ALFALFA LOST TEMPER WAS COSTLY. Poet Banker Threw and Bou'"' Back Hit Own Property. Edmund Clarence Stedman, the poet banker, had a high temper and was wxceedingly sensitive One day, exasperated by the crass stupidity of a servant, he threw a book at his head The boy ducked and the book sailed out of the window. After it hurried the menial, but he was too late; a passerby had picked It up and walked off with it. Stedman began to wondr what book he had thrown away, and to his horror discovered that it was a quaint and rare little volume for which he had paid $50. His chagrin was Intense, as the work was almost unique and the prospects of replacing it were remote. Some time afterward, when browsing in a second hand book shop, our splenetic jKet banker perceived to hlg great delight a copy of the very book he had lost. He asked the price. 'It's very i re," replied the dealer, "but as you ai an old customer I'll let you have it 'or $40; nobody else could have it or less than $60." Stedman gladly pa (1 the $40, got home with his treasure is soon as possible, and sat down to gloat over it. A card dropped out of the leaves. It was his own. Further examination showed that he had bought back his property. It cured him of casting books at servants' heads. New York Press. 1 Application Put on File.

Resuit of Controversy Will Now Be Brought to the Ajt'ention of the Senate, Which Haa Asked for Information. Venezuela bai again Washington declined to arbitrate the question of controversy which have been pei ding for some time between the Castro administration and the American government. This time the refusal Is made specific with respect to each ct the questions separately, and differs from the last refusal to arbitrate in that the refusal was made as to all questions en bloc. It was explained at the state department that the presentation by Minister Russell of each of the five points in dispute with a request for arbitration leaves no foundation for a future representation by Venezuela to the effect that she was not asked to arbitrate any of the questions sepThis would seem to clear arately. up the situation by making it plain fiat diplomacy can accomplish nothing further toward settling those controversies. That this deadlock will be made to appear to the United States senate when it receives the contents of tho dies of the state department respecting Venezuela information for which it asked last week there can be no doubt. in asking arbitration of the differences, the American government has left open the question of machinery pi the arbitration to be employed. This government would have been glad to have hrd the controversy go tc The Hague. Failing in this, it is believed any other duly appointed tribunal would have been acceptable. OF MILLIONS. Grave Charges Made by Missouri Congressman. Washington. The startling charge g that the railroads of the country mails had robbed the people out of $70, 000,01)0, was made in the house on Tuesday by Mr. Lloyd of Missouri. He declared that the new system of weighing mails was an admission of the postmaster that the general weighing in the past twenty-seveyears had been fraudulent. He called for an investigation of the postofflca department, and Mr. Wanger of Pennsylvania, chairman of the committee to control the expense's of that department, promised that an inquiry would be instituted. car-tyin- BaA aL BaB jffW &SJv- BSj :.'4SacV n After suffering for seven years, this woman was restored to health by Lydia E.

A. Moore of the I'niversity of Wisconsin before the 1908 meeting of the eheesemaker' Prof. Moore believes association. that alfalfa, while yet in its experimental stage in Wisconsin, has come to stay. A thing most Important in the production of alfalfa is testing the seed In recent years alfor germination. falfa seed has tested as low as ten ppr cent, germinating quality. Much of the germination power is ruined in the way alfalfa seed is occasionally handled through heating before being separated, etc. The remedy for farmers is, of course, to put the seed through a germinating test before seeding. The usual process may be followed, taking for example 100 seeds and placing these on a moistened pad of cotton cloth, a similar pad placed on the top of these between two plates, where they may be left at the proper temperature for a few days to Then remove the top germinate. plate and pad and count results. If the seed tests below 80 per cent, you may begin to feel suspicious of It. In securing this crop in these north era latitudes the farmer should first learn how, experimenting in a small, though practical way. Put in an acre, or a half acre, to begin with, and then start in to get conditions right. Do not seed on low, level valley Select a gentle slope. An ideal soil for alfalfa is a clay loam on top of gravel. This plant wants a soil it can penetrate. You, who are at all familiar with alfalfa, will remember that it sends down a taproot occasion-oil10 to 15 feet and more. Where alfalfa will be grown to advantage in the near future in Wisconsin is in the older, subdued soils of the south central counties. Further north in the state its development must necessarily be slower. Alfalfa is easy on a soil. It is a legume and has the power of taking nitrogen from the air, a most wonderIn ful and valuable consideration. preparation of the soil we like to sow alfalfa in rotation with other crops. We like to use a thin nurse crop of either oats or barley, preferring barley, if this does well on the land. Make a fine seedbed in the spring and sow one bushel of oats or barley to the acre and 20 pounds of good alfalfa seed. Put in only one or two acres at most at the beginning, and not 40 acres. We must largely learn by doing, even though we understand the principles of alfalfa growing. It is often found best to cut this crop the first year, in order to prevent the nurse crop from smothering the young alfalfa plants. Cut the oats the first year for hay and you may possibly cut a second crop of alfalfa the same seaAlfalfa son. In harvesting, cut in the morning after the dew is off the ground and on a fair day. In the afternoon rake into windrows and cock it up, even if it appears quite green to the eye. You will thus save the leaves through excessive drying off.

The treasury department last week purchased 113,300 ounces of silver for delivery at Denver and San Francisco r.t 55.6GG cents per tine ounce. There are persistent rumors of a possible resumption of mining operations at the Anaconda mine, and probably at the North Butte and Butte Coalition mines at Butte. Perhaps no district has been born resurrection in Nevada during the period of mining that has had such a hard fight to fame as Rawhide. The camp is over a year old, and the boom has just started. transmission line The that is to carry electric power from the Beaver County Power company's plant to the Cactus mines and mills of the Newhouse company, is now nearing completion. The mines of the Boundary district of British Columbia during the year pounds of 1P07 produced 35,500,900 10 from cost a at ranging copper cents at the Granby to 14 cents at the Dominion mines. About the only argument one hears against the use of silver now adays, says Mining Science, is that it is too heavy and clumsy for common use; that a pocketfull of silver pulls the clothes out of place. 13 Today silver is selling at about cents per ounce less than it did a year ago, when trade expansion required a larger supply of small coin and when the more important buyers who ship to the far east were in need of tho metal. Advices from Iron county are to the effect that a remarkably heavy fall of snow has occurred there and the result will be that freighting from Lund into the Virgin River oil country will be retarded for perhaps twenty days. The Graehl Mining and Milling company of Brigham City has filed a certified copy of its articles of incorporation in the office of the secretary of state. The company is capitalized for fl00,000, and owns nine claims near Brigham City. On account of the labor troubles at Goldfield, the production of its mines continues to be nominal. The Combination mill reduced during the last week in February 600 tons and the Kinkead mill 175 tons of an aggregate value of about ?31,000. At the Yampa smelter, Bingham, an average of about 600 tons of ore a day is now being reduced to base bullion, and this is being shipped to the refineries at Crome, N. J., for refining. Gradually the smelting works are being brought up to their highest point of efficiency. New rollers and screens are being installed in the Shoshone mill, says-.hBeatty Miner. Work in the mine nas not abated. The fact that the ore chute has been entered on the level of the mine, and the ore found to be richer than in the levels above, places the Shoshone on a par with the best mines in the state. of Daniel Guggenheim, president the American Smelting & Refining company, says: "Copper, in my judgment, has taken the place formerLy held by steel and iron as the index of business conditions.

MacSherry, in the Tnird District court, to recover $2,000 and 1905, interest from January 23, amounting in all to $2,493.33, which she paid to the defendant for 4,000 shares of stock in the Sierra Nevada Exploration company. Ore buyers in the Salt Lake valley are now prepared to take all the ore they can get, it is said, but operators are apparently i,; no hurry to resume production so long as the metal market remains at its present stage. And yet metals are not so low as they were four years ago. A mining corporation capitalized at $13,000, with shares at one cent each, has been organized in Ogden, under the name of the Rare Metals Mining company. It Is the purpose of the company to develop its property in the Weber mining district in Weber county at an early date. The enormous sales of copper for to in February export, amounting considerably over 100,000,000 pounds, has called forth statements to the effect that the American consumer had much to learn from his foreign competitors in the matter of securing low cost copper supplies. Thus far in February the United States Metals Selling company has sold 89,000,000 pounds of copper, the bulk of It to England and Germany. These sales have cleaned up the surplus supplies of copper held by the concerns which sell through the Unit ed Metals Selling company. reliable mining A prominent and man, after a visit to Rawhide, Nevada "Never in my mining experisays: ence have I seen as much f:ee gold, and gold that Is gold, as the camp of Rawhide showed to me."

The greatest drawback to the hog Industry which breeders in this country have to contend with is what Is lenown as "hog cholera" and "swine plague." Hog cholera is a highly contagious disease and unless checked is liable to carry off a great number of hogs in a v.ery short time. Mr. A. P. Williams, of Burnetts Creek, Ind., tells of an experience which he had with some hogs that had the cholera. "Five years ago," says Mr. Williams, "I was in the employ of Mr. J. D. Richardson, Lafayette, Ind., as his barn foreman. Some fine hogs that I was feeding took the cholera. I gave them Sloan's Liniment and did not lose a hog.

They wore dark skirts trimmed with bands of lace, embroidery, or colored strips, and all wore aprons, some of black silk or cloth, but more of sheer white embroidered corners, and fringed shawls, were over their shoulders. It was not a uniform, but more in the nature of holiday attire such as one sees in Italy and France on carnival occasion or fete days. The men in the procession wore conventional dress, but their bearded faces were not American.
