Treasurers checks for amounts due claimants but instead will mal is warrants to claimants thereby causing them the necessity and danger of misdirection and possible loss in the mails by remailing the warrants to the 1reasurer for payment As a matter of safety and conveni ence to those receiving warrants as well as to this office I would suggest and advise that all warants sent out by the Auditor be deposited with your local bank for collection It will probably not be possible to pay all warrants just yet but those we are unable to pay will be returnedwith checks for those that are paid If the above suggestions are complied with payments can be made with more promptness and possible loss through the mails reduced to a minimum Wry Truly Eo Farley State Treasurer Tarter Wins Eleven members of

Alfalfa Pasture for Hogs One of the most extensive and successful swineraisers in Kan sas tell the author this Twen tyfive years of pasturing hogs of jail ages on alfalfa has proven conclusively to me that a fourth to a half grain ration while they are on such pasture will produce greater growth per day than when in dry lots on full feeds of corn Hogs will maintain a rea sonable growth but not fatten much on alfalfa pasture alone I believe it profitable to feed them some grain while running o n green alf lfaIIf it is desired to fullfeed hogs they will make a rapid fattening growth from in creasing the grain ration while- o n pasture and with the full grain ration the meat will be nearly as firm as that of hogs kept in a dry lot where grain J alone has been fed I find no distinction o n the market between alfalfafed swine and those purely grainfed and they sell price and price alike The gen eral health of the alfalfafed hogs is equal to that of those maintained on any other feed and

Why Chicks Die in The Shells This question is of growing importance to poultrymen and especially to those using incuba tors to hatch their chicks Be fore hatching by artificial meth ods came into vogue little was heard of chickens dying in th shell When only one or two dead chicks were found in the shell in a setting of eggs there was less cause for remark tha where a large number are found ih the incubator There are many conditions sur rounding the egg before and after it is set that may result in the germ dying before it has reached full development The causes of dead germs maybe enumerated as follows First eggs that are kept too long or in a too warm or a too cold place before being set Second eggs that are too long exposed to the extremes of cold or heat after being incubated Third eggs that are shipped long journeys or roughly handled while en route Fourth eggs that are set be fore given a chance to rest twen tyfour hours after a long jour ney Fifth eggs that are not prop erly turned or exposed to the fresh air during the period of in cubation 1 Sixth eggs that are improper ly incubated by the lack of suf- ficientheat or an even tempera ture Then there are causes that lie back of the eggs and the condi tions surrounding them First the breeding stock from which the eggs are obtained may not be in proper condition Second the feed care quar ters and runs may be improper and not conducive to the good health and condition of tha breeding stock Third improper or too abundant nourishment the lack pf exercise and a failure to supply plenty of freshair Fourth too old or too impotent males or too old and too fat females or underdeveloped breed ing stock percenItage it may be just as well for if these chicks did hatch they andlundesirable Their failure to live and hatch is proof of their weak constitutions and another way of showing the inexorable law of Nature the survival of the fittest If there is a large per cent of dead germs it is well to look in to the conditions and if possible ascertain a remedy the cause as expeditiously as possible for many valuable chicks may be lost by premature death Cor Farm Journal Cynicisms It isnt the

corporation tax amend ment finds no friends in busi ness circles of the country says the Cincinnati Enquirer As its provisions are more fully understood its limitations and exemptions recognized its i n justice becomes more apparent Individual a n d partnership profits are exempt and by this preference advantages are given to competitors in the same line of business affairs as the taxen cor porations may be engaged in It is possible that our law makers have suddenly become aware that there is something baneful harmful obnoxous in corporations Has the name in sured this taxation What rea son exists that corporation earn ings of individuals firms and associations engaged in precisely the same business affairs should be left free from the burdens of the Governments Why should the corporations be singled out for the purposes of burdens be placed upon them If corporations which are profit able to those who hold stock in them are to be taxed and those which are not profitable are to be exempt from taxation it becomes plain that it is successful energy and business application that is taxed directly upon its results Incompetency dishonesty bad management wastefulness ex travagance and all the series of business ills follies and misfor tunes may exempt from Feder al taxation but the strong hand of Federal power compells the payment to Government of a por tion of the earnings of those who have been diligent prudent wise economical and successful through those business virtues- It is the earnings of those who practice those virtues that are to be taxed and the tax provision becomes a direct incentive to de struction of corporate net earn ings through high salaries to of ficials and employes to wasteful ness in a thousand ways and to methods that ars demoralizing to business and to society- If this idea of taxation is to be made the Republican idea in stead of their original one of tariff taxation then indeed has that party come to the parting of the ways with many of their people If this is adopted by a Republican Senate and a Republican House and becomes a lawthrough its approval by a Republican President no one can doubt it is a thorough Republican measure approved by the leaders of the party and that it will stand asa preecdent for policies that will follow and enlarge upon the de parture from the tariff as the revenue producer of the United States This step can never be retreat ed once it is taken The approval of the measure be the party makes a record it cannot efface if it wouldf Its passage by Congress is a plain statement to the country that the Republican part will not frame a tariff measure that will supply the revenues needed by the Government i v a Wanted j One hundred and fifty gallons of blackberries are wanted

4H- I with a factthat we least expect eq The subject of this sketch was born in Adair county and lived the most or quite all ofhis life in the same He had been in failing healthfor many years but the end came jn a hospital att Louisville where he had gone for an operation Like a cloud grief settled over our hearts in this far away land We are sad and cast down and the writer fails to find words to do homage to his good lifeHe was a consistent member of the Christian chUrchand proved his faith by his works He was a friend to the poor and needy no one was ever turned away from his hospitable roof All kinds of benevolent work found help in his plenteous fund His religion was to do good not merely to be seen of men but he was working for a crown What a beautiful crown he is now wearing I After battling many years with pain and sickness we feel that he is now well He has conquered over death and the grave Oh Death where is thy victory Oh grave where is thy sting Only we who are left are sorrowing Such a sorrow leaves us wholly without comfort save for the thought that his happiness is camplete and that we hope through the ameliating touch of time which in Gods mercy be numbs somewhat the most terrible anguish of the heart freshly bleeding from the wounds of a pitiless fate We can feel that the words All is well are the words from a soul weary and longing for rest The reward of the soul is the consciousness of having at tempted to do all things well Death has not knocked at the door of a nation but at the door of a home where love and con tentment reigned The family has lost a loving husband a kind and indulgent father and for us a Father Isreal a stauch adviser and ready helper in time of need We wonder upon whon the mantle is going to fall Oh death how sad The cold grave how gloomy f and yet I see another brighter vision the Lord and his angels are singing every where Another child has re turned from its pilgrimage and singing with loved ones around our Fathers Throne while we are sad and disconsolate In our minds eye we behold this beau tiful sight and our prayer turns to praise and we say Thy Will be done Farewell my faithful old friend never will I hear your voice in admonition or advice which was instilled into my youthful mind but I hope to see you as I knew you unaltered in the sweet by and by to clasp those dear old hands which were neither white nor small but Im sure with palms of victory bear Nowwe lay you to restbut not forgotten Such a life will live on and on in the minds of the people and every t boy or girl should follow in the footsteps of
