It was a hard lump of red sand simply
that and nothing more. The wanderers

hurrying away by hundreds in disgust
and that there is much suffering among
those who cannot get away.

Agricultural Reporter Campbell has sent
a statistical report to W. C. Garrard, secre
tary or me department of agriculture at

Mr. Campbell states that there are less

The Monmouth Democrat offers this
suggestion to the farmers of defeating
the twine trust combination:
There are blentv nf nlrl miHrtl..,i

and young men in this country who can
wu tne iarmera now tbey may defeat the
infamous twine trust. These men have
been in the harvest field when there w&a
no self-binder within a hundred miles of
them. Tbey have passed many furnace
heated days in fitting bands of straw
around the comfortable bellies of hard-
maae wneat sneaves. They are not too
old do it again.
What has become of all the farmers
and their sons and their hired hands?
wnat has become of the iron muscled
giants who swung the grain-cradles of a
generation ago? Has farming advanced
so far that now it is helpless in the
clutches of a petty trust? If the sturdy
wueai-raners oDject to oeing robbed by
a paca ai iwine twistera they ought to
adopt the half-forgotten methods of
tneir fathers. Bring out the cradles and
me jugs ormeiheglm! Call out the boys
before daylight and set them to binding

No, says the farmer, that day has gone
uj. me ooys nave Deen to college and
uieir nanas are tender. They object to
breaking their backs over a straight laid'
swath when tbey can do twenty times as
much work at the cost of one-twentieth
the exertion with the aid of a clattering
macmne. i ney declare that the world
has advanced too far to be fed on bread
made from sheaves toilsomely bound by

At the Theatre.
The May Bretonne Dramatic company
opened a week's engagement at Harper's
theatre last night before an immense au.
dience. The domestic comedy-drama
Caprice," was presented with Miss Bre
tonne in the part of "Mercy." acting her
part in a most charming manner, with
good support from the rest of the com.
pany. This afternoon there was a matinee
and this .'evening. "My Angel" is to be

The farmers of the country are now
much worried over the twine trust. They
are holding meetings and pouring in
petitions to the legislature of the several
states to take some action or to give
them some law to defeat the combina

The farmers are waking up a little at
last to protect themselves against the
greed of the monopoliata. Their votes
last fall were largely deposited in favor
of a system of protection which reaches
its full fruition in the development of
l be tendency of protection is to cen
tralize capital, to destroy competition
and give a few a monopoly in certain
lines of business, and tuese favored fe
are thus able to combine, control the
output and to an already protected art!
cle of necessity add an additional and
excessive price over the cost of produc
tion by aid of a trust.
During the last presidential campaign
the democratic party gave warning of
the evils to follow the adoption , of
policy of protection which must eventu
ally encourage and create the formation
of these gigantic monopolies. But the
assurance of Blaine that trusts were but
paltry affairs and of a mere private
character, with which the president nor
congress had anything to do, quieted the
rears oi the republican farmers who, it
seems, were too ready to put party above
No protectionist, if candid, would con
tend tnat the farmer ia benefitted by
protection una. me farmer is com
pelled to sell in the markets of the world
and to purchase et home in a market
where the cost of everything he needs is
enhanced by protective tariff. The wage
workers or tbe country in the last elec
tion voted more intelligently for' their
interests than did tbe farmers. In all the
large manafacturing states and the great
commercial emporiums of the country the
laoorers working in tbe protected manu
factories, which are mainly benefitted by
the tariff, voted against tbe tariff. But
in the agricultural states and in the large
rural district where the farmers were
paying a tariff tax aggregating 45 per
cent on clotbtng, twine, salt, lumber, etc
the republican vote which represented
tbe policy of continued protection was
Tbe enormous prices that must now be
paid by the farmers for the benefit of the
twine trust may tend to lead them in the
direction of self protection and to oppose
