"Milk or meat in the ration may make all the difference be tween profit and loss.'" declares H. L. Kempster, professor of Poultry Husbandry of the Mis souri College', of Agriculture. "We know from our tests at the Experiment Station and from the experience of poultrymen every where. We got only 945 eggs from a pen of hens that ate no animal ioou, while anotiier pen of hens, no better in any way, but fed sour milk, laid 1783. Those fed beef scrap laid 1802 eggs. While this is a higher record than either of the others, the sour milk is so much cheaper and easier to get on most farms that we rec ommend it so highly. At 20 cents a dozen, the eggs from hens fed sour milk brought sf29.71 and those from the hens fed beef scrap $30.03. The difference wouldn't begin to pay for the extra cost and trouble of beef scrap. The big tiling to remember is that the hens fed no animal food brought little more than half as much egg money. Theory and experience both say s-reed the laying hen sour milk as part of her ration.' Railroad Man Injured. John Hamilton, 25 years 61d, a bridge watchman, riding a track velocipede or ' track speeder was badly injured about 8 o clock Saturday evening, being struck by an engine backing down from Butler to Ovid railway yards, and no light shone on the track to give him warning of the danger. He had started north to the ditch bridge north of Rich Hill, to go on duty tor the night. Hamilton sustained a compound fracture of the lefr leg, his teeth were knockexl out and received other body bruises. He was picked up and brought to the city where his injuries were dressed by Dr. Allen and later sent to the Mis souri Pacific hospital at Nevada. Hamilton is unmarried and his home is at Independence, Mo. Rich Hill Review. Ill 111 till Is made from good cabbage."

All the classes from Seniors to Freshmen know how to govern themselves. - ' Junior Notes. 1 ' Miss Fenton has the exquisite pleasure of reading descriptive papers which the Juniors handed in Friday. The papers were all based on some incident or bit of. description read in the "Idylls of the King.".. Some took the wedding of Arthur and Guine vere to describe, while others told of the building of the city, which was "built to the music of fairy harps." Altogether the results were most interesting. Some were delighted with 1 lie Reviews test grades others not so well satisfied. Miss Smith con soled us by saying, I 'I didn't ex pect everyone to do so well, for realize that this was a stiff test, In the chemistry class, Mr. Coonrod: "Julia give us the his tory of water." Julia '.'Water a very useful fluid, it was dig-. covered in 1871 by the English chemist Cavendish." Mr. Coon rod: "Yes, before" that time sand baths were very popular." And she wondered why we laughed. Sophomore Notes At tne present time we are thinking seriously of athletics Ave are going to work hard for the cup, as well as for the High School team. If our services are not needed there, we will support tne team in every possible war. Of course the boys say "We will win the cup," but there are two things we must, think about. First, our grades ' must be up. and second, more confidence than practice often causes defeat, fa It is all right for a team to have confidence, but confidence alone will never win anything, so rractice we will Practice we must . W We'll win that cup Or die or bust. ; f ; We haven't heard whether the Sophomore girls have organized yet or not But we are for them and the sooner they prepare id put a winning team in the field the better.

Kill Wife and Daughter, Then Shoots Himself. While temporarily ipsane, John .M. Parrish, aged 65, of Amster dam,, Sunday afternoon afiout 1:40 o'clock, fired four shots at his wife and two at his daughter and then kilted him self. Mrs. Parrish was unhurt but his daugh ter, Marj' Parrish, was shot through the right cheek. ! Sheriff Johnson was at once notified and in company with i Marshal Braden and Ed Crabtree i left at once for Amsterdam. No investigation of the shooting had ! been made when they arrived and after surrounding the house, as it was not known at the 'time that .Mr. Parrish had killed himself, Sheriff Johnson and his deputies went into the house. Parrish had spread a duck ov. ereoat over the bed on which he seated himself . with a shot gun between his knees, placed the muzzle under.his jaw and dis charged the gun with a , wiping rod which was still in his hand when the body was found. One whole side of his head was com pletely torn off. The terrible deed was evident ly premeditated as Parrish had Saturday wired his daughter, Ber tha, in Kansas City, to come sure Sunday, and she would find them all in the house together. The family had noticed for some time that his mind was af fected and he had repeatedly threatened to kill them but they had not taken his threats serious- ly. Parrish and his family had liv ed in Amsterdam since about the first of the year, having moved there from Richmond, Mo. - He was employed at the electric light plant. ; EayMt-Bottoua.
