Mr. Games, who has the con tract for drilling wells for the Logansport company, has had much bad luck. He has been drilling north of the city for nearly two months and has not yet reached Trenton roek at either tihe well, on the Rogers farm or the one on the Burnett farm. In drawing the pipe from the Burnett weli.tbe pipe was pulled In two. The waters is rushing out of the well In a four inch stream. The drill is down aoout 600 feet. The Ball Estate. The Indianapolis News states that the Ouster and Home families of this county are heirs to the estate of the late Joseph Ball of Philadelphia. He died la Philadelphia In 1820. His property in the heart of the city, it Is said, amounted to hundreds of acres. It Is also said that the lands were leased for ninety-nine years, and as the time has about expired, the heirs will attempt to gain possession thereof. Of other lands Ball Is credited with having had Is 400 lots in Washington, D. C., 80,000 acres in Virginia and 471,000 acres in Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Tennessee. orNnlte to me at No. 31 Eel Kiver a«, n ue,e»st •ndof Murket street bridge. DK. C. D.

Not every 0110 knows how to even bridle a horse that has been bridled hundreds of times. A Isirge number do not have a smooth temper when the horse refuses to "take the bit" and at once proceed to give him a "bit" of chastisement, which only makes matters worse. Thy horse chat hiis been properly bridled when a colt will rarely forget the lessons learned in youth. The way to do this, says the Iowa Homestead, is These things seem to be greatly increasing of late, and without any ap- >arent cause. We see more men who lack vigor than ever before. We meet more women who seem broken- lown thin in the past. Surely there must oe a cause for all this—and here is. These troubles can arise from but ne cause, namely: Disordered kld- ieys or urinary organs. Indeed 15 is now admitted that the region of the ower body Is the prime source of most physical Ills. When the kidneys become diseased the blood be- omes poisoned and all the troubles uch as sileeplessness, lack of appe- ite, nervelessness, restlessness, tired nd despondent feelings follow in its wake. The truth is, people are not well but they should be, and they can be If they would only take the means of recovery that are near at hand. In writing apon this subject; Dr. R. A. Gunn, Dean and Professor of Surgery of the United States Medical College, New York, says: "In a large class of ailments where the blood Is In an unhealthy state,— where there is no evidence of organic mischief but where the general health i» depleted, the face sallow, the urine colored, constituting the "bilious" condition,—the advantage gained from the use of Warner's Safe Cure is remarkable. I find also that in Brlgbt'a disease it seems to act as a solvent of albumen; to soothe and heal inflamed membranes, and wash out epithelial debris which block up the urine bearing tubes." It is undoubtedly true that Ameri- caos, as a people, are in a more or less serious condition, and that there are complaints which have become national diseases. But it is also true that modern science has provided an adequate remedy which is able to fully control It and supplant sickness and misery by health and happiness. A New Game. With tbe long winter evenings uncl the entertainments aud parties which they bring comes the old qnestion, "Isn't there something new that we can play?" It is always difficult to find anything altogether fresh and original, and some of tbe older games, a trifle worked ove and freshened up, will be found quit as interesting as anything else. For instance, there are many won games, brir not one of them is quite lik the little fuiimaker known as the "waK rhapsody." lu playing this game each of th guests is called upon to choose one word This word is written upon a little care furnished by tbe hostess. It may be au adjective, a verb, a common or proper nonn or any other word that may sng gest itself. Tbe cards are then gatherec up, and the hostess writes all the worcis, on a large piece of white paper with a blue pencil, so that when hung up it can be seen all over the room. Then each guest is invited to write a short story in which every one of the words appears, all of them being used grammatically and in a manner to make sense. The time of work should be limited to ten minntes. When the storius are complete, the authors are invited ito read them alond, or the hostess collects and reads them herself. The results are often very amusing. The rhapsody al:=o makes a good, school exercise. BKIDL1NG A COLT. to smooth, out the foretop so it will not be in the way, grasp the brow baud of the bridle in tbe right hand and the bit with the left. The bridle is thus held in position, and with the fingers of the left hand entrance to the month is made by pressing against the gums between the incisor and jaw teeth. This will seldom fail to cause him to open his month, and the bit can easily be put in, but it should not be done suddenly or violently. After tha bit is in the month the ears should be carefully and gently -placed ia position. Training ot Children. Do not coddle your children, for it is j J grea,i mistake, and one that is bound to resiult in great delicacy and discomfort. Boys are often made delicate by overcareful mothers. Girls are still more frequently protected from every blast that blows as though it would kill them instead of helping to make them strong and healthy. To mothers of young children I would say, gead /bar children out in all weathers but heavy ruin, unless they are weak in the chart, then remember that an east wind will do your child no good. A gr<sat evil in training girls is that they are not taught to use their muscles. They should do to in moderation, and there will ba .'tittle fear, of "strained backs" or any other siisciiief. _ Jonn jcopxt Iran nuKautiT by ocins dashed against an electric Kent pole In a runairay while en ironr* *> £bor£fe at Cedar £*£*. 1*- A MIXING CAMP. the eyes of the world to the extreme northwestern part of our continent. That hyperborean region, wrapped fora large part of the year in aaow and ice, is today what California and Australia were in the not distant past. So tbe ar- gonauts are swarming thither, defying tbe rigors of nature, the difficulties of getting there and the more serious difficulties of living there, once tbe pick and shovel are in hand. It is an old story now. the wonders of tbe Klondike goldfields, the rich finds of the precious metal and the dramatic tales of suffering under the arctic pall of a long and dreadful winter. Indeed this personal element of human pri vation transforming the scramble for wealth into a tragedy is largely responsible for the intense interest of the world. It is tbe sympathy with suffering which the exploitation of the newspaper writer finds so available, as well as veracious accounts of glittering mil lions unearthed. This is the advantage, strange to say, which the inhospitable waste of British America have over the Alaskan goldfields in fascinating -the public attention. There is not much romance in gold getting where it is pursued, under conditions of comparative ease. All the recent accounts of auriferous development in our so called arctic province, in great measure indeed a misnomer, point to a future rivalry •which will make pale the golden glitter gilding the other side of the line. The immense mineral resources of Alaska have been recognized in theory for many years, but it is only recently that they have been made tangible facts. I have been deeply interested in accounts brought back to us by travelers and explorers touching specially that immense region which depends on Cook's inlet as its source of supplies and its ocean port. To avoid diffuseness, I have not put the information given in the form of an interview, but have collated and condensed tbe facts. Cook's inlet, about 700 miles west from'"Sitka, the Alaskan capital, is about 150 miles long and from 75 to 25 miles in width, presenting on one side mountainous and rugged bluffs and on the other tbe plateaus and parklike terraces of the Kenai peninsula. One of the indentations of the mouth of the inlet, where the town of Homer has beeu located within tbe last two years, is the finest natural harbor on the coast. Far up the inlet the tidal base (for there is a rise of nearly 30 feet) presents difficulties to navigation, though not insuperable. But nothing could be safer or more convenient than the depth of iv which in the harbor floats big uisbips at the very edge of the land ;.. all limes of tide. The region about cook's iulet, famous since its discovery by the eminent English navigator as the paradise of Alaska, presents aspects of the most fascinating interest. The ensemble is one of marvelous beanty, ris- iug sometimes to tbe sublime. Nature's convulsions are here still active, even if they ba but tbe expiring throes w monstrous activities. The traveler sailing inco Cook's inlet sees three volcanoes still fiercely spouting at times, with eternal pillars of smoke hy day and 01 fire by night. Glaciers ponr rbeniielvcf. into the sea, and not far is tbe inrericj may be seen hot springs und geysers ai- most as wonderful as those of Yellowstone park or of Iceland. But the awakened interest in this region does not arise from its wealth in the beauty and rnarvelousness of nature so much as in its wealth of mineral deposits. That Alaska as a whole is one fniore vrork. All the placer diggings are extraordinarily rich in color and average from §1 to $20 in yield per cubic yard of gravel. The richness of tbe placers increases with tbe depth, which in any cases is estimated to be GO feec dovrn to bedrock. .Most of the gold so far taken out seems to have been from the surface strata. J.n the few cases where bedrock has been reached the yield has been fabulously rich. An exhibit of such a yield was shown the writer, consisting of nuggets and coarse gold, and its contents ranged from the size of a baby's fist down to that of buckshot. This product came from the near vicinity of the town site of Homer. On the west side of the month cf Cook's inlet is found a mineralogical phenomenon so remarkable as to call for the most curious interest Gokl generally runs through quartz in veins. But here is a mass of mineralized rock, 20 miles long and 1,000 feet ia height, where the gold appears to be diffused through all parts of the material. Assays taken at random have shown a yield ranging from f 1 to $150 per ton, and tbe quantity ,of gold ore is literally inexhaustible 'if the facts alleged by the mining experts are tr«o. Of course quartz mining in this region at present gives p!ace to the placer workings, as the latter can be conducted with success on a fur less costly scale. The placer ground now open (intends for a radius of CO miles from tbe npper end of Cook's inlet, ;*ur! there is every reason to believe tba: it will bo greatly extended with tbe rapid inflnx of adventurers. But with all,the increasing circuit of operations the new town of Homer, located on a long sand spit which shoots out between Kacbek- mak and Cbugachik bays at the moutu of Cook's inlet and blessed with a perfect harbor, must be the metropolis of tbe region. Indeed it seems likely to be the natural center of distribution and port of outlet for the whole locality. This good fortune appears to be specially insured by the immense coal measures, which lie at tide water adjacent the town in great clifflike hills. This is the only coal deposit known on the Pacific coast north of 'Vancouver, and, according to the United States government report, the coal is of a superior quality of its kind, which is brown lignite of a semibiluminous quality. Tlie facilities of mining and shipment make it a probable rival, even for the San Francisco and Hawaiian markets, of coal mines much farther south, besides rendering it an invaluable factor in the prosperity of Alaska in general and more specifically of £be adjacent region. The presence of petroleum oil in tlie vicinity lias also beeu satisfactorily tested and promises a valuable industry in the early future. Aside from the richness of the gold deposits, the conditions under which A Great Slaughter SALE OF WINTER SHOES "Which innst be closed out at one-third their value to make room for our large Purchase of Spring Goods, These shoes are n'rst class and must sell.

In the Cook's inlet country men can work for seven months of the year instead of three, as in the Klondike, for the climate is the most favorable known in subarctic latitudes, and the question of supplies is readily solved. Sojourners can go and come with ease any month of the year. Last year there was a monthly visit of a steamer, and next year, it is expected, this will become weekly. The Japan current, sweeping near by, gives a great blandness to the climate, which is yet free from the extraordinary dampness of the Sitka summer. There is a lush growth of grass on the Kenai peninsula, where garden vegetables and small fruits also flourish in their season. The bays swarm with excellent food fish, notably the finest salmon on the Pacific coast, a fact which has developed a large and growing canning industry. Splendid big game shooting—bear of several varieties, including the grizzly;.moose, :deer and the bighorn— invites the sportsman, as do also innumerable flecks of geese/ducks, brants and swans. It is a saying'in the region that no one need go hungry at any season who can pull a trigger, be be ever so poor a shot. On the whole, it appears to be quite sure that the mining adventurer can prosecute his toils here not only •without the terrible hardships which attach to life in the Klondike country, but with no greater difficulties to meet than are inseparable from such enterprises in any part of the world, Next year there is a prospect, too, that a company which has extensive interests in this, region, and after whose ruling spirit the town of Homer has been christened, will arrange for numerous and conveniently si mated storehouses of supplies, which will enable the Cook's inlet miner to satisfy his needs with the least possible friction. It is believed that not less than 1,000 men-will seel: their fortunes in this direction in tha spring. This should be the beginning of a movement of great significance in the development of a magnificent mining field. JOSEPH TOBET. One of the oldest and best in the state.

MOORE,' Pres't. ~ WHEAT BY IRRIGATiON. Preparation of the Soil— Kind of Seed to Sow— When to Irricate. A -writer who has had long experience with -wheat under irrigation in Colorado, writing in the. Edgemont Express, emphasizes the importance of deep plowing, pulverizing the soil and having the surface in a smooth condition; to receive the water from the lateral easily, evenly and uniformly. Then sow the grain, after being immersed in blue vitriol water to kill the stunt, a* early after Feb. 1 as frost will permit. This applies to spring wheat. The best implement for the purpose up to the present is the press dri'l. As to seed, the writer quoted gives preference to two varieties — namely, White Australian and Defiance — both, of which he considers particularly adapted to the soil ana climate of Fall River county. Titp Defiance is the miller's choice and brings a higher price in the market. Why? Because it makes three pounds more flour to the bushel than any other variety grown in the west. If this is true of Defiance, why do you uphold the Australian variety? Although it is softer wheat, yet under the same conditions it yields from two to eight bushels more than Defiance. Therefore if the farmer has to take 5 cents per hundred less for Australian with this yield he is still ahead. Either of these varieties will stand until fully ripe, and stand to be handled without shelling to any great extent. The subject when to irrigate is considered in this instance under favorable conditions. Different conditions would, therefore, make exceptions to this rule. "If the soil is in best of condition and the season favorable, the first irrigation should take place when the grain becomes a solid ruac upon the ground and is stooliug. If thoroughly and carefully irrigated at this time, it should carry it along until the head shoots out and the berry is forming. Then it should! be thoroughly aoaked again to give plumpness to the berry arid make the head fill well. Under the most favorable conditions this will make a wheat crop that will yield from SO to 60 bushels per acre if the soil is fertile enough, to produce it be- Foreed Into It.
