while Matthew and I were awaiting farther develop ments the widow instructed us to occupy the other side of the house which was the outside for a while and then we might return and repose upon the bed in the south corner of the room After fully complying with the law of Etiquette on this particular point we returned to find an awe inspiring silence pervading the room Although every thing was quiet in the loft it was quite probable that John and Bill would creep down the ladder and carry off the buggy as they had proposed doing but we finally slept to be awakened about 2 a m by a violent clawing on the outside near our heads and with fear and trembling imagined all kinds of vicious byhearingafter receiving a drowsy response Irom the loft continued Come down and- og possom hunting which he

eveningbeforeeases might be On being told it was dyspepsia she rather mournfully re marked that she had once known a man afflicted with that disease and he died told also of another on the mountain who was so old he became tired of life but couldnt die up theremoved down in the valley and he died The inhabitants on that mountain are rarely sick and seldom die a natural death and here it was that John M Clemens owned several thousand acres of wild lands at his death of which Mark Twain writes that the family expected so much and received so little Forty years ago it was covered with as fine yellow pine trees as could be found anywhere but was too poor to produce anything except potatoes and a kindof wild grass The timber has been mostly killed or injured by being notched for the purpose of collecting pine gum of which turpentine is made It seems that Twains father also owned near two hundred acres surrounding his house about halt of some four hundred acres of very rich level land formed by the junction of three small mountain streams which is called the Three Forks of wolf The house Clemensbuilt was situated near the lower end of this bottom which viewed from the surrounding mountainous country presents a picturesque appear ance Itis generally believed that J JamestowntTenn to Florida Mo but Bro Ren neau claimed that he was boarding with him at this house when Clemens left for Missouri and anyone knowing Bro Renneau as we did would not doubt it Jamestown Tenn is nine miles south of this place and may have been his nearest postoffice but we dont be lieve he ever made Jamestown his home Although Mark Twain was not born un til five months after his father had reached Florida Mo he inherited an inspiration common to that country A few miles below here on Obid

conclusionby charging him with all the polls listed by the Assessor and the Sheriff at 25 cent each and then charging him with 6 per cent penalty on these polls because they were not collected prior to December 1 1909 and he fails to give said Sheriff credit by 180 of these polls at 25 cents each which were allowed to him as delinqent polls by the Adair Fiscal Court and also fails to give him credit by the 6 per cent penalty with which he had charged him on the same polls and which penalty amounts t o 270 which together with the 25 cents on each poll would amount to the sum of 4770 and

JeffrJes Johnson fight on July 4th It is a significant fact that as land values become high farmers fgoirito dairying In the coun fifrigs of Northern Europe where JaiKl has reached extreme prices dairying is the principal type of farming Dairy districts are always the most prosperous districts Higher type of farms better grain yields better schools and better farms are always found in these localities Why is it that the dairy cow takes the place of the beef steer when land values become high It is simply due to the fact that the dairy cow will yield greater for the feed she consumes than will the beef steer She is a- more economical producer of hu man food We do not believe as a great many do that a cow will give only so much milk during the season and that ifshe commences to milk early in the spring and has good feed she will all be milked out early in the fall and will go dry correspondingly early We believe it all depends upon the kind of a cow and the character of the breed

Attorney Gen eral Wickersham that the ship pers had made out a good case was immediately followed by appropriate action the restraining order that was applied for was grantedat once and for the time being at least the wholesale raising of rates in the Western territory has been halted On the day when this import ant step was taken two other significant moves were made both of which must be accepted as evidence of a determination to exhaust the possibilities of the Sherman law as well in the spirit as in the letter The decision of the Supreme Court to the effect that the ordering of a re duction of rates is well within the powers of the Interstate Commerce Commission together with the accepting of the Gums amendment to the railroad bill making it imperative for the railroads to show cause why rates should be advanced are both moves in the direction of protecting the shippers and the public In the present instanceit must be allowed that so far as non experts may judge the reasonableness of raising rates isr by no means clear it is indeed scarce ly too much to say that every thing points tothat step having been part of a scheme to make stocks and bonds look attractive to the public something that might be described as a marketing dodge It will be remember ed how that for several months past the policy of increasing dividends has gone hand in hand with the granting of higher wages and with largely increased expenditures for equipment arid maintenance ofiwayThat the margin between gross and liet Income should thereby become more slender was not to be avoid ed and when to these consider I IfJ S ij5r ations is added the permanent additon to fixed charges due to new bond issues it will be seen that the position of the railroads was not an enviable one But the suspicion that the determination to spring a raise and to justify it by all these evidences of higher cost of operation was allpart of a prearranged plan in tended for market effect will not down At the present time we shall be asked to consider be sides the fgreat burden which will fall on the railroads when the crops must be moved al- ready we are threatened with an unprecedented congestion and warned to prepare for a paralyzing tieup It all seems to hang together and to justify the cloest Ifea raise in rates is in line with the necessities of the situation insistethat the case be made clear Louisville Times Snowfall in Alaska City Probably you wouldtbelievel it but snow fell during the past winter in Valdez Alaska to the depth of 58 feet by actual measurments taken during the year said W M Gilmon of that city Little of the city protruded above the sunshine and heavy rains combined to keep the aver age depth about fifteen feet- peculiarValdez presenteda sight during the winter Stovepipes and chimneys were just visible above the top of the snow and entrances to the stores and houses were made by tunnels through the snow All the busi ness affairs had to be carried on by electric light which waS burned all winter day and night Hotels and boarding houses were crowded with miners waiting to start for the inland mining dis tricts over the Fairbanks trail A large number of miners went over the Fairbanks trail during the past year to claims in the interior of Alaska Along this trail there are comfortable road houses every ten miles or so and there are none of the hardships that were the portion of the earlier prospectors before the trail was established Cutting Fodder Robs Soil There is much said now about the value of corn fodder by those who advocate the use of the silo It is true that the corn plant at maturity exclusive of the ear contains much valuable feed if properly harvested and stored Yet experienced oneSsay that here arefewways of more quickly killing the soil than to grow corn and remove all the crop by cutting the fodder It is good farm practice to cut up the corn and feed it on the place provided that fend from which it is cut is immediately manured t o restore the plant food elements taken from it by the crop When no equivalent is returned the soil is left sadly depleted elf its balanced chemical store of lifeproducing elements The ear of corn being largely starch and composed of water and carbon dioxide free com pounds of the atmosphere does not remove much fertility from the soil But the entire corn plant contains nitrogene potassium and phosphorus which the soil can ill spare JEhese cornstalks should be al l iri I IJ 1 5 Ii fr II i IU Irc oc EQ r- lWEEKLy I COURIER JOURNflL HENRY WATTERSON Edrturc3v
