It wns nlong In August that I did this Investigating, ny thnt tlmo the talks were perhaps fully grown; tho. plant had, In fact, dono almost all It could do In tho way of growth. AH thnt wa lo.'t waa to bring tho cars to perfection. With a good hoo nnd a. pick I carefully traced tho roots ot two hills ol corn, one In ono row nnd oflo In that adjoining, directly opjioslte tho first one. I had not Kono" far When I mado my first discovery. And that was that I had all my life long been hurting my corn crop by using cultivators that ripped things up awny down Into the earth. That seemed to be tho thought in early times, to dig down as deep as possible. Tho first cultivator I remem bcr seeing was ono with n stiff, rigid frame, bolted together so firmly that It could not be adjusted to tho width of tho rowB. Tho teeth of that cultivator wero long, scoop-sho- t el shaped things, running deep by naturo; and wo used to think wo ought to shove them down bait way to China or we were not doing anything worth while. Now, I discovered that all, or almost all. such work does Is tojear the flno roots of tho corn plnntfloose. really setting it back, instead jet furthering It progress. M After that cultivator, Same another still more Illy contrived? so far as Its use In tho cornfield Is concerned, than the first. That we knew aa tho horse-ho-e, a good tool In it place, but that place Is not, and novoj was, tho cornfield. That had a regular. shovel plow running ahead, with two legs following, and two more that might be put on If a man wanted to do atlll grcator damage to his corn crop. r Tho thing that impressed Itself 6n mo wag, that only light cultivation"! needed In tho cornfield. What we need is a tool that will thoroughly dig up the soli on the surface and. not run more than two or three Inches deep. Another dlicovery I mode was that the roots of tho corn plant aro not all directly under the stalks. I found them far out In every direction, llko tbo roots of a big tree. A little thought will tell us why thla should b'o so. Tho cornstalk Is heavy, especially when It is Well laile'n with ears. 'When' the wind strlkea It, there Is a strong pur chase and it not well braced, the whole hill Is likely to go over. 1 .remember how this worked one year when we were troubled- terribly, by tho gray grub which works at the root of tho cornstalk. (Hundreds of cornstalks went down In our Held that year;, und .always when we' dug down at tho baso of tho stalks we found that tho small roots had been cut off by tbo grub. Nature Is wise. Sho provides tho corn plant with wide- spreading roots. Still another reason for. this Is to bo found In tho fact that corn needs a great deal of fertilizer to bring It to maturity.

The kidneys filter the blood. They work night and day. When healthy they remove about 500 grains of impure matter daily, when unhealthy some part of this impure matter is left in the blood. This brings on many diseases and symptoms pain in the back, headache, nervousness, hot, dry skin, rheumatism, gout, gravel, disorders of the eyesight and hearing, dizziness, irregular heart debility, drowsiness, dropsy, 'deposits in the urine, etc. But if you keep the filters right you will have no trouble with your kidneys.

During the Grand Jury's investi gatio" of the night rider troubles, last week, it leaked from the court room, in Union City, that one of the four witnesses during the morning session gave evidence which connects the gang that murdered the negro family near Hickman, Ky., with the one that murdered Capt. Rankin. The evidence is so convincing, it is claimed, that the assembling places were given for the various raids. On the night cf the Hickman raid the meeting point was in the depths of Buck Esque woods and from there the band rode forth on its errand of murder. The witness said s "On the night of the Walnutlog raid, one section of the night ri ders also met in these woods and then rode to 'Long Bridge,' where it joined forces with the other gang from the Spout Springs section, whose garthering lias been described in the confession of Frank Ferringer, From there they went to Ward hotel." The evidence is of special importance as it joins in with that of Ferringer and .will be used against those from the section where the night-rideare alleged to have flourished, and with which he is so unfamiliar. It also developed during the testimony that John McBird, the young during the man who disappeared raid on the negroes near Hickman has never called for his clothes at the place where he had been living and has disappeared from the neighborhood. The state has so far been unable to discover any trace of his whereabouts, which gives additional weight to the theory that he was killed. These facts substantiate what the Courier claimed at the very first that 'the riders who shot the Walker family ' came from Tennessee but was questioned by some. When Gov. Patterson spoke at Union City, Thursday, several of our leading citizens went ever for the purpose of conferring with the governor on this subject, and are said to have offered, at the proper time, to give some valuable Information, More semations are forthcoming. rs Criminal Libel Suit.

Stranger Found Dead. Reinh Grave, aged about 50 years, was found dead at the fair grounds near Mayfield, Friday forenoon. Grave was a stranger there, having been in the city but a few days, and from whence he came is not known. From papers found on his It person his name was learned. was also ascertained that he had once worked for the Texas and New Orleans railroad, in last May, and previous to that was a cook on a sea craft, having in his possession a' note, written in German, showing, under date of July 16, 1906, it had been given him for service on a Bremen sailing vessel. This note was read to the coroner's jury by August Graf, the tailor, who explained that Grave was from Holland. There were no marks on the dead man's body and every indication was that he had come to his death from natural causes, perhaps from the cold of the night. Little One Dies.

A strict rule provides that anonymous letters of warning shall be sent to every person coming under the ban of the clan. This is considerate at least. Anonymous letters must have sanction of the "General" and must all be written by the same person in a lodge. The reason seems obscure. Letters must be posted at least two counties away from the lodge in which they originate. Reason obvious. Who is the night rider? I reiterate he is your neighbor not always a hoodlum. He is your neighbor's son, and our neighbor's sons are not all hoodlums. He is your own son, perhaps : and none of our sons are hoodlums. He is a night rider because he believes his quarrel is just not because he is criminal at heart. He is moved by the same spirit that moved our fathers and forefathers to desert home and fireside to take up arms in a struggle they believed was just. He is misled deluded into setting aside in a moment of passion, all that his forefathers bled for; all the victory of a revolution and all the traditions of a century of development, when he takes the solemn oath of death to avenge his real and fancied wrongs with the rifle, the torch and the lash.
