. " . .There are many traditions and tlme
'. honored customs at the West Point
'' 'military academy which are held sa-
'."cred by the cadets of that Ideal school
" for soldiers, but it is doubtful if there
is another custom as religiously kept
' : as that of hazing, writes WiUiam E.
'. . Curtis In an article on the military
.. academy. There has always been more
" ' or less hazing at West Point and there
always will be as long as boys will be
. boys, although Col. Mills, the present
superintendent, has succeeded in sup
pressing the practice which has pre-
' . ' vailed there for several years of com
pelling the freshmen to undergo phys
ical exercises at the orders of tne
sophomores and upper class men. It
is difficult to find a cadet of any class
who in his solicitude for the welfare
, m of the institution does not defend haz
"ing as necessary for the proper train
ing and discipline of new cadets when
they enter the academy. They claim
' I that it promotes the esprit du corps and
" the democratic spirit of equality; that
-. . it tames bullies, develops the cour
. age of the timid, restrains those who
: are too active, stimulates those who
' "" lack energy and corrects faults that
" . cannot be cured In any other way. It
is principally applied to those who are
y. vain or "fresh"; those who assume
airs of superiority, and those who are
.; careless about their dress, uncouth in
' " their manners, slouching in their pos
tures and indifferent to the welfare of
others. The military academy Is a little
-republic where the doctrine of equality
. is enforced with more care and zeal
. . than la any other Institution I know.
A cadet who presumes upon the fame
: of his name, the wealth or social posl-
" tlon of his family or his own talents.ls
. . toned down to the level of the average,
! while those who come from the soil
and the slums, as cadets have come.are
toned up to the standard of gentlemen.
I These results are actually accomplish-
. ed by comrades who sometimes allow
. their enthusiasm and zeal to obscure
' their judgment and lead them Into ex
. cesses. Then we hear of it through the
. newspapers. But the transformation of
" , an awkward, uncouth "plebe" into an
T. erect and graceful soldier is generally
. . accomplished quietly within the quad-
rangle and the barracks, screened from
public observation, and Is due quite as
. ". much tothe training of his comrades
' . . as the teaching of his Instructors. The
; result Is apparent to everyone who has
had the opportunity to Inspect a squad
of plebes at the hour of their entrance
and afterward at the grand review at
. the close of their first year at the acad-
!. . emy. There are two kinds of hazing,
. physical and moral The latter is
'known here as "devlling,"and although
. It is not forbidden by the regulations it
; generally tries the soul of a cadet more
than the physical exercises ordered by
his tormentors. When a boy comes
' ' here fre6h from the farm, with hayseed
. .' In his hair, timid and trembling, or
from some famous preparatory school,
.'conceited and confident, his comrades
' of the upper classes take his measure
, as accurately as the tailor who makes
his first uniform or the director of the
' gysanaslum.who after a physical exam-
lnation tells him how he can expand
his chest or broaden his shoulders or
. strengthen the muscles of his arms;
and there Is always sufficient ingenuity
In the "yearling" class to suggest the
proper corrective. This Is the first test
. . . of a cadet's manhood, the first battle of
" the soldier. There Is always a great
difference in the manner in which the
. boys stand their hazing. Thus, some
of the newcomers at the military acad
emy sail smilingly through the ordeal
while the souls of others are sorely
tried. When, however, a freshman be
.. . comes a sophomore and passes into the
pper classes and later receives his
. commission In the army and becomes
.. useful and sometimes famous, he al-
' ways admits that the "deviling" to
which he was subjected did him good
and was as much a part of his traln-
' lag as the Instruction he received from
. taa faculty.
Hew a Dell Averted a War.
A western Indian agent tells this
story of how a doll averted an Indian
war: On one occasion Gen. Crook was
trying to put a band of Apaches back
on their reservation, but could .not
catch them without killing them, and
that he did not wish to do. One day
his men captured a little Indian girl
aid took her to the fort She was
quiet all day, saying not a word, but
her beady black eyes watched every
thing. When night came, however,
she broke down and sobbed, just as
any white child would have done. The
stea tried in vain to comfort her, until
. the ageat had an idea. From an car
eer's wife he borrowed a pretty doll
. that belonged to her little daughter.
and when the Apache was made to un
derstand that she could have it, her
ceased and she fell asleep. When

of getting back to her tribe left her.
Several days passed, and then the

the worse for his experience in the
archipelago, and while he appeared to
have lost some flesh.he seemed to have
improved in health, says the Chicago
Tribune. In speaking of the soldiers
In the Philippines, Gen. Wheeler said:
"Our soldiers have done wonderfully
well. Strong, sturdy, fearless boys they
are, and not a man fears to obey an
order. Under the conditions existing in
the Philippines the work of the troops
has been more than praiseworthy, and
these same volunteers could winin any
battle against any foe. I enjoyed
splendid health all through my cam
paign and have experienced no ill ef
fects. I was favorably impressed with
the Filipinos. They are. In the main.
Intelligent, courteous and kind, and
will make splendid citizens. Only one
sixth of 1 per cent were Induced to
carry arms against us. I think they
are capable of self-government under
certain restrictions. They could be
given the power to make laws under
such a system of government as has
been adopted in our territories, and I
believe they could get along without
friction. There is a wonderful future
for the Philippines. The islands are
rich and In time of peace, with proper
cultivation and with American enter
prise, they will prove immensely
wealthy. It seems to me that there Is
no limit to the possibilities before us,

The boys in gray had fun yesterday
telling jokes on one another. Said a
Tennesseean: "During an engagement
our company, In charging the enemy,
ran into a masked battery. You bet it
made things hot for us, and we lost no
time in getting to the rear. As we
went flying back the colonel of a Mis
sissippi regiment saw us, and dashing
forward and waving his sword, while
he glared scornfully at us, he holloed,
'Make way there and let Mississippi
in.' We made way without explaining,
and the Mississippi boys rushed on the
battery. You bet they started back
too when they found the break they
had made, and then It was our turn
to laugh. As the colonel and the boys
sped past with the sparks flashing
from their heels we yelled, 'Make way
there and let Mississippi out"

work at a time when all growth is at
It Is rather surprising that the secre
taries of horticultural societies do not
show more enterprise in advertising
their meetings. The horticultural so
ciety of one of our large western states
has just held its summer meeting, and
not only were no notices sent to the
agricultural press, but not all of its
members received notice of the meet
ing. This Is an inexcusable blunder.
It not only lessens the attendance on
the meetings, but Is exceedingly an
noying to those that wish to attend and
receive no notice.
A horticulturist advocates a hedge
of the Amur barberry. He says it is
"perfectly free from rust is a dark
green, occupies but little space, is a
very strong bush and spiney enough to

boys." That may be so, but what do
we want of such hedges anyway? The

In preparing the land for grape
vines, plow the ground deeply, and. If
possible, subsoil. Then pulverize the
ground thoroughly to give the small
roots all the chance possible to develop.
It Is best to set the vines not nearer to
gether than 8 feet The holes in which
the vines are set should be each 2 feet
square and from 18 to 20 inches deep.
If a large number of vines are to be
set, the land should be previously
marked off, so that the rows of vines
will be straight both ways; as this
both improves 'the looks of the field
and makes it easier to cultivate. One
grape grower advises to keep the sur
face soil separate from the subsoil
when digging the holes, and to put
back this surface dirt first when filling
up the holes. This will give the roots
a good medium In which to develop.
Onpe well rooted and growing the vine
can send its roots into the less con
genial soil, without experiencing a
back-set In the fall, in regions where
winter protection Is needed, this may
be obtained by plowing a furrow on
each side of the row and throwing the
dirt up toward the vines. In the spring
this dirt must be leveled to admit of
even culture. The vines may be staked
and tied to the stakes till they are two
years old, when they may be fastened
to wires strung between posts.
The Daal Parpose Cow.
There appeared In a recent bulletin
of the Minnesota Experiment Station
some interesting figures that bear on
tbe dual purpose cow, and up to this
time her advocates have not had many
figures to draw from, as few experi
ments have been made in which either
dual purpose breeds or types have had
a place. In this very practical por
tion of the bulletin which deals with
"Feeding Dairy Cows" it Is conclu
sively shown that the average farmer's
ccw may be lifted out of the unprofit
able list and placed on the profit-making
side simply by good care and
proper food.' This does not mean that
scrub cows can be made as profitable
as select cows of the dairy type when
handled rightly, but that their milk
production may be so increased that
they will make money instead of losing
money for their owners. If this is
true, it may be readily admitted that
cows of the dual purpose breeds, or
of dual purpose type, such as the care
ful farmer who does not wish to make
a specialty of dairying would select
would make fair profits as milk pro
ducers, N besides adding something to
earnings by calves of the same type
as their dams, or perhaps better adapt
ed to feeding for beef than their dams.
There Is one other point however,
bearing on the dual purpose cow
which Is important The cow which by
heredity, form and habit uses a por
tion of her food to add to her weight
(taking it out of what a cow of dairy
type would give to milk production)
may be profitable when feed is low In
price and unprofitable when feed is
high. The reason for this is plain.
The Increased cost of the food that
she consumes to add to her own weight
(a waste from the dairyman's stand
point) when bought at high prices,
eats up the net profit of her milk pro
duction, which profit Is reduced by the.
greater cost of the food consumed.

fact which is attracting general in

an improvement in the care taken of

this country are taking such an in

In the Elgin district Illinois, the
state inspectors of cattle are having a
hard time enforcing the law requiring
all cattle brought in from other states
to be inspected and to be declared free
from the disease. Recently a number
of stockmen in the section mentioned
combined to resist the law. The result
was that one of the state inspectors
was ejected from the premises of a
man whose cattle he went to inspect
The matter was taken up by the grand
jury and indictments were returned
against five of the stockmen for im
porting cattle from other states with
out the customary and required inspec
tion. It is certainly to be hoped that
it will be made as hard as possible
for stock owners in other states to
palm off on Illinois farmers their dis
eased stock. Illinois Is making an at
tempt to find out the tuberculous cows,
and prevent their milk and meat
being used for human food. This
inspection will be of little value
