Sparks' World Famous Shows are billed to exhibit at Campbelllsville Wednesday, Sept. 10, and from the newspaper reports preceding them their exhibition will be worth feoing many miles to witness. Among the many features the show carries is what is claimed to be the largest land animal on earth. It is an elephant said to be three inches taller than Jumbo and a half ton heavier. Some idea of her immense size can be obtained when you consider that she is 11 feet 7 inches tall and weighs over 5 tons. In other words she weighs as much as 10 ordinary horses. Another extraordinary feature with the show is Capt. Wesley's troupe of educated Seals and Sea Lions. These interesting sea animals perform the most seemingly impossible feats; balancing chairs, umbrellas and whirling brands of fire while climbing ladders, walking tight ropes and riding the backs of galloping horses. This feature baffles description and must be seen to be appreciated. Many other wonderful things are to be seen with this mammoth show, and the main performance beneath the big tents wiil present a number of the most marvelous foreign acts of the century.

The most satisfactory remedy for cutworms, which do much damage in garden and orchard, is a homemade material known as poisoned bran mash.. It is prepared as follows: If a large amount is needed mix thoroughly one-hapound of paris green with twenty-fiv- e pounds of dry bran. Then prepare some sweetened water by mixing one quart of cheap molasses or two or three pounds of sugar with two gallons of water. Moisten the poisoned bran with the sweetened water.

Often cutworms cause excessive damage by cutting off newly set tomato plants or cabbage plants that have just been transplanted from seed boxes. Such plants may be rather easily protected by wrapping a small square or strip of paper around the stem when setting them out, so that the stem near the ground will be protected by a cylinder or collar of paper. This paper protector should extend into the ground half an inch and above ground two or three inches. If soft paper is used the collar should make two or three turns around the stem. If land is kept in clean cultivation in late summer, keeping down weeds, especially if it is in a crop such as potatoes or tomatoes in which there is only one plant to considerable area of soil, there will be few eggs laid there by the moths. Circular New Hampshire College and Experiment Station. $ the bran a slightly greenish tinge. Then prepare a pint of sweetened water and moisten the bran with this. Fill a pail with this material and scatter the poisoned bran over the surface of the ground so that small chunks half as big as a walnut or larger will be distributed every foot or two. Do this just before the plants are due to come up. Poultry must be kept away from the garden for a few days. After a week or two or after one or two rains the bits of bran usually disappear sufficiently so that there is little danger There was once a dog who used to go to market with his master every morning. He was always given a cent to buy meat for himself. If the butcher took the money before he gave him the meat the dog would growl and show his teeth. One day the master was called away on business and was gone for several days. On his return he told Romp to bring him his slippers. Romp did not obey, but slunk into a corner, and the slippers could not be found. Some hours later the gentleman went to the postoffice, and Romp went with him. As he passed the market the butcher asked him to step into the store and gave him his slippers. Romp had carried them down one at a time to pay for his meat. A Picnic Stove. In a practical article on "Picnics and Campings," published in the Woman's Home Companion, appears the following: "Picnic cooking. If in inexpert hands, will undoubtedly be better over a stove than an open Ore. But you cannot carry a stove on a picnic or camping expedition, nor need you. A piece of thin sheet iron, thirty inches long by eighteen inches wide, is all the stove you want This lid across two little banks of earth, with the Are between, or two logs with the fire between, forms an excellent stove and not only makes it unnecessary to wait for embers for good cooking since the flames cannot reach the food through the sheet iron but is in itself an excellent griddle for making toast and flap- jacks." Some way a neat farm home with buildings well painted always goes with a good farm and good farming. Does anybody wonder why? $$S$$SSS Turning Alfalfa Into Pork. A Peculiar Animal. One kind of African mice we seldom see or read about is the little elephant shrew. It is barely four inches long, but the trunk and shortened tail combined give it another four or five inches. The fur, though drab Instead of gray. Is otherwise like that of a chinchilla, as also are its large and delicate ears, while both in the formation and the manner of using its legs it reminds one of a new species of miniature kangaroo. It has swift leaping powers. It will tuck up its appendages and, like a ball, roll over and over in a straight line and after a meal, which occurs at very short intervals and consists of several mouthfuls only, quite surprises one by standing stock still, apart only from a gentle quivering of the trunk. At the Kansas experiment BOO station pounds of pork were made from cne ton of alfalfa hay and 770 pounds from an acre of alfalfa pasture. At the Nebraska station hog rations conh sisting of alfalfa hay showed the alfalfa hay worth its weight in cornmeal and superior to the same weight of bran. The Iowa station made pig pork at $3.S4 per 100 pounds and realized 7L1 cents per bushel for corn. With alfalfa and corn, pork cost $2.SS per 100 pounds, and corn returned 8G.G cents per bushel, a difference of 33 3 per cent in favor of alfalfa. one-fourt1-- said, "Will you come and see me.

There was a balmy air coming up from the south, a cloudless blue sky. opening buds, the piping of nest building birds. Strolling down the mall, I met a perambulator, pushed by a negro boy, in which sat a young man of twenty-twor twenty-thre- e years. As be passed' me I noticed a melancholy look on his face which bespoke some great grief. To my surprise, he gave me a glance of recognition. Besides, his features were familiar ro me I turned, and he looked back, "You don't remember me. colonel." he said. "I admit I can't place you." "Not remarkable since you have not seen me since I wore cadet gray, was clean shaven and had my hair cropped. You were teaching me the art of war, which in my case meant how to make a wreck of myself." "You were of that class graduated in advance to take part in the Spanish war?" "I was: Granger Ward Granger." Suddenly it all came back to me. This man had been one of the prominent men in his class, a cadet captain, an excellent student an all round popular man. "My dear boy," I exclaimed, taking his proffered hand. "I remember you perfectly for an honor to your class, and I know by your war record that you are an honor to your country." "A retired honor, with no feet." he said gloomily. A picture flashed before me a "hop" at West Point Granger was a graceful dancer, and I had noticed him especially sailing past me in all the freshness and confidence of youth with a beautiful girl to whom he was engaged to be married. "Let me see." I said musingly. "It seems to me that you and Miss" "Towne?" "Yes. Miss Towne." "We were engaged when I went to Cuba. When I was sent back in this condition" His voice trembled. "Surely sue did not- ""She showed herself a noble girl. It was I who would not consent" "You?" "Yes. I." he went on bitterly. "Do you suppose I would permit a younr girl of twenty to enter upon the care of a man condemned to live a cripple, to witness every day his wrecked hopes, to see him trundled about like this, to turn her course at the very beginning into a channel which must grow darker to the end? Not I. You never taught me that kind of honor, colonel." Though I made no reply, I felt that he was right "Is Miss Towne married?" I asked. "No." I sat down on a wooden bench. The negro went a short distance away, and Granger and I talked for an hour. Then I left him. bidding him goodby, for I had been ordered to a southern post and was to leave the next day. A year later I received an envelope by mail from which I took cards announcing the marriage of Lieutenant Ward Leighton Granger. U. S. A., retired, and Helen Arlino Towne. By the same mail came a letter from the bride: Dear Colpnel B. Ward has asked me to write to you to "confess" what he calls his "shameful retreat" from the position taken by him at the time he last saw you. I bear witness that he maintained that position for a year, during which time I re&olutely fought to carry it both by assault and undermining. Ho says he gave you his reasons, and it only remains for me to give you mine viz. I could not live without him I laid the letter down with a sigh. I was sufficiently experienced to understand the burden this woman had taken on herself and considered her course aud the yielding of her husband a mistake. I wrote a note of encouragement but refrained from expressing any approval of tlie union. Three years later while exchanging stations I passed through New York. I knew I ought to call on Ward Granger and his wife, but dreaded to do so. expecting, even after a few years, to see the effects of what I considered an unfortunate marriage. Nevertheless I called. I was ushered into the library and in a few minutes heard the thump of crutches above, then Granger coming downstairs. Beside him. holding with one hand to a crutch and with the other to the balusters, walked a boy of two years, chattering like a magpie. Mrs. Granger followed, admonishing her sou to be careful and not get in his father's way. I advanced into the hall to meet them and at a glance saw that Granger" was no longer a mental sufferer. His face broke Into a happy smile, while his wife, also smiling, exclaimed: "You thought we'd mada a mistake, colonel, didn't you?" "I mistake I assure you" "A nice letter of congratulation you sent us cold as an icicle!" "Admit, colonel." said the husband, "that if you were on a court martial to try me for a dishonorable surrender you'd convict me." "And you'd convict me," said the wife, "of recklessness and stupidity." "Madam." I replied. "I would sentence any woman for such an act to be shot but in your case I would recommend a pardon and promotion to th fiighest rank." o who could invest a j quarter and get back a dollar and a half would think he had !

France was the territory assigned him, with Paris for his headquarters. He had no sooner opened his salesroom than he was called upon by the representative of a Paris morning paper for an ad. Abner told him that he was not yet ready. The solicitor, taking his reply for a refusal, intimated that if the paper didn't get the ad. It would be to the disadvantage of the enterprise. Abner replied that he came from a land where in journalism the advertising and the newspaper's opinions were kept separate in other words, where newspaper blackmail was unknown. The journal was welcome to "fire away." LOBSTER AND BUTTERFLY.

It is one of the largest and most ferocious of all the dolphin family. It also is known as the grampus. It is characterized as a genus by its large size and the conical and depressed head, devoid of a beak. The back fin is of great length, especially in the males, and the flippers are large and broadly ovate. The teeth are comparatively few In number, varying from ten to thirteen on each side of the Jaw, and are much larger than in any dolphins yet noticed, being often an inch or more in diameter and having an oval section. The coloration is striking, the upper parts and fins being black, while the lower jaw, chest and under parts are whitish. The white area of the under parts does not, however, extend to the flukes, but ends posteriorly In a trident, of which the lateral and shorter prongs extend obliquely upward on the flanks. There is a large white streak above and behind the eye, and frequently at least a purple crescentic area extends across the back behind the fin.

Frofessor Rice of the poultry department of the State College of Agriculture at Cornell university, New York, has a couple of hens of which he may well feel proud. One of these, Cornell Supreme, has laid CCO eggs in a period of three years, the highest sustained production of which he has been able to find any authentic record. These eggs weighed 8G.19 pounds, or more than twenty-fiv- e times the weight of the hen. Another hen. Cornell Surprise, has laid 5(52 eggs in the three year period, a remarkable feature about her performance being that she laid more eggs each successive year, her score for the three years being ISO, 1SG and 19G eggs respectively. The performance of these two hens leads their owner to the conclusion that a hen can sustain a high egg production for a period of at least three years and that such a breed can be developed by selection which will add greatly to the value of the poultry business of the country.

The visitor protested that such weapons were not used in Paris, to which Abner replied that in America no one fought with anything else, and he would fight with the weapon he could handle and none other. When the fighting editor received the news that he must stand up against an American rifle it occurred to him that for that occasion at least he would earn his salary. He was a perfect swordsman and a dead shot with a pistol at short range, but had never fought with rifles. Abner, who had all the so called trickery of the Yankee as well as the fighting proclivities of the Georgian, had sent him word that he'd better make a will, since he proposed to aim straight at his heart and he had never missed, anything with a rifle.

The work, although accepted, was not considered likely to pay extremely well, and consequently a trifling sum was given for it Contrary, however, to Mr. Colburn's expectations, It ran to three editions. The ingenious author of "Vivian Grey," then twenty-tw- o years old, having heard of the circumstances, determined to use it to advantage, and accordingly, having arranged his work for publication, he proceeded to find out the honorable gentleman's fair messenger. This he quickly effected and upon a promise of giving her 20 induced her to be the bearer of hia novel to the same publisher.

But no one ever presumed less on a wide reputation. Affectation was a weakness from which his sense of humor saved him. In bis biography by Mr. W. H.

On his arrival he found the studio door locked. The owner was nowhere to be seen.
