YorkI J AjGood Strong Letter From a Boy Who Wants to Seethe Bar t f r zoom Voted Out of Washington jCounty f Valley Hill Ky August 3Edito- rSlinIt has been a soiree of great pleasure for me to read in the last few issues of your valuable paper the com ments of others on the vital subject local option I am proud to know that our county has such members as thos who have openly avowed them selves against the great liquor traffic QrrfidVon so extensively within its realms and sincerely hope that these may influence others to do a great and loyal deed toward the restoration and preservation of manhood among our youth of today It is these fathers and sons who are voters that are to determine whether or not our county shall henceforth be infested with the great curse of intoxi cating liquors which reduces to debauch ery so many of our young men who would have probably been numbered with our greatest men bad it not been for the dread deicer ffl 8 the curse is regarded very ijstfuctly in the holy scriptures IhaVehadthe pleasure of listening to our ablest lecturers hi Various places IIand I wish eachoreader to understand hly that as a lecturer full of vim krid common gm er one who knows his business in wit anJThumor our own Hon I H Thurman is first on the list wiffi the writer In his speeches he clearly sets forth facts concerning the welfare of our county directly and in c endlessiinstate of affairs is mended link by link day by day with the youth of our country to such an extent that every boy old enough to cast a vote in this great battle of right and wrong who was under the sound of his eloquent lec tures should stamp the stencil together with their heart and soul against the b great common destroyer of our youth I have friends both old and young who are addicted to the use of alcoholi- liquors friends whom I trust will make an effort to reform and set a commend able example before younger boys who are to take the stand of their predecessors and it would be a great bless ing to rear the next geheration to know nothmgof the follies ii the use bf their beverage It would be a mark on the royal book of life for every earnest worker in this battle I have friends who are merely in the bloom of youth that are permitting these alcoholic liquors to lay siege to physical body and destroy the moomal state of mind willnoThese young friends doubt praise their fathers and friends who make an effort to have the curse put awa from their door where they can not govat will and secure any amount desir d and who will notonly be rid of its use and effect but have perfect health restored which is alone the greatest blessing bestowed upon man kind and to have it destroyed absorbed entirely from your system by strong drink is something to be abhorred Young men do not regard the sacred loveof dutiful mother whose heart bleeds at the of their son becoming a drunkardand he in return hasnt enough manhood about him td say No when the evil doer passes him a social dram How are we to ever become a tem perate body of moral citizens who care for life and home who are willing to sacrifice life to make home a harbor for happy hearts whose happiness is not tobe blighted by the curse of strong drink By not having whisky or other intoxicating liquors around of course And the point is will you help to have that state of affairs by lending a helping hand to one another and when the 25th of this month comes to decide this very important subject Fathers will act wise by getting it away from their sons who will ever sing praises to them for sodoing And by hearty co operation I gee nothing between us and an1 overwhelming majority for a dry evlntuallcounty and a State I notice one1pointinthe whisky side that has set rive to thinking During the past weeks most every man and boy myself included in this section have received mall pamphlet from well thats the question Where does the Stuff comeifrom It is direct from the Wall Street whisky headquarters ii New York But what nave we to do with them Why is it that they will print such fictitious matter and send it to this county Yet there re mains another question unanswered however I have a plausible theory as to the answer This matter is printed we know not where nor by whom and it is of other States not outs the one we are working for but others in whom we are not interested in the least and in the unreasonable arguments they bring in what happened in Englan in 1743 in regard to the use of whiskand the in crease of its use after taking a similar course upon its sale that ye are now to take Have not the people grown wiser since that time It is reasonable that they have and why confound them withantiquity when it isa modern move And then the question ComeS How do these Wall Street misers know the evedn e legal voters and know them well We are not personally acquainted with these gentlemen I mean these known Whisky men not gentlemen in the line of a virtuous cause but who are trying to deceive the people of this State by giving unreliable statements of no definite origin and probably questiosn was instigated = useless matter firs none other than foolhardy people listen to As seeing is believing we didnt see that and never will Yet how do they know the direct address of our citizens they are bound to have them furnished direct or they could not have such an efIcientaddressing sys tem Next who furnished these names It wasnt any nah of high standing o n ict must have originated with the pro moters of the evil assailant of ever mans ou1 And they must have been well acquainted with these men and boys to give their names so correctly Now who can conscientiously do such a thing knowing at the time that he is committing a sin in the first degree almost a murderer just t ic next thing If this question should airy that is the whisky side and the cause should be directly through this form of upholding evil what it be called when it would elsfcould of many souls descending g destruction And Why not stand firm and resolute against the accursed stuff and have jit placed beyond our State I do not think howeJer that any whisky man in our county could be the cause of the outpour of this fictitious advertising matter in behalf of the whisky dealer because of the awfulness of the charge were it made known openly In conclusion I wish to say dear friends do be loyal am yet a minor and haveto withstand the temptations of whisky in its de thdealing vices every day or almost every day and for my sake and in behalf of other boys I beseech you with all earnestness of a sincere heart Dp cast aside all malice and begin at home take the evils of this question place them at your door size yourself up in a drunkards grave and vote as your conscience dictates and I am here to state that whisky will be cast higher than Hamon It iR a moral county we want and that we must have Friends in the name of a God who loves every soul but de worthlessJAMES MORAN Ju STABLE FOR

here iri Lancaster and the success lies entirely with th appointment of police officers whoa absolutely fearless and determined to enforce the law The temptation fo sell whisky in a local option

movemade by suspicious characters it 0 doesnt take much time to locate an offender The Record is thoroughly con vince that it is absolutely impossible to buy a drop ot whisky or beer iri Lancaster

the few blundering words I send in behalf of the local option question that is being discussed in thisand other counties I am thankful to say that I believe if all precincts are as much in favor of local option as this one the need be no fear of this poisonous dri n being sold in our countythe drink that destroys many homes that otherwi wjoujd be happy While some say if whisky is voted out the county will be ruined the laboring man cant g more than half price for his work the farmer cant sell his products for anyr thing and many other such weak argu menu What has whisky got to do with the

say they can go to town without getting whisky anti they know eyerybody else could oes look like iany one could go where tpere is whisky without getting drunk but to some the temptation is so great that it is almost impossible for them t resist And why not put this poisonous stuff where they cant get it It rums a mans character ruins hint nientally morally physical- and financially Oh if all the people would cry out with one vqice for local option I certain it would be one ot the happi times with home that they ever experi enced and nobody would be hurt Th saloon keepers might think they were hurt but it would be one of the grandest things that ever happened for them Why do they wantto drag the poor innocent boy into the saloon the devils trap Why teach them to be lovers of whisky If the

WONDERFUL From The LaRue County iterald in Regard to Eocal Option t NoE Onjyhe Town But The County Has Been Greatly Benefited farmers Are Happy Over The I i Good Results They Derive y from a Dry Town LaRue County Herald A few weeks ago there appeared in the Springfield Sun the prettiest first page we lcav ever seen in a Kentucky paper It was the neatly arranged display of the state ments of the Hodgenyille business men with reference to the effect of local option at this place Not only were the testimonials well displayed but they told in words that carried weight with them that locaioption has not only been no injury to the business interests of Hodgenville but that it has been a great help to the business interests of the town and county some of the state ments being very strong and very spe cHic hi this respect These testimonials dealt chiefly with the business interests and they came from the business men of the town alone They could not have been strong erand they could not have come from a better source but had the farmers of the county been interviewed they would have made statements just as strong and would have pronounced even stronger argument in favor of the adoption of local option in any county Had the farmers been asked for their opinion they would have told that many men in their respective communities had been benefited by the change That they would name families whose happiness had been reestablished since the saloon went out That many good worthy men who formerly went to town and spent their savings at the sa loon and got fined and put In jail or came home to their families drunk could now come to Hodgenville and x t ANTEDj r all Kinds of Feed Stuffa 1 t I AM CONSTANTLY Y IN THE MARKET FOR OATS HAY CORN AND ALLY FEED STUFF WILL PAY THE HIGH EST PRICES PAY FOR AND 1 t tIfttll Itl 11t ftl 4ttr- ansact their business and come to their homes sober and with a bundle of goods for their little children That now they came to town only when necessary and they were saving their money put ting m their time on their farms mak ing better farmers more useful citizens and men who add to the desirability of their communities They will testify that local option has added to the busi ness opportunities of the town and county and it Has revolutionized the moral status of the county that it has decreased the drunkenness ninety per cent that it has given the young men of the county a chance to be men worthy ofthe name and last but not least they will state in the strongest terms that many sections of the county have so improved that they are far more desirable for homes and that this change has enhanced the value of farm roperty in some localities considerably This last statement may seem a little overdrawn but it is not Qne farmer told The Herald recently that before local option was put in force in Hodgen ville it was actually unsafe for lads to beon thq roadway from Hodgenville on Saturday nights and that it was not night Young men would come to town get a lot of whisky under their belts Since local option has been in operation none of these troubles exist The road way is as quiet Oti Saturday night as on Sunday The yi ung men who came to the Hodgenville loons do not come to town now except on busiucss and when they go home t ley are sober It was never their intcn ion to go home drunk but when they fame here the tempta tion was too strong the first drink led to the second the second to the third and the third to intoxication and loss of the sense of propriety Without the temptation they can come here and their

Good Price for Their Wool Mr H E Swain t writing in Upto Date Farming says The members of Smithfield Local Union 1568 the first organized in the White Burley district pooled 5000 pounds of wool Then we called a meet ing and invited all on the outside to put their wool in This brought our pooljfcup to 7000 pounds All came in but three farmers and two of those had burry wool and stayed out on that accountwhile the third said he would wait and if he found we got a better price he would come in I replied Not on your life you are either in or out But he hung around after learning our price and managed to sell his wool to our buyer i Here is our plan After much discussion we decided as we knew little about grading wool we would not al low it tobe graded but offer it in bulk as ungraded wool We knew we were small to take such a stand but we knew also ifwe sold to the highest bidder subject to grading we could be beaten out of all our gains and more in the So we nil agreed to make our wool clear of burs and tags and to give buyers the privilege of thorough in spection We made our prices 30 to 35 cents for clean wool burry 27 cents black wool we had three fleeces 8 cents off dead woo half price C P Woods C B Wilson and W I Hiatt were our committee with HS Swain secretary Wo arranged to meet buyers at Shel byville the first Monday in May and to them we submitted our proposition Some laughed at us others said when we got ready to sell they would bid etc Then the buyers themselves held a caucus This was something new to them and they couldnt understand it They thought to stay us out but we were aa good stayers as they were About 4 oclock in the evening they came around and asked if we were ready to receive bids on the wool yourbidewilli consider them reserving the right to reject any or all bids cc ono we wont do that they said If you sell this wool you must sell iti Split tBin t1fEasyand give coal advice Advice is cheap but coal costs money Why not then bW +better If

Demonstrations by Depart ment of Agriculture and Various States Landscape Improvements- and Beautifications Among the many novel features at the Jamestown Exposition is the gar den work by school children One hundred boys from the public schools of Norfolk Newport News and Hampton near the Exposition grounds were selected by their teachers to carry out the plans for a school garden at the Exposition Special trolley cars conveyed these young gardeners and their 1I OC 00 THE 1000 YEAR OL teachers to the grounds April 16 1906 and under direction of Warren H Manning landscape designer of the Exposition every boy was assigned to a small plot of ground in the garden and was given seeds to plant and instructions how tp plant them In these gardens are pow growing beans peas parsnips carrots marshmallow parsley and other vegetables They are attended by their little gardeners and are kept clean and free from weeds most of the boys taking a special pride In their gardens This is but a preliminary training for he schoolchildren in gardening a trial heat as It were for the race next years The actual work is to be taken up at the Jamestown Exposition next spring PRIZES FOR BEST GARDENS Those who have made a success of their gardens this season will be given preference next year and will have their same gardens The Exposition Company Will give prizes or medals for rtho best cultivated garden on the Exposition grounds and the young gardeners will be given some valu able lessons fn agriculturb The U S Department of Agriculture and some of the state departments will have ex- perImental stations and gardens at the Exposition as object lessons to the young as well as older gardeners The young minds amonglthe visitors which have a bent toward agricultural pursuits will have an opportunity to learn much of value in the way of till ing the soil They will learn when to plant what to plant and how to plant to get the best results They will also be given an opportunity to study soils and their treatment and how to enrich and Improve them Tree plant ing and transplanting will constitute another phase of Uncle Sams object lessons as are done at other govern ment experimental stations At the St Louis Exposition Uncle Sams gar dens and the childrens gardens proved exceedingly interesting as well as in structive to the farmers who were Wise enough to appreciate the benefits to be derived from them At the Jamestown Exposition it Is expected the Agricultural Department wjll broaden its scope of Instructions In many ways and surpass Its efforts at St Louis WILD WOODS BECOME PARK The landscape gardening which has transformed a wild woods into one of the most beautiful scenic parks will also serve as an object lesson to farm ers and all who have grounds to beau tify with flowers shrubs and trees More than a million plants and trees are growing on the Exposition grounds many of which have been transplanted others are native to the ng the trees transplanted were several hundred old trees some comprising an apple orchard whose trees were removed and planted around the thirtyacre drill plain on the grounds These and the pines cedars dogwoods and ULUur trees have not suffered by being transplanted manymilesed on the Exposition grounds art thrifty They have all been handled under the guidance of landscape engin eers The work has been done

given to his doings incident to the Jamestown Exposition The romantic days of Pocahontasj and Captain John Smith are ecalled by the old Indian and frontiersmens relics which have beet dug up In preparing the ground fir the Exposition The site selected for the celebration of the three hundredth ar versary of the first permanent English settlement in America was once an Indian village occupied by the Powhatans the most powerful tribe of the early American Indians who roamed over the country east of the Ohio River several centuries ago Near the State Exhibits Building stands a majestic live oak tree the Powhatan Oak estimated to be nearly 1000 years old which was a favorite camping ground of the In dians before America was discovered by the Palefaces Here were held councils of war when the only weap ons in use were stone hatchets stone war clubs spears with stone points and bows and arrows The arrow heads used were made of flint chipped down to a cutting edge almost as sharp as a knife every arrow head representing many hours of hard and patient toil Scores of these flint arrow heads are being found on the Ex position ground In excavating for streets and7 buildings Some of them are broken perhaps by striking some foe of the Indians In battle or some wild animal In those days the woods about Hampton Roads Were alive with deer bear rind other animals At Se wells Point where these relies are found were fought bloody battles between the early English settlers and the Indians and according to old In dlan traditions this was also the batttle ground on which warring IJn diau tribes desperately contended for the right of domain long before the occurrence of the historic event which the Jamestown Exposition commemorates The valuable fisheries of what are now called Hampton Roads und Chesapeake Bay tie beautiful hunt lug grounds along the water courses and the many attractions peculiar to this locality made this particular point of land very desirable and for its possessions Indian tribes warred AVjth one another Now after cen furies have gone by and the old In dian nations that once controlled this region have passed away their un dent battle fields have been trans formed intoa magnificent internation al exposition ground just outside the corporate limits of the city of Norfolk Virginia Wual Industrial Training Resolutions were recently adopted at the closing sessions of the Ameri can Institute of Instruction at New Haven favoring the installing of Industrial departments in every efficient school system The institute also placed itself on record as

the boys take hold of the work Out of 70 boys we enrolled in the agricultural course andlI think most of the firstyear boys will take It up when they get to it in the course It is proving popular In

the Middle West Agricul tural practice in that region differs ma terially from that of the more humid regions on the one hand and from that of the irrigated districts on the other The teacher of agriculture is thoroughly familiar with the agricul ture of the region and has but recently graduated from an agricultural col lege which is devoting much study to thp problems of the hundredth meridian belt The agriculture of this belt Is extensive Here one man works as much land as four or five men in the East he cultivates three rows of corn at one crossing of the field and does other things on an equally extensive scale Improved farm machinery makes this method of farming possible itrs therefore of the greatest importance that much attention to farm machinery be given in the agricultural course It the Norton County High School The cereals corn and wheat are the leading field crops hence the importance of grainjudging contests and other school work relating to these great staples The county superintendent of schools has expressed the hope that the school may also do much work that will be of immediate practical benefit to the agriculture of the country such as testing seeds for viability or germin ating power and milk and cream frt butter fat treating oats and whe tt for smut and potatoes for scab spray ing trees and garden crops for insect pests and diseases and

southward In battle array and Sir Nigel having re cruited his ranks the two hun dred members of the original White Company from the woods near Mont pezard joined the army and recelvQd the honorable commission from the Prince to push ahead into Spain and discover the location and strength of the Spanish and French army under King Henry otTranstamare The little band wound through the passes of Navarre and Into the rugged laml of Spain Sir Nigel had with him Sir William Felton Sir Oliver Buttesthorn stout old Six Simon Burley the Scotch knight errant the Earl of Angus and Sir Rich arl Causton all accounted among the bravest knights In the army together with veteran men atarms and thre hundred and twenty archers Spies had been sent out In the morning and returned after nightfall to say that the King of Spain was encamped some fourteen miles off in the direction of Burgos having wlth him twenty thou sand horse and fortyfive thousand foot A drywood fire had been lit and round thlB the leaders crouched the glare beating upon their rugged faces while the hardy archers lounged and chatted amid the tethered horses while they munched their scanty provisions For my part said Sir Simon Bur ley I am of the opinion that we have already done that which we have come for For do we not now know whero the king is and how great a following he hath which was the end of our Jour ney True answered Sir William Felton but I have come on this venture be cause It Is a long time since I have broken a spear in war and certes I shall not go back until I have run a course with some cavalier of Spain auwill pot leave you Sir WilliamIreturned Sir Simon Burley an old soldier and one who hath seen much of war I cannot but think that it is an thing for four hundred men to find themselves between an arm of sixty thousand on thf3one side and a broad rlver on the other Yet said Sir Richard Cjauston we cannot for the honor of England go- back without a blow struck Nor for the honor of Scotland either cried the Earl of Angus By Saint Paul you have spoken very well said Sir Nigel and I have always heard that there were very worthy gentlemen among the Scots and fine skirmishing to be had urton their border Bethink you Sir Simon that we have this news from the lips of common spies who can scarce tell us as much of the enemy and of his forces as the prince would wish to hear All night they led their horses stumbling and groping through wild defiles and rugged alleys following the guidance of a frightened peasant who was strapped by the wrist to Black SI moni stirrupleather With the early dawn they found themselves In a dark ravine with others sloping away from It on either side and the bare brown crags rising in long bleak terraces all round them If It please you fair lord said Black Simon this man hath misled us and since there is no tree upon which we may hang hlmIt might be well to hurl him over yonder cliff The peasant reading the soldiers 0meaning In his fierce eyes and harsh accents dropped upon his knees scream lag loudly for mercy How comes it dogr asker Sir Will lam Felton In Spanish Where is this camp to which you swore you would lead us I By the sweetVirgln By the blessed Mother of God cried the trembling peasant I swear to you that In the darkness I have myself lost the pa- thIAt the Instant there rose the scream of a hundred bugles with the deep rolling of drums and the clashing yofcymbals all sounding together in one deafening uproar Knights and arch ers sprang to arms convinced th some great host was upon them but the guide dropped upon his knees and jnerclesWehe cried This is their morning call As he spoke he scrambled down One of the narrow ravines and climbing over a low ridge at the further end he led them into a short valley with a l stream purling down toe centre of It and a very thick growth of elder and box upon either side Pushing their way through the dense brushwood they looked upon a scene which made their hearts beat harder and their breath tome faster In front of them lay a broad plain watered by two winding streams and covered with grass stretching away to where in the furthest distance the towers of Burgos bristled up against the light blue morning sky over all this vast meadow there lay a great city of tentSr thousands upon thousands of them out In streets and squares like a wellordered town HIgh silken pavilions orJcolored mnrqueesj shoot lug up from among the crowd of mean er dwellings marked where the great lords and barons of Leon and Castile displayed their standards while over the white roofs as far as eye could reach the waving of ancients pavons penslls and banderoles with hash of gold and glow lot colors proclaimed that tIM the chivalry of Iberia were mustered in the plain beneath them Far off in the centre of the camp a Huge palace of red and white silk with the royal arms of Castile waving v from the summit announced that the gallant Henry lay there In the midst of his warriors As the English adventurers peeping o4t from behind their brushwood screen looked down upon this wondrous sight they could see that the vast army in front of them was already afoot Tho first pink light of the rising sun glut tered upon the steel caps and brnAst plates of dense massos of slingers and orossbowmen who drilled and marched tn the space which had been left for their exercise A thousand columns Of smoke reeked tip Into the pure morn jiff air where the faggots were piled and thf cainpkettles already simmering In the open plnln clouds of light horse galloped and swooped with swaying bodies and wavhg Jave lins after the fashion which tho Span ish had adopted from their Moorish en emies AU along by the sedgy banks of the risers long lines of pages led their llu ers chargers down to water wfcll thei knights themselves lounged jrayiydfressed groups about the doors of their toAVllloha or rode out with ther falcon upon their wrists and twioti rlJ s tNCoFyrihteatheir greyhounds behind them In quest of quail or hn rctIThe lenders sat amongst the box Wood and took counsel together ns to betlowthe shouting the neighing of horses nnd all the uproar of a great camp What boots Vjt to wait said Sir William Felton Let us ride down upon their camp before they discover us pAndearl for they do not know that there is any enemy within thirty long leagues of them For my partysald Sir Simon Burtley I is madness you cannot hope to routkhls great ar my and where are you to go and what are you to do when they have turned upon you pianbysmall deed upon them and yet by the help of God may be able to draw off again which as Sir Simon Burley hath said would be scarCe possible In any other way How then Sir Nigel asked sev eral voices We shall lie here all day for amid this brushwoodlt is ill for them to see us Then When evening comes we shall sally out upon them and see if we may not gain some Honorable advancement from them We shall have nightfallhto cover us when we draw we may make Our way back through the mountains I would station a score of archers here in the pass withtall our pennons Jutting forth from rocks nnd as many nakirs

ustThe words were scarce oUt of his mouth when there came a flatter of loose stones the sharp clink hoofs anda darkfaced cavalierhmounted upon a white horse through the bushes and rode swiftly down the vairey tram the end which was farthest from the Spanish camp Lightly armed with his vizor open and a hawk perched upon his left Wrist he looked about him with the careleos air of a man who is bent wholly upon asibllityhis eyes lit upon the fierce faces which glared out at him from the brushwood With a cry of terror he thrust his spurs into his horses sides and dash ed for the narrow opening of the gorge For a moment it seemed as thought he would have reached it for he had trampled over or dashed aside the arr chers who threw themselves Im his way but Honjle John seized him by the foot in his grasp of iron and dragged him from the saddle whileatwo others caught the frightened Ho ho roared the great archer How many cows wilt by my mother if I set thee free Hush that bulls bellowing cried Sir Nigel impatiently Bring the man here By St Paul 1t is riot the first time that we have met for if I mis take not It is Don Diego Alvarez who was qnce at the princes court It is Indeed I safd the Spanish knight I trust that I am now toe prisoner of some honorable knight or gentleman You are the prisoner of the man who took you Sir Diego answered Sir Ni gel And I may tell you thiit better men than either you or I have found themselves before now prisoners in the hands of the archers of England What ransom then does he de mand asked the Spaniard Big John scratched his red head and grinned in high delight wpen the ques tion was propounded to him Tell him said he that I shall have ten cows and a bull too if it be but a little one Also a dress of blue sendall for mother and a red one for Joan with five acres of pastureland two scythes and a fine new grIndstote Likewise a small house wlthstallsforthe cows and thirtysix gallons of boer for the thirsty weather Tut tUt1 said Sir

off his armor iml had dressed himself from head to foot In the harness of the captured Spaniard Sir William said he It rSmyopin ion to attempt a small deed and I ask you therefore that you will leal

rugged rock wet anti shining with a green tuft here rtnd there thrusting out from It but little sign of ridge or foothold Far below the jagged points of the boulders bristled up tlnrlt and menacing Norbury tugged thrleo with nil his strength upon the cord and then lowered himself over tho edge while a hundred anxious faces peered over tit him ns he slowly clambered downwards to tho end of tho rope Twice he utrctched out his foot and twice he failed to reach tho point at which ho aimed but oven ns he swung himself for n third effort n stone from a sling buzzed like a wasp from amid the rocks nnd struck him full upon the side of his head ills trrnup relaxed his feet slipped and In an Instant be was a crushed nnd mangled corpse upon the sharp ridges beneath him If I have no better fortune said Al leyne leading Sir Nigel aside I pray you my dear lord that you will give my humble service to the Lady Maudo and nay to her that I was ever her true servant nnd most unworthy cavalier The old knight said no word but ho put a hand on either shoulder and kissed his squire with the tears shiqtug In his eyes Alleyne sprang to the rope and sliding swiftly down soon found himself at Its extremity From above It seemed ns though rope and cliff were wellnigh touch Ing but now When swinging a hundred feet down the squire found that he could scarce reach the face of tho rock with his foot and that It was as smooth as glass with no restingplace where a mouse could stand Some three feet lower however his eye lit upon a long Jagged crack which slanted downwards and this he must reach If he would save not only his own poor life but that of the eightscore men above him Yet It were madness to spring for thnt narrow slit with nought but the wet smooth rock to cling to Ho swung for a moment full of thought and even ns he hung there another of the hellish stones sang through his curls and struck n clip from the face of the cliff Up he clambered a few feet drew up the loose cud after him cnshiilK his belt held on with knee and with elbow while he spliced the long tough leathern belt to the end of the cord then lowering himself as far as he could go ho swung backwards and forwards til his hand reached the crack tbrn he left the rope nnd clung to the face of the cliff Another stone struck him on the side nnd he heard a sound like n breaking stick with a keen stabbing pain which shot through his chest Yet It was no time now to think of pain or ache There was his lord and his eightscore comrades nnd they mtfst be plucked from the Jaws of death On he clambered with hid hand shuffling down tho long sloping crack sometimes bearing all his weight upon his arms at others finding some small shelf or tuft on which to rest his foot Would he never pass over thnt fifty feet tie dared not look down and could but grope slowly onwards his face to the cliff his fingers clutching his feet scraping zulU feeling lor a support Every vein and crack nnd mottling of that face of rock remained forever stamped upon hla memory At last however his foot came upon a broad restingplace and he ventured to cast a glance downwards Thank God he had reached the highest of those fatal pinnacles upon which his comrade had fallen Quickly now he sprank from rock to rock until his foot were on the ground nnd ho had his hand stretched out for the horses rein when a slingstone struck him on the head and he dropped senseless upon the ground An evil blow It was for Alleyne but a worse ont still for him who struck It The Spanish slinger seeing the youth lie slain and Judging from his dress that he was no common than rushed forward to plunder him knowing well that the bow men above him had expended their last shaft He was still three paces however from his victims side when John upon the cliff above plucked up n huge boulder and poising It for an Instant dropped It with fatal aim upon tho slinger beneath him It stuck upon his shoulder and hurled him crushing ands screaming to the ground while Alleyne recalled to his senses by these shrill cries In his very ear staggered on to his feet nnd gazed wildly about him His eyes fell upon the horses grazing upon tho scanty pasture and In an Instant nil had come back to himhis mission his comrades the need for haste Ho was dlzzy sick faint but he must not die and he must not tarry r for his life meant ninny lives that day la an Instant he was In his saddle anti sprung down the valley Loud rang tim swift chargers hoofs over rock and reef while the fire flew from the stroke of Iron anti the loose stones showered up behind him But his head was whirling round- the blood was gushing from his brow his temple his mouth Ever keener mid sharper was the deadly pain which shot like arrow through his side lie felt that his eye Was glazing his senses slipping from him his grasp upon the reins relaxing Then with one mighty effort he called tip all hla strength for a single minute Stooping down ho loosened the stirrupstraps bound hits knees tightly to his saddle flaps twisted his hands In the bridle nnd then putting the gallant- horses bend for the mountain path he dashed tho spurs In and fell forward faint ing with his facet burled In the conrse black inane LIttle could be ever remember of thnt Wild ride Half conscious but over with the one thought beating In his mind he goaded the horse onwards rushing swift ly down steep ravines over huge boulders- along Ute edges of black abysses Dim memories he had of beetling cliffs of n group Of huts with wondering faces at the doors of foaming clattering water and of a bristle of mountain benches Once ere he had ridden far he heard behind him three deep sullen shouts which told him that his comrades had set their faces to the foe once more Then nil was blank until he woke to find kindly blue English eyes peering down Upon him arid to near the blessed sound of his countrys speech They were but n foraging liartyit liutir dred archers and as many men ntnrms but their leader was Sir Hugh Cnlverloy and he was not a man to little Idle when good blows were to be had not three leagues from him A scout Wits sent fly lug with a message to the entail and Sir Hugh with his twp hundred men thundered ort to the rescue With them went Alleyne still bound to his saddle eittl dripping with blood and swooning nnd recovering and swooning once again On they rode and on until at last topping a ridge they looked down upon the fate valley Alas and alas for the sIght fibat met their eyes There beneath them was the blood athed hill and from the highest pinnacle here flaunted the yellow and white banner With the Itooi and the towers of the r4 hoiiHo of Castile Up the long slope riislied ranks anti ranks or men exultant shouting with waving pennons and brandished arms Over the whole summit were dense throbgs of knights with no eneny that could be seen to face them save only that one corner of thin plateau an eddy nod fcwirl amid the crowded niass sihed to show that all rpstatnhce was not jjot nt mi Olid At flit sight a loop groan of rage nnd of dospjilr wont up from tliebhffiqti rescuers and spurring on their horses they clattered down the long and winding

Into barrels for hauling to the town orI fruitcrossmay be exchanged for a bolt of muslin orcalicoorsometlilngclse needed In the house But this is not very profitable The progressive farmer has found that It pays to give strict attention to the sorting and packing of his crop in or der that it may bring for him a mach larger amount of money Just when to pick is one of the secrets of the trade which all orchard Ista do not appreciate The time ofI picking red apples is commonly guaged by their color and that of yellow apples by the color of the seeds The latter is the only reliable test of ripeness for an apple picked just as the seeds have turned a light brown and before they become dark around the edges will be found to have not only full flavor but the best keeping qual ity But red apples are often left for some time after the seeds indicate ma turity to allow them to put on more color which they do rapidly under the r influence of the bright days and frosty nights of autumn and indeed this is the only way of obtaining color on fruit in the shady portions of the tree Growers should bear in mind however that to defer picking after the seeds indicate ripeness invites watercore and shortens the life of the fruit in stor age dften to a serious extent with the midwinter varltles TOO DATE PICKING Much of the complaint recently lodged against the Jonathan because of rotting at the core according to a Jreport of the Idaho Experiment Sta believed to be attributable to late picking Unless this trouble is cor rected the sale of this valuable var- Iety Is sure to be hurt The purchaser is completely deceived by the perfect appearance of the fruit not a sign of decay being visible until it is cut open when the flesh for some distance about the core is discovered to be brown

fit by the employment of the same bOQYj of trained pickers successively at the various orchards Even the isolated growers should endeavor to have a group of expert pickers and employ the same ones as faY as possible year after year This is the way to buildup a reputation that has a great cash value PACKING IN BARRELS whilef the simplest method of pack Ing apples is the old barrel of the east in which the bottom and top are faced the apples in the middle being simply poured in this is a slovenly not to say deceitful method for it requires no grading expert to sort out the best ones for facing The Western box method on the other hand is more desirable especially in cases where one wishes to cater to the fancy trade One of the pretty points about the box package is that the exact number of apples contained therein is always known and if stamped on the box as it should be gives information much ap preciated by the buyer Of course this only applies where the packer adopts one particular method of placing the apples In the box A prominent orchardist made the statement that it costs money to step on a ladder in an orchard This or- chardI owner finds that there is a waste of time In

picks has his own opinion as to the best style of receptacle in which to place the freshly picked fruits Buckets baskets and bags have their devotees and some even go so far as to provide the pickers with coal scuttles The latter however strongly suggest pouring and such rough treatinent is riot to be though of with apples any more so than with eggs Where bigs are used as is com monly the case they should be lined with burlap though this should not cause any relaxation of Care in plac ing fruit In them Bags are open to the objection that the fruit in them is easily bruised where the bag brushes against a limb or ladder The usual form of backing does not admit of removing the fruit except pour Ing and this isobj6dtionable The bot fomless sack overcomes this difficulty as it allows the fruit to roll from the bottom when the chain is released Such treatment might do with oranges but with apples never The average picker could never withstand the temp tation to let them shoot from the

essential- as good fruit may be gathered from a rCof story of a potato grower In Colorado a few years ago when the crop of potatoes in the east was Immense Colorado had as usual raised many thousands of sacks but found the price low that It scarcely covered the freight charges In the lJcy The Man of the Hour appeared ln the person of a grower who washed his potatoes carefully put them up In neat ltl pound sacks with attractive labels and sont them on to Chicago A very fancy price was asked but the potatoes went off with a rush and netted the grower the highest returns he had oVer received

Home Tree Planting Thousands of school houses entirely lack tbe simple surroundings mat would insure beauty and contentment We mean by this not a paucity in architectural design but in the simple mat ter of teautification through planting which in many cuse8rcan be attained the interest of the scholars themselves Some city schools have no space for planting at all although some contain a good arrangement of flower beds and shade trees In the towns and villages also it is possible to point out many examples showing great care and attention It is in the country however that the improved school ground Is rarely found The idea school ground which should really be as much a part of pupilsations of nature serves two distinct purposes First it becomes a technical labora tory where the intelligent teacher can point out the marvelous chemical chan ges which with each appearance plantUfefuller growth of summer with its blossoms and fruit and the matured wood growth when the leaves drop in the falla cycle In the plants history andSecond tho influence that such study has upon the growing mind With a reasonable amount of this sort of education coupled with the three Rs tho child will never develop the tendency to rip to pieces the shrubbery of his own home or out and trample un der foot the young plants in thegarden Furthermore he will likely take his school garden for his ideal and use his influence to make the home yard Its equal in appearance if not its superior The object too of school yard plant ing is strictly utilitarian School house some of them splendid brick structures as well as sod house build lugs can be found which are absolutely devoid of tree or shrub planting Both the winter winds and the summer heat Operate upon them with unchecked violence Why not plant trees and inaugurate the assistance of the pupils in so doing which will not only act as wind breaks but afford shade In connection with this subject the Bureau of Forestry of the Department of Agriculture has Issued a Farmers Bulletin No 134 on Tree for Rural School Gardens This can be obtained without cost by writing either Gifford Pinchot Forester US Department of Agriculture

In ad vocating a deliberate system of train Ing nature study by means of school gardens he said Most important of all Is the beginning of a national movement for the making of home crofts or small Independent homes With perhaps an acre to enable mien family to find out the true values of rural life It would bo un absurd er ror to suppose that such homes are now lacking There are multitudes through out the land What Is new Is that these homes are coming at last to their own insignificantwhich one who has risen to distinction is expected to be a little ashamed they are being sought but as typical of the best In home life and as models to be reproduced in essentials with some adaptations to the new needs of the times FLOWERS AND BIRDS To grow up Mr Chandler said with the flowers and shrubs and trees and to learn to care for the birds squir re s rabbits and domestic animals is a raining whose influence on character can never be overestimated An acre of ground is enough for Natures

made It more beautiful than can man It Is not necessary that It should be transformed Into carpet beds of flowers and trimly kept lawns If It nfrds sunlight and a green relief of grass and trees for the eye it becomes a clvlllzer and nn equalizer for the poor as well as the wealthy a resting place where a man may forget forth time some of his struggles and lit anxieties In a contemplation of what
