STHE BANNE R=DEMOCRAT; VOL. XIV. LAKE PROVIDENCE. EAST CARROLL PARISH, LA., SATURDAY. JANUARY l1, 1902. NO. 13. The gtorg of an Unpretentious Ma. SBy CyWarman. A young Englishman stood 'in the New World, alone, utterly unknown, watching a freight train moving out of a new town, over a new track. A Pinch-bar, left carelessly by a section gang, was picked up by the pilot of the locomotive. It was caught in the cyllnder-cock rigging, with the result that it wrecked it. Muttering softly the driver climbed down and began the difficult task of disconnecting the disabled machinery. He was not a machinist. Not all en gine drivers can put a locomotive to Xether; in fact. the best runners are 3ust runners. The Englishman stood by, and when he saw the man fumble his wrenches offered a hand. The driver, with some hesitation, gave him the tools. In a few minutes the crip pled rigging was taken down, nuts were replaced, and the discarded metal was tossed by the fireman on the rear of the tank. "A...

CORN FODDER AND HAY FOR S1 STOCK. s It is difficult to make a proper com parison between corn fodder and hay, t because the quality of either largely depends upon the curing. Bright, green corn fodder, shredden or cut 'r fine, is superior to improperly cured al hay, while good hay is far superior to t( corn fodder that was not cut down un- d, til the leaves turned yellow. If fodder bh is tender and juicy the animals will t< prefer the stalks to the leaves, as the se stalks are rich in sugar, but much de pends upon the stage of growth at tt which the stalks were harvested. VALUE OF CORN STOVER. The Maryland Experiment Station to reports that by weighing the ears and stover of corn, and analyzing them, they found x,53o pounds of digestible matter in the ears and 1,642 in the P stover, or It2 pounds more of food in c the stover than in the ear. Probably th it was not as rich in percentage of pro- lii tein as was the ear and grain, but it ft was certainly too valuable to be st wasted...

And he was simply echoing her words of the night before. "All ready, Alice," he said lightly, 80 Alice flicked the pony with her whip and they were on their way. It was a glorious summer moining and Geoffrey and Alice apparently en joyed the drive--even though the con ditions now were irrevocably changed. Yesterday afternoon she had met him at the train and they had driven back together an engaged pair. But since then their engagement had been ended by mutual consent, and this morning found them merely friends.
