Editors Skntinki.: We noticed in -your last issue an article by Mr. 1). W. Thuma, entitled "Quulity and Variety of Trees to Plant." in which he quotes largely from a speech delivered by my self before the State Horticultural so ciety seventeen years ago. Xow from the fact that we have noticed similar quotations from a nursery firm claiming to sell whole root trees, and from the . fact that these gentleni"n only quote so much of said speech as they deem neces-, sary to help them out in securing or ders, and from the fact that I have been growing and selling trees in Holt county fur thirty years, and from the fact that these partial quotations an; calculated' to reflect upon the manner and methods ' that my sons and 1, and later Mr. Hucher I and I have practiced, therefore I wish f to set this matter right before the pub- j lie ' In said speech I did denounce the practice of cutting up all manner of up-! pie tree roots intr small pieces, and I ! denounce it yet I did in said speech advocate the crown root, or one tree on I each seedling tree, but from seventeen i years' experience since that time, and from thorough tests made by our 'exper iment stations, it has been demonstrated that all number one, one year old apple seedlings may be cut into two or three sections, each four inches long, and all make good, healthy, well rooted trees. In all cases the second cut makes a tree equal to the first; the third generally falls below. It has been our practice for many years to make two and occas ionally three from one number one s'ock. But we grow many thousands of our trees by only making one from each treee, and the cost of producing the seedling stocks has become so cheap that there could be no possible induce ment in making more of one stock than will make first class trees. We make no extra charge for our whole root trees, but give the advantage of our life ex perience and what we have learned by actual practice to our patrons. We have no apology to make for a slight change of practice in seventeen years. Hon. T. B. Terry, of Ohio, a man of na tional reputation on potato culture, ad vises those who have his book on potato culture to take the practical farmer for which he writes weekly in order that he may give corrected views and the latest up-to date practical information. In the speech referred to we stated among the causes of the bad condition of our orchards general neglect, lack of proper care and cultivation, over pruning, etc. We now desire to say that much of the present unsatisfactory con dition of the western orchards has re sulted from the sale of so called whole root trees, that when delivered prove to b i almost rootless, and one orchard of one thousand trees bought for Ben Davis, not twenty miles from Oregon, turned out to be one-half Crab apple and the others worthless varieties, and not a Ben Davis in the lot. Moral: Buy your trees from your home nurseries where you are sure to get what you buy, and from men who have a good finan cial standing rather than from irre sponsible peddlers of so called whole root trees. The men in Northwest Missouri, who sell the most apples are the men who have for the last thirty years bought their trees from the Holt County Nur series. A number of them have sold their apple crop in a single year at from one up to four hundred dollars per acre. Will some of our agents for the so-called superior whole root trees sold at extra ordinary prices, please point out a few orchards that have done better will you please tell us of one that has done near so well? I have been over the state several times lecturing at farmers1 institutes on fruitgrowing, and have made it an un varying rule to advise the people to buy their trees from their homo nursery, rather than send off and take chances in buying from large firms and getting trees that may be infested with the dreaded San Jose scale and other injurious in jects. Thequestiou may arise are we . not in danger of buying from home nur series? No! not so much if they are in spected by the state entomologist. Ths Holt County Nurseriea are carefully in spected annually by Prof. Steadman.our State entomologist. Some states do not hare inspection and we regret to bay that Missouri has no law compelling the inspection of nursery stock before en tering the state. In the list of varieties that Mr. Thuma advises to plant we are sur prised that he should leave out the Grimes Golden Pippin. At tho last meeting of the Missouri State Horticul tural society, they voted it third on the list as a commercial variety, and as to quality there arc certainly none better. --The old Janet should havo a place in every orchard; it is much better than Ingram, and fully as large.

The polar fox cihanges the color of its coat. In summer it is almost black; in winter, it is so white that the ani mal can scarcely be seen as it scam pers over the snow. The whale's food capacity is start ling. In his new work on whales, Mr. F. E. Beddard states that the .stomach of a "bottle-nose" containert 10.000 beaks of squid, and a grampus had 13 porpoises and 14 seals, all whole and intact. The American ornithologist Alex ander Wilson who undertook many journeys in several parts of the state to collect knowledge for his great work on the feathered creation, stated that near Slielbyville, Ky.. he came upon a roosting-place of the carrier pigeons upwards of 40 miles in ex tent. He found the branches of al most every tree in the country, which was thickly wooded, filled with nests. THE ALASKA GOLD FIELDS. The gold yield for Nome since dis covery has been $5,000,000.

France ha, decided that all the troops in the colonies shall henceforth be armed with weapons similar to those of the home army. When the civil war began Washing ton was without defenses. Two years later it was surrounded by a chain of 72 forts. One of the things that appear to have been settled by the Boer war is the disappearance from the British arinv of the organization known as the armv corps. It is stated author! tatively that the division is the largest tactical liuit that can be conveniently employed in the field. G. A.

GEORGE 8. STEPHENSON. Executor. The Boy of the Family. Now, if anyone lias an easy time In this world of push and pull, It is not the boy of the family. For his hands are alway full. I'd like to ask who fills the stove? Where is the girl that could? Who brings in water, who lights the fire. And splits the kindling wood? And who is it that cleans the walks. After hours of sn iwing? In summer, who keeps down the weeds By diligently hoeing? And who must harnas the fniihful horse. When the girls would ride altout? And who must clean the carriage? The Ixiy, you'll own, no doubt. And who does the many other things Too numerous to mention? The boy is the "general utility man," And really deserves a pension! Friends, just praise this boy sometimes, When ho does his very best: And don't always want the easy chair When he's taking a little rest. Don't let him always be the last To see the new magazine; And sometimes let the boy be heard, As well as to be seen. That boys are far from peifect Is understood by all; But they have hearts, remember. For "men are boys grown tall.', And wheo a boy has been working His level best for days, It does him good, I tell you. To have some hearty praise. He's not merely a combination Of muddy boots and noise, And he likes to be looked upon As one of the family joys The Gkm. Nervous children are almost always thin children.

Recent experiments show that all classes of foods may be completely di gested by a preparation called Kodol Dyspepsia Cure, which alisolutely di gests what you eat. As it is the only combination of all the natural digestanls ever devised the demand for it has be come enormous. It has never failed to cure the very worst cases of indigestion and it always gives instant relief. C. O. Proud and S W. Aiken. From Jim Fryman. Mr. Fryman who left here several weeks ago for Marlow, Indian Territory, in a letter to a friend here, (-ays: "I am mighty well pleased with this part of the Almighty's foot stool. We are 504 miles south of St. Joseph, 165 miles from Fort Worth. Texas, and il is the nicest country I have ever seen. The people are mostly from Missouri, Texas and Arkansas. The men are tall and lim; the women short and ugly, and the greater portion of them are snuff dippers. Thus far I have seen but one. black man in the territory. All the varioun businesses are well represented. 'You never see any snow, only what you see on the cars coming in frou the north. Men have been here for the past 30 years waiting for the Commanche country to be opened up for settlement Politics here is different from that in Holt county Democrats predominate' "You should come to this country: you could get you a pet squaw in a very short time. The priociplo products are cattle, hogs, Texas ponies and baby In dians. They also raise cotton, corn and vegetables. They ship dead people here from Texas to build graveyards with. "There are some 500 houses now in course of building here, and mechanics in this line have all they can do. Every body seems to have plenty to do and plenty of money. The cotton picking is now going on, and the stations are lined with bales of this article. Plowing has been going on ever since I came down here, and it seems odd, I tell you." Yours Truly, , J. F. P. Fryman. Marlow, I. T., Jan. 20, 1901. In Your Life Worth iiO cent.

Their Ages. The bi ennial report of the curators of the state university has been sub mitted to the governor and the legis lature. From it we learn that the following are attending this institution from this county, and the roster shows their ages as follows: Samuel Loucks, Mound City: 21. Edith Dungan, Oregon; 17. Arthur Callow, Oregon; 24. J as. H.'Meyer, Mound City; IS. Chas. A. Blair, Mound City; 19. Don. C. Meyer, Mound City: 23. Edwin D. Smith, Maitland; 23. Wilson F. McCoy, Mound City: lf. Oscar W.

A powerful engine cannot be run with a weak boiler, and we can't keep up the strain of an active life with a weak stomach: neither can we stop the human machine to make repairs. If the stomach cannot digest enough food to keep the body strong, such a preparation as Ko dol Dyspepsia Cure shook be used. It digests what you eat and il simply can't help but do you good. C. O.

RAILROAD RUMBLES. In the early days of railways a pan nf fire in front of the engine or be hind the last vehicle served as a sig nal. The longest regular railway run in Great liritaiu is that from Euston to Liverpool, a distance of 1D3 miles, in a hours 45 minutes. The railway system of the United Kingdom has a total extent of about Sl.iMiO miles. Kngland nml Wales own 15.00S miles; Scotland. ::.47G miles, and Ireland. 3.l7t miles. The a la carte svstem of dining cars of the Pennsylvania line west of Pitts burgh has been abandoned in favor of the table d'hote plan, ballots hav ing been given to passengers for sev eral moil t lis in order that they might vote as to their preference. The Northern railway of France has just produced an important invention for trsting the soundness of its per manent !iv. It consist of a sie- c'a'.l const ructeil car. provided with self-registering- instruments, which shew at : glance any defects in the line. The quickest, the most prompt and satisfactory railway mail service in the I'nited States is lietween Chicago and the Missouri river. The mails are carried over that strip of country faster than anvwhere else on the globe, surpassing those of New York and New Kngland. John W. Hough, an engineer on the Motion road, has patented a deice to avert train hold-ups. The plan is op erated by a secret button. In easy reach of the engineer, and so located that he can. without being observed, and under cover of a train robber's revolver, touch the button which will start several whistles blowing, turn off all the lights, and fire off any num ber of guns from the baggage car. IN A BUSY WORLD. The amount of German capital in vested in China is over $70,000,000. The electrical works in Germany represent an investment of $00,000. 000. Throughout the entire hemisphere American goods are popular because they are durable. The weight of merchandise annually imported by Great Itritain line multi plied fivefold in 40 years. In the south the Italians are founil to be good cotton-pickers. They are quick and have nimble fingers. Our consul general in Guatemala says the catalogue and circular meth od of advertising does not appeal to the buyers of that country. A display of the goods is necessary. While boring an artesian well in the exhibition annex at Vincennes, the en gineers discovered a thick seam of coal at a depth cf about 100 feet. Experts sent out by the British South African company to inquire into the reported find of coal in Rhodesia state that the coal field is situated some 180 miles northwest of Bnluwayo and. is known to extend over at least 400 square miles. The seams vary from five to ten feet in width, and. as the coal lies within 40 feet of the surface, It will be worked by means of inclines instead of shafts. TOOK CENTURIES TO BUILD. Milan cathedral was 'begun in 1386 and finished under Napoleon in ItiOS 419 years. The castle of Kingsgoberg. yvhich stands at the southern extremity of Jutland, took 204 years from the lay ing of the foundation stone to the rigging of its master banner on its highest flagstaff. The Diiomo at Florence was com menced by Arnulfo in the year 1C94, the last block of marble being placed in position in the facade in presence of the king on May 12. 1S87. a period of 393 years. Stray Stories. Between Perth and Kingussie, in Scotland, on the direct John o' Groats to Land's End rond, stands Murthley castle, a magnificent Elizabethan structure, designed in the early part of the present century. It is not like ly to be finished, however, building expert declare, for at least another decade. While the first stone of Cologne ca thedral was laid on August 15. 1240, and the body of the edifice was not opened untH August 15. 1848, 600 years later to the very day, it was not, how ever, until August 15, 18H0. that the splendid structure was finally report ed completed, having thus occupied in building the record time of exact ly r.::4 years. AN UNASSORTED LOT. Alabaster exists in 17 different states. Stage coaches continued to run west ward from Washington as late as 1851. The santir, a kind of dulcimer, has been used for ages in the Caucasus. In Cologne automobiles are not al lowed lo run faster than 12 kilometres (7.4 miles) per hour. The northwest quarter of Washing ton, though built upon what was once a swamp pasture, is the moot popular part of the city to-day. In an account of Manchuria given in Petermann's Mittheilungen the state ment is made that the Mancbus are dis appearing under the influx of the Chi nese, and the time is prooauiy not. rar distant when their language will cease to be spoken, as their children are taught Chinese. The boundary line between the Uni ted States and Mexico has recently been resurveved and marked by stone monuments in the form of obelisks lo- tated aboul. five miles- apart. The shafts are ten feet high at the top. built ou foundations five feet square and rising ix inches a boy the sur face of the ground.

The greatest danger from colds and la grippe is their resulting in pneumonia If reasonable care is used, however, and Chamberlain's Cough Remedy taken, all danger will bo avoided. Among the tens of thousands who have used this remedy for thes? diseases we have yet to learn of a single case having resulted in pneumonia, which shows conclusively that it is a certain preventative, of that dangerous malady.
