SOME STORIES OF HOAR
How the Massachusetts Senator
Got Out With Harris.
FORAKEE, AND TILLMAN CORRECTED
Take-off on General Butler, Hoar's
Pet Aversion—Inquiring as to the
"Corporal"—Fits of Absteiituiimled
ncss-The Youthful Culloni and Al
lison.
An incident in Senator Hoar's public
career which occurred some years be
fore the death of Senator I sham G.
Harris of Tennessee is thus described
by a man who spent much of his time
at Washington, says the New Orleans
Times-Democrat:
"The senator from the Bay State and
the senator from Tennessee had been
friends for twenty years and, while
belonging to different political parties
and oi'ten clashing in the senate, talk
ing against each other and voting
against each other, nothing had ever
happened to disturb the intimacy of
the relationship.
"One day some question was up in
the senate which developed a great
deal of partisan wrath, and Senator
Harris had been well to the front in
the debate and had given way proba
bly too much to his Confederate sym
pathy and a certain smoldering prej
udice which he carried to the tomb
with him, lie was attacked, of course,
and in defending the position he had
assumed one of the younger members
took occasion to refer to Senator Har
ris as a major. Senator Hoar finally
drifted into the debate, and in the
course of his remarks he criticised
Senator Harris rather sharply. The
senator from Tennessee did not mind
this so much. But the statesman from
Massachusetts did not stop here. He
began to have fun with the idea that
Senator Harris had ever been a major
and climaxed his scathingly sarcastic
remarks by saying he could not con
ceive the senator from Tennessee be
ing a major, 'unless,' he added, 'he was
a major in the drum corps—a drum
major.'
"The Tennessee senator was stung to
the quick. Ile made no reply. He
would barely speak to Senator Hoar.
One day Senator Hoar was talking to
one of his senatorial associates when
Senator Harris passed. 'By the way,
Senator Hoar,' said the friend, 'you
have wounded Senator Harris deeply
by your reference in the senate a few
days ago in which you compared him
to a drum major.' Senator Hoar was
surprised, for he had intended no of
fense. The next day when the senate
met Senator Hoar rose to a question
of privilege. He recounted the inci
dent in the senate a few days before.
'No man on this floor,' he said, 'has
more respect for the feelings and the
ability of the senator from Tennessee
than I have. I regard him as not only
the greatest practical parliamentarian
in this body, but as the greatest in the
world, and I offer him now our long
continued and intimate friendship as
sufficient evidence that I did not mean
to offend him and I trust lie will ac
cept it.' And so he did. Senator Har
ris shook hands with Iiis friend from
Massachusetts, and that day they left
the capitol together."
General Butler once said in explain
ing- and defending his fiat money
scheme that the word "fiat" meant
"let there be." God said, "Fiat lux,"
"let there be light," and there was
light. 1-Ie argued that fiat money was
excellent from the very fact that it
cost nothing and had no intrinsic value.
So if a bill were lost or destroyed a
new one could be supplied without
cost. Ile also said that it would stay
in the country and would not be sunk
in the morasses of Asia, especially in
China and India, where silver and gold
were absorbed and never heard of in
civilized nations afterward. In answer
Senator Hoar quoted these sentences
with the following comment: "That,
fellow citizens, is precisely the differ
ence between omnipotence and hum
bug. between the Almighty and Gen
eral Butler. God said, 'Let there bo
light,' and there was light. General
Butler says, 'Let there be money,' and
there is—rags. This is the first time in
our history that the American work
ingman has been gravely asked to take
for his wages money it costs nothing
to make, that it is 110 loss to lose, that
it is no gain to get and that even a
Chinaman won't touch."
The relations between Senator Iloar
and all the presidents were, of course,
the most cordial, and the visits of the
Massachusetts solon to the White
House were frequently quite pro
longed. On one occasion Mr. Hoar was
ushered into the president's room, and
Mr. Roosevelt asked him to be seated
in one of the big chairs. Then the
president and tlie senator plunged into
a discussion which stretched out for
over an hour. In the meantime other
senators who wanted to see the presi
dent were held up in the secretary's
room. As time went 011 half a dozen or
more were waiting, and they became
impatient at the delay. Presently Sen
ator Cullom, who is seventy-three years
old, asked Senator Allison, who is also
seventy-three, what was the cause of
the delay. "Why, old Hoar is in there,"
gaid the youthful Iowan disrespectful
ly. "That's just like an old man," said
Cullom. "They never know enough to
do their business and leave. If Hoar
was not so old I would ask him if he
had slept at the White House all
night." Senator Hoar was then seven
ty-six years of age."
Senator Hoar was quite a match for
t he Irish blarney that came his vray a
year ago in Worcester when the oldest
Irish organization in the town did him
honor on his se vom;, •-seventh biitliday.
Alderman McMahou, president of the
United Irish league, declared that the
senator had done more for the Irish
American in New England than any
other man.
"Thank you. sir." responded Mr.
Hoar, "but the handsomest compli- j
ment ever paid the Irish was paid by
Wendell Phillips."
"What was that, senator?" chorused
a dozen voices.
"Phillips in his lecture 011 'The Lost
Arts' or in some other," blandly replied
the Massachusetts statesman, breaking
into a paternal smile, "said there was
nothing new under the sun and that all
the Irish bulls were Greek. Now, by
the same token, I submit every Hiber
nian may claim kinship with Demos
thenes and Phidias."
Senator Hoar's absentmiuded exploit
last year of securing the passage by
the senate of a measure that had al
ready become a law recalls the story
of the senator which is sometimes told
about Worcester. He was at a private
dinner attended by a number of public
men and citizens. One of the guests
had just finished an anecdote, and the
laugh had scarcely subsided when Mr.
Hoar started in, saying that reminded
him of something, and told over again
the same story that the company had
Just listened to. Mr. Hoar's telling
was naturally a great success, for ev
ery one realized at once that he had
been thinking of other matters when
the story was being told the first time,
but had caught barely enough of the
thing to be reminded of the anecdote <
as it lay in the recesses of his own |
mind. It should be added that little
foibles like this have only endeared
Mr. Hoar to the people of Massachu
setts.
Senator Hoar as a member of the
Philippines committee was one of the
most punctilious. Sadly enough, how
ever, some of the evidence presented
to the committee was prosy and tire
some, and the venerable senator fre
quently nodded over the drowsy evi
dence. One time he aroused himself
Just as the witness was talking about
corporal punishment of a prisoner. The
senator from Massachusetts aroused
himself and said, with dignity: "Corpo
ral punishment? I would like to have
the witness state the name of the cor
poral and the regiment to which he
was assigned. This will give us a
chance to get at the facts better." It is
needless to say there was a smothered
smile, and when the circumstances
were explained to the senator he
laughed with the rest.
When some years ago the Boston pa
pers announced the serious illness of
Judge Hoar a group of his friends, ob
serving the senator at breakfast in a
clubroom, hurried over for informa
tion.
"Oh, yes," replied the senator genial
ly, "my brother was ill. His family
were all off, and I was away, and there
was not a person to differ from him.
He was lonely as one katydid without
another to cry katydidn't. I came
back to town, hurried up to see him,
contradicted everything he said, and
we had arguments. Now he is better
much better. He will soon be himself
again."
Senator Tillman pronounces the word
"gyrate" as if the "g" was hard. Ile
says "guy-rate." So does Senator Fora
ker.
When the pronunciation fell upon
the ears of Senator Iloar he shrugged
his shoulders. Being a stickler for cor
rect English, it was remarkable that
he did not express in the open senate
his sorrow at hearing a word mispro
nounced.
"It is 'ji-rate,' " he said later when
some one asked him about the word.
"But," he added, "I haven't the time
to play schoolmaster here."
JOYS OF THE MISSIONARY.
Blnnip<l D'or Drought, tlic Chinese
Boil I ii e 111 In E, ill pry.
Mrs. H. T. Ford of the China Inland
mission, Taiknng, writes to the London
Daily News:
"I told you in my last letter about
the country people blaming lis for
keeping the rain off. They were boil
ing little paste figures (of usi in a great
pot on a fire in the street, old women
saying over it:
" 'Flour from seven homes and water
from eight!
Fire wood from nine homes, boil the for
eign devils!
Press thom down, and 10.000 will die;
Turn them over, and 1,000 will die;
Throw them up, and all will die.'
"(The words rhyme in Chinese and
sound very fine.) It is cheerful for us,
isn't it? But now the rain has come
I expect there will be a respite. In
deed, I heard yesterday that we were
to be killed in three years!"
Three Hundred Skin Pntclie«.
S. II. Tweedell, a young man who
was scalded at the smelter several
months ago, is beyond danger and rap
idly recovering, but his body is a spec
tacle, says a Xorthport (Wash.) dis
patch to the Chicago Inter Ocean.
Nearly 300 skin patches from one to
three inches in length were grafted on
his body.
Mr. Tweedell was caught in a lime
bin and subjected to scalding steam for
twenty-five minutes. The skin grafted
on his body was given largely by Iiis
fellow workmen and his brother Wal
ter.
A Remarkable Timepiece.
A remarkable timepiece is a clock
fan manufactured by a Swiss jeweler.
The clock as described by the Jewel
ers' Weekly consists of twelve leaves
hinged like an ordinary fan. The num
ber of the hour is marked from 1 to 12
at the end of each of these leaves. The
fan timepiece starts at 0 o'clock and
expands regularly for trrelve hours,
when it closes up and starts over again.
HINTS FCa FARMERS
Government Whitewash.
The Washington or government
whitewash is made as follows: Take
half a bushel of «»slacked lime, slack
it with boiled water, cover during the
process to keep in steam, strain the
liquid through a fine sieve or strainer
and add to it a bag of salt previously
dissolved in warm water, three pounds
of ground rice boiled to a thin paste
and stirred in while hot. half a pound
of Spanish whiting and one pound of
clean glue, previously dissolved by
soaking in cold water and then hang
ing over a slow fire in a small pot
hung in a large one and filled with
water. Add five gallons of hot water
to the mixture, stir well and let it
stand a few days covered from dirt.
It should be applied hot, for which
purpose it can lie kept in a kettle or
portable furnace. It is used by the
government to whitewash lighthouses.
A pint of this whitewash mixture, if
properly applied, will cover one square
yard and will be almost as servicable
as paint for wood, brick or stone, and
is much cheaper than the cheapest
paint.
The Brood Sow.
Many of the breeders would not
think of offering a boar or sow for
breeding purposes unless its mother
was three years old and its father
more than one year, says a correspond
ent of American Cultivator. They
think also that the sow which has 011
\ y one utter a year gets the fat in the
interval between her farrowing to pro
duee strong and thrifty pigs. They
the fall
fnay do to fatten when she is not more
than two years old. but after she is
that age they do not consider them
even first, class for that, if she has but
one litter a year. We would prefer
that a breeding sow should have two
litters a year, if we had to give away
the fall pigs as soon as she had wean
ed tliem. and we would not accept as a
gift a pig from a yearling sow or one
that lnul not more than one litter a
year if we wanted one for breeding
purposes.
WinterliiR Cattle.
For wintering cattle 1 am a firm be
liever in the silo, says # New York
farmer in American Agriculturist. I
don't think there is anything else that
yields as much good feed as corn si
lage. la the morning we feed each
cow the silage she will eat up clean,
with about two quarts each of bran
and corn or oats ground, and a good
feed of hay at noon. At night the feed
is the same as in the morning. Our
cows came out in the spring in line
condition. We commence feeding in
soon as the pastures are
short and keep it up until the grass is
large enough in the spring so that the
cattle are satisfied with what they get.
Fee<l For Horses.
Timothy hay is par excellence the
horse feed, says Professor Curtiss of
the Iowa experiment station in Breed
er - s Gazette. This is the case largely
because of its curing properties and its
freedom from dust and mold. If clo
V er hay or alfalfa of prime quality and
free from dust and mold can be se
cured it is much more nutritious and
more economical than timothy hay.
Oat straw of good quality may be used
for horses with excellent results. What
ever the ration used I would advise
grinding the grain and feeding it
mixed with cut hay moistened.
Silngr For Dairy Cuttle.
The feeding of silage very ma
terially reduces the cost of producing
dairy products because fewer acres of
land are required to keep a given
number of cows, less work and ex
pense are needed to prepare cows for
feeding, and last, but by 110 means
least, cows can be made to produce
much luoie during the year by having
them fresh in the fall and feeding
silage in the winter—C. P. Goodrich
in American Cultivator.
She«'i> nnd the Soil.
sheep are the renovators of the soil.
They keep down weeds that would cost
a great deal of time and money to get
rid of in other ways. The health of
the country is much better where they
are used as a part of the farm crop.
Weeds that would be allowed to decay
and rot. which we all know brings sick
ness and death to the human family,
are readily eaten by them.—Farm and
Ranch.
While Holland Turkeys.
One cannot select a better variety
for all purposes than the White Hol
land, says a New York farmer in Amer
ican Agriculturist. They grow to the
most profitable sizes and dress beauti
fully for market. Their light, pinkish
shanks add to their appearance, while
pinfeathers show less than in darker
varieties.
Younjf Versus Old II orb .
The Oregon station fed two lots of
hogs. One lot was eight months old
and the other mature. To make 100
pounds of gain in the young hogs re
quired 425 pounds of ground wheat,
while in the case of the mature ani
mals it required 551 pounds. In other
words, it took 30 per cent more grain
to produce the same gain in the mature
as In the immature ones.
De|>th of Harro» ins.
When ground can be fitted for seed
ing to grass after a summer crop with
out use of the breaking plow the har
rowing should be 110 deeper than is
necessary to give a clean surface and
enough fresh soil to cover the seed.
Firmness of the soil is wanted, su that
the moisture can rise to the sf«-d
Feeding- Lambs.
Wool from lambs fed 011 irrnm from
birth contains more yolk or upn
wool from lambs which liavf had iv
grain previous to the fattening period.

To be a successful wife, to retain the love
and admiration of her husband should be a
woman's constant study. Mrs. Brown and
Mrs. Potts tell their stories for the benefit
of all wives and mothers.
" D ear Mus. P inkiiam : — Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound Tvill make every mother well, strong, healthy and happy. I dragged
through nine years of miserable existence, worn out with pain and weariness.
I then noticed a statement of a woman troubled as I was, and the wonderful
results she had had from your Vegetable Compound, and decided to try what
it would do for me,'and used it for three months. At the end of that time I
was a different woman, the neighbors remarked it, and my husband fell in
love with me all over again. It seemed like a new existence. I had been suf
fering with inflammation and falling of the womb, but your medicine cured
that and built up my entire system, till I was indeed like a new woman. —
Sincerely yours, Miss. C iias . F. B bown, 21 Cedar Terrace, Hot Springs, Ark.,
Vice President Mothers' Club."
Suffering 1 women should not fail to profit l>y Mrs. Brown's ex
periences ; just as surely as she was cured of the troubles enumer
ated in her letter, just so surely will Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Coui!»ouiid cure other women who suffer from womb troubles,
inflammation of the ovaries, kidney troubles, nervous excitability,
and nervous prostration. Read the story of Mrs. Potts to all
mothers : —
" D ear M its. P inkiiam : — During the early
part of my married life I was very delicate
in health. I had two miscarriages, and both
my husband and I felt very badly as we were
anxious to have children. A neighbor who
had been using Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound advised me to try
it, and I decided to do so. I soon felt that
my appetite was increasing, the headaches
gradually decreased and finally disappeared,
and my general health improved. I felt aa
if new blood coursed through my veins, the
sluggish tired feeling disappeared, and I be
came strong and well.
" Within a year after I became the mother
of a strong healthy child, the joy of our home.
You certainly have a splendid remedy, and I
wish every mother knew of it. — Sincerely
yours, M rs. A nsa P otts , 510 Park Ave., Hot
Springs, Ark."
If you feel that there is anything at all
unusual or puzzling about your case, or
if you "wish confidential advice of the
most experienced, write to Mrs. Pink
ham, Lynn, Mass., and you will be advised free of charge. Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound has cured and is curing thousands
of cases of female troubles — curing them inexpensively and absolutely.
Remember this when you go to your druggist. Insist upon getting
