William Jennings Bryan has un

Gen. Nelson A. Miles has given
no cearer proof of his capitula

of time than his emergence from
the silence of forty years to justify
his action at the capture of Jeffer

time since that incdient, and it
were, far better that he should
have kept his grim silence to the
end. His explanations fail to ex
plain, his justifications to justify,

such lines the labor of the con

FORTY YEARS AFTCR APPOMATTOX.
Forty years ago tomorrow began
the beginning of the end of Appo
mattox, which fell on the 9th of
April, 1865, with a crash that
shook the south to its foundations
and all but banished hope from the
hearts of the Sons of the Confed
eracy. Appomattox may be viewed to
day as a war event having a pecu
liar distinction. The. verdict of
April 9t 1865, has proved a final
one. At the end of forty years its

Yorktown may have to be fought
over before the fate of North
America is decided. But the cause
that went down at Appomattox
was lost forever. Sons of Yankees
and sons of Johnnies may one day
come to blows, but not over the ap

hands across some new bloody
chasm, but the chasm bridged by
Grant and Lee is filled into the
level with adamant.
Appomattox was not a sudden
crushing of the defeated which
forced the reluctant cry, "Enough!"
It was a sequel to fighting, not
itself a fight, a climax foreseen for

"There are still extensive re
gions in the United States where
barn manure is considered a farm
nuisance. In a county in Oregon
the neighbor is welcome to haul
away this manure, and that neigh
bor is likely to be a thrifty German
with a large garden; in other Ore
gon counties the manure is burned.
In a California county the manure
is dumped into ravines; it goes to
the creek in Oklahoma; it is hauled
to a holo in the ground or put on
one side of the field in Kansas; in
South Dako ;a farmers burn it to be
rid of it, and sometimes burn it for
fuel. In North Dakota farmers
haul barn manure to piles and leave
it there until it disappears; farmers
in Missouri deposit it by the road
side, and in Idaho scrapers are
used, and it is often seen piled as
high as a barn.

manure a nuisance, but they have
a grievance against it. claiming in
