times it has been the custom of watchmakers to reduce fresh bread to the form of dough This is done by steaming and kneading They then use this dough for removing oil and chips that naturally adhere in course of man ufacture to pieces as small as the parts of a watch There are many are so small as to be barely visible to the naked eye The oil Is ab Sorbed by the dough and the chips stick to it and there is no other known substance which can be used as a wiper without leaving some of Us particles attached to the thing wiped This accounts for the con tinued use of bread dough in the

2000 to 16000 That Kentucky should have such t an officer should be patent to every man who has given the subject serious consideration Not only does Kentucky suffer more anyStateBoard of Agriculture Forestry and Immigration Is now conducting a forest survey of the State and a prac iical forester should have charge of the work The survey Is now being made by experts furnished by the national De-

Is thoroughly ramillai with the States resources and needs should at least assist in the works So far eleven counties have been covered and the official report of this f Work will be presented to the

itsTHE SHEEP LAW Much has been sadd about the dog J law or as it should properly be styled the sheep law Recently the State Department of Agriculture re quested each of Its several hundred crop correspondents in the State to ascertain the consensus of opinion in their several counties Out of the hundred replies about half of the ex pressions were unfavorable but not In a single case was there an explan ation as to why the farmers are against the law The cry against the dog law may do very well as a cam I palgn slogan in certain sections of the mountains where many of the people have allowed their sentiment for the dog to practically destroy the sheep and angora goat industry but as a practical business proposition it is nilIt is just such nonsense as the absurd fight against the law enacted in the interest Of the sheep industry of Kentucky that holds the farmer in check and keeps him in the same old rut he has been groveling in for the past fifty years In nearly all the cases where favor able expressions were received fromI the crop correspondents there accompanying expression that there are more sheep being raised in those sections than was the case before the law was enacted We trust the farmers will look to their own business interests and that the delegates to the State Farmers Institute will again endorse the meas ure as they did at the last two annual sessions THE LAWS OF COMMERCE Consumption of Products In Accord it t ance with Fixed Principles r It Is useless to fight for innovo i tlpns and reforms that are not based upon logic and sustained toy sound principles There is too much of the superficial In evidence in the work of many who undertake to better com mercial conditions The j scientist kttopvs better than to Ignore the laws of gravity in his calculations The reformer Is foolish to set about his work with an idea of disobeying any known natural law He Is sure conditions in the commercial world that must be observed Trade is In according to

ave si fs tics that show the average require ments of a certain class of people We know to a certainty how the average runs We can not tell how much a single man wlllj spend for living during a year but we do know the average that each in a thousand or two thousand men will spend classifying them as to occupation and earning capacity Therefore it stands to reason that in every com munity the amount of trade Is In accordance with the population and the classes of people composing the community It is useless to argue that trade can be Increased by cer taro methods A certain merchant by advanced methods may increase his trade but as he does sd some one else loses proportionately Reformers and business uuiidera should bear these facts In mind and not get their wires crossed WANTS BETTER HORSES No army can get along without goo horses both for cavalry and artillery usennd that Is the reason I am in favor of the Government tstablishlng breeding farms similar to those of Russia and AustroHun gary said L D Detwllpr of Amelia Court House Va at the Riggs House In the Boer War in South Africa England purchased about 12 000 cavalry horses in the Argentine Republic and shipped them across to the Capt of Good Hope and she also purchased about 7500 horses in Aus troHungary which while not so good as might have been desired were In finitely better than those bought in South America Suppose England had been engaged In a war with some power on the continent how would she have procured her Hungarian bred horses Here In this country we have plenty of public land that could be used for breeding farms Out west there is any amount of desert land reclaimed by irrigation that would be Ideal for the breeding of cavalry re mounts along improved linessay across of thoroughbred and Arabian with range horses Horses native to that country have hard legs and feet as well as great lung power super Induced by the dry climate of the plains Many soldiers who have been mustered out of service by the age limit might find good and profitable employment at such Government farms as grooms and hostlers In AustroHungary there was no great amount of racing until 1860 yet they have been using thoroughbreds for breeding their cavalry horses since 1785 and have reenforced their Farms with Englishbred sires from time to time until every cavalry horse in the Austrian army contains from 50 to 70 per cent of thorough bred blood The United States Government has taken up the experIment- of breeding a better type of Ameri can cajrlage horse founded on the old Morgan horse Why not experi ment with the Improvement of a bet ter cavalry horse a far more im portant matter Washington Post rK OF P BANQUET Dexter Lodge No Knights of Pythias served a handsomt banquet last night at the Capitol Hotel There was a large crowd of happy Knights present to enjoy the feast POULTRY IContinued from first pige for the farmer but one of that type constructed that the hen can get her head in thus decreasing the waste of her food In this selffeeder the noonday meal consisting of a mix ture of wheat bran mash or clover or alfalfa leaves used alternately and middlings and meat scraps or waste from the table can be put The morn ing meal can be made of wheat screenings with a light addition of oats ne rye scattered on the litter Poultry must have exercise We say this with emphasis To give them sufficient in addition to the above heady of cabbage mangolds or beets may be suspended so they will have to jump to reach them We have already given the noonday meal For this evening plain corn is both good and convenient and it should be scat tered over the litter Feed is costly and dangerous During the winter when it Is mild the hen should have the run of a yard or the range of the farm Blue grass wheat and rye at such times furnish her cheap succulent food and sufficient exercise for best results Repeating dont let her run out when there is snow on the ground and the tempera ture is below twenty IR the above we have outlined a building feeds and appurtenances thereto from the winter egg point of view which If followed will give a profit of one dollar per year for each hen kept If you are keeping them for meat your building need not be enclosed on the south side or at least three felt below the plates on a level with the dropping floor You will need no separate roosting or scratching rooms Keep but one breed Then you have uni formity in in all respects Afew eggs and birds can be sold each year for setters and breeders at an advance over the market price For upto date broilers and oldtime friers keej an early maturing breed You want feathers first meat afterwards Instead of mixing your different breeds change your males each year A good way to begin Js to get four or five settings of eggs from that many reliable breeders A good start is half the finish For eggs use only the pullets and yearlings two and three yearolds as a rule are unprofitable Utilize them as mother hens Dont jey a cheap incubator Dont buy one at all unless you can attend toi all the minutia Have a room large and where the temperature not vary more than two or three doesI grees regardless of the weather side Dont feed the chicks anything until they are from thirty to thirtysix hours old The white of the egg Is repre sented by the body of the chick What of the yolk It has been the food of the germ since incubation began and now of the young chick until It is all absorbed Give them clean fine sand- a few hours before you give them any food The sand is their teeth and the teeth must be in place before they are fed any digestible substance Pinhead rolled oats moistened stale bread or oat meal is a good ration Either of these may he fed continuously for three or four days not forgetting the sand until they are fully feathered out Equal parts of corn meal and shipjstuff thoroughly mixed and baked If bowel trouble appears supply them with cracked corn wheat meat meal and blood meal and their digestion will not be impaired We have not said anything about brooders they are a valuable adjunct when properly managed With both young and old hens sanitation must not be neglected They must not be k ptin a damp overwarm or cold room A dry equal temperature will beat special foods and nostrums The good results of the skeletonized poultry house In Kentucky have been on account of its Ideal sanitation The ideal poultry of the future for Kentucky will bo a combination of the skeletonized and the uptodate porches attached to the winter house Gapes in young and adult fowls are produced by the presence In the windpipe or trachea of the gap worm Syn gamus trachealls a near relative of the stomach worm that destroys so many sheep It Is of American origin and attacks all members of the order Salllnae The gape worms life cycle is very similar to that of its near relative There are two ways they are carried over the winter viz through adult fowls and the angle worms

mine has au ostrich ranch down near Albuquerque N M and though he is making money with his birds he has his troubles as well The only way in which you can do anything with an ostrich Is to cover up his head Then you can lead him wherever you want to For that purpose the farm era have a hood which is drawn over the head so that the ostrich cannot see and then they are changed around as you may want them but woe to you if they happen to get the hood off while you are transferring them If that Happens you can look for trouble in solid chunks My friend told me of an experience if that kind which one of his hands had The fellow was a young Gar man who could speak little English but he was a willing worker and for that reason a favorite on the ranch One day It was necessary to transfer one of the old birds to another farm some miles away The bird was cor nered after some trouble and the hood slipped over his head and fastened Then a rope was tied about his body and neck and the German was told to take him over to the other place Ev erything went well for a time but In gome way the ostrich managed to get the hood off The German did not know what this meant and there fore made no attempt before the hood was off to see that It was securely fastened He soon found out how ever what it meant As soon as Mr Ostrich got his bearings he started The German held on to the rope pluckily and the way he traveled was a sight Ho only lilt the high places the remainder of the time he was Up in a balloon It happened that some of the men on the ranch saw the fracas and came hurrying to his asststanco- i but before they reached him he had cameIrace mlt an ostrich again and he didnt Not again could they Over get him to lead an ostrich even If he had a blanket over his head But there is money in the birds Their eggs sell from 1 to 5 each for there Is quite a demand for ostrich es both by breeders and shows which like to have them in the collection and then the zoos about the country buy them There are several rich farms out West Besides the at Albuquerque there Is one at San Jose and another at Los Angeles HE FELT HONORED i During the last season a traveler in the

be done by judiciously advertising The proprietor of a clothing and dry goods store decided that he would add a grocery department This was met with the disapproval of other mer chants In the town particularly the grocers They combined and commenced in advertising campaign rected chiefly against him Small space was ufced Tihey were greatly surprise one morning to find that the object of their atten- tIon had in the dally paper a four page advertisementE They were further surprised when the weeklies of the surrounding towns came out with one and twopage advertisements offering wonderful bargains and to pay the railroad fare of those who would purchase a certain amount of goods For miles around the town large posters announced the great sale Other merchants of the town looked upon the venture as foolish and predicted that there was some thing wrong a failure or a fire in sight Neither happened but In two weeks time the enterprising store keeper who advertised to sell 25 pounds of granulated sugar for a dol lar when the Jobbing price was more than five dollars a hundred provided the purchaser ordered other goods did a business amounting to more than 16000 or as much as the average small storekeeper does In a year Not alone that but he Is still doing the biggest business in the town He advertised rightly Winning His Wager- A tall herculean Gascon astride a wretched pony

WITH TRUST By the subjoined letter It will be seen that the prospect ror an agreement between the American Tobacco Co and the American Society of Equity on the price of the 1905 tobacco crop la rather gloomy The letter was made publlv by Gov Wlllson New York Jan 9 1908 Mr R K Smith In care Leaf r The DepartmentI Dear Mr SmithI have your letter iCof the sixth inst enclosing proposi tion made by you for the American Tobacco Company to the Society of 1Equity for certain tobacco now Ha or control of the Society of Equity I note also that It has been suggested by the Society of Equity and agreed to by you that there be a conference between a committee of the Society of Equity and the oil r1cers of the company here Duke has not been well for some days and is not at his office I have not been able to confer with t Dula the vice president of our com Ipany In charge of the manufacturing and with others of our people hero The position of our company with respect to this matter Is exactly what It has been ever since there was ran orglnazatlon comprising some of the farmers and leaf dealers of the J Burley District of Kentucky We jhave no prejudice against or In favor of the Society of Equity or any other society or nsRneJnilnnof farmers or leaf dealers You are particularly in charge of the purchase of leaf to i 1baco your statement of facts are the company here and your good ent of value If not accepted ab lotJof Is given very great consid A consideration of the ex of our needs the extent of our storage faculties and the condition iiiof the leaf market Induce our people to agree with you that It Is not de 4sirable to make a purchase of not t exceeding 10000000 pounds of Burley tobacco at present from any one whether the Society of Equity or any other Our understanding Is that you t have made an offer for 10000000 t pounds and that In arriving at the apdif faring an amount for various grades of tobacco Identical with the amount j being offered and paid for the same grades to otherdealers and on the 1 tobacco breaks at Louisville kind Cincinnati giving the consideration t to the difference If any In the con oditiop of the tobacco now held by Society of Equity as compared that now being offered by other i and on the breaks Our un f IJHWltb is that this offer has been this condition our people here very little prospect that anything 4will be accomplished by a conference between a committee representing ffthe Society of Equity and our officers VJ here In New York Just as no con dltlonB exist that would induce us Jtp discriminate against the Society of r Equity or any tobacco held by it r nothing exists either to lead us to Wdiscrlminate against the dealers and f iJ1yv iil farmers who are not members of the Society of Equity and tobacco held by them and there would be discrimina tion against them If we paid more for the tobacco held by the Society of Equity then we offer and pay for the same grades and qualities of tobacco held by others- Notwithstanding this our people here will at any time confer with any committee representing an organiza tion of farmers and if under the cir cumstances I have stated which I state simply aa the mouthpiece of those of uor good people who have actual authority in the matter the Society of Equity desires to confer here they have only to communicate it by telegram stating when their committee will arrive and our people will be glad to freely and frankly discuss the whole matter Very truly yours J PARKER AUGUST 1015 Date Chosen fon Blue Grass Fair and Circuit of Other Fairs to be Formed The annual meeting of the

to say it took courage to go and see her they were so sure of being net by acomplaint This went on until she was over thirty Then one day she ead the story of a great naval disaster when the officers knowing that their ship must go down before the enemy set the band to playing the flags to flying and dressed in full uniform with their white gloves on waited to go down with their ship As she read the story she grew ashamed of herself How had she met disaster Never nth anything but tears and complaints I wont be as Ihave been any more she said to herself When troubles come to me thougH I perish as those officers did I will meet them as they dIdwith flags flylngthe band playing and my white gloves on And ever so many troubles did come toi her you may be sure as they always come to those who boast but every time she met a new one she said to herself The flags must fly today the band play and I must have my white gloves on Some WorkIseemed to make a visit see a sick friend or to perform some act of cheerful kind nessAnd now after ten years what has she to show for it all If you ever to meet her you would say she was sail ing only smooth and pleasant seas Good things come to her she
