I ROOSEVELT'S PERSON
POWERS OF THE PRESIDENT WITH THE PEOPLE CLEARLY DEMONSTRATED THROUGH 5 THE LEADERS. fl THE PLATFORM WILL BE DECISV SIVE, INCISIVE, CONCISE AND PRECISE. gvv-i.;..' . CHICAGO, June 20.?The way in ...L,V.V, lln/i narerinnlirv of ThOOflorG - -- V Roosevelt controls and dominates this gathering of the representatives of I over 7,OOb,OQfi Republicans is one of the most remarkable features of modS5?:: " era . politics. There are assembled &-? " here a' this council of the party lead 'ers men who have been prominent |J . . . in the management of its affairs al7"; most since, the time that Mr. Roose|S? velt was horn. They have dictated ft"'-- its policies and nominated its candidates. To-day they are simply here ySf.i- ' : .. to carry ortt his* wishes, practically everything connected with this quadrennia 1 assemblage of the represen1%'v? tatives of the party. It is not only * that there is ho opposition to Mr. Roosevelt himself for the Presidential a*;. nomination, but there is practically no Opposition to anything that he wants P, done. 8".;- The force and power of the characf . tor and individuality of one man were )? - never more strikingly manifested. But i>; a few years ago Mr. Roosevelt was , known only in a very limited degree. BS%v - A combination of circumstances placed him in the chief magistracy, and pjy- . the man himself has done the rest, pgi Of course, the people are behind him. ; . ivo matter wna; nis cnarucn:ustjL-a d. and Ills talents, if the exercise of them in his administration of public affairs had-, not. touched t lie chords of the popular heart, he must have fallen by the political wayside. But it has ; been his fortune to appeal to the progressive, enterprising, energetic sentiment of the people, and they have rallied to his standard in a most remarkable way. Many men, older and more experienced than he, longer in public life, and far more prominent in public af fairs, could never have wielded the influence that he wields in his party to-day. Certainly his career lias been unique, as was said of Xapoleon. "Competition tied before him as before the glance of destiny." Cortelyou Will Be Chairman. Save on the Vice-Presidency alone, the President's wishes are being as faithfully carried out as though he were here on the ground and telling them to his followers. Despite the grumbling of some of the old-time leaders. George B. Cortelyou. Secretary of the Department of Commerce and babor, will be chosen chairman / of the National committee, and will manage the eamnniirn the nrnrt :c:il Iy certain result of which will bo the % .election of Mr. Roosevelt to the Presi%l dency. The platform will be framed fcv in accordance with his wishes, and as he himself has said, it will he "debi cisive. incisive, concise and precise." K;. It is not likely to he lengthy. Neither y;' will it contain anything to startle jfe- . the conservatives. It will he a plain. ?$?; Republican platform, perhaps in the p.words of Senator \V. B. Allison: "One covering Republican principles in a fy. . practical way. I do not think there L- should be much viewing; with alarm. ;;b. and if we point with pride it. should % - be to achievements of the protective . principle, for if this country has acl\rf vanced industrially, commercially and politically, that advance has been due to the policies of the Republican part.y and largely to that of protection. We.can honestly congratulate oi.trk;/ selves upon the way in which we have kept our pledge to Cuba. We have changed that unhappy, misgoverned 'f/,. island" into a free and independent re|;k; public. The Republican party has bepb.. sun the largest of modern enterprises, the construction of the Panama canal, j.'b";' destined to be one of the greatest aids [Ei to the development .of foreign eomH' merce ever yet attempted. The PhilK ippines are no longer a drag, but are practically peaceful and will be helpHak ful instead of a burden."?Henry Hall. 9k Does An Education Pay.

Some Timely Reminders and Seasonable Suggestions. Keep the chicks growing. Make warfare on mites and lice. Get the premises in a clean condition. Chicken vermin thrive in dirry hotises. Have ail Lhe brood coops ratproof, so the chicks will he secure ai nigm. Remember, chicks require clean, dry quarters, pure air and exercise. Lack of these things invites both trouble and disease. Wholesome and varied food is required, for the chicks and growing-'flesh.' bone, muscle and feathers at one time. A diet of one food will not answer. After chicks are two months old let them have access to cracked corn at all times if they are on a good gass range. Scrub stock?scrub results, and generally the keeper is classed as a scrub man. All the redeeming features scrub or cross-bred fowls possess come from some pure-bred ancestors. In a pure-bred flock there is uniformity in shape of the specimens and color of skin; eggs average the same in size and color. All these things are selling factors, and all are lacking in the flock of scrubs. Give both the chicks arid fowls a chance to pick over the wood or coal ashes. They seem to find something they like there. Charcoal in small pieces they will often swallow with apparent relish. If the charcoal has been on hand some time it may have absorbed deleterious matter or odors. Heat it well and all these are dispelled and the charcoal is good as ever. Crusts of stale bread soaked in milk and then squeezing out part of the surplus milk is a food greatly relished by chicks of all sizes and ages. Miss 13rennen says: "Boil cheap rice until done, then pour off the surplus water and set vessel hack on the stove so to have the rice steamed until it becomes a .little dryer, then sift on cornmeal, stirring briskly with a fork until the meal causes all the grains to become separate. That is a splendid food to give three or four noons in a week to chicks after they are three weeks old. The chicks simply go wild over it." Remember that the brooder chicks must have green food by the time they are a week old. kettuce is excellent for them. Unless they have hay chaff to scratch in they will have weak or leg cramp. Scatter some pinched oatmeal or millet seed among the chaff litter and see-how their little legs will make it fly. Their c a eery chirp will also ten you now they on joy the needed exercise. Don't forget to burn all the old nest material as soon as the sitting hens leave the nest with their broods. Take the nest boxes out ant] hold them over the blaze?the inside should be well heated, and it scorched or charred a little no harm will be done. Of course,, these operations should be done far enough away front tho houses so there can be no possible danger from fire. Mysterious ailments of brooder chicks can often be traced to a lack of sufficient grit supply. Even when regularly prepared grit is provided it will be found beneficial to use good clean sand liberally for them to scratch in. The sand should be renewed every other day. and should be kept dry. Never put ai> egg away with dirt of any kind on it. Eggs absorb odors. Clean-shelled eg~s help sell them and bring better prices than dirty, raussv looking eggs. Appearance of all commodities is always a custom-making factor. Personal attention is what counts in the poultry business. Rest assured it" you are attentive enough to your flock lo be classed a "crank on poultry" that profitable success is near enough to you to shake hands with. There are occasions when it is a compliment to be called a crank. Handle the new-laid egg with care. 'Tis a thing that's easy jo mash. It has a place on all bills of l'are And always sells for cash. The new-laid egg is good food, pure, Nothing better can he had. But "eggs of uncertain age are sure To he doubtful and generally bad. PILES ! PILES ! PILES !
