much experience as a peace, officer.
He was several years deputy sheriff,
and for a number of years Chief of

police chief in Florida. For some two
years Mr. Hagan has been a deputy

value of which should be $150. This
we did. This year, however, we are
not wanting just any old book that
somebody else does not want, but we
want some of the best books from the
best libraries in the town. For in
stance, we want Scott's Works; Coop

Thackery Works; Good History;
some good works in science. We
would like also to increase the num

we are subscribing onlv to the Lit

National Geographical Magazine. We
want to add to this list the World's

That does sound like a miracle, and

method, and If any farmer has the pa

Each grain is planted separately In a
sunken bed about fifteen inches deep
and three and a half feet In width.
As soon us the grain sprouts the little
blade Is covered with a thin layer of
earth about an inch and a half in
depth. The result is that you get three
stalks Instead of one. At the end of
three weeks the hoe comes Into use
again, and the three stalks being cov
