Cress, one of ttip np-to»date farmers of Concord township, brought to The Daily Leader office Saturday afternoon a basketful of home grown apples, consisting of The Duchess, Wealthy, Whitney No. 20 and other varieties. They are beautiful in perfec tion, large size and symmetrical, and choice in flavor. Mt. Cress has 120 txees in his orchard, nearly all of which are in l»eaiing. and he estimates that his crop this year will be from 60 to 80 bushels and perhaps more. He com menced establishing his orchard in 1892, out says he discovered that he had to learn by experience and study how to handle his trees. The dry winter of, 181J4 following, many of his trees died, as did also fruit trees in older establish ed orchards, but he persevered and now believes that he has by observation dis covered how to successfully grow apples in this locality under reasonably favor able circumstances. That fruit of al most all kiuds can be raised successfully in Lake county there is no doubt if hor ticulture is engaged in with persever ance and intelligence as has been the case in Mr. Cress' experience. There aie a number of orchards of more or less magnitude in bearing in Lake county, and what is said to be the larg est apple orchard in the west is located in Turner county this state, which [has lieen in bearing and a money maker for its owner for many years. Much observation and study seems to have been necessary on the part of Lake county farmers who have taken an interest in fruit raising, but now that they have many of them decided uion pioper methods of culture others will no doubt profit by their experience, and within a very few year-? the home de mand at least will be supplied by home grown apples. The Daily Leader heartily congratulate* Mr. Cress upon his success and is equally grateful for the generous supply of apples froyn his Lake county orchard. SHE WAS CAUGHT. Madison Society Lady's Experi ence, with Husband's Night "Key a Mile Away. One of Madison's most correct society ladies whose dignity of bearing is mark e«l among her friends, residing on a fashionable residence street of the city, met up witn a mishap the other day that considerably ruffled her usually placid disposition. Very properly gowned for the occasion, she determined on an afternoon out, previously having granted the servant a half holiday. Her generosity with the servant was re s(onsible for a two hours' semi-im prisonment she experienced later on. After the final critical inspection of hei costume as reflected by her mirror, and satisfied that her back hair was alto gether proper, she assumed an '"Oh, I am so glad to see you." smile, and pas sed out the front door of her home— and at tne same instant, click went the night latch and the lady's gown was fast in the door as in the grip of an octopus. Turn whitner she would she was literally attached to her home. She reflected that her innate generosity was responsible for her dilemma. She had generously permitted ner husband the owneisliip of a night key and he in his selfishness insisted on making a companion of it day and niuht, and it was at that moment in his pocket at the office down town. But how should she get it She could not reach the tele phone, the servant was gone, and she did not want to scream—so she quietly stood, as she had a right, at her own door. A way out of the dilemma oc curred to her, and then she reflected that the was not a quick change artist, that the work would have to lie done delilierately with people passing by every moment, and even if she could escape in that way she could not make a hurry up exit from the workl into the sacred privacy of her home foi the reason that she was locked out as well as locked in. So, womanlike, she sat down, not to cry but to reflect. People passing impertinently scrutinized her informal posture on the doorstep, aud the formal manner in which she was attired. One Incoming more curious than the other inquired, "Mis. B., why are you sitting so close to your door?'' and she with almost human intelliffence, replied, "Becan «e!" A colony of mos quitoes in the trellis awakened by the soft words she Uttered as each passerby ogled hei more impudently than the other, speedily attacked their helpless victim and commenced sipping the rich led blood of her face and brow which they found conveniently near the- *ur face, for the imprison**! lady's ONLY A BOQUET. But It Was Oallantly Presented and Was the Beginning of a Happy Day "Scattering wnMs of swniMne" is the easiest tiling in the world and we often wonder why they are not more general ly scattered. Perhaps they are more than we realize. It is the business of a newspaper reporter to see tilings and make a note of them, and early this morning we saw an act of kindness and gallantry that we are sure brought happiness to several people for at least a day and which will be remembeml by one young lady perhaps for years. It was simply the "scattering of little seeds of sunshine," but it was like tele phoning to the heart of big man and getting a cheery, "hello: it's in the right place." A busy business man passing along the street towaid his office, carry inga magnificent bouquet of fragrant dew covered sweetpeas, apparently en grossed in thought of his business. Im pulsively he turned and without a word presented the lovely louquet to a young lady acquaintance whom he met. Board of Regents Let Contracts far Fuel, Etc. The Hadlson State Normal.

The Fort Wayne Electric Works was also emiowered to proceed with the furnishing and install ation of an electric plant at tlie 1 blood was up. The horror of the situation was now upon her. and with visions ot mosquito bite lumps to n:ar her usually smooth and well kept complexion, she overcame her diffidence and called for help. A convenient bicycle rider was at hand and in a moment he sped to ward the down town districts on his errand of mercy. The night key was procured and the lady who was danger onsly near collapse from the torments of mosquitoes and the scrutiny of im pertinent passetsby was released. Too astonished to reply, the young lady ac cepted the gift with an involuntary, "Oh, my!" and the busy business man was on his way without a word. But the smiles and the sparkle of .eyes in that immediate vicinity showed that the seeds of sunshine had been scattered and a full day's happiness would result therefrom. STATE SCHOOLS. Madison school at their bid of $2,nno. The board was also consideung the plans and the bids for the erection of a new liarn at Brookings college. The plans show a fine improvement, the barn being large, modern, and complete in every respect. One feature is a show room for displaying stock, with a central arena and provision for seating around it. Bids are also to be consider ed for the beating plant for the presi dent's cottage at Brookings. Two new memlx-rs of the faculty at the Springfield Normal have been e'ec ted, they leing Fred B.

West Hall is the offer ed as a home for young men who attend the school as it was last year and is not for rent to families or for storage as some suppose. President Beadle s ivs the mistaken reports cause misunder standing and prevents the attendance of young men. At some time in the future it Is hoped the regents may authorize a department of music, vocal and instrumental. This is very much to be desired. Pres. Beadle in Sioux Falls the otner day said to a reporter: "Next year at commencement, being the twentieth anniversary of the first year's work the school I have promised to have a grand reunion of the alumni of 1 he school and as the auditorium will not be complete at that time it will probably be arranged to have a big tent on the campus large enough to accommodate all who come as well as their friends. A social effort will be made to secure the attendance of as many possible i the graduates of the school and thus re new old acquaintances and form new ones between those who have a common alma mater and a community of educa tional interest. Some president of an eastern college will probably be seem ed for an address and the other attrac tions provided will help to make it a day to he remembered in educational circles.''
