C, In past years horses have died by the thousands in Texas, Iowa, Kansas, and Nebraska from a disease affecting the nervous system, popularly known as blind staggers or forage poisoning. 'The Department of Agriculture has received urgent requests for help against this disease from 15 different states, and as a result it is now publishing a bulletin containing definite instructions for combating this disease. the hay was eliminated the disease ceased. Other horses in the vicinity not fed upon this hay failed to contract this disease. Later some of the moldy bales were opened and exposed to the sun for three or four weeks. After this the hay was fed to horses without producing any ill effect. Forage poisoning, therefore, seems not to be an infection but rather what is ' that called ' ' 'auto-intoxicatio- n' is,, it is due to certain chemical poisons or toxins formed by the activity of internal organs. These poisons may be present when the forage is taken into the body or The states that appealed to the may be formed in the stomach.-ThDepartment of Agriculture for nature of this poison is still assistance include the following: unknown. e Colorado, Maryland, North Mis- Ne- CHARACTERISTIC SYMPTOMS OF Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, 3issouri, Oregon, Kentucky, THIS DISEASE. braska, South Carolina, W.

The vision is impaired, which results in the staggering gait that gives the disease Its The bulletin takes notice of the fact that additional deaths have undoubtedly been due to the use of fake "cures" sold by un scrupulous persons. It is reported that in Nebraska "blackleg vaccine" was used on at least 1,600 unaftected horses, nearly 1,500 of which are said to have died as a direct result. Investigators have practically established that this horse dis? ease can be controlled effectively only by a total change of feed and forage. It is quite obvious that there is a direct connection between the green forage, exposed pasturage and newly cut hay or fodder which the horses eat, and thi3 Cerebro-spinas the disease is known to scientists. In fact, eating of such forage when contaminated is undoubtedly the most impor tant cause. Over 95 per cent ot cases of this disease in Kansas nd Nebraska during the oubreak 1912 were maintained under al popular name. Certain muscles of the neck and flanks are cramped, and there is a grinding of the teeth. Sometimes the an imal has pains as though it were afflicted with colic. The animal will walk strangely if in an open space, and will try to push through any obstacle it encount ers. In the stable he will press his head against the stall or rest it on the manger. Sometimes he will crowd into a corner. The temperature at the beginning of the disease ranges from 103 to 107 degrees F. but within 24 hours the temperature falls and eventually becomes subnormal. The animal is often down on the second or third day, and may or may not get up when urged. Death usually occurs in from four to eight days, although death may follow within tep hours of the first symptoms, while chronic cases have been known to last for three weeks.

Miss Guinie Morrison, Dear Cousin: I take great pleasure in trying to write you a few lines. We are well and getting along fine and I hope that these few lines will find you all the same. How are all my old friends and relations getting along out there? Who has died and who are still living? I am now living in Canada on my homestead. I just moved in here this fall from Minnesota. I have built me a house and have four acres of ground cleared. It is not so far back from the line as I thought I would have to go. It is only twelve miles to the United States line. I am well pleased with the country and we have neighbors real close by. It is sure a fine place for hunting, bince I arrived up to the present time, which is about four months, I have killed thirty-fiv- e deer, two moose, two bears, and two wolf. Now ask the boys how that is for liunring in old Kentucky. Now you may guess that I don't have to buy very much meat. In regard to the land I the present methods are worse have only studied one part of the subject, and have ignored its relations to other conditions. Of course we all admit that there are ample room for improvements in the present methods, but they will have to be shaped by some few years experience and along with other changing conditions. No county, state, or nation can rise above its leaders. So long as some of the leaders advocate ree HQuors we w not make much progress m theentire elimination of liquors. Kentucky's liquor products for 1909 were valued at $44,360,000, this being 21.7 per cent of the total of the entire country. This is an im- mense amount, but were there no restrictions on the 'distillation, it would probably have been more People should not condemn the entire law just because it has some bad provisions These bad provisions will gradually be perfected by careful thinking and experience. We should not be so as to take the weakest points as a criterion by which to judge the entire; but it seems to be natural with people to do this. If one church or other organization of any kind, wish to criticise another, it will always judge it by the weakest members instead of the whole self-conceit- ed Go's. Ad Temperance. Elmer Dalton's Reply to organization. When I hear, or read of people advocating free liquors, I think it would be appropriate for them to condescend and ask for wisdom, as did Solomon, when he asked for wisdom to know how to judge his people.

Jim Burns, told the following yarn: "Mates. I've een marvels on salt water, but the biggest marvel I ever see was ou land. I'd been left in a hospital at Marseilles, and when I got well I shipped in the brigantine Northern Light, bound for New Orleans. But I wasn't fated to git to that port, for we was driven ashore by a sou'easter and every soul lost Jxcept myself. Bein' washed overboard.

She had just poured some grog dowu my throat from a bottle and was watchin to see if it would bring me out."

Something similar happened recently ia raris to Betsy Baker of South Dakota. Betsy, who hadn't much idea of proprieties except such as she had learned in Dakota, wentj abroad all by herself and. rather liking Nice, spent a good deal of time there. She feR in with some very nice persons and some who were not very nice. They were all pretty much the same to Betsy at least, they appeared to be for she seemed to have no power of discrimination betweeu classes. Two young Parisians. Jacques Gau-tiand Edmond Villiers, comparing notes, discovered that they had both proposed to Miss Baker and had been turned down. Whether or not they had seen the "Lady of Lyons" played and taken their cue from it doesn't appear, but they concluded to foist a spurious nobleman on Betsy. They selected a croupier at a gambling house who hud found his employment on account of a very distinguished appearance and a mellifluous voice, the latter bein? advantageous in calling upon players to make their bets and the winning numbers. They introduced him to Bet sy as Count Charboulier, a member of one of the oldest families in France. It is quite possible that had Betsy been fancy free the croupier might have deceived her as to his real position and won her; but. unfortunately for tho plan, she was already pledged toJackllowIand. a young New Yorker, who had taken a fancy to ranching and bad spent much of his time on his property in the neighborhood of Betsy's home in Dakota. He had fallea desperately in love with her. and, while aware of the fact that she was not of the conventional type of girl to whaei he had been accustomed in the east, he was only too happy when she consented to marry him. She therefore refused the croupier, and since he kail nothing to gain by persistence and must have a living he went over ta Monte Carlo, where he had been employed before being introduced to Betsy, and resumed his calling. Howland joined his fiancee at Nice, and the two made a trip to Monte Carlo, where they saw the bogus count presiding at the gaming table. Betsy recognized him at once and told br lover of the trick that bad been played on her by the Messrs.

That made his rounds of the sugar bush with pails suspended from a neck yoke to empty the brimming troughs of sap and convey them to the barrels at the fire it all came back to him so forcibly that he seemed to be working in a dream. He had known Nellie Tompkins since childhood. The two farmhouses stood close together, and the children had been Zeb and Nell to each other until he had become his father's "hired man" and she had put on long dresses. The old folks had looked upon it as a matter of course that the young couple ' would net married in due time. It was only after the girl had been sent away to school and her letters to Zeb had been few and far between that he awoke to the fear of losing her. Nell Tompkins at eighteen was a good looking, attractive idrl. and Zeb realized that education and society would improve her still mon. Other young men would be attracted, and he would stand no show. As Zeb reached the camp and emptied his buckets of sap into the barrels he lingered and thought of more Tecent sorrows. Nell Tompkins had returned from school two weeks before on a vacation. ITe had hastened over to the farmhouse In his working clothes to welcome her. and plainly she had been shocked. There was no warmth in her handshake, no love in her eyes. Even when he reappeared a night or two later in his Sunday best she had called him Mr. Taylor and had "refused to remember how he had carried her on his back over mudholes and boosted her over fences. A change had come to blast all his hopes, and en his road home he made up his mind to face it like a man. While he mended the line fence between the two farms next morning he raised his "voice in song so that Nell Tompkins might realize that ho was not taking her conduct to heart, but lii voice sounded like a crow's. When he met Farmer Tompkins he made a great pretense of being jolly, and he started a report that he was "stuck" on Abigail Spooner. Thus Zeb Taylor had tried to males himself believe that he was gettins the host of it. Night had come in the sugar bush. Zel) had eaten a cold supper while the sap in the pan boiled and foamed and later on had cut up the wood to be used through the hours of darkness. Then he sat down on a lo, r" smoke and figure out how many pah ol sirup would be the result of that run of sap. He intended to follow the sirup to the "sugar off" process and count up the pounds of sugar, but his thoughts insensibly drifted away to Nell Tompkins, and for a long ten minuter he was oblivious of his surrounding. Then he was suddenly called to life by the hoot of an owl. He could hav suppressed the cold shivers inside of two minutes had not the hoot of the bird been followed by the scream of a The sugar bush was a mile away from any house, and the voice of a woman in the dark woods weakened Zeb's knees and brought his heart into his throat He was shaking with alarm when the owl hooted again, a hoot full of the direst peril, and again it was followed by the scream of a worn:::! whose life was menaced. Zeb stopped only to grab up a club, and then he made a rush into the darkness. He had only lifty feet to go before discovering Nell Tompkins leaning up against the trunk of a tree. "You you here!" gasped Zub as he came to a halt. and. oh, Zeb. the bear the hear!" she exclaimed as she held out her arms to him. "What bear? Where? When?" "He's just roared out twice, and you you- ""Yes, I heard him roar, but don't you he afraid." said Zeb as he put his arm around her and gently walked her to the fire. The arm still encircled her as they sat down on the log together, and he asked: "Nell, did you start for anywhere and get lost?" "I I don't know," she half sobbed. "1 heard you were making sugar down here all alone and that you were going to sugar off' tonight.' "Not quite so soon." "And I thought thought" "What did you think, Nell?" "I thought if I came down you'd give me some maple wax on a white chip and that I would say that I was sorry if I hurt your feelings the other night" "And you got lost in the woods?" queried Zeb as his heart began to melt "I I guess so. It was awfully dark." "And a bear growled at you?" "Such awful growls! Oh, Zeb. 1 was so glad to see you! I might have been eaten alive!" Say. Nell, you are sorry. I'm "Y-ye- s. "Y-e-- s. For a Washington Party. There are so many lovely things to use as decorations and souvenirs that it is a pleasure to give a Washington birthday party. Games for the occasion are numerous. The "historical game" is lots of fun. Arrange some of vauce by pictures or articles some of the Revolutionary events. For in stance, a few carpet tacks on a package of tea would represent "tax on tea." A tea table arranged with cups of tea and a sign, "This Tea Came From Boston." would stand for "the Boston tea party."

Washington's birth is recorded in the family Bible as having taken place on "ye 11th day of February. 1732." This was before the adoption of the modern calendar by England, and this day was observed by Wash ington as his birthday until his twen tieth year. The first known public celebration of Washington's birthday was on Feb. 11. 17S4. The old style date was still adhered to. This was during the lifetime of the first presi1 dent and completed his year. fifty-secoiu- Likewise the Substantial Trimmings That Wont With Them. While he was attache of the British embassy in Washington the late Henry Labouchere, when a young man, turned up in New York one day hungry and penniless. At noon, with his usual reckless daring, he entered a Broadway Muldoon's and ordered a modest meal. But he had no idea how he would pay for this meal. Perhaps he would leave his hat or boots in pledge for it As he pondered the matter he noticed that the waiters, who were staring at him oddly, were Were the waiters all Irishmen. aware of his lack of funds? His luncheon seemed strangely long in coming. But just then a waiter bent over him and whispered "I beg pardon, sir. but are you the patriot Meagher?" Now. Meagher, Labouchere knew, had aided Smith O'Brien in his Irish rising, had been deported to Australia and had escaped thence to New York. The ready young man. in answer to the waiter's question, put his forefinger upon his lip. "Hush." he murmured. And he looked around the room cautiously. It was at once felt that Labouchere was the patriot Meagher. And so the choicest wines were set before him, and. in place of the modest chop he had ordered, a luncheon of nine or ten elaborate courses was brought on. At the end, lighting one of the establishment's finest cigars, Labouchere demanded his bill. His waiter smiled, retired and soon came back with a big, handsome man the proprietor himself. The proprietor, bending over the youth, said earnestly "From one like you. a sufferer in the good cause, I can take no money. It has been a privilege to serve you, sir. Permit a brother patriot to shake you by the hand." And Labouchere shook bands with the proprietor and with the dozen waiters and stalked forth into the cold world with the stern, sad, but indomitable look which it seemed to him that an exiled patriot should wear. chop-houses-one How to be Certain of Prejudice Is a hard thing to overcome, of thousands of reliable people liffers from yours, prejudice then your menace and you ought to ay it aside. This is said in the interest of people suffering from chronic constipation, and it is worthy of their ittention. In the opinion of legions of reliable American people the most stubborn constipation imaginable can be cured by a brief use of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. You may not have heard of it before, but do not doubt its merits on that account, or because it has not been olatantly advertised. It has sold very successfully on word of mouth recommendation.

The old innu knew that if he loft his fortune to his daughter she would either spend the most of it or give it away. He willed it to her ou condition that she marry Wingate. The only way Mildred could inherit without fulfilling this condition was that Wingate should refuse to marry her. In this event the fortune would belong to Mildred. Mildred loved Edgar Corneal and, even if she had not. would rather have married an ogre than Wingate. The problem was how to force him to release her. which was the only way by which she could inherit her property. She treated him scornfully, but did not secure any response. Wingate bore It without retort. By the terms of the will if Mildred did not marry him within two years he was to hold the property in trust so long as he lived, to have the income for himself. One day Mildred disappeared. When Wingate learned of this move he was disquieted. Lie feared some game, but could think of no way by which she could secure her fortune. What he most desired was that she would withhold her consent to marry him till the two years' grace had elapsed, after which he would enjoy the income of the property and manage the business so long as he lived. The will read "in case the said Samuel Wingate shall refuse to marry my daughter Mildred Winterfield. at any time within the said two years,' etc. Wingate read this over and considered the matter safe. The will did not say how he was to refuse, but this made no difference. He would not refuse in any form Wingate had no desire to marry Mil dred Winterfield. Indeed, he had nothing to gain by a marriage with her, for in that case she would inherit the property nnd t make it unpleasant for him. He had seen her only once, when she was about fifteen years old. an awkward girl, who was changing to womanhood. At the time of her father's death she was a fine looking woman, with golden hair, fair complexion and dark brown eyes. One day a young woman called at Wingate's office and applied for a position as typewriter and stenographer There were no vacancies, and she was refused. A few days later Wingate . received a note signed Elizabeth asking him if he would favor her with a call since she had something to This retell him to his advantage. quest, taken with certain glances Miss Darrow had given him. made him suspicious that she had designs upon him.
