Funeral of Elder Bouck.
The funeral of Elder J. S. Bouck oc
curred at the Methodist church last
Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock It was
under the auspices of the Odd Fellows
who had charge of the arrangements
at the house and conducted the funeral
ceremony at the grave. A delegation
of Masons representing Fraternal lodge
of Princeton attended the funeral in a
body. Many friends of the deceased
were present at the funeral to pay their
last respects to all that was mortal of
the aged minister and old settler It
was the wish of the deceased that Pre
siding Elder Forbes should preach the
funeral sermon, but Mr. Forbes was
unable to attend, and the funeral ser
vice at the church was conducted by
Revs. Gratz and Moxie. Music was
furnished by a special choir. Rev.
Moxie read from the scriptures and
the prayer was offered by Rev. Gratz,
who also delivered a short sermon.
Rev. Gratz read a very touching letter
from Rev. J. F. Chaffee, of Pasadena,
Cal., who years ago was presiding elder
of the M. E. conference and who ason
signed Elder Bouck to his Princeton
appointment. Mr. Chaffee's letter was
a beautiful tribute to Elder Bouck's
faithfulness, fidelity and zeal in his
At the grave the burial service of
the Odd Fellows was read, and the
mortal career of J. S. Bouck was closed
forever. The pall bearers were Aug.
Henschell, Ernest Byers, E. F. Doug
lass, Jas. McKenzie, Chas. Thompson
and John Cameron.
Iowa to Feed Lots of Cattle.
Present indications are that an un
precedented number of cattle will be
fed in Iowa this year. This is due to
the fact that frosts have injured the
crop of corn and that there will be an
extraordinary amount of soft and un
marketable corn that will be suitable
only for feeding purposes. Farmers
who heretofore have sold the bulk of
their crop are buying cattle, and re
ports received by their city correspond
ents from country banks are to the
effect that there is an unprecedented
demand for money with which to buy
stock cattle and feeders. Reports gath
ered through the railroads as to the
destination and meaning of unusually
heavy shipments of cattle into the state
are that they are being taken into the
country by farmers for feeding soft
corn. Farmers are putting all the
money they can get hold of into light
cattle, and the markets through which
the bulk of the supplies are secured
are commencing to show the effects
of the extraordinary demand.Des

Results of Experiments Made by Experi
ment Station at Grand Rapids.
The experiment farm at Grand Ra
pids is testing a great number of va
rieties of potatoes to determine their
relative yield and market value. The
work is carried on with much care.
The varieties are planted in rows of
equal length and an equal number of
piece&of equal weight is planted of each
kind. In addition, a standard kind is
selected, and planted in every seventh
row. The variation in yield of this
kind is taken as an indication of the
variation in the soil, and the yields are
corrected to eliminate this inequality.
The resulting comparison is quite ac
curate and in three to five years the
results obtained must be of great value
to potato growers. A cooking test
made of each variety to determine
quality and flavorand the shape
size are noted, as affecting the market
This season, 68 varieties were tested.
They were planted in new ground
that had been plowed the previous
spring and sown to oats which were
pastured off by sheep. The ground
was spring plowed and the potatoes
furrowed in and covered with a har
row. They were planted in rows three
feet apart.singie pieces placed 15 inches
apart in row, the amount of
sown being 15 bushels per acre
total yield of the plot planted to vari
eties was 11 bushels on 33 acres or
^e. This represents
the average yield of the varieties. The
individual yields ranged from 561 bush
els to 183 bush i per acre. With so
many kinds, it is necessary to continue
test a year or two longer before
definite results can be published. But
several kinds promise well, among
which are Prize Taker, yield561 bushels
and white, late good quality. Carmen,
No. 1, yield 506 bushels, white, blocky,
medium early, good flavor. Early
Michigan, yield 514 bushels white, ob
long, quality fair, medium early. Oth
ers are Dakota Red, Uncle Sam, State
of Maine, Delaware, Northern Spy and
Rose No. 9
The station is desirous of obtaining
information from settlers of the vari
eties grown by them and the results
obtained. Persons growing varieties
of whose name and identity and source
they are sure, or originating seedlings,
may have them tested with other vari
eties by sending 10 lbs. of selected
seed potatoes to the Experiment Farm,
Grand Rapids. Freight or express will
be paid by the Station. The name of
variety, and of shipper should be sent
attached to the shipment.

Last Sunday at noon occurred the
wedding of Otto M. Radeke and Miss
Almina E. Jones, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. R. E. Jones. The wedding was
performed at the home of the bride in
the presence of the immediate relatives

during the wedding ceremony by Lee
Jones and Miss Emma Radeke, and as
the wedding march was played the
bridal party took its place beneath a
beautifully decorated arch where the
marriage ceremony took place.
After the ceremony a sumptuous wed
ding dinner was served. Many beauti
ful and useful presents were presented
to bride and groom and their many
friends wish them their full portion of
wedded bliss and a long and happy
future. Mr. and Mrs. Radeke will
commence housekeeping in rooms at
the home of the bride's parents.

A Lively Sermon.
A minister in an Iowa town preached
a brief but beautiful sermon the other
day. Here it is: "A word to you all.
Post mortem praises and love are in
the air. People kiss their dead that
never stoop to kiss their living they
hover over their caskets in hysteric
sobs, but fail to throw their arms
around their loved ones who are fight
ing the stern battles of life. A word
of cheer to a struggling soul in life is
worth more than the roses of Christen
dom pilling high on a casket cover.
The dead cannot smell the flowers, but
the living can, therefore scatter them
broadly in their pathway, and pick out
the thorns before it is too late Pres
The Highest Tet Recorded.
Two German balloonists ascended
from Berlin to a height of 33,000 feet
without losing conciousness. A greater
height was reached by two other bal
loonists but they lost consciousness and
no actual record after passing that
altitude was kept. The strain under
which the scientists are working at
such an altitude is enormous and they
need golden grain belt beer to relieve
it. Pure, refreshing and invigorating,
this beer rests and quiets the nerves,
inducing a peaceful sleep. Order of

THE PRINCETON TTSTIOHl THUBSDAY, OCTOBER 23,
Salt Lake City folks have lately 'had
among them an attractive, refined and
Intelligent palmist. He arrived a
couple of months ago and opened an
office, -where flaring signs proclaimed
him the wonder of the age. was
Boon doing a rushing business, telling
mining men when stocks were going 5:
up, advising women in affairs of the
heart, etc. For this a moderate rec
ompense was asked and freely paid by
the patrons. To onlookers business
seemed to be increasing, but when the
time for opening the office came one
morning the professor of palmistry did
not appear. The public then learned
for the first time that he was the
originator and proprietor of a brand
new swindle. He represented to each
of his patrons that if they would give
him a twenty dollar goldpiece he
would magnetize it so that they would
have power to read the future, when
they consulted the goldpiece, just as
he read it in the palm. They were
to call and receive their magnetized
goldpieces the day on which the palm
specialist failed to arrive. They called,
but they went away without their gold
and with* a conviction that the mag
netic influence between the professor's
fingers and the goldpieces was really
marvelous. The Salt Lake folks do
not now take kindly to palmists, no
matter how refined and intelligent.
Ethics and Dirt Shoveling.
A Missouri clergyman is spending his
vacation with a construction gang that
is building a roadbed for a railroad.
He says that his object in thus spend
ing his vacation is to mingle with the
men and get thoroughly in touch with
the laboring classes with a view to an
ethical study therein. He thinks that
a year's practical reading would not
compare with the benefit to be secured
in his six weeks' actual close touch.
Besides, he is hardening his muscle,
toning up his system and in other ways
preparing himself physically for his
labor in the pulpit and out. The plan
is a good one and to be recommended
to other brain workers, although six
weeks of it would be too much of a
dose for most of those who labor with
the brain rather than with the hands.
The physical labor need not be ex
actly that chosen by the worthy rev
erend. This is the season of the year
when many farmers are looking for
hands, and it is certain that few occu
pations offer such attractions to a
townsman as helping to till the soil.
Contact with the good, green earth and
with the hard realities of physical
labor is a good thing for everybody.
At eighty-six, Russell Sage declares
that he "feels as spry as a colt" and
that in all his long life he has found
no better way of passing time tan by
putting in a full day's work. "Work
has become a habit with me and I
enjoy it," says "Uncle" Russell. "Hab
its formed early in life are hard to
break off. The habit of industry I
have had since my youth. My health
is good, and I like work, and there
fore it becomes an amusement to me.
You see, I am indulging my tastes
When I continue work. I am in excel
lent health and spirits. I have no idea
of retiring from business. I hope to
engage in business for many years to
come." Perhaps you may find a moral
in this, perhaps not. At least here is a
bit of personal testimony which should
interest the thinking man.
