It was said today by a number of the members of the board that the pledge for the pooling of the crop for the present year differed very little from that of the pledge of the pool just closed Enormous Probable The indicatirins are now that an enormous crop will be raised this year It was supposed for a time that the society would restrict the acreage for the present year but it is said that the pledge for 1909 will in no way provide for a limit on the amount to be grown Reports from the members of the board from the different counties in the society show that the society will control nearly all of the large crop of 1909 Since the success of the pool has been demonstrated it is be lieved there will be less opposition to the pool than there Was the past year iinilfUnuKUtK COURTS Nannie

Corpse to I Detroit Mich Jan 7 The dis membered body of Rev J H Car michael a Methodist minister i was found partly consumed by fire in the two heating stoves of one of his three churches near Columbus in the southwestern part of St Clair county Investigation was begun at once to clear away a temporary uncertainty as to the identity of the victim and to obtain clews regarding the mur derer and the motive for the crime Identification of the dead clergyman- was soon effected by Orville undsay who was sent to the church for that purpose by Mrs Carmichael whq had been in great distress since her husband failed to return home and who surmised that the minister was the victim as soon as sue heard the report that some one had been murdered In the Columbus church But clews of the murderer and his motive were more difficult to obtain There was a rumor that a strange man had left a train at Hickey and had been directed to the Columbus church and there were other rumors indicating that two men were impli cated in the crime The fact that several coins were found in the cloth ing of the dead man and in the ashes In the stoves precluded the theory of robbery and at the time of his death it was not known that the murdered minister had an enemy in the world Myron Brown who lives near the scene of the tragedy was the first to discover the crime While he was waiting at the crossroads to keep an appointment the cold wind drove him to seek shelter in the church He was surprised to find the church doors unlocked and upon opening them was terrified to see the church floor the pews and even the commu nipn table daubed with blo d and fragments of bloody clothing scar tered all around The authorities oil their arrlpalat the church found parts oj hedis membered body in the two stoves located respectively at the front and rear and discovered in one stove the head of what was apparently a new hatchet the handle of which had been burned off A dirk was also found in the church and it is believed that the dirk served for the murder while the hatchet was used to cut the body to pieces The ministers horse was found tied to a tree in the village of Pine River the dead preachers overcoat being discovered in the buggy Pine River is a small village near Thornton on the main line of the Grand Trunk railroad and fully 20 miles from the scene or the crime PLAY OFF

Viennese naturalist says that foxes have scales as well as hair upon their skins From this he argues that they have descended from ancestors bearing horny skins like the arma dillos and the ant eatery Every one who has examined a rat closely knows that its tail is scaly throughout its length Those who are familiar with wild boars know also that there are oarts of their bodies on which there are distinct scales Wher evv the scales are found on these creatures with hairs as well these hairs grow in tufts at regular inter vals between the scales As this form of growth is often found In animals which have no scales it is believed that when it exists it proves origin from a race which once bore scales Especially is this true of the fox If his skinbe examined closely it will be found that the hairs are arranged in groups of three bunches each bunch containing fourteen or fifteen hairs and that the skin has the appeariuice of that of a scaled ant eater from which the scales1 have been plucked Under the microscope it looks scaly Herr Toldt says tie fox Is one of the man mals tltatcab be most correctly coup pared with the reptiles being of a speeth1izedtypeNew Xork1V9rld i i t 1 j r

Villages and Small Citiss Should Work Together to Build Up- Suchan Environment That the Young Folks Will Remain There George H Maxwell who believes iu rural and small town life as greatly preferable to the city offers this con vincing argument in Maxwells Tails manThis nation today is enjoying a plethora of prosperity and figures that dar zle the imagination But there is another sidefto this fruit of material wealth which now seems se luscious that some day when bitten into it may prove a Dead sea apple It is the abnormal concentration of trade industry and population in thc great cities where all the influences that degenerate humanity rich as well as poor have full sway and grow apace And when we study seriously anil soberly the effects of this unnatural city life on the mental and physical character of our people it is a serious question whether the gigantic stride we are making in the accumulation of material wealth is not at the expense of human wealth and whether it may not turn out in the end to have been too dearly bought It has been strikingly said of the civ ilizations ot ancient times which were destroyed by the degeneracy of their people that they grew rotten and ripe for destruction not in the fields but in the narrow lanes anti crowded city streets and in the palacoss of their nobilityIf one will walk through the slums of the east side of New York or the shacks of Pittsburg or the tene ments of Chicago and see the swarm ing myriads of children that are grow ing to manhood and womanhood in those evil environments he will be startled by the revelation that riot a few only but the great majority of our workingpeople in the great centers of population live in surroundings that are unfit for children to be reared in and must inevitably deteriorate the race From every life lived under such conditions something is taken that can not be replaced by any figures showing only human activity that has not con- trIbuted to the improvement of human life The saddest and most depressing thought that can find a place in the mind when contemplating the wretched conditions under which so many millions of lives are lived in this country is the realization of the fact that if a greater proportion of human Industry the same laborious work of human hands that builds the palaces of the millionaires and the millions of flais tenements and shacks that are occu pled by the working people could be devoted to building the right kind of suburban or rural homes for those same workers what a different nation this would be a generation or so hence While the people are crowding into the cities the villages and small towns are being depleted not only of their population but their trade aa well In stead of working together to realize the real joys of village life with all its possibilities of human sympathy close friendships love of natures beauties and the inspiration of the ideal home life that is possible in suctunn environ ment the spirit of unrest possesses many and as soon as opportunity of fers they plunge into the maelstrom of the city life Those who stay in the village in the majority of cases do not work together as they might to create an environment so attractive that the city would have no temptations to offer that would lure any human worker away from the safe anchorage of a rural home to the artificial life of the tene ment or flat The people of other nations are far ahead of us in the realization of the joys of life next to nature and far from the madding crowds ignoble strife In the orient both the Chinese and the Japanese have for 5000 years realized for the great ma jority of their people the pleasure of a life in a homecroft in an environ ment that developed the dignity the mental and physical strength and the tireless and patient energy which are the underlying motive forces that are lifting those nations forward and up ward today in the great contest for national superiority in which they are engaged Settings For Public Buildings Along with the growing appreciation of parkways comes the recognition of the value even necessity of a setting of greensward for all public buildings In the past areas set aside for munici pal buildings have had the whole aVail- able space covered by one or more structures A lawn belt about all mu nicipal buildings is now being demand ed and the cry is growing louder and more unmistakable that these planta tion belts should be wider When this growing artistic spirit has reached the proper stage We shall find grass coy ered parkways and street trees on all our principal business streets Playgrounds a Necessity A fundamental condition for the per manent development of a free pepple fs that they shall in childhood learn t govern themselves Self government

atl5eBtter Fed Than Is the Wle Work Horse Many farmers seem to think that the wintering of the colt IS ifo different than the wintering of the idle farm horses This is a mistake It is quite a different thing for the colt is a growing animal while the horse has already attained his development The wintering of the colt is the same as the wintering of any other young animal Good feed and care are both essential to the best results Where these are not supplied there is bound to be a stunting of the young animal and this is not to be desired A run about the straw stack with nothing else to eat is not enough for the growing colt He needs something more than clear straw for his daily diet The straw does not supply the muscle making food that is necessary for his best development The colt should be treated to a grain ra tion as well as one of good roughage Dr Alexander puts it well in the following advice intended for all whore wintering growing colts It is a ruinous policy to rough colts through the winter on Coarse in nutritious straw and hay They should be generoiisy fed at all times so that they may be kept steadily growing for Ii they stop growing in winter or lose part of the gain made while a suckling that loss never can wholly be regained The bones sinews and muscles have been stunted for allI time and the dwarfed animal can made only a makebelieve drafter by the fattening process which is detri mental to a work horse In addition to hay fodder and straw oats and bran should be fed in winter alone with a sufficient amount of corn to maintain heat aid furnish some of the vim and vigor Dried blood meal also is excellent as a small addition to the ration to bring up the percentage of digestible protein or flaxseed meal or cake may be used With the same object while roots such as carrots are a fine adjunct as they regulate the bowels and act bene ficially upon the skin WINDLASS FOR ScALDING HOGS It Will Make the Work at Killing Time Easy Set two poles in the ground with crotches in end as shown in illustra tion Next take round pole with old wagon wheel on OIe end set in crotches Set barrel under the pole at one end to scald hogs Place bench Windlass tfor Scalding Hogs where hog can be scraped and then wound up to pole Any number of hogs can be dressed in this manner I use hooks for ring and hook for attaching gambrel Let the iron band pass round the windlass pole The ring must be loose on pole The sketch taken from Prairie Farmer shows the plan The cut shows that One hog has been scraped and pulled up to the hook where the entrails can be removed With the same rope over barrel another hog can be scalded and scraped and then drawn to the second hook and so on IS STOCK NOTES t Good bedding fpi tmals is a kind that will keep them ry warm and comfortable and 1st capable of absorb ing large amounts of liquid Mixed farming needs live stock to bring it to its highest point of sue cess Animal husbandry is now coming to be considered as the foundation of all agricultural progress Corn is becoming so valuable for human feed that it is passing out of the lists of animal feeds With a little care hogs can be kept healthy but it is difficult to cure them when sick A variety of food is better forhbgs than one kind Our best beef js now being produced on Tnghpriced land and on highpriced fees Feeding New Corn to Hogs Whether or not new corn causes cholera or swine plague it isnot best to begin feeding shoats all they will eat of new corn When I begin feed ing new corn I cut stalks and all as long as they chew the stalks and at the same time I feed them old corn till they become accustomed to the change saysa writer in Farmers Voice Thus I make the change gradually without causing any derangement of the bowels which Is one of the prime cause of cholera and all hog diseases I have never lost a hog from feeding new corn but I have never put hogs on a full feed of now corn I cannot say front experience whether or not new coin has even a tendency toward ckusingf diseases of swine hilt to guard against it byTnaking a gradual changescams to me the wisest poliy f f4 i L t WHEAT BRAN FOR COWS Character of the Feed from Different MiltS Varies Considerably Letters received at the station Indicate that in some parts of Michigan- a prejudice exists against roller process wheat bran says Prof Smith Of the Michigan station Some farmer prefer finely ground bran others are prejudiced in avor of coarser samples The product of roller mills is not uniform in this respect In some samples the germ is ground with the bran In other mills the germ is found either in the flour as a separate byproduct To get some light on the relation of the composition of bran to its physical appearance 14 samples were analyzed some of them from roller mills some from burr stone mills some othIper cent of protein varied from 1432 per cent in the bran of a roller proc ess mill with an annual output of 1200 tons to 19 per cent in first grade roller process brans from one of the immense mills in Minneapolis Little variation was found in the composition of extremely coarse bran and the finer articles The chemist says on this topic The two extremes the very coarse and the very fine are of much the same composition while l neither shows the best sample so for as feeding properties are concerned The medium grades generally show theIpro- duced by the roller process should be more valuable than that produced by burr stones as in one the germ which isrich in fat is separated out with the flour and in the other this part into the bran The roller goesI brana are all perceptibly protein than are those of the burr stone process It is not so muchI the amount of starch present bran as the amount of protein and fat that is of consideration to the feeder The end for which the millers are constantly working in the milling process the most complete separation of the starch possible and the needs of the consumer of the bran a food rich in protein and fat are identical The new milling process instead of supply ing the feeder with an inferior grade of feeding stuffs furnishes him with one much superior to that supplied by the old process CONCRETE ICE HOUSES Structure Which Will Prove Economi cal for Dairy tFarm On dairy farms where permanent ice house is desired a concrete struc ture will prove economical The first cost is slightly greater than where wood is used but the ability of the concret to stand Constant dampness on the inside makes it moro desirable As shown in the sketch taken frohi Farm and Home the building should An Everlasting Ice House have an opening extending from surface of the outside ground almost to the gable which will allow ice to be put in A small window for ventilation should be placed at the top of each gable The walls of this house may be constructed double by inserting a mold between the forms when the con crete is poured Two threeinch walls with a twoinch air space willserve best The roof may also be made of concrete by laying forms for rafters and reinforcing it with light iron rods DAIRYING IN WINTER Good Barn Good Feed and Fresh- Water Necessary to Success Calves dropped in September and October are most desirable because they thrive better at the startand can quickly be converted into veal at a time when baby meat Is at the high est price Another advantage is the cow will go dry at a time of the year when flies are bad and when the weather Is warmest To make winter dairying a success it is necessary that the cows have a comfortable barn and plenty of good feed and fresh water In the winter the farmer or dairyman can give the cows more attention than during the summer months says the Journal of Agriculture and In spare time improvements may be made iu the stables and outhouses The fall Cow can start into the winter in good condition and with proper attention can be kept in shape all winter Cows that milk heavily should be fed freely from the silo It will be found that if calves are kept for breeding the win ter calf will do better than the one born in the heat of summer when flies bad and is short In the alllkindsfinally are placed in winter quarters make them comfortable and they will yield milk in the exact proportion in which they are housed and fed Calves may be given skin milk with grain a

of This Important forage Plant a By G F Freeman Assistant BotanistKansas Red rootrot although not so at present is likely to ecome the most haslqngdeath of half the crop within one or two seasons has been redorded It is now rapidly spreading jn the alfalfa fields in Kansas and will in the near future most probably demand the most serious attention of both the farmer and the experiment station authori ties The disease begins in different parts of the field where at first a single plant may die From this center of Infection the fungus grows in all di rections through the soil killing the plants as it proceeds Thus a circle of steadily increasing radius is formed at the edge of which plants in all I I I II Alfalfa Leaf Affected By LeafSpot Fungus Pseudopeziza Medi caginisy stages of the disease may be found The first external sign of the disease is a yellowing of the plant which soon after withers and dies On pulling up a dead nr dying plant the roots will be found to be covered with a violet or brownishred mat of fungus strands or hyphae The infected area spreads from three to twenty feet in all directions iri a season The dying is most rapid during the hot months of sum mer The fungus threads grow into the bark of the roots as far as the cambium layer which they kill The plant is thus girdled and will there fore soon die This fungus forms dark knotlik tubers which are said by Prunet to live in the ground two or three years He therefore Recom mends that badly diseased fields should not be cropped to clover or alfalfa for several years A thoroughly practical means ofconr knownDiggingfrom one and a half to two feet deep and working into the soil heavy appli cations of lime or sulphur have been recommended as being beneficial in some instances but with these treat Pustule of Leaf Spot Greatly Enlarged ments success has by no means been uniform It is the opinion of the writ er that this disease should receive the most serious attention of both the farmers and experiment station work ers throughout the alfalfa growing states in order that if possible some practicable means may be found of eradicating or controlling it before it becomes so widespread as to seriously threaten the profits now derived from alfalfa growing Leaf spot was first described by Li bert in France In 1832 but it Is now found in practically every part of the worldwhere alfalfa is grown In 1891 Prof Pammel estimated the loss prom the disease in Iowa to be as high as 50 per cent of the total yield When the plants are about onehalf grown it appears as yellowishbrown spots on the upper surface of the leaves The affected area soon works through and appears on the under side Alfalfa Leaf Affected By the Rust Fun gus Uromyces Striatus of the leaf also Badly affected leaves will turn yellow and drop off thus reducing the forage value of the hay by making it more stemmy The yield Is also reduced through the loss of th fallen leaves and by the weakening of the plant The brown spots are caused by the growth of fungus threads or mycelium through the in terior tissues of the leaf which they destroy and cause to turn brown Soon mats of fungus tissue are formed which produce small pustules near the center of the spot These pustules consist of numerous sacklike bodies each of which bears eight spores Be tween the sicklike bodies may be sgen jionsporebearlng threads which rare called paraphyses When the i tyLi t- t 0 r I spores are ripe they are set free and blown by the wind or knocked by dash ing rains to the leaves of other plants which they soon infect The most practical treatment for this disease is frequent cutting All of the hay should be removed from the field as early as possible in order that few shattered leaves may be left on the ground By this means mast of the spores are removed from the field leaving the new shoots compara tively free from infection Whenever this leafspot becomes very damaging I Central FigurePustule of LeafSpot Fungus Bottom FigureCross Sec tion of Pustule Showing Spore Sacks Top FigureSpore Sacks Greatly Enlarged it is bestto cut the alfalfa whether It is ready or not and allow the hay to remain on the ground long enough to become thoroughly dry after which it should be burned over Of course by this means one crop is lost but it will repay the loss in the Increase of subsequent crops on account of the more effectual destruction of the fun gus spores Rust causes round or elongated pus tules on the under side of the leaves The epidermis is ruptured disclosing a mass of reddishbrown spores The rust pustule may be easily distin- guIshed from the leafspot by the fact that in the former the epidermis is plainly ruptured whereas in the leaf spot this is not evident except in drosssection and by use of the com pound miscoscope While rather com mon this rust does not seem to have caused serious loss in the alfalfafields of this country Methods of treat ment or control have not ore been investigated Downy mildew Is at first made noticeable by the large irregular yel m WJDr mIlJI Rust Pustule Greatly Enlarged low or white areas on the upper side of the leaf Upon examining the low er surface of such a leaf it will be found to be covered by a downy gray felt This felt consists of thousands of tiny branching gray threads or stalks which protrude through the stomata or breathing pores from the interior of the leaf and which bear the spores of the fungus in grapelike clus ters These spores are carried by the wind to other leaves of alfalfa or clover on which they germinate and produce an internal mycelium The fungus is carried over winter by means of resting spores which are formed inside of the old leaves in the late summer and autumn In the early e3peIso favor this disease that it

Schools to Become Interested Slowly but Surely In Trees and Plant Life Fine Outcome of Such a Course If in the future we are to have more beautiful cities and towns In both increased numbers as well as in improvement of those now existing it behooves us to see that the rising generation is so developed and so instructed that it may be fully equal to the problems that will confront our citizens a score or more years hence Though much of the necessary educa tion and training will be given in the home by far the greater development should come as a result of intelligent teaching and suggestion at school As a large part of our civic and homej beauty Is dependent upon horticulture nature study especially that of plant life and the school gardens are going to prove the two strongest factors in the upbuilding of the civic improve ment worker who is to follow us Our children must be taught in a natural way about the things of na ture all about them This develop ment will not come by the present day cramming process or imparting an astounding lot of information during a few years The child rather should be encouraged to become in terested slowly but surely until the proper taste for investigation is de veloped in his mind so that he will thenceforth go forward without the aid of the teacher except ae the latter is a steering committee of one says the Los Angeles Times Restrictions must be removed both at home and School and the child allowed to inves tigate unshackled But a short time ago a class of school children were asked how many had street trees in front of their homes and there were some who real ly did not know whether any wore there or not others knew there wor trunks in evidence but had no definite knowledge as to a live head or crown above Very few knew the kind of tree that grew in the parkway yet all were old enough to know this much and more regarding plant life If each child were asked to minutely describe the first street tree encountered after leaving home for school and the peculiarities of form bark leaf blossom or fruit or boln a grand start could be made If the next day each child could bring a leaf from the same tree for comparison assisted by a really Intel ligent teacher and this line of work carefully and systematically followed out we would soon have cities and towns composed entirely of advocates of street tree planting for all would love trees or be interested therein bE- cause of their intimate knowledge of at least all the more common sorts When a little older this student body would so eagerly and easily take up the study of systematic planting that the transition from nature study would eytsl In name only At the end of their school days these student would know practically all plant life in all its phases from seed to matu rity not from what was taught at school for such instruction could form but a small portion of the school day but from observation and experience suggested at school If such a course were pursued for but one generation our land throughout both in city and country would be one vast park of Individual plots connected and harmo nized by thoroughfares flanked with solid lines of street trees and endless ribbons of parkway lawns or flower beds We would then hear no more of city beautiful or country beauti ful for all would be one vast stretch of horticultural beauty from the At lantic to the Pacific In all of whicH territory southern California having the greatest possibilities would stand supreme over all other sections or states as the land of never ending summer sunshine and flowers Progress of Civic Improvement All through southern California reaching to points quite remote there Is a stronger trend toward public beau tifying and preservation of natural beauty than ever before Even down in the so called desert sections the Coachella and Imperial valleys where settlement and development of agri cultural lands have heretofore occu pied all available of both time and means the work of civic improvement and civic beautifying Is now under strong headway and able leaders All the more important towns are taking up this work In a thorough and sys tematic manner Even the rural resi dents are awake to the fact that to grow and market crops Is not all of life and to have the desert bloom as the rose Is to become a reality in t very near future From all parts of the California southland come reports of a great moral uplift manifested by the desire for better homes and home surroundings which bespeaks in no un certain tones that this end of the state will in the near future be one vast stretch of beautiful gardens made accessible to all who travel by tree lined roadways of perfect condition Build Up Dont Knock It costs nothing to be civil

is that of Jamie An derson when competing for the cham pionship at Prestwick in 1878 He Irtd just teed his ball for the seventeenth drive when a little girl standing among the spectators remarked that he had unconsciously placed it just in front of the proper line Although nobody else had noticed the fact this proved on examination by the referee to be correct Thereupon Anderson teed his ball again In a fresh position well behind the line and made a drive which landed him in the hole and eventually enabled him to win the match If however he bad played it from the original spot he would have been penalized a stroke and have lost the championship Clearly then luck on the links is something to be taken Into consideration whatever nonbelIev- ers may say to the contrary Baileys MagazineS What He
