There is a constantly growing interest
in improved live stock among tho farmers

Thoso farmen who first took steps to
improve their stock are now reaping the
benefits thereof. This encourages those
who require ocular demonstrations before
moving in a matter, to go into it with a
rush. Farmer and Fruit Grower.
Persons having friends visiting them
from other places, or those going away to

a favor by reporting the same to us. We
would willingly note these changes, but
often we do not hear of them until it is too
late to mention the facts as items of news
We cannot be expected to know the com
ings and cro'ions of all our citizens. Some
persons act a little singular in this respect.
They will not mention a fact of this kind
to the editor, but shut themselves up like
a clam-shell and maintain an ominous
silence; and if tho poor editor who cannot
bo everywhere present, fails to notice the
arrival in town of themselves and friends
or the departure therefrom, and happens to
give some one else a notice of that charac
ter, tbey become offended and denounce
him as partial. These personal notices are
legitimate items of new, and the proper
thing to do is to speak of it to the editor,
or better still, write down the facts name
where from, etc. then your friends will
not be slighted.

Washinoton, Dec. 17, 1884.
The question of interest in Washington
ww is tho Spanish treaty submitted by
Minister Foster. As has already been pub
lished, the terms of this treaty are such
that its confirmation would reduce tho tar
iff on tobacco 50 percent, and on sugar in
a similarly radical manner. While tho
senate has not yet reached a discussion of
the treaty, its merits have been pretty thor
oughly debated by the the senators and
members, individually, and it is evident
that it will encounter very strong opposi
tion. Tho president, secretary of state and
Minister Foster havo presented their argu
ments in its favor, but the business inter
ests involved have replied with vigor. The
house also is inclined to treat tho matter
coldly. The democrats, as a party, are not
disposed to let a republican administration
deal thus peremptorily with tariff revision,
and a very strong clement of tho republi
cans object very decidedly to any such re
ciprocity. They aro all strong protection
ists, and it is generally understood that Mr.
Blaine is inspiring tho opposition on that
score. Xiesiues an mis, mere is a ppiru oi
angry resentment on the part of mauy
members of tho house of representatives at
what they term an infringement of their
prerogatives, claiming that tho executive
is practically usurping tho functions of the
egislative power. So, altogether, accord
ing to present indications, tho prospect of
tho treatv. or for that matter any of the
treaties, are not particularly bright.
I understand that Messrs. Morrison,
Mills, Blount and tho speaker havo decided
that there shall bo no tariff bill reported
from tho ways aud means committee this
session. Mr, Morrison wants to test ine
sentiments of the new members elected to
tho next house before urging the question
again. He hopes then to pass a bill of his
own creation instead of pressing Mr. Hew
ltts measure. It is said that tho revenue
reformers will have unquestionable control
of the new house, and it is asserted by
Morrison's friends that tho republicans of
Missouri aod other states where the anti
protection sentiment is strong have pledged
themselves to guDDort a bill to reduce
The announcement is made that Mr. Ran
dall will soon start on a trip to tho west
and smth. Ho will go as far south
Birmingham, Ala., and will visit among
other cities, Atlanta, Nashville and Louis
ville. His wife will accompany biiu, and
be is booked for a number of speeches,
There is no special occasion or event at any
of the cities to take Mr. Randall there. It is
given out that he merely takes advantage
of the recess to meet his southern triend
who have repeatedly invited him to do so.
but it may bo that tho astute Samuel is
laying his wires for some southern delega
tion in the convention of '88, or getting
nearer the present time, for votes for the
speakership of the next congress.
The statue of Dupont, which is now in
place, will bo unveiled with appropriate
ceremonies on the 20th inst. Senator Biy
ard will bo the orator of tho occasion. The
statue is considered a very creditable work.
It bears a very striking likeness to the of
ficer commemorated, and makes a notable
addition to the art treasures of tho capital.
The figure is ot heroic size, in bronze, and
the subject is represented standing upon
tho deck of his vessel, with his head uncov
ered and raised as if gazing at a vessel in
tho distance. In both hands ho holds a hi
nocular, which has just been lowered from
his eyes, Hio action being followed by an
intent gaze with tho naked cyo. The sculp
tor was Mr. Launt Thompson, of Philadel
phia, and tho cost of the Btutuo was $13,000
and of the pedestal and preparations $G800.
It is now pretty well understood that
congress will not do much legislation out
side the appropiiation bills at this session.
Tho republicans aro making a frantic ef
fort to havo Dakota admitted to the sister
hood of states, but tlio democrats feel that
tho republicans count moro than their le
gitimate Btrength in the senate and in tho
house. Nevada with only about 12,000
voters, most of them mere squatters at that,
sends two senators and one representative
to congress and counts threo in the electo
ral college. If Nevada were a democratic
state, what a theme she would bo for Mr.
Blaine. Sho would answer even better
than the solid south for an Augusta speech.
There should bo a constitutional amend
ment to remand a stato to tho territorial
condition when her population and wealth
havo deteriorated, as in tho caso.of Nevada,
until sho is poorer and less populous than
an average county in the more thickly set
It seems that tho absurd story going
around about Dorsey having given $100,
000 to Boblngersoll aa his feo In tho Btar
route trial was mado out of whole cloth. I
asked an Intimate friend of Dorsey about
tho matter and ho told me that there was
not a word of truth In it. Tho fact is that
Dorsey never paid Ingorsoll a cont for al)
the work ho did for hlra. Col. Ingorsoll,
by the way, has returned to Washington
with a fresh stock ot highly irreligious
talk. He has delivered about fifty lectures
during the past two months, and bis nut
profits from theso talks are considerably
