denies the acquisation NO SYMPATHY A farmer from Georgetown Ohio writing to the Enquirer con saysIer readI for the men engaged in the present coal strike Farmers and their hired men do not have an eight hour day and hired men at 14 to 20 per month work right along with their employers from 12 to 14 hours a day the year through with no thought that they are being ill treat ed and no intention of striking and damaging their employers property Young men with good com mon school education will Attend our agricultural colleges fro m to thre years and then accep oneI herdsmen and farm and dairy men at 40 to 50 per month knowing that many times they will be compelled to put in 16 hours a day We see the statement that coal miners get 250 3 4 and even 6 per day of eight hours and we know that even 4 a day will bring in more money than two men can dig out of an average Jonc h1ndled acre tarm valued at 5000 outside of the teams and iraple ments True the farmer has no well dressed walking delegate to con e aronnd and stir up strife between him and his employes and thanks t t the intelligence of hired men on farms ucha walking delegate would get cold comfort from them Themain bodyof working men ev erywhere seem to be sa tisfied with the wages they are getting and such being the case why do they listen to the oily talk of labor agit t tors who are well paid travel in comfort even in luxury smoke fine cgars and give waiters at firstclass hotels 25 cent tips The writer of this anda prominent newspaperman saw one of these agitatorts do the things above mentioned few months ago and two weeks later the newspaper man saw skilled workmen satisfied with the 6 a day pay they were getting called off on a strike because other work men satisfied with the pay they were getting were not being niud as much as the agitators thought they should have Ve may not have right view of the mater and if so would like to be set right by the leaders of the labor movement Instead of talking about sched ulesIscales tonnages and the like and tell what the miners get for a days work how many hours a day they labor and how many days they can work in a month When we know these things we maybe able to see that such strikes as the present are justifiable and so sympathize with the men who are engaged in them- Rheumatic Pains Relieved The quirk relief from rheumatic pains afforded by

April 6 1900 Published every Friday by EDGAR S ALBRIGHT SUBSCRIPTION ONR YEAR IOO Advertising rates made known on application FOR CONGRESS We are authorized to announce JUDGE JOHN W HUGHKS of Mercer Countyas a candidate to rep resent the Eighth Congressional District in Congress to succeed Hon G G Gil bert subject to the action of the Demo cratic party IN this issue appears the an nouuceuent of the Hon John W Hughey of Mercer county as a candidate for Congress subect to the action of the Democrats of the Eighth district The following is what the Hafrodsburg Democrat will say in today issue of Judge HughesLast Saturday Judge John W Hughes of Harrodsburg made his formal entry into the race for Con gress in this district This week his official announcement is made in everyone of the twenty newspapers in the district showing that Judge Hughes is thoroughly in earnest and has gone into the fight to win He is the first man to so enter and his declaration will have great effect upon the aspira tions of many gentlemen who have been given complimentary and gratutious mention in connection with the congressional nomination As stated in The Democrat last week Congressman George G Gil bert of Shelbyville annuonced his final determination not to offer for re election and thereupon Judge Hughes was deluged with urgent requests to offer for thenomination The requests and offers of support from several counties of the district were such that the Judge fek con strained not to longer delay his positive declaration and once de termined he began the contest in his usual vigorous manner Judge Hughes has been tentatively a candidate forsevera months and his close friends have under stood he would ei ter the race at the proper time They have been auietly butQeffectieely organizing forces for him and be goes into the contest with great strength already assured him With Mr Gilbert out of the race it is not liken that Shelby or Spencer will offer a can didate and Judge Hughes will be strong in both counties Hon George G Speer of Anderson has announced that he will not setk nomination and that county may not offer a candidate Ifit does not Judge Hughes will have first call on Andersons vote Hon W J Price is being urged to enter the race and if he does so of course Boyles delegation will be for him If he does hot enter Boyle may he confidently counted for Judge Hughes Hon James Hamilton has stated that he will not offer for Congress and Garrard will be very strong for Judge Hughes Hon John Welch will not be in the race and Hop Emmett Hoover may conclude to wart If neither of these gentlemen enters Jessamine will lineup for Judge Hughes a uative of her soil In any event Mercer s candidate will be strong in all of these counties Madison has several prospective candidates and Lincoln may possibly offer one despite the fact that Hon Jesse M Alverson has declared himselfout of the contest Rockcastle has not yet offered a candidate and will probably not do so So it looks as if Judge Hughes has the best of the situation John W Hughes has the qualifi cations the capacity and the tem perament to make worthy representative of the Eighth district He has been for twenty years one of the moat loyal anddevoted fight ing Democrats in the district His means his time and his talents have always been given freely to tle partys cause On the stumps icjtorybounds of truth to say that Judge Hughes has traveled more miles and made more speeches for the partys nominees than any one manI in the district If loyalty and long service have any call preferment be has earned and deserves promo tion Judge Hughes will make a strong candidate a winner and a winner- S t eie Pt Eris what the party needs He is a good mixer a practiced organizer an old campaigner and power as a stump speaker His oratory is of that fervid earnest fighting type that catches the boysand votes When the cajnpcigu is weIll on his opponents will be kept busy and the pace will he one tokill The Judge never does things by halvesJohn W Hughes was born in jessamine county fifty o e years ago His parents moved to Mis sour when he was a boy In youug manhood he came back to Kentucky located in Mercer ami began teaching a country school His worth was quickly recognized and he was elected Superintendent of County Schools Then he was elected Police Judge of Harrods burg and after fout years of good service in that capacity was promoted to the bench of the Mercer County Court tor two terms Judge Saufley appointed Hughes master commisioner of the Mercer Circuit Court and for a dozen years he fill ed that position Then he was again elected County Midge which positon he now holds During all these years Judge Hughes has been an extensive landholder and for ten years has been one of the most practical and successful farmers in the county operating until quite recently boo acre farm He was not riculturist or theoretical farmerI but a hardworking conscientious and money making tills r of the soil For two years Judge Hughes has given much of his time and means and talents to the effort to organ iz e the tobacco growers into a co operative association that would protect them from the oppression of the trust The work has been one of love and wholly disinterested as he had not an acre of tobacco of his own His strongest char acteristics are his plain blunt man hood his devotion to the welfare of the masses his fearless vigor in prosecuting to successful issue that which he believes to be right and his open hearted charity and liber alityThis is the man whom Mercer offers as a candidate to represent the Eighth district in Congress THE rank injustice of tbe Repub lican Statehood bill as passed bv the House has been remedied by the Democratic Senators joining with a fev Republicans voting to amend the bill so as to give state hood to Oklahoma and Indian Ter ritory and leaving to the future the question of admitting New Mexico and Arizona The Repuh lican partisan plan of forcing the two last named territories into the Union as one State when their people are bitterly opposed to such a partnership because it is expected that the Democrats will carry Okla homa and thus increase their vote in the United States Senate but cannot carry New Mexico and Ari zona combined was thus fortunately defeated It now remains for the Republican partisans of the House to back down in accordance with commonsense and fair play or take the responsibility of defeating the bill WHAT character of men have we in our Legislature that will steal bills before and after their passage with the same conscienceless and remorseless cunning of the poarch climber and hoisethief Such men are scoundrels of the lowest breed and deserve to be horsewhip ped and expelled from theprecincts of the State capitalRichmond Climax POLITICS AND POLITICIANS Congressman G G Gilbert an nounces that he will not again be a candidate tor the Congression al nomination from the Eighth District He has been urged by a number of admirers to make the race but remembers that before the race he asked for one more He will return to Shelbyville and engage in the practice of law at the expiration of this session of Congress RHEUMATISM MAKES LIFE MISERABLE A happy home is the most valu able possession that is in the reach ofmankind but you cannot enjoy its

MAGAZINE SECTION MT VERNON ROCKCASTLE COUNTY KY APRIL 6 1906 Pages 1 to 4 MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN MRS WALTER FARWELL OF CHICAGO AND WASHINGTON IS HOLDING TIlE HONOR Is Daughter of the Wife of Stephen A Douglass Herself Famous Belle Husbands Father Began Life a Poor Boy Who is the most beautiful woman in America This was the question recently propounded in connection with the preparation of a Beauty Book which was designed to sell at some copyItpensive volume portraits of the hand somest women in each of the princi pal American cities but one member of the fair sex was to be selected as preeminently the most beautiful crea ture in Miss Columbias domain Naturally there was great rivalry for the honor and the persons who sat In ofbeautifulted in the contest had a rather difficult time to reach a decision Finally the choice fell upon Mrs Walter Farwell of Washington D C and Chicago who was a bride of but a few months when inherthe judges studied the features of each subject critically just as a perJ MRS WALTER FARWELL AWARDED AS WOMAN AMERICA son might judge the good qualities of a picture and the award was made to Mrs Farwen as the possessor of the greatest degree of perfection in every attribute of womanly beauty For the benefit of any person who might be disposed to find fault with the decision of the committee it may be said in simple truth that none of Mrs Farwells likenesses do her justice She is a tall surpassingly graceful woman of the type so often referred to as the Gibson girl with slender but perfect figure a marvelously clew complexion hair that is tinged with gold and a very animated manner She has been famous ever since she first entered society for being one of the best or rather one of the most ar tistically gowned women in the public eyeMother Was a Famous Beauty Mrs Farwell comes by her beauty as a rightful heritage from her mother who was the most famous beauty of her day Before her marriage Mrs Farwell was Miss Mildred Williams Perhaps this name does not suggest aught unusual to the older generation of our readers but the hidden signi ficance will be disclosed when it is ex plained that Mrs Williams the mother of this stately beauty of the day was in earlier years Mrs Stephen A Douglass wife of one of the foremost men of his day and herself perIodephen A Douglass his widow married Gen Williams of the United States Army For a time the couple lived in Washington but Gen Williams who was a man of some note became so incensed at hearing himself referred to only as the husband of the forme- Mrs Stephen A Douglass that he secured a transfer to a Western army post and remained in the wilds of western America for many years not returning to the capital until his wifes beauty was less conspicuous than formerly and he was himself less sensitive on the score of personal van ity Miss Mildred Williams was a great belle from the very day that she made her first formal bow to the social world To be sure she had no dower but her own marvelous beauty but she made what the gossips pronounced a great catch when she married Wal ter Farwell of Chicago one of the most prominent young millionaires of the Windy City Started with fSlO Capital Young Farwell is the son of exSen ator Farwell who started in life as a poor boy at Painted Post New York later removing to Illinois and eventu ally going to Chicago on a load of wheat with but 10 in his pocket He secured employment in the coun ty clerks office later became teller of a bank and finally established with his brother the great dry goods business which to this day causes the name of Farwell to be well known in mercan tile circles In 1887 the Farwell broth ers built the Texas State Capitol re ceiving in payment therefor more than 3000000 acres of land Much of this land they sold but considerable holdings of it went to form a gigantic ranch which was stocked with 150000 cattle and helped materially to swell the Farwell fortune daughterspublic so that the beautiful Mrs Wal ter Farwell has two very prominent sistersinlaw One is Mrs Reginald De Koven wife of the well known com FIRST PRIZE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL present fam city poser of Robin Hood and other operas and the other is Mrs Hobart Chatfield Tayler who has gained fame and for tune as a writer of novels Mrs Far wells home is in the beautiful family mansion in Chicago but she spends much of her time at the capital of the nation where she formerly resided and where her sisterinlaw Mrs De Koven has a handsome home I Oria of Easter Easter is so called from the Saxon goddess Easter

him in the Presidential chair There have recently been long con erences between Indiana politicians lr Fairbanks and his friends and there is good reason to believe that a great deal has been accomplished in the way of perfecting the organization formed for the purpose of securing the Republican nomination for Indianas son two years hence- Beveridge Is in Line Everything is said to be lovely for Mr Fairbanks in Indiana He has cleaned up the opposing faction in the Republican party there headed by the youthful Senator Beveridge who is un derstood to have responded so readily to the treatment applied that he now gives three cheers every time the name of Fairbanks is mentioned in his pres ence Senator Beveridge is no longer in a position to hamper the progress of the Fairbanks boom in Indiana In the factional fight over the State chair manship Mr Beveridge suffered an ig nominious rout and even if he does not train with Mr Fairbanks in the future he will not actively oppose himFollowing Senator Hennas Methods In his campaign to secure delegates for William McKinley in 1896 Marcus A Hanna began his operations in the South He had securely nailed down that section before the representatives of other candidates had begun to work Mr Hanna enlisted in the cause a number of young men who went out looking for delegates and got them Mr Fairbanks knows something about the methods of Mr Hanna and his representatives are now treating Clth leading party men in the South While the Republican party in the South is short on votes on election day it is long on delegates in the national con vention This fact is keenly appreci ated by Mr Fairbanks Chances In Illinois The VioePresidwit is certain of In dianas delegates and he is counting upon Illinois His fortunes in that State are in the hands of Charles G Dawes former Comptroller of the Cur rency one of Mr Hannas young men in the preconvention campaign made in the interest of the candidacy of Mr McKinley Fairbanks had strong and influential friends in Illinois and hi chances of securing the delegation fro that State are probably better those of any other man who has bee mentioned for the Presidential nom tfbe the western manager of the Fair banks boom At least such a report was circulated recently and it has never been denied The VicePresident and his profess to believe the next standard- bearer of the Republican party will b a western man Ohio has two favorite sons in the persons of Secretary and Senator Foraker Both are ve strong in Ohio and both are widely and favorably known throughout the country The Fairbanks men believe that the rivalry of Taft and Foraker will prevent either of them securing the united support of Ohios delegation to the next convention Therefore Fairbanks is figuring on the Buckeye state Some of the Hoosiers friends are very enthusiastic and to hear them one would think that the formalities of I a nominating convention and an elec tion might just as well be dispensed with Of course if Mr Roosevelt should run for reelection as it is being prominently argued that he will notwithstanding his publicly express ed attitude against another term it is admitted that he would be the prac tically unanimous choice for nomina tion and the work of the Fairbanks party would have boon in vain INDIAS RICHEST POTENTATE He Owns a Carpet Made of Precious Gems and Diamonds and Rubies by the Bushel During the stay of the Prince and Princess of Wales in India they will doubtless meet and be entertained by tobethe Orient if not in the whole world This is the Gaikwar or Rajah of Baroda a potentate who well illus concerningthethe gorgeous East showers on its annualIare menMr John fromiprobably has no rival in the world When he came to the throne some twentyfive years ago the present ruler of Baroda found stored in the vaults of his palace wealth so colossal that a description of it outdoes the Ara bian Nights itself Certainly Aladdin never thought of a carpet of jewels such as the Gaikwar possesses To say that there is nothing like it in the world is only feebly to describe its glories which can be better indicated by the statement that it is about four yards square and composed of ropes of rubies diamonds pearls woven into a regular carpet welldefined pattern and border Thousands of dollars worth of jewels every one of the finest quality went to make up this wondrous carpet the product of three years work by skilled artists and jewel set tersNow ir the Gaikwar of Baroda were only moderately wealthy this monarch of carpets would doubtless occu palaceButset up a dozen ordinary monarchs the jewelled tapestry occupies an odd cor ner and is shown to visitors as mere ly but one of the treasures of the palace Less of a curiosity but far more valuable is the Gaikwars diamond necklace a trinket the value of which several times make a man a million aire This necklace is the most mag nificent in existence And even the honor of possessing the second finest is denied to the rest of the world for that also is amongst the Gaikwars family jewels being worn by his wife who is besides dowered with brooches bracelets rings and other orna ments the value of which is com puted in millions of dollars bythefive hundred diamonds of the purest water which includes in its glittering rows the famous Star of the South the fourth largest diamond in the worldSuch a dazzling collectionsuch a welter of jewelswas needless to say not made in a single lifetime For centuries the Gaikwars ancestors have been accumulating their treasures un til today the jewels alone could be measured in bushels As for the rest there are pictures in bronzes and stat uary to the value of several millions ofmoneyA procession in Baroda is worth going many miles to see Horses caparisonedway but the cynosure of all eyes is the Gaiker not merely because of his personality but also by reason of the stupendous wealth represented by the jewels with which he adorns himself He is perhaps the one man in the world who could wear that mammoth amongst gems the great Premier Dia mond without incongruity Sleeping Car Acquaintances Representative

WEIRD SCENE AMONG THE SOUTHERN COLORED BAP TISTSFEET WASHING Third Letter of Account of Trip into the Sunny Southland Interest ing Visits to JacksonviHe Savannah and Richmond The first Sunday we spent in Eustis we drove to Lake Gracie just in the rear of the hotel grounds to witness the Baptist colored immersion It was a perfect June me ruing with settings of pure gold It did not seem possible that it was windy March at home The orange groves reached down to the very edge of the lake which lay placed like a mirror Several of the guests rowed across from the hotel to witness the ceremony Presently the preacher fol lowed by his candidates and flock came through the woods singing one of their wild refrains A few words from the Good Book a prayer all kneeling and then an exhortation delivered with much vigor The baptism was quietly performed with the exception of the case of one of the sister candidates who felt so happy that two men were obliged to carry her out of the water Egyptthemy life attended such a service It was the first Sunday in March which is a high day in the churchThe Prim ative Baptist The church building is a little wooden structure with bare benches along each side and a rough table in front of a box of a pulpit When we entered a prayer meeting was being held As many of the native congregation cannot read the hymns are lined two lines at a timeand such strange music I never heard They dont seem to sing the words it andIejaculations to the Lord accompanied with clapping of hands and loud expressions from all the brothers and sisters The sermon was the most rambling discourse imaginable begin ning with Genesis and ending in Reve lations accompanied with vigorous pan tomine of face arms and legs Then the darkies screamed and yelled at the top of their voices and during all of which one of the sisters got happy and surged over into another seat screaming and jumping up and down Several buxom sisters held her until she became quiet Then the collection was taken up each one going up to the table and laying his money on while all the time this dreadful singing without break or interruption Modern Amazon Then Aunt Savannah the Captain of the frail sex became busy She was attired in a white andgraycott- on mother hubbard gown tied around the waist with white apron around her neck she wore a black fur collar and on her head a

Two tencent basins were placed on the table the men and women took off their shoes and the preacher washed the first elders feet wiping them with the towel which was girdled around his waist then

their beauty VVlzre Winter Strawberries Grow March 15th we took the train for Ocala the next day reached Lawtie a quiet little town settled by northerners devoted to strawberry culture Here we spent a week driving walking sit ting on the broad piazza of the hotel in the sun getting tanned and fat Nothing here is cultivated but acres and acres of strawberries little tiny plants but raise the leaves and you can pick nearly a quart from one vine The number of quarts shipped north during the season is fabulous but oc casional freezes do damage The mornings and evenings were al ways cold so we had a wood fire in the big fireplace in our room of fat pitch pine wood and it was very fas cinating to watch the fire light as it flickered here and there lighting the room so that we needed no lamp All through the South the mocking birds were singing calling and answering Returningtohours we had to visiting the shops and the Exposition building Here in the Alligator Pool we saw a number of the uncanny looking beasts the largest of which was ten feet long so utterly hideous and ugly that he was most fascinating to me Our next stop was at Savannah where we drove all over the city and out on the beautiful shell road to the old cemetery called Bon aventure Beautiful Way where the trees great live oaks covered with gray moss are a hundred years old Great Natural Arches Roads have been cut through the woods and the effect is indescribable it is like driving through great cathe dral arches so sombre and solemn and so grand withal a fitting place for the dead Savannah is a beautiful old city with many parks and squares planted with palms and palmettos right in its heart The magnolias seem the favorite tree and they grow to a great height The houses are large and broad with verandas all around the two stories and they must be needed in the hot summer We had very full day and at seven oclock took the sleeper for Richmond We rode all the next day reaching our destina tion in the evening and drove to Fords Hotel where we had stopped wCddinghipcity has grown and nothing looked natural except Sunset Park and the old Capitol Park The grass was turn ing green and the numerous gray squirrels were so tame they came and ate from my hand We drove all the morning visiting the beautiful statue of Gen Robert E Leea bronze eques trian on an immense granite pedestal In the afternoon we drove to the park and hunted up Mr Pollard the Virginian who captured my husband dur ing the war It was their first meeting since that memorial time when they were mere boys one wearing the blue and the other the gray and they had a most interesting war talk The next morning we took our train for Washington exactly five weeks from the day we left It has been truly a delightful trip beneficial in health and education perfectly charming in every way whose memory will go with me through life C G G PRINCE WHO LIKES HORSESI Brother of Heir to German Crown a Rough Rider Eitel Frederick prince of Prussia and younger brother of the crown prince of Germany is considered one of the finest horsemen of Europe The German people love him greatly for this along with his kindness to his animals a quality sometimes wanting when great daring is possessed by boysWhen the prince was sixteen he was given the freedom of the royal stables and told that he could select one ot the fine Arabian ponies for his own use He asked if he could look after him just as boys in lesser stations in life do with their ponies and his fathers reply was I want my boys to know how to work and care for everything that belongs to them Eitel did care for his pony and spent many moments learning all about the needs and nature of horses He dis covered that his Arabian could jump and riding him one clay he cleared a fourbarred fence which greatly delighted the emperor who was riding with him A short time after this his father gave him a powerful hunting horse The boy looked like a midget on him l ut would not ride him for three or four days A horse needs to know you he gravely said before he makes up his mind whether you will be kind and reasonable with him or harsh After boy and horse had become ac quainted he invited his father to take a ride in his company The two set out for a gallop through the forests Emperor William is regarded as a splendid horseman but he tolfl a circle of friends after this ride that Eitel had given him a ride for his life He leaped ditches and hedges took the roughest roads held his horse under perfect control and won the greatest praiseIt told of this boy that ho

Governments Bro ken PromisesHis Ancestors Welcomed Lewis and Clark in Their Western ExplorationsC The most picturesque character of the western frontier passed away last year when Chief Joseph of the Nez Perces or as they knew him Inmut tooyahlatlat Thunder traveling over the mountains folded his blanket about him and passed beyond the Great Divide The members of his tribe all of whom were singularly devoted to him and the privileged few of the white race who knew him intimately believe that this great leader perhaps the greatest Indian leader of the period died of homesickness and heart know Chief Josepn was to have revealed to you a glimpse into a van ished past There was a loftiness and dignity mingled with a charming naivete in his manner and a tender pathos in his speech that made you forget the Indian and recall the old Hebrew prophets of the days of the Captivity UNVEILED WARRIORS S V AS the chief and historian of his tribe Josephs plea for the Nez Perces- has often been heard in Washington In its deep sense of eternal righteous ness and of the deadly wrong suffered at the hands of the white man In its smothered five and in hopeful longing for the coming of justice and better times for the tribe it was the most powerful and pathetic appeal ever made by an Indian From the viewpoint of close association with the red man his faults are magnified and his virtues forgot ten From the viewpoint of the reader of Cooper and romantic writers on Indian topics his vices arc obscured and his virtues unduly exaggerated Judged from the impartial standpoint of a rather long acquaintance which contains meetings in camp and city in the writers opinion Chief Joseph was the finest type of the red man this country will ever know He died of homesickness and that statement will provoke no sceptical smile from one who knows the Indian character The earth that contains the ashes of an Indians dead is sacred and hallowed The longing in an In dians heart for the land of his birth is as as that which turns our wandering footsteps back to the old home When Fate in the shape of an unkind Government forcibly wrests from him the land of his fathers his grief though repressed and concealed is as poignant as our own would be If we were so treated Loved Home of the Tribe I recall one expression of Josephs In this connection My father is burled in Wallowa Valley I love that land more than all the rest of the world A man who would not love his fathers grave is worse than a wild animal Have you ever been in Wallowa that beautiful valley of Winding Waters It is Americas Switzerland Its lofty mountains rear their heads so Mfrh that a snow mantle rests there all the year round Their feet are in lakes which rival Luzerne Down the steep slopes through narrow walled canyons which the sunlight never enters the streams come rushing cataracts In their cold ripples the gamey trout lurks expectant to give battle for his life when the angler tempts him to the hook In the autumn the salmon in countless numbers leap the waterfalls and are caught and dried by the Indians for winter food On the forested slopes in shadowy ravines and over the rolling hills the deer and elk the caribou the grizzly and the cinnamon and the wary mount ain sheep abound It is a game paradise with rich pastures for ponies- It was in this valley that the grand father of Chief Joseph welcomed the daring explorers Lewis and Clark Speaking of them Joseph said They talked straight and our people made them a great feast All the Nez Perces made friiiuls with Lewis iml Clark and agreed to let them pass through the country and never to make war on white men And this promise the Nez Perces have never broken No white man can accuse them of bad faith and speak with a straight tongue It has always been the pride of the Nez Percea that they were the friends of the white menEncroachments of the White Men It was not to be expected that the Indian would be allowed to remain for ever unmolested in the possession of this beautiful valled When the western fever broke out settlers came at first in small numbers and the valley being large all lived in peace But it could not last There came a day when by means of presents and fair promises a portion of the band signed a treaty dividing their lands Josephs father refused to sign away his birthright and withdrew his band from the council In 1863 another council was held A chief named Lawyer with authority of a part of the tribe sold nearly all of the Nez Perces country including the Wallowa Valley The latter was the particular property of Josephs own people its boundaries for years had been marked by poles had never been disputed The old chief said Inside is the home of my peoplethe white man may take the land outside In side the boundary all our people were born It circles around the graves of our fathers and we never give up their graves to any man In spite of the treaty the Indians remained in unmolested possession for eight years when the white men began to encroach upon the boundaries The conditions threatened to become serious and the Government asked for a treaty council Joseph owing to his fathers age and blindness represented his people Ho refused to remove to the Lapwai agency in Idaho and give up the valley so the council came to that time on the white settlers save constant offense to the Indians They stole their horses drove off their cattle and branded the calves and then claimed them It speaks well for the strong hand Joseph held over his people and for his desire for peace longFinally immIlll MM CHIEf JOSEPH AND MONUMENT OF TRIBE its other strong like eager Howard that it was the purpose the Government to remove the Nez Perces to the reservation as they had sold their land to the Government Incontrovertible Indian Logic Joseph always denied such a sale He said Suppose a man should come to me and say Joseph I like your horses and want to buy them I Say to him No my horses suit me I will not sell them Then he goes to my neighbor and says to him Joseph has some good horses I want to buy them but he refuses to sell My neigh answers Pay me the money and I will sell you Josephs horses The white man returns to me and says Joseph I have bought your horses and you must let me have them If we sold our land to the Government this is the way it was bought Continued on

new theories of the cause of some ol the miracles mentioned In the Bible and now the miraculous fall of the walls of Jericho Is said by men of learning to have been caused by the tact that the tone pitch of the trum pheta of the followers of Joshua was exactly in harmony with the sensitive tone of the walls When the trum pets were blown they set the walls of the biblical town to vibrating and In a short time their foundations were weakened that the entire mass fell to the ground This statement was brought out at a private social gathering the other evening in Philadelphia where music was the feature During the course of the evening a cello performer was called on for so many encores of weird pieces with minor chords running War Statc and Navy Building at Washington through them that he had to stop to tune up several times Just previous to one of these a picture which was suspended at the far end of the room came tumbling down without warning Many of the superstitions turn ed white with fear but a scientific man In the room went to some length to explain that the fall of the picture had been caused by a vibration of the wire set up by a note of a particular pitch made by the cello He stated that every stretched string has some particular musical pitch which will set it vibrating To emphasize his argument he asked the performer to strike different tones and in a short time other pictures in the room were set vibrating so violently as to make the movement perceptible to the eye The cellolet also succeeded in set ting up vibrations on a piece of glassware on the mantel which caused it to give out a musical note Affected Building Foundations- A couple of days after President Roosevelts inauguration last the whole body of Rough MarchI Minnesota called on Secretary the magnificent State War and Navy Building Accompanied by their brass theyllnedrnd with ragtime music serenaded the Focretary Upon arlng the music the superintendent of the building at once asked the leader to refrain from playing any more in the building as there was a tendency to weaken the buildings foundations In fact in this instance the vibrations set forth were plainly perceptible not only to those In the vicinity of the band but to clerks on other floors of the build lag MARKET GARDEN TYPE New Style of Auto Suitable for Carrying Farm Produce One of the first cable pictorial de scriptions of the useful war automobile as shown in the illustration has just came to hand This is a special farm ers type It can be constructed in any small power for jogging along pur poses from 30 to 120 horse A special feature of interest to market gardners is the ability of the wagon to run lor twenty minutes after having the tires riddled with bullets which makes it thoroughly practical It is entirely bombproof when beyond the range of the enemys guns A starting crank is fitted in front but the machine can be started automatically from the Irivers seat where the principal crank is supposed to be located On the top of the rear portion of the box the specifications read is a turret from which projects a Hotchkiss gun which can be trained in any direction upon competing market gardners A special quality of steel has been employed for armor At 300 yards Lebel bullets fail to pierce but glance off thus in suring adequate protection to loads of eggs live shoats and other tender vege tablesThe machine carries two steel rails which can be quickly unshipped and placed across a ditch This feature is of great import to the average tiller of soil as it means that if the machine becomes frightened or unmanagable due to the sudden appearance of horse men or the flight of birds and jumps ditches or fences it can be quickly got ten back into the road and sped along EXAMINING NEW FARM TYPE OF AUTOMOBILE I for the early morning market The cost of this little delivery wagon is only 16000 which of course places it with in the reach of any farmer and very editor of a paperthat is if he happens to be close enough so that he can touch it It is estimated that if all the garden and farm produce could be marketed by means of this simple and inexpensive device the cost to the city consumer would not be increased over S00 at the most Great Chief Joseph In the war which followed Joseph led his little band as only a great gen eral could lead them but the Nez Perces never had a chance to win Joseph surrendered to General Miles and for years the tribe was moVed back and forth over the country regardless of promises made when they surrendered After one of Josephs visits to Washington where he met the Pres ident the Cabinet officers and num erous Congressmen he remarked They all say they are my friends and that I shall have justice but while their mouths all talk right I do not understand why nothing is done for my people I have heard talk and talk but nothing is done Words do not pay for my dead people They do not pay for my country overrun by white men It makes my heart sick when I remember all the good words and all the broken promises You might as well expect the river to run back ward as that any man who was born free should be contented when penned up and denied liberty to go where he pleasesPathetic Plea for Freedom Oh let me be a free man free to travel free to stop free to work free to trade where I chose free to choose my own teachers free to follow the religion of my fathers free to think and talk and act for myselfand I will obey every law or submit to the pen altyGradually as the years passed away Joseph grew to understand the hope lessness of achieving his hearts desire a return to Wallowa though he never ceased to make his plea for justice When the end came a year ago he was surrounded by the remnant of his band who stood beside his deathbed in silent the 20th of September last these same devoted members of the tribe stood around the grave of Joseph and listened to the funeral address delivered by his successor and

mouth with its haughty curves A pure proud face was hers and cold as the white mist that like a dim squadron was stealthily marching in from the sea On the still languorous air suddenly a clear sweet note rang outthe chimes of the old mission bells The sacred music reached Rosas ears arousing her from her reverie Dis engaging one slender hand she made the sign of the cross her lips moved was a sound near at hand of slow halting footsteps A man young but of haggard countenance was approaching under the shadow of the Rosa only heard the vesper the man drew until he stood humbly before her his head bared his shabby hat in his trembling hand He raised his eyes full of dumb wist fulness to her face The passionate love and despair of a tortured soul was in them He stood motionless as on awaiting his sentence Sweet and high the chimes of the bells arose and fell Something like a sob escaped the mans lips his thin brown fingers worked convulsively As if from a dream Rosa started and turned her sombre eyes upon him A swift crimson flooded her face and suddenly receded leaving it as white as the lilies upon her heaving bosom DiegoThe fell involuntarily from her unwilling lips It is

chapel The Padre is with him but nothing can avail him now He went out this morning with the fishermen and in coming in the boat was over turned Ah but Diego was brave Thanks to his courage all were saved but himself Two lives hath he rescued from death and I for one declare that it had blotted out his transgressions The speaker broke off abruptly and caught at Rosas arm Her face was ashen and he thought she would have fallenWith a bitter cry she broke away from him and sped toward the crowd on the beach In the old chapel a hard battle was fought A battle for a life by tireless hands that would not recognize defeat at last when they were despairing a shudder ran over the prostrate form The Virgin be praised He hath moved whispered one near him Diego said a voice stifled with sobsHe opened his eyes feebly and gazed about him in a vague bewilderment Had some one spoken or had he chapelthe the outcast the despised the heart brokenSuddenly his eyes caught the white gleam of waxen blossoms upon his breast a great awe entered his face Jesu Maria he murmured The lilies of the chancel Nay but thine own Diego mio sobbed Rosa brokenly Her arms were about him her tears were upon his face Thine own adorado she whis pered tremulously all thine the lilies of Diego I have robbed the al tar for thy dear sake This is the day of resurrection said the Padre solemnly Madre de Christo the people muttered It is a miracle And it wasa miracle of love EASTER AT THE WHITE HOUSE Time Honored Practice of Letting the Children of Washington Roll Eggs on Presidents Grounds Easter Monday in Washington is an event in the lives of the children which is ahead of any other day in the year exepting Christmas ai Fourth of July Why Because Easter Monday means eggrolling For many years the little ones of Washington have congregated by the hundreds and thousands to roll eggs Easter Monday in the beau tiful grounds surrounding the home of the President of the nation There is no sign to keep off the grass and there are no restrictions The children own the place The green grass of the White House lawns is covered with children children innumerable rolling eggs on the grassy slopes If the day is pleasant it is a sight to be remembered The children have been looking forward to the festival for days and weeks antI great has been their anticipation But genuine is the sorrow and many the tears among the little ones if Easter Sunday should be cold and rainy with promise of a bad Monday Yet no weather has ever been so bad as to keep everyone away from the White House grounds on egg rolling day There are many hardy little spirits who will not bo daunted by snow or cold or rain when it comes to rolling eggs If the day is pleasant and the air balmy and the turf warm and green what a time the children have Such games as they invent to play with their eggsgames of infinite variation containing infinite amusement The grounds look more like a juvenile fair than anything elsean egg fair and the biddy liens around Washington must needs have been very diligent for many days before If the day is fair too the glorious Marine Band the finest band in the country plays sweet music and the children dance and gambol to its strains Truly it is childrens day in Washington Wonderfully Colored Eggs By 0 oclock in the morning the grotmds are actually taken possession of by the youngsters little kids with wicker baskets and varicolored eggs wonderful eggs of green and blue and red and purple and gold and then eggs of lovely combination and with beautiful figures such as would make a wise hen cock her head on one side and wonder greatly what happened to her plain white eggs All sorts and conditions of children find their way to the Presidents grounds to enjoy Easter Monday Some of the children are beautifully dressed in silks and laces and have French nurses to watch over them and carry their eggs for them while other little ones are dressed in very shabby gar ments with elbows out and toes peep ing from their little shoes They per haps have only three or four plainly colored eggs boiled in a piece of purple or red calico No French nurses accompany them carrying eggs with gilt pic ures but they can roll their eggs and themselves on the green grass and soil their frocks and trousers to their hearts content and they will enjoy the holiday perhaps more than their more fortunate companions Usually the mothers of these little men and women come with them tiredfaced women often looking as though it had been a long day since they had enjoyed such a time Here and there are little groups of mothers and older sisters talking together pleasantly but keeping watch ful eyes to see that the little ones do not get lost in the crowd or stray too far Afraid of the Policeman It is a good natured crowd The big policemen standing around possess no terror for the little ones on eggrolling day They know that all that big policemen are for on Easter is to keep grown up people from interfering with the little ones who are rolling eggs And when the little people get lost now and then the big policemen are there to take them in charge and tell them not to cry until their mothers and sis ters find them again Then there are great rivalries among the children Some of them are regular little gamb ers One little fellow gets hold of a very hard egg and he goes around picking eggs with his acquaintances or acquaintances he finds and wins their eggs from them until finally he strikes some other little fellow who has a harder egg than his and then he loses a lot of eggS And some of the little rascals gamble on what is a sure thing with a china egg sized and painted to resem ble a genuine egg or with a hens egg run full of plaster of paris they will go around and of course win all the eggs they contest for until some sharp little fellow finds out the game they are playing As the day advances and the children get hungry the peanut man and the popcorn man and the can dy man at the gates do a thriving business while at noon many are the little groups under tho trees sitting around on blankets and shawls and eat- Ing lunches for they are making a regular picnic of it and staying all day The Children of Presidents President Harrisons two grand children witnessed with great enjoyment the eggrolling from the porch of the White House facing toward the Washington monument and looking past and across the Potomac to Arlington the former home of General Lee but where now are spread the silent tents of a vast host of the Union army who have passed across to the great beyond girlsRuthocrats They took their own eggs and went out among the crowd of happy children and they rolled eggs withthe other children as common clay as their associates not the children of the President of the United States but the children of an American citizen Per haps a little extra watch was kept over them but they didnt know it and they thought that Easter Monday was the happiest day in their little lives The Roosevelt children are past the age of eggrolling but they enjoy with the President and Mrs Roosevelt watching the gay throng of young sters who romp over the White House gvunds on Easter Mondays There was a time however when the children of Washington did not roll egg on the Presidents grounds Not that they did not roll eggs thoughOh no The have always rolled eggs on Easter Monday But they used to roll thefain the Capitol grounds down the sieepi terrace which was on the west fronlof the Capital Then there came a tune when the Capitol grounds were changed and a big flight of steps built where the terrace used to be and some dyspeptic in Congress objected to the children romping on the smooth grass of the big sward and rolling their eggs General Hayes was President then and he heard of it and how dissapoint ed the children were because they had no place to roll their eggs that year and tho kindly man said Why let them roll their eggs on the White House grounds and enjoy themselves And thus it has been ever since from year to year- BRAVED DEATH VALLEY Nevada Woman Penetrated Fastness for WealthWas Accompanied by Only Half Breed The weird Funeral Mountain of Death Valley Nevada are to yield rich offerings of copper and gold ores as a result of the successful prospecting of Miss Lillian Malcolm who it is stated discovered these deposits on a ridge that towers three thousand feet in the air In making this find she was accompanied only by an Indian half Lillian Malcolm according to her story crossed the Chilcoot in Al MISS LILLIAN MALCOLM aska alone in her search for gold The railroad had not been built that has since minimized the difficulties of Alaskan travel in the Chilcoot region Miss Malcolm declares that the tour of the Funeral Mountains however was more hazardous than her lonely jour ney through the Chilcoot years ago No white person has ever visited the spot where I viewed the great cop per deposit until I made my way there she said in a recent interview I have never before seen such rugged ness in mountains as the Funeral Range presents To climb up almost per pendicular grades means to slide down others before the objective point can be reached I have been a prospector for ten years and have passed much of my time in the mountains of Alaska Colorado and other places where there is gold The Funeral Range is the worst of any I made up my mind that I would search for gold and copper in the foothills of the Funeral Mountains I was compelled to cross the range to get where I wished to go and al though I had no fear there were min utes when in climing I did not dare to look back but only kept right on There were many places where a misstep meant sure death All there was to do was to go head Once started there was no way to stop without con fessing defeat Finally I found what I was looking for At first I could hardly believe my eyes I had reached a point about twentyfive miles from the line of the Clark road and sixteen miles from the line of the Borax Smith road when the ledge loomed up im I was happy I have studied minerology geology and other lines leading to mining and I have done assessment work with my own hands in deep shafts In short my experience has been such that I believe that I am competent to know whether my mineral discoveries are valuable The ledge stands up clearly from fifty to seventyfive feet with both gold and copper in itbut more copper than gold jvniiions maybe there In easy reach a quantity that I believe is almost beyond ordinary computa tion If I am not mistaken the dis covery is valuable not only for its richness but also because it opens up knowledge of an entirely new copper belt in the Death Valley Picturesqueness is added to Miss Malcoms trip by the fact that the In dian halfbreed that she took into the desert where so many strong men have died is Bill Kee who is Scottys friend This Indian is a good guide The next step that Lillian Malcolm contemplates is that of informing the railroad builders now constructing lines into the mineralized regions of Nevada of the topographical features of the country to be crossed in order to bring her copper and gold dis transportationerly required weeks for her to reach will soon be made accessible when the present railroading surveys are carried out in rails There Is plenty of

one of the most in telligent members of the force wa retired from active service the other day When the stroke theauctioneers hammer put the big bay out of ser vice he was saved from the ragmans cart and night hawk cab by the devotion of his fifteenyear friend and comrade Mounted Policeman Redmond P Keresey of the West 152d street police station Pompeii had spent nearly twenty years in the service and knew the rules of the department better than many a roundsman He was the show horse of the force Catching runa ways was his business but mathema tics was his diversfeu He could add subtract divide and multiply and for years had been a source or delight to the school children along Seventh Avenue where he was on duty between 110th and 153d streets The children would gather around Pompeii in the afternoons and talk to him Good at Mental Arithmetic When a sum in arithmetic was given him Pompeii would listen attentively to the figures ponder over them for a moment and then announce the answer by striking the ground with his left forefoot If the answer was tne half of something Pompeii indicated it by bending his foreleg at the knee and holding it for a moment His friends insist that he could tell time by looking at a watch and announce the hour and half hour in the same way as he did his sums Playing with the children was by no means the best part of Pompeiis service The records show that he and his master have stopped more than a hundred runaways in the last fifteen years In several instances lives were saved Policeman Keresey and Pom peii have been almost inseperable ever since the latter joined the force Again and again the comrades were parted for a short time when Keresey was trans ferred from one precinct to another but each time the policeman managed to have his favorite sent after him Hurt While Stopping Runaway A short time before the arrival of Prince Henry in New York Pompeii was badly hurt while stopping a run away at Seventh avenue and 125th street Two days later while acting as a guide for the Prince some dirt got in the wound and blood poisoning set in Keresey managed to get placed on reserve duty and gave all his time to nursing Pompeii back to health The police veterinary condemned the horse as unfit for duty but Keresey managed to evade the decision for a few days Then Pompeii made a spectacular run along the avenue and stopped a bad runaway in such style that nothing more was said about retirement The fatal day was only put off how ever and last month the big bay was sold at auction at the stables of the West 152d street station Keresey was on hand with 400 all the ready money he could scrape together determined not to be separated from his old friend Hurt While Stopping Runaway Keresey himself bears some scars gained in the fierce rushes he has made with Pompeii Five years ago his right leg was broken in two places and two years ago his neck was wrenched and his skull nearly smashed in Both injuries were received while with Pompeiis aid he was stopping dangerous runaways Only one man had the heart to bid against Keresey so he ransomed his old friend for 50 about twice what he was worth said the veterinary Then Keresey started on a vacation When last heard from he was spending it on a bit of a farm he has at Rye N Y and with him went Pompeii happy in his last transfer The average annual consumption of

AMERICAN INDUSTRY GUY EllIOTT MITCHELL The general policy of the Department of Agriculture has been to endeavor to produce at home such plants as are grown abroad and shipped into the United States This is just as true with regard to luxuries as to necessities and especially apropos is its reference to the Bermuda or Easter Lily For some years efforts have been made to cultivate successfully the Easter lily in the Southeastern States but it has been found that the climate of that section is not as favorable for the lily bulbs as it is in the Bermudas and Japan Experiments have demonstrated that bulbs of the Easter lily can be carried over a season in cold storage with a result that they are benefited very materially as it subjects them to a condition approaching that existing in speciesered with snow during the resting period This discovery has opened new possibilities in the cultivation of the lily Heretofore bulbs have been planted in some parts of the South early in the fall with the result that they sprouted considerably before cool weather set in When severe weather such as the South gets at some periods growthisjured During the period before coming into bloom the plants rendered sickly during the winter often suffer severely from lack of moisture resulting in poorly developed bulbs On the Blue Bermuda Islands Lily growing on the Bermuda Islands is an exceedingly profitable industry Practically all the land available for the production of bulbs is utilized for this purpose and while the rotation of crops together with the most ap SECRETARY GROWN AT DPATMENT AGRICULTURE SEED proved methods of selection and cul tivation would undoubtedly be eventu ally good policy for the growers to pursue yet except in the case of the more progressive growers there is little likelihood of this being done as it would materially decrease the revenue from lily farming for the time being This will readily be understood when it is stated that an acre of lilies will bring from 1000 to 2000 Some growers on the islands who thoroughly appreciate the importance of careful methods are using small bulbs in preference to scales and are selecting and fertilizing carefully but they are heavily handicapped by the many small growers who cultivate their crops according to old methods and in these cases there is no selection with view to producing and perpetu ating good types Little manure is used The methods of propagation are very faulty and they have not been changed since the beginning of the in dustry in the islands For instance in the growing of the bulbs for Amer ican markets the smaller sizes are planted in the fall and harvested In July or before the bulbs have thorough ly ripened In the process of handling many of the immature scales drop from the bulbs These are not thrown away as they to be but are carefully saved and planted with view to raising small bulbs These bulbs ultimately form a part of the general crop As result of all these conditions the bulbs marketed by Bermuda have become impregnated with disease so that the present time it is almost impossible to secure bulb or plant which does not show some trace of di sease The American Method Investigations made by the Depart ment of Agriculture have shown that by the use of seeds instead of scales larger bulbs can be secured In much shorter time than can be produced by the scale method Moreover it has been demonstrated that in this way plants can be grown which are en tirely free from disease and most im portant of all that the seedlings give typesthanThe very best of these seedlings some of which will undoubtedly show superiority in several ways over the parents can be retained for seeds and by keeping up the system of selection there will develop in very few years strains from seed which will be proven of great value George W Oliver the plant propa gator of the Department of Agriculture particularlineindication of success In some in stances he has obtained blooming plants in from 7 to 9 months from germination of the seed while in recent trials as many as twelve magnificent blossoms have been cut from a plant within fourteen months after the plant has shown itself above groundIn to further this class of work the Department of Agriculture has obtained plots of land in California and Oregon where it is believed the profitablyifmuda or Japan raisingthethe crop of marketable bulbs is that from one to two years time is saved in the operation over the scale method The results of the work of the Depart obtainingblooming planting the seed would probably seem like a fairy tale to the participants of the lily conference held in London in 1901 One of the papers read at that time states that many species of Lil Hum must have from ten to twelve WILSON AND A THE OF fROM a a ought a large a at a a a years to develop a flowering bulb from the seed A noted scientist who was believed to bean authority on lily growing stated that In three or four years at most flowering bulbs will be produced from seed if the young plants are properly treated While the experiments of the Department of Agriculture have shown that some seed lings are longer than others in coming into bloom yet when these do flower they reward all the cultivators labor by producing a great amount of flow ers instances being known of plants with from ten to fourteen flowers at one time Hybrid Philippine Lily The Bureau of Plant Industry of the Department of Agriculture last year took up the problem of shortening the time of growing as any short ening in the time of growth represents so much gain to the cultivator With this in view the Department imported a species of lily from the Philippines which was known to bear flowers in plantingcrossed with the common Easter lily and the r It has been a hybrid bearing as many flowers as the old Bermuda lily with no difference in appearance from this plant except that the hybrid will develop in four or five months representing a shortening in time of from one to three months While the experiments of the Depart ment are not yet completed the re suIts attained so far warrant the belief that the new hybrid Easter Lily can be produced cheaper than the old variety which blooms not less than plantingMens Trials See a pin and pick it upmll you can bet your wifell ask you fOt ft be fore you get a chance to tise Ifc There are Indian millionaire la Indian Territory and Oklahoma Orchard Notes Soon is the time when the apple bor er will emerge from the trunk of the tree in the shape of a fly and look about for crevices in the tree trunks in which to deposit her eggs A way often recommended is to take a hoe and hill up each tree about six inches This will necessitate the laying of the eggs on the trunk where they can be easily gotten at and destroyed later May Trill be a good time to walk rapidly through the orchard and rub off the new shoots or water sprouts on the trunks of the trees If much pruning has been done these will be found in abundance When soft and green as they are during this month they can be easily removed pulled out by the roots as it were whereas later they will have to be cut off causing a liability to sprout again This Magnificent Bouquet was Grown from Seed in Fourteen Months If any top grafting has been done and the grafts have taken all sprouts below the grafts should be rubbed off clean allowing the full vigor to go into the graft For the best results fruit and other trees should be cultivated early and often during the spring and early sum mer as that is the time when most growth is made When the fruit is small there is plenty of sap for vigor ous wood growth but after the fruit approaches maturity the wood growth decreases Curing for Transplanted Trees It is well the first year a large tree is transplanted to put a tile at its base or a square box five or six inches in diameter in an upright position and stimulate the tree by pouring down soap suds or other water This furnishes subirrigation and allows but little of the water to evaporate Trees should also be dug around from time to time if rapid growth is desired A tree can grow up in sod and practically stand still or by the use of manure and cultivation it can be made to grow as fast as desired The sod method is frequently followed by the man who has no time to spend on the convenience and appearance of his place As the warmth of spring approaches the system craves some fresh acid and nothing is more grateful than rhubarb A most satisfactory practice is to cover a couple of thrifty stools of rhubarb with an old halfbarrel inverted and pile around it green manure This will force it into quick growth Green Manuring Very sandy soils are more apt to show a beneficial effect than heavy soils from plowing under green crops as compared with applications of fertil izers or manures for the reason that in such soils fertilizer or manure leaches quickly away whereas the humus afforded by the green crop is more entirely retained itself adding to the body of the soil Sandy soils too are nearly all deficient in vegetable mold and green manure is the easiest and cheapest method of supplying this factor I TIlE PHILIPPINE LILY Planting overgrown nursery stock because it can be secured cheaper than young stock is a serious mistake In the first place the handling is much greater and again such trees will never make the sturdy and vigorous growth of the younger ones To use them at any price is poor economy The Eskimo gives his doctor a fee as soon as he comes If the

The time is fast coming if indeed it is not already here when the in telligent industrious and energetic farmer will occupy a far more promi nent place in the affairs of State and Nation that ever before The rapid pace necessarily adopted by those en gaged in professional and mercantile pursuits in order to successfully meet the competition assailing them on theIcon stitution and industrious habits will be in ever growing demand to fill tkeir depleted ranks Much has been writ ten in regard to the prominent part played by such breeding and early country training in the successful management of great mercantile enter prises and the marvelous discoveries and achievements of great professional leaders and much more will still be written upon the same subject The farms of the country have been and will continue to be the nurseries from whence the degenerating forces of those overworked brains and shattered nerves will be recruited More important still there is also a most promising future for the farm boy who takes up agriculture as an occupation Farming is no longer mere drudgery and muscular exertion in which man occupies about the same place as the beasts of burden but it is an industry calling for the keenest intelligence and the application of well defined principles- If the farm boy can be made to understand that the cultivation of the soil and the feeding of stock are based upon principles as clearly defined as those underlying any mechanical or mercantile pursuit and that the same skill and energy applied to the former profitableattracted to his home acres When to these facts are added the opportunity to participate in public affairs and the assurance that because he becomes a farmer he does not surrender all claim to public recognition and re nown he will enter upon the work of the farm with greater zest and courage and with less foreboding- In order to obtain these results it is necessary that the farm lad be fitted for the work as thoroughly as persons are fitted for other professions He must study agriculture as one who is to become a physician studies medi cine or the one who is to be an at torney studies law He must not only know how to do all things but he must also know why the things are done He must know the effect upon the soil of different methods of culture and the effect upon animals of various systems of feeding He must know a thousand things unknown to his an cestors a generation or two ago and thenand not till then will he be in a position to practice farming as intelli gently and as successfully as the phy sician practices medicine or the at torney practices law It requires time hard study and some money to acquire this knowledge but not so much as is required to pre pare for other occupations and profes sions yielding good returns There is no study necessary for the laborer who uses pick and shovel at a dollar and a half a day but preparation is necessary for him who earns three or four times that amount in any line of work There is no preparation nec essary for the farmer who is content to harvest what the soil produces of its own accord but preparation is producesthree manipulatesthenature in an intelligent manner in the production of that crop is an almost greater factor than the soil itself Father and mothers who desire their boys to become or remain farmers should encourage them to make the requisite preparation for their life work and then there will be fewer abandoned farms and fewer dis couraged and disheartened farmers The Joke was Moss Grown He said
