Mr. Jo Sandusky, who has been dangerously ill at his home, in Bradfordsviile, is reported better, and on the road to recovery. was Lamentable Death. A dispatch received, by relatives, last Friday morning, from Mayfield, Ky., stated that Prof. G. Wesley Turner, of Adair county, had just died in that city, a victim of the flu. It was a sad message, as the deceased was one of the best young men of this county. He was a son sf Mr. and Mrs, Jo Green Turner, and was born and reared near the Harmony voting precinct. He was a young man of splendid character, and had been religious from his youtti up He was principally educated at Lindsey-Wilsoand since graduating from the institution he has been teaching at different places one year in the Baptist school at Campbellsville. For sometime he had been in his chosen profession at Mayfield. where he stood high in educational circles. About three years ago he was married to Miss Helen Upton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. L. Upton, who at the time resided at Glenville this county. It was a happy union, and bright prospects were before the couple until the young husband was stricken with disease, terminating in his death. His passing has brought sorrow to many relatives and friends in bis e county, and the heart-broke- n wife, mother and fasher have the sympaty of every person who knew the life and character of their departed companion and son. Wesley Turner was in his 31st year, and'he had been a zealous member of the Baptist Church since his youth. The remains reached here about 4 o'clock p. m.

Telegram received from Washington this morning removes the four pound per person per month restriction on purchase of sugar for householders and removes the public eating place' restriction of- the use of only four pounds of sugar to ninety meals. This removal returns sugar to the normal and usual course of trade at a time that insures the free movement of sugar to our people for the Christmas holidays. It follows that in hotels, etc., General Order No. 8 and No. 9 are discontinued and sugar bowls may be returned to the table. Sugar cards and records of retailers are discontinued. Should sugar again become short by reason of the need of feeding Europe, the people will be called upon for strict limitations again. Everyone should remember, however, that the Hoarding Section of the Food Act remains in full force and effect. - E. D. Durham, a leading business man of Yazoo City, Miss., visited his brother, F. H.

And suddenly he remembered Eleanor, and, ashamed and humiliated, and yet strangely elevated, he began to push his way back through the crowd. He turned into the street of the jail. Dead bodies lay everywhere, and already some of the ambulance men were succoring the wounded. Broken guns, rifles, haversacks, all the paraphernalia of battle strewed the streets. The debris of the jail came into view. The sun, dancing above it, indicated, to Mark's astonishment, that hours had passed, and that It was afternoon. Mark felt suddenly sick, he trembled, and with his last reserves of strength he staggered forward. Then he saw Colonel Howard within the orifice in the wall, and Eleanor kneeling beside him, holding a water-bottl- e to his lips. She turned, saw him, and ran to him, folded her arms about his neck and pressed her lips to Ills. CHAPTER XVI. Even as he kissed her in return he saw the startled glance that she cast behind her, and, following it with his eyes, he saw a tall figure in uniform emerge from the recesses of the orifice; and again he stood face to face with Kellerman. Eleanor released him and stood, still clinging to him, at his side, her hand drawn through his arm. The contrast between the two men was extraordinary. Kellerman looked as if he had just stepped into his nnifonn; his gloved hands, his adjusted belt, the creases in his tunic were those of the fashion-platLooking at Mark, he saw a dirty, grimed, almost unrecognizable figure, with uniform that hung "about him in great tatters, blotched and stained with blood.

I liked you. Major Kellerman. I trusted you and I believed in you. When you told me that you were working to get Captain Wallace his recognition I was glad, and proud of you both, and happy.

They gave, and with a cheer the defenders swept on into the main street, Mark leading them. How he fought that day he never knew; long afterward he would see visions of It in sleep, and battle pictures that forever eluded his wakinc consciousness. Round the little village, the key to the day's fortunes, the tide ebbed and flowed. Company after company came up on either side. Now advancing, now driven back, the Americans fought from street to street and back again. Machine guns opened fire from unexpected places, hideous death traps caught the unwary and venturesome, sometimes a street was filled with a jostling mob, too packed to use their steeL tearing at one another with fists and teeth.

Because he himself would wish that But you can't harm him. Something convinces me that all the harm that has come to him has come from you. And it tells me, too, that your power has ended. 'No,' is my answer." "And yours, Mr. Weston?" asked Kellerman, looking at Mark. Mark, unable to reply, pointed toward the opening of the recess. Kellerman turned and strode toward it. Then he turned. "There's one thing more to say," he said. "Your action in dismissing me, Miss Howard, savors of the romantic drama. Your life has been a romantic Ideal-Isone, with a certain in it, due to the circumstances ol your upbringing. It was that I believe, which made you think it your duty to follow your adopted father's unit to the front I think you ought to know who you are. Your father died on the battlefield of Santiago. He was a fugitive from justice. He was the notorious Hampton." Mark uttered a cry. He sprang toward Kellerman, but Kellerman dealt him a blow that sent him stumbling among the bricks. "That's a He, Kellerman!" said quietly. The old Colonel's eyes were wide open. He laid his hands laboriously upon the edge of the brick wall and, with a great effort, raised himself to his feet "That's a lie," he repeated. "It Is no lie, Colonel Howard. You told 'the whole story to Captain Wallace in the hospital tent Never mind how I know. I know." "You damned, dirty spy!" said the old Colonel. "A confession," answered Kellerman blandly. "Your words were strong ones, Colonel Howard. Deny them if you can. You said, 'A thousand years of hell wouldn't atone for that crime.' You said 'it was calculated, coldblooded deliberation.' You said, 'The case against Hampton was absolutely proven. He was to have been hanged as soon as we captured Santiago. He was born rotten. He sold his country to pay his gambling debts.' And you called him by the worst name one man can call another. That was why you tried to persuade Mark Wallace not to adopt Hampton's child. Like father, like daughter."

But why grow soft corn, when a crop of hard corn costs less per bushel? Corn Is planted when the soil Is still cold, and just after the soil has been leached by the winter's rains. Available plant food In the soil is lacking. The reserves in the seed are soon exhausted, and then the plant "hangs fire" makes no growth, remains small, spindling, and sickly until such time as the weather warms up and soil plant food begins to become available. Available plant food, especially available phosphoric acid ant ammonia, when applied In fertilizer have wonderful effect In saving time in getting growth started early in the season. Later on in the summer poorly fertilized corn once again "hangs fire." It waits, and waits, and is eternally slow in ripening its seed. Too often such a crop is caught, still immature, by the first killing frosts of the season. A high available phosphoric acid fertilizer applied at time of planting is a tremendous aid in ripening up the corn quickly and 'surely. hogs and tc-i- t-ii k-i- -t! &&--& i THE WORLD SHORTAGE of LIVE STOCK f L Tobe continued next week. keep on hands a full' atock of coffins, caskets, and robes.

The portion of the American meal made up by this vegetable, alone, consumes over 300,000,000 bushels annually. Intensive methods make it possible to grow crops yielding from 250 to 400 bushels per acre, and at the same time to decrease the cost of raising each I bushel.

POTASH HUNGER OF POTATOES Throughout all of the principal sections of the East there Is growing evidence of the effect of lack of potash on potatoes. First this hunger for potash was made apparent by decreased yields. Virginia, Maine, Tiew Jersey and New York have found that they cannot grow potatoes as well as they could five or six years ago. Potatoes don't set as well, tubers don't fill out, and disease is more common. Potato specialists, who have been studying the matter, say that most of the trouble is due to the lack of potash in the potato fertilizer. They also say that the new diseases of potatoes -which have been so common for the past two years are nothing more than Totash Hunger." The Phoma stem blight, which was eo common In 1918 along the Eastern eaboard, has been definitely- - traced down to malnutrition due to lack of potash. The disease is made apparent by a bronzing of the foliage followed y a premature collapse of the entire potato-growing MORE AND BETTER CORN The average acre yield of corn in three'of the states, has been leading corn-beabout 35 bushels per acre and this on land which has been farmed for scarcely more than two generations, and1 which is naturally of the best. On the other hand, In New England, on land cultivated for well on to two centuries, on soil not of the best, and in a climate rather bleak and harsh, the average has been 42 bushels per acre. It is the consistent and intelligent use of fertilizers which has made the difference possible. In all corn sections yields of from 70 to 100, or even more, bushels per acre are easily possible. Fertilizers not only make possible the production of more corn per acre, but by so doing free land for other uses for more wheat, or more of any other Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, lt cropT' plant i Specialists in Washington eay that remove 'using potash fertilizer will the cause of the trouble, and advise farmers to buy fertilizer containing 2 to 3 per cent of potash for use next year.

All who expect to Use fertilizer next spring should place Ihetr orders not later than November. Wartime - "Conditions make It necessary to order far In advance. yj' -- t ;" '"' Nearly all of the experiment stations have experimented with fertilizer on corn. In Ohio 320 pounds per acre of a complete fertilizer Increased the yield 17 bushels per acre this where no manure was used. At the same station eight tons of manure, containing considerably more ammonia and potash, but no more phosphoric acid than the above fertilizer, produced an increase of 20 bushels of corn per acre. When this manure was supplemented with 320 pounds per acre of acid phosphate, however, the increase In the corn crop has been an additional 12 bushels. This means a total increase ofJ32Jtrasliejsperjwre, produced by manunTand fertilizer. The West Virginia experiment station secured an increase of 47 bushels per acre from tite use 'of 'complete fertilizer aiondt At 'the Pennsylvania experiment station, 650 pounds per acre of a complete fertilizer Increased the corn crop by 18 bushels. Lack of available plant fottd Is the greatest single factor causing low acre yields of corn. It la the function of fertilizer to suppiy this available food. Fertilizer, In connection with good farming practices, will double the acre yield of corn, and thus set free land more than sufiiclent to grow wheat enough for ourselves and tor our allies in Europe. To grow more corn or more wheat we need send to the block not a single head of breeding stock.

As you know every litDehydration Plant Has a Capacity of One Ton of tle bit helps to win the war, and Potato Flour Per Hour that is what we are all here for. All potatoes for the United States army in Europe are shipped dried or dehydrated. A newly Installed dehydration plant at Idaho Falls, Idaho, has passed a successful run in potato flour making. It has a possible capacity of a ton of very fine potato flour per hour. Previous to the war, says the San Francisco Chroncle, this country imported 30,000,000 pounds of potato flour and meal each year, principally from Germany .and Holland. There will h no .more "Made in Germany" IffiTMWflour in America for many years to come. This opens iip a man- ufacturing industry for American po- tato growers. The slogan of the Potato Association of America is for a billion bushels of potatoes in 1919. The forecast of the bureau of crop estimates Indicated for the United States this year 384,453,000 bushels. The yield in the United States for 1917 was 443,000,000 bushels. If potato flour, in the United States only replaced 1 per cent of the wheat flour, it would take 82,450 carloads of toatoes to furnish this supply. Instead of 1 per cent, why not furnish 10 per cent of the potato flour substitute' for wheat? A large amount of potato starch is used in the textile industry. r'M'Illllili"l"l"I"M"l"lll"l"l"l"l' Timely Sayings.
