A little while back the Kentucky Blue Grass Section was famous for her thoroughbred Shorthorn cattle says the Mt Sterling Advocate The highest prices known to the world pre vailed there and many became rich It isnot so now Why Let the wri ter They went too high and in the decline breeders became dis couraged and careless and hence the Shorthorns of the past in form model and pedigree are almost extinct The man with a pure bred Shorthorn herd now has a fortune in reach Scarcity Of Shorthorns Eight cents may be paid for choice beef before the holiday market says an exchange The 7J cent notch has already been reached on a few cracker jacks the tailings of a bunch that is being put in show condition for the International This will indicate how good they had to be to make the price and what slight chance the average feeder has to get such money Viewed from any standpoint present market conditions are not unsatisfactory Prices are so much higher than a year ago as to leave the feeder a margin of profit and if existing conditions can be maintained little complaint will be heard The Same Old Cry Keeo it out of the paper is the cry which the local newspaper publish er daily hears To oblige often costs considerable though the party who makes the request thinks the granting scarcely worth saying thank you for A newspapers a peculiar thing in the publics eye The news gatherer is stormed at because he gets hold of one item and is abused because he does not get another Young men and often young women as well as older persons perform acts which become legitimate items for publication and then rush to the newspaper oiliee and beg the ed itor not to notice their escapades The next day they condemn the same pa per for not having published another party doing the same thing they were guilty of forgetting apparently their late visit to the printing otlice Clipper Some Very Pertinent Pointers Harrodsburg Democrat The hull day rush is almost in sight and the time for

girl was sick Was it Sears Roebuck Who carried you last winter when you was out of a job and had no money Was it Montgomery Ward Co or was it your home merchant When you want to raise money for the

the village made a clean sweep of everything before it in the way of buildings and only paused when there was nothing to lick up except the or chards that once formed a hedge be tween the homesteads and the open country Even then it was hardly sat isfied for it greedily devoured the first two ranks of apple and pear trees leaving nothing but cinders the next three rows though very scorched were not quite destroyed the farthest away being naturally the least Some of the boughs escaped oil hurt and it was with these that the curious phenomenon was observed which merits attention A second flowering commenced at once and by the end of October all the trees farth est from the scene of the fire were in full bloom as if called to renewed life by the fresh voice of May instead of October At another point the flames had swept close to a large lilac tree and this as well as some plum trees bewildered by what must have seemed to it a sudden return of summer put on once more its bridal robes It must be mentioned that the fire only lasted four hours It will be noticed that there was no resemblance between this sudden blast of heat and the ordinary gradual forcing to which plants are subjected Killing Out Bermuda Gras Those who fear that Bermuda grass does too well with them may kill it out by plOwing two or three inches deep in December after allowing stock to graze it closely After freezing weather in January or February the land should be plowed again six or eight Inches deep well harrowed and seeded thickly to oats as soon as the weather is warm enough usually about March 1 Cowpeas should be planted on the oatstubble immediately after harvest and after they are mowed pastured off or plowed under wheat should be sown This method will effectually remove Bermuda

Spreading chinchbus disease has not proved very successful in Okla homa At one time it was thought that perhaps by the spreading of an infection that this pest could be suc cessfully eradicated but experience has proved that warm moist weather is necessary for the spread of the disease On the other hand cool dry weather Is unfavorable and no infec tion occurs The authorities at the point out that there are four means by which the farmer can protect himself from the chinch bug These are given in the follow ing 1 Destroy during the winter or early spring all the winter quarters n Oklahomastation THE CHINCH BUG Adult at left a b eggs magnified and natural size c young nymph e sec ond stage of nymph f third stage g fullgrown nymph d h j legs I beak through which food Is taken Small lines show natural size of the bugs together with the bugs themselves by deep plowing Chinch bugs fly in the fall to bunchgrass their natural food before crops were introduced to pass the winter Not finding the grass they will hibernate in any shelter that may be at hand During April they fly back to the crops to mate and deposit their eggs Generally the wheat is in prime con dition for them at this time and it is the crop that suffers most when the eggs hatch and the young bugs begin to feed Of course the great est damage is done later when the broods become very numerous and begin to migrate to new fields The crop moved upon at that time is the one to save 2 Plant a trap crop to protect the main crop and when the bugs move upon the trap plow the whole under bugs and all This method has given good results The trap crop mny be millet Kafir or sorghum be on the side of the field nearest to the wheat 3 Plow a space of ten feet around the cornfield when the bugs begin to leave the wheat harrow and drag with brush to make as much dust as possible This can be done only in dry weather Small immature bugs will not be able to cross the ten feet of dust and the mature ones will seldom resort to flying 4 Later in the season when insects move upon the corn a few rows cut and piled in armfulsized piles will attract the chinch bugs and if it is warm and the corn heats thousands of bugs will die under these piles from a chinchbug disease The piles of green corn offer the ideal weather conditions hot and damp the disease being naturally present soon takes and the result is the death of all bugs affected Do not attempt to destroy the chinch bug by spraying It has been tried at the experiment station and by numerous farmers with the same unsuccessful results A few more tests will be made with sprays and the results given if successful But until then the farmer has adequate means at hand to materially lessen the damages by this pest by using the above methods To repeat By all means plant a trap crop and plow it under when the bugs move upon it in great num bers Plow a dust strip and lay piles of green cut corn or sorghum in the path of the migrating bugs Then finally

Kept Powdered There are still many persons who not exactly understand that it ia good practice to plow corn during dry weather in order to preserve the moisture already in the soil I have in mind a Held of corn that was free of weeds ami the ground in such fino condition that I was told the corn did not need nor would it stand moro plowing But I went ahead and plowed half the field for the last time In a few weeks I was in the field again and noticed that the corn plowed in dry weather had made de cidedly the best growth I could not lay the cause to anything else than that the stirring of the ground had assisted in reserving the moisture for the ground was already In good when plowed the last time investigation has proved this fo be the fact- I believe that wrong impressions are sometimes obtained by some persons who have plowed corn in dry weather when the ground was hard and evi dently had a bad effect on the corn causing the blades to roll The mis take was in permitting the ground to get hard as under such condition the ground cannot be worked without in jury to the roots of the corn Besides this the clods leave openings which facilitate the evaporation of moisture A good coat of fine dirt over the sur face of the ground will prevent this It is well known that water is con stantly evaporating In other words it is taken up in a finely divided form carried to the surface of the ground and given off into the air At times It may be well that this is true for It gives the plant a chance of relief from an occasional oversupply of moisture But in case of drought it ground leaving a mulch of finely pul verized dirt on the surface Then the moisture instead of escaping is taken up by the roots of the growing plant To secure this condition it is that the ground be stirred as soon after a rain as the ground will permit If says the Orange Judd Farmer a heavy rain comes right away after the corn has been plowed the last time it will be necessary In the event of a dry spell following to stir the ground again if the size of the corn will permit If the corn is enough to shade the ground pretty well the evaporation will not be so great and the heavy dews will also be more effective In preparing ground for oats or other plants with shallow roots the ground should not be stirred too deep if dry weather is expected as the moisture will be shut off too far down to be of benefit THREEHORSE EVENER Handy Arrangement for Use on the Plow Harrow and Other Farm Tools The accompanying cut which was used a number of years ago shows a threehorse evener which has sever al advantages over the triple trees for plowing harrowing etc It is lighter and handles better in turning The short evener is made of iron and is about 14 inches long 1 inches wide II do I Further evaporationThis necessary large r condition ANOTHER THREEHORSE EVENER and fiveeighths inches thick Two fiveeighthsincb holes are bored in either end 12 Inches from center An other fiveeighths inch hole is bored a third of the distance between the two or four inches from the other These holes should be bored so as to give the greatest drawing surface on the side of draft A long evener is fastened at the lower end with whiffle trees for the outside horses and a singletree fastens to the upper hole for the center horse The hook or clevis used for the attachment of the singletree should be long enough to bring it out in line with the whiffle trees on the evener below The whif fletrees should be of ordinary plow length or just long enough to swing clear of each other If they are too long they are sure to prove Oat Hay for Roughage At times when the hay crop is short oats may be grown and before the grain is mature and cured for coarse fodder The plan however is not an ideal one for mak ing hay as the stalks are hollow coarse and hard and unless dried very quickly in a dry season they bleached even when cut green To cure the crop in best condition it says Orange Judd Farmer should be dried in the sun for a few hours with a liberal use of the hay tedder where there is a heavy crop Sheep Help the Land Sheep are almost essential in main taining the fertility and cleanliness

vital bless ings that are curing in upon them The Puritans must have recognized this even in their day when they in augurated a custom that has become as firmly fixed as the constitution of the United States While the ad herents of the Pilgrim church which was exiled from England in IGOS and seat a colony over to New England in the Mayflower in 1020 are unques tionably to be credited with our na tional Thanksgiving day which peals so deeply to the heart of the patriotic American the custom of thanksgiving was undoubtedly by the Hebrew Feast of the Tabernacles or Feast of Ingather ing at the end of the year Occa sional thanksgiving was not unusual in EuropeAfter first harvest of the colon ists at Plymouth in 1C1H Gov Bradford sent four men out fowling that they might rejoice and celebrate in feast ing together In July 1C23 a day of fasting and prayer war appointed on account of the drought Rain came while the people were praying and the governor appointed a day for which Was observed with re ligious service There was a similar change of fastday into Thanksgiving in 1631 when supplies came from Ire land All of these earlier appoint ments however were made at various seasons of the year and for special purposes usually for the timely ar rival of ships with in later years on account of the harvests This substantiated a fixed day late in the fall after the har vest time was over and also the cele bration of the day by first a religious service and then a feast When the revolutionary war began Thanksgiv ing had become a national holiday and was annually recommended by con gress However after the general thanksgiving for peace in 17S1 there was no national appointment until 17S9 when President Washington by a request of congress recommended retting aside a day of thanks for the adoption of the constitution In later years during the civil war Lincoln Issued a proclamation recommending a special thanksgiving for victory in 1SG2 and 18G3 Since then proclama tions have been made by the president and governors of the various states and custom has fixed the date on the Thursday in November It is 284 years since that first Thanksgiving dinner in New England was eaten but to many of us the aroma of the turkey as we gather around the table surrounded by fam ily and friends to offer up thanks for the abundance of worldly goods with which our households have been sup plied will recall the legends of the old New England days and review the customs of that Thanksgiving in in 1621 With a little stretch of the imagination one can almost dis cern that throng of soberlooking bearded men clad in dark colored and wearing steeplecrowned hats with here and there among them the women with quaintly shaped hoods and devoid of ribbons jewelry and It was such a gathering as this that Hester Prynne faced when condemned to wear the scarlet letter Stern and ex I suppliesbut I ornaments unrelentingthemselves i apt suggested thanksgiving Thanksgiving last Plymouth garments iled from the mother country on ac count of their religious tenets they brooked no breach in those funda mental laws that formed the basis of their theological system The laws of New England must be obeyed and jus tice cruel swift and certain fell upon the ovildcer The genius of a Haw thorne has painted in our minds this picture of the Puritans The green clad mountains and the waving trees are brought before us We sigh for poor Hester and pity the young minis ters struggles between manhood and self while the witch antics of Mistress Hibbins recall vividly those dark days of superstition at Salem Then has another master hand up for us those scenes In the old colony days In Plymouth the lard of the Pilgrims We have followed the courtship of Miles Standish and have heard the message of love borne by John Alden for another The struggle of the fair haired youth has been as our own We have heard him plead the cause of his friend before the Puritan flower Priscilla while his own heart was breaking for the love he would not tell We have smelled the sweetness of the Plymouth woods we have heard the brawling of the brook over pebble and shallow at the ford We have seen the bloom of the May flow ers and we have caught the sacred an them sung by the sweetvoiced maid en Our hearts have gone out to John Alden and we fain would have spoken for him Then we have laughed too when amid her spinning Archly the maiden smiled and with eyes overrunnfrt with laughter Said in a tremulous voice Why dont you speak for yourself John Thus has the immortal poet led us through the paths of love in that quiet New England village But it was not always the songs of peace that he sang for he tells us how Paul Revere says to his friend If the Uritish march By land or sea from the town tonight Hans a lantern aloft on the belfry arch Of the North church tower as a signal light One if by land and two If by sea And I on the opposite shore will be Heady to ride aid spread the alarm Through every Middlesex village and farm For the country folks to be up and to arm In like manner have the songs of Whittier depicted those early days in the land of the Pilgrim fathers By the magic of his pen he brings clearly to our view the everyday life of that sturdy race We see the old homes and the farms In our fancy Still sits the schoolhouse by the road A rugged beggar sunning Around it still the sumachs grow And blackberry vines are running And then it is an easy step in our reveries to join Ik Marvel that prince of bachelors in his reveries over the wood fire in his quiet farmhouse in New England One almost can see that broad bachelor bedstead now with the soft warm feathers upon it and hear the crackling of the oak and hickory on the hearth between the whistling of the wind through the broken panes of glass Thus are we led through sweet dream memories to a better understanding and a dearer appreciation of that rugged stock which has been the bone and sinew of this great strong progressive American people and we teach with pride our children and our childrens children the homage due to our sturdy ancestors on this great national Thanksgiving day conjured The great sale begins Dec 1st H T LOGAN S AT I s y i r y- 7 NM1 i CsrtZrn t e mn etl l rnv a Thanksgiving Day of toe Myriad Years Has I Dswned for AIi the World Out of floods of tropic heat the great earth rolls and the cool November days make the heart glad as the work of the summer is revealed to us By day the great autumn sun is shedding glory upon the world it loves by night the glowing stars are flashing messages of might and splendor to man while above the great encircling Milky Way sends to us impulses for good beyond our deepest guess With the harvests of the nation overflowing the great treasuries of the farms and the growing millions of the new race looking forward to a winter of achievement as successful as the sea sou of growth we may feel the life of all the earth within our veins The season is the millennial dawn not only for the year but for the cen turies Truth forever on the moun tains watching till the day begun has seemed to moth us but in the glad messages of peace of education of liberty of awakening life in lands that sat in darkness we may read this autumn as never before confirmation of the prophecies and forewarnings of the seers who study star and soul As though some fortunate star far off had begun to shine faintly upon us 20 centuries ago and now having come near after billions of miles of journey ings were giving us the impulse to become at one with God so the soul of all mankind is quickened and the great Babylon is fallen and the King dom of the Spirit is established even amid the rising dust of its desolation Darkened is that mind that has not felt the influences of the New Day Out of a land where a century or two ago savage men were the only people there comes today the voice of the mightiest sons of the mightiest peopleNot a poets dream is this new age of golden promise It was brought forth with tears and crucifixions in the long ago when the plains of Pales tine were cold with winter winds It was struggled for when men aid wom t S f en gave their blood as a testimony to the dominance of the spiritual when the long hours of the dark ages were marked by the fagots that burned when the later light was upheld by church reformers and the singers who sang alone with God Now Truth the Spirit of Freedom has gained for it self captains and kings and mighty men of war and peace It is en throned in council chambers and k dictating peace at The Hague and in many a land for the people weary of the cruelty of kingcraft and the ancient forms are already dead In such an environment the family life is being transmuted He who does not love shall not build a home she who is not established in love shall go forth is the decree of the purifying thought which unseeing men and women are panicstricken as they face Our households seem to crumble but the Master builds again and the charmed life of goodness shall make every desolate heart bright and like an altar stone when love has made the work complete Verily I say unto you that many prophets and kings have prayed to see these things and have not seen them You who walk carelessly in the com mon day are permitted to even now behold a mystery of God The abroad in human hearts and the turmoil that many deplore is the call or the Angel of the Morning The Thanksgiving day of the myriad years has come Did you look to see the better day dawn with trumpeters upon the hills and archangels in the valleys with a host in purple and scarlet and gold coniingwith glittering spears amid the clouds of heaven The kingdom cometh not with observation You shall see its hosts in the streets of the city as they go about their work in the consciousness that they are not as driven cattle but are dwellers with the Christ heirs of God from the be ginning saintly in their final nature reverent in their aspirations bound to the perfection which is absolute joy What is too Thanksgiving message to you What is the sign of ap pearing f First these mighty proofs of the life among men The shouting of Its spirits divine nations that cry out against waste and destruction The making of peace with justice The mighty songs anti affir mations of strong men who labor but labor not as slaves To you person ally the sign of the drawing near of the kingdom is the open hand The hand that reaches toward you with realms we do not see Large hands that men who toil and suffer greatly extend to you Clean hands of youths and maids who do not comprehend but love God gives us signs in street and home and store The sign of the giving hand the receiving hand that also gives unseen gifts The sign of the kindly glance the smiling face the quiet sympathy the supiJorting arm when all is dimmed with tears There is no God but God oh bur dened one There is no power but His No matter how the world has disciplined you remember that And now in this time of festival be strong in the good you feel within be confi dent and unafraid and make Thanks giving real When thou makest a feast said Jesus do not be anxious to get only fashionable folk but invite those who have need of you the un fortunate those you can help If you do this you shall have joy from the Father Heed well this advice When you make your east bring to it those who have need of you Perhaps your own relatives will more than fill your table Bring to it those who have need not of turkey dinners but of your spiritual bread and wine So crushed so maimed so halt and blind are some whom God meant should in this life be beautiful and strong that no feast can be to them so welcome as the feast of kindly helpful love and gentle compassion Defects of tem per are as hard to bear as defects of bone the bound and crooked thought is as much an affliction as the bound and crooked limb In your thankful ness be careful to manifest your grat LRDj I peoplefresh h u u u uu u itude not to empty air but to the ones of the kingdom- it is more necessary to you that you love and forgive than it is to others to whom your attitude is incidental rather than vital Therefore drown in thankfulness and affection all the lower levels of your nature The hate and scorn that you have should be carried far on divine tides of life into lepths where they will no more be foundPity not yourself if your material feast is poor Blessedness is not born of material things He who lay upon the ground under the dews of heaven and less than the foxes found rest for His head He who endured the forms jf shame and sorrow cried unto His followers Rejoice and again I say unto you rejoice It was the ut terance of eternal affirmation triumph ing over the prince of this world Re joice and again I say unto you cries the great Angel of Life as He stands today with one foot upon the land and one upon the seas and calleth to all kindreds tongues and tribes to come out of the dying shad ows of weakness into the Open Day of Love Make yourself part of this universal gentleness that is now moving man rind Welcome home the wanderers Forgive forget ignore Shed no tears for your faithful dead They have not forgotten you That power which gave them eternal existence is them eternal love You too shall enter where they are Put away the lesser self and sing with gladness all the days The Mes sengers of Morning are on the hills of earth Reasons for Gratitude In reviewing the history of the country since the Thanksgiving day when Massasoit was willing there should be peace in his part of the world a multitude of things are for which thanks are due The growth of this republic its wealth and power have astonished all nations Few countries so

SacrificeI- n Antiquity and American Lineage the Bird Takes Precedence in Western Continent When Thanksgiving day conies and families gather around the feast of which the turkey reigns as royal it is the hour to win opinion re garding the American national bird Long has the eagle soared and screamed and flapped its wings but no day of regard has been put in its honor in the calendar When it comes to antiquity and a true American lineage the turkey takes precedence Patriotic societies are finding this out and committees are considering the advisability of making a place for the bird among emblems The eagle is a the bird of Jove the tur meleagHs belongs to the western continent The sacrifice on the altar of thanks giving is a species distinct from winged and feathered fowl of a dis tant relationship fount in Europe Like the American Indian it has ab original traits and inspire by the spirit of the west and an intense love for freedom refuses the confining restraints of civilization The American turkey was among the strange birds discovered by the Spaniards when they invaded Mexico Oviedo describes it about 1527 as do mesticated among the christianized Indians of New Spain Mexico and being the bird reserved for festivals Gay describes the gallopavo sylvestris the wild turkey of New England as the wonder of the pilgrim fathers and from all this data it will be seen that the turkey has a claim to na tional tribute Virginia and Missouri historians write of turkey fowls as peculiar to their wooded hills but Rhode Island has laid an official claim to the best bred stock that goes abroad Little Rhody bases its traditions on the cus toms of the Narragansett Indians a tribe which once ruled tho entire New England area but became extinct King Philips war The Narragansetts treasured ino turkey as a sacred bird after their days tle Niantics took the matter up both for the cause of religion and for the comfort of their stomachs and thus preserved the species from and

Thanksgiving Day the Oldest of Oar Holidays First Enjoined as Religious as Well as Civic Obligation the Spirit of the Season Remains It is a season of gladsome Far away as are our lives from those of time little band of colonists of Massachusetts Bay who reverently es tablished a day of thanksgiving for mercies which to us seem no more than the commonplaces of a meagre existence the spirit of the occasion survivesThrough all the vicissitudes of our national development Thanksgiving day has been preserved as peculiarly the New England memorial For gen erations it had a sectional observance and a limited significance It was not until the white heat of the civil war fused our people of all sections into a nation homogeneous that the New England Thanksgiving was made that of the whole country Since the first proclamation by the president calling for the observance tion of the union of the states the cus tom has been maintained the genera tion of today knows it in this char acter alone This is the oldest of War holidays In the early times of sectarian intol erance when church and state were joined in the rule of Massachusetts there was no Christmas under the law Observance of the natal day of the Prince of Peace was discouraged if not absolutely prohibited by harsh enactments But the recognition of the day of thanksgiving was enjoined as a religious as well as a civic obli gation All this is changed in the growth of our people our commonwealth our nation to the stature which we see Our whole people unite in the of thanks and if the religious ole ment is given less prominence in the forms with which the day is observed in the hearts of all there is a no less reverent gratitude for the benefac tions with which the Power which rules the universe has crowned of people and of individuals in this happy age We must be glad every one of us hat we live today The condition of humanity is not perfect thee are cruel exceptions to universal human felicity but the advance has not only been great but steady and full of promise for the race And aa for the immediate present we have only to compare existing conditions of physical comfort of intellectual of moral and social uplift

of its volume and so does not reduce the capacity of the cistern more than twothirds of the volume of the filter wall In figure 2 the cost of the filter will be less than in figure 1 but the ca of the filter will be as much less as the filter wall is less still a filter of such a size would supply an ordinary family with an abundance of water so long as the depth of water in the cistern exceeded three feet It the cistern Is given the form repro sented in figure 3 it would be neces sary to use two thicknesses of brick to withstand the pressure of the water i when the water surface was much lowered on the filter chamber below that of the surface outside If the walls are arched slightly sc as to convex toward A then a single layer of brick will give a sufficient strengthThe of the cistern should be of cement concrete either slightly arched so as to be selfsupporting or it may be flat and reenforced by one or more Ibeams resting on the walls of the cistern and filter In any case the point is that it should be water and vermintight The entrance way r and overflow will provide sufficient ventilation but there should be pro Tided a manhole to the filter B and also to the chambers C and A The manholes In the two water chambers are necessary to provide for cleaning and there is a possibility but not a probability that the sand might need changing after a good many years Annoyed by the Window The late Joseph Parker of London while a brilliant speaker was also very eccentric He went once to a town Is Lancashire to preach the sermon on behalf of a new church which was being erected The services were held in the old building This was rather dilapidated and the windows had frosted glass which had accumulated the dust of years In the midst of a beautiful peroration he turned round and pofnting his finger L to a window in the upper corner of the building above a gallery said Like the sun streaming In through yonder window which would shine all the better If It were cleaned Thoroughly Feminine What A woman doesnt know the angrily Gracious do you mean to say a womans word isnt as good mansIt be better morally he but It isnt as satisfying Any man as angry as you
