More than 4,600 bills, mostly of a pri

their gullible constituents.
The terrible floods now devastating
the river volleys below, are attributed
in a great measure to cutting down the
forests adjaoent to the river banks.
There is no difference of opinion on

America, either from a misconception of its
capacities, the true method of its development
or climatio catastrophe, refuses to' respond to
the toil of the husbandmen, every b'urnished
spindle must cease to hum every hammer

of oommerce will mildew, on the Bhore's of

President W. D. Hoard- of Fort Atkinson,'
Wis., enUvered his annual address.
The address begins with a reference to-the
growing importance of agriculture and the
wondrous progress made therein oflate.-The
demand of the times is imporativefor larger

the mind as'well as the handin aigricultarS

Baid The season of 18© has proved a.'fairly
prosperous one for dairymen. Through the
extension of the gathered cream srstem.'.'very
many new communities are brought into line
and the milk of thousands of cows rescnedfrom
an ignominious fate. There is a large class of
fanners that view all this with' alarm. -1 They
have been waiting ten years for the dairy bus
iness to fail.. They have been fearfnlaU/ the
time that the business would be ovGidone for-

management would no doubt increase the. pro
fitableness of every cow brought under such
an influence. It is about time the honest milk
was rescued "from the Pogram makers
and Bascom vendors at crossroads,
and for. the. profit, of. the
country given a fair showfor whatthereisin

slovenliness enough in the landfor along time
to'give intelligence all the

It is a curious and instructive fact'aa shown
by the last census, that the ratio increase in
cows is considerably less tiian that of popula
tion. This may account in a measure for the
'fact that the demand- for dairy products has
been for a number/of years greater than the
supply. The same fact affords also a good
guarantee of the future stability of business,
providing that bogus compounds are not al
lowed to usurp the place of the.honest product
of the cow.. Left to a natural condition of
things the dairyman need have no fedrs Of the
lack.of a remunerative market'in the future.
He should remember, however, that if he al
lows himself to be dnven from the field, either
thraugh his supineneas, or l^ck of. conformity
to the market demand for excellence, he doos

A general survey of the question discl&sos

E. Hoard ox Montevideo, Minn., in a paper
on skim milk, farming, compared .wheal and
duty,farming. Showed the cost of raising
•whei^t in upper Mississippi valley, and stated
that in ins county about 600,000 bushels of
wheat are'raised annually, bringing in Chicago
about $500,000. It costs $150j0Db to send tins
Wheat to market, leavingjabout $100 net pro
ceeds to each farmer.- The speaker felt sure
the Jesuit would be much better if farmers
would turn their attention to dairying instead.
O. P. Dexter of Chicago followed with a paper
on "Organizations, for the Promotion of Special
Objecta-withspecial reference.to organizations
of th&dauy interest.
Vice Preaident P. A. JfcKinstry of Winneba
^o.Cit^ Minn.,^ read a paper entitled "Shortage
mthe Creamery, Gathering System.n
By the term of shortage, as used by creamery
men, we mean that in buying a certain-quality
of cream, which.has been supposed to make a
given quantity of butter, ana it fails to do so,
we say we are short on butter: or, in other
words,.we bought cream enough .to make so
many pounds of butter, according to the stand
ard rules,' and 'it failed' to -make it
•He .. said .the shortage
reported in Iowa for the year 1883 was 4 per

afailure in MinneBota.:
W. B. Straight did not wish the idea to go
abroad that the shrinkage was duo to aifferenoe
in cream instead of the. amount of milk turned'
into cream. Mr. JohnBon of IUinbiB'asked for

farmers of Wisconsin under ihe wheat raising
system with that they now enjoy in the busi
ness of dairying. Tho dairying is a more cer

light, and extends through the entire year, in

in regard to the construction of tiie act of
March 8,1883, relative to the readjustment of
postmasters', salariea He holds that. in all

adjustment of Bahanes of postmaaters of .the
thud, fodrth or fifth olask,' that' they' received
10 'per cent or more, less than they would have
received in commissions nuder the act of 1854,
they are entitled under the actof March 18o3,
to the difference between what was paid' them
and what they would have received as commis
sions under the act of 1854. Ho also holdsthat
it was not the intention of congress, by the acts
of 1864 and 1866, to dispense with biennial re
adjustmenta -It follows, .that the claimant
