growth in national bank notes in five years has Increased their amount trom 216000000 to 478000 000 based on government bonds or about 50000000 per annum It is calculated that the gold stock of the country increases annually in about the proportion that population increases During the last fiscal year the basis money of the nation was increased by the addition of 23000000 in gold certificates It is urged that as the bank note circulation increases faster than the growth of the money of redemption the process tends toward inflation It adds to the burden of money which the gold reserve must maintain at parityNo remedy for this situation Is In eight and It is stated that it may be that an unhappy financial depression will be needed to call the attention of the whole country to the necessity for caution in loading up trade with too great an issue of bank notes At present there is no limitation on the or ganization of national banks except that they cannot go beyond the bonded

Capable of Lifting Biggest StationaryDocks The huge storm waves of the Atlantic in midwinter seem to roll onward in a resistless torrent of destruction to all in their pathway But this year they are beating against an indomitable structure for the United States Government is shipping to its faroff naval station at Cavite something that floats but is yet not a war vessel a fortress or a merchant ship Capable- of use in either peace or war it is a very necessary adjunct to Uncle Sams Navy This structure which has been breasting the waves of the Atlantic is the gigantic new floating dry dock Dewey but recently built by the SparrowsPointWhile there are numerous dry docks In the far East which are available for peacethehis fighting ships were he to get into an embroglio with any foreign power This fact determined the Navy Depart ment to build a great dry dock which could be towed from one port to an other or used in the open seas The recent success attained by the Govern ment floating dry dock at New Orleans Induced the naval officials to decide that this new factor in shiprepair should not be stationary but rather one of the floating variety In order that it might be capable of docking the largest battle ships not only of the present day but of such possible ex pansion as the future might bring forth the Government specifications required that the Dewey should be able to dock a 16000 ton ship in four hours from the time the warrior en tered the trough to the moment the keel was out of water The Largest in the World Such specifications meant that upon completion of the Dewey the Govern ment would possess the largest floating dry dock in the world The contractors wentfurther than the Government specifications and gave the new dock a capacity of 20000 tons The question might be asked what sort of monster is this which floats and yet can bodily lift the huge fighting terrors of the sea It is nothing more than a large steel floating box with a bottom and two long sides but with the top and ends missing the bottom resting upon great square tanks 18 feet deep With an opening of certain valves enough water is rush into sink the great trough untilI the floor Is sufficiently below water level for the largest warship to enter between the two protruding sides After the vessel Is within the enclosure the water is pumped out of the tanks and the great trough rises until the floor is well above the wash of the sea Any surplus water remaining on the floor of the tank drains off and the ship on becoming dry may be painted cleaned or repaired The giant leviathan of war is hahdled as though It were al toy The Dewey has a total length of about 500 feet and a height of 64 feet from the bottom yet in order to dock a vessel demanding a depth of 30 feet in the trough the bottom of the tank sinks to a depth of 63 feet Floating by itself it draws but 63 feet of United States Government was very strict in all requirements of Its contract with the constructing com pany and insisted that the dock should be carefully tested before being ac spring the battleship Iowa was = m locked In the Dewer and within aa hour and a half from the time that she was in position her keel was out of the water In tfc same month the United States battleship Colorado with a displacement of nearly 2000 tons Will Baffle the Toredo One of the most essential needs for a dry dock in the Philippine Islands is caused by the accumulation of a great amount of marine growth upon the hulls of all vessels spending any length of time In tropical waters Naturally a steel dry dock In such a locality would also become befouled by barns cles toredes eta and ftisat this point that a most peculiar feature of the Dewey is hrouerht to light for in addition to being able to lift the bear xz ii lest battleships of the Navy it can lift itself as well In other words it raises its own bottom out of the water while floating only upon its great hol low side box and the bottom in turn lifts up the side box to a sufficient height to permit of its being scraped cleaned and copper painted Notwithstanding the apparently intricate problems confronted in the construction of such a huge engine the Navy Department had a still greater problem to solve when it considered methods of sending the Dewey to the Philippine Islands The great size of the machine meant that it could make but slow progress through the water experienceacross the uncertain Atlantic How ever the inducement of extra good salaries enabled the officials to obtain a crew of experienced men to handle the dock The hollow sides of the enormous engine provide abundant living quarters for the crew of thirty and are as good as the best quarters on any man of war There is on board a com plete distilling apparatus for making fresh water and the ration allowances are double those received by the men of the United States Navy Since the dock has left the United States it has been in almost continuous communica tion with the shore by means of the wireless telegraphy apparatus on board as well as on the three naval vessels towing it It is supposed by the Government officials that it will take nearly four months for the structure to make the trip to the Philippines Games for the Mariners The great floor of the Dewey is of sufficient size to allow of a regulation game of base balL a fact which probably will be taken advantage of when the warmer climates are reached Should the little fleet meet with a hurricane such as might usually be encoun tered on the Atlantic in winter the towing steams could throw off the tow lines and the Dewey could be filled with sufficient water to sink to a depth which would assure its safety until after the storm had passed away while the towing boats could find safe refuge within the dock The route taken by the fleet is as follows After passing out of Chesapeake Bay it takes a course due eastward across the Atlantic to the Madeira Islands from whence it enters the Mediterranena through the Straits of Gibraltar until the Suez Canal is reached The traversing of the Suez Canal was another problem which faced the officials of the Navy Department but after making careful meas urements it was found that the dock would easily pass through the Canal The fee that the United States Government is called upon to pay for the use of the Canal for this purpose is 30000 After passing through the Suez Canal the squadron of three towing boats and the dock will sail through the Red Sea between Arabia and Africa and thence on to the Indian Ocean Singapore will probably be a stopping place for the expedition and after going through the straits of Malacca it will pass up the China Sea and thence to the Cavite naval station reaching there just about In time for the Easter holidays Other Dry Docks The United States has a couple of other floating dry docks one at Algiers La but recently completed and another at Pensacola Fla formerly stationed at Havana Before the float Ing dry dock was considered a success the stationary dry dock was the only kind available This was completed upon shore generally of concrete and granite with sloping sides and a concave trough for the hulls of vessels to fit Into The Navy has sixteen of these four being situated at Brooklyn three at Norfolk two each at Philadel phia and Mare Island California and IBATTLESHIP IOWA IN NEW DOCK DEWEY twohours one each at Portsmouth N LCharleston S C and Puget Sound Washington The nearest rival to the Ueweyfamong the floating dry docks of the world is that at Bermuda While it is 45 feet longer than the Dewey its lifting capacity is but 16500 tons which is 3500 tons less than the American structure In Austria there iealsoa floating dry dock of 15000 capacity and one in Germany capable of lifting a burden of 11000 tons e A Peculiarity of Siberia In parts of Siberia corpses thaf have lain buried for 150 years have been exhumed and found in a

install ments from the settlers The apportionment of the fund by Secretary Hitchcock has been practi cally completed and the plans matured for expending the entire fund on cer tain definite projects in the West which practically brings to an end fur ther surveys and examinations and permits the concentration of effort of the Reclamation Service on the build ing of a few important projects irrigation and Rivers and Harbors There are many people who do not entirely understand the difference between the appropriations made for the reclaiming of arid lands and those for the improvement of rivers and har bors There is a disposition to criticize Congress for permitting the expenditure of millions in making habitable and productive large areas of the public domain now worthless and at the same time cutting down the appropriation for work on our national waterways Apparently the fact has been overlooked that Congress has never made an appropriation of any specific sum for reclamation On June 17 1902 the reclamation law was passed setting aside the proceeds from the sales of public lands in certain Western States and territories for the construction of irrigation works within their borders The law at the same time provided that every dollar so expended should be returned to the Government by the settlers who take up the lands reclaimed In other words the nation made an advance of the receipts from the sales of certain public property to make marketable other public property Out of the many millions expended by the Government in river and harbor Improvements not a cent has ever been returned directly to the Treasury nor was it expected that any return would be mad- eDepartments Wide Authority The act gives the Secretary of the Interior a very wide lati tude in the

four million dollars requiring upwards of 9 per cent of the entire reclamation fund although Arizona has contributed less than 1 per cent It is stated by the engineers that the opportunities for water storage in Ari zona are next to Wyoming the best in the arid West while the soil of that territory is not only extremely fertile and lying at a moderate altitude but the climate is semitropical and under careful cultivation ten or even five acres will support a family Southern California today with a similar soil and climate has thousands of pros perous little five and ten acre farms The third

Yellowstone where owing to the plentiful flow of water none of the embarrassing com plications of vested water rights ex ist which have prevented work thus far on the upper Missouri River and on the Milk River The funds allotted to Montana for the Huntley Lower Yellowstone and Milk River projects amount to over three million dollars or nearly nine per cent of the fund which is in excess of the

but getting their remarks before their constituencies at home in the borning some will be the basis the committees and pigeonholed 01 possibly merged into the one or two bills which will be taken up for serious consideration by the House and Senate a vast difference of opinion on the railroad rate question There are some who tell us that the term railroad signifies everything that is JUDGE PETER GROSSCUP bad and that no legislation could be too severe to mete out as a proper pun ishment for these monsters of extor tion On the other hand there are those who think that the railroads have been of a very material benefit to the country and that while they should be regulated and shorn of their undoubted powers to injure the shippers and the communities which de pend upon them they should still be accorded a hearing and reasonable treatmentThe attitude on the railroad question is specific He favors the enlargement of the powers of the Interstate Commerce Commission so as to enable that body to fix railroad rates where they are deemed by the Commission to be excessive at the = n JJIsamecourse his desire that nothing should be done to injure railroad properties or drve the companies out of business The railroads themselves are not pi d with this plan of regulation While many of them may not have done in past times the best possible by the public they fear that to give an absolute ratemaking power to a politi cal commission such as the Interstate Commerce Commission appointedby a Chief Executive would be not only an unconstitutional method of regulation hut would place in that borlv a power which if not wisely administered might practically put them the rail roads out of businessThe provision that thev to the courts after a rate had been fixes the Commission andTint into

passed by that body No ac tion was taken however by the Sen ate but after adjournment the Senate Committee on Interstate Commerce held extended hearings and during the present Congress there has been a flood of railroad rates bills in both houses ranging all the way from the Interstate Commerce Commission bill which is generally considered as the administration measure to bills widely and radically different in their pro visions Bills have boon introduced by Senator Dolliver of Iowa by Senator Foraker of Ohio by Senator Elkins of Virginia the Chairman of the Senate Interstate Commerce Committee by Senator Morn of Alabama by Sena tor Culberson of Texas by Representa tive Hepburn of Iowa the chairman of the railroad rate committee of the House by Representative Hogg of Colorado also the Interstate Com merce Commission bill and various othersSenator Morgan recently made the first argument in the Senate on the rate question in support of his bill which pro1 q fr the regulation of railroad rates through the regular courts of the country Senator Elkins bill also proposes that the Federal courts shall determine whether rates are excessive and provides for an in junction against any road which is found to be charging an excessive rate The bill which has been introduced by Representative Hogg formulated by Judge Peter Grosscup of the United States District Court of Chicago who rendered the decision against the Beef Trust provides for a special railroad court to decide all such matters Judge Grosscups bill establishes seven Courts of Transportation situated in different sections of the country to try the particular cases arising within their territory During a stated period of each year the judges of the seven courts are to meet together and hold court en bane in Washington or elsewhere just as the Supreme Court of the United States sits together for a stated term after having held individ ual court in the different Federal dis tricts of the United States There is right of appeal from this Court of Transportation to the Supreme Court of the United States It is argued in favor of this bill that inasmuch as railroad rate matters even where they are decided upon by the Inter state Commerce Commission must nally go to court the matter can be simplified by having them considered in the beginning by this Court of Transportation Also that this Court of Transportation having no other business to attend to can try the rail road cases much more quickly than the regular courts while the members will be experts on the subject making the subject the study of their lives The Grosscup bill also continues the work of the Interstate Commerce Commission with some modification in organization authorizing that body to arbitrate railroad matters wherever possible and to act as counsel or at torney for the shipper or complainant at the Governments expense wherever any case of controversy arises between the shipper and the railroads This bill is favored as a measure whose provisions overcome the danger which it is stated would arise from the creation of a Commission at Wash ington which would hold the vast rail road interests of the United States in the hollow of its hand There is an apparently growing sentiment among many people that to constitute any body of men a political commission with such vast power as the ability to make or unmake any railroad rate on the 70000 miles of railroad in the country would afford such an enor mous centralized power as has never heretofore been dreamed of by the most radical advocates of the central government idea rs against the diffu sion of power among the people and the several States It is realized that such power in the hands of any ad ministration would if misused in any degree make TV the indefinite continuance in power of that political party and require an absolute iiTti na of the entire nation en masse to bring about political changes The great number of railroad bills thus far introduced and which are being widely discussed show that there is as yet no general crystalizatlon of sentiment on the subject And that statesmen and snnposed pnecinlMs tn say nothing of the average

to develop the diastase and properly treat the other elements in the wheat to produce the coffeelike flavor that makes suspicious people wonder But there never has been one grain oldfashioned or drug coffee in Postum and never will be Another thing we have on file in our general offices the original of every testimonial letter we have ever published We submit that our attitude regarding coffee is now and always has been absolutely fair Ii one wants a stimulant and can digest coffee and il does not set up any sort of physical ailment drink it But if coffee overtaxes and weakens the heart and it does with some Or if it sets up disease of the stomach and bowels and it does withsome Or if it causes weak eyes and it does with some Or if it causes nervous prostration and it doe withmany Then good plain oldfashioned common sense might without asking permission of coffee merchants suggest to quit putting caffeine the drug of coffee into a highly organized human body for health is realty wealthand the happiest sort of wealth Then if ones own best interest urges him to stud into the reason and Theres a reason he will un earth great big facts that all of the sophistries of tb coffee importers and roasters cannot refute LiByredenc1 WM chell ntlnnvSome years since there was no little excitement throughout the South caused by the announcement that monkeys had been proved to be Wholly capable as cotton pickers and of course much cheaper than native labor All sorts of stories were in the air some partly true and many wholly false until finally some newer and later sensation relegated this one to forgetfulnessA years since I received a visit from my old California partner who had settled in the South and now owned one of the finest small plantations in the State From him heard the story first hand as he him self was responsible for it As we sat around the blazing log fire in my Virginia home and smoked and talked of our early days in California and the Territories he sudden ly broke out into his hearty laugh and said Fred did you ever hear of my monkey trade and how they picked my cotton for me and raised merry iiob all through our part of the state I replied that since he asked the ques ion I seemed to recollect having read something to that effect only that It was but a very faint impression and had probably been dismissed from my mind as a fake story No he answered it was absolutely true and I yet believe it could be made a thorough and complete success not only in the cotton fields but in large orchards and perhaps among the smaller fruits and berries You know he continued that be Eide my plantation I have several good mines in Georgia the working of which while not of a bonanza nature adds quite materially to my income One morning a short thickset man of forty whose rolling gait plainly betokened the sailor walked up my roadway and to the piazza where I sat talking with my overseer and enjoying my morning pipe The two large fields of cotton on either side of the road were about ready to pick BIG APE GRASPED and I was busy planning upon which field I should commence or whether I had better divide my force and offer some inducement for the party in the largest quantity in the quickest time and leaving the cleanest picked field The visitor touched his cap with the forefinger of his right hand and asked in fairly good English Are you the one the darkies call the Captain I said Yes what can I do for you He came up the steps un invited drew a chair to my side and handed me half a dozen big black cigars which I may add proved about the finest I ever have smoked Captain he said I want to sell you 125 monkeys or I want to trade them for an interest in the Buffalo gold mine I am an old miner and am tired of knocking round I was through the Buffalo yesterday and while she isnt the richest in the world a few thousand dollars would open her out wonderfully It Even admitting that I were will Ing to take you as my mining partner I asked what the devil would I do with 125 monkey I think I could use one as a for the children They feel pretty lonely since their mothers death He his hands toward the two fields with their snow white coveringSpeak out man I said Ive no time for any tfonsense Well he continued I was never more earnest in my life Monkeys as you know are great imitators all of my 125 have picked cotton on an in the Pacific where I was stranded four years ago and their is as intelligent as a man I placehimat the close of the day he will be at least one hundred pounds ahead Wait now placing his hand on my knee YOIr superintendent at the mine says you have offered a half interest for 1000000 I value my monkeys at 100 each but I will make you aa even exchange I will oversee their work for the three days ami if twice as much cotton has not been picked as by an equal number ot darkjes you may call the trade off and Ill make no charge for the picking I wont bother you with the details said my old partner as he refilled lighted his pipe You remember I am a great believer in the Darwinian theory I like novelty and never refuse to investigate a new idea because it appears to be out of the common I did investigate this one very thoroughly and paid several visits to the vessel where the mon keys were kept I could almost con verse with the big leader who proved intelligentIhuman being I treated him the more attached to me he seemed to become while I noticed that he at once resented any familiarity towards me by the After some thought as to how the darkies would regard this remarkable innovation of what they might con sider their rights I made the trade In company with the sailor who answered to the name of Fernando I ordered my darkies out onto the lawn and explained to them what I proposed to do I added I wanted neither them nor any of the men on the adjoining plantations to get it into their nigger brains that this would in any way affect their posi tions It had taken this man years of hard patient labor to educate these animals to work and probably no others would ever be imported for such a purpose that none of my men who cared to work would be discharged as there would always be plenty of extra work at the mines and I tried to explain to them that this was solely an experiment of my own After the cotton was picked if it resulted as Fernando said it would I should take a contract to pick my bors 100acre peach orchard What we should find for our Simian friends to do during the cold weather would have to be left for future considera tion TIlE THE DARKEYS WRIST bringing rather planate waved big Island lear first and others neigh Most of my darkies looked upon the whole matter as a joke and went away laughing and jollying each other but a few muttered and shook their heads and acted as if they might prove troublesome One of the latter said evidently intending that I should hear that hed be damned if hed work on a plantation where they employed beasts- I had had trouble with the man at several different times He was a powerfully built negro nearly six feet four inches in his bare feet and when not In liquor holding the record of the fastest and cleanest cotton picker in the section But he had a very surly disposition and was too fond of threatening his fellow workmen with his big knife which was half as long as an Austrian sabre and which he kept as sharp as a razor I had cautioned him about this and told him that if I ever saw him draw that knife on any one black or white I would shoot him without warning He was well aware of my facility with a revolver and was generally obedient to my orders After his remark above getIordered him to report to the cashier get his pay and for the future keep off the plantation About two oclock on the third day Fernando came driving up the road with three twohorse wagons of what proved the funniest and most unique freight that ever entered our gates The occupants of the cages attheirOldPythagorason the front seat by the side of Fer anyjUdgeeyesbeamednearly as a monkey could smile as andboundedThe monkeys were permUted to kourstheirpipeswlthafter the manner of a sober old Dutch man He occasionally laid it aside and went out to his family evidently forbidding them to do this or that or ordering them to be more quiet at least expressing some sort of supervision of their actions At seven oclock he and Fernando went among them giving some sharp commands and they went quietly to their cages which were fastened by Fernando The rest of us sat on the porch smoking and part of the time I played on my banjo which latter appeared to greatly please my visitor Soon after nine as we were preparing to go to our rooms the monkey chief Pythagoras pulled my coat sleeve and walked ahead of me to mine Taking a blanket that hung Upon a peg he motioned as if he wanted to take it back to the piazza I nodded my permission and he went out with it spread it and almost asked me in so many words if he could sleep upon it I laughingly said Make yourself perfectly at home old fellow at which he grinned back at me as if he accepted it as a compli ment and curled himself upon the blanket with a great grunt of satisfaction where I left him The next morning Fernando brought out the monkeys divided them into two gangs and commenced the picking Pythagoras would lead one gang for a while and then hurry over to the head of the other run ning back to see if any cotton had been skipped and like the most competent overseer keeping a watchful supervision over the whole work Nothing like it had ever been known on any plantation We stopped an hour at noon and by night by actual weight all form er records had been beaten by over onehalf What also appeared to me very remarkable was that the pickers seemed just as lively and active when the days work was over as when it commenced That evening was a repetition of the former but before retiring I thought I saw some men moving around near the house and twice Pythagoras uttering a low grunt darted down the steps return ing and shaking his head each time as ifl something disturbed him Nothing however occurred and I finally went into my room and lay down al though but partially undressing It could not have been very long after midnight when I awoke with that indescribable feeling that some ono was moving about the room I had closed my windows on retiring but now felt the cool night air blow ing soft across my face As I me chanically grasped my revolver cocked it and raised myself suddenly to a sitting posture I felt the point of a sharp instrument piercing my neck I faintly heard the sound of a shot the room seemed full of smoke and everything went black as I fell back sense lessSeveral days had passed before I opened my eyes to returning con sciousness and what occurred during that interval I have learned only from those to whose untiring care assisted by my naturally strong constitution I owe my life The darkey I had discharged had crawled in through my window with the evident intention of robbery and murder My watch and purse lay on the floor and my necktie with a valu able diamond pin had been thrust in the pocket of his blouse Pythagoras had evidently heard the noise slight as it was or perhaps his sense of smell was as Fernando said extreme ly acute and his devotion to his mas ters friend brought him at once to my bedside I do not know whether or not mon keys can see in the dark but if not Pythagorass intuitions must at least have given him a sort of second sight for when Fernando and the overseer rushed in with lights they saw that the big ape had grasped the darkeys right wrist which held the knife with his right hand and twisted and broken the wrist in spite of the darkeys great strength while the long fingers of his left hand were pressed tightly around the throat of the darkey whom he had evidently strangled with comparative ease All would have been well had I lain still but my sudden rising had not only plunged the knife into my own neck but caused the fall of the revolver which fired the fatal shot the big bullet plowing through to faithful Pythagorass brain and killing him instantly- 7e gave the body of the darkey to some of his friends but Pythagoras was buried under a beautiful live oak and upon the mound after I recovered I placed a marble slab inscribing upon it the words Faithful to the DeathOh you ask what became of the rest of the monkeys and my experiment Well after the doctor said I would soon be all right again and permitted me to walk about I had Fernando take them out and try to resume the cotton picking which the darkies had meanwhile nearly completed They had been very uneasy and had shown so much restlessness that the morning and evening hours of relaxation had been abandoned They would give low plaintive moans and cry out like children when hurt and when released instead of romping and jumping as at first would gather in groups and chatter together as if talking over some trouble Then they would troop down to the corner of the plantation and point away off towards the South So Fernando said he would not let them out until I was well enough to give the matter my personal attention That morn ing Fernando took the lead and spoke kindly to them and tried to act as nearly as possible as old Pythagoras had done but it proved uphill work I was sitting on a fallen tree near that timber over to the left partially concealed by some busies watching the work and wondering how it would all turn out when I saw two of the monkeys skulking In my direction evidently trying to escape to the woods I had my revolver with me not on their account but because some of the darkeys friends had been heard to make threats and as the two monkeys came near to me stood up and ordered them back The larger one a female Instead of retreating as I supposed she would immediately picked up a big stone and threw it at me Though tie distance was considerable and eke urtkaTe been surprised to see me the aim was so true that it knocked my hat ef and for a moment thought I was to be the principal in another life and death struggle As she drew her arm back for another throw at the same time advancing rapidly I fired She pitched forward uttering a most unearthly screech and in a moment all the other monkeys were flying wildly to the southerly point bf the woods and shortly had vanished entirely from view What finally became of them We never knew positively but hunters and travellers report that the Everglades in Florida for the past few years have been full of monkeys and that they appear tame and friend ly but are in mortal terror of a gun and if the traveller approaches too close they shake their heads violent ly as if saying No more cotton picking for us- Fernando was at first quite disconsolate at his loss but I made him foreman of the Buffalo mine gave him a generous share of the stock and he has proven a splendid man for the position so that the returns are very satisfactory to each of us Except when we think of the sad fate and mourn the untimely loss of that remarkable Darwinian Specimen of

is probably due primarily to the strict importationwhich certain animal diseases are known to exist The elaborate and complicated system of inspections and prohibitions imposed upon the importation of meats and domestic animals by the mew meat inspection law of Germany which went Into effect a few months ago had the effect of increas ing the prices of pork beef veal and mutton by diminishing the available supply On account of a few cases of Texas fever which existed among the cattle coming from the southern and Western part of the United States live stock from this country are excluded similarly because cases of foot and mouth disease were known to exist in Russia Denmark and Sweden cattle from those countries are likewise denied admission Soon after the new Inspection law was put into effect the imports of live stock and meat supplies greatly decreased until the situation in Germany was extremely grave Prices asked for dressed meat went nuite beyond the reach of many working people in the merIehantsinvestigation showed that they were in reality in serious difficulties for instead of increased profits they were making less money than before the law went into effect A number of them announced to the municipal au thorities their intention to relinquish their business Mass meetings have been held by citizens and meat dealers with an endeavor to induce the authorities to make the meat inspection laws less stringent but so far without resultThe model abattoir and cattle markets of Europe at the present time are to be found in Germany There are extensive and well equipped establishments in several large cities but those which are the newest with the latest improvements and regarded as the best of all are at the old university town of Halle and at Mannheim on the mine These are almost duplicate plants Jut early as 1878 there were city abattoirs at Mannheim one for Jews and one for Christians In 1890 it was decided to construct a single new abat toir in connection with the new market This was completed in May 1900 This latter abattoir is a model of perfection ample provision being made for receiving animals and shipping dressed carcasses The visitor does not receive suggestions of slaughter Ing through any appearance of blood on surrounding walls nor does he smell it In the air as in many of the American slaughter houses Build ings are of brick stone iron and glass of good appearance substantially and admirably adapted to their respective purposes All are supplied with hot and cold water live steam electric lights and either am or electric power These operate a great t ty of mechanical fiorsaving appliances The hoisting apparatus is handled so that manual lifting Is almost wholly avoided and by suspended tramways carcasses and other heavy parts maybe moved in all directions in the kill ing halls Artificial ventilation Is also provided so that every apartment may be supplied with currents of fresh air dry and either cold or warm as de sired The rooms for slaughter are large light and airy Instead of little pens as is the usual case in France the arrangements at Mannheim are for a separate hall for every kind of animal and a regular corps of Hcfinspd butchers is employed by the establish mont Butchering is comparatively speak ing humanely done The Tarse anf mals are killed by a percussion gun attached to the head with a mask and the smaller ones are stunned by a blow on the bead and then bled Of course the Jewish butcherlner is accomplished by a different method and according to the rites prescribed by that religion

Department of Agriculture often receives communications from farmers who are maintaining that the practical agriculturist does not have much faith in experiments conducted at experiment stations as they are on such a small scale that great weight cannot be attached to the results The statement is made that were these experiments made on a large scale or under conditions such as confront the farmer himself they might prove more valuable Taking this standpoint as a rule to follow the New York experiment station through the Department of Agriculture has reported the results of an examination of 1138 apple orchards covering 8 642 acres in Wayne and Orleans counties New York Both of these counties are extensive apple growing regions In one township every or A PROFITABLE APPLE TREE chard as large as an acre in extent was visited Observations were made on such factors as location site as pect soil management distance between trees pruning present condition of the orchard orchard troubles etc The agent Of the New York station found that for orchards tilled five years or more there was an increased yield of about Oper cent over orchards which bad been five years or more in sod This greater yield in the tilled orchards was found not to be due entirely to cultivation as the man who tills his orchard usually gives it better care as regards fertilizers spraying pruning etc Figures were compiled of orchards in sod which were used as pasturage for live ptock While it was fou- ndomeft5tandenftmst Injurious in the orchard pasturing the orchard with neither sheep or hogs resulted in better yields than those not pastured The fertilized orchards yield an average increase of 65 bush els per acre over those to which no fertilizer had been applied Data was collected of the value of spraying apples and it was shown that while 8430 bushels of sprayed apples brought an average of 202 per bushel 6365 bush els of unsprayed apples brought but 180 per busheL The effect of distance between trees planted before 1880 was studied in its relation to yield Taking figures from an average of four years it was found that trees planted 30 by 30 feet apart yield 186 bushels per acre trees 31 by 31 to 35 by 35 feet apart 222 bushels per acre and trees 36 by 36 to 40 by 40 feet apart yield 229 bushels per acre a year Observations in the counties showed that vv the site is not a very important factor the best site is doubtless one that is sufficiently elevated to give good opportunity for air and for water drainage and not so high as to be especially exposed to the wind This survey of the New York section practicesportant fruitgrowing counties of New York and giving the actual results In yields and income by different methods of treatment in hundreds of orchards is on a sufficiently large scale to make the results obtained of more than usual value and Interest It is exceedingly gratifying to find that the cultural methods long recommended by experiment stations as a result of trials on a small scale hold true when applied to orcharding on a commercial scale UptODate Wcathcr Reports The latest work upon which the United States Weather Bureau has en tered is a system of meteorological observations from vessels at sea by wireless telegraphy and the simultaneous issuance of weather forecasts and storm warnings to those vessels The Weather Bureau has prepared a special code by means of which exact informa andIpressure temperature force and direc tion of the wind and the character of the sky are all compressed into four words As soon as any coast wireless telegraph station receives such dispatch from vessels the message is to be delivered at once to the Weather Bureau at Washington Should the contents of this message be of such importance as to demand special storm warnings notices will be prepared and dispatched by wireless telegraphy to all vessels in the vicinity affected The value of such a service might be cited when the experience of the steamship Campania is remembered On October 11 last this liner was caught in a hur ricane The storm was found to have had no great area and it is stated by the Weather Bureau that had the sys thatttimewarningenabled the Campania and other ves eels to avoid its center of activity Another feature of great value in this APPLES SHIPMENT system is that the Weather Bureau will thus be enabled to send to transAtlantic liners and other vessels information as to the limit of fog and ice on the Grand Banks so that by slightly altering their course they may steer clear of these dangers SECRETARY

cost of which might come well within 100 Such a brooder haa been given careful trial by the Connecticut experiment station and has given excellent colonyhouse heatingisboards and covered with tin or gal vanized iron About this cover around the edges of the lamp box one inch strips are nailed Two one inch holes are bored through these strips on side of the box for the purpose of ventilation A floor of matched bo ds is laid on the strips A hole 8 inches in diameter is cut in the center of this floor and over it is turned an old tin THE DOLLAR BROODER pan 10 inches in diameter the sides of the pan being full of holes to allow free circulation of heat Over this is placed a table 2 feet 6 inches square with 4 inches high Around the sides of this table is tacked a curtain of old felt cut from top to bottom at intervals of five or six inches to allow the chicks to pass in and out at will the whole being surrounded by boards 4 inches high and 3 inches long nailed together at the corners and resting on the floor of the brooder When the chicks are ten days old one of these boards may be taken away and the bridge used so that the chicks may run from the hover to the of the room The descrintion of the brooder can be found in Farmers Bulletin No 287 which can be had upon application to members of Congress or to the Secretary of Agriculture DottblcYolkcd Eggs Squire Meadows who lived down at Four Corners was classed as a mean old sonofagun He didnt mind buying new farm implements every year and allowing them to rust and ruin out in the winter rains and snows but he would not buy his wife a sew ing machine or a dishwashing machine to lessen the labors of housework She was never allowed spend ing money and whenever anything ncessary was wanted for the house the Squire always went himself to the village and made a trade of some farm stuff for the article desired One day the good wife wanted a package of darning needles and told her husband so Now Abagail he said what ther use of jrettin so stravagant Winters coming on an thars that fodder cutter ter cant yer get along somehow with less The argument ended by a reduction to a single needle Squire took a fresh
