VERMONT WALLC'JIjUAN & STATE JOUKNAL: WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3, 1896. AGRICULTURAL, Is It Moro Uvorpioiluctlon or Undor coiisiiinption J Umlor thls headlng Hoard's Dairy man uttcrs somo plain truths which nro too niuch ovorlooked ly farmers. Tho cltlu3 nnd tho country nro dopcndent ono on nuothor. It iiinkcs a vast diiler cnco wlth tho farmors of thls country whothor goods nro tnndo in this coun try, silving otnploynioul to Amoricnu workingmon, or whothor thcy nro mndo lu Europe. Wo hopo nud oxpcct thnt tho clcction of McKiulcy will hriug prosperity to tho fnrmors of this coun try. Tho Dairyman snys: "Tho low priccs forbutter havo set a lot of rnou to tnlking nbout tho causcs thnt bavo produccd this stato of affairs. AVith n niajority it is ovorproductlou. This may bc truo to n certnin extont, Jbut it scoma strauL'O thnt no ono lina nuything to 8ay tuot:,. underconeurap tlon. Let ub sco how this uiattor wouni look in tho llght of certnin lucts: In 1892 tho Hoard crenmorlcs wero sup plylug 8,000 faniilies in Chicngo with tholr butter ovory weok. Tiuies woro prospnrous, busiuess wns good and nll tho forces of soclety wero movinc nlong in n henlthy stnte. Thoso 3,000 fani ilies wero prosporous nud wero living well, consuming lots of buttor. Indecd, thoir dcmands woro groattr thuu tl;c cnpncity of tho crcamerics to supply, and that ycar S15.000 worth of butter was bought from outsido creamorics to supply thoir deuiands. How was it iti 1894? Tho Hoard crcamerics wero supplying tho same uumber of families and neaily ull wero idcntictlly tho samo. Hard tiiuos hail come; busincas was dull and rev.enuo wns greaily les acued. Tho housewives bcing re atrictud ns to family oxpenaca, econo mized as to tho butter cxpendilurc, and eo it canio to pass that the 3,000 faiuilioa consuraed 831,000 worth lofs of butter thnt yenr thnn in 1892. This aimply menns undercousuuiption. It also menna that thero is no ninn on enrth who is more intcrested in the busiuess prosperity of tho consutniug claB5.es thau tho furmer. Tho farruer produces food and the raw material for clothing. When eveiybody is busy, wtll pald for thoir labor, they live wdl and dress well. When busincES paralysis provnil', as it has done sinco 1893, everyone makcB ono pound of butter go twice as far as it did in moro proeper oua tirnes. This should teach us as farmers, and especially dairy farmers, not to listen to the chiap deniagogues who would try to make ub beliovo thnt our interests are not bound up in tho prosperity of all other clasees of eociety." Tho Farmers nud 1'olitics, Farmers aro taking as niuch Intorest in politics as auy other class of peoplo. They have learned by snd exporienco that the political adrainistnttion has very much indeed to do with their prosperity. They Iiryo also learned th(t tho 'picBcui admiuistration haa no moro caro for the welfaro of tho tillera of tho soil than it has for tho savages of Africo. Under present condiliona farmers cannot help asking, What of tho futuro? Of the possiblo candidntes for president, which will be most apt to consider tho renl needs of tho farmors? The Ohio Farmer nnawora this ques tion as follows in an editorial which calls attention to the recent appoint ment by Govuuor Morton of Mr. "Wieling as commissiouer of agricul ture, an appointment genernlly con demned, and kuown to have been niade at the command of Boss T. G. Platl: The appointment of Mr. Wieting shows juBt what sort of work tho farm ers might expect in bchalf of (?) agri culturo, ahould Govornor Morton bo elected preaident of the United States. Tho aecretary of agriculturo would bo a moro politician, appointed 'under presBuro.' Tho Eame, it aeems to us, would be truo if Mr. Reed of Maino woro to bo president. He 1 ia not known over to have dono n thing, writ ten a linc or aaid a word that haa mndo tho 8lightest impress ' in favor of agri culturc, or that has indicated that he would appoint a thoroughly competent but ' suro enough ' farmer to stand at the hcad of tho agricultural interests of this vast country. Tho same is true, bo far aa wo can loarn, of all the repub lican candidntes for nomination thua far prominently mentioned, with the excoption of McKinley of Ohio and Al liaon of Iowa. These two, espocially the former, have shown real knowledge of tho vastness and importance ofour agricultural interests and thorough re epcct for tho reprosontativeB and tho clairas of this vast intorest. Of the possiblo democratic candldates wo can nardly speak except to aay that thoso thua far named aa possibilities havo not, in thoir past hiatory, beon in any way prominont for tholr ap. preciation of tho agricultural inter cata, Ilill and Gorman and Whit ney would be more than likely to ap point a Iawyer or a Wnll street 1 farmer' ior secretary ot agriculturo, nnd to loi low Cleveland's oxamplo, in hia flrat torm, of appointing almoat the ontiro cablnot from thnso so far east that they could'Bmell salt wator,' and only ono, and that ono a lawyer, from tho entiro rcgion thnt exporta the whcat, corn, oata, bcef, pork and horees which alono can keep our balanco of trado in our favor with Europe. So far aa tho in terests of agriculturo nro coticorned and that 1b as far as The Ohio Farmer cares to go In political mattors wo hcartily rojoico thnt tho nomination of William McKinley at St. Louis scems alaeady an assured fnct. If noniinnted thoro on n fairly just and liberal plnt form his olection scoms oxcce'dingly probablo." Wo boliovo ovory farmer in Vermont will rejoico to know that McKinley is thua spokcn of by n roliablo uuthority. 27ie Ohio Farmer, liko most of tho flrst clasa agricultural papors, is rcally Indo. peudont in politics, nud what it enys carrles far moro woight than if it wero a party sheet. mw VUWMlUffKT LilJO The umpire now decides that " BATTLE AX" is not only decidedly bigger in size than any other 5 cent piece of tobacco, but the quality is the finest he ever saw, and the flavor delicious You will never know just how good it is until you try it WONDERFUL EFFiCIEIMCY . . .

The laboi'atory iu which maplo sugar ls mado ls not tho ovaporator houso, but tho maplo lcaf. It is thoro that aro combined tho clcuicnts that niako up tho coustitution of sugar. Tho pritno object of tho process is not tho tickling of our palatos, but to furnish material for tho growth of tho trce, as thoso same sugar olcments oxygen, hydro gen and carbon combined in n differ ent proportion, form tho wood, bark, lcnvoB and fruit. Wator is couipooed of osygen nnd hydrogen in cortain iu variablo proportions. Air is oxygen and nitrogen, nnd mixed with it, but not in combination, is carbon in form of carbonic ncid gas, which is a com pound of carbon and oxygen. Tho sap wood of tho maplo is mostly madc up of minuto cclls closed on all sidos, but with walls so thin that llie sap can cir culate through them. Thoro nro also ducts, with tbickor wnlls, reachiug from tho ends of tho rcots to tho lonves, oithor opon or with n fow thin parti tions easily penetrated. The cells and most of the ducts closo up as the wood grows old, so tho circulation is moro rapid in tho newer growth. . By capillary attraction tho ducts, when frco from frost, are constantly drawing up water from tbo ground, holding in solution traces of mineral salts, somo of which go into tho struct uro of tho new growth. The Urst water that riscs in tho ducts in the spring proceeds to wnke up the dor mant buds. After a timo they begin to swell, urgedon by tho growiug wnrinth, and tho pressuro of the water, which flnds in the buds a supply of wcod ele mouts doposited thero tho previous nutumn, diseolvos them and stts them to work, atarting the new growth of leaves and wood above tho buds. Tho lenves soon get their organs in work ing order and tho new year's sugar makinc begins. Tho leaves breatho iu carbon from tho air, combine it with part of tho oxygen and hydrogen of thoduct water, and sugar is tho result. Tbo water tokcs this and starts on its courso dowu the sap wood by way of tho cells, leaving its elemtnts on tho way to thicken the partitions of the old cells and to form new layers of wood nnd bark, but its work does not cnd when it reaches the oartb, for tho large mass of roots must also bo Btipplied with material for new wood, bark and rootlets. Now wo must go back n bit. In tho previous nutumn, in tho laBt of tho growing Benson, tho later products of sap, holding building elements, wero packed awny tightly in tho cells for tho next spring's early uso, so thnt some timo beforo tho duct wator begins to movo tho sun warms up tho trunk nnd thore is n preBsure of the sap to get on its way all tho greater if tho base of tho trunk is frozen, as it usunlly iB in good snp weathcr mornings. Tap tho ireo at this timo and thoro will bo n rush of sap toward tho oponing from ovory layor of wood penetrated, but it will bo a grndual movement, for tho multitudo of cell walls have to bo passed beforo it can get free. Later od tho ducts begin to carry up water from ths enrth (ib before deBcribed), which mixes in tho epout holes with tho dcsceuding sap, reducing its strongth and supplying tho salts that mako so much troublo for tho sugar men in tho last of tho run. As the Benson progresses tho cbecks of tho freezing nights and tho consequent spurts of tho next morning cease, but thouch the outflow of eap Bubsides the circulation in tho tree contlnues through tho growing Benson, and stops only when tho leaves can no longer do their work. Tbo lenvea of many other trees and plants nro also ongaged in BUgar-mnk-Ing, and tho innumerablo vnrletios of fruit, gums, reBins, starches, oils, fibora, etc, produccd in the vegotable kingdom havo tho same olements that go into sugar and wood tisBues, each in a differont combination, and ovory va rtoty of leaf has its own peculiar or ganiBm for tho manufacturo of its special product for tho growth of tho mothor plant and for tho food, clothing and hoaling of tho huraan nnd other animal races. School Llbraries. UY J, W. WBWTON, Learning to read is a moro important nchioveraont than most peoplo imngino, for onco ono gains tho power to get thought from tho prluled pago tho thought treasurea of tho world aro within his rench. But peoplo do not look at it in this way. The groat mass of peoplo do not rcnlizo tho valuo of what is Btored up iu books, of tho vast amount of information to bo gnined from porlodlcnl llteraturo. Tho city man roadB a little bero and thoro iu tho duily, ns ho ridcs to his work or busi uess, or in tho momouts ho snntchos from thoeo. Ho may also uot time to run through n magazino or two. But tho city man and woman hns nothing which tnkos tho placo of th counlrv weokly and tho (Irst-clnsB agricultural paper. Tho country wcokly prcBB and tho ngrlcnlturnl pross nro two powor ful factora iu making tho reading classos in tho country more Intelliuont thnn tho avorago of city peoplo. What is greaily neoded iu tbo country is to load moro peoplo to rtad tho bost pn pora and to form tho hablt of reading books. Tho cltioB aro belng turncd to tho reading of books. Pttr-sighted men and womon, seciug tbo ovil of fccts of a montnl dlcl of daily nows papers and chenp novcls, hnvo Bet to work to ditcover a way of dolivoranco. Tho publlc llbrary nnd tho Bchool li brary aro tho most hopoful solutlous of tbo problem. Tho school llbrary has tho niorit of beiug inexpetisivo, whilo its valuo is incnlculablo. Pour or llvo dollars, or ovon less, invcstcd in tho right kind of books nnd placed in n school will do n work which cannot bo niensured by dollars and cents. Of courso an lntol ligont tcnchor cnn do much to add to tho cfllcleucy of such books, nnd thero nro not a fow of our teacbors who would not bo greatly beneflted by such u librnty. But tho Bchool librory does not stop wlth tho purchnso of a fow books. Under tho prcsont toxt book law tho directors can select a fow Bupplcmontnry books for tho schools cach ycar, and thoso books aro to bo nddcd to tho llbrary. Thua tho little librnry will grow. Somobody mny glvo it'a fow books, and in a few yoars tho peoplo will bo proud of thoao rows of books, nnd tho teachers and childrcu will cotno to renlizo moro and moro what a trcasuro they are. How to uso such books ls not a tlifll cult quosllon to nnswor. When tho little oncs hnvo flnishcd tho flrst rcader thoy aro hardly ready for tho sccond readcr, nnd yot to koep going over tho old book is not to mako progrcss, but simply to lcarn it by heart to ropeat parrot-like. The truo wny is to havo books casy enough for tbo childrcn to read, and suited to their montal capac ity. Put such a book in tho children's bands and thoy will mako vaBtly moro progrcss in renl learning nnd culturo than Is possiblo with only tho rogula tion reading'books. Thero aro plenty of such boolts. Scuddor's Pablcs and Folk Stories, tho Drst volumo of Heart of Oak Books and of Soosldo nnd Way aido, Sticknoy's Book of Fnbles, nnd tho liko, nro just tho books for such a purposo. They nro renl liternluro nnd worth a thousand of tho " wo-dc-gc-up-so " style of children's books. Or tnko geogrnphy. Tho childrcn will lenrn much moro if thoy havo nn opportunity to read Soven Little Sis- ter&, Footprints of Travel, King's Geographical Kcaders and Ilupert's A Geographical Reader. No text book can do whnt thcao works can to impress nnd iuform tbo minds of tho pupils. Tho samo is truo in hiatory. Let them read Pilgrim and Puritan, From Colony to Commonwealth, and the Beginner's American Hia tory, or The Story of Our Country and Noblo Decds of Our Fathers, or American History Stories, and Sto ries of MaEsachusitts. Childrcn are to bo pitied who hnvo none of tbeao books to rcnd. It is a largo part of education, and a means of liberal culturo, tho learning how to uso books. Thero is no cxcuso for Echool offlcers neglecting this most important part of education. The choiccst IreasurcB of tho worla's best literaturo aro now put in Bhano for f chool HbraricB. Wo would call espe cial altcntion to the Tho Heart of Oak BookB, cdited by Charlea Elliet Norton and published by D. C. Heath & Co. to Classics for Children, published by Ginn & Company; to Tho Itiverside Literaturo Serics, issuod by Hougbton, Mifllin & Co.; bIbo to tho books issued by tho Educotional Publishing Com pany. Tho flve volumes of tho Heait of Oak Books contain over 1,400 pages of the choicestliterature, with judicious nnd inslructivo notes. Tho books mako a library of themselves. Classics for Children aro n scries of well-printed nnd tastefully-bound works of acknowl odged merit, and sold nt a low prico. They aro all carefully edited and many contain valuable notts. We have never peen more deeirablo cditionsof tho bcet of Scott's stories than are to bo found hero. We adviso all who aro inter csted in this mntter to send to Ginn & Company for their pamphlct on School Libraries,aB it contains much valuablo information. Tho Riverside Litorature Seriea is especially notoworthy for its issue of tho choicest works of Longfellow, Whittier and other Amorican writors of notc, tho selections being carefully mado with reference to the needs of children. Tho eeries also contains Bomo of tho best work of foreign au thors. Lists of theso books cau be ob tained from Iho publishers.
