We believe it would be a good idea for the business men of La Harpe to offer a series of prizes to young ladies who will raise the greatest number of pounds of tomatoes from a dozen plants, or some kindred proposition. How would it do to offer the boys a prize for raising the greatest amount of pop corn from a certain space? Busy minds and hands makes bright boys and girls, and the result will be two-fold, both materially and morally. Red Seed Oats. Also Corn and Northern Feed Oats on hand at HACKNEY SON.

Daugherty. ALLEN COUNTY, KANSAS, THURSDAY, FEB. 12, 1914, NUMBER 18 Value of Bees. Mrs. F.

M. Daugherty died on Saturday, February 7. She was thirty-six years of age. Mrs. Daugherty was a splendid Christian woman.

Friends who knew well testified that she was a person whose presence was a benediction and a blessing wherever she might be. Her faithfulness was a constant inspiration. The Saviour's cause was alwayson her heart. Her life and counsel will be greatly missed in the church, being a member of the Baptist church; and her home, where she was a sweet guiding spirit, but the husband, mother, sister and brothers can find comfort in the beautiful thought of her faith and fidelity. Her life will be an enduring monument.

Its influence will not cease. On Monday at the Baptist church at 3. P. M. the funeral obsequies were held, and Rev.

Overeem paid a sincere and beautiful tribute to her Christian character. Interment was made in the Moran cemetery. Sarah E. Stocker February 5th. 1914, in the beautiful completeness of a life well rounded out in years and the high dignity of exemplary living, Mrs.

Sarah E. Stocker passed into the life beyond, full of faith and hope in the promises of God, whom she loved and honored during a long life of service in his kingdom. She became a Christian early in life and united with the Methodist church, and during all the years of loyalty and devotion 1 to the greatest plea the world has known, she grew to be a strong and beautiful character, loved by all who knew her. Truly she was possessed of those traits of character that so richly adorn the life of a noble Christian woman, and she loved the church and its service above every thing else, and while the church and her loved ones and a great host of friends will sorely miss her and realize their great loss, yet they will rejoice to know that they have been priviliged to come in touch with one so pure and so good in this rich earth life, and they will find sweet comfort in recounting her loving service among them. Mrs.

Stocker was born fiftyeight years ago in Indiana. Her husband, five sons and two daughters survive. She bequeaths to them an unsullied name, the memory of a long and happy demestic relationship, a beautiful example to imitate, and a sweet memory to love. Loving hands provided beautiful floral offerings and Rev. H.

E. Crane. of La Harpe, spoke of her life work and Christian example and the hope of eternal life. The body now rests in the beautiful Highland cemetery in Iola, Kansas, to await the Resurrection morn. The teacher training class will begin its work with the first lesson Mon.

It seems as though winter has come in earnest. The snow will be a blessing to wheat, and provide stock water. Truly everyone is greatful for this snow. Estimates show that bees in the U. S.

produce $25,000,000 worth of honey and beeswax each year. However the greatest economic value of the bee comes the part it plays in the pollination of fruit trees and certain farm crops. It is stated that two orchardists leased an old orchard of fifty acres near Cleveland, Ohio. Before they took charge that orchard had brought its owner very little return. They began to prune and spray and placed fifty colony of bees in the orchard.

In the fall they harvested 16,000 bushels of apples. Every farmer should have bees, and take the proper care of them. Wedding Bells. ALBERT PAYSON TERHUNE AN A WOMAN do as youth strength she and of pleases her by in will, the her the force of her determination, avoid the consequences Can she, by laborious secrecy and tireless evasion, make the world judge her as the world judges men and not as the world judges women? Can she- once and once onlystep beyond the bounds fixed by Society and resolutely step back without a penalty? This great problem of a Woman's Will Against the World is the problem of The Woman -a problem only shadowy in the play, become salient and challenging in the intense, arresting story which Mr. Terhune has based upon the powerful de Mille play produced with such great success by Belasco.

Watch this paper for the first installment of this interesting story. OUR NEXT SERIAL. This story will commence in the third paper of the February issues.

Cooksey. Mr Cooksey is a brother of the bride. We will give these two happy events a fine recognition in next week's issue. Special Address by Rev. H.

E. Crane. On next Sunday afternoon at the First M. E. church, Rev.

Crane will deliver a Sermon Address entitled the "Manly Man" to the men and boys of the city over 16 vears of age. This is an address that Mr. Crane has delivered by request a number of times and deals with the problems that a man must meet. There is nothing sensational at all in this Sermon Address, but just a frank discussion of some of the sins and habits men are often addicted to. The men of the church are very anxious that as large a number of the men as possible should be present and we hope to make this a helpful service.

The revival meetings will continue over Sunday night at least and we expect that the church will rally to these services. Friday night the Junior choir will sing for us, giving a new number you have never heard and we are sure that all will enjoy this part of the service. U. S. Gets Professor.
