Business Prospects Are Bright.
New York. It. O. Dun & Co.'s week
ly review of trade sajs: Xot in a half
doende has a year opened with the
business outlook so uenernllv auspi
cious as tho year 1910. Some of the
Tierplexins Issues which contributed t
the crisis of 1907 still remain unsolved,
while tho question of high prices has
become more acute, but It would seem
as If 'business confidence were not go
ing to permit those tilings to Interfere
with the future progress of Industry
and commerce. In Hie grent iron and
steel trade, which Is so basic, the splilt
of optimism Is particularly conspicu
ous. Advances are made In heavy cotton
goods, such as duck, tickings, brown
suitings nnd some other lines. Trad
ing Is on a moderate scale, but shin
ments of merchandise on old orders
are very heavy. Fine fancy cottons
continue In good demand. Import
trado continues quiet with the farnst,
but there Is some catterlng trade
from nilscolleneous ports. Southern
cotton yarn spinner? lmvp promul
gated a new schedule of yarn prices on
a level about 10 pur cent higher than

Trade with boot and shoo manufac
turers continues generally quiet. The
hide market Is dull nnd weak, with
transactions light and unimportant.

SECURING FARM ICE SUPPLY
Frozen Chunks as Workable as Wood
and Can Easily Be Cut Into
Any Size Desired.
Ice is as workablo as wood, so can
be either split or sawed Into desir
able sections for handling nnd stor
ing. Commercial ice making Is gener
ally carried on with an eye single to
rapidity, rather than accuracy In cako
dimensions, so the ice plow is used
and the cakes split off, thus leaving
the under side of each cake Irregular,
making close storage Impossible. Tho
flower nnd better process for tho
farmer Is the Ice saw, or, In lieu of
this, the common crosscut snw, which
Is found on nearly all farms, writes 10.
I. Keascy, In Orange Judd Farmer.
Inkc or pond Ice baa the preferenco
over river Ice, due to the fact that
there Is no current beneath. Pond
Ice freezes thicker, Is less llnblo to
contain air bubbles, meaning clenror
and more uniform cakes, which In it
self Insures longevity to, the Btored
Avoid slush or snow Ice ns much
as possible. Watch for those several
days of continuous hard freezing, then
tap the Ice field nt its best. Six-Inch
Ice Is, of course, good, but 18-lnch Is
better, as the thicker tho cako the
better its keeping quality. Clear tho
field of snow, and with either line or
straight edge mark off the cakes to
Exterior of Ice House,
be cut, using nny shnrp-polnted In
strument for the marking. An old file
makes a good tool for the purpose.
Mark the field off Into lS-lnch
squares, being careful to have cakes
cut exactly to measure, for In no othor
way can close storage lie accom
plished. Cut out corner cako with nn
ax and start the saw exactly on tho
line, holding snw straight up and
down. Remove one hnudle from the
saw, nnd in its place attach a smnll
weight, said weight adding much to
the rapidity of the sawing. Two pairs
of Ice tongs at about GO cents eacli
complete the outfit for tho farmer's
Klaborately constructed Ice houses
are a delusion and a snare. No great
er mistake can be made In tho stor
age of Ice than putting It Into air
tight compartments. First thoughts,
of course, tells us that such a build
ing will hold outside heat In check
and avoid circulation, but this Idea Is
all wrong. In fnct, Ice to keep well
must have both side nnd top circula
tion, for confined moisture Is the very
medium that wastes away the cakes.
Nt) tidy farmer cares to spoil the
appearance of his home by erecting
an unsightly building, so we would
urge thnt good, Btnooth drop siding be
used for outside, and this painted;
while for the Inside nny old lumber
will do, for nil that Is necessary is
something to hold tho sawdust used
In packing from the outer wall.

A little varnish daubed on the

Hay from the different legumes con
tains nbout one-third as much nitro

Cement is a protnotor of honlth for
man and beast Cement cellars keep
away dampness. Cement wnlks dry
quickly after a rain, minimizing the
danger from wet feet. Cement cis
terns provide pure rain water.
An Idea of the great preservative
quality of good paint can easily be
gotten in an old settled section of
country by noting the condition of
buildings that have been kept painted
compared with that of buildings on
which the painting haB been neg
lected. Uncle Sam's census man will be
nround early next year to get somo
substantial facts regarding your farm
ing operations and equipment. Begin
now to calculate things. Weigh the
milk of your cows and test it. Your
especial items may not be worth much
In tho sum total for the nation, but
they will be worth much to you. It
will tend to develop business hablta
that will help to make dairying pay.
Care of Tle Drains.

A tllo drain through the garden is
worth five times as much as the cost
of the drain. Tho better the garden

President Notifies State Department
Deaths of Groce and Cannon Were
Illegal That Resentment of United
States Is Just.
Washington, Jan. 8. Oreat Britain
has intervened in the Nicaragua!! af
'air. The secret of tho continued
presence In Nicuragunn wnters of
he Urittsh cruiser Scylla was re
vealed when its commander sent nn
iltlinatum to tho generals command
ing tho revolutionary and government
lorces of Nicaragua that theie must
be no fighting within the town of
Will Land Forces.
The growl of the llrltish lion Is
contained In the following peremptory
note from the captain of tho Scylla to
Generals Estrada and lluraldo:
"Tho majority of the houses In Orey
town being owned by British subjects,
here must bo no lighting within that
town, If any does take place, there,
I shall consider myself nt liberty to
nnd a strong nrmud party and guns
o stop it."
Madrlz Declares Execution Illegal.
A telegram was received last night
at the Btuto department, through Rear
Admiral Kimball, stating that Presi
dent Madrlz had Qsked him to com
municate to this government that after
a personal study of the circumstances
attending the execution of Groce nnd
Cnnnon ho profoundly lamented tho
act; that he was compelled to declaro
It illegal, and '.hat the resentment of
tho government nnd people of the
I'nitcd States was Just.
Interpreted by the Btuto department
this means that Zelaya is to be taken
back and tried as a common murdoror
in the criminal courts of the country
from which he recently fled to escape
threatened punishment for his net.

by the United States grand Jury.
About twenty corporations and 110
individuals are covered by tho indict

ITS DONE BY TAFT'S ORDER
Order of Dismissal Comes After All
Day Session of Cabinet President
Says Deposed Officer Had De
stroyed His Usefulness.
Washington, Jan. 8. Glfford Pin
chot, chlof forostcr of tho United
States, was discharged from tho serv
Ico by Secretary Wilson of the agri
cultural department. The dismissal
was at tho order of President Taft,
after an all-day session of tho cabinet
on the subject of Mr. Plnchot's letter
read In tho sennto by Senator Dolll
ver. Technically tho dismissal Is for vio
lation of executive order 1142, Issued
November 2G, 1909, by President Taft
forbidding subordinates In depart
ments to communicate directly with
Affair Far Reaching.
But the president realizes that tho
affair has assumed much greater im
portance than discipline of a govern
ment employe. Plnchot's letter wbb
the defiance of tho Roosovolt, or
"Back from Hlba" adherents, and Mr.
Taft was loath to start a fight that is
destined, he believes, perhaps to make
the next house Domocrntlc nnd to en
danger tho present administration nt
thi next election. That Is why ho has
ben lenient and dilatory in splto of
the aggression of Plnchot, and his re
gret was expressed in these final
paragraphs of his lettcrr
"I should bo glad to regard what
has happened only as a personnl re
ffectlon, so that 1 could pass It over
and take no ofTlclal cognlznnco of it
But other and higher considerations
must govern me. When the people
of tho United States elected me pres
ident thoy placed me In an office of
the Highest dignity and charged me
with the duty of mnlntaiiting that due
nnd propor respect for the ofllce on
tho part of my subordinates. More
over, If 1 were to pass over tills mat
ter In silence, It would bo most de
moralizing to the discipline of the
executive branch of the government.
Usefulness Is Destroyed
"By your own conduct you have de
stroyed your usefulness ns a helpful
subordinate of tho government nnd It
therefore now becomes my duty to
direct the secretary of agriculture to
remove you from your office as the
foroBter. Very slncorely yours,
"WILLIAM II. TAFr.
"Hon. Glfford Plnchot, Forostor."
Tho dismissal of Mr. Plnchot, In
stead of ending tho troublo, only
starts tho war in the open, Instead of
L. R. Glnvis, who made tho original
charges, Is en routo toi Washington
with his nttornoy, Francis J. Honey.
James R. Garfiold, former secretary
of tho Interior, and ono of tho lead
ing members of tho Roosovolt move
