RESCUERS STICK FAST Innocent-Appearing Puddle That Looked Like Chalk Water Is Cause of Strange and Undignified Proceedings at Cleveland. Cleveland, O. —It’s horribly embar rassing for a young woman, all dressed up in the kind of togs that make East er Sunday famous, to slip and fall in the street —right in front of a crow’d of grinning people. My, how one’s dig nity goes all to smash! Naturally one’s first thought is to pick oneself up. Now, that’s exactly what Miss Ade laide Lieberling tried to do. But she couldn’t. Rescuers at first couldn t pick her up, either. She fell In a puddle of what looked like chalk water at East Fourth street and High avenue while she was hur rying to her work. Stuck Like Flies. To her dismay she found she was stuck fast. The harder she tried to get up the faster she stuck. Her companion, Miss Lottie Weber, tried to help her. “Glue!” cried the crowd, pausing to enjoy itself. Patrolman Hoff and M. L. Snod grass of 1843 East Eighty-seventh street went to the rescue. They got She Found She Stuck Fast. their feet in the strange white glue and they stuck like flies on a sheet of flypaper. At length the rescue was accom plished. at the expense of a brand new suit, hat and shoes. Miss Lieberling sought refuge in a nearby storj, while a hurry call brought her sister Irene with a complete new wardrobe. SHE TRUSTED THE MINISTER But When, the Awakening Came She Threw an Orange in His Face. Akron, O. —“I thought I could trust a minister, especially when I was en gaged to him.” said Mrs. Zella M.

IS AN ESCORT FOR CORPSES Man in Idaho Has a Mania for Act ing as a Professional Mourner. Boise, Idaho. —Six times during the last 18 months an eastbound Union Pacific train has pulled out of here, bearing a man who apparently takes his pleasure sadly. This peculiar in.-. dividual gratifies an apparent passion for travel by acting as official escort for bodies shipped back East without relatives or friends to accompany them. The man keeps in touch with the various undertaking establishments at Boise, and when occasion permits he offers himself as professional mourn er. He conscientiously looks after all details, as regards flowers, transporta tion and so forth, and even goes to the eastern funeral as one of the honored guests. For such depressing service the man is reimbursed with one first-class ticket to the corpse’s destination. He buys his own meals and pays all other expenses, which include his own fare back to Boise. HOT POKER AWES A PUPIL Young Woman School Teacher Must Pay Fine for Threatening Big Boy. Uniontown, Pa. —Mias Mountain, weighing 115 pounds, must pay ft fine imposed on her by a Smithfield town ship justice because she threatened to use a red hot poker on J. W. Bar ger, age sixteen, and weighing 150 pounds, after he had threatened to duck her in a watering trough. Miss Mountain ordered Barger to write a composition. The pupil re fused, and threatened to carry Miss Mountain outside the school and drop her in the watering trough. The little school mistress locked the doors, pushed a poker into the coals and heated it red hot. “Now will you write that composi tion or take a beating with this poker?" she asked. Barger wrote the composition. His parents had the girl arrested. BIRTHS ALL OVER THE PLACE Farmer Near New Market, Del., Has Exciting Night When Stork Works Overtime. Ellendale, Del. —John Harman ol near New Market, had an exciting time the other night when he was awakened by considerable noise in the barn. Hurriedly donnlngghis clothes, he rushed down to investigate and was greeted with anew colt. He had hardly finished looking it over when a lowing in the stables began, and go ing there he was astonished to find*a pretty 1 title' calf had arrived. At the woodshed he found a whole nest of lit tle bird-dog pups, and on returning to Ms room was astonished to find that his wife had presented him with a bouncing baby boy in his absence. Bigger Than Big Father. Iron Ridge, Wls.—Herman Miller, a farmer, weighs 285 pounds, but his son, Walter, sixteen years of age, tips the scales at 295, and is as strong and healthy as he is big. The father is 5 feet 11, and the son 5 feet 10. They ride around Dodge county together in the father’s automobile when not too busy on the farm. Walter enjoys noth ing so much as pitching bundles of com at silo-filling time like ordinary big men pitch grain. CANNOT AFFORD TO BE WITHOUT SILO ] Pit Silo Nearing Completion. (By H. D. FLOWERS, Downs, Kan.) My neighbor, M. V. Kenyon, and I, each dug a pit silo last summer. We worked together and hired no help, doing cement work all ourselves, there by cutting the cost to the least pos sible figure. Mine is 8 by 24 feet, and Mr. Ken yon’s 8 by 31 feet, both being located in the driveway of our barns, which makes It convenient in feeding. We first dug a trench 8 by 24 Inches, cir cle eight feet in diameter, and used this as a form, fl|llng It with cement and reinforcing with wire. This col lar, which extends below frost line, prevents freezing and cracking of cement below. We then dug out in sections of a depth of about six feet and plastered with two coats of two to one cement (about two Inches thick), which makes a good solid wall, and when this was almost set, put on with a whitewash brush a coat of pure cement and water to make it water proof, Also plastered the bottom the same as the wall. We plastered in these sections so as not to have to build scaffolding. Hoisted Dirt With Hay Track. By having the two silos to work on at the same time, no time was lost in waiting for cement to harden, as we could dig on one while cement was setting in the other. We hoisted the dirt in a box two feet square, with a door In the bottom of box which could be tripped by pulling a rope fastened to a spring catch. This box was raised and lowered by a common hay track and carrier and dumped in a wagon Just outside of the barn door. We kept the walls straight by the use of a plumb-bob and evened the surface of them to make a good, smooth founda tion for plastering, with a knife fas tened to a rod in the center of the silo to keep it round and true. I cov ered mine with two-inch hard pine, making a door four feet square in this floor, which is strong enough to drive a load over. Cost Very Little to Construct. We filled our silos the second week in September with badly burned and dried corn fodder with no corn on it. CULTIVATION IN AN ORCHARD Trees, Like Animals, Get Thirsty and Must Have Water—Orchard Ist Must Supply It. -- - V (By O. W. RAPP, Department of Horti culture, Oklahoma A. and M. College.) Trees as well as animals get thirsty. The difference is that animals can sat isfy their own wants while trees are dependent upon cultivation. As long as there Is plenty of rain no tree suf fers, but as soon as + be weather be comes warm and dry great quantities of water are pumped from the soil. A big tree requires barrels of water. Whether or not it can get it may mean a good crop or a poor one. In man) cases during the past few years it has meant the life or death of the orchard. Water is a necessity and the orchard -Ist must supply It. Every gallon evap orated from the soil during a year means a monetary loss. Every weed is cheating the tree out of just so much precious moisture. Clean and thorough orchard cultivation is essen tial to successful orcharding. During the spring and summer months the or chard ground should be stirred every two weeks. A better rule Is to stir the ground after each rain, and as often In between as is needed. Such cultivation will be more than repaid by the quantity and quality of fruit, and, most important of all, in the length of life of the trees. ATTENTION TO SITTING HENS Constant Fight Against Lice and Mites Is Only Sure Way of Getting Rid of Pests. Give constant attention to sitting hens for lice and mites. A constant fight against these pests Is the only satisfactory remedy. The sitting hen should be dusted at least three times during the hatch and it will be well to apply a drop of lard or other grease to the tops of the chicks’ heads when they are taken from the nesL ATTENTION TO BABY CHICKS Keep Water Dlshee Thoroughly Not the Runs to Become Dusty. Keep the water dishes thoroughly cleansed for the baby chicks and they should also be arranged so the chicks cannot get their feet in them. Do not allow the runs, where the little chicks are cotfined to become too dry and dusty. Spray with a disinfectant oc casionally* Striped Melon Beetlea Look out for the striped melon beetles. Fine soil, air-slaked lime, to bacco dust or insect powder dusted on the plants will repel them but the best method of protection is the use of muslin covers. Keep High Grade Cows. Where hay is high priced it does no|. pay to buy it to feed any but higp grade dairy cows. The farmer whqito* herd is bigger than his hay crop seldom afford to keep any low grade an 1 male. , THE SEA COAST ECHO. BAY ST. LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI putting in a liberal supply of water Mr. Kenyon and I bought a No. 16 en silage cutter and hired an engine tc run it. I opened my silo February 5, taking off about eighteen Inches of spoiled en silage, and have so far found the feed to be in excellent condition and much better than when put In. Have fed out about five feet, taking out about four inches per day for 21 head of cattle, horses and mules. Think it the best feed I ever fed. As there is no corn in the ensilage, I feed corn chop with it, pouring the chop over the ensilage. The stock all like it and eat it all up clean; they also run on good wheat pasture during the day. My silo cost, for lumber for door, $8.90; cement, S7O; track and carrier, $6.50; rope, $4.50; box, $0.50. Total, $30.40. Pit Silos Are Best. In my opinion pit silos are better than any other kind f|)r dry sections. * jlili JjL ; ~.}y I Starting Foundation. because of wooden ones drying out and having to be repaired. And the way I have mine arranged I think they are just as convenient as the ones built above the ground, as I use the same track and carrier and box for hoisting the feed as we did for the dirt. There is Just one thing the matter, one calls for another, so we are commencing on another for Mr. Kenyon and expect to dig another one in my also. MAKE FARMS YIELD PROFITS Little of Everything and Not Much of Anything Is Poor Idea of Diversification. In most cases where studies of the profits In farming have been made, particularly In our oldest agricultural districts, such studies indicate that the most successful farms are those which have from two to four major sources of income, i. e., they have a well-balanced and diversified business. In certain instances it may pay bet ter to have only one enterprise, but usually when one crop pays much bet ter than all others, the production of it increases rapidly and soon the price falls to the point where other crops or products are equally as profitable. Diversified farming is often con fused farming, where there is a little of everything and not much of any thing. Either extreme lessens the chances of success. When the price of certain crops is very low, then live stock usually becomes desirable. However, if the returns of an animal are poor, cash crops, even at a low price, are essential. A well-balanced business Insures against losses and provides a much better utilization of the labor and equipment. MOST INDEPENDENT FARMERS Those That Raise Bread, Meat and Vegetables for Table and Sell Surplus. The most Independent farmers are those that raise their own bread and meat, plenty of fruits and vegetables for the table, can the surplus and sell enough produce to meet their ex penses. It Is then an easy matter to plant a crop for the cash Income or raise a few animals for market Cotton is an excellent money crop, but a very poor credit crop. It takes too much cotton to pay debts, but a few acres will go a long way when no debts are owed. LESPEDEZA HAS WIDE RANGE Plant Is at Its Best in Cotton-Growing States, Where it Has Advantage of Long Season. Lespedeza has a wide range of dis trlbutlon and may be found growing wild over all the states south of the Ohio river and east of central Texas and Oklahoma.

A tight-fisted old man, feeling very sick, asked a friend to recommend a physb ian. The friend named a cer tain specialist. “Is he very expensive,” asked the sick man. “Well, not so very. He’ll charge you four dollars for the first visit and two dollars for each one after that.” The old fellow soon afterward walked Into the office of the physician named by his friend, and upon being admitted to the consulting room planked down two dollars, remarking: “Well, doctor, here I am again.” The physician calmly picked up the money and put it in a drawer, which he locked securely. The sick man looked on expectantly, awaiting the next move. “Well, I’m ready to be examined,” he said at length.” “I don't think it’s necessary,” re plied the shrewd specialist. “There’s no need tc do it again.

The tramp and the statesman were seen to talk earnestly together for some time. Then their hands met —a piece of money plainly passed between them—and the tramp stepped jauntliy away. “Well, did you land him?” a con gressman asked the tramp. “No,” the tramp answered cheer fully. “No; I gave him a quarter to ward his splendid national prepared ness campaign.” Investigate the Onion, The homely onion has been the sub ject of an inquiry by a British com mittee whose duty was to go into the matter of Its high cost.
