Hughes Tim Cravens and Robt Todd Mr H G Chilson one of our stir ring citizens has got his crop of millet and peas in the shock It wouldappear from the above that Mr Chilson is on the slow order when it comes to work but the very reverse is true He is one of the stirrers and the lateness of his millet harvest was due to the im mense amount of work preceding its sowing The season was highly favor able to late crops and his mixture of peas and millet was almost equal to a wilderness and the harvest is an abund ant one of nutritious food Land Stock and Crops OO- The new cropof corn is now being fed and the porkers are taking on flesh rapidly ooo A R Feese of Cane Valley sold to Bright Fox a spanking pair of mare mules 16 hands for 350 000 Coffey Bros Young bought 5 mules ranging in price

left the neat sum of 12000 for stock in Adair county last week Both firms enjoy the confidence of sellers throughout our part of the State and from the prices paid and the sum left with our farmers their worth to this section is readily seen 000 Fix up that small farm and see how soon you will have a buyer Within the last few weeks we have heard of several people from other counties who want to buy small farms well improved in this county but when a search is made the places are not found There are too many large farms neglected and too few small ones to beimproved Sell off a part of your land if you have more than you can profitably handle to some good citizen who wants a few acres and then the county will begin to grow and improve 000 Last Wednesday several of our best farmers delivered cat tle in Columbia and while the bulk of them were from 2 to 3 years old yet all seemed to be in fine flesh and doing well From general appearance we took it that the season just closing has been an unusually good one for grazing but we aie informed by the sellers that it had not been ThereIsuperabundance of rain and the grass was too watery to give best resultsr r 000 Fox Sanders

to Cananea in the month of February This is a propOSII tion the largest of its kind in thetworld It has made itself in the past five years In 1900 its pop ulation was zero today it is 20 000 but the camp has one of the greatest mining men behind it the world has ever produced Col W C Green who is president oftthe company This company is styled the Cananea Consolidated Copper Co and today has enough ore blocked out to run the smelter 100 years The smelter is the latest im proved and its capacity for ma king copper is three cars per day Today copper is selling at 17 cents per pound Each carload is worth 10000 in gold It costs the company 10000 per day expenseThe its way beneath the high top peaks for nine miles but transportation is goodcan catch an electric car most any way you want to go Because this camp is in mexico you musnt think for a minute that it isnt civilized We have colleges churches and libraries and lots of pretty senor itas who will make a man put a smile on his mug if he is from KentuckyI to Kho W5is building up so fast am sure it has made quite a change in the past six years I think Grady yule is a back number since she lost her oil well but perhaps Billy

the human body It sees to have a skin on it a skin that is tough and calloused in some places and tender in other places Sometimes too the epidermis seems to rub off and when you touch these raw places on the average mind the owner just fairly squalls I have likewise noticed that when a man has a bald spot on the top of his head you can touch a hairless spot on his mind by poking fun at the surface bald spot But some mens con sciences and consciousness and entire mental apparatus have been put in training aud have exercised so long and hard and arduously that there is a calloused sort of- dry skin covering their whole mental machines and you cant find a tender spot anywhere that will respond to the touch of the linger of scorn and shame These Vmen make good statesmen or judges of sweat shop industry or Philadelphia politicians I was commenting on this idea In the shoe shop one day and Looney Doffeer said he thought Vmen were growing worse every year He said a long time ago men were pure and honest and virtous and holy and consistent and noble and merciful and gen erous and charitable When was dot periodical con summation remarked the cob bler as he cut a hard piece of leather to trim it down to the proper shape and proportion of a half sole snd twisted his mouth to suit each angle of the knife as L he laboriously followed the line If a stranger could have seen his face through a window ignorant of what he was doing with his hands his first impression would have led him to believe the Dutch man was dying of a convulsive lit superinduce through great mental strain or acute indigestion When was dot time when mens was shtrictly honesht und merciful und holy accordingly he enquiredagain as he stopped cutting a moment to rest his face Oh a long time ago replied Looney sort of hesitatingly and looking around the crowd for lielp Sampson was a goodman and a big husky feller too So was Jo Vseph andj George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and Hen ry Clay andlGrant and Abe Lin boln and Solermon and David and BunkerHill and Adam and Moses andf Elijah and Elisha oh if thereever was a bully good fellow it was Elisha He could perform miracles But how aboutjthose poor lit tle children that the she bears tore up afterj Elisha cursed them1 inquired Professor Dadd 4I think there were 42 of them And Elisha seemed to enjoy their torture and death hugely Durn emthey deservedall they got exclaimed Mr DoffeI They made fun ofElishas bald head durn em They was sassy brats the hull durn gang of em rand Elisha was justified in hav in the bears eat em alive Dunkleheimer had gotten up from the bench and was getting a paper of tacks from a shelf just over Looney Doffers head andI when that gentleman had finish ed his defense of Elisha the cob bIer lifted Doffers hat up and allowed his balditude to grin out at us like the evil spirits of fam ine grinning at the peasantry of Russia aud the cobbler laughing ly remarked Dot balditude beezness was aI

should buy soom of dhose reversible pants dot was doublebreashted mit two decks oopIhat offlmit shpontaneous hetty kettaccordidgly Looney snatched his hat out of thecobblers and pulled it so far down over his ears that those innocent organs lapped down like theleaves of a clubrooted cabbage stalk and flounced out of the shop with the angry vim of a defeated candidate going home to scold his wife and discharge the hiredman Thats the way it goes exclaimed Professor Dadd When you touch an honest persons ten der spot he goes off mad They havnt practiced hypocrisy long enoughfto hide their anger Suc cessful men have made a study of how not to whine when their tender spot is touched They are like the old veteran who prac ticed several years how to grin and bear it while thrusting a needle into his leg When he got so accustomed to it that he could thrust the long needle in to the bone without the least sign of a winceor a contortion of pain he began to doctor for paralysis previous to applying for increase of pension He insisted that his liwer limbs were paralized and his home physician prodded him in the place his wife suggested and he never winced or changed color But when they took him be fore the Pension board the in quisitive doctors stripped him naked and gave him a thorough examination and when it came to the needle test the doctor made preparations to prod him in the spot indicated by the helpless patient and the old soldier was bracing himself for the shock when another infernally mean doctor prodded the victims other leg with the point ofa redhot pyrographic needle He touched a tender spot unawares and the yell that spouted out of that old soldier loosened the screws in the door latch and in his struggles he lifted the other legthe train ed leg and accidentally touched that infernal redhot needle and a fresher and louder yell escaped from his hypocrisy and also from his vocal box And the spank ing those playful doctors gave him with their open hands cured him so completels in about two minutes that he went home on foot while his two friends took turns in carrying the stretcher over their shoulderc until they got outside of town when they threw it into the river andran on to overtake the paralytic sol dier who had been so miraculous ly cured but who was still as mad as the very devil Well said Careadam Hooter there is a tender spot on the averidge mans pollytics too He will jine in with you in condemning the Trusts and the system of graft and political rotten ness and swear and cuss louder than you ever did but when you intermate

is a sign of the times that in many womens organizations the establishment of classes in cook ery sewing hygiene and sanita tion in the home are being freely discussed and earnestly advocat ed The evils of ignorance of such matters are so apparent and so appalling to the twentieth cen tury woman and the almost im possibility of securing even at high cost efficient service along these lines which are so neces sary to the maintainance of the home life so pressing that the question has become a problem bestImay say about club membership spoiling the home time will soon show that the organization of women into deliberate bodies for the discussion of the questions of the day are most important movements prolific of untold good to the isolated sisters who are too burdened ortoo tired to think out ways and means for themselves and too weak in influence to push them as individuals These club women my make mistakes even our national rulers do that you know but their powers are developing in the right direction and the various organizations resettling down to a business basis born of experience and earnest thought Make Merry Eat and make merry4 but beware of evil

JOSEPH EWINGI During the recent tour through Kentucky of the Alfalfa and corn Special conducted by the Department of Agriculture there was distributed from the train several thousand pamphlets de voted to alfalfa culture in Ken tucky As this subject is at tracting such general attention in the State we want to givp as general publicity as possible to the teachings of this pamphlet The pamphlet is too long to pub lish in one issue of the ADAIR COUNTY NEWS but we will pub lish installments from it each week till the entire pamphlet is published We suggest that those of our readers who failed to obtain copies of the pamphlet preserve the issues of the Farm ers Home Journal so they can study the alfalfa question thoroughly and at their leisure The body of the pamphlet was prepared by Joseph E Wing of Ohio The following introduc tion was prepared by Hubert Vreeland Commissioner of Agri cultureIn this booklet to the farmers of Kentucky we- 4eem it but proper that the Com missioner outline that views of the Department of Agriculture Labor and Statistics regarding the introduction of alfalfa into the State Let it be thoroughly under stood in the beginning that this department does not advocate a wholesale sowing of alfalfa un til the farmers have made a thorough study of their lands and are reasonably certain that their soil is adapted to the growth of this wonderful forage plant We are of the opinion that the impression which had gained foothold in the State that alfalfa could not be grown here was due to the failure of a few men to get a stand who sowed some of the J seed a few years ago without re gard to soil conditions and with out having studied the nature of the plant This bureau does not claim to be infallible in its opin ion that alfalfa will prove a boon to the farmers of Kentucky When human methods must be employed we realize that there is an element of chance in every undertaking in life But realiz ing our responsibility we have not gone into the matter blindly When the present Commission er was entrusted with the re sponsibilities of this important department of the State government he realized that it was his duty to get out of the beaten paths and to devise as far as it lay in his power ways and means by which the agricultural and live stoce interests of the State would be advanced Appreciat ing the fact that the word agri culture covered such a broad Sscope that no mae can reasonab ly claim to be an expert in all the various phases of farming he deemed it expedient that he should put himself in touch with men who have given special crops years of undivided study and to adopt the best and most fpractical ideas presented Chief amodg thes were Joseph E Wing of Mechanicsburg Ohio and Prof JN Harper then Agriculturist at the Kentucky Experiment Station Tfte Commissioner of Agricultnre went over considerable of the States terri tory with these gentlemen and after noting the conditions care fully it was unanimously agreed that alfalfa can be grown in many parts of the State the one thing needful being the dissemi nation of the proper information There were already a few thrifty plots in various parts of the State w i I rfiz tA lt ri t ti 1 itr 5o tJfifi A 4 II i t4 and the State Department of Ag riculture sent out some seed for experimental purposes with the result that a number of good stands were secured The subject of alfalfa culture was discussed at all the farmers insti tutes held under the auspices of this bureau The farmers gener ally became enthused and the last report of this bureau shows that thert are now 3700 acres of al falfa in this State as against less than two hundred acres two years age This encouraged the de partment to such an extent that after consulting with Mr Wing who is recognized as one of the best alfalfa experts in the United States and Prof Harper who has experimented with the plant for a number of years it was de cided to run a special train over the State giving lectures and dis seminating literature especially prepared for the project This met with the hearty approval of the Advisory Board of the State Department of Agriculture as well as the various farmers clubs The Bureau of Agricult ure was fortunate in securing the services of Mr Wing as the principal lecturer on alfalfa It might be interesting to the farmers of the State to know that there is now a field of one hund red acres within less than a mile of Frankfort A sample from this field measuring five and one half feet in length is now in the office of the Commissioner of Agriculture There is another field of thirty acres a few miles from FrankfortIn from Mr WT Kane Fallsburg Lawrence coun ty Ky the writer reports that his alfalfa is in a good thrifty condition and says that his third cutting yielded him 4240 pounds per acre The yaller dirt in which it grew he continues is over 1100 feet above the sea level and is exactly where the U S Geological Survey made a station Kane Knob from which with the aid of glass hill tops can be seen fifty miles distant There are also small plots in Clay and Knox counties and the alfalfa is reported in good con dition In Warren Henry Chris tian Pendleton Nelson Fayette and a large number of other counties alfalfa is being grown with success Mr J J Botto of Boston Nelson county has grown alfalfa for ten years with a marked degree of success while Prof Harper secured three tons per acre from the first cut ting from the Experiment Sta tion plot this spring We would particularly urge the farmers to be careful in the selection of their seed But with goods ed true to germination a good deep soil with plenty of humus and with the proper at tention the first year the farmers should be able to at least raise alfalfa in sufficient quantity for home consumption- In addition to the lectures on the culture of alfalfa tke ser vices of Prof P G Holden of Ames Iowa were secured for the special Prof Holden has made a specialty of seed corn selection and the cultivation of the cereal with the result that last year he increased the corn crop of Iowa 10000000 bushels He made known his methods by means of a special train which he ran over his State making stops of thirty minutes With plenty of corn and good crops of alfalfa we are of the opinion that Kentucky will even tually take up her former rank among the stockfeeding States of the nation l

the socalled Jefferson Bible Recently Mr M Rey Yarberry loaned us a copy of that book and it is just to the opposite of infidelity It is titled Morals of Jesus and is purely a compilation of all that Jesus did and said as recorded in Mathew Mark Luke and John in Greek Latin French and English and shows the great theme of love which seems to have inspired and actuated Mr Jefferson in his lifes work The Jefferson Bible is now the property of the United States Was purchased d this year and may be seen in the National Museum at Washington The argument in favor of re taining the secret ballot syste is overcome by the undisputable facts known to every voter in this State that there has been mor frauds more contests more heated partisan fights and more buying and selling of votes since it was inaugurated than dccured within the State for a hundred years before The fight in Louis ville seems to be over ballots Both sides are claiming that gigantic frauds will be committed in the comming

the eyes of all engineers of steamships the deck officers of their ships are profoundly igno rant Here are some of the sto ries they tell- YoungA mate went into the engine room with a message from the Captain to the engi neerThe latter saw the other was interested and began to ex plain things to him Being a civil and obliging man he made no attempt to tell fairy tales to the stranger and moreover he kept as clear as possible of all puzzling technicalities He pointed out the cylinders the va rious rods the eccentrics the shaft andso on explaining roughly the uses of the various pumps and auxiliary machinery and the mate was genuinely pleased and interested and said so Then when going upon deck again a thought seemed to strike him Halting on the ladder he called the engineer and explained his difficulty Thanks awfully for showing me round Macs Youve made the whole plain as a pikestaff But one thing I dont exactly grasp What are your boilers for The engineer promptly replied Why to keep the firemen from weary ing you idiot A burly thickheaded skipper had been given the command of a little steam collier Going up with great pride onto the bridge of his new ship the first

yield Inthe first place we must have fowls that are at laying maturity when Winter comes pullets that have reached their full size and hens that are in condition to lay through moult ing and not too fat I have found very little difference in Winter laying qualities of Plymouth Rocks Langshans and Leghorns under conditions favor able to each breed Leghorns will produce eggs at a less food cost but require better house conditions and must not be al lowed to run out in the cold and wet The hens or pullets must be from a laying strain and ev ery detail of housing feeding and care well looked to in order to secure Winter eggs- I shallnot discuss methods of feeding as this subject has been fully treated but in order to bring hens to laying in yinter requires considerable care Yet proper feeding is not the whole thing Other requirements must be met or the best food in theI worldvillnot make hens The neglect of seemingly unim portant matters will often great ly lessen and sometimes completely check laying It hens are not protected they will burn the food up to keep warm will not exercise as much as is necessary consequently will not lay They must be pro tected from cold winds have plenty of fresh air and sunshine dry clean quartets and scratching material with which to keep themselves busy A bundle of straw for them to scratch in brings as good returns for its cost as the same amount of money ex pended in adiff rentwayEx ercise converts the carbon in the food into heat and thus it is utilized leaving the material from which the egg is formed while without exercise in cold weather much more oodin fact more than the hen can eat is required to keep up the heat egg1henceWater is necessary as over sixty per cent of an egg is water so the hen must have an abundant supply and it should not be al lowed to freezeCorRural World Judge J P Hobson of the Court of Appeals who will bea candidate for reelection can go before his people with an envi able record on the bench of our

ROTATION On considerable portion of the farms5ofNew England it will be found the better way to do as- Inuchof the plowing in autumn as circumstances will permit The weather is Usually suitable the teams in good condition and the farmer ean take time to do the work in the best manner without being in a hurry piopeFlYdone repeating the operation in the spring Fall plowing allows of the seeding being done considerably earlier in the Spring and that is usually of much importance Good plowing is of the first consideration in the profitable production of crops Ifeis really the foundationJ oil which the other work is to be done hence the necieSsity for doing it well If therear ton s or other ob f staclesii theay off good work being perfofmed then it will be- policyto remoyetljem as far asc ti J aj lfl ik t sJ J I f r1 F 9i ifJ1 t Jr tJ lt t5fT i Jh t t 1 this is practicable Now about the manure shall it be applied on the surface or plow ed under That will largely depend on circumstances or the con dition of the manure to be ap pliedTime was when the writer was of the opinion that all the manure possible should be spread on the surface and harrowed in and that was largely the practice for yearsBut somehow in the changes being made in methods upon the farm it is being found that man ure plowed under gives the best results iu the largest crops If the manure is coarse or strawy turning it under gets it out of the way in cultivating the crops and that is quite an object While this is being written a large amount of horse manure isI being drawn and spread on grass land that is to be plowed this fall and planted in corn another spring This field in the order of rotation has been mown three years and the last crop must have been two ton to the acre It seems almost too bad to turn aver such a swath but we can not very well do oth erwise and the thick sod must be full ofVegetable matter that will go some way in helping to fertilize the soil for a good crop of corn another year Where a large amount of corn is grown rotation will be found particularly necessary In our own case corn is grown the first year for silo and the following year grain is sown and the land seeded to grass where it remains for three years when the pro cess is repeated By following this course there is little time for the grass to run out and good crops of hay are the rule from year to year On some farms it will do to keep land in grass much longer but in our case there is only land enough for this five pear rotation By it we find that more hay is produced of a better quality as there is more clover and the soil is in creasing in fertility Ex Dangerously 111 Do not by neglect allow yourself to become critically ill as you may very easily do by not nipping the early symp toms of
