People who picture the present
secretarv of agriculture as a bucolic
gentleman in a pair of overalls have
an entirely false conception of him.
He is not that kind of a farmer in
the sense that the word is generally
used. He has never "broke out the
middles" with a balky mule and a
plow whose clevis was set a notch too
high. All of his life he has had
money. He went to Nebraska many
rears" ago with $30,000 in his pocket.
He is a graduate of the Ann Arbor
university and Ann Arbor law school.
His villa in finish and architectural
design is the most notable residence
in the state. He has fads. Book
binding is one of them. He judges
woodcuts and will tell you at a
glance whether an impression is
hand made of machine work. In his
leisure moments he will cap quota
tions from Horace with any one who
is not fresh from school. He has a
rery nice and discriminating literary
taste as well as a thorough knowl
edge of literary form. He knows a
vilanelle when he sees it (does Secre
tary of Agriculture Morton), and will
.Trlain with earnest interest in his
subject the superior merit of the bal

He is a. treat tree-tend ins man and

The New Apportionment.
Warren County Democrat.
The new apportionment laws make
marked changes in this part of the
state regarding both the senatorial
and congressional districts. In the
24th senatorial district Hancock is
set to the south with McDonough
and Schuyler to form a democratic
ticket, while Henderson and Mercer
are united with Warren and Knox to
form a district with a dark, brooding
republican majority. It rqi Me seen
the new 35th district will be com
posed of parts of three separate dis
tricts. Warren will bid adieu to Mc
Donough and bow to Henderson,
Mercer and Knox.

Moderation the Secret of Digestion.
"The secret of digestion is moderation,"
aid an old man the other day, who at 73
has the complexion of a girl and the relish
for food of a schoolboy. "It seems absurd
to me that persons should suddenly discov
er that many articles of food upon which
our ancestors lived to a preen old age are
extremely detrimental to health and lon
gevity. X have never considered wnat i
ought to eat, only what I wanted to eat,
but I have made it a rule of my life to al
ways leave the table wanting Just a little
"I did not leave the home roof, which
was on a farm, until I was nearly 80 years
old, and it was my habit from November
till April to eat a piece of mince pie every
night just before going to bed. It was
rather a small piece, out lnvar.auiy wun
it and do not recall ever having even a bad
dream in consequence.
"And I think, too. that digestion is like
salvation to be worked out individually.
We are not all Baptists or Methodists; why
must everybody be a vegetarian or some
other food crank f When I got away from
the mince pie country, missing it, I took
fruit in its place. A friend who saw me
eating an apple one night hurled at me the
old saw, 'Fruit is gold in the morning, sil
ver at noon, lead at night.' 'Nonsense!' I
cried, and retorted with another proverb.
What is one man s meat is another man a
poison.' And I've continued to eat some
thingusually fruit every night of my
life." New York Times.
A Boy Idea of Ills Kfatlve Town.
I once knew quite a number of queei
things about my country town and other
country towns in general. I always im
agined as a boy that some day my town
would g) to growing like other towns and
become a big city with factories ami long
streets. I thought if I were worth a few
millions that I would take the money and
build an immense lot of houses, and then
people would move in of course. I
planned that I would lay a street car line
from the depot to my house, or lay it along
some street so that I could ride to and fro,
and, of course, the street car line would
give the town a metropolitan air. Now
this is the queer fact I wanted to get at. I
outgrew my desire to make my native town
a city. It soon became apparent to me that
the little town must always remain little,
because there was no great river, lake or
sea near by, and it only had one railroad.
But in my town there were men who had
attained some financial standing, who had
never been able to outgrow this idea, and
so Menominie, Wis., has a street car line
that runs for about a mile from a factory
to a home, the residence of a man who,
though successful, is still a boy in thought.
He had the old idea that a street car line
would make Menominie metropolitan, and
he never outgrew the thought. So the car
line is there with one little dinky street
car and a donkey but no one ever rides on
it or cares to ride on it. The owner must
be ashamed of it now, bit it would be more
mortifying to him to tear-it up and aban
don it because of the old acquaintances
who saw him put it down. Since I left
home I have seen any number of towns
Just like Menominie, with just such men.
