Artichoke! for Ilogt.
Many years ao f wai advlfecd to raise
artichokes for my stock. My first crop
was planted In 1890. Tho yield picked up
was 1,200 bushels per acre or at that
rate. Thoro wero enough to tubers left
in tho ground to re-seed it. Tho pint
hns not been planted since and tho
ground seems to bo full ot thorn. I
keep tho field highly manured and plow
and cultlvato every year. Last year I
raised nearly 1,200 bushels. It Is claimed
by somo that after the first year the
hogs get moro exercise than artichokes,
and that they soon becomo a mean
weed, but I do not find It so when prop
erly cultivated and thinned. Somo nlso
say they aro difficult to eradicate. This
I find no hard task. I know of many
that lost all tho first year. Two men
that bought seed of tho writer and start
ed patches havo not ono now on ac
count of tho sheep breaking Into tho.
patch. Sheep cat off tho tops, and no
tops no tubers. I feed them to my brood
sows Instead of mill feed. Thoy do
flno with llttlo grnln added. All stock
eat them, as do nlso tho poultry. They
mature In the fall when all other vege
tation is at an end, and nro ready In
tho spring as soon as the frost Is out
of the ground. Thawing and freezing
does not Injure them while in tho
ground. I do not know of any other
crop that will glvo bo much good food
as will artichokes.

Chicago Chronicle: Senator Gorman
would appear to better advantage ns a
critic of tho spendthrift policy of the
republican party It ho did not at the
samo tlmo put himself In tho attitude
of nn assailant of tho administration.
When ho states on tho floor of the
senate that at tho opening of this con
gress It was Informed by the executive
that tho condition of the treasury de
manded economy or clso tho country
would bo confronted with either an !n
creaso of tnxntion or the sale of bonds,
he says too much or too little. The
point upon which tho president laid
stress was not tho relation between re
ceipts and oxpendlturcs, but tho rela
tion between tho huge mass of out
standing obligations and the gold re
sorve. What ho declared to be of the
first moment was that congress should
take moasurcs at once to correct this
relation by providing for tho ex
tinguishment of tho demand obliga
tions. What ho said about bonds was
that It would be better to Issue them
for that purposo than to re-lssuo tho
tho demand obligations over nnd over
again, and then Issue bonds for tho
gold with which to redeem them ngaln
and again. Senntor Gorman may have
served his own purpose, but he did not
servo any good purposo by misrepre
senting tho attitude of the executive
on this question.
In arraigning tho republican pnrty
for swelling tho expenditures In order
to provide themselves with an excuse
for restoring McKInloy taxes on Im
ports ho gets upon solid ground, though
oven In doing this ho must needs have
his lllng nt tho administration.
The naval appropriation bill was be
fore tho senate. It contained an Item
providing for the construction of four
moro battleships at an aggregate cost
of $15,000,000, or nn avorago or three
and three-fourths millions per ship.
Mr. Gorman made this his text. Ho did
not see the economy of building four
of these costly ships when tho original
recommendation called for only two.
Whllo tho republicans wero claiming
that tho only thing wrong with the
finances was Insufficient jevenuo to
meet tho expenditures the republicans
wero lavishly Increasing the latter and
nt tho samo tlmo refusing to do any
thing rcaaonablo to Increase the for
mer. Tho navy bill well illustrates one
branch of the stntoment. It appropri
ates, aa Mr. Gormnn said, $51,000,000.
Before the election of Harrison tho ap
propriations for tho navy averaged less
than $21,000,000. Then they increased
to an average of moro than $25,000,000.
Now a Jump to more than doublo that
sum is proposed, or moro than doublo
tho nnnual cost of tho army.
As to tho other part of the stato
nient that tho republicans rofused to
"ifTcreuso tho revenue Mr. Gorman
pointed to tho fnlluro to tako up the
houso tariff bill. Ho hold tho republi
cans responsible, ns they had tho or
ganization of tho senate nnd of tho
finance committee. In this connection
and In answer to republican senators
who claimed they did not control tho
committee Mr. Gormnn made this re
markablo statement:
"Wo warned you that you had not
the power to relievo tho country, and
asked you to Join us In a non-partisan
measure of relief. But our offer was re
jected. You assumed tho task alone.
You also knew you wero without tho
power, unless you got your forces to
gether. You knew thoro could bo no
action, and In my Judgment this pro
posal to relieve the treasury was In
tended as a failure."
Mr. Sherman undertook to deny the
Btntoment, but Mr. Gorman adhered
to It nnd forced what amounted to an
admission that It was true. That Is,
tho republicans refused to enter Into
nn arrangement by which a non-partisan
rovenuo measure could be secured.
Tho only conclusion Is that they have
boon Insincere from tho first in pre
tending that they wero anxious to pro
vldo moro revenue. Tho only conclu
sion Is that their aim l.s to make the
deficit as great as possible by swelling
tho expenditure nnd refusing to mako
up to the traasury tho $30,000,000 lost
by tho decision ngalnst tho republican
income-tax revived by the democrats.
The refusal to tako up the alcohol re
bate tax bill tho other day clenches
this conclusion and demonstrates com
pletely tho hypocrisy of republican
pretensions with respect to relief of the
A'o rerinmieut Policy by Contract.
From an Exchange: Tho present na
tional revenue law contains a pro
vision that when alcohol is used In tho
arts "or In any medicinal or other like
compound" the person so using it, upon
proor thereof, nnd that the tax has
been paid, shall receive a rebate of the
amount of the tax. It was pointed out
when this was pending that it would
open the door to extensive trauds on
the revenue, but congress enacted It.
A houso bill repealed this provision
without providing for payment of ex
isting claims of rebate. Tho senate
has refused to consider 'ho bill, leav
ing tho claims to accumulate and lay
ing tho foundation for frauds and raids
on tho treasury galore.
I And now comes an unco guid and
' rigidly righteous republican organ and
sets up that the government Is in honor
bound to pay these claims. Also that
It is In honor bound to pay duties on
sugar, although tho bountv luw has
been repealed. The doctrine set up Is
thus Btated: "No matter what may
havo been tho promises or agreements
of a past congress, when they havo
once boon accepted and acted upon by
the peoplo they should be adhered to by
all succeeding congresses."
According to this doctrine tho most
odious system of bounties and tnxos
for prlvato revenue could bo fastened
upon the country In porpotulty. That
will not do. No congress can bind a
future congress to an economic policy.
If a congress attompts to bind Its suc
cessors to a bad policy such as the
policy of taxing all the people to enable
a few to live in palaces It is the duty
of the very next congress to rip that
robbers' contract up the back. If tho
government actually receives some
thing, either In services or cash for
which a congress agrees to pay a stipu
lated sum or sums, subsequent con
grcspess are Justly bound to the per
formance of the contract. But govern
ment gets nothing in exchange for a
bounty or for a protectlvo tariff tax,
nor doc3 It deprive the citizen of any
thing when it says It will relievo him
of the tax on a certain artlclo If ho
uscb It for certain specified purposes.
Thero Is no repudiation, therefore, in
repealing a bounty, a protective tax, or
such a rebate enactment as that con
tained in the act of 1894. No congress
has n right to create a favored class
nnd placo it beyond tho reach of future
congresses, not oven by employing tho
form of solemn contract.
"renlon Hill Safe."
Chicago Chronicle: 'Tension bill Is
safe. Anxiety of thousands of old
soldiers 13 relieved." A Chicago re
publican organ Is delighted to make
this announcement In a very loud type.
Tho Implication is that tho enemy has
been in hot pursuit of tho old soldiers
and that, thanks to a patriotic republi
can house, he has been Intercepted and
The purport of tho bill is sufficiently
explained by tho remark of Represen
tative Pickler that it "will relieve the
anxieties of old soldiers all over the
country who have seen their fellow
pensioners deprived of their pensions
unjustly and arbitrarily by the officials
ot the pension bureau." That explains
sufficiently tho animus of tho bill and
the motive for introducing and pushing
it at this time. Tho purposo is to mako
peoplo bcllovo that pensioners aro "de
prived" of their pensions unjustly and
arbitrarily" by tho officials of tho
administration and so Injure the demo
cratic party. And democrats in the
house aro weak enough to vote for the
bill knowing this to bo tho purpose.
Every man of sense knows that there
Is not n word of truth In tho charge
that men aro unjustly an1 arbitrarily
deprived of their pensIon,.-.Some effort
has been mado to purge Ihe rolls of
frauds who never did a thing to earn
a pension. This effort has not been
made arbitrarily, but lawfully. It is a
wanton insult to the head of tho pen
sion bureau, who was. a faithful soldier
and 13 an honest man, to insinuato that
ho has ever dropped a name arbitrarily
from the pension rolls or willfully ex
punged one that ought to be there or
had a right to bo there under the
Tho republicans In congress know
this perfectly. Thoy nro at the old
game, which ha3 been worked repeat
edly slnco the peoplo began to get tired
of tho republican party In 1874, of loot
ing the treasury In tho name of patriot
Ism for party advantage.
As long ago as 1871, when tho pen
sion charge was $33,077,3S4, General
Garfield, who3C committee had charge
of the subject, declared that tho maxi
mum had been reached and that from
that tlmo forward a progressive de
crease In tho charge was to be expect
ed. Other ox-army officers In congress,
and General Grant, who was then
president, expressed themselves to the
Bnme effect. Garfield and Grant de
clared that the laws were liberal and at
tho time no dissent from this view was
expressed by any one. By 1878 the
charge had fallen below $27,000,000.
But the republicans wero losing their
grip and set about making thomselves
solid with tho ex-soldiers. Tho year
following 1878 tho chargo Increased to
$33,800,000, round figures; next year It
Jumped to $37,200,000. By and by it
was discovered that political fences
could be mended by voting moro money
for pensions pensions to men who left
tho service sounder than they entered
and the chargo mounted in 1893 to
5158,155.000. That year the total was
swollen by tho payment of arrears to
n largo amount, and the chargo has
dropped back to about $110,000,000 a
year, or enough to cover tho entire cost
of the United States standing army for
nearly or quite six years.
There Is no reasonable excuse for
this, but once more congress is finding
something to do for tho ex-soldier and
moro to do for tho republican party,
and democrats are aaaljtlng In tho
business from cowardly fear of being
misunderstood If they do what they
know ought to be done and take a firm
stand against any further raiding of
the treasury upon the fatae pretense of
llrltUli Prosperity with Frea Trade.
Boston Globe: Next fait the high
protection stumpers will be warning
their beloved fellow-citizens against
free trade England. Yot Great Brit
ain, beleaguered by all tho protective
powers ot the earth and having no pro
tection ot her own with which to de

of prosperity that Is the envy of many
nations. It will be incumbent upon the
extremist in protective matters to ex
plain this showing next fall. None of
the republican Journals aro now at
tempting to account for it. Tho fact
is that Groat Britain has been diligent

It Is an accepted fact that what
ever conditions affect tho agricultural
Intorests of a country will have a direct
bearing on all Its other industries. In
other words, whatever tonds to aid, or
lnjuro farming pursuits, will benefi
cently or disastrously affect every other
Important interest. It 1b a matter for
congratulation, thereforo, that excep
tionally favorablo reports nro coming
cast regarding the outlook for n splen
did crop in the corn belt region.
Copious rains had fallen during tho
spring and put the ground in splendid
condition for seeding and growing. Tho
fears of another drouth have long since
been laid to rest nnd tho agriculturist
looks hopefully forward to a rich re
ward for his toil. Not only does tho
farmBrexpect a good crop this year,
but the conditions thus far, have been
so much moro favorablo than in several
years past, that he expects a crop which
will fully mako up for a fow short ones.
Nor Is the expectation without reason.
There is not a single condition lacking,
cither In boII or weather, which Bhould
bring this hope to tho farmer. The soli
has received moro moisture In tho
shape of rain and snow than in many
years and the weather has been all that
could bo desired for growing. There
fore, if all theso signs count for any
thing they indlcato a year of pros
perity throughout tho great West. Even
before tho first week In May almost half
the corn was planted, with considerable
of It showing nicely nbovo ground and
doing well. In many localities It was
oven then soveral Inches high. As
there will undoubtedly be an Increased
acreage of both corn and small grains
this year, the Indications nre that tho
spring work will not bo well over before
the last week In May. This, however,
will be early enough In the corn belt
region to allow the golden ears to ripen
beforo frost comes, even If it should
como a little earlier than usual.
As the rainfall has been fairly fre
quent in its visitations during the por
tion of the season which has passed and
fully up to normal, It is but fair to as
sume that this normal condition will
continuo and that the hopes of tho
farmers will be fully realized.
Reports from widely different locali
ties In the great corn producing states
point to the fact that moisture has
saturated the soil to a much greater
depth than in many previous years.
This Is particularly true with regard
to Nebraska where the favorable out
look of tho present time has not, in
many parts of the state, been excelled,
oven In the opinion of old Inhabitants.
In fact the prospect Is so encouraging
that the farmers all over tho state aro
lotting go their corn and grain to which
they had been holding so tenaciously
slnco last harvest, in the dread that
tho drouth period was not at an end.
They are" now snipping It eastward in
big quantities or feeding it to their
stock aud fattening pigs for the market.
The bulletins issued by the various
state sections of tho (U. S.) Weather
service confirm the glad tidings, gener
ally, so that taken all in all the outlook
of good times for the western farmer is
exceedingly encouraging. The bulletin
relating to Nebraska, for the week end
ing May 4, contained the following:
"The week has been warm, averaging
from four to six degree3 above the nor
mal. Light frosts wore reported from
the southwestern portion of tho state
early In the week, but little If any
damage was done to fruit. The rain
fall has been very general and for tho
mast part heavy, amounting to over two
inches over most of tho eastern half of
the state and in limited localities in tho
western. On tho night of tho 27th and
on the 28th a general and heavy rain
storm passed over the ptate, accom
panied by high winds. This was fol
lowed by showers nearly every day in
the week In the northeastern section
and work has been much retarded
throughout this as well as the middle
section of the state by tho wet condi
tion of the soli. The weather has been
very favorable for the growth of vege
tation, especially small grain and grass,
which have made very vigorous growth
during the week. Rye 13 beginning to

is reported from six Inches In height in

"In southern counties considerable

pleted In tho southeastern cornor of tho
stato; elsewhere but llttlo progress has
been mado during the week owing to
wet weather."
During the past week there has been
on exhibition In a window of the nitv
Ticket office of tho Burlington road at
Chicago, a samplo of rye plucked In
Furnas county, Nebraska, toward the
end of April. It stood 33 to 34 inches
high and was even at that early date
nicely headed. Alfalfa about the samo
tlmo was kneo high and small grains
were looking exceptionally advanced

newspapers realizing the close tie that
binds it to the west havo dilated at
frequent dates on the favorablo pros

yer, a doctor, a dentist, or even a drug
gist," unless legally qualified. Tho
words "even a druggist" have proved a
bitter pill in many chemists' shops.
Ono chemist who has written to 1110
thinks that I am laboring under a
wrong impression as to the training
"the much-abused druggist" has to un
dergo, and incloses mo a syllabus of
tho subjects of which ho is required to
show a sufficient knowledge before be
ing admitted to tho hicrh cstato of tho
registered chemist and druggist, and
becoming endowed with a monopoly of
vending a few poisons. Ho asks mo to
como to tho conclusion that ho may
clnim an equality with, if not prece
dence of a, qualit'cd dentist London
body nt this season. The hustlers ceascto
push, tho tircles3 grow weary, tho ener
getic become enervated. You know just
what wo mean. Somo men and women
endeavor temporarily to overcome that
Feeling by great forco of will. But this
is unsafe, ns it pulls powerfully upon tho
nervous system, which will not long stand
such strain. Too many people " work on
their nerves," and the result is seen in un
fortunate wrecks marked "nervous pros
tration," in every direction. That tired
Ing is n positive proof of thin, weak, im
pure blood; for, if tho blood is rich, red,
vitalized nnd vigorous, It imparts life and
energy to every nerve, organ and tissuo
of tho body. Tho necessity of taking
Hood's Sarsnparilla for that tired feeling
is, therofore, apparent to every one, and
the good it will do you is equally beyond
question. Remember that
