Quito a number of local citizens
remained alert last evening to wit
ness the predicted moon eclipse. The
expected occurred shortl after I
o'clock, the moon remaining in total
darkness from L :: until H -Ifi this
morning. In all the eclipse lasted
nearly four hours, from l:l'll o'clock
until 1:15 o'clock. The eclipie of the
moon was waiteil by ast roluini' rs
with less eagerness than an eclipse
of 'be sun. Inasmuch as few secrets
are unlocked by an eclipse of the
former. Telescopically the latt'
eclipse is less specular. Nevertheless
II was a wlerd sight, the more Im-
prcssive wh.'ii Ihe fact is recalled that
ilhe tl rst Intimation ot Ihe rotundity

THE XKWCO.MKRS IDEA
Every farmer realizes the enor
mous lotses resulting from the use
of farm seeds infested with the seeds
of weeds. There Is not only the Im

permanent infestation of the neigh
borhood. So far as we know, the
Ktiifo nf WisrniiKin in tho Rrnt to nn-
,(ly the principles f,f the pure food
law to the seed trade. During the
present year the slate enncted a law
forbidding the sale of seeds In lots
or packages of more than one pound
weight i;nless accompanied by a la
bel stating among other things the
percentage of purity and germlnatlnp:
power, and also the names of the
weads. If any, with whose seeds the
seed is infested. If the infestation
Is greater than one In one thousand
the seed must not he sold at all exfc
cept for grinding. The law is a rather
long one and contains many details
which we have not space to men
tion, but the essence of It all is that
It proposes that all persons buying
seed shall know precisely what they
nre getting. The enforcement of the
law Is placed with the State Univers
ity, which is bad in principle. Con
