Tub question of local politics is en
gaging considerable attention these days
and will continue to absorb more and
more attention nntil the primaries and
the election in June. Many people say
that conventions and primaries are set
np and jobbed and that the people have
no voice in the nomination of candi
dates. Yet these same people will not
give any of their time to the important
question of local self government.
Any political reform has to be started
in the primary and it the voters, who J
are dissatisfied with the politics of tl e
county as cow administered, would go to
the primary they might succeed in get
ting some changes. It is the duty of
all citizens to see that the primaries are
well attended and that delegates are
elected that will stand for the beet men
in the county for the nominees of tlie
party on the ticket. If the leading and
most public spirited citizens do not take
in local politics, they should find no
fault with the result. The basis of this
government is that the majority shall
rule and when this is honestly expressed
no fault should be fonnd if the result is
not to onr liking. OSdals will never
be elected that are above the ideals of

"I wish to say that I feel I owe my life
to Kodol Dyspepsia Cure," writes IJ. C,
Cbreatenson, of Hayfield, Minn." For
three years I was troubled with dyspep
sia so that I could bold nothing on my
stomach. Many times I would be ub
able to tetain a morsel of food. Finally
I was confined to my bed. Doctors said
I could not live. I read one of your ad
vertisements on Kodol Dyspepsia Cure
and thought it fit my case and com
menced its use, I began to improve
from the first bottle. Now I am cured
and recommend it to all." Digests your

The Kind You Hays Always Bought
Bacon Ho; For Heme Meat Supply.
I like lean pork, and if necessary to
have 600 lbs. for a family supply, I
would rather kill three pig than one to
furnish it. I recently killed a pig, 18
months old, which dressed 240 lbs. It
was not a profitable animal to market,
but very nice f r home uae. The out
side layer of fat on the carcass was not
over one inch thick. Such a bog would
have been considered a disgrace to the
one who raised it in my New England
neighborhood 25 years ago.
My practice in curing pork is lo cut
bams, shoulders and jowls a reasonable
size, to sugar-cure and smoke, and lung
up sparerihs and loins in a cool place
until needed to bake. Bake the head
right away. Boil the feet and shankt
Iresh. Make all the lean of the buck
and sides into sausage, the fat into laid,
and the bellies into bacon. Grind the
sausage in one of tlie little linuxeliolil
meat choppers and after seasoning it
with salt, pepper anil suite, sin IT into
cotton bag4 three inches in diameter and
two feet long.
The lat meat is all stewed for lard and
strained into five and 10 lb. lard pails to
sell or keep for future use. The hams,
shoulders, jowls and bacon f trips may
he put in a brine made as follows: 10
lbs rock salt, 4 oz. saltpeter, 1 to 2 lbs.
sugar. Dissolve in enough water to
cover 100 lbs. meat. Stir the brine with
a paddle every day while the meat is in
it. But trie small pieces in for three
weeks and the larger pieces longer.
Take out and hang to dry (or 43 hours,
and then smoke. Put in cotton bugs
and bury in wheat or oats until wanted.
Or the meat may be dry-salted in this
way : 10 lbs. dairy salt, 3 oz satlputer
and 1 lb. sugar. Hub the hams and
pack in a box as close as possible. Leave
for a week, rub again, and a third time.
In very dry climates it may be necessary
to sprinkle the meat with cold water in
order to have the salt "strike in."
