chairman of the committee on the meeting and after a short talk he introduced Pres ident Frost Judge Benton presided in the Circuit Court and renderad the decision to separate the whites from the blacks at Berea In that decision Judge Benton expressed his personal opinion on the matter which is given in full below and which he repeated at the meeting He said that he was glad to know that his hope was rap Idly being fulfilled A Blessing to B tea t j lIf this case reaches the higher o courts and the views expressed in fthis opinion are sustained and upheld t is the personal view of the judge ml this court that the act of the leg islature which is now so vigorously assailed by the defendant will prove andfto the colored as well as to the white youth of Kentucky Instead of the usefulness of Berea College being hampered it is the opinion of the t judge of this court that its power Jor good will be greatly extended and enlarged If it should be determined by the trustees of the College as the judge of this court hopes and believes it will be to continue the college at Berea for the reception and cduca iion of white boys and girls and to establishat someother point in Kentucky beyond the prohibited distance a college for the reception and educa tion of colored youth the prejudice which has heretofore existed to some extent in some quarters and from brae persons against Berea College t because of the cooperation there of the two races will completely vanish and the generous openhanded peo pie of Kentucky will extend their sympathy to and give substantial aid and encouragement to both institu Mons to an extent to which many Kentuckians have heretofore been un willing to do These views ofcourse k do not affect the legal questions in causek1satisfied with

the East who have responded so nobly to the call to give this amount provided we raise the remainder is a challenge ous here in Kentucky and one that we certainly ought to have pride enough to meet promptly The Plan of the tanceofIThe followingis the s h Dr Frosts regarding the plan of the school The management will be in the hands of Berea College until a new and representative board of trustees can be organized The teaching force will be partly white and partly color ed The location yet to be selected will be in the country rother than in any town and accessible from all parts of the State The courses of instruction wil Ibe for the training of teachers who shall have an interest in industrial training and for cul tivating manual skill and efficiency There will also be scholarships to assist students who may profit by longer courses of study in other in stitutions so as to raise up an in telligent leadership The equipment must include a school building in dustrial buildings for both men and women jvigirls dormitorv with boarding hall for both sexes a boys dormitory a home for white teachers and a home for colored j hersbarnsIand a large tract qf land ation will be existingSgtschools sand all the religious bodies of the State An impossible Thing Berea College was by the Day Law forced as it were to do an impossi ble thing namely to fofor two groups of students separately what it had been doing for them together This could only be done by large addi tional resources and Berea must stagger under the burden till the Adjustment Fund is raised The history is peculiar Berea was started before the war by John G Fee Cassius M Clay and John Rogers for the mountain people After the war a few colored students were admitted as at Northern Schools and Berea was at once overwhelmed by the task of training teachers for the new colored public schools Many gifts at that time came through interest in the colored race t Set Aside 200000 Forced to separate the trustees seaside 200000 for the benefit of the colored people end have been using the income to send promising young colored people to Fisk Tuskogee and other distant schools Now the Ad justment Fund is to provide 200 000 to take the place of this capital withdrawn from the mountain work and to give another 200000 for the colored people so that the total equipment shall be 400000 The large initial pledges of Mr Carnegie Mrs Sage and others and in fact the whole Adjustment Fund is to benefit both races At the close of Prof Frosts address a motion was made to have Judge Benton appoint a committee to solicit funds for the school here but the appointing of this committee was deferred until sometime Wednesday There will be another meeting held next Saturday at 130 p m at the

dent Roosevelt for information which he may have obtained from the Unit ed States Steel corporation when he countenanced that concerns absorption of the Tennessee Coal and Iron company is the opinion of the spe cial committee on judiciary appointed to investigate the matter The situa tion is proving decidedly embarrassing to the judiciary committee but regardless of this fact it has been decided to proceed with the inquiry and report to the senate Nether the president had authority to permit tho mergerWhen the committee called upon Attorney General Bonaparte to appear before it at a recent meeting a reply was received declining the in vitation This invitation was not made public It is now known that Mr Bonaparte directed the commit tees attention to the act to establish the department of commerce and labor and argued that it is a bar to any demand for such information as the president may have acquired con cerning the necessity for the absorp tion of the Tennessee concern Under the act the commissioner of corpora tions is empowered to gather from corporations engaged in interstate commerce such data and information as will enable the president to make recommendations to congress for their regulation This provision of law concludes as follows And the information so obtained or as much thereof as the president maydirect shall be made public t The data supplied to the president

considera tion but Mr Rainey spoke under li cense of general debate and he was unsparing in his charges of corrup tion and fraud against the persons namedVMr Rainey was particularly bitter Jri his denunciation of Mr Cromwell general counsel for the New French Panama Canal company and counsels and a director of the Panama railroad which is owned by the Unit d States government He charged tha through the manipulations of Mr Cromwell the French Canal company was permitted to steal from the United States government three or four million dollars and that after he had become an officer in fact of the UnitedStates he became a party to an attempt to collect from the Unit ed States a fraudulent claim on the part of the canal company of 2200 000 He also was unsparing in his attack upon Don Jose

Cromwell career would have been impossible Without Cromwell Obaldia would have been impossible Reference to President Roosevelts recent tack on Senator Tillman was made by Mr Rainey in asserting that Senator Lodge of Massachusetts was responsible for the expenditure on Jan 1 last of over 1000000 for the purchase the steamships ShawmntlV and Tremont for the Panama Rail rpad cojnpany which thecanaLcom mission did not want and did li toneed but which were bought b cauHr the constituents of the senior sea v ator from Massachusetts wanted to sell them JTr Rainey said that for some weeks the secret agencies of they gov ernment had been at work investigat ing the senior senator from South Carolina They have he saidudis covered that herused his frank in advertently in private correspond ence and so deprived the government of revenue to the amount of two cents and the matter was considered important enough to be embodied in a speclal messagje from the president to congress The senior senator from Massachusetts I believe is still in vited to White House dinners is tjne presidents friend and adviser and the cabinet maker for the incoming president I have not heard of any secret service agents disturbing the senior senator from Massachusetts and yet he Is directly individually and solely responsible that there was taken out of the treasury of the Unit ed States over 1000000 Mr Rainey referred to the fact that there was pending and about to be adopted in the general assembly of Panama the most infamous railroad proposition ever submitted to any government by which Randolph G Ward of New York was to be largely the beneficiary He called attention to what he said was the failure of Arnold Shanklin the American con sul general at Panama to make a report requested by the bureau of for estry last year because he evidently feels he owes his position there to William Nelson Cromwell and charged that certain interested par ties were seeking to levy tribute upon the people in connection with these timber land frauds It will be interesting to know who the gentlemen are who are attempting in this way to impoverish the republic of Pana ma he said aId he mentioned William Nelson Cromwell Roger L Farn ham W S Harvey and C P Taft These patriotic gentlemen said Mr Rainey in conclusion therefore are being permitted not oily to rob the republic of Panama but indirect JSfo rob the treasury of the United States and in their efforts In this direction they have so far the complete cooperation and the active assistance of the present administration and of the next president of tie United States At the conclusion of Mr Raineys speech which consumed over an Ti ur and a half Messrs Stevens of Minne iota and Kustennana of Wisconsin expressed their disapproval

sitting or reclin ing may arrange them according tones comfort These are needed it is true but they also need a support The wall is usu ally too far back from the front edge of the divan to serve The two large pillows made of the material which covers the divan are not only comfortable but artistic They may be stuffed with excelsior into coarse muslin or ticking then cov ered with the chosen fabric They look better with a heavy cord around the edgingIf end of the divan is against the wall as well as its side a third pillow may be added to give an added framework to the little pillows This

was without official ex perience that he had served only a few terms Ih the Illinois legislature and one term in congress and that he was practically a failure in politics his course In congress having driven him into private life for many years and his radical sentiments in the de bate with Douglas having defeated him for the senatorship They also urged against him the fact that he had been beaten for senator on a previous occasion making two defeats for one office Many other things did they al lege which seemed like very large ob stacles then and look like very small ones now As for the charge that he was a po litical failure a close examination re veals the fact that it was Lincolns honesty alone which caused his re verses In congress he was too hon est to approve all the administrations policy regarding the Mexican war When he ran for senator the first time he lacked a few votes of having enough to elect him and magnani mously tharw his strength to Lyman Trumbull In order that a man at least part way right might be elected When running against Douglas Lin coln pad the bravery to declare the nation could not endure half slave and half free This and other bold utter ances lost him the senatorship but gained him the presidency Indeed common people believed LThe Lincoln inIinvestigation reveals the unusual fact that each of Mr Lincolns defeats left him stronger not weaker He was building his political house on the rock of principle not on the sands of temporary success For this reason the charge of offi cial inexperience did not hurt him It- si all right to hold office if one at the respectbutthe other he is not apt to go higher Long fealty to a cause Is a greater recommendation to the people than long tenure of place Lincoln was twentythree when he first ran for the legislature and twenItyfive when he was first elected That tallest defeat he ofteq said afterward was the only one he ever suf fered in a direct appeal to the people So much for the charge that he wasIUa political failure The common people believed In Lin opportunitypractically all the votes in New Sa leis where he lived although it was Democratic while he was a Whig Lincoln was only beaten that time by people who did not know him Never again was he defeated by popular tote The only thing that enabled Douglas to win in the contest for the uatorship was a gerrymander In theIlegislature Had direct election of sen ators then obtaliid Abraham Lincoln would have bees United States senator from Illinois and not Stephen A Douglas fur Lincoln beat Douglas about 4000 When Lincoln was in the legislature however the euatorial contest was nearly a quarter of a century away He served in the body ejght years A su preme mark of his greatness is that t Copyright 1909 by the tJAmerican Press Association 0 t he retained his honesty all that lime A man who can go through eight years of an average legislature and keep honest is worthy of higher things An other remarkable thing about Lincolns legislative career is that he introduced few bils The business of the average legislator is to introduce a whole grist of bills he knows cannot pass just as the business of the average legislature Is to enact a grist of laws that cannot be enforced The fact that Lincoln kept free from the creation of surplus rubbage of this sort is another mark of his unusual quality Outside of keeping his character and rising above the deadly bill introducing habit Lincolns most conspicuous service in the legislature was In getting the capital removed to Spring field When he entered the body it met at Vandalia The removal strug gle came a few years later and Lin coln led the Springfield forces Anyone who has ever been through a coun ty seat fight can arrives at some Idea of a state capital war by multiplying one county by all the counties In the state Nearly evecity and budding hamlet in Illinois wanted that plum and it took hard work and general ship to land it Springfield then con slated of a few houses and a large number of ambitions For such a town to ask for the state capital ex- hIbited gall of a high quality but to capture it away from all the other competitors took executive ability and sleepless endeavor The credit for the achievement was chiefly given to Lit coln One of the places in the race was Jacksonville with the redoubtable Stephen A Douglas as its champion Poor Douglas He was u questionably an adroit politician and a man of unusual ability Among the ordinary run of horse trading politicians he would have been preeminent The a only trouble with him was that he was pitted against a man HIsE was the fate of the Imitation when it meets tho real thing Lincoln beat Douglas in a the race for a wife in the contest for the state capital in the campaign for the presidency and really in the can vas for the senatorship for while Douglas received the empty honor Lincoln had the glory and the popular vote The Little Giant had the shell of the cocoanut but the big giant had the meat and the milk During Lincolns legislative service Illinois was on the boom The Interj nal Improvement mania was In full force There was little or no money In sight but the legislature capitalized the great expectations of the future and appropriated millions The world has never seen such exuberant finan ciers as the legislators of a new state Ordinarily they have not enough real money among them to start a small country newspaper yet the large and generous way they mortgage the fu ture and give away the peoples sub stance makes Wall street look small and conservative in comparison Iti must be admitted that Lincoln was about the leader of this sort of boom legislation in Illinois He want ed to be known as the De Witt Clin ton of the new commonwealth Some canearerme atf p Is not fair True that early extrava gance did almost bankrupt the state Bur who could have foreseen the panic of 1837 The people demanded these internal improvements elected their representatives on that sort of plat form and in the legislature itself there was practical unanimity in push tag these bills The purpose was good It grew out of the right spiritthat of optimism and construction The only trouble wins that the Illinois legislators of that early day were not high finan ciers and had not learned how to water stock Lincoln never did know any thing about finance either public or private But he always belonged to the constructive side and placed the nation abovp self and that is more than most financial experts can boast In his last two legislatures Lincoln was the Whig candidate for speaker which made him the minority leader of the house He was on important committees and was regarded not only as one of the most convincing debat ers of the body but better still as one of its most effective working members His service in congress did not begin till 1847 six years after he left the Agetother able and ambitious men in his district As a result three or four of them had to take turn about and Lincolns turn came last If Abraham Lincoln had remained in congress more than one term he would have become a leader just as he hen been in the legislature It requires long service to gain prominence in either house in Washington Mr Lin coln was much more to the front than the average new member He gained fame as a debater and a wit his speeches were made campaign docu meats he was soon known as the best story teller In congress and he was winning his way in more solid and substantial things Like most of the conscientious Whigs of his day how ever he was not In full accord with the Mexican war Several great and good American statesmen have com matted political harakiri by opposing some of Uncle Sams wars In this very struggle Thomas Corwin one of the greatest stump orators In Ameri can history prepared the oven for his political cremation Nor was he the only one Lincoln himself was forced out of public life for practically ten years That he Survived and was able to reenter at all showed his hold on the people of Illinois His district which had been Whig was changed permanently to Democratic We preach and practice free speech in this coun tryexcept In wartime This is one reason why the sooner war is ended forever the better Anything that pre vents liberty of thought and expres sion Is a false thing Lincolns chief sin against the genius of the Mexican war was in the introduction of what were known as the spot resolutions The reason he could not be forgiven for them was that they could not be answered They rut the administration in a hole a sit uation in which no administration likes to be The Mexican war Is a period in our national history concerning which most patriotic students do not care to be too inquisitive I generally try to skip it myselfnot the fighting I mean but the causes that led up to it The fighting was rather one sided but was glorious from our viewpoint But as for the things that produced itwell why not talk about something else One of Lincolns most famous speeches In congress was that In which te exploited General Cass as a military hero It belonged to the order of campaign stump speeches but was gocd of its kind The relation of cam paign speeches to real orator is about the same as that of campaign songs to real poetry In fact the average cam paign as It has been conducted Is a peculiar combination of mendacity pet tifogging and barroom wit This is its public aspect The inside part ofltwould usually put somebody into the penitentiary if it were public Cheap adulation of our candidate and cheap abuse of the other have been the rule Fortunately we are beginning to es cape from the crassest features of the thing In Lincolns day they were at heir height That was not his fault The tool of campaign oratory he took as he found it and used it effectually In this particular General Cass speech Lincoln recounted his own exploits in the Black Hawk war His manner of handling the subject showed great and redeeming virtuehe did not take himself too seriously To understand Mr Lincoln both in this earlier part of his career and at later period it muss be borne in mind that In the best sense of the term he was a politician This was true of him as a Whig and later as a Republican Nor should it be forgotten that Mr Lincoln was a party man He in Fisted on organization and on strength cuing the party at every possible point One of his reasons for oppos- Ing any alliance with Judge Douglas at the time Mr Greeley and other influential Republicans were urging puch a union was that It would dis- Integrate the party In his candidacy for the senatorship and In both campaigns for the presidency he announced his fealty to the party platforms In fact he gave a very short letter of acceptance pointing to the platform as a sufficient declaration of Ills principles When a candidate for president he not only made his let tars of acceptance short but refrained almost wholly from speechmaking or expressionsThuseonal views as far as possible from the canvass and put the partys views Into the foreground Abraham Lincoln was a politician rne of the

TOViNBOOMEvery AGfNTS Become a La- cal Publicity Bureau tpROMOTE FACTORY SITES h Merchants Particularly Concerned In r Having Such Establishments Locate ProsperityrCampaign May Be Made The city publicity bureau is becom ing a fixed institution in this country Many cities particularly in the north west maintain regular bureaus for the propagation of publicity concerning their attractions and advantages Even Boston the hub of the uni verse fifth in population in the Unit ed States is engaged in such a cam paign for city booming- It is perhaps unreasonable to expect a small town to maintain a paid pub licity agent yet there are some of the smaller cities which seem to find it profitable The average town must be boomed by volunteers Every citizen may constitute himself a publicity agent and proceed to make his town better known to outsiders The big city bureaus take up such matters as factory sites and opportuni ties local trade advantages and the like The small town resident can do likewise with a reasonable promise of goodSof his community In these days of overcrowding in large cities with high cost of living high rents for floor space and other unfavorable conditions many manufacturers are on the lookout for available country towns in which to locate their plants or to es tablish branch plants The advantages of a location in a smaller town are obvious In nearly every town of a few thousand people there are many young persons unemployed who would welcome heartily a chance to get a job with some manu facturing concern Both boys and girls young men and young women are available In the average town for fac tory work In the absence of such opportunities they are Inclined to leave home and seek work in the cities where at best the chances for success and happiness are but meager With many parents in the smaller towns there is constantly present the pathetic dread of parting from their children because the latter approach Ing maturity are ambitious to get into the big world outside and earn more than they can earn at home With a manufacturing concern located in your town you can keep your children at home where the conditions of living are vastly superior to the city condi tionsThe t town merchant is particularly l concerned in this matter A branch J shoe factory for instance not only will give employment to the unem ployed at home enabling them to earn money for spending at home stores but it will bring new families to town A monthly payroll of several thou sand dollars means just that much more mone In local circulation The merchant gets the benefit of the in creased demand for all the necessaries of life and for some of the luxuries Almost any town possess va suita ble site for some sort of mt actur Ing establishment In good ricul tural communities a canning factory works In every direction to benefit the people It supplies a home market for the farmers and gardeners produce It gives employment to home people It more for home circu lationtIf there Is no fund In sight for the employment of an agent to push things In this line the local business people might get together and do much toward making the advantages of the town known to manufacturers In search of locations outside the big cities One excellent plan suggested by an expert in these matters is to have a tasty booklet or circular print ed at the local printery setting forth the merits of the town and surround ing country giving population figures J transportation advantages prices of available factory sites and such other I Information as the occasion may indicate This booklet should be kept on hand by the merchants and other busi ness people in quantities sufficient to enable them to Inclose copies in every letter written to outsiders Another plan that has worked well In some towns is for the business men to club together and buy some regular advertising space in the home newspa per where interesting information con cerning the town may be kept stand Ing As a matter of fact only the type will be kept standing The infor mation thus expressed will travel widely It can be made to travel still more widely if the citizens will secure extra copies and mail them wher they will do the most good A town In which every responsible citizen is a walking talking writing fighting publicity bureau and town boomer Is not calculated to remain very long an unknown quantity The outside world will discover that that town is on the map and will not have to stick a pin In the atlas at that point to remember the fact The writer once knew a man In a Missouri town who was regarded by his friends as a benevolent lunatic be cause he went around talking up his own town as the best burg on the map of the United States He visited many other towns and cities always blow ing the horn of his home town That man no longer is regarded as a crank His talk has built up his town and last year the grateful citizens contrib uted from the money he had enabled them to make and bought him an automobile k t I ORIGIN OF THE OCTOPUS How the Mail Order Business Had Its Beginning fIn view of the fight against the mail order business now being made throughout the country in the interests of the local merchants a brief article in the magazine called System on the origin of the mail order trade is high ly interesting While the founder of the business and others engaged therein are engaged in a perfectly legitimate calling there can be no doubt that this constantly expanding mail order business is a real octopus It reaches out its millions of tentacles to the farthest corners of the country seizing and raking in the dollars which should be left in circulation around home These dollars are the lifeblood of the community and the mail order octopus sucks them out of the commu nitys system Fortyseven years ago says System a young man then a clerk ina small general store at St Joseph Mich ob served with some satisfaction that res idents of many smaller towns miles distant could be attracted from the tradesmen of their own village to this selling center Eour years later as a salesman in ti fiSeryedlwith dents of distant towns and from farm ers living miles away in the agricul tural sections of southern Illinois In diana Iowa and Nebraska Another period of three years and having served as a buyer and then con nected with a St Louis house he stop ped at a town that stood as a country seat in southwestern Missouri He was in a small store which had attained the position despite the limitations as to extensiveness imposed by its rural location of the smart retailing concern of the little city The proprietor had just inclosed a small parcel in an en velopeHere Jim the latter called toa clerk take this over to the postoffice Its for Mrs Henderson over at Green ridge Its surprising he continued turning to the visitor how the folks over at Greenridgeone of the small towns within a thirty mile radius stick to me I have a good many cus tomers over there Some of em write almost every week for goods The storekeeper over there doesnt seem to hold his people very well Guess he doesnt give satisfaction And these things turned over in the mind of Montgomery Ward gave ger mination of the idea then crude in its imperfection of retailing direct to the customer by mail If these people and the towns and the agricultural reaches of the west were taking on a population of vigorous hardworking ambitious folk who wanted the best they could get for their moneywould buy through letter outside their own towns and at that without any special material inducement being extend ed them why could not a trade be built up if the purveyor would cater direct to these people and offer them attractive advantages of lower prices good service and honest goods The young man is now the head of a great Chicago mail order house that bears his namethe pioneer ina new Industry Home Trade Homilies Its all very well for you to think youre doing yourself justice by buying your supplies from the big city many miles away but in the long run youre doing an injustice to your descendants who are supposed to live in the town which you are killing off by neglecting to patronize home industries You may save an occasional nickel by ordering bargains through mail order catalogues but dont you lose at least a nickels worth of your self respect when you happen to meet one of the home merchants whom you have known all your life and from whom you could have bought the same bar gain Governor Johnson says one of the great issues of today has to do with the curbing of the trusts The chances are ninetynine to a hundred that you agree with Johnson no matter what party you may belong to Very well How about the big mail order trust which Is organized to kill off country merchants Are you a supporter of the mail order trust If you are a farmer and sell your produce to the local stores and then stick stamps on letters ordering ordi nary household articles from a city many miles away wouldnt you think It the proper sort of reciprocity If the town merchants should quit dealing in fresh vegetables and supply only can ned goods to their customers Throughout the country for some months we have heard the cry that there is no money In circulation Times have been tight People who keep up the habit of buying mail order goods on the slightest pretext or provo cation may expect to hear it said that there is no money in circulation around home Cause why They send it out side of the community Tree Planting Along Roads The Stockton Cal Arbor club has commenced an active campaign to raise funds for the purpose of saving the fourteen miles of trees planted along four roads leading out of Stock ton The scarcity of moisture this season makes it necessary that the trees be Watered several times and ad ditional funds are necessary to carry the many fine trees that have been growing through the summer It is also the intention of the Arbor club to later extend the tree planting on the four roads already lined with trees officers of the organization hope be fore many years to have the main thoroughfares leading to Stockton nice shady lanes If AMUSING THE WEE FOLK A Lot of Fun Derived From Old Corks and Matches Now that the long dark evenings are with us the following suggestions for amusing the small members of the household may be of assistance to mothers A great deal of fun and amusement may be derived from some old corks and matches for preference those that have been used To begin with some of the corks must be cut up into little square pieces with a very sharp knife and as a sharp knife la always a dangerous thing in little CORK AND MATCH HOUSE hands and as cork is at all times an awkward thing to cut the befit plan is to cut the corks up for use and when a number of little squares have once been cut they can be used over and- over again The matches should be cut into points at each end when with slight pressure they can be inserted into the corks In this way with a little ingenuity miniature chairs tables settees and other articles of furniture may be manufactured- A chair and settee are illustrated made entirely of corks and matches and it is a good plan to cut out pieces of cardboard and glue smallI to the corks for the seats and In the other cut a cork and match horse Is shown For the body of the horse a whole cork is used the head and tail then sketched out on card board and cut out and inserted into slits cut in the cork A piece of fine string or cotton will make the reins and four matches andI FIJBNITOBE MADE WITH COBKS four little squares of cork form the legs An oval piece of colored paper pasted on the top of the cork repre sents the saddle and completes the horseAll kinds of animalspigs sheep cows etccan be manufactured in this manner Fads For Women An ingenious invention for the house hold IS an article constructed for lifting hot pots or pans from the stove or for taking utensils out of the oven without the use of a rag or cloth The panalift as it Is called Is made from steel wire and is guaranteed not to bend under the heaviest weight- It adjusts itself to any pan and isa great improvement over the old meth od of using a rag which may or may not be germ laden Then again there is no fear of burning the hands or fingersThe dustless duster is something new as a labor saving invention You just rub the place to be dusted and the dust Is gone not to another place In the room but into the duster Once absorbed it cannot be shaken out as in the case of the usual dust rag for it must be washed out with warm water and soap This cleansing proc ess however does not destroy the chemical properties of the cloth The duster costs 25 cents and cleans furniture metal glass or wearing ap parel when a dusting is needed It is very soft and may take the place of a silk handkerchief for clean ing purposes Too Greedy Robert Herrick the brilliant realis tic novelist said at a recent lunchepn in Chicago There is a type of American wife who In her greed for wealth and dis play brings unhappiness on herself She rather reminds me of the fat man and the table dhote dinner This man entered a restaurant that served a dinner at the fixed price of 75 cents He knotted a napkin about his neck and fell to heavily so heavi ly In fact that the waiter after a whispered conversation with the pro prietor approached him and said Beg pardon sir but Ill have to charge you a quarter extra You eat so fat man red and short of breath from his excessive gorging said earnestly For goodness sake dont do that Im nearly dead now from eating 75 cents worth If you make me eat an other quarter Ill bust A Wrap For a Doll If you want to make something new and attractive for the big best doll which every little girl has and carries on important occasions fashion her one of the new opera cloaks like the girls of this season wear They are made of broadcloth lined with silk or satin They fall loose from shoulders to hem of the skirt and have a gathered hood at the neck which Is llnedlto match the cloak This will be a new touch to the dolls wardrobe Do not tie the cloak in front with ribbon but with two tiny frogs and then It will look very much like the real thing r t VAGARIES OF WEIGHT How Can a Pound of Food Make One Three Pounds Heavier Here are two persona experiences of mown that are equall striking After having put on rather too much weight probably through excess and other mistakes of food and drink I played a severe tennis match and lost seven pounds in weight Then 1 took a glass of wine and at once by this put on two pounds Then I took a meal slightly larger than usual and put on another two and a half pounds though the meal itself weighed only one pound On another occasion when I had fasted for a day or two and had natu rally lost two or three pounds a day I ate a meal weighing about one pound and went up in weight not one pound but three pounds H6w can only one pound in food add three pounds in weight How in the case of other people can three poundsa days food and drinkadd nothing at all In my own case one principle appears and this is that my nature is at any rate rapid in getting toward the normal but comparatively slow in getting far below or far above the normal A not uncommon but very striking shampooerIa bath in London He finds that after his days work which involves copious sweating and hard physical exercise and scarcely anything to eat or drink he goes up inI weight some two or three pounds mere ly by resting Eustace Miles in Metro politan Ma7esine- STRANGER THAN FICTION The Way the Captain ofa Slavo Trader Was ConvictedIRomance writers are often blamed for making the plots of their storiesI turn upon slight chances and improba ble incidents but here Is an Incident In real life stranger than fiction In 1799 the cutter Sparrow brought the brig Nancy into harbor at King ton Jamaica under suspicion that she was engaged in the slave trade But although many circumstances pointed to this fact no clear proof could be obtained as the brig had no papers from which the charge could be sub stantiated The suspected vessel was therefore discharged but the day be fore she left the harbor a manof war arrived bringing some documents that clearly proved her guilt These papers had been obtained in a highly improbable manner While cruising off the coast of Santo Domin go the crew of the manofwar had amused themselves by fishing for sharks One monster was captured and cut up on deck and in Its stom ach was found a bundle of ships papers the very documents flung over board by the captain of the Nancy when he was boarded by the Sparrow Curiosity led the captain of the man ofwar to clean and examine the papers and the result was that he brought them before the authorities a4 the nearest port The unlucky brig was condemned on this romantically acquired evidence St Paul Pioneer Press A Large Excuse A French sentinel

Of some of the crude and outgrown methods used on Chinas Grand canal a writer In the North China Daily News remarks The junction of the real canal with the Wei river was not by means of a lock but simply a high and steeply sloping mud bank over which the grain vessels had to be dragged by the force of perhaps many hundreds of men It should be borne in mind that in China the lock of a canal is not much more like our ides of what that name connotes than it is like a padlock Amid constant and often serious changes of level with an uncertain and not infrequently a scanty supply of water and with a grain fleet which traveled in blocks of some eighty vessels under one officer It was necessary to devise some way for keeping them together and for transferring them as a consolidated unit with this in view For this reason a Chinese lock on the Grand canal Is nothing but a stone gateway Into which large boards maybe lowered through a groove In the stones restraining mst of the water from Its flow until there Is a depth sufficient to float all the craft wh n the boards are pulled up and the entire fleet passes through After this the boards are agate lowered for another division of the grain boats In Case the water givee onta by no means unlikely occur= rencethere Jf nothing to do mt to wait until Siwhere rsiJ r l r j I II i 4S r b- Pag IC0 z t OJ Fur 17l ITHE WINCHESTER NEVIS

The President in his mes sage called for action against these newspapers and was particularly em phatic in his statement that their punishment should not be left to any individual libeled Webelieve these suits are danr geious ones The principle if sus tamed that the Government in power at Washington may prosecute a newspaper for an alleged libel against it is trenching on the freedom of the

wired Governor Gillet that another letter to him was on the way This is ex pected to throw more light upon the situation as regards Japan and America Grove Johnson author of the bill segregating

Value to Children of iIGrowng Trees and Shrubs Comfort is not the only reason for planting abrut the schoolhouse The 1rees have also an educational value Indeed bare grounds may be regarded as an opportunity Children interested in the work of selecting planting and growing trees and shrubs about the school can gain in the work no little knowledge of right principles and methods Many people think that to plant a tree all that needs to be done is to dig up a sapling or buy it and set it in a hole This is a great mistake responsible for many unnecessary failures Some knowledge of tree culture is a thing sure to prove useful to a large proportion of school children As the public schools are common property we should make the school house and everything about it attrac tive and beautiful says the Los An geles Times Here is one of the cen ters of the life of the community the one in which is gathered its most im pressionable element The school is supported at public expense in order to make good American citizens It aims at securing tile highest possible development of mind and character Every element of order neatness and beauty every broadening influence ev 4 cry appeal to the finer nature of the rchild means better men and women 1and a more thrifty prosperous and attractive community Americans are T Justly proud of their school system and should be wining to support the schools not only with money but with time and labor There is still much indifference on the part of the public regarding the planting of school grounds both in cities and in the country also much of that done is not carried out in an Intelligent manner It Involves more than the mere planting of trees in any old place and in any manner Each tree should be planted where it will form part of the picture not for itself alone in school yards possibly never for individual effect Each one theAeach must be depended on for only this onehundredth part of the perma nent effect Nearly every planter more especially a group of planters may be heard exclaiming This tree will look well here meaning that in f the position indicated It would look conspicuous the poorest possible reason for planting It there In addition to quiet and unassuming position each dugIo proper ment without too much resistance from the surrounding and underlying soil When planted each tree must be most thoroughly watered for the first watering Is more important than any to follow If the work is done as here suggested we will soon have more beautiful school yards rPLANTING HEDGES How and When to Set Out Plants For I Improvement Purposes Well kept and neatly trimmed hedges add greatly to the attractive of private grounds or public Pafloss and thus improve the appear of towns f Winter is a good time to set out a t hedge as most of the plants used are hardy many varieties evergreen Cal ifornia privet will be selected in most cases but the flowering Ledges of Ja panese quince Rosa rugosa and Ber beris thunbergU are growing in favor For an evergreen hedge there are few quicker growers or more thor oughly hardy than the Siberian arbor Vitae though the American arbor vitae is cheaper In transplanting hedge plants especially evergreens do not expose the roots to the sun says the Chicago In jvter Ocean Setting out wilted plants is the cause of many failures Unless the heads of evergreens are too large F for the root growth they need not be cut back when first planted The only way to have a good hedge P is to head it in from the start to pro duce a thief bottom growth It may V seem slow at first but the final re I i suits are better IIn setting out a hedge the small should be put about eight inches apart and the larger ones from ten inches to a foot Protecting Natural Landscapes Improvement work of a permanent and satisfying nature can only be accomplished by following a well defined qtthedistrict Land contours should be pre served no matter how rugged There is too much of scraping off hillocks to fill hollows especially in building small town parks Outcropping rocks L frequently are blasted to pieces so they may be removed Trees and shrubs perfectly at home In good health and looking their best in natu ral aspect are rooted out to make room for some pampered exotic because the former are not just where those in charge think they should be or because some one fancies they are too it common Thus Is nature marred and cmoney uselessly expended F Small Street Trees E Street trees from six inches to a foot high are too small to plant out In a kTpermanent position and It will be found costly In most situations to start with a tree of such small size The larger size mentioned Is plenty small enough anC then should be used only In case of rapid growTnc trees planted in the spring so that they may- a quickly reach a size where they may be more easily protected andalso become effective or worth while Trees six inches tall are too for street use and should never hir planted in 1 any public place MOVE ONBILLBOARDS t How Hartford Conrt Expects to Regulate Their Use LOCAL SOCIETIES FEDERATED Individual Organizations Are Divided Into Three Groups Careful Study to Be Made of Billboard Advertising The Projects Sociological Aspect It is not very often that a movement against billboards which spoil the attractiveness of towns assumes a so- ciologIcal aspect Aesthetic motives usually get the credit There are ex ceptions however notably in Spring field and Holyoke Mass where local authorities prevent the posting of any advertisements which are in any sense lewd or vulgar or which depict any crime or act of violence In Spring field In particular this ordinance has beenquite rigidly enforced by the city marshal A new turn to the movement is given however by the or ganization of the United Committees Association For Billboard Regulation In Hartford Conn says Charities and the Commons Hartford hard conduct ed various unsuccessful campaigns against billboards particularly with reference to the features which seem ed to be injurious to young people but without any marked success Coming tp the conclusion that it was a cam paign really worth while and here is the significant point about twenty five local organizations federated themselves into this association which they expect to maintain permanently as long as there is any work to do The scope of the movement Is most interesting when one notes the three groups into which the individual organizations are divided and the rela tive number of organizations in each First Moral and educational interests Federation of Churches Hartford Christian Endeavor union W C T U BnptIstleagueWomans School association Unity club Get Together club College club Current Topics club Motherhood club Neighborhood club- SecondBusiness and civic interests Board of trade Business Mens associ ation Manufacturers Association of Hartford County Landlords and Tax payers association Civic club Consum ers League of Connecticut D A II Phoenix Mutual clu- bThirdArtIstic interests Arts and Crafts club Municipal Art Society of Hartford Connecticut League of Art StudentsFurther significance Is added to the movement by the statement of representatives of thp association that a careful study is tobcr made of bill board advertising with a view to inter fering in no way with what Is seemly and appropriate and rigidly opposing everything else To begin with all pictorial representations will the associa tion hopes be ultimately excluded leaving notMng but text on the boards This is favored by the first group abovp mentioned because of the im moral tendencies of many f the pic- tureS and by the third group because of the inartistic nature of these pictures In prosecuting this movement one of the first steps of the association was the appointment of a special committee to introduce a resolution into the city council instructing the city engineer to make an enumeration of all billboards in the city This was passed and the power given covered location owner of land size of slgn height of bottom above ground owner of sign character of advertising con ditions of supports and relation to street building line The report which was rendered proved a revelation There are 255 billboards with a total area of 102530 square feet The largest board con thins 18340 square feet Many boards are over the building line some of them quite a distance and this at once gives the association opportuni ty for action The association in the prosecution of its pans expects to organize subcommittees as follows Ex ecutive local and legislative finance publicity and printing exhibit or photographic committee information and data committee Such movements will very soon show advertisers that their method of appealing to the people through the use of billboards fails in one essential point and that is in meeting the peoples approbation Improvement Works Chief Requisite Enthusiasm of such vitality that it spreads in all directions is the chief requisite in all civic Improvement work and where it is in evidence en ergy Is never lacking A few deter mined workers can accomplish wonders in a small place but seem to be powerless in large cities In the latter the chief problem seems to be the proper handling of the stock of enthu siasm and because of lack of proper direction many cities manifest no de sire for civic beauty How to plant the streets of a large city that has none or comparatively few appears one of the hardest nuts to crack To Tax Billboards The department of nuisances an unpleasantly named but useful branch of the American Civic association seems under the chairmanship of Harlan P Kelsey of Boston to be one of the most efficient sections At all events the de partment has brought put a pamphlet which is well prepared on the billboard question It goes into the van ous aspects of the subject tells what has been done in this and other coun trIes and recommends regulation by Ir J The Subalterns Retort When Sir Ian Hamilton was in South Africa as chief of staff to Lord Kitcheier he had occasion to visit rath er a large

Asst Cashier u Origin of Old Glory In the reminiscences of Lord Ronald Gower is found a story of the origin of the stars and stripes The stir spangled banner of the American republic had its origin

of St George and St Andrew on a blue ground in the corner In 1777 the crosses were replaced by stars as thfe Declaration of Indejjeudeuce rendered the retention of the English element unnecessary and inconvenient In thus adopting the of his hncestors as his own distinctive badge Washington no doubt intended the flag merely as a private signal for his own personal fol lowing but was at once adopted
