A Field g! Pencllaria
A New Feed
G. B. Wells, Washington Co., Kas.,
says: "We planted Pencilaria early
in April and it made an immense
mass of foliage. The fodder makes
an excellent feed for hogs and horses,
being sweet and nice, and the seed Is
extra nice for chicken feed. I ex
pect to plant largely of it this year."

This new fodder plant seems to be
attracting universal attention among
our readers, and the crop is truly
wonderful, as it yields from three to
seven cuttings per year from one
sowing and has produced 95 tons
of green fodder per acre from three
cuttings in a carefully weighed test.
The seeds are so very small that
nne nound will plant an acre and still
one plant usually has 25 to 75 stalks
growing 7 to 14 feet in height. When
it is figured that one-fourth acre will
produce sufficient fodder to support
a cow six months either for summer
or winter food, and that the dry hay
as well as the fresh fodder is highly
nourishing, the value of the new
plant will be better appreciated.
Knowing that many of our readers
will want to try it, we have arranged
with the introducers, the Iowa Seed
Co., of Des Moines, la., to send a
small sample (sufficient, to plant a
row 100 feet long) free to any one
who wishes it. Be sine to mention
The Independent in writing them.
After the Funeral
Editor Independent: I am an old
man, born in 1833; have seen the
democratic party come out; also the
republican party, but yet knowing as
I do that my time is short, still I love
my country and human rights. I am
a middle-road populist as will W. J.
Bryan be in 1905, after the democratic
corpse is buried, which will be done
in 1904. T. W. J -US LEY.

74 years old, but will do all I can for
your paper, as it advocates my prin

throughout the country. I enclose $1

last, including with a card for ore

per to others when I read them. I
see in the states where the disorgan
izes who repudiated the Chicago and
Kansas City platforms they were
beat. We should not bo discouraged
over that; it shows that Hill and
Cleveland caused the defeat in the
eastern' and some western states, and
if the 'populists, democrats and sil

they will win I think two years hence;

that Pennsylvania went so strong re

and Roosevelt would not have cracked
his finger to stop it if it had not been

not see it. The operators now are
kicking against recognizing the union

Pushing the liducat'onal Work
Edilor Independent: You will find
enclosed sixty cents for six trial sub
scriptions. I am sending this to these
several friends knowing they will ap
preciate the paper in its noble de
fense of the right and exposure of
bad men and tiieir unholy designs.
Have mailed the five cards and en
close one order blank filled out. I
hope a majority of these will renew,
hut, in case they do not, please discon
tinue at expiration of trial subscrip
tions. William Peaks is a staunch
republican, but open to conviction.
Dr. Walker is a populist, and re
mainder of list are all warm Bryan
democrats. I am very much pleased
with The Independent. Wish every
man open to conviction could read it
and 1 hereby be made to realize the
great, danger we are under as a free
proplf so-called, and awake to a full
s n.-'.e" of our duties and privileges.
Will do all that. I can to extend the
circulation of The Independent. If
you have the back numbers, will be
glad for the subscriptions to begin
with the first, issue of the year. Will
strive to send in my clues right soon.
