NICARAGUA CANAL PROSPECTS.
Representative Doolittle, in a pri
vate letter to E. C. Burlingame, of
this city, writes encouragingly of the
prospects for this great work. The
following is an extract from this letter:
I feel now that we are pretty certain
to have a favorable report on the Mor
gan bill which I introduced in the
house and which was referred to the
committee on interstate and foreign
commerce, in whose charge it now is.
Those who have been opposed to this
work of overwhelming importance to
our country, we can with safety say
are now openly in favor of it. One of
the members of the above committee
who has fought every proposition of
mine as well as those of others intend
ed to forward this work, came to me
and told me he felt certain now that a
favorable report would be made on the
bill. Senator Morgan, you know, has
ever been the champion in congress of
this measure, but of course has con
fined his efforts largely to the senate
and to the writing of many interviews
in its behalf. There had been no one
in the house up to the time that I came
here who had taken up the matter in
that body; and since being here I have
talked with almost every man in the
house and have embraced every oppor
tunity in this and other directions to
be of benefit and to keep the ball roll
ing, believing I could do no better
work for the state than along this line.
I have investigated the subject thor
oughly, and believe I know as much
about it as any man can without visit
ing the line of the work. The field
that will be opened up for the products
of our country from the outset will be
most beneficial. Besides this, as soon
as the first lick is struck and the first
yard of earth removed after this g*ov
ernment has undertaken the construc
tion of the canal, money will roll into
the state of Washington as it never
has gone to any state in this Union,
for our resources will then be in de
mand and the development of them
will be called for. Most sincerely
yours, W. C. DoouTTXK.
A well-posted veterinarian says that
a large proportion of the diseases of
the horse are due to too good care.
They are killed by kindness.
Intellgence in the horse is a prime
requisite. If an animal has it he can
be trained to almost anything. He is
safer, as well as better in other re

Begin feeding when the pregnancy
period is about half over, and continue
until near foaling time.
Here is an Ohio man's plan for mak
ing pig" growing profitable: To make
the business pay, get ten good, thrifty,
high-grade or pure-bred sows, and a
first-class, pure-bred male. Remem
ber, the male must be absolutely pure
bred; high-grade or cross-bred boars
are of little value as breeders. Breed
the sows so as to farrow each spring
and fall. With proper care, which
must be given to any business to make
it succeed, the litters will average five
pigs each, giving fifty pigs to be fat
tened for the spring and fifty for
the fall market. Have the spring
pigs ready for the early autumn
trade, and the fall pigs must be
sold not later than March. By this
plan the fat pigs are disposed of be
fore the young ones arrive, when more
time and room can be given them. To
do this, commence feeding the pigs
liberally from time of farrow; never
let them know what hunger is.
