Colts are often fed nothing but hay
through the winter, and sometimes that
ot poor quality. This U poor policy, and
the result is the colt's growth is nearly
stopped, and what little take place is
uneven. A correspondent in The New
York Tribune states the matter correctly
when he savs that the medium sized rolt
should le fed for the First two or three
months after weaning time one quart of
oats mixed with the same quantity of
wheal bran and a gill of oil men I morn
ing and night. The bran, aside from be
ing nutritious, tendR to keep the colt free
from worms, while the oats are excellent
to make superior muscleand form a good
quality of bones. The oilmeal aids diges
tion and keeps the Ixiwela in order.
As the winter advances this ration

At the Michigan state beekeepers nasi

fied to the lacl that comb built on flat
bottom foundat' n has less of a fishbone
than on foundation made of the natural
shape. The reason seems to be that the
bees, In changing the flat bottom to the
natural shape cell, thin the base more to
the thickness of natural comb than with
the other. 1 believe it was generally ad
mitted that bees are often slower to com
mence working on it, but this is not
always so, and need not prove to be very
much of a hindrance.

Hon. Benjamin Butterworth, of Oliio,
w ho defined himself as "a Republican
with ultra tendencies." has given ex
pression to one of the favorite truths of
the low tariff men. The high protec
tionists occasionally let slip such truths,
to the great delight of all advocates of
Tariff reformers have been caring for
a king time that if protection be in it
self a good thing our different states
ought to adopt it and protect their home
enterprises against the competition of
the more favored states in the Union.
The inequality in the price of labor in
the different parts of the country affords
here ample play for the cheap labor ar
guments of the protectionist.
As an example of this, tariff reformers
have MeVtoi out the fact that the wages
paid in 1888 by Mr. Andrew Carnegie, in
his blast furnace A, at Braddock, Pa.,
ran from tifty cents to 91 lower than was
paid for similar work in furnace No. -of
the t'niou -Steel company at Chicago.
A still more startling difference was
shown in the wages of the heater's helper,
Mr. Carnegie paying $132 per 100 tons,
while the Chicago concert! paid $3.
Does not Illinois need a protective
tariff uaaiusl "the cheap pauper luUir"

Rut what d s-s Mr. Butterworth say-;
"If the arl-itrary control of competi
tion by sWagMM ithout regard to OSaV
dition Is- desirable that is, if a protec
tive tariff ni a means of limiting com
petition be good in the abstract con
gress should at once, if it has the power,
divide the United States into six divis
ions, so that each one may get rich by
fencing out all competition."

American GoodsSeeklos a Foreign Market.
Mr. W. J. Coombs, of the firm of
Coombs. Crosby & Eddy, large export
ing merchants of New York, recently
made public a fact which shows how
American manufacturers are reaching
out after the markets of the world. He
states that repeatedly during th;- past year
his firm had chartered vessels to come in
ballast i. e., without anv cargo from
foreign ports to New York in order to
take away merchandise for which the
firm had orders. At the time when this
statement was made there were six ves
sels serving the firm on such charter.
But why was it necessary for thee
vessels to come to America empty'.- Did
not this involve great loss of time and
money? Did it not render the freight
charges on the outgoing cargo of Ameri
can w ares much greater'-
Mr. Coombs answers these questions
by showing that, in order to render this
foreign trade profitable, tho incoming
DBtfjO must also be found. He says that
his experience proves that t lie problem
of providing the outgoing cargo is al
ready solved. The timu has conio, he
says, when the enterprise of our manu
facturers, combined with the intelligent
skill and inventive genius of our me
chanics, enables us to compete in the
markets of the world with the European
factories as regards nearly every class
of our industrial productions.
The articles on which we cannot com
pete successfully are those in which the
cost of the raw materials is the chief
item With cheap raw materials these
articles would also be profitably exported.
We an- told repeatedly that it is the
high price of American labor which pre
vents us from sending our wares into
foreign markets, but here is nn experi
enceu exporter who says that he com
petes most successfully in those classes
of goods in n hirh the lalior cost is great
est. One of these vessels which had to lose
time in sailing empty across the seas to
New York took on a cargo there for
Natal in South Africa. Tins part of the
great "Dark Continent." of which such
marvelous things are now being told,
produces immense quantities of the very
finest grades of wool. Our manufactur
ers need these wools and have recently
petitioned congress for them.
But the ship in question was imt able
to take on a return cargo of wool, for the
custom house oflicersin New York would
have exacted ten cents for every jKiund
of it. and this is ni ne Uian half of it
cost in Africa
Wiiat then did the captain of Mr.
Coombs' vessel do?
He aailed empty acroa in- Atlantic
again tn Brazil, where he took on a c.u
go for New York. This he could verv
well do. a the great products of BraJf.il
are coffee and crude rubber, which aie
a I low is I to enter New York free.
Mr. Coombs, it should be stated, does
not seek a remedy for these evils by ask
ing congress to grant u subsidy to vessels
carrying his tuerchaudiau. On the con
trary, he thinks that this would be only
a temporary expedient, a correction of
one error by the commission of another.
His remedy is u removal of the almost
prohibitory duty mi South American and

Tariff Talk at yarmern Institnt.a
I have not thus far not ici d the criti
cisms of the Amirs or its cor esp ndents
on my letter of Feb. 15th on the above
topic, believing that my position needed
no defense; but as the sub' ect will not
down, a few more words seem called for.
I have not objected, no' does any
friend of American industries object, to
a fair and full discussion of th tariff on
its merits as an economic que tion. The
objection lies against the pmial, one
sided discussion which assumes before
hand that one side is slwsys and forever
right, and the other nide alwtvs and for
ever wrong, and Mien takes lor granted
that tariff is the cause of all tne evils af
tl cling our country, and thi.t one po
litical party is responsible tbeiefor. Buch
a dircussion can produce n Rood re
sults either in the discovery f truth or
the forma'ion of a correct public senti
ment. When we remember that the res
publican party is pledged to revise the
tariff in the interests of Amir can Indus
tries, of which farming is chit f and thai

the discussion for fear of los

as to jHstify a suspicion of it i author's

proves plainly thsi I ha rci-ubitcan part
has never evaded it
After all. the Attars snd myself are.
for once, in harmony. My objection
i hat this discussion at a farm -rs' instis
tute supported at the public expense
would lie a misappropriation ol the peo
pie's monev, lln- Allots p-onounres
valid. If the discission of this economic
iinestion was conducted solelj tor the
public good, the public funds vould not
thereby he misemployed. In sdmitting
the soundness of my objection. I be Amu -also
confesses that the object o; toe dis
cussion is not so much to pro note the
public welfare as to improve the pros
pects of a political party. This Is exact
ly why the debate is inexpedient and im
1 am not courting any controversy with
the Allot s or i:s conlnbuto s One
point only I wish to notice. We are
told tariff is rong in principle became
it taxes what we consume instea i of what
wf; possess. This is exactly tiue of a
"tariff for revenue only," which was once
a cardinal plank in a famous platform.
Book a tariff, levied on sometbln ; we can
not produce and must have, is charged
up directly to the consumer But a
tariff for protection differs. It is levied
on something we can and ought to pro
duce ourselves, and ceases to be a burden
to the consumer whenever the ptoduciion
increases sufficiently to supply the mar
kt t. Competition then intern nes, and
demand regulates prices . So it happens
that many kinds of goods pavii g a high
rate of duty aro produced and mid here
as cheaply as in England Why then
continue the tariff? Simply to prevent
foreign manufacturers and spcu!atnrs
from throwing large quantities of their
goods upon our already well storked
market, and thus breaking do n prices
fur below the cost of pniouctiin, and
freizing out our manufactures . The
foreigner could well afford to sell these
goods regardless of cost or va ue until
mr shops are closed up. Then, relieved
from competition, he would be master of
the situation, and being able rnsily to
! control the lines of ocean conmerce,
'could dictate prices to us at bis own
plessure. Cheap living is a vert tempt
