death certificate gives the date of the
negro's birth as 1794. Calhoun lived
In Pensaeola for forty years, and un
til fourteen years ago made his living
by daily labor In a sawmill. In rem
iniscent moods the old negro, who had
friends among both white and black
people, would tell of Incidents in the
life of his former master, Calhoun, the
famous statesman, and refer to htm
with great familiarity. The negro was
born In slavery, he claimed. All his
assertions, It Is said, were well sup

Indicate a net revenue from the cor

000 annually and 122,000 corporations
probably will have to pay the tax.

RECLAMATION LAWS TO STAND
Senate Committee, After an Exhaus
tive Investigation, Decides There
Is No Reason for Charges.
Washington, D. C After a trip
of filly days, during which prac
tically all the government recla
mation projects were Inspected,
the senate committee on Irrigation has
come to the conclusion that It Is Im
practicable and impossible to make
any modification in the reclamation
act without the risk of losing many
advantages of the present law.
While the committee's report will
not be ready for same time, the ex
pressed opinion of the senators In the
Inspection trip was to that effect, ac
cording to Director F. H. Howell of
the reclamation service, who has re
turned from the trip with the commit
tee. The sentiment to expedite the work,
if necessary by the issue of bonds or
other interest-bearing obligations, is
unanimous In the committee, and the
senators are said to stand together on
the demand that every dollar that has
been spent by the government In the
work of reclamation must be refunded.
It is considered impossible to amend
the system for repayment already pro
vided in the law.

PERI8HE8 IN FLAMES TRYING
TO SAVE GRAND80N.
Home Catches Fire While Family Is
Asleep and Democratic Leaders'
Body Is Found With Boy
Clasped in His Arms.
Kansas City. It was In a vain effort
to save the life of his little grandson
that Congressman David A. DeArmonil
of the Sixth Missouri district, perish
ed in a fire that destroyed his home In '
Butler, Mo., early Tuesday.
The heroism of the congressman
was made known late Tuesday after
noon when, with his arms locked
around the burned body of the little
boy, DeArmond's body was found. He i
had caught up tho six-year old lad,
David A. DeArmond. Jr., and rushed
with him through the flames that filled
his room. He fell with his uncon- '
scious burden and both sank through ,
the floor to quick death.
What makes the tragedy unusually ',
pathetic is the fact that the grandson i
was the grandfather's Idol. The two
were inseparable, and often slept to
gether. Monday night the boy went to
his grandfather's house, as usual, and.
aiii i a happy evening, the two re
tired. The next the family heard of '
them was early Tuesday, when, from I
behind the smoke and flames that
enveloped the house, the boy I
"Oh, grandpa, get me out of here,
quick. I'm burning to death!"
"Yes, son; don't be afraid. Grand
pa will take you out," was the calm

the house at the time Mrs. DeAr

mond fainted, and would have met
death In the flames had not her daugh
ter dragged her out Into the yard.

Copper Merger Held Up.
New York. The proposed $800,000
000 copper combine has been held up,
temporarily, at least, according to
Wall street reports, until lawyers for I
interests concerned can figure out the
effect that the Standard Oil decision
of last Saturday will have upon the
merger. Prominent corporation law
yers were quoted on Tuesday as ad
vising that It would be unwise to pro
ceed with merger plans in the face of
a decision bo drastic and apparently
prohibitive as that of last week.
