Jack Cudahy and Jere Lillis.
A newspaper story from Kan
sas City states that Jack Cud
ahy and his former wife have
mended the Lillis rent in their
matrimonial bed blanket and
will probably remarry. Under
the circumstances it is doubtless
te best thing they could.
The Cudahy-Lillas episodo
created quite a sensation at the
time. Both Oudahy and Lillis
were very wealthy men and
consequently hold very high
social and infltential positions
for in these days aud times
men's social, moral and finan
cial altitaudes are all based upon
Dun's or Bradstreet's reports ex
Orininali money gave mon
financial iprestage only and its
power should be limiited to that
point at all times, but man has
always had an insane desiro to
dlance around the golden calf
and at the present timie money
can buy honor for a thief, social
standing f'or an acknowledged
libertine ald fiamue for a fool.

JereLillis was a very wealthy
mani. lHe was a bachelor, well
educated, a very charming man
socially and what might be vul
garly termed a "'a lady's man,"
and a gilt-edged "Go-get-'er."
Added to all this, Jere was good
looking dressed expensively was
president of one of the biggest
banks in this country, and wore
derby hats, cuff trousers and
rainbow socks. With the wo
men, Jere was the entire sea
shore, water waves, sea weed,
pebbles, sand and sandcrabs
He was a welcome and fre
quent visitor to the -palatial
home of the Oudahys. In fact
his frequent and prolonged vis
its wvhich continued for years,
had set the Idle tongues of the
Kansas City gossips wIg wag
ging for many months prior to
the fatal night when he made
his last call, sang his last song
and played his last tune.
Jack Cudahy. it seems, ha~d
-not objected to Jere's frequent
and lengthened calls. One of
Jacks nearest neighbors told me
in person that the frequent vis
its of Lillis to the Cudahy man
sion at any and all hours wvas
known to everyone and as Cuda
hy did nd I seem to object to
them, it was taken for granted1
that he was there about as much
as Jack, and seemed to be0 per
fectly at home.
For some reason hard to guess
(when we remember the fre
quency and publicity of Jere's
visits,) Cudahy became jealous.
He had a bogus message sent
him, calling him hurriedly fl-omn
the city, and bidding his wlfe
a tender adieu, hurried off to
catch an imaginary train. But
he didn't go. instead he hid
out until very late at night, un
til all was quiet and serene at
home when accompanied by hIs
auto driver (I never could spell
shoffer) he silently entered his
home with a latch key and as
he expeCcted, found the courtly
Jere and his beautIful young
wife enjoying themselves as
we~ll as they could under the cir'
Disregarding all the cortesies
usually bestowed upon guests,
Jere was siezed, thrown to the
floor held forcibly down upon
the carpet by the hired] man,
while Jack proceded to carve
the gay othario in artistic
style. Some reports say that
Jack's auto driver was a doctor
in disguise. At any rate many
long gashes were made on Jere's
fade, chest, arms, legs and other
-portions of his anatomy. None
of them were particulary of a
frieidly nature, but probably
the unkind cut of all was when
Jaick made a bass slash and put
Jore in the tenor class where in
company with the immortal
Origen and other high singers
he can hereafter warble like an
oriole in tall timber.
The most difficult task to per
form is to justly assign each in
dividual connected with this un
fortunate affair his proper role.
So far as J'ro Lillis is concerned
the job is simple. He sowed the
wind and reaped the whirlwind.
It matters not one iota what his
relations may have been in the
Oudahy home he got no more
than was coming to him. le
was a man of the world-knew
right from wrong-was no fool
but on the other hand a bright,
intelligent man and he knew
full well that his conduct was
absolutely indefensible. It has
been stated that Jack Cidahy
was a great club mian-remain
ed away from home late at
nights, and left his wife alone
very miuich, Possibly so, but
that did not, imply that Jere
shoui neglect his work at the
bank and Spend most of his

anlother manl's wife and prevenit
her being lotesomie. Ei"specially
is this true when we renenhbel
that the neglected wife was the
iIother of fi ve lovely childrenl
aIld was inl a hoie surrolunded
by every luxury mioney could
pmocure, inlclulding m1anly ser
vants and attendants. Neithei
is Lillis justified by admitting
that his visits were sanctioned
or encouraged by the wife 01
Cudah y. Even if she encourag
him in doing wrong it was abso
lutely no excuse for him to d(
so. She might with equal au
thority have encouraged him t(
a murder one of the children' o
fire the Cudahy mansion. bu
he would be a fool who wou
attempt to justify him had h<
done so. I even go further an<
say that if Jack Cudahy wa
aware of those frequent visit
and permitted thenm tacitly, o
openly Lillis can not be justifiei
in any degree whatever in hi
conduct. Even if both husban<
and wife made fools of thoem
selves, was no excuse whateve
for Jere joining the batty bri

Candor simply forces me to
admit that some men do -not
treat their wives quite so. well
after marri'e as they did while
they were mere sweethearts.
When a young man falls in love
with a beautiful, accomplished
and fascinating girl, and .de
cides to win her for his wife, he
at once bursts into full bloom
and gets good at an alarm'ing
degree. Day and night he
thinks of nothing but Laura
Jane. The first rattle out of the
box, he becomes insanely jeal
ous, although he may be Laura
Jane's first and only lover. He
suddenly grows very neat and
particular about his dress and
can make more excuses to acci
dently meet her than a small
boy can for playing hookgy.
When Laura Jane heaves in
sight he breaks out in smiles

The average niarrige is a suc
cess but occasionly you find a
failure. When you do however.
I am willing to bet $100 to $10
that the fault lies almost ex
clusively with the man. The
average young girl who is pret

as a sweetheart, becomes twico
as handsome, tender devoted)

Referring again to the Cudahy
episode. Five sweet (and I am

dren are the fruits of their mar
riage. While admitting a pos
sible wrong on the part of both
husband and wife, no serious
trouble would have ever occured
had there been no such charac
ters as Jere Lillis in existance
male or female. They are the
flies in the ointment. In this
particular instance I am delight
ed to announce that in all pro
bability Jere won't be the cause
of any more separations between
husbands and wives, at least
where he is known. In addi
tion to this, I am in favor of a
national law that will lillisize
every man guilty of debouching
a married wvoman with or with
oTit her consent and believe. it
ought to be enacted.
If the Kansas City story is
correct, and the parties become
reconciled and are re-married,
it is the only sensible course to
pursue. All men and women do
wrong, but that's no reason why
they should either act t he fool
or not repent and rectify thai
wrong. God knows they havt
suffered enough, and when they
do all in their power to atom
foi t he past, the limit of hunar
exertion is at an end. God know
I pity them. and hope and pra:
that the sorrows of the past ma:

they may live a long life of peac
and happiness to atone and mak,
amends for past errors.

Dont you think it will pay you to use high grade fertili
zer? Our 8 4.4 goods is an ideal fertilizer for any crop, on
any land. It takes just as much time and labor and trouble
to haul low grade fertilizer home and then put it in the ground
as it does our 8 4-4. The condition of the crop is the same
and everything is the same, except the results. . The 8 4-4,
will make very much better crops. You can easily tell the
diffrence in crops fertilized with 8-4-4 goods and crops fertilia-{
ed with low grade goods by riding by the cotton field. Good
farmers say that there must be a difference of 300 pounds, of
seed cotton to the acre in the yield of the crop before the - dif
ference can be noticed. The difference in crops fertilized
with .8-4-4 goods, and that fertilized with low grade goods
is so apparant that there must be a difference of 4oo to 500
pounds of seed cotton to the acre, in fact there is frequently
more than this. But call the increase 300 pounds of seed cot
ton to the acre, this means at least ioo poutids of lint cotton
to the acre. The increase of, im pounds of lint cotton was
worth last fall from $13.oo to $15.o, and the increased cost
of the 8-4-4 is less than $3.00 to the acre, which is as little a
should be used. There is your profit. At an increased cow
ot less than $3.00 per acre, you would have increased your
profit last year from $13-00 to $ 5.oo per acre. A number of
farmers in Aiderson county last year who used Andersoa
8-4-4 goods made around $40.00 clean clear profit on an acre
of cotton.
They would not have done this if they had used 200 or
300 pounds of low grade fertilizer to the acre. We have no
way of knowing what cotton will bring another year, but
whether it is high or cheap, the more you make to the acre,
the more profit you will make to the acre. Anderson county
made nore cotton last year than any county east of the Mise
issippi river. Anderson county would not have done this, us
ing 200 or 3oo pounds of low grade fertilizer to the acre. Get
the best guano. Get the right kind of 8-4-4. Get an 8-4-4
that is compou'ded of nitrate of soda, blood, tankage, cotton
i seed meal, and fish scrap. This 8-4-4 is backed up by results
3 and performance. Hoof meal and horn meal run higher in
r ammonia than blood, and will show a higher analysis. But
r the goods made from them will not make the crops that our
i goods make. Our 8-4-4 is made of plant food, and the more
o plant food you put in the ground the faster ynu will build it
up. There are some fertilizers made that will not build up
your land. We like to sell a goods that will make a satisfied
e customer. Our 8 4-4 makes an enthusi.stic customer.
c Whenever a man uses our 8-4-4 he begins to talk up Ander
,son fertilizer. If you want goods of lower analysis we have
- the best goods put in sacks, but remember that the best is the
a cheapest. The nitrate of soda in this 8-4-4 helps you to get
a good stand and then makes the cotton grow off nicely from
the start. A man takes more pride in his crop and his hands
will work it better if it grows off from the start and looks
healthy than if it looks stunted. And then our 8-4-4 helps
the cotton fruit from the ground up--and fruit is what you .are
after. Regarding the corn question we will just remin ys
of this, In 1909 there was a corn contest in this coLnty in
which there were six prizes awarded, and every man whio got
a prize, used Anderson Ferdlizer. "What n'eed~1ivie we of
