M. Duthie. W. C. T. U. Column. Virginia Green, Editor. Hon. C. W. Trickett, assistant attor ney-general of Kausas, furnishes the fol lowing facts concerning the closing of saloons in Kansas City, Kansas: "This city is the metropolis of Kansas, with a population of about 100, 000. The inhabitants are largely wage earners and represent every nationality. We are located on the border, only an invisible line separating us from Kan sas City, Mo. The city ranks fifth in the list of manufacturing citiea of the United States. "One year ago there were 256 saloons in this county, 200 gambling dens and about 00 houses of social evil. Today there is not a saloon, no open gambling den, nor a disorderly house. It is the largest city in the world without these dens of vice, and as we have now existed about twelve months without them, it affords r living example of the tact that a large city can grow and prosper w ith out Buch evils. "At the commencement of the con test a large number of our people thought it would ruin business and de stroy our prosperity, but it has stimu lated business in alllines. "Our population has increased at a greater rate than ever before. "The deposits in our banks have gained by one and one-half millon dol lars. "The merchants upon our streets have had to employ additional clerks. "The attendance in our public schools has increased largely, and we have to employ eighteen additional teachers, and the teachers inform us that this increase is largely of boys and girls of from 12 to 16 year of age, who, prior to the closing of the saloons, were compelled to assist in supporting the family, by reason of the father spending his wages for drink. "The charitable institutions report a reduction of more than two-thirds in the deajand for aid. The juvenile court, which has the care of dependeni chil dren, has had but two applications in the past eight months, while prior to the closing of the joints from eight to 88 children required aid and assistanefe each mouth. "Prior to the closing of the joints we sent from 15 to 54 young men to the re formatory every year. In the twelve months since closing we have sent but two. "The expenses for prosecuting crim inals have been reduced $25,000 per an Expetises for the police have num. been reduced much more. "For the first time in 25 years the court of common pleas of this county opened its term the first Monday in May without a criminal case. "The city courts, created for the ex press purpose of trying petty suits, for the collection of rents and grocery bills, black and formerly crowded with docket every day, have practically no business, for the reason that the people are paying their bills instead of being sued for them. "A year ago this city was trying to a devise ways and means to spare the to build additions to our city money jails. Today the doors of the jails swing idly upon their hinges, and we have no use for those we have. "One year ago, not to exceed two business men on the principal thorough fares of this city would have favored the closing of saloons. Today there are not two who would favor opening them. "Twice since the saloons wero closed have held a city election at which \ »• the issue was presented to the people, and at each election the people have in dorsed present condi ions. Every bank is loud in praise of the present civic The city is clean, crime is at situation. a minimum, merchants prosperous, real estate advancing. "This city is now the experimental station of the world. If Kansas City, Kan., can close its saloons and keep them closed, and if the closing produces prosperity, happiness and contentment, Farm to Rent A well-improved timbered farm ~to rent on Texas ridge.

Wiswell, Pullman, Wash. then it is reasonable to assume tba' such results will follow a like policy in the larger cities " How to Remain Young. *To continue young in health and strength, do as Mrs N. F. Rowan, Donough, Ga, did. She says. Three bottles of Electric Bitters cured me of chronic liver and stomach trouble, comp licated with such an unhealthy condition theJdood that my skin turned red a» llaniiA I am now practically 20 years voimger than before I took Electric Bit ters I can now do all my work . with ease and assist in my husband s store Guaranteed at Johnssn's Drug btore. Price 50c. of Light Brahma« For Profit. Properly fed and cared for, there are no better winter layer* than the Light Brahma pullets or yearling hens. They lay a large egg of a rich brown color. A pullet belonging to the writer, says Michael K. Boyer of Karin Journal, laid 100 eggs from Jan. 1 to June 1, and In her second season laid eighty eggs In that time. For the entire year as a pullet she laid fully 200 eggs. The exact amount we do not have, as she did not lay In a trap nest the entire year. At eight to ten weeks of age Brah mas make choice broilers weighing a |K)und and a quarter to a pound and a half each. At four to five months of uge they are first class roasting fowls. Good Mash Mixtures. There are several good mixtures for mashes. One Is nlxmt equal parts of eornmeal and wheat bran with a small amount of flour middlings. The exact proportion must be determined by the quality of the different Ingredients. The object Is to get a fairly rich mash that Is not doughy. Neither do you want one that ts too light. Another fairly good mash Is what Is known ns ground provender, which Is oats and corn ground together. All mashes should be salted. When Leghorn»'Should Lay. Five months Is not too young for a Leghorn to begtu to lay regularly. Eight months Is too late. There is something wrong with the stock or handling when Leghorn pullets wait so Jong as that. Five mouths Is earlier than the general average, but at six to seven months a flock of Leghorn pul lets should be full grown and ready for business. Grit and Lime For Fowl«. It Is well to keep grit and lime In the form of oyster shells within reach of the chickens all the time. It Is true In a country like ours they can gather pleuty of grit from the flelds, but it Is a matter of convenience to keep it about the house where the hens can get at it. We are pleased to notice that many writers are coming back to tbe old Cochins and mentioning them as most valuable for producing market poultry, says tbe Feather. One writer slates that he yet fosters several hundred of the old Yellow Cochins of the kind that lay so many eggs. Another states that he uses Partridge Cochins exclu sively for the production of winter eggs and dressed poultry for market, always caponlzlng the cockerels and gaining a good profit from tlielr sale In January. Many persons are pleased to admit the Cochin fowls as valuable for market producing stock, was a time when the-Cochlns stood at the head of the list for market poultry aud eggs. Too many feathers and too much cultivation nlong uonutility lines in them. There I Give tbe pigs a clean pen, with plen ty of water and shade. Burn some cobs to a charcoal aud give the hogs some now and then, helps to keep them healthy. When thoroughbred bogs are kept for breeding purposes, they should be given every chance for growth rather (hau the production of fat. Pull up some weeds aud throw them Into the pen ouce In awhile and H over how the pigs will hurry after them. Weeds taste good to them In the spring. The hog makes better gains on tbe same grain feed than any of our do mestic animals, but the hog cannot use rough forage as well as cattle, horses aud sheep. , Light hogs for bacon are In good and Increasing demand. They make good meat and are more healthy than the excessively fat ones often seen on the sec market. Tigs intended for fattening should be forced for growth early and later give» foods rich In carbonaceous elements that will produce fat and fit them for early market. Get tbe hogs to market when they When they get are properly fitted« heavy and do not eat so readily, they are fitted. When they are fat and up to a good weight, gaiu or weight is put at an Increased cost. A sow that has proved herself to be good breeder should not be fattened and sold so long as her reproductive powers are maintained. Old sows should not be kept over on a unless there Is a good chance of get ting a good litter of pigs, usually good breeders until up to five or six years old.
