brought home to particular interests The recom mendation of a committee of an of railroad men is bound to carry weight The increasing scarcity of tics is adding materially to the cost of railroad construction and maintenance The price is said to be rapidly approaching a prohibi five figure The situation is one with which railroad men have been familiar in recent years But the engineers are not satisfied with knowing that a situation exists What can be done about it The recommendation points the way Each railroad must have a assistant who will make a study of the tic problem What is the visi

are there or should there be about cutting timber for tics Can any satisfactory substitute for tim ber ties be found How can the railroads cooperate with the government in plans for conser vation and forestation Intelligent answers to such and similiar questions would have great value The combined judgment of a number of railroad experts of this type would potent Keeping in mind primarily selfish

and pains in one or both legs sometimes shooting from hip to ankle If a determined effort is made to continue using the affected these symptoms grow persistently more severe the leg may become quite rigid with stretched tendons as if it were on the rack The dis tinctive symptom however is that all these symptoms cease when the leg is allowed to rest The limping is the direct result of weakness stiff ness and pain When these subside as result of rest which they al ways seem to do then for a time there is no limp and hence the name intermittent limping When the symptoms are at their height there is a great deal of conges tion the veins are distended with blood the leg and especially the foot looks dark and there may be an outbreak of little spots on the skip In conjunction with these symp toms is found another which is very significant No pulse can be felt in the back artery of the foot showing that the arterial circulation is at fault Unless properly treated this trouble may go on to very disagree able and finally grave results A condition of muscular atrophy may set in with continuous pain in spite of rest and in advanced stages firs gangrene may develop which calls for surgical intervention This trouble is believed to be caused by an insufficient supply of blood to the affected part It is thought that the reason why the symptoms are not noticed or rather are not present during rest is then the bloodsupply is sufficient for the small demand but that as soon as the sufferer demands from his limb any work at all it requires more nourishment This disease persist for years and the treatment is that of meeting the symptoms as they arise rest in the earlier stages is not advisable but the amount of exer should be strictly controlled Massage and treatment by

there is no wind as the temp erature of the two wires must the same whether the sur rounding temperature rises or tails In case of a current of air striking the wire there will be a difference of

down the side of a steep hollow tn ward the home of Tom F Taylor a mile or two from the Cliffs of Clifty in Todd County Here as at Haleys Mill we quite unexpectedly We caught Uncle Tom In what he a puzzling predicament Mis house was filled with visitors from Indiana Where to roost us question he could not deride to his own satisfaction The idea of letting old friends like us stop else where was one he said he could not entertain for a moment While we were in the midst of this discussion whom should we see coming down into this same hollow but Uncle Charles Cousin Alvin Brother John The old rule that there is always room fur one more had run its limit before we ar rived Now there were five more on the scene and all good friends tooUncle Tom felt that owing to the coming of this overflow he could do nothing but hitch up one of his wagons and take Urn load of peaches to the Skillet that is to what was once Bivensville now known as duty but frequently Lickdkillet He explained to us that the only roofs he could offer on his place were those of his barn We had all at sonic time or other experienced the feat of a bed in a barn but in a smoke house was a novelty that appealed to the entire crowd To Uncle Tons surprise we the smoke house put in a lick and soon our fumigated quarters were ready We found no trouble in relocating our Uncle Toms Cabin after eating supper and bidding chouse tr w Btifor hci 9ti was AY v shining bright Our quarters were far more com fortable than one would imagine and also the source of more fun than you can shake a stick at It was a log house some 12 feet square and stripped inside and out even more as one of the boys said than some we have seen oh the bank of Pond Creek In fact it was so that not a stream nor a single beam of moonshine could even a drop of moonshineThe were artistically ated with hickory meat hooks from some of which there were suspended a number of sausages These fine specimens of ground hog prompted the remark from John that I nev er saw such sausage in all my barn He referred of course to the days he slept in a barn traveling with a threshing machine outfit At night he slept in the house of the farmer On the puncheon floor in one cor ner was a half filled salt barrel which we used for a lantern stand Near jt lay a nails In another were half a dozen jugs which otter an investigation we found contained vinegar In the center of the room encir riled by our improvised beds altar on which evidently many a chip of hicfcpry and sasafras had been sacrificed to tho cure and flavor of Ham Uncle Charley warned us that no fresh was ever placed j a smpke house night with PUt bfjng snioked we had better a cgfpX As predicted jthe smoke canue pr fhere were four clay pipes in ppcratjon assjstecj by one cigarejtte pond And so IRQ came the conviction that wp part hog for Uncle Charley explain ed the laws of digestion according to which he who eats hogs becomes just that much of a hog His of our fate so logically caused us to sit back on our hams and grunt our apprehension At five in the morning we heard the breakfast horn sounded from the kitchen over one hundred yards away We promptly answered all right and then proceeded to dress by putting on our shoes and hats JJjit lo and behold we discovered thaj J e dtoor aJ but one latch and latch thumb ojLh of them 9 oc oc6o was- a andsmokehouse

taken for one of good cheer In a half houi the horn was again heard and so were our voices In this manner the noises alternated until an hour by sunUncle Tom now began to fear we might be taking our breakfasts in the smoke house and ill our hoister ous hilarity founder on his sausage So he walked over to give us warn ing On his arrival at this Shrine of Ham he discovered the cause of our failure to respond to the blast of his horn When he unlocked the door rushed out like pigs from a pig pen an action likely due to the fact that Uncle Charley had us we were just that much of a I am digressing I intended to tell you about the Cliffs of Clifty Uncle Tom had spent around the Cliffs and was familiar with all their nooks and crooks In fact without him as a guide we not only would have seen nothing but would very likely have lost our selves Our first stop was at the Walter McGehee rail located at the head of the hollow in which our genial host lives It is a very spot A sheet of water a yard wide falls some 50 ft over a concave precipice down upon a large pile of moss covered and fern clad stones tilted at all conceivable angles The stream then continues its course through the hollow and I suppose flows on forever After a glance at this living we continued our walk to the town of Clifty near which lav the eanmn VV T ern half of Todd is a rolling coiihv try of a rich limestone sort and that the northern part is hilly and brok en and its soil as a rule Is more or less sandy The soil of the table lands or rolling flats is consider ed better than that of the hillsides while the ground in the valleys and especially along the banks of the creeks and under the cliffs IB ex tremely rich The rain falling on the southern half of the county finds Its way into the Cumberland River This terri tory however is drained by two tributaries of the Green River namely by Pond River which the water from the northwest ern part and by the Clifty Creeks which are the outlet for the north eastern section Ill not attempt to say definitely how many Clifty creeks there are here nor can I explain which is which fur I like many of the other men who discuss the question must sooner or later admit that I cant just tell However East Clifty or Big seems to be the name given to the creek passing near Deer Lick This same creek further down is by Jerico Bridge below the mouth of Wolf Lick and then flows into Mud River West Clifty rises in the Rosewood neighborhood of Muhlenberg county In fact the town of Rosewood is located on the divide separating the waters of West from Bateast Creek It was over this bridge that Gen forest and his cavalry rode when they spent the night in Cisney on their ride from HopkinsvIIle going via Xireenvilje to Rochester Speaking of Rosewood and since I likely am going to confuse you on a suliipc on which I myself am con fused I can here with equal incon sistency allude to the fact that Rose wood was so called by Jack Wright in honor of Tom Greenwood and that the town is so called Cisney af ter the good old pioneer Bob Cisney On this West Clifty is the well known bluff and camping ground of Sulphur Springs Below tho June tion of West and South Clifty

down through the hol low for about half a mile where it is jnincd by another coming from Suphtir Lick Hollow Their waters continue another quarter and then mingle with the currentof South Clifty are many Wild Cat Hollows scattered throughout the State but this ore near the town of Clifty is undoutcdly the king of them all It is the Yosemite of western Ken tuckyAt the head of Wild Cat Hollow is a waterfall twisting its way over three or four terraces until at the foot of the last plunge its waters are rolled into a deep pool This pool is the source of a narov stream which is stated flows thorough the HollowAt head the floor of the can yon has a breadth of about 50 ft but gradually widens until near its junction with Sulphur Lick Hollow distance of about a half a mile it attains a width of 50 yards or more On either side of this big winding hollow the cliffs rise in towering masses from one hundred to two hundred feet They are indeed dizzy heights and as Uncle Tom said a man must look twice before he can see the top Most of these walls are more or less perpendicular and in some cases lean over the floor It is the narrowness of the bottom combined with the height of its sidesthat makes this box hol lee wonderful and unusual sight M The rimitof Wild Cat Hollow is a few pine and hard wood treeSj Some of these have found further down the wall themselves on small Qlhe mountain birch clings ous growth of spread over a ferncirapsd Jedge leaving however the greater part of the gray sand to contrast with this green of the growing plants floor of the hollow is an

members of the fiscal court Under the new law schools are maintained by local tax ation the law providing that as much as 20 cents on the 100 of taxable property and 1 poll may be levied Most of the coupties in the state have levied the maximum as they have realized that no fund is so important The members of our fiscal court saw proper to make a levy of 10 cents on property and 50 on poll This will yield only about 5000 which is entirely in adequate and the board of asks that an additional 5 be levied This will still leave the board greatly hampered in its work and fall short of the needs of the children and it is hoped that the request will be granted since we owe no duty greater than that of providing educational opportunities of the best for the children Straj t lice Taken up as a

of the relative value of Knglish and Champin grafts leaving two eyes on tho scions and leaving only one preliminary callnsing in land planting out in the nursery im mediately after grafting and enlluping in straw covered with sand The used varied from onefourth to onehalf inch in diameter and were from six to nine inches long The low er cut was made through the knot of the bud and the last intcrnode of the upper left as long as possible All the bulls on he stock were carefully re Vioved a deep cut being made in order to remove adventitious buds at the base of the main bud Scions were prepared In n similar way except that the buds were left r TIt t the California vines cuts GRAFTS FOR GRAPE CUTTINGS t English Cleft J End to End The scions having only one eye were cut through the second knot in order to leave the eye protected bj n closed Intcrnode With the scions having eyes the upper cut was ninth about Inch above fhe Second bud rye Cure was token to prevent the drying out of the cuttings and of the grafts grafting as originated in France was practiced in some in stances The number of successful grafts obtained bj this method was tote but those that did unite made

grafts was slightly greater than lint of time English cleft The sxicceasi Kngllsh cleft grafts however were considered superior to the other In the matter of completeness and strength of union The experiments with twoeye nUll oneeye scions were on the whole hi favor of the use of two eyes The difference callusing the grafts in sand and planting them in the nursery as soon as made was very striking previously callused produced 61 per cent of good unions vhije the others produced but 20 per cent There wes nlso a differ ence In the growth of the grafts in favor of those callused in sand GOOD Cxpert Fruit ironer Think Saltnlilt Soil Can He Found In Alt Part of the Country The post season has been one that Las mode peach culture more interest ing thou any other season that I rec ollect in Illinois from the fact that they have shipped an excellent kind of peaches to market and I suppose n reasonable amount of money Vu il p l to talk about peach sections It used to bp supposed that it was confined to certain parrot territories some of them down east one of them over In Michigan another Jn southern Illinois but the spirit of commercial ism has led men to sturdy requirements for successful culture of various kinds of crops one of them of course be ing the peach nnd that study has to hunting for suitable locations Knowing the requirements we find there are millions of acres of good pearls region I have no idea of how much undeveloped firstclass peach land there is in the United States and the transportation companies have made possible the delivery of peaches grown in any section of the United States to any other part of the United States with due dispatch and In good order That leaves commercial peach In a position where it is n question perhaps in the near future f n survival of the fittest n but humankind seems to know no other law but the survival of the fittest In the pursuit of time almighty dollar we know no limit to our am bitionx Where acres of peaches were planted n few years ago whole solid sections are growing todaj The of course has been developed and extended by the same transportation facilities the consumption of nil fruits seems to be on a rapid increase although we must doubt as to whether It ton keep up with the wonderful in crease in the production K Merrill In Farmers Review Dont Jfeiclcet the Gnrtlen Gardens that pay best are those that
