High I'toertlon an it Pauperism.
It is funny to hear the advocates of
robber protection howl about the virtues
of high protection in America, lie re i:
makes everybody rich by showing statis
tics of wealth for the wb,ole country.
And here it is ail due io hieb protection.
Everybody has money. Look at tbe
census! We are all ricbi look at tue
census. Ourt;ret cities are all rich.
High protection has done it it all. Let
us bow down aod worsa'p. High pro
tection means prosperity and is making
us all rich. This is so nice, it is so good
to have riiscoviiei a panacea for pov
The protection doctors have done for
poverty what Jenner did for the email
pox, they have invented an infallible
specific. Anyone who thinks that
there are paupers in a protected country,
labors under & mental hallucination. Tbe
so-called paupers are millionaires in dis
guise. Strikes and bread riots ' are sim
ply little farces, with which these mask
ed capitalists amuse themselves and en
tertain their neighbors. Hunger aud
want and nakedness are simply essumej
conditions with which these children of
wealth while away the monotony of life.
Of course they are rich. Are they not
protected? This panacea of high protec
tion has been adopted by foreign countries
with tbe same glorious result. France.
Germany, Belgium, Itaiy and China are
all vaccinated with the protection mi
crobe, and their rich tourist swarm to tbe
United States in disguise to play the mel
odrama of poverty. Besides their pro
tected wealth, tbey are great artists.
"Dcuctdly clever, don't you know," in tbe
dramatic art. They simply want to see
the country, for high protected laborers
are too busy lookmg after their vast pos
sessions to make trips to Europe, to rol;
about in Tally-bo coaches, to flirt and
dance at seaside resorts. So tbev attend
to these matters by proxy end send their

the rows as he goes along, and thus
having them ready for a successive, crop,
fcas no other way but to thin early and
thoroughly. The home gardener may do
this work gradually wish best results, as,
for instance, in"case of tble peets. In
stead" of tninning all at once to the"usual
djstance of four to ix inches apart, the
plants may at first be left two or three
inches apart, and wea tfce roots hav
grown io 6onia size and begin ,o Tjrowd

sands of nice plants, which as yet appear
to have an abundance of room. But this
has to be done. Whatever distance is
decided upon as the best for the partic
ular crop, and in any particular case,
should be strictly acihered to and no
foolish sentimentality stand in the way of
making the distances large enough. It is
much safer to err in favor of giving too
much space than in favor of too little.
Next to the assenites, and often fulJy
equal to them as insect destroyers, is
kerosene emulsion, It kill3 by contact
sucking insects as well as those which
bite and eat the leaves, twigs, etc. In
bulletin Xo. 73 Professor A. J. Cook, of
the Michigan station, gives the follow
ing formula for its preparation, which is
one be has recommended and used for
years: Dissolve in two quarts of water
one quart cf soft soap or one-fourth
pound cf hard 6oap by heating to the
boiling point, then add one pint of kero
sene oil and stir it violently. This is
best done by pumping the liquid into
itself through a sniiJl nozzle, so that it
shall be thoroughly agitated. This, ha
claims, mixes the oil permanently bo
that it will never separate, and it can be
diluted easily at pleasure by simply
shaking or slightly stirring after addiitg
the water to dilute it. When ready to
use stir in enough water to make fifteen
pints in all that is, one-fifteenth of the
liquid applied would be kerosene oil.
The Hnbbard-Kiley formula is as fol
lows: One half pound of soap dissolved
in one gallon of boiling water, when two
gallons of kerosene are added and im
mediately 6tirred as before. Then dilute
with nine parts of water to one of the
euiulniou. It will thus be seen that Pro
fessor Cook U3ea four times as much
water as kerosene, while Dr. Riley recom
mends twice as much kerosene as water.
The former aloo uses more soap.
Professor Cook hopes that all station
entomologists and horticulturists will
thoroughly try both these formulae, that
farmers and fruit growers may be wisely
advised as to their respective meriti
The land for the sweet potato crop
should be got ready at the first oppor
tunity. Let it be well cultivated and
broken fine, It should be light and
fibrous, yet net over rich, as this has a
tendency to make the potatoes run large
ly to vines. The manure should be
finely broken, well rotted and be worked
well into the land. After the land is pre
pared, throw it into beds or ridges about
three feet from centre to centre, and set
out the slips, which should be previously
hardened by full exposure in the hot
bed to the air day and night, about two
feet apart on the ridges. The plants
always grow best when set out in newly
prepared rows, and seldom make much
progress until the ground is thoroughly
wanned. The planting of them may,
therefore, be well deferred until the end
of the month or the beginning of June,

He settled himself comfortably in one
of the chain in the Russell House, ro- j
tunda and placed the tips of his fingers :
together as he spoke. j
"1 ajTee with verybody who says

tinned. 'I know all about that. I'
know all about the power of a good cigar
to cheer the heart of a lonely man too.
Often I have thought when sitting with
my evening cigar that the weed acted as
a disinf.sctant, carrying away in its curl
ing blue smoke all the blue thoughts and
blue feelings within me. And the burn
ing of cigars in a congenial company of
men p-omotes good fellowship. Of
course iz does. It adds to tne enjoyment
of social life.

of his right hand toward hi3 upper vest

"And now, leaving the individual
alone, how about ths general publnv?
My wife requests me to smoke in her
presence because she loves the odwr; calls
it fragrant. To most women I think it
i3 offensive, nothing more nor less, and
it is the same to many men. And yet
people smoke in promiscuous crowds,
they smoke on the decks of steamboats,
they smdke on the platforms of street
cars, they puff away in the ends of parlor
coaches on railroad trains until the air is
dense wi! h the vile smoke of cigars and
pipes, which oozes through the separat
ing door and floats through the whole
car, anroying, if not sickening, the
other heirless passengers, who may lump
it if they don't like it. It makes me hot
to think -,hat in every street car, in every
ladies' waiting room, in every estaurant

"A maa who can understand the effect
of cigar, f moke on some women would as
soon think of doing that as to smoke in
