I'resideiit Roosevelt is not satisfied to eonline his extravagant language and epithets to prominent private individuals mul news papers who men did not themselves wish to he invest igated by the secret service men; and then, as a reason for this, points out that the work of the secret service agents was partly responsible for the indictment and conviction of H Senator anil a Con gressman for land frauds iu ( tregon. "I do not believe," says the Presi dent, "that it is in the public in tercut to protect criminals iu any brunch of (he public service," and supplements this with the sugges tion that emigres might, if consid ered desirable, make a special ex ception in the law "prohibit ing the use of t he secret service iu in- an to t he I vestigatiiig members of Congress." This biond insinuation that it was fear of having its crimes un covered that deterred Congress from subjecting its members to the espionage; of secret detectives, was no lesr mi insult to its honor and dignity as a co-ordinate brunch of government, than a rellection upon the virtue, integrity and patriotism of its members. It is natural that every Senator and Representative should feel keen resentment at the indignity thus recklessly thrust iu their face, and a movement was started to administer a rebuke to between j (lt. I'resideut in the shape of a opioo stingiug resolution and the expung ing of the President's, objectionable language from the records; but they don't seem to have the cour age to go ahead with it, and the committer appointed for this pur pose by mi unanimous house is hanging fire.

SUGAR CURED BACON FOR THE FARMER. (tin-thing that almost Invariably impresses tl it y man who goes to the country for a visit is the fine llu vorof the meat found on tho farmer's table. It is so unlike the ordinary packing I sc product that it is hard to realize that such a ditTerence is possible in meat coming from the same kind of animals. Tuki- an old country-cured bam, for instance,! can you iuuiL'iue anything finer in flavor'.' It smells good and tastes bi'tler. Such meat once eaten, is never forgotten. No wond-r the old-tini untry darkies bud a say- ling "sweet as ham bone." Now (hat "hog killing time" Is UL'ain at hand the following from (ieorge 11. Fllis, secretary of the M issouri State Hoard of Agriculture, will be of In terest to every farmer who likes sugar cured meat. Mr. F'.llis writes: "For thirty years I have used a method for salting and curing meat that has lieen very satisfactory and our meat has been complimented by a great many people who have eaten at our table. I do not think this is the only way, but It is surely a good way, and I will give It to you for what it Is worth. Some people pre fer dry salting, but I prefer the brine method, and It keeps the meat cleaner and I think safer in a very warm spell of weather. "It is necessary to huve good healthy and well fattened bogs to start with, and to know how to prop erly divide and trim the curcass hut that phase of the (piestion I will not take up. 1 would prefer to butcher when the weather is only moderately cold, and when it is just a little below freezing. If the meat is allowed to b me frozen bard he fore it is put into 1 1 it- brine, it will not take salt readily. After the car casses are cut up, spread the hams, shoulders and sides upon a table or boards iu the smoke house, but when- they will not freeze-do not pile them up. Hub a little salt on each piece, particularly the hams and shoulders, and let the meat cool out for twenty-four to thirty-six hours. Then pack closely in a clean barrel and cover w ith a brine made as follows: Soft water, three gal lons; good salt, two pounds; brow n sugar or a good quality of sorghum, one pound. Make this proportion a sutllclcnt amount to cover the meat well. The brine should he boiled and skimmed and put on the meat after it is thoroughly rooled. It will require from four to six weeks, ow ing to tin- size of the hams, for the meat to be salted properly. The sides require less time usually four weeks Is sufllcient for them, but the proper time to take the meat out of brlno can hedetermined by sampling it. "For curing I use clean corn cobs or hickory and maple wood. I bang the meat in a dark, tight closet made In ttiA coolest corner of the smoke house. I put the fire for the smoke in a stove and conduct the smoke into the closet through a pipe, thus avoiding too much heat under the meat. It is best to take plenty of time to allow the meat to cure and I dfl HI II ,111 y 11 1 ill- ss. m m .iii ffcl "I !;' !'!! I .ti 1 mm "'I': S - .' : .
