Bessie Moon, j MISS MAMIE HILL DIES OF PNUEMONIA We are sad t* state the death of Mamie, the ld-year-old daugh ter of Mr. and Mr?. W. M. Hill of Emmet, Route 2, which oc curred Thursday evening, Dec. 8th. Her body was laid to rest in the Harmony cemetery on Friday evening. The corpse was borne in the church, in a beauti ful white casket by friends of the family as pall bearers, and was followed by the family, alter whom followed a line of many sad-hearted schoolmates of the deceased with the teacher at their head, each wearing a piece of vhite and black ribbon around one arm. The funeral services were held by Rev. Armstrong, after which the procession fol lowed by a host of sympathizing frinds. passed into the cemetery where they left their loved one. F0RGIN6 EASLY TOMATOES Those who expect to force early tomatoes should now make prep aration for hotbeds and cold frames. Unless enough manure is saved upon the farms, there may be a difficulty in getting enough of the heating kind. The lumber and sash (if sash are used)should now be provided, and the location of thebedsselect ed. Due attention should be given to convenience in selecting the site. It is usually necessary to force ihe plants in a hotbed (like the one described elsewhere in this department) and when plants are a few weeks oid transfer then into the cold frame to “harden off.” The cold frame is simp.y a bed without artifical heat—ore that can be easily and quickly covered during cold days and frosty nights. From the cold frame the plants are transplanted into open ground where they are to remain. PLAN FOR CONVENIENCE Feeding and earing foranimlas become a pleasure when the barn is c~ mmodioug, and stalls are conveniently araanged with re speck to the feed. Muck will depend upon the amonnt of labor in handing and feeding theani mals. and too mucli importance cannot be plueedjupon conenient arrangements. Those who built barns* shouln (plan the obstruction crrefully and recal vivid experiences of f blunnering in tnedark, expasnre to bad weather, and to a tired back feeding in poorly planned 1 barn. Perhaps these experiences ■ are necessary, for we are apt to avoid them when we build tin 1 new barn. NOTICE OF SALE Notice is hereby Riven that by virtue of a decree of the Nevada County !
