The veneer mill Is partly In operation and has been since Tuesday morning, although the ground Is yet covered with water. The veneer machines will begin operation Friday, and the balance of tho mill Monday. Things are not by any means dead around those plants, as the click of hammers and saws making the necessary repalre could be heard several days ago. The machine shop which Is driven by electric motors, la now being driven temporarily by a gas engine and repairing of machinery is bolng pushed day and night. The chief electrician of the company Is here from Louisville, also on electrical engineeer from Chicago. Within three weeks, one would hardly bo able to tell that an overflow had totally disabled these plants, as the work of cleaning up will be continued until there will bo no sign of tbe disastrous flood which we have just had.

While It might not prove to be the best under all conditions, It has given very satisfactory results undbr my conditions. Four of my sows were purchased when seven months of age. then weighing 150 pounds apiece. They were kept another month, then bred. Now they are 17 months old, have farrowed their second Utters and will weigh from 300 to 400 pounds In breed'-- g good, thrifty condition. They have been fed somewhat near the following each day per head In addition to whatever they pick up In 15 acres of woods pasture, a portion of which contains a good stand of bluegrass and white clover: Shelled corn, four pounds, shorts, one pound; bran, six pounds, tankage, one--1 fourth pound. During the winter months, when the weather Is cold and the ground bare, the amount of feed Is Increased as It Is also when the litters becomo large enough to take all of the milk that the sow can supply Just a few days before the sows are due to farrow I add a handful of oil meal per sow to their feed each day. which relieves any tendency toward constipation and causes the pigs to arrive in good shape. Cracklings would answer the same purpose. OLD TANK FOR FEED TROUGH Abandoned Kitchen Boiler Put to Practical Use by Texas Farmer-Co- st Is Merely Nominal.

Human pride, human ambition and unllmllted means are the causes that lead to tho destruction of tho Steamship Titanic and the loss of over 1, 600 people. There U no doubt but this calam ity could have been avoided with only half caro and precaution, on the part of tho owners' nnd officers of this great ocean steamer. Tho people on board wero not to blame, la fact thoy would not havo been passengers on tho ship If thoy hadn't believed that it was safe and Uiat the officers would have caused It to run tho safest and best route over the sea to America, and exorcised tho best of caro for tho ship and Its human freight. The death of these 1C00 peoplo and the loss of so much money and property and tho extreme suffering by so many, was all brought about by tho ambition of the owners of tills great vessel nnd Its officers, and until tho various nations of tho country take up these quostlons and pass drastic laws against tho cnrolossness of the ounors and officers of sea going vcssols so long will these fearful continue. There woro many precautions neglected by tho officers of this ship that In tho trjlng ordeal were so badl needed. The search lights were not used enough, there woro not enough of life saving boats nnd It was car ried several hundred nflles too far north among the fogs and Icebergs to bo safe. If somo of the o ners and officers of these great ocean llnn wore punishable by death for such criminal carelessness there would be less loss of human life.

After we mounted and rode away, scarcely a word was exchanged between us. Just before dusk we overtook a doxen horsemen In the break of a creek bottom, roughly dressed fellow, heavily armed, riding In the aame direction as ourselves, and, aft er the exchango of a word or two. the whole party of us jogged along together. Others straggled In, singly, or by small groups, aa darkness closed about, until we formed quite a respect-ablcompany. It was rather a silent, weird procession, scarcely a word being spoken, and no sound heard, other than the dull reverberation of unshod hoofs on the soft turf. To me, glan cing back from where I held position beside Farrell. they semed like spectral figures, with no rtttle of accoutrements, no glimmer of steel, no semblance of uniform. Yet my heart warmed to the knowledge that these were no holiday warriors, but grim They had left their fighting men. plows In the furrow to strike a blow for liberty. It was an hour or more after dark when our compact little body of horsemen rodo down a gully Into a broad creek bottom, and then advanced through a fringe of trees to the edge of the Btream. There was a young moon in the sky yielding a spectral light, barely making those faces nearest me visible.

There was a murmur of acquiescence, a few- - qucHtlont. and then ,the silence of approval. It was evident these minute men were under small discipline, and their officers led only by force of character. Without orders the horses wero led away, tied securely In the black depths of the woods, and the men cam straggling back, rifles In band, grouping them selves along the edge of the stream. There was no attempt at military formation, but Duval straightened them out so aa to count the number present "8lxty-nIno- . all told." he announced briefly.

In the Federal Court ut 1'aducali, Wednesday afternoon, a verdict for $S 000 was returned in tho caso of tugust D. Cooke against B. G. Hale and" J. W. Ward, both of Hickuiun. Cooke sued the defendants for $20,000 which he alleged was obtained under falsa pretenses by Hale & Ward. The suit grew out of tho sale of a tract of Umber land. At the November term of court the trial resulted In a 'mug Jury. The land In question Is bounded on one side by the Tenneseoe line and id located below Hickman. It was purchased by Hale & Ward from the late It. T. Tyler, who sold it to them tvith the understanding that he would have a survoy made of a certain line. In turn tbe land was 6old to Cooke, with tbe understanding that the lino would later be run. Mr. Tyler died, end as a result the line was not run by him. Later It developed that some of the land shown to Cooke, as he claims, by tbe defendants was not a part of their tract, as they supnos- d hence the suit When the line was finally established Hale & Ward were short a considerable portion of ground which they thought belonged to Uiein, and which they, in good faith, sold to Cooke. Had Sir. Tyler lived the matter would have been straightened up, but his death left it In a bad shape so far as Hale & Ward were concerned, and they will lose a lot of money on the deal. over the two dlstin Kiilshed gentlemen who are nursing a similar ambition, but without an) reflection upon, or disparagement of the abilities or fitness of either of them.

WHY NOT GET THE BEST THE OLD RELIABLE, LIGHT RUNNING ? IHAGESENTBYWIRE Recent French Invention That Opens Great Possibilities. Photographs Can Be Sent by Telegraph With Great Accuracy and Some Speed Whenever Neo-essary Apparatus Exists. Paris. It has been possible for some time to send photographs by wire with great accuracy and some speed, wherever the necessary apparatus exists. Such transmission has for a year or so formed part of tho regular Paris service of an enterprising London Journal. Suppose, however, that a reporter finds himself at a country telegraph station and deslros to send to his paper a picture of some kind in connecUon with hi story portrait, or the photograph of some building or locality. He Is evidently no better off than he would have been a cntury ago. A recent process, how-ovethe Invention of a French engineer named Mortler, would make It possible for him to sand his picture over a single wire, with the aid of tho ordinary telegraphic Instruments or rather, it would enable him to telegraph data from which the picture could be built up at the receiving station. This process Is described by R. Bounln In La Nature, where we read: "Mortler's process requires neither costly and delicate apparatus nor any peculiar Installation, nor a special wire. It will work anywhere, using under normal conditions tho existing telegraphic plant of the smallest localities and without the least Interference with Its ordinary administration.
