Mr. McEnery was the only Democratic
Senator who voted for the Dingley bill,
and his course, he told his constituents,
was dictated by two reasons: (1) The bill
carried substantial protection to the inter?
ests of the whole country, the South's in
UreBts along with others. He considered
that the South's present interests needed
protection. The South as a huge plantation
had no stake in protection. But that day
had passed, and now when ner manufac?
turing and mineral interests were to be
considered, their development could only
be secured by the means that had proved
successfull elsewhere. (2) What he was
asking and assisting in obtaining for his
section he was willing to vote to bestow
upon other sections. The sugar interesL
of Louisiana had no greater claim upon
the consideration of the protection senti?
ment of Congress than had the different
interests of other States represented in
that body. Mr. McEnery's reference to
the Sugar Trust was that the fight that the
Trust made in the Senate and the defeat
to which, in the end, the Trust was obliged
to go. He praised the sugar schedule
prepared by the House, and declared that
it eliminated all trusts inilueuces, which
had been so potent in the previous Con?
gress and had been able to dictate the
the sugar schedule of the Wilson bill. Of
the amendments offered by the Democrats,
to restore the ad valorem duties of the
Wilson bill, Mr. McEnery pointed out that
"it received the support of the opponents
of the bill and the Sugar Trust, for no bet?
ter schedule could have been asked by the
Trust. It was the schedule which it dic?
tated, and the one under which it so
rapidly progressed to power and influence.

The Change the People Got in 1894.
Boston Journal, Rep].
The people voted for change. They got
it. Even before the Gorman-Wilson mon?
strosity went into effect prices began to go j
down. The cost of living was cheapened.
Nobody has denied that?no body
will deny it. But?and here is the vital
fact which very soon made the people j
excediDgly weary of their "change"
?wages began to drop even before j
prices did. Tbey fell faster and they fell [
farther. Of what advantage is the re?
duction in price of, say, foreign woolens
from $2 to $1.75 per yard to the machanic
whose daily pay has been sliced down from
$2 to $1.50?or, may be, cutoff altogether?

TEACHING BY PHONOGRAPH.
Novel Scheme of n Jiew York Profes?
sor of Languages to Save Labor.
The phonograph, which has passed
through many commercial vicissitudes,
has proved itself a most practical and
valuable device in a field originally
unthought of. For the last five years
a New York professor of languages has
taught various tongues by phonograph
in all parts of the world, but especially
in South America and Mexico. He fur?
nishes a text book, say for Spaniards to
learn English, arranged in 20 lessons.
These lessons are also given in his own
voice on 20 cylinders. Accompanying
these transcribed cylinders are 20 blank
ones. The graphophonc, which is a
variation of the phonograph, is found a
convenient instrument to send to the
pupil. There is also sent a cylinder
containing a lesson in any language,
with a chapter or scene from a comedy
or a novel, or with a song or a ballad.
Blank cylinders for the return mes?
sages or recitations cost 20 cents apiece.
The pupil, thus equipped, opens the
book at the first lesson, puts the tubes
into his ears and starts the machine
slowly. He repeats this practice on
any passage, again and again, more and
more rapidly, until he is thoroughly
familiar with every intonation and ac?
cent. Having in this way mastered the
first lesson he puts one of the blank
cylinders in the machine and answers
the questions of the lesson. This cylin?
der, inclosed in a little box, goes back
to the teacher, who, with a stenog?
rapher by his side, listens to the recita?
tion and dictates his corrections and
criticism. The letter and cylinder go
back to the pupil, who compares his
own utterances with the original cyl?
inder at the points indicated in the
teacher's letter and is enabled to tell
wherein his defect Bes and how to cure
Over 1,000 phonographs have been
Eold for this purpose. Its immense
value as a teacher lies in the fact that it
uever wearies and will go on repeating
the same passages either with the
same or varied intonation for thou?
sands of times, if necessary, so that the
pupil can learn by assiduous practice
to reproduce the finest shades of in?
flection and thus acquire a purity of
accent that could only be otherwise
attained by long residence in the coun?
try where the language is spoken. An
extension of this idea, which has al?
ready taken shape, is the giving of vo?
cal lessons by phonograph. This, how?
ever, is a much more complex matter,
and It is doubtful whether it can be
made more than a qualified success.
One of the most vital things in singing
Is color, and this is just what most
phonographs fail to reproduce. If an
instrument can be made that can be re?
lied upon to do this the burden of vocal
teaching can be greatly lightened, and
American students of singing can en
joy a European course of tuition with
out needing to cross the ocean for it.?

HAY AND HOG RACK.
A Combination Structure Which

A lote number of the Canadian
Farmers' Advocate contained the ac?

side of the box, iya inches thick and any

on each end and in the center, nailed
on with 3-inch wire nails to receive
the cross pieces of the sides of the rack.
Fig. 2 represens the front board, which
is double. The lower portion of the

Fig. 2 except that no s*take is needed.
Fig. 3 shows one of the sides held to?

rack requires side pieces 3 feet 7 inches
long. Fig. 4 represents the hay rack
complete. It ii necessary to have a
good, strong bottom. It is also well to
have wagon rods having thumb nuts
pass through the box across the center
and ends to hold it firmly. A long rack
should have four cross pieces. Fig. 5
shows how the sides are lifted) off or

deep, but 11 or 12 will answer. Fig. 6

double backboard 12 Inches wide which
holds the hind shelving or hurdle in
place. B B are nailed to standards A
on the outside. Fig. 7 shows1 the sheep
rack. The end boards are placed in
position, and the right-hand1 shelving
is put on the left side of the box and
the left on the right. The end uprights
of the sides slip clown between stand?
