The tract comprises tlve acres and

In censuring the attorney general.
They declare that he proceeded to
try the case without notifying them
or any other heads of department!
so they could testify on behalf of
the state, that he called as witnesses
for the state only two real estate
men and that a majority of 'ho men
on the jury wore local real estate
mon. Because of Crawford's failure
to give an opportunity to the state
to bring in testimony as to the value
of the land and also his alleged fail
ure to guard Its rights In selecting a
jury, they now declare the atutd must
either do without the land or pay an
exorbitant price for It. They declare
that the land Is not worth over $50
an acre, but to avoid litigation they
offered $ 1 GO for ft.

Identified, finally confessed. He do-j
cinred that persons outride the pris

the cutting had gone down the road
to finish some work that he had
been engngod to do. Sheriff Qnlne
ascertained that Bun ham, who was
reported killed, hnd left the commu
nity and gone up into the woods. The
sheriff located Boren, who stated
that he was ready to come to town
any time they wanted to place a
charge against him. Quine learned
that Boren was not the aggressor in
the fight and that he acted solely In
self defense and therefore left him
at his work. The only person who
seemed put out by the tragedy was
Sheriff Quine, who lost a night's
sleep, which be Is making up today.

Fifteen Great Departments
The Book of Knowledge
The Children's Encyclopaedia
Superbly Illustrated with 9,000 Pictures 350 Magnificent Colored Plates
The Fifteen Great Departments supply the needs and exercise all the faculties of the growing mind.
Natural Science, which lights up nature; delightful history, mechanics and arts; beautiful places to be
seen or dreamed about, adventure, which arrives and brings back a treasure; real people more interesting
than giants and cleverer than faries; things to make and do which delightfully occupy busy hands all
satisfy and stimulate eager young minds. The reason for including every department will be easily
apparent after examining the work.
President John H. Finley, of the College of the City of New York, introduction says:
"Suppose a hoy of ten were to spend fifteen minutes a day reading these pages, ... he would at 13
know more about the earth and the life on it then the wisest men knew a few generations ago."
A well-rounded education cannot be obtained In
the school room alone. The boy or girl whose prog
ress Is the most rapid will almost always be the one
whose reading has been carefully selected at home.
The editors of the BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE have
rendered this great service to childhood. No wise
parent will neglect the opportunity offered by this
work to study the disposition and capabilities of his
child. In many onsen a chilli's life work may be
determined by tho possession of these books.
The Important facts in all the leading articles are
Indelibly impressed upon the mind In three differ
ent ways. First the summary at the head of each
nrllcle, then the wonderfully Interesting article It
self, then the picture Illustrating It, with the seev
eral lines of terse and vivid description.
"It is an exhaustive work and a notable example
of editorial skill In the choice of topics and their
treatment. Adults as well as children will be fasci
nated alike by the luminous text and the Illustra
tions. As has already been pointed out in these
columns, one of the uses of such a work would be
to assist parents, their sons and daughters In find
ing out whether a child's natural bent be toward
science, mechanics, trade or literature."
They will be delighted wlrh the beautiful lllus
tiated booklet mailed tree giving the contents of
each of the Departments of Knowledge. The valua
ble pamphlet, "The Mind of a Crlld," also presented.
The lost art of simplicity the art of presenting
profouud truths In the simple language which a
child tan understand has been discovered by the
editors of the BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE. The simple
ciear and convincing style which appeals esually to
the adult mind is the secret of the great drawing
j,ower of this remarkable work. It quickens and
stimulates thought and In a marked degree wakens
interest In the world of Ideas. Not only facts but
ideals are absorbed, and learning male a real delight
