Light Plant Improvement
The Clay City light plant has
placed an order for another gen
erating unit to supplement' the
machinery now installed. Stor
age batteries will also be con
nected up to care for the service
in case of generators going down
or engine trouble. They will al
so be used in case of any tempo
rary overload, and will be used
without connection with genera
tor for day current and late at
night service. This means con
tinuous service, day and night.
When this machinery is install
ed, it will cive three times the
capacity that is now in use. The
presen. Hat rate will of necessity
be discontinued, and meters in
stalled where the service is used.
The minimum charge will be 20
and 25 cents per drop instead of
the present, fiat rate of ."0 and Xi
The voltage will be 1 10, stand
ard, same as is used in the cities.
This will enable consumers o f
current to use up their minimum
consumption in the operation of
sweepers, irons, percolators,
toasters, fans, washing machines,
power motors etc.
The lines will be extended to
all parts of the town just so soon
as the business in the extreme
sections will justify. When the
line is completed to the exterior
portions of the cit v, 220 volts will
be available as well as 110.

The Times as Judge

contest articles' written by 8th
grade punils of Stanton College,
and asks The Times to judge the
lipst one and publish it. Having
the space this week, The Times

articles were about the same in
merit, and it wax hard to decide

A Hike No. 2
The Stanton College Agricul
ture class visited two farms, ac
companied by Mr. II. II. Harrison,
Mr. A. J. Martin, Mr. and Mrs.
L. O. Knox and little son Leon,
We started at 1 o'clock Friday
afternoon in three cars. The lirst
place we visited was Mr. T. C.
Hall's at Kosslyn.
There we saw a bis field sowed
in rye, and the elTect of tiling
which Mr. Hall had put in the
ground to drain a pond of water
that stood on the field. The wat
er is now drained and the rye is
Then we came to a clover field
that Mr. Hall had treated with
lime. He began around the field
and when he came near the cen
ter the lime gave out, so the out
er part of the field had much bet
ter clover than the center. There
are eight acres of this field, and
forty hogs fed upon it all sum
mer, and six yearling steers until
Soon we visited the wheat field
which had a very pretty color.
Mr. Harrison showed us how the
wheat would stool. It is very in
teresting to hear him name the
different parts of the wheat stalk.
He told us how the roots would
tike in water and food for the
plant to crow on.
Mr. Ball expects to have this
field in wheat two years to be
hogged down, and then in clover
one year which wiil be plowed
under and planted in coin the
He has about forty acres of
mountain land and one hundred
ami fifteen acres of bottom land.
Next we 6aw his hogs, two of
which were Poland China, the
largest one weighing about six
We saw the ico house which is
very convenient to the milk
house, which is just below so as
the ice melts it will run down in
the milk house through pipes.
Last of all we looked over the
house that contains about nine or
ten rooms, which are furnished
with gas lights, gas stove, and
phone. There is a front porch
up stairs and down, a back porch
which has a cement floor.
Mr. Hall expects to build a cis
tern at the back of the house on
the hill 6ide so he can have water
up stairs by gravity.
On our leave from Mr. Hall's
we saw the rock crsuher which
he uses to crush lime stone rock
to put ou his fields.
Mr. Hall sure has a fine and
convenient farm and Mrs. Hall ii
a nice clever lady and the Stan
ton College Agriculture Class
gives her the reputation of being
a fine house keeper. This farm
is worth while to visit.
Our next farm to visit was Mr.
A. J. Martin's about a mile below
