Breeding Stock Need Utile Corn
On account of the big crdp there
may be a tendency to feed considera
ble corn to breeding stock this win
ter. Careful stock raisers keep, down
the corn ration, especially to brood
sows.' Heavy feeding of corn is not
recommended for any kind of breed
ing stock and is especially bad for
hogs. The College of Agriculture
suggests that oats, barley, alfalfa
and other feeds be substituted for
corn to a large extent. Many farm-
lers obtain good results by running
their brood sows in the cornstalks or
alfalfa fields. Moderate grain feed
ing plus exercise give beneficial' re
sults. Pfenty-of hayf- and ''small
amounts 6f corn and oats will put
ewes through the winter in good con
dition. Cattle and horses can use up
much more corn tahn hogs and sheep,
but they need only limited quanti
ties, especially if they have plenty
of hay or run in the cornstalks.

Tho program of the Sunday school
given at Salem last Fridv night was
a pronounced success. Despite tho
cold night and tho drifts of snow,
there .was a house full even as wo
would have, and there were some of
our people from a good way off.
bht what a time we had. At 7:80
tho Brown family orchestra began to
dispense good music to the delight
of tho gathering congregation. For
half an hour the air was full of notes
frjb'm- th"j instruments and most of.
us' uiaf nop 'caro wnouier- meT.ruura
came on later or not, if we could
have tho music. This may not be
ppeaklng fbr the chillrcn, however.
Then came the program, and It was
nil well done, and of course enjoyed.
That is the way Salem does things.
Santa Claus came in very quietly be
fore the superintendent was through
his say, and of cour&e he did not get
lo finish. Wo will have to change
our notion of the old jolly fellow, for
we hud always thought him a breezy
blusterer, Quiet being a namo his
daddy forgot to give him when he
was little. But ho came and went,
and left Mr. M. G. Learner to manage
the presents and treat, being assist
ed by a number of the young folks.
Two speeches by Mr. Learner wero
forgot, probably because the call to
tho platform was so sudden. There
was a little presentation speech to
bomado in behalf of tho Sunday
school in giving a fur cap to Mr. Cul
bertson in appreciation of his work
ns superintendent. Then t'lere was
n gift of $25 for tho pastor from the
church, for which he is very thank
ful. But both got to their pliico.
Treats, candy, apples, and nuts.
If thcro is nothing goes amiss,
watch this space for an announce
ment next week for something special
for Sunday, January 9th.
Because of the kindness of Joe Cul
bertson tho pastor did not have to
walk to church last Sunday, and his
family got to go to church. From
the services we wont to Mr. G. W.
Bates, for "second Christmas" dinner,
and at night Mr. Bates brought uh
home. It is but a mutter of per
sonal modesty which keeps us from
saying here how to establish and
maintain the right and most blessed
relation of pastor and people.

prcsumptlvo evldcnco that William
the Conqueror was unable to write,

This collection of Norman charters

Stnplcton, one of tho ancestors of
the barony of Beaumont, and lmi been
preserved for centuries at Carlton
Towers. Its salo is attributed to tho
costs of the war and tho present high
The earliest grant Is undated, but
was wade between the years-1007 and
1070. It Is In Latin, on vellum, and
Is n grant by Walderanrt (do Moulin?)
for the salvation of the soul' of his
lord, William 1, king of, the English,
and others, to St. Stephens church,
Caen, of the Church of 'St. Mary. In
serted In their names aro the crosses
of the witnesses, AVIMaui, king of the
English; Mutalda, tho queen; John,
archbishop (of Itoilen?) ; Roger Bel
tuontensts (Beaumont) and iltobert
Behnontensls (Beaumont). The docu
ment Is one of the most Interesting
autographs that Is likely to come Into
the auction room for some time. The
evidence of William the conqueror's
Illiteracy Is not conclusive, however,
as It may have been thought beneath
the dignity of tho king to write his
name, as William' Roberts suggests.
King Henry I also signed one of tho
charters with his cross.

Razor Strokes to Shave.
Thero Is n barber In I-omlon, Eng

he has computed the number of razor
strokes that go to a cU'im shave. Ho

of his count on any customer. "You
shall keep tho count yourself, sir,"
,Tho first man rouuted 100 strokes
made by tho barber. "Much too low,
sir," said ilto barber. "But knowing
you were counting I couldn't help tak
ing longer strokes. It takes more, sir,
His own computation Is that, on an j
average, It takes 200 strokes to shavo

sons a day, sq many days a week, how -many
times does tho barber use his'
razor a week?"
" 'Undreds of thousands, sir," says i
the barber. Pinned to something more j

Tests for Diamonds.
The true diamond Is not cut by a

a luster that, shows clearly even when
tho stone Is immersed In water. A
small drop of wuter dropped on the
face of a clean, dry diamond preserves
Its globular form ami dues not spread.
When u lino Is drawn on u diamond

then rubbed briskly with moistened

without much pressure, while UiQ.lnu
