W. D. Zinn, county agricultural } agent, discussed live stock and fill ing and sealing silos Saturday after noon In the court (louse before a large attendance of Harrison county farmers, and the meeting proved one of much helpfulness to all In attendance. Horses, cattle, sheep and hogs were dwelt upon in particular by Mr. Zinn, and he laid special em phasis on having only pure bred sires -from chicken up to horses. Draft, saddle and driving horses re ceived his attention and ha advised the farmers to grow draft rather than driving or saddle horses. For the farmer who keeps two teams all or a part of the time he suggested that brood mares be kept so thai ? few colts could be raised every year and thus make the mares pay a part of their way. Three kinds of cattle were dis cussed, namely, Herefords, Short Horn and Aberdeen Angus. He stated that short horns were better for milk and butter, while the other two kinds were better for beef ana easy .wintering. He declared that we are living in an age .too fast to keep cattle until they are three years old, and that they should be prepared for the block at the age of two years.. Dairy breeds such as the Jersey were given his attention and it was his observation that Jer seys are the most numerous in this county, and better for butter while Holsteins were better for mlik, but not of great value for fatts. Mutton and wool sheep vrsre dis cussed and he deplored the fact that there were too many dogs in this county. He said the most profitable sheep for thiB county are Shropshire Southdown, Hampshire Down Ox ford Down and Dorset Horn. He said thy are all flnne s-d the kind 'for farmers to keep depends on his fancy, as he will thus take better care of thepi. Mr. Zinn said he found farmers in this county keeping hogs on plank floors, when in fact they ought to be out grazing at least two thirds ot the year. Mr. Zinn also made a brief talk on seeding rye and fertilizers. DERAILED On Pike Street is Despard Car and Traffic is Tied Up for an Hour. Street car traffic on the Pike street line of the traction company was tied up for a little over an hour early Saturday night as the result of the derailment of a Despard car just In front of the Catholic church. No one was hurt. The accident happened about 6:39 o'clock, and a few minutes before S o'clock the car had been l*eplaced on the rails and traffic was resumed. Traction officials said that the ac cident was probably caused by the new schedule, which was put Into effect early Saturday evening when the Elk creek bridge on Main street was ordered closed. The new sched ule provides that tHe Despard and other cars shall travel eastward on Pike street, instead of Mcln. It was said that the reversing of the ears was the probable cause of the accident.

CRITICALLY ILL, - Support of Elk Creek Bridge Knocked from Foundation by the Impact. All traffic across the Elk creek bridge near the corner ot Main street and Montlcello avenue, was ordered stopped late Saturday af ternoon as the result ot an auto-, mobile, driven by H. L. Travis, striking the east end ot the bridge with such force as to knock one of the supports of the bridge from its foundation. Mr. Travis and two young women stenographers, em ployed at' the 'Travis Qlass Com pany. escaped unfiurt. Bridgeport cars on the traction line are being detoured by way of Pike street, while passengers on Broad Oaks cars are forced to walk from the bridge to the city. Pedes trians are allowed to cross the bridge, but are warned by, officers that' they do so at their own risk. A Broad Oaks car crossed the bridge a few minutes after the acci dent, and as a result the center of the bridge sank several inches. The order to stop 1 ail traffic was issued by Mayor G. H. Gordon as soon as he learned of the acident. According to Mr. Travis he was going' east and the north wheels of his automobile were between the street car rails. An automobile and a wagon tfere crossing west down the Main street hill, he says, and he turned sharply to the right. The wheels skidded on the wet rails ana the car plunged into the east end of the bridge. The fact that Mr. Travis was driving slowly at the time probably accounts for the fast that no one was hurt. The wind shield, radiator and one fender ot the automobile were crumpled up by the impact. It is said that the bridge sank about eight incnes withia the few seconds after the accident. A few minutes later p. Broad Oaks car crossed and the bridge went down further. The matter was then re ported to Mayor Gordon and he im mediately ordered the bridge closed, and sent two officers to the scene to enforce the order. Inspection of the bridge by the city engineer and street commis sioner revealed that .It would be at least two days before repairs could be made. It was announced at the traction company's offices that the following I schedule Would be used until tho bridge' is repaired: Adamston, Wilsonburg and O'Neil Csrs will run east on Main street to Fourth, then to Pike and then west. ? -The Despart-Stealey car will run east on Main street to Fourth; then to Pike 'and then east to Despard. Industrial. Grassell! and Bridge port cars vlll run' west on Main street to the damaged bridge and then reverse. Cars on the Broad Oaks line will run to the damaged bridge. Causes Death of Robert J.
