What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Experience is never limited, and it is never complete. It is an im- mense sensibility, a kind of huge spider web of the finest silken threads suspended in the chamber of consciousness and catching every air borne particle in its tissue. It is the very atmosphere of the mind, and when the mind is imaginative— much more when it happens to be that of a genius—it takes to itself the fairest hints of life; it converts the very pulses of the air into rev- elations.—lienry James. England's Scriptural Place Names. .No other country possesses so many scriptural place names as England, and among these Jericho appears to be the most popular. The name of Jer- icho figures six times on the ordnance maps. Paradise five times and, Nine- veh, Mount Zion, Mount Ararat and Mount Ephraim three times each. In Bedfordshire there is a Calvary Wood and in Dorsetabire a Jordan Hill. Hampshire has u Land of Nod. 'Cam- bridgeshire a Noah's Ark and Worces- tershire a Moab's Wash Pot. Other Scriptural names scattered about the country are Hebron, Joppa, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Gideon and Herod.—Lon- don Chronicle. Hs Meant the Ashes.

This requires a little work on the part of the men in trinsferring the line from a secluded place on the grassy lawn where it is used in summer to a convenient place near the house for use in .„Nyiater. Any line can be readily adjusted by simply setting a post firmly in the ground at a proper distance from the south side of the house or other con- venient building, screwing a long - necked patent pulley on to this pole, and then fastening two common pul- leys, at convenient distances and heights, on the posts of the porch or on the, walls of other buildings used. The clothesline is then stretched around this triangle of pulleys in one continuous circuit. The obiect of this device is to prevent personal expo- sure to the cold, as far as possible, by utilizing the protection which the south side of a building will give in shielding the worker from the winter winds. The feet and the bottom of dress skirts will also be protected from snow, as the person can stead on the porch, walk or platform and draw the continuous line along on these pulleys as she works, rather than wade about in the yard. Of course the length of the long armed pulley must be sufficient to allow the clothes to pass around it, and it must be point to prevent trouble from rust. This apparatus requires simply the usual clothesline, with three pul- leys—two common cines costing prob- 'ably 10 cents each, and a patent long armed pulley costing probably 25 cents. Another drying device, well adapted for winter use in rural districts, is the clothes reel. This is in the form of a huge extended umbrella without cover, the ropes extending from rib to rib at regular distances from the circumference to the center of the. reel, like the concentric strands of a gigantic spider's web. The apparatus has an iron socket in which the cen- ter pole (corresponding to the handle of the umbrella) rests, and from which the entire reel can be lifted when , necessary. The reel turns On a pivot at the top, thus enabling the worker to hang clothes on its con- centric lines or to remove them with- out undue exposure of body, skirt bot- toms or feet. •T \ he entire apparatus can be moved readily to a sheltered side of the house for winter use by resetting the iron socket in - the ground at the desired place. In case the line is to be taken to shelter be. tween times of use the skeleton frame with all its lines can be folded and moved and the socket can be cov- ered for protection. SEED BED FOR ALFALFA. How to Prepare the Soil to Insure Good Yield. When alfalfa is grown on corn or potato ground the preparation of the seed bed is a comparatively simple affair. The land should be disked in the spring and worked with a peg - tooth harrow. After the disking and harrowing the ground should be worked occasionally during the spring with disk and harrow in order to con- serve moisture and to kill the young germinating weeds. Growing the al4alfa after a corn or potato crop is of added advantage in that the seed bed is firm below the top two or three inches. The small seed of the alfalfa and the delicate nature of the young plant demand a compact seed bed, in comparison to what is allowable for corn or even for wheat. In an open, porous seed- bed the soil is apt to d'ry out in the upper few inches, and if this oceurs shortly after the iiernilliation of ilic alfalfa the young seedlings are quite liable to die through lack of moisture. GOOD VENTILATION Tuberculosis May Develop Where Airs Is Foul, SOME INTERESTINGSTATIST ICS Ventilation consists in providing an Inlet for plenty of fresh air without the creation of drafts, and an outlet for impure air. There are a Few tun- daniental principles which must be kept in mind in regulating ventila- tion. The fresh air must be brought Into the building without creating a direct draft on the occupants. In stables the fresh air should get to the animals as pure as possible. For ex- ample, it is better to have - the air supply come facing the animals, than to have it come from behind them, where it will have to pass over their manure before it gets to their . nos- trils. To illustrate the value of pure air note the effect of poor ventilation on tuberculous cows. It has been ob- served that an animal affected with tuberculosis kept in the open for a while will not decline very rapidly, but place the same animal in a close; unventilated stable, and invariably a rapid development of the disease will be noticed. Some interesting statistics are available showing that more than twice as many cattle were found to be affected with tuberculosis in sta- PAIR 3 P•OR ss % EFFECTS OF SANITATION ON BERCULOSIS. There are less than half as many reactions to tuberculin in \fair\ sta- bles as in \poor\ stables. hies where the sanitary conditions were poor than in those stables where the conditions were fair. The comparison is strikingly shown in the accompanying diagram. The same is true of glandered horses. Before the passage of our present laws for the control of such diseases it was the custom to send giandered horses out on the ranges. The disease would almost always be arrested if it had not Rrogressed too far. But if these horses were brought back to the cities, put at hard work, and kept in poorly ventilated stables, the disease would again make its ap• pearance, generally in a form much worse than before, and soon prove fatal. GRAIN FOR POULTRY. Corn is more commonly fed to poul- try In the United States than any other grain; and, when properly bal- anced with other feeds, is one of the most valuable grains we have. Re- cent experiments 'Indicate that corn is more easily and thoroughly digested than other grains. For growing stock or laying hens from 30 to 35 per cent of the ration should consist of corn., Wheat is probably the best grain to feed singly. In Europe and Canada it is•more largely fed than any other grain. Wheat screenings, when one can get them clean, are -superior to plump wheat for laying hens, as they contain more protein, and are there- fore not so fattening. . Oats, being nearest to a balanced ration, should be an excellent poultry feed, but, owing to their thick hulls, they are not much relished by the fowls. By soaking in water, or sprout• big, oats may be made very much more palatable. Barley is an excellent poultry feed; and some poultrymen feed it ,when they cannot get corn. We find it a splendid grain for fattening purposes. and when cracked it is splendid for little chicks. Buckwheat and millet make valua- ble additions to any whole grain mix- ture, when fed in moderate proportions • Montana is now Leading all the States in Settlement and Development The report of the Commissioner of the General Land Office, shows beyond qu,stion, that Mont- ana is now leading all the states in settlement and development.. The report Is replete with Interest- irfir figures, showing the rapid growth of this state and its future. MOORE IS THE SECOND TOWN OF IMPORTANCE IN FERGUS COUNTY.

It was one of those summer days in the middle west when. the heat be- coming unbearable. the farmer was compelled to retreat filen his fields and take refuge from the w•orehing sun. He had been resting for some little time when he beeaute conscious of a persistent twittering about his eat* Looking up, he saw a litt1.2! sparrow, which had evidently come ill through the open window. The farmer tried to drive the bird away, but each time it returned, im- mediately darting off again and con- stantly chirping as though in'an effett to attract his attention. At last, his curiosity aroused, he followed the little bird to the doorway. When he looked out he saw, to his as- tonishment, that a tierce storm was rapidly approaching. • Immediately the farmer drove the cattle under cover. As is their wont, they were apparently enjoying the in- tense heat that precedes such a storm and Were grazing far from shelter. In the violent storm that followed hail of immense size descended with such great 'velocity that all the cattle would undoubtedly have perished had they not been sheltered. You can imagine how thankful the farmer was to the little sparrow for his timely warning. Riddles. What is that which is full of holes and yet holds water? A sponge.

Generally speaking, the word mag- net is thought to be derived from the wbrd Magnesia, a city of Lydia, in Asia Minor. where the peculiar mag- netic properties of the ore of iron known as lodestone wore first discov- ered. Another authority. however, declares, that the word can be traced back to Magnum. the name of H shepherd who was detained on Mount Ma by the Iron in his shoes and found himself unable to move.
