Some of tho MIssouriaus who aro seek ing (itllco have prepared a little tabular statement which they aro submitting whenever the query Is raised, "What has Missouri done for Republicanism?" Their repy Ejimniarljid is in short as follows! 1. At the election In 18S3 only tlvo states In tho union cast inoro republican votes than Missouri. 2. Missouri cast more republican votes In 18SS than auy southern state cast democratic votes (by southern stute is meant 0110 that seceded) . 3. Missouri cast mare than half as many republlcau voles In 1SSS ns all tho New England stites combined (i)oo number .of votos for Ilnntson cast lu Missouri, 230,000; whole number of votos cast for Harrison lu New EnglnuJ, 511,000). 4. MlsomI gained fl3,C00 republican votes from 18S4 tolSSS, a larger per cent, of gain tlian any other statu can show- The cundensod argument In behalf of Missouri's claim to considerable more patrouago than sho has received up to date Is being widely circulated by the Mlssotulans, aud they hope It may provo effective. They feel that tho adminis tration ought to bo convinced of itU souil's superior Inducements lu the matter of candidates for oflce.

Tho food value of butter Is about one half that of Its market value. H'l'ho hog cannot thrivo on an exclusive grain diet. It requires bulky food also.

It takes considerable earn nml (I prepare the soil for trardcu nurnnses.bnf It must be done If wo expect good crops. iiiiiiK 01 mat next spring. Tho men who make tho most mnmw from farimntr arc not the ones whn wnrlc the hardest or the most hours, but those who manage Willi tlio greatest wisdom. Many farmers In Butler countv. Nol... arc feeding their potatoes to their hogs, ueneviug mat it win pay better than hauling them to town at nrlnns from in to 13 cents a bu-hcl. Inherent defects should bn nvnMiwl. The iKitiltry fanciers have had a crooked breastbone or a wry tail on a slro trans mitted to all the chicks. Aim to avoid deformities or enfeebled constitutions in bhds or animals. Tho winter covcrlnc nf sirauboiri- plantations may bo safely delayed until tuo groumi lias frozen bard, when a wagon can be driven over the bed and tho covering material more easily tlls tilbuted than If put on earlier. It I said of corn that It Is ono of tho best foods for fattening hogs, but is starvation diet to pigs'. The reason Is that while corn contains the elements th it produce fat II Is dellclent In mineral matter and other elements essential to growth. Feed chopped scrap beef to the hens If you wish them to Iny. When eggs are as high as at p-csent it will pay to buy meat for the hens. The cheaper por tions will answer, but It should be lean. Liver aud fresh blood are also excellent egg-producing foods. Tho ration that elves tho best result is that which Is balanced so as to afford essaiy for tho production of the articles sought, whether meat, milk or eggs. Matured stock' requires fond for produc tion as well as for the supply of itself. Instead of washing the sheep, thus tendering the animals liable to colds and disease, it N now proposed In some sec tions where sheep are raNed in larga numbers to establish wool-scouring mills, to which the word may be carried and washed before balling. It is a mov iu the right direction. RAR1IILN AXU ORCHAIIK. Potatoes keep best if stored in a dart place. It often pays, to change seed, eveu iu the garden. Selons can bo cut at any time now and stored iu the cellar. Eveu in the winter it is not a $ood plan to nllow horses and cattio In a young orchard. So long as tho ground Is not frozen hard it is not too late to set out jouug tiecs. Nearly all kinds of hard nut3 should bo planted in tho full. or winter before tho ground freezes. One of the advantages lu beginning (o prune early is that there will be less ne cessity for much pinning later, and es pecially of removing large limbs. Blackberries, raspberries, currents and gooseberric- should bo pruned by cutting out' and removing all the old wood. What Is not saved for cutting should bo burned. Under ordinary conditions less watering Is needed If the trees are set out in the fall than If the planting is de layed until spring, but the tree must withstand the thawing and freezing. Dust Is otie of the worst dllUcnltft-s to contend with In keeping bouse plants dm big tlio winter. If they cauuot bo thoroughly protected tl-e folia-To must be washed off carefully every week or teu nays. Bones or bono dust Is ouo of the host fertilizers that can bo applied to fruit trees or plants of all kinds.
