Hl'IM AGAINST HATS.
The I-o to Corn-Grower From
I'ent U a Heavy Tax.
A correspondent to the Breeders'
"The loss to corn-growers from
rats is a heavy tax. It would be in
teresting to know the extent of dam
age done to the farmers' produce by
these wasteful boarders. Where
corn is stored iu cribs to which rats
have access, as they have to the
bulk of the crop, the damage in one
year is not easily comprehended.
Suppose that the rats damage 1 per
cent of the corn cribbed or piled in
sheds and barns and we have an an
nual loss of one bushel in every 100;
20.000,000 bushels in a crop of 2,000,
000.000. But if the fanner with corn
in rail pens or cheap board pens will
take pains to find out his actual loss
from rats he will find that often
times it will run up to 5 per cent.
The loss Is largely avoidable, yet if
not prevented increases from year to
year as rats multiply.
"It will soon be time to crib corn.
If the crii s are set on posts extend
ing a foot above ground and capped
with an inverted tin pan, and the
crib is not in contact with any other
building or object by which rats can
S climb into the th" crib, the corn is
safe from r:its. The increased cost
I of making a crib rat-proof will be
1 save in one year. If we in the
com belt re to be caved from the
' plague of ruts we must build against
them. The common plan of harbor
. ing and fetding them is worse than
I harboring trumps. We know the
' clock of rats on the farm can be
! reduced ho that the sight of one is
rare, and the loss of corn in store is
: nothing, b"cane we have tried it.
It is in. !y in c. -arv to store grain
whi le i ats cannot get at it to re
duce their numbers. Our stores of
grain and corn are their chief sup
por. After one bus built rat proof

able as a subordinate department,
because he cannot consume the
coarse fodders of the farm. He fur

sell the by-products of the mill and

him about, so that his environments

they have suitable media. Avoid
clone breeding, as it intensifies pre

breeding from good milkers, as this

Strawberries cannot well be given
too much culture. Even the wild
strawberry is productive iu propor
tion a3 it chances to grow in a spot
free from weeds and grass. When
thus hindered it makes only a slen
der, spindling growth and bears few
and sorry berries.
A dish of strawberries, fresh from
your own garden, is the greatest
luxury you can have on your table.
If you do not care to grow them for
market, at least raise enough for
your own use. If you have none
now, set out a bed shis fall and get
your reward next summer.
Waste In Farming
Success in farming, as
other business, depends
prevention of waste. It is a waste
of land to give it only half the culti
vation it needs; it is a waste to feed
it to a poor animal; it is a waste of
time to spend it half-doing a thing.

Ex-Governor Francis, of Missouri,
is quoted as saying: "Ivich year
the local paper gives from $."00 to

iu which it is located. No other
agency can or will do this. The edi
tor, in proportion to his means, does
more for his town than any other
ten men. He ought to be supported,
not because you like him personally,
or admire his writing, but because a
local paper is the best investment a
local people can make. It may not
be brilliantly edited or overcrowded
with thought, but financially it is of
more benefit to the community than
the teacher or preacher. Under
stand me, I do not mean morally or
intellectually, but financially.
hon't think that your liver needs
treating if you are bilious. It don't. It's
your stomach. That is, your stomach is
really what causes the biliousness. It
has put your liver out of order. See
what's the matter with your stomaeh.
Sick stomach poisons the liver and then
there's trouble. Shaker hiirestive Cor

thev did lat fall put on spring clothes)
and came down town. Hut what riiiht
did the Republicans have to rejoice .
over the discovery of more gold? Didn't I
thev tell ns there" was enough gold 'r,
the world? If there was enough gold,
any more would be t'o much. And !
vet the Republicans aetuallv laughed !
j to tind out it was well to have more
gold. We were not so particular a vout !
money as the Republicans were. Thev j
in si -ted that we had enough gold in the
world end enough money in this coun- j
l try. e wanted more gold to be found
j and more silver to be found, and we
ihalarightto rej'dee in the discovery
, of more gold. We insisted that more
raonev meant more happiness, and, if
you doubt it, see how happy the Repub
licans were when there was more gold
j '-Where did the next ray of hope come
i from? From the w heat" field. Wheat
had gone up. Why, my friends, dollar
wheat is on our side. We wanted dol
lar wheat. What the Republicans said
we want is a dollar to buy more than it
ever bought before. You read the
pamphlets sent out to railroad sound
money clubs, telling them what would
be the effect on tho-e who were work
ing for wai-es to have the prMucts rise,
and yet you tind them rejoicing in the
rise of products, and thus they find
their second inspiration. Take what
the Republicans said last year about
having money enough, and "what they
are now saying about the advantages of
discovering more gold. Take what thev
said about the advantage of rising dol
lars, and what they now cay about
rising prices. They remind me of a
man wbo was traveling in the mountain
by a path that was so cooked that he
often met himself coming back.
(Laughter and applaus?.) I want to
ask you, are not the Republicans meet
ing themselves coming back? Why
don't they admit it? It is because they
are so ashamed of what they said last
fall that they will not recognize them
selves face to face?
"I submit to vou that the Republi
cans are to-day answering their own
arguments. Why, I noticed the other
dav up in Iowa a paper said, be
patient, prices will rise, and so will
wages. They said last year they would
now. We wanted a general rise in
prices and we insisted that the wages
and all other things would adjust them
selves to the new level, and yet now
they are trying to get credit" for the
spasmodic rise in certain products, but
tell tne laboring man w oe patient, mat
prices will rise, and his wages will rise,
so he will not suffer anything. Well,
they are learning. It is a slow process,
but they are learning. Last year was
the tirst year that they admitted any
thing was wrong. Hefore that they
said be content with our lot. When we
said anything was wrong, they would
point to some other nation in Europe
and say we were better off than they,
and ought not complain. I'p to last
year they said be content. I believe in
contentment, but I think it can be car
ried too far.
"But my friends, I have now stood
here in this night air and kept you
here, calling attention to theseevidences
of the fact that we are right and our
opinions are right, lou tell me that
the silver craze is going to die out; I
tell vou it will not die out as long as it
is being vindicated as it is now. You
cannot kill a thing by proving it is
right, and the Republican party is ad
mining now nearly every important
position we took on the monev question
last fall, and instead of being ended,
the money question Is lust being begun
Those who began last year the warfare
for financial independance are waging
it this vear, and I want to warn vou
mv friends, that this contest ia not over
when we secure merely financial inde
pendence. It will go on until that doc
trine of equality before the law, of equal
rights to all and special privileges to
none, is inscrbed upon the walls of
every executive oilice, of every legisla
tive'liall, of every room where a court
meets, from Justice of the Peace to the
Supreme Court of the United States. It
means that the people who constitute
this nation, those described by CH.rl.vle
in Pi- as the ones who proiuee tne
wealth and pay the taxes of the
country, can make their wants felt in
legi-lation, and tutt the non producers
of the nation shall no longer have a
monopoly on the production of laws.
It means, my friends, better govern
ment, more economic administration of
government, more justice in the levying
of taxes; it means that this shall lie a
government of the people, for the peo
ple, and by the people, and lhis govern
ment shall not perih from the earth."
