Malt for I'recnant Animals.
('regnant animals may safely be al
lowed free access to rock salt, provided
there has been no deprivation for a long
period praviOMrjr, It is very rare that
animals take too much of anything food
or water -unless there has been a long
period duriug w hich material of which
they are fond or th.U is necessary to
them has been withheld. Salt is an es
sential constituent of the blood, and salt
hunger may lead to excess w ben the ani
mal is suddenly permitted an opportu
nity of supplying its lack; but given
free access no more will be taken than
is necessary to satisfy its wants.
Main of the common fodders on whicb
domestic animals are fed contain only a
small proportion of salt. On some farms
it is lacking in the soil, and the food
stuffs grown on them must of necessity
be deficient, therefore the importance of
a constant supply should not be over
looked. Rock salt to In k is better than
a tlxed quantity , mixed with the food,
unless it is given medicinally, as in cases
of "rot" in sheep, or worms in any ani
mal, aWCause it is possible that more may
be supplied than is necessary when the
animal is forced to take it or refuse the
food. Salt is a constituent of milk, and,
if not given to the cow, it must be drawn
from that stored in her blood and tissues
There can, therefore, be no serious de
privation without injury, and if the food
dse not contain it in sufficient quantity
it should be artificially supplied. The
amount may tie safely left to the cow.

The Dextrine Dnty.
Editor of New York Evening Post
In these days of protectionists' outcries
it Is interesting to note the appearance
before the senate committee recently of
a gentleman from Boston asking that a
duty of three cents per pound (equiva
lent to 130 per cent, of its cost) shall be
put on imported potato dextrine, when
there is not a single pound of this dex
trine manufactured in this country.
Whom does he desire to protect? Per-
btvps. a future investment of this pet pro
tectionist as opposed to the interests of
the thousands of textile, paper and other
manufacturers who are using this raw
material in finishing their product.
Though the domestic manufacturers
arc making dextrine here from a basis
of corn starch at less than half the com
of potato, yet the imported article is pre
ferred, and they are unable to compete.
The gentleman from Boston omits to
state that dextrine is largely used as a
substitute for glue, which is at present
protected by a 20 per cent, duty, whereas
dextrine already pays 40 per cent. His
statement that dextrine is only a substi
tute for starch is therefore incorrect.
Foreign potato starch is tared 2 cent-.
p-r pound, which amounts to almost 100
per cent. Nine-tenths of the domestic
product is made by small factories in the
Now England anil New York states, and
is almost all controlled by one Boston
house, which makes cash advances, with
good profit to itself, as against the inter
est of the many manufacturers who con
sume this article. A protection of M
per cent, should be ample to enable this
infant industry to compete with the let
ter grade foreign articles and give the
manufacturers raw material at a price
which will afford them a chance to com
pete with imported textiles and fabrics.
We think it about time that the Amer
ican people should cease protecting one
or two favored individuals and monop
olies as against the many manufacturers-
who would be enabled by cheaper raw
material to compete in the world's mar
ket, and increase our home industries
and wealth. Jcstice.
Beans Without Boston.
Mr. S. C. Bo wen, of Medina, N. Y..
appeared at the tariff hearings of the
ways and means committee. His theme
was beans. He read a long paper to the
committee on the history of bean grow
ing and bean eating in the United States
He warned the committee that a tariff
of 10 per cent, ad valorem would be in
sufficient to protect the bean growers of
this country. Mr. Bowen thought that
a specific duty of fiftv cents a bushel
would about suit him. The desire of Mr
Bowen's heart appeared to be that as
long as the country lasted beans should
never be sold below-12 a bushel.
lo Mr. Breckinridge s question as to
who ate most beans, Mr. Bowen was
obliged to reply that the poorer classe
did. Mr. Bowen was further obliged to
admit that dear beans meant, therefor. .
hi, Teased expense to the poorer classes.
The whole subject appears to haw
been discussed and settled without the
intervention of Boston. As dear beans
in the Hub would mean a famine in that
quarter of Massachusetts, it is to be pre
sumed that the last has not vet been
heard of the attempt to increase t he
duty on Boston's one dish to M per cent.
It Aets Both Ways.
Although the iron used for making
steel plates has been cheaper in this
coun'ry for a month or so past than in
Great Britain, a tariff of $28 per tou
enables Mr. ' araegie to extort from Du
luth Bhip builders $60 per ton for 5,000
tons of steel plates, which could have
. ' .,.' . . .. .
been bought in Glasgow for half the
money. The lake vessels to the cost of
which the tariff has sdded this $150,000
will be used in carrying northwestern
wheat lo foreign free trade markets, and
this extra cost will of course be added
to the freight charges and ultimate
come out of the pocked ot wheat grow
ers. If they cannot see bow the tariff
reduces the price of every bushel they
send to market by rail or water, the
cannot, of course. s-e boss it robs them
of a large part of what they g.-t for it by
laying taxes on their clothing, sugar and
all they buy. St. Louis Post - Dispatch.
Millers Want Tree .lute.
Though the farmer won't see it, Ins
next friend, the miller, ii beginning to
tumble. The National Millers' associa
tion have petitioned the committee on
ways and means that jute and jute cloth
or burlap lie put on the free list. The
association alleges that, owing to the
present tariff on these raw materials t -
flour bags, 'the cost of the bags used in
exporting flour was increased from 2:2 to
30 per cent., and was a heavy burden on
all exporters of flour." Of course the
farmers have no interest in this. Thev
do not export flour like the millers. But
what about grain bags, on w Inch a simi
lar tax is levied?
A protectionist journal insists that it
is not the custom house tariff but the
railroad tariff that compels the farmers
in Kansas and Nebraska to burn corn
instead of coal for fuel. This is a super
ficial view. 'Die custom house tariff not
not only prevents the farmer from profit
ably exchanging his corn for other taxed
necessaries he needs, but the cost of the
railroads has been nearly doubled at the
same time and the cost of carriage has
been thereby greath Increased. The
cost of carrying corn on taxed rails is
graduated according to the tax. Phila

is often so offensive that he becomes an

The Indians often camped upon his place
making it their camping ground when
on their regular rounds over the

having drank too much fin- water, roused

Mr Meek speaks highly f the military
abilities of Black Hawk an I thinks that
he was undoubtedly a grea' warrior. Mr.
Meek served in the war u-ainst Black
Hawk, hut thinks that the white settlers
of Illinois misrepresented HUck Hawk's
motives when he returned o Kock river
and this part of the country Mr Meek
states that Black Hawk's return to Rock
river country was to hum and not to
