Tbe Burlington' road has as engine

The locomotive is No. 302 and it is mak

the pressure. ' It is the'ionly engine pull

and Eist St. Lo lis. and is manipulated by
three different engineers, who alternate
the trips. They are Engineers Jame.,
Kendall and Hatlis. The engine comes
out of East St. Louis in the morning on
No. 1 at 8:50; gets to Besrdstown at
12:20. waits there for No. 2, which it
starts back with at 1 20 and reaches East
St. Louis at 5:35 p. m. It comes out
at 8:85 p. m., arrives at Besrdstown at
12 80 and waits for No. 4 until 2 30 a. m..
when it starts back for St. Louis, arriv

two hours it comes out again on No. 1
The Burlington seems to be testing tbe
enduring powers of all its locomotives,

from BeaardslQwa on No. 8, make 378

THE FARMERS' INSTITUTE
Meeting at Reynolds
Sense latereattaa aaal laBtrartlve fa
pera ins llaraaaiaa aa Varlaaa
Reynom!. Jan. 10. Tbe Rock Island
County Farmer' Institute held an inter
esting session at the skating rink at Rey
nolds Thursday , though tbe atteadance
owing to unpleasant weather was net
large. The exercises opened in the
morning with prayer by Rev. J. A. Ria
son. after which Dr. James Cxid de
livered an addtess of welcome and to
which Mr. Cyrus Darling, president of
the institute, responded.
The first paper was read by D. T. But
lr, V. 8., whose subject was, "The
Horse, Disease and Remedies." He
treated or the various ills and ailments
that horsvflesb is heir to and claimed that
lameness or a horse to tbe bind legs was,
in nineteenvtwentietbs of, the cases in the
hnugb joint instead of being in the hip,
aud thtt it was a difficult matter to make
this fact clear to (be average farmer. He
thought a long rest should be given tbe
animal, and Instead nf blistering tbe joint
just above the hoof it would be better to
pierce a few boles in tbe joint with a
burning iron, a hew remedy just discov
ered. Bli.doese was caused by a cata
ract. He a ent into an explanation or
how blindoeta came on in a majority of
the cases and stated that you could leave
jour horse in tbe evening alt rigbt and in
tbe morning find one of ita eyes all swollen
up, a watery substance running out of it,
and it might stay that way for three or
four days and then disappear as sadden
ly as it appears. This will return sever
al limes and every t me it wou'd leave tbe
eye in a worse condition! and at laat tbe
horse would become moon-eyed, which
soon wonld turn to total blindness. He
also explained other diseases,
v At tbe opening of tbe afternoon sees
sion Supervisor R. 8. Montgomery spoke
informally on tbe subject "How Best to
Maintain the Fertility nf tbe Soil," and
was followed by W. ii. Wbeaton on tbe
same subject. Mr. M beaton claimed that
natural fettilizing agents of the soil are
primarily heat from tbe sun, then air. wa
ter and frost. Tbe sun acu on tbe solid
matter of tbe soil, by a slow combustion
or fermentation and liberates tbe gases,
which are tbrown off into the air, and on
tbe water by evaporation. A sudden
coolness qf the air, condenses this vapor,
and it falls upon the earth In the form of
a rain or dew, but not pare water as it
was when It left tbe surface of the earth
by evaporation, but charged with am
monia. ,and carbonic and nitric acids,
which it has washed from the air through
which it passes. If it falls in a gentle
shower or dew it is absorbed by tbe soil
with the fertilizing properti-a which it
bas washed from the air. If it comes In
heavy showers it runs off tbe surface to
the lower lands, carrying with it tbe en
riching particles which it takes from tbe
air and also a portion of surface soli,
which is tbe most fertile part. Water Is
tbe great solvent, wbile filtering through
the earth, and after reaching the water
line it dissolves and holds In solution the
mineral constituents of tbe soil. When
raised to tbe surface again, bv evapora
tion, it leaves ibis material at the point
where the air and frost can act upon It. In
lorn and prepare it for plant food. The
air in permeating tbe soil acts npon tbe
mineral portion by oxidization, making
these elements soluble in water and so
fitted for plant food. It also assists In
tbe fermentation of the vegetable matter,
liberating tbe gases and causing the de
cay and breaking down of tbe solid parts
so ibal it is easily convertible into plant ;
food. Frost acta upon tbe watnr in 4be
soil by expanding it and causing a pul
verization of tbe solid parts so that the
sun's beat, water and air can more easily
penetrate. "If the foregoing promise be
true it follows that the better condition
we can get the aoil into facilitates the per
meation of heat, water, air and fn at, tbe
more help we will get from these natural
"Growing of such crops at frtquent
intervals, as clover, which by its strong
and abundant roots penetratea into the
subsoil and after decaying leaving chan
nels for water and air. Removal or sur
plus water from the soil by tile draining,
so as to lower tbe water line on our flat
and wateraoaked lands, letting the air
penetrate deeper and tbus make tbe soil
moist in a very dry time. For oar sees
tion of country I would urge the necessity
or tbe growing and feeding on tbe farm
or aueh crops as are especially adapted
to our soil and climate, and carefully aav
ing tue re enure fiat is made therefrom
and applying it to tbe soil." Mr. D T.
Seymour was asked to give his views on
tbe subject, snd said it look eipitrence to
be a successful farmer, and he wouldn't
give one rusty old farmer with common
horse sense, for all tbe books that was
eyer written on agriculture, and how to
make farming pay. That he bad read
tbem by tbe hundred yards, and failed
yet to receive any benefit from tbem.
Tnen came an address by Mr. Lee on
"Tbe Best Methods of Corn Culture." in
which attention was paid the cars and
selection of seed, deep and aballew plow
ing, time and depiB of planting, quantity
nf seed and method and depth of cultiva
tion. Shallow plowing was generally
belter suited to tbe Illinois soil, especially
aod ground. Deep and sub-soil plowing
bas In most instances proved either use
less r detrimental. Plowing before
April 1 is almost a certain preventative of
CJt worm depredations.
"How Can we Make Rural Homes At
ttacilve," was responded to by Mr. 8. W.
Heath, in a very pleasing manner. The
subject seemrd to fli tbe speaker exactly,
for anyone who has bad the pleasure to
Visit Mr. Healh at his rural home w.ll
a. -ree with tbe writer that Mr. Heath baa,
indeed, made Lis home attractive, aod the
advice he gave those present would make
more homes attractive if tbey wonld only
put il.into practice; We now come to
tbe last subject on tbe programme, which
was assigned to our "county treasurer."
Thomas Campbell. The thought oc
curred to many present, how could Mr.
Campbell be so well posted on "county
finances" when he bad only had possess
aion of his offlfte such a short time, bat it
is essy explained, when we consider bow
long Mr. Campbell bad the fflos
of supervisor, kod being on tbe finance
committee, gave him every 'opportunity
of knowing the exact condition financial
ly of our county. Tbe subject received
marked attention as it is a matter of dol
lars snd cents to every taxpayer in Rock
Island county. Tbe president thanked
all present for their good behavior and
