i Chicago Chronicle: An extensive
ftroperator on the Now York stock ex

of observation through tho West, is
qnotod a2 Baying that farming commun
ities nro "in bad shape." That, how
Ser, is duo to past, not proaont, condi

' cline him to the boar side.
Tho most interesting statement re-
jjarJlng his observations is this: "At
t every point whero ho came across a

He found life nnd prosperity." Clparly
ho did not get his Information from Ro-
publican politicians. Anyone of them
would havo told him that wherever
tjjpro was a manufacturing town noth-
' l,pg but calamity was In sight. Any Me-
- Klnley boomer would havo assured him
- that to say there was anything resemb-
. ling prosperity In any manufacturing
' town was the ronkost of rank heresy.
- It is the first article In the Repub
lican creed this year that such ftjthing
bs prosperity In any manufacturing in
to dustry Is simply impossible under the
Dcmocratlo tariff. And tho second 'ar
ticle is like the first. It is that never
ruoro can there bo prosperity in all

ies of tho lato unlamented McKinloy

mourning and lamenting to help along
nnybody'o presidential boom. That
Fort of thing doesn't pay. It la vastly
moro profitable to keep their fires
burning, their wheels humming and
their men employed. "What if tho men
do find out that it Is posslblo for man
ufacturing to prosper and for American

Springfield Republican: Mayor Pin
grec, of Detroit, is clearly a man with
a mesBago which tho people want to
hear. Ho has been making a politico
lecturing trip through Michigan as a

triumphal procession with largo crowds
to listen every time ho opened hla
mouth. He has been greeted overy

Ilia strong point appears to bo that he
cannot only talk nntl-monopoly like

Air for the Con.
Tho English government some time
ago took up tho matter of tho proper
supply of air to cows. It is regarded
ns part of the work of the public health
officers to Inspect all barns and seo
either thnt the buildings aro well ven
tilated or that they are largo enough
to permit of being shut for somo hour
without detriment to tho health of thft
cows. It Is Bald that tho execution ot
tho law has occasioned a great deal of
friction in the country districts of
England. Tho medical officers mako
specifications as to how a barn shall
bo ventilated, or in tho absence of ven
tilation how many cubic feet ot air
may bo given to each animal. Most of
tho barns nro found to fall far below
tho requirements. It is very likely
that investigation would show tho same
condition of things to exist In this
country, though in a less degree.
In fact, some of our barns are bo
poorly built that thoy need neither ven
tilators nor air space, since tho nir haB
freo Ingress and egrcBs through tho
cracks between the boards. To such
as havo tight barns the question is
pertinent Of the two ways mentioned,
giving tho cows more breathing space
would appear better than to vcntllato,
since by the former method all drafts
may bo shut off. When nn animal is
not In the best of condition, a draft of
cold air too frequently proves tho be
ginning of serious and sometimes fatal
Tho creamery man is Interested In
the welfare of his ratrons, whether he
realizes It or not. That Is, their Inter
ests aro so woven together that what
hurts ono hurts tho other. Too often
tho Idea gets Into the head ot tho man
ager of tho stock creamery that his
chief concern is to get his patrona to
sell him milk as cheaply as possible,
60 yearB before the settlement of St.
Augustine In Florida, and 115 years
before tho Pilgrim Fathers Bet foot on
tho shoros of New England. This great
white horse was tho ono ridden by
the knights of that day in those coun
tries. and ho does not care whether the pa
trons mako money or not. In tho end
this course must bo disastrous to the
creamery itself. As the patrons And
out they aro making littlo money they
decrease the number of their cows, or
go out of the buslucss altogether.
It Is to the interest of tho creamery
that n lnrge quantity of milk bo sup
plied, and the richer it Is, the less will
be the loss In separating. It therefore
becomes advlsablo for tho creamery
manager to havo a friendly Interest In
tho cows of his patrons. If ho be am
bitious enough he will stir up his pa
trons to test their cows and do away
with the poor stock. Probably there
are a great many cows in tho list of
nearly ovory creamery that would
yield a profit by being disposed of.

Tow people nro awaro that tho term

back to a poem of perhaps Amorlca's

who distinguish here, aud say that you
may love such nn one. and that, in

you nro good you will love every one;
Out thnt you aro not expected to like
every ono. This, however, seems to be
a distinction without a difference. If
you do not like a person you do not
love him, and if you do not love him
you loathe him. The curious thing in
doing kindness is that it makes you
love people even in this sublimated
sono of liking. When you love an
other you havo made him your brother;
and by tlio same means you enn be a
