Four years ago I purchased a piece

with noxious weeds of all kinds, the
turdock being very rank.
I turned in my sheep and In a few

However, I consider both Important

If you want to raise early lambs,
that is, winter lambs, you must be
thoroughly prepared and clearly tin-

J blankets. But lambs usually bring a
food price in the market, which I

It Is an excellent plan for every
farmer to put up every fall a quantity
of oats straw to help out In carrying
the sheep through the winter. Wheat
straw will answer the purpose but It
Is not as good as oats straw.

a longer investigation of the unusual
charges brought by the girl wife of
the widely known author and lawyer.
According to the papers in the case,
Mr. Dodge, who is forty-eight years
old, met bls young bride here at Suer-
ry's on election night, 1909. and after
an Impetuous wooing, married her in
London on January 10, 1910.
Prior to that time she and her sis

couple lived happily for a couple of

Yeung Mrs. Dodge said that when
ever she wore a jewel, a veil or any
thing that the first Mrs. Dodge had
possessed, the latter’s spirit would ap
pear before her husband and demand
that he have it removed at once.
And. according to the girl-wife, the
spirit-wife was always obeyed.
This treatment got on the nerves of
the youthful Mrs. Dodge Anally, and
she packed up and returned to this
country, leaving Mr. Dodge In London.
Immediately on her arrival here, she
