courts the decisions of lower courts Two or three hundred thousand dollars placed in the inside pocket of a pluto cratic juggling Judge will cause his judicial mind to change every minutes during the remainder of t s miserably mean life But haul a moneyless man up before one of these miscreants elected to a judgeship by ballot box stuffing and thug gery and the fur will fly sorapidly and in such big bunches as to obscure the sun in the heavens The poor devil is- led to a felons cell to spend a misera le existence while 4jia wife and chil dren suffer for the necessaries ot life The rich devil is led tothe banquet hall of the Barbarous Bucks of high nance and is toasted to a queens taste while hiswife adds another diamond necklace to her naked bosom and receives the plaudits of the Fancy Fawnspowde ed posers puffed up by stolen dollars The Judiciary of this country gen erally speaking is as rotten as the toO of buzzards and as purchasable as calico An honest Judge in these days of piratical purldining is a God send and the community over which such a Judge presides is to be congrat ulated The country Whoawill always adhere to the golden rule of Equal rights to all and exclusive privileges to I noneJudges who will treat the rich and the poor alikeIIfa poor man steals a hog he WILL e sent to the penitentiary for one year if a rich man steals 10000 he SHOULD be sent to the

acceptance of campaign con rributions from corporations and the declaration is followed By absolution of approval adopted by the Democratic National Committee In its resolutions the Committee announces that it will accept no contributions whatever from d c sorporationsover that it will make publication before election of individual contributions above 100 The Democratic National platform emphatically and without equivocation declares for the publicity of ampaign funds and urges that the NationalS Congress pass a law making cation of the names ot the contributors to campaign funds and the amounts contributed compulsory In the Demo cratic convention this plank of the plat form was adopted with ut a dissenting vote conIven ion it was defeated by a vote of 880io94 M ISIin a most awkward attitude before the people has caused a telegram to be sent broadcast oyer the country an nquncing that he likewise also belieVes mi the publication of campaign contri butipns But Mr Taft did not urge his pdrty in national convention assembled to adopt a publicity plank Mr Taft re- fUsed to meet Mr B ryan in Washing top for the purpose of jointly urgingS Congress to pass a publicity law Taft accepted Mr Sherman as his run ningmate without word of complaint or objection Mr Sherman is a multi milhonairea trust magnate deeply dyed in the crimson tarnish of preda tory wealtha man closely alliedvwiith all the pernicious interests of Wartl Streeta Congressman who voted against and worked against each of the BryanRoosevelt reform measures And may we not also add that Mr Sherman procured from Mr Harriman a Reipublican campaign in 1904 Mr Taft did not object to but upon titJother hand approved tjie appoint 3mentTreasurer of the Republican Campaign Committee Mr Sheldon is extensively interested in twentyfive or thirty trusts he is one of the big trust builders of the countrya Wall Street banked whose paramount aim in life is to accumulate more millions To accom phsn this Mr Sheldon knows it is neo essary to continue the Republican party in power He knows that trusts have thrived under Republican rule he knQws that the Republican party has fathered and protected these gigantic c rporationsprotect d thorn in their open violations of the law Mr Sheldon knows that with the Republican party in power there is not the remotest gerof prison doors closing behind these miljtonairc robbers who with one hand upon the public throat and the other in the public pocket have shamefully plundered the peoples resources for a dozen ye rs And in the face of all these startling things Mr Taft would tryl to make it appearthqt he stands fort purity in elections that he wants campaign contributions made public and that he will put behind him all foul methods and attempt to win his elec tiorl to the Presidency by anun trampled ballot But Mi Taft fs too closely wedded to the questionable and obnoxious methods in politics He has naIRepublifi haveIDemocratic party and help to

announce that mills and factories which have been closed- ownd for several months will soon be penedand that Idlelabor will be giv en an opportunity to earn good wages This subterfuge was successfully worked in 1896and thousands of them nations hungry masses were led to be lieve1 that the returned prosperity was genuine From the depths of unsuspecting hearts they thanked the- Republican party and voted the Republican BIihg ove the Republican victory hada liardly died away when these factories and mills began closing their doors to the armies of men and women who but a few weeks before had gone to work with light hearts singing the praises of the Republican partysThe same game will not work this year Even faint hearts will understand the design and dim eyes Will see through the flimsy scheme To try to decieve the laboring classes in this old miserable way is an insult and a slap on the face of every intelli gent laborer in the land In this in stanie it looks very much to us like atcase Bf a drowning man grabbing at a traytTh screaming of the mill whistle will fall upon deaf ears this bar the b of the machinery will be to the oiling masses naught but the bellowing ofa false prophetFThe laboring people are aroused as never before they are marching under the banner of Democracy and willnot be misled by the ancient awkwardness of these Ostentations Ostriches of High Finance 1 BASE BALL ROWDYISM r An unpleasant feature which usually accompanies the very interesting game of base ball is rowdyism Two or Wee r ISowdiesto be present and being endowed not with the rudiments of common decency and common sense it is impossible for them to distinguish between legiti mate rooting and pure cussedness The hightone rooter is a gentleman of delicate tastes and of blushing fastidiousness and he is not out of place at a base ball game He is one of the features of thegarneone of the luxuries But the rowdy who has neither sense nor breeding is as obnoxious as a stale hog pten and as nestif erous as house fliesJ He goes to the ball park to create trOubleto start a fightto get somebodys head batted with a vat or somebodys teeth knocked dut with a BIt But be it said to the credit of his instinct he always manages to get behind the backstop or scraptcommences Indeed the base ball rowdy is a menace to the gamen undesirable citizen He is meaner than a wet ball and more painful than a br kenfinger But he is a fixturenearly as permanent as the diamond of the ball park and it is useless to discourse f WANTS THE KIDS Count Boni de Castellane is suing for the possession of his

best of Kipling stories finished with this saying of Mulvaney seenIamessage go from the Eldest states that Oklahoma has shown to us a man There were days in Washington last week that tried mens courage and their personal and political standards of right with a test of rare severity Duty has compelled the North Ameri can to censure every congressman and every senator who made possible the passage of the vicious Wall Street currency bill But only those acquainted with the truth can conceive the press ure put upon the men who succumbed sufficiently to aid in working a wrong to the whole country The mere fact that Roosevelt and his loyal friends and the leaders of the democracy alike were deluded into the belief that it they did notlielp in the passage of a bill that is a legislative crime they would be guilty of doing h rtnot to a party but to the nation is enough tio show the strength of the influences brought to hear upon those men in Washington There is hurrying and scurrying in Washington now There is surprise and wonderment at the uprisiffg of resent ment in consequence of the passage of the iniquitous currency bill for which republicans land democrats must share the responsibility But in the crisis of last week a few men saw clearly And one of these few men was a blind man pore of Okla homa An evil thing was done at the dic tation of the stock exchange gamblers of New York by grace of the ignorance thIe ties in congress But there was a Horatius to hold th bridge And there Was one to stan Ion either side The Horatius was La FollettS of Wisconsin who is by tern perament a leader of forlorn hopes Though he dragged himself from a sickbed to talk eighteen hours he enjoyed the experience Stone of Missouri atoned for IThenpast sins of practical politics by coming to LaFollettes aid Bu they were only two And it was when both exhausted they were stealing a well earned hour or two of sleep tha blind Gore of Oklahoma rose and spoke I It was not a wise practical thing for him to do If he is to remain a senator he mustbe reelected next March The deliberate sharing of that filibuster in opposition to the leaders of his party was absolutely foolhardy He did it i the face of all political practicality He had not talked long whon the word went into the cloakroom that great speech was being made And soon afterward there was no more thought of yawning and there was a j quorum with no more need for a false counting by Fairbanks to accommodate Wall Street Tht blind man was doin very well in his effort to make his countrymen see JSo Oklahoma spoke hour after hour And those of the men he was fighting who were real men must have looked upon his blind face and honored and admired him He was speaking against time He was making a filibuster Butall the while he was speaking greatly I He did not know whether it was this day or that day or dusk or dawn His e a blind man Butbisother skilled senses surely caught the signs of compelled attention comprehension and ap probation + And so knowing that eyon though blind he had done such a thing as no new senator had done before Gore o Oklahoma delivered his peroration and sank into his seat certain that someone of the half dozen senators pledged- to relieve him would rise and take up the fight where he left off And areyou proud gentlemen of the democracy of the senate that you sat silent in your seats while the under standing of your cowardice drifted back of the darkness of the eyes of Gore of OklahomaAnd you think gentlemen of the majority that the men of this country who cast the votes and do the work will be more kindly disposed toward the followers of an Aldrich and a Fair banks because they gagged Heyburn the western Republican at the moment he rose to stop the trick of your steal ing away the work that a blind man had wrpught Of course the law is the law But there will come a day of reckoning for the makers of some laws Now it may be a mere coincidence t though we thip h it consequence But when Gore of Oklahoma went away from the cheat that he was a landhe went to a noted oculist in Washing ton wljo had told Gore months ago that the knife might make him able to see Gore laughed at the idea then He had been blinds long that he did not feel that he needed any eyes except those of his wife But now he is in the dark room of a Washington hospital We are inclined to think that he is actuated by the wish to see just what an Aldrich or a Fairbanks or the demo crats who desert dhim look like The Ndrth American watches the happening s everywhere So Gore of Oklahoma 15 no novelty We heard a year ago and told our readers then of the freakish thing that the newest state was about to do A boy blind frpm his fifteenth year talked day afIter day to mass meetings and the people who heard him to send him to the senate of the United StatesI To us in the calm conservative sedate east it seemed a circus sort of thing for blind man to mount tbeI stump and tell his fellowcitizens how a woman had come into his life and ewer after had been his eyes The election of Gore and the growth of Oklahoma we looked upon merely as queer but inconsiderable phases of national development All was freakish and Uncouth But now in candor le hbesaid that the blind westerner has opened our eyes Whether he comes from the dark room lof the hospital seeing the green of things growing and the gold of the sunlight matters not so far as his life work is concerned He may still rest in the blackness to which he is accustomed with that one little woman eyes his sole link with the thought o the world None the less will this ma haye done his work in a world made up of Neitherchildrenflor gods But men in a world of men eYees once once was n dhe felt himself safewhen heaven knows he should have felt safea sen ator among senators in his helplessness and his greatness Surely that was the one time when his wife did not feel that she was needed It is not a pretty picture to keep in memory that our elder states weektas blind or seeing matters not The bond of manhood holds taut through all times tand all peoples Over the mountains and the rivers and the plains the mes sage of the east goes to Oklahoma uSend back this blind man to th seriate America needs Americans Praise God Weve seen a man this day nHigh Priced Land Harrpdsburg Herald We boast of the puce when blue grass land sells at 150 per acre but the price at which lands are sold in the Grand River Valley of Colorado makes our boast look like thirty cents Improved orchard lands of red sand soil in that section sells for 750 to 1200 per acre but when it is taken into consideration that this land produces fruit that sells through the Fruit Association of that state and realizes from SOO to 1400 per acre each season the seemingly high price- of the land is comparatively cheaper Before the formation of the Association several years ago the railroads an eastern speculators reaped the greater

No 140 Issued bfc the f9rest Bervice of the department of agricul ture contains an mJrY ot the progress InteresItlOsu several European strik Ving comparison between results ob tained under a strict systeu of sclem- tiflc forestry and those pos sible under1 a careless and slipshod netod such as is at present generally followed in the United States The report makes plain that In all the European countries where any serious attemp has been made at systematic forestry the yield per acre has increased materially in a period of years The meWpd of man r a em ent calls fora sustained yield Icjthat Is no more wood Is cit than the forest produces In Prussia the forest yield per acre was twenty cubic feet In 1865 twentyfour ubic eet in 1890 fiftytwo cubic feet in 1895 and in 190- 5sixtyfive cubic feet During this pe nod the percentage of saw timber rose from r9 to 5i per cent which shows that there was not jonly an 15 crease In quantity but a parked in crease in quality In Saxony under axnualproduction Iblc feet per acre In Switzerland sys tematic forestry has beeii practiced since 1680 the most profitaI4le tracts yielding on an average a clear annual profit of 12 per acre In nIarked con trast to the results above noted is the condition of forestry in the United States Instead of curtailing the cut of IIIn ber to make It correspond with thet cuttingihreeest areas are producing fe spent on our national forests last year 93 mills per acre while the revenue froth them was less than seyeneightbi of a mill per acre In this as well tlsin most European countries one of the flu factors leading to an elective in terest in the project of has been the enormous losses sustained tpin floods as a direct result of strip ping the timber from the watersheds of the more important streams Not t tmtil recently has tills feature been given due emphasis in this country but it Is at present a powerful incen tive to a forestry reformation UNIFORM APPLE PAKINGTa The Porter bill which the past winter by a York leg islator land will be presented for pas sage at the next session of congress provides for a uniform grading of aps pIes packed for domestic qnd foreign consumption As things stand at present there is a wide variation in the grading of apples different localities and In differenttseasons In the same locality withj the result that little reliance can placed on maybearapple growers and shippers1 have ben efited by a law requirlnjg uniform grading of apple stocks csjlth the result that on the London markets where much of the Canadian fruit Is retailed It brings 2 shilliigs a bar rel more than New York pjack because of a certainty that the grading Is uni form The law referred to may work ome hardship on the bar ess or dis honest packer but it will without question be a boon to those who are reliable and conscientious and be welcomed by commission mem who In a way axeat present working at a great j disad aI tagef S Ifl viewolth

congregate On this account they should be located at spine distance from the house This may mean carrying the slops somewhat farther but ftwill also mean fewer flies in the house The need of cultivation is especially apparent in hot spells after heavy rains when a baking of the surface of the ground prevents a proper clr dilation of air through the soil and a proper movement of moisture from the subsoil Provided the top two or three1- inches of soil are kept stirred and mellow it serves as a sort of blanket Which keeps the ground from over heating and becoming too crusty While the

while the poor est individual ha tile herd gave but 2788 pounds OB milk worth but 4104 With a group of dairy cows at the Michigan station there was a variation In net return for the year from the

the local creameryi and keeping an approximate tecord oj the milk yield of each cow from month tQ month durin her pe tlod of hctation Such findings would not be valuable as scientific data but they

in sea ons when it occupies the land entirely the first cutting for hay is given precedence over the second which is sometimes saved for seed The common white market or navy bean has risen in value the past few years until it now brings a good price and gives a good return to the raiser One of the advantages of bean cul ture aside from the money return Is that the land which grows them gains

agricultural journals and with each package of the article are directions for its proper use With tInndimilk most any method would seem to be worth trying to keep the pest in check IfOne of the greatest drawbacks to the making ofa sweet and first class butter product In the average cream ery Is an unsatisfactory condition of cream the direct result of an insufficient cleansing and scalding

among mortals but so far as is known one young man In Milwaukee is the only exponent of Sherlock Holmes in the shade world r suiIntendentagency of Milwaukee He was retained by a psychical research society to serve as an investigator of spiritualistic and mediumistic matters Just as the agencys genrtlirnen are em ployed to unearth and search out cases of ordinary dishonesty so this super intendent was retained to run to earth 1sionaldo the other miracles which anyone can witness at innumerable seances On the occasion of a recet study near Chicago of the alleged interpreta tions of a celebrated medium whos mysterious case has been under the observation of men like Prof William James and Sir Oliver Lodge for many years past this superintendent was found to be thoroughly enthusiastic He saidIt because I believe that such phenomena do occasionally occur that I am anxious to expose the frauds Only by so doing can we hope to reach the genuine phenomena The proportion of fraudulent to authentic I have tried to indicate in my reports the larger part of which is given up to the former c1assSThis detective has exposed lm9 numberless devices of mediums stI A Ghost Detected which materialization of spirits la purposed to be accomplished He has discovered the cleverest imaginable seitIplayingage nce as ply contains a music box to do the v work A ghost whom this superlntendent once detected proved to be a young man entirely covered by black tights except his right arm which was bare half way between the elbow and shoulder and was powdered with pul verized luminous paint With his face masked in black this phantoms I luminous arch seemed to float in space while it wrote spirit messages thrust them Into the pockets of sitters played a guitar and performed other miracles which appeared real to the credulous The sleuth has frequently been a witness bf the phenomenavof gradual materializing and dematerializing on the floor in front of a cordon of sit ters ITo the Audience it looks abso lutely astonishing to see a small ball of light projected before them grow gradually Into cloud and Increase In size until a phoiphdrescent spirit like a woman wavers before their very faces and eyes But trick underlies the whole per formances The human confederate who accomplishes the illusion removes allher clothing draws on a long black chemise which reaches her shoe tops puts on a pair of white stockings and white slippers Her head Is covered with a black mask She puts a lumin ous robe into a black bag and then slips down Ia ladder into a carefully prepared cabinet By crawling under the curtains of the cabinet she exposes on the floor a little portion of the robe doubled up to form a Ipminqus ball Out of the bag the glowing robe is shaken gradu ally producing the effect of a swelling cloud The woman then gets on her knees pulls the robe up over her face and throws off the black mask The figure rises gradually until it appears the full size of a woman The robe is next adjusted and by a slight noise a signal is given to have a little light turned on STATE FAIR PROGRAM Special Prizes SuperTntenoents of Departments LThe very handsome sum of
