This well known old gentleman passed away rather suddenly last Tuesday morning, although he was on the streets the day before and talked with a number of his friends or greeted them as he passed by. He was in his eightieth year, however, and was growing quite feeble with years. Rev. Rippetoe was formerly a Presbyterian minister, and for several years has been drawing a pension of S300 per annum from that denomination as a retired preacher. He owned a little property in this city, but how much is not generally known. He entered into a second marriage two years ago and his second wife survives him.

The first thing on the program was a song and drill, participated in by forty or fifty children, who deligted the audience by the correctness of their steps and sweet voices. Following this were solos, readings, duets and quatetts, all the performers acquitting themselves in a most admirable manner, each one deserving special mention, hut as there were so many who took part, it would take up too much space to particularize, hence we conclude that all who were on the program can rest assured that their efforts were highly appreciated. It is not often that an entertain ment is given in Columbia resulting in such universal expression of praise. Miss Rose Hyde lias the honor of arranging for this evening of enjoj'-men- t, class particiher Sunday-Schoo- l pating, also many of her outside friends.

When the early infectation is very severe, prime off and destroy the affected leaves, destroy all tobacco stubble as soon as the crop is harvested to prevent the breeding of a hibernating generation; clean up and destroy all trash in and around fields and tobacco barns; do not follow potatoes by tobacco if the infectation of tobacco has been more severe in such cases than were different rotation was followed: grow potatoes as far as possible from tobacco fields In Cuba and the United States the splitworm is known on tobacco as a only. Only the older tobacco leaves are affectad unless the infestation is very severe; and in these the lower leaves, grayish, irregular blotches are produced, which later turn brown and become fragile so that the tobacco is unfit for wrappers. At Clarksville, Teun , where the infectation is very slight, the larva in most cases begins work in the "ruffles" leaf-miner The Louisville dailies gives the following account of the killing near Campbellsville, which occurred on the fith inst: Coroner Lyle Mathews was killed and Deputy Coroner Charles Hayes was wounded by Clevius and William Murray, two demented brothers in that county. During the. attack a sister of the Murray's was shot in the hand. The two brothers and their sister were arrested. Coroner Mathews, Deputy Coroner Hays, John Peterson, Jailer, Garfield Disney and another man went to the Murray's home to dispossess them, as tht-ifarm had recently been sold to settle an estate. The Murrays has warned the officers that they would be shot if they approached the farm, but Coroner Mathews and his men refused to heed the warning. As they appeared in front of the Murray house a number of shots were fired and Mathews fell mortally wounded Hays was seriously wounded, but his companions managed to get him out of harm's way, and the Murrays and their sister then were taken. Mathews was inducted into office only one month ago. He leaves a wife and three children. r Dr. Casfey MaKes Report on Deaths of Stock in Other Kentucky. Part of Dr. II. L. Casey, Assistant Veterin ary in the Department of Agriculture has re turned to Danville from a trip to Adair county where he went at the direction of State Commissioner of Agriculture, J. W. Newman, to investigate the death of eleven horses within thirty-sihours from defective ensilage Dr. Casey found that the ensilage in question had developed ptomaine poison from mouldy ccrn and that this was the cause of death to the stock. Several cases have been reported of cattle having succuraed to the same kind of poisoning. Dr. Casey said he would recommend that farmers use more care in feeding ensilage to horses, and that if fed at all it should be used with an added ration such as a good hay. However, it would be better not to feed it to x ped. settler in this county andjis respected by all who knew him.

Ouradvance in temperance and honesty must be like the boys crawfish all hindways. In the language of a ward, "why this thusly?" Before the war distillers made all their malt by drying corn that had been sprouted, and having it ground on a mill. Then it required from 7 to 10 days for the beer to ferment enough for distilling. Now the law compels them to use malt prepared by the goverment. which ferments in about 36 hours, and the law compels the distiller to pay taxes according to the amount of malt furnished, and the capacity of his stills, and in some cases it is so high they cannot make it, and are compelled to fight the devil with fire, and where there is a deficiency of poisonous principles in the malt furnished by uncle Samuel it is supplied by the dis tiller. Then the retailer gets it when it becomes more dope than whiskey, which causes much of the morbid craving we so often see manifested. Under the old plan, the whisky contained more songs than fights now, the fights predominate.

System Urged Pothunter's Gun Is nating Middleman Captured. Cases In One Year. Madison, Wis. The workmen's com- pensation act is bejjiuuiu to show the beneficial results of the amendment of 1913 in reversing the manner of aiding employees affected by it. During one month there v. ere 901 industrial accidents in Wisconsin, not including number railroad accidents. Of this or SS per cent, were under compensation. According to reports made to the industrial commission, the number of accidents is increasing, but this only apparently is true. The fact is that more accidents are reported than formerly. In the case of shop ac cidents, wjiich heretofore have been quite accurately reported, a decrease is shown. Because of the federal liability act applying to accidents in interstate commerce the larger railroads have not come under the act. During one month TiGU accident cases Tvere settled under the compensation law. This was at the rate of C.3(i cases a year. The cost per case on the average, excluding medical and hospital charges, was SG2.S9. Applying the same cost per case to the CtioO cases, it amounts to $417,374 as the total cost a year for indemnity. To this must be added the estimated cost of medical and hospital charges, mak ing G20,0G1 as the probable cost of compensation for SS per cent of the industrial accidents in Wisconsin for 1913. Indemnity is paid only in cases where disability extends beyond the seventh day, while medical attendance applies to all accidents where such services are needed. The cost here given accounts only for money actually paid to or on behalf of the injured workmen and does not include overhead cost of insurance. The amount paid to injured workmen is easily more than three times as much as they received in any one year under the old law. But this does not by any means show that it cost the employers three times as much as under the old system. Under tbatsystem the injured workmen did not receive more than 23 per cent of the amount paid by employers, while under the compensation act at least 7.1 per cent of the amouut paid by the employers goes directly to the men 791. ! Norfolk. Va. Warned by Charles E. Brewster, game expert of the department of agriculture in charge of game preservation, that Virginia is rapidly declining from its position as a "sportsman's paradise," a bill has been prepared which if enacted into law will exert stringent protection over all migratory birds. Tidewater Virginia has been the meeting place for sportsmen of the Down toward the Dismal north. swamp and along the section in the extreme southeastern part of the state there are scores of shooting clubs, many of them owned by New York men who make this section their headquarters for weeks at a time duriir- -' the duck season. It is not at this clas of sportsmen that the new laws will ..M.I be aimed, but at pothunters and others who are depleting the game supply for market purposes. j Mr. Brewster exhibited a pothunt er's gun which was captured between Washington and Alexandria. It is eight feet six inches long, with a one and inch bore, and weighs more 100 pounds. The gun used half than a pound of giant powder and one ami a half pounds of double B shot This charge was in the gun when it was captured. The man from whom the gun was taken, Mr. Brewster said, was fined $30 for having the gun in his possession.

It is impossible to enforce your present laws because you cannot get a local warden to testifv against his neighbor. Virginia is one of four states that have not adopted the game warden system, and when one considers that Virginia once was the most prolific producer of all sorts of wild game this statement becomes more astounding.

Fighting desperately for his mistress, a pet bulldog prevented two masked burglars from plundering the home of Charles Stang. at Elrama, near here. Both of the men were badly bitten about the legs and the dog sustained severe injuries in his desperate defense of Mrs. Stang. whom the burglars had bound and gagged. Although the marauders finally overcame the animal, the noise made in the conflict reached the ears ot neighbors, and the burglars were forced to flee before they were able to pack up the articles they had gathered. When rescued Mrs. Stang was unconscious, but later revived. SENTENCED TO SIMPLE LIFE. Two Year Term as a Hermit the Punishment of a Forger. San Jose. Cal. Frank E.

SEND YOUR SUBSCffil Resolutions providing for changes in the conditious of rural life in this country, which It was stated would decrease the burdens and increase the opportunities of the farmer and his family, were adopted at the third annual meeting of the committee of agricultural development and education of the American Bankers' association. Vocational training in the public schools, plans to make the marketing of farm products easier and more profitable and federal aid to make farm demonstration work more general throughout the country were among the things urged. The resolutions in part follow: "Our committee, being especially concerned with agriculture and instruction in that line in the country schools, realizes that it needs and must have the largest measure of aid to the end that the country boys and girls may be placed on an equal footing with, those in town. Therefore we urge both state and federal aid in this direction. "As farm demonstration work through local or country demonstrators has proved to be the most practical and effective means of improving framing methods and as the government has contributed thousands of dollars toward such work in certain states and little or nothing in others, we indorse and earnestly urge legislation on the part of congress that will provide generous federal aid in all the states for such work."
