v?#i^*^i-5 ^^^f-^TF^W^^^^^l^^g^l^i^^^ff THE WILD PEA Its "Value in Protein as Compared with Other Leguiaes. D. A. Wallace of Wallace's Farmer, who owns a farm near Mora, has been making some interesting experiments with the wild pea that grows so lux urantly in the cut-over country of northern Minnesota. In an article in Farm, Stock and Home, Mr. Wallace says: "Cattle and horses display the greatest avidity and greediness for the green, succulent vines. They go through the brush beating paths and picking up everj straj vine, leaving good tame grass pasture to do so. ''Made into haj the peas seem equallj palatable and nutritious, and I have been told that all kinds of stock will leave the very best tame hay to pick up the dry pea vines. Prof. P. G. Holden, \ice dean and agronomist on the Iowa Agricultural College, while on a short visit at our home this summer, commented \ery fa\orable on the seeming value of the wild peas and beans as pasture, and expressed the opinion that the large varietj of pea was probably a lathj rus, a vetch probablv vici americana. Taking v\ ith him some of the pea hay he kmdlj furnished the following an alysis. Unfortunately the wild beans at that time were not far enough ad \anced in growth for analysis. I quote the protein determination and comparison with analj sis of other leguminous crops.

The analysis of cow-peas and soy beans seems quite similar to that of the wild pea. 'It seems to me that plants of the evident value of these wild peas and beans should have a permanent place in agricultural operation, providing they will stand civilizing. I am looking for information and have only the locality here to judge from, I would like to know if the ex perience of others adds to or contra dicts anjthing I ha\e stated." A WARM NOVEMBER. Fir st Eighteen Days of this November Break Record for Agreeable Weather. The first eighteen days of Novem ber this year havp been warmer in Minnesota than any corresponding period in the past fourteen years, for which records are available at the local weather bureau. The lowest temperature reached this year between Nov. 1 and 18, inclusive, was 24 de grees. In all former years a lower minimum temperature was touched. The records show that from Nov. 1 to 18, 1891, there were six days on which the temperature was lower than 24 degrees, the lowest this year. For the same period 1892 eight days were colder: in 1893, the number was four: 1894, it was seven: in 1895,people three, in 1896, eight 1897, four in 1898, three: in 1899, one: in 1900,ably eight: in 1901, ten in 1902. one: and last jear, four. The minimum temperatures reached from Nov. 1 to 18, inclusive, during the past fourteen ears, are as fol lows. In 1891, four degrees below zero on the 18th: in 1892, nine degrees on the 8th: in 1893, ten daegrees on the 18th in 1894, six degrees on the 18th in 1895, eleven degrees on the loth: in 1896, seven degrees on the 14th in 1897, fifteen degrees on the 16th in 1898.. nineteen dergees on the' 10th in 1899, twenty-three degrees on the 17th in 1900, eight degrees on the 15th in 1901, twelve degrees on the 17th: in 1902, twenty-one degrees on the 10th: last year, four degrees on the 18th and this year, twenty-four degrees on the 11th. In point of maximum temperatures the weather bureau records show that there were two warmer days in form er years. This year the highest tem perature reached between Nov. 1 and 18, inclusive, was sixty-nine degrees on the 3d. In 1893 the mercury touched seventy-three degrees on the 6th, and in 1897 the thermometer regis tered seventy degrees on the 3d. For the past eighteen days the im mediate northwest in the vicinity of Minneapolis has been treated by the weather men, or, as they modestly prefer to have it expressed, by nature or the elements, with special consid eration. In other parts of the coun try warm weather phenomena has not been especially startling. While the people of Minnesota were enjoying temperatures in the neigh borhood of sixty-nine degrees last week, the New Englanders living at Northfield, Vt., were working off the effects of two degrees below zero weather. This temperature was theters first zero weather in the United States this fall, a distinction that helped somewhat the feelings of the North field people.Minneapolis Times. Potato Growing. The Weekly Chronicle of San Fran cisco tells of a Chinaman who pays $5,340 rent, or $12 per acre for 445 mm acres of land upon Robert Island, for the purpose of growing potatoes. Allie samee Melican man" with capital and brians 'he does not do much labor himself, but employs some sixty or seventy of his country men to do the work for him. It'is estimated that he will make $30,000 profit this year above all expenses. There are five Chinese companies and five Italians growing potatoes on this Island, and they are each ex pected to make immense profits this ear. Altogether they cultivate about three thousand acres of pota toes. And yet the Chronicle says that the potatoes from this island are not considered equal in quality to those grown in some other sections which are, perhaps, less productive. Vicks' Magazine. lN'DIiN SIMMER. Caused "Aerial Oulf Stream" Gene rated in Tropical Seas. In an interesting article on ''Indian Summer," which we are now enjoying, the Scientific American says: This period annually beautifies the /ione running through New England and Canada westward to Lakes Mich igan and Superior, thence southwest ward to Kansas and Nebraska and, including Minnesota, the Dakotas, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Washing ton, Oregon and Northern California, northwestward over British America to the Arctic Circle. While it does not extend into the lower limits of the United States it is referred to by two or three of the historians of Mexico. 'Formerly the smokiness and the somewhat greater degree of warmth were thought to be caused by moun tain fire for the burning of the vege table decidua collected in the autumn for that purpose. The haze and in creased warmth are due to the annual formation of what has been termed the "aerial Gulf Stream or'"vapor plane." This high current gener ated equatorial seas by ascending masses of vapor-charged air flows north ward through the upper atmos phere oversweeps the southern and gulf states and descends toward the earth or ocean as it approaches New England and Canada on its journey toward the polar circle. In the after noon and night when the earth throws off the heat received during the day especially in the autumn weeks when the temperatures is declining and the capacity of the air to retain moisture is on the decrease the presence of this mantle of vapor arrests radiation. The heat absorbing power of this "blanket of aqueous vapor" has been clearly demonstrated by Prof. Tyn dall. Covering the remaining vegeta tion and the harvests as with a shield it protracts the grain-ripening period to meet the necessities of the higher latitudes." PARSING O THE HOME. Gloomy 1 lew of the Development of Mod ern City T.lfe. The passing of the home is the saddest phenomenon of modern city life. The tenement housewhich we seek to disguise under the name of "flat"is a most wretched substitute for the humblest of homes. That our endure them is an indication of degeneracy, as it will unquestion be the cause of a more rapid descent. It is morally certain that the vigor of the race can be main tained only by personal contact with the mother earth from which we sprang, which nourishes and sustains us while we live and which receives us to her bosom when we die. Why this is perhaps no one knows, but it is within the knowledge or all that the vigor of the city is constantly re cruited from country life. To deprive children of daily contact with the soil is a sin. The evil of the tenement house was not realized until it passed from the slums, because few of us know how the other half lives. It is perhaps not so desperate a misfortune to those who live by manual labor, for ithey get their contact with earth in other ways, and their children, less vexed by the conventions of society, and access to the soil by some means and pass, .while still young, to the occupa tions of their parents. The most terrible effect of the tenement house is in the families of the "salaried" class as distinguished from the "wage-earners," and who flit from flat to flat, seldom remaining long enough anywhere for home associa tions to be formed. There can per haps be no home associations worthy of the name which are not connected with a piece of open ground in the sole possession of the family. It would seem that in our largest cities this privilege can no longer be en joyed except by the rich.San Fran cisco Chronicle. Not a Sick Day Since. "Was taken severely sick with kid ney trouble. I tried all sorts of medi cines, none of which relieved me. One day I saw an ad. of your Electric Bit and determined to try that. Af ter taking a few doses I felt relieved, and soon thereafter was entirely cured, and have not seen a sick day since.

Brown of the State supreme court, affirms the judgment of the Anoka county court in convicting Daniel Peebles, a town ship officer of Blaine, in that county. A writ of quo warranto issued by the supreme court some weeks ago is re turnable Nov. 23, and the adverse de cision of the court, it is said, will re sult in ousting Peebles from the office of township supervisor, which he now holds. Peebles was convicted of presenting a fraudulent claim against the town ship as a public officer. He was charged with having, as chairman of the town board, caused the issuance of two certain orders, aggregating $80.75, in favor of a third party, for work done on highways in excess of the amount appropriated for the work which he superintended. The orders were cashed through a bank and the money turned over to the beneficiaries. The district court found Peebles guilty and fined him $200. He appealed and pending the appeal he was re-elected. Then the attorney general permitted the use of his name to a writ of quo warranto by which it was attempted to oust Peebles from office. He pleaded his appeal as a bar to the latter pro ceeding, but with the affirmation of the lower court his defense seems to have crumbled away. The supreme court in affirming the lower court, holds that the ofiense complained of constituted presenting a false and fraudulent claim against the county. Found His Folks." Joel Chandler Harris recently told friends of the experience of an old southern darky who went to Philadel phia where he thought he might better his fortune. After a week of walking up and down the old chap found himself forced to solicit charity. This he did by going from house to house. "Ef you please" he would begin when his ring had been answered "give a po'culud man some work to do or sumthin' to eat." The reply was invariably: "Very sorry but we have nothing for you."there Finally the old man rang the bell of a prosperous-looking house and a man, evidently the master thereof, came to the door. "Boss" appealed the aged darkey "I'se starvin' can't yo' give me some vittles?" At this the man at the door gave evidence of great rage. "You darn black kinky-haired rascal!" shouted he. "How dare you ring the bell at my front door? Go in at the back, and the cook will give you something you dingy-faced" But here the old darky interrupted the man by falling on his knees and exclaiming in heartfelt tones: "Thank Gawd, I'se foun' my ownaffords people at las'! Thank Gawd. I done foun' my own white folks!"Cleve land Leader. A Green Wo rm in Cabbage. A Spirit Lake, Iowa, paper has the following to say that may be of inter est to cabbage consumers: "It would be well for the people to examine closely all cabbage before cooking it this fall. Many heads of cabbage are said to contain a small green snake, about the size of a hair and almost invisible. Charley Newton of Dick ens, found one of these green reptiles in a cabbage the other day. Persons eating the cabbage containing these worms are made very sick, and sev eral deaths have occurred in Iowa this fall as a result of eating cabbage containing these worms. The state authorities have taken the matter in hand, and as a protection to the peo ple have ordered the sauer kraut fac tories in the southern part of Iowa shut down. We also understand that the sale of kraut has been prohibited in Des Moines." The Retort Discourteous. The following conversation was said to have been overheard by an Osage citizen who recently visited in the Saintly City: An Irishman was sit ting in a smoker's seat in a street car in St. Paul the other day, when a woman sitting down remarked: "Sir. if you were a gentleman, you wouldn't smoke in here." "Mum," he said, "Ifyezwas a lady, ye'd go up in front." Pretty soon the woman burst out, "If you were my husband I'd give you poison." "Well, mum," re turned the Irishman as he puffed away at his pipe, "If yez was my woife I'd take it. "Exchange. Disastrous Wrecks.

"To bulldose" is to give a dose of bull (whip), a hiding, i. e., a (cow) hiding with a strip of untanned hide made into a whip. Hence, in politi cal slang, it has come to mean to coerce or intimidate, but not neces sarily with the use of violence. The word originated in Louisiana with the Union Rights leagues (negro), whose enthusiasm on the suffrage question led them to form oathbound societies, which scrutinized closely the politics of disaffected brethren, and if any nergo was found voting, or was sus pecting of an intention to vote the Democratic ticket, he was first warned and then flogged (bulldosed). The spelling of the original word has been changed to "bulldoze." New Corn is Scarce. A market report in the Commercial West says: "Not much new corn is on the market. In many communities not enough has been husked to supply local demands. Grain men believe will not be any large quantity of corn on sale for three months yet. The farmers have no surplus this year, and the only thing that makes it possible for the southwest to supply any corn at all for the outside demand this year is the large diminu tion in the amount of cattle feeding to be done. The cattemen are not ship ping in "feeders" this fall, because according to present conditions to feed them would be a dead loss." The Best Liniment. "Chamberlain's Pain Balm is con sidered the best liniment on the mar- ket," write Post & Bliss of Georgia, Vt. No other liniment will heal a cut or bruise so promptly. No other such quick relief from rheu matic pains. No other is so valuable for deep seated pains like lame back and pains in the chest.

The finding of a rare old census document of St. Louis county, for the year 1865, is a recent discovery in the office of the county treasurer. At that time the county had a population of 292 souls. It is likely one of the documents upon which J. Proctor Knott based his eulogistic address upon the Zenith city a few years later. Virginia Enterprise. Shot a Big: Moose.
