The story of how Charlotte Corday, the humble country girl became a French heroine by murdering Marat, the Revolutionary tyrant, i.s gener ull familiar to all readers. Charlotte Corday brooded over the many, many wrongs that had befallen her country men and women through the instiga tion of Marat, and she decided that it was her duty to put an end to his carnage. She was only twenty-five years old it the time, and inex perienced with the affairs of the world, yet she planned and carried out a most unusual plot to avenge these wrongs. "When Charlotte left her country home ami went to Paris she set a most ingenious trap for her victim. She wrote to Marat: "I have just ar rived from Caen. Your love of coun try makes me presume that you will have pleasure in hearing of the un fortunate events of that portion of the republic. I shall present myself at your abode at one o'clock; have the goodness to receive me." At the first interview she had planned she failed to gain admission to Mil rat's house, but she was more successful when she called in the evening. Marat resided in a dilapi dated house in the Rue des Cordeliers, and he admitted her. The revolution ist was at his bath. Charlotte en tered. Marat asked her the names of the deputies who had taken refuge at Caen. She gave them to him, and he wrote them down. "Refore they are a week older," he said, "they shall have the gullotine." At these words Charlotte drew the knife from her bosom and plunged ;t to the hilt in Marat's heart. She then rlrew th bloody weapon from the body of her victim and let it fall at her fft. "Help, my dear help!" cried Marat, and then expired. At this cry. Albertine ,the maid servant, and Laurent Rasse, rushed into tile apartment and caught Ma rat's sinking head in their arms. Charlotte stood motionless. Several deputies who hail arrived had her NEW SERIES DOMESTIC SCIENCE LECTURES O'DONNELL TALKS TO AT For the next ten weeks, beginning with this afternoon, there will be de livered in the Domestic Science De partment of the High School, a series of lectures upon Domestic Science. !

When she was examined and asked why she had done the murderous deed, she replied: "I saw civil war ready to rendi France to atoms, and. persuaded that Marat was the prin- I cipal cause of the peril and calamities of the land, I have sacrificed my life for his to save my country." Charlotte confessed that no one knew of her intentions at assassina tion and that she had left Caen with the avowed purpose of killing Marat. On her person the guards discovered an address, drawn up by herself, and calling on the French people to pun ish tyrants an restore concord. Charlotte was placed in a cell and watcher, even during the night, by two gens d'arme The committe of general safety hastened her trial and sentence. The day following the mur der the President of the Revolution ary Tribunal, Montane, came to ex amine her. She was removed to the Conciergerie. The next morning at eight o'clock she was conducted be fore the Revolutionary Tribunal. When she had taken her seat on the bench of the prisoners the president assigned to defend her the young Chauveau Lagarde, afterwards illus trious by his defense of the Queen. The widow of Marat wept while she gave her evidence. Charlotte was cross-questioned and Fouquier sum med up and demanded that sentence of death should be pronounced. Her defender arose. "The accused," said he, "confesses her crime, she avows its long premeditation, and gives the most overwhelming details. Citizens, this is her whole defense. It i;; for you to -decide what weight so stern a fanaticism should have in the balance of justice. I leave all to your consciences." The jury unanimously sentenced h"r to death. She heard their verdict un moved; and the president, having a.sked her if she had anything to say, she made no reply; but, turning to her defender she said: "Monsieur, you have defended me as I wished to be defended: I thank you." On her return to the Conciergerie, which was so soon to yield her up to the scaffold, Charlotte smiled on her companions in prison, who had ar ranged themselves in the corridors to see her pass. A priest was sent by the public accuser to offer the last consolations of religion. Charlotte was executed on July 17, 1793. As she mounted the fatal cart a violent storm broke over Paris but the lightning and rain, (lid not dis perse the crowd that had assembled. The sky, however, cleared up before she reached the scaffold. In the face of murder history dares not praise Charlotte Corday. and in the face of heroism, dares not condemn her. Hers was a deed of which men are no judges, and which courts, without ap peal, direct to the tribunal of God. Tomorrow Trial of Lord Cardigan. o On Monday evening, I. D. O'Don nell. Secretary Lane's personal repre sentative and widely known through- out the country as one of the most ; successful and scientific farmers in America, spoke to a large audience at Monroe Hall, Chandler. Mr. and Mrs. O'Donnell, Miss O'Donnell, on their return from a trip of inspection with a number of the local reclamation officials, in : company with Mr. and Mrs. C. H. ; Fitch, visited Chandler Monday after- j noon. Mr. O'Donnell spoke informally on ' practical hints to farmers, and one , could not imagine an address that! contained real meat and less waste. 1 Every time he opened his mouth he said something, and every time he said anything, it was worth remem-1 boring. One reason perhaps, is be-! cause he knows what he is talking about. He owns a 640 acre ranch near Billings, Mont., and any year he can make his land return a re- , venue of from two to three times 1 what any other acres in his country does, he thinks he is going back-1 ward. ' He advised that in the rotation of crops, one ought to have a definite j plan in mind that would cover from five to ten years. This should al- j ways include alfalfa. Following al-; falfa should come an intensive cul- i tivated crop like cotton or corn, lie- ! fore a grain crop should be put in. j He advised tree planting, not only, along roads and ditches but in small j groves. He said, too, that farmers , should grow their own seed grain, j and told them to do it. j He specially emphasized cultiva- , tion saying that after irrigation it, was often well to disk before plow- j ing, thus giving the soil which came next to the seed finer pulverization. After plowing should come double disking, harrowing and floating. La- ' bor spent on a seed bed should al ways be returned a hundred foUl. i He advised stock feeding. Alfalfa is some times low in price; meat, ! never. Do not, he said, get more j stock thin you have feed for. It is ; dangerous to depend upon buying, j Feed everything you raise, but raise, ; as well, all you feed. Often he said, where a farmer ' sold instead of feeding his hay and j grain, the wife would make more out , of her chickens and turkeys than the -farmer would from all the rest of his ranch. j He told the farmer to keep books, j A memoranda book which could be carried in the pocket was much bet- ' ter than none. Too many farmers ; did not know on which of his crops he was making money, upon which he was losing. He called special attention to fact that different kinds of soil quired different treatment. Some times a man had s.ir.dy loam on the upper end of a field and heavy soil on the lower. Yet after irrigation he would work all the soil at the same time. As to values, he said that he be lieved every acre of land in the Salt River Valley set to alfalfa or other good crop, if properly managed could lay interest on $2."0 an acie. He also spoke briefly of the op portunity that would be given farm ers who were along the borders of the included area in the Roosevelt district, and had been left out of the project, to state their claims for com ing in. He said that final report would not be made to the secretary u r - 1 w 1 ' It E. S. WAKELIN CO. WHOLESALE .
