China's CiS Task.
The Chinese government Is'instltinV
las various reforms, and in some cases
is' employing drastic means. ' With re
gard to indulgence in opium, for in
stanee, the government appears to
have resolved folly that the bajjit
aaost go, and Is prepared to adopt se
vere measures to effect the purpose.
Regulations are now in force against
the. use, of the drug, 'and the govern
stent evidently is convinced that the
law is not" invariably complied with.
An imperial edict condemns several
princes and others high in office for
disregarding the law, and suspends
them from exercising their official
functions. Some leniency is shown to
men fairly well on in years, as those
ef 60 years or over who have acquired
the habit are given reasonable time in
which to discontinue it But If they,
within the prescribed period,and others
within a shorter time do not stop using
opium, all hands will be "fired" from
the office and Icse their rank as well.
Of course as regards the smaller fry
and the ordinary subjects, all caught
at "hitting the pipe" or otherwise in
dulging in the drug will be dealt with
la exemplary fashion. This Is reform
with a stern front, and It remains to
he seen whether it will succeed com
pletely, says Troy Times. The govern
ment can at least plead great provoca
tion. The opium habit, which, by the
way. was introduced from elsewhere,
has a powerful hold upon the Chinese
people, and its effects are most de
plorable and demoralizing. The better
sentiment of the world will sympathize
with the Peking government in its de
sire to stamp out the evil.
Back to the West.
' The buffaloes came from the west
and now they are going back. Tears
ago the animals roamed the plains in
countless numbers. Indiscriminate
slaughter by hunters of big game and
by settlers and Indians for food pur
poses has practically exterminated
them, in their old haunts. A few are
to be found in private parks and zoo
logical collections, and it appears that
from these sources the new supply
from the west must come, if at all.
.There is an 8.000-acre national reser
vation in Oklahoma, established by the
United States government, and here
It is proposed to gather as many of the
buffaloes as possible, turn them loose
under conditions approximating those
of their native habitat and leave them
'to enjoy life and to increase and mul

buffaloes will come from the New
York zoological park in the Bronx,
and a "cowboy naturalist" is about to

tial in any successfml business. By
cooperation is not meant each erga
nixation as the communistic and mon
astic societies found in parts of the
European countries, and occasionally
existing in America. As co-oprio
relates to manufacture and commer
cialism, it simply means a righteous
regard on part of employer and the
employed for the liberty and priril
ego -of both. It means of the laborer,
n just day's work for a just day's
compensation; and for the employer,
services rendered for the wages he
must pay. Interests of both are paral
lel. One has his capital invested,
money employed and the other has al
so his capital represented by his abil
ity to labor either In n mental er
In England and in parts of Ger
many, there are numerous societies,
the workers in each being common
stockholders and participating in all
profits according to their holdings.
In fact these societies are nothing
more than the great railroad com
panies and industrial concerns of
America, only that in the latter the
stockholders seldom take an active
part in the work performed. One who
takes the care to study Into condi
tions in the countries where this
form of co-operation exists, will find
environments far different from what
obtains in the United States. In vari
ous places and at different times at
tempts to copy after the English co
operative societies have been made In
the United States. Failure has re
warded the efforts made. Some few
communities flourished for a time,
Propped up by the success of the
few successful organizations in the
old country, shrewd schemers have
started different commercial enter
prises in citias of the United States,
supposed to be operated upon the co
operative plan. When carefully stud
ied, and the plans of the promoters
dissected, it will be found that co
operation in these cases seems simp
ly the getting into business on other
people's money, and weaving around
the enterprise such appearances as
leads the unsophisticated to believe
that from few dollars invested, great
savings can be ma-Je. In fact the
co-operative plan is more for the pur
pose of advertising a private' business
proposition and gaining trade from
those who N invest their dollars in the
It is a foolish thing for the resi
dent of any town .or farming commu
nity to invest money in such enter
prises, which means competition for
his home town, the killing Qff of its
business And the building up of con
cerns in large cities. The earnest man
or woman can see in their own home
place splendid chances for co-operation.
Established business systems
as found in the rural towns, are
splendid examples of what co-operation
should he. The home merchant
supplies the residents of the place
with the commodities that they re
quire; the merchant is the medium
of exchange of the products of the
farmer. In the transactions employ
ment is given to home labor, and the
little profits are kept at home for
the benefit of all in the community.
Co-operation can be simmered down
to a strictly home-trade principle, and
there can be no higher form, no sys
tem Inaugurated that will bring bet
ter results to the masses. Before you
invest in co-operative mercantile
schemes devised by shrewd business
men in the large cities, study every
phase of the question well, and you
are likely to conclude that in your
own town there is plenty of room for
Cost ef Production Should Always Bs
a Factor In the Matter ef Prices.
Profits should bear an equitable re
lation to cost of production. The farm
er who has money invested in lands,
agricultural implements, stocks, and
other things necessary to carry on his
business, when selling his products
must take Into consideration the inter
est on his money invested, the wear
and tear of farm equipment, the wages
of hired help and a salary for his own
service. When he sells his products
for less than pays the expenses nec
essary to carry on his work and culti
vate his crops, care for his stock, etc.,
he is the loser. The same principles
apply to the person engaged in any
other line of business. There is inter
est on capital employed, wages, taxes,
license and cost of articles which com
prise the stock necessary for. opera
tion. Goods must be sold at a certain
percentage of profit or there will be
a case for the sheriff or the bank
ruptcy court In dealing with our
fellow men we should always bear in
mind the principles of business, and
not' exact too great profits or sell cr
buy at prices other than equitable. It
is also a good thing to remember when
great bargains are offered that cost
of production and legitimate profits
must be considered. Too low prices
give cause for suspicion that goods
are inferior in some way, or that there
is a "nigger In the fence."
Almost every small town has an Ice
house of sufficient capacity to supply
the people locally with ice. It would
not bs very expensive to conduct in
connection with it a cold storage plant
of capacity great enough to care for
the storage of fruit, eggs and other
produce brought In from .the sur
rounding country. Such an establish
ment would often save farmers con
siderable money, by enabling them to

FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION.
Prosecution of Oppressive Combines
Afford a Lesson to Heme Traders.
Never before has there been such
a stirring up of the masses and an
awakening as to rottenness in finan
cial affairs among the large corpora
tions as at present Some one at one
time said that "when thieves fall out
the devil gets his reward." So it
seems at present when faction is ar
rayed against faction in exposing
crooked operations in great financial
and business deals, in which the little
fish are swallowed by the big ones,
and the men in control, like wolves,
lead the lambs to slaughter.
It Is amazing how farspread are the
frauds practiced, and how high up in
public estimation are the manipula
tors of the rotten deals. The stealings
of the millionaires and multi-millionaires,
the intrigues and their perjuri
ous lying and misrepresentations to
accomplish their aims; the intricacy
of the machinery used in their opera
tions, the perfection of the means, the
combinations employed to fleece the
people of dollars, would do credit to
a 'Gsgllostro or a Machiavelli, or a
There cannot be doubt that these
various articles appearing in the mag
azines and general newspapers will
have the result of 'opening the eyes
of the public to things that few hereto
fore ever gave serious consideration.
They will have the effect of making
the people more cautious In making
investments of their earnings, and
will result in lessons that are bene
ficial to the country at large. Home
trade principles preclude the possibil
ity of people losing by the operations
of such gigantic schemers. Money in
vested in your own community In the
development of ts latent resources
will give excellent returns, is ever
under your own observation, and while
the percentage of profit from some
home investments may not be up to
the representations made by the ma
nipulators of stocks and the shearers
of iambs in general, you are not se
likely to be a loser.
MARKET DAYS IN TOWNS.
Successful Plans to Entertain Visiters
and Attract Trade.
How to attract trade to towns Is a
question that interests every business
man. There must be some attraction
fcrpeople of the surrounding country;
some entertainment to please. Many
means have been put in operation by
different towns to bring about the ob
jects desired. The people of the small
er towns in different western states
have inaugurated street carnivals, fall
festivals and similar enterprises to
entertain people from the surrounding
farming sections. These methods
have been universally successful, and
have resulted in bringing trade to the
towns -that otherwise would have gone
elsewhere. Not alone this, but the
residents of the rural districts are
brought In contact with the city peo
ple on a friendly basis and harmonious
relations established that are highly
In many towns market days have
been established. From early spring
until late in fall one day in the month
is set aside for "market day." For this
occasion bands of music are engaged,
balloon ascensions, baseball games,
races and similar attractions are em
ployed to interest the people. All these
are free, the expense being borne by
the business interests of the town.
The farmers are invited to bring to
the town their horses, cattlo, hogs, in
fact every product that they have for
sale, and the same is auctioned off to
the best advantage. On these market
day3 all kinds of articles can be had
at bargain prices. Each storekeeper
makes special efforts to offer bargains,
and generally the sales are enormous.
A few enterprising small, towns that
have adopted the market-day idea
have become note.d for many miles
about as lively trade centers and take
trade away from territory in the neigh
borhood of less enterprising towns.
The market-day idea is worthy of con
sideration by business men in small
towns who desire to pursue an inex
pensive method of attracting trade to

farmer uses that plow he will have to
turn many a furrow before the rust

As a result of experiments by the

following conclusions have bsca
reached regarding the growing of al
falfa: Under favorable conditions al
falfa yields a most satisfastory crop
for soiling and for hay. It should be
cut when coming into blossom. Twen
ty to thirty pounds of seed should be
sown per acre. Summer or fall saed
ing following thorough tillage is rec
ommended. Spring seeding is more
likelv to be choked out by weeds.

Prof. Henry s advice concerning tho
weaning of lamb3 is sound and should
be followed. First of all he says that
the lambs should be so far separated
from their dams that neither can
hear the bleating of the other. For a
few days the ewes should be held on
short pasture or kept in the yard upon
dry feed. Their uQders should be ex
amined, and if necessary, as is often
the case with the bast mothers, they
should be drained of milk a few times
lest inflammation arise. At weaning
time the lambs should be put en the
best pasture and given a liberal sup
ply of grain In addition, in order to
mitigate the effects of weaning.
The testing of cows for their ability
to produce butter fat Is the only way
in which the farmer can tell which i3
the profitable cow and which is not.
Of course every farmer can do this
work of testing for himself, but tho
matter is made easier where testing
associations are formed and someone
is employed to give all his time to the
work of testing the cows in a certain
community. This system is growing
In Wisconsin, and should be Intro-
duced In every state In which cows
are extensively kept Increase in ths
number of cow testing associations
will mean the saving the best cows for
breeders and the letting go bf many
cows that are not paying their board.
The latter kind of cows should be
disposed of as rapidly as possible,, as
they .are a great drag, on the dairy industry.
