certain man living in the Southern part ofthe county who makes two or three trips to Mt Vernon each week with his wagon told us this week that if something was not done to the town hill road that he and others who have con siderable hauling to do would be compelled to take their goods to some other shipping point We are informed that there is one place on the hill where the wheels jump off a rock into a mud hole where the mud is about two or three feet deep and in going up the hill it is about all a team can do to pull an empty wagon over that place This is within the corporate limits of the town and we think it a shame and a disgrace that our town would permit such a thing It is generally talked and has been for some time that the present board of trustees were elected for the a vowed purpose of seeing that there is no kind of a corporation carried on and we have about come to the conclusion that such be the case Hundreds of dollars are leaving our town and going elsewhere every yearbecause of the indifference and lack of enterprise on the part of our citizens The vacant lot lying next to J T Adams store is to be cleaned up grass sown and the appearance of the place improved generally It the Fiscal Court of this county wants to do their full duty we be iieve it ought to appropriate suffi dent money to build a good bridge EastIought to have it During the wet season and the

climbs up the side of a trey and in the natural process develops into a winged Pharoah after which it repeats the process of re production just as its ancestor did 17 years before But the continu ed cutting away of the timber nar rows the breeding ground of the insect until now the crop is not nearly so large as the previou one The insect is one of natures curiosities THE KNOCKER In every com munity there are certain people who find it difficult or impossible to work in line with their fellows They may not be justly accused of malicious motives for in many re spects they are frequently admirable citizens Vet by some consti tutional twist they are usually out of tune with the rest of mankind Such is the knocker This new use of the term will probably find legitimate piace in u languge af ter the fashion of the words Iboss and mugwump The dictiona Ties define the knocker as one who knocks and it is strikingly applica ble to the person who has ever ready his little billet of spite and prejudice Such people often do incalculable harm They throw a damper on every enterprise They are to be pitted for they are men generally the most miserableI Theirs indeed is a deplorable con dition of mind for there is no great er temporal pleasure than that afforded through the consciousness of being in step with the great mass of ones fellows To be al ways objecting and obstructing certainly unfortunate for the individual It must not be understood that the right to justly criticise is denied oh no For that would mean the enduring ofall manner ofunjust if not rascally proceed

ones town and of its institutions andenterprises We should Wel come every well be baved stranger and swing wide the doors to every new industry The citizen belit tles himself who speake slightly of his home or of any new enterprise seeking to gain a foothold Care fully analyze your motives for de siring to obstruct to make sure that you ctonot place yourself in the uu enviable position ofa

ROCKCASTLE COUNTY KY MARCH 23 1906 Pages 1 to 4 EIGHTYSIXTH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION OF WOMAN SUF FRAGISTS IN HONOR OF MISS ANTIIONF Protest Against Laws Which Allow Mothers Small Protection Over Children Plea for Exercises of Corrective Ballot It is a rare occurrence when noted men of the country gather together to do honor to a woman who has worked and striven for a cause to which many of them are antagonistic Yet this was the case a week or two ago when statesmen political leaders jurists and literary lights joined in paying homage to Miss Susan B Anthony the great woman suffragist on the occasion of her ixth birth aYIton in February of course being present to listen to the addresses and words of felicity She had just come from a convention of woman suffragists in Baltimore Among the letters of congratulation read was one from President Roose velt which said Let me join in congratulating Miss Susan B Anthony on the occasion of her eightysixth birthday and extend my best wishes to her upon her con tinued good health In reply to the numerous congratu lations Miss Anthony owing to a se vere cold confined her remarks to these few words I wish the men would do something besides extend congratulations I have asked President Roosevelt to push the matter of a constitutional amendment allowing suffrage to women by a recommendation to Con gress I would rather have him say a word to Congress for the cause than to praise me endlessly The Rev Anna Howara Shaw a prominent woman leader presided over the meeting introducing the speakers and incidentally poking much fun at the members of the stern er sex She said that any man who accepts a post of especial learning immediately dons a gown It was true of college professors of graduates and of men who sat upon the Supreme Bench She stated that the gown is a symbol of wisdom Over One Hundred Woman Leaders In connection with this celebration of Miss Anthonys birthday one hun dred and fifty advocates of woman suffrage swooped down on the Mem bers of Congress and hurled at the Statesmen all sorts of feminine oratory on the subject In appealing to the solons of the Capitol the argument was made by the women that God did not intend the female to be subserv ient to man and that she should be given justice through the ballot The principal address was made by Miss Mary Thomas of Baltimore who protested against the laws dis criminating against women We have no right to the children we have cradled in our loving arms beyond the age of seven years she said and now our boys of eighteen need not ask our permission to join the army and navy if their fathers are willing The girls of Maryland who cannot contract legal marriages under sixteen years of age may then consent to their own degradation and their destroyer go free Think of this terrible injustice to ignorance and innocence and grant us the power to protect the child who cannot protect himselfThe saloon keeper the cigarette vender and the gambler may ply their nefarious trades next door to our very homes and we are powerless to save the boys of the land from their influ ence We ask of Congress the right to express our opinion at the ballot loxbecause it will be the surest and safest way to accomplish what we desire Miss Anthonys Remarkable Bat tle Against Ridicule and Calumny Susan Brownell Anthony was born 86 years ago in the Hicksite Quaker settlement at South Adams Mass and was as quiet and gentle and obedient a little Quaker maiden as any of her playmates in that tranquil spot Her life was uneventful until she took up teaching and went out into the world She was 26 years old when she made her first fight for the right of suffrage It was for the right to vote at a tem perance meeting which was dominated by young men The Sons of Temper ance were holding a convention at Albany N Y and the Daughters of Temperance were invited to meet with them Susan was one of the Daugh ters who accepted the invitation Ear ly in the proceedings the young women discovered that their position tin the convention was purely an honorary one The men did not propose tnat they should have any voice in the proceedings It was against scripture and against her natural sphere that woman should raise her voice in the councils of men were the arguments of the men in answering the protests of the women and in refusing their petition to be allowed to vote Suddenly a tall slender Quaker girl arose from her seat and followed by six others marched out of the convention hall The leader was Susan B Anthony It was her first rebellion against that order of things which gave men a monopoly of power She Immediately set about organizing the Womens New York State Temperance Society That was the real beginning of what has bees her lifes work In which the central theme has ever beep equal suffrage for the sexes Great Courage to Withstand Rebuffs It required great courage to under take this work at the time and in the manner she did But she possessed that requisite and exercised it on many occasions She never faltered never lost heart though she was con stantly subjected to ridicule calumny and opposition Few women were brave enough to follow her in those days In 1852 she addressed a large convention of men teachers A clergy man who was present complimented her afterwards You spoke ably and well he said but I had rather see my mother and sister dead in their graves than to hear them speaking from a public platformUnceasingly she preached the doc trine of womans suffrage and equal rights Few even among women them Lcader of Woman Who selves grasped her message and her very name became a term of derision She was caricatured insulted jeered at and maligned In the early days of the movement Womens Rights was the synonym for dress reform for neglected home duties for rabid political tendencies and for unwomanly womenI Elizabeth Cady Stanton Anthonys earliest ally Together they conducted one campaign after seemingly making but little headway at first They traveled all over the country going from place to place in open wagons stage or what ever other conveyance was obtainable and from door to door on foot They endured many hardships and were sub jected to insults innumerable People said of them that Mrs Stanton made the balls and Miss Anthony fired them She proved her good marksmanship by making every ball count Partial Suffrage in Many States I never saw that tall stately Quaker girl coming across my lawn said Mrs Stanton But what I knew another bombshell was to be hurled into some assembly of men Miss Anthony was arrested and fined for illegal voting in 1872 She had cast a ballot at the election She never paid the fine Since then four states have granted the right of suffrage to women 23 states have given them the right to vote at school elections and New York permits women taxpayers to vote on all questions affecting the tax ation of property For years Miss Anthony hoped to live to see a woman elected and inaugurated as President of the United States but she has bandoned that hope now realizing that such a thing will not come to pass in her day Her life is now less strenuous and she and her sister Mary have a quiet pretty home at Rochester N Y She keeps in touch with every cause in the interest of or for the advancement of woman and in her voluminous corres pondence continues to give advice and counsel to women in all quarters of the globe Out of her little workshop in the attic of the Rochester home comes much of the ammunition used in continuing the battle for suffrage Six years ago at the age of 80 she learned to operate a typewriter which she employs In her personal corres pondence and In carrying on her work Time has dealt gently with her She is still stately and erect and her step has the vigor and elasticity of most Women many years her junior Her memory is undulled by age all of her faculties seem to retain the keenness which made her such a power In the prime of her life Her Interest ia the worlds affairs is unabated and her mind is attuned to every movement having for its object the bettennefft of mankind TRIUMPH FOR ROOT GERMANYS NEW TARIFF ACT ALLOWS SMALLEST RATE ON AMERICAN GOODS Securing This Unlooked For Conces sion Makes Secretary of State a Diplomat of First Rank German Market Prized War has been averted between the United States and Germany not the strife of cannon and sword but com mercial war which nevertheless very seriously threatened important Ameri can industries The recent action of the German reichstag in passing legislation defer ring from March 1 next until June 30 1907 the assessment of the maximum Suffrage Movement SUSANB ANTHONYI another coaches schedules of the new imperial tariff against American goods thus averting a tariff war with the United States is the climax to a protracted interchange SecretaryRootwhich Secretary Root has achieved his first great feat of pure diplomacy Departmentinequal consideration in the German trade with other governments that have made great concessions to obtain the minimum tariff in Germany without any amelioration of our schedules against German goods entering this country ranks as one of the notable works of statecraft in several decades of the recent history of the American foreign office Had Secretary Root not already given ample promise of being a diplomat of the first class he would lightinAll Done in a Month Only a month before the action of the reichstag the German government was positionenforced on March 1 In the light of the reichstags action at the earnest solicitation of Chancellor von Buelow one might be led to think a colossal bluff had been attempted and pushed to the last moment by Germany But this it is understood here is not the case The seed of education as to the result of the tariff war which Mr Root had been sowing did not sprout until within the last few weeks then its growth was rapid Realizing that Mr Root was thor oughly familiar with all the premises and sound in his understanding of what the results would be of any course pursued by Germany and that he could not be shaken from his position of polite regret that no concession was possible at this ond of the wire the German statesmen quickly went to their reichstag and had legislation passed deferring the trouble Had the department here shown signs of hysteria or had Secretary Root not fully appreciated the several angles of the case or had lie made ex cited efforts to have Congress act hur riedly In giving Germany concessions before March 1 the Germans would have d rldnr1 that the TJjiIted States could be coerced by actually applying the maximum tariff but Mr Roots placid explanations that nothing at all could be done here either before or after March 1 had an exceedingly quieting effect upon German tariff opinionsSecretary Roots Impassive attitude which was so remarkably effective In this case Is all the more notable In view of the flood of excited protests that have come to Washington from associations of farminv amifacturlng and other producing interests In the Middle West which consider the Ger man market their velvet STOCK EXCHANGE SEATS Points of Vantage Where Millions Are Made and Lost While You Wait In keeping with the recent remarkable rise in stock prices in this coun try is the rapid advance in rates at which New York Stock Exchange seats are selling The membership of the Exchange is strictly limited to 1100 and seats are therefore objects of ardent desire on the part of many hundreds of market operators to whom a membership would be materially valuable A month ago a seat sold for 85000 a record price A few days ago membership rights were sold for 90000 and one seat was bought at the unprecedented price of 95000 It is believed that if there is another transaction of this character soon the price will reach 100000 or somewhat more than 50 per cent greater than the rate at which seats were sold two years ago In 1872 Stock Exchange seats sold for 4000 and this was regarded as high An idea of the reason why Wall Street operators are anxious to ob tain the right to transact their busi ness on the floor of the Exchange is gained from the fact that the stock transactions nowadays average close upon 1000000 shares a day If every member of the Exchange were active and if the business were evenly di vided such a daily business would give to each member a commission upon about 990 shares amounting to a yearly income of 32700 This is of course entirely apart from individual operations and profits These Stock Exchange seats are re garded as assets There has been in the past some trading in them for the sake of the profits gained by the rise in the rate but the tendency was dis couraged by a rigid enforcement of the rule that the purchaser must be ac ceptable to the governors of the Exchange Men now sell their seats only for urgent reason such as failure of health or removal to other fields In the latter case the New York seat is probably more profitably turned into cash at the high rates now prevailing than to be held for future use When a member of the exchange dies his executors sell his seat for the highest obtainable rate The bidding is often spirited and some of the most strik ing advances in the record prices have been scored in this way MILLIONAIRES FOR WAITERS Caddies Feasted as Guests of the Germantown Cricket Club Near Philadelphia Millionaires and men of promin ence in the business and social life of the city turned waiters and fed the little lads who have served as caddies on the golf links of the Ger mantown Cricket Club at a banquet at the clubhouse at Wissahickon Heights the other night The lads were delighted with the feast but more pleased with the attention show ered upon them by the dignified men of affairs who left nothing undone to make them happy As the eightysix youngsters rang ing in age from eight to sixteen years sat about the banquet board garbed in their regular costumes Samuel T Heebner one of the old members of the club wielded the carving knife and huge slices of turkey were prompt ly hurried to the hungry youngsters by the millionaire waiters First exMinister to Italy William Potter would hurry away with a plate then Sheriff Brown and Direc tor of Public Safety Potter would rush

their cad dies all of them mien of great affairs After the collation had been served William C Houston chairman of the golf committee called the gathering to order and made a brief address in which he congratulated the boys upon their behavior during the year As a means of still further pleasing the cad lies each was presented with a box of candy and prizes ranging from 51 to 250 in gold A

tion of Domestic Water IThe history of the rain drops and snow Hakes from the time of their formation till it merges with the- o ean to be again evaporated and re peat the process is ofttimes a long and devious one Some of the rain of course falls back into the ocean but much finds a temporary abiding place on the tops of high inland mountains and enjoys a year or more of travel and usefulness before it finally reaches its old mother ocean The Government is devoting considerable energy to the accumulation and dissemination of facts concern ing the behavior of water from the time it reaches the earth as rain or snow until it joins the ocean or great navi gable rivers Public appreciation of the value of this work has steadily in creased and urgent demands for its extension have come from all sections of the country The work includes the collection of data relating to the flow of surface streams researches on the location and movements of underground watersgreat subterranean rivers which move with deliberation and the investigation of the physical character of these waters such as hardness color turbidity etc The sources and effects of the pollution oC municipal water supplies have also received much study Measuring the Streams Flow As a means of obtaining reliable re cords of stream discharge in the im portant river basins of the country approximately SOO gauging or measur ing stations are maintained by the Government The records furnished by these stations are used by manu facturers and investors in planning the development of water power by muni cipalities in studyingjiroblems of water supply and by irrigators in determin ing the acreage which can be reclaimed from desert conditions and the crops which can safely be planted They are also of great Importance to engineers who obtain from them data for the study of many problems such as the relation between rainfall and runoff the effects of forests upon stream flow the occurence and control of floods etc- Throughout the eastern part of the United States the surface waters have great value as a source of cheap power and the demand for steamgauging data is constantly growing as manu facturing enterprises are developed In densely populated sections problems of water supply and sewerage disposal have also become urgent and are often complicated by the fact that cities not only draw their supply of water from convenient streams but in many cases empty their sewerage into them as well In such thickly settled regions even small and insignificant streams capacIty foriRELIC OF BULL RUN A Small Monument Erected on the Spot at the Time of the Battle This rude little monument stands on the bloodiest section of the Bull Run battlefields about one thousand yards northwest of the crossroads at Groveton The site of the monu ment is by the bankside of the old railroad cut Before the civil war a railroad was projected to run from the Manassas Gap Railroad at Gains vile Ta northeast to Leesburg SpringsThecession of cuts and fills from Galnsville to Sudley a distance of about three miles No ties or rails had been laid when at the outbreak of the war work stopped In the second uphlaBack of Groveton the line ran through a long low hill and this cut was in the center of the Con federate line Here the effort to dis lodge Jackson was most stubborn and thousands of Union soldiers fell in the unsuccessful attempt After Appomator when the Union army was on the march back to Washing ton many of the troops returned by way of the old Warrentown turnpike which runs through these bloody fields The bones of the Union sol diers who fell there had not at that time been exhumed and taken to Arlington The returning veteran paused long enough to erect and dedicate this

County New Mexico was a town of one hundred and fifty people This included the saloon bummers of whom there were a score and the stockraisers of the neighbor hood numbering a dozen These ranch men with one of the storekeepers were the only inhabitants with much pretence ta respectability the bulk of the population being cowboys herders roughriders and their friendsCalhoun was a cattlemans town id in this warm May weather Jeph sons saloon bubbled over with cow boys They were a mixed lot representative for the most part of every grade of blackguardism Here and there however you might find an American and even more frequently an Englishman of good upbringing riio had drifted into the whirlpool of cowpunching as some men drift to sea before the mast through inclina tion possibly for a wild unconven tional existence An Englishman of this class one May morning swung himself out of his saddle at Jephsons to fortify nature with a whiskey on his way south He was the son of a manufacturer in Lancashire England and his brothers were being educated for tho Army and the Church while he John Ogden the eldest twentyone years old this day was a wanderer on the western prairies earning a living as a covrnchcr John OsJea had done fairly well He was tot without selfcontrol and living in a land where all men went about armed to the teeth he had kept his temper so far and had never been in serious trouble The bar was crowded at Jephsons today and it was some minutes before John could ret his drink When served he withdrew to a table and sip lcd at his whiskey slowly lie was very tired having ridden forty miles thai day and herded cattle most of the preceding night so that he felt drowsy and languid Near him were saloon bummers their feet orna monting the top of an unlighted stove The swingdoor of the saloon and a man swaggered up to openedI One of the bummers pointed wards with his thumb Thats him Sammythe new Sher- Iff The other grinned Jedge Sanderbachs choice Burt Lassiter is the biggest tough in town Whynaterally hes friend of the JedgeYou bet They both laughed and then re lapsed into silence while John looked curiously at the man who had aroused this commcnt He wastall broad and stout with long heavy face thick lips and beetle brows Coarseness and brutality were written in every line of that face and his small rest less and near together contained a EnglishmanSheriff did not notice Ogden He was eeeklng for familiar faces The swingdoor opened again to ad mit another man who stood a moment looking about him nervously flicking a rawhide against his boots and glanc ing doubtfully at the bar He was a Mexican the full dark eyes and graceful figure of a Spaniard and the coarse immobile features of an Indian His dress was a complete suit of grey buckskin gaudily ornamented with beads and deeply fringed His sombrero new was bound with a smart of yellow and green and was tilted rakishly over his left ear His boots were polished his spurs silverplated of large size and being pendants of steel jingled like bells as he walked the sight of the greaser there was a general growl of disgust among the cowboys had Jose Gallegos been a wise man he would have gone elsewhere to assuage his thirst and indulge his passion for gambling Bnt Josfi was not wise nor at the moment particularly sober He had beea left a email legacy some sir hundred dollars and a portion of this was still burning his pocket Work therefore was out of the question drink and play srlth the white man Im R P J 1mJ I BY ARIHCR ATgI m was what his soul craved and he ad vanced to the bar where with the praiseworthy intention of conciliating a great man invited the Sheriff to drink It was a serious blundernot that Lassiter had the least objection to accepting whiskey from anyone even a Mexican at ordinary times but today he was on his dignity and the attitude of his neighbors forbade con descentlon even inviting aggressive measures Finally to complete Joses discomfiture he inadvertently trod upon the officers foot What the hl roared the Sher- Iff furiously and as Jose stumbled back with an apology he struck the wretched youth a heavy blow in the faceTake that to teach you manners greaserThe boy reeled backward blood flowing freely from nostrils and mouth and bedabbling his precious new clothes A shout of approving laughter greeted the exploit But JosS was not a coward Caramba he gasped you big dam devil He reached for his knife then shrank back at a threatening movement from two of his neighbors Not that said one gruffly Hit him back like a man The Mexican nped In helpless rageDiabalo How hit him He big as mountain bear Whats that said Lassiter the elementary instincts of his nature now fully aroused by the applause of the crowd Call me a bear would you Clear away boys Im going to pound the stuffin out of the skunk He advanced with an oath and the Mexican cowered behind the stove Upon this the bummers sprang out of the way taking their chairs with them But there was John Ogden He did not move except to rise to his feet with a flushed face and to quiet ly lay his empty glass on the tcble He was not a tall man but squarely and JOHN FELT HOT IRON TOUCH THE BACK OF HIS NECK two eyes with also cord At and still compactly built and very deep in the chest a great contrast to the loose limbed Lassiter Jos6 casting his eye about for a way of escape saw his opportunity and dodged round the table whereupon the Sheriff who had rushed at him collided violently with the Englishman When two bodies meet in such a manner it is usually the smaller one which suffers but in this instance to the astonishment of the cowboys the Sheriff staggered backwards while too smaller man stood like a rock Where are you coming to drawled John in the most disagreeable mar ner he could assume Are you drunk Dn you spluttered the Sheriff whose ribs had severely suffered by the scientific Insertion between them of the point of Johns elbow For two bits Ill drop ye as I dropped the you said the Englishman sneeringly then do it He changed his position his chest expanded he slightly raised his arm and advanced his left foot a few in ches balancing himself on the right Sammy whispered one of the bummers to his friend two drinks to one on the cowboy Ill take ye was the gruff answer Burt will kill him DoneAs word was spoken the Sheriff seething in his wrath bore down upon the Englishman like a three decker on a gunboat As he came he lunged at him heavily twice but he beat the empty air The first blow was parried skillfully the second slipped and then Ogden with every muscle braced poured in a swift broad side The firsta left handerfellbetween the Sheriffs eyes the second immediately on top of It came under his china deadly blow in itselfthe third crashed full upon the end of his nose and the fourth a vicious hammer with the weight of limb and shoulder behind it on the line of his jawbone Just below the ear Down went the big man an Inert mass bleeding and Insensible at which exploit the crowd stared and swore softly with wonder while the prescient bummer licked his lips Ogden knelt by the sheriff unfastening the collar of his coat His own position was now a very delicate one and he knew it If the Sheriff naa pals his adversary would pay with his life for the punishment he had inflicted Apparently however the man had no friends for not a soul except the landlord and John himself troubled to find out whether he was still alive- Nothing as it happened was serious ly wrong with Lassiter He was knocked out and severely bruised and would be marked for weeks but a stiff glass of brandy speedily re vived him and his shooting irons were removed from him A few minutes later Ogden was remounting to continue his journey with a pleased countenance and somewhat sore knuckles As he swung into the saddle he was accosted by the Mexican Senor where you vamos now will never come near Calhoun City night time No That Sheriff kill you John sniffed His funeral might come first Still you meant well Thanks my boy He smiled and with the impulse of a good natured man extended his hand Adios amigo he said The Mexicans face shone Ah gracious Senor I nevair forget A month later the spring roundup was over and John Ogden was a free preparingdecided to spend in Calhoun City The reason which drew him to Calhoun was one which he would not even own to himself homesickness The rail road had now reached the town and it was said had brought a cargo of people from the East decked out in the glories of civilized attire and John longed to see anything that would re mind him of old days So to Calhoun he went straight away and to Jeph sons There on the second day he met the Sheriff and a pleased light came into Lassiters crafty eyes as at the sight of something he had wished to see for a long time Hey a drink he said cordially My turn now Order yourself Ogden did so his right hand within easy grasp of his revolver But no move was made against him and after close observance of the man he came to the conclusion that none would be made Burt Lassiter was a coward This matter cleared up John settled down for a game of cards He was generally a lucky player but tonight everything went against him and he lost twentyfive dollars This was bad but what was worse was a suspicion that he had been cheated He could not prove it and he took his bad luck in silence but such an experience Is never conducive to sweet temper and John when he woke next morning after a restless night was in a very morose and uncharitable mood What should he do go for his mailHestrol led over to the postoffice at once and asked for letters Slade the postmaster was sweeping queertezpperedwith a wrinkled face like a monkeys and a highpitched voice He took no notice of Johns request except to say sharply Come in an hour Now considering the mailbag was at that moment reposing on the coun ter at the back of the room this was a little hard John stood quite still for a minute his wrath rising within him then without deigning to speak again he strode to the bag and break lag the seal prepared to scatter its contents upon the counter Before he could do it the postmaster flew at him bagfromYe cowpunching devil you If there was a shred of law in this God forsaken place Id have ye arrested for robbing the United States mail As it is youll But he got no further for Johns catchingthehe shook him until he was black in the face then tossed him like an empty sack to the other side of the room Slade was up in a moment drawing a revolver John did the same more quickly but he did not fire The post master only carried a little nickel plated pistol five inches long a mere toy beside Ogdens great army Colt Put it up said John quietly This thing is not worth a life He lower ed his own pistol as he spoke when from behind there came a sharp ping of a rifle bullet and the postmaster staggered against the wall falling up

Woman Lawyer Who is Friend of the Penniless Prisoner Fifty years of her life spent in help ing others to freedom That is the record upon which Marilla Ricker one of the greatest women philan thropists of the country may look back upon as long as she lives Keen knowledge of the law a supreme sense of justice and money to spend where and when she will are the three things which have helped Mrs Ricker to open the gates for thousands of accused persons and per mit them to go again into the light of the world for another try at life Fra Elbertus that interesting man whose picturesque haunt at East Aurora is a garden spot has said that Justice is a commodity and the price is high Not so where Mrs Ricker is concerned The unfortunate man or woman who finds himself or her self In the prisoners dock and calls for aid from this public spirited wo man may pay if the money is there if not Mrs Backer sees the case through goes on to the next one with never a thought of the unpaid justice billIn the long fifty years during which Mrs Ricker has worked un MARILLA CICKEli ceasingly for the acquittal or release of accused persons she bas Known every class of criminal from the mur derer down to the tough brought up for petit larceny She has known gamblers and thieves great and small women of the streets and men about town but for all of these she has found place in her heart and her promise to see them through has done more for many a man and woman than the services of a hundred clergymen Mrs Richer does not pray with her clients She brings to bear that great common sense in which at that time sound argument rather than religious prating does more for the cause of a criminal in the dock and brings to the courts mind a clearer insight into the case right then before him Mrs Richer has a unique person ality She is tall rather mannish wears her iron grey hair short and by her ready wit infectious laugh and clear insight makes everybody about her forget that she is a woman permanent

Bughouse Beyond a doubt Everybody who knows her loves her those who do not love her do not know her And there are plenty of people who do not know Manila Ricker because their mental processes run on a

the Department of Agriculture GUY ELLIOTT MITCHELL Pocket gophers would be most for idable animals were they enlarged the size of the prehistoric dinosaur lelr teeth are huge in proportion to eir heads and their bifurcated front aws are strong sharp as eagle talons id extraordinarily long The gopher pwever Is a little animal yet because his abundance and exceeding in istry he becomes more than a nuis tcea menace in factto many farm g communities Pocket gophers infest all the States id Territories west of the Mississippi id parts of Illinois Wisconsin Flora Georgia and the greater part of exico All the species live under round in ramifying tunnels and all ing to the surface quantities of earth hich is heaped up in the shape of ounds The habits of these animals e everywhere much the same Throughout their range pocket goph s are very destructive to crops much tore so than moles They eat the roots fruit trees and in this way some mes ruin whole orchards They eat oth root and tops of clover alfalfa rasses grains and vegetables and are specially harmful to potatoes and ther tuberous crops In addition to this they throw up innumerable rounds of earth in meadows pastures nd grain fields which cover and de troy far more of the crop than is Ither eaten by the animals or killed THE POCKET GOPHER by having the roots cut off These mounds also prevent close mowing so that much of the hay crop is lost while the pebbles they contain often break or injure farm machinery The loss due to gopher mounds in the clover tnd alfalfa fields in some of the West fcrn states has been conservatively esti cropingophers abound they are by far the of the farmers anim tl gophers may be destroyed by poison by traps and by the use of carbon bisulphid Poisoning Pocket Gophers Poisoning with strychnine is the klllingthesethe least expenditure of money and recomltnendsnine has several advantages its act- on is sure its deadly character is known to most persons and its bitter taste is an additional safeguard against tnistaking it for a harmless drug Strychnia sulphate is the most conven ient form of the poison since it is treely soluble in hot water and In the Natural juice of vegetables used as bait to disguise its bitterness so that ro dents may not be deterred from eating the baits sugar is often employed or the strychnine may be mixed with its own bulk of commercial saccharine ft sugar syrup poisoned with strych bine may be used with excellent re fcults It is prepared as follows Dissolve an ounce of strychnia sul phate in a pint of boiling water Add a pint of thick sugar syrup and stir thoroughly The syrup is usually eccuted by adding a few drops of oil of anise but this is not essential If preserved in a closed vessel the syrup will keep indefinitely The above quantity Is sufficient to poison a half bushel of shelled corn or other grain corn recommended the cereal being steeped In hot water and allowed to soak over night It is then drained and soaked for several hours in the poisoned syrup Before using corn meal may be added to take up the excess of moisture maybemeans of a knife into small pieces of potato carrot or sweet potato or into entire raisins or dried prunes A sin gle large crystal or several small ones is enough for each bait Raisins are especially recommended because they are easily handled and contain enough sugar to the bitter ness of the ooisoniThe prepared baits are placed In the underground runways of the gophers and are conveniently handled with a spoon A stout dibble is used to make holes Into the runways Having located the runways by use of the dibble it is moved from side to side to make the soil firm about the hole and then withdrawn A piece of the poisoned potato or raisin or a teaspoonful of the poisoned corn is dropped into the hole which is left open Some farmers prefer to cover the holes but the exper ience of the Agriculture Department is against such practice By this method little labor Is necessary and the operator soon acquires skill in finding the runways The bait should be placed in the main runways and not in the short laterals near the mounds If placed in the laterals the animals are likely to cover It with findingitto 40 acres of badly infested land In carefullydone are active all the animals should be destroyed by the first application of the poison Trapping Pocket Gophers Trapping is a successful method when followed Intelligently and persist ently It is especially adapted to small fields orchards and gardens where only a few of the animals are present but in the case of large areas that are badly infested the method involves too much labor For trapping an ordinary No 0 steel trap may be employed but there are a number of special gopher traps on the market that are better adapted for general use In using the ordinary steel trap the first step is to make an opening into the main tunnel The trap should then be sunken so that the jaws are level with the bottom of the runway and lightly covered with green clover or alfalfa or grass or even loose soil care being taken that these do not clog under the pan or trigger No bait is required The holes should be just large enough to receive the trap and should be covered so as almost to exclude the light Carbon Bisulphid Carbon bisulphid has been employed for killing pocket gophers and under favorable conditions its use is recom mended If tho burrows are extensive or the soil dry the gases are dissipated so rapidly that a large quantity of the liquid is required to kill the animals and the method becomes top expensive If however the burrows are simple and and the soil moist bisulphid may be used successfully For pocket gophers an ounce of the liquid for each burrow is sufficient The carbon bisulphid is poured over a bunch of cotton rags or other waste material and this quickly pushed Into the burrow which should be closed at onc- eCoOperation Necessary premisestraps Unless however the entire community unites In active and intelli gent cooperation on the destruction of the animals the cleared area will be sooner or later invaded from neighbor ing premises and the work of destruction must be repeated Cooperation only will effect a radical cure When For Farm Well exterminationare attempted careful attention must be given to waste lands along fences streams public highways and rail roads Such places are favorite haunts of the animals because In them are found loose sandy soil moisture and succulent roots for food It Is from such resorts that adjoining farms are often restocked with

Blanchard U S Geological Survey More than 40 per cent of the farm wells so far examined in this State have been found to be polluted This is a significant statement made by the director of a State Board of Health laboratory in which several thousand well waters have been examined It helps to explain why the death rate from typhoid fever is greater in the country than in the city It is a popular notion of city folk that a vacation in the country is a safeguard against all tho diseases to which the flesh is heir physicians recognize this when they send their patients away from the city The country life is unquestionably tho ideal one the popular cry back to nature has a large measure of justification yet there are thousands of people who return from such an outing consumed with typhoid fever Why should this be true Typhoid an Index to Water Purity A century of experience has shown that the typhoid rate in any place is a good index of the purity of the water supply at that place Therefore when we find that the typhoid rate in the country is higher in the aggregate than in the city it can be fairly assumed that country water supplies are not as safe as city supplies and this in spite of the fact that many of our city waters are notoriously bad The state from which the above mentioned testi mony comes is a typical one so far as its proportion of rural pollution is con cerned and that there is no reason to believe that if the matter were investi gated in other states the conditions of farm wells would be in any degree superiorIn with its investigations of the character of water supplies the United States Geological Survey has noted repeatedly that typhoid fever is continuously prevalent in many rural sections In some cases this condition yearsthatas one of the ordinary incidents of life comIvirulence The facts are that there are comparatively few farm wells located at points not subject to local by Their Wells It is commonly observed that nearly every farmer believes in the purity of his well water especially if the well has been in use for believedjthe bytyphoidcass that a well Is used even after its taste and odor ought to be sufficient to demonstrate that it is polluted A notable instance occurred not long since in which a certain farmer could not use the water from his well if it were drawn up by a pump but if a Farm Well Located on and Free From Contamination well sweep were used and the water taken from the surface no disagreeable features were noted It was found upon examination that the sink drain which had been in use for generations passed close to the well and a large part of the drainage emptied into it This organic matter settled to the bottom of the well and became putrid Whenever the pump was used the v ater containing this foul matter was drawn from the lower part of the well while that obtained from the top by means of the well sweep was above the contamination and did not give evi dence of disagreeable odor or taste although it contained in solution a large amount of filthy matter The deplorable feature of this situation is that it requires in the majority of cases only the exercise of common sense in the selection of a point at which a safe well may be sunk The accompanying illustrations show safe and unsafe well locations That showing the improper location is thoroughly typical of conditions which may be found repeatedly in rural dis tricts It is probable that typhoid fever will prevail in the country as long as the habit is common of sinking a well in a convenient rather than in a safe place Curing Persimmons From a report recently prepared by David G Fairchild an explorer of the Department of Agriculture it appears that persimmons as they are eaten in Japan are as firm in texture as a Northern Spy apple free from as tringency and of a delicious flavor They are not allowed to ripen to the squashy consistency of the fruit as it is eaten in America Investigations as to Japanese methods of curing per simmons show that the Japanese put the persimmons in sake Japanese beer casks as soon as the casks are emptied The heads of these casks are Immediately replaced and the pack age made airtight In from 5 to 15 days according to weather conditions the persimmons are cured and can be removed and marketed keeping in a firm edible condition for a long period Forcing Rhubarb Experiments have shown that the most satisfactory results in cultivating rhubarb are attained by growing the roots from seed and forcing when the plants are one year old Drying the roots has been found to havethe same effect as freezing Either drying or freezing serves the same purpose as a long rest which is otherwise required and the product is more vigorous FORCED AND UNFORCED RHUBARB When thus grown in darkness tne leaf blade is greatly reduced the green color is wholly absent the tex ture is more crisp and delicate due to a lessened development of woody fiber the skin is much thinner than when grown in light the water con tent is increased 6 to 10 per cent and the flavor is generally improved Rhubarb thus grown commands a fancy price Strong Light Injurious to Plants Strong light has been found in some instances to hinder the growth of pollen tubes of plants This is thought to be the reason why tomatoes and cucumbers do not bear fruit in mid summer in Arizona Strong direct sun light in summer also prevents the plant leaves from assuming the usual green color Thus strawberry plants iin Arizona are yellow for about three months in summer even when grown under shade of cheese cloth When grown on the north side of a dense shade of sorghum or cotton the plants remain green and dense all summer and are probably the most vigorous in the garden Telephones in the Forests The usefulness of the telephone becomes more and more apparent as its territory of operation is extended into remote corners of the globe Nowadays the traveler in the heavily wooded sec tions of the north country is amazed when he sees how the march of pro gress has extended in the shape of telephones in the forest Useful as the telephone is in the city where the steps it saves could some times be compensated for by the use of the automobile the electric car or the fast express it is far more useful in the forest where are none of these conveniences and where the canoe or bateau is the common vehicle of travel In logging operations the telephone now plays a most important part The dams along the river are built not only to hold water against a time of drought but also to control the flood so that the river flow may be properly regu lated To this end a considerable crew of men is kept at the dams all the tim to open or close the gates on short notice Before the telephones came Into use instructions to the dam crew were conveyed up or down the river by relays of men stationed at frequent in tervals along the banks and the mes sage was shouted from one to another The telephone lines are being extended every year and it will not be long before telephones are almost as common in the woods as thev are in the city Recently the telephone has been called Into use to aid the wood
