For this purpose a tract of .'100 acres has just been set aside, and as rapid lv as possible it will be put into alfalfa. At present it will not support a large number of animals under experiment, but when the tract is finally developed it will provide for the fattening off of 250 cat tle and 2,f00 lambs each year. It is expected that this will de velop a line of work which will be of great value to the live stock industry.

The ques tion to decide, according to the court, was whether the accused man was mentally capable of go ing to trial on the charge or not. The matter of his guilt or inno cense of the crime was not con sidered. The jury decided that he should go to trial. When the man was brought in he entered a plea of guilty, which means a sentence to life imprisonment. There seems no question but the man is irrational at times and not in his right mind when he mur dered the old trapper. Schiebe also burned Mr. Vollmer's barn and was indicted for this crime.
