The estimated 2,000,000,000 bird popu lation of the United States east of the plain states is none too large for the great territory covered by the recent een us. The number should be allowed to increase largely. , The third physical attack on Governor Blease of South Carolina within a month occurred Saturday afternoon and the ex ecutive was saved only by the interven tion of his friends. Governor Blease has himself largely to blame for bringing on auch attacks as these. The wonder is that the situations have not been worse than they really were. As evidence that the Britisher takes himself most seriously note the British golfer who has 24 drives, lfl brassies, three cleeks, seven spoons, 22 irons, four mashies and 10 putters arid who then admits that he has no time for politics, not even love. We suspect, however, he must have a steady and substantial in come in order to support his small army . ef caddies. The states of Arizona, Idaho, Nevada and Wyoming, together with Alaska must sense a feeling of backwardness that they are the only states and terrl tories of the United States that have failed to enact legislation looking to the elimination of tuberculosis. But it is not to say that all the other states and territories have done all that they rea sonably could be expected to do along that line. On one trans-Atlantic liner the steer age has been replaced by third-class com partments. If the change of name car ries with it a change of conditions seem ingly commensurate- with the dignity of the n?w name, it will be a marked step forward.

A Surreptitious Gift By F. A. MITCHEL negotiated with a mere shaking-up of the passengers, while the engineer was a little disturbed in body. Is this sort of thing good railroading? Are the railroad lines and their employes doing all they can do to protect the Uvea of the passengers who entrust them (elves to the tendpr mercies of the com bination of steel and human brain and muscle hen they allow auch slipshod methods to be followed! Would it have been a terrible hardship for a brakeman of the freight train in this instance to have gone back a few feet after his train came to a halt in order to determine whether the main line track was clear for the passing of the oncoming train, assuming, of course, that there was time enouch for the slight duty, as there should have been in reasonably safe rail roading? It is bad enough for the public to be compelled to trust in steel that may have flaws and in a roadbed that may sink without being further endangered by such rank negligence as apparently ruled in this accident at South Berwick. Peoples National Bank U. S. Depository Open Monday Evenings from 7 to 8 minimi TEN IN AUTO'S PERILOUS ROLL CURRENT COMMENT t A great deal of significance may be at tached to the fact that Martin A. Brown, the Democratic chief adviser as to dis tribution of official preferment in Ver mont, has purchased the weekty news paper called the Deerfield Valley Times and printed at Wilmington in southern Vermont, where the new owner makes bis Vermont home; and again perhaps Mr. Brown simply sees a good business opportunity and promptly grasps it. You may draw your own conclusions re garding the purchase. ' However, consid erable bias to the line of reasoning over the purpose of the purchase is lent by the general understanding that the news paper field about Wilmington is not so fertile as to give promise of great re turns, although it may be a fairly good field of operation as Vermont country rewspaperdom goes. But suffice it to say that Mr. Brown now has an un doubted organ for the dissemination of bis political claims something which all politicians cannot afford to have, much as they would perhaps enjoy it. F. G. Fleetwood. F. G. Fleetwood is a straight Repub- can; he has always heen such and ex pects to continue under that banner.

It was an eloquent address that John W. Gordon gave the people of Rochester, July 4. Independence day haa probably been the subject for the largest number of orations in this country. Many of them have become historic. Mr. Gordon clothed art old subject in a new light and brought out the essential features that this government ia the best, and that for four generations we have enjoyed, "as no other four generations, life, lib erty and the pursuit of happiness. Mr. Gordon goes deep into his subject, yet lothes his speech in such terms, and draws his lines of argument so plain as to be readily understood. Mr. Gordon is certainly one of the best orators in the state. Original, concise, he gets at the meat of the question and you are not wearied thereby. Groton Times. A Spectacle of Power. RANK NEGLIGENCE IX KAILROAD IVO. A freight train on the Boton 4 Maine railroad pulled onto a sidetrack at South Berwick, Me., in order to allow a pas senger train to pass. The train was not drawn far enough on the siding to enable a passing train to clear. The pas enger train came along and aideswiped the rear cars of the standing freight train, causing the wreck of the front of the passenger train Is the Work Done Now That Will Count By E. O. MORTON The pullets should now be out on the range in colony coops, and every effort made to keep them growing. One of the greatest hindrances to rapid develop ment ia in allowing the cockerels to run with them, for by their nagging atten tiona they worry the pullets and so hinder proper growth. It should, there fore, be the invariable and unchangeable rule always to separate the aexea as soon as they can be distinguished. The ideal summer home for the growing stock is either on the edge of the woods, in the orchard, or at the end of the corn field. Here the pullets may find shade, insects, and undisturbed quiet. Care should, however, be taken to shut them in with a fine meshed wide door at night, or foxea and other wandering enemies may thin their ranks. The coops should be cleaned twice aj week to keep down the mites and lice. and the perches gone over with a paint brush dipped in kerosene; too much ex tra work, some may exclaim: true, per haps, but whatever adds to the comfort of the future money-makers is wen worth the extra labor. Anyone who has had the task of killing and dressing five or ten broilers at a time will appreciate how uncomfortable it proves to have the lice from the carcasses crawling up an rm; rest assured, then, the birda doubt' less have the same feeling in the matter, Aa to Feeding. As to feed, the feed-hopper and the automatic feeder will save no end ot time, and the pullets will have free ac- cesa to wholesome feed at all times. The hopper should be amply large, and the cover should have aufficient overhang to protect the feed from the rain, and also be covered with some waterproof build- ng paper. For outdoor use, the hopper that haa a feed trough on only one side has its advantages, for wind doea not Total ". $83.40 A hen will lay, if properly housed and fed, 120 eggs a year. Out of this nura ber, 20 are saved for setting, ao there are 2,000 for sale. The average price for these will be one and two-thirda cents, a total of $.13.33. The 400 eggs set should produce 280 thicks. Of these may be raised 220; of this number half will probably be cockerels." Saving 10 for breeders next year, the balance will be sold at 50 cents each, or $50 for the lot. This money will pay for raisinsf the pul lets until they are ready to lay. By November the pullets will be lay ing and should give about 40 eggs per day, 1,200 per month, or at three cents each, $108 for the three months. The account on January 1 will read: Egga from fowls one year $33.33 Eggs from the pullets three months . 108.00 Total $141.33 Feed for pullets for three months and loss by death 49.62 Balance $90.71 A comparison shows a balance of $12.31 in favor of the fowls.

By JOHN ASHLEY Although their efforts on our -behalf are so ceaseless, some of these insects are incredibly small. There ia, for in stance, a little fly somewhat darker in color than the Syrphus, which lays eggs in the stomach of plant lice, and after the lice have served as a resting place they die, but remain in place until a full-fledged fly cuts its way out from the stomach in the most wonderful fashion. These two fliee, the Svrphus and the one just described, make serious inroads into the plant-lice family every year, and reduce their numbers by hundred of thousands; the lace-winged fly, or Aphis lion, ia also an enemy of plant-lice. The females lay eggs where there ia a colony of plant-lice, and when hatched the lar vte, being hungry, hunt down the lice. thrusting their little aharp nose into them, raising them in the air and suck ing the juices from them. The ladybug, too, ia a most valuable friend, and ev eryone should be familiar with ite hab ita. There are aeveral kinds, but the roost commonly seen are red, with yel low spots on their backs, and the larvae live on different kind of scale forms. found on forest and fruit tree. Among the largest helpful insect are the drag onfly (which lives on young mosquitoes) and the ground beetle; the larva? of this latter insect is long, brown, and pointed, and somewhat resemblea a wire worm; it haa six leg, with two feathery i tails, and two curving horns in front. used to pin dou his prey, which con sists of the ln of plum curculios.

"Martin." said my father to we one day,. "I have beeu apeakiug with your mother about you, and we have decid ed that it would be pleasant for ua all If you would go to Stuttgart and make the acquaintance of your cousins. When I came to America I left a Bis ter, of whom I was aud am today very fond. I cannot leave the business to make the trip myself, but later, when you have taken my place In Its man-aa-ement. I bone to do so. It la better that you should go now before you haye become absorbed In other mat ters." I was delighted with the prospect of a trip abroad. My father not only gsvo me a liberal sum for the trip, but a separate amount which be Intended that I should turn over to the ramiiy I was going to visit "They are very sensitive," he said, "and I rely on your tact to turn this money over to them without hurting their feelings. I don't know exactly how they are situated, but I fear they are not overburdened with thisworld'e goods." I found my annt and my cousins ex actly what my father bad described them. Never was there a more amus ing and, to me, touching instance ot a family striving to put the best foot forward. Having been coached as to this by my father, on my arrival at Stuttgart I put up at a hotel and an nounced mv arrival by mall rather than go at once to their home, thus giving them time to make any prep arations they might wish to hide their real circumstances. I beard nothing from them for twenty-four hours. when my uncle called on me and apol ogized for the delay in welcoming me, saying also that on no condition would the family permit me to remain at a hotel, but that their guest chamber needed attentipn. and they had been overhauling it. I thanked my uncle for the proffered hospitality, but declined on the ground that I was troubled with Insomnia and must be in a house in which I could go about at an noun or tne nigni. However. I accompanied blm to his home, a house of diminutive size, but very neat, and my aunt welcomed me affectionately. My cousin Anna, a girl of eighteen, I found so comely and with such a klssable pair of lips that I took advantage of my couslnshlp and tasted them at once. AH expressed much disappointment that I would be prevented by my in somnia from making their bouse my home during my sojourn at.ftuttgart. but I was quite sure that they were much relieved. They Invited me to dine with them, and, fearing they would be mortified at having to sit st a meager table, I declared that I was a victim of dyspepsia and would only accept their invitation if they would promise not to tempt me with any ex cept the plainest food. And, remem bering that sausage was a common and Inexpensive food in Germany, I said that sausage -was about all I ate. It did not occur to me that no worse food could be used by a dyspeptic till my aunt expressed surprise. I spent a couple of weeks with my relatives, they trying to hide their pov erty and I trying to hide the fact that I noticed it, or, rather, pretending that I could not nse what tbey were unable to give me. And all this time I was studying how I could turn over to them what my father had sent them without their, knowing whence it came, for I feared tbeir pride would be hurt if I offered it in the form of money, yet I knew that was the only form in which it would meet their re quirements. The only method of giving them pleasure without racking my ingenuity was to ask my cousin Anna to show me the attractions of Stuttgart pay ing the expense, of course, myself. Going about in that way with a pretty girl brought about a love affair. In deed, though my father had not men tioned the matter to me. when I saw Anna I suspected his real motive in sending me abroad was to make a match between her and me. At any i rate, long before the end of my visit I proposed to her and was accepted. The time of my departure drew near, and had found no plan by which to leave my father's gift without hurting the beneficiaries. The amount was the equivalent of f 1.000 in American money and could not be surreptitiously transferred in any ordinary manner. There was an old clock in the house which I thought I might pay that amount fori but when I expressed a desire to possess it my aunt begged me to accept It. All ordinary plans I tried having fail ed, I was forced to a special expedient Anna consented to return to America with me, and I went for a tour through Europe. I said goodby. then went to my hotel, made myself up as an old man. watched for my uncle to leave the house, followed him till he entered a trolley car, took a seat beside him and slipped a roll of bills into bis side pocket When I returned from my tour I found that my fiancee had a very nice wedding outfit but no one of the fami ly hinted whence came the where withal to purchase it Since my marriage I have no trouble In making gifts to her family. I give the money to her. and she passes it over to them. My father in time transferred the management of the business to me end went abroad to ee bis sister and her family.
