The terrible boatings shown on the bodies and the trussing of .both was merely "to be sure they were dead," according to the alleged confession, which in part folows: "Asmus waited in the car outside my house at the curbing while 1 went inside with Daugherty. I told him I would give him the money in the parlor. "When I got to the parlor I drew a pistol. He just held up his hands. I guess he thought I was going to rob him. "I pulled out the handcuffs with one hand and told him to hold out his hands ne at a time. All the time I kept him covered with the gtm. lie looked like a powerful man and I wasn't going to give him a chance. 1 took him to the base ment. "When we got down the stairs I took the baseball bat in one hand, but I kept him covered with the pistol so that he coulctn t move. turn around, I said. He started to turn.

He did a few moments later and I went through the same thing I did with the other fellow. "After I had them both killed I waited until dark, and put Asmus in a hole in the ranige.

The prac tice of shipping monthly, semi-monthly and bi-weekly periodicals by mail instead of by freight will be re-established Octo ber 1, l'ostmaster-tJeneral Hays an nounced yesterday. 1'esides speeding up delivery to subscribers the statement said it would be possible by handling the periodicals in the regular space and with the regular force and equipment, to vave approximately $2tS.OOO annually. "When the freight shipment plan was adopted in 1!)11," the statement explains, "mails were handled entirely on n weight basis, and the difFerenco in cost of trans portation by freight and bv passenger trains resulted in a material saving for the government. Since that time the basis 'of railway pay has been changed to the space method, and transporta tion charges by freight have steadily in creased. Mnce conditions are now the re verse of what they were in 1011, with little difference in the cost of transporta tion between freight and 'mail train, and an added expense for handling these jer iod Seals' outside the regular equipment, together with the fact that the 1'fcight shipment plan offer inferior service, we can no longer defend this method of handling periodicals..'

The total production . of milk on farms in the L'nited states during the calendar year I'.)W, according to the' 14th "census, 'was 7,t05,2.'i8,Ky uallons. 1'he estimated to tal production for UH.'i), as given in the I.'th census reports, was 7,h0',4ttU,:84 gai ions. In 1919 there were 707,000,402 "pounds of butter made on taruis in the l'nited States, as compared with 99ii3i,ilU I omuls in 10O9, representing a decrease of I'Sti.OS-t.lUbt pounds, or 28.9 per cent. Ibis decrease is mainly due to the fact that the making of butter is being rap idly transferred from the farms to fac tories. There were six states in 1919 which reported over .'),O00,tH)O pounds of but ter : made on farms, as follows: Texas, J91-tf)5)l.f52 pounds; Pennsylvania, HS.-ttiS,-007 iounis; Tennessee, 37,lUt,'Kl pounds; Kentucky, 34,nSD,41.'t pounds; Ohio, :;),2t4,2ti.l pounds; and -Georgia. ;;!.'2."7,1.".' pounds. The quantity of cheese made on farms in 301 j1 was t,:57l;l9(i pound, while in 199 the farm production of chwse was G,40,vvo4 .pounds. There was thus a decrease of 3,ft;M,4t5S pounds, or 32.3 per cent eau'inss the decade. Only a very small per cent of the total produc tion of cheese is made on farms. There were 2,529,3oS,GoS gallons of milk sold from farms in the United States in 1919, against IJM7?Ji5Mi gal lons in 1909, representing an increase of 592.124,774 gallons, or oOC prr cent.

And no one eanie, and he settl"d down to feel the bur dock on his head and smell catnip tea that he had a faint memory of taking against his will. St Somehow all of my memories of boy jijijhood ills are associated with catnip. camphor, balm of gilead and paregoric.

A boy that had a cold then came pretty near iloing as he was told, if it were -serious enough to make him act "tired." We never heard about temperature: but I oppose we had it then as now.
