EFFECT OF RECIPROCITY AGREE
MENT WITH CANADA.
Provides Better Market for His Pro
ductions and Cheapens Price of
Many Things That He Has
The American farmer may be a little
bewildered at this moment. He is be
ing assured on one hand that the re
ciprocity agreement with Canada will
ruin him. Other men, among them
such old and stanch friends as Secre
tary Wilson, are assuring him that not
only can it do him no harm but that it
will be of service to him In that It will
give him a better market for some of
the things he produces and cheapen
the price of some he has to buy. For
tunately, the farmer Is In a position to
consider the question dispassionately.
He has been doing remarkably well for
several years. He Is not worrying
where the money is to come from to
pay the interest on his mortgage. He
has paid it off and has money in bank.
it should be an easy matter to con
vince the average American wheat
grower that the free admission of
Canadian wheat canhot injure and may
benefit him. The price of wheat for the
world is fixed at Liverpool. The price
would not be affected by the free ad
mission of Canadian grain. There
would simply bo a more extensive In
terchange of wheat. American millers
would buy more Canadian hard wheat
for mixing purposes, and Canadian
millers would buy more American soft
wheat. I>ast year Canada took a mil
lion dollars' worth of wheat of the Uni
ted States. But for the Canadian duty,
which it is proposed to repeal, more
would have been taken.
The reciprocal removal of duties
would make a broader and steadier
market for both countries. There
would be no more attempts to run a
wheat corner In Chicago. The most
daring speculator would regard it as
too desperate an undertaking when he
had the Canadian supply to reckon
with. While the price of wheat would
be steadied the value of farm lands
would not be affected. —Chicago Trib
Whatever happens—extra session or
no extra session of congress—this is
going to be a tariff year in these Uni
ted States of America.
If the pact with Canada fails at this
session and an extra session is called
to consider It, that will mean at least
a protracted and spirited controversy.
In a way, that instrument has Increased
interest in the whole tariff question. It
has quickened the national pulse. Both
Democrats and Republicans are seeing
things a little more broadly and inti
mately than ever before. Here Is re
ciprocity in a form that he who runs
may read. The proposition Is definite
and easily understood. If we want a
larger market right at our door, hero is
the chance to acquire it.
If the pact fails at this session, and
the matter goes over until next winter,
it will still be a lively subject of dis
cussion in the press and on the stump
meanwhile. Governor Foss of Massa
chusetts in particular should welcome
It. He claimed his election to congress
a year ago and his election to the gov
ernorship in November on the score of
his advocacy of reciprocity with Cana
da; and next November Massachusetts
holds another state election.

house of representatives Guam may
have important possibilities as a pro

were ready for this reciprocal relation
with Canada, and his brief trip

CAMERON COUNTY PRESS, THURSDAY, MARCH 23, 1911.
MARKET FOR AMERICAN GOODS
Up to Manufacturers to Adapt Them
selves to the Desires of Their
The reports of our consuls abroad
with singular unanimity advise our ex
porters to pay particular attention to
the adaptation of our methods of sale,
of preparation of materials and of
packing them to suit the habits and
customs of the foreign merchants and
meet the demands of their customers.
For years It has been found that
either lack of knowledge of or inatten
tion to the wishes of the foreign mer
chants in these respects has been a
great barrier to the progress of our
export trade; but our manufacturers,
since our closer touch of late years
with Mexico, Cuba and other Spanish-
American countries and the freer in
tercourse with China, Japan and In
dia, have improved very much in their
The money our manufacturers will
receive from Canada, Mexico, Central
and South America, the countries of
Europe, Asia and Africa, Australasia
and the Isles of the oceans will all
make for large pay rolls In our own
states and a greater prosperity in
every farm house and city home In the
land. Our export trade can he more
than doubled In the next ten years,
and the effect of that increase will be
to the advantage and benefit of the
people of every state.
A statement was made a few days
ago that a British agency had placed
an order In the United States for 5,-
000 automobiles. While that was a di
rect benefit to the manufacturers who
received the order, it also contributed
to machinists in New England, to coal
miners in Ohio and Pennsylvania, to
iron ore workers in Minnesota, to
freight carriers on the lakes and upon
the railways, to steel mills in Pennsyl
vania and Ohio, to workingmen in In
diana and Michigan, and to longshore
men on the docks of the Atlantic ports.
When that order Is filled It brings mil
lions of dollars of foreign cash to be
utilized in the business of this coun
Postal Savings Banks.
The first month's operations of the
postal savings banks are very satisfac
tory to the government officials. Post
master General Hitchcock announces
that the total deposits amount approx
imately to SOO,OOO, and that this aver
age continued throughout the year will
make an aggregate of $750,000. The
amount thus far received exceeds the
average per month for the best year of
the British system, which has long
been In effect. The postmaster general
thinks the plan can be extended, and
declares that if he had the requisite
means at his disposal he would open
500 additional banks at once. The Re
publican party favored the establish
ment of the banks "for the conveni
ence of the people and the encourage
ment of thrift," and the system seems
to be getting in its work.
Farmers Will Be Gainers.
Here and there, now and then, an
individual farmer will make a little
less, because of reciprocity, but the
farmers taken as a whole would be
galuers as producers. They would get
no less for any of their crops; they
would get more for some. Now, how
woult 4 they stand a 9 consumers? The
farmers are consumers of lumber and
shingles. The reciprocity agreement
would cheapen both of them. They
have been complaining of the high cost
of those articles for some years. Now
is the time to bring down the price.
The way of the aspiring Democrat
who wants a chance at the nomination
for president is not easy these days.
An Ohio organization of men calling
themselves progressive Democrats has
started into oppose the selection of
Governor Harmon as the presidential
candidate. This backfire In his own
state must be discomfiting to the Ohio
executive. And the situation becomes
still more complicated with William J.
Bryan squinting quite strong'.y in the

Proper Handling of Tariff.
President Taft has shown the way to
handle the tariff question as a business
proposition, practically taking It out of
politics. It is so simple and so obvious
that it is astonishing it was not adopt
ed long ago. In putting the tariff beard
to work and urging the creation of a
permanent tariff commission to take
i<s place, Mr. Taft has formed and pur
sued a policy as Important to the wel
fare of the country as any that a
president has marked out. In many

they are dormant; while the ground Is
in a workable condition; late in the

early in the spring before It has be
2. Where? In well-drained soil.
3. How? Dig an ample hole; spread
the roots out in their natural position
and pack fine earth nround them. It is
handy to separate the clods from the
fine soil in digging.
There is always a balance between
the roots and branches of a tree, so if
many roots have been cut off in dig
ging the tree from the nursery, a cor
responding amount of the top must
come off. If trees rre planted in the
fall some precaution should be made
against their being heaved out of the
ground by alternate freezing nd thaw
ing. This can bo done by spreading
a thick layer of straw or manure
around the tree.
There are tour esrential points in
the care of fruit trees. They are: 1.
Tillage. 2. Fertilization. 3. Pruning.
4. Protection from enemies.
Tillage Is just as necessary in tree
raising as in corn raising, and for the
same reasons: To avoid the competi
tion of other plants, to conserve mois
ture and to render plant food avail
Intelligent pruning is also very nec
essary to raising fruit. Each bud on
a tree is capable of giving rise to a
branch, and if every branch is allowed
to grow the tree will become too
dense. We must thin out the branches

dogs and can protect Itself well against
their attacks. They are fond of but
ting each other in play, but I never
saw one attempt to fight other stock.
It requires some kind of fence to
keep the goat in which he cannot
stand on the top of or climb up. The
best fence for Angora goats is the
woven wire fence. This fence need
not be over 40 or 42 inches high. The
fence must be close to the ground, so
they cannot crawl under. When their
hair is long enough to protect them
goats will often crawl through a
barbed wire fence, if the wires are not
very close or the posts close together
with the wires well stretched. Goats
will not jump over any fence, they
want to climb up, and then they will
jump down, or they will jump up on
top of the fence and then down; but
they never jump over a fence like a
njMle or steer.
always best to grow a good strong
branch on the southwest 6lde of the
tree, where the hot suns and strong
winds come from.
In pruning, we should cut the limb
in such a way that It will heal quickly.
To do this the limb should always be
cut as close to the body as possible,
and parallel with ft. A saw should be
used, and the wound must be coated
over with white paint or something
similar, to prevent weathering and in
fection from bacteria or fungus
growths. Another important thing is
to keep trimming oft the ends of the
limbs on young trees.
There are three kinds of enemies
that trees must be protected from.
The first of these includes rabbits,
mice, etc. A tall piece of heavy paper
tied around the base of the young tree,
or u piece of wire screening will set
tle this matter. The second class of
enemies contains the Insects, of which
the scale insects are the most danger
ous. The scale insect can be controlled
by spraying with a lime-sulphur wash
and the chewing Insects by spraying
with paris green. The third class of
enemies consists of fungus diseases.
These can be controlled by spraying
with Bordeaux mixture, which is com
posed as follows; Four pounds copper
sulphate, four pounds lime, 50 pounds

Consumption Spreads in Syria.
Consumptives in Syria are treated
today much in the same way as the
lepers have been for the last 2,000
years. Tuberculosis is a comparative
ly recent disease among the Arabs and
Syrians, but so rapidly has it spread
that the natives are in great fear of
it. Consequently when a member of
a family is known to have the disease,
he is frequently cast out and compelled
to die of exposure and want. A small
