The meeting at the Christion church,
at Shelbyville for three weeks, closed
last Saturday night with 95 additions.
The meeting was conducted by Rev. E.

The Brotherhood of Railway Train
men of Chicogo wants its members to
have more privileges on the Sabbath and
is making an effort to have Sunday labor
penalized by increasing the wages fur it.
About 100 allied trades in Chicago this
rule has already been adopted and has
succeeded in reducing Sunday labor
to a minimum.
The Rev. Dr. Henry E. Dosker, of the
Presbyterian Theological Seminary, in
Louisville, has for some time been con

"The general adoption of total absti

for me to buy in.

I pay for it.
Because my home merchant will take
care of me should I run short of
Because some part of every dollar I
spend at home stays at home and helps
work for the welfare of tha town and
Because the home merchant I buy
from stands back of his goods, thus al

Because if ill luck, misfortune or be
reavement comes, the merchant I buy
from is here with his kindly expression

needed, his pocketbook.

Longest Railroad Run.
I see in your columns that a claim is
made by a B. & O. special train to a
world's record for the longest non-stop
run. the figures being 190 miles in three
hours and 55 minutes, or 43.7 miles per
hour. This is nowhere near the daily
performance of the 10:30 a. m. train on
the Great Western Railway of England
London to Plymouth, 225 miles, in 4
hours and 7 minutes, without a stop, or
54.6 miles an hour. The last 30 miles
are over a very hilly road. Some years
ago the mileage from London to Ply
mouth (Great Western) was longer by
21 miles and these 246 miles were cover
ed without stop every week day at about
the same speed as the present run. .
Keeping Boys on The Farm.
At the National Farmers' Congress the
chief problem was held to be keeping
the boys on the farms. It will come
about when the farms are made more at
tractive to the boys. The mistake of
those who give advice in this matter is
their suggestion that the farmers's boy
work bard all day and read agricultaral
literature at night, gaining his enter
tainment from sombre bulletins and re
orts. If the boy is worth his salt, he
has a right desire for the joys of life. If
he cannot have recreation near bis own
home, he will go where he can get it.
priticise it as we may, this is an amuse
ment-loving age, and the desires of the
farmer's boy are as natural as those of
other youth. To leave this faot out of
the discussion is to miss its vital point.
Boys will not stay on the farms if they
are supposed merely to plod and vege
tate there. They want to move about
and see things.

Fault of Farmer If Stock Falls to

It isn't the fault of your stock if

you have not let him. If the calf gets

colt is wild and shy, is it his fault or
yours? If the lamb Is a scabby, tlcky,

the lamb. If the chickens mope around
with wings trailing, sit in judgment
on their keeper.
The pig will use every opportunity
for growth you offer. See bow Quickly
he finds and uses a hole In the fence
so he can get greener pasture. The
calf will grow into a prime baby beef
or fine dairy cow If you give the op
portunity. The colt will be fearless

sights. Give him the opportunity to
see the world while yet a youngster.
The lamb will be a frisky ball of wool

the things that pester him. Give him
a fair show. The chicks will grow
into morning crows and cackle In a
short time if they have a decent
place to live in and are given the op

Salt and Water Essential.
The protection of breeding ewes
from falling snow Is important, espe
cially is it important when it falls in
the form of rain. Winter rains and
also sleet are always cold. If sheep
of the open-wooled breed are long ex
posed to these they may do great
harm. The closed-wool breed, as the
merinos, will be harmed much less,
as the water cannot readily enter the
wool that they carry. The shelter
provided up to the lambing season
may be of the simplest kind, providing
it will protect from storms and rains.
The aim should be to give the
breeding ewes large liberty In winter.
