Crawford voted against the senate's tariff bill, and Gamble voted for it. Both were elected as "insurgents"—what is the answer? We are asked to review a new book recently issued. As soon as we can find the time, we will give it the minute examination it apparently merits. Reports from the Hooded dis tricts of the lower Mississippi state that many towns are under water and the inhabitants are flee ing to points of safety. An electrician's helper on the battle ship, South Dakota, came within a hairVbreadth of blowing up the ship. About 100 workmen and the sailors and officers were on board when the helper calmly lit a cigarette wTith 700 tons of am munition near him. Back in the days when demo crates were pulling each other's hair over the silver question, Da vid B. Hill, of New "York, was asked which side he was on he re plied, '*1 am a democrat." This is the proper answer for a demo crat to make now when some one asks him what his position on the tariff is. When the time for taking the final vote in the senate on the tar iff bill came Thursday evening, ten republicans announced that they would vote against the bill, so that it might go to conference without the solid vote of the senate back of it. Aldrich, of Rhode Island, who is responsible for the bill, took the ten "bolters," as he was pleased to term them, to task vigorously for their action, and made an attempt to read them out of the party. His attack was re sented in no mild manner in speaches by Nelson and Clapp, of Minnesota and Crawford, of this state. The vo*e against the bill paves the way for the conferees from the house to materially re duce some of the items, and it is hoped that a fairly reasonable bill will be framed before It goes to the president. When questioned concerning the condition of his crops, almost every farmer in this vicinity will say the prospects are better than they have ever been before. The rainfall has been ample to keep the ground in line shape, the weather warm with plenty of sunshine speltz and wheat are well along the road to maturity corn in a good many places is waist-high, and the hay crop is better than it has been for years. These conditions are bound to put the Stanley county farmer at the top of the heap. It means that our farmers, who, since they have taken up their residence in Stanley county, have been paying out their hard earned cash, and buying grain for feed, will now have a surplus to market, and in stead of everything being import ed into the county, there will be something to ship out. The writer met an Iowa land owner a few days ago, and in con versation with him, became ac quainted with some pertinent facts. The gentlemen was owner of 1,000 acres of land in that state it was worth better than $100 an acre, for it oould go onto the mar ket and obtain that much. The land was tilled by renters, and 7*" Philip Weekly Review PHILIP, STANLEY COUNTY, 8. D.. TUESDAY, JULYI8 190y. Central Stanley County Fair, Philip, South Dakota, September 7, 8 and 9,1909 netted the owner an average of $15 an acre pearly. He seemed to consider that a very good profit. Stanley county has thousands of acres lying idle. When it was suggested that 1«* might turn a quarter section of his valuable Iowa land, and invest the proceeds in six or seven quarters here, he replied that it would be imiossible for him to rent it. His acquaint ance with that class of non-owning farmers lead him to believe that but a small fraclitw could be in duced, for any reasonable consid eration, »to move to western South Dakota, and rent cheaper land, with possibilities of far better re turns. Opportunity is knocking at the door of every renter in Io wa, as well as other states, but lack of confidence in their own selves is keeping the response back. k New Party? In the foundation of the '"La Follette and Bryan" party in Min nesota there may lie serious politi cal possibilities. It may be re membered that the present repub lican party was formed in 1852 be cause the dissolution of the whig party in that year left no strong opixment to the triumphant demo crates. The new organization at first wras simply a gathering to gether of several factions agreeing in nothing except their opposition to the common enemy. Yet there was a need for it, and at its first election it put into office 11 sena tors and a plurality of the House of Representatives. The La Fol lette-Bryan men are starting with the simple intention of strengthen ing the insurgent-progressive fight in Minnesota, where they object to Governor Johnson and his pres idential ambitions. But before thwy u« tUrotHfli **&&*•. wot! find themselves drawn into the whirl of national politics. For the tariff action of the democratic senators is rapidly bringing what remains of their party as near to dissolution as ever the whig party was in 1851 and '52. The Protest Worth SometUdf. It is rather odd that, while Coe I. Crawford is at the last moment rushing out and hurling himself under the Aldrich juggernaut,sena tors that should be moved to tears by such a performance are laugh ing. Messrs. La Follette and Cummins, who should have been standing by to gather up the Crawford remains and give them a public funeral, with orations breaking all records for length and fervor, are doing nothing of the kind. On the contrary, one dispatch avers that they are get ting ready to go out into South Dakota and "'expose" Crawford as a bogus reformer, who had sur rendered to the "money power." We do not know how much, if any, truth there is in this story. We do know that Senator Craw ford voted at last against the Al drich bill, which was more than Borah, or Gamble, or Bourne, or Johnson, or McCumber did. He made his protest. If six more of the middle west senators had join ed those who did bolt the bill, it would have been a protest which would have been heard round the world. m* Evidently, the insurgents were incapable of the supreme effort. But they are entitled to credit for what they did. They have noti fied the conference that there is a respectable numl^r of republican senators who are intensely dissatis fied with the bill, because it does not revise downward, according to the party pledges. The house conferees are strengthened that much to stand out for decent schedules. The president is en couraged to throw, the weight of his influence in behalf of down ward revision. The negative vote in the senate may be the turning point in determining the ttnal shape of the bill. And whife Mr. Aldrich has his sneer at the republicanism of the senators who now protest against his bill, he may have occasion to thank them that they stood for hon est revision against his narrow Rhode Island ideas, and thereby saved the republican party from being relegated to tbe minority.— Minneapolis Journal k Cutting and Curing Oats The average farmer lets his oats get too ripe before he begins cut ting. This is a mistake, especial ly in sections where there is no difficulty in curing shocked oats. Don't wait until the crop is dead ripe if you do there will be con siderable loss of grain before you get through cutting besides the color of the grain will not be so good as if you had cut it a little earlier. No man can cut his en tire crop at the exact moment when lest results can le obtained, but he should aim to cut the bulk of it when it is in the best condi tion for cutting. The first should, therefore, be on the green order while the last will be a trifle over riie. When the kernels are in the hard dough state and while from one-half to three-fourths of tliv leaves are still green is the time to start the binder. There is little danger of cutting oats too green. The kernels fill out won derfully after cutting, continuing to draw nourishment from the stems and leaves and, as intimated before, if cut at this early stage, a better colored grain will be se cured. The grain, of course, is much more important than the straw, but oat straw cut early has consid erable feeding value, as every farmer knows. Oat straw is by all odds the best straw of all tlie small grains. It contains 1.2 per cent digestible protein, 38.6 per cent digestible carbohydrates, and .8 per cent digestible fat. This is three times as much protein, two per cent more of carbohydrates, and twice as much fat as wheat straw contains. Of small grain straws, ba» ley straw comes next in feeding value to oat straw but it, W**. mttch inferior to weH oat straw. The feeding value of oat straw is well worth taking into consider ation in these days of high priced feeding products. When oats is cut on the green order, especially when the lieUl is somewhat weedy, care should be taken not to make the bundles too large as then there may be trouble in getting the crop well cured. The importance of a well* built shock in this connection is worth while considering, since the color of the grain has much to do with its market value. A 10 bundle shock, capped with two bundles, is perhhps the best shock to build. Many farmers use the long shocks, believing that the grain cures better in them. But this is very doubtful. It is cer tain that long shocks do not stand well, nor does that method of shocking permit of protecting the grain against bleaching. By a Un bundle shock we mean one built as follows: Set up a pair of bun dles to become the center of the shock. Then set up another |air in'tlie some manner, leaning just a trifle toward the first pair. On the other side of the first pair set up another two bundles, allowing them to lean very slightly toward the first pair. This gives a long six-bundle shock. Now put two bundles on each side of this shock leaning toward each other. Final ly put two bundles on top, placing them in such a manner as to make them stick to the shock as well as possible. The air will circulate freely through a shock cf this kind, the straw and the grain will cure slowly, yet thoroughly, while the grain is protected against bleaching and weathering as much as possible.—Sioux City Farmer's Tribune. Things Have Changed Hugh McMahon was an arrival yes terday morning from Philip, and af ter transacting some necessary busi ness went home in the evening. He says things are somewhat different than what they used.tobe, when it took him three days to drive up with a lumber wagon, a week to load, and then four days to drive back again. Now lie can come up in the morning and go back in the evening, and if he forgets something he can send up and get it. It used to be that it would take a week to load, for fear he would forget something, and it meant a good deal to get everything to last on the ranch for six months.— Sunday's Rapid City Journal.
