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.

Mr. and Mrs. O. W. Anderson are visiting in Europe, and Mrs. Anderson ina letter to her sister, | Mrs. J. F. Robson, gives a de- lightful account of her visit in Sweeden. Mrs. Anderson is a graduate of the school. of Sug- gestive Therapeutics. She. says: We have been in Stockholm two weeks, and I feel as if I had been here forever. I think owe “hav been in every place in the city, but’ it seems so strange not to hear a word'of-English—I wish 1 could: give you an idea of how beantifnl the cit¥ is—built of solid white granite, streets and, all, and so clean, it makes one’s | eyes ache to look. It is called the Venice of the North. The streets are built on rivers or Ja-! goons, and ships come right to the , door. The parts that are not | water are given up to parks, where | there is music, dancing, eating, drinking and smoking every day and all day long. It scems like one continuous holiday. The pepole are so slow and good: We hada lovely visit at Mr. Ander- son’s old home, where he and all his ancestors. were born. It is quaint and old, but is still in use. I never saw such clean country homes. No matter how many children, the floors are as white and clean as soap and water can make thom. We found Dr. Wetterstrand liere, who is one of the founders of our method of practice. He is a lovely old man ~speaks English pretty well, and has a fine sanitarium.’ Ho invited us to spend all the time we could in- observing his work. He has spent many years of his life in the study of Suggestion. He is one of the examiners of the King’s college, the highest position any- one can hold in this country. Everyone bends the knoe to the doctor. There are no schools of Suggestion here, such as there are in America, and Dr. W. was proud to find us believing as he does. He has given us letters to prominent men in London, Paris and Berlin, and by the time we get around we shall have some idea of what the world 1s doing in in our line, Come Out of the Brush! At the next clection the electors Of Jefferson county-will be called upon to register their choice for the following officers: Representative to congress; Associate justice of the supreme court; State senator ; Three members of the house of representatives; Sheriff ; Treasurer; Llerk and recorder; Assessor; County attorney; Superintendent of schools; Coroner; Public administrator; County surveyor. ~The candidates for county offices have not yet showm up very nu- merously.

HINTS FOR FARMERS Insoluble isaniabas, The -use of fisoluble” phosphates, whether in the form of phosphatie rock or of the so called Thomas slag, hus long been a bone of contentlon or de batable matter not. only among the sclentifie men, but the practical farm ers. The former have questioned whether the insoluble phosphate could be of any value as plant food, and some of the farmers bave clalmed that thelr crops were vory much benefited by it. Although we have not tested tt, our opinion leads us to believe that the farmers are right, and those who rely guly on sclentific principles may. be wrong, Wealo not place sutticlent con- ddeticé th the power of the soll and the action of frosts, rain and summer heat upon what are sometimes: calcd iusol- uble fertilizers, We know little of ‘the power that these clements may exert, and when to the natural clements of the soll there may be added the effect of de- composing vegetable matter, elther as stable manure or as freen insnure, plowed under, we can only say that we | think they have mucb effect in making soluble not ouly phosphatic but other mineral elements in the soll, Thore Who have used the finely ground rock or Thome slag upon fields which had received a Uberal dressing of stable manure or had been treated with a green crop plowed under are so unani- tmously in its favor that we cannot doubt but that the co called tusoluble phosphates do become soluble ta the soll under certain conditions, depeuding upon the soll or the treatment it bas | received.—American Cultivator, Trickery Not Possible. Just after the oleo bill «vas passed there wus some fear. among butter makers that the oleo men would be able to “get sround the law by using butter containing artificial coloring matter. It will be remembered that J. W. Wadsworth, the New York econ grossnian, tried to anddle the bill with au amendment providing that “colored butter shal! not be construcd as color ation.” Had this become law the oleo people could bave taken red butter and used it. to color thelr mixture, thus evading the ten cent tax. ‘The treasury department has settled the matter dett- nitely in the following statemeut: “For example, if butter that bas been artificially colored is used aw a compo- nent part of the finished product oleo- margarine (and that finixbed product looks like of ally shade of yel- low), as the 6 argarine is net free from artiticin| coloration, the tax of 10 cents per pound will be asscased and collected.” That seems to settle it so far as col ored butter is concerned, and we think | honest people will agree that It is fair to all.—Rural New Yorker, Feeding Uran to Dairy Cows. While good pasturage is one of the beat, if not the best, foods that cau be supped to the dairy cows during the growing season, yet If the bext possible resuits-are secured in the pro: tion of milk it will in nearly all enxes be found advisable to feed the dairy cows sonie wheat bran daily. The quantity need not be large, but It should be supplied reguierty> tf a tittte cornmeat tx added, the results would be still better. But bran and good pasturage will enable a cow to maintain a full fow of milk throughout the summer, and the milk will be richer and better for making of geod butter than if pasturage alone is depended upon It is not necessary to put the cows In the stables to feed bran, Cotveulent boxes or troughs can be arranged in the lot or pasture where the cows are milked and the feeding be done with very little trouble,—st Louls Republic, To Nandle a Dalky lorne. A correspondent of the Prairie Farm er thus tells bow to manage a balks horse: As I was very much Interested in the way in which the driver brought his balky horse to a start, so pleasingly told in a recent issue of the I’rairie Farmer, 1 send the following, which | know to be very effective in bringing a balky horse to bis senses; Make a large loop in oie end of & rope, dnd into It. about luif way from foot to knee, put one of the horse's fore legs, then puss the other end of che rope to the driver, who will gently draw it till the borse raises bis foot from the ground and sbows an inclination to go. As soon as the horse starts loosen the rope around his leg and let him go at any pace he chooses.. This experiment 1 saw tried with great success on one of the balkiest horses I ever saw. They Do the Cause Harm, Every now and then we read of stu- dents at an agricultural college who want ‘the name of. the institution ebanged, says Rural New Yorker. That word “agricultural” burts their’ feel- ings. They would probably fee! insult- ed if one were to call them farmers, though probably the grenter tnsult would be given the profession of farm- ing. But what is the mutter with such young people anyway? Who is to blame for the fuct that they are ashamed of the noblest and oldest bust- ness on the face of the eurth? Can It be that those who teach them have lost the true spirit of agricultural edu: cation, or is it the fault of fond but. misguided parents? Whoever is at frult, the fact remains that such stu- dents do the cause of the Americun farmer more harm than good! The Supply of Hogs. Hog supplics at the warkets con- tinue ight.

They could see noth- ing to ring for, “What was it, Dick?” they inquired, “Oh, nothing but a sparrow. T Awas afraid 1 would run over it. The little thing stood so still right in front of the wheel!” “Ho, hol Rings his bell for a spar- row!\ sneered the other boys as Dick dismounted. “Mamina‘s itty, witty baby!” “I don't cure: how much you make fun of me,” he replied good naturedly, Fet not without a red flush on bis brow, “I guess I wouldn't run over a sparrow, even, when | could belp it by ringing or stopping,” “Come here, please, Dick!\ culled a volce from the dGornten of one of the handsomest houses on the avenue. “You are the very boy 1 want to drive & pony to the country and back. ft fe out the Darlington boulevard.
