Wilson Chapel Thursday evening by the music and exression classes of that school was one of the very best ever given and much praise has been justly given to both the teachers of those departments, Misses Hewitt and Walker, as well as the pupils who performed their parts so perfectly.

The following young ladies took part in the musical program: Misses Nellie and Grace Huffaker, Alma Mary Chandler, Mallie Moss, Alyce Cann, Goldie English, Christine Nell, Capitola and Clarice Webb, May Feese, Frances Strange, and Mary Harris.

Considerable interest has been aroused in this part of the State over agitation begun at Columbia, Adair county, for a railroad to touch that hustling and prosperous little city and as an outlet for the vast resources of Adair county. Nothing that could be done for Adair would do more toward promoting the business, industrial and farming iuterests of that county and community. Prominent business men of Lincoln have suggested that steps be put on foot looking toward securing the building of a railroad from Columbia, through Adair county, building northeast crossing Casey county and tapping Liberty and on through the Green river valley to McKiuney and thence on to Stanford. It is pointed out that a very rich section would thus be opened up to development, which is now remote from railway transportaNumerous surtion and facilities veys have been made previously of this route and the engineers' reports have always been inost favorable. That the people of Adair caunty are earnest in their desire for railway facilities was demonstrated at a mass meeting held at Columbia late last week. Another Railroad Meeting.

Dozens of people here in town who were among the first to obtain the medicine at the drug stores, are now telling of benefits that have been derived frorcnts use. From all reports, the Root Juice exerts a powerful curative and tonic influence upon the vital organs of the body and has a wonderful puryfying and cleansing action on the blood. Some of those who have tried it say that even the first few doses produce noticeable benefit, sharpen the appetite, create new strength. It relieves indigestion, belching, the formation of gas on the stomach and pains after meals, in a surprising manner and it is declared that its continued use for a short time strengthens and tones the stomach so that indigestion is soon forgotten. Rheumatic sufferers, too, say that the effect of the medicine on sore, swollen, aching limbs and joints is wonderful and that the pain simply seems to vanish. The following extracts from a few of the many recent reports will convey a good idea of the great results that are being obtained by its use in anany cities over the country. F. Abel, Seymour, Ind., "I have used the sediciue with fine results and know of many others it has helped. "Albert Timlick, Cantrall, 111., "I have suffered with stomach trouble two years. Was almost dead one night when I sent for Root Juice. After three or four dose3 I felt much better. It has since worked wonders for me." J. E. St. Louis, Mo. "It is the best medicine I ever used and I have tried many kinds.' Joe Battle, Moultrie, Ga , "I have tried Root Juice and received more benefit than from any medicine I ever used." Other similar reports have come from Carrington, 2f. Dak , Anderson, Ind, Kane, Pa., Chicago, 111., IJarrisburg, Va., Springfield, III., Bellefontain, Ohio, and many other cities in all parts of the United States. Inasmuch as a large bottle holding nearly a pint can now be easily obtained at any of the leading drug stores for only one dollar, it would seem advisable for any suffering person to give it a thorough trial.

Breeders and Feeders Should Be Separated In Winter Quarters. To make the best gains, sheep, when Drought into winter quarters, should be separated into several different flocks. The breeding ewes should be kept separate from the lambs, rams and the feeding flock. Weak, thin ewes should be separately yarded so that they may get their share of the feed. Rams should be kept in lots of ample size so as to allow them plenty of exercise. By taking these precautions and regularly providing the flocks with suitable feed and an abundance of fresh water and by sheltering them in clean, well ventilated quarters success in sheep husbandry is assured, according to Frank Kleinheinz, shepherd of the Wisconsin experiment station flocks. The choice of feed depends to a large extent upon the condition in which the breeding flocks enter winter quarters. Adair County News One Year Each A prominent New York Girl Foils Hold-u- p Man.

In raising hogs cheaply it is necessary to begin with the sows. They must be fed well in order to produce a good litter of strong, vigorous pigs. Oats are a splendid feed. They are a well balanced food. Corn is not suitable. It is too fattening. Also provide plenty of pure water. Exercise is necessary. This can be provided by feeding the oats on a feeding floor, urnal, scattering it thinly. It is not necessary to grind the oats.

Ma her of New Haven, chairman of the state tuberculosis commission. Dr. Maher went to Berlin to attend the recent conference, and his report to Governor Baldwin shows in what respects Connecticut Is remiss. First of all he pleads for a seaside sanitarium. Germany, Dr. Maher says, leads the world in the number and variety of its sanitariums. This is largely due to the fact that half or more of the population is enrolled in sickness and disability insurance companies; hence it Is advantageous to the organizations to cure their tuberculosis patients as soon as possible. American sanitarium equipment compares favorably with that which Dr. Maher saw abroad. The German sanitariums are of brick or stone, while in this state they are entirely of wood.

Always appreciates trade from Adair and Adjoining Counties and is constantly of that it should be nutritious. The ration should be sufficiently bulky on the one hand to fully distend the stomach and other digestive organs, and at the same time there should be enough digestible material to fully meet the requirements of the animal. Practical s experience is reached when about of the total dry matter of the ration Is in the form of roughage and in the form of concentrates. In addition to this an ideal ration should be palatable so that an animal will eat it with relish. While little is known concerning the effect of it is certainly true that of two feeds alike in all others respects the one most readily eaten by the animal will be the more effective. The secretion f milk seems to be intimately connected with" "the water content of the food. The cow needs a large amount of water to drink, Tut aside from this there is a demand for feeds containing a high percentage of water such as green forage, silage, roots, etc. The cow's digestion is kept in much better tone when such feeds , are used, To "Gave an exact balance between the protein and the carbohydrates and fat is not so Important as was once thought; for milk production it is necessary to nave a larger amount of protein than for beef animals, but a dairy ration is now considered fairly satisfactory If the nutritive ration falls anywhere between 1:4.4 and 1:6.5.

A Story That "Old Cush" Used to Tell About Himself. The late Francis W. Cushman was well named the Abraham Lincoln of the Puciflc coast. So man in the house of representatives could command greater attention when he ad- dressed that body than "Old Cush," as he was familiarly called. His wit and humor pervaded every speech, and he seemed to enjoy nothing more than to regale his hearers with experiences wherein the butt of the joke was upon himself. I well remember one cloakroom Etory that to be appreciated in its fullest sense should have been heard from the lips of the man who, like the great emancipator, was tall, lean, lanky and homely. His style was inimitable. The story is as follows: "I do not know how it is with my countrymen in general. Some men have strong ambitions. 1 never had the political ambition that made me desire to be a member of the state legislature or desire to be a governor, but from my earliest boyhood I had a consuming desire to be a member of the great American house of repre centatives. Down the vista of all my dreams I saw arising the great white dome of the capitol of the only true republic on earth, and I followed that .vision from youth to manhood, through Sickness and sorrow and misfortune, Sirith an ambition that was as honorable as it was hopeless. "In the years of my manhood, after pursuing it like a constable on the trail of an absconding debtor, I overtook it. When 1 reached the capitol of my country my hair was a trifle long and my coat not of the latest cut but as I started down that long corridor toward the door of the house Of representatives looming in front ot Jne, I felt, sir, that God's elect were about to come into their own. To bo entirely frank with you, I could feel ;the earth tremble, conscious of the importance of my tread. "But unfortunately when I reached the doorway in the capitol they had a couple of guards stationed there to keep out the profane. One of these fellows grabbed hold of me and said: " 'Stand back!

We may talk of the convenience and pleasure of owning an automobile and they are importantbut its greatest service to the farmer has been in destroying his isolation, says the National Stockman and Farmer. The farmer no longer is limited to one market in the purchase of supplies. Every city or town in- 'side a fifty mile radius is within easy reach. Formerly his only associates were the neighbors of two or three miles in each direcfjjon. Now it is just as easy to spAul Sunday with a "neighbor" in the next county. No longer is his observation limited to one community. It has been widened to a hundred communities in a dozen counties. No one can fail to be impressed by the tremendous influence of this wider vision upon the farm family upon their happiness, their work and their ambitions. ILittleFarmPaul t Bu C. C.

No man is old-young s Special Attnetfn to Eyes Why Farmers Pay More For Money Than Other Men. To Farm and Fireside Judson C Welliver contributes an article show ing how farmers have to pay high rates of interest in this country because they have no system of collective credits such as they have for the benefit of farmers in certain foreign countries. The substitution of community credit for individual credit is what always reduces rates of interest. Cities borrow their money at lower rates of interest than individuals they act as a community. Following is an extract from Mr. article showing the rates of interest farmers pay in this country at the present time: "Recently the department of agricul ture investigated interest rates paid by farmers all over the country.

Twenty colts were purchased, ten grades and ten pure breds. These colts, were divided Into two lots, with live pure breds and five grades in each. For nearly a year the two lots have been fed the same sort of roughage-alfalf- a,, corn fodder and pasture.

These percentages are based upon weight, not volume. One pound of this mixture contains the same digestible elements as one pound of oats. Also from the standpoint of energy value the two feeds are equal pound for pound. Each lot of colts has received the same number of pounds of grain. "The test shows that there is a great chance for saving in feeding," said Dr. C. W. McCampbell, assistant professor of animal husbandry, who has charge of the test "A farmer can better afford to feed the mixed ration with corn at 85 cents a bushel, bran at $30 a ton. ollmeal at $40 a ton and oats at 50 cents a bushel.

The foundation upon which all successful poultry operations rest is constitutional vigor, according to poultry experts of the department of agriculture. Without a high degree of health it is utterly impossible to progress in poultry work, and there is no other place where conditions are so conducive to poultry success as they are on the farm. The farmer has the advantage of having free range for his birds, which means an unlimited supply of bugs, insects, green feed and grit as a food supply Poultry strongly constituted means highly fertile eggs and the production of good, strong chickens Eggs produced from fowls that have free range on the farm hatch better than those from fowls that do not have that advantage. In feeding the farmer has the advantage over other poultrymen. "Where live stock is kept there is a A. A 1 Lloyd-Georg- LIoyd-GeorgeJ- t if 'f "i1 r 1&M& ?.$ jK lewwwy'yCWWjBITKy11 ? j v -- Whittier.
