Germantown, August 25. Why the Itnpatch Clianged It Suj Iort From Taft to IUxevelt. (Burlington State Dispatch.) being fully acquainted with the facts,! have wondered why this paper shift ed its support from Taft to Roosevelt. The following are some of the rea sons: First. The principal reason for the change was the deep-rooted con viction with those now in control of the paper that the principles and pol icies for which Mr. Roosevelt and his followers stand are right and just and therefore the best for the Amer ican people It is now a fact of com mon knowledge that Mr. Taft procur- ; ed his nomination at Chicago by fraudulent methods. The sentiment among the Republicans all over the country was then, as now', i over whelmingly for Roosevelt. This was shown by the primaries. But the Re publican National Committee dared to override the will of the people and unseat enough regularly elected pro Roosevelt delegates to give Mr. Taft a fraudulent majority. Thus they Mr. Taft and his followers have the audacity to insist that all Repuhli- cans snouia lena ineir support ana endorsement to this fraud by casting their suffrages for him in November. Mr. Roosevelt, who has always shown himself consistently the friend of the I - ... .la &reat mass and body o the people; ailu who is me greatest oeueiacior oi his generation, was quick to detect! the gloved hand of special privilege and corruption in this nefarious scheme to defeat the will of the pe ple and drag the Republican pr.--.-y through the mire and filth of brazen fraud and highhanded theft. Then he simply told what he saw and re i fused to countenance the crime, both before and after its commission. He. saw that he could not stand for the people and at the same time endorse! the action of the Chicago Convention, j t t .. . c i :i x ! lit; was iiguuug 101 principles, not lor j offlce He had been president that he! was seeking no new honors. He was I then and is now simpiy seeking to! ! the elementary principle of self-government, for which our forebears fought in '76. That is why we are for him and that is the chief reason- . . . .. ... . . for the change in the editorial policy, .... ot tnis paper. , Second. Another reason why this ; paper turned its support to Roosevelt i was the fact that at least ninety per cent of its friends are for Roosevelt. "r " '.TI .."TJ:; page of this paper was nothing less; Iv i, i S i. ' than a huge joke It was a travesty Upon its subscribers. When you elim- . . . . . . . .1 mance County who have heretofore roted the Republican ticket, have enough of Taft and Taftism. He is a colossal failure. As President he has bungled his job all the time. - He has disappointed his friends and treated North Carolina Republicans like red headed step-children. In his public speeches and in he matter of ap pointments, he has branded them as renegades and imbeciles. By holding up appointments in an effort to re nominate himself he has degraded his high office to the low level of a political pawn shop. We do not so much blame federal officeholders if they vote for him. They are helpless. They dare not vote agaimrtrhim, and they are pledg ed to get others to vote for him, if they'can. But, as for us, we will not lick the hand that is raised to smitef us. We are opposed to political boss ism. We are in favor of government "Of the people, by the people, and for the people." Away with Taft and Taftism forever! Away with fraud and special privileges. Give us that peerless patriot, the greatest living American, Theodore Roosevelt, the last real President, and by the suf frage of a free people and the grace of God, the next President of theseand IThens lack in their feed any ele United States! ran I 1 MMMMMMMMMMMMM ""'" - HOPPERS FOR THE CHICKENS.

Next I drive two holes in bottom of can at the proper distance from each other to admit the points of a wire staple. Make corresponding' holes in the pail cover, insert the staple through the four holes and bend each point outward, fastening cover and can together. Re move top fronuan and fill with meal or bran and there is not a hopper on the market more useful for baby chicks up to four and five weeks of age.

V For poultry the Russian sunflower Is the most prolific variety. Sow seed early in June. The sunflower is a profitable crop to grow for furnishing a good quality of rich oil feed to take the place of cottonseed or flaxseed meaL Sunflower seed la used in all the poultry mixtures now sold In the markets. The sunflower 1 a hardy plant, a rigorous and rapid grower, and a good plant, to grow not only for its seeds, but also for Its bright, beautl-r L ful yellow blossoms. The plant, when in full bloom, makes a good food for honey bees. Have the ground deeply plowed and thoroughly mellowed. The ground should be rich to grow large heads full of seed. Mark the rows off three feet apart and three inches deep. Drop two seeds to the running foot. When plants are up thin out the stand 15 to 20 Inches apart. Good culture, free of grass and weeds, must be giv en, through the season. Vacation for Breeding Stock.

Let them! occupy this summer range until time to house in winter .quarters In the fall. You will find that they moult out cleaner and earlier and that they will prove better in breeding condition.

Lovers of birds in every part of ocr land and alto the United State de partment of agriculture are urging people everywhere to do everything in their power to attract and protect our native son bird. In winter this may be accomplished by feeding the birds when the land is 3ver4 with Ice and anow. la sprint Nest Made From Tree Limbs. people are urged to put up nesting boxes where the birds may make their homes and rear their young. In sum mer these little feathered neighbors need human protection to shield their young from the attacks of cats. Are you going to join the ranks of the bird protectors of this land? If you are now is the time to show your loyalty to your feathered friends. Make some nesting houses and get them up at once. The song birds are worth protecting and should be pro vided with places to build their homes. It isn't difficult to make nesting boxes. Once the birds have discovered them they will begin to collect material with which to line them and make them soft and "comfey" for their fam ilies. Any small wooden box may be con verted into a house. Use thin, smooth boards for the roof. Place a board beneath the house to keep the cats from climbing up to the birds' home. A good house is made by hollowing out a large tree limb and cutting a hole in it for a doorway. For blue birds make the entrance hole about the size of a quarter. If the box Is Intended for wrens make ft smaller. Protected Against Cats. When doors are larger than the size mentioned sparrows are apt to inhabit them. Blue birds are among the most desirable tenants and they have been known to utilize as houses tin cans, old shoes, large funnels, or any other receptacle that is nailed securely to a post or wall. How to Use Feed Roller. Never use a roller immediately after a heavy rain. But it should be rosed as soon as the surface becomes dry enough to pulverize easily with out packing tightly. The roller should be used In dry seasons following the 'harrow to keep the moisture In the rsofL Of course it Is not possible to use the roller to any extent after pit are well up but It can always be used to great advantage In the preparation of the seed bed. Very often one rolling will not mash all the clods and if tbe ground is particular- Jj- roiIgh lt En0uld be harrowed and rolled and harrowed again until the soil Is thoroughly pulverized. i 8taklng Tomatoes. This Is a comparatively new prac tice, but It Is working out fine, and even market gardeners are adopting it on a large scale. Up to recently its chief use was by village people in their small backyard gardens, but Is now used by growers who are sup plying a No. 1 trade. Its advantages are that-more tomato plants can be grown on a given area; they can be started earlier because they can be easllv protected In case of a danger from frost and that more and better tomatoes can be grown on the plants. Fence-Post Problem. Cement will solve the fence-post problem for those who have a grav el pit nearby.
