that "If one is passed I will exercise my

Tbe American people are opposed to

A recent compilation shows that the
price of the necessities of life are 7 per
cent higher than at this time a year ago.
A family must now pay 817.74 for what
could have been bought last October,
1000, for 891.29. Four years ago, in
October, 1897, tbe same things could
have been bought for 872.45. General
commodity prices aje_npw .higher than
jSt any tlmeln the last tenyeara. It may
%»''rdugb1y said that the cost of living
is one-fourth blgber than when at the
lowest point. That Is to say, the dollar
has depreciated in purchasing power.
To use the kind of argument made
familiar in the political campaign of
18U0, we now have a 75 cent dollar. It
follows from this that tbe person of
fixed income, whether from wagep, sal
ary, investment, pension, or the like
not as well off as during the hard times.
Unless tbe dollars coming to him have
iucreased in number proportionately to
the decline of each in exchange value,
the screaming good times of the last
four years, concerning which there has
been so much general gratulation, have
brought no dividends.—l)es Moines
No Trade Relief in Sightf
Thus far nothing has been done since
tbe assembling of congress about the
reduction of taxation beyond deciding
to hear representatives of the tobacco
and beer Interests and to call on the
treasury department for informatiou as
to tbe current productiveness of exist
The decision to give hearings to those
interests may fairly be regarded as au
indication that it is tbe settled purpose
of tbe republican leaders to touch
nothing but tbe BO called "war taxes"
and to do nothing whatever to improve
our strained trade relations with by lar
the best customers we have on earth by
taking so much as a shaving oil the
monstrous Dingley duties, which have
already brought upon us strong meas
ures of retaliation and which are bring

more to build up oar foreign trade, aud

Rye for Hog Pasture.
A correspondent writes us to know
whether there Is any danger in pastur
ing pregnant sows on rye.
There is a common opinion that rye
fed to pregnant animalR will produce
abortion. It the rye contains ergot,
there is danger not merely of abortion,
although we think that danger is over
estimated, but danger of producing dry
gangrene. Tbe ergot of rye, or of any
other grain, tends to contract tbe ar
teries and hence weakens the circula
tion at tbe extremities. The hoofs be
come affected with dry gangrene, tbe
skin of tbe nose peels off and in hogs
the hair will come off all the result of
weakened circulation of the extremities.
It IB therefore, dangerous to feed chop
ped rye that contains ergot, or rye
The ergot can be readily detected by
the long black grains, known among
farmers as "spurred" rye. We do not
see, however, why there Bhould be any
danger In allowing pregnant sows to
pasture on green rye, or rye In any
other stage, until the ergot begins to ap'
pear, which Is about tbe time the rye Is
ripe. We have never heard of any in-
iurious effects from it Therefore wa
juriouB eittcts from it. rhwefore, we
do not beflitate in say lbg that It ie en

The Average Cow.
As tbe average man is not tbe ideal
man, so the average cow 1s not the Ideal
cow for dairying. As regards the cow,
the trouble iB that she eats and exists
upon a man's farm, doing only half tbe
ycyrv she ought tQ do. andjbecanaumes
aa much food, or .perhaps more, than
first-class milkers. She will give about
3,200 pounds of milk yearly, while she
ought to give as many quarts of better
milk. Her structure is generally the
reverse of what it should be her head
is too large, and her shoulders wider
than her hips besides, she has a tend
ency to put fat upon her caul and not
her milk, and has ample storage
capacity for everything except milk.
She is a parasite, which, according to
Mr. Could, "eateth by noonduy and
wastelb a man's substance by night."
In this way, she beats ail the truBts and
ringB of which mankind complains. As
a cow she is one that uses health and
vigor to consume food and render as
little return therefor aB possible.
The average cow may be good for
other purposes than dairying. It mat
ters not that her blood is a mixture of
good and bad elements proper training
and careful feeding may raise her above
the average. Keeping account with
dairy cows and employing tbe most ju
diciouB and best tried mt thods of feed
ing and treatment will Improve the
milk giving properties of the stock.
Tbe average cow cannot be blotted
out, as a race, on Bhort notice. But
much can be done In raising the average
and increaaing the yield of milk. The
average cow and the wooden plow go
well together, but even tbe home dairy
requireB better stock than that.—Dairy

Siberia, he received a telegram from

whether he would nccept from tbe czar

of his services to Russia. For many
days the famous explorer wavered, as
he was a member of Bjorstcrne BJorn

accept any decoration from anybody.
Nordenskjold, however, could not re
sist the temptation, so he replied to the
telegram In the affirmative.
It is uot hard to Imagine his disap

a friend of his. a high official, told him
the following: "The Russian govern
