Last week the entire State Committee of the party was called to meet in Raleigh to settle thi.s all-important question. They re solved that a Democrat is a man who will shut his eyes, forget principle, nnk personal independent, and vote for every man nominated by the party" from President down to township constable, and they further n solved that a man who is not will ing to .swallow the whole thing, hide, tallow, pin-feathers and all, is not a Ii nun-rat and shall not be allowed to vote in the Democrat primary for Senator.

Where is all the money coming Ihmu that Kitchins campaign mana gers arc spending in Davidson Coun ty and the other counties of the Slate?

She Is a rery persistent milker, gtvtnf a Uniform quality wall up toward calv ing, and many of them are dried off with difficulty. She la rery Intelligent, quick to learn and of a retentive memory easily taught to take the same place in the stable and. if required to change, will in a few days readily take the new place. She is quiet and pleasant to milk, not easily dis turbed, and will as a role yield her milk as readily to one milker as to another, and does not seem disturbed by any amount of noise in the stable. As a dairy cow she is particularly adapted to the production of milk for the milkman and for table use, as her medium size, rigorous appetite and easy keeping qualities make her an economical producer, while her eren, uniform production makes her a reli able supply, and the richness of her milk in total solids places it above suspicion from city milk Inspectors. Her milk ia particularly adapted to transportation, as it does not churn or sour easily, and when poured back and forth a few times will readily mix the cream back into the milk, which will not again readily separate, giving it a uniform quality until the last is sold or used. It has a good body, is rich looking and never looks blue. The milk Itself being easily balanced with caseia and butter fat, is a complete food, easily digested, nutritious, and Is particularly adapted to children and invalids. Stomachs that are weak and unable to direct other milk find no trouble with Ayr shire cow's milk. FOR USE IN MILKING COW Invention of Florida Man Provides Vertical Partition Between Milk er and Animal. The Scientific American in describ ing a sanitary structure and milking appliance, Invented by Q. M. Lummia of Fort Myers, Fla., says: "This invention provides a vertical partition interposed between the cow and the milker, and constructs the same with a large opening ever and in which a flexible screen formed of rub ber, skin or fabric, and having holes for insertion of the cow's teats, is ap plied so as to completely exclude for eign substances from access to the milk pail. Thus in place of taking a wn nTTTTl I trtn H a SIS I Appliance for Milking Cow. paH or rnllfcjng machine to a cow when tied in the open or in a stable, the cow is taken to a particular struc ture and is confined therein while be ing milked. The engraving shows a cross section of a cow stall or stable and an adjoining compartment where the milker is located. Cruelty to the Cows. The milker who will thump a cow for squirming under the attack of flies ought to be hoisted out of the barn on the toe of the dairyman! boot Why should the hired man be ex pected to work ten hours or more In the harvest field and then while hot and dirty tackle the milking job? Prepare for Future, 4 It U Imperative that we provide some meanB of tiding the dairy herd over the season of tailing pastures, instead of vainly regretting that It has occurred. The dairyman who depends upon the pasture during the summer and hay during the winter to feed his cows Is treading on treacherous ground. Cow Testing. The universal interest in the profr lexn of increasing dairy profits through the cow testing associations shows that dairy farmers are willing to learn better ways when they have convino lag proof to sustain a theory. Care In Spraying. In sprayiag the cows, be that a generous quantity of the sdb Hon is put on their backs, especially just behind the shoulders, clnoe at these points It is difficult for the ani mals to brush off the files, ; PROFITS INCREASED BY SILO Dairyman Should Be Ready ta Take AdvanUje cf Opportunities to Re duce Hit Expenses. fBy J.

But when told that he could double the profits by the use of the alio he be comes very IndltTersct and keeps on In the same eld rut. feeding dry feed, wasting nearly half of his corn crop and doing a lot of unnecessary work. In these days of close competition, dairymen should b-s ready to take ad vantage of every opportunity to re duce the cost of production, and It will be found that it is easier, if the At III I!

These con ditions, however, do not last very long. The silo comes as near to supplying the ideal conditions as anything that can be found, and it is available every day in the year. It provides a uniform feed for every one of the twelve months. Highly sensitive dairy cows resent any sudden or violent change in feed, and will show it by a decreased milk flow. The change from fall pasture to dry feed is always followed by a shrinkage in the milk. In changing from the pasture to the silage, the change is not so great, and often the cows increase the flow of milk when started on silage. Several dairymen have recently made the statement that the inoerased profits paid for the silo the first year. Cows that are on pasture should have free access to salt. Bent hesitate to increase the gnrin ration to keep up the nulk flow. The heifer whose first mCk period Is long, frequently develops the habit of long periods.

"Slugs, which eat the tender leaves of the cherry and pear trees may be killed by dusting with fresh alrslacked lime. Apply early in the morning when leaves are damp. Two applica tions will nearly always kill the worms and their larvae. "The late broods of caternlllars should be destroyed before they leave the nest. If not killed when small, the worms will quickly eat up the young tender leaves, causing the loss of one or more branches of the tree. An asbestos torch, attached to the end of a pole of suitable length, is an effective way to destroy the nest and worms. The torch is sprayed with a little coal oil and when lighted, held under the post and around the branch where the worms are, the heat kills the worms at once and will not injure the branches. FEW MUSKMELON DISEASES Leaf Blight Causes Large Dead Areas In Leaves Fungus Attacks Stems of AM Plants. (By A. D. SELBT.) Muskmelon leaf blight is a diseast more or less peculiar to the musk melon, although the fungus which causes it has also been found upon cucumber leaves. The leaf blight causes rather large dead areas In the leaves, which are usually distinguished from those of mildew by their larger size and the tendency of the central portion to break out. The prevention of musk melon leaf blight is by no means an easy matter, requiring of itself great thoroughness and carefulness in the application of the Bordeaux mixture and also requiring that the downy mildew shall be watched during the same period.

He said he shot Seelig because the latter held him up and robbed him of $4u0 in a hallway to day. Seelig was a prospective witness for the State in the trial of Police Lieutenant Decker in connection with the Rosenthal murder. According i to the statements of "Ilald Jack" Hose to District Attorney Whitman. he went to Seelig at the request of Becker, asking Seelig to furnish the gunmen to kill Rosenthal.
