180G. THE ADVOCATE. 5 DOINGS IN CONGRESS. benalor lillman is said to bave re ceived 7.000 letters commending his speech. Senator Smith of New Jersey Bays that the most popular thing Congress could do would be to adjourn. The resolution to restore seed dis tribution by the national Department of Agriculture has passed the Senate. Republican Congressmen state in their speeches that the silver members of the party are trying to disrupt the organi zation. Senator Cullom has introduced a bill in the Senate providing for a $24 pension to every soldier 78 years old or older who served in both the civil and Mexican wars. It cost $100,000 to print the memorial addresses delivered over deceased Con gressmsn in a single Congress not many years ago. The average for each Con gress is over $50,000.

6 THE ADVOCATE. WHO PAYS THE TAXES V BY W. II. T. "WAKEFIELD. MO. II. Very few realize the supreme impor- . tanco of the question of equitable tax ation, yet historians are agreed that the decadence and downfall of nations has been due to inequitable and .op pressive taxation. Taxation of $20 per month, or even of half this sum, paid by a farmer, mechanic or business man, is like a big leak in a vessel he Is trying to fill, and when the leak is large enough his industry is exerted in pour ing water into a sieve. That our system of raising national revenues has lasted so long is due to two facts: First, by interested parties playing upon the feelings of national prejudice; and second, because no po litical party has yet advocated a better system. Very few, even among Re publicans, really believe in the trans parent fraud called "protection," but the theory has never been intelligently nor honestly opposed by Democrats, and no sufficient reason given for changing of party allegiance o...

1898. THE ADVOCATE. 7 Promises of the Enemy. Editor Advocate: I wish to writs a short article in regard to a certain ele ment in existence now in our midst, which in all probability, if not checked eoon by a timely warning, will do us great harm and eventually overthrow the glorious cause that we started out to accomplish. We have a great battle before us, and a terrible enemy to sub due before we shall be able to restore equal rights to a downtrodden and op pressed people, where they belong. We must bear in mind that old Satan has been loosed a little season, and is al ways on the alert, ready to take all undue advantage in his power, having his hosts now in line, well drilled, armed and ready for action, with great breastworks fitted and prepared for the occasion, and a false password in each subject's mouth called "redemption." The ambition of his existence has been to deceive, to lie, to cheat, and bring unto subjection all the true patriots that he possibly could. He is a great...

TIEIE ADVOCATE. 11 CELERY UNDER GLASS. sTor Late Spring and Early Summer Market, Bleaching the Houm Grown Prodnot. Celery goes out of the market in April, when the stored crop is exhausted, and until the early field product is re ceived, in July, celery is not to be ob tained. With a view to supplying the demand in May and June, experiments were begun four years ago at the Cor nell (N. Y.) station with celery under glass. Professor L. H. Bailey, who WIOTEB GROWN CELERY A-BLEACHING. makes the following report, claims that it jsa comparatively easy matter to grow celery for late spring and early summer use. He says: The seed is sown in late fall or early winter in fiats or seed pans. About one month after sowing the plants are prick ed out into other flats, where they stand three or four inches apart each way. A month or so later they are transplanted into beds, following lettuce, cauliflower, eta, thus for two months or more tak ing up little or no room, for the flats are placed in v...

12 THE ADVOCATE. February 10, Shadowgraphy A New Discovery. The scientific world has been for the past week turning most of its attention to the new discovery by Prof. Roent gen, of Germany, that of casting rays of light through opaque substances and registering on a photographer's plate shadows of the different sub stance through which the rays passed. The result and the important use of the discovery are best explained by the following instance, which is one of many of the same kind: A living human hand was "shadowgraphed" and the picture on the plate showed a light shadow the shape of the hand. Inside the outlines of the shadow was a darker shadow representing the bones, and inside of them was a still darker shadow cast by a leaden bullet which had been lodged in the hand. So there is no doubt but what the dis covery will be of great benefit in a medical way, and it can be made to serve the purpose of discovering the contents of wood, iron and other sub stances, without cutting o...

14 THE ADVOCATE. Fzsxuasy 10, DEST VARIETIES OF WHEAT. tlxtj DUTeient Kinds Tested at the Ohio Experiment Station. Sixty differently, named sorts of wheat were harvested at the Ohio experiment station in 1895. These wheats were grown on plots of one-tenth acre each, every third plot being sown to "Velvet Chaff Penqnits, a variety which has been used as a standard for several years. The season here, as throughout most ef Ohio, has been one of almost nn paralleled drought, and the wheat made only about one-third of a full crop. The variety test is not so satisfactory as it would have been in a favorable season. In the following statements the va rieties named are compared with the plots of Velvet Chaff between which they grew. Using this basis, the following seven varieties have yielded from two to four bushels more than the Velvet Chaff : Geneva, Mealy, Gypsy, American Bronze, Early White Leader, Early Genesee Giant and a new variety which we have named "Green. " The following 17 var...

16 LSD8. th:i2 advooats. Bt Bee jTcod For Winter At this eeason it becomes quite an important item as to how much is re quired for, safe wintering for the bees themselves. Authorities differ, varying from 10 to 25 pounds per colony, much depending on manner of wintering, the winter itself and the size of the colony. A bee keeper writing in American Gar dening says: For northorn climates I prefer the greater amount mentioned, and if the wintering ia to be done upon the sum mer stands I would insist upon it. Bees wintered indoors require less stores than1 outdoor colonies ; perhaps a third less. This, I think, ia the chief advantage of indoor wintering, except perhaps where winters are very severe. There are sev eral advantages in the outdoor process,. Probably the majority of professionals, however, winter indoors. Too many people have an idea that, while only the best honey will do to market, anything that the bees will eat is good enough for them. Probably the greatest winter dange...

2 THE ADVOCATE February 25, HOW WE IRRIGATE WITH WATER Tfea Western Kansas Way of Providing Ar tificial Moisture. I'y C. D. Perry, ot Englewood, Kaa , red be fore the twenty-fifth annual meeting of Kant state Board of Agriculture. Some time last spring the honorable Secretary ot the Agricultural Board came to the ranch of the Claremont Land and Irrigation Company, near Englewood, in Clark county, to see 6cm3 irrigating with water. Out in the western part of the State, we occa sionally hear a good deal about irrigat ing certain sections of the eastern part with something besides water. But the moral sentiment of the people of our sactlon, aa well as our financial ability, prevents irrigating with any thing but water, although perhaps the Secretary did not know this when he wrote me in July and asked me to pre pare a paper to be read here to day, telling you how we irrigate with water. An adequate supply of water being the first requisite for successful irriga tion, I will first menti...

THUS ADVOCATE, 8 brain work to get your water supply and then to use so that the best results and profits will follow. Iam here to tell you, also, that if you will only per severe, your skill, your work, your pa tience, will have their ample reward. When I look back oyer the past twenty years, and see the increase of our population and consequent compe tition for all prizes, either in labor or business, I want to say to you, my farmer friends, that your children, twenty years from now, will thank their parents more for their holdings of land than we do our parents, for all history shows that as the population of a country increases, wages and in terest go down but value of land goes up. So beware how you part with or neglect that kind of property that has in all times been, if not always the most remunerative, certainly the most secure. It is better than bonds and mortgages, because you hold your own security. The improvements you put on the land are yours, also, and the best improv...

THE ADVOCATE. 5 DOINGS IN CONGRESS. The failure of Congress to invest! gate the bond sales made by Cleveland and Carlisle is said to be a matter of "honor among thieves," Congressman Dockery has intro duced a bill for the revision of the statutes of ihe United States. The last revision was in 1S73. The gold bog argument in Congress seems to be that the present .financial condition is causing prosperity among the people and that all that is necessary to make prosperity increase is to wait. Senator Peffer introduced a resolu tion February 12 providing for an in vestigation by the Committee on Postoffices and Postroads of alleged assessments made on employes of that department. The military appropriation bills allow officers 4 cents per mile for expenses when traveling on official business or by order of superior officers. This is over and above actual railroad fare and on lonz distances amounts to about $20 a day. Congressman Long managed to in troduce an amendment providing for the c...

0 THE ADVOCATE. February 26, WHO PAYS THE TAXES V THE FARMER'S BALANCE SHEET. BY W. II. T. WAKEFIELD NO. III. The average farm in the eastern half of Kansas consists of 160 acres, the land worth 015 and improvements $10 per acre, or $1,000 in all. Personal property other than improvements will average about 9800, so that the farmers have about the same interest as capi talists as they have as landlords, pro viding there is no incumbrance on the land. This gives total assets of $4,800. Interest at 6 per cent, on $4,800 is $288, which the owner should receive in ad dition to wages of self and family. To properly conduct such a farm re quires the labor of two mei (usually father and son) and one boy and two women, at $1 per day each for the men and 50 cents for the boy and the women, for 300 days in the year. This gives a wages or labor cost of $(J00, which, added to the $288 interest on Investment, gives $1,188, to which must be added taxes of all kinds to get cost to the farmer. By o...

THE ADVOCATE. PINGREE'S POTATO PATCHES How the Unemployed iu Detroit Helped Themselves Through an Opportunity to Till the Soil. A report recently issued by the De troit agricultural committee on the cultivation of idle lands iu the city limits by the poor and unemployed shows some interesting results. This plan of assisting poor people origi nated with Mayor II. S. Tingree, and was first tried in 1894, after much op position and ridicule. Its object was to assist people with families who were in poor circumstances, "by permitting and encouraging them to cultivate idle land lying within or near the city limits gratuitously offered for that pur pose by charitable persons." The committee cites that there are in Detroit a great number of working men with large families who are not able to secure continuous employment and whose wages are not sufficient to support their families, and in conse quence are driven to ask aid fromthe organized charities during the whole or a portion of the win...
