Secretary ot State, W. J. Bryan,
whoee attitude in refusing to serve
liquor at state dinners has been so wide
ly commended has eaid some splendid
things. “It is a horrible indictment
against a community,” says Mr. Bryan,
“to say of it that it is not free to act on
the liquor question as it pleases—that
its officials can be bullied and intimi
dated by those who set man-traps for
the young and conspire against morality.
There is scarcely a representative in
any state legislature who does not have
to deal constantly with the liquor ques
tion. How can a representative of the
brewery or distillery or saloon act with
fairness or impartiality? Every mem
ber of congress, every senator and every
executive, has this question constantly
before him: how can he he true to his
conscience and to the public if he owes
bis elevation to those who dispoii our
citizenship and degrade our civilization.”

WINTERING THE HORSE.
Idl» Animals Need Exercise and • Fair
Amount of Feed.
The horse In winter should not be
stall tle«l all day, but should have
plenty of exercise. Turned Into the
well fenc«*d [widdock. the horse's ex
ercise will take care of Itself. He
should be fed and watered at regular
times. The f«*«*d need not be large.
It is worse to founder a horse than to
underfeed him. Oats, corn aud hay.
an occasional bran mash and the
horse should winter in excellent shape.
The currying should not be forgotten,
The proverb says that It La worth good
oats to curry. When hitch«*«! in the
cold they should la* blanket*«!. Horses
are susceptible to colds and pneumo
nia and veterinarian's bills, but they
may all be prevente«! If the proper pre
cautions ar«* taken.
If one has work for his horses In
winter, s<> much the better. The most
common mistake Is undcrfe»*ding them
at tliLs season and a consequent re
sumption of hard work in spring in III
conditions. It does not pay to have
dull tools nor inefficient horses. One
cannot afford to put up with either.
Just exercise a little hor.se sense in
ftssling and caring for the horses this
winter and see if ft does not pay tmth
in efficiency of the horses and satisfac
tion of the owner.
