OUTLOOK IS BETTER
II VOTE EXPECTED IN JOLY
A Rest Un;il After the Fourth of
July, Then More Speeches Will
Washington. The Canadian recip
rocity situation cleared to a marked
degree Friday and a canvass of the
situation in the senate was in every
way assuring to the friends of the
measure. With not more than a doz
en set speeches in prospect, many of
the senators count upon a vote before
the end of July.
When the senate adjourned after
three hours of anti-reciprocity speech
making by Senators Gamble and Cum
mins there was an understanding that
there would be no further effort atr
legislation until after July 4 and that
when business is resumed there will
be no cessation until final adjourn
ment. There will be a brief session
of both houses, but only to meet the
constitutional inhibition against eith
er body adjourning for more than
three days at a time without the oth
The recess will continue until July.".
The most formidable speech still to
be made is that of Senator La Fol
lette. He will present his long prom
ised tariff amendments to the reci
procity bill and will talk for three or
four days discussing the tariff even
more than reciprocity. The3c amend
ments will be in the nature of a sub
stitute of all other tariff suggestions.
The only speeches promised in sup
port of the reciprocity bill will be
made by Senators Stoae of Missouri
and Burton of Ohio. In addition to
Senator La Follette. Senators Clapp,
Bristow, Grennn, Xelscn. Bailey, Sim
mons and other will lie heard, but
none except La Follette and possibly
Bristow will talk at length.
yTith reciprocity disposed of it is
not believed that the session will be
greatly prolonged. The stand pat re
publicans are disposed to concede a
vote on the wool and free list bills.
The democratic senators have said
from the beginning they would be sat
isfied with a roll call on the two tariff
bills and there are indications that
they will let these go to vote without
much debate in view of the threat
ened presidential veto of both bills.
Senator Cummins, whp has had the

Debt He Acknowledged as
Uncle Renben, the village white
washer and man or all work, was a
frequent borrower of small sums
from his neighbor, Colonel Arkwright
and as a rule he repaid these littla
debts at the appointed time; but on
one occasion, when he had been ae
commodated with a loan of two dol
lars and a half, which he promised
to return in a few days, he allowed
two or three weeks to pass without
making any mention of his indebted
ness, and, in fact, seemed to avoid
his creditor. But one morning the
colonel unexpectedly encountered hln?
at the post office.
"Hello, Uncle Rube! Didn't you

COLLIES MADE VERY USEFUL
Animals Can Easily Be Taught to Go
Long Distances Into Pastures
or Woods for Cows.
We do not think collies are danger
ous with children. We have raised
two farm puppies and they became
Qrm companions for the children and
we never knew them to snap at the
little ones or show .a disposition to
harm them, says a writer in an ex
change. Collies are very useful on
the farm. They can easily be taught
to go alone long distances If neces
sary into the pastures or woods for
the cows, bringing them home night
and morning for milking. It Is fa-
pleasanter to send a dog for them,
especially on a w-et stormy morning
than to walk a mile or so for the ani
mals or to hire a man to do it.
The Benefit of Wood Ashes.
I had one-eighth of an acre on a
d ravel ly knoll, which bore only June
;ras.s. very small and thin at that,
says a writer in an exchange. I put
3n three barrels of wood ashes and
clover started well. The next year
I put ou more ashes and had a fair
:rop of clover. I put the ashes di
rectly on the turf. A man bought a
farm of some fifty acres adjoining
mine, and as the old saying is "could
aot raise beans." He could only keep
one cow and a horse the first year,
but he made what manure he could
md put on about four barrels oi ashes
to the acre. He followed this for
hree or four years and during his
six years stay he bought about $25
A-orth of manure. The last two years
av cut a heavy hay crop, kept four
;ovs and two horses, raised 60 bush
els of oats, considerable corn and po
tatoes for his own use and some to
nell. He paid $S00 and sold for $I..-00.
Endive Not Hard to Grow.

The scarcity of help is preventing

BABY'S HAIR ALL CAME OUT
"When my first baby was six
months old bo broke out on his head
with little bumps. They would dry
up and leave a scale. Then it would
break out again and it spread all over
his head. All the hair came out and
his head was scaly all over. Then bis
face broke out all over in red bumps
and it kept spreading until it was on
bis hands and arms. I bought several
boxes of ointment, gave him blood
medicine, and had two doctors to treat
him, but he got worse all the time. He
had it about six months when a friend
told me about Cuticura. I sent and
get a bottle of Cuticura Resolvent, a
cake of Cuticura Soap and a box or
Cuticura Ointment. In three days
after using them he began to improve.
Ho began to take long naps and to
8 top scratching his head. After taking
two bottles of Resolvent, two boxes or
Ointment aud three cakes of Soap he
was sound and well, and never had
any breaking out of any kind. His
hair came out in little curls all over
bis head. I don't think anything else
would have cured him except Cuticura.
"I have bought Cuticura Ointment
and Soap several times since to use
for cuts and sores and have never
known them to fail to cure what I put
them on. I think Cuticura. is a great
remedy and would advise any one to
use it. Cuticura Soap is the best that
I have ever used for toilet purposes."
