"The consumntive microbe can
never live in the open air, for it a

FOR ACCEPING REBATES
Speedy Action by Fe'deral Grand
Jury in Chicago.
LAKE SHORE ROAD INVOLVED
Oil Company if Convicted May Be
Mulcted in $380,000 Fines
More Indictments Expected
'Evidence Taken in Cleveland.
Chicago.-After an investigation
lasting just three hours and a half
the Standard Oil Company was in
dicted by the special Federal Grand
Jury on the charge of accepting re
bates from the Lake Shore and Mich
igan Southern Railroad. There are
nineteen counts in the indictment,
and the penalty, if conviction follows,
may be $20,000 r-- each count, or a
total of $380,000 in fines, while the
total amount of rebates received is
the comparatively insignificant sum
No Individuals were indicted,
neither was the railroad company
that gave the rebates, but the Grand
Jury has not completed its work yet,
and this first indictment is expected
to be followed by a long list of others.
It is said to be not improbable that
officials of the Lake Shore Railroad
and the Standard Oil Company will
be indicted. There is some question
whether indictments may not be re
turned against Captain G. J. Gram
mer, Vice-President of the New York
Central lines, the man who is respon
sible for the acts of the freight de
partment 6f the Lake Shore road.
The inquiry will turn upon the
question of whether the Standard Oil
Company entered into a conspiracy
with some of the railroads to ob',ain
secret and discriminating rates in re
straint of trade and whether the
Standard Oil Company and its sub
sidiary companies do not constitute
The reason why the jury was able
to return an indictment within so
short a time was that all the testi
mony had previously been taken at
Cleveland, and it was necessary only
to read to the jurors the transcript
of the evidence in the presence of the
witnesses who had given it. It was
not even necessary to call all the men
who had been summoned, and in fact
the only witnesses who were called
were J. L. Clark, General W'estern
Freight Agent of the Lake Shore; C.
A. Slauson, General Freight Agent at
Cleveland; Henry L. Meyer, clerk in
the Freight Auditor's office, and Geo.
T. Roberts, of the Inter-State Com
The indictment alleges that by the
system of granting the Standard Oil
Company rebates or concessions, that
corporation benented to the extent of
$?500 between August, 1903, and
February, 1905. Each count sets up
a rebate of between $300 and $500
a month which the Standard Oil Com
pany received by reason of the fact
that the Lake Shore Railroad Com
pany did not enforce from it the pay
ment of storage charges on its prod
ucts at the warehouse of the railroad

HEE USES TO 00 TO ASYRU1M
Miss Calhoun, of Augusta, Ga.,
Bullet Pierces a Tin Picture of the
Man She Loved Placed Over Her
Augusta, Ga.-Rather than go to
an insane asylum, where her relatives
sought to send her, Miss Ida Calhoun,
eighteen years old, a niece of the
Rev. C. M. Wilkinson, a prominent
Baptist clergyman of this city, fired a
bullet into her breast. The mortal
shot was fired just as a lunacy com
mission, which had been appointed to
decide the question of the girl's san
ity, came to the conclusion that she
should be committed to Dr. Mc
The girl killed herself under pe
culiar circumstances. She escaped
the vigilance of her nurse, who had
been engaged to watch her, and,
rushing to the West View Cemetery,
she stood on the grave of her mother.
Then she took the photograph of the
man with whom she was in love from
the folds of her skirt, and, placing
the picture against her breast, fired a
bullet through it and died instantly.
Miss Calhoun was a member of one
of the most prominent families in
this part of the State. She inherited
more than $100,000 fromhermother,
and she lived most of the time with
her uncle. The death of the mother,
however, seemed to have affected the
girl's mind. She became melancholy
and her relatives asserted also that
she was suffering from hallucina
tions. They suggested to her that
she go to a quiet retreat where she
would receive medical attention, but
Miss Calhoun refused.
When it became apparent to the
relatives that the girl's condition was
becoming worse, they applied for a
lunacy commission, which was ap
pointed. The girl resented the ap
pointment of the commission, and
refused to appear before the com
missioners. The men who were ap
pointed to determine Miss Calhoun's
mental condition resolved to have a
talk with her and they went to her
house. Miss Calhoun was compelled
to dress and appear before the com
missioners. who questioned her about
an hour. She was told that she could
retire, but instead of going to bed,
the girl slipped out of the house and
went to the cemetery.
Not knowing that the girl had
lied, the commissioners' considered
the evidence they had taken and
Elnally concluded that Miss Calhoun
was insane and that she should be
ent to an asylum. One of the girl's
relatives went. up to Miss Calhoun's
room after the commissioners left the
ouse, but found that she had gone.
The house was searched in vain.
Che police were informed of Miss Cal
ioun's escape and a search was made.
N'o trace of her was obtained until
ne of the caretakers in the cemetery
sent word to the police that a girl
had committed suicide on a grave.
[t was found that Miss Calhoun had
killed herself on the grave- of her

the winter so as to keep them grow
Ing and in- good condition and put
them or. grass for two or three
months and finish them in June or
JuLy, while the.. pastures are still
good and the cattle' can *be fattened
with a minimum amount of grain.
This saves the pastures during the
hot, dry weather of summer, which
Is a matter worth considering. Of
course, cattle can generally. be
finished cheaper on grass than in. the
stall. The season has a niatefial in-.
fluence and the price of land is also
an important factor. In sections of
the country'where hay is high priced
meadows can often be used for hay
production to advantage. One ac
quainted with local conditions can
figure out these matters and deter
mine the liest policy to pursue.
Blue grass and:clover. make an
ideal pasture. If the land Is-rich one
should make as much as 300 to 400
pounds of gain on good, growthy
heifers dluring- the grazing season.
To do this you need to reserve one
to three acres of land for each ani-.
mal. Wien you figure up the rent
or taxes on this land and its value if
allowed to produce hay it will not be
hard to tell whether it Is better to
finish the heifers with the feed you
have or carry them over the summer.
If you feed them this winter you
should be able to m'ake 'them grow
right along with,plenty of cowpea
hay and corn and cob meal mixed
with cottonseed meal, gluten meal or
]insegi meal. Mix.the feedsin equal
parts. It you have some shredded
stover or other dry roughness, feed
as much of It as they- will -consume
along with ten to fifteen pounds of
cowpea hay. Cattle fed on dry foods
should take to grass kindly, and it
will not be necessary to, feed them
much if any grain when the early
sap gets out of the grass. .Cattle fed
as suggested should put on a good
deal of flesh and not so; much fat,
and should be in idea! condition to
take on "sap," as the saying is, when
turned on grass and finish off rapid

all they will eat of this mixture, and
you can thereby save a little on the

hay contai'ns quite a high per cent.

the cow with one'of the necessary
elements of nutrition, in a .cheaper

You speak of the igea1 you are
ow giving as one-half gallon of chop
with the shorts left in. I am at a
loss to know what you mean by this.
Chop may be made up of a great va
rIety of things. If you mean bran
and middlings, for instance, you are
only giving the cow a little over one
and a halt pounds of grain at a feed.
This is a very little ration for cows
g'iving the amount of milk men
tioned. It is much better to feed
animels by weight. or at least to
have a measure-with marks aloon
the sides so you can tell at a glance
when you are giving a pound of a
given foodstuff. A measture of this
kind can be purchased for a few
cents, and some streaks of red paint

along the outside will enable you to
know just what you are feeding ia
the way of meal. FoodstUl vary
greatly in weight. For instance,. a
quart of wheat bran weighs about
one-fbalf pound, and a quart offt'b6
tonseed meal one and a half pounds.
Thus, if you were to feed one-half
gallon of cottonseed meal you would
be giving three pounds; 'on the other
hand you would be only giving, one
pound of bran. To feed intelligently,
therefore, one must get down to the
weights and measures. I am aware
that. many people .hink that using
weights a is "abcIe eentifimen,
but If they will stop and think a: lit
tle they will see that'i, ls- the only
basis by which youCdah: taiuge 'what
you are. doing. Make a mixture by
weight of- one-third cottonseed metl
and two-third wheat bran, or, better
still, if you can get some corn and
cob meal make a mixture of equal
parts. This ration may be fed to
