CAYCE, KENTUCKY Although the new cap-Ithas been occupied only a little more than two years, the state departments have already outgrown the building, and during the next few weekB there will be a general shifting of offices. Several of the departments which now have offices In the new capltol will be moved to "the old executive building and the old state house, to make room for come of the newly created departments which, on account of their relations with the auditor anU treasurer, must be located near the state officea. It la proposed now to move the agricultural department the board of control of charitable Institutions, the prison commission, the historical society and perhaps other departments, which are Independent In themselves, to tho old executive building, which will be put In repair and Improved until It Is In good and attractive shape. Several of the departments that ae to bo moved really would prefer being located In the old buildings, as it would be more convenient for the headB of the departments. The state has $15,000 to make repairs and Improvementa In the old buildings, and It is believed that with this money the offices can be made as comfortable and attractive as thoy aro In the new capltol. With the several departments out of the new building the newly created departments can be Installed. There Is the supervisor of auditor's agents, for Instance, who must have an office close to the auditor, on account of the necessity cansultatlon for frequent with the auditor and the records of the office. The Insurance commissioners also must be located near the auditor, and It la proposed to have this offlco where the historical society now is locnted. The file room of the secretary of state, on tho first floor of the capltol, Is to be divided Into two offices, one of which will be occupied by the commissioner of Confederate pensions. No action has been taken by the cnpltol commission regarding who Is to be moved, but the matter will bo settled In the next few days. W. A.

Under the above title the Maine agricultural experiment station has Issued Bulletin 192, which summarizes all of the results of the experiments which bare been carried on at the station during the last 13 ycara In attempting to ImproTe by breeding the average egg production of a strain of Barred Plymouth Rock poultry. An account la siren of the results of the earlier experiments In selecting the high et producers as breeders without regard to any other qualities than their trap nest records. It is shown that this plan of breeding failed to obtain any distinct Improvement In flock production. The experiments of the station to find out whether continued artificial incubation and brooding hat a. harmful effect on egg production are described. The effect of Inbreeding on egg production la discussed qn the bafls of extensive experimental records. This Is followed by a clear and simple explanation of a new plan of breeding which has been tried during the cast fire yeara. and which is based upon the conception that high egg pro ductiveness is Inherited In certain "blood lines" and not In others, and that by a proper system of pedigree selection It Is possible to Isolate the high producing lines. Tbe last section of the bulletin is deroted to an exposition of the gratifying success which has attended the application of this new plan of breeding to the station flock. Strains which hare high egg productiveness fixed as a definite character hare now been obtained and are being propagated at the station.

Often on a farm where turkeys are raised right along with the chickens and other poultry, It Is desirable to feed them heavier than the other poultry, yet suitable means of doing so are not available without a fenced yard to separate them, writes P. C. Gross of Ohio in the Prairie Farmer. In such cases the following contrivance serves admirably: trough, of ImmaA small terial length, Is elevated by means of supports to a height that will allow the turkeys to stand on the floor and pick from It, yet be too high to permit the chickens and small fowls do ing likewise. Three or four Inches above the top of the trough a board, as wide as the trough. Is attached flat wice. This prevents the chickens from flying up and standing on the edge of the trough.

Suddenly he halt ed, and challaaged hoarsely, flinging forward his gun. There was an answer, and as I straightened up the figure of a man blotted but the doorway. "Major Lawrence"? ' "Yea.

"The Fo'tts hornet" "Yes, sir." I dressed hastily, my pulses throbbing with eagerness. Whatever the message meant, there was certainly some purpose of vital importance la vending for me at this unusual hour, and I waa boy enough still to welcome any form of active service. No duty of the war had ao tried me as the long winter of waiting. Yet, rapidly aa I moved, the orderly had disappeared before I got outaldo, and I picked mj way aa best J could alone through the darkness, along the rear of Mcintosh's g huts, until I reached the low fence the Potts house. Here a sentinel challenged, calling the corporal bf the guard, and In his company I trudged up tho path to the front door. There waa a light ahowlng through th window to the left, although the shade waa closely drawn, and a guard stood within the halL At the first sound of our approach, however, a side door waa flung open, letting forth a gleam of Illumination, and I perceived the short, alight figure of Hamilton, as he peered forward to get a better gllmpao of my face.

"I had not yet fallen asleep," I explained, "but we are all eager enough for action of any description." He smiled cheerily. "You will soon be busy, never fear." He closed the door behind us, and, with a glance, I viewed the room and Its occupants. It waa a small, low cetllnged apartment, containing a table, a few chairs and a high commode. A fow coals glowed in the wide fireplace, and the walla were dingy with smoke. Three candles, already burning low, gave fitful illumination, revealing four occupants, all known to me. At an open door to the right stood a sweet-facewoman, glancing hack curiously at my entrance, and I whipped off my hat bowing low.

Education of Youth Will Be Far From Complete Unless He Has Made Study of Wonderful Plant-Obj- ects of Work. d In most of the territory now by the- Farmers' Demonstration Work, cotton is the principal crop grown by the farmers. The education of a southern boy will be far from complete unless ho has made a study of this wonderful plant which does so much to clotho the world, and which in recent years Is becoming Important as a source of oil Sufficient Investigations and feed. have been made and trials had to convince us that there Is a need and demand for cotton clubs. The objects of the Boys' Demonstration Work aw First, to afford the rural teacher a simple and easy method of teaching practical agriculture la the schools In the way it must be acquired to be of any real service, namely, by actual work upon the fann.-Seconto prove that there la more in the soli than the farmer has ever gotten out of it; to Inspire boya with a love of the land by showing how they can get wealth out of It by tilling It la a better way and thus be helpful to the family and the neighborhood. Third, to give the boya a definite, worthy purpose and to stimulate a friendly rivalry among them. These objects were stated in the beginning, and the boys' corn clubs organized In pursuance thereof, opened the eyea of 'the south to its possibilities In the production of corn and have stimulated an Interest in agriculture and especially In the produc-xtlon of home supplies. Practical les sons like the lessons In any system of education must be progressive. Hence we believe the time has arrived when a few of the best of the corn club boys can progress from corn production to cotton production and thus widen their useful knowledge and at the some time give them a basis for a thorough system of, modern ag riculture. The lessons of preparation, seed selection, and intensive cul tivatlon will be continued as applied ot cotton and in boll weevil sections they will be shown the department's method of raising cotton under boll weevil conditions. As In the case ot the boys' corn clubs, where the work la being organized the county superintendent of education and teachers, can best reach the boys In all sections of the country and thus can the teacher best be able to maintain Interest In things of the farm and the boys to acquire valuable knowledge The lessons of diversification will be made prominent It will thus become an easy matter to impress the members of the clubs with practical and economic principles of farming such aa abandonment of the system of raising all cotton and the using of more acres lor food crops, more for soil Improving crops and relatively less for cotton In each general farm plan. The advent of tho boll weevil makes such a system Imperative No better agoncy can be found to teach these great lessons than the energetic, persevering southern boys who have made such t great success in the corn clubs Nor la It proposed that Interest in the corn clubs shall be allowed to decroase. It Is suggested that the cotton clubs be organized as an advanced class. The boy who has made a study of corn for one, two, or three ears Is far more competent to take up the more complicated study of cotton. It la recommended therefore that boys entering our clubs for the first time be urged to 1nln thn corn clubs and that th mi. ton dubs be organized, so far aa pea-- 1 cov-ero- "MORr FOR YOUR MONEY" " & (By BRADFORD KNAPI ' n "h 7 m 90 T i S'!
