Much Wasted Money.
The economic Importance of paleon tology has been repeatedly shown in this country. In the earlier exploita tion of anthracite coal thousands of dollars were fruitlessly expended In New York in search of coal beds until the New York geologists showed that the beds jn that state could contain, no coal. The fossils in the New York rocks exploited are of Devonian age, whereast the fossils of the Pennsyl vanian anthracite coal beds belong to the Carboniferous, a much later pe riod. This discovery at once stopped a useless expenditure of money. Welcome Each Rebuff. It is said that unless the clay Is well pounded, no pitcher can be made.

Acknowledge Errors. Exemption from mistake is not the privilege of mortals; but when our mistakes are involuntary, we owe each other every candid considera tion; and the man who, on discover ing his errors, acknowledges and cor rects them, is scarcely less entitled to our esteem than if be had not erred.

IFedleirsil Iiracrpjiiiry on9 3 Faced by demands from the conductors, engineers, firemen and brakemen that would impose on the country an additional burden in transportation costs of $100,000,000 a year, the railroads propose that this wage problem be settled by reference to an impartial Federal tribunal. With these employes, whose efficient service is acknowledged, the railroads have no differences that could not be considered fairly and decided justly by such a public body. Railroads Urge Public Inquiry and Arbitration The formal proposal of the railroads to the employes for the settlement of the controversy is as follows: "Our conference have demonstrated that we cannot harmonize our difference of opinion and that eventually the matters in controversy must be passed upon by other and disinterested agencies. Therefore, we propose that your proposals and the proposition of the railway be disposed of by one or the other of the following methods: 1. Preferably by submission to the Interstate Commerce Commission, the only tribunal which, by reason of its accumulated information bearing on railway conditions and its control of the revenue of the railways, is in a poi- . tion to consider and protect the rights and equities of all the interests affected, and to provide additional revenue necessary to meet the added cost of operation in case your proposals are found by the Commission to be just and reasonable; or, in the event the Interstate Commerce Commission cannot, under existing laws, act in the premises, that we jointly request Congress to take such action as may be necessary to enable tjtc Commission to consider and promptly dispose of the questions involved; or ' 2. By arbitration in accordance with the provisions of the Federal law" (The tsewlsnds Act). Leaders Refuse Offer and Take Strike Vote Leaders of the train service brotherhoods, at the j2nt conference held in New York, June 1-15, refused the offer of the railroads to submit the issue to arbitration or Federal review, and the employes are now voting on the question whether authority shall be given these leaders to declare a nation-wide strike. The Interstate Commerce Commission is proposed by the railroads as the public body to which this issue ought to be referred for these reasons: No other body with such an intimate knowledge of railroad conditions has such an unquestioned posi tion in the public confidence. The rates the railroads may charge the public for transportation are now largely fixed by this Govern ment board. Out of every dollar received by the railroads from the public nearly one-half is paid directly to the em A Question For the Public to Decide The railroads feel that they have no right to grant a wage preferment of $100,000,000 a year to these employes, now highly paid and constituting only one-fifth of all the employes, without a clear mandate from a public tribunal th-A shall. determine the merits of the case after a review of all the facts. The single issue before the country is whether this controversy is to be settled by am impartial Government inquiry or by industrial warfare. 1 National Conference Committee of the Railways ELISHA LEE, Chairman H.

Clayton, ' 2T, 1903 The Adjustable Knife Weeder has been in use by the farmers of Graham county during the past fifteen years. It is made to take one row, or two rows, or three rows, the first time over, on all crops plant ed with the lister. It is all steel and iron, except the connecting plank. It is the lightest weeder made, and also the strongest, built to last a life time. It pulls lighter than any other kind of a weeder. The knives can be adjusted to any desired position. The knives can be reversed, doubling their usefulness. The connecting plank rests on rollers, at both ends, reducing the side friction. The weight of the driver can be shiited to suit conditions. The steel runners are easily replaced, if they should ever wear out. The V" hitch controls the machine perfectly. Its open construction gives it light weight. Its complete system of bracing makes it extra strong. The knives can be kept sharp cheaper than you can buy oil and grease for wheels and dies. It has no boxing nor spindles to wear out. It does away with costly repair bills. . It will get the weeds at any stage of their grouth. It does perfect work in heavy weeds that no other weeder can handle. 11 It leaves the ground in the best of condition for any succeeding cultivation. It does not throw the soil away from the corn. It does not pitch the dirt up to the center of the ridge, and make your horses lame to walk on it the next time over. '.",' It does not roll the dirt over and over, to lose its moisture in a dry time. It leaves the row in better shape, and the ridge in better shape, than any other machine made. It is not only a weeder, but a cultivator as well. Even if you have no weeds, it will do better work "the first time over" than any other machine. It is the right thing in the right place for "the first .time over" in all listed crops. It was invented by a Graham county farmer fifteen years ago, and now a small factory, equipp ed with special machinery, is making them at Hill City. It is manufactured and sold by H. D.
