The Tanners of the Norhwest.
Chiistinu I'nion.
So tnueli lias been written of late
about the condition of the farmers in
these ropions, that it is pertinent to
inquire who the Western farmer is.
In the old States the representative
farmer is a man of long training in
the difficult and honorable art of di
versified agriculture. He knows
much of soils, of crops and their wise
rotation, of domestic animals and
their breeding, and of a hundred dis
tinct phases of the production, the
life, and the household economies
that belong to the traditions and
methods of Anglo-Saxon fanning.
If he is a wise man, owning his land
Unci avoiding extravagance, he can
defy any condition f the markets,
and can survive any known succes
sion of adverse seasons. There are
also some such farmers in the West.
But the average wheat-raiser or
corn-grower, who has lollowetl in me
wake of the railway and taken up
government or railroad land, is not
a farmer. He is an unskilled laborer
who has become a speculator. He
obtains his land for nothing, or for a
price ranging from $1.50 to $0 per
acre. He borrows on mortgage the
money to build a smull house and to
buy horses and implements and seed
grain, lie then proceeds 10 put as
large an acreage as he can munage
into a single crop wheat in the Da
kotas, wheat or corn in Nebraska
and Kansas. He speculates upon
the chances of a favorable season and
a good crop safely harvested ; and he
speculates upon the chances of a
profitable market. He hopes that
the fir-t two crops may render him
the possessor of an unincumbered es
tate, supplied with modest buildings,
and with a reasonable quantity of
machinery and live stock. Some
times he succceeds beyond his antici
pations. In many instances the
chances go against him. He lives
on land, the title to ia vested in
him ; but he is using it unskillfully,
meets an adverse season or two, loses
through foreclosure that which has
cost him nothing except a year or
two of energy spent in what is more
nearly akin to gambling than to
farming and finally helps to swel
the great chorus that calls the worldl
to witness the distress of western ag
riculture. It cannot be said too em
phatically that real agriculture in the
West is safe and prosperous, and that
the unfortunate are the inexperi
enced persons usually without capi
tal, who attempt to raise ;i single crop
on new land. For many of them it
would be about as wise to to take
borrowed money and speculate in
wheat in the Chicago bucket-shops.
The great majority, however, of
these inexperienced and capital-less
wheat and corn producers gradually
become farmers. It is inevitable, at
first, that a country opened by
the railroads for the express purpose
of obtaining the largest possible
freightage of cereals should for a few
seasons be a "single-crop country."
Often the seed grain is supplied on
loan by the roads themselves. They
charge "what the traffic will beur."
The grain is all, or nearly all, mar-
keted through long series of eleva
tors following the tracks, at intervals
of a few miles, and owned by some
central company that bears a close
relation to the railroad. Thus the
corporations which control the trans
portation and handling of the grain
in effect maintain for their own ad
vantage an exploitation of the entire
regions that they traverse, through
the first years of settlement. Year
by year the margin of cultivation ex
tends further west, and the "single
crop" sort of farming tends to recede.
ine wneat-growers produce more
barley and oats and flax, try corn
successfully, introduce live stock and
dairying and thus begin to emerge as
real farmers.
Unless this method of Western set
tlement is comprehended, it is not
possible to understand the old Gran
ger moverftent and the more recent
legislative conflicts between the far
mers of Iowa, .Nebraska, Kansas,
Minnesota, and the Dakotas, on the
one hand, and great transportation
and grain-handling corporation on
the other. It was fundamentally a
question of profits. The railroads
had "made" the country : were they
entitled to allow the farmers simply
a return about equal to the cost of
production, keeping for themselves
the difference between that cost and
the price in central markets, or
were they to base their charges upon
theco.4 of their service, and leave
the farmers to enjoy whatever profits
might arise from the production of
Wheat or corn ? Out of that protract
ed contest has been developed the
principle of the public regulation of
rates. TheMisition of these commu
nities of farmers with Jntere.sts so
similar, forming commonwealths so
singularly homogeneous, has led to
a reliance upon State aid that is alto
gether unprecedented in new and
sparsely settled regions, where indi
vidualism has usually been domi
nant, and governmental activity rel
atively inferior.
J. W. Yates, Tullahoma, Tenn.,
writes: "It does me good to praise
Botanic Blood Balm. It cured me
of an abscess on the lungs and asth
ma that troubled mo two years and
that other remedies failed to benefit."
Christmas Customs.
In the Christmas custom of decor
ating houses with evergreens, we see
a relic of the ancient faith in power
of thereturning sun to again clothe the
earth with grass and bring leaves on
the trees. The Christian religion
has been unable to eradicate these
old customs, it has only covered
them and associated them with the
rejoicing of the season.
In the north countries, where
there was so much superstition con
nected with the celebration, there
were many curious customs observ
ed. The yule-fire was kindled with
great ceremony and rejocing, and
lighted with a brand which had been
preserved from the yule-fire of the
year before. Candles of unusual size
were lighted, and the foaming yule
beer brought in, and about seven or
eight o'clock hot cakes freshly baked
were passed around, with the beer
in the ancient horns and tumblers.
There were also sacrifices offerpd' at
this season, human sacrifices being
offered to Odin, or Wodin. The sac
rifice offered to Frey, the earth-god,
was a hog. The yule cake is baked
in the form of a hog, even now, and
is kept until spring, when it is given
to the cattle with which the plowing
and other farm work is done, and
the farmers mingle it with their food,
so that all may be strong and
healthy. The ashes of the yule-log
scattered over the fields are believed
to bring fruitful crops. Many had
their beds made of yule straw, wisps
from which woven into hens' nests,
will make the hens lay, and keep
away thejwitches. If two enemies
slept together on a yule-bed, they
would be reconciled to each other,
and they would become the best of

The Prayer-Meeting.
1. Forget all about it until the
hour arrives.
2. Come ten minutes late, and sit
near the door.
3. Drag the music slow, painfully
slow; such singing is so appropriate
for a dead prayer-meeting.
4. When the meeting is begun,
wait for others to speak or pray.
5. When you do take part, occupy
apout twenty minutes.
G. Be sure to bewail the low spirit
ual condition of the church.
7. When the meeting closes, go out
as from a funeral. You can speak
with the brethren and the strangers at
some other time or place.
8. If you mention the meriing
during the week, tell how dull it
J. It this does not kill the prayer-
meeting, stay away entirely for six
months or a year.
1. Head the list of topics from time
to time.
2. Be in your seat when the bell
stops ringing.
3. Sing as though you enjoyed the

0. lie present every meeting, rain
or shine, especially rain.
7. Speak to some one else through
the week about the importance of
such gatherings, and invite him to
the next one.
8. Make a point of shaking bauds
with those present; it will help them
and may not harm you.
A bell which is said to have been
in the church that Columbus built at
Isabella, San Domingo, in 1493, has
been brought to Washington and
will be exhibited at the World's Fair.
It is of bronze and eight inches
high and bears the letter F in old
Gothic. It is thought to have been
a gift to Columbus from Ferdinand
of Spain.

Ia there a single pnrticlo of blood poison
In your veins? Beware! Like the de
vouring flame, it increases in force and
leaves only destruction in its track.
Poison in the blood is due sometimes to
contagion. Sometimes it is inherited. It
ruins health, no matter from which source
it springs. It feeds in a horrible manner
on the flesh, and devastates every organ
of the body. Pitiable in the extreme
would be the condition of that man await
ing death from the effects of scrofula,
syphilis, deep-seated ulcers, rottening of
the bones, sloughing of the flesh, aching
Ioints, etc., were thero no salvation for
lira. But there is; for, although these
conditions continue to grow worse if neg
lected, he nevertheless can be saved to a
life of usefulness, and every trace of blood
poison can be eliminated from his system
and he be mado safe from further suffer
ing, and his posterity insured against the
possibility of a fearful heritage, easily arid
quickly, if he will only use that infallible
antidote for blood poison, Dr. John Bull's
Sarsaparilla. It contains just such ingre
dients as nature baa provided for cleans
ing the blood of every Impurity, for re
storing strength to the digestive processes,
for assisting in the correct assimilation of
nutrition and building up new tissue.
Try it when other remedies have failed.
It has never and never will disappoint any
one. J. B. Morse. Clinton, Ind., writes :
" I was for many years affected with con
tagious blood potion. Portions of my flesh
seemed to be fairly putrid and mortifying.
My hair fell out, ana I was an object of re
pulsion to every one. My breath smelted
horrible, and I had catarrh so fearfully bad
that pieces of frontal bones rotted and came
out uj nostrils. I lest the sense of taste
and smell. I became a veritable nag o'
bones, and weighed only eighty-nine
pounds. I could aardly sleep from pnin,
Snd was so weak I could hardly walk. The
octora said I Could not live many months.
A druggist persuaded toe to try Dr. Bull's
Haroacarllla, and strange as it may seem,
that lemedy saved my life and brought me
back to health. I now weigh IM pounds,
am free from pain and sores, and although
have deep scars where sores were, I consider
myself in excellent health."
