(acted In the chamber of the House
of Representatives yesterday at noon.
The Senate and House of the Legisla
ture met in Joint session, ratified the
election of Reed Smoot, and listened
to addrcssos by Senator Smoot, Gov.
Wells and Supreme Justice Raskin.
The attendance of spectatois was
hardley so large as on the previous day
but those who were present were in
an enthusiastic frame of mind and the
demonstration accorded to the Sona
ta relect was all that he could have de
sired. The only note of discord in the
whole ceremony, if discord it could bo
called, was the address of Gov. Wells,
In which ho studiously refrained from
complimenting the Legislature on its
choice, and even said that he had no
comment to make. It was plainly
. f .vldcnt, however, that the Governor's
jf ( Jtettltude was prompted by a heartfelt
i ' desire for the welfare of his native
State and not by any lower or less
The document presented to Mr.
Smoot by President Allison of the
Senate reads as follows.

Zfr directed tho cleik of the Senate to

The Chaplain of tho Senate ottered
prayer, praying for the Legislators,
the President, tho people of the State,
the National Congress and the suffer
ers from the coal famine.
Ry direction of the presiding ofllcer,
the Chief Clerk of the House read such
part of the minutes of the Houso as
related to the election of United States
"If there Is no objection tho min
utes of the Joint session will show that
tho cnthe Journal of the House was
read," said the President.
There was no objections
A delay of llc minuteswasoceaslon
ed by the failure of tho Senate Journal
to airive fiom the printer. In this In
terval the members conversed with
each other and with their fi lends.
Those who were piesent at the Sena
torial election two j cais ago noted the
enthe absence of lloweisfiom the desks
of tho members. Not a (lower was in
sight save some artlllclal blossoms on
the ladles' hats.
The Senate Jouinalairlved and was
read. At 12:15 President Allison
"The Journals of the House and
Senate having shown that Reed Smoot

from the State of Utah."
The announcement was received
with applause and Mr. Nash immed
iately ottered a resolution that a com
mltee of four be appointed to notify

Sugar Beet Growing.
Theic Is a tendency In the county to
blame tho Sugar Factory for the part
ial failuicof the beet crop last season.
As tho failure was duo mere to tho
dijncss of the season than to any
other cause, we should be more con
seivative In our criticisms. Every
thing now indicates an abundant wat
er supply for the coming season and a
very favorable season for the beet
growers and wo believe that our farm
ers w ill not miss it by increasing their
acicage over last year.

Bills now before the Law-making
Body of the Commonwealth
and Their Proceedings.
A bill has been Introduced into the
Senate which provides for the appoint
ment for a dairy and food commis
sioner and dcilnes the standaul of
puilty of certain foods, and ptohlblts
the sale of foods below the standaid.
Senator Whltmoro introduced a bill
to abolish tho olllce of dlsti let attor
ney. He claims It vts the State
2.",000 a j ear to maintain these olll
ceis and thinks their labor can bo
peifouned by the county attoinevs.
We think this about light and hope
tho bill will become a law.
Senator Barnes wants to adopt the
Metric Sj stem of weights and nicas
uies. This sjstcm will come some
time but we aio doubtful If the time
Is llpe for it vet.

the expenditure of public money foi
picket knives and fountain pens for
the use or Senators. We have cvoij

money for such things," and the tax

But the bill passed Just the same.
BRITISH CROWDS ARE 8TOLID,
Do Not Make the Noise That la Heard
at American Gathering.
One of tho things that most Im
pressed Oen. Wood was the stolidity,
of tho London crowds. Thoy disap
pointed him. He had heard bo much
of "British cheers" that he expected
to see all American outbursts thrown
into the shade. Instead of that ho
found less show of enthusiasm, even
when the king and queen rods
through the city, than may be met
with any day in tho states at a base
ball match. This is a comment which
American visitors often make, and not
without reason. The London crowd
Is more hearty and vociferous than
tho French or German crowd, but
compared with an American gathering
on any big occasion, a political meet
ing for Instance, a civic welcome to
a victorious admiral, or a vars"y foot
ball match, it Is as Abcr waterfall to
Niagara. On the other hand, it Is
claimed that the Americans do not
really cheer; they yell.
Throughout tho rural districts of '
Berks county, Pa., thoy havo a custnai
of "boiling soap," tho apparatus for
which can usually be seen at aay

occasion, a farmer's daughter paw
her swain approaching, nnd immedi
ately started for tho house to bettor
her appearance, which fact tie
mother explained to tho cnller as ho
camo upon tho sccno. After awhllo
tlio girl appeared, all traces gone of
a few moments before, whereupon tho
enamorod youth Bald:
"Why, you look aa though you had
nover seen nny soap."

II. M. Rawlins Jr. one or our most
successful dairy men has Jist complet
ed one of the llnest and most convcti
barns in the state. In addition to
stall room for his teams and farm
animals he has stalls for twenty four
milch cows. He lias Installed a
small engine that pumps water which
Is piped to evciy stall and Into his
milk house. The engine also runs
his separator, washing machine etc.
Mr. Rawlins hascerainly made things
very convenient about his place and we
would suggest It might bo wioth any
persons time to visit his place and
look over his barn if they contemplate
erecting a slmlllar building.
TO RAISE SALARIES.
Senator Johnson introduced a bill
Tuesday to Increase the salailes of tho
Justices of the Supreme court from
5.t.ono per j ear to 85,000 per jcar.
lie also intiodueeda bill to appio
pilate $50,000 for the stato exhibit at
the St. Louis fair in 1!)04.
It might bo dlserable to pay high
salaries in order to encouiage better
men to serve the state as Judges but
It icems as us tho stato has gotten
along very well so far with $3,000 men
on tho bench and-'we think wo might
contenue to keep houso with them for
some time to come without any vciy
seilous consequences. As to tho
exhibit. We believe It is a good idea
toadveitiso tho stato at all the ex
positions held, but if we have to pay
$."0,000 for each exhibit we are
afraid our revenues will have to be In
creased very matereally. $50,000 is
what the Worlds Fair exhibit cost us,
and it st likes us that $10,000 would be
a heavy enough invcitmcnt to make
at St. Louis.

Should It then prove that nono will

SOME THINGS IT WON'T PAY
The following aic some of tho things '
it is not protltablc for tho farmer to .
do: Ho should not try to farm without
inaiiuie, and should not plant inoro H
acres than ho can take good caro of. ,
Ho should not woik with old and poor !H
tools nor sow unclean seed. Ho must '
not keep poor stock, as a poor cow iH
cats as much as a good one. Ho iH
should not buy at public sales what Is iH
not needed simply because It sells iH
cheap. Hogs, sheep and cattle , ;H
should not be allowed to wander ' l
at tnelr will over their owner's and JH
tho neighbor's premises. The barn- ,H
yard should not drain Into tlio public ,fl
road nor Into a stream, as Is often tho
case. Cattle should not bo allowed
to cat fodder from the stack; It saves .
a little labor but wasto will make IibbbbbI
tho farmer poor. To leave tools of j
any kind lying out In tlio weather or iil
to put thorn away uncleaned Is a bad I
practice. Cattlo must not bo turned 3 U
out onto bare Ileitis In cold weather. 1 ILibbI
An orchard should not be planted , , jH
and tho cattle allowed to brovvso the IH
trees. Vacant places should not be jH
left in a young orchard, nor should a. )H
young orchard remain in grass too jH
long. Of course, all farmers know liVI
weeds should not bo allow ed to occupy tak:
any portion of tlio farm, and bushes lBj
should not occupy several rods ot ' lH
groung along the fence and road. , . jjH
It is a thoughtless and very danger- j ' H
ous thing for a farmer to put his namo H
on any paper presented by a stranger. ifil
It is careless to buy tiees of a perfect MIIibI
stranger, also groceries and such 'rfil
articles as aro easily adulterated. .. 'Jfl
Nine times out of ten ono will bo '' . ,H
cheated by so doing. Buy of ' 1 lLl
