Oentlemen I have been a victim oi rheumatism
nr several vears Dast. 1 have suffered intensely at
tirrc, and have Rone to the Hot Springs o iSocth
Dakota, and the Uot Springs oi Arkansas ve
tinea, seeking relief. I have also taken maca
medicine under tha directions of able physicians.
About one month ago I suffered from one ef the
nost violent attacks of the disease, and at once be
gan taking hot salt water baths at your new and
splendid hath house in this city. Under the rare of
four gentlemanly and efficient attendant, Mr. Uenry
Schmntte, I have, I think, entirely recovered.
Fro i earertence and my observation of the re
sults of treatment of many patients at the Hot
Springs above nsi'ed and at your hath house, I . am
convinced that better and quicker results can be ob
tained by a course of hot salt water baths at your
bath house than atany other place in the country.
I do not hesitate not only to recommend, but to
urge every person suffering from rheumatism to try
a course of baths at y"ur bath house under the
directions of one of the physicians in charge
I believe your new and magnificent bath house
will rove a great blessing to the many victims
of rheumatism In this vicinity, and I hope it will re
ceive the liberal patronage it merits.
You have not requested of me any testimonial,
but I deem it proper that I should acknowledge the
great relief I have reecved at your bands, and you
may use what I have said in such manner as you
may deem proper. Very respectfully,

Thoughts oa tha Merino.
At the annual meeting: of the New
York state merino sheep breeders'
association, the president, S. B.
lusk, made, among otnurs, the fol
I have little apprehension that
the American Merino will be aban
doned by those who have heretofore
stayed by them in times of depres
sion, and know their value a sheep
that has constantly improved with us
in our climate, and with our manage
ment from Its first introduction, now
well nigh one hundred years.. And they
will also find new friends. The com
ing generation will want a sheep that
does not require foreign importations
to keep up. to say nothing of making
an improvement If the inhabitants
of the United States ever become
consumers of mutton to anything
like the extent that it is consumed
in England, I believe a lutton sheep
will be evolved from the American
Merino that will be adapted to the
wants of the country; and as it is
already acclimated will be susceptible
of any needed improvement And
that all of , the so-called mutton
breeds have so far failed to do.
But that which concerns us most
is what to do with the American
Merino as we find them to-day? What
in my judgment we should do is to
keep them and improve them, and
in looking about us for chances for
improvement, it w.ll be well to first
look and see that wo have mude no
Some breeders years ago raised the
question as to the good or bad effect
of our public shearings as they have
been managed. The announcement
goes out that a certain sheep sheared,
a given number of pounds of wool,
and the carcass weighed so much.
And that is about all there is of it.
unless one is there to see for himself.
I was present at a shearing, where a
ram so inferior that no good breeder
would think of using him, sheared
(not of wool but of stutl that grew on
him with a little wool to hold it to
gether.) more pounds than any other
ram shorn at tuat annual shearing.
And , this worthless ram was
proclaimed the heaviest shearer
at the New York state American
Merino sheep shearing, and he
was not worth a two dollar
note. This, of course, was an
extreme case; but in looking forim
provement in the future, it may be
well to see if some of us have-not
grown more neece than tne ;;ncep
can well carry, although perhaps of
good quality and only about the nee
essary amount of oil to lubricate
suchafli ece. A ram weighing 150
pounds, fleece off, and shearing 30
pounds, carries before being shora
one pound of fleece to five pounds f
carcass. Is not that about all he can
well carry and be used for breeding
purposes, and keep up his constitu
tion? 1 have known rams to shear
forty pounds, and weigh little more
than 100 pounds with fleece off
about one pound of fleece to two
pounds of carcass. But I havo
nuver known such a sheep to
live io be an old sheep. 1'erhaps,
under existing circumstances, it may
be well to improve the carcass, in
crease the size, and not pay quit3 so
much attention to piling on the wool,
I think no one will disagree with me
in the importance of looking after
One word more and I am done
Not even tho American Merino can
improve if neglected. If compelled
to fall back upon their constitution
to sustain themselves, they will sure
ly deteriorate. Our lamented friend
and' associate, the Hon. E. Townsend.
once bought some of our favorite
sheep, and got a well written pod I
gree'from a successful breeder. At
the bottom, written in a bold hand,
were these, words: "Care is the secret
of success." He at the time was
scarcely out of his teens; but le often
said that it was the most valuable
pedigree he ever received.
If the business is dull don't neglect
the flock. Care for It well, breed it
in aocord with your best judgment.
and the American Merino, the best
sheep in the known world, will in
the future, as In tho past respond to
any reasonable draft the brooder
may make upon tho flock.
Tho re are certain facts concerning
the three valuable ingredients of

Phosphoric acid and potash are
best applied some weeks before
planting a crop and should be plowed
under. There is little danger of
leaching from these mineral fertil
izers. Kalnit is the proper form of potash
for sandy soils, as it makes them
more compact; for stiff soils muriate
and sulphate of potash are best
Potash u especially valuable for

Sandy and lime stone soils nearly

sometimes contain sufficient potash
and again thjy do not; this should
be ascertained by experiments.

Granular Butter. -
How many boys and girls on tho
farm have had an old apron tied
around their waists and been told to
churn until tho butter will hold up
the dusherP" Such instructions are
fatal to good butter. In the first
place, says Hoinostead, tho dah
churn is ten years bohln 3 tho times
and ought to be thrown out of every
farm house, even If no more butter
is made than to supply the family
tablo. The box or barrel churn is
cheap and it is so much more con
venient and so much better butter
can bo made with it that there
should be no hesitation in discarding
tbe old da-h churn in its favor. But
no matter what kind of a churn is
used, nover churn until tho butter is
gathered in chunks large enough to
hold up the dasher. There are sev
eral reasons why this should not be
done. One ot them is that the grain
is destroyed. Good butter has a
fine distinct grain and when broken
shows a distinct fracture like cast
iron. If this grain is destroyed by
over-churning or over-working, the
butter becomes a greasy mixture,
like lard, and has a greay taste.
Again it is necessary that the buttor
milk bo well washed out or the but
ter will become strong and rancid
in a short time. This cannot be
done when tho butter is churned into
lumps, so in the latter case the grain,
flavor and keeping quality are all
Injured. The churn should , always
be stopped when the butter is in the
form of small granules, ranging in
size from a red clover seed to a grain
of wheat; then the butter milk can
be well washed out and the grain will
bo uninjured if the working is proper
ly done. There is no reason why tho
farmer should not make just as fl e
butter as anyone, providing he 11
take the trouble to do it right

Hens that have plenty of exercise
and free access to the ground or to
deposits of gravel will not lay soft
eggs. Such hens are not only too
fat, but their digestion has been Im
paired by a life of inactivity. If we
keep them on starvation diet we do
not necessarily help their digestion.
The best course with hens that lay
soft egg shells is to kill them for the
table. They are always fat and
ready to kill. If allowed to live such
fowls will get in the habit of eating
their eggs, and this habit soon af
fects the entire flock. Keep fowls at
work for what grain they get and
they will find material for egg shells
of sufficient hardness. The hard
shelled eggs produce the most vigor
ous chicks, though they may some
times need help to break their
shells. American Cultivator.

THE SEICNIOPACE DEBATE.
Remarks by Meaera. Stone of Pennsylva
nia, Ilarter and K II it ore.
Washington, Feb. 13. In the ailver
debate yesterday in the house
Mr. C. W. Stone, of Pennsylvania,
who is at the head oi tbe minority
committee on coinage, weights and
measures, replied to Mr. ItlanJ. He
agreed, he said, with Mr. Bland, that
if the llrst section of tha bill was to bo
passed the second section should be.
'II we are prepared to agree to tne
practical embezzlement of a trust
fund in the first section, we should
not hesitate at the irregularity con
tained in the second section."
He contended that there was no ex
isting seigniorage; that it was purely
imaginary as yet
If 855,000,000 of additional treasury
notes were issued, as required by tho
provision of this bill, without a dol
lar for which certificates were issued
being deposited in the treasury, each
certificate would bo on its face a lieu.
It was, in effect, "watering" the
treasury notes to the extent of $55,
000,000 when the face value of these
notes already exceed the market
value of the bullion security behind
them by over 156,000.000.
Mr. McKeighan, Populist, Nebraska,
made a free silver argument. A gold
basis and a high tariff, he said, was
discriminating against the West in the
interest of the East
At the end of Mr. McKeiirhan's
speech, which consumed an hour and
a half. Mr. Ilarter, Democrat Ohio,
took the floor in opposition to the MIL
There were three means ol reliev
ing tbe treasury, according to Mr.
Ilarter, any of which would snffloe.
The first was to reduce salaries twenty-five
per cent, including members of
Tbe second method proposed by Mr.
Ilarter was a duty on sugar, which
would provide 135,000,000; a further
increase of the whisky tax to 11.20 a
gallon, which would furnish 9-0,000,.
000; an increase of the tax on beer to
S3, and a duty on tea and coffee. A
tax of one-tenth of a cent per cup on
tea and coffee, he aald, would yield a
revenue of 820,000.000.
Mr. Kilgore, of Texas, who made
the concluding argument of the after
noon, contended that if the govern
ment was in need of money, it was
better to coin the seigniorage than to
borrow money and pay Interest upon
the loan. Without completing his
speech Mr. Kilgore yielded to a mo
tion that the committee rise. Then at
5 o'clock the house adjourned.
