YOUNQ VIRGINIA ARTIST.
Miss Virginia Wood is one of the
very youngest and moot talented of
American women artists. Like many
daughters of the Old Dominion, she
migrated a few years ago to New
York city, where she soon came to
the fore. In her work Miss Wood
employs either chalks or charcoal ;
and she has been so exceptionally
successful as a portraitist, that her
services are almost continually in
demand by women of fashion and
wealth. Still on the sunny side of
twenty-five, Miss Wood of Virginia
and New York is an extremely pret
ty girl, with an animated manner
and possessed of many qualities
which make her socially popular.

A walnut log in a fine state of

farm in McPhcrson county. C. W.
Bachelor, a farmer, was drilling a

The tree, more than a foot in diame

The only part of this lake remain

Gather Your Seed Corn Early.
The Wabash is distributing fly
bills broadcast urging the early
selection of seed corn for use of
next spring's planting. Hun
dreds of farmers had to replant
their corn last spring nnd then
had only one-half to two-thirds of
a stand because they waited until
spring to get their seed and then
picked it from the crib. The fly
bill issued by the Wnbnsh gives
valuable suggestions how to go
about in the selection of fully de
. eloped cars most suitable for this
purpose, also how seed corn
hould be stored during the win
ler months. Copy of this fly bill

If a doctor's prescription is not
entirely used, the remainder should
be thrown away, bearing in mind
that, if liquid, the bottle should be
emptied and washed. Not one chance
