the paved and crowded city.
Fifteen thousand Ohio farm boys

clothes, they will fight and win a vic

In the history of the world, no great

One thousand boys and many girls

One or more boys should be sent

The state board of agriculture will

HANDLING ORCHARD SOILS.
"Probably the best scheme ever de
vised for handling the majority of
orchard soils where the lay of the land
will permit, is a combination of clean
cultivation with cover crops," says
Professor Wendell Paddock, of the
College of Agriculture, Ohio State
University. "This method includes the
plowing of the land as early in the
season as the weather will permit. The
plow is followed, at intervals, by the
harrow, in order that the surface of
the soil may be kept mellow through
out the growing season. Usually in
the latter part of July or the first of
August, at the close of the growing
season for trees, a crop of some kind
is planted and this is allowed to oc
cupy tie land until the next spring.
The land is plowed again as early as
possible, and this is followed by clean
cultivation and a cover crop as before."
In a farmers' reading course bulletin
now on the press, Professor Paddock
explains the use of cover crops and
tells what plants can be utilized for
that purpose. This bulletin can be
secured without cost by addressing A.
B. Graham, College of Agricuture,

Suicide by throwing himself into a,
rapidly revolving flywheel at an oil
pumping house was the death chosen
by Floyd Moke, 21, of Bairdstown, O.,
Friday night. The body was found
by J. A. Aldridge, who arrived at the
station on the Dennis brothers' lease
on the Bosler farm, east of North
Baltimore, at near midnight to relieve
Moke. It was badly mangled and
thrown between the engine and the
in the rest snanty written upon a
sheet torn from a calendar upon the
wall, was scribbled the words, "Red,
say you done, it; tell my girl."
"Red" is Aldridge's nickname, and
"say you done it" is thought' to be an
admonition for Aldridge to give out
that Moke's death was an accident
The girl is Miss Forest Cline, 16,
of Bairdstown. The twohad arranged
to wed, but objection on the part of
the girl's parents had frustrated their
plans. It is said they had planned
later to elope. While much disap
pointed Moke had given no indica
tion of suicide.
BIRDS AID FARMERS.
Aside from the aesthetic value, do
you know that birds are your best
friends? They are helping you every
day to make money. In fact they are
more anxious to do it than you are to
have them do it. They are up early
in the morning eating the curculio,
which stings your plums, the coddling
moth which pesters your apples, and
the Hessian fly which punches holes
and lays eggs in your wheat stalks,
besides other bugs and worms. This
has been proven by observation and
examination. But do you realize that
the cardinals, warblers and vireos and
others which help you most are notas
numerous as here-to-fore, and that as
they grow less in number you must
spend more money to get rid of these
pests or else the value of your products

A SHORT HISTORY OF ST. ROSE

Capt. Anion was out on the skirmish
line at an early hour every morning
and leading a gallant fight. He has
tramped oyer many miles of territory
and has used several buckets of lini

equal to the labor.
Capt. Kazmaier was reported to
have left town on Saturday night on
a business trip, but when he turned up
on Tuesday evening it was learned
that he had been engaged in attending
a number of traps he had placed in
the country for birds. Hollenback and
Blue of the trapper squad filed objec
tion to the counting of Capt. Kaz
maier's birds on the ground that he
had no right to use traps without first
securing license from them.
"Come, Tommy, Tommy," called a
lady to her pet cat as she spied George
Munger, Jr., coming around the cor
ner with his shotgun. Evidently the
lady thought George didn't know the
difference between a cat and a spar
row. George says that he has often
seen them when they were one and the
same package the sparrow wrapped
up in the cat.
Chief of Police and Director of Pub
lic Safety Roy Taylor did remarkably
well with his stovepipe traps but his
birds were not counted because he had
exceeded the speed limit.

mouse trap by bringing in four birds
that lost their lives in a demonstration

HEAD END COLLISION.
Monday morning at about 6:30
o'clock a head-end collision occurred
on the C. H. & D. Ry. at the Perrys
burg station, in which a double-header
freight bound north collided with the
south bound local freight.
The engine of the local was not as
badly damaged as was that of the
northbound engine, which was lifted
off tho rails and badly locked with the
front end of the other engine. The
second engine of the north bound train
was not badly damaged and was
able to get away under its own steam,
while the other engines were pulled
into the yard at Toledo.
The crews of the two head engines
jumped and were saved from injury,
while the crew of the second engine
did not leave their posts, but were not
injured. It was a narrow escape tor .
RURAL MVIL CARRIERS.

Kelly of Bradner presided.
Mr. and Mrs. Fred Getz, aged 85
and 75 years respectively, and residing
on a farm near Roachton, were robbed
of a large sum of money on Tuesday
About 1 o'clock a. m. the barking of
their dog awoke them and Mrs. Getz
arose and lighted a lamp and opened
the door and looked out to see what
was the cause of the alarm. As she
re-entered the door a man jumped
through a window and another came
in from an adjoining room. They
seized both of the old people and with
a revolver pressed to their heads they
were compelled to give up all the
money they had, which they had been
saving to purchase a house.
Mrs. Goetz describes the men as ono
being tall and slim and the other a
When they left the house they
threatened to burn the building in
case the old people attempted to fol

though the house was provided with a
telephone the burglars had cut the
wires so that they could not call the
neighbors for help.
Mi's. Goetz informs the Journal that
the amount of money taken was be
