J If practicable, hum the pasture over thoroughly eaily iu the spring. Mitsulpher with the salt given the cattle uue patt of sulphur to three parts of salt. Kegiu uot later than April ijth greasing the legs and under parts ol all cuttle, and repeat it once a week all iiuiiiier. While greasing the cattle look carefully for any ticks that may have escaped Hie grease or allarhed themselves to the upper parts of the body, and il any are found, pick them off and burn. The grease nay be one part kerosene and two parts any cheap sort convenient, such as cuttuu seed oil. If a little sulphur and tar he added the effect will be prolonged and increased. The grease prevents young ticks from getting on the cattle and kills those already on by plugging the small openings in the body through which they breathe. II the greasing and hand-picking be done thoroughly and no ticks allowed to drop in the pastures, lanes or lots for four or five months duiiug the warm season, the eff.it t will be suc cessful, Either of the first two methods, when it can be adopted, is always cer tain to exterminate the ticks; but the third is not applicable to large herds, and will fail unless it is carefully and thoroughly carried out, No Pity Shown.

A Remarkable Killing, liliimoii. lud, July IJ.-John Terrell, a wealthy farmer, living near IVlroleum, nine mile's limn here, killed his son in law, Mclvin tance Wolfe, this allot noon, tiring both barn-Is of a shotgun into his head as Wolf lay 011 a doctor's operat ing tabic to have a leg umputaleil, necessitated by a wound tiom Ter rell's gun, lired a shoit time In-line.

While a crowd stood outside watching the doctor, Terrell faun as remuneration for his toil.

For putting in prime condition any horse or mule the best of all remedies is Ashcraft's Condition Powders. These Powders are won derfully effective because they cre ate apnetite, the digestion is made perfect, worms and parasites de stroyed, and the system cleansed of all gross humors. The Pow ders fatten but never bloat. Ashcraft's Condition Powders are wrapped in doses. In fact, in their preparation the same care is used that a druggist would exer cise in the filling of a physician's prescription. High grade and real merit is the first consideration. Ashcraft's Powders consist of small doses, prepared from the purest and highly concentrated in gredients, that have been found beneficial to horses and mules. Ashcraft's Condition Powders always high grade are not to be classed with the many balky, good-for-everything powders now on the market. Ask for Ashcraft's, the kind put up in doses, and good for horses and mules only. -Martin tried many Una. of CoMltloa tSrw Vrs, I a.si.lnr A.hor(l U hel mi IS Market.

A scientist has tliscoercd thai lis lay eggs in the daytime be cause at night they ate roosters. Law cannot make a man moral. but it can make him decidedly un comfortable if he is immoral. Just Issause two men have au understanding Is-twis-n them they ire not necessarily half w illed. There is likely to lie a bitlcr taste in a mans mouth after he has been forced to eat his ow n words. Many a woman would gladly recall her past, but the average man is satisfied if he can get his presents back. Woman is evidently a special dispensation of Providence to pre vent mini s conceit trom riming iway with him. The trouble with trouble is thai most people can' t distinguish Is tweeu the genuine article ami the counterfeit. If a man is unable to boast ot what his auccster accomplished, it is up to him to do something ol'his own account. Find a man who has accomplish 1 anything iu life and you will have discovered one who attends strictly to his own business. Never stop to explain your ac tions.
