The Tortariag- Feed Bag
One of the animal tortures of the
dayis the feed bag that is pulled over
a horse's nose, as if it were a muzzle,
and supported by a rope or strap over
his head, asserts an observing writer.
When the breathing holes become
clogged with oats or corn on a hot and
humid day the victim's suffering-must
be intense. Besides, it is poor econ
omy, as a horse wastes nearly as much
M3 he eats by the act of tossing the
bag up to get a mouthful.

Ella Wheeler Wilcox In Hajper's
Pretty Mory ot Gea. Harrisea.
The late General Harrison was wide
ly respected, admired and esteemed.
He could, moreover, make warm
friends and keep them. Nevertheless,
he had not what Is considered a win
ning personality except to children.
A born child lover, children instinc
tively knew and loved him for their
friend. A prettier campaign anecdote
seldom found its way into print than
that, recently retold and worth retell
ing of how he unconsciously converted
an opponent into a partisan. In a fam
ily of strong Republican principles
there was a little daughter, Emily, only
4 years old, but of an exceptionally
quick mind and fair spirit. This little
lady picked up enough understanding
of the presidential campaign then in
progress to know that there were two
candidates for office, General Harrison
and Mr. Cleveland, and to observe in
her household what struck her as un
fair favoritism toward Mr. Harrison.
He was always commended; Mr. Cleve
land was always decried. In a spirit of
childish championship for the "under
dog," she constituted herself, much to
the family's amusement and a little to
their vexation, the friend of the Demo
cratic candidate, and whenever others
praised or cheered Harrison, she would
promptly hurrah for the neglected
Cleveland. Before the contest was over,
her family took her with them to In
dianapolis to visit friends who were al
so lifelong friends of Harrison, and
who took them all to call upon the
prospective president. General Harri
son was delighted with the youngest of
his guests, and devoted himself especi
ally to her pleasure. He took her on
his knee, talked with her. told her
stories, and wholly captivated her
warm little heart. When the call ended,
Emily reluctantly, and on the steps
outside she suddenly stopped and re
fused to go any farther.
"I want to see him!" she said obstin
ately. "But you have seen him," said her
mother. "We must go now; it would
not be polite to stay any longer."
"I want to see him!" Emily insisted;
but she would give no reason, and
neither would she give up her request.
Just then General Harrison saw her
through the open door and perceived
that she was hesitating and had some
thing on her mind. He came out, and
stooping down and taking her hand,
"What is it, Emily?"
Emily looked up into his face, and
answered, in the faintest little quaver
"Hurrah for Harrison!"
Her abrupt conversion from Demo
crat to Republican was explained to
him, and no compliment that he ever
received touched, amused and delight
ed him so much. He kissed his newi
partisan and thanked her, and they
were firm friends thereafter.
Salute at St. TIiobm.
The latest yarn about the negotia
tions between the United States and
Denmark as to the future of the Dan
ish West Indies has just been told and
denied. It came via London from
Copenhagen and was promptly
squelched at Washington. It brings
into notice a peculiar condition pre
vailing down in the Caribbean Sea.
The story said that if Denmark was
not to sell the islands the United
States would insist that St. Thomas
be fortified. In a way, the beautiful
little harbor of Charlotte Amalie at
St. Thomas is fortified now. At least
there is a fort there and it is gar
risoned by Danish troops. It is almost
a landlocked harbor, and on the high
headland at its entrance there Is a
signal yard and -an observer who is
constantly alert to sight while they are
still far at sea the large number of
ships of all kinds and all countries
which make the port a busy place.
When the signal shows that a foreign
man-of-war ;s making for the harbor,
as one often does, the port being free
and an excellent coaling place, one of
the soldiers of the garrison gets him
self in readiness to-fire the return sa
lute to the visitor when she shall have
fired the requisite number of guns in
honor of the Danish flag, which may
he seen, rising to her peak as she
steams up the harbor. The little ex
change of amenities may never be
omitted, and they say down at St.
Thomas that these salutes cost the
uanish government more for powder
nd the necessary garrison mainten
ance than the total of the government
receipts from the island.

day of the battle she drew and carried
water from the windlass well, and
filled the canteens of the Union sol

the awful din of the battle. For thirty
eight years her grave has remained un

Charley Walters is a country boy
whose parents live near Topeka. At the
outbreak of the Spanish war he en
listed In the Twentieth Kansas and
after serving with that regiment, re
enlisted in the Thirty-sixth Volunteers.
In one of the. Philippine battles he
was wounded three times, one bullet
striking him in the forehead and pass
ing around behind the ear, where it
emerged. This wound was a great puz
zle to the army surgeons, as the bullet
cracked the skull at the place of exit,
instead of the place of entrance. How
ever, young Walters quickly recovered
from his injuries and was back on the
firing line in less than a month, and
he came home with his regiment
something like three months ago. On
arriving he invested his savings in
some horses and implements and en
gaged in the business of farming. He
put out a crop of corn and apparently
was well content with his new employ
ment. Oil Decoration Day he put on
his old uniform, pinned on his medals
and went to Topeka to celebrate the
day. He marched in the procession,
saw the flags waving, listened to the
cannon, heard the bugles sound, and
drank in the air of patriotism. And
that night he boarded a train for Fort
Riley, enlisted in an artillery regiment,
and is now on his way to the Philip
pines. Kansas City Journal.

A writer in the Novoe Vremya tells
how, when Alexander, prince of Bul
garia, asked the Russian minister of
war to lend Bulgaria 300 non-com mis
sioned officers to instruct his army, the
Russian general replied that Russia
had not 30o non-commissioned officers
to lend, but he could lend Bulgaria 300
generals, if that would do as well. This
recalls the story President Lincoln
used to tell during the civil war of the
man in Washington who threw a stick
out of the window of his hotel and
knocked over six brigadiers, and "it was
not a good day for brigadier generals,
either." Another story of like purport
is that of Lincoln's saying, when some
of his mules and a brigadier general
were captured in a raid near Washing
ton, he did not mind the brigadier, be
cause he could easily make another,
but the mules were valuable.

W. C. Calkins, in ah address before
tke Galesburg poultry association,
thus tells ot his first experience in
I woke up one morning with $4,000
and an idea. I still have the idea. It
was this I learned from observation
that the average hen could make a
table d'hote dinner off a manure heap
and lay an egg every working day. I
also learned that this proud city of
ours was entirely at the mercy of a
few indifferent, non-union hens, dis
tributed among the farmers round
about, for its supply of fresh sweet
scented eggs. Putting the two to
gether (the money and the idea), I
thought I saw a chance to promote an
industry which would rival John D.
Rockefeller's oil plant when it came
to a matter of declaring dividends. It
was evident that there was nothing
to do but collect a large choice com
pany of fowls, give them a happy
home, and then lean hack iU my boun
teous office chair and softly murmur,
"Lay on, McDuff," or whatever their
various names happened to be.
I, therefore, purchased a tract of
rolling prairie. It was covered with
a heavy growth of green, blue grass,,
shaded in spots by stately elms and
flowering catalpas, and Irrigated by a
sparkling, babbling brooklet It was
a spot that would make a hen's life
one long dream of happiness. It was
a resort that would have coaxed eggs
out of the most barren prospects. It
was here I built a chicken house of
such mammoth proportions that it re
sembled a snowshed on the Northern
Pacific. It was built on the most im
proved plan of architecture. I gath
ered my ideas from personal visits to
all the poultry farms In the country
that were worth while, and every time
I visited a new one I came home and
changed my plans. There was an en
tire suite of rooms for every particu
lar grade of chickenkind. There were
drawing rooms for the aristocratic
and hospitals for the feeble. There
was a souvenir building for the Ply
mouth Rocks; there were temples for
the Brahmas, improved foot-baths for
the White Leghorns and china closets
for the Cochin Chinas. I hired a small
boy to do the scratching for them, so
they might sleep during the early
morning hours. I built a stable for
my horse and delivery wagon, sunk a
well, fitted up an office and bought a
burglar-proof safe in which to keep
the eggs pending a rise in price. Then
I began to look around for tenants.
This was difficult At that time all
hens looked alike to me. I was com
pelled to take the seller's word as to
their pedigree and habits. I have
since learned that hens, as a rule, do
not always carry out the agreements
of their former owners.
After getting into touch with every
man In Illinois who had a hen he was
willing to part with, I secured enough
to open up business. The first roll
call showed 375 present Statistics
show that one energetic hen will lay
one egg a day, on an average. I did
not have an average around the place,
so I substituted a good, soft well up
holstered nest for each one of the 375.
In a short time, through the courtesy
of a dozen haughty roosters which I
introduced among those present and
with the help of two steam-heated In
cubators, I swelled the total number
to 1,260. Then I felt that my troubles
were at an end. I had spent enough
money to supply the town with eggs
for years at Easter prices. I had pur
chased everything from satchet pow
der for the prevention of lice to ground
bone for aiding their digestion. I
bought drinking fountains, hovers,
footbaths, steam heaters and egg
cases. I naturally supposed that it
was all over but putting the income in
the bank. I was hugging the delu
sion. It soon developed into a prop
osition of stupendous proportions. My
health began to fail and my placid
brow, on which my earlier year3 of
struggle had left no mark, became as
corrugated as a washboard.
I decided to secure a manager for
my planf, one who knew the hen busi
ness, and give myself a needed vaca
tion. I employed a man who. came to
me well recommended by himself. He
claimed he had made the chicken
business a life study; that he. was on
speaking terms with every hen in'
Knox county; that he knew every ill
that chicken flesh is heir to; knew all
their little troubles, their faults and
their accompaniments. When I
thought of all he said he knew, I
wondered how I got him so cheap.
As soon as he entered the place he be
came a universal favorite. Day after
day the hens grew more fond of him.
They would eat from his hand, climb
upon his knee and permit him to
shampoo them and manicure their toe
nails. I turned the whole business
over to him and went away on a two
months' vacation, thinking that the
next hen census would show a re
markable increase, and that the abso
ute control of the egg market of the
world would be in my grasp. But I
reckoned without my host, also with
out my manager. When I returned to
the scene of my labors, bringing with
me the latest style of cash register to
figure up the profits, I found out o!
1,260 happy, well-contented hens, only
27. were gathered to welcome me. My
manager assured me that the great
majority had passed into the dim,
Some Good Advice.
The buttermaker in an eastern co
operative creamery sends out to the
patrons a circular from which we make
extracts as follows:
Gentlemen Another year has almost
passed. Has it been a profitable one?
Do you think I am doing my best to
serve you? I am trying to. Are you
all doing your part? I fear not The
larger number of you are doing well;
you bring your milk to the creamery
nicely strained in bright, clean cans,
and it Is a pleasure to a buttermaker
to receive it as from such milk he can
make a quality of butter that will sell
for the top price in any market But
others, I am sorry to say, do not take
proper care of their milk and do not
bring it to the creamery in proper
shape. A great deal of milk is brought
in dirty cans, not strained at home,
and no effort made to keep straws or
filth out of it Some of the cans look
as if seldom or neyer washed and a
sticky filth may be scraped off of them,
both inside and outside. Do you ex
pect that I can make good butter out
of such milk? I cannot; neither can
anyone else. I can strain the milk, run
it through the separator, but no but
termaker on earth can remove the
tainted and filthy smell that milk gets
from unclean barns or bad smelling
Bat yon will say: "I get as stucn
for sty milk as say neighbor who takes
extra car of hte milk while I doa't
care how It reaches the creasaery. I
dump it In the weigh can and letter go
Gallagher." But you are mistaken.
Your milk will not test so well and,
besides, every can of poor milk that
goes into the weigh can redness the
average price of milk at the cream
ery. Some of our patrons would e
horrified if they saw the dirt and filth
I remove from my strainer and separa
tor. Does anybody think that a bar
of soap, a chunk of stable manure, po
tatoes, dish rags, hair pins, pan cakes,
soaking In your milk can over night or
longer will improve the flavor ot milk?
I have found all of the above, and more
In the strainer of the weigh can. How
can good butter be made from such
milk? If I should grade the milk In
two lots and make butter from each
lot separately, giving each lot the same
attention, would you expect each lot
to sell for the same price? If you did
you would be disappointed. The but
ter made from the poor milk would sell
for one-half as much as that from the
No buttermaker on earth can change
the flavor, tf milk is off flavor the
butter will be. When you send your
jar to the Creamery tor butter for your
own use what would you say it I
should put some of the dirt i find in
your milk dn top of the butter in your
jar. You would say, "Oh! that dirty,
nasty buttermaker, what does he
meant Is this the proper way to send
me butter?" You would return the
butter to that creamery and be mad
besides, if the buttermaker would re
turn your dairy milk to your home he
would do his duty, although it would
make you mad. Now, my friends,
please help me to make good butter.
Keep your cans and milk clean and
away from the dirty barns and dirty
tanks of water as much as possible.
Strain your milk carefully; when you
go to milk your cows rub off their legs
and udders carefully and clean, and you
will see a great improvement in the
milk and butter.

Cattlemen are very much worried
over the evident intention of the gov
ernment to have all'tences on the pub
lic ranges removed at once. The Na
tional Live Stock Association has been
appealed to to use its influence In
Washington to have the matter de
layed, but there seems to be nothing
that can be done. To put up a fence
on the government range Is contrary
to the statutes, and to ask a govern
ment official to shut his eyes to viola
tion when the violations are pointed
out Is to ask him to violate the law
and his oath. As long as the stock
men themselves were content to keep
still, the government was willing to
believe that there were no ranges
fenced, but with a flood of protest and
complaint pouring in, there is nothing
to do but enforce the law. As long
as there was plenty of range for all
there was no trouble, but as soon as
the range became crowded then there
were plenty to find fault with the
fences, and the only remedy seems to
be to change the law. It is now gen
erally admitted that the present land
law will have to be changed, but as to
the nature of the change there Is a
vast opinion. The latest proposition
Is that the government sell the lands
to settlers at a low rate and on long
time and get out of the free land busi
ness once and for all. There seems to
be many In favor of this plan. Den

Slop or Dry Feed for Swine.
At the Indiana Experiment station
several tests were made to determine
whether slop or dry feed were most
profitable and to determine in what
proportion to solid food water should
exist in the feed. The figures reported
also bring out the fact that pigs
weighing 60 pounds, fed dry feed, con
sumed on an average of 2.35 pounds
of water daily, and that this amount
increased nearly constantly until these
same pigs weighing 218 pounds con
sumed 11.07 pounds per day. It is
also shown that pigs fed water in their
food as a slop, when weighing about
60 pounds consumed either 2.42, 4.25 or
5.79 pounds of water per day, while
these same pigs weighing 213 to 222
pounds consumed either 8.17, 14 or 18
pounds of water per day. Undoubtedly
much of this water was consumed un
necessarily and certainly one lot was
given much more water with its grain
than was required. There was no ma
terial difference In the appearance of
the pigs in either lot, so far as quality
is concerned, and so far as this one
experiment goes, the use of about two
times the weight of water to grain in

Iaiaeetlon of Export Dairy Prodaete,
An Associated Press dispatch from
Washington, D. C, says:
The agricultural appropriation act
for the current fiscal year authorizes
the Secretary of Agriculture in his dis
cretion to apply the law for the inspec
tion and branding of live cattle to
dairy products intended for exporta
tion, the purpose being to enable ex
porters of dairy products to give for
eign buyers the assurance of certifica
tion by the government of the United
States of the purity, quality and grade
of dairy exports.
Secretary Wilson has decided to ex
ercise the authority conferred on him
by establishing in the customs dis
tricts of Boston, New York, Chicago
and San Francisco a system of inspec
tion of dairy products, but first will
have experts in those districts gather
all possible data in order that efficient
regulations may be drafted for the
conduct of this new service. A begin
ning will be made in a tentative way
with the purpose in view to bring
about a practical and an honest sys
tem by which all persons may be prop
It is stated at the department to be
"probable that at an early date lue
owners or shippers of products for ex
port may, upon application, have the
same marked and certified as to purity
and quality, provided they are above
minimum grade, yet to be fixed."
All the oleomargarine makers want

as in nine cases out of ten to defy de

revenue officers after it Is in the hands
of the retailer or hotel keeper. And
they know that it is the retailer and
restaurant keeper who will find a way
to use the colored article with which

The Missouri Pacific Railway with its
system resembling a net work of lines
in the great southwest, runs fine trains
of palatial cars by a direct and agree
able route to Pueblo, and there con
nections are made with America's
most popular scenic route, the Denver
and Rio Grande Railway, in whose
cars the public are carried into the
very heart of the great mountain
range, through canyons of dizzy depth
and along the busy sparkling waters
which came from Snowland and
brought its coolness with them. There
are very many delightful places in the
Rockies and plenty of sport for the
hunter and fisher. He displays excel
lent judgment who steals some time
from his business and uses it in the
pursuit of a favorite sport and for the
benefit of his health. The Rio Grande
Western is a natural connection of
these two systems already mentioned,
carrying their passengers still further
toward the western outposts, into still
core remote sporting country, and
where forest and canyon wear their
natural beauty the longer, and so, to

travel a pleasure, and nature, erer

have not yet decided to take a summer
trip, decide now to do so, and get out
of the heat into the coolness of Colo
rado and Utah.
