If your slumbers are disturbed by the early sunlight you get a few hours extra sleep on June 17. Ac cording to the Almanac we are to have a total eclipse of lhe sun on that date and it will be so dark that the chickens will go to roost. The eclipse will begin at 6 o'clock a. m. It will not be necessary to get up early to see the eclipse, for the moon will keep right along with the sun nearly all day. This will also be the day for the new moon, or the time that we see only a little bright ring, or rather a half ring. Just how the moon can hide so much of the sun at a time so little of the moon itself is visible .to us will be a question for the school boys to discuss, The Railroad Situation FMUitrnn Owner J. II.

He was a native of Bowling Green, Ky.( and was 5ft years old. It is said he cleared $50,000 from the song "All Coons Look Alike to Me," of which he was (he composer. The "Father of Waters" is slow ly but surely underminining the roadbed of the N. U a St. U railroad along the north side of this city, and it cannot be many weeks at most before the company will be compelled to adandon this track; thus cutting themselves off from the depot and Old Hickman. Antic! pating the worst, the railroad com pany has caused a survey to be made around the south part of town, which is the only way they can reach their West Hickman tracks and the depot, and an effort is being made to secure a Whether this will be done or not remains to be seen. An option has been secured on the property covered by the survey at figures as shown above. This option expires this month, and owing to the extreme high prices'asked for some of this property, it is more than likely the proposition to go around will fail. If it does, the result will be that the trains will again be stopped in East Hickman, on the old de pot site. The result of such a move by the railroad as affecting the town's is at once apparent. There's nothing in the argument to the effect that the road can be compelled to go to West Hickman.

At Buena Vista by truiiint movement he snatched m .MAW $11 i m vV for the "corporate limits of Hick-maonly, and they will comply with these conditions when they stop in East Hickman. So this, "big stick" Is merely a straw. So far as the business of our factories is concerned, it might not be sufficient inducemenf to cause them to make an Investment of $25,000 to take care of it. Tnis particular class of freight is handled on a very narrow margin, owing to river competition. The passenger and local freight business undoubtedly pays the best dividend and this they will continue to hold regardless of where they may locate the depo't. What they lose on this will be counterbalanced by the saving of interest on the investment of $25,000 and the permanent cost of maintenance, mileage, etc. When figuring on these propositions, the railroad company always puts the tail iq wjth. the hide. Should, the depot he located in East Hickman, as intimated by the management in a personal letter to a person of this city because of excessive demands of the property owners, it will cripple our business interests to a large extent. It doesn't necessarilly mean that oqr factories would pull out though this is an unknown quantity be-cause the Mengel Box .Co. has a direct river route for their s. But in short, the town will feel the effects of it in more ways than one. It would not only be a waste of space, but superfluous to enten a discussion of this point. Any thinking man will foresee ,the manifold disadvantages resulting from it. Gen. H. A. Tyler, who is a representative citizen, always looking after the town's interests, and at the same time a man experienced in corporation management, has been asked by the railroad to assist in removing the "straw that breaks the camel's back" by soliciting some concession in the price of these op tions. The figures above will show that the price per acre asked for the grounds in question is approximately $500 per. Therefore V would seem that the damage sustained is four times greater than the value of the land. The land could doubtless be condemned and gotten for about less, but the road is disinclined to go into the courts with the matter. We want jt undestood that we are for our home folks first, last and all the time but we believe the city's interests are at stake and that the matter should have the serious consideration of its citizens if we likely to lose the road from the business and factory districts. In this case the old adage might be appropriately applied "A stitch in time will save nine." r ship-menttwo-thir- n" V).

Now, I have talked with Cary nnd Kndlcott Tracy and my plan is to call up Varnebold, his next friend, who knows bis volco and knows he Is a trusty man (for Mercer has dono some inquiries for htm and saved him once from buying a water-loggesteel plant) to call him up and tell him the truth. We can say Mr. Kcatcham was mysteriously stabbed; wo can ask what is best to do. Dy that timq wc can report that wo liavo tho best med leal assistance young Arnold will get hjs, family physician, who can be trusted. Warnebold will instruct Mercer, I reckon, to keep the fact ot tho assault a secret, not even mention that Mr, Kcatcham is 111; and very likely ho or some ono else will coma straight on here. Meanwhile, young Arnold can open tho house, hire some servants who won't talk I can get them for him; wo all say nothing ot tho magnate s presence. And the bull market will como all right." After a llttlo reflection the colonel agreed that tho bold courso was tho safest. Thus it camo about, with amazing rapidity, that tho haunted liouso was opened; that sleek, smiling Chinamen whisked brooms and cleaning cloths at open windows; and Haley and Klto frankly told any curious In quirers who hailed them over tho lawn nnd tho flower-bedthat young Mr. Arnold was coming homo nnd going to ot friends.

Regarding Rorert tho detective, Winter bad what he called "a stlft think;" he could not afford even the remote risk ot his going with the pic turesque assortment of Information which ho had obtained about Casa Fuerte nnd Mercor, Into Atkins' em ploy; therefore ho hired him, still, himself.

Mercer sent three, or four telegrams a day to Seattle and to New York, to Keatcham's associates. Several times he held a conversation of Importance Over the telephono with tho man who acted as distributor ot Intelligence. Warnebold, himself, came on to San Francisco from Seattle, and was received wth every courtesy. Ho questioned Klto, questioned Mercer, questioned tho colonel. Tracy had effaced himself and was In Pasadena for a day or two. The colonel was the star witness (at least this was young1 Arnold's verdict). His narrative was to the effect that he had gone out to see Mercer, who was a family connection; no, he was not alone, ho had a young friend with him; confidentially, ho would admit that tho friend was Mr. Tracy's son; and, while he could not be sure, he had reason to suspoct that he, "young Tracy," had been conducting some delicate negotiations with Mr. Keatch-am- . At this point the Interlocutor nodded slightly; he was making the deductions expected and explaining to himself Keatcham's astonishing communication over the telephone. So, he was surmising shrowdly, that was the clew; the old man had bgen making Tracy some sort ot a deal with through the son; well, thoy were protected, thanks to Keatcham's orders. Likely as not they never would know all the reasons for this "X understand, then," he said, as one who holds a clew but has no notion of letting it slip out ot his own fingers, "you and young Tracy got here and you found Mr. Keatcbam? How did you get In? Did Mr. Mercer let you In? How did It happen ho didn't dis cover Mr. Keatchnm Instead of you, or did you come In on the side?1 Mrs. Winter, wbo was in the room, had a diversion ready, but it was not needed; the colonel answered unbesl tatlngly, with a frank smile: "No, we came In ourselves; young Tracy had a thought It was time .to put a stop td so much excitement, so ho sent for tho second assassin " "And had him arrested?"' "Oh, dear, no; ho wasn't In Massachusetts; I told you be wanted the thing stopped. No, ho sent for him and told him that he bad no. special 111 feeling toward htm, but that the next time anything of the kind happened ho had made arrangements to havo not him, or any other thug who was doing the work, but tho two men who were at tho bottom of the whole business, killed within 24 hours. They took tho hint and kind feeling now prevails."

On Monday afternoon, from 3 to 5, Mrs. T. A. Ledford entertained about 45 of her lady friends at Rook and Raffles. Ten tables were arranged for the players and special interest was manifest throughtout the games. As the gu e s t s arrived, Reo punch was served. Later a delicious salad course played an important pait. This occasion was commemorative of Mr. and Mrs. Ledford's 16th wedding anniversary, and their many friends were profuse in extending there best wishes. Mrs. Ledford was such a good hostess that some of the ladies did not make their departure at 5 o'clock, but, knowing this good lady as we do, they could not be blamed. It Is evident to all that the profit must come from the feed over and above that which the cow requires for maintenance, and that the more she eats the greater will be the profit. There are many good cows In the country tbst are not recojulifd as such, and cannot be made profitable unless they recelvo more feed. There Is no profit In f eodlng partial rations to milch cows. We cannot get profitable results running cow on "30 pounds of steam." If thero Is a food shortage, ope might better feed full rations to halt tho number rather than feed the many on halt rations. In the latter case there will bo much work and little profit. In the former, the cows are sure to give profitable returns, and the labor of caring for the herd would be much lessened. Milk Milk from Either 8lde. Cows are always mllkod from the off or right side because they have been taught that way. A cow can be milked from either side If she Is brought up right, but tho lessons must begin at the earliest handling of the heifer. Milk first from one side und then the other, and In a short time the heifer will not mind. It often comes handy to milk from the left side and the cows should bo trained to stand for It. The man who will make a pet of bis cow will have no trouble and will get greater benefit at milking Urns than the one who treats her as a fctranw, IX not as enemy.

A lecture on Clover, Alfalfa and Soil Acidity, by one of the State Lecturers, and a permanent Qood Roads Organization, will be the leading features of this meeting.

John A. Mcclure, Secy. Will Johnson, a young negro residing on the farm of Walter Wade, a well known farmer of this county, was tried last week in the court of Esq. R. A. Browder, on a charge of disturbing public worship, and was fined $55.00 and the costs. has been a corresponding increase in all varieties of boots and shoes. Say that it has been 20 per cent and see what that means to your family of four, which can spend but $40 a year on clothes and must put $11.81 of it on shoes. But why should shoes increase in cost? They ought to decrease, such has been the exTraordjnary advance; in shoe machinery and methods. This hard- skip comes from the tariff on hides In 1897 by the Dingley bill. And why a traiff on hides?

A few of our farmer friends are opposed to the establishment of an automobile line between Hickman and 'Fulton because the gasoline buggy will scare their horses.

The auto has come to stayvrhether this line is established or not and the sooner the horses become accustomed to them the better. Groceries Moore. and meat. C. Numberless men, alleged to be hurt by overwork, do cot work half enough. Their trouble comes from superabundance of leisure and activity. They yawn through three or four hours in the office or counting room i are too indolent to walk up town ; eat too heavy and rich a dinner i go out afterwards to see merchants, bankers and the like, join boon companions who walk around billiard tables or sit at cards, and keep very thirsty until the drowsy steeples toll two and three. This is overwork, but overwork in the wrong direction, and of a very different kind from that supposed. Qver-wot- k covers a multitude of bad habits; it is made a scapegoat pr countit is very ofless, transgressions, ten a shallow pretense, a miserable sham. While there are far too many who overwork, there are a great many that break down and kill themselves by laziness, self indulgence and dissipation. Very decidedly overwork is overdone.

None of the boats exceed 60 feet in length, and are used principally for scout and messenger service. The three little boats composing this "mosquito fleet" are the Lieut. Edgar F. Keohler, the Lieut. Wm. H.Smith and the Lieut. Wm. C. Neary. Capt. Hitchcock is com modore of the fleet and has the distinction of supervising one of the most unique v yages ever made by a vessel in the service of Uncle Sam, The boats were stationed at Muskegon, Mich., when sailing or ders were received, with instructions to proceed to their stations via4' the old Illinois and Michigan canal. ' The canal was originally six feet in depth, but has fallen into ill repair and now th: average depth is only 4 feet, 6 Inches. All of the boats drew 5 feet 10 inches of water when e dismantled of stack, and fuel.

Moore wants your grocery to assist them in securing better trade. highways. The Bosworth Wyatl Good Roads Amendment to the Constitution of Kentucky, which passed the last Kentucky legislature by its almost unanimous vote and which is to be voted on at the next November General Election of 1909, by the voters of Kentucky, is as follows, to-w- DAY OR NIGHT Cowgill's Drug Store (Incorporated) Alfalfa vs. Wheal. story comes from Omaha that' threatens to make the wheat market stand on its hind legs with excitement if it is ever confirm ed. It is said that at Crelghton University experiments have recently been made with alfalfa as a substitute for the Mng of grains in the making ot bread. The experiments are reported as proving eminently successful, and the quality of bread is most palatable and resulting nutritious. The alfalfa is especially selected for its quality, and after the leaves and portions of the stems have been ground In a mill, it is bolted. From this process comes a meal almost as fine as flour, and of a rich brown color. By means of a bleaching process it is finely brought to a creamy tint, which in the loaf that is bakeJ presents a most attractive and appealing appearance. Varieties of eatables, including gems, pancakes, and other familiar compositions of white flour, have been made from the new meal with gratifying results to the student discoverers. When it is remembered that two, three and even four crops of alfalfa. may be grown in a single year, the possibilities of this new food product will be realized. Gentlemen like Mr. Patten, who attempt to comer the wheat market, will now find themslves faced with a rival and substitute that may render all their efforts abortive. Hitherto alfalfa has been looked upon simply as a most valuable crop for cattle food. If the Crelghton university Aitaita uud makes gooa on its alleged discovery it will have marked a new epoch, and added to the world's food supply a practically inexbaustable source upon which to draw.

If this Constitutional Amendment receives a majority of the votes al the election in November, it will then be possible for Kentucky to pass such a system of Good Roads Laws as are in effect in the States of New York, New Jersy, Connecticut, Michigan, Massachusetts, California and Pennsylvania, and in fact every other Mate where progress and ad vancement is being made in build ing and mantaining good roads, while our own Kentucky is at a standstill. Illinois is not working her convicts on the roads, but keeps (hem engaged in the preparation of road material, which is given to the var ious counties upon the mere cost of transportation. In California a similar plan Is in vogue, the convicts being engaged in the. preparation of road materials at Folsom. Hundreds of thousands of tons of such material can be prepared in a year, and the counties may secure it at the bare cost of production and transportation. Up to date, Massachusetts has ex oended more cash monev in iraorov Ing her roads than any other State except New York, which great State has authorized a bond issue of $50,- 000,000, that enormous sum to be ex pended at the rate of $5,000,000 per year for ten years. Twenty four States of the Union California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Mlchl gan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island. Vermont, Washihgton, Virginia, West Virginia and Wisconsin, have appropriated on araverage $2,329, 325, to be used, as specified by their different Legislature, inthe building and maintaining of public highways. Little Rhode Island s appropriation up to 1908 inclusive has been SI,- 670,000, and New Jersey, another small State, has appropriated up to 1907 inclusive $2,995,000. New Mexico, being a young but progressive State, comes in with the smallest appropriation up to 1907 inclusive with $15,000. Let the farmers who will assemble at the Court House in Hickman on the fifth of May Saturday and at Fulton on the twelfth in a Good Roads Convention, take the initiative in this commendable movement by organizing an aggressive Good Roads Organization and get busy, and Fulton County will come to the front as an enterprising and aggressive unit in our beloved Common wealth.
