Followed His Convictions.
Mr. Bryan in 1911, in his noted address before the General Assem bly of the Presbyterian church made the following statement, which will be interesting in view of the sensa tion his stand on the serving of wine has made within the past few weeks. Mr. Bryan said: The federal govern merit has driven liquor from the senate and the house. Why not put the gov ernment on the side of total absti nence by excluding its use from di plomatic functions. When I visit ed South America a year ago last winter I was surprised at the cost of the diplomatic branch of the ser vice of the South American repub lics. It costs them quite a sum to meet present diplomatic require ments. A considerable part of the diplomatic expense goes for Enter tainment and the cost of wine is a large factor in the cost of enter taining. The smaller countries might hesitate to cut out wine lest it might suggest poverty, but the great Christian nations could aban don the use of wine at diplomatic functions without raising any ques tion as to their motives. Why should our nation not set the exam ple? Why should it not lead the way by throwing the weight of ?*s influence against the use of intoxi cating liquor? Our diplomacy is open and honest; we do not have to make people drink in order to deal with them. Our nation is in a po sition to make the start. Why not do it?" The Webb Law. How It Works. "The enforcement of the law will,'1 says the Brewers' Journal of New York, "compel many brewers, wholesalers and retailers to spend thousands of dollars for lawyers' fees, costs of legal process, etc., etc.; it will drive many men en gaged in the trade out of busi ness." All of which does not exactly agree with the statement of an op ponent of the law, the Dayton Jour nal, which insists that the law "in reality amounts to nothing and was never intended to amount to any thing." The Louisville correspondent of Mida'8 Criterion expresses the opin ion that no statute was ever passed that has caused such wide-spread speculation and inquiry." He states that a-rents for Louisville brewers tell him "that as soon as they present their cards to the out side houses willi a view to reach ing the head and doing business they are bombarded with queatton? as to what is really to happen under the law." Anybody who reads the daily pa pers discovers that these happenings are taking place every day. At Madison. Me., reports a local paper, occurred the first seizure un der the Webb law when under or ders from Sheriff Thompson of Skowhegan, one of his deputies seized three boxes of whiskey. The Southern Express company, writes the Eveuing Post of Dan ville, Ky., will deliver no more whiskey or beer in that town be cause of the recent riding. The Adams Express company, accord ing to a Greensburg, Ky., paper, was indicted on sixty-seven counts for bringing into and delivering whiskey in a territory where the lo cal option law is in force. At Lawton, Oklahoma, a seizure has been made by the authorities of Comanche county of a rather large quantity of liquor shipped from Texas, Missouri and Kansas eities. At some points orders have been given by the express companies to return all liquors on band and accept no more until the Supreme Court has passed on the validity of the act. Kansas is putting through a law requiring railroads, express compa nies and other common carriers to file with the county clerk notice of each shipment of liquor, and the man who gets it must give a receipt for it NOW PAINT. Strike when the iron is hot and paint when the property needs it. They paint ships a dozen times a year; yes, some of them, every voyage. What for, do you think? To look nice and get business. A livery keeps its carriages paint ed and varnished aud washed, to look nice and get business. A man, with a house for sale or to let, "does it up," and Devoe is the paint. There's more in paint than to keep out water. Paint for looks and you needn't think about water. A fresh coat of paint once a year is about as good for his credits as paying his debts. But the nran whose build iocs and fences look new, very like ly, has no debts. Stewart & Kesna ghan Bells it.

To prevent oat smut, the grain should be treated with formalin... It takes about one ounce of formalin for every five bushels of grain to be treat ed. Clean a space on the barn floor and thoroughly sprinkle it with the for malin solution before spreading the seed grain. The oats should be run through the fanning mill twioe to re move all light grain, as only heavy clean seed should be sown. Spread down the seed grain, then sprinkle the grain with the formalin solution made as follows: Formalin, one ounce; wa ter, two and one-half gallons; mix thoroughly. The solution can be ap plied with a fine rose watering pot; shovel the grain over so that every seed is coated with the solution. When all the grain is coataed, shovel the grain into a round pile and cover with sacks for not more than two or three hours, then spread out, and as soon as tho oats will not stick together lt is fit to sow or drill The grain should be treated in tbe morning and drilled in the 6ame day. The drill should be set to drill two and one-fourth to two and one-half bushels to the acre, aa the oats, having absorbed considerable water are larger than dry oats. Have the ground thoroughly mellowed; drill the oats in with 250 pounds to the acre of some good bone fertilizer. Even if the grot .id is in good order, il will pay to use the fertilizer. The fer tilizer will ripen the grain early, the straw will stand up stiff and cannot be blown down by summer dorins and the yield will be increased fully 10 tc 12 bushels per acre. STAPLE FOOD FOR CHICKENS Hens Cannot Give Best Results When Fed Grain Alone-Fowls De mand Variety of Feed. Grain ?s the staple food for poultry, and will be used for that purpose as long as fowls are kept on farms, but hens cannot give good results on grain alone. It is beneficial to them and will be at all times relished, but the de mands of the hens are such as to call for a variety. In the shells of eggs as well as their composition are sev eral forms of mineral matter and nitro gen, which can only be partially ob tained from grain. Even grains vary in composition, and when fowls are fed on one kind for a long time they will begin to re fuse it, as they may be oversupplied with the elements of the food partaken and lack the elements that are best supplied from some other source. For this reason they will accept a change of food, which is of itself an evidence that the best results from hens can only be obtained by a variety of food. Corn sud ?.m.- w- -aqpri RR food with advantage, but must be given as a por! ion of the ration and not made exclusive articles of diet.

USEFUL RACK LIFTERS Automatic Unloader That Any One Can Easily Work. Illustrations and Description of Con> trivance That Will Be Found Ad vantageous on Any Farm Racks Will Not Slip. I have an automatic unloader for heavy hay racks and other wagon bodies that any one can oparate who knows bow to drive a team, writea F. Hathaway of Fort Smith, Ark., in the Farmers Mail and Breeze. Fig. 1 shows one section of the frame as it appeara before unloading while Fig. 2 shows the position of the frame with the rack on lt. The posts A are 4 by 4's set firmly Into the ground. These posts should be set about 6% feet apart crosswise. The length and height of the frames depend on the racks used. BB are the lifting braces which must be well made and secure ly bolted to the posts, yet not so tight as to hinder them from moving freely in loading or unloading a rack. The pieces C are 2 by 6's bolted to the 11ft J How Lifter Does Its Work. lng braces. At their forward end? two short pieces of 2 by 4's (E) are baited that strike against the rack as it is j being driven between the frames, 'thus j h'H"?>Lu?> "l? tito HfUug irataoa loris raising the rack off the wagon. Two -osspleces of 2 by 4s (D) are bolted .gthwise to the posts to give the .rames rigidity. Two blocks (F) ire bolted at the forward ends of D to stop the forward movement of the lifting frame. These are placed a lit tle past the center so as to ,ock the trame while up. Two pawls notched at one end are bolted underneath the rack frame with the notched ends against the rear bolster of the wagon. This prevents the rack slipping back as it rises from the wagon. ERADICATING LICE ON SWINE Worse Than Useless to Dope Animals With Killer Without Disinfecting Pens and Bedding. By T. EL BAKER, Veterinarian, Idaho Experiment Station.) A pig weighing 150 pounds will have ipproximately 12 pints of blood, each ' )int containing 7,680 drops, or a little 1 >ver 92,000 drops of blood. If a louse 1 tbstracts a drop a day and the pig ls j warding several thousand lice, lt ls 1 asy to see where the profits go when j hogs don't pay." It is worse than useless to dope th? iig8 with lice killer without disinfect ng pena, bedding and in the spring, he wallow. First burn all the loose, dry straw, lean out tho manure, spray the pen oors, wallB, beams, troughs and ev ry crevice with a ten per cent solu lon of formalin or a half gallon of jrmalln to five gallons of water, reolin may be added to the wallow in arm weather, say half a pint to a irge wallow.
