The amendment, championed by

does not mention the Japanese by

bars against them in broad, generous
terms under the name of "Asiatics."

Money Hidden by a Miser.
.More monev has been found on the
Georgo Carncrosa farm about five
miles west of the vlllnge of Earlville,
Chenango county M. Foster, who
now owns the place, while remodel
ing the stables in the barn several
days ago, found secreted in the base
of one of the stanchions a tin can
containing over $50 in silver coins.
The dates on the coins were in the
'70's, showing that in all probability
they had been hidden for more than
30 years. It was some 10 or 12
years ago that George Carncross, an
old miser, was found dead in the
house on his farm. After his death a
fortune was found hidden in out of
the way places about the house and
barn. Some $1,700 was found hid
den in an old rubber boot which was
hanging from a rafter in the attic,
and in tin cans and old receptacles
about the cupboard. In all $17,000
was found, which was adjusted in
County Court and the money turned
over to Carncross' sister, whose home

"I will say that on my recent visit
I found the cooking in the hotels and
restaurants throughout Scandinavia
to be excellent," said Luis Jackson
of the Erie railroad. "In the hotels
of the largo and small cities of Scan
dinavia considerable attention is paid
to the preparation of food, though
the table d'hote Is generally restrict
ed to a few things. It is well known
that the cooking in the great Ameri
can hotels is as good as anywhere In
the world, but It is an admitted fact,
that the cooking in the hotels of our
small towns, such as Canaryvllle,
Podunk, and Itabbltt Center, is poor
and unsavory. The trouble being
that in 'making up their bills of fare
they endeavor to imitate in length
those of the hotels in large cities,
with .the result that good cooking is
sacrificed to an Indifferently cooked
"Preliminary to the dinner in
Scandinavia, especially in Norway
and Sweden, one partakes of the ap
petizers (hors-d oeuvre) on the
smorgasbord. These consist ,of .a
variety of dishes, ham, smoked
sausages, smoked salmon, sardines,
sardells, a variety of cheeses, rad
ishes, cucumber salad arid pickles,
with bread and butter. After this a
dinner of regular courses is Eerved.
A great Scandinavian Institution is
the sandwich, sold at restaurants,
railway stations, etc. Thl3 consists
of one slice of bread with meat or
cheese on It. They do not put a sllca
of bread on top as we do. The oread
is the smallest part of it. The smok
ed, sausage, in every variety, or ham,
overlaps the 'bread. These sand
wiches cost from four cents up :n
our money. They are small and one
can eat several of them, but they
will, I think, take first pfizo in com
petition with any sandwiches frovn
other parts. At the railway stations
and in the restaurants of small pleas
ure steamers, one of the most popu
lar dishes is beefsteak and onions.
The beefsteak, however, Is not to be
compared with our steak. It Is fried
instead of broiled, and is merely a
thin slice of beef, but it is covered
with a thick layer of well fried
onions. As I said, everything is sav
orily cooked. -

A GIFT OF LOVE.
At this joyful Yuletido season, every
heart is full of cheer,
Peace and good will toward all man
kind 'Tis the best time of all the year,
The children's eyes are sparkling
Their cheeks are all aglow,
Theyv are expecting dear old Santa,
With a lot of gifts you know.
Why is the world so full of gladness?
Can anybody tell?
Tell again the sweet old story, while
our hearts with rapture swell.
How our Father up in glory, His love
for us will nevfcr cease
Sena a Saviour down from heaven,
Sent His Son the Prince of Peace.
How in the little town of Bethlehem,
the lowly Christ, our Lord, was
A wondrous gift to tne world was
given, on that first Christmas
The kings of earth gave Him no wel
In no royal cradle did He lay,
But Instead a humble stable
In a manger filled with hay.
To the faithful shepherds watching,
glad tidings came that night,
When over the plain and hillside,
they saw a marvelous light.
A voice was then heard speaking in
accents sweet and clear,
Telling oi God's great goodness,
And bidding them not to fear.
Long had they waited for the Mes
siah; think how glad they must
When they heard the Angels singing
Peace on earth good will toward
For the whole host of heaven came
to tell the story
Melodious anthems filled the air,
to Uod gave they the glory.
Hastened were the shepherds' foot
steps to where the star's bright
Seemed to beckon to them and clear
ly show the way.
Still from heaven a light Is shining,
uod s word tnat all might see
As they sought and found Jesus,
even so may we.
Christ's love so great and terider,
sun sneas its guiding rays.
Let us like the lowly shepherds offer
up our ardent praise.
Mabel S. Dexter,
The possibilities of profitable farm
ing have again been shown by the
Long Island cauliflower growers, who
will realize some $300,000 on this
year s crop.
This result has been made possi
ble not by improvements in growing
the vegetables merely, but by a line
and carefully managed system of
marketing. The association has sent
374 refrigerator cars out of River-
head, and will send fifty more before
the season closes, in addition to big
shipments to New York and Brook
lyn in ordinary cars. The crop has
thus been distributed among four
teen outside cities, thus preventing
v glut in any one market and main
taining a high level of prices.
That Is the sort of work which
ought to be done for farmers all over
the country by commercial agencies.
But so far as the middlemen have
done it heretofore they have been
looking out for their own pockets
chiefly and the farmers had to take
what was left, a process which has
discouraged raising vegetables for

city markets. Now that the Suffolk
county farmers have shown that they
can both raise and market crops,
combinations ought to he made with
distributing agencies in the cities
which will do the work for a fair
profit. At present prices there Is
money enough In farm produce for
a living profit for both farmers and
middlemen. But if middlemen re
fuse to "play fair" in the matter,
Cuffolk farmers, have s- - that
they can handle both ends of the
business, and thus reap both profits.
