WHAT MR. SPRINGER WOULD DO
FOR THE FARMER.
Some one pointed out to Mr.
Springer that we collected $6,500,000
of revenue last year from wool
which his bill proposes to admit
free, and that his scaling down of
duties on other things involved a
further reduction of revenue, on
la9t year's importation as a basis,
of $19,500,CC0 more. He was re
minded that the government needed
every cent collected under existing
laws for legitimate expenditure and
asked how the loss of revenue fore
shadowed in his free wool bill was
to be made up. "O, there will be no
loss of revenue," he in effect replied.
"The lower duties on woolens and
worsteds will invite larger importa
tions, so that just as much revenue
will result from the lower rates as
was last year obtained from the
Do the American people realize
the signification of that brief state
Last year we imported 43,000,000
dollar's worth of wool manufac
tures. At the decreased rates fixed
in the Springer bill they average
about 36 per cent on last years s
imports as a basis we should have
to import 115,000,000 dollar's worth,
an increase of 72,C00,CC0 dollars
over 1891, in order to make up the
$26,000,000 deficiency in "revenue.
This, remember is what Mr.
Springer himself says .would take
What effect would this increase
in imported goods have on domes
First, as to the farmer: The $72,-
000,000, increase in manufactured
wool would . contain 216,000,000,
pounds of raw wool, which would
come in to take the place of 62,000,
000 dollars worth of goods now
made in this country of domestic
wool, and to reduce the demand tor
the product of our own sheep
growers by 216,000,000 pounds.
But this is not all. Since Mr.
Springer admits that a mere de
crease in duties will increase im
ports so enormously, certainly he
cannot deny that his removing the
whole duty from raw wool will
tend to increase imports of it also.
At the very least we should import
no less ot foreign raw wool than
was imported last year, when the
amount was 119,000,000 pounds.
Of this 85,000,000 pounds were car
pet wool which we should have to
import any way, since it is not
and, as free traders, contend, can
not be successfully produced here.
We consume, at a liberal esti
mate, 600,000,000 pounds of raw
wool in the United States.. We can
safely assume that the amount
would not go above that figure the
first year of Mr. Springer's policy if
it should -be inaugurated by the
congress. -Now, let us see where
Ihe farmer would come out:

tures of wol:

Here would be 167,000,000 pounds
of American farmers' wool left on
their hands after the home market
had been fully supplied.
What would they do with it?
There is but one answer. They
must sell it for what it would bring
low enough to undersell the
cheapest wool in the world. The
existence of such and enormous
surplus, over half of the whole
domestic product, would send .the
market so low that farmers would
again slaughter their flocks for
tallow. Never again would good
times return for our sheep owners
while the free wool policy pre
vailed. Even when domestic prod
uction had fallen the necessary
158,000,000 pounds, the pressure of
cheap Australian, African and
Argentine wool upon the market
would continually tend to send
prices even lower and lower till
American sheep raising was-con
fined to the semi-desert plains of
the west. There it might be pos
sible for some wool to be grown,
but our main dependence must be
upon foreign wools. This is the
inevitable logic of Mr. Springer's
admission, and it would be well for
American farmers to understand
what it means to them Economist

This remedy also counteracts any

4 TAKE YOUR CHOICE.
An KdrIUIi riiyrtlH.vji Snys Women Mast
.Marry or Take a I'rofeaaiou.
Dr. Arabella Kenealy, a noted phy
sician of London, has, from her special
practical medical experience among
women tied need the theory that wo
men must make a choice between pro
fessional and married life. She says:
women should not attempt to carry on
a profession after marriage. I mean
the women of the upper and middle
classes who go into the professions. It
is not necessary that they should be
bread winners; that duty should de
volve upon the husband, and I am con
fident that the rising generation
would be healthier and stronger in
every way if the mbthers would exert
themselves less. I look anxiously at
every baby that comes under my;b
servation in the hdpe that I shall find
some infprovement in the type, some
increase in stamina, compared with
the generation that has preceded -it;
but instead of this there is only steady
deterioration observable. This deteri
oration is particularly noticeable
among the children of very active
mothers. The cleverest and most
highly educated women who take the
most active part in public affairs, have
the most weakly and puny children.
Another thing, women are going in
to too active forms of exercise. When
a young married woman tells me that
she is captain of a cricket eleven or a
football team, I can only say I am per
fectly aghast. Women must place
before themselves the alternative, te
earn their living, to exercise their
faculties, and to gratify their ambitions
in a professional career or to become
good wives and mothers, and if they
choose the domestic life they must
recognize that they must sacrince their
personal happiness and ambition in
the future happiness and success of
their childre n.
Germany Not Woman's Country.
"Germany is a man's country," said
a titled German lady. "Men will die
for their sweethearts, but their wives
must live for them. If you marry a
poor man he expects you to blacken
his boots. If you wed a rich man he
expects you to do the same mentally.
A German srirl is well educated in
books, needlework, and housekeeping.
She seems bright enough until she
settles down into a 'hausmutter,' with
few ideas beyond her kitchen and
nursery, and no topics of conversation
except the iniquity of her servants and
the extravagance of her neighbors.
The result is that the women are in
ferior to the men, and the men argu
mentative, self-opinionated, and - ego
tistical. And they all believe, from
the Kaiser down, that women were
created simply to cater to their fancies
and bring more men into the world
for other women to wait upon, uur
actors are always better than our ac
tresses, our tenors and baritones out
shine our sopranos and contraltos, even
our men ballet dancers are more agile
than their short-skirted colleagues, and
in the great land of scholars, and philo
sophers, and writers there are lewer
women of note in educational or liter
ary standing than in any of the other

The Bigst Bowlders.
Accepting reported measurements.
the largest erratic block or bowlder as
d . . . . . . . , ,
yet recognized in the united states,
and probably in the world, is in the
town of Madison. N. 11., and, ac
cording to Prof. Crosby of the Boston
Institute of Technology, has the fol
lowing maximum dimensions: Length,
89 feet; width, in excess of 45 feet;
height. 30 to 37 feet; contents, 90,000
cubic feet, and probable weight, 15,
800,000 pounds, or 7,650 tons. Next
to this in size is undoubtedly the great
rock in the town of Montville, New
London county, Conn., generally
known by its Indian designation as
"Sheegan." and also as "Monegan." In
the opinion of some this rock is an
isolated granite protuberance, and not
a true "erratic" or bowlder, but recent
examinations have seemed to com-
f letely negative the first supposition,
ts approximate maximum dimensions
are: Length, 75 feet; width, 58 feet;
height, 60 feet; contents 70,000 cubic
feet; weight 6,000 tons. If allowance
be made for an immense fragment
which has fallen from its northeast
side, the dimensions and ' cubic con
tents of "Sheegan" would approximate
more closely to those of the Madison
bowlder. One point that goes far
toward substantiating the claim on be
half of the "Sheegan" rock that it is a
true bowlder is the number of un
doubted bowlders of an immense size
and of the same granite which exists
in comparative proximity.
Leprosy in Spain.
Leprosr is increasing at an alarming
rate in Spain. From Alcanta it is re
ported that several villages are afflict
ed with the terrible malady. In Beni
dorm there are eight families every
member of which is a leper. At Gata
the number of lepers is so great that a
hospital to be built for them, and at
other points the plague is increasing in
a frightful manner and the doctors are
unable to cope with it.
