Maupinite of Charge
of Law Violation
The following from Thursday's
Chronlclt will Inform our readers re
garding the disposition of the cu in
which The Timet man hu figured
since the adjournment of the May
grand Jury, and about which there
hat been much ipeculation around
Maupin alnct that time.
C. W, Semmes, Maupin publisher,
wu a free man today following a
verdict of not gulity of a itatutory
charge Involving 12-year-old Marie
Sfefert, voted on the first ballot by a
circuit court Jury at about 9 o'clock
Tht Jury wu out a little mora
than 10 minutes, just long enough to
elect a foreman and prepare and
caat ballot. Tha first ballot wai
variously reported aa being unani
mous for acquital and 114 for ac
qultaL at all event, the sentiment
of tha Jury was overwhelming in
favor of the accused man.
The ability of the defense to sue
cessf ully prove that Semmes was oc
cupied away. from home on tha day
stated by tha prosecution and the
girl aa. that on which the alleged Im
mral relations occurred, proved
overwhelming to tha Jury.
' Failure to convict In" the Semmes
case caused District Attorney Francis
V. Callowey today to move to dlmiss
the case against Anton Selfert,
father of the girl, Indicted by tha
grand Jury for statutory crime
against his daughter. Evidence In
tha Seifert case would be less likely
to convict than in tha first trail, it
An interesting fact, which u not
made known until after tha verdict
was brought in, was that E. D. Ger
main, defense attorney with John L.
Cavln, is a half-brother of Semmes.
An attorney at Longview, Wash., he
eama to The Dalles at his own rolo-
tlon to take part in tha defense of

Feed for The Dairy Cow
Timothy ' hay and hays poor In
quality are low in food value and de
ficient in minerals. The feeding of
liberal amounts of a proper grain
mixture and silage with such hays
supplies deficient food nutrients.
Such a ration however, will still ba
deficient in minerals, which are re
quired in liberal amunts, for milk
production. Of the minerals needed
calcium and phosphorus are of most
importance. A lack of there in tha
feed may seriously lower production
especially of high producing cows.
Phosphorus is plentiful in wheat
bran, cottonseed meal, and llneed
oil meal. If one or more of these
feeds constitute one-fourth to one
third of the patn ratfon by weight
plenty of phosphorus will be sup
plied. Calcium or lime is much more
abundant in well cured legume hays
than in timothy. In a good quality
of legume hay, plenty of calcium will
be supplied. There is a general
agreement that the best results in
mineral feeding are obtained by feed
ing well cured legume hay, although
the feeding of calcium in the form
of bone meal or ground limestone
added to the grain ration to supply
the lima deficient hu been recom
mended. Homely Philosophy
Absence makes the picture post
The man who lives by his wits is
not always a high liver.
Misery loves company but not any
more than happiness.
Many a seemingly successful man
owes it all to his wife's father.
Keep you eyes on the humble
man. Perhaps he is lying low for the
purpose of humbling you.
Many a man's reputation, for
truthfulness goes lame when he be
gins to say things about himself. V

Good dairy cows while milking
should not be overly fat They can
well be fed enough to put on some
flesh during the - dry period and
should be fed so u to keep in good

feeding are (1) feed a balanced
ration, (2) feeding according to pro
duction all the good roughage that
the cow "will consume and generally
1 pound of concentrates for each 3
to 3 Mi pounds of milk produced. If
a balanced ration is fed and the cow
gets too fat the amount of feed
ahould be reduced somewhat If she
is producing heavily and getting too
poor in flesh, she is either not re

not properly balanced. . .
There is no foundaton for the

The idea sems to' have orginally

supposed to contain relatively large

however no experimental evidencs
to warrant the assumption that phos
phorus is any more essential to the
brain than nitrogen, potassium or
any other element that occurs in its
tissues. Various other foods furnish
a higher proportion of phosphorus
