f?RS. STEPHE8 P* AYRES
Correspond!rrg Secretary of th? Wernas*? National Democratlo League.
r' The Women's National Democratic league, of which Mrs. Woodrow WU
?on and Mrs. Thomas R. Marshall, wives of the leading Democratic candi
dates, are honorary president and honorary vice-president respectively, and
Mrs. John S. Crosby ls president, has opened headquarters at 1123 Broadway,
?Kew York city, in charge o? the corresponding secretary, Mrs. Stephen B.
Ayres, wife of Congressman Ayres of New York.
The work being accomplished, dally by Mrs. Ayres and her corps of ste
nographers and aids ls not for u?e campaign moment only, but foundation
building for the future of Democracy. It is the first strictly woman's na
-xlonal political movement to be organised In the United States and, as such,
appeals to thinking women every where.
*Tt has not declared for or against the .question of equal suffrage nor
should lt be expected to do so any more than lt wouldjlscuss the questions
af religion," said Mrs. Ayres from her post as "livj^rire" of the league.
*"We are simply good Democrats banded together for tb9 greatest good to
the greatest number* of American housewives, who today are required to pay
more in this country for American gooda than they would have to pay for
the same goods in a foreign land."
She is especially interested ip the tariff on articles in constant feminine
use and has d9velr"?ed into quite a speaker at the "housewives' " meetings
of the tariff committee of the national Democratic committee.
The rich man breathes the atmosphere
tho same as you or I;
He cannot see a deeper blue than we do
In the sky;
He hears the piplnsr of the birds-a music
sweet and clear
Bat maybe money clinking dulls the mu
sic to his ear:
And yet he has some pleasures that pos
sess a tempting pulse
But h" r in't die any deader than the poor
The r'ch man piles the money till he
gazes at the heap
And trembles lest It totter, till he loses
lots of sleep:
The poor man tolls In factory, in office
and In ditch.
And worries over money, till he's sleep
less like the rich;
The moneyed man has pictures that ;
escape the poor man's eyes
But he can't die any deader than the poor i
The rich man cannot eat moro than one
meal at a time,
2?OT more than his ten pennies will ex
ceed the poor man's dime;
One suit of clothes ls all that may nt once ;
his form adorn.
He wore no more than poor men do the
day that he was born;
And he ls just a3 honest, and his false- |
hoods are plain Hes
And he can't die any deader than the
poor man dies.
There may be some philosophy Jn lifting
np a moan
Because the rich man rides the whilo the j
poor man wall;3 alone:
Because the rich rr.an ha? his go:- to buy
his goodly cheer
And yet there'll come a time Then he
will have to leave lt here.
OM Death's a spirit level that will brook
no one dies any deader than r.ext
man die?. .._.
Ho. it's I would be the vagabond
When summer days are her'.-,
To go and find what lies beyond
The hills that are so near.
To walk the winding road that leads
Forever on and on
And hear the wind dance through
The dancing wind of dawn.
The walls of town they hedpe us In,
They bind us foot and hand;
Our davo must end as they begin,
On one lone place wc stand
And it'? I would be the rover then,
To leave the town behind
And trudge through meadowland and glen
To see what I might find.
There Is no bloom-srent In the dust
That rises from the street;
The blood within my veins ls rust,
My heart slows in its beat
Then lt's I would ho tho roving one
Without a thought or caro.
But walk or slT-p from sun to sun
And know that Ufe is fair.
A toil-sapped ?life the city pl ves
Th:.t seems to have no end;
The vagabond, in sooth, he lives
And finds the world his friend
So it's I would be the trudging tyke
And foot it east or west.
To stop and look at what I like
And where I will, to rest.
Ho. it's I would b? the vagabond
These lazy summer days.
To climb far hills and fare beyond
Through all the pleasant ways,
Amid the clover bloom to sleep
Where life may show no Bears,
To slumber where the soft winds creep
And blanketed with stars!
Why the Villain Protested.

MANAGING A MATURE BULL
Animal Should Bo Kept in Wall,
Fenced Pasture-Ration of Wheat
and Ground Oats Is Good.
The service bull should be kept In a
well-fenced grass pasture with a shed
to go under In stormy weather during
the grazing season. Give a mixed
grain ration of wheat bran and ground
oats. Give two or three quarts of
grain night and morning. If grass ls
short, an armful of cornfodder should
be fed twice a day. The cow to be
served may be turned into the lot
with the bull; after service, give a
small feed of bran and while bull ls
eating, throw the stanchion lever, thus
sparely fastening the bull; the cow
jay then be removed without danger.
-By having the Cows served so that
part of the herd will come fresh in
the fall and part in the spring, a reg
ular quantity of milk may be had the
year round, without the necessity of
selling off half-fat cows at ruinous
prices and buying in fresh cows at
p.igh prices. When this method Is fol
lowed", the dairyman ls always in debt
to the cow dealer.
The bull should be kept In good
thrifty condition. A crosB bull may
often be tamed by turning one or two
dry cows into the lot. with him. Bulls
should have dally exercise and be
grain fed. If this ls not done, they
may become impotent or slow In
serving. The young bull should be
kept in a separate pasture and not al
lowed to run with the heifers.
PLAN OF SATISFACTORY BARN
Building With Cement Basement and
Holding Twenty-Eight Cows ls De
scribed and Illustrated.
My barn has a cement basement, the
walls being eight feet In the clear, ex
cepting where the driveway goes
through, writes W. J. Yarnall In the
Breeders' Gazette. The side walls are
16 Inches at the bottom and 12 inches
at the top. The end walls are 14 Inches
at the bottom and the same at the
top. The driveway goes through on
the level of the ground or about four
inches above the ground level. It all
has a cement floor. The barn cost in
all about $3,000. The cement base
ment cost with the wall about $1,000
The barn holds 28 cows, 14 cows on
a side. It also holds eight horses. It
has one box-stall, one double stall and
four single stalls, and a harness room,
Keeping Milk Sweet.
One of our enterprising dairymen
sent a bottle of milk to Paris at the
time of the exposition. It made the
Journey over and back, a trip of 28
days, and was still sw?et. There was
no preservatives used, and the only
precaution was to have the dishes and
bottle perfectly sterile, cooling the
milk at once and keeping lt all the
I time at a low temperature. This seems
I a good while to keep milk sweet, but
ft shows what cleanliness and a low
temperature can do with milk.
