Mary B Craig Box 163 Stanford Ky- Lincoln Co The many inquiries for small farms in this section is a good indication for better methods of production and to our mind will eventually make Adair county produce what it is capable of yielding The large farm without capital often proves a burdeh rather than a profit while the small farm is improved and gives in return a fair dividened after all expenses have been paid Occasionally there is a necessity for a farm of more than the average in size but such is an exception and usually measures its returns by the skill and management of its owner A few acres well prepared thoroughly cultivated with the weak spots strengthened each season will give far better results than double the number on the haphazard plan The evidence of bet ter farming of smaller landed estates is becoming more pronounced every year In a country like this no man can hope to become wealthy purely by farming but everyone has within his reach of energies a good living and a moderate bank account besides There is plenty of room in Southern Kenturky for three times the present number of good farmers and it will be a blessing when such an increase in the productive powers of our country becomes a reali ty Buy small farmS and the best machinery build up instead of wear out and you will add to the happiness and wealth of mankind Stock of Goods for Sale On account

a substantial business man popular with all his friends The bride is a favorite in the neighborhood and will be greatly missed by the young society people The busy season for the success ful farmer begins January the first and closes December the thirty first but the busiest period is seed time and harvest Of the two the harvest day ordinarily demand more attention for ripe grain or grass losesits worth in a hurry Just now the cutting of corn is pressing the making of sorghum on hands and the preparation for the next crop of small grain keeps both men and mules busy The rain of last

winning games and maybe this kind of baseball editorial apeals to the Detroit people more than other people At any rate it is good stuff Read it and think about it It makes no difference whether you havent reached first yet make up your mind that you wont die on third Its the difference between success and failureThe hero of the incident relat ed is George Morality of the Detroit baseball team

in school every r day but the teacher either does not teach them any morality or else his teaching is a failure The truth is the boys are on the streets from the time school f closes until late at

their boys off the street P Not the Generals Cow The first and the last duty of a common soldier is to obey or ders Nor is he allowed to put upon his orders a construction that might suit cases not antici pated This however some times leads to amusing results as in an instance told by L A Tol lemandle in his recent book Old and Odd Memories The scene of one of my fa thers anecdotes was laid in a southern seaport town where long ago a general and an admi ral were neighbors The gen eraVs house was fronted by a grassplot on which ie claimed the right to pasture a cow One day his wife complained that the supply of milk was fall ing off The sentinel accounted for the deficiency by saying that the grass had lately been much trodden down by the public The material despot imme diately gave orders that no ani mal human or other except the cow should be allowed on the grassplot and he addedmen were not particular in those days that if this rule were infringed the sentinel should be flogged Soon afterward the admirals wife having a pressing engage ment took a short cut over the grass in disregard of the senti nels repeated order to halt Sir said the offended lady dont you know who I am All I know is that youre not the generals cow The Youths Companion The Impulse Of Courage In many cases courage is merely instinctive Many a man has distinguished himself in the per formance of some act of heroism the thought of which caused him completely to collapse when the danger was over The same instance which leads a man to dodge when about to be struck will lead him without waiting to take counsel of his judgment to performancet of courage is just as natural as the impusle of fear and however much cultivation may lead individuals to dislike physical dan ger so long as there are Carnegie medals to distribute there pert sons receive Stand up for Your Friends Stand up for your friends is a grand motto Do not stand up with closed lips and listen to the abuse of those whom you love and respect It takes courage sometimes to defend an absent friendut if he is a friend and is believed to be a worthy man it is most cowardly to say no word when he is abused in your presence Silence is golden but not in a case where an old ac quaint nce a trusted comrade a respected neighbor a fraternal associate is being adversely crit icised having no chance to reply Then is the time to speak outran d to make proof of that true friend ship which is loyal in seasWland lout of season ever counting it sacred duty to defend the absent when wrongfully assailed Ex ieh J 7 1 I t i t u Horse Feeding It is no doubt true that Americans feed their horses too much hay It is common among horse owners to let horses stand to full mangers when not at work But in London the dab horses for examples are given hay for but two hours a day in the eveningl At the end of two hours the mangers are cleared Careful testing in decreasing the timo thy hay ration onehalf has not shown that the horses required any more grain than before to keep them in equally good condi tion Horses do not need a heavy ration of alfalfa hay Fed with grain probably ten or fifteen pounds of it is equal to a manger full of other hay As they become accustomed to the alfalfa it may be increased a little and the grain decreased It is a rich food and should not be used as freely as hays with less protein From Coburns The Book of Alfalfa The Spirit Of Worki The amount of work which each man accomplishes during the day depends upon other fac tors than mere hours of labor the most important of these fac tors js the spirit in which the work is done The spirit of the days work will depend upon the personal relation which exists be tween the office and the work shop If the employer is known to be interested in the welfare of his men they will be more truly than otherwise his retainers more zealous for the prosperity of his business but if his relation to them is that of a taskmaster they will be his slaves merely and quite capable of any treach ery The effort of the employer who would gain the loyal service of his men must be to preserve in every possible way the individuality of the employer to emI phasize his manhood and increase his selfrespect Short StopsI A man will always contrive in some way to let you know that he has on a new suit The bigger the salary the loud er the call of duty to

Stock Raisers When one has young pigs and breeding stock to care for he must think further than merely what food will fatten most Feeding without care is use less Give the cow sunlight it has its

roughage for grain peas and oats ground fine and bran in equal parts by weight and feed one pound of grain to three or four pounds of milk with 16 pounds of sugar beets a dayFor generations English farm ers have made extensive use of Dwarf Essex rape as a stock food This plant may be de scribed as a rutabaga run to head The seed is sown like rutabaga turnips and cultivated with out thinning Sow two or three pounds in drills or four or five broadcast and plant in early spring The seed is not expen sive and the crop is easy to raise Experiments prove that a heif er is easier to fatten than a steer If you havent a hog pasture it will pay to fence off a corner of the clover meadow for them The hogs will get more value for you out of the clover than it- would be worth in the form of hay and save the harvesting of it If whole oats are scattered very thinly on a floor and the brood sow is allowed to feed on them she will get enough to keep thrifty while not getting enough to grow fat This also keeps her busy and contented Most of the socalled friendship of the day is but pretense It exists only in name and as soon as it ceases to be advanta geous it is dropped The friend ship that

Flowers Chair 1JC Winfrey Secy Throughout the entire country the interest is growing in favor of better public roads The lo ical press of the many states is J hammering on the proposition all the time while the most influential city dailies are urging the importance of macadam roads and suggest both state and na cltional aid Not only the Newspaper people see the tremendous Jprofits and advantages of first class highways but the entire people are deeply interested and discussing ways and means from one side of the country to the other In Virginia the Railroad h Companies have tendered help by offering free transportation f for men who are to work on the r roads and also the free delivery iof material to be used in naldrig- them Evidently the Kuildingiof ff rFi iIi good roads will prove of inestimable value to the railroads as well as to the cities and the rural sections which will be directly affected Millions of dollars worth farm and forest products are wasted every year simply because of bad roads The peo pIe who possess loses the markets of the cities failing to get the products for their many consum ers the railroads lose the freight the substance so badly needed perish on account of badroads t The loss can not be fully measured under present conditions nor the blessings approximated by the building of substantial roads throughout the country At present the country is not holding enough of its most enter p sing and progressive young men Their very natures rebel at the uninviting surroundingsI and they bid farm go to the towns or cities many to engage in bnsiness of hazard with an equal chance of failure as they had upon the farm In the face of such conditions in every state it is high time that all the states and the national government should seek a remedy and apply it as speedy as possible The building of the roads is a trememdous proposition but our country is great and powerful both in men and re sources and this could be accent impoverishing people A small state tax sup l plemented by national aid would start the movement that could not be checked The National treasury could spare several millions of dollars every year for this purpose by living within a sane and economical sphere and not cripple its interests in any department The rivers and har bors are to be improved but the building and maintaining of an overgrown navy and army is merely a matter of pride and no a necessity or blessing If the surplus money expended on the fighting equipments of our country for the last few years could have been used to lift Americans and the products of the farm from myre of the country our improvedcy to ride the sees supported by a navy and backed by an army that will finally sap the very life of the country needs to be checked while the blessings and advantages for the rural districts need the strongest stimulants our government can give Wars may come troubles of great magnitude may arise but the strongest sofest and surest means of
