THE ROCK ISLAND AllGUS, FllIDAY. OCTOBER 10. lfclH).
THINGS SAID" AND PONE BY WIDE
O T..m. at Home .nd Abroad-Collar
and Harness for Cattle Substituted for
the Old fashioned Heavy Yoke Oxen
Trained to Trot.
The iclt-nof trotting oxen may seem
ridiculous to those wh regard ine ton
emblematic of slow and labori
mix movpinriit. Oxen run be trained to
walk and even trot at a fair pace. Act
ive Devon steers will walK ftirtner than
k snari of hornes under favorable circnm-
stance. Rnral New Yorker thinks it ia
evident that oxen are more comfortable,
more easily guided and freer to walk and
trot in collar and traces than when car
rying a heavy yoke on their neck.
There hart been a gTeat deal of dis
cnimion among mechanics as to the point
of the body from which the ox can draw
the heaviest load. The horse draws
from hi shoulders or breast, while with
the nsnal yoke the ox must draw fr jtu
the neck. In parts of Brazil, where al
most all the carrying trade must lie dor.
with ox teams, animals have l"en bred
fur thick net-ks and straight shoulders,
that they mr do full service at the yoke.
With such oxen the yoke may be most
suitable, but for the animals usually
worked it would wwii that some more
desirable harness milil be found.
OOI.LAR AND HARNESS FOR OXEN.
Tlie Germans for a l'ri! time fastened
the traces directly to the horns of the
oxen. Many of them still have a stont
strap bound around the b:tse of the
horns, to which the traces are fastened.
A Long Island fanner has invented an
improvement on the German method.
In this the ox draws from the forehead.
a padded band fitting around the head
first above the eyes. The authority
quoted thinks that uianv oxen that are
worked in heavy yokes va.ste a portion
of their trenth because their necks are
too light to stand the full weight r.f
their bodies, and their shoulders are not
straight enough to properly fit into the
bow. 1 hese oxen would do better work
in the harness shown in the cnt and pho
tographed by a New Jersey comnixmd
ent for Rural New Yorker. These oxen,
it is claimed, have become irfectly
fami.iar with this harness, and work as
contentedly in it as they ever did in the
yoke. No experiments have been made
to determine whether they can haul a
heavier load with the collars and traces,
but it is believed that there is little dif
ference in this respect.
Selection of Kr Hire.
Begin with thoroughly and accurately
made hives. Examine, so far as practi
cattle, all thesrandard hiveson themarket
before yon decide on the kind yon will
have. This is important f. ir two reasons.
First, all hives in the same apiary ought
to be precisely alike, so that all parts are
interchangeable. Second, a change in
hives, after one is once engaged in api
culture, involves much time, labor and
The old liox hives have long since been
abandoned by intelligent apiarists for
the movable comb hives, of which there
are two types. One consists of a box, ia
which hang the frames which hold the
combs. The adjacent frames are so far
BCTiarated that the combs, which jnst
fill them, shall be the proper distance
apart In the other kind the ends of the
frames are wider than the comb, and
when in position are close together, and
of themselves form two sides of a box.
Most, if not all, the standard hives in
present use represent one or the other of
The main feature of tho hive should
be simplicity, which excludes drawers
and traps of various kinds. It ought
also to be made of good pine or white
wood lumber, thoroughly seasoned. The
movable comb hive was invented by
Langstroth about IS-ju. The "Lnng

is well known today throughout the en

The Thrilling Tale f Mlu B
The train was passing over a high
trestle work ou an Ohio Milroad when a
man who had been smoking his cigar in
silence suddenly observed:
"Ah! gentlemen, but I have cause to
remember this spot all my life."
"Anything hapiien to you herer ask

"Indeed somet hing happened. It was
two years ago this month. I waa visit
ing my aunt in that hamlet t the other
end. (.Hie day I wanted to come over to
trp big stone quarry, a quarter of a mile
farther on. It was a near cut to take
the track, and so 1 took it."
"And met a train!" exclaimed a voice.
"Yes, I had reached the center of the
trestle, which lB ninety.five feet above
the cruel rocks, when I heard the whis
tle of a locomotive, and a moment later
caught sight of a freight train rounding
the curve. There was only one possible
way of escape."

"About ten minutes."
"But did it take the train that long to
pass over you?"
"Then how was it?"
"Why. tho train side tracked at the
other end, yon see, and I hung on until
one of the brakesmen walked out to me
and said if I wasn't in tho circus busi
ness to stay Fd better get out of that"
"But I don't exactly see."
"Oh, there is nothing to see. I got off
the bridge all right, with three hours to
spare before another train came along.

Candidate far that Offler.
The A rocs presents herewith a
cut of Mr. Charles B. Marshall, of
Cordova, the democratic candidate for
superintendent of schools. He is a
genial, active, brainy young man,
and during his candidacy tnds
himself meeting with every encourage
ment. He was born in this county in
1856, his parents having come here in
1-30, and are, consequently, old settler-.
He was educated in this county, and b
gsn teaching school when nineteen years
of age, and has been continuously teach ing
fcince that time. He has held success
fully all the township offices, and is a
member of the following societies: Mod -ern
Woodmen of America, Ancient Ord
er United Workmen, and is mitstei
of Masonic lodge No. 553.
His school work has been of the most
successful character. Wherever he bus
been engaged in that capacity his iiervice
were agsin required, the impression midl
and the duties fulfilled being always of
the hist. The whool board lust spring at
Cordova selected Mr. Marshall from
among twenty other applicants to con
duct their school there, and their selec
tion was made with a unanimous voice.

Some or the telephone subscribers
thoueht all that was necessary would te
to ask for direct lines to tbe exchange at
Rock Island and it would be giyeu them
upon application. Tbe result proved
disastrous, as the matter was taken in
hand by the t'enersl office at Chicago,
which decided to remove the exchange at
Milan. At a meeting of the Business
Men's association a committee was
appointed who made a diligent ef
fort to have the exchange remain,
but was unable to convince the gen
eral manager to leave it, and their de
cision was made final. On Oct. 3d the
entire system was removed by orders
from the geueral offices to the manager
at Davenport. Just on the eve of our
general prosperity, with a bright future,
discontent has placed us down into the
