Followed His Convictions.
Mr. Bryan in 1911, in his noted
address before the General Assem
bly of the Presbyterian church made
the following statement, which will
be interesting in view of the sensa
tion his stand on the serving of
wine has made within the past few
weeks. Mr. Bryan said:
The federal govern merit has
driven liquor from the senate and
the house. Why not put the gov
ernment on the side of total absti
nence by excluding its use from di
plomatic functions. When I visit
ed South America a year ago last
winter I was surprised at the cost
of the diplomatic branch of the ser
vice of the South American repub
lics. It costs them quite a sum to
meet present diplomatic require
ments. A considerable part of the
diplomatic expense goes for Enter
tainment and the cost of wine is a
large factor in the cost of enter
taining. The smaller countries
might hesitate to cut out wine lest
it might suggest poverty, but the
great Christian nations could aban
don the use of wine at diplomatic
functions without raising any ques
tion as to their motives. Why
should our nation not set the exam
ple? Why should it not lead the
way by throwing the weight of ?*s
influence against the use of intoxi
cating liquor? Our diplomacy is
open and honest; we do not have to
make people drink in order to deal
with them. Our nation is in a po
sition to make the start. Why not
The Webb Law.
How It Works.
"The enforcement of the law
will,'1 says the Brewers' Journal of
New York, "compel many brewers,
wholesalers and retailers to spend
thousands of dollars for lawyers'
fees, costs of legal process, etc.,
etc.; it will drive many men en

All of which does not exactly
agree with the statement of an op

reality amounts to nothing and was

At Madison. Me., reports a local
paper, occurred the first seizure un

Skowhegan, one of his deputies
seized three boxes of whiskey.
The Southern Express company,
writes the Eveuing Post of Dan

Adams Express company, accord

was indicted on sixty-seven counts
for bringing into and delivering
whiskey in a territory where the lo

At Lawton, Oklahoma, a seizure
has been made by the authorities of
Comanche county of a rather large
quantity of liquor shipped from
Texas, Missouri and Kansas eities.
At some points orders have been
given by the express companies to
return all liquors on band and

HOW TO PREVENT OAT SMUT
Grain Should Be Treated With For
malin Solution In Morning and
Drilled in Same Oay.
To prevent oat smut, the grain
should be treated with formalin... It
takes about one ounce of formalin for
every five bushels of grain to be treat
Clean a space on the barn floor and
thoroughly sprinkle it with the for
malin solution before spreading the
seed grain. The oats should be run
through the fanning mill twioe to re
move all light grain, as only heavy
clean seed should be sown. Spread
down the seed grain, then sprinkle the
grain with the formalin solution made
as follows: Formalin, one ounce; wa
ter, two and one-half gallons; mix
thoroughly. The solution can be ap
plied with a fine rose watering pot;
shovel the grain over so that every
seed is coated with the solution. When
all the grain is coataed, shovel the
grain into a round pile and cover with
sacks for not more than two or three
hours, then spread out, and as soon
as tho oats will not stick together lt
is fit to sow or drill The grain should
be treated in tbe morning and drilled
in the 6ame day. The drill should be
set to drill two and one-fourth to two
and one-half bushels to the acre, aa
the oats, having absorbed considerable
water are larger than dry oats. Have
the ground thoroughly mellowed;
drill the oats in with 250 pounds to
the acre of some good bone fertilizer.
Even if the grot .id is in good order, il
will pay to use the fertilizer. The fer
tilizer will ripen the grain early, the
straw will stand up stiff and cannot be
blown down by summer dorins and
the yield will be increased fully 10 tc
12 bushels per acre.
STAPLE FOOD FOR CHICKENS
Hens Cannot Give Best Results When
Fed Grain Alone-Fowls De
mand Variety of Feed.
Grain ?s the staple food for poultry,
and will be used for that purpose as
long as fowls are kept on farms, but
hens cannot give good results on grain
alone. It is beneficial to them and will
be at all times relished, but the de
mands of the hens are such as to call
for a variety. In the shells of eggs
as well as their composition are sev
eral forms of mineral matter and nitro
gen, which can only be partially ob
tained from grain.
Even grains vary in composition,
and when fowls are fed on one kind
for a long time they will begin to re
fuse it, as they may be oversupplied
with the elements of the food partaken
and lack the elements that are best
supplied from some other source. For
this reason they will accept a change
of food, which is of itself an evidence
that the best results from hens can
only be obtained by a variety of food.

The Road'U Turn Some Day.
[By Frank H. Sweet.]
I know the road i 3 rocky,
And the hills are hard to climb;
I know the feet get bruised and sore,
And it takeB heaps o' time.
I know the burden's heavy -
Oh, you needn't 'tempt to say;
But juBt keep a-plodding onward
For the road'll tura some day!
I know that homesick feeling.
And the ache you bear alone;
I know your heart is breaking,
By the bravely stifled moan.
I know the arm you leaned upon
Has now no power to stay;
But just keep a-plodding onward
For the road'll turn some day!
I know the structures you have hewn
Of youth's day-dreams lie low;
[ know you see their ruins stare
Everywhere you go.
I know the sunbeams round your path
Long since have ceased to play;
But just keep a-plodding onward
F^r the road'll tum some day!
