still further declined in 1908 the year just closed to 25455 hogsheads There will be no material increase if any in the local trade in 1909 un less the crop of this year comns on the market very early

YEAR LIKELY TO BE GOOD CROP YEAR Small Grains Growing Rapidly To bacco Land Held at High Price After a few months of gloom when it looked as if the drought would cut short many of the crops and cut off the vater supply it now seems that the coming year will be one of the best crop years for a long time The small grain which was sown early and looked sickly during the fall and early winter is rapidly grow ing and is beginning to stool and if the winter continues to be open the crop will be far above the average The only chance for the wheat crop to be a failure is a hard freeze when there is no snow on the ground There has been sufficient rain for the ground to be in almost perfect condition and at present about eighty per cent of the spring plowing is done and in a few more weeks the remainder will have been broken Increase in Corn and Oats A larger amount of corn and oats will be put in this year than last Much preparation is being made to ward putting in a large acreage of tobacco some land renting at a high price as one farmer put it buying ground without getting a deed for it The breaking of the ground for the tobacco beds will not be started be fore the latter part of this month or in February The condition of the fruit trees is said to be prime and unless some un foreseen change in the weather oc curs there will be a bumper crop Strawberries did not fare so well as the larger fruit and unless it comes out unusually well there will be a small crop in the Blue Grass this spring Raspberries and blackber ries have stood the drought without damage and from

and knowing that I knew something of it too he dared not be gin them Mr Knapps feelings in the matter had made me unwilling to keep the boy in my house but at first 1 thought it the best way of protecting him and had him with me Then one night the house was broken into and two men were discovered in the r mI where the boy usually slept I taken him to my own bed tbat night for he was ailing and so he escaped The alarm was raised before they found him and the men fled Mr Knapp was confident that they were ordinary housebreakers but I knew better I dared keep the boy there no assit suitable house for the boy andhireJ men to guard it But after one experience in which the place was at tacked and almost carried by storm Henry thought it better to hide tho boy and watch the enemy The rest you know Heaving a sigh as of relief she went on Mr Lane was insane I am certain- I tried to have Mr Knapp take steps to lock him up But Mr Knapp could net believe that his brother was so wicked as to wish to take the life of his own child I think he was i jarful 1of a scandal in which the relationship should become known But there was a time a few weeks ago when I was near spurring Mr Knapp to action It was at the time of his trip to Virgina City Mr Lane came to the house while I was away and scared the ser rants into fits with his threats and curses Luella had the courage and tact to face him and get him out of the house and I telegraphed for Mr Knapp IS remember the occasion though 1 didnt know what was going on Well Mr Knapp was very angry and had a long talk with Lane He toldjrae that the creature cried and pleaded for forgiveness and promise amendment for the future And Mr Knapp believed him Yet that very night you were assailed with Luella in Chinatown The truth flashed on me The groans and cries behind the locked door in Doodridge Knapps office the voices which were like to one man pleading and arguing with himself were all explained I think the assault was something ian accident she continued or rather it was more the doing of Ter rill than of Lane What was the cause of Tenills enmity I asked He seemed to take a hearty personal interest in the case for a hired man For one thing a family interest I think he is a son of Lanes early years For another he had a violent personal quarrel with Henry over some matter and you have had the benefit of the enmity But I dont think youll hear of him againor Meeker either They will be in too much cf a hurry to leave the state At her last vvortls we were at the wharf and landed free from fear r An hour

where I stood in the eyes of this capricious young woman but my speculations were cut short by the coming of Mrs Knapp There was no reservation in her greeting As we talked over vthe events of the

That Helped Its In ventor to a Good Snooze The day that Hardwick finished the otthehis suburban home earlier than usual but too tired to think Mrs Hard wick met him joyously at the door t0 George she said Tin so glad youre home early Theres a demonstration in hat trimming tonight at the Womens Exchange Im sure it will be useful to me and it may be the means of my saving a lot of money on toItake me in dear Well I am pretty tired but I guess I can keep awake long enough to get you there Then Ill go over to the I J The Candle Was Lighted and Hard wick Was Soon Peacefully Snoring studio and have a nap and call round at the exchange for you You can nave a good long nap too for I want to get there about seven and you neednt call for me till half past ten Youre a dear Promptly at seven oclock Hard wick saw his wife melt into a group of women at the exchange He made his way over to the studio and let himself in It was very quiet There was no reason why he should not have a fine nap And then it came to him that he had no way of waking at the right time The clock en the wall was not an alarm clock and his watch of course would be of no service The janitor he knew was never there after six oclockIt as if he would have to keep awake all the evening for the sake of being on hand at half past tenBut Hardwick has always been a man of resources Indeed Mrs Hard wick says that he can think quicker and to better effect than any other man she ever knew A problem like this is just the sort of thing that puts him on his mettle and gets his brain to working with a precision and direct ness that nearly always produce re suitsHe began to look round Nothing started any train of thought or offered any useful suggestion until his eye happened to light upon the stump of a candle on the shelf in the little washroom It was only an inch long and after holding it in his hand a moment Hardwick put it back on the shelf went to a drawer and took out j He never voted girls a bor Or pulled his sisters hair i Or grumbled when he found herdolls Were filling every chair IJel1ever fought with other boys his brothers head r find never quarrelled in his play Like me and brother Ted a freshcandlea whole one this time Putting this Jn the Candlestick arid lighting itr Hardwick waited lill it had burned down far enough to leave a square end Then he extinguish it and with a fine brush and some black paint made three hair lines round the top of the candle an eighth of an inch apart he measured the dis tance carefully with his dividers With his watch In front of him he lighted the candle again and timed thg burning to the second line It was almost exactly five minutes To confirm the result he let the candle burn on until the next line was reached The register this time also was five minutes and Hardwick put out the candle with a satisfied grin Taking the dividers again Hard wick measured four and threeeighths inches down the candle and there made a mark Since it was then 20 minutes pasts ven and he wanted to be waked at a quarter past ten he allowed 85 periods of five minutes each and an eighth of an inch of candle for each periodWith a saw which formed part of the studio rroperties he made a cut in toe candle at the place he had marked sawing just halfway through till he reached the wick In this cut he tied a light cotton string the other end of which passed over the back of a chair From that he suspended the tin pan that he washes his brushes in and in the pan he placed two large iron spoons and a dipperThe only other thing required was something to hold the candle firmly The barrel of an old musket from a wall trophy served the purpose The candle was wedged firmly into the muzzle the stock was lashed vertically to the back of a chair The candle was lighted and Hardwick was soon peacefully snoring At 17 minutes past ten he was wakened by an unearthly bung and clatter of tinware For a moment he was too dazed to realize where he was or what had happened but when he had turned on the electric light he found as he had expected a cotton string with the loop at one end burned through and an overturned tin pan on floorWhen he told Mrs Hardwick that he had invented made and tested an alarm clock in 15 minutes from the material in his studio she would not believe him until he described it since then she has told her friends about it and I have related it as she told it to me Hardwick himself is modest about his inventionsYouths Companion The Wisdom of Youth In the gcod old days when the child was seen not heard it was the younger
