Kept in Good Condi Lion in Sections of Missouri There are three tools that are being used in Missouri in keeping the dirt roads in good condition the grader the drag and the harrow writes a cor respondent of theFarmers Voice The grader costing from 200 to 500 is used in rolling up the roads This is done or at least should be done in the spring of the year If the roads are graded in the fall they get terribly cut up by the travel after the rains in the late fall and sometimes become almost impassable To say the least they are miserably rough When graded in the spring the roads get bad enough in the winter and spring and it is only of late years that farmers have learned the use of the drag and harrow in putting them in good condition again The road drag js easily constructed by means of two timbers of split logs from eight to ten feet in length and about the size of heavy fence posts They may be fastened together with oak cross pieces or by round spokes extending from the holes in one piece to those in the other Good chains can be fastened to the pieces to which the double tree can be attached If the drag Is extra heavy two teams may bE used by hitching one at each ead When dragging the road one team should be kept a little ahead of tho other so as to pull the dirt toward the middle of the road It is a good idea to have a sharp cutting blade of steel on the underside of the front timber If this extends about half an inch below the edge of the timber and slants forward it will help wonder fully In cutting off the rough points in the road The drag though simple is a great Invention It Is a power for leveling the roads In winter just after a dry freeze or In the early spring when the roads begin to dry By running the drag over the road ruts and hore tracks will be easily filled If they contain water U will run out and away then the roads will soon be in good condition The common field harrow while not BO good as the drag is being used frequently for leveling roads Best re suIts are obtained by using the harrow when the roads are rough but dry It acts as a leveler but not as a grader by raking oft the clods and bumps pulverizing them and filling the de gressions The neighbors in a community with the use of the drag and harrow have no trouble keeping the roads about their farms in very good condition during most of the year Of course there are times in rainy seasons when the roads must be let alone REVERSIBLE SLED It Is Easy to Load and Easy from Which to Dump Load Here is a sled that will work either side up and from either end It is handy for hauling stones or other heavy material as it can be over SelfDumping Sled turned and the load left where desired If necessary it can be drawn from either end and will save a lot of extra lifting in unloading the material DO HAULING NOW Get Such Work Out of theWay Before Ground Gets in Bad Shape With the old plan of managing the farm there was always much hauling to do in the winter and in all kinds of weather I have learned one thing about hauling says a writer in Farm and Home and that Is it pays to do It when the ground is solid There is much feeding to be done during the winter Generally the hay is stacked in the field at harvest time and hauled to the feed racks as need ed I have learned to haul and stack In the rack at harvest time This takes a little longer but saves time in the end and extra hauling- I do my hauling as far as possible when I have firm footing for the horses Trying to haul loads when the ground is soft has made more balky horses than any other cause I believe at any rate this Is a good time to bring out the balk in them if there Is any If you want to save horses do the hauling when they can do it easiest and it will be easiest for you at the same time Easily Made Vinegar We make 10 to 12 gallons fine ap ple vinegar every year As soon as apples come we take the parings and put them in a sixgallon stone jar and tamp them with a

were touched by a pickpocket at the Southern depot in Lexington last Monday night For tunately Mr Moore did not have any great amount of money on his person at the time for if he did the chances are that he would be minus it now All that he lost in the deal was a pocket book containing an expense account book and some papers that are absolutely to any one except himself Mr Moore said that after he had missed his book he then emembered the man who got it and the time he went in his Dockets Mr Moore says the man who he thinks is the one would never be taken for a pickpocket as he said he looked more like one of the sons of the tall and uncut that he did a pickpocket The other two men who were touched were relieved of about 1 500 State Superintendent Expresses Ap predation of of Prof R

can quite understand that in a moment of irritation of anger of vengeance or of forgetfulness of ones human character one may kill another either in defense of those dear to one or in ones own defense A man may under the influent of patriotic intoxication even participate in the common murder of war That men im the full possession of their human facullieil 1 ilofThe catechisms tell us that it is not a crime to kill a person when the depriving of such a person of his life is an act of the state or an act of justice In legal and scientific works all the arts of sophistry are resorted to in order to prove that killing in ihe interests of the state is a necessary process in the advance of civilization Haeckel for example declares that the death penalty is not only a just chastisement for criminals but a benefit for the better part of the human race It is my opinion that the mechanism of theY state inconceivable without murder ii incompatible with GhrisJIanitv AT fj J f J I t lI I t

and the front bedroom which joined it opened on the veranda irtof in common with a dozen other rooms Inside the hallway perhaps sight feet wide and 25 feet long of iered the only approach to our room from the stairs The situation wa not good for defense and at the thought I had a mind even then to seek other quarters It was too late for such a move however and I decided to make the boy1uparlorWithFitzhugh the two strongest men of the party The north bedroom opening on the hallway the veranda roof and the parlor looked to be the weakest partof my position but I thought It might be used to advantage as a post sf observation The windows were aruarded with shutters of no great strength We closed and secured those of the parlor and the inner bedroom 4well as possible Those of

moment I could see nothing of my henchman but the win tow was open Then in the obscurity thought I discovered his body lying calf way across the windowsill I vaited for him to finish his observa ions on the weather but as he made 10 move I was struck with the fear hat he had met foul play and touched rim lightly In a flash he had turned on me and felt the muzzle of a revolver pressing igainst my side If you wouldnt mind turning that sun the other way It would suit me just as well I said Oh its you is it said Abrams with a gulp I thought Darby Meek er and his gang was at my back sure Did you hear anything I asked Yes there was a call out here a bit ago And theres half a dozen men men or more out there nowright at the corner Are you sure Yes I was alistenlng to em when you give me such a

was wide awake watching by the light ol the lamp that hung at the head of the stairway And after a caution to vigilance I returned to my chair For half an hour I listened closely The men were openeyed but silent The storm kept up its mournful mur jnur but no soUnd thqt I could attribute to man came to my straining earsSuddenly there was a cry from the hallWhos there It was Porters voiceAn instant later there was a crash of glass an explosion seemed to shake the house and there was a rush of many feet- I leaped to the door and flung it open Lockhart Wilson and Brown crowding close behind me A body of men filled the hallway and Porter was struggling in the hands of three rut finns His revolver whose shot we had heard had been knocked from his hand and lay oh the floor The sudden appearance of four more weapons in the open doorway startled tie enemy into pausing for a moment I sprang forward and gave the nearest of Porters assailants a blow that sent him staggering into the midst of his band and with a wrench Porter tore himself loose from the other two and was with us again What does this mean1I I cried an grily to the invaders What are you here for- There were perhaps a dozen of them altogether and in the midst of the band I saw the evil face and snake eyes of Tom Terrill At the sight of his repulsive features I could scarcE refrain from sending a bullet in his di

answer Give us the boy and we wont touch you And if not There was silence for a few mo mentsWhat are you waiting for growled a voice from beyond the turn ol the hall At the sound I thrilled to the

voice of Meeker There has got to be some bette reason for it than your demand Well weve got reasons enough here Stand ready boys Look out I said to my men witt a glance behind At I turned I saw

Bloodthirsty to Calmly Pass en the Taking of Hu man Life Executioners Perform Operations and Acted as Doctors When Great Britains statute book was still In the Draconian state from which it was redeemed by Sir Samuel Romllly and the penalty of death Inflicted for the most trivial offenses surgeons were exempted from serving on Juries in capital vases It must not be supposed however that this was because their profession was believed to make them too humane for such work as was then Imposed on jurymen W6 are sorry to say It was for the opposite reason They were ex empted on the same ground as butch ers whose occupation it was thought tended to make them too bloodthirsty This ought not perhaps surprise us since two or three centuries ago ex ecutioners not infrequently performed surgical operations This seems to have been particularly the case In Den mark At any rate we have more knowledge on this point In regard to that country than any other In Janus some time ago Dr K Carom of Copenhagen published a number of documents bearing on the subject The most ancient of these bears date July 24 1579 and Is a license Issued by Frederick II to Anders Frelmut executioner of Copenhagen granting him the right to set bones and treat old wounds He was expre sly forbidden to meddle with recent wounds In 1G09 it Is recorded in the municipal archives of Copenhagen that Gaspar the hangman hail received four rigs dalers for the cure of two sick chil dren In the Infirmary In 1638 Christian IV summoned the executioner of Gluckstadt in Holstein to examine the diseased foot of the crown prince In a letter addressed to Ole Worm a leading Danish physi clan of the day Henry Koster physi clan In ordinary to the king complains bitterly of the slight thus put upon him He says that for two whole months the hangman who is as fit to treat the case as an ass Is to play the lyre bad thE case in hand and tin doctor was not asked for advice and although the case went steadily from bad to worse the executioner received a fee of 200 rlgsdalers and a large silver goblet rewards says the doctor plaintively which the greatest among us would not have received had he succeeded in curing the prince according to the rules of art Again in 1681 Christian V gave te of 200 rigsdalers to the Copen hagen hangman for curing the leg of a page In 1695 Andreas Liebknecht the Copenhagen executioner was in such repute or his treatment of din ease that he wrote a book on the subject In the name of the holy and ever blessed Trinity In 1732 Bergen an executioner In Norway was authorized by royal decree to practice surgeryEven up to the early years of the nineteenth century this extraordinary association of surgery with the last penalty of the law continued Erik Peterson who was appointed public executioner at Trpndhjem In 1796 gervfd as surgeon to an Infantry regiment in the war with Sweden and retired in 1S14 with the rank of surgeon y major Frederick l or Prussia chusr bis favorite hangman Coblenz to bt his physician in ordinary- It might be suspected that this pe culiar combination of functions had its origin In a satirical view of the art of healing but in the records we have quoted we can trace nothing of the kind Perhaps the executioner drove a trade in human fat and other things supposed to possess marvelous heal ing properties He may thus have come to be credited with skill in heal ing though the association surely represents the lowest degree to which the surgeon has ever fallen in public es teem and social position Compared with the hangman a gladiator and even an undertaker may be considered respectable British Medical Journal Painting the Town Red That expression painting the town red is not writes a correspondent the creation of some unknown cock ney

ornamental plants In public or private grounds as to gIve pleasure ant benefit to the public as welt as themselves He says further on the same subject Ornamental plants become in the hands of the civic horticulturists the garments of civic Improvement for they clothe parks bulldings lawns streets and land scapes It Is well with any community that contains one or more of this class of improvement workers for they are in deed qualified to intelligently carry for ward a comprehensive plan of work t for beautification that will find a hearty response from all classes of res idents says the Los Angeles Times A comprehensive plan Implies a care fully considered summing up of all the needs of a district which lie in the power of an improvement society to supply either directly or Indirectly giv ing first place and time to those basis problems which when solved will make easy the task of carrying out the bal ance of the plan This work may not with profit be in trusted to those who are either most enthusiastic or most energetic or even a well balanced combination of the Srtwo Those who are best Qualified to eany out a plan are not always best alifled to No more serious problemever confronted a section town or city than the proper assign lmentof work to individual members t of an improvement society for an in telligent adjustment of the problems In hand by proper methods often turn Into success what would ordinarily prove a succession of failures NATURE STUDY COURSES Plan to Interest Children In Town f Beautiful Work taOne of the safest surest and most effective methods of Interesting the children In beautifying the school grounds parkways the home and eventually all public property Is to in struct them in nature study courses i particularly in plant life The average child has so far grown up to pass by certain trees and plants on his way to school without even taking note of what they are This indifference re mains In most instances precisely the same from the first school day to the very last one A street tree passed 9 each day during all these school years has simply meant to him an object of certain dimensions but of no more In terest than the buildings along the Mme route of travel But have him bring to school and study the foliage and blossom ofthis tree and it immediately becomes an o- bdject of unusual interest as does much vegetation an Interest that in creases to the end of life Many states r have adopted nature study In the pub lie schools solely to teach pupils about the common things about him on every hand Garden plants field crops weeds trees and everything in the plant kingdom may be used to great advantage and everlasting value When interestedInbecome apparent In the home garden later upon the

IMPROVEMENT How Parks and Playgrounds Help to Lessen Crime The American Civic association Is busy gathering data about city town and village improvement In Chicago according to an article in Suburban Life it is found that the opening of the south side parks is having a marvelous effect on juvenile crime The figures are not yet completely tabulated but the reduction is estimated to be in excess of 50 per cent It is found too that the effect on the public health of such facilities Is very great A certain district of Harrisburg was about to be cut out because of its un healthy condition by one of the Insur ance companies but after the estab- lishmentA of a park In that vicinity the health of the section so improved that the insurance company gladly keeps 1m with its business It is much more essential to have a properly equipped playground for chil dren than it is to have drives and flow er bedsin fact the drives and flower beds may come at the last though there should always be park highways through the public property set aside for park purposes Sand boxes are easily made and are mighty Interesting to the children A proper outdoor gymnasium costs from 1000 to R2000 and it will at once de- creaseI crime and disorder and Increase the public health A wading pool for the children Is excellent The first thing however usually needed is a public ball diamond and If possible j public tennis courts Baths and other play and recreation facilities may readi ly follow In good order Infectious Improvement Fevers Remember that village and farm Improvement fevers are catching and where one home shows care and beauty another will soon follow suit Once started on a village street the fever spreads until there are many beauty spots along the way It is the lame with the farming

housekeeping is the continuous wash Ing and wiping of dishes says a woman in the Housekeeper Methinks I hear a cry of horror from a horde of housekeepers but many of them have nevertheless at one time or another rebelled against the stack of dishes which looms up like the school boys hash three times a day It is queer how some women will wear themselves out rather than step aside from the beaten path They have yet to learn the Joy that comes from taking an independent tack andI making the work subservient to the worker from being the master instead of the slave To many women the bugbear of housework is dishwashing Why wash dishes three times a day Do it in the morning when fresh Scrape the din ner dIshes stack in a large pan filled with cold water and cover Treat the supper dishes the same way and do not allow your conscience to keep you awake one single hour It will not make the task too heavy the pent morning if you try my way After washing each piece In hot suds and rinsing in hot not warm water put them piece by piece in the wire drainer price 10 cents as nearly on edge or aslant as possible and let stand until dry Glasses of course and silver must be wiped but the former can be left filled after using and the latter put Into a pitcher or deep Jug until some odd minute when one is not 10weary with well doing that another turn of the screw seems next to Impossible The

of simple floral patterns are traced on canvas and all the portions of the design applied In the correct colorings The embroiderer merely works over the lines In careful stitches as in the most

Important Factor Commercial 1forldt i CLARKI T IS universally conceded that farming agriculturesis the basic industry upon which all other industries greatly depend The measure of the countrys crops is to a large extent the measure of the countrys prosperity and the purchasing power of the people is increased or bountif-ul or meager Therefore the commercial interests of the country are vitally affected by the quantity and quality of the crops and it becomes a matter of vast importance to them to know in advance what the crop prospects are during the growing season and what the output is at harvest With such information carefully and scientifically gathered and compiledand honestly disseminated so that it can be depended upon as being as reliable as any forecast or estimate can possibly be and relied upon as emanating from an impartial and disinterested source the mer chants and manufacturers of the country can certainly act with a degree of prudence and intelligence not possible

the country know that they can give liberalorders for goods to be handled by them several weeks or months later the manufacturers located far from the wheat fields know where there will be a large demand for such of their products as are used by all dependent upon the wheat industry she railroad companies know they will have heavy freights to transport and so the advance knowledge regarding the probable future outcome of the crop serves as a guide to every branch ofcommerce and trade connected with the wheatgrowing areas of the country The same is true as to the other cropscorn cotton oats rye tobacco etc c Ifon the other hand the condition of growing crops is unfavorable reliable information to that effect is equally in fact more important to trade and commerce than when the promise is
