Correspond!rrg Secretary of th? Wernas*? National Democratlo League. r' The Women's National Democratic league, of which Mrs. Woodrow WU ?on and Mrs. Thomas R. Marshall, wives of the leading Democratic candi dates, are honorary president and honorary vice-president respectively, and Mrs. John S. Crosby ls president, has opened headquarters at 1123 Broadway, ?Kew York city, in charge o? the corresponding secretary, Mrs. Stephen B. Ayres, wife of Congressman Ayres of New York. The work being accomplished, dally by Mrs. Ayres and her corps of ste nographers and aids ls not for u?e campaign moment only, but foundation building for the future of Democracy. It is the first strictly woman's na -xlonal political movement to be organised In the United States and, as such, appeals to thinking women every where. *Tt has not declared for or against the .question of equal suffrage nor should lt be expected to do so any more than lt wouldjlscuss the questions af religion," said Mrs. Ayres from her post as "livj^rire" of the league. *"We are simply good Democrats banded together for tb9 greatest good to the greatest number* of American housewives, who today are required to pay more in this country for American gooda than they would have to pay for the same goods in a foreign land." She is especially interested ip the tariff on articles in constant feminine use and has d9velr"?ed into quite a speaker at the "housewives' " meetings of the tariff committee of the national Democratic committee. Otoo WILBUR D.NESBIT WILBUR D.NESBIT The rich man breathes the atmosphere tho same as you or I; He cannot see a deeper blue than we do In the sky; He hears the piplnsr of the birds-a music sweet and clear Bat maybe money clinking dulls the mu sic to his ear: And yet he has some pleasures that pos sess a tempting pulse But h" r in't die any deader than the poor man dies. The r'ch man piles the money till he gazes at the heap And trembles lest It totter, till he loses lots of sleep: The poor man tolls In factory, in office and In ditch. And worries over money, till he's sleep less like the rich; The moneyed man has pictures that ; escape the poor man's eyes But he can't die any deader than the poor i man dies. The rich man cannot eat moro than one meal at a time, 2?OT more than his ten pennies will ex ceed the poor man's dime; One suit of clothes ls all that may nt once ; his form adorn. He wore no more than poor men do the day that he was born; And he ls just a3 honest, and his false- | hoods are plain Hes And he can't die any deader than the poor man dies. There may be some philosophy Jn lifting np a moan Because the rich man rides the whilo the j poor man wall;3 alone: Because the rich rr.an ha? his go:- to buy his goodly cheer And yet there'll come a time Then he will have to leave lt here. OM Death's a spirit level that will brook no compromise, no one dies any deader than r.ext man die?. .._. Ho. it's I would be the vagabond When summer days are her'.-, To go and find what lies beyond The hills that are so near. To walk the winding road that leads Forever on and on And hear the wind dance through reeds The dancing wind of dawn. thc The walls of town they hedpe us In, They bind us foot and hand; Our davo must end as they begin, On one lone place wc stand And it'? I would be the rover then, To leave the town behind And trudge through meadowland and glen To see what I might find. There Is no bloom-srent In the dust That rises from the street; The blood within my veins ls rust, My heart slows in its beat Then lt's I would ho tho roving one Without a thought or caro. But walk or slT-p from sun to sun And know that Ufe is fair. A toil-sapped ?life the city pl ves Th:.t seems to have no end; The vagabond, in sooth, he lives And finds the world his friend So it's I would be the trudging tyke And foot it east or west. To stop and look at what I like And where I will, to rest. Ho. it's I would b? the vagabond These lazy summer days. To climb far hills and fare beyond Through all the pleasant ways, Amid the clover bloom to sleep Where life may show no Bears, To slumber where the soft winds creep And blanketed with stars! Why the Villain Protested. "Aha-a-a!" growled the Heavy VII lain, scowling savagely at the oot lights.

The service bull should be kept In a well-fenced grass pasture with a shed to go under In stormy weather during the grazing season. Give a mixed grain ration of wheat bran and ground oats. Give two or three quarts of grain night and morning. If grass ls short, an armful of cornfodder should be fed twice a day. The cow to be served may be turned into the lot with the bull; after service, give a small feed of bran and while bull ls eating, throw the stanchion lever, thus sparely fastening the bull; the cow jay then be removed without danger. -By having the Cows served so that part of the herd will come fresh in the fall and part in the spring, a reg ular quantity of milk may be had the year round, without the necessity of selling off half-fat cows at ruinous prices and buying in fresh cows at p.igh prices. When this method Is fol lowed", the dairyman ls always in debt to the cow dealer. The bull should be kept In good thrifty condition. A crosB bull may often be tamed by turning one or two dry cows into the lot. with him. Bulls should have dally exercise and be grain fed. If this ls not done, they may become impotent or slow In serving. The young bull should be kept in a separate pasture and not al lowed to run with the heifers. PLAN OF SATISFACTORY BARN Building With Cement Basement and Holding Twenty-Eight Cows ls De scribed and Illustrated. My barn has a cement basement, the walls being eight feet In the clear, ex cepting where the driveway goes through, writes W. J. Yarnall In the Breeders' Gazette. The side walls are 16 Inches at the bottom and 12 inches at the top. The end walls are 14 Inches at the bottom and the same at the top. The driveway goes through on the level of the ground or about four inches above the ground level. It all has a cement floor. The barn cost in Satisfactory Barn. all about $3,000. The cement base ment cost with the wall about $1,000 of this. The barn holds 28 cows, 14 cows on a side. It also holds eight horses. It has one box-stall, one double stall and four single stalls, and a harness room, Keeping Milk Sweet. One of our enterprising dairymen sent a bottle of milk to Paris at the time of the exposition. It made the Journey over and back, a trip of 28 days, and was still sw?et. There was no preservatives used, and the only precaution was to have the dishes and bottle perfectly sterile, cooling the milk at once and keeping lt all the I time at a low temperature. This seems I a good while to keep milk sweet, but ft shows what cleanliness and a low temperature can do with milk. DAIPY NOTE'S The baby calf should have her ra tions changed by degrees. Name the calves from the first and 'their training will be much easier. A calf should be fed five times I dalis, about three pints at each meal. One of the greatest mistakes in dairy farming is having too much land. No farmer can afford to have a cheap, inferior made silo on his farm. Regularity in feeding and milking [will go a long ways toward making [dairy work successful. After a cow begins giving new milk you will find that her udder is some times "caked." Rub it gently. A cold rain, fall or spring rain, will check the flow of milk as much a3 a snow storm if the cows are ex posed. Look out for the gentle bull. Remem ber that it ls not usually the roar ing, bellowing, blustering bull that dees the ki'ling. Do not feed the cows corn n.?al if (you are feeding corn silage, for there is as much corn in the silage aa tho cows should have. Butter l'rom fresh and properly ripened cream not over one day old [keeps better than does butter made [from sweet cream. A sore teat (remember the sore may be inside) will cause a cow to kick, but if handled gently she will not take on the kicking habit. The heifer that is cared for and han dled gently throughout her entire life will need a little breaking in when lt comes time to milk her. The long, flat-bottomed udder of the Ayrshire ls typical of the breed, and no other breed is able to show such wonderful development of the fore ud > .<-- ' W)?mmm [oraotJ ix m s SJ IVs not the clothes that makes the man, t's the man that makes the clothes to it, at prices to suit the pocket.
