Columbus, O., Nov.- 4.—The apathy
that has prevailed during the present
campaign continues to the eve of elec

in larger cities, unusually indefinite in

lack of interest have put the leaders to

Braddock Republican: Mrs. Paul
Muench, of Williamspart, had an ex­
perience one day last week that was
very trying to the nerves, and not soon
to be forgoitten. She wanted to go to
the potato patch to dig some potatoes,
and ithe only mode of transportation
then at hoanie was a supposed gentle
pony and a atone-boait. Necessity is
the mother of invention—'Mrs. Muench
nailed a a box to the boat, place^l her
baby in the box, hitched up the pony
and Eitarted. All went well until the
party started to enter a ravine, when
the stone-boat ran easily, the single
tre liit the pony's heels and trouble
began. In lunging about the pony
got awayf rom the lady and started
across the prairie at a rate that un
doubbfedly made Baby Muench think he
was going to a fire.
The mother's
anxiety as to the welfare of her little
one can be beifcteir imagined than de­
scribed, and especially so after the rig
and its precious load had gotten out of
sight in the hills and ravines. The
pony finally piulled up at the ranch of
Levi Wright, and that gentleman
eaugbt the animal." He found the
baby right side up in the box and ap­
parently none the worse for its fast
ride. Mr. Wright immediately re­
turned the youngster to its anxious

Many off the Tribune's subscribers
are doubtless also subscribers to the
Pioneer Press, and in calling attention
to and coimplimieniting thait paper on
the newspaper par excellence that they
have been geltting out, we are but echo­
ing the opinion of every person who
has had the pleasure or reading that
very admirable sheet. Oif late the
Pioneer Press has given more
to thenews of the northwest and a
greater space to sporting news, and
has changed the make-up of the paper
so as to tenable the reader to find at a*
glance just ithe news he seeks. The
brighltest and cleverest writers at the
twin cfties are requisitioned to make
a paper ithait will fairly bristle with
niws noil-(partisan and complete. Edi­
torials that axe clean cut, broad and
fair. Special stories and features
that must appeal to and interest every
person who reads them. In fact at
every point the Pioneer Press is a news
paper and one that all the northwest
may well be proud of and submit in
comparison with any paper published
in any part otf this broad country.
In addition to a most generous -and
attractive display in black-and-white
and colors otf fashions and millinery,
the December Designer pays full hom­
age ito the Christinas season in its lit­
erature and illustrations. It contains
two clever short stories, "Where the
Chrisitmas Tree Grows Wild," by Har­
riet A. Nash, and "A Traveling Christ­
mas Tree," by S. E. Benet a Christ­
mas comedy, "Hands Up!" by William
Lincoln Balch "Charities for Chil­
dren," by Walden Fawcett, and
"Christinas Carols and Their Compos­
ers," #y Phebe W. Humphreys. M. G.

The Engineering Magazine for No­
vember has for, its leading feature a
very finely illustrated article by Philip
Dawson on "English,-American, and
Continental Steam Engineering." The
subject matter is very important, in
view of the rapid rise of competition
and the internationalizing influence on
practice exercised by ithe electric-trac­
tion power house. Mr. Dawson is
thoroughly familiar with the best work
do»e on both sides of tht Atlantic, and
writes plainly, frankly, and fearlessly.
He deals especially with British en­
gine-types, and will take up American
and Continental practice in succeeding
A specially interesting feature of the
November number of Keith's Maga­
zine is an article on suburban homes,
in which the writer says: "Another
why it is a solemn thing to
build a house, is that it adds another,
one to the community." "From Cave
Castle" is also continued. There
is- illustrated a church which- can be
built for five hundred dollars, a beau­
tiful Minneapolis home, 'several mod­
erate cost houses and an elegant ce
mentine mansion with the usual de­
partments on the.decorating and fur­
nishing of a home.
The leading article in the November
Forum is a character sketch of the new

other things he notes that Mr. Roose­

has a more comprehensive and inti­

had any of his predecessors, and has
also seen much of Europe. He is,
again, the only president who served

Value of Good Stock, and Compara­

The rapid increase of the cattle graz­
ing and feeding industry that extends
throuhout nearly, if not quite all the
slope country, seems to have given rise
to a fear that the sources of winter
forage will coon become seriously en­
croached upon if not entirely ex­
While the high values that have ob­
tained for the past half dozen years
fciT all meat producing animals, coupled
with the superior graziig and feeding
facilities that prevail in the territory
mentioned have combined to greatly
stimulate the cattle and sheep grazing
industries, and the numbers of such
animals that are kept on our farms and
ranches have increased about fifty fold
during the past decade, there is still
room for .many more.
Still should we be confronted by
siuch an contingency as is mentioned in
•the opening paragraph, attention could
and doubtless would be directed to
the production of horses, which are
said to require less range, for the rea­
son that they crop the grass much
closer and eat with relish many kinds
otf grasses that calttle will not touch.
Then again, when it comes to winter
feed, while calttle and sheep must be
carefully housed and fed, when the
ranges are covered with snow, mem­
bers of the genus equine will not only
find their own forage by pawing away
the snow, but will (thrive and grow fat
on the grasses that have been cured
after attaining maturity, and are
thus much more nutritious than grass
cut while green and cured for hay.
0-f course the succession otf the horse,
car by the more modem electric trolley
has closed the market of the small
horse otf inferior quality but the light
horse otf symmetrical conformation am
stylish aotion, when properly broken
and mannered, was never in more ac­
tive demand or of greater value than
now. In fact quality is ithe great de
cideratum in large or small horses, as
in" any other commodity of commerce.
In making a comparison in the mat­
ter otf cost of feed and care of the two
kinds otf stock—-horses and caittle—it
is found that a horse can be kept until
a 5-year-old ait a somewhat less cost,
than a steer at three years old. To be
sure the^dam otf the horee has cost
much more than that otf the steer, and
'the sire relatively still more but the
product off the former will sell for
nearly or quite double that of the lat­
A veiry close observer in matters per­
taining to the production of horses in
the northwest is authority for the state­
ment that during the past decade, dur­
ing the major portion of which the
horse industry suffered from extensive
depression in values, small interest has
been taken in the selection of sires,
particularly with respect to draft
breeds, and mares have gone to the
service of inferior sires. During the
past four years this has not been due
to any lack of awakening of interest
in the business, but because the prices
Of good sires have been thought to be
too high by owners of brood mares,
and would go lower. No greater mis­
take could possibly have been made.
When the great depression in values
ensued whfch followed the panic of '92,
not only were many highly bred and
promising colts that would have grown
into sires of great value under other
circumstances sacrificed to the sur­
geon's knife, but there was a cessation
in breeding of this class of horses as
well as all others. And notw that the
interest in breeding is awakening the
supply is nowhere near adequate to the

character when 'compared to many
sales otf light harness horses that have
been made in this country.
And while this country mugt still
seek the material with which to im­
prove the blood of its breeding animals
in foreign lands, the foreigner has
learned to ccane here to get horses for
commoner usies. Excerpts are made
from a report by the agricultural de­
partment at Washington which show"
that the value of the horses exported
from the United States in 1S95 was $3,
500.000, which has gradually increased
until a sum a little more than double
that was reached in 1000. The tiurn
bars exported has likewise increased
from 25,120 in 1890 to 04,722 in 1000
The total for the five seasons is nearly
a quarter of a million horses, and the
aggregate price received around $27,

head—all in six years. It should be
borne in mind that foreigners will take
only the best, and as their purchases
will, for reasons that are obvious, have
a great influence in fixing the standard
of values as well as quality, great care
should be exercised to produce none
but 'the best. And this can only be
done by the selection of well bred sires

Tbe Japanese Trick by Which It la
Acconip) iiilied.
The Chabo Hiba, a dwarf Japanese
pine tree, was recently sold for $1,200.
It is six feet high and alleged to be 850
years old. It has long been supposed
that the process by which Japanese
gardeners succeeded in dwarfing forest
trees was a long and costly one. It is
now said that it is a simple process and
.that any one can do the trick. The fol­
lowing directions are given for produo
ing a miniature oak tree:
Take an orange and scoop out tlx?
pulp. Fill the interior with a rich moid
and plant an acorn in the center of it,
leaving the hole in the rind for it to
sprout through. Put it in a sunny place
and water it frequently. Soon after
the first shoots have appeared the ro:ts
begin to break through the orange skin.
Take a sharp knife and shave these off
carefully and keep them shaved. The
tree will grow about five or six inches
high and then stop. In a year it will
be a perfect miniature oak. When the
roots cease to grow, the orange shin
should be varnished over and imbed­
ded in a flowerpot.
The Japanese dwarf all kinds of trees
and make them live to a great age.
Some of these dwarfs, like the Chabo
Hiba, are well known, and their own­
ers have documentary evidence attest­
ing their great age. The older they
are the more valuable, of course,: the}
1 are. in Japan certain families follow
the calling, trade art, or what yon will,
of growing dwarf trees from genera­
tion to generation and you can buy a
miniature-oak 600 years old tram a de­
scendant of the man who first planted
tbe acorn. Mot only forest txees, but

Methodist Church Has NarrOw Es­
cape from Destruction by Fire
Sunday Afternoon.
Fire From an Overheated^' Fnrna£&
Burns Joists and Flooring and,
Threatens Buildings
Prompt and. Efficient Work by the
Fire Department Prevents Des
truction of Church.
The Methodist church, at the corner
ctf Fourth, and Thayer Streets, had a'
narrow escape from destruction by fire
Sunday afternoon. In the high wind
that was blowing during 'the afternoon,,
fire caught froan the furnace in the
joists beneath the .flooring, and for
scone time the fire department was
baffled in its efforts to reach the fire.
Before 'the fire was discovered, the
basement and 'the interior of the
church were so filled with smoke that
it was impossible to enter either pant
of the church. Smoke rolled forth in
clouds from the basement, «nd drifted:
through the side walls and roof of the
building. The fire being in the base­
ment and all the doors and windows of
the building beiag closed, the fire ob­
tained no draft, and for some time the
woodwork smouldered without burst­
ing into flame, and no evidence otf the
fire was visible except the smoke which
rolled out in great clouds.
Thte fire department responded
promptly to the alarm, and did gallant
service in confining the flames to the
joists and timbers oif the flooring.
When it was found impossible to enter
the building, the fire was fought from
the front and back entrances to the
basement. Two streams of water were
used, and the fire in the basement was
literally drowned out. J. P. Jackson,
entered the church from the back door,
crawled about half way to the front of
the church, saw that there was no fire
in the interior otf the church, and the
doors were opened to clear the smoke
from the interior otf the church edifice.
This being done, shut-off nozzles were
taken into the church and the remain­
ing fire was soon extinguished by
stream of water poured through the
registers in the floor. The fire was
fought scientifically and carefully,
with the result that when it was ex­
tinguished, there was little damage to
the furnishings in the church from
water, and except for the carpet,
which was water soaked in the vicinity
of the registers, little of the furniture
was damaged.
It is supposed the fire originated
from the furnaces. The last services
at the church were completed at a little
before 2 o'clock, and the fire was dis­
covered less than an hour later. The
intense draft given the furnaces by
the high wind, is supposed to have
overheated the pipes and fired the ad­
jacent woodwork.
The Methodist church is one of the
large church edifices otf the city. The
interior was recently refurnished and
refitted, new steel ceiling put in place
and other improvements made. There
will probably be some damage to the
decorations from the smoke, but other­
wise the damage in the interior of the
church is fortunately light. The
building is insured for $1,500, whicb
will cover al^the damage, the prin­
cipal otf which is to the floor and floor
joists which will have to be relaid in
some places. The basement was halif
full otf water when the firs was extin-,
guished and the coal and wood stores
there was afloat
