the wheat prospect was ever unpromising than at the present time in Mercer county There have been so many of what the farmers call wet freeces that in some locali ties the wheat all seems to be dead It is said by horse farmers that 100 acres of good land will maintain 20 mares and colts or 40 yearling colts or 30 twoyear olds or 25 threes the price of good horses it is seen that horse raising alone pays wellA yearling hen will lay more eggs the first season than during any other two years of her existence because she is not so liable to take on fat older hen and good authorities say fat is fatal to the laying of eggs The hog is the mortgage lifter the sheep the farm fertilizer the cow the and a woman not afraid of the work in caring for them will insure prosperi ty on any farm There is much inquiry nowas spring approaches for good draft horses for breeding purpose Our readers are heartily commended to the excellent breeders and importers who advertise such horses in our columns There are none better in this country and in every way can be relied upon warehousemen say there has been a smaller quantity of tobac co seed called for this season than known for many years As the grow ers usually get their supply of seed from the warehousemen this may have its significance and many think a smaller crop will be planted Many are bewailing the heavy in the price of beef and pork The Agricultural Herald of Denver does not see any cause for alarm ItIs an ill wind that blows nobody good As beef and pork advance in price just in that proportion will be the de mand for Belgian hare meat At the same time our poultry fanciers will benefit by the demand for eggs An otherwise pretty good farmer who putting an acre of potatoes in a slipshod sort of a way each year had never been able to get over 50 or 60 bushels to the acre got a pleasing sur prise when he gave his 12 year old boy an acre of land to have what he could raise upon it the boy planting it in potatoes and harvesting 225 bushels The boy first read up on potatoes planted selected seed took good care of the crop and beat the old man all piecesIn young trees start the branches low the trees will grow bet ter the thinning and gathering of the fruit will be more easily done and the cultivation can be as well and cheaply done with the modern Acme or spring tooth harrow and weeder as If the head was higher while the trunk of the tree and the ground under it will be so protected that growth will be so protected that growth will be bet better than if more Homo The weight of the 1000 tobacco crop certainly fooled a number of of us It can be safely estimated that it will be one hundred pounds less to the acre than the 99 crop While in some ca ses it will reach as high as 300 pounds in other places it will be no greater than 50 pounds A fair average can therefore be struck at 100 pounds to the acre The crop of 09 was so very compact and heavy that its weight was actually deceptive the other way One farmer delivering a load of of the 99 crop to a country buy er made a guess that from appear ances there aught to be five hundred pound in the load When it was weighed in however the scale show ed that it weighed fifteen hundred pounds This year when a large wag on load of the new crop Is brought in the guess is double and sometimes even triple that of the actual weight Thus are even the best ihformed de ceived The figures which the plant gave during the summer estimating the Burley crop at 275000000 pounds were all ri ht then but the shortage in weight since has cut that figure fully twenty million pounds Even at that the guess was a good one when the acreage is taken into considera tion The heavy rains of the summer deteriorated the tobaccos growtband maturity in some places particularly in the blue grass sections of Kentucky where the level land so rich and was made to suffer by a su perabundance of rain The hilly coun ties fared better far the very fact that they were hilly I venture the asser tion that by the first of February there will not be much old tobacco so for the rest of the month there will be little remaining to come Tobacco Plant purchased

Sohon the wide awake Superintendent of the Orphans Home was in our midst last week and organized a local board which will act as an auxiliary to Kentucky Orphans Home Since Mr Sehons last visit here in more than sixty destitute chil dren have entered the Home and ma ny of them have been legally adopted This is a work which commends and ought to receive the support of every oitizen in the count We give below the names of officers and various committees with J their respective duties COMMITTEE ON PETITIONS Are to investigate the calls for help and see that the society is not impos ed on as it has been before by persons who were in a condition to care for their children but simply wanted to get rid of them The society is for the benefit of destitute children COMMITTEE ON APPLICATION This committee investigates fami lies wanting children as to their re ligious aud moral standing financial condition character etc If they think the family will take good care of the child give it the benefit of a religious life will send the child to school and treat it as a member of the family and not as a servant they If not reject COUNTY ORGANIZATION COMMITTEE This committee is expected to in troduce the work into every precinct and settlement in the county having at least two good active workers at each place In this way the county can act immediately when there is a destitute child can fill a home that needs a child and can make the work known Make all your members ac tive members as experience has taught us you can get much better results so do not hesitate to ask them to give you a dollar They will do so and will do much better work LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE There are three men on this who will take the work up when the time comes We will have some important matters to present to the State and want all the influence that can possibly be exerted on the lo cal or county representatives and sen ators MEMHEIJSniP COMMITTEE This committee should try to secure all the members it possibly can They will have no trouble in getting nearly every man and woman in Lancasterto give one dollar annually to the desti tute child This is less than two cents a week Make this a strong commit tee and see that they are kept active ly at work This society needs the money and every dollar sent is helps one of Gods homeless waifs the child of the slum or the unfortunate little one born out of wedlock WAYS AND 31 BANS We ask the local board to give at least two entertainments annually for the benefit of the straw berry supper and musicale in the sum mer an oyster supper and candy pull ing in the winter These social help to keep the local board to gether and will create new interest in the work I would sug gest three ladies on this committee This will be a delightful committee to work on and will be of great help to the cause PKESS COMMITTEE This committee should see that the county papers have a standing adver tisement in each paper calling atten tion to the work of both helping the destitute child and the great need of homes for our children The State Superintendent will help this commit tee by sending articles of interest to be published from time to time SUNDAY SCHOOL COMMITTEE We have asked the Sunday schools to help us care for these destitute children under the plea of home mis sion There is no work in Kentucky or in the United States that reaches true mission work like our society The work is under the eye of all It effects every city town and neighbor hood and when appealed to the Sun day schools all respond I have not had a single refusal since I began the work We ask them for ten cents a week and they can send the money as best suits their convenience quarter ly semiannually or annually as they wish Let this committee be compos ed of men and women who will take pleasure in the work and who will or ganize at once CLOTHING COMMITTEE This committee is to see that the children sent from Garrard county have clothing enough for at least a

Exercise The bear pit up on the hill in the Central park menagerie is divided into two sections by a high fence of stout iron bars In one division the polar bears live and in the other the griz zies At the back of the pit there are two caves one in each division That in the grizzlies section is blasted out of the solid rock which rises at the back of the pit to a height of 15 or 20 feet The cave of the polar bears is formed by a broad deep slab of stone placed across over a niche in the rock These caves are in reality simply deep wellsheltered recesses in which the bears lie down for protection fron the heat in summer and from the cold in winter though for that matter the cold does not much trouble them the polars indeed may sometimes in win ter be seen stretched out flat and on the roof of their cave lying down in the snow says the New York SunSunk in the floor of the bear pit near the front is a masonry tank perhaps eight feet long by four wide and two and a half feet deep The fence which divides the pit into two sections like wise divides the tank Thus half the tank is in the polar bears side of the pit and half of it is in the grizzlies The water in it is always kept run ningThere are in the pit two polar bears and two grizzlies The older and larger of the two polars has been here now 15 years He is a big fine bear though he does now and then suffer somewhat from rheumatism and is not so spry as he once was He doesnt like to exert himself very much and does not often bathe in the win ter The younger polar however takes baths all through the winter fine day drop in one comparatively mild and that day the young polar takes a bathAfter the bath the bear needs exer cise and this young bear walks back and forth from the end of the tank blasted out of the rock that rocky side wall comes down pretty nearly to the front of the pit The bars along that side are set in holes drilled in this rock back a little from the edge so that there is a shelf or ledge of rock sloping from the front upward to the back At the point at which the heal strikes it in walking back and forth from the tank this ledge is almost twill the height of the bears shoulder The floor of the pit around the tank is wet with water that the bear has swashed over on it but the bear isnt a particle disturbed by this he isnt a bit afraid of getting his feet wet He starts from the tank and walk over to the Walt only a little distance half a dozen short steps and then he backs down to the tank He goes for ward to the wall again and backs to the tank again and does this forward and back movement over and over again and anybody standing watch bug the bear now is sure to get an that he is getting ready to jump up on the ledge This is really what happens All of a sudden on one of these returns to the rock and with out any acceleration of his speed and apparently without any unusual the bear springs up the face of the rock twice his own height to land securely on the ledge and this with so much of reserve strength and such facility of movement that he seems to scale the rock with perfect ease and as though he could go higher if he wanted to Moreover the bear launches himself and lands in this as tonishing climbing jump with such easy certainty that the movement is noiseless throughout there is no scrap lug or shuffling in it anywhere Lauded on the ledge the hear walks up that narrow sloping protection to the back of the pit swings around there to the left and walks along the the top of the slab that forms the roof of the cave in this anti on to and down the other side on the sloping coping of the ma sonry base in which the liars of the dividing fence are set and back to the floor of the pit and to the tank to take up there again his apparently endless walking forward and bark between tank and wall in a seemingly endless getting ready to jump then he shakes himself like a great dog though not so violently and the spray flies from his white coat and so what with time and exercise and the heat of his body he gradually dries himself off DEATH AROUND THEIR NECKS Cancer of the Throat I Canned by the Hijjli CloseFittini Collars So greatly has cancer of the throat among women increased of late that physicians have been trying to discover the cause Xot long ago a young sales woman employed in one of the stores of Philadelphia was taken to a hospital where her disease was diagnosed as cancer of the throat Eminent specialists who examined the sufferer agreed that the disease had its origin in a choker colar and ex pressed the opinion that 1 the custom of wearing this style of neckwear many similar cases would result says the Chicago Chronicle- A wellknown resident physician in a downtown hospital said the other There is not a particle of doubt that these high collars or chokers as they are called now being worn by many young women are decidedly in jurious They make the wearers susceptible to colds for they interfere with the proper action of the throat muscles Then too the collars act as mufflers and keep the air from the neck making it unusually tender and vulnerable to drafts The drawing tight of the collar around the neck not only causes chafing but produces can cer of a dangerous and usually fatal characterI that this matter should be brought before women so that all due care may be exercised and this habit or fashion of tight high collars and bands that draw the neck in mummy like folds may be discontinued Men wear their collars lose and dr use tight neckbands But nov that women have usurped some of the mas culine fashions they push them to Within my six months ib cumbency at this hospital I have treat ed no less than four cases of cancel of the every case wasdui t9 the high collars worn by women T 11 I I

Interpreted and Exemplified the True Chrl tlnn Spirit What most impressed you at Ober Ammergau was asked of a returned tourist recently It was none of the things that the magazines tell about replied the tourist It was the conduct of the young woman who waited ou our where we lodged Tell me about it said his friend It was Anna Fluenger who took the part of Mary the mother of Je sus The only remarkable thing about it was that she was just as sim ple and unaffected as we might have expected any young woman of the village to be though hers was the part which the young women of Ober Ammergau count worthy a lifes am bition and the greatest honor that can come to one of them in ten years and but once to one Saturday night she served us at table and Sunday morning she served our simple breakfast all as if that in an hour she would be the heroine in that sublime drama I could not help wondering how many American girls would have done so even on so much smaller an occasion as their graduation And did it seem inappropriate asked his friend Xot at all Indeed that was tIle most interesting thing about it It was more than interesting it was a sort of revelation of the spirit of Christian service Would not Mary the mother of Jesus have done the same I could not help thinking that sue would and in much the same way And then I could not help that Christ Himself was among us as one that serveth The best thing 1 got at OberAmer gau was not anything that I saw on the stage It was that simple bition of unaffected Christian service and it helped me toward a truer inter pretation of the true Christian Companion FRAID OF PRAYERS An Old Truth Remarkably Illustrated Dnrlntr a CampMeeting in Vermont The late Rev H L Hastings related this incident of the September camp meeting in 1899 at Fairhaven Vt An aged lady the widow of a clergy man lost her money nearly 200 The place where she lodged a house near the campgrounds was entered by some thievish person or persons and the principal booty carried away was her property All efforts failed to trace the theft and the distressed woman was Ill able to afford the loss the only thing she could do was to pray about it and she prayed through a sleepless night and all the next day in heart if not in words She thought it could not be Gods will that she should be so wronged The following night as she passed out of the evening meeting a woman or some one in womans clothes slipped a small packet into her and disappeared in the crowd was nothing surprising in the act for the dropping of samples and parcels of circulars among the people was an everyday occurrence She carried the packet to her room and on opening it found all her lost money 175 Around it was a strip of paper scrawled over with these words Cant rob widders fraid of prayers The boys pray for us It is several thousand years since the supreme Lawgiver proclaimed Ye shall not afflict any widow or child If thou afflict them in any wise and they cry at all

Dr George Vasey the botanist of the agricultural began his work on the im provement of the forage upply of the United States At that time the hay product of the country amounted to about 25000000 tons per annum In the northeastern states the forage problem was already in the main solved but in the south and in the west there was a deplorable lack of suitable forage plants says Arthur Henry in Ainslees Xew England and New York had brought their grasses and clovers irom Great Britain and owing to general similarity of had found them satisfactory Their use had extended also to the middle west with equal success With the increase of stock raising in the cotton country of che south however it was found that the old and well known forage plants must be replaced by others better suited to the climate During the next decade following the rapid depletion of the wild forage supply of the far west and the establishment of homesteads throughout that region the similar discovery was made that the common forage plants of the east could not withstand the dry climate For many rears the department brought by correspondence information along these two lines and in 1884 collected it in the form of a book The Agricultural Grasses of the United Sates In the year 1888 the lump sum for botanical investiga tions and experiments was increased from 2000 to 2000u anu the estab lishment of forage experiment sta was authorized The principal station established was at Garden City in western Kansas A number of grasses both native and foreign was cultivated at the station without irrigation At the end o the five years lease in 1893 after the va rious species clearly not adapted to the region had been thrown out year by year the experiment resulted in the demonstration that two forage plants Hungarian brome and red Kaffir corn and one grain Jerusalem corn were the crops best suited to cultivation in those portions of the southern great plains where irriga tion was impracticable A few other plants notably Colorado bluestem gave promise of success and their cultivation has since been followed in other portions of the plains The station was an object lesson to thou sands of despairing farmers It showed them that Kaffir corn could produce a good crop when everything else was killed by the drought that Kaffir corn was the equal of maize for fattening hogs and feeding farm stock and that it could be made into good bread Thousands of bushels were distributed among the farmers and they found the grain as on their own farms as at the sta tion At the end of the five years life of the station Kaffir corn was very generally cultivated the shipment fat hogs showed a marked increase and the farmers were making a far more comfortable living than before Since that time Kaffir corn has be come the leading grain crop in Kansas and western Oklahoma and its cultivation is now thoroughly established SILVER PENNIES Scottish Plowman Unearth Coin Burled Since the Rattle of llnnnoekbarn Samuel McMichan powman of Close burn Dumfrieshire lately brought to light a of silver pennies that were buried probably 587 years ago or thereabout says the London Mail Samuel McMichan being a plowman who takes a pride in his furrow rested his horses at the end of the field he was working a few days ago and cast back along the line he had followed to see that it was straight- It was not His critical eye noticed an unevenness in the ground and Samuel McMiehan stepped back over the clods of that to as certain the cause He found that his plow had broken open an earthenware pot and before him lay scattered hun dreds of pieces of what in his homely lowland way he called tin With a capful of tin the McMichan went off and consulted the farmer and most of the tin turned out to be silver pennies of the reigns of Edward T who annexed Scotland and Edward II who lost it There were over 2000 of them all in good preservation each measuring threequarters of an inch across They weighed five pounds in bulkThe oldest of the coins are those of King Alexander of Scotland who ruled from 1249 to 1285 There are also a few bearing the mint mark of Waterford in Ireland The latest are those of Edward II whom the Scots cheerfully thrashed at Itannockburn in 1314 In 1313 Edward Bruce drove the English oppressor out of Xithsdale and it is suggested that some Englishman in a hurry to reach the border put his 2000 pieces in apotsherd and hid it in the ground It would be interesting to know the name of the man who thus lost what Samuel McMichan 500 years later found Perhaps an antiquary will tell us But at any rate the crown is claiming the pennies as a treasure trove so they will probably find their way into a Scottish museum for Eng lish visitors to look at Cowardice of Lions At a recent show in Paris the heroine who was daily cast with her limbs all bound into a den of ferocious lions was taken sick and unable to perform the act A substitute obtained and thrown into the cage of the savage beasts which when they saw a stranger in their midst made a dash for the stage door with their tails between their legs beat a hasty retreat and were so badly scared that they
