It sometimes becomes micessary to •ook a mess of feed for the poultry or pigs in the winter time, and to do so sometimes requires a fire when it is not •oavenient to build one.

Provide KBG "wiTHEf A BOX both barrel, and box with tight fitting lids. Then, having mixed the feed -with hot water, put it in the inner receptacle and place both lids iti position.

After -the general preliminary court work had .been disposed of the work of scouring a jury to try the case against •Mclmosh was taken up. One of rhe noticeable circumstances attending tlio. scssiions trf the trial up -to Hie presrnl: has r l>eon ihe fact of the gaze of Kr.fi.nk Pottmeyer's young son upon Mclntosh. The little fellow can not bo more than a. dozen years old, but his interest in the case is remarkable. Nearly all of the time his large eyes are riveted upon the prisoner and not a motion seems to have escaped him. TV'hHe other members of the family are evincing all interest 'in conduct of 'the case, the littlo follow is busy studying flie slayer of 'his father, .Xonvirlistamlinir the fact that tin- oxaniiu;ilinii uf ve.uiivmen wa< very mono-tonons. fhe auditorium cif the court room was '.veil tilled and the order exceptionally good. .Such display of .interest on ilu> part of the public-has not boeu kno\vn li>-t'oi-e in Ca>s county. Every question !>y the attorneys and their answers are lis'le.ned to closely and the jury Who siiaH try the case, as well as the' venireinen examined, will 1w known to the crowds who have at- tonded the sessions of court. Aside from the interes- in tho case the g order Js largely due to Sheriff Horn burg aad his Asputies wlio are eon stantly an the court. At 11 o'ckhck. after nearly all th veniremeD: !had been -examined, «ij monotony, of <t!h<;i securing a- jury was relieved by the announcement 'by the attorneys of both sl-drs that the jury WHS aeoepted and -the men in the jurj lK>x were onkrwl 'to ilie sworn. How evor. the State's attorneys changed their mi'mls and fWUliam P.

Suc-'h ati arbitrary ruling by the ctiurt has not been known in the Cas? Circuit court for many years, if ever in its 'history, but the gravity of rln? case ;ui(l its surrounding circumstances justify the decision. The jury selected is composed of substantial farmers who are competent. lx>t-h from their lack of knowledge of •the case and from tlieir ideas of justice to all parties concerned, to carefully weigh the evidence as it is presented, and it is not expected, nor has it been intimated Thar the result will ibe a mistrial. In orfler to secure the jury eighty-one out of the eighty-six reniremen were examined. This. too. is an unusual- thing for this court. AJPTERXOOX SESSION. The f.icr of the jury having been accepted probably caused more interest to be manifested in the case tihis afternoon than in former sessions. An hour before time for convening court dies present than yesterday. The crowd did not semn to be a usual lot of court room habitues, tout ratter an- el emetit of the ibe tier class was in evi deuce, .showing that tlie ca.se will be closely -watched by people anxious to keep up with the case as it progresses When the time came for tne opening of court tihe jury was brought in. The attorneys bearing the fatal Winehestei together with maps of tie scene of the crime also took their places. Witnesses were tlieu -called by the State. • After being sworn the witnesses WiTf ordered by the court to retire from the room and remain away w-hile the testimony -was being given. They were also instructed not to converse on tlve subject regarding- their testimony. The defense also called about a bun dred witnesses wlio will appear -wnen the State lias prosecuted its side. The court li-nrited Tie num'ber of character witnesses to twelve on each side as to the defendant and sis as to the deceased. The -State witihdrew Mrs. Mrnn.eman, a si >ter of the deceased, as a witness in order that she might remain in. the com-t room in company -with the deceased's children. Frank Kistler made the statement for tilie State, in whieli lie carefully re-" f erred to all the items of the story of ihe killing of Franlc Pottmeyer by John Mclntosn. He used a map and jiointed out all the interesting places to be used in presenting the evidence for the State's side. Mr. Kistler told the jury .that the evidence -svonld show that threats 'had been made against Potttneyer by McTctoslh from time to time during a .period of two years past All this and the entire story of the 'State's case was plainly, though forcibly, presented in Mr. KiS'tler's style. every available seat was occupied and th*. sisles were crowded—so much so that it -became necessary for 'the,sheriff to clear them in order to aikrvr proper ventilation. It "was noised about that Misa Lonisa Pottrnerer trotd<J be placed on the stand as the first -witness for "Ow case after its-statement by the attorneys, and this ftict probably accounts lor' the larger -nnm'ber of I»- GEORGE A.

" "" " " " " , Experiments With the Campbell Synten on Prairies of Kanaas and Nebraska. Perhaps the most interesting expert ment that has ever been tried on the plains has been in operation the p rear along the lines of the Burlington railroads., The railroads have endeavorec to solve the problem, of soil culture, and 43 farms iu Kansas and Nebraska have been surveyed for this purpose. The superintendent of these farms is H. "W. Campbell.' Mr. Campbell has proceeded on the theory that if the rnoistnre that falls on the plains can be jrese'rveq there will be no trouble to raise' crops', and his manner of keeping ,he water is by a frequent and deep culture of tlie soil. The farms that he has managed this year have been located in sections where there was little iikeli hood of raising crops without aa exceptional season. As reported in the Chicago deep plowing is a necessity. extracts from the report Mr. Campbell proceeds on the theory that the ground must be worked all the time. He does not allow it to lie idla for a minute, and there is a demand for the big teams and plows of the northwest in' the first process. The soil culture method can be tried by any intelligent farmer, and many will do it on their own account next year, TLe implements required and used on the 4 farms are the plow, harrow, drill and cultivator. The ground is plowed'very dr. -i, sometimes eigbt or ten inches, This is to stir up the subsoil and give t'-a old i-oil on the top a chance to rest. .ifter plowing the ground is packer either with sharp rimmed wheels made for the purpose or with drills that answer the same object. The soil culture method consists in a complete rear rangernent of the top seven inches oi the earth, turning ir as nearly bottom side up as is possible. The plaat food in the soil at the end. of the season very largely is found concentrated in the top four inches of earth, and the principle that is worked upon by the new method is to get this dowu to the bottom of the furrow, where it will receive the cou- servation of the force that is in it and feed the plant roots. The rich soil thus will bei just where the plant roots are growing, and they will receive the full benefit of the supply of strength. Immediately after the plowing the lower tour inches must be packed as closely as possible, so that the moisture than is there can be kept for the long summer' days. By increased attraction the. moisture that does come in the early spring rains will be gathered more in the bottom of the furrow and the evaporation will be felt less. After the deep plowing and the subsurface packing the aexc important step is to keep the upper two inches of the soil loose and dry. This forms a "dust blanket" to cut off the moist earth below from the effects of the air. Water cannot pass through the dry earth from below. Therefore ths dust, blanket saves the moisture of the early rains for the whole use of the plants. The packer follows the plow, and two or three culti- rations are necessary in the fall, whether it rains or not. Thiii is so foreign to all previous plans of the farmers that there is a great disinclination to follow the directions until they have been demonstrated ;by actnal practice. After every lain '-there must be a thorough harrowing, so that' there can be a return of the dust ticket— another innovation that is surprising to faioners who have followed 'old methods. By observing these directions the exjKsiment stations in BonthDaiota have obtained an increase of from SO to 50 per cent OTW tb« yield Co th* fanaif around; tfc«B. - WASHINGTON IX JUSOSIC KEGALIA. for a proper commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the burial of Washington had its inception about two years ago in the grand lodge of Colorado. Since then one after another of tho grand lodges of the United States have appointed committees to take measures for a representation of their Masonic jurisdictions. This national movement, initiated by Masons, 'has extended to all patriotic and civic societies, so that in every city, town, village and hamlet a memorial service will ho held on Dec. 18, 189V). There are cogent re;isons why this movement should appeal with peculiar I'orce to Masons everywhere, for a review of the records of Washington's death and buriiil is beautifully suggestive of the high ideal of fraternal love and charity ever cherished by the Father of His Country. In Canada there are about 4,000 Knights Templars. The Masons of XCTV Jersey have purchased a handsome property in Burlington for a homo for Masons, their widows nnd orphans. The house is brownstone, two stories high, has a mansard roof and contains 26 rooms. There are also a large scone stable and a gate" lodge. In all there are about 72 acres of land in the plot. The place is in excellent condition and has its own gas and water plants. The grand lodge, of Tesas decided that the admission or rejection of persons engaged in the liquor business should be regulated by subordinate lodges. . Arrangements are now being completed for the celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of the grand chapter, which occurs March 13, 1898. As this date falls on Sunday, the celebration will bo held on the date of the regular quarterly convocation, March 8. A memorial medal will be struck in honor of the occasion. The grand lodge of Alabama re-elected all its officers. A silver service was presented to Past Grand Master G. P. Harrison. , At the annual meeting of St. John's lodge of Newport, B. I., one of the oldest Masonic bodies in America, Oliver H. P. Belmont was elected senior warden. It is nayer to be forgotten that proselyt- ing is forbidden in Freemasonry. There is no official station or place in a lodge which is not dignified and not attended by weigh ry responsibilities. It ia even a great responsibility to ba simply a Freemason.
