most discussed story of our generation WILL BEGIN NEXT WEEK GOOD ADVICE F A Ware Tells Far mers How to Han I T die Tobacco Not many farmers who have been raising tobacco for the market in years past have ever held their crops for summer delivery Therefore a few words to those still holding their tobacco in barns at home will not come amiss In the first place the tobacco should be hung very close in fact pressed moderately together as this will pre vent much loss in weight which happens when often coming in and going out of case In this closehung condition it should be left until the firstof June so as to get the advantage of as much hot weather as possible thereby insuring the tobacco a thorough dryI ing In some rare cases it might do to take down earlier but it is at great risk to the grower for if it should come into the warehouse in too high case so that there is likely to be damaged tobacco after prizing it will have to be at the owners risk and expense This extra expense means that the to bacco will have to be rehung in the warehouse here and the warehouse company can not advance money on it until it is in condition to insure keeping One of the best tests is that after two or three dry still days the tobacco is found early in the day say before 8 oclock to be in good case there will be little risk in bulking it to Care must be taken not to mistAke rain case for the June sweat j r Follow these directions and let every man who knows how to handle in sum mer order render what assistance and advice he lean to his neighbor With our dryin next season we will not have tHislrouble I will be glad to answer any ques tions groWers may wish to ask me in reference to this matter- Respectfully F A WARE Grader Eloped To Louisville Mr Thos Begley son of Mr and Mrs J M

ofTth county unit local option actpf the General Assembly session of BOO making the county the unit in local op tion elections The opinion of the court was announced in the consolidated cases of Board of Trustees Town of New Gas tle against J T Scott from the henry Circuit Court and from G M Gentry agihst JF Peyton and others from the Lincoln Circuit Court The court reverses the Henry court judgment t nd affirms the Lincoln Court The Henry Circuit Curt held the act to be unconstitutional to that effect and the Lincoln Court held to the contrary phe decision of the Henry Circuit Court was rendered by Judge R F Peak that of the Lincoln Circuit Court by Judge W a HelltThe Court says At the time the Constitution was adopted prohibition prevailed in a number of counties and towns of the State by virtue of special laws previously enacted bytthe Legislature Section 61 of the Constitution which required the Leg islature to provide by general law for local optiom elections was careful to say that the previous special statutes for certain localities were not repealed specialSllocalities specified The purpose of the convention is shown by this action to have been not mimicable to local prohibition but rather in its favor Our construction is in view of these conditions and the language Used that the Constitution meant that the local units named should control within their ownterritory thequestion of prohibition that each should have the privilege of sayings exclusively that prohibition should prevail but not conclusively that it should not The construction harmonizes the section so as to allow all of it to stand and to give equal force and power to each unit named If a precinct votes that prohibition shall prevail within its territory it is not competent for any other unit to gainsay the matter If however the precinct votes against prohibition that leaves the question so far as it is concerned it was before any vote was ever taken on it But if the town or city which includes the precinct in question subsequently votes in favor of prohibition the whole town or city thereby becomes dry Or it the subsequently votes dry thesameresult- as to the cqunty is attained But if the county or town vote wet and the precinct has previously voted dry the precinct controls for itself Thus each unit for itself has the option of puttirig the prohibition law into ef fect within its territory And n0 larg er or smaller unit can prevent it This is the only construction of the section that occurs to us or that has been pointed out that will allow equal and uncontrolled power to every one bf the five units named in the section A fair construction of all opinions in connection with section 61 ot the Con stitution is that the Constitution meant to leave and did leave to the Legislature the details of the law to be enacted to carry the provision of the Constitu tion into effect In view ot the chang ing conditions of the future the wis dom of the Legislature could best de termine when the conditions arose as to how often and In what rotation votes in the respective localities might be taken on the subject It was there fore competent for the Legislature to provide By general law for repealing or modifying the existing local law con tinued in force by the Constitution and to allow it to be done by the vote of such locality as the Legislature saw proper The reason no subsequent election in any other unit could change the result in thegiven unit was that the statute withheld the effect Nor are we now departing from anything actually decided in any previous case before this court The Legislature has how for the first tt i r time enacted a law in which it does give a controlling vote to a localityt o each of the unity namedin the event it votes for prohibitIon oyer other units mentioned which may not have voted or may have voted previously against prohibition The question is now raised and presented for decision for the first time whether under Sec tion 61 of the Constitution it has power to make such discrimination We answer that it has It has it because it is not denied to it by the Constitu tion but on the contrary as there must otherwise be a conflict between some of the units under certain conditions it is by implication vested in the Legislature to declare in such event whichshall prevail The court affirmed judgement of the Woodford Circuit Court in local option cases of ONeal vs Minary ONeal vs Wilhoit and same vs Gray Judge Hobson delivered this opinion Those favoring the sale of liquor in Versailles fought after the holding of alocal option election in the whole county of Woodford which went dry to have two precincts in the town which went wet so declared The court below dismissed this petition The court here in affirming says a city of the first four classes is e to vote on the same day as the ntitJedII if the necessary petition is the County Judge in the discharge of his duty should in this as inall matters exercise his discretion to otherI vent an advantage being taken cure justice But he was notasked to do this As no appeal lies from his order directing other elections to be heldsays the court we connot review itand as the County Judge Has a discretion in fixing the day for an election he cannot be controlled by mandamus as to what day he shall fix Lebanon a Dry

CHARLES R MELROY The wonderful improvement in bank ing railroading and other industries in the past fifty years induces me to write this article hoping that it may be of interest and profit to some of your readers Prior to the year 1856 there had been two banks in Springfield one of which the writer hs no record of The Farmers Mechanics however left a record and Mr A C McElroy cashier of the First National Bank has now in his possession one of the notes that it issued bearing the date September 118 signed by Mathew Walton president and John C Calhoun cashier Gen M Walton was one of the founders of the town and John C Calhoun was one of its must prominent citizens He was the father of James P Calhoun who is well remembered as our late postmaster Farmers and Mechanics was a bank o issue and made their notes payable ate their own counter The bank howeyer was not a success and closed up its business Soon alter John C Riley an old citizen who was running a tannery here issued his Promises to payf which were called and they passed very conveniently in ordinary trade In the rear 1859 Hand A McElroy who had retired from the Mercantile business snd were private loaners of money concluded that the business of the town and county justified another attempt to establish a bank and with the cooperation of Levi J Smith Alexander Hamilton and others obtain ed charter for the Springfield Deposit Bank with a capital of 50000 The stock was promptly subscribed and paid in and the bank commenced business under favorable circumstances with Hugh McElroy as President and Charles R McElroy Cashier The capi talstock and deposits were at all times sufficient to meet the demand of bor rowers and often in excess matting it necessary to invest in the stock of other banks and bonds to keep their funds actively and profitably employed Only a few ooks were necessary to conduct the b smess of the bank a tellers blotter general and individual ledgers discount and a weekly state ment book sufficed Depositing and checking out was not so frequent then as now so that the cashier was able to do the business without an assistant and had time to indulge in his fayo te sport pf hunting and fishing The bank was located iiythe rea of the old McElroy building then occup eo by McElroy and Rinehart as a ry goods business house where npw eta ds the grocery store of Irvin McEln y and was not very elaborately furni h ed A plain counter with a drawer i n derneath for the funds necessary i or the day a common desk for the boo and a few chairs for loungers were about all that was necessary The vault and safe were neither fine or burglar proof and it wpuld have been only the work ofa few minutes for a modern burglar to have gone through the whole thing and yetwe felt secure with often as much as 20000 in the safe But that was before the war and we older citizens have an idea that people were more honest then than now Bank and other robberies were very rare and it was not necessary to invest thousand of dollars of the capital stock in burglar proof safes and vaults with time combination locks and electric lights burning all night in the banking room When the Deposit Bank commenced business there were but sew banks Inthe state and they were banks of issue with large capital owned pnncipaly in the East The Bank of Kentucky Bank of Louisville Northern Bank of Kentucky Southern Bank of Kentucky Farmers Bank of Kentucky and Commercial Bank of Kentucky all had branches located at remote and inacessible points and made their notes payable at these points so that the gold would probably not be demanded Burksyille Monticello Somerset and Barbourvijle were favor its points none of which then had mUcJi Jjusiness but were so inacessible that not much gold was called for in redemption of notes The States banks then had high credit and their nOtes passed abroad more currently than thfe notes of almost any other State and were considered as good as gold goldM6our townsmen concluded that he would like to handle fifty doubt eagles and as a branch of the Bank of Kentucky was located at Danville he concluded he would collect up 1000 of their notes which he did and sent a messen geij to Danville for the gold He was in 1000 gold dollars Heconcluded that if he had back his paper that the bank might have its gold The Bank of Louisville loaned the Daposit Bank 10000 of their own notes without interest for an indefinate time the only consideration being that we were to hold them as a reserve fund and to furnish then with what gold we received in the regular course of business This enabled the Deposit Bank to loan allof its own funds and have this 10000 as an emergency fund On one occasion we had to pay out a small amount of these notes but they soon came back Had we not had them we would have been compelled to suspend payment That however would not have been a matter of much importance The bank had the confijjencebf the community ana could have had the check held up until funds came in and there would not have been the cry of ccreatingfpanic 4 tion with depositors When the National Banking Law was enacted in 1861 Congress imposed a tax of 10 per cent upon State bank notes and as it amounted to a prohibition they soon ofltheirwas a to they wee able to close up with good profits to the stockholders The bank of Kentu ky howeyer continued busi ness without circulation until a few years ag when it was converted into aNational Bank The Springfield Deposit Bahk continued in a successful business until the war ahd then on ac count of the unsettled condition of affairs concluded to wind up which they rapidly did as their assets were read sly converted into cash It Was well they did as the country soon became infested with inaurading bands of rob bers and once the famous gang of Guerrillas under Sue Mundy raided the town and murdered one of our best citizens and robbed many others of all they could lay their hands on The Writer encountered the famous One Arm Berry but was relieved by Dick Mitchell who was among the gang and boyhoodIfriend and proposing to see me safely home During the early years of the war the financial affairs of the country were very unsettled and a great many of the banks closed up there business and they generally suspended specie payment and Con gress passed a Stay Law stopping the collection of debts under execution gold fluctuated rapidly in price up with a Federal defeat and down with a Federalvictory At one time 100 in gold would buy260 in United States currency Government bonds fluctuated in the same way a six per cent gold bond sold as low as sixty cents on the dollar and those that had faith in the government credit and bought the bonds and held them reaped a very heavy profit The government also is sued notes bearing 7 per cent interest which yielded two cents per day on the hundred dollars As silver was hoarded up and not in circulation frac tional paper currency was issued in denominations of 5 1025 and 50 cents which was very convenient in making change and was easily carried Large sums of money were sent to London in theformof Sterling bonds Imyself sent a considerable amount for friends who had money and were afraid of the United States securities The whole country was very much demoralized and mens minds were not so much upon business as upon what would be the result of the next battle and how they could best protect their families All things however have an end and the war came to a close in IS65and soon thereafter our old associates con cluded that as the Springfield Deposit Bank had been a success that they would try it again As the old bank had surrendered its charter it was nec essary to get a new one This we did under the name of The Washington Bank and immediately commenced business with a capital of 50000 paid up with the same officers in charge The business opened up well arid it was soon determined to have more conyen ient and commodious quarters so we bought the building on Main street owned by John R Wharton and ap pointed John W Rinehart as a building committee and gave him power to hays the old building torn away and have a safe and commodious modem one erected This duty he faithfully per formed and the building was then con ceded to be a model of beauty and con venience Mr John I McElroy came to the bank about this time and proved from the start a very valuable assistant to the cashier Nothing sensa Continued on third page i y r t I Dodds Has The Odds Advices from the Philippines tel of government difficulties because of One Datto Dodds erstwhile Private Dodds memIberInfrfntry Until Dodds Is dead or pad flea they say there will be no peace In the Inhvy part of the Islands writes the Washington correspondent of the Kansas City Star Once they were bending all their ef forts toward catching and hanging Private Dodds Just now they are pa tiently trying to negotiate with him or so the story runs Dodds was ordinary enough appearing army material when a serpent tongueil recruiting sergeant enlisted him at Boston some years ago Shock headed dull eyed bull neckeil deep chested shambling in his gait Dodds attracted no attention on theI transport beyond the small notoriety of eating more and drinking more awk wardly that the rest But when he and his fellow rookies laded at Manila the Massachusetts factory han kept right on marching from the em of the gangplank through Manila and ut toward the violet green mountains Were lurked the restless InsurrectoA party found him and took him back It was not believed he In tended to desert so he was not punished but was sent with eightyeight other recruits to Join a battalion of the Nineteenth Infantry then stationed In Cebu Dodds glanced Info Ills tent and kept on going Another searching party looked In vain for him and it was supposed he had been killed by natives A little litter there was a night attack by natives and the voice of Dodds was heard urging the enemy to their work Time arid again this oc curred and Dodds always managed to awayWhy joined the Insurgents has never bell explained He may have been inoculated before enlistment with the antiimperialistic virus of Edward Atkinson and other Boston friends of Aguinaldo or it might have been some heritage of Norse pirate blood that blossomed In his brain under the orien tal sun The deeper mystery Is how the untutored factory hand mastered a barbaric people and a more barbaric language In so short a time The soldiers of tbe Nineteenth rejoiced when peace fell on Cebu and the Insurgents agreed as one of their terms to sur render the white renegades and deserters among them At last the outraged Infantrymen would get their hands on Dodds and a halter too but he was not among the renegades surrendered While the exact movements of Dodd from this point are a mystery he Is Supposed to have fled by banca or for chit to Mindanao or Sulu Subsequently he turned up in the household of Datto Tantung on Tawl Tawl island where he was said to have married a daughter of that potentate and to have been Initiated by him and to have been raised to the rank of postmaster among dattos At any rate Dodds wore Ute silk drawers silver embroidered vests and arsenal sash of the Malays did a little cautious pirating with hIs adopted na tion perhaps and was satisfied to be separated from clvlllzatloa and the cocktail which as George Ade says follows the flag Dodds had We mak ing of a good Utah Mormon of the last generation It seems because In all HIS wanderings the native Institution which bo adopted first was the harem And verywhere he was the most unreconstructed of all the rebels against his mother country In time the deserter came to acquire some thing like belligerent right and privilege of treating with American author ity like other dattos But the army has never lost Its desire to catch Datto Dodds In a fight where the fierceness ot the onslaught will make It convenient to overlook giving quarter And Datto Dqdds re ciprocates by stirring up the Malays whenever expeditions and treaties have calmed them down to something like peace Just now he Is

was uniformly successful and satisfactory to the stockholders so that it was concluded that we needed morecapital and in 1871 the Board of Directors determined to in crease the capital l to 150000 and con vert to a National association The articles of incorporation and organiza tion were left to C R McElroy who soon had the stock subscribed and paid up and authority from the comptroller of Currency to commence business which was done in January 1871 with E L Davison President and Charles Rr McElroy Cashier Mr Hugh L McElroy was made Vice President and John I McElroy Bookkeeper Mr Hugh McElroy who had been the pres ident of the Washington and A C McElroy were left in charge of the old bank to wind up its affairs which was so rapidly done that A C McElroy soon was able to take the position of assistant cashier In the First National The bank started out favorably controlling a good deposit and made money from the start easily paying 5 percent dividends i7500 semiannually and adding handsomely to its surplus fundl the ordinary routine of business occurred until we were reliably informed that the James Brothers were rendezvouing in Nelson county and arranging for a raid on the bank We sent to Frankfort and got twenty five rifles with ammunition and had a guard in front of the bank with muskets putin the hands of men that we knew would use them if it be came necessary The bank had some good friends in Nelson county that Ijad been with the James Brothers in a bit ter cause and they gave them warning that if they made an attempt to rob the bank that they would meet with a hot reception and could not expect any aid or protection from them They abandoned the idea and we soon heard of them passing through Willis burg and later that they robbed a bank in Eastern Kentucky The business of the bank continued prosperous until the year 1892 when there was a great business depression throughout the country which became very acute in 1893 when 261 National banks with 46796818 deposits failed and two years later in 1895 115 with over nine millions of liabilities four of the Na tional banks in Louisville failed in one day and other banks there were so crippled that they went into liquida tion The panic was so great that those of the banks that were able t6 continue business would not Ipt out a dollar only to meet their own liabilities The writer went to Louisville to find out just what the condition of affairs were and to see what prospect there was to get money in case our own bank got pressed He found everything completely tied up not a dollar to be had even on government checks but after getting assurance from his old friend Thomas L Barrel President of the Bank of Kentucky that if it became actually necessary to hold us upto telegraph him and he would send us funds by express Some of our neighboring banks proposed a suspension but with the promise that we had from the Bank of Kentucky we would not entertain the idea This money and business depression con tinued until 1896 and I often wonder what would beceme of hundreds of banks now with their small capital and f overgrown deposits if such tines should sweep over the country again and they are sure to do so so net or Heart Weakness The action of the heart de pends upon the heart nerves and muscles When from any cause they become weak or exhausted and fail to furnish

crisis Money is dear the world over With Great Britain not yet recovered from its losses in the Boer war Japan and Russia scarcely begun to recover from the effects of their war and the tremendous losses of capital due to the calamities in San Francisco Valparaso and Kingston and New York absorbing far more than its share of the loanable funds of the country and running up the rates of interest far beyond what the industrial interest of the country justifies These with the concentration of wealth in the hands of a few persons are reasons to fear that our prosperity may suddenly come to an end We will now make a few comparisons to show the wonderful growth of the banking interest in the country Right here at home fifty years ago we had one bank with 71000 deposits now we have tWo in the town with neariy one half million In Louisville there were four National Banks with an aggregate of deposits of 553385 now there are eight with an aggregate of nearly twentyfive millions There are perhaps as niany more State Banks and Trust Companies with as much more making a probable tot liability of fifty million in deposits In the city of New York the Chemical National Bank had in 1871 300000 capital with about six million deposits Its stock reached the unheard of price of 4250 per share par value 100 It has recently paid the enpr nious dividend of 900 on the share has increased its capital to 5 million and has 3 million surplus The National Bank of Commerce had 10 million capital and about 8 million deposits it now has 25 million capital and 193 million deposits The City National Bank ad 1 million capital and 6 million deposits now has 25 million capital and 239 million deposits Many others have grown in the same ratio The deposits of the banks of the United States have increased from 4 billion 945 million in 1896 to 11 billion 351 million in 1905 The banking power of the United States consisting of capital surplus undivided profits deposits and circula tions amount to about 15 billion 334 million with a stock of gold and silver of about 1J billions and this won derful pbwer is fast concentrating in the hands of the Rockefellers Mor gan Harriman and a few others As banking and railroads are closely identified I will now devote a portion ofmy space to their wonderful pro gress and the vast sums of money they represent In the year 1851 the writer made a trip to Philadelphia and went all the way to Cumberland Maryland without seeing a mile ofrailroad track There he saw the first locomotive and train of cars that he had ever witness ed From there he went to Baltimore oyer the Baltimore Ohio road Which was then the lengtn of the line now it covers 5328 miles On his return he came over the Pennsylvania Central now the Pennsylvania This road was only extended to Johnstown near the center of the State and there he had to take a canal boat which carried him to the Alleghany rive down which he came to Pittsburg and on to Louis ville by water The Pennsylvania now has 8287 miles of road and with the stock of other roads controls 14000- miles The great Louisville Nashvrtle- with its 4300 miles had not been built The only road in Kentucky then jwas a road from Frankfort to L 1thatd ts flat bars of iron for its track Now there are 3446 miles in Kentucky and 225000 miles in the United States against 22000 miles in 1857 The total capitalization is 20 billion and is rapidly growing The Pennsylvania has recently announced that they would issue 200 million in stocks and bonds and Mr Hill President of the Great Northern says that the railroads W bill ion 500 million in the nextillnen5 to put them in condition de mands of traffic While now represent 20 millions of dollars it is estimated that the actual investment is about 6 billion and the balance 14 billions water and that the entire pres ent system could be reproduced with 4 billions of dollars The people how ever are taxed 620 million annually to pay for the 14 billion of watered stock and to increase the already swol len fortunes of those who now own one half of the nations wealth One man alone owns 190th of the 106 billions of our entire wealth And of the 18 mill ion families in the country less than 200 thousand own 50 billion 2 million own 20 billion and the rest 16 million families own 72 and are worth abut 2500 each on an average Pre ident Roosevelt in his speech at Washington April 22 1906 said We shall ultimately have to consider the adoption of some such scheme as that of the progression tax on all fortunes beyond a certain amount either given in life or devised or bequeathed upon death to any individual A tax so framed as to put it out of the power of the owner of one of these enormous fortunes to hand on more than a cer tain amount to any individual And in his Message to Congress Dec 4th 1906 he said In the near future our national legislators should enact a law providing for a graduated inheritance tax The provata ot the tax should increase very heavily with the increase of the amount left to any one individual after a certain point reached hTbeen At first apermanent inheritance tax was not approximate to what such a tax should ultimately be ISI not Mr Roosevelt right Has not the time come when Congress should exact such laws as to prevent the entire wealth of the nation being concentrated in the hands of a few The people are now paying about 30 to the family toward the maintainance of this plutocracy The railroads of the whole country are being rapidly gathered up and passing under the control of a few immensely wealthy men who are using the earn ings and credit of one road to control rapidlythe Union Pacific railroad stockwas quqted at 450 per share of 100 Mr Harriman and his associates got poss ession of and reorganized it with im mense profit to themselves It is now one of the great railroads of the coun try controlling under Harriman the Southern Pacific Chicago Alton and the Illinois Central and its stock is quoted at about 180 per share against 4bO per share in 1895 He now has eon trol of 26000 miles of road and is look ingout for more In the manipulations of Northern Pacific stock a few years ago he figured very conspicuously run ning the stock from 100 to 1000 creating a panic in the New York stock market and carrying consternation and ruin to those who were short of the stock It is now In the power of the Harri mans Morgans Rockefellers and Hills to control the stock market at their pleasure advance the price of securities SVhen they wish to sell and lower the price when they wish to buy to get control of another road This power of wealth that is being concentrated in the hands of a few individuals is a menace to our nation Politics are corrupted legislatures are bought up and the State government Is getting under their control Mr Bryan sounded the key note for government ownership of the railroads when he said If the government dont own the railroads the railroads will soon own the govern- m nt While many of the leaders of th Democratic party tlonfc agree with hir i upon the question of government ownership they unanimously endorse hir i for the presidency and I right he e make the prediction that he will be the next President and thathis government ownership ideas will be the popular ideas in the country Are we not haying too much prosperity Is it not adding millions of dollars daily to those who already have the financial affairs of the nation under their co- ntrolIs It not causing millions of dol lars to be invested in wildcat securities Is it note inflating the price of real estate to a point that would not yield 2 per cent net upon the invest met much of which is bought on credit and would be sold under the hammer if hard times were to overtake us Is it not causing hundreds of banks with small capital to spring up and with their overgrown deposits could not possibly stand the strain of one of those business depressions which peri odically cur With railroad liability of 20 billIons of stocks and bonds and a balk liability of 15 billion 400 million for capital stock and deposits and only 1 billion 349 millions of gold in the United States and only 6 billion in the world the railroads increasing their issues 1 billion yearly and our mines only producing 100 million per year does it not appear that we are strain ing our credit to the breaking point and that if financial troubles should overtake us that the result would be awfully disastrous Mr Hugh McElroy the President of the Springfield Deposit Bank anc its successor The Washington Bank who took a very active interest in organizing the First National Bank was one of Springfields most honored citizens and did as much as any other man to promote the material social moral and religious interests of the town and county He died in the year 1877 at the age of 82 Mr E L Davison the first President of the First National Bank after a long and useful

B Chapline who lives on the Handy pike tells us that the other morning he walked out and counted fifty big rats drinking the dew off the grass At- M C I Tewmeys on the Perryville pike they ate the heads off of several pigs and he had to move the shotes from the barn Others tell us they are damaging their corn and eating up the clover in the barns Judge Spencer Smith says they have eaten up for him at least sixteen barrels of corrt more than his horses have consumed Numerous remedies have been suggested and one is that if you will take a biscuit and butter it and spread calomel on it the rats wl soon take their departure Another is to spread cayenne pepper about their haunts A Danville gentle man has the best remedy we have hear of He caught a big patriarch of a rat and put a und his neck and the other ratsapt liking the music took to the woods The belled rat alone remained and neVer seemed to sleep at night but runs around continuously under the floors and porches making such

The ears had been warmed as usual before Jeay1 ing New Orleans with the expectation that the great mass of moist fruit would generate enough heat of itself for later warmth But the change had come too soon and been too great and In saving the fruit under his care Messenger 17 had neglected to take cure of himself He had got back to New Orleans made his report been complimented on getting his fruit through the blizzard In good condition and then bad hurried home and to bed No steamer had come in since and the Honduras was two days ahead other time Moreover Carl was pot a man who cared to share his personal matters with the public Even his Ill ness was his own So it happened that the company had not heard But twenty minutes after the order came Carl Reuter1aged nineteen was j hurrying on the com panys wharf A new man was at the desk Iwhenthedown a page of a ledger before him interrupted with Oh yes I seel 17 You are Carl Reuter Yes sir My father But the man was pushing an envelope toward him Theres your Instructions Now hur ry Youre a younger man than I Im agined from what t have heard of you But sometimes young men do fully as gpodr work as the older ones No no as Carl tried to speak theres no time for talk now Your cars are nearly ready I expect Weve half a thou sand men down there emptying the steamer and loading the cars The Honduras brought in the largest and finest lot We ever had and theyre go- Ing to be rushed through to market The agent told me ito tell you messengers to be especially vigilant with your thermometers on ths trip Have them ripen or retard the bananas so they will reach market in exactly then right condition But of course you Under stundiall this 46r course Carl assented mechan f t rr ically Then witp evident anxiety My father Is Nes7er mind your

the train will be ready to pull out I think Hustle Oh heres Messenger 9 now A heavily bearded man stopped at the desk and took the envelope which was handed him and then listened to the same advice Carl had been given Carl lingered apparently hoping for a chance to finish what he had com menced to say but more messengers were hurrying Into the office and the man at the desk motioned Imperatively toward the wharf Hurry along 17 he ordered From what Ive been told I suppose you to be one of the best men we have but you mustnt loiter like that You y THBRBS YOUR INSTRUCTIONS NOW HURRY favent any

apparently beyond his pe onal option in the matter that he had allowed himself to be dgcldedtoto explain about his father and to see if he would not be allowed to fill the place But from what he knew himself and from what 0 had just said he realized how slight was the chance Perhaps even his father would be sus pended for a time The company did not make much allowance tor sickness Or convalescence Their work was too importantBut 9 had conceded he understood the work and could proUably do It just as well as his father and just now they were In special need of employment His younger brother was

a little more heat than common for It would be twelve to fifteen hours before the now cool bananas could be gin to generate warmth of their own mind thft freezing or even hilling of a train load would mean the loss of a fortune Carl gave his curs several degrees more than was customary and then had the stoves removed and the doors closed Even with an outside low temperature the carefully built cars would then re tain bent until the fruit began to gen ernte some of its own An hour later the train pulled out A cold wave had been predicted but apparently some weather condition had dlrec1tlonlimits

Fiske who has been actively in terested in the welfare of animals proposes to diminish the great annual death rate and suffering on the plains especially during the winter Mrs Fiske Is already assured

wherein while Minting In British Columbia with no other compan ion than my faithful dog I came near er to losing my life than ever before or since says a writer I was in camp littiethe lake of the same name One sel dom finds so perfect a spot for all kinds of wild game and at the same time the waters are inhabited by the gamest fish that ever angler trolled for One bright afternoon with my dog I went some distance in a small Indian r canoe and anchoredat a point where instinct told me schools of pickerel might gather I threw out two lines and picking up the anchor began xo troll up and down the little bayou but without any startling results Ivas convinced there were plenty of fish in this part of the lake and could cot understand why they did not connect with my lines Soon patience ceased to be a virtue My canine companion alwayr With his eyes on the bbbber seemed tired also of watching the corKs diring the small waves but never disappearing quickly as the true fisherman likes to have them fadeout of view I hauled in my lines and rowed th canoe back to the campj It would be more thin an hour before the other members of the camp Ing party would return and I much disliked to quit for the afternoon with out even a single trophy so I hit upon plandecide I I had often heard of exploding sticks of dynamite in the water as a means of catching large quantities fish in a short time and no sooner ha the idea occurred to me than I was off for the town to equip myself with enough dynamite orth experiment anrto the to begin operations To each stick of the ex plosive was attached a long fuse so constructed that one could drop the dynamite 20or 30 feet in o the water The Dog Insisted on Keeping Up with Me light the fuse and the fire would down through a powder filled tub through the water to the stick of dynamite at the bottom My first experiment I decided to con I duct from the shore so that I could have a chance to run behind a big bowlder after lighting the fuse to e cape Injury So I lighted it sad thre the stick of dynamite as far Into the water as the fuse would permit No sooner had I thrown it than m dog true to an old habit leaped ant poiwhere7tatsat
