GEST NOT WANTED. .

Kdiror of the Awl. ,
Macomb, III.. Oct. 14 We feel it our
duty as the time for election approachei
to say a few plain truths from this point.
Macomb is situate' nearly in the center
of McDonouth county four townships
join in the heart of the city. Macomb
bus at the lust census about 5.000 popu
lation. U is the home, of the Hon. W.
H. Nece. who baa represented tbe peo
ple of the Eleventh congressional district
for two terms. It is tbe home of many
men who have, and are making, bright
record for themselves, their party, and
their countv a mixed tic-Wet beinu elec
ted to Oil the various court y offices no
candidate being sure or fee lmi confident
of office until the vote is offloially count
ed. Two years aeo the tnttre republican
ticket was elected, except James Gash,
who was defeated by Churchill by over
one hundred votes. This showed the
feeling and confidence that the people
bad in the man, who now is postmaster
of tbe city. This city, like a good many
other cities and towns, I. ml its various
candidates for tbe offices two old sol
diers both canal leof managing and do
ing the business of the office were candi
dates. Their friends wire strong, influ
ential and many; their r.cords as soldiers
were (spotless, and their naires as
good as gold. The fitbt was bitter and
extended. James Oath was a political
worker. Tie party did its duty when
tbey nominated him for a county office;
put bim before the people to see if they
wanted tim to serve thrm in their wants.
He was weighed in the balance and
found wanting. Were the political
workers or tfflce seekers satisfied? No;
they went to Congressman Gest and
laid tbe matter before him: told Gt-st
what was what, and (test, contrary to the
wishes of tbe people, made the appoint
ment. Remouairmc-es. petitions of un
limited influence and strength were
brought to bear at'siiist the appointment.
Mr. Gest turned a deaf ear to all that was
to the good of the public, the party and
himself. Now to tue matter in a nut
What has Gest ever done in congress?
Have you seen any record at all that he
has made? Have you seen any measures
he has brought before the house? Have
you any knowledge that he is of any in-fl-ience
or has any bearing in tbe house
of representatives? Do you know that be
is capable of filling tbe position he holds
and occupies-? I ins he by action, deed or
measure shown himself of any learned
ability? Has he, by bis actions in any
part of the Eleventh district, done the
will and wib of the people? Tbe public
in many places ask Mr. Gest to appoint
men to office that would t'.ve satisfaction
to the public. Did he do it? No, em
phatically no. Did he remember the sol
dier boy who was wouDd. d on the battle
field of the south or w ho was maimed or
crippled for life? Did he lemember them
when tbey ai-ked for a favor? No. Look
at Augusta, Polchester, Mucomb, Prairie
City, Carthage, and we miijut name scores
of other towns in the district if we wished.
At this day, date and age people read and
reflect. The clay is done and gone that
any man will vote a straight ticket be
cause it says republican or democrat, or
any other beading. Tbe voters are free
and independent and every tub sits on its
own bottom. Mr. Gest's tub will
have no bottom after November 4. I
am, and always have been, a republican;
have been on the republican ticket for
office, but I will not support such a man
as Gest. There are numbers of our old
est and youngest men who say naught,
but will scratch Gest. lis sweeter to tike
your say at tbe polls than at the packed
convention which nominated Gest at
Buahnell in July. The republican party
did not want lum, preferring a man with
a better record, but he was forced on tbe
convention by tbe postmasters he ap
pointed in more than our place. This is
a known and undeniable fact. He is not
the man that tbe Eleventh district wants.
Ben Cable is our man. He suits us in
every particular. Tbe fact that Ben Ca
ble stands with an unblemished charac er
is what the people want. He is a man of
ability, of character snd honesty. Mc
Donough county will not lie found want
ing in tbe front rank for bim. We are
strong enough to take our say and will do
it in November. That will be an estab
lished fact. We know what we are do
ing when we say we are a body of free J
voters, w e ask no office nor money for
our pay; its principle we are after, and
that Ben Cat le has; W. II. Gest has not.
I defy contradiction tbat I am and always
have been a life long republican and still
say I am a republican, but not for such a
man as Gest has proved himself. We
here are free; our hands are clean; no
office keeps us from shaking our senti
ments; no money can hush our mouths.
We are for purity, honesiv anil to do the
public good. We are for Ben Cable now
and in November. A KKrrr.MCAN.

PLUSHES AND VELVETS.
What May be Loke rr la the Price
r Varioaa Klada er Um4s.
The Union says the merchant "Isn't
selling plushes and velvets for less than
what he will have to pay to replace
them." If so then our merchants are not
as truthful as their representations, and
this no one will believe. According to
this statement the merchant is either ad
vancing the price of his goods now in
stock, to be in accordance with the addi
tional cost under the McKinley bill, or
else be is selling them at tbe old price
nnder the belief that there will be no ad
vance. The merchants themselves dis
tinctly state tbat there will be an advance
under the McKinley bill, but even if they
did not make tbe statement the facts re
main. Under the old law, silk, corded or
combed, bad a tariff rate of f 0.50; under
tbe new law it is the same. Spun silk
under the old law was 30 per cent; under
tbe new 35. Velvets, pile fabrics less
than 75 per cent in weight of silk, was.
under the old law, free; now it is $1.50
and 15 per cent additional. When the
si me material is 75 per cent or more in
weight of silk, tbe tariff is $3 50 and 15
Passavant & Co., New York importers
of these goods, say:
Tbe new tariff law will add from 7 to
30 per cent to tbe cost of goods in our
line of trade. Jersey cloth will be ad
vanced 30 per cent above present prices,
velvet ribbons 10 to 20 per cent, cotton
velvets 10 to 20 per cent, silk and cotton
velvets 10 to 20 per cent, silk and cotton
Plushes 30 per cent, cotton hosiery 15 to
25 per cett, silk hosiery 7 per cent, wool
hosiery 10 per cent, wotl underwear 10
per cent, French underwear 25 per cent,
cottoD bath robes 10 per cent, wool bath
robes 20 per cent, and wool cashmeres 10
to 15 per cent. These figures do not rep
resent nearly the percentage of increased
duty, but tbe actual advance in the price
of ttie articles that will be nece sary to
compensate importers. Where the rates
vary tbe greater rate of advance will ap.
ply to tl e cheaper grades of goods.

the ease with
which they may

gates suitable to

In the accompanying cats are shown
three models of gates that any c arpenter
can make, and which may be appropri
ately nsed with almost any style of
picket, rustic or ornamental bub wire
A convenient size for "these gates is
three feet six or eight inches wide. The
space between the posts for an rdinary
door yard gate may be three feet ten
inches. This is, however, a matter to
b4 decided by circumstances and the use
to which the gate is to be put.
A wide gate is more convenient than
a narrow one, especially when there is

Alfalfa is a perennial plant, in many
respects resembling clover. It hss long
been known in Europe, and its m. st ex
tensive cultivation in this country is in
California and some of the weste-. n and
southern states. It seems especially
adapted to dry climates, and su--coeds
best on a light sandy or loam soT. with
a subsoil through which its Ion top
rootsacan penetrate and find their way to
moisture. It has been gTown su "cess
fully at the Oeneva station in Xew York,
bnt in experiments on farms in different
parts of Vermont has been largely win
ter killed. It will not thrive among
weeds, but must have clean land th first
year. In reply to inquiries that have
been made no Iwtter answer can be p ven
than a brief statement of some of its bad
and good points as discovered at differ
ent state stations throughout the coun
try and summarized by the central iftice
Among its disadvantages it has i)ef n
found less hardy than clover and n t so
easily established. If allowed to j.tow
too long the stalks become hard and
woody. Cattle cannot be safely pas
tured on it except in dry regions. It re
quires peculiar treatment to make frood
hay. Its good qualities are that when
once well established it lasts for years.
It withstands drought well, grows rap
idly and may be cut early and will fur
nish several crops of green fodder t ach
season. If properly cured it makes good
hay and is relished by all farm animals.
In brief, while valuable as a feeding
stuff and as a fertilizing crop, it re
quires peculiar conditions of climate :iml
soil for its growth and careful cult are
and curing to make it a profitable crop.
Raiting- Pallets for Eg-ft.
If you want good laying hens in win "er,
writes a correspondent of The New Y Drk
World, keep an eye on your early hatch
ed chickens, and select the best develojiod
and healthy looking pullets for furnish
ing you with eggs next winter. Tor
several weeks after hatching the yocnp;
chicks should be fed a little five or six
times a day. After they are half grown,
three or fonr times a day not to fatten
them, but to make them grow. I would
give bnt very little grain, and that shoi M
be mostly wheat, oats or rye, some buc k
wheat, and very rarely a little crack id
corn. Two rations ont of every thTee
should be soft food made of wheat bran,
shorts, mashed potatoes and a little con
meal, all well stirred np together. If
mixed np with milk instead of water it
will be greatly improved.
Give the scraps from the table through
the day along with their other ratiou-i.
See to it that they have green food of
some description and plenty of fresh wa
ter. Oreen clover and cabbage leave s
will be excellent; also a little lwne met l
in their mash, and gravel should always
be within their reach. By forcing the
best pnlltts in this way you will hi
quite sure to pet them to laying in th j
fall, which, if properly housed ami fed.
they will continue through the winter,
when, if left to shift for themselves and
make a slow and scanty growth mitii
cold weather, they are not ely to lay
at all until next spring.
Peach Culture Summed I p Briefly.
A Boston horticulturist of note once
said tbat peach culture is briefly snmined
up as follows: Good trees, good varie
ties, good soil, favorable positions, mod
erate fertilization, intelligent pruuing
(if any at all), death to the ixirer, and if
the seasons are propitiom there will be
abundant crop. Plant a tree r an or
chard every year; cut down an.1 burn np
as soon as the tree shows signs of dm-.-iy.
Throw away the knifa ivnd rely on fresh
yonng trees which wear freely th second
or third year, and saving too "irregular
winters" which we always have had and
always shall have, and, we would add,
cold, wet summers when tbe wood does
not ripen, the peach is qnite as sure a
crop as the pear.

foot is an electric button which connects
with the snare drum and electric bells.
On his left stands the big bass, which he
plays along with the cymbals by means of
