LAst week, the news dispatches dwelt upon the formation-alleged-of a copper trust. The .details of the merger were glven and 'the account of Its formation were more or less ex pllcit. However, there was some doubt as to the accurary of the state ment. In the first place, these are not encouraging days for the forma tion of new trusts and, in the second place, It has been pretty generally un deestood that the existing gentlemen's agreenint among the copper pro ducers. Is ample for all the require ments of the situation. The New York Curb, a financial publication which lnm't over-friendly to the great cop per Interests, ridicules the story. The Curb says: During the week a story was sent out from Duluth that there was to be formed a world-wide copper combina tion. This story stated that a number of Influential copper magnates of Eng land and America are making an in spection tour of the mines in and about Arisona, and it Is stated that a merger Is in progress of the various copper companies of the country. Ed mond Louis do Lastry, vice president of the American Mining congress, said: "I might ps well admit that it Ito true. A great merger of all the Im portant copper interests on the Ameri can continent, I believe, Is about to be formed. Owing to the attitude of the United States government toward the so-called trusts it was deemed wise to have the companies form in London with Baron Rothschild at the head." This reads well, but what will the United States government do to the baron? If it cannot reach him it can reach the local officials, and it is cer tain that the baron has too much sense to array himself against this government. Yesterday W. 1. (orey, who was on the Inspection trip mentioned above, has returned and says: "Trusts are not desirable playthings right now, and for this reason, if for no other, there will be no billlon-dollar copper trust formed. "We have simply been making a tour of our properties In and around Mexico. We Inspected the IIecla, Cal umet and other milnes. There is no consolidation of properties, neither is one contemplated. "Southwestern country seems pros perous, but needs new blood. Strain Is too great for older men, and it even weakens younger ones, but it is the coining country." Today Messrs. Ityan, Agasslz and Foster will leave for New York, while Mr. Corey and the others will go to his hunting lodge in Mlichigan for a week's shooting. DEVOTION. There's a touching "human interest" story told In the press dispatches this morning. It deals with the twelve-year vigil of a devoted daugh ter at the bedside of an afflicted nother. The doctor, twelve years ego, said that the liother should not be left alone for a minute. The daughtir at once assumed the respon etbilit:. of the watch and for twelve Syears she was the consistent attend ant at the call of her mother. Wednes. day, death ended the need for the wigil and the faithful daughter, for the " ert time In the long period that had .apsed after she took up thile burden, *tppeI over the threshhold of her .,,rodql t loipe into the open air, when ... lhe wat out to purchae the mourn , .- to.wear at the funeral of .,: . a'.itdi' whose years of suftterin ' q~l ad .oj Iaie by , .otion. of t 'her faithful daughter. Tihi, of a itself, would constitute a condition sufficilently beautiful to call for praise and for warmest admiration; but the press dispatch adds, as a sort of post mscript, the statement that this daugh ter, during all these years. has sup ported her aged lather, as well as her mother and herself, by needle work. Those of us who think our lots are hard and that many of the pleas ures which should be ours are denied to us, may find satisfaction in the , contemplation of the story of this pa n tient young woman and we may find encouragement in the patience with which she endured her Imposed bur den. After all, comfort is largely a matter of comparison. IN CHICAGO. The wires brought a littlle story from Chicago yesterday which seems Incredible. The dispatch in question n says that eight Chicago business men on Wednesday handled a thousand. - dollar bill without recognising Its a value; seven of them passed it along as a hundred-dollar bill and the eighth deposited It In the bank as - worth that amount. It was the teller In the bank lito discovered the mis take that had been made all day. The Incredible feature of this story is that it is alleged to have happened In Chi cago. Had the scene been laid in Philadelphia we might have believed it. Had the story come from Cincin nati we might have accepted it with out a question. Even if it had been SIn Ot. Louis, we might have swallowed It-though with some reluctance. But, r coming from Chicago, there will always be some question as to the genuine o ness of the yarn. Not that It might . not have happened in the Windy city -all men are liable to mistakes, though Chicago men are not prone to errors of this sort, but it It had hap pened in Chlcago, Chicago would never have permitted the story to leak out. It's a slam at the acuteness of her o business men and a slam Is something that Chicago cannot endure; certain ly she would not be a party to the circulation of such a yarn. Organised shipping and marketing methods are what the Bitter Root or t chard districts need; the steps being. taken to provide these methods e promise much for the future of the valley. o President Taft finds the west de - sirlous of peace and willing to go to d any reasonable extent to get it, which Is a good showing for the section which has been advertised as bellger. ent. The presence of the governor and k his ansociates at the university Is gratifying; it signifies a direct Inter h est which is certain to help. e The new building and loan assocla tion means that a good many people who could not otherwise bulld will be able to have homes of their own.

If I were to be run down in the street I know 'twould be Not y some fancy auto. This would a not be luck's decree. 'Twould be by some garbage wagon that would make a mess of me. It some trust king should come around to give away his loot, And tell me to fill both my trousern' pockets, and then scoot, It would do me no good, for I'd have on a full dress suit. If Jewels were to drop from all the trees and fall like hall, Upon a certain day, and folks should get them by the pall That certainly would be the day that I would be in Jail. If steamboats sold for 10 cents each, I'm very certain when I would go dove to buy one I would find, bhut not 'till then. That some galoot had come along and touched me for my ten. There's no use salting for good luck in bring me In the pelt, SFor if I did I would have been long slne upon the shelf. The only luck I ever had I went and earned myself. The Ruober Canoe. (Prom the Hlckoryville Clarion.) |Having nothing else to do one bright afternoon, Ren Furdy and Hank Wig gins got together and thought out an Invention which would revolutionise water traffic throughout the world. It was nothing more nor less than a rub Sher canoe. They had seen tin canoes, birch canoes, sheet Iron canoes and tveneer canoes, but never a rubber ca noe. The advantage of a rubber ca n noe was that it would not hurt it to get net. Then again when the rubber canoe turned upside down as canoes will, at the most unepected moments, It would not be necessary to turn it r over again. The man who had been g spilled out of the canoe would merely have to jump on it as it lay upside down In the water, turn It Inside out and go an his way rejoicing. They could see almost as many ad vantages to the ru ber canoes as to the g rubber hot water hag, the rubber nurs Ing bottle. the rubber automatic tire, the rubber suspenders or the rubber r collar, and so they got down to work a 'with a will. Within the fortnight the first rubber canoe had been completed, and the two inventors started from Hickoryville up the river to Peavey . Junction In it. ThTy paddled as hao,'y as two school h boys, but they noticed that the pad. dling was hard. They were obliged to div In for all they were worth to make any headway at all. It sometimes a seemed as though they were at a standstill. Finally. after several hours of terrible exertion, they reachdd Paints, Oils and Varnish By Fr.derlo J. Haskin. The international convention of the Paint, Oil and Varnish Dealers' asso clation, which opens in Richmond, Va., today, will conslder matters affecting the Interest of every householder. The manufacture of paint in the United States Is a rapidly-growing industry, which has trebled Its value within the past quarter of a century. The paint manufacttres in this country last year approximated $70,000,000 In value, and nearly $50,000,000 .worth of material was utilized in Its production. Amer ican ready-mixed paint is known throughout the world, so that a con siderable proportion of our manue factured products went to foreign countries. On the other hand, the United States imports a large quan tity of ready-mixed paint as well as the crude material for its meInu facture. The consumption of paint In the United States Is greater than that of any other country In the world. The past year has been bad for the paint trade In the United States, chiefly because tile linseed oil supply fell short and the price of turpentine was so high. The shortage of linseed oil has been becoming more acute for several years. Tile advance in the selling price of paint has been made by tile manufacturers reluctantly. In many cases they hlave lost money on the bulk of the sales during the past two years. Even now the prices of Ipaint are bused on il at 75 cents per gallon, whereas most of the paint now on hand contains oil which cost the dealer from 80 cents to $1.05 per gal lon. Thills is tile paint which must be sold for present consulmption, so no matter hlow much tile price of linseed oli may fail during tile next six months that used for the paint now ill hand cost thile manufacturer a good price. Present estimates for the current year's American flax crop range from 18,000,000 to 20,000,000 bushels. This will not be available until December or January. Canada will probably supply 5,000,000 or 6,000,000 bushels iore of flax seed, bringing tile total slupply up to nearly 25,000,000 bushels before February or March, after which linseed from Argentina will be avail able. Just how onuch seed will be produced in that country is not yet known. Large as those figures sound, they do not indicate a sufficient sup ply for the demands of tile paint and varnilsh trade, when it is taken into consideration that nearly ialf of the linseed oil available is used for thile manufacture of Ilnoleums Instead of paint and varnish. The need of a larger supply of lin seed oil is thus being felt keenly by every person connected with tile paiInt and varnish trade. At the convention of the International Association of Master Housepainters and Decorators passtIed asking for the abatement of the tariff on linseed oil and flaxseed, I and also urging a campaign of educa Stion through the department of agrl I culture as to the need of extending the r cultivation of flax throughout this country. Since a bushel of flax seed yields only onc anad a rjuurter gallons Peavy Junction and jumped out on the dock. As soon as they landed on the dock they looked down at the water to see their canoes, and it had disap peared. It was a deep, dark mystery, but the explanation came later. It seems that shortly after they left Hickoryville the I stern of the rubber boat had caught on a snag and held. The paddling mas very hard, for they were merely stretching the oade out. Neither had had time to look back They had man aged, by strenuous paddling, to stretch the canoe out until the front end of it reached the Peavy Junction dock. When they had Jumped out the canoe had snapped back four miles to the snag, where it was later found float it ng peacefully on the water. Going te Iohool. By gum, I hate to go to school, I'd almost ruther be a fool. I got to set in there all day When I ort to go out and play. I think it Is a doggone bluff To make us learn a lot of stuff Which we ain't never goln' to use. Just look at all the time we lose Who cares if Nero burned tip Rome, Of if Bill Bhakespeare wrote a pome, Or if the world is round or flat? I don't and I will tell you that. I have to get licked every day, It somehow seems to come that way. If some kid don't perform the trick, t The teacher does it m ith a stick. And when the teacher licks m~e bad I always get one more from dad. There's nearly always somethin' wrong Right from the first tap of the gong. There ain't no peace for any kid Who goes to school as I have did. It makes me stubborn as a mewl, By gum, to have to go to school.

No adequate or satisfactory sub stitute for linseed oil in the manu t facture of paints has been found, al r though other materials are being sub I stituted by unscrupulous dealers. Corn I oil, fish oil, China wood oil and pine oil are all extensively psed, but, like I all substitutes, each lacks the peculiar iquality of the real article. The fish I oil made from the Menhadden herring I is now being extensively advertised in 3 the paint trade magazines. It is very ; much better than it formerly was be I cause of new methods used In its manufacture. Menhadden oil is now made from the fresh fish and, there L fore, does not have the rancid, fishy odor which made it objectionable un 3 der the old process, whereby the fish were allowed to decompose before the oil was taken. This is an animal oil, a however, and therefore differs in its I chemical composition from the linseed r oil. I Linseod oil has beeltn used for more 3 than 200 years in paint manufacture. I It is the only oil which can be abso I lutely depended upon to dry hard and t solid without evaporation. It is this f quality which permits the mixing of roil Iwith varnish, and the two com c bined will cement together, forming t a perfect, Impervious coating for wood c - or iron. Corn oil has many properties a resembling linseed ,oi and is believed by some to be the best substitute, but t I as yet is not being produced in any I large quantity. China wood, or tung I oil, is now extensively used in combi I nation with linseed oil and the oil of the soya bean, a product of Siberia, is t also utilized in the paint manufacture. Almost equally important to the I painter is the supply of turpentine r which is also each year growing more V inadequate. There is no way to re- 1 s store the forests of long-leafed pine Iwhich once were so abundant in this country and from which the supply of h turpentine must come. It is stated that at the present rate of corlsump e tion the supply of turpentine from i these trees will not continue more than 1.15 years. During the past year, the Sprice of turpentine advanced nearly + d 50 per cent and the question of a sub o stitute for it will be disdussed at the e present convention. e Aside from the turpentine and oil, f the color ingredients of the paints are an important consideration, A first - class paint factory now employs the Y highest scientific slill in the selection t of its materials. The staff of em i ployes will include geologists, mining f engineers, metallurgists, chemfcal en s gineers and chemists. Electrical and f mechanical engineers are employed In , the mining, milling and transporta tion of the. lead and zinc ores from the mines to the smelters, where ana a lytical chemists or assayers pas .upon i lts quality.

First, the natural pigments, which, after mechanical treatment, including cleaning and dry ing, are ready for use. Second, pig ments made directly from the ores of valuable minerals. Third, chemically treated pigments, consisting of prod ucts which pass through metallurgical or chemical processes in their prepa ration for use. The first class Includes ochre, um her, sienna and the three ores of Iron, hemilate, siderite and lmerite. These Are the most important phases of me tallic paints. Other minerals include asbestos and it| derivitives, asphalt, barytes, silico a d tale. The second class includes zinc, leaded zincs and sublimated white lead and sublimated blue lead. The third, or chemically prepared colors, Includes carbonic white lead, litherage, red lead Vene tian red and others. There Is much difference In the en during qualities of p.tints made by the I different processes and several experi ments are now going on in this con I nection, the results of which will be t of great value to the country. The American Society for Testing Ma r terlals is making a series of tests for white paints. These include the seven r varieties best recognised by the trade. i Each of them is mixed with raw oil to which is added a ilven quantity of lead and manganese dryer. Sufficient oil Is supplied to givq a standard vis cosity. The results of these tests will be of value to the paint trade as well as to the individual painter in deter s mining what process of manufacture r of white pigment is best suited to a I specific purpose. Last year a test fence was erected I at the state fair grounds at Nashville, i Tenn., on which were exhibited 4( samples of white paint mixed with oil r other than linseed. Soya bean oil, corn oil, resin oil, wood teurpentine and pine oil were among thdso most used. It is tlhought that this fence will interest the farmners in the grow p ing of flax and other oil-bearing Sseeds. In case the pine oil test proves wl'orthy, it may encourage southern a manufacturers to produce it, The New Jersey Painters' association has pro. ` vided a similar test fence at New Brunswick. 1 There is much agitation in different states in regard to paint adulterations - Last April the Allen paint bill was z passed in Pennsylvania, which re quired that the full formula of the oomposition.of all paints and varnishel must be printed upon the cans or kegs In which they are sold. North Da. i hots has pas ..e e, similar law, anItl other states have the matter under consideration. These ,equirements will unquestionably raise the standard of ready mixed paints. They will also raise the price, since the material used in good paints is becoming increasingly expenslve. A writer in a paint trade magasine claims that the day for cheap, ready-mixed paint is past.'This will doubtless be a blow to many a housewife who has been accustomed to buying a can of paint for a few cents and herself touching up unsight ly corners about the house. Many master painters have felt that the great trade in ready-mixed paints which has developed in the past few years has lessened their work, since, with the ready-mixed paint at his dis posal, many an amateur felt able to at tempt painting jobs which would have been beyond his ability if he had to mix his own paints. Now, however, many master painters themselves use the prepared paints of reliable firms, because those firms, by the employ ment of skilled scientists, have re duced paint mixing to a science, and the labor saved in preparing it in great quantities makes it economical even to the professional painter. Thought for Today New Education. By Mrs. Robert M. LaFollette. The national bureau of education in a bulletin on American schoolhouses says: The rapid growth of modern cities suggests that in the near future radi cal changes must be made in the selection of school locations. The in creasing values assigned to land near congested centers will of necessity limit the school grounds to the smallest possible space and tend to inforce the construction of taller buildings. With Luch restrictions in the size of school lots the danger of fire will be greater, while noises, dustl and dirt will, in all probability, increase proportionately." The author suggests that it would be an enormous gain hygienically and might be more economical in actual cost it cities were to locate their school buildings in the country and furnish free transportation to. them. Does not the idea grip you? And why not apply it further? Looking out of the windows of a train as it leaves a great city with its rows of ugly, houses, high apartment buildings, back -views of slums and tenements and visions of little chilIren growing up. without air and light and earth, essential to health and happiness and development, how amazing to sud denly *merge into the open country 'with limitless space for happy homes that would be flooded with air and sunshine, and land so cheap everyone might have a garden. How needless, how like a bad dream seems the dreadful congestion of the city, like dying of thirst with sparkling water near by, like a famine with abundance of food within reach. Hotseing and transportation may be hard economic problems to solve, but city congestion is a breeding place of disease and crime. Can a question of arteet oar service, sanitary schooling, healthful homing, compare in diffi culty with caring for sickness, pauperism, vagrancy, crime, resulting from city crowding? Ultimately the state has to pay, why not grapple with the cause instead of the consequence, INTOXICATION TABOOED. Washington, Oct. 5.-Apparently In toxication is coming to be regarded as a much more serious offense among officers of both army and navy. It was announced at the war department today that President Taft had con firmed the sentence of dismissal In the case of four of the West Point cadets recently convicted of Intoxica tion. , He commuted the sentence of four others to confinement in the bar racks and gymnasium until May 81, next: The chiprits meanwhile will serve punishment tours every Wednes day and Saturday.
