It would appear from the above
letter that Senator McLaurin had
delicately Intimated to Mr. Archbold
that be was a lawyer and that there
were other methods than mere cam
paign contrtbhitions by which Mr.
Archbold could express his apprecia
tion of Senatorial courtesies.
Mr. Archbold replies that he is
"greatly interested in the suggestion
of the law practice" and promises
Senator McLaurin that he "will see
that it is kept in mind." Mr. Arch
bold even goes so far as to "hope
that something may develop" in
which he can be of service to Senator
McLaurin "in connection therewith."
Senator 'McLaurin is so eager to
deserve Mr. Archbold's good opin
ion and to carry out Mr. Archhold's
suggestion of "doing a little judic
ious nagging occasionally" of Till
man, conveyed in the letter from Mr.
Archbpld to Congressman Sibley,
that he eventually calls Senator Till
man a liar and comes to blows with
him on the floor of the Senate.

that retirement that Senator McLau

s "straaded like an old hulk on the

Tbis magnificent trophy is made of
'olorado coin silver, and is valued at
.500. It stands three. feet high,

)f oats exhibited at the Nationat -
Corn -exposition through five aucces
:ive expositions, beginning with the
third National Corn exposition in

until the succeeding exposition.
The individual oat grower wi.n
shall win the trophy the greatest
number of times out of Ave at least
twice, is to be awarded the perman

exposition a one-pound sample of the
winning oats is placed In the trophy,
under seal, and at the e i of the
period these fve pound packages of
prize oats are to become ,he prop
