In a recent talk with the scriiie, Man
ager liartlutt of the forestry station
states that the trees arc in excellent con

of locust trees, -1 feet in height, the seed
from which they were grown being
planted April 20th. He has at the stat
ion, trees larger than even these, yet
of the same age. Mr. Bartlett has
been growing trees for 20 years and no
man in the state understands the busi
ness better, if as well. The Dodge City
station, under his management, has pro
duced many more trees than the Ogallah
station. Like many other institutions
the Forestry stations arc under the man
agement of a commissioner who docs not
understand tree growing, and who ham
pers the superintendants in their word.
Wc believe that if Supt. Bartlett was
given more liberty in his work, he could
accomplish still greater results. As it is
he has done splendid work for the tree
growers ot the state, and wc hope and
believe that his valuable services will be
retained. Certainly he will if merit and
the forestry interests have any weight.

A SAXUTATttT 17ESSON-.
There was tried m I he court room on
list Tuesday, before Judge Berry, a. case
that ought and probably will stand be
fore a certain clas3 or people in Ford
county, as a warning to not seek recourse
in the law for every fancied
that niaj' ome to them
The case was the state vs. Robert Ri
denour, Miss Raines and the Misses
Wray, all of Royal township, the prose
cutiug witness being A. Griffith. The I
charge preferred was creating sx disturb- i
ancc at a religious service.
The 'acts in the matter were that two
interlopers, named Cook, man and wife
respectively, have been holding & Tevival
meeting at the Ridenour school bouse in
Royal township, for the past month or
more, cook and his wire both, preach,
claiming to belong to the Free Methodist
denomination, though their methods of
stirring the moral side of the depraved
smacks much of Salvation Army tactics.
Indeed Brother Cook's cosmopolitan
character docs not allow him to scruple
at the manner so the end is attained. Xo
later than n year ago, tads exponent of
the old orthodox belief in an old fashioa
ioned devil, with horns and tail, presid
ing over a lake of burning brimstone,
exhorted the pedestrians of Dodge City
to once more get their souls out of his
Satanic Majesty's grasp, from, a dry
goods box on the postofiJce. cor,n.cr. Re
cruits did not flock to his stamfard in
pronortion to tho wind expended, and he
silcutly folded his tent and stole away to
crcener fields and pastures new.
Many of the good people of Ridenour
honored Cook and iis consort with their
presence until his language became so
personal and abusive that all but a very
few refrained from attending. Then
some of Cook's followers went forth and
invited them to come again, giving them
to understand that another man would
preach. The defendants named above,
together with Amos Raines went there
on the evening of November 3th. Cook
had on previous occasions, made a point
of hurling his most terrorizing "hell-fire
and brimstone" in the words of one of
the witnesses, at these young people and
had been personal in his remarks to the
last degree. On this occasion Mrs. Cook
was depicting the agony of the souls
that were sizzling in the eternal fires of
perdition, while Cook laying aside his
Christain forbearance, proceeded to keep
his eye on the audience, and sternly re
buked even the winking of an eyelid.
Cook began praying after the sermon,
and in his supplication called forth the
names of the defendants, making a per
sonal reference to each. They arose and
left the building, and Cook promptly
followed them, and continued his extra
ordinary exhortations, laying his hands
on Amos Raines, who then slapped him
in the face. This was the extent of the
"beating" that a Ford county exchange
The prosecution made a motion to dis
miss the case, but the defendants refused
and the court ordered the trial to pro
ceed. From the evidence of the prosecution,
any jury in the land would have acquitt
ed the defendants, as it was clearly
shown that there was not what could be
called a disturbance at any time, even by
the wildest stretch of the imagination.
While all the witnesses for the state
testified that they heard whispering,
none could distinguish what was said,
though two or three sat in the scat im
mediately in front of them. Another
testified that he saw notes passed, but
the cross examination developed the fact
that the witness had himself written the
first one. Others testified that they
saw the defendants laugh, but no one
swore they heard with one exception.
Rev. Cook swore that he saw them wink
but reluctantly admitted that he could
not hear the noise made by the meeting
of the cyelics. Mrs. Cook swore that
her spouse did not use the defendants
name in his prayer, while Cook swore
that he had and so on ad naseum.
Counsel for the defense, Messrs. Hen
dricks and Whitelaw, might have given
the case to the jury at this point, but as
Judge Whitelaw told the jury, "the
young ladies would never have as gcod
an opportunity again to talk to the peo
ple of Ford count-, and add to the gen
eral rout, so the defendants each testi
fied, telling substantially the same story
they went there in the same spirit
that they would attend any religious ser
vices, and not for the purpose of crea
ting a disturbance. They passed com
ments regarding election returns, smiled
at the result, and that was all. Their
evidence showed that Rev. Cook tramp
led under, if he ever possessed every feel
ing that should animate a man profess
ing his high calling, that he had been
offensively personal, and had taken ad
vantage of his position to put them in a
false light. The case was given to the
jury at 3.30 but one juryman, a hungry
editor like ourselves, held the jury until
supper time, but after tbey had dined
promptly returned a verdict of "not guil
ty" and threw the costs of the case on to
the prosecuting witness. They will foot
up some $133. Applause greeted the
A charge of assault had been preferred
against Amos Raines but it never came to
trial being dismissed.
The defendants in the case arc among
the best people in the county, being
highly esteemed and respected wherever
known, and that they were o quickly
vindicated, while a matter of congratula
tion, excites no surprise.
In the evening the young people at
tended the club dance, where they made
many new friends and acquaintances.

nothing in the world expected of them

Fish And Leprosy.
Jonathan Hutchinson, writing in the
Friends1 Quarterly Examiner, makes a
strenuous effort to prove that leprosy
;is,.caused by a constant fish diet and
that it is not contagious. He calls at
tention to the fact that at the present
dav iu England there are only a few
imported cases, and no special precau
tions arc taken against contagion; yet
the disease never spreads.
The United States has remarkable
immunity from the disease, and this in
spite of the fact that emigration from
the leprosy districts of Xorway to the
States has been very free. Noting the
parts of the "lobe where leprosy is still
indigenous Mr. Hutchinson points out
that these arc cither on the scacoust or
in proximity to rivers or lakes, while
the climatic or raical conditions are ex
tremely varied. He considers the evi
dence certain that the poison producing
the disease gains access to the body in
the form of food, and that this must be
through "lish," including "edible mol
luscs, crustaceans, and all living den
izens of water, both salt and fresh.
"It may be," ho adds, "that the
poison is wholly absent from lish under
most conditions, aud present only
under exceptional ones. It seems very
probable that fish caught in the warm
waters of the tropics arc more danger
ous thau those from northern seas, and
that all kinds of preserved or salted
fish, or lish iu a state of partial decom
position, are more risky thau that which
is fresh aud sound. Lastly, it is possi
ble tint raw lish may contain a poison
which m destroyed by cooking."
