HARTFORD OHIO COUNTY 37lEQUITY SOCIETYS POSITION DEFINED Where A S of E is Strong est no Violence Occurs President C M Barnett Ably Defends Society of Which he is the Head Tho following letter was sent to Hon James P Gregory President of the Louisville Law and Order League accompanied by request that he have it read at the mass meeting held in Louisville last Sunday It was not produced then and was given to the dally press Monday Hon James P Gregory President Law Order League Louisville Ky Dear SlrIn view ot the fact that your organization is to hold a mass meeting in the City tomorrow after noon which I am unable to attend and owing to the fact that the Ameri can Society of Equity of which I have the honor to be the National President has been made a target for abuse and mlsrepsentatlon because of recent lawlessness in our State I de sire to submit through you to the meeting a frank statement which should set our Society right with all lair minded persons This criticism of our Society arises11 from the fact that persons are misin formed as to the true situation or from a wilful attempt to discredit It and its purposes The American Society of Equity is organized and chartered under the laws of Indiana for charitable and educational purposes It has a mem bership in forty 40 states and ter ritories in the Union being especially strong in the great wheat section of the Northwest In Kentucky as will ibe seen from the official report of the National Secretary which was submit ted to the National union held in In dianapolis last October the membership the first of January this year In good standing was 18049 The highest membership ever enjoyed by the Society in the State as shown by the same report which is appended hereto and mode a part of this letter was 27791 There are 923 local unions each ac ting under a charter from the National Headquarters at Indianapolis The 18049 members are distributed over seventyone 71 counties in only thirty six 30 of which are strong enough to have a county organization or county union ns will be seen by fi gure immediately opposite the coun ties representing number of unions Fortyeight 48 counties in Kentucky havo no members at all These are in the mountains and in thut part of the State known as the Black Patch and occupied by the Planters Protective Association In thirtytwo coun ties the membership is less than one hundred In fourteen others it is less than three hundred In the counties covered by the Burley Association we havo nbQut 7000 members while the Burley Association claims over 30000 In the Planters Protective Association territory lying along the western borders of Kentucky and covering some territory in Tennessee we have no membership while that organization claims 40000 members In the stemming district our mem bership is about 3000 while the num ber of persons pooling in that locality will probably exceed 20000 The Green River Dltsrict has an Equity membership of about 6000 and probably not many more than that number pool their tobacco It will be seen that the four tobacco associations con tain about 100000 adherents Six time as many membership of thq Society of Equity Only one of these tobacco association the Green River acts through this Society It pas no con trol or connection with the others ex cept as individual members of locals may pool with them This Society has no control over the Boards of those societies and can hot say to the Bur icy people you shall or shall not raise a crop or when they shall sell their pooled tobacco These associations have their ownboards of control some of whom may be members of this Society I do not think President Lcbus Is a member Nor do I think Mr Hawkins who recently wrote the- cardvf11ch caused so much comment sa member of our Society Simply pooling a crop of tobacco with onegot signingInot givb membership yin the Society J 4 I of Equity although the dally papers the press dispatches and almost every one not a member has treatcr it as suchTo become a member one must eith er sign as a charter member or have his application passed on by a local union after paying a membership tee He must pay yearly dues or lose his membership These local unions act under a constitution and bylaws They meet usually in the country school houses or churches once a week or once a month The meetings are open to the public No

Jury Wednesday afternoon while on the creek near Black Rockers Bluff about four miles north east of Hartford Horace Smith William Lake and an other gentleman whose name was not learned found the body of a young man which has been identified as that of Estil St Clair floating in the creekThey at once notified Judge W B Taylor at Hartford and as soon as the notice was received Mr A D White and others left in Mr Whites gasoline launch to bring the body to Hartford They arrived with the body about four oclocy p m Wednes day and the following Jury W W Pirtle C P Keown Dr T D Ren frow M W Barnard W A Brown J T Hudson Ashford Mills Bob Da vis J K Alvy Wayne Ellis and Sam Ellis after examination of the body returned the following verdict We the Jury believe the unknown deceased came to his death by a blow on the mouth by some hard substance unknown to us The body was at once placed Inn coffin and carried to the almshouse cemetery and Interred There was nothing on the body except clothing and a pocketbook from which identi fication could be established and un til late In the evening after the body had been burled no one who had learn ed of the finding thereof had any idea who it was Finally Steve Grlgsbyaf ter close examination of the pocket book found on the body decided it wca the property of Estll St Clair and recalling his dress which consisted of a blue sweater Jumper overcoat and yellow overalls he was fully satisfied that it is that of young St Clair About six weeks ago young Mr Grigsby with a number of other men including young St Clair left here on sawlogs being run by Mr A J Wil liams to Evansville On reaching Calhoun young St Clair was not further needed and started on his return home before leaving young Grigsby he told him that he was coming back to Livermore and take the train there for Owensboro and from Ow ensboro he Intended coming back to his home at Dundee It is rumored how true we are un able to state that young St Clair on reaching Owensboro found some of Mr Joe Funks folks there with tobacco and came back with them to their home near Taffy and stayed all night leaving the next morning for his home at Dundee This was about the first of March How he received the blow that ended his llto if the theory of the coroners Jury Is correct- Is unexplained or if he was drowned that too is likewise unexplained After the partial identification by Mr 3rlgsby Mr St Chairs folks were notified at Dundee and they reported that the boy was still missing but on leaving home he had told them that he was going west from 3vSnsvillo and that they had suffered nd uneasiness about his failing to return They came to Hartford yesterday morning however and after hearing a full dlscriptlin of the- bolYand the manner of dress they were thoroughly convinced that it was their brohert whose body had been found in the river His body was dsllnterred late yes erday afternoon and three brothers who were present and several neighbors and friends who had known the young man all declared the body to- be that ot Estil St Clair The body was conveyed to his old homeat Dundee where interrment will be had today A deep mystery shroudS the

No Doubt Stealing a Ride On Through Freight and Fell Off Near McHenry last Sunday morning a colored man who had been to the house of a uelbhbor to sit up with sick folks while crossing the I C railroad track near the store of Brown Mercantile Co discovered the lifeless form of a man The colored fellow was too scared to Investlatge his find but went at once to secure aid Other parties were summoned and investigations showed the dead body to be that ofa young man or boy about sixteen years of age Physical examination showed that his neck was broken and his position when found led the people to believe that the boy had fallen from the train There was absolutely nothing on his person by which he could be Identified and his name learned Ho car ried a small purse in which were crumpled a few notes of college script used for money in transac tions at business schools Not a cent of money was In the purse On the finger of one hand he wore a brass ring with the setting gone Judge Taylor was at once notified and arrived on the scene about 10 oclock summoned a Jury and held an Inquest There was no evidence of a satisfactory character that in any manner showed how death result ed The only evidence that in any way deternnned the cause of death was given by two miners who came out of time mines about 12 oclock Sat urday night while the fast freight train was standing on the track at McHenry They stated that two boys who were walking along by the side of the train told them that one of their companiops had fallen off the train Just above there and told them if they saw him for them to tell him that they the boys had gone on South and for him to come on This was all the evidence and being hear say the Jury returned the following verdictWe the Jury find the unidentified boysupposed to be about 15 years old found in a ditch by the I C railroad camo to his death by un known cause This was signed by the members of the jury as follows Guy StateelrG A Ralph D W WakelandJ WBak er R T Ross and J M Martin After the Inquest the question of interment was discussed and it being the law that the county pay but 500 for coffin furnished by it it was sug gested that better burial casket be provided A public subscription was taken among those present and in Just a few minutes the kindhearted peo ple contributed 20 to supplement the 500 paid by the county At the suggestion of Judge Taylor the body was held until Monday morning and the fact of the boys death was telegraphed to Louisville and intervening pointsThis proved to be a good ideafor on Sunday night a man named John Calahan arrived on a train from Lou Isvllle and identified the body as that of his brother Charlie Calahan He said their parents are residents of Louisville at 1232 Zane street Mondays Louisville Times says of the unfortunate affair Word was received today bype ter Callahanan employe of the L and N railroad that the body of his four teenyearold son Charles Calaham ha been found at

Intonlon of the boys was to go to St Louis stopping at Central City City for a few days So the unfortunate tragedy is yet to some extent a mystery but it Is the general belief that the two miners

stopped work In Ohio Western Pennsylvania Missouri Iowa Kansas OklahomaAr kansas Texas and some in Indiana Illinois Michigan West Virginia and KentuckyThe contracts under which they were working expired at mid night Wednesday and except in Central Pensylvanla and in the In diana block coal district no new con tracts have been made nor have the miners and operators yet entered into district agreements providing for the operation of the mines after April 1 pending agreement This is a possibility in the Indiana bituminous coal district in Illinois Mlchglan and West Virginia The In diana bituminous Western Pennsyl vania and Illinois miners and opera tors are in joint sessions at Terre Haute Plttsburg and Springfield Technically the miners are out on strike but in reality they stopped work because the operators except in Indiana and Illinois show no real in tention of meeting and treating with them though no question of wage or principle is at stake- J Mitchell returned to

joint conference to endeavor to agree upon a wage scale J C Kolsen of the operators was selected as chair man The miners scale committee has not completed its work of formulating demandsBoth operators and miners believe that as soon as Vice President T L Lewis assumes the presidency of the United Mine Workers he will issue a call for an interstate conference to re habilitate the interstate agreement Upon the request of the Scale Committee of the Kentucky Miners Union the conference of the miners and oper ators adjourned last Friday afternoon until Tuesday April 7 in order to al low the members of the committee to return to their homes and present the proposed scale for shot firers to their constituents The sessions will recon vene at 9 oclock Tuesday April 7 Until two years ago the bituminous coal mining wage of the country was based upon the agreement reached In the central competlve field consist ing of Illinois Ohio Indiana and Western Pennsylvania and considered as a unit This system was broken two years ngowhen President Mitchell signed a scale with Plttsburg operators who agreed to pay the scale demanded after operators of other three States had refusedand the miners won their fglht In consequence opeartors signed the scale individually throughout the countrySince that time the miners have tried to get back the unit rule or Interstate agreement but operators of Western Pennsylvania Ohio and 1111 npls after negotiations lasting all the past winter have refused to meet In mlInersAs a last resort President Mitchell called the miners in national conven tionand district settlements were au thorized with the present wage scale as a minlmumand failing to agree by districts the miners were authorized to sign the present scale with opera tors individually 4

in achievements and In whom White House ambition Is altogether becoming and ii order It has said this before If not in so many words certainly iu substance and with Just the same sincerity and emphasis and is pleased to say It again But while looking upon Secretary Taft as a logical candidate for the Republican nomination The Washing ton Herald believes and has believed all along that circumstances have con trived to put him before the country in a most illogical and unfortunate position He was handicapped by en tering the campaign as a mans man the Presidents legatee when be should have stood squarely on his feet as William Howard Taft aRe publican worthy of the nomination and one asking odds of nobody of favors from any quarter This natural would have meant his retirement iron the Cabnlet a move which ho original ly contemplated andvhlch accord Ins to report ho at one time had full decided upon Had he followed such a course he would today In the opin ion of

Pres ident the Hartford Herald says The Herald does not care a continental whom the Republicans may nominate It may not be polite to say it but old er folks have always taught us not to meddlo with other peoples business If it Is so immaterial to the Herald whom Republicans name for President that It dont care n continental would It not do well to heed the teachings it should have Inculcated in the halcyon days of yoro NO USE READING TilE HERALD There Is no use reading the Herald Judging from its own declarations Its editors whose business it is supposed to be to keep posted on public mat ters dont know and are adverse toI learning any more about public fairs than people who are unfortunate ly or by their own choosing located remote front the post office where they are deprived of the dally press and not having access to telephones and other menus of public intercourse It has no ideas on public questions and no arguments to offer for or against a matter of public Importance These

recelv Ing knowledge or or giving information concerning a matter until its readers have first otherwise learned of It If by observation and study we chance to gain knowledge of pub lic importance should wrf not give currency to such knowledge The Her aids unctuous adverse criticism of us for doing so necessarily leads us to believe that It refrains from doing so It goes on record by its critl Ism of us against giving out Information Hence we conclude that our esteemed contemporary in pursuing the even tenor of its way keeps mum on questions of public concern until Its readers have all

Ghosts The natives of the Yukon river region bold a festival of tho dead every year shortly before Christmas and a greater festival at Intervals of several years At these seasons food drink and clothes are provided for the returning ghosts in the clubhouse of the village which is Illuminated for the occasion with oil lamps Every man or woman who wishes to honor a dead friend sets up a lamp on a stand in front of the place which the dead one used to occupy In the clubhouse These lamps filled with seal oil are kept burning day and night until the festival Is over They are believed to light the shades on their return to their old home and back ugaln to the land of the dead If any one falls to put up ti lamp In the clubhouse and to keep It burning thee shade whom be orshe desires to honor could not find Its way to the place and so would miss the feast When n per son has betn much disliked his ghost is sometimes purposely Ignored mid that Is deemed the severest punishment that could be inflicted upon him After the songs of Invitation to the dead have been sung the givers of the feast take a small portion of food from every dish and cast It down us tin offering to the shades Then each pries a little wa ter on the door so that It runs through the cracks In this way they Ilelleild- the spiritual essence of nil the food and water Is conveyed to the souls With songs and dances the feast comes to an end and the ghosts are dismissed to their own place The dancers dance not only In the clubhouse but also nt the graves and on the Ice if the dead met their deaths by drowning On the eve of the festival the nearest male relative goes to the grave and sum mons the ghost by planting there a small model of a seal spear or of a wooden dish according as the dead was a man or a woman The totems of the dead ore marked on these Imple ments The dead who have none to make offerings to them are believed to suffer great destitution hence the Es kimos fear to die without leaving be hind them some one who will sacrifice to their spirit and childless people generally adopt children lest theIr shades be forgotten at the festivals New York Tribune A QUEER TREE The Tumbo Is a Monstrosity of the African Desert The mature tumbo Is a tree with a trunk about two feet long shaped much like an inverted cone Almost all the trunk Is below the surface of the ground the visible part rarely exceed ing a few inches But the remarkable feature of the stem is that It Is often fourteen feet in circumference and be comes more or less a two lobed image The stem looks more like a great mass of the burned crust of a loaf of bread to quote Dr Welwltschs letter than the trunk of R tree The under ground portion becomes greatly elon gated and Its continuation is the top root of the plant This goes down several feet In its effort to get the few drops of water that the arid conditions of the country permit There are never more than two leaves after the seed leaves drop off and very curious leaves they are Starting from a groove on opposite sides of the depressed mass they stand straight out on both sides of the plant They are often six feet long and two feet wide and usually split Into ribbons that undulate over the ground In A way strikingly suggestive of the tentacles of an octopus With Its great ugly body and Its tentaclelike leaves It Is no wonder that It has been the most re markable plant novelty of the last cen tury The lowers are borne In scarlet cones on a cymose inflorescence com ing from the crown of the trunk Tumboa bainesil belongs to the joint fir family or gnetaceae and Is known only from Portuguese West Africa to Damaraland This is a region that seldom gets any rain and desert condi tions prevail almost completely except for the sea fogs The tumbo Is thus n desert plant par excellence and it Is only by a close approximation of these very arid conditions that we can cub tlvate ItNew York Botanic Garden Question of Nationality An

hsuurrr n WONDERFUL DREAD The Veracious Narrative of Its Making Baking and Sale flow did I happen to become a hotel clerk replied the man behind the desk Well It was this way I used to be a sailor That was where I learned about whales In fact I was second mate of the first iron ship that ever rounded the Horn bound from Doston to San Francisco loaded with flour yeast and salt to furnish grub to the California miners soon after the civil war We got around the Horn all right tfheu we ran into about the worst bit of weather ever brewed on the Pa cific Iron ships were an experiment then and we soon found ourselves In trouble The fresh water tanks sprang a leak and tho prater ran down over the cargo To make matters worse the flour barrels npd boxes of yeast broke loose and with the rollln7 of the ship we soon hail it till mixed up together In other words the whole ship below decks was full of iloiigli that tbd rolling of the chip kneaded Just as a regular breatlmuking machine does out In the kitchen here And It began to rise We fastened down the hatches at first but soon hud to take them off on the lower docks or the expanding dough would burst the ship And we put 01 all strain for San Francisco We crossed the equator like 0 nice horse and there we made our second great mistake The strain on the engines- caused them to break down so we had to go nt Jmlf speed and we were at la standstill for two whole days right there under a burning sun Tho storm we had run out of and the weather was clear and hot Whew Then we got under full steam again and plowed north to the Golden Gate with a deck band sitting on the safety valve But we were too late The atIflow to get It out of the ship was a questionThe owners who were tho captain and one of our passengers sold the ship Just as she arrived for only half what they had paid for her new In Boston But the new owner was a genius He put the hungry miners to work with picks and shovels cutting out the bread and sold it at the rate of 1 a shovelful It was the finest bread you or anyone else ever ate I was out of a job as second mate and when I saw what a profit there was In that bread I Just naturally went into tho feeding business myself and thats libw I became associated with the hotel business Front Show this gentleman to the cafe Portland Oregonian Mary Stuarts Curious Watches Among the watches owned by Mary Stuart was a coffin shaped watch in a case of crystal Probably the most remarkable ono in her collection was the one which was bequeathed to Mary Seaton her maid of honor It was in tbo form of a skull On the forehead of the skull was the symbol of death the scythe and the hourglass At the back of tho skull was Time and at the top of the head were the garden of Eden and the crucifixion The watch was opened by reversing the skull In side was a representation of the holy family surrounded by angels while the shepherds and their flocks were wor shiping the newborn Christ The works formed the brains while the dial plate was the palate She also possessed an other skull shaped watch but it is not known what became of It The Egg In MedIcine The white of an egg Is an antidote in cases of poisoning with strong acids or corrosive sublimate The poison will coagulate the albumen and if these poisons be in the system the white of an egg if swallowed quickly will com bine with the poison and protect the stomach An astringent poultice is made by causing it to coagulate with alum This is called alum curd and is used in certain diseases of the eye The yolk of the egg is sometimes used In jaundice ands

at a poultry market I saw a chicken butcher wearing a 1pair of those basket sleeve protectors t 1 stood and laughed like a fool 4 i said the fat man First tlmo Id seen tord1I you why When I was a tike I used S to look with wonder and awe upon a fellow who wore atpalr of basket thattf was t all right all right plus some more They had a kind of Jaunty air L about cm that I couldqt and cant dot I 4 fine but it was there and I revered f and reverenced em I made up my I ever grew up and got prlclmethe too for a pair of those basket sleeve protectors no matter what sort of work Id happen to tackle f Queer dlckenses boys eh Mem those patent pencil attachments marketmen used to have may 1ber em yethitched to their nprops I thought those were pretty nifty too and I used to secretly I banker to own one of em Made up my mind that I would own ono of em too when I got to be a man but some how I never seemed to want ono when I reached the shaving age Guess some of my ambitions as a boy were pretty crazy anyhow I was so jealous of the first boy I ever met that could spit through his teeth at a mark nnd hit it that I hated him That same boy pretty early in life got a job driving a delivery wagon for a grocery Well pretty soon after he got that job be was wearing a pair of those patent elastic sleeve supporters or holders or whatever youd call emthings with a clutch at either end that pulled the boysf4i and bow be used to flaunt em before t my eyes knew blamed well that those IHeelastic sleeve supporters looked finer to me than any Star of India or Victoria Cross could possibly look and he knew besides that because I had to go to school and wasnt earning any thing there wasnt a possible chance I on earth for mo to get a pair like em and so be just held em over me and made my life miserable Yet when I- ttt to the wage earning age I never seemed to care at all for a pair of pink clastic sleeve supporters Another boy that I hated had a maroon colored cardigan jacket That was before the day of sweaters This bated boy wore the cardigan jacket beneath his regular outer coat and so he didnt have to wear any overcoat J That I considered was a gorgeous blessingnot to have to wear an over coat to school I despised this boy for having it on me that way Anyhow his maroon colored cardigan jacket had a couple of pockets in front that he kept full of all kinds of junksome times he even carried mice to school in em Andthat made my indignation all the greater the fact that he had those two fine covered up pockets tobla cardigan jacket One great triumph did come to my tike life though and that was the fact that I was the first boy of my school to own a pair of copper toed boots Well I sprang the first pair as I say at my school and I guess I didnt break the hearts of all the other boys or npthinl Besides the copper toes these boots bad red tops with a silver star and crescent stamped on the red tops and that made tho blow all the more fright ful to the other lads that had to se- atie stalking around in those boots t After awhile though nearly all of the other yongsters showed up with cop per toed boots and thus took the wind out of my sails We never see boys wearing peaked caps any morenotice I dont mean these dinky little cloth caps with peaks to em but regular soldiers caps with i gl zed peaks First boy that turned up In our neighborhood with one of those things on made a sensation all right This same boy had got hold of ii carpenters pencil somewhere and hed stick that carpenters pencil un derneath his forage cap with the sharpened end projecting in a mighty blase way that certainly caused us to I f regard him as some pumpkins I was always crazy for a carpenters pencil I when I was a boy but I never got- hI ld 6f onenever did have much luck when I

juggler it Is neces sary to possess Infinite patience Some tricks require such long and continuous practice that unless a man possessed great patience and unlimited powers of perseverance bo would despair of ever being able to perform them says Paul CInquevalll In the St Louis Post Dis patch Take a trick for example like balancing a tall glass on tour straws placed on the forehead It looks easy enough but It took me years of practice before I could do It While I nm balancing the glass I also juggle with five hats at the same time I never as a matter of fact see the hats They are handed to me by my assistant and I thou set them goliig but the whole time my eyes are fixed on the straws upon which the glass Is balanced If I took my eyes from the straws for a hundredth part of a second their balance would be upset I know Instlnc tively where the bats are all the time and know exactly where each hat is when I put out my hand to catch it It took me close on eight years practice before I was able to balance two bjlllard balls on top of each other and then balance the two on a billiard cue I started practicing It an hour a day as a rule After a couple of years practice one night I woke up baying dreamed that I had performed It I got up rushed downstairs and began to practice with my cue and two billiard balls and at the first attempt I balanced them About Ore years later I performed the feat In public For tho cannon ball trick I first used a wooden ball weighing just ono pound I caught It on the wrong place and was knocked senseless but I kept on practicing until I found out how

the assertion without fear of successful contradiction that no band of night riders ever went out from one of these local unions The members of this Society strive In these meetings to Improve them selves In useful knowledgs and the principles Include many worthy objects besides the pooling of tobacco In fact full onethird of Its members In Kentucky are not producers of tobacco In the localities where this Socie ty Is strongest no outrages have been comuitted and where lawlessness has been most rampant It has no member ship at all It strives to teach its members to be lawabiding citizens and i Is in fact made up of the best clt zes of the State who are willing with its officers to aid In every way IioMlble to stop crime in every form which they abhor as much as any dOlprotostof this carnival of crime In view of the facts as set out herein If our members have engaged in any of these outrages the shall be eliminated from membership and punished to the full extent of the law If we can aid the authorities in their apprehension To tills end the National Board of Di rectors at Indianapolis in January au thorized mo to offer a reward of 100 in each case for members of this Society This reward is still standing Five counties in the Green River country Include more than onethird of the entire membership of the So ciety of the State They are Ohio 2055 Daviess 1225 Muhlen berg 1272 McLean 1007 Hancock COS Total C2fi7 In these five counties no lawlessness has been committed or charged grow ing out of the tobacco trouble Hun dreds of men In these counties have continued to raise and sell their tobacco indepedent of the Society and have been the victims of no harsh treatment They have taken advantage freely of the high prices brought about by this organization with no resultant harm except the loss of re spect of their neighbors It seems to me that this ought to show that the American Society of Equity instead of being given credit as an instigation to lawlessness should bo given as a power for good order in tho localities where it Is strong enough to make Itself felt In the County of Trigg from which the mob was said to have come which attacked Hopklnsville this Society has no membership In tho coun ty of Logan whero recent troubles hay occured we have no membership The accompanying report shows that we have only three members In the seventysevenThe first troubles which occured In Kentucky I believe were at Elkton in Todd County Tho accompanying report shows that we only have for tythree 43 members that County There has been trouble at Princeton in Caldwell County The accompanying report shows that wo have no member ship there There was trouble at Daw son Springs in Hopkins County The accompanying report shows our membership in that County to be seven tythree 73 We have a considerable membership In Trimble County only two hundred 9 and ninetythree 293 however the County I believe in which Hedges was recently killed However the two men who have been arrested for the murder are neither of them members ol this Society and I understand that none of those suspected of the crime are members of this Society How absurd in view of all this it Is for persons to charge this organi zation and hold It up to public scorn for lawlessness In Kentucky We ask that you assist us In setting this Society right before the public assuring you that you and your asso ciates and the law officers of the State shall at all times have the assistance of the officers and members of this Society In bringing to Justice perpetrators of crime in all the locali ties of tho State whether in city or country believing that the Society and it alone can work out the salvation and redemption of the farmers toIcommercial trade This Society will not disband It shall not die and while we invite prosecution and punishment of Its members who do wrong In any direction we shall defend it from misrepresentation and from those who would for selfish motives strangle It by heaping unmerited odium upon its membership by every honorable means in our power Its death would mean tho placing of the farmer in the helpless condition In which he found himself four or five years ago when unorganized he found the products of the farm depreciating in value from year to year when the country was enjoyed the greatest prosperity it had ever known with no seeming good cause for the low prices of some of his products He had to meet organization with organization To refuse to do so meant stravation for himself and children as well as depreciation of his lands The success of this organization plac ing the farmer in an indepedent condl tlon retaining his boys upon the farm means better condition for all of our people In every walk of life For at least the success and prosperity of the country absolutely depdnds upon the prosperity of the farmer The suc cess of this Society means for him a higher place in our social life and last but not least school books and an education for his children Sir you are at liberty and It Is my desire that you glvo this communica tion and the subJoined official re port of our membership the widest circulation possible I do this at my own instance but know that my views are fully shared by tho State officials and Board of Directors of the Society I am Sir very respectfully Society I am Sir- Very respectfully C M BARNETT

My father was twentyfour at the time of enlisting and as handsome a j young fellow as could be found any where His free colonial life had developed his strength and prowess to an ex traordinary degree no was a verlta bio American horse lad a cowboy HU j skill with gun and pistol was the envy of St Georges and Junot and hU muscular strength became a proterb to the army More than once hc aniusud bypasslngIarms and lifting his horse Ills legs I have soon him do It and I i recollect my childish amusement when I saw him carry two men standing I upon his bent knee and hop across the room with these two men on him I I paw him once in a rage take U branch of considerable toughness in both his I hands and break it between them by j turning one hand to the right and the other to tho left A few years later the gallant hussar was a brigadier general and perform ing feats of valor which earned him the title of the Horatlns Codes of the Tyrol Best of all we like the sons description of Horatlus storm I log of Mont Cents The climbers reached the plateau I Although it was a dark night the I long line of soldiers clothed In blue uniforms could have been perceived outlined against tho snow from the fort But my father had foreseen this contingency each man had a cotton cap and a shirt rolled up In his knap sack This was tho ordinary dress my father adopted at night when he hunted chamois i They reached tho foot of the palisades without having roused a single chal lenge The men began climbing till palisades as soon as they reached them but thanks to my fathers herculean strength he thought of a better nnd quieter way namely to take each I man by the seat of his trousers and the collar of his coat and throw him over the palisades The snow would break the fall and also deaden the noise Surprised out of their sleep and seeing the French soldiers in their midst without knowing how they had come there the Plcdmontcse hardly offered any resistance From My Memoirs by Alexandre Dumas Trans lated by E M Waller OLD TIME SURGERY The Barbarous Methods of the Six teenth Century Ambrolse Pare a barber surgeon of the sixteenth century tells in his notes how In 1537 he went to the long wars to get practice in surgery He invent ed some new processes particularly In the treatment of amputated limbs barbAI bleeding In his own words So soon i as the limb was removed the surgeons would use many cauteries to stop the How of blood a thing very horrible and cruel in the mere telling truly of six thus cruelly treated scarce two ever escaped and even these were long Ill and the wounds thus burned were slow to heal because the burning t caused such vehement pains that they fell Into fever convulsions and other I mortal accidents In most of them moreover when the scar fell off there came fresh bleeding which must again be stanched with the cauteries So that for many healing was Impossible arid they had an ulcer to the end of their lives which prevented them from having an artificial limb The idea of abolishing such cruelty by using the ligature occurred to Pare In one of his war journeys and his success went beyond his own expectations Ills other discovery was made within a few hours of his joining the army It was believed by the surgeons tho day that there was poison In a 10f wound and one of the accept authorities Insisted that they must cauterized with oil of elders scald Ing hot mixed with a little treacle The pain was Intolerable It happened that at his first treatment of gunshot wounds Fares oil ran short and be used instead a digestive made of the yolks of eggs oil of roses and turpen tine To his surprise he found next morning that the patients be had thus treated were in better condition than the others Then I resolved nevermore to burn thus
