that the new wholesale grocery recently organized in Fulton will put on a number of wagons to haul its freight from here to Fulton and d other hauling if called upon to do so It is thought that a

Hard Work nnd Privation of the Sturdy People Who Settledr the Western Country Thp unpleasant and often perilousa Journeys that the early settlers of tbrt west wore able to take to carry their produce to nfarket or to procure provi scans are described In Pioneers of the West Tho writer tells of one oeca glen when he and his 12yearold son wore going to mill There was a good deal of snow on the ground and thec woether was Intensely cold 12 i We were plodding along slowly ho hind the wagon up over the hills to FhInorth and on the divide says the author Tho snow was six or seven inches deflp and the track had not been broken fort was a road seldom traveled tlKjjipj being no settlors after we got up QW of the little valley until we came nefiS + er Oakdale away into the adjoining coun ty Of course we used to call thjjjniji roads but they were merely the gray and turf worn away where the horsjisj or oxen walked with a ridge betwe1PA two narrow black lines like a coupe of snakes stretching and winding acrt smiles of open prairie J 1 The snow made it very hard to walks and it was too cold to ride We tried to walk in the tracks of the oxen but that made it still harder We had gone but a few miles when our hands became so completely benumbed that all feeling left them We usually made our own mittens out of old cloth of which we would have two or three pairs sometimes tone over another But for all that It was the hardest thing possible sometimes to keep them from freezing As the morning wore away we began to feel hungry and I never forget the sad plight we were in We had along wjth us some dry sodabiscuits cut in two with a little butter spread between In a common flourbag They occupied but a small space of course so we tied the bag In a knot instead of tying it with a string We tried to untie it but could not do so with our mittens on and cold as it was we took them off but not with out some difficulty for our hands were nearly closed and neither of us seemed to have the least use of them We fumbled and fumbled for awhile but finding that we could not do It that way we held down the bag and pulled the knot apart with our teeth Raking out three or four of the biscuits which rattled ali must like so many Hint pebbles we held one up between our two fists and gnawed away at It in that way 4 There being no settlers for many miles there was no place hat we could put in and stay for a time and get thawed out as we used to say And that was the hardest part of It forone might manage to endure such a severej strain for an hour or so or for several i hours but when it had to be borne a I whole day and perhaps away into thd night it took considerable courage to keep up j CRIMINALS DEFENSES Offender Atrnlnxt the Law el Offer Xeiv Plea In Their zP OIUU i ii- if i The world said one of the most distinguished criminal lawyers at tile Chicago bar the other day relates the Tribune has moved in everything except defenses My meaning Is riot clear I mean to say that during Uie last hundred years or perhaps three or four hundred years the only class which has not progressed with the rest of the world is the criminal class They lave improved their appli antes I know Burglars tools are better made now than they used to be Criminals know their trade better but once let them fall into the hands of the police and they nre as helpless as they would have been had they been arrested during the nineteenth or even the eighteenth century The only three defenses that are used to any extent are those shopworn ones the alibi mistaken Identity and insanity Sit in any of the court rooms in the criminal court building on the North side and listen to the de fenses that are made Examine these cases where the desfend himself fie tries fo prove that he was not It the place where the crime was committed or he puts in the plea of insanity or ho tries to prove that the witnesses against him should not believe their own eyes and that they took somebody else for him Judges on the bench have told me they would be Btartled out of their composure if a professional criminal was to try any other defense The alibi is the favorite It is a saying in one part of town that a good alibi can be bought for 250 Perhaps it is its cheapness that recommends it but we lawyers are surprised that no new defenses are ever conceived Geographical Mosaic An Italian nobleman has

meeting of the state demo cratic executive committee will be held today and one of the most important questions to bec decided will be the manner in which delegates to the state con vention are to be chosen As a majority of the committee have heretofore been in favor of the precinct prmary it is reasonable to suppose that that method will be employed Having hereto fore been earnest advocates of the primary we dp not see how the committee can consistently decide upon any other method Any other would not only be in consistent but it w l1ldshow- that the committee feared the voice of the people in the matter of selecting delegates The American Society of Equi ty in Fulton county was success fully launched at a meeting held at the court house last Wednesday night Since that time vari 1ous meetings have been held in the county with the result that there have been several unions established throughout it each having a working membership As the objects of the society be come better knowny the member ship will grow and its work be come more effective There is no question but that the farmers by organization and an intelligent application of the forces at their command can accomplish won ders in the way of bettering their condition The chief recommen dation of the American Society of Equity seems to be that its sole object is to attend strictly to the business of the farmer It isI willing that other concerns fix the price of their products but demands the same right for the farmer He has never set the price upon his produce andal though the right of others to do so has always been conceded after they had become powerful enough to enforce itthe farmer has always been denied it The reason is apparent he has never been organized nor placed in a position where he could enforce a demand for a recognition of his rights Only by banding themselves I together as one man and insisting upon their tights fusing to give their produce to the world until it recognizes their right to set the price upon the product of their labor can hope for relief be entertained The American Society of Equity now numbers over 100000 members and its promoters believe that it will have a million before the close of the year It is a busi ness proposition to farmers and every farmer should investigate it When he does he it once becomes a member CURED ins MOTHER OK RHEUMATISM My mother has been

ibteftit ijf Hickman that the levee talked do much lest fall front Buclmnfj ana corner to a point beyond the Menii gel Box Factory will surely be built this summer Jnd fall In conversation with one who was one of the projects most earnest supporters we were informed that the agitation had reached point where something tangible was sure to result in the near future It 13 believed that the railroad company which was more or less responsible for the abandonment of the scheme Ilast fall bas revised its decision in the mat ter and is now thought to be heartily in favor of it The railroad company will raise its tracks from Bnchamms corner to a point where the MengeJ property begins The elevation will be sufficient to withstand any rise to which the river is liable to go and will effectually protect all property behind it Beginning at the Mengel property the levee will be continued past the plant and join with the old levee at a point below the Ellison property The lions shure of the expense will be borne by the railroad company ant the Meugel company but individual property holders will be asked to contribute a pro rata of the expense ac cording to their holdings It would be useless to enumerate the benefits to be derived from a good levee at this point as the people who live in the region subject to overflow or the owners of the property know better than we can tell them of the dangers and damages that are encountered every spring by the rising of the river To say that the value of the property would be increased 100 per cent is a conservative state meut and there are many who place the increase at 200 and 300 per centiThat portion of the town is rapidly becoming tilled up with new citizens who have come here to accept positions in one or the other of our many Indus tries and they have come to remain permanently with us They desire homes near their places of qniploynieut and would no doubt be willing to bear their share of the cost to make than portion of West Hickman subject to overflow safe from the encroachments of future visitations of high waterg They would buy property and build homes in West Hickmuu were there t any assurance that it would not be f washed away but without such assu rance they remain renters If West i IHickman is over to attain any growth in the near future a levee that williI afford protection wlil have to be built 1 With the building of the levee as now seems certain will be done there is nothing that will prevent that portion 1 of the town becoming a most desirable section Some of the prettiest sites in tho city are located there and woul need but little alteration to make them the most desirable There is but one objection to that part of the city and that is the frequent overflows to which it is at times subjected With this feature eliminated by the building of aj levee sufficiently strong there is every reason to believe that West Hickman will in time become the most densely populated portion of tho
