Bigger Yields \
A given number of acres fertilized with Farmers' Bone produce a
greater yield of cotton, than the same acreage with ordinary fertilizer.
Farmers' Bone does more than that. It makes it possible to reduce
the acreage and increase the yield. Try it this year. The man
Made With Fish
has twenty-one years of fertilizer ^experience back of him. ;Over
13,000 carloads of Royster fertilizers were used on the crops of 1905,
This volume of business stamps Farmers' Bone the best.

PAT CROWE CONFESSE i IN A LEI
TER TO A PRIEST. '
The Farmers JKidnapper Gives His.
tory of the Miserable Life He
Spent After His Crime.
A dlspascti from Omaha, Neb., says
Pat Crowe's last chance to escape
from the penitentiary for kidnapping
Eddie Cudahy and robbing his father
of 825,000 in gold, has failed. His
confession to tbe crime as written to
Father Murphy, of the Oatholio church
at Yall, Iowa, was Friday morning
read to the jury before which he Is
now betag tried.
During the reading of the letter
whlcb it is believed will send bim to
prison for a term of years. Orowe
sat with bowed head, never once look
ing up, bis hands twitching nervous
ly. His old smile had disappeared
and there are drawn lines around his
eye3 and mouth. He whispered to his
brother, wbo sits with him, and each
wore a look of care.
Taere was an air of surprised ex
citement in the room, which was
crowded an hour before court con
vened, when Judge Sutton took his
seat. It was known that the decision
in regard to the letter, which, it is
believed, would practically settle the
case, would be handed down and the
letter read in open oourt if admitted.
Judge Sutton admitted the, letter,
saying in his ruling.
"There is nothing In the communi
cation which could not have been
granted.by any person other than a
priest. He does not ask for any spir
itual relief whatever. The sole rea
son for writing this letter was to se
cure relief from secular law, not from
the spiritual law. He authorized a
disclosure of this letter to both Mr.
and Mrs. Cudahy, thus showing it is
not a spiritual communication. The
letter was to secure earthly, not spir
; , confession to priest.
The letter which was then read to
the jury, in part as follows:
. 'Omaha, April 22. 1904.
"Rev. Father Murphy, Vail, lav:
' "Dear Friend?I wrote you a letter
? from Chicago a few months ago, and
j your answer was very encouraging to
me, as I have for several years
> thought of reforming and starting life
i anew. For the past fifteen years my
f suffering has been intense. My chil

I have wronged a man that has been a

j I am to blame for Ahe whole crime.
After it was oTer I regretted my bit

* "I wlsa you would write to Mr.
t Cudahy and Mrs. Gbdahy and pray
R f?r mercy. Remember this: And
Mr. Cudahy knows, as do hundreds of
1 others In this city, that I fed the
t oungry and I myself was poor and
, that I showed meroy to tbe rich and
mighty when they were in my pow
1 er, and that if I oared to surround
l myse'f with stolen gold I could have
. ten millions inside of thirty days. But
I have found no happiness In evil, and
? ?m going to return to the teachings
of my childhood. If I must suffer I
will not repine. Write to Mr. and
Mrs Cudahy and ask them to show ne
some mercy. This is all, and I will
say good-by. "PatCbowe."
