Farmer 5ays Rabbits Are Foes
of Orchards.
"The rabbit is f o.tdUbilioal ani
mal in ibis country. He's a regular
four-footed English sparrow." daclarei
Slate Farmer Charles Mclntyre, of Ohio,
who is up in arms over the State Game
and Fish Commission's plan to pass laws
this winter limiting the number of
"bunnies" hunters may kill.
"Rabbits are doing more to discourage
orcharding in Ohio than any other, fac
tor. Each year they kill thousands of
young fruit trees. As soon as there is a
little snow on the ground they start in
barking the slioots. Farmers can't head
their trees low because the infernal little
nuisances will hop along, rear right up
on their hind legs and nibble off the
young limbs."
Alclntyre is on the warpath. He says
he'll head farmers in a fight against the
proposed Haws.
"There ought to be a bounty for kill
ing them instead of a restriction on
them," he declared.
"Skunks, smell and all, are a boon to
farmers compared to rabbits. They bore
down and destroy the grub worms that
kill out our crops. The only thing that
a rabbit is fit for is to lay Easier eggs."
Profit In Raising Sunflower
Lee Philips, a farmer residing in the
vicinity of Three States, ten miles below
Hickman, Ky., has found much profit
in raising sunflowers for their seed. Mr.
Philips tried the crop more as an exper
iment, the flood having covered his en
lire farm, and ruined his large corn crop,
which he had gotten planted early, and
when finally theaater had subsided and
his ground was dry enough to plant
again, the season was entirely too late
to plant another of corn, so be planted

A Classic From Woodrow
Woodrow Wilson's reply to a body of
suffragists who urged that he recommend
women's - suffrage to Congress, was a
classic, botn in thought and expression
He said:
"Whenever I walk abroad I realize I
am not a free man, I am under arrest.
I am so carefully and admirably guarded
that I have not even the privilege of
walking the streets. That is, as it were,
typical of my present transference from
being an individual, with his mind on
any and every subject to being an official
of a great government, and, incidentally
or so it falls out under our system of
Government, the spokesman of a party.
"I set myself this very strict rule when
I was governor of New Jersey, and have
followed it as president and shall fol.
low it as president that I am not at
liberty to urge upon Congress, in mes
sages, policies which have not had the
organic consideration of those for whom
I am spokesman.
"In other words, I have not yet pre
sented to any legislature my private
views on any subject, and never shall,
because I conceive that to be part of the
whole process of the government, that I
shall be spokesman for somebody, not
for myself. It would be an imperti
nence. hen I speak to myself,. I am
an individual; when lam spokesman of
an organic body, I am a reptesentative.
"For that reason, you see, I am by my
own principal shut out, in the language
of the street, from 'starting anything.'
I have to confine myself to those things
which have been embodied as promises
to the people at an election. This is the
strict rula I set for myself.
"I wanltotay with regard to all other
matters, I am not only glad to be con
suited by my colleogues in the two
houses, but I hope they will often pay
me the compliment of consulting me
when they want to know my opinion on
any subject. One member of the Rules
Committee did come to me and ask me
what I thought about this suggestion of
yours of appointing a special committee
of the House, as tlieSflnate has already
appointed a special committee for the
consideration of woman's suffrage, and
told him that I thought it was the
proper thing to do.
'"So, that so far as my personal advice
has been asked by a single member of
the committee, it has been given to that
effect. I want to tell you that to show
that I am strictly living up to my prin
ciples. When my private opinion is
asked by those co-operating with me, I
am most glad to give it, but ( am not at
liberty until I speak for somebody be
side myself to urge legislation upon the
Animal Should Be Carefully Watched
and Fed on Slop Ration Supply
' Freeh, Dry, Clean Bedding.
A few days before farrowing the
sow should be placed In a clean, roomy
pen In the central hog house or In
special portable house.
When the udder of the sow becomes
distended and milk can be drawn from
the teats she may be expected to far
row In ti hours. She should then be
closely watched and fed a slop ra
tion rather than a dry feed, to keep
her bowels open. She should have
medium supply of fresh, dry, clean,
dustiees bedding. Barley straw or
wood shavings should be avoided.
Little pigs are very sensitive to cold
and it they arrive during cold weather
they must be given special attention.
If a litter Is farrowed In a small port
able house the air may be consider
ably wanned by banging a lantern
from the celling, and doors will add
greatly to the comfort of the animals.
In a large hog house It Is best prac
tice to put the little pigs as soon as
farrowed Into a tight wooden box with
ciean straw and cover the box witn a
blanket The pigs will nestle together
and keep themselves warm. Should
the weather be extremely cold hot
bricks may be put In the bottom of
the box and covered with an old blan
ket with dry straw on top for the pigs
to rest in. Little pigs should be kept
In the box for 24 hours longer, taking
them out for a short time every two
hours to nurse.
A sow should be kept quiet and fed
little, If t all. during the first 24 hours
after farrowing. She may be given a
drink of water, followed by a light
bran mash. The feed Is then gradu
ally Increased np to the tenth day,
when a full ration may be ted. By

Time Will Tell.
A few days ago an Eastern man wrote
a friend in Washington and asked him
whether he thought the Wilson admin
istration a success. The friend replied:
"It is too early to say as yet whether the
administration has succeeded. But Wil
son is a success." ' v
He then explained that President Wil
son is succeeding in donig the thsngs he
promised to do, and added: "Whether
the administration is a success, however,
depends uopn whether the Democratic
phhlosophy is economically correct.
The people took the party at its word.
Wilson is carrying out the pledge con
sistently. The character of Mr.' Wilson
himaelf gives the greatest hope to hi
friends that he will prove to be right.
But time will prove that."
There is no denying that the President
has won the country by his sincerity in
doing what he promised to do and accept
the full responsibility the people placed
on him hence personally he has sue
ceeded. The big questions to come np
during tbe next three years are ques.
tions about which even big men differ.
If the Democ ratio attitude on these
questions proves to be correct by actual
application, the Democratic administra
tion will have been justified. If the
Democrats are proved to be wrong in
their economic policies, then, .of course.

the outside half of the box and runs
through the small opening slowly,
says the Wisconsin Agriculturist
Grain is thus fed more economically
and to greater advantage, as It can
not be bolted quickly by the hungry
or over eager horse. A slide on the
outside can easily be arranged to reg

which the grain passes to the Inner

True Love.
The course of true love never did and
never can run smooth. If it did it would
not be true love. The single certain sine
qua non of true love is that it shall not
un smooth. For such is tbe constitu
tion of human nature.
When people set out to be friendly and
congeoial they can succeed only by keep
ing up a gentle hostility. Consider the
average evening call. How tiresome it
is untifsome one starts an argument, or
game of cards is proposed. That ac
counts for the popularity of games. They
furnish a sham and innocuous hostility
ilbout which society with one's fellows
is deadly. Men and women can be happy
together for days at a time U tbey are
contending at golf at tennis, at cards or
around drawing

" Uncle Sam's Farms.
The opening of the Fort Peck Indian
Reservation recently was called one of
the last great drawings of land Uncle
Sam can bold; he is not nearly at the
end of his spare land, however.
There remains 65)2,000,000 acres of
public lands. More than half these are
in Alaska, but there is in the old United
Slates enough land to make ten States
the size of New York.
Rather more than enough land to
make a Connecticut, Massachusetts and
Rhode Island was patented in the fiscal
year of 1911-12.
The remainioing land if it were all
available, would support a sparse grain
growing population of 15,000,000, not
countihg some millions more in the cit
ies created thereby: or a denser farming
population of 60,000,000.
Of course, it is not all available. Much
of the land will apparently always re
main worthless. Much can be made
useful by drainage, dry-farming, terrac
ing or irrigation. Tbe proportion of
land so reclaimed will depend upon eco
nomic conditions and the pressure of
population. But there is certainly room
for some millions more of farming pop
ulation upon public lands.
