Bullet Hits tnnocsnt Party
Durant, Okla.—Dr. J. B. Smith wad
accidentally shot In the leg in a drug
store here and painfully wounded by
Chas. Lester, a painter, who Is said to
have been under the influence of
whisky and engaged in a quarrel with
O. C. Allen, who lives at Allison, and
who says he did not know Allen and
knows of no reason why the fellow
should have desired to kill him. When
Lester shot, the ball hit the concrete
floor, glanced and part of it struck
Dr. Smith's leg just above the ankle
and plowed its way up to the knee.
Dr. Smith was taken to Sherman to
undergo a surgical operation.
Introduced into the grounds of Mr.
James Lick of San Jose. Cal., in the
early seventies. It soon spread to ad-
joining orchards where it was found
and first described by Prof. J. H. Corn-
stock in 1880, who quickly recognized
its Capabilities as an orchard pest,
for he named it the pernicious scale.
By ’8S-«nd '87 it bad been Imported
on fruit trees into eastern nurseries,
and from this began to spread over
the east and south.

companied by a certificate of inspec-
tion from a competent entomologist
to the effect that they are free from
scale, and he should also demand a
sworn statement that hts trees have
been fumigated with hydrocyanic acid
gas. The buyer should also examine
the trees' himself very carefully for
the scale and destroy infested ones.
If, after these precautions, the Insect
becomes present in the orchard, spray
with the lime-salt-snlphur mixture.
In making the wash, the formula
for which is 20 pounds quick lime.
Killed While Boarding Train
Shawnee, Okla.—Harry Johnson of
VIrdin, III,, died late Saturday night
from Injuries received earlier In the
evening when he was run over by a
Rock Island faat freight train at the
Broadway crossing In Shawnee. John-
son waa trying to board the freight
when he was thrown beneath the

15 pounds sulphur, 10 pounds salt, 45
gallons of water, only the very best
quality of quick lime should be used.
Two Iron kettles should be procured,
each one holding at least 20 gallons,
but the more they hold the better.
The to pounds of lime should be
slacked in three or four gallons of hot
water in one of the kettles. When
the lime is nearly slacked, but before
It quits boiling, add the 15 pounds of
sulphur and enough of hot water to
make a thin paste of the lime and
sulphur. Stir the whole vigorously
until they are thoroughly mixed, then
boll vigorously for 45 minutes.
After the lime and sulphur have
actually boiled 45 minutes, add the
ten pounds of salt, and boll vigorous-
ly 15 minutes more. It will become
necessary during the boiling to add a
little hot water now and then to keep
the mixture thin. When through boil-
ing add enough hot water to make 46
gallons, strain through a gunny sack,
and apply hot.
There are two seasons of the year
during which the Ban Jose scale may
be fought, namely, winter and sum-
mer. The more effectual treatment
may be given during the winter, but
much good may be done by summer
treatment, at which time the insect
can certainly be greatly checked.

There la a general unanimity of
opinion among experienced poultry
men ttoat poultry do best upon some
form of green or succulent food dur-
ing the winter months. The function
of such succulent food is probably
largely in the nature of a digestive
stimulant, rather than as an addition
to the actual food constituents of the
A green winter feed that is greatly
relished by fowls Is sprouted oats.
Experience has shown that In order
to mako a satisfactory green food,
however, the oats must be grown
very quickly. In order to get quick
growth It Is necessary to have three
things: First, warmth; second, plenty
of moisture; and, third, sunlight.
By sowing oats in shallow, flat
boxes about two Inches doep, and by
sprinkling and keeping the box iu a
worm, sunny place, the oats will
sprout very rapidly, making a growth
of from 4 to 6 Inches In a week or
The flats In which the oats are
sprouted must be thoroughly scrub-
bed with half water and half for-
malyn every time before they are
used, or the oats will mold In the
The best way to sprout oats la to
build a small closet Into which the
flats can be slipped on cleats and sup-
ply the closet either with a steam-
pipe or If that Is not feasible, a small
stove, either for wood or kerosene, or
sometimes a large kerosene lamp may
be used to maintain heat
Soak clean and sound oats over
night in a pail of water. Next morn-
ing All the flats about two incbei
deep and put In the sprouting closet
Place the freshly filled flats near tha
top of the closets, so as to get the
maximum amount of beat and in that
way start the sprouts quickly.
Rake the sprouts thoroughly two or
three times a day until they have be
come half to three-quarters of an inoh
long, then do not disturb them In any
way. The oats should be kept quit*
wet. They must be sprinkled at least
three times a day.
As the oats grow, the flats are'
moved to different positions in the
closets. The taller the material gets,
the nearer the flats are moved to the
floor, as they then need less heat.
Feed when the sprouts are from 4
to 6 Inches In height, at the rate of a
piece of the matted oats about 8 or
6 Inches square for each 100 birds per
day. Break up so that every bird In
the pen may have some.
It should be clearly understood
that the purpose for which green
sprouted oats are fed Is their tonic
and stimulative Influence on the di-
gestive organs. They are not fed for
the food value of the oats themselves.
If one wishes merely to feed oats
they can be moat economically fed
not sprouted. The point of sprouting
Is to furnish fresh, succulent, green
food during the winter months.
