He has some pertinent pointers and shows himself to be no slouch of a farmer himself.

The Denver Field and Farm is without doubt the best edited, most complete, newsy and contains the mest valuable information of any state agricultural journal in the west. It is a good investment for any farm er to subscribe for it. No country had any more flatter ing prospects for a bountiful harvest than the farming community of Prowers county have at present. A ride north of the river locking over the vast acreage of growing crops, will convince anyone that we have a I great future before us as an agrieul tural country. Why can't some one start a good dairy near Lamar. Butter is shipped in here from Kansas in large quan titles. The man who take* hold of a dairy and run a good one surely will make money. Numerous garden tracts are being cultivated around Lamar this spring, and all are having good success There is no reason why this section 1 should not furnish vegetables enough ! for all home consumption beside** shipping to the outside city markets. The Field and Farm sav*: i ; .This i* the season of the year when i many careless farmers will lose eat j tie from bloat. They will let them i slip into the alfalfa field which is as ! fatal as a gun shot. Twenty mouth | fula of green alfalfa, if it he a little [damp, will kill a cow in twice twen ty minutes. The hungry animals at | this season of the year need watch- J. S. Harriman, the pedestrian, who has undertaken to walk from Wabash, Indiana, to San Francisco, in sixty five days, on a wager of six thousand dollars, arrived at Lamar at seven o’clock last Monday evening. The entire distance is very elose to three thousand miles, and as he made Lamar, which is the half-way station, in twenty-four days, he is confident that he will win the wager and the five thousand dollars wagered on his making the trip in sixty-one days He has a mounted escort of four whose duty it is to see that he doesn’t play “shinanigan,” as the future own ership of eleven thousand dollars de pends on the trip, ilis average time tins far is 5k miles for every hour traveled, and his escorts in keeping up with him have left four horsrs by tho wayside to furnish food for car rit'll crow. Mr. Harriman appears to be a gen tleman and a scholar who never tells a lie nor eats pie with a knife; thus setting a gloiiou* example for the boys of the rising generation who asgiye to reach such high pinacle of fame or to gain riches without work.

YOUTHFUL CRIMINALS. Extraordinary Brutality Exercised by a Boy Murderer. AN AGED MAN KILLED FOR MONEY. Crime Among tho Children of France and America.— Peculiarly Constructed Vordict by a Foreign Jury. 0120.000 criminals arrested in Paris in the course of tlic year—the figure itself seems in credibly large—l6,ooo had not attained the ago of twenty. There Is Just now an epidemic of crimes of violence perpetrated by young men. and If the thieves and assassins confined io i French prisons were sorted according to their age, it would be found that tho very large ma‘ Jo Ity were made up of youths between sixteen and twenty. These statistics were supplied by the prosecuting counsel in the last Judicial sen' sat ion that has come before the Paris courts, and tho course of the trial supplied the explan ation of the fact. It was a murder case of ex traordinary brutality. The victims were an old woman of seveuty-elght and her lodger, the organist of the parish church, an old man of seventy. The criminal was the son of the par ish beadle, and the motive for tho murder was mere theft. The house was broken into at night, the old man struck down and left for dead on the staircase, and then the old woman brutally murdered. The hoardings of both— a few hundred franca—were Carried off, and the tliltr arrested the same day with the money in his possession and his clothes stained with blood. At the trial it was proved that a long career of crime culminated in this horrible and mercenary outrage—the evidence was con vincing, and the jury found the murderer “Guilty with extenuating circumstances." To American readers the verdict seems incon ceivable. Even for French readers It has to be explained, and the explanation adds to the difficulty. The prisoner was only eighteen. lie had long, fair hair, blue eyes, and the face of a young girl. No wonder the French prisons are full of young criminals. There are criminals in America in almost every walk of life. Crim inals in tho church, in our homes and In busi ness.
