wireless telephoning which was tried at 1owderhorn Lake Sunday afternoon proved a decided success and may take the place of tin old systems of wires The originator of the idea is J C Kelsey who Is in charge of the switchboard nt the Northwestern Telephone Exchange Cos building and with him were five other employes of the company The method is n very simple one On either sides of the lake they strung a wire about one hundred feet in length the two being parallel Theywere above the ground and fastened with grounding plus to in sure better induction An ordinary local telephone transmitter and receiver were attached to either wire When thin transmitting circuit is cut in it induces the current into the rev delving circuit nnd when the reedit ing circuit is cut in it induces the circuit into the transmitting circuit In this way the advantage of both circuits is secured with out the use of wire and as a result the conversa tion can be carried on more easily nnd with better results The wires to which the instruments were nt tached run parallel nnd there nre two currents in operation all the time The one going from one end of the wire to the other and the second flowing to its affinity as it werethat is the parallel wires The use of the system is not con fined to water It is available on land if good ground facilities can be secured The experimenters say that they could easily converse n distance of 20 miles with the crude Instruments used Sunday BOY KILLED HIS FATHER The Mother SUIer nml the Latter Iliintmliit Imiillcnteil In the Terrible Crime Poplar Uluff Mo Nor

mid n Itrnl Ornnmrnt to the Farm They Hnve Sin Ritual In planting evergreens for n windbreak It Is well to remember that the best results are obtained when the trees are closely branched clear to the ground thus giving tin upward curving surface that seems to turn the wind upward giving protection to a building even taller than the row of trees This Idea is shown In the cut time dotted line showing the direction of the wind It the trees are not thick at their bases the wind will not be thus deflected tip ward and the chief value of the hedge as a windbreak is lost And right here It Is to be remembered that to secure an evergreen tree close branched to the ground the trees must EVERGREENS AS WINDBREAKS not be planted tdo closely together When evergreens crowd each other time crowded portion Is quite sure to die out leaving open Spaces for time wind to blow through In setting out a windbreak therefore put the trees far enough apart so that when they be come of average size they will form a compact screen In setting out small trees one Is always In danger of setting them too near together whether they be fruit trees or ornamentals The Ul timate size qf the tree must always he kept in mind when setting It out It is asserted by those who have had ex perience that n double row of ever greens do not fforcl110 good a protee tion from the wind as a single row that has grown up Into a compact hedge since the double rows so shade some of the trees that they do not grow well In transplanting evergreens It Is Im portant to keep time roots from becom ing dry and to give plenty of moisture after setting When the roots of an evergreen get thoroughly dried out its chances for life are very small Jndecil N Y Tribune MUST USE WIDE TIRES ProrUlon of an excellent Lass raarit hT

Instrument to his lips and he would run his fingers over this rude muslcnl Instrument and make a great denl of sweet harmony for the people That was the only kind of weapon Seven priests were to take these rude rustic muslcnl Insfrti mcnts and they were to go nrouni the city every tiny for six days onci a day for six days and then on the seventh day they were to go around blowing these rude musical instru ments seven times and then nt the close of the seventh blowing of the rams horns on tho seventh tiny the peroration of the whole scene was to be a shout nt which those great willis should tumble from capstone to base The seven priests with the rude mu sical Instruments pass nil around the city walls on the first day anti score a failure Not so much apiece of plaster broke loose from the wall not so much as a loosened rock not sc much as a piece of mortar lost from Its place There say the unbeliev ing Israelites did I not tell you so Why those ministers are fools The Idea of going around the city with those musical instruments and ex pecting in that way to destroy it Joshua luau been spoiled Ho thinks because he tins overthrown and conquered the spring freshet he can over throw tho stone wall Why it is not philosophic Do you not see there Is no relation between the blowing of these musical instruments nnd the knocking down of the wall It is not philosophic And I suppose there were many wiseacres who stood with their brows knitted nnd with the forefinger of the right hand to the fore finger of the left hand arguing it all out and showing that it was not pos sible that such a cause could produce such nn effect And I suppose that night In the encampment there was plenty of caricature and if Joshua hind been nominated for any high mil itary position he would not have re ceived many votes Joshuas stock was down The second day the priest blowing the musical instruments go around the city nnd again a failure The third tiny and n failure fourth day and a failure fifth day and a failure sixth day and a failure The seventh day comes the climacteric day Joshua is up early in the morn Ing anti examines the troops walks all about looks at the cityuvnll The priests start to make the circuit of the city They go all around once nil around twice three times four times five times six times seven times and n fnilnre There is only one more thing to do and that Is to utter n great shout I see the Isrnelltish army straightening themselves up filling their lungs for a vociferation such ns was never heard before and never heard after Joshua feels that time hour has come and be cries out to his host Shout for the Lord bath given you the city All to getter the troops shout Down Jericho Down Jericho And time long line of solid mnsonry begins to quiver nnd to move and to rock Stand from under She falls Crash go the willis and temples the towers the palaces the air blackened with the dust Time huzza of the victorious Israelites nnd the groan of the con quered Cnnnnnltcs commingle and Joshua standing there In the debris of the walls hears a voice saying There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy lifeOnly one house spared Who lives there Some great king Xo Some woman distinguished for great kindly deeds Xo She had been conspicu ous for her crimes It Is the house of llnhnb Why was her house spared Hecaute she had been n

Wherefore Heat thou upon thy face Joshua rises amid I war rant you with a mortified look Hut his old courage comes back The fact was teat teas not his battle Ifhe had been in it he would have gone on to victory He gathers his troops around him anti says Now let us go up and capture the city of AI Let us go up right away They march on He puts the majority of the troops behind a ledge of rocks in the night nnd then he sends comparatively small regiments up in front of the city Time men of Al come out with a shout The small regiments of Israel ites in stratagem fall back and fall back and when all the men of Al have left the oltnnd are in pursuit of these scattered or seemingly scattered regi meats Joshua stands on a rockI see hula locks flying in the wind as he points his spear toward the doomed city and that is the signal The men rush out from behind the rocks and take the city and it is put to the torch and then these Israelites In time city march down and the flying Israelites return and between these two waves of Is raelitish prowess the men of Ai are destroyed and the Israelites gain the victory and while I see the curling smoke of that destroyed city on time sky anti while I hear the huzza of the Israelites anti the groan of the Ca naanites Joshua hears something louder than It nil ringing and echoing through his soul There shall not any mnn be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life nut Joshua was not quite through There was time for five funerals be fore the sun of that prolonged day set Who will prench their funeral sermon Mnssillon preached

Joshua rest Why he Is to have his greatest battle now After 110 years he has to meet n king who luau more subjects than all the present population of the earth his throne a pyramid of skulls his parterre the graveyards and the cemeteries of the world his chariot the worlds hearse the king of terrors Hut If this is Joshuas great est battle it Is going to be Joshuas greatest victory He gathers his friends around him and gives his vale dietary anti it Is full of reminiscence Young men tell what they are going to do Old men tell what they have done And as you have heard a grand father or great grandfnlher seated by the evening fire tell of Monmouth or Yorktown and then lift the crutch or staff ns though It were n musket to fight and show how the old battles were won Joshua gathers

meat butter eggs chickens milk fruit or vegetables and very little money was spent for breadstuffs Vo were cover without tho things mentioned everything was raised and saved at home anti wo always had lard tallow chickens fat pigs and vegetables more than we needed so wo disposed of these for such gro conies etc as we could not raise at homo We did not like pork as a steady diet so used to select n nice well fed young beef animal and about the first cool days in November wo slaughtered it and put up all choice meaty parts for winter use InI pickle tho receipt for which will bo given below the rough parts shinbones head we pickled the tongue and bones from which time meat had jecii cut we put in tho big kettle outdoors und thoroughly stowed tho whole together and then strained it well and put the liquid up in jars and in winter wife would cut a chunk out of it for it would be a still jolly and put it over the fire and you never tasted better soup than that was in your life The stuff that was strain ed out the chickens turner into eggs for pumpkin pies Time tallow entrails and scraps of fat not fit for food wont into the HOap grease barrel tho hide wo sold for cash The fact is all wo could not find good use for were the hoofs and horns and sometimes we used the horns for pow dor flasks and dog horns Wo never had one pound of beef to spoilon our hands and we had some to use in I

tense from it right along and if you want to you can in about throe weeks take some of tho choice lean cuts without bone and hang them to dry for chipped beaf Cut your meat in pieces the right size to
