Decorations of the Daughters. The aggregate value of the jewels worn by the Daughters of the Ameri can Revolution at a recent reception in Washington is said to have ex ceeded $500,000. Estimates of jewels are always liable to large deductions, but it may be said that if the fathers of the revolution could at certain periods of the struggle have had $50,- 000 worth of ammunition at their command they could have shortened the war by two years or more. —Bos- ton Transcript.

By all means keep your ewes healthy And vigorous, for upon a healthy, thrifty condition of ew-es depends yAr success. The healthy ewe is able to live on rougher forage than your other farm stock, but it is with sheep as with all else. You must give them some at tention if you expect profit. Men, who every <*mson make money nrom their lambs, find that if they feed An Ideal Flock Header. them better for several weeks and flush the ewe stock each fall, that is, before going to the buck, there are more twins and -more milk at lambing time. Many of the troubles with weak iambs and empty udders would be avoided if your ewes were fatter when brought in for the winter. Try the plan of flushing your ewes, then follow with good pasture and you will see from results that the plan makes most profits. Have a dry, well sheltered roomy yard, with deep shed for the ewes. If you have neighbors with dogs, have a tight, stout woven wire fence with board at top and bot tom around the sheep fold. Keep the sheep in this yard at night—this will save your sheep, as well as your temper. HANDY DOOR FOR HOG HOUSE Practical Arrangement of Passage Way tc Keep Larger Animals in and Little Fellows Out. A simple method of arranging a door for the hog house is given in the Practical Farmer. The illustration gives a good idea of its construction. Use 2x4s, putting raw sides toward the door. In the 2x4s bore a few Wlii aiffras Door for Hog House. holes, inch or larger. In these put an Iron rod, or a fork handle to hold up so pigs can walk under and hogs can not. The rod will hold up door and prevent sow from lifting door. Nail boards on each side of 2x4s to slide door in. SHOULD NOT NEGLECT COLT If Youngster Is Properly Handled From Beginning It Will Not Give Much Trouble. The farmer owning 40 acres or oore of land, who does not raise at least one colt every year, is not doing Sis best. The mare will do most kinds jf farm work and raise her colt with du 1 much loss of time. If the colt is properly handled from the beginning It will not give much trouble. Never illow it to run after its mother when she is working. This worries and frets the mare, ind it wears out the colt. Keep it at the barn, loose in a box stall, and tempt It with a little clover hay and 3ats. Early colts will be weaned pret y soon now. If they have been brought up to this point right, wean ing does not mean much. Feed more requently with sweet ciover hay, oats ind corn, and the colt will soon be kble to take care of itself. Keep it in the barn at night and allow it to run with other young stock In the pasture luring the day. Mulch Small Fruit Vines. A successful West Virginia rasp i berry grower gives the following rea sons for mulching: It prevents the growth of weeds. It ads humus, one of the necessary elements. It keeps the fruit clean aud prevents mud at picking time. It saves labor, the cost of mulching n acre with forest leaves or straw not exceeding sls. It prevents deep freezing. It makes the fruit more solid for cul tivation and better for shipping pur poses. It prevents the baking of the soil taused by tramping at picking time. Feeding Hogs. It is Dest never to feed hogs on the ground. It is no more natural for a j hog to pick his feed up out of the dirt and mud than for any other animal to 3o so. although circumstances have in many cases forced him to do so. Have Boors on which to feed hogs, and not .miy will you save feed by using tb*>m, aut they will appreciate their rations much more. The Sheep Farm. You can generally tell a sheep farm by Its neat appearance. The sheep keep the corners pretty well cleaned ip. For Stunty Pigs. For stunty rigs try giving a tear spoonful at a dose 3 times a day in their feed equal parts gentaic, gin ger, quassia, and bi-earbonate of soda, mix thoroughly, give plenty of salt ind extra feed.

FATTENING VALUE OF PEA'S For Use With Cattle Crop Probably Is Unexcelled—Make Good Food for Horses at Work. TBy PROF. THOMAS N. SHAW ) There is no kind of live stock ot. the farm to which peas cannot be fed with positive advantage when they are to be had at prices not too high. They are not commonly fed to horses, since they can seldom be spared foi such a use, but they make a good food for horses at work, and for colts during the period of development, il given as a part of the grain food. Asa food for fattening cattle, peas are probably unexcelled. Much of the success which Canadian feeders have achieved in preparing cattle for the block has risen from the free use of peas in the diet. Durinc the first part of the finish ing period they will be found peculiar ly helpful in making beef, owing to their relative richness in protein, bat they are also a satisfactory food at any stage of the fattening process. During the first half of the finishing period peas will be found superior to corn, but toward the close of the same, corn could probably tr fed with greater relative advantage. Peas with oats or bran make an ex cellent grain food tor cattle that are being fattened. Speaking in a gen eral way, peas should form about one third, by weight, of the meal fed, but, as every feeder knows, the relative proportions of meal used should vary somewhat as the season of fat tening progresses. MAKES SLOPPING HOGS EASY Pen so Arranged That Animals Cannot Get at Trough While It Is Being Filled or Cleaned. I have a hog pen with trough so lo cated that the hogs cannot get at It while it is being filled. To make such a pen take corner posts of 2x4 and nail on lengths of Ix 4 or Ix 6 for sides and For Feeding Hogs. ends, w rites N. S. Widders in the Mis souri Valley Farmer. Make the usual V trough and nail securely to the bot tom board at one end of pen. Instead of boarding up the pen tight at the trough end leave an open space the length of trough, with a board across top and bottom, then make a gate and hinge to the top board on the inside. Take a short length of stout wood for a latch and bolt to the second board of gate, with one bolt. When you want to fill the trough turn the latch until it misses the trough, push the gate in till latch is beyond trough inen turn latch to upright position again. The hogs cannot bother you while you are cleaning the trough or pouring in the feed. Foid for Pigs. An experiment on two lots of pigs of the effect of fteding bulky as com pared with more concentrated food during the early growth of the pigs on the general gain in weight, and on the shrinkage of the pigs in dressing. The difference in richness of the ra tions was brought about by feeding more or less corn meal in proportion to the skim milk. Those on the nar rower rations gained faster and ate less dry matter per pound of gain than those on the wider rations, but the shrinking on dressing was the same with both lots. Castrating the Lambs. Buyers would rather have castrated lambs. A ram lamb soon begins to get coarse, and if not sold promptly worries himself and the rest of the flock. The work should be done while they are from four days to three weeks old. Keep a pail of good disinfectant handy for treating the knife, the hands and the wound. Castrate in the morning so that the lambs will take some exercise and help wear off the soreness. f live sroc.Ki A hog simply will not be responsible for poor fences. There is no better place to raise pigs than in a good pasture. There is no animal that responds so quickly to good feed and treatment as the pig. How much per bushel can be made from wheat by feeding to hogs? In what way shoved It be fed? Almost every wrong act of the horse is caused by fear, excitement or mis management, said a great horseman. The Individuality of each horse should bo studied, and the feeds sup plied to meet individual requirements Feed roughage to the stock before giving them grain, as it invigorates and excites the digestive apparatus to action. The pure-bred sire and a dam of the same type of as good blood as it is possible to get will usually bring a desirable colt. Be sure to have some disinfectant to use on the young coh‘9 navel when he arrives. A half minute at this time may save the colt later. Twenty acres of corn put into a silo is said to be worth more than 30 acres put in the crib. This is quite an item, especially when feed is so high. Even the hogs like a variety of feed and will do better if they can get It In eight years out of ten the hog feeder will make money, in one year he will lose and in one break even. This is the year of the even break. Begin to break the colt early if you would have an easy time with the work and a well-broken horse. A two year-old is easier to break than a four-year-old.

Isr r AYS there are that stand heroic upon the cal ■ endar for all time. These .■. M are days honored in com mon by races and nations. |v J/ They are days that en list the particular re spect of nations because 11 they perpetuate the mem hll ories of persons famed for what they have done in one or another walk of life. The ten dency of mankind is to seek to have the fame of the great ones equal in duration with their bestowing upon their fellow-men. There is one day for the American people that stands alone in solitary grandeur, separated in the high flights of glory that en circle it, isolated, yet majestic in the pathos which will ever attend its celebration. That day is Decoration day. In these times, when the peace pipes are as soundful as the pipes of Pan, when the bugle is becoming hoarse, while the herald’s trumpet announces general arbitration treaties to the ends of the earth, in these times, when the progress of mankind appears to be set toward the fulfill ment of the far-off prophecy that swords shall be turned into plow shares and spears into pruning hooks, it is well to lay emphasis upon the day that has the most distinctive glory of any peculiarly American holiday. The glory of Decoration day is that it holds in national hallowing the mighty deeds of brave men. Their deeds will be immortal, who fought not because they had spleen toward (heir brethren —now united in the bonds of a common home, endeavor and destiny—but because they saw a shattered nation wrecked upon the shoals of sectionalism. They will be immortal because the tendency of mankind is to have the fame of the doers of great deeds conterminous with the benefits conferred. The ben efits will be everlasting and augment ing. so that Decoration day, far from having diminished glory when the last of the soldiers of the nation shall have passed away, will have even more honor paid it. The growth of the nation, the working out of its destiny, the recession of sectionalism, the magnifying of the incidents of na tional progress and national purpose —these are all factors in the march of progress that shall forever make hallowed (he day sanctified by mem ories of the blood of the nation’s de fenders. Sad, indeed, the occasion for fratricidal strife, but the working out of the national issues from the glorious battlefields of the nation in its great domestic contest make even the pathos of the warfare elo quent with brotherhood, unity and a common devotion. The ime may come when war will be regarded as barbarism outright, when the closeness of the nations and the identical interests of the powers will be such as to obviate warfare, when the tribunals will exist for the support of all international causes without recourse to war. But the time can never come when the laurels of the warrior will he dimmed. No Great Actor’s Last Play Aackiin'6 Final Appearar.ee Was as Shylock, and Then His Mem ory Failed. Macklin. the famous English actor, made his last appearance on the stage .s Shylock. He came ready dressed for the character into the green room, where all the performers were assem bled and prepared. Looking round he ■aid: "What, is there a play tonight?” All were astonished, and no one an swered. "Is there a play tonight?” he re peated. "Why, sir, what is the matter? ‘The Merchant of Venice.' you know,” said the actress who was to play Portia. •And who is the Shylock?” asked Macklin. Why, you, air; you are the Shy oek.” Ah!" said he, am IT’ and sat down n silence. Fvervone was very much concerned iconoclast ? ill ever arise who will seek to tear down the monuments cf the nen who molded the world's des tinies, using the blood of the battle field as the ctment for their construct ive efforts. Indeed, it is conceivable that the day may come when there can no more be opportunity for military distinction, but this very fact will increase the glory of the ages of heroism. Then the nation will look back to the deeds of the heroes who saved the Union, and they will be honored as living in an age, the majesty of which cannot be underrated by any change of ideas as to the utility of warfare. Hence the tribute paid the dead heroes of the nation's strife will be a less trib ute than any to follow, for every year the meed of praise and the warmth of encomium will be increased, as the widening vista of the past lends addi tional enchantment to the theme. The time will come when every part of the nation, without disparagement to the men who fought on the other side, will unite in acclaiming the men who preserved the nation and made it the mighty leader In all movements for the peace and honor of mankind. War may be all that it has been painted and its horrors cannot be too gravely set forth, but there is a pro found religion in the warfare that re constructs a nation, that re-establishes justice, that sets men free and liber ates the intellect from shackles that fetter progressive thought and pro hibit the full expression of progres sive conduct. The south is blossom ing today in its national fervor and industries teem throughout its do main. The north is clasping hands with all other sections in the move ment of the American brotherhood to ward the highest pinnacle of lofty eth ics and serviceable achievement. The organ roll of American sentiment is heard with deep and resonant melody. All the nations of the earth are learn ing from the united American state, the great federated people of the American republic, the righteousness that exalteth a nation. American statesmen. American educators, Amer ican theologians—all have done mightily toward giving this country its position of prestige in the realm of world affairs, its reputation for pro bity and honesty. But the men who gave their lives for the nation made all this possible. They exalted an ideal that has placed upon the Ameri can people the destiny of necessity to support every oppressed people and to uplift the standard of freedom and moral right. Out from the furnace of the war came the gold of American ideals, out from the blood and strife came the type of American states manship and the type of American sentiment that have caused ibe re public to be looked up to by the peo ple of Europe and Asia as the moral mentor and the efficient ideal for all of them. The work of the men who are honored upon Decoration day is not concluded, will never be. Their souls move majestically onward with the movement of the race, of the age, of the universe. Some day there will and alarmed. The curtain went up. however, and the play began. Macklin kot through the part with every now i and then going to the side of the stage, lifting up his hairs w-ith one J hand and putting his ear down to the prompter, who gave him the word; he then walked to the center of the ’tag* and repeated the words toler ably well. This occurred often through the play. Sometimes he said to the prompter: "What is it? What did you say?" From that time Macklin's great tal- I eats were lost to the public. Hi3 memory gone, he spent most of his t-me in an elbow chair in his home in Covent Garden, where he died. Best Seat in Heaven.

United, glorious and peaceful, with undimmed vision and with unshaken faith in their primary principles, the Ameri can people are one in heart and one in spirit in their purpose to have the Illustrious ideals of the nation made increasingly glorious for the blessing of mankind. it is easy enough after a war has been fought to prove the uselessness of it. It has often been shown how the difference between the north and the south might have been adjusted with such a terrible waste of life and treasure. Grant that within *he de vices of political expediency these preventions were possible, the fact still remains that the wars were fought, that great moral faults were purged, and the God ot battles en forced his ancient law of eye for eye and drop of blood 1 for drop of blood. Children are always bearing the faults of their fathers, and the men and women of ’6O to ’65 poured out of their own veins and out of their own souls an equal portion of blood and misery that their fathers drew from the veins of an enslaved race. No moral debts long remain unpaid. What if the purging was 1 drastic and the throes suffered by the war ring elements brought it staggering to its knees, was not the cleansing complete? The nation stands today the stronger and the sweeter for that conflict. For it was not merely the quarrelsome distemper of war that af flicted the people, but a score of dis eases; not human slavery alone, but factional jealousy, greed, selfishness, state misgovernment and federal abuses. How vastly these have been eliminated can be appreciated only by a study of the injustices of that ante-bellum period. The nation in that memorable struggle was expected by cynical observers in Europe to crumble and fall. But these observers failed utterly to grasp the significance of the struggle that was being fought for national purity and national unity. Instead of perceiving a giant rending himself, as they thought, they were watching a giant wrestling with the evil that was within him. As the day of that conflict ever re cedes, and the din grows less stri dent to the ear, its better significance maker itself felt. The broad page of history teaches a lesson that partici pation in the actual war itself might not have taught. If any soldiers stood in the trenches unmindful of the sig nificance of the struggles in which he was a part, he is not unmindful now as he measures his step to the beat of the muffled drum today. For time has shown all wherein lay the universal meaning of that conflict. The nation was being bled of Its cisternpers, even thiough his veins. And it rose up, weakesed and saddened, but with the courage of the victor and the recolu tion of the chastened. The Real Test.

You will find the child will quickly re cover Its accustomed good spirits, and eat and sleep normally. Dr. Caldwell’s Syrup Pepsin Is far preferable to salts, cathartics and purgative waters which are harsh in their action. Syrup Pepsin acts on thw bowels easily and naturally, yet positively, and causes no griping or discomfort. Its tonic properties build up the stomach, liver and bowels, re storing their normal condition. Druggists everywhere sell Dr. Cald well’s Syrup Pepsin in 60c and SI.OO bottles.
