Decatcr Review : How do tne farm
era ot Illinois like tbe way in which our
Ute board of equalization bas violated
tbe law in tbe interests of the wealthy
corporations by agreeing to assess them
on a basis of 25 per cent. But they
haven't even done this much, for the
Pullman Palace Car company, with a cap
ital stock aggregating $43,000,000, is only
assessed at 81.500,000. Contrast this
with tbe action of the commissioners in
tbe democratic state of Indiana, where
they made an enormous increase in b'A
kinds of property, especially In railroads,
which were assessed for 590,000,000
more than in 1890. All corporations
were raised about 23 per cent. The
Terre Haute National bank was increased
$200,000, the State National bank of
Michigan City 125,000 and the Citizens'
bank of Portland $125,000. The work
of the board about doubles tbe assessed
value of property in Indiana.
New Zealand has refused to grant the
ladies tbe right to vote. Its parliament
has taken what, to tbe Springfield Regis
ister, as to The Arc, i s, seems the sensi
ble view of it. Women as a rule do not
seek tbe suffrage nor do they care for it
if it was in their possession . For they
have confidence in their husbands, fath
ers and brothers. And besides, if wives
politically agreed with their husbands,
the effect of female suffrage would be to
double tbe vote. If they should not
agree with their husbands the result
would be a tremendous swelling of the
divorce dockets. Also there are occa
sions in tbe lives of most married wc men
when they would much rather stay
at borne than go out and belo
return O'Reilly for ds Fift' ward.
While these objections apply to ruirried
women, they are equally applicable to
single women, for there is no teliing how
soon a single woman wil: get married.
lliim i. iu tl
pepator Culloip has a chronic weakats?
for putting himself forward as a 'V'avoriie
son' of Illinois, and it is becoming more
pronounced than ever. It is ent:rely
witbin tbe rante of imaginable possibili
ties that Illinois may furnish presidential
candidates for both parties, and even if
it does not a well backed "favorite s in"
has a good chance at the vice presidercy
as a consolation prize. In Mr. Cullom's
case the danger is that at the first sign of
real progress for his litt'e boom, the Har
rison office-holders will force it in front
of the Blaine stampede and so manage to
have the life cru:hed out of it Governor
Fifer's more modest ambition to be vice
president does not render him liable to
this danger, though it is a notable fact
that in tbe republican party tne nomina
tion for the vice presidency is t-Mier a
' 'booby" or a "boodle" prize, going either
to a disappointed aspirant for first pi nee
like Logan or to a man who cm "reach
into Wall street" like Morten. While
there is no creat probability that titter
Cullom cr Fif.r will get on tha republi
can ticket, Illinois undoubtedly occupies
a far more important position in national
politics now than it has done since tbe
death cf Lincoln. The eiemocratic move
ment and tbe election of Senator Palmer
has forced it to the front.
Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Wisconsin aoj
New York are the stales nnst likely to
contribute presidential candidates fr
both parties next jear. It does not seem
probable that there will be either a Maine
tnsn or an Ohio man on either ticket.
Tbe fall election in Ouio bas taken aturn
which will render results there less sig
nificant than the result in Iowa. If the
democrats win a decisive victory in Iowa
it will effectually dispose of Harrison and
put William B. Allison a lung way abeid
of any other candidate in the repuUicen
party, B'aine only expected, and AHUon
bas always been Blaine's "right-hand
man" in tbe west. With Eoies twice
elected, and tbe political independence
of Iowa thus emphatically reafflrmecj
tbe republicans could not afford to go to
Indiana for a candidate, especially for
eucb a candidate as Mr. Harrison. Nor
could they risk being flanked In Iowa by
turning to Illinois for a candidate like
Cullom. Tbe election of Boies will dis
pose of Cullom, and force Allison as tbe
man on whom the Blaine contingent wi'l
be most likely to mite when Blaine him
self is found to be out of tbe question.
Democratic victory in Iowa will have
the same effect in establishing tbe claim
of the state -on the democratic party, but
it will not dispose of the claims of Illi
nois. Tbe two states will be together in
tbe front of the western democratic move
ment, and Iowa will have no other ad
vantage than that given by a later demo
cratic victory than tbe great Illinois tri
umph of 1883.

The Latent Dining Table and ltedmora
Seta Favorite Woods and New Shapes.
The latest custom made dining tables
have circalar or oval tops instead of the
square or oblong shapes that have held the
lloor so lonir. Thia departure is a very
sensible revival of an old atid good fashion.
In a square table one ban ahvays the awk
vard corners to dispose of, the lega being
often a serious obstruction to tbe comfort
of the unfortunate seated in proximity
thereto. For real downright comfort noth
ing can equal the old "pedestal" or "pillar
a id claw" table.
. Bedroom sets in birdseye maple seem
tc meet the prevailing demand for some
tiing light and briglitsome. In rooms dec
orated in light and cheerful colors nothing
can be more charming.
Mexican mahogany of handsomely mark
ed grain, finished light, divides the honors
with the maple. The newest patterns will
be in the Adam style, extremely neat nnd
ch iste in design, with carving in very low
relief, and panels bordered with small
classic beading. The taste is becoming
more decided for a little quiet carving
nicely executed, rather than a mass of
coarsely executed so called "antique" dec
orations. For those who do not require to study
the "economics," some sets in white and
crej.m and gold will find appreciation.
These are iu the style of Louis XIV and
XV. modified somewhat to conform with

foregoing, of ft very handsome set, consist

in Louis Qnatorze style, in cream enamel
and gold, with panels of painted tapestry
in tie head aud footboards.

FALL PLGWlriS IN THE GARDEN.
Advantage Claimed for Tlii Practice by
Among the advocates of fall plowing
in the garden is an Iowa correspondent
who writes cn the subject as follows "in
Our Country Home:
Plowing the garden in the fall is ad
vantageous in many respects. Planting
in the spring may be done earlier. The
soil will increase in fertility. Manure
may be nsed more freely, as it will have
time to decay and become incorporated
with the soil. There is more leisure to
do this work in the fall. The garden
should be plowed deep and subsoil I to
the depth of twenty inches or two feet
if that work has never been done before.
The reasons for this mode of preparation
1. The soil will be made deeper by ad
mitting the action of the air tbe great
fertilizer. 2. An excess of moisture will
be carried down into the earth away
from the roots of plants. 3. The capil
lary attraction of moisture and plant
food to the surface from great depths in
the earth will be conserved. By deep
breaking np of the soil it is made capa
ble of absorbing rains aud melting snows
which, when stored deep in the earth,
are brought by capillary action to the
surface to sustain the growth of crops.
If the soil by deep plowing each season
and subsoil plowing occasionally is made
capable of retaining the moisture of raiii3
and snows there is an inexhaustible sup
ply of both moist lire and plant food which
may lie relied upon to sustain the grow
ing crop and no vain wishing and wait
ing for rains will lie necessary.
Cf fore plowing the garden it may be
manured heavily with well rotted stable
manure. That plowed under will assist
greatly to warm up the soil for early
planting in the spring. After plowing a
heavy ccat of manure may be applied to
the surface, which will impart fertility
to the soil during the winter through the
operation of snows and rains, and in the
spring the refuse and trash remaining
may be raked off and used on the fields,
A garden of vegetables is of great im
portance ami only secondary a garden
of fruits being "first of all" and the
earlier these vegetables can be had in
the spring the better.

Take Care of Garden Refuse.
Weeds and garden refuse are liable to
accumulate rapidly at this season, as
during the pat wet weather hoeing has
been carried out under d.frknlties. The
larger weeds are Wst removed by the
hand and burned, following after, as
quickly as the ground will permit, with
the hoe. Allowing the larger weeds to
remain on th'. gronnd to wither r.p is
false economy, as after being cut ( if, iu
many cases, a crop of seeds will ripen off
to spring up again. All refuse vegetables
should be remove 1 as soon as the crop is
gathered, for if allowed to remain they
(nly harbor sluirs. In th" practice of
some farmers all suc h material is burned
in a sinothe-r with other garden refuse,
the ashes remaining proving far more
beneficial to the ground and crops that
follow than allowing yich material to
remain to be dug into tlx- ground there
after as a manure, and uloiig with it
probably the t-ggs of slug? in abundance.
Garget is tin inflammation of the udder,
sometimes involving only one-quarter of
the bag. br.t oftener cne-half. The af
fected portion tiecomos swollen, hard
aud feverish, and the milk whn drawn
from that portion is thick aud some
times bloody. This condition, may be
brought on by a blow on the outside,
and in the case of a fresh cow that for
any cause has gone without being milk
ed for a day or two. It may also be in
duced. Oftener the predisposing cause
will be unknown, but whatever it may
be an excellent remedy is bathing the
bas several times a day with water as
hot as can le borne by the hand, along
with the use of laxative food. The milk
from the affected part should then be
drawn as fooh and as completely as the
case will admit. Timely attention will
usually prevent such cases from becom

Ducks' eggs for eating are not so pala

Rural New Yorker has made a very
important discovery of the value of hot
water in destroying the ravenous rose
bug. It is sprayed on the insects, or the
plants or trees infested by them, heated
sufficiently to be at a temperature of 130
degs. when it reaches the insects. This
kills them instantly and does not injure
At a Kew York farmers' institute it
was stated that it is not necessary to cut
corn for the silo, but it is better. If great
care is taken in the packing the corn
fodder need not be cut, but it must be
packed closely in the corners and at the
sides. It may be set down as a fact that
if the corn is well packed it will keep
well put into the silo whole.
