The ability displayed by Oom Paul
Kruger in detending the rights of his
people against the insatiate greed of
the pirate empire of the world, is mak
ing friends for the Boers in the adjacent
British colonies of South Africa. It
begins to look as though, in the event
of war, Great Britan will have trouble
in all her possessions adjacent to the
Transvaal.
Samples of cement used at Gphesus
and Smyrna several centuries before
Christ have been analyzed and found to
be composed of carbonate of lime and
mixture of fatty acids. In trying to
imitate it experiments were made with
cement consisting of burned lime and
olive or linseed oil, but it was found
not to be permanent. Then a mixture
of two-thirds air-slaked lime and one
third olive oil was tried and hardened
readily and seemed to possess greaten
durance—which led to the belief that
this was substantially the compositions
of the ancient cements.

It may well startle the advocates of
an imperialistic policy to learn from
the annual report of the pension com
missioner that there are now on the
pension list no less than 991,515 names.
If nearly forty years after the begin
ning of the great war between the
states
nearly 1,000,000 men are drawing an
nually over 8140,000,000 from the treas
ury, what must be the final burden to.
the American taxpayer if President Mc
Kinley's plan of conquest 1b carried out
to its logical conclusion
Truly, imperialism Is an expensive
proposition. Can the people look with
unanimity on a plan which carries
with it the possibilities of an enormous
increase of this burden of taxation to
meet the tremendous expense entailed
by pensions?
from statistics furnished by the pen
sion bureau, it is learned that since 18645.
when the pension list began to assume
considerable proportions, @2,370,000,000
have been expended in paying pensions.
This is an amount not far from equal
to the expenditures of the generrl gov
ernment from" its organization down to
1860. The pension outlay from 1866 al
most equals the highest notch that the
public debt attained after the close of
the civil war. The debt'reached its
maximum August 1,1865, at £2,756,000
000. The pension expenditures since
1866 have been 82,370,000. The human
mind is incapable of realizing the mag
nitude of these money values. The
pension outlay was double the grost
earnings of all the 182,000 miles of rail
way in the United States during the
fiscal year 1898.
Truly In calculating the cost of im
perialism the minor, expense of the
present is not the only item worthy of
consideration. —Chicago Democrat.
A pretty story is told of Captain Frey
staetter, judge of the DreyfUB trial of
1894, who last week appeared at Rennes
and told the conrt that he now thinks
DreyfuB innocent. Eight years ago Frey'
staetter was a lieutenant in the Ton
quin army and led
hiB
men to the suc­
cessful attack ot the Tusyquem forts
although three-fourths of them were
hacked to pieces. The plot made the
young BOldier one of the heroes of the
hour, and bis picture appeared in the
Paris illustrated papers. It was seen
by a daughter of the great Manuel
family. She sent her photograph with
a few lines written on it. In four years
the young officer was back in Paris and
boldly stated his mission. Pere had no
liking that his daughter should marry
an olliicer in the colonial Bervice, and
withheld
hiB
consent. Freystaetter
was one of the Dreyfus judges in 1894
and soon afterward was sent to serve
in Madagascar. News came that he
was wounded and Mile. Maunel
promptly fainted. Papa's heart was
softened and last summer when tbeofli
cer came back to Paris there was a
wedding. In the meantime, Freystaet
ter, after the suicide of Henry, became
convinced that he had been an unwit
ting victim of the general staff in blast
ing the reputation of an innocent man.
The thing was on his conscience and he
announced his intention to testify be
fore the court of cessation. The mili
tary machine brought pressure to bear,
even invoking the aid of
hiB
wife. She
was told that he would ruin his pros
pects by speaking against the army
chiefs. Worthy of a hero's wife she
responded: "Better a lower rank and

Profits in dheeD.
English farmers keep sheep profit
ably on land which is worth from 8200
to 8300 per acre. They are kept not
for their wool, but for their vplue as
farm fertilizers and for the high priced
mutton which they produce. It is an
established fact that a pound of mutton
can be produced on a western farm for
as little first cost as a pound of beef or
pork. In selling value the mutton
holds its own with either. If we add
to this fact the wool crop which, even
at a low price, will pay for the food
eaten by the sheep, and the valne of
the sheep as a farm fertilizer and util
izer of otherwise waste products, it
proves beyond doubt that a flock of
sheep, say 75 ewes on a quarter section
farm, is one of the most profitable in
vestments which can be made. We
know there is the dog and the wolf and
the lack of proper fencing with so
many, hut by yarding at night near the
house the first may be avoided, and a
flock of the Bize named will justify the
employment of a boy for a herder dur
ing apart of the year when it is desir
able to give the flock the range of fieldB
outside a regular pasture. All the
territory north of 42 degrees, lying in
the northwest, is jspecially adapted to
the sheep.
Persistent Milking Win..
Last season, when the price for calves
went skyward, many'farmers who had
patronized the creamery and raised the
calves on skimmilk thought they could
Bee more money and less bother in let
ting the calves suck the cows. The in
dications are that this year calves will
not be worth as much money, and as
the cattle Btock of the country increases
to the normal, calves will further de
crease in value. Those farmers who
stopped milking and turned In the
calves will then see the mistake they
made. They will find that their cows
are not nearly as good milkers as they
were, before, and it will take them sev-y
eral years to build up an efficient dairy
herd again.
If there iB any one thing about dairy
ing that has been thoroughly and com
pletely demonstrated, it is that milk
ing makes milkers. The best cow in
the world can be ruined as a milker in
a comparatively short time by simply
letting the calf suok her or by care-
ansullied honor. And it so .happened lessness in milking. The poorest cow

raised by some to the
utilization of cornstalks as fodder, be-1
cause, it is claimed, these stalks are
needed to maintain the fertility of the
soil by plowing them under. The dry
stalk plowed under does very little for
the soil, save to increase the supply of
humus, and in this way serves a very
good purpose on stiff clay soils. Aside
from this, they are worth but little as
a fertilizer and can be far more profit
ably used as fodder to be returned to
the soil later on as barnyard manure.
Further, the rotation of the cornfield
with the clover field is every way better
as a means of keeping up soil fertility
than plowing under the dry corn stalks.

Dairy Blood at Fair Prices.
Again we call attention to ,the fact
that good dairy bred cattle can be had
at quite reasonable prices. In fact W#
believe that this is a good time for
those who need this kind of stock to
invest in it. It is not bunting, bqgwk
at scrub'prices, but as compared witlT
the way other classes of pure bred
stock are selling it looks cheap. There
will sooner or later be a reaction- from
the craze for beef that has invaded
even the dairy districts, and with the
dairy industry promising a healthy
condition pure bred dairy cattle will
be in better demand than now. The
time to get good blood cheap is when
it can be had. Those who let pass bar
gains in trotting bred mares, beef cat
tle and sheep a few yeare ago are pay
ing much better prices for the same
stock now, and they might hare been
sellers now instead of buyer-i had they
invested at the lower prices then.—Na
tional Stockman.

HAWKEYE POPTCISTS
Nominate Full Ticket anil DeolaN
Against Any Fusion.
Des Moines, la., Aug. 31.—The Peo
pie's party state convention met here I
yesterday with about 100 delegates
present, and nominated a state ticket
as follows: Governor, Charles A.
Lloyd, Muscatine county lieutenant
governor, S. M. Harvey. Polk judge
supreme court, L. H. Weller, Chicka
saw superintendent public instruc
tion, C. Worth, IJenton railroad com
missioner, Robert L. Dunning, Wa
pello.
The convention declared against
fusion and lntorsed Wharton Barker,
of Pennsylvania, and Ignatius Don
nelly, of Minnesota, for president and
vice-president in 1900. The conven
tion was addressed during the day by
Chairman A.W. C. Weeks, Professor
George D. Herron (of Iowa college)
and Joseph Parker, national organizer,
of Kentucky. Weeks condemned the
"so-called" Populiat convention re
cently held In Des Moines, saying that
it showed what had been previously
claimed—that the Populists were being
seduced from the path of Populism to
become an aid society to the Demo
cratic party.
He held that this year &ouid be th.
turning point in the history of the Peo
ple's party. Fusion, he said, had been
officially killed by the Democrats of
Iowa in the last convention. The
issues of the campaign as outlined by
Weeks and incorporated in the plat
form are anti-trust, bimetallism, in
dustrial freedom, anti-imperialism and
direct legislation. Weeks said: "The
state conventions of both the Republic
an and Democratic partiesof Iowa have
denounced aggregations of capital, but
neither party his proposed an adequate
remedy. We declare the remedy for the
trust evil to be public ownership of
public utilities.."
Weeks claimed that Bryan and the
Democracy were as responsible for the
Philippine war as the administration
itself. The address of Professor Her
ron was an exposition of his well
known radical views on "Christian"
Socialism.
