PEOPLE OF THE DAY
Spooner of Wisconsin.
John C. Spoouer, United States sena
tor from Wisconsin, who recently re
signed bis seat, has represented his
state in the upper house of congress
for sixteen years. He leaves tbe sen
ate to resume tbe practice of law.
Fens tor Bpooner has for years been
chairman of tbe committee on rules
and a member of the finance and steer
ing committees. He Is one of the "big
four" that control the senate.
While not a brilliant orator, Mr.
B poo nor was always logical and con-

▼lnclng. Close attention was invaria
bly given when ho spoke on legal
questions. No man's views received
greater weight lu the senate on prob
ieiua Involving the constitution aud tbo
statutes.
Mr. Bpooner's service In tbe senate
was divided luto' two periods. As a
protege of Senator Sawyer he was first
sleeted to tbe senate in ISB3 to aucceed
Angua Cameron. He was defeated by
Wllltsrp V. Vilas In 1881, the state leg
tslaturs theu being liemocratlc. He
was elected lu 1897 to succeed Mr.
Vilas, the state having again become
Republican, aud was re-elected lu 10(13.
although lie had writ (en a letter de
claring bis desire to resume private life.
Mr. B|ioouer has at least twice been
offered a cabinet position. Mr. Mc-
Klnley tendered hltu the place of sec
retary of the Interior to succeed Cor
nelius N. Bliss of New York when he
resigned. Mr. McKlnley also offered
him the attorney generalship in IHOI.
Both |x>altlons were declined. Senator
Spooner's resignation goes Into effect

Mark Twain and the Office Boy.
In his early days Mark Twain used
to take his "copy" rouud personslly to
varloua editors, which gave rise to a
rather good story of hlni toM recently.
His dislike of Office boys Is very greet.
Indeed, If there Is a lielng on earth be
cannot tolerate it Is the average offlce
boy. A abort time ago he strolled Into
a big publishing house In New York
nnd asked to see the editor. 1
"What name shall I give?" asked tbe
offlce boy.
"Mark Twain."
"What's your business?''
Tbe pertinent question Irritated Mark,
but he only sinllcd sweetly and said:
"Tell tbe editor I wish to ask his
hand in holy matrimony
Doesn't Like Fiddling.
Edward W. Carmack of Tennessee,
who was defestod for re-electlou to the
sauste by "Piddling Bob" Taylor aud
whose term expired on March 4, was
asked by some benevolently Inclined
ladles to buy tickets to a musical en
tertaiuinent for charitable purposes.
"What kind of music will It bet"
aaked Senator Carmack.
"It ia to bo a violin recftal," was the
answer.
"Don't want them." aaid the senator.
"I don't like that kind of music."—

Gam* of Thought Reading.
This is a good It*®*, which If skill
fully csrrled out will very successfully
mystify the whole company.
It la nocassary that the player who la
to take the part of thought reader shall
have a confederate, and the caine la
then played aa follows:
The thought reader, having arranged
that the confederate should write a
certain word, commences by asking
four members of the company to each
write a word upon a ot pspcr.
fold It up In such a manner that It
cannot be aeen and theu to pam It ou
to him. The confederate of course vol
unteers to make one of the four and
writes the word previously agreed up
on. which Is. we will suppose, "llsat
tugs."
The thought reader places the slip*
of paper between his finger*, taking
can to pnt the paper of hla confeder
ate between the third and little linger,
lie then takes the folded paper from
between bis thumb and first flnger and
rubs It, folded ss It Is, orer his fore
head, at each rub mentioning a letter,
aa 11 (rubi, A (rub), 8-T-I-N-U-8, after
which he tails out that some lady or
gentleman has written "nestings." "I
did," replies the confederate.
The thought render then opena the
paper, look* at It aud slips It luto bis
pocket. He has, however, looked at
one of the other papers aud la there
fore In a position IQ spell another
word, which he proceeds to do In the
same manner, aud thus the game goea
on until all the papersjhavo been read.
Fun For Boys on the 100.
An excltiug form of winter sport in
which Canadlau boys excel la barrel
racing ou the Ice. Ordinal-}' barrels,
with their beads removed, are placed
at regular Intervals along the rare
course for about a quarter of a mile.
Then at a given signal nil the boys
skate for the first barrel. Mnny reach
It together, and as encli skater must
crawl through all the barrels In order
to win It la to be Imagined that there
Is quite n scramble for first turn. Some
times a barrel wheels completely
around while the l>oy Is working hla
way through It, and when he cornea out
he Is so confused (lint he skates off In
the wrong direction. Usually the Inugh
of the spectators makes lilni real Iso his
blunder, and lie quickly turns about
and tries to make up for lost time. It
la quite an exctlug sport nnd an In
teresting one also for the spectators,
as the I toys and barrels lioli alraut In
the most amusing fashion.—Chums.
Some Ways of Falling.
A visitor from another city here on a
tour of Inspection of the public schools
came to a West Philadelphia school the
other day wheu the pupils were writ

his pet hobby of avoiding superfluity
In the use of wards. One l»oy had writ

had written tbe aentence. "Backward."

A New Aid Fable.
This ia not a George Adc fable, though it may sling some
slang. It ia a llomc Aid fable.
Once there waa a Geexer, who sat around and cut Kindling
too small for Cook Stove purposes. He Whittled against Time
and Flabbergasted againat his Town. The town was No Good,
he said—strictly on the Blink. Yea, it was N. G. Why,
hadn't he lived Here since 'B4 and found that the Place was
Punky? Sure, Mike!
Look at that town over in tho next County. Grown like
Jonah'a Gourd. Must be a Jonah here. We've grown some,
but I don't see that we're knocking any particularly Big Per
simmons. That's the way this Gaxaboo knocked his town.
One day a Sarcastic Stranger floated Into the Town that
waa Knocked from the burg that had Blossomed like Jonah'a
Gourd. He Heard some
wl
got over all this Hum Business >, C*r* ago. We pusseil Resolutions
that we would trade at home slut help our own town to Spread
out so that you otrnld Sight It on the map without using Opera
Olsseea. But yon and a Hunch of other folks In this town have
wasted your Substance lu Hlolons Expenditures In Chicago by
mall and let the sheriff hsng out the 'Nothing Doing* sign In
front of some of your own town's mercantile Kmporlums I,ook
at our Town and then look at youra. What mnltes tha OlfTer-
Whereupon the Whittling Gazaboo threw u few well cho
sen Thoughts into his mental makeup and went down to the
village atore to Annex a linen collar in place of the Paper
Circles which ho had bought front Chicago at Two Btt» a Boi.
MORAL: If you want your town to
grow, patronize home enterprises.

ten yards ahead of his oppoueut and
bsd finished tbe distance In slxty-oue

was a full leugth lu the lead and go

Prom this 'point it was Just a ques

Coming down the last length of tbe

and although Handy bad swum a hun

New Yorker heat him to tbe flual math,
winning by a shade orer 100 yards.
All American records from 230 yards

HINTS FOR FARMERS
Molasses Fsr Beef Cattle.
The Texas agricultural cxiwrlment
at at lon has Just finished some Interest
ing experiments In cattle feedlug. The
results are summarised below:
The addition ot molasses to a fatten
ing ration always produced an In
creaaed gain.
The addition of molasses to a ration
of cottonseed meal and bulls lowered
the cost of gain.
When molaaaes was added to a bal
anced ration It gave larger galna and
Improved the appearance of the cattle,
but did not lower the coat of gain.
There waa no undealrable result from
feeding yearling steers one gallon of
molasses each per day, and there Is
good reason to Itelleve that larger
amounts might be naed.
The Cars of Fesls.
Never allow the foal to follow the
mare when working, but keep It in a
well built, roomy box.
Never expect the foal to eat with the
mare, but always provide a small box
In the opposite corner to feed the foal
In.
Accustom the colt to lielng handled
by having a hulter ou and occasionally
taking hold of It when feeding the
mare.
Never wean the foal too quickly, but
by degrees. It Is liest for both tho
mare aud foal to take two or three
weeks to do It. Peed the foul ufteu,
both during the time of uml after
weaning.
Feeding Shorts to Calves.
If you arc feeding aborts or bran to
the calves remember that these sub
stances should never be fed In tho
milk. The reason for this Is that they
coutslii a goodly proportion of starch,
in tbe process of digestion starch Is
acted upou by the saliva, which
changes It Into sugar. Where such
foods are mixed with milk and the call
gulps them down very little saliva lie
comes mixed with the starchy food,
and conaequently It passes through the
calf In an undigested form. The lesson
is— feed such things as bran aud shorts
d»y.
Alfalfa For Cold Regions.
The department of agriculture has
beeu aearchlng the world over for
hardy alfalfa seed for the extreme
north, nnd on the wind swept plains of
Siberia, far to the north, where the
thermometer often stands 40 degrees
below aero nnd where there -la little
rainfall and little snow, Professor N.
H. nansoii has discovered n variety of
alfalfa and varieties of clover wlilch
Secretary Wilson lielleves will Ist of
great value for the dry land nreas of
the west. The ~h!falfn Is extremely
hardy nnd bears a yellow flower.
.*• Bull la Not Everything.
In buyiugtlie bull that Is expected to
lie "half the herd" do not expect too
much of blm unless the females be
mates with are of a type analogous
to hla owu. The full blood aire may
do more than half, but ho cannot do
It all, therefore do uot expect to seo
tbe first cross duplicates of the sire
unless the dam Is of similar t.V|ie. Be
ginning, however, with any kind of
cows, "breeding In line" for a few
yeara will fill yard and pasture with
tho kind of lieefers the market paya
the best prices for,
'Money In Fruit.
Orchards well located and In full
bearing are worth anywhere from SSOO
to 91,000 per acre, according to their
location and nearness to good mar
kets. Many a ten or twenty acre or
chard has paid to Its owner tho full
purchsse price with oue season's crop.
Good orchards canuot be bought for
auy price, became their owuers know
that they cauuot Invest lu anything
that will pay the same dividends.
Tho Ags of Hons.
The age of beus Is an Importaut mat
ter. When they are old heus they will
lay but few eggs aud will not iuy at all
In cold or Inclement weather. It Is not
advisable to keep theui fur more tliau
three years, sfter which they should lie
replaced by pullets. It pays better to
get rid of the old bens after their third
laying season.—A. V. Meerscb in West
ern Poultry Journal.
Shoeing the Farm Horss.
The farm horse Is shod too much.
Unless niiich road work Is required
IRtle shoeing Is necessary. A foot
keeps lu natural coudltion louger un
shod. Tbe frog performs Its natural
functions better. Tlie burse works
more easily over plowed laud or lu
mud. A hare foot cltugs to a door or
other sllppory places better than a
smooth shoe.
Sheep Barns.
The two requisites of a sheep barn
are dryueaa and veutllatlon. Damp
ness Slid drafts will bring ou pneu
monia, and dampuess lu the litter will
cause foot rot and kindred Ills. Too
much best will bring tuberculosis. But
once have dry quarters and plenty f
air, and full half of the risk of sheep
ralalng will be eliminated.
Profit In Hogs.

FOR THE HOUSEWIFE
Flavoring Soup.
Tbe art of nensoniiiK and flavoring
bears the name relation to the science
of cookery tUat poetiy docs to litera
ture. It la bore that distinction lu cook
ery la attained, aad skill and delicacy
of taste will have their widest fleld of
action. It U here that one realizes fully
the meaning of tbe proverb "By their
works ye shall know theui."
Perhaps the safest rale for tho ama
teur lu cookery to oliaerve lu flavoring
Is moderation- a tiny hit of onion, a
(talk of celery, two or three pepper
corns, a slugle clove, « sprig of para
ley, |Mirt of a bny leaf, a teaapoonful
of burned sugar or a little caramel col
oring, no flavor predominating, ail
blended Into a harmonious whole.—
What to Eat
Polaon Antidotes.
Every housemother should know what
to do In case a wrong drug la adminis
tered. If an Injurious drug la spilled
on the skin tbe part should be Imme
diately immersed lu water to dilute the
poison. A buru from crude carbolic
add should lie bathed with alcohol. If
carbolic ncld Is swallowed give milk
and lime water. Caustic potash and
amuioula are perhaps more frequently
swallowed by children thnu are other
poisons, aad the best antidote Is some
such acid as vinegar or lemon Juice.
An emetic that Is always available Is
a mixture of mustard and water, and
running the Angers down the child's
throat will often make It vomit.
Horns Hints.
To make potatoes white when cook
ed let them lie (pared) In cold water
for two or three hours.
To relieve a sick headache try In
haling spirits of ammonia, and drtuk
very hot water Just flavored with lem
on Juice.
The habit of biting off thread among
young women damages good teeth and
Is prolific of sort* throat and even
blood imlsonlug.

tho chair, in connection with the
hanger are adjustable fastenings to
hold the seat In any position desired
to accommodate chlldreu of various
ages. This chair attachment can also
be used for barbers' chairs to udapt
them to children's uses.
The Kitchen Sink.
(Jreat care should is' taken In keep
ing the kitchen sink clean, whether
new or old. It should have a thorough
scruhhlug down with boiling water
after every dish washing. Au occa
sional flushing with a solution of soda
or copperas will keep even the oldest
one clean ami free tho pipes from
grease. All wood should be removed
from the stnk. Modern plumbers use
Iron Instead of lead pipes almost en
tirely.
Grease Bpot Remover.
To reinovu grease from the finest
fabrics without injuring them use the
following preparation: One quart of
rainwater, two ounces of ammonia,
one teaapoouful of saltpeter and ono
ounce of shaving soap, cut up tine.
Place a part of absorbent cotton or
blotting .paper under the spot In the
garment when rubbing It.
To Clean Varnish.
Tea leaves are Invaluable as a means
of cleaniug varnished paint. Wheu
sufficient leaves have been laid aside
they ahould be placed lu a tin basin
full of water and soaked for half an
hour. The tea when strained should be
used instead of soap and water to
Clean the varnished surfaces.
