TAX PAYERS, KEEP AN EYE ON
Brother Howard of tka
dodges about teUamg all aorta of
tsaaan about what republican; have doae
fai years past, bat fails to give one good
reason why the city council of Colambas
should let the contract forprintiag for
tkree-fourths the legal rate aad refusing
to open the bids from, the different
oanoss ia town.
Brother Howard claims "to the victor
belongs the spoils." This may be Mr.
Howard's political doctrine bat it will not
pass as good United States government
doctrine. Why is it that the government
gives the baildiagof ships, tbe furnish
ing of amy supplies and the countless
other items to bids? Is it to save tbe
people money? or what? We quote
elsewhere in regard to state supplies
beiag given to tbe lowest bidder, and by
the way, Mr.'Howard says The Joukxax,
printed a legal notice for tbe state this
year for which we received full legal
rate, and "scores of newspapers stood
ready to do the work for half the
money." Also that there will be other
printing to be done for the state next
year and the Telegram promises not to
get sick "when The Journal shall draw
four or five hundred dollars." Mr.
Howard shoald inform himself better.
The Jourkal received but a half rate
for that notice, which at full legal rate
would amount to considerably less than
100. Mr. Howard may be able to
stretch the legal measurement, but we
vary much doubt that the proposed con
stitutional amendments for next year
will be so lengthy, as he would infer.
Brother Howard says the "city and
county advertising has been through all
the years regarded as political patronage,
jast as postofloe appointments are re
garded.' Mr. Howard need take no
credit on that score, even if it were true.
for the republicans elected every one of
the men nominated on their city ticket
and no doubt could have elected others
bad they not preferred to endorse the
democratic mayor, councilman from
First ward, clerk and others. Had Mr.
Stillman of the Third ward resigned be
fore election instead of immediately
after, the republicans would very likely
hire elected another councilman from
that ward. Tbe fact is, the democrats,
at the last city election did not elect one
man that had not been endorsed by tbe
The public still fail to understand why
these men elected to represent their in
terests should not consider the interests
of the city first and their party second
not only for the principle involved in
the matter, but because they were elect
ed by both political parties. With one
exception in ten years Columbus has
bad a republican mayor.
THE SO-CALLED FOOT AND
About every year since we have been
editing an agricultural paper we have
given warning to our readers, especially
those in tbe prairie grass belt not to use
hay that contains wild rye. We have
pointed out that this wild rye srowine
on many of tbe prairie meadows ergotises
quite as badly as cultivated rye. The
ergot can very easily be seen by any man
who keeps bis eyes open; a long, slender,
black seed, sometimes half an inch or
longer in the cultivated rye and not quite
so long in the wild rye. This contains a
poison called ergot exceedingly valuable
in medicine, bat the effect of which is to
shrink the arteries and interfere with the
circulation of the blood through the
system. It is used by physicians to
check the How of blood either to tbe
brain or externally.
When fed to cattle in wild hay it
checks the circulation, and the result is
the dropping off of the tails and some
times the hoofs of tbe animals fed this
hay for a considerable length of time,
and also the deadening of tbe muscle.
Then the cry arises that foot and mouth
disease has broken out unskilled veter
inarians sometimes proclaiming it foot
and month disease and creating an alarm
over the state in which it occurs and
sometimes leading other states to quar
antine. In every case in which this has
been investigated it is found to be noth
ing but simple ergotism and in every case
tbe result of feeding spurred rye, either
of cultivated rye or the wild rye, and in
nine eases oat of ten of wild rye.
All this can be very easily avoided.
For example, iJr. Mayo, of Kantian, was
recently called upon by the Live Stock
Sanitary Commission to investigate out
breaks of foot and mouth dinonno among
cattle near Concordia and in Atchison
county, Kansas. It was found to be
nothing except ergotism. Last fall the
veterinary department of the Kansas
Agricultural College issued a bulletin
warning tbe stockmen that on account
of the prevalence of ergot in wild rve last
year ergotism was to be expected.
ic a farmer will not put himself in con
nection with the experiment station of
his state and if he will not take an up-to-date
agricultural paper to advise him
in all these things he will simnlv have to
take his medicine. It is some time vet
before farmers cure wild hay. but it is
not too early to call their attention to
the losses which have occurred from not
heeding our advice and that of the
"Whatsoever a man soweth.
that shall he also resD." whether in
things agricultural or in the ration of
morals. Wallace's Farmer.
A great deal of vapid criticism is beina
indalged in, in connection with Mr. Car-
aegiea gifts of libraries and educational
institutes for the training of engineers
and expert artisans. People are telling
him that if he wants to benefit the noor
he ought to build great hospitals
aad "homes for the Door." Now. Mr.
began life aa a poor boy and
the choieeof the objects of his gifts to
the public is tbe result of his experience
as a poor boy who had to work from the
begianing and aoqaire knowledge as beet
he could in his hoars off. The tender of
the aae of his library by aa early em
ployer, who was attracted by tbe alert
ambition of tbe boy was ia his eatima
tioa the greatest boon of his life. Hence
it is aataral that ha wishes to repay that
gift to the public ia kind ia the shape of
