DEFINITION GIVEN
BY DICTIONARY OF
AURORA BOREALIS,
The Aurora Dorcalis, popularly
known as Northern Lights, is defined
by Webster's Dictionary as follows:
A luminous meteoric phenomenon,
visible only at night, and supposed to
be of electrical origin. This species
of light usually appears in streams,
ascending toward. the zenith from a
dusky line or bank, a few degrees
above the northern horizon; when
reaching south beyond the zenith it
forms what js called the corona,
about a spot in the heavens toward
which the dipping needle points.-
Occassionlly the Aurora appears as
an arch of light .across the Heavens
from cast to west. Sometimes it as
sumes a wavy appearance, and the
streams of light arc then called merry
dancers. They assume a variety of
colors, from a pale red to yellow to
a deep red or blood color. Boston

Lalley Light and Power
Saves the Daylight
for Field Work
Every available hour of daylight i needed for actual
production on the farm.
That i one reason why Lalley Light ii considered
such a valuable farm economy.
Its brilliant, steady light lessens the drudge of the
early morning and after-dark chores.
Many farmers do their milking and feeding at night
now that they have Lalley light, thereby saving many
hours of daylight for field work.
Lalley Light with its endless, sure, safe supply of
electric light and power saves time and labor on the
farm, all day, before sun-up and after sun-down.
That is why so many thousands of farmers have found
Lalley electric light and power a necessity.
That is why all Lalley plant owners have found it a
practical money making improvement and an invalu
able home comfort and convenience. )
Let i.3 show how Lalley Light and Power can !o the
same for you ct a cost that will surprise you.

A Tractor Disc Harrow Built to
Meet Exceptionally Severe
Soil Conditions
You can hitch our John
DeereDouble-Action Heavy
Tractor Disc Harrow to your
tractor regardless of the make
of tractor. The clevis on the
tractor hitch is adjustable to
get the correct line of draft on
different height tractor draw
bars. .This Harrow is built
heavy and strong through
out to make it do a good job of
disking under most difficult con
ditions. It is practically all steel
with double-bar gang framed,
well braced and securely riveted.
And the class of work it
does will please you. The
front section is out-throw; the
rear, in-throw. The soil is left
level and well pulverized. The
rear section is connected with a
"goose-neck" ahead of the front
gangs. By using this style of,
connection, the rear section
trails properly at all times. And
this harrow penetrates unusually
satisfactorily because of its
weight, the low tractor hitch
and the low coupling between
the front and the rear gangs.

CHANGES IN NORMAL
COURSES PLANNED.
State Faculties Meet Here to Discuss
New Standard for Teachers.
Louisville, March 25 Proposed
changes in the course of instruction
in Kentucky's two normal schools,
that at Bowling Green and the other
at Richmond, were discussed at a
meeting of the Executive Board of
the two institutions at The S.cclbach
yesterday afternoon. The changes arc
necessary in order that teachers turn
ed out of these normal schools may
pass examinations that will be im
posed within the next four years be
fore "they may receive certificates en
titling them to teach school in Ken
tucky. The standard of efficiency for teach
ers was fixed by the General As
sembly at its recent session, and at
the end of four years only high
school graduates, or those equipped
to pass a high" school examination
will be eligible to teach in the State.
The Evedutive Board is composed
of George Colvin, State Superintend
ent of Public Instruction, the heads
of the two normal schools and others.
A meeting ofvthc Board of Regents
of- thq Western Kentucky Normal
School was held at The Seelbach last
night. Building in progress at the
school was discussed. A new dormi
tory that will accomodate 300 more
students is in course of erection.
Start the season right by getting rid
of the mites. Carbolincum or crude oil
brushed into the cracks of the chicken
house, roosts, etc., will do the job.

DON'T GO TOBACCO CRAZY.
Tobacco prices keep on reaching
new heights and breaking old records.
The farmer who raised a good crop
of good tobacco last year certainly
made money, whatever may have been
the lot of the farmer who grew grain
or fed live stock.
But because this is true, let us .not
lose our sense of proportion or for
get the fundamentals of good farming.
The demand for tobacco is likely to
remain good for a year or two; but
a large increase in the supply is to be
looked for. Many farmers who have
been growing tobacco are planning to
increase their acreage, and the crop
is being planted by many farmers
who have not been growing it. There-
is danger here a big crop might
easily send the price down below the
cost of production.
The farmer who has found tobacco
a good money crop can safely plant
it again this year if he plants it as
a money or surplus crop only. He is
taking a dangerous risk if he plants
so much tobacco that he cannot raise
the wheat and corn, the hay and truck,
the hogs and cattle he needs for his
own use. The only safe farming is
that which makes certain of the farm
er's living first of all; and the farmer
who expects to buy his living out of
the proqeeds of a tobacco .crop is
taking a gambler's chance. Tobacco
in moderation is all right; but this
is no time to go tobacco crazy.

TIME DIFFERENT EGGS
TAKE FOR INCUBATION.
The period of incubation varies with
species of poultry. Hen eggs require
21 days; pheasant, 22 to 24 days;
duck, 28; Muscovy duck, 33 to 35;
turkey, 28; peafowl, 28; guinea, 20 to
28; ostrich, 42; goose, 30 to 34.
Conditions also affect incubation so
that in some cases a hatch may run
one or two days over, due to an ac
cident during incubation or to a low
temperature throughout that period,
while, onMhe other hand, the period
may end earlier. If through any ac
cident the eggs are chilled or over
heated it is adviseable to continue the
iiTitcn, testing the eggs after a few
days lo determine the extent of the
damage say, Department pi Agricul
ture poultry specialists. Chickens have
hatched from eggs left out of the in
cubator all night, as well as from eggs
which have been subjected to a tem
perature of over 110 degree F. for a
short time.
