Our route from the state fair of Kan- sas at Topeka to St. Joseph Mo. where I wrote last was via Atchison into Leavensworth where I met ex-Senator Ingalls who informed me that he would arrange to make a tour of Texas in No- vember and as he said "would learn from personal observation something of the resources of that great state." He in common with all the great agri- culturists of the country is deeply in- terested in deep.waterat Galveston hav- ing voted for the $6200000 appropri- ation for deepening the harbor at that place. He will visit the principal cities of the state and will doubtless become pecuniarily interested before leaving.

X SUICIDE AND SCIENCE. Why'uit.That so Many Hen Com mlt 8ulcIdo. s Nearly all Methods of Bolf-Murder Havo Been Exhattstodx-A. Baro Thing Among Qrooks but Vashionablo In Homo. A prominent physician who has made a study of suicide said the other day lo a Philadelphia press reporter: Why should a man kill himself? The popular answer is "Because he is cra- zy!" Scientific men easily disprove that but are still somewhat at sea in devising a better answer. Was the philosopher Seneca crazy when he en- tered the warm bath and opened his veins? Were all the hundreds of no- ble Romans who made happy dispatch of themselves insane? Surely not. The Greeks rarely committed sui- cide but at one time it was quite the fashion in Rome. It is the rarest of rarities for a slave to commit suicide though a slave owner often does. Ex- tensive inquiry fails to develop a sin- gle case of American negro's commit- ing suicide thought there has been a few cases among the mulattoes and octoroons. Shall it be sa...

WORLD'S FAIR HOTES Sir Henry Wood of the British roy- M commission aya it is the present intention of the commission to build at the exposition a typical old English manor or hall as the English head quarters He says also that an exact reproduction of Shakespear's house at Stratford-on-Avon will be builijif the necessary space can be secured It is probable that the five territories New Mexico Utah Arizona Okla homa and Alaska will make their exhibit of their resources and products under one roof. They united in a re- quest to that effect and it was granted. Utah however wants to make an ex hibit by herself if her legislature ap- propriates enough money to enable her to do so. The executive committee of tKc Illi- nois woman s alliance has asked for the privilege of making a display at the fair which will show the evil results of child labor.

v' I ) W Jt lr i It ie I'J POULTRY DEPARTMENT. How many says "I can not pay $5 Tor a fowl because' I only keep chicks for my own use. I do hot exhibit and never expect to sell any only for mar- ket poultry!" Now this is the very reason why any person who cares for thoroughbred fowls at all can afford to pay a good price for them. A five- dollar fowl ought to produce five-doU lar chickens and those arc the very ones which will afford the hiot enjoy- ment to those who own them. The very fowls the world over which no one wants to sell are the best. Then it is good logic that. the way to raise the best is to have only the best to breed from It tsoming. They don1t say much about it now but they will. We mean the time when women will take a prom- inent share in poultry interests. They have got to go through all the trials and tribulations of the many and va. tious vicistitudes of the modern occu- pation of the average woman first.

About the Silo There is no need of entering' Into an elaborate discussion or the silage it is evident to alt who have examined the subject that when fairly tried this form of food preservation is sure to make friends and become a permanent addi tion to farm economy. It is interest ing to observe that the opposition comes largely from those farmers who only know of it from heresay and a supcrfici.il examination of the subject. Those who have tried it carefully and have had the longest experience are almost without exception firm friends of the silo. Like many other improvements and additions to our agriculture this form of food preservation was introduced by men of wealth whose farming oper- ations were a pastime. Tins created a prejudice at the very start for it is unfortunately true that the average firmer shows a dislike for anything new brought out by "gentleman farm crs.' Then the silo has ...
