GIVE WOMEN RIGHT TO VOTE.
"Why should women be denied the
right of suffrage?" asked Rep-esuwnta-
tive Henry C. Smith, of Michigan. as a
bevy of members of the gentler se.
passed. "Look at those girls anod tell
me it they would not exert an elevating
and refining effect on the politics of
this country. Our women are plire anw
intelligent, and are well qualified t9

lieve the country would be benefited
by allowing them to vote.
"I would like to see them in the

adorn. I never could understand why
women, some of whom possess great
wealth, should be denied the right of
suffrage, when it is given to every mal-
of the legal age, who may be nothing
but a loafer.
"I will introduce a resolution pro-
posing an amendment to the constitu-
tion providing for the right of suffrage
to every citizen, male or female. ThiS
may cause some criticism; but I believe
it is proper women should be given tha
right to vote.
"I am a great believer in women,
and they exert a wholesome effect by
their presence. I have a number in my
office, and I propose to keep them in
there. Their presence tends to kee'
everything neat and clean; they take
the place of tobacco-chewing men, and

Gooch's Mexican Syrup has given
perfect satisfaction in my family, and
I want to recommend it to everyone as
the best remedy for coughs, colds and

Austin, Tex., Nov. 21, 1900.
I have found Dr. Moffett's TE-.,H-
INA a splendid remedy and aid for my
teething children. When my oldest boy
was a teething child, every succeeding
day warned us that we would inevita-
bly lose him. Happened upon TEETH-
INA, and began at once administering
it to him, and his improvement was
marked in 24 hours, and from that day
on he recuperated. I have constantly
kept it and used.it since with my chil-
dren, and have taken great pleasure
in sounding its praises to all mothers
of young children. I found it invalu-
able even after the teething period was
passed. MRS. D. H. HARDY.,

A Trip to the Everglades-Boat Got
Stuck on Mud Bank.
Commissioner of Agriculture B. 1E.
McLin, State Treasurer J. B. Whitfield
and Comptroller Croom have returned
home from a trip to the Everglades,
where they went to examine into the
canals cut for the purpose of draining
Lake Okeechobee. I
They report a pleasant trip. Tihe
party left Tallahassee on Sunday apd
rt ached Punta Gorda Monday. From
here they went by boat to Fort Myers,
which place was reached just as night
set in. At Fort Myers they took a
small boat and went up the Caloosa-
hatehie river, to Fort Thompson. This
stream is so crooked that at some
places thr crew had to get out on the
banks and cordell in order to make trhe
tuiyns. After leaving Fort Thompson,
which consists ot nothing but a po t-
office, they proceeded into Lake Flipt.
While proceeding on their journey pn
i tuesday, the boat ran into a mud bank,
where she was pulled off after ;ix
hours of hard work.
Five minutes after being pulled pff
the bank the boat got stuck on the }lft
bank, and remained all night. Ro'-

the party proceeded to Lake Hi k-
poochee, which is about six miles long
tby four or five miles wide. While
crossing tnis lake, Commissioner Mc-
Lin used his 'oob" to some effect, cap-
turing four fine trout. the largest |of
which was a ten-pounder.
At the head of Lake Hickpoochee the
party camped. and made a meal on Mr.
McLin's trout, and a couple of duqks
which the hunters had killed. Afier
examining the canals leading into Lake
Okeechobee. and taking a trip on the
lake, the party procured teams and
drove forty miles through the country
to Fort Thompson, where they took a
boat for Fort Myers and started on
their return to Tallahassee.
A report of the results of their inves-
tigations will be submitted to the Gov-
ernor at a later day. Commissioner
McLin reports that the effects of the
recent cold spells could be seen as far
south as Fort Myers, although no seri-
ous damage has been done. In some in-
stances young orange trees were dam-
aged slightly. The prospects are bright
for orange growers this year.

PO-OPERATION IN SCHOOL MAN-
There are few teachers, we presume,
who do not urge upon their pupils the
importance of an education and expa-
tiate on the advantages which accure
s a result of one's oeing properly edu-
cated. When a teacher does so the pu-
is naturally expect to find in him an
0emple of the truly educated person.
ansequently when they realize that
teir teacher is incompetent to perform
he ordinary duties of business, of citi-
gsship, of social life; that he is ignor-
gt of the world, of literature, of his-
try, of current events; that he is rude
i his manners, sloven in his dress, de-
waved in his tastes and not ambitious
or higher accomplishments :t is but
natural thit such pupils should fa:i to
be inspired by him with a love for
study and a desire" for an education.
Co-operation is lost as a natural
Mcosequence. It is likewise natural
that parents with a larger knowledge
of what an education should be like-
vise lose interest in the school and fail
to co-operate with the teacher.
Interest begets interest. The teacher
who enters upon his new duties with
gal and well formed plans thereby
annifests capacity and will enlist at
1Wce the co-operation of his patrons
and pupils. By arriving early at the
place of his employment. by making
the s lool room and grounds as at-
tractive as possible for the opening of
gjiol. by a few friendly calls and
even liy polite requests for assistance,
confidence is inspired and co-operation
But it is not sufficient that the people
have confidence in the teacher. The
1x [ teacher needs abundant confidence in
the people to inspire him. We believe
That there are as many communities in
wh vich the teacher does not find in the
i people sufficient ground for confidence
as there are in which the people fail to

To say the least, it discourages a

are better than their school house;
when the community declares itself too
poor to provide fuel or even a service-

Let parent and teacher too study

SOME POULTRY PESTS.
(By Dr. Charles F. Dawson, Veterin-
The poultry industry of the United
States has reached tremendous propor-
tions. The census of 1890 showed a
poultry population of nearly 300,000,-
000. Other industries are less uniform
it theirV distribution, as nearly every-
body raises a few chickens. Some
persons go into poultry raising on a
large scale, realizing there is money in
it, and that "to get the most out of it,
they must provide proper food, large,
clean and airy poultry houses and
yards. Others go at it in a slip-shod
way, providing nothing and allowing
the fowls to raise themselves. Al-
though there are some good reasons
why poultry can exist and keep in
good health, raised wild, the method
1s certainly unbusiness-like and in the
main unprofitable. The fowls become
wild, wander away from the prem-
ises, become the prey of other animals,
are stolen, and drop their eggs in inac-
cessible places. From such poultry all
we get is a few to sell, or to put up
and fatten for the table. When we
bring the poultry into a smaller com-
pass, thus depriving them of having to
scratch for a living, we undoubtedly
produce a weaker-strain, and tend to
introduce diseases from which they
would be immune in the wilder state.]
It is at this point, a knowledge of the
business is requisite. Anybody can
raise chickens-wild; but that same
careful attention and watchfulness is
necessary in the poultry business as in
any other, and it is, therefore, not to
Undoubtedly the greatest bug-bear to
poultry raising is lice. There is a say-
ing, when you cannot find out the trou-
ble with Doultry, clean up the house-s,
nests or coops and treat the fowls for
lice. There are a large number of
species of parasites affecting poultry.
but space limits us to a consideration
of two or three of the more common
ones. First, and most generally impor-
tant is the red- mite. It occurs on poul-
try, pigeons and house-birds. It gnaws
the flesh and sucks the blood. When
fasting it is yellowish; it is red when
filled with blood. During the day, as a
rule, it hides in cracks and corners and
at night swarms upon the fowls, suck-
ing their blood and causing them great
annoyance and loss of rest. The young-
er the animals, the greater the damage
and suffering. Other animals, such as
horses and even man are attacked.
In horses it causes great irritation, re-
sulting in a manige-like disease of the
skin with loss of hair from the affected
areas. This parasite is very persistent,
and vigorous measures will be neces-
sary to destroy it It can be eradicated
by a thoroug- application of hot car-
bolic acid solution (1 of- acid to 20
parts of water) to all parts of the in-
terior of the house, including the floor.
the removal and burning of nests, and
by a thorough white washing.

A Little Boy's Life Saved.
I have a few words to say regarding
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It sav-
ed my little boy's life and I feel that I
cannot praise it enough. I bought a
title of it from A. E. Steere, of Good-
win, S. D., and when I got home with
I it the poor baby could hardly breathe.
I gave the medicine as directed every
ten minutes until he "threw up" and
then I thought sure he was going -i
cnoke to death. We had to pull the
phlegm out of his mouth in great long
strings. I am positive that if I had not
got that bottle of cough medicine, my
boy would not be on earth today.-Joel
Demont, Inwood, Iowa. For sale by
Wight & Bro. and all medicine dealers.
The poultry business is different
from other kinds of business. In most
lines of business facts and figures -do
not vary to such an extent as they do
in poultry raising. It is well enough
to keep account of the expenses and
the sales and to plan ahead, but when
an inexperienced hand bases every-
thing on figures he invariably gets dis-
SFigures alone in the poultry business
will make a man rich mighty quick; if
he has the money and spends it as his
figures seem to justify, he is a goner.
All the good advice in existence could
not save him.
We have all heard about the chicken
fever; with a great many -it is a joke.
But it's no joke; with me it is a solemn
reality. I was stricken with it some
twenty years ago; it came on unexpect-
qd. I had been exposing myself on the
warm side of a hay stack watching the
hens hunting nests. It had been a long,
hard winter, and when spring opened
up the weather was fine. We had some
200 hens and in a few days we were
getting from ten to fifteen dozen eggs
per day. It seemed like the hens all
commenced laying at once. Yes, I got
the hen fever and a bad stroke, too, at
that. I soon vacated the warm side of
the hay stack and took up a position
in the house, where it was more con-
venient-to figure. Inside of ten days
I was a rich man.
The small flock of 200 hens was just
fooling along. I procured all the books
and guides I could hear of and was
ready for business. Yes; a hen would
earn as much as a cow. The figures
said so, and figures won't lie; but I am
here to say that figures do lie-I mean
practically so. Well, sir, I fooled along
with the figures and neglected my hens
until they quit laying- and went to dy-
I1EE EEEEEEE I
ing off, then I hunted up all the books
I could find on poultry diseases and
went to doctoring. Like General Grant.
I let no guilty one escape, and instead
df plowing up the corn ground and
helping my wife in the garden I was
practicing medicine among the hens.
Those that hid out were about the only
ones that survived the siege.
As far as results were concerned, my
whole spring's work was a failure;
neither my farming or poultry raising
was successful. Along'in May I let up
on the chicken question and my wife
took up the work with a few scared-
to-death hens that were left, and she
managed to raise something like 100
late pullets. They commenced laying
the following spring and she managed
to raise the usual number that season.
Yes, sir, my simple story' will look
out of place along side of some of the
big theoretical figures that are some-
times unloaded on the uniusnecting
chicken raiser, but my story is true.
and more than this, I am here to say
that over 90 per cent. of the poultry in
this country is raised on the farms and
in the small villages by the women
folks. I am equally confident that over
90 pqr cent. of the men's undertakings
along this line (without experience) do
and will come out as mine did. I do a
better job now in the poultry business.
I employ some of my wife's tactics. I
can even talk baby talk to a!wee crip-
pled chick, or I can.managelto get up
in the night and help my wife kill a
We use incubators and brooders and
in one way and another we have been
quite successful in our poultry raising.
Some seasons we have managed to
raise a thousand or more chicks with-
out seriously interfering with-our other
work. We live in town now, have two
lots to work on. My wife manages to
raise a few dozen chicks each season:
is a good hand with incubators and
finds a ready market for the chicks as
they hatch at five cents each. Buys
the eggs at the grocery stores and by
careful selection she manages to hatch
from 60 to 80 per cent. of them, and oc-
casionally reaches 90 per cent. or
We are contemplating moving out of
town again and will start a moderately
sized egg farm; mean to keep about 400
laying hens; will aim to replace the
hens with pullets each fall. While we
are doing this we will necessarily have
a surplus of young cockerels to sell as
broilers, the old hens to sell in the fall
and in one way and another we will
manage to have something to sell near-
ly every day in the year.

"Some time ago my daughter caught
a severe cold. She complained of pains
in her chest and had a bad cough. I
gave her Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
according to directions and in two days
she was well and able to go to school.
I have used this remedy in my family
for the past seven years and have nev
er known it to fail," says James Pren-
dergast, merchant, Annato Bay, Ja-
maica, West India Islands. The pains
in the chest indicated an approaching
attack of pneumonia, which in this in-
stance was undoubtedly warded off by
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It coun-

COST AND PROFIT OF AN ACRE OF
I send you herewith an account of an
experimental test of the cost of grow-
ing an acre of corn. I was induced to
make the test after reading statements
at different times that were conflicting
as to cost of production. That it pays
to raise corn if you raise the right kind
and grow it the right way, it seems to
me is shown by the figures herewith
I planted World's Fair Yellow Dent
corn, which yielded 112 bushels (in the
ear), fifteen of which were soft and
ninety-seven suitable to crib. It was
planted between the 10th and the 17th
of June, 1901, sowed one way three feet,
a kernel every nine inches the other
way. Use of land and seed not taken
into account Yield was the increase
from ninety kernels planted in 1900,
and only one-half of what the ninety
kernels produced was used in planting

squares of eighteen feet To bind the
shock required the whole length of a
seven-foot step-ladder, and a shock
compressor with ten feet of rope at-
tached to encircle top of shock. Tak-

Some of the Consequences of Tavern-
"You many well do that," was ans-
wered. "I doubt if Cedarville holds a
sadder heart. It was a dark day for
her, let me tell you, when Simon Slade
sold his mill and built this tavern. She
Was opposed to it at the beginning."
"I have inferred as much."
"I know it," said the man. "My wife
has been intimate with her for years.
Indeed, they have always been like sis-
ters. I remember very well her coming
to our house, about the time the mill
was sold, and crying alout it as if her
heart would break. She saw nothing
but sorrow and trouble ahead. Tavern
keeping she had always regarded as a
law business; and the change from a
respectable miller to a lazy tavern
keeper, as she expressed it, was pre-
sented to her mind as something dis-
graceful. I remember, very well; try-
ing to argue the point with her-as-
suming that it was quite as respectable
to keep tavern as to do anything else;
but I might as well have talked to the
wind. She was always a pleasant,
hopeful, cheerful woman before that
time; but, really, I don't think I've
seen a true smile on her face since."
"., hat was a great deal for a man to
lose," said I.
"What?" he inquired, not clearly un-
"The cheeful face of his wife.'
"The face was but an index '3f her
heart," said he.
"So much the worse."
"True enough for that. Yes, it was a
great deal to lose."
"What has he gained that will make
ap for this?"
The man shrugged his shoulders.
"What has be gained?" I repeated.
"Can you figure it up?"
"He's a richer man,*for one thing."
There was another shrug of the
shoulders. "I wouldn't like to say
"How much richer?"
"Oh. a great deal. Somebody was
saying, only yesterday, that he couldn't
be worth less than thirty thousand dol-
"Indeed! So much?"
"How has he managed to accumulate

And. you know, that pays wonderful-
"lie must have sold a great deal of
liquor in six years."
"And he has. I don't think I'm
wrong in saying that in the six years
which have gone by since the 'Sickle
and Sheaf' was opened, more liquor
has been drank than in the previous
* twenty years."
"Say forty," remarked a man who
had been a listener to what we said.
"Let it be forty, then," was the ac-

everybody far and near knew S mon
Slade, the miller, and everybody iked
him. He was a good miller, a.)d a
cheerful, social, chatty sort of a ;nan.
putting everybody in a good humor
who came near him. So it became the
talk everywhere, when he built this
louse, which he fitted up nicer han
anything that had been seen in ese
arts. Judge Hammond, Jufdge Ly nn,
Lawyer Wilson, and all the big-bu of
th place at once patronized the new
tavern; and, of course, everybody else
did the same. So, you can easil see
tow he got such a run."
"It was thought, in the begin g,"
31 I, that the new tavern we go-
ing to do wonders for Cedarville."
"Yes," answered the man, lau ing,
'ad so it has."
"In what respect?"
"Oh, in many ways. It has ade
lome men richer, and some poorer."
"Who has it made poorer?"
"Dozens of people. You may al ays
take it for granted, when you se a

"There was a slight advance in prop-
erty along the street after the 'Sickle

much, I believe."

"In uhat way did it affect him?"
"He was among Slade's warmest sup-
porters, as soon as he felt the advance
in the price of building lots, called him
one of the most enterprising men in
Cedarville-a re4l benefactor, to the
placc--and all that stuff. To set a good
example of patronage, he came over
every day and tok his glass of brandy,
and encouraged Qverybody else that he
could influence tri do the same. Among
those who followed his example was
his son Willy. There was not, let me
tell you. in all the country for twenty-
five miles around, a liner young man
than \\iily. no, one of so much
promise, when this man-trap"-he let
his voice fall. and glanced around, as
he thus designat-d Slade's tavern-
"was opened; and now, there is not
.one dashing more recklessly along the
road to ruin. When too late, his father
saw that his son was corrupted, and
that the company he kept was of a
dangerous character. Two reasons led
him to purchase iSlade's old mill, and
turn it into a factory and a distillery.
Of course, he had to make a heavy out-
lay for additional buildings, machinery
ind distilling apparatus. The reasons
influencing him were the. prospect of
realizing a large amount of money,
-specially in distilling, and the hope of
saving Willy, by getting him closely
engagedd and interested in business. To
accomplish, more certainly, the latter
end, he unwisely transferred to his son,
as his own capital, twenty thousand
dollars, and then formed with him
a regular copartnership-,giving Willy
an active business control.
"r$ut the experiment, sir," added the
man, emphatically, "has proved a fail-
ure. I heard yesterday, that both mill
and distillery were to be shut up, and
offered for- sale."
"They did not prove as money-mak-
ing as was anticipated?"
"No, not under Willy Hammond's
management. He had made too many
bad acquaintances-men who clung to
him because he had plenty of money at
command, and spent it as freely as wa-
ter. On-half of his time he was away
from the mill, and while there, didn't
half attend to business. I've heard it
said-and I don't much doubt its truth
-that he's squandered his twenty
thousand dollars, and a great deai be-
"How is that possible?"
S"Wel!; people talk, and not always
at random. There's been a ma;. stay-
ing here, most of his time, for the last
four or five years, named Green. lHe
does not do anything, and don't seem
to have any friends in the neighbor-
hood. Nobody knows where he came
from, and he is not at all communica
tive on that head himself. Well, this
man became acquainted with young
Hammond after Willy got to visiting
the bar here, and attached himself to
him at once. They have, to all appear-
ance, been fast friends ever since; rid-
ing about, or going off on gunning or
fishing excursions almost every lay,
and secluding themselves somewhere
* nearly ever# evening. That man Green.
. sir, it is whispered, is a gambler; and I
believe it. Granted, and there is no
' longer a mystery as to what Wiliy does
'with his own and his father's money.
I readily assented to this view of .he
"And so assuming that Green is a
gambler," said I, "he has grown richer
in consequence of the opening of a new
and more attractive tavern in Cedar-
uv. .. P inAfePirrill is an mnuch noOr-
with a slight tinge of shame; "but so
it is. Well, as I was saying, I've been
coming to this bar, nightly, for a good
many years, and I generally see all that
is going on around me. Among the
regular visitors are at least half a
dozen young men, belonging to our
best families-who have been raised
with care, and well educated. That
their presence here is unknown to their
friends I am quite certain-or, at least,
unknown and unsuspected by some of
them. They do not drink a great deal
yet; but all try a glass or two. To-
ward nine o'clock, often at an earlier
hour, you will see one and another of
them go quietly out of the bar, through
the sitting room, preceded, or soon fol-
lowed by Green and Slade. At any
hour of the night, uii to one or two,
and sometimes three o'clock, you can
see light-streaming through the rent in
a curtain drawn before a particular
window, which I know to be in the
room of Harvey Green. These are facts,
sir; and you sir; and you can draw
your own conclusion. I think it a very
"Why does Slade go: out with these
young men?" I inquired. "Do you think
he gambles also?"
"If he isn't a kind of a stool-pigeon
for Harvey Green, then I'm mistaken
"Hardly. He cannot, already, have
become so utterly unprincipled."
"It's a bad school, sir this tavern
keeping," said the marl.
"I readily grant you that."
"And it's nearly seven years since he
commenced to take lessons. A great
deal may be learned, sir, of good or
evil, in seven years, especially if any
interest be taken in the studies."
"And it's true in this case, you may
depend upon it. Simon plade is not the
man he was, seven years ago. Any-
body with half an eyq can see that.
He's grown selfish, grasping, unscru-
pulous, and passionate, There could
hardly be a greater difference between

much," was answered. ;
"In that case, he'll scarcely be as well

"He's at tne top of tle wheel, some
of us think."
"What has led to this opinion?"
"He's beginning to negiect his house,
for one thing."
