THE KEPUBMCAN, WBDMSDAY, ALOOKA, IQWA, MARCH 80, 1392. Miss Lettie Huntlcy, 2s the sister of Mr. W. S. Huntley, of Cortland, N. Y., a well known carpenter and builder. Her frank statement below gives only the absolute truth concerning her illness and marvelous recovery by the aid of Hood's Sarsaparilla. She says : ~C.

A New York lawyer who was on a sleeping car the other night unwittingly caused something of a Stir ftmong his fellow passengers. Every one had gone to sleep and nothing arose to disturb the slumbers oMhe travelers until about 3 a. m. Then the bell in the porter's room began to ring. It was one of those rings which settled down to hard work at once and, as they say, just dp nothing but saw wood. It was a steady, perfectly contented ting. Soon it became apparent that it was no sprinter, but a long distance champion, for it rang and rang, as only an electric bell can ring to wreck men's nerves. Some one in the end of the car wakened and groaned: "For heaven's sake, stop that racket! If you want the porter, go out and get him. Don't wake the whole car up." But the ringing continued. "For heaven's sake," cried a little man, leaping into the aisle, his hair standing on end, "What's the matter; is the hotel on fire?" The bell sawed wood steadily. "Stop that ringing 1" bawled a full lunged man, sticking his head out between the curtains and glaring savagely at tho little man. A baby woke up and began to howl. Its mother tried to calm it and its father swore like a trooper. He threatened to have the life of the man who was making that "infernal noise," and the bell blazed away as merrily as if it were a twenty-four hour alarm clock. Everybody in the car awakened except two people—the porter and the New York lawyer. Then a delegation started to the porter's room to assassinate him. They found him dozing peacefully on a seat, while the bell was now carrying on its work with the regularity of a patent circular saw warranted never to stop. The wrathful passengers decided that before they cut the porter's throat it would be wise to have him stop that bell. They pulled him to his feet, and shouted in his ear, and when he opened his eyes they yelled: "Bell! Stop the bell! Stop that boll!" The porter went down to the lawyer's berth and stuck his head between the ciirtains. ' 'Did you ring, sah?"' ho asked. There was no answer from the lawyer, though the bell kept up its ringing-, while the baby ran a rival noisemaking factory and its angry father invented magnificent swear words. "Did you ring, sail?" repeated tho porter, and the nervous mother began to sob. But the lawyer slept sweetly, one knee, which hod restlessly moved against the panel in the night, pressing the button of tho electric bell, and it and the baby did tho rest.—New York Tribune.

His Ultimatum. "Madeline, will you marry me?" His voice had a husky, appealing sound, his heart thumped audibly and his knees had got beyond his control. "No, Horace, I will not." "This—this is your final answer, is it, Madeline?" "It is, Horace. I am sorry I cannot" "This is the end of all my fond hopes, the waking from the dream I have been dreaming, and the winding up of the fool's paradise in which I have dwelt for the last three months, eh?" "I—I suppose it is, Horace, but do not be utterly cast down," said the young woman soothingly. "Time softens all our griefs and turns sorrow into joy. In the future, Horace, when the pain of this refusal shall have" "Miss Shuckers," he exclaimed, risin._ with dignity, as became a man who had received a temporary backset, but had recovered himself, "talk not to me of the future. It may have its consolations, its joys and its repose, but it cannot reawaken old delusions. Henceforth Miss Shuckers," he added, reaching foi his hat and cane and moving with unruffled self possession toward the door, "I can never be anything more to you than a brother."—Exchange. far Torpid Liver maa Dr. Miles' Pills. The Sham and the Real. Every good thing has its imitators, every genuine article its counterfeits. The Ammonia and Alum Baking Powders sold over the counters are no more like Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder, than the paste is like the real diamond, or a counterfeit is like one of the old master's genuine paintings. When greedy and merciless manufacturers claira their adulterated and harmful baking powders are as good as Dr. Price's, they know they are not telling the truth. These people know they are destroying the stomachs and the complexion of the consumers, and there are many grocers recommending such powders over their counters—knowing sanvj to be injurious and worthless—simply to make a. large profit. Dr. Price, a concientious physician, has spent a lifetime in perfecting and popularizing his Cream Baking Powder, the only Pure Crearn Tartar Powder now to be obtained. Multitudes of imitators all over the land have sprung up, not to imitate the purity of Price's Cream Baking Powder, but to see how cheap they could make their counterfeits and hoodwink the public. Some use Ammonia and others Alum, but all these shams cry in chorus, "Buy this, its just as good as Dr. Price's and much cheaper. Price's Cream Baking Powder is the standard for purity .aad perfection the world over, and is beyond comparison. , Price stands for Pore Food aad a foe to all shams. * J public France requires teachers In the oboola to teach agriculture.

If you spend tho summer growing corn ind timothy hay, do not expect your annuals to fatten rapidly on it next winter. The English are concluding that swine >lague must be stamped out like plague n cattle. 'So will we some day, and act on it. Clover seed and all seed loses vitality as they get age, because the atmosphere changes. Exclude the air and seeds keep long. The Mirror and Farmer, of New Hampshire, says, with regard to agricultural colleges, that "what is wanted is a wedding of science and practice into art" To test seeds place them between wool- m cloths warmed with tepid water. This will enable you to determine what per cent, germinates. It is easily done. ount the seeds. JAMES WILSON, Crops put in in season always give us he best results. Most farm writers have come to the conclusion that manure should be applied to the land as soon as it is made. The objections are not equal to the ben- flts of this method. Well, but in dty yeafs w often get a thifi stand. If We wanted ft suw crop of clover we would sow early aad alone. A well conducted creamery in a neigh- jorhood raises the price of cows, grain, 'odders and labor. The poorest neighborhoods are those that have the least kill applied to agriculture. Corn is cheaper than it was last fall. Any farmer who sold thin stock to save ;orn has missed it. No farmer can afford to raise corn to sell. If he has a good system under process he needs his ;orn to round out the system with. Mbbing up corn in the West to sell may pay speculators, but farmers, never. The early lamb and the fine pound of butter are the items that pay Iowa farmers best to sell just now. Both are the product of cheap grains and fodders of Iowa. It would pay to sell more of them. Both are the result of skillful management of trained farmers. We 3an produce them cheaper than any other people. There are some hundreds of creameries idle in the State, because no competent dairymen can be found to run them. Has anybody ever heard of many people with lawsuits to take to court and no legal man to be found to take charge of them, or of many sick people with no physician obtainable to attend to them? Well, educate dairymen or^ get a dairy education. We sell 2,000,000 pounds of butter annually to Great Britain, a country that buys 310,000,000 pounds a year. But then, we send abroad the grains that are fed to make butter over there. One would suppose that if there is profit in feeding our grain abroad there would be more profit here. It is enterprise in foreigners to send here for our corn, bran, oil meal and the like, but it is not a very money making business for us. A great mistake will be made if the Holfitein is condemned because her milk is not so rich in fat as the Jersey. The cow that gives the most butter fat in a year on the same feed is the profitable cow—not the one that gives the richest quart of milk We think the Holstein on our rich grains and grasses will give richer milk than on the feed that developed her in Holstein. She is a grand feeder, and this is a grand characteristic. She also lays on fat fast in the feeding stable, and this is a good trait. Fair play for all cows, say we. Potato tips in October have the same nutritive ratio as corn, but this is the chemist's finding. The cow prefers the corn, singularly, and this brings hr the element of palatability. The farmer can, with profit, study the chemist's tables, but the good chemist will tell him that the cow is the court of last resort. He needs'conclusions of chemists, • he needs experience. The farmer will surely fail if he relies entirely on nutritive tables, and without them he is at a loss how to profit by the discoveries of scientists. Prof. Sanborn, some time ago, surprised the feeding world by taking the position that the unimproved steer fed as well as the well bred, and drew into illustration some feeding done at the Indiana station with some well bred cattle. Now we learn that the well bred steers were not well used. One was foundered, three were off feed, and when they were taken in hand by a good feeder they did twice as much gaining as previously. A great many ciphers on the wrong side amount to nothing. The whole plant wbtld is divided Up into! albumen, carbo-hydrates and fat for ration purposes, and the per cent, of each that is digestible is given. From the digestible albumen, carbo-hydrates and fat the nutritive ratio*ia made. The tables so made up present many conclusions that tho cow will not agree to. New milk is rated at one part of albumen to four of oar bo-hydrates. The skim milk is rated at one part to two. The oalf would despise the narrow ration in this case, but the laboring man will work longer on a pound of skim milk and corn bread than with full milk The New York Mutual Life pensions Its president with $25,000 a year. It seems high time that Iowa people should keep their money at home. Insurance is well for certain men, but when young men pay out about what they can save out of their earnings to insure with it is certain that they never will have capital of their own. Capital to a young man is worth far more than companies can make of large amounts. We think this feature is overlooked by young business men who insure heavily. \ r ery little life insurance was taken in early life by the successful men of to-day. Getting good rations that will do as much for the animal in winter as green grass does in the summer time, is the talk of the farmer The woody nature of the mature plant will not do it. That is not readily digestible. Softening by some means helps, such as siloing.' We resort to grain to help out the straw that got too ripe, and if we can keep up the growth in winter on grain that we easily get in summer on young grass, we do well. All kinds of grain will not do that. Corn is good in our cold winters, and if it is added to our well-cured, grasses, it brings good results. The discussions we have had on rations have determined many farmers to grow something to feed with their corn in winter. They discover that corn fed alone is partly wasted, and that it will pay to mix it with grains or feed it with fodders more albuminous. Red clover will be more extensively grown for this purpose, and so will Hax to be ground and fed without having the oil extracted. Peas are getting attention in this connection, and 'deservedly so. Our farmers can grow a bushel of corn with less expense than a bushel of peas, but the peas answer a purpose that demands answering. Our farmers can afford to grow less corn if they grow more of the plants AVO speak of. Our machinery is not adapted to pea culture, but we can handle peas with mower, loader and hay fork, and we think cheaply. We suggest plowing seed four inches deep. We need more accurate information concerning Iowa products. It is proposed in the Iowa legislature to have the assessors get the exact amounts. This will prevent wholesale guess work that tinges with "high falutin" patriotism that makes crops greater than they are and cheaper than they should be until the middlemen get them, when the truth comes out that crops have been overestimated. It is part of the gambler's scheme to depress prices by heralding exaggerated amounts, and in this he enlists the city dailies, regularly. When he gets a majority of the products of the country he changes front, becomes a bull and uses the city papers again. This has gone on, year after year, until everybody sees the consequences. We should have the truth and we think the pending proposition will give it to the people. Many new creameries are going up in the State, and complaint is ripe that the plants «ost too much. We have letters asking questions on many creamery points, to all of which we say, go by all means and visit well established concerns and learn what they do, how they build, what they require, how they economize, what this and that costs, where they sell, and all about the business. See Mr. 0. T. Dennison, of Mason City, president of the State dairymen's association. Any farmer in the State will, with pleasure, give all the points he can, and save new associations or individuals much money and some grief. The college creamery people are only part of the way along in their building, and only well begun in experimentation. They will have opinions, they get Elgin prices now, have some things not seen elsewhere, and will keep at work But new beginners will find it profitable to see plants of all kinds, as well as the State concern. Quite often discouragement grows out of too heavy expenditures at beginning. Then, some of our best butter and cheese makers, who make the very best goods, can not tell how on paper. So go and visit them and get out all they know. Iowa is fast assuming her proper place as a dairy State, and no department of the farm pays as well where the work is done right We SKJ asked if clover sown alone -will do well Yes, better than if sown with a nurse crop. All nurse crops hurt the young clover plant You can sow early and out a crop of hay the same year as has been demonstrated at the Iowa station. , Custom sows clover with a nurw crop, because it Is & bi-enniftl and W- qulres two years to mature, wad fcnwif desiring clover the yew folloiring >ow it it ' feed' With, We e*. port 2,000,000 pounds a yew to Great Britain that buys 213,000,000 pounds a pear. The butter makers there buy bur eora &nd other grains at sflll greater and compete with us in market. The French, German and Danish batter makers all buy our grains to make but* ter. Now suppose the Iowa corn grower should take it into his head to turn his grain into butter himself. ' It Would seem a wise thing to do. Freight on corn to feeders farther east is much higher than is the freight on butter to the eastern consumer. Freight on butter from central Iowa is about $1.10 a hundred pounds. We have all the elements of butter making here present with us. Our eastern competitors buy our flax meal and bran and buy southern cotton seed meal to make their cows give milk. That Is enterprise In them, but It can hardly be called by a commendable name as far as the sellers are loncerned. We know of nothing that would pay the corn growers of Iowa better than turning their grains and fodders into good butter. THE BATION. We can not avoid the "ration" as a question of discussion. It is uppermost Especially in the East is this the case. The writers for farm.papers deal every week with questions on this topic. It is quite interesting to watch the subject and see how they get them up. The German standard is gospel back there- one part albuminousto 5.4 of the carb o- hydrates, or 1.5.4 as it is generally written. They go to Minnesota for bran, to Iowa for corn meal and down south for cotten seed meal to get the component parts of a ration. They have to buy feed and it is sensible of them to buy just what will give the best results, and it can not be questioned that rations compounded this way give more ecomomic results than when made up very much different. Cotton seed meal and bran lets the East out in ration making for their milk cows.. The eastern dairymen a're only making butter until the West gets at it extensively, . after which time they can not buy the corn, and until the South concludes to feed its cotten seed to help keep up its deteriorating soils. We have been and are feeding corn mostly, but we must consider this ration making. We can not very well compound so as to get 1.5.4. It takes too much albuminous feed. Where will farmers get flax enough, or peas enough, or clover enough? We do not ad vise trying to get. to that point, but we do advise the feeding of something with our corn that will bring tho ration nearer to it than corn is. Timothy will not help out, as it is as wide as corn and needs toning up itself. Flax meal with the oil out helps, and with the oil in also helps—we doubt if Iowa ever feeds such a ration. Clover hay is about right itself. But by thoughtful arrangement the feeders of the State can do better than is commonly done. We can feed Dakota and Minnesota bran with corn until those States are wise enough to keep bran at home. The combined crop of peas and oats will help greatly, and for making beef if much feeding were done when grass is growing the young plants help to balance up corn. Just how much balancing must be done to get the most out of corn is not settled. It is certain that corn fed alone is a wasteful feeding. We think if each farmer ted his own steers that the well balanced pasture could be made to do the most of it, and a German ration given to finish, and the farmer who milks the cows that breed his steers can grow some flax and some clover, some peas, oats and roots and less corn, and make more money than by present ways of exclusive corn 'ceding or practically so.

DOUGLASrB^KMe F. S. Stough, A(?ent OT TAKE NO Insist on local advertised dealers s RAILROAD LANDS BOOT FLAVOR' is MILK. SANBOBN, IOWA.—I object to the 'theory ;hat roots fed to milk cows must necessarily produce milk flavored by the roots. In my experience of forty yeara 1 have fed all we could raise ot Jurnips, and I venture the assertion that no one could even detect the least flavor lu either milk or butter of turnips fed. Some years we have had a dozen cows in milk, more or less, and have fed them from three to four hundred bushels of turnips, and now we milk but one cow and a pailful of turnips ino.rning and night is a part of her dally ration. 1 repeat?, that not ouco during that time could anyone—not even a professor at Ames—detect the first iota of a tincture of the turnips fed, either in the milk or butter. When I was but a boy we had chemical instructions ou that point, and I aui sorry it is amoue the lost arts. It is all summed up in this: "Draw the milk before feeding your roots." That little point—mark it-milk before feeding. I wont warrant it, but I d9n't believe it will if onions are fed. We believed by our chemistry, when I was a boy, that the cow had in her stomach a kind of milk that went to work to grind up the turnipSj and by some intricate in- discribable attachment to the lungs would throw out the odor of the roots, and in a few hours none of It would be left. T. F. MAY. We must take the conclusions stated above as facts, but our correspondent must take our experience on our side that heavy feeding of roots of almost any kind will affect the flavor of butter, and the consistency also. We must further be allowed to say that feeding afttjr milking will not entirely free the milk and butter from injured flavor and consistency. Roots can be fed to the great injury of butter la other respects. It will not keep so well as butter made from corn and less roots. Prof. Robertson, of Canada, tells us that heating milk up to 150 degrees F. will drive away the bad flavor, but even that will not obviate the other objections. We favor root feeding, but stated in tas paragraph objected to that Jf ropt* are fed too heavily the butter will be injured. JOY* station is exj»r,imejMJi «nd - For Sale by the Illinois Central B. R.
