Ob narrow atrip of somewhat hilly
laad Ijiag between lake Monona and
lain Maadota, with shores sloping to the
water's edge, lies Madison, the eapitol of
TTiacoaain It is a city of solid business
buildiBgs and fine residences, mostly
bailt of brick and stone. In this city
took place this year the annual session
of the Farmers' .National Congress.
In itself the meeting of farmers from
nearly every state in the union is very
iBtareetiag and of great benefit' to all
those interested in the advancement of
agriculture Add to this the fine agri
cultaral college, surrounded by build
ings such ss the dairy building, machin
ery hall and horticultural buildings lie
scattered over ground just rolling
enough to make the buildings show off
to good advantage, and you have a com
bination of surroundings hard to excel.
On the day of our arrival, Thursday,
everybody repaired to 'the gymnasium
building, where William H. Tatt was to
address the farmers about noon. The
building was fairly well filled, and our
presidential candidate admitted that be
did not know so very much about farm
ing, and while referring to the growing
importance of agriculture, viewed from
a national standpoint, evidently did not
see fit to pity the farmer, nor to soft soap
him to any great extent. Referring to
the advantages of country life, which so
many people seem to ignore, one of the
greatest, he said, was the quiet life of
the farmer which enabled him to use
more deliberation in passing judgment
on political affairs, and, that he was will
ing to trust in their judgment, and leav
ing politics out of his address he con
cluded with a few words of well merited
eulogy for the Wisconsin agricultural
school and faculty. His speech was
short and was listened to with marked
A talk on corn and the selection of
proper seed corn was given in the after
noon by Prof. Moore of the Wisconsin
university. Evidently Prof. Moore is a
disciple or cousin or nephew to Prof.
Holden of Iowa, the ohampion corn
advocate of this country. So full was
he of corn cultivation, the seed corn im
provement problem, and other subjects
relating to the increase of corn yield per
acre, that it was easy to see that he only
stopped talking for fear he might weary
bis audience. Loud applause expressed
the appreciation his words received from
Prof. Alexander's illustrated lecture
oa the horse and the advantages of
breeding in one line and with a fixed
object in view, was a masterly treatment
of the subject, and was carefully listened
to by sa appreciative audience.
Ob Saturday a lecture on tuberculosis
in cattle by Prof. Bunel, was well
attended by the delegates and a large
BBBtber of other people. After the lec
ture a practical demonstration of the
tsberoulosisteet was given in a pavillion,
which will soon be completed and used
by the agricultural college for the judg
ing of live stock and their other studies
connected with the live stock depart
ment. A cow, apparently healthy,
which, however, had indicated sickness
by the tuberculosis injection test, was
killed in the presence of a large number
of spectators, and proved to be badly
affected. The lung showed two lumps
or abscesses, one of them when cut open
by the professor was a mass of festering
pass, the other one, not so far advanced,
was of the consistency of cheese. The
glands below the head on the throat also
showed signs of tuberculosis. Not a
very pleasant sight to be sure, but as a
conclusive argument as to tuberculosis
was worth more than a dozen lectures.
A meeting of the Nebraska delegates
for the purpose of securing the union of
next year's congress at Lincoln and
other sundry affairs, took up part of our
time one afternoon.
Ob Monday forenoon, President Yon
Hyke of the Wisconsin university, gave
a lecture on the preservation of our
national resources, and especially con
servation of the fertility of the soiL It
was a masterly affair and greatly ap
plauded by the audience.
Oa Saturday afternoon the great Ne
braska man, W. J. Bryan, favored the
Farmers' Congress with an address. The
gymnasium building was crowded to
suffocation. He was introduced as the
greatest farmer in America. He, how
ever, disclaimed this great distinction,
and smilingly acknowledged that accord
ing to Horace Greeley's definition of a
farmer sad an agriculturist, be was not
a farmer but an agriculturist that is a
man who made his money in town and
spsat it oa the farm. Our late arrival
prevented as from getting near enough
to the great orator to fully understand
his words, and the extreme heat standing
in a crowd packed like herrings in a box,
finally forced us to retreat without hear
ing much of the speech of the distin
Ib the auditorium of the university
8enator Long also gave an address on
the American society of equity a society
which assumes that the farmer should
always fx the price of farm products.
Long is a good speaker and
i hie theory sound plausible. How-
after sounding several delegates,
I failed to Had any that "believed his
scheme to be practicable.
A young maa, whose name has slip
ped my memory, made a good speech in
favor of co-operation by fanners in buy
ing and selling. He had spent three
months is England, Scotland, Ireland
sad Uermaay, ana gave us some very
interesting facts in regard to co-opera-tissi
as it is managed in those countries.
Was it too short a stay in Europe which

xpmieaoe in business
His ideas appeared to us some.
, sad the expresmon of them
had ast that aarsfal aaalysiag quality
of the discourses delivered by the differ
ent professors of the university.
A few hours with the committee on
resolutions concluded our connection
with the session of the congress and we
left our brother farmers and friends in
Madison with a feeling that no one can
attend a session of the Farmers' National
Congress without feeling that great
indeed is the future of agriculture in
this country. And this feeling cannot
help being a stimulus and inspiration to
make greater efforts in the future to
reach a higher plane of perfection in the
pursuit of agriculture. It would not be
fair to conclude this paper without men
tioning the liberal hospitality, the feel
ing of good will, the heartiness of the
welcome extended to the delegates by
the business men, the members of the
university and in fact by everybody
with whom the delegates had occasion
to mingle. A. 8.
ARE MICROBES IN YOUR SCALP
Many Explanations of Baldness Have
Been Advanced. The Most Cor
rect is That of Microbes.
The term 'microbe" refers to a para
stic plant or fungi also called bacteria.
A microbe is so small that it can only be
detected by the aid of a microscope.
Some microbes are harmless, while
others produce various diseases, and
derive their titles through the form of
their growth or because of the diseases
they create, which diseases are infecti
ous or contagious.
Pro. Unna of Hamburg, Germany,
and Dr. Sabourand, the leading derma
tologist of France, discovered that a mi
crobe caused baldness, -and their theory
has time and again been amply verified
through research experiments carried on
through the observation of eminent
scientists. This microbe lodges in the
Sebum, which is the natural hair oil, and
if permitted to flourish, it destroys the
hair follicles, and in time the pores en
tirely close and the scalp gradually takes
on a shiny appearance. When this hap
pens there is no hope of the hair growth
Dandruff is a contagious disease which
a microbe causes, and later produces
itching scalp, falling hair and baldness.
Dandruff is caused by the microbe
diseasing the sebaceous matter, which
dries up and scales off. Sometimes the
cuticle surrounding the hair allows the
natural oil of the hair to force its way
between the flakes of scarf skin direct
to the hair, and the microbe being be
tween the flakes force them apart and
they scale off as dandruff.
We have a remedy which postively
will remove dandruff, exterminate the
miorobe, promote good circulation in
the scalp, tighten and revitalize the hair
roots, grow hair and cure baldness. We
back up this statement on our own per
sonal guarantee that this remedy, which
is called Rexall"93" Hair Tonic, will be
supplied free of all cost to the user if it
fails to do as we promise. It will also
restore gray and faded hair to its origin
al rich, gloesy color, if loss of color has
been caused by disease, yet it is in no
sense a dye. Kexall "93" Hair Tonic
accomplishes these results by making
every hair root, follicle and pigment
gland strong and active, and by stimulat
ing a natural flow of coloring pigment
into the hair cells.
Rexall "93" Hair Tonic is entirely free
from grease or sediment, is exceedingly
pleasant to use, and will not gum the
hair or soil the clothing or pillows.
We want everyone troubled with hair
or scalp ailments, even though they are
bald in spots, to try Rexall "93" Hair
Tonio on our guarantee. We exact no
obligations or promises, and simply ask
you to give it a thorough trial, and if
not satisfied, tell us, and we will refund
the money paid us. Pollock & Co.,

I ask that every responsible

member of a labor organization,

heartily approve of them and will

ing fact that the principles laid
down by Judge Taf t In these very

ple are asked to condemn, are
themselves the very principles
which are now embodied in the
laws or practices of every respon

principles which he thorein so

serve as a charter of liberty for
all of us, for wage workers, for

for they rest on the principles of
fair dealing for all, of even-banded

"lie is not a crusader, he is a states
man with conscience. He has won bis
present position through a cheerful, un
hesitating and undeviating devotion to
duty, through actually achieving things
on the open field of action, through an
intelligent conception of the strength
and worth of our great government
with its checks and balances; and the
strength and capacity of our citizen
ship with Its loyalty and its patriotism.
"No man ever had a deeper regard
for the fundamental principles and pre
cepts upon which this government is
founded, and no one ever had a firmer
conviction that the constitution is a
sufficient chart by which to measure all
rights and obligations and to gauge all
the demands and all the aspirations
and restrain and control all the reck
lessness of this Indomitable race of
ours. Trained in the law, eleven years
on the bench, be explored well the
sources of jurisprudence and carried
away from bis work an everlasting de
votion to order and justice.
"Under all circumstances and under
all emergencies, he has proved himself
a brave, clean-minded, self-poised and
courageous statesman. No man can put
his finger upon a little or cowardly
act, an incompetent or questionable
piece of public service no stain upon
his private life, no shadow open
bis public career. And standing now in
the full fierce light which beats upon a
throne, with eager eyes scrutinizing
every act of a long and arduous public
career, no doubt arises as to his expe
rience and ability. Be challenge comes
to his fine sense of duty or bis patriot

great principles Is only in its Infancy.
Our glory as a nation has but just be

TBYrfta TO MMD-
Democrats Pnrsnlag Their Usnal
Dsahls .Faced Policy.
Upholding Disfranchisement lm the
Semth While forming Colored
Bryan Clubs in West.
(From the Baltimore Inn, Dem.)
General Wlnfleld 8. Hancock, who
was tbe Democratic aontlmee for Presi
dent in 1880. declared the tariff was
principally a "local question" that is
to say, a Pennsylvania Democrat might
be a protectionist for protection's sake,
while a Democrat la Georgia or In
Iowa might hold fast to the doctrine
of a tariff fer revenue only. The Massa
chusetts Democrat might be a free
trader without reservation of any kind,
while the West Virginia Democrat
might be a free trader only with re
spect to commodities which were not
produced by his own State. General
Hancock's pronouncement was consid
ered an ingenious evasion of the tariff
Issue, but It did not produce harmony
in the Democratic party, and tbe gen
eral was defeated.
Twenty-eight years have passed since
General Hancock defined the tariff as
a local question upon which the Demo
crats of each State were free to act
with regard chiefly to local interests.
The principle which- he then formu
lated seems to have been adopted by
Democrats In the West In respect to
the relation of the Democratic party
to the negro. Last week the West Vir
ginia Democratic convention embodied
in its platform planks demanding cer
tain qualifications for voters, designed
to disfranchise many negroes. Their
platform also contains a declaration in
favor of separate coaches for white
and negro passengers on railroads. Tbe
West Virginia Democrats not only re
fuse to hold out the dire branch to
the negro and Invite him Into their
fold, but they are determined to limit
his political activity by a disfranchis
ing law and to bring him under the
operation of a "Jim Crow" law whan hs
travels on the railroads of that Stats.
What are the Fromisesf
Out in Nebraska and In Kansas the
Democratic campaign managers are
organizing negro voters Into Bryan
clubs. In Ohio no effort will be spared
to secure the support of the negro
voters for the Democratic national
ticket What pledges have been given
and what Inducements have been of
fered docs not appear. But it k- a fair
inference that tbe managers have
promised to do "something for the ne
gro," perhsps to recognize hint in tbe
distribution of offices. If Mr. Bryan
should be elected, and also to take
such action as the negroes may de
maud In respect to the reinstatement
of the negro battalion dismissed from
the army by President Roosevelt for
the attack on Brownsville. Last week
when the West Virginia Democrats
were declaring for a disfranchisement
law and for a "Jim Crow" law, tbe
Democratic convention in the Twelfth
Congressional district of Ohio adopted
a platform favoring "tbe enactment
of laws which shall accord to all men
accused of wrongdoing, whether sol
diers or civilians, a fair and Impartial
trial and an opportunity to be beard
lpfore conviction or punishment"
This apparently refers to the Browns
ville Incident It may also, have a
bronder meaning and a more extended
application and may be susceptible of
an interpretation whieh will make
Southern Democrats open their eyes
with amazement and possibly with ap
prehension. Race Question "Local Issnof'
' There seems te be no ground for rea
sonable doubt that the Democratic
campaign managers in the West, in the
effort to secure negro support for their
national ticket, are acting upon tbe
principle that the race question Is only
a "local issue." It is evident that the
South does not approve this plan of
campalgu, but is powerless to check It
The Democracy of the South Is In full
accord with tbe position taken by the
West Virginia Democrats last week.
And yet It Is assumed by those who
are trying to get negroes to support
Mr. Bryan that the South will act In
hearty co-operation with tbe Ohio, Ne
braska. Kansas and Illinois Democrats,
who are welcoming tbe negro into free
fellowship in the Democratic party
and probably promising to annul the
decision of President Roosevelt In the
Brownsville matter. Tbe theory of
Western Democrats that the rase prob
lem Is merely a local Issue is calcu
lated to give tbe South much concern.
Many Democrats ha that section may
.question whether It Is worth while to
elect a Democratic president who may
open wide the door of political oppor
tunity to tbe negro.

INDIAN WOMAN GOT THE BEAR.
Prodded Him Out with Her Scissors,
Then Tomahawked Him.
As for that grit of women meaning
Indian women which has been cele
brated in a well-known book, there is
a story in Fur News which is gooa
evidence of their physical courage.
A dealer in skins tells of a squaw
who was walking along on her snow
shoes one day when her small boy
Baw a bear curled up under the snow
in his winter sleep. She could not kill
him where she was, so she lashed a
pair of scissors to a sapling, prodded
him out and smashed his head in with
her tomahawk as he emerged.
"I gave her ten dollars for the skin,"
writes the dealer, "so it was not a bad
morning's work. Another ingenious
piece of hunting that I remember was
accomplished by an Indian who found
two moose in a yard that is, the
snow clearing which the animals
make when the frosts are breaking
up and the snow is too sharp and brit
tle for their comfort.
"He crept up and got the female
with his tomahawk. The male was
driven to fury and it was unsafe to ap
proach him. The stroke of a hoof
would put the Indian out of business
in close order.
"Having no gun, he improvised
bow and arrow from the trees, stuck a
sharp file into the point of the arrow,
made a bowstring with the laces of his
moccasins and shot the beast through
