F i COLUMBIAW 1 I ir- ti AN OLQ TRAGEDY IN RESTRAIT OF TRUSTS It is highly interesting Wr s infor- ¬ mation that the President is paring a special message recDir mending legislation in restraint of trusts Not because this C n gress is likly to enact any meas Ure that will have the desired effect The trusts are too firmly intrenched in Congress to justify the belief that any legislation t that will be adequate will be ableto run thefgauntletrBut1he prE- ¬ < m w SELECT YOUR SEED CORN NOW The following from the Hus tonville correspondent to the Danville Advocate will interest many of our readers over in Ca¬ sey and along the boundary line There died a few days ago on the Rolling Fork in Casey an aged man lThos3 Evans 94 whose deathrecalls one of the fiercest and bloodiest tragedies ever wit nessed on the streets of Liberty On that day Bell and Magoffin candidates for Governor had an mere recommendation will apparently be a confession that the appointment to speak in the campaign against the trusts of town This was in the Spring or early Summer of 1860 The voting population of the county as ¬ sembled as well as great numbers from this county among them Bill Owsley who hadlmoved to a fine farm near here aSfew years previous from Lancaster Ows ¬ ley was a bad man in liquor and would fighthis weight in wild cats when insulted On this day red liquor was much in evidence in Caseys Capital A difficulty sprang up between Owsley and might be made Granville Johnson which ended doubtless a law to enable the Supreme Court to by Owsley drawing his trusty paSs on the law without sub- ¬ Colts and killing him in his which we have heard so much has proved a failure The decis- ¬ ion of Judge Humphrey is cited as a reason for more legislation But the decision of Judge Hum ¬ phrey was based on a clause of the Constitution and no legisla- ¬ tion can repeal that Another clause in the Constitution pre ¬ vents so it is said an appeal from the Chicago decision If this is true no sort of law can thoughed jecting parties to a new trial tracks Evans the subject of But is it really necessary that this sketch and a brotherinlaw of Johnson sprang at Owsley this be done I

spring work be ¬ gins Numerous investigations he says have shown that in the average year a Missouri corn field has seventyfive per cent of a stand That is to say the Missouri farmer will plant and cultivate 100 acres of corn and harvest 75 The cause of this is poor seed He offers this simple methodjof testing seed corn Put several old newspapers in the bottom of a box and wet them Then spread a white cloth with checkerboard squares on top of the paper each square being numbered Now number the ears to correspond with the squares Take three grains from each ear and place them on the cloth in the square bearing the same number as the ear Put another clothon top of the grains and place the box in a warm place In four or five days they will have sprouted Now start with If all three of the earfrom that ear have sprout ¬ ed vigorously it will do for seed but if the grains fail to germinate or show weak and spindling sprouts throw the ear aside and so on for every ear In this way almost a perfect stand can be secured which means a much larger yield per acre the market those contemplating a corner with high prices be ¬ ing compelled to sell at a sacri ¬ fice the hens breaking the cor ¬ ner unexpectedly Those who were fortunate in having good wellcaredfor stock have not been disappointed in their ex- ¬ pectations The winter had its influence on poultry as well as on everything else but the poul trymen no doubt have come out successfully Prices will con ¬ tinue up to the average for those who wish to have that which they desire in the poultry line will buy it at all times and while the chickens and eggs are as good as cash money the farmers who keep thier hens in laying condition will fully realize all their expectations Purebred fowls will pay at all seasons of the year and there is no reason why farmers should continue to breed only the common kinds Great ActivityIs shown without any disagreeable af¬ ter effects by Dr Caldwells laxative Syrup Pepsin in going to the
