Spence, a detective, employed by a Chicago agency,- has returned to that city after securing inder.tiflcalions of two pictures which ha had in his pos session, supposed to be photographs of the faou3 Montana bandit and train robber, Harvey Logan. Early on tha morning of June 8. a gang held up the Denver and Rio Grande train near Paraichute. Colo., but after blowing two safes, and shooting one railroad em ploye, they secured only ten dollars. A posse of cowboys was at once organ ized, and chase was giyen. In the chase one of the bandits w;-.s shot from h'i horse, by a cowboy and as soon as he fell, "he was seen to shoot himself through the head. Picture were taken of the dead man. It w.is believed that the photographs were those of Logan and Spence came here to identify the bandit, through the jail officials, 'where Logan had teen con fined over a year. Phei'iff Fox, from whom Logan es caped, positively identified the photo graphs of those of Logan. So did Jailer Thomas Bell, whom Loan held up at the point cf a pisiol while es caping from the jail. The outstand ing rewards for the bandit are vari ously estimated between" $18,000 and $30!00"0. It is probable that the re mains will be -exhumed and further identification established, as Logan had many bullet marks on his body. "When he escaped from theKnox county jail, he was under, sentence of some twenty year3 for bringing Into the state and pa.??ing unsigned notes of the Bank of Montani, $50,000 worth of which he and his gang secured at the Northern express hold-up at "Wag ner, MontanaX , Before ho was captured here he shot .wo poll.-emen hut they recovered.

McKee's Gash Store, NEW THING HAPPENS Manufacturers Exports Ex ceed Agricultural Exports It Also Happened That for May Im ports of Manufacturers' Materials Nearly Equaled All Other Imports. Washington, July 10. Manufacturers and manufacturers' materials form an unusually important factor in the fig ures of our foreign commerce during the month of May, and indeed, in those of the entire fiscal year. For the first time in the history of our foreign trad2 the value of manufactures exfortel during the month of May exceeded that of agricultural products. The total vaiiue of manufactures exportel in Mar 1904. was $3S,S94,561, c gainst $37,- ! 891.83S, the value of agricultural pro ducts exported. Ordinarily the value of agricultural exports is more thin twice as great as that of manufactures exported. There has been but one complete fls cal year in the history of our export trad in which the totii exports of man ufactures were even half as great as the total exports of agricultural pro ducts. In. 1900 the value of manufac tures exported was a little mere than one half that of agricultural products oxorted but never before had manu fictures equaled or exceeded the value of acrlcultural products in -cur figures of domestic exports. This preponderance of manuf JCtu fe3 In the exports does not by any mea-a hold good for the entire fiscal year, the tcta! of manufactures exported during the eleven months tndir.g- with May 1904, being but little more that half tlV total or agricultural exports, but in the single month of May manufacture? ex ported actually exceeded agricultural products exported by over $1,000,000. Another striking fact with reference to manufactures in the foreign trade is that in the mr-nth of May the impor tation of manufacturers' materials came within a fraction of 1 per cent. of equaling th?t of all other article Imported. The total value of manvfae turers' materials imported in May, 1004, was $39,C65,215. and of all other articles! imported $41,129,535. the per centage which manufacturers' mater ials fctmed of the total imports cf the month being thus 49.03 pr cent. These records of the exports of May indicate very great activity on the part of the manufacturers of the United States. Of raw material imported fcr use in manufacturing the tctal for tha month of May was 44 milltan dollars in excess "of May 1903. while for the eleven months ending with May Ih-? total was but 5'4 millions below that of the corresponding months cf last year a year in which imports cf mmufac turers' materials exceeded, by more than 50 million dol'ars those of any earlier year. In partially manlf.ictured : materials for use in manufacturing ! the imports of the year show a mater ' lal reduction from J49 million dollars i in, the eleven m'r.ths endin? with May 1903, to I2r. millions in the coi rcspondlrg months ending with May, 1901, but in raw materials the drop Is only from 301 millions in eleven mor.ths ending with May 19C3, to 296 millions In 11 months ending With May 1904. It is now quite apparent that the ex perts of manufactures for the full fiscal year will exceed those of any preced ing year in the history' of our com merce. In the eleven months ending with May 1904, they amounted to 4l) million dollars in rour.d terms, and as ihe single m-cnth of May showed n to tal exportaticn of 3S millions It is be yond question that June will add a suf ficient amount to bring the total for the year past the hijrh water mark of ?433.S31,756 made in 1900.

EIGHT LEAN YEARS Nebuchadnezzar's Drouth Beaten by a Year A Paper by the Geological Survey on the Drouthy Situation in the South Wet t. . Washington, July 10. The disastrous result of eight years of drought in a region that has only a limited water supply is the most impressive lesson contained' in Professional Paper No. 23 recently published by the United States Geological Survey. "Forest Conditions in the Black Mesa Forest Reserve. Ar izona" Is the title of th paper, which was prepared by Mr. F. t. Plummer from notes furnished by Messrs. Theo dore F. Rlxon and Arthur Dodwell. The reserve comprises an area of 2786 square miles and includes parts of Yavapai, Coconino, Gila, Navajo, Apache a.nd Graham counties, Arizona. It is an irregular strip of land running from central Arizona Ire a general southeasterly direction to the New Mexico boundary. It follows and Tei principally on the north elope of the Colorado-GUa divide. The character of this divide, known as Black Me?a is that of a southward-facing escarp ment of nearly perpendicular reck, 1500 to 2000 feet highl which Is inac cessible, except in a few places, to the most daring climber. It is the south edge of the great Colorado plateau. The topography of the reserve is in general rough and broken; though the southeastern portion is more rolling, with several high plateaus. Water is very scarce. Eight years ago the reserve was comparatively well watered but successive seasons of drought have rendered It exceedingly dry, and unless a change for the better occurs cattlemen and sheepmen will desert the country. Numerous small areas were once profitably farmed, but in recent years the lack of rainfall has caused a marked (decline in agriculture". Grazing, the main industry of this vjid adjacent regions, has also suffered greatly from continued droughts. The otily remaining areas wnicK are ueel solely for cattle range ere on Blue and Salt River and Eagle Creek. Th? best growths of wild forage grasses era nearly always found et some distance from water, and pro consequently not available for stock which are unatfe to make the trip from water to pasture. The Verde slope in the Beaver Creek watershed is an example of repeatei overstocking. This district was for merly a source of sreat wep-Uh to set tiers in that" vicinity, but the" excessive number of cattle and horses grazed on it has finally resulted in the complete annihilation of the pasture. Unless stringent rules are adopted to regulate the number of stock and the areas cn which they shall be grazed on each permit, this condition will rooner or later prevail throughout the reserve. Yellow pine Is the principal timber tree of the reserve and the only lumber at rresent used for manufacturing pubposes. The drought cf the last eight years has affected even trees like the yellow pine, alligator, juniper and Ari zona cypress, which, as a rule, stand dry weather very well. Hundreds of thousands of feet of timber wiil be lost unless immediately logged. ANTI-COLLEGE ARGUMENTS, Prof Clark Replies to Manufacturer Crane's Strictures. Chicago. July 10. Prof. J. Scott Clark of Northwestern university has formulated a reply to a number ofan-ti-college arguments made by R. L. Crane, a prominent Chicago manufac turer. Part of the reply is as follows: "Some time ago one of Chicago's cap tains of industry, a man who has built up one of the greatest manufactures in the world, made an investigation of a subject which he calls "The utility of a classical education for young1 men who have to earn their own living" "His standing as a' great manufac turer should give his opinions great weight, but this result does not indi cate that it did. The reason for this apparent Indifference appears very clearly in the booklet referred to." Prof. Clark takes objection to Mr. Crane's argument in barring from the discussion all technical and scientific graduates By. so doing, Proi. Clark re plies, the manufacturer leaves out of his discussion over 50 per cent, of all the graduates of American institutions D WIGHT B. BEARD fj Center and Adams Street, npratt of college rank. These, he insists, have beyond question been benefited by a college education. "A college is not a brain factory," says Mr. Clark. "It is not a granary where each graduate may jro away bearing his basket full of facts. A col lege is a grindstone where men and women sharpen 'up what wit they may have obtained by inheritance or en vironment. If a boy has brains and a desire to succeed It Is unwise to say a college education does not pay as un wise as to say a lumberman going Into the forest to fell trees should not sharpen his axe."
