Storm in the Countys History What is said by old citizens to have boon the heaviest rain for a line period ever Known in Breckenridge county fell on Tuesday night of last week The rainfall was as excessive in Han cock and Daviess counties and the damage dons in the three counties amounts to thousands of dollars Farmers especially have suffered as a result of the rain corn in the shook lIod miles of fencing being washed jfay and stOCK drowned Dozens of bridges were swept from their founda tions many small streams being out ot their banks Great damage resulted to dirt roads The headwater on some of the lowlands on Clover creek is re ported to have been higher after the rain than the backwater was at the timn of the great Hood of 1884 Peo pie living in some of the towns of the county were disposed lat Wednesday to believe that the accounts of the severity of the rainstorm and the damage therefrom were exaggerated but reports coming in during the week showed that only the half had been told The rain fell steadily in a downpour for hours accompanied by a violent wind Streets and roads soon ran with water to a depth in some places of several feet and travel was almost impossible Small streams were full in a few hours and overflowed towards mornrng Cattle horses sheen bridges fences water gaps chicken coops small ontbnudings and other things movable but seemingly able to withstand such a force were caught and carried away in the swift and rising waters which encroached to the very doors of the homes of farmers in the low sections r Bad Washouts on Railroad There were numerous washouts on the Fordsville branch of the Henderson Route the damage caused being the worst since the rpad was built One entire trestle 140 feet in length be tween Jolly Station and Glend ane was carried by the flood some distance below the place where it crossed the stream Five trestles between Rockvale and Fordsville were badly damaged and one mile ot track in three sec tions was washed out Koadmaster Hudson was out on the branch early Wednesday morning with the railroad crews and soon had all the damages repaired Qlendeane Mans Narrow Escape Bezel ESKridge who lives at Glendeane and his eighteenmonths 01la child had a narrow escape froth being drowned Mr Askridges house is built on the bank of Daniels creek and on low land During the rain Tuesday night the stream overflowed and moved the house from its foundation and for a distance of snout fifty or sixty feet Mrs Esk ridge ascended to the second story where she was rescued later but Mr tLEskiidge left the house holding the jjIby in his arms thinking it a better way to escape the danger of the flood When he stepped out of his front door he expected to find the water about waist deep ant the posi t changAJtand instead he plunged in over his head Clinging to his child ne was r carried down the stream lodging I against a sycamore tree which he gripped with one arm holding his pro alone burden witn the other He heldl f on in this manner for an hour it is said calling lustily for help Neigh bors heard his cries and one young llt1iiirvolunteering swam out into the turonlent stream with a rope about hin and rescued the man and child from their perilous position Both were in their underclothing which was nearly torn from their bodies The child was so badly chilled that its life was only saved after hard workDally Papers Exaggerated Stories Two Louisville papers contained exaggerated stories last week or the harrowing experience of Mrs John J McHenry and son of Louisville and her guest Miss Mamie Hunt of Richmond Va who were en route to Falls of Rough to spend Thanksgiving with Col Lafe Green and daughter Miss Jennie Green and who spent the night of the rain in a train on the FordsvjUe branch between Jolly Station and Glendeane Tno story as Jpld by one ot tho Louisville papers 1- 8jt part as follows IThe rain fell in such torrents that before going many miles water he gan to flow over the tracks and rose so high that the engineer refused to proceed further with the train After coming to a stop the water rose to the floor ot the coaohes and to a depth of several inches in the train The occupants of the car were forced to draw their feet onto the seats and ninny perched themselves on the backs of seats In thIS condi tion they remained for hours until the water began tw recede About 4 oclock in the morning the rain ceased and an hour oftel ward the train started forward only to be stopped again a short distance ahead by a high trestle being wished but The train then backed into Irv ington after stopping every tew hundred yards to clear away logs and debris which had washed upon the trackJ J Tilford the conductor walk ed through four miles of mud and water to Glendeane the nearest tele graph station only to find the wires downTho truth of the harrowing experience is this The engineer came to a washout where the water was over the track and promptly backed to an elevated part of the roaa bed until the water had receded The only water that ever got in the coach where Mrs McHenry and MillS Hunt were blew under tue door Conductor Tilford offered to conduct Miss Hunt and Mrs McHenry tea private boarding house near the lailioad but they preferred remaining aboard toe train all night to going out in the rain Clover Creek Unusual Sight Clover creek especially near and at the mouth presented a sight Wednes day morning snch as is seldom wit nessed on inland waters The volume of the water emptied into it by its tributaries was so great that it could not begin to discnarge Iit and it fairly seethed throwing up spray to a height of perhaps seven and night feet and cutting A much deeper and wider channel The current had the swiftness of a mountain stream and the effect riesented was that of a minia ture Niagara many persons who saw the thrilling sight declaring that they had never seen its equal in a stream with a slight natural fall Worst Ever Known In City The rain storm was the worst ever known m this city Cellars were flood ed and the water rose to a deptn of several inches in a number of houses and surrounded many others A road wagon in the Wrist End was moved some aistance by the water washing against the wheels 2 The river rose several feet shortly following the rain and is still rising though it is reported from above that cold weather will prevent a flood The heavy rain was expected owing to the unusually high temperature preceding it DAMAGE IN COUNTY IIMMENSE Farmers Loss 50000Repalrs on Roads and Bridges Will Cost 3000 to 5000Flscal

damage done to the county is immense It is es timated that it will cost from 3000 to 15000 to repair the bridges and roads and 50000 Is not too high a figure to place on the damages to the farmers

Knllowlim Thin CnllliiK Are Mnlnifil I cry Year How They Lcurn the UuiiKeroiiM Trade A skillful strip riggerI never strikes Come good times 01 bud the supply of volunteers for this most desperate of occupations never falls below the tIc maud The ship riggers are to be seen along the water fronts of all great ports perched high in air like great spiders busied with their strange architecture They work in all sorts of weather both by lily and night No other sailing demands such a combim thou of skill told courage and the aWl My to work quickly in the face often of appalling danger There Is no exaggeration in the state ment that the rigging of ships esp dully thoSe requiring repairs afte long service is the most dangerous of occupations According to reliable statistics fully 20 per cent of all regularly employed ship riggers are maimed often very seriously every year The proportion of riggers seriously Injured in n life time is about 00 per cent The greater unrulier of accidents are caused by falls from aloft or by being struck hy falling objects such as blocks or spars or pieces of heavy rigging fallln from great heights Serious knife wounds come next In order The records of such accidents ITA evidenced by the books of any hospital In a great seaport are long and grewsome A rigger must bo n steeple climber a sailor n tight rope walker somethhij of n trapeze artist and an experienced shipbuilder rolled into one He must be literally a jack of all trades and II master at least of several of theme The Ironworker who balances himself on steel girders on n great bridge or skyscraper the trapeze artist in the circus or the steeplejack actually works In fill less danger of his life- Time danger to the latter class of workers is more familiar nnd has been time more widely advertised But a ship rigger must keep n perfectly cool hind In the face of dangers which night stagger a Nelson or a Dewey Your steeplejack may be perfectly self possessed at high altitudes but then he works with the assurance that his support at least is stable The struc tural Iron worker feels that ho can de pond upon the solidity of the steel1 beasts beneath him while tho most daring trapeze performer never ven tures on ropes which have not been thoroughly tested nnd rarely without a net beneath him But the rigger knows no such safety in his support The fact that his services are required aloft means of course that the complicated rigging is faulty The masts or spars may be rotten to the breaking point the ropes may part I at any Instant It Is just this unmoor tainty which renders the riggers life extra hazardous He must mount with the agility of a cat and work quickly In a network of rigging which may part at nay instant It would IHI dif ferent If he could even choose his own time and weather but the rush insep arable from such worst allows him no choice Haiti or snow or Ice greatly Increases the danger by rendering the Spurs or ropes treacherous to the hand and foot Then again when time work goes forward by night the blinding rays of the searchlight to a mUll dell cately balanced on icy ropes make it extremelyI dltlicult to judge distances and positions The most experienced sailor no matter note much at home he may feel In he rigging in mummy weather will often balk at the work of the rigger The iallor is at least reasonably sure of the trngth of his trigging If his ship be lea worthy Then again If a sailor slips or falls the rolling of his ship laI likely to throw him overboard into the water where his fall Is partly broken It Is different with the rigger who if he falls must come down on the bare wards The ship rigger must besides often work with the masts and spars practically denuded of their rigging without tilt safety which a full rigged ship lends to an experienced sailor The wages of the skilled ship rigger may seem high in comparison with those of the ordinary sailor or even a ships officer Considering the tied dents which every rigger meets In his tinily life the work IIs of course one for which no amount of money can really compensate A first class rigger commonly receives 4 for a lays work For all extra time the rate Is double Much of the work Is of course done under the usual pressure of time When on accident occurs to a incr liant ship for example which is due perhaps with a perishable cargo at some distant part every hour economized in making repairs counts against icrlom loss A great part of the work ot rigging is therefore done at night tile gangs of riggers relieving one another continuously until the ship la again ready for sea The ship rigger whose experience or skill does not enable him to do the most important work earns from 3- to 350 n day with the same agreement for overtime During the busy season In the great seaport towns it Is not uncommon for the riggers to work continuously for from fourteen- to sixteen hours a day As a result it Is not unusual for them to receive for months at a time as much as 50 a weekIn nearly all great seaport towns notably in New York city the riggers are strongly organized Their union Is probably the oldest of its kind in the world Not only have they played an important part throughout the history- of American shipping lint their guild was an effective one In London when the ships wtre rigged which sailed flgalust the Spanish armada The laws wLlch govern the riggers In America today had their origin in this ancient guild A revolution has occurred mean while in the shipping of the world lJy the introduction of steam and the use of iron and steel lu shipbuilding but the dangers of the ship riggers life like the demand fur bU services have somehow remained unchanged So you tummy hear the riggers talk today much the sumo iw they did two centurio since of the benefit societies which support thorn when they He injured ot the premiums of the lodges which bury them and care for their families when they mire killed A curious thing about the accidents to riggers as mummy one on the water front of our seaports who knows will tell you Is that time mot dangerous ac cidents spectacularly are seldom very serious Any old salt or Idler who haunts the docks will be found full of marvelous stories of such hairbreadth escaped In Salt Francisco a sailor re cently was dropped nearly a hundred feel by the parting of a rotten spar As ho fell apparently to certain death he struck a rope which caused him to turn two complete somersaults in his descent and lauded him on a pile of loose stills which considerably broke his fall While every one stood aghast he picked himself up nimbly shook himself and proceeded to cumuli bade to his original position Another rlggor In falling from u height which threatened Instant death struck against a slack rope by great good luck which broke his fall and swung him against a mast Instinc tively he clutched Its smooth sides null slid quite unhurt to the deck below There Is a rigger in New York today i well Iknown

ANCIENT ENTERTAINMENT Dccrlptlon of One Given by Xena pilot Army of Greeks In his Anabasis Xenophou describes an entertainment given by his army ot Greeks on the shores of the Black sea during the retreat trout Persia after the battle of Cunaxa about twenty three centuries ago Two Thraclan first rose up says the soldier historian and danced with their arms to the sound of n flute They capered very high ami with great agility then made use of their swords At lust ono of them struck the other lu such a manner that every one thought he hat killed him but the stroke was given with art The other having despoiled him of ids arms went out singing a song of triumph Then other Thraclau carried off the man as If he had beer dead though Indeed he was not hurt After this some Lilians and plague sinus rose up rued danced In their arms what they called the carpaean dunce the manner of which Is as follows One of them having laid down his arms sows nIl drives a yoke of oxen look lug often behind him as If he were afraid Then n robber approaches whom the other perceiving he catches up his murals and advancing tights with him in defense of his oxen All this these men performed In time to the lute At last the robber binds the plowman and carries him off with the oxen Sometimes the plowman over conies the robber and fastening him to the oxen ties his hands behind Flan ruin so drives him away After this Mysus1 entered with n buckler In each hand fwd danced some times as If he had been engaged with two adversaries then used his bucklers as if engaged with only oue Some times ho whirled round then threw himself head foremost and fell on his feet without parting with his bucklers This made a line sight Last of all he danced the Persian dance striking his bucklers against each other and in dancing fell on his knees then sprung up again nnd III till this he kept time to the flute lIe was succeeded by some Mantlneans and other Arcadians who belug dressed In the handsomest armor they could provide rose up and advanced In time to n flute that played a martial lilt They sung the paean and danced In the same manner that Is practiced in solemn processions- On this one of the Arcadians led forth a woman dancer dressed hand somely and carrying a light buckler She danced the Pyrrhic dance with great ability on which there was great applause That caused the Paphlago lans who were present to ask whether the woman also charged with the troops Then the Greeks said that it was the women who drove King Ar taxerxes out of the camp This was tho end of that nights entertainment

is given you here you will be content and can say 1 have livedTown and Country THE RdlLROdD JAD OUR OPPORTUNITIES The Hawesville Elevator Company has been doing a land office business in corn this fall Mr Bently the manager says they have handledabout 150000 bushels and could have handled more but for the car famine He says he had to turn down an order for 20000 bushels because he could not get the cars for shipment of the grain He says it is not so much a question of rates as it is a question of get ting cars This elevator company is doing a great work for that sec tion It is a great convenience for the farmers from West Point tc Henderson as it gives them an early market for their corn also for their wheat Corn started off this season at 10 cents and has hovered around that price all the fall When a farmer can gather bis corn and put it on the track at this price it is equal to 50 cents or more ir the spring He saves one handling and the loss in weight is a hit thingBefore Mr Bently put up his elevator farmers never thought of selling their corn from their field They had to crib it and take the risk of loosing it by an overflow They were practically at the mercy of the buyers on the river who set the price to suit themselves Now they have a ready market and an early market and competition be sides All this has been brought about by the railroad There is nc avenue in any community for good for its upbuilding for its de velopment like a railroad Its a matter of fifty or sixty thousanc dollars dropped into that community and right at u time it is needed Its all due to the railroad and to men withlcapital who follow the iron horse seeking investments And this is just the beginning of our development We have vast gold mines right along the Henderson Route in our corn fields our wheat fields our tobacco fields orchards minerals and clays iif wo only get down to our work and get out of them what there is in them for us Instead of our corn field yielding us on the button lands forty bushels per acre they can be made to yield by the right kind of planting and cultivating eighty bushels per acre We would rather have a good corn field on the banks of the Ohio than a goldmine in Colorado We dont appreciate our advantages and our opportunities IInstead of a farmer setting his crop at forty bushels let him set it at eighty The soil iis there ready to do its putt if given the right kind of treatment and care MH tloiix IAIMIOK in speaking of his corn crop of 100 acres at SkiHnmii this year said the yield per acre was about fifty bushels In examinng his field he said he found about sixty per cent of a stand This was wholly due he thought to faulty seed Here is where wi lose out in our corn crope dont pay enough attention to thc selection of our seed corn There is a way to overcome this by adopting scientific und uptodate methods is selecting our corn for seed The commissioner of agriculture at Frankfort will send any farmer in pamphlet that tells him just how to overcome all this waste in tin planting We advise every farmer to write for one of these pamph lets and study it this winter and adopt the methods suggested in selec ting his seed lath for next sprinj It cost Mr tTarboe just as much to cultivate his forty per cent of missing and barren hills as it did tG cultivate his sixty per cent of good hills The consequence is Mr Jarboe isi about JUuO bushels short on account of hadseed1 Mr Jarboe is one of our best farmers He has made a success of the bus mess and his crops are above the average yield and we only cite his case to show what can be done with our corn fields when the right methods are adopted- Notwitlitaulding the millions of dollars that the people of the United States spend in free education the Census Bureau informs us that one person out of every ten who is ten years of age in the United States iis illiterate that is to say he is unable to write in English or in any other language- It makes little difference as regards the practical outcome whether this illiteracy is in the native born white population or in the foreign born or in the negro race All make part of the American political and social system It is quite evident that the agencies of common education must be extended so as to exterminate illiteracy altogether for no free government can live where ignorance exists But illiteracy does not cover the whole evil It is not enough to teach mon and women how to read and write they must be taught also the fundamentals of morality and while our public school system has accomplished wonderful results in imparting common school educa tion yet it is woefully deficient in the matter of ethical teachinglt is far more important that the people should be taught not to steal and to lie than it is that they should be taught how to read and to write Sometime or other the country will wake up to the fact that some thing is lacking in our system of popular education How that lack is to be supplied however presents one of the most difficult problems that over called for solution Wall Street Journal DiH Knox former Representative from Hancock in speaking of the

CONNECTING NEYJERSEY AND NEY YORK Completion of Borings Under Hudson RiverOne of Greatest of Engineer Ing Feats After half a century of speculation on the practicability of tunneling the Hudson river from New Jersey to tho island of Manhattan it is now possi ble to walk dryshod from Jersey to New York The twin bores have been completed that is they have been cut through and cased in though of course some finishing touches are yet to be put upon them It was a few days ago that in the presence of the engi neers the directors and a dozen re porters W G Oakman president of the Hudson Companies split an old brick bulkhead with a hydraulic jack and completed the first Manhattan Jersey tunnel system There was a sixinch gap in the wall A gang of ground hogs rammed the breach a little wider and the party crawled through into New York city o The old wall that was cut through was seven feet thick It is tho relic of a former failure to tunnel the Hudson Twentythree years ago the engineers of the old Hudson Company after cutting a considerable distance under the river abandoned tho enter prise and walled in the unfinished work with this brick bulkhead Two tubetunnels run parallel be neath the Hudson river the work of boring them being done under direc tion of the New York and New Jer sey Railroad Company but this com pany entrusted the actual performance of the work to tho Hudson Companies The present tube has been two years in the course of construction Tho tubes will cost when completed about 13000000 and the entire work will cost about 30000000 Fifteen Feet In Diameter The tubes are 5700 feet long 15 feet in diameter and are intended for ono track each with a sidewalk for workmen Two tubes have been start ed on the New Jersey shore to run under the river to Cortlandt and Church streets These tubes will bo 1 16 feet in diameter The tubes just completed will connect on the New Jersey shore with tho Pennsylvania and the Lackawanna terminals In Manhattan ono branch will connect With the subway under Fourth avenue at Astor Place Another branch will run to Sixth avenue and Thirty third street A trip through the entire length of the tunnel from the subway to Hoboken will cost only five cents About six hundred men have been em ployed in the tunnels Cars will be running through these tubetunnels in eighteen months The safety of transportation in the tunnel needs no demonstration for trains will run in a steel tube tho strength of which to resist pressure has been carefully worked out Being laid from fifteen to fifty feet below the river bed it cannot be affected by the ac tion of tidewater The tube is a steel lined hole in the earth and except for j UNCONVENTIONAL It was Thomas Carlyle who said that all genius was akin to savagery Sarah Bernhardt exemplifies this in the buodolr of her chateau In Paris Mme Bernhardt Is a perfect barbarian In her defiance of nil the convention alities regarding color schemes Her sleeping room Is hung in royal purple decorated with peacock plumes Over her Louis XVI bed is a canopy made of unspun silk taken directly from the silkworm cocoon A great splash of crimson satin In the form of a shield adorns the center The walls are hung In old tapestries and In the Interstices collisions duo to operating blunders the risk of travel ought to be nil Many Tunnels to be Dug It having been proved practicable to tunnel beneath the Hudson river the Pennsylvania Railroad undertak ing will be pushed rapidly and it maybe expected that in course of time ev ery trunk lino coming into Jersey City will have its own tunnel The East river piercings do not present much of a problem In less than five years trains ought to be running from Phil adelphia to Boston with no water to be crossed It is believed that within ten years electric trains will make the trip from Philadelphia to New York in one hour NO TURKEY STUFFING Christmas Dinner Incomplete With out This 01 dFashioned Addition The latest and most obnoxious crank in th gastronomic line is that deluded epicure who asserts that Christmas turkey must be served without stuffing lIe says It is anI anomaly a thing without reason an insult to the completeness of the bird He even declares that it de tracts from the sweet flavor and dell cate aroma of the king of fowls Thus he thrusts himself into the pub U arena a most unwelcome butter in striving to accomplish the down fall of an historic institution lIe 1 1I not a true American He has never tasted stuffing as mother made it the real Simonpure article spooned out of the deep recesses of the royal bird in great crumbly masses that fill the room with rich aroma and the heart of man woman and child with Joy unconfined s- It is the soul of the turkey is stuff- Ing With tho bird Itself one is al ways bothered about what part he will have whether white meat or dark whether a ving a thigh or a drumstick whether the wishbone the liver or the part that went over the fence ast1 but for the stuffing American sentiment is universal Tho only question is How much does one dare to eat And then that en trancing cagey odor from the mysterious yarbs that enter into the mak lngus sweet as the summer breezes over new mown hayas delicate as the fragrance of orange blossoms on a wedding day And perchance In addition ve shall catch the sublime suggestion of an onion wafted into our quivering nostrils and recalling some dear departed maternal spirit who ministered to our boyish wants In days of yore Turkey straight without stuffing Not while there is breath to sound a protest It Is the mission of civiliza tion to mix with naked nature the toothsome miscellany of tradition to blend the work of nature and man to sweeten with our best endeavor the plain blessings of an allwise Providence Thats what gave us stuffing and until the heart of man grows cold until the race loses its teeth and lives on pills and tablets and predigested pap its multitudes will insist on turkey as mother served- It Down with theories Give us stuffing or take the turkey back THE SARAH I of the hangings are row after row of tiny monkey skulls the eye sockets of which are illumined with electric

DOLLARS Is a Ravishing Pink and Crimson Tea One to Two Hundred thousand DollarsExpectedlrufltOtherHugeFigures A Washington gardener has origi nated what Is believed by expert flor ists to be the finest rose ever grown the Queen Beatrice It is a tea of a peculiar shade of pink with a touch in the bud of light crimson Its par tlcular merit lies probably in the fact that none of the beauty of its coloring is destroyed either in natural or artificial light Added to this it has a fragrance equal to if not superior toI that of the American Beauty The rose grows on straight and sturdy stems from two to three feet long its parents are the two wellknown va f THE NEW QUEEN I ricHes Liberty and Madam Chatenay the former one of the most popular crimson varieties but uncertain in the production of perfect blooms Queen Beatrice has none of the faults of its parents and combines all of their good qualities it is resistant to insect and mildew attacks and capable of forcing on the hothouse bench Grown atGardiner Hubbard Mansion It was originated by Peter Blssett byFloristBlssett Is the head gardener of Mrs Gardiner Hubbard the widow of the late Gardiner Hubbard at one time rnphlcSocietyAlexander Graham Bell the Inventor of the telephone Tile new rose was produced at her beautiful suburban residence Twin Oaks Just outside of capitalThe countryhaverose for a year and have made various tempting offers for it but it remained for Florist Kramer to offer 30000 and finally secure tho beauty Such a fabulous sum for a rose seems insignificant however when it is remembered that but a few years ago Thomas Lawson of Frenzied Fi nance fame paid 30000 for a mere carnation while the greater amount of 125000 was expended for the Fiancee carnation It is hinted that Mr Lawson cleaned up over 100000 out of the Lawson pink and the buy easilydoubled Origin of the American Beauty And yet the American Beauty of whom every flower lover Is fond has a very very sad history A number of years ago a Washington gardener who made only a specialty of garden roses received from abroad a ship ment of plants among which was a mongrel This with out of door cul ture produced very largo and fragrant blooms It attracted the attention of Thomas Fields a Washington florist Nothing was known by him of tho forcing qualities of this rose In the greenhouse but as he rathor liked Its color and general appearance one afternoon while her husband was ab sent ho purchased the single plant from Mrs Ready for five dollars Ready when he rotured and was told of tho sale believed that his wife had asked too much for the flower Fields experimented with the plant and found thntlt exceeded oven his fondest hopes Ho named It the Am Honn Beauty and probably cleared 25000 on this one deal Todny Ready Is still a gardener doing odd Jobs for peo pie around town spading up gardens supplying rich earth and planting shrubs Mr Kramer Is n Washington florist with large experience in the flower line many new and interesting nov elties having originated in his green houses Among the popular garden roses which he produced are the Climbing Meteor a climbing varie ty with largo red blooms Champion of the World Robert E Lee F H Kramer and many other sorts which have been sold to catalogue houses and named by them He has just originated the Climbing Ameri can Beauty which will probably be listed by flowersellers next spring He recently exhibited in Washington the F H Kramer carnationa deep pink sortwhich many wellknown florists have declared to be the equal of either the Lawson or Fiancee He states that no plants of the readyfor1007 during which time a large sum of money will be expended in the erection of hothouses and the cultiva ofthousandsestimate BEATRICE ROSE or 200000 will be made from this flower Attempted Grafting Various artifices have been tried by clever but unscrupulous people to ob tain specimens of the Queen Beat rice rose many coming into the Kramer establishment where a huge bouquet of the blooms was on exhibi tion offering to purchase at largo prices a single flower for a bouton niere Others have gone so far as to order elaborate funeral designs with the proviso that nothing but this par ticular kind of rose be used These were only dodges to obtain the healthy wood for slipping and growing for the best time to make rose cuttings is either just before or immediately after the plant comes into bloom One Washington florist who origi nated the Ivory rosoa handsome white flower and a sport of Golden Gatewas unwise enough to sell cut flowers thereby enabling the purcha sers to propagate the variety cheaply The Washington Florists Club recently awarded the new Queen Beatrice rose a certificate of merit the I first of the kind ever given by the j club The new flower is so striking and beautiful that every member of the club consented to the awardII Comfort on Uncle SamsIAmple Breast Cupid is one of the best recruitingI officers

In the Middle Westnot the Middle West perhaps as It Is generally known but the central section of tho west ern half of the United StatesIn the desert country He started his suc cessful career by taking up a govern ment claim under the desertland act He was in the cattle country the cow country aud he made his strike incattleHis went further north still in the desert area close to the Cana dian lineIn the sheep country lIe took up a government homestead claim and commuted It The third man went Into the far northwest the Oregon country of Lewis and Clarkeand he took up a government timber claim He located in a land where lumbering was done And these three men became great cattle and sheep and timber kings and incidentally landlords and their operations while widely different were singularly similar They filed on their government claims and at the earliest possible moment each man proved up and sold out for cash to theylearnedtoward land grabbing themselves The desert entryman was supposed under the law to live at least three years on his 320 acres and to expend during that period 100 in construct ing irrigation ditches and other improvements and make it his home This was whut was promised for the throughCongressman spent a day with a team making a fake irrigation reservoir and then another day running n couple of fur rows around the land making oath that this constituted an irrigations stm for its reclamation Then within six months he proved up made the required payments to the government and secured a patent to his land The homestead entryman who un der the law must reside continuously on his claim erected a slab oneroom period justfivehis home making Then he too made oath of what he had not done offered the required payments to the govern ment and secured title to his land The timber entryman went into the finest timber section of the United States the dense forests of the far northwest and under the timber and stone not selected 100 acres of laud the timber standing upon which was worth 75 an acre and swearing that he wanted it for his own personal use purchased It from the government at the fixed price of 250 an acre and Immediately disposed of it So that within fourteen months these three menu had secured from Uncle Sam an aggregate of one square mile of government land for their own benefit and use as homes and sold it out to MURPHY Maio Timhr Tnnll those who were buying hundreds of such claims and then went looking for further speculation Typical Cases of Fraud These cases are cited simply because are typical of thousands and of thousands of instances which could related of the great west where the government still owns half a billion acres of land although another half billion have passed Into under the various loose and really fraudu lent land laws with which the statute jook is defiled No nation has ever been so reckless or has been so mercilessly robbed of its public land resources us has the United States Since the early history of the republic laud in vast tracts has been granted to individuals and cor porations and in spite of the public attention which of late years has been directed to the matter the absorption goes on at an alarming rate It seems difficult for the swan who has lived in the west for years to realize that there is any good reason why ho should not debauch find buy out hun dreds of others who are willing to sell their birthright as American citizens thus enabling him to acquire a do main which would have been princely in the days of feudalism The three men above cited count

each of the States or larger political divisions would reqii months or arduous travel To obtain a full comprehension of nil the physical coi dltlons would require years of research This fact Is emphasized because It appears In the general discussion of publicland I nnestlons by hundreds or thousands of In J dlviduals that as a rule each man sees only certain phases of n proun of nroblems n from his own view point brings argument to bear for or against any One cuuciu Specific cases are cited to show that cer tain land laws should bu runvalca oc re vised or should be allowed to remain and

the conditions of the remaining pubic lands Most of these laws and the de partmentat practices which have grown up under them were rained to suit the lands f the humid region It Is evident that the-

these rules there Is much elementary and essen ial knowledge of which cognizance can note taken The changes we recommend In the land laws are required not only because some of I = == the present laws are wholly unsuited to ex tltlng conditions but also In part be cause some of these laws as originally drawn contemplated certain conditions or practices which have been greatlY modIfied by various rulings and decis- Ions In short precedents established and which now have practically the force of law have so completely modified the apparent object of the original statute that the statute and the prevailing condi tlnns appear to be wholly unconnected The effect of laws passed to promote settlement Is now not Infrequently to prevent or retard It TO ATTRACT VILD DUCKS TO YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

too there is a hidebound conception of how a cer tale food should be and iioming can break the public of this fancy The Department of Agriculture a year or so ago found that the English peo pie would

over to the man by his side You see that little strip of woods just ahead of usY inquired the sup posed lunatic in reply Thats where I am going to kill you so you might as well begin making

tSwtermined to sell his life as dearly as possible and was just Retting ready to grapple with the madman when the latter pointed his forefinger and crook ad thumb at Mr Pierce and said Boob So great was the feeling of relief which swept over Mr Pieice that he grasped the strangers band and shook it cordially It suddenly dawned upon him that hiS companion was a bairn lees simpleton instead of a

the frightful portrayal of the supposed pangs of death or of the sufferings which some believe the soul must endure after dissolution It 1U rare Indeed that the last days or hours of life are passed

rails BREAD BEST OF FOODI gnld to lie More Valuable Than Mont na ii Ylelder or Kiiericy According to Dr Robert Hutchinson of the London hospital who supplied evidence regarding food supply to a royal commission trend is the most important of all the roinniou foods of the people As a ylelder of energy a pound of bread IIs more valuable than a pound of uncut Its chief deficiency however Is Its poverty In nitrogenous matter and It therefore has to be Supplemented with articles that remedy this defect Life could be sustained for long periods on a diet of bread with a few beaus or a little cheese- A man in time of scarcity of general food could subsist upon two pounds of bread a day says Dr HutchInson lIe would begin to suffer from lack of energy If he got less but could go consid erably below the two pounds for a bare subsistence In times of great urgency such as garrisons undergo in time of siege Under these conditions It Is disease that carries men off rather than starvationOne point on which Dr Ilutchilmsou Insists ia the value of ordi nary white bread Rye he states is lower In nutritive value than wheat The next most important article of diet as a source of energy is sugar In commenting on this Dr HutchInson makes an Interesting statement on the duties of food The unfortunate thing about sugar Js that it contains no nitrogenous mat ter at all says the expert Bread does contain some Without nitrogen ous matter one cannot get on at all It is absolutely necessary There are two sorts of food The two things that food does are first it keeps the body In repair aud second It supplies it with energy Some foods can supply it with energy but cannot do anything to keep it in repair Bread can do both but it is better as a source I of energy than as a repairer Among nitrogenous foods instanced as good adjuncts in supplying tho de tects of bread are beans cheeso and fish The white of an egg is stated to bo a very essential element of food If no meat is available at any time bread sugar ahd eggs are nil that is wanted for a very respectable support for the body Under conditions of compara tive scarcity If a child is given Its slice of bread with molasses we are doing as well as we can for tho child Another illustration of the marvelous value of bread as a food is given by Dr HutchInson One pound of beef he states is only about half as valua ble as a source of energy as an equal quantity of cheese while a given weight of bread yields a third more en ergy than its equivalent in beef The amount of food required by an ordinary person is somewhat remarka ble when comparison is made with an Cured of Obstinate La Grippe Henry Distin the inventor and maker of band instruments for tho Henry Dlstln Mfg Co at Williomsport Pa Is probably the
