OVER- ROUNDSTON Is Editor Signal We are greatly pleased that a subject so vitally important to our community has been found worthy of favorable notice in your paper The writer has for ten years past in season and out of season urged the necessity and importance to the whole county of a good substantial bridge over Roundstone at Orlando The Fis cal courts and county authorities have invariably regarded the proposition with favor The young men at present composing the county court are highly in favor of rIIfound every where and especially 111 the mountain communities- It is becoming apparent to all ac quainted with the conditions that the Roundstone region and th vt portion of the county lying east Of Roundstone are becoming through the great timber and mineral pro auctions the most important por vitalIconsideration to the Crooked creek and Brush creek regions is easier communication with the West side During a considerable portion of the year these virtuallycut off from the West side of Roundstone I speak from exper ience Two weeks ago mail and other necessary matters required a trip to Orlando Roundstoue and Brush creek out of banks How shall I get there Two miles ride over a mountain path anda mile walk on the tias and across a dan gerous bridge and I get to Orlando In this condition it requires about two days before the creek is safely fordable In case court Js in lesion or any important matter to be areINow at ho very great expense the roads from Brush Creek and Crooked Creek can be brought to getber on the left bank of Round stone and one bridge made to ac commodate both regions Why shall not this be done It is evi dent that it ought to be done Several times you have made in quiry in your paper How best to advance the interests of the coun ty I have given no attention to these inquiries since my ideas ate somewhat radical 1 do my own thinking and express my own o pinions hence moss back orientals et cetera set me down as a crank What we need is

page of history has been light I ed up by some fair face that has brought a litile human interest into the dry and cold calculations of Kings and politicians Butony was not the last politcian wbose course was influenced by beauty Think of the basutiful P Louisa of Prussia jesting with Na poleon for a kingdom I knew that I was to see the most beauti ful Queen in existence said Na poleon to Talleyrand after a ban quet given in her honor but I have found the most beautiful Queen and at the same time the most interesting woman in the world And Louisa had won from him the restoration of

picture of Madame the beautiful Henrietta Stuart oungest daughter of Charles I Who married the Duke of OrleansI The features seem hard a n d the expression somewhat stately she would appear a woman more of brain than tenderness In reality she had a sparkling wit with that wonderful gift of person al magnetism All men loved and most women adored her wrote a gallant Frenchman in his mem oirsLife in the French court was a continual round of pleasure and the days were passed in ballets and theatricals In the morning Madame would drive out with her ladies to be escorted on their return by King Louis XIV and his court on horseback After supper they would all drive out accompanied by Lullis violins to watch the moonlight on the water and talk the moonshine of lovers Five years later Madame was the Kings trusty adviser and the only medium of communication between him and her brother Charles 11 It was in the spring of 1670 that she brought about that somewhat infamous Secret Treaty ot Dover that made Charles a Roman Catholic and plunged England into wat with HotlandIThat ames power The sequel gasthly and dramatic A wasj weeks later she was at St the flush of high spirits at her suc

As the pages are turned the pro tiait of a lady in a brocaded dress appears a face with a very deep forehead and expressionless lips This is the famous Madame Pompadour Her birth Iwas verllI humble

Ambassadors and treating with Kings Rebufled by Frederick the Great this amazing woman made overtures to Maria Theresa of Austria to divide his kingdom between them and sitting in her summer house she gayly arranged with a couple of diplomatists the reportion of Europe M oreover but fcr the freedom she gove to her personal likes and dislikes it is not improbable that she would have accomplished some of the lass whd of her schemes Her dramatio end has often been told In the midst of a discussion on affairs of state as she sat roug ed and powdered in her chair the cure who was with her rose to

have to be sacrificed to the mad rage of the revolution Angelica Kaufman was the child ofa Tyrolese peasant who made her way bythe force of her artistic gifts as well as her beauty She was one of the original members of the Royal Academy Like many a beautiful woman who never be comes famous she was married sej cretly to an adventurer who pass ed himself off ns Count Frederick de Horn Too late she discovered that he had been a footman to that person and no more and for some 10 years she was blackmailed by this adventurer A beauty of the late Georgian era was Lady Palmerston whose protrait was

tropheAlamo Was the Scene of the Most Terrific Fight of Early Days of Texas Through the command of a consider able sum of money a Texas woman has been enabled to save to her native state and to the United States one of the most noted relics of Texan and Mexican War times The historical Alamo an old fort originally a mon astery and the scene of one of the most thrilling incidents of the Mexican War was about to be sold and the ground utilized in the erection ot- a modern hotel The lesson taught by the handful of Americans who held the Alamo rather than surrender appealed so strongly to Miss Clara Driscol a successful author of magazine stories that she made an offer of sixty thousand dol lars for the property and it was ac purchaseMissmonument to the heroism of Texan soldiers had been destroyed it would have made it impossible for her to live in the state devoted as she is to it Al most immediately after the historical fort came into her hands the people of Texas woke up to the situation A bill was passed by the state legislature proP1ertyappointing her honorary custodian of the Alamo For some time Miss Driscol has been writing short stories concerning Texas and Mexico life her first book IIMISS CLARA MONEY DRISCOLIThe Girl of La Gloria being placed on the market within the past year A Mexican Opera Partly on account of her intense in terest in the Texas country and its people and partly because this is a subject heretofore untouched in either literature or drama she conceived the Idea of writing an opera in which there should be only Mexican scenes and characters Through the cooperation of men well versed in methods of producing operas the whole story was put into shape Miss Driscol had collected a number of Mexican songs and dances and folk lore music all of the greatest value in the arrangement of a suitable musical setting Inspired by these the musical composer of the opera was en abled to gain the best results so that the actual character of the music as well as the costumes and scenery makes the play typically American The first night Mexicana was produced one of the principals a woman carried out the timehonored associa tion of senoritas sombreros and ciga rettes by appearing on the stage smok ing one of these tiny rolls Miss Dris col immediately sought the stage manager and remonstrated stating that the better class of Mexican women do not smoke contrary to the general im pression that all women in tropical countries indulge in the habit thereafter this seemingly necessary adjunct was removed from the opera Miss Driscol has travelled extensively visiting almost every country on the globe When the Spanish Amer ican War broke out she was in Spain and while most of her American associates made haste to leave as a matter of safety she stayed for six months longer assuming a Spanish name and living as a Spanish woman That this was possible for her to accomplish is due to her brunette complexion her black hair and her brilliant blade eyes She might easily pass as a daughter of anyone of the Latin countries The history of the Alamo Is one which must fire the imagination and patriotism of every son and daughter of liberty Already famous were the pioneer scouts and warriors who entrenched themselves in that redoubt and yet more famous and glorious became their memory after the sanguin ary and unequal fight Men were they heroes and intrepid characters sur rounded by a vast horde of savage Mexicans with many an old score to settle yet not one thought of surren der apparently entered their souls The last of them was killed by Mexican bullets but not until they had made a fearful accounting among the swarming hosts of the enemy The tragic story of the Alamo will go down in history as one of the greatest of battles and Texas and the Nation owes a lasting debt of gratitude to the woman who has saved its crumbling walls and twrrets Will Sec Snakes Serpent rings broaches bangles and necklaces are to be

wickedness in Louisville and desiring to do missionary work there wanted a list of the unsaved men and women of that town Postmaster Bak er it is stated forwarded a city di rectory with a letter saying that the directory contained 250000 names and he was certain that this plan would afford everybory in Louisville a square deal It has been remarked that if the soul saver desires a more

Older Employees Who Have Spent Best Years of Life in Serving Uncle Sam The blow which the older govern ment clerks at Washington have for sometime feared is about to fall and if the House of Representatives follows its apparent intention the clerks of 65 years old and over will have their pay cut from 25 to 50 percent The investigation carried on by the Appropriation Committee shows that over 2000000 is annually paid to clerks over C5 years of age and that if the plan proposed is carried out over 75 percent of these will be reduced This will mean that many faithful employees of the government who have grown old in the service of their coun try will suddenly find their incomes cut nearly in half It is often stated that the average government job is an easy one with short hours and good pay so that there is something of a disinclination throughout the country to feel or ex press much sympathy for the govern ment clerk who is reduced or per chance dismissed for any reason As a matter of fact however these pOS- Itions in Washington are most trying and unprofitable unless we except a few cases in which the work is tech nical with the possibility of leading to better things outside in the com mercial world and after a few years of service leave the incumbent with out the capability of making his way in business if suddenly thrown upon his own resources Most of the government bureaus are large offices where a clerk may be en gaged for years in a single line of work his knowledge and experience although narrow and circumscribed thus becoming valuable to the govern ment In the meantime his salary has been barely commensurate with his living expenses and although some of the government employees with thrifty wives may have been ablo to buy a modest home the proportion of these is not large Then after twenty years of confining and uninspiring labor comes his dis charge and he finds himself completely out of touch with all former busi ness knowledge and relations unable to earn as much in a new line of life as could his recently graduated son This would mean that the man who has entered government service in middle life and through meritorious effort and faithful endeavor has worked up to a salary of 1600 or 1800 would in his ripe years and experience be thrown out on the world like an old horse who has served his master faithfully but has lost the vigorous step and stylish action of a younger animal Had this man been connected with a big com mercial house for those twenty years his business associates would delight to honor him with the increased salary due to his experience and wisdom which had done so much toward build ing up the structure of their worldly interestsThe has been freely ex pressed upon the floor of the House however that it is not believed that a majority of its members will favor any drastic measure of cutting down the income of faithful clerks One plan dis cussed by the House Committee embraces a provision that when any employee shall have reached the age of 70 years he shall be immediately dismissed While 1000 might appeartobea rea sonable living In the smaller towns in Washington where expenses are so heavy it is a small sum for a man of family Old and honored government employees from the administration of Washington down have resigned or died in the nations service but Con gress in its wisdom in these days of un wonted national prosperity seems to be pursuing extraordinary methods to increase the efficiency of the service and to reduce the federal expenditures Anent the subject the Washington Post says What a kind and benefi cent government it would be that would cut a faithful servant who had served it for yearsnnd who is as effi cient a clerk now as he was ten years ago because he has reached the age of sixtyfive What an inducement to faithful service Whai a splendid ex ample of the merit system But it probably serves a man right for reaching the age of sixtyfive and be- Ing still vigorous and faithful and capa ble In the public service The Speaker of the House the honor able Joseph G Cannon who will be seventy years old on the 7th of May next should see to it that his friends on the Appropriation Com mittee take a back track on this Osler itlsh proposition If the provision should not be stricken out in the House the twentysix Senators who are over sixtyfive and the three others who will be sixtyfive before this year is out ought to be able to give it a quietus in the Senate Various are the reasons given for the placing of the two buttons on the back of a mans coat One is that they are a survival of buttons which were used on the eighteenth century riding coat The coat tails were thus buttoned up when the rider was on horseback Tallest

Victims of Electric Chair Can Be Brought Back to Life To be able to restore life after electrocution is the claim of J M Berger an expert electrician who states that by his method a person electrocuted at one of our prisons and pronounced dead by the attending physicians may be restored to life His only requirements are that he be allowed to take the body within fifteen minutes after life is pronounced extinct and that the brains be not baked or the lungs car bonat d Mr Berger states that he himself received more volts than are supposed to be necessary to kill a man and that he knows of cases where as high as 3000 arid 4000 volts have gone through mens bodies and they have been re stored to life and health He cites as an illustration the case of Joseph Averell a Baltimore line man who was caught in an alternating current of 3000 voltage and thrown from a pole to the middle of the street He was removed at once to the city hospital and emergency treatment was quickly applied Both of his hands were burned to a crisp and his skull was almost fractured by the fall to the street but he recovered Mr Bergers method is very simple and one that he claims may be followed by any person who is coolheaded and not likely to become excited He lays the victim of electrocution on his back with a rolled coat or blanket under his shoulders so that the head is allowed to fall backwards The operator should kneel behind the head of the patient facing him grasp the elbows and draw them well over the head so as to bring them almost together above and hold them tfiere for two or three seconds He should then carry the elbows down to the sides and front of the chest firmly compressing it by throwing his weight upon the elbows After two or three seconds the arms should be carried above the head and the same manoeuversshouldberepeated- at the rate of fifteen or sixteen times a minute The operators must remem ber that the manipulation must be ducted with methodical conII

made as a matter of fact in sunshine We went into the old Cathedral with its three bells all in a row and one smaller bell hanging above one of these being the oldest bell in the United States We also visited three of the principal churches in the citythe pretty Episcopal the unique Methodist and the beautiful Presby terian church the last a memorial built by Mr Flagler for his only daughter Fort

sidewalks and one has to hug the walls in order not to be run over second story verandas are not uncom mon and one can easily shake hands with his neighbor on the opposite ver anda or balcony One of the very oldest houses is built of xochina a natural shell conglomerate and has a game roof covered with moss from which has sprung a growth of bright green ten inches high At night it is an interesting sight to saunter through these narrow pictures que streets lined on each side with shops where the curiosity seeker could find alligators stuffed in every size from the little ones just coming out of their shells to the great big fellows that made you shudder they looked so lifelike Hundreds of pretty things in palmetto shells etc were also exhibit ed All of this we saw in the rain

A BYWAY OF ST AUGUSTINE Each day we drove through the deep sand the horse just walking but it was lovely lazing along after this fash ion through pine woods tall straight trees with a sheaf of leaves

the Lake Region of the state Colonel T has a beautiful home among the pines and there I plucked myfirstthe fragrant blossom the green orange and the ripe yellow fruit all growing on one tree One of the finest groves we visited contained 1000 trees cover ed with oranges while many of the trees were full of bloom These brides flowers look like white wax stars among the rich dark varnished leaves and the trees met overhead forming arches under which we droveone of the most attractive sights imaginable We pulled all the fruit and blossoms we wanted It is a fascinating experi ence to stand under a large orange or grapefruit tree and look up through the branches the leaves so rich and green with golden globes hanging from them their weight sometimes bending the branches to the ground and all

grows exactly upside down Eustis Park is a pretty place just a drive through pine woods almost clothed in Spanish moss They bury this moss in the sand to rot off the out side the inside fiber making a good substitute for hair which is used in the manufacture of mattresses There are several factories I am told in the State which make fine mattresses out of this moss In the Park the gray squirrels chase each other up and down the branches and we counted 14 in less than two minutes The blue herons fly continually back and forth and the little ponds through the park are full of white water lilies

to Allow Stockmen to Fence and Graze Difiicul y Lies in Protect ing Rights of Settlers There is a strong movement afoot and several bills have been introduced in this Congress to provide a system of renting or leasing the public graz ing lands of the West at a small charge of from one to five cents per acre There are some 300000000 acres ot western public lands which come under the general classification of Grazing Lands some of which are extremely barren in character almost desert and are capable of sustaining live stock at the rate of only about one head of cattle to 30 or 40 acres other lands where there is more rainfall are much better for grazing purposes ana some of the best of them are capable of sustaining a steer on probably 2 3 or 5 acres Many of the latter class are however suitable for homesteads The difficulty has always been as it is today to provide a rental plan which will give stock raisers a sufficient con trol of the land to warrant them in fencing it and improving its grazing capacity at the same time leaving the conditions such that the settler ana prospective homesteader will at all times have free access thereto Under the improved methods of farm ing advocated by the Department of Agriculture and the new drought re sisting crops which are being intro duced by that Department large tracts hitherto considered fit for nothing but grazing are being constantly brought under the head of agricultural land The climatic conditions of the inter mountain region are extremely varied and the settler where he is not hin dered by stock growing interests which are naturally against any settling and development of their regions is con stantly encroaching upon their graz ing domain and finding new localities here and there of a very great aggre gate extent where he can acquire a successful foothold to carry on agri cultural operations The Lacey Leasing Bill One bill in particular las been intro duced by Chairman Lacey of the Public Lands Committee of the House and is apparently intended to protect small stockmen as well as to provent any restrictions against the settler In the first place it provides that no corpora tion can lease government land A man who had a homestead or owns a piece of land may lease as much as 3200 acres which in most grazing localities not be an excessive amount The measure provides that such leases shall not be transferred and that where they include watering places there shall be left open a right of way for other stockmen to pass through the and to use the water for their stock It also leaves the leased land open at all times to home stead entry by actual settlers On the face of it this looks equitable and as though it might be administered so as not to work to the detriment of settlement and of the small stock holder On the other hand it seems apparent that it would be exceedingly difficult to prevent a big cattle corpor ation from hiring a dozen cowboys to take up homesteads in own names erecting shanty residences as has been done in thousands of cases in the West and simply to hold their claims and 3200 acres each of leased land for the benefit of their employers so that a single cattle bar on might easily acquire the use of 30 or 40 thousand acres Hard for the Homesteader- It is also not at all certain that once holding a lease to the land and with a fence around it the cowboy might not bulldoze intending settlers into passing on to some less hostile region No homebuilder unless he be made of ex ceedingly stern stuff cares to attempt making a home in the face of a Win chester or of threats that if he at tempts a settlement his fence wires will be cut his grass all eaten off and the place be made so hot for him that he will wish that he had never gone into the cow country This course has been pursued by the stockmen with great success in many western sections even where the settler was trying to make a home upon free public land where the cattlemen had no shadow of legal right to fence or hold it That the legal leaseright to fence the land beiinvokedit will be possible toframe a leasing bill which will give some pro tection to the overcrowded grazing lands and at the same time afford the honest settler an advantage at all times to establish a home is considered to be a dubious question Chairman Laceys leasing bill does not seem to be much of an improvement upon the measures previously brought before Congress Unless the small stockman and the homesteader with 25 or 50 head of cattle or a band of 100 or 200 sheep feels that he is to be protected and not driven out of business by the big out fits he will kill this bill as he has killed all such previous bills which have been presented Viewed from a broader standpoint the danger to the country lies in tying up under lease large areas of fertile country which are suitable for home making under their present natural condition without irrigation and which are gradually settled as further know ledge is gained of them and better methods of farming them are introduced STARVATION SELDOM OCCURS Doctor Proves Theory That Terror More Frequently Causes Death Dr Richard A Terhune dean of the physicians of Passaic N Y by whom he was always spoken of affectionately as Doctor Dick died at his home re cently of intestinal cancer He had not aten anything for over a month and o the last bantered his brother prac titioners on the fact that he was a liv ing example of his pet theory that no one would die of starvation if he had plenty of water to drink The aged physician who was a stal wart man became ill about seven months ago He speedily diagnosed his ailment as intestinal cancerand gave out a fatal prognosis of his own case All the Passaic physicians and scares more from the neighboring town and cities called on him in the months of his illness with many suggestions as to treatment but he turned a deaf ear to all and only employed such pallia FROM ANASTASIA ISLANDOLD FORT MARION would land their thereupon their tive measures as suggested themselves to himself and his son Dr Perry A a time Doctor Dick found that he could no longer retain food and gave up eating For five weeks nothing except water and now and then a little medicine passed his lips One Sunday night several physicians dropped in to see him and he took the opportunity to enlarge upon his non starvation theory You see he began with a smile I cannot retain anything but water yet I am strong and able to move freely about in bed I am proving my old theory that no one ever really dies of hunger Socalled death from hunger is simply due to terror if there is plenty of water to be had- I will call your attention to th case of a young girl that came under my own observation She was ill with a disease which was pronounced in curable by skilled physicians That girl did not eat anything for forty eight days except about half a soda cracker a day Did she die Not a bit of it On the contrary she got entirely well and in the fortyeight days when she did not eat she pursued the eve tenor of her ways went to parties and danced too THE MAGIC STORY I was sitting alone in the cafe and had just reached for the sugar prepara tory to putting it into my coffee While I dreamed and sipped the door opened and closed admittingSturtevant- Sturtemnt was an undeniable failure but withal an artist of more than ordinary talent As I raised my eyes to his I was conscious of mild surprise at the change in his appearance He was not dressed differently yet there was something new and strange in his appear ance I noted the brightness of his usual lackluster eyes and the health ful hopeful glow upon his cheek with increasing amazement Have you lost a rich uncle I askedNo he replied calmly but I have found my mascot Brindle bull or terrier I inquired Currier said Sturtevant at length I see that I have surprised you It is not strange for I am a surprise to my self I am a new man a different man and the alteration has taken place in the last few hours Do you know an artist who pos sesses more talent than I he asked presently No Do you happen to know anything in the line of my pro fession that I could not accomplish if I applied myself to it No Tomorrow my new career begins Within a month shall have a bank account Why Because I have discovered the secret of success The Strange Story Yes he continued my fortune is made I have been reading a strange story and since reading it I feel that my fortune is assured It will make your fortune too All you have to do is to read it You have no idea what it will do for you You amaze me I said wondering Wont you tell me the story I should like to hear it Certain I mean to tell it to the whole world This morning I was starv ing I had gone to three of the papers for which I had done work and had been handed back all that had submitted Then I found the story and read it- But what is the story Sturtevant Wait let me finish I took those same old drawings to other editors and every one of them was accepted at onceThe waiter interrupted us at that moment informing Sturtevant that he was wanted at the telephone and with a word of apology the artisl left the table Five minutes later I saw him rush out into the sleet and wind and disappearOne on the street I encounter ed Avery a former college chum then a reporter on one of the evening papers Hello old chap he said hows the world using you Still on space Yes I replied bitterly with pros pects of being on the town shortly But you look as if things were coming your way Tell me about it His Friends All Hear It Things have been coming my way for a fact and it is very remarkable You know Sturtevant dont you Its all due to him I was plumb down on my luck when I met Sturtevant He told me a story and really old man it is the most remarkable story you ever heard it made a new man of me It must be a remarkable story I said incredulously Sturtevant men tioned it to me once I have not seen him since Where is he now He has been making war sketches in Cuba at two hundred a week hes just returned It is a fact that every body that has heard that story has done well since There are Cosgrove and Phillips friends of mineyou dont know them Sturtevant told them the story and they have experi enced the same results that I have and they are not the only ones either Do you know the story I asked Will you try its effect upon me Certainly with the greatest plea sure in the world Excuse me a minute will you I see Danforth over there Back in a minute old chap He nodded and smiled and was gone I saw him join the man whom he had designated as Danforth My atten tion was distracted for an instant and when I looked again both had dis appearedIf truth be told I was hungry My pocket at that moment contained exactly five cents just enough to pay my fare uptown but insufficient also to stand the expense of filling my stomach There was a night owl 1ehad frequently stood up

faces of a crowd of people who had heard the shot The sheriff beckoned to two men Take him to the casa boys and stay by promptness of action and lack of official ceremony in Western trials by jury is one of the features of fron tier life At eight oclock in the morn ing John Ogden had been a free man by noon he was on trial for his life The courthouse was the largest room in the hotel a convenient spot for the judge was the hotel proprietor Johns trial lasted exactly two hours Sheriff Lassiter our worthy officer of law as Judge Sanderbach explained to the eastern visitors assembled to enjoy the ceremony gave his evidence with a dignity and selfrestraint that was much admired He stated briefly how when passing the postoffice he had heard the sounds of a struggle inside followed by a revolver shot and enter ing had discovered the deceased in a dying condition the prisoner standing over him pistol in hand Long before this Ogden had re covered himself It is a lie he blurted out in re spouse to a bland and courteous question from the judge a foul lie from beginning to end Do you say so now echoed the Sheriffs attorney the only lawyer in town That I reckon will be most j interesting news to the jury Please tell us cowboy gave his account of the incident and then the lawyer passed a very pleasant and profitable half SWUNG SHOULDER hour in crossexamination during which Ogdens previous assault upon the Sheriff was introduced into the in a manner which completely ruined any chance of acquittal he might otherwise have had Ultimately 1 verdict of Guilty of murder was given by the jury and sentence of death by hanging solemnly passed by the judge the execution to take place at sunrise the next morning The prisoner was then marched back to his cellanempty shantythe court adjourned

dressed and insignificant of men in appearance Clincher was the richest man in the country and his dollars had been accumulated by twenty years hard work endurance of much hardship and constant danger to life and limb A queer bit there he muttered to himself as he stepped out of the hotel blinking in the bright sunlight Burt is paying off scores for that pounding wonderwell well shaking himself what does it matter to me Hello Jose GallegosA had been laid on his arm and a brown face now a sickly yellow with anxiety was eagerly peering into his Oh Senor Edwardo me want to speak you bad Ah caramba very very bad The boy was mad with excitement and Ed a kindly man with Mexicans and especially with this one soothed him like a child There there fool he said in Spanish Whats to do Wait now dont try firing off like a pistol at half cock Come into the store and talk Jose yielded with a grimance follow ing Mr Clincher to a capacious log and adobe building and once inside he poured forth in the most voluble of Spanish a story that moved both Mr Clincher and his wife who listened with her husband to exclamations ot horror and indignation It appeared flint Jos6s younger brother Maximo a lad of thirteen had been cook house ba 4i4 i C BY ARTHUR PATERSON 6 II servant and general help at the post office and was on the premises this morning When the trouble began ne had secreted himself where he could see all that went on and had been an eye witness to the quarrel had seen Lassiter fire the fatal shot and with great difficulty had contrived to escape detection and capture Terrified he had ridden off to his brother and told him all Jose wishing to save Ogden but knowing the contempt with which the evidence of a Mexican would be treated and the danger to his brother if they had moved in the matter had been in despair until a thought came upon him to seek the help of Mr Clincher who happened to be the banker of the remaining portion of his legacy Clincher paced up and down the room his face growing darker every moment and little Maximo when he was brought in was horribly scared But when Mr Clincher questioned with gentle firm ness he concealed nothing At the end the storekeeper fell into deep thought the Mexicans eagerly watchinghis face It will cost money he said aloud half to himself half to them Why should I spend money on a darned cried Jose the rest of the speech being beyond him I have money Yes me Senor Don Jose Ilario Gallegos All the money that lies with you I will spend to save his lifeevery dollarPshaw you are a fool was the rough rejoinder Your heads turned Whats he to you boy My friend and the dark eyes flash ed Senor he took my part when all others were my enemies and after he took my hand as if he had been a brother I will never forget he took my hand You with a quaint pitying smile you Senor Ed are an Ameri cano you will not understand- Mr Clincher stared at this sudden change of tone but there was no time for puzzling out enigmas Have it as you will boy he said TEN RIFLES WERE TO case Ed little quietly Well share the expense meb be Ill have a letter to write which you must take to Jonathan Hame whos Ogdens boss and told me once Ogden would beat the band for honesty and grit Vamos now It was ten miles to Hames ranch but the Mexicans caught the cattleman just as he was off for a holiday in the Eastern States By sundown he was in Clinchers store That evening the Clincher family supped late They entertained a dozen guests and it was a pleasant sociable supper for all the men were neighbors and friends At the head of the table sat Clincher the host quietandserene- on his right Jonathan Hame the largest owner of cattle in the country a trifle absent in manner but as undis turbed as his friend opposite was a slim hardfeatured man Collett the sheep king and on his right Dan Bacon most successful breeder of horses in New Mexico and so the list went on After the supper Clincher rose quietly from his chair and locked returningtonowAll this time Ogden was locked in the Casa awaiting his fate With his coat rolled up for a pillow he lay on gratingnothing left but dreary bitter des pair Thus thrown back upon his thoughts his mind flew away from his present surroundings over land and sea five thousand miles back to the smoky Lancashire town where he was born and where all he loved in the world were now living His father his brothers his mother here he fhoked and hot tears streamed down his cheeks unchecked She had been a very foolish mother John had been her firstborn and she had petted him snoilt him cuddled him He had repaid her as a willful youner daredevil will by trampling upon her with care less scorn and utterly defying any later attempts at control yet he had loved her passionately and for her temptationI will write he said aloud Some one will lend me a pencil and piece of paper on the way toTramp tramp tramp The guard was walking up and down outside Hark what was that The man had cocked his rifle Another soundhorses a score of them at least a challenge from the guard a curt reply in a voice which Ogden knew then silence fol lowed by the sound of a key turning in the door then Out of this boy Come A tall figure stood in the doorway beckoning Old manHame John gasped Thats me No word on it now There aint time John looked around All about him were mounted men a strange mixture

around him before we throw They wheeled and with John and flame in the centre galloped down the one road Calhoun possessed reaching Sanderbachs hotel in a few minutes Lights were dancing in the windows there people running to and fro in mortal fright for it was said that a party of cowboys mad with drink were about to shoot up the town The scare had just begun and before anyone could leave the place Hame Clincher Collett and Bacon with a force of fifty men were round it in an unbroken ring Judge Sauderbach portly and respectable stepped out upon the porch Behind him on the stairway to the upper story were palefaced visitors The judge a tall finelooking man asked with an injured air of dignified surprise what they wanted The storekeeper answered The Sheriff of this town Judge The Judge smiled He is not here myfriendWe your house room by room Boys Clincher spoke over his shoulder ten of you follow me and I neednt say keep your guns handy He moved a pace nearer and the men behind him gave their rifles a sling forward raising a shriek of terror from the ladies on the stairs Stay sir the Judge said solemnly You shall answer for this to the Gov ernor of this Territory though I can not resist you now He stepped inside a room near the door and the men waited in grim silence At last a tall slouching figure came slowly down the passage into the lighted hall Cover him said Clincher sharply and ten rifles were swung to shoulder and again the ladies shrieked The Sheriff however raised his hands above his head and stood still In a moment they had closed around him in a few more the porch of the Sand erbach Hotel was deserted Meanwhile in the kitchen of Ed Clinchers house collected a small company of men the same who had supped there some hours earlier Before them stood Burt Lassiter guarded At a table in the center of the room sat- Ed Clincher a Bible at his left hand and a big sixshooter at his right Burt Lassiter he said rising and taking up the Bible swear on this Bible to tell the truth The prisoner advanced and in a husky tone took the oath touching the Bible with his lipsYou are on trial the storekeeper continued before these men who are responsible for his town in right of being the first settlers in the country and having most stake in it You have this day accused an inno cent man of murder and by means or bribery had him condemed to death Now answer this question and re member you are on your oath Who killed Ben Slade The prisoner breathed hard His flabby face was yellow and his fin gers twitched but he held his head high and smiled in Clinchers face John Ogden the man I arrested todayClincher turned his head and made a sign to a man near the door Bring in Maximo Gallegos The Mexican boy came in very frightened but able to give his evidence clearly The prisoner laughed Did you ever know a greaser to tell the truth Call John Ogden John was cool now and spoke short ly to the point When asked if he had any questions Lassiter merely shook his head But he was not smil ing now Ill swear against a thous and oaths I did not Clincher held up his hand Drop that he said sternly Give him the bullet A small conical pellet of lead was shown to the prisoner who started and then tried to smile contemptously- It is a rifle bullet Clincher said very quietly Ogden by your evi dence only carried a revolver Yet the bullet you hold now was found in Slades body and fits your rifle ex actlyA moment of silence while Lassiter tried to speakand failed Answer me again thundered was a low gurgling cry and the Sheriff fell grovelling at Clinchers feetMercy mercy he whispered For Gods sake have mercy and I will Stop Clinchers eyes flashed fire and cast away hands that had clutched his Citizens this man is guilty In your name I condemn

and Princess of Wales have met in the course of their tour through India none presents a more engrossing study than the woman ruler of the State of Bhopal Nawab Sultan Jehan Begum if the London accounts may be regarded as authen tic The Begum is a daughter and a granddaughter of a Begum and between them these three women have ruled for the past sixty years the destinies of a state comprising nearly 7000 square miles of territory and a population of a million people The mother of the present ruler de scended from the famous Dost Moham mad Khan the founder of the Bhopal dynasty She succeeded to the throne in 1SG8 in which year she sent to Queen Victoria a quaint letter ac knowledging her majestys kindness in accepting the dedication of a book written by the Begums mother the enlightened Sikandar describing her pilgrimage to Mecca The book in question is a pictur esque record of an oriental journey containing an appreciation of the char acteristics of that place as seen and understood by an Indian lady The Begum seems to have been particularly struck by the enormous quantities of food which the inhabitants of Mec ca were able to consume She records that they were in the habit of dispos ing of five or six pounds weight per hand per day They appeared to thrive on it how ever for the Begum vouches for the fact that the average man was so ab normally strong that he thought noth ing of carrying a weight of 900 pounds from the street to the top of a house The Begum apparently took a great in terest in building operations in Mec ca for she includes in her book a list of building materials with their cost Loyal to England The loyalty to the British Govern ment to which the present Begums mother referred in her letter to Queen Victoria was strikingly exhibited by the famous Sikandar who ruled dur ing the mutiny At the height of the insurrection a deputation from her army gathered outside the palace and expressed a wish that the Begum would put her self at the head of her men and lead them on to Delhi to exterminate the infidel British The Begum promised to do so but during the night she with a few faithful adherents caused the whole army consisting of about three thousand men all told to be dis armed and their weapons hidden The following day she offered to lead them unarmed to Delhi but the army thought better of it This plucky act probably had a great influence on the trend of events and it undoubtedly saved the British residents at a neigh boring town from massacre Bhopal has always been one of the most friendly of the Indian States So far back as 1778 when Gen Goddard marched across India Bhopal was the only Indian power which showed itself friendly In 1818 the British Government formed an alliance with Bhopal guaranteeing to the Nawab the possession of the State More Liberty for Women The Shah Gehan Begum the daugh ter of Sikandar succeeded in 1868 and proved a most worthy follower of her mother She threw aside the restric tions of the purdah which imposed the strictest seclusion upon Indian women and was always accessible conducting business on her own initia tive with the greatest vigor M Louis Rousselet a French explorer thus de scribes a meeting he had with her many years ago- I had an appointment with Her Highness he wrote and so I called at the palace which is full of European treasures and luxuries In the room into which I was ushered sat a little girl whom I took to be the daugh ter of one of the court nobles and was on the point of addressing her when she rose and with a very stately in clination of her head said I am the Shah Jehan at the same time ex tending a tiny hand covered with jew els When I had somewhat recovered from my confusion I noticed that al though of diminutive stature she had a very handsome intellectual face She wore close fitting pantaloons of gold brocade embroidered jacket and a muslin toque The present Begum still keeps up the restriction of the purdah When she was presented to the Prince of Wales at Indore she was crowned with gold her face veiled behind a burka of light blue and her figure draped in blue of a deeper shade The reign of women in Bhopal is likely to cease with the death of the present Begum for she has two sons and a daughter and the heirapparent is the oldest son THE MAGIC STORY Continued from Page 2 Mr Currier is good for anything he orders he said

poultry raisers In submitting the text to Secretary Wilson Chief Melvin of the Bureau stated that the article was prepared with the special end in view of furthering the purpose of his Bureau to give the raisers of poultry especially the general farmer the best informa tion possible in a very concise form The article is written by G Arthur Bell Assistant Animal Husbandman of the Bureau of Animal Industry Selection of a Variety Pure breeds are desirable says Mr Bell as with these one has a flock of WINNERSIROCKSA PAIR fowls which will produce carouses and eggs of a much more uniform shape color and size than will mongrels all of which aids in finding a ready sale If one already has a flock of mongrel fowls and cannot afford to buy pure breeds he should choose a purebreed male bird of the breed preferred and mate him with a few of the best mon grel females This system if carefully followed for a few years will give a highgrade flock that will be practically as good as purebreds so far as market conditions for dressed fowls and eggs are concerned Choice of variety will depend largely on the purpose for which the fowls are keptwhether eggs alonebotheggs and meat or meat alone is

As sunlight and warmth are essential to the best success with poultry the buildings should face the south A southeastern exposure Is preferable to a southwestern one if a direct southern exposure cannot be ob of House The size of the house will depend almost entirely on the number of birds to be kept If in flocks of forty to sixty about 5 square reet of flour space should be allotted to each hen The building should be high enough for the attendant to avoid bumping his head against the ceiling A House for Fifty to Sixty Fowls The best house for fifty to sixty fowls Is 20 by 14 feet front

conditions vary and there are different methods of feed ing different breeds A good system to follow for winter feeding is mash once a day and grain scattered in the litter twice a day The mash may be fed dry or slightly moist ened When the former it is usually put into a trough or hopper hung against the wall and the fowls allowed access to it at all times The mash fed at the Maine Experi ment

Another mash may be mixed as fol lows in the proportions indicated 100 pounds corn meal 100 pounds ground oats 100 pounds wheat bran Young chickens should be fed a little at a time and often If they given ground food alone there is a great danger of overfeeding Very good results may be obtained by the feeding entirely of cracked grains from the time the chickens hatched until they reach maturity There are on the market many prepared chick feeds con sisting of different mixtures of suitable cracked grains After the chickens are five or six weeks old the prepared chick feed may be dropped and cracked corn cracked wheat hulled oats etc fed to them instead- If the chickens can not get grass provide green feed such as lettuce and SINGLE COMB BUFF LEGHORNS Cock was Awarded First Prize St Louts

reported by Consul Daniels at Sheffield England The conclusions reached are that breed does not govern so much as the laying strain or families of a breed highly developed as egg producers The pen of four Buff Orpingtons led from October 16 to November 16 by producing 49 eggs and again November 16 to December 16 with 120 eggs One thing the present competition shows is the little help it is to birds to be what show enthusiasts call beautifully marked for as often as not it is the ordinary looking competitors birds a show judge would laugh at that have the biggest total of egge to their credit In the winter laying competition what stands a bird in good stead is not that its father was the winner of a medal but that its mother and grandmother were wonderful layers and that its GROUP OF YOUNG LEGHORNS are are male parents also came of a good laying strain Ducks dont need water to thrive There are many farms in this country where thousands of these fowl are raised each year for market and where there is not even a puddle for them to flounder in One of these establish ments is said to furnish 20000 ducks a year Rot the Laying Kind A few days ago a rather bashful young woman went into a Southern grocery store with some chickens to sell She inquired the price of fowls and at the same time put hers on the counter The clerk didnt notice that the chickens feet were tied and asked her if they would lay there She bit her handkerchief turned her head and said No sir they are roosters Extending the Weather Service in order that the work of the Weather Bureau may be of

a great story going around of how Nick Longworth came near to attaining to fame some years ago in connection with horses The story runs according to a prominent horseman that some years ago H M Ziegler of Cincinnati the noted owner of thoroughbreds and an intimate friend of Mr Longworth took the latter down to his Kentucky thoroughbred farm to show him his collection of fine yearlings All of these yearlings were as yet unnamedLongworth said Ziegler as they strolled about the stalls youd better let me name one of these yearlings after you Theyre a swell bunch and almost all of them are wellnigh bound to do something big in the world- I dont mind was Longworths WHITE COCHIN COCK First Prize Bird at New York Show in 1904 reply But Id like to be sure of be stowing my cherished name on a real good one Id hate to have a bad one running in my name My friends of a racing turn would be guying me all the time about my namesakes perform ances Well said Ziegler youre a pretty good judge of a race horse yourself Now here are two of my cracks In these two stalls Ill have em led out into my paddock by one of the stable hands and you can look them over and take your pick of them Whichever one you like the better Ill name after you Done said Mr Longworth and the two yearlings were led into the open They were both fine lookers but Mr Longworth liked the appearance of the larger one of the two the better That one he said pointing to his pick He looks good to me Hes christened Nick Longworth then said Mr Ziegler and the colt was duly named Nick Longworth and regis tered with the Jockey Club under that nameNow the other colt of the pair from which Mr Longworth made his selec tion was afterward named Hermis Sounds kind o familiar to you eh that name Hermis Well I should think it would sound familiar seeing that in the deliberate belief of many of the most astute horsemen in this coun try Hermis was absolutely the finest race horse ever foaled in the United States a speed and distance marvel a bulldog who never knew when he was beaten and an animal worthy to be ranked with the very greatest race horses of all time in this or any other countrySo for Hermis the one that Mr Longworth didnt pick out As for the one that he did pick out and that was named Nick Longworthwell- Nick was worth about 972 as a rac ing proposition and thats about all He could win a selling race once in a while on Thursdays when the wind was sousoueast by nor but hecouldntget out of his own way in running with even fair handicap horses and he lost about twenty times to one win and it really did come to pass that Mr Longworths Cincinnati friends guyed him unmercifully about his namesake horse Mr Longworth never of course told his guying friends that hed actu ally had the chance to get so noble an animal as Hermis named after him He probably felt that the situation was bad enough as it was THE NEGRO AS A FARMER Booker Washington Says He is at His Worst In Large Cites Booker T Washington in an address at Washington D C recently struck a keynote when he stated that The negro is at his worst in the crowded life of a large city and at his best in the rural districts where he owns and cultivates the soil The speaker said the demand in the South for negroes trained for teachers and leaders in the class room and the factory was tremendous but more pressing yet was the demand from the best white people of that section for negroes to take charge of their farms dairies and other industries This de mand is shown he said by the fact that every one of the 525 students who left
