AN EXCEEDINGLY INTERESTING
From an Alliance Sister Who Interests
Herself in all Questions.
Bloomfifld, Neb., Oct. 11, Ml.
Editor Alliakce: I am glad to see
that now and then a sister f-nds courage
to remind your readers that women are
in our ranks, but I believe many really
interested refrain from an exhibition of
their knowledge and hopes of future
justice when the new, more liberal
party of the people shall have gained
possession of the political field, simply
because of the old hoe and cry against
" woman suffrage." I wish the wives of
Alliance rren all over this land would
and could read just this paper ind the
Xoneonormist of Indiana. (Formerly
of Kansas.) Every womanly woman
among them would soon be enlisted in
this great work, to the extent of her
time and opportunity. I am hoping
many silent ones are exerting a home
influence which will tell at the polls in
November. Why may not this same
influence be used against those members
of the late legislature who voted down
the bill granting the franchise to our
sisters of the city where It would bo
their weapon against the liquor power?
Let us not forget that our noses were not
counted when prohibition was "snowed
under" last fall, and when, as a corres
pondent said, " the willol the people was
expressed at the polls." You see the
interpretation of the word people by an
egotistical class Is voters, which leaves
os out. Without the privilege of a
forceful, public expression of our na
tional wants, we appear to have no
rights which man is bound to respect,
except a sort of lordly protection, indi
vidually. I dislike to think that inde
pendents, pledged to such grand princi
ples as those of the Alliance, would
make such manly, efforts to secure the
rights In full which a generous constitu
tion guarantees all its cithtns and then
at the first opportunity deny oppressed
women the entire and complete rights
of citizenship. However it appears to
be a fact; probably because we did not
organize in suflkleut numbers and
march In solid phalanx to the state
house and demand it. I expected of
such men the ready acquiesence to this
measure, broadened to the admission of
our sex in the country districts as well.

The Return of gold.
So gold is coming back from Europe,
is it? Yes, but why did it go? And
why does it return? Let us see. Under
the guidance of the money power acting
through the two old parties, our country
has needlessly become indebted to mon
archial Europe to the extent of hundreds
of millions of dollars, and the interest
on the vast sum is pledged in gold. So
the gold, oub gold, for all the gold
money in this country belongs to the
people, was sent abroad to pay needless
indebtedness to the money lords of the
old world. But as soon as our gold is
paid to, English lords to liquidate in
debtedness, It became the money of
foreigners. Now it returns but how?
It comes for investment by foreign syn
dicates. In this way England is rap
idly acquiring the ownership of our
country Let us put on the brakes and
stop the whole concern. Labor Wave.
The Issuance and Distribution of Money,
The Slate, of Sept 10th. invites discus
sion of the most important question in
American politics, viz: Issuance and
distribution of money. Ia the ou'.set
the Slate ignores the most important
part of our financial system. All na
tions have tied down their people in the
transactions of their commerce to the
use of metal as a medium of exchange.
and through this plan the wealth pro
ducing classes of all nations have en'
joyed less of the frails of their otcn labor
than those who were more fortunately
born and labored not at all. - We pro
pose to discuss this question from the
light and lessons of the past. And we
believe that any system of coinage or
distribution which we may institute will
fail of our object unless we first strike
down the barbaric and foolish plan of
buying high priced metal to print our
law crested medium of exchange upon.
In thirty years interest for the use of
money and gambling in the same, has
builded up the most colossal fortunes
ever known, and left behind on the
shoulders of the producers the most gi
gantic load of debt known to history.
We are struggling to evolve a plan not
only to get from under this load of law
created debt but also to prevent a repe
tition of the same.
As long as gold and silver are used
for money just so long will the people
pay interest for their use. They are the
basis of money gambling audhavbg ex
clusive monetary functions they are
easily cornered and labor forever com
pelled to pay a tribute for its use. These
are facts already established by history;
any it is not necessary to enter into any
lengthy argument in their support. '
The editor says we must be brief, but
this is a big question. Let us then sup
pose that gold and silver are the same
as wheat or corn, simply commodities
for sale to those who want to buy. Now
let me briefly give our position on the
question of distribution. The law should
fix a certain tract or number of acres of
land as a homestead, free from taxation
or execution, then a graduated land tax
on all holdings above this, then that
these homestead holdings be available
as security to government for govern
ment loans and that the laborers lot of
land in the city should be also good for
a government loan. But the State says
in regard to this and the sub-treasury
plan: "No argument has yet been pre
sented, Indeed, no argument could be
presented, which would justify such a
limitation." l will then venture to
tread upon ground yet untrod. We
suppose that it is admitted that ficm the
sou and the toller s labor comes the
wealth of tho world. The wealth which
keeps the Hour mills grinding and gives
employment and wages to those who la
bor but do not till the sol!; which fills the
railroad train and gives wages and em
p'oyment to thousands; and that fur
nishes the material for factories and
wages for tons of thousands thus em
ployed. And then, besides what these farmers
of earth directly consume of iron and
steel and fabrics of the loom, they indi
rectly support the other thousands who
help to make up the errand total of our
eating, wearing and consuming family.
Now then, the prosperity of the
farmer will fix the prosperity
of all other classes. A brief
and fleeting business prosperity can be
enjoyed by sacrificing the producer, in
other words by killing the goose which
lays tin golden eggs, the killer may have
some short-lived and immediate pros
perity but his producer is gone. This is
our present governmental system; for
thirty years we have been killing the
producers of our wealth, the support
of all other industries the farmer. He
has striven against a combination of un
just laws, unjust commercial systems,
ana human greed organized into inhu
man corporations. Slice by slice have
these combinations which enslave labor
and feed on the fanner, taken frot i next
the heart, until tho brink of the abyss is
now readied, moso who have been
fattened would now destroy the empty
forms of a people's government. And
the farmer, staggering with his load of
legal but unjust debt, if salvation comes,
must be the savior. (Jan our friend the
State see nothing in this which would
justify making used and useful soil the
basisot our circulating medium of trade?
All other business and employment is
incidental, the tiller of the toil is the
foundation. Our present systems are
to favor incidental business and ignore
the foundation. Do you want further
proof? Look at the results of a policy
which favors incidental business, who
was it that thirty years ago owned a
large per cent of the wealth of this na
tion, and who that new carries a load of
debt beyond the comprehension of man
in ueu oi the wealth be owned. To
make the foundation of all business and
employment sound and stablo is not in
justice to those who rest upon it.

itions we will reply to next week.

MATTERS TO INTEREST RURAL
About PlowingAbsorbent Power
Of Straw Making the Moat of
It Are Lara Barns Best?
Whether it m best to plow deep or
shallow is not one of the things "no
fellow can find out," for experiment
will generally show wbkb is preferable.
It would seem, on general principles,
that deep plowing, with siibsoiling,
would yield the best results in every
case, and scientists hare usually so
taught. But many farmers who have
followed their advice has learned by
sad experience that a good rule some
times haa important exceptions. For,
as a matter o' fact, it depends a good
deal on the character of the soil and
of the crop and of the season whether
deep plowing is advantageous or not;
and this scientists are (beginning , to
find out, as well as practical farmers.
An interesting experiment is on re
iord which throws much licht on this
subject. A farmer who bad been ac
customed to plow deeply, determined
to try lor a prize olfered by the local
agricultural society for the best half
acre of corn; He manured his half
acre heavily, turned up a nine-inch
furrow, stirred the soil seven inches
deeper with a subsoil plow, harrowed
thoroughly, and thought he had an
ideally prepared cornfield. The re
mainder of the field was manuied
heavily, plowed two inches deep and
well harrowed. The corn started sat
isfactorily on both plots, and for the
first month no difference between tbem
was apparent. But then a severe
drought set in, and at the end of July
the shallowed-plowed field was far
ahead. August proved dry, and at
the close of the month the corn on the
deeply plowed field was suffering
severely, the leaves turning yellow
nearly isp to the ears, while
the other plot suffered but
little. It trrew ranidlv and mail a thn
best crop of corn m the neighborhood,
notwithstanding the fact that it was
not hoed at all, while the well-prepared
half acre, which did not yield
over half as much, waa hoed twice.
Examination showed that the moist
ure had dried out to the bottom of the
deeply plowed furrow, while in the
bottom of the two-inch furrow moist
ure was plentiful. The surface soil
thus treated, it should be added, was
a light loam, quite rolling, with a sub
soil of yellow clay, thirty feet deep,
jointed and well adapted for draining.
it is hardly safe to generalize from a
single experience, but this experiment,
vuKuii iu connection witn otners,
seems to support the plan often ad
vocated of plowing deeply in the fall
for Bpring crops, and thoroughly pul
verizing the surface in the spring with
the harrow. By tryina the two sys
tems side by sido, as in the case above
citea, larmers may easily learn which
will yield the beet results for them.
The Farmer's "Better Half."
Not the least important factor in
the success of farming operations, by
any manner of means, is the farmer's
wife. If she is a capable woman," like
her of whom the Biblical proverb
maker wrote, she can do much to
make farming pay." The success of
many farmers is keeping their heads
above water in bad years, such as
have lately been experienced, is quite
as often due to the energy, skili and
thrift of his life partner aa to himself.
Indeed, the cases are not rare in which
the wife is "the better nian," and
really does more to keep things going
than the other half of the firm.
But too often this fact is sadly over
looked by him who should be the first
to recognizo it. American larmers do
not make beasts of burden of their
wives in the way that is common
abroad. But they have a way of
their own of dome it, which is not
quite so openly brutal, but is none
tho less hard and cruel. A faith
ful farmer's wife has a routine of
labor quite as exacting as her hus
bandmore so, in fact, for "man's
workisTrom sun to sun, but woman's
work is. never done." But while he
will hire all the help 1 needs, thereby
!argely increasing his wife's labor, and
will procure the best labor-saving
appliances for carrying on the farm
work, she must get along without
help for the sako of economy, and do
the best she can with the rudest and
simplest implements and a "bountiful
ack of conveniences. And hor
reward is too frequently scant
courtesy, a scanter supply of "pin
money, and an early grave or prema-
ure and melancholy old age.
A farmer's wife should undoubtedly
bear her fair share of the trials and
otirdens of life; but site should enjoy
her share of its successes, too, and
the man is not half a man who will
let his wife carry burdens beyond her
strength, for the ake ot enabling him
to add a few move dollars tc his bank
account. The rule of "share and
share alike" between husband and
wife would result in a good many
changes in farmhouse life. .It is a
good rule there and everywhere.
Are Large Barns Best?
There are somo reasons why a large,
roomy barn is better than two or
more small ones. It is more conven
ient, ot course, to have everything
hay, grain, cattle, horses, wagons and
farm tools under one roof. But, on
the other hand, there are seme
advantages in having smaller barns.
, In the first place, they need not be
as expensive in construction as the
large barn. Lighter timbers may be
used and the cost of erection is much
less. Then, incase of fire,' which is
more dreaded by the farmer than by
another class in the community,
owing to his isolated situation, the
loss may by good management be
confined to one building, having the
others intact. 1ms is a very import
ant consideration. Most of the lossig of
horses and other livestock at firesare
the result of suffocation by smoke, not
by the fire itself. It is not wise to put all
one's eggs in the same basket. If the
material and livstock are in two or
three or fivebuildings instead of one it
ia not probable that the fire will sweep
all away before aid can be obtained.
It is also worth thinking of that the
coot of insurance is usually greater on
a large barn, and on the etork, grains,
hay and implements stored in it than
on a number of small barns in which
these thing are distributed.
J or these and other reasons that
might be named it seems advisable for
all farmers of moderate means to
build small barns. Men who have
abundance of means can. of course.
indulge themselves in such luxuries as
large and expensive barns, with all
the risks pertaining thereto; but even
for them a series of smaller structures,
wisely planned and placed, would b
Absorbent Power of Straw.
Some interesting experiments have
been made to determine the absorb
ent power of wheat and other varie
ties of straw.
In one of these experiments small,
compact bundles of wheat, rye, oat
an. pea straw were put to soak in
water so as to be completely covered
After soaking for twenty-four hours
they were taken from the water, set
in an upwright position, and allowed
to drain for half an hour. They were
then left lying for an hour and a half,
in order that the excess of water
might drain off from them. They
were then weighed and at intervals
afterward during a period of forty
Hie experiment showed that the
wheat straw absorbed in the twenty
four hours 225.8 per cent, of water,
the rye straw 241.4, the oat straw
213.6, the pea straw 280.9. In tne
forty-four hours they lost respectively
55, 67,7, and 40 and 92.2 per cent, of
water leaving the per centage retained
in each as follows: Wheat. 170.8;
rye, 173.7; oat, 173.C; pea. 188.7.
A bundle of wheat straw left to soak
for forty-eight hours took up nearly
22 per cent, more water, or 247.6 per
cent. At the end of twenty-four hours
46.7 per cent was given off leaving
200.9 per cent of water after twenty-
four hours' exposure to the air.
Does Dairying Pay.
Does dairying pay? What a ques
tion. If by pay you mean netting an
income, it certainly will unless grossly
mismanaged and neglected, but when
you come to the amount of that in
come the question is instantly remov
ed from the dairy to the man. Each
owner of a dairy will succeed with it
to the limit of his ability and he must
govern his expenditures for family
comforts by that ability. If -he has
not much enterprise or judgment
then he must live very frugally ,but if he
is a young Napoleon in the dairy field
then he and his family may spread
themselves. There is an abundance
of room in the dairy business for any
sized genius, from the man who milks
two cows and peddles his milk by hand
and afoot, to the man who owns and
runs twenty to thirty factories. When
we come, though, to consider the pay
ing part of it, in ten years you would
probably find that the two cow man
has more money than the man with
thirtyr actones, at least such seems to
have been the fate of such large enter
prises. A littlo success in the dairy
has its temptations like any other
business to induce men to over crop
themselves, while the man who starts
on a small scale generally climbs to
the top. American Dairyman.
Making the Most of It.
There are some wiseacres who still
maintain that it is easier and more
profitable to grow two tons of hay on
two acres than on one acre, or toraisa
forty bushels of corn on four acreg
than the same amount from one acre.
It is safe to say that such persons
keep no account with their farms. It
is all guess work and theory. Practi
cal experience has shown just the re
verse. The land of which the most is
made, on which the proverbial two
blades of grass is grown where onegrew
before has been proyed to be by far.
the most economically worked, be-

and less highly cultivated area. Such

1 lie same thing is true m agriculture.
Whatever can be saved in labor, wages

herd of thoroughbred stock on a
foundation of dollar pigs.

getting crop bound.

Rheumatism is a prevalent disease
in hogs during fall and early winter.
Prevent it by giving them dry quart
ers. Some pens have dry floors, but
wet filthy sloughs beneath them.
Store hogs keep in health with lit

quarters and conditions. This is
easier than to doctor them because
they get off their feed or are otherwise
For tape worms in hogs, give no
food for 24-hours, then give half an
ounce to an ounce of spirits of turpen
tine, according to the size of the ani
mal. Dilate the dose with a half pint
of milk, and give no food for 12 hours
