Yanxce Aids to Luxurious Camping.
The days are past when men from
homes of luxury are willing to do
what the pioneers of the west called
"hitting the grit with a blanket and
£ rifle.” While here and there will be
tfound heroic, independent souls, ac
customed to the best things of the
creature life, who do fairly revel in
,the bare necessities of the cruise, the
great majority of the out-door enthu
siasts of this day demand the latest
luxuries. And the Yankee, as might
be expected, says James A. Cruik
shauk, in Recreation, is well to the
fore in providing novel implements for
the outdoor life. In the number of
new inventions, th-ir wonderful utility
and compactness and lightness, no na
tion is within hail of our own. This
is not an idle boast; it is fully sup
ported by the adoption of these new
devices into the regular equipment of
the military troops of the leading na
tions of the world. Than this no
higher compliment could be paid. That
wonderful palace car of the wilds, the
canoe, is now made by white men in
Maine better than the Indian ever
made it; the Indian himself says so.
He wrill oven choose a canvas-covered
Maine canoe for a long cruise in pref
erence to one of birch bark. It is no
little thing for the Yankee to have
achieved this signal triumph over a
people renowned for their wonderful
skill in the art of canoe building.
Our Fire Losses.
Speaking of big expenditures, both
actual and possible, there are some
suggestions in connection with the
enormous fire loss in this country. In
round figures, about $400,000,000 worth
of property in the United States went
up in smoke in 1906. To be sure, the
California earthquake and fire com
bined swelled the total to these for
bidding proportions. But it is gener
ally admitted that much more of our
possessions are burned than should
be the case. The record shows the
vast drain on the national resources.
Much of this could be stopped by
proper care. Men speak of the mam
moth dimensions of the Panama canal
and other great projects under way.
Yet, says Troy Times, the fire loss of
last year represented a sum which
would have constructed the Panama
canal more than twice over and would
have left many millions to be advan
tageously employed in deepening riv
ers and harbors and constructing
channels valuable for commercial uses
or devoted to other objects equally
beneficial to the public. A'large part
of that fire loss represented as abso
lute waste as would have been the
burning of so much money.
At Foreign Hotels.
Hot water is not “laid on” (piped)
at foreign hotels. If you hear a gentle
tap on the door in the morning, you
may interpret it as meaning that a
copper ewer of hot water has just
been set down outside for your per
sonal use. If you order a bath, it will
be prepared for you accordingly, and
a sweet-voiced maid will give you no
tice when it is ready. You are not
expected to operate the water valves
at all, and it is doubtful you would
succeed if you tried. Prom a variety
of vacant rooms at a hotel shown you,
you select the one you prefer, with a
definite agreement as to price.. You
are not required to accept humbly and
thankfully, in blind faith, whatever
room the clerk deigns to assign you,
as in America. It is expected, how
jever, says Travel Magazine, that you
will order your breakfasts at the ho
tel, being free to get your other meals
■elsewhere, if you prefer. Electric light
iswitches are not commonly turned on
by a push button or a flat key, as in
jour buildings, but by a small brass
lever. Many of the best hotels have
a reading light in the headboard of
•each bedstead.
Out in Missouri a man under a 12
years’ sentence for murder has just
been pardoned after a year's imprison
ment because of conclusive proof that
he is entirely innocent of the crime.
He may, perhaps, consider himself
!lucky in getting out after a year, but
what recompense can a state make
for having inflicted such a wrong on
an innocent man? asks the Indianapo
lis Star. Money would not repay
him for the injury, but it would at
least be an acknowledgment that a
debt was due. In view of the fre
quency with which such things hap
pen a law should exist in every state
providing for such compensation.
The New England man who believes
that life may be prolonged indefinite

evidently does not know that many
people would rather die than be doom

be too much like eating crow.

Kane County, III., Federation of Wom
en's Clubs Has Novel Plan of
Preserving Historic Feat
ures of Highways.
Aurora, 111.—The most novel means
to build a public highway in Illinois
has been taken by the Kane County
Federation of Women's clubs. Re
cently not less than 1,000 silver spoons,
valued at §2 each have been sold to
improve and to preserve certain his
toric features of the roadway lying
along the Fox river from Aurora as
far north as Elgin and Carpentersville.
The Kane county women have been
working on this project for over a
year, but it has only been within the
last few weeks that they hit on the
novel plan of raising the money with
which to carry out their plans which
are intended to benefit the whole
i ne work ox preserving landmarks
and beautifying lands abutting on the
roadways was commenced in the fall
of 1905, when they interested the
farmers to the extent of inducing them
to keep their weeds cut down. Then
the women engaged a landscape man
and drove him over the route, the re
sult of which was that he drew up
an elaborate plan calculated to estab
lish and maintain one of the most at
tractive driveways in the state.
After this came the project of rais
ing the money. Rich men, automobile
owners, drivers oi blooded stock, were
appealed to, but subscriptions came
few and far between. During the
most of the last summer there was
nothing done that led the women
workers to hope for the consumma
tion of the project.
Then one of the Aurora women
broached the project. She suggested
that the fund be started by selling
silver spoons of a special design.
Then the women workers got their
heads together in working out a de
sign. At the start it. was determined
that a leading feature in the design
should be a good likeness of old Chief
Shabbona, who thousands of times
had passed over the trail now marked
by the roadway sought to be improv
ed. The name of Shabbona is an hon
ored one in Illinois. To the white
settler of pioneer days Shabbona was
a friend indeed. History recites that
he saved settlements from massacre
and in many other ways so endeared
himself to the white people that they
revere his memory unto this day.
They named a town for him, and
erected a fine monument at his grave.
Shabbona's likeness has been made
to appear in the bowl of the spoon
and the artist has done some clever
work on other portions of the sou
venir. The stem is made to represent
ane of the predominating woods of
the Fox valley, on the spreading end
of the stem there is a pretty view
af the valley, and at the tip is the
crouching form of a fox. emblematic
of the historic river and valley along
pnd through which the roadway
courses its way.
A New York silversmith was given
| the task of producing the spoons. At
' first only 500 were ordered, but the
spoons began selling like the tradi
tional hot cakes. Where at first it
was next to impossible to stir up any
interest in the project, people in all
of the towns, including Aurora, Ba
tavia, Galena, St. Charles, and Elgin,
began buying spoons for themselves
and for presents. The local clubs of
all the towns kept the matter hum
ming. and by this time, could old
Shabbona come back from the happy
hunting grounds, where he has been
sleeping for IS winters, he would find
that his likeness in white metal has
been carried to almost every state
in the Union, where spoons have been
sent by remembering friends.
Inclosed in each box with a spoon is
a bit of history, which reads as fol
"Shabbona, the Indian chief whose'
picture adorns the bowl of the Fox
river valley souvenir spoons, wras
probably the most conspicuous Indian
among the many who made their
homes in the beautiful Fox river val
ley before the advent of the white
man. He was born in Canada about
1780, of the Ottawa tribe. He mar
ried the daughter of a Pottawatomie
chief, and, according to the custom
of the Indians to adopt the tribe of the
wife, he became a Pottawatomie. He
was known as 'the white man's friend,’
saved many from massacre, particu
larly during the Black Hawk war in
1852. He died at Seneca, 111., July 18,
1859, and is buried in Evergreen ceme
terv, Morris 111., where a monument
w-as erected to his memory.”
The success that has attended tbit
novel venture in road building is high'
)y gratifying, not only to the worner
workers who originated the scheme,
but to thousands of people of Illinois
who love its historic traditions and
who glory in the romantic character
of its river scenery.
Divorce Prize at Card Party.
Findlay, O.—A free divorce, a load
of crushed stone, a monkey-wrench
a ton of coal, a meal ticket and thd
free services of a blacksmith to shoe
a horse, were the prizes awarded at l
card party given here by the City Fed
eration of Women’s clubs. A free fun
eral was offered as a prize by an un
dertaker, but it was declined. John
Shaffer, a business man, won the
prize offered by a lawyer, his free
services in obtaining h divorce. Mrs.
Charles Kirk won the load of crushed
stone, and Mrs. Joseph Kegg, who has
no horse, the free horseshoeing. The
proceeds of the card party will be de
voted to civic improvements.
Reflection from Ore Deposits.
German observers recorded as long
ago as 1747 that a luminous emanation
of variable shape will appear in the
dark at points on the surface of the
earth below which there are extensive
ore deposits. Immediately before or
during a thunderstorm these phenom
ena are said to be especially striking.
Similar observations have more re
cently been made in North America
in the neighborhood of ore deposits.
The electric emanation given off from
the surface of the earth has been re
peatedly ascertained photographically.

Mother Tells Governor Remarkable
Story of Close Resemblance.
Annapolis, Md.—Claiming that her
son was wrongly convicted because
3f his close resemblance to a clever
sneak thief, the mother of Joseph
Leury has appealed to Gov. Warfield
to release him from the state peni
tentiary, where he has served feur
The woman said her son was so
nearly a counterpart of a thief named
3ohen that even she could hardly
distinguish them apart. She charged
that Cohen's crimes had repeatedly
got her boy into trouble. Records in
Philadelphia and Baltimore were
looked up and indicated that Leury
had been arrested 26 times on two
charges alone, but had generally been
icquiUcd or tne prosecution had been
abandoned. Mrs. Leury claimed it
was proven in several instances that
Cohen was the real offender.
Leury formerly lived in PbUadel
phia, but moved to Baltimore, his
mother said, on account of the trou
ble caused him by his resemblance
to Cohen, but the latter followed him.

He is at the Head of the Things
That Are Good for the
Town and Your
(Copyright, by Alfred C. Clark.)
The above head is a subject that
can well be treated as open for dis
cussion and consideration at any and
all times. It is also a subject that
should interest all persons who have
at heart the welfare of the community
in which he lives and who wishes to
see it grow and prosper.
No person can afford to do what he
knows will work an injury to the com
munity in which he lives. In justice
to himself he cannot refuse his sup
port to the home industries that are
striving for existence and the welfare
of the town in which he goes to do his
In considering this question it
should be borne in mind that the coun
try people, like all other American
citizens, are always on the lookout for
a place to invest their money that
will bring them the biggest returns
for the least expenditure; in this they
are right and are justified in so doing,
but, at the same time they should re
member that they are dependent on
the home merchant for the money that
they send to foreign markets.
If they should stop to think how
these catalogue houses are operated,
and look into, and know, the true con
dition of affairs, probably they would
reconsider the stand they had taken
toward them. In many cases the peo
ple are ignorant of the true surround
ings and inside operations of these
concerns and think they are doing
right in sending them their money.
They are led to believe that what they
get from the catalogue house is the
same article that the home merchant
sells, only at a much lower price. The
majority of the people do not know
that they are buying the cheapest
article that can be manufactured and
[ be turned down by the seller of these
articles when he wants anything in
the merchant’s line. He should be the
first one to be consulted when the
farmer intends buying. He should be
seen and arrangements made for the
purchase of the article, if he does not
carry it in stock.
The home merchant advertises or
should advertise, in the home paper.
This keeps the home paper in the field
and helps the community along. The
people take the home paper because
it gives all the local news that they
cannot get any other way and thus the
advertisements of the merchants are
read by them. If the people do not
patronize the home merchant he can
not afford to advertise, and without
advertising a paper will soon prove a
failure. Soon the home paper is sent
to the wall for the want of support
from the merchants; it may have a
large circulation, but without, the mer
| chant’s help it will soon be lost to
sight. Then the merchant is next to
get out of business for the want of
support, and the town will decrease in
population, and the people will won
der what the trouble is when the
editor and the merchant leave town
The home merchant contributes to
the support of the church, he pays
his taxes to keep the schools up, he
contributes to the horse show, the fall
festival, and the hundred and one
things that he is supposed to help out
and give his support to. He is at the
head of the list for everything that is
for the good of the community and he
deserves the honest and hearty co
operation of all the people, all the
time, that are interested in the wel
fare of the community in which they
live. The merchant helps to elect the
men that are to represent them in the
city, county, state and national af
fairs, and he is ever on the go looking
to the interests of the people.
The people like to be entertained
and they will come many miles to
some amusement given by the mer
chants of the town where they are
ever ready to go to sell their farm
products. The merchant cannot give
these entertainments unless he has
the support of the people and it is not
fair to expect this of the men that are
striving for a livelihood, when the peo
ple send their money to a concern in
some far away city that will neither
contribute to any of these enterprises

It's a Shell Game—You Pay Your Money Without Knowing What You Are
Going to Get.
that they are in reality paying more
for an inferior grade of goods than
those sold by the home merchant,
which probably cost them a few cents
, Since the catalogue house has
sprung into the commercial world and
begun operations in the United States,
all kinds of schemes have been tried
and worked to get the money from
the people that are always looking for
bargains. No expense has been spared
in their struggle for the almighty dol
lar of the country people, and they
have been so far successful, at the
great expense of the home town of the
people that sent their money to these
Magazines have been started for
the sole benefit of the catalogue house,
and these circulated among the coun
try people at ten or 15 cents a year.
They build up a circulation on this
low price of hundreds of thousands;
this circulation brings to them mil
lions of dollars in advertising from the
catalogue houses and this money ex
pended for advertising is more than
doubled from the sales of these con
cerns to the country people who are
losers by the transaction.
Catalogues are sent out telling the
people that the house from which they
came is the cheapest place in the
country to buy, and it is, if the person
receiving this catalogue wants a cheap
article, not only in price, but also in
make and material. The farmer re
ceives this catalogue, looks it over,
and after reading the well composed
guarantee or assurance that the goods
described in it are the very best that
can be found anywhere, sends in an
order. The house receives the order
and immediately ships the articles
wanted. The ^farmer drives many
miles to get them and when the box is
opened it is found to contain some
thing much below his expectations,
but this does not satisfy his mind on
the fact that he has been duped and
that he is not getting his full money
value. In a second order he may be
treated the same as the first one, but
still he may think that he has saved
money by buying it where he could
get it cheap.
At the same time the merchant at
home has the goods on the shelf In
his store waiting for them to be taken
away so that he can replace them with
newer goods, thereby keeping his
stock fresh and up-to-date. If he has
not the article wanted he can order it
from the wholesaler or manufacturer
and it will be sent to the purchaser
in as good condition and short time
as if it had been ordered from a cata
logue house. The home merchant's
business must be kept up and in order
to do this it is absolutely necessary
that the people at home patronize
him and help him keep up with the
times, or else he will soon be out of
the struggle for existence among the
country people.
The home merchant should not be
expected to pay the highest price for
produce and farm products and then
or take an interest in the surround
ings thereof.
Home trading makes home indus
tries, brings more to the town and
keeps them there, and it helps to build
up the place. But the town will be at
a stand-still so long as the people per
sist in this way of robbing the home
merchants of the right to live and do
business among them.
If the people will keep their money
at home there will be no need for
complaint. The place will assume a
lively air, it will take on a metropoli
tan look, and the people will say to
their neighbor that business is good,
and it will be, as long as the people
continue to trade in the home mar
kets. The least that a person can do
toward the betterment of the com
munity and his own interests, is to
keep the money at home and see to it
that it is put where it is most needed
and wanted.
This should be a vital question to
all concerned in the welfare of his
community and it should be an estab
lished rule that one should not seek
for things in other parts that he can
get at home.
Retort Courteous.
The world is full of women who can
amuse the ordinary man. They can
sing, dance or recite in a manner most
pleasing, but the poor man often goes
begging for a woman who can sew on
buttons or mend his clothes; who can
cook his food with economy and flavor
to his taste.—San Augustine Vidette.
Miss Myrtle Loggins, the charming
editor of the Vidette, can make the
average man out hunting for a wife
imagine he is being entertained by
an angel, whether he does his court
ing in the kitchen or in the parlor.
Those east Texas girls have a wonder
ful knack for flavoring a man’s life
to suit his taste, whether he be rich
or poor.—Houston Post.
Origin of “Helpmeet.”
“Helpmeet” has had a curious his
tory which began with the biblical
account of the creation, when “the
Lord God said, It is not good that
the man should be alone; I will make
him an help meet for him.” That is
to say, a fit assistant. Rut the two
words hove become curiously combin
ed into a “helpmeet,” and they are
constantly used as one. Moreover,
the confusion is increased by the cor
ruption of the words into “help-mate,”
and Macaulay writes of the waiting
woman who was “generally consider
ed as the most suitable help mate for
a parson.”
Clever French Imitation.

its place.
