after the town had been in darkness for six weeks Messrs Ballard Murrell the owners of the plant sent the dynamo to Louisville where it remained under the care of a skilled electrician for one month When it was returned it was the means of furnishing stronger and brighter lights than at any time in the past It is an admitted fact that Columbia can not well get along without- an electric light plant and it is also the general opinion of this community that every family who is able should support the enterprise The proprie ors have been at considerable expense and they are soon to make a greater outlay of money in building an electric house in which to keep the plant and they should be met with prompt and substantial encouragement We hope that those who are not taking lights will apply for them at once It isan enterprise that must be supported enterprise that the business men citizenship generally can not do with outThe will of the late J J Biggs wall probated in the Adair

re vision which shall reduce execs = sive rates and at the same time preserve the Industries of the country I wish there to b no doubt in respect to revision o the tariff On the 16th of December 1908f Mr Taft the presidentelect said in New York City Unless we act in accordance with our promises we shall be made accountable to th American people and suffer suc consquences as failure to keep faith has always been visited with It would be better to have no revision at all unless we are going honestly and fairly to re vise the tariff on the basis promised by our party On the 30th of June 1909 Mr Taft the president of the United States said in New Haven Now I venture to say that i the republican party does not live up to its promises and sha- the people expect of it it will be relegated to a position like that f of his majestys opposition- On the 5th of August 1909 when President Taft signed the PayneAldrich bill hesaid This law is not a perfe tariff law or a complete compl- ance with the promises made in the republican platform strictly interpreted On the 12th of February 1910 last Saturday speaking again in New York President Taft saidNothing was expressly said in the platform that this revision was to be a downward revision 1 therefore venture to repeat the remark that I have had occasion to make before that the present custom law is the best that has ever been passed The president is doing his best for Messrs Cannon and Aldrich but he is strangely neglectful of liimself New York World Of Course it is Dangerous The American mistletoe a parasite plant is dangerous not to American girls at Christmastime but to trees in some sections rf the country particular I ly Texas according to a report the Department of Agriculture by Prof William LBray formerly a special agent in the office of investigations of forest pathology Speaking generally said Professor Bray the mistletoe is held in rather high regard every where because of its inherent i teresting mode of life becauseI of the traditional and historicalIt atmosphere which invests the original mistletoe of Europe and because of its desirability for the above and other reasons as a decorative Christmas shrub V The fact that it is a parasite implies a possible injury to the tree upon which it grows b again speaking generallyf the injury is regarded as compara tively slight and more than oft sett by the feeling of regard for tHe parasite Among the people who see it rarely and especially among those living in Northern cities who purchase small sprigs pricei1 for Christmas decoration th idea of mistletoe being a harm parasite on trees is quite lost jlsght of ti 4 itI XZi A7j i1 Nevertheless there are localities in which mistletoe becomes so abundant upon trees and so harmful to them as to make the control of it or its extermination a serious practical question This is notably the case in parts of Texas To Young Men Firsfn g Green Kentucky Robert H Mc Gaslin Pastor is very desirous o

weekly pa published by that Fouse turned over to those Cumberlan- Presbyterians who opposed the unionnof the churches This re suIted in a peculiar situation- Since the union the Cumber land Presbyterian has been published in the interest of the united church and practically all of its subscribers of which it had about 10000 mainly in the South and Southwest are Pres byterians By the

fever so feedwell if you desire early sit ters Nobody used to think it worth while to treat scaly leg in poul try but now we have come to know this is a serious trouble that will run through all the flockSometime the eggs of Barred Plymounth Rock hens are light in color but this is no indication of impurity of blood It is well known that a single mating of the turkey fertilizes the rest of the eggs for the sea son but among chickens this does not hold good So much depends on the opera tor of an incubator he or she is more often to blame fora poor hatch than the machine An item in an old poultry pa per I picked up the other day says to pick ducks lay two sticks of wood two inches high inva large tin vessel containing an inch of water Place the fowls on the sticks When the water boils cover and steam two min utes Have a hot fire and after steaming the feathers and down will come off easily Too many hens in one flock is the cause of sickness many times They should be sheltered at least different buildings when one has a large number We like to hear a hen talk when she gets into a nice clean nest Nice to have plenty of nests so the hens wont crowd upon the nest during laying When they crowd they are apt to break an egg and thus the habit of egg eating is often form ed Take time to get acquainted with your hens Pet them talk to them keep them tame Quiet broodies and mother hens are valuable So much of our suc cess depends on having quiet gentle hens We can have them if we will make an effort If you wish to purchase birds for layers or eggs for hatching it is well to seek knowledge on the laying qualities of the strain you have in mind Birds that have been bred for years for egg pro ducuqn transmit their laying qualities in a certain degree to their descendants FIWoo1i r rt a Freedom from excitement coupleA with gentle handling means more butterfat from the dairy cow and more meat on the back of the steer in the feed lot It io a simple case of cause and effect It was an astonished little housekeeper who took two cupfuls of rice to boil for two and found when it overflowed the kettle In which it was cooking that she had food for a fami ly of sixteen The Mexican turkey raiser cooks much of tie food for his flock and always adds a moderate amount of chill pepper which he contends keeps them in good condition and enables them to ward off disease There are said to be close to SOOO 000 dairy cows in the United States that are not paying for their keep It Is calculated to make a fellow groan to think of the job of milking this enormous bovine aggregation and all for nothing only the privilege of hav ing them around There are many feeders who will carry good sized flocks of lambs in their feed lots this Winter instead of so many steers as in former years With wool prices where they are and mutton kept up in sympathy with beef and pork prices the sheep feeder ought to do well in bis feeding operations Folks who live in a latitude where the thermometer goes to 20 below zero have possibly a bit of excuse for fol lowing the example of the methodical old elder who during the cold weather was in the habit of having his even tag prayer on a placard at the foot of his bed and was wont as he hopped in to look at it and say Them is mv sentiments too v r Unlike some other fruits and vege tables apples are not ruined by freezing though there is little question that their texture and possibly their quality are impaired as a result Such damage is reduced to the smallest if the fruit is kept frozen until used or allowed to thaw out very slowly Often in going through the orchard in midwinter one will find apples covered by the leaves and grass and a layer of snow which seem to have lost little of their original quality A friend who this year tiled a low place on his farm that for years past has been well nigh unproductive told us the other day that the best corn he raised this season came from this low tile tract and yielded close to seventy bushels the return being suf ficient in one season to pay for the cost of the tiling This is an instance which may be verified in the experi ence of almost any farm owner who has made a serious and intelligent at tempt to tile wet land Low land is usually rich land and uniformly pro uctive if relieved of its surplus mois ture In the anxiety which so many folks life showing these days along the line of getting hold tf cheap land the mer its of the cutover pine lands in northern Wisconsin Michigan and Minnesota ought not to be overlooked It fe true that the stumps will have to bft removed from this land but if reports are true that much of it can be got at from 5 to 10 per acre it would not be high priced land with the cost of clearing added The soil is fertile suitable to the growing of grasses oats and barley flint corn clover po tatoes and other root crops The con ditions i re favorable for stock raiSing and dairying anti altogether the open lug would seem to be excellent foe settlers of intelligence and energy Were we in search of cheap undeveloped lands we would investigate carefully these cutover pine lands Like some other much maligned things the Ben Davis apple Has its good Joints in spite of all the abuse which has been heaped upon it Load ed with the obloquy of having beet the variety which caused the fall of our first father in the garden of Eden of having the rosy smiling cheek but the punk inside the Ben Davis not withstanding this has a good many friends It is a hardy tree a very prolific and regular bearer the fruit stands up and takes a shine months after other chocer varieties have with ered away while many orchardists arc coming to feel that in spite of the low er price received for it it will bring In almost as many dollars during a period of years as will the shy bear ing Spitzenburg which is generally ac cepted as the standard of apple quali ty The Ben Davis would therefore seem to fill a mission like some otheI homely things A northern Minnesota farmer had an unusual exhibit of alfalfa at hit home state fair this year and inquiry into the case has brought out tho fact that he got four cuttings this season from his two acre patch the first yielding four tons to the acre the second three the third two and a halt tons and of the fourth up record was kept as it was saved for the hogs and chickens and was not weighed It the last cutting averaged a ton per acts it would make the yield per acre for the season Jen and a half tons The land on which this alfalfa waf groWn has a foot of sandy loam surface soil with clay beneath The ground was prepared in the fall and the seed sown without a nurse crop In the spring attherateot three pounds per acre The field was mowed tat of July and again the

Vater at the Same Time The possibility of boiling and freezing water at the same time in the laboratory is one of the most interesting developments of modern science The temperature at which water boils de pends simply onthe air pressure above its surface at the time If there is high pressure the water has to be made a good deal hotter to boil than at low pressure On mountains where the air pressure is a good deal lower than at sea level water boils easily at low temperature In cooking vegetables that require a certain degree of heat and where the water boils before that degree is reach ed the vegetables will not get done They consequently have to be put into a closed boiler so that the generated steam will create enough pressure for the water to boil at or beyond the re quired temperature In the experi mental proof of this fact water Is placed in a vessel and the air ex hausted from above the surface of the water As the process of pumping goes on the water will violently boil the steam congealing on the sides of the exhaust vessel If the pumping is continued long enough and the outside is cooled below the freezing point of water the water will continue to boil and bubble till it is frozen into a snowy mass of ice This fact is also made use of in tak ing a rough test of the height of a mountain Ordinarily at sea level where the pressure is about thirty inches of mercury water boils at 212 degrees F Now if it is noticed that at a certain place it boils ata few degrees lower the height of that place can be easily ascertained by comparison with a table made out for this purpose In general for every degree the boiling takes place height of about 500 feet is c Of course these principles untedI ply to water alone but are tic of all liquids New York Tribune FISH LOCOMOTION The Nature and Functions of the So Called Air Bladders Leaning over the parapet of some old stone breakwater or pier head and watching the fish playing about in the clear green depths below perhaps the last thought which is likely to occur to any of us is that we are looking on at a really astonishing thing That a fish is able to propel itself through the wa ter in any desired direction is in no way surprising but that it can change its level at will rising or falling with out the use of its fins and instantly assuming a horizontal or vertical posi tion according to the mood or need of the moment is a fact that a little reflection will soon develop into prime motive for wonder For it is clear that the fish must be able at will to vary its weight in rela tion to the water it displaces When it sinks to the bottom it must have sud rendered itself heavier than the medium it inhabits each time it rises to the surface like a released cork head first tail pointing almost vertical ly downward it must not only have transformed itself into something lighter than the water but must have become lighter in its fore parts than in its tail The mystery for such it undoubtedly is on a casual survey says the London Chronicle resolves itself immediately we come to study the nature and func tions of the so called air bladder in fishes By this contrivance all these intricate movements of the fish are brought about The bladder however contains not air as is commonly supposed but gas which is discharged or regenerated by certain organs of the fish according to whether upward or downward move ment is necessary also either the whole length of the bladder or only its front or rear portion can be inflated Thus the fish is able to swim level or by altering its center of gravity to raise or lower either head or tail at will Singular Services of Sheep In the northern part of India sheep are put to a use unthought of in European of American countries They are made to serve as beasts of burden The mountain paths along the foothills of the Himalayas are so precipitous that the sheep more sure footed than larger beasts are preferred as burden carriers The load for each sheep is from sixteen to twenty pounds The sheep are driven from village to vil lage with the wool still growing and in each town the farmer shears as much wool as he can sell there and loads the sheep with the grain which he receives in exchange After the flock has been sheared he turns it homeward each sheep having on its back a small bag containing the purchased grain Economy Mrs Blockley
