By. Clyde H. Tavenner, " special
Washington correspondent of this
Washington, Sept. 6. Spend
ing nearly $200,000 a day more
than it took iu, the government
nl vaH t.h month nf Atiffnst with
a deficit approximating$5,000,000,
which is indicative of a defioit of
$6,000,000 for.this fiscal year, as
against a defioit of $19,480,752.43
for the last fiscal year.
This deficit was due to two
principal causes :
First: The unparalleled extrav
agance of the stand pat faction of
the republican party, which is in
ooDtrol of the government,
Second: Failure of the Pavne
Alflrich tariff law to produce suf
ficient revenue to meet the expen
ses of the government.
Exess of expenditures over re
ceipts is not new in the history ol
the party now in power. For three
or four years the government has
'been closing its books each night
faoing a big defioit in the day's
business. But the average
American dees not know this.
While there would be no j a Na

If a business firm should spend
more money than it teokjn, day
after day, week after week, month
after month and year after year,
it is but natural to assume that
the stockholders would demand a
new management. Yet the men
in charge of the government have
for years been able to overspend
the receipts without having been
called to account by the public.
This can be explained, however,
by the faet that the average man
is not by any means . aware of the
actual situation .
WHAT THE FIGURES SHOW .
How are these daily deficits
made up? The amount of the de
ficit is taken from the general
fund. How does money get into
the general fund? It comes from
the people. Figures best tell the
story of what these daily deficits
are doing to the general fund:

which is no doubt the best hand
book on the tariff now in print.
One of the unusual features of the
book, as conrrasted with past cam
paign books, is its utilization of
republican utterances to sustain
democratic arguments. Thirty-six
of the 516 pages of the book axe
made up of speeches by republi
cans who take practically the same
position on many of "the big issues
i as the democratic leaders. The
committee is asking one dollar
for the book, which goes toward
defraying expenses of the Demo
cratic Congressional Committee.
Not having been favored with con
tributions by the great industrial
concerns of the country the demo
cratic committee must rely largely
upon the contributions from the
the people. These who are really
unable to contribute the dollar to

- SHIP SUBSIDY BOBS UP.
In his letter to the Republican
Congressional committee Presi
dent Taft serves notice on the
country that if the next House is
republican the ship subsidy bill
will be passed.
The republicans had intended
putting the $5,000,000 ship sub
sidy grab through at the last ses
sion, but were sidetracked by a
scandal which brought about a
Congressional probe of the busi
ness methods of the Merchant Ma
rine League, of Cleveland, Ohio,
which concern had been attacking
and intimidating members of Con
gress opposed to the subsidy grab.
It developed at the hearing that
the attacks on the opponents, of
shipping subsidies had been car
ried on with money subscibed by
subsidiary concerns of the steel
trust, and other individuals and
companies which would profit by
the passage of legislation appro
priating money from the treasury
to private ship owners .
AS TO THIRD TERJMS .
It is generally believed politi
cal circles that Theodore Roose
velt is out for a third term as
President. Grant, in his day, al
most as popular in his day as is
Roosevelt now, also wanted a third
term, but was set upon by the
National House of Representa
tives, which passed, by a vote of
234 to 18, the following resolu
"That in . the opinion of this
House the precedent established
by Washington and other Presi
dents of the United Spates after
their second terms, has become,
by universal concurrence, a part
of our Republican system of

would be unwise, unpatriotic, and

In Wisconsin I saw no forest
fires. . Our carelessness in regard
to forest fires in the South is al
most a disgrace to our people. If
a man by his carelessness started
a fire which burned up your
smoke-house or barn, you would
raise a great disturbance, but some
worthless vagabond may start a
forest fire that will do damage
equal to a dczen smoke houses or
barns and nothing is ever done
about it. Timber" is becoming
scarcer and scarcer every year
and our farmers must begin to re
alize that the timber crop is just

does grow more slowly, as any
other crop. The thing to do is to
begin putting these men who care
less with fire behind prison bars.

blood of its victim not yet dry on
the wheels of iron, its mission of
death is resumed. At Concord, a
woman and a cow are caught and
meet a similar fate, A dispatch
of the same dats tells of this acci
dent as follows :
Mrs. Eli Hatley, a white wom
an about 32 years old, who lives
at the Cannon mill, was struck
and instantly killed by thn South
ern's fast passenger train No. . ST
this morning about 10 o'clock.
Mrs. Hatley was driving a cow
down a small path along the edge
of the railroad track directly op
posite the power station of the
Southern Power Company and on
the approach of the train the cow
became frightened and began to
run along the track." Mrs. Hat
ley held on to tha chain and at
tempted to stop the cow but to no
avail and a few seconds before the
train reached them the animal
made a dash across the track.
Mrs. Hatley attempted to folio;
but she only succeeded in getting
on the outer edge of the track
when the engine struck her, hurl
ing her down the embankment.
Death resulted instantly. Both
arms and a number of other bone's
were broken and her body was
badly bruised and mangled, pre
senting a most horrible spectacle.
Mrs, Hatley is survived by her
husband and two small children.

Better Water Supply for the Farm.
Housekeepers must' be freed
from the slavery of inconvenient
water supplies ; it must be made
basy for them to have all the wa
ter they need for household pur
poses, and the bathroom must be
made a recognized feature of" the
country home as well as of the
city home. We do not think it
too much to say that the way to
all these things is clearly pointed
out in this issue. The old excuse,
"lean not afford it,", ,vill no
longer answer. When one can
have a bathroom fitted up for less
than $40, and when water can be
supplied to the whoie house for
frcm $100 to $300, the question
becomes, How long, can I afford
to do without it?" Not a bit
longer, if you have your own
home and even a little bit of sur

The crops generally used for fall
sowing to serve as cover and graz
ing crops are crimson clover, the
vetches, bur clover and rye . O&tB,
wheat and barley are sometimes
used, but generally these crops are
sowed for making seed or forage
for the next summer rather than
as cover and grazing crops, al
though they serve more or less for
both these puprposes. If the land
is rich we wuld put the cereal in
the following order of merit for
winter grazing: Barley, wheat,
rye (Southern grown) and oats.
It is useless to sow barley on poor
land, but" on rich land we would
have no hesitation' in placing it
first among the cerials for furnish
ing winter grazing We also re
gard wheat as superior to rye or
oats, but it also requires rioher
land than the rye and oats, but
not necessarily as rich land as is
required for barley.
For a winter cover crop and for
grazing these cereals should be
sown moderately early. We are
often asked if they may be put in
at the last cultivation of the cot-
