BircS, seeking relief. I have alto taken nact
SMdlcine under the direction of able physicians.
Aboat one month ttK I suffered from one of the
asost violent attack of the disease, and at once be

splendid bath house in thiicity. Under the rare of

J winced that better and quicker results caa be oe

I believe your new and magnificent balh house
will prove a great blessing to the many victims
of rheumatism in this vicinity, and 1 hope it will re

Another investigation undertaken
y. past year is an attempt to com
t ie drainage with sub-irrieation in
tlic out door garden. In other words,
it is an effort to develop a plan for
the effective and economical control
of soil moisture.
Tbe greatest obstacle to tbe suc
cess of intensive garden culture is
the irregularity of moisture in the
soil There is too much at one time
and too little at another. In early
spring and not unfrequontly at othor
times during the year, the soil is too
wet; during summer and autumn it
is usually too dry. How to removo
superfluous moisture at one time and
supply the lack at another, in a prac
tical way, is the problem we are now
trying to solve.
The following Is a brief outline of
the work already done, writes W. K.
Hazenby in Colman's Hural World.
A fairly level spot was selected In the
vegetable carden and divided into
five plots each twenly-flve by forty
feet In plot No". 2. lines of three
Inch tile were laid eight inches deep
and two and one-half feet apart, the
rows extending lengthwise of the
The tllo was laid upon an exact
level and the . ends embedded in
cement. At one end of each row or
line, an upright tile was placed, into
which water could be turned. The
opposite ends were all connected
with a lino of tile which cootlnued
beyond the plot! and acted as an outlet
when the tiles were used as a drain.
A valve was placed at the beginning
of this outlet so that when desired,
water could be held in the tiles.
That is, when the soil was too wet
the valve was opened and the tiles
'acted as a drain; when it became too
! dry and water was turned into tbe
I tiles, the valve was closed, and the
tiles acted as a reservoir from which
the water passed into the'soiL
riot Ho. 2 was tested in the same
way except that only one nan tne
number of tiles were used. Instead
of ten rows two and one-half feet
apart, there were five rows five feet
apart In every other respect the
treatment was the same. The plots
were closely watched In arly spring
to note the effects of the tilas as to
drainage, or the removal of surplus
water. While no definite statement
can now bo made, it can be said in
general that the coil of tbe tiled
plots was dry and in a fit condition
to work several days before that of
adjacent untiled plots.
The following crops were planted,
each extending across the five plots
early beets, onions, potatoes and
string beans. The early beets ma
tured and were marketed early and
but little difference In yield was
noted between the tiled and untiled
plots. Up to the period of harvest
ing this crop, there was an abun
dance, although not an excess of
moisture. For the-onions and string
beans water was turned into the tiles
at five different times, and the effect
was marked. The former crop
yielded an increase of over fifty per
cent and the latter was considerably
more than doublod in weight Be
sides this increase in weight the
season was greatly lengthened and
the quality of the crop greatly lm
proved. At the above rate of gain,
for intensive cultivation, this system
or controlling soil moisture is a
grand success. It has all the ad
vantages of under-surface watering
in the greenhouse, and combines
drainage, when an access of moisture
renders this necessary.
There is no ''dairy belt" in this
country. Just as good butter and
cheese can be made in one state as
anothur. Some of the finest dairies
in the country are to bo foun'd in
Tennessee, Mississippi and Texas,
whilo the West is famous for taking
first prizes at interstate fairs. What
is needod is plenty of good water for
cows and washing utensils. It is
real calamity to run short of water
in the dairy, and no one should ft',art
without a nevjr-htiling supply. Then

A good authority on sheep manage
ment says: It is advisable to give
sheep access to salt continually. It
can bo kept in covered troughs from
waste by rains. As a partial pro
tection from ravages by dogs, it is
well to bell about one-twentieth of
tho sheep. There is usually a
"leader in every nock. lhis ons
should always be belled, if any are.
It is thought by many that sheep are
more apt to be worried by dogs when
pastured in the woods than when in
the open f olds. The reverse is the
case. Mieep-killing dogs, like hu
man thieves, are great cowards.
They mutt see an apparently freo
d for escape before thoy will be
gin to deprodato. There is safety
in the woods, but more or less
danger in the open fields. Mieep
are summered continually in a
wooded tract of thousands of acres
near me. and by diligent inquiry I
cannot learn of a case whero they
have been molestod by dogs.although
the latter are plentiful around the
tract .Sheep aro subject to internal
parasites much more than formerly,
and flocks aro often decimated by
them. Salt, sulphur aud spirits of
turpentine are the best remedy. To
administer It, take salt, four parts;
sulphur, one part; turpentine, enough
to very slightly moisten; mix them.

OKLAHOMA STANDS ALONE.
rrobabl; Insurmountable Objections to
Im-lutling the Territory In a State.
Wshisaotox, Jan. 39. Most of the
arguments, written and verbal, thus
far presented to the senate committee
on territories for the admission of
Oklahoma as a state, have advocated
that the lands of the. five civilized
tribes be included in the boundaries.
However desirable such a consum
mation may appear and in fact would
be there Is the very gravest danger
that persistency of effort on these
line will postpone Oklahoma's ad
rmshlon for some time. Lawyers of
standing in the houe and senate even
hold that the supreme court wouiu ae
clare the act invalid by reason of the
explicit declaration ol the treaties
that the lands in question should
never become part of any state or ter
ritory without the consent of the In
dians, There are immediate practical diffi
culties no less formidable than the
more distant leiral ones. General
Wheeler, chairman of the house com
mittee on territories, without specific
ally defending bis own position yet
says those treaties create an insur
mountable bar and the lands of the
five tribes cannot be added to the pro
posed state without trampling those
treaties ruthlessly under foot.
POPULIST INCOME PLANS.
A Substitute for a Ciraduated Tax to Be
Laid Before tbe Mouse.
Wasihsotox, Jan. 29. The Populist
members of the house have arranged
with Representative Richard-un, pre
siding officer of the committee of the
whole, for the recognition of one of
their number to move the substitution
of their proviniou for a triaduated in
come tax in place ol the tlx eel ta x ol
two per cent In case the income tax
feature in added to the Wilson bill.
Tbe substitute measure has been
prepared and is now ready to be
offered at the first opportunity. In
stead of 3 per cent on all incomes of
over 4,(XX, thlB amendment proposes
a irraduated increase, fixing the tax
1 per cent on all incomes between
82,500 and 810,000: at 3 per cent on in
comes between 910,000 and 930.000; at
3 per cent between 30,000 and fl0,000;
at 4 per cent between $00,000 and
$100,000, and at 5 per cent on all in
comes over $100,000.

VERY FEW AMENDMENTS MADE
IN THE HOUSE.
TWO IMPORTANT CHANGES MADE.
Tbe Sugar Hounty Knoeked Out anf
Wool to Be free Immediately oa tbe
Passage of the Act Representa
tive Barrows Hpeaks of tbe
Pisa of Campaign of the
Washington, Jan. 29. The Wilson
tariff bill emerged to-day from the
ordeal of amendments to which It had
been subjected the last two weeks and
is now in its perfected form so far as
the house can perfect it. The ad- -ditional
days of debate next week,
will be given exclusively to the in
come tax. It has been so difficult to
keep truck of the different amend
ments from day to day that the ways
and means committee have not copies
of the perfected bill.
C Of the two material alterations in
the bill sugar and wool that on
sugar is of far reaching consequence.
The committee had decided to grad
ually extinguish tho sugar bounty by
taking a part off each year for eight
years. liut the radical anti-sugar ele
ment succeeded In passing their
amendment doing away with the
bounty at a single stroke. The rad
icals also amended the bill so that re
fined sugar, as well as raw, goes on
tbe free list. ,
The wool amendment changes the
bill so that free raw wool and reduced
duties on manufactured woolens go
into effect as soon as the tariff bill
becomes a law. The bill bad fixed
August 1 as the date for free
raw wool to take effect and ' De
cember 1 as the date for the reduced
duties on manufactured woolens, llut
the radical element would accept no
delay, and as a result, there la no post
ponement of dates in the woolen
schedule. The difference of four
months between free raw wool and
reduced duty on manufactured wool
was given In order to allow the trade
to adjust itself to the change.
Among the lesser amendments maue
are those raising the duties on dia- ,
monds from 10 per cent under the bill
to 30 per cent and the spec! tie repeal
of the reciprocity clause of the McKin-
Representative liurrows, lie pub
lican, of Michigan says: "The Repub
lican members of the house will have
do caucus on the tariff or income tax
questions. Neither have they agreed
on a policy. There is no need of an
affirmative policy. We are simply
passive while the majority proceeds to
execute its commission. We recognize .
it would be futile for us to attempt to
execute any affirmative policy. We
have offered amendments, but they
have failed of recognition, or have
been defeated by the majority. What
need, therefore, Is there on our side of
the house of a policy? We will quietly
wait while the other side furnishes
Representative MCMiuen, in cnarge
of the Income, tax bill, said as to the
prevailing reports that the income tax
