island, when 200 of the unconverted
savages, howling war cries and bran
dishing clubs and spears descended
upon their quarters and took every
one prisoner. The missionaries had
about twenty converts undergoing
training at the time and only nine
converts escaped. Both missionaries
were hound with thongs and were lei I
lying on the beach in the tropical sun

of the cannibal chiefs donning the
missionaries' clothes. The clergymen
had already been eaten.

still have been less by two votes than

Sounds a Note of Warning to
Farmers of Middle West.
New York. Causes that tend to in

proper conservation of the soil as the
remedy for the Increase were subject
matters of an address on Wednesday
by Secretary of Agriculture James
Wilson, before the New York produce
exchange. "We cannol afford to be
buying food from foreign countries,"
he said, "and we must see to It that
our western farms produce enough,
not only for home consumption, but
also to sell abroad, and square up the
balance of trade.'
"The cost of living calls for a care
ful inquiry into the causes that have
operated to bring about conditions now
to us as a people. We have had great
abundance of food and prices that
were lower than most other countries
with which we compete In commerce
and manufacturing. Compensation for
skill and labor has been comparative
ly high In our country, but Increased
cost of living has been an absorbing
factor that cannot be adjusted at
present to the satisfaction of those
"The major part of our people in
the east are being fed from the Mis
sissippi valley, and the states of the
south draw much from the same
source. I am well satisfied that the
soils of that valley are being subject
ed gradually to the same unwise treat
ment that so seriously destroyed the
soils east of the Allegheny 4 south
of the Ohio."
