"WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26. 1894
Politica have become bo pre-eminently
the province and occupation of the
American people that it naturally comes
to the front at all times and on all occa
sions. The smoke of battle has scarcely
blown away, and the. reasons why this
party won, or that party lost, satisfac
torily explained, before the business of
selecting other candidates and arrang
;ing new issues is began. ' Already the
field is being looked over for presiden
tial timber, and the name of Cleveland
is whispered about as a possible third
termer. This is the veriest nonsense.
Cleveland has occupied the white house
for about six years, will continue to do
so for two years more, and then he will
retire from public life. He has made an
indifferently good president, though he
has made some mistakes ; notably the
attempt to re-instate the Hawaiian
queen, and (as a political measuro at
least) the convening of congress to re
peal the purchasing clauee of the Sher
man act, when the silver question had
not been in iseue in the campaign which
terminated in his election. The trouble
with him is that he has not traveled
The country west of Washington, as far
88 his personal knowledge goes, may be
the great American desert. New York
is to him the center of the universe,
with Boston and Chicago situated just
within the circumference. New York
City is his Mecca and Wall street the
ehrine of his deity.
The next president should be a west
tern man; one who has had energy
enough to get out of the state in which
he was born and get a personal knowl
edge of the magnitude and resources,
of the country, and one who is not, and
never has been, the attorney for one or
more great corporations; a man of
the people, and of the whole people in
stead of Borne particular clas3. Cleve
land is not such a man, neither is, or
was, his predecessor. The next presi
dent should come from not further east
than Illinois, and preferably from west
of the Mississippi, though this latter
can hardly be hoped for. Wherever the
candidate of the democracy may come
from, however, it will not be Mr. Cleve
The next president will be a republi
can, and from present indications the
nominee will be either Tom Reed or
Wm. McKinley, and though geography
is against Reed, he will be elected if
nominated. The West is tired of New
York, and does not at present desire
any more of Indiana. However, there
is yet abundant time to grow and har
vest an average crop of piesidential pos
sibilities before the next national con
vention, and it may be the frosts will
catch those who sprouted too early.
SELECT THE SEED.
The following from the pen of Prof.
Cleveland Abbe, for a quarter of a cen
tury a professor in the weather bureau,
will no doubt be found of value, or at
least give germs of thought to the
reader. The ideas advanced by Prof.
Abbe were brought from him in re
spone to a letter concerning the rain
makers who have been operating in the
central Mississippi valley this season :
"Money should not be wasted on the
rainmakers, but spent on wells, ditches,
reeervoirs, irrigation, windmills, and in
other useful ways. An artificial pond
and a grove of trees 'encircling it to
break the wind would save more water
than the rainmakers can ever hope to
"The effect of a dry season is to per
fect seed that will prosper in a similar
dry season, and vice versa. The seed
tak.n from a dry field ontjlit to succeed
next year if planted in a dry field ; but.
of course, still better if planted in a
moist field. Ask your crop reporters
what their experience is in this respect.
The seed taken from the South and
planted in the North gives a late vari
ety, and vice versa. The seed carried
from moist to dry climates does poorly
at first, but eventually a variety is
evolved suited to the new climate.
Thus the grains of Europe aie gradually
adapting themselves to the climate of
our most arid regions, just as they have
done in southern Russia.
"Each farmer does something to pre
Tent the ill effects of a long drouth by
saving for next year's seed that which
ripened first in the dryest part of his
farm. This is a lesson that I have
learned from my study of climates and
crops. The variability of the climate is
harder on crops than its intrinsic sever
i y. " The seed is always trying to adapt
it-elf to the climate, but, of course, is
always a year behind." .

Sherman act. It is not very long ago
either that Mr. Wilson applied to Presi

Madeline Pollard is going to star, and
her manager expects her to make a great
hit. If the ladies of the country at large
will do as good and conscientious work
as those of Kentucky Miss Pollard will
be relegated to the shades of private life
as thoroughly as her partner the late W.
C. Breckinridge.' Miss Pollard may
have been more sinned against than
sinning, but however that may be, it is
no excuse for her using her malodorou8
actions as an advertisement.
DRAWBACKS OF FREE LIBRARIES
The Particular Book You Want Is Always
Out and the System of Fines Annoying.
Here is one man's -experience of a
free circulating library: "I gave my
reference and took out my first book.
It was good to scan the library list and
see the amount of literature I could
read free. The second time I wrote,
according to the rule, the list of cabal
istic figures which index the book, and
after nearly a half hour's delay I was
told that the one I wanted was 'out.'
Then I put down fresh sets of figures
and wasted more half honrs, but they
were all 'out,' until I finally took in
desperation -a book recommended me
by the young woman who disappears
for such an age to make the searches.
This book proved so uninteresting that
I brought it back next day and again
went through the figure list business
and the half hours of waiting, until I
wound up by repeating my previous ex
perience and taking a book by recom
mendation. "I threw it aside on reaching home
and forgot I had it until a postal warn
ing me of the due of one cent for every
day over two weeks in which I had it
had now set in. I turned up with it
when -eight cents were due, took out
another I didn t want and forgot it
until eleven cents were due, kept up
the business of fignre lists, waitings,
books I didn't call for and fines after
ward throughout a year until I might
far better have bought straightout the
books I wanted, but never got.
"At last one time with a book in my
possession I left town. jA siege of
postals and of visits from a mysterious-
looking man kept my servant busy. I
had forgotten all about the book, and
my friends were indignant over the
dunning of this individual. On my re
turn to town I -found that my refer
ence had been called upon to pay for
the book which I was in the position
of having stolen from the library, and
that my reputation was in an unpleas
ant fix. I now pay for my books."

A Little Daughter
Of a Church of England minister
cured of a distressing rasb, by
Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Mr. Richard
Birrs, the well-known Druggist, 20T
llcGill St., Montreal, P. Q., says:
I have sold Ayer's Family Medicines
. for 40 years, and have heard nothing but
good said of them. I know of many
performed by Ayer's Sarsaparilla, one
in particular being that of a little
daughter of a Church of England minis
ter. The child was literally covered
from head to foot with a red and ex
ceedingly troublesome rash, from which
she had snff ered for two or three years,
in spite of the best medical treatment
available. Her father was in great
distress about the case, and, at my
recommendation, at last began to ad
minister Ayer's Sarsaparilla, two bot
tles of which effected a complete core,
much to her relief and her father's
delight. I am sure, were he here to-day,
he would testify in the strongest terms
as to the 'merits of
