The detailed prospectus of The Twentieth Century Farmer
for the year 1903-4 will be issued shortly, but in the interval its
publishers desire to announce that the steady improvement
shown in that publication from its inception will be still moio
marked in the coming twelve months, keeping fully abreast with
the rapidly expanding subscription list and the regularly increas
ing advertising patronage. The Twentieth Century Farmer has
forged to the front as the most up-to-date and popular agricul
tural weekly in the country, typical in every feature of the push
and enterprise of the western farmer. It will appeal to every
member of the farmer's family and to every one interested in
rural pursuits with special emphasis on the great stock raising
industry. None of the other departments of agriculture, how
ever, are neglected and the whole tone of the paper is directed
toward broadening and uplifting life and work on the farm. The
big state fairs are now coming on. The Twentieth Century Farmer
will be represented at each of them by a competent staff and will
review in successive issues the progress reflected in the exhibits.
Those who are not familiar with the paper should write for
sample copies' and advertising rates. No one interested in west
ern agriculture can afford to go without reading The Twentieth
Century Farmer from week to week and no one who wants to
reach the most intelligent members of the farming communities
of Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, South Dakota. Wyoming,
Colorado and adjoining states can afford not to use its advrrtis
lng columns. '

The scheme formulated by Cornelius Van
derbllt for the establishment of an Amer
ican art school In Paris has fallen through,
owing to the procrastination on the part
of the owners of the Chateau de la Muette,
who had been offered 15,000,000 francs for
tho property. The chateau was once the
home of Marie Antoinette. The owners
demanded 1,000,000 francs for the property.
Mr. and Mrs. John L. Wayne of Albany,
N. Y., born the same day sixty-eight years
ago, died on the 10th Inst, within a few
hours of each other and were burled to
gether. The aged couple were devoted
to each other during a long married life.
The husband died first of apoplexy. When
she realised that he was gone Mrs. Wayne
took to her bed and shortly after died.
Scrub women of Toledo, O., have formed
a trust. Two months ago they raised their
wages from 11 to 11.26 a day; a few days
ago they demanded 11.60 and two meals a
day. Cleaners In public schools and olhce
buildings, as well as In private houses, are
included. Scarcity of help compels the
granting of the demsnd.
The contracts awarded by the Minnesota
Stale Board of Control for supplies for the
ensuing quarter include a considerable
quantity of chewing gum to pacify the
patients of the Insane asylums and the
state hospitals. The observation of tbe
board Is that chewing gum often has an
excellent effect on the patients, snd that
It ennblea the Inmates to concentrate their
minds on various forms of work and
soothes them during violent spells. On be
ing given gum some of the violent patients
have been known to collect their wits and
diligently pursue a task.
A curious place for swarming has been
chosen by a hive of bees at Arcot Hail,
n.ar Newcastle, England. The bees had
swarmed up an apple tree, and the gar
dener, on going up a ladder to examine,
was startled by observing a green linnet
fly out of the middle of the swarm. Closer
investigation revealed Its nest, with two
engs in It, the queen bee having settled on
the nest with her attendant hosts, the
green linnet meanwhile calmly sitting on
her eggs. With great rare the gardener
cut off the bough of the apple tree swarm,
nest and all and, after having smoked the
bees off, he carefully stuck the bough up
again. The linnet returned to her est. and
Is tow sluing oa four eggs.
