Seven Great Patriots
Tho historian of recent years
seems to take especial delight in
dethroning the heroes of the past
who have been worshiped for gen-
erations as such, and not infre-
quently they are able to produce
facts and substantiate their state-
ments* to such an extent that it is
hard to question their finding*.
These heroes have grown out, of a
romantic age, when printing had
not been established, an J publicity
was only disseminated through ; with having been an intense patriot

Of the six varieties of turkeys recog-
nized by the standard of perfection,
the bronze are considerably the largest.

The Narragansetts are next in size,

side of Switzerland, but even the
Swiss antiquarians themselves, pro-
pounce it a fabrication.
In spite oft all these dissenters
to the story, the fact remajfis undis-
puted that there existed a William
Tell and that he was a Swiss patriot
end that the folk of his country still
delight to do him honor. TI $ people
of Switzerland were not always an
free and happy as they are today.
During the reign of Dossier their
•lot was especially unhappy. But
the tyrannical hand " of the despot
was not destined to hold his clutch-
es upon them without an attempt
to assert their rights. In 1S03
they revolted and a number of pa-
triots arose against Gessler's gov-
ernment. leading among whom wero
William Tell. They conspired to
free the land, and the imperial
minion was slave by the brave Tell.
His assistants in the revolution were

The monarch wad naturally veryj
angry, and fearing that the effect
of Tell's disobedience would cause
others to rebel against him, TiCj
made up his mind to punish the
bold man. Tell's home was among
the mountains, and he waj a fa-
mous hunter. No one in all the
land could shoot with how and ar-
row as true as he. (Jessler knew
this, and consequently thought on1
a plan whereby the hunters own
skill would bring him to grief. He
ordered Tell to shoot an arrow at
en apple placed upon the hpad of
his own son. Tell cleft the apple
without hurting the child, after
which he declared that if he had
missed his aim it was his intention
to have directed another arrow
through the heart of« the tyrant.
Clessler then caused Tell to be
taken into a boat, for the purpose
of conveying him out. of the pro-
vince; but in crossing the lake a
storm arose, and as tho prisoner
was an experienced steersman he
was intrusted with the helm, of
which he was no sooner possessed
than he steered close to a rock,
leaped on shore, and soon afterward
shot Gessler near Kuznaelit. Tne

trian government was overthrown

difference is In the color.
In richness of color and luster of

Scales are a good thing for a man
to have. They enable him to know

Ewes that go into their winter quar

There is often a tendency on the
part of beginners to increase their
herds too rapidly. Better go slowly

A variety of crops certainly adds to

Go carefully over your farming

The matter of keeping records is im-

any merchant does.
If we neglect the hen houses this

It will take but a few minutes to clean

whitewash can be put on almost as

shoveled in when the filthy floor has
been cleaned out. Follow this kero-

so for a time and it will be a pretty
tough louse or mite that stays around
