MORRISVILLE and HYDE PARK. Thursday, Dec. 28, 1893. I. H. LEWIS, EDITOR. Secretary Carlisle recommends a good deal of promiscuous taring in order to raise the revenue of the government up to the point of ex penditure, but lie is bright enough not to suggest taxing manufactures' iuconics for the purpose Ho knows that manufacturers, under the Dem ocratic regime, will not have any in come to tax. The St. Jolmsbury Daily Repnbli , can, after a struggle of a year or two, has "given up the ghost." At times the Daily has been quite newsy and sprightly, but of late it was evi dent that its days were numbered and it was only a matter of time when it should cease to exist. The Weekly Republican, which has al ways been a good paper, will con tinue, and we have no doubt now that the daily incubus is cut off the weekly will be all the better. In case the Wilson tariff bill passes, people may possibly be able to buy some things cheaper than they do now, but if the production of the home manufacturer is curtailed or ruined, the wages of the working man and omen reduced or entirely cut -off, and the sales of the mer chant and therefore his income diminished what advantage will it be to any of them to know that they can buy goods a trifle cheaper than they did under a system where every American was helping every other American? The President has nominated Hon. Wayne McYeagh of Pennsylvania as Minister to Italy in place of Van Allen, declined. While McVeaghmay be classed as a Mugwump, he is nevertheless a very able man and well fitted for the position. President Garfield appointed him to be Attorney-General in his cabinet, and he held the office until Garfield's de ath Of late he has been independent in politics and last fall gave Cleveland his undivided support. The appoint ment, however, shows conclusively that Grover remembers his friends. The Hoke Smith pension smashing policy got another, and probably the worse, raking in Congress last week. Gallant Gen. Sickles, Democrat of New York, who left a leg in Gettysburg) marched down the aisle and, throw ing his stump leg up on to one of the desks, denied the statement that the pension rolls are honey combed with fraud. He said very plainly that "no party will rule long in this country, and no ruler will possess or deserve the confidence of the American people who casts unmerited stain on the pension rolls of this nation." Ex-Senator Edmunds was in Phila delphia last week, and in an inter view on the Hawaiian question de clared that the appointment of Mr. Blount as a special agent of the President was illegal and unprece- v dented. When asked how he thought difficulty could be adjusted he 'That question is difficult to an swer. The -snatter will require a long time in which to be adjusted, and it looks now as though it would never be definitely decided, unless this or some other government establishes a protectorate over the islands. The Provisional Government appears to to be firmly intrenched in its posses sion of the governing power." A National Appeal. The Ameri can Protective Tariff League, in special and extraordinary session on December 16th, responding to the earnest request of wage-earners, unanimously ."agreed that it was necessary to call upon the press of the United States to urge every pat riotic citizen to assist in defeating the proposed Wilson Free Trade Tariff, which is now before Congress. If this measure becomes a law, the demand for labor in all productive employments in the country will be decreased. This will reduce the wages and earnings of every man, woman or child among us ; perma nently lower the standard of living in this country, and reduce the pur chasing power of our wage-earners, who constitute the great consuming force in this land. Every person, rich or poor, high or low, old or young, who is not in favor of lower wages and less comfort in life, should at once write a postal card from his . or her district, protesting against the passage of this bill and demand ing that the McKinley Tariff be left unchanged. Write a postal card to day, and urge every friend of yours to do the same. Perhaps your effort will defeat free trade and save pro tection. The Queer War in Brazil. The most peculiar feature of the war in Brazil is that the belligerents cannot get at each other. The loyal army is unable to ngnc trie rebel navy. Ad miral Mello cannot reach his enemy on land, and President Peixoto has not been able to reach his enemy at sea. The rebel ships fire a few shots into Rio once in a while, and the shore batteries take a few shots at the rebel ships when they get a chance; but the admiral dare not go ashore and the president cannot take to sea. it is one of the most ll logical wars that has ever been fought, even in South America. It has been going on for nearly four months, and we doubt whether a hundred live, or even fifty, have been lost by both belligerents in that time. We suppose that it can be continued as long as Mello is able to find sup plies and Peixoto is able to keep him offshore. Perhaps the most sadden ing thing about the war is its ex pense. The people of Brazil seem to take but little interest in it, and very few of them seem to care which side wids. Yet, for all that, they will have to foot the bills. New York Sun. Startling Statistics. The Rail way Age says that since January 1, 1893, receivers hav been appointed lor no less than 71 roads, with near ly 23,000 miles of road, an outstand ing bonded indebtedness of almost $754,000,000, and capital stock ag gregating over f 534.000,000, mak ing a total of almost $1,288,000,000 of stock and bonds from which all returns are suspended with the cer tainty that a large part of their value will be wiped out before the long process of the court is ended. This is an unprecedentedly bad showing. Twelve per cent, of the entire capitalization of railroads in this country is now in receivers' hands. A GREAT OFFER ! To every subscriber who pays for this paper one year in advance we will give the New York Weekly Press one year for 25 cents; in other words, $1.75 pays for this poper and the Weekly Press one year. Can you r fiord to be without it? If you prefer we can give you this paper and the Weekly Tribune at the same price. Let the RIcht Men Do It. The Democratic Ways and Means Committee ought to understand that if they undertake to make a new protective tariff, they will make a terrible botch ot it. llow can they hope to compare successfully in such business with the last professor of protection, Yilliam McKinley, or with an equally able master of the art, now associated with them, Thomas Brackett Reed? What non sense to suppose that the inveterate enemies of a certain economic sys tem and the studious advocates of another utterly different and op posed, can suddenly transform them selves into experts m the application of the principles for which they have cultivated lifelong hatred? As well might miners leave their picks and come up to make watches, or a lot of aborigines used to war clubs be gin to practice with dynamite guns. The McKinley tariff is probably the most learned and scientific com position of protectionism ever known. It has attached to it the machinery whereby the electric current of reci procity can be turned on at any mo ment it may be thought best. If another protective tariff is wanted, we cannot imagine anything mora anomalous in statecratt, or more absurd in fact, than a lot of preten tious amateurs from a hostile school assuming to do the job. McKinley is not in Congress, but Reed is, and a member of the Ways and Means Committee. If we are to have a tariff for protection let the boss protectionist and his partisan colleagues arrange it. If we are to have a Republican tariff instead of a Democratic tariff for revenue only, in the name of wisdom and folly both, let the Republicans make it. Any other method of procedure will not be monkeying with the tariff only, but monkeying with the un varying practice of public business, and with the simplest dictates of commonsense. New lork bun. The Wilson Tariff. 1 The American Economist publishes the following from well known Wind sor, Vt., county manufacturers rela tive to the Wilson tariff measure: We regard the Wilson tariff bill as calcula ted to produce an unfavorable effect upon the prosperity of the country. If enacted, its effect upon our business the manufacture of flannels would prove disastrous, ine sharp discrimination made against blankets, flan nels for underwear, etc., seems to us indefensi ble and nnjust. Whatever rate may be se lected, we have a right to expect an impartial application. We think under the proposed bill that wages would be materially reduced below their present level and the purchasing power of the people further decreased. J. C. Parker & Co. Quechee, Vt., Dec. 4, 1893. The proposed tariff will work disaster to the prosperity of the country. Our industry will be affected seriously by bavin? many things to contend with which we have never had. We shall need to reduce wages to meet the new conditions. Less wages means less ability to buy. 1 he north acted aDd voted like fools last year. They pnt the south in power and now the country has got to stand it till another president is chosen. E.

The second edition of the December World's Fair Cosmopolitan brings the total up to the extraordinary figure of 400,000, an unprecedented result in the history of magazines. Four hundred thousand copies 200 tons ninety-four million pages enough to fill 200 wagons with 2000 pounds each in a single line, in close order, this would be a file of wagons more than a mile and a half long. This means not less than 2,000,000 readers, scattered throughout every town and village in the United States. The course of The Cosmopolitan for the past twelve months may be com pared to that of a rolling snowball ; more subscribers mean more money spent in buying the best articles and best illustrations in the world; better illustrations and better articles mean more subscribers, and so the two things are acting and re-acting upon each other until it seems proba ble that the day is not far dis tant when the magazine publisher will be able to give so excellent an article that it will claim the atten tion of every intelligent reader in the country. .

A tramp was found frozen the other morn ing in a school house in Quechee. He had tried to kindle a fire in the stove, but failed. Rev. Dr. Charles M. Lamson, of St. Johns bury, who has been called to the pastorate ot the Center church In Hartford, Conn., has accepted the call, and will begin his labors there early in the new year. The staff appointments, of Governor-elect Greenhalge of Massachusetts include that of Col. Gardiner C. Hawkins, a Vermonter, as senior assistant adjutant-general. When 17 years old he enlisted in the 3d Vermont Vol unteers. He was promoted to a lieutenant cy for gallantry, and commanded the 4th Vermont Regiment in the battle before Peters burg. He was severly wounded, anil the war department has awarded him a medal of honor for "distinguished gallantry" in this battle. Col. Hawkins has held several prom inent positions in Grand Army circles. The trustees of the Bin-bank hospital at Fitchburg, Mass., voted recently to recom mend the purchase of the Nichols place at a cost of 170,000. Any action looking toward the building of or securing a hospital will cost the city practically nothing, as there is a fund of some $275,000 under the provisions of the will of the late Gardner 8. Burbank. This estate comprises about 400 acres of land, three bouses and large barns ready for use and occupancy. The late Mr. Burbank was a native of Montpelier.

The Board of Agriculture met at Johnson last week Tuesday and elect ed II. A. Deecher of Johnson, chair man. Mr. Foster of Johnson gave a very cordial welcome to the board and as sured them of the confidence of the citizens and farming community of the county. Chairman lieecher sup plemented the address of welcome with a few fitting remarks. Mr.Winslow, secretary of the board, opened the meeting with an address on the "Outlook for horse breeding." lie said that he had been informed that there were already too many horses raised in this section, and he queried if this was the case, if only the right class of horses were pro duced. It might be equally true that too many cows were being raised, but it's only true on the principle that it's too many of the kind produced, and it is always true that the best ani mals will always sell for good prices. Farmers should not try to raise trot ters, for they don't need them, but now is a good time for a farmer to go to raising good horses, and it will surely pay. There is no man who, if he desired a good, cheerful driver, with courage and endurance, will take anything else if he can get a Morgan ; and my advice to you is to stick to what you Vermonters can do better than can be done in any other section of our land. Mr. Sinclair How do you feed your colts and horses? Oats is a good muscle producing food. I am now feeding all my colts and horses on the floor and I find it a good thing for a horse to reach down for its food. For work horses I like to feed cracked corn. Do you like to feed dry corn fodder to horses ? I think it would be all right to feed dry fodder for a change. What do you feed a weanling colt ? Bran and oats and sweet skim milk. Mr. Hayward Did you ever feed sour milk ? No. Did vou ? Yes, I have fed a six quart pan of thick sour milk with good results. Do you think it safe to feed four quarts of oats a day to a weanling colt ? Yes, perfectly safe. If you feed high you must give exercise at the same time. Will a colt do well in summer if fed high in winter ? Don't stop your grain feed at once; when you turn out to grass keep it up for some time. Mr. Beecher Should horses be wat ered before feeding grain or after ? 1 prefer to water before feeding. afternoon session. The afternoon session was opened by a lecture on the "Potato disease" by Prof. L. R. Jones of the State ex periment station, who illustrated his lecture by charts showing the diseases of the potato plant. He spoke espe cially of three diseases scab, rust or blight, and rust or rot. All of the three diseases are the result of a fun gus growth. Fungus is a plant growth, or rather a plant of itself. Incredible as it may seem, a single leaf may and will furnish at least a million seed bodies, each one of which is capable of reproducing itself, and by a wind will be carried to the whole field. When it strikes a field, in a few hours the leaves will begiu to rust, rot, and each leaf will furnish its myriad of seed bodies, which if car ried down by rain to the tubes, will cause them to rot and spoil. In this way you will find the potatoes near est the surface are the most affected. In this way we may carry the disease into our cellars, and the next spring we carry the disease back to our fields and replant it, by which the disease is continued. Now we have the secret of cure or how to stop it. When the spores are carried over the field by the wind they fall on the top of the leaves, and by sprayinc we can destroy the life of the spores. The Bordeaux mixture, by its use in spraying, has added to our vield at the experiment station at least 50 per cent, as the smallest result, and the highest result gave us 300 per cent, increase over the field not sprayed. Scab is also a disease and may live in the soil for five years, even when there are no potatoes planted during that time. It is a simple process to cleanse our seed potatoes and get them free from scab. Bathe your seed potatoes in a weak solution of corrosive sublimate for an hour and a half, having them clean to begin with, and you will secure clean seed potatoes. Formula for Bordeaux mixture 5 pounds of blue vitrol and 5 pounds of lime to a pound of water. Use quick lime, for if air slaked lime is used you may kill your vines. Slake the lime in a small amount of water and strain it off. An old door screen is a good strainer. Be sure you strain out every lump. Dissolve the vitrol in a dish of water and strain it off in to the barrel of water. This is for 50 gallons of water. ('over all the top of your leaves with this mixture and you have saved your potatoes. Question Would you soak your potatoes whole or cut I Whole, al ways. Mr. Beecher Does it make any dif ference in blight whether manure or fertilizer is used? It is moreliable to blight when we use manure than when we use commercial fertilizer. How late in the season did you keep vour potato tops green t This year they were green till the 7th of October, and were then killed by irost. Mr. Putnam Will the old varieties run out ? Yes. We ought to change our seed every three or four years. Clement Smith My experience in raising potatoes shows that they are the most profitable crop I can raise. I use a small amount of manure and a liberal lot of phosphate, and last year the blight did not ailed them I do not plant deep but harrow the field and use the horse hoe to bring the dirt up around them and cover them. Prof. Jones said he preferred late planting for profit. Adjourned. evening session. The meeting was opened by music by the orchestra of Johnson, after which Mr. Arms spoke of the "Aexi- cultural exhibit at the world s Fair, ' mentioning the leading btate exhibits and dwelling somewhat at length on the position held by Vermont in the dairy and live stock exhibits, m which the speaker insisted, she led the world. J. O, Sanford of the board spoke on the subject of road making. Roads are gettine better every year, but still they are not satisfactory and we ask for something better yet. It is because other matters have got the start of roads that the demand is so great for better highways. Mr. Newton Do you consider the road machine a benefit as they are now used ? In some places they are not used at all now and in other sections they are indispensible. I consider the road machine a useful machine. What is the cheapest and best way to fix sand roads in the absence of stone ? Round it up, keep the water out and cover it with clay or gravel. Mr. N. How can we fix a clay pit ? Can't you put stone in and make a good road ? Mr. N. No. We have done it and it's a clay pit just the same. But put in more stone and gravel and remove the water and you can have a good road instead of a clay pit. We want , our roads for all years to come ; we want to make better roads and per manent roads and we can do so with out much extra cost if we will take care of what we have got, spending our tax on permanent roads. WEDNESDAY. At the opening of the second day's session the subject of "The Silo" was discussed by Mr. Arms of the board. He spoke of the necessity of a silo usually, for success in the manage ment of a farm, especially a dairy farm. Question What is the cost of a silo to hold 100 tons? Mine holds over 150 tons and cost about $100. Build your silo one thickness of matched sheathing and paint with tar paint inside. Mr. Sanford discussed ensilage and cautioned farmers to guard the cor ners from bulging out. Tie the silo so it cannot get away. In filling your silo be careful to pack it at the sides and in the corners, and in finishing off the top leave it highest in the mid dle, and it will settle toward the sides and save the loss of poor ensilage there. In planting make your rows as for corn raising in hills or drills. Srve the Bunshine of the summer for our winter use. Use such variety o corn as will grow as large as possible, and grow good ears. I grow Sanfortf corn. Mr. Sanford advised the grow ing of Indian corn, but the cost of cutting, setting up and husking is so great it makes us ask, "does it pay?" I believe that the cheapest and best way to harvest, save and feed fodder corn is from a silo. Do you raise corn for the grain ? No. Can it be raised to advantage? I think it can, and the stover of field corn can be put into a silo to good advantage. AFTERNOON. The meeting was opened by Mr. Q. C. Fisher of Cabot by an address on "The Dairy Cow and Her Care." He said that the great increase in the yield of butter per cow was due in a great measure to the added intelli gence and knowledgewhichourdairy men gained from the influence of as sociated knowledge. My choice for a perfect dairy cow is the Jersey. Ex periments made at the dairy tests at Chicago show a Jersey to be the most available for butter making purposes. A pound of butter can be made from them for less cost than from any other breed. On my own farm when I began with seven cows, making 100 pounds each cow per year, seven cows, a few sheep and team was all my farm would keep then. I had no silo at that time. Now, with a full Jersey herd and silo, 1 am keeping on the same farm more than 40 head of stock, and from my 20 or more cows 1 have made more than 400 pounds from each cow per year. Begin with a good breed, good milking stock on each side, and then be sure to give them good feed and the best of care. Without the silo I could not make butter at a profit. Mr. Smith What kinds and pro portion of meal do you feed? I feed 100 pounds corn meal, 50 pounds cottonseed meal, 50 pounds gluten meal and 20 pounds linseed meal with 200 pounds bran. Mr. Smith How do you raise a calf to make a cow ? My rule is to keep your calves growing until they are two years old. Mr. Smith Do you feed your heif ers very heavy in meal just before they drop their calves? No. We have to be careful not to give too heavy feed just before calving, lest you lose quarters of their udders. Do you meal a cow just after calving? No. Feed very carefully for 36 hours after calving, and by that time it is comparatively safe to feed lib erally. Mr. May was asked to state re garding the proper ripening of cream. He wished it ripened at a low temperature and wants his but ter made from ripened cream. What temperature do you ripen at i Sixty degrees? A great interest was shown in the discussion, and the speakers held the attention of the audience every moment ot the session. Adjourned Leach, Shewell & Sanborn Exhibit As already stated in one of our former issues the exhibits of the edu cational publishers will for a long time linger in the minds of the many visitors to the World's Fair. The exhibits were uniformly tasteful and interesting. That of Leach, Shewell & Sanborn was unquestionably among the best and most complete exhibits in this line. The valuable books which have been issued from time to time by this progressive and growing firm make a great collection which will attract any student, These productions were well display ed ana very neatly arranged, and were presented in the most compre hensive manner. Many of the books are so familiar to the great school public of this country that a visit to this booth was a real pleasure and had the tendency to make a school feel perfectly at home. The rapid growth of Leach, Shewell & Sanborn has been due to the fact that they have placed only the very best books on the market. They have had more than the material success of their business at heart. They have striven to win for themselves the confidence of the school public by giving them the results of the best aud most ad vanced thoughts in education. In this they have succeeded admirably The extent of their Western busi ness is largely due to that splendid book man and manager, C. A.Sibley, of high attainments, splendid busi ness capacity and energy, who has endeared himself to all those with whom he has come in contact. He knows the value of school books and can discuss them intelligently and present their relative value and merits more lucidly than many other men. bchool Board Journal.

Lan don, were married at the bride's home in Johnson. The marriage is one in which the entire community has been interested, as the contracting parties are among our best known and most popular young people, Mr. McFar land's father having been for many years one of the best known mer chants of the town and county, while Miss Landon, besides being a daugh ter of one of Johnson's most enter prising business men, is widely known because of her musical accomplish ments and her zeal in church work. The clergyman was the Rev. Albert Donnell of the Cong'l church, the Episcopal ceremony being used. The marriage certificate given by the clergyman was a unique one for this part of the country, being an auto graph certificate,, containing blank pages for the autographs of the wed ding guests. It was made in Bur lington in accordance with Mr. Don nell's order, and is very handsomely desicned. Because of the delicate health of the bride's mother the wedding invi tations were confined to the immedi ate relatives and not more than a half-score of family friends. These, however, made quite a large com pany, as both families are widely con nected. Miss May Hammond of Bur lington, was maid of honor, and Mr. Will Landon, brother of the bride, was best man. Miss Allie Hammond of Burlington, played the wedding march. The bride's gown was a very becoming one of cream Lansdowne, with swansdowijadjace trimmings. The maid of houorwore a heliotrope gown. The presents, some of which came from points as far distant as Louisiana and California, were nu merous, and, there is no need of say ing, valuable. The bridal party left on the G:30 train, and after a short trip will re turn for the reception to be given the evening ot Doc. 2 1 th, by the groom's mother, lhe young: people will re side at the groom's homein. Johnson. The Olden Times. SEVENTY-FIVE AND EIOHTY YEARS AGO. By Aunt Susie Lamp.son East Cambridge, Vt.,1 Dec. 18, ism. Mr. Editor: I was reading in the Youth's Com panion the Thanksgiving number the article entitled, "The Contriv ances of the Olden Times, Seven ty Five and Eighty Years Ago," which brought to my mind some other things which the young folks may like to know, so "Aunt Susie thought she would write another letter upon the olden times. The articles pictured out in that piece were all correct, and thev brou-rht to my mind when wh had the old Dutch-back chimney; the log house; the open fire-place, with the crane, upon which were the hooks for the kettles and on wash ing days they had a large brass, or iron, kettle that hung over the fire on the crane to heat the water and boil the clothes, which were then washed by hand and not with ma chines or different kinds of soap as now. However, when they were fin ished and hung out to dry they looked as white as need be. Women used ovens in those davs in which an enormous amount of provision, enough to last a week. could be baked at once; consisting of brown-bread, wheat-bread, rye- bread, beans, pies, sweet-cake gin gerbread, and sometimes a pudding. They also fried a whole panful of nut-cakes large, twisted ones, one beinc nearly a meal. As they were made of "riz" dough (not of soda and milk as now) they were very light and nice. As there were no stoves, potatoes could not be baked. but were roasted in the embers (as I told you in one of my lormer letters), when done being mealy and nice and plenty good enough for anvbodv. even though it were a kiDg. There were no potato bugs or cabbage worms then, for the land being new was not alive with those obnoxious pests. At the dawn of fall the beef was dressed, "all hands" taking hold to help clean the tripe. This done it was washed and boiled, being as tender as a chicken when lifted from the kettle. It was then put into a pickle,, and seasoned to taste, after which it' was suitable to eat warm or cold. After the hogs were killed, sausages were made and a pleasant sight too it was to watch them. The meat was chopped until very fine with the old chopping-knife, then seasoned with sage, pepper, salt and cloves, well mixed, and then put into the small intestines. In the olden times children did not attend clubs and parties every night in the week, but remained at home to study and learn all they could, de voting their spare time to helping their parents in various ways. Girls were always willing to set the table for the meals, which did not consist of as many courses then as nowa days; neither did the people have so many dishes to wash, but enough to get along comfortably, and were made of pewter. There were few earthen dishes then. Wooden trench es, as they were called, were used for the children to eat upon, for thpy would not break. Wooden bowls were also used. Peddlers then car ried nothing but wooden ware. In the spare room, so called, the people had a bed with a high post Dcostead and curtains all around it, made of beautiful curtain cloth, which looked very nice. The chil dren all enjoyed these things. When Thanksgiving time arrived, in the olden times, the children and grandchildren gathered at grand father's to spend Thanksgiving. How happy they seemed as they lis tened to grandpa's stories, while he sat, with his steel-bowed spectacles on, in his old arm-chair, saying, "Now don't all talk at once," for Harry or Tom would be anxious to ask questions. The girls sat at the tables, not extension tables such as we have now, for they were unknown, but at tables placed alongside one another. When the dinner was ready, and grandpa had asked the blessing, all partook of the bounti ful repast, including chicken-pie, baked Indian pudding, gingerbread, sweet-cake, mince, upple, and pump kin pie, nut-cakes and other good things. Before the happv party dispersed grandpa would read a chapter from the Bible and offer prayer. So fervent would his petition be, and so powerful his offering, that to the throng it would seem as though earth and heaven had met. In the olden times a day so happily spent was long remembered. "Aunt" Susie mav never write another letter to the young folks, and in this wishes them all to be good always that they may be hap py here and hereafter. She will now close with the accompanying verse: This year my oite is eighty-seven ; In this a true account is given Of how they cooked, and what they done, And how they lived when I was young.
