It Is said, too, that an effort Is being made by those Interested In the passage of the public utilities bill to induce enough of the members who Toted against the bill, at the regular session, to change their minds and rote for the bill at a special session to be held this summer. It Is reported reliably that several members have expressed a willingness to change their votes and cast them for the utilities bill. The rumor current here was that as soon as enough members bad changed, so as to Insure the passage of the bill, an extra session ALEXANDER would be called, or at least the gov- MILLET ernor would be asked to Issue the call.

One of the most difficult problems for the poultryman to solve Is bow to easily provide pure, fresh water for his fowls. Give the birds clean nests and roosting places, study their likings and needs, and the egg yield should be increased. Tho essentials for winter eggs are hens that come from a strain of good layers, comfortable quarters, and an abundance of food. Three-fourth- s ot the diseases could be traced to Impure air, dampness. Im proper rood, close oreeaing ana conditions. Wheat screenings, having more protein, are superior to the plump grain for laying hens, and when they are good and clean ar very much cheaper than good wheat. H ikman Ice & Coal Co. J. T.

Fordyco, obtained a patent from tho United States on a cotton gin which ho invented. It Is claimed to bo the first successful departure from tbo gin inverted by Eli Whitney In 1793. This new gin pulla tho fiber from the seed In such a manner that the natural length and strength of each fiber Is preserved. This gives It a length of to of an inch over the old way. The speed of ginning exceeds tho speed of the saw gin from 20 to 50 per cent while. the power required Is loss. It strips the fiber from 'he seed In a more thorough manner nnd Increase the amount of lint obtained from tho seed by about 4 per cent over the saw gin. At tho cotton mill the cotton from tbi new gin has 18 per cent less waste and the spinning value is so much increased that tho yarn made from it Is C per cent stronger than cotton from the old stylo gin.

Frailer essayed the delicate task of tightening up the valve of his heart and reinforcing the entire structure. Eiamlnatlon disclosed the fact that the aorta waa about to rupture. This would Inevitably have resulted In death. Dr. Frailer opened the aorta as near to the heart aa possible and deftly Inserted a hollow needle which had electrically been Insulated. Through this needle Frailer pushed and arranged In evenly distributed colls more than six feet of solid gold wire This thread of wire was guided by the surgeon through the pulsing blood vessel by the) sense of touch alone, and It was built up In the aorta, at the point of Its weakest dilation, just as a weakened building wall would be strengthened at Its most perilous point. Thus the heart was bound round, on tho inside, with a coll of strong but fine wire, caught and held In place by the surgeon's trained fingers. Then the problem of preventing bemorhage arose. Coagulation of the blood waa tho great, the vital end sought It waa decided to employ electricity to obtain this purpose. Coagulation takes place at both ends of the galvanlo current that at the poslttvo polo being small, black and hard, and that the the negative being larger, softer and of yellowish color. It happens that the blood Is the very best agency In the body for tho conducting of eloctrlclty, and when, as In this case, both poles are Inside the sao and near to each other, a mild current of electricity will cause vigorous electrolysis. In applying- - the current to Braden a rheostat waa used to control the flow and to prevent shock when it should be cut off. Thus by coagulation the relnforoe-meof the heart was accomplished over the gold wire framework and nature ia building a sew wall within the valve, stopping all leakage and giving-- John Bradea a new lease of life. ilililliililKiElllllHF; BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBSV "'iaslB'yfc' L !BUmSSB!l KSrTKElLL J 9ftr"lEfMHIfittfcL(i T " JJt'?--''- " KKml ' ZM A 4 1 lr sbbbbbbbbbbbbbbKt BBBBBBBBBBBSW BBBBBBBBBBBBBb Asm lfe' & ''V'9EHeV :iiT373SHBBBBBLi 'lifllHHHiW ' JBBBBBD0-mj3BBBBTBBSk C- nBBMsKjYlBBBIiUBBBK-BBBBBBBBBF- SBBBBaST I SSBBBBBmBW- - - lB tJBKs A BBm BBBBBBBBBBBBBHSBBwK BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBbBKW BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB"- ' , J iA Sll llBBBrB1"TfBBBBBBBBBBBMlBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBrT -- 1 WBs sfflBBBkZMBBBBBBlBBBBBBBBBBBflBBBBBBBBBBBBf ', SSr MJg JBBBBBBBBBBBBlDEV mjJfcJ: 'BmjBBBBBBBBBBBBlBBBBBBBBBBBBi -- .TflG'fjBBBBBBr'wRoBBPBBl YV''fflr ' "-- 1 ' T ?

One side of tho box In which I lay had been broken out, and I could see the full length of the shop, which appeared littered from end to end with all manner of Implements of husbandry, and woodworking and blacksmith's tools. All this I perceived with my first glance, but It waa tho distant sound of a voice which aa Instantly held my attention. At first 1 could not locate the speakor, nor comprehend the peculiar singsong of the utterance. But as'l lifted my head, listening Intently, I knew the man to be beyond the wooden partition at my Tight, and that he waa praying fer vently. Somehow heartened by this .discovery I crept out from the bed of papers, and stolo silently forwsrd to (the narrow door which apparently led Into this second apartment. The voice never ceased In Its monotonous appeal, and I ventured to lift the latch. and take cautloua glance through the slight opening. It was a blacksmith shop of fair size, fully equipped with all the tools of the trade. The man was facing me, but with eyes closed, and uplifted, aa his lips poured forth the fervent words of prayer. I was not a rellgtoua man In those days, yet the faith of my mother was not forgotten, and there waa something of sincerity about that solitary kneeling figure I could not but respect. The words uttered, the deep resonant voice, and above all, the ex presslon of that upturned face, held me silent, motionless. He waa a man of short, sturdy limb, but great bulk, massive chest, and Immense shoulders evidencing remarkable strength. What was this man, this praying black smith f A patriot surely, from hli words of petition; ono who had suf fercd much, but was willing to suffer mora.

"You may know It, young man, but I don't." he replied gruffly. "We're a bit suspicious of strangers here In the Jerseys these days. The minions of Satan encompass us about.

It was a hard swim across the awlft current, and I was nearly exhausted when I Anally crept up the low bank, and lay dripping and pant lag in the ahelter of some low bushes. Except for tho baric of a distant dog there was no sound more disturbing than the rustle of leaves, and the lap ping of water. As my breath came back I sat up, wrung out my clothes aa best I could, and, with difficulty, dnew on the boots I had borne across, slung to my shoulder. I possessed but a dim conception of where I was, yet knew I must make a wide detour to the east so as to escape British foraging parties. I must have plodded doggedly along through the darkness for fully five miles, without perceiving the first a'df of habitation, or even a wood Intc which I could crawl for concealment, when I suddenly came upon a long, stone building standing al the left of the road, a grim, silent, ap parsntly dooerted structure, one end of the roof caved In, and several ol the windows smashed. I tried tht doors, but they appeared firmly fastened. Far In the east there was a faint lightening of the sky promlalni the approach of dawn, and thni 'aroused to a knowledge that I must Immediately attain shelter, I clam' bered through one of the broken win dows, and dropped to the earthen floor within. I could see ncthlng, not even a band held before my eyes, yet carefully felt my way forward through a tangle of rubbish, wheels, scraps ol Iron, some casks, a number of plough bandies, and a riffraff of stuff I could not make out. The place had evident ly been used as a repair shop, but must have been closed for months, ai I could feel the grit of dust every where, and cobwebs brushed against 'my faco as I moved about. Finally 1 felt the outlines of a large box ball filled with paper, and, for want ol something better, crept In and snuggled down, Intending to rest there until daylight should reveal my surroundings. I was warm enough now, my clothing practically dry, but thoroughly tired from the long tramp over the one-story I bad corae up gasping for breath, rell out In the stream, either shore a mere darker ahadow showing above the water. How far I had been swept ' below the barge could not be guessed, as I could distinguish no outllnoa clearly, excepting the bare spars of a Tesiel, tied up to the west shore. As this ship had not been in sight prevl ously I concluded tho drift had been greater than anticipated, and I struck out quickly toward the opposite bank, fearful lest I be borne down as far as The Blacksmith.

"No," I replied, with some hesita tion. "Have we ever met before?" "Not to my remembrance," and the man's language and accent evidenced education above his apparent station.

With teeth clinched I remained breathless, but the feltow seemed satisfied, and moved on, after searching the dark corner beyond. At last I heard them all go out, mumbling to each other, and ventured, to sit up again, and draw a fresh breath. They bad left tbe door ajar, and I bad a glimpse through tho crack. Farrell was leaning carelessly in tbe outer doorway, smoking, his short legs wfdo apart, his expression one of total indifference. A big fellow stepped past him, and saluted some on Juaf out of sight "Nobody in there, sir," he reported. "All right, Mason," and Grant came Into view on a rangy sorrel. "Get your men back into saddle; we'll move on." "Think he went this way!" asked the blacksmith carelessly. "How the hell do I know!" savagely.

The messages were mostly unofficial, however, and none came direct from the liner, so a lurking fear remained of possible bad news to come. Shortly sfter 7 o'clock there came flsshed over the wires from Cape Rare, within 400 mile of which the liner had struck the iceberg, word that at 2:20 o'clock Monday morning, three hours minutes after receiving her anu fifty-fivdeath blow, the Titanic had sunk. The news came from the steamer Carpxthla, relayed by the White Star liner Olympic, and revealed that by the time the Carpathia, outward bound from New York, and racing for the Titanie on a wireless call, reached the scene the doomed vessel bad sunk. Left on the surfsee, however, were lifeboats from the Titanic, and in them, as appears from the meager rrjKrt received up to a late hour, were some 07S survivors of the disaster. These, according to the advices, the Carpathia picked up. For the rest, the scene as the Carpathia came up was one of desolation. All that remained of the $10,000,000 floating prtl.iee, on which nearly 1.400 psssengers had been vovaging luxuriously to this side of ths Atlantic, were some bits of wreckage. The biggest ship in the world had gone down, snuffing out In her downwnrd plunge, it appears, hundreds of human lives. All Saved Women. A significant line In the Cape Race dipatch was the announcement that of those saved by the Carpathia, nearly all were women and children. Should It prove that no other vessel nicked up any passengers of the sinking liner, this might mean that few of the men on board had been saved, as the proportion of women and children among the passengers wss Urge. The same fuels would likewise spell the doom of the entire crew of about 860. In the cabins were 230 women anil children, but it is not known how many passengers.

John Jacob Astor, wno, witu nis bride, was returning from their long honeymoon abroad, saw his bride placed iu a lifeboat and safely away. Col. Astor was drowned. The work of getting the lifeboats away, the work of allaying the fears of the great crowd of passengers as much as possible, the work of keeping ths pumps in operation and the engine throbbingthese taaks and countless others were directed by Capt. Smith, the venerable commander of the THanle and before her advent the commander of ths Olympic, who displayed almost n power of mind a ad body as the world's horrible sea disaster crowned his long and honorable sorvlce on the high sea.

Col. Mengei Is not only a broad minded man, but Is optomlstlc with it Ho believes that a greater power than that of man contribute- - to such disasters as recently befall us, and the best thing to do Is to accept It gracefully smile tho while and go ahead. However great or sinjill tho loss, it remains tho same a thing that can't be helped by getting pessimistic.

Tho Colonel's view Is the logical one; wish we hnd a dozen such men Interested In Hickman. In short, tho Mengei Box Co. will roaume operations Ju.s fib soon as tho water gets out of tho way. Col.

In a short time, everything will bo moving along a? smoothly as though tho flood nov- -r happenod. It might also bi entloned, too, that the next high water will find the Mengei factories properly protected.

Walker says a levee made of cinders don't go with them next time. But the railroad company could not well afford to bo left on tho outsldo of tho now levee. First, they need the protection; second, it would cost them practically as much to raise their tracks to get over such a levee as It would cost to properly construct their part of It. At any rate, the matter of a West Hickman levee Is going to be taken up at once.

A part of this was withheld, but enough was divulged to the newspapers to make certain the appalling extent of the oatastrophe.
