Last week it seemed to be the general
opinion among farmers with whom we
talked that winter wheat had suffered
severely during the winter; many of
them reporting whole fields killed;
others only portions of the fields. Talk
ing with aomeof the same men this week
they tell us it is not so bad as they
thought it was; that fields which last
week seemed entirely dead are this week
showing life, and would probably come
out all right. No doubt many fields are
injured in spots, but not bo seriously as
reported. Early reports every spring
kills many acres of wheat that afterwards
produce a good crop.
This community was greatly shocked
last Sunday when a dispatch from Sioux
City announced that Louie Loseke had
died at a hospital in that city that morn
ing, where he went' the Monday liefore
for an operation for appendicitis. Few
of his ac:juiantance knew that he was
thus afflicted, or that he had gone away
for treatment. It snews that he had
been doctoring for several months with
no relief, and finally decided upon an
operation, and last week Monday, in
company with luauister. Mrs. Chris Mar
ten, he went to the hospital. The opera
tion was performed Tuesday afternoon
and so quickly did he rally from it and
feel bo strong that his Bister, thinking
all danger past, came home Friday.

Last Sanday evening a broken rail
waa discovered on the Northwestern

had it not been discovered, it would
doubtless have resulted in a wreck. The

broken rail before the morning passen
P. J. Mullen was in town Monday and
said that he was testing his seed corn
and had, so far, found considerable of it
poor. He was surprised at the amount
of poor seed. Others who are testing
are finding much of their seed to be
worthless. The large percentage of poor
seed throughout the north half of the
state is due to the early winter. It is
evident that the corn in Boone county ia
no exception and that unless care is
taken in selecting seed this spring the
crop will be short. Those who tind their
stands of corn spotted and poor, will
doubtless blame the cut worms.

"I am not worrying so much aliont an

day, "as I am. a bout the quality of my

in the country and some of it is going to
be used for se-d, which means a poor

have planted wotne selections from my

The interpretation of Bach must al-

too hard than tco soft, explains Fer-

.Delineator. Affected methods, such as
a "soulful" swelling of the phrases,
-coquettish hurrying or hesitating, too
light staccato, too smooth legato, pedal
debauchery-all these are vicious and

proiier sense of proportion a certain
elasticity or the tempo, giving the in
terpretation greater freedom, will im
prove the playing of Bach materially.
The modernization of Bach's compo
sitions bv such masters as Liszt and

by all clear thinking musicians as not
derogatory to the master's style. It
.affords rather a completeness of ex
