In Henne pin county, In this state, 31 out of 33 men Indorsed by labor for tho state Ixtglsluturo and county ofllcora have been elected. These successes hnvo whetted tho appetites of tho labor mon and It Is the general opinion of the delegates who hnvo arrived hero that tho convention will dovoto at least two days to discussing a political pro gram. President Qompors feels greatly en couraged over the situation. Ho says Ik- has received scores of letters from mon outsldo of tho labor movomont In which they declare that they novor before fully understood whnt tho trade unionists of tho country stood for in n political way, and expressing sym pathy with tbolr alms and objects.

The demand for iork this year has astonished even tho most sangulno friends of the hc,g. Iloth fresh nnd cured meatn have lavn taken In largo volumo right along at prices which were w high thnt they woro exjiected to check consumption. There are three reasons why this condition hns existed nnd still exists. First Is the prosper ity of the South, a largo consumer cf cured meab. Tbo Southern trade wns novor larger than It is to-dny. Noxt U tbo growing foreign trade, which Ilko our own, seems to proceed regard less of prices. And. finally, tho ooplo of this cciuutry huvo learned to out bacon. Its consumption Is unprece dented In our history, and Is still grow ing. Thoro hns Ikhiii no shortage in numliers of hogs, but n vastly Increased demand. ThU Is why prophecies based on hog supplies hnve failed nnd are likely tei full In the future. Nntlonnl Stockmau. rnnturlnnr Clover.

One Is to let them hnve the opportunity to grow, nnd, by frequently cultivating them, turn them under ns fast ns they mnke their ap pearance; the other being to crowd them out by growing some crop that will not give the weeds n chance to grow. No system of cultivation will kill nil tbo weeds If n crop Is desired Huch as corn for the grass nml weeds will only be kept down so Ion(f ns cultivation lasts, especially as corn Is usunlly "lnld by" nt n time when the weeds are producing seeds, thus es tablishing themselves for the succeed ing year. As n tent of what supposed clean culture of corn may be, simply cut down n row of stalks nnd a row of weeds will remain. As n single weed produces Uiousnnds of seed, tho labor of destroying tbo weeds must bo re peated next season. nrlnd the Hay nnd Storcr.

You can build concrete foundations, sidewalks, fences, wnter troughs, cis terns, water tanks, shelves, cesspools, gutters, floors ot nil kind In the cellar, barn and Btnble, steps nnd stairs, well curbs, horse blocks, stalls, hog pens, troughs, chicken houscu. corn cribs, tea houses.
