A PENITENT A Burg'ar Is Brought Back to the Fold on Chrstmas Morn. By emma edmonds Copyright, 1910, by American Press Association. Mike Conover, burglar, the day be- fore Christinas stood on a sidewalk in a great city and watched the shoppers. On the other side of the street was u large Jewelry store, in and out of which throngs of people were going ami coming, many of them carrying the goods they had bought rather than risk not getting them before Christmas morning if left to be sent home by the delivery wagon. Mike was watching for some pros- perous looking person to come out of the store, his pockets bulging with •mall packages—he knew the small •nes to be the most valuable—intend lug to follow him home and during the sight relieve him of them. Presently be hit upon an elderly gentleman with mutton chop whiskers and a gold head- #d cane, who, as lie emerged from the •tore, was cramming the said small packages down into his pocket. Mike followed him, noted the house he en- tered a...

For the Farmer Use of Green Hanuring Crops. BY L. E. CALL, Kansas Agricultural College. We would prefer cowpeas to clover aa a green manring crop to improve quickly an old worn- out piece of land. The most practical method of green manur- ing Ihe field would undoubtedly be to prepare the field and seed to oats next spring. As soon as the oats are harvested if the ground is free from trash and in mellow condition the field should be double disked, harrowed, and the cowpeas drilled in with a disc drill at the rate of 1 bushel to the acre. The sooner after harvest that this can be done the better. When Plowing is Needed. If the field is at all trashy, or if the ground is hard it would undoubtedly pay to plow for the cowpeas but the plowing should be shallow, not over 3 or 4 inches and should be done soon after harvest if possible as the cow- peas should be in not later than the middle of June. After plow- ing, a fairly good seedbed should be prepared, possibly by a single disking and h...

«1 m ssf* This Newspsp^r-and Your Store. m Would you consider that this newspaper was well managed if it issued according to the mood of its pub- lishers instead of at regular, stated and invariable in- intervals? Would you think it a good newspaper if it printed a 12-page issue at one time and a one-page, hand-bill size, issued at another time? Would you feel that it was serving its constituency effectually if, now and then, it suspended issue entirely—to be resumed at some time when the publishers felt inclined? Your store serves its patrons with store news thru its advertising. They assume that there is always store news worth telling—stbre news that is important to them. Is it not a poor policy for a store, as it would be for a newspaper, to serve its patrons in a spasmodic, unde- pendable way? If your store is important to the people of the city, your advertising is important to them all of the time—not merely now and then. The size of your advertising space should not vary any...

The Home Circle Thoughts on Christmrs. The time draws near the birth of Jesus, the Christ. Over the world comes a change, momenta- ry but wonderful. For one day the principal motives of human effort cease to act and give away to their opposite*. Charity re- places greed; kindness replaces jealousy and hate: brotherhood replaces competition. Rivalry in acquisition yields to rivalry in giving. For one day in the year the conduct of tha Christian world conforms not merely in hollow pretense, but in reality, to the precepts of Jesus. There is on earth, if not peace, at least the willingness to cease from strife, and if one day is a little too brief to perfect the feeling and practice of good will toward men, still, considering how great the change is from ordinary hab itudes, we contrive a fair imita- tion of it. Considering, to), that the Christmas spirit is ex- pected to last for one day only, the world shows, it must be ad- mitted, great respect to the Gal- lilean shepherd by taking ...

A FAMOUS PICTURE Rosa Bonheur's Stirring Master- piece, "The Horse Fair." A PRIZE THAT FRANCE LOST. The Artist's Native Land Permitted the Great Canvas to Find a Home Ir This Country—The Story of the Painting and Its Replicas. One of the chief glories of the Metro- politan museum in New York is Rosa Bonheur's stirring masterpiece, "The llorse Fair," a picture which for its. Irresistible movement and living por trnlture of man's most useful friend holds a unique position in the annals of art and the affections of lovers of paintings. Few, however, are acquainted with the intlmute history of that notable canvas, and fewer still ore aware that there are no less than five horse fair pictures in existence. The one in New York is the original and, it will be re- membered, was first the property of A. T. Stewart and then purchased for the Metropolitan by Cornelius Vanderbtlt for 230,000 francs. It was painted in Paris, the models used being the horses of the I'nris Om- nibus company and a ...

Root crops ate easily caught by the frost. A little extra cov- ering may be nt-ccessary. Whether in times of prosperity or hardship Old Brindle is the farmer's standby. The eeparator, silo and manure spreader are part and parcel of modern dairy equipment. Don't be in a hurry to slaught- er the old dairy sire. Hold him until the new one has proven himself worth keeping. Put a rack or low trough in the calves' stall, fill it with bright clover or alfalfa hay and see how soon they will begin to nibble at it. Cold milk will put a calf's in- sides workin's to the bad in short order. The temperature should be the same as that of milk as it comes from the cow. How many of our folks find it pays to cook feed for ocws? There seems to be a difference of opinion on this subject and we would like to have a few ...
