I*, In common hand plows the bottom pressure or friction may be lessened by getting the team as near the plow as possible. It is true that the longer the traces the steadier the plow will run, but if the land side and point are long we may get the team back where they can do a good deal of lifting and still have the plow run steadily. We should choose a hand plow with a short beam and along bottom, in sulky plows one which is so arranged that both the bot­ tom and side pressure is carried on wheels. The harder the moldboard of a plow the easier it will "scour," and the less friction there will be. Also the easier will it break if there are solid stones to be encountered. The same may bo said of plowshares. When steel shares are used, and no stones are found, it is well to have the shares tempered hard by heating to dull red 'after sharpening and plunging in water. If there are stones in the land, the shares should be softened by being allowed to cool slowly after sharpening. They wi...

Wednesday afternoon, slioi tl.v after 5 o'clock, Jack Cameron, the tin^ Hinitli, who was working on the roof of the new Tonn block, happening to look westward, saw what he thought was smoke comingfrom the the top of the Interstate flouring mill. Jack immediately gave the alarm, and the tire department came out, the chemical engine in the van. At first the firemen rushed toward the Maurin building, but the men on the roof yelled "flour mill!" and the boys went^in that direction as fast as they could. The carts and engine were fastened behind teams and made remarkably good time to the mill, startling Messrs. Cawley and Erwin, who were in the office. The "fire" was simply the dust from the ventilator at the top of the mill. There is always a lot of dust on the tilats, and the violent wind, taking it up, made it look from a distance, very much like smoke. The depart­ ment returned in s...

Strenuous Efforts Made Rescue the Men of No Avail. to PITKIN, Colo., June 9. —News reached here chat four men were suffo­ cated in the Alpine tunnel Saturday afternoon. An engine had run into the tunnel, which is 1,776 feet loilg, with a crew of several men,. to siphon out an accumulation of water held in by dirt cave. The veiisilation of the tunnel is poor and the smoke of gas from the engine made the. air so stifling that the men soon prepared to leave. As the engine was backing out a man was discovered lying across the track and the engineer reversed, and running further into the tunnel, where all the men were quickly Onrcome by Suffocation.

PATROLSTHEGULF The Cfulser Raleigh Sent to Enforce the. Neutral Ity Laws. FILIBUSTERING MUST STOP, Even if the Government Has to Commence Action on Shore.

LIVELY FOR ITS SIZE, The Sale of State Grass Seed Furnishes Some Excitement. The Rich Prairie Combina­ tion Didn't Have Things Their Own Way. The public sale of state grass stumpage at the court house Satur­ day attracted a few farmer# who de­ sired grass from state land, and sales to the amount of about $75 were made by H. A. Fretz at fair prices. Some fun wap furnished by the tac­ tics of one crowd of fellows from Rich Prairie, who had arranged all the details .f the sale to their satis­ faction—but not to the profit of the state. The stumpage in one district was parceled out before the bidding began, and it was proposed to get the rights for practically nothing. Some of the best pieces in the county are in the Rich Prairie country, and when tracts were offered that would cut from 20 to 50 ton of hay some member of the combine would bid frojn 25 to 50 cents. Fretz would re­ fuse to receive such a ridiculous bid, and then the roar would begin. A few sales of stumpage were made in t...
