SENATOR BAILEY ENDS NOTABLE CAREER
The retirement of Joseph W. PIal
ley of Texas from the 'United States
senate narks the close of one of the '
most remarkable political careers in
the history of congress. For more
than twenty-three years S,-nator HIal
ley has served his party in the halls
of the lower and uipper houses.
Espousing the cause of )Democracy
be entered congress as a representa- /
tive from the Fifth Texas district,
while only twenty-seven years old
In the senate he took the lead in
almost every debate, was always an
effective speaker and was one of the :
most praised and maligned Democrats
in that body.
Senator Bailey served in the fifty
second, fifty-third, fifty-fourth and
fifty-sixth congresses. He aligned
himself with the Bryan free silver
policy early In his congressional ca
reer. Despite the fact that he had
risen in the ranks of the lower house
to a strong position of leadershil he
was severely criticised by the Populists of Texas and after the national con
vontion of 1896 he announced that he would not again be a congressional
candidate
Mr. Bailey did not quit politics, however. Indeed his refusal of the con
gressional candidacy was regarded as one of the shrewdest moves of his
political career. It brought him prominently before the people of his home
state with whom he was a prime favorite and in a measure forced his elec
tion as Urfited States senator
This election was made in 1901 At the expiration of this term he was
reelected to that body, his term expiring March 4, 1913.
CZAR OF RUSSIA IS THE RICHEST MAN
"Czar Nicholas rules over the larg
est empire on the globe; he draws the
biggest salary of any ruler; he is
the richest man in the world." said
a well-known Russian the other day.
"Those are three things which Amer
ica with all its 'biggest' cannot
equal." he added.
Well-informed Russians say the
czar is wealthier than Rockefeller,
Morgan. Carnegie or any one of the
Rothachilds. Attention has been
drawn to his vast wealth by the re
cent death of Count Dendrikoff, his
* "man of affairs."
Just how wealthy the "Little
Father" of all the Russians is no one
seems to know. It is doubtful wheth
er he himself could come as near
telling what his balance is as perhaps
the Standard Oil trust king could
name his. The bookkeeping in the
domain of the oil king is more scien
tific than among the Russians.
It is estimated, however, that the
czar's income. including his salary and profits and dividends from his vast
property, is-about 37% million dollars a year-$3.125.000 a month, or $104.166
and a few odd cents a day.
To begin with, his salary for ruling the Russians is approximately 8s
millon dollars a year as fixed by the "civil list." Out of this he gives about
one million dollars in subsidies to operas, theaters and academies, and di
vides one-half to one million dollars between the grand dukes and grind
duchesses. His mother, the dowager empress. and his wife, the czarina, are
said to receive from him each $125.000 annually for "pin money." From the
time of their birth he is also reported to have set aside $50,000 yearly for
each of his four daughters. Into his son's savings bank he puts $100,000
everv Christmas.

wonld arise from It. once the press got hold of it But the argument was
made to her that the very fact of her interests, as daughter of the president.
would do more to forward the movement than any other single action, and
that such a step would be followed by other prominent society girls of the

Miss Taft then consented to the necessary publicity and her action has, as
prophesied, awakened widespread Interest among the daughters of the rich

San Francisco.-Suppose you lived
in a blistering bit of a Central Ameri

on one side of you and the sea blaz

smelly kerosene lamps for illumina

than you'd expect to find in an Ari

wave came along and smashed things
up pretty generally, but ended by
picking up a fine big steamer and
washing her over the bar into shoal
water near the beach, leaving her
there high and dry.
The funny thing about this particu

It was along about four years ago
that the steamer Osiris of the Kos
mos line of San Francisco was lying
off Ocos, Guatemala, when an earth
quake shook that part of the world
and was followed by a tidal wave big
enough to pick up the steamship as
if she had been a fishing smack and
carry her over the Intervening sand
banks to a point near the beach,
where it dropped her neatly between
two reefs just sufficiently far apart
to provide her with a comfortable
girdle.
When her crew left her, judging
her to be of no further use, a citizen
of Ocos, who had some experience of
civilized life, rowed out to the unin

Rome.-Extraordinary revelations
are made of the mode of life of Fran
cis-Charles of Bourbon, prince of Cap
us, who is seventysfive and has tived
a madman's life for forty years in the
Villa Marlia Capannori. For several
years now he has not spoken, having
apparently been struck deaf and dumb
in an apoplectic seizure. Every morn
ing at S a servant knocks at the door
of the prince's bed-chamber and hur

sumptuous repast-through a sliding
window inside the room. The prince

him, he would make the most terrible
noise, but nowadays, unable to give
vent to his feelings thus, he claws
at the air in front of him and lashes
out with his fists, though the intru
ders may be one hundred yards or
more away.
But the most remarkable perform
ance takes effect after breakfast. Day
after day, year in and year out, no
matter what the weather is like. the
unfortunate old man rushes stark
naked out of the room, down the cor
ridor, across the terrace of the villa
to a chair. It is always the same
chair. Once it was removed and the
prince fell down in one of his oft-re
curring fits. Seated on the chair he
dresses himself slowly, being general
ly presentable by midday. The rest
of the day is spent within a circle
of four or five square yards. The
prince never moves further away than
that from the chair. Round ani round
he walks, sharing his meals with the
birds.
He takes great delight in smashing
all the crockery each day. At 8 p. m.
is time for bed. A servant appears

London, England--The famous Jee

would shortly be begun with an idea
of getting the undamaged hull of the
Osiris into deep water, so that she
might resume her peregrinations

Can you imagine the grief in Ocos?
Can you conceive the misery of the

It has been almost too great a bur

New York School Teacher Sues Rich
Envelope Manufacturer for
Divorce.
New York.-Mrs. Germaine Lewers,
a teacher in public school 33, has
brought suit in the supreme court ask

John G. Lewers, a wealthy envelope
manufacturer on Pearl street, alleging
that he does not dress properly or
wear clean linen.
The Lewers couple were married by
Rev. Dr. Ashley of fit. artholomew's
church on December 1, 1906, and have
two children, Helen, five, and Mar

made a visit to Cambridge, Mass.
Upon her return to New York her hus
band, she says, accused her of flirt

bridge.
Answering his wife's application for
alimony, Lewers states that not once
in their married life did his wife lay
out for him a freshly pressed suit or
in any way seek to improve his wear
ing apparel and general appearance.
He further states that his wife has
developed a temper which makes their
living together impossible. He charges
that Mrs. Lewers gets a salary of $60
a month and Is well able to provide
for herself.

have cost far more than the vessel

by the crew and sold for old Junk. But

enough to see what a splendid chance
he had to make really big money out

the Wateree up as a hotel, cafe and

MUCH BENEFIT TO FARMERS
Should Get Together on Propositions
to 8ell Products and on Securing
Lower Rates.
Farmers may learn something from
the experience of other business
Many manufacturers have not capital
enough to run their business, and It
is common for them to make an agree
ment with a commission merchant
by which he loans money to the man
ufacturer, receives the manufactured
goods on consignment, sells them.
and out of the proceeds repays the
loan, and turns the balance over to
the manufacturer. The commission
merchant employs a competent per
son to watch the process of manufac
ture to see that it is done to the best
advantage. Experience shows that
this arrangement is advantageous to
both parties. Improvements suggest
ed by the merchant's agent are often
a great benefit to the manufacturer,
writes Everett P. Wheeler in the Ru
ral New Yorker. His goods are sold
to much better . advantage than he
could sell them himself, and he gets
the capital which he needs.
It seems to me that a similar ar
rangement could be worked out by a
group of farmers in any county. If
they would club together, get in toueach
with some of the commission mer
chants who make a business of selling
farm products, they could make an
agreement by which money should be
advanced upon their crops, and these
crops should be consigned for sale
to the commisdson merchant. Agree
ments could be made for lower freight
rates, if the farm products were
shipped by the carload.
Of course the success, of such a
business would depend entirely upon
the efficiency and good faith of those
engaged in it. But this is true of ev
ery business. There are many com
mission merchants who do their busi
ness well and honestly. Every farmer
who has had experience 'knows who
the commission merchants are that
sell his products to the best advan
tage. In short, all this business can
be done if the farmers will combine
and work together in any partlculat
locality. There is nothing that the
federal government can do for them
except possibly to investigate the sub
ject. The federal government has no
more power to charter societies for
the purpose than it has to run a dis
trlct school. If incorporation should
be needed, the state laws offer ample
facilities for the purpose. It is not
new legislation that is wanted, Jt is
really co-operation among the farm
ers.
Your correspondent, G.. asks:
"What is needed to save the life of a
co-operative institution if it does not
happen to be a profitable concern?"
My answer is watchfulness on the
part of those engaged in it. I know
of a small co-operative real estate
company that is profitable and has
lived for many years. In all proba
bility it will live for many years more,
because the stockholders watch the
managers and see that their business
is done right

TO MARKET FARM PRODU
Three important Factors to Be C.i
sidered From the 8tandpola
of the Farmers' Club.
It seems to me that there are thba~
important factors in marketing fat
products that we can consider hfr
the standpoint of the Farmers' ehlu
says a writer in the Farm, Stock adg
Home. To market farm products
must have quantity. We have got
have quantity enough to make
worth the other fellow's while to
us the best possible price he can fw,
that product. We have got to hava'
quantity enough so that it is aa eb
ject to him to get it from us, an
avoid the trouble of picking it
from 20 or 2001 people. It is a gr
expense to buy a carload from q
dozen or fifteen people. It is a gmo
deal cheaper to buy it from one mag;T
You can afford to pay that one ups
a better price. One of the thinglas
want to strive for is to have a lard
quantity of something for sale iat
that we can interest the dealer.
The second thing we want is
formity. We want a large qu
of a uniform product. The best Uh~
tration of this is our cooperkttivg
creameries. Years ago where to
farmers were each marketing $10,
or $20, or $50 worth of butter, -t
each one was making a different VL.e
of butter, different in color, Savse
and appearance, we didn't get the toe:
price for that butter. The man we
sold it to, the middleman, wasn't
blame. He couldn't take the mimt-.
up product and handle it to good A 
vantage. We have changed all that.
We have a creamery, all that butte'
made in one place under uniform p fa
ditions with the best machinery aag
equipment. A man who doesn't 4,
anything but study how to make t the
best kind of butter Is at the head t.'a
the plant. As a consequence, we ha1y -
in our co-operative creameries frol
$10,000 to $15,000 worth of unilor
product from our dairy cows, all ees'
trolled by one man, so far as selline
is concerned, with the result that Oe.
price farmers get for butter-fat on thM.
farm is almost the same as the priew'g
city people have' to pay for butte.r
There Isn't a big margin between the'
farmer and the consumer in the
ter market. The butter market is
the best condition of any of the
products. It seems to be handled
the most business-like way. We ha
