Hotrt s ri<-n<i»S!i a. v, opting-. TKfi 6rst meeting of the Bock , SJver Horticultural Society for 1897 met at the spacious and elegant residence of Mr. C, U. (testing, In Coloma township, Wednesday. It was a beautiful day and before the noon hour had arrived about forty people had assembled. The company was composed of peq- ple who wera thoroughly interested In growing small fruit and were ready to grasfr at et«ry information that was imparted by the knowing one. Social chat', Agricultural and Horticultural topics were Indulged in until the announcement of dinner, which had been very thoughtfully andsumptuous- jy prepared by the ladies. After all had done justice to themselves and the feast, everybody, With tooth pick in hand, proceeded to the parlor, where the meeting was called to. order by the Chairman, Mr. Clark Powell, who by a few well chosejn_ rjjnatks^ stated the object of the meeting. After this reiad- lhg~bf the Infinites by "Mr sT'Ofon"," of Dixon, Mr. Hartwell, also of Dixon, stated that it would be a good idea for this society to become subject to the State Horticultural Society so that we could enjoy all. of its benefits. Mr. Hartwell than spoke on small fruit culture. He said, that the same kind of experience was had by the small fruit grower as was had by the stock raiser; kind of fruit, kind of soil and above all good care were the essentials necessary to success in fruitgrow- ing. Spring was the time to set all kinds of fruit, except currants and gooseberries. Surface cultivation is the proper thing. Slough hay was a good protection for strawberries in winter. Grape culture and pruning was ably handled by the veteran grape raiser, ^Hartwell gave Op<*n With n l.tingh. The program to be rendered by the Woodlawn Debating Society at tho Academy of Music Tuesday evening, Mar. 16, has been arranged. The open- Ing number will be a farce, "Half an Hour in a Newspaper Office." It was written by Scott Williams and is full of laughable situations and bright sayings.

Can apples be raised in Illinois was emphatically answered in the affirmative by Mr. Hartweli. Breed's Weeder was highly recommended. Mr. Dwight Herrlck, of Bochelle, gave a very interesting paper on potato culture. The best soil was a two year old clover sod. Medium sized potatoes cut so as to have about two eyes to the piece is the best. Breed's Weeder was the best tool to cultivate with, in connection with eagle claw plows. Potatoes should go through the sweat before 'going into the, cellar. Cool cellars are the proper thing. For a standard variety, the early Ohio is one of the best. Sulphur and corrosiveTubllmate are recommended as good preventives for scab on potatoes. - Subsolling in the fall is all right for the potato patch"MrrLewls"Ulm7 of Montmorency, exhibited about ten varieties of potatoes and gave some very valuable .experience in regard to different kinds, care etc. Mr. Ulm is Globe Defenders, Help Make Several Val- ! lant KnlghU.

There will be three such meetings this year. The next will be in or near Dixon, some time in June. It would be well for all who are largely or moderately engaged in fruit growing to at tend these meetings. A MEMBER. THE HEAVENS FOR MARCH. v;Sam Fohr,:wlth a request,Eaton Andreas. ,. E.

It may be seen late, in the afternoon; indeed, it may be better seen then with a small telescope than at night. In the telescope It Is crescent shaped. , Jupiter rises at sunset, reaching the meridian now about midnight, and at the end of the month at half past nine o'clock. It is by far the brightest object in the eastern sky, the first magnitude star, tjlrlus, being the only star approaching it in brightness.' In the telescope Jupiter is a sight to be long remembered, ; The four bright satellites ranged on either side in line with the planet's equator, the bright surface of the planet, marked by dark bands, interspersed with brilifant markings, and the great red spot, all go to make the planet one of 'the most beautiful of telescopic objects. The planet is now in the constellation Leo, near the second magnitude etar Begulus, in the handle ot the sickle. Mass is on the meridian at about B onset. Ifc'is better seen now than later in the year. The markings, which hive made Mars so interesting a subject of etudy by. astronomewir are not very aatisfaotoi'lly seen in a small telescope. r Tha planet 4a now in Tar us, between the stars whi^h mark the tips of the horns of the bull. Saturn is in Libra, and is a a conspicuous object in the weatera sky in the early morning. It rises now at 11 p.m. By the end of the month it will dee at 9 o'clock.

On Sunday morning these were given the right hand of fellowship and received into the full membership of the church. The sermon at this service was from Colossi- ana 2:6, and was especially appropriate. A large congregation was present and the service was beneficial to all. ' The choir rendered a splendid anthem.

"All of the. various committees reported that progress was being made, but the lack of funds is staring the committee in the, faoe. It is rumored on the streets that if the funds cannot be raised, by which Galesburg can do itself justice, that the encampment may yet be held in Danville, where all the money heeded has been pledged..

Bockford Bepubllc: One "of the hibited in the city today by J. H. Blo'ugh, of 124 Buckbee street. The interesting object was a portion of a tree trunk With a branch grown to it at both ends, presenting the shape of a bow and string. The peculiar, formation is from a tree cut in the timber along Kilbuck Creek and the ..sort of wood is black oak. The portion of trunk bearing this ingrown branch was about twenty feet from the ground and the trunk is three inches through. From the lower portion of thia a branch sprouted in the past. It grew ; up ward and by some strange phenomena took root with its top in the trunk above. Together the tree and its bow branch grew until the branch was about half the size of the trunk. It is indeed a curiosity. MARRIED AT PALMYRA. AUvartUea In M Chicago Paper for a Cor. respondent for JTun or Fa*time.

The management also promise the introduction of the very latest and best electrical device for the projection of motion-pictures in this country—"The Animatescope," in a choice collection of American and foreign scenes of rare interest.

Some 987 horses have been examined by the Governor- and hia staff, In the search for a buitable animal for Mr. Vau Cleave. The suggestion that the colonel have a rday of horses, changing his inount every three or four blocks whenever it got tired, was rejected by Van Cjeave with scorn and yesterday Colonel I3'iair came to the front .with aetill brighter idea. It was that one of'the large .wooden horses which moves on~wheBlsand~is used by a tobacco firm to, advertise its brand of cigars, be hired.
