Senator Dolph will make an earnest
effort to have the limit of cost of Port
land's public building increased from
(750,000 to (1,000,000. He started the
ball rolling by the introduction of a bill
for that purpose the first day that bills
were introduced in the -Senate. It is
passed at this session. There will he no
trouble In getting it through the Senate.
The stick will come in trying to have it
pass the House. The Senator's bill for
a public building at Baker City provides
for an appropriation of (100,000, and the
same amount is asked for a building at
The bill of the Finance Committee of
the Senate to allow national banks to
issue currency to the par value of the
bonds deposited by them in the Treas
ury is sure to experience very stormy
weather. One of the obstacles is Cock
rell's amendment directing the Secretary
of the Treasury to redeem the outstand
ing 2 per cent oonds bv a new issue of
greenbacks. Cockrell calculates that
more than (20,000,000 of the (25,000,000
of these bonds will be presented for re
demption, and that thus an issue of
more than (20,000,000 in greenbacks will
be put in circulation. It is understood
that he has also in reserve several other
propositions that will not be pleasing to
the national banks nor their friends. In
the Senate the new Democratic Senator
from Nebraska (Allen) is also prepared
to attack the bill with an amendment for
the suspension of interest on bonds de
posited hy tho national banks as the
basis for increased circulation.
Senator Puffer of Kansas has intro
duced ( by request ) two financial bills.
one of which provides for an issue of
(000,000,000 of legal-tender money on
sheets of aluminium or silk-threaded
paper, as the people may prefer. The
amount is to be covered into the Treas
ury as "surplus monev." and a call for
all the outstanding interest-bearing
bonds is to lie made, and they are to be
redeemed at par and paid for from the
surplus tuna, ine second measure is
headed the "New Silver Bill." and
directs the Secretary of the Treasury to
purrnase an ine gold, silver and sub
sidiary coins offered at any price, less
the cost ot transportation and mintage
without regard to the price in any
foreign country. The bullion purchased
is to be coined into standard coins at
the ratio of 18 to 1. No reserve is to be
held, excent a sufficiency to meet thn
general indebtedness ol the government,
For every dollar of gold and silver
coined the government is to issue (2 in
greenbacks to supplv the place of the
national bank notes. No special amount
ol bullion is to be purchased monthly,
but the purchase is to be so as to keep
the mints running at their full capacity.
In payments all three kinds ol currency
are to be usd, and discrimination
against any special class of it is prohibited.
Commissioner Miller of the bureau of
internal revenue, in response to an in
quiry made recently, issues an official
statement as to the'refusal of collectors
of internal revenue to receive checks in
pavment of taxes. Mr. Miller said:
"The impression seems to be general
throughout the pnnntrv that thn rafiiiul
of collectors of internal revenue to ac
cept checks in payment of internal
revenue taxes is in accordance with in
structions which have been issued by
the Secretary of the Treasury. No such
instructions hare been issued. The
fact is that until recently tbe collectors
have, at their own riskaccepted chwk.

It pays to be thorough. An Iowa
farmer In Prairie Farmer says: Three
fourths of the oata that are thin on the
ground are so because they have never
been covered, and the lone-continued
cold and wet weather has rotted all at
the surface. It is difficult to kill the
healthy germ of life when it is properly
protected. The same may be said of
timothy sown with the oata. My expe
rience proves that grass seed needs har
rowing in as thoroughly aa wheat or oats.
If there ia one thing more mortifvimr
than others in farming, it is to have a
half stand, especially meadow. It is a
waste of land and, what ia vet more pre
cious, a waste of time postponing until
nexi year wnai we should enjoy this
year. Herein lies the secret of many
tedious debts. A full crop will often lift
the mortgage, which hangs like a hog at
a root, so to speak. Besides the land has
as good a right to yield its utmost as I
have to expend my, strength and time.
And the land in these parts at least will
yield cheerfully if we but cultivate it
properly. There is a bonanza in every
quarter section of Iowa prairie for the
owner if he but works his mine as he
should. And the same land will "lan
guish and pine" and manifest it the
whole year round if its tilth, like its
owner, is half-hearted and slipshod. The
days of 15 and 20-cent corn are past,
never to return, ror this we are thank
ful. I have hauled oats twelve miles
and sold them for 12 cents a bushel.
But that will never occur again in Iowa.
Hence the farmer who is wide-awake to
his privileges will "push" things on his
farm. His farming will be diversified.
His farming will not be all corn any
more. But he will raise oata and rye
and other cereals and many tubers. The
spirit of thrift and largeness of enter
prise is seen on every hand among the

the swales are now with us of this sec

This is as it should be with diversified
farming; care in saving and looking
after what are called little matters will
soon make the farmers not only the most
prosperous, but the happiest class of
people in all the world.

four pounds per day per head and the
change from stable to pasture feed each
increased the yield of milk, but had very
little effect on its quality. In some re
spects the results obtained by Prof. Far

of butter fat, and will serve to reopen a

The new canes of the raspberries are of

might be said that they have outdone
themselves. Fifty fowls will produce a
barrel of droppings every two weeks, or
twenty-six barrels In a year; and these,
if used on berries, will add Prion rh tn
