To tlio late Daniel Lamont belongs the credit of originating the phrase public otHco is a public trust," which has been commonly attributed to Grover Cleveland. When private secretary to Cleveland, then governor of Xew York, Colonel Lamont com piled a pamphlet made up of Cleve land's notable public utterances. Heing a trained newspaper man, Mr. Lamont naturally cast about for a striking headline or title, and the famous phrase suggested itself to in Mosquitoes and Yellow Fever. [Portlaud Oregonian.] His believed to have been demon strated fully by our people in Cuba luring the occupation by oursoldiers that yellow fever is propagated only through the mosquito. Men slepc in yellow fever quarters, on bedding on which yellow fever patients had lain and died, yet had not a touch of the disease. The only precaution was to bar the mosquitoes out. lobert Lee Harris, chief of the Catawba tribe of Indians, which has tiny reservation embracing only o:.e square mile near Rock Hill, South Carolina, on which are eighty members of the tribe, lately visited Itnleigh, North Carolina, seeking in the state library for all information possible about the Catawbas. These ndians were, even after 1700, a powerful tribe and touched the Cherokee0, who were in the North Carolina mountains and in the foot hills. Chief Harris says that there are only 150 Gatawbas in the United States, while in 1700 the tribe could muster several thousand warriors, lie is anxious to have the tribe put under federal care and educated by the government. A good old gentleman told us the other day that he had moved to town to give the boys a chance. He said that he wanted them to go to school and not Tie compelled to work as hard as he had been worked. We asked him how the experiment had succed ed and he said the boys had already learned tosmokecigars, swear, shake dice, and make fun of their father and other retired farmers as old hay seeds, "reubins" etc., and from pres ent indications he had no idea they would ever hurt themselves with work. It isn't so important that a boy who don'twant an education and will not improao it is highly educat ed. Education spoiles as many boys is work. Many young chaps think they want to be lawyers or editors or preachcrs when all that ails them is iaziness.

The last of the Litts family, one of the most remarkable in New York, has gone with the passing away of l'homas, who died in Monticello. He died suddenly from the effect of the extreme heat while at work in a field near his home. He was 80 years of age and for the last half century had been one of the most commanding and prominent figures in Sullivan county because of his size and wonderful strength. He was sergeant in the One Hundred and Forty-third regiment of New York volunteers and was the strongest man in the regiment. Every mem ber of the family of ten, five males and five females, were as strong as a giant, and the wonderful feats of strength performed by theni won for them almost national fame Thomas Litts, while attending the old-time logging and haying bees, on differ ent occasions has been known to pick up a barrel full of cider and drink from the bunghole.

Yet it is one of the world's nine great ship canals, and in total annual tonnage it surpasses all the rest. Last year 10,120 vessels passed through its locks. Their tonnage was 31,510, 106. Fewer ships and no more ton nage entered the port of New York for the same period. The celebration begins today of the Soo canal's half century, but its site has older traditions. Accord ing to the Indians the stamping about of the Great Hare god left the St. Mary's falls miu rapids as white men found them. British fur hunt ers dug around the troubled stream a narrow way for their bateaux. Michigan tried to dig a canal in 1339 and was stopped by regular troops for trespass. In 1852 came a government grant of 750,000 acres of land in aid of a waterway, and in 1855 the Soo was opened. It re mained state property until 1881, when the United States took it over and 4uilt a second lock at a qf GROCERY. S«44444iS^44«4«4«4«4444444 coBt MANCHESTER, TOWA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 1905.

Making corn into silage is a means of preserving the grain, as well as the stalk, in the best possible condi tion for feeding and without the ex pense of shelling and grinding, says NVilber J. Fraser, chief in dairy hus bandry at the Illinois experiment station. In feeding whole corn, either in the ear or shelled, many of the kernels are not digested. With silage, the grains being eaten with the roughage, nearly all the kernels are broken during mastication, and since they are somewhat soft, are practically all digested. 13y the use of the silo the corn is removed from the field at a time when no injury is done to the land by cutting it up while soft. As the corn is cut before the blades are dry enough to shatter, there is no waste from weathering, and both stalk and grain being in good condition the whole crop is consumed by the stock, while with dry shock corn a large percentage of the leaves and butts of the stalk is wasted. Being a succulcntfeed, corn silage tends to heavy milk production and should be given an important place in the ration of dairy cows. It has proved an important factor in steer feeding as well as in milk produc tion, but a steer cannot be finished on silage alone, any more than a cow can produce her best yield of milk on such a ration. IN MIDfUrMllKll. A pasture will carry much more stock during spring, early summer and fall than it will through the hot, dry weather of midsummer. By help ing the pasture out at this season with partial soiling the cattlo not only have better feed during this critical period, but more stock can be carried' on a given area than by pasturing alone. Mr. Fraser also remarks in bul letin 101, from which these points on the silo are taken, that as land increases in value and farming be comes more intensive there is greater need for soiling, and the most satis factory method of providing a sub stitute is by means of the silo. It requires too much labor to cut green crops every day and haul them to the cows, and, besides, tliere is neces sarily a great loss in being obliged to feed the crops before they are fully matured and after they are overripe. Mr. Fraser concludes that no crop furnishes more feed to the acre than corn, and with the silo it can be utilized for soiling, thus permitting the whole crop to be harvested when at tho right stage of maturity and fed when needed, saving both feed and labor. The Merits of the Small Thresher. If you are unwilling to go to the trouble of stacking, the sooner your small grain is threshed the better. For this there are several reasons. Every day the grain stands in the shock there is liability of injury from bleaching, rain, wind and wild fowls. The proper thing to do is to run the grain through the machine and get it to the elevator or granary at the earliest possible moment. This eannot always be done where one depends upon the regular thresh ing outfit, which must come in rota tion ono is just as apt to be the first as the last on the list. No mat ter how willing the owner of the outfit may be to please you, he must take each farm in order. This year it may be more important than usual to get the threshing done early. There may be profit in threshing early and marketing before the full flush of the grain movement. At least the farmer could be ready to do this. in a moment were the grain ready and should conditions war rant. How can early threshing be ac complished By getting one of the small outfits now on the market and doing your own work. It may not pay for a small farmer to buy one for his own use exclusively, but sev eral can unite and buy ono to be used in common. Then owners can do their own threshing, and if they have time, can get back part of the original cost by threshing for neigh bors. Machines of various sizes can be obtained. Frank Cwach of Utica, Yankton county, South Dakota, bought a 24-inch cylinder machine six years ago, and lias used it ever since with great satisfaction. In good wheat he has threshed 400 bushels a day, oats 1,000 bushels and barley SOO bushels. The crew consisted of one man to stack straw, two to pitch bundles, one to cut bauds, ono to haul ajivay the grain (two when oats were threshed), one to feed the ma chine, ono to handle the hoi-Be power. of more than $2,000,000. In 1896 a $-] 000,()()0 lock 800 feet long, 100 feet wide and admitting vessels drawing twenty-one feet of water was completed. Upon the operation of tho Soo the development of the great iron, copper and grain traffic of the North west largely depends. In its growth it has kept barely up to the demands of expanding trade. Since 1895 it has had the fellowship of the Cana diaii Soo." There is ample work for both.—New York World. land. Mr. Nc*ss says it works better than a big rig, runs steadily and threshes clean, and does especially line work with llax. Iln is convinced it is the best machine for one or more farmers to buy. Au Iowa farmer, W. L. Orr, purchased a 32 inch cylinder thresher and says ho was much surprised at its efficiency. The first year ho threshed 250 bush els of different kinds of small grain and did the work as well as with a big outfit. Tho advantage of the small thresher is that it is easily and quickly moved. One day we threshed ten acres of oats, thirty-five acires of wheat, moved and set twice. The machine has not cost us one cdnt fur repairs. At the end of the first season it was in peifect condi tion.'' There is no question as to the popularity of these small thresh ers. Their usefulness h:js been demonstrated again and again. They make fanners independent of the threshing combines. The farmer saves money on his own jobs, and' besides gets his grain out just when lie wonts it.—Farmers' Tribune. A Street Domlitiy.

"Lieutenant Burton, be pleased to inform these gentlemen that I propose to form these men into '4? c, then to break Into echelon by the right and to foi'in square on tlie center battalion," and'so on, for about five minutes, in military tech nical terms for which there were no equivalents in these men's dialects. "Yes, sir," said Richard, saiating. Turning to the chiefs, Richard said, "Oh, chiefs, our great man !s going to show you the way we fight, and yon must be attentive to the rules!" He then touched his cap to Sir Charles. 'Have j*ou explained ull?"vhG asked. 'Everything, sir," answered Richard. 'A most concentrated language that must be," said Sir Charles, riding off with his uose in the air. The Strongrent Kln«r.

A Bored Princes*. F. Levesou-Gower, long prominent in England, published a volume of rem iniscences, in which he tolls the story of Princes^ Lleven: "What the prin cess chiefly suffered from was Intense boredom, which amounted almost to a disease. If nobody called during the afternoon, she would roll on the floor from ennui. On one occasion, when on her way from Euglaud, site got so much alarmed at the prospect of trav eling from Calais to Paris alone that she offered a seat in her carriage to a respectable looking clergyman on board the steamer, which he Joyfully accept ed. When seated beside her, he talked so incessantly as to drive her wild. She could only relieve her feelings by put ting her head out of the wiudow and screaming out to the wiuu, 'II m'euuule —il m'ennuie!' (He fatigues me.)" A Clever Ruwe. When Thurlow was lord chancellor of Euglaud he was much at outs with the bishop of Londou. The latter was visited one day by a clergyman who sought appointment to a fat living then vacant. He wanted a letter of recom mendation to lArd Thurlow, but the bishop said such a letter was likely to do more harm than good. Nevertheless he wrote It. Wheu Thurlow read the missive he said, "Well, as that scoun drel, the bishop of Londou, lias Intro duced you, you won't get the living." "So the bishop said, my lord," was the meek reply. "I)ld the bishop say so?" roared Thurlow. "Then I'll prove him a liar, for you shall have the living." And he was as good AS his word. Good lloth W'ny*. Bishop Wilson of Calcutta, whose speeches are often quoted, had the happy faculty of saying tbe right thing at ail times. On one occasion two young ieoplo whose fathers were famous for their diverse and peculiar views on Biblical subjects came to see the bishop. "Ah," said he as he grwted #ne. "your father wrote a great work ou tile Apocalypse. I congratulate you on being the daughter of such a mau." Then, turning to his other guest, be said: "And your father forbore to write about the Apocalypse—a wise forbearanco. You are to be congrat ulated on having so wise a father." Dncou mid the Wnlier*.
