Those high in public life who used
their olllcen for private gnin and for the
practice of Illegal husWicm were held
up before the jury an men worse than
thlcvi and robbers.
"It ban Ixeii intimated by the do
fonpo in thin enne," raid Mr. Henry,
"that I have told tlm witmwpes when
umy caum neiore uio grana jury us
witnesses that I was notaftor,tho little
IIhIi, hut nfter the big onoa. It ban
bein insinuated that hack of my move
ments lurked a political motive, hut I
need only to bring thla to mind for you
to know how falno It Is. Though tho
defenno has never been able to get a
witnena to nay that I told him I was
after the big llnh, I will nay it myself.
I am after the big fish, anil an long as
there Is a book and it line or a bit of
tackle In the government box I will
keep 'after them. Graft is ruining
Kunnla today; graft ruined Home, tho
aucieutempiroofthewoi.il, and, mi

Turning to the defendanta and their
motives, the attorney held that when a
guilty man attempts to prove defense
for himself lie always hews as close to
the truth ns ionnihlo. "Hut crime
leaven its ncur upon the conscience nnd
tlm mind," said Mr. Heney, "until if
wu open wide enough the .window s of

It In this consciousness of scar that has
led the defendants in this case to plan
tho defence they have. I am after the

Much more space Is necessary prop

the necessary combinations of food to
make a properly balanced ration, than
tho average paper can give to tho sub

at Washington has Issued some- very
good bulletins and some very poor
ones. Decidedly ono of the best Is
farmers' bullotln No. 22, which covers
tho subject of feeding farm animals
quite exhaustively. It not only gives
tables of balanced rations, but tho
analyses of different combinations nnd
their digestibility. Write to tho Sec
retary of Agriculture, Washington, D.

save you money If you will follow Its
teachings. Hotter send for It now so
as to try and raise so nip of tho crops
which will furnish the valunblo protein
so necessary In a balanced ration.
