M. H. Gunsenhouser,
It was Grover Cleveland who said he had Congress on
his hands." Information from Washington indicates that
Woodrow Wilson can say he has Congress on his neck.
If you are not satisfied with the results ot 1915 turn over
a new leaf and go to it. A new year, 1916 is here waiting
your pleasure, offering you an opportunity to make all the
improvements you can.
Mr. Bryan continues to protest his "personal loyalty
to the Pressdent, and at the same time he sticks the knife
into the President's policies. It is plainly not a case of
"love me, love my dog."
The last Democratic convention to be held at St. Louis
renominated Grover Cleveland—who was defeated at the
ensuing election. The next convention at the same place
will renominate Woodrow Wilson—who will likewise be
' The Post Office Department asks for an increase of 44
per cent in the salaries of the heads of the four bureaus.
Perhaps the Postmaster General figures that since the sal-
aries of many clerks and carriers have been cut, the sav-
ing is great enough to justify the increase in the pay ot
men at the head of the service.
' One of the jolliest Thanksgiving dinners on record this,
year was held in the city of Brooklyn, in the club house j
of the Progressive Club of the Fourteenth^ Assembly Dis-
trict. It was in celebration of the club's return to the
Republican party, ir. token of which the Club has voted
to change its name from Progressive to Republican.
Appointing Tammany men to office, seeking to placate
Senator O'Gorman in matters of New York patronage,
putting forth Dudley Field Malone with a statement favor- ;
Ing Tammany's nominees—these are the sure signs that
Woodrow Wilson's campaign for re-election is under way,
and that nothing shall be left undone to secure success,
even to surrender to Tammany.
Third Assistant Postmaster General Dockery tells in his :
annual report how successful the Postal Savings Bank has ;
been. He probably does not realize that he is giving an j
indirect slap at his chief, Postmaster General Burleson,!
who as a member of Congress from Texas, voted against
the postal savings bank bill. > Fact is, every vote against |
the bill was cast bv a Democrat.

If the Republican party was showing as much worry as,
to who would be its candidate for the presidency as is |
those interested in the success of the Democratic party |
this would be a land of worriment for sure. One thing is
certain there will be no back door administration as is the
case now. Col. E. M. House is the real president under
the present administration and is dictating the policies.
A tax on gasolene, as proposed by Secretary McAdoo,
would make every garage in the country a Republican (
recruiting station, just as all the telegraph and express]
offices and telephone exchanges now are. Whenever a j
man has to slap on a stamp or pay an enhanced price,
through a direct tax, his thoughts inevitably turn in no|
gentle fashion, toward the people who have mulcted him.
One of Germany's chief sources of strength in this war
is her ability to furnish almost everything needed to carry
on operations. She is able to do this because she has pro-
tected her home industries, fostered and encouraged them ,
until the time the struggle came on they were strong
enough to yield a great return on the investment. How,
would it be with the United States werewe at war. Could
we anyway near support an army and those who stay atj
home with goods produced at home. It is time to think i
of nreparednes. along these lines where benetits may be|
derived, not only during war but all the time during peace, j
With the present high taxes our democratic farmers are
not «oin£ to look upon the special session with as much]
complacency as they would at any other time. We had,
an old time democratic office holder say that next year!
the taxes would be lower, because it would be campaign
vear and that taxes were always lower in those years.
Rut he said that wont work with me any more, as I am
letting tired of being set down as a fool every |two years.
* He admitted that he had been fooled before .but the game
had been worked on him for the last time. He was not
in favor of a special session and when he votes next time
he is going to make his kick effective. 9 ■

METHODS FOR FEEDING MEAL 1 •/U:> ingale & Duff.

I Practical Experience Has Shown That
j It Is Most Economical to Mix
Meal With Ensilage.
; The plan for cutting the fodder or
hay and mixing tha bran, millfeed and
cornchop with it and feeding it mois-
tened is preferable, in our opinion, to
any other method, says a writer in
Baltimore American. By feeding meal
dry or made into dough some pvtion
of it will pass into the fourth stomach
and escape only partially digested.
The plan of mixing the meal with
water and making a thick slop la
j preferable to feeding it dry or in a
I doughy state.
I The meal then passes, as it does
I when mixed with the feed, into the
j rumen or paunch, whence it is passed,
after undergoing rumination, into tha
reticulum or second stomach, in a
condition fitted for perfect digestion
in the third and fourth stomachs and
If ensilage is fed, mix the meal with
the er.3ilage. This methed of feeding ^
we have followed for a number of
years with milk cows and fattening
cattle, and after careful tests, know GJJ
I from practical experience that It 18 id*
I the most economical way to feed meal.
There is no waste of teed and a larger 1
quantity of milk may be given. : gj
FILL DITCHES AND GULLIES gl
Stones Are About Best Material for fjnli
Filling Depressions—Water Is Per-
mitted to Drain Through. j rffU
(By R. I. THROCKMORTON. Kansas
The little ditches and gullies that
form on rolling farms grow rapidly if
neglected, and deep channels with ,
steep sides result. By stopping the ■
flow ot the water in these small j
streamlets with such material as straw, ,
brush and stones, they can be made (
gradually to fill themselves. Such ob- , ^
structions cause the soil to be deposit-
ed ana the ditch will be filled up back |
of the barrier. If measures are not -fa
taken to prevent the small depressions ^
I on a slops from growing, they rapidly , -JpJ
| enlarge in tnree directions, becoming i ^
I deeper, wider and longer. | rfa
The best way to stop up small j
1 ditches and make them fill up is to j ~fa
mane a dam of stones. Stones are
about tne oest material for this pur-
pose, because they collect the sedi
ment ana at the same time let the wa-
ter drain through, and a water hole
is not formed. rJU
When a ditch is very shallow, only
a tew inches deep, a board held in
place with stakes Is often sufficient ,
to stop further erosion. Straw is also
l very good for these shallow ditches.
1 It is very effective in catching tho
soil, Dut. is sometimes washed out by
a hard rail). Cornstalks are even bet-
ter than straw. Brush can he used.
too. nut is nardly dense erwugh when
used alone. Straw and brush togetner j
are better than either alone. If ce- j
ment aams are built, some way must
be provided for the water to get
through, or else a pond will be formed.
Cement dams are really not wortn the
Donl Tolerate WeakHnga.
In yotir culling weaklings should
never be tolerated. Kill and bury the
runts and crowheads. Roup 1b infec-
tious and the weaklings are the ones
to first become infected.
