Ross, nizht engineer at the Mengel Box Co., tvho came to Hick man a short time ago, has had more than his share of sorrow In the past two months. He returned from Oklahoma Tuesday, where he was called, on account of the Illness of his fath er and little daughter. Both of them died. Only a short tlmee ago, his wife died in a hospital ih Louisville. Few of us can appreciate the full extent of such great sorrow and misfortune. Added to this, is that deso late feeling of loneliness that comes from being among strangers. If ever a man deserved sympathy and words of consolation, It is Mr. Ross. To giro up in so short a time father. wife and daughter. Is tearing the very heart-string- s and It taxes the Btrength of strong men. tries the faith of those, however religious, to bear up under the weight of such burdens, and say to themselves "Thy will he done."

BRADLEY THE HICKMAN COURIER "Covtrt Wtilern Ktntmkt UkethfOca" VALUABLE FARM SPEEO & SEXTON Rates PUBLISHERS Many Farmers Neglect to Care tor Manure and 8pend Their Money for Commercial Fertiliser. (By W. 1L KEL8ET.) In splto of all that has been written telling of the value of stable manure-ther- e are many farmers who still neglect to care for this valuable of the farm and spend their money for commercial fertilizer. I do not wish to discourage tho ura of commercial fertilizer, but it should never be used until the Btable manure Is first taken care of and applied to the soil, If there is not sufficient manure to meet the demands of the farm crops the deficiency should be supplied by using commercial fertil izer, It Is rather difficult to estlmato the value of stable manure In dollars and cents as commercial fertilizers are valued, since the stable manure adds much valuable humus to the soil as well as direct plant food and the commercial fertilizer Is valued for the direct plant food alone. Dr. Alkman says that tho humus of the stable manure Is worth quite as much to the soil as the direct plant food. Valuing the phosphoric acid at five cents per pound, the potash at five cents per pound and the nitrogon at IS cents per pound a fair average value of the stable manure may be estimated as follows: 10 pounds nitrogen at 16 cents.. 11.60 10 pounds potash at 5 cents 60 6 pounds phosphoric acid at 6 cents 26 I2.2S Subscription $1J0 Per Year GAPDDN r Manure hauling la in mason any month of the year. A atone silo, If properly built, will give good satisfaction. Th bad road tax Is tho heaviest tax tho farmer has to meet Soil Improvement clubs are being extensively organized these days. Peas, beans and onions were first known In Egypt many centuries ago. Buy chicken wire to use In the garden instead of stakes wherever pos' sible. Tho silo helps solve the problem of making a profit from $100 an acre land. Low ground drained can be cultivated earlier than high ground not drained. Decaying organic matter in the soil adds to the warmth and stimulates plant life. Do not let manuro accumulate in the barn lots. The place for It Is In tho fields. Bushes and small trees too large for the plow to root out should be cut with an ax. Plan your farm to reduce the necessity of buying additional food to the lowest point Seed and the preparation of soil nre the two important items determining the yields of crops. Take the dull plow share with you the first time you go to town. It may save a trip a little later. A lot of poor seed corn will be planted this year, as usual, with a certainty that a poor stand will result. Whore the manure spreader excels in in making the manure go farther, In spreading It moro vn!y. and in 1 htcnlni? the work. DYNAMITERS BEWARE.

His eyes swept across the' guard, and then centered upon me. Instantly they blazed with excitement, although I noticed he took a sudden step backward In the first shock of surprise, his band dropping to the butt of a pistol In his belt.

Ho was a man of mystery. Louisiana In those days consisted largely of rich, unsettled land. Into thrse wasto spaces tho pioneers began to como. Huge plantations sprang up. To work tho plantations there was need for thousands of negro slaves. And tho slave trade between Africa and America throv tremen dously. A negro that cost $20 In his African Jungle could often be sold Tor 11.000 In tho New Orleans market. Then the United Btatea declared tho horrlblo African slavo trade Illegal. Tbls stopped the imports. The plant-er- a clamored for more slaves. Gangs of emugglers met the demand by secretly buying slaves Intended for finsln'a Cuban and South American plantations and landing tbcm by night in the Louisiana bayous. Tnor was money In tbls sort of business. Moro So, tho La than In blacksmtthlng. fltto brothers became slave smug glers. Then Jean's fertllo brain sUU furth er Improved his business In a rathor original way. What was tho uso or buying negroes from the Spanish lava shins off the Cuban coast when. by seltlng those ships, bo could got tho negroes for nothing! It waa a rlnvnr lilna and hfl at OBOO DUt it into pructloo. Ho also seised Teasels laden with other valuables, and altogetnr bo prospered exceedingly. L&ntto himself did not go in soarcn of such prey. Ho was a business man. not a cheap sea rover, uy this unw bo bad a number of good ships and nearly one thousand men to send on his piratical errands. Ho had a fortified town and harbor of his own at TUratarla and made that nlaco bla headquarters. Jean had marvelous control over his men, and, tnougn no eldom troubled himself to fight, ho was unconquerable. On night a band of mutineers attacked him in his slow six cabin. Lafitte, single-handeof them and beat off tho rest. Tho pirates called Lafitte, behind his back, "Tho Old Man." To bis fac they called him "Dosso" (meaning litAnd thus tho erally "prominence-- ). word "boss" came Into our own lan guage. Ho seldom spoke to his men except when bo had to and held aloof from them. Dy judicious bribes to tho right authorities bo managed to steer clear of active prosecution, though countless governmental throats wore hurled at him. When the British planned their attack on Now Orleans in the War of 1812 they offered Jean Lafltto a cap-tcommission and $30,000 to Join them with his men. Instead of accepting, ho sent word of tho offer (and of tho British plot against New Orleans) to tho American government, volunteering his services In exchange for a pardon. The British, in revenge, destroyed his Barataria stronghold and aelced his ships. But the Ameri can general, Andrew Jackson (after cursing him for a -- neiiian Danaii"j accepted Lafltte's offer. And tho plrato fought bravely for America in tho bat-tl-o of Now Orloana, receiving a pardon for nil past crimes. After the war Lafltto went blithely back to bis old ways. With his men be settled on an abandoned island, where now stands the city of Qalvea-toand rondo that place his new headquartera. Thus bo was in a sense tho rail founder of Galveston. Ho hit on an odd way to sell his smuggled slaves. Ho would arrango for Colonel Bowie (Inventor of tho bowle knife) to selio them from him and to take them to New Orleans. Thero, as confiscated goods, they were placed on sale, and Lafltto and Bowlo each reaped a goodly proflt. a Suitor to tho nlrato lair wrote: "Gold pieces are aa plentiful hero aa biscuits."
