Six million two hundred thousaud
farmers' bulletins on n hundred ami
forty different subjects were printed
for the Department of Agrlculturo dur
ing tho past tlscal year. As thero are
about six million farmers, exclusive of
agricultural laborers. In tho United
States, this Is one pamphlet for each
one. If any farmer did not get his
copy, It was because he did not apply
for It, for they are nearly all turned
over to the members of Congress for
free distribution. There Is hardly a
subject In which farmers nre Inter
ested that Is not discussed In some one
of the various bulletins. Information
Is contained In them about the feed
ing of farm animals, hog-cholera, how
to kill weeds, the cure and fcedlngof
chickens, butter-making and tho care
of milk, tho vegetable garden, good
roads, breeds of dairy cattle, bread
making, bow to ralso apples, rice-culture,
tomato-growing, sugar as fowl,
Insects affecting tolmcco, cotton and
graneS; diseases of potatoctt and ap
ples, how to detect oleomargarine and
renovated butter, tree-planting on ru
ral school grounds, the Angora goat,
and scores of other things. It would
be dllllcult to estimate with any de-
fgree of accuracy the lluanclal benetlt
which has accrued to the farmers from
the perusal of these bulletins. Such
men as believe they must be continual
ly studying to keep abreast of tho
times and to understand tho posslhlll
ties of their business have tccu the
mont diligent readers of the publica
tion of tho Department of Agricul
ture. It is the benefit which these
mcu have derived that Justifies the
coutinucd expenditure of money by the
government for freo education of this
.kind, an education almost ns necessary
to national prosperity as that provided
for the children In the public schools.
Who that has noted the tide of Immi
grants which pours Into tho United
States every year has not asked him
self bow the stream becomes merged
In tho current of national life; how
these strangers are transmuted Into
American citizens? Without doubt
(he most Important agency Is the pub
lic schools. A college settlement which
has been studying the matter closely
has brought to light some most Inter
esting and encouraging details. "A
little girl of foreign birth and stam
mering tongue. In one of tho lower
grades, tells a visitor that the beauti
ful portrait of the Father of Ills Coun
try, which hangs upon tho schoolroom
wall. Is n picture of Buffalo BUI. This
Is the beginning. A few grades higher
up a group of boys of foreign birth are
celebrating Washington's birthday. In
mimic scene they reproduce the pro
ceedings of the Continental .Congress.
Statesman nfter statesman answers

from Virginia can hardy wait his turn

Whfi Steal Dogs. :
-M-H llllllllll M r !
Dog stealing In London has Increased
to a very large extent latterly, and the
profocstonal dog stealers, of whom
there arc many, are having n very pros,
porous time. A well-known West Knd
veterinary surgeon explained some of
the methods of the dog stealers.
Theso men," said he, "are by no
nutans ragged loafers, but well-dressed
persons of some address, many of thriu
well off," says the loudoii Kxprrss.
"They find out that n well-known so
ciety lady or gentleman has a dog
which Is taken for a walk dally. They
cultivate that dog's acquaintance with
surreptitious feeds, and then ono day
the man finds himself round a corner
alone with the dog, aud the theft Is
"Sometimes a decoy dog Is taken out,
especially In case where It Is desired
to steal an animal of tho larger kind.
Kensington Gardens nro the happy
hunting grounds of the dog thief nud
score of pet nre there stolen front
their owners. I should say from my
knowledge Hint at least fifty dogs a
mouth are stolen lu the West Bud
Generally speuktng, a lost, dog can al
ways bo recovered If ono goes the right
wny about It. Tor Instance, I got to
know a dog dealer who, though ho
would never steal n dog on his own ac
count, must, I niu morally certain, be
In touch with thoso who do. A client
comes to me with n talc of a lost dog
and prepared to spend money to get It
"I go to tho dog dealer, describe tho
animal, and ask hltn to keep his eyes
open for It. Very shortly ho comes to
mo and tells me for what sum ho will
be able to produce the dog. Sometimes
negotiations go on for mouths. Where
rewards are not forthcoming, or where
the police nro hot on tho Iraek, tho
stolen dogs are sent down to Club Bow
Jn Bethnal Green, where thero Is a salo
ovcry Sunday morning."
Thn Power of" Imagination.
An English, physician made an Inter
rating experiment not long ngo for thu
purposo of determining tho relatlvo
power of Imagination of tho sexes. He
doHctl 100 of his hospital patients with
sweetened wuter, and soon afterward
entered the room, In great apparent
agitation, saying that by mistake- ho
had administered a powerful medicine.
In a few, minutes four-fifths of tho pa
tients, mainly men, responded to tho
supposed emetic. Not u woman was

Winnie did much of her early literary

walls nro lined with liook shelves, nnd
a little gallery runs along tho upper
shelves. This was reached by n small
