Centralization of wealth and indus
trial power in great corporations destroys
the prospect of the youth of humble
fortune of ever rising to financial inde
pendence. He sees the giants of trade
and commerce who overshadow him
and the power which they wield to
crush and destroy, and he despairs of
ever overcoming the obstacles before
him. Not so when fortunes are small
er, but more numerous, for then they
appear within the reach of all who are
frugal and Industrious.—Buffalo Times.
The resolves of the recent conference
are food for jest. England goes to war,
the United States plunges into militar
ism and the German emperor announces
the entry of his empire into "world
politics" with a larger navy and a big
ger army. Ware and rumors of war
disturb the sleep of prince and peasant.
What makes the spectacle grotesque is
that all this bluster is in the name of
trade. Commerce, we are told, Is war.
If you want cothmerce you must go
out and kill somebody. Military con
quest is the condition precedent with
out which trade is not possible. And
the funniest part of the joke is that
many sane persons actually believe it.
St. Louis Dispatch.
The Cedar Rapidis Gazette says that
Williams, the evangelist, is defendant
in a suit for 95,000 damages for alleged
slander, the plaintiff being Justice of
the Peace Ferguson, of Shenandoah,
Iowa, where Williams is now holding
a series of meetings. It is rather sur
prizing that Williams' tactics have not
made him defendant in more legal
actions. His long Buit is abuse, and he
never misses an opportunity to roast
those who differ from him. His career
in this city was short. For obvious
reasons the press refused to take any
notice of hiB meetings, and the revival
effort was brought to a close. Many
good (people were surprised at the
position taken by the press, but bave
no* criticisms to offer. It is ex
ceedingly doubtful whether Williams
could start another series of meetings
here under any circumstances.
Aguinaldo, the Balay.
It is difficult to form an opinion upon
a character belonging to another nation
or race, and the boyish Malay chief,
Emilio Aguinaldo, remains a character
not easily analyzed. That he is a man
of magretism and of certain power has
been proven by hiB success on organiz
ing a heterogenous mob of rebels will
ing to follow him to Bure death.
In away the interest of the world is
centered upon him, and it is interesting
to learn something of his career.
He was born not quite thirty years
ago, probably in the province of Cavite,
in the island of Luzon. There is some
doubt as to his ancestry, but he is
mostly declared to be the son of a Span

on into the house of a Jesuit priest in
Manila as "houBeboy" helping wash
dishes, clean Bilver, and the like. His
master took an Interest in him, and
gave him an education above the aver
He afterwards attended universities
in Manilla and Hong Kong. He had a
fiery sense of wrong done in the in
human oppressions practiced by Spain,
and he led many enterprises for the vio
lent punishment of those who haB been
the most flagrant oppressors. He was
always a leader, a "general" or a "col
onel" from the start. Yet it was hiB
influence which caused the insurgents
to accept the overtures of the Manila
goverment at last.
In his hands was placed the small
quota of the promised $1,000,000 actu
ally paid by the Spaniards, and he,
with hiB chief, left the island, under
bonds to keep the peace. But the
unauthorized promises, in May last, of
Mr. ltounsevelle Wlldman. the Ameri

that the United States would recognize

(Respectfully Dedicated to the Anglo-Maniacs

Dubuque Globe Journal.
Tbere was an old lady named Vic.,
Who, with Oom Paul, a quarrel did pick,
And her brain It Is burning.
And her mind It is turning
While cold chills up her ample spine creep.
Then she cried out aloud in her grief,
"Oh! for a man and a chief.
To s<y'er the sea
And do battle for me,
And bring my poor heart some relief."
Then camo forth the greatest of all,
To "lay out 'our old Uncle Paul,
But Paul he was fuller
Of fighting than Buller,
And old Vic. gave another loud bawl.
Now Oom. with his thumb on his nose.
Is wiggling his hand at his foes,
For, on Afrlc's dark jphore,
He has made Vicky sore,
And knocked out the chap with silk hose.
Now Oom gives a shout of defiance,
To her gen'rals of tinsel, not science
And In words loud and clear,
Says to Vicky, "Look here!
Dairymen in Session.
At the South Dakota Dairyman's
association held at Mitchell last week
instructive papers were read on the
smooth brome grass as a forage plant,
by Prof. Saunders, of Brookings col
'ege, and John Armstrong, of Desmet,
who spoke on feeding of the dairy cow.
During the afternoon the buttermaker's
assooiation held a meeting to decide on
the future of the organization, and sent
a committee before the dairymen ask
ing that the two associations be consoli
dated, adding the name of buttermak
ers to the name of the association and
giving them the presidency of the com
bined organization. The dairymen
finally agreed to take in the buttermak
ers on the proposition, and the name
was changed to the South Dakota
Dairy and Buttermaker's association.
The exhibition of butter was the
largeBt seen at any of the conventions
in a good many years, tbere being over
fifty entries in the competitive contest.
The following method is employed
for making butter which it is desired to
keep for a considerable time. When the
butter has reached the granular condi
tion in churning, that is, when the par
ticles are about the size of barley grains,
the buttermilk is drawn off and ice
cold water added. The butter is then
washed with cold water and removed
from the churn to a stone jar without
packing or mashing the grains. The
jar is then filled with brine. This brine
will soon dissolve some of the casine in
the butter and so acquire a cloudy as
pect. A change of brine will leave the
second solution clear on the butter. A
plate should be used to cover the butter
allowing the brine to come up over it.
The brine, of course, intermingles free
ly about each granule of butter
throughout the mass, which will pre
serve for weeks in tbis way. It can be
taken'out any time and worked into
rolls or prints. If too salty it may be
washed out with clear water.—Guy E.
Mttohell, in Farm and Flmtda.

Milk for the creamery must be milk
in Its proper condition. The farmer
who has permitted his milk to get Into
bad Bbape had better teed it to his hogs
or poultry than attempt to kaud it to
the creamery where it will be likely to
spoil a hundred other batches of milk.
Dairy Cow. Sating Straw.
Whenever grain is grown largely and
its straw is stacked in the barnyard
after threshing, cows have a great lik
ing for rubbing themselves against the
stack to rid themselves of the file, that
torment them. A fence should be
built around the stack t» protectit from
being pultod to pieces. Cows will eat
considerable straw, picking at It, and
they will often eat enough of the chaff
to lessen their flow of milk. This chaff
makes good winter feed if moistened
and grain meal or bran IB mixed with it.
Thus fed even the straw will not help
dry the cows off, as it will if fed dry.—
Buttermaker. at Hitchell.
The meeting of the South Dakota
buttermakers was one of the
most successful in the hiBtory of the
association, from the fact that
there was a larger attendance and
that there was a greater number of
creameries of the state entered in the
butter contest. During the session a
resolution was adopted urging the
South Dakota representatives in con
gress to take up the oleomargarine bill
and use every effort to secure its pas
sage. Each senator and congressman
was notified of this action by a tele
gram to one and strong letters to the
others. The secretary of the national
association was present during the
meeting and was able to secure the
promises of a large number of butter
makers toattend the meeting of the
National Buttermakers' association at
Lincoln, Neb., in February.

In keeping the herd of dairy cows
free from tuberculosis a few general
rulee at least should be observed. First
know that the herd is free from the
disease. Then do not bring anew cow
into the herd uniesB she has been first
tested by tuberculin. If milk is taken
to a creamery and Bkim-milk brought
back., do not permit it to be used till
it has been pastuerized. ThiB will not
only make'it safe to feed to calves, but
if it Is fed to pigs will also prevent the
disease being spread in that direction,
which means its getting a foothold on
the farm. Do not under any circum
stances permit strange cattle to run in
the pastures or occupy the stables.
Above all, do not permit a consumptive
person to take care of the cows.—Farm
Kysterioua Disease in Cattle.
A number of cattlemen at Ains
worth, Neb., have of late lost cattle
from some mysterious cause. The cat
tie so dying were those turned into corn
fields. They are attacked with dizzi
ness, stagger to and fro for a short time,
ending In falling to the ground in
spasms, and after a struggle, seem to
die in-terrible agony. A Star-Journal
reporter has interviewed a number of
stockmen over the cause of these
deaths ana each and everyone seems
mystified and unable to account for it.
Some think it is caused by the deadly
"nightshade others claim it has been
caused by "loco," so well known in
southern Kansas. Whatever the cause,
fully fifty head of cattle have died
within a radius of a few miles of Ains
worth. And also, whatever the cause,
it comes from the corn fields, for BB
soon as the cattle were taken off the
corn stalks and pot into the feed lots
the losses ceased.
It is claimed by some that the deaths
resulted from lack of water and salt,
the cattle overfeeding and becoming
bound up. This theory, though, is un
tritt witb regard to I. Fowler's cattle,
for instance. Mr. Fowler lost eleven
head j^fore he took them off the corn
IP llfti1- every case the
cattle had free acceas'to Ijoth salt'and
water and helped themselves liberally,
and instead of the binding process the
direct opposite was manifest. Neither
were the cattle bloated in the leaBt. It
is surely a case for the. state veterin
arian, and it is to be hoped that official
may help to earn bis salary by a strict
investigation. There have been no
deaths reported the past few days, as
cattle have been taken out of the fields
by alarmed cattlemen, and In so doing
the number of fatalities seems to have
ceased. At Trenton, Neb., farmers and
cattle dealers have loBt more cattle this
year than any previous year. E. A.
Hogg is one of the heavy losers, having
lost thirteen from blackleg. He is using
vaccine virus with some success.
Ola Little Contribution.
One of the many stories told of the
late Dr. Wallace, &L P.. Is to the effect
that when the editor of a local paper
In the north asked him "If he would
kindly furnish an article on 'a light
theological topic'" Wallace responded
with one bearing the title "The Rela
tions Between the Presbyterian Ohurch
and Modem Thought" When set up
the article made 40 columns, and it be
came a puzzle to editor and printer
bow to get rid of it They began by
using it In pieces, and whenever the
printer said to the editor, "We've got
no leader," the reply was, "Eh, mon,
just sneck off about a column and a
quarter o' Wallace," In this way the
contribution was used, first working
down from the beginning, then up
ward from the eu1. -Loudon Academy.
A HERO OF THE MINE.
B. Risked HI. Lite to Save Tbst of
Heber Franklin, a young man em
ployed at tho Clear Creek mine, Is as
much a hero aB any man who ever
braved death on the battlefield. Frank
lin sought not glory, but to save a hu
man life. There was afire In the mine.
The men were called out. Then they
were about to shut off the air In order
to stop the flames, when It was learned
that alone miner was working deep In
the mine beyond the point where the
fire Btarted and waB then raging with
growing strength. Here Is the story
of the subsequent events:
Foreman Thomas Immediately called
for volunteers to go with him into the
mine to rescue the man. Several at
tempts were made by different ones,
but they were driven back by the
flames, and the cry of "Powder!"
caused a hasty retreat
Finally Heber Franklin, a young man
whose work keeps him on the outside,
said, "I will go." And accompanying
Foreman Thomas he pressed on
through the fire and found the man
working away tamping a hole, entire
ly unconscious of the danger threaten
ing him. They succeeded ln getting
out ot the mine safely, when the fan
waB shut off and the dip closed up.
The rescue was an act of great bravery
on the part of Franklin, as bis work
kept him on the outside and be was
unacquainted with the exact lay of the
land inside, and the danger of suffoca
tion from black damp was great. He
was the only man of the many stand
ing by whose nerve did not desert him.
It is stated upon good authority that
ten minutes more of lost time would
have resulted ln the death of the miner
who was at work and possibly a great
loss to the company, as the supply of
air could not be cut off while there was
any hope of rescue, and this would
have tuM to (Md th« flames.—Salt
