By H late Farmers' convention in our city was

Y \l& Johnson , Supt. Department of Agricul-
l I J ture , and Asst. Secretary W. H. Dearing
H \ si of the Commission were in attendance at
H I VI the convention , and advanced good rea-
H i fi sons why such action should be taken
H \ by the convention. These gentlemen
H Vfl stated that free transportation will be
M JK- " " " * provided for all exhibits save live stock ,
H Pf and that free space would be given for
H JjEj the exhibits in the proper buildings.
UT f ! rhls idea of KrouP'niJ exlnlits although
Kd ki cacn counly could retain its identity by
B # 91 labels attached to the several articles ,
B ku recommends itself to all as being in the
H % gg interest of economy of money and of
H vj' space as well. Hence , we say , the wisH -
H hfl dom of the adoption of the following
Vj resolution by the convention :
Hf jj "Resolved , Tliat the counties of Fur-

The Tribune submits that this plan
will make the expense light upon the

Antaltruria Heard From.
Dear Mr. Reporter : When jou
wrote from among us , giving your im
pressions in free and unstinted language ,
I looked at ourselves as others might see
us , and resolved to go to other places
and learn wherein we differed. During
vacation I made my way to Cultura , and
that I might have the best opportunity
to see people , their manners and cus
toms , I put aside my school-teacher dig
nity and became a " hired girl. " There
I observed and thought , and while I was
musing the fire burned , and I said , I will
take my pen and tell Mr. Reporter what
I have learned.
Upon assuming duties in one of the
most prominent families , I found them
astir , making preparations to entertain
a famous writer and traveler. The young
ladies were looking up the names of new
books and their authors , skimming thro'
"Now , my dears , " said Madam , "you
know it is only necessary to have one or
two prepared conversations to gain the
reputation of being literary. You would
better commit to memory a few lines of
'A New Rendering of The Rubaiyat of
Kayyam , ' and read that chapter of 'Quo
Vadis , ' which is given in the Book Re
view and be sure to look over Brown
But , Oh ! Mr. Reporter ! when I found
that you were the renowned traveler
and writer for whom all this preparation
was made , I could hardly believe it. I
thought , "Upon what meat doth this
our Caesar feed that he is grown so
great ? " And at the banquet , when you
related with gusto anecdotes about your
sojourn in Antaltruria , you little thought
that capped and aproned waiting-maid
was that same " charming daughter " of
your Antaltrurian hostess. But , amid
the jests and laughter , I seemed to hear
little Charley's shrill , childish treble
"Say , Mister ! Can you flop flies with
your ears ? " which so convulsed me , I
fled from the room to hide where I might
give vent to my enjoj'ment of the occa
sion. Here my mistress found me aud
summarily discharged "a girl who could
be guilty of such unseemly conduct. "
Well , I was satisfied with Cultura and
on my way home stopped in Utopia.
Here I posed as a tourist looking at the
place , and found occasion to become ac
quainted and visit in the homes of dif
ferent persons. Happy Utopia ! Every
wouiau thought her husband's wife was
the most capable housekeeper , best busi
ness manager , aud most thorough-going
woman in the country. Her children
were the smartest , most intelligent far
and away beyond her neighbors. The
husband was generally more or less of a
nonentity ; but his was honor enough
simply to be Mrs. So-and-Such's hus
band. Their reading matter was local
publications , of high literary merit , be
ing carried on solely by home talent.
Measuring themselves by themselves ,
and having no other standard , the writ
ers all scored high , themselves being the
scorers ; consequently they are delight
fully comfortable in their self-admiration
and self complacency. What others call
egotism and inordinate self-conceit , their
dictionaries define as unconsciousness
of self , and child-like candor. Their
conversation is about self and children
occasional ' about husband and ro
mance and reality are as far apart as
usual in such cases.
And , Mr. Reporter , where is the differ
ence , please , between us. poor Antaltru-
rians and the rest of the world ? What
you call "sciolists" among us I should
name "shamming smatterers , " as I saw
it among Culturians. With us " deceit"
" tact " with them. Ours is " gossip"
theirs "candid speaking. "
And now , sir , my conclusion is : That
human nature is much the same whether
gilded , as in Cultura , self-glazed as in
Utopia , or in the raw , crude state repre

The Wesleyans Are Coming.
Saturday evening , February 26th , has

states , and have been enthusiastically
received everywhere. You will miss a
treat if you do not hear them. Reserved

tomorrow morning , at 35c. General ad
mission , 25c.
The Clarinda ( Iowa ) Herald says :
" They pose as a college quartet , yet in
their first and last numbers Vandewa-
ter's ' Sunset' and Dudley Buck's ' Good
Night , ' they showed that they could
handle classical songs as well as any
quartet on the road. Their program was
a taste of genuine jolly college life , and
the audience was so appreciative that
the boys were compelled to respond teas
as many as five or six encores at a time. "
