Thp publication of a column from a newspaper published in 1873, in last weeks Record, gave rise to a rumor that cholera was prevalent in Lancas ter. Such a thing is preposterous, and was evidently started by some un thoughted person who did not observe very closely what he was reading, and did not take particular pains as to what he was telling. It is pretty safe to predict that there will never be another epidemic of cholera in Lan caster, the observance of the modern rules of sanitation preclude the pos sibility of such a thing, and the ar ticle taken from a paper of the long ago was simply published as a curiosity. A Tornado. A terrible wind storm, which attained cyclonic propotions and which was accompanied by rain and lightning swept over Lancaster Friday night, do ing much damage by unrooting barns, blowing down chimneys, putting telephone, telegragh and electric poles and wires out of commission. The storm seemed to have reached the height of its fury about five oclock when lightning struck the large brrn of Carson Goverjabout five miles from Lan caster on the Rush Branch pike. The barn caught fire and burned to the ground, destroying 17 mules, 9 horses, 4 jennets, 2 jacks, 4 cows and 2 hogs, be sides hay and farming implements. The loss is about $6,000 with no insurance. The loss is a heavy one and Mr. Gover has the sympathy of friends in both Lincoln and Garrard Counties.

METAL BOTTLE TOP REMOVER Ordinary Table Fork Will Perform I Operation With Neatness and Ols i patch Knife Also Used. Everybody Is familiar with the lit tle metal tops used on bottles. But the general opinion is that a top can not be removed without the aid of a specially designed opener. A Phila delphia man was recently confronted with the problem of removing one of these tops without the official instru ment. This is the way he did it: He took an ordinary table fork and placed one of the outside tinea be neath theedge of the cap. He then Metal Top Remover. took a knife and inserted the end of the blade between the other outside tine and the center one. By pressing down on the knife handle he secured just the upward pull on the edge of the crown top that is needed to dis lodge it An ingenious and simple substitute. GOOSE LAYING SEASON HERE Advisable to Start Upon Small Seals and Run Two Geete With Each Gander Get Early Eggs. One of the best seasons for pur chasing geese is during the latter part of the year, for then the birds have a chance to settle down properly be fore the laying season, which in the case of geese begins at" the end of January. It Is advisable to start upon a small scale and to run two geese to each gander. They should be housed in roomy, dry floored quar ters that are well ventilated without being draughty. Use dry straw as lit ter and renew frequently. When the birds are of the right type the young usually take after them in this respect, but to assure size it is necessary that early eggs be produced, for unless the young are hatched early they have no time to develop before the cold days are en countered. The WAV tn nrnriiira oat-lv eggs is to see that the brfds are well fed during the autumn, a time when much of the natural food picked up Is apt to be short of nutriment. ONE PRACTICE IS WASTEFUL By Burning Corn Stalks Farmer Is De- stroylng His Land Much Benefit In Plowing Under.. (By B. B. LARA.) It always makes me feel sad to see the smoke rising from the burning corn stalks In the field, because the farmer is burning up hfs land and doesn't know it How can we expect to burn up stock which the soil pro duces and put nothing back in the way of humus and then hope to keep our soil in good condition? Maybe I'm wrong when I say that farmers do not know what they.'re doing, for doubtless some of them do know that It is a bad practice, but burning stalks is easier than discing or cutting them up and they are a nuisance to plow under. Some farmers say there is no benefit in plowing under stalks, but 1 cannot figure it out that way because I do not see how wo can go on rob bing our soil and keep up the fertility. It costa very little to keep a sheep end a flock of 0 sheep la worth money- !. 1; ! Anderson METHOD OF STOPPING LEAKS Concrete-Waterproofing Work Is De scribed by Correspondent of the Engineering Record. The method of stopping leaks in I concrete, described by a correspond- ant of the Engineering Record, con sists in plastering the wet, leaking surface of the concrete with water proofed mortar. The mortar 1b kept from being washed away by suitable bracing against a properly constructed gasket. Assuming that a leak is to be re paired in a basement wall, Fig. 1, one foot or more above the floor, the loose material should be scraped or dug away, leaving a saucer-shaped cavity as large in diameter as neces sary. If the holes through which the water Is leaking are large enough they can be stopped with plugs cov ered with patches of burlap driven in tightly. The form is then prepared. In case the diameter of the saucer-shaped hole Is sis Inches, a board, A, Fig. 2, two inches thick and eight inches square, will be required. A one-fourth-inch twisted-burlap rope, B, is tacked on the board and the latter 1 nailed to a brace C. Enough one-to-two mortar, water proofed, is prepared, to which has been added, just before leaving the mixing box, bichromate of soda to the amount of one or two per cent, of the cement. This Is added to make the mortar quick setting. The mortar is placed on the board in a cone-shaped mass and then thrust quickly and firmly with a twisting motion into the cavity. The brace is driven into place at the same' time. The process is illustrated In Fig. 3. The twisting motion aids in forcing the mortar Into the smallest crevices and drives away such parts of the mortar as may have been squeezed out between the con crete and the gasket. A very simple application of the method is shown In Fig. 4. A more difficult application, but not Imprac ticable, is one where It is desired to Concrete Work. plaster large areas. A little experi ence and patience makes the matter easy. A good waterproofing mixture is made as follows: Concentrated lye, one-third pound; powdered alum, three-fourths pound, which should be mixed in one gallon of water at least one hour before using. All of this mixture is used to one sack of cement, and is poured in at the same time as the water used to temper the mortar. Garden oa Tarm Notes Have you a good crop rotation on your farm? Success In farm work depends large ly on knowing how. A silo is kept air tight so that the silage will not spoil. Sorghum hay properly cured is a good roughage for horses and cattle. Much garden soil seems to need lime, and probably a complete ferti lizer. The best and cheapest way to fight Insects Is by a good, efficient rotation of crops. A well established alfalfa field should graze from fifteen to twenty pigs per acre. Corn-husking time is when tonics to aid digestion are out of sight and out of mind. It is best to build a round silo, be cause in the square silos the silage spoils easier. Corn fodder that is dry and dusty will be Improved a little by SDrln- gllng in the mangers. If you want to be really up to date. sweep down the ceilings of your sta bles and whitewash them. Sweet sorghums are more palatable and therefore relished better by both horses and cattle than corn stover. afvc '' it tanes a uieiiow soil to grow corn, and you can make the soli mellow before planting time by plowing now. While considerable Is known about the value and use of alfalfa for graz ing, much remains to be determined. In pasturing alfalfa it must never be overstocked, as the animals will Injure the crowns and the plants will die. Sorghum seeds ground have been found to be worth about ten per cent, less than corn for milk making pur poses. For best results tho alfalfa pas ture must be mowed at least three times a year because at certain times it begins new growth from the root. Clean Fence Corners. Fence corners full of dead weeds make fine hibernating places for all kinds of bugs which will get busy with jour crop in the spring. ; Record of the Weather.

"We gave him a little free reading notice and he is sore." I "I should think he would be 1 pleased?" "Well, you see, it was this way: . The article was written to read Our representative called to see Mr. Soandso yesterday, and found his yards well stocked with coal. While Mr. Soandso Is on the job, there Is no danger of a fuel famine.' " "Nothing wrong about that" "No, but the linotype made 'fuel famine' read 'fool famine." " Why Consider Them? "I think the school teachers In this town ought to get more money than they do." "What put that kind of an idea in your head?" "Why should we expect the people who are educating our children to work for $70 or $80 a month, when we pay our chauffeurs at least $100 and furnish them with board and lodging besides?" "But what does school teachin' amount to, anyhow? Look at most of the teachers. They ain't got nothln' but education." Needed Only One More. The clock struck the hour, and the university chimes pealed forth on the early morning air. Rambo had been making a night of it, but was on his way home, with some assistance from Baldwin. Feeling in his pocket for a stray coin, he started up the steps of the University building. "What now?" asked Baldwin. "I dunno w'at s'loon this Is," he mumbled, "but Its music m'chlne's all rt', an' I need Jes' one more drink !'" PROGRESS. "Who taught you to skate?" "Well, last year George taught me The year before it was Charlie, and the year before that I taught my self." A Certainty.
