and myself considered It best to be married quietly in another town Ho has some very intimate friends in Evansville and so we de cided to go there Except In regard to my position In the college we deem ed ourselves of no particular Impor tance to the community and hence supposed it would be possi ble to keep the matter aI secret until the close of the school We were married by Rev Poole The train being late and It being neces sary to go to the court house to sign some papers we were married there In the presence of only the witnesses We had no Idea that we should as it were shake the

the Boston Herald he can defy the officers On an extreme corner of the old Fowles lot In the town of Holden is a plain board camp with six bunks which In past times has sheltered strange Inmates v In a wide sense the camp has been employed by a certain class of debtors who desired to avoid paying their legal dues As an Illustration of how the camp has been made available the case is cited where men from Prince Edward Island New Brunswick and Nova Scotia coming to Maine to find em ployment In the river sawmills near Bangor and wishing to be on hand for business as soon as the ice went out of the river have gone to this camp and waited In unknown obscurity until After April 1 for the sole purpose of evading payment of poll i taxes which In most Maine towns amount to 3 a year j unItIlannual

Thaw had gone back of the scenes to visit some of her stage friends Thaw greatly agltatedpaced up and down the floor Suddenly he turned and started across the hall Without looking to left or right he threaded his way among the tables brushing into several men and women He reached the table and leaned over its edge gazed steadily at Whltewho started to rise With a muttered im precationThaw drew an automatic re volver from his pocket and began fir ing Three shots were firedtwo tak ing effect White died instantly Thaw coolly broke the revolver and walked to the rear of the hall where he was placed under arrest The shooting oc curred just as one of the characters on the stage was singing And Now Let the Duel Go On Thaw claimed that White had ruined the life of Evelyn Nesbit prior to the marriage of the beautiful young Model to Thaw and subsequent to the marriageWhlte had annoyed her with his tentlons Thaw had entertained the most bitter feeling against White for several years dating back to the time the young man first fell In love with the beautiful model Thaw had noticed his wifes agitation upon the entrance of White Into the Cafe Martin at the dinner hour be fore the roof garden performance lie had asked his wife the cause and she sent him a note around the tablesay ing That dirty blackguard Is here Thaws smoldering rage burst Into flame a few hours later when he saw

apartments and studio were In the same structure Ho was the son of Richard Stanford White a wellknown critic journalist and essayist White though a husband and father was known for his association with women of doubtful reputationand it was gen erally understood that his attentions to Thaws wife wore the cause of the murder Following tho shooting many lurid stories were told of the alleged debauchery in which young girls figuredEvelyn Nesbit a beautiful young girl went to New York from her homo in Philadelphia and became an artists model She met Stanford Wh to through the artists for whom she posed and often visited White in his studio in the Madison Square Garden She was a mere childbut White was capti vated by her girlish charms He pro posed a stage career for her and she appeared In The Wild Rose and The Girl from Dixie It was at this time she met Thaw who pressed I his attentions upon the young actress against the angry protests of mem hers of the Thaw family Evelyn NesbIt went to Europe and entered a seminary in England Harry Thaw went to England and visited Evelyn Nesbit They returned to America and it was reported that they had been married in Europe Thaw

UNITED STATES rnniHCDLARGEST Leads The World in Produc tion of Tobacco Improved Methods Result in In crease of ValuesArea Almost Unlimited Tile growing Importance of the to bacco industry may be realized from a brief summary of the estimates of the value of the crop in the United States in the season of 1906 About 79699 acres of tobacco were grown producing an average yield of 8572 pounds to the acre or a total of 682 428530 pounds The average of the crop was ten cents per pound or a total of about 68232647 While it is almost impossible to comprehend the magnitude of the value of the manu factured products of tobacco a glance at the total figures may convey sonic idea of the development of this great and distinctive American industry In 1900 the total value of the manufac tured products of tobacco was 283 076546 In the manufacture 142177 people were employed who earned a total wage of 49852484 The United States now grows by far the largest quantity of tobacco produced by our country In the world While tobacco was grown by the first settlers in the colonies and was one of their principal cash crops the ex tensive development of the industry has been a matter of comparatively recent years The introduction of the weed into the different sections of the United Stateswlth their widely varying conditions of soil and climate has resulted in the production of types adapted to the soils and conditions of these sections as well us supplying a product for the variuos manufactures now demanded by the consumers of tobaccoImprovements In methods of culture curing and fermentation have resulted In tobacco having an increased value but the most important factor in the development has been the production of Improved varieties by seed selec tion and breeding The production of these improved varieties adapted to local soil and climatic conditions has made possible the rapid development of the Industry and enable the United States within ti comparatively short time to rank as the foremost tobacco producing country In the world The extent of the areas In the Unit ed States in which the conditions of soil and climate are suitable to tobac co culture is almost unllmitcdso that It seems possible that by giving attention to the production of varieties adapted to those conditions this coun try can continue to produce an In creasing large yield of valuable to baccos The production of new varieties of tobacco by hybridization and selection Is a most important phase of breeding The new hybrids of New England varieties with standard foreign grown varieties combining certain valuable characters of both parents are good Illustrations of the use of breeding in the improvement of the crop Tobacco growers In the suctions where these experiments have been carried on have generally adopted the improved methods of bagging carefully selected seed plants and separating the seed and they are using the Improved varieties of tobacco produced In the course of these Investigations During the coming year the Depart ment of Agriculture wll still further continue the experiments that It hits been making In Kentucky Virginia North Carolina and other tobacco

wages have increased more than any thing else Ask anyone who employs labor whether or not this fs true earsIat 8 to 12 per month and he will tell you that the same labor today costs him 18 to 20 Ask the manufacturer pf every article that goes to make up family necessiliesand he will till you that the wages of men who Irhor to turn out these articles from the raw material up have increased fifty per cent In ten years The tiny has passed in this country we hope when the demagogue can successfully appeal to the prejudice of the Intel Igent man of muscle because the ar ticle which his muscle creates has advanced in price carrying with it an advance in his wages greater than was ever paid In this country or any other country on the face of the globe THEY WILL REMEMBER The Tariff Is about the only thing L n which our Democratic friends can agreeand of course they cant exactly agree on that but they are will ing to pretend they can if It promises- to get them back Into office And Grover

Sourest Crab One of themost wonderful among the many Incomprehensible mysteries of earth Is tree growth Everything connected with life and growth ani mal and vegetable Is a mystery for that matter for all human knowledge falls to penetrate the hidden opera tions of nature or to tell the way and the how of life We see the two plants growing side by side fed from the same sources below and above lo far as we can determine yet one produces a beautiful roses and the oth er an illsmelling and ugly opposite One tree produces a delicious peach and another a sour crab yet so far as we can see the same element sustain both We see and realize the differ once but fall to understand it But there are some things about treo growth aside from leaves flowers or fruits that are as deep a mystery us is anything connected with animal life The acorn for examplels plant ed in the earth and in due time it sends down roots and sends up a tiny sprout Not interfered with it con tinues to grow and in the course of many years becomes a tree During this time the roots have been attract ing moisture and food from the earth and the trunk and limbs have been obtaining something from the air Each year a now layer of wood is added and so it continues till a great giant of the forest Ms the result The material for all this wood has been obtained somehow and from some source but how It is done is the mystery It may be one of many great trees growing almost against each other und each has managed to ab sorbs many cords of wood from hidden recesses of nature which man cannot fathom We can search the earth and the air with all our powers and with all the instruments and appliances at our command but we will fall to de tect the tree germ Nor Is this all or the greatest mystery Two trees grow up side by side fed from the same source yet the wood of one is the soft yellow poplar and the other hard white hickory one may be beautiful birds eye or curled maple and the other pitch pine or oak There Is another mystery that man cannot penetrate Somewhere or somehow the alchemy or chemistry or machinery of nature carries on its tireless and ceaseless work and the result is before us That is all man knows and probably all he will ever know on the subject All nature is a mystery and the growth of trees is not the least CAsronJA 8ViJ1Iot Cooperation Cooperation Is not Inspired by greed or selfishness On the con trary it is the inspiration of a more brotherly feeling along the lines of Do unto others as you would want to be done by It is true economy by those who are actuated by the need of selfpreservation which is the first law of nature- Cooperation regards the interests of others seeking mutual benefit by mutual efforts and mutual funds Cooperation inculcates and fosters thrift by studying how to eliminate unnecessary expenses Cooperation is legltlmrte moneymaking since A dollar saved Is a dollar earned- Cooperation unites many in a com mon cause and promotes the feeling of brotherliness and neighborliness Cooperation as is practiced by the Roachdalo Society of England is what everyone who desires true coopera tion is striving to follow When the producer the consumer and the wage worker join hands and cooperate and use their producing powers jointly and in harmony with their purchasing power the coopera tlon problem will have been settled The union farmer and the union mechanical can through their respective national organization make the union answer all purposes and meet every desire through the getting closer together of the producers and consumers under an equity agreement Already there is a gigantic plan in motion with this object in view the final details of which will be worked out In the very near future It Is an old saying There Is nothing new under the sun We might go fur ther and say there is nothing that common sense and reason dictate that Is impossible By an equity organization or agreement the money power under which we are now suffering will be eliminat ed It will be Impossible for men tg make millions over night by manipula don and If the signs of the times menIis not everything There is something in this life besides money Honor t f 1 c tl justice and equity are of far more value and while there are some things that money may and will buy yet there are some things aboVe a money consideration A man who has noth ing but money is poor and a pauper willilakesocial and industrial life this world will be a good place in which to live The American Society of Equity is doing what It can to secure equity for all Cures

Berry Tells Farmers How to Raise Less Tobacco and Earn More Money Brother farmers both in and out side of the A S of E let us keep the tobacco crop of 1907 down You must all realize the importance of this Xo power on earth can keep up the price if this is not done Men are tempted by the good prices we are now receiving to plant too much To do this is suicidal What can be grown that promises to pay as well as tobacco Will you who are conveniently situated listen to a word of advice from one who is fol lowing just what is advocated Let us try tomatoes I have grown five crops since 1S93 for the canning company What was your objection to the growing of tomatoes Mine was and 1 believe all had tho same difficulty that of getting crates promptly at all times I talked to my tenants in regard to growing toma toes and less tobacco before I went to the canning company I told them at the price paid 7 a ton that while it would not bring as much money gross per acre as one acre of good tobacco neither would the ex pense per acre be so great and in the end they would have as much money per acre and get it every month and if I could get a contract from the canning campany to furnish plenty of crates and not coAlSti tuy delay in unloading when I carried to matoes to the factory that I believed it would be a good idea to grow to matoes My tenants readily consent ed so after a favorable talk with Mr Ed Gucnther I signed for ten acres 1 honestly believe that with this kind of contract that it will pay us well to grow tomatoes Mr Guenthcr as sured me that he would not contract for more tomatoes than he could safely handle After I made the contract with Mr Guenthcr he asked mo if I would take the matter up with my brother farmers and as 1 was mak ing an effort to have the tobacco crop curtailed and as what I present to you I have done myself I readily consented Yours very truly HENRY S BERRY tTo Prevent tbem Falling In The Dutch peasant lives with can als all about him and reaches his cot Cage by way of a drawbridge Perhap its in the blood of a Dutch child not to fall into a canal At all eventsthe Dutch mother never appears to anti cipate such a possibility One can imagine the average English or Amer ican mother trying to bring up a family in a house surrounded by can als She never would have a minutes peace until the children were In bed But then the mere sight of a canal to the English jhlld suggests the delights of a sudden and unexpected bath An Englishman Inquired of a Dutch woman Does a Dutch child by any chance ever fall into a canal Yes she replied cases have been knownDont you do anything for it con tinued the questioner- Oh yessh answered we haul them out again But what I mean is explained the Englishman dont you do anything to prevent their falling in to save them from fallng in again Yes she answered we spank them CASTORIAFor The Kind You Have Always Bought Bears the Signature of I l- ne I T IIlittleattacks of Indigestion you have no
