ON A TRAMP.
The widow Gregg was a natural re
former. One afternoon she left her
farm for the village to do some "trad
ing." At 4 o'clock, when she returned
and drove into the yard, a strange
spectacle greeted her. What might be
called the north end of a man was pro
truding from a kitchen window. The
case was plain. His trousers and shoes
showed him to belong to th% genus
tramp. He had called and, finding the
house alone, had forced up the sash
of the window and started to climb in.
At the halfway point the sash had
come down on the small of his back,
and he was held as securely as if he
had been handcuffed and shackled.
The widow's face beamed with sat
isfaction as she entered the house to
take a look at bis phiz. Yes, it was a
tramp, and a hulking big fellow at
that. She went outdoors with a look
of anticipation in her eyes and hunted,
up a bit of board of just the right',
shape, and for the next half hour she
was a busy woman. She stood oft" at
just the right distance from the win
dow, and the board rose and fell with
amazing regularity and vigor. The
tramp kicked his legs about and In
dulged in remarks, but the walloping
did not end until the woman had tired
herself out. Then she took down the
clothesline and wrapped it around the
tramp's legs about forty times, en
tered the house and tied his wrists
securely, and then raised the sash and

Two hours later the tramp's hands
were unbound and food set before him.
The food consisted of bread and water.
There was a consistency in a humble
man eating humble fare. When he had
finished eating he was again made se
cure and dragged to the barn and lock
ed up in the granary for the night.

The first result was a breakfast that
should have done for three hired men.

the table supplied. He wasn't eating

ambitious one. When he had finished

and he was shoveling oats out of the

The Best Fertilizers for Corn
That the yield of corn from the average farm can be greatly in-

demonstrated. Large crops of good corn result from preparing tlic

and proper cultivation.

In some cases remarkable results have been obtained.
Mr. C. W. Caruthers of Sumpter County, Fla., writes: "Words
cannot express the value of your fertilizer. It is really so far ahead
of other companies' goods, that it would not pay anyone to use other
brands, were they given free and put in the field. 1 can prove what
I say to be a fact. I made a test on five acres. I used on one half
the land your fertilizer and on the other half another company's fertil-
izer, same grade; the land received the same cultivation every time.

and I got $joo more from the land on which I used Virginia Carol ina
Fertilizer than I did off the other half. I got four limes as much
corn from the land on which I used your fertilizer"
