Their license expired in November IranIchiseSit is now they have no right whatever to operate in this city The companys attorney Join M Stevenson was before the council asking that the sale of this

number of people before the council complaining Jof their property being assessed above its value and reba-te on what they have paid and x others complaining of paying taxes on property that they have disposed of some time ago These complaints are getting to he common occurrences mmmmmmmmm Ii i t l J A 1ir rr d f k vj IN LR fAND Aj i T T r Has Council y at the council meetings and are in ceasing all the time City Assesses Salary An ordinance was passed fixing the salary or the City Assessor at 500 per year 20000 to be paid at the close of his work and the other three hundred is to be held until after his tax books have been corrected the Board of Supervisors he wiI also be required to make a sworn affidavit that he has seen the owner ofevery pieec of property in the city and has secured tile signature of the owner as to the value of the proper ty and that he himself has investi gated the value of the property The three hundred dollars will be held until after a settlement has been effected by a committee that the Council will appoint to audit the books For each violation ofany iiile in the ordinance governing the assessment of property a penalty will he imposed on the Assessor and will be paid out of the three hundred dol lars that will be held by the city This it is thought will do away with the trouble that the Council is now haying with the tax payers Wants Check Back The Weil Roth Company of Cin cinnati that purchased the 40000 worth of sewer bonds from the city some time ago made another appli a tion for their certified check of 500 that they put up as a forfeit that they would take the bonds They claim that the bonds are not legal and that if they take them they cannot dispose of them Two months ago Judge Jouett was appointed to take the matter up with them and inves tigate the legality of the bonds anti Tirt vrirnvrte iaflinxr 1icrol f1nd there is n6 god reason why ti1not accept them Company May Sue No action was taken on the matter and the probable result of it will be that the company will sue for their check and then the legality of the bonds will be tested in the courts here Ina letter addressed to S B Tracy City Clerk they give as their reasons for the bonds being il legal first that the election notices were defective in not fixing the pool ing places at which the election was to have been held and another was that thestatutes require the election election notices to be published in two papers two weeks prior to the election They claim the notice was published in one paper only twelve davs and in another eleven days prior to the election The third rea son was that the Constitution of Ken tucky absolutely limits the tax rate of this city to 75 cents on each 100 of the valuation and that the records show that they are now levying 110 and this say makes it clear that sufficient taxing power does not ex ist to carry the bonds Continued on Page Four YYYIyY IIIIIYIIY 1111 jt rrri rr rrrpr Iy w fI t v i f ti i i l JW

The ballots ot men long residents of other cities V the ballots of temporary absentees r the ballots of the insane and even of the dead were cast in the primary election of last August in Chicago Repeaters voted in platoons with the connivance of willingly unseeing judges and clerks of election and fraud rampant to an extent hitherto unknown in a city never famousfor the purity of its political atmos phere rendered the resultant Part nominations morally worthless These and other startling allega tions were made in the report of the P special grand jury which after sev eral weeks of delving into charges growing out of Chicagos first primaries and returning 81 indictments against two score or more of politl clans and others adjourned The in vestigation owing to physical limjta tions merely scratched the surface of the situation according to the rep port and doubt is expressed that there has been an honest city or gen eral election in Chicago in years The findings of the inquisitorial body characterize the primary elec tion as a disgrace to the ctty Voting machines are urgently advised as a step in a remedial direction and a wider application of civil service It is stated that while the jury can not affirm that no frauds were perpe trated by civil service employes it is significant that the inquisitors found none such On the other hand the report remarks the fact that although the police were in the vicinity of every polling booth the investigators received no aid from them in seeking to fasten responsibility for the condi tions which prevailed t z

his salary of 50000 a year Of those few who may have given the matter a thought a large majority do not know whether he receives his salary monthly quarterly or semiannually As a matter of fact the salary due the president is taken to the White House by a trusted messenger from the mce of the treasurer of the UnIted States on the last day of each month and handed over to the official whose business it is to look after It The president receives his salary in the shape of a check the 50000 being divided into eight checks of 416667 each and four checks of 416666 each Thus one month out of

advantages of a continuous door to the silo making it possible to climb a ladder on the inside of the chute and step directly on tothe silage without even stooping would be appre ciated by all and especially by the man past middle age Our illustration shows a general plan of a proposed silo which will have a door with nothing extending across it The doors could be of any height perhaps simply tongued and grooved plank sawed as long as width of door The chute is built with the rest of the silo of the same masonry construction and the re enforcing steel passes around the chute The portion of the wall at BI in the figure is only supported at A and C However for concrete brick or tile a light steel rod may be laid In the wall approximately as shown which makes a reenforced beam of I=1iN A Real Continuous Drop Door for the Silo that portion of the wall that if prop erly built will withstand the silage pressureIf chute were roofed over the doors could all be left out and no warm air escape Windows should be provided at frequent heights along the chute thus providing plenty of light within the silo The silage chute is quite essential and should be as permanent as the rest of the silo This being the case the extra expense of a door of this type is entirely justified Iowa Bulletin INFLUENCE OF THE SIRE One of the Most Important Factors in Successful Dairying A writer Illustrates this principle very well this way If the bull be of inferior breeding it affects all the calves of his get more or less in the entire herd But if there is a single cow that Is in ferior the loss extends no farther than her own calf This is true declares Hoards Dairyman and it emphasizes the truth of the old maxim The bull is half of the herd for good or bad When farm ers get this idea into their minds full size there will be less fooling with inferior bulls or sires of any kind In reality it is this low cheap esti mate of the value of good breeding in the bull that is at the bottom of all the poor unprofitable cows that we see Of course if a man has a poor estimate of the value of the sire he is apt to set a poor estimate on what he should do in other things It is true as Hiram Smith said A good bull is a great educator There is another mistaken idea which prevails very largely with farm ers who have not looked into this ques tion of breeding as they ought They think that if they have a good cow she will bring a good heifer no matter how she is bred It Is that over confidence in the mother that makes them so indifferent to good qualities in the sire We may have the best soil in the world but if we use poor seed we harvest disappointment Then again If the mother is a grade and of course of mixed blood there is just as good a chance that she will breed from the inferior elements in her nature as from the superior un less she is always coupled with a su perior male It is a mistake to suppose that a good cow of inferior breeding is there by qualified to drop good calves We must look deeper than her performing power at the pail for her ability to give us profitable heifers Her veins must be heavily stored with the blood of high performing ancestors and she must be bred if possible to a sire of still richer inheritance This puts us on a constantly ascending grade and then we have reverses enough HOW ONE FARMER MANAGES Way in Which He Feeds His Calves to Avoid Scours I have had good success in raising calves from skim and sour milk writes an Indiana correspondent in Farm and Home I take them from the cqw when one to three days old giving first warm milk and after ten days begin to add skim milk I use a tablespoonful of oil meal and warm the milk before each feed ing I gradually increase the meal until I give them a large handful at a feed When four or five weeks old I begin to feed sour milk from which cream has been taken still continuing the calf meal When he drinks the sour milk readily I begin to add a handful of wheat shorts or middlings and later a little corn meal With this method of feeding I have had no trouble from scours Once with a bad case I tried paregoric with doses of one ounce every three hours and although it was a very bad case I had no more trouble the calf being completely cured T 4 r vj JW DWARF APPLES They Will Be Grown on Account of- Their Convenience G T Powellof Columbia county N Y has been conducting some interesting experiments on the value of dwarf apple trees In business orchards It is the Idea of Mr Powell that trees of a4 low habit of growth will be required more and more because of the need of convenience for spraying and harvest ing The scale insects make it almost impossible to thoroughly treat large trees and the cost of labor makes a saving at harvesting time of great Importance Two styles of dwarf trees are under trial The so called Paradise Is very dwarf and is short lived The Doucin stock is half dwarf making trees sixteen to eighteen feet high and prom ises good results in commercial or charding The trees are planted two or three inches below the union of stock and top In Mr Powells or chard the trees of Paradise stock are set as fillers between those of the lar ger dwarf kind The rows in the or chard are twenty feet apart and the trees ten in a row The wide spaces between the rows allow plenty of room for cultivation by horsepower while the trees in the rows will be thinned out as soon as they become crowded The dwarf trees give fruit in a few years from planting and the amount gradually increases The small dwarf kind lasts six to eight years and the semidwarfs for about twenty years For dwarf trees the Spltzenberg Jona than and McIntosh are found success ful They produce fruit of very fine appearance and quality suitable for packing in boxes for the choicest trade For the half dwarfs the Northern Spy Roxbury Ilusset Twenty Ounce Astra khan Baldwin and Greening are satis factory The dwarf trees must receive good culture with plenty of plant food and careful cultivation The soil is plowed and harrowed in the spring and is kept in a cover crop of clover during the summer Scale and other insects are easily treated In the dwarf orchards The idea appears so promising to Mr Powell that he is pruning his larger trees on the dwarf plan cutting back the tops of the standard trees in order to cause them to spread out and to re move the high parts of the tree which make so much difficulty In spraying old trees The Louise Bonne Pear A good midseason pear the Louise Bonne is one of the best known mar ket varieties and has always been pop ular in various localities because of its great productiveness and general good qualities The tree Is hardy every where that pears succeed and it does LOUISE BONNE rEAR well either on natural pear stock or on the quince It is a vigorous upright grower and very productive especially if grown in deep rich loam which is its favoritesoil The fruit is large and yellowish green in color with a slight tinge of brownish red The flesh is white fine grained and juicy with pleasant aro matic flavor It Is a good dessert pear and also suitable for market or distant shipment It ripens in

best be devised When the flowers are In bloom their effect may be noted and the change to be wrought by new plants may be accurately cal culated That is the time to get out notebook and catalogue figure out What your flower beds and shrubbery borders lack and decide what may best Dupply that lack If a pink flowering shrub is needed at a certain point make a note of it in your book better still stick up a little stake in the exact spot where the shrub would look best marking on the stake the specifications whether the plant should be tall or low growing the sea son of flowering etc Then when you order your shrubbery for fall planting your nurseryman can fill your specifi cations and when the plant comes you will know the exactplace to plant it In grouping your plants take pains to make them fit in with the neighboring architecture The texture of the foliage the color of the flowers sea son of bloom and the rapidity of growth should all be considered carefully Xo not plant shrubs so close together when they are young that when they attain a few years growth they will be crowded r i r ATTRACTS ALL OTHER ODORS Onion Can Be Used to Get Rid of Dis agreeable Smells Everyone knows that an onion has a distinct and unpleasant odor whether cooked or raw But everyone does not know that this odor of an onion will draw to it every other disagreeable odor and clear the house atmosphere in a day The onion can then be thrown away and with it goes the disagreeable smells that come about in a house that has been closed for the summer And this is also a good thing to know That it will absorb all the odor from fresh paint and turpentine If the house has been freshly painted and cleaned for the winters occu pancy the people moving into it will be miserable with the smells that come from walls and floors After the fresh country these odors will be unendurable One onion should be cut into small pieces and placed about the room in two or three saucers Allow an onion to each room

which is used in British homes Seville oranges are the best for this marmalade if one can get them The juice is pressed out and the rinds put into a preserving kettle with plenty of water to cover them This is cooked until soft adding more water as it boils away When very soft it is turned into a jelly bag and the juice squeezed out This is mixed with the uncooked juice and to every pint a pound and a half of sugar is allowed It is cooked 20 minutes The best way to test it is to drop a little on a cold plate If it curls up at the touch of a finger it is ready to take from the fire It should be put into glasses or small stone jars It should stand uncovered for a night and after this the jars may be covered with paraffin Bay State Crullers Break three eggs into a bowl add las

Nat poleon then sent for Luce de Lancival gave him the manuscript and directed him to finish the play This was done but the players refused to accept itWhen Napoleon returned to Paris from coronation

have demon strated ability to hold political posi tions and run affairs still regarded by many persons as suited only to men is Miss Dove who was lately elected mu nicipal councilor of High Wycombe England by the biggest majority in the history of that town Just think of conservative old England getting ahead of America by owning a lady mayor Our sisters of the Political league on this side of the water had better sit up and take notice Miss Dove has always been a pioneer in deed it has become a fixed habit with her She was one of the three women who were first privileged to attend university lectures with the undergraduates She was the first student to enter the new building at Girton the womans college of England also one of the first twelve students who attended the first womans college at Cambridge All women must applaud Miss Dove for the splendid efforts she has made in improving the standard IBFeof education for her sex In her girlhood when education for women was at a very low standard she spent three fifsyears age the country and all instruction ceased Her next school venture was residence at a boarding school and after that a period of home life devoted to teach ing her younger brother and sisters and making their clothes Suddenly came the first great step in her educa tional career when her father a cler gyman told her of Miss Emil Davies Intention of starting a womens college at Cambridge Miss Dove passed the entrance examination and was enrolled as a scholar After a successful uni versity career she went as science mis tress to Cheltenham and

the healthiest class of people said Miss Goodrich superintendent of the Training School For Nurses at Belle rue hospital New York city the other day By that 1 mean they are less subject to physical breakdown than any other class of people They have fewer aches and pains than other pee pIe and their general health is far above the average of those who are usually considered the healthiest farmers and workers who pursue out door work Even doctors whose very business is health are not as healthy Doctorscj preserve health but they almost invariably abuse their constitutions by overwork irregular hours and mental strain The reason why hospital nurses are the healthiest people is not so much because of the nature of their work as it is their regular hours for sleeping eating exercising and working They have the correct amount of sleep every twentyfour hours the most nourIsh- ing and wholesome food prepared in the best manner and of course they live under the best sanitary conditions

garments for girls it is al ways important to arrange for length ening the same FirstOne of the usual methods is to have a series of tucks at the hem This is somewhat of a trimming and later proves convenient by letting out the tucks one or more as is required SecondIf the dress or skirt is plain the hem may be let down and a facing put unde- rThirdIf No 2 does not give suffi cient length then instead of facing when letting out the hem add an ex tension hem that will give the necessary length being careful to match the design if there is any in the material A row of featherstitching may be

begun hostI softly but the voice grew higher and harsher as she went on Why I said bewildered again U1e house sneaked away from meor at least you left me alone in it How was that she asked grimly And I described graphically my ex t4 perience in the deserted building As I proceeded with my tale an amused look replaced the harsh lines of suspicion on Mother Bortons face Oh my Iud she cried with a chuckle Oh my mud how very green yen are my boy Oh ho ho ho And then she laughed an inward selfcon suming laugh that called up anything but the feeling of sympathetic mirth Im glad it amuses you I sai with injured dignity Oh my liver Dont you see it yet Dont you see that you climbed into the next house back and wen through on to the other street An she relapsed into her state of merrimentI enough as the trut flashed over me I had lost my sens at direction in the strange house an had been deceived by the resemblance of the ground plan of the two build ings But what about the plot I asked I got your note Its very interesting What about it What plot yowroteMother Borton bent forward and searched my face with her keen glance Oh she said at last the one I wrote you about Id forgotten it r This was disheartening How could I depend on one whose memory was thus capricious Yes said I gloomily I supposed you might know something about itIShow me the note she said sharply I fumbled through my pockets until hound It Mother Borton clutched it held it up to the candle and studied it for two or three minutes Where did you get it I described the circumstances in which it had come Into my possession and repeated the essentials of Cor sons story Mother Bortons sharp evil face was impassive during my re cital When it was done she mut tered Gimme a fool for luck Then she appeared to consider for a minute or moreWell said I inquiringly Well honey youre having a run of the cards she said at last Be- tweenr having the message trusted to a fool boy and having a cop for your friend an

Mother Borton they thought he carried papers and maybe they aint got over the idea yit Its jest as well youre here instid of having a little passear with Torn Ter rill and Darby Meeker and their pals Well saidI as cheerfully as I could under the depressing circum stances if they want to kill me I dont see how I can keep them from getting a chance sooner or later Mother Borton looked anxious at this and shook her head You must call on your men she said decidedly You must have guardsBy the way I said that reminds me The men havent been paid and theyre looking to me for money Whos looking to you for money Dicky Nahl and the others I sup poseDicky Nahl Why yes He asked me for itAnd you gave it to him she asked sharplyNoothat is I gave him ten dol lars and told him hed have to wait for the rest I havent got the money from the one thats doing the hiring yet so I couldnt pay him Mother Borton gave an evil grin and absorbed another inward laugh I reckon the moneyll come all right said Mother Borton recovering from her mirth Theres one more anxious than you to have em paid and if you aint found out youll have it right away Now for guards take Trentno pes hurt Take Brown and Porter and Barkhouse and Fitz hugh Theyre wideawake and dont talk much Take em two and two and never go without em night or day You stop here tonight and Ill git em for you tomorrow I declined the proffered hospitality with thanks and as a compromise agreed to call for my bodyguard in the early morning Rejoining Corson I explained Mother Bortons theory of the plot that had brought me thither Shes like to be right said the policeman She knows the gang Now if youll take my advice youll let the rats have your room for this night and come along up to some foine hotel The advice appeared good and fit teen minutes later Corson was drink ing my health at the Lick House bar andd S I sleptWhether due to his prayers or not bty S antthhe e eatindg Mother Borton ignored my entrance and perched on a high stool behind the bar and cashdrawer reminded me of the vulture guarding Its prey Bu- at t last she fluttered over to my tablo and took a seat opposite Your men are here she said shortly And then as I expressed my thanks she warmed up and gave me a description by which I should know each and led me to the room whereas she said they were corralled By the way I said halting outside the door theyll
