A Choice Bunch of "Bulla" From the Houae of Commons. There is no place like the house of commons for a "nice derangement of metaphors." It will be a long time before we have a "mixture" equal to the outburst of an effusive orator who mid, "The British lion, whether it is roaming the deserts of India or climb ing the forests of Canada, will not draw in its horns or retire into its »hell." It recalls the famous "bull" made by Sir William Hart-Dyke, the Union ist ex-minister, who caused uproarious laughter in the house of commons one day by remarking: "The right honor able gentleman has caught big fish in bis time. He has gone to the top of the tree to find them." Alluding to an item of £2,000,000 in the army estimates one year, a certain member described it as "a flea bite in the ocean," while another, advocating an increase in the European troops •mployed in India, remarked, "You may depend upon it, sir. the pale face of the British soldier is the backbone of the Indian army." An Irish member speaking of suicide said, "The only way to stop it is to make it a capital offense, punishable with death." It was the same member who assured the house that "as long as Ireland was silent under her wrongs England was deaf to her cries," while it was during a debate on the scandal of packed juries during the Irish trou bles that a member in support of the government exclaimed, "By trial by Jury have I lived, and, by the blessing of God, with trial by jury I will die." There was a wild howl of delight, too, when some prosy member was careless enough to remark, "The time has come and is rapidly arriving," which is equal to the cry of the mem ber who wished a motion was "at the bottom of the bottomless pit"—Lon don Tit-Bits.

Galloway, Famous Agricultural Expert. «y 5 Dr. Beverly Thomas Galloway, the newly elected dean and director of the New York State College of Agricul ture at Cornell university, has spent his entire life in the service of agricul ture. He began his career as an in structor in the Missouri State college, was for many years the head of the bureau of plant industry of the United States department of agriculture and since 1013 has been assistant secreta ry of agriculture. Dr. Galloway was born in 1SC3 in Millersburg. Mo., his father, a native of Kentucky, having been one of the pioneer settlers in the state. After the civil war the Galloways moved to Co lumbia, the site of the Missouri State university. There Dr. Galloway's ca reer niay be said to have begun. He began int once to specialize in plant pathology, a subject in which only one or two institutions in the United States were then doing any work. An offer of the place of assist ant botanist in the United States de partment of agriculture he declined be cause it would have interfered with these investigations, but when con gress appropriated a small sum of money in 1SS7 for the study of plant diseases he became assistant patholo gist in the section of mycology. Dr Galloway found four or live men work ing with a total appropriation of $ti.000 or §7.000. When he steps out of the department he will leave behind him in the bureau of plaut industry nearly 3.000 men engaged in work that costs nearly $3.0011.000 a year. In 1913 Dr. Galloway became assist ant secretary of agriculture, an ap pointment which was recognized at the time as entirely devoid of political significance. Here he again showed his sympathy with the agricultural col leges and state experiment stations. Much of his time, indeed, has of late been devoted to bringing the depart ment into closer touch with them. He is also a strong advocate of instruc tion by practical demonstration when ever possible, of *:oing directly to the farmer with iinformation be needs. A Virginia Statesman.

MITCHEL My husband had been appointed United States military attache at Ber lin and had gone there some time be fore me in order to secure a place to live against my coming. 1 was on my way there from Paris, traveling ou a chronicle flrit class "railway corfcli. Bes'Qe tue sat a man, and before him sat anoth er man, the two being evidently travel ing companions, for they were talk ing very earnestly in German, a lan guage«*did not understand. Directly before me was a vacant seat, on which 1 tossed my hand bag. This was very careless of uie. for it contained all the money I had with uie. I had been up late nights in Paris and was very tired and sleepy. I fell into doze and from a doze into a sound sleep. More than an hour pass ed before I awoke, and when did I found that the man who had been seat ed beside me was the only other per sOu except myself in tile compartment He bad changed his seat to one oppo site me next the window and was reading a periodical. Xear him lay my bag. just where 1 hail placed it. I opened it and looked for my pocket book. Xow. I leave it to any woman if she on awakening from a slumber to tind she had been rob lied of money from a bag lying beside a man would not look up at him accusingly. The man's eyes were upon me. and my looks told him that 1 suspected him of stealing the money 1 had lost just as plainly as it could have been expressed in words. He looked frightened and said some thing to me in German, but he might as well have spoken in Sanskrit. Then he tried me in French. I can spealc a Utile French, but can understand it scarcely at all. At any rate, I didn't catch what lie had to say. The man looked so cut up that I grew suspicious of him. But why he had not left the traiu with it while I was asleep I could only conjecture. Perhaps the train had not made a stop. He was not a cool thief by any means, for without my taking any action whatever he took out a roll of crisp bills and said to me in French: "Combien?" ("How much?") which I understood was asking me the amount I had been robbed of. I held up one finger and said. "Mille francs," meaning that 1 hud had 1,000 francs in my pocketbook. My money had been brand new. like the notes he held in his baud, and 1 did not doubt they were mine. 1 gathered that he pre ferred to return my money rather than have me call a guard at the next sta tion and have hilii arrested. He count ed the roll in his hand, and it amount ed to exactly 1.000 francs. Then he handed it to me, saying something in French which I did not understand. I was very glad to get my money back at all and especially so easily. When we reached the next station the thief looked at me anxiously and on seeing that I made no move to call any one to arrest him drew a long sigh of relief. T|iis was the only stop we made till we reached Berlin, and when we .rolled into the station and the coach door was opened by the guard the raseal jumped out and disappeared in a great hurry. Mjr husband bad secured a bouse in the capital, had engaged servants and had everything'ready not only for our comfort, but to enable us to entertain guests. Of course every one of the diplomatic corps must do more or less entertaining, and since 1 brought my husband a fortune and we were abun dantly able to bear the expense we proposed to do our. full share but, of course, 1 must go through the prelim inaries of being introduced at court. All this had been attended to. and I was a full fledged member of Berlin society. The first important function I attended was a state ball at the pal ace. I was standing talking to a lady whose husband was a member of the diplomatic corps when I saw the em peror coming with a gentleman who was bedizened with decorations, the emperor laughing at something the lat ter was telling him. When they came near enough for me to distinguish their features the marrow froze in my bones. The man to whom the emperor was listening was the thief who had stolen, then returned, my money. I shrank away, but not in time. He saw, me. and the expression on his face denoted as much surprise as mine did conster nation. Then he said something to the emperor, who looked at me with an ex pression of aipused surprise. ., Calling to a lady standing near me. the emperor and the thief talked to her. and it was evident that they were talking about me. Then the three" approached me. and the lady, after making the required presentation, told me that the thief was Count Hein rich Schmieden, one of the emperor's most intimate friends. He bail been telling his majesty of how a lady on a train had been robbed and bow he rather than submit to arrest had paid over the amount stolen. Just as be had finished the story he espied me. The matter was considered an ad mirable Joke by the emperor and. in deed, by the count, who claimed tliar he had paid me the money not s* much through fear of my having him arrested as the inconvenience I would be put to at not having any money for expenses. I doubted his gallantry, but gave him credit for it. The uext morn ing my husband sent him a check for 1.000 francs. The affair resulted in our receiving considerable attention from one of the most influential men in Berlin. Timely. "How wonderful are the ways of na ture!" "In what respect?"

Commencing at 7:30 Agricultures Notes In view of the wide distribu tion of Russian Thistle and stink-weed in this locality, it may be timely to mention a few per tinent facts about these plants. Russian Thistle—As this weed is very well known, it needs no detailed description. It flowers from July to September, seeds ripen itt, August. The seeds are distributed by the tumbling plants, which are driven by the wind, as the seeds do not shell readily, they are carried a long distance. Russian Cactua—As it is some times called, is a large suculent weed and thrives where the land is too dry for other plants. It thus uses up the moisture where it is scarcest and most needed. It is hard on horses, harvesting ma chinery and binder twine. Rem edy: Hand pull wherever practi cable. Harrowing growing crops is an effective remedy it i3 easily killed when young by this meth od. The harrow should be applied iust before the grain emerges from the ground and again when the crop is 3 inches high. If winter wheat or rye can be grown, there is little ^difficulty with Russian thistle, as it is very suseptible to frost, and plants started in the late summer will be seed. Spring crops should nev er be sown on land that contains live Russian thistle seed, unless there is sufficient moisture in the soil to produce a vigorous and healthy growth.. Scientific dry farming, with well tilled summer fallow or cultivated crop every third year will conserve the mois ture in the soil so that the crops will be strong enough to crowd out Russian thistle. Work on the summer fallow should begin early. In some of the alfalfa and clover fields, sown broadcase in the spring, there is a rank growth of this weed. These fields should be mown right now (if possible at all). This will kill the thistle and the crop will grow again next spring, If the weed has formed seeds it is best to rake it after cutting and burn it. French or Stinkweed—French weed sometimes called Penny Cress, was originally introduced from Europe, and is rapidly spreading over western North Dakota. It is an annual or inter annual, and the plants that remain green over winter flower shortly after ihe snow disappears, and seeds are thus being ripened through out the whole summer. The small white flowers are enly about 1 -8 of an inch across, but the flat seed pods are very conspiciou3, being about Yz the size of a dime and having a dis tinct notch at the top. The out er circle of this pod consists of a kind of wing, while the inner circle contains 2 rows of 6 or 8 seeds each. Although the plant usually grows 1 to 2 feet high, it will often be found producing seed while only 2 inches above the ground. Under good conditions it produces a rank growth of leaves, and has a most unplaas ant smell, somewhat resembling garlic. When eaten by milch rows it imparts a disagreeable flavor to milk and its product*. Rcl-nedy Sow clean seed. French weed belongs to the mustard family, but being a win ter annual, the young plants are perfectly hardy, and need thor ough cultivation. Lard infested with this weed should be plowed and harrowed as soon as the crop is harvested. When the weed seeds h?»ve ger minated in the spring, the land should be cultivated and harrow ed so as to destroy the young plnats when at a tender age. As soon as the grain is above the surface,and before the leaves have their second pair of wings. pic°£?S, [The Bijou Theatre '•ftf0-*. ®S*V In The Whitney Building Formerly Occupied by The Model Clothing Store Two Shows Each Night Four Changes a Week...

Johnson, of the First National Bank of Dickin son, proved himself a man of cool nerve when a man, said to be a homesteader in the vicinity, valked into the bank, and stick ing two automatic pistols in Mr. Johnson's face, said, "I want those checks of mine." Johnson parleyed with him, to cool him down and he finally left the bank in search of another party to his alleged transaction. When hs returned, the chief of police was waiting for him iat the bank cor ner, and he was handcuffed and taken to jail. The authorities will probably be called upon to pass on the man's sanity.
