BKrfc River Movement Bj'vt Tho river movement ot coal, on tlio BjH other ham, shows n much smaller H j ; volume during tho first three months BJH ot 1912 than during tho corresponding HjR i period In 1911.

A decided decrcaso Is also B noted in tho coal movement by way BmI of Davis Island Do in, namely, 315.215 BTII , short tons In tho first quarter of 1912, HiJ ns compared with 1,293,540 short tons BJ9 l during tho samo period In 1911; by 31 , way ot tho canal and falls of tho Ohio l river at Loulsvlllo from'612,02S shor; I , tons in 1911 to 301,844 Bhort tons In BJ J 1912; and by way of tho Kanawha river H t irom 108,780 short tons in 1912 u HJj i 257,540 bhort tons in 1911. Tho river Bjlj ' movement during the month of March, BEjhJ 1912, taken as n whole, however, Bj;Ij shows n slight litcrcaso when couipar H,g! ed with tho movement In March of B the preceding year. Tho falling oft Hf'a in the January nnd February ilor BJ movement of cnnl Is probably due to BJ tho Buerc winter which caused u BJ K Icngor and moro cxtcuslvo suspension Bf I of river navigation than usual.

Weeds crowd tho cultivated plants, depriving them ot light and spaco In both soil and nlr. Tho ration should be balanced to meet the needs of tho cow at all stages of lactation. Sour nnd moldy food should not be lod. Tho fowl's henlth is worth more than tho sour dole. A hen needs nearly seyen times more fresh nlr lc proportion to hti ilo tbnn does tho horse. Selecting tho hens ncfoidliu; to their laying qualities is to some poul tiymcn a hard proposition. Anyone keeping poultry must, of course, have hoiisir to protect them from cold or stormy weather.

Cot the one you Jl'.to nnd then fctlck to It Frequent changes mean failure. Making a Snturday afternoon chore r.t cleaning tho poultry hnuso Is one way of insuring its being done regu larly. An old cloth on tho nursery floor o( tho brooder Is a good precaution to take for the sako of the chicks' feet nnd legs. Tho great advantngo of the who nest is thnt It affords no plnco for vcrmln to hide. Then it is so easy to clean, too. Tho only method of rlddhg the 1 oultry-house nnd nests of mites Is to Ufco strong treatment with a liquid llco and mlto killer, and keep tho pojltry-housc clean. Mrs. William A. Allen, Chacon, New Mexico, had so severe a cough that It nearly choked her to death. Mr. Allen snys: "Wo tried many things without helping her when by good luck 1 got n bottle or Foley's Honey and Tar Compound. It helped her at once and finally cured her It the best medicine we e.ver used." CoOperntlve Drug company.

EXPORTS OF SEWING MACHINES FROM THE UNITED STATES Sowing mnchlno exports In tho current fiscal yenr will make their highest record and will probnbiy ug grcgnte 10 million dollars. Over 16u million dollars' worth have been ex ported from the United States during the 48 years since the official record of their commorclnl movement began of which sum 80 million dollnis' worth, or one-half ot tho total, were exported In tho brief period sluco 1000. Figures compiled by the Bureau ot Statistics, Department of Com merce nnd Labor, Indicate that sow ing machines havo for many years Leen an Important fuctor of tho ex port Undo. In 1864, tho cnilicst year for which u record Is uvallable, tho ex ports amounted to ?1,0Q2,703; In 1872 J2.43G.085; In 1882, $2,047,515; In 1S1H J3.133.992; In 1902, $4,022,607; nnd In 1912 will probably show n lotnl of $10,000,000. Tho steady and substan tial charctcr of tho growth is ovon moro npporont from a study of tho movement by decudes. In tho pcrlo.l from 1SG4 to 1&70 tho exports ot sow ing machines aggregated u llttlo oer 10 million dollars; in the decade 1871-80, 18 million; In tho dccpile 1881-90, 20 million; in the decade. 1891-1900, over 30 million; In the de cado 1901-10, moro than Gl million, tho nvorago yearly jxports having thus Increased from 1V6 million dollars In tho 1861-70 period lo over C million dollnrs in tho decude ending with 1910 vlth indentions that tho current year will record a totnl of approxi mately $10,"000,000. 'Iho countrUa to which these in ci easing exports ot sowlrn; machines nro distributed represent every. grand ('.Ivlslon of tho world. Europe lends nil other sections, laat yenr's exports theroto hnvlng aggregated $1,068,072 in valuo, ns compored with $2,230,227 to South America, $1,0G2,689 to North America, $1,021,951 to Asia and Oc'o nnla, and $53,301 to Africa. Consid ering tho exports to Individual coun tries, Scotland heads tho list ns n mnrket for Amerlcnn sowing mn chines, tho exports thereto in tho fiscal year 19.11 having been valued at $1,436,291. Germnny ranks second, with a totnl of $1,335,183. Tho not largest Inst yenr wero $929,506 to Brnzll, $G10.789 to Argentina, $544. 815 to Mexico, $445,520 to Austrnlla nnd Tasmania, $436,059 to Cannda, $389,406 to England. $364,030 to Cuba, $302,737 to Nothorlands, $241,337 to European Russia, and $240,072 to Japan. In addition to tho foregoing, scores of other countries nro repre sented In various amounts from $20(1,. 000 downward, among them Chile Colombia, Ecuador, Uruguay, Peru, Venezuela and the Gulanas, In South America; Central America and Iho West Indies, In North America; Chi na, Korea, Slam, tnd Turkey, In Asia; tho Philippine Islands and certain British, French, nnd German posses pious, in Oceania; and Egypt, British, Africa, Liberia, nnd vnrlous French, Oermnn, Spanish, and Portuguese col onics In Africa.

Reasons For High Prices For Hides And Leather "Notwithstanding the fact that hides were placed on the free list when tho present tariff law was en acted, there has slnco occurred a rather remarkahic advance In the hide market, present prices being from 50 to 80 per cent, above tho current prices provulllng four years ago, and over 30 per cent, higher -than the prices current one year ago," ssya the Michigan Farmer. "In the spring of 1908 cured or salted hides brought but 7 cents por pound. One year ago the same class ot hides wero 9 xh cents per pound. Selected packer hides for sole leather that In 190b w.ero worth from 9 to 10 cents per pound nro to-day bringing 16 cento per pound. , "Many of the hides used In tho shoo Industry ot this country como from South America, and it was with tho view ot cheapening the cost ot the finished product, made from the thinner hides derived from this source, that this commodity was placed en the free list In the present, tariff law. Yet dry South American hides havo advanced from 15 cents per pound, which was tho prevailing price four years ago, to 23 cents per round nt tho present time. "This advance Is doubtless due to the shortness of tho supply and tho increasing demand. Thcro has been a decided reduction in tho number ot ccltlo maintained in this country, duo to the breaking up ot tho great ranges of the west, the census figures tor 1910 showing a decrease ot about 10 per cent, in tho number of cattle In tho ten-year period slnco the last decennial census.: Tho figures for population during this period show an Increase of 20 per cent. There has also been a large Increase in the demand for leather for now nnd vn ried uses, such as the .development of the automobile, and tho Increase In traveling causes an enormously In creased demand for the manufactir? of leather traveling bags, etc. The world's demand for leather Is also Increasing on account of the decrease in the use ot wooden shoes. "It will thus be seen that raw ma terial for tho manufacture ot shoe.i hns ndvnnced rnpldly In recent yeais. These fncts and figures show tba there Is a basic economic reason for nn apparent Increase In the cost ot living so far as the Items of footwear land other leather products nro con cerned; nn Increase, however, which Is of sufficient benefit to live sto:k producers through the additional value of their animals sold, duo to u larger Intrinsic worth of tho hides, which Is out of proportion to nny ln crenso In tho cost of first-class mnkoi of shoes."
