Just Issued, is to destroy tho stubble
hhortly after harvest. The flaxseeds or
puparia aro left in the stubble after
harvest, and these should be destroyed
by early deep plowing, done so cure
fully that tho stubble Is thrown to the
bottom of the furrow and completely
covered, thus entrapping the tiles.
Tkla plowing should be doue very soon
after harvest before any of the tiles
emerge) and should be followed by a
sufficient number of cultivations to
maintain a fine, weed. free soil mulch
until the flold Is seeded. Such treat
went makes for the highest yields,
while the keeping down of volunteer
grain serves to scatter uuy summer
brood. Where for any reason mid
summer plowiug Is undesuable, the
flaxseeds may be destroyed by burning

You Can't Afford
to Miss It
I WHAT THE FROGS HEARD
By W. W. WHALEN.
It was six o'clock on a Juno morn
ing. His freight had now come to
tho top of the heavy Locust Summit
grade, and as ho stood on the roof of
a box car ho Baw a girl kneeling at an
open upstairs window In tho house
adjoining tho station. Her head lay
on her hands; a fow of her curls hung
out over the window-ledge and waved
in tho breeze. Ben got off the car and
stood looking up at her.- This chanco
perhaps Fortuno herself had put in his
way. How often he had watched
those black curls through the station
'window, when he chanced to bo there,
'and Cora Goyne was in sight! Yet
she had novcr seen him. He gave a
Could anything be prettier ' than
that round, dimpled, sleepy dark face
which started up from the window
sill, the eyes bright from sloop, the
hair gracefully disordered! For a sec
ond or two she was bewildered. She
looked down, and saw an engine and
train standing and something else;
a brakeman, cap In hand, looking up
Into her face.
For only an Instant she gazed at
him; then, with a little cry of morti
fication, leaped away from tho window
and disappeared from his vlow. But
In that instant, she had, with a wom
an's facility, noted how yellow his
hair and mustacho were, how big and
blue his oyes, how brawny his shoul
ders, and how handsome his face.
That was their introduction. They
became i lovers. Every day Ben's train
stopped nt Locust Summit, and every
day Cora mado it a point to meet
him; sometimes for only a word,
Bomotlmes for a prolonged conversa
tion. His southern heart yearned to
wards this lovely bit of northern wom
anhood. Tt was a night In July. Ben's train
was waiting for orders. He and his
sweetheart wero conversing In low
tones, as they walked up and down
"So you liked 'Tho Last of tho' Mo
hicans?'" "Yes, very much; but I Bhpuld havo,
Ukod tho story better had MaJ. Hey
ward married Cora and not Alice."
"That is Just what I liked about,
It. No wonder Major Heyward was
disgusted with Cora when her father
told him of her birth."
"Her birth? I don't understand."
"Why, her mother was a creolo, or
Bomethlng; thero was a traco of ne
gro or Indian blood In Cora, faint per
haps, but there for all that." The
girl trembled nnd grew pale to tho
ll"a. Ho felt her quiver on his arm.
"Surely you are not chilly tonight;
She was taken unawares, but her
answer shed only a faint light on
her thoughts. "What a coincidence
that my name la Cora, too!" she blurt
"Be my wife, dearest; say yes." No
sound from her colorless lips. Ho
pressed her again to him. "You lit
tle goose, I thought I know you, but
now I see that no man can over un
derstand a woman. Who'd think you
so shy? Well, tho anawer tomorrow."
Ho bounded across tho rails, a
spring, ho climbed tho side of a house
car; stood on tho top, cap in hand,
tho moonlight falling on his yellow
hair; a kiss from tho tips of his
finders, tlfon tho train rolled by and
Cora waB nlone.
- She looked at tho green waters of
tho swamp, whence came the sonorous
voices of the frogs.
"Oh, if I had never mot him!" she
cried, In so low a tone that only tho
frogs heard her. "And now to give
him up! Was It your fault, mother
dear, that your mother was a mu
latto?" Was there In the music of the frogs
any note thai caused her to shud
"Cora! Cora! where are you!"
Her aunt's voice reached her ears.
The girl started to )xer feet at the
sound, so suddenly that she well nigh
fell Into the water. She hurried down
the railroad to meet her aunt, who
stood near tho station. There was
an engine, a "puBher," standing near,
wheezing and panting.
"Got Into the engine, Cora. Hero
is a bat. I'll go with you."
Her aunt led the way and Cora
wonderlngly followed her into the
cab. Her uncle was there, and on
his saying, "All right," the engineer
started the engine, and the frogs'
songs died away In the distance.
"Cora, I must bo abrupt. It has Just
come up over, the wires that Jim Gib
bons' freight ran away down tbe
grade and plunged off the track at
"And Ben Evens Is killed?" came in
a hollow sound from Cora's lips.
"No, he'B hurt and wants you."
Ben was lying on the bank on some
coats which the men standing around
had furnished; his eyes opening and
closing, his breath falling, but he
"Little wife" ho whispered, as her
arm stole about hlsXneck, and hor hot
lips pressed his forehead, "that was
not to bo on earth, but God grant it
will bo In heaven."
With a great offort ho raised his
armtfTput them about her, pressed her
to him, and then all was over..
From her heart aroso tho words:
"It waB not to bo on earth, but it
will bo in heaven. Thank God, ho
never know." -
