In the nrticlo last wool: "Tho Fur--
mora' Alliance," tho types made It sny
"tho turilT on intoxicating drinks is
now as It ever has been, tho eternal
enemy of good government, tlio
homo, nnd mankind." Whut tho
Alliance did say was this : "tho trafllc
in intoxicating drinks is over us it has
bcon tho eternal enemy &c.''
Wo wish to quoto its words correctly,
first, becuuso of their truth tquaroly
expressed ; next, because of the credit
which is its duo of speaking honestly
uuuu tin issuo which political parties
have been wont to evade or ignore.
I hnvo been thinking, let mo say
what I thought right here :
What u grund leadership both civic
und military, hns been granted our
noblo Stato of Ohio for tho entire
Nation. Seo its names, Grant, Sher
man, Sheridan, Garfield, Chtibc, Wnite,
Windom aud our ox-president Hayes
who still lives to be u leader in all
benevolent and philanthropic works.
It is not best to sny wo uro proud of
theso leaders. Wo thank God wo had
them, tho Nation had tliein when we
could not do without them. They are
gouo now. Their glory remains und
It is our inheritance.
Wo uro tliinkiiiff of that other leader
ship, in another lino and of a different
gender. When tho women good and
great struck to tho front, and with
true heroism would pray tho saloons
out and tho reign of tompornnco in.
They did good for tho tlrao and set
an example. They wero 1,-adcrs and
will find u following In all tho years to
come. Because they had ono bright,
right idea, which all tho people, male
and female may well and will soon take
up, that to sell or to use intoxicants as
drink is ovil, all evil aud no good.
Tho farmers in their convention sny
much of tho bunion of tho liquor traffic
rests on tliom. Taxes, building pen:
lontiarks, jails, almshouses to shelter
tho paupers and courts to try tho
criminals which tho business engen
ders. It is as good ns a discovery.
They have found it out and are willing
to oiiy so.
Wo seo nowhere, in any Slulo, this
declaration bettor made or more plainly
and manfully, than in this eon volition
of the farmers of Ohio. Lcudors they
are aud as somebody ;nust lend why
not tho working men and farmers of
tho good Stato of Ohio ? Who bettor
than they may invite and Inspire tho
samo classes in other States and lead
on thoir organization V They huvo ,a
now party. Why not have thoir
platform largo enough to make stand
ing room for all rinlit-thinking people
who nro willing to stand with them.
And they uro a multitude, a strong
host which will bo constantly increas
ing in numbers. It will bo a grand
majority when wo nil tiro bravo enough
to stand togoth'or for truth and right.

On tho above subject, in tin address
boforo Ohio Horticultural Socioty, E.
II. Cushman of Euclid, Ohio, gavo tho
Heforo planting wo will tnko tho
young plant und trim the top to three
or less buds, nnd tho roots to eight
inches. This will start both top and
root growth near what was tho first
cutting, making n compact plant tho
first season. Tho timo to pruno is
whilo tho vino is in tho dormant state.
In our latitude this is from tho first of
November to tho middle or last of
Tho first two years wo trim tho vino
for wood, or what amounts to tho samo
thing, to got it in tho right shape and
condition to bear fruit. Tho first sum
mer u vino should mako three or four
ennos six or inoro feet in length, with
very few laterals (little limbs from tho
main cano.)
In vineyard planting tho first son
son's growth is allowed to lie on tho
ground, but. for thu amateur it would
bo moro satisfactory to tio to stakes
Tho stakes should be five or six feet
abovo ground.
In either stako or trellis training,
tho first pruning aftor tho vino has
been set should bring our vino back to
ono cano, with from thrco to eight
buds, and about twenty inches long.
v lien tneso uuus start in tno spring,
rub off all but threo or four of tho top
most. This will givo a, clear neck or
stem to tho vino next to tho ground,
which greatly facilitates clean cultiva
tion and clean fruit. From this slago
of growth pruning hns for its object
shape of vino and concentration
growth und fruiting capacity.
Of all our fruit plants there is not
one that can bo us rnndily trained to
suit tho fancy of its possessor as tho
grape vino. Thero are many forms of
training tho grnpo, but I will spoak
moro particularly of tho ono most gen
erally in uso in tho eastern states
ino inrco or lour wire trowis. Tins is
to me the most practical and readily
Having grown our vino tho second
summer with threo or moro canes, wo
nro ready to pruno it for lis first crop
of fruit.
Wo will leavo two canes with about
eight buds each and ono threo-bud
spur this abovo tho canes if possible
In this operation wo hnyo removed
about six-sevenths of tho past season's
growth, thus concentrating tho fruit
iug and coming growth to u very small
portion of our vino. Now, with our
two canes tied to tho lower wire, ono
out each way, wo nro reudy for tho
next year's growth.
Tho spur buds will, in nil probability
start vigorously, us may ull of tho buds;
but on the arm canes somo buds start
vigorously, whilo others uro weak.
Theso last should bo rubbed off; also
any secondary buds which may start.
Should there bo no choico in the buds
to rub otr, destroy tho nndor ones.
This will' leave them ovenly distributed
along tho arm, tying them to tho uppor
wires us they become long enough.
All nfter-treatmont of tho vine,
under this system, is to cut back to
from ono to live spurs and two fruiting
canes, which should start nciir tho
main stem. '
