A. Lightning Rod Revival.
The following article is published at
the request of J. A. Wetter, agent for
lightning arresters:
The lightning rod man may be
happy, for the Ohio state fire marshal
has come out plumply in favor of his
industry. In his report on losses by
lightning in his state he says- In
reply to an inquiry about a lightning
fire the secretary of a mutual company
having $5,233,000 at risk said: "In
my seven years' connection with this
asociation as an officer we have not
had one loss to a rodded building by
An insurance company which ranks
in the first half dozen in amount of in
surance carried on farm buildings in
Ohio in a circular to agents says that
losses from lightning in the United
States have increased five per cent a
year for the last ten years that it is
unfair to insure barns at the rate? for
dwellings that higher rates on barns
and stock are a necessity that a
proper rod or conductor will reduce if
not prevent loss from electricity that
rates on country buildings not so pro
tected will be advanced and the time
is not far distant when all companies
will charge a higher rate on unrodded
property.Spokane Chronicle.
Whenever a horse runs away from
any cause whatsoever and plays hob
in the sreets, it is the invariable rule
to lay all of the blame on the dumb
beast who can never defend himself.
Even the owner of the animal, how
ever much he may be attached to it, is
almost always inclined to cover up
his own part in the matter by crying
out against "that fool horse."
The horse, however, has at last
found a friend and champion. This
man has made a personal investiga
tion of 1,000 runaways and in con
siderably over half of all of them he
has proved that the drivers or owners,
and not the animals, were primarily
to blame. -For no less than 308 of the
accidents, broken traces, reins, bits
or saddle girths or loss of driving
reins were responsible. In 155 cases
some part of the buggy or wagon
broke as a direct result of the negli
gence of the man. In 92 cases the
horse was left unhitched on a street.
In all of these 545 cases, therefore,
owner and not animal was clearly to
Automobiles and motorcycles were
the causes of 178 runaways railway
trains and trolley cars of 130 fire
works, flying paper and fire engines,
of 49 and other runaways of 70. In
none of these cases can the horse be
held much to blame, for human oeings
themselves are by no means without
fear of swiftly flying machines of all
of the kinds enumerated.
People will, of course, continue to
blame runaway accidents on their
horsesit would not be human nature
not to shift the responsibility onto
those who cannot defend themselves
but it is to be hoped that, for the sake
of the good name of the most faithful
servant of man which a puffing, toot
ing, noisily exlplosive machine is try
ing to drive to the boneyard, some
one will seek out and make public the
real causes of all runaways.Duluth

This is not likelythat the Standard
Oil company will be fined $30,000,000
under the conviction at Chicago on
1,463 counts of an indictment for vio
lation of the Elkins anti-rebate law.
But suppose the court does inflict the
maximum penalty, will any reasoning
being believe that the oil monopoly
will be destroyed, or even seriously
injured, by the sentence? John D.
Rockfeller, who says he is only a
small holder of Standard stock, can

But some who should have a machine do
not have the ready cash and all may not un
derstand that this isn't necessary in the pur
chase of the best separators.
Others who have a small amount of cash are
tempted to put it into some trashy cash-in
advance machine because they cannot im
mediately command the full amount neces
sary to buy a DE LAVAL.
But there is no such necessity. More than
200,000 of the 600,000 users of DE LAVAL,
machines have practically let their machines
earn their own cost, which they have done
the first year and have kept on doing every
year since.
If you have the ready cash of course there
is a liberal discount for it. But if not, any
reputable buyer may secure a DE LAVAL
machine on such liberal terms that it actu
ally means the machine paying for itself.
