The following is a list of premiums awarded, the first named being the H. PREMIUMS AWARDED. The Boney Woman. a brief but correct account of what we have heard concerning a lady by the name of Coffey, who once lived in Russell county, Ky.. and was known as the. Boney Woman on account of having had a great many unnatural bones taken from her body. Some 60 years ago her condition was discussed a great deal by the citizens of this community and as well as we remember no one seemed to doubt the truth of what we will relate. Being first attacked with severe pains in some part of her system there would appear an enlargement under the skin then a bone would protrude, sometimes they would come through without assistance if not, the Doctor would make an incission and extract them. In some casses they would introduce forceps and crush them before extracting the pieces. This I have learned from Mr. ITerschel Willis, whose father. Judge Ned Willis, lived about one mile from the home of John Fields near where Joppa now is. It seems that the boney woman, was removed from Russell county to Adair to be treated by Drs. Samuel and Elijah Fields, who will be remembered by the older citizens of Columbia as skillful physicians. Mr. Willis tells me that he has heard his mother t frequently speak of visiting her and on one occasion saw the Doctors extract a bone from under her tongue which resembled the thigh bone of a small chicken, and she examined it before it lost the natural warmth of the body. 1 have heard my mother speak of hearing Dr. Milton Wolford, who also treated the Coffey lady, give pretty nearly the same account of her as given by Mrs. Willis. Doctors came from Philadelphia to see this wonderful freak of nature. She recovered and became the mother of one or more children. Since writing the foregoing we have consulted Aunt Lizzie, widow of the late John J. Epperson, a lady of superior intelligence whose mind is remarkably clear for "one S5 years of age. On being asked if she remembered to have ever heard of what was once known as the boney woman, yes, yes, she replied, 1 visited the home of John Fields with my mother to see her, and she was a boney woman. We saw scars all around her neck, on her breast and arms. They told us" the bones came out all over her body, 1 asked her if there were many of these bone, 0 yes she replied hands full of them extending both hands. When asked if they seemed to be broken bones she said all that I saw seemed to be whole bones. There was an enlargement on her neck at that time where a bone seemed to be coming to the surface. Mrs. Epperson does not remember anything more concerning her after this visit but said that she appeared to be about 30 years of age at that time. Verily truth may appear stranger than fiction.

The conduct of the immense number of poeple who attended the Fair speaks well for- - Adair county. It was well attended from the beginning to the end, and on Thursday the crowd was variously estimated from three to five thousand. During the four days not a man was arrested for drunkenness, nor disturbing the peace in any manner There was one fight on the grounds which took place between two negro women, but jealously brought it about. We noted, perhaps, as many as three men during the four days who were under the influence of liquor, but they were orderly. Late Friday afternoon, after the fair closed, two men were arristed for drunkenness. A rain came in the afternoon Friday, laying the dust, making it more pleasant for those who attended the Fair to reach their respective homes. Important Notice.

Early in my married life I de. cided that there was more work here than I could possibly do, so I began studying which to do and which not to do. I finally decided it did not make much difference just so the most things were done, and I kept my temper, not that I was in the habit of losing it often, but that I would not allow the duties of home to make me fretful.

Tuberculosis has diminished the number of men who leave the prison alive and scores of others have gone out simply wrecks. The New York World says editorially, this; "Is it any wonder," asks a life inmate of Sing Sing Prison writing to the World, "that a man goes forth to redeem himself sadly handicapped by knowing that the dreaded white plague has a firm hold on him." This is no irresponsible charge from one smarting under just correction.

The prison is taking care of 50 per cent, more inmates than it can decently Its cells are foul, its drainage insufficient, its cation and equipment so bad that bulletin 458, Just issued by Secretary Wilson. The bulletin states that seven kinds of finches, commonly known as the grosbeak, summer within our boundaries. A majority of these are good friends of the farmer and deserve to be widely known In order that their services may be appreciated. The grossbeaks are easily distinguished from other finches by their stout form, bright plumage, massive bills and melodious voices. They live largely in agricultural regions and secure most of their food about "cultivated lands. They perform invaluable service in destroying many of our worst insect pests. The rose breasted species is a great destroyer of the potato bug. He breeds over Kansas and the mountains of Tennessee. The investigations of the department show that the bird Is fond of green peas, but Invariably consumes enough Injurious insects to more than offset the damage. He has become famous for his preying on the Colorado potato beetle, and no less h than of the total food it consumes has been proved to be the potato beetle. It attacks the cucumber beetle. It has proved an active enemy of the Rocky mountain locust during that insect's ruinous invasions, and among the other pest it consumes are the spring and fall cankerworms, orchard and forest tent caterpillars, tussock, gypsy and brown tail moths, plum army worm and cinch bug. In fact, it attacks the worst enemies of agriculture. The cardinal or redbird species ranges from southern Mexico, Lower California and Arizona north to Iowa and Ontario and east to the Atlantic coast. They are permanent residents, spending the summer and winter in the same locality. It has been claimed that they pull sprouting grain, but no evidence of damage to either grain or other crops is shown from over 500 examinations. On the contrary, they do much good. They feed on locusts, periodical cicada, the Colorado potato beetle, tbe rose chafer, cotton worm. one-tentcur-culio, following story by James B. Duncan and a picture that shows the result of painstaking effort. A bookcase large enough to bold 100 books is an adornment to any household, and the youngster who Is clever enough to gather in some nice bits of pine wood and then tackle the tool box in the barn will be sure to have something extra from mother In his Christmas stocking. Here are the rules to follow: In the use of all edge tools, if you would avoid cracks and splitting, be patient and do not attempt to remove wood too rapidly, although the tools should be always kept with perfectly sharp edges. There Is much marking out to do, and as this must be accurately done a good sharp pencil should always be at hand. In sandpapering it is best to wrap the paper around a block, as the result is more uniform than when the paper is supported by the hand alone. The three shelves, which are identical in every particular, should be smoothly finished, giving particulai attention to the ends, as these are visible through the side strips. In order to fit around the four corners of the uprights, the four corners of these must be notched out. These uprights, after having been cut to length, smoothly finished and the corners rubbed down very lightly with sandpaper, should have the location of the shelves marked on them and then have the holes bored for the screws. From half inch wood cut out four brackets of such a length as to fit closely between the two uprights of each end Six little side strips, measuring by one inch, are required, which should be flat on top and pointed at their ends. In assembling make a hole in the corner of each shelf and carefully try one-four- th The Adair County News njx xin XIN Is Going To The nix XIN XIN Cash Basis And that Everybody who xK xK is Indebted for xK NJX the K x XIN NJX XIN NIX XIN X(N XIN NIX Tin1 Paper is Urged to Pay up within the next Few Weeks xK NtX IN NT IN NIX In K in x MX IN XXN The System will be Better for the Subscriber and also the Publisher We do not want to Lose a Single Subscriber, but want to Add Many New Names to our al ready Large List XK M NIX p NIX xK xK xK M IN IN NIX xK NIX XIN xK NIX IN NIX XiN NIX 7Tn NIX IN M XIN K xK NJX XIN IN Nf xK NtX J -- 1 I ft- xfc xK NjX IN XIN NIX XIN 7fc NJX XIN NtX IN MX XIN" IN NJX XIN m ENtt iAJY Q tUZ SHELVES.

SILO IN THE BARN. J g ! i Tit-Bit- s. Slightest Inequality Causes Silt Deposits and Clogs the Current. A matter of prime importance in laying tile for drainage of wet laud is that of getting an even grade or, fall to the ditch, says Professor M. E. Sher-wi- n in the Progressive Farmer and Gazette. If the tile in the bottom forms a waving line or change from a given grade to a grade less steep, there may always be expected an accumulation of silt due ro the less rapid flow of water within the tile which will drain. Silt basins may be put in to admit of cleaning out this material at intervals, but just as far as possible the deposit of it should be prevented by getting au even grade so that there is no tendency for accumulation. This even grade may be obtained by the use of a very simple piece of apparatus, one which any farmer can easily make and use. Take a piece of 1 by 0 inch pine' board, A, sixteen feet long. Fasten securely to the ends of this two pieces, B B, each nine feet long, and have them meet above the middle of the piece A. The joint at C may be made by lapping the ends, or the ends may be cut slanting so that they fit up ngainst each other, being held by a small strip nailed across on either side. A fourth strip. D. should be fastened as indicated to B B, two inches above board A. A plumb bob will now be hung from a hook at the joint C by a piece of fine iron or copper wire so that it will hang within six inches of the ground. Now get the piece A level (this is importanti and mark the place on D where the wire hangs. Block one end of A up from the floor one-hainch by putting under it a piece of wood of this thickness and mark again on D where the wire bangs. It will not hang where it did before, but nearer the lower end. Take the block out and place under the other end, again marking on D where it hangs. Repeat this operation with a block one and one-hainches thick and with blocks lf lf Then You Have a Combination That Defies All Weather Happenings.

When the bob swings one, two or three spaces either way we have a, grade of one-hainch, one inch or one and f inches respectively in sixteen feet. By placing this in the bottom of the ditch we can tell how much the grade is at any place, and by moving it we can tell whether or not our grade is uui-- ' form all the way. If not uniform we can make it so by scraping off the higher places. It Is necessary that the bottom of the board A be a straight end. The scale is marked on the board D so that it will .not be liable to become covered with dirt as if placed on the board A. A plumb bob gives a greater accuracy than a carpenter's level or other level placed on one of the boards and is also adapted for more varied use. This piece of apparatus is as occurate. when carefully made, as any surveyor's level and can be used to. advantage either with or without a surveyor's level for getting the desired grade in a drain.

One of the open secrets of feeding horses for shows and .fairs is to give them plenty of fresh milk, regardless of the age of the animal. Ta-gllon- i, VTiiiTTf The Hum of the Hive. Give your bees plenty of good food for winter. Leave no honey or loose comb open around the apiary under any circumstances. The bee when out foraging never acts on the offensive always on the defensive. Beeswax Is always in and the wise beekeepers save every scrap of it Two drones cost as much to raise as three workers, and after they are raised they keep on eating, while the workers labor for you. Never extract honey before at least of the comb Is sealed or capped over; otherwise the honey Is not ripe enough and will ferment A special bee cellar in which nothing else Is kept is certainly desirable, but many beekeepers cannot afford this and yet can well spare room In a good house cellar. Bees will produce more extracted, honey to the hive than comb honey, yet the higher price that comb honey will bring makes the Income derived from either hive about the same. good-demantwo-thirds Cheers For the Glass Hen.

A child with a serious ailment needs a doctor, it is true, but in the majority of instances, as any doctor knows, the child suffers from some intestinal trouble, usually constipation. There is no sense in givingit a pill or a remedy containing an opiate, nor is flushing of the bowels to be always recommended.

Wh-what They Cost From a Few Cents to Thousands of Dollars Each. differUncle Sam has twenty-eigh- t ent kinds of mail bags in service, and they range in cost from 22 cents to $2,156 each. There are mail pouches for almost every conceivable use, and you can ship almost anything that comes within the postal regulations with a minimum of loss and breakage, says Harper's Weekly. Probably the most peculiar mail bag is the one arranged for carrying bees. Sending bees by mail was a difficult operation before the "bee bag" was adopted. Usually the bees arrived at their destination dead or so exhausted that they were of little use. Now these little honey makers can be shipped by mail several thousand miles in the "bee bag" without suffering and can obtain air and a good supply of food during their transit. Mail bags are made of various materials. The cheapest are of cotton and the most costly of leather. Those used on fast expresses are with metal so that they can be Hung from fast moving trains without damage. Even then these bags, or "catcher pouches," do not last much more than a year and a half, while some of the cotton bags used for the work will remain in service upward of ten years. In parts of the west, where the mail must be carried for many miles on horseback, special pouches are in use for slinging over the animal's flanks. In the far frozen north special bags are made for sled transportation, and in the cities a bag In use for pneumatic tube service is made of a composition called "leatheroid." The ordinary cotton mail bags are woven so' closely that they are practically waterproof, and in the weave there are thirteen stripes of blue. Each country marks its own mail pouches in some individual way. so that if one gets lost in a far country its ownership can be readily detected. Nearly Co.000,000 mail bags are used each year by the whole country, and as they are being worn out all the time the supply has to be kept up. There are mail bag hospitals, where tens of thousands of them go every week. One such mail bag hospital repairs upward of 5.000 a day. These crippled bags are in all sorts of dilapidated conditions. A railroad wreck may injure several hundreds or thousands, and these must all go to the hospital before entering active life again. Christmas Is responsible for much damage to the mail bags, owing to the bard service they get, and immediately after the midwinter holiday season several hundred thousand bags go to the hospitals. Mail bags are the most traveled of all articles in use today. They are constantly moving, and it would be impossible to estimate the number of miles a bag ten years old has traveled.

EDUCATED GRftDYVILLe, KY C. D. Crenshaw SURGEON VETERINARY FARMERS. Railroad King Says United States Can Never Have Oversupply of Them. Few men in the world know more about farming as a wealth producer than does James J. Hill, the railroad king; hence this extract from an article of his In the Yale (college) News Is well worth perusal. "It seems probable to me," writes Mr. Hill, "that there are a good many hundred university graduates In this country every year who would be better off if they had shaped their studies with a view to agricultural Industry and taken their diploma straight to the farm. "There is not and never will be any oversupply of educated farmers. "At the same time the man with a university education, supplemented by just such practical instruction as he would feel essential to any other occupation, is certain of success on the farm in proportion to his ability and industry. "I do not think of any other occupation of which these sweeping assertions can be made. I do not know of any in which it is more possible to continue in connection with the mam business of earning a living than enrichment and enlargement of the mind, which is the best gift of university life and its proper though seldom realized continuation after the university has been left behind.

The can or barrel is fitted with a loose cover which permits the flies t enter. At the top of the cover is an opening leading to a wire screen fly trap, and it is a peculiar fact that most of the files entering the can in search of food will choose to make their exit at the top of the can and thus go to their death in the trap.

Few persons realize to what extent fungous troubles are robbing the fruit grower and farmer of the profits of his labor. Spray. In the absence of a heavy fruit yield in the peach orchard pruning should be done to insure new growth of wood for future fruiting. Remember that there is no fertilizer for the garden that compares with well rotted barnyard manure. Application may be made any time during the fall, even if the ground is not to be plowed until late. All flowers are kept in bloom much longer and the flowers are larger if not allowed to form seeds. Pinch off every flower as soon as it begins to fade. This is especially true of sweet peas and pansies.

Investigations by the United States geological surrey of the erosion of numerous drainage basins of the United States show that the surface of the country is being removed at the average rate of about an inch in 760 years. Though this amount seems trivial when spread over the surface of the country. It becomes stupendous when considered as a total or even in separate drainage basins. The Mississippi river, for instance, carries annually to the sea 130,400,000 tons of dissolved matter and 340,500.000 tons of suspended matter, and of this total the Ohio river carries 83.350,000 tons and the Missouri river contributes more than twice as much. The Colorado river, which has built up for itself a vast delta, brings down more suspended matter than any other river in the United States, delivering annually 387 tons for each square mile of its drainage basin or a total of 100.740,000 tons. The rivers of the United Stales carry to tidewater every year 270,000.000 tons of dissolved matter and 513,000,-00- 0 tons of suspended matter. This total of 783,000,000 tons represents more than 350.000.000 cubic yards of rock or G10.000.000 cubic yards of surface soil.
