These gentlemen , Inspected the
campus, building ' and departments,
and partook of a seven course dinner
prepared and served by one division of
the cooking class under the direction
of M1ss Ida Burrell, Instructor In do
mestic science.. The many expres
sions of satisfaction with the manage
ment and progress of the Institution
were very gratifying to President Al
len who has labored hard and un-
ceaslnglg to build Lincoln Institute up
as a great Institution of learning, that,
Irrespective of race or color, shall be
second to none of Its kind or class.
The Lincoln Tigers under the man
ngement of their skillful coach, Pro
fessor West, left for Nashville amid
the enthusiastic cheers of faculty and
students; and dispatches from the
scene of action declare victory for the
Tigers. Hurrah for Lincoln Tigers!!

Mr. Groves always interests his audi

many will be present on this occasion
and help to demonstrate by the furcn
products which they may exhibit that,
as a people, we are alive to the value
of agricultural pursuits. The Proges

made a very interesting talk con

JUDGE EDGAR GUINOTTE
For Probate Judge.
It Is a pleasure for us to recom
mend Judge Gulnotte to the public
us the logical candidate for Probate
Judge. He ia a man of unquestioned
character and high reputation.
Many men. In their private lives,
win love and esteem, but few punllc
officials niche themselves in the
hearts of the people, Inspiring a feel
Ing that takes no -account of party
or partisanship. Such an one Is Judge
Edgaj- Gulnott Probate Judge. 'The
place Is one t' at calls for more than
mere learning, ripe knowledge, ju
dlcal dlspasrl n and that sort of
thing, for a Probate Judge deals with
humanity In t-o raw, and sustains the
most sacred .fiduciary relations to the
widow and the orphan. Passionately
Just, tender of heart as a child, and
generously sympathetic, he hns saved
many a small estate from despoil
ment, and safeguarded hundreds of
blaok-gowned women and children. It
Is the commonest sort of thing one
that no longer occasions comment-
for him to r"use the fees due him
from the administration of such es
tates where the bereaved ones have
need of everr cent. Little surprise
then, that h Is loved and honored

KANSAS CITY. MO., THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 1, I'JOG.
The university forum wag favored
with one of its best lectures thus far,
Prof. O. K. Grlshara, principal, of the
Kansas City High scchool addressed
the forum on "The Color Question"
not the color of the races, but the col
or question as seen In the rainbow. It
was illustrated throughout and hence
elicited the very highest commenda
tion. The science department was more
than pleased because of the simple
and . practical way In which many
things were explained.
Rev. O. A. Griffith, Prof. McCarthy
of the Kansas City University, Rlshpp
Grant and Dr. H. B. Parks made short
talks following the lecture.
The Bishop suggested, that when a
good loc.turo had been delivered that
there should be no lengthy discussion
Dr. Vernon wns present and intro

HORSE KICKING IN STALL.
Device by Which He May Be Ren
The kicking horse Is not only dan
gerous but destructive, but the way to
control him Is a perplexing problem
sometimes. A South Dakota corre
spondent of the Prairie Farmor sug
gests a device for controlling such ani
mal. If he kicks with only one foot place
aj strong surcinglo about him and at
It put in a strong ring. Fasten a strong
foot strap below the fetlock Joint C
on the foot with which he kicks. Then
run a rope from ring C through ring
B to a rlug fastened to the opposite
V Device for Kicking Horse,

will Jork this front foot under him. If
he kicks with both hind feet run a
ropo from one hind foot up through
the ring It, down through ling O and
back through ring II to C, and fasten
.m the other hind foot. Then when he
lileks with both feet he will Jerk this
one foot from under him, which leaven
him standing on one foot. This will
soon get him out of the notion or kick
ing. Building a Breed.
The usual method of starting a
breed of live stock is te select two
or more unusually good animals from
a group that has been developed In
a certain direction by means of better
food, better environment nnd careful
selection from a' greater number. No
breed Is ever started If the animal
that can ho used are not better than
the same breed of animals In another
locality. At the beginning this work
Is carried on by a few men, somo
tlmcs by one. In-breeding has to bo
practiced for generations till certain
characteristics are fixed In tho mil
mals. The In-brcedlng Is Intensified
by constantly eliminating those ani
mals not of the desired type.
Feeding the Pig.
It does not follow because a hungry
pig will gulp down almost any kind
of slop, thnt any kind Is good enough
for him. Mnke tho slop strong enough
to give the pig a well rounded form
that will stay with him all of the
time, not the form that Is seen Just
after leaving the trough.
The Profitable Pig.
Vndor average conditions with tho
farmer, there is very lit t lo profit In
feeding pigs after they reach a weight
of 2.10 pounds. Tho most pork Is made
with the least feed on young pi;s.

FEEDING AND SELLING MULES.
How They Should Be Dealt With to
Get the Best Results.
The southerner reipilres rat mules,
tho fatter tho better. Flesh catches
tho planter's eye. Sleek-coated ani
mals are also In dcnuiiut. lu size, the
cotton mule ranges from the 1 1 hand
donkey to the 1G.2 band rami mule.
Mare mules are given the preference
In the south, but north, east or west
Ihls Is not so. The wise feeder will
keep these fads In view when buying
young or work mules. The rough,
leggy animal should he avoided. Such
are mean feeders and seldom fatten.
This Is also true or colls. It Is possi
ble, says Orange .liidil Farmer, to (ell
with reasonable rertaluty which colts
will feed out Well and which will not.
Tho colt that keeps nearly fat on ordi
nary feed and with ordinary care can
be depended on, while the one that is
stunted, rough and llilu is a doubtful
reeder. Some of our feeders raise
their own Ht-iek mules, buying colts
and yearlings, Iheii pasturing or feed
ing them very much as cattle are fed.
Feeding usually begins in early fall
and continues until Hie end of the
year. Many carloads of I w year-old
mules go south.
The f ling Is besl done In sheds
equipped for thai purpose. lu most
nectlons, nt leant five kinds or f I
.an be lihd. Corn Is Ihe principal fat
tening element, but bran and sbelleil
oats act as a loosening agent and pro
luce n good coat. Such feeds should
be given In the proportion of one part
bran or oats to three or four parts
corn. Soy beans are a promising mulo
feed, being the equal or linseed meal.
In rearing and rattening mules, tho
shearing should bo attended to often.
The mane rails over badly when al
lowed to gel loo long, and It Is prac
ticaily Impossible to make a good trim
later. When receiving a mule that has
been shod, remove the shoes, especial
ly those on the hind reel, the first
thing. Mules will kick each other,
but if there are no shoes, no harm Is
Work as many as possible, ir only
A limn or two. Many consider a mulo
broken that has had only one or two
lessons in the wagon or plow. Mult s
should be kept, during the fattening
period, ronti I to tho shed. Good
bedding Is very essential lo producing
a fine llnlsh. Tho above is written
with special reference to cotton mules,
but applies equally well to other de
mands. Most ull tho cotton mules
from Kentucky aro sold through the
Atlantic gatewny. The market open.-
In tho late fall or early winter and
closes In early spring.
