of the War Department solely for polit
ical reasons, lie is absolutely without
any military or naval training or experi
nee. He never "set. squadr.-.n in t!e

he has the colossal impudence to rej.

Dewey, the hero of Manila, that Amir

Thus with one sweeping ceneure doeB
this knight of the quill condemn thrie

most successful lighters on land and sea

That this reprimand was made "by

to its propriety nor its justice. It simp

Rural School Merger.
A form of merger likely to be popu
lar is that of rural schools. It bears
about the same relation to eUlck-ncy of
service that the rural mail delivery does
to the fourth-class poBt oilice. The
establishment of a delivery district Is
in effect the consolidation of a number
of small poBtotliceB, since the latter ara
discontinued and the mail brought to
the doors of the reBidentB. In the
consolidation of a number of rurt.l
schools better school buildings ami
a more ellicient teaching force is
made possible at no increase in cost,
and usually at a reduction iu Bggregatt
cost, and fuuds are available to provide
transportation at the expense of the
consolidated 'istrict for the children
residing at a distance from the school
house. The plan, as put in practice iu
some of the eastern states, is said to
have bad very beneficial results.
Mr. J. W. Uison, the Minnesota sup
erinteudeut of instruction, is very en
thusiastic in regard to the possibilities

i'laus are now maturing for the consoli
dation of the six school districts or a
township in Faribault county. Mr
Olsou says: "At present most rural
school dlstrlctB, to ue self-supporting,
are so large that some of the children
must walk from two to three miles.
The idea is to consolidate several of
such districts in such manner that no
pupil will be more than five miles tuvay,
and then give them a ride to thu central
school. To ride five mileB tak»s less
time and is less of a hardship than to
It is estimated that in such consoli
dation about one-tbird of the present
teaching force can be dispensed with,
that the schools can be graded and the

The writer is desperately afraid of
the roup. We do not believe there is
any cure for it, notwithstanding the
numerous advertised remedies to that
effect. We are positive that we have
been the loter by every attempt we have
made to cure a fowl suffering with that
disease in the fullest development. The
only safe course is in prevention, and
anything which tends in this direction
should not be neglected. A heavy coat
of whitewash, or the frequent scatter
ing of air slacked lime about the poul
try honse in winter reduces the chanceB
of an outbreak of the disease. We
know this to be a fact, and use the lime
from a sense of duty without trying to
solve the mistery of how it operates to
produce this effect.—Wallaces' Farmer.
Raise More Farm Horse
Tnere is too little horse power In
New England to properly till and cul
tivate the soil, says l'rof. Charles Wil
liam llurkitt in l!ulIetiaS2 of the New
Hampoh'.re oxperir-e sta»'w. There
are thousands of acr .j of tillable land
in tho east that have not felt the plow
for a long series of years, Eome for de
cades and some for a half century. Soil
will not remain productive if untilled.
We have not enough horses or working
units in the stBte to do the regular
farm work and to carry on tillage as it
should bS done. The ox, generally
speaking, has gone, while the number
of horses has not increased proportion
l'ractically the only supply of horseB
is from other states yot this Btate is
quite able to supply its full needs and
could have to spare for demands else
where. The work lies with the farmers
themselves, not only to increase the
number of working horses, b.ut to im
prove them and ma!:e them more ser

Use of Lime in Winter.
The liberal use of lime about the
poultry house in winter tendB to the
prevention of roup. We have never
heard anyone attempt a scientific ex
planation of it, but the fact is beyond
dispute. Compaiatively few people
realize the Importance of whitewash
lato in the fall. This is usually done in
the spring and summer as a disinfect
ant and a safeguard against hot weath
er diseases. Hut it is no less important
in the fall. lu fact, it would be better
to trust to other preventive measures in
the spring rather than omit the
thorough liming of the house on the
eve of winter.
A LIVING BAROMETER.
ri,r Crnl»liktk Spider Thnt Pirne* a.
VDritlntr, Wont Ho I- Sltnrp,
In Ytn-utau. :t land of many curiosi
ties. there Is a living barometer in the
form of a small spider, called "am" ou
account of the effect produced by Ita
poison. As far as Its own conduct goes,
the Insect is inoffensive and can be
handled with Impunity, but if anybody
has the mlsfortuue to get one mysteri

to die after a few hours aud meanwhile
for some unexplained reason will fre
quently ejaculate "Am, am, am!" hence
the name of the spider. Throughout
the peninsula this Is affirmed to be a
fact, and If an am falls Into fodder of
horses or mules the animal that swal

This spider Is shaped like a crab,
minus the claws, aud Is of a bright yel
low color, with brown spots the big

among the leaves of the banana shrub,
commonly, but erroneously, called tree.
There It spins with extreme rapidity.

A Geological Pullney.
Probably the most wild aud unjusti
fiable of all the crude beliefs respect
ing geological resources is that which
holds to the conviction that by going
deep enough the drill is sure to find
scmutliing of value, no matter at what
point the work of boring Is commenced.
There are numerous wise persons in
every community, estimable. Influen
tial and the highest degree public
spirited who are convinced that the
question, for example, of finding coal
in their special locality is simply a
letter of the depth to which the ex
plorations are carried. Hock oil and
natural gas are recognized as desirable
products Iu every progressive commu
nity, and every such community con
tains persons in other respects intelli
gent who are ready to stake their own
fortune and that pf their nearest
friends on the belief that oil aud gas
are everywhere underneath the surface

of drilling long enough.—M lues and

There seems to be no lack of custo
mers for farms just now, especially in
Kansas. This property, however, is not
a drug on the'market. Farm land is
going up every day and town property
down. Who says the farms are being
deserted The burning question will
soon be, not how to keep boys for the
farm, but how to keep farms for the
boys. There are plenty of farmers and
would be more if there were farms.
But without the land there is nothing
Professional shoppers are employed

drapers to test the abilities of shop as
sistants. This firm owns over thirty
large shops and employs nearly 1,000
assistants. To find out whether every
customer is politely served a number
o-2 lady customers are employed to call
the various shops. They are told to
give as much trouble as possible and
sometimes to leave without making a
purchase after looking at nearly every
thing in the shop. Should the unfortu
nate assistant's temper not be equal
to the strain, or should a single word
be said that might offend, a report will
lufttlllbly reach headquarters and lead
to tho dismissal of the sorely tried
