nvMOt'KATS MORTGAGED THE lh STATE. VrvW Not to Hart the Corpora ,,n in Consideration for Cash to i;un fmocratic Campaign.. e have often wondered why the j J;.o ratic party could do Just as it .1 ur,i Kt ill remain In Lower in Carolina. It has spent the peo- uioney in "riotous living," it has :. ! the State all over in debt, it ;i,:ilo.-,i doubled the burden of upon the people, it has taken from them the sacred rights of j-.-if-overnment, it has refused and again to pass an anti-trust ith teeth, it has constantly re- I ,i to give me people any renei .-xcessive freight rates. Ex (',,. rrior Aycock said: "The differ- between the rates to cities in V;r r ; r i ;t and citie3 In North Carolina u o t'ross and outrageous as to chal- the attention and arouse the In dignation of every fair-minded man V) whom they are represented, and v.,- an never change these condl t j...- hy seeking favors. With all of ilt- facts before us, we could not ,;:.(!. -rst and how the Democratic par tv could remain in power; but one Ward, Clark's campaign man ager, has turned State's evidence and y, m. Simmons pleads guilty to the rharne that the Democratic State Ex- H-iitive Committee while he was chairman sold out the party to the railroads and other big interests and rcc rived sufficient cash to reverse a 4 imi.ouo majority in the State. Now, we can understand why the railroads, trusts and combines have Muck so close to the Democratic party, and furnished them with all rh- campaign funds they need. Yes, v,- ran understand it all now the intf-rests bought the Democratic par ty and paid for it, and own it to day, just tne same as iney ao tneir, Mocks, bonds, and other chattels. If then' ever was anyone foolish enough to believe that the people would ever v-i any relief through the Democrat ic party they need not harbor that thought any longer, for Simmons pleads guilty and gives the names of the committee who assisted him in making the deal. The Democratic party could not help the people now if it wanted to. It is a slave to the interest, it is not free now, if indeed it ever was. "Sold out" the railroads, trusts and combines own it. That militant Democracy that Jo siphus likes to refer to so much is nothing more nor less than a slave bowing at the shrine of the interests. Now you people who like to boast about your Democracy can go away back and sit down, for you have been sold into political slavery, you must abide in the house of bondage or leave the party. The Democratic party continues to increase the peo ple's taxes by raising the valuation of veal and personal property, but it does not raise the valuation on the property of the railroads, express, telegraph and telephone companies and other corporations; it dare not displease them. The Democratic par ty cans nothing for the interest of the common people; all it is expected to do is to serve the interest to which it legally belongs. Governor Kitchin no doubt knows all about this deal, and with all the mean things that he is saying about Simmons, he has not mentioned this scandal; it seems that this is one piece of rascality that the Governor does not object to. We take it that Simmons and Kitchin, the two leading candidates for the United States Senate, are not going to do anything to displease the in terest, for the "Ox knoweth his own er, and the ass, his master's crib." Clinton News-Dispatch. HUSH TO HEAIt ROOSEVEIiT. Progressive Headquarters in Balti more Besieged With Those Wrho Want Seats for Speaking There To-night. Colonel Theodore Roosevelt will speak at the Lyric, a large theatre, in Baltimore to-night. Last Satur day's Baltimore Sun stated the seats would be sold to bear the expenses and to help the Progressive cam paign in Maryland. There was a rush for the seats as soon as they went on sale. Last Saturday's Sun says: "All the boxes and over half of the stage and orchestra seats for the Roosevelt meeting at the Lyric on October 17 have already been sold. Many seats have also been sold in the gallery, and from present indi cations the entire house will be sold within a few days. "The rush for seats at Progressive headquarters in the Equitable Build ing yesterday was so heavy that it was necessary for Col. Joseph R. Baldwin, who has charge of the sale, to eniDlov extra door-keepers. Not only wil lthe meeting pay for itself, but the Progressives will make about ? 2,0 00 on it for their State campaign. It will be given the general public." The Abundance in the Woods. (From the Statesville Landmark.) The crop of muscadines and other wild f r"' iia"' ""- le.ent varieties of nuts and other things that grow in the woods and fields and reach perfection in the fall season, is unusually heavy this year. According to the old-time weather Prophets, this is a sign of a hard "inter, the idea beine that nature' anticipates a severe winter by pro- mmg an abundance of food for the who. creeturs," as Uncle Remus call- ei the denizens of forest and field.

Bults- j A house 14 by 16 feet and 6 feet high at the eaves is large enough for three dozen hens. I am keeping about ; 100 in one of that size. My house is built facing the south and all the south side is made of lath one inch apart The east, west and north sides are boxed tight, but there is a door across the north end for a cleaning off the sliding drop board. I use no cur tain in front of the roosts, and I have no frozen combs or sick poultry. As a feed to make hens lay there is nothing better than wheat and Kaflr In equal parts. If the hens are kept In pens feed all they will eat. Throw the grain in straw or hay. Don't do3e your hens to make them lay, and if onie gets sick, separate it from the flock. KEEPING AND STORING EGGS Well Dissolved Solution' of Water, Slaked Lime and Salt Is Recom mended Don't Crack. There are many plans suggested for keeping and storing eggs, but a very simple one appears in a recent ex change: To every three gallons of water add one pound of fresh slaked lime and one-half pint of salt. Have it well dissolved. Drop in your eggs one at a time, but mind do not crack them. If you wish to keep them one or two years you can do so. But you must use them as soon as taken out or they will spoil. When you put in all you wi3h, take a thin piece of board and put on top, and on that put a little salt and lime that the top may be as strong as the bottom. If these are kept at sea and in different climates, why not j keep on land In a cool cellar? Should ' you wish to keep to transport, dissolve j sufficient gum shellac to make a thin varnish In alcohol, let them dry. then after giving each egg a coat pack them In bran or sawdust When want- ed wash off the varnish and they are ri v to n moked. t TREATMENT FOR BROODY HEN Unique Plan Is to Provide Wooden Boxes With Screen Bottoms Fowl Soon Cool Off. unique plan for curing broody bens la carried out by making a few boxes with screen bottoms with legs attached to keep the box up from the ground and allow free circulation oi air, says the Iowa Homestead.

WHEN TO SELL FOR PROFIT Different Feeds Have Much to Do With Money Returned ftvea Month l Beet Age. dry W. C. HOSTAXD.) I write only from ray own experi ence of OTr 20 years In raltl&c bog for the market ( Different localities and different feeds make a great deal mere or less profft In the keep of the hog. Some feed too long sad consume part of the yrofit, while others feed not long enough or liberally enough to make what they ought to make. I run all rny hogs on alfalfa from birth until sold, either for breeders or for the packer, and as soon as they weigh 200 pounds each, or about that. I sell or kill them. If yon are feeding pure-blooded hogs (especially If the blood Is red) they will weigh from 175 to 2H pounds each at six or eight months of age. I think sereu months old la the best age, and the most profitable hog we can tell. The younger you sell, the less risk of disease, the lets trouble, time and feed it takes. The sooner you sell, the more room and the better care for the lext litter. . The cheapest gain is made while the pig is small. A pig weighs about three pounds at birth. With reason able care it will gain on an average one-fourth pound a day for the first 10 to 20 days. So you see it doubles its weight In 12 days, and at 65 cents per bushel for corn, and $1.50 for 100 pounds for shorts the first three pounds of gain cost about three and one-fourth cents per pound, allowing eight, pigs to the litter for each sow. Don't try to get the market ready for your hogs, but get your hogs ready for the market Sell them when they are Iat and not before. Keep the kind tnat top tne market and you will make money if feed is high. Registered hogs gain faster, bring more money for the feeder, and make more pounds of meat out of the grain led them than any other animal on earth. SWINGING GATE FOR SWINE Should Be Hung Downwards With Hinges So That the Hogs Can Push Their Way Through. A gate which will allow hogs to pass and at the same time will restrain cattle and calves, will be found convenient on any farm, says the Iowa Homestead. The illustra tion shows a small gate easily con structed which Is hung between two I 7T Swinging Hog Gate. posts In the lower part of the fence. Hang the gate downward with a pair cf Bmail hinges so that It will swing both ways and the hogs will soon learn to go through that way. The Horse's Hoofs. If the horse's hoofs are hard and inclined to be "shelly" do not let anybody put oil or grease on them. f0r this only clogs the hoof material, vhich should absorb water Instead of repelling it Such hoofs are best treated by soaking them several hours together in warm water slight- jy 8aited, or by turning out the horse at night in a pasture where he will gt the hoofs wet in the dew. It is a mistake to keep a nonde script bull simply because be cost a little money. Hogs follow the rows and tramp down less of the rape if it is drilled instead of broadcasted. For sheep the sHage should be cut very fine. Otherwise they leave the butt sections of the stalks. With the silo five steers can be fed as cheaply as four without. That gives you the gain of one steer free. Aside from' the feed problem, sheep cause the flock master little trouble in summer, unless we except the parasites. As a general proposition It may be said that the sow that has pigs be fore she is a year old will disappoint her owner. Clover silage makes excellent hog feed In winter. They eat every bit oi it. Some waste In feeding corn silage to hogs. When you turn your team over to a bostler at the feed barn be sure) to see that they get the water, oats and hay you pay for. In hot weather a bone should sot be fed much corn. Oats and bran are much better. The more work the more feed of course. Live stock husbandry will postpone soil depletion for a longer period of time than grain farming, bat It wiH not prevent depletion. Green forage must be' fed with dis cretion and sparingly at first or pro fuse sweating will result and some times colic and weakness. Get a pony for the boys.

They should be sound, work ers, over 15 hands in height and not not less than 1.200 to 1.500 pounds weight in work condition. It would be best were they 1,500 pounds and up In weight The sire should be a sound, prepotent muscular, thorough ly worked or exercised, pure-bred, registered stallion of draft breed. The resultant progeny of the first crosa, if a male, should be castrated; If a Champion English Shire. female, it should, when the time comes, be bred to a pure-bred sire of the same breed as the original sire, and this plan of breeding should be continued, cross after cross, until five or six top-crosses of the same pure draft breed blood having been put on the progeny Is practically pure bred of the breed used in its making. There should never be the slightest deviation from this plan of breeding. Had there been in France we would not have the modern Percherons of today; and mixed breeding, such as has characterized American opera tions, would have absolutely prevent ed the origination and perpetuation of the Clydesdale, Shire, Suffolk or Bel gian breeds. Selection and some mix ing In blood had to be followed In the early origination of these breeds, but It Is no longer necessary and now would be ruinous. Then, too, the sire must be sound, and throughout the entire operation of horse breeding, as we have seen, adequate feeding must be the rule. CONTRIVANCE TO SAVE LABOR Excellent Device for Harnessing and Unharnessing Horse Prevents Straps From Tangling. A device for harnessing and on harnessing horses is described and Illustrated in the Iowa Homestead by J. F. Forest and which he has in use on his own farm. It consists of a Inch rod threaded and tightened with burrs and Inserted between the Joists above the horse, similar to a manure carrier cable. There are awning pul leys fastened together in a pair so that one pulley runs on the three eighths rod, and the other has a rope run through it with two hooks tied In so that there is an end of rope hanging below each hook. These hooks are tied in according to the height of the horse, one hook being clear up to the pulley and the other to hook into the hame ring or strap, pull the other end of the ropes which lifts the hames clear of the horse and hook the other hook in hame ring or strap. The back pad and breeching are lifted in the same manner, one hook to lift the back pad and the other can be used above the breech' Device for Harnessing. tns The harness now heac abort the horse and is shored back: out of the way against the walL To harness up the none tne hames are pulled ahead and are hanging ready to be lowered again in position on the horse. After becoming accustomed to it a deriee of this kind eares lift In and the harness does not gat tangled up. Value of Hoqs.

(totermiirtit Iluj Oil Uml Ftr fur of Navy. t Washington Cor. New York Sun.) The United States nary Is to he for Its exclusive us a vast oil field in California from which it will ob tain fuel for its oil-burning fighting ships. President Taft has withdrawn 37, 000 acres of oil lands in the Elk Hills, California, for the exclusive purpose of serving an a reserve source of fuel oil for the navy. The consumption of fuel oil In the navy Is rapidly Increasing. Practi cally all the torpedo-boat destroyers now burn oil; many of the battle ships burn both coal and oil. and the newest ones building and authorized will burn oil exclusively. Tests of Alaskan coal, with a view to determining its suitability for na val purposes, have been going on for more than a year. Should these demonstrate that a satisfactory steaming coal can be obtained from the Alaskan fields, it is believed like ly that the navy will eventually have its own coal mines as well as its own oil wells. "Swappin Lie." (From Pearson's Weekly.) A minister once noted a crowd of urchins clustered around a doK. "What are you doing, little boys?" he asked, with fatherly interest. "Swappin' lies," volunteers one of the boys. "The fellow that tells the biggest one gets the dog." "Shocking!" exclaimed the minis ter. "Why, when I was your age I never thought of telling an untruth." "You win," chorused the urchins. "The dog's yours, mister."
