Our capitalist hogs with all their feet in the trough have been trampling the children to death these many years, with the sweatshops in the' cities and the poverty on the farms. We ought not enforcedto stand by unmoved Wedding Pranks It is pleasing to know that among thoughtful people of good breeding wedding \jokus\ arc- becoming rarer, for such people realize more and more th.it the marriage ceremony often is almost as solemn a matter to the near relatives of the contracting parties as a funeral, and it is out of regard for such feelings that young people of good breeding feel that ordinary clown antics and rowdyish hilarity are distinctly out of place. Nevertheless, as Abe Lincoln is quoted as saying, \For those who like that sort of thing, I should think that that would be just the thing they would like.\ One chief reason for so behaving is that it has come down as a tradition, aod the lower brute instinct for mischief is released without bounds, while mothers weep and fathers grieve as almost in the death chamber, itself. Of course, the young folks mean no harm, but it is to be hoped that they will learn better in time. Generous Appreciation A good friend, Albert M. Haley, for- merly of Bucks Bridge but now pro- prietor of the Painesville, Ohio, Steam Laundry, writes the following kind words:— \I am always interested in the news from Madrid and tile surrounding coun try and I am pleased to know the village has such a splendid paper to give the town the prominence i t deserves. I am certainly pleased at the frankness and fairness of your expression of the news. I think you have one of the best editor ial pages I have seen in a country weeklj I hope your paper is'well supported.\ Many people have noted with disfavor the measure for food conservation this Spring whereby boys and girl's were allowed to leave school t o work on the i farms and at the same time to receive credit for passing regents examinations at school. One of the first effects notice- able was the rush t o leave school on the part of many students whose work was habitually poor and who hoped by this j very means to \pass\ through subjects which otherwise -would be doubtful for them, or perhaps hopeless We can hardly blame the boys and girls,, for? they are not old enough to b e responsi-'; blein such matters, and the natural ten dency to skip school and shirk- study were too strong for many of -them to resist. Not that all those who left school were poor students, but we are well convinced by observation and in- quiry that from one quarter to one-third of the young folks who left school were of that kind and also that same propor- tion failed to engage in useful work— they simply slapped school and loafed. As we said already, we do not blame these boys and girls, out we do blame the originators and administrators .of the idea. Whatever gain was accom- plished was at a price wholly incom- mensurate with the loss never to be made good in the education of a large portion of the 150,000 boys and girls in this State who thus broke up their school work. Besides, the injury to' character in the experience of the host who made a sly scheme and a joke of it, constitute a tragedy to thoughtful peo- ple. Eurther, the unfairness to the honest plodders who remained in school and perhaps failed in examination while the scheming loafer got through on \Farm Credit,\ amounted to deep heartburning -with mauy and has been very discouraging to many an honest student. This sacrifice of our boys' and girls' welfare is Bhamefully characteristic of the capitalist system under which we live. Why didn't the rich robbers who have created an artificial scarcity in cars and fuel and food supplies furnish our farmers wilh improved machinery that would more than make up for what children could do? Or why didn't our government do it? Or why don't they guarantee the farmer a profit from his crop? Truly, this sacrifice of theohildren by our cruel and awkward capitalism is fCoimtimiuied from Paig-e; Eight) CHlPfyfAN The many friends of Elizabeth Veitch aire sorry tflf luear that she is receiving treatment ait the Hep- buirai (Hospital and is under treat- ment preparatory to aiq operation folr (goitre.

Some people in the village whose knowledge of farming is limited, to put it mildly, or who have business reasons for saying farming pays, declared that article wide of the mark, foolish or even crazy, but several substantial farmers have assured.us that it is a fair and accurate statement of fact, that it is under rather than over the mark. Let uf further consider . this matter. Some of these village fellows say: \Huh! feeding cows grain ten months in the year! A farmer don't have to do that!\ There is a dairy of about twenty-two cows not far from Madrid' that feeds but little grain, and the milk from that dairy \brings barely Sa 800 per year evMi at present prices. But those twenty-two cows require the labor of six or seven able- bodied persons, who thus are receiving less than a dollar a day for their year-round work, for as stated last week, the • incidentals from pigs and calves can be set over against incidental expenses. One farm lias ten cows which are well fed and last year produced milk at $1,200 from the creamery. This year that dairy may get $1,500. Two adult persons do the work. Their figures might run about thus:— Living for family one month Cost of Team and Harness General Depreciation, Taxes etc. Total §40 2o 30 05 French Avenge Desecration of Graves by Destroying German Monument $95 per one month means $llii0 for twelve months, but this family feeds probably §300 worth of grain, or more, to their cows, so that their $11150 of expense plus their $300 or worth of grain will eat up completely all the balance, although the grain doubtless more than pays for itself in the increased yield of milk. Take another cas». A certain 10-cow dairy got §615 at the creamery last year and may get $S50 this year, but they feed very little grain. Nevertheless, the above table of expenses showing §95 per month, or $1160 per year, of ineseapable expense! Where are their savings? Take stiil another case. Three adult persons run a 10-cow dairy that last year brought $410 at the creamery; this year perhaps $600, perhaps not quite, for they feed no grain. The expenses must be met there, too, just the same as above, but they are in the hole, for sure, not less than $400 this year. \But says Grunter, \they don't seem to be making bad debts they can't pay.\ Perhaps some of them are not. If so, they're living on less $40 a month, which means that they are living on less than human beings should live on. Also, they may not be paying bnt little of that general depreciation cost this year by losing no cattle, having no sickness bills and having to put on no new roofing or paint but, sure as night follows day, that $30 a month deprecia- tion has got to be paid sometime. Bear in mind, too, that all the farmers mentioned above own their places, although two of them, we understand are somewhat in debt. How those fellows hope ever to get ahead beats me. It is no wonder that a lot of them are thinking of giving up farming—then where will the rest of us get food? , One farmer whose word passes everywhere as good as gold told me this week that, year in and year out, he could clear more profit by putting the $15,000 investment he has in his farm out at 5 per cent and get $750 per year for it, than by doing his best and working like a slave as he does now.

Many years ago the granite obelisk! that stood sentinel before the palace) of Rameses HI, at Luxor,- 1 for morej than thirty centuries, was taken ta| Paris. Its erection In the Place de la[ Concorde was marked by a fine ex-' ample of civic courage. It had been! brought from Egypt by the engineer! Lebas in a river boat specially con-; structed at Toulon, to navigate the! Nile and the Seine. This boat wasj towed through the sea by a warship.! When the cables used in raising the! obelisk were strained almost to break-i ing Lebas placed himself under the| enormous stone as it began t o move.! If a single cable had broken all wonld^ have been over with the engineer. Ex-'' plaining his hardihood Lebas said It was to show the crowd of onlookers! that he was sure of his. calculations, A single error and be would have been crushed, and he preferred a tragic end to dishonor. \This said Le Crl de! Paris, \was in 1886, before our day of interviews and Lebas occupied only ri\ tew lines in the Constitutionel, no' more, no less, than the periodical ad- ventures of the sea serpent.\ THE AVERAGE REFORMER. [National Crop v -Imuruvonient Servieo.3 The average rerormer having SG tttle at stake himself, plunges aboul like a bull in a china shop, regard- less of the results of his ardor. An amusing incident is told of the Secretary of Commerce. The can manufacturers put up a howl that unless they could get tin-plate tc make up, no canning of fruits and vegetables could be done, so without looking over the field it is said that an order was made that steel was to be diverted by the manufacturers from other projects and put at the disposal of the can manufacturers. It looked all right on the face of it, | but when the manufacturers of har- vesting machinery demanded steel which they contracted for, and found that there was not steel for aprons, It having been diverted to cans, a hurry-up call modifying the order was issued, so that our harvesting l| machines could be made In time for the growing crop. This illustrates how many plans are ignorantly made Tobbing Peter to pay Paul. Every enthusiast who has a pet reform which is always hitting some other business instead of his own, never looks around to see what the effect will be before ha plunges. The manufac- turers of feed and the most success- ful feeders in the country have a right to demand that that delicate machine—the dairy cow—shall not be wrecked by hasty legislation. Revolutionary reforms are seldom efficacious. Anything which disturbs the food equilibrium should be handled gradually. Experience has shown that the most efficient way to handle cereal products is to remove the human food first and feed the residue to stock. Any other system is sheer extravagance.

A sailor was sick arid he found that No. 47 in his book was the indicated rem- edy, but alas! the bottle of No. 47 was empty, so he took equal parts of No. 40, which was strychnine, and No. 7, which was carbolic acid, and added them together and made No. 47 —and the sailor died. The application of this old story is that many a feeder will think that If a little of cottonseed or oilseed meal is good, a whole lot will be better. And, like the man who put the green spectacles on the horse and fed him shavings—just after he „ got him trained the horse died. It is human nature to experiment in feeds, and the poor cow has to suf- fer for an overdose or an underdose before the proper ration is esUb» lished. •£..§..$. •£«^$.«§««g..3.«3.«§.«£.*£,«$.*j«*§««f*«}M$,.{i*{,«|M|*^t<|«4.'4|( * Madrid Bank I 3% Interest f.rom | paid on certificates of + date of deposit | + | deposit if deposit is f t left six months. $ $ $ I | A.
