McCoy.

Mr. McCoy was boro in Harrison County, Ohio, Octoter 6, 1838, and died at his home in Nortonville October 2, 1012. Had he lived until the following Sunday he would have been seventy-four years of age. On November 8, 1859, he was married to Miss Tirzah Borland, and to this union six children, five sons and one daughter, were born. During the civil war Mr.

McCoy was a member of the Q.Jth Ohio Volunteer Infantry. In the year of 18G8 he Cflmn to Kansas, and the follo-ving spring to fatten a thousand steers, and yet the seed corn oonditions in Kan-sat were better than in any other western state.

Every argument in favor of selecting teed corn from the field in early fall can be used in favor of September selection of teed of ail the sorghums, broom corn, kaf-flr, milo and also saccharine sorgsum. No one will ever get a uniform ripening of any sorghum until he selects from the field uniform ripening beads. We should get together in a big concerted movement this fall for selecting sorghum seed early. I am going to ask each of the 380 farmers institutes in Kansas to get behind the movement and to get the names oi members who will this year select from the Held before the last of September uniform ripened heads of kallir, milo and sweet sorghums, and ten days be of Jefferson county met in regular session at Oskaloosa Monday, made AUTUMN.

Here's a hard luck storty out of the One night as the devil sat musing alone In the midst of his cozy warm fire, And trying to figure the difference in guilt Tween a thief and an all around liar, His memory turned to scenes of his youth, Aad his eyes filled with hot, boiling tears. So he took down his ledger and turned to a page Dated back about six thousand years. "I suppose," he said, as he glanced through, the book "I am doing the best that I can, For my business denotes a continual increase Ever since the creation of man.

There are voters in the county who are Inclined to think that Republicans and Bull Moosers might as well come (o the parting of tha way first as last. The contention narrows dowa to Taft and Roosevelt.
