Tnc Omaha World-Herald proposes
a scheme for democratic success, thus:
"The alliance to namo and the demo
cratic party to indorse a state ticket.
The democratic party lo name and the
alliance to indorse the three congress
men, lwth organizations to bend every
energy to the election of the joint ticket
so formed." The alliance, as an organiz
ation, repudiates political action. Indi
vidual members are independent in this
regard, and cannot lie transferred liodily
or otherwise, at the dictate of party
managers. Co-alitions resting solely
upon the division of official plums and
not upon principle, avail but little. The
dominant political party of this state is
the republican. The motive power in
that party is the lalmring element,
whenever they choose to exert their
power. Let that element control the
party management, as they can do, and
their "labor of love' is almost accomp
lished. Let those of the alliance who
are democrats or prohibitionists, do the
same with respect to their parties, and
thus all will have done their level best.
A fourth new party to lie formed now,
looks unwise; a union of alliance men
with the democratic party, merely for
the purpose of bringing success to some
three democratic politicians who want to
go to congress, exchanging for the same
a state ticket composed of alliance men,
will not meet the approval of enough
voters iu either wing of such a political
bird to give it body, head or tail, or ren
der it coherent in any respect. Onr
friend Hitchcock has suggested a very
improbable possibility. The wish that
it might be so is father to the thought
that it could be so. "Run, Tolg Fraid, or
little Fraid will catch you."
The Bloody Third.
Hon. G. D. Meiklejohn of Fullerton is
credited with an ambition to be con
gressman in the Third district to suc
ceed Mr. Dorsey. Some republicans
really opposed to Mr.Dorsey's succeeding
himself, have expressed themselves as
inclined to think that a delegation with
Meikeljohn overcoats, means a delega
tion with Dorsey dress suits. Between
times. The Journal may be excused for
remarking that Brad Slaughter, also of
Fullerton, is among the shrewdest oli
ticians in the state, and doubtless knows
what is going on. The truth is, how
ever, that the political situntion in Ne
braska is more than usually "shaky."
If real candidates were as thick as
blackberries they would be exceedingly
loath to be at the expense of making a
heated nominating campaign in the big
Third against Mr. Dorsey, who is known
to be a first-class " rustler," especially
in the face of the fact that there are two
such disturbing elements as the prohibi
tionists and the alliance to be reckoned
on this time as taking a very active part in
settling the question of election, if they
do not, indeed, cut a figure in the nom
ination. The situation is so strained
that it is little wonder we hear of no
ardent campaign for the nomination by
men usually regarded as politicians.
The fobs are Xo tiood.
Our general stock of information is
made up of a multitude of facts. When
farmers and stock raisers get together
and discuss their business among them
selves, they invariably learn something
that is of value to them in dollars and
cents those who know being confirmed
in their good opinions, or more forcibly
impressed with their importance, while
those who have been ignorant receive
light altogether new to them. It seems
now universally conceded that there is
no profit in raising anything but a choice
line of cattle for the market, but there
have been conflicting opinions as to the
best feed for fattening. The South
Omaha Stockman of a recent date con
Several feeders were discussing the
best methods of fattening cattle and
while they differed on some points they
all agreed that cobs were no benefit to
stock. Said one. "it stands to reason
that anything as tongh and indigestible
as a corn cob taken into an animal's
stomach -can do no good even if not a
positive injury. I can take any man who
is not prejudiced on a trip through the
country and prove to his satisfaction
that the feeding of crushed corn, cob and
all, is far from being the best method,"
Give me," said another, "good shelled
corn with clear, bright hay for roughness
and I will take it every time in prefer
ence to anything else." On the hay
question there was some difference of
opinion, some prefering good timothy
hay, others millet, while some recom
mended flax straw.
To the minds of those posted, there
seems to be no great obstacle in the way
of tobacco culture 'in this state and-
county. For years patches of tobacco
have been grown by a few Bohemian
families in this county and the growth
has been luxuriant. If we can success
fully grow the raw-material, why can it
not be manufactured right here as well
as at other places? Anyway, beet sugar

SECRETARY RUSK'S CIRCULAR.
Cotiwm of Agrirltaral Depression anil Pwi-
Mr RtMtdiM-Wfcat Xat lie Done
by the Fanaer.
Hon. J. M. Busk, secretary of agricul
ture, has issued the following circular:
For months past from all part a of the
country, there have reached me many
communications, many of them from
large bodies of men. all of them from
persons deserving consideration, and all
of them deeply in earnest respecting the
present condition of agricultural de
pression. In most cases the commnnica
tions suggest the conviction of the wri
ters, not only as to the gravity of the
emergency, not as to its cause or causes
and possible remedies, and all of them
appeal to me for soae expression of my
views on the subject. To answer each
one of these communications separately
would, ba morn 4han anv nno man pan
undertake to do, and, moreover, 'i am
reluctant to send out an expression of
my views in letters covering merely a
phase or a portion of the questions in
volved, ouch a course would be unjust
to myself and to those who address me.
I can only consent to express my views,
such as they are, on the entire question,
reviewing the whole subject and consid
ering it in all its various phases.
The present agricultural depression, it
seems to me, can be traced to a combi
nation of many causes, so many that
probably no one man can enumerate
them all. I will only endeavor to point
out some which seem to me more direct
ly responsible. They may bo divided
into two classes, first: Those causes
inherent to the farmers themselves, and
for which they alone can provide a pos
sible remedy. Second: Those over which
the farmer himself has no direct control,
and the remedy for which must be pro
vided as far as remedy is possible, by
law, and for such legislation the re
sponsibility devolves upon the legisla
tive bodies of the state and of the nation.
what the farmers must do,
I will confine myself to a mere enu
meration of the first class of causes in
dicated. On many farms I regret to say
we find a depreciation of the productive
power of the land due to careless cul
ture. We find a want too often of
business-like methods, due to the fact
that in earlier times business training
was not regarded as an essential prepa
ration for the farmer's work, whereas
today with altered conditions, when ev
ery penny, and I may say every moment
of time has to be profitably accounted
for and in the face of world-wide com
petition, a successful fanner must lie as
well trained and careful in business as
the store-keeper, and bis equal in intelli
gence and general education. Nor are
the important questions of supply and
demand of market prices studied with
the vigilance which characterizes the
methods of our merchants and manufac
turers. These last moreover have the
advantage of transacting their business
in immediate prorimity to trade centers,
wnere ine wiuesi, iniormaiion in reier
ence thereto is readily obtainable. Onr
farmers' organizations are wisely seeking
to supplement this want for the farmer;
the agricultural press is earnestly work
ing" inlhe'same direction and one of the
most important duties devolving upon
this department consists in gathering
and promptly distributing reliable in
formation on all these subjects whion
are essentially interesting to the farmer,
It remains for him to avail himself of
the information thus supplied as his
chief protection not only against over
supply of certain products, but against
possible over-reaching on the part of
purchasers. The farmer must look with
suspicion upon any attempts to abridge
the sources of his information. His ad
vantage will always be in the fullest
knowledge of the facts. He must care
fnlly study the character and the quality
of his products rather than mere 'quanti
ty, and always bear in mind that, wheth
er prices are high or low, it is always the
best goods at the best obtainable prices
that are the most readily sold. Many of
our farmers hare been land-greedy and
find tbemselres the owners of more land
than they can properly care for in view'
of the comparatively high price of labor
in the rural districts and in view of the
fact that but a small portion of man
kind, comparative!-, can profitably con
trol the labor of others. The prudent
farmer will limit his efforts to that
which he can efficiently perform. Again,
more attention must be given, espe
cially on oar western farms, to the
raising by the farmer. for his own use
everything that may be utilized by him
self and household as far as soil and
climate will permit.
The burden of mortgages upon farms,
homes and lands is unquestionably dis
couraging in the extreme, and while in
some eases no dount una loaa may nave
been too readily assumed, still in the ma
jority of cases, the mortgage has been the
result or necessity, i except, of course.

enterprise than of his poverty. On the
other hand, those mortgages with which
land has been encumbered from the
necessity of its owner, drawing high
rates of iuterest, often taxed in addition
with a heavy commission, have today, in
tueiaceot continued depression in the legitimate province or national legisla
prices of staple products, liecome very tt ion. The great difficulty lies in the

dollar wherewith to pay back the dollar
he borrowed than it did when ho lior-
rowed it. The interest accumulates,
while payment of the principal seems
utterly hopeless, and the very depres
sion which we are discussing makes the
renewal of the mortgage most difficult.
jiany people are uis-ioseu to associate
this phase of the subject with the ques-
tion of an undue limitation of our cur
rency. Many carry this line of argument
to extremes, but it is bv no means im
possible that these subjects are corehi
ted. However, the question of currency
is now receiving special attention from
another branch of the government; leg
islation on this subject is now pending
before congress and we can no donbt
look for an early and satisfactory solu
tion of this vexed problem.
The question of transportation is one
of profound interest to the American
farmer. The trouble begins near home,
between the farm and the nearest rail
road station. It would be difficult to
estimate the amount of loss in time and
labor, in depreciation and wear and tear
of horses and conveyances, entailed upon
the farmers by the wretched condition
of country roads before arriving at the
station; he there meets the vexed ques
tion of freight rates, a difficult one to
settle satisfactorily to all parties under
any circumstances, but in many cases
still further complicated by the condi-
liii'i if hub i 1i ulijJrnTf? nyew XT-it
of the roads were built at a time and
under conditions that greatly enhanced
their cost. Competing lines built under
more favorable circumstances, present
comparisons of inequality which often
seem like injustice, and on the other
hand it must not be forgotten that many
roads are over-taxing their constituents
in an effort to secure dividends upon a
total of capital and bonded debt, a por
tion of which is purely fictitious. That
many roads fail to pay any dividends at
all, while the total profits of the rail
roads throughout the country represent
but a comparatively small dividend upon
the actual cost of construction, plant
and equipment, still in no wise palliates
the grievous wrong of attempting to
secure a profit upon fictitious values. It
is still too early to suggest any import
ant modifications in the inter-state com
merce law. A fuller trial is needed to
judge properly of its effects and to sug
gest judicious amendments. The con
dition of our agriculture is such that a
large proportion of our farmers must
depend upon facilities for reaching dis
tant markets, and the law will hardly
accomplish its purpose of securing the
greatest number, if its ultimate result
should be to raise the cost of the long
haul. Its most valuable office will lie to
prevent injustice by forbidding the
granting by the railroads of special priv
ileges to certain classes or corporations,
which are denied to the community at
the middle man.
Another cause operating to depress
the price of the farmer's honest toil, is
the undue increase of the class of middle
men and the dishonesty and greed of
many of them. Hence the wide gulf
lietween the high prices charged to the
consumer, and the low prices paid to the
producer. The middle man within cer
tain limits must le regarded as a neces
sity. There are many things he can do
for the farmers which the latter cannot
do so profitably for themselves, and un
der such conditions it is wise to employ
him. The evil which exists at the pres
ent day in this direction could undoubt
edly be mitigated by, first, a familiarity
on the part of the farmer himself with
the njnFket value of that which he has
to sell, and second, a better system, of
co-operation among the farmers both in
the disposal of their crops, and fn the
purchase of their supplies.
gamrlino in farm products.
Few there are but are familiar with
and deplore the conversion of our ex
changes ami boards of trade, originallv
designed for the encouragement and
convenience of legitimate trading, into
vast gambling places, fraught with the
gravest danger to the country at large,
but of which the farmer, whose products
are thus made the toy and plaything of
the game, is the immediate and chief
sufferer. The frequent and extreme
fluctuations of price occasioned by The
operation of irresponsible speculators is
the bane of the producer, whose best
interests will ever be served by the
maintenance of a firm and reliable mar
ket. To the allegation, not infrequently
made, that if at times prices are thus
unduly depressed, there are also times
when they are unduly raised, there is a
simple reply. As already asserted, .not
only are fluctuation and uncertainty the
bane of the producer, but the specula
tive combinations which result in unduly
raising or depressing prices are carefully
calculated to raise them when the goods
are no longer in the producer's hands
and to depress them when thev are.
Unquestionably legislation is needed to
remedy this evil and it should ho based
on the principle that the evil is n6l a
necessary one, requiring legislation, but
an utterly inexcusable tine, to be cured
Much has been said and written alleg
ing the existence of unlawful combina
tions for the express purpose of 'con
trolling the markets as to lower the price
of the farmer's products, and of other
combinations whose object it is to raise
the price of the articles which the farm
er consumes. That such combinations
exist it is impossible to doubt, and 'the

matter of interstate commerce, that its
! regulation may possibly fall within the
i attainable save as they infringe upon
the legitimate rights of others. In spite
of these difficulties, however, there can
not lie any doubt that an earnest demand
for adequate legislation on this subject,
sustained by popular opinion, receiving
the earnest attention of onr strongest
( minds, will eventually result in some
adequate means of controlling this
protection for the farmer.
I now come to the consideration of
one of the gravest causes in my opinion
of the present 'agricultural depression,
but which 1 am happy to state can be
effectually and directly dealt with"
through national legislation. Few peo
ple realize that our imports of agricul
tural products estimated at prices pa'id
by the consumers are about equal to
agricultural products estimated at prices
paid to the farmer, yet such is the case.
Our imports of products sold in compe
tition with those actually produced on
our own soil, amotnt to nearly S115,000,
000 and as much more could be produc
ed on our own soil under favorable con
ditions. We must surely conclude that
we have here another cause of depres
sion. Washington Letter.

panion, on "how to cure a cold," the
writer advises a hot lemonade to be tak
et at bed time. It is a dangerous treat-
ment, especially during the severe cold
weamer oi me winter monins, asu opens
the pores of the skin and leaves the sys
tem in such a condition that another and
much more severe cold is almost certain
to be contracted. Many years constant
nse and the experience of thousands of
persons of all ages, has fully demonstrat
ed that there is nothing better for a
severe cold than Chamberlain's Cough

with nature, relieves the lungs, liquefies
the tough tenacious mucous, making it
easier to expectorate, and restores the
system to a strong and healthy condi
tion. Fifty cent bottles for safe by all i
