to Yale to coo fy Iitt e ft1ndtor the Morris K Jesap j fctlr in till forestry school By all odds the easiest way to maintain soil fertility is by keeping stock And of the different types of animal husbandry dairying takes the least from the soil A mare has this advantage over a geldingthat when she has been in jured in such a way as to unfit her for work she can raise just as good colts as when she was sound A good share of that nasty muss in the barnyard following each heavy rain may be done away with by equip ping the barnyard slope of the eaves with piping or trough which will carry the water to the corner of the barn Many a farm could be transformed merely through the adoption of long time leases together wjth the follow ing of such agricultural and stock raising methods as the tenant would feel justified in going into as a result of a longer tenure of the land There is not one farming community in a hundred where the inhabitants make a practice of so handling the farm fertilizers as to get the most pos sible good out of them In the vast majority of cases 50 per cent of the fertilizing value of manures is lost before it reaches the land IThe flock of hens closely confined should not only be given the grain green food and water they need but should be prqvided with a dust bath in a good sized box Finely pulver ized road dust is excellent for the pur pose and it will be the more effective if three or four pounds of powdered sulphur are added Before selling the old homestead it may be a good idea to call in a real estate agent to make a list of the points in its favor as a selling proposi tion It is quite possible when the catalogue of virtues is completed that you will think the farm plenty good enough to keep as proved to be the case in an instance of which we heard the other day It is a mighty good thing for boys to have vacations and just as fortunate that schools begin early in September so that they can once more receive the benefit of system orderliness and study Whether the summer intermission has been spent entirely in recreation and sport or hard manual labor the change will be a refreshing and beneficial one w Not very much in the way of mu nicipal progress can be claimed by aristoImenace peace and quiet of its inhabitants The levy ing of a five dollar dog tax is usually the first tangible sign that any town is awaking from its long sleep IA headland of grass at the ends and sides of a tilled field usually much im proves its appearance The stuff that might be raised where the horses turn is usually a poor stand and scraggly If the headland is in some good grass a good bunch of hay may be secured the strips are neater in appearance and usually this neatness will extend to the roadside just over the fence An interesting feature of the Spo kane apple show which is to be held the latter part of November will be a display of apples on which there have been photographed portraits and scen ic views Prizes will be offered for the best specimens The skin of the apple is especially sensitive to light and the results obtained are said to be more satisfactory than with photographic prints All too often the fellow who wallows around in the barnyard mire in wet weather is the same fellow who has a straw stack or two rotting in his fields Its odd that such a fellow doesnt see the wisdom of scattering the straw in the barn yard and feed lot getting rid of the mud and at the same time manufacturing a lot of val uable fertilizer which the average farm is mightily in need of Those who are suggesting seriously that our children and grandchildren may lack for the food wherewith to nourish their bodies have not taken stock of the fact that at present but one acre out of six is under tillage in the United States and that this acre is producing but half a normal crop of wheat onethird of a normal crop of corn of cotton less than a half crop and potatoes but onehalf The dry spell which has prevailed in many of the north central states greatly reducing the efficiency of the pastures is not bearing so heavily upon the fellows who have silos and who are able to supplement the short pastures with a good ration of silage secured last fall Thousands of other stock feeders and dairymen ought to have this economical safeguard against periods of drought It would be sim ply a matter of foresight and good management

Term Succeeds by FightingI Corporations and Appealing to the People Directly Governor Walter Roscoe Stubbs who has been renominated by the Republican voters of Kansas has had a short career in politics compared with most leaders It is only seven years since he began to interest him self at all actively in public affairs and now he seems assured of a second hisIFor it is no secret that the gav ernors ambition Is to succeed Senator Charles Curtis whose term expires in March 1913 and whose successor will be chosen two years hence Stubbs is red headed like that other Insurgent leader of Kansas Repub licans Victor Murdock Red hair means energy and Stubbs is brimful of energy Oddly enough he comes of Quaker stock His parents who tired in Richmond Ind when he was born were very poor also they were mem bers of the Society of Friends Proved Himself Fighter- A fighting Quaker is proverbially a bad man to run against And Stubbs has proved to his opponents that he can fight out of pure love of fighting if for nothing else in politics His desire to do things Is so great that one can only wonder whether the chamber of the dignified senate could contain him in one of his crusading moods Now fiftytwo years old the gov ernor is wealthy as a result of many years of hard work as a contractor mostly in railroad building Thus he has an intimate acquaintance with one feature of railroad affairs the cost of new lines During his political cam paigns Stubbs has been charged with ingratitude to the hand that fed him for he has risen in politics chiefly as an antirailroad man But he has al ways answered that he had nothing to do with the railroads except to build a good many miles of them at a fair profitStubbs is an open fighter and always hits straight from the shoulder or disdains to hit at all He has no hesita tion about taking the whole people into his confidence when he has a com plaint against the Standard Oil company or some other corporation Not an Orator But As a speechmaker he is not gifted His voice is harsh his language is fre quently ungrammatical and his ges tures are awkward But he can ask more questions and express more fer vid thoughts about things in general when on the stump than probably any other man in political life And he gets down to factsor allegations and proceeds to hammer at his enemies with sledgehammer strokes The weakness of Stubbs as politi cians look upon him is that he has no machine He is essentially a one man power He insists that everybody in the employ of the state shall do a fair days work for his pay and he has cut off graft in numerous places The sup port he gets is from the people not the politicians primarily It is true many strong politicians aided him in the fight for renomination but he did not win their support through promises or favors They took to Stubbs because of his strength and Stubbs mayor may not reward them Stubbs opponent in the fight just ended was Thomas Wagstaff a bright energetic and shrewd young lawyer of Independence Wagstaff made a good fight pleading for harmonious support of President Taft the policies of the administration and traditional Repub licanism But Stubbs made a better fight He stripped off his coat and vest on a hot day while campaigning and talked to the voters in a heart to heart way that brought confidence enthusiasm and votes He has hardly any book learn ing and one secret of his strength may bel that he does not pretend to have any He has been however very good friend to the states educa tional institutions and appreciates edu cation Began In Legislature Stubbs began his political career in 1903 by going to the legislature He didnt know anything about lawmaking at the start of course and the War ty managers saw to it that he was not placed on any important committees That annoyed Stubbs and he began to fight He took the reform side of everything and made a name on the antipass question and other issues that were considered burning by the farm ers He fought the ring that controlled state politics and soon found himself a- Tarsus power Has Electric Lights Tarsus the ancient city in Asig Ml nor where the Apostle Paul was born J now

confronted by claims from 746 women who demanded from the exsultans successor compensation to the tune of 800000 The government refused to pay this sum but proposed that the chamber should sanction an arrangement by- which the women of the harem for a period of ten years should receive monthly pensions ranging from 425 to 2125 which even in frugal Turkey is a pretty meager subsistence The Turkish deputies however still thought the ministry overgenerous Some of the Extreme Left shouted Why dont you get them married off whereupon the finance minister retort ed that the women were lone and homeless widows and according to Turkish custom could not expect to at tract husbands among the faithful theIto their native provinces to be cared for locally Here the members for the provinces concerned jumped up and pointed out indignantly that the families of these women had received good money for them by selling them to Yildiz kiosk and that the local authorities could not now be

church at Jerseyville Ill Recently he visited a newspaper office there to see bow a daily is got out The bright and breezy way in which city reporters write up an event makes people read the story through with interest from start to finish com mented Mr Jordan I have often thought that if ministers in their ser mon writing would try to adopt newspaper methods to the extent of turning out more interesting and vivid copy they would make more impression upon their congregations and attract more to the services- If certain events related in the Bible had been covered by men like the newspaper reporter of today how eagerly we would read them I believe many persons now repelled by the style of the King James version would read such an account if it ex istedwith the keenest Interest and pleasure I ANCIENTS FEARED DOG DAYS Sacrificed Canines to Sirius toi Ward Off Sultry Dangers In ancient times it was customary at the beginning orVdog days to sac rifice a brown dog to appease the

wedding gift from an anonymous person a complete set of false limbs a set of artificial teeth and a couple of glass eyes to procure all of which the sarcastic donor must of course have put him self to considerable expense Accompanying these strange presents was a note wherein the hope was expressed that by reason of the recipients many falls while following the hounds some or all of these substitutes might ulti mately prove of use As the bride groom had incurred much enmity while holding office under his government it was supposed that these gifts came from a disappointed office seeker A well known American writer received from a rival man of letters a scrap book wherein were carefully pasted and indexed many hundreds of clippings containing adverse criticisms touching the formers work and a popular artist was presented with a set of elementary works upon self instruc tion in drawing and painting Some years ago in the west an elderly crusty merchant on espousing a spinster of mature age was presented by an undertaker with two coffins for himself and wife a letter which ac companied these ghastly gifts stating that they would unlike most of the other offerings received be sure to be of service Naturally enough the bridegroom resented this singular if useful gift and it took all the efforts of mutual friends to prevent a breach of the peace Like vexation was no doubt felt by an infirm octogenarian in Ohio who wedded a pleasure loving woman more than fifty years his junior The pres ent in this case was a large brass cage intended so the inevitable accom panying

a very learned Chinese for the Westminster Gazette of how this much contested form of suicide is accomplished In swallowing gold it is not loose gold leaf or gold dust that is swal lowed but a solid lump of gold or even a gold ring weighing about half an ounce Gold is not at any time of a corrupting nature but when a lump of it is swallowed and gets Into the bowel it falls on account of Its

but hardly had the door closed on the last patient when the old man burst forth- I thought you told me that you were not doing anything Why if I had helped twentyfive people in a month as much as you have in one morning I would thank God my life counted for something There isnt any money In it though explained the son somewhat abashed Money the old man shout ed still scornfully Money What is money

north of the river Darling and is about 300 miles long and 100 broad consisting of sandy dunes or ridges Its want of trees except along the creeks gives the country a sterile ap pearance These ridges were probably formed by the joint effect of winds and a gradually retiring sea Accord ing to Captain Sturt these waters were gradually lost by evaporation or carried to some undiscovered sea The only

MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP ii All Right In Theory but Breaks Down In Practice Theoretically there is so much in municipal ownership of public utilities that the practical carrying out of its attractive features appears simple and of no serious moment and for a municipality to take over and run water lights sewerage and even transportation appeals to taxpayers and the trade is made without the first assur since that the conduct of these proper lies will be along practical and bush JGSS lines It is the failure to assure the prac tical that works the evil for municipal ownership is a general ownership and a general ownership results too easily In its being no special business of any citizen or taxpayer to look into or ins quire after the conduct of the proper ties under control This leaves the management to a few who soon find that they have only themselves to account to that people are too busy to demand accountings and taxpayers accept any kind of report just so there is the appearance of all being right and light water sewerage etc are given It Is this indifference and neglect on the part of taxpayers to take note of municipal affairs which make munic Ipal ownership of public utilities a hazardous and expensive matter The theory of municipal ownership with Its great saving to each taxpayer tho extra service given and the great prof its resulting can all be placed in fig tires beforehand but it is a failure un less the taxpayers shall give earnest and serious heed to the conduct of these public utilities for unless this is done they will wake up some day with

Cannot Fool All of the People Ml of the Time The recent condemnation as unfit for further service of a number of gas and electric light points and the closing down of some of them at a dead loss to the taxpayers should serve as a warning to other cities for this is the fate that Is likely to overtake all such plants in the long run For the first year or two when no expensive repairs are needed and the plant Is thor oughly up to date it ought not to bo difficult to make a good showing For a few years longer the bad bookkeep ing and Inadequate reports that are unfortunately the rule rather than the exception may blind the citizens to the deterioration of the plant and to r Its Increasing losses But the day of reckoning Inevitably comes when breakdown bad service or demand for new equipment that cannot masquerade as extensions causes an Investigation and then It becomes evident that the plant has been a losing prop osition ialmost from the start No plant should be accepted as

to catcli vf3fiittikAfiilTliOAdam j LI i arUJ fA MENACE 111 Milto Professor Fessenden Sounds a Note of Warning p Cities Not Adapted to Operate Busi ness EnterprisesLoss of Capital Through New Developments The Danger a Real One It is becoming more and more gen orally recognized that undertakings founded on the great public needs of the highly organized society of modern times should be controlled by society Whether having the power it is ad visable that municipalities should actually engage in such undertakings or whether they should merely maintain their control as it bas been aptly put through their powers as a landlord is a matter which win be determined bj the municipalities from political social and economic as well as engineering the question from its en gineering side alone it Is found that from the very essential nature of the matter only a certain class of engineer- Ing undertakings can be efficiently and properly operated by states or municipalities It is very important that this limitation should be recognized as where the limitation has been overstepped it has resulted in heavy finan cial losses to the governing bodies Immediately concerned It has seriously checked development in engineering lines and these results have in conse quence afforded a strong argument to those opposed to municipal operation of public utilities It is true hat under state or munici pal operation some minor and sporadic developments may be expected but nothing of a general or important char acter Important developments generally come only from the hands of individuals or bodies responsible only to themselves and provided with the in centive of a large profit The elimina tion of self responsibility and incentive would inevitably produce a condition in industrial and scientific development analogous to the dark ages It is to be noted that this conclusion Is derived from engineering considera tions alone and does not include any consideration from the political social or economic side There may it Is conceivable be political social and economic considerations which tend to affect this limitation Considered how ever from the engineering standpoint alone there can be no question but that the field of state and municipal operation should be limited to under takings in which there Is no immediate prospect of or need for Improved methodA which is always associated with the ownership of Industrial undertakings Is that the capital Invested may be lost through the development of new and cheaper methods and processes The extent to which indus trial machinery of certain types is ren dered obsolete by new improvements is not always realized The writer Is personally acquainted with one street car railroad plant In which the entire electrical equipment of the power house was thrown out and replaced with improved machinery four times within a period of ten years The Carnegie company is reported correctly it is believed to have scrapped on one occasion more than 1000000 worth of new machinery which bad never been used This has already become a serious matter for many municipalities which have engaged In undertakings lying outside of the engineering limits defined above Many of these municipalities installed plants for the produc tion of electric light at a time prior to the advent of important improvements In generating and distributing electric ity and as these municipalities in com mon with most municipalities made no proper allowance for depreciation the capital Invested has been practically lost and in addition the cost of elec tric light to the consumer Is much higher than it is in other places equip ped with later and more economical types of machinery In addition heavy necesIcreased This has reacted upon the municipalities since the heavy rates have caused manufacturers to move away to other towns and this again has still further Increased the burden upon those remaining There are already indications that a considerable number of these municipalities which have engaged in impropertinder takings are entering upon a period of financial r ticultyR A Fessenden Aa a Socialist Sees It Every recognized authority on Socialist economics from Marx to Ferrl has been and is an avowed economic evolutionist They all without excep tion recognize that public ownership under capitalism must come before the full Socialist programme can meet with realizationWhen Socialist party shall succeed to power in municipality state or nation it will fall heir to the holdings of its capitalist predecessors Every dollars worth of property that we can wrest from private capitalism through public ownership wlll fall into the hands of the Socialist party without struggle upon its succession to

home in Russell county I cannot forget the pleasure expressing through the News how I enjoy ed myself while there A hope of seventeen long years has wrought many changes Most of the old land marks have pass ed over the river into that dis tant country that no traveler returns When a boy I often wondered who would take the places of uncle Job Kearns Tom Collins Jack Haynes Geo Moore Wm Payne JB R David son D B Barger and many others It seemed to my childish mind that those places could never be filled Yet those places are filled but I fear we young men who never occupy their places do not repre sent that degree of virture and stalwart manhood aswas sd forcibly demonstrrted in the lives of our forefathers I t was indeed a great pleasure to meet my boyhood friends with whom I was raised andwent to school whent a barefooted boy They are no longer boys but bearded men now burdened with the cares and responcibilities of life One of my greatest pleas ures was the privilege of meet ing my fathers old friends two ReeseIthree miles southwest of James town The latters farm joins my fathers old homestead In spite of adversity these men are gradually climbing the hill o f success They have reared large families and are now calmly pass ing the evening of life in the consciousness of having perform ed their duty well Also it was a pleasure indeed to meet Mr AI G Bernard a lifelong iendof my fathers at whose home I was s o hospitably treated I sincerely wish that every Texian had the pleasure of visiting the Winfrey Hotel at Russell Springs and Harvey Holts Hotel at Jamestown I venture the as sertion that if the people of Texas knew about the excellency of the table fare and the invalids knew about the curative proper ties of the water then Russell Springs would become a health resort second to none in the southland Holts Hotel a t Jamestown might be called a repeater for to go theire once only makes one want to go again Here is to you Rash if you ever come my way I will be
