What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Falling Gold Valves. Many people are disturbed over high prices, and with good ...cause. for they add immensely -. to the cares and privations of the homes of the poor, and of those whose inoonies permitted them, a few years ago, to count upon a reason- able saving above expenses, but who are compelled now to absorb about all their earnings. They cannot understand why such a -change two came. One reason is that, all their lives, gold has been of unchanging value in their minds, when the truth is gold fluctuates in value just like other commodi- ties, though in less degree,because It certain weight of it is accepted at a certain valuation by all the nations of the earth. And it has that valuation in name, and in the settlements bete een nations and individuals becalms the statutes of most powers declare jts value and they all agree in recognizing it. But really it varies in value as much as do potatoes or better or eggs. if potatoes acre worth 40 cents per bushel last year, and there is this year but half a crop, then we discover that so far as potatoes are concerned, gold has fallen fifty per cent in value. The only exeotion to this rule is that many people can substitute other food for the potatoes, a hereas no substitute can be used in lieu of gold. On the other hand if. sud- denly, one-half the gold of a coun- try is removed,then when nien try with any form of property to buy a certain amount of gold, they find it requires twice as much of any form of property to buy the gold. as it did_ prior to the removal. Aii — siaa — whei made the distress between 1873 and 1896. In 1873 the nation, states, corporations and citizens owed - quite 5,000 millions of dollars in interest -bear- ing debts. When silver was de- monetized, by the same law the real money was half destroyed and the principal and interest of the debts were made payable in gold. Of course, gold measured in any product of the earth or by the aoil,doubled in value,or in reverse, till the products of the earth shrunk one-half in value. With one-half the value of their property de- stroyed, _their debts were in the same moment doubled. No won der the distress was fearful and long continued. Well,the reverse fngThiist fourteen years. The gold in circulation has more than doubled, with the result that when measured by ordinary property the property has don . bled. In this ciey realty has doubled twice since fourteen years ago. It has doubled on 2e becatese the gold in circulation has doubled, and once because it has dawned upon the people that this spot is the right site for it great city. Then other changes have come be- cause of the increased gold and this bin symptom everywhere all over the republic. We mean in- creased extravagance among the people I How many great lawyers would be content with such officea as Abraham Lincoln occupied in Spingfield, or Bgn Butler occupied in Boston? Why are men and women who do not care for speed on the street daily giving up their earrinwes and taking to automo- biles? Why are office buildings changing daily from sand stone and oak to marble and mahogany? We cite Liewok i lkinetek‘kojena that a very considerable -airicznev in food, furniture and many other products which all men have to purchase has been inevitable be- cause gold has lost so much of its purchasing power. Doubtless there is much in the eorking of trusts and in the manipulation of middle- men, but had there never been either, still there would have been a most sensible advance in the price of products; measured in terms of gold. It is seen every- where, from the interest that bankers charge to prices demanded for butter and eggs. Both show rapidly gold is losing its value. All ready the men who deal in money almost exclusively, seeing the inevitable, are beginning to move to have the coinage of gold placed under limitations, for with gold coinage continually increas- ing. _ it will draw less and less in- terest, and the falling off in inter- est, is what breaks the banker's heart. —Goodwin'e Weekly. Developing Farm Animals Young. The importance of developing all types of farm animals at an early ago is not fully. realized by all. As we travel over the state and see yearling colts that weigh but five or six hundred pounds, yearling steers or heifer, weigh- ing but 500 pounds, or lambs that never pass the 60 or 70 pound , mark, we cannot help but realize that there is a great loss in hand• ling our livestock in that manner. Farmers that are following this practice fail to see that they are raising their stock up to inferior animals of low value at a large expense. It is always a sure sign of pro- gression when we see well shaped young animitls making rapid pro- gress in life. To the livestock lover there is much of companion- ship with the young and growing colts, calves,' pigs, and lambs. when one is with them and caring for them as they grow up. The first \and most important thing to be retnembered in devel- oping animals young is to provide the young things with plenty of flesh and bone producing food. In a region where but little corn ;s produced the calves can be made to grow rapidly by feeding a little bran and alfalfa hay in connection with the milk. The calves will begin to eat bran after they are about two weeks old and each dny thereafter the amount should be increased until they are eating all that they can consume. They will also begin eating hay .when they are about three or four weeks old and after a short time they will eat very large _quantities. Perhaps this ration will appear a little ex- pensive. but when we realize the mice at which young animals are selling we can readily see the val- ue of concentrated foods. If young animals are fed all they will eat from the time that they are born they will be ready for the market by the time they are eighteen months old and will command more money than many of our three and four year old steers. With the ewes that have been lbred to drop lambs in the spring the oats and bran ration, fed in moderate quntklea, has produced good results. After a very short time, to this ration can be added alfalfa or clover bay, and pasture in the summer and by fell you will have lambs that will eeigh better then 150 pounds or lambs thut will top the market, • The writer hits produced lambs i9. th manner that at a iittie over five months of age weighed over 150 pounds each. If exellera feed and care had not been given they Would not have weighed 100 poursds, or perhaps even less, Ex perienee shows dna middlings and milk make excellent feed for little pigs while they are yet with the sow. Scald the middlings.mix in the milk and feed in modetate quantities while warm, about three times per day. This e ill broducc excellent results. After pigs have missed six weeks of age some coarse feed can be inixed in, as bald barley or outs. Grind the barley and oats together or feed the ground barley alone tith the middlings and you have a very good ration for developing pigs. The mixture should be either soak- ed for twelve hours before mixing with Aim milk, or scalded im- mediately before feeding, In either Case if the materiel la fed %Nem it will produce it rapid and healthy growth. By attending to the pigs closely and using good Judgment in se- lecting breeding stock it will not be didicult to make the Pigs gain a pound a day each up to ninety days, or three months of age. The pigs bhould not miss a single meal. In the development of young animate a few important facts might be well worth remembering. Among them are: First, the young stock grow bone. muscle and vital organs while passing through the growing period, and cannot increase the size of the saute afterwards. Also that in order to make rapid grim th nitro- genous feeds must be given, for it is trout them that they can make bone, .muscle and vital organs, and cannot make them from carbon- aceouS feeds. They can make some fat - MAI nitrogenous feeds. Sgeond. the growth and the in- crease in weight can be made cheaper during the early part of the animal's life than it can be later. Third, the best quality of meat is made from animals that are kept gaining continuously from birth to the time that they go to market. There is a great profit in feeding young and in reaching market weights early in the animarei life. Fourth, that alfalfa is an excel- lent feed to ripen and fatten stock for market. It, however, gives better results when fed in combi- nation with other feeds. -It can be used to advantage in connection with cloverovheat,bran,middlings, oats and several kinds of roots. Fifth, the man who develops his stock young is in the lead in regard to quality of stock to sell or to keep, and can reap greater profits on any kind that he raises than the man who treats his animals indifferently e htiI s young, and trusts to -his ability to fatten them for market later in life—North- western Stoclimin :Ind Farmer.
