But they don't cem to rot 'erd bit. (See the joke?) Speaking of the tariff "Honest" John Sherman savs that it -is '"a questibn between the diversified in vdustries and that of a single (agri- cultural) interest with a few black- smith and carpenter shops scattered through the country." According to this the farmers with a few scat- tering blacksmiths and carpenters ire insignificant trifling and incon- iderable and are not to be taken into calculation in considering the tariff. It is to be hoped that the former...

He says ho 'encases the ham in a cheap domestic bag. Hay is placed in the bottom of the bag and hay around the ham. He hangs his hams not later than the last of February. He says the fly does not make its ap- pearance in this latitude until about the 1st of March; and the object is to hang the meat before the fly does appear. The hay not only absorbs the moistuie from the ham but its presence between the cloth and the meat prevents the insects reaching the meat through the domestic. He says he has practiced this plan for fifteen years and during that length of time neTer had the least trouble with any kind of fly or insect. He has kept hams in this condition five years.
