THE CONGER LARD BILL AND THE
PADDOCK PUSE'FOOD BILL
Epxtor Aluaxce: : "

Nebraska Farmer wu fix or seren col
tunu devoted to the compound lard
question especially favoring the Fad
dock pare food bill and making an at
tack on the Conger lard bill. In the
article referred to were tome gross mis
atatemwits of fact as affecting oar Iowa

which has been ignored by the Nebraska

at Lincoln daring the Alliance meeting,
I was told that the paper had not bad
time to examine the merits of the bills

of baring loaned its columns to the
adulterators in an attempt to mislead
the farmers of Nebraska in a matter
which so largely affects their i n teres s:

Editor Xebraska Farmer, Lincoln, Xeb.
Deab Sut: I note that fire columns of
your ipaoe in your issue of Not. 20th Is
devotsl to an attack on the Conger lard
bill, nnier guise of support of the Pad
dock pure food bill.
The first three columns, for the most
part, made op of petitions and circulars
freely circulated by a hired attorney,
ostensibly of the cattle growers' asiocia
tion, but really of the element opposed
' to the exposure of the frauds now per
petrated on the farmer under the guise
of lard compound.
The petitions and resolutions purport
ing to originate in the Farmers' Mutual
BcneSt Association of Illinois, were in
troduced into that body by a hired lob
byist of the combine which is aiming to
defeat tie Conner lard bill, and slipped
through that body at its recent meeting
without discussion or debate, and lead
Ing o Ulcers of that association havo ex
pressed to me personally their regret
that the association inadvertently si
lowed them to pats any resolutions so
damaging to their interests as northern
I was present at the recent meeting of
the National Farmers' Mutual Benefit
Association, to which the association is
subservient, and yon will notice that
after the matter waa discussed, no such
resolutions were passed, although the
combination bad an agent there freely
distributing these identical circulars
The same lobbyist who was in Wash
ington, I understand, serving this same
interest this last winter, told m ner-
aonallythat be had secured thesigna-l
turn of ten thousand farmers at the
fit. Louis fair. He was also present at
the late meeting of the Farmers' Alli
ance la Iowa, and it is to his singular
report of the doings of that convention,
as stated in the last two columns of your
last Issue, that I wish to call your atten
tion. He was given the privilege of
the lobby to distribute his circulars. On
the second day the attention of the asso
ciation was called to their nature, and
the lard question was at once taken up
and discussed. After this he secured no
more petitioners, although he endeav
ored to purchase them. He was given
a hearing before the committee on reso
lutions, which reported favorbly on the
Conger lard bill; and the report was
adopted without a dissenting vote.
There was no meeting of the cattle
interests in the convention, nor was
was there any petition signed or for
warded to tho senate, so far as we have
been able Jto ascertain, except possibly a
petition drawn by himself and his fellow
lobbyist, who pretends to be a repre
sentative of the Post Dispatch, but who
had no other business so far as we could
see, except in securing signatures to
their petitions. It will be noticed that
at the close of this so-called petition to
the United States senate the "under
signed delegates" represent themselves
as members of the Farmers' Alliance
and Industrial Union of the state of
Iowa, and present at a meeting in the
state capitol at the city of Des Moines.
There is no such organization as the
Farmers' Alliance and Iudustrial Union
in the state of Iowa. There was, there
fore, no meeting of that organization in
the city of Des Moines, or any other
place in the state on Nov. 1st, or any
You will therefore see that you have
been most egregiously imposed upon by
a paid attorney, who openly boasted at
Des Moines that he had never failed to
secure the support of any farmers' or
ganization; to his measures, and was
greatly abashed and surprised to have
the hog raisers and cattle' growers of
Iowa give him such a stinging reproof.
It cannot, however, have escaped your
attention that the action of the Farmers'
Benefit Association of Illinois, smuggled
through by this hired attorney of the
adulteraters of the lard grown by the
western farmers, are printed as a paid
advertisement in the patent insidesof
many of the county newspapers.
All these facte, which I have verified
by personal examination, show conclus
ively that there is large money being
used by the four firms manufacturing
i. WUMWtMVM. n uu
the growers of cotton seed oil and the
uou lULcicsis, io ueieari mis dm, wtuco
has already passed the house, and which
now awaits only the action of the senate.
While not disposed to antagonize the
Paddock pure food bill, when standing
upon its own merits and not being used
as a club to prevent practical legislation,
allow mo to call attention to its utter
inadequacy to meet the wants of the
f It dote not pro 'ess to deal with
compound lard except in the relations
such as grow out of the interstate traffic.
The United States has no police powers.
and necessarily 'must deal with food
adulterations either under the provision
of the section of the constitution of the
United States controlled by the inter
state commerce law, or else under the
revenue laws. The Conger lard bill
proposes to place lard compound under
the revenue laws of the United States,
and in'the same category with oleomar
garine. The Paddock food bill deals
with it solely as a matter of interstate
commerce, Hence can oniy anect tne
matter of shipment and not of sale.
You will see at once how easily its
provisions can be violated.
There is nothing in the bill to prevent
lard compound for consumption in Ne
braka being made at Omaha; in Iowa,
at Des Moines; in Illinois, at Chicago.
To be effective it must be supple
mented by the tews under the police
regulations of forty -three states and ter
ritories.: . -
In my Judgment the Interests of the
farmers absolutely require the enact
tnent of the Conger lard bill. The Pad
dock pure food bill can do no barm only
in so far as it cumbers the statute books,
but it is also very likely to prove a dead
letter if enacted. " '

Editor Alliance Dear Sir: Will
the fool editors of the Bse and Journal
never acquire a little sense? If they
had common horse sense and knew the
feeling pK the "common people," they
would surely comprehend the fact that
the people have become so imbued with
the belief that they are incapable of an
honest thought or unselfish act (to judge
tnem by their anti-election lying, etc)
that whatever they may advocate is
looked upon with suspicion. And
those who, like yourself,' have been
most denounced through their Satanic
so-called newspapers, are gaining
friends by the hundreds everywhere.

F. W. Dawley before a recent New
York farmers1 Institute in speaking
on this subject said: The Importance
of any branch of farming or any other
ma us try must be judged by the profit
in it. Our poultry occupies or may
occupy a front rank in' this respect.
It amounts to more in dollars and
cents than the value of the corn crop,
and it equals that of dressed beef, la
the year 1885 there were imported into
the Uoited States 10,098.450 dozens ol
eggs, at a cost of 12,500,000, or about
Id cents a dozen. It has been proved
that a dozen etrtt can hw rirnH iufA fn
7 cents, and less than this sum is paid
io tne producer or tnose which are
imported- This 8 centa ai hetwmn
the foreign producer and the consumer
In this country, is equal to about f 900, -CJ0.
The new tariff has a duty of 6
cents on a dozen for imported eggs.
This really givos the American farmer
an advantage of 10 cents a dozen over
the foreigner. The foreign producer
gets only 10 cents a dozen, and the
coosumer hera must nuv'th diitv.
thus forcing the producer abroad to
toko a very low price for his eggs to
compete with us. It took concerted
action to secure this legislation, but
the poultry men are thoroughly .or
ganized and worked together.
'Poultry should be divided into

The Frontableaet of Sheep.
First There is much less capital
required than in any other branch of
stock keeping. It is not necessary
that sheep should be pure bred; the
best of our common sheep are good
enough, and such can be got at a
reasonable figure, and with proper
management and the use of welt bred
sires there need be no fear of the
result .- ,. -
Second. Sheep require the least
Attention of any kind of stock and re
quire less expensive housing in winter, i
A building that protects them from
storms in winter is all that is neces
sary, while in the summer they will
thrive on comparatively scant pasture.
They will also pick their living late
in autumn and can be turned out much
earlier in the sprlug than any other
kind of stock.
Third They are the best scavengers
the farmer can have, eating much that
would otherwise go to waste, also
spreading their droppings more evenly
on the poorest spots, thus helping to
renovate the worn out lands. -
Fourth Their freedom from disease
is also a strong point in their favor.
iiiith Ihey give the farmer two
crops per year a crop of lambs and a
crop of wool. An ordinary ewe. fairly
fed and looked after, will give from
seven to eight pounds of wool each
year; this at the current price Of 20
cents per pound, will give a return of
about 1 1.50 for each sheep. A fairly
well managed flock of ewes will pro
duce from l to If lambs per ewe, and
I have known flocks to give as many
as two lambs per ewe. These lambs,
with fair attention, will bo worth on
November 1 (taking the prices of the
last few years as a basis) $5 per hed.
This, with the wool, mnkes an annual
return of about (9 per ewe. Western
Making; the Gardrn Pay.
Because it. is the richest, the best
prepared and the best cultivated p:irt
of the farm, the garden should return
the best profit Whether it does or
not largely depends upon the manage
ment Whiio there is leisure during
tha winter, is a good time to look this
matter up and arrange as far as possi
ble to plan to the best advantage. ' In
order to do this to The best advantage,
secure a good work like How to Make

. Liquid Smoke.
It no longer absolutely necessary
to smoke hams and shoulders of pork
by building slow fires under them for
weeks at a time. The desired flavor
and also the preservative effects of
smoke are scoured by a few applica
tions of pyroligneous acid, or liquid
smoke as it is properly called. I;ub ii

not costly. Unless the farmer counts
bis fuel and time employed in building
fires nothinc. he had better pay a
quarter or half a dollar to the druggist
for the liquid smoke. The latter has
the advantage of never endangering
outbuildings with fires.
Hewing- Oali too Early.
In localities whoro winter lingers
long io the lap of spring it is often
possible to sow oats too early. In the
west oats may be sown as toon as the
.Yost is out of the ground, dragged ia
while the surface is still muddy, and
be all the better for ono or two freez
ings of the surface to loosen the soil
thus compc ted by stirrinsr while wet
But if the freezing and thawing of tho
ground is repeated several times, the
vitality of the germ iu injured, and if
it has started it may be even entirely
aestroyea. xoung oats are not hardy.
and when they first push out from the
seed tne germ may be killed by any
irost mat penetrates an Inch below tho
surface. Excepting this danger, early
sown oats generally do better tbun
those late sown.
The problem what to do with screen
ings that consist almost wholly of weed
seeds grows more difficult until the
best use, that of burning them, is sug
gested. Years ago such screenings
were largely fed to bens, but intelli
gent farmers soon found that fowls
thus fed stopped laying. Besides, if
fed liberally many seeds go into the
manure eitner undigested in wbat is
eaten , or left on the floor or ground.
Modern fanning mills take out of
screenings every atom of grain. The
remainder may be ground, but it is
poor feed even then. Why not make
a sure thing of getting rid of the un
wholesome stuff by burning it
For tho best results ia feeding swine
for profit not a single animal except
tne breeders should be fed over the
winter. Young pigs should bo far
rowed in March and September, or in
warm localities January and June.
The great variety of food available
for feeding pigs in the south make it
possible to produce pork at less than 3
cents per pound. Where a farm has
sufficient range of chesnut and oak
land for the pigs, pork has been grown
for half this cost -
When tho young pigs have black
teeth their digestion is imperfect , A
plentiful supply of charcoal, or char
red wood or wood ashes, or both to
gether, is an un fating remedy. It also
prevents the common loss of power
over the hind limbs, which is a result
of Indigestion. ,

Little catch-alls for small trinkets

Four parts of rain water to one part
of molasses, with some cider vinegar
to set It working, will make nice
vinegar to keep cucumber pickles.

all fevers, except when the fever is
connected with lung troubles, as in
such a case it might chill the patient

When one has bought an ordinary
soup bone of beef, the meat may be
cut from the bone, after boiling for

' Yentilation is a provision of nature
too, often abused. Every sleeping
room should h ive its windows open an

clothing laid open to the air, where,
if possible, the sun can shine upon

Fully one-half the cases of poison

A sand-bag, with a plush cover, is
a most useful present to any one who
drives much in wintry weather. A
canvas-bag contains tbe sand, which
should not be packed too tight This
may be warmed at any time in the

which is a plush or velvet bag with
