the supply is inadequate Winchester Democrat Within the last few years a plant called Japan clover has been introduced from somewhere and is m w found in numerous places in the county An exchange says of it Japan clover a grass which in reI cent years has spread to the grea er part of the country growing ev en in the poorest soil is coming thicker this spring than ever It affords excellent grazing and cuts good hay For grazing purposes the new grass cannot be excelled after it comes in but it is too late for early grazing It is said to be a splendid fertilizer and is considered a blessing for this country to have the new grass accidentally in trade shows some improvement says the Breeders Gazette Late last week witnessed quite an upturn and this week on light re ceipts it was continued The

tops at 5 50 Talking on the future of the hog market Charles Goepper a promi nent Chicago buyer said Last fall I was a bear in common with hog buyers all over the country We were wrong simply because we couldnot detect a normal demand I do not look for materially lower prices during the summer packing season with every condition favor ing the grower but my advice to country speculators is to avoid but ling the market Contracting hogs for summer delivery at 6 cents is dangerous While prices have ruled high all winter speculators have not had a profitable season and practically all the money has gone to the grower I look for a normal summer run of hogs and it is up o the consumer to maintain prices A factor in sumtier nnr keting will he the fall fai rowed pig and after June we may lojk fur

JOHN W HUGHES of Mercer County as a caiifiulate to represent the Eighth Congressional District in Congress to succeed lion G G Gilbert subject to the action of the Demo cratic party Tbe Great San Francisco Disaster Y1VITI DESCRIBED BYONE WHO EXPERIENCED TILE AWFUL SCENE The following is a letter which Atty C C Williams received from relative who lives just across UK bay in Alameda which so vividly describes the terrible disaser that laid waste the beautiful city of San Francisco we copy it in trill San Francisco April 30 1906 DEAR COUSIN CASPER i know that you will be happy to know that we all escaped being burned upso far and that we came out unscathed by the big earthquake that shook the bottom out ot San Francisco on the fate ful 8th of April last and with small lots of property Can you imagine big proud San Francisco which you honored with your visit last August to be now one vast expanse of ruins black charred heaps of bricks and mortar twisted rails and wires by the thousands dangling from half crumbled down skyscrapers which looks down at you through the blackened apertures of their former windows like legions of mocking Peering devils =the ground seven blocks by eight No more French restaurants with the luscious crab No more latin quarter with the sons and daugh ters of sunny Itally mixing their songs with those of the natives of the Pyrenees and of Normandy of glorious France no more Mexican Fandango or pompous Coon re sorts of the Barbary coasts where proud Albions and other tars found it fun followed by a remorseful day to have the last cruises pickings wheedled out of them by dusky beauties and belles of other climes No more Kearney street no more Market street the busiest of the marts of the world and the most crowded of all the thorough fares No more NOb Hill the seat of the palatial homes of the late bananza kings The Hopkins At Institute with its priceless treas ures of art is gone Nothingnmor ofall the wealth and material beauty of San Francisco but hills upon hills of desolation and anni hilation The Palace Hotel that world renowned caravansary is down to the first story a mess of ghastly ruins The St Francis Hotel the Fairmount monuments by themselves are mere shells so is that handsome structure the Call building One hundred banks twenty theaters most all the churches all are gone South of Market from the Ferry building to the hills towards the county line is a vast plain ofugly black smok ing ruins It is gruesome sicken ing heartrendermg You dream of it at night and you shudder at the thought of it in the day No you cant imagine it you must seeit and then after one has seen it one is sorry to have seen Something takes you by the throat and chokes you Of it a phantom remains that draws you and you grow old in one hour Fifteen square miles of territory laid bare swept by the demon fire 10000 acres of houses in ruins two hundred millions worth of property destroyed one thousand dead five hundred wounded Vbat a holocaust to the angry gods For three and a half days San Francisco burued From the Ala meda shore at night the spectacle was grandiously awesome The first day the fire ate up all the wholesale district and part of the Mission the second day the middle residence district the retail stores wd CChinatown had to be given upI rd day it swept Over Western addi i r= = Lion and North Beach and as the relentless fiend crept up the slopes of Nob Hill Russian Hill and Tel egraph Hill these looked like immense citadels of fire overtowering the plain and the valleys below en veloped in the deadly red glare The proud city of the argonauts was a sea of flames The crash of the dynamite mingled its thunder to the roar of the conflagration Every once ina while as the roof of some large building would give andsvaysparks would shoot up to the hear nsThere was hardly any water at the first great shock most of tai mains were broken some of the pipes lifted up in the air and stood half way on their beam ends Water was pumped from the bay and in some instances the sewers were used as conduits hut to no avail here and there a few stream from some reservoir would he used with effect for a little while unti the firemen fighting from behiu wet blankets surrounded by flame were forced to retire to renew their brsve fight further back only to be again driven away Neer was a more heroic fight put up by fire uen and soldiery Block after block of buildings in the path of the fire were blown up in the effort o check its course but the demo n laughed at wreckage as well From house to house from street to street from quarter to quartet it would leapand seize upon fresh preyIn one place in the Mission the broken mains created a flood slow ly drowing several inmates of wrecked houses pinioned in the timbers before help could reach themThe City Hall went down at the first shock fortunately it didnt catch fire Its records or most of them and moneys are safe in the vaults The steel skeleton of its dome 300 feet high looms up like gigantic beast whose entrails have been torn out exposing the bare ribs of the carcass The Mechanics Pavillion was early in the day turned into a gen Sudeeulyings caught fire from behind and beforejall could be moved it is said the place of ten thousand capac ity was turned into a huge funeral fire The Presidio the military reservation on the Golden Gate with its large forest was made the headquarters for the wounded In the midst of all that hales the new Postoffice of granite and mar ble stands white and serene crack ed only still to the extent of 500000 The Mint the Cus tome House and the Ferry binding stand practically uninjured Among the hotels of the South side the records of the number of people crushed or incinerated IP greatest reaching the hundred mark in one instance Seventeen men and twenty three horses were killed by the colapse of the 2Iav Street Market The earth seemed to move in waves Income places the sidewalks are lifted up 4 to 6 feet and next to it a depression in the ground equally as deep tells of the force of the quake The car tracks and the cable slot in places are twisted in zigzags Fire caught simultaneously at twenty different places at once at the first tremble which lasted from 50 to 70 seconds and which realh seemed an age With a roar the quake cams from North to south and a twisting aud shaking and a rollicking that seemed never to want to stop and the work of destruction with all its heartrender ing scenes was on rendering 300 000 people homeless The third day of the conflagration a sucessful stand was finally made on Van Ness Avenue on the north and on Dolores street on th south two thoroughfares 125 feet wide Here all the available water was concert trated rows after rowf of buildings in the path of the fiery monster were dynamited and back firing resorted to Most of the damage was done by the fire Thetall steel buildings stood the shock very well as ex emplified by the Call building 17 stories high the new Chronicle building the Mutual Saving Bank building and many others The fire did all the damages to those frames are all standing The heat was intense and night was as light as day Many firemen had their coats caps and shoes burned oft their bodies Fifty fine horses were killed during those three days of agon yrand the engines were r =putted up the hills by1 ropes In one instance 500 men wit b rops pulled the engine out of the fire to the top of a hill were many cases of ex ITherebut in the matu the people all worked like brothers The au thorities aided by the soldiery kept the situation well in hand Those who refused to help were torced to do so at the point of the bayonet wagons and automobiles were re q litiitioned to carry the wounded Used and clothing and thieves human vultures ghouls and other fiends were shot in their unholy act One prominent firm of grocer Goldberg Bowen Co triple heir prices on the second day of the calamity in San Franciscc Oakland and Berkeley The nuli tary swept the owners out of th s ores and confiscated the whol stock which will be paid for at the regular wholesale rates by the finance committee In contrast to the attempted highwa robbery of this firm one small grocery firm cut down the prices one third in many instances selling ow cost 1 One expressman was offered i all the money the man had to take a sickwife a hild and a few parcels to the ferry a thirty minutes drive Seeing the plight of the man the jehu demanded fiftv dollars Another expressman pass ing with his rickety old wagon carrying his own furniture away hearing of this unloaded his wagon on the street left his longings in charge of some strang ers and took the mans wife and child to the ferry for which service he refused to take any pay whateverAs as any act of extortion was reportei to the authorities thi military stepped in and confiscate the goods or the conveyances for the benefft of the people Th third day of the fire a baker fron Oakland took away a load of fresh baked bread to the city ostensibly for the lelief committee the only way he could get a pass Once on the other side he begun selling his bread at 25 and 50 cents a loaf A soldier soon stepped upon tbe 1 of his revolver compelled the hake to give away every loaf to the hun gry The people who charged ordinary prices wete not interferer withThe fourth day I went over fron Alameda as one of the relief committee to bring refuges across and the sight that met my gaze going upmarket street amid that vast expanse of ruins was heartrender ing By thousands the people were tramping down toward the feny ir order to escape the doomed city People of all conditions in all sorts ofcostumes rich once and poor now all are poor and homeless were tramping over the hot bricks towards the country All sorts of conveyances were requisitioned tc carry those wounded well enough to leave the city and the few be longings which they saved which consisted mostly of bundles wrapped up in sheets comforters blank its a few had valises some were dragging their trunks for blocks Here and there a parrot canary bird a pet dog with a few bits o f urniture on trucks buggies bar- ouches express wagons automo biles hand carts wheelbarrows etc Here a woman with a silk Iress diamonds on her fingers a mans hat her husbands slippers pother with a skirt a pair of mans outs a Ul inSOVercoat anda ancy hat with floating plumes The Italian woman whose dollar hat was ever a luxury was walk iug side by side with a woman of wealth and fashion both grim black with smoke and dirt silent esigned all on the same level now Strange to say I did not see anyone in despair or in tears The people took their misfortune philo ophicallv without whining or com ilain they were cool headed and ouraneous Man5 stayed camping n the streets or parks who could ave gotten away With grim Yankee determination the people look to the future of their destroyed city

sending the paper after the subscription date has expired Every weekly newspaper in towns of this size are forced to do this Should we stop subscriptions when the timd expires nine times out of the subscriber would give us a call down for insinuating that his credit was not good Rather than to cast a reflection against the honesty of a subscriber topay a small debt it is next to a necessity for a home paper to continue timehas is necessary for the city dailies or weeklies to follow this rule as their subscrib ers live at a distance and are not personal friends as is the case witn the

should be our choice The Yes or No We have the bibles of the earth With all their holy power and worth And yet we know The world Is wild with disputation As to the true road to salvation The Yes or No

Three Thousand Miles Distant By Sir Robert Ball The following description by Sir Robert Ball of the eruption of Kraka toa will be read with special interest at the present time It is taken from his book The Earths Beginning re cently published by D Appleton Co Until the year 1883 few had ever heard of Krakatoa It was not in habited but the natives from the surrounding shores of Sumatra and Java used occasionally to draw their canoes up on its beach while they roamed through the jungle in search of the wild fruits The island seemed to owe its existence to some frightful eruption of bygone days but for a couple of centuries there had been no fresh out breakIn 1SS3 Krakatoi suddenly sprang into notoriety Insignificant though it had hitherto seemed the little island was soon to compel by its tones of thunder the whole world to pay it in stant attention It was to become the scene of a volcanic outbreak so appall ing that it is destined to be remem bered throughout the ages At first the eruption did not threaten to be of any serious type In fact the good people of Batavia so far from be ing terrified at what was in progress in Krakatoa thought the display was such an attraction that they chartered a steamer and went forth for a pleas ant picnic to the island Many of us I am sure would have been delighted to have been able to join the party who were to witness so interesting a spectacle With cautious steps the more venturesome of the excursion party clambered up the sides of the volcano guided by the sounds which were issuing from its summit There they beheld a vast column of steam pouring forth with terrific noise from a profound opening about thirty yards inwidthAs summer of this dread year advanced the vigor of Krakatoa stead ily increased The noises became more and more vehement These were pres ently audible on shores ten miles dis tant and then twenty miles distant until the great thunders of the vol cano now so rapidly developing astonished the inhabitants that dwelt over an area at least as large as Great Britain and there were other symp toms of the approaching catastrophe With each successive convulsion a quantity of fine dust was projected aloft into the clouds The wind could not carry this dust away as rapidly as it was hurled upward by Krakatoa and accordingly the atmosphere became heavily charged with suspended particles A pall of darkness thus hung over the adjoining seas and islands Such was the thickness and the density of these atmospheric volumes of Krakatoa dust that for a hundred miles around the darkness of midnight prevailed at midday Then the awful Manythousandsitants of the adjacent shores of Su matra and Java were destined never to behold the sun again They were pres ently swept away to destruction in an invasion of the shore by the tremen dous waves with which the seas sur rounding Krakatoa were agitated The development of the volcanic en ergy proceeded and gradually the ter ror of the inhabitants of the surround ing coasts rose to a climax July had ended before the manifestations of Krakatoa had attained their full violence By the middle of August the panic was widespread for the supreme catastrophe was at hand On the night of Sunday August 26 1883 the blackness of the dust clouds now much thicker than ever in the Straits of Sunda and adjacent parts of Sumatra and Java was only occasionally illumined by lurid flashes from the volcano The Krakatoa thunders were on the point of attaining their complete development At the town of Batavia a hundred miles distant there was no quiet that night The houses trembled with the subterranean vio lence and the windows rattled as if heavy artillery were being discharged in the streets and still these efforts seemed to be only rehearsing for the supreme display On the morning of Monday August 27 1883 the rehears als were over and the performance be gan An overture consisting of two or three introductory explosions was succeeded by a frightful convulsion which tore away a large part of the Island of Krakatoa and scattered it to the winds of heaven This supreme effort it was which produced the mightiest noise that so far as we can ascertain has ever been heard on this globe It must have been indeed a loud noise which could travel from Krakatoa to Batavia and pre serve its vehemence over so great a veryinadequateof the eruption of Krakatoa if we bythosewould be little indeed compared with what is recorded on testimony which it is impossible to doubt Westward from Krakatoa stretches the wide expanse of the Indian Ocean On the opposite side from the Straits Rodriguezthed1stance most 3000 miles It has been proved by evidence which cannot be doubted that the thunder of the great volcano attracted the attention of an intelli gent coastguard on Rodriguez who carefully noted the character of the sounds and the time ol theta occur rence He had heard them just four hours after the actual explosion for this is the time the sound occupied on its journey If Vesuvius were vigorous enough to emit a roar like Krakatoa how great would be the consternation of the world Such a report might be heard by King Edward at Windsor and by the Czar at Moscow It would aston ish the German Emperor and all his subjects It would penetrate to the se clusion of the Sultan at Constantino ple It would have extended to the sources of the Nile near the equator It would have been heard by Moham medan pilgrims at Mecca It would have reached the ears of exiles in berIa No inhabitants of Persia would have been beyond its range while pas sengers on half the liners crossing the Atlantic would also catch the mighty reverberation Or to take another illustration let us suppose that a sim ilar earthshaking event took place in a central position in the United States Let us say for example that an explo sion occurred at Pikes Peak as resonant as that from Krakatoa It would certainly startle not a little the inhabitants of Colorado far and wide The ears of dwellers in the neighbor ing States would receive a consider able shock With lessening intensity the sound would spread much farther aroundindeed it might be heard all over the United States The sonorous waves would roll over to the Atlantic coast they would be heard on the shores of the Pacific Florida would not be too far to the south nor Alaska too remote to the north If indeed we could believe that the sound would travel as freely over the great conti nent as it did across the Indian Ocean then we may boldly assert that every ear in North America might listen to the thunder from Pikes Peak if it rivaled Krakatoa Can we doubt that Krakatoa made the greatest noise that has ever been recorded Among the many other incidents connected with this explosion I may specially mention the wonderful sys tem of divergent ripples that started in our atmosphere from the point at which the eruption took place The initial impetus was so tremendous that these waves spread for hundreds and thousands of miles They diverged in fact until they put a mighty girdle round the earth on a great circle of which Krakatoa was the pole The at mospheric waves with the whole earth now well in their grasp advanced into the opposite hemisphere In their progress they had necessarily to form gradually contracting circles until at last they converged to a point in Cen tral America at the very opposite point of the diameter of our earth 8000 miles from Krakatoa Thus the waves completely embraced the earth Every part of our atmosphere had been set into a tingle by the great Miss Ottlile Guenther who was a private audience by Pope Pius X is a Chicago girl ofGuentherLeoXIIIbefore his death Miss Guenther has been taking a hasdoneItalians of Chicago and will resume this when she graduatedfrom eruption The waves passed over our heads the air in our streets the air in our houses trembled from the volcanic impulse The very oxygen supplying our lungs was responding also to the supreme convulsion which took place 10000 miles away It is needless to object that this could not have taken place because We did not feel it Self registering barometers have enabled these waves to be followed unmistak ably all over the globe Such was the energy with which these vibrations were initiated at Krakatoa that even when the waves thus arising had converged to the point diametrically opposite in South America their vigor was not yet ex Continued on next page column 5 AWFUL BALLOON VOYAGE German Military Aeronauts Safe Only After a Terrible Ex perience War Airship Was Driven Five Hun dred tiDes Over Baltic Sea and Dropped in Swedish Snow Bank Barely Averted Drowning The progress of balloon experiments in the German army has just received a severe setback by the fearful experi ences of two members of the Aero static Corps named Wolff and Brand who have returned to Berlin after hav ing been given up for dead following a balloon ascension during which they completely disappeared The two men were blown all the way from Berlin to the Baltic Sea where they were driven by a gale clear across that body of water and finally landed half dead in a little village in Sweden traveling al together more than five hundred miles The story of their flight is one of the most thrilling in the history of bal looning in Europe UNABLE TO MAKE DESCENT The two balloonists caught in the gale in the upper air were blown at terrific speed for three days unable to make a descent without being dashed todeathAs wind seemed to slacken the preparingupon seeing as they dropped from the clouds that the open sea was beneath them They tried to shut the valve but were only partly successful When within a few hundred feet of byWolffsurrounding the gas bag to do it But the balloon still dropped nearer the sea Finally desperate the balloon ists climbed into the balloons rigging and cut the basket from under them Clinging to the cordage about the balloon the two men hung between hope and fear for a few moments as the bag seemed to hover uncertainly The thought came into their minds simultaneously that one must drop off and lighten the weight to save his comrade otherwise both must drown But slowly the bag began to rise once TO CORDAGE FOR HOURS After clinging for hours to the cor dage thousands of feet in the air over the sea the two soldiers made out the land As soon as it was safe the valve was opened again and the balloon was allowed to descend slowly The two men landed in a snow bank within a few miles of a little Swedish village They had to walk two miles almost

the convention which recently met at iiuskogee Indian Territory upon a name for the new state to be added to the Union brings a total of thirtythree states which have adopted Indian titles for etate names The convention after some little discussion decided that the new state should be known as Sequoia as a tribute to the great Cherokee leader and is a fitting honor which America owes to one of the really great red men of this conti nent The Cherokee Indian alphabet was originated by George Gist a half breed known to the tribe as Sequoia He was a statesman and a peaceable lender among the tribe He was an illiterate man but the idea of an alphabet for the Cherokee tribe was conceived from the brands he saw on cattle He carved eightysix charac ters with his hunting knife out of pine bark then he called the wise men together and explained the characters The tribunal council adopted that and in later years one of the tribe translated the Bible Into the Cherokee language through which medium THE HALFBI EED SEQUOIA Christianity was first taught among tho Cherokees It is to Sequoia that the Cherokee nation owes its splendid system of schools While in search of a lost band or Cherokee

timber lot and the gradual decrease in the supply of lumber with the consequent increase in the cost of wood make the erection of fences on the farm a matter of con cern for the landholder heretofore has looked upon wood as a proper material for the construction of an effective fence Metalthat is fence wirehas almost entirely replaced the rails which at one time were considered necessary to make a fence stockproof We still find however that timber is in most localities the cheapest material for fence posts though the supply avail able is becoming scarcer each year and it is possible that in the future it may be necessary in every section A SUBSTANTIAL ROAD of the country to use posts made of iron or concrete even as is now done in many places An essential feature of a rail fence is a comparatively short panel but now that wire is in the majority of cases taking the place of the rail it is questionable whether as many posts are necessary as was the case when rail were used Recent tests were made at an English experiment station to de termine upon the best method of con structing a fence One point considered was whether a fence constructed a dropper is as efficient and durable as one constructed entirely with posts A second point under consideration was the minimum number of posts required In the construction of an efficient and durable fence when droppers are used and the character of the dropper re quired for best results The dropper is a thin vertical brace used to strengthen the stretch of wire between posts As metal is admittedly more durable than wood an endeavor was made to obtain a suitable rigid metal dropper but with out success NOTCH THE CORNER POSTS LOW An error that farmers sometimes make in erecting a fence is that they place the corner supports or struts too near the top of the post and conse quently at too great anangle with the line of the fence so that when the wires are stretched tightly the post is pulled out of the ground notwithstanding that huge bowlders are piled against the post or hung on it in an endeavor to keep it in the ground One fence which has been found to prove very satisfactory consists of square posts and top rail with three or four rows of plain wire fastened on the outside edges of the post instead of through holes bored in the uprights To these wires is fastened ordinary poultry net ting with say an inch and ahalf or twoinch mesh This netting may be strained very tight and will lie as flat as a board the appearance of the fence being thereby greatly improved While the use of barbwire in the construction of fences is regretted ow ing to the injury which it sometimes inflicts upon the live stock there is no doubt that its employment under certain conditions prolongs the life of a fence deterring stock from rubbing against it and unduly straining the plain wires It has been argued that stock soon get to understand how danI gerous barbwire is and when in a quiet condition are rarely injured by playtheyin consequence While there may be some styles of woven fence which will enable the farmer to discontinue barbwire the new material must have suf ficient elasticity to recover from occa sional very severe and and also sufficient to respond to our varied conditions of heat and cold and require no straining after its erec iion The American fence manufactur Europeansthe iS possible to obtain from them fences constructed entirely of metal at small costWhile the unprogressive farmer is to have a few bars to let down in order to admit of the passage of teams or wagons no fence is complete without an entrance and therefore without a gate for at best bars are only makeshifts and a loss of both time and temper It is surprising how common they are when excellent and serviceable light gates can now be pur chased very cheaply and even where the lack of money is an obstacle to this a handy man can with the aid of an axe a hammer and some nails build and hang a strong useful gate with no GATE with other than the expenditure of a few hours labor and certainly in less time than is required in the continual putting down and up of the bars Experiment has shown that it is ad visable to have the openings of the farm gates 16 feet wide or thereabouts in order to admit of the transfer of the Fence by Improperly Placed Corner Supports farm implements from one field to an other Where some fields are planted with small green crops from which the farmer desires to keep his poultry it is thought best that the bottom rail of this gate should be within an inch of the ground that the poultry cannot crawl under The gate posts should be A PLEASING FENCE OF TIMBER AND POULTRY WIRE unusual strains content outlay Distorted quite separate and distinct from any posts used in the construction of the fence as a better effect is obtained without additional trouble if they are slightly higher than the uprights in the gate and higher than the fence posts adjoining the gateway The main entrance to the farm and also the gateways around the dwelling may be still further improved if a little addi tional trouble is taken to square the topsNountil it is painted for not only does painting aid in giving a tidy appear ance but prolongs the life of tie wood It will be better and a saving of time if the timber after being cut up for the gates is given a couple of coats of paint before being put together After the gate is completed and hung it can be given a final coat The first or priming coat should be very thin in fact may be nearly all raw linseed oil The second and last coats will of course be a little thicker and in order to dry hard and with a little gloss should contain a small quantity of tur pentine and boiled oil While tastes may differ as to color results have shown that white seems to give the most satisfaction while tho iron work painted black will make a slight con trast adding to the improved appear ance of the gateway STASISIISR DASHER CHURNS Even in this Day of Creameries But ter Is Made in the Good Old Fashioned Way The chances are ten to one or better that the butter you buy at the grocery store now was made in a creamery for the great bulk of the butter consumed in this country is made in milk estab lishments But there is still some but ter made by hand and we still sell churns right along The greater number of the individ ual churns now sold said a churn manufacturer in Chicago recently in speaking of the growth of the cream ery business are of the cylinder type operated by a crank turning within the churn a wheel with paddles some times like the paddlewheel of a steam boat but we still sell as well churns of the oldfashioned type such as our grandmothers used and such as their grandmothers used before them I might add that the oldfashioned dasher churn is still as it has always been painted blue Who still buys these old styles hand churns in the day of machinemade butter Why so to speak the oldest people and the most modern too They are bought by small farmers keeping only one or a few cows who naturally continue to make their own Where the Cor ner Supports Prevent the Post PullingOut butter and who make it of course with a hand churn Some of these farmers might make more butter than they would require for their own use and the surplus they would sell as they would their surplus eggs to the country store And you find larger farmers too farmers perhaps keeping many cows and selling the bulk of their milk to a creamery still continuing to make the butter that they need for them selves and making it as they have al ways done in a hand churn Such churns are sold to people liv ing in suburban or country homes and keeping cows who make their own butter because they prefer to anyway and they are bought by various people everywhere who want sweet or un salted butter and who make it for themselves in hand churns America exports churns to the West Indies and South America and to New Zealand and Australia and to dairying countries in various other parts of the world but we still supply our own people with the oldfashioned dasher as we did twenty years ago TO TACKLE JTAZERS The hazing trials at Annapolis fol

Education Is in Effect a Country High School The consolidated school question Is a feature of the country school educa tion problem which is rapidly coming to the fore especially in the northwest and it promises much for better farm education The proposition is that six or seven or ten of the crossroads schools in any rural district shall be combined into one larger school and were it not for the question of trans portation of the scholars to and from the central school it would undoubtedly meet with universal favor From an educational point of view the ad vantages of the consolidated school plan are very great Assistant Sec retary of Agriculture Hays is an en thusiastic advocate of the plan and states that where the plan has been put into operation the beneficial results have been manifold The question has been agitated to a considerable extent in his own State of Minn esota due largely to his own efforts Professor Hays is thoroughly alive to the fact that a better scheme of edu cation is needed for the farm boy if he is to keep his foremost position among the worlds agriculturists FOR BETTER FARM EDUCATION The time Professor Hays says has gone by when an ordinary school education will serve for the farm boy The three Rs are not sufficient to enable him to succeed in life He must have special education for farming just as the young man or woman who is to enter professional life has special in struction along the lines ho expects to follow And so the consolidated school comes in with its better educational facilities Canada has taken an advanced stand on this question and is consolidating her country schools In a word the farmers children are being given the advantages of a high school education As President Creelman of the On tario Agricultural College has pointed out the system undoubtedly is from a standpoint of dollars and cents more expensive for the first few years at least but the rural ratepayer has it to decide for himself whether he would rather pay five dollars more per year and secure for his boy or girl such increased benefits as the consolidated school can give or leave them in the hands of an inexperienced girl teacher who perhaps does her best in a little oneroomed school without facilities of demonstration of any kind PRACTICAL FARM SCIENCE One of the most important features of these schools is the school garden where practical farm science is taught in a practical way Such gardens are not however confined to the con solidated schools but are now being kept in connection with a number of the more progressive district schools in various parts of the country They are usually from two to three acres in area divided into experimental and individual plots for each of the pupils ranging in size from six feet square to six by ten or even twenty The general plan of laying out each garden involves 1 a belt of native trees and shrubs surrounding the grounds 2 a halfacre playfield for the boys 3 a lawn bordered with shade trees for the girls 4 a shaded walk each for boys and girls about a hundred yards long 5 an attractive approach to the school consisting chiefly of a piece of open lawn with shrubs and flowers on either side 6 a suitable reservation for individuals and class plots 7 an orchard plot or border 8 a forest plot in which the chief native trees are grown from the seed PLANTS GROWN BY PUPILS The ordinary range of vegetables and a selection of flowering plants are grown in these gardens the pupils themselves furnishing the necessary work In the large schools two hours each week are found sufficient for the garden work and one hour in the smaller in both cases under the supervision of the teacher or a special instructor The school garden serves a double purpose since it not only provides the most practical form of nature study but acts as a valuable in centive in the general school work It is no uncommon sight during the sum mer season to see a public school in session out of doors not with slate and pencil but with hoe and shovel The pupils thoroughly enjoy it They are allowed the proceeds of their plots as their own property and in addi tion may take home the plants left over from thinning out The class plots are reserved as a source of revenue for the school and as a supply in some cases for the school lunches Former Iron Master Andrew Car negie has indorsed the idea

American Rural Improvements They Convey The Idea That We Think But Little Of PosterityThere an old story which xrill bear telling again as it Illustrates well the disadvantages to be over come In a new country It Is of an American traveling In England who when out walking one day stopped In adImirewhich extended without a flaw or blemish from the hedge along the roadway up to the very steps of the bouse An old gardener was at work on the place and at that particular time was pushing a lawn mower across COUNTRY ROAD AND BRIDGE the sward The American hailed him and with the usual freedom and inquisitiveness of his nationality asked many questions as to the conduct of affairs In such an establishment ao the gardener was connected with Tell me he said to the gardener bow do you make a lawn like thIs I have a place In America and I am trying to make a lawn around the house but it doesnt seem to do welIn The old gardener scratched his head and doubtfully at the Ameri can he said You must have a good subsoil and a good surface soil and the sod must be well laid Then you must roll It and cut it and water It and keep on doing this until ifa right A CENTURY TO MAKE A LAWN The American agreed with him that the process was simple and then asked How long will I have to do this before the lawn Is like that one The old gardener again spoke fully but finally gave it as his opinion that if his directions were followed for anywhere from fifty to a hundred years the results would be all that could be desired This same idea might also apply to the roads and bridges throughout Eng land for much of their excellence IB due to the fact that their foundations were laid scores of years ago and generation after generation of workers has been tinkering at them ever since In fact the roads built by the Romans now serve as the foundations for some of the best Known English highways and to the south of Lon don east and west through the beauti ful county of Surrey there is a road now greatly patronized by the owners of motor cars which in its beginning was the highway beaten hard by the sandaled feet of the early Britons as they toiled to the east const from Wales with their backbreaking bur dens of tin This same road waa af terwards improved in Its texture and grades of its being the high way for the pilgrims of western Eng land en route to Canterbury It is still shaded

were to be concentrated upon a narrow track only wide enough for a farmers wagon great Improvement in results would be noted for it Is of course much cheaper to lay the foundations build up the body and surface a road fourteen feet wide than to put Into shape a highway which at its narrowest point the ambitious Americans have extend ed to forty feet This in itself Is a point which if

and graduate of West Point is in Paris at the outbreak of the great war between France and Germany He engages in a balloon reconnoissance for the French and barely escapes capture being swept into northern France where he is wrecked in the grounds of the Chateau Lagunay He is rescued by the daughter of the Count Lagunay Aimee with whom he falls in love The Germans advance Adams defends Aimee from insult at the hands of Griesman Colonel of Cavalry Adams joins the Hussars under Lowenberg an old friend and later assists in an am bush of the French Word reaches him at camp that Aimee is again in the hands of Griesman lVith FleiscJi mann a gigantic sergeant of the Em perors bodyguard he impresses an automobile and goes to her rescue In a terrific sword fight he kills Griesman and two others and proceeds with Aimee to the home of her cousin at Bethel Chapter VI For two delicious days I remained at Bethel with Aimee Then early in the afternoon Fleischmann brought up the big car we set out for camp for ob ious reasons taking a direct road that did not pass the Chateau Lagunay Reaching the outskirts of the camp we found a host of war balloons Inflated and ready for ascent Others were already soaring above us and looking far to the south we saw the French balloons high in air observing the German movements As we went farther south for the camp covered an area some ten miles square we found that a large part of the army had moved It was evident that events were approaching a crisis At headquarters I sent in my name to the Emperor Fleischmann pa ing up and apprehensionrorfor myself certain of my ability to make satisfactory explanation I waited calmly When I was finally ushered into the au gust presence I saluted and related my story The Emperor waved his hand as though to dismiss me But I persisted and when I finally drew from my pocket the documents I had taken from Gries mans pocket and told him of Grevoir Griesmans supposed interpreter his pression changed lIe ran over papers prominentFrenchscheme of invasion data concerning the German forces and realizing that Gries enemyhecomment upon my abrupt departure from the camp and a caution that I conduct myself more circumspectly in the future responslhleforsion that I had really abducted the big sergeant against his will A little smile flickered over his face at this Then he againYou Lowenberg he said in dismissing me There is work for you on the right wing We will be In action ton rnn or the day after You and Fleischmann can redeem yourselves at the front Until you offend again I forgive you both When we had patiently endured Lowen bergs scolding he had been very much afraid for us learning that orders were planformy was assembled in force between our camp and the Marne River The first contact had occurred the day before when a German brigade of armored automo hues undertook to reconnoiter to the south The French had sent out a similar brigade for the same purpose and they met near a small village The two forces came together in a mad charge The steel conical prows of the great cars rammed at high speed crashing into and over one another and finishing in a tangle of wreckage from which but one German machine had emerged in condition to re turn to camp An assault with such a force upon cavalry or infantry would be irresistible but upon an enemy of its own kind it meant mutual annihilation It was a striking example of the unfitness of such machines for general warfare At dark we were ready for the advance moving under cover of night to avoid the aUseeing eyes of the airships- A brief statement of the military situation seems necessary in order that the reader may understand the nature of our undertaking As has been stated French occupied the Marne River ChalonssurMarne to BarleDuc fromItween these towns the south bank Marne rises sharply from the water TOGETHER 1tight of perhaps two hundred feet fall g away at the rear in a sunny slope overed with vineyards and orchards On the edge of this cliff the French had con structed sunken fortifications manned by great cannon mounted on disappearing carriages alternating with mortars for hurling novel projectiles of which they had a choice collection as we afterward learned In all this precipitous bank there is no break save one where a road comes dawn to the river crosses a narrow stone bridge and turns toward Rheims On the north side of the river the bank is low and the land stretches away for miles to the north east and west forming the great Catalunlan Field an ideal place for military operations Here resting on the river and protected by the great guns on the fortified cliffs the French had massed their second and third armies and were working north with rifle pits and earthworks expecting to overwhelm the German invaders German advance had moved south eoSit ten miles the right resting on Sil tory the left on the Aisne River It was planned to send strong detachments east and to hold the banks of the Marne fROM NQTf5 D OIN5C- omjed II byVmMacKrill The center would then attack press the French back upon the river and before they could get across strike them on both flanks or drive them into the water To Lowenberg fell the special task of moving further up the Marne to Monte Peller the only other point at which the French could cross Here the south bank fell away and the north bank rose in three hills the center of the trio being really a small mountain with a flat top which commanded the bridge below and the banks of the Marne for some distance The French fortilications did not extend this far and the main danger was in the possibility of an opposing force reaching the hill before we could get there- With a detachment of ten infantry regi ments and one of cavalry we pushed on through the night and before dawn reached the Sillery forest which extended to the base of the Monte Pelier Here we encamped to await the signal to advance and the arrival of a regiment of artillery Early in the afternoon we heard firing openedHourlysnappy bark of the highpower field guns blended with the roll of rifles and the wierd howl of the new multiplex ribbon Catlings which sent out a continuous stream of explosive bullets bursting on the slightest impact and tearing their victims horribly Presently the great twelve inch guns on the high banks came into play Their booming reports echoed through the heavens bespeaking enor mous projectiles The din was fearful I thanked my stars that I was not within the darkness came on we could catch the flashes or light as the French guns belched out their tons of iron and the mortars their pots of acid fire and liquid gas It was not until afterward that I learned the full extent of the devil ishness of mans inventive ingenuity in providing means for the destruction of human life Then came our signal High in the air to the east appeared a shower of golden sparks and the mysterious echoing boom of an aerial projectile was borne to our ears The sparks paled and fell and from their midst floated three blue stars It means that the Frenchare retreating to the river and that Monte Pelier must he taken said Lowenberg He gave an order and the word was passed on The artillery had not comeit never came as a matter of fact Some one had blun dered But we waited not Here was our task and we moved toward it with came to an end In front of greatdarkLowenbergFlelschmann as we emerged from the woods the troops directlyInlet whistled past my ear Another flash and report another and another each farther up the hill Silence fell broken only by the tramp of thousands of feet AVe saw that our advance was known to the French but we pushed on It was no time to stop We had covered half of the distance and were climbing steadily when the whole top of the hill lighted up and a hail of lead descended The front row of cavalry went down a struggling mass of men and horses It was no place for cavalry Again and again came that terrible flash The crashing report as of thousands of rilles and the song of lead in our ears was terrible The storm was too heavy Offi cers and men alike threw themselves on the ground and sought shelter behind the boulders with which the hill was strewn or in depressions in the ground The fire became continuous And now the French loisted great searchlights that revealed our ranks The sharp white rays dazzled our eyes and we could see nothing Some eight thousand troops hugged the ground sheltered and unsheltered Men groaned agonyHorsesgallopingdownAt brief and regular intervals came that sheet of flame and the hail of bullets It was death to retreat and death to remain So we lay until daylight As the dawn broke and the sun lit the sky the French continued their destruction in a more diabolical fashion From the top of the hill they rolled great balls of tough paper which broke on the rocks and scattered burning acids and noxious gases Directly above the point where we three lay there was a welldefined hum mock which deflected these hideous imple ments of warfare else I should not have survived that experience Of those who were not so protected few escaped The whole side of the hill for half a mile was covered with dead and dying During the night the firing on the east had diminished but with the dawn it opened again and the heavens were rent with the crash and roar of mighty guns which continued all day without intermission The firing above us ceased how ever and the horrible balls of acid came no longer Lowenberg concluded that the French ammunition had given out and that an attack was again possible A slnI gle regiment had been left behind as a re serve An orderly was sent back and presently we heard the bugle sound the advanceIt a magnificent sight to see them come the woods and climb the slope They adopted the Indian style of advance in open order sneaking from rock to rockthere were no trees to give shelter When they reached us we rose and led them I kept near Fleischmann who was jealously guarding Lowenberg On we went a few yards at a time We were less than a hundred yards the top when the bugler at Lowenbergs side gave the signal for a rush As the clear note rang out the men straightened from their crouching positions and drawing together went up on the run shouting their stirring war cry Vorwaerts Preussen As we reached the last yard of the as scent the very air over our heads burst into flame Had we been a foot higher our whole line would have gone down as did the cavalry the night before But the French aimed too high with this their last volley and the next moment we were upon clashing against a wall of bristling bayonets Steel struck steel all along the line Fleischmann had fallen back slipping on a loose Now he fairly leaped ahead of us his great sabre sweeping down a row of bayonets as a scythe in ripe wheat The French stood in a pit dug around the brow of the hill and fought like demons There seemed to be thousands of them Our revolvers were emptied immediately and it was then a primitive fight hand to hand face to face shoulder to shoulder struck out to right and left with but one ideaselfpreservat- ion As in a dream I heard the deadly clash of metal the puffing and grunting of straining men the blasphemy the shriek of the wounded Farther around the hill top our men were falling back and farther yet they were clear inside the line driving the French before them A few of our men gathered about us and almost surrounded by the infuriated French we held our desperationonce in a lifetime We were fairly walled in with the dead yet as fast a went down others came forward There seemed to be no end to the cut and slash the spurting of red blood the glare of angry eyes looking into our own with murderous hate Lowenberg was on my right at his right Fleischmann wielding his salre like a flail Steady boys he cried and again Steady Well have them on the run But in my heart I knew that it could not be so that we must go down in blood and dust victims of a misguided ugly squat Frenchman who had been felled some time before by one wrlJgledupdesperate thrust sent his bayonet into Lowenbergs vitals Ah God how it sick ened me My beloved friend sank with a gasp A mist obscured my sight for a moment I weakened and my sword wavered Before I could recover the butt of a musket appeared in the air immediately before me and descended upon my head My ears rang like a foundry The whole world seemed suddenly to be whirling like a Fourth of July pinwheel with multi tudes of sparks flying tottered back ward and fell heavily upon the pile of dead in the trench As I went down I looked at Fleischmann He stood erect with feet well spread like some great wargod a sabre in each hand hewing smashing cutting his his jaws set with determination He had thrown away his coat long before his hat was gone a cut on his temple let the blood trickle down over his bronzed cheeks Into my heart came a great love for this mighty fighter Then my light went out and the horrid noise of war faded away into the great silence It was Fleischmanns voice in my ears that wakened me I lay the grass in a small open shed He was bathing my head with cool water Quickly recollection came back to me and stung into activity by my supposed danger I rose m feet But the danger was past Save for the dead and wounded there was not a Frenchman in sight Fleischmann was as as before the tight began He told me that just as lIe was about to give up his comrades came to the rescue We were in full possession but at what a fearful cost Out of ten thousand men barely five hundred to answer the call I found Lowenberg lying on a heap of straw his light fiickering his mind wan dering At intervals he gave orders out to his wife or sang snatches of German ballads One of his under officers who was a physician sat near He shook his head in answer to my inquiry There was no hope- Presently my friend turned his head and looked at me with eyes suddenly grown clear Adams he said faintly tell the boys it was a good light They were true Prussians And telltell his Majes ty He half rose and raised his arm with clenched fist For God and the Fatherland he cried in ringing tones and fell back dead We turned the French guns in the direc tion of tho and prepared to hold our little fort for the expected assault For several hours there had been little or no firing to the cast where the main armies were engaged It was late after noon now The sky was becoming over cast and the wind iwas rising Presently the sound of firing rose again All the guns in the world seemed to be going off attonce From our elevated po plaInIput it to my eyes There ay the panorama of war Like moving patches of dead grass appearedJthe opposing forces The brown khaki of the Germans and the soft gray seaislandcloth of the French gave distinction enough There was no smoke for this is the lay of smokeless powder The center of fighting appeared to be well down the bend of the Marne and as I watched I could see that the water was full of black specks The French were being forced into the river A large body of the gray was hurrying up the river bank making for the Monte Peller crossing And we with but half a thousand men to defend it The increased in force The skies grew dark And now coming from the south appeared a shoal of small airships of a new dirigible type with fans and rudders They circled above us hardly a quarter of a mile away and swung down toward the battlefield heading into the gale in regular formation And as I watched a strange thing happened The ships were poised directly over the victorious Germans Suddenly a series of peculiar popping reports came to my ears I saw the Germans breaking scattering running away from the French The ground beneath them behind them in front of them sparkled like the phosphorescent ocean I saw the whole army disorganizedhorl1etrack and as the sky lightened for a moment I saw that the track was hu manthe bodies of men prone upon the earth I called Fleischmann Look I The army is retreating See the sparks around them What does it mean THE TWO FORCES CAME IN A TERRIFIC CHARGE from from them stone upon calm cried river wind cried He put the glasses to his eyes Ah dynamlteIboys are being blown to pieces We can not escape Before he could see more approachIngsheets shutting out the plain and the armyWe under the little shed depressed and silent It was very dark The wind blew fiercely In spite of the rain however Fleischmann insisted on making a tour of the lines to see that the men were on guard Faithful Fleisch mann Let me pay tribute here to your unwavering loyalty withthesmash and the little shed tumbled about hummingInbees wings many times intensified Some enormous bulk hovered over me Ireached upward in involuntary defense and my hands grasped what I knew inv stantly to be the basket of one of the dynamite ships I was carried along with cIt fearing to let go My feet dragged over the ground and the next moment I swung off into space but I kept my wits and throwing a leg over the edge of the bas ket clambered in Though it was in tensely dark I knew that I was rising I felt around the basket It was unoccupied save by myself In one corner a small motor sparkled going at high speed I had been sufficiently associated with aeronauts to know that this controlled the steering fans but that the ship would float without its operation And with a shrewd suspicion that I might want the power later I switched off the current The humming stopped and I floated as in a subterranean lake- I was very tired My head was aching and I realized that I had not eaten for a day and a night Fumbling around I found another switch and turning it was delighted by the illumination of the terior of the basket from several tiny in candescent lamps In one corner stood a wicker hamper labeled Provisio I opened it eagerly and found a of crackers cheese sardines canned meat and sweet chocolate A rack on the side held three tins of water So in reason able comfort I sat there in the basket and ate my lunch The rain had ceased the wind fell far above me appeared a pale mist through which the moon broke in mellow light The mysterious silence the absence of apparent motion as I sailed through that moonlit sea brought peace to my mind I thought quietly of Aimee of Lowenberg dead and gone of brave Fleischmann left behind in the little fort of all the happenings of that terrible fight It seemed far away as though in the dead past a thousand years ago And when I had thought until I was weary I sent up to God a little prayer for courage knowing that my life was in im minent danger and then lay me down to sleepTo be continued AND THEY NEVER KNEW A Little Story of Real Life The great financier buried his face in his hands as a great flood of bitterness crowded his soul He had locked the door of his private office and de nied himself to every one all morning just as years before he had shut the world and its people from his heart When but a child he had been branded as a bad boy and other children were forbidden to play with him He had grown up asking him self why no one loved him That he was bad he had learned as a parrot would but the real meaning was too vague to be understood by his childish mind At school no one had understood him Once when he was disobedient a plan had been conceived to punish his favorite teacher He was so grieved that lie ran away for fear he might again cause pain or punishment to the one he loved No one came and asked why he did solie was expelled That to starve to die was better than to live without sympathy had been his early conclusion for truly was he being eaten up with a gnawing hunger for sympathy and companionship Once when he was a young business man successful indeed because he gave his lifehis whole energyto work some one started a report that he was dishonest in a deal He cried out against the injustice of a world which would not see He was tried and the judge who no doubt meant to be honest decided against him because circumstances were not in his faorINot one came say know I be hove you are honest No wonder like a haunted thing which would fly to shelter from the eyes of the world he lived alone in his grief of being misunderstoodYears when it was found that falselyIto be just His eyes were kind and seemed to appeal to you to respond but his mouth was set and firm and lines which once expressed sweetness had now deepened into furrows of care and coldnessAs sat there dreaming his life over he wondered who was ever denied sympathy as he A rap came on the door and he ad mitted his bookkeeper a woman She looked frightened and there were traces of tears in her eyes He asked her to be seated Anyone In trouble was welcome particularly this woman whom he had more than admired I have come she said to ask what you are going to do with me There is money missing from tho safe There is no way to prove my innocence for I believe I alone have the combination and I am too poor to re turn the money Of course you can not know or understand that I would not stealand the woman wept bitterly Why do you say I cannot under stand he asked I do not know she said I only felt you would notno one ever does We are born in one sphere and forced to live in another where it is all mis trust and bitterness- I do know I do understand he woman looked at him through her tears nnd saw two great eyes or kindness yet she dared not believe You really do not think I took the money she asked And if I didnt would you care other than for the disgrace Yes oh yes I should want you to think me honest because I know how you hate dishonesty Then I do believe in your innocence There are none who can so sympa thise as those who have suffered and I only hope you may never suffer as I have But you sir are rich she said Yes in money but as for friends I have none How she wished to tell him how she admired and loved him But she was a woman and only a bookkeeper so she thanked him for his trust in her but forgot to offer him the word of sympathy and he thinking no one modestyforSo the word which trembled on his lips when he saw her troubled was left unsaid FITS orneryouneaafterfirst treatiseDEThR FENCE The fence it iuns
