DON'T SPRAY NOW
As tho season for fruit bloom is at
hand, a word of caution should be
spoken in regard to spraying opera
tions. In spite of the fact that all
spray calenders giye yery explicit
directions tor this work, it is often
brought to our attention that some
spraying is done while trees are in
bloom. No spray material whatever
should be applied at thiB time. It is
not only iojurious to the vital parts ot
the (lower, but means death to any
bees or other insetts which may visit
the blossoms of trees sprayed at this
time. It is usually well understood
how necessary bees are for pollinating
purposes, nnd the proper development
of fruit, and to destroy them in this
manner works a hardship, not only to
the bee-keepers but to tho orchardiBts
Again, do not Bpray your trees
while in bloom. Nothing is accom
plished by spraying at this time.

CIRCUIT COURT DECISIONS.
In the matter of the application of
the L. E. B. G. & N. Ry, Co. to as
certain the mode and manner to cross
the tracks of tho C. H. & D. and con
demnation of property, there was a
finding for the plaintiff at its costB.
Motion for a new trial was submitted
and overruled; exceptions.
The judgment of the court of com
mon pleas was confirmed in the case
of Hubbard S. Woodbury vs. Frod J.
Bollmeyer & Co. et al. This was the
case in which judgment tak
en on a cognovit note was contested
by one of the defendants on the
ground that his name, J. H. Sherwood
had been forged to the note. The
court held with Sherwood. The case
was full of interest from the fact that
Sherwood is a brother of Congress
man Sherwood and tho further fact
that the wife of Bollmeyer, whose hus
band made the note, is the daughter
of the contesting defendent.
In the appeal case of A. J . Steele
ys. the Ohio Oil Co.. the appeal was
dismissed on motion of tho plaintiff
at his coots. The court touched up
on an interesting point of tho trust
question in the above case, in which
tho common pleas court decision was
affirmed. The plaintiff raised as one
of the grounds to restrain the defend
ant from drilling oil wells on forty
acres of land in this county that the
defendant was a trust The decision
of tho court holding with tho defend
ant was to the effect that no contraot
which is in itself local is effected by
possible guilt of one of the parties
of some violation of law.
The case of Elizabeth Megginson
vs. Howard Richardson saw the lower
court decision affirmed and the costs
assessed against the plaintiff. The
plaintiff sued defendant in justice
court for $6 for failuro to cut weeds
and got judgment. The higher
court held that sho was not entitled
to this because she had released her
