CROWDING THE REBELS
AMERICANS CAPTURE MALOLOS
FROM THE FILIPINOS.

MacArthur entered Malolos, the seat of
the ao-called Insurgent government, at
9'M Thursday morning, the rebels burn
ing the city and simultaneously evacu

toward the north, where Agulnaldo and
bis cabinet have been for two days.
The United States troopB rested all
night In the jungle about a mile and a
quarter from Malolos. The day's ad
vance began at 2 o'cyock and covered
a distance of about two and a half
miles beyond the Gulgulnto river, long
The brunt of the battle was on the
right of the track, where the enemy
was apparently concentrated.
The First Nebraska, First South
Dakota and Tenth Pennsylvania regi
ments encountered them, entrenched on
the border of the woods, and the Amer.
leans, advancing across the open, suf
fered a terrific fire for half an hour.
Four men of the Nebraska regiment
were killed and thirty wounded.
Ten men of the Dakota regiment were
wounded and one of the Pennsylvania
Ten men of the Dakota regiment
were wounded and one of the Pennsyl
vanlans was killed.
The Americans finally drove the Fili
pinos back. Although there were three
lines of strong entrenchments along
the track, the enemy scarcely made
any defense there.
General MacArthur and his staff wer
walking on the track abreast of the line
with everything quiet, when suddenly
they received a shower of bullets from
sharpshooters In trees and on house
tops, but these were speedily dlsloged.
The enemy's loss was apparently
small, the jungle affording them such
protection that the Americans were un
able to see them, and In firing were
guided by the sound of the Filipino
hots. The American artillery was han
dicapped for the same reason.
Last night's long line of campflres
made a beautiful sight, with the Twen
tieth Wansas regiment on the left of
Gulgulnto station and the Pennsylvania
regiment on the right, beyond the river.
The provision train was delayed by
broken bridges, but the stores of grain
and flocks of ducks In the locality fur
nished ample forage. The hospital work

Washington, I. C (Special.) The

conveyed to the While house by Assist

General Corbln shortly before 1 o'clock

Ington and was received with Intense
satisfaction. The president had retired

The Glasgow Herald, In a recent re
view of the boot and shoe Industry In

lows: "Humiliating as It Is, It Is never
theless a fact that the Americans, In
upper leather almost entirely, and In
sole leather to a great degree, com
pletely eclipse our curriers and tan
ners, wbo are compelled to own that
they must adopt American methods If
they can hope to compete In the fu
ture. The question continually asked
In the boot and shoe trade Is: How
comes It that America Is able to deliver
to our very doors boots and shoes at
prices considerably less than can be ac
cepted by our own manufacturers, while
at the same time American leather, of
which by far the largest proportion of
our boots and shoes Is composed, Is sold
to our manufacturers at prices even leas
then to American manufacturers? And,
to make the solution all the more ob
eoure, It la also known, and proved be
yetid question, that the boot and (foe
opera tires In America earn wages al
most doable ours."

We hope that the winter that has just
passed has been fruitful of Intelligent
thinking on the farm, and that the
germ thoughts that have been dropped
into the farmer's mind during the sea
son of physlcial activity previous have
been fructified and rendered productive
in many ways that will find expression
In Improvement, both in aims and in
methods, durln the comln crop season.
One of the subjects to which we hope
thought has been given is the question
whether, under the particular circum
stances of each farmer, any greater di
versification of his own farming opera
tions can be Introduced with advan
tage. The general benefits of diversl
fled farming have been so often repeat
ed that a mere reference to some of the
more Important of them will be sufTl
cient here. One of these is expressed
in the old proverb which tells how un
wise It Is to put all one's eggs into the
same basket; another Is found In the
fact that the staple products for which
a section of country is particularly
adapted are always overdone and prices
are, as a rule, low and unremuneratlve,
with, of course, occasional exceptional
periods, which, however, are not of
much advantage to the producer for
the reason that they largely depend
upon a more or less complete crop fail
ure. In the corn belt corn Is an ex
ample of a staple universally grown at
very low profit to the farmer who pro
duces It. In the South the cotton crop
furnishes another example, and In the
Northwest wheat supplies still another.
Diversification relieves the pressure
which glut always produces, and to
that extent It Is an advantage to the
staple crop. Diversification also fur
nishes employment all the year round
to a greater extent than does a prac
tically exclusive devotion to a single
line of farming. There are other rea
sons for diversification, but our pres
ent purpose is only to hint at its ad-
We are aware that there are those
who take the opposite view and urge
that , this Is the day of specialists and
that the farmer must learn to excel in
some one thing to which he and his
soil and surroundings are particularly
fitted. In their arguments they usu
ally, however, overstate the side of di
versification, by representing It to
mean the raising of all klndas of crops
and all kinds of stock on one farm. We
have nothing to urge against the spe
cialist who has found some particular
line in which, by reason of his tastes
and surroundings, he has been able to
excel, and with which he succeeds In
farming profitably. Nor would we say
anything to deter the man who be
lieves he has found such a line and
who proposes to try It. The diversifica
tion for which we plead Is that lead
ing away from exclusive devotion to
the staple crop or crops particularly
adapted to the section, that are almost
Invariably overdone. The specialist
who has found profitable line of work
has rarely or never discovered It In sta
ple crops. He has taken advantage of
some circumstances attending his situ
ation and has learned to excel In some
particular line not generally pursued
over any large area of country. Any
farmer who can profit by his example
will do well to do so, but for the gen
eral farmer who Is now devoting his
land, time and labor to the production
of low priced stayles, diversity presents
many advantages, and to It there are
few objections. It Is not meant by this
that the farmer should take a seed
catalogue and attempt to grow every
thing he finds In It, but there are few
aectlons of country to which a very
considerable diversity la not possible,
and from those crops that thrive well
In hla vicinity the general farmer will
do well to select a considerable num
ber, In the light of hla opportunities for
finding a market for them and of his
necessity for continuous employment. If
he Intends to make farming pay. No
body can hope to prosper by working
like a Turk for a little bit of the year,
and having no paying industry for the
remainder of the twelve months.
All Vie, whether animal or vegetable,
develops along certain general lines
that are sufficiently Identical to make
breeding up possible In both kingdoms
by substantially the same methods. The
law of heredity, which prescribes that
like shall beget like, Is found in Gen
esis in the declaration of the Creator
that each living thing should produce
after its kind, and applies to both. The
law of variation, which gives to each
individual of a particular kind an In
dividuality of Its own, permeates all
life. The reader may know thousands
of men and he will be able to see dis
tinguishable differences which prevent
him from mistaking one of his ac
quaintances for another, and in like
manner each bud and plant have, to
the eye capable of seeing them, differ
ences that are relatively just as po
tential In conferring individuality upon
It. This fact makes possible selection
in the directon toward wheh the breed
er and improver of either plants or an
imals wishes to go. All life, too, if
affected by environment, which is only
another way of saying that all life has
to a certain degree the ability to con
form to outward surroundings. It
must have It or perish. A familiar ex
ample Is found In the fact that on the
southern edge of the corn belt seed
corn of early varieties must be contin
uously renewed from the north, or the
sort will, after a few years of cultiva
tion In the new locality, cease to be
an early variety. The well known ex
periments in which a tall, broad-grained,
white variety from America was
changed after six years of cultivation In
Germany to a dwarf, flinty, round-ker-neled,
yellow variety, is well known
and aptly Illustrates the Influence of
environment. Many of the facts of en
vironment are within human control.
notably those depending upon the fer
tility of the soil and the moisture sup
ply where Irrigation is possible. The
facts of climate are less controllable,
but even they can be helped by a selec
tion of exposure, the growing of wind
breaks and the like.
While in the Improvement and de
velopment of domestic animals, In or
der to make them better adapted to
man's use, the laws which make such
development and Improvement possi
ble are pretty clearly recognized; with
respect to plants the recognition Is
much less general. A few plant breed
ers have associated the facts and have
greatly Improved nearly all varieties
of cultivated vegetation by the applica
tion of their knowledge of the work.
but the frequently observed tendency of
Improved varieties to "run out" indi
cates that the general farmer, for whose
benefit the Improved varieties have
been made, does not appreciate the ne
cessity for continuing, under penalty
of losing the improvements, the con
ditions that have made them. If the
farmer will, at least for this seed crop,
continue the work of selection, he, too,
can be an Improver, and for his own
particular locality can make better Im
provements than could even aVllmorln,
because they will be made under the
conditions of his own environment and
will therefore continue more stable.
Work of this kind not only Improves
the seed, but It improves the farmer
who carries It on. It makes him more
thouhtful, more observant and brins
the powers of his mind more fully Into
action and thus cultivates them. The
faculties thus excited strengthen and
their application soon becomes visible
In all the work of the farm. Every
farmer should. In a limited way, at
least, try to be an Improver of the seed
he uses, not only for the sake of his
crop, but for his own sake. In making
better corn, better wheat, better oats,
or the like, he will find himself gradu
ally making a ljetl- ner and a
more capable all-arc in.
CARE OF LITTERS.
Much of the spring farrow occurs be
fore settled weather comes, and suitable
shelter Is therefore one of the first re
quisites for successful pig manage
ment. The hog can endure Its fair
share of cold, but It can not endure ex
posure to cold winds and the young
litters can endure It still less. Cold
winds almost invariably produce con
stipation In the mature hog, and the
brood sow Is especially liable to It. As
this Is a source of much of the loss
occurring among young pigs, special
attention should be paid to protecting
both. There should be a gain of some
thing over forty pounds for each of
the pigs In seventy days. Such a gain
takes a large amount of feed, and to
ward the close of the ten weeks this
litter had corn meal and milk aggre
gating 167 pounds of meal and 501
pounds of sweet skim milk . Notwith
standing this supplemental feeding, the
dam lost eighty-six pounds during the
suckling period. These figures show
the Importance of feeding the sow with
mllk-maklng food during nursing time.
Immediately after farrowing the deam
should receive no food at all for per
haps twenty-four hours. All feeding,
however, must be accompanied with ex
ercise on the part of the pigs, or the
thumps will be common, and the little
fellows should be taught to eat early.
A little onts, meal or the like, In a
trough placed where they can get at It
and the sow cannot reach It, will soon
teach the pig to help himself, and the
shock to the digestive system may be
reduced to almost nothing when wean
ing time arrives.
CORN FOR HOGS.
There Is a great deal of criticism of
corn aa a practically exclusive feed
for hogs In the corn belt, which is co
incident in area with the commercial
swine belt, and many of the obstacles
to success in swine growing are ascrib
ed with more or less truth to the evil
effects of continuous corn feeding. The
main fact remains, however, that corn
is the best fattening food in the world
and that If it were not for corn the
commercial supply of hogs would be
slender, Indeed, because the necessity
for utilizing the crop is the Inducement
to grow hogs. At the same time it
must be admitted that corn should
have a much smaller place on the hog'B
bill of fare during the first half of its
life than is customary. It Is a very su
perior fattening food and for this rea
son it Is a bad frame-builder, still the
corn belt farmers can not get along
without it and would grow compara
tively speaking, no hogs if he did not
have it. His attention should be di
rected to the substitution of other and
better growing feeds during the grow
ing period. What they shall be is not
yet settled, and the answer to the ques
tion will always vary in different lo
calities. Clover and alfalfa afford a
partial answer so far as a coarse forage
is concerned, but do not solve the ques
tion as to concentrated feeds. Without
attempting any radical revolution In
methods the swine growing farmer
should constantly be on the lookout for
variety and a larger proportion of the
foods of growth for feeding during the
first five mnths of the hog's life than is
now the eneral custom. What the feeds
shall be largely depends on the circum
stances of the particular swine grow
er. But they should Include variety,
should be more largely composed of ni
trogenous elements and Bhould be
grown on the farm. Iowa Homestead,
