KDITOK'S CHAT.
A Question in TJojmrtmont and Ono in
Racial Differences.
NOT IN GOOD TASTE.
I attended a little company lately, and one of
the young ladies sat down on the floor and now
audthen leaned on the knoes of another. Was
this in good form? There were no gentlemen
present, but it was a formal company.
So writes a C C. member, aud it is to be
hoped that she does not depart from tho usual
custom in company of occupying a seat, jusfe
as others do. Indeed, wo Are sure sho does not,
or she would not ask this question.
No, it is never in good taste to abandon oneself
too much, in company or out of it. Even when
reclining on a sofa one should not lounge down
or curl up the feet, or assume negligent atti
tudes. A sweet decorum should bo practiced by
every youug girl, and in no case should one do
anything that excites a question upon the part
of otbors.
In comnanv a young woman should sit in a
chair or on a sofa, and when she is tired of this "i
attitude she may stand or walk. Ilut under no
circumstances should she sit on the floor when
others are seated. Not that there is anything
improper in sitting on the floor, but because
ono must never be odd or do things to excite
remark.
Again, in goofl society it is not permissible to
slap one's neighbor on the back or shoulder, or
clasp hands, much less to sit down on the floor
and lean on another's knees. "Hands off" is
the rule in all cases.
stoeet bkpohtmest.
Many young girls aro very careless about
their deportment on the street. They lock
arms audjk nock against each other in walking;
or they clasp one another on tho arm, or give
one another a punch to excite attention. This
must never be done.
Iot long since two young girls from ono of
the finishing schools near New York City came
to tho metropolis with a teacher. When they
left tho train one of the girls laid her baud
upon the arm of the other.
Instantly, without comment, tho teacher
stepped forward and removed the hand quietly.
It would never have done to walk down Broad
way in such a careless manuer.
Study deportment, C. C. boys and girls. It
will go a long ways in fixing yonr place in
social and business -life. One who is exact in
little things is exact in greater. Head erect,
chest out, and eyes to tho frout!
CAN THE INDIAN BE CIVILIZED?
This is a qucstiou that has come to us re
peatedly, aud often accompanied by the an
swer, no. And this in tho face of all that the
Indian has proven himself to be capable of
under proper civilizing influences.
Without going into detail let us take for ox
ample Dr. Eastman, the Sionx physician, who
is the Secretary of the Young Men's Christian
Association of the Northwest, with head
quarters at Minneapolis.
Dr. Eastman is a graduate of two colleges, a
physician in good standing, and served under
appointment by the Government at the Pino
Eidge Indian Agency until bis removal to
Minneapolis. lie has been a contributor to St.
Nicholas, the Youth'' s Companion aud other liter
ary periodicals, and is withal a distinguished
looking, affable Christian gentleman.
Dr. Eastman was the class orator of his col
lege, respected by his associates, and excelled
in athletic sports, as well as iu his studies. He
married Elaine Goodall, one of the sister poets
of New England, and their life is ideally
happy.
This is only ono of many instances which
may be cited showing the capacity of the In
dian for civilization, and showing that God
has made of one blood all the nations that
dwell upon tho face of tho truth.

INDUSTRIAL OUTLOOK FOR WOMAN.
(Paper read before Canton Sorosis.)
That the long and by many dreaded change
of tho status of women before tho world is upon
us can be denied no longer. Though the ques
tion has been treated in a serio-comic way for
moro than half a century, tho full significance)
of the end is being shadowed forth only faintly
in the fact that there aro thousands of college
bred women taking their places in tho indus
trial field as self-elected workers, who expect
to mako individual places for themselves
through honest and earnest effort.
There seems to bo somo misunderstanding as
to the limits of tho territory to which women
aro entitled under the new regime. They can
only hold that which they have proved them
selves capable of holding.
Men have an inherent respect and apprecia
tion for honest work, both mental and physical,
and do not deny tho results, no matter whoso
work it is. It is different with women, and
the reason for this is good. YTomen havo rarely
worked, or lived, collectively, 3 men have;
consequently their life bus always been an in
dividual one.
Women havo not yet Ticcomo accustomed to
being a part, rather than a wholo. Their posi
tion has always been positive, never negative,
no matter how sharply the limitation of their
free agency was marked, or how contracted tho
area, compared with that which is now con
ceded. Men have always been surrounded on all
sides by co-workers striving for the same goal,
with whom they must match their best powers
of mind and hotly. All the while they watch
each other closely, so that if one is successful
they may imitate his methods and, if unfortu
nate, avoid his errora. All their efforts aro
subject to the criticisms of their follow work
ers. This is all foreign to women. Itcorlainly
is difficult to see both sides of a question.
What women need most is that their work
be judged impartially, and not as "woman's
work." This is ono of tho neods of tho times.
There are those who look to society, which" is
of easy approach aud full of ease; many look
no further, and are lost in tho chase of tho
"will-o'-the-wisp," social popularity.
A second avenue opeu to women leads to tho
fortress of learning. Many have beleaguered it
in spite of battlements which frowned darkly
upon their approach. With creak of hinge and
groan of door has each entrance beon won.
Women arc filling nil positions to-day. They
are accredited with some of the most useful
discoveries and inventions. Tho discovery oi
both silk aud cotton as a textile fiber; tho art
of spinning and lace-making belong to women.
In the department of mechanics we owe to her
the early perfection of tho mower and reaper,
the deep-sea telescope, tho aquarium, tho ma
chine for the manufacture ot paper bags, and
tho cotton-gin. They are originators of de
signs in -dress-goods, wall-paper, and architec
tural adornments. Women are shining lights
in scieucc, art, philosophy, dentistry, modicine,
and tho law. Eight women havo the right to
practice before the Supremo Court of tho
United States. In 1870, at the October Term
of tho Supremo Court of tho United States,
Bclva A. Lockwood applied for admission and
was denied. However, she drafted aud secured
the passage of a hiil before Congress, on Feb. 15.
1SS7, admitting women, if fully qualified, to
practice before that Court. Sho was tho first
woman to practice before the Supreme Court of
the United States. Others to follow wero Laura
DeForco Gordon, Stockton, Cal.; Ada M. Bitten
bender, Lincoln, Neb.; Carrie Burnam Kilgore,
Philadelphia, Pa.; Clara M. Foltz, San Diego,
Cal.; Lelia Robinson Sawtollo, Boston, Mass.;
Emma M. Gillett, Washington, D.C.; Kate Kane,
Chicago, 111. The major part of the law schools
of the United States now admit women. The
few to refuse aro Yale, Harvard and George
town Universities, Columbia College, Cumber
laud University of Tennessee, Washington and
Leo Universities of Virginia.
Ono woman, Alico M. Jordan, after graduat
ing at th-5 law school of Michigan University
and being admitted to practice at tho bar, in
June, 1835, entered tho law school of Yale aud
secured tho degree of Bachelor of Law, as con
ferred by Yale.
In order that tho Jordan incident may not
be repeated, wo fiud this paragraph in their
catalog:
"It is understood that tho course of instruc
tion in law is open to persons of the male sex
only."
There arc moro women graduated iu tho law
in Michigan than in any other State, and Hon.
Henry Wade Rogers, Dean of tho Law Depart
ment of Michigan University, says: "Tho
women who have attended the law school com
pare favorably in tho matter of scholarship
with the men. They aro justas capable of.ac
quirlng legal knowledge as men."
Hon. Henry Booth, Dean of Union College of
Law, says: "Wo discover no difference in tho
capacity of tho soxes to apprehend and apply
legal principles. Wo wolcomo ladies to the
school, and regard their presence an advautago
in promoting decorum and good order."
Women practice before most of tho Supremo
Courts in the States. Onoof tho last to pass the
examination and carry off the honor of the class
was Miss Eaton, of Iowa, graduate University
of Jlichigan. Thoy contribute able articles to
the law Journals, have published many works
apon the interpretation of tho law, aud aro fill

settle down to follow their chosen pursuit with
no doviation, nnd are riponing iuto able, ex
perienced lawyers, and winning a fair sharo of
clientage.
Somo prefer ofiico practice, others court prac
tico, aud when they do enter the forum, they
are cordially countenanced by their brother
lawyers. As it Avas only in 1S70 that the first
woman graduatod in a law school, thoro has
not been time enough for woman to develop
into an Erskine, Burke, or Wobster. But few
men have done so, if history speaks correctly.
It was through tho efforts of Dr. Mary Hirsh
field that women wero able to matriculate nt
the Dental Colleges.
No such opportunity has ever been offered
before for women to prove their fitness to prac
tice dentistry, as reported tit tho Columbian
Congress.
They reported that thoro "wore 150 women
practicing dentistry, and gaining a satisfactory
livelihood from their efforts.
Philadelphia has two woman dentists who
havo gained n fine practice, from which thoy
enjoy from five to eight thousand yearly.
Missouri has a woman who is President of
ono hank and Cashier of another, doing real,
practical work in both positions.
Into tho third and broadest avenue, that of
gainful occupations, aro forced multitudes of
women for self-support; tho fiold most un
friendly. From many sides theso women hear
that they aro unwelcome. It is true, thoy havo
no choice; they must be self-supporting.
Woman cannot stand on her threshold staring
with helpless pilcousness at the cold features
of the world.
Sho knows sho cannot remain inside, for tho
occupations of tho women of earlier days aro
not left to her. Tho change is
AN INEVITABLE RESULT
of a social fact. Advancement in industrial
progress has carried woman along; her placo
in tho industrial world is well established.
Woman have stepped out of industrial subjec
tion, nnd is in tho present system an economic
factor.
Tho business card of a firm whoso members
are of tho feminine sex causes no special com
ment. No moro is required of them than of
anyothor firm.
The "lady drummer" is a success; Ohio
claims one. Her salary is such that many a
"man drummer" would he glad to bo assured
oLSho is ono of no mean ability, or sho would
not enjoy her $5,000 a year.
Insurance is another business that women
have engaged in with success and profit.
Teachers aro advancing in positions as well
as salaries. It has uot been lontr sinco it was
unusual for a woman to hold tho position of
Principal. Main aro there now competent to
fill that position, and aro chosen in preforence'
to tho male applicant.
Women fill many positions, and their num
bers are on tho increase. Their salaries aro
keeping pace with those of man; hut it is
somewhat diffbrcnt with tho "wage-earners."
Ihero has been no improvement in tho re
muneration they receive, or in what is expected
of them, though they take less risk in tho fac
tories, and their surroundings havo been some
what improved.
Many now and novel enterprises aro being
conducted and made successful by women.
Who says that woman has not tho right, and
that it is not propor for her to enter any in
dustrial field, if she does well that which sho
chooses? Is not tho
BACHELOR W03IAN
inoro interesting than tho girl who was tho
toy or slave to tho man n decade ago? It is
not enough now to be a man; ho must bo a de
serving one, with a fair show of brains, or tho
modern girl can do very well without him.
Has not woman excelled tho sanguine hopes
of those who havo mado tho progross of women
a study? It is tho few and not tho many that
enter the industrial field, either from choice or
necessity.
The majority of women, by the natural laws
of heaven, must be wives and mothers, absorbed
in homo cares. Those that are in tho business
world are not "deserters" from their duties as
tho heads of the household realm.
When woman is thrown on her own resources
may she feel confident of success because she
has been so reared and educated as to enter tho
business world equally as well equipped as man.
She will fully sustain that which sho has
struggled for aud keep abreast of the times.

TO THE LOYAL IIOME WORKERS.
At Pittsburg I promised, as Chairman of tho
Committee on Rules and Uegulations, to write
an articlo on tho changes at fifth annual Re
union. Under the present system of organization
tho individual membership rules. There is no
IIouso of Lords, and each member, without re
spect to location, bo he ever so isolated, is en
titled to tho same representation, tho same
voice and vote as every other member.
Each represents himself only. We are all
equal. If you are in good standing and aro
present at Reunion you arc entitled to a voice
and vote a simple democracy. Tho majority
speaks and rules. It is your organizition and
mine, and each and all of us aro but equal
units that go to make up tho whole.
lue Rules and Regulations do not prohibit
the continuance of divisions if tho members of
tho State feel satisfied to continuo them,-but
tho division is not a logel part of tho Order
and i3 not under tho jurisdiction of tho Na
tional. It is under its own mauagement.
Each and every member is under the juris
diction of the Loyal Homo Workers, and pays
dues direct to Secretary Hargrove. Thus Di
vision reports and entanglements aro done
away with. We havo a simple National Order.
Now let us all go to work, build up such a
strong organization that wo shall not acknowl
edge a peer. Staud together. Let everyone
hustle, and wo will havo a membership away
up iu the thousands at the end of tho year.

of veterans whom I will try and persuado to
Jo-
I should like to hoar from somo of tho Guards
the best way to influence those who aro not
interested to become members of our grand,
glorious, and patriotic Order. I shall leave
nothing undone uutil I havo them all mus

At Andersontown I tried all available, but
without success. I know I shall moot with
more success at this placo, as thoy aro a moro
intelligent and enlightened people.
My plan, or rather Brother Loui Stockton's
advice, was to make n canvass and leavo a copy
of Tub National Trunusi: with thoso who
did not get it, and tell them tho objects and
benefits.
Now I should liko to learn of some of other
mode.
I shall nlso mako it an object to establish a
Camp of tho Sons of Veterans. 1 nm assured
of tho support of several of the G.A.R men ;
would bo pleased to hear from some official of
tho Sons of Veterans who could give mo iu
struction how to proceed.
I was sorry I could not get to Pittsburg, to
the Reunion; having recently started iu busi
ness at this place, 1 was unable to attend.
To tho C C. and Guards who havo sent mo
their autographs unil found mo slow in answer

not having my mail forwarded, I did not got

J live in tho mountainous part of tho Ioy

Introduction.
Our Savior had. bitter enemies. His suc
cesses stirred them up to demonstrative
opposition. Persons enemies among them
selves, ns, for example, tho Pharisees and
the Saddncees, became temporily endurable
to each other in the hope that by combining
their forces they might rout out Christ
The Pharisees were willing to solicit the aid
of even the Ilerodians in stopping the new
movement. Christ was obliged to use great
discretion so as to ward off attempts to in
jure him or his work. He withdrew him
self to the sea, went up into some mountain,
escaped into some other town or region. He
had certain work to do before death, and he
took precautions to continue till ho had
gotten his enterprise well fixed. Patiently
and wisely, in the face of such charges ns
that he wtis not select m choosing his com
pany; that he conversed freely with publi
cans; that, his disciples failed to fast; that
he professed to forgive sins ; that lie was not
particular in the observance of the Sabbath
in the face of even openly threatened
violence ho kept right on in his mission.
Great miracles snstuined his professions.
"When too dangerous he moved on, quietly
withdrew to some other section, where other
crowds gathered about him. In various
ways news reached him of proposed con
spiracies on the part of his enemies. (St.

The scene of the lesson was Lake Galilee,
in vicinity of Capernaum. (V. 3.) He had
a little before come from Jerusalem. The
Apostles lived in the vicinity of Capernaum.
Christ's ministry was for the most part spent
in that region.
.P7j7.
A boat was extemporized by Christ from
which to preach to the multitude (V. 9.),
while the peoxle stood on the shore. The
intervening water prevented the crowd from
interrupting his teachings by bringing the
sick and others fo his curing touch, Christ
wanting not alone to ad physically, but to
teach.
For the purpose of crtring y touch, itwas
necessary for Christ to be on shore.
Over 40 years ago tho " American Board "
called on the chiJdreii of our country to
contribute toward a Bhip to be used among
the Pacific Islands. Certificates of stock
were issued of 10 cents each. Each certifi
cate had a picture of a missionary brig, with
the words printed above, "He spake to His
disciples that a small ship should wait on
him." (St. Mark,3:9.
27ie jBTuUiludc
We learn these came from the extremes of
Palestine. (V. 8.) Judea is mentioned, and
we may hence suppose some wero from south
of Jerusalem. Some were from Idumea,
which bounded Palestine on the south.
Some were from Phoenicia, to wit, from Tyre
aud Sidon and the regions about those cities.
Some were from beyond Jordan, that is to
say, from Perea. The news of our Savior's
miracles spread everywhere, and persons
resorted to him from all directions. The
methods of living and lodging were very
simple, and people could there, more readily
than in countries ordinarily, live much ont-ol'-door,
travel from place to place, lodge
here aud there. Besides, the multitude were
Christ's regular disciples. (V. 7.) There
were probably women, and, not unlikely,
some children, in th6 crowds. (Cf. St. Mr.,
14:21.) The multitude were drawn to tho
presence of Christ by what they had heard
as to ins wonderful deeds. (V. 3.) Such
news spreads rapidly. We cannot estimate
the number in the crowd.
The commentator Alexander says: "This
is the fullest statement to be found in any
of the Gospels as to the extent of our Lord's
personal iuflnence and the composition of
the multitudes who followed him."
We begin thus early in tho life of Christ
to see the inclination to make him the
King.
We must not, of course, suppose the peo
ple thus crowded to Christ from a desire to
know the truth, but largely from anxiety
to get relief in their physical distresses.
Men aro often led from lower to higher mo
tives. GliriaVa Teachings and Works.
We have no report of what our Savior
taught at that time. He followed, proba
bly, in lines similar to the Sermon on the
Mount. The deeds" what great things he
did" (V. 8) are mentioned in general, but
no specific case is detailed. We notice three
kinds: a. Healings, b. Plagues, c. TJuclean
spirits. These do not probably include all,
bnt are specimens. (Compare St lit., 4,:24;
14:14.) From St Matt, 12:15, wo find
Christ in tho instance of this lesson cured
all. The method meutioued is touch. (Com
pare St. Mt, 14:3G; St Mark, 5:27,28;
G:5G; St Luke, 8:40; Acts, 5:15; 19:12.)
Healing is a general word, and i3 applied to
many of Christ's miracles. The word
plagues means scourges. Our word plague
misleads w, since to plague another indi
cates very unjust treatment God does not
plague anybody. Since in early times whips
wero much used for punishing criminals,
the word came to mean correction, chastise
ment. Such punishments suffered by mor
tals for their correction and reformation
wero in special likely tp be called plagues,
scourges. Dr. A. Clarke notices on tho 10th
verso as to plagues, "rather disorders; prop
erly such disorders as wero inflicted by the
Lord." Bloomfield says as to plagues: "The
word properly signifies a scourge, but, meta
phorically, any torturing affection, especially
disease." The word plague is often used,
too, of a disease inflicted as was thought by
any evil power; as, e. g., Satan. By"uu
clean spirits" we understand the people
believed that evil spirits? had power to incite
to wickedness the spirits themselves were
thought to befoul, vulgar, and persons under
their influence were -very unclean in lan
guage and exceedingly obnoxious in habits.
Evil is ill at ease in the." presence of purity,
and not any wicked person or spirit could
feel comfortable when near Christ His
presence was exorcising.
Suggestions.
1. It is often wise to withdraw from anv
threatening violence. It is not necessary
ono be in exactly any one place. Study
usefulness and go where one can effect tho
most good. A local principle may at times
be involved, requiring one to stick to his
position and meet violence, perhaps; but,
as a rule, when one can move on and be
moro effective, withdrawal is the thing.
Each, however, must study carefully bis
peculiar environment
2. Would the masses wero as concerned
for the mental and spiritual cure ns for the
physical ! Persons yet go many mileH and
from place to place seeking health. This is
well. We must also get a realization of the
value of soul health, and be contented no
where till cared.
3. Be glad Christ is now so located as to his
body thst he can have universal aud per
sonal supervision over us spiritually. We
need not chase over a whole country to fiud
him, and then meet such a crowd we cannot
after all touch him or be touched by him.
4. Tell of what Christ has done. (V. 8.)
Spread tho good news.
5. Let everything "wait on him." (V. 9.)
Every ship, every tool, every enterprise,
should redound to his glory.
G. Sin Is sickness. Christ is the Great
Physician. The JJalin of Gilend is salva
tion. 7. Sin all sin is a plague, and every sin
ner finds it hard to kick against the pricks.
8. Seek purity, clennliness. Away from
unclean spirit'.
9. Be so pnre that all wickedness will feel
embarrassed by your presence.
10. Keep in touch (V. 10) with Christ
Feel his presence and inspiration and help.
II. Christ's Commission to His Twelve
Apostles.
Jesus sent forth tho Twelve in probably
tho month of January of the yenr A. D. 28.
The work of commission and distribution
most likely took place in the vicinity of
Nazareth. For the names of the Twelve see
St Mat, 10:2-4; St Mark, 3:1G-19; St
Luke, G: 14-1 G ; Acts, 1 : 13-2G.
We notice Christ sent out the Twelve two
by two. By studying the groups we have
reason lo think tho pairing was as follows:
1. Sts. Peter and Andrew.' 2. Sis. James
and John. 3. Sts. Philip and Bartholomew.
4. Sts. Thomas and Matthew. 5. Sts. James
the Less and Lebbaeus. G. Sis. Simon and
Juda-.
Observe the following remarks as to the
sending of the Apostles in couples:
1. Those most unlike go together. This is
truest unity. One's defects are offset by
another's perfections. U' one be diffident tho
other is courageous. If one be impetuous
the other is moderate, careful. If one can
best speak the other can most effectively
act. (Ecc, 4 : 9, 10.)
2. We depend on each other. No one is
perfect, complete.
3. There is a place for every man in the
Church.
4. God sets the members of the body over
against each other as it pleases him.
5. It is well to cousult the social nature.
Men can work best if not alone, desolate.
They need to comfort and encourage each
other.
G. Sending two by two is indicative of tho
sympathetic feelings of clergymen among
themselves.
7. Two could be witnesses. What was
done would bo known by both, and they
could support each other'8 statements.
8. There would be less liability of scandal
when one was always accompanied by
another.
9. The 70 were also sent out two by two,
showing our Savior considered such grouping
important bt Luke, 10:1.
10. We notice a similar conpling of leading
men in the Biblejecords: .Moses and Aaron,
Elijah and Ehsha, Bezaleel and Aholiab,
Zerubbabel and Jehoshua, Caleb and Joshua,
Sts. Paul aud Barnabas, Sts. Paul and Silas,
Sts. Barnabas and Mark (John); Rev.,
11:3.
11. Rev. Dr. Atkinson, of Oregon, wrote
some time ago an important communication
to tho Congrcgationalist favoring colleaugue
pastorates, aud his arguments are worthy
of study.
12. We observe that many of the historic
workers famous in histo adopted the plan
of colabor: Augustine and Alypius, Basil
and Gregory Nazianzum, Bernard of Clair
vaux and Gerard, Weslev and Fletcher.
13. Revivalists show this same tendency:
Messrs. Moody and Sankey, Whittle and
Bliss, Needham and Johnston, Hammond and
Bentley, Gra?es and Hillmau, Taggart and
Prof. Johnston, etc.

Trirnue Oct 20, 1887.

JI. W., Napn, Cal. 1. In framing the Constitution
of the Uuiied Slates, did the Coloniea do so with
tho tiudcritnudiuc; that any State could withdraw
from the Union nhould it desire to? -. How many
Union soldiers were killed, wounded and died of
disease during tho late war, and how many rebel.i?
3. How many of tho Southern sympathizers wero
disfranchised, and who were they? 4. Where can
1 i;et a copy of tho McKinlcy law and of the Wil
son law? AnMioer. J. No; there wus no hint of
any provision whatever for the dissolution of the
Union. At tho outbreak of the Into war the rebels
claimed the rirht to withdraw from the compactor
partnership of the Union, but the people contended
very strongly that it was preposterous to assume
that such could be the case, and held that a Na
tion could not commit suicide. 2. Of the Union
forces 61. 3G-- wero killed during the war, 31,773 died
of wounds and 1S3.287 died of disease. As to tho
Confederate looses the data are very vngue: esti
mates vary from about 133.000 to 300.000. We in
vito attention to a most excellent articlo on this
subject in our insuo of Oct. 23, from the pen of Capt.
Win. E. Doyle. The tijrures are of the very vaguest
chiiritcler. as tho rebels did not mako any attempt
to keep an accurate record of the matter. 3. We
cannot state the number, but in the President's
proclamation of amnesty of May 29.1S65, 11 classes
were ozcepted; viz., all pretended civil or diplo
matic officers, etc., of the pretended Confederate
Government; all who left judicial stations under
the United States to aid the rebellion ; all Confed
erate military or uavul officers above the rank of
Colonel in tho nrmy or Lieutenant in the unvy;
all who left scats iu the Congress of the United
Statos to aid the rebellion ; till who resigned com
missions iu the Army or Navy of the United States
to erndo duty In resisting the rebellion; all who
maltreated Union prisoners of war; nil who ab
sented themselves from the United States for the
purpose of aiding tho rebellion; all rebel officers
educated at West Point and Annapolis Academies;
nil holding ofllco of Governors in the States in
rebellion, and a few other classes. Provision was
mnde by which clemency was liberally extended
to theso excepted classes upon application for par
don, etc. 4. Writo to tho Government Printing

Jf. Jf., liraiilwood. III. I have been informed
thill an act of Congress approved June 27. 1890, pro
vides that a widow can he pensioned if her hus
band has been koko.sovoii years, even if she cannot
prove the fact and date of his death. Is this the
law? Answer. There is no statutory law on the
subject, but during tho Administration of Gen.
Rim in itwas the custom in ueltlinga widow's claim
for pension under the act of June 27. 1S90. to. in tho
absence of better evidence, presume that the hus
band was dead if there was an unheard-of absence
of seven years or more, aud, if other requirements
wero met, lo allow the claim.
B. MIJL, Sandwich, Hass. Did the bill providlnjr
Unit tho reports of "Examining Surgeons should bo
open to the inspection of the claimant and Ills at
torney become n law? Answer. Yes; after tho ro
port is filed iu the Pension Burotiu it can bo ex
amined by the clnimant or his attorney. This
privilege amounts to little, asExamining Surgeons
are forbidden to rate, so Hint the report will only
show a description of the disabilities.
M. A. JL, Ecansvillc, Ind, How many rebel sol
diers joined the Union army, and nre they now
pensionable under the new law? Answer. About
10,000; they formed tho six regiments known as
the 1st, 2d, 3d, 1th. 5th, and Cth U.S. Vols. They are
not now pensionable under tho act of June 27, 1890,
the present Assistant Secretary of the Interior
holding that their servico in tho Confederate army
destroys title to pension under tlie new law, though
not under the old law.
O. E. T., East Templelon, Mass. Please state the
qualifications for admission to the West Point Mili
tary Academy, aud how appointments thereto are
obtained? Anstvcr. Tho Cadets at West Point
Military Academy uro appointed by tho President
ono year in advance, tho number being ono for
ouch Congressional District, one from each Terri
tory and tlio District of Columbia, and 10 from the
United Slates-at-hirge. All but the appointments-nt-largo
must bo actunl residents of the district
from which they nre appointed. Tho nomination
of theso appointed from the Congressional Districts
is left to the Representative of such district in Con
gress, and it has been the custom for them to make
the appointments upon the results of u competitive
examination open to all of tho eligible residents of
their districts. Aa each Congressional District Is
entitled to ono Cadet, anil tho courso embraces
four years, it follows that unless a vacancy occurs
by death, resignation or expulsion there will bo
but one nppointment every four years upon gradua
tion. Tho appointee must be between 17 and 22
years of age, well vorsed in reading, writing and
arithmetic, nnd have some knowledge of English
grammar, descriptive geography and tho history
of tho United Stales, and must pass a satisfactory
physical examination.

OUR RURiJL TOPICS,
Some
Practical Suggestions for Our
Agricultural Readers.
Tito Kansas State Board of Agriculture
has for some time been collecting informa
tion relative to wheat feeding in that Slnte,
nnd has just issued a bulletin showing the
result of its work. In a general way tho
report shows:
In Kansa3, under the conditions a3 to
product and prices of wheat and corn exist
ing in the years 1S93, '91, 95, wheat hn3
become a very important factor in tho grain
feeding of all classes of farm stock.
It is superior to corn, pound for pound, as
a grain to produce a healthful, well-balanced
growth in yonng animals.
Mixed with corn, oats, or bran, it is much
superior to either alone for work horses.
Fed to cows, it is an exceptional milk pro
ducer, and for that purpose com is scarcely
to be compared with it.
For swine of all age3 it ig a healthful and
agreeable food, giving generous returns in
both framework and flesh; but fed whole,
especially without soaking, is used at a dis
advantage. Ground and made into slops, it
is invaluable for suckling sows and for pig3
both before and after weaning.
For cattle it has, at least as a part of their
grain ration, a very high-value, which is
much enhanced in the line of needed variety
by mixing with corn, and in a still greater
degree by mixing judiciously with bran, oil
cake, or other albuminous foods tending to
uiuaucc mo too carbonaceous nature of the
clear wheat.
With corn and wheat approximating the
same price per bushel, it is not unprofitable
nor wicked to feed the wheat; yet, if it can
be ground, rolled, crushed or in some -way
broken at a total cost not exceeding five to
seven cents per bushel, to feed it whole and
dry is unwise.
It can bo ground at a cost of live cents per
bushel, and on a majority of Kansas farms
for very much less.
If grinding is impracticable, soaking from
24 to 36 hours (the length of time depending
somewhat upon the weather and season) isj
jor vanons reasons, deemed desirable, but is
iujndicious to any extent that its being
moist facilitates swallowing without the
mastication or the proper mixing with
saliva. Any arrangement or system of
feeding by which the grain was delivered
in such a way that the animal could eat but
slowly would largely overcome this defect
It is a superior food for all fowls, and a3 a
promoter of the maximum egg-production
is unsurpassed by any other grain.
Yonng Orchards.
Many cnl ti vators, after taking creat trouble
and expense in the selection and planting of
trees, fail of succes3 by neglecting that after
care and attention which is equally impor
tant. Frequent cultivation is essential to
the growth of all young trees. When trees
are planted in fields of grass they should be
heavily mulched with coarae manures for
several seasons.
Cream Separators.
In the first place, the separator saves a
considerable amonnt of time, for by its use
one can have cream and skim-milk in a fevr
minutes after milking. This is of great ad
vantage to those telling milk, for both cream
and skim-milk will be salable for a much
longer time. Then, again, it saves labor and
room. A good working separator tikes prac
tically all the cream out of the milk. It has
been proved that considerably more bntter is
produced from a given quantity of milk when
treated in thi3 way, as against the ordinary
setting methods. There areseveral makers
of these machines, and they can be had for
working by hand, horse, water, or steam
power, all constructed on much the same
principles; and with each, successful separa
tion depends mostly upon the temperature,
speed, and the regulation of the inflow of
milk.
Care of Capons.
Capons need, no more care than other
poultry do. Feed them all they want to
eat, and keep their quarters clean. Simply
treat them as you would any growing chick
ens, and the capon's growth will be surpris
ing. The xapid growth of capons for the
first few months is remarkable and very in
teresting. A New York poultry raiser
wrote that his capon3 gained three pounds
each in six weeks. Of course, the first
growth is principally bone and framework.
When this is developed they then take on
flesh and fat. I find it about a3 well to feed
corn alone in Winter, with bone and shell
before them all the time. They are not
great eaters, as, being quiet, all they eat
goes to form flesh and fat. Only feed what
they will eat, and you will soon have some
10 pound capons to sell.
Station Bulletins.
At the "Utah Experiment Station a series
of feeding experiments with wheat, bran,
peas, com, and barley, seem to point to the
fact that wheat is a very economical grain
for feeding to pigs. In bulletin 34 of the
station it is reported that four pens of three
pig3 each were fed continuously for five
months the following rations respectively:
wheat and bran, peas and bran, corn and
bran, and barley and bran. Each ration
consisted of one-half bran. Counting pork
worth $4 per hundred pounds live weight,
and bran at $10 per ton, "the following prices
were realized for the different grains when
converted into pork: wheat, $0,894; peas,
1.02; corn, $0,704; and barley, $0.59.
With wheat selling at 69 cents per bushel
it is most economical to feed it to pig3, and
this demonstration may lead to the mora
universal feeding of this grain to animals.
Bulletin 23 of the Arkansas Station ad
vises the sowing of rye for green Winter
feeding, and reports that at the station over
40,000 pounds of green rye were cut in the
four-cuttings of January 5, March 10, April
10, and April 23. But this would not apply,
to a colder latitude, although the following
from the same bulletin as to the value of
rye feeding would: The value of rye as
green Winter food for all live stock is ap
