A Rear Admiral to be Named For
The North Sea Tribunal.
Washington, Special.-An important
Meeting of Ui<3 cabinet was held to
day. Two questions of concern, par
ticularly, were considered, the first
being tlie appointment by the Presi
dent of an ?meilean naval officer on
the North .Sea tribunal, and another
being an opinion rendered by Attor
ney General Moody,, regarding thc le
gality under the lottery laws, of guess
ing contests, which have been con
ducted byVmany newspapers and mag
^??iicW^^-Tfas-s?ttTe'd' ~d'cflrntely" that
the appointee to the tribunal would
be a rear admiral of the navy. It is
practically certain that the selection
will be made from among three offi
cers-Rear Admirals Davis, Chadwick
and Sands. Admiral Dewey let it be
understood that he docs not care for
Attorney General Moody's opinion
on guessing contests is cf a most
sweeping character, and while the
Postmaster G?n?ral has no inclination
tc work hardship upon anybody, he
will put the Attorney General's judg
ment into effect as soon as may be
practicable. He realizes that many
thousands of people have invested
small or ?argo amounts of money in
the various schemes in the hope or
expectation, in' the words of the opin
ion, that luck would enable them to
win large returns. "A comparatively
small per centage of the participants
will realize their expectations," con
tinues the opinion.. "Thousands will
get nothing." The Attorney General
says the schemes are in effect lotteries
under the guise of guessing contests.
Hitherto the Postofftce Department
has been operating in respect to guess
ing contests under opinions rendered
by the Department of Justice. These
opinions have held that where tbs
persons could use a "dope book," or
records, or scientific information, in
making their calculations, their guess
er wore an application of knowledge
which, in the view of the Attorney
General, eliminated to an extent, at
least, the factor of chance. The opin
ion held, ;o quote one of them direct
ly, that "calculation, foresight, knowl-'
edge, inquiry and informatiou enable
the participants to approximate the
correct results and the use of the
mails iii promoting such enterprises is
not a violation of the law." Attorney
General Moody points out, however,
that "since these opinions were writ
ten, the Supreme Court of the United
States and the Court of Appeals of
New York, have ruled that cases iden
tical in principle to These under con
sideration were guessing contests."
Postmaster General Wynne tonight
gave out d statement, saying: "As a
number of legitimate business enter
prises have adopted the estimating or
guessing contests as a means of ad
vertising, and in view of admission to
the mails of matter pertaining to these
contests within the last few years,
the elimination of these schemes from
the mails cannot be made immediate
ly absolute. If such a scheme has
air. ad y been entered upon in gcod
faith, the Department will not issue
an order that will seriously injure
a legitimate business. Each case
will be handled separately, and no
scheme which involves the plan ruled
aguinst by the Attorney General will
hereafter be allowed to commence op

that needs your attention in the selec

twentieth century has been Just aa
busy in the way of funeral furnish
ings as in other line, until today
the styles of caskets are quite differ
ent from what they were fifty years
ago and changing every day.
This is especially true in Metallic
Caskets, the old style heavy cast iron
goods having given away to the more
up-to-date copper linings which are
neatly fitted into the best grades of
varnished or cloth covered work.
. One of the latest designs as recently
brought out. by the National Casket
Co., is what is designated as a Couch
Casket, which has the appearance of a
comfortable couch when open, yet re
tains all the requisite outlines of the
best styles in regular casket woli
The especial advantage of the Couch
Casket is found in its relief from thai
stiffness usually noted in all other
designs, and impressing the minds of
the friends as well as that of the fam
ily with a feeling of peace and rest
fulness not known before. ?
If it is desired to retain all of the
preservation qualities as found In the
copper linings, the Couch Casket can
be enclosed in a metal lined outsldo
box, which will then answer the dou
ble purpose of preserving both the
casket as well as the remains.

hat pin, and the result Is astonishing.
The old-fashioned gold or silver pin

of no use whatever in securing this

Compound had made, I decided to try
it. I took only six bottles.but it built me

Clover Culture Condensed.
I condense the statement of the con
ditions of clover production into Ave
sentences: Clear the soil interstices of
stagnant water; fill the soil with hum
us by plowing under stable manure
or rye and vetch; apply caustic lime,
five hundred to one thousand pounds
per acre; prepare a deep fine seedbed
and thoroughly cover the seed; give
the field wholly to the clover as early
in the season as practicable.-Dr. I. A.
Thayer, in the American Cultivator.
A Cover Crop.
The plan of having a cover crop for
all barron soil during the winter
months has not been universally adopt
ed. Many farmers do not realize thc
importance of a cover croy.
The "wearing" out of land is due
more to surface washing and leaching.
Plant food made available is lost dur
ing the winter months upon a soil un
covered and without a growing crop.
Corn stubble land constitutes the great
er area exposed to mushing and leach
Rye is the universal cover crop for
winter. This is not a nitrogen gather
er; it does not add plant food to the
soil but forms a carpet with its net
work of roots and blades that hold the
surface particles tqgether. Plant food
not used by the corn plant is taken up
by the green rye. On good corn land
this favorite crop is often grown con
tinuously for many years, where rye
is used for a winter covering. In fact,
many report increased yields from year
to year where rye is turned under
every spring. Rye is a savings bank.
It checks the waste of valuable plant
food. It will hold in one wini ur
enough plant food to grow several
crops of corn.
Build up thc Soil.
Don't be over-persuaded by the class
of people who tell you it is best to buy
a large amount of commercial fertili
zer. We say, don't do it, but make
your pigs, as well as your cows and
your horses, help you lo enrich your
One ton of skimmilk contains about"
eleven pounds of nitrogen, four pounds
of phosphoric acid and four pounds of
potash. One ton of corn contains thir
ty-six pounds nitrogen, fourteen
pounds of phosphoric acid and eight
pouijJs of potash. Thus does the ju
dicious combination of corn and skim
milk give you, not only a cheaply
grown pig for the market, but also a
handsome return in fertilizer. Pigs
should be put upon the market when
they will tip the scales at two hundred
and 250 pounds. The first hundred
pounds of growth costs less than the
second hundred, and very much less
than the third hundred. The practice
of some farmers of feeding a pig upon
clea" skimmilk until it weighs one
hundred lo 125 pounds and then lit
erally stuffing it with corn meal until
lt is "fat." is far from economical..
There should be no distinct fattening
period.-J. A. Roberts, in The Ameri
Experience With Cream Separators.
For some time we have been using a
dilution separator. There are points
against :ts use and also same in its
favor It lias been demonstrated at
the experiment station at Purdue that
this sryle of separator causes moro

at our institute that the students call
them "Delusion Separators." Then the
loss of butter fat is one point against

Points in its favor. 1st, cheapness.
They are within reach of all. Then
they save so much work. In most cases
the women are supposed to care for
the milk when it come? to the house.
At our place it saves them a good por
tion of this work as we always manage
to havo our separator ready to pour in
the milk as soon as it is brought in.
In the morning we draw the milk and
allow thc wife to turn the faucet and
get the cream, which can be done in a
minute. There arc no milk jars or
covers to he washed and scalded.-C.
0. Lindburg, in the Indiana Farmer.
Moisture in Butter.
The moisture in butter in many c??bfi
especially in that not washed, holds
within it a certain portion of the case
in, or curd, from the buttermilk, says
W. R. Gilbert in American Agricultur
ist. It follows, therefore, that with a
larger proportion of moisture there is
more chance of the butter becoming
cheesy or strong. Most cases of bad
butter are due to the fact that sub
stances other than fat have not been
properly abstracted. There are several
ways in which the intelligent butter
maker can control to a great extent
the amount of moisture in butter when
it is finished and ready for market. By
far the most important of these is tem
perature, the influence of which is felt
throughout the whole process of manu
Cream which has been ri pened-at a
high temperature usually gives butter
which is soft when churned. It has
a greater tendency to retain moisture,
while that which has been slowly and
thoroughly cooled before churning will
give firmer butter, which drains more
readily than when quickly cooled just
before churning, even though the tem
peratures of churning may be exactly
Bulter churned at a high temperat
ture retains much more moisture. In
farmhouses where there is no deep well
and ice is not procurable a good deal
of difficulty is experienced. In such
cases the cream should bc thinner than
usual when churned, so that the
grains will not gather loo quickly. The
size of the grain, too, is an important
factor. It should be sufficiently largo
to allow the buttermilk to drain quick
ly away. A very small graiu holds a
great deal more moisture.
Increase of Fertility.
The value of many feeding stuffs ls
based on their digestibility, but even
when food is digested it is not all as
similated, the larger portion being
voided. Of Ike protein in clover hay
nearly one-half fails to digest, and of
tnt! dlgeeted portion the manure heap
relives a larj?? 0har?; If a ton,'of
. A .
1 clover hay is worth $10, enough of it
goes into the manure heap to equal $9
worth of fertilizers. A ton of cottoa
seed meal, which may cost $20, will re
turn in the manure about $18, and that,
too, after the farmer has used those
foods for producing meat, milk and
butter, though the estimates depend,
of course, upon the market price of
plant foods. The reason is that much
of the food is composed of fat and
starch which create heat and fat for
the animals but fat and starch come
from the air. and not from the soil,
hence the real plant foods of the ma
terials purchased for use on the farm
are those portions which are added to
the manure. In fact, at $20 per ton
for cotton seed meal, it can be (and is)
probably used on the land as fertilizer,
but in so doing the farmer loses some
portions which can be utilized by stock
and which are of no value as manure.
By feeding all foods to stock they are
simply passed through the body to
the animal and rendered more ac
ceptable to the plants, the animal be
ing a machine for reducing foods to a
condition fit for vegetation. It may
be several seasons before the whole
of the materials are exhausted from
the soil, while every year the land in
creases in fertility and produces more
than before.-Missourian, in the Epi
The Yield to Expect.
"A farmer should- have some fairly
well-fixed idea of how much crop he
should get from a certain piece of land
and t^en hunt about for the reason if
his expectations are not realized," says
Farmer's Review. *'It does not pay to
be too easy with nature. The exacting
mau is the one that gets most from her.
We have been surprised to see certain
men satisfied with the very meagre re
turns they received from land. The re
turns were seldom more than enough
to pay the expenses of growing the
crop. Yet they were satisfied appar
ently and merely remarked, "Oh, well,
that land never does better than that."
The men in question belong to that
group known as "hand farmers." That,
is, they farm by the use of their hands
and not by the use of their heads. We
know of a place where some of this
kind reside. A man that farms with his
brains came along and said,'How. much
corn did yon get this year?' 'About
twenty bushels.' 'Why don't you get
more?' 'I don't know; the land never
does better than that amount here.'
The man that farms with his head
thought it worth while to find out for
the sake of these farmers what was
the trouble. As the land was rich In
humus he asked one of them if he
would use some potassium if he sup
plied it. He replied he would and he
did. On the piece treated with potas
sium the yield the next season was
at the rate of sixty-five bushels of
corn to the acre. That showed that
the land lacked potassium, yet the men
that farmed with their hands had never
tried to find out whether it lacked any
thing \or not. Why could not they have
done the work of finding out?
Some people are helpless in circum
stances and others try to control the
circumstances. Those that try to con
trol the circumstances are wise, for
the circumstances can generally be
controlled in a remarkable degree
when a man sets himself about it. A
farmer should not be contented with
any yield less' than a good yield, as
the average yield is usually a money
"There are few farms where the
yields of crops cannot be greatly In
creased except those farms under the
management of our most advanced
farmers. Thc problem should be not
bow to increase the number of acres
producing poor crops, but how to pro
duce a greatly increased yield on the
acres already under tillage."
Men Put Lifetime Saving on Vase.
The fruits of 25 years of labor and
having are visible in a curious vase
made by Edward Hansell. The vase ls
over 5 feet high and 32 inches at its
largest diameter. Its exterior, from
top to bottom, is composed of coins,
ancient and modern, great and small,
representing the money tokens of all
peoples, which have been carefully
made fast to a surface of copper.
Some of the coins are extremely rare.
Among them are crude bars, rings and
bolts, which were once used as the
medium of exchange by African and
other savage tribes. Spanish coins of
carly date are seen in abundance, and
some early Greek coins are there. Sici
lian spoon money, early Japanese bars
and forks. African horseshoes, shell
money of sea coast savages, as well as
the most modern'coins are to be seen.
Thc value of the vase Mr. Rausch
places at $75,000. Its maker is a
cornice-maker, and by birth a Ger
man. He says thc vase is thc only
one of its kind in the world. He be
gan to collect the coins of 1879, and,
though not possessed of wealth and
dependent for his living on his dally
toil, he collected so rapidly that he
soon conceived the idea of making
the vase. Ho found, however, that
wnat looked like an immense pile of
coins when loose covered only a small
patch on the vase, and then he devoted
his life to finishing the article-Phila

The new potato is purplish-green In

to the common "Irish!' tuber, both in
