Batter Dear Next Winter.
Statistics on butter in cold storage
throughout the country show a condi
tion that is perplexing the trade, name
ly a price level higher than last year
by 24 cents a pound despite an in
crease this year In supplies of 225,000
tubs over last year. The situation is
without precedent and is causing con
siderable anxiety. June butter, which
is the standard for storage, was put
away this year at an average of about
28.53 cents ner nound for SDoeials.
which is the highest grade, compared
with. 2C.31 cents lat year. Adding the i
usual 2 cents cost for storage, the price j
at which this butter will come out of
storage next fall and vvinter is brought !
up to 30.59. j
These Cgures give scant encourage- j
ment for a lower cost of living next
winter, in butter at least.
About the same condition prevails,
moreover, in the other kindrecj prod-
much higher level of values than last
year despite good increase in sup- j
New York, Chicago. Boston and Phil-1

of 239,9CC packages over tho record a i
year ago. A package or tub is CO :

Tho usual explanation given by !
members of the trade for a combina-1
tion of larger supplies and higher j
prices is that tho Chicago packers have
been in the country markets for dairy
products on a larger scale than ever
this year. Their bidding for butter,
cheese and eggs is said to account for
the higher level. In regard to butter.
the impression Is that the packers i
would like to see butter high in order
to make a better demand for their
Even the most conservative of New
York dealers believe that the packers
are extending their operation each
year in dairy products. The well
equipped stores operated by the pack
ers In that city and others are the
best of evidence they say in support
of their opinion.
It Is a singular Tact that the average
man and woman is ready to be per
suaded to invest money in "prospects"
and the higher colored they are the
more numerously and more rapidly
people will "bite." Too frequently
they don't stop to consider at all and
scarcely ever dp they realize what
should be a patent fact that if the pro
ject cr scheme, or whatever the propo
sition may be called, the syndicate
handling it would keep it all them
selves, and wouldn't be peddling the
gilt-edged stock around at a few or
many cents on a dollar. Of course
it takes all kinds of people to make
up a world, but the kind who will
tumble over themselves to put up their
money on a swindling proposition are
too innocent for any use at all in this
sad and wicked world, except to fur
nish tlie wherewithal for slick and un
scrupulous promoters to wax fat at
The latest special swindle is the
"rubber plantation." All one -has to
do Is to invest a few hundred dollars
in a rubber plantation for sale at . a
bargain and gold galore will flow into
his coffers in no time at all.
Some time ago the deal was in cof
fee. People were told there was a
mine of wealth in coffee. All that was
necessary to do was to put out a few
plants and within a year or two go
down and harvest the crop.
panles were formed and not infre
quently a coffee plantation of five
acres was sold to credulous buyers for
$5,000. But the coffee gold mine has
been worked out worked to a frazzle
as the saying Is. , Now the agile, ver
satile, smooth talking agent of a
"syndicate" is baiting his hook with,
"rubber." There are millions in it,
of course for the syndicate.
Beware of tlie rubber man! This
rubber scheme has been on the boards
for quite a while, but it is declared to
be "no good." According to Ernest
Hill, a New Yorker, with considerable
interest in Mexico, and especially in
the state of Vera Cruz, declares that
moEt of the men who have been per
suaded to put their money in rubber
plantations in Mexico with the hope
of making a great deal of money in
a very short time, will be sadly dis
appointed Mr. Hill says:
"The fact of the matter is that rub
ber does not pay as well as would most
other crops. My observations are that
a rubber plantation will not return a
cent for many years after it has been
"The trees are planted about 220 to
the acre, and before the age of six
they produce practically no rubber at
all. After that they may be tapped
profitably as far as the expenses of
tapping are concerned. After six years
of age every healthy tree will give
about one ounce of rubber twice a
year, this being about SO pounds to the
acre. With the highest price ever paid
to the producer of rubber in Mexico
this would amount to about $25, Amer
ican, to the acre per year."
"But not every company and syndi
cate which has taken up rubber lands
in Mexico fared as well as here out
lined, and many, according to Mr. Hill,
have now decided to turn their hold
ings to better account, most of them
having taken up the cultivation of
sugar cane, cotton, and other crops.
Mr. Hill is of the opinion that rubber
as a cultivated crop will never amount
to much and that would-be purchasers
of rubber company stock had better
keep their money.
"No matter what socalled rubber
lands in Vera Cruz and other parts
may cost," said Mr. Hill, "the return
on them under rubber is not great
enough to warrant any man putting big
money into them. The best return per
acre that will ever be made even with
the present fancy prices will not ex
ceed $50, gold, per acre. Take from
this sum all working expenses, losses
and possible damage to the trees, and
there is very little left that would jus
tify the glowing pictures painted in
the literature of the rubber plantation
promoters. The man with any sense
In his make-up will leave the rubber
"Land down there is very cheap and
very good for almost any purpose,
but not for rubber. In my opinion rub
ber can be cultivated, but the trouble
is that tho land on which it could be
cultivated successfully Is located in
! what is called tiorras calientes, or hot
lands- districts absolutely unsuited as
tho habitat of white men. For this
reason the wild rubber forest trill for
a lonS time yet be our principal supply
of Ule commodity."

Where the meaning of words has chang-
ed, the text is to be changed so as not

infelicitous in choice of words that will

of these lines, but happily the work i3
in the hands of men of taste and judg
ment, who will make no change for
the mere sake of change.
As to obsolete words, it may be said
that no word that is in the bible can
become obsolete. The bible words live,
and undoubtedly the English bible has

in keeping borne good words in use that
might otherwise have passed out of it.
"Let" in the sense of hinder is said to
be condemned of the revisers, and per

in that use of it.
Increase in Telephone Calls.
There were more than 11,000,000,000
conversations by . telephone in the
United States in 1907, according to es
timates in the census bureau's report
now vbeing printed. This shows that In
five years from 1902 to 1907 the use of
me telephone in the United States more
than doubled, to be exact, increased
124 per cent, for only 5,000,000,000 con
versations were reported In 1902.
This huge Increase In the use of
telephones was accompanied by an as-
tonshing growth in the telephone in
dustry and wonderful ramification of
telephone wires In every part of the
country. The miles of telephone wire
in use in 1907 were 12,999,309, or more
than one and a half times the 4,900,451
miles strung in 1902. The number of
employes of telephone companies near
ly doubled in the five years. The av
erage number of wage earners in 1902
was 64,628; in 1907, 118,871.
Governor Harmon Doing Right.
Governor Harmon of Ohio has shown
admirable promptness in taking steps
to dispose of the sheriff and mayor of
Newark, because they failed to enforce
the law against a mob of lynchers,
and In further insisting that those
guilty of the atrocious crime of lynch
ing should be prosecuted and pun
ished. Governor Harmon evidently believes,
with Mayor Gaynor of New York, that
"this is a government by laws, not
by men." In this he is democratic and
Mob law and lynching is to be at
all times deprecated. There is no jus-
tiflcatlon for rioters taking the law
in their own hands. However aggra
vating the circumstances may be there
is ample law in the statute books of
every state to punish the guilty and
protect the innocent.
The mob at Newark were grossly
violating the laws of Ohio; and the
sheriff and mayor failed in their duty
to prevent the mob from carrying out
its frenzied purpose.
The deposing of these officials, there
fore, by Governor Harmon and his
prompt action in dealing with the case
is to be heartily commended.
TO OBSERVE JUBILEE
Next Year's Meeting Will Be 25th
Annual and It Will lie Held at
East St. Louis.
One of the active professional asso
ciations of this state is the Illinois So
ciety of Engineers and Surveyors,
which has issued its volume of pro
ceedings for 1910, with an announce
ment that the 25th or jubilee anni
versary will be held at East St. Louis
in January, 1911. The society was
organized at a meeting held at Cham
paign, in January, 1SS6. and has a
present membership of about 22G. The
members are engineers engaged in all
kinds of work throughout the state.
They include city and municipal engi
neers, consulting engineers, civil en
gineers of steam and electric railways,
drainage engineers, professors of en
gineering colleges, city and county
surveyors, etc. The society has com
mittees which report on roads, pave
ments, sewers, water supply, railways,
land drainage, surveying and other
subjects. Its work has so much rela
tion to public comfort and public
health that it is desirous of giving to
the public some information as to its
The society holds a meeting in Jan
uary of each year, and meets once in
four years at Chicago and at the Uni
versity of Illinois, one of the special
aims being to keep in touch with the
engineering ivork at the university,
and also with the young engineers
who graduate therefrom. Its 1910
meeting was held at Cairo in January.
It occasionally recommends or en
dorses legislative measures related to
engineering matters and in the public
interest, but it has no political aims.
As stated in its constitution its ob
jects are the encouragement of pro
fessional improvement and of good
fellowship among its members.
The officers for 1911 are as follows:
President A. N. Johnson, state high
way engineer, Springfield.
Vice President J. W. Dappert, city
engineer of Taylorvllle.
Trustees Edward Bartow, director
of the state water survey, Urban a; Ju
lius G. Gabelman, division engineer of
the board of local improvements, Chi
cago; George C. Habermeyer, instruc
tor In municipal engineering at the
University of Illinois, and A. B. Alex
ander, city engineer of Decatur.
The last two past presidents are
Charles R. Burdick, hydraulic engineer
of Chicago, and John B. Hittell, chief
engineer of streets of Chicago.

"Why it is." said the ranchman,
"that some wiuioieu can't make a
straight deal with a lover.
"We had a case out here onct where
a gal kep" two fellers danglin' after
her till she pretty nigb set both on
'em crazy. At last she had to decide
all on a suddeu. and it didn't take her
a second to show which one on 'em
had her heart. Mebbe she didn't know
herself before that which did have
it. aud mebbe she did know. Least
awnys there wasn't uo hesitation when
the time come to make a show down.
"She was a little Mexican gal. IJer

Spain, and senee most o' the big fami

Herrara bein' the youngest o' twelve
children be went to Mexico, married
and come op to this here territory to
raise sheep. He had a daughter. Pac
quita. born on his ranch. From the
time she was able to walk she was
out o' doors alt the while, climbin'
lences and trees, and when she was
four was ridin' the horses to water.
"When I'acquita was sixteen she
was a terror to her father and mother.
She could shoot, ride, swing a lariat,
do anything u cowboy could do. I've
seen ber toss her handkerchief on tbe
ground, ride by it at full speed and
with one spur hooked to ber saddle
reach down and pick it up. At that
time she used to wear her hair flowin'
out like a comet's tail same as little
gals do and it was topped by a som
brero. Her jacket and skirt were
Mexican, with lots o" gold braid. Her
eyes were black and her complexion
almost as dark as a quadroon's. She
got that from her mother, who had
Aztec blood in her.
"There was a Mexican boy whose
fnther owned a ranch near the Her
rara property that was brought up
with Pacquita. He viis just the same
age. and they were Just like brothers.

I'ucquiia was more like a brother to

Jose Serrano than a sister. But I
reckon they was more like lovers from
the very first.
"They was always together till one
day a young Englishman come out
here to be a rancher. He was the
sleekest looking feller I ever see. Ed
ward Allston was bis name, and he
was a thoroughbred and no mistake. I
didn't see him ridin about with Pac
quita till some time after his comin'
here; then I used to see 'em together
ofteu. It dWn't seem to me that if the
Englishman wanted her the little Mex
ican would stand a ghost of a chaDct.
But. while she wan with the Britisher
a good deal, she didn't drop the Mexi
can. She appeared to be just as fond
of him ns ever. But what kind of
fondness it was. now that Allston had
come along. I didn't know. It seemed
to me that sooner or later the little
chap would find out that he was no
where and the Britisher had the right

Britisher. It didn't appear to me that
be was more interested in her than
if sbe'd been any other gal. It war tbe
way she slung them big black eyes
about that made me think she was try

"The reason I took all this interest in
the matter was thnt I was as fond o'
Pacquita as if she d been my own lit

Jose Herrara was concerned she could

But I didn't know anything about her

"But as time wore on I saw I'acquita
and Allston more and more together,
while Serrano seemed to be droppet?

manners should supplant a boy whe

He'd been about tbe only person I'ac

it was natural she should gradually

"But the tiniecosno when It was plain
enough that tbe Englishman bad been
landed and was layin on his side
gaspiu. What I mean by that is that
the gal had woveu a spell about him
be couldn't resist, and he' was dead
gone on her. From that time she did
not seem so stuck on him as she was
before. That's the way with nil of us
when we once git a thing we don't care
so much about it as we thought we
did. That's what I thought was the
case with Pacquita. but tbem as knew
told me I was wrong. They said she
was in love with Allston und was goiu'
to marry him.
"The'race was comln to a finish, with
big odds on Allston. Leastaways. it
would 'a' been ridiculous for racquitn
to stick to a boy lover when she could
git a man and a fine man at that. But
she didn't seem to want to decide.
"One day I'acquita was out on ber
horse, got up, as usual, in her Mexican
toggery, a revolver at her side and a
lariat at the pommel of her saddle,
when she saw the two men who was
courtin' her ridin toward each other.
She wondered what they was goin' to

Is. all along she had been keepln' Ser

Bton. Then she remembered that there
was a quicksand between 'em. an' she
began to worry lest one on 'em would
git into It. She reckoned Jose Serrano
knew all about It, but she wasn't sure
Allston did. They was a ridin' kind o'
reckless, especially Serrano, and 6he
made up her mind there war goin' to
be a fracas. She war bound to stop
it. so she started for 'em.
"Well, before she reached 'em they
met. She saw that Serrano was talk
In" mighty savage to Allston. while
Allston was a-keepin" bis temper and
pattin' his horse, which neemed restive,
to keep him quiet. I'acquita rode on
as fast as tbe could make ber beast

two men come to blows. Then she no

Serrano went ou talkln' excitedly, but
