A $t,000 FARM FOR $7,000.
rhat la IHiat s Vermont Wool Grower la
How is it possible that there should
Itill be uny wool growers left in thia
eonntry who believe that the wool tax is
Df any benefit to them? The fact that
wool has beemgoing down in the home
market ever since the high duties were
Imposed in 1867, and is now under the
McKinley law lower than ever, ought to
settle that question once for all.
How the decline in the price of wool
has affected the wool growers, even those
situated I rarest to the woolen mills and
enjoying all the advantage which the
protectionists see in that, is illustrated
in the exjierience of a Vermont farmer.
This man writes to The New England
Farmer to show how his farm has suf
fered in value by the decline in the price
of wool. He says:
"I own a farm of 300 acres and paid
for it rais ng wool. I continued in the
business until the price of wool and
sheep wei t down so low that I could not
pay taxes and support my family. Then,

Hamilton as a Protectionist.
Never was a dead man quoted more
falsely by his followers than Alexander
Hamilton. If he were alive today he
would be Tied down by the whole tribe
of McKinloyites us a free trader, as "an
enemy to American industry," and as
one who "serves foreign interests."
The viev s which Hamilton held are
now denounced by our high tariff ora
tors from very stump.
For exa nple. the protection which
Hamilton defended averaged less than 8
per cent, all around, while our McKin
ley tariff averages about 60 per cent and
runs above 1C0, and even 200 and 300 per
cent on some articles. With his little 8
per cent, tariff, too, Hamilton was satis
fied. In h s report on manufactures, is
sued in 17S1, he said: "It need scarcely
be observed that the duties on the great
mass of articles have reached a point
which it would not be expected to ex
ceed." And yet our SIcKinleyites a century
later give ns 00 per cent, and denounce
as "unpatriotic" the wicked Democrats
who sever, tl years ago were about to
give ns 40 jxt cent.
Our Mctinleyites, too, make it one of
the fundamental points of their creed
that "the foreigner pays the duty;" and
even now the preat McKinley himself is
defining pritection as "taxing s imebody
else's property rather than our own."
But Hamilton was a man of honest
mind who would practice no cheap de
ception upt n himself. Hamilton admit
ted that it was "true, as a general rule,
that the consumer pays the duty."
At another very important point Ham
ilton stood at variance with our latter
day protectionists. These insist that
domestic manufacturers do not charge
nior, for their goods by reason of the
duty on the foreign article. But not so
Hamilton. He, simple minded and hon
est man, could not see how there could
be any sucl: thing as protection at all if
the manuf.icturer did not get higher
prices. Here is the way he put it down
in plain b'ack and white, "Duties evi
dently amount to a virtual bounty,
since, by ethancing the charges on for
ign articlen, they enable our manufac
turers to m.dersell foreign competitors.
Here is another good, square admission
of the same thing, "As a duty upon a
foreign article makes an addition to its
price, it causes an extra expense to the
community for the benefit of the domes
tic manufi-cturer; a bounty does no

In the markets of continental countries
will soon be removed. He Bays: "The
email crops of cereals in the European
countries and the- financial troubles in
Great Britain will necessitate the admit
tance of our pork, and the result will be
a much lar, ex sale of our products than
ever before, not only of pork, but other
articles of f xd as well."
But when the countries on the conti
nent remove the prohibition of our pprk,
it will then be admitted only upon pay
ment of havy duties. According to
McKinley 's notion our farmers will pay
those duties How do they like the

Amelia W. King in Business Woman's Jour
nal. A Word for the Earthworm.
The earthworm is an animal which has
not received that attention from zoologists
which it deserves, in spite of the fact that
its habits and structure formed the last of
that magnificent series of volumes with
which Darwin enriched scientific literature.
And it has not only been neglected by nat
uralists, but has incurred the bitter enmity
of gardeners and farmers. It is true that
the gardener has some reason for his dis
like when he sees his carefully rolled walks
and smooth lawns rendered unsightly by
the heaps of earth with which' the worm
diligently covers them.
But the farmer has no business to com
plain, for not only do earthworms form a
large part of the food of many birds, which
would, perhaps, in their absence direct
their attention more closely to his crops
and fruit trees, but they are of positive ad
vantage in loosening tbs soil, and so mak
ing passages for the rain to trickle down to
the lowest roots.
More than a hundred years ago Gilbert
White devoted oue of his fetters to the sub
ject of earthworm, and defended them
from the acc isution of uselessness and in
juriousness in the economy of nature, re
marking further, and so to a certain ex
tent anticipating Darwin, that they are
often responsible for the formation of new
soils. F. E. Beddard, M. A., in Chambers'

The "torpedo" or "cramp fish" has two
complete electric batteries on either side of
its head, constructed after the most ap
proved scientific principles. Each of them
consists of about 470 cells in the shape of
six sided tubes placed side by side. The
walls of these cells are lined with nerve
tissue and each one is filled with a clear,
trembling jelly. Precisely how many volta

of administering hits never been deter
mined, but frequent experience has shown
the power to lie sufficient to knock down
and temporarily paralyze a man.
Natives in Central America are said to
make a practice of drivincwild horses into
water where cramp fis-h are in order that
the latter may stun the frujhtened quad
rupeds and make them easy to capture. So
that a shock shall be administered, the ob
ject must be brought into contact at two
points with the torpedo, thus completing
the electric circuit.
Scientific men regard this as one of the
most interesting of natural phenomena
