I special correspondence of the Monitor. J Washington d. C.,apr. 20, 91. Senator Sherman is in town and Many Are the ruses that have been tried for the purpose of getting an author Tive statement from him As to his future political intention but no one has yet succeeded in drawing him out. A gentleman close to him personally and political and who prob ably knows if anybody does said to eral Hundred thousand Gallons of syr up have been delivered under con tracts made last Winter by agents of City houses at from 50 to co cents per gallon. But these Are exceptionally Low figures. Of the 10,000,000 pounds of sugar which it is estimated was produced this season it is estimated that fully three quarters or 7,500,000 pounds was of a Quality to have tested above 80 degrees by the Polar scope and thus to have entitled the producers to receive the government Bounty. The total amount of bounties on the above basis would approximate $150,-00 0. The regulations and forms prepared by the commissioner of internal Revenue relative to the Bounty on sugar have just been issued. The regulations provide that All producers of sugar who intend to apply for the Bounty on sugar produced be tween july 1, 1801, and july 1, 1892, in order to entitle themselves thereto Taulen Gravess tax Ciu l a i in Loi t our neet Cut Genera Lile Liis Irani Al Barton t Ioma ii a.

The United states in parting with the Revenue derived from sugar which for a decade has averaged Over 50,-000,0 has taken one of the Steps which Are at once the admiration and despair of Europe. No european state could endure the loss of reve nue. No one of them having begun the customs Protection of its sugar industries would have the courage to abandon it and substitute Protection for Bounty in order to give its peo ple the Benefit of cheap sugar and its industries the Benefit involved in the development of sugar production. The United states has done All three. It has parted with a Revenue from this single source larger than its entire Revenue receipts forty years ago. It has Given its people cheap sugar. By bounties it proposes to stimulate sugar production. It is High time. No better measure exists of the average Well being and Prosperity of the great mass of a people than a steady increase in the consumption of sugar and other Staples. In the per capita consumption of All other great Staples wheat Corn meat Iron Cotton and Wool the United states leads the world. It does not in sugar. The per capita con sumption of sugar in great Britain in 1883 was seventy pounds annually the Gross increase was greater Here than in great Britain. Sugar con sumption advanced there from 1,0g8,-82 4 tons in 1883 to 1,231,828 tons in 1889, an Advance of 103,004 tons or fifteen per cent. In this country the Advance was from 1,1g4,92g tons in 1883 to 1,442,908 tons in 1889, or 357,079 tons an increase of thirty per cent. But while our increase in Gross consumption was twice As great As in England the growth of popu lation was so rapid that a per capita annual consumption of 48.2 pounds in 1883 Rose Only to 50.3 pounds in 1889. In the interval the consumption averaged 51 pounds. Last year 1890, it was 51 pounds but in the past seven years in which the world s production of sugar has advanced from 4,700,000 tons to 5,200,000 tons and the per capita consumption of every european country has risen the United states has increased its general without advancing its individual consumption. A fact like this in a year of great Prosperity is Plain proof that the United states has not shared an in crease general to All the rest of the world. Such a Check in consumption is the clearest demonstration of the evil worked by this duty. Protective tariffs have not had this effect. Our consumption of pig Iron doubled in the last eight years or grew twice As fast As population. This has been equally True of silk Cotton and Wool raw and manufactured. Protective duties in these cases did not Advance Price and hence did not restrict con sumption. The Revenue Tariff on sugar directly added to Price and did restrict consumption. This heavy tax on a prime necessity of food has now been removed. Raw sugar for the first time in our history is free. We look to see its consumption increase by leaps and Bounds. It ought judging from English experience to double in the next decade perhaps in the next five a j i n lit years. Livery Camuy win Seei the change. The Cost of living is Sensi Bly lessened. It is rank nonsense to say that the refiner will absorb the reduction. The narrow margin of three eights of a cent a Pound left for the refiner is heavily reduced by the bounties on French and German cigars. Under these bounties Ger Many doubled her product from 1879 to 1889, and to a y exports More sugar than Cuba and Sells it More cheaply in the Market of the world. Cheap sugar is a certainty under the Mckinley Tariff. It is the Only Mckinley Price which has come to stay. On a year s expenditure in a Day labourer s family of five the reduction is equal to a week s wages. Guaranteed cure Fob la grape. We author ize our advertised druggist to sell or.

This movement plainly meets a Public want and has spread across the continent. The objects of these associations vary with local needs and possibilities including Public health especially sanitary conditions in Homes and their surroundings sidewalks roads roadsides school and Church Yards cemeteries Parks and other Public lands As Well As private estates the grounds around railway stations pro Viding drinking troughs or fountains lighting and parking streets removing nuisances and front fences Plant ing Trees organizing free town Libra Ries and whatever else the exigencies of each place May suggest for its growth and betterment.

A cuts must have Metal body. England is a great nation but in surface extent she is Only about the size of our state Iowa. The differ ence in area Between the two is but 22 Square Miles. There were nearly twice the num ber of deaths in new York City last week that there were births. This proportion could uni be Lorg main j trained without new York s losing her proud position at the head of Ameri can cities. Of course pneumonia and grip were responsible for the unusual mortality. Boston suffered a fire apr. 11which although not very extensive proved most disastrous to the fire department. 3iore than a dozen firemen including chief Engineer Webber were seriously injured by a falling building and it is doubtful if All recover. The property loss was Al amt 825,000. The president s trip through the South has been one Long ovation. Cannons have boomed crowds have cheered bands have played flags have waved and Little girls innumerable have presented mrs. Harrison with Flowers. Surely the War is Over. The president visited Atlanta the scene of an engagement in which he bore a part some Twenty seve n years ago. The enthusiasm with which he has been received is a Happy Omen of the country s future. It is humiliating to reflect that the prime cause of pauperism and crime in this country is drunkenness that this is known and admitted by All intelligent citizens and yet legislators courts the press and people Are apparently hike warm or indifferent to this cause. The politician stands in Awe before the Saloon Power and too often slavishly obeys its mandates the people Are silent Pas Sive or asleep when no agent is More Active for mischief than the Demon of drink. Society bears an immense financial Burden from the results of this diabolical practice still the mar Vel of marvels is Only a few Brave souls have the courage to stand up to their convictions of duty. Another important Extension of civil service examination rules was made recently. It will take in the entire Indian school service with the exception of Agency physicians and will include Coo or 700 persons. It had been intended to make the Exten Sion apply to a still larger number but As Many exceptions must necessarily have been made it was thought better to wait until the Extension could be Complete. The pres ident has also agreed that a clause of the civil service rules permitting promotions into the classified service without competitive examination after two years connection with a department be revoked. The administration is entitled to Hearty congratulation on its intelligent efforts in this direction. Vermont s sugar crop for 1891. Forbes of the Boston journal says the Maple sugar season of 1801 has practically closed. It be Gan the second week in March the first Good run of sap occurring on the 10th of that month. The season has been favourable for a Large crop of sugar and the yield of Many Maple Orchards has been considerable above the average of the past few years. In some sections of the state the Farmers report that they have made four pounds and in some in stances five pounds to a tree. The manufacture of sugar this year has been somewhat stimulated by the prospective payment in 1892, and for 14 years thereafter of a Bounty by the government to the producers. There has been an appreciable in crease this year in the number of sugar works operated and the num ber of Trees tapped this season is much larger than in any previous year. From a careful estimate made by the journal correspondent it appears that fully 8500 sugar places have been carried on this season. More syrup has been this year than Ever before there being a con stantly growing demand for syrup in the american Market. It is Estima Ted that fully 17,000,000 pounds of sugar and syrup has been made of which it is probable fully 40 per cent was syrup. The amount of cake and tub sugar produced is placed at 10,-000,0 00 pounds. The Quality of both the syrup and sugar made is better than in any former season which re sult is largely due to the use of new and improved utensils and apparatus. The Market value of the crop of 1801 j will doubtless exceed 1,200,000. In the Early part of the season Good cake sugar brought the producers from 10 to 12 cents per Pound and syrup sold for is per gallon. Far mers now realize from c to 8 cents per Pound for sugar and from co to 75 cents per gallon for syrup. Sev Ries were All shut Down Stone and teams were furnished free and own ers and operatives joined with the citizens in a big Bee where Many hands made Light work and All had a Good time. From that Day they have thought More of one another More of their town and Best of All More of their Homes which richly shared in these improvements As did the sidewalks roadsides cemeteries and other Public grounds. This Hearty on of All classes promoted Good Fellowship and made the hum Blest Workman proud of the achieve ments of that memorable Day. Kin dred examples ought to be multiplied for such a Bee helps to counteract the tendency of Rural life to isolation and separation by classes and lifts out of the ruts of a plodding Monotony. After a Day of United work a collation served by the ladies whose on is always Hearty and efficient in Village improvements pro motes Good cheer and Fosters social amenities. The Escutcheon of the Swiss confederacy one for All and All for one suggests the True motto for every Village improvement association. The Home should always be the objective Point. It has Long been my desire to help in bettering the Homes and Home Lif e of the Amer ican people for the privilege and duty of life is the creation of tasteful Happy Christian Homes. When such is one s Ideal and his Home becomes his Pride life has higher significance value and Sac redness the Homes of any people Tell their state and traits. The Indian s wig Wam shows How Little he cares for the Rich acres around it or the Rich mines that May lie beneath it. Christianity has Ever marked its triumphs Over paganism by improving the Homes of its converts. I he multiplied minis tries of nature Providence and Relig Ion Center in the maintenance of Happy Homes. The Hope of America is the Homes of the results of Village improvement already observed in this direction am ply compensate for the Cost and work involved and invite More general efforts to extend this Beneficent Agency. One Good example often makes Many others. Their manifold results in so Many states give a Culm native Force to this movement warranting the Hope that instead of hundreds there will be thousands of these societies for bettering Homes As Well As towns. Few communities can afford to continue without some organized efforts for Public improvements for they pay in Many ways. They help to retain in town its wealthy and Public spirited citizens and attract Desir Able residents from abroad. A penurious policy is Penny wis e and Pound fools h. It defeats its own aim of saving and results in deterioration and loss. Men of culture shun a narrow Minde d Community. A Good name tends to enrich a town As Well As an individual while a bad repute May impoverish both. A Village improvement society of ten start3 with specific plans and does its work in regard to local needs and then disbands. This is not a fall from Grace for its results continue for generations As ideals and object lesson s to old and Young. The Active interest of an entire Community is not easily held to any single work however valuable nor is it necessary if the right sentiment and inspiration have become general for when this movement is individualized it goes of itself and the Well Bein g of each is seen to depend on the Well doing of All. But Many of these associations Are permanent in their life and work. The patriotic sentiment which cherishes one s town is Noble and Enno bling. The Man who cares not for his native town nor that of his adoption has no heart in his bosom. An example is found in an american railway King a millionaire taking no interest either in his adopted or his native town leaving his old Home Stead neglected and forlorn. Such a fact suggests a selfish soul sterile in All heroic Virtues. B. G. Northrop Clinton Conn.

It is said that at the Centennial at new York there was nothing that elicited so much applause As these cadets. They Are perfection itself in every Point of military evolution. The state is under Many obligations to Secretary Proctor for adding this attraction to the Bennington Centennial. Me or.

But you May be certain that when the proper time comes the peo ple of Ohio will be told whether he wishes to be de to the sen ate John Sherman never travels under false pretences and never Hesi tates to ask in a Manly and and open manner for the political support of his constituents when he desires it is the opinion of All the prominent republicans with whom i have talked among them several Ohio men that or. Sherman will be a candidate for the to the Senate and that also is my own impression. The Success of our special envoy sex minis Foster in negotiating with Spain a reciprocity treaty be tween Cuba and the United states along the lines of the Mckinley Tariff act give9 great satisfaction in Olli Cial circles and most effectually disposes of All the democratic fairy tales about there being a hitch on account of the Demaud of Spain that we should place cuban tobacco on the free list. The Spanish government was very anxious that we should admit Cuba s to Bacco free of duty but it was far too sensible to demand it and when in formed that it was impossible there was no More said about it. The subject of counterfeiting United states currency is assuming grave proportions and the of Licals of the Treasury department Are just at pres ent giving considerable time to study ing it in the Hope of discovering a remedy or preventive. The chief engraver of the Bureau of engraving and printing who is away up As an expert spent an hour in examining two 82 Silver certificates one genuine and the other counterfeit with a pow Erful magnifying Glass Aud his dict was that there was not the slightest difference Between the two notes. New inventions in photo Mechanic Al processes have made it easy and Cleau for the counterfeiters to re produce on a Metal plate every Hue of a note and after a Little etching it is an exact duplicate of the steel plate from which the note was origin ally printed and which it had taken months to engrave. The color in the red seals Aud the greenbacks was once a Protection but late discoveries in photo Chromoy makes it easy to reproduce the pre Cise shades. The chief of the secret service in his last annual report says on this subject the genuine government notes now especially the series of 1890, Are marvels of the engraving Art aided by the wonderful Geometric lathe. One would think it impossible to successfully counter Feit such work upon looking Over the Complex area of lines and patterns and yet at this moment counterfeiters Are reproducing it so perfectly that the elaborate Beauty of this paper Money May be said to offer no Protection to the Public or defense against the Only Way the expert has of detecting this skilfully executed counterfeit is by the paper and that has been so Well imitated that no one but an expert can Tell it from the Genu Ine. So that really about the Only Protection the Public has against counterfeiting is the vigilance of the Treasury secret service. Representative Springer of Illinois is now Jock Early referred to As the talking candidate for speaker of the House because of the number of his recent newspaper interviews. In his last after painting his own prospects a deep Roseate Hue which by the Way is not visible to any one else he sails into new York politics nominates for governor and elects representative Roswell p. Fowler whose barrel has so often been on tap to the boys of the democratic machine and makes him the demo cratic presidential nominee just As if those other two gentlemen Cleveland and Hill were not in existence. Really this speaker ship business is getting decidedly interesting and each of the would a e democratic presidential candidates will soon have a candidate for speaker. Or.

Some months since several parties left Sutton for North Carolina where they went for the purpose of engaging in the lumber business. The Fol lowing letter from or. Eastman one of the parties will be of interest we Are located at West end on the Aberdeen and West end la. R., about 70 Miles from Raleigh. This Branch of the Railroad is built thro Twenty five e Miles of splendid timbered land where grows the Long Leafe d yellow Pine. The Timber is Large tall and of excellent Quality for Many purposes. Along the line of the new r. Thrifty villages have sprung up which Are centers of Trade for the surrounding vicinities. Some of the people farm for a living others work in the Mills and Many Are engaged in Lye turpentine business. The Ope ration of gathering the turpentine produced commences about the mid dle of March and lasts till october. The first operation is known As Box ing " the cutting of a cup like cavity near the roots of the tree into which the turpentine gum is conducted from two slits Cut through the bark of the tree v shaped which conduct the oozing matter into the cup below. These slits Cut into the Timber a half Inch or More Are recut and lengthened from time to time during the sea son. The tree is worked about six years. The drippings As the turpentine product is called Are taken from the Box about once a week. The stilling is done by putting the tip entire As it is gathered into a Large tank and water i3 added at intervals As a fire is kept under it and the steam passes off through a pipe at the top of the tank. About sixty feet of the pipe is coiled in a tub of water and the Vapours from the tank Are condensed into water and Turpen Tine which run off into a tub the turpentine being dipped off the water. After the spirits Are steamed off the remainder is Rosin which is dip Ped into barrels. The turpentine business is profitable but it requires experience to run it. One Man near me has 2,000 acres of land the whole used As a turpentine he employs a Large number of hands and makes yearly about 700 barrels of turpentine and 2,400 barrels of Rosin. The turpentine Sells for about 20 a barrel the Rosin for 81.25. Labourers in the turpentine business get from fifteen to eighteen dollars a month boarding themselves. The amount of turpentine products ship Ped from this r. Is immense. The Timber after it has been killed by turpentine tapping is sawn into Lum ber and is All the better for having had the Rosin drawn off from it. It is needless to say that labor is done Here almost entirely by the Blacks and so cheap is their labor that the northerner unless he comes Here to run a business of his own will not find a paying Job. The soil is Light and Sandy and i hardly see what the people Here can resort to when the Timber is gone except it May prove that fruit growing shall support them. In another letter i May speak of the lumber business and How it is done. W. B. Eastman. Mothers there arc upon the skin of every human being child and adult alike.2,300,000 pores. Through these pores in the form of insensible perspiration is expelled More than one quart of the nourishment taken into the system. The of keeping open these perspiration valves upon a child s body is second Only to that of properly digesting the food eaten. It was to open the pores of tha skin and to assimilate the food that or. Pitcher formulated Castoria. Loose bowels constipation fever and eruptions which Are so constant among infants and children and which kill one third of All children before they Are five years old arise principally from these two causes. It is from the won Derf results attendant upon the use of Castoria in regulating the stomach and bowels and keeping open the pores of the skin that Castoria acquired its world wid e reputation. With plenty of water for the body pure air for the lungs and Castoria to assimilate the food there need be no unaccounted for sickness among children.
