[Sprlngllcld, Mass, Republican.J A good eatire at the expense of the Uacoulan cipherists has been perpetra ted by an anonymous Englishman, who ahowa by methods quite as defensible as thoBe used in demonstrating that Uacon wrote the Shakespeare plays that bhakespeare really wrote the book of psalms. For his system it is necessary to spell the poet's name either Shakes pear or Shakespeare, both of which are permiBBible. Ju the name (shakes pear,*' he pointB out, there are four Tow els and six coiibouaDts, which make the number forty-cix. Turning to psalm the forty-sixth word from the begin ing IB "shake," and the forty-sixth word from the end, excluding the "selab," is "spear." What could be plainer? An Unjust Burden. One of the clearest statements of the "tax on Intelligence" involved In the duty on news print paper on wood pulp, the mw material of which is the busis of all the white paper on which news papers are now printed, is by the New York Times in the following editorial. The Times Bays: "Bleached wood pulp pays a tarill tax ot one-quarter of aceut per pound. Un bleached pulp pBya one-twelfth of a cent per pound if mechanically made, and one-sixth of a cent per pound if chemically made. Tho white paper upon which newspapers are printed is taxed three-tenthB of a cent per pound. The intention and eftect of these tries Is to enable American manufacturers of Tiaper to charg1 a higher price for tnair product. The interest of the newspa per public In abolition of the tax int'y be illustrated by an example It -is Impossible for a newspaper to add to its selling price the exact addit'cnal amount which it Is forced to ji'y or white paper on account nf the duty If the price of foreign NUDE paper IF, cay, two cents pound the duty amounts to 15 cents ad valorem. But a one cent newspaper cannot increase the price for which it is sold to the public by 15 per cent, or 25 per cent or any other frac tion. It muBt raise its price 100 per -lent or nothing.

For the best results In farming where stock IB kept, whether of cows or other animals, there should be good pasture. The better they aie the better will the results be. It the farm consists largely of arable land, there will be less difli culty in keeping the pasture In good condition by changing often as needed from pasture to meadow or back again. This frequent cultivation and reseeding will have a tendency to keep up a suit able variety and quality of grasses that will be the most protltuble for stock feeding. Nothing will stimulate a larger and better secretion of milk than a good bite from nutritious grasses. But comparatively few farms contain land that is mostly susceptible of cul tion. There will be a pieces here and there that can be plowed, devoted to other crops, fertilized, reseeded and again de voted to grazing In a greatly Improved condition and although it ma besome work to fence out these pieces and thus renovate them, yet it will be a paying investment of time and labor. A neigh boring farmer has been successful In plowing such pleceB in the fall and sow to winter rye and grass, along with some kind of fertilizer, without taking the trouble to tence the land. The rye would protect the young grass to some extent and furnish quite an amount of early spring feed. All land that with reasonable effort or expense can be plowed can in this way be very lunch Improved. Kven if quite rough and strong, not allowing of the best work, yet much benefit will be realized from such cultivation as can be fairly given. lSut there IB much pasture land that it wncM B? .-biiiit iui"ose Hand TOUM not pay to undertake to improve in this way, still eomeltung may be done to itake it better. If covered with bushes or brakes, frequent cutting will tend to subdue them, but the work must be persistent ly followed up to be of lasting benefit. There is some pasture land that it would be better to allow to grow up to wood again, not being of much value for anything else. It is possible in Bome cases to beneiit pastures by putting on a sharp toothed barrow, either in spring or fall, when the soil ts sulliciently moist and tear the sod to pieces as much as possible. Grass seed and some kind of fertilizer should be put on ana lightly covered.— Dairy and Creamery. Raise Early Feed. There are animals on every farm that must stay there, the farmer needs them in bis busim-Bs and it necessarily follows tiiat they must bn fed. There are years that it costs more to do this per week or month than it does others and tins is one of those exceptional years. All over the west corn, the principal crop, is scarce and high compared with what It usually is, and all other grains whether because of the scarce conditions or in sympathy with it, are high, too. While wheat may not be considered unusally high In price, yet it becomes more ex pensive than other grains usually are the moment use is made of it in feeding farm animals. On the very day the farmer begins feeding from tbe new crop, which will in all probabilty be considerably less in price per bushel, he will be keeping hlB por- estB, already seriously encroached u] ion by the demandB of the paper making in dustrles for this necessary raw mat or Ial. Across the Canadian border and In .Norway and other northern countri there are immense forests of spruce which, but for tho duty could be utilis ed." The tax npoa the raw material of which white paper is made IB paid dii rectly by the newspaper publisher x cept in those cases where the publish er raises the price and then It I« paid bj the people and thus becomes a direct tax npoa the dissemination of intellE gence. animals cheaper. Under theBe conditions then it ought to be the aim of every farmer to grow a certain amount of some quick matur ing crops, the grain of which he can feed to his work horses, brood sows, etcj Oats fit this case fairly well, especial ly so in regard to feed for the hotse family and a small field, If not all of that variety is wanted, can profitably be sowed to Bome early maturing Bort, the earlier the better. There are,however, in the west local ities where it is not considered profitable I or possible, on uccount of natural condi tions and certain peBts, to grow oatB aud lor these lociilities another crop will have to be or, perhapB, had better bo substituted. In this case the practi cal mind turns instantly to corn and we pret ume many will plant a small tleld very early just for the purpose of get ting the grain as soon as possible for Immediate use in feeding ordinary farm animals and perhaps to fatten a small bunch of shoats for an early market. We feel In this esse that a recommen dation to plant a small held to corn of an early maturing sort is both logical aud practical and under present circum stances we believe it just the thing to do as soon as the season arrives for planting. With this end in view and In order to be sure ol getting that which will be as early as any, we would if living far enough south in the corn belt to make it an object to do so, send north for enough seed to plant from live to ten acres. Then, too, there is tbe hog pastuer which ail modern hog ralBers have come to look upon as a necessity. If already in clover, alfalfa or some other plant that has survived the winter it should be allowed to grow as fact as possible and if It can be done a top dressing should be given It, so It will grow all ?#J,|M|| MANCHESTER, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MARCH Conservatism. the faster. In short, farmers should hasten to leave off feeding high priced feedB as soon as possible. There IB considerable difference be tween feediug fifteen bushels of sixty cent corn per week and during the week after feeding even a little more than this amount, because it Is new corn not quite matured, when it has become on ly worth thirty cents, and not even quite that if the farmer grows it him self. 1'iant Bomethlng that will grow early feed, it will pay this year any how.—Homestead.

'"Suhlbr he gaBped. 'Tho Russians are coming!' 'From what direction are they visi ble?1 nsketl the ameer without chang ing his expression. ""'From yonder hill,' replied the na tive.

IndastrioaB Old Clock.'- At quaint old Castletown, the "me tropolis" of the Isle of Man, there ex ists a very interesting clock, which has now performed its functions of time telling in five centuries. It was pre sented by Queen Ullzabetb In tbe year 150T to Castle ltuslien, the fortress which stands tn the middle of Castle town, from which the town takes Its name. The worts are crude, being driven by ropes nn.l pulleys, but never theless they keep f:iIr line. The clock. In fact, has run ever since It was built, except lor rare stoppages for repairs. To this day the single hand which travels slowly round the dial oublde the tower of Castle Rushen Is the principal source of information as to the hour to the inhabitants of Castle town.
