succeed Hon G G Gilbert subject to the action of the Demo cratic party IMPROVE THE CUMBER LAND ALT Kentucky is profoundly in terested in the improvement of the Cumberland river The bill now before Congress for the betterment of the upper Cumberland as an art ery of commerce and an auxiliary to industry should be passed Every Kentucky Senator and Rep resentative should take active con cern in the proposal to make the upper Cumberland and all year round navigable stream That river stretch passes through the counties of Adair Cumberland Russel Clinton Wayne Met calf and Monroe all in the Eleventh Congressional district except Met calf which is in the Third The lower Cumberland passing through the counties of Trigg Lyon and Livingston is navigable the year round and therefore of inestimable service to that section of the State But the upper Cumberland navi gable for five months only fails to meet the evergrowing need of the Eastern Kentucky farmer min er and trader Freight has now to be hauled in the mountain coun ties watered by the upper Cumber land twenty and twentyfive miles just at the season when the roads are at their worst The hardships inflicted by this condition are intol erableThe mountain district of Ken tucky deserves better from Con gress than even the remotest out lay of 600000 asked to improve one of its rivers could Impart No section more loyal to the Union when loyalty was needed no sec tion more faithful to Republican policies and principles all the time than the mountains of Kentucky But when Congressional appropria tions are going

States Senator will be expressed The average politician will kick against it because it practically puts him out of business but the primary is the fairest manner yet decided to select a candidate

has been passed by more than 400 and many more pension measures are In sight Most of these have been signed by the President and are now laws It is likely that he will sign 300 or 400 more this week

coal regions so that a lower rate should be made from the coal fields to tide water in areas where their mines were located than for regions where they owned no coal pre perites What will be brought

involved amount to 7000 The petition al leg s that on March 3 Dowie trans fered property valued at 1200 to Margaret H Fielder and that on Jan 10 other property wa tranr ferred to James H Hirsch thus shotting preference to three credit ors over others which is alleged to be a violation of the bankruptcy law Dowies liabilities are not actually known at this time Hi assetsare said to be about 25000 000 The action threatens to disrupt Zion City in its present unsettled state and friends of the various in stitutions controlled by the Christ ian Catholic church in Zion City fear that such serious com plica tions may anise that Dowies yen ture in building a model city cant bear this additional burden The filing of the petition also places some knotty points of law before the court for an untangling The court set the matter for hearing nExt Monday morning The Zion City propertv estimat ed anywhere from 1500000010 20000000 is now claimed by two factions of the church and if the court steps in one of the warmest contests the bankruptcy court has ever seen will develop Early this year when Dowie was in Jamaica where he went insearch- of health he sent his power of attorney to General Overseer Wilbur Glenn Voliva Under this power of attorney when the break occur red a month ago between Voliva and Dowie the latters property was transferred by Vohit a to Fi nancial Manager Alexander Granger The present status of the case is that Granger claims the property of the Dowieites while Dowie is attacking the transfer in the courts and has sought an injunction restraining Voliva and danger from interfering with him Before a receiver is appointed on the petition in bankruptcy filed the United States will endeavor to determine who has the proper title to the property If Volivas claim is legitimate the federalcounrts could not assume jurisdiction for creditors because the bankruptcy petition rutIS against Dowie indi virtually Shuld Dowies claim u the title prove good a receive could take possession The petition therefore presents a threecor tiered fight which from present in dications promises to be long drawn out This is the second time since he founded Zion City that John Alex ander owie has been attacked in bankruptcy proceedings in the U S courts December r 1903 a similar petition was filed against Dowie and Judge Kohlsaat then in the United States district court appointed two receivers to take charge of Zion City and all its industries Dowie fought against t the proceedings vigorously and suc ceeded in having the receiver dis charged An advisory committe of creditors was then appointed This committee still exists under the old proceeding but they have nothing to do Since the discharge of the receivers Dowie it is said Ins paid off every dollar of the 400000 of indebtedness then in the case Dowies legal advisers declare that he is solvent hevonl question and that the bankruptcy proceedings will serve to prove this assertion

1 to 4 MISS HELEN CANNON One of the First ladies of Official Society at National Capital She Often Graciously Presides at War Councils of the Nations Chiefs Democratic in Manner and a Famous Housekeeper The distinction of being the best posted woman in America on politics and statecraft is generally accorded to Miss Helen Cannon daughter of the Speaker of the U S House of Re presentatives Speaker Cannon who is genial and democratic in manner is a man of many close friendships but no one is so close to him as his only unmarried daughter who has presided over his household since the death of his wife many years ago Miss Cannon emphatically disproves the theory that a woman cannot keep a secret As the confidante of the official who next to the President is the most powerful man in the United States she probably learns more of what is going on behind the scenes HELEN CANNON I DAUGHTER OF THE OF THE HOUSE OF in official life than any other member of her sex yet never so much as once has she let her slip when mum was the word and this is more than can be said of some men of exalt ed Speaker Cannons confi dence in his discretion and common sense is shared by the leaders in the lower house of Congress who have occasion to confer frequently with the presiding officer Many of these confidential confabs are held at the unpretentious vinecovered brick house which constitutes Speaker Can nons Washington home and many times a newcomer at such a conference has been surprised to see the wheel horses of our national legislature freely telling state secrets before the hostess Joys of Good Cooking Incidentally it may be noted that Miss Cannon is largely responsible for so many of these political star cham ber sessions being held at the Cannon residence instead of in the Speakers private office at the Capitol or some where else Few readers of this need be told that the average man sets great store by good cooking and the popularity won by Senator Hannas famous hash breakfasts goes to prove that the President and other high officials of the nation are no ex ception to the masculine rule Well just here one has a hint as to the magnet which helps to draw many men of affairs to the Speakers home instead of to his office Miss Cannon is a splendid housekeeper and is an ex pert in or superintending the preparation of those plain wholesome dishes which never fail to make a hit with men who are weary of hotel cooking In things to eat as in dress Speaker Cannon does not go in for much in the way of frills but no man Who what is in store for him ever declines an invitation to dine at his Rouse When Congress is not in session Miss Cannon is mistress of her fathers home at Danville Illinois There as in Washington she is always prepared for company for the Speakers married daughter with her children spends much time at the Cannon home and relatives and friends always feel free to drop in at almost any time Feminine Calls In the social life of the national capital Miss Cannon occupies by virtue of her fathers position a unique posi tion Possibly not all our readers are aware of the many unwritten laws that govern the exchange of calls between women whose husbands or fathers oc cupy prominent positions at Washington For instance official etiquette prescribes that the wife of a newly elected Senator or Representative must make the first call upon the wives of all those Congressmen who are her husbands seniors in service Miss Cannon however in accordance with these same unwritten laws is not compelled to make a first call upon any ladies in Washington save the wife of the President and the wife of the Vice President All this fuss as to who shall call first may appear ridicu lous to persons who are not brought in contact with life at our seat of gov ernment and possibly Miss Cannon who is thoroughly democratic may re MISS SPEAKER REPRESENTATIVES tongue daughters preparing knows Official gard it in that light too but the fact remains that the enforcement of such recognition is due the dignity of her fathers position and she is too good a politician not to insist upon the Speaker of the House enjoying all the prestige which

a Tugs CrewOne of the Strangest and Perhaps the Most Valuable Prize Ever Taken by a Ship In order that the city of Philadel phia might be rescued from an ice fam ine a powerful oceangoing tug has ac complished the almost impossible feat of capturing a huge iceberg and tow ing it into port Never in the worlds history has this wonderful achieve ment been duplicated and contrasted with it the fascinating exploits re counted by the marine historian Sin bad the sailor appear commonplace and trivial- With its mountain of ice in tow the tug passed up the Delaware River creating consternation among the float ing world on the stream as observers could not imagine other than that the floating mountain was being driven up the bay by some freak of wind and cur rent to the great danger of shipping Its approach was responsible for some frenzied telegraphing which threw the shipping interests into a panic Orders were issued to hold up the sailing of every vessel due to leave and messages were dispatched to lower Dela ware station to intercept several out bound steamers and warn them to seek anchorage out of the bergs path Maritime Interests Excited For several hours maritime inter ests were intensely excited by the un heardof presence of an iceberg in the bay Later when the true story of the wonderful feat was flashed over the wire it seemed so utterly incredible that the excitement if anything was increased It was not until one of the fastest tugs in the harbor had steamed down the bay and wired verification of the story that the panic was allayed Only the providential cooperation of the winds and tides and the most fa vorable weather conditions enabled the tug to accomplish the feat In spite of the almost inconceivable risks at tendant upon the bergs capture not a member of the tugs crew was injured Two Men FrostBitten Two men suffered from bad frost bites but this was due to their own carelessness in braving the arctic tem perature in the bergs vicinity without proper clothing Their experience was a warning to the rest of the crew and when the tug with the prize passed the Breakwater every man aboard was muffled as if for a Peary relief expedi tionThe length of the iceberg was 500 feet and it is estimated that it will yield fully 500000 tons which isnearly sufficient to make the shortage in ice crop due to themild winter The work of cutting up the mountain of ice will have to be pushed because of the rapidity with which it will melt under the sunshine tThe captured off the Grand Banks of Newfoundland It was made fast at great risk by the daring men on the tug who in small boats tied staunch ropes around the mountain of ice and then let out a long towline from the tug and with grappling hooks secured a fastening which held firm after several attempts had resulted in failure The crew of the tug will share in the money the prize will yield As icebergs are brok en off portions of glaciers the ice yielded will be of good quality t4 School Garden Education Every child likes to play in the mud and dirt to make sand houses and caves mud pies and even to plant a garden breaking off the twigs of trees and pulling weeds which are carefully planted and watered furnishing diver sion and pleasure for the day It is an easy matter to direct the youthful mind a little further along this line and interest it in a real miniature gar den It is not an untried theory but a fact abundantly proven in all the large and many of our small cities Philadelphia has what are called Municipal Gardens Boston has a dozen School Gardens Chicago Detroit Washington Cleveland Los Angeles in fact almost all cities have successfully worked out either the school garden or the vacant lot culti vation Idea two separate propositions it is true but closely allied The school garden idea opens up an easy and agreeable avenue to what proves more of a diversion than a task to the young New York has only one such farm garden but on its one or two acres the children plant and raise both flowers and vegetables while in an extemporized cookhouse they prepare the vegetables for the table and enjoy the flavor of the fruits of their labor Besides this instruction in the culinary art a bedroom in miniature furnishes an opportunity for the girls to learn how to care for rooms In Phila delphia the relation of the municipal gardens and the schools is intimate But to see this idea worked out per haps at its best one must study it as it is in Boston There a private organ ization known as the School Garden Association for six years or more has been developing little centers where the children delight to plant and culti vate furnishing object lessons of the utility of such work which it is hoped may lead to its addition to the school curriculum and with this idea in mind these school gardens are located quite generally on land adjacent to schoolihoufces some of the regular school teachers gladly acting the part of instructors The effect upon the little workers in these plots is in every way happy and should lead to their more general use trADE FORTUNE IN WORMS Maine Florist Returns to Sweden After Breeding Bait By far the most popular bait for all kinds of fishing in Maine are liv ing earthworms which have the odor of the ground about them and which seem to be choice tidbits not only ror trout and landlocked salmon but also for pickerel perch black bass and in deed every species of food fish that swims in fresh water As the Maine soil is deficient in humus and lacking in decaying vegetable matter angle worms are not plentiful More than ten years ago Carl Beers a florist of Bangor went into the busi ness of rearing earthworms for the purpose of selling them to the local fishermen as well as for shipment to Boston lIe imported a breed of dark purple worms from Belgium which were prolific breeders though course and strong flavored and later he secured a box of giant angleworms from India In the course of a few years he was able to supply live worms by the million to his custom ersThose shipped to Boston were sold in job lots of 75 cents a pound To the home customers he sold worms of average size for 10 cents a dozen Though his green house was a small one and though his trade in flowers was never extensive he made money rapidly from the sale of worms un til last year when he retired and went to his old home in Sweden a wealthy man Sidney Cook of Presque Isle the inventor of several diving appliances used by men who work in deep wat ers was the next man to attract at tention as a public benefactor in the bait line Mr Cook says his inven tion was made possible through hav ing watched the Indians of Canada when they sought worms for bait All earthworms come to the sur face at night said he and feed on the grasses and rotting leaves near the entrance to their burrows While the worms were busy eating the In dians of Canada had a habit of drag ging a blanket with its under side smeared with bird lime along the sur face of the land thus picking up the fat worms together with sticks and lumps of earth and small pebbles After dredging the land for a time the Indians carried the blanket to the camp picked off the worms and add ed another coating of bird lime Though I have been praised very much for my invention it is not mine by rights as I gained the idea from Indians Already the- Scenery Around the Falls is Marred by Power Plants The only change I have made is to go out with a light giving forth a violet color and allowing it to shine for a few minutes upon the land to be visited with the smeared blanket Most lights frighten earthworms and drive them underground which is the reason why they feed in the dark but a light that carries a blue or a violet blue shade seems to soothe the crea tures and makes them careless of dangerOr perhaps the worms are hypno tized by the strange glare and cannot get away That is the way a dash lamp acts upon deer at night and I think a deer should know as much as an angleworm IN ROCKEFELLERS CLASS Chief Quanah Parker of the Co manches has all the great mans hor ror of the camera While waiting for a train at Stanton Okla a young man began making photographs of him The Indian grew angry opened his pocket knife and threw it at the camera man As this did not de ter the latter Parker went indoors took a revolver from

IN DANGER Joint Resolution in Congress For Their Preservation Proposal to Unite With Canada in an Effort to Stop Further Depre dations Which Will Destroy the Scenic Grandeur At last the national lawmakers have come to a realizing sense of the danger which threatens Niagara Falls the most beautiful of all the worlds natural wonders By a joint resolution of the Senate and House of Representatives the International Commission created un der the River and Harbor Act of 1902 was requested to report to Congress at an early day what action was In their judgment necessary and desir able to prevent the further depletion of water flowing over Niagara Falls and were further directed to exert in conjunction with the members of said Commission representing the Dominion of Canada if practicable all possible efforts for the preserva tion of the falls in their natural con dition Report of Committee This Commission promptly reported that if any benefit was to be derived by legislation immediate action was necessary and outlined a plan which it believed would have the desired effect providing Canada would unite with this government in curbing the greed of promoters and speculators The report says in part As a step in that direction we recommend that legislation be enacted which shall con tain the following provisions viz The Secretary of War to be authorized to grant permits for the diversion of 28500 cubic feet of water per second and no more from the waters naturally tributary to Niagara Falls All other diversions of water which is naturally tributary to Niagara Falls to be prohibited ex cept such as may be required for locks in navigation of canals The foregoing prohibition to remain in force two years and then to be come the permanent law of the land if in the meantime the Canadian government shall have enacted legis lation prohibiting the diversion of water which is naturally tributary to Niagara Falls in excess of 36000 cubic feet per second Dependent on Canada It will be noted that unless the British government unites with this country in its effort to save the natural The American Falls Threat ened to Destroyed by Water Diversion beauty of Niagara Falls little can be accomplished and from past expert ence it seems more than doubtful that such will be the case In the matter of the international boundary and the seal controversy Canada certainly did not show an over friendly spirit and there is no reason to assume that her attitude has changed in the least but it would seem probable that she will use all her great influence with the mother country to defeat any friendly agreement that might be proposed This conclusion of Canadas probable attitude is not reached entirely on ac count of any unfriendly feeling but because of two very important facts one of these is the greater width and depth of the channel on the Canadian side which would insure a splendid flow over the Horseshoe Falls after the American side is entirely dry It is asserted that Ontario Province now receives from the Commissioners of Queen Victoria Niagara Park a minimum annual rental of 60000 for the water rights granted there and when the plants for which these grants were made are in full operation the annual rentals to the government will amount to over 300000 It is further asserted that additional water could be granted by Canada which would produce an annual rental of another 300000 and still not seri ously affect the Canadian side of the Falls while the American Falls would be entirely drained long before this enormous rental was due There would seem however to be a remedy for the evil which is being done and one which is not dependent on Canadian cooperation This remedy could be accomplished by New York State alone and would be to so deepen the river channel south of Goat Island between that island and the New York State bank that the American Falls would divide with the Horseshoe whatever water was not diverted from its natural bed The Treaty of Ghent places the American boundary at a point well out into the deep part of the river channel and affords ample opportunity to make necessary excavations From sketch in Ladies Home Journal HOW THE AMERICAN FALLS MIGHT AP PEAR IN THE NEAR FUTURE If anything is to be accomplished In the matter it is necessary to act at once for if more corporations obtain control of the water rights it will be impossible for either the nation or New York State to repurchase them without an absolutely enormous ex penditure of money Lack of Interest It is certainly to be regretted that the American people have so long neglected the most beautiful fall of water in the world and have allowed any part of it to be converted to pri vate gain or corporate greed Even now in the face of all that has been said and written on the subject there seems to be an attitude of halfheartedness on the part ot the people to act which is well illus trated by the fact that Senator LTHom nuHlieu of the New York State legis lature has asked the Senate to kill his bill restricting the taking of water from Niagara River above the falls for power purposes and says in defense of his action I cannot find any senti Niagarahallson the subject of my bills relating to this subject MAMMOTH INCUBATORt A Hatching Machine That Does the Work of One Thousand Setting largest incubator in the world with a capacity of 15000 eggs has just been completed by W P Hall orfPembroke N Y It is 102 feet long and 4 feet 1 inches wide Partitions divide it into 100 compartments each trayshaveeach To fill this incubator a single thoroughbredeggs requisiteeggsforwork of 1000 fowls or has the capa city of one hen sitting constantly for nearly ten years The incubator is heated by means of a coil of eight steam pipes passing over the top of the egg chamber on one side and returning on the other These pipes are connected at one end of the structure to a water tank and heater The water flowing through the pipes is heated to exactly the right temperature a thermostat at tached to the stove opening and clos ing the drafts to make this possible The only attention required by the heater is supplying it with coal night and morning The thermostat is an expansion tank 10 by 18 inches which stands over the heater The tank is filled with oil in which is a float As the heat of the furnace warms the water the water in the jacket surrounding the heater ex pands and the float in the oil rises This movement closes a throttle at tached to the floatarm and shuts the draft of the heater another lever at the same time opens the coldair draft of the furnace In this way the tem perature is regulated automatically with extremely little variation the eggs being kept at 102 degrees F A second novel feature is that the heat of the eggs is regulated by rais ing or lowering them in the egg cham ber which is nearly a foot high in side burlap separating it from the pipes The egg trays rest on double frames hinged by galvanized arms or levers As the chicles develop the trays are lowered on these supports the first drop being made in six days and others at intervals until on the twentyfirst day the trays are rest ing on the bottoms of the chambers All infertile eggs are tested out on the seventh day Mr Hall built small incubators at first but the oil bill for forty of his small incubators with 8000 eggs ca pacity was 150 for a season while a large incubator was run three months at an expense of less than 8 for coal I THE IMMORTAL J NJJ Most Picturesque of Characters

for the first time in the history of the American navy a woman has the rank of ship keeper The woman is Mrs Albert H Met calfe She has been placed in charge of the navy yard at Sacketts Harbor N Y on

the gun and his hand didnt shake a bit He had a business look in his eye so when he told me to throw up my hands I done so without no argument How much of a haul have you made he asked pleasantly I told him only a few spoons and that it was a lowdown trick to pinch a man who hadnt got enough to pay for his troubleHe acknowledged there was a hoss on me and then asked me if I was a amatoor or could I blow up a safe without rousin the neighborhood If you have the materials with you to crack a safe says he why you an mell divide the spoils- I acknowledged that I had come prepared to open anything in the hardware line and then with his gun pinted he backed me out of the room to one adjoinin where there was a safe in the wall Then he told me to go to work and sat down in a chair with his pistol turned my way Well sir to make the story short I opened that safe with this pelican superintendin the job There was wads o long green in a tin box that would choke a cow likewise diamonds and other shiners The boss o the business sorts em over careful and when the box was clean empty he hands me over some old breastpins and napkin rings and a babys silver mug and told me that that was my share while he pockets the rest as calm as ye please Now then about face anti dont kick for this gun is likely to go off says he and heads me back to the window through which Id entered Git through

very unreformed profanity as the picture of that night rose to mem ory When Id got on me feet I heard a pistol go off in the house an a yell for help and knowed who done itThere was nothing for me to

To left mill to right through the fluids the regiments were pushing ahead At inter vals groups of officers left the road and struck out toward the northwest joining their troops And as we settled down to a steady trot Lowenburg explained to me the movement then tinder way The hulk of the German army lay at this time between the Mouse and the confluence of the Aire and the Alsne rivers These two streams run In a generally northwest direction and almost parallel for some l fifty tunes being nowhere more than ten tulles apart Between them and extend lug for perhaps thirty miles lies the Forest of Argonne a rugged and densely wooded area consisting mainly of a single line of irregular hills varying In height and end ing at the river junction In a bold precipitous headland On the east the Aire a rather sump hut deep stream has in the course of its centuries of HoW cut sharply Into the hillside On the west the hills slope gradually to the Aisne forming a pleasant valley from one to three miles wide and under a high state of cultivation At the foot of the hills a tine road winds northward following generally the course of the river According to the main plan of Invasion the Germans intended to skirt the northern end of he Argonne Forest cross the Aisne at its junction with the Aire and proceed west to Reims The French were known to be moving slowly north from their great camp near ChaloussurMarne to bar the German advance to assist in which operation a strong detachment under General Messonier was moving northwest from BarleDnc following the road through the Argonne Valley This latter move was intended as a coup but so perfect were the German sources of Information that it became known on the second day Time Emperor Issued orders for an Immediate advance of the left wing then resting south of the Chateau anti consisting entirely of heavy cavalry to push directly west cross the Argonne Forest and fall upon the French column To Lowenberg with his magnificent

which had been bridged some hours before by a pontoon corps In the shadow of high Argonne hills it was in tensely dark I could not but feel the seriousness of my situation as we scrambled up through the dense woods I thought of Aimee and for a time heartily wished myself back at the chateau looking Into her beautiful eyes and listening to the music of her voice I knew however waytowe reached the top of the ridge my Inter est In the approaching fight drove all other thoughts from my mind Following the usual methods every precaution was taken to avoid unnecessary noise and lancer scouts were sent south whispersEven whinnylugThe hill sloped sharply away In front and Lowenberg and I standing in advance of the line had an unobstructed view Far below us the serpentine Alsne wound its way north showing here and there in the peacefulere a few hours could pass hell would be let loose in that quiet valley upbesidebearllll1fncesaid that the Emperor had ordered him af ter us to serve as a personal guard He was a powerful man with massive chest and shoulders Six foot six he stood and upLowenbergother and heaved us over his head Yet heavily muscled as ho was he was quick of action No one In the barracks could stand against him in a wrestling bout Iwax glad to have him near Hardly had I greeted the big sergeant N51Cowhen I became conscious of a faint rumbling sound to the south I held my hand to my ear straining to hear and inter pret the sound Flcischmann heard it at the same moment He gripped my arm Listen he said it is the French can non coming north For some time we stood in attitudes of keen suspense A breeze Mew lightly from the south rustling the tree tops The sound came againa low welldefined roll as of heavy wheels on a hard road For full a minute we heard it plainly then it died away as the breeze fell They are not less than live miles away creepWellWe descended through the forest and reaching the end of the woods worked south After advancing a couple of miles the lines reformed and awaited the ap proach of the unsuspecting Gauls Scouts reported the road two hundred yards way Later carte the lancer skirmishers They hall seen the French a division of cavalry followed by infantry and Held batteries twenty thousand men more or less They were covering about six miles an hour It was a trying wait Lowenberg conferred with his officers and I could hut stand there beside Fieischmann quivering with excitement I wondered what 1 should do when the crisis arrived I was armed with revolver and sabre but I did not wish to light for I was friendly to the French Yet I knew that I could not now withdraw that they would strike at me and that I must strike back or go down Finally the clatter of hoofs sounded around a bend in the road and a minute later the cavalry appeared AVith helmets and trappings Hashing in the pale moonlight they thundered by a streams of horse men a mile long hurrying forward to select daylighttheir night march A long interval of silencethen the tramp of infantry steady and regular like the skylightenedcause in sight advancing In columns of four We waited until they were well a long in front of us A tulle of the column had passed I saw Lowenberg draw his re volver the critical moment had arrived longW0deep with a space of ten yards between The hussars formed the center with Low enberg Fleischmauu and myself close be

with his steed Flclsclunanii closed in seized him by the collar dragged him out of the melee and passed on through his burden fairly under his arm A moment later Lowenberg was in the saddle and Fleischmann sliding to the ground hind hounded upon the back of a huge riderless horse and was once more cut ting and slashing right and left Our division now separated and drove the frightened infantrymen north and south They lad no chance to form nor even to load They threw down their guns and fled a mob a rabble every man for himself The then degenerated into merely a pursuit The cavalry at the head of the column and the artillery at the rear became inextricably involved with the fleeing in fantr men anal after a feeble attempt to stand joined in the flight to the river which was wide and shallow We pursued them for several miles in the direction of Chalons not caring to overtake them al though our men raid them un mercibully with the new quintuple bullets Their loss of life was not heavy but the ground was strewn with wounded and with guns knapsacks belts and equip ment of every description Such an utter demoralization I could not have Imagined Our success was complete A detail of two regiments was left to care for the dead and wounded of whom we hall but few and to gather up and to bring to camp the abandoned equipment It was eight oclock when we started north to join the army The sun was just peeping over the Argonne hills and as the first ray the helmets of our cuirassiers r thought of Latour I could him standing there in the of the chateau his broad back

German cocksurcncss At any rate there was no apprehension of failure Every Juan In that vast army felt of success We were just leaving the baloonsheds when an orderly from headquarters rode up and

by leaps and bounds A conversation with one of the leading artificers in this line elicited many interesting facts He scorns hair from Chinese man or woman deeming it fit only for the fringestransformations and other good manufacturers of arti ficial hair frequent are mainly in Ger many Austria France and Italy The idea that girls selling their hair deprive themselves of all their tresses at once is it seems erroneous A girl blessed with long silky hair and wishing to make money out of it goes to the hair merchant and tells him ex actly how much of it she will part with or she divides the hair herse and offers it to him to be cut off Sad to relate the hair merchants as a class have the reputation of sharp if not actually dishonest dealings and they are so lacking in principle and sympathy that they invariably clip PALISADE PATTERNS off more than their allowance the girl having to submit It is only from convents that the entire hair of a womans head can be had and the sale of the hair cut off a nuns head when she takes the veil isa valuable item in some convents incomes Hair bought from the ordinary mer chant of the class described is more often than not fraudulently weighted with grease and dirty matter and fre quently the purchaser loses about 30 per cent before the hair is cleansed The cost of thoroughly cleaning and working up this bought hair is enor mous and as only skilled workers can do it the seller of the made up article must make about 50 per cent on the price he gave to the merchant before he realizes any profit It may ease the minds of ladies wearing artificial hair to know that the cleaning of the hair is thorough and effectually de stroys any danger of disease from un healthy germs Every hair has to be fastened in with the root up and the point down as it grows on the head or it will not lie smooth and even The exact shade has to be matched from many different lots of hair and length and texture have also to be studied TURNS

enormous acreage 15000000 Jbushels of seed will be required Probably but little thought is given by the average farmer to the germin ating quality of the seed used for he has so long been accustomed to get ting a stand under ordinarily favor able conditions varying from 60 to 85 per cent that many have come to think a more complete stand impos sible Yet experiments have shown that barring unfavorable weather at planting time the work of grubs wire worms and the like there is no reason why a stand of corn should be less than 95 per cent Of recent years how ever conditions have much improved and never before has there been such a demand for seed corn of high vital ity Some of our best farmers are be ginning to realize that one of the great est factors in profitable corn produc tion is the use of seed which will show a high per centage of germination- If each corn grower would give a little time during the early spring to the testing of the seed the vitality of each individual ear of corn intended for planting could be readily determined The poor ears could then be discarded and the millions of bushels of seed corn which fail to grow each spring could be very profitably converted in to pork and beef Of the 15000000 bushels of seed corn which will be planted this year it is almost certain that from two to three million bushels or nearly 20 per cent of the corn first planted will fail to grow as a result of the low vitality of the seed Thou sands of acres will have to be replant ed either in their entirety or in part and many thousands more will grow to maturity with an imperfect stand I TESTING RACK It seems incredible of realization that the average yield of corn in the United States in 1905 when the total production was the largest in our his tory was only 288 bushels of shelled corn per acre It is still more sur prising to know that the average pro duction per acre is practically the same today as it was forty years ago In fact the average yield per acre for the ten years from 1866 to 1875 was 2607 bushels as compared with 252 bushels for the ten years from 1896 to 1905 While there are several rea A eons for this the principal reason isl probably carelessness in the use of seed of low vitality To Test Each Corn Ear The statement is made by officials of the Department of Agriculture that while corn breeders have achieved marked success in the production of improved types of corn during the last decade unless the farmers take better of their seed corn and test each ear separately preparatory to planting the chances are that the average yield of corn per acre in the United States will not be materially increased In our principal corngrowing States corn is planted in hills 31i feet apart each way giving 3556 hills per acre In most sections three stalks to the hill is considered a perfect stand in some States two is the standard Yet if each hill would produce but one medium sized ear 6 or 7 inches in length and weighing a trifle more than 9 ounces the yield for each acre would be 288 bushels the average yield per acre In the United States in 1905 A single ear of corn to the hill the size shown as A in the illustration would give an average of 288 bushels to the acre a single ear shown as B would give 30 bushels per acre an ear such as C would produce 40 bushels acre an ear such as D would yield 45 bushels per acre while an ear like E which weighs a trifle less than a pound would yield 50 bushels of shelled corn per acre count ing only one such ear for each of the 3556 hills There are however very few farmers who raise as much as 50 bushels of shelled corn per acre Yet every corn grower can probably pro duce many ears which are larger than that shown as E in the cut Eliminat ing however both ears D and E and granting that every farmer could har vest from each hill two such ears as the one shown as C an ear which is less than 8 inches long and weighs 126 ounces the yield would be 80 bushels of shelled corn per acre Are there any corn growers who can not produce the equivalent of at least two such ears to every hill How many grow 80 bushels of shelled corn per acreThe time required to test individual ears for vitality is very small when it is considered that 12 or 15 ears will furnish enough seed to plant one acre Experiments have shown that if a few kernels preferably six are taken from different parts of an ear of corn and all are found to germinate well that is to produce good healthy sprouts practically all of the kernels on that ear will likewise snow strong vitality On the other hand if the part of all of MAKES THE CORN LOW the kernels tested fail to germinate or show only weak sprouts the proportion will be the same for all of the her ison such ears And the experienced corn grower will be not a little surprised to find many a fine looking ear of corn among his seed the kernels of which will not sprout at all Better Now Than Not at All Germination tests should be made five or six weeks before planting time but even if it is necessary to stop the plow in the field it is far more profi table to have a good stand of corn on 19 acres than it is to have a poor stand on 20 acres thereby saving the time and labor necessary to prepare the and to plant and cultivate the additional acre Yet many farmers are every year planting and cultivating 3 or 4 acres in every 20 for which they receive comparatively no returns In making the tests it is essential that each ear tested should be given a number and all kernels taken there from given a corresponding number so that after the tests the faulty ears may be thrown out Many kinds of germinating boxes and methods for testing seed corn have been described in various publications but the Department of Agriculture has designed a simple box which is be lieved to combine most of the advan tages and give results in the hands of almost any operator The box would be about 11 or 2 inches deep inside and the length and width such as to suit the needs of the individual farmer but it should not be made wa tertight Instead of filling the box with sand soil or as is commonly recommended the seed bed is made of heavy canton flannel or similar ma SIMPLE GERMINATING BOX care per terial using two or three thicknesses of cloth in the bottom of the box and one or two thicknesses of cloth for covering the kernels after the frame has been filled The cloth at the bottom should be marked off into squares 2 inches each way and numbered each one of which is to be filled with kernels from ears which are given a number corresponding to the square used A Very Simple Test For use first wet the cloth thoroughly by soaking in water and then place the half cloth double thickness which has been marked in squares in the hot From FarmIng A BUNCH OF FINE SEED tom of the germinating box The from ear No 1 are then germ side up in square No 1 and so on When all of the squares have been filled fold the other end of the cloth carefully over the kernels If during the sampling the cloths have become dry sprinkle well with water cover the box with a piece of glass or other tight material to prevent the evaporation of the water from the cloths and set the box aside for a few days to await the results of the test Where only a limited number of ears are to be tested a similar germinating apparatus may be made by using cloth between two dinner plates Ten inch plates will give ample space for the testing of 18 or 20 ears at one time It is important that the ears be numbered or arranged in the same definite order as the corresponding tests in the germinating box One of the most satisfactory methods is the use of a rack as is generally used for drying seed corn This is generally a piece of 2 by 2 inch piece of pine from which extend on all four sides long nails each of which is numbered After the kernels from the first ear have been placed in square No 1 of the germinating box the ear is shoved on nail No 1 of the drying rack and so on These racks can then be WHAT AVERAGE selected ground good sawdust kernels placed them suspended in some suitable place and there need be no fear of the ears be ing mixed while the germination test is in progress The kernels in the testing box should begin to germinate freely a bout the third or fourth day but the counting should not be done until the sixth or seventh day or until most of the shoots or stems are from 1 to 1 inches long This part of the testing must be done with considerable care and requires good judgment as her nels will be found in all stages of de velopment If the six kernels in any one square in the germinating box show six good healthy sprouts the ear GROW LIKE CORNHILL which they represent should be taken for seed There will also be cases in which all six kernels have germinated but will be lacking in vigor While these kernels might produce good ear of corn the chances are that they will never develop or else will produce but barren stalk It is only necessary to remember that all ears showing dead kernels or weak and poorly devel oped sprouts must be discarded and only those used for seed in which every kernel tested has given good healthy sprout The ears which have shown perfect germination are now ready to be butted and tipped and shelled for planting In order to in itIears planting into two or three grades ac cording to the size of the kernels This grading may also be done by screening if more convenient Remarkable Results of Government Tests The Department of Agriculture recently made tests of seed corn fur producing1906 or the startling percentage of more than onehalf were unfit for seed These samples were taken from picked for seed by good careful far mers and are evidently much above the average The average germination of the 1906 poor ears was only 777 POOR SMUTTY SEED germinationears seeds of which would ordin arily have been used for planting had not these tests been made was 863 per cent showing that 137 per cent was gained by discarding ears of low vitality Granting however that the samples tested are representative of the present supply of seed corn the testing of every ear and the subsequent rejection of poor ears will increase the stand 137 per cent This increased stand would mean an increased yield of 298140695 bushels with value of 10073991291 calculated on the basis COMMON DINNER PLATE FOR SEED TESTERS of the average yield and price for last ten years A full description of how to make tests is found in Farmers Bulletin No 253 by J W T Duvel which can be

and daughters of the farmer pioneers They have been brought up to lives of idleness and luxury or suf fered from monotony of country sur roundings In either case the direct cause for mental derangement is the lack of diversified work for body and mind The pioneers of the country had no time for brooding over imagin ary troubles and were happy But they neglected to map out the proper courses for their children and inI treating them with kindness have paved the way to insanity The cities present numerous cases of physical and mental wrecks of young persons brought on by dissipation and strenuosity in the battle for commercial supremacy Farmers warn their and daughters of the dangers that lie in their paths when leaving the farms but often forget to correct the evils at home They give their children all the benefits of schools and colleges and leave out the essential fundamental principles of life Too many are left to remain in idleness because they are taught in CAN NOT YOU TWO EARS E TO EACH a a a a ears the a the sons schools and at home that manual labor is not honorable There is no reason why farm life should become monotonous to any one residing with in the boundaries of ordinary civiliza tion The rural mail carries the daily papers and magazines to the farm door yard telephones place the farmer in direct communication with the out side world railroads open the channels of trade to every commercial port yet there is a life of monotony on many farms The places are not improved the owners follow the fashions of their forefathers they do not adopt new methods in any line and their children become discouraged OLDEN DAYS OF WHALING The days of the oldtime whaling fleets when more than two hundred fullrigged ships sailed out of New Bedford harbor on three and four year voyages to the most distant and dangerous seas were over more than half a century ago The right of Greenland whale of the Arctic waters with his mouth full of whalebone and his cousin the sperm whale of tropi cal waters bearing in its head the precious spermaceti were practically exterminated by those alldaring iron nerved keeneyed Yankee skippers Their splendid ships the Annie B the Mary Jane the BlueEyed Susan great lovers of their wives and sweet hearts were this race of gentlemen ad venturersrotted at the wharves or were degraded to service as coastwise and with them vanished a world of romance and adventure No men in no time more truly than they went down to the sea in ships But when the pennant of the last oldtime whaling ship was hauled down forever there still proudly swam the oceans the vast rorqual or racer whale greatest of all his mighty kin To the sailing fleet of the old days the rorqual was an almost impossible prize because of its tremendous speed It was practically unmolested and mul tiplied exceedingly in both North At lantic and Pacific waters It was the abundance of this levi athan measuring ninety feet in length and weighing almost as many tons bulking larger than a whole herd of el ephants which was the inspiration of the modern whaling industry At least one American has sue ceeded in Loridon journalism Ralph D Blumenfeld late

concerns and concerns for general printing only are fairly well equipped for their work Some of them attempt work in the line of high grade magazine and book publishing and while it is not always an unmixed success from a technical typographical standpoint it demon strates that the Chinese workmen who do most of the work under for eign supervision will in time ac quire considerable merit in this line of effortIt rather interesting to note that China at present seems to be passing through much the same pro cess with its newspapers and other publications that many parts of the United States have passed through All over the empire native newspap ers are being started in the collo quial dialects and are more or less local in character- It is unfortunate in many re spects that the
