Special to The Bttilic Times.
Moorhead, Minn., June 30.—The
Clay county authorities are puzzled.
They are unable to get a line on what
will be the defense of Alexander An
Ji derson, charged with the cold-blooded
murder of Thomas Crume, a Moor
head bartender.
,1 Anderson has changed greatly in
.'-.iVfj manner since he has been confined
I .'hi lh.e Clay county jail. Instead of
^talk'teg freely, as he did when first
arrested, Ufi rarely speaks at all now
and spends .Ms time playing cards
with the other inmates.
When he was firs^ taken to the coun
ty jail, Anderson was .placed in a steel

sultations with Attorney Witherow,
who was appointed by the court to
make his defense, but the line of de
fense which will be made when the
case comes up for trial, next Decem
ber, remains a deep mystery.
As usual in cases where there ap
pears to have been no justification
for a murder, it is reported that in
sanity will be the plea in defense
We are all at sea on the question
of hardiness in plants and trees this
spring. The Catalpa, which is con
sidered too tender for Northwestern
planters, has wintered in good con
dition on many exposed locations
where the Red Cedar and Arbor
Vitae, which are regarded as bliz
zard proof are killed to the ground.
This combination of unfavorable con
ditions may not prevail again for a
generation of winters. The pioneers
in horticulture and tree planting will
not become discouraged from what
has happened but will fill' the vacan
cies in their orchards and gardens
with the best things obtainable and
again wait for results. A half crop
of berries is often more profitable to
the commercial grower than an over
supplied market A "quitter" is no
good in this world. "The survival of
the fittest'-' is a universal law which
includes men and women. Failure
should make us more determined to
succeed. Plant strawberries by the
-acre next year.
KEEP THE~ilLK CLEAN.
The New York Farmer makes the
following sensible suggestions on
keeping the milk clean:
Yes, of course, your milk is clean.
You wet your hands with milk when
you milk your cows, but none of the
milk drops off your hands into the
milk pail. Of course not. There is
manure pasted and dried all over your
cows, but none of it drops into the
milk pails. Of course not. All the
•same, when you milk this evening,
put two quarts of your milk in a
"shallow glass and set it where it will
not be disturbed. Tomorrow morning
look at the dish. On the top of the
contents you will see a layer of yel
lowish cream. Just below that layer
you will see a layer that looks thlck
ish and Is nearly white. Below you
oWill see a third layer that looks thin
ner, whitish, or blueish-whlte. At
the bottom you will see a dark layer
'•of thlckish, slimy stuff. Carefully
pour off your cream and the milk, leav
ing that bottom layer in the dish.
.When only the bottom layer is left,
vtake a spoon, dip up some of the dark
flayer, smell It, and then taste It
£Ugh! Now lift the dish and drink the
stuff. Uhr! Uht!! Ugh!!! Your
{milk is perfectly clean, and yet you
fdo not relish that considerable part
of It which settles at the bottom of it
Your 40 quart cans have similar
flayers of sediment, of the same color,
the same odor, the same taste, and
the Baine composition. That stuff at
i-the
bottom is what the health officials
object to In milk sent to the cities to
be used as food. Inspection is in
tended to make it impossible to send
%to the city milk containing that dark
stuff with the metallic tang and
nauseating suggestion. .Have yon ex
amined the dark stuff, tasted it,
smelled it and made out just* what

you arrtre. That's all this
or Anderson. If this should be a fact,
it Is generally admitted, there would
be great difficulty in making a suc
cessful defense. Those who talked
with the murderer a few minutes
after the crime and even the next
day are ready and willing to go on
the witness stand and swear that An
derson appeared perfectly rational.
"I'll kill any of like
that every time he tries to do me,"
Anderson is alleged to have stated
when asked a few minutes after
Crume died why the crime had been
committed.
But Anderson's ideas of the world
have changed apparently since his im
prisonment. He is now as mild man
nered as any of the prisoners in the
jail and appears to be worrying great
ly. While he has not yet written
to his relatives in Canada, his attor
ney has for him and yesterday a let
ter was received from the murderer's
father. The contents of the letter
Jiave not been made public but it is
suspected that the information was
forthcoming that ample funds would
be provided for the defense.
For several days after his arrest
Anderson declined to give any infor
mation as to his place of birth other
than that it was in Peel county,
Ontario. Recently, however, he has
confided to the Clay county authorities
the name of his father and the town
in which he resides in Peel county.
He further told that he had a brother
residing some place in North Dakota,
the exact location he claimed that he
did not know himself.
Home and Farm
WINTER-KILLED STRAWBERRIES.
Amateur growers of this fruit are
speculating as to the cause of winter
killing in places where the plants
were properly protected from exposure
and alternate freezing and thawing of
|l the ground they occupied. The loss
is unusually heavy, and accounts in
part for the high prices now prevailing
for this most popular fruit in all sec
tions of the Northwest. Many growers
feel certain that their plants smoth
ered from the effects of the heavy
snow fall that covered the same early
in the winter. Thiais hardly probable
for snow is the ideal winter protec
tion for all kinds of tender vegetation.
Others attribute the loss to root killing
which was due to an insufficient sup
ply of stored plant food which is al
ways in demand and vitally important
to plant life in cold climates.
In our opinion, the unusual loss In
plants and shrubs was occasioned by
the late growth which gave them no
time to ripen wood or store plant food
preparatory for a long, cold winter.
The loss was further increased by the
cold, windy weather in March, which
occurred when the fields were bare
of snow and vegetation especially sen
sitive on account of the absence of
frosts during the fall, which are in
tended to stop growth and aid vege
tation in preparing plants for the win
ter's test of hardiness.
SPRAYING POTATOES.
Thousands of acres in the northwest
are annually devoted to the growing (f
potatoes. Commercially this crop Is
of great importance. It forms one of
our most essential foods and much de
pends upon the success or failure of
the crop.
Cultivation.
By this time the potatoes should be
well up and the farmer must direct his
attention to their cultivation. The
chef objects of cultivation are to kill
weeds and to conserve moisture. It is
necessary that the ground be kept
clean, and the weeds destroyed before
they make much root. The two-horse
wheel cultivator can be used to advan
tage after the plants are two or three
inches high, but previous to this it is
well to use the weeder or light harow,
with the teeth slanted backwards.
One deep working is always necessary
except In the lightest soils. Potatoes
must have room to expand and while
it may seem hard on the crop at the
time, the soil must be thoroughly
loosened around the roots if size is to
be expected.
Dry seasons are always to be feared.
Potatoes must have moisture to make
satisfactory growth. Prof. King found
that it requires 422 tons of water to
produce one ton of dry matter in the
potato. We should not look to the
clouds during summer as the only
source of moisture. There is general
ly enough in the soil for the produc
tion of a crop and cultivation will
bring it to the surface. Cultivation
also prevents evaporation from the
soil and, therefore, the ground should
be worked frequently during dry
weather.
Danger of Wet Season.
Wet weather shortly after planting
causes the potatoes to form roots too
near the surface. Their root system
is then less able to withstand a
drouth should it follow the wet weath
er. The loss from rot is also increas
ed during a wet season. Excessive
rain produces blight which is respon
sible for much rot. But even with ex
cessive rains we need not give up hope
of getting a crop. These troubles may
be overcome by
Spraying.
Blight and rot are both prevalent
in the northwest. While this crop
had a fair chance of escaping disease
a few years ago, there seems little
chance of it now. Bordeaux mixture
applied at the proper time to the vines
will prevent blight, and by the addition
of Paris Green or other arsenltes,
potatoe bugs can be killed at the same
time. Aside from the destruction of
plant diseases and bugs, Bordeaux
mixture and Paris Green when proper
ly applied exert a tonic effect upon the
plants. The Geneva, New York, Sta
tion did much toward interesting farm
ers in this line of work. Some took
up the scheme more as an accommoda
tion to the station than from any ex
pectation of personal gains. Of those
whose tests were reported, 30 growers
made a net profit of $10,000 from
spraying. Thorough spraying is
always effective, and, as a rule, any
spraying will give profit. Farmers
who are yet doubtful may easily satis
fy their minds by
Making a Spraying Teat.
Such a test is very simple. Plan to
spray the whole field, leaving three
rows through the middle of the field
unsprayed. Keep those three rows
free from bugs by the use of Paris
Green or hand picking, and combine
poison, if necessary, with the Bor
deaux mixture, on the sprayed area.
At digging time weigh or measure ac
curately the yield on the middle un
sprayed row and compare it with the
average found by similar measurement
of the second sprayed row on each
side. The results are sure to be con
vincing'and will remove all further
doubt as to the necessity for spraying.
Tbu to Spray.
To spray thoroughly begin when the
plants are six or seven inches high,
spraying every two weeks as long as
the vines are green. If a rain comes
before-the application is dry on the
plants the treatment should be re
peated, but spraying should not be
stopped because "it looks like rain."
Blight spreads fastest in muggy weath
er just after a warm rain at which
time tbe plants most need protection.
It needs only a short time for the mix
ture to dry on the vines and then
nothing less than a hard rain can
wash It off.
Many fanners feel that they cannot
spare the time to go over their pota
toes so often. If only three applica
tions are made during the season, de
lay the first until it is necessary to
treat the potatoes for bugs, or about
the middle of July. Then use Bor
deaux and Paris Green and spray thor
oughly.. The second and third applica
tions should also b? thoroughly made
and at s|ch times as will keep the
iteM ii witfl coated as possible with

the Bordeaux. Don't wait until blight
appears, but if this has been done and
the spread of disease Is not rapid, a
single application at once may do
much to preserve the remaining foli
age.
CHICKEN NOTES. S
Farmers who employ the artificial
method of hatching should now have,
a goodly supply of youngsters running
about, and if these are carefully at
tended to, they should be ready for
killing during the time that prices are
at a maximum. Those who rely on
hens for incubation cannot expect to
have chickens ready for the market
until prices have attained their max
imum, or are on the decline, as sitting
hens are still scarce, and are likely
to remain so for a time. This Is not
the place to discuss the relative ad
vantages or disadvantages of the two
systems, but in passing it may be ob
served that there are few branches of
the poultry industry that yield such ex
cellent results as the hatching and
raising of chickens for the early spring
markets.
A common idea seems (to exist In
the minds of many that winter chick
ens are exceedingly difficult to rear,
and that the extra labor and risk
involved, make it hardly worth at
tempting. This, however, Is by no
means the case and although early
chickens do require careful attention
and cost a little more to feed, the excel
lent prices procurable for them more
than compensate for the necessary
attention and expense of feeding.
Great care should be exercised in
removing the chickens from the In
cubator to the brooder, as it is a
very simple matter to give the chickens
a check from which they will never
recover. Especially is this a point of
importance during severe weather. The
chickens should remain in the drying
box of the incubator till they are quite
dry, and during this time, they do not
require to be fed—in fact they are
better if left entirely at home. The
brooder or foster-mother—the small
heated house. Into which the chickens
go from the incubator, and which takes
the place of the hen—should be main
tained at a temperature of about ninety
degrees during the first week during
the second eight-five degrees is suf
ficient, gradually reducing it, until
when the chickens area month or five
weeks old, artificial heat may be al
together dispensed with. During a
spell of severe weather, the lamp may
have to remain for a longer time, till
they are perhaps seven or eight weeks
old, but under ordinary conditions they
are better if allowed their own way,
as soon as possible.
Many people make a grave mistake
in supplying artificial heat for too
long a time, as this only results In
enfeebling the constitution and render
ing the birds more delicate and
liable to colds. The brooder should
be frequently moved on to fresh
grounds, as tainted soil has a most
Injurious effect upon the chickens.
The utmost cleanliness should be ob
served in everything pertaining to
the chickens.
STOMACH WORMS OF SHEEP.
It is during the summer months
that loss from the twisted stomach
worm of sheep occurs, and flock own
ers should early endeavor to prevent
their flocks from becoming diseased.
Healthy adult animals seldom be
come affected with this disease, and
the greater part of the loss occurs
among young and weak animals.
However, if the conditions are favor
able for the sheep to become infested
with this parasite, the death rate
among the mature animals Is also
heavy.
This disease is not as difficult to
treat successfully, as is generally be
lieved. The preventive treatment is
very important. It is based on keep
ing the sheep in a healthy, vigorous
condition, and among surroundings
unfavorable for the entrance of the
eggs or larvae of the parasite Into the
digestive tract with the feed. Drink
ing surface water and permanent pas
tures, especially if pastured close, are
favorable for the production of the
disease. The preventive measures
that are most practical to use under
the local conditions can be judged
best by the person in charge of the
flock, and the success of this part of
the treatment .will depend on the
precautions that he deems necessary
and the thoroughness with which
they are carried out.
Sheep raisers, who have lost sheep
from this cause in former years,
should not wait until the disease
develops in the flock before using
medicinal treatment. The following
mixture is recommended by Dr. Law,
and has given excellent results ar
senious acid one dram, sulphate of
iron five drams, powdered nux vom
ica two drams, powdered areca two
ounces, common salt four ounces.
This mixture is sufficient for 30 sheep
and can be fed with ground feed
once or twice a week. In case the
symptoms are already manifested, it
should be fed once a day for two or
three weeks. In giving this remedy
in the feed, the necessary precautions
should be taken, or each animal may
not get the proper dose. Turpentine
is largely used in the treatment of
stomach worms. It administered
as an emulsion with milk (one part
turpentine to sixteen parts of milk).
The emulsion should be well shaken
before drenching the animal The
dose is two ounces for a lamb and
four ounces for an adult, and to be
effective should be repeated daily for
two or three days.
SILOS IN NORTH DAKOTA.
An agricultural writer recently
visited a tub silo on the premises of
Soule Bros. Cogswell, North Dakota,
which was giving its owners excel
lent satisfaction and largely increased
profits from their large herd of Hol
stein cows, the milk from which was
worked into cheese in a factory at
home. The tub is made from 2x4
pine sticks of various lengths, with
4x6 timbers set into the building
which are used for lugs for the hoops.
The structure rests on a foundation
of cement and stone, which makes it
both rat and water proof. "Guys" of
wire are fastened on the top hoops and
extend to the ground at a distance of
100 feet or more and there are secure
ly anchored In the ground. The build
ing stands upright in spite of the Da
kota zephyrs which were doing busi
ness at the rate of a mile a minute
while we were in that vicinity.
Many stockmen object to a tub silo
in the east, because they are some
times blown down when poorly an
chored and stayed with fastenings
to other and more substantial build
ings. A silo that will stand the winds
of North Dakota can defy any gale
in the east with the possible exception
of a cyclone. Mr. Soule suggests using
2x6 lumber which shall be as long as
the height of the tub. The expense of
splicing short lengths will quite equal
the difference in cost of material. He
also recommends the use of metal
lugs. His silo is filled with corn which
is cut and elevated with a combined
cutter and blast, propelled by a gaso
line engine that does other work about
the buildings.
Mr. Soule keeps the silage on the
tm~~
THE EVENING TIMfcS, GRAND FO&K8, K*
outside of the tub thoroughly wet
from a standplpe Inside connected
with water works In the feeding
yards. This precaution is worthy.of
Imitation by all who are filling wood
silos, because the very dry lumber
extracts much moisture from the corn
which often causes the silage on the
outside of the tubs to show evidences
of decay while feeding the same. The
extra wetting not only aids in pre
serving the corn, but also very quick
ly swells the shrunken planks suf
ficient to fill air Inlets. If siols are
practical and profitable in North Da
kota, they oertainly should receive
consideration from dairymen in other
portions of the northwest.
The Bordeaux Mixture.
Is made of dissolving 6 pounds of
copper sulphate (blue stone) in 25
gallons of water or in a smaller quan
tity of water which is afterwards di
luted to 25 gallons. Add to this 5
pounds of freshly slaked lime, being
sure to strain it through a fine sack or
screen to remove tbe coarse particles.
Stir thoroughly and pour Into the bar
rel which can then be filled up with
water. Keep strring as long as any
of the mixture remains. Where much
spraying Is to be done'a stock solution
may be used to advantage. Two gal
lons of water will take up almost ex
actly 6 pounds of copper sulphate.
Put 25 to 50 pounds of sulphate into
a coarse sack and hang it in the top
of a barrel, three-fourts filled with
water. Allow it 24 hours to dissolve.
This is frequently more convenient
than weighing as each gallon of the
solution measured out will contain 3
pounds of sulphate. Lime is added to
neutralize the acid. To determine
whether enough lime has been added
use a droy or so of a solution of potas
sium ferrocyanide which can be
bought at any drug store. If this
turns brown when it strikes the Bor
deaux mixture, more lime must be add
eded. If no change in color occurs the
Bordeaux contains enough lime and
tbe acid has been neutralized, but it is
well to add a little more lime, as an
excess does no harm while a deficiency
will cause the Bordeaux to burn the
foliage. When spraying to kill bugs
six ounces of Paris Green mixed with
a pail of water should be added to 50
gallons of the solution.
TILLMWTSTAFTER
THE SCALP OF
BARNES
Morris Affair Aired Again by
His Recommendation for
Washington Office.
Associated Preaa to The Evening Times.
Washington, June 30.—Senator Till
man interrupted the regular business
of the senate Thursday to speak on his
resolution calling for an investigation
into the ejection of Mrs. Minor Morris
from the White house last January.
He complained that this resolution
had been pushed aside constantly for
one reason or another. He spoke of
Mrs. Moris as an elderly lady and re
ferring to his former discussion of the
case, said he had been charged with
going very far in characterizing her
ejectment from the White house as
"brutal and cruel." He recalled that
on that occasion he had been charged
by another senator with an effort to
vent his personal feelings against the
present chief executive. He had not
then been able to supply the proof.
Since tben, he had been held up to
scorn for having presumed to express
his honest feelings and he never would
have again approached the subject,
"but for the fact that the name of
the man. Assistant Secretary Barnes,
who must be held resopsible for the
act, had been sent to the senate for
the postmastership of Washington."
This nomination, he considered
equal to throwing the matter in the
teeth of the senate, although the
senate had not shown its teeth on the
subject. He then detailed his efforts
to have the nomination of Mr. Barnes
rejected, reading his letter to Senator
Carter, chairman of the sub-committee
having the nomination in charge, and
such other matter bearing on the sub
ject. He told also of his ineffectual
efforts to secure an investigation of
his charges against Barnes, and then
said that in order to justify his bring
ing the matter into the open senate,
he had drawn his resolution so as to
provide for an investigation of the
action of the police in' the matter of
Mrs. Morris' expulsion. In order that
he might not be accused of unfairness,
Mr. Tillman had read Mr. Barnes' de
fense of his conduct in the Morris af
fair.
He also read the statements of El
mer E. Paine, who was, he said, one
of the six newspaper men at the ex
ecutive office when the Morris Incident
occurred. He commented at some
length on Mr. Palne's statement, say
ing he was the only one of the six
who had ever had anything to say
about the matter outside of their own
papers or in private conversation.
This he spoke of as "remarkable," and
then quoted extracts of Mr. Palne's
statement. His statement was re
fered to as In substantiation of the
White house statement.
In contrast to that statement he pre
sented what he declared to be the
facts in the case. They were in
cluded in a statement from James H.
Price, another newspaper man, who
had witnessed the occurrence. In Mr.
Palne's statement it was reported that
Mrs. Morris was treated as consider
ately as possible, while Mr. Price said
she was "carried off like a sack of
salt."
RECORD IMMIGRATION TEAR.
Arrivals at New York Will Eclipse
That of Any Previous Tear.
AaaaelateS Press tm The Eveilas Tlmea.
New York, June 30.—Though the
actual figures will not be available un
til next week it is confidently believed
that the immigration record for the
port of New York for the year ending
today will eclipse all previous figures.
In the opinion of Commissioner
Wathern the figures will reach the
enormous total of 1,000,000, or about
equal to the number of immigrants
who entered all the ports of the na
tion during the preceding year. The
immigrants this year have come from
every country of Europe, the Austro
Hungarlans predominating. Next come
the Italians, of whom 25,000, or an
average of 200 to every 10,000 of
Italy's population, came to th^ United
States during the year. The number
of excluded Immigrants has likewise
excluded the reoords of all previous
years.

Devils Lake Chautauqua, June 30.—"
Preparations are now complete for the
opening session of the North Dakota
Chautauqua association, which be'glns
this afternoon with a good program.
This is the fourteenth annual assem
bly at Chautauqua park, located on the
shores of beautiful Devils lake. The
name of this body of water, the largest
in the state, is not synonymous of
great beauty, but it is, nevertheless,
the most beautiful and romantic spot
in the west No more appropriate
place for such a gathering could be
chosen. Easy of access, located right
on the shores of tbe lake, yet well
sheltered by magnificent trees and
shrubbery, it is Indeed an ideal spot
for a summer's outing.
There is no North Dakotan but
knows of the annual Chautauqua as
sembly, it8 location, and all the pleas
ure and rare Uterarv treat its gather
ing implies. Yet for newcomers in the
state, and those abroad who may be
interested, a word or two as to the
profit to be derived from an attend
ance will not be out of place.
The Chautauqua association 'was or
ganized thirteen years ago by a few
patriotic men for the purpose of pro
viding our state with a resort within
its borders where the summer vaca
tion could be spent by our citizens
with their families in out-door life,
and at the same time enjoy educational
and religious facilities, something
never overlooked by the western peo
ple in all their pleasures. And as time
goes on it will be noted none but the
highest order of culture is tolerated in
the training of our young people
hence a literary program is supplied
yearly by men exceptionally qualified
to choose the attractions, that Is sec
ond to none of the older organisations
of the same kind In the east
People of the rarest culture and
literary attainment are brought here
each year to teach and lecture and the
best musical talent that can be ob
tained is always in attendance. For
those who enjoy the lighter phases of.,
entertainment there are humorous lec
tures, light opera, comedy drama, etc.,
plentifully interspersed but of the
highest order. These programs are
continuous during the entire session,
which lasts this year from June 30 to
July 17, and always take place in the
big auditorium with a seating capacity
for five thousand people.
From a small gathering thirteen
years ago, this association has grown
until now there are often as many as
ten thousand people congregated on
the grounds at once. Chautauqua
park Is located sir miles from the city
of DevilB Lake on the Great Northern
line and sixty-one miles from the city
of Grand Forks. The train facilities
for getting back and forth to the
grounds are good. The short line road
is operated by the association, running
every few minutes in the day during
the session, and as often as is re
quired for convenience before and af
ter it closes. There are good res
taurants, very comfortable rooming
places and stores where everything for
summer housekeeping can be procur
ed, and cottages and tents in plenty to
be rented. A postofflce has been es
tablished, and with our excellent train
facilities the politician or business
man can count on getting his mall
daily. Good telephone service con
nects one quickly with the outer world.
The Grand Forks Evening Times will
be delivered each morning early by
carrier, keeping one in constant touch
with the telegraphic and state news
as well as having special Chautauqua
news in the shape of daily letters. The
amusements all summed up are many
and varied. A splendid band will give
concerts dally. Boating, bathing, ath
letic games, baseball, excursions to

The park Is now filled with snowy
tents and pretty cottages. In fact,
some of the cottages rival the summer
homes of many people of wealth and
refinement in some of the older east
ern resorts and demonstrate the fact
that many of our leading citizens in
tend making this their summer home
for many years to come, tor the houses
are all boflt substantially and com
modious. There are now over one
hundred cottages on the grounds and
many more would have been com
pleted before this but for the rains,
making the roads to and fipm the city
almost Impassable for a time and they
are only now getting in fair shape
again. This Is something that is hoped,
will be materially remedied before
next season.. Among the prettiest new
cottages completed is that of Senator
George W. Davis of Evenston, N. D.
His family are here and are getting
settled for the summer. Wallace M.
