THE F Sof Eo COLUMN fII H BY JAS M SAUNDERs LHOAL WEIGHTS Some of our members are again agitating the question of how much corn makes a legal bushel Over a year ago our county union appointed a committee to Investigate this matter E C and Joe Carter reported that they shelled a frjshel of corn and found that In good corn It took about 72 Ibs of dry corn In the shuck to make 56 Ibs of ihelled corn but If the corn was poor chat rYe damp or sappy that it took moreII than 72 pounds to make a bushel of shelled corn Your scribe was appointed to make some investigation and on PiCeI 652 of the Yearbook of the Department of AgriCUltur published by the United States government for the year 1905 he found that Alabama Arkansas Colorado Georgia Illi nois Iowa Kansas Kentucky Mln nlsota Michigan Montana Nebras kat North Dakon Oklahoma Rhode Island South Dakota Tcnueeeee t Texas and Virginia have declared that 70 lbs of husked corn make att legal bushel Mississippi requites t 72 lbs and Ohio M

be satis led but at the same time we should be sallsfted with nothing lest AgricultureIwas mistaken when he said our stat theyerealty did net we ought to hunt up the history show when the act was

we stand by that right And not only so we believe farmers may cooperate as others do and may combine their crops and sell together if they may therefore better secure an equitable price but we cannot

declared it could not have been by the members of the A S of E and as president of the organisation we offered a cash reward for the apprehtl lion and conviction of any guilty of such outragesWe

pardon us if we make a dismal failure in our first attempt to preach a sermon You will nod our text in the bible It is not necessary to give the chap ter and verse but look for it InI brief it is this Spend some of your evenings at home with your wife and If you have an amiable gentle wile surely your home must a pleasant one but if from increasing care or other reasons she has grown fretful or sullen who knows but a little more attention or kindness on your part might do a great deal towards the return of the amiability you so much admired in her girlhood If you would stay at home oftener evenings treating her something of the old tender ness making her believe at least you are not wholly indifferent to her happiness you would soon see a change for the better in your I hCMIICholdII She has not forgotten the time if ou have not very long ago per when her society was all you I for to make he long evenings I delightfully away Loving you she did the would have gone on I rough life in the same quiet way contented and happy But alas YM soon grew tired of the same I room evening after evening the snare easy chafe and the saddest of l weary of the society of your wife impatient of the restraints of home longing for a change So you spend your evenings away meeting nany companionable fellows who en tertain you with wit song and wine you fancy yourself delighted charmed Perhaps there are moments of reflection when cease once seems whispering to you of the pure holy influences of home which you have so recklessly and unfeel i ingly cast away from you Your lonely wife sits by the fireside watching and waiting for your return through the hours that drag slowly along listening eagerly to every footfall starting at every sound tearing she knows not what yet conscious always of the weary heart ache that seems wearing her life 1I 1 Evening after evening she watches j your preparations for departureI meanwhile I hoping youwl11 and stay at home with her ButII you hastily don your bat and coatII turning your back resolutely towards her fearing to encounter that gaze wistful entreaty for you know she jj- Is watching you with tears silently rolling down her pale cheeks You 1 know it still you do not think best i to notice it for you dislike a scene 1 Tears annoy you exceedingly so you close the door perhaps with a 1 bang trying hard to feel very in dignant towards her for daring to weep even behind your back So the lonely wife brushes away the t falling tears and sits down with bit t terness in her heart to compare the last years of her married life to 1 those first ones made so bright and t happy by her husbands love and feelingsnilthat dear oil home she left for this I- onetbe home that sheltered her childhood and yours i and as she thinks of her beloved parents herII brothers and sisters the light the warmth and love in the old home stood no wonder she bows her head and weeps by her lonely fireside like a grieved homesick child OfJj course no husband in Hickman acts t- In this manner i if they did we ouldII suggest that their wives read to them this sermon as so near the first of a new year is a good time to begin j a change A GREAT EVIL 1 Our race groans under evils and I carries burdens heavy to be borne Some of these may be traced back to the first sin and are beyond our control i but most of them are of our own producing and may be arrested J by a resolute act of the will or byI aids which comes from other sources Two evils now fill the land andI world which are of human invention and are sustained by human author ity One of these is alcoholic drinks and the other is tobacco Of the latter we will say a few words This has grown and overspread the nations of the earth till now it chal lenges observation reflection andI the exercise of enlightened consience whilt looking the facts in the face Such is its extent that many millions acres are occupied in its growth producing millions of tons annually and costing the human race fifteen thousand millions of dollars HowI appalling such a state of things whllo want and suffering are all around us Yet this enormous expenditure is entirely useless No one claims that he is

the chief compositor the ince boy and the devil to pay He was in debt the deepest to the devil and was more interested indlsoharg ing that obligation than all others The compositor was a meekeyed girl of sixteen summers who would nave gone for six months or a year without receiving a penny just for the sake of getting her fingers dirty and playing the editor The office boy was a good natured soul the only defect there was about him that really made against him was his freckles and red hair otherwise he sympathisedjHe knew the funds were short and so he told the editor if he could give him twentyfive cents he could wait for the rest he didnt sty how long You know when a man works for a thing and earns it he should have it but the boy was willing and the edt tor was also i but the devill how could his bill be met There were two hundred subscrib ers that owed him for two years and fifty more had ordered their paper discontinued owing him for one year back pay and were borww ing it from some of these two hun dred The devil needeJ his money His wife must have a new dress the children shoes the grocery bill bad not been paid for nlnty days and the doctor bad sent two statements with in the last month The machine stopped and all knew it was time to close The three looked at the editor and editor looked at the three not a word was uttered The compositor and the office boy suddenly slipped out and left the editor and the devil still facing each other in mute despair Finally the editor broke the awful silence and said Bill you want some money dont your MYes sir II There was not the least doubt in the ring of his voice Iweyou twentyfive dollars dont nil Yet sir was Bills answer Well Bill I have just seventylive teats and Ill give you= Say nun I cant Just then Deacon Saow came in and noticed the Rushed look on the editors face and the sold stare on the devils face Now Dea con Snow was a pious roan a great believer in prayer tbo his dally conduct was not in strict accord with his loud profession That man could look as much like a saint and talk like an archangel but that event tg he was stumped and asked What Is the matter my friend addressing the editor The editor answered in broken accents t I have come face to face with the devil and find that he has a bill against me which I am unable to pay I am sorry as a man can be I would do anything to pay it and be free my heart Is sad- Deaoen Snow bad been hoping for a long time to get the editor into toll church Now he thot that the time had come He forgot that the editor had a devil in his office and under stood him to be alluding to Satan or Devil and the debt that he owed as the sins which he had committed against the Lord So to assist the seeming penitent Deacon Snow pro posed to pray Pray shouted i praybutI and ninetynine other delinquents would pay I could square upwith the devil and there would be no hud feeling and I would have a little sur plus to carry home Its this man I owe and want to pay This touched the tender chord in the Deacons heart and out of his pocket come two shining silver dol tats which the devil got The Dea con made a good missionary for the next day one hundred and
