Board of tri tees w rely bedded to dispense with the usual commencement exercises this year. Liis to our mind is a sensible departure. There is a Strong and growing sentiment among thinking people that is averse to the fire works and pyrotechnic al display that usually crowds the commencement business of Public schools. It is Well enough perhaps to permit those who have attained the distinction of College graduates to Harrangue their friends and neighbors with Learned nonsense about the Rise and fall of empires the glories of the american Republic state and Church Reform etc., and Infin Tum and nausea hot As for the world it is quite willing that the lads and lasses graduating from the Public schools shall be Fez cured from the mental worry and empty a of commencement. Let them Irdy awhile in the schools of experience and practical knowledge let before they Are compelled to regale the older Beada with moralists and theoretical abstractions. The old latin motto Quot and Astra Aapha Quot that usually greets the Eye at a a me cements is All very Well for the graduating class to Point to a the under which they shall but the world prefers to see them spell out the meaning of the motto with the years of a godly and useful life.

Ducks them but that Ian t neos Abaiy a he Doca All the talking and it a to broken we can it my understand about one word in six. Where these queer looking people Hail from is past finding out. The wheat Nii test. The King Drill company composed of some of our representative Busi Neia men have quietly pursued the even Tenor of their Way for the past six months making but Little a Dag in the world but steadily working toward the one purpose of developing the Plana and designs of a Drill that is destined to take front rank with the Best in the country. Early a the Spring or. Patterson the manager secured a contract from font amp Bradley manufacturing company of Indianapolis for 500 of the three Hoed one horse drills and the company have been manufacturing these drills As fast As possible at this time being on the last 100, the majority of the i being Leady now for delivery. The demand for a larger Drill being greater than for the smaller size the company have begun the manufacture of the five and seven Hoed Drill Only one of which machines have so far been manufactured. This one was Given a thorough test thursday on the farm of sex sheriff Davis. A number of the stockholders of the company and other gentlemen were present and it was the Universal opinion that the Drill was perfect in every respect. Liis larger size is a two horse machine and can be adjusted for a five Hoed Diu a Well As a seven Hoed one. It is known a a positive Force feed and can he changed to sow to 2. In Chela to the acre by a Tongue shaped casting Whilt covers or uncovers a need be the feed wheels so a to increase or diminish the Quantity and not by a she a la the usual custom in other drills. The test waa made under the worst poas Lafle circumstance a the ground being a heavy wheat and Joat slowed and not otherwise prepared. A plat of ground containing 7-10 of an acre waa mean ured off and 7-10 of a Bushel of wheat waa placed in the Hopper. The teat was to determine whether the amount of wheat would hold out or the Over the amount the machine was set to sow Viz one Bushel to the acre. After the ground waa gone Over the amount of wheat remaining in the Hopper would not exceed a pint showing conclusively the admirable adjustment of the machine. To test Ito strength the Drill was taken into the Road and stood the Strain in a remarkable manner thereby demonstrating Ita Utility in Fields that have become baked or otherwise hardened. Of course a practical teat cannot be made until 4he fall towing is through with and the wheat Baa Home up. If the teat then shows a we have no doubt it will that the Drill will do All that a claimed for it the manufacture of them will be Pua bed and the pro or machine will be put in to in Aure the turning out of a Large number next year. Wherever the Drill Baa been introduced it Baa sprang Tela immediate fever. What the tumm has been wanting for a Long Tanela n Drill to sow his wheat in .

Mob Fey night a shooting affray of it coned in Warbington township that in floor to Odd sneak lbs in Arnii thar Excelda anything Shif pm i pod in to county for a Lone time. A party of Young men Wera ont Hunt Tel in the afternoon and discovered a Bee tree on the form of mrs. Jacob Stop and agreed to go Home and Ratnam in the evening to secure the Sweet a Rae. At Balf Plato the party returned rain forced by a number of Othera among them several women. Without log time they began to saw the tree Down and when half through they Ware stopped by the sound of a revolver fired off near them. Supposing it waa one of thei own party rho bad fired the Ahot to startle them Tucy proceeded with the work of sawing the tree Down. They had hardly commenced agin when a Aeo Ond Ahot waa heard Thia time from a Ahot gun and Jamea h. Gamey a Aon of Bruce Carney announced the startling last that be had been Ahot the cowardly Ai again sneaked olt under cover of the dark Nara and escaped. Young Gamey a lad of sixteen years waa taken up from the ground and conveyed to Hia Home near by and or. J. H. Bultz waa sent for. An examination showed that sixteen Ahota had Paa aed into the left aide of the Young Man a number of them being in the Vida Ltd of a vital part of the body. An affidavit was filed yesterday morning for the arrest of Juank Sebou the up posed aaa Aasin and he waa Achord ogly arrested by detective Gallagher. He made no resistance and when questioned a to the shooting did not deny it. He waa brought to the City and Bis preliminary trial waa bad before a quire Hhall Rey. Some ten wine sea were examined for the prosecution the testimony of All of them being in Auba Tance a above unrated. The reputation of Justice Stop Baa not been the Best for some time. Be Iraq added Aaan to Citable entirely Tobohan it colty Between the two Emiliea of a a moment and in the examination of detective Gallagher he said that 8tou gave As his reason for shooting that if Carney and the others had wanted the bees they should have asked or them and not t try and take them away without asking. The d it sense offered no testimony and the i quire therefore bound Justice Etoll Over to appear before the circuit court and fixed his bail at 11,000. Upon this being objected to the bail was reduced to $700, which was immediately Given. The attempt at murder displays a reckless disregard for the life of a human being that seems strange in this enlightened ag6. That a company of neighbors should be shot at when their Only offence committed was sawing Down a tree for the purpose of getting some Honey reveals a depth of passion in the Assassin that should be curbed in a manner that will Render him powerless to perpetrate his vindictiveness on any other Community in which he May live Carney was reported better last evening and the or.
