the snow, and wrote to his
wife, who was visiting in a distant
town that his prospects for a race horse
were rosy. That night the lady, al
though not especially an admirer of
horses, dreamed that she was sitting in
the stand watching the finish of the
race wherein her husband's horse was
to take part. Replying to the letter, she
said that his horse would win the race
the last heat several lengths ahead of
a gray horse, the only other one she
saw in her dream, and that the judge
announced the time 2:20. The letter
caused a good deal of amusement in
the family during the months previous
to the race, and finally when the day
came five horses started, among them
being a dark gray. The dream came
true in every respect, the race being
won in three heats, and at the finish
the gray was the only one in it; the
rest just coming into the stretch; time,
2:20. The dream I can vouch for, as
I saw the letter weeks before the race
took place. Another gen:leman who
was sleeping at an inn bes.de the track
where his horses were sta'ded dreamed
that he saw the window of a stall con
taining a valuable young horse being
stealthily opened from the outside.
Then fire flashed and fell among the
straw, revealing the horses in a state of
terror, pawing and snorting loudly.
The dream was so vivid Uat he awoke
and fancied that he could in reality
hear the horse striking the walls of
his cell. He partially dressed and ran
out, and, not a moment too soon. Some
miscreant had thrown a cloth burning
and soaked with oil in through the
window. This had ignited the straw
and in a few seconds more the horse
must have perished, though fortunately
as it was he was but slightly injured.
THE PORCELAIN SKIN.
It Is Kept in Roseleaf Parity by en
cumber Cream. -
With many French and German
ladies the cucumber is a sovereign cos
metic. They buy cold cream, beat it
in a plate until soft, and drop in the
juice of a boiled cucumber. Milk is a
very valuable cosmetic, and may be
used freely to bathe the face in.
Lanoline cream, which is considered
excellent as an emollient for the skin,
may be made as follows: Obtain half
a pint of lanoline and half a pint of
pure oil of sweet almonds. Then, put
ting a tablespoonful on a china plate,
add an equal quantity of almond oil;
mix thoroughly and add from half a
teaspoonful to a teaspoonful of tincture
of benzoin, until the paste drips from
the knife a steel caseknife is best for
the mixing process in about the con
sistency of very thick cream. All three
of these ingredients are absolutely
harmless. It should be rubbed in at

Hunting the Wild Goat
The white goat, or Rocky Mountain
goat, as it is indiscriminately culled, is
a species of big game rarely hunted by
sportsmen. This is not so much because
of the difficulty of killing the animal, nor
because of its actual rarity. It is a si u
pid animal, easily shot when once found.
It is not, however, found in the unual
hunting grounds, as are bear, deer, elk,
etc. It is remote from the common lo
calities, but where found is in .goodly
numbers. It ranges very high up in the
mountains, above timber line usually,
among rocks and cliffs. This requires
grent labor to get at it, but once there,
the hunter will get his game nine times
out of ten.
If you care to read of a goat hunt
made in the Bitter Root range in Mon
tana, in the fall of lt95, send six ceuls
to Charles S. Fee, General passenger
agent, Northern Pacific railroad, St.
Paul, Minn., for Wonderland '96, which
recounts such a hunting expedition.
