but tno effort was maMs to fix ratss
upon .any of these aifficles. It was
evidejsrt tiat the Senate and House
conferees were still far apart. Sev
eral ewbjects passed over in former
conferences then were taken up.
The entire zinc schedule was ad
justed. Spelter was made dutiable at
1 3-8 cents per pound, a reduction
from the Senate rate of T 1-2 cents
and an increase from the House of 1
cent. All of 'the Senate differentials
were adopted. Zinc sheets will be
dutiable at 1 3-4 cents, aud sheets
coated or plated with nickel or other
:inetal at 2 cents.
After a session retf little more than
halt an hour Friday , the Senate ad
journed until Monday, which is a clay
cardiw than would hawe been possible
nnder the unanimous agreement for
sessions only on each tfaird day wtale
the tariff bill is in conference. The
date was moved up in the hope that
the conlerence report on the tariff
bill might be in shapes to be presented
Senator Culbertson presented a
brief statement showing the record of
the Democratic party in the Senate
on the Payne-Aldrich tariff bill. He
asked for the printing of a series of
tables showing the votes of the Demo
cratic members on all the more lm-1
portant questions before the Senate '
in connection with the tariff in doing
so, he made a brief explanation.
"An impression seems to have been
created in some quarters," he said,'
"that in their action on the tariff
bill, which is now in conference, the
Democrats of the Senate have been
divided and have often voted with the
protectionist majority." He then
presented the record to show this im
nression to be unfounded.
Openly charging that the Congress
and the courts" had received and
were receiving valubale gifts, employ
ment or compensation from public
service corporations, trusts and per
sons engaged in interstate commerce,
or having an interest in legislation,
Mr. Randell -presented a resolution in
the House directing the Shaker im
mediately to appoint the judiciary
committee so that it may consider the
question of amending the law so as to
prohibit such conduct. The resolu
tion was voted down. .
The hide question was settled and
unsettled Saturday and while there
seemed little doubt that eventually
uiuvrn iu Ma XX. aiiiijuti 111c hu
articles on the tariff bill, the contest
over their status cannot be regarded
as 4osed. When the conferees ad
journed for luncheon several of them
said that it had been decided that
hides should go on the free list. Sat- J
urday night the same conferees de
clare that hides will be free, but that
that question has not been decided of
ficially. None of the questions made prom
inent throughout thfe country by Pres
ident Taft7,s interest in them has been
adjusted. The conferees spent a
large part of Sunday in wrestling
with these problems.

I meats made bv Senate and House
leaders, taken in connection with the
tt in Tr "l a. m J?x il. - 1 r 1
attituAe President Taft, the indi
cations are that the conference rates
upon 'tie important questions still in
dispute will be as follows :
Hides, free; oil, free; lumber,
nwragn, 1.25 a thousand feet, with
(proportionate differentials; coal, 45
cetrts a ton without the House re-
I ciprecal clause; iron ore, 15 cents a

GRINDING CORN FOR HOGS. x
Authr ities disagree as to the ad
visibility of grinding the corn for
hogs, some feeders claiming that It
does not pay for the cost and trouble
of grinding, while others think that
It does pay well
My experience is tnat some hogs
will chew corn well, while others will
not break half the grains. Usually a
young hog will1 chew its food better
than an old one. I fattened a hog
last year cn dry corn, but not ono
half of the grains were broken.
Where a hog will not chew its feed
well I think it will pay to grind its
Hojsg will not chew wheat well, ani
no hog will chew buckwheat well, so
these grains should always be ground
before feeding to hogs.
If corn is shelled and scattered on
a floor or on the ground so that the
hogs will have to pick up one grain
at a time they will chew it better
than when whole ears are thrown tq
