Jo. Gross tells us of a method of treat
ing scab which may be valuable to some
sheep growers The shepherd carries
with him a vial of turpentine. If be
notices a sheep scratching or biting it
self, with his crook the shepherd im
mediately catches the sheep, examines it
thoroughly, and if the Bcab, in any stage
of the disease, is found, the skin is
abraded with a knife, and a small quan
tity of turpentine jwured into the sore,
and thus the disease so destructive to
sheep is prevented from spreading.
Capt. Miles Warren of llutler county
says that crops in his neighborhood in
Butler county are looking line corn a
little backward because of the heavy
and frequent rains, but is climbing along
at a rapid rate. The small grain, he
says, is tilling belter than he ever knew
it before, lie is decidedly in favor of
painting trees, and thinks the box elder
and the ash will take the lead. Walnut
does well, hut is a slow growth. Of
course he has planted other forest trees,
besides different varieties of fruit trees,
the latter protected from winds by the
former. He will boon have wood enough
to answer him for fuel.

Last Friday morning, about live
o'clock John Munter of Monroe was
found on tbe front porch of the room
ing house, west of the Clother hotel,
in an unconscioim condition. At first
it was thought that be was under
tbe intluence of liquor, but later it de
veloped that he was in a dying condition.
A physician was called and he at once
said there was no hope for him, as he
had taken poison. Munter lingered un
til about 2p.m., when he died and the
conditions surrounding his death were
such that an inquest was decided on,
and acting Coroner Burke impanelled a
jury, who returned a verdict of suicide,
it being developed during tbe inquest
that he had drank whisky and carbolic
acid. Undertaker Gass took charge of
tbe remains and Saturday afternoon
they were shipped to Monroe, where tbe
funeral was held, and he was buried in
the Friends' cemetery, near Genoa.

died last Saturday morning at her home
northwest of the Burlington depot.
Mrs. Young was born near Belleville,
Ontario, Canada, May 1, 1843, a daugh
ter of Henry and Hannah Jones (nee
White). Mrs. Young had four brothers
and four sisters, only one of whom is yet
living Mrs. Annie Briokman, near Belle
ville, Ontario. Mrs. Young moved from
Canada in January, 1874, and settled on
a homestead fourteen miles north of
Columbus, Nebraska. Later bought and
moved to the farm one mile north of
town and for tbe past five years has
resided in this city. In October, 1909, it
was necessary for her to undergo a
severe surgical operation for internal
troubles, brought on. by a saver cold,
but tbe operation was too late to repair
the ravages of disease. Her last days
and death were cheered and comforted
surrounded by her six children George
II. Lawrence, It. U. Lawrence, Mrs.
Ernest Mayes, Winifred, Ray and Ruby
Young. Mrs. Young was a cousin of the
late M. H. White aud Dr. Samuel A.

County Assessor Shell Clark's annual
summary of the work of bis deputies al
ways contains interesting information,
as it gives approximately tbe aiuouat
and value of the personal property of
the county. For instance tbe report
shows that on April 1 there were but 128
automobiles in tbe county, and this will
no doubt show the largest change of any
item in this list next year, judging from
the number of cars being sold. Sixty
two threshing machines and eight corn
shelters are required in the county, and
1481 dogs of all descriptions are owned
by residents of Platte county. There are
12,:r0 horses of all ages, 743 mules and
36,0J0 cattle. Some one listed one ton
of broom corn, which shows a valuation of
$0. But eight bushels of 1I in tbe
county would indicate that the day of
raising flax in tbe county had long since
passed. Corn on hand ehows up tbe
largest, tbe total being 1,303,105 bushels.
Sheep and goats are not very plentiful,
there being IMC, while Platte county
farmers had on hand 33,961 hogs to re
port to the assessors. Five hundred
and sixty-seven pianos are listed, and
what diamonds those who oan afford to
have are valued at $1510. Tbe actual
value of improved lands is $21,038,235,
which seems a pretty good figure, and
the actual value of town lota is $1,065,250.
