The Art of Good Penmanship.

added quality of penmanship secured will

Queer Reason for Divorce
Many and weird are the excuses sd
vanced by couples who fiud the inarlta
yoke weighing too heavily on their shoal
ders, but I doubt If any of these cai
compare with the one offered by a Maa
sacbusetts wife. Her husband Is a nava
officer, and being sent to the Pnclfli
Count for duty, did not take his brldt
with him, she going Instead to her par
ents. Now In Bun Krnncisco he sues foi
divorce for some reason or other, atid shi

her part that he is "bow legged," und, as
though- that were not enough, bis uni
form largely concealing his curves, adds'
"And be has green eyes, and now that 1
think of It. I never did like green eyes,
anyway." The outcome will be awaited
with Interest by the green-eyed, bow

Bringing Up Boys Right
New York will probably permit hei
schoolteachers to punish refractory pupl
with a rod hereafter, luatead of trying
to accomplish the same result with kind
words. This Is wise, for It I particular
ly true In a city like New York, with n
cosmopolitan population, that moral sua
sion can never be one fractlou as effec
tive as corporal punishment. It la noi
the actual physical hurt as much as It Is
the humiliation of being beateu ever so
gently that counts. Much of the school
teacher's trouble would be obviated If
parents would use the rod more often
at home, and Inculcate the right Idea
of obedience there. Alt does not make
criminals or sour dispositions, certalu
wiseacres to the contrary notwithstand
ing, as most adulta today bare been
through this aame course of treatment li
their youth. ,.

Result of the Recent Conference With
Railroad Traffic Men Was Reviewed
In Detail.
The Maricopa County Commerical
club held a meeting last evening In
Melczer hall at which the entire mem
bership and all interested had been In
vited to be pres ent Though there
was a goodly gathering of the city
merchants there was some disappoint
ment that more were not present and
especially more farmers and fruit
raisers from the country who It Is ex
pected will be the largest individual
beneficiaries of the work of the club,
through the fact that Its efforts will
make it possible for them to secure
good markets for their products.
The primary purpose of the meeting
was to give the members an opportun
ity to hear the report of Traffic Man
agor Jones, concerning the recent con
ference between the directors of the
club and the traffic officials of the
Santa Fe and Southern Pacific rail
roads. Mr. Jones read his report,
which was culte exhaustive and en
larged extemporaneously upon each
subject as he came to it so that those
present could gather the details of the
conference more fully than they could
be set forth In a newspaper article or
even in a typewritten report of rea
sonable length. He recited the griev
ances that had been made in the name
of the club and told how each was
met by the railroad men. In many
instances the admissions of needed
changes in the rates fere prompt and
were accordingly promises). In re'
spect of others however, there were
conditions that will require much con
slderatlon and in respect of these the
railroad men promised the most care
ful attention and the earliest possible
In many cases the rates for local
products could be fixed without any
Interference with schedules elsewhere.
These new rates are the most import
ant for they inean a market for pro
duce that otherwise m!?hl be jraotU
a'.ly worthless or unurofitable t the
grower. There was a foellng cn the
part of one or two of the members
that a demand should have be?n made
for equal rates with California from
eastern polntn. To these It was pjlnt
ed out that sncn a demand would have
been of little use. It Would come un
der the Ion;: and short haul subject
which the mercbants of Spokane have
been fighting for a couple of years
and which Is now pending for settle
ment. It was explained that If they
get a favorable declsloji this vailey
would naturally be accorrlt.i the same
consideration upon application as it Is
similarly situated. If the decision is
against Spokane it would be against
Phoenix and anvhow the courts would
be the only Dlace to work the irues
ticn cut, a proceeding that would be
expensive and annoying in view of the j
fact tnat it is already up for settle
ment. It is believed bv the club however
that it has secured whut is almost as
good and will not necessitate a dis
turbance of the railroad schedules fir
tide water competition. Thnt oiiovs- I
sion was the promise of the railroad
men to grant a rate sufficiently less
than the present rate of "cuast sche
dule with local tariff added." on the 1
commodities shipped In car load lots,
that will enable the valley shippers to
compete with the coast in the home
field at least, or in other words pro
tect the local mercahnts on lucn
things against the tidewater rates en
Joyed by coast Jobbers. While these
rates are not named yet and wiil not
be until they have been submitted to
the club, the railroad men are work
ing or. them and the club has)
confidence that they will deal with the
valley as liberally as possible. It Is
believed that these advantages will
mean hundred of thousands of dollars
to the valley and is all the club can
reasonably hope for at the present
time. After there are secured -It will
be time enough to see if any better
arrangement can be made. Some dis
cussion was had In the freight confer
ence regarding livestock rates, but the
club had little data to work on and
was not certain that changes could be
expected, except in respect of some lo
cal or territorial shipments and that
subject was quite easily gotten over.
Since then there has been some addi
tional information secured which leads
the club to hope that a better rate
may be secured for the coast. More
over it is believed that a new market
for butcher stock can be opened up In
Colorado and New Mexico by securing
rates to Denver. Albuquerque, Colo
rado Springs, etc., that are better than
present rates and that this can be
done without any disturbance of
through railroad rates from coast to
Mississippi or Mirrouri river points.
There was considerable discussion
among the members concerning club
business and a gentle expression of
dissatisfaction at the neglect of some
who should be interested. In attending
the meeting. Stress was laid on the
harmonious relations existing between
the club and the railroad men and the
desire to continue this feeling in the
belief that the matters at issue are of
concern to both sides and both are to
profit by finding the best possible
basis of settlement In all cases.
There was also some discussion of
plans for facilitating the claims of
club members against the railroad
companies, by club cooperation, but no
action was taken to that end. The
the need of a more replete treasury to
meet current obligations was dwelt
upon, and It was announced that there
is plenty of money subscribed for the
maintenance of the club if it Is only
collected. Members have been negli
gent in this respect though they have
been willing enough when approached.
A committee on collections was ap
pointed to serve for the present quar-
er and to be succeeded by a new com
mittee each quarter.

it The achievement of success is often attributed to luck, but
no commercial success can be maintained for a period of ten
years, unless back of it there is real strength and merit.
Our Company was organized in J 898. Since that time
the country has enjoyed an era of great prosperity. In J 903
however, there was a period of unrest; but the money panic of
last year was the supreme test. To survive required ability, and v
strength to overcome difficulties and go forward, while others
We met the emergency and by putting forth the greatest
effort, maintained our business record of showing gains every

We take pride in announcing to our customers and friends
that shipments for our Tenth Year were $10,041,385.65, show

proud of this gain as if it were the largest we had ever made,
