Honorable Richard Wi MHIer of Madison county DicCrJMiller as he is known to his freud is the one Democrat in Kentucky who can now harmonize all the element in the party During session of the Legislature wl ici cls d today he nas tnwerrri as a leader above all the rest Defeated in the race for the Speaker hip by the narrowI est of margin he did not cheerfully srt himself to the task of accomplishing all the material good for the State which could be accomplished and succeeded in passing every bill he championed So remarkable has been his suc cess that it has been said Jltat a speech from Dick Miller secures a unanimous vote He is easily the most accomplished orator in Ken l legislativeI career and xlsensible view ofall public ques tions This is a day of young men in polities and in nominating Dick Miller for Governor the recognize that fact Gov c hamVnends insist that he sUafrgo5 to the Senate r two years hence and hiairiends in the past have proved invincible A winning ticket jane that would ap peal to every Democrat in Kentuc jt kwould be Mttlerfor Governor and Beckham for Senator Before any thing else we are for Demo cratic success and we know that can be assured by the adoption of our suggestion Of course if Sen ator McCreary is a candidate for re election that woulcl make impossi ble Mr Millers candidacy for the Governorship Clark county is for Senator McCreery for anything he wants but if he feels satisfied with one term in the Senate the j ticket we name presents to the party an oppurtuuity for the most successful campaign Kentucky has witnessed in fifteen years Winchester Democrat We rise tosec and Mr Millets hoinination for Governor or any old thing he wants But while waiting for the time to make Hihi Governor just I let the Eighth send him to Congress where he is bound for just as cer tain as he enters the race Dick Miller is a man for the people and the people over in Rbckcastle are for Dick Miller ABOUT the most disgusting thing there

Price is now serv ing his second term as county at torney During his political ca- reerhe has been before his people eifcht times without opposition though Boyle is one of the closest counties in the State As a lawyer Mr Price is considered one of the best in his district He is an elegant speaker quick of action and a student He is a member of the law department of Central Univer sity The

SWIMMERS THEY ENCOUNTER MARY UN KNOWN AND SINGULAR DENI ZENS OF THE Starling Experience of a Moonlight Swim in the Great Ocean Current Accomplished by SharkScared Big Fish Away The wharf rats of New York and other large cities who seem willing to brave the wrath of the officers of the law are but the making of many of the most fearless swimmers of the world A commercial traveler who journeys not only all over the precincts of the United States but in foreign lands as well in speaking of his happy boyhood days when he as sociated with the daring swimming population of the Metropolis said that however pleasant and enjoyable his youthful excursions they were not to compare with a swim in the Gulf Steamthe Gulf Steam teeming with life that only one whose nerves are in absolute consonance with the ocean can escape Wrigging and dart ing things grip unseen at the swim mers breast and arms Silvery flashes before his lace tell of fish turning their glittering sides sharply as they leap away at his approach Big and little rising out of enormous depths to sink again half seen all conspire to make that sunlight splendor a place of sudden terrors to any except the fearlessMoonlight Swim in the Tropics One evening said the man of commerce after I had been in Ja maica having a week of the joys of swimming this stream I proposed to a couple of my friends that we break the monotony by taking a dip in the water by moonlight One of them con sented and we were soon disporting ourselves in the clear water We were going along easily and en joying the swim immensely Rarely have I seen the water so phosphor escent Every stroke made fire whirl MISS MATILDA Daughter Secretary jf German Embassy account himself another he DEEP moonlit around us and once when I looked over at my companion who was swim ming abreast of me probably a hun dred feet away he seemed to be ab solutely immersed in sparkling flame But that same moment I became aware of a third area of swiftly moving phosphorescence between us and the next instant I realized that it was made by a big shark a goof three feet longer than I am- Shark Was Gamey I splashed hard but the shark contrary to the habits of his kind did not turn tail He kept right on and then my companion saw him and became nervous He began to swim unevenly and I knew at once that he might not keep his head if the big fish should really try to annoy him Sovl struck straight across at right anglesJust as I got half way over the shark put on speed and forged head down on me For a moment as I saw that green submarine streak of fire with the glistening dorsal fin sticking up higher than my head com ing straight for me like a shot I was nearly panic stricken myself But turned directly at him pounding and lashing the sea with hands and feet and blowing the water to make a bel lowing noise The maneater sank beneath the surface and I could see his faintly illuminated outline going down down slowly till It glimmered fath oms deep Then I got my hand under my companions armpit and helped him along I guests you dont ever wanta moon light swim here again after that eh said one of his hearers Oh we were kind of scared all right was the reply but it wasnt that bad Only I will confess that we sat around for nearly an hour getting our nerves straightened out before we swam back GREAT CULEBRA CUT Biggest Piece of Digging Ever Under takenA Huge DrainageCut The huge excavations for the Pana ma Canal across the Culebra divide will be by far the greatest furrow in the earths surface ever made by human agency This statement is made by the Engineering News in a com prehensive discussion of the great excavation projects of the world The big Panama cut is so large that the mind fails to grasp its real magnitude and it can only be appreciated by comparison with some familiar object A question of considerable interest re cently raised by a correspondent relates to the largest existing artificial excavation which is at all comparable with the Culebra cut Great amounts of excavation were done of course on such works as the North Sea Canal the Manchester Canal and the Suez Canal but all these were built through comparatively level country So far as it has been able to discover the only deep cut at all com parable with that to be made through the Cuelbra divide is the great Nochi stongo cut through the hills which surround the Valley of Mexico This huge excavation was begun in 1640 for the purpose of affording an outlet to the flood waters which had inun dated the City of Mexico and destroyed a great part of the city and its in habitants For more than a hundred and forty years labor on this great work was the chief task of the Mex ican nation and it was not until the year 1789 that it was finally completed The total length of the Nochistongo cut is twelve and onehalf miles Its jreatest depth is 197 feet and its great est width is 361 feet The total amount of material excavated was about 54 000000 cubic yards In comparison with this the cut at Culebra will have a considerably greater maximum depth and width even for the project with the eightyfivefoot summit level The total cube of excavation at the Culebra divide was estimated by En gineer Wallace as 186000000 cubic yards for the sealevel canal and 111 000000 cubic yards for a canal with a sixtyfoot summit level While in mere size of excavation the cut through the Panama divide is by far the larger the fact that the Nochistongo cut was made with abso lutely no aid from machinery or mechanical power but wholly with human muscle makes our task on the isthmus seem like mere childs play in eomparison with that accomplished by those patient toilers under the tor rid sun of Mexico two centuries ago When one recalls that this deep arti ficial valley more than twelve miles long was all dug by the labor of In dians who excavated the material with the crudest hand tools and car ried it in baskets on their heads to the place of final deposit the great cut of Nochistongo is entitled to rank with the Pyramids of Egypt among the worlds greatest wonders What Governs Price of Dogs The price paid for a dog seems to be governed not so much by the value of the animal as the sentiment of the pur chaser in the vast majority of cases and as a rule the sporting dog brings the lowest figure Doubtless this is due to the fact that the man who wants a gun dog is a practical person while the seeker after the show dog pays for running the show It is granted right here that many a good gun dog also shows well but the highest prices go for the show animal pure and sim pleAt a recent sale of pointers and setters at Birmingham England one of the most important sales in years the entire lottwo score or moresold for 3025 The highest price paid was 325 for the famous female pointer Coronation four and a half years the winner of many championships while among the setters the choice was Ightfield Bang four and a half years a great field trial winner who brought only 185 American purchasers would have thought these dogs cheap at 1000 apiece In contrast with these prices the bull terrier Woodcote Wonder sold in New Haven for 5000 to a San Fran cisco purchaser Richard Croker Jr paid 3000 for his Champion Rodney Stone and Frank Gould paid as high as 5000 for a St Bernard These are real prices unlike many of the amounts running up into the thousands tagged on to bench space of not a few 30cent dogs exhibited at some of the kennel shows where it is believed nec essary to have something attractive Highest

about the South until through travel I saw and came to know things as they are I oldIIts historic associations running back to the earliest English settlements on this continent but practically

the round wick generally considered the cheapest of all lighting methods burns but about 6 hours on a quart of oil while The Angle Lamp burns afull i6 hours on the same quantity This even where oil is

development There is no other part of the Republic which makes a stronger appeal to enterpris Ing men whether they have large or small capital It is a beautiful coun try a healthful country and a country which holds out every promise of social satisfaction for those who go there to make their homes The most amazing thing about the South is the cheapness of its fertile agricultural lands though one hears on every hand that prices have gone up considerably during the past few givinglandnational prosperity and wonderful strides in loeal settlement and development one can still buy fine farm ing land at prices ranging from 5 an sere upward People regard 25 an acre as a pretty stiff price for lands which would be considered very reasonable nt three or four times as much under the same conditions in Colorado Utah Idaho Washington or California ffrue the Far Western lands are irrigated and irrigation is a sort of miracle which among other things gives extraordinary value to land But

cities of the North He is favored of course by the latitude which enables him to produce both the necessaries tend luxuries of Northern tables while Jack Frost still holds the earth in his grip above Mason and Dixons line In the matter of transportation the new settler in the South is fortunate Compared with newer sections of the country the South is gridironed with railroads Not only so but it enjoys important natural advantages in the way of navigation both interior and exterior It is manifestly good rail road policy to facilitate the settlement of tributary railroad territory by making rates which encourage colonization and enable the settler to prosper Rail road earnings and values increase rapidly with population and development The opportunities of the South con stitute an open invitation to all men who desire to improve their conditions of living by getting an independence from the soil The man who wants to avail himself of these opportunities may do so at once with a small of capital without waiting for the adoption of new public policies of any sort But it is impossible to travel through the Southern States without thinking of the obligation which rests upon the Nation to do certain things Which must be done before the largest economic results can be achieved I have been interested for many years in the promotion of a govern ment irrigation policy and in scientific forestry and systematic colonization which are inseparably associated with It But these are only a part of the great work of Internal improvements to which the government must set its band They are but a portion of the bigger problem of Building the Unfinished Republic and finishing the world in partnership with God To Upbuild the Nation The United States should drain the Southern swamps for precisely ithe same reason that it stores the waste flood water to irrigate the Western deserts in order that we may widen the foundations of our national life enhance the common prosperity and give men more room in which to build their habitations We should preserve and extend the forests on all the watersheds of the United States and not merely In the mountains of the West regulatethe land We should adopt policies which will everywhere facilitate the subdivision of the soil into small holdings and the growth of in holdingsEvendensely peopled and perhaps least favored in natural advantagesNew England for examplethere is much to be done in improving natural con opportunitiesforBut it is not enough to make the land ready for its highest uses the people must also be made ready to utilize the land boy and girl should leave the public schools prepared to make a living and to collect it from mother earth herself when they desire to do so This is distinctly in line with our great need of ing economic efficiency and thus en abling the country to meet the de mands of increasing population The South is beautiful and promising as it is but how much more beautiful and

Formerly all the statues carved from marble or granite had to be slowly and laboriously chiseled by hand Under the new order of things all this is changed and mechanically operated tools cut away the hard material and carve in the stone representations of human figures lettering etc in a fraction of the time that would be required for the same work under the old methodsMany ingenious Tools The tools which are instrumental in performing this ingenious sculpture by machinery are what are known as pneumatic tools that is they are op erated by compressed air instead of by steam or electricity The type most commonly used might be described as a combination hammer and chisel and how much more speedily such can work than could a workman with the oldfashioned chisel and hammer may be appreciated when it is stated that by means of the compressed air the hammer is made strike hundreds of blows per minute In this mechanical chiseling the pneumatic tool which is a portable piece of apparatus is held in the hand guidedZackwherever cutting is to be done The compressed air is led to the tool through a rubber hose and the oper ator can with the utmost ease and at a moments notice regulate the accordingtoMoreover different styles of pneu matic tools are provided for the va rious classes of work to be performed in producing a statue or other monu ment For instance there is one tool for light carving tracing and letter ing on granite and a different one for heavy carving and large raised letters The tools require from five to seven cubic feet of free air per minute to

going out since the death of a relative The audience was a musicloving one and during the third act as I strolled into the foyer I found it quite deserted a most unusual occurrence Wagner grows noisy to an unculti vated ear after listening an hour or so and the strains that came through the heavy closed doors were more agreeable to mine I was about to return to my seat however when I no ticed a remarkably handsome woman emerge from the curtained door that led into the lower boxes She was unusually beautiful of that flashing combination of dark eyes and golden hair that is so rare L She was fashionably dressed and under her opera cloak I saw the glim mer of jewels I expected her to sweep out to her carriage instead of which she stopped in front of me and be gan to look anxiously toward the out side door Then she stepped back Into the curtain but almost immedi ately returned and began to pace up and down more anxiously than before She was evidently looking for someone whose delay caused unusual alarm Once I thought she started toward me as if she was going to speak I thought I noticed this movement again when I involuntarily approached her Can I be of any service to you madam I asked in a most defer ential tone which her bearing seemed to demandShe doubtfully a half second then graciously explained Her father had left her at the theatre expecting to return immedi ately he had failed to do so and she was extremely alarmed on his account and was also embarrassed at finding herself alone in a strange city at midnight In fact there was noth ing else for me to do but to offer to see her home It was all arranged in- Jew seconds and under the charm of a woman who was of no ordinary type She gave the directions to the driver I had ordered a carriage and after about an hours drive we stopped in a part of the city that was not al together familiar to me though I could see by the street lamps that it FROM TREMBLING FINGERS was a fashionable if somewhat remote neighborhoodMy had been too much agitated to engage in conversation dur ing the drive except to wonder over her fathers unaccountable delay When the carriage stopped she hast ened to the steps of a stately resi dence in the middle of the square A in livery opened the door Is my father in she asked in a tone in which I noticed some of the agitation had subsided Ah Hortense my dear forgive me I fell asleep and completely forgot you How did you get home This voice came from within and was followed by an elderly man of foreign appearance ivho came forward and extended his hand affectionately to his daughter as she answered by explaining my presence I turned to go but with lavish expressions of grati tude usual to a foreigner he fairly dragged me into the house The outside appearance would hard ly have suggested the magnificent apartments in which I found myself Rich hangings rare works of art and a general luxuriousness implied the most cultivated taste While the daughter swept into an adjoining room and brought refreshments with her own hand the father engaged me In conversation on the topics of the day upon which he showed more than ordinary intelligence- I refused anything but a glass of wine which she poured from a decanter of workmanshipa rich cordial rather filling one also for her father and another for herself They were delightful conversationalists I became unusually talkative myself The conversation drifted Into personal ex periences I related one I had never repeated to mortal ears before I do not know whether It was the wine or the adorable smile of the Iulie Wells 5mifhI woman that was leading me on She had thrown aside her opera cloak and reclined on a divan her golden hair gleaming against the crimson drapery her dark eyes holding two points of fire in their expanded pupils like some Eastern enchantress under whose spell I was cqmpletely enthralled I felt my blood course through my veins with a sense of exhilaration I had nev er before experienced I could have knelt at her feet She seemed a crea ture to be worshipped who could in turn wield an influence strangely powerful I thought of the historical women of fascination who have led men to do awful deeds She seemed to recall the pictures in my minds eye of such women as she reclined there her eyes flashing darker under the masses of hair that surrounded her fair face like a crown of gold I gazed at her in a dazed steadfastness Involuntarily I raised my glass it was filled Again The third time as I would have guided it to my lips it fell from my trembling fingers and shiv ered at my feet- I staggered and fell senseless s s a When I awoke to consciousness I found myself at my own front door From the numb conditions of my limbs I knew I had been there at least an hour I fumbled at the door with my latch key my fingers were all thumbs At last however it was opened I thanked my lucky star that my wife was fast asleep and I succeeded in getting to bed without disturbing her Of course I could not go to sleep The effects of the drugging had passe- doffI knew now I had been drugged for what damnable purpose I could not conjecture no more than I could account for the other mysterious events of this most remarkable evening I had ever experiencedleaving- me in a most nervous state If it had been a case of robbery the mystery would have been cleared up to my mind immediately but the fact that- a handsome diamond that I wore on my small finger was not missing and also quite a large amount of money that I happened to have had in my pocket was still there made it more inexplicable The more I tried to unravel it the more unfathomable the whole affair became It was a deeply THE GLASS FELL man rare laid plot of which I was the victim though for what purpose I could at tribute not the slightest motive For days I could think of nothing else I said nothing to my wife about it While I could justify my actions in the affair to my own mind I was not quite sure I could do so to hers In fact my wife had been in an extremely nervous condition for a long time and of late I noticed she had be come more depressed than ever I do not know what raised the suspicion in my mind but I took a sud den fancy that my wifes late depres sion was in some way connected with my mysterious adventure A ques tion she asked me completely con firmed this suspicion and filled me with added alarm It was a question relating to an ex perience of my past life of which I had never spoken except in the pres ence of the father and daughter the night of my strange visit and through which source I felt sure she could only gain a possible knowledge of the same I determined at all hazards to investi gate at least what connection my wife could have in the chain of mystery that was surrounding me- An opportunity offered itself the very next day I happened to be in Marshall Fields great store doing some purchasing for myself when I spied my wife coming out of one of the doors leading upon the main street as I was about to pass out of another I started to attract her attention when I noticed her signal for a cab This circumstance aroused my suspicion as it was an unusual thing for my wife to do I immediately hailed another and followed her I could not help feeling guilty In this new role of all our married life as spy upon my wifes actions Not that I suspected her of anything wrong at the time I was following her more as a protector and at the same time determined to investigate the diabolical agencies at work to destroy the happiness of my home and family- I told the driver to follow my wifes cab and at the end of its destination to stop about a square behind He followed these instructions and after a long noisy ride over the rough cobbles halted abruptly and opened the cab door for me to alight I paid him and dismissed the cab and as I saw my wifes dress disappear in a doorway down about the middle of the next square made for that di rectionMy heart gave a bound as I hur ried up the steps to the door I had seen her enter By some lucky chance it was unlatched and I walked into the house Great Heavens The same rich hangings the divan with its crim son drapery the paintings all revealed themselves in the glare of broad daylight I heard the murmur of voices somewhere in the house and paused to catch the direction of the sound I could not seem to make out Every minute was as an hour I stood in breathless expectation a while longer then passed noiselessly over the velvet carpet into the adjoining room A heavy portiere at the rear led into still another and from thence the voices proceeded I recognized my wifes in the most excited tone I glided closer to the curtain and dis tinctly heard these words What you have already told me I cannot help believe and while I would know more I am afraid Oh I can not not now I Madam some one interrupted- in the unmistakable voice of my even ings enchantress I am simply about to present my impression of your husband as he appears to me in that astral personality which he is most probably unconscious of possessing There was a deathlike stillness for a few minutes suddenly broken by my wifes voice in the most agitated tone accompanied with a low sobbing Oh my God I cannot look It is my husband and yet so strangely different I could hold back no longer I drew aside the curtain and through the folding doors which were opened wide enough for the purpose passed in I found myself in total darkness There were a few seconds of suspense and thenat first indistinctly then clearer and clearer out of the dark nessa face appeared finally stand Ing in startling basrelief against a fiery nimbus that surrounded it In the wide open staring eyes the com pressed lips and sunken cheeks rec phylognomySylvia It was my wifes name I had uttered before I was conscious what I had done There was a distinct scream from each woman one of them fell I groped my way in the darkness and upIplacing my wife in it and then driv- Ing home All that night she was too ill to move but the next morning she had recovered enough for me to report at police headquarters The detective to whom I told my story smiled You have been in the hands of a couple of notorious adventurers he explained for whose arrest the au thorities of some large cities in thiscountry and abroad are on the alert The woman is a clairvoyant and pro fesses to make a specialty of the sci ence of double personality practicing this humhuggery by the desperate means you describe by which she has gathered a large clientele in this city The experiment in your case is one of the most daring The apparition of your face is a reproduction of a photograph taken in your senseless state that evening in their house for which purpose you were decoyed there and drugged This by a clever stereopti- con effect was used to present the startling revelation of your second personality for your wifes benefit who happens to be a patron of theirs and for whom the trick was contrived They were arrested last night aFEEDING TUB BIRDIES Made Friends by Hanging Fat Meat Out for Them in Winter Bird Lore in its notes on winter feeding of wild birds gives a number maybeson with the greatest satisfaction At this time of year birds like domestic fowls appreciate fat food Soup bones purposeinor elsewhere so that cats may not get at the feathered visitors Here birds will pick away every bit of meatI and gristle Suet may be put in the trees this way or the carcass of a fowl and blue jays nuthatches wood peckers and chicadees not to mention the English sparrows will visit this luncheon with delight A correspondent writing from Jack sonville says Ever since I began bird study six years ago I have kept a winter bird table and it has been a neverfailing source of pleasure and instruction to me as well as a help to my bird guests during the bad weather We have an acre of ground around our home and fine trees but there are streets on all but the north side so I chose that side for the bird table as it is the most sheltered and at the same time affords us the best chance to watch the birds from the house I be an by tying lumps of suet up in small trees near the windows and very soon my guests began to arrive Later I devised a plan for bringing the suet eaters within closer range I fastened a rough stick two or three inches In diameter to the window shutters across the window a little below the middle sash and upon this stick I tied my lump of suet From that time we have bad the pleasure all winter long of watching our bird neiJ1t at their luncheon while sitting at our own dining table I also fastened a wooden tray to the sill into which we put cracked nuts and chopped suet The most constant visitors were the chickadees and wood peckers then blue jays titmice show birds and nuthatches with once in a while a cardinal Of these the chile adees and downy woodpeckers are the tamest When the spring migrants return we find blackbirds and cat birds patronizing the suet Almost all 4 the winter birds are fond of both nuts and suet No one need ever waste old or rancid nuts The birds will be glad to get them Another Illinois correspondent says Last fall I hung a birdfood shelf at our south window and early each morn ing put cracked nuts suet and bird seed on it Several tufted titmice visited it the first morning In a day or two snowbirds and chickadees came in flocks Whitebreasted nuthatches downy and hairy woodpeckers a white crowned sparrow and a red bellied woodpecker were constant visitors all winter often coming several times a day A mocking bird came until the middle of December making in all nine kinds of birds These birds all enjoyed the fresh fat pork I nailed to a nearby

FEVER TICKS Promising Experiments Undertaken by the Agricul tural DepartmentG- UY ELLIOTT MITCHELL To stamp out Texas cattle fever This is the hope of the Department of Agriculture The Department has been working on the problem for some time and it has almost been proved to the satisfaction of officials that the tick which causes the fever can be eradicated from a pasture simply by keeping cattle out of that pasture The tick is not a herbivorous insect and it will die out if the pasture is kept free of cattle It is believed that if one pasture on a farm is always kept free of cattle over what might be termed the life period of the tick it will furnish perfectly safe pasturage for uninfected animals in case fever breaks out in the rest of the herd Of course the Department of Agri culture has no right to go into a State and enforce the free pasturage policy and the matter cannot be or at least is not always dealt with satisfactorily by State officials But in cases where theDepartment is officially invited to P come into a State and take charge of cleaning it up it is quite ready to do so Tentative arrangements have al ready been made for this work with the authorities in some States and it is believed that it will be quite pos sible to stamp out the fever and al low the free interstate transportation WITH of cattle which is now prohibited The saving in money and the convenience to shippers of this arrangement can easily be understood To Introduce Cattle from India While this quarantine and tion work is going on a similar experi ment on different lines directed to the same end will soon be under way where have been imported to some f of the Texas ranges specimens of the Indian sacred cattle and it has been found that they were to the Texas fever Apparently there is an oil in the skin that is repugnant to the tick At any rate they will not har bor the parasite The halfbloods and even animals containing but onesix teenth part Indian blood have been found immune and they make just as good beef cattle as can be found There are very stringent laws against the importation of foreign stock into this country without thor ough examination and quarantine therefore it is risky to import stock from so far away as India without especial provisions for its examination AgricuI1tural India to pick them out The Depart ment of Agriculture will send a special veterinary after him and the first shipment of about 100 head will be RYE GROWN ON WELL MANURED examined before they are shipped and then quarantined on one of the small islands off the gulf coast till it is determined that there is no danger of their bringing into this country some strange bovine affliction even worse perhaps than Texas fever After the animals have been thor oughly proven they will be introduced among the Texas herds and it is hoped feverresistingstrain tion to tho cattle men of the South west UncleSams tothequently to all meat consumers The Manure Pit Where is the wise farmer who would sell to his neighbor a load of his finest corn or a load of some green crop for a dollar bill Yet there are thousands of agriculturists all over the country who are doing practically this very thing when they dispose of their barn yard manure for 1 a load Others are wasting the most valuable constitu ents of the manure they save The manure produced on the farm is its most valuable asset There are in the United States in round numbers 17000000 horses 61 000000 cattle 47000000 hogs and 45 000000 sheep Experiments have shown that if these animals were kept in stalls or pens throughout the year and the manure both liquid and solid carefully saved the approximate value of the manure produced by each horse CATTLE INFECTED TEXAS FEVER extirpa immune annually would be 27 by each head of cattle 19 by each hog 12 and by each sheep 2 The fertilizing value of all the manure produced would therefore be for horses 459000000 cattle 1159000 hogs 564000000 and sheep 90000000 or a total of 2272000000These are based on the values usually assigned to phosphoric acid potash and nitrogen in commer cial fertilizers and are possibly some what too high from a practical stand point On the other hand no account is here taken of the value of manure for improving the mechanical condi tion and drainage of soils which is almost as important a consideration as its direct fertilizing value It is generally conceded that at least one third of the value of manure is lost by present wasteful management or a total loss to the country of over 750000000 Return Full Value to the Soil Ifa farmer desires to maintain the productiveness of his land it is es sential that the amount of potash phosphoric acid and nitrogen removed through the selling of meat milk grain hay fruits vegetables

any other farm product after he has for twenty years stored the farmyard manure under the eaves upon the slope which forms one border of the running made by various Government experiment stations show that the construction of sheds or covered yards for the protection of manure is well worth while The manure from the horse and cattle stables and the sheep and calf pens should be spread MANUREITHE WASTE OF BARNYARD out evenly over these yards covered with coarse litter and the whole kept firmly packed by allowing animals to run over it thus preventing injurious fermentationTo All the Fertility A more elaborate and expensive style of covered yard a plan for which is furnished by the Department of Agriculture provides not only for the required protection of both animals and manure but also affords an ex cellent grain chamber where feed can be stored for convenient use Under the side roofs is also afforded a chance for the storing of small tools and a great variety of articles that are continually in the way when lying about the farm buildings It also provides splendid protection to animals when housed at night during the summer this roof protecting them from heavy showers in the night and affording good chance for exercise in the win ter as all the sides except that toward the south can be protected against cold winds through temporary boarding Many stables are so situated that by adding a cheap leanto a manure pit is easily produced The out side boarding of the leanto should be for a part of the way at least put horizontally and hung in the form of t flat doors so that the manure can be easily loaded on a wagon standing on the outside of the building A great number of farmers who have adopted manure sheds and covered A CONVENIENT yards have obtained unsatisfactory results but the Department of Agricul ture believes that this is probably due to the fact that these structures have generally been loosely put together allowing a free circulation of air which has dried out the manure On this account barn cellars so common in New England possess decided ad vantages as receptacles for manure The common practice of allowing swine to work over the manure in these cellars is a wise one since it mixes the manure and keeps it well packed and moist In fact if these cellars are provided with impervious bottoms to hold the liquid manure this system of storage is probably the most perfect practiced Manure the Best Fertilizer Barnyard manure is the most effective means at the disposal of the average farmer to permanently im POSIsessesproduc1tivenesstility It provides actual fertilizing constituents it improves the physical properties of the soil increasing the generallydeficienttexture and increasing its waterab sorbing and waterholding power Ex periments have shown that the influ perceptibletwentyrectly represents fertility drawn from the soil and must be returned to it if productiveness is to be maintained In many cases it has been demon strated that the value of the manure obtained in cattle feeding represents largely if not entirely the profit of feeding There are sound scientific reasons for the high esteem in which farm manure is held It contains all the fertilizing elements required by plants in quickly available forms that insure plentiful crops and permanent fertility It supplies nitrogen phos phoric acid and potash and it alsdren ders the stored up materials of the soil more available makes it more fri able and warmer and enables it to retain more moisture Rattlesnake Den We were lumbering in central Penn sylvania during the summer of 1870 our portable steam mill standing in apiece of woodland near a small stream and within a short half mile of a rocky ledge known as Rattlesnake Den- During the hot days rattlers were constantly met and Harry who drove the daily stage through the Nar rows had won quite a local reputa tion from having killed more than a score since the melting of the snows The pretty young wife of our en gineer had charge of the boarding house and after the noon meal was served the dishes cleared away and the house put in order she was ac customed to bring her sewing into the shade near our

would be struck be fore I could take even the first step Motz must have seen the snake at the voiceIsnake that will strike if you move sit perfectly still As he spoke he grabbed from a beam the bull
