scientists It is subject farmers should study and uncerstand in order to make it valuable to them Mr AF Woods of Bureau of Plant Industry makes thefollow in aidgour readers in making experi ments Innoculation is necessary 1 On a soil low in organic mat ter that has not previously borne leguminous crops 2 If the legumes previously grown on the same land were de void of nodules or nitrogen knots showing the need for supplying the nodule forming bacteria 3 When the legume to be sown belongs to a species not closely related to one previously grown on the same soil For instance soil in which red clover forms nodules on alfalfa when sown with alfalfa for the first time Innoculation may prove advan tageousj 1 When the soil produces a sickly growth of legumies even though their roots show some no dulesIf the cultures introduced are of the highest virility their use i will often result in a more vigor ous growth 2 When a leguminous crop al ready sown hasl made a stand but ves evidence of failing due to the absence of root nodules The use of the culture liquid as a spray or by the mixture with soil and topdressing may save the stand if other conditions are favorableOn other hand innocula tion is unneccessary and offers little prospect of t 1 Where the gainIusually grown are t to the average and the roots upI nodules in normal abundance a Culture nitrogenfixing bac 1theyields under all average condiS tions They do not the 1 nitrogen itself but the bacteria make it possible for the legumes to secure nitrogen from the air though the formation of the root nodules and where the soil IS already adequately supplied with these bacteria it will not fusually pay to practice any form- of artificial innoculation g 0 2 When the soil is already rich i in aItitable to innoculate a

payment for stock before ship ment This had its inception and growth by reason of long distances heavy express charges and unacquaintance of the parties in most such transactions and the would be purchaser has learn ed that the purchase price must go forward to secure the desired proberty and in nearly every case before he has had an oppor tunity of seeing the same On the other hand many breeders have been conscientious in such transactions rigidly adhering to honorable dealing thus establish ing for themselves a name which has made them numerous friends and their business a satisfactory one As this industry increases of course more buyers and sellers appear and in the rush to secure business and make money the sell ers offer greaterinducments than are warranted He may lack suf ficent knowledge of the merits of his stock to be able to properly estimate their value but with a grasping desire he informs his pa trons in glowing terms that his stock is so and so and that by some fortuitious circumstance he can sell at greatly reduced figures This deceives the unwary and he finally awakens to the fact that he has been cheatedbIn many ways do we hear of this one and that one being gulled so much so that it is materially in juring the business and if allow ed to go on and increase will ul timately ruin all There is no way of getting rich in this busi ness suddenly it should not be expected Every one must be willing to do and get his share by careful painstaking efforts There are others we regret to say some who have gained a wide reputation who fail to keep that portion of the golden rule relating to doing as you would be done by They fail to sppreciate the fact that the money of their patron is worth 100 cents on the dollar and that they should have value received therefor They as sure their patrons that they can sell for example a specimen which can score 60 points for 5 and by this inducement the 5 is forwarded and a specimen which can score not to exceed 85 points is forwarded the seller presum ing on the ignorance of the pur chaser or his own ability to so land his shipment as to overcome aHobjections which the purchaser may raise

publications is leg ion and that in the great scram ble for existence every adver tisement which is likely to turn in a few paltry dollars will be received and laid before the reader but we dont care

Press and is an exquisite piece of word painting It is taken from a manuscript now in poss ession of Lord Kelley and in his library It was copied from an original letter of Publius Lentu ous at Rome it being the usual custom of Roman governors to advise the Senate and the people of such material things as hap pened in their provinces in the days of Tiberius CaesarPublius Lentulus Procuator of Judea wrote the Senate There appeared in this our days a man of great virtue nam ed Jesus Christ who is yet living among us and of the Gentiles is accepted as the profit of Truth He raises the dead and cures all manner of diseases A man of stature somewhat tall and come ly such as the beholder may both love and fear His hair is the color of a chestnut full ripe plain to his ears whence downward it is more orient and curley and waving about his shoulders In the midst of his head is a seam a partition in the hair af ter the manner of the Nazerites His forehead plain and very del icate his face without spot or wrinkle beautiful with a lovely red His nose and mouthso formed that nothing can be rep rehended His beard in color like his hair not very long but forked His look innocent and matured His eyes gray clear and quick and luminous In re proval he is terrible his eyes piercing as with a twoedged swordthe greedy the selfish and oppressor but looks with tender pity on the weak the er ring and sinful Courteous and fair spoken Pleasant in conversation mixed with gravity It cannot be remembered that any have seen him laugh but have seen him weep In proportion of body most excellenta man for his singular Ii beauty surpass ing the children of men The whole worldirecognizes that Russia has been beaten and that the prolongation of the war with Japan under present cir cumstances can put add to herI humiliation and bring disaster to her forces on land and on sea Latest dispatches from St Pe tersburg indicate that even the Czars government begins to open its eyes to the situation and peace talk is indulged in again One report is that Russia has askedupon what terms Japan would agree to peace Three Russian cruisers badly crippled have anchored in the harbor of Manila and have been ordered to disarm and remain in that port till the endof the war The fact is that Russia undertook to carry on a war with a people the resources of which it underestimated and it also didnot measure the difficulties maintaining immense armies and navies several thousand miles from their natural bases Rus sia had undoubtedly progressed during the past half century to a place as a world power but her crippled condition now will reduce her to a position whence Europe as well as the far east will not fear molestation for some years to come Farmers Home Journal- Many farmers are not aware that

Two of Columbias Prominent Young Peo pie to Wed On Thursday June 29thatIO30a m at the Home of the intended bride the Rev J Pendleton Scruggs and Miss Fanne Garnett will be united in marriage the Rev E W Barnett of Corbin Ky officiating The groom is the pastor of the Baptistchurch of this city and is a young Minister of good ability beloved by his entire charge and the people of Columbia in general He was born and reared in Virginia and is by birth and culture a gentleman in the truest sense He was educated in Richmond Va and in the Baptist Theological College of Louisville Ky where he graduated in the spring of 1903 Immediately after his gradual tion he was called to the pastorate of the Baptist church of Columbia which has enjoyed his faithful services from that date to the present His devotion to his great calling and his general in terest in this town and section to vance its moral growth have adI strong ties to the love and esteem of a large number of Adair countys best people and from the delivery of his first sermon to the present he has Steadily grown in the good will and fa vor of his church and this entire com munityThe intended bride is an accomplished daughter of the late Judge Jame Gar nett and a lady of talents andculture She is a graduate of the Baptist College of Georgetown Ky and in the rich graces that go to make a lovely Christ ian lady both by birth and culture she is well endowed and will be greatly missed from the circle of young people in this city Owing to the recent sad ness in the family due to the deathof her father no invitations will be issued and only a few friends will witness the solem rites- Immediately after the vows are taken they will leave for Virginia where sev eral weeks will be spent visiting the parents and friends of the groom and places of historic interest in the Old StateIn vance of this happy event the News extends congratulations and joins with their many friends in wishing them a long life of happiness Commencementj The closing exercises of the com anIticipatedsince the entire program has been enI deredAre shall merely speaK of that part which came after last weeks issue The program each night was full up to expectations and those who really appreciate advancement and culture were delighted with every effort The Oratorical contest mention of which was made in last weeks paper vas won by Mr WA Grant of Adair county but it was not a walkover game for the young men pitted against him were close after that hon or On Tuesday and Wednesday even ings the younger pupils entertained the large audiences with music and recitations and the manner in which every piece was rendered received en thusiastic applause Thursday evening the entertainment reached its climax in the recitation con test by five young ladies for the ten dollar gold medal affered by the News Miss Mary Williams of Green county won the prize but it was doubtless the closest contest ever witnessed in this part of the country where talent and training sought honors That program both in elocution and music showed the worth of the best talent and best training and we d ubt whether another class of like number of young ladies could be found in any other school in this State that could get as much out of the same selections The medal was awarded to the suc cessful young lady by Mr Logan Win frey an attorney of this town in a short and well worded speech While the Judges were deciding the contest Miss Duncan recited showing that she is an elocutionist in the truest sense as well and truly as one of the ablest and most successful teachers of elocution in this state Throughout the entire program every efficientItraining patrons in particular and the public in general employed There are some pensioners in Adair county who do not have the right idea of what is best for them For instance it is bad policy for you to fall out with one merchant especially if you are in debt to him and change your account giving your papers to another merchant Theole you leave will know that you do not want to do the proper thing and will have no hesitancy in so saYIng Therefore it is best for the old soldier to let his account continue with the merchant he begins with and iihe is behind curtail expenses and get even j tTYi i 2 x IWaterA partial investigation as to the cost of putting in water works in Columbia is now under consideration and the par ties who are looking up this matter be lieve that it will not require as much money as the rough estimates heretofore made The pump is priced from 180 to S740 while the pipe in car load lots can be bought at a much better discount than heretofore estimated This investigation will continue until the cost of putting in a plant can be ascertained When this is done and the figures give proof then it can be intelligently figured from an investment stand point either under munici pal or private control This proposition is too important to be lightly considered by those interested in the growth of Columbia and when its cost and earning capacities can be de illlbebeen up for some time but season af ter season slips by and the same old conditions remain It is the most important step within the reach of our people to give Columbia a substantial growth and protect values Gentlemen if you desire to see Columbia grow if you are tired of high

farm by the exercise of muscular force while at the present day he needs brains more than muscle to enable him to manage laborsaving tools and implements with skill and efficiency When the labors of the farm were nearly all performed by the laborious and fatiguing applica tion of human force farming was irk some drudgery But now when teams and steam power respond to the bidding of the tiller of the soil agriculture is the most agreeable livelihood one can desire True at spme seasons of the year farmers are required to labo early and late but this is only on suc occasions when as the old

thing to have the atten tion of the country directed to the ethical side of wealth to the methods em ployed in acquiring it and to the effect of these methods upon the wellbeing of the people It is a good thing to have a point of conscience raised as to the right of a man to give away which he has wrongfully obtained an to the right of an individual or institution to receive stolen or fraudulent wealth For in answering the questio- whether our churches or institutions o learning shall become fences the re ceivers of stolen goods brings vividly to the minds and consciences of the pIe the fact that the only wealth wort having is the product of honest indus try And when men who have acquired great wealth by dishonest practices andI selfish methods find that they cannot wen give away their money and their riches bear the stamp of public odium there will be less eagerness to get rich quick by ways that do not square with sound principleiIn this country we are accustomed t ask not what a

heads are ripe cut the clover Have enough help engaged to take up the hay as soon as cured A great deal of judgment is required in order that we may determine just when the grass is ripe enough and not over ripe how much to cut down at one time and just when to mow on account of threatening weather These perplexing questions must all be answered in view of the follow ing conditions Distance of haul ing facilities for handling the crop and the amount of labor at our command Do not let the hay get too dry before raking or the leaves will be reduced to pow der and lost in handling If the grass is matured before cutting it need not be so dry before plac ing in the mow I would recommend the follow ing tools for handling the crop A good sixfootcut mower self dumping rake tedder two low wagons two sets of slings and a modern barn outfit consisting of atrack rope and pulleys If a large acreage of hay is to be made a hay loader will prove a valuable investment and its com panion a side delivery rake will be almost indispensible In case your barn is not constructed so as to admit of the use of slings you can use double harpoon hay fork instead Do not overlook the importance of having plenty of efficient help engaged for the hay harvest as a few dollars invested in this di rection will mean a great saving in taking care of this important crop Have the mower knives sharp and in the morning keep them humming so you can make hay while the sun shines If a portion of your hay gets wet dry it thoroughly before butting it in the mow and if possible keep this hay in a seperate mow When your hay is cured do not waste time by cooking it in the field but hustle it off to the barn as soon as possible I have seen many tons of good clover hay ruined by violating this rule Hay making is a busy time and the farmer can well afford to work a little overtime in order to get the crop into the barn in the best possible condition I do not think there is any excuse for making hay on Sunday It
