PAMPHLET, "HOW to Obtain Patents," with
The Restless Voter.
[From tbo Iowa Capital.]
Col. Bryan held an immense meeting
at tbe tabernacle last ntght and the
people were enthusiastic. The demo
cratic party is getting itBelf together
preparatory to engaging in the business
of politics once more. Last year there
was no democratic party to speak of,
but there will be. The independent
voter rules America. When he makes
up his mind that one party has been
in power long enough, he changes his
politics, sometimes without due
sideration we tbink. One would think
that in a city like I)eB Moines where
prosperity is universal, where build
ings are being erected by moonlight,
electric light, gas light, and also by day
light, nobody could be found to give
any attention to serious proposition for
a change. But it must be remembered
that in the midst of the prosperity of
1892,the people voted for a change. And
there are indications now to the close
observer that, scared by the ghost of
Mark Hanna, the scarecrow of the
Philippines and the rawhead and bloody
bones of the trusts, the independent
voter is getting in shape to vote against
McKinley next year. The American
people love to see the ghost walk. It
is their nature to be speculators and a
new country with its broad prairieB sug
gests free thought and experiments.
If tbe contest next year is between Mc
Kinlev and Bryan, jiryan will poll more
votes than he did in 1896. l'eople ought
to know better than to vote against
prosperity, when they are enjoying it,
but they have done it before and they
will do it again. Tbe great hope of the
country will be the support of the gold
standard democrats, and there are some
indications that they are weakening.
This is especially true of Iowa. The
Des Moines Leader is getting ready to
support the nominee of the democratic
state convention for governor. Other

We regret exceedingly that the demo
cratic party has found it necessary to
make opposition to the patriotic policy
of the present administration. ItB out
cry against the Philippine war this year
will simply encourage th& Filipinos and
make the battles in tbe Philippines all
the harder. We would not object to a
democratic victory any time anywhere,
if such a victory did not mean injury
to the'United States. The American
people generally do not care who holds
the oBices, but they ought to be con
cerned in relation to American policies.
The fair way to do would be. to give
the present policies a fair test and thus
ascertain to tbe fullest degree whether
or not the gold standard is tbe thing.
If the silver policy shall be adopted,
we shall advocate that it be given a
fair test, before it shall be condemned.

It Is easy to understand why the Mc

find some other candidate for the demo
cratic presidential nomination than
William J. Bryan.
No man is more feared by the repub
licans than the man who, standing on
the Chicago platform, received 8,500,000
votes for president in 1896. And they
have good cauBe to fear this man.

The Importance of Ventilation.
Tuberculosis, or what is generally
known as consumption, is a disease
which is communicated to man mainly
through the use of milk from cows in
which this disease has assumed an acute
form.
Within tbe last few years we have
heard much more about it simply be
cause the location of the disease is more
readily traced to the cow than formerly.
The use of the tuberculin test is com
ing into general use and it is demanded
on every Bide that dairy herds be subject
ed to it. In these latter days of inten
sive farming tbe cows are too apt to be
closely conBned in ill ventilated stables,
and this has undoubtedly been the main
cause for the rapid spread of the disease.
Dairymen have been warned continu
ally about tbe importance of keeping
their herds warm in winter time. They
do not, however, recognize the fact that
ventilation is just as important as
warmth—more important in fact. Tu
berculosiB can be kept out of the herd,
and a system of good ventilation is the
most effective aid in doing it. Cows re
quire the same observance of sanitary
laws as do members of the human fam
ily. Fresh air does not coBt anything,
and it is the best tuberculosis preventa
in the world. wi-
Bogus Butter.
Those who prefer oleomargarine to
genuine butter have a perfect right to
use it, and the dealers have an .equal
right to furnish' them with the article-
But people who do not wish to use
oleomargarine have a right under^the
law to be protected from swindling dfeal
ers, who palm off upon th$m oleomarga
rine as genuine butter. ,-i5^
It is, therefore, gratifying to record
tbe fact that a fine of 325 has been' im
posed upon one dishonest Chicago deal
er for selling bogus butter as genuine
and that warrants are being sworn out
and prosecutions will promptly follow
against these dishonest grocers.
There is much disregard of the law-in
this matter, and the Illinois Dairy Union
proposes to put a stop to it. Every hon
est man will be glad to know that there
is an organization prepared to protect
the people from dishonest practices and
will wish the Dairy Union success in its
campaign.
Adulteration of food preparations has
become widely prevalent and tbe feder
al government has taken hold of the
matter. It will require vigilance and
perseverance to remedy this evil, but it
can and will be remedied.

A doctor in Rome has compiled and

Skilled Hen in Demand.
The demand for skilled buttermakers
is expected to be greater this season
than ever before. A number of cream
erymen have been heard to express
themselves as being through experi
menting with poor, cheap help, as it
has proven very expensive, and they
will begin this season with competent
help. It is to be hoped that every cream
eryman will see the profits to be gained
by employing a buttermaker skilled
in his art, and pay him a good salary.
The-buyers on our leading markets are
becoming more and more critical each
year, it is going to be the creameries
that turn out fancy butter every day
in the week that will be on top next
fall.—N. Y. Produce Review.
Preventing Calf Scours.
I always feed a calf all the milk it
will take, from the time it is weaned
from the cow and when it is a week
old, it Is fed from that time forth on
sour thick milk, says a correspondent of
Hoard's Dairyman. I take a good hand
ful of the best oil meal and scald it with
enough boiling water to warm the milk
sufliciently warm, and to give the calf
all the milk it will drink, and I have
yet to lose my (irst cslf, or have one
troubled in the least with the scours.
The oil meal, beBldeB being excellent as
a preventative of bowel trouble, is very
nutritious, and a calf will thrive and
do well on much less milk. when fed
with the oil meal than he would with
out it.—Ex.

The request was granted, but later on,
looking over the same records, tbe
colonel discovered that the same man
had been granted leave the month before
on the idontical pretext. Shatter said
nothing, but a couple of days afterward
encountered the bereaved warrior on

said Pecos Bill solemnly, "I want to

Her Ftrat Order.
She was newly married aud did not
know a little bit about either house
keeping or shopping, and she waa giv
ing her very first order. It was a crash
er, but the grocer was a olever man and
was used to all kinds of orders and
could interpret them easily.
"I want ten ponnds of paralyzed sug
ar," slio began, with a buainesslik&air.
"Yes'm. Anything else?"
"Two oans of condensed milk."
"Yes'm."
He set down "pulverized sugar" and
"condensed milk."
"Anything more, ma'am?"
"A bag of fresh salt Be Bnre it's
fresh."
"Yes'm. What next?"
"A pound of desecrated oodflsh."
Be wrote glibly "desiooated cod."
"Nothing more, ma'am? We have
some nioe horse radish just in."
"No," she said. "It would be of no
use to ns. We don't keep a horse."
Then the grocer sat down and fanned
himself with a patent washboard, al
though the temperature was nearly

In some portions of Germany the
kirmess, or obnroh mass, formerly
danced in honor of the dedication of a
church, is now observed with the special
character of a harvest home. It marks
the close of the year's labors and is cele
brated by three days of music, feasting
and danoing with partners ohosen or al
lotted, acoording to degrees of comeli
ness, at the preoeding May festival.
In southern Germany the qnd of the
harvest is marked by the sickle feast
The last sheaf is carried in triumph to
the barn and placed on the floor, while
the younger couples dance around it
One half of it is then decked with rib
bons and hung aloft, while tbe other
half is burned. ItB ashes are treasured
as a remedy for rheumatism and are
sometimes nsed in making amulets or
oh arms. The peasants leave for Wodan,
