Silence Gives Consent.
Ever since Mr. Taft became
pro.vAlont Colonel Roosevelt has
been one of the editors of The
Outlook, a weekly publication
having a nation-wide circulation,
and since bis return from bis
African hunting trip bo has
made numerous speeches
throughout this country, prob
ably. in excess of one hundred,
and up to this writing he lias
never in one ol his speeches or
one of his editorials retracted
one word of the many splendid
tributes which he has paid to
Taft's wisdom, integrity and
statesmanship, nor lias he ever ;
felt called upon to apologize for .
his strenuous and unqualified in
dorsement of Taft's fitness to be
come president of the United!
States. There is an old ladage ,
that "Silence gives consent,” and
Colonel Roosevelt s silence can
only be construed to mean that .
he, in common with tin* great
majority of the people of this
country, sincerely believes that 1
President Taft Jias fully meas
ured up to Roosevelt’s estimate ;
of his character and fitness for I
the presidency, and ‘‘That iie al- s
ways a little more tnan makes
good what he does promise, and j
tout while steadily advancing he
never permits himself to be led j
into foolish excess which would
damage the very cause he cham
pions.” (Jhronicle News.

\ few features deducted from
the institute lecture: Dry-farmed
alfalfa is a success. Every limn
ought to plant an acre or two
and grow up as he finds it pays.
Everybody having some stock
ought to have a silo, for which in
this country a hole in the ground
is good, and cost in that case is
small. Those with wind mills
should have reservoirs, nig mon
ey in a little ground irrigated.
Not enough use made of the wat
er and wind. This country wifi
support prosperous homes of
from one to three sections to the
home. As elsewhere in the
world, farming here and stock
raising should go together Don’t
put a lot of money in tools. Use
a few tools and use them well.,
Gasoline pumping doesn’t pay
beyond forty feet for irrigation.
Wind costs nothing—use it.
Of course it’s essential to put
tin* host fact* possible on the lec
u re, hut 1 consider the man
shallow on dry farming. His
talk along this lint* was mostly
vacuous, and if that’s the best
they can do at the Fort Collins
experiment station anil college,
it would pay them to send a man
down here to Baca Co. to get a
few lessons at first hand.
