How to Keep Stock Healthy By L. A. Weaver. Hogs become infested with worms by picking up the eggs with the food or in the drinking water. Therefore to lessen the opportunities for the hogs to become infested they should be kept in clean, well-drained lots and should be supplied with fresh, clean drinking water and not allowed to drink from ponds and mud-wallows. Fresh slacked lime sprinkled freely over the lots occasionally will help to destroy the worm eggs. Hogs badly infested with worms shorts $1.35 per hundred and tankage $2.50 per hundred it cost $5.68 to pro duce one hundred pounds of pork. In one of the experiment at the Mis souri Agricultural Experiment Station corn has been grown for 25 years on the same plot of ground with an ap plication of manure averaging about seven tons annually. In comparison with this, corn has been grown in vari ous rotations without manure. A sum mary of the yields for the last six years on these plots shows that the houTd be given 4 grains calomel, (5 1 average yield of corn on the rotated grains santonin for each 100-pound hjg; or 2l, grains santonin, 1 drachm areca nut, 2 grains calomel, 2 drachms sodium bicarbonate for each 100 pound shoat. These remedies should b.? fed in a thin slop. The slop should be made out of ship-stuff or bran. The hogs should be dieted for at L ast 24 hours, then given the slop containing the proper amount of medi cine. Make sure that there is plenty f trough room so all hogs can get to the trough without crowding, so each hog will get his share of the slop. If necessary reppat in ten days or two weeks. A good remedy used at the Missouri Agricultural Experiment Station for preventing worms is: 3 pounds glaub ers salts, 3 pounds common salt, 4 pounds charcoal, 1 pound sulphur, 3 pounds copperas and 3 pounds sodium bicarbonate. Mix and keep in a self feeder or trough in a dry place where the hogs can have access to it at all times. Hogs that are practically free from worms are much hardier than hogs that are badly infested with worms. Being hardier they are more resistant j to other diseases common to the hog. So hogs should be kept free from worms if they are to be the most profitable. plots is greater than the average yield of corn which has been grown contin uously with manure. In other words rotation has been somewhat better than heavy manuring in this experi ment. The last six years of the quar ter century have been chosen for com parison since one of the rotations is a six-year rotation and since this num ber of years is sufficient to largely overcome seasonal variations. It should not be understood from these results that rotation is sufficient to maintain the yield of corn. As a matter of fact there are other plots in this same experiment which have been both rotate 1 and manured. The average yields of these pint is vciy materially above rotation alone. The important points are, that rotation is more important than fairly heavy manuring in the long run, but that it is not all-sufficient; that in order to maintain land in productiveness eco nomically, it should he both rotated and manured, while in many cases commercial fertilizing materials ap plied in addition to the manure will give still further return. Every year sees a greater number of Missouri farmers using manure as u top dressing on wheat. There is considerable evidence to show where wheat is grown in a rotation, manure The Missouri Agricultural Experi- can very often be applied to better MEN ACCUSED OF VOTING FRAUDS MAY BRING SUITS Cape Residents Say They Have Been Damaged by Charges.

Shoats weighing 121.0 pounds at the beginning of a 60-day feeding period gained 1.79 pounds a head daily, advantage as a top dressing on this crop than as an application before corn. There are two principal ad vantages of this practice. The first orr is that it greatly stimulates the growth of th? wheat and helps to prevent win ter killing with a resulting increase in A storm of protest was raised yes terday by a score of well-known Cape Girardeau men, who were listed :n Henry Brinkopf's list of men accused of fraudulent voting at the recent elec tion. In Mr. llrinkopf's contest suit, brought against X. J. Hutson, sheriff elect, he charges that three hundred illegal votes were cast, and with this as his basis, he attempts to prevent Hut-on from taking his seat. Brinkopf charges that many of the alleged ballot-box stuffers voted at seera! precincts ithe county on the day of election.

He savs weighing 228.f pounds at the close of yield. The second one is that since the feeding trial. During this time they were supplied corn, shorts and tankage, each of these feeds being placed in a separate self-feeder and the shoats allowed to eat as much of each as they wished. When so fed they seemed to balance their ration about as well as could be done by hand feeding. The proportion in which the feeds were eaten are: Corn, 20.(36 pounds; shorts, 3.9.0 pounds, and tank age, 1 pound. The average daily feed! to grow clover. consumed per hog was 8.1 S.l pounds. The amount of feed required for each pound of gain produced was 4.!5 pounds. clover and grass are usually sown with the wheat and since manure aids very greatly in securiny a stand of these crops when used as a top dress ing with the wheat, this alone may be sufficient reason for its application. As a matter of fact the top dressing of wheat with manure almost insures a stand of clover or grass on land which is at all suited to these crops. The land may be too sour or too wet Much land in Mis souri is too sour. If it is only slight ly sour, the manure greatlyaids in getting a clover stand.

It is first of all gratifying to know that there is a law to protect trees and that not even signs and notices are permitted to be placed on them. But either this law is a new one or it has not been observed for not only have the trees been used as bulletin boards but the telephone companies have as serted the right to butcher up line shade trees an dto treat them with no more consideration than so many weeds.

At this sea son of the year when hunting is so much indulged in, precautions against accidents should be borne in mind by everyone who goes abroad with a gun. It would not be amiss if demonstra tions showing how to hold a gun were annually made in all the schools. It would require only a few minutes and most boys would never forget it. When someone is behind you, carry the gun under the right arm with muzzle point ing "orward. When some one is be fore you, carry gun on " shoulder or hold with right hand with barrel lying in elbow of left arm, the muzzle point ing vo one side. The rule should be never to carry the gun with muzzle pointing towards anyone. Be careful in setting the stock on the ground, not to hold the hand over or above the muzzle and not to strike the hammers against any object. In climbing fences always err on the 6ide of caution. One thing is certain: If the muzzle is never painted towards anyone, no one will strin gently against violators and compel some respect for the beautiful cre ations of nature that are so grateful to perspiring man when the hot sun drives him to seek a leafy shade. L. R. Johnson. BANK FUNERAL ONE OF CAPE'S LARGEST One of the largest funerals ever seen in the Cape was that of Charles R. Bank, who was buried Sunday aft ernoon. A procession over 12 blocks long followed the body of the youth fro the St. Mary's Cemetery, where it was buried. About two thousand per sons were in the funeral parade. The young man was accidentally shot while hunting last Wednesday morning by Edward Blank. The funeral, which was in charge of the Lorberg Furniture Co., left the house of Henry Albert Blank about 12:30 o'clock. The Western Catholic Union, of which Bank was a member, was in charge of the ceremony until the cortege reached St. Mary's Cath olic Church. After the corpse had been blessed by Rev. Father E.

Several of them told the chief thr.t they would bring suit against Brin kopf for damages. While it is said that Brinkopf did not iniliafo the sirt. he signed the petition, which, accord ing to attorneys, who were consulted yesterday, makes Mr. Biir.kopf liable.

All that you have to do is to be pres ent, and look as pleasant as you can. If you do,n't win tonight, why, just call again. You may have seen luck before the show is over. The day following her divorce, Mrs. Julia Goza was married to Henry Reitzel, a wealthy farmer, of near Farmington. The bridegroom is 70 years old, and the bride gave her age as 45. The couple were married Thanksgiving morning by Mayor Kage at the home of Mrs. Man- Berry, a Younj Bank was a favorite among j sister of the bride's first husband, who his fellow-workers at the International ' lives near Sloan's Creek. Shoe Company's plant. This was evi denced by the large attendance of shoerorkers. After the ceremony, a wedding din ner, which was a Thanksgiving feast, was served. Only a few close friends and relatives of the bride and the bridegroom were present at the cele bration. At the conclusion of the event the newlyweds stole away from their friends and rode to the new home near Farmington that the bride groom had erected for them. The bridegroom, a very robust man, is well known around Farmington and Jackson, where he formerly lived. He m considered wealthy. He sold his farm recently and built himself a cozy home near Farmington. When this was completed he got the bride. Mrs. Reitzel was divorced Wednes- dav morning from her first husband Doc Goza, to whom she had been married since 1883. In her petition, she charged her husband with having neglected her. He also associated with other women, she told the Judge. Often, Mrs. Reitzel told the court, he would follow her former husband to see what he would do, and when he learned she was playing detective, he would abuse her. Nevertheless, she said, she tried to forget the conduct of her husband, but the harder she would try the less consideration she would receive. He finally left her, she said, and she has not heard from him since. Mrs. Lottie W. Windles, an attrac tive widow of 15 years, and a resident of Advance, was awarded the sum of $2000 damages from the Floesch Con struction Co., as a settlement for the death of her husband, who was killed while in the employ of the firm. Set tlement was made yesterday afternoon in the Common "Pleas Court, where the suit for damages had been filed yes terday morning by Wilson Bain, at torney for 3Irs. Windles. The case was not contested by the construction company, and alter a conference be tween the parties concerned, the amount of damages was agreed upon. Mrs. Windles, because of her age, sued through her guardian, J. H. Jen kins, the cashier of the Bank of Ad vance. Her mother, who is Mrs. Frank Reynolds, came here with the youth ful widow ready to testify fn behalf of her daughter. There was no testi mony heard, as the defendant's at torney waived a jury and offered to compromise the suit before it was presented to the court. Frank Windles, the husband of the plaintiff, was killed on Sept. 9, while he and a gang of laborers were blast ing near Advance. They were, paving a way for a public highway, and for this purpose had to remove several large trees. They were using dyna mate to tear the trees out of the ground. It was said that a charge of dynamite went off before it was sched uled to explode, caused by the care lessness of a man who was in charge of the work. Windles was literally torn to bits Windles was 20 years old. The couple had been married only seven months, having eloped Feb. 1 Another suit against the Floesch Construction Company was settleci when Luther A. Higgins. of Thayer, Mo., was given damages by the attor ney of the company. The amount of the settlement is not known. He also was represented by Attorney Wilson Bain. Higgins, a soldier of fortune, was injured last October while employed on a dredge boat belonging to the con struction company. Two fingers of his left hand were caught in the cogs of a wheel and mashed. He was brought to the Cape, where his fingers were saved by an operation performed at the St. t ranci.s .Hospital. It was said that the accident was due to the inferior lighting in the machine room of the dredge boat. Shortly before the accident occur red, Higgins had returned from Liver pool, England. He had sailed there in chanre of a load of war mules When he returned to the Unite States, he went back to his home in Thayer, a small town near Dutch- town, and obtained a position with the construction company. He is now em ployed by the Southeast Missouri Garaere Comnanv. which is located on North Spanish street. Council Committee Has Not Yet Made Report of In spection of Year Ago.

C. Vorbeck announced last night that he would be a candidate for the School Board at the spring elec tion. There will be two vacancies on the board to be filled when the Mayor and four council men are elected. Those whose terms expire, are H. H. Haas and Lee Bowman. It is understood that Mr. Haas will be a candidate to succeed himself, but is is not known whether Bowman con templates making the race or not. He is at present the secretary of the board. Dr. Vorbeck is one of the best edu cated men in the city and has taken a keen interest in educational work for many years. He has never been a candidate for office before. There is no salary attached to the office of member of the School Board, which prevents a political scramble for the vacancies as they occur. Politics have never been taken into consideration in seleVing suitable mn for these positions.

The meeting was of short duration, there being little business before tho nouse. ine complaints maue hy .-ev-eral members in behalf of the citizens were referred to thir respective com mittees for settlement. Owing to the fact that the Missouri Public L'tlities Company will conduct another hear ing on the intake tower proposition, the council adjourned until Thursday morning, v. hen this hearing wi'l be conducted in the council chamber. Th.? Pcsthouse shall be inspected by the Building Committee of the Council. It was brought out that this inspection had been ordered more than a year ago. and that the committee had never made a leport as to the con dition of the institution. Councilman Armgardt said tne building was in need of repairs. It is wholly unfit for oi cuparc, he said. Every window and door is gone and the interior is not suitable for th' living (piarters, he told the council. The Street and Water Committee was requested to see that the water mains on South Sprigg street be ex tended in order to accommodate the citizens in South Cape. Councilman Kaess related numerous complaints made by the citizens. Frederick street, which was paved recently, was accepted by the council, after it had been examined by the Street Committee and the latter bad submitted a favorable report. The street was finished last Saturday by Herman LoetYel. A request of Joseph Barenkamp, who, last season had the bascba! priv ilege in the Cape, asking for a reduc tion in the license for this privilege, was referred to the Grievance Commit tee. In his letter to the councd, he pointed out the fact that he could not operate the whole season because of the league's being dissolved, and for that reason he thought he was entitle.! to a reduction of the license fee. The poor illumination of dihoney street caused a resolution to be passed asking the lighting company to in-tal! two lights, one near Maple street an! the other in front of the oil station. The contract of John H. Rouse for the paving of Hanover street was ex tended 90 days. Rouse requested this extension in a letter to the council. stating that unforseen circumstances made it impossible to live up to the contract.
