The territorial district attorney has written to the department of justice at Wasbingon asking what he shall do about lt-and there's wbere tbe joke comeB in.—Minneapolis Tribune. Mr. Charles It. Flint, officer In fifty different corporations—most of them in the nature of truBta—declares that the country Indorsed the trust system at the last election. There 1B some war rant for the assertion. It by no means follows, however, that the trusts have come to stay, as Mr. Flint declares. The power that makes can unmake and e\en if tbe trusts do not fall to pieces through their own rottenness—a contingency by no means unlikely—the power to abolish them always resides in the people. That is to say, the truBts do not own the country. They exist upon sufferance. They can be wiped out whenever tbe people make up their minds to It.—Chicago Chronicle. 7: Ths employees of the Piano Harvestt Manufacturing Co., at West l'nllman, Chicago, were told to vote for a "full dinner pail," which they did almost to a man, as tbe vote of the ward shows a n»irly unaminonB vote fur McEinley. Immediately after election a general cut was made in wageB all along tbe line, and wages were placed so low that it was a question with the men whether they would work and starve or starve without working, and they chose the Ixtter, and have refused to work for the pittance offered. The result Is that the I'lxno Manufacturing company has Bhut down indefinitely. The men who are thus out of work as winter is just coming on, are trying to determine in their own minds the difference between vlcKinley prosperity and Bryan hard times—Clinton Advertiser. Bryan is of the (common peopie^yet ha ia a very unoommon .man. He is th* embodiment and personification of all that is noblest aud best. His sym pathy for his fellows Is commensurate with his rare natural gifts. The seemiog defeat of the cause he repre sents in the late election does not, sub due him. Ue is satisfied with the part he performed He could do less than be did. He believes in bis cause and does not regard the postponement of success aB a personal defeat. His am bition is inseparable from his cause and hi" patience aud endurance wait upon his convictions His love of worldly go«dB is subordinate In bis love of his fellows. Smiles of joy upon the bu •qgn faoe gladden bis beart beyond the contemplation of the possession of stately pUea'or broad acres. He vi' WB seriously the responsibilities of citizen ship and recognizing tbe present as tbe connecting link between tbe past and the future he holds the living as trus tees obligated to deliver unimpaired to thn generations tbat are to follow us thn fruits of the struggle and the sacri fices of tbe martyrs ana patriots of tbe pist which descended to us as an lu -ritance. To paternal instinct inten 8ili-8 his patriotism and commands him labor in order that those in whose Ui8 his own blood courses, may to the id of their lives, bless tbe memory of bun whom Nature's Uod made the nat ural guardian of their birthright. Bry I I'S campaigns are without a parallel rectrded history. Such forces as iposed him were I possible before itive pov-r and machinery multi plied the power of production and 'ie possible such vast accumulation of .vealth fa the hands of a single indi luil. The modern corporation em ITIUIF thousands of laborers to tend intehiues driven by steam or electricity u»s given wealth a despotic power un Known and undreamed of in other agex. In no other age did organized and con derated wealth possess so deadly weapon to poison and mislead the pub lic uiind as the venal com nercial press of our day. Therefore, the forces tbat 1 -veled their shafts against Bryan are a b'lnilred-fold more mighty than any trliiune of tne people had to contend with iu'the past. If Bryan bad faults they would be exposed. If he made 'nistakes they'would be spread before (tie eyes of ill. But Bryan, tbe peerless defender of the great American De mocracy, stands clean and strong with out spot or blemish, exhibiting a genius so superb tbat it forces the admiration of both friend and foe alike, wbile mar shalling the inteileot and conscience ot the nation and forming the plain peo. pie into a solid phalanx to give battle to and Bubdue the forces of evil in the Republic and to preserve the free instl turl ns Inhetrited from thb fathers of thn Republic and transmit them anfm tired to future generations.—National Watchman.

Whltcomb, New York. I have bandied the corn crop in tbe dry state, in nearly every way possible. Running it through tbe old threshing machine has these objections: You can do but a Bmsll amount at one time, as there is no practical way of getting the fodder from the machine without tread ing it more or less and this will start tbe whole bulk heating at once. The cob is lost in the mow, which we now grind up with the com. A large per centage of the g-ain is cracked, which in a moist time soon begins to mould, Witb small hUBker with a shredder and wind stacker arrangement, the pipe can be placed over any of tbe big beams In thn old style barns and maile to fill a hay half nt two-thirds full, without a man stepping in the bay. ThiB is the secret of keeping the fodder we tried it in threshing corn and tound it kept all right but we had to arrange high scaffolding so as to shove stalks off without treading. A mow 10 or 15 ft. deep will hold perfectly safe if not trodden. Those Stalk Fields As the cattle once more enter the stalk fields it should be carefully seen to that they have BCCPFB to »n abundant supply of good clean water. Every year there is more or less mortality re sulting from turning into the stalk fields. We are inclined to believe that at least a large percentage of this loss may be averted by proper attention be ing given the water supply.

Dairying was practiced in this coun try in colonial times, butter and cheese being mentioned among the earliest of American exports. But in those days it was only a feature of general farming, while now it is an important industry in fact, entire farms of many hundred acres are devoted exclusively to it. This progress has all been made during the last three-quarters of this century, for in 1823 tbe same crude in convenient implements for churning were employed that had been brought to this side of tbe ocean by the pilgrims years before. The following 25ryears, however, marked a period of much improvement in the dairy business, and many of the old fashioned churns were abolished, to be supplanted by the modern inven tions. The demand for dairy products bad materially Increased, the Bmall towns and cities had to be supplied witb milk, and there was an extensive market for butter and cheese. Farm ers awakened to the fact that there waB much profit in tbe dairy industry if conducted properly and went to work to study the best methods of curing the cream and utilizing skimmilk In var ious forms. Better care was taken of their cattle. Cattle were imported Into this country from all over the globe and were scientifically bred and devel oped into excellent milk cows. Con densed milk had been perfected, cream eries were established and there began to grow a large rt trade. Dairy organizations were cuiporated for the mutual benefit of tbe farmer and the manufacturer, ilixl when tbe war broke out this business had made so much headway that skillful 'dairymen were Bble to meet the demands) of the time and accordingly became very wealthy on the profits of a compara tively new indjistry ln ithe Uniud States. They Never Strike. There is one blase of laborers who never strike aud seldom complain. They get up at 5 o'clock in the morn ing, and do not go to bed.. until 10 or 11 o'clock at night. They work without ceasing the whole of that time, and re ceive no other emolument than food &nd the plainest clothing. They under stand something ot ienaot every braach of economy and labor, from finance to cooking. Though harrassed by a hun dred responsibilities, though driven worried, though reproached and looked down upon, they nevbr revolt and they wpnlM fat their own proMc- tlon. Not even sickness releases them from their posts. No sacrifice is deemed too great for them, and no in competency in any branch of their work is excused. No essays or books or ^oems are written in tribnte .o their steadfastness. They die in the harness, and *re supplanted as quickly as may be. These are the housekeeping wives of the laboring men. If these women had the time to rest which their hn^iia'iiis spend in dratr shops and ssipati' ii and if they hud the inoneT to spend which their hus bands squander on liquor and tobacco, they, would brighten their homes with comfort and sunshine, rear their child ren In respectability, and cause life's desert to rejoice and blossom like the garden of the Lord.—Selected NOT MUCH OF- AN ORATOR.

"Well, then, somebody else must have given it to you. I didn't have a penny In my purse." "Yes, but you did give it to me, mad* am, and it's all right, but"— She had got red in the face. The other passengers were watching the outcome,# and one youth who was standing craned his neck and got a good look at the coin. He grinned. She saw him grin. That broke what remained of her dignified and chilling patience. She testily snatched the coin from the bewildered conductor. As she was tossing it Into her open purse she, too, got a look at the coin. The car was coming out of the tunnel, and It was lighter so tbat she could make out the coin. "Why, that is a"— but she was too much confused to finish the sentence. "Yes, it is a $5 goldplece, madam. Tou gave it to me." "You might have said so" she mur mured meekly as she fished out a real nickel.

'On the left side, ex actly here,' I replied, indicating a spot little above the point of the hip bone. "He'went out, and next afternoon was summoned .In hot haste to the St Oharles-hotel. I found the planter (writhing on his bed, his forehead head ed with jsweat.and his whole appear ance indicating, intense suffering.

'Oh, right here,' h'e replied, putting his finger on the spot I had located at the office. 'I ieel as If somebody had a knife in me there and was turning it around.' 'VWell, then, It Isn't appendicitis at any- rate,' I said cheerfully, 'because that is the wrong side.' "'The wrong side!' he exclaimed, glaring at me Indignantly. 'Why, you tdld me yourself it was on the left.' 'Then I must have been abstracted,' I replied calmly. 'I should have said the right.' I prescribed something that wouldn't hurt him and learned after ward that he ate his dinner in the din ing room the same evening. Oh, yes he was no doubt in real pain when I called," said the doctor in reply to a question, "but you can make your lin ger ache merely by concentrating your attention on it for a few moments."— New Orleans Times-Democrat. Doing It Well. J1'A, Half heartedness never wins'in this world. If a thing is not worth doln£ do not do It, is a good rule. The late Robert Louis Stevenson was ahvaya an enthusiast In whatever he under took, even when at play. His stepdaughter, Mrs. Isabel Strong, who was for a time bis amanuensis, says that Stevenson used to maintain that no one could write a good story who was not a good player—who could not enter fully into the spirit of a game. He himself threw all his ener gies into whatever he might be play ing. At one time he was visiting a bouse where a small boy was "playing boat" on the sofa. When the lad got tired, he did not wait for the ship to come to port, but got down from the sofa and walked toward the door. Stevenson, who was watching him eagerly, cried out to him in apparent alarm: "Oh, don't do that! Swim at least!"—Youth's Companion. Tbe Mistake. "The other day," said Jones, "an old woman bounced Into our olHco, display ing a notice that we had written to her to the effect that a quarter tax on some property of hers was due. She swore she had paid it. I had the books to prove that she had not and suggest ed tbat she had made a mistake. "She declared that she had not and said, 'Don't you ever make any mis takes "I assnred her that I did not and jokingly added: 'The only mistake I ever made was when I was married.' "She looked at me a second and then said: 'No your wife made' that mis take.' "—Detroit Free Press. Poet'a Query An.ivered.
