25is06 11 i IIYM1E 34 ri WALL ST NEW YORKORI THE TRACKS OF DADDYLESS TRACTS THROUGH WASHINGTON CO For quite a number of years Wall Street New York has been playing a very prominent part in the politics of this country Everybody knows that Wall Street New York lsthe money center of the United Statesthe rendezvous of trust magnates the home of marketmanipulators and stockjug glers where schemes to make this a government of the classesare hatched daily in the nestingsof a thousand harlots But Wall Street New York in the past has only exerted itself in Na tional arid State elections it was con tented to elect its Presidents Senators Congressmen Governors and Legislators by debauching thebdllot box by flooding the country with its millions of ill gotton money and by practicing the meanest sort of coercion but who ever dreamed that Wall Street New York would take a hand hi a local option election way down here in Washington county Kentucky But that is just what Wall Street New York is doing Absolutely trying to control Washington cpunty for the legalized liquor traffic And what do you think of Wall Street New York Dont you think it ought to be contented with electing Presidents Senators t Governors Congressmen and Legislators If the local option people had no otherzrgument to present to the vote r than the fact that Wall Street New York is interested jjnrlireeping the saloon m Washington cotihty it seems tq us that this within itself is sufficient rea 4on to convince him that local option is the best thing for the people for not since the days when Wall Street New York vas a mere hogpath through the wilderness has she eyer been known to champion a cause which would result in good to the masses of people Wall Street New York like a gigantic octo pUphas stood for the past century reaching out its great arms in every direction grasping everything in State snd Nation that it needed to further the interests of its ten generations o robbers Like mammoth hellhounds The emissaries of Wall Street New York backed by the goldgrabbers f the whole civilized world have heel bitten the people pf this country into pastures where the foods are scarce und where thewaters flow from polluted fountains And what do you think of Wall Street New Y rk in its effort control this county for whisky Hundreds ofabsurdwhisky tracts sonie of them absolutely sill have been mailed to the voters of this county by Wall Street New York trust hench man in an effort to convince the voter that whisky is the best thing for the countYeNot only have they been mailed to voters but a number of boy under eighteen years old have receive them Only last winter we saW Wall Street NewYork beat to death as it were with its poweifuloctqpUij arms the Burley Tobacco Growers Association Time after time the farmers of Washington county allied themselves with the farm era of other counties in art an effort perfect this organization but each two Wall Street New York with its polluted purse of purloined coin stripped in between them and their goal and said tones stentorianheard in the uttermost parts of this country You farmers shall not put a price upon your tobaccos wc are to tell you what y shall have for it Andwhatdoiouthink of Wall Street New York in its efforts to control an election down here in Washington county for whiskyI In the Wall Stree New York tracts the following subjects Are discussed History of Prohibition Jlrt America Prohibition and Stimulation1 Les opsonperism Church Temperance Duties and Folly of Prohibition All of this matter is unsigned and for that reason if for no other illegitimate Part of it is composed of extracts from speeches of preachers lawyers doctors states men etc And right here let us say that in the addresses of the most ardent local option advocates paragraphs can jo twisted into a whisky meaning when they are separated frOm the main body of the address For ex ample in a tract which we now have before us headed Folly of Prohibition What Eminent Men Say is quoted this language from Abraham Lincoln injurytospecies of intemperance within itself reasoninappetite by le illation and in making crimesAvery principles on which our govern beenfoundclasses from the stronger and I never asyouwillcontinueThis paragraph is quoted as an utter ance of the great Lincoln If thewhole truth were known via are absolutely certain it would be found that this utterance is a part of an address of Mr Lincolns against the sale of liquor in stead of an address for the sale of liquor for Abraham Lincoln devoted a good part of his life in trying to stamp out the sale of whisky How easy it would be to extort the original mean ing of the above paragraph To illus trots suppose Mr Lincoln in tothe argument of some one else used this paragraph in his own language but in reality the thought or express ion ofanother in order to show the absurdity of the paragraph All who know Mr Lincolns position upon this important matter are constrained to believe the above paragraph misrepre sents him Here is one of the many afThis leagalized liquor traffic as car grogshopsisThe saloon Has proved itself to be the greatest foe the most blighting curse that has ever found a in our mod em civilization and this is the reason I am a political prohibitionist Prohibi tion brings the desired result It suppresses the saloons by law By licensing the saloon we feed othert0While this state of things ontinues let us knOw that this war is all our own both sides of ituntil this guilty con withdrawnprohibition destroys destruction Now if this tract Folly of Prohibi tion contains one fabrication or mis representation what right have we to t believe that all of it is not a fake pure Sand simple Another tractis the History of Prohibition in America This pamph let is not worthy of notice by Washing ton county anti saloon people because we are not Prohibitionists in the true meaning ot the term wj are local op Ikmtala There is a broad difference gtrt of the State local option by a majority of the voters of a community or count State Prohibition may be the means of inclosing licensed saloons in a county where ninetenths of tIe voters want them ta exist and for tnat reason prohibition may not be a success in that county uBut local option gives the people in al local way the right to say whether or not they want whisky sold in their midst If a majority of the voters of any county are determined that jnto i cating liquors sh tlluot be sold in the communities then when it is voted out this same majority willsay it shan not be unlawfully sold Thats the difference between Prohibition and local tion The former extends into com inanities where it may not be wanted the latter centralizes itself only inI those places where it is desired here is the best way to find out whether or not local option is a success Go into any town in Kentucky where it has pre va led for three years or more and interview every business man in the town and then be governed by what they say they have had the experience and ex- pperience is a wise teacher In this same tract it is said that more whisky is consumed in Prohibition ternsa tory than in whisky territory But can you persuade yourself to believe this The very fact that Wall Street New York is making an effort to induce Washington county to keep its barrooms is convincing evidence of the untruthfulness of this statement If this were true you would not hear a word from the wholesale liquor dealers and the distillers when a local option election was called they would be local optionists Anof us who read the proceedings of the Wholesale Liquor Dealers Association which recently met in Louisville remember that many of the speakers spoke very alarmingly of she future of their business and predicted disaster unless something was done to check the tide of sentiment against the barroom Therefore it will riti01 of the above direct from whisky men themselves Another tractis Prosperity In this tract Wall Street New York undertakes to prove to the people of bre more prosperous with the saloons that our bank accounts will be larger etc But let us invite your attention to the statements from the cashiers of the banks of Hodgenville and Campbells iville recently printed in the Sun This unsigned tract gives illustrations from Vermont Maine North Dakota Kansas etc These States are too far way the railroad fare would be a little too much agoinancomin for any of us to make a personal investigation Campbellsville is just a stones throw away the trip can be made there and back in a day gild there is no reason why an investigation should not b made Here is a proposition from The Sun We uiir pay the expenses of any whisky advocate to andf m Campbells ville if he vfill go to that cityand pro cure state ents along this line from Mr J N T arner Asst Cashier Bank Davies Cashier Farmers eposit Bank bring them back home read them to his friends and then nave them printed in The Sun Dont you think we could settle this question of Prosperity qucker in that way than by going o to Maine or Kansas or Vermont THe trip would be too hardand we might ge sea sick Another tract is Lesson of Ver m nt1IThis is a little sixt enp ge affair giving a complete history of Vermont Prohibition for the past fifty years This tract is also dad dylcss but hails from Wall Street New York It covers a multitude of things from the trial court tothe pen j itentiary it tells about the collapses of banks and the destruction ot institutions tells how theblind tiger flourish ed and how people were downtrodden how immorality increased and how all the world surrounding Vermont was powerless to help This tract pre rents a very sickening state of affairs in this pamphlet are extrnctsucx tracts mind you from preachers law riyersv doctors and politicians together with some paragraphs sPargraphs mind you from a dozen or so newspapers In Order to ease Mr Nathan M Uri of Louisville the gentle man who wanted to go into executive session before he delivered his now famous spiel before the National Whisky Dealers Association we will say that the Vergennes Enterprise claims that more whisky was sold under prohibition in Vermont than under the li cense system It will be remembered that Mr Uri was very apprehensive lest Kentucky go dry and thereby ruin the liquor business in the State But Mr Url will doubtless be pleased to hear that the Vergennes Enterprise ys business will be better Mr Uri may now dismiss the idea of finding the man and then going into the maj1 ket and buyingthe votes to elect him in order to get legislation favorable to the whisky people for the whisky pepit pie dont need legislation because jif what this daddyless tract says is true msiness will be better under prohi bitio However it might not be so good undo localoption and if Mr Uri thinks best lie might look around for his man Another tract is Prohibition and stimulation The intention of this tract is to prove that if you vote whisky out people will resort to the opiummorphinedoverpqwdersparago riclaudanumc o c a i n ec o r a 1Ihdian hemp habit Thats the way Wall Street New York sizes it up But lets to go to Wall Street New Yor for our information Suppose you write to a number of local option towns in Kentucky and ask the people there whether or not since whisky went out these stimulants are more frequently used It seems to us that that would be the more sensIble way of getting to the bottom of the question This tract like all of the Other tracts is unsigned but the writer seeing the absurdity of the thing added in concluding sthe spiel Habits of this kind are carefully concealed as a rule and it is difficult to ascertain with accuracy their true extent Only the most pronounced cases become known to the community while the insidious evil is secretly sap p ng the vitality of many The author ol this rot knew that investigation would rootwad everything he had said pon the subject so he added the above investigaetin Investigation is mighty powerful when we want to accumulate facts Dr Mentz a great German physician says Tea is a weak stimulant it bouys only for a brief period then wines and alcohol and other stimulants of like nature are resorted to and these too often become too weak then morphine cocaine and opium must be used to give quiet to the excited nerves REMOVE THE WEAKER STIMU LANTS AND THERE NEEA BE NO STIRuti ULANTS Another tract is Pauperism This tract is also unsigned Its a daddy leas tract nit Wall Street New York endeavors to prove to the people of Washington county that whisky enriches and prohibition empover ishes We have never seen prohibi tfbn tried but we have seen local o teen tried and it works most beautifully in building up homes in clothing ragged children in making men out of ebriates and in placing in the pockets of runkarcs bun redsof dollars which formerly went into the coffers of thesa loonist Local option enriches itdoeSn t pauperize The business people of every local option town in Kentucky will testify tothis fact We dont know anything about what prohibition does for the people lust at this time we are local optioniats we have seen it tried and this daddyless tract from Wall Street New York appears ridiculous to us Now dear reader candidly can you recall a single instance in which whts y ever enriched any man except the man who sold it Did you you ever hear of anybody getting rich by drinking it The object of this daddyless tract from wan Street peoIteItract is about the silliest bit of rot in ttye whole lot of rot Look around you dear reader and see how many of your neighbors have been made rich by drinking whisky Then look around you and seej how many Kipg Alcohol haft sinGove fished Thats the way to get to the bottom of this matter Thats the way to prove to your mind that thes daddyless itract from Wall Street New York on Pauperism fails iq s fandeavor so for as this section is concerned Another tractand this one is the most interesting tract of allis Church Temperance Duties In this pamphlet a long list of preachers tell you that the barroom is a good thing for the community the first spiel being an address by Bishop Potter It thatIBishop Potter originated the idea and carried into practice the church saloon which soon became the most notoriously infamous hellhole in all New York It grew to be so tough that the police of the great wicked kcity of New York were compelled to raid it and close its doors within a very brief period jafteif it was Opened It became the rendevous oS the citys meanest criminal the home of indev cent women arid the abode of all of those elements which inject into the very Atmosphere a poison pollution and placed within reach of every boy and every girl in New York and eVery S- It r to the city that thing which re duces good society to indecency This is just a brief story of Bishop Potter church saloon It would require a volume Jo tell the whole story for within the walls of that place every crime in the calender of crimes was committed As to Bishop Potters sincerety and honesty in establishing this church saloon we withhold an expression He may have honestly believed that he could conduct a salon as a Sunday school should bef conducted but the events which so quickly trans pired proved very conclusively that Bishop Potters bright dream of aI sacred barroom soon became a sic ening nightmare Everybody remem bers that this barroom was opened with prayer and song service but the last appeal item the lips of the preacher and the beautiful strainsof the song were hardly finished ere the maggot of debauchery began to worm its way through Bishop Potters church sa loon Now dear reader what more need to be said about this daddyless tract from Wall Street New York upon the subject of Church Temper ance Duties Isnt the sickening story of Bishop Potters church aaj loon enough to convince you that this daddyless tract from Wall Street New York is as nothing in this argu aPnd the whisky people But allow us to quote from an article in this tract headed The Folly and Mischief of Prohibition purporting to be a Lett from one Bishop Hallto the Burlington Free Press The paragraph we would Call your attention to is as follows Once more our existing rohibito mISchievousbecause eountryfolkpeople in our larger villages and cities They enact a law whether wise cannotbeProbably Bishop Hall had reference to State Prohibition and not to local option If he refers in the above pa graph to local option let us say to you that Bishop Hall by this utterance ptoves that he is thoroughly selfish for does he not intimate thatour country folk have no right to vote in an elec tipn the purpose of which is to rGineve a jsnare from the very way of their children all because Pro happen toy lire in the country riot in town The farmer is the maker of the towiv the builder of the nation upon his shoulder rests the welfare of the multi aides and we claipitha he above alt otter has a right to participate fn every movement which may tend to m ulcj his countrys destinies arid God pity the country that would take from hint hid right of suffrage for der redder you know that the purity and perpetuity of this government depend upon the free ballotin the hand of th Ahierican farmer Eliminate this fa tort from our politicial life and in less than fortyeight hours after the daq tardly work had been accomplished the shadows of a dark age would begth to gather and a tyrrany more horrify ing than anything that could be con t ceiyed in theminds of the imps of hell would hold sway over an hundred mile ion3 of free born American citizen Oh Wall Street New Yorkrom whence came these dadd less tracts i never again allow your preacher friends to fintimate that the Amencanfarmerhas no right to participate in the elections of our country But to cap the climax of this daddy less tract from Wall Street New York I e quote the fol lawing from ReV Cla k bf Rhode Is andCiTODRINK IS 1IO SIN JESUS CHRIST ANKt TO KEEP A SALOON IS NO SIN f UPon these words we

the public schools had a strange dream a year ago in which he was forewarned of the precise time of his death In his dream as Mr Allen related it later he saw a map representing a review of 50 years or all but one year of his life The map was divided Into five sections each section representing a decade of his life all the principal events and many of the in cidents of which were clearly revealed to him He examined the map sec tion by section smiling here over some bit of comedy in his life weeping there over some bit of tragedy and living over again the years that were gone When he was done with the fifth section of the map he laid it aside and reached for a sixth But found no sixth Again picking up the fifth section he discovered in bright red letters in a corner thereof a command to turn it over and read what was written on the reverse side He did so and there round a map representing a clear view of the last or fiftyfirst year of his life and a forecast of the next or fiftysecond year The forecast told ihim that a sickness would befall him at the end of his fiftysecond year and besought him to be careful of his health lest the sickness should end his life and then a Voice whispered in his ear telling him that he would fall ill P on his flftysecobd birthday and that if he did not die then he would live to be 80 or 90 years of age Mr Allen was amused rather than depressed by the dream and treated it lightly when he related it to his family Mr Allen on his fiftysecond birth day arose apparently In excellent islealth Do you know he said to his wif at the

determine for herself the flash point of the kerosene she buys Unfortunately the handling of kerosene which Is hot dnough to flash is a highly dangerous thing for one who Is not instructed in the matter There are some things however which a housekeeper may do says Professor WP Bradley In Good Housekeeping First Kerosene should always bo handled by daylight and away from all flames and fires Under no circumstances whatever should a lamp be filled while its wick is lighte- dSccondAfter filling a lamp both the burner and the reservoir should always be carefully wiped free from oil films Third When a lamp Is not burning It Is well to keep the wick a little be helpstothe burner and reservoir Fourth Fill your lamps as often as theyare used Especially do not light a lamp when the oil is low in the reservoir FlfthtRememberlng that even ex plosive vapor cannot do harm unless in some way it actually comes in con tact with a flame never use a burner which fits loosely upon the rest of the lamp A loose Joint may leak vapor which Is likely In turn to be drawn up intothe flame Sixth Never use a wick which d not fit the tube provided for it Seventh NeVer blow out a kerosene flame downward Turn down the wick ItIscltward through the burner or across the top of the chimney Both of these methods produce an upward draft Eighth Always keep the kerosene can and filler In a than well

follows viz There has been some confusion of opinion among the people as to the ef certainwhile the county as a whole votes the other way The law plainly provides votedrystanding some of them may have voted wet But on the other hand if the county should go wet and certain pre cincts at the same time go dry those onlytheThe county carries all the precincts with it only in case it goes dry if the county goes wet each precinct will be as it votes This law applies to Nelson county in cluding Bardstown and a vote will be calledfor September 1 The above construction or misconstruction or statement concerning the County Unit Bill is not correct and ig misleading The law provides that When an election is held in an entire county anda majority of the legal votes cast at such an election ar against the sale barter or loan n spirituous vinous malt or other intox lawer or arty liquors in anyportion of the c untyr In other words the whole county is dry But the law does not prjovide as stated in the article o But on the other hand if the county should go wet and certain precincts at the same time go dry those precincts are to remai dry and only precincts voting wet are to be wet Thia last statement from the article quoted has no foundation in law whatever The law clearly provides that if a majority of the legal votes in such an election held in the entire coun ty are opposed to local option that each precinct shall then remain as it was be fore the election or in other words every precinct will be as though there had beenno election Should the whole county go wet and yet four ors five or any number of precincts therein go dry local option will derive no benefit from those precincts going dry and the Will remain as they were before the election MORGAN YEWELL SYCAMORE VALLEY Mrs

Gabriel Baldos reported that the Duke of Jfatz and a dozen of the most distinguished men in Dawsbergen were on their way to Edelweiss to complete arrangements for peace and to lay their renunciation of Gabriel before Dantan in a neutral court The people of Dawsbergen had been clamoring ng for Dantans restoration and Baldos was commissioned to say that his return would be the signal for great

position haye riot proved sufficient to blind her to conditions which surround less fortunate men and women She Is the Countess of Warwick long the reIgn ing beauty of King iuwards court and one of the most famous women in two continents The Countess has recently come in to prominence through her paripa tlon in the English elections and is a strong advocate and supporter of Will Thome candidate of the dock la borers for a seat in the House of Commons The Countess strongly sup ports the contention of the laboring element for a labor party in parliament and gowned In the most bewitching of Parisian frocks and in a red automobile she has been stirring things up pretty lively in the fortyfive parliamentary districts in which repre sentatives of organized labor were running for the House of Commons SENT DELEGATION TO AaiERIOAJ This very democratic Countess recently sent a delegation of twentyflv women to the United States to study labor conditions here Each as In trusted with a different mission One visited stenographers and typewriters another went to tailor shops and stll another to the factories where young men antt women are employed and th entire labor field was adequately coy ered The Countess defrayed all expenses of the trip and is now win the material which her delegatioi brought back to her for speeches to the laboring classes Not long ago the Countess addressed a tremendous crowd of workmen Her stage was a tradesmans wagon and hundreds of workmen went without their dinners In order to hear her- r speech She was given a great ovation called the men comrades and JTHE COUNTESS OF WARWICK friends and urged them to strain every effort to get a labor party In parliamentYou are the empire d clared the Countess and this with succession of spirited assertions she made were lustily cheered by the la boring men The Countess of Warwick Is one of Englands most famous women Before the succession of her husband to the earldom she was Lady Brooke and gained the nickname of Babbling Brooke for having told some V ngs In connection with the famous bac carat party at Tranby Croft which proved one of the most sensational news stories of the year The Prince of Wales now King Edward vII was a member of the party and a subs quent witness In the case TO TEACH DAIRYING AND CHICKEN GROWTH In the past few years the Countess of Warwick has devoted nearly

notion is not altogether new for violets have been made Into confections for t palate as well as Into boquets for the olfactory organs At any rate It seems that the fash Ion bas acquired a new Impetus of late and a candled violet is coming to be rnwCkfl U ao acceptable bonne bouche to be presented to a llady There Is also it Is said a demand for sugared rose petals which is being catered to by some enterprising artists In sugar It can hardly be pretended that flowers made into sweets are of any medicinal cfflcacy though damask rose leaves have long held a recog nized place in the materia medica Whether the violet has any thera appearthoughhave just now some reputation out side the medical faculty fcs a cure for cancer The best Shut can be hoped for if flowers are be eaten as well as to be seen and snfelled is that they may in all cases prove to be Innocuous It Is a nice question whether the perfume is always a safe guidePerhnpsthe modern craze Is after all only a form of luxury A candied violet or a dish of rose leaves cun ningly prepared for the tea table could not possibly enter Into the category of cheap sweets for the millions and it is understood that the sugar trust is not interested BREAKS BY CONGRESS Peculiar Mistakes Due to Tremendous Amount of Work Transacted Just Before Adjournment In the hurry and bustle of getaway day in Congress a few errors slipped in to upset the calculations of party leaders One of these was the signing of the agricultural appropriation bill by the President before that measure contained the signature of the Speaker of the House of Representa tives Of course this oversight was corrected but the question then arose as to the Importance of having the bill signed by the Speaker and the Vice President Their signatures merely certify that the bill has passed their respective houses the important fact being that they have been passed by the House and Senate For this rea son it Is not regarded as being absolutely Indispensable that a bill should be signed b the presiding officer of the House ill that is necessary is to establish thfact that it has keen so passed t Anothcrrea was the presiden tlal approval of the sundry civil bill containing an item appropriating 3000000 fora site for a new departmental building In Washington This item had been dropped out of the bill in conference but the enrollment clerks failed to notice the omission and so included this item in the copy of the bill laid before the President for his signature When the error was discovered a resolution was adopted by both houses of Congress repealing the feature of the bill making the 3000000 appropriation It is not strange that these mis takes occur as all of the employes of both the Senate and House during the last few days of Congress have an enormous amount of work shoved upon them so that when Congress actually adjourns many of them are ready to take to their beds for several days in order to recuperate CANADIAN RECIPROCITY Northern Sister Would Like Such Arrangement But is Waiting Move by This Country A letter from Ottawa Canada states that the question of reciprocity Between Canada and the Unite States is by no means dean as was clearly shown by the recent debate on the Canadian budget In a number of speeches which while they admitted that the United States did not appear to care for reciprocity it would if it could be brought about on mutually advantageous terms oe a good thing for both sides of the line Many of the crown ministers and even Sir Wil hid Laurier himself the premier and described In England as the foremost statesman in the British Empire are favorable to CanadianAmerican re ciprocity if It can be had Sir tradeethereacould be no British policy than to do everything possible to encourage good relations with the United States Senator Lougheed the conservative e leader in the Senate stated that he thought no higher work could be found by King Edward than to promote the good relations of the two peoples ands bind more closely together the two AngloSaxon nations He know no happier way of strengthening the bond between the AngloSaxon peoples on the North American Continent than for the King and Queen to visit the preseent time If reciprocity irnot visibly to the front today It because public opinion In Canada reg rds reciprocity as unattainable and the position of the antireciprocity men who are for the moment supreme as unassailable Hence and for no other reason re ciprocity sentiment Is put on the shelf until called for again and an ostenta tlouo appearance of indifference Is manifested in Canada which will be stiffly maintained as long as the United States government makes no forward movement that public opinion in the Dominion can as sincere and bas a spirit of Reasonableness and fair play To thos who are able to read be tween the Jines the announcement of the finance minister that the changes to be made In tho Canadian tariff when revision takes pn a next session must depend upon such hew conditions obviouslyhewho stand in the way of reciprocity and those in London who have blocked a mutual preference between the mother counts and Canada It is a warning and may mean much or little as circumstances or conditions dictate A GROCERY IN CONGRESS REPRESNTATIYE MANN PLAYS SALESMAN AND DRUGGIST TO UNMASK FRAUDS Short Weight and Fraudulent Foods the Lure of Many Department Stores and Mail Order Houses Honest Dealers Handicapped Deceptions When the pure food bill was before the House of Representatives a few weeks ago intense interest was dis played by the members of that body in a grocery store established by Representative Mann of Illinois Mr Mann had been given a special privi lege by the House committee having the bill in Charge to demonstrate the manner in which the ordinary food wREPRESENTATIVE MANN products of the country are adulter ated and how the consumer is de frauded The space in front of the speakers desk resembled a small section of a delicatessen store and a corner grocery with cereals jams jellies tins of peas tomatoes corn prepared spices bottles of whiskey and wine imported sausages brandied cherriessand other edibles and drink s red over two tables Representative Mann proceeded to demonstrate to the House through these various food products the necessity for a national pure food law One of the first articles taken up by the Congressman was the ordinary condiment pepper which to the lay mind is considered too cheap for any manufacturer to spend time in adul aerating He read circulars from nu merous concerns offering for sale a certain grade of adulterant which could be used to produce pepper or almost any other of the spices with some slight modification As he scat tered a package of this over his desk the members In the vicinity started back in order to avoid the usual sneez ing which follows the inhalation of a small quantity of pepper But they were reassured by the groceryman that it was not harmful for while it was called pepper it was nothing but ground olive pits Hfc convulsed the House when he read the price list of adulterants showing that they were offered to the trade for 20 a ton In fiveton lots and that at that rate they were guaranteed to makerthe black pepper which as everyone knows is sold by the ounce He made the statement that even the pepper berry itself was adulterated Ijy a cleverly contrived manufacture ot tap loco colored with lamp black Possibly the most striking demonstration of the afternoon with a bottle of red cherries these Cher ries if was explained were picked green and that after bleached out white by the use of u powerful acid had been colored tie brilliant red by the use of coal ar dyead- eadly poison if used in large quanti ties Representative Man dipped a piece of white cloth in the juice of these cherries and it partook of a brilliant red as though it hail just come from a dyers Olive oil explained Mr Mann Is a product which Is in most ases adul terated In many Instance the coun terfeit is merely American cotton see- doila wholesome and satisfactory dressing for salad but it osts about y4 as much as real olive oil and the American buyer certainly does not care to purchase a dressin for four times Its actual worth- IIIVELESS HONE L- One of the freak cxibits was n bottle of honey which in order to complete the assurance of the buyer that the article was genuine contained as if by accident the body of a real bee yet the whole mess was pure and simple glucose and had never been near a hive much less a cbmb The hive probably was a ten story fac tory In one of the large clt es A bottle of Freezine wa exhibited by Mr Maun who explain that this remarkable article was guaranteed to preserve meat from the act

coal tar dye and con d not be Used safely upon human fool The public Is unwittingly rtcfrauded to a great extent through shbrt weight and short measure In package goods explained Mr Mann and hp insisted that the manufacturers shou d be core quantityIn line wl h this was n dramatic demonstration when the Chicago pure food expert held up before the House a r s bottle supposed to contain a quart of vinegar which when poured into a large graduate did not nearly reach the quart mark thereonIn fact was three inches below it Raisins currants and numerous other articles of food are apparently put up in pound packages and so the buyer considers but in fact few of those on the market really contain a full pound- DEPARTMENT STORE BARGAINS kindmailstrator which make profit from

proportion Everybody knew as Mr Mann stated that 25 per cent of all the coffee used in the United States is sold as a mixture of Java and Mocha He was prepared to show from ofllcial figures that while we used last year more that a billion pounds of coffee and while about 250000000 pounds were supposed to be Mocha and Java there were actually imported Into this country last year only a fraction ove 2000000 pounds of Mocha and 10000 000 pounds of Java or approximately less than 13000000 pounds or only 5 per cent of the popular blend It is staggering to know 95 per cent of the people who think they drink Mocha and Java every day have been ceived and yet the facts seem to b rather plain Figures like these however nl though ordinarily impressive and con vlnclng did not attract so much at to

pessoners creyers and other small craft were rolling lazily on the gentle swell Further out still lay- a great merchant ship highefded deep waisted punted of a canary yellow and towering 4bove the fishing boats like swan among ducklings By St Paul said the knight our good merchant of Southhampton hath not played ns false for methinks I can see our down yonder He said that she would be of great size and of a yellow gladeSlBy my hilt yes muttered Aylward ulhe is yellow as a kites claw and would carry as many men as there are pips in a pomegranatje 4IXtisweliremarked TerlnkeUfor methinks my

tag Ms eyes with his hand And I cane Menatarms in yonder boats which ply betwixt the vessel and the shore But methinks that we are very welcome here for already they come forth to meet usA tumultuous crowd of fishermen citi seng and women had indeed swarmed out from the northern gate approached them up the side of the moor waving thelr hands and dancing with Joy as though a great fear had been rolled back from their minds At their head rode very large and solemn man with a long chin and drooping lip He wore a fur goldchaindangled in frontof him Welcome most puissant and noble lord he cried doffing his bonnet You see in me the mayor and chief magistrate of the ancient and powerful town of Lepe I bid you very heartily welcome and the more so as yop are come at a moment when we are sore put to it for defence Ha I cried Sir Nigel pricking up his earsYes my lord for the town being very ancient and the walls as old as the town it follows that they are very ancient too But there is a certain villlanous and blood thirsty Norman pirate knight Tetenoire who with a Genoan called Tito Caracci commonly known as Spadebeard hath been a mighty scourge upon these coasts Indeed my lord they are very cruel and blackhearted men graceless and ruthless They have come in two great galleys with two banks of oars on either side and great store of engines of war and of menatarms At Weymouth and at Portland they have murdered and ravished Yesterday morning they were at Cowes and we saw the smoke from the burning crofts Today they lie at their ease near Freshwater and we fear much lest they come upon us and do us a mis chiefIWe cannot tarry said Sir Nigel riding toward the town with the mayor upon his left side the Prince awaits us at Bordeaux and we may not be behind- the general muster Yet I will promise you that on our way we shall find timeto pass Freshwater and to prevail upon these rovers to leave you in peace We are much beholdenI to you cued the mayor cannot see my lord how without a warship you may venture against these men With your archers however you might well hold ther tOWs and do them great scath if they attempt to land There is a very proper cog out yonder said Sir Nigel it would be a very strange thing if any ship were not a war ship when it had such men as these upon her decks Certes we shall do as I any aad that no later than this very day iMy lord said a roughhaired dark faced man who walked by the knights ether stirrup with his head sloped to catch all that he was saying by your leave I have no doubt that you are skilled in land fighting and the marshalling of lances but by my soul you will find it another thing upon the sea I am master kipman of this yellow cog and my name is Goodwin Hawtayne I have sailed since I was as htgas this staff and I have fought againsthese Normans and against the Geno4e9as well as the Scotch the and the Moors I tell Iron sir that my whip IS overlight and overfrail for such work and it will but end in our having our throats cut or being sold as slaves to tile Barbary heathen 1I also have experienced one or two gentle and honorable ventures upon the ea quoth Sir Nigel and I am right blithe to have so fair a task before us I think good mastershipman that you and I may win great honor in this matter and 1 can see very readily that you arc a brave and stout man III like It not said the other sturdily In Gods name I like it not And yet Goodwin Hawtayne is not the man to stand back when his fellows are for pressIng forward By my soul be it- sink or swim 1 shall turn her beak into Freshwater Bay and IL good Master Witherton of Southampton like not my handling of his ship then he may find another master The throng tooved on until at the very cate It was brought to a stand by a Iwondrously stout man who came darting forth from th town with rage in every feature of his rubicund face How now Sir Mayor he roared in a vojce like a bull How now Sir May r How of the clams and the scallops By our Lady my sweet Sir Oliver cried the mayor I have had so much to think of with these wicked villians so close upon us that it had quite gone out of my head Nay Sir Oliver Sir Oliver cried Sir Nigel laughing Let your anger be appeased since instead of this dish you come upon an old friend and comrade By St Martin of Tours 17 shouted the rat knight his wrath all changed in an instant to joy if it is not my dear little c same rooster of the Garonne Ah my iweet coz I am right glad to see you What days we have seen together The clams and scallops shall be ready within the hour the mayor answered I had asked Sir Oliver Buttesthorn to do my humble board the honor to partake at it of the dainty upon which we take some little pride but in sooth this alarm of pirates hath cast such a shadow on my wits that I am like one distrait But I trust Sir Nigel that you will tso partake of nonemeat with me3 I have overmuch to do Sir Nigel answered for we must be aboard horse and man as early as we may How aany do you muster Sir Oliver I shall have work for man of them ere the sun set It Is my intention if it seems good to you to trya venture against these Norman and Genoese rovers t CHAPTER XII Leaving the lusty knight and the Mayor of Lepe Sir Nigel led the Company Btraiffht down to the waters cdee where r iMffMnM of flat lighters swiftly bore tato their vessel Horse after horse was lung by main force up from the bargee after kicking and plunging la ply air was dropped Into the deep wail t of the yellow cog where rows of afrjii ttood ready for their safe keeping t Englishmen in those days were skilled and prompt in such matters for it was not long before that Edward had embarked as many as fifty thousand men in the port of Orwell with their horses and their baggage all in the space of fourand twenty hours So urgent was Sir Nigel on the shore andso prompt was Goodwin Hawtayne on thecog that Sir Oliver Buttesthorn had scarce swallowed his last scallop ere the peal of trumpet and clang of nakcr announced that all was ready and the anchor drawn In the last boat which left the shore the two com manders sat together in the sheets a strange contrast to one another while under the feet of the rowers was a litter of huge stones which Sir Nigel had ordered to be carried to the cog These once aboard the ship set her broad sail the breeze blew the sails bellied over heeled the portly vessel and away she plunged through the smooth blue rollers By St Paul isaid Sir Nigel gayly as he stood upon the poop and looked on either side of him it is a land which is very well worth fighting for nd it wore pity to go to France for what may be had at home You may bring my harness from below he continued to his squires and also I pray you bring up Sir Olivers and we shall don it here Ye may then see to your own gear for this day you will I hope make a very honorable en trance into the field of chivalry arid prove yourselves to be very worthy and valiant sguires And now Sir Oliver as to our dispositions would it please you that I youYou By Our Lady I am no chicken but I cannot claim to know as much of war as the squire of Sir Walter Manny Settle the likingYou upon the poopForforty men with twoscore archers Two score men with my own menatarms and squires will serve as a poopguard Ten archers with thirty shipmen under the master may hold the waist whil ten lie aloft with stones and arbalests Meanwhile there had been bustle and preparation in all parts of the great ves allouttfldeckstesting that they were firm at the nocks Among them moved Aylward and other of the

Southampton mariners hairy and burly men with their jerkins thrown off their waists braced tight swords mallets and poleaxes in their hands Their leader Goodwin Hawtayne stood upon the poop and with Sir Nigel casting his eye up sometimes at the swelling sail and then glancing back at the two seamen who held the tiller Pass the word said Sir Nigel that no man shallstand to arms or draw his bowstring until my trumpeter shall sound It would be well that we should sou1hampton linbreshwaterbeen at their devils work See how their shallops pull from the land They hnve seen us and called their men aboard Now they draw upon the anchor See them like ants upon the forecastle They stoop and heave like handy ship mien But my fair lord these are no I doubt but we have taken in hand more than we can do Each of these ships is a galeas and of the makeTleyes said Sir galleysTheytrust that we shall have much pleasuncc fr m our meeting with them It would bo well to pass the word that we should neither give or take quarter this day1 The yellow cog had now shot out from the narrow waters of the Solent and was plunging and rolling on the long heave of the open channel The wind blew freshly from the east with a very keen edge to it and the great sail roundly out laying the vessel over until the water hissed beneath her lee bul warks DroadLi ungainly she floundered from wave to wave dipping her round bows deep into the blue rollers and sending the white flakes of foam in a spatter over her decks On her lir board quarter lay the two dark galleys which had already hoisted sail and were shooting out from Freshwater Bay in swift pursuit their double line of oars giving them a vantage which could not fail to bring them up with any vessel trusted to sails alone Irish and bluff the English cog lon black and swift the pirate galleys like two fierce lean wolves which have seen a Jordly and unsuspecting stag walk past lair Shall we turn my fair low or shrill mastqrshipmau100kln Nay

the rope which would re lease the catch and send the un wieldly missile hurtling through the air So for an instant they stood showing hard and clear against the white sail behind them The next redcap had fallen across the stone with an arrow between his ribs and the other struck in the leg and in the throat was writhing and spluttering upon the ground As he toppled backward he had loosed the spring and the huge beam of wood swinging round with tremendous force cast the corpse of his cdmrade so close to the English slip that its mangled and distorted limbs grazed her very stern As to the stone it glanced off obliquely and fell midway between the vessels A roar of cheering and of laughter broke from the rough archers and seamen at the sight answered HORDLE JOHN FORCED THE HUGE ARM SLOWLY BACKI talked bellied which they before Doge by pursuersLiewith his left hand They will learn wisdom They are bringing forward shield and mantlet We shall pave some pebbles about our ears ere long The three vessels had been sweeping swiftly westward the cog still well to the front although thQ galleys were drawing in upon either quarter To the left was a hard skyline unbroken by a sail Alleyne stood by the tiller looking backwards the fresh wind full in his teeth What was that he asked as a hiss whisperinpointed with his foot to where a short crossbow quarrel stuck quivering in the boards At the same instant the man tumbled forward upon his knees and lay lifeless upon the deck the blood stained feather of a second bolt jutting out from his back AS Alleyne stooped to raise him the air seemed to be alive with the sharp zipzip of the bolts and lie could bear them puttering on the deck like apples at a treeshaking Keep them in play Aylward with ten of your men said Sir Nigel And let ten of Sir Olivers bowmen do ns much for tub Genoese I have no mind as yet to show thorn how much they have to fear from us The ninstershlpmnn looked at the knight with n troubled taco They keep their distance from us said he Our archery is overgood anti they will not close I think I may trick them the knight answered cheerfully nnd passed his order to the archers Instantly five of them threw up their hands and fell prostrate upon the deckaThey still hold aloof cried Haw tayne Then down with two more shouted their leader That will do Ma foil hut they come to our lure like chicks to the fowler To your arms men As he spoke a roar of voices and a roll of drums came from cither galley and the water was lashed into spray by the hurried beat of a hundred oars Down the pirates swooped thlforwhite faces brown faces yellow ami swarthyItnlinnsnnd fiery Moors from tin Barbary States ofu11 hues and and marked olely by the common stamp of a wild beast ferocity Rasping up on either with oars trailing to save them from snnnplne thov r oure l ina living torrent uponthlBut wilder yet was the cry and shriller still the scream when there rose up from the shadow of tho cogs silent bulwarks the long lines of the English bowmen nnd the arrows whizzed in a deadly sleet nmong tin unprepared masses upon the pirate decks One moment Alleyne saw the galleys poop crowed with rushing figures waving arms exultant faces the next it was a bloodsmeared shambles with Qthertheshelter themselves from that sudden stormblast of death On either side the seamen whom Sir Nigel had chosen for the purpose had cast their anchors over galleys1oVe had cleared the galleys decks but from either side the rovers had poured down into the waist where the seamen and bowmen were pushed back and so mingled with their toes that it was impossible for their comrades above to draw string to help them It was a wild chaos where axe and EnglishmenNorman on a deck which was cumbered with bodies and slippery

his foot slipping in a pool of blood he fell heavily to the deck Alleyne sprang in front of the Norman but his sword was shattered and he himself beaten to the deck by a weaponEre uponhiSwas in the hands of a stronger man than himself Then came in truth a battte of giants such as is seldom witnessed disengagehisbeing thwarted by such an unlo for antagonist But Hordle John with a bulls bellow

in his grasp and the fingersInother hand Back a id back still the Saxon bent him until tvith aroar of pain and of fury the clanged his full length upon the boards while the glimmer of a knife before the bars of his helmet warned him that short would be his shrift if he moved Cowed and disheartened by the loss of their leader the Normans had given back and were now streaming over the bul warks on to their own galley dropping a dozen at a time on to herdeck But the fight had taken a new and a strange turn upon the other side Spade beard and his men had given slowly back bard pressed by Sir Nigel Aylward Black Simon and the poopguard Foot by foot the Italian had retreated his arjnor running blood at every joint his shield split crest shorn his voice fallen away to a mere gasping and croak ing Yet he faced his foemen with daunt less courage dashing in springing back surefooted steadyhanded with a shimmering point which seemed to menace three at once Beaten back on to the dock of his own vessel and closely fol lowed by a dozen Englishmen he disengaged himself from them ran swiftly down the deck sprang back into the cog once more cut the rope which held the anchor and was back in an instant among his crossbowmen At the same time the Genoese sailors thrust with their oars against the side of the cog and a rapidly widening rift appeared between the two St Georgel cried Ford we are cut off from Sir Nigel He as lost gasped Terlake Come let us spring fort it The two youths jumped with all their strength to reach the departing galley Fords feet reached the edge of the bulwarks and his band clutching a rope he swung himself on board Terlake Tell short crashed in among the oars and bounded off into tho sea Alleyue staggering to the side was about to hurl himself after him but Hordle Johns heavy band dragged him back by the girdle The vessels were indeed so far apart now that the Genbese could use the full sween of their oars and draw away rapidly from the cog Wok Look but it is a noble fight shouted big John clapping his hands They have cleared the poop and they spring into the waist Well struck my herd Well struck Aylward See too Black Simon how he storms among the shipmen But this Spadebeard is a gallant warrior iiy Heaven Sir Nigel is down l cried the squire 1 Up roared J bnuIt was but a feint He bears hinj back He drives him to the side Ah by Our Lady his sword is through him The death of the Genoese leader did nde d bring the resistance to an end Amid a thunder of cheering from cop and from galleys the forked pennon fluttered upon the forecastle and the galley sweep big round came slowly back The two knights had come aboard the cog the shipman walked the deck a peaceful mastorranrjnor once more There Is sad scath lone to the cog

days before the feast of St Andrew that the cog and her two prisoners after- running before a northeasterly wind and a weary tacking up the Gironde and the Garonne droppedanchor at last in front of the city of Bordeaux With wonder and admiration Alleyne leaning over the bulwarks gazed at the forest of masts the swarm of boats darting hither and thither on the bosom of the broad Curving tream and the gray crescent Shaped city which stretched with many a tower and minaret along the western shore Never had he in his quiet life seen so rcat a town nor was there in the whole of England save London alone one which might match it in size or in wealth I trut Aylward said Sir Nigel coming upon deck that the men are ready for the land Go tell them that the boats will be for them within the hour The

we haste ashore and pay our obeisance to him The horses both of knights and squires were speedily lowered into a broad lighter and reached the shore almost as soon as their masters Sir Nigel bent his

toward the Southwest a stranger from the North drifted into this particular city He was just looking around with no special pur pose in view A curbstone real estate broker had on hls list a tract of bottom land timbered but worthless on account of the annual floods This land he had hawked about the street for 75c per acre but found no takers among the home speculators The tr ct was no good It was offered to this stranger for 100 per acre Would he look at ft Yes He looked It over examined every acre of It came back to town and handed over 10000 for the worthless tract Great was the joy of the natives who were lined up at the various bars to drink to the health of the sucker But the sucker returned In about a month with another capitalist from the North and sold this worthless tract for 30 000 But this was not all Within ninety days the second sucker brought a third and sold him the timber alone for 50000 And then the local bankers and conservative capitalists kicked themselves for not thinking of It For years people have been leaving Arkansas and MissourigoIng west looking for opportunities Today strangers are taking their places and finding money on every bush The newcomers are simply developing the resources which the natives failed to recognize This principle holds true of a ma jority of individuals in every com munity We are too near to see the opportunities at our feet

homebuilding As has been indicated the people must got back to the land and industrial institutions to reach their best development must give the worker a chance for a home The Value of a Good Garden Many people fall to realize the great value of a thrifty wellkept garden Even an Inferior one Is much better than none Vegetables are in to a family so fir as health Is concerned to say nothing of the money saved by not having to buy so groceriesItshould manage to obtain a piece of ground and see that it becometj well fertilized and enriched and theta put under a thorough state of cultivation before trying to plant the seeds It only costs a little to buy enough seeds for quite a goodsized garden From St Paul Press By way of affording a practical ob ject lesson in the Homecroft idea George H Maxwell has acquired fifty acres of ground at Watertown Mass less th n thirty minutes hy rail road or fortyfive minutes by trolley up for city workers There it is to be presumed will be illustrated

modern city life ever attempted In this country It is In line with the best enterprises for solving the questions of housing sanitation education and morals As such it should command the attention and cooperation of all constructive social workers The Homecrofters Gild offers garden Work and craftsmanship as a substi tute for the street corner the cheap show and the saloon Apd It offers In addition health contentment and a substantial increase in income to the workers The Increase takes a practi cal form In the shape of health from work In the air from fresh vegetables and fruits from a clean environment and from absence of bad habits from money saved from useless pastimes from absence of doctors bills and from a direct return In the way of com modUles for use in the home or for sale The founder and main supporter of the movement Is Mr George H Max well editor of Maxwells Talisman and founder of the National Irrigation Movement As a student of social con ditions Mr Maxwell has concluded that college settlements and similar movements merely scratch the upper surface of the problem and fall utterly to get under It and crowd It out with a better condition His creed Is Every child In a garden every mother in a homecroft and individual in dustrial Independence for every worker in a home of Ills own on the land MEANING QF HOME ROfT The word Homecroft has been coined by Mr Maxwell to fit the thing he has Inj mind The Scotch word croft moans a very small piece of land farmed intensively by Its occu pant but riot large enough to yield him a living and constitute him a farmer The Homecfofter therefore under the conditions being developed is a labor ing man clerk skilled nrtlsan or what hot who supplements ills regular In come by and spends hIh sparetime in work on the land Hte children may likewise be employed lout Of school hours and at other tithes when they would otherwise be on the street or forced into some one of the street trades to help maintain the home For the children the advantages are ofi vious Healthy exorcise In the open air for a purpose fr sh vegetables and other products amjl occupation are substituted for spasmodic exercise under bad

practically all been appro priated to the use of a garden school gardensTheElizabeth S Hljl of Groton who last year conducted the school gardens in hundredmany more almost two hundred in all have applied for space It is an Interesting sight and a poor commentary on our public school system to see the wistful look of the children not in It as they watch the fortunate ones and Inquire of the instructors as to how long they wjll have to wait Many children not connected with the school watch the workers and play on the grounds po that it has become a childrens center for the town The opening or the garden school has prlIschooltas Is still another opened by the Womens Social Science Club of Newton whose garden is on Jackson Road near Non antumOn the outer boundry of the town the old Emerson Place has been pur chased and set aside as a garden school for boys and even men who desire to do practical work The plots In this garden are large enough to permit of practical experiments and to even supply quite a quantity of vegetables which each gardener is allowed to appropriate to his own use The only requirement Is that oath gardener pro vide his own tools and seed and pay sufficient attention to the instruction and to his work to keep his plot in fair condition and in harmony with the garden as a whole There is in this garden plenty of space not taken and opportunityThe garden Is supervised by a young man with practical experience In market gardening WEAVE BEAUTIFUL THINGS onlyhandicraft byMissexperiment station for the blind In mherIn working order and Instruction has been taken up The aim of the work in weaving as it will be in other home craft work is not to have a weav ing establishment for the production of goods but to conduct a school in weaving and design where women In the community may learn to do work which may be carried on in their homes This as in the case of the croft work will enable them to occupy spare time which would be otherwise wasted or Improperly spent in con genial healthy and remunerative employment It is hoped and believed that such work will enable many women who have to supplement their income to do It in their homes and not be forced Into factories and other un satisfactory conditions A system will be developed whereby looms will be soldtbroughpenses will be kept at a minimum and the highest profits accrue to the workersiHOME LANDS PARCELS IN SMALLi The more farreaching and substan tial feature of the movement is the acquisition and subdivision of land Into small tracts for actual croft purpose

ton point four miles from the city and erected twentyfour houses for the workmen Mr Ueorge Gadbury from long observation mid experience concluded that the only practical way to solve the problem was to take the factory worker out on the laud where he might pursue the natural and healthy recreation of garden ing Says Mr W Alexander Harvey In his book on Bournvlllo It was impossible for Working men to be healthy and Imvehealthy children when after being confined all day in factories they spent their evenings hi an institute club room or publichouse If It were l1e ssary for their health aa It undoubtedly was that they should get 1 View Orchnrd Line by Which Boston Ucacbel1 In FortyflTQ Minutes LANDS WA RTOWN MASS THAT WILL BE SUBDIVIDED FOR HOMECROFT VILLAGE ndantIagebe brought Into contact with nature There was an advantage too in bringing the workingman on to the land for Instead of his losing money in the amusements usually sought In the towns he saved it In his garden prod ucea gtent consideration where the poorer class of workman was concerned And again The cultivation of the soil Is certainly the best anti dote to sedentary occupation of those working In large towns A primitive instinct Is Induged the full value of Which seems hardly yet to have been realized Many believe indeed that with Its encouragement the abuse of the social club and the publichouse will be materially lessened and one of the greatest social evils of the time disappear The experience of Bourn ville certainly gives support to this conclusion for nearly every house holder there spends his leisure In gardening and there is not a single licensed house In the YlllngeI j SEVEN HUNDRED DOLLARS FOR A HOUSE The houses of Bournville were built with special reference to cheapness artistic development sanitation and convenience At a cost of from 700 to 2500 each a much hlpheiL grade of home than the workers had been ac customed to was provided Rents range from 4s Gd to 12s per week not including rates and the death rate Birmingham dusty a necessity for the ttainment of the best results 5 A growth of cooperation which will give to the homecroft settle jintainment halls water supply

home and a conscious livingrtegoardless Concurrently with such betterments tenths per thousand In Bournville The garden features in Bournville are planned with much care provision in most cases being made for some lawn flowers vegetables and fruits To return to the Homecrofters Gild there Is one distinctive advantage In Mr Maxwells plan in that he aims to attach to each home eno s land to make it a feature and not merely an antihemen and for men in the winter He already has under way plans for an experimental group of four houses under one roof to be placed at the centre of a square so as to secure the greatest economy of space and place a Snnny Slope for Berries nnd Vego tables fv AT the worker In direct contact with his preparedbytect Something over fifty acres of land have already been purchased for subdivision and Improvement This will be sold to workingmen for homes for prac plustheA special plan Is to sell homes to in longtimeat a rate which willbe no more than Is usually paid in rent but which will create a sinking fund that will pay the purchase price and in the meantime carry what will amount to an insurance policy covering the amount of the purchase price remaining due so thepropertyout further payment FOLLOWS SUCCESSFUL ENGLISH PLAN The movement Is not intended to be an Isolated one as the Shops and gardens are open to any one who will use them In the right way Mr Max well feels that isolation has been the cause of failure in such attempts and that the people of the community must themselves become a part of such a movement If it Is to succeed Here again the schemq resembles that of Bournville There though practically all the houses have been built by the management only fortyone and two workinper cent work In village within a mile and forty and twotenths per cent work In Birmingham Fifty and seventenths per cent of them are employed at Indoor work In factories thirteen and threetenths per cent are clerks and travellers and thirtysix per cent are skilled workers and pro fesslonal men By this arrangement a normal community life Is main beingdeveloped OVERCOMING PHYSICAL DEGENERACY The Gild Is not making the mistake of trying to make farmers pure and simple out of city workers Such a hard and fast line between city and country will always lead to failure Mr Maxwell says Give the city worker a home In the suburbs where he can have a garden and a poultry yard and where his children can have sunshine and fresh air without stint and you have largely done away with the terrible evils that are cursing the denizens of the congested quarters of our great cities physical degeneracy tuberculosis and social moral and political dangers too numerous to be enumerated Henry W Grady de scribed the antithesis when he said The citizen standing In the doorway of his home contended on this thres hold his family gathered about his hearthstone while the evening ota wellspent day closes In scenes and sounds that are dearest he shall save the republic when the drum tap is futile and the barracks are exhausted The Homecroft Gild has other plans In immediate contemplation Near in the condition of the wageearner the general carrying out of the hone croft idea would relieve the congestion of population in cities and greatly assist in their development along those lines which are o much better than mere bigness A hun peoplelivingan hours ride of a city would make far more business for the city of every desirable kind than the same number closely packed in tenements The homecroft experiment not to be limited to the settlement fostered by Mr Maxwell near Boston The idea combines with its sugges problabilityto ire owners of vacant lands near cities who may be disposed to tx perimei t with it pundredinto a homecroft village The land is

GalvpstonBremen service Wise and well organized effort to induce Immigrants to pass through the large ports by finding and insuring them employment in the interior and by informing them of
