KSf lunicipnl Govnrnnrn Now that the citizens of Hickman have chosen candidates for Mayor Police Judge and Council men the question will naturally arise are they of efficient and will they act witn an eye single to the many improvements that naturally present them selves during the period covered by such bodies This the city will de mand and expect at their hands Will they see to the sanitary condition of the city and insist on the ordinances that call for clean liness Will they appoint a mar shal that will see that swine are kept off the streets and all other nuisances abated In short will they do their whole duty impartially regardless of who may be adversely affected by their administration of the affairs of the city Of course they are not yet elected but it is hardly probable that any opposition will interview and since it is tacitly understood at least that the candidates for the next council have been chosen along reform lines this admonitary article may be timely if somewhat prema ture It has been suggested that two officials be chosen by the incoming body of councilmen one as marshal and tax collector and the other to have charge of the water light and street system but in an interview with those who are acquainted with the resources from which the revenue is obtained to pay for this service that that plan is not feasible The legislative rights of the city will be given into their hands upon them and those whom they may appoint to fill appointive offices rests the honor aid safety of the city and tieir constituents will look to- tnem and demand at their

terwickAt this stage of the proceedings Mr Allison Tyler called Mr Me theny to the chair and took the floor for the purpose of placing in nom ination a candidate for Police Judge as a preliminary to his choice he remarked in substance That the candidate whoso name he wishrd to present was a man that was eminently fitted for the office popular affable and respected by his fellow townsmen j that he had once been chosen by a small vote but to a man who stood so high in social and business circles it was fitting that his intrinsic worth be emphasized by a popular expression of the whole city When he finally an nounced his candidate Mr Ferd Berendes to that gentlemans con fusion and consternation the house went wild with enthusiasm and Mr Berendes was called on for a speech h was politely requested by the chair to come forward and respond to the call reminding him that he was highlyhonorgd That he was small enough now and did not care to be made smaller whether this retort to Mr Tylers irony was intended as a reflection on the office of Police Judge or Ferdies avoirdupois must we fear forever remain a secret as Ferdie has not been Known to unbosom him self of any secrets since he resigned the Presidency of the baseball club Mr J W Roney was then nom inated and chosen No other business appearing the meeting adjourned It is hoped by the Courier that all the candidates named are satisfactory to their city constituency and when elected and installed in the various offices for which they stand will carry out the specific purposes for which they have been chosen A SOME HOMES 21

cultivation is equally as desira ble for the black raspberry as for tho red raspberry because weeds between the rows interfere with the later oper ations in the berry field Whilo culti vation should

of Thule BxiKtlngi Xmv Specie chord Bxoolloitt Study for Stni1 uta A bulletin recently Issued by Cola rado college corrects the popular er ror that there are only a few kinds of bees Some people indeed think that there are only threethe honey bee bumble bee and a smaller wild species According to the authority jutquoted no less than 178 different spe cies of wild bees have been described from North America that Is including all of the country north of Panama onecomesc turo of all those bees says the New York Tribune it Is possible to under stand why tho varieties are so numer ousTho pollen of flowers has to be car rled principally by iusettethat of one flower to other flowers of the same sort in order to bring about the fer tilization end production of seed Of all the insect carriers the bees are the most Important They visit the flowers for nectar and pollen to store up in nests for their young When so doing they carry the dustlike pollen from flower to flower leaving a little of that previously gathered each time they alight on a blossom Now suppose that all bees visited Indiscriminately every sort of flower It would continually happen that tho pollen of one species of plant was left on the flower of a quite different species where it would be altogether useless It is desirable therefore that each kind of bee should visit one par ticular kind of plant or at any rate should prefer certain kinds This proves to bo more or less the case and there are many bees that never visit more than one sort of flower The number of flowers is very groat and con sequently it is not surprising to find that there are many sorts of bees In numerous instances the mouth part of the bees Is exactly suited to the flowers they visit Thus certain kinds with very long tongues can suck the nectar from long tubular flowers such as the yellow flowered currant while others with short tongues can make use of shallow flowers It Is tM case of the fox and the stork over again Although the described North Amer- Ican bees are so numerous it Is asserted that the entomologists do not know half of those existing Indeed it Is not im possible that the North American con tinent with the West Indies possesses as many as 5000 species Thus the op portunity for the student of these In sects Is very great He is absolutely certain to find In almost any part of the country species wholly new to science during his first seasons collecting In Colorado for Instance It is probable that almost any spring or summer day de voted to the search would yield new lands In New Mexico up to today 50E species have been found and of those 315 can be called new The discovery and description of new species are however only the begIn- ning of the work After this comes the most Interesting part the study of the noting habits and the relation between the bees and the flowers So the field becomes a very wide one and seems practically limitless While the oppor tunities for study are so great and of course open to all who have the time comparatively few can be expected to do much in apiology There Is no reason why many should not Interest themselves so far as to make collection or obtain specimens for the use of students but only a few will have the zeal Industry and patience to obtain a real grasp of the subject There are at present only about 13 active students of bees in the United States and some of these have done very little NOT SO STRANGE Uae of the Tocs Conic r rfctl7 Natural When Not Hampered br Shoe and StocUInc Isnt it wonderful how people that havent any arms learn to do things with their toes said a gentleman the other day according to the Detroit Free PressYes But it Isnt so strange after all when one stops to think of It replied his companion who had Just returned from the orient People In hot countries who are not used to wearing shoes often use their toes in preference to their hands Filipino women for instance carry packages and often enormous bundles on their heads in such cases if anything falls off the head to the ground the women pick It up with their toes and then pass It along to the top of their head with the hand They can do this while keeping the body rigid and in that way run no risk of upsetting the basket or whatever Is on the head Even the American babies In the orient use their toes In the same way It seems to be the natural thing to do Without the shoes the toes are free and the baby uses them the way it uses Its fingers Why not It does not know anything about the su periority of the fingers and In aI young child the toes are just as pHI able and responsive Of course it IIs- so much like a monkeys way of do fagi that the mothers are sometimes frightened at the unusual accomplish ment of their offsprings But there is nothing unnatural about It ad a regular application of shoes and atMk lags is a sure cure for the malady Toe x4eca of a Geod Thtrs lieYou ate so much too good fof 1M that 1 am always afraid

corn second a two year rotation with corn and pats and third a threes year rotation with corn oats and clover the results of the experiments show that the largest crops of corn can be raised in the three year rotation and that when limestone and steamed bone meal are applied the yield is greatly increased Where these systems have been followed for a number of years the latest yields obtained 19o4 were 4o bushels per acre with the continuous corn after oats in the two year rota tion and 75 bushels of corn after clover in the three year rotation Qn other fields on the same kind of soil where these three systems have been followed for twenty eight years the largest corn yields were 22 bushels per acre where corn has been grown continously 36 bushels of corn after oats in the two year rotation and 59 bushels of corn after clover in the three year rotation The yields of the fields thus cropp ed for twenty eight years have fal len below the yields of the fields cro ped for any ten years as follows 18 bushels deciease 4o to 25 where corn is grown continaouusly 13 bushels decreased 49 to 36 where corn fol lows oats in two year rotation and 16 bushels decrease 75 to 5o where corn

the sights we saw to be told but I will do my best to explain a few of them Daylight was not seen from eight that morning until half past five that evening Every couple carried in their hands a grease

on our return home in the flower garden The long route was taken first the Echo river and rocky mountains being decidedly the grandest sights of all in the long route The chilly water and chilly songs made you think that you had a good home but you left it we were called upon by our untiring guide to render a vocal solo so that those that were left on the banks could hear the echoes the songs that we sang were Swanee river Nearer my God to thee and the best of all Home Sweet Home Then up the Jacobs ladder we went to the vi brating hall Last rose of Summer was set with diamonds The vibra tion of voices and steps were heard for some little distances the floor of the hall was only three feet thick The rocky mountains were next to the last sight on the long route be nfore our return After climbing to the top of the mountains and loo down they seemed to be perpendi cular with rocks every way im aginable The party was glad when they reached the foot of the rocky mountains again On our return home a party of only one and fifty six was passed near thg Jacobs ladder Each and every 4 in our party seem to enjoy selves The corkcrew was 4 last sight on the long route ano hill of edgeways
