sickness in his stom ach His daughter brought a cup of hot water which for the time brought some relief He went to the rear of the car and vomited and returned feeling but little better From that time he seemed to grow gradually worse andf it soon became evident to those in his party that he was an exceedingly ill man Everything possible was done to relieve his suffering but to no avail Sur rounded by three members of his immediate family and reclining in the arms of his devoted partner in hs evangelistic work he passed away The train bearing the body reached Little Rock shortly before noon and

control of prices and the Bur ley Tobacco Society under he auspices- of the American Society of Equity will make an effort to adopt in the burley district the same tactics thr t have succeeded in the dark tobacc j section of Western Kentucky A meeting of the grow rs of Kentucky Indiana Ohio and W st Virginia has been called to met in this citythe first three days of November to make IcrorPeJmanentin this city for the propagation of the plan The following letter has been submitted by the committee appointed at a recent meeting at New Castle Since through organization and co- operatIon the buyers and manufacturers of tobacco have eliminated all comPeti- tion in the purchase of their supplies and have been able to theI i fh c r producers the prices that they shall re ceive irrespective pf the value of their tobacco and the conditions under and the prices at which tobacco is nowsold by the producers render some remedial action on part imperative if they are tocontinue to raise this article of Assembly of the State of Kentucky recognizing the intoler able that have been foisted on the people of this saw fitr at its last meeting to provide remedy by enacting Senate Bill No permits the pooling of to bacco and other products and the sale thereof and all contracts made Jin reference thereto Believing that the time has come for the organization of our Burley tobacco interests repre of the tobacco producers of Henry Shelby Trimble Owen Pen dleton Washington Spencer and Grant counties have met in convention New Castle on October 1 and 2 to de vise adequate means to protect thei interests and to secure such protection as can only be afforded by thorough or ganfzation of the tobacco producers advantage of which has been demon As Stemming District Association and the Dark To bacco Planters Protective Association all being organizations for the purpose of affording protection to the producers by handling and selling their pooled prqducts at prices commensurate with their true value which they save been able to do through organization and whereas the producers represented in this convention are unorganized and unable to cope with existing unfavorable conditions by reason of such fact now Be it resolved that we the executive board appeal to all tobacco grow ers to pool their tobacco with this or ganizationTtis entered into by grow ers of counties heretofore mentioned is not only from a standpoint of our own interest but in order to promote and protect theother tobacco producing sections of our counties That we may cooperate with them and thereby prevent the downfall of their for we of the Burley of the fact that we are in ized condition are buyer to break the down the other organizations and at the same tinge are fastening the bonds

Do not dally for we are against condition that never before confronted us that is one buyer and the farmers are competing one with another in selling their tobacco and oUier products as well in order to ac comodate Ihe speculators and buyers Let us act as one man meet this one buyer with one seller We believe that the loss sustained to the present crop by reason of excessive rains other unfavorable weather andI at housing time amounts to percent of our crop planted in 1906 In 1905 the United States raised 633 033719 pounds of tobacco and the price realized per pound being seven cents which is one and onehalf cents less than the average as a whole which was eight and onehalf cents per pound of thie amount Burley district planted 159694 acres resulting jn crop which yielded 162274842j pounds for which we fecieved seven cents comrmensurate with its real valve should hriong at least twelve cents per pound If the Burley tobacco growers were or ganized as the dark growers are they could have raised the price of the 1904 crop fully five cents per pound which would have meant an additionrl profit to the1 growers of 685206125 If we had been in a position to de mand a fair price for the crop of1905 we would have recieyed twelve cents instead of seven cents a gain of five ceots a poundon 162274824 or 8113 74210 We have 38000 farmers grow ing tobacco It would not have cost them more than 100000 to have sold their crop through an organization in cluding cost of organizerion One hun dred thousand dollars thus expended wauld have saved over 8000000 in 1905 The average amount of tobacco produced by each grower in 1904 was 4215 pounds To build up the organization and to sell the tobacco would not have cost each member more than 250 He would have received five cents extra on the 4215 pounds orI 21075 Can farmers make any other investment of 250 that will yield 20825 in one year The fact that the Dark Tobacco growers have already accomplished this proves that it can be done in the Burley district We respectfully ask our people to consider this matter seriously organize and regain your inde pendence We the Board of Control of the Burley Tobacco Society believe

better even than that grOwing wild Some growers have made the mistake of using too much and the wrong kinds dF1getcausing the Chinese to complain against the cultivated product However this complaint is never made when the pro per conditions are complied with Three thing are ji cessary to the growth of ginseng First a soilor nearly like that of the woodland c ond shade third drainage We can get the n Ssary soil shade and drainage by plantingour garden on a wooded hillside if we are fortunate enough to possess one This would nee fencing with chicken proof fence for obvious reasons Then if itbe labeled Ginseng it would b under the protection of the recent law that makes it penitentiary offense to be caught in a ginseng garden which protectA against thieves We do not have to possess a wooded hillside and even a flat plot of ground can be Used by raising the beds and making the walls serve jas ditches Soil and leaves fromi the woods the more the better worked into any good garden soil grows first quality of dry root Stable manure that has been r piled out doors for one or more years so that it is thoroughly decomposed can be used in place of the soil from the woods though not considered so good Any kind of shade either natural or artificial answers the purpose There is nothing better than grape vines trained up six foot posts and there let spread at will over wire fencing laid over the tops of the posts Tobacco stalks can be used to cover the space not covered at first by thevines The seeds that ripen in July will grow the following spring but those ripen later do not grovuntil the see ond spring We have found the best time to set out roots to be in the early spring though it is b tto have the beds prepared the fall before If the roots are put out in the fall the repeated freezing and thawing in this climate throws out the bud more or less and f sometime the entire root is thrown outr1 of the ground and killed Buy your H roots in the fall after tllie first frost and lay them on a little mound in some place like a garden where no stock runs flat down a layer 0 f roots and a layer of woods soil or any li tsoil and so on at last well with soil to keep from freezingiASsoon le- the spring as the ground can be worked take out the buried roots and plant them in the beds covering the bed with one half inch of 1toi4 A light mulching of leaves straw or something of the kind is necessary each fall thereafter We have seen in Washington and adjoining counties hundreds jof east v west and north hillsides that would makc ideal ginseng gardens with vary

IRRIGATION PLAN PROJECT TO RECLAIM LARGE TRACT IN SOUTH DAKOTA Ninety Thousand Xcresef Arid Land in lMadeCompleted Belle Fourche S DAS the work of the government irrigation scheme nfrrth of this city progresses people begin to realize the great difference It will make not only in the character of the country but also in the character of settlers who will be attracted by these lands This Belle Fourche irrigation project as It is officially known will reclaim 90000 acres of practically arid Sand lying north of the Black hills and 2100000 has been appropriated By congress for the work The work Jg under direct supervision of the gov ernment but eventually will become the property Of theWater Users assO- ciation which will be composed oall the people holding land under the project The most Interesting feature of the work being done here is the big dam known as the Owl creek reservoir The water taken from the Belle j Fourche by the diverting dam is brought through a canal 61h miles long to this reserjojjL = 7c Jt tsbTfllFlrianaturai basin and the earthen dam 11h miles in length and 115 feet high at the deepest point Is considering both length and height the largest earthen dam in the United States The embankment i1contaln 1600000 cubic yards of earth and will be 500 feet wide at the widest point jt the bottom 63 feet wide at the water service and 20 feet wide at the toP The entire embankment will be faCed with concrete blocks weighing 3000 pounds each and the outer surface will be arranged in terraces and seeded down to grass The greatest depth of the water will be 100 feet and the average depth from 25 to 30 feet As the diversion dam and the inlet canal are practically completed the first water to be used in this scheme will be the water from the Johnson lateral leadingnorth from the inlet canal where the water will be turned on some time next spring So far out of the 13 large projects which have been started the govern ment bas completed one the Txuskee Carson in Nevada where the water was turned on in June 1905 The reclamation act was passed on June 1l1902 and the work on this scheme was begun the very next day The problem which the government will have to meet is that of sediment It is generally stated that the success of ah Irrigation scheme is In inverse proportion to the amount of sediment carried by the river or streams from which the water is taken It was this very matter that forced so many pri Tate companies to the wall and finally made it necessary for the government itself to take up the matter It is es timated that these 13 schemes will re claim about 1500000 acres As there is a considerable cost at tached to the taking up of land under t these projects a cost varying from 250 to 3 per acre yearly for tnyears It will be readily seen that nei th9fthe very poor nor the very shift be attracted by these possi bilities rhe Immediate effect at Irrigation upon the land values is shown as well in the Belle Fourche valley as any place in the world On tle south side of the river for a short distance a number of farms are under Irrigation from a private ditch known asI the Redwater ditch This land now sells for 75 an acre Just

has been Disowned by the leaders of the Democratic party in New York notwithstanding that lie holds a valid deed to the gubernatorial nomination Accredited as being a Democrat and proven so by his checkbook in previous campaigns Hearst is Hearst in reality and there is no other word in the die tionary that exactly fits him He is running on a Hearst platform and is eantering around the political track in the peculiar Hearst style so unconven tional to classical politics so objectionable to many and so mysterious to all i He is pleasing sOme people and some people do not like him his manners nor J his views But will he win Will those who like him outmumber those who do not on election day Will he win The peculiar style of man was un mown heretotore Business circles never knew a man so

bosses in advance and could not comply with the promises they had made the voter s They look upon Hearst as the first opportunity to gain relief acknowledging him to be an experiment at best but they hope for better results than they could otherwise secure New York is owned by a lot of meri who are robbing the people and the appellation Democrat or Republican which they may assume no longer redresses the wrong or mitigates the suffering en tailed Hearst is the one man who has dared to stand against this aggregation of criminal wealth He has fought it minis newspapers and he has fought it in the courts with attorney fed from his bank account The poorer classes aslangreater leverage to prize a few wealthy men away from feed troughs they have erectedand which are filled wlth th pittance of the poorest class of peopl- the world ever produced Two years ago there waS competrtio- between the street cars the elevated trains and the subways Then the people had enough cars running to ride comfortably Today every street car line elevated road and subway in the city is pwned by one conpany and con trolled by one man The consequence e is that the number Pf cars in use has decreased thirty percent in proportion to the amount of travel while the ac comqdation on the lines used by the poorer classes have grown miserably bad Hearst has fought this and the traction company is fighting him He has fought the gas trust and the g trust can see nothing good in tyim an is spending its moneyagainst him Hearst fought the ice trust and all the ice trustofficials out of the peniten tiary will give Hearst the hardest knocks in their power He has fought other trusts operating in the city and they whether under Democratic or Republican ownership will fight him to the bitter end and all the people in the city are realizing that party affilliation will not influence these men in their votes But on the other hand there are those who have been missused by the traction who have been robbed

just after a snow storm we saw a ficok of some fifteen wild geese silently pursuing their way towards their Southern home It would be interesting to know more of the habits of these migratory birds that had prob ably come from far off Hudson Bay where amid the solitude of that deso late region they had made their nest and reared their young undisturbed by the presence of man and as the long coolarctic nights begin to come on their instinct teaches them that winter is near After gathering together his family and friends the leader gives the marching orders in the familiar honk then making circle after cir cle they rise higher and higher above all earthly object and without chart or compass shaping their course to ward the South pole they begin their long journey Their Northern home is soon left far behind the Great lakes come and go the Canadian line is pass ed cities rivers and statilines vanish from view still wan derers speed on with an eye single to their Southern home As Lsaw

Last summer Mrs Lee Martin of West Boyle thought her flock of hen must have quit business but the fad of it was they never had any thoughts of that kind but were just laying like smoke It seemed that these biddies allgonegreat nest out in the weeds and grass and all were laying in it Oh my i What a nest of eggs this good woman must have thought when she found itIThe nest had overflowed and eggs had j run out in the weeds until it reminded one of an egg case in a second hand grocery for it contained103 eggs The next largesUnest of eggs I ever knew of was fourteen our meadow back early in the seventies had fiftysix guinea eggs initl Our unday school had gone into winter quarters and no meeting at our church Your correspondent felt as if he would love to have a kind of off Sunday So at the breakfast table we made a suggestion to mother that we go to Marion county to see hfcr daugh ter which offer was readily accepted We were soon on the road The days Was a perfect one the leaves were just tinged with a golden hue The fields had a brown melancholy look as if dressed in half mourning The hick ory nut trees that stood beside the way were loaded with nuts and rich clusters of grapes hung from the vines The knobs lifted their tall rugged heads in the far off batik ground which made one think of chestnuts and rambles in their sombre shades and the haze of an Indian summer day overspread it all All of which made us feel that life was sweet and glad we were born on an October day After some two hours drive we were at our journeys end and Fanny was so glad to see mother as children especially daughters are al ways glad to have her come I went on to church and was welcomed by the pastor and brethren in such a way as to make us feel as if it were good to go away from home sometime The preacher told us about putting on the whole armor that we might be ready to withstand the attack of the enemy They sang the old songs that reminded us of our youth which ishard to improve upon After the service which was a delightful one several of the Brethren invited me home with them which great ly pleased us Is it not strange that we seemingly are loved and honored away from home more than at home We are called by our familiar names and get to be so common in our own neighborhood We came away feeling that we hada delightful trip among the good people of Pleasant HilL Bro

a Success In business it problems arise ai man seeks to master them if inhar monies threaten toeclipse his success he seeks to remove them he does not let things drift or work themselves out in some way he knows it is his business to find out where things are wrong and how hecan set them right he does not shut his eyes to troubles and think that he is curing them by obscuring them Men are often resigned to conditions in their home that they would never surrender to in their business they Often accept as inevitable in their home life what they could change if they only would It is cowardly to ac cept any wrong condition if any amount of effort will right it People often fan themselves into the serene selfsatisfaction that they are bravely accepting fate when they are really only too mentally lazy or mqrally inert tbtake a bold firm stand to win the freedom of thought and action they desire There are little rifts in the lute of married happiness that unnoted and uncorrected widen until the music of sweetness is lost There are little diff erences that a few moments of listen ing a few moments of kindly wisdom eand explanation will set right but fool ish pride may deter and a heart is wounded unrest vague misunderstand ing and suspicion dethrone confidence and a sad growmgapart may darken the years Sometimes the lack of proper understanding comes from that moral cow ardice that seeks only to preserve peace in the family This is a false totlight of real peace for a silent suffering protest which eats into the heart From the November Delineator Daily Herald AID SUN 200 t

and n netenths if not the ills that the human flesh has since been heir to have been charged to her indiscretion It was a generous fault and generously hath she answered it Yet her fault was not without extenuation She sinned alas it is too true but she was more sinned against than sinning As myriads of her children have been since she was a victim of misplaced confIdence 4 fiendish advantage was taken of her gentle confiding unsuspicious nature and she was induced tocatIthe fruit of that forbidden tree whose taste brought death into the World and all our woe but she did so from no mean degraded motive She was ac tuated the loftiest impulses of an aspiring but misguided soul an earnest yearning for grander fields of intellectual enjoyment and the glorious but elusive ambition the husband of her love might become the equal of the gods True her error brought disaster and death to her race yet it was the decree of Eternal Justice that from her blood should spring the Divine Being who should open to her and her fallen Children the jewelled portals of a blisssful immortality beyond the tombHow it may have been attributable to the fatal transgressions of our primeval mother it would now be needless to inquire but it is a fact in the earliest ages of which we have any authentic account the condition woman the world over was but little superior to that of an ordinary beast of burden She was not only treated as a commonj drudge but regarded as a jcle of merchandise a subject of venal traffic to be bought and sole as any other commodity of commerce Mind the father ofn

Is not to be supposed however that during all that flight of centu vies none of them ever did anything wrong Their absence from the docks of the criminal courts which some have cited as an evidence of

them to kiss all their acquaintances of the other sex oh meeting them in order to peep their characters in that partic ular nod only free from reproach but above suspicion lint I trust I may be

speech the secretary discussed government own ership of railroads Mr Bryan re minded the audience that President Roosevelt had In two message declared that government ownership was the only alternative if the people failed to secure effective regulation and ask ed why Secretary Shaw had not at tacked the proposition of govern ment ownership when the president suggested it as an alternative After setting forth his plan Which he proposed as a substitute for the national ownership contemplated by the presi dent and showing that the dual plan federal ownership of trunk lines and State owners ip of local lines would givathe idva tage of government ownership witlibi it the dangers pf cen tralization Itsaid One of the things which jed me to believe that the ultimate renfely istblbe found In ownership Is tote corruption which the railroads have brought into politics And there is One ilus ration of this corruption with which Secretary ShaW himself is familiar When he was governor of Iowa the Iowa penitentiary held a convicted criminal named Frank Sher cliff Shercllff belonged to a group of men who were influential in ward politics and Governor Shaw was ask ed to pardon him in order tfoat he might assist in the election of a re publican congressman and the request wa6 madeby a railroad lobbyist who mape the request for a pardon In return for favors rendered by the republican congressman in the passage of a railroad measure I will read you the letter which was found in the files of the governors office after Secretary Shaw retired from the gov ernorship of Iowa I will omit the name of the republican congressman who Is now out of politics and the writer of the letter who is now dead I will also omit the name of one per son mentioned in the letter because I do not know anything about his con nection with the matter Otherwise the letter is as follows Cedar Rapids la Sept 15 1900 Hon Leslie M Shaw Des Moines la My Dear Governor When I was In Washington last winter I became acquainted with He help ed pass oUr bill for the settlement of the Sioux City and Pacific indebtedness As soon as the bill was passed Dave as he is familiarly called In Washington came to me and asked me ora parole of Frank Shercliff who Is now in the enltentiary fob robbing somebody on the Sioux city and Pacific road My son and Mr1 ii I understand have written parolebe pardoned but paroled on good behavior and he tells me that the judge who tried him and the attorney who rosecuted him will make a re quest or have made a request to yOU to parole him I suppose there is no doubt he is guilty of the crime charged but Dave says he has been punished pretty well now and that Jt will be worth three or four hundred votes from the relatives of Sher cUff if he can be pa led Daye is one f the best fellowOever met in Washington and I want to beseech yoti in his behalf to parole this man if you possibly can Of course I dont know the details of this matter but Dave was so kind and helpful tome in Washington last winter that I am very anxious that he should be gratified by this parole provided of course that it Is not going to do too much injustice to the public Very truly yours Now here is an attempt on the part of a railroad lobbyist to secure the pardon of a criminal on the electgroundji republican congressman Election is urged on the ground that he republican congressman had helped the railroad in the passage ofa meas fire In which the road was interested Itwould not be possible to find a better Illustration of the extent to which the railroads are interfering In politics Here isa great agricultural State strongly Republican presided over by a high minded citizen for Mr Shaw Is a high minded man who is Intensely republican and yet this lobbyist had the impudence to ask for the pardon of a criminal for poNt ical purposes and as a reason for doing so he boldly stated that he want Ind to pay the congressman back for services rendered the railroad Now if a lobbyist will approach a man like ecretary Shaw with such a pr position what influence do you suppose would be brought to bear upon less conspicuous men or men of less in tegrlty Among the files there was another letter from a railroad attor ney asking for the pardon The pardon was afterwards granted I would not of course assume tkat in granting the a pardon Secretary Shaw was
