Winfrey's hip was broken and the fracture was discovered by Drs. Russell and Flowers, who were called in the case, did Dr. W. R. Grissom an injustice, but not intentionally. We did not know that Dr. Grissom was in the case. He was the one who announced that the patient's hip was broken, in his judgment, and it was at his suggestion that the other physicians were called in consultation. Dr. Grissom is not seeking notoriety, but he desires the public to know the facts. The article was also in error when it stated that Mr. Winfrey's limb was put in plaster paris. A splint was used. During the months of October atd November we will send the Louisville Times one year and the Adair County News one year for $3.50.

It also is richer in protein, which is an important thing in its favor relative to the production of milk and flesh.

When fed as hay, clover has lost much of its nutritive, volatille elements through abras-urit loses many of its leaves, which are the richest parts or the plant, and, lastly, it is no more a succulent plant.

BUCKLEN & CO., philidelphia. deners are preparing to make war on the cutworm and other pests of the kind. Caterpillars, In their various forms, were unusually destructive last summer in all parts of the country. They seemed to be getting the start of land owners in corn and cotton fields as well as In orchards and gardens. The diculty in fighting the cutworm lies chiefly in the fact that it operates extensively in fields and hides In the ground. Its operations cover such a wide territory and its migrations are so rapid that ordinary spraying processes are not effective. This caterpillar is identical with the army worm and probably the same as the cotton worm. In habits and formation it is Identical, though rather larger in southern localities than in the northern lake region. When a farmer knows in the .spring that there are cutworms or army worms in his fields he should adopt vigorous measures. The extra work Involved is cheaper than replanting his crops. A second plowing of the land is helpful, the last to be as near seeding time as possible. All methods of stirring the soil as summer warmth comes on are beneficial. The plow-tear-s up the nesting places, throws the insects out where birds may get at them and createst a general disturbance. This extra tillage is good for the land and will go a long way toward exterminating the pests. In connection with the work of plowing and cultivating It will pay to use a preparation made on the basis of one pound of Paris green, thirty pounds of bran and two quarts of molasses. Moisten the bran with water before mixing. This may be manufactured in larger lots if needed. It .Is to be spread thinly about the field. If placed around a garden, orchard or field It may serve to exclude all caterpillars. Kerosene emulsion is also recommended. Where any crop has been damaged by the caterpillar pest It Is a good policy to sow lslke. This is a profitable product, almost equal to cotton or corn, when cost is considered, and it is of great value to the soil. Another good plan is to sow part of the affected ground to rape and allow a drove of hogs to forage on it. A rotation of crops, with an occasional application of the preparation describ ed, will rid a farm of cutworms and similar creeping pests. The cankerworra Is best known as a pest of apple and cherry orchards, but it is even more destructive to elms Modern methods require frequent spraying with arsenical poisons as a protection of fruit against the codling moth, and this hasthe incidental ef feet of killing canker worms. The San Jose scale can be destroyed by the use of one of the lime ami sulphur mixtures, which may be purchased ready made or brought into solution by boiling the raw materials together as follows: Fifteen pounds of lime, fifteen pounds of sulphur and fifty gallons of soft water. For fifty gallons of the spray heat twelve gallons of water in ft four gallon iron kettle, mixing in a sepai,uteve$sel fifteen pounds of sulphur with enough water to form a Rlin paste. Add this sulphur to the water In the kettle and bring the mixture to a temperature just below boil lug Then add fifteen pounds of beFt mmp lime, keeping cold water at liiTihl to use as the mixture threatens to boil over. After the lime is fully slaked, boil for forty minutes with almost constant stirring. Then strain into n fifty gallou tank and fill with warm water. Codling moth, attacking apple and other fruit trees, should be treated with the bordeaux mixture, which can be purchased ready for use or made up as follows: Copper sulphate (blue vitriol), four pounds; quicklime (not air slaked), four pounds; water to make fifty gallons. Dissolve the copper sulphate by putting it In a bag of cheesecloth and hanging this in a vessel holding at least four gallons, so that it is just covered by water. Use an earthen or wooden vessel. Slake the lime by addition of a small quantity of water and when slaked cover freely with water and stir. Strain tbp milk of lime thus made into the copper sulphate. Pour more water over the remaining lime and stir the strain into the other until all lime but stone lumps Is taken out The bordeaux mixture Is effective in treating asparagus rust, cabbage worm, mildew, rot and parasites on grapes, early blight, scab and Colorado beetle on potatoes, leaf blight and insects on muskmelons and watermelons, worms on tomatoes, raspberries and blackberries, slugs and Jeaf blight on roses, leaf spot on strawberries, rot on fruit trees and nearly all Insect pests and fungous diseases. farmers and gar- if they have to sleep in damp forget that what she wanted wants to go a step further and pens or draughts. was an automobile. skin him.

The habit some hens have of eating the eggs as they lie In the nest Is very annoying to the owner. This bad habit Is usually caused by overcrowding, lack of exercise and the use of nests that are too low to !' -- round and toe light. The habit ran found among a flock that is on ' o range or that is given proper I . ing and a well balanced ration. It is sometimes caused by feeding too much grain, when the hens eat the eggs in an effort to obtain meat food. As a rule, the hen first acquires . taste for eggs by pecking at a soft shelled egg or one that has been broken in the nest It Is hard to cure a hen of this habit once she has acquired a taste for tbG eggs. The best thing to do Is to sell her or eat her. If you wish to try breaking the bird of the habit the most successful methods are either to use a number of china eggs or "loaded eggs" In your nest where the bird will be sure to find them. After several unsuccessful attacks on these eggs the hen will probably become discouraged and leave the rest of them alone. The most effective way of preventing hens from acquiring the habit is to feed a balanced ration and compel plenty of exercise, to build the nests dark and about two feet from the floor, and construct them so that there Is no danger of the eggs being scratched out on the floor and broken.

Our Statute books are burdened with imperfect, uncertain and vicious laws, made usually by men who never saw inside a law book, or by men seeking their own selfish interest, without knowledge of, or regard for the needs and rights of the people. I have been a practicing lawyer for more than 12 years, and for 4 years was County Attorney of Adair county. As a lawyer I am presumed to know the Constitution and understand the fundamental principles of law, and my experience has made me familiar more or less with every law on the State Book, and has given me opportunity to observe their defects. My experience as County Attorney has made me to see and feel the injustice of our system of assessment and taxation, which places most of the burden of taxation on the farmer and the man of limited means. I favor amending these laws so as to make taxation equal and uniform, that no man may bear more that his just part of the burden.

You must elect men qualified to care for your interests. Men who can not be managed by political bosses, the State Board of health, the Whiskey or the Rail Road Lobby. Elect men whom you would be willing to employ to look after your most important private business, where questions of law are involved.

I favor legislation d the sanctity of the ballot against corruption and fraud that will protect and of every form.

He said it was a private prescription and he would do them a favor and get some for them. Bottles were brought, plain and fancy. Some even brought milk bottles to get a sufficient quantity. Many paid $5 and $10 a bottle for the new restorer. Then the officials began vigorous work upon their scalps. It was not until some weeks after that the secret leaked out they had been rubbing salt and water on their heads, wftile the Joker had received more than enough to pay for his handsome wig, which Is now the admiration of many social functions and which he wears with equanimity and dignity.

By feeding some laxative forage like alfalfa or millet as a part of the ration while on the stalks the cattle are less likely to develop any of the symptoms. So far as i know there is no medical treatment, but a laxative Is helpful in the earliest stages of the trouble If is well to bear in mind that a great many cases develop late in the fall or early in the winter during the first cold, stormy rains.

The best way to dry a cow is to place her on dry feed giving only dry timothy hay and corn stover with a very small amount of ground corn if necessary for several days. The cow should be milked only occasionally to relieve the pressure In the udder and on these occasions she should not be milked dry. As a rule, this treatment will cause any except a very persistent cow to go dry.

In raising 300 bushels per acre make the rows three feet apart. Place the seed pieces eighteen to twenty inches apart and don't take quite so much pains in cutting seed. One ton of the best commercial fertilizer is not usually too much per acre. I find it a good method to sow the fertlizer with the planter before dropping the seed. Then it is mixed with the soil. After the plant is up a little fertilizer can be used on it, but it should be brushed from the plant with a broom or in some similar manner.

The Democrats of the Sixteenth Senatorial district are fortunate in being: able to present to the electorate of this district, as their y candidate for a seat in the Senate,, such an eminent Sawyer, scholar and gentleman as the Hon. J. 0. Ewing, of Burkes-villKen-tack- e. years ago, Jesse Owen Ewing. the subject of this .sketch, was burn on a fi.r.1. .. Cumberland county, Ky., i n which county he has resided continuously ever since. He was reared on a farm, and attended the public schools until near manhood when he attended Normal Schools and Colleges, teaching between teims, until he received a good, substantial literary education. Having taught in the public schools several terms, where he made an enviable reputation as a teacher, he was nomi-aate- d d by the Democrats of county as their candidate for County School Superintendent in the year, 1890. As twas predicted, Ewing proved to lbe a popular candidate, and defeated his Republican opponent by several hundred majority in Republican coun-id this As an officer, and in the of the school affairs of the county, he was eminently rsuccessful, and popular with the whole people. Having thus shown himself worthy of the fullest confidence of the people, and having won their highest esteem by &is upright conduct, excellent methods as a school officer, and ifor his fair and impartial generally, he could have ad a second term without even the asking. But having studied flaw during his term of office as School Superintendent, in the of, and under the direction lawyar and of that .gentleman, Judge M. 0. Allen, (lately deceased. Mr. Ewing recused a second term as County ."School Superintendent, and entered into a partnership with Judge Allen for the practice of liis chosen profession. The partnership of Allen & Ewing, one of ihe most successful in southern Kentucky, lasted until the death of its senior member, Judge AlFor len, in the spring of 1911. over 20 years Mr. Ewing has oeen a close student of law, and praccareful and pains-takin- g titioner, until he now ranks with the most proficient of his profession. His advice, and services at the bar, are now sought by a large clientage, and as a practitioner he has few superiors. Mr. Ewing has often measured steel ith the most famous lawyers of the country, and in the great majority of the cases he has borne the trophies from the battle-Forty-si- x --- -- Cum-berlan- -- rock-ribbe- y. deal-sing- s, of-iic- e pre-emine- nt Ewing has been, so far, one of contiual,liss and happiness, unity of purpose and thought, shining as a guiding star to younger generations. As a lawyer Mr. Ewing is one of the most successful practitioners of the Kentucky Bar, and his brilliancy of mind, intellect ual attainments, and upright for him a character, future of usefulness for his country, and honors for, himself. As a citizen he is loyal to his people, standing for all that is pure and beat in huh.e-iiibLty and government. As a friend, he is loyal and true a friend under any and all circumstances, a friend who can be depended upon he is a helper in time of need, and in every sense a friend, inded. In the opinion of the writer, J. 0. Ewing possesses many of the elements of statesmanship, combined with all the attributes of a gentleman. He is a friend to the common people, as well as a product of the common people, who have aided greatly in making him what he is; and, if elected to the Kentucky Senate, he will be a champion of the people's rights. The platform of principles upon which he goes before the people, and submits his candidacy, is a most admirable one, every plank of which is in the interest of economic government. The plank favoring the revision of the revenue system of this State should especially appeal to the people of this district' who are, no doubt, paying much more than their just proportion of the State government. Personally, J. 0. Ewing is a man of polished manners and fine address, and while, as aforesaid, he is country-breand his life, so far, has been spent among country people, still he could, with just as much ease and eloquence, address the Supreme Court of the United States, as a jury of Cumberland county farmers.
