I infer that, he is‘pretty thor oughly in sympathy with the measure in most of its provisions. lie errs who considers the senator a political recluse, along with the oth er gold Democrats because side tracked by the Bryan movement. In view of his ability and strength in the hey-dey of his physical and mental powers, it seems unfortunate for the country that Mr. Vilas and his asso ciates should I)** disassociated front the arena of public life for which they have been trained. One eau but believe that some whirl of the politi cal top may land them again in posi tion for action. Ex Sena lor Vilas is tak ing an active interest in tin* affairs of Madison and never appeared in bet ter form.

A list of some of the business ac tivities in which Isaac Stephenson is ihe leading spirit lias lately been put into type by one of his friends: Capital.

Science hal’ at I.awreuee university cost $15,000. lie has given Marinette a driving park and fair grounds, but the 000 library for Marinette is Ills latest and ’.test home gift. His hospitality is boundless. For years he has kept open house during the summer season at his Thunder river farm and resort, hbbui twenty miles above Marinette. Thither he sends parties of about ten to twenty each \\ c< k for an outing and a most detfeht'ill experience it proves to those so fgvored. Last year he pur chased the steam yacht Bonita and kept it busy throughout the season giving free excursions to all comers. Wo had some little misunderstand ing In this section over appointments to do the census work—there lieing nearly sixty in Dane county under A. ,T. Turner of Portage, w ho is in charge of ihe census for this congressional dis trict. but the wrinkles are about smoothed out. In the twelfth cen sus an office force of more than 2,000 for about two years and a field force of over 50.000 for from two weeks to a month will be employed. The Hoi loritli tabulating machines, by which Hie population Is counted and the to tals tabulated, is an ingenious ma chine. Whether ' Indians not taxed” means Indians not directly taxed, or whether it may not mean Indians not taxable, are questions that must be decided by Ttio census office Indore it can form its plan for the ludian enumeration. In .1800 there were about 50.000 civilized Indians living among the general pop ulation of the United States. Such Indians are eitteens of the United States, but many of them are too poor to pay taxes. Are they to bo excluded from the population according to which representation in congress is ap portioned? We count every Chinese and other alien of whatever sort or condition. Before the war we counted every lic^to. slave jjs to Ri white man. It seems urd to believe that the constitution meant to of citizens w ho are also eof their poverty. In lie framers of the con uive said what they did hat they really meant • all Indiana belonging iu ciuoo inn. subject to taxation. A bulletin from the Kansas cxi>eri ment station says, speaking of “black leg.” that the state of Kansas, in 18148. lost at least I\k per cent, of 2,UQ0,00b - cuttle (this is exclusive of milch eowsi.; This would be a loss of 30,000 cattle, w-ith a value of at least 8000.000. This! loss could have been almost entirely j prevented. During .1800, 1807 and 1808 JO per cent, of all cattle owners in Kansas sustained losses from blackleg. In 1800 140 cattlemen re port an average loss of over 0 jer cent.; of tlieir entire herds. Vaccination is j the only successful pteveutive meas ure known. True vaccination consists' iu the artificial production of a mild j form of blackleg from which the aid nial recovers and becomes immune to further attacks, it' properly vaccin ated over !i!>Vh per cent, of susceptible animals can be saved. Despite the periodic effort to gel “business” men and “farmers” into public station, ft rbntalns true that those clever fellows, tb* lawyers, have an Immense advantage ill iwlitu-s —• which is the same thing. The New York legislature has sixty-two lawyers the senate being composed of fifty members and the assembly of 150. As tin* business of the legislature is to x k** and ckange laws it bus always seemed to me that an holiest, comp* tent lawyer makes the ideal legislator. We recognize, however, that the craft has undue proportion of "smart” and "overreaching” fellows (not to offend any), and even the best of them work together to conserve traditions that might well be shattered. So binding is the teaching of the suereduess xif statute and usage that hnvyers nneon scion sly infill* their backs at the men tion of changes, especially that touches their business. There is no trust like the legal pi >?*V*ssiou. If it were not so. Hie Torrens laud title bill; the meas ures to simplify administration of --uinH estates, etc., might not la? dr lnyed until aroused public sentiment fairly takes the bar by the neck and drags ii to its duty. For such reasons it is well to sprinkle a legislature with business men. laboring men and farm ers who are free to heed the plan of argument touching the interests of the bar and the courts. The only way 1:o secure justice for all interests is to have all interests represented. The best men that. God over made, if their standpoint lie the same, will reason blindly, and soon selfishly. It is human nature. 1 repeat, the only way to secure jus tice for all classes atpl interests is to have ill interests represented by them selves. not by somebody else. It is the banner argument for women suffrage.! The religious forces in the state uni versify are praying for a Y. M. C. A. building.

It is very important that grass fields be as smooth as possible, to make ma chine work in haying as.easy as po sible. This levelet* Is a plank twelve feet long, mounted on two shoes six incites wide, to keep the plank from cutting down luto the soil with its thin edge. A single horse should pull this leveler without difficulty, but, of course, one longer and heavier could be constructed which would require a two-horse team, doing faster aud heav ier work. Two old plough or cultivator handles can be utilized for tills leveler, while the shoes can be made from two planks from a worn-out drag or stone boat. A triangular piece of plank nail ed into the augle between the plank leveler and the shoe at either end keeps all the parts united and iu tlieir pro per place. The “dead furrows,” that leave a tioftl so unsightly nud incon venient to mow, can be leveled out by letting one end run ahead of the other, using a long chain in one ring.— New York Tribune. Steeping; Outs for Horses. The nutritive power of oats, llcrr Kafir, a German agriculturist says, may be considerably augmented by steeping the grain in water before giv ing it to horses. 'Tills is h'.s plan: He has three troughs, each of which holds as much oats as will be required for oue day’s feeding. The first day the first trough Is filled with oats an l water at a temperature of 8 degrees C. poured over it, and the whole mass is well j stirred. The water Is left iu tlie trough about six hours, after which it is strained off through a hole in the bot tom of the trough. The next day the operation is repeated in the second trough, and again on the following day the third trough. The oats thus steep ed in hot water get. up fermentation, and at the expiration of forty-eight hours are ready to he given to the horses, and will then, according to Herr Kalff, produce the maximum nutritive effect. Pr.-ninu; in Winter. Some successful fruit growers hold that fruit trees should uot be* pruned in winter, while others pay little atten tion to the season aad “prune when the . knife is sharp.” About one point*, how ever. there can be uo doubt, and ttiis is that it is not advisable to prune when the wood is frozen. Other conditions being equal, winter pruning isprnctic ed by many for the reason that more time and care can be given to the work in winter than is practicable in the hurry of the spring work. Grapes can be pruned any time during winter, if the wood is wanted for propagation, it should be cut just before the severe frosts arrive. Removing Small Stumps. A Each a stout piece of timber to the stump by a Chain and twist it around in a circle until the chain is taut. Then j hitch a pair of horses or a yoke of i oxen to the outer cud of the timber j uui twist tiie stump out of the ground. It will bo necessary to stand by with j an ax and chop off the roots as they 1 appear when the earth is disturbed in ; the twisting process. Enormous pow er can thus be applied to stumps, and j * „\ /It KLiMr: H h yAiy* *£■ - ? for tills reason the chains aud timber must be stout. Protect the Birds. It is much easier to destroy birds i than insects, but as the number of birds Is reduced the iusects multiply. The wren is a very useful bird and may be induced to remain near dwell ing houses if boxes arc provided for them, out as they are nuable to con tend against English sparrows the en trances to the wren boxes should not lie over an inch in diameter, as the . wren is very small, and can protect it- I self by going where the sparrow ean ! uot follow. Every encouragement ! should be given birds by feeding them I and providing suitable places for their i protection and accommodation. Loss of Graiu. A iolc in the granary, through-which tlie graiu would be lost, would not be aiiov.-ed to exist very Jong after its dis covery. A bolo in the stable, through whMi the cold air euters and.chills the I animals, causes a loss of grain Just as surely as the hole in the granary, as ; more tood will be required to assist the animals in maintaining warmth. It is j the tilings that are unobserved which sometimes cause loss. When the flow : of milk is* reduced, or the animals do j not make gain proportionately to the food allowed, tiiere is always a cause, and it should be sought. feeding Pigs. Fattening the pigs demands care as well as corn. To derive the most in Hie shortest period of time ihe pig should be comfortable and contented. Food may be given three times a day. aud, in addition to corn, a mess of ; bran and milk or cut clover hay, scald ed and sprinkled with bran, may be al lowed. If a variety of food is the rule the pig will make greater gain, because its wants will be satisfied. If the pea is kept cleau and dry there will lie a gaiu iu weight, as dampness causes cold, aud more warmth from the food will then be required. The Value of Rotted Manure. While during tbe winter is on<_ of the best times to haul out and apply ma uure in the garden, care always should be taken to have it thoroughly rotted and flued before applying. There are three reasons for tbis-oue i is that If the manure is well rotted it ; will be free from weed seeds that will I germinate. If it is thoroughly fined it can be readily aud thoroughly incor porated with tbe Boll; and, being rot ted, It will be In a more available con dition for the use of the growing plants, with the additional .t.dvantage that it will uot Interfere wKh the thorough preparation of tbe soil before planting *>v in the cultivation of the growing plants afterward. '1 here is no danger of making tbe garden too ric-h, hence manure can be applied liberally.-—Farmers' Voice. Age of a Horr.

As time goes ou tlie horsemen knew tilt- oral teeth three sided grow; 10ll *er get, project before, till twenty, when we know no uioi Blacksmith aud Wheelwright. To Secure a Constant Egg Yield. 'J lie hardest task iu maintaining a constant and continuous egg yield is to keep tlie laying stock in prime con dition. This means such it eouditiou of perfect health that the eggs will uot only be laid regularly, but (bat they will be of uniform size, according to the breed laying them. Under such conditions we should have large eggs i from Mlnoreas, Leghorns, Fly mouth ; Bocks aud Brahmas. When such breeds ; lay small eggs, abnormally large eggs with perhaps double yolks or soft she’ *d eggs, the stool; is out of condi tion . .id usually overfat. Tlie eggs will thus be laid irregularly, and many times laying will stop entirely. Layer? should be kept active, aud activity is induced by sbon feeding. A hungry hen is usually a good layer. Baling Clover Huj. It is claimed that clover hay may be baled in the field, but the experiments | made are not sufficient to show' the ! Itenefits derived compared with storing j clover in tbe mow. Tbe clover is cut in the morning, after it is free from dew or raiu, and when well wilted the hay tedder is used, so as to give It every chance to.cure. In the afternoon the bay is baled and battled to the b: n. If this method is practiced care must l>e exercised iu having tlie hay proper ly cured ami in just the proper condi tion for baling as baled clover is more liable to beat than timothy or other kinds. lCn yiish Cross-Bred Lamb. Winner of a number of first aud j champion prizes. Silage Crops. The reports concerning sweet coru for silage are quite conflicting, says Hoard’s Dairyman. Some say that it has a tendency to make a very sour silage, and jthers claim that it is as unobjectionable iu this respect as any. l'O'we had the sweet coru growing, we would uot hesitate to put it iu silage, but we would uot plant it especially for this purpose; neither would we plant Kaffir coru for silage when tlie ordinary maize grows to perfection. Kaffir coru is especially adaoted for senti-arid climates because of its drought resisting capacity. We are not aware that teosinte has ever been tried iu tbe silo, bat alfalfa has been, and successfully so, especially iu Cali fornia. Horses Will Not Disappear.

If the warm weather has injured the apples it will lie of advantage to over haul them. Examine each apple aud reject all that are uot perfectly sound. If it can tie done conveniently, wrap tbe apples In tissue paper, singly, aud place them ou shelves. If the apples are for market they should not be dis turbed unless necessary, when they may be assorted, the imperfect ones re jected and the sound ones repacked in the barrels. They should then be sent to market as soon as the weather per mits. It is a waste of labor to send ap- tes to market that are in the least dejjree Injured.

BABU ENGLISH *S IT IS SPOKEN. Marvelous Oratorical Effort of un In dian Pleader in Court. Babu English can seldom have ap peared in a more brilliant light than in the following address of an Indian pleader, given in Sir Frank A.

But this Is merp gorilla warfare. 1 stand under the shoes of my client, aud ouly seek to place my bone of contention clearly in your hon or’s eye. My learned friend runs amuck upon the sheet anchors of my case. Your honor will be pleased enough to observe that my client is a widow -a poor chap with one postmor | tem son. A widow of this country, ; your houor will be pleased enough to i observe, is not like a widow of your | honor’s country. V widow of this coun try is not able to eat more than oue meal a ciay or to wear clean clothes or to look after a man. So my poor client *bas not such physic or mind as to be able to assault the lusty complainant Yet she has been deprived of some of her more valuable leather—the leather of her nose. “My learned friend has thrown only an argument ad hominy upon my teeth that my client’s witnesses are all her own relations. But they are not near | relations. Their relationship is only j homeopathic. So the misty arguments j of my learned friend win t>t hold wa | ter. At least, they will not hold good water.

It is claimed ly naturalists that the day of the zebra is fast passiug away, and that before many years the zebra, or quagga, aud its sister species will be an extinct animal. The greed of Ou tral Africa settlers lias bad much to do with this, since thousands of the ani mals have been slaughtered for their skins, which could once be sold for a few’ shillings. The result has been that the market price of the zebra lias con siderably risen of late. THE EARLY APPLES. Very Ancient People l'e*l Wild Apples and Pears Abundantly, In these days of advanced horticul ture the fruit of the wild apple (Pyrus lualus) anti of the wild pear (I*, com munis) would hardly lie regarded as “good for food;” but It is certain that in ancient times they were both largely used. In the lake dwellings of Switzer land and Italy great quantities of wild apples and a few wild pears have been found. "Tho inhabitants of the terra mare of Parma, aud of the palafittes of tho lakes of Lombardy, Savoy aud Switzerland," says Do Candolle, “made great use-of apples. They always cut them lengthwise, aud preserved them dried as a provision for the winter. The specimens are often carbonized by tire, but the internal structure of the fruit is only the more clearly to be distin guished.” Aud from a scientific exam ination of these carbonized specimens it seems to be established that many of these ancient apple 1- were almost iden tical with the wild apple of to-day. But even in the sixteenth century the crab apple of our woods was held in far higher esteem than it is now. "Roasted crabs,” served with hot ale, was. as we learn from Shakspearc, a favorite disc among our fore fathers, especlalll at Christmas time. Another use of the crab apple w as In the making of verjuice, of w hich mention is made by good old lzaak Walton in his “Com pleat Angler:” “When next you come this way.” says .ne honest milk woman, “if you will but speak the word 1 will make you a good syllabub of new verjuice, ami you shall sit down in a haycock aud eat it." But we dou'i care for such rustic deli cacies now.—Longman'o Magazine. Iron Preserved from Bust.

It Will Linger u>„ K in thc Memory of a Surgeon, “What was the strangest ease I ever had said ouo of the surgeons in at tendance at the late convention, repeat ing the question of a reporter with whom he was chatting. “Well, let me see. I believe tho oddest incident of my career occurred In—but hold; ou second thought I don’t care to give any names or dates. The facts, if you like, were these: I was called by messenger to a cheap boarding house one eveniug to attend a man who was said to have been hurt in a tight. I found a young fellow of 25 or thereabouts, half dazed, with a bloody contusion ou one of his cheeks and a badly broken nose. The bridge was smashed almost flat with the face, and I saw at once that tho ease would need very carerul handling to prevent great disfigurement. Not to bother you with technical details, I confined myself that night to a superti eial dressing, and deferred further pro ceedings until next day. When I called the following morning the young man had quite recovered his senses, aud al though his clothes were shabby aud all bis surroundings i>oor aud meati, it was evident from bis hands, talk and bearing that he had never done any hard work aud was a person of educa- I tlon and refinement. 1 took him for the blaek sheep of some good family, but made uo comments, and explained oriefly that 1 would try to restore' his nose as far as possible by performing a slight operation and inserting an arti ficial support. To tuy astonishment he objected flatly, and insisted ou letting it heal exactly as it was. ‘But you will be frightfully disfigured,’ l protested; 'l doubt if your best frieuds would rec ognize you.’ Strange to say. that as [ suranee seemed to reuder him only tho | firmer, and I was compelled to let him i have his way. It was nearly three weeks before he w as well, and, as . an ticipated, lie looked exactly like some battered bruiser of tlie prize ring. I never saw tbo man again, but six mouths later 1 was shown the photo graph of a handsome young chap who was badly wanted for a big embezzle ment. 1 put my finger over the nose aud recognized my late patient. He had walked aboard ship right uuder the eyes of the detectives and sailed for the Argentine Republic. They had his photo, but never drea tied of con necting it with the eaved-iu counte nance of that particular passenger.” “Did lie get somebody to break his nose on purpose?" asked thc reporter. “I never ascertained,” said the surgeon.— New Orleans Times-Demoerat.
