opened sky but sunshine drov away unfavorable weather conditions early in the morning and the largest vote was polled throughout Adair county that has been recorded for many campaigns The returns in many instances brought surprise cheers from the winner and regrets from the losers but no where in all the country are found people who are better able to take defeat or accept victory than the legal voters of Old Adair From early morning until the polls closed at 4 oclock the workers of both parties made their fight and not a single disturbance so far as we have heard There is nothing so uncertain as an election and few things so animating as a political contest All signs of hope are courted all mentations of disaster dodged be yen sult must be accepted There are times when every man must take his medicine and it might as well be swallowed with a smile as forced down with a frown In the entire political history of this county the Democrats never made a gamer fight in so short a time and every man on the ticket deserves to know that every true Democrat appreciates his efforts while the Republicans dislike his strength You did your dutyand if there are any voters of our party who respond to game men they thazfailedown sting of conscience It was a Republican victory but it was in a republican county whose heavy voting strength has been conceded by all and whose parts are so cemented togetherthat the withIoutenemy Up to the present hour we have been unable to get the en tire vote of the County but the entire Republican ticket won by n1a1 jorities ranging from 100 to 150 In the next issue we will give the entire vote The Prohibition candidates got a very light vote an a large part of the voters overlooked voting on the Constitutions amendment but so far as we have heard the vote is favorable to t the change Squire Eubank was reelected Pulaski county wentDemocrat ic C G Jeffrie is now Squire by 47 votesWayne county flopped over Re publican 500 majority Dr R A

crib to hold it for better prices can count on 2 loss by next June of at least J5 percent That is to say leaving out of account the cost of hand ling and loss by waste 30 cents per bushel now is better than 35 cents next spring This conclusion is based on the rep orts of careful experiments covering seven years and extend ing over a large part of Mississippi Valley At the Iowa Station for example 7000 pounds of corn were husked and stored October 19 in a crib built upon scales so that the weight might be taken without disturbing the natural condition of storage There was a shrinkage of 9 per cent the first quarter year five per cent the next three per cent for the third and two and fivesevenths per r cent for the last quarter The experiment was conducted under the conditions that normally exist in this part of the United States and results may therefore may be taken as typical of those that will obtain on the average Miss iouri farm TJie Missouri College of Aricul ture however does not advise the farmers to sell their corn but to feed if to some class of animals thus returning as much of it as possible to the soil Careful esti mates show that where corn is fed 85 per cent of it can be sent back to the soil to preserve its fertility Setting the corn means taking this 85 per cent from the farm thus heedlessly reducing its fertility The Suns Little Sermon During the

sown in Kentucky under wrong conditions will prove a discour Kenaging tucky Agricultural Experiment Station nor the Commissioner of encourageaunwise experimentation or lead men to make unavailing efforts to grow alfalfa upon unlit soils or with wrong methods Let us consider the few essen tial things that alfalfa demands First a soil that is not sour Next a soil that is well enough drained so that water does not saturate it at any time of the year unless for a day or two fol lowing very heavy rainfalls Then a soil that is rich in the- omineral elements that g to make plants grow phosphorous and potash and well supplied tooI with nitrogen And to crown all a soil sup plied with abundant vegetable matter or humus Given these things and Ken tuckys sun and skies alfalfa will grow in any part of the State and will yield annually four or five cuttings a year of the richest for age either to feed green or to cure into hay An acre of proper soil devoted to alfalfa will produce double the total amount of available food for animals that an acre of corn will and of a higher class of nutrients That is because the alfalfa is so rich in protein the muscle and blood building elements that are so much needed ina ration for all young animals for dairy cows or any animals giving milk to their young To prepare an are of land for alfalfa may in some instances in volve considerable labor and ex pense If the work is rightly done it will be lavishly repaid by the grateful alfalfa plants and af ter they have grown upon the soil for a series of years they will leave it richer than they found it If each farm in Kentucky will grow alfalfa even if no more than two or three acres it will enormously increase the prosper- itY and wealth of the State There are sections of Kentucky where easily there may be developed large alfalfa fields There are other sections where to grow al falfa requires thought effort ex pense and care Success when reached will richly reward all this effortIt most unwise to sow alfal fa seed upon infertile soils or without right preparation of the few impor StantNevertheless the few things needful are of easy attainment there is no mystery about alfalfa tSgrowing take up the essentials of alfalfagrowing 7first that the j soil must be sweet It is a new thought to Kentucky farmers perhaps that soils are sometimes sour They may be sour upon limestone land but are more apt to be sour away from the limet M JjIf they are waterlogged dur part of the year they are most apt to be sour This acidity comes probably from the decay within the soil of vegetable matter r though some soils very deficient in humus are aicd An evidence of acidity is seen when clovers fail to thrive and certain weeds appear in the meadows The appearance of sorrel the little redtopped weed that is r seen in so many Kentucky mead fr ows of tent years is an indica J t J I tion of acidity A surer indication is the gradual disappearance of red cloverand the difficulty ex perienced in making it grow Lime is the cure of acid soils though drainage is often needed along with lime It may be applied to a freshly plowed surface at the rate of from one or two tons per acre of air slaked or ground lime and in some coun tries ground limestone is used with good results Lime is not itself a fertilizer but it makes the land sweet so byIment of the soil Alfalfa is a clover one of the best since it is of very long life and surprising vigor upon proper soilKentucky needs the useof thousands of tons of lime in con nection with manures Liming poor soils without manuring may not bring much benefit since there may be too little plant food there even when the soil is sweetened The older regions of the world where advanced agriculture has been practiced for centuries use great amounts of lime The writ er has seen great chalk pits in England whence had been taken thousands of tons of chalk a soft limestone to enrich the adjoining farms some parts of Kentucky IIn where red clover thrives the land has in it enough lime and is in no need of sweetening We will then consider the next requirement drainage Alfalfa grows through the aid of the little bacteria that inhabit its rootlets These bacteria must have air Therefore the flooring of the earth by complete saturation of water destroys the life of the bacteria and of the alfalfa it self If a post hole dug three feet deep in the field where it is de sired to sow alfalfa shows water standing in it for more than a few days in the year that soil needs underdraining before being sown to alfalfaIn the depth to the water level should be about forty feet If there is a greater depth it is generally the better i Now we will consider the mat ter of fertility Alfalfa feeds deep in the soil after it gets es tablished and it secures a part of its nitrogen through the aid of the bacteria fromthe air Nevertheless it is a gross feed er upon phosphorous and potash and cannot secure these from the air Nor will it at first secure all its needed nitrogen from the air Therefore land destined to be sown to alfalfa should be rich when sown If it is not rich it should be made rich before the seed is consigned to it Fortunately much Kentucky soil notably that in the bluegrass region is already in phosphorous This fact should lead to parts of Kentucky becoming as noted for its alfalfa as for its bluegrass Next comes the need of humus in the soil Now humus is simply decayed vegetable matter and is best supplied through turn ing under vegetable growths such as cow peas or through the use of stable manures Humus in the soil does several very need edthingsFirst supplies a direct plant food through the nitrogen phos phorous and potash that it con tains being especially rich inhit rogenSNext in decaying it forms com pounds that attack the lockedup mineral elements of the soil and sets them free to be absorbed by the plants Then it absorbsinois ture and makes the soil more slow I i L if5 t r I 7 yt in drying besides preventing the close packing that comes with puddling in clay soils deficient in humusAnd as important as anything perhaps most important of all it puts life into the soil Soils with humus in them are really alive for the decaying Vegetable matter attracts bacteria of many sorts that in their life and death and detay form many compounds that the plants can absorb and thus directly increase fertility and make plants grow Good soils are truly live soils filled with legions of micro scopic forms of life most of it beneficial to the higher orders of growing plants useful to men Poor soils deficient in humus cold puddled clays are literally dead soils and speak eloquently of dying civilization and decaying people Alfalfa then revels in a deep rich sweet sogHov are we to provide it in Kentucky First there are many river bot toms that are admirably adapted to alfalfa being made up of rich alluvial loams previous to air and moisture and not holding a sur plus of moisture On these soils alfalfa usually thrives splendidly Next there are new lands fresh ly cleared where robber crops have not yet had time ttake out the fertility Often these newer soils will respond wonderfully with alfalfa Some very steep mountain sides are growing alfalfa finely when sown on freshly cleared surfaces Some lands in the bluegrass section are naturally very fertile so that they will with little aid grow alfalfa very well Nevertheless even the best of the old cleared parts of Kentucky need manure before being sown to al falfaWe had best admit at the out set that most of the old Kentucky fields need enrichment to make them produce good alfalfa And the best way to enrich them is with liberal coatings of stable ma nuresFew farmers are aware of the great value of manures They enrich far in excess of the actual potash phosphorous and nitrogen carriedLiberal ofbbarnyard manure applied before it has leached in rain is the best preparation for alfalfa sowing- If one has not enough manure to prepare the soil for ten acres let him attempt to sow but five if he cant manure five let him content himself with two Two acres of vigorous alfalfa will yield as much as ten acres of sickly thin stuff on unprepared soil And two acres will make forage enough to make a further supply ofmanure so that he can next season enrich added acres and sow them them to alfalfa But while stable manure is the best thing and really almost indispen sable to success in growing alfal fa upon old Kentucky fields it can be greatly helped by being reen forced by mineral fertilizers

confidences will be permitted between Pretty Sue and Gallant Joe behind sheltering hymn books in Sioux City churches if the suggestion of Secretary Hell man of the YM C A to the minis terial association is followed out Secretary Hellman was defending the Y M C A against the general charge that the association does not fulfill its mission in that it fails to get a greater number of young men into the churches Would you think of putting a new inIquiyoung men to go to the churches as they are now generally conducted We got 14000 young men into our association rooms last year and threw about them good influences and got them to attend our Sunday meetings What the church should do Is to have its representatives at our building to show our young men that the churches are attractive The young men you have attend ing your churches are usually accom panied by young women and I tell you a young man is not susceptible to religious teaching when he sits beside a young woman and has the op portunity to visit with her They ought to be free from this temptation and the churches should look after the young men and not domplain because the Y M C A does not do it all KING OF FINANCE

teresting views to explain to their passengers on the whole length of the river are filled with regret at the loss The Crazy Mans Castle so called was 4ocated for a generation hear Minneiska Minn opi posit Gochrane Buffalo County Wis It was built entirely of driftwood by Putnam Gray a veteran recluse and was 40 years in the abearnsba few dollars each year by attending to the river lights in his neighborhoqd for the United States Government and froth the time of his arrival in the West in the sixties he occupied himself with the constructipit of the castle working at it spare times during every Summer He was Without material and without nails except what he obtained from wrecks and the building was made entirely of driftwood stray piecesof lum ber and logs from rafts and bro ken pieces of old vessels wrecked on the river Thus one part of the building would be made of bebthe hull of some abandoned boat Work went on slowly and did not approach completion until a few years ago When substan tially completed the castle was three stories high bristling with frowning towers and filledwith odd nooks and the most remarka 3le mixture of architecture Despite its queerness it was ah attractive building and travelers stopped to wonder at the odd genius which could have planned its erection During the Summer Gray lived in the Building and each Winter moved into town to return again in the Spring to resume his lifelong task Never entirely completed it had lately begun to look more nearly finish ed and Gray who was ordinari ly a silent man who had allowed neighbors and travelers to wond er for 4o years what his object could be in constructing such a abfew that he intended to make the place a Summer resort All through the years the castle stood despite the storms v hich rage furiously along that part of the river A few days ago when a storm struck the steamer Clyde as it was passing the castle and sunk the boat the castle was badly shaken too but it remain ed in tact for the time A week later however when a wilder storm swept out of Lake Pepin and down tIle Mississippi driv ingallvessels to shelter the cas tle succumbed and fell into the rivera mass of wreckage After the storm which howled all night Gray found the build ing on which he had spent 40 years labor and into which he had worked all the hopes of his life entirely destroyed He is heart broken bY hiS misfortunes and travelers now pause to see him pining amid that part of the ruins not carried away by the river Now past 70 years of age- rebuildingGray realizes that the of his castle is impossible in the time left to him and declares he has nothing more to live for Neighbors are caring for him tenderly butt about Medneiska there is a fear that Grays grief may lead to seri us results and that aged hermit may not survive the wreck of his lifesI strange ambition IBut twentyfour cases ofYel r remain under attention at New Orleans if J ti fn 11 t Some Rules for Fattening Kogs Mr Forrest Henry writing On the above subject in the Minnesota Farmers Institute report advises the hog breeder tb get all the growth possible wile warm weather lasts Feed liberally while it is good weather says Mr Henry even though it takes lots of corn but do not let the brood sows run in with the drove that isbeing fed for the market as they get too fat thus endangering theii breeding qualities While your pen of hogs is changing so much corn into pork look out for the health qf your hred This is the time swine plagueand inbtheir work I cannot give youa positive preventive for these diseases but this much is certain Anything that will keep your herd in a healthful condition is a prevent ive of that dreadful disease and at the same time will pay twice its cdst in the gerieral thrift of your hogs There are several hundred hogs that died in our neighbor hood last season I made it a study took close observation and laid down these rules to guide me in my own herd and succeeded in bringing them through without any loss 1 Breed from mature stock 2 See that they have dry clean sleeping quarters 3 See that they are never overfed aDdno sudden changes made in their feed 4 See thatthey have free ac cess to pure water 5 See that they have good shade during warm Weather 6 See that they are not obliged to eat their food in filth and mud and what is still worse in the dustv J p Never feed ori an exclusive corn diet 8 Do not inbreed 9 See that their surroundings are kept clean In warm veath er dust fresh lime around any places that are apt to give off a stench v I keep the following mixture in a dry place where they can help themselves the year round One load ashes 100 pounds salt fifty pounds sulphur twenty pounds copperas one bartellimef mix thoroughly In addition I often feed charcoal and soft coal In our opinion Some exceeding important points are touched on above Some will take exception to the statement that fat tening hogs should not be fed o an 1 exclusive corn diet Howeve we think that the majority of successfulswine breeders will indorse Mr Henrys view Fattening hogs led straight corn Tations are very apt to fin ish up without making sufficient byIshorts it surprising how hogs under a year old will grow and at the same time thicken in flesh An excellent idea is to feed some kind of slop at noon if the hogs are fed their heavy grain rations night and morning al though some believe in the practice thingrin the morning and afterwards allowing the hogs to have a liberal ration of corn A slop composed of corn meal and shorts andoif mealrtankage will contribute to rapid and economical gains Terrified You may well tfe terrified when you first suspect that you are a victim of chronic dyspepsia liver of bowel troub le These diseases alwaysgo from bad to worse

are crowded close together In the center the same flat landstrip flanked on both sides by the fishermens homes is a large open square 40 yards from the water front Here stands Plymouth Rock the first

appearance The thisbis a bit fIunique history and bears evidence of the early dif ferences that at times divided the the inhabitants into two factions For a long time there waged bit ter and spiritual wrangling between the two opposing parties and it even settled down upon the much cherished Plymouth Rock which one party c1aimedI ought to beremoved to worthy place in the town square and the other town wranglers protested it should not be moved an inch from its position even though they had to guard it with their pikes and guns v Finallyb faction drew up its forces around Ply mounth Rock and and attempt to move it up hill split it asunder which seemed a bad omen for those who had attempted such a thing until an ardent Whig leader zealIqusshould not swerve from their plan of carrying the rock to a place in the town square The portion that first fell to ground belongs to us he cried and that we will transport with all care and Prcbper home Twenty yoke of oxen drew th Whig part of the rock up the hill amid the shouts of the populace that pushed up the hill around the libertyTPore which was to mark the new site The ceremo ny of dedicating the rock to its position was very impressive and the people stood with bared heads and in reverent tones chanted their highpitched psalms in token of thanksgiving llIn the town square this part of Rock remained for more than half a century when a committee of the Council resolved to move it back to its orig final position and join it as bes they could to the other half Accordingly in 1834 on th morning of the Fourth of July the Plymouth Rock
