!Peasant lows Up

A Golden Harvest.

Dud Triasre- f Ancient Coins
Umarik By Land Owner Val-
ued at Over $25,000.
A few days ago a small peasant pro.
S" prietor named Possati at Riva d'Ariano,
in the district of Ferrara, went forth
to plow. He went with his big white
oxen, in a somewhat melancholy mood,
for the bit of land he had bought from
his sister a year ago was muddy aind
arid, when all of a sudden, as the next
clod of earth fell aside, his eye caught
a gleam of something bright-a golden
coin-another-another! Breaking up
breathlessly the clods in the furrow, to
his amazement he found them full of
yellow gold coins. He urged on the
oxen-more coins! Pozatti had plowed
up a big treasure. With all his care
next day the news of his wonderful dis-
eovery got wind, and naturally some of
the neighbors, when night came
thought they would try to get a haul.
Poazati, however, was wide-awake and
went out to guard his treasure with his
gun, and wounded one of them, the
others made off.
GUARD IS PLACED.
This affray brought the whole affair
to the attention of the authorities, and
the prefect sent a guard of carabinieri
to protect the property and the rest of
the yet hidden treasure. Examination
\ shows the treasure of exceptional in-
terest. Many of the coins date from
the thirteenth century, some large and
others smaller and thick. There are
some of Cario Quinti. Some of the
earlier ones bear on one side a Latin
cross, with the loin cloth draped over it;
on the other the crown of thorns and a
woman in prayer. Many of the coins
bear the arms of the various dukes and
Ferrara, the most interesting of these
to us. perhaps, being some which bear
the effigy of the Duke of Hercules II of
whose wife, the Dutcn as
- y ervent Protestant and zealous
I edeer of all the persecuted Protest-
ants. It is roughly estimated that the
coins found so far amount in value to
over $25,000.
SCATTERED CONSIDEkABLY.
i? It is nearly certain that the money
was not a treasure hidden for safety,
because it is scattered over so wide ail
extent. Its presence is accounted for
in another manner. All the district
from a few miles from Ferrara to the
Adriatic consists of broken land-half
land, half water, and all "palude" or
marsh-and not so many hundred years
ago it was covered by the sea. The Po
brings down such a vast amount of de-
bris that its delta now spreads far out
to sea, and this delta is now being year-
S y "bonificato," or reclaimed. Thus, at
the old seaport of Ravenna, which now
lies seven miles inland, in the days of
the dukes of Ferrara ships sailed over
what is now cultivated ground; and it
is supposed that one was wrecked and
that its money chest, washed hither and
thither by the waters, scattered its con-
tents far and wide. Why the gold was
not found before is accounted for by
the fact that the ground has only been
reclaimed f6r two years. The first year
of reclaiming such ground the surface
is little more than "scratched," and
only the second year is the plow sent
deep.

ToBecco Growen Are Wearl l a
*road Smile Over Better Pres-
pecte.
The Kentucky and Tennessee tobac-
co growers have finally disposed ot the
crops of 1906 and 1907 to the American
Tobacco Company for 206 cents and 17
cents per pound, realizing about $14,-
000,000 from the sale.
The True Democrat learns that there
is a very decided upward tendency in
the tobacco market and that the grow-
ers of Len aid Gadsden counties are
likely to sell their present holdings at a
profit over the growth and harvesting.
Those who know tobacco conditions
well aver that no section of the coun-
try can produce a quality equal to that
of Northern Florida and Southern Geor-
gia, and that where there is one dollar
invested in the business now there will
be hundreds within a few years.

Chaires Personal and Locals.
Chaires, Nov. 24.-The Measuring
Party given by the Epworth League
here last Friday evening was a perfect
success despite the very dark cool even-
ing, and a few other discouragements.
The words of its invitation ran thus :
You are invited to be present on the
evening of November 2u at the parson-
age at Chaires.
"A Measuring Party we've giving you;
'Tis something novel as well as new.
Measure yourself on door or wall
And bring three cents for each foot
tall;
The extra inches a penny give,
And thereby show how high you live.
The money for your measure
Will give the Epworth League much
pleasure
With music and song and welcome
hearty,
We'll greet you at our Measuring
Party.
Refreshments free.
The net proceeds amounted to $11.19.
Among those from a distance were the
following: Mr. Chalker Barnett of
Tallahassee, Messrs. Miles Johnson and
Laurie Croucher of Centreville, Miss
Ruth Harvin of Tallahassee and Mr.
Thomas Bradley of Oak Dale. Mr. and
Mrs. Mickler, at whose home the social
was held did all in their power to make
the young people enjoy themselves
v. ith music and various diversions, and
they attested their enjoyment by some
of the number remaining till the wee
sma' hours. The amount raised will be
expended upon the double front rooms
of the parsonage, called the League
rooms.
We forgot to mention that Mr. Noble
Jones honored us by his presence Fri-
day evening. Mr. J. has been on his
farm four miles from the village on
business, but left Saturday to join his
family in the beautiful city of Savan-
nah, of which some one has said "the
elegance of the city and the hearttness
of the country meet you in a *ay that
give you wonder and delight." Mr.Jones
intends returning with his family to
their farm in February before starting
on their usual summer tour. Mr. Jones
is a true gentleman and a man of high
ideals, and we only wish he were one of
our citizens.
Mr. J H. Patterson wears a broad
smile of late. Why? His wife and
two children returned last Wednesday
from the Biggs Sanitarium in North
Carolina. Mr. P. and little daughter
are much improved and they expect to
return for further treatment when their
spell of home sickness is past.
Miss Morah Harmon went to Talla-
hassee Saturday, remaining till Sunday
afternoon.
Mr. Elton Patterson is visiting his
sister, Mrs. Sterns, in Live Oak, and
visiting in the metropolis also. Per-
hals he will extend his trip to Tampa.
Mr. Dick May of Monticallo was a
guest in the burg Friday, and Mr.
Thomas Hancock of the Capital was to-
day.
Mir. and Mrs. Sterns of Live Oak via-
ited Mrs. S.'s parents from last Friday
tall Saturday afternoon.

An Industry In Which Tallahassee
and Leon ContfPeople May
Find Profit a sure.
As there are so many vigorous and
beautiful camphor trees in Tallahassee
and throughout Leon county, showing
that the plant is especially adapted to
this soil and climate, The True Demo-
crat reproduces the following from the
St. Petersburg Independent, hoping-r
that the industry may in time become a
profitable one in this section:
With further reference as to camphor
culture, one of our representatives
called at the home of L. P. Butler sev-
eral days ago and secured from him fur-
ther facts about the planting and set-
ting out of the trees also the method of
distilling the camphor from the leaves
and twigs.
Mr. Butler, at present a popular con-
ductor on the A. C. L., now yardmas-
ter in this city, was for eight years
manager of the famous Lake Villa Nur.
series located some years ago at Fruit-
land Park, Fla. After leaving this
place, he held the position of traveling
manager in Florida for M. E. Gillette,
the gentleman who had such a run on
naval oranges some sixteen years ago
in California; going from place to place
in the State and closely watching the
culture of that variety of oranges that
in later years was to becos mrfamous.
By the foregoing it is 0el peen that
Mr. Butler is an authort- -n this line,
and that his predictions asto the future
industry of camphor eiltre in this
State can be relied upon.
Mr. Butler, in his garden in this city,
has at present, twenty-four thousand
camphor seed planted, and is making
preparations to plant a few th
more. He makes a bed five feet
hilled up to about six inches dee
thoroughly wets; then taking a
|x4 inches, long enough to reach
the bed, he sets to work to .akth
furrows, as you might call t l-
board is set upon it- edge 6 the
bed and is struck several smart blows
for the purpose of driving it about one
and a quarter inches deep, it being re-
moved after it has served its purpose
and the next furrow made in a like man-
ner, parallel with the other and about
three inches.
The seed are then dropped about an
inch apart in tlh furrow, and the board
is again inserted and struck several
times, for the purpose of breaking the
thick and pulpy hull that surround the
see4 proper. The board is removed and
the furrows thoroughly watered again.
Mr. Butler states that even in rainy
weather he waters the seed-then the
board is again brought into play by
setting it on edge, as before, only it is
placed outside the furrow and held in
a slanting position,, being streuk hard
enough to force the earth into the fur-
row and to cover up the seed. The
whole is again watered, in fact, flood-
ed; the edges of the bed being raised
to hold the water on bed. Then about
half an inch of earth is put over the
entire bed and the whole leveled off,
completing the planting.
After the seeds have sprouted and
the plants are about eight inches high,
they are reset in rows a foot apart, and
are kept thus until they are needed to
set out in a grove or yard, as the case
may be. These trees, to get an result
from the operation, should be set out in
the autumn or winter, as at that time
the sap is in the roots, and the tree is
not growing to any extent
In getting the material from the tree
from which to distill the camphor. men
go down one side of a grove abd clip
the leaves and small twigs, taking them
to the vats where the camphor is dis-
tilled from them. Only one skide of the
trees are clipped, the men going the en-
tire length of the grove, ant returning
up the other side. By the time they ar-
rive from whence they started the side
clipped a few days before has put out
new leaves and twigs and can bo again
clip, thus furnishing a good supply all
the time.
For the benefit of those who may be
skeptical of the forgoing, we take De-
ure in giving Mr. Butler's proceed for
extracting the crystalised camphor.
Having no still or equipment, he peo-
cured an old iron washpet and fla it
nearly full of water, brought it to a
boil. Having gathered a small almm t
of leaves and twigs, he threw these l-.
to the boiling water and covered the
top of the put with am old piece ot lar-
lap, or, what is ommonly kin as a
croaker sack. Regulating his *r so as
to boil the leaves and tw a slowly, the
steam penetrated throg the burlap,


leaving a depositofterystamied camphor
on the under side of it Mr. Butler
sent a ft y a this to Washngton,
and on bi was fnd to

NRS. DUNCAN LIBERATED.


She Killed Her Brother-Ia-Law Last
August, *t Did It in Defense
Of er tusbamnd.
A very interesting murder case was
disposed of by Judge Meginniss on Sat-
urday.
On the 29th of August, last, James
Duncan was killed by Vi Duncan, his
sister-in-law.
On the following day she was ad-
judged insane and committed to the
as yum.
On Friday last she was discharged,
being relieved of her dementia, and it
wa decided to hold her commitment
al at once.
The evidence showed that James Dun-
can, the man killed, had precipitated a
quarrel with his brother, Will Duncan,
that he had choked him into insensibil-
ity, and the wife wanting to protect the
li of her husband fired the fatal shot.
Her attorneys set up a plea of defense
in the interest of her husband, and so
well was the plea sustained that Judge
Meginniss promptly discharged her.
College Notes.
In addition to the five attractions
guaranteed to holders of season tickets
in the Lyceum course, Mr. Murphree
authorizes the announcement of two
entertainments to be given by the music
faculty of the college. The first of
these will be a general concert by the
faculty ; the second. Enoch Arden, read
by Miss Dalzell to an accompaniment of
music. There will be no additional ex-
pense attached to th(se concerts for
the holders of season tickets.
Miss Dalzell, who is Professor of Ex-
pression and Physical Culture at tl e
College, will address the Southern
Educational Ass:ociation,which convenes
in Atlanta, Ga., on the 29th of Decem-
ber.
Dean Heathwole will attend the Es-
cambia County Teachers' As;so'ciation,
to be held in Pensacola on th 1sth> and
19th of December.
Miss Mary Apthrop, the efficient li.
irarian of the college, is scheduled for
a er entitled "What a Reference
Li Means to College Students." to
be before the Florida Educational
&AJ tion, convening at Gainesville on
hath of December. President Mur-
has been requested to respond to
ae address of welcome on the same oc-
casion.
A vesper service will be given at the
college chapel.on the 3rd, Sunday after-
noon in December. TIhe music faculty
will be assisted by the Tallahassee Mu-
seal Club.
Music lovers are eagerly looking for-
ward to M is Tarbet's organ recital at
the chapel on the evening of December
4th.
President Murphree has every encour-
agement to expect a large increase in
the enrollment during tne approaching
second term of the College year. The
numberof names already reaches nearly
two hundred.
Putting Them BacH.
A local Republican said to aTallahas-
see Democrat this week:
"Just see the hundreds of thousands
the Republicans are giving jobs and
putting back to work."
"They ought to, dryly replied the
Democrat, fop they took their jobs
away from them. Now the election is
over, they ought to be put back to
work!"
Two Batches of Biscuits.
The Golden Age tells the following
story:
"At breakfast the biscuits were rath-
er harder than they should have been,
and Jones growled out:
"I wishI were an ostrich. Maybe I
could eat these biscuits and live after-
wards."
"I wish you were," said Mrs. Jones.
"Maybe then I'd get a few feathers for
m hat."
This reminds us of another story:
A young husband came home and
found his bride of a few weeks min tears.
"What's the matter, my dear?" he
asked.
"On," she said, "the dog has eaten
the biscuit! '
"Why, never mind my dear he re-
plied soothingly, "I'11 get you another
dog."

trees can be seen. They will grow on
any kind of soil, without any exception,
and, so far as known, from years of in-
vestigaton, no kind of insect or enemy

Get some leaves and twigs and make
a personal investigation of the subject.
Distill camphor on your cook stove and
when you return North, and in later
years hear of the great industry in
Florida, point with pride at the small
jar on your mantle and tell your friends
that you spent the winter in Florida;

fad, the camphor Industry was

tries that t State is th mother of.


Readers of Mme. Warner's book,
"The Rejuvenation of Aunt Mary," at-
tended the presentation of L. S. Sire's
comedy at Munro's Opera House last
Friday night with pleasureable anticipa-
tions. But even to them the fulfillment
far surpassed the expectation.
May Robson was inimitable. She held
the sustained interest of her audience
without a break, leading them from
laughter to tears with the most bewild-
ering rapidity. Tallahassee is seldom
visited by so great an artist, and our
citizens showed their appreciation of
Miss Robson's exceptional talent by giv-
ing her a packed house.

A Coinddence

Most Singular.

A Carrabelle Man Finds His Counter-
part in Suffering In City
Of Atlanta.
The Atlanta Constitution of recent
date contained the following:
One of the most singular coincidences
ever recorded in the experience of the
medical world happened yesterday when
two men, each living in a separate state
came to Atlanta to be operated upon
for the same injury to the same portion
of the kbdy at exactly the same time.
The two men figuring in this story are
J. F. Brown, of Carrabelle, F'la., and
E A. Thompson, of Suite, N. C. Sev-
eral days ago Mr. Brown was struck in
the eye with a piece of steel which
caused him so much alarm and pain that
he came to Atlanta Wednesday morn-
ing and had a well-known oculist exam-
ine the wound Mr. Thompson sustained
a similar injury at almost the same
time, and came to Atlanta Wednesday
morning, at the same time for the same
purpose.
Both men, with their heads tied up in
bandages, stopped at the same board,
ing house, at 152 <'ourtlan, street-
owned by Mrs. Livaey. In the mean-
while they had never seen or heard of
one another.
They both unknowingly arrived at the
office of the eye specialist at almost the
same time, Mr. Brown arriving a little
earlier than Mr. Thompson. While the
eye of the former was being ex mined,
in walked Mr. Thompson, and whose
examination immediately followed that
of Mr. Brown. The oculist announced
to each of the two injured men that it
was necessary that the injured eyes be
removed.
The operation was performed in the
Atlanta College of Physicians and Sur-
geons yesterday, the same physicians
working on both patients. They were
given the anaesthetic at the same time,
and the physicians by this time had be-
come aware of the coincidence in the
two cases, and decided to make sepa-
rate inquiries among the two men, just
to see if any other of their experiences
coincided.
As they were coming from under the
anaesthetic influence, both men, in an-
swering the physicians, said that they
had been married twice; that they were
members of the Baptist church, and
that they both sarg.
After the operation was completed,
the Grady ambulance was called. Mr.
Thompson and Mr. Brown were both
placed in it, and carried to their board-
ing house on Courtland street. There
they were placed in separate beds in the
same room, and given similar instruc-
tions in regard to their recovery.
It is said that Mr. Thompson and Mr.
Brown have become good friends since
their misfortunes have become known
to each other. Up to the time they ar-
rived in Atlanta, they had never seen
or heard of each other before.

Notes About Claude.
The True Democrat finds the enclosed
clippings in a couple of itsexchanges:
It is said that Claude L'Engle has in
view the starting of a paper at Quincy.
We surmise that when D'Engle makes
another venture at publishing a paper
he will select a larger field than the
tobacco town affords. However, he
may go where he can have the use of
plenty of smoke The Pensacola News
quotes as rumored that Claude L'Engle
will establish a newspaper in Quincy,
but discredits the rumor. We "reckon
Quincy is a "right smart" place, but
we don't think it's big enough for
Claude. We opine it will be Jackson-
ville for isn't, when he shakes the red
clay of the Tallahassee streets from his

Dr. Grant is Grateful.
I wish to say through The True Dem-
ocrat to those kind christian friends who
came to see me through my severe ill-
ness last week, that I do return to them
my heart's gratitude for their aid and
assistance. The kindest love and grat-
itude I extend to them, and do feel that
through their prayers the good Lord
has raised me up once more upon my
feet. With the kindest love of myself
and my dear sister. DR. J. J. GRANT.

Goed Roads For Leon County.
Leon county is coming to the fore on
the good roads question. On account
of the steepness of the hills all through
the county continuous work is needed
in order to keep the roads in even pas-
sable condition, and heretofore the
county has not had either sufficient ma-
chinery or force of workmen to do the
work required. Now, however, the com-
missioners have added several men to
the force, and bought more mules and
machinery.. They have new and up-to-
date gradere-and levelers, and have se-
cured the seryie$s of Mr. George Avbr-
itt, an experienced road maker, to take
charge of the building of now redsand
the repairing of old ones. Mr. Averits

My Dear Mr. Rawls-I am m receipt

When you were here I noticed that
Iu were very proud of the Crystal
Pharmacy, and at that time thought it
probably was a neat store, but to my
amazement when I count up five or six
silent salesman cases on a side it soon
dispels my thoughts and I am greatly
at your having courage
Sput so much money in a drug

I large assortment of goods. Had

Your bank building certainly is a

are all proud of it.

crat Subscribers.


The Greatest Premium of the Age.


The Tension Spring attachment does away with resharpen-
ing entirely and enables the user to set the tension on the
rivet so that any kind of material may be cut with perfect
ease, without tiring the hand. The Tension Spring takes up
all wear on the rivet, making the SHEARS practically IN-
DEITRUCTIBLE. A simple turn of the little thumb-screw
shown in the engraving, tightens up the blades as closely as
may be desired. Any woman who has had the exasperating
experiencee of trying to use a dull pair of shears can readily
appreciate the value of the new invention WHICH KEEPS
THIS PAIR OF SHEARS ALWAYS sharp and in perfect
cutting condition. No matter how many pairs of shears or
scissors you may have around the house, you need this pair
with the Tension Spring, and when you get and use it once,
you will use it in preference to any other you may have.
These SHEARS are perfectly finished and heavily nickel
plated eight inches in length.
We Guarantee
the quality of the material and workmanship in this pair of
SHEARS to be first-class, that the Tension Spring device
doubles the usefulness of the SHEARS and does away with
the need of resharpening, and furthermore, our Guarantee
Certificate accompanies every pair, agreeing "that if this
pair of shears BREAKS or in any way becomes defective
within FIVE YEARS from date of purchase it will be re-
placed with a NEW pair without cost."

bent a trifle In communicating the
news to his personal attendant.

like to go with me around the world?'
"Do we go from east to west, sir?"
asked the man.
"Yes."
"And we lose a day going that way,
do we not, sir?'
"We do."
"Then, sir, I should like very much
to go. It would give me a day off."-

IsbAtery. I used those goods in con-
nection with cotton-seed meal ina the
propertloss of 1.000 pounds of lasP-
r1o-ALKAA to 8,000 pounds of cotton-
seed meal per aere, and think this is
the right proportion, as the growth
was entirely satisfactory, as well a
the burn, texture and all the other prop.
*rtles that a first-claa, shade-rown
crop should have.
I feel sure that you have at last
struck the proper formula and one
that "fully supplies a long-felt want,
and, as loug as I grow shade tobacco
and you hold the goods up to the pres-
et standard. I shall give you my
busMes for myself, tenant and cuo-
toaers.
As a further advantage that this
P3oarvO-ALKAz has over all other
formulas that contain potash ls that
the other goods leach all the plantV
food out of the land, while this one
(Phopho-Alkall) adds to the proper-
tUe and also produces a tobacco that
burns perfectly, which is all the use
that potash is to the tobacco.
Reapectfully,

GOrxTumsx-The burn, color, texture
and weight came up to all of my ex-
pectations, and In fact were superior
to any crop I have heretofore made of
shaded tobacco. The weight per acre
was fully one-third more than where
I used other fertilizers and amounted
fully to 1,450 pounds per acre.
I have nine (9)' foot shades and the
tobacco grew through the top slats
after it.had been topped. The leaves
ran from twelve (12) to twenty-four
(24) inches In length. I counted as
many as thirty-four (34) leaves to the
stalk. I used your PHOaPHO-ALKAU On
virgin soil, and of course there had
never been previous applications of
other fertilizers. 1 planted this to-
baeo, grown with your goods. fuUl
two weeks after planting the balsane
of my e op made with other fertillarU
and it matured at the same time. 'Te
growth up to harvesting w"a very unl-
form. .. Yours truly.

Smyrna Figs.
Smyrna figs ripen by the beginning
of August. They are not picked, but
when they reach a certain maturity
they begin to dry, and consequetly
they drop on the ground. In the morn-
Ing everybody on the pleotatoDns goes
around with buckets gathering the
rult, which they carry to a certain
place where the ground t covered
with dry leaves and straw (sergel)
md on which they spread the t fruit,
exposing It to the sun, allowing It to
remain there from two to three dQ.
It takes about three days to dry1 tO
fg If north winds prevail, as ta aW-
mosphere is then very dry. If, hoew
ever, westerly winds are blow 7 L
which means heavy dew at nalght,
trult must remain exposed to tb sun
rom five to seven days. This tIs a
dangerous period, as rain or even a
bower might ruin hundreds of tons of
ult lying on the ground. Heavy dews
sometimes are just as detrimental.

owed by north winds in August, and
rom then on an occasional west wind
very five or six days.


Not a Nursery.
"Before I got this Job I had no Idea
so many funny things happened on
street cars," said a new conductor, ac-
cording to the Denver Post. "Every
day I see and hear things that are
amusing. For instance, a woman with
a baby about two years old boarded
my car and rode downtown. When we
reached Fifteenth and California she
rose to get off. The baby was tucked
snugly In the corner of the seat. The
woman hesitated In the aisle. 'Say,'
she said to me, 'I'd like to ask a favot
of you.'
'What Is It?' I asked.
'I've got some shopping to do,' she
said. 'Would you please take baby
around a trip with you? I don't want
him with me. I'll be back when you
return to this corner and take him.'
"'Madam.' I replied, 'I can't take
care of your baby. Suppose he should
get to crying, as he undoubtedly
would?
'Well, goodness me,' she said, 'you
could slap him, couldn't your "

A STRANGE SENTENCE.
Punishment For Murder That Was
More Cruel Than Death.
In 1801 a man died in the Catskills
who had been condemned by one of
the strangest sentences on record.
Ralph Sutherland was born in 1701 and
llved In a stone bouse near Leeds. He
was a man of violent temper and mo-
rose dispotion, shunned by his neigh-
bors -d generally disliked. Not be-
lag abi to get an American servant.
be lapUtad q Scotchwoman, and. ac-
oerdinut the uaages of the times, vir-
tiily 1l her In boadage until her
pusaaW meey had been refunded.
Unable to e lure any longer the
agg tqaper of her master, the gui
as away. Immediately upon discov.
sift her absese the man set off tn
a. amry chae upon his horse and
se overtook bar. The poor woman
~r rehsebd the boose alive, and
Selberla was ladited and arrested
l to ehare t murder.
At the t l be tried to prove that
h b ho-se ha tk- fright, run away.
pitched NM t of the saddle and
dasbed tbe d to death upon the
rocks, but jw dd not accept the
defense, and Satbwelad was sentenced
to die upon t usa l.
Then came lei of the insuf-
cency otf evidence* and
the effort tImuential relatives.
These so .Vi/m the court that
the judge the s motence of
death uns prtaear should be
ninety-nlo fei L
It was that the culprit
should be re oat en his own recog-
nizance and that, pending the final ex-
ecution of hli sentence, be should keep
a hangman's oose about hls oeck and
show himself before the Judges of
Catskill once a year to prove that be
wore his hMdge o( latamy and kept
his crime madi. It was a more
cruel deig '-haa tdo sentence of Im-
mediate de weeM bve een, but
It was tAbt is harmony with the
spirit of thetiresm.
Thus Ralph S therland lived. He al-
ways Uved alom. He seldom spoke.
His rough, amperlou manner bad
gone. Yea followed years. At eaeb
session the court thi broken man
came baeef the bar of Justlce and si.
lently showed thea meO that edreled

over a new march, and the lady on the

rolled forth the air fortissimo. The
composer rushed distractedly Into his
garden to his wife and, tearing his
hair in anguish, cried out:
"My dear. I give It up! I thought I
had composed an original tune. but it
must be a delusion, for my grand

It-is only n reminiscence and is al-

They Sat Down.
One night nt n theater some scenery
took fire, and a very |perceptible odor
of burning alarmed the spectators. A
panic seemed to be Imminent when an
actor appeared on the stage.
"Ladles and gentlemen," he said,
"compose yourselves. There Is no
danger."
The audience did not seem reas-
sured.
"Ladles and gentlemen," continued
the comedian, rising to the necessity
of the occaslon-"confound It all-do
you think it there was any danger I'd
be here?'
The panic collapsed.
England's Mether Chureh.
The oldest frequented church in
England is probably Bt Martin's, at
Canterbury, and you may call it the
mother church of England. Walk up
from the outskirts of the city and you
will pass the font which gave baptism
to King Ethelbert 1,800 years ago. The
font still stands, the worshipers still
mount the slope, and one considers
whether it was Augustine or Bertha
who dragged the king and husband to
that font.-London Chronicle.

AN INEXPENSIVE ICEHOUSE.
No Reason Why the Farmer Should Be
Without It.
An icehouse nnd cool room may be
roust ructed as follows: Excavate a
half cellar in a iperfectly dry place,
from which the surface slopes (or may
be made to slope) In nil directions. so
as to prevent danger ,of moisture from
want of drainage. A stone or brick
wall Is built nround this nud laid In
hydraulle' ('nement. The floor is ce-
mented. A franmet or other building Is
built upon this basement to contain
the Ice. Twelve feet square will be
large enough for a moderate sized fam-


IoG. L-ICEBOUSl AND COOL BOOM.
ily, as an icehouse of that size will
hold about twenty loads or tons of ice.
The main point Is the division be-
tween the icehouse and the room be-
low It. This must be perfectly air
tight and a moderately good conductor
of beat. The floor may be laid in the
following manner:
Beams of sufficient strength are laid
across and the ends well bedded in ce-
ment. A floor of zine sheets is then
laid upon the beams. the sheets wing
closely nailed to the ben in 11p,'in strips
of rubber sheeting to make the joints
water and air tight. The beams should
be dressed smoothly. The zinc sheets
are bent, as shown in the illustration
(Fig. '2. This is for tihe purpose of
causing the moisture, which will con-
dense upon the underside of this ceil-
ing. to flow downward to the lower
angle, where It will drip. The drip Is
caught In the little gutters of zinc'
shown In the figure attached to the
ceiling and is carried off by n propi'r
drain. With this water will also be
carried off much of the Inupurity of
the atmosphere, and if very little ven-
tilation is given thern will fle little
condensation and the air will leI kept
dry. This polut must ,fe well attended
to. as the danger of excessive ventila-
tion is very great. The beams and
zinc ceiling should be painted with
white paint-lead and oil.
Above the zine ceiling a thin layer of
dry, fresh sawdust should be laid
smoothly, and a floor of matched pine
boards should be laid upon that and
thoroughly counted with melted pitch.
This floor should slope a little to one
corner so as to draw the waste water
from the ice there, and an 8 trap drain
should be laid from that to carry off
the water Into the drain abshove men-
tioned. The usual layer of sawdust is
laid upon this floor to prevent too rap-
id conveyance of bent from below to
the ice above. Small double windows

range because thete the greatest
difference in the yield of product at
this season. In the winter all hops an
corn fed and yield muoauniform quan-
titles of product. In summer many
are grassers that make low yields and'
of Inferior quality to corn fed bogs.
A 200 pound bog that dressed 80 per
cent yields 100 pounds, one that dreesa
es 75 per cent yields 150 pounds, and
one that dresses 70 per cent yields
only 140 pounds, an enormous differ
ence In a carload of bogs, which the
buyer makes allowance for in buying
them on foot. As a rule, of late the
best hogs have been the cheapest on
the hooks at the top of the market be-
cause they have yielded so much more
product than the others, which looked
cheaper to the inexperienced observer.
As to the breed that killers like best,
probably more would answer Berk-
shire than any other breed. But hogs
are what killers want. and the kind
they want will top the market, wheth-
er black, white, redor spotted.

The Manure Spreader.
There are not many farm Imple-
ments that will pay for themselves
more quickly than a manure spreader.
It saves labor, but that Is not the big
part of the profit. Somp men must
hesitate about a purchase tf It man
only a saving of labor. The use of
the spreader means a great Inaesnae In
the efficiency of the farm tply of
manure. Some men cannot this
point. They say that they t the '
manure on the land and th is all
that is necessary. But it isn't Ms.-
nure gives life to a soil even when
the application is light, and It is poor
policy to give one spot more the Sis
needed while another spot l left
or to make a heavy application to
acre and leave another acre wMt
manure. We now know that it pays
to make the manure go over a rela-
tively large acreage. Director Thorne
of the Ohio station has said that eight
loads of manure per acre applied with
a spreader have about as great at-
clency as twelve loads put on roughly
with a fork. Every foot gets a little of i
the material, and the effect is seen In I
the sod that follows or the sod to I
which the manure Is applied. Land
should not have a heavy dressing of
manure when other land In the farm t
needs manure. Make the application *
light and even, and only Ia spreader r
can do the work well. In the interest
of better sods. which are the life oef
soil, n(d to the efficiency of the
nure by using a spreader. Some fa#
Ing communities have learned this t
son thoroughly well, while others ha~e
barely awakened to It.


Potatomatoes.
In grafting the tomato on tl-., potato
or the potato on tomato, or in rMaking
any other graft of similar herbaceous
plants, the simpler methods are pre-
ferred. The saddle gra!t and splice
graft are the ones nost commonly
used. The splice graft is made by
simply cutting the scions a smooth
slanting cut. The stock is cut In the
same way, and the two members are
tied together with their faces joined.
In order to get the best results it Is
desirable to have the grafts made of
rather tender shoots, such as have
only partially hardened. In order to
get a proper union with this sort of
tissue It Is necessary that the cut be
made with a very sharp knife, prefer-
ably with a razor. The two parts are
then rather tenderly joined together,
using very soft cloth bandages or

should be used In the cool chamber be- |
low to prevent access of heat from the |
outside, and they should be fitted air
tight. Ventilation should be provided
for by means of a wooden pipe with a
elide, by which the opening can be
regulated. By carefully regulating the
ventilation the air may be kept dry.
Market hogs.
What kind of hog will bring the
most money L. the market, and what -pl,
breed will make the best market hog? moistened raff It desirable.f
These are quest ons hard to answer moitened raa. It is desrafted plant
definitely. Markets vary as to the thermore, to cover the grafted plant

Captain Henry Crutcher, the special
Florida agent of this fertilizer company,
who, by the way, is one of the mast ex-
pert and painstaking fertilizer men in
the entire South has been for the past
three years making the most minute in-
veatigation of the tobacco industry ia
Gededen and Leon counties, FloridaZ
In 1907 he canvassed the tobacco grow-
leg sections of these counties, vuisting
practically all of the leading, and many
of the smaller growers in person not
eadeavoring to makesales, but with the
sole view of obtaining data. He ascer-
tained more correctly than was ever be-
fore known, the total number of acres
pl d in both shade and sm n grown
obaoco, as well as the mode of proce-
dure in making the eope from the
planting of the seed beds, to the har-
vesting, hearing, and packing. He as-
eertained that there was quite a diver-
aity of opinion regarding the kinds and
qoantt of fertiisers used, and the
nodes of application. Ia fact many ex.
mi a opinion that there was a
sreat ofcertainingredients used,
mad a eusequent waste of money. This
was not as much objected to, however,
Siace of the fact that the tobacco
made on the sueedidg crop (not yet
_loated), had been contracted for at
he most satisfactory prices to the
growers.
Captain Crutcher, however, in addi-
ion to his painstaking tendency, is not
a believer in squandering time, mate-
rial& a wesy, and knew full well-
toor knowledge on general results
