The Application of Reciprocity.
In reply to a correspondent who
wants "more liuht," and who fails to
nee how the reciprocity idea can be
applied to either the policy of protec
tion or free trade, the Farm and Fire
side says: There should he no difficul
ty in understanding that. If the
United States were to say to Germa
ny, 'Remove all the customs' duties
you impoHe on your imports from us,
and we will remove all the duties on
our imports from you," the principle
would be applied to free trade. For
if these two countries were to agree
on this proposition, the result would
be absolute free trade between them.
Further, it is the only way by which
this country can secure unrestricted
trade with other countries. If we
were to abolish our whole tariff sys
tern, and other countries retain theirs,
our so-called free trade would be a
very one-sided affair. On the other
hand, if the United States were to
say to Brazil, "We will impose a
duty on the coffee that we import
from you unle-v you remove your
duties on our flour and agricultural
machinery," the principle is applied
on the lines of the protective policy.
The duties in this cuse are on im
ports that do not compete with the
products of either country. Under a
tariff for revenue only, duties are
laid only on articles not produced in
the country by which they are im
ported. Under a protective tariff
such articles are placed on the free
list, and duties levied on imports that
enter into competition with the pro
ductions of the country. Reciprocity
on such articles as are not produced
by tno country into which they are
imported, is right in line with the
protective policy. Reciprocity,there
fore, can be used either to secure true
free trade or to benefit and strength

The Charm of Good Manners.

We rejoice in them as we do in i
lovely sunset view, or a piece ot ar

another attraction in the magnetic
power they exert upon all beholders
in setting them at ease, in sweeping
away shyness, awkwardness and re
straint, and in stimulating them to
the expression of whatever is best
worth cherishing within them. It is
undoubtedly true that the presence of
tine-manners, whether it be in the
home or the social circle, in the
work-shop or the counting-room, in
the visit of charity, or the halls of
legislation, has an immediate effect
in reproducing itself in diffusing hap

The Supreme Court of Minnesota
has lately rendered a decision of
much interest to the business com
munity in declaring that bank checks
aro not cash, and do not poasess legal
value as money until cashed. In
other words, the giving of a check on
a bank is not a payment when passed
between debtor and creditor, but
only becomes so when the money is
received on it.
The court holds that in accepting
a check from a debtor there is no
legal presumption that the creditor
takes it in absolute payment, but
only conditionally, or as a written
acknowledgement of the debt Where
goods are sold for cash on delivery,
and the purchaser tenders payment
in a check or draft on his banker,
such payment is only conditionaljand
the delivery of the goods, if made, is
also conditional. If the check is
dishonored on presentation, the sell
er may retake the goods for the pur
chase money, even from the possess
ion of a third or innocent party, un
less it can be shown that the seller
has been guilty of such negligence as
would estop him from recovering in
This decision is among the first
rendered by higher courts that is so
fitr-reaching, and if supported by
other high tribunals, will settle a
mooted question in commercial cir
cles. The same principle has been
applied to unpaid notes by one or
two courts, which have held that the
seller does not lose his lien, for pur
chase money, on goods sold, until he
receives the actual cash, and may re
take at any time prior thereto if the
indebtedness be not met at maturity.

The Amount of Produce a Well Man

shown by the following statement

Beans as a Farm Crop.
A late issue of the American Econ
omist says that under the new tariff
law the duty on beans has been in
creased 10 per cent ad valorem, to for
ty cents per bushel of sixty pounds.
The old duty was equivalent to from
ten to fifteen cents per Uushel. Very
few people realize the enormous prod
uct of this staple food throughout the
country, and the large export trade
in this article that may be built up.
Beans may be raised on any poor
land, or any sandy soil, the Pacific
coast being probably the best adapt
ed soil we have for them, but there is
hardly an acre of land throughout
New England which has been aban
doned on account of failure of crops
that would not produce a large quan
tity of beans. Although we have
one of the best countries in the world
for this agricultural product, last year
was imported nearly $1,000,000
worth, part of which was in turn ex
ported to South American countries.
But there Is no reason why the far
mers iu the United States shou'd not
produce sufficient for the home con
sumption, and also sufficient for the
entire export trade. Two years ago
S uth America took a very large
quantity of beans, on account of the
failure of certain crops, and for this
export trade we used very largely the
small pea bean which was raised in
Mexico. There being no direct
means of transporation from Mexico
to South America, the product came
through the United States and was
largely handled by dealers in New
York City. The new tariff on beans
is about three times as high as under
the old law. The results will be that
if the farmers are willing to put in a
sufficient acreage, not a bushel would
be imported next year. It is a very
profitable crop, and there are sections
of New York where farmers have
raised as high as eighteen bushels to
an acre, at an average of $1.30a bush
el. This is certainly better than
wheat, or corn, or any other great
staple cereal. If the farmers of the
country will put in 100,000 additional
acres next year, it will necessarily
take just so much land out of other
products, and thus increase mixed
farming, which is the source of the
greatest agricultural success. The
raising of beans is a certain and easy
crop, and is only a failure when a
heavy rain storm pelts the vines to
the ground at harvest time. When
gathered the bean crop has a great
advantage over many others, in that
it is ready for local consumption
without going through any process.
This fact has much to do with unifor
mity of prices, and the farmer in sel
ling does not have to wait upon the

There is more, iron and better iron work on the "Tennessee" than on any other

Our Wood-work is thoroughly saturated in boiling linseed oil.
We do not use any cheap or mineral paints ; our work is all painted with the best
brands of paint, ground by ourselves in pure linseed oil, and finished with the best brands
of English varnish.
Our spokes are driven by mucliiuery in hot glue.
Our tire-furnnce gives uniform heat, and our tire cooler uniform shrinkage, which se

Our timber is all AIR DRY and thoroughly seasoned. The axles are made of hest
hickory: the tongues, bolsters, hounds, and spokes of best white oat ; the hubs of New
York black birch, "the best in the world," and our beds of clenr Tennessee yellow poplar.
Our tongues and front hounds are so constructed that but little weight rests upon the
necks of the team.
The hubs are steamed when driving the spokes, which shrinks them to the spokes,
making the spokes as firm as if they grew there.
The bolsters are plated their entire length, and the king bolts are countersunk, which
prevents them from wearing the bottom of the beds.
Our I?OX STRAPS arc turned over the sides so as to give additional strength to the

The laws of health are taught in
the schools; but not in a way to be of
much practical benefit and are never
illustrated by living examples, which
in many cases might easily be done.
If some scholar, who had just con
tracted a cold, was brought before
the school, so that all oould hear the
dry, loud cough and know its signifi
cance; see the thin wliile coating ou
the tongue and later, as tho cold de
veloped, see the profuse watery ex
pectoration and thin watery discharge
from the nose, not one of them would
ever forget what the first symptoms
of a cold were. The scholar would
then be given Chamberlain's Cough
llemedy freely, that all might see
that even a severe cold could be cur
ed in one or two days, or at least
greatly mitigated, when properly
treated as soon as the first symptoms
appear. This remedy is famous for
