Niagara Falls, X. V., June 23. Don
ald Roscoc, 10 years old, and Hubert
Moore, 9 years old, both of Buffalo,
went to their death In a email boat
late yesterday afternoon in the whirl
pool rapids. Hundreds of men watch
ed helpless from the shore.
The boys ero playing in a flat
bottom scow half a mile above the
rapids, when the rope holding the
boat broke and they were carried out
Into the strewn and down the river.
Up to the time the boat reached mid
stream it made little progress. After
it passed the bridges the current car
ried it rapidly towards the rapids.
i !HIFT15fG BOAT Si:K. TOO LATE.
The bridge men did not see the boat
until it was close at hand. Then they
called fire headquarters and two com
panies of firemen were sent to save
the lads it possible.
Hundreds' of persons flocked to the
river banks in a vain effort at rescue.
Tho boys, realizing their fate, stood
up as the boat scared the edge of the
roaring whirlpool and clasped hands in
farewell. An instant later they were
t'nsulfed by a great wave in the rapids.
The boat shot out of bight.

TO ACCEPT RESIGNATION

Washington, D. C, June 23. The
resignation of United States Attorney
John L. McXab of San Francisco, wired
Saturday to President Wilson with sen

willing to say this much for publica

The president said he had no knowl
edge of the affair until he read of it
in the newspapers, but it appeared to
him at first glance that the reason
given for the postponement of the
case, that the commissioner general
of immigration might attend th3 trial
of his son, was a humane one. Mc

president's desk today and will be

because of lack of instruction and
training In this special line of work.
Proper facilities for hatching and
rearing chicks may have been lacking.
Deaths Raising perfect chickens is
net like making shoes or shingles.
The peculiar factor which Is termed
life has to be reckoned with and like
wise, also, its counterpart, death. It
Is difficult to see how anyone can build
up successfully a business in which
there sometimes occurs a season's loss
by death cf 50 per cent of the chickens
hatched, to say nothing of poor hatches
to start with. The breeding stock
must first be right Then the poultry
man must know how to make the
chicks hatch and live. He must be
willing to-work hard.
Feed Waste A leak that often
drains away the possible profit is the
waste in feeds and feeding. The ra
tions are sometimes supplied without
regard to the special needs of the
fowls at different seasons and under
varying conditions. Cleanliness must
be insisted upon.
Lost Labor Unreliable helpers are
a frequent source of failure. Ineffi
cient, ill-applied, or useless labor costs
much money and brings no adequate
returns. Labor saving tools, appli
ances and conveniences which actual
ly facilitate the work and economise
expenses are desirable. Every step,
every motion of the keeper of the
fowls should count for gain on the
Managers The manager of the
poultry plant Ehould have that rare
quality ability to manage men so as
to make their labor economically ef
fective. Have each helped do the
part that he can do best. Arrange a
schedule of regular days and hours
for regular wok. Plan the work so
that everything will be ready to begin
when the time comes, then see that
the men work right along. Allow no
visitors to interrupt their labors.
The poultry plant should not be
built too large to commence with.
Study the local cfinditions, especially
the markets, with regard to both the
sale of the products and the purchase
of supplies. Experiment a little under
the conditions of the given locations.
Test the poultry specialties that seem
most promising, then extend and de
velop the business along the particu
lar lines that experience proves to be
most profitable end safe.
Little . Capital The young poultry-
man with little capital may begin by
supplying families with fresh eggs, lat
er furnishing them with table fowls.
In time he may take up the breeding
of fancy fowls. After the undertak
ing is in running order scrutinize ev
ery expenditure as carefully 83 is
done by the big corporations. Small
things must be looked after. Waste
no by-product. Pay liberally for I
"brains" to help if necessary, for good
breeding stock and for effective adver
tising, but be stingy and yet sensible
about other expenses. The available
capital must be sufficient to purchase
the foundation live 6tock, to properly
house the same and to buy the neces
sary appliances. Money must also be
on hand for meeting the ordinary run
ning expenses, wages, feed, etc. Fin
ally, funds are required to tide over
the first one, two or three years until
the receipts assume a profitable return
for the investment. Illinois Farmers'
Incompetence Failure in poultry
plants ha3 most often 4een due to
incompetent or ignorant men having

powers. Sometimes capable men fail

Ho Couldn't Plow.
A certain incident connected with
the great Napoleon while he was in ex
ile in Elba la commemorated in the is
land to this hour by an inscription af
fixed to tho wall of ii peasant's house.
A man named (Jineonl was . plowing
when the famous exile came along one
day and expressed an interest in his
work. Napoleon even took the plow
share out of the man's hand and at
tempted to auide It himself. But the
oxen refused to obey blni. overturned
the plow and spoiled the furrow.
The inscription runs thus: "Napoleon
the Great, passing by this place In
MDCCCXIV. took In the neighboring
field a plowshare from the bands of a
peasant and himself tried to plow, but
the oxen, rebellious to those bands i
which yet had guided Europe, head-1
long- fled from the furrow."
When people of nervous temperament
retire for the night and cannot sleep it
is usually because their brains are still
active and refuse to part with the
blood which should properly travel else
where. What the sleepless really need
is a sloping bed. so that the congested
head will relieve itself easily of the
superfluous blood. For the upper part
of the body, being heavier than the
lower, inevitably sinks more deeply
into the bedding, and even if one props
the head on two pillows the neck is
curved and strained and obstructs tho
backward flow of blood.
