The Republican portion of the state
administration has been eminently
satisfactory, and will be heartily en
dorsed by the party. Attorney-General
Hadley is the gubernatorial fav
orite, and if he can be prevailed upon
to accept the nomination will be a
valuable asset to the party. Secretary
Swanger is one of the big men of the
party in the state, capable of filling
any place, and as he now holds a
most responsible position, he will be
asked to stand for re-election. He is
one of the best campaigners in the
state. Under the laws of the state,
Treasury Gmelich is ineligible to re
election, but he has brought wisdom
and competency into the management

in 1000, is a bright and shining light.

A Pleasant Surprise
Friday, Nov. 22nd, being the 07th
birthday of Mrs. Wm Gold, of Clarks
burg, Mo., her daughters and sons-in-law
planned a pleasant surprise for
her. Those present weres Wm. Gold,

Walter E. Gold, wife and daughter,
and Mrs. S. A. Smith and S. E. Cur

all from Versailles, Mo. About 12
o'clocck the party from Versailles
reached Clarksburg, and went direct
to Mrs. Gold's home, where a table
was set with the best of good things
in abundance. Mrs. Gold was then
sent for to a neighbor's where she
had gone by request. On her return
' ime she was very much surprised
indeed to meet so many of her child-r-

but fully enjoyed it. She was the re

The third series of entertainments
given under the auspices of our

Kindness To The Old People.
One of the things that should not be
neglected, nor in all cases be regarded
solely as a "duty" to be gotten
rid of as quickly as possible and with
the least expense and trouble, is attention
to old people. If your parents arc living,
let them share In your life as far as they
may, and visit them whenever you can.
If you cannot visit them, at least send
them the longed-for letter, or the loving
message on a postal card. At the lioli
day season, send them a little remember
ance they will not be particular as to
costliness, for Its chief value in their fad
ed eyes will be that it coutea from the
"boy" or "girl" that will alwajs be one
of the "children," no matter how the
world may regard you,
Old people have few pleasures, as their
interest are narrowed down by the in.
firmitlcs of age, and they live more in
the past than In the present; they look
forvard but a little way, and their dulled
ears hear the sound of waves breaking
upon an unseen shore far more distinct
ly than they do the roar of the traffic or
the blare of the battle music. Their
world Is not your world, but their lonely
old hearts follow you, lovingly, longingly.
Their companionship may not interest
you much, and their garrulity wear upon
your patience; but do not forget that
their best years were given to caring for
you, and it would be but a small return
for their long devotion to give theui a
few hours of your company, or a mo
ments time for a "Hail!" as you sweep
along the faster current that is bearing
you past the quiet haven into which their
battered barks have been swept by the
swlfl of the stream. Some day the word
will reach you that the frail old Ixtdy has
found rest, and remembering the riches
of theii love for you in the old time, vou
will not think it much to leave jour
business and go back to help lay them
away inside the Gates of Trace.
Remember now, while they arc still
with j on, how childishly happy your
presence co'uld make them, and "Don't
keep all the flowers for the funeral."

Our Poultry DcD&rtmcnt.
Grp.kn Cut Bonk,
Crecn cut hone has great value when
used as an addition to the poultry ration.
It Is good lxtli for eggs and for growth
of chicks. A Moderate feed of green
Imne has been known to start egg pro
ductlon when everything else failed. The
quality of the bone makes considerable
dliTerence. The more scrap melt that is
included, the better the feed, provided
the meat is fresh and wholesome Raw
bone with a lilieral sprinkling of meat
scraps fresh from the block is the most
valuable form in which it can be obtain
ed. Boiled lnes that are extracted
after the meat is cooked for other purpos
es are not so good, because the boiling
extracts most of the soluble food ele
ments. The smaller bones contain more
scrap, cartilage and other food particles
in proportion than the big beef bones.
It seems to make but little difference
whether the Irenes are from cattle, sheep
or hogs, but the smaller Irenes in any
case are to be preferred. Bones that
have been Ivoilcd and exposed to the
weather are of little value except for the
lime they contain, One reason why some
poultry men arc more successful In
the feeding of cut bone than others is
that they are more particular to have
them fresh aud feed In quantities, accord
ing to the need of the fowls. Judgment
of course is necessary iu this respect as
well as In all other live stock matters.

If the weather is cold, I give more
corn; if warm, less. The essential point
in feeding my birds is to give as large n
variety as possible, tad to make them
work for all the grain by scratching,
keeping plenty ot fresh water, beef
scraps, grit, ojster shell, aud charcoal
always before them. Corn wheat and
oats are the staple grains. My hens
seem to relish all hinds, Barley makes a
good change, aud I feed It four times a
week; rye is an excellent grren food in
early spring; buckwheat is good, but too
high priced at times and should be fed
sparingly, except In cold weather; millet
might Ixr fed to an advantage occassional-,
but I would recommend it only in
combination with other grains. Mrs. H.

One reader advises the following as the
best spraying mixture to be used on the
Interior walls and roost of the hcu house
for mites and lice. One gallon of cheap,
est keroslnc oil and a pint of crude car
bolic acid. These materials mix well and
when applied with a spray or nu old
broom the mixture is death to all mites
aud lice with which it comes into contact.
The idea that roosting on oles or roost
causes crooked breast broues 111 young

One exerienccd poultry raiser tells us
that after a great deal of Investigation he
has found that crooked breast bones re
sult froui the lack of proper bone build
ing food and not from roosting on a
perch. Last vraf he conducted a li tie
experiment af his own. One pell of pure
bred Plymouth Rock was fed a ration of
lione and meat meal mixed with other
feeds once a day and another pen was
given iiou-Ihjuc buildhiK feed. Both
pens had roosts, while a third pen was
without roust and was fed no bono hull. I
iug food. The pen that received the
Iwue meal showed no signs of crooked
breast bones, while the majority in the
other two pens were ulTected.

Remember that comfort and dampness
never go band iu hand. If it is desired
to keep the birds comfortable It Is neces
