Judge Kenyon and the '-'Farm
Former Senator Kenyon, now a
United States Judge, during the^
brief deriod of private citizenship en
joyed between his resignation as sen
ator and* taking the oath of office as a
Federal Judge, made an address be
fore the students of the University of
3Iissouri. Among other public ques
tions discussed in this address was
the "Farm Bloc." Judge Kenyon,
while in the senate, was the recogniz
ed champion of the farmers and the
?eoder o'f a body of senators who be
lieved that the quickest way to im
prove economic conditions in this
country was to restore prosperity
among the farmers. To do this an or
ganization wa? formed consisting of
both Democrats and Republicans and
this organization was called the
"Farm Bloc" by those whose interests
were closely associated with "Big
In connection with the remarks
made on this subject by Judge Ken
yon, we quote the Iowa Homestead
" 'We were not,' explained Senator
Kenyon, "seeking an undue advant
age over any business, but we did
lope to see the great agricultural in
terests of the_ country receive a
square deal. As soon as it was known
that our meeting had been held, there
went up a hue and cry against the
.fram bloc, so-called in derision. Now,
there had been a Wall street bloc, a
Standard Oil bloc and other blocs,
none of which alarmed the interests
which saw in the agricultural bloc
something highly dangerous.'
i "Senator Kenyon, in defending the
agricultural bloc, called attention to
the insidious influence of the social
bloc. 'If we had joined this bloc, in
stead of organizing a farm bloc, if
we had put on dress suits and gone
out and attended dinners, the ene
mies of the farm bloc wpuld have
.hailed us as among the Nation's
greatest statesmen, men wise and
"Before completing his references
ito the farm bloc, Senator Kenyon re
viewed at some length the various
measures which have been passed
largely through the influence of the
bloc, or which are now pending. He
told of how the bill providing for the
appointment of a representative of
agriculture on -the Federal Reserve
iBoard had passed the Senate. 'I wish
you would help get it out of the
house,' he said. There are 40,000,
O00 farmer folk in the United States.
It is right and proper, then, that a
representative of agriculture should
lave a place on the Federal Reserve
The "Farm Bloc" is proving a
thorn in the side of "the big Eastern
interests who are not accustomed to
laving their monopoly of "Blocc" in
Congress disturbed. Eastern papers
depending upon Wall Street interests
for their support are already suggest
ing the defeat of Congressmen who
are favoring the farmers. They wlil
be well organized, but it is doubtful
that they will find the farmers, and
those interested in the welfare of
those engaged in the agricultural and
livestock industry, either asleep or
unorganized. Those who oppose giv
ing the farmers of the country fair
and necessary legislation can be out
voted ten to one.-Farm and Ranch.
Timely Notes on Beef Cattle.
Clemson College, April 3.-Keep
a master's eye on the thin cows that
will drop calves this month. A little
feed and attention while cows with
young calves are being turned to pas
ture will insure the raising of a good
calf crop and will mean a better calf
crop for the next year. Give the cow
and her calf an even start with the
coming of 'the new grass (that is,
feed them a little longer), and they
-will both do welL The calf will get
ready for the market quicker and the
--cow will bring you. a better calf next
Do not let the bull run with the
..cows this month for this will make
next year's calves come in January,
.which is too early. Feed the bull well
and have him in good condition when
you turn him in the pasture in June.
Castrate all scrub and grade bull
calves and get a purebred bull for
Dehorn all yearlings that you fail
ed to get in March. Cut horns close
io the head, taking of a little skin.
Select a calf that you are going
to kill this summer in the "Beef
Club" and keep him growing and fat
that you may have a good quality of
beef for yourself and your neighbors

BAGGED BOTH FISH AND FOWL
Dover (N. H.) Man Shot Drake and
Got Pickerel That the Bird Had
George Hayer of Doyer, N. H., tells
a remarkable hunting story, which is
vouched for by witnesses, says the
Manchester Union. Walting patiently
behind a blind at Ayers pond In Bar
rington, Hayer and his companions
saw a large s he ll drake alight on
rock just outside of gunshot on the
opposite side of the pond, and after
making quite a lively turn tnere took
to the air again and alighted in the
water 30 yards from the blind. Hayer
fired and killed the drake.
An abnormal bunch or swelling no
ticed in the bird's throat, which ap
peared to 'have nearly shut off the
breathing, was not Investigated until
the return to town, where lt was found
that"the drake had captured a large
pickerel and had devoured the head
after which lt had attempted to swal
low the rest of the fish. The body
of the pickerel stuck in the drake'
throat. It measured 14 inches in
length. The drake weighed, without
the fish, four and one-half pounds
Hayer and his friends were served
drake with pickerel on the side at the
spread that followed the hunting ex
"AEROPLANE" NO NEW WORD
Was First Used by French Inventor
to Describe Flying Machine,
. In the Year 1879. '
The word, "aeroplane," only recently
admitted to the dictionary, has bi*en
traced back to trie year 1879. In that
year a Frenchman named Tatln, ap
plied the name "aeroplane" to a flying
machine of his own Invention driven
by compressed air.
Possibly It was from Tarin that was
borrowed the corresponding English
word (similar save for the accent) by
Ella Merchant and Alice Jones, joint
authors of "Unveiling a Parallel"
(189?!). The hero of this novel is'a
birdraan who soars in his "aeroplane"
to Mars, where, among other wonder
ful things, he finds woman on terms
of perfect equality with man.
Fifteen years later H. G. Wells used
the word, "aeroplle" in one of his
novels, but the term didn't become
popular. And nowadays the word is
being condensed into the two-syllabled
word, "airplane."-The Leatherneck.
