SCOTT COUNTY BY 800 VOTES Prohibitionists Make Poor Showing In Contest for Local Option. 1 DRY MAN IN KELSO THREE HUNDRED WETS Farmers Surprise Dry By Voting Overwhelmingly In Favor of Saloons. The wets in Scott county yesterday won nn easy victory over the drys in the lacol option election. With two precincts to be heard from, it was an nounced last midnight that the wets were more than hOO votes ahead. William H. Heiserer, the Denton banker, said that only three precincts in the county were carried by the Prohibitionists. The election yester day was participated in by every town in the county except Sikeston and Chaffee. By eliminating Chaffee from the contests, the drji thought tllcy would carry the rural districts and small towns by ah eiverw'helinfng vole. The contest became rather heated during tin- past few weeks, and much, literature was circulated by1 both fac tions. The unti-prohibitieipists made their tight by showing w h'it?ifould cost the people of that county to olim- inate the saloons. ii jfurul reached dakon shyrHy-tmle !). One strong argument advanced! by )V ; the wets was that by voting iB favor of local option, it would permit liquor to be shipped into the county, but would take away from the county the huge sums that are now being paid in to the county treasury by the liiiior interests. '1 lie fact that Sikeston voted out sa loons a few months ago gave the drys new hope and they made a hard anil determined fight to bar siilooiis f,um every town except Chaffee, which is regarded as being wet by'' bth fac tions. 1 ' Had local option carried fourteen saloons would have gone out of busi ness. These, it was shown, turned into the county $15,000 each yar. Had these been closed, it would have forced the taxpayers to make up the deficit. The flection yesterday was a dis tinct surprise to boh sides. ' 'The drys contended throughout the cam paign that the farmers were in favor of voting out the saloons,' and even the wets were inclined to believe -that the rural districts were about equally divided ution the liquor (Hiestion. i .

' Because- of the short crops this season, a large amount of corn will . . ., , , , be cut off; some fields have already been cut. Mwch of this feed is httint- ed because of the drouth and the stalks are undeveloped.' To ivtakb si lage of it or to cut it up is the.. proper way to handle it because if properly cared for it will make considerable feed. There are some things tl.ough that may weel be considered in regard to this feed for horses and mules; for cattle,-when any judgment is used in ii'.iiiii, l ii, -1 1- I.-- ulii inue iuui:,-i. ,. ,..,.. k t ,.,i i L...I ;..'a feeding, there is but little daii!,-r. j field w damaged by wet weather but r .....ll ,,,,,t,. r.ii-n sitnl'.-j will s .,..,l j more of it than stunted, iminntu.v , nes uiil.

Impaction of the bowels is some times caused hv feeding corn fodder but it may be largely avoided by al lowing the animals plenty of salt, plenty of water and starting them gradually on tU" new feed. Corn stover if properly cared for is a very good roughage anel may be used profitably in most seasons. This time, when it is necessary to teeu it,;an, began tightening it.

In case there is no shed - iU cl.,!c,i ...i,,v, i,i at hand fodder may be ricked and cov - ered with anything that will turn water. It keeps very well when taken care of in this manner. In all seasons when the growth of the corn plant is stunted there is al ways some trouble caused by feeding the stover. The winter of 1901-02 fol lowed a dry season and a large num ber of horses died from eating the fodeler. Some sections of the county suffered in 1911-12 and the same thing was true in some localities last winter. There will not likely be a great deal of danger if the feed is well cared for but it is extremely likely that there will be some losses-this winter. It will pay to take some precaution.
