Demonstration by the Brackett
Smudge Heater Co.
Atlantic City lights! Pittsburg
smoke! One would have thought
he had struck this mixture if he had
landed a* the San Mateo depot Wed-
nesday evening when the Brackett
Smudge Heater Co., gave a demon-
stration of their smudge pots.
By 8 p. m., their demonstrator,
Mr. W. L. Lewis, had placed some
68 potI on about one acre of Mr. H.
M. Flagler's grove by the depot here,
each pot holding three gallons of the
crude oil, costing 2.c per gallon. f.
o. b. Tampa. The pots cost 45 cents
each. Mr. Lewis was timed in light-
ing up. It took him, with a patent
gasoline can in one hand and a torch
In the other, just five minutes to
light every pot, and the ease with
which he did it showed plainly that
only one man would be needed to
care for the pots, after they were lit,
on at least a ten-acre grove.
The pots were lighted at 8 o'clock
and burned all night, some coontinu-
ing to burn until 8 a. m. The pots
or pans have a sliding cover by
which the amount of heat or oil con-
sumption may be regulated. Clos-
ing the cover tight extinguishes the
fire, saving fuel, when the mercury
takes an upward turn as it does
sometiines.
Temperatures were taken. The
mercury outside was 72 deg., and in
just eight minutes it was raised 8
degs. In the fire area. While iner-
cury outside dropped 6 degs., it
maintained a temperature of 80 in-
side, with pots one-third open.
With a little breeze blowing the con-
tinuous smoke coming from the pots
covered the tree tops like a cloud.
Tests were made to see how long the
oil would last with the pots open at
three different points. Three pots
were filled and lighted about 9 p. m.
but one of the gentlemen of the col-
ored variety along about 4 a. m.,
though they were not wanted any
longer and put them out. The Brack-
ott people claim they will run 8 to 14


hours. After seeing the (demlimonstra-
tion we believe there is no quentioni
hut that the pots and oil will put
wood flies out of bIsiiness for front
protection where the oil can be had
at a reasonable price.
A special Pullman was run down
from Jacksonville, arriving about 6
o'clock and an engine came in the
morning for their car in time to con-
nect with the 6:28 at East Palatka.
In the party aboard the private car
were Messrs. J. E. Itngraham, Vice-
Pres., F. E. C. Ry.; I. H. Barnett,
President Barnett National Bank, of
Jacksonville, and an orange grower;
E. R. Brackett, of the E. R. Brack-
ett Co., New York; Gen. C. P. Lov-
ell, of the Brackett Smudge Heater
Co.; E. 0. Painter, "Time-Tried and
Crop-Tested ;" A. J. Nye, grower
and packer, St. Petersburg and Or-
lando; L. S. Scroble, of the Clvde
Line; S. 0. Chase., of Chase & Co.,
a nd a gentiileian from Leesburg,
whose name we failed to get.
This party and a number of Sani
Mateo growers wete interested spec-
tators of the demonstration, andl
what they saw caused the Brackett
Company to book orders for several
thousand pots before morning.
While tlhe Brackett Co., are advo-
cating the juse of tO pots to the acre
it seemed to be the idea of growers
here who have fired groves for a
number of years with wood, coke.
etc., that more of them should be oni
hand and ready in case they were
needed.
Another point they claim i that
they can ('ichage the temperature.
easier 10 dtgreen in cold weather
than In warm. When mercury gets
down about 20 with wind blowlug a
gale it taken ome fires we know to
change -mierc-ry 10 degrees and we
are from Missourl on thills polit.

Mr. and Mrs. T. F. Andrews, of
Chicago, were here a day or two the
first of the week. They were guests
of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Crosby and left
for an easy round of the state before,
returning to Chicago.

The co-operative marketing of
farm products is not hs well devel-
oped in the United States as it Is
in, Europe or Canada.
Our lag in this respect is probably
due to the abounding optimism of our
fourth-reader literature, which as
sures every boy of his opportunity
to become the owner of a great cornM
mercial enterprise. Obviously the
lad with commercial ambitions will
not aspire to be the hireling of a lot
of farmers if he has faith in his
chance to market the farmer's prod-
ucts and own the business himself.
Notwithstanding the handicap of
American ideals and psychology,
farm. co-operation is successfully at
work In this country on a larger
scale than most of us realize.
One of the oldest and best estabu
lished examples of such co-operative
marketing is that of the citrus fruit
trade of California. There are sev-
eral associations engaged in handling
the California fruit crop. The most
important of these is the California
Fruit Growers' Exchange, which han-
dles over half the orange crop-a
volume of business anfounting to
nearly twenty million dollars a year.
The Fruit Growers' Exchange su-
pervises the packing, grading and
branding in thie home country, the
shipping throughout the United
States, and, with representatives at
all leading markets, the sale to pr6-
vate Jobbers at the points of con-
sumption.
Thus the single organization own-
ed by the producers performs the
functions which, with non-oo-opera-
tive marketing, as In the case of the
dpoultry prodetao, pressts thee
distinct mid4le'-ei anely, *e
country grocer, the produce shipper
and the city commission man.
The expense of marketing oranges
co-operatively, excluding transporta-
tion, is 7 cents a crate. The Ex.-
change claims a saving of 80 cents a
crate over the methods previously In
vogue.
The source of this large economy
is not only in the elimination of for-
meW profits, but of former wastes.
Oranges are readily perishable; more'
over, they are a product with whide
the consumer's appetite is soon cloy-
ed.
Under the Individual system of dis.
tribution a reported raise in the quo-
tations of a particular market memft
a rush of fruit, a glut, and oranges
forced upon a satiated public at
prices below the cost of production.
On the 'other hand, a local famine
meant exorbitant prices to consumers
and a scoop for Jobbers and retail-
ers, without a corresponding increase
nla the returns to the producer.
The hange, by code telegraphy,
keeps in constant touends with every
masrkat In the country and every catr
of fruit en route. If the Ohlesicago
market shows stagnation, a portion of
the Chicago-bound truit Is switched
at Kansas City sad seat to St. Louis
or routed on through to Cleveland.
la addition to the 60 csate a crate


saved directly, the Dachangs claims
a 80-cent redution in the profits of
city jobber and retailer. Thee deal-
era are now willing to work with a
smaller smsargian because of an asi
sued regular supply of sound fruit,
which, under the combined educative
ianflueoes of the Exchange ad the
U e Stats Department of Agrl.

Government Carrie Entry of U"S ef

United Statesa Treasurer Lee 46o.
Clamg has given former United State
Treasurer Charles H. Treat a renatpt
for $1,260,18496.88 -84, the amout
of money that belongs to the goverir
meat, and whi changed c atodians.
What's the two-hirds of a ent for.
and bow did it get there?
It Isn't to be found among the
colns and bills. But under the bea&d
Ins of "bonds and other securities
held in trust" the two-thiurd of a
cent bobs up, for there it Is Ina the
total, $785,CM6,032.92 2. Go3og la ti
the items of thuis particular ount,
it is again to be found among the
state bonds In which the government,
.many years ago, Invested Indla"
trust funds. Proceeding further, it
is learned that the bonds of the state
of Tennessee, acquired from these
funds, aggregate $335,666.66 2-3. The
bookkeeping entries go no further in'
the process of elimination, but the
vaults that hold the bonds in question
carry the reader to the last chapter.
For one of these Tenner-veo ttate
bonds is of the amount of $1,6C6.G0
2-3.
"Why there should be any fraction
of a cent in this connection," haid
Treasurer MoClung. "I do not know,
unless for some reason It was neces-
sary to make out the bond for two.
thirds of two thousand exactly, which
would account for it" Althou
these Indian trust fund bonds are
carried in the bookkeeping acooato
at their face value, Treasurer MWe
Clung would probably listen attentl*'W
ly to any one who wanted to s-
a boa ide offer for them. Wa
in the thirtils, whea gp
-a good deal of moy tn
certain Indian tribes, be bv e
the money. Large sums were adtao 4
ed to a number of states, which If
sued their bonds for the amounts.
But they did not settle with the
government, it being considered good
form in those days for a state to
beat the government if it could. The
government's faith was pledged to
the Indians and the score with the
Indians has been settled long ago.
But as far as several of the states
are concerned, the government to
still holding the bag, to the extet
of $336,60.- 2-3 in the case of Ten-
nessee. There tas been some talk
of a compromise, however, and the

MARSHMALLOW FUDGE.
If your marshmallows get a little
stale before using, try making marsh-
mallow fudge. Put two cups gran*-
lated sugar and one cup milk In a
saucepan and let the mixture come
to a boll. Add one square and a half
chocolate, grated, and two tablespoon-
fuls butter. Cook about ten minutes,
then remove from the fire and beat
until the fudge gets rather stiff, but
not so stiff that it will not pour
easily. Break marshmallows into sev-
eral pieces, place in the bottom of a
dish and pour the fudge over them.-

Oil marks from wall paper may be
removed by applying a paste of cold
water and pipe clap. ,Leave It on ov-
or night and brush off in the morn-
ing.
M!Itew may be renwmved by moist-
ening the sipot with clean water; rub
on it a thick coating of na-tile soap
mixed with scraping of chalk. Rub
with the end of finger and then wash
off.
To remove grease from silk take a
lump of magnesia and rub It wet on
the spot, let dry and then brush off.
To wash silk lamp or electric light
shades make a nice lather with warm
water and soap, and well sh:,k, stut
in water. When the dirt is out, rinse
well in clear cold water and hang In
the open air to dry. When nearly
dry, press the frills and lace with
fairly hot Iron, when shades will look
almost equal to new.
Take 1-2 cup of salt, dampen and
sprinkle on carpet or rug. The dust
will adhere to the salt and the carpet
will be brighter.
A little vinegar mixed with cake
frosting will keep it from becoming
too grainy and will make it smooth.
It improves the frosting by killing
the oversweet taste as well.
Empty feathers from corner of tick,
ripped, into four or five squares of
cheese cloth or thin cotton, make
warm suds, wash well the filled cloths
of feathers and rinse well; dry In
open air (spring time best), not In
sun; wash tick, replace feathers.
It Is a good idea to keep a dozen
or so cheese cloth pillow cases in the
linen closet. After being used in a
contagious disease they may bt! burn-
ed.
Remove and wash cover of a dis-
carded mattress and slip cover over
a good mattress and sew up the op-

new cloth, but saves the labor of mak-
ing new cover and looks very tidy.
To cure a soft corn between the
toes, keep powdered obalk on it un-

school crayon chalk.
Put a piece of old-fashioned brown

The head of an Indoor business

Tamp, Fla.--The most encouraging
movement in the way of developing
the resources of Florida that has ever
been undertaken is the farming moOve
ment which has recently gathered
much headway. In every paper print-
ed In the state are contained Items
showing the awakening of the farm-
ing population to be universal, and as
well that thousands of men from oth-
or states are coming into this to de-
vote themselves to the tilling of the
soil. The result cannot but be bene-
ficial In every way and to a large
degree. It is true everywhere that
the quantity of products of the soil
and mines and forests make ana
mark the wealth and strength of a
state or any subdivision thereof.
Florida, properly cultivated, can pro-
duce a large surplus of those pro-
ducts of the soil which yield the larg-
est profits. It is especially true that
live stock can be produced here at
less cost than anywhere else, and It
follows that a greater profit must
ensue.
The demand for green and fresh
garden stuff in the winter season Is
almost unlimited, certainly, far be-
yond the ability of Florida to supply
were every acre in the frostprool
section laid under tribute. This div-
ision of farming alone, would bring
a yield that would make the people
of the whole state independently
wealthy were It divided among them.
Above what may be termed the frost
Iine might be and will be raised many
staples which will amply repay indus
try and attention. Poultry is In un-
limited demand and at good pries.
This state is especas we d I
to its raising and s ear nouh to
a ready market to give employment
to a hundred thousand people On
this particular point It may be said
that whenever any Industry is devel-'
oped to -an extent that competition
is created and begins to be seriously
felt, as is sometimes the case, those
localities which possess te most ad-
vantages and fewest drawbacks can
continue successful, while those less
favored drop out of the game. Flori-
da would win against ,the world in
the production of poultry and eggs,
and could make money at it under
conditions that would drive other
states out of the contest.
The revival of interest in farming
in Florida comes most opportunely.
It will greatly increase the popua
tion, uplift the values of lands, up
build the towns sad citlee and give
business to existing railroads and
demonstrate the necessity of new
ones, and in every way prove a broad
and strong foundation for the wealth
and prosperity aad culture of thl
whole. Now is the time to give thTi
new departure the push tat will
send it along to complete and per-
manent success. All It needs is emrn
est and devoted industry and intelll-
gent direction.-Tampa Times.

POINTS FOR POlUI,TlWIMAN.
Chickens must have some kind of
Vreen food along with their grain and
meat food during the winter if many
Q MS are expected. Beef scraps,
VTeen out bone, blood meal or chop-
ped raw beef will take the place of
the bugs and worms they pick up dur-
ing the summer, but something must
also be provided to take th'% place
of the tender blades of grass 'picked
here and there. Grains are concen-
trated in themselves to ford the
'whole diet The starch in thmn be-
comes pasty and sticky after teacm-
ing moist and will not move along
easily through the fowl's pe'1llia'ly
formed alimentary canal unless there
Is some bulky substance mixcd with
the food. In fact, It requirCe very
much less food if bulky green foods
of some kind are fed regularly :1d,.
of course, they are much chenpert.
At first thought It would seem al-
most impossible to have a supply of
green food during the winter with-
-out great cost, but this need mot be
the case. There are several different
ways of supplying this part of .he ra-
tion. Apple parings and cabbage
leaves which would otherwise be
wasted in the kitchen can be '*ioped
up with a vegetable cutter i.0 pieces
small enough for the fowls tl, swal-
low, and they form an excello.it sub-
stitute for the grasses of aimmer.
Heads of cabbage may be hunl up in
the scratching shed so the foAls will
be required to jump for them. This
also provides exercise. Care should
be taken, though, not to feed too
.much cabbage, as it will taint the
eggs. If turnips are plentiflt they
may also be fed in this manner. In
the last few years alfalfa has been
placed upon the market in the form
jof a btlky meal for poultry. A quan-
ltyr of the meal is scalded with hot
Water the night before it lM used.
It turns as green as grass as soon
A it is scalded, but it should be left
covered tightly for several hours.
It should then be mixed with the
mash food to form about a fourth of
the quantity in bulk.
Pure, cleat clover hay Is equally
good chopped up and scalded and fed
In this manner or a bale t clover
bay may be left in some out-of-the-
way place for the fowls when it will
be found the leaves will all soon be
picked from the stems. Then the
bale may be torn apart. It will sur-
prise some to think of fowls eating
bay, but they will actually eat all the
leaves from the clover stems, so
much do they relish bulky food. The
cow beat or mangle wurzel forms a
very cheap and efficient green food
for poultry, but they can scarcely
ever be purchased on the market. If
you want a supply of green food for
your fowls next year sow a small
quantity of the seed along in July or
engage some farmer to grow some
for you. If you live in the suburbs
possibly there is a hot-house near
which ralees lettuse during the winter.
The waste leaves may be obtained at
small cost. Sprouted oats makes an-
other good form of green food for
winter use. The grain is fown thick-
ly in a sprouting box or tray and
kept at a moderate temperature un-
til the young plants reach a height of
two or three inches.

Bchuh, of Richmond, reported as hav-

SCALY L F.S.
The rough, unsightly scales on the
legs of fowls, causing them to swell,
are caused by a mite about one eight-
hundredth of an inch in length hur-
rowing beneath the scale that results
in lumpy crusts that are generally
hollow and contain a spongy-like mass
in the lower portion of which the
pests are found in all stages of do-
velopment. Wash the legs of the
diseased birds in luke-warm water

ed. Kerosene alone may blister the
legs and kerosene and lard are quite
likely to bleach the yellow lecs that
are so much to be desired in some
standard bred fowls and in all mar.
ket varieties.--Poultry Tribune.

GIVE CHill'KS ('CHARCOAL.
When chicks are fed mashes it Is
a great benefit to them to add a lit-
tle powdered charcoal to their food.
Have the mash moist enough so the
charcoal will stick. The chicks will
soon learn to like it and will eat
the mixture as readily as plain feed.
When they get older feed the char-
coal alone and see how they will eat
it. It Is a fine thing to keep them
healthy, for it is a great corrective,
preventing fermentation of food in
the crop, and for that reason is a
great aid in warding off bowel com.
plaint.-Poul' -y Tribune.

S('INC(' IN FEEDING.
Observation during the summer
months proves that fowls unrestrain.
ed seek a considerable part of their
food of a bulky nature-the tender
grasses and clover, the weed seeds
and scattered grains, the bugs, grass.
hoppers and insects. All goes to con
firm theo theory that high-priced
grains have been bcnefkiial in wid-
ening tho knowledge that vegetables
and clover lessens greatly the cost
of feeding fowls during winter
months.-Farmers' Home Journal.

INDIAN RUNNER DUCKS.
The Indian Runner luck was In-
troduced into tho United States about
12 years ago, and is a native of In-
dia where they have been bred for
years as gg prodil( ers.
They have a long narrow body, well
elevated in front, without any sign of
keel, but having a well rounded
breast. The neck is long and fine
and carried erect. The head and
bill have a decided wedge shape ap-
pearance, with keen eagle eyes set
high in the head.
Their wings are bred down to a
point, where they are so small they
cannot fly but are an aid to their
rapid movements.
The legs are long and set well back
on the body.
In color they are fawn and white,
with occasional darker markings on
head and tail of drake.
The standard weight for mature
drake is 4% pounds and for duck 4
pounds.
Their flesh is very fine in quality
and well flavored, their meat being
next in value to the celebrated Can-
vas Back duck that commands such
a high price for table use.
They mature very rapidly, reaching
market size in nine or ten weeks.
They do not consume near the
amount of feed the Pekin ducks do,
or the larger breeds of chickens. This
is another point very much in their
favor, as feed is getting to be quite
an item in poultry culture.
Their laying qualities place them
above any other breed of ducks or
chickens. They are well named when
called the Leghorn of the duck fam-
ily. They have been known to pro-
duce 240 to 250 eggs per year, but
with ordinary care and feed we would
be safe in placing their average at
175 to 190 eggs per year. Their eggs
are large and very rich and fine In
flavor, and they are in great demand
for tablo use and always bring a
higher price than hen's eggs.
Among other points in their favor
are the following: They have no
lice or other vermin, are not both-
ered by hawks, have no group, no
scabby legs, no frosted combs; there
are no roosts to spray,, and no roost-
ing in trees, nor flying over fences.
A two foot poultry fence will son-
fine them anywhere, which makes it
very convenient to step from yard to
yard, in caring for them.-A. F.
Shaw in the Indiana Farmer.

HOW TO HEELP THE HENS.
Of course, every farmer knows that
overfat -hens lay few or no eggs.
What is needed is a trial with some
big dry dust heaps in old square pi-
ano boxes, so these hens can goet Into
the dust and shake and shuffle. Hens
need and must have such "bathing."
In some old wagon beds with large
piles of hay, straw and ohaff on tna,

More of the Real Thing Wanted.
So a Cornell professor has demon-
strated that by feeding certain kinds
of dyes to hens the color of their
feathers may be changed as well as
the hue of the interior of their es.
What of it? This is not making two
blades of grass grow where there
was one before: What the humaM

made them, and at a less price, and
not freak yolks and feathers.-SprisU

Wasted a Fortune on Skin Trouble.
"I began to have an Itching over
my whole body about seven years ago
and this settled In my limb, from the
knee to the toes. I went to see a
great many physicians,a matter which
cost me a fortune, and after I noticed
that I did not get any relief that way.
I went for three years to the hospital.
But they were unable to help ume
there. I used all the medicines that
I could see, but hecame worse and
worse. I had an inflammation which
made me almost crazy with pain.
When I showed my foot to my friends
they would get really frightened. I
did not know what to do. I was so
sick and had become so nervous that
I positively lost all hope.
"I had seen the advertisement of
the Cuticura Remedies a great many
times, but could not make up my mind
to buy them, for I had already used so
many medicines. Finally I did decide
to use the Cuticura Remedies, and I
toll you that I was never so pleased as
when I noticed that, after having used
two sets of Cuticura Soap, Cuticura
Ointment and Cuticura Pills, the en-
tire inflammation had gone. I was
completely <(red. I should be only
too glad if people with similar disease
would come to me and find out the
truth. I would only recommend them
to use Cuticura. Mrs. IBertha Sachs,

MUST HAVE

HURT DREADFULLY

From the Letter Recently Re-
ceived from Mrs. E. Four-
nier, of Lake Oharles,
La., Her Buffering
Must Have Been
Dreadful.

Lake Charles, La.-"I had no cour-
age or patience left," writes Mrs. E.
Fournier, of this place, "as a result
of my great suffering.
"I had backache, headache, heart
palpitation, chills, fainting spells, sick
'etemach, nervousness, dragging sen-
Mations and thought every month I
; should die.
SNo.doctor could relieve me and the
|-., nth before I began to take Cardui,
Rl;` ult oMld hardly walk. I could not
wear my corset, and had a pain in my
right side.
"Since taking Cardui, I have no
more pain. I can walk as far as I want
and am feeling like a different wo-
man."
If you suffer from any of the symp-
toms described by Mrs. Fournier, you
are urged to take Cardui, for it should
surely do as much tor you as it has
done for her.
If you are weak and ailing, suffer
from lack of appetite, lack of blood,
lack of nervous vitality, Cardui is prob-
ably just what you need to help you
build up your physical and nervous
constitution.
It builds, strengthens, restores and
acts in every way as a specific, tonic
remedy, for womanly weakness.
See your druggist about it.

FACTS ABOUT NAPL1!B.
In Naples, a city of flowery Italy,
the girls and boys apend all of their
Uves out of doors, except when they
are sleeping. It seldom frees !in
Naples'even In their coldest winters,
so orange groves are always green
with shining leaves. There are so
many people In the large city of
Italy that many of the poor live ia
basements where there are often no
windows. Sometimes a whole fam-
fly will live in one room where there
is hardly any furniture. 'Some of the
poor of Naples live in high houses
In narrow streets. These dam-p
homes are so dark that the people
are glad to leave them In the morn-
ing to go out into the sunshine to
buy their breakfasts, which are go
cheap on streets that few of the'
poor people go to the expense of
having fires to cook their own meals.
Coffee, fried rice balls, potatoes,
beans, meet roll, doughnuts, abort-
cakes, fruits and vegetables are sold
so cheap that even a halt cent's
worth of most anything may be
bought.
When the milkman delivers the
milk at the house he takes the cow
or the goat along to milk t before
the eyes of the customers so that
they may see that the milk is not
watered. On wash days thirty or
forty women collect around large
tanks of water com in from some
fountain. There all wash the clothes
for their families on the same morn-
ing. No dou-bt they have very socia-
ble times, but the linen even aft-r
being washed is the color of the
stones and not very much clean;.r.
One of the most interesting places in
this city of Naples is the Aquarium,
whichh is the finest and most inter-
esting in the world. When the lit-
tle children look into the great glass
cases of water for the first time
they think they see beautiful flower*
but they really see little fishes and
water creatures darting here and
there,-Washington Star.

t AteMpl1ece of mechanism. There never was a car so simple and a car that offered so much for the money. Two years ago when the

i&41m for more. One car sold others and the others sold others until the demand became overwhelming. Qne factory grew to four. The great
L, NP-Toledo plant was purchased and doubled. Now, after only two years a daily output of 125 cars falls short of meeting the demands.
,a to ot due to advertising, but solely to the matchless cars themselves.


OVERLAND MODEL 38, PRICE $1,000 F. 0. B. FACTORY; 30O

The greatest advantage that the
Overland has lies In Its matchless
simplicity. Every part is so simple,
so automatic that the car is almost
"trouble proof." This model operates
by pedals alone; one foot pedal push-
es back for reverse, the same pedal
pushes up for low speed and another
pedal simply pushes up for high
speed. A 10-year-old child can mao-
ter the car in five minutes. A nov-
Ice can run it a thousand miles with-
out trouble. The car almost cares
for itself. The simplicity and its low
cost of up-kepe appeal to both experts
and amateurs. A woman 'can op-
erate it as easily as driving a horse.
This year, through reduced cost of
production, we are offering this car
for $1,000. It is a better car than
the first Overland that sold for $1,-
25). It is not like the undersized,
underpowered cars offered around this
price; but it is the first real automo-
bile sold for $1,000. This car with


four people has made marvelous rec-
ords in hill-climbing. It won the per-
fett score In the 10,000 mile non-stop
run. Think of what a test that was.


It is made in a factory long famous
for a $1,250 car made by the same
workmen under the same In-
spectors and so far as is desirable


in this lighter car, Is made of the
same materials. But it is made by
new machinery adapted to thin one
particular car.


. To pay more for a car Is sheer waste. To get less for your money is not shrewd. This car wherever known Is the car most desired. It
S,-b tairly captured the country. The car that has done that In spite of intense rivalry Is bound to win you when you know it.

A wave of excitement swept over the.

The old priest paused. There was

the great general, accompanied by his

Valao f Ignorance.
by Geen. Homer LTen.
NIII-II I THiR now nor In the future will International conflicts be e
termined by naval engagements. In some Instances naval vTc-
tories may produce conditionss that will tend to hasten the oa-
elusion of a war, but such a state of national weakness is prob.
lematical. Only those who overlook the natural laws goverti-
Ing international struggles fail to comprehend that victory or
defeat is relative to the power or weakness of a nation as a
whole.
To affect, to cripple, or to destroy a nation in warfare can only be done
by Injuring to that degree its power of government, its resources, and Its
ability to defend Itself against the enforcement of hostile demands. If the
entire German Navy were sunk in fhe, North Sea, England could get no near-
er Berlin than she is today, and the demands that she might then make upon
the German Empire could no more be enforced than at any time prior to the
destruction of that nation's navy. The multiplicity of the arteries of modern
trade and Interchange prevents the possibility of blockade.
If the entire American Navy should suddenly be destroyed in a storm or
war, It would have no effect whatsoever upon the government of the Repub-
lhe, upon its resources or power. As all Wars have been, so in the future will1
they be, determined by land warfare.
Naval engagements, being remote from a nation; affect it only as a sin-
gle battle. The number of men destroyed is, compared with the nation, In-
signflicant Neither the political constitution of thp country, nor means to
wage war, nor the belligerent attitude of the people is affected. When a na-
tion's navy is destroyed it Will then assume a land defence, and only subse-
quent to the defeat of its armies, the passing of its territory and resources
Into the hbnds of an enemy, will it consider surrender.
The navy is but a portion of the military forces of a nation, and was
originally composed of soldiers. In recent years it has the appearance of
being a separate institution, but to consider it as such is to mistake the es-
sential characteristics of warfare. A navy today is more dependent upon the
land forces of a nation than heretofore.
Navies are not self-sustaining in any degree whatsoever. Nothing that
Is necessary for their maintenance can be gotten by them out of the sea.
The vast theatre of war, where their campaigns are made and battles fought,
is as barren as the desert. In consequence, naval bases are as necessary n
fleets In every sea where nations have established or expect to extend their
Isuerainty.-Harper's Weekly,

Do Americans Hurry---

Or Merely Concentrate?
By 1-Irry Van Dyke.
1Hb high stimulation of will-power in America has had the ef-
feet of quickening the general pace'of life to a rate that always
asta I hes and sometimes annoys the European visitor. The
Imovement of things and people is rapid, Incess qt, bewildering.
T ere is a. rushing tide in the streets, a nervous tension in the
air. Buasies is transacted with swift despatch and close at,
S tmationu. 'ItU preliminary comilhnents and courtesies are elim.
M Whether you want to buy I paper of pius or a thousand shares of
stoek, t is dome quickly. I remember waiting an hour in the Ottoman Bank
at DamsMOU, once, to get a thousand francs on my letter of credit. The
pevite direetr gave me coffee and delightful talk. in New York, the trans-
action woul4 not have taken five minutes, 'but there would have been no
coffee nor conversation.
The American moves rapidly, but if you should infer from this that he is
always in a hurry, you would make a mistake. His fundamental philosophy
il that you must 'be quick sometimes if you do not wish to be 'hurried al-
ways. You must condense, you must eliminate, you must save time on the
little tHnga In order that you may have more time for the larger things.
He systematizes his correspondence, his office work, all the details of hisl
business, not for the sake of system, but for the sake of getting through with
his work. In his office hangs a printed motto, "This is my 'busy day." He
does not arrive at the railway station fifteen minutes before the departure of
his train. because he has something else that he would rather do with those
fifteen minutes. He does not like to spend an hour in the barber-shop, be-
cause he wishes to get out to his country-club in good time for a game of
golf and a shower bath afterward. He likes to have a full life, in which
one thing connects with another promptly and neatly, without unnecessary
intervals. His characteristic attitude is not that of a man in a hurry, but
that of a man concentrated on the thing in hand to save time.-American
Magaslne.

Slaughter by Hide Hunters Along the
Cocodrie Bayou.
Not long ago the assessor Con-
cordia parish wrote to the Times-
Democrat calling attention to the
wanton slaughter of deer in the tenth
ward of that parish during the pree-
eat season. According to the as-
sessor, J. D. Miller, the Cocodrte
swamp has for a number of weeks
been the scene of operations for a
large number of hunters who have
been killing deer for their hides.
This Cocodrie swamp, Mr. Miller
asserts, is the greatest natural deer
park in the .world, and he believes
that more than 500 deer have been
killed In that section during the
present season. Residents of the
ward are finding carcases .tripped
of their hides sad other crossee of
deer that have been wended md at*
iward died maU ovr te smi
The people o -aosfi pOib
naturally outraged at ftosi s
of hide hunters, who, however, de-
clare that they are protected by the
game laws, having paid the State li-
cense of $1. Yet the laws of Louis-
iana prohibit the slaughter of does
and fawns and limit the kill of the
individual hunter for the day and for
the season. If the destruction has
been anything like what is reported
these provisions must have been con-
stantly violated.
Information of this alleged destruc-
tion ought to have reached the State
Game Commission long before the
close of the season. If it was not
learned of at all events they have it
now, and this Information will un-
doubtedly cause the game authorities
to be on the alert for similar viola,
tions next season. If such destruo.
tion Is continued It can mean only
the exterminatlop of deer along the
Cocodrie Bayou, and It such Slaugh-
ter. takes plase in one swamp or
parish of Louisiana It may take Place
In a dosen others where deer are

To Stop Squeaking Shoes.

shoes. Why, tiptoe as I may, the
whole offic b forces knows when I en.
ter the building and the ofice clerks
hands me my mail without looking
up, I hate to throw them away, but
I can't stand the embarraVsment ."
"Take them to a shoemaker," ad-
vised a friend. "He will drive pegs
to between the soles and the uppers
and there is an end to the squak."

All-Metal Washboard.
An all-metal washboard of an Im-

vented by a New York man. The
two primary advantages of the board


are that it is very durable and that
It has no cracks or corners where
dirt may lodge.

metal beat around a rod whAch forms

of this metal washboard Is the ab-

An excellent demonstration of the
discipline enforced at the Western
Penitentiary was afforded recently,
notes the Pittsburg Dispatch, when
fire o*a discovered in a building In the
prison yard while the prisoners were
at services In the chapel. Remember-
Ing the Instinctive rush that follows
an alarm of fire anywhere among
those in the viciolty, and the fact that
these men were penned in the Institu-
tion and for a moment unaware of
whether they were threatened or no:,
the fact that they went on with the
service as itf othing had happened,
the prisoner at the piano playing un-
Interruptedly and the congregation
completing the hymn, won the admire,
ing approval of the warden when he
later addressed them. At the same
time It is laIn order to recognize the
admirable dlsdpline which the warden
and his staff malntpln and which was
so splendidly demonstrated under
such trying circumstances.

Toward Money.


.Henry Van Dyke. --
oII characotrrstic thin In the attitude of the Americans toward
money is this: not that they adore the dollar, but that they
admire the energy of the man who has made it. They coD-
aider the multi-millionaire much less as the possessor of an enor-
mous fortune, than as the successful leader of great enterprises
In the world of affairs, a master of the steel industry, the head
of a grvat railway system, the developer of the production of
oil, the organizer of large concerns which promote general prosperity.
represents to them achievement, force. courage, tireless will-power. A
who I vefy rich merely by inheritance, who has no manifest share in the
v itles of the country, has quite a different place In their attention. They
erttained, or perhaps shocked, by his expenditures, but they regard him
S tWy. It is the man who does things. and does them largely, in whom they
k, *: a serious interest. They are Inclined, perhaps, to pardon him for
t that ought not to be parJoned. because they feel so strongly the
S .ibratton of his potent will, his practical efficiency. It sl not the might of
"e dollar that mlpresses them, it is the might of the man who wins the dol.
S mag n atiicently by the develoirpent of American industry.
This, I assuir you, is the characteristic attitude of the typical American
S "o Ird wealth. It does not confer a social status' by itself in the United

he Farmers' Side.
By John. 4M Iennedy
HE problem of the high cost of living has been the cause of a
SIgreat deal of agitation and discussion for the last two months,
and mv1'ements have sprung trp urging that an exhaustive inves-
tigation be made in an effort to ascertain thed causes.
It requires but very little investigation to find the princi-
pal causes. One is because there are too many consumers for
the number of producers, and that the law of supply and de-

i laborers all over the country. The farms in the State of New York
-sdtily produce double the present yield if enough competent help
be secured to do the necessary work for any reasonable price.

Plague.


3By William Colby Rilcker.
NN hot day in te summer of 1903, a German blacksmith in the
comutry town at Pacheco, California, wanted a mess of ground-
squirrels tor his dinner. He banked his forge, hung up his
leather spron, took the old shotgun from its pegs on the wau
and had an excellent afternoon's sport in a near-by field. That
evening he feasted on fat, tender broiled squirrels. Three days
later he was taken violently ill-so ill, in fact, that the phy-
