OBNU Items of Interest -TO THE Members and Friends of the Metho- dint Episcopal Church in and about Judith Qap, Qurneill, Straw, Oxford. ---- B Y — Carlos D. Bradley, Pastor Regular services next Sunday: Uamelll, 11:00 a: m. and 7:30 p. m. Judith Qap, 3:30 p. m. The pastor lectured last Sunday af ternoon at Oka and organized a Sun day school with the following people as otlicers: Mrs. M. ». Trautman, superintendent; Mrs. Pierce, assis tant superintendent; M. S. Traut man, secretary and treasurer. Services at Oxford last Sunday were well attended. The Sunday school hour, which preceded preach ing, was one of much iuterest. The lessons of the past quarter were re viewed by Superintendent S. P. Har rington in a most able manner, bring ing out manv things of practical benefit to the school. The music, un der the direction of Mrs. J.G. Les ter, is always a conspicuous feature of both Sunday school service and morning worship, contributing in a large measure to the effectiveness of the exercises. The inter-class con test is in full swing, the "blues" leading with a stroug maiority. We predict highly satisfactory results from this unique method of recruit ing the ranks of the Sunday school. On Sunday the 21st and Sunday the 28th the good people at liascom bench school house were favored with a sermon by ltev. A. J. Arm strong and Uev. W. A. Wilson, re spectively, At this place is found one of our nourishing Sunday schools. The pastor has promised to provide preaching for the place at least once a month. Unable to make the ap pointment regularly himself, he con siders himself fortunate iu getting the above men to till the appoint ments. The weekly prayer-meeting, which was started last week at Judith Gap, bids fair to thrive. This week it will be held at the residence of Grandma McKenzie, who is unable to attend services at church, and on Wednesday evening instead of Thurs day evening, at 7:30. Next week the service will be at the Methodist church on Thursday evening. All are cordially invited to attend. The Garneill Sunday school is al ready planning for Rally Day, which falls on the last Sunday in October. Miss Jessie McHugh has charge of the training of the childreu. Miss Nettie Shiell will manage the music. The Sunday school management con siders itself fortunate in securing these talented young ladies for such important work and feels very grate to them. It is imped that all our schools plan to observe Hally Day with an appro priate program. Such a one has been prepared by the Hoard of Sunday schools, 14 West Washington street, Chicago, 111., who will send sample programs upon application. The Ladies Aid Society of Judith Gap is certainly active these days. They are billed for a chicken pie so cial for Thursday evening this week, which is the second like affair they have had since conference.

The instrument is a beautiful one and will greatly aid in the excellent music furnished at that place. Cash iu full was sent with the order, which is a matter of no small importance. Of course the Ladies Aid Society is to be credited for practically the whole of this piece of work. We congratulate them. WILLIAM MANNING DIES FROM INJURY William Newton Manning, twenty one years of age, a bra kern an in charge of a switching crew in the G. N. yards at Great Fails, died al most instantly after receiving in juries at about 3:30 on the morning of the 28th of September. William Manning is a brother of Jack Manning, formerly well known iu this city. Mrs. Jack Manning, who has been visiting at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. U. F. Sul livan, left on Monday for Great Falls to be iu attendance at the funeral. She was accompanied by her daught er, Doris. The coroner's jury impaneled to inquire into the circumstances lead- j ing to the death of the young man, j rendered a decision on Tuesday in ! which they stated that they did not | consider the Great Northern railway j company blameless, because of the j fact that a pile of stone lay near ! where he met his death and it is not I improbable that lie stumbled over it I in trying to make a coupling. Nu- j nierons other refuse lying about the j yards was cited before the jury as ev- ! idence upon which the company was i declared to have been negligent.

ACT PROMPTLY AFTER RAINS at j j in ! | j j ! I it I j j ! i j S. fol : T. It. 32e; land date ap all who of how is her the glad have lady; in."— As one purpose of cultivation is to destroy the weeds the cultivating should be undertaken when the weeds are small, before they have thrown out more than two or three leaves. Another value to be gained by culti vation is the increase of fertility in the formation of nitrates by bacteria. Cultivation for this purpose should be undertaken during the early period of the plant's growth, and such cul tivation should be relatively deep, say two and one-half to four inches. The third and main necessity for the cultivation of crops is the con servation of soil moisture. Soil mois ture should be conserved as soon as possible after heavy rains. The main cultivation of the crop should be In June, during the early growing portion of the season, at the time of the heav iest rains. We will suppose that from the rains of May a quantity of water has been stored in the soil. This water will approach near the surface of the ground, but it will be held in the soil provided a soil mulch is formed. It now requires but a slight rain to form capillary water between the stored water and the surface of the ground. After the ground is wetted, from the surface to where the water is stored, it takes but a very few drying days for a comparatively large quantity of water to escape so that the soil may be drier within say thirty-six hours after a light rain than it was previous to the rain, or than it would have been had no rain occurred. Later in the season, when the period between rains is longer, a deeper lay er of dry soil is naturally formed near the surface of the ground, with a consequent more efficient mulch. In such caseB light showers may not act injuriously in abstracting the stored water of the deeper layers. It is well known in the semi-arid regions that it the crop has a relative abundance of stored moisture upon which to draw it can pass through comparatively long periods of drouth without much injury. It should not be forgotten that the cultivation of the crop in June pro vides for the storing of moisture which will carry it over the drouthy periods of the growing season. All cultivation for the purpose of storing moisture and increasing fer tility should be as level as other con ditions permit. Soil which is left rough dries out more rapidly. It should not be forgotten, also, that where the soil Is left rough the fer tility of the increased amount of the dry soil is lost to the plant, for when the soil is dry fertility is not avail able. SHEPHERD'S PURSE. Shepherd's purse is troublesome mainly because of its early and pro lific seed bearing qualities. It is easily subdued by good plowing and clean culture. It yields readily to the culti vator and hoe and may be held In V V SHEPHERD'S PURSE. Entire plant (X'A) and an enlarged pod (X3.) check by any good arrangement of crops in rotation. It often gains a foothold where bare spots have been left in grain fields or at roadsides or in thin meadows and pastures. Well prepared seed beds and full seeding will prevent the appearance of the weed in most cases. 4. 4.4, 4. 4« -h -h 4* 4* 4* 4- 4* 4* 4* 4* + j* 4* A good fence is insurance 4* 4. against the depredations of 4* 4- browsing animals.
