How the New Administration Win
Regard the Cuban Question.
Every Citizen of the United States Will
Have .Absolute Protection Even If
War with Spain be Precipi
tated in Consequence.
New York, Feb. 27. The Journal
prints the following1 dispatch from
Julius Chambers, its staff correspond
ent at Cleveland, O.:
Intense curiosity exists to know the
policy to be pursued regarding Cuba by
the incoming administration. I am
able to state that policy on the highest
authority and in the epigram in which
It will be enunciated.
FARM AND GARDEN.
77,4 American Flig Will Protect.
There will not be any meddling with the
Cuban insurrection, or any trilling with
Every citizen of the United States will
have the absolute protection of this rov
ernment if war with Spain be precipitated.
The first rasp of brutality to a citizen of
the United States will lc followed by im
mediate and unmiHtakablo action on the
part of the administration.
Maj. McKinley is opposed to a rec
ognition of the republic of Cuba, be
cause he maintains that it docs not
exist, and that the only existing gov
ernment in Cuba is Spain. The grant
ing of belligerent rights to insurgents,
he argues, would relieve Spain to a
large extent of her obligations to this
government. Xo claims of American
citizens would lie against Spain for the
destruction of their property on the
island by the insurgents.
Maj. McKinley is equally opposed tc
armed intervention, holding that con
ditions justifying such a step do not
exist. The president-elect has recently
expressed himself in writing to the
above effect. The firmness of his atti
tude on the protection due Americans
living or traveling in Cuba is unmis
takable. The consul-general at Havana
will not appeal to him in vain. President-elect
McKinley will order every
ship in the navy to Cuban waters, U
necessary, to protect the life of a man,
woman or child, who has a lawful claim
on this government.
A politician close to Maj. McKinley
said Thursday afternoon that the president-elect
is delighted with the stand
taken by Consul-General Lee; that he
pronounced it unassailable and just the
attitude that he approved. I can not
vouch for this, as I can for the state
ment regarding the Cuban policy of the
next president. That I know to be
"Conservatism, on every phase of the
Cuban question, except the rights of
American citizens. They must and
ehall be protected," are Maj. McKinley"
JUDGE JOSEPH M'KENNA.
fhe Callfornian Will Probably be Made
New Yokk. Feb. 27. A Times spe
cial from Washington says:
A Pennsylvania republican said
Thursday that lie had received infor
mation direct from Canton that there
was no doubt there that Judge Mc
Kenna, reported to he selected by Mc
Kinley for secretary of the interior,
would be put in the attorney-general's
place, and that if Col. McCook should
get into the cabinet it would be as sec
retary of the interior.
A PROFOUND MYSTERY.
No One Can Tell Why So Many Fara
era Oppoae Good Roads.
Each season, an old hymn reminds us,
lias its own disease. That is beyond all
question true of those rural neighbor
hoods in which the movement for good
roads has not become potent aijd ef
fective. The old happy-go-lucky high
ways are always bad, but with a dif
ferent kind of badness for each sea
son. At what time thev are worst is
a question to be decided by individual
taste. Last spring, when the frost was
coming out of the ground and sticky
mud was more than half bub-deep,
some thought they were at their worst
estate. Others reckoned them worse
ir. midsummer, when they were beds
of impalpable red or yellow dust from
one to several inches deep, interspersed
with big pebbles and cobblestones.
Again there are tliose who reckon the
fall or the winter the worst time of all,
and, indeed, not without much cause.
Many weeks ago the trouble began.
Autumnal rains goaked the soil an-J
made the roads imty, with a deep, still!
mud that was hard to drag wheels
through, and that became and remained
cut and crosscut into all manner of
luts. Then a coll "snap" came, and
the mud was frozen almost as hard
as stone, and the roads presented sur
laces which for roughness weje un
paralleled and indescribable. Driving
over them, even at walking pace, was
a torture compared with which travel
on a corduroy ro;:ti is pleasure and on
a cobble-paved street a sybaritic lux
ury. After days of such agony for
horses and drivers, and inestimable
wear and tear on chicles, the most
traveled roads began to be worn down
fairly smooth. Then came a thaw, and
mud again, and ruts, and the roads
were soon as rough as before, and so re
mained until the next freeze hardened
them into the likeness of volcanic
scoriae. And when at last the snou
came the roads beneath it were sc
rough that sleighing was well-nigh im-
j ossibie. The runners cut through to
the ruts and "hubs" and hummocks,
;:iid the sleigh joiteu worse than ever
did springlcss car on "rocky road u
I!ublin." So it will go on all winter,
until the vernal thaw comes, and the
frost breaks up, and the very bottom
seems to fall out of the wretched
doughs which men in grim irony call
Keally, one would think that with
such varied yet incessant object les
sons before them, men would learn to
serve their own best interests by con
structing deceut roads. Yet too gen
erally they do not. One says it would
cost too much, ignoring the patent fact
that it would really reduce taxes and
save money. Another wants "the
state" to do it, unmindful that he and
his neighbors and his village are in
tegral parts of "the state." A third
wants to postpone the undertaking un
til the village is incorporated, though
as a matter of fact this very neglect of
the roads is one of the strongest reasons
why the place is unfit for and unworthy
of incorporation. Still another is un
willing to speud money for the benefit
of bicycle riders and the city folks who
come out for just a little while in sum
mer with their fancy turnouts, the fact
being, of course, that the farmers and
permanent residents of the villages
themselves use the roads, and suffer
from their badness, and would be bene
fited by their improvement, ten times
more than all others put together. The
bicyclists can make their runs in other
directions where the roads are good.
The "city folks," with light pleasure
carriages and little-worked horses, can
endure poor roads with comparative in
difference. Put the people who live
right there, aud have to use the roads,
not mer.dy for pleasure but for work
and business, every day the year round,
they are those who suffer most from
bad roads, and who would gel most
good from good roads. That any one of
them should for a moment fail to per
ceive that fact and to act upon it is one
of the iucoinprehen.-ibie mysteries of
the age. X. Y. Tribune.
ECONOMIC FEED RACK.
Simple Device Which Pre vent a the
Waste of Lota of Hay.
When hay is fed loose in the baia
rrd a certain per cent, of it is tram
pled under foot and wasted. In order
U prevent this, in part at least, a feed
rack of some kind should be erected in
the center of the yard at a point which
will be the most sunny and pleasant
Now, a simple but effectual way in
which to build one of these feed racks
is to begin by setting four tall posts in
the ground in the form of a rectangle,
as shown in cut. Their height and dis
tance apart will determine the size and
capacity of the rack. It is inadvisable,
nowever, to make it tery wide, say not
over six feet, as some difficulty would
be experienced by the animals in pull
ing out the hay if bound solidly in the
center. Set the posts leaning toward
the center, in order to make the open
ing wider at the bottom than at the
top. This will prevent binding, and
in consequence the hay will readily
settle as it is being eaten away from
below. From about 13 inches above
ground to the top of the posts the sides
CHEAP FEED RACK.
tind ends should be boarded tightly,
making it possible for the animals to
get at the hay only at the bottom.
To make the rack complete a man
ger must be constructed entirely round
t lie upright part. This is best accom
plished by setting four short posts se
curely in the ground opposite the cor
ners, and others between to give firm
ness to this part, where pressure is
brought to bear. If the manger is
made slanting and narrow at the bot
tom, it will prevent animals from get
ting in, as they are often tempted to do
in cold weather. Many consider it a
good plan to cover such a rack with a
shed roof, thus always keeping the hay
dry. This can be done with very little
expenses; and, betteryet, I would advise
having a door at the front of it, hung
on hinges, as represented in the illus
tration, so that it could be let down
ct will for the insertion of the hay
This should tend to keep the fodder
dry for the most part in any kind of
weather. Frederick 0. Sibley, in N,
FACTS ABOUT MILK.

A really good dairy cow can be
profitably kept until she is eight years
Don't allow vour cows, young cattle
or sheep to be pinched in their feed dur
ing the winter.
Do not expect a good milk cow to
become beef fat while she is yielding a
good now of milk.
As a rule, a profitable cow is a good
eater, but some cows have eyes larger
than their stomachs, like some men.
If the heifer is to develop into a
profitable cow, her first milking period
must be extended as much as possible.
The solid part of milk is made large
ly from muscle-making foods. The
dairyman must use a good deal of corn
in his feeding ration, but it should be
balanced up with oats or something
of that kind.
Lack of skill in milking, unkind treat
ment, improper or irregular feediug,
and a cold stable will soon spoil the
best dairy herd in existence. See that
none of these "methodS" are practiced
in your dairy.
While it is best to keep water where
the cows can help themselves, when this
cannot be dune conveniently, the best
plan is to see that they have all the
pure, fresh water they will drink regu
larly twice a day.
The cow likes regularity, and when
the regular routine of her life is dis
turbed she resents it by giving less milk.
She is not very particular whether she
has three meals a day or two, but she
wants what she does have regularly.
Those who have had much experi
ence know that there is a great differ
ence in salts. A sample should alwaya
be thoroughly tried before buying large
quantities, no matter what inducement
may be offered. If it does not suit it
is not wanted at any price. Colman's
Points with Which Every Dairyman
Should Be Familiar.
Milk should be kept in a cool place,
free from odors and in perfectly clean
vessels of well-glazed earthen or porce
lain ware or a glass jar. Tin and wood
Milk should be kept perfectly sweet
for household use in summer from 24
to 36 hours after delivery, if maintained
at 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Pasteurization or sterilization ol
milk destroys all the germs present, by
means of heat.
It is estimated that one-third of all
children die before they are three years
old, and one of the leading causes of in
fant mortality is unwholesome milk.
Pad milk cannot be made perfect by
Pasteurization, but the danger from its
consumption can be lessened.
The Pasteurization process is to place
the milk in a glass bottle plugged tight
with dry, clean cotton, and immerse
the bottle up to the neck in water main
tained at ISO degrees Fahrenheit, left
there for some time, then removed and
kept in a cool place.
Separator cream is much richer than
"gravity cream," and for this reason
preferred for whipping.
Cream is sometimes kept for two
weeks before it is sold.
When good milk is poured from a
tumbler it will cling to the glass a lit
tle, and not run off clean like water.
The yellow color of the milk is not a
safe standard by which to judge its
quality, for the poor milk from some
cews may be more highly colored than
rich milk from others. All milk from
fresh cows immediately after parturi
tion is more yellow than at a later date.
The average dairy cow gives 350 gal
lons of milk per year, or about
enough to supply 14 persons with milk.

WHAT FARMERS NEED.
od Roads Will Check Enila;ratloa
from the Country.
What is most needed to make farm
life more attractive and to check the
emigration from the country to the
cities is larger opportunities for social
intercourse. At present there is
little opportunity for the rural classes
to mingle at all. They are compelled by
force of circumstances to remain at
home, and, tiring of this constant rou
tine, it is natural for the rising gener
ation to seek the cities, where there
is variety and change. The much
mooted question of better roads con
tains a remedy, to a large extent, for
this evil. Petter roads will brighten the
life and improve the condition of the
farmer much more than better learn
ing, though we do not desire to discount
the advantages of education to people
in all the walks of life. At present, in
the winter, when the farmer has the
most leisure, the roads are almost im
passable, except in sleighing weather,
and this bars his children from all so
cial intercourse, as, indeed, it would
bar them from attendance upon any ad
vanced schools that might be estab
lished in their interests. Give the
farmer better roads, and there is every
reason to believe his children will re
main with him longer, and that his gen
eral condition will be much better than
it ia at present.
