Mo., when he resigned on a court "f his wife's pour heal'h and was transferred to the North Texns Conference After serving as pa-tor of thj First Methodist church nt Pilot Point two years, the Drnison conference sent him to the Decatur station. Bm. Lehnhoff is one of the most powerful preach er thrtt has ever been sent to the lot al church. His first sermon in the heautil'nl church building made a favorable impression on those wh" went on!

W so dunty (Decatur, Texas) Messenger Profitable Crop Everett Melvin, a young farmer out in the Asbury vicinity, sold $900 worth of soy beans this week which he raised last year on about twenty acres of ground. Some of our farmers who don't know any thing else but raising wheat and corn ought to go to night school to Everett. In the Southern States there is a large army of cotton grow ers who have grown poor because they "knowed" there wouldn't any thing else grow down there but cot ton. A lot of Illinois farmers de clare that this is a corn and wheat state exclusively and are losing money trying to prove it. People learn mighty 6low, and the farmers in this section seem to be just as stubborn as they are anywhere. Chinch bugs like wheat end corn, but they won't bother trying to get a meal out of cow peas or soy beans. If they eat up a few more crops the farmers may be forced to abandon the wheat and corn program to keep from going to the poorhouse. Ed. F. Ford is another grower of soy beans who cleaned up $40 an acre thereon last year Greenfield (III.) Argus. Kelly Pool of the Centralia Coup ier says that he was talking with a well known circuit judge the other day and he said to him that mis chief making gossip was at the bot tom of two thirds of the divorce cases. Some busy-body with an evil-eye and suspicious tongue starts a rumor mat g-iows as it goes straight to the, wife or husband Pretty soon these slimy lies destroy the confidence of husband and when confidence is gone happiness leaves and trouble takes up abode in the home. The wife becomes a nagging scold and the husband develops in to a soreheaded grouch and by and by the divorce court gets the case. How can any one not a devil incar nate carry a rumor into a home to poison the wife's mind against her husband, or destroy a roan's confi dence in his wife? Why will decent people peddle an unfounded suspi- The J ' a --'V ' .l, . ! ' ;.'-,;V'''3f.-,-. V -i e City Democrat's Biggest Offer i ;-.-t. vnzzi0' -.'! !.;; rA.tttlOH 'OCTcllt'JB.It !-''.

The following story is told to show the precipitate nature of some people Some lime ago a wild young ani mal named Jimmy was promoted from the third grade in a public school to the fourth. The teacher in the fourth grade was young and timid, and knowing Jimmy's repu tation, there came a great fear in her gentle little heart. With Jim my's old teacher, however, it was different. "If you have any trouble with stairs to me. I'll fix his feet for him." A week went by, and one day Jimmy appeared at the third-grade teacher's door Little school inarm got right on the job. Without any preliminaries, Jimmy was yanked into the room, laid across her knee and beautifully tanned. "Now, then, Master Jimmy." said the teacher, releasing the you 'g-tter, "what have you got to say for your self?" "Please, Miss Mary," wns the startling rejoinder, "Miss I- uie wants to know if you won't - a.se lend her your pen knife." E How to Fertilize. t Some basic principles which should be known and worked for in establishing a more efficient and scientific farming industry, were expressed at the Agricultural de partment of the University of Illi nois. As given, they are: Nitrogen and humus. At least one-fourth of the cultivated land of the farm should be devoted to legumes to maintain the nitrogen and organic matter supply. Limestone. After some initial application sufficient to neutralize the acidity present in the soil, 1000 pounds of ground limestone an acre a year is recommended to pro vide for thr loss through leaching and removal of crops. Phosphorus. An application of 1.000 pounds of fins raw rock phos- : phate an acre once every : four ' years is recommended as sufficient to maintain the phosphorus sup ! plv. Alfalfa. Early spring seeding of alfalfa with a light nurse crop on land prepared the previous fall is preferable lor northern and central Illinois Slimmer seeding should be wade on fallowed ground in June or July .vilhout a nurse crop. Hog Cholera. Serum is recogX nized as the best known prevents- tive of hog cholera. It is agreed that the remedy sh uld be admin istered by a licensed veterinarian rather than by a county ndvisor. The advisor should act only in a co-operative way in the control pf the disease. Winchester (111.) Times. Political gossip to the effect that speaker of the Missouri House, James P Boyd, desires to succeed Congressman Rucker of the Second district. Boyd will run Rucker as close a race as any man in the Sec ond district, but that is not saying that he will beat him, for when it comes to getting votes Judgt Ruck er holds the blue, red and green ribbons in the Bill Stone class, if you please. We should advise Speaker Boyd to wait untU Judge Rucker dies before he runs against him. Ralls Co. Record. .
