To Prevent Smut. Prof. Beatty gave a formula to pre vent smut in grain. It is not very cost ly and absolutely destroys smut. Our farmers should use it. and for that put pose we give it as follows: Use 1 pound of formalin to CO galons of water well mixed and dip tho wheat in it aud let it remain not longer than li hours. Handle the grain in sacks or any way the farmer is prepared to do it most successfully. One pound of form alin to 45 galons of water and the grain to remain in the solution not longer than half an hour is another way to treat tho grain to kill the smut. The formalin costs from 4<Y- to (iOc pet pound. Thus it is seen to be not very expensive treatment K. P. Installation. On Tuesday night of this week the K. of I. lodge installed its officers for the ensuing year. At the close of the installation the membership repaired to the Grand Pacific hotel where its annual banquet was served. Attorney C. V.

The Souvenir number of the Ellens burg Dawn is to hand. It is worth much in showing tlie property of that community, but land from $4(1 to $S0 per is no inducement to any but the rich to go there and they need not be any where. HrO. Turner's picture does him great injustice. He is a plea-ant man and good looking when you see him.— I 'omeroy Independent. A Rare Entertainment. The Slayton Jubilee Singers tilled their date here Friday night. January 3rd, and they did it to the entire satis faction of a crowded house. There is no voice like that of the darkey for good, rich, mellow music, and the members of this aggregation were no exception. In fact, they were rather above tho average. ICncore followed encore, and the re spouse came in a manner that showed not only the appreciation of the troupe, but its love to gratify the desire of an enthusiastic audience. The male quartet found an especially warm spot in the heart of its audience. Three of the male members, in particular, were just bubbling over with fun. Nor was the pianist less skillful in his part than the rest. His instrumental pieces were ex ecuted in a manner beyond crit- I -ism, while his accompaniment to the .singing reminded one of the rippling of the waters, so smoothly and beautifully was it executed, We hope to be furn ished with such a treat often.
