Bird, of Arkansas City, upon a two-story frame building, In the sum of $2,500. On November 11, 1895, the property was totally destroyed by fire. The company very magnaminously paid to Edgar M. Bird $2,050, being shy in the sum of $450. This was a direct vio lation of the valued policy law of this State that was in force at that time. Complaint was made to this department and the Connecticut Fire was required to pay to Mr. Bird the additional amount of $450. "The above matter has been in con troversy for some time, and the com pany at one time sent its general agent from Omaha, Neb., to present Its de fense for not paying the claim and com plying with the law.

Attempts are being made to adulter ate flour by the use of ground BoapHtono, called mlnerallne. Efforts are being made to sell It to millers at $12 to $20 a ton for the purpose of mixing It with wheat flour as it is being ground. . This Is a most vicious and injurious fraud and should be carefully watched and every attempt at Its use speedily and vigor ously prosecuted. The soapstone adul teration would not only destroy the flour for food purposes but would make It unwholesome and absolutely injurious to health.

THE ADVOCATE AND NEWS. 1898. 7 farmers' Institutes and agricultural writers criticised when these criticisms are prompted by prejudice, Ignorance and shiftlessness. An indolent farmer never cares to listen to the gospel of better methods simply because it is easier for him to float with the current than It is for him to turn and paddle against it. My experience has taught me that farming to be made profitable must be conducted on the most exacting plan of economy, and every day develops the fact that education and training pay the farmer as they pay others elsewhere in life. And he who would be a suc cessful farmer of the future must do it through the channel of a more thorough agricultural education. Farmers' Tribune. Dutter From Grass. There is color to grass butter that can be nicely Imitated; there is a body and grain to It that can be secured by skill ful handling of cream from milk when no grass is fed, but the flavor of grass butter has never yet been imitated with entire suc...

He attended the convention fortified with arguments from his own rich experiences and from that of his neighbors and other stockmen. Ho came to Topeka to plead a rfghteous cause, and therefore won over all opposition.
