FABMEBS' INSTITUTE.
Now that the year is drawing- to
a close and crops have been in most
cases gathered, estimates verified,
farmers can do well to look over
the past years' work as to expenses
and profits. The old mode of farming-
ior general results is past.
Each field and crop should be on its
own merits, bear its own expenses
and at the end of the year give fair
profits on the investment. Experi
ments are expensive to the average
farmer. Besides we have experi
ment stations which give data, fig
ures and methods by which crops
are successfully grown and stock
reared and matured. Not all these
experiments are suited or applicable
to all localities, hence the necessity
of farmers coining together to ex
change individual efforts along ag
ricultural lines. Original research
and experiments of very great ben
efit may originate with the farmer
himself. No better time can be
spent in gaining- information on
agricultural methods than at a
properly conducted Farmers' Insti
tute. The Institutes may be termed a
sort of learning- house where meth
ods are compared, unprofitable lines
abandoned and tried method recom
mended. Farmers' Institutes should be
held in every neighborhood or pre
cinct throughout the count)'. These
meetings should be conducted in
such a manner that every one will
feel at home and take an individ
ual interest. These neighborhood
institutes should be followed b)T
district or county institutes where
speakers and workers can be had
who have made special study of cer
tain liues of agriculture speakers
known as specialists. Not all
would be able to attend these dis
trict institutes but those who do
would return to their precincts
with new ideas, new zeal and as a
result the whole farming- country
throughout would be in touch.
The great question to be grap
pled with seems to be how to make
farming- more profitable and invit
ing. Like any other calling- it
must be reduced to a business on
business principles. And when
farming is made to appeal to high
intellectual researches the often
asked question why do the farmer
boys leave the farm?" can be
answered, the boj's do stay on the
farm and the girls with them.

American Federation of Labor met
yesterday with President Gompers pre
siding. Telegraphic invitations to hold
the next meeting of the federation in
Kansas City were received from officials
of that city. The roll was called for
expressions on views regarding time of
Labor day and rate of wages for street
laborers in different cities of the coun
try. Responses were made by many
delegates, beveral rasolntions were
adopted, among the most important be
ing one to send fraternal delegates to
Canada, to confer with labor trades of
Canada.
The afternoon session was marked by
many vigorous speeches, especially was
this the case in regard to the protest
offered against the appointment of E.
JT. Paxson to be interstate commerco
commissioner. After referring a com
munication from the New Jersey Fed
eration of Trades, in reference to
a suppressed report of a board of arbi
tration in regard to strikes, Edward
Harford of the Railwaj- Employes
nnion, fraternal delegate from Eng
land, and Hon. J. H. Wilson, associate
fraternal delegate, adressed the feder
dation. M. Henri Cardozo, a representative of
the French government investigating
the steel industries in the United States,
was presented and spoke briefly, ex
plaining the purpose of his visit.
The report of the committee that
financial aid be given the textile work
ers of Atlanta and that an adviser be
sent to them, after some discussion was
adopted.
Protest Against Paxnon.
The stir of the session came when the
following resolution was taken up. pro
viding for a protest on the part of the
executive council against the reported
proposed appointment of E. M. Paxson
to be interstate commerce commissioner
Whereas, "We are in formed that E. M,
Paxson is to be appointed interstate com
merce commissioner; ami.
Whereas, E. M. Paxson has shown bv
his conduct in resigning the high oflicc of
chief justice of the supreme court of the
state of Pennsylvania, by telegraph, for
tho purpose of accepting an appointment
as recicver of the Philadelphia and Head
ing railroad, and assisting in wrecking
that company; and,
Whereas, E. M. Paxson has always
shown an intense hatred for organized
labor and his on every occasion when an
opportunity presented itself used his offic
ial position to injure the interests of wage
earners, as instanced by his action in de
scending from the supreme court bench
for the purpose of acting as a committing
magistrate in the easo of the Homestead
strike, in order to throw the weight of his
judicial position in the balance against
wage earners who are struggling for liv
ing wages; therefore, be it
Resolved, That the executive council be
instructed to enter a protest against his
appointment as interstate commissioner.
It was referred to the committee on
resolutions.
This announcement of the sense of
the resolution and the action of the
federation was followed up by P. J.
McGnire in a caustic speech, and amid
much applause he moved that the pres
ident of the federation be instructed to
telegraph the president of the organiza
tion's protest against the rumored ap
pointment of Paxson. This- motion
was enthusiastically supported by many j
speakers and was carried unanimously.
It is altogether admirable
hen a man, by dint of
leer will, wrings a for
tune from niggardly
circumstances. Tne
world is full
of instances
where men
have done this,
but never in
history was this
accomplished
by a weak and
unhealthy man.
Ill-health not
only weakens
every physical
function but ev-
f
ery. menial lac
ulty and every
moral quality.
If a man will
stop and reason
for a moment,
he does not
have to be a physician to understand the
causes of impure blood, or its far-reaching
effects. When a man's digestion is disor
dered, his liver sluggish, his bowels inac
tive, the blood is deprived of the proper
food elements, and the sluggish liver and
bowels supply in their place, the foulest
of poisons. The blood is the life-stream.
When it is full of foul poisons, it carries
and deposits them in every organ and tis
sue of the body. Bone, sinew, muscle, and
flesh-tissue, the brain cells and the nerve
fibres are all fed upon bad, poisonous food.
Serious ill-health is bound to result. The
man is weakened in every fiber of his body.
He is weakened physically, mentally and
morally. He suffers from sick headache,
distress in stomach after meals, giddiness
and drowsiness, loss of appetite and sleep,
bad taste in the mouth, shakiness in the
morning, and dullness throughout the day.
and lassitude and an indisposition to work.
Sooner or later these conditions develop
consumption, nervous prostration, malaria,
rheumatism, or some blood or skin disease.

the best of all known medicines for ambi
tious, hard-working men and women. It is

It makes the appetite keen and hearty, and

Vancouver Inland.
San Francisco, Dec. JG. The Mer
chant exchange has received a telegram
from Nanaimo, in which the captain of
the missing steamer Cleveland says that
his vessel has been wrecked on the coast
of Vancouver island. No details are
