GRANGE REPRESENTATION. ,
The Preeent Plan For Delegates to the
National Grange Criticised.
The present representation of every
state in the national grange consists
only of the state grange master and his
wife, who are elected by the state
grange. This method gives a stab
with less than a thousand members
just as much voting power iv the na
tional grange as the states with 50,000
to 100,000 members. As we have said
many times before, remnrks the Ohio
Farmer, this is manifestly unfair and
un-American. In practice it has in re
cent years given rise to a grave situa
tion in the national grange liecause the
! masters of the more inert grange states
have combined against the masters of
> active grange states in petty personal
| obstruction of policies for broadening
and strengthening the influence of the
Order in general. The situation became
;so acute that a movement to increase
j the representation proportionately took
active form a few years ago. but as yet
no change has lieen made, the mannet
iof selecting the additional representa
1 tion being the bone of contention. A
proposition favored by one faction and
of doubtful merit because of the chance
for abuse would secure the additional
representation through proxy votes to
be cast by the state master. The Mich
igan state grange plan, reported unfa
vorably and voted down at the last na
tional grange meeting, proposed that
the state master represent the first
10.000 members and that an additional
delegate be sent for each succeeding
10,000. It Is hoi>ed that the 1912 ses
sion of the national grange at Spokane
Wash., will result iv the recommenda
tion of n fair and proportional repre
sentatlon plan. It may be that 10.00 C
is too small a limit; 20.000 would be
more economical and would give pro
portionate influence to the active and
strong grange states. Several of the
most progressive grange states have a!
ready urged this reform, and it should
not lie delayed. Another important
change in grange law and practice pro
posed at the last national grange ses
sion should be adopted this year. A
committee was selected to report or
the advisability of providing for dired
vote of ihe general membership on na
tional grange action. We believe that
this is advisable. It certainly Is In line
with grange belief in direct legislation
»Dd it is Just as much needed in grange
law and policy making as in state gov
eminent. It would give greater infiu
ence to grange policies because it
would eliminate hasty action.
Shorter Session* Demanded.
National Master Wilson has an
nouneed that he Is in favor of shorten
ing the sessions of the national grange
and asks the co-operation of officers tc
that end. He is endeavoring to carry
out the spirit of the resolution adopted
at the last session to the effect that all
business should be transacted within
one week. If all officers' reports can Ik
n;:.de ready for the first roll call the
end sought will be materially hastened
A Good Choice.

Marie. Dec. 10 to 13; Minnesota, at
Minneapolis, Dec. 17 to 20.
The County Deputies.
Neve York has flftj--three county
deputies, and the grange law makes it
the duty of the deputy to visit each
of the granges in his district at least
once during the year. Weak and
struggling granges should receive his
esiiecial attention. W. H. Vary, the
state master, well Rays that the work
of the deputy is not fully realized and
appreciated always hy members of the
order and often by the deputy himself.
The next meeting of the Pennsyl
vania state grunge promises to be one
of the most important in its history.
There are almost MO granges in good
standing now in the state, uud as each
grange is entitled to send two dele
gates to the state meeting that body
will have nearly if not the full vot
ing meiulHTship of 1,600. At this ses
sion the biennial election will take
place. Clearfield from Dee. 10 to 13
will lie the center of grange activities.
Several granges In Ohio and else
v. here have constructed permanent wa
tering troughs along the public roads—
certainly a worthy application of the
grange injunction regarding kindness

TRIBUNE FOR JOB PRINTING.
Economy Demands That It Ba Rele
gated to the Scrap Heap.
In the older steel plants of email and
medium size and even in pi suits ihat
have grown up from a modest begin
ning to liecome Immense concerns em
ploying thousands of men we hud that
the auxiliary i«jwer machinery has
t>een given little consideration Iv
modernizing the machinery In general.
But with auxiliary uiHcblnery it is very
different. In inauy cases air com
pressors and pumps, even such impor
tant machines as blo«-iug engines have
been kept in service long after tbeir
days of usefulness were over, when
they were using enough ste:!tu to pay
for a new machine in a very short time
and to make the purchase of u;itodate
machinery a splendid investment. The
reasons for this method of procedure
were thai the new auxiliary power ma
chines would not show an increased
output of steel, nor would they show
a grent saving in the cost of produc
tion of the steel.
In many localities fuel was cheap.
In some cases the steel companies
owned their mines close at baud and
coal could be had for the digging. In
a few instances byproduct gas fur
nished all the fuel required. In these
cases there was some excuse for keep
lng inefficient machinery in use.
More recently, however, condition?
have taken a decided change. The
price of coal has advanced, making It
urgent to be more careful in the use of
It. Steel companies have found that
it pa.vs better to sell the coal than to
bom so much of it themselves. Then,
again, the supply of natural gas in
some localities has become limited or
has given out entirely—another reason
for saving fuel.
In later years competition has be
come keener. Large plants have been
built, and the older concerns have had
to conserve their resources in order to
fsißSl this composition. Engineers have
been employed to look after the saving
of fuel—competent, trained engineer*
with efficient assistants. These depart
merits keep a sharp watch on all the
power machinery, steam, air, pas and
water. Their business is to make effi
cjency tests on the machinery, meas
ure power used by the different mills
and departments, cheek up the fuel
consumption of the boiler houses and
l>e ready nt any time to recommend the
removal of n machine as soon as it be
comes a paying proposition to replace
It with a machine of greater efficiency.

A New Elixir of Life.
Dr. Frank It. Starkey of Philadel

startled the medical world, has mad)
known to the public some remarkable
results of a series of experiments on
which he has worked for Beveral years
first on his aged mother, then on him
self and fifty friends. His object
was to find an extract from the vari
ous ductless glands of the body which
will prolong life and make the aged
look and fee! much younrer. Dr.
Starkey says he is a Being testiwonia'
of his success, as the treatment be has
taken has made him look ten yean
younger, and that the same is true ol
others. He calls his remedy the "poly
glandular extract" and says It Is a
combination of extracts from the thy
rold. pultnry and other ductless giands.
It is administered by injections into
muscles or blood. It is said to raise

The successful dairyman must set his
mark high; it will not do for him to be
content with such a herd as his aver
age neit-hbor possesses unless indeed,
he is very fortunately located. But
his t»ur)>ose must be an intelligent one.
He must associate with good dairymen
and read good dairy literature. He
should join aud attend the fairs where
dairy cows are exhibited. He should
join's dairy association aDd should help
organize a co-operative breeders' asso
ciation in his own community if one is
not already in operation. He should
buy a few pure-bred cattle at least ev
en tho he may have to pay well for
Feeding problems that interest dair
ymen generally should receive his
careful attention and he should ever
keep his mind open to receive new ide
as. He should get a Babcock tester
and learn to use it. He must know
what his cows are doing and this is the
only practical way to find out. Tn do
ing these things he will be keepig close
to the successful man and this is the
only safe way. —[Farm and Home.
The people of this state have
some reasons for complaining about
the weather we tusrs been exper
iencing for the last few dnys. as
tl is kind of weather is something
that we are not used to no'- are
we prepared for It It has not been
cold enough to do damage to any
\egetation of any kind. but the
dampness under foot has made it
disagreeable for pedestrians. This
is the one time of our lives that
we should particularly be proud of
the Puget Sound climate, when we
read the papers all over the country
and see the suffering and privations
that the people in other portions
of the country. We are constrain
ed to say that surely goodness and
mercy has been with us. The
little snow we had here failed to
even make good sleighing, and
what little did fall, stnyed with us
for so short awhile that we feel
as though we really haven't had
any at all.—Arlington Chronicle.
