ASKED FOR A MILLION
Louisianlan Tells Congress of Needs
of South for Tick Eradication.
We'stern Newspaper Union News Service.
Baton Rouge. - Dr. W. H. Dalry
maple of the Louisiana State I'niver
sity, has returned from Washington,
D. C., where he went to urge a million
dollar appropriation upon congress for
the eradication of the cattle tick in the
South.
At the last meeting of the Southern
Live Stock Association a committee j
was named to appear before congress
and urge this appropriation, and Dr.
Dalrymaple was named as a member.
"We were well received in Washing
ten," he said, "and I think we will
get a least a half a million for this
work, although we asked a million.
We appeared before both the house
and senate committee, and the-senate
appeared especially interested in the
plan. t
"WVe tried to show the committee
that the eradication of the cattle tick
in the South was not a Southern prob
lem, but a big national question, and t
that it was closely interwoven with the I
hilgh cost of living. Because, as we
are now situated, the South is practi
cally stopped from shipping cattle. I
The South should be the greatest cat
tle growing section of the United
States, and will be if the tick is
eliminated. With the South producing
the cattle that it should the cost of
, living all over the United States would
be reduced.
"The Texas fever is the one disease
that can be eliminated. Mississippi
in less than three years will be tick
free and will be able to ship its cat
tle to any part of the country. The
world's markets will be open to it.
The eradication of the cattle tick can
be done, it is going to be done, and
the cheapest way is to spend a lot of
money and do it now."
BIG CROPS PREDICTED
Speaker Says Conditions Are ideal
for Planters to Profit
Western Newspaper Union News Service.
rSt. Martinville.-Jules Dreyfus of
New Iberia, speaking to the farmers
and citizens of this town on the pros
pects of the rice industry in this par
ish, said that the rice crop for the
coming three years is going to be the
most profitable investments in the
state of Louisiana. The land of the
Teche country subject to irrigation of
Teche waters produces one of the best
types of rice in the United States, due
to the temperature of the Teche
s stream and to the alluvial land of this
country. It will take three years
with normal increase of rice consump
tion per year to create a speculative
surplus of rough rice to depress the
4 price of this product. The price of
rough rice is $4 to $4.21 per barrel,
a which means $5 per sack to the plant
er. The minimum crop raised per
acre on th-se Teche lands under the
most unfavorable circumstances is
ten sacks per acre, which means $50
per acre trans:erred into money, rep
resenting a prospective profit of at
least $25 per acre.

Ready to Cede Adrianople.
It is said that Constantinople has I
accepted the views of Recnad Pasha,
who recently asked to be permitted to
reconvoke the conference. The diffi
culty now lies in the determination of
the allies not to participate unless
they are informed In advance what
Turkey intends to propose. They do I
not wish to revive the discussion of
unacceptable terms, but desire to have
it as a certainty that Turkey is ready
to cede Adrianople. after which it will
be possible to discuss the frontier
line, which must leave that town in
the hands of the allies.

CORNERING COTTON MARKET IS
HELD TO BE ILLEGAL.
Supreme Court of United States De
cides He and Associates Violated
Anti-Trust Law in 1910.
Washington. D. C.-"Cornering the
market" in ctommodities i-, lii' ,al tin
der the Sherman aiiti-tru- t law, ac
cording to a decision of the supremle
court of the United States. which iihld
James A. l'atten and his assoclates
for trial in the New York federal
courts for an alleged "corneriug" of
the cotton market in 1910.
Patten is the Chicago operator
whose manipulations in thie wheat pit
were a sp'ctacular featlre of the
grain markets on numerous occasions.
Justice Vandevanter delivc.ed the
court's opinion.
Patten and his associates were in
dicted in New York. The circuit court
for the Southern district of New York
quashed the indictment, declaring pri
vate ownership of large quantities of
cotton did not create a ni;nopoly, and
that the cotton operatuis are not
chargeable with any attempt to re
strain interstate commerce.
In effect, Patten and his associates
pleaded "cornering" of any product is
not prohibited by the Sherman anti- th
trust law. They argued that a corner 'r
is not a complete restraint of trade, rý
and only a commercial incident of fc
trade.
It was contended that participants f
in a corner were not "conspirators" to
restrain trade, and that the govern
ment's charge was too remote and in
direct Those indicted with Patten
were Eugene Scales, Frank B. Hayne C
and W. P. Brown.
"The contracts of the defendants,"
the court declares, "amounted prac
tically to issuance of orders to buy
more cotton than the actual supply.
This was a means of stimulating the
I- market-of operating a 'corner.'"
Justice Lurton dissented from the
opinion on technical grounds. Chief
Justice White and Justice Holmes dis
sented.

CALIFORNIA HAS THE COLDEST
WEATHER IN 40 YEARS.
Half of Citrus Crop Is Gone-Tempe' b
ature Goes as Low as 17-Car
riers Also Suffer.
Los Angeles, Cal.-Temperatures
from 4 to 6 degrees lower than
ever before were recorded, blasting
the hopes of orange and lemon grow
ers. Estimates of citrus fruit losses
ran from $10,000,000 to $30,000,000 and
railroad freight losses, figured in
terms of shipment, were approximat
ed in the statement of shippers that
the 1913 crop of oranges and lemons
would be from 10.000 to 20,000 car
loads short. Southern California has
I had the coldest weather in 40 years.
1 Last year's crop netted growers
a $35,000.000. Eleven millions went to
d the railroads in freight and refrigera
n tor charges. At the beginning of the
d season this year's crop value was es
t- timated at $50,000,000, and, according
n to heads of various fruit associat.ons
and firms, the damage done by the
d two days' freeze will amount to per
- haps half of theentire crop.
1- Actual losses to both growers and
a railroads, however, will be dependent
0 to a certain extent upon the attitude
of the government toward the ship
r ment of slightly damaged fruit.

HUSBAND IS SHOCKED
Exercises Which at First Called Bath
Ing Suits Into Use Now Have Garb
Specially Made-Brown Stockings
and Mauve Underwear.
Chicago.-An Evanston man who
has watched the wife's rapid progress
through club life was started the oth
er day in rummaging about the house
to discover a strange costume he nev
er had seen his wife wear The cooe
tume was scanty. It consisted of four
yards of chiffon, brown stockings, and
a trim little suit of light brown under
I wear. C'lutching the evidence in one
hand and his spectaciles in another he
dashed into the library.
"Wh-what is all this?" he demand
ed.
The wife laid down her copy of
lienrik Ibsen.
"Why," she said calmly, "that's my
eurythmy suit."
After her husband had revived she
explained she had become a member
of Evanston society's latest cult. It
is a school of "rhythmic dancing and
interpretative art."
Three times a week Evanston wom
en seek "eurythmy." They hasten to
the studio with small bundles and
line up for their study class. The
brown suit represents the tanned skin
of the ancient Greek. the scarf of chit
fon their costume.
At first the classes performed in
bathing suits, but "eurythmy" could
not be attained in such cumbersome
costumes and the inexpensive Greek
scarfs draped over union suits were
substituted.
"It isn't dancing." said one of the
women, when questioned. "It is a
serious educational theory. Rhythm
is at the bottom of it and rhythm wtl
discipline the minds as well Ms the
8 body.
"Every movement means a deSfnite
beat in the metrical structure of the
music. The actions may be read from
music sheets, only we dance the note
Snstead of playing them."
"Why. I'm just crazy about it." "sal

t carries out the theory of old Greeh
Sharmony, costumes, sad everything
y and let's you express yourself all over.
I rather like the costume because it's
comfortable and there's nothing int
N the way and it helps the harmony.
"You see one's feet are keeping
time different from what the hands
are following, and it keeps both sides
of one's brain at work. There's real
ly nothing like It. Isadora Duncan
made a start toward it, but this is
n.uch more thoughtful than anything
d she ever tried to do. After we learn
a lot about it we'll be able to dance
- symphony, with a chorus foq the
heavy chords and a little solo work.
It expressed just what the composers
wanted to express, and much better
than a piano can do it."
The pursuit of a dance in which evor
ery little movement has a musical
meaning all its own has accomplish
ed wonders for still another, who
said:
"Why, only last week we were play
ing that little child's game at the
club-what is it? O. yes, "Simon says
