A Dastardly Trick.
Someone, whose identity will more
than likely be obtained soon, attempted
to per pet sue a most cowardly and wan-
ton injury upon Frank Prybl, north of
town, the first of the week. Mr. Prybl
has been tnreshing his wheat, and on
Monday while the machine was running
it was discoyered that someone had
placed different pieces of iron in the
wheat bundles for the purpose of wreck-
ing the machine. Six horseshoes and
an iron guard went through the ma-
chine before it could be stopped. The
machine was not badly damaged. In-
vestigating other bundles, a number of
pounds of other pieces of iron, which
had they no! been found, would have
put the machine out of business, had
they gone through it, were discovered.
Deputy Sherilt Mont Tate was called
to the Prybl place, and discovered clues
which will probably result in the guilty
parties being apprehended. A reward
of $100 has been offered for the arrest
of the culprit. It is hoped that the'
perpetrator of this most cowardly trick
will be caught, and an example made of
him, so that in the future he may re-
frain from such acts.
"Ted" Btrnum Injured.
"Ted Barnum, the young son of E. M.
liarnum, the toe man, had a narrow es-
cape from death last Friday night.
Ted had been driving the ice wagon for
his father, and on the night in question
w&s putting up his team, when one of
the horses gave him a vicious kiok in
the mouth. Six of the boy's teeth wore
knocked out, and two bad gashes were
cut in his jaw and chin. It was neces-
sary to give the lad anaesthetics in or-
der to dress his wounds, and nine
stitches were taken to sew up his chin,
led is getting along nicely however,
and will soon be out again.
Train Load of Beer.
A train, consisting of twenty-five cars,
loaded with Milwaukee beer from the
Pabst brewery, passed through Hennet
sey Sunday, The cars were profusely
decorated. The train went as far as
El Ileno as a special, from which point
the beer will be distributed.

COMPLAINT of WEB W0R.M.
Put Torches in the Field, Says the Oil
Guthrie, O'. T., June 26.—Complaints
of a plague of web worms are general m
many parts of the territory. This pest
is working on eotton, alfalfa and other
crops and is rery destructive. Alfalfa
may be cut and cored and the depreda-
tion of the web worm stopped for the
time being, but with cotton it is differ-
ent. Territorial Oil Inspector Ashton,
who has had long experience as a farm
er, is authority for the statement that
the destruct-iveness of these insects may
be minimized if not prevented altogether
by the nse of lighted torches placed in
the fields at night. Discussing this sub-
ject, Mr. Ashton said:
"The web worms attacked my alfalfa
field several years ago and I resorted to
the use of torches in the field. The
adult insect is a moth which Hies by
night. A lighted torch or lamp placed
in the field naturally attracts these
moths. I used what is known as the
wide awake torch—similar to those in
general use by tlambeau clubs, only it
does not need to swing. The torch
should have a socket so that it can be
fitted on a stock or staff and set upright
in the lie id, a little above the level of
the growing crop. Enough oil should
be put in to burn until 2 or o'clock in
the morning, and it should be lighted
as soon as night begins to fall. The
moths are attraoled by the light so that
they fly directly to and into it with the
result that they fall singed and perish-
ing to the ground. Three or four such
torches should be sufficient to destroy
all the moths on a fifty aero field. I
have successfully followed the same
practice in preventing the depredations
of worms on the growing ears of corn.
In that case, however, the torches
should be placed higher above the tops
ol th oom stalks, so that they may at-
tract ttie moths from all parts of the
When ashed about this matter, Secre-
tary TJioborn, of the board of agricul-
ture expressed great interest, though he
had nevter had any personal experience
or observation along this line. In speak-
ing of it h said:
"Several years ago there was con-
siderable discussion in regard to trap-
ping and testroying the codling moth
in apple orchards by somewhat similar
means, .-"•veral of the experiment sta-
tions investigated the subject and re-
ported that the codling moth was not

that beneficial insects—that is, those
that prey upon injurious insects—were
destroyed than any others. The season
being so much later, however, and the
character and habits of the insects
in question being so different, such a
practice may prove very beneficial. It
is certainly worthy of trial at any rate.
The cost is so insignificant that Mr.
Ashton's suggestion should be acted up-
on in an experimental way at least."
Good Fishing Near Si. Louis on Rock
Island Line To Kansas City.
St. Louis— An enthusiastic disciple
of Ike Walton thus writes to the St.
"After reading in last Sunday's issue
the report of the catch made by tne St.
Louis boys at Indian ford eddy, and on
the Little Maries, wo made ready for a
week's outinu at Ereeburg, near the
crossing of the Rock Island and Gascon
ade, and Saturday night left this city to
go to Ereeburg, a few miles west of Gas-
condy, arriving there 1:15 Sunday. We
organized for the week and Monday
morning headed for the Marie, about
two and a half miles from Ereeburg.
Here we found a beautiful stream in the
pink of condition for fishing, and pitch-
ed our camp, catching the first day
seventy-two fish in all; among them
were nine jacks, fourteen bass and the
balance channel cats and largo perch.
Monday night we had a cloudburst,
which raised the river so we had no fish-
ing Tuesday, but put in the day killing
young squirrels, at which we had very
good sport, and supplied our camp with
meat for several days. On Wednesday
we started fishing again, though the
creek did not get in good condition be-
"We remained in camp until Satur-
day noon, and I can assure any roaders
of the Globe Democrat we made the
largest catch ever made by lour men in
that length of time, taking in all :i8tl
fish; all ol which where of very nice
•Otturna: ia tw habits, and, moreover, size, The largest bass weighed 3t pounds
largest jack weighed 4J pounds, and tho
largest cat 2) pounds. We caught in all
120 bass and 84 jacks, the balance cat
and perch. The accommodating hotel
■sail at Ereeburg packed our catch and
we landed in Marshall this morning
with more fish than were ever brought
here by one party of fishermen."
There was another horse stealing
scare here Monday morning. When
John Overfelt went to feed his horses
Monday morning, a young filly was mis-
sing. He saw where a buggy had beer,
driven up to his barnyard fence, and
naturally supposed that horselhieves
had taken his mare. Deputy Sheriff
Moil Tate was notified, and wort to the
Overfelt plaoe. The mare was found a
short while afterward. It developed
that the animal had been let out of tho
barn lot accidentally.
