I have the following report of an ex
periment of feeding wheat to hogs,
says a Maimisburg correspondent of
the Northwestern Miller. Twenty-one
shouts were fed for a week on wheat.
The weight of the hogs when feeding
liegan was l.'.KKl pounds, and at the
end of the lirst week it was '2.;U't
pounds showing a gain of .". pounds.
The amount of wheat fed was 12 bush
els. These hogs are sold, to be de
livered September l-.at 4.1:0 per K'O
pounds. This shows a gain of $1(5.
Tit, or $1.38 per bushel for wheat.
This wheat is soaked for 24 hours be
fore being fed. About half our crop
is going to be fed to stock, as there
will be very little corn.
The low price at which cotton is sel
ling has so discouraged some of the
planters in Arkansas that they say
they will not raise a stalk of the great
staple another year, but will devote
themselves to stock raising. The farm
ing of the future in the United States
must bo devoted to enlarging the yield
per acre. It costs a certain amount to
plow, to seed, to cultivate and to har
vest the crop on an acre, no matter
whether the yield be small or large.
For instance, it costs the farmer just
' as much to raise an acre of wheat
yielding twelve bushols as it does if
' the yield is twenty-four bushels. With
present low prices, ha would probably
lose in the first case, and make money
in the second. The problem then is to
double or triple the yield per acre.
The right of the federal goveraienl.
through the United States courts, to
enjoin interference with interstate eom-lnei-ee
has once more been affirmed by
the decision at Si. Louis in the case
before the circuit court on demurrer to
the government's petition for an in-1
junction against Debs and the Ameri
can Railway union. This new decision
permits United Statescourts to enjoin,
in advance of any actual outbreak, all
combinations or conspiracies on the
part 01 railway employes which have
for their object the stoppage of trains,
no matter what the grievance." The
court also permits injunctions, ' en
forceable by all the power of the fed
eral government, against interference
with interstate commerce or the run
ning of trains on the part of strikers
or ruffians after a strike has been de
clared for legitimate reasons. Evi
dently we have within a short time ad
vanced rapidly towards a solution of
the legal status of strikes and strikers.
Our late legislation against trusts and
combinations, according to these de
cisions, applies to employes as well as
to corporations which seems to agree
with natural justice.
It is said that Mr. Carlisle is in re
tirement "formulating" something or

Mr. Cleveland may think enough of it

Knock the bottom out of the gold
vaults of the Treasury and then try to
keep it full by sellingbondsand piling
the proceeds in at the top seems to be
Mr. Cleveland's idea of maintaining
the gold reserve.
A bond issue for buying gold when
gold can be drawn out of the Treas
ury on demand is a most ingenious
device to enable the taxpayers of the
country to pay interest on their own
money. Financiering has seldom made
a higher fight than this.
The official returns from all the
counties composing the Fourteenth
Congressional District give Mosley a
plurality of one thousand and eighty

of six thousand.
Under the new Japanese treaty with
the United States. Japan will have the

.lustice Brewer, of the United States
Supreme court, holds the Nebraska

man or corporation shall be compell

The newspapers of the large cities
are making war on the bakers. They
claim that the price charged for bread
is thensame now as when flour cost
twice what it now costs. The New
York Herald says an eighteen ounce
loaf of bread should be sold for three
cents, andeven at that prica the bakers,
it says, would make one hundred ier
cent clear money.
It is announced that Col. W. C. P.
Breckinridge has made a contract to

to trade upon his baseness, to exhibit
his infamy for hire. Re will make

All the advertising contracts placed
by the Cheney Medicine Co., of Tole
do. O.. contain a clause to the effect
that if tho Legislature of the State in
which the newspaper is published or
Congress shall make any law interfer
ing with or restricting the sale of pro
prietary goods, the contract shall be
void. When such a bill is introduced
in the Lesrislature of any State. Mr.
Cheney says that all be has to do to
stop its passage is to call the attention
of the newspapers in such State to this
clause in his contracts, and they do
the rest. In speaking of this at the
recent meeting of the Proprietors' As
sociation, Mr. Cheney explained that
this was much cheaper than keeping a
lobbyist at the various capitals, and
subscribing $300. as he had been asked
to do in the State of Illinois, to be
used in the suppression of blackmail
ing measures. It is propable that
other medicine advertisers will follow
the example set by Mr. Cheney.
