small percentage of farmers possess a convenient stor age We have stored ice for about fif teen years Five years ago the ice house was remodeled and the follow ing is a description of the prsent plan writes a correspondent of Rural New Yorker It is 12x14 feet and 12 feet high on a twofoot stone foundation The studding is oak 2x8 inches sheathed on both sides and filled between with sawdust From the stud ding a twoinch furring projects out with the siding on this making an air PractlcaljLlcehousp space sufficiently large that the sides of the building are kept from becoming warm by the cool current which passes from the ground up and into the ice chamber A 12xl8 inch blind at each gable permits a free circula tion of air and is in my estimation better than a cupola as there is more of a draft over the ice As is shown in the cut there are double doors four feet wide extending from the foundation to the eaves A 4x4In6h scantling put in the peak for attaching a double pulley facilitates the handling of the Ice the man In the wagon sets the tongs in a cake and another man in the doorway seizes it with his tongs as it is drawn up in this way only three men are necessary at the build

to see you Have a chair Do you know Im anxious to learn how advertising is going to fix those order houses Pardon me but I do not like expression The order house has as much to do business as Brown your com petitor across the street You cannot hope t6 have it extermi nated by law or other unfair means The only way to solve this problem is to meet prices You can do this on a cash basis and that is the only sensible way to sell Be so busy telling the public about your store your goods and your prices that the order do not appear trouble you in the least Quote the order houses prices beside yours to show that you mean business Do not attack their integrity are not all frauds as some merchants would represent them to be But people be loyal to their home merchants Very true but this argument been abused Stories of the patron who got cheated of dollar that did so much in the community before it was sent away the theory of paying taxes etc are all so or lacking in logic as to Abe an injury to our cause If you are to pull customers the catalogue houses it will be with proof that you sell equally low not by satire or abuse They are be won not forced Then too many merchants who are too high or are inexperienced and not in the least fitted for their business dealers who gossip unfriendly and unaccommo dating or who cheat or mistreat their patrons all claim the support of community on the loyalty to home industries plea To do so is seek not business Even charity covers no such sins Now honestly do you expect patronage merely beaus you are a in this town What grounds then should I take in asking patronage Put it thus You buy where you can buy cheapest I will do the Remember when making comparisons with cata logue pricesu for transportation the delay the and of ordering and can you the equally low considering these advantages buy of ineV because it will help buildup the town That is all I ask To what growthIYes their whole existence is due to it They cannot

Who Will Not Work Fill Bread Lines of Greater New York York Robert W Hebberd commissioner of charities of New York takes the stand with Special Agent Powderly of the United States department of immigration that a ma jority of the metf In the bread lines of the city are professional tramps un deserving of aid He declared before the Y M C A the tramp and vagrant are a menace to civilization and urged stringent to regulate them He indorsed the for the establishment of colonies by the state where such men can be put to work A conservative estimate of the number of unemployed in New York city today he saiduis 100000 Perhaps 80000 of these are union men temporarily out of work They gener ally have mOney saved to tide them over the hard times For that reason the men who frequent the bread line and the municipal lodging houses are not fair samples of the unemployed A farm colony for vagrants has been tried In Germany and Switzerland with great success and we should have the power

duck was a pet of her little sister and when father said the time had arrived for It to die the little girl wept She was so fond of watching the duck dive in the pond Father however was de termined and the duck was duly executed little Nellie averred she would not eat a morsel of that sacred duck so father said All right take it over to now married lived close by Nellie took the duck over to her sister and sister cooked it When she and her husband sat down to eat Mrs Heinze felt something crunching in her teeth It was the diamond ring It had been picked up by the duck in one of its dives and

State Express and established a speed record at the rate of 112 miles an hour Among the exhibits in the Transporta tion building at the worlds fair in ChI- cago It probably attracted the greatest attention not only because of the speed records which it had established but because of its size its 6foot driving wheels being at that time the largest ever used After a year of service it was sent to the Chicago ex position with Its original gold silver and nickel trimmings and mahogany woodworkToday all this glory has departed The once famous but now almost is still in service but without its fancy trimmings It Is hauling a combination milk and pas senger train In the northern part of the state on a short run Even Its driving wheels once the cause of wonder because their size have been supplanted with smaller ones and the former speed king Is merely a railroad plug A few years more will see It doing service on a branch this best known of the worlds locomotives has its former driver

which it demands of Congress the ap xteointment of a permanent tariff commission which shall collect and study lacts connected with the tariff work rior the preservation of the home market and the development of for eign trade arrange for reciprocity F agreements based on maximum and minimum schedules and cooperate in adjusting tariff schedules equit 1iDly and in fixing ratesof duty within the maximum and minimum rates CqnIto Its notice by the commission That onticli good can be accomplished in this way we do not doubt Nor do- Vei think that the arguments ad r Tranced in support of this program aTe without weight On the contrary ihey are sound reasons liWhat Congress will think of the r scheme is another question Our friends realize that it will require a j good deal of pressure to bring a fut its adoption So they propose to or f ganize for the campaign A committee consisting of one hundred men m whiclv not less than two shall be appointed from each State in the Union is to be appointed for the pur pose of carrying on the w rk This committee is to be organized in the most effective way It willof course ilo what it can to impress its views Sn Congress In the mean time Con gress is urged to enact at the special session shortly to meet a revised tariff as1 completely and accurately adjusted st present conditions and therefore as stable as is possible at this time The mostencouraging thing about the tariff commission congress is its undoubted earnestness We believe that it represents public opinion that It speaks for a great majority of the people There Isa demand for a greatly lower tariff It may be that Congress will recognize this andJ J ikatit will listen with some respect tt the arguments Of the cjdmmjttee ene hundred One thing is certainr and 11ointwa made bybne of tbeseakersthnt unless we soon get pHial relief the people will sooner or later demand entire relief I3iat as protection must be abated e somewhat or it will disappear alto gether That is a iesuUvlnch we honid view jvith much equanimity But the argument one tht ought to io appeal even to those of the stand jMitters who are able to see Any dis einto the future One Aether sugi I geetion must be made The tieela br 2 commission does not grow outof mxj oonipkzity of the tariitas such j Ibot pither out of the complex bus iness conditions connected with it We have built up in this country not a system of taxation but a sys tern of carrying on business which is a pajtthe Government itself Any man at sell fit for his position would beabletodraIta law that would raise allfthe money we needed to carry on the Government But that is not eflough JVe must also lave a law which shaliafford so much protection to this industry and so much to the other a law which shall main tain the home market and at the same time encourage foreign trade etc These questions have nothing to do with the problem of taxation But we have mixed the two things up to such a degree tliat we are forced to admit that Congress is not competent to deal with the question We have created a system which we can not control can not even change by the ordinary processes of legisla tion The result is thaq most of our people look on a tax law asof necessity ia very complicated thing It is complicated only because we have put in it things that do not belong in if So we have to appeal to experts to tell us not how to levy taxes but how to care for industiicsthat think they are dependent on taxes We hope that much good may come of the tariff commission congress Any movement should be encourag d that tends to give relief froin the present intolerable conditions BLOODHOUNDS TRAIL THIEF TO THE l E R R TRACKx The bloodhounds belonging to- Captain Mullikin which were taken to Rose Fork a station on the Lex

Intellect Cuts Down Average I am beginning to think writes a veteran fan who has been watching bigleague garnet for some 25 years thatthe days of real batsmen have al most departed Fellows like Wagner and Lajoie are the last survivors of the real batsmen and when they go who is going to take their places I dont see any 350 hitters coming up among the young generationIThe batsmen of 20 years ago were as a rule larger men bulkier and heavier in every way than most of the players of today Look at Capt Anson still conspicuous round Chi cago for a fair sample of the tribe Men like Anson Connor Brouthers Orr et al monsters of size and brawnused to go up there and knock the lid off the ball and they had none of the best of It either when it came to the statutes governing pitcher and batsman They had no foul tips to bother them but on the other hand a click foul nailed by the catcher was an out the pitcher was a shorter dis tance away and from that short range bigpitchers simply blazed the ball across with bullet speed Some theorists contend that the smaller lighter players of today are more agile and make up with their speed for their lack of slugging power Maybe but the baserunning records seem to show that the little men of to day are not as speedy as the elephants of long ago One of the biggest men who ever played the game Bill Lange was also a wonderful baserunner Harry Stovey was a big man So was Mike Kelly Most of the great base thieves were not little fellows but giants and Hans Wagner the best miniatureWagner Is king of modern players as batsman and runnerand Wagner is a type of what the old sluggers used to beA of the old critics are just wak ing up to one point of the game that many clubs are playing too much sys tem ball The game has become so machinelike nowadays that a mana ger has feeen known to fine a batter who when ordered to bunt drove out a hit and won a game As a genuine fact the manager who has speed enough in his thinkworks to stop the dull grind of machine play and mix things up is the fellow who will get the hostiles goats The Baltimores did things like that and so do the Cubs though not quite so frequently One of the foollshest things of the system is the take two order given when a pitcher has heaved a couple of balls wide of the plate The slab man calmly takes aim and tossed them over as gently as a mouseand of course gets two called strikes Once in a great great while his control so wabbly that the batter walks bu not often for the motionless batsman as a rule doing an imitation of statueand the certainty that the ball wont be hit are enough to insure a ball right over from any man but a wild gorilla The manager who tells a batter to take two with Cy Youn or Brown working is a candidate fo the foolhousebut lots of them on doing it just that way should have orders to lean against any slow tossed ball and perforate it an after some live manager brings thi gP0 a show once more NEW WHITE SOX

cdndition of our roads and the fact that we lire nofc building them according to law greatly assist the hard roads advocates urn their ar guments for hard roads writes an Ill nol correspondent of the Prairie FarmerSchool children and other footmen are daily trespassing by going through the fields because there are no walks provided Where the roads are 60 feet wide no more provision is made for a walk than where they are reduced to 40 feet and the whole width isused up with the grades and ditches We cant get toa neighbor when it is muddy without going through barb- wires or hedges and yet some people wonder why some of our youngsters are so anxious to get to town These conditions prohibit women on foot from using the roads whereas if they were built according to law they could wheel their baby carriages to their neIghbors homes with satisfac tion even when the wagon track is muddy If this one condition were remedied the fine made sufficient and enough wardens provided to protect the walks from injury it would be a great move ment toward improving our roads- I think all of the grades walks and the boundaries of the roads should be determined by competent engineers whose duty it shall be to mark the same with suitable stones wherever it is necessary The benefit and satisfaction derived from such improvements would greatly overbalace the small Increase of our taxes in the country Should our lawmakers bring this subject before the legislature they would certainly be so well pleased with rOD1toeA NOTABLE VICTORy Farmers of Wisconsin Help Secure Law for Building of Good Roads A notable victory was won in Wis consin largely by farmers at the election in November It was the adop tion of the amendment to the state constitution authorizing state aid for the building df roads The state constitution forbade the legislature to appropriate any money for internal im provements but this stateaid amend ment went through by a majority of wroughtinthe Hoards Dairyman as soon as they came to see the following facts 1 That up to the present time farm property has had to bear all the expense of making country roads 2 That it is nothing more than fair that city village and all other property in the state should bear a just share of the expense of making roadstwe never will have good ourapresent state The farmers saw the point and rose to the occasion HILLSIDEg WashrRoadbedn adasPlan of Hillside Road able A gutter and drainage ditch on the lower side with a slight embank ment will make a highway almost as safe as if built on level ground MORE ABOUT ALFALFA The value of alfalfa is seen in some such facts as the following An acre in hay brings 25 to 35 a year according to yield for feeding purpose There is always a good market for alfalfa hay which yields more than double that of timothy Hogs cows and sheep are fond of al falfa grazing and pastures and they thrive greatly on it Land that will grow alfalfa luxuriantly is worth double that of land that will grow only timothy hay Four times cutting a year of alfalfa hay which is usual on good land means five to seven tons per acre Alfalfa is not only great for livestock feeding but as a legume gath ers nitrogen from the air and greatly enriches the soil f Great is alfalfa A Good Argument One of the best arguments In favor of purebred dairy stock is the fact that practically every Inquirer wants registered bulls or registered cows Nq one Is advertising for grades or the product of scrub bulls The demand for animals of good dairy breeding cannot be satisfied The breeding of dairy stock offers a most excellent op portunity for the young man who de- sireS to become a breeder One beauty of breeding dairy stock is that the sale of butterfat alone pays expenses and still yields a nice profit
