rather than helped so far as the wellfnre of the general public is concerned The railroads of the United States said an attorney of one of the largest of the lines today would muoh prefer if were possible to have freight and passenger rates fixed by federal enactment but I am convinced that before such a consummation could be brought about the constitution would first have to be amended and greater powers accorded to the government at Washington than now adhere to As things stand now the railroads are continually barrassed by having to conform to a different set of rates in every state through which they pass As carriers running between two points in any given state they are subject to the looal laws and as carriers of interstate commerce they are also subject to the interstate commerce commission In other words they are between the devil and the deep sea There iis some truth in this loom The cold storage egg trust In New York held up the price of their stale product to 3fJ

Marx Home womans real sphere however much conditions and neces sities have forced her into other and more extended ones No true woman indifferent to home and all that means to herself and others The

the home more important thing in married life than the man one marries and in no possible vase can the home satisty one If the husband fails Love for the man one marries will make home of an attic or

the pro reeds which will amount to about 2000 a year to be divided to the four Magisterial Districts the mag istrates of their respective districts to have full charge of the work and to sign all

were red as if she had been cry ing I handed her the form with a sympathetic look and she wrote this message Never let me hear from you againShe paid for the message and then asked in tremulous voice how soon it would go- uln half an hour maam I repliedShe went away but in ten minutes was back again Have you sent that message of mine she said No maam not yet Very well Give it back to me Iwant to changeita little said the youngwoman I returned it though that was against the rule and she altered it so that it read No one expects you to come back Thin she went away but this time she was hardly gone five minutesThat message of mineIt hasnt teen seat yet has it she asked No not yet1 Oh thank you Just let me have it again will you I handed her the message and the strange creature tore it up

Telephones Some time ago the telephone question was agitated The rural people are willing to have their line extended into Hickman and connect with their exchange at Cayce and will run a trunk line to the corner ot Tylers Oakwood Farm provided the people of Hickman are willing and will run the line from there to town and connect with a switchboard in Hickman the expenses to be met for maintaining the board by the people here as they maintain theirs A number of the merchants are willing to take telephones from this line and are anxious to do so The matter has been lagging and no one taking any interest for some time hence nothing has been done Now ifsomeone will take the matter up and push itwe can have connection with all these people in the eastern part of the county at practically no cost at all All that is lacking Iis a leader some one to take hold and go ask each one what they will do to help and we feel sure that in a very short time enough encouragement and contributions for preliminary work could be gotten to get the lines into town It is estimated that the line can bs run here and a switchboard put in operation for S200 After this is paid for there iis practically no expense attached to the malnUiinancc of the exchange We feel sure that there are enough merchants who would have these telephones installed immediately to pay the expense of installing a board Wont some one see if we cannot get this done soon There Iis no doubt but that such a connection would be beneficial to all the merchants as well as the farm ers I After the rural people installed their board they have no more expense except twenty five cents a month which iis to pay the operator and an additional five cents which goes into a sinking fund for emer I gency expense There is no reason I

universal expression regarding the Union Revival meet inr which was brought to a close in our iity Monday night The meeting had been in progress since Sunday March J and was conducted by Evangelist D Marvin Harris assisted by our local pastors and Mr F R Stover organizer and leakier of the greatest chorus choir ever assembled in Hickman It I would be hard to enumerate the benefits our people derived from this wonderful meeting The visible results were about three hundred conversions and a great tidal wave J of morality that will be long felt C long talked ofin this city and its vicinityFew men are so well adapted to meet Ihe requirements of this particular field as Rev Harris HeJs what might be termed a mans man striving mest especially to save the souls of men His Sunday night services were for men only and on many occasions for lank of room excluded the ladles from his audience In order to keep men within his hearing It is almost needless to say that he is a man of strong personal magnetism plain sensible thoroughly masculine His manner of speech bad the jingle of everyday ltfedeft in his art of lluslra lion and persuasion appealing to every age He has a way of whittling away OH his point with deliberation and detail that is unique tony the least and withal so plate and accurate that any child could see and comprehend He never mentioned this or that ehrtrehjustp- reached the old time religion Our previous acquaintance with him proves to us that he grows in both public and private esleejn to an exceptional degree and no doubt he is the best loved Evangelist that ever visited our city This was evinced by the ovation tendered him on the night of his farewell address at the Courthouse also at the depot where 200 of his friends bade him an affe tionate adieu as he left for his home in Dearborn Mo Mr Stover is a splendid fellow A little odd but the oddity rubbed off as you knew him better He is a faithful persistent worker and a musician to his finger tips His handling of the large chorus choir stamps him as a leader of experience and ability His vocal and cornet solos were a rare treat and especi ally essential and effective in revival work The Glory Song Reap ers and Harvest Field will be familiar to us for many moons He left Monday night amid the cheers and good wishes of friends for Illinois where he will visit his moth er Harris and Stover wilt likely go to Texas to hold their next meeting since they deferred an engagement there to come to Hickman Five hundred dollars were given these gentlemen for their services here and was made up by popular subscription They were not over paid It would be hard to over estimate the good they have been instrumental in accomplishing and everybody is thankful that Hickman had a real revival Our churches have been strengthenedmember ship increased the sleepers awak enedand good and bad more or less benefited While the meeting had been in progress for over four weeks the majority were reluctant to see its closeMay we all do our best to foster and promote the good work left m our hands Joe Coles son ten years old was accidentally killed near Water Valley Friday He was riding on

grain growers want profi table prices and prices of their own making for all thi 1907 crops they can get them How will this be accomplished ANSWER By pledging the crops before they are grown to the Amerl can Society of Equity to direct the marketing Then when harvested control them and market them only when the Society directs I mean tie them up out on the farms or In elevators and warehouses owned or controlled by the farmers Q How would this bring profitable prices A If this is done the market will soon be bare of supplies and the demand would quickly seek the supply and as farmers will have it all their price must be paid Q What must tanners do to be in a position to compel profitable prices for the 1907 crops A They ought to organize to the extent of a million and they probably will But while organising they must control their crops and this can be done through pledges as referred to and control of marketing instead of dumping Controlled marketing cannot come as long as each farmer markets independently so U is proposed to let the farmers society direct the marketing which will amount to Just the same as one farmer marketing for all But keep in mind that all IIs to be sold at profitable prtcos Q How can this be done A The Society will know the demand in all the markets and will then tell farmers when to market wheat or corn or oats or hay or any other crop and bow much and what railroad to ship it and to what market In this way the markt will never be oversupplied and prices will be maintained- Q But wont some firmer be given a preference and others not given an opportunity to market A No The Society will have dII will say he has 800 bushels or he might hae 100 bushels or 10000 bushels Oae illustration will do for all Now we know the farmers have all the wheat about one time July and August in each year bet the demand wants wheat for twelve months Therefore it is clear that no farmer ought to market more than onetenth or onetwelfth of his wheat each month if he wants to give his neighbors an equal chance on the markets with himself If he throws his 800 bushels or 10 000 bushels on the market in July or August he supplies the legitimate demand for the wheat of 10 or 12 farmers and if a great many farmers do this they simply force some speculators and middlemen who ought not to have any wheat except what they eat to store it and hold it until such a time as the farmers have no more to dumpwhen they feed it out to the demand But by the new plan each farmer will be allowed to market onetenth or onetwelfth of his crop each month the speculators cannot get hold of it and no farmer can take advantage of any other Q If the farmer needs money he cannot hold Will not this make the plan Ineffectual or Impractical A The Society will advance 50 per cent and perhaps more of the value of the crop while it still be thatRr r butrt it cannot be done by them Individ wally Q But many farmers have no place to put their grain so they can not hold it A They must provide storage I on the farms or at shipping stations or in market centres There has been enough storage room m the I past and will be in the future but It will be controlled by a different set of peopleQ do you mean A I mean that If farmers quit dumping the big and little elevators IN THE STUD At Oakwood Stock Farm Hickman Ky = ALFRED G 12452 Record 219 i This great horse

All grain of the same grade and of equal value will be bulked and each farmer will get a certificate for what he contributed Thea the monthly sales will be made and remittances sent to him until he is paid for all his certificate calls for Q By the new plan will farmers gain any thing over the old way In weights and grades A Weighing and grading will be done honestly because it will be under the snporvtsion of the farmers or their society There will be no profits or dividends to be deoiared except what each farmer gets in fair prices hence the incentive to cheat will be removed Q What rate of Interest will farmers pay on money advanced- A The very lowest rate paid by any institution that gives gilt edge security and borrows la immense theyhaveQ Why could not the farmers who have money to lend help other farmers who need to borrow whythisQ You spoke ota pledge What is It A It is an agreement between the farmer and the American Society of Equity whereby the person who signs it appoints

Dept of Stook Raisers and he will pledge the hogs and cattle the same way on a different blank to the selling committee of that department- Q But I dont see how this can be done if there is a surplus

necessarily On the stage virtue iis always triumphant over wrong but it Iis not always so in actual life vice doe not always come to grief as does tbeI vllllan in the book But there iis a large truth in these old ethical formulas Because iil remains a fact that other things being equal the good man has a better chance for happiness than the evil man It remains a fact that othrr things being equal the honest roan is more likely to be successful than the dishonest man Character always will be a factor In the success equation Goodness yoked to ability and tnergy wilt produce a strong char icier while ability and energy will produce a strong character while ability and energy yoked to a vicious personality runs the change ofweak ness Sometimes you see the wicked flourish like a green bay tree and you conclude that righteousness does not pay There could be no greater mistake Ignoble success after all is only successful failure Uprighteoiisncss and honesty do not 9f themselves ensure success
