Adlai Stevenson, for instance, is -C9, and Levi P. Morton is 80, Milliard Fill more whon he died was 74, George M. Dallas was 72, John Tyler was 71, Martin Van Buren was 80, Elb ridge Gerry, 70 George Clinton, who came from Ulster county, where Judge Parker resides, was 72. Aaron Burr was 80, Thomas Jefferson was 83, John Adams was 90. These vice presidents of the United States are examples of the longevity of those who have held that office, though, of course, there have besn a few vice presidents who did not attain old age. The youngest vice president at inauguration was 30, the oldest was 09. William W. Astor has returned to this country—for a visit. He has come over to take a look at that part of Now York which he owns. That iB no small part of the metropolis. He is said to hold the fee of fifty square bloCkB of New York property and more reilt is said to be paid to .him than, any other indixidiial: real estate owner in the city. Yet Mr. Astor does not seem to be a happy man. He left this country because he could not be happy here. New York insisted that he should pay more taxes than he thought he ought to, and the newspapers here did not treat him with that respect which he considered due to his station and his money. So he went to England and renounced his allegiance to the con stitution of the United States and became a subject there. But even there he has not been strictly happy if all reports are true. Of course, he could chum it with a lot of high and mighty persons, but he has been greatly disappointed because he has not yet been made a peer of the realm Ho is still plain Mr., not even a Sir, much less a Lord.—Buf falo Express. It is revealed now that the gov ernment unwittingly worked a con fidence game upon the landseekers who rushed so hastily to Rosebud and registered for chances in Uncle Sam's land lottery. A large per cent of those who drew "lucky num bers" are refusing to register because the land is not worth the price set upon it by the government. All the stories about there being standing offers of $5,000, or any other sum, for certain claims, were wholly with out foundation. The government reserved all townsites, and the In dians took first pick of the land and seemed all that was worth jnore than the government figure of $4 an acre. It is estimated that enough was spent in railroad fare and for other expenses by land seekers to more than pay for an equal amount of land in a recognized crop section. It was the alluring possibility of get ting "something for nothing" that attracted more than 125,000 to the four cities designated as registration points. The spectacle of the general government catering to this gamb ling mania is far from edifying.— Commoner. Why Hot? Why does not Albert Cummins take the mask off tho "stand patters' and show to the people of this state, as he could if ho would, that the fel lows who are fighting him are doing it at the instance of the C. B. & Q. railroad corporation and because he vetoed the bill passed by the repub lican legislature under the whip and spur of railroad control which would have made a "Northern Securities Company" legal in this state? Why don't he tell the people of the threat made in his office to kill him politically, if he vetoed the bill and that the man who carried the threat to him admitted that he came from the C. B. & Q., owners of the Iowa republican party? Why .don't he tell them that J. W. Blythe and his following of corpora tionists don't care a tinker j) dam whether the tariff schedules are writ ten up or down so long as they can befog and bleed the people of the state? Why not come out in the open as IbFollette is doing in Wisconsin and lead the people against corpora tion control in Iowa politics? Why not tear off the mask?—At lantic Democrat.

Things Known, Bat Often Unheeded. The sheep man does not always do as well as he knows.' For this he can give no good reason. In order to remind the old sheep men of some things they have forgotton or lost sight of wo compile a few gems. A small, fat sheep will always bring more money than a large poor one. Overstocking is usually in jurious to the flock and ruinous to the farmer. Sheep are almost essential in maintaining the fertility and cleanli ness of the land. Dryness-overhead and under foot is a rule that should be uncompromising as the laws of the Medes and Persians. The sheep is a most particular animal and quarters should be kept scrupulously clean. The feed should also be kept clean. When hunger forces a sheep to eat unclean feed the danger has been reached. Sheep are naturally gregarious, and when one sheep id seen off by itself it is safe to guess that some thing is wrong with it and the mat ter should be investigated. There is as much danger, in over feeding sheep aa in under-feeding. To know the exact amount requires «xpert sheppmall. Nckiqafeniles ,can be laid down for this- business. It should be remembered that sheep that are thin in flesh have weak digestion and therefore can be easily hurt by over-feeding of grain. No sheep should be allowed to die of old age, but all should be fatted and sent to market before their vitality has become impaired. !&r Haul Oat The Manure. A great deal of manure that was made on the stock farms laBt winter is still lying around in the barnyard or perhaps piled up against the out side of the barn. There was no op portunity to get it out in the spring for various reasons, or perhaps the farmer thought there was no oppor tunity. It don't make much difference which. Solomon once said, "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he," and he never said a wiser thing. It may be said with equal truth if not with equal authority that" as a man thinketh, so is his farm." If he thinks he can't get the manure out or can't do any one other thing, it is not done whereas, if he thinks he can there is a possibility at least that it will be done. There has been great waste in this manure that has not been hauled out we would say anywhere from twenty five to fifty per cent. The waste has been in the soluble elements. It is not all wasted, however. The humuB material remains even if the potash and phosphoric acid don't, and there fore it is important that it be hauled out now. After harvest is about as good a time as any to clean up the farm. The season for hog cholera is coming on, and we might as well say, the diseases that pass under the name of cholera and the barn yard should be put in the best sanitary condition. Therefore haul out the manure. Where to put it? There is no lack of places. This clover and timothy meadow that is getting a little thin and that has not the thickness at the bottom so much desired by the man who wants a good hay crop. Haul out the manure from the stables especially the horse stables, and top dress this meadow. We have said it so often that we don't need to say it again—get a manure spreader. Why? To double the value of your manure and save a little less than half the time in get ting it out. It will cost you some money but get it even if you have to Bave on other things or even bor row. There is nothing lost in bor rowing money to buy a manure spreader. Don't neglect the pasture. Manure is never wasted if it is put on a pas ture. It may not bring immediate re sults on corn, but if you put it on grass it will grow and save some of your loss from leaving it in the yards this winter. Why? It will stimulate the grass roots, largely increase them and the grass roots are manure that don't need hauling out and that don't waste. There are other places that we might suggest, but don't care to because we think the true policy of the western farmer is to put his manure as nearly as possible always on grass, and at any time of the year, winter of summer. The pasture is always ready. The meadow is always ready after harvest, and there is plenty of room on one or the other NOT TRUE TO THE POLE. Vfce Variations In tho Pointing of the Compaan.

Tho poets tell us how the needle Is true to the polo. Every reader, however, is flpw familiar with the general fact of variation of the compare. On our fMtern seaboard and all the way across ths Atlantic the north pointing of the Mass varies t4» iar to the west that ihip-'golng to Europe and making no allowance for this deviation would find herself making more nearly for the North cape than for her destination. The "declination," as it is termed in scientific language, varies from one re gion of the earth to another. In some places it is toward the west in others toward the east. The pointing of the needle in various regions of the world Is shown by means of magnetic maps. Such maps are pub. lished by the United States coast sur vey, whose experts make a careful study of the magnetic force all over the country. It is found that there is lino running nearly north and south through the middle states along which there Is no variation of the compass. To the east of it the variation Is west, to the west of It east. The most rapid changes in the pointing of the needle are toward the northeast and north west regions. When we travel to the northeastern boundary of Maine, the westerly variation has risen to 20 de es. Toward the northwest the east erly variation continually increases un til In the northern part of the state of Washington it amounts to 23 degrees,— Bimon Mewcomb in Harper's. DOMESTIC NEGLECT. The Tragedy of Little Thins. That Are Left Undone. The judge and spectators in a Kan sas City courtroom laughed when a husband testified that his wife gave him only "mechanical kisses." Then the lawyers devoted many min utes to the question, "What is a me chanical kiss?" They decided that It was a salutation given only through a sense of duty, and then they laughed some more. They didn't go far enough. They might have called It a tragedy. With most women affection lasts. It burns as strongly In old age as in gold en youth. A caress means a world of Joy to them. Some men forget They grow care ss. Carelessness Is often a species of selfishness. Once It was a privilege to press a lover's kiss on the lips of a wifo at the door when leaving in tho morning, ngain as a warm greeting that always marked the homecoming at night. And one morning the man forgot the caress and lost himself in business. And a shadow fell on a romance, and the woman wept. She tried to be brave and sensible. She tried to laugh at the silly fear that he didn't care for her. She assured herself a hundred times that It was such a little thing and that It was nacural for him to forget und that it was unreasonable for her to ex pect tho Joy of the honeymoon through life. She wiped away her tears and re solved to hide her grief and bo kind, loving, patient And the man never knew. Perhaps some day he went into court and com plained that he bad been tho recipient of "mechanical kisses." Domestic neg lect isn't always confined to lack of food and clothing. (Cruelty doesn't al ways take tho form of physical abuse. When men learn to think, when they remember that the little attentions of ten mark the difference between Joy and sorrow in a woman's life, there will be moro real happiness in the world.—Mil waukeo Journal.

The Canary islands vero nnhjot-'ted by Spain about the time CnltimhuH dis covered America. The conquest was due solely to tho superiority of Euro pean weapons and not to better skill and prowess. The uativo soldicrj wore trained athletes, developed under a system which held athletic spo?ts an toiportant business, like military drill. Spanish chronicles have left us ac counts of the Bports of the islanders. From babyhood they were trained to be brisk in self defense. As soon as they could toddle the children were pelted with mud balls that they might learn how to protect themselves. When they were boys stones and wooden darts were substituted for the bits of clay. ,1^1 this rough school they acquired the rudiments of warfare which en •bled them during their ware with jthe Spaniards to catch in their hands the Hrrows shot from their enemies' cross bows. After the conquest of tho Canaries A native of the islands was seen at yille who for a shilling let a man throw at him as many stones as he Mc&sed from a distance of eight paces. JVithout moving his left foot he avoid every stone. Another native used to defy any one to hurl an orange at htm with so great rapidity that he could not catch it. Three men tried this, encb with a dozen oranges, and-the islander caught every orange. As a further test he hit his antagonists with each of tho oranges.
