Clarence Dixon When Young.
Many Cleveland county people were
'interested in the announcement of the
approaching marriage in London of
Rev. A. Clarence Dixon, a native uf
this county and son of the late Rev.
Thomas Dixon. The announcement rc
■ all. d to sou.,- a sermon preached Lv
Rev. Mr. I)i\i t, who is one of the
world’s most noted divines, in the
MVtropol't >.n Tabernacle, London. The
ormon told of a boy preacher in a
little country church, ami what makes
the following experience told by him
more interesting is the fact that the
boy preacher was the Rev. Clarence
Dixon himself end the little country
church was in this county:
‘‘A young man why was preaching
at a little country church for a few
’months before going to college began
t > pray that God would enable him
to baptize just 100 people in that v ■
huge. “Lord,” he prayed, “if thou wi t
give me just 100, no more anti in
•'e s, I shall know that thou dost an
swer prayer;' and I shall never doubt
thee as long as I live. Months passed,
and the day arrived when he must go
to the theological seminary. The day
before he left he went to the little
church, where ninety-four people had
been baptized. A deacon told him th- 1
five other-, were waiting to be bap
t;zr !. He borrowed some clothes ard
went L> a pond two miles away,
'praising God that the total of ninetv
ni.ie had been reached. As the student
wn conducting the service before en
tering the water, a man touched him
on the shoulder and said, “My wife is
being baptized, and 1 want to go
down with her .” The young man said
“Oh, hut you haven’t any clothes. ’
d he man said he didn’t care, and the
voting preacher baptized him in his
-Sunday go-to-meeting coat, and sent
■ im home two miles pway ringing
‘"c* So there were just 100, no mo-•
no h sand I know that it i
true, for the young man who put God
io t .e test in those days of ignorance

Bank To Distribute
There will newer bo anything half

people ns other people. We enjov
"111-sic. we are interested in art and
science, but nothing so tugs at ou:
heart-strings as the things which hap,
pen to neople just , like ourselves.
The folders, written in story form,
to be distributed every month by the
Cleveland Bank and Trust C'o\ de
serve to be received with the keenest
interest and approval.
According to the bank’s officers,
these stories are to deal with th
lives and fortunes of a typical famib
- not geniuses, nor people the least
bit out of the ordinary, but “Ju
folks ’ like the rest of us.
In the first story to be ma'led thi
month—under the heading “The Jo
of l iving”—the bank introduces f;i.
family at one of their informal gath
erings. And right from this first ac
quaintance ,on through the other stor
ies that go to make up the series, th
reader may see mirrored his own
’deals, ambitions, problems, struggles
And,*too, he will learn from thi
hpppy united family group much thai
will be of help to him—-much that
will give him a firmer, truer grasp on
the realities of life—and mudi tha'
will increase his own “joy of living,”
The literature to be distributed by
the bank is not only interesting, ir
that the stories related arc so true to
life, but also because they are so
handsomely illustrated with photo- j
graphs, some in full color—likely to j
be regained and- prized for their ar- ;

Improve Palatability of
Roughage for Dairy Cows ;
Th«-farmer who has much low-grade !
und unpalatable roughage which he ;!
must feed may find In molasses a 1
mt'umt of greatly Improving the ration
for his live stock. It hns been found
when roughage la moistened with di
luted molasses animals greedily con- ;
Ordinarily cane molasses contain* j
about <53 per cent sugar, 3.11 per cent j
protein, 6.1 per cent mineral matter j
und 20.7 per cent water. Being low In I
protein, It should be used In place of j
corn or similar feeds. It seems to j ■
have practically the same feeding i!
value pound for pound as corn, where !
It replaces a part of the corn in fha
ration, In spite of the fact that It j
contains more water.
This la probably because cane mo- j
lasses has characteristics lacking in j j
com. It Is even more palatable and j
more digestible than corn. In adill- j
tlon, It Is slightly laxative and Is fre j
quently used us an appetizer and con
ditloner. Like linseed oil meal, It hns
the power of putting the sleek, glossy
coats upon animals which ure a sure
Indication of good health and vigor. '
Cane molasses can be fed to nil j i
classes of farm live stock except young 1,
calves, AVlth them It causes scouring. !j
Its best use, however, Is for animals I
adapted to eating roughage, especial- j (
ly cattle and horses.
For .these animals, the molasses may jj
he diluted In proportion of one part jj
by weight of molasses to three parts!
"f water and then sprinkled over (lie
roughage or silage. Corn fodder
Should, however, be chopped first.
Feeders avoid the chief difficulty In
using molasses by feeding it In this
manner. When given undiluted, the
thick, sticky nature of the molasses
causes practical difficulties.
No benefit will be obtained from
feeding molasses to cattle or horses
unto;;* each receives from one pint to
one quart, or from one and one-half
pounds to three pounds a day. A larg
er amount <-nn be fed, but usually not
more than five or six pounds should
be given; otherwise it loses its supeet
or;ty over corn ns a feed.
Dairy Cows Need Water
in Sufficient Quantity
The frilure to supply cows with
plenty of water is responsible for many
a poor milk yield. Milk ^s largely
water, regardless of all the pleasantries
that have centered about the dairy
man's pump. A cow must have water
In sufficient quantity to produce milk
Just as u steam engine must have wa- j
ter with which to make steam. It Is
shortsighted dairy economy which
| skimps on one of the least expensive
• of the many essentials that contribute
j to the making of milk through proc
, esses that center in the bovine nn
1 atomy. A western dairyman, wliosl
(lump got out of order, was unable t"
j supply drinking Water in the stanchion
cups In the stable for about a week.
Milk production from his herd fell off
13,700 [founds, representing a loss of
over ?100. Another dairyman, whose
equipment did not include stanchion
cups, tried the experiment of giving
his cows an extra drink of water while j
they were In the barn. In five days j
liis cows were making six cans of milk j
daily instead of five. The extra la
bor wns well spent and show ed a hand
High producing rows In particular :
need n great deal of water. Expert- j
inents have shown that for each 100 j
pounds of milk produced some cows
will consume from twice to almost
three times this weight of water.
Filling Silo in Winter
Is Profitable Practice
The best way to get full value out
of com fodder and at the same time
utilize to the fullest extent the ca
pacity of a small silo Is to refill with
cut com fodder during winter as often
as the silo Is empty. The dairy de
partment of the Iowa State college j
has found that, while this kind of
silage Is not ns good feed ns real !
silage it Is so much' better than com- |
raon corn fodder that the expense and |
trouble of filling is paid for many
Itun the dry cornstalks through the j
silage cutter, blow It Into the silo j
along with a ton of water for each
ton of the cut fodder, anil pack it
some. A fermentation and softening
of blade and stalk occurs, and when
the feed comes out It Is eaten almost
ns completely as ordinary silage, oth
erwise stock will not eat half the dry
fodder, and the manure full of long
stalks Is hard to handle. Be sure to
use plenty of water. Remember that
the fodder Is dry ami the stalks lack '
the Juice that goes into the silo when
corn is cut greon.
To Secure Maximum Milk
Production Give Water
To secure the maximum milk pro
duction, cows must have plenty of
fresh water and salt, according to A.
C. Ragsdale, of the Missouri College
of Agriculture. Cows in milk require
ten to twelve gallons of water daily,
while high producing cows will drink
even mare. When cows are receiving
succulent feeds, they will naturally
drink less water than those on dry
