Our enterprising gang over the
railroad added another victim to their
list, Saturday night. A man, hailing
from Cumbeiland county, vith his
wife and one child, arrived here on
the shoo tly Saturday night. He
says that lie had been informed that
Wilson was on a boom an J that work
was to be had fjr the asking, so he
sold out where he vvas and took the
train for this place, on arriving he
was accosted by a man who volun
teered to show him where he could
spend the night "free ot cost." He
followed and was conducted to an
empty box car, into which he climbed
and proceeded to make himself com
fortable for the night. He did not
rouse up until morning when he dis
covered that during the night some
one had entered the car and robbed
him of everything of value that he or
his wife possessed.

Electricity is becoming a greater
factor in farming every year. On the
preat sugar farms ot Germany, elec
tric plowing has become a common
thing. The majority of such farms
are already equipped with steam en
gines ; the addition of the generating
dynamos is easy, and overhead wires
or conductors laid on the ground car
ry the current to different points from
the common center. The ploughs
are operated by being hauled by the
motor wagon, and several sets of ap
paratus can In: driven simultaneously
from the same central point. I is
possible with an electrical conductor
of 1640 feet and a plowing rope of
9S5 feet working length, to plcugh
222 acres lrorn one central operation.
With a steam and dynamo equivalent
ol 2 iO horse t .ower ar.d with fiv
ploughs, 6,000 acres ol medium
heavy ground can be ploughed to a
depth ot fourteen inches at a total
cost of 95 cents per acre This is a
new lactor in agriculture, that must
ere long be taken into consideration
of the production of all the staples.
The great wheat fields of the North
west and the great corn fields of the
middle West are admirably adapted
to the use of electrical implements.
Electrical engineering will some day
be a feature of the agricltural course
in our universities.
