MONSTER FISH LADY ANGLER LANDED BIG JEW FISH OFF SANTA CATALINA ISLAND CALIFORNIA Finny Monsters of Three Hundred Pounds and Upwards are Now Caught With Rod and ReelJew fish a Gamey Fellow Women who enjoy angling and in fact everybody who likes to hunt and fish will be interested in the exploit with rod and reel of Mrs A W Bar rett of Los Angeles Cal The fish in the case was a black sea bass or Jew fish of the Pacific Ocean weight 368 pounds caught off Santa Catalina Isl and Cal last month by Mrs Barrett after 53 minutes of strenuous battle The black sea bass of the Pacific one of the gamiest of its kindis in season on the Southern California coast from about April to November and affords favorite sport to anglers of both sexes Owing to its great size it cannot of course be pulled with rod and line into the boat so after one is hooked the plan is to play it and tire it out and then as it comes exhausted to the surface of the water alongside the boat the boatman thrusts his gaff into it and tows the conquered levia than ashore Up to twelve years ago no one dreamed of landing these monsters of the deep except with heavy hand lines but since General C D Viele U S A one summer day in 1894 managed to secure one with rod and reel no true angler thinks of fishing for them in any other way than with a rod A wellknown fisherman in describ ing his experience with this fish in the Nature Library states that he has seen a 200 pound black sea bass or jewfish snap the largest shark line like a thread and large specimens straighten out an Iron sharkhook while at the same time skilled wielders of the rod catch these giants of the tribe with a line no larger than an eyeglass cord His first experience with the Cali fornia jewfish was a most remarkable one When we got out to the fishing ground he stateduthe anchor was tossed over the rope ran merrily out and the hook baited with a 6pound whitefish went hissing down to the big submerged rock- Sometimes he Lite sometimes he dont remarked Toe but whether he do or not we have the fishin all the same And he looked at me inquir ingly to see if I was of that variety JEWFISH BY MRS BARRETT of fishermen who are never unless the fish are always on the line It so happened that I found pleasure in the mere anticipation and we sat silent for half an hour I holding the throbbing line that the ebbing tide played upon as the string of a musical instrument I glanced at my companion and was wondering if in his veins ran the blood of the Aztecs or of the Indians whom Cabrillo and others found here centuries ago when Santa Catalina was an empire in it self and by them when sud denly I became aware that tae ten sion of the line I held had increased to a steady pull then came a jerk that carried my hand Into the water Jewfish sure whispered Joe awakened from his reverie by my ex clamation Slack- I paid out the line while he seized the anchorline and made ready to haul up Give him 10 feet and then hook were my orders I was an old shark fisherman hav ing caught many of these monsters in the Mexican Gulf and had taken a Florida jewfish and a tarpon and I saw that work of a similar kind was before me now The line jerked heavily in my hand then began to run steadily When about 6 feet had gone over the gunwale stopped gave a glance at the coil to see that all was clear and when the line came taut jerked the hook into my first jewfish- I have every reason to believe that the latter was astonished as for a single second there was no response then came a jerk that almost lifted me from the boat and the line went hiss ing over the rail like a living thing playing a merry hornjipe of its own composition Nothing could stop such a rash and I simply waited while Joe pulled up the anchor When the latter was in I grasped the line and back for the fight The light boat whirled around like a top and away we went like a tug surging through the water an ominous wave of foam rising high around the bow A 10foot shark never pulled harder than this gamey fish and for 5 minutes it was a question who was master I took it in with the greatest difficulty gaining 10 feet only to have the fish rush toward me and then dash away with an impetus that was more than irresistible Then I would stop him again slowly making foot by foot hand over hand taking a turn on the cleat slacking and pulling in attempts to tire the monstertactics that for a while were of no avail One of the tricks of this fish was to stop and jerk his head from side to side violently a proceeding that pro strikingblowsmendous jerks that came one two three then one twq three then the line would slacken as the fish rushed up And if I took the line in quickly enough to prevent a turn well and good if I did not the fish would turn and dash at the bottom making every thing hum and sing Giving and taking hauling and eas ing off for 20 minutes I was almost satisfied that I had done my whole duty in the premises when suddenly the fish rushed up and recovering I took in slack and with a final effort brought the black giant to the surface For a moment I saw a pair of eyes as large as those of an ox a rich chest nut black and then with a tremen dous heave the fish threw itself over deluging me with water and half cap sizing the boat It was the last struggle I kept my hold and with another haul had the king of Pacific coast at haudSlengtb

reception tendered him by the House of Representatives where some 1500 guests were invited That the passage of w UNCLE JOE CANNON time was not worrying Uncle Joe was manifested by the hearty handclasps with which he greeted his friends as well as the salutations extended to those who confused years with age Uncle Joe was seventy years young President Roosevelt joined in the ovation offering the Speaker his hearty congratulations not because he was getting old but because he was doing it gracefully Mr Cannon did two things which might worry many a younger man First he had to sign something over a thousand photographs of himself which were given to the guests as souvenirs and again he shook hands with the guests upon re ceiving an equal number of personal congratulationsThere many sly digs and remarks regarding the buzzing of the presidential bee around Mr Cannons head and one of the throng remarked at the close of the reception Any man who can stand and shake hands with

WASHINGTON Games Played Before Cabinet Offi cers Diplomats and Congress men Washington ofboththe Cabinet and the diplomatic corps sit side by side with the merchant artisan and government clerk all keenly enjoying the national pastime nationsinthe highest degree and are glad to eschew court decisions railroad and other legislation national and inter national topics for the less weighty decisions of the diamond As soon as theCapitoldistinguishedbaseselves to National Park for an after noon of enjoyment rooting for their favorite teams and resting from af fairs of State The different teams throughout the country like to visit Washington for the privilege of playing before the most distinguished spectators to be found in any country on the globe Members of the local teams very quickly recognize the faces of the on lookers and take pardonable pride in pointing out to the visitors the big guns of the nations It is an impartial crowd too which sits in judgment on the work of the athletes on the dia mond and good play Is appreciated and applauded no matter which side makes the exhibition There are nine judges on the Supreme Court bench and a majority at the ball park is not an unusual spectacle A quartet is a cer tainty comprising Associate Justices Harlan Day McKenna and White who can often be seen engaged in discussing a knotty point regarding a foul or strike or close base play showing as much seriousness as though some intricate problem re garding the flag the Philippines or the tariff was under question Justice Day is probably the best posted on the national game of any of his associates on the Supreme bench for he has played it and never misses an exhibition when he is in the city and a ball game is advertised ARDENT CONGRESSIONAL FANS There are nearly five hundred congressmen in the two branches of the national legislature ind it is pretty safe to predict that fully onehalf ot this number are interested attendants during the championship season They are not at all dismayed at the pros pect of a long season of Congress when sure of an afternoons recrea tion following a longdrawn war of words at the Capitol earlier in the dayPresident Roosev It a few

when he goes out to witness the national game his favorite place being just back of first base where he can command an uninterrupted view of the entire field Surgeon General Wyman was a pitcher in his early days and when not busy with quaraiitine matters or other details relating to the public health he finds his greatest enjoyment in witnessing a championship contest between two evenly matched

She suggests to the parent that in the home there should be im portant training of the children but the idea is never advanced excepting in a spirit of kindliness and of the broad est kind of sympathy Her love for the masses is not simulated it is the joy of her heart She has paid the rent for many a widow and orphan has helped out so that the little ones may attend school and has provided the mother with employment so that the home may be kept together Mrs Coxes home like her life is the paragon of modesty she leads the simple life in all its real simplicity Her chief aim seems to be to assist the poor and needy She has no pet phil anthropics there are no endless calls upon her time from society folk there are no wonderful gowns no costly mil linery no splendor of jewels laces or sables adorn her person It is not after all the charity which she dispenses that has won for her the love and admiration of the toilers of the mines and that of their wives and little ones but it is the purity of her character that constantly teaches a beautiful lesson not only to the mining town but to the world at large which may study to its own improvement the generous unselfish sacrificing

FOUNDATION FOR AN EN UURING SOCIAL STRUCTURE An Address by George H Maxwell at Bloomington HI Showing How This Principle Will Overcome Op pression by Combination of Capital Mr President and Gentlemen of the Convention I am a profound believer in the capacity of the human race to work out the high destiny of which it is capable if its genius is rightly directed I am a most extreme optimist in my expec tations of what the peoph of this na tion will eventually accomplish in se curing in fact as well as in theory not only equal rights but equal opportun ity for all men and the achievement by all our people of the highest average standard of life of wlich all are cap able and which can be brought within the reach of all Unless this is accomplished our boasted civilization will be but a wave on the great ocean of time ris ing into a brief existence only to be submerged as all the civilizations that have gone before us have been sub merged beneath the rottenness and corruption which has followed in evitably in the wake of vast accumu lation of wealth and the gradual ab sorption of the land into great estates HANDWRITING ON THE WALL Already in this country the hand writing is on the wall and he who runs may read the warning which Byron painted in words when he is a moral of all human tales TIs but the same rehearsal of the past First freedom and then glorywhen that fails- Wealth vice corrUPtiOnbarbarism at last vajHathOur history m that page and I am itiJl m why and to tell you that your movement in the line of cooperation is one of the reasons why we will escape the fate that has at last destroyed all the great nations of the past But we have already reached the stage of wealth vice corruption No one who knows what goes on in this country doubts that for a moment If any one questions it he should read the recently published book entitled The Shame of the Citi by Lincoln are these dangers to be safeguarded against THE CAR OF JUGGERNAUT It cannot be done by purifying the cities because they cannot be purified Man will not rise above his environ ment or the dominating influence of that environment and the influence which controls all things in our mod ern city is the mad race for wealth It is a car of juggernaut which crushes public and private integrity and morality and every just conception of patriotism under its wheels as it rolls ruthlessly onward driven by the multitude who are ready to sacrifice not only themselves but their country in the great gamble for quickly gained wealthWe closed up the Louisiana lottery in a burst of righteous public indigna tion because it was encouraging the gambling mania and corrupting the district attorney of New York has recently set the machinery of the law in motion to stop the operations of a gambler named Canfield In St Louis and Grand Rapids the foul brood of bribegivers and bribe takers has been held up to derision and disgrace and a few of them may be punished COOPERATIVE COMMONWEALTH But we have gone so far that cor ruption has become a business system and conditions in our cities will breed two corruptionists where one is pun ished Those conditions get worse and worse as the profits of preying upon the people become greater with the increase of the population of our cities and our political and social institutions are rotting at their very sour The corruption of our cities will in evitably taint and in the end control our national politics and the adminis tration of our national government Unless And here is the only safeguard Unless we plant the great majority of our people on the soil and maintain it there and the people themselves learn to do for themselves by co operation so that in the end we shall eventually become a great cooperative commonwealthI socialism as its devotees understand it or as it is usually defined and understood as a remedyI proposing the exact opposite ofitI am proposing the very highest form of individual rights opportunity activity and development Socialism Is to dream about doing things and to begin at the wrong end and fail Cooperation is to do things and to begin at the right end and succeed Cooperation is evolutionnot revo lutionEvolution is the law of God Evolution is the natural law which has controlled the creation of the earth and all that there is on it It is the law of the development of the human race and we need only to learn its lessons and study it as a method for the solution of every social problem to save the people of this nation from the social and political dangers that confront them today The trouble with most theories for the reform or betterment of social con ditions is that they are too radical Reformers Of that class plan an at adoptionsocial conditions which have been a slow growth through the centuries GROWTH MUST BE GRADUAL They would create a tree instantly and have it all complete and perfect at its creation doing it while you watch them like a Hindoo juggler They are not content to plant the acorn and let the sturdy oak of social strength grow gradually in accordance with the t law of nature and as was intended by the allwise Creator But we cannot charge Natures lawsThey are as unchangeable as the starsWhatever men may do they must first learn to do Every oppression from which the producers of this country or any other sufferer today is because they have not learned or been trained to do for themselves the things which they leave it to others to do for them And those to whom they leave such things to be done plan to make the greatest possible profit to themselves for doing them It is human nature that they should and always has been and always will be so- THE DELUSIONS OF POLITICS The delusion that you can protect producers from such oppressions by making laws or by electing this man or that man to office or putting this political party or that political party in power is a delusion which has long been maintained by a multitude of it is only a question of time when those who are misguided by this delusion will awaken from their dream and learn that there is no help for them but tq ip themselves and do things for thtmselves This great movement in the direc tion of doing things for themselves by cooperative methods among producers from the land is something more than a mere question of profit and loss It is the slow awakening of a slum bering giant who is just beginning to feel his strength and when he has finally raised himself up to his full height and trained his mind so that it can direct for his own protection all the faculties which God has given him he will look back with surprise and astonishment at the days when he imagined he was bound hand and foot by the Liliputians by whom he was surrounded AWAKENING OF THE GIANT Ajd it is in the awakening and training of this gianta symbolical embodiment of the abilities and ener gies of hQ people themselves which is the Jp jof this nation for the future You cannot Oppress a man who draws the rewards Of his toil straight from natures treasure vaultsgets it from the land itselfland which he ownsland on which no money lender holds a mortgageprovided always that that man has learned to coop erate with his fellow men of the same class to do for themselves the things which it is beyond the power of the individual man to do for himselfthe things which require the combined and cooperative effort of many men to accomplish THE PHILOSOPHY OF RUSKIN The broad solution of our social problems which I am presenting to you contemplates the creation of con ditions in this country under which we will carry into practical effect the sound philosophy of Ruskin when heAsaidBut since we live in an epoch of change and too probably Of revolu tion and thoughts which are not to be put aside are in the minds of all men capable of thought I am obliged to affirm the one principle which can and in the end will close all epochs of revolutionthat each man shall possess the ground he can use and no moreIt contemplates as a part of our public school system that every boy should be trained so that he will know how to till the land for a livelihood It contemplates that the rush to the cities shall be stopped by the better ment of all the conditions of rural life good roads nearby neighbors rural telephones net works of electric rail ways rural free delivery thickly settled communities and towns and villages in close proximity to every farm home so that every farmer may enjoy as well as the city dweller the advantages of schools and churches and libraries and gymnasiums and where art and music may be studied for enjoyment in the home as well as in the cities It contemplates that wherever the thing to be done for the benefit of such a community requires the effort of more than one man that those who require to have the thing done for them whatever it may be shall com bine together and do it for themselves provided it is within reach of the united and cooperative energy and capital of the aggregated number of individuals who require to have the thing done for them In this category are creameries laundries rural telephones associa tions for the cooperative purchase of supplies associations for the sale or disposition of the products of the soil and many other associations which I might mention for mutual economy mutual benefit or mutual protection In sections where irrigation is necessary cooperative canal systems and irrigation works come within this category and In many parts of the country where irrigation Is not now generally supposed to be necessary cooperative pumping plants rnlghtbeo established among farmers for the irrigation of lands which they coulcK in that way cultivate more inten sively and obtain a much larger yield and profit per acre than by dry farm ing CORPORATIONS SUBJECT TO PUBLIC CONTROL When you go beyond this field of cooperation you reach a field which is now largely occupied by large corporations which are exercising a pub lic use and for that reason subject to public control- I believe that eventually the public ownership of all public utilities is in evitable in this country but I am not a believer in the theory that we are ready today for municipal owner ship in all our cities or for the government ownership of all our railroads Municipal ownership without muni cipal integrity may be a greater evil than corporate ownership and the last condition of that man be worse than the first- I believe that political honesty must come before public ownership and that the only way we will ever get political honesty is to restore the great majority of our people to the land where they will live close to nature and learn the obligations of man to his fellow men and the im bylearningfor themselves HONESTY THE CORNERSTONE OF COOPERATION ran is the product of his environment Man will be what he Is trained K be And cooperation will train men to be honest with each other and With the public because honesty and integrity in the discharge of obliga thebornerWithout it cooperation is a house jbuilt upon the sands With such integrity cooperation Is a house built upon the eternal rocks as a foundation And so it is that your movement for the formation of farmers associations in order that you may transact for yourself the business of selling your own soil products is but a single thread in the great cable of cooperation which will finally warp our ship of state off the rocks and draw it to a safe anchorage The profits that you will make for yourself in the formation of these cooperative associations and their man agement is the least of the reasons which should impel you onward in the movementA IN OUR HISTORY W have reached a crisis in our countrys history- It is a crisis threatening greater danger than when the cloud of dis union swept up from the south and the nation was drenched in the blood of a civil war The cancer of corruption following In the wake of great wealth is eating out the vitals of our country- I have shown you that there is but one cure and it is to men of your class that we must look for this cure In training yourselves to cooperate together to do things for yourselves that one man cannot do for himself you are engaged in carrying out a patriotic purpose just as noble as though you had enlisted as a soldier to shoulder your arms and march t r the front and lay down your lifeyflf need be in repelling the army a foreign invader A- Ye are spending millions fol forts and navies and to maintain an army to protect ourselves against the other nations of the earth Our greatest danslsr is not from foreign nations Itr is in our midst It is at the very heart of our political and social life And you who are here today are pioneers in the great campaign which will result in overthrowing the cohorts of corruption which will otherwise destroy us- OPPOSITION A STIMULANT I have been told that your move ment meets with opposition Those who oppose it are most unwise It is the lesson of all periods of the history of our race that reform movements movements for the betterment of man kind even movements which merely purport to be for human betterment and are of questionable character have been strengthened and built up and perpetuated by opposition and per secutionNo stimulus to the growth of toLayeopposition rouses the combativeness and aggressiveness which is in every mans being stimulates him to greater effort and encourages him to persevere until obstacles have been overcome which would otherwise have caused failureSTRENGTH COMES FROM STRUGGLE It Is another law of nature that strength comes from strenuous strug gle The strong arm is the arm that is used The strong mind is the mind that thinks The strong man is the man who has developed every fibre of his physical vigor by use The strong races of the earth are those which have survived oppression and over come great obstacles in their develop mentBe not discouraged by any condition that may confront you Be not discouraged even by tempor ary failure It is the history of all movements that failure must at times be a part of their record But as the wise saying has it Failures are but the pillars of suc cessILLUSTRATIONS OF SUCCESSFUL COOPERA1ON What others have done you can do If you want successful illustrations of cooperation among producers go to California and study the workings of the associations which have been formed there among the fruit growers for the marketing of their product And the road to their success was paved with many failures At first it seemed as though there were more failures than successes If But they persevered They were forced to swim or drown They had to learn to market their own products or have their industries destroyed And they learned And so will you learn if you will persevere and be loyal to your fellows and to your movement If you want other illustrations of successful cooperation go among the cooperative creameries of Wisconsin or Michigan or go among the coop erative canal companies of California or Colorado or Montana If you want instances of gigantic Success in cooperation go to England i to Ireland and to Belgium and to Den mark and find it there- COOPERATIVE STORES IN ENGLAND The growth of the cooperative stores in England has been something marvelous Starting with practically nothing in the way of capital in a comparatively few years they have built up a business aggregating mil lions of dollars a year But they began right They began at the small end They began with the acorn and they gradually developed the tree until it has become a great strong oak If they had begun at the big end and subscribed a capital stock as large as their present capital and gone out into the highways ant byways to hire men to transacttheir business form ing a great organization in which no man was trained to his duties they would have failed hopelessly and miserably failed And so would any great business enterprise started in that way Cooperation can be no exception to the law of evolution You must begin with the seed and let it grow gradually as they did in England with their cooperative stores THE MAKING OF MEN- The great central thought which should be the pillar of fire by night and the pillar of cloud by day to lead the American people out of the wilderness of the corruptions and dangers of accumulated and aggregated wealth should be a great public movement in the line of making men rather than making money Our government is upheld upon the peopleAnd maintained physicaland our women just to that extent will the strength of our nation be maintainedIf be sure of this we flockingThe way to do it is to train them through a system of education whir will equip them to solve the problems of the country and plant the idea in their minds that the country after all offers a greater stimulus for mental activity than the city PROBLEMS OF TIE COUNTRY The most attractive problems of countryThe engineeringtion of power to the needs of the farm and the farm home the lessening of domestic burdens through better domestic arrangements the construc tion of rural electric railways and rural telephones and farm irrigations stemu and the application of machin ery to all the uses of the farm offer a field for effort and invention and the application of energy to the farmers boy which no city can offer to him provided he has had the opportunities of elmtion to qualify him to solve these problems There should be in every county in this country a school where every farmers boy could without going any from home than the county seat learn to do all the things which I have mentioned XGRICULTURE AND MANUAL TRAINING We have schools where a part of this training may be obtained The Throop Polytechnic Institute at Pasadena California and the Stout Man ual Training School at Menominee Wisconsin are of this class But coupled with them should be the agri cultural training which a boy gets at the Doylestown National Farm School or in part at the summer school of the Wisconsin State University at Mad isonAnd every girl should have an equal opportunity to fit herself for her duties as the mistress of a farm home Out of such homes will come a gen eration of strong conservative and in telligent men who w ill solve the great problems of this people and will solve them so gradually and steadily that no radical methods will ever need to be will put out of business the politician who wants to ride in blood up to his bridle bits like an erstwhile governor of Colorado or the present day politician who seeks to ride into public office on a wave of prejudice and champion the peoples rights with his voice while his hand like as not is in the pocket of some corporation Put not your faith in princes nor in politicians The Lord helps those who help themselvesSo as the people depend for re lief upon politics just that long will they be disappointed THE LARK IN THE MEADOW When they learn the lesson of the fable of the lark in the meadow and go to work to do things for them selves talk politics less and train themselves to do things by coopera tion more they will be surprised at the progress they will make in the right direction Politics and a dependence on the part of the people upon politics are the hope and the salvation of the cor ruptionists and the trusts and of every combination of capital which lives by skimming the cream from the industries of the people If you want the cream yourself you must do your own skimming You must not imagine for moment that what I have advocated is a mere theory It is far more than that It is a broad highway leading us out of the social and political bog in which we have been mired down There are instances here and there all over this country where the seed has been planted and is thriftily grow ing INDICATIONS OF THE MOVEMENT You see the movement at work in the increased interest in country life in nature study in the school in the establishment of such institutions as the Doylestown Farm Training School In Pennsylvania in the Pingree po tato patch idea and the vacant lot farm associations which are working it out in many cities You see it in the school gardens which are being established in so many places and In the Increased inter est in agricultural training as a part of our public school system You see it in the great upbuilding of the Department of Agriculture as one of the component parts of our national government and in the work e RED RUM A Temperance Lesson Copyrighted by We were standing at the counter of a sumptuous barroom in San Antonio where Barclay and the two English men in the party had met by appointment Barclay had a ranch to sell which the Englishmen two heavyset redfaced high hooted fellows were about to purchase I had acted as broker in the transaction and was well pleased with the price settled upon and anxious that no hitch oc cur to delay the immediate closing of the bargain The bartender put out four glasses and a bottle of liquor In anticipation of our order and the two Englishmen and myself poured a good three fing ers into our glasses but Barclay hesi tated a moment and then said I think Ill take sarsaparilla The Englishmen glanced at each other significantly Were not buying soft drinks today partner said one Barclay hesitatingly poured out a good sized drink and raised it to his lips and turned toward the English men who smiled their approval- A strange thing then occured Barclay took off his hat and looked into the crown of it for a minute and then set the untouched liquor on the bar again Gentlemen he said Youll have to excuse me but I cannot drink liquor Todd one of the Englishmen banged his fist down on the bar and exclaimedIf you cant drink with us you cant trade with usthats- all Barclay turned to him his face very white and said slowlyThent- he deal is off gentlemen Presently Barclay said Ill admit I should like to trade with you gentlemen but the trade can go to the devil if I have to drink whiskey in order to make it I will tell you why I cant drink liquor if you will listen a mom ment You may think it took courage to refuse to drink but I tell you it would have taken more courage to have accepted it He drew a news paper clipping from his pocket book and laid it down where we could all see it Thats exhibit No1 he re markedFor moment we started In amazement at the great black letters which spelled the word GUILTY The arti cle following said that John Barclay was convicted of murder in the first degree but that sentence was post poned through respect to the prison ers mother who dropped dead in the courtroom upon hearing the verdict Thats nice stuff for a man to read about himself eh said Barclay with MY ANGEL MOTHER CAME TO COMFORT ME a feeble smile He folded the slip put it back in his pocketbook ana produced another which read Barclay to be hanged on the twentyfirst instantGentlemen he said the immedi ate cause of those two notices was murder The prime cause waswell what is murder spelled backward Without waiting for an answer he traced the letters of the word with his pencil in the order suggested RED embarrassed silence followed Gentlemen the rum that I drank murdered my mother At that time continued Barclay my mother and I were living in a boarding house kept by an old maid of uncertain means and temper I had just returned from a cattletrading trip and was regaling the boys with a little upcountry gos sip and some hot rum I remember it was eleven oclock at night The whole scene comes back to me now the hot rumandwater laden air the great stove red with rage and energy There my remembrance of the scene ends that department Is doing to stimulate an interest in agriculture and the pros perity of those engaged In It You see it In the awakening inter est in cooperation everywhere in tecooperative associations that are being formed in the rapid giowth of co operative creameries and cooperative producers associations of all kinds TRIUMPH OF THE RURAL LIFE And the one thing which will make it more easily possible which will tend the most to draw the city dweller to the country and relieve the lonesome ness and isolation of the farm life are the good roads for which a great move ment Is now gathering force and the electric railway systems which are threading the rural districts in every thickly settled farmIng section of our countryAll are forerunners of the final triumph of the rural life and of a new era in this country when Menmak ing and not Money making will be our national slogan- A time like this demands strong men Great hearts true faith and ready hands Men whom the lust of office does not kill Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy Men who possess opinion and a will Men who have honor men who will not lie Men who can stand before a demagogue And damn his treacherous flatteries with out winking Toll men suncrowned who live above

rule are honest trust worthy men who would not consciously mislead you Whenever one of them advises you to take loose grocery store When I awoke I was horrified to find myself in a prison cell The jailer stood at the door and cautioned Remember anything you say may be used against you A great dread sat like a lump of ice on my heart I begged him to explain Anything but that awful suspense Then he told me I had murdered MissC the old landlady My trial was set down for a date about a month off and my angel moth er secured the best and ablest coun sel to defend me but best of all she came to me in my agony and put her hand on my forehead and then kissed me and told me that she believed me innocent How she could logically do it with evidence enough against me to damn an angel I dont know but she did it with her womans heart and her womans heart broke when at length the jury told her she had been mistakenGentlemen resumed Barclay after a pause I used to believe all lawyers rascals until that tima But the way that man worked for me was nothing short of sublime He labored with me day in and day out morning noon and night striving by all means known to philosophy science and prac tice to recover from the sensitive plates of my memory the picture print spiritbetweentwo A M on the night of the murder But it was of no use Evidently the films of memory had been temporarily desensitized by the stupefying influ ence of the alcohol Anyway nothing could bring the dreaded pictures of that awful period to the surface- I shall not bore you with the har rassing details of the trial It was shown however that I had been dis covered in Miss Cs room I was on the floor in a drunken sleep when the officers arrived and was completely dressed even to my overcoat and hat Near my right hand as if I had but recently relaxed my hold upon it lay my pistol One of the cartridges had been discharged and the bullet found in Miss Cs body fitted the empty shellMy lawyer used to come to my cell and implore me to use every trick and device that I knew to bring back the chain of events of that fateful night but I could only gaze at him stupid ly So far I could go but no further At a certain point the cloud of obliv ion would drop before my mind and I could not penetrate it I thought that by thinking with great rapidity and running with exact sequence along the chain of occurences leading up to a certain hour the mental mom entum thus acquired might carry me through into the realms of my mental darkness But it was without avail You can drive a horse at a furious rate right up to the brink of a lake but there he will stop and not budge an inch further and the blackness of the lake in front of him is no blacker than the blackness of that hellborn period of five or six hours of oblivion that confronted me 0 the helplessness of it all I used to sit and watch my lawyer fight against such overwhelm ing odds that the admiration I felt for his skill would at times so absorb me that I felt the part I was taking in the awful tragedy To make a long story short the case finally went to the jury You have seen the newspaper clippings The verdict killed my mother who had never once left my side during the trial except at night and then only to resume her place the first thing in the morning She had been hoping against hope When mother dropped dead I offered a silent prayer of gratitude that she had not lived to witness the last act On the morning of the twentyfirst as the clipping says I was brought before the judge an old friend of my father and sentenced to be hanged by the neck until dead Gentlemen theres an experience not many ever had and lived to tell of it Words are but feeble when one tries to describ- eit Talk about timely rescues in the dramasall nicely planned to occur with the regularity of clockworkwhy they actually had that awful black cap drawn over my face and the noose ad justed before the governors stay are rived I heard a commotion in the crowd and wondered rather impatiently what the delay was about Then hands removed the cap and noose and I was led back to my cell When reached my cell and sat upon my bedIjI couldnt realize what had occured and pinched myself to see whether 1 y coffee instead of Arbuckles ARIOSA he doubtless believes he is doing you a favor whereas he is really depriving you of the most wholesome and deli cious beverage that you can buy some thing better than anything else he can sell you for the price The sales of Arbuckles ARIOSA Coffee exceed the sales of all other package coffees in the United States combined and the busi ness of Arbuckle Bros exceeds that of the four next largest concerns in the world simply because the public ac tually receives better coffee for their money in Arbuckles ARIOSA

makes one feel 0like doing thingsno after depression United States soldiers drink more cof fee than the soldiers of any other na tion were really there or my spirit had come back to haunt the place Presently the head jailer came to me and told me that a fire had taken place in the neighborhood the night before in which two strange men were so badly burned that death was but a matter of hours with them One of the men when he was told that he could not live sent for the minister and confessed to having committed the murder I had been convicted of His story which was subsequently confirm ed by the other burglar was substan tially that they had come to our town in quest of proper prey They had learned that Miss C had many welltodo boarders in her house some of whom carried money with them in large amounts and they had determin ed to rob the house The hour was late and the night very tempestuous and black the very elements seeming to favor the wicked purpose of those men Their plan was to go to Miss Cs room and secure the keys of the house after which they could loot at leisure Accidently however they awakened the landlady who immedi ately set up such an unearthly scream ing that it was found necessary to despatch her without more ado One shot was enough for the dastardly purpose and the poor old creature who had never done any other harm than to ask for her just dues went quickly over the river The robbers then paused for a moment to ascertain if anyone in the house had been arous ed by the shot Concluding finally that the storm had drowned the re port of the pistol they determined to leave at once as the murder had so unnerved them that they had no thought of theft but cared only to get away As they were going out however they discovered a man lying In the hall at the landing near Miss Cs door in a drunken stupor Then it occured to them to drag the man noiselessly into her room and leave him there with a pistol on the floor near his hand Their motive in doing this was to divert suspicion from them selves as they were strangers in the place When they discovered that I had a pistol in my pocket similar to their own they exchanged catridges hence the empty shell in mine Gentlemen that is my story Presently he said- I know theres one question you all want to ask You want to know what Ive got in my hat that had such a startling effect upon me I will

the days of rbarism had returned so wide and rvid is the craze for beads buckles and bracelets were it not for the fact that each article which is donned ains that distinction by reason of its rmony or contrast Color plays a gr eat part in the present sartorial drama and the fashionable woman is always seeking for effect in its use Beads in the form of necklaces are worn in all colors and they are used to further accentuate some color tone in the costume The necklace worn with e lingerie blouse is often chosen to atch die hat and gloves or to offer a becoming note of contrast to a mono ne ensemble A girl of today does t own one necklace but a dozen some of them expensive but the majority costing from 2 to 5 each So greendamber is returned to favor with prettiest necklaces recently seen are those of shell from Honolulu with coloring of wondrous beauty They come in all of the pastel shades while the bluegrays greens pale yellows and old rose are beautifully combined The shells are very small and alive with color The necklaces are often long enough to wind several timea about the neck Hatpins too are causing considerable interest this year appearing in all manner of fantastic shapes and in rare colorings The same idea of harmony is adhered to with these quite as much as in the choice of a necklace Those pins with heads of amber are considered especially smart with black hats as well as those of everyfashionablehatpins of crystal or other persuasion Some very dainty heads of Dresden china are hand painted and tinted with the delicate colors fo wear with the white and flower hats Carrying out this idea of artistic adornment are the flowers of soft daintyfrocIcson as well as its softness and exquisite shadings give to the blossoms of ribbon a rare beauty which is seldom seen in those of silk or velvet Rare little bunches of violets or wild roses made of satin ribbon are frequently worn as bodice decoration instead of the real flowers and while they prove an excellent suggestion of the flowers themselves they have the added charm of not crushing and of being always fresh A lady of fashion recently sailing for Europe carried several beautiful little corsage boquets of this kind There has been a greater demand for fancy combs and hair ornaments this year than for sometime past Head dressing has reached its height during the past few years and coiffures were never more exquisitely arranged It- si small wonder then that the demand for combs has been so great Here the idea of suitability is still followed and while the comb must be that in best harmony with the costume the little bar or other shaped pin which holds the stray locks at the neck must match the comb These are In all prices One very striking and attractive comb seen recently

sudden mortality among the rats and mice verything PRAIRIE DOGS One of the of West and one of the rodents should be forth Wlth dispatched to Secretary Wilson He will be glad to get itOf course every one knows that the gopher problem is a serious one in many parts of the West and the rab bit pest has at times threatened to devastate Australia and even Cali fornia Altogether the small animals do a great amount of damage but most people do not realize what its aggregate really is Yet in one COUL ty of the state of Washington last yV year field mice destroyed at least 3 half a million dollars worth of prop erty while in the same time wolves In Wyoming alone mulcted the stock men of 1000000 worth of cattle While the damage from field mice and similar little varmints throughout the United States especially in the West and South amounted to many millionsTASK OF THE SCIENTISTS- To cope with these pests is4aI of the most interesting task of the biological survey of the Dci irtment of Agriculture It has hen working in a quiet way for several years and has about come to the collusion that al though it is poison and otherwise reduce the pests in many instances the thing that is really needed is a contagious disease that can be bottled up in the labor atory and distributed to do its own Work on an infinitely more effective scale than can traps and poisons That there is some such disease or that one can be produced the scien tists of the department do not doubt The trouble up to date has been to find it The biological survey is working in conjunction with the bureau of animal industry Some promising leads have been struck but none of them have turned out to be just what was wanted For instance while they are working with one dis ease now that is fatal to a certain breed of field mice it will not touch Others and the rats laugh at it in conscious immunity Also there are plenty of contagious animal diseases that could be turned loose on the rats ground squirrels and rabbits but as they would kill a horse just as quickly as they would a rat they are not wantedERNEST THOMPSON SETONS FIND Some years back the survey lost just the chance it has been looking for Ernest Thompson Seton was p In Canada where there was a pest of rabbits and noticed that they were rapidly dying out Some mysterious disease was carrying them off and it was not long before the country was almost cleared of them He realized that this disease might prove valuable and managed to catch some sick rab bits Which he shipped to a laboratory in New York but the problem was not just In the biologists line and he did not realize the immense importance of it so the secret was not grasped Now the biological survey is looking out for similar occurrences and if the opportunity offers will make the most Of is a field mouse disease that IB harmless to domestic animals and the survey is trying hard to make it virulent enough to do business with tome of the larger pests It promises Well but the scientists have had too many disappointments to be bragging In advance They are however act ually trying to reinforce the disease and make it worse than it has proved up to date This is getting pretty deep Into the network of germology and buItoxic science It means really breed disease germs on somewhat the same plan that plants and animals are now bred by the department But P there is a hope that they may be able to do something with it Anyhow they are trying there has been a number of reports from abroad of the wonderful things foreign bacteriologists have succeeded IB doing in the line of contagious dis eases for small animal pests but though cultures have been bought abroad and tried faithfully here no results have ever been obtained Some Sf the germs have proved fatal to the lltmals that ate them but the same Is true of anysort ol fiQlQn that can w TO BREED UP A DISEASE Efforts of the Government to Start a Plague Among Destructive Varmints GUY ELLIOTT MITCHELL Ibe bought by the pound and spread on bread The contagious quality has not developed yet in any of the foreign cultures tried THE RABBIT PEST The biological survey has been able to do a good deal in a practical way with the rabbit pest Some time ago the forest service set up a howl of in dignation It had planted some hun dred thousand young trees nursery stock In one of the California forest reserves and the rabbits ate them up in about a week Then it seeded several hundred acres with white pine to restore the land after a fire and the rabbits cheerfully set to work dug up all the seeds and ate them But Pests the the biologists were loaded for rabbit so to speak and they furnished the forest people with a harmless wash to soak their pine nuts in before plant ing and with a cheap dip for the nursery stock which a selfrespecting rabbit will no more nibble than will an ordinary human being smell auto mobile odor for a perfume In this the biologists confessedly took a leaf out of the book of the Piute and other desertdwelling In dians The Piutes have been caching food supplies of pine and pinion nuts in the desert for hundreds of years and they found that the rabbits the ground squirrels and prairie dogs wopld clean out their cache Bu- ttpy found by experience that there rns a little desert weed that the cAound animals disliked excessively lad that anything dipped in a tea steeped from the bark of the weed was rabbitproof for a long time thereafter So the rabbits were checkmated on that play and the forest officers have no more trouble froze that quarter PLAGUE OF TIlE WOLVES But it is the very presence of the forest reserves that has bred the present plague of timber wolves in the West Xo hunting is allowed in the reserves and they form nurseries for game of all sorts But it seems that they breed wolves quite as fast as they breed anything else of which fact the cattle raisers have been made painfully aware In the days of the buffalo on the plains thousands of wolves lived on the herds When the buffalo were killed off the wolves disappeared also till there was not one where there used to be a thousand Then the cattle men began to stock the ranges and the wolves found conditions much the same as in the buffalo days They promptly multiplied and increased till they are now doing an immense amount of damage aided largely by their asylum in the forest reserves The biological survey has sent out Mr Vernon Bailey one of its best men to study the wolf problem and he has been skeeing and snowshoeing through Wyoming and Montana while the snow was on the ground and the wolves were particularly easy to track and study He has not done any shooting but is trying the effects of poisons and traps But the wolves are about as cunning as foxes and after you

friendInCalifornia This car was shipped from Central Ohio and the fowls contained therein were very well selected from flocks of desirable varieties The owner of this car crossed the conti nent in care of his birds and settled in Central California Reports from there a few years later told a direful story of the impossibility of success in poultrygrowing in California manytroublesthat the amateur in poultry at that time imagined that the birds would live and prosper in the California cli mate without proper shelter within houses during the cold damp weather A close study of these conditions has entirely eliminated all these mis placeinenthusiasm equal to that found throughout California with reference to this industry The construction of proper houses the selecting of proper breeds and the proper caring for them has built up an enormous egg business through that section of the country- In the neighborhood of Petaluma keptforfor the California city markets than can be found within the same number of miles in any other place in the world One enthusiastic visitor to that locality has made the statement that every acre in the fifty thousand acres LeghornsThethe beauties of the scenery the pleas ure of fruit cultivation and the profit able growing of poultry have attracted hundreds to that section to em bark in these pursuits under pleasant conditionsA Brownlow who purchased a few acres of ground in that locality ten years ago has built up for himself with the assistance of his wife and children a most profitable combination of poultry fruit bees and squabs all of which thrive continually under the softer climates of that locality ena bling these people to produce broilers every month with a minimum amount of care and attention the fruit and bees being a remarkable source of profit during the greater part of yearPROTEOTIONAGAINST DAMP IMPORTANT The buildings used for poultry in these localities need not be so expen sive In construction as is necessary in that portion of the country visited feeding fowls and the facility with zero weather during the winter months from rain damp and vermin is the most necessary ad junct to a constructed poultry house when the not run at large and range over the land There is no month in the year in which they can not find more or less animal and vegetable life for food upon the range 12 months of food supply reduces the expense materially in I HI gUT OP DOOR AND FLOCK OP YOUNG WHITE LEGHORNS they they It or the many the the with which squab breeders their birds at large continually add vigor

Boston markets wll grade in vane with the averag markets of our larger Inland cities the expense of liying as to foot and other necessities is not so high as in the colder parts of the country as much of it is usually produced near at hand All of these things combine to make the regions of Southern California most to poultry growers who may be seeking a softer climate to lessen the aggravation which the rigors of winter heap upon some member of the family Many have gone there seeking a place merely to benefit their health and been much Improved by so doing but they have also been able to make a living for themselves and their families through the com bination above described ALL CANNOT SUCCEED All do not succeed This can not be in any following of life Those who do succeed usually have more or less experience in the business before they embark upon The failures come to the inexperienced and those who are unable to contend with the diffi culties always confronting one in the

are brought direct to the market and sold as such During and December last this quality of eggs sold in the mar kets of San Francisco as high as fifty one cents a dozen and as low as thirty cents influenced no doubt by the sip ply and demand governing this pro duct in every locality Eggs sold in Chicago during the year of 1905 as low as fifteen cents In San Francisco the lowest price quoted for the year was fourteen cents When the lesser expense of caring for them is the ad vantages or profit poultry grow ing should be fully equal to if not bet ter would be the same pursuit in Illinois

Hollinger I have aimed to carry enough cattle to use up the rough ness and the corn raised on the farm usually from 100 to 400 head Of late years I have paid more attention to cattle and alfalfa and have found that it was a far more reliable com bination than purely grain farming in which I was chiefly engaged in the earlier time of my experience There is no question but that any intelligent farmer can make a competency and support his family in abundant com fort in central Kansas I have done no more than any of my neighbors did or might have done Etch yerr the same income approximately can be se cured if the work is carefully planned and such crops are raised as areadapted to Kansas soil and Kansas climate As an example of Mr Hollingers stock raising it may be mentioned that he came to Kansas City recently with 9500 worth of stock which he sold off his farm He has lived on the same place for thirtythree years and is not leaving Kansas because he is entirely satisfied with his wealth but because he wants to give his family a broader education and to secure recreation for himself I think I have enough to keep me from want he said and I am entitled to get some thing more out of life than I have heretofore done- GREAT BEAR COUNTRY Representative Bede of Minnesota Tells the President About Big Game Hunting in Duluth How it happened that the war cor respondents at Washington found out about J Adam Bedes conference on bears with President Roosevelt does not appear However a full report of the Minnesota Congressmans tales has been made and was made public in the New York Evening Post It makes an alluring document Mr Bede who is the acknowledged wit of the House sought the President with the friendliest intention You like to shoot bears said Jadam diplo matically Mr Roosevelt admitted it But you dont have to go into the wild West for your sport went on the Minnesota statesman Think of this fact thirteen bears were shot in the streets of Duluth last yearin Du luth the pride of the Northwest that beautiful city on the great unsalted sea The statement had a perceptible effect on the President and Mr Bede was encouraged to go on Its the only place in the whole world Mr President where you can go bear hunting by trolley car under the elec tric light and on asphalt pavements We have all the conveniences so dear to the heart of the true sportsman and without leaving your hunting ground you can walk across the street to the mail box and drop in a postal card to your friends telling them all about the game you have bagged With the Congressman was a Duluth constituent a lady with firsthand knowledge of bear hunting in that city She added her corroborative statement Oh yes Mr President a short time ago a friend of mine heard a noise outside his window and on looking out saw that it was a bear try ing to climb a telegraph pole He shot that fellow without leaving his bed room Then to the joy of the Prealt dent Mr Bede took up the tale Why bears are common things with us up in Minnesota Mr President Last year five bears held up one of our trolley cars They were two old ones and three cubs This occured right in the streets of Duluth The big fellow got in front of the car and put his paws on the dashboard driving the motor man off while mamma and the cubs went around after the conductor After they had had enough of this sport they raised the siege and trotted off toward the outskirts of the city Oh no we dont let the bears trouble us much When they get too bothersome we turn them over to the police who drive them out of town but its a great bear country up there and Im sure you would like to see a bit of it Now if it is announced that President Roose velt means to take a vacation up In the Minnesota woods the correspond ents may go straight to Duluth whereas Mr Bede is a true prophet the great bear slayer may be found sitting in the door of an uptodate hotel a rifle across his knees waiting for the promised sport Permanently
