maxim, charity begins at home. We li uu

to have a Confucian church in foteim,
lands. A movement is on foot to get tho
Chinese in this country to take ltitrre,.t
in the establishment of a Confucian church
in New York city.
The convictions of Minister Wu on the
subject of reform In China have limn
known for some tlmo. Here is what lm
aid on this matter back in tlWfi:
I think that it will be about live years
before China hasa constitution, jjotnesay
it will be about ten years. No have lud
commissions abroad which make thor
ough Investigations of the constitutions
of the most advanced countries. The
reports of these commissions have hen
studied with .he greatest care. Pre.
llminary measure have been taken for
the adoption of a instrument best suited
to the needs of our people. Wo are not
yet ready for anything of that kind, but
our peoplo learn fast. Thero has been
constituted In Pekln already a body slml
lar to the English House of Lords. This
Is made up of nobility. Then wo are
getting the Assembly together. Some
day these two bodies will be Joined to
gether In a parliament and wu shall then
have a constitutional government.
"The spirit of China Is reform. We are
advancing in every direction. Mark my
words, from now on we shall not
merely make progress that will astound a
Chinese returning to his country after a
long absence but to all thoso having an
interest in my country."
When Wu was asked at that time what
was tho feeling toward tho United States
he said, "Very friendly. Just think what
you aro doing. You are freeing China
from the immenso debt which she in
curred at the time of the Doxcr trouble.
You have championed always our terri
torial integrity. When Secretary Taft

Of all the thieves and crooks that oper
ate In the country the yeggman, or bank
burglar, is tho most cunning and sys
tamatlo, and In the majority of coses
the most desporato. Homo people havo
an idea that a common tramp house
breaker is a yeggmsn. but Out Is far
from the truth. In nine cases out. of ten
jreggmen are intelligent, educated men.
There Is a bond between thm as strong
as that which unites any brotherhood or
union In the country.
Thero are not mora than fifty good
yeggs In tho United .States. To be success
ful the yegg must understand e very llttlo
4etail of tho work, because a slip usually
means a life. Whon a man becomes too
old or Is disabled or for any other cause
cannot remain an active mombor of his
gang ho then instructs tho younger nnd
leasoxperienced memlwrs. In all tho tlmo
that I have been connected with bank
investigations I havo never known of n
oaoe in which one yeggmsn double crossod
fiootherand I don't think that can bo said
any other branch of thlofdom, I will
explain some of the methods used by tho
yeggs, also somo used by tho investigators.
Four or five men usually make up a
gang nnd those gangs are scattered over
the whole country, each having Itsown ter
ritory, For instance, one gang had tho ter
ritory between Allnny nnd Huston on tho
jtosion anil Aiiiany roan, in tnai case
tho memlmrs would Iw scattered out i

looking for a bank or post office which
may lx easily blown. It sometimes takes I
them alx months or oven a year to locate
the job anil got everything in readiness
for tho "touch off." as they call it. One
successful job with those men equals
a great many smsll Inuls that nt her thlovns
When th" Jnh In spot ted the gang is called
together and every detail is gone over
and the plana are mapped out. Each mem
ber looks over the bank and the discussion
of methods sometimes last a week. I onoe
knew of a gang operating In Indiana
who were In doubt about a job and who
sought ndvioe from a gang in Maine.
That probably took three or four weeks.
I mention this to show that they absolutely
will not "turn a trick" if there is the least
doubt about its success.
After tho job is located and their plans
aro settled tho next, thing they do Is to
get tho tools and make their preparations.
Common yellow soap, fuse, caps and
nitroglycerine ore needed. The soop,
fuso and caps are easily obtained at any
hardware or grocery, but the nitro
glycerine is not so easy to get. If no
other method is available it must be
taken out of dynamite sticks, and that
is almost an art in itself, being a very
dangerous process.
For an ordinary shot they take five
flvo pound sticks of dynamite to make
enough nitroglycerine, or "soup, " as they
call it, for tho job. The utensils consist
of two lard cans and a quart whiskey
bottle. The bottom is knocked out of
ono of the lard cans and holes made all
around the sides. A charcoal fire is then
built and tho lard can is then set on it.
Then the other can is filled half full of
water nnd placed on tho first. The water
Is allowed to become lukewarm nnd then
the sticks of dynamite are placed in the
water. The whole affair stands about
six hours.
After that time tho water is allowed
to cool nnd is then strained through
a piece of cheesecloth, after which it is
again allowed to stand. In n short tlmo
the nitroglycerine rises to the surface
and is skimmed off and placed in the bottle.
Tho yeggs call this process "making roup."
Sovernl times it has resulted seriously,
and in one inslanco it led to the capture
of two of tho best men in what was known
as tho K. and T. II, gang.
It happened in this way: I had heard
tho gang was between Princeton. Ind.,atid
Evansvillo, Ind., nnd had been keeping
a lookout for them. Tho bank protective
agencies keep men on the road whose
duty is to keep the head offlco informed
as to what yeggs are in certain localities.

I wason this duty.
I had been over tho pike between Prince
ton and Evansvillo about three times and
was walking from Evansvillo toliabstadt,
along about S o'clock in tho ovoning, when
I noticed two fellows coming down the
railroad track. I did not. pay any par
ticular attention to them until, when they
C.ot near, I noliciMl that ono fellow seemed
to be in trouble, as ho was leaning very
heavily on his rompnnion.
On approaching them I saw that tho
coat, of the Injured man was half puio
and ho wn covered with hlood. His part
ner nsled my help. On examination I
found that, tho man had lost one arm and
his flesh on the same side of his body was
badly lacerated. I told his partner that
it wouldn't do for tho man to walk to

that the man had been struck by a train,

Farmers' organizations all over the
country aro studying the problem of
how farmers can get tbeir products Into
tho homes of consumers without leaving
half or more of tho pecuniary returns
in tho hands of tho middlomen.
In tho West the mattor of cooperation
In marketing farm produce has made good
progtess. Producers are uniting to send
their vegetables and other produce to tho
city, where a man in tho employ of tho
organization distributes the commodities
lo tho retailers. That agent receives n
salary. A great saving has resulted in
most cases in which that plan has boon
tried, the farmers getting more for their
products and the consumer getting his
vegetablos, butter and eggs at a lower
A Colorado fanner In describing the
conditions which formerly existed said:
"I shipped cantaloupes to Denver which
sold in the city for l to a crate., For that,
shipment I leceived less than 50 cents a
crate, out of which I hail to pay 12 cents
for the crate. By the time tho middlemen
got through with my product thoy had
received nearly two-thirds of its value.
I labored from April until August to pro
duce my crop and they handled It in
twenty-four hours,
"One year tho farmers of my com
munity shipped $'.'00,00') worth of canta
loupes, Of this amount tho middlomen
received IlL'O.n'ji) and thn fanners $sn,n:xi.
This Is not only true of cantaloupes, hut
almost every other crop the farmer grows,
whenever tho middle-nen, especially the
commission cinders and th transporta
tion companies, must handle it,
"I shipped tomatoes in baskets con
taining twonty pounds, On tho oity
market thoy brought 75 cents a basket.
The express company and the commis
sion man together received 3H cents,
leaving me si cents not, I being obliged
to pay 10 cents for each basket. The mid
dlemen handled those tomatoes in ono
day. I labored six months to produce
them, besides being obliged to have
lands, fertiliser, tools and many uthir I
things to produce the crop."
