A Case of Ingratitude.
Unmindful of what F. D. Coburn has done
for Kansas, the legislature of that state has
refused to permit the circulation of his "red
line" series of agricultural and live stock in
formation, if his name is attached to the
This is a petty exhibition of jealousy. Co
burn has done as much for the advancement
of Kansas as its freak legislatures have ac
complished in retarding progress.
It begins to look as though Kansas is too
contracted a sphere for a man of Coburn's

An advertisement of "Kruger's Orchard
Remedy" in the Sunnyside Sun, which
claims to be a "fertilizer, an insect destroy
er, and a terror to the fruit pest," has the
endorsement of Orlando Beck, fruit inspec

A stereoptican was used to throw the-hymns
and scripture reading upon a screen.
The poor clothes idea is one that keeps
many away from some churches, but if it
wasn't for that it would be something else.
Ben Davis Apple.—Professor E. S. Goff
said : What would we have done this season
wtihout the Ben Davis? Probably three
fourths of the apples that have come to the
Madison market since November have been
of this variety; and only this variety has
been sold at a price that a poor man could

Who know best how to use it;
Health means wealth,
Wealth can't buy health,
So be sure we don't abuse it.
In color the apple has borrowed the
brightest colors of the rainbow. Some vari

some the green of the ocean waves; others
are globes of gold; while still others are
crimson globes that swing to and fro like
spheres of fire in forests of green leaves. In
flavor the apple is more or less aromatic,
