NAMES MANY IN CONFESSION
Former New York Gambler Tells of Grafters on the Metropolitan Police Force. New York.-An even two dozen some dead, some retired, some still on the New York police force-were branded as grafters or go-betweens in the recital of James Purcell, who told the aldermanic investigating commit tee how he and his associates had given up $50,000 protection money in 17 years. His story was the most important told to the committee since it began its inquiry into police conditions fol lowing the murder of Herman Rosen thal, shot down because he "squealed." On the strength of Purcell's unsup ported story, said Commissioner \Val do, he would no nothing, but if his investigation corroborated the gam bler's charges he would suspend the accused officers. The police captains Purcell charged with receiving tribute for protecting his gambling establishments are Pat rick J. Cray, brother-in-law of Charles P. Murphy, the Tammany leader, and Captains Martens, Maude and Coch rane. Others he mentioned are no longer on the force. SPOKANE FAIR SEPTEMBER 15 Date Fixed by North. Pacific Associa tion. Agreeing on the dates for holding practically all the important fairs in the northwest next fall, the annual convention of the North Pacific Fair association adjourned to meet a year hence in Vancouver, B. C. After a two days' discussion the fol lowing dates were decided upon: Van couver, B. C., September 1; Vancouver, Wash., September 8; Spokane Inter state, September 15; Walla Walla, Sep tember 22, and North Yakima, Septem ber 29. One important date upon which agreement could not be obtained was the time for holding the Oregon state fair for 1913. No date was definitely fixed, and the state board of agricul ture will consult the almanacs and weather prophets and later in the year attempt to pick a week in which rain is not predicted. Illinois in 1912 produced 28,000,000 barrels of oil of 42 gallons each. Stiff Joints Sprains,Bruises are relieved at once by an applica tion of Sloan's Liniment. Don't rub, just lay on lightly.

FIF IT'S YOUR EYES E1rr EyE SALVE Is what You, EYE LI3 STOCK WATER TROUGH QUITE NOVEL Heavy Metal Base Holds Pipe Whlc; is Attached to the Support So That It Can Revolve. Something new and odd in the wal of water troughs has been designed b5 a California man. Its novelty lies it the fact that it is self-cleaninig. A heavy metal base supports a pipe which is journaled on the support sc that it can revolve thereon. In thai section of the pipe that is normally Novel Water Trough. underneath are a series of perfora. tions. Rigidly attached to the pipe and swinging from it like a cradle is the trough. A hose leads from the pipe to a hydrant, and when the water is turned on from the hydrant the trough As quickly filled. If the trough is to be cleaned it can be inverted, and as the holes in the pipe follow it around, a stream of water is squirted up up against it and flushes it. This re ceptacle can also be used as a feed trough and the hose attachment used enly to clean it. MANAGING THE ANGORA GOA1 Animals Have Natural Inclination to Browse on Coarse Herbage, but Must Have Other Feed. (By B. B. LARA.) Goats, like other animals, must be fed or they will die. Some people do not seem to recognize this fact, but it is true. Goats have a natural incli nation to browse on shrubs, weeds or any other coarse-leaved herbage, but they must have nutritious feed in ad dition to thrive. If Angora goats are fed and treated as one would treat sheep they will get along very well. In the winter time they need clean clover hay and some grain, and clean, fresh water at all times. The goat is almost as fln. icky as the sheep and requires water untainted by any other animal, sweet grain and hay, as they will not touch these feeds if they are musty. Too much has been said about the ability of goats as weed destroyers. It is true they will clean up a pasture of coarse weeds, and so will sheep; we have never been able to discover much difference and, taking every. thing into consideration, we believe that the farmer who raises sheep in. stead of goats will get better satisfac. tion from his flock. RACK FOR FEEDING FODDER If Sides and Bottom Are Made Tight Grain May Be Fed as Well as Roughage-May Be Moved. A rack for feeding fodder may be built on two runners 2x8, ten feet long. Five pieces of 2x4 stuff are bolt. ed to these runners. The sides are made of 2x4's, five feet long, to which may be nailed such lumber as may )e at hand, leaving a space of sixteen Feed Rack. inches about eighteen inches from the bottom of the rack. If the aides and bottom of this rack are made tight grain can be fed in them as well as fodder, says the Iowa Homestead. They will also hold quite a lot of hay and so may be used as a hay raok. This rack may be moved from one lo cation to another as needed. Breaking Colt to Lead, In breaking a colt to lead do not separate from the dam, but place a small halter on the colt and then have some one lead the mare around. The colt will naturally follow. By gen tle pressure or tension on the halter it is surprising how quickly the lit- I tle fellow will learn to follow you instead of his mother. Care must be taken not to throw, frighten or injure him if he becomes excited, as it would have the bad effect of mak ing him nervous when being handlged TOADS, This is about toads. Just toads. So, if you aren't interested in toads, don't care anything about the ad vancement or uplift of toads, you real* ly may as well skip the paragraph. Toads have been accused of ability to poison infants with their breath, to cause cows to go dry, to carry valu able Jewels inside their head, and to cause warts on the hands of naughty little boys. Moreover, no toad can ever hope to take a prize in a beauty show. But scientists of the United States agricultural department have shown that the toad is no gem carrier, doesn't poison infants, cause warts or harm cattle. On the other hand, each toad is worth $19.44 a year as an efficient afid patient destroyer of noxious bugs and insects. The toad, in fact, is an epicure in bug eating. As such he should be encouraged in all gardens, farms and woodland groves. He is an amiable, but inde pendent, animal, so the use of the term "toadying" is slanderous in re spect to him. To deprive a toad of life is to encourage flies and other pests. What is needed is a society for the protection and patronage of toads. Perhaps in time, by eugenic methods, a handsomer race of toads might be evolved. CLOVES. Cloves, which are used to good ad vantage in preserving fruits, are the flower-buds of a tree that usually at tains a height of between 20 and 40 feet, with a beautiful pyramidal head of foliage. The leaves are large, of an oblong shape, and evergreen. The flowers are small, but very abundant The leaves, flowers and bark of the clove tree possess a strong aromatic perfume. The ripe fruit of this tree is shaped like a small olive. It is sometimes dried and used by the natives, as are also the broken fruit stalks, but the flower buds are the most valuable part of the tree. They are gathered at the proper season, and dried in the sun. The tree is a native' of the Spice islands, but is also cultivated in Su matra, and some other parts of the West Indies. The oil of cloves is use ful in medicine, being often added to tonic mixtures. POETRY AND THE CHILD. Read poetry to the child. Read easy, simple verse, read nonsense verse, read real poems, read some. times such poems as "Thanatopsis" and bits of "Paradise Lost." Of course the child will not understand the thought, but he will enjoy the sound, and he will unconsciously learn the words. Poetry was never meant to be read to one's self, but always to be read aloud or recited. It is harder than prose. The order of the words is often unlike our everyday speech. and the words themselves are fre quently different. Here especially, children need help. If they find it they learn to love poetry, and there are few things that so sweeten life as a genuine love for poetry, for its beauties and for the helpful lines that come to one's mind in hard places. Home Progress Magazine. ENGLAND'S NATIONAL AIR. According to Professor Cambourog. Ion of Athens the tune of "God Save the King" is one of the oldest we have. Six years ago the professor discovered, among the manuscripts in the National Library of Greece, the words and music of an anthem com posed in 1457 in honor of Emperor Constantine Paleologos. The anthem opens with the line, "Long may our sovereign reign," repeated three times. The musical notation is of an obsolete type and had to be trans posed by an expert in ancient music. It was then found that the tune of the fifteenth century anthem is al most identical with that of "God Save the King."-London Chronicle. CONVICTS KEEP THEIR NAMES.
