grea educators says on the present situation in our own country The best place to inculcate the ove of the beautiful is the schoolroom To the rising generation the most effective lessons can be given and from the school millions of children will carry the lessons to millions of homes After reading spelling writing and ciphering stwith small numbers and in simple oper drawing should be the most im Alegallm pictures and may be made to express symmetry and beauty All childre- should acquire by use of pencil an brush power of observation and exact rgthrough theirown work what the ele ments of beauty are It is monstrous that the common school should give much time to compound numbers bank discount and stenography and lift time to drawing It is monstrous tha the school which prepares for co1leg should give four or five hours a week for two years to Greek and no time at i all to drawing The main object i every school should be not to proved- the children with means of earning a livelihood but to show them how to live a happy ynd worthy life inspired by ideals which exalt and dignify both labor and leisure To see beauty and tj love it is to possess large securities for such a life Pres Elliot of How and University A meeting of the old fiddlers and a contest for honors in the making longtimeago f mUSIC was held jn styl in the Combest Hotel Dunnville last Saturday evening

SMALLER OLD SOL RAPIDLY LOSING HEAT EACH DAY British Scientist Declares That As tounding Conditions Prevail Will Expire in About 24 Million Years LoiidonThe sun grows smaller by 16 inches every 24 hours Such was the startling statement by Sir Robert Ball the Irish astronomer to an audience at the Bishopgate institute A few minutes later he calmed the apprehensions of his hearers by stating that the sun was in no immediate dan ger of becoming a cold black spot in the heavens but would in all probability last for a few million years Sir Robert spoke of the tremendous prodigality with which the sun dispenses its heat with a jocose reference to it possiITen million years ago said Sir Rob ert dealing with the period as though it was that Of an ordinary lease the sun was nearly a million times widor than it is at present because ofthe faN that it is getting colder and because of the principle that a red lint poker is wider than a cold one As showing Ow tremendous cpnihtfs tion that is going on in the sun to keep up its heat Sir Robbrt declared that if all the coal in the earth were poured into the sun it would last less than the tenthousandth part of a second in that tremendous conflagration Fortunately said the astronomer it is not to combustion alone that the suns heat is due Tri its process of con traction the particles of the gigantic orb produce such a tremendous friction that the heat from this friction is equal to jtlie burning of SOOOOO globes of coal Of late proceeded Sir Robert the idea has prevailed that the suns energy is due to the presence of that mysteri Oils agent radium If that is so and if sameJyears allowed to the sun because of com bastion or friction we can rest corn Iorted in ihe belief that it will warm this old earth for one billion years By which time ailded Sir Robert most of us will be beyond the reach ot solar energy CRITICAL EPOCH IS AHEAD l John Barrett Says This Country Wlust hriadetNew YOJkThe United States is facing a

Waged at Wash ington Regarding Advisability of Building 18000 Ton Vessels of War Washington A lively controversy is being waged by the naval experts over- the designs for the battleships Mirhigan and South Carolina WheLherihe Unit ed States shall follow the lead of o her nations and build 18000ton wai vessels or stick to the present maximum is tile chief point in dispute IWhile the greatest secrecy surrounds the deliberations of the naval experts it can he said that one design has Iv on worked out to such a point that if it should be adopted the contracts could he let early next year It involves a rad ical departure in battleship construe Hon both as regards the character and disposition of the main battery and the ability of the ship to remain afloatfle spite the severest pounding Although presenting an entire novelty in battle ships it has found siuch favor among the officers who are familjar with it that at present it seems likely it will be the one chosen The act of conjrresa authorizing the Michigan and South Carolina provide displacpimeritpassed the question of building still larger ships has been much discussed and there are several advocates of at least lS000ton ships among the officers of the general board The principal argument of these offi cers seems to be that other nations are building ships of that size and the Unit ed States must follow suit or be left he hind Admiral Dewey has expressed himself as in sympathy with the idea There are officers in the construction corps however who do not share this opinion They argue that the principal gain by such an increase in size would be a slightly increased speed but that this would not be effective except when I the ship was fresh from dock and that it could hardly be sufficient to produce much advantage in action Moreover It would be obtained at the cost of other important factors t An officer who discussed the matter said Suppose it were decided to add 2000 tons to these ships It could be tlone either by sending them further into the water orby giving them greater length In the first case they could not get into our harbors and there are no locks that have water enough to take fhem in Channels would have to be dredged and new locks constructed Tn the second case itis doubtful if the ad lition of 2000 tons would give the required increased speed and it would en large the target presented to the enemy by 12 per cent and decrease the handiness of the ship in maneuvering Each increment of speed after a cer tain point is reached is obtained only by a very greatly increase horse power This officer cited the case of a battleship which steams at 16 knots with about 9000 indicated horse power to attain 17 knots and 17000 to make IS knots He was inclined to the belief that with ships of 16000 tons as the South Caro lina apd Michigan are to be an addition al 2000 tons would not give sufficiently increased engine pOWer to produce an advantageously higher seed Half of that increase would be taken up in the increased length and nearly the other half in the added turret which the greater length would demand CHALK LINE DIVIDES HOME West Virginia Woman Complains That

Alfalfa g j II Floats or finely ground phos t h tic rock not treated with sul phuric acid is a very cheap sup ply of This phos phprus is not available when applied to some soils deficient in But when floats are mixed with stable manure in some way the p is made available and the plants can get it Therefore the wise farmer sprinkles his sta bles with floats which absorb the ammonia and make the stable smell sweet and when the ma nure is applied its value has been almost doubled Stable manure fortified with floats is the thing to apply to the soil to make alfal fa grow I This manure may be applied to vapreceding crop of corn or tobac- CO t if it is applied heavily enough so that there is a large residue left Or it may be applied directly before the ground is plowed for alfalfa This is a safe way It maybe turned under or harrowed in or disked in or leftto lie on the through the winter and the land plowed in the early I spring Just get it over the land in any way and as soon as convenient i after it is made it will do the work Apply as much as tons to the acre and more if you have it This will be a help but in strong Kentucky clays there is no need to fear putting on an abundance itwill not leach away and the more humus you get in- that soil the better your alfalfa will be Do not be by this information you can afford rvtcruse the nutriure to start a crop that maintains itself and makes such a large amount of forage that will if fed and the manure saved in turn enrich yet other fields for many yearsv Late in winter or early in spring the land may be plowed It should be broken deep and as soon as the land is ready to work it should be j harrowed to a good seed bedJ Alfalfa wants a firm seed bed so that the little rootlets find an unbroken way down into the moist earth beneath At a little later than time for sowing oats say the last week in March after danger of hard freezing is over sow the seed A peckof alfalfa seed fifteen rounds is enough to the acre i more is waste There are in a Jb bushel 14448000 individual alfal i fa seeds To sow fifteen pounds per acre would put on eighty three seeds to the square foot tTwelve plants to the square foot are all that will grow to maturity The seed may be sown broad cast and harrowed in It may be sown broadcast and covered by drilling in after it a bushel to the acre of spring barley an excel lent nurse crop The beardless barley is the best Or a half bushel of oats sown on an acre will serve as a nUrse crop only that in this case the oats mustbe cut for hay as soon as bloom ap pears and before thy lodge The land after seeding must be left smooth so that the mower- may be run over it close to the gr There may be sown fertilizer with the alfalfa to help the ma mire and it will probably be well repaid After alfalfa is sown if the t land is very dry and cloddy it should be rolled If it is moist a plank drag should make it smooth and level At the time of sowing if some earth from an old alfalfa field can f eQiadv it is well to make it ne- fcjlisd sow it dyer the field atj the rte of about 100 pounds to the V 1r I r 4I r Kentucky HUBERT JQSEPHEWING phosphorus humusI phosphorus Iisurface twentyfive discouraged undI 111 VREELAND acre Or soil on whichsweet clover mellilotus has grown The object of this is to transfer some of the bacteria that thrive on alfalfa roots to the new field It is as the housewife puts yeast in her bread However if the manure has been put into the soil and it is not sour the seed itself willcarry enough bacteria to shortly inoc- j culate the field These bacteria increase very rapidly in soils fill ed with humus A good test of whether a field will grow alfalfa or not is to ob serve whether it contains earth dOESIIshould be done to the field until the barley is ripe or the oats in bloom It may then be cut close to the ground This close cutting is good for the young alfalfa which needs clipping at this timeSet the binder then to cut as close as possible and if it must be cut high for any reason fol low at once with the mower and clip the stubble close Then let the alfalfa alone to make a second growth If there shonld come rainit will grow rapidly for about fortyfive days or a little longer After that it may turn yellow and cease to grow That means that rust has struck it Leaf rust is the pest of alfal fa in Eastern States The rem edy for rust is mowing off the sterns as close to the ground as practicableIf is enough hay to be worth saving rake it off andcure it If weeds are the main growth allow them to lie and mulch the land supposing them not to be thick enough to smother it When winter sets in have a growth a foot high standing to protect the crowns and hold the snow Do not ever pasture alfal fa the first season Do not ever allow stock to tramp over it in cold weather or drive across it with wagons Oftentimes the fall is a good time to sow alfalfa in Kentucky When there is enough moisture in the land to start it well in August or September it may succeed well sown alone The manner would be to plow a wheat stubble as soon as possible after harvest applying a light coat of manure and immediately wording it do wd to a good seed bed using every care to prevent its drying out The way to dp this is to have a harrow and roller in the field when the breaking is done Let the plows run a quarter of a day and finish out that half day by rolling and harrowing the ground to bring it to a degree oJ fineness that will enable it to hold mois tureNo nurse crop is needed when alfalfa is sown in thefall it must be about an inch deep and should not be sown when there is merely a little moisture in the ground with dry soil beneath lest it sprout and perish before rains come Weeds will not trouble this fall sown alfalfa much and it makes four crops of haythe next year though not quite so heavy crops as the spring sown alfalfa should make The time to make alfalfa hay is when it is about half in bloom and before the leaves have fallen from the stem That will be about the tenth of May Take this first crop off pr lptlytos cure the hay while it is hi its prime and to allow the next crop tocomeI Ct1t the hay by ralatigr ntQ sniall windrows while it is yet i y f jjjjjjjjjjijjjjj tough and cocking in rather tall slender cocks so thatthe air may get at the hay Do not delay rak ing until the hay is dry or you will lose many of the leaves and they are worth as much pound for pound as wheat bran The hay may cure in the cock if the weather is fineor they may be opened out and sunned and again piled up and hauled to the barn When only a few tons are put together the hay must be pretty dry else it may mould When putting many tons in one rick or mow the hay need not be so well dried as the heat prevents mouldingAlfalfa hay will keep well in mow or rick but when ricked it must be covered with wild grass straw or boards as it will not shedrain well There will be four cuttings the second year and these should be taken off when the proper stage of growth has been reached whether the alfal fa is long or short When it be gins to bloom the leaves to rust and buds appear on the bases ofc the stems it must be cut else it will cease to grow and no subse quent crop need lYe looked for If perchance from drouth the second or third crop happens to be very short it must be mown off as promptly as though it was a good growth and then the sucI ceeding crop should there be rain may be very much heavier than the poor one removed Had it not been cut however this good crop would not have been securedOn rightly prepared with favorable seasons of sufficient rain alfalfa in Kentucky may yieldas much as six or eight tonsc to the are A yield of four to five tons may more confidently be expectediAlfalfa will endure in profitable codition on suitable soils for from six to twelve years Grasses en croach upon it and may be de stoyed by disking after the roots are tough enough to endure it A spike toothed harrow to follow the disk will more surely tear out the grass The harrow will not in jure the alfalfa roots When once well established anI annual drilling in of liberal potFon most sever al times over in the increased yield When it is desired to plow the field it may be turnedwith a very sharp plow and strong team and the roots are readily killed when cut off Any crop will yield Very abundantly after alfalfa corn and tobacco being perhaps best suited to follow alfalfa since small grain may lodge because of the exceeding richness of the land After one or two crops have been taken off the land it should be again manured and sown to alfalfa which will take much more readily and yield much morel abundantly than it did at sowing The Commissioner of Agriculture begs Kentucky farmers not to sow alfalfa on poor or unprepared soil or in a wrong manner 3 since by so doing failure is almost assured and the whole cause of alfalfa culture will receive a se rious setback He believes however that wherever a man has learned to grow alfalfa he wills rejoice all his days and be the richer more intelligent and beti ter man for it and his neighborhood will be helped by the

country and that its name was given it as a result of the fact that it was brought to the United States in the straw included in the im pedimenta of the Hesian troops sent over against the American revolution sts by George III in 1776 It was first noticed on Long Island about 125 years ago and has since spread coextensively with the progress of civilization and wheat growing West North and South Sometimes it ompletely destroys the growing wheat in certain sections and the average loss it causes is about 40000009 bushels annually or about 6 or 7 per cent of the total crop The entomological bureau has studied it ong and closely and the recommend tions made to farmers have undoubtedly kept the damage far below what it would otherwise have been and yet in spite of the scientists and the farmers who act on their advice the fly got beyond control during the season of four years ago and destroyed at least 80 per cent of the crop in the infested region the re sultant loss being near 40000000 This extraordinary and unfortunate development was due to the condI- tions of the weather favorble to the pest and to an unusual scarcity of its parasi tie enemy The parasite which forms inside the fly has been secured in large numbers by entomologists and liberated in several wheat growing States and much good has suItedEx Terrified You may well be terrified when you first suspect

IHnveSpectacle Fades Away n San Francisco On the night of August 15 when the whaling bark Gay head was cruising about 75 miles west of Pribyloff island in Behring sea Mate Pease and the men on deck were thun derstruck by the appearance of a great city immediately ahead There was the shore line and rising above it were thousands of electric lights twinkling along a hundred streets Here and there apparently at prom inent corners were larger lights and along the shore were the myriad ofSlights showing at the wharves But the mate and his men knew that this must be an imaginary city and that for hundreds of miles beyond where these lights flared out was only an expanse of deso late water The mate called Capt Fish er and he looked upon the scene and was bewildered There was no accounting for the wonderful This city seemed as real as San Francisco seems to a vessel anchored in the channel near Goat island When daylight came the spectacle faded away and in all directions w only the heaving bosom of the cold sea with no land in sight and no great city within thousands of miles EXPERIMENT WITH AIRSHIP Professor Zahm of Washington Disr covers the Best Shape for a b Balloon pint J V

able to be up most of the time I feel like writing a few lines for the News so my many friends who are readers of your most excellent paper may know why I am not filling my appointments I have not been able to preach but once in the last twenty daysj I have overworked myself this Summer in the evangelistic work and have some nervous exhaustion and will be compelled to rest up but I have hope that I will soon be out again and able to fill my regular appointment I used to write often for the Spectator under the nom de plume Philander but it has been so long since I signed my name thus that I have almost vforgotten If I had looked up its meaning when I first used it I probably would have selected another name Some people might have thought the name suited me pretty well a few months ago but they were mistaken There are a great many people who name theirchil dren and never think what the namereally means Not many know the meaning of their ow name fact is thY dont think there is much in a nain any way but as we are to have the same name in heaven that we have here we ought to be more par ocular about them than we are The Lord changed Jacobs name tojsrel because it meant sup planter or healholder mod the iicljys iF J pgfr f fJd lliYiij i East Side Public Sqnare Lord named him Israel pre vailer with God or soldier of God The Lord did not like the name Jacob any longers I have not been writing uchIfor the News for want of and then we get out of habit of doing things and habit is said to Become second nature but I may time in the future for more writing than in the past Our community has been sore ly afflicted with typhoid fever this Fall and we have one case ChasbMurrah who is much better at this writing Mr TG Hadleys family have perhaps suffered the severest affliction from its rav ages of any in the community Mrs Hadley was the first to take it and because of other complications she died The oldest daughter then took it and then Mr Hadley and little Birdie iSo the family was scattered thinikng it best to leave the old home for awhile But they have all recovered and have come back to their home again But it is a sad home without mother
