Killed by Mer (ruudiiiiii. The wife of (leu. Geo. 1'. Horns, living in wealth and comfort at the family mansion on King's Highway and Olive street, lit St. Louis, was found dead lu her house on Sunday morn ing by members of the household. The night before Russell Brown, a grandson, visited the house and late in the evening was heard to say, "(jraudma, come in here a minute before you go to bed, I want to talk with you." The old lady was l.iund dead in the room to which she was invited by the young man. There were finger-marks on the throat and evidences of a struggle. Drown was missing, and so was artof Untold lady's jewelry, next morning, but was caitured at nignt. The young man, it appears, had expectations ot inheriting a part of the old ludy's property whose death he thus hastened. Later accounts show that young Drown was accomjiauied to the Horns mansion by a young man, a barkeeper, named Patrick MclJIew. That the two bad been on a siree and getting out ol money, planned the robbery ot the old lady, intending only to take htr watch and jewels. In doing so they had thrown her down, and to jirevcnl her outcries, choked her, leaving her, as they sujtposed, in an insensi ble condition, and none .seemed mole aston ished next morning thmi both were to learn that the old lady wan dead. Drown made no attempt to avoid arrest, or to deny what he had done. Mctilew lied to Chicago where be was arrested on Monday. He, too, made no at leoi)t to deny the robbery or the part he took in it.

The subject was elaborately considered ut a meeting of several hundred Mew York and New England farmers last week in New York City, the jiioeeeilings bt u:g n jiorled in lln-city p'i)crs, covering half a dozen of columns. We venture, from the numerous sjiceches there Bade, to cull a few extracts: .Mr. Potter gave the results of bis exieri nice in I'lesciviug corn, rye, the gras.-es, sor hum, and, in fact, everything that can be ra'sed in this stale. He thought that red clover was, in most resjiects, the best crop fur en.-i !erlv preserved by ensilage, a piece about six inches cube would be a good ration for a cow, because il would be socomjmct. He believed that crops would keej) in tlie jiits or silos ten veins as good as the day they were cut. He had raised sorghum for three years, and found it a better crop thiiu corn. It would produce more milk and flesh to the acre than could be got from corn, hut would exhaust the soil more. In a favorable season he could net a I reify good second crop. He found that sor idiuin took a little longer than corn to mature. Mr. Albert Deed, of Warwick, K. I., said he clover, sorghum and rye, ol ull oi which be r.r...r.ti.il u.ttioiti.u !!. lt.nl uutiv.fb.il huiwidl f (he enormous value of ensilage by weigh- ing his cows und their food ami iirnducts with and without ensilage. He jireseuled statistical tables showing that tlie same cows, with eusi lage food, would thrive und give better milk and more of It. He showed a sample of sweet, yellow butter, w hich he said was produced from the milk of a cow whose butter was white and insipid when she fed on other food. In one cow be increased the quantity ot milk two jiounils a day, and the butter was richer than bctorc. He estimated thai the cows ate about fifty pouu.U each of ensilage fodder per day. His statistics showed rugular decrease of llesli and loss of milk when ensilage food was withdrawn. He had let his sorghum go to seed bctorc cutting it and upon taking it out of the ensilage jiit he found it perfectly sweet, lie let his cuttle eat much ol the com- lahc food as they would. When eat uig either ensilage or cuied food he allowed his cows six quarts of bran a day. "Did you notice any dill'erence in the quan tity ot water that the cows drank?" was asked. "Oh, a material difference," said Mr. Heed. "Sometimes they would not drink ut all. The food was so moist witii tlie natural juices that they would not need water. 1 placed it where they could get it cotivcniently.aud even warmed it tor them, out they would not take mucii oi it when they wire feeding on this ensilage fooik" Mr. W. M. White, ol New York, said he had pliiiitcit corn with drills 111 rows thir ty-two inches apart, anil got eleven tons ana '.'00 pounds to the acre. He had tried sowing broadcast and only got half as much as by drilling. He cut some of his corn three-eighths ot an inch long and put it in his silo. Alter that he had cut some double that leugth. The corn that was cut later was not so satislatory in feeding. The corn that was sowed lstest was most satisfactory when taken from the silo. That winch was older the cattle did not like so well, lie approved of cutting the corn in a comparatively greeu state for ensilage. He managed to stow four tons nu hour from the field to tlie ensilage pit very comfortably. He had fed as much as a huudren pounds a day for one ration, but eighty pcuiuls was bet ter, lu one case an animal gained a hundred pounds in weight in forty-two days. He pro posed to try a sixty-pound ration. Mr. J. A. lieges, of St. Louis, sj)oke of the necessity of machinery for cutting the heavy stalks ol corn and sorghum, lie had no doubt American invention could supply the demand for new implements. Mr. Wright, ot New York, described his four silos. They were 12 by 40 feet and 10 feet deep. They held about 200 tonn, and he had tilled them in two days, using 10 men and G two-horse teams, costing him from 30 to :t5 cents a ton for cutting and put ting the crop in the silo. The crop was corn planted about 112 Inches apart. He got about :150 tons out of 40 acres, and planted with drills run by horse power. Alter he got the crop in the pit he had the boys tramp it down, and then put on 100 pounds to the square toot. He showed a sample that had kept perfectly well. "Do the cattle like it?" inquired a delegate. "Yes, sir," said Mr. Wright, "I have 150 cows and they will take all they can get" "Do you feed it on the same day you take it from the silo?" was asked. "I do, sir. It is my experience that It is best to use it on the same day." "It is mine that it is best to feed it the day alter," said the chairman. Mr. Wrirbt in discusiine the question oi cost of getting in the cmn to the silos, said that would depend much on the distance of the silos from the field. Mr. rorwr saia mni as the green clover used for ensilage. One great advantage was that a crop could be gathered in the ram and put Into the ensilage jut wei without injury. Chairman Morris said that ensilage was in fact a very simple thing, but farmers seemed to think there was something mysterious about it because the words "ensilage" and "silos" were now to them. It wis in fact a very sini- ple thing. He had made his silos by digging trenches 11 feel deep, 7 w ide at the bottom, and eight leet wide at the ton. He did not line them at all. The water did not come in. When he hail the pit filled with a crop he put a covering of felt on it and covered it w ith dirt as a weight. He used salt first to put on the crop as it went into the pit, but be found that was unnecessary. The soil was marly clay. He did not think there was any. necessi ty for building a wall of stone und cementing pits, as some did. He found his trenches to answer all purposes, and should build more in that way. As for brick walls, he said every body knew they could not be made air tightor water tight. He did not find that the rain jien eiraied bis covering of earth and felt. He found nodilliculty in moving his cutter from one silo to another. The average shrinkage was one third the bulk- RATIONAL CITY lAflt OK OTTVWA. (Koniii.r!yl,'ity Hunk of K.imes. Allen t Co.) I..
