For moro than a year the cotton market has been steadily advancing, and toward the end of last month price. had reached a level which, since the Civil War, bad only been equaled when Sully was at the height of his fame, March contracts selling at 16.17e and May at lC.lCc But at the culminating point of Wednesday's decline, 'March contracts sold at 14.60c and May at 14.73c, a loss from the high record of from $7.31 to $3.40 per bale, most all of which has occurred during the last week. The declines from the closing prices of Tuesday night amounted to more than $3.50 per bale. There docs not appear to have been any change in general trade conditions to warrant the almost unprecedented slump in price?, and In contrast to Sully year, no financial difficulties have been precipitated. Possibly the selling movement was originally due to an effort to obtain proSts on long lines owing to the approach of the new planting season and expectations of greatly increased area, while the absence of any speculative short interest left the market with very little support It was reported that apinncrs were buying more freely in the South, and late advices from the leading Southern spot markets show no material weakness.

Illinois Central Rsfussd Injunction Prohibiting Enforcement of Commission's Order. Washington The supreme eouit ol tho tinted mate Monday decided the case of the I'nited States vs. the .Illinois Central and other railroad compsnlei doing business In the llllnoiscnal mining district in faor of the government. Tin case involved the right of .the" Inter state Commerce Commission to', direct thn ili.triliiiilnn nf rtra In (lift Intfri-t- t of indtiwndent coal companies. nd the power of the Interstate Commerce Com- tnlnsrou 'was upheld la a sweeping- decision, which was delivered by Justice While,' In effect the court held that the fuel esnf of other companies were tu be counted in the quota of each mine. The decision is regarded by the gov- eminent as most imiurtant, in tliat It upholds the powers of the commission, and it is expected to have an important bexring upon the rate cases still to 1 heard by the court. In announcing the decision of the court, Justice White considered two ob jections to the delegation of power to the commission, the first being that no such delegation had been made by the interstate commerce law in the matter of the distribution of company fuel cars as a means of prohibiting unjust prefer ences and undue discrimination, and the second that even if such power should be delegated, the order enjoined by Ui court below was beyond the authority conferred by the law.

Other Amendment. Urged. In accord with other declarations of tha rteptibllian platform of 100S, the prraldent further rerommenda thnt the Intrratate commerra law lie amended ao aa to provide, that no railroad company auhject tn tha commerce act ahall, directly or Indirectly, acquire any Interests of any kind In enpltnl atork, or purchaar or lease any railroad, or any other corporation which cnmtietra with It reapectlng business to which lha Interslats commerce, art applies, that a law be mart, rd providing "that no railroad corporation autilrrt to tho Interstate commerce act shall hereafter for any purpose connected with or relating to any part of Ita business goeerned by said ai t.

Would Prevent Wrong Practices. The president continues. "I Imlleva these suggested In and amendments to the Interstate commerce art would make It a complete ami measure fur securing ressonsble-es- s of rates and fairness of practices In the operation uf Interstate railroad lines, without undue preferrnra to any Indlddu-a- l or claaa over any others. "lly my direction tha attorney general has drafted a bill to carry out three rerommeitdatlnna, which will be furnished upon request to tha appropriate committee Mheneter It may ba dralred. ' In addition to tha foregoing amend-ment- a of the Interstate commerce law, the Interatata commerce commission ahould be given the power, after a hearing, to determine upon tha uniform nt three IkpoUances - auch as sill attpa, laddera, roof hand bolda, running boards and hand brakes on freight cars engaged In Interatata commerce uaed by tha trainman In the operation of trains, the defects and lack of uniformity tn which are apt to produce accidents and Injuries to railway trainman. The wonderful reforms effected In the number of switchmen and trainmen Injured by coupling antdents, due to tha enforced Introduction of safety couplers, la a demonstration of what can be dune If ral road a are compelled to adept proper aafely appliances. opera-tlon'The question has arisen In theemploy- a of the Interatata commerce ers' liability art, aa to whether ault ran be brought against tha employer company in any place other than that of Ita home offlre. The rlgM to bring the suit under thla act ahould be aa easy of enforcement as the right of a private person not In tha rompanya employ to aue on an ordinary claim, and proceas In each ault ahould be sufficiently served It upon tha station agent of the company upon whom service la authorised la made, to bond the company In ordinary actions arising under state laws. Illlls for both the foregoing purposes havs been considered by the houae of representatives and have been passed, and are now the Interstate commerce committee nf the senate I earnestly urge that they be enacted Into law."

Attsr a lengthy discussion of trusts, good and bad, and the success of prosecutions unact, Mr. Tatt der the Sherman ears. the 'it la the duty and purpose ofby the de. to direct an Investigation of Juatlce. through the grand Into thn history, iiartment purposes of all the Industrial companies with repect to whlrh there la any reasonable ground for suspicion that they have been organised for a purpose, and are conducting business on a. plan which Is In violation of theone, but It law. The work Is a heavy la not beyond the power of the department of Juatlce. If aumdent funds are furnished, to rarry on the Investigation and to pay the counsel engaged In the work ilut auch an Investigation and possible prosecution of corporations whose prosperity nr destruction affects the comfort not only of stockholders but millions nf wage earners, employes, and associated distradesmen must necessarily tend to combusiness turb the confidence of the flowing sources munity, to dry up tho now of capital from Its plarrs of hoarding, and produce a halt In our present prosrlty that will cause suffering and strained circumstances among the Innocent many fur fnults nt the guilty few Tho question which I wish In this message to bring clearly to the consideration and decision of the congress whether to avoid business danger something cannot be done by may which these business combinations finan1m. offered a means, without great cial disturbance, of changing the character, organisation and extent of their business Into one within the lines of the law under federal control and supervision, securing compliance with the statutes. For Government Control. "Ornerally. In the Industrial combinations called trusts." the principal business Is the salo of goods In many statea and In foreign markets In other words, Mr the Interstate and foreign business one exceeds thn business done In any fedatnle.

In dealing, therefore, with many of tha men who havo used the methods condemned by, the statute for the purpose of maintaining a profitable business, we may well facilitate a change by them In the method of doing biislneea, and enable them to bring II back Into the gone of lawfulneaa, without losing to the country the economy or. management by which. In our domestio trade the cost of production has been materially lessened, and In cometltlon wllh foreign manufacturrra our foreign trade lias been greatly Increased. Atki National Corporation Law. "I therefore recommend the enactment by congress ot a generad law providing for the formation of corporations to engage In trade and commerce among the statea and with foreign nations, protecting them from undue Interference by the ao atatea and regulating their activities naas to prevent tha recurrence, under tional auaplces, of those abuses widen have arisen under stats control. Such a law should provide for thn Issue of stock of aurh corporatlonaa to an amount equal only to the cash paid In on the atocu; and If the etock be Issued for property, then at a fair valuation ascertained under approval and supervision of federal nulhorlty after a full and complete disclosure of all the facts pertslnlntf to the value ot auch property and the Interest therein of the persons to whom It Is proposed to Issue stock In payment of sun n property. It should subact the real nnd personal property only of such to the same taxation as by the statea within which It may be situated upon other similar property located therein, and It should require such corporations to (lie full and complete reports of their operations with the department of commerce and labor at regular Intervale. Corporations organized under this art ahould be prohibited from acquiring and holding etock In other corporations (except for special reasons upon approval by the proer federal authority), thus avoiding the creation, under national auspices, of the holding company with subordinate corporations in different states which has been surh an effective ngency In the creation of the great trusts and monopolies. State Laws Conflict. act "If the prohibition ot the against combinations in restraint of trade la to be effectively enforced. It la essential that the national government ahall provide for the creation ot national corporations to carry on a legitimate business throughout the United Htates. The conflicting laws ot the different states of tha union with respect to foreign corporations make It difficult, if not Impossible, for one corporation to comply with their requirements so as to carry on bualneaa In a number of different atatea. "To the suggestion that this proposal ot federal Incorporation for industrial combinations la Intended to furnish them a refuge In which to continue Industrial It business under federal protection. should be said that the meaaure contemplated doea not repeal thn Hherman law and la not to be framed ao as to permit the doing of the wrongs which It Is the purpose of that law to prevent, hut only to foster a continuance and advance of the hlgheat Industrial efficiency without permitting Industrial abuses. "Such a national Incorporation law will be opposed, first, by thoae who believe that trusta should be completely broken up and their property destroyed. It will be opposed, second, by thoae who doubt the constitutionality ot auch federal Incorporation and even It It Is valid, object to It as too great federal centrallxatlon. It will be oppoaed, third, by those who will Insist that a mere voluntary Incorporation like thla will not attract to Its nsslstunre the worst ot tha offenders actlnet the propose statute and who will therefore Instead of It a system of compulsory licenses for all feder al corporations engaged in iniersisio business. ua conalder thean objections In their order. The government la now try-Itn dissolve some f theae combine- tlona and It la not the Intention of tha government to desist In the least degree In Its effort to and thee combinations monopolising the comwhich are merce of this country, that where It a p. peara that thn acquisition and concentration ot property go tn the extent of creating a monopoly of substantially and directly restraining Interstate commerce. It Is not the Intention ot the government to permit this monopoly to exist under federal Incorporation nr to transfer to the protecting wing of the federal ot a state corporation now violating the Sherman act. Ilut It la not, and should not be, the policy nt the government to provent reasonable concentration of capital which la necessary to the economic development of manufacture, trade and commerce. , . , Mi Doubt Constitutionality. "Second There are those who doubt the constitutionality of auch federal incorporation. Tha ngulatlon of Interstate and foreign commerce Is certainly conferred In tho fullest measure upon congress, and If for the purpose of securing In the most thorough manner that kind of regulation, congress shall Insist that It may provide and authorise agencies to carry on that commerce. It would seem to be within its power, this has been distinctly affirmed with respect to railroad companies doing an Interstate business nnd Interstate Iftldgea. Tho power of Incorporation has been exercised by conirras and upheld by the supreme court In this regard. Why, then, with respect to any other form ot Interstate commerce like the sale of goods across state boundaries and Into foreign countries, may the same power not bo asserted? Indeed. It is the very fart that they carry on Interstate commerce that makes these great Imlustilal concerns subject to federal prosecution and rontrol. Mow far as Incidental tn the carrying on of thnt commerce It may bo within the iiower of the federal government to authorise the manufacturer ot goods, Is perhaps more open to discussion, though a rrceiit dectalon of the supreme court would seem to answer that question In the nttlrmatlve. "Thn third objection, thnt the worst of. frndera will not nccept federal Incorporation, la easily answered. The decreea ot Injunction recently adopted tn prosecutions under the law are se thorough and sweeping tlrat tha corporations affected by them have but three coursea before them: "First, they must resolve themselves Into their component parts In the different states, with a consequent loss to themsehes of capital nnd effective organisation and to the country ot concentrated energy and enterprise; or seconJ. In defiance of the law and under some areret trust they must attempt to continue thrlr business In violation ot the federal statute, nnd thus Incur the penalties of contempt and bring on an Inevitable criminal prosecution of the Individuals named In the decree and their associates; or Third, they must reorganize and accept In good faith the federal charter t suggest a federal compulsory license law, urged as a substitute for a federal Incorporation law. la unnecessary except to reach that kind of corporation which, by virtue ot the consideration already advanced, will take advantage voluntarily of on Incorporation law. while the oilier stnte corporations doing an Interstate bualneaa do not peed the supervision or thn regulation of federal license and only ba unnecessarily burdened would thereby." anti-truantl-truat anti-tru- TERRIBLE VENGEANCE BY NOBLEMAN WROUGHT hmm ad r, Merchants Bank TORTURED WIFE AND HER AD MIRER WITH FUJtY OF A UNTIL DEATH COMES, 8AV-AGE Clinton Street, nickman, Kentucky.

Ing of About Half the Fruit Put Up The Procett of Cold Canning. Calcium and ningnosliiiii nro two minerals very cloudy associated, and, willed with carbon dioxide, they constitute the limestone beds of tho work accomplishes this. This Is tho sire or our field of corn, As wo sat by n blazing flro (o wnnn n love for ono's Hfiid In band with the rnnnln of fruits and vegetables should go tlio This knowledge of sterilization. mean more thnn washing and rinsing of a' jar, oven when this la dono with tore than ordinary care. Soap la excellent, but nlono It Is not sulllclont to sterilize a Jar and its cover. Ilolllng water Is necessary and It la needed for a longer period than simply rins- About half the fruit which spoils and thus adds expense to the cost of housekeeping, spoils because the jars and covers are not properly sterilized. To sterilize a Jar, Immerso It with the cover in a pan of cold water, put the pan on the stove and boll for at least ten minutes. If the Jar Is removed from the water beforo using, turn it upside down to keep out tho air. Rubbers should never be used tho second time. The hands and all clothing about the Jars should be perfectly clean. The process of cold canning Is coming Into favor rapidly and will soon replace the old methods of canning altogether, This process leaves tho small fruits In their natural shapes and more of their color Is retained than where the fruit Is cooked. Sugar Is not at all necessary for successful canning by this mothod, In faot if a largo quantity is used It will draw out and change the flavor of the fruits. Excellent results have been obtained by adding to water only about as much sugar as is contained Is the fruit. All that is necessary is to put clean fruit in a sterilized jar and pour water over it until the jar ia filled, seal and 8t in a pan of water which must be brought to tho boiling polaL Clean fruit in clean Jars will not spoil. "Clean" means free from molds or ferments that fall from the air, and it the fruit Is clean In this sease, thorn will be no necessity of using the "powders" which housewives are sometimes Induced to buy. Upon analysis these powders are Invariably found to contain injurious chemicals if not positive poisons. One of the best fruits for cold canning Is Hawaiian pineapple. It Is a good fruit on which to try the process. Simply peel it and slice in a sterilized jar. Pour over it sterilized and slightly sweetened water, to which has been added a pinch of salt. The salt brings out the flavor of the fruit In quite an unexpected way. Tomatoes may be treated In tho same way or they may be sliced and covered with equal parts of water and vinegar. A can which had been sealed five years was recently opened in the domestic science laboratory of Columbia university and th color was as bright and as perfect as on the day the can was sealed. New Vegetable Knife. One of the useful kitchen tools of who likes daintily the housewife served food is a fluted vegetable knife. There are many varieties of this knife, but a convenient one has the fluted surface on the lower half and a plain edge toward the point.

Carbonic ncld, which comes down from tho clouds in the rnlns that moisten tho earth, dlssolvit the lime In our soils nnd If deep plow ing Is not practiced, nnd the noil is left bnro during the winter, erosion. or in other words washing takes place and the lime Is wnshed awny to the gulf, or loaches out. and this condition coupled with the plowing under of heavy beds of weedH ami the mingling of carbonic acid, leaves nn acid, or sour soli upon which clover ennnot be grown successfully, much lens Why Is this? Tho nitrifying so necessary to the fixing of mumus, which we mentioned In our Inst artl- cle. and manipulating the nltrogon so m to make It available for plant food cannot exist In nn ncld soil, and without them upon the roots of clover, nl- falfa and other legumes, theso plants cannot he grown successfully. Asldo from this condition clover, for each 1000 pounds of air dry product re quires from the soil SC. 5 imutida. for the stalk and 3G.9 pounds for the grain or a total of 93.4 pounds of lltue. From the foregoing wo can fonn some conception of the wonderful tenacltj of Fulton county soil. With no undurlylng strain of lime stone close to the surface from whose bearers and coral builders have, In all tho geologic ages, laid down their mantles and framowork for our beno-fl- t and from such conditions we have been drawing the llrno that has thus far given us ample results. Dut we have at last drawn to the limit, nature no longer responds In bounteous crops of clover and we wondor why. The conditions that confront us nre outlined nbovo; wo have arrived at a period In the whtch we must heed the cry of nature and supply her with tho conditions for which sho Is clamoring before she can respond to the demands made upon her for her generous gifts as of yore. The soil of Fulton county and the Purchase generally. Is acid, or sour to make my meaning clearer, nnd this ncldlty must be corrected; this can only be done by the application of that constituent that the soli hns been robbed of Lime. Raw limestone, while not so quickly avail able, is the safest to use, at tho rate of a ton to the ncre. Ilurnt, or caustic lime becomes available at once, but must bo air slaked beforo It Is aplted; S00 or 1000 pounds of the latter Is sufficient, being In a concentrated form, requiring ono hun dred pounds of raw limestone for GG pounds of caustic lime. Tho applica tion to be made a week or two prior to wheat seeding and harrowed in, not plowed. Never apply lirao in a caustic state, or rather burnt lime with manure, a denitrifying process takes place that releases tho nitrogen, forming nitric acid which escapes in tho air and robs it (the manure) of IU plnnt food. CuubMc lime, when plowed undor In Its caustic state destroys the humus and leaves your soli In a worso condition than it was beforo the application.

Limestone for Boils can also be procured at HopklnsvHle, but Is much higher, yet considering the amount of clover seed that Is sown each spring with results it would be cheap ntany price If results can be obtained. Pro- gresslvo farmers all over the state are using ground HmoHtono with good results, and while they began tho use of it very charily, thoy are now us-lIt In large quantities nnd find It gives results far beyond their most sanguine expectations. Tho soil of Fulton county can bo made as fertile as It was In Its vergln state, and Prof. Hopkins sayB: "Soil that once produced 30 and 40 bushels of whoat and 15 and 20 barrels of corn to the aero, can bo made to do It ngaln with proper conditions and proper cultivation."

If this timc'y warning is ignored, kidney disease silently fastens kidney sickness first shows itself in its deadly grip-U- 'or pains and disorders in other parts, and the real cause is too often hidden until fatal Bright's disease or diabetes has set in. Suspect the kidneys if you arc rheumatic and nervous or have lame back, painful, too frequent or scanty urination, weak heart, dizzy spells, headaches, bloating or neuralgia. What you want is a special kidney medicine not an experiment but one that has" stood the test for years. Doan's Kidney Pills relieve weak, congested kidneys cure backache regulate the urine. A KIDNEY REMEDY OF 75 YEARS' EXPERIENCE DOAN'S KIDNEY PILLS began curing lame backs and sick kidneys 75 years ago. The demand lead a nearby druggist, James Doan, to prepare it for sale. From him the magic formula passed to the present proprietors. Now, as in those early days, Doan's Kidney Pills are made from only the purest drugs They arc used and praised all over the civilized world. and are absolutely non-poisono- biiyPicture fftn. DOAN'S KIDNEY PILLS MAKE LASTING CURES Kansas, savs: "In the spring of itoq Doan's Kidney rills brought roe such great relief that I did not hesiuto to make tha fact known and giro this remedy my most earnest endorsement. In my statement I said that for three years I had suffered from kidney complaint. I bad a dull grumbling ache across the small of my back that greatly Inconvenienced mo when reaching and straining in doing my work, An annoying kidney weakness was also In evidence and It was out of the question for me to sleep well. In the morning I was all tired out and it can be seen that I was In bad shape. The, use ol Doan's Kidney Pills quickly arid surely drove away these symptoms of kidney complaint and I have since been in good health. Tbe foregoing statement was given in March :ooj. and when Mr. Dlack was interviewed on Nov. iz, 1008, he said: "I have never bad a return attack of kidney complaint and I know that my cure is a permanent one. My faith in Doan's Kidney Pills is stronger than ever. Mrs. James Crooks, First St.. N. W American Fork, Utah, says, "I had kidney complaint for ten years or more. Sometimes a twinge darted through the small of my back andloften became sohelpless-tha- t I was compelled to go to bed with my clothe on. The attacks often lasted for days at a time-anI could not even stoop to put on my shoes. My condition was certainly alarming. The secretions from my kidneys were irregular In passage; and contained a heavy sediment after standing. I well know' what the misery kidney complaint causes and I can therefore appreciate the merits of a remedy that cures this disease. Doan's Kidney Pills lived up to the claims made for them in my case and eHected a cure. My kidneys were restored to a normal condition and my health, greatly improved." (Statement given Aug.22.1007. On Aug. 24, 1909. Mrs. Crooks was interviewed by one- - of our representatives and she said "It gives ma pleasure to reendorso Doan's Kidney Pills. They cured my backache and my health is now good.
