Should All Farmers Join the Alliance.
The answer, "yes," by all well-in

An individual farmer as compared to
the whole number is like a glassof water
to the quiet running stream, but, when
driven by necessity to assert their
rights, they should rise en masse, sweep
down the mountain of oppression, mak
ing the memorable day of November 4th
last past appear as but an April shower
as compared to ihe deluge awaiting the
combined oppression upon this all im
portant factor in our land.
It is unfortunate for the farmer that
in his honest effort to throw off the
galiing yoke, he is compelled to deal
with (as one of the essentials) the polit
■ical question, for in so doing he is con
fronted with strong opposition and ridi
cule by journals differing from him,
hoping thereby to convince him that
warty fealty is paramount to home pro
tection. It can be often said and to the
credit of the same newspapers,) that
■they encourage the defeat of objection
-able candidates in local affairs, but local
>government does not reach the import
ance of the farmer's needs. This, there
fore, is one of the pivotal points at
which the alliance will rise or
fiall. Farmer, be honest with yourself.
First. Have you a just cause for
complaint? If so, then do you believe
that party fealty should supersede a
■duty you owe to your family? If not,
ithen liew to the line, let the chips fall
•where they will. As ignorant as you
are made to appear, no one knows better
than you, that with all your past loyalty
to party, with toils and privations, you
can safely say that for the past quarter
of a century the only noticeable increase
on the farm is the mortgage and inter
est, while the products from hard labor
and economy have shrunk in value be
low the cost of production.
Can you boast of many of your num
ber having made on the farm within a
iew brief years from ten to one hundred
million dollars? No, not one ; and why?
Because, while you toiled for the neces
saries of life, your truant representatives
in high places have forsaken their trust,
and proven false to you, they have
joined the combine against you, and are
today absorbing your vitals.
A farmer wishes to sell bis carload of
"Cattfa. The syndicates representing
thirty millions of dollars, with head
quarters at Chicago and New York, fix
tiie price. A second farmer has grain to
i seli. The grain gambler dealing in op
tions, arranges the price. Another has
tietton and wool for sale, and Mr. Wana
maker, the millionaire in the cabinet,
aifd others of| his kind, holding within
their grasp a sliding scale on tariff, es
tablish your prices.
Mr. Spreckels and other monopoly
powers tix the price on sugar. The
miner risks his life in the bowels of the
mountains for the precious metal, and
the national bank, with the Wall-
Htreet fiend, dictate to your representa
tive what value to put on it. Then all
these farmers have to ship their pro
ducts, and tiie dear good United States
■eenator (for whom the government built
a railroad across the continent, and
.made him a present pf it, provided he
would manage it) says to you that the
total sale of your products, above the
• bare cost of production, must be confis
cated-as freight, in order that he and
Mr. Gould may realize a satisfactory
dividend on highly watered stock. Is it
not plain (as reported) why such phil
anthropic financiers would show such
unstinted liberality, at times when
"United States "enators are elected, to
drop the small st in of three-quarters of
a million in the hands of politicians, for

judges ? »
Farmers! who are you and what are
you, you poor, little, insignificant pig
mies. Don't you see "you are not in
the swim" and that you are on the high
way to the poorhouse, or will you wake
up to realize the fact that "you are tbe
salt of the earth"—that you are to this
nation what the fuel is to the locomo
tive? We could readily spare from our
midst the many leeches that are sucking
the life blood from your veins; but to
stop the farm would soon raise a starv
ing cry, pitiful indeed. If, then, you
are tbe corner stone upon which "our
safety rests, assert your rights in a
calm but decided way. You can learn a
lesson from the experience of the tem
perance people; that is, should you
place a third ticket in the national field
of politics you will individually assist in
electing a ticket you least desire. You
can also learn an important lesson from
the expert ward politician well worth
adopting: Strengthen your forces, attend
the local caucus and primaries, secure
such delegates to conventions within the
lines of the two great political parties
only ; then nominate and elect men of
honor and integrity, who will sit as just
men in the councils of the nation, deal
ing out equal justice to rich and poor,
remindful of the fast that the producers
from the soil have rights that must and
shall be protected.

He Finds Encouraging Prospects in
Los Angeles District.
In Expert Dowlen's report for Novem
ber, he reviews the condition of the
vines in all the counties of the Los An
geles district, and. finds *tbe outlook
quite encouraging. So much so that
many of the vineyardists in the worst
infected sections are proposing to replant
their devastated vineyards. Follow ing is
the full text of the report:.
Since the last report a number of jour
neys have been made to the vineyards
in the neighboring counties of San Luis
Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura and
Orange, all of which are included in the
bos Angeles district.
In San Luis Obispo county viticulture
can only be reckoned as "one of the
smaller industries, though it is very
probable that this proportion will be
altered considerably in tin- course of the
next two or three years. The gieater
number of vineyards are small, and vine
yardists have hitherto been discour
aged by the low prices obtainable for
both fruit and wine. In addition to this
the means of transit by rail are limited,
but it is probable that this will he reme
died in the near future. The varieties
generally grown are the Mission.Zinfan
del and Muscat. Everywhere the vines
seemed to be particularly healthy, there
being an abundance of wood and fol
iage, and where the fruit had not been
picked, a full crop of grapes of good
quality. The vines were almost entirely
tree from disease of any kind. Mildew
was reported as not giving much trouble.
With respect to the Anaheim disease, a
few vines were noticed which showed
some signs of the peculiarly marked
foliage.* Except for this, the vines were
apparently in perfect health ; but own
ers reported that similar features had j
i always been noticed upon the vines, in j
| some years hardly showing at all, in
I others appearing to a greater extent, but
i never doing any damage. In thiscounty !
| the vines had not sutl'ered from beat
'as they bad further south. In view of
the approaching increased facilities for
■ transport, many people were preparing |
to set out vines in the coming year; and I
'in all probability there will be within j
! the next two years a great increase in I
I the acreage devoted to viticulture, for
the practice of which large areas are
apparently well adapted.
In Santa Barbara county, a compara
tively small amsunt of attention appears
to be given to viticulture. Here also,
lew prices and limited means of trans
port have operated tj check the in
dustry; moreover, where the vineyards
are within reach of the sea air, as is the
case with many of the older vineyards, I
the fruit produced cannot compete in
quality with that raised in more inland
districts. The vines, even where they j
have been auite neglected, had made a j
j vigorous growth, and had borne a good
crop. No signs of the Anaheim disease j
were seen; mildew was reported, and in
the vineyards near the coast, ihe foliage j
was much spotted with the ordinary
grape leaf blight. Further inland the
grapes were in better condition, both
foliage and canes being much cleaner
In Ventura county viticulture takes a
| more prominent position, though it has
:by no means received the same amount
of attention as other industries. In the
Ojai valley the larger and older vine
yards are found in the upper valley,
j The vines were in excellent health, aiid
had borne a large crop of
fruit. The varieties mostly planted
are the Mission, Zinfandel, Black Prince,
with Binaller lots of Mataro and Trous- j
! seau. In one vineyard a number of |
other varieties of wine grapes are being
experimented with. There are also a
number of smaller lots of table grapes,
Black Morocco, Black Prince and Te
; lame Tokay. In the lower part of the
Ojai valley the vines are mostly young,
the .Muscat being the variety chiefly
At Bespe and the neighborhood the
j vines are chiefly of the Muscat variety,
j the fruit being of very fine quality. At
| present it is sold both for table use and
,as raisins. The vines throughout the
i county were in excellent condition, and
'in all places a good crop was produced.
1 Mildew was the only disease reported;
no signs of the Anaheim disease were
! In each of the above three counties
the intention was generally expressed
!of making considerable plantings of
vines during, the coining year, raisin
! grapes receiving more attention than
j wine grapes.
In Orange county the districts around
Santa Ana. Anaheim and Orange have
been visited. Here too, there is an im
j provement in the condition of the vines.
Here and there may be found vines
1 which have lived through all the attacks
|of the Anaheim disease.. In one vine
j yard some seventy acres of vines have
! been saved. These do not show so
I much disease as they did last year, and
in addition, they yield this year a large
j crop of fruit of good quality, both of
raisin and wine grapes. Another in
stance of suivival is where a number of
\ vines of eastern varieties bad been
trained to form an arbor. These vines
l became diseased and by the end of the
I summer of last year they seemed to be
, almost dead, having produced but a
small amount of grow th and no fruit.
| The owner, however, did not like to cut
them down, and was rewarded this year
jby seeing his vines again putting put
good growth and producing fruit,- the
vines now showing little if any disease.'
In some placea new vineyards have
been set out. Most of these are of small
area, though on one property fifty-six
acres have been set out. The oldest of
these new vines are three years of age;
the youngest were set out this year.
Nearly all of these new vines are Muscat.
Besides these, a few Mission vines have
been planted. The older vines show, in
places, a little disease, but by far the
greater proportion of those set out this
year show no disease. Some plots are
entirely free; they are apparently in
good health, having made a lair amount
of growth, and the canes have ripened
properly. In common with all vines of
this section, they bliow the effects of the
extra heat and dryness of the past sea
son, and they have also sutl'ered from
the effects of a hot wind storm which
visited this locality a few weeks since.
From the above statements it will be
seen that in Orange county the Anaheim
disease is evidently not so virulent as in
past years, and tbat, though the trouble
has by no means passed away, the out
look for viticulture is much more hope
ful than it was twelve months ago, and
also that there is as yet no reason for
altering the opinion expressed in the
earlier reports of this year, that there
has been an improvement in the condi
tion of the vines throughout the infected
areas. The improvement is such that
in Orange county, where the Anaheim
disease has done most damage, and
where, in consequence, the greatest pre
caution would be exercised, ttfany people
are looking forward to again Betting out
vines during the coming season.
December I. 1800,
Saw Mli> Shadow in n Fog Rank.
A singula! natural phenomenon is re
ported by Superintendent Lincoln, of
the Rumford Falls and Buckfield rail
road. One foggy morning he was walk
ing up a hill on the east side of Lake
Anasagunticook. As he neared the sum
mit he came into clear atmosphere, and
could look upon a sea of vapor as it lay
over the lake and valleys, with now and
then a mountain top rising above the
general level. The sun was just rising
and, as is usual under such conditions, a
rainbow was seen in the fog.
But what attracted Mr. Lincoln's at
tention particularly was the presence of
a bright spot in the center of the circle
particularly described by the rainbow.
This was so luminous that at first Mr.
Lincoln thought it might be farm build
ings on fire some distance away in the
fog. This supposition was soon dispelled
by further developments.
The bright central spot was surrounded
by circles of radiating light composed of
the many hues of the rainbow, forming
a beautiful halo. Passing along Mr.
Lincoln noticed a dark spot on the sur
face of the sun's reflection, and was some
what startled to discover that it moved
across the circle in the direction he was
walking. Returning to the point where
the shadow came in the center of the il
luminated circle he began movements of
the arms, and found that they were dis
tinctly imitated by the shadow which
appeared in the bank of fog a mile away.
As the sun rose higher the reflection sank
lower, and was finally lost in the waters
of the placid lake.—Canton Telephone.

While the columns of the Graphic are
open to any and all unobjectionable ad
vertisements, yet it is quite impossible
for us to speak know ingly of the merits
of the various articles of merchandise
advertised. Particularly is this true of
patent medicines. But there are excep
tions occasionally, and a noteworthy
exception is tbe celebrated Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. This now uni
versally known medicine has been adver
tised in the Graphic for four or rive
years, but not until recently had we
any personal knowledge of its wonderful
efficacy, which has come about through
the prevailing influenza and the stub
born cough tbat has so often attended
it. In the writer's family this medicine
has on several occasions this winter
cured a cough that battled any and all
other remedies; and the numberof fam
ilies in Kimball and vicinity in which
this remedy has been used with like
effects, attests to its value as a specific
lor coughs and colds of every nature.
