MARSHALL BEPUBLICAH ':v I I' I ft I A;.. The Soldiers Joke Played Well On n certain day In June, the year 1900, there was almost ns y, much excitement In the city of . 118.1119! I i. ns il i'lUUIIl HUH! the smoking volcano a few miles away had emitted sufficient lavn to overflow the lake In which It la altuated and run into the streets of the ancient Island city Itself. Strange and unusual sights took place la the streets, but the sol dier sward In the city only smiled. Early on this day scores and cores of Chinese, Japanese, Fllll pinos, a fqw Russians and people of other nationalities first were seen, each with a smiling and satisfied countenance, entering some of the banks of the city. Hardly had each entered when he would be seen to emerge, wild eyed and excited. Running in all directions these men, angry and revengeful, went In search of sol diers. Into the face of everyone they met they peered searchlngly. The soldiers smiled knowingly. Once In a while one of the search era would yell "Ah ha, ho him him, he one." after looking closely at a noldler. Hut what was the use, all soldiers in uniform look nlike nnyway. All the soldiers did was to say "Him one what? Moat It ciulck or you iro In." And the nenrch went on. The cause of the excitement was n cleverly laid plot to "trim' the unsuspecting Orientals and, after many months of waiting it had worked on the afternoon and even Ing before the day of the excite mcnt. When the troops first landed in the Island and for many months thereafter, the government always ' paid them In gold and silver. It was a noticeable fact that after a gold piece once had been given in trade it never was seen again. One, on the day following n pay dny could take a $20 gold piece to a store for chungo and the best he could get was a wagon load of "Adoble" dollars or Mexican, or Spanish, Chinese, or .Strait Settle ments coins. Away back In the dear old Unit ed Stales, probably a year before when home one was enlisting to go to. the Philippines, or better, perhaps, they were seized with a bright idea. It must have hit them thus. "What do these Chinks, Japs and Filipinos know about Confed erate money? I'll bet they never saw any and it looks something like the real, thing." Acting on this suggestion muny soldiers must linvc loaded up on the paper monoy of the "lost cause," of which it took $1,000 to buy oVen a pair of boots at the close of Uio civil war. After many months of dreary waiting the day arrived when tho "green goods" could be sprung. That was tho first "paper" or currency pay dayl the soldiers had In tho Philippine) islands, un cnai uay incy were pnid off for the' provious two months in green backs and silver instead of gold and silver. It was nlso noticeable that the plans were well laid, not a cent of the "nucer" monoy being put into circulation until after banks had closed in the aftornoon. After that, however, tho "syndlcato" which was promoting tho great ..undertaking, got very busy. Sol diers nlwnys spend their monoy freely nnd a few of them, prob ubly a few, as four-fifths, gam bled. So It was; no unusual sight to tfec a private soldier with a large bank roll. Tho natives had learned to expect this and no one suspected when ho entered a small shop to buy a pair of socks as one did, if he tendered a $100 bill, In tho case of tho man who PUBLIC SALE!

Hyrik rewirafWdue W If :f.K. .. . At to the fact that there is less Iobs in fermentation when put on thinly, and also to tho fact, that a considerable share of tho valuo ot manure comes from the addi tion of beneficial bacteria to the soil, so that when this takes place over a wide area It is much moro beneficial than when limited to a small area. Another rcuBon why the manure spreader Is ndvantagcous is be cause a man who has his money Invested In an implement of this sort will take better care of the manure on the farm, He will not allow it to lie around and leach, but will get It back on to the fields where It should be placed. The very best way of handling manure Is to haul It out day by day, or week by week, as It is made if this can be done. Many farmers think that manure ap plied In this way will loss its vali uc before the next crop is grown, on the land, but experiments show that there Is very littlo loss In' thin case unless the land Is vcryi rolling. The next method of handling mnnurc, is to feed under an open shed whoro the manure Is kept tramped down compactly through tho feeding season and then haul ed during tho summer at a leis ure time. Manure kept compact ed in tliis way under cover, loses very little. Of course, tho prac tice ot feeding the animals direct ly on tho fields is a good one, but the difficulty is in getting the manuro scattered over the whole field. Tho scattering is too often confined to n smnll shel tered feeding ground. Farmers should understand more thoroughly the advantages to bo derived from tho uso ot a man ure spreader and every farm of one-hundred acres or over Where cattle are fed around the build ings, should not be without this Implement.
