From warm, balmy, 6unny
weather to about as neir as we
ever came to a blizzard in this
country was the change wrought in
the course of twenty-four hours last
Friday and Saturday. We have
no recollection of so severe a cold
snap in Benton county in the mid
dle of March during any of the six
teen years we have called this city
our home. Yesterday morning the
thermometer was down to 24
degrees. A number of water pipes
about town were frozen up and
there was something doing in the
plumbing line. The general
opinion among fruit men is that
a little early fruit may be lost, but
that on the whole, if conditions
later are favorable, the recent cold
wave will have been more of a ben
efit than otherwise as it will assist
in keeping fruit from coming omU

My old way was to first feel the
calfs head (for some calves' horns
come sooner than others) and as
soon as you can feel the nub take
your knife and make the slightest
cut one drop of blood is enough
then take a piecejot concentrat
ed lye the size of a pea, place jit
in the little cut and the work is
done But that does not al ter
the disposition. .
The new way is: " Get a Red
Prlld sire and breed the horns
off then you have the quiet, kinr",
good natured disposition. I have,
never ' had ?a halfbreed heifer
with horns of any kind. I find

House. Themeetingin the church
was for women and aftpr a briff ad
dress by Rev.' Miller was left, in the

The meetings in the Oper. House
was for men. Riv Miller'n address
was a call to halt in the onrush

bers. Rev. Miller sang, "I Sat
Alone With Life's Memories," in
an effective manner. The sub
ject of his Bermon was, "The Judg
ment Day," and in a clear, logical
argument he snowed tne reasons
for the necessity of such a reckon
ing time for all men. At the close
of the service several expressed
their desire to be' christians. An
after meeting to which a goodly
number remained proyed very nelp
ful. Services are to continue every
day at 3:30 in the Congregational
