(Continued from page 6.) disk plow can be used, but there are other places, and these comprise the bulk of the land, where the other kind of plow can be used. With cultiva tion the area for plowing will be deepened and in time this will be further helped with the subsoiler. The plan of sowing alfalfa thinly for seed and then drilling winter wheat in between the rows may suc ceed. My fear is that there would be a tussle between the alfalfa and wheat as to which would get the moisture. In countries where the rainfall is on the scant side, it is easy to get the plants too thick on the ground. Potatoes and field roots grown in the rotation would serve the same purpose as the summer fallow in regard to moisture. r THERE WAS NO CHARGE. All the Seats In That Particular Church Were Free. ▲t a certain church an aged usher, to save the exertion of continually marching up and down the aisle to con duct persons to their seats, used to take • stand in the center of the church and when any incomers appeared beckon to them and then conduct them to a seat. The urchins of the neighborhood, knowing his peculiarity, used to pop their heads inside the church door and mimic his action by beckoning to him. Many times he tried to catch one and one Sunday morning nearly did so. But the boy rushed away from the church and ran into the arms of a po liceman. "What have you been up to?" de manded the policeman. Thought the boy, "I'm caught," but he said, "Oh, sir, there's a disturbance at that church, and they have sent me to fetch a policeman." "Very good," said the officer. "I'll step in and see about it." So he opened the door at the west end of the church and, taking off his helmet, entered. The moment the aged usher saw him he beckoned to him and motioned him to a seat next an old gentleman. Immediately he was seated he touch ed the old gentleman and said, "Come quiet." The old gentleman replied, "What do you mean?" Officer—You know what I mean, and I don't want no chat. Come quiet or I shall have to take yer by force. Old Gentleman—I really don't under stand you. Officer—Look here! We don't want no more disturbance! You have been klckihg up quite enough, and I'm going to have you out quick. By this time the congregation were looking at the pair and wondering what was the matter, so the old gentle man said: "Very well. I have not made any disturbance, but to save any I will go with you." So together, to the wonderment of the congregation, they marched up the aisle. When they had passed out of the church the usher followed them, and the policeman, turning to him, said: "Now, then, you have to make your charge." "Charge?" said the usher. "There ain't any charge. All the seats are free."—Detroit News-Tribune. Notice.
