Two Das That Count at One
W. W. Padgett, nn attorney nt Fort
Scott, lins rnnclo a tllacovery that Is
now to the legal fraternity and bust
njss men in general. It is said that
the last two days of December this
year, December 150 and 31, are only
one day legally. It seems that way
back during the reign of Henry III,
when the lunar months were disposed
of, changing the first of the year from
March 25 to January 1, and making
the calendar on the irregular lengths,
the law that governs the calendar of
today was established. The leap year
was provided for in order to make the
time come even, but at the same time
it was provided that 3G5 days shall
constitute a year in all cases, so that
every time there is a leap year the
last two days shall count as one In
nil legal papers. If a note falls duo
on the- next day to the last day the
executor has until the end of the
next day to take it up.
Ever remark that a loafer is always
glum; that he is always saying dis

That Dodd's Kidney Pills are doing
a great work in curing the more ter
rible forma of Kidney Disease, such as
Brlght's Disease, Dropsy and Diabetes,

bo noted that they aro doing a still
greater work in wiping out thousands
of cases of the earlier stages of Kid

Others hero tell similar stories. In
fact, in this part of Missouri there aro
scores of people who have cured the
early symptoms of Kidney Disease
with Dodd's Kidney Pills. The use of
the Great American Kidney Remedy
thus saved not only tho lives of Kid
ney Diseaso victims, but thousands of
other Americans from years of sufferings.

never heard of any trouble with cattle
in this. They aro not so fond of the
crop and do not eat it so greedily
when first turned. on it as they do
Until sheep becomo accustomed to
it, it is not safe to leave them for any
length of timo on rape, even after the
dew has dried off. When first turning
them to get a good feed of something
else before turning them on the rape,
then they will not eat so greedily. A
half-hour at a time is long enough to
leavo them on at first. A good way
to pasture it after they have becomo
accustomed to it is to havo it in con
nection with a good grass pasture
aud allow them to run from one to tho
othor dt will. Tho rape is too suc
culent for the best results as an en-
tiro pasturo plant for sheep. If at
any timo they aro Inclined to crop it
until it gets a fresh start.
It should bo borne in mind that no
plant will produce as much feed if
too closely cropped. Tho roots be
come starved for want of tho support
normally received from tho air
through tho leaves. To insure a
maximum amount of pasturage from
tho rapo it is well to withhold tho
stock from it until it gets twelvo
inches high. With tho roots thus
established tho amount of feed it will
supply is enormous. Farmers Voice,
Deterioration of Corn Fodder.
As our readers all know from ex
perience, corn fodder deteriorates very
rapidly during tho winter season if
left standing in tho shock, especially
if tho shocks aro small and not prop
erly built or tied, thus exposing a
largo amount of tho fodder to tho fall
and winter rains. Tho reason why tho
cow does not take as kindly to corn
fodder in tho spring as in tho fall is
because it has deteriorated, often very
rapidly, In quality.
Whero our readers shred their fod
der, tho quicker it is done tho better.
They do not need to wait until tho
fodder is perfectly dry. Just as soon
as tho corn is fit to crib tho fodder
should bo shredded and stored away.
Two tons of fodder shredded as soon
as tho corn is safe to crib Is worth
three tons at least of fodder shredded
in February, provided, of course, it is
shredded when free from dew or rain.
It is not tho remaining sap that de
teriorates fodder, because it does not
