i Sf and in their accustomed places of worship, with prayer and songs of praise, render thanks to God for ail His mercies, for the abundant harvests which have rewarded the toil of the husbandman during the year that lias passed, and for the rich rewards that have followed the labors of our people in their shops and their marts of trade and traffic.

And mindful of tlie afflictive dispensation with which a portion of our land has been visited, let us, while we humble ourselves before the power of God, acknowledge His mercy in setting bounds to the deadly march of pestilence, and let our hearts be chastened by sympathy with our fellow countrymen who have suffered and who mourn. And as we return thanks for all the blessings which we have received from the hands of our heavenly Father, let us not forget that He has enjoined upon us charity, and on this day of thanksgiving Jet us generously remember the poor and needy, so that our tribute of traise ami gratitude may be acceptable in the sight of the Lord.

The Feeders Winter of Discontent. lrof Shelton, Director of the Experiment Station at uthe- Agricultural college, says Short pastures obliged us to gather the College herd into winter quarters October 1, although the weather was warm aud sunny, and as unlike winter as one kind of weather can bo unlike another.

This means a steady pull at the hay mow and granery until the middle of April, at best, or much more likely until May 16, an uninterrupted feediug season of six anil one-half or seven mouths. The thought of this tremeudiug feeding season is not calculated to re-assure the mortgaged-bur-dened farmer. We wish to observe here that the question, how to reduce this feeding season, or, if it cannot be reduced, how to mitigate its terrors, is the most important of the problems that press upon us for solution to-day. The lame-grass question, the ensilage question, und a half-dozen other agricultural ideas that will occur to most minds, all bear upon this, the central aud vital thought how to lessen the expense of wintering our stock. As bearing directly upon this idea, we wish to offer a tew suggestions: 1.

A field of early.sowu rye, of size to suit the herd, or one clover and orchard grass preferred should be reserved for use at the time of the failure of the regular pasture fields. Corn and sorgnum one or both, when planted thickly, in drills, aud harvested when the seed is in the dough state, an unsurpassed feed, which may be hauled to the barnyard aud there fed with little waste during our dry fall season, to the great relief of the hay-mows. 3. Strip the herd remorselessly of ev ery hoof that is not sure to make 8 steady growth during the winter. Every barren female or doubtful breeder, every fairly grown steer or barrow ought to be seut to the butcher, or turned into the feed lot as preliminary thereto.

There are thbusauds ot animals iu Kansas, and every other fcState, that after having been wintered at an expense of $15 to $20, will be worth less, considered intrinsically, or from the standpoint of the market next May, othan they will fetch now. 1 -Have an Elegant Line of- Ceiling Decoration Starks Grocery Company will GASH for all produce and poultry.

Stork Farmer. A model stock farmer is he who is content with nothing but the best, either in flocks or herds. He may possibly grow such stock as his farm is best adapted to, or he may buy a farm suited to the rearing of a certain kind of stock that particularly strikes his fancy, but in either case he stops short of nothing pay but the highest type of that which he breeds'.

The man who has a well-filled pocket-book and can stock his farm with pure breeds, with fashionable pedigrees, is not necessarily a model stock farmer. Such a one may be a very poor breeder indeed anything else but a model. It is no feat of wis doni to be able to purchase the prizewinners from some ones has spent years to bring his animals up to tin's hgh state of perfection. To the farmer that begins at the bottom of the ladder and with only the scrub stock that his limited means will buy, pro duces a flock or herd of superior animals by judicious crossing and grading up, the mede of praise is due. He makes the business a special life study finds great delight in experimenting and watching the results of his labors, and sets an example worth to be imitated.

He is in deed and in truth the model stock farmer. We learn to look to him for advice and instruction in his specialty, and we always find him just as reaily to impart as we are to receive the knowledge desired. However enthusiastic and energetic he may be in his work, he is never to busy to counsel the new beginner and give to him whatever is disired from his fund of wisdom. In practice he breeds to get all there is in the favorite kinds of animals he keeps upon the farm. He generally has a specialty of some particular breed of stock and improves it, approximating affection according to his standard of excellency, but he does not do this to the detriment of other kinds of stock, for they receive proper attention, and are graded up to high degree excellence.

The model stock farmer is of incalculable worth to the community in which he lives, but often receives poor W. H. BROADWELL. Last Monday evening burgulars tried to force an entreuce into the store of The back door was considerably damaged and a number of tools were found near, which had been taken from the blacksmith shop of Geo.

Blue Hound Fire, Last Friday morning news reached La Cygne of the destruction of the main part of the business street of Blue Mound. In all 22 store buildings Were consumed and most all the stocks of merchandise. The Joss is estimated at $100,000 and the insurance will reach $40,000. The origin of the fire is not known but it' is supposed to have started' in a drug store on the south side of the street. The wind was blowing very hard and it was impossible to control the flames, water was very scarce and the town had no fire apparatus with which to light the But fewbusiness buildings are left, the principal one, the opera house, in which is the bank, was saved.

This is a sad loss to the beautiful little city. The Ann of Cozad, Glucklieh Fisher, well known in La Cygne, lost their entire stock of groceries and about one-half of stock of dry goods, and their store building. Out of $20,000 of property they saved about $8,000 aud this was badly damaged. They were insured by $8,500. They immediately bought a new stock of groceries and are now doing business again.

The build ing that the Sun printing office was in was consumed, and the material of the office badly demoralized. The presses were broken and ruined, the enterprising proprietors have gathered up the pieces and will continue to publish the paper, doing the press work at Mound City. Messrs. Barnes Platt have our sympathy and we hope they will soon recover the lost ground aud let their "Snn shine as before.

The Mayor received a notice Friday from the Quartermasters Department at Washington, that the i $2500, appropriated for the soldiers monument at this place was ready to be paid over as soon as they secured a deed for the lots upon which the holdiers are buried. This appropriation was secured through agency and efforts of Sen. Plumb. Lot the people of Mound City see to it that they do their duty towards forming the Legislature, so as to send him back.

Mound City Progress. The public schools deserve mention for their work. LaCygue lias reason to feel proud of the good organization and grading of her schools. Since the schools were organized under the present system their growth in efficiency has been constant. To-day the work is better than ever in all respects.

Discipline is good, instruction is above the average, and the interest grows corres pond ingl.y. Correspondent to the Mound City Clarion. -AND- But tne poorest, and, in all respects, meanest, way of attempting the curtailment of the winter feeding season is the all too popular one of holding the herd upon tho brown amlj lifeless pastures long after the time when most of the grass has been consumed, while the little that remains is next to worthless in consequence of heat and frost. This practice of holding herds upon worn-out pastures and worthless stalk fields costs Kansas herds, every year, much of the flesh laid on during the summers, and Kansas farmers a sunt of mouey that looks up into the millions.

The Chicago, Santa Fe California Railway, being the Chicago extension of the Atchison road, is completed to Chicago, and commences on Sunday, April 29th, to run through trains from Kansas Gily, iopeka, Atchison and St. Joseph to that city. The trains of the new line will be of the Vestibule patteren, of which so much has been said in the east, and will give the people of the west an opportunity to dip in and enjoy this much vaunted luxury. The idea oi popularizing the line with travelers has induced the Santa Fe to make a notable inovation connected with its Vestibule Trains: no extra charge will be made. All eastern lines charge extra for the additional accommodation.
