Hardiness, exemption from disease, economy of keep, lonj life of useful ness, endurauce under stress of heavy work or exposure, docility, freedom from blemishes, and patience under all aorta of adversity are some of the prominent charact eristics of the mule. Mules are always in demand, and It will be many years before there arejeuougb mules raised to meet this demand, and in case of wurs here or elsewhere the demand will lucreuse aud the patient beust will command a higher price. The average price of mules has always exceeded that of borne by, 30 to 60 per cent. Ignorant or malicious paragraph era have slandered the mule by their silly attempts to be witty at his ex pense, and caricatures of flying debris driven to windward by the heels of the mule have afforded amusement to the Ignorant, who would hardly know a mule from a Jack rabbit If they should meet one in the public road. Compared with these libelous scribblers and dab sters a well bred mule, whose manners have not been corrupted by association with men of low degree, is a gentleman or lady, as the case may be. Hut hon estly and truly the mule Is the most valuable beast of burden known to civ ilized man and the most profitable to use or to sell aud consequently the most profitable to raise. For honest, faithful,' xelf sacrificing work the horse ban never equaled the inile. The horse may have more style aud greater speed, but he stumbles and falls or flies the track and wrecks the vehicle, but his patient, sure footed, plodding, long eared half brother, the mule, is often at the goal waiting the arrival of the KklttiKh and fickle steed. Farm and Kanch. Milk si a Factor In Reef Prodaetlea. The milk producers of today do not depend on beef cattle for milk produc tion, says Professor F. Curtiss of Iowa. The general Impression is that beef production and milk production are antagonistic and that a man who wishes to produce milk must, like the traveler at the branching of the road, take a different direction and entirely l is.' sight of the other. Milk giving Is one of the characteristics of the beef breed, which I believe to be inherent and essential for the best results in producing beef cattle not for the pro duction of milk for the sake of milk, but for the production of beef to the highest utility and profit. This is con trary to prevailing opinion on this sub ject, which is that the man who wishes to produce beef h.ul better do It with animals that have no tendency to milk. I believe that milk production Is essen tial to the highest degree of excellence in the beef animal, to the reproductive powers of the animal. Cornstalk Feed. Cornstalks that are free from smut and which were cut up as soon as corn was glazed ond well shocked and which have not bleached out badly In rain and sun make good, safe rough Teed for horses or cattle If cut up fine ly. Of course they must have proper nitrogenous grain feed with them. Stalks that were cut up late and which are badly weather beaten have little uutritlou In them. They are apt to cause indigestion, as a horse must eat too much to get a little. This Is partic- llarly true of stalks In the west that have stood In the field uncut and which are pastured off. Even steers suffer sometimes from eating these. Good bright cornstalks are all right when fed w ith proper grain. Practical Farm er. The Dad of a Tree. Among the curious things recently Useovered by the students of plant life is the fact that a bud taken from one tree and grafted on another carries the age of the original tree with It. It bns Uways been believed that the bud so transferred began a wholly new life, but tills new theory it may. after all. be more theory than fact as yet shows the matter In an entirely differ ent light. For example, if a bud be taken from tree that Is twenty-five years old with a natural life of fifty years and grafted on another tree It will not live is long as its parent tree is entitled to live, the full fifty years, but only for he period of life then left to the tree. twenty-five years. To Stop the GbmttIbk Itahblt. Colonel .1. V. Itosamoii, president of lie Tennessee -State Farmers' Institute. says that he has used for thirty years he formula given below, and If ap- lied hi December and March he will guarantee that the trees will not be ouehed by rahHts: Thoroughly mix and apply to fruit and other tree two gallons of hot wa- er. n 1 1 :i I gallon of soft soap and a gill of erini earb illc acid, and to this old m sMlMeient quantity of fresli lime o make a thirl; whitewash and annlv o the tr.-e with a brush or rag mop. giving the tree a coat from the ground up n bout thrt e feet.

American Agriculturist - !?TAdvcrtise 'ill pay you In the Banner. It Air Pressor. It li prove J that wLeu air It bwted It rle, aud blio ll&i It expands, and per haps some of us are now wondering why it should rise. This la a rather hard subject, but perhaps we may be able to explain it. In the first place air presses on the earth everywhere with a certain pressure. This Is be cause of the attraction of gravity, w hich pull upon or given "weight" to every form of matter, whether swlld, liquid or gaseous. Now, air is matter in a gas eous form. It has very little weight, but still It has some. Close to the sur face of the earth air presses heaviest because it Is pressed down, not only by its own weight, but also by the weight of the air above, and the air presses in all directions as well as downward, be cause It Is so easily moved and can be pushed or made to flow from one point to another very much like water. Ah we go up from the surface of the earth the air presses less and less, because there is less air above It. If you think this out, you will see that an' body surrouuded by air, like a box held In the hand, for instance, will be more pressed upon on its lower side or bot tom than on its top. Philadelphia Ledger. A Jaat Beast. In the days when the late archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Frederick Temple, was master of Uugby he sentenced to expulsion a boy who was Innocent of the offense charged against him. but who could not clear himself without exposing the real offender. The lad made up his mind to bear the punish ment and wrote to his father Haying that he was sure his family would rath er have him expelled than know him to be a sneak. The father promptly sent the letter to Dr. Temple, calling attention to a post script in which the boy said he wished the doctor could understand the mattii und added, " Temple Is a beast, but be Is a Just beast." It s on record that Temple did under stand, and the boy was not expelled. Dr. Temple, grim old man that he was. was always proud of the title "a Just beast." HERE'S A BABY Its Mother is Well.

OA ftHEDrOR BLACK-DRAUGHT THE ORIGINAL LIVER MEDICINE . . . wiuuiwiuu, uizziness, ii biliousness and a coated tonguo o vuuiiiiuu inuicauons oi liver and kidney diseases. Stomach and bowel troubles, severe as they are, give immediate warning hy pain, but liver and kidney troubles, though less painful at the start, are much harder to cure. Thedford's Black-Draught never fails to bene fit diseased liver and weakened kid neys. It stirs up the torpid liver to throw off the germs of fever and ague. It is a certain preventive of cholera and Uright's disease of the kidneys. With kidneys re inforced by Thedford's Black Draught thousands of persons have dwelt immune in the midst of yel low fever. Many families live in perfect health and have no other doctor than Thedford's Black Draught. It is always on hand for nse in an emergency and saves many expensive calls of a doctor. Mullinj, S.

I hive used Thedford's Black-Draught for three years and I have not had to to to a doctor since I have bccnisklne IL It Is the best medicine for me thet Is St on the market for liver and kidney troubles and dyipcptla and other J) complaints.

Representative Dane of Merrlen. who saved the day for the Ilerrien county Oretna flreen In 1901, was ou a sick-bed when he heard of the Van Zoeren bill, but he took the next train for Lansing to put up the plus to defend the existing law and save It from amendment. The battle will wage fiercely when the grind Is on again next week. The Cler gymen of the state will doubtless again oppose the continuation of the "marriage industry." A bill of Importance to all the coun ties In the state is one introduced by Representative Wade of Allegan, chair man of the house Judiciary committee, which provides a new scale of aalarlec for probate Judges. The scale la based on population and provides for an av erage increase in salaries of about 20 per cent, the minimum salary flxed In the bill being $100. In counties of 70,000 population the salary is to be f3.f00; between CiO.000 and 70,000, 93.000; between K,000 and 60.000, $2, 800; between 40,000 and K0.000, 12,000, and so on. Representative Wade, by the way, promises to make an excellent record at the head of the Judiciary commit tee, which, of course, is one of th most Important committees in the list. He made a good record in a less lmportaut position two years ago, and fairly earned the promotion with. which he was honored thla year. Work for Antl-fteJooa Leafne, The state anti-saloon league has mapped out a programme that will keep members and officers busy dur Ing the legislative session. In the first place they have already had intro duced a Joiut resolution proposing an amendment to the constitution prohib iting the manufacture and sale of malt, brewed, fermented and splrltu ous liquors in this state. This Joint resolution, which was Introduced by request of Senator Lockerby in the upper house and Representative Hoi lenbeck in the lower, provides that the question of amending the constitution in the manner indicated shall be sub mitted to the people at the general election in April, 1904. In case the proposition is submitted, its friends wish to have a year's time in which to do missionary work in its behalf. It is a safe prediction, however, that they will not have an opportunity to commence this campaign in this year of grace, for there is little likelihood that the Joiut resolution will pass. Another measure which the anti-saloon league will have introduced Im mediately alter the legislators return from the long recess Is a bill requiring sureties on liquor bonds to file a sched ule of thfir property. The leaguers are not satisfied with a simple Justifi cation as at present required, but wish a complete showdown suctM froau the sureties. Te Prohibit Sate to Peaialee. Still a third bill, which will have the league's support. Is a measure as solutely prohibiting the sals of liquor to females. The argument in favor of this bill is that while it Is bsd enough to permit the sale of liquor to men. it Is vastly worse to countenance its sale to women, inasmuch as the use of liquor by women has the mere demor alizing effect upon the house. As a pre liminary to arousing enthusiastic sup port of these measures on the psrt of the temperance people of the'stats gen : ally, the league has called an anti saloon congress to be held in this city next week. Delegates hsv been In ited from all church and temperance organizations, granges, young people's societies, etc.. In the state. Have ths Monument Fever. The monument fever seems to have struck the legislators rather hard this year. In addition to the bills for a sol diem' and sailors' monument at Lan sing and for a monument commemora tive of the Michigan soldiers who died In Andersonville prison, Senator Van kin of Monroe has a bill making a modest appropriation for a monument lo be erected at Monroe In honor of the heroes of the massacre of the River Raisin, and Senator Cook alks of pre senting a bill making a provision for a monument at the agricultural col lege In honor of the late Dr. Robert O. Kedzie, for many years professor of chemistry at that Institution, who made his name and that of the college andstnte famous throughout the world. Another reform measure which will come a long way from passing is that fathered by Representative (lallup of the upper peninsula. It provides for amen.ling the constitution so as to in fulgurate the use of the Swiss system of the Initiative and referendum In connection with all matters of legisla tion. If the legislators were of the measure which the New York Sun a few years ago applied to the citizens of Chicago, thh joint resolution might stand some show of passing. At the time referred to one, I). A. Reynolds, then a Lansing reformer, started a crusade in behalf of the initiative and referendum and organized In its behalf an army of "loyal Americans." I had occasion to wire the Sun that Mr. Reynolds was about to Invade Chicago for the purpose of organising some fifty regiments of his array, whose slogan was to be "the initiative and referendum." The next day the Sun re marked In nn editorial that the plan would certainly take well in Chicago, for the natives would think that the Initiative was n rrgalla and the refer endum something to drink. Are a rew t'ato Themselves. Railroad Commissioner Atwood has taken up his predecessor's task of endeavoring to secure the passage of a bllF placing electric roads under the supervision of the state railroad de partment, Just as iteam roads are and hav been for years. As intimated In a previous letter, the electric compa nies ate accountable to no one and are practically a law unto themselves.

S. Randall of Oceana, a third termer, as president The club will "get to grinding" In earnest after the present recess. Representative Randall, by the way will renew his attempt of two years ago to reduce the present mill tax for the support of the Michigan unlver slty. He thinks It nets the big school altogether too great a revenue, but it is extremely doubtful If he will be able to get a majority of his colleagues in line with him. Labor Organizations Up la Arias. The labor organizations of the state re again up In arms against the con tract system that obtains in the prls ons of the state. They Insist that the system Is carried on in violation of the constitution and are especially op posed to the cigar Industry that Is car rled on at th branch prison at Mar tuette. With n view of obtaining ma terlal for us In the crusade In favor of the abolition of the contract system the labor men in the house secured the adoption of resolution instructing the committees which are visiting tin various prlo is this week to report oi all the Industries under contract. It was the pun.ose of the labor men to confine the inquiry to the ciiar irdus try at Marquette, but the resolution was amended so as to cover all con tracts. JAMES V. DARKY.

Rut these drop ped out of sight when an Inventive gen lus built one out of a barrel stave, fo his Invention was extensively copied The barrel staves were called "Jump ers" and "skippers" and were made of a single barrel staveof moderate width to which was unilrd a twelve inch sr.it post about amidships.

The great objection to umbrellas 1K) years ago was their weight, and when it is stated as a matter of fact that the very smallest umbrella then weighs no less than three and a half pounds 1 will probably be admitted that the ob Jectlon was a Justifiable one. Iustead of the thin rainproof fabrics which now form the covering of mn brellas nothing better was known thai leather or oilcloui. The ribs were of wood or whalebone, and such a thing as a steel rod was, of course, unknown The stick was usually of heavy oak. those days, too. many umbrellas had the additional incumbrance of feathers over the top, on the theory of "shed ding water off a diick's back." But the oilcloth and leather umbrellas, nolwith standing the feathers, were apt to leak Dernanl Sknw iiimI the Minority. A good story Is told of Reruard Shaw The occasion was the first production of "Arms and the Man" In London The production was a success, and at the fall of the curtain there were clam orous calls for the author, to which Mr. Shaw was at length induced to respond. The audience was still cheering, but there was one dissentient in the gal lery, who was "booing" with the full power of a pair of very strong lungs. Mr. Shaw looked up at this "glorious minority of one" and said very serious ly, "Yes. sir. I quite agree with you. but what can we two do against a whole houseful V BUDS AND FLOWERS OF HOME LIFE. Paine'i Celery Compound Makes and Keeps the Children Well and Strong. Mothers Make It the Home Medicine For the Little Ones. The children, God Mess them, arc the buds and flowers of our homes. Without their prattle and hearty laughter, our homes would be desolate. They should ever be carefully tended in childhood and youth, if we expect them to ripen into perfect men and women. In the home anil at school, the cniidren have their times of ill health and suffering. We often note the pallid and bloodless checks, heavy eyes, nervous movements, and t witch ing of limls and muscles. They complain of headache, drowsiness, weariness, dyspepsia, and indigestion. All such symptoms and ail ments mean that the seeds of disease will have a fast and fam hold, unless proper measures are taken to restore a perfect condition of health. Thousands of wise and prudent parents have made their children happy, healthy, and vigor ous by giving them nature's medicine, Taine's Celery Compound. In many severe and com plicated cases, Paine's Celery Compound has restored health when the little ones were given up by physicians. If your dear ones are not as hearty, strong, and rugged as they should le, try the health fiving virtues of Paine's Celery Compound, t makes and keeps the children well.
