while her mother tyould weep foebly

But her w^njlerlng thoughts were losf

The air was sweet and tender, but
dead leaves rustled against t)orothea'u

the first morning of her return to j

a 16iikci period than she had" expected
?a longer period tban she had do- j

excuse for refusing the extended invitation
of her friends, and, moreover,
her.,father had, for reasons of his own,
insisted on her making her stay as
long aa possible. Bhe had*: obeyed her
father by remaining with her friends,
but the marriage upon which he had
set his heart waa brought no nearer
by her* doing so. Hen reception at

proaches and teaj-s, and it was to avoid
a renewal of. the storm that she had,,
left tho house shortly after breakfast
and botaken herfcelf to the solitude of

Meredith watched her coming from
the spot whereon they had parted

FARMER AND
PLANTER
FERTILIZERS.
During tho past twenty-flve years
farmers have paid more and more
attention to Increasing their crops by
the use of tho all-Important plant
foods which are supplied by fertilizers.
Tho result has been the raising
of larger and better crops, a material'
improvement of the farm Itself, and n
bettered financial and social standing
of tho farmer.
The various artificial manures, called
fertilizers, have come into general
use since.the year 1810. In that yoai
the famous German fchemist, Iiaron
Von Liebig, published his epoch-making
book on agricultural chemistry.
Every farmer should bear In miud the
principles underlying the use of com
merclal fertilizers, which were first
defined by Lieblg, as follows:
"(1) A soil can be termed (ertlle
only when it contains all the materials
requisite for tho nutrition of plants in
the required quantity and in the proper
form.
"(2) With every c[op a part of these
ingredients is removed. A part of
hie I- -
,?.??*? ,/<?!?.. ia huuuu again irom tne
inexhaustible store of the atmosphere;
another part, however, is lost forever
if not'replaced by man.
"(3) The fertility of the soil remains
unchanged if all the ingredients
of the crop are given back to the land. j
Such a restitution Is effected by in a- |
nure. (It may bo stated that there j
is Borne loss due to leaching and a1
change -of availability of food applied.)
"(4) The manure produced in the
course of husbandry is not suflieient
to maintain permanently the fertility
of a farm. It lacks the constituents j
which are annually exported in the
shape of grain, hay, milk and livestock."
Practical experience has proved
that, as a rule, nitrogen, phosphoric
acid and potash are the substances
most needed to be applied to soils, to
make or to keep them fertile and j
mat many soils are improved by tho
mere addition of lime. In conjunction
\Tith these elements, soils must contain
a certain Amount of humus or decayed
organic matter, to maintain
them In a proper mechanical condition
Phosphoric acid Is necessary for tho !
healthy growth of plants, and is essential
to the best production of straw
and seed. Its deficiency in a soil is
shown by the want of vigor in its
plant life. To produce Its full effect,
however, it must be used on a soli
already rich in nitrogen, or be associated
with nitrogen in the fertilizer;
otherwise it will produce a tall, pale
and spindling growth of straw with
very small increase of-grain or fruit.

maturity -and should be used freely
on nil crops which It Is desired to
ripen early.
Nitrogen is necessary to the production'
of protoplasm (the physical,
basis of life). Without it there can
bo no plant growth; it is a powerful
stimulant and, when present in excess,
causes a rapid and excessive, but wa,tery;
and..unnatural growth, which is
made at the expense of frultfulness.

matured"; on cotton, by great, growth
of plant and but few blosspms, which
mature fewer bolls; on fruit trees, by
a rapid and sappy growth which produces
little fruit.
Leguminous crops (such as clover,
beans, peas, etc.) draw their supply
of nitrogen from the air, and there
fore an artificial application of nitrogen
fertilizer to this class of plants
is rarely needed.
Potash is ' found in large proportions
in all plants. It Is essential to
the production of fitarch fibre and the
growing 4>arts of the plant; without
it there can hot ho full development

1 f ER9 AND THE TARIFF.
Appeal tor Revision Unlikely to Have
Much Effect,
Tf <o ?..l-- ll-.i '
?v om&uicii mat wmie a majority |
of the farmers of tho northern states
continue to vote to keep tho ltepub-'
lican party In power all tho organl/.atlona
of farmepfl are urging tariff reform.
Tho farmers' unions anil the
Society of Equity have since their
organization been demanding that the
tariff which protects the trusts be revised,
although the majority of tho i
members have been voting to indorse 'i
tho standpat Republican program. The !
granges, which used to bo such a :
power In politics, and now continue as I
independent organizations f?r t?ir> I
eflt of farmers, lmvo been dominated j
by a Republican ring, but even tbeso >
have lately seen the light. At the last i
meeting of the National Grange in
November the following resolutions
were passed unanimously:
"Resolved, By the National Grange
in Hartford, Conn., assembled Novom
ber 13, 1907, that wo believe that tho
general welfare of tho country do*
niands an exhaustive and thorough
tariff revision, and that the tariff he
removed from every article that is being
sold in foreign markets cheaper
than at home.
"Resolved, That we urge upon the
members of tho grange throughout
the United States to take speedy action
and use every influence at their
command to secure the carrying out
of the sentiments of thcso resolutions."
That Is the Democratic position, but
there is no probability of the Republican
majority in congress paying any
heed to the demands of the farmers,
for Speaker Cannon, who rules the
Republican roost, has packed the committee
on ways and means on purpose
to prevent tariff consideration. There
is a vague protnlse in the air to revise
the tariff "after election," but. us
Speaker Cannon has declared to the
Manufacturing Potters' association
that their Industry needs that tin; tar
Iff be revised higher, what hope is
there that any general reduction ?>f the
tariff will be made "after election" If
the Republicans elect the president
and a majority of congress?
How can the National Grange expect
the Republican party to remove
the tariff "from every article that is
being sold in foreign markets cheaper
than at home?" Such a reform would
compel the trusts to reduce the price
of their products at least 30 per cent.
Where would the Republican party
raise its campaign fund, if not from
the trusts? The money power would
bo the only source left, and the trusts
and the money power are so closely
united that if you hit a trust a Wall
street bank squeals.

Prei .s inspired a
statt i! that ho is
mlsu.s. ouJ.m patronage in Mr.
Taft'g behalf "is an unquali(led lie," |
and the additional information is furnished
from the White Ilouso that
this statement is contained in a letter
written t9 P close friend of Mr. Roosevelt's
in Indiana. It is supposed that
this close friend is William Dudley
Foulke of Richmond, former chairman
of the civil service commission. Sena
tors and representatives who contend
that they havo ground for (he belief
that the allegations are justified, are
answering this inspired announcement
with the challenge: "if it is an unqualified
lie, we should like to havo
certain things explained."
In order to get tho desired explanation
a resolution for an investigation
will probably bo offered in tho senate
unless the Republican leaders determine
that it Is bad politics, if Republicans
are afraid to investigate,
they will havo to accept tho imputation
of being prevaricators, which
President Roosevelt declares they are,
but it would seem that an investigation
should bo mado. Tho Democrats

Republicans Oppose Reform,
Civil service reform Is a Democratic
policy which the Republicans were
compelled to ad<>i>t when Mr. Tlldou
was tho leader of the Democratic !
party. For all thoso years the ltopublicans
have protended to favor
civil service reform, but have evaded
the law whenover possible. It is,
therefore, nothing to bo surprised at
*jien the lenders of thought In tho
Republican party resolve against reform.
