0 We must all go up or down to gether We desire to set up a moral transactions often occur under the forms of law To cut down the navy would be a crime against the nation Against the wrath of the Lord the wisdom man cannot avail It is generally useless to try to prohibit all restraint on competion Harm to morals is worse than atiy possible harm to material interests Much can be done by legislation which is not only daastic but practical The corporation has come to stay just as the trade union has come to stay There ismore need to get rid of the causes of war than the imple ments of war This government is not and nev er will be a government by a plutocracy or a mob It is out of the question to claim a right and yet shirk the responsi bility for its exercise The noblest of all forms of gov ernment is self government but is also themost difficult This government stands for manhood first and for business only as an adjunct ofmanhood Wa judge a man by his conduct that is by his character and not by his wealth or intellect The Golden Rule must not be construed in fantastic manner as forbidding the exercise of the po lice power In such a republic as ours the one thing that we cannot afford to neglect is the problem of turning out decent citizens In the long run the one vital fac tor in the permanent prosperity of the country is the high individual character ot the average American worker Peace is normally the handmaiden of righteousness but when peace and righteousness conflict then a great and upright people can never for a moment hesitate to follow the path which

830 to 1030 oclock there is dancing When They Camp Out In the eyes of most of the cadets the happiest portion of the year at West Point is the summer interval when the whole battalion goes into camp

entrance examination but there are examinations scattered all through the four year course and if a cadet fails to come up to the mark at any of these periodical tests he is al most certain to be dropped from the rolls Indeed so severe is this weed ingout process that only about one half of the young men who enter West Point succeed in graduating A Democratic Institution One phase of conditions at West Point which is calculated to make every American proud of the institu tion is the splendid democracy which prevails Special privileges are un known at the Point The boy whose father

Is known as Grove Castle and was erected about forty years ago by an eccentric bach elor millionaire named Cannon The estate attached to the house is of little value but the house and grounds are beautiful There Is plenty of fishing and shooting in the neighborhood and inthe hunting seas It attracts many aristocratic folk Floors Castle is tfis Ingush resi dence of the Roxburghes It stands on a terrace overlooking extensive mead ow lands spreading down to the Tweed at its junction with the Teviot It is like a veritable fairyland of cupolas and minarets of turrets and embras ured parapets The

that Duncan Forbes the historian records in reference to this succession of James Innes as fifth duke that his pedigree of thirty descents proceeds regularly from 1163 and that in all their long line

aside as a Government reserve There are in all about 5000 acres of land in this reserveland valueless for commercial or agricultural pursuits but the hand of nature has created of this vast ex pause a garden of monuments to the vegetation of long ago forming an attraction for people from all parts of the world Trunks of trees some a hundred feet long and huge logs lie in a con fusion in the same

Returned to Congress After a song Laspe of Years The return of General J Warren Kiefer to Congress after an absence- of 22 years Is of more than passing Interest for the reason that he was Speaker of the House which was organized in 18S1 It was a famous Congress and Klefers pathway was not one of roses He became involved in a controversy with H V Boynton then dean of the Washing ton correspondents and the bitter at tacks of Boynton had much to do with Kiefers retirement from public life although he was but 48 when he finished his fourth term in the House Since then he has not been idle but has been prominent in civil and mill tary life He returns to Congress as Hid Nathaniel P Banks and Galusha fA Grow They had been Speakers 0IJ K1EFER AT AT many years before and their return was notable Each like Keifer lived for years without prominence in poli tics but both were older when they came back General Kiefer is now 63 but remarkably hale and hearty He was always a conspicuous man end is the more so now because of Ins white hair and beard which were tawny brown in the days of hIs epeakership He clings to the garb of the old time statesman and wears at ell times an old fashioned swallow tailed coat cut much like the dress coats of today General Kiefer served four terms in Congress com tug to Washington first for the special session of He was chosen Speaker of the 47th

Lee sur rendered A born soldier he could not resist the call to arms when the war with Spain came on and was made a majorgeneral of volunteers He commanded a brigade under in the Virginia battles that led up to Appomattox At the battle of Sailors Creek General Kiefer had an experience out of the ordinary Going alone at dusk to observe the lines of the enemy he found himself suddenly surrounded by a large body of confederates They could not dis tinguish his Federal uniform in the dark and he was equal to the occas- Ion Wheeling his horse about he cried out in tones of command Atten tion men right

eager for active participation in the councils of the nation As an ex Speaker he has been given a chairman ship and was also allowed the privilege of choosing his old seat without going into the lottery scramble Speaker Cannon was in Congress during general Klefers term as Speaker and they were warm friends General Kiefer represents one of the best districts in Ohi containing big manufacturing establishments He has found few of hIs old colleagues in the House Many are dead and many more long ago retired to private life Cannon and Bingham Hitt cnd Payne also Ketcham of New York

experts at Washington do not look for the passage ot an insur ance law during this session of Con gress Statesmen of all sorts and will talk much about it There will be a great deal of discussion on the floors of both houses Senators and Representatives alike will vie with each other in denunciation of the methods of the insurance magnates as ex posed in the legislative investigation which occurred in New York Already divers and sundry lawmakers at both ends of the Capitol have submitted remarks that have stirred their constit uents to increased admiration of the eloquence and alertness of the men whom they have had the wisdom and foresight to send to Congress But in the end nothing will be donethat is nothing except a heap of talk No Constitutional Provision The reason of this is that the Judi ciary Committees both of the Senate and House thus early have about con cluded that the Constitution of the United States does not provide for the kind of legislation which is recommended in the Presidents message WARREN 48 AND 1877 1881 no Sheridan conditions and is being advocated by Senator Dryden of New Jersey president of cne of the big life insurance companies as well as by other financial magnates who like Senator Dryden are directly interested in insurance and are presumed therefore to know better than anybody else what the exigencies of the situation demand Senator Dryden who studied law in Yale but who has not practiced much in the courts is of the opinion that there is nothing in the Constitution either expressed or implied which Con gress should regard as an inhibition in this matter But other members of the Senate who have practiced law for years declare that in this the New Jer sey statesman is in error It is as sumed that generally speaking the picked lawyers of both branches of Congress compose the Committee on in each house and it can be positively stated that as the case now stands the majority of the members of both committees are opposed to the general proposition- It is of course possible that a bill may be framed bringing the subject within the united powers of the Con stitution but none of the measures thus far presented meets the objections of most of the experts in Congress who have been consulted on the matter thellIouseJustice Marshall blazed the way for just such an emergency as this in his famous decision defining in effect inter state commerce as intercourse between States to say nothing of the applicability to this case of another allem bracing decision cf his concerning the implied powers of the Constitution Not Satisfas ry to Lawyers But broad v these doctrines are they obvious are not satisfactory to the majority ot the lawyers who are members of tl e two committees oh the jUdicIaryAs the Senate has gone more directly at the subject than has the House At the opening of the session Senator Culberson of Texas introduced a resolution calling upon Congress to investigate the matter thoroughly with the view of determining the dis puted point as to the authority of the lawmaking body to deal with the subject as recommended by President Roosevelt This resolution was referred to the Judiciary Committee Two or three days before Con gress adjourned for the holiday re cess the Senate committee briefly con byMrtion to a subcommittee with instruc tions to report in extenso as soon as practicable after the holiday recess The members of this subcommittee Messrs Clark Spooner Kno Bacon and Culberson are of opinion that there is no warrant in the Constitution for Congress to assert over insurance the power which the President Senator Dryden and apparently all of the in surance magnates appear to think is inherent in the legislative department Meanwhile a great deal of wirepull ing is going on in favor of the general proposition It cannot be asserted that anyone of the numerous bills thus far presented has the approval either of President Roosevelt or Senator Dry den though it is presumed that a meas ure embodying their exact views will be submitted within the next few weeks It is known that so anxious are the insurance people for some form of legislation taking away from the States the supervision of insurance companies that they are prepared to spend unlimited money in the work of education but thus far they have not been able to make much headway Like all campaigns of education to which Washington has become accus tomed it is expected that the usual amount of speculation as to the out come will be indulged but this will not effect the judgment or the conduct of those members of Congress who have the final decision of the question through their influence with the Judici ary Committees States Insist on Rights A factor of no inconsiderable weight in the matter is the insistence of near ly all the State governments upon their rights in the premises and as Congress does not seem to care to lend further aid at this juncture to the centraliza tion movement which is rapidly becom ing an acute issue in State politics it is regarded as altogether likely that the Federalization of insurance will at least be held in abeyance

weather but swelling rapidly with heavy rains The rural carrier whose route to Ir waItersource of delay and inconvenience that the Department ordered the route changed and Mr Taggart was directed to place his box on the main road Mr Taggart protested declaring that ho would not walk that distance Then his Inventive brain conceived the trolley or aerial mail box At convenient corner of his porch he placed a wind lass with a small steel cable extending down to the boxpost on the main road around a deeplygrooved wheel on tho post and back to the porch As shown the box Is connected In this cable forming the link for the broken ends The box Is fitted with top wheels which run on a fixed cable stretched tight from the porch to the postWhen the mall carrier reaches the boxpost which is visible from the porch he puts In the mail and raises a signal Some one at the house takes the handle of the windlass and turns It rapidly and the box with Its burden of mail comes sailing up the wire The mll is then removed and the box coasts back to its post The distance of one hundred yards is covered in about ten seconds which Is as as a good sprinter can cover the distance Multiplying gears In the

affiliated was called the Omega which was twothirds liter oftman won die tinction as a national orator and cam paign speaker In our rival society thingsiwasgreatly on the fact that our feast of soullOurssome reputation as a speaker I was either too bashful er too ignorant to take part in any of the debates One of my intimate chums was named Grant who excelled in that thanIlearn to debate and frequently urged me to rt least make a commencement arguing that after I had gotten over my embarrassment I would enjoy the fun and excitement The subject of debate one evening was to be Was the influence of Aaron Burr upon the time in which he lived good or bad Grant knew that I was quite an admirer of Burr had read quite extensively about him both in history and fiction and said to me that this would be an excellent opportunity for me to make my do but Grant himself was to answer one of the oldest and best debaters and could answer the one followed him He coached me very thoroughly told me to listen carefully to what tho opponents urged against Burr to cite my proofs showing he was neither a drunkard nor a libertine as they would assert and then show chat a debt Washington and the country owed him for his military skill and ability during the Revolution He said I must not allow myself to become flurried or excited that I could occasion ally refer to my notes and in fact talk arguIingthe important part I was to play in the coming drama and there seemed to mono reason why I should not score a complete success But as the hour of the meeting drew nearer the success seemed to grow more problematical and by the time the debate opened my thoughts were completely topsyturvy and I could hardly remember whether Burr was an Italian or a Chinaman The man who opened tho debate showed plainly that my hero was ev erything that was vile and wicked and should have been tried and convicted as a traitor and I found myself won dering how Grant could possibly an swer all these terrible charges But his defense was splendid He spoke in IOXITHE INGENIOUS MAIL fast weeping who his usual fiery manner and all my for mer admiration for Burr returned and I became eager to help defend him The debater who I was to answer was a slow earnest speaking fellow not very bright but accustomed to ar gument and fond of statistics and even before he had finished I had again veered around and found I was losing my faith in my side of the question When my name was called I rose as if in a dream and for about I pre sumed ten minutes talked the veriest lot of nonsense that was ever heard In a debating club If I looked at my notes J found that I had said every thing about the subject that I could think of and if I tried tp extemporize I repeated the former things over and- over The ordeal was finally passed and as I took my seat there was a lit tle perfunctory applause and then tho president promptly decided the caso against Burr Grant was sitting quietly and look ing straight ahead into vacancy and I noticed he had made no demonstration In my favor Leaning toward him I timidly touched him on the shoulder and said Well old fellow did I make a complete failure No he

fellow judges had read stories in the great short storj contest of last ColliersI their eyes were almost brains almost too weary for consecutive thought and their ideas almost too chaotic from the long continued strain to allow an unbiased decision when the distinguished statesman scholar took from the table the last of the many thousands of manuscripts sent in lighted a fresh Havana and settled himself wearily in the depths of his big arm chair The sigh of satisfaction was still more pronounced when as he tore open the envelope he found but a few pages of typewritten matter scarcely R thousand words in all and his Thank Heaven was recoched by his companions as they also realized that 9 short half hour would complete their weeks of selfimposed labor There had been silence in the room for several minutes while the others were thinking of the jumble of ideas that would for months occupy their winds where love and war humor and pathos had created a heterogeneous mass Many of the stories submitted had been of a very high order of merit some of the very highestand final decision would they realized tax to he utmost their ability to select Some had been witty and brilliant some able but verbose but many very jnny had proven tedious and trashy and they each and all agreed they WOuld never again care to read even the headlines of anyShort Story God exclaimed the Senator half reverently half profanely and so this isras the tragic end of our dear chum of old 71 one of the best and bravest fellows who ever lived For the honor of old Harvard gen Semen bowing gravely to his asso fcMes let me read aloud this last of ftlr short stories S He sauntered into Station 17 of the S3re Department late one stormy af Sernoon in December a small gray haired rather weazened specimen of Etomanity looking as though he had sot made the acquaintance of a square meal for many days A close observer feowever would have noticed that his ejes were very brigh and keen his muscles well knit his gait springy Bad would perhaps have decided that 6ils physique did not require a very rarge amount of sustenance and that be was ignorant of the pangs of dys gvepsia Speaking to no one in particular he pemarked with a peculiar drawl sometimes think I would enjoy a pob of this sort myself It looks corn ortable here- SeventeenS was known as the crack Eompany of the force Its members Kfere all athletes and it had to its Credit an unparalleled record of brilliant and impossible rescues At these words of the old man grim Smiles broke over the faces of the half dozen men present A young fireman Dne of the most and athletic pf the entire department replied Why grandpap we have to do things here when the bell rings Chil dren arent allowed on the force I know they are not sonny but after all I judge that age isnt the Dnly thing that counts in this game Ill tell you grandpap the young fellow added with a wink to his companions if you can follow me in a few little exercises we have here morning and night Ill resign and recom mend you for my place Go ahead sonny your friends can act as judge and umpire The fireman walked over to the other side of the room took up the oak handle of a stone breaker grasped it firmly in both hands and with a sudden wrench broke it squarely through the middle Throwing the two pieces on the floor he remarked laconically but In a rather conceited tone Theres another handle in the corner where I got this one but I reckon you wont care for It No perhaps this one will answer said the old man taking up the two short pieces and looking them over rather curiously With a quick jerk he broke one of the halves and then the other and throwing all the pieces on the floor drawled out Should call that more of a trick than a trial of muscle A murmur of astonishment rtn 9c 8 DRf4ILLi7 s round the room and his young con testant showed no little chagrin for this had been his favorite exhibition which none of his associates had beert able to accomplish The old fellow continued unconcernedly Now if it were a trial of strength perhaps some of you younger fellows could tire the old man out springing like a cat he caught with his right hand one of the rounds of a ladder by which the men climbed to the second story and pulled him self up with a single arm Lowering himself he repeated this chinning operation several times with great rapidity first with one arm and then the other Dropping to the floor he strolled over to a pair of 100 pound iron dumbbells and began handling the heavy weights as if they were hol low or made of wood passing the bells from hand to hand poising them on high without a tremor and finally laying them down without even the no ticeable quickening of his breath The men looked sharply at one an other Not the best of them could give such an exhibition of strength The sergeant was just growling Old man who might you be anyway when the alarm gong sounded the firemen sprang to their places and the little old athlete was temporarily forgotten A close observer however might have noted him dart out of the door and vanish around the corner with the speed of a trained runner The fire was in a lately finished apartment house and was well under way when the engines arrived Lad ders were quickly placed against the building and the brave firemen made many trips up and down rescuing the frightened occupants Finally all the inmates appeared to be saved and efforts were directed toward extinguish ing the fire or preventing its spread Suddenly everyone was startled by the wild screams of a child and a lit tIe girl of not more than ten years whose scanty apparel save evidence that she had but just awakened appeared at a window of the top floor wring ing her little hands and crying in extreme terror as well she might for the fierce flames were bursting from all the lower floors of the building Ladders were art beneath her window and several of the more daring firemen at CLASSMATEItempted to ascend only to be driven back with scorched hair and blistered handsA from the crcwd to the right attracted the attention of firemen and spectators and all held their breath as a little old man was seen climbing with the agility of a cat the galvan ized waterspout on the corner of the building Reaching the top and grasp ing the cornice he rapidly worked himself along until he was directly over the open window He must have had a wonderfully correct eye for as he seemed to expect his left foot reached just to the top of the scaling ladder below him Placing his foot firmly upon the slight support he re leased first one hand and then the other sliding them along the rough brick side of the building as if grasping an imaginary rope Cau tiously lowering himself to a stooping position he suddenly threw himself inside the open window as the ladder burned near the middle fell to the ground with a crash With scarce a moments loss of time he and piled several thick reappearedI window sill Then with strapped tightly upon his back he bal anced carefully upon these reached up and again grasped the cornice The firemen at once realized what a desperate plan he was about to attempt and quickly placed another ladder just around the corner of the building not yet reached by the flames Slowly and carefully the old man with his precious burden clinging to his shoulders worked his way along the Insecure gutter his progress at times painfully retarded and the distance seemed great Would he beat the flames In the race Would he be able to hold lOUt encumbered as he was The great crowd below held Its breath Finally he clutched the projection at the corner and swung his feet upon the rounds of the ladder Long tongues of fire leaped from the room be had so lately occupied and seemed to be striking at the rescuer and the rescued In vicious though impotent fury but strong and willing hands met and re ilievedr the old man of his burden and aided his evidently failing strength down the steep incline But the pitcher had been to the well once too often and even while the cheers and words of encouragement were sounding in his ears the life blood gushed from his mouth and sinking heavily to the ground murmured Hold tight little one and the brave old heart suddenly ceased its busy work Hes dead the dear old fellow saving a young life of which he had never heard whispered one to

Work of Anthony Corn stock has Brought Splendid Results Few of those who have read of the accomplishments of Anthony Com stock in his crusades against vice which have made his name known in every section of the United States have any idea of the history of the man whose singlehanded exertions have been largely responsible for the suppression of obscene literature and photographs He has been painted as a crank of the weirdest sort a notoriety seeker a grafter using a cloak of morality to enrich himself and every thing else wild and dishonest but he is none of these and today his posi tion is stronger and his influence more potent than ever before His life has been threatened scores of times by desperate criminals whom he has deprived of their unlawful gains and sent to the penitentiaryI Many attempts have stab shoot and poison him ground glass has been scattered in his food infernal machines have been sent him through the mails and by express he has been accused of unprintable depravity his honesty has been sneered at and his every motive impugned but he has gone unscathed amid physical perils and his reputation has escaped the cleverly planned pitfalls designed to ruin him in the eyes of the people and dissipate the enormous power for good which he has built up by almost a lifetime of devotion to a high duty Guardian of Youthful Morals Mr Comstock is best known for his work in the prosecution of those who make it a business to sell indecent books pamphlets and pictures to the young but as a matter of fact he is equally active in crushing out other forms of vice not only in New York hut in the country at large He travels a great deal from city to city and has been a prominent figure in reform crusades in various sections of the coun try and has frequently produced important results while others supposed to ba helping him were engaged in talking it over In a recent interview Mr Comstock tells for the first time the history of his life and how he abandoned a prom ising business career in which he might have made a comfortable for tune to pursue a vocation which has never netted him more than a living and has left him in declining years still with a mortgage of 10000 on his house at Summit N J He is sixtyone years of age and was born in Connecticut His brother Samuel was killed at the battle of Gettysburg and young Anthony took his place until the end of the war Returning to his native State he entered a grocery store in New Haven but later went to Tennessee where he purchased supplies for the Lookout Mountain Institute His health failed and he went to New York landing there with 345 in his pocket He got a job at 12 per week but resigned it to take one at 5 because he thought the new one offered better opportuni ties for advancement While eking out an existence on this salary he found that the young men in the store were readers of stories of the vilest sort and he made his first raid He learned that a bookseller in ashop a few doors away was selling the books Young Comstock took a policeman to the place and had the proprietor arrested and in the case involved resurrected what was a dead letter law He won outProgressing rapidly In the commercial world the young man was soon making 1500 a year commissions as a salesman but his abhorrence of vice was in nowise abated He found a man named Simpson trading in ob scene literature and told a policeman his troubles Instead of arresting the man the policeman warned him to skip out and that was the pivot on which the life of the young reformer turned He had the policeman dis missed for the bit of treachery and the papers began to take notice They asked why he did not go into Nassau street and proceed against the open violators of the law there Mr Com stock answered the question by going On all sides Illegal publications were openly for sale and on March 2 1872 when he was but twentyeight years old he caused the arrest of seven men The fruits of this were the suppression of 169 different books the raiding of three publishing houses the confiscation of 30000 worth of plates and engravings from one man In Brooklyn the seizing of 16000 worth of plates and books from a man In Manhattan together with six tons of stereotyped plates from his printer and the destruction of 10000 worth of bound books belonging to still another man All of this was accomplished by Mr Comstock without any assistance whatever from organization or committee He Found a Good Angel He had started to buy a home and had paid 500 down on it but giving a mortgage for the rest he used aU he could save from his salary to carry on his crusade He waa a firm believer in prayer and be believed that it was In aaawe to I supplications that Morris K Jesup the philantroplst took him up at that time Mr Jesup gave him 500 to help him in the fight and 150 to reimburse him for his ex penditures already made Since that time Mr Jesup has taken a deep interest in the Comstock crusades and has given his money free ly A meeting was held at Mr Jesups house in 1873 by prominent citizens the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice was formed and Mr Comstock was engaged as its agent at a regular salary- A determined attack on thE publishers and vendors of obscene litera ture and pictures was at once begun and at a fitting time for never had there been so many and such brazen violations of the laws of the land and decency as at that time Advertise ments were boldly printed in the pa pers and thousands of circulars were distributed by the dealers many of the circulars being placed in the hands of children as they left school An in effective law was passed in 1872 against the use of the mails for im moral purposes but it accomplished nothing and Mr Comstock endeavored ANTHONY COMSTOCK to have a more stringent bill put through Mr Jesup defrayed his ex pens s tc Washington and Senator Buckingham of Connecticut intro duced the measure in the Senate and Clinton L Merriam in the House In tense opposition was met from a pow erful lobby of publishers but the bill got through by a small margin and with the aid of Speaker James G Blaine was among the last taken up and passed on the night of the final day of the session of 1873 He Refused the Salary After the law went into effect Sena tor Buckingham asked Mr Comstock to take a position as postofnce inspector to see that it was enforced He ac cepted the position but declined the salary on the ground that he might be placed under obligations to politicians and on March 5th 1S73 was made a special agent of the department which commission has been rerfewed each year since then So severe was the blow dealt the publishers of the profitabls sub rosa lit erature that desperate efforts were made to have the law repealed and in 1887 a petition containing 70000 names and headed by Robert G Ingersoll backed by unlimited money and the most adroit lobbyists was presented to Con gross asking that the restrictions be removed Mr Comstock appeared alone before the House committee which had the repealing measure and in the face of severe and brutal con demnation was successful In preventing favorable action As part of thr campaign against him a book entitled The Life and Crimes of Anthony Com stock was published and seventeen thousand copies distributed It was stated that he himself was a dealer in the very things against which he waged war and that he had been arrested by five district attorneys but he kept on his way and never once let up in the struggle with evil Mr Comstock is still a postoffice agent without pay He is allowed five cents per mile mileage and 150 per day witness fees while attending courts as a witness but these payments he turns into the treasury of the society for which he is agent In this way he has turned over more than 21000 which he might have kept The work which Anthony Comstock has accomplished and Is doing today is of incalculable benefit to the moral fibre of the maturing citizenship of the Republic The man is one of Gods appointed It is said that Admiral Lord Charles Beresford of the British navy was the first European to see the face of the

Mortgage on a Pennsylvania Farm GUY ELLIOTT MITCHELL There is a farm in southeastern ennsylvania Which the Department I Agriculture considers a model twen eth century farm It consists of fit ten acres thirteen of which are in iltivation the remaining two acres sing occupied by buildings yard etc his land came into the possession of le present ownera minister of the ospelin 1881 with a mortgage of r200 upon it Improving the soil The soil of the farm is a reddish mewhat gravelly clay So run down as it in 1881 that it did not support IB two cows and one horse kept upon Last year it raised all the rough e for thirty head of stock seventeen which are cows in milk It has en brought up to its present remark 3le state of fertility solely by the use stable manure applied directly from le barn The system of handling this anure is such that none is lost either quid or solid No commercial fertil ers have ever been used and no ma are has been hauled from the city his is a practice greatly differing Om that is vogue on the majority of Farm Buildings 2nd Silos How ie farms of this country where the vner seeing a dollar in sight for a ad of manure readily sells it to a ighbor rather than apply it to his vn soil where its value might be iree or four times as great On the odel farm in Pennsylvania most of ie crops are fed to the stock and thus manureUponrm the owner with no previous ex readhatlle One of the first books secured by theilingg consists in cutting and giving een feed in summer instead of allow pastureitsrner did nOJ prove satisfactory the st year because no other feed was ted and the cows did not do well In Idition the manure was difficult to tndle and it was not easy to keep the jn clean Before the next season wever the new farmer had procured ewarts book on feeding animals and om it learned his first lesson in glanced rations He also learned feed some dry hay with the soiling ops thus giving the manure a proper nsistency Thenceforward the man renient of the constantly growing srd of cows was a simple matter and e farm began not only to pay a profit it to increase in fertility so that Ithin seven years the entire mort r0 was Bald eg TIe farm is strictly a dairy farnl beingilkch year The cows are all registered irscys except one or two picked up at iighljoring sales They are notonly ire bred but well bred Male calves Iortbjtrposes none ever male calf is not fit to raise for a eeder it is killed at birthcelt esnt pay to feed 18 worth of meal a calf that will sell for 7 said the raer The young cattle sold from 1s farm bring on an average 100 iece and about five are disposed of ch year The milk is all sold at 25 cents a gal n the year round to a State institu on located two miles distant The ilk tests high is perfectly clean and ee from adulteration There Is never lY complaint from the buyers on the her hand this farmer is considered public benefactor As soon as the ilk is drawn it is placed in perfectly ean cans standing in cold water some stance from the barn and stirred equently to aerate it and aid the toting The milk vessels are never lowed to stand around uncleaned but e washed as soon as the milk is re oved first with cold water then with riling and finally again with ater The amount of milk produce om the seventeen cows is nearly role at all seasons and averages abou ventysix gallons a day While thi eld of approximately 4800 pounds jar for each of the seventeen cows opt is not enormous by any means is good The Income from the milk roduced is about 2400 a year The atlay for concentrated feeding stuffs 62j in Farm Labor One man and a boy do the labor of ie farm except in hay harvest and ring the cutting of silage So sys J- tematic is the work that the owner may leave for a week without notice to the laborers with no interruption to the regular routine The feeding of the cows the handling of the milk keeping the barn clean and disposing the manure are all worked out under such a system that they require little supervision on the part of the proprIe- tor There is no pasture on this farm for pastures on such highpriced land are out of the question There is not even a barn lot the thirty head of cattle remaining in the stalls the year round We have been taught that this is not a good practice for it has been supposed that milch cows need a tain amount of exercise yet it must be considered that the Danish cows stand in their stalls from November to May and are staked out in the field from May to November and yet Denmark ranks high in the dairy industry and her cows are healthy Balanced Rations a Necessity Notwithstanding this extraordinary practice the bill for veterinary services on this Pennsylvania farm during the past six years has been but 150 and r Applying Manureto Land this was made necessary by an ace dental injury to one of the cows One regular breeder is fifteen years old but is still vigorous and healthy giving milk enough to make it profitable to retain her in the herd Experts in the Department of Agriculture state that betterkeptfed to them every day in the year consisting of some succulent material silage in winter and rye timothy and clover corn or peas and oats in sum mer A second portion is made up of ry hay or fodder which gives some consistency to the manure The third portion consists of meal products of which three kinds are usedbranoilmeal and gluten Many dairymen would be surprised to learn that every cow on this farm has four ounces of finQtablefeedsTherethirtyfourquantityacres planted on June 22nd Eleven men three teams and a traction en infillingThe proprietor of this farm has not adopted any systematic rotation of crops as every foot of land receives an abundance of manure every year or two There is but little trace of weeds and those that do grow are not of the undesirable hind Intelligent methods- of cultivation enabled the owner last year not only to produce all the rough stockbuthay which was sold- Handling the ManUre The remarkable yields on this farm are due entirely to the intelligent use of stable manure Most farmers waste more than half of the value of the manure produced on their farms On this model farm every particle of the plant food is utilized The method of handling manure in this case can be used only on farms on which stock is kept in stalls and is therefore not applicable to all styles of stockfarming Behind each row of cows is a gutter eighteen inches wide and seven inches outletsTheythe whole barn is disinfected twice a week by a free use of creoline and the interior is frequently whitewashed When cleaned the gutters are sprinkled with ashes or dry dirt to absorb what moisture may be present During the day a quantity of absorbent consisting of leaf mold rot ten sod etc is placed in them The manure is lifted from the gutters Into a cart backed up to the door and Is fieldsdsummer thetfieldsagrass lands This is the experience of a pioneer previoustraining couldfromapplied principles and business meth ods and has blazed a path into a region of great possibilities There Is no doubt that his experience can be zJ duplicated on other farms but It depends on the soil and the man who has the management of it It cannot be done by one who is not a student A similar system may be developed on any dairy farm that disposes of past tures Where land is cheaper and the dairyman can afford pastures the sys tem would be radically different in summer but not in winter Probably the most important single feature of this Pennsylvania farm aside from the systematic manner in which it is con ducted is the one of handling the ma nure The fact that the stock is stabled the year round makes it pos sible to save all the manure both liquid and solid aid apply it ta the land Being applied daily as produced any leaching by rains carries the leached materials into the soil where it is needed The remarkable yields of every portion of this farm seem to indicate that this method of handling manure is highly satisfac tory A BIG EDITORIAL OFFICE The Department of Agriculture Pub lishes Over Four Booklets for Every Day in the Year One of the biggest editorial offices in the Government and probably in the country is in the Department of Agriculture where the Division of Publications edits revises and in some cases returns to the authors for rewriting an average of four bul letins or books for every day in the year During the last fiscal year 1 463 new publications passed through the editors hands nearly 400 of these however being issued by the Weather Bureau which is under the Department of Agriculture The total number of copies of the remain ing 1000 odd publications printed during the year was 12000475 Many of these are generously illustrated and beside the great number of orig inal photographs used the artists of the Department make something over 1000 drawings a year for illustrating The head of this Division or the Editor of the Department as he is known is Mr George William Hill an oldtime editor of an agricultural paper but he has held his present position for many administrations There have been very many rad ical changes said Mr Hill in the publications of the Department with in the last ten years At one time the Agricultural Reports and other pamphlets and bulletins issued were more or less technical having the rep utation generally throughout the coun try of being written in about as dry and uninteresting a manner as pos sible The present Secretary has con tinually impressed upon his Chiefs of Divisions the desirability of short crisp articles and bulletins especially In the annual Year Books written in a practical and simple style with the result that the Publications of the Department have come into very gen eral favor with the farmers and are eagerly sought after which is evi dent by the enormous number of requests for them The Farmers Bulletins descriptive stoCkraiSjingby all odds the most popular of the Departments of Publications They are brief written in simple style and otthebeen condensed and rewritten from the longer and more technical bulletins setting forth the results of ex haustive experiments More than 6 000000 copies of these popular bulle cIGEORGE WILLIAM HILL Chief of the Publication Division Department- of Agriculture distributedlastenormous work of editing the Agri cultural Publications is the assistant chief and editor of the Division Mr Joseph A Arnold whose knowledge of the practical side of Agricultural Publications Is something amazing The storage and distribution of this printed matter constitutes a large and important part of the Publication Divisions work the document section occupying the entire space ofa large printingyear amounted to 258172 Although we are sending out vast volume of farm bulletins re marked Mr Arnold to apes king of this a 1 work of the Department I cannoi believe that the farmers of the try as a whole appreciate what splendid mine of agricultural information exists in these farm bulletins which they can have for the asking JOSEPH A ARNOLD Editor Department of Agriculture They coyer every practical subject and would make an exceedingly val

experiments ever made IS KING ALFONSOS SHOPPING A byVisitAn amusing anecdote is related in connection with King Alfonsos recent visit to Paris In his leisure moments he was fond of taking a turn in the Rue de la Paix which is noted for its ele gant shops and making a few pur chases His majestys appearance nat urally created a good deal of flutter especially among the demoiselles de magasin who rushed to doors and win dows to see him go by so when three gentlemen stepped into a certain estab lishment one morning and the most youthful of the party asked to see some hats they were politely requested as the most natural thing in the world to wait a moment as the king was in the watchingforthereupon pervaded the features of the little party had the effect of promptly putting the quickwitted shop girls on the scent After announcing the great news excitedly to the proprietor of the establishment they clustered in a ring companIonsThis was a thousand times better than a peep
