WINTER READING FORFARriERS The farmer's reading season \is now approaching-. The crops are har- vested and, we hope, marketed with profit. The days, are shortening-, the evenings are lengthening. Now is the time to arrange for thoughtful evenings. Now is the time to lay schemes for next year's campaign up- on the fields. What to read is the question. There is no lack of books, no shortage of newspaper and periodical Htera-ture, especially this presidential 'election year. We believe that the farmer, as well as the professional man, should choose mainly such literature as will give him most light upon the |>rob- lems underlying the successful pursuit of his vocation. Of course his read- ing should not stop here, nor indeed begin here; but his literary bill of fare should certainly include some- thing which will tend to fashion prev- iously acquired knowledge and stimu- late him in the pursuit of new facts and new principles.. YVe are g-lad to see that this plan of furnishing the farmer with desir- able reading matter is \being again car- ried out by the College of Agriculture of Cornell university. Ithaca, X Y., un- der the provisions of the Nixon bill for the extension of agricultural knowl- edge. It will be remembered that the college of agriculture of this institu- tion began this work some four years ago and has continued it each winter season since that time with admirable results. The plan is to furnish each farmer with a series of lessons bear- ing upon certain fundamentals of agri- culture; for instance, formation and cultivation of the soil, how the plant grows, and the nutrition of the ani- mal. The lessons deal with principles. They incite thought arid study. They are accompanied by questions which the reader is expected to answer and return to the college. These lessons form excellent material for discussion at grange, institute and club meet- ings. \We hope that many of our readers will take advantage of this opportunity. Applications should be addressed to Farmers' Heading Course, College of Agriculture, Cornell univer- sity, Ithaca, X. V. CHINA DISCOVERS THIS CONTI- NENT. We have been ready to admit that John Chinaman was the original print- er, the original paper-maker, the or- iginal astronomer and the original civ- il service reformer. But when he springs lig-htly in to view as the orig- inal discoverer of this continent we are ready to confess our astonishment. We cannot doubt his word, for he has preserved the records in his \sacred city\ of Peking for the past 15 cen- turies; and it appears from them that in 449 A. D., some Chinese mission- aries sailed until they landed in Mex- ico, opposite the Peninsula of Yuca- tan. Now is explained a long-buried secret of the superiority of the Aztecs to other natives of tins western world. They absorbed the Chinese knowledge of architecture, which they subse- quently utilized by erecting temples to the Ood of Confucius. When Co- lumbus came, a thousand years later, he found the remains of his pioneer's foundation of this land, but, with his narrow Catholic prejudices, he pre- ferred to believe that these temples were erected to the Unknown Ood rather than to Confucius. This story of discovery ought to set &t rest the Norseman legend, which -dates back to about the year 995. It makes Ferdinand and Isabella back- numbers while they lived, and robs poor Christopher Columbus of the chief glory of his discoveries. Yet stay! Columbus was a brave naviga- tor who sailed through unknown seas until he came to a strange land, which lie believed to be part of the Indies. Here he trod the soil, and then, re- turning to Spain, laid this continent as tribute a t the feet of Queen Isabella. So, after all, John Chinaman is power- less to detract from the glory that un- folds the name of the world-seeking Genoese. Columbus, the Cabots and Americus Verpuecio were, if not the original discoverers of this continent, the first to make is known to Western JCurope; The musty recoi-ds of what was done by some Chinese mission- aries in 449 may be accepted as true without diminishing the debt of grat- itude we all owe, not to John Chinar man, but to the first man who sailed from Europe to America, and so op- ened up to us a new world. THE BEST OPENING. You are a young man who has spent all your life up to this time upon the farm, and you are now nearly 20 years old and are doing a good deal of hard thinking about your future. You have a notion that there is something better for you in the old world than the growing of crops and the milking of cows ami would like to see something of the ways of the world as it i s off the farm. Lots just like you, my boy, and they go from the farm by the thousands year by year, and some be- come little one horse attorneys and parsons and some book agents and medicine peddlers and some $G a week jumping jacks in dry goods stores and some worthless town loafers and some wandering, homeless tramps. Many make a good fight for place and posi- tion, only to he swamped in midlife by the merciless power of modern competition in all lines of business, and the. few, the very few, by virtue of opportunity, pluck and pull, climl high on fortune's ladder and are held up to an admiring world as illustrations of what the country boy can do when he leaves the farm. Now, listen, my boy. The time is coniinp- and is pret- ty nearly here now when the man who owns a piece of land and knows how- to work it in an intelligent manner is going to have the whip row over all the peddlers, parsons, doctors, law yers, clerks and genteel loafers in the land. Laud ownership is the concrete foundation of European aristocracy and all that is best in foreign civiliza- tion. Science is smiling most kindly on agriculture. Unlimited possibili- ties await the man' who has studied na- ture's textbooks. The best intellect, ual development is uniting with the hand hardened and browned by farm work. All that is best in man may now be evolved under rural conditions. Invention has greatly modified the drudgery of farm toil without in any degree impairing agricultural indepen- dence. Suppose, my boy, you now de- cide to be a. first-class modern farm- er, a man well posted on the technical as well as the practical side of youi business, a raiser of the- best crops, a breeder of the best stock, an up-to- date man in your profession, which you can easily do if you will apply yourself to the doing of it with the same persistency and diligence which you would have to devote to any out- side profession if you would make a success of it. It is absolutely true that agriculture so undertaken offers today a far more certain reward in both a financial and man developing way than any other vocation open to the young man. been in progress. 31 months, or within three months of two years. Today .it, is no nearer ended than it was 30 months ago, yet during all of the time in which it has been in progress Will- iam MelCinley has been president, and he has had a Republican eougress with him. Why has the Philippine ''insur- rection\ not ended long- before this if the end is assured by having- MeKin- ley president and congress Republic- an? Gen. McArthur's latest report, pub- lished in last week's newspapers, does not bear out the Spokesman-Review's prophecy. The \insurrection\ in the Philippines was not based upon the success on- failure of any political pain- ty in the United States; it was based on the truth that all men are created equal, upon the truth that all govern- ments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed and that there shall not in justice be taxation without representation. A people who will fight for nearly two years against overwhelming odds for what they firm- ly believe to be just and right are not likely to give up merely because the power which opposes' them has been given a new leave of life. The Filip- inos may, and doubtless will, be sub- dued, but a people who love liberty well enoug-h to fig-ht for it can never be conquered. They may be whipped into submission, but if they are con- quered they will have established a new precedent among- people who cher- ish liberty as the heritage of all men everywhere.—Omaha World-Herald. PAN-AMERICAN ABROAD. Everybody in Buffalo, to say noth- ing of the rest of the state, is looking forward to the Pan-American exposi- tion of the coming year, ' The Bisons are now busy trying to interest Euro- peans in the exposition. W. Caryl Ely, one of the managers, is making a short European trip, one of whose objects is to advertise the Pan-Amer- ican. A letter from Mr. Fly, written at Paris, says: \The time has come when America offers even more to interest the Euro- pean traveler than \Europe offers to a citizen of the United States. Thet- is no reason why the wealthy classes here shouldn't flock across the ocean every summer as is fashionable with us. •'American commerce.which has been invading Europe so rapidly in the last two years, would take possession ot European fields even more invincibly if the people here were acquainted with our country.\ Mr. Ely hopes to get the tide of Eu- ropean travel started toward America in time for the Pan-American to profit thereby; and once started, he relies upon the attractiveness of America as a place of visit, or to reside in, t o do the rest. HAY HARKET REVIEW. ENDING THE INSURRECTION.

November 13. 11 is- now 40 years -since [ first saw and heard Abraham Lincoln, but the impression which he left on my mind is iuefl'aen.ble.. After his great- suc- cesses in the west he came to New York to make a political address. He appeared in. every sense of the word like one of the plain people among whom he loved to be counted, At first sight, there was nothing impress- ive or imposing about him, except Dhat his great, stature singled him out from the crowd; his clothes hung' awkward- ly on his giant frame, his face was of a da.rk pallor, without the. slightest tinge of color; his seamed and rug-ged features bore the furrows of hardship and struggle; his deep set eyes looked sad and anxious; his countenance in repose gave little evidence of that brain power which had raised him from the lowest to the highest station among his countrymen; as he talked to me before the nieteing- he seemed ill at ease, with that sort of apprehen- sion -which a young man might feel before presenting- himself to a new and strange audience, whose critical disposition he dreaded. It was a great audience, including all the noted men —all the learned and cultured—of his party in New York; editors, clergy- men, statesmen, lawyers, merchants, critics. They were all very curious to hear him. His fame as a powerful speaker had preceded him, and exag- gerated rumor of his wit—the worst, forerunner of an orator—had reached the east. While Mr. \Bryant presented him, on the high platform of the Cooper Insti- tute, a vast sea of eager upturned faces greeted him, full of intense cur- iosity to see what, this rude child of the people was like. He was equal to the occasion. When he spoke he was transformed; his eye kindled, his voice rang, his face shone and seemed to light up the whole assembly. For an hour and a half he held this audience in the hollow of his hand. His style of speech and manner of delivery were severely simple. What Lowell called \the grand simplicities of the Bible,\ with which he was so familiar, were reflected in his discourse. With no atfenupt at ornament or rhetoric, with- out parade or pretence, he spoke straight to the point. If any came ex- pecting- the turgid eloquence or the ribaldry of the frontier, they must have been startled at the earnest and sincere purity of his utterances. ft was marvelous to see how this untu- tored man, by mere self-discipline and the chastening of his own spirit, had outgrown all meretricious arts and found his own way t o the grandeur and strength of absolute simplicity. He spoke upon the theme which he had mastered so thoroughly. He de- monstrated by copious * historical proofs and masterly logic that the fathers who created the constitution, in order to form a more perfect union, to establish justice and to secure the blessings of liberty to themselves and their posterity, intended to empower the federal government to exclude slavery from the territories. In the kindliest spirit he protested against the avowed threat of the Southern states to destroy the union if, in order to secure freedom in those vast re- gions out of which future states were to be carved, a Republican president were elected. He closed with, all the fire of his aroused and kindly con- science, with a full outpouring of his love of justice and liberty, to main- tain their political purpose on that lofty and unassailable issue of right and wrong, which alone could justify it and not- to be intimidated front their high resolve and sacred duty by any threats of destruction to the gov- ernment or of ruin to themselves. He concluded with this telling sentence, which drove the whole argument home to all our hearts: \Let us have faith that rig-ht makes might, and in that faith let us tq the end dare to do- our duty as we understand it.\ That night the g-reat hall, and the next day the whole city, rang with delighted ap- plause and eong-ratulations, and' he who had come as a stranger departed with the laurels of a great, triumph. Produce Exchange Proceeding's. The regular meeting of the Water- town Produce Exchange, was called to order at 2:30 Saturday afternoon by President R. P. Grant. The minutes of the previous meting were, read and approved. The secretary then read a communication from Sec. W. W. Hall, of the N. Y. S. D-. A.

The preliminary examination of Fos- ter Murphy, accused of rape in the first degree, committed upon his 12- year-old niece, Lea Curtis, was held before Justice Clarence Beebee at Manns-viHe Thursday afternoon. Dis- trict Attorney George H. Cobb ap- peared for the people and Attorney A. A. \Wheeler of Mannsville, for the de- fendant. Little Lena Curtis, so weak from the brutal assault upon her that she had to be carried into court, told a clear story of Murphy's crime, and her story was circumstantially cor- roborated by other witnesses. At the close of the examination Murphy was recomitted to the county jail to await the action of the grand jury. If tne Baby is Cutting: Teeth.

Factorymen Letting: go of Their Septem- bers and Octobers. After several weeks o f light trans- actions in cheese business begins to increase in volume o n the local mar- ket, the sales on the Watertown Pro- duce Exchange Saturday being the •largest o f any salesday for many, weeks. The majority of the factories In Jefferso n county hav e closed fo r the season, and nearly all those yet i n op - eration are making butter. Practical-, ly, therefore, the manufacturing sea - son is over. Several salesmen, closed out the balance of their fall make Sat - urday, believing that prices would not advance euoti,g-h for the balance of the season to offset the shrinkage and ex - pense of holding the cheese. Others- were unwilling to close out at the - prices offered and held over, believin g that the imxn' ove d tone o f the general market made it safer to carry the cheese. Neither buyers o r salesmen regard with seriousness the stereotyped re- ports that emanate from New York at this season o f the year and which crit- icise the October make as \pasty and of fruity fla.vor. Not only is the Oc - tober make this seaso n fully equal to the September cheese, but many of the factorymen say the Octobers are actually superior to the former month's make on account of the extra- ordinary .fine weather and pasturage prevailing throughout October. The demand from home trade buy- ers showed a marked improvement on Saturday's Exchange, though price s are i n about the same range as last week . Ten cents was the prevailing bid on large cheese a t the opening and a considerable quantity went at that price. An additional eighth was put on one lot. At. the close a bunch of over 1,000 boxes of River cheese was taken by a home trade buyer for the Philadelphia market a t 10% cents, sub- ject to inspection at the factories. Two lots, part large and part small singles, were close d out at 10% cents for the whole- , about 275 of the 9U0 boxes in the two lot s being, large cheese. Averaging the large cheese in these lots at 60 pounds and the smal l at 43 pounds would make the deal bring 10% cents fo r the large an d nearly 10% cents fo r the small. The cheese were September and October , make. The day's transactions,including Hie River cheese, bought subject to inspec - tion will aggregate about 6,000 boxes, the bulk o f the large cheese going at JOi/i cents and the bulk o f the small at 10% cents. The cheese sold will bring the farmers over $30,000, not a bad day's work. The Sales. At the 5:3 0 official closing the sales reported were: LARGE CHEESE. Lots.
