It was net the aim of the framers of
the McKinley act that the prices of
farm produce should be cheapened, says
The New Yerk
Tribune. On the
Connecticut contrary, it was
Prespemty. their earnest ex
pectation that agri
would be benefited by Pretective legis
lation. One of the most striking
results of the Senate Finance Com
mittee's investigation of prices is the
fact that, while there has been a marked
decline in the prices of manufactured
articles in ordinary consumption, there
has been a sharp advance in the prices
of nearly all agricultural products,
especially cereals and meats, barley nnd
vegetables and ether staples. If the
price of wool has declined in consequence
of overproduction throughout the world
American wool-growers have only partly
felt the unfavorable effect. In nearly
all ether classes of agricultural produce
there lias been an advance in the first
price of the farmer.
A striking instance of this general
effect of the McKinley act is given in
our special correspondence from Hart Hart
eord. Prosperity reigns In the Con Cen
aectlcut Valley, where the tobucco tebucco tobucce
igrewiag Interest was menaced with
deetraetlen two years age. Farms
'wfeieh were abandoned are new under
eaKi ration; waste lands have been
rwlalaed; farm buildings have been
improved nnd mortgages pnld off, nnd
as the effect of lilgher prices for leaf
tobacco the industry has received a
new Impulse. The hopes of the Tnrlff
niHkent lmve net been wholly fulfilled,
slnce Sumatra leaf with 10 cent labor
behind It is still imported in the face of
the increased duties; but a very large
nieasure of relief has been nffenled for
the Protection of New England farmers,
and they sorely needed it. Twe years
age they were rapidly being crowded
out of the American market by im
portations from the Netherlands and the
East Indies. Te-day they are enlarging
their acreage in tobacco, and are re
ceiving geed prices for nn Improved
quality of leaf. This is ene of many
Connecticut interests which have felt
the Invigorating tonic of McKlnley
prosperity. It is one of many indications
that the stnte fully appreciates the
benefits of Republican legislation, and
will be found in line with New Yerk in
Ne ember voting for the continuance of
prosperity under President llAimiseN.
C. W. Williams, Esq., our candidate
for Sheriff Is ene of the best men in
Masen county. He has always main
tained a reputation for sterling worth,
and is n gentleman who commands the
warmest esteem of these who knew him
best. He is n thorough business man
and Is without a superior in Masen
county In point of capacity te perform
the duties of Sheriff. He is clever,
popular and strong, anil his election
will be hailed by all with pleasure,
for business coming te his hands will
receive prompt, intelligent attention.
Mr. Williams Is net an offensive parti
san and has received the suffrages
of men of all political faiths, for the
oillce of Justice of the Pence, in the
Mayslick Precinct, which he has filled
with marked nbility and with great sat
isfaction. Let the thoughtful, Intelli
gent people of Masen county carefully
consider the question of the Sheriffalty
and vote for him for he is a thoroughly
geed man and will make a capital
Sheriff. It is a case of the oillce seek
ing the man this time and let us go te
work mid avail ourselves of this chance
te place a geed man in that position.
Net a Tax.
Pkesident Hahklen' is net a man
who deserts a public servant whom he
has found faithful and shose work
"has been highly advantageous te the
United SUites." His emphatic declara
tion, in his letter of acceptance, that his
confidence in Minister Er,AN lias been
amply justified, will net gladden the
hearts of malicious critics who, as the
President pointedly says, wem te think
"that te be a Democrat one must tnke
the foreign side of every International
question, if a Republican administration
is conducting the American side."
TllK Free-trade press has meie te say

conduct in telling the truth about the

falsification of the census. That seems
strange, but it Is easy te supply the
explanation. In this instance the truth
hurts Mr. Cleveland, and the Free
traders are beside themselves with rage.
They begin by calling Commissioner
Peck an intriguing traitor nnd a
ridiculous pcrhen; they lmve ended by
making him out te be a criminal anil a

AN OUT OF SEASON DUCK.
It Wa Bitet by One Hunter unit Captured
It is a well-known fact that human
nature doesn't llke te be laughed at, be
I'll just tell you, as a friend, a llttle
jolie that was played en me by "force
of circumstances." It happened en
Leng Island, says a writer In Ferest
and Stream. I was down thcre wood
cock sheeting many moons age, and en
the evenlng preceding my Intended do de do
parture I was urged te get up before
daylight next morning te sheet n black
duck or two te carry home. I strongly
protested against It, as it was the last
day of September and the law was sup
posed te protect them till the first of
October. However, I stifled my con
science in the face of Buch a tempta
tion as they held out (assuring me that
they had been sheeting them for two or
three weeks) and slipped off quletly
before the break of day te a small pond
In the weeds. I was covered all ever
with a guilty feeling, but "steed my
ground," nnd with the first streak of
dawn I saw a reconneltorlng party sail
ing ever and ene of them tumbled sud
denly into the huckleberry bushes net
forty feet away.
I waited In the frosty air till day
light, and aa no mero came I went te
where I marked my victim down, and
after parting the thick bushes and
hunting carefully for seme tlme I found
him and hastily stuck him into my big
coat pocket, imagining a game warden
watching me from behind each tree. I
hurried back te the hetel, and as it was
nearly train time I ran te my room,
opened my vallse and jammed the duck
In without even looking at him and get
en the curs with about aa guilty a feel
ing as a high-minded, honerablo sports
man ever walked off with.
After getting home and sitting in my
warm nnd cozy room an hour or two, I
rang for the servant and told her
te get that duck out of my valise and
cook it for my dinner.
She opened the valise, dragged out
the duck and then with an ejaculatory
sound that usually indicates a nasty
smell, threw down the duck and rushed
out of the room as If she suspected a
Rut I pretest, even te this day, that I
was innocent of any such intention. It
was merely n mistake.
I had hastily pocketed a duck that
seme ether fellow had shot and lest at
least a week before. It was a cold
morning and the duck was stiff, but I
stupidly overlooked that fact in my
hnste te put it out of sight of the game
wardens, nnd it gave out no odor te in
dicate Its condition till it get comfort
ably warmed up In my room.
I have always thought It best te re
spect the game laws and I mean te
THEY EAT GRASSHOPPERS.
Turkeja Grew I'at In Rlddlnc the Farm
or the Teati.
There is a small rcptlle out west
known as the fence lizard, which
catches and cats a great many grass
hoppers. The species is very common
in the infested regions.
Skunks nre most active enemies of
the insect and have been known te as
cend trees for the purpose of catching
them. Fer obvious reasons it will hard
ly be practicable te enceurage these
particular mammals, but no such ob
jections would apply te toads, which
are apt te swarm wherever the "hop
pers" are, gobbling the latter greedily.
Many planters in California employ
flecks of turkeys for the purpese of
freeing their orchards and vineyards of
grasshoppers. One turkey will destroy
nn almost incredible number in a slngle
day. Incidentally the birds are fat
tened at the cheapest possible rate.
They are se fend of such feed that
sometimes they devour tee many and
die of indigestion.
Common barnyard fowls are likewise
very efficient destroyers of grasshop
pers. In ene case referred te by a spe
cial agent of the department of agricul
ture, an almond orchard containing
three hundred and sixty acres was at
tacked by migrating swarms last year.
The heuse and barn were situated in
the mlddle of the orchard, and the
chickens browsed around them evor an
area of six or -eight acres, which, by
August, looked llke a green oasis in
the desert, the trees overywhere else
having been stripped of their leaves
by the veracious insects.

Locusts have been doing great dam dam
nge in seme of the districts of Cape Col
ony, nnd the legislature has been con
sidering hew te deal with the plague.
Seme of the Cape farmers bcliove that
nothing should be dena The following
clipping is a report of what took place
at a meeting of a vlllage council. It is
from n Cape newspaper: "Mr. S. Orob Oreb
ler said he had heard about the making
of a locust law, and speke in solemn
terms of the godlessness of such a plan.
Mr. I. Circe IT said that if they would
make a law te destroy locusts they must
take Inte account wldch King la their
ruler. Mr. 0. Schccpers speke in the
satne spirit, whereupon the following
motion was proposed by C Schecpcra
and seconded by I. Green: 'Seeing lo
custs are a plague which cannot be
looked upon otherwise than as a pun
ishment sent us from above, this meet
ing most Btrengly condemns the procla
mation of a law for the eradication of
the said plague.' This was carried."
A Choice Ileelpe,
There is a choice recipe, in which the
owl figures, te "make anyene that
sleepeth answer te whatsoever thou
ask," given in "Physick for the Peer,"
published In Londen In 1057. It says
that you are te "take the heart of an
ewle and his left leg, and put that upon
the breitst of ene that slecputh, and
they shall reveal whatsoever thou shall
ask them." The Hindus, however, de
clare that thu flesh or bleed of an owl
will make a person Insane who cats or
drinks It On this account men who
are devoured by jealousy of a rival or
hatred of nn enemy coma furtively te
the market nnd purchase an owl. In
silence they carry It home and secretly
prepare a decoction, which an accom
plice will put Inte the feed or drink of
the object of their malignant designs.
