Mr. .McMnstcr Acknowledges Hfs Er
ror In Quotlug From Report*
Editor The Advertiser:
I beg to be allowed to acknowledge
the oorrectlon, pointed out i>y Mr.
Rlchey In bis speech at Waterloo,
ot* the amounts collected by the Comp
troller General during the years 1905,
1000 and 1907, from Insurance com
1 fell Into the error by Inking the
totals to he found in the Insurance
report proper, of the Comptroller
General, pages IT">. SC4 and 1209, re
spectively, of Reports and Resolutions
1?0G. 1907, and 1908, for the years end
ing December 31, 1905, 1900 and 1907.
I find that in these totals the Comp
troller General did not Include the
receipts for the first quarter in each
year. Therefore, the figures given
by me. unwittingly, wire for nine
months of each year, only. The cor-j
root figures are as follows!
1907 . 42,129.99
The amount ($4S,707.30) reported by
me for 1908, since the establishment
of the Insurance department, ?.is also
for nine months only. The total for
the year 190S was $55.750.21. the dif
ference, about $7,000 having been re
ceived by the Comptroller General
de i the three months previous to
the establishment of the insurance
The receipts from January i. 1909
to December 31, 1909 were $84.813.59.
Prom January 1. 1910 to August 10,
.Mr. Rlchey lias fallen into an error
in stating that the comptroller gener
al's report for 1009 shows only $5S,000
instead of $81, 813.59, as given above
by ine. Hi lias confused the report
for Die year ending December 31, 1908
and published in '.'<>?'.>. with the year
to which I referred, ending Decem
ber 31, 1909 and published in 1910.
Regretting exceedingly thai l made
these error.-. I ask that you publish
iliis in justice io myself and for the
information of the pel lie.

vide me with shelter, a clean, dry bed
and a stall wide enough for me to
lie down in comfort. Talk to um.
Your voice often menus as milC- to

that I may serve you the more gladly
and learn to love yon.
Do not jerk the reins, and do not
whip nie when going up bill. Never
strike, bent, or kick me when I do
not understand what you mean, but
give me a chance to understand you.
Watch nie. and if I fail to do your
bidding, see if something is no*
wrong with my harness or feet.
Examine my teeth when l do not
eat. I may have an ulcerated tooth
and that, you know, is very painful.
Do not tie my head in an u: natural
position or take away my best defense
against Mies and mosquitoes by cut
ting of my tail.
And finally. Oh my master, when
my useful strength is gone, do not
turn me out to starve or frei v.e. or
sell me to some cruel owner to be
slowly tortured and starved to death;
hut do thou, my master, take my ||f<
in the kindest way and your God will
reward you here and hereafter. You
