Wil son of Bangor Me and so con fident is he of success that he is prepared to put in a bid to the Government for a naval aeroplane as soon as the official specifica tipns are issued Mr Wilson has built several machines within the last dozen years He has also flown with them most of his experiments having been on the ice in winter over Eagle Lake near Bar Har bor and in summer along the shoreOn September 1st he received aeroIplane GovernmentMr latest aeroplane was built a few months ago and in one of his recent flights he covered seven miles and on an other occasion rose to a height of 700 feet without the aid of a motorOf course said Mr Wilson I can only rise in the air and remain there without a motor provided there is sufficient wind Therefore it is best to have a small motor to rise when the atmosphere is still but with any kind of wind the motor may be shut off and I can fly as easily without it against the wind as with it and control my machine perfectlyOne the chief features of movaIblecontrol of the operator anden ables him to tilt the moving wings to any desired angle during his flight These movable wings comprise the real novelty in the construction of the ma chine enabling the operator to get from the gravity force the proper surface friction at all times There are four of these wings two at either end the total length of the machine being I 36 feet The machine

Nov 1 Special v You cannot mention an article in your house or for your clothing or a thing used upon your farm which is not made today with the tenth part of the labor costI of forty years ago yet throngh the aid of the tariff are charging you at least onehalf more for these articles than they should says Franklin Pierce in a talk to the farmers of the country You have been feeding the world says he for the last thirty years by the irreparable loss of the virgin fertility of your soil while the manufacturers have been denying you the right to obtain the best value the world has to offer in exchange for your food supplies Not only this but when you go tomarket you have the privilege of paying the United States Steel Trust about onequarter more for a keg of wire nails than the same nails are sold adroad- You pay at the hardware store atjeast a quarter more for a coil of barbwire than the foreigner does for the same wire You not only pay a heavy duty on raw sugar but on ever hun dred pounds of sugar additionalI you pay 121 cents price for refining the sugar this last exaction going to the trust alone rand being more than the entire cost of refining You pay the Glass Trust and the Pottery Trust for every piece of glass and pottery you buy all the wayfrom 50 to 100 per cent more thanyou would pay but for the tariff In short you have to hoe your row alone without protection or privilege from the Government but you pay dear for the hoe you pay dearjfor the plow you pay dear for the paris green and for every chemical you need t There is not ah article oftKe clothing of your family which l does not payItribute to the trust There is scarcely an item in your grocery bill that does not include a tax The furnishings which make your house a home the windows that give you

Williams address on the subject We would see Jesus was well re ceived and was helpful Eld Pinker ton then gave a splendid address on the subject Where are we1 It was a history of the church from the day of Pentecost till now His sermon was discussed under four divisions or periods 1 The Abnormal period when the spirit dominated the church by super natual power At this age the New Testament was given or produced 2 The Conformation period in which the church was conformed to the ideas of the form government thfn prodo minating hence departing from the divine teaching and man became the head of the church In this age the church became very corrupt and was dominated by a corrupt priesthood and is known as the of sy Then followed the reformation age by Luther and others Then followed the Restoration period by the Campbells Stone and others Lead ing up to the present time he said the New Testament was the seed of the Kingdom and all churches are holding it forth as the only rule of life for man or churches Human creeds are losing their holds on the churches This splendid address was followed by a short talk by Z T Williams in which he showed the further develop ment of the Restorative period Horace Jeffries made a splendid talk on the subject The Union of the dis ciple with Christ He said this relation was the foundation of the Christian religion and of the union of Christians Then followed Dr U L Taylor with a paper on the duties and qualification of Elders and their relation to the church the1spreadingdinners that we have seen for a longtime and was enjoyed by

Contribution to Republican Campaign Fund Inspired by Hope of Future Favors Hearst Charge j Against Democratic Candidate Re jj futed by Public Records By WILLIS J ABBOT The national campaign is drawing to a close Only a few days remain dur ing which the discussion of the merits of the two candidates can be presented fto the people Of course I am a parti san and I believe that Mr Bryan is the man who sIiould be applauded and approved by the voters of the coun try Furthermore I believe that he will be electea To begin with four of the best in vestigators and the most nonpartisan ones with the Democratic national committee and with the newspapers of the United States have studied the labor situation of the country today They did it independently of each oth er There was no conference no pre concerted action And yet all four came within a very few figures of es timating the labor vote in exactly the same way John E Lathrop the Washington correspondent of several papers on the Pacific coast put it at 70 per cent for Bryan Colonel O O Stealey of the Louisville Ky Courier Journal made it 75 per cent for Bryan A A Allen the manager of the labor bureau of the Democratic national committee put it at 70 per cent for Bryan Ernest Walker of the Boston Herald estimated it at about G5 per cent It is apparent therefore that whether partisan or nonpartisan the observers of politics figure the labor vote for Bryan at from Co to 75 per cent If this estimate is correct Mr Bryan will be elected easily In past years Mr Bryan has had the labor crowds and the shouting but he has not had the vote It seems to be curious that labor people have always been willing tQ turn out with enthu siasm to his meetings but did not turn out enthusiastically to his support on election day This year there have been no great meetings So far as I know there have been no torchlight processions bands or red fire Per haps the change from the wild enthusiasm of 1S9G to the more cautious methods of 1908 may mean success The Trusts In the Campaign It was with interest that people ob served that Andrew Carnegie of the steel trust had contributed 20000 to the Republican campaign fund The story was not altogether official be cause the Republican national committee unlike the Democratic national committee did not promise to make public the contributions to its fund prior to election I dont know wheth er the statement was accurate or not Yet nobody can doubt that it had a certain amount of plausibility- Mr Carnegie has never failed to be n generous contributor to Republican campaign funds He is in fact if not In name the head of the steel trust and the steel trust does more business with the United States government than any other manufacturing organ ization in the country It builds our battleships and sheathes them with armor plate It furnishes thestructural steel for the great federal buildings that we are now erecting in Washington and in other cities of the Union Next to the banking interest it probably is closer to the national govern ment than any other corporation or Interest in the country And it is a curious fact that while other trusts have been attacked by the Roosevelt administration while Standard Oil has been assaulted while railroads have been denounced while the tobacco trust has suffered the steel trust has never received a word of criticism from the Theodore Roosevelt adminis tration It alone has gone free And BO when we hear of a 20000 contribution from Carnegie to the Republican campaign fund reported not in a Dem ocratic newspaper but lnva Republican paper we wonder about it And when we read further that the steel trust has contributed out of its own coffers 900000 to be used in the last weeks of the campaign by the Republican na tional committee we quit wondering- We recognize the fact that the Unit ed States government is the greatest Basset that this enormOus trust pos sesses We remember that the capitalization of this trust runs far up in the millions of dollars and that its chief customer is the navy department and we see very clearly that the ex penditure of a million dollars to keep that customerin line amounts to this Vtrust no more than the investment of VIew hundred dollars in advertising would count to an ordinary business institution on State street in Chicago or on Broadway in New York That Is why the steel trust is willing to con tribute lavishly to the Taft campaign fund If It can own the administra tion in future as It has owned it in the past it will get back multiplied by many factors the 900000 which it is alleged to have contributed this year Mr Bryan and Labor i The Hearst papers with characteristic malignancy have been printing an affidavit of a man unknown to fame and who today may not exlsti to the effect that Mr Bryan at one t1D ede n cribecl K delegation of workingmen Siiio came to see him on a matter in ffk i rSf JOlhL n I1r volying the tariff as public beggars TIle time was at th moment of the discussion of the Wilson tariff bill a bill which was intended to reduce the price of everything hat the average workingman had to buy whether itI was the clothes he wore on his back or the lumber he might need for the construction of his cottage Mr Hearst has always been exceedingly skillful in getting affidavits Sometimes it has been very difficult to discover the men who made the affidavits Most of them by a curious coincidence seemed to have died before the affidavits were made public But In this particular instance it does not seem worth while to question the affidavit but rather to put forth what Mr Bryan said on the floor of the house of representatives on this subject What he said there is a matter of public record and appears in the Congressional Record I quote part of itVMr Chairman the laboring men of tHis country the producers of our nations wealth do not ask for benevolence They have been paraded before you as people who live by the consent of somebody else they have been set before you as a class demanding constant help and assistance I protest against this slander upon the brawn and muscle upon the brain and sinew of this country I PROTEST AGAINST THEIR BEING PLACED BEFORE THE COUNTRY IN THE ATTITUDE OF BEGGARS The laboring men do not plead for mercy they do not ask for pity they do not beg for charity They simply demand justice that is all They ask for the right to labor where they will and to enjoy the fruits of their own toil With their skill and In telligence and surrounded by the boun ties and natural resources of a country but partially developed they do not doubt that they can hold their own Let them rise and stand upon their feet leave them free to achieve their own greatness and to retain a fair share of the wealth which they create give them equality before the law and they will ask for nothing more This seems a very complete answer to the charge which is made day after day in the Hearst newspapers to the effect that Mr Bryan charged work ingmen with being public beggars Really it did not seem necessary that any answer should be made to so foolish a charge The State of New York What about New York We have an absolutely united party there We have no issues which divide the lead ers We have a candidate for gov ernor Lewis Stuyvesant Chanler who is known throughout the state as a great vote getter and who is as loyal to the national ticket as any man by any possibility could be We have a chairman of the Democratic national committee taken from New York who has been devoting much of his atten tion to that state It would appear that all signs point to the success of the ticket in New York state and if it shall be successful there it will be suc cessful throughout the nation Such wretched fiascos as the forgery of the Cleveland letter have hurt the Republican party there more than any where else in the county And by the way how slow the Republican press and the Republican politicians are in acknowledging that that letter was a forgery When it was put out every Republican newspaper in the United States printed it In detail The Republican national committee has to my certain knowledge issued 500000 copies of this forged document and has not recalled any of them It is very well for the paper which first put lit forth to give the New York district attorney the evidence to prove the forgery three weeks before the election No doubt Mr Jerome will get very busy after election is over but in the meantime It Is proper and fair to say that the letter was never written by Grover Cleveland and while we cannot charge that its pub lication by Republican newspapers was done knowingly we can assert that they might at least give space to a proper denunciation of its falsity The Candidates Together Mr Bryan and Mr Taft met in Chicago at a thoroughly nonpartisan din ncr and spoke to an audience that was limited only by the size of the hall The occasion was the annual banquet of the Chicago Association of Commerce The subject of the two speech es was nonpOlitical and chiefly bearing upon a policy which Mr Roosevelt himself has been most earnest in press ing namely the conserving of our natural resources Nobody who knows either Taft or Bryan would question for a moment the thorough good fellowship which both showed as they sat within a few feet of each other at the speakers table Nobody who knows the two men will question fQr a moment the fact that when it came to speaking Mr Bryan roused his audI- tors to cheers and enthusiasm while Mr Taft left his hearers without any great excitement on their part However the meeting was a great one The arguments of both men while one was merely cold and argumentative and the other one oratorical carried weight It was not a political gather ing and Mr Bryan applauded the efforts of the president in behalf of deep waterways and of the conservation of our natural resources quite as heartily as did Mr Taft the presidents heir apparent When the Roosevelt admin Istratlon passes into history its greatest claim to honor and to the gratitude of the American people will come from this effort on the part of Theodore Roosevelt to save the natural resources of the country from extinction But there Is just one question that is worth asking He is trying to save the forests the waterways the water row erof the land but for whom he trying to save them The people or the few iciJfeffr jjjjjjjjjjjjj Your tf I Passing I ShadowS Ias no Right to Whip a Pupil William Carroll of New IJudge the past two terms the

the Hens Dont Lay Feeding for eggs is what most of us are doing or at least think we are doing But why it is that some who have good comfortable houses for their hens and take great pains in feeding and still dont get eggs until along in January or February The reason generally is from one or both of these two causes the hens are two fat or not of the laying kind Its a very easy matter with hens to get them in an over fat condition especially those that have not commenced to lay Pullets that are growing and developing can stand more feed even if they are apparently fully matured This fat condition does not seem to stop egg production as with old birds As layIrespect its the same with a hen After they once begin to lay they soon get down in normal condition but the trouble is to get them started after having once reached their overfat con ditionNow in regard to some hens not being of the laying kind I finda great many people who think that all hens of the same breed are alike that is if they are Leghorns and well cared for they will lay in the egg produc 6 ing season if they are Brahmas they wont except a few in the spring and then desire to set Others put their faith in almost exactly in opposite ways As far as the number of eggs are concerned laid by different breeds our records show that- there is not very much difference between either variety of Leg horns Plymouth Rocks Wyan dottes or Rhode Island Reds and Light Brahmas As I have stated above its a question of their be ing of the laying kind It de pends on whether they were bred to produce eggs or just to stand around and grow fat Its on the same principal with hens as with dairy cows only on a smaller scale and its being on a smaller scale is the main reason why more careful attention is not given to the breeding and se lection for this one purpose Not until poultrykeepers can seeal understandthat like be gets like with poultry the same inforlthet ff 1 tSSSVV r p will they be able to have hens that will reach a high point in egg production Yip c en t M Couch fS How Hogs Become Infected With Cholera It is wellknown that the germs of hog cholera find their way in to the bodies of swine with

Smile The muscles which are immedi ate agents in the production of expression are for the most part involuntary says Edwin Lewis Theiss in the November New Idea Womans Magazine They are therefore

suffered shocks through events In the Balkans and aow the course x f Bulgaria in de daring itself independent of Turkey and the action of AustriaHungary IIi annexing the provinces of Bosnia and Herzegovina which were declared by the treaty to be under Turkish suzerainty promise to leave the Berlin convention In a state of much mutila tion The action of Crete in throwing off Turkish authority still further threatens the dismemberment of the sultans empire The events have left a very unstable condition of things in the kingdom of Servia That king dom Is now hemmed in by unsympa thetic and unfriendly If not actually hostile states and the prospect of her arpansion In the only direction in which she could have hoped to expand has been destroyed by the action of AustriaHungary In annexing Bosnia IQNG PETEB OF SERVIA AND CROWN PRINCE GEORGE and Herzegovina Bosnia contains many Servians and was formerly ruled by the Servian monarchs There is also a large percentage of Serbs in the population of Her egol na The ancient kingdom of Servia which was overthrown by the Turks I toward the close of the fourteenth century iriuded a much larger do main than that of today and the Servians aspire to the increase of their national prestige until it approximates that of old The Crown Prince George who boldly champions these aspira lions Is more popular on this account than his father King Peter who came to the throne In 1903 after the murder of King Alexander and Queen Draga and who is more cautious in his policy than his son Turkish rule in Servia continued intermittently from the close of the fourteenth century until 1878 when the treaty of Berlin recognized Servias independence Crete is an island with a most inter esting history Since 1898 it has been an autonomous

Ex perience Will Be Pitted Against Youth and Determination The most remarkable game of check ers ever played in America will be played in Kansas City beginning Nov 2 For the first time in history a battle for the draughts championship of America will be waged in the west The purse will be 2000 and the win ner will be the undisputed ecker rightfuldlsputant of the world One of the contestants will be Charles Francis Barker of Boston present hold er of the title veteran of a thousand battles and author of numerous check er publications The other will be Jo seph A Drouillard of Kansas City un ill recently unheard of In the draughts world Age and experience will be pit ted against youth and determination The fray will be witnessed by checker experts of two continents Pique ambition a rainy Sunday and the gibes of a farmer boy indirectly led to this singular match says the Kan sas City Star Twentyfive years ago Drouillard then sixteen years old was a country schoolteacher living at Inde pendence Kan One Sunday he was marooned by rain in a farmhouse near his school A farmer boy suggested a game of draughts and the schoolmas ter accepted although unfamiliar with the game The country boy won easily Then he called in a younger brother who was likewise easily victorious Humph the older boy ejaculated It is funny a man can teach school who hasnt enough brains to play a game of checkers The gibe rankled Drouillard then and there determined upon revenge At the Independence courthouse there was a checkerboard that was an insti tution It was called the county board Democrats and Republicans Grand Army men and Johnnies from across the line Greenbackers and Pro hibitionists forgot their political grIev- ances over its tessellated surface Young Drouillard edged in at the sessions as opportunity offered In a few weeks he was the superior of all the checker devotees One day Hc drove to the hom of the farmer boy who had railed at him He was not long inducing his host to play The victory was signal Drouillard won every game- I have often thought that was the proudes moment of my life he said afterward in relating the incident- It was when he was a student at the State Normal school at Emporia that hemet his next great defeat William Rees a pipe organ player won1fifteen consecutive games from him one Sun day afternoon The young man hung his head in discouragement Cheer uPJ ehis victorious op playIerbooks and study- Drouillard then bought his first draughts book It was The American Checker Player edited by Charles F Barker the man he is to play for the championship in November His sub sequent thrashing of Rees was but an Incident He had resolved that one lay he would defeat the man who wrote that book From that time he never has been defeated in a match except once Tames Reed the American champion defeated him In an Informal setto In Informal contests he has met and defeated the experts ofmany western cities Five years ago he came to Kan sas City Since then he has won several formal matches In November 1906 he defeated Hugh MacKean of Salt Lake City for the western cham pionship by a score of five games to three twelve drawn Informally he defeated Barker when the champion toured the west two years ago He played a drawn sitting with James Moir a brilliant English player who once defeated Barker The contents of hundreds of checker books are impressed indelibly upon Drouillards memory Yet his reliance ts rather upon individual brilliancy than upon this store of memoranda Of powerful physique he can sit tran quilly for hours through the mot try lug mental strain Checkers is only a side Issue with Mr Drouillard He Is manager of a plumbing establishment owner of a strawberry farm and manager of a chess checkers and whist club N Charles Francis Barker his opponent was a checker expert when Drouillard was in his baby clothes At the age of fifteen Barker played successfully against the herd lad lie Scotlands famous expert then

American composer of operatic music is so much of a rarity that when one is discovered he becomes something of a wonder Frederick S Coif verse the Boston composer is known chiefly for his oratorios but he is FREDERICK S COJTEESE now devoting himself almost altogether to compositions for the operatic stage His one act opera The Pipe of Desire which will be produced at the Metropolitan Opera House New York next March is said to be the first opera by an American composer to be accorded such an honor Mr Converse is now in Europe and work bag on an opera in three acts which will have as its setting Mexican epi sodes and pioneer life in California before the outbreak of the Mexican war Text and music will both be from his pen and the work will be produced in this country some time next year In November Mr Con verses highly praised dramatic poem or oratorio entitled Job will be given at Hamburg with Mme S humann H inkin the leading female role The tenor willbe Schenke a Cincin nati singer who will make his debut at tlA s performance Among the best known of the composers productions are the Festival of Pan symphonic poem modeled on Keats Endymlon Night and Day two tone poems and the Mys tie Trumpeter a symphonic poem modeled on Whitmans prose poem and first played under the direction of DrI Carl Muck in Boston Mr Converse has a beautiful coun- trY home near Boston where he has a sumptuous music room a well chosen musical library and a delightful study He is devoted to outdoor life and sports especially tennis and hunting BUILT FOR FAST TIME The Long Island Motor Parkway and the Race For the Vanderbilt Cup Now that there is a suitable course for such a contest it is expected that the automobile race for the Vanderbilt cup occurring this year on Oct 24 will become an annual event The building of the Long Island motor parkway provides a course which Is Ideal for such competition The 1908 Vanderbilt circuit consists of twentyfive miles of splendidroadway part of it cement and the state roads VIEW OF THE LONG ISLAND MOTOR PARKWAY used in conjunction with this portion of the course have been thoroughly rolled and oiled Nine miles of the cement parkway have been completed and this part of the course Is twenty two feet wide at the narrowest point and is built on scientific lines so as to permit of the attainment of the great est possible spe d There are many picturesque symmetrical curves and eighteen cement and steel bridges crossing intersecting highways These bridges and curyes are so graded and banked that the racing cars may dash at them without any slackening of speed The track represents a marked advance In construction work of this character and a source of much danger has been eliminated by carrying the roadway over or under all gradecross Ings but one It is possible for the racing cars to pass easily at any part of the circuit and in many places three cars can travel abreast at speeds grand stand seating 5000 persons has been completed

MANUFACTURE Cut of 50 Per Cent From Cost of Wood Pulp Paper PredictedFive Grades Can Be MadeTurns Waste Into Revenue For Farmers Chemists of the bureau of forestry and the bureau of plant Industry ini Washington working in cooperation at last have solved the problem of how to turn the millions of tons ol cornstalks wasted every year In the United States Into a serviceable paper The facts were recently announced at the bureau of forestry and they show beyond doubt that the vast quan tity of material heretofore considered valueless and destroyed every year by farmers can be utilized thus saving much of the remaining wood reserve of the country and bringing about the manufacture of paper from an annual cropThe first practicable samples of this new paper have been manufactured in Washington by DrH S Bristol and his assistants at the new laboratory 1530 Pennsylvania avenue southeast They were shown at the bureau offices in F street and they consist of five grades in five colors One grade is a dark gray thick and heavy resembling parchment It is almost as tough as the historical sheepskin There Is a lighter gray of the same character two shades of yellow and one of white The latter are manufactured from the hard outside part of the stalk and the former from the interior or pith The yellow grades have much longer fiber resembling paper made from cot ton rags or linen soft to the touch pliable and appear to have been made from material entirely of different character from that used in the gray qualitiesThe used the soda cooked process which many manufacturers have discovered to be the best treat ment for the finer grades of wood pulp The cornstalk pulp can bi cooked in two or two and a half hours as against twelve to fourteen hours needed in treating wood The surprising discov ery also was made that in the present primitive steps in experimentation cornstalk paper can be made almost as cheaply as wood paper though the latter industry has been developing through fifty years The belief is expressed that when proper machinery is brought out and the farmers grow cornstalks in localities where it can be moved cheaply to the mills of the future the cost will be fully 50 per cent less than wood paper At the present time with wood at 8 a cord paper pulp can be manufac tured at 13 a ton With cornstalks at 5 a ton and adding the cost of bringing the stalks from nearby farms to the Washington laboratory pulp can be manufactured at 14 a ton These figures are regarded as prphetic of the future no hew product ever having been produced in the past at anywhere near the price reached subsequently with commercial development No special growth of corn Is needed said one of the chemists as our experiments have shown that any kind will do We used common Virginia and Maryland field corn That grown and destroyed in Illinois and Indiana Maine and Texas will do just as well The discovery is undoubtedly one of the most valuable of its kind made recently It will add millions of dollars to the pockets of farmers put a partial stop to forest destruction and furnish the country with an equally good but a much cheaper paper than that now in use PERILS OF BIG CANAL DIGGERS Steam Shovel at Panama Cut Through Bushel of Dynamite Diggers of the Panama canal got a new side light on the constant danger in their occupation a short time ago when a steam shovel at work on a rock section of canal No2 between Matachin and Gorgona cut through about a bushel of dynamite deeply Im bedded in the rock and dumped it into a waiting truck According to advices recently received at Washington from the isthmus the gulch was crowded with workmen at the time and only the defective condition of the old explosive prevented a fatal acciden The dynamite was evidently a relic of the French operations on the Isth mus It was In large sticks apparently In a perfect state of preservation though the trademark of a French manufacturing concern on them bore a date that was deciphered to be Nv 29 1887 After the scare subsided howVer the engineers in charge tried to explode the old dynamite without result Guards For Rockefellers New House John D Rockefeller took formal
