Remember them old dys Bill,
When wo rode the ranee togo'.her,
Loping across the sandy waste
In all kinds of weather?
Never a day apart Bill,
Joyous and free from care,
Happy to feel the wind in our face,
To smell the sage in the air.
Remember old Juniper's slopes Bill,
The sweet, cold springs we found,
How ro used to lie in the Soft spring
Outstretched upon, the ground,
Drowsily listening to the meadow
The sage rat's cautious "queek,"
Our pintos nipping the tender grass
That comfortable leathery squeak?
Say, but those days were great, Bill
And the days we loved the best,
When the light was hazy through
And the sunset in the west
Has a blaze of golden glory ne'er
seen by any man,
(But those who see through eyes of
As only a range man can,)
When we reach that last great round
When we meet the boys up there,
I wonder will the flowers be sweeter
Than the smell of sage in the air.
Will the Golden Stairs be brighter
Than that glory in the Wes'.;
Will the days bo longer, sweeter.
Than those we 1 oved the best?
Will we find in Heaven's bright realm
A fuller, greater peace
Than we felt in those old days Bill,
Of love that me'er would cease
They say It's full as good Bill,
No suffering, pain or care.
So as you hang up your chaps Bill,
Ask tbe good Lord to take us there.

(By C. C. Calkins)
We have promised Morrow county
farmers the latest dope on the dry
j treatment of wheat and in addition
. to the favorable results obtained in
the experiments last year they will be
i just as interested in what authorities
j think of it or how they interpret the
results of last year.
D. E. Stephens of Moro i3 enthus1!-
! astic about it and thinks it safo if
properly applied, feeling that it will
give just as good smut control and
a very much better stand.
C. E. Hill of the Waterville station
in Washington Is strong for it when
used properly, their results having
been most promising. "
Professor Hyslop of 0. A. C,
writes .as follows:
"Dear Mr. Calkins: In reply to
yours of August 4th: I too, have re
viewed the results' of the copper-carbonate
treatment and believe it Is
well worth encouraging as extensively
as is consistent with the supply of
copper-carbonate dust that can be
secured at prices within reason.
There are three points I would empha
size in connection with it:
"1. That excessively smutty wheat
should not be given the copper car
bonate treatment. (It should be
"2. That it should be thoroughly
treated with some sort of a dusting
machine that will fret it completely j
coated without the operator having to
breathe the copper-carbonate dust.
"3. That farmers be cautioned not
to sow too much seed as they will
certainly get their stands thick and
this will be especially true in the dry
part of Morrow county. I would ad
vise good careful treatment with
copper carbonate with the rate of
seeding cut down 2 5 to 30 per cent."
