night , after an illness scarcely twenty-
'our hours in duration. In the full
) loom of lovely womanhood , a wife of
but two years , approaching maternity ,
in the apparent enjoyment of buoyant
health , without premonition she passed
into an unconsciousness that ushered
her bright spirit home. The last solemn
rites were performed on Monday. Mr.
and Mrs. Babcock of McCook mingling
their tears with the stricken relatives at
Cambridge on the sad occasion. Deep

for the husband , father and sister , who
are thus called upon to feel earth's
keenest sorrows , to bear a most grievous
cross of affliction.
One of the most important improve
ments on a Kansas farm is an artificial
pond. By evaporation moisture is re
tained on the place and better crops are
grown by it. If you have no draw on
your place select a point on the lojver
side of a sjope , plow and scrape out a
hole and then plow two furrows in shape
of O < 3 coming together at the excava
tion. If you have a ravine , choose the
lowest place so as to catch as much
water as possible in case of light rain
in a dry time. Take the earth from the
upper side and build the dam very wide
and high and after you think you have
it high enough , build it four feet higher.
No pond is a permanent institution
without a mud dam above , especially
where the water is caught from plowed
ground : this is made the same as any
other pond , only smaller , and built just
above high water mark in the perma
nent pond. The mud pond must be
scraped out as soon as it is filled and
dry. All dams should be fenced and
planted to our native basket willow as
soon as made , especially so where hogs
have access to the pond. Carp can be
kept in and sunfish out by having the
water escape over a long plank set on
edge and staked there. Kans. People.

ng far out of his cab window the rear section
truck the head end with sufficient force to
lirow Nelson out onto his head , breaking
lis neck , and causing instant death. The
ireman ran the train into Oxford , and the
ead body was brought to McCook on the
