What Soil Study Will Do.
A farmer in Ohio wrote to the De
partment of Agriculture that lie had
struggled for twenty years on an eighty
acre farm heavily mortgaged, but bad
been unable to reduce his debt or rise
above poverty that made the bringing
up of his family a humiliation. He
asked if there was any hope for him
Upon the farm, or if he might as well
give up the tight. The department re
quested that he make a detailed report
of his farm and its soils, and upon this
it based a plan of fanning which he
was recommended to follow to the let
ter. There was a profit the first year
of !>2,O<>0 and the department believes
that ultimately the despised eighty
acres can be made to yield $5,000 a
year. - Ex.
Uses for a Husband.
"My husband is such a handy man
around the house," I recently hoard a
wife" remark with pride, says a writer
in the New idea. She went on to tell
how he could dry dishes when the maid
was out. and even enjoyed getting a
meal. It seems to me to be a popular
fallacy among wives that a useful man
about the house is the most desirable
husband. I have noticed, however?
and my observation on this point,owing
to my interest in the subject, has been
wide ? that the men who do a maid's
work are the ones who don't make
enough money to pay an extra maid

Iho other fellow lias the right to
Ltle tho question for himself, just like
ho (Bryan) has done. Briofly and to
o point, Mi*i Bryan makes tho liquor
diort n personal issue which each
n an must decide for himsolf, or that
communities should deal with as the
mti iorily think best.

ISO to ho passed upon by separate
. immunities. Thai is to say, undor tho
Slocum law, which Mr, Bryan approves,
no license to sell liquor can DO issued in
a municipality of his Slate unless the
voters approve that jnilicy. If thoy
vote for licensing the liquor trnflic in a
particular town or city, why that town
has saloons; if the sentiment is against
saloons no license? can he issued.
"We have been taught to believe that
a plan like that is the very essence of
Democratic government that it is the
principle upon which the foundation of
a republic rests, and that when you dig
Out any part of tho aforesaid founda
tion, the entire structure is liable to
collapse. Sumptuary laws have never
been a part and parcel of Democratic
faith; they have never appealed to
Democrats who believe in a strict con
BtrUCtlon of our constitution and the
widest, freedom for the individual."
This would appear on its face to he
an invention of the enemy to he a fab
rication designed to injure Mr. Bryan.
No. so. The Chattanooga News is one
of his blind, unreasoning supporters'and
accepts the authority of The Baltimore
News in the matter, as well it may, for
the above is really but a reiteration of
Mr. Bryan's well-known views upon
this subject. So there will be no pro
hibition plank in the national Demo
cratic platform this year, as some have
fondly hoped. "It is not likely that there
will be a re-allirmalion of the immemo
rial declarationngainsl sumptuary laws,
but the platform committee will no
doubt, content itself with cutting this
out and with passing over in silence

Continuing its comment our Chatta
nooga contemporary says:
"Mr. Bryan holds to tho ancionl faith.
... in comparison with many of those
gentlemen who are going about over
I this country, the United State: , preach
ing temperance by statutory law, Mr.
Bryan appears to advantage. And tho
statement that he made at Baltimore is
more evidence that he will not pander
to popular clamor to get voles. . . .
His declaration on tho teinporanceques
t ion will probably convlnco a number of
his critics in this Slate that he is an old
line Democrat after all."
upon this subject he undoubtedly is.
