Removal of the Bounty on Dead
Bruins Result In Too Many Live
(Bangor, Me., dispatch). The
Maine legislature at its present ses
sion will he called upon to decldo
which Is the more important, the lire
of a human being or that of a bear.
The legislature tour years ago re
pealed the law providing for the pay
ment of a bdunty of $5 each on bears,
because it had been represented that
the game was becoming scarce, and
that when it came to fun and excite
ment, any sportsman would rather kill
one bear than a dozen deer.
Since the bounty was removed
beaN have been rapidly Increasing, so
that people living In remote regions
have begun to circulate petitions for
the restoration of the bounty. In sec
tions where bears abound sheep rais
ing has been abandoned by many
farmers. The bears eat up the flocks,
and It Is a matter of record that a
yoke of 2-year-old steers were re
cently killed and eaten by bears in
the town of Wesley. In the town of
Byron, it is said, last fall, 27 sheep
Were thus destroyed.
Sorao women and children are
afraid to go into the back lots to pick
berries. Bruin is also hated by or
chardists, because he not only steals
all the sweet apples, but breaks off
limbs as large around as a man's
arm. The country people feel that
they ought not to suffer all this sim
ply In order that plenty of bears may
be raised to furnish sport for visiting
sportsmen. They are asking the legis
lature, accordingly to restore the

It appears that last winter Mr. Get
chell was seized with a lameness and
soreness In hio back which grew worse
and worse till at last it became very
bad and nnde it very difficult for him
to get about at all.
After a tune he heard of a new reme
dy for Ijackache which some of his
friends and neighbors said had cured
them and he determined to try It. The
name of the remedy Is Dodd's Kidney
Pills and Mr. Oetchell has proven that
it 1s a sure cure. He says:
"I used two boxes of Dodd's Kidney
Pills according to directions and my
lame back was entirely cured and I am
all O. K. again. Dodd's Kidney Pills
are as good as represented."
This Temedy Is very popular here and
has worked some remarkable cures of
Backache and Kidney Trouble.
The Organized Militia.
' From the report of Adjt. Gen. Cor
bin, sent to the Federal house of rep
resentatives yesterday. It appears that
there are 118,159 oiganlzed militiamen
in the United States, and that the total
number of men in the country available
for military duty is tO,853,3!)G. The
regular army can be recurited to 100,
000 when necessary. The regulars with
the organized malitla would constitute
a disciplined land force of 218,000 ready
for immediate duty. Behind this large
army Is the reserve of nearly 11.000,000
men, many of whom have had some
experience in the field. It is estimat
ed that an army of 250,000 regulars,
organized militiamen, and others hav
ing military training and experience
could be placed in the field on short
notice. The militia law, enacted a few
days ago by Congress, Is intended to
increase the efficiency of the organized
militia, and to bring it. Into uniformity
as far as can be. with the regular army.
DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CUBED

only one way to cure deafness, and that

caused by fin Inflamed condition of the

When this tub Is Inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or Imperfect hearing, and
when It is entirely closed Deafness is
the result, and unless the Inflammation

We want to say a word about the
morality and patriotism connected
with the payment of small obligations.
We have found in our experience that
it is easier to collect $50 from some
people than It Is the paltry sum of half
a dollar. A man s credit In the com
mnnlty In which he lives is largely de-
termlned by the fidelity and prompt
ness with which he meets his small
obligations. This applies with special
force in the case of men with limited
means to whom a creditable financial
rating to the extent of their ability is
often of the very greatest value.
"Does It pay to put a lightning rod
on the barn?" we are asked. Frankly,
we do not know. Figures for 1902 show
that in a Western state fifty odd barns
were struck by lightning and that none
of these were rodded. Then there were
thousands of barns not rodded which
were not struck either. Theoretically if
the rod is of the right sort and Is prop
erly put up it should form a protection,
but when the points glisten on the root
and the earth connection is defective
or destroyed it is a standing invitation
to Jove to drop a bolt and smite the
property of a fool. We have more faith

A section of the West famous for
many years for Its great crops of on
ions, a crop of 400 or 500 bushels per

years ago, now counts a crop of 1150

being in line with the well established
truth that no one crop can be produced
in large excess in any place and escape
the law of deterioration both in quanti
ty and quality of crop.
A friend In Missouri writes us that
squirrels do not hoard up a supply of
nuts for the winter In any one place,
but bury them in the earth here and
there, where they are dug out as need
ed in winter. This Is one of nature's
cute ways of securing a distribution of
seed, the nuts thus scattered being giv
en just the right treatment to insure
their germination in the spring, the
squirrel not using them all for food.
Rye Is not estimated at lt3 true value
as a fall and early spring forage crop
up In the north country where the snow
falls. Sown on the cut cornfield In
September, then pastured till snow
comes again as soon as it disappears In
the spring it pays well even If the rem
nant Is plowed under In May for other
crops. Grass seed sown on such a field
in March Is almost invariably a sure
catch. This fall and spring rye pasture
Is just the thing for the dairy cows.
An Illinois reader wants to get a piece
of corn land into pasture as quickly
as possible In the spring, and asks
how he had better do it We would put
the land in the best possible shape
with either disk or plow as soon as the
ground was fit to work, sow two bush
els of oats, six quarts of timothy and
three of clover to the acre, and turn the
cows In as soon as the oats were four
or five Inches high. Along the last of
June or as soon as the pats not fed off
got headed out I would run a mower
over the field, when the timothy and
clover would show up and make a good
pasture from then on.
Call This Man Down.
A word to the presiding officers of
farmers' institutes. Enforce a time
limit on the persistent, driveling, wan
dering speaker who is simply stuck on

the life out of such meetings. Invite
something from the many rather than

Class meeting institutes are always
good ones. Because a man sits still in
the audience it is no sign that he does
not know and cannot tell something of
much interest and value to the audi
ence. The very best things brought out
in these meetings are the personal and
practical experiences of successful men

Living Close to the Soil.
The advanced cost of the products of
land is very sharply calling attention to
the old truth that the closer a man
lives to the soil the better he is off. The
tendency has been of late years to get
away from the soil, anywhere, any
business, as far removed from It as pos
sible. If the needs of the food which
the soil produces could have been also
gotten rid of It would not have mat
tered so much, but do what we will the
old problem of something to eat Is be
fore us all three times a day 365 days
In the year. When a man entirely cuts
loose from the soil, he becames at once
dependent. As an illustration of what
we mean we give the bill of fare of a
meal, and this particular meal is only
a type of many which, on the writer's
own table, invited and precipitated a
discussion on this line. The flour of
which the bread was composed, the
coffee and the condiments were not
produced on the farm or In the gar
den, but everything else on the table
was meat, butter, eggs, all the veg
etables, fruits, pickles a list of choice
food products which, had they been
bought, would represent a large slice
of a good salary each year. Then the
absolute wholesomeness and purity of
such food produced at home count for
a little the heaping panful of straw
berries Just fresh from the garden, the
fresh laid eggs, the Jersey cream a
pitcherful. When a man has to buy
these things, only the few can afford
such liberally. Then, better than all,
is the daily consciousness of being able
to do it all yourself, the feeling of in
dependence realized, and the resulting
development of all the better side of
one-nature in the doing of it. The typ
ical American home of the coming
years will be one where all this may be
done, where man will still retain hla
God ordained connection with the soil,

HIS FACE, WAS FAMILIAR.
Treasury Agent Was Sure He Hud

"A couple of weeks ago," said a
treasury special agent, "1 had as a seat

er boat a man whose countenance was
baffingly familiar to me, and yet I could
not place him by any effort of memory
cudgelling. He was a man of fifty, or
so, with a very bald head, and a very
thick, grayish mustache. We fell into
conversation, ns travelers will, during
the progress of the dinner, but nothing
that he let fall in his talk gave me

"We strolled to the smoking-room to

to place him. I believe that my replies

trying to figure out who he was. I ran
sacked the cavities of my memory in
the attempt to fetch before my mental
vision the faces of statesmen and poli

them fitted. After about half an hour
of this sort of thing in the smoking
room, I coulJH bear the uncertainty as
to my companion's identity no longer.
" 'Sir,' I said to him. T ask your in

tenance is so perfectly and entirely fa

I cannot. Pardon me, If I ask to be en
lightened.' " 'Don't mention It, was the amiable
reply of my companion. 'Not to be fa
miliar with my features would be to
argue that you had been living In a
cave ror a good many years."
"Then he stopped, smiled, leaned
over In his chair, and took a look at
my shoes, much to my mystification.

examination of my foot-covering, 'that

Thirty Tears to Build a Clock.
There is at the present time on ex
hibition In New York a wonderful as
tronomical clock, the result of thirty
years' work of the inventor, the late
Christian Gebhard of Baden, Germany.
The clock consists of 15,000 parts, and
displays twenty-six separfte and me
chanical movements, all of which are
propelled by one weight.
In the center of the clock are ten
dials, showing the time in ten great
cities of the world Washington, Lon
don, Paris, Berlin, etc. The clock has
four different time systems mean time
solar or sun time, side-real or star time,
and dismal time. Mean time Is the uni
versally accepted system of the world.
Twelve o'clock today falls on the same
second day as it did yesterday, but
solar or sun time Is irregular, losing
and gaining during the year as much as
35 minutes, and for that reason no
timepieces are regulated by It. Star
time advances dally on mean time three
minutes fifty-six and a half seconds
daily, and as each day is that much
longer than mean time, the year calcu
lated by that system has always 3GG
days complete. The decimal time Is a
new Idea used at present In several
cities of France. By this there are 100
seconds to the minute, 100 minutes to
the hour, and 20 hours to the day. A.
m. and p. m. are thus entirely dropped,
as the dial reads from one to 20.
