Tuesday, Augusts, 1910. After the Egg Farmers. ' Dr., W. F. Cutler, state dairy and food commissioner, is going a'fte the egg farmers in an effort to induce them to send in better eggs and thus avoid the clutches of the law. lie cites the law. at that. The Missouri statutes provide that any violation of the pure food law shall be punishable to a tine of from $10 to &00, six months" im prisonment, or both. Jle also says a bad egg isadulterated food. He quotes the law whiclf says: "Food shall be deemed to be adul terated if it consists m whole or in part of a diseased, filthjydecomposed, Dutrid. infected, tainted or rotten animal or vegetable substance.' Dr. Cutler blames the fact that portion of the Missouri egg product is bad upon the farmers, who hold their hen products, he says, overtime in order to get a case, and that the other delays follow upon the farmers neglect. The statistics show that Missouri hens furnish $44,000,000 worth of eggs a year, exceeding in return any other sinirle item of state produce, not ex cepting mining. The camnaisrn for better eggs has become statewide, and he has been sending out thousands of cards to egg dealers, citing the law, for the in struction of both farmers and dealers. Dr Cutler is also of the opinion that if the provisions of the law are ob served, it will mean a $1,000,000 a year to Missouri farmers if they get their eggs to market sooner, they will be fresh. Dr. Cutler says that it is better for the egg business if the farmer keeps the hens segregated. Contrary to general theory on the farms, the agri cultural colleges have discovered that a hen left alone lays the most eggs. The best record for a hen is 260 eggs a year, while an average hen lays 140 eggs. If segregated the efficiency of the hens will rise, and they will com mence laying what a good average hen ought to lay, 175 to 200 eggs a year. Again, eggs that are worthless, for setting make better shipping eggs, as the nucleous of the egg is the center around which decay starts, and this is missing in an unfertilized egg.

Mower Guilty, 2ff Degree. Ward Mower, was found guilty of murder in the second degree last week, in the Kansas City, Kas., criminal court, for the murder of Niel McCoig, in Wyandotte county, Kansas, a year ago. Mower heard tiie verdict quietly and with no evidence of feeling. His sister, Miss Deborah Mower, was at his side, where she has been all through the trial. She displayed no emotion. The crime for which Mower was convicted was the murder of Neil Mc Coig. his friend, in Kansas City, Kas., last December. McCoig's mutilated body was found hidden in a lonely ra vine west of the city, December 24, 1009. It remained unidentified, and Mower's offer to aid in identifying the body led to his arrest and his sub sequent confession of the crime. He made three confessions, but later re pudiated all of them. He swore on the witness stand that he made the confessions to shield Al bert Nance, his alleged benefactor whom, he said, nursed him through a serious siege of pneumonia. Judge Porter and Lige Ballard, of Mound City, were character witnesses, Mower having served as a member of Company B. 4th Mo. Infantry, during the Spanish-American war, Judge Porter being a lieutenant of the com pany. Mower was well known here by many of his former comrades, and they say he made a good'oldier.

ROBERT WALTERS. Affecting Live Stock Prices. Drouth conditions are beginning to be felt in a large part of the country tributary to the St. Joseph market. During the past week there has been a big increase in the number of young cattle sent to market on account of pasturage being burned out and the same factor that has increased the supplies of this class of stock on the market has had a tendency to check the inquiry from the farmers for cat tle to put into pastures and feed lots The general report seems to be that while the corn is looking good the farmers add that I he growing crop is beginning to show the need of rain It is also noted that the men who should naturally be picking up cattle on the market for shippment back to the farms are holding off and are say ing that they will not buy any stock until thev see what the corn crop is sjoing to do.

I have never been so successful as I have this year in getting rid of ground squirrels that have generally given me a good deal of trouble by taking the corn after it is planted. This I 3ear J purchased a dime's worth of ; styrchnine and dissolved this in water, adding three or four tablespoonfuls of sugar. 1 then took a pint of corn, soaked it in the sweet, poisoned wa- j ter, allowed it to swell for twenty four hours and then scattered this corn between the meadow and the cornfield and adjacent to the holes of the squirrels in the middle of the field. As a result I have failed to find a single hill that has been dis turbed by the squirrels and I haven't seen a squirrel since the day that corn was put out. ; Don't Miss Any.
