by swift and sure punishment, it will
be much easier to make the masses re

when the oldest is 21. he cannot as

to loaf around home, and there is no
need of his services as a hired in.in
He must go out Into the w orld of labor
and do something. If he has been giv

way to entering a profession, or a

that he is content to become a farm

In a recent Issue of the Independeu
there was a novel bit of criticism that
makes interesting reading. An Amer
ican machinist who lives In England
was invited to criticize freely and hot)
estlv the Londoners and a Londoner
was given space to tell the worst he
knew about America. Virgil E. Ftack
house, American, dipped his pen In
vitriol and declared that the average
Londoner is a pitiful type of mankind.
He Is densely ignorant, and knows lit
tie else than to say "God save the
King" in season and out. His life Is
monotony intensified and education is
mostly gained in the public house
which are frequented by women and
children. Mr. Stackhouse sees nothinp

find the great American fault. lie
says we feel too big and haven't a
proper sense of the fitness of things;
that we don't realize how inharmo
nious we are. This may mean a good
deal or It may mean nothing, but as
examples he found fault with the
spread of Christian Science and the
decorations at the funeral of Wm. Mc
Kinley. He also asserts that "When
discipline becomes less abhorrent to
the American mind, American life, so
cial and Intellectual, will become less
afflicted by the spirit of jerkiness." In
other words we are condemned for
being natural. We keep our feet on
the ground and our hearts In the right
place. Few of us wear a society mask,
and If we are raw and crude, we are
at least human. Mr. Horwill did a
poor Job at criticizing. If the worst
that the world can find to say of
America cuts no deeper than a sugges
tion that we don't know how to wear
our clothes or act when company
comes, there Is still hope for the laud

Much has been heard of the life In
surance policy holder who dies unex
pectedly after paying a premium or
two, thereby netting to bis family
many thousands of dollars In return
for only a hundred or two paid In. He
Is a perennial figure and a rather fas
cinating one, for human nature Is such
that the pleasure of possibly getting
back f 10 for every one paid out Is held
to be almost qufie worth dying for.
In all seriousness, however, It Is one
of the most powerful arguments In fa
vor of Insurance that the chance of sud
den death Is robbed of some of Its ter
rors in the knowledge that the home
has been protected at a relatively small
outlay against penury. But there Is
now a later boast In connection with
life Insurance in the person of the aged
policy holder, who has been Insured
for half a century or so, Is glad to con
tinue paying premiums and finds com
pensation for the fact that he has not
gotten the best of tbe company In that

ments have gone to help In the families
of his many fellow mem!ers who have

thepubllcand points to the fact that he
has "paid premiums for fifty-two years,
and hopes to live to pay several more."
Other wheel horses of policy holders

of premiums turned in are watching

hope that be may be called to a better
world In time to let some one of them
claim the honor of being tbe oldest liv

not be many life policy holders who
will tarry on earth long enough to pay
more In thsn their families will receive

cases cited, that when they do survive

Cruelty to Cows.
Men may regard cattle as more ma
chines, but the fact remains that they
are of a sensitive organization, capa
ble of suffering and enjoyment, and
that to a degree too often lost sight
of. The idea that it Is Just as well
for a cow, either In point of comfort
or health, to be tied up six months
with no exercise, is contrary to all
physiological teaching; and that nutri
tious food, light and exercise are nec
essary to the maintenance of health
and a full development. Give cows
chance to go out In the sunlight of the
warm days in the winter and see bow
quickly they go and see the real en
joyment depicted on their expressive
faces. Even though the milk flow, may
be somewhat lessened, will not what
Is lost In quantity be made up In qual
ity? At any rate, 1 am sure I would
much rather eat dairy products of
strong, healthy cows than that of
ihuse weakened and enervated by
close confinement and unnatural food,
such as would In an exclusive diet of
corn meal. It is not necessary. In or
der to give them a little exercise and
sunlight to range over an extensive
area. Let them out In an ordinary
sized yard and they will not do trav

amount of energy. Farm, Stock and

Value of Ground Grains.
In feeding grain to stock of any kind,
there Is no doubt but what the best re
sults will come from feeding whole
grain pert of the time and ground grain
on alternate days. It Is known that
feeders In some sections object to the
feeding of ground products, but usual
ly because of tbe supposed expense of
grinding. True, Ibis Is considerable if
one has to pay for grinding, but In a
neighborhood where considerable stock
Is kept It will pay farmers to own a
machine In common, bnylng one with
a belt attachment so that an engine
may be used. I'sually any man owning
an engine will do the work for twenty
five cents an hour, and a hundred bush
els may be ground at small expense. In
the feeding of this ground product, one
must I guided by experience, but mix
tures of corn sn osts are generally de
sirable, while to still further vary the
ration, these grains may be fed separ
ately. This sort of feeding always gives
tbe best results snd st s cost compara
tively small. 8t Fsnl Dispatch.
The Seed ftapply.
No seedsmsn can guarantee an even
quality of all his aeeds every yesr. In
some, unfavorable growing seasons oc
cur; In others iasocts and fungus dis
eases assail the crops; In fact, there Is
not often a season when all seed crops
are both large and of prime quality.
Those who are Interested In cucumber
growing will ha surprised at the high
price they will hare to pay for cucum
ber seed this year; la Nebraska last
iwasoa, where immense crops of su
perior need are bow aaooally raised.

the crop wss sn entire failure snd the
crops elsewhere were variable. Of late
years Michigan has become one of tb
largest producers of seed peas, but tb
crop there last season was very short,
so that the cost of seed will be greater,
if anything, than in 1002. Some beans,
too, are scarce, the wax varieties par
tfeularly. There was only a moderate
crop of reliable seed of some sorts of
squash, that of the Hubbard being leva
than moderate. , The price pf onion
seed will be about the same, and cab
bage seed will be lower. No growei
should plant corn this year, at least
without first carefully testing it.' Id
many of the seed-growing sections the
crop had not tluis to mature promptly,

Weed Pecda in Grain.
Several hundred samples of timothy
alsike and red clover on sule by local
dealers In different provinces have
been analyzed at Ottawa, Ont. . In
some 10 to 30 per cent by weight of
sand was found; 63 per cent of the
wimples contained over two thousand
weed seeds per pound, 44 per cent ovei
five thousand and 25 per cent over ten
thousand. Not more than 2 per cent
of the samples were found free from
weed seeds. These facts are In lln
with a recent complaint from a Massa
chusetts farmer In regard to the rapid
spread on his farm of a "new weed
with white blossom and a hot, bitter
taste." Investigation showed the pre
eiue of wild carrot, that pest of the
bay field In so many localities. The
weed had first appeared in quantify
along the borders of a field of oats.
Better for the farmer to have paid
double price all lils life for the lcst
grade of seed oats from a reliable deal
er than to have Introduced such a
weed In cheap grain seed. It costs
more to raise pedigree seed and to
raise It on clean land, but the result
is worth the difference. Better rais
one's own seed grain on the farm than
to buy hap hazard at the store. Ma

In a herd of twelve cows, tested foi
three years In connection with the Wis
consin dairy school, tbe milk of on
cow was worth $110 more than tht
feed she ate, while that of five othei
cows added together only amounted te
$11 more than their feed. One cow
produced nearly as much profit as flv
cows In the same herd. The feed and
labor cost about the same for a poor
cow as for a good one, but what a dif
ference In the net results. The resulu
of actual weighing and tests of farm
herds In various dairy sections of thf
country Indicate that few herds exist
In which at least one cow In ten doct
not fall to pay expenses when feed ii
reckoned at market value. Often il
happens that a cow, supposed by tb
owm-r to be fairly good, has proved
the poorest of the herd when her milk
Is weighed and tested for a year.

and a demand is developed for your

men pay big prices for breeding stock

It is useless to expect a great flow ol

Care should be taken never to over

The fact that a cow gives a larg

her bringing a good calf.
The colder butter can be churne
