IMPORTANT MATTER OF LIGHT
Excellent Reasons Why It Should Al
ways Fall From the Left Side of
Writer or Worker.
A well-known fact that, when
using the eyes fur any near work, the
illumination should come from the lef:
Hide rather than the right, is often dis
regarded. .; ' i;v. ' ?'
Let anyone who considers the matter
of little Importance onco. demonstrate
to himself the difference and he will
never forget It. Take a pencil und pa
per aud try to write while In such a
position that the light will fall from
the right side.
The shadow of the hand or pencil
or both Is thrown on the paper In such
u way as partly to cover the character
one Is making. This necessitates a
closer viewpoint and a conscious (strain
on the eyes. Now let the position of the
writer bo reversed so that the light
falls from the left side.
He will notice that the shadows fall
nway from the work he Is doing .and
leave the Held unohscured. In tnnkiug
the change of ease that immediately Is
experienced by the eyes.
This applies to any other kind or
uenr work in which the lingers act mi-'
'lor the guidance of the eyes. Tills fact
should be remembered In planning
schoolrooms, workrooms, olllccs ami
my places where steady, close work Is
to be performed.
i TOO many cases country peo
peoplo ami town and city people
misunderstand one another, ami
both lose. As n consequence
urban dwellers buv Oregon ap
ples and California grapes, and
rural folk buy their furniture,
farm machinery and supplies
from Chicago mail-order houses.
Hero and there, however, some
of the more far-sighted men and
women of both groups are mak
ing determined eflorts to sup
plant distrust and contempt with fellowship and
co-operation- And it works Ladles and gentle
men, It works beautifully 1
The enterprising citizens of Jamestown, N. Y
and the farm people who live in the counties sur
rounding the city (which 'have a population of
about 40,000) joined heads, hearts and hands this
last autumn in a great "Farm and City (let-Together
Festival," add the affair was such a huge
success that a permanent organization was
formed and the festival will be held nnuuully here
after. Here Is an Illustration of how misunderstanding
Is bred and why it persists sometimes:
James Mason, n city dry-goods merchant, drove
out In the country one plensant Sunday afternoon
In October, and was astonished at the number
of apples he saw on the ground In orchards along
the roadside. "I cannot buy good apples at the
grocery next my store," he complained, "unless I
pay Alaska prices for them, 5 cents each. Yet
here they are rotting on the ground."
Mason Jumped to the conclusion that the farm
ers did not try to save the apples, or M help the
city man and his family get food. "They are
both selfish and lazy," he asserted when he told
of the experience.
Simon Kewcomb lived on n farm near where
Mason drove that Sunday. He had been In town
Saturday afternoon with a load of apples. The
groceryinan looked them over, and offered New
comb 50 cents a bushel. Newcomb hail read In
his farm paper that apples were scarce, and he
thought he ought to have a dollar n bushel.
"lint your apples are not sorted. There are sev
eral kinds in the one crate, and many of them
are inferior In size, and some Imdly worm eaten,"
olijeetod the grocer. "You leave them with me
for fiO cents a bushel or else take them some
Newcomb looked at his watch and saw It was
nearly chore time, ami he sold them. Hut when
he got home he told his wife the grocer took ad
vantage of him and was little better than a rob
ber. Hut both men were wrong. The orchard owner
was not lazy nor seltlsh. He had other problem
worse to handle and more uecessary to him than
picking up and saving a few bushels of apples.

All wrong, almost from the start.
Just us the foregoing illustration mnkes plain
the problem more than pages of generalities, so
the experience of Jamestown in Its tirst Farm and
City festival will show how the effort to get to
gether succeeds better than more pages of plati
tudes. First of all Jamestown had a live board of
commerce, anil a secretary with a vision tint
bounded by the factory chimneys of the city nor
its city limits. Secretary Fred Clayton Butler
had been studying some United States census re
. ports on 'Chautainpia county, N. Y and he dis
covered that most of the rural towns of the county
and all its rural villages, but two or three that
had a lot of factories, had decreased In population
in the last three decades. He did not need to
be told about the Increase in cost of living. That
In surveying the field he found that there was
an active apple growers' association In Chautau
qua county, also a milk producers' association, a
farm bureau, a lot of big granges, and a number
of farmers' clubs. The manager of the farm
bureau was lluwloy 15. Rogers, and Mr. Rogers
was called into conference with Mr. I'.utler.
"You do not need to tell uie anything about de
creasing rural populations," interrupted Rogers,
when litiller started In on his pet paragraph. "I
knew nil about that before you city people awak
ened. Hut what can we do about It?"
Right, here the city man had the farm bureau
man beaten. "We can get together and find out,"
was hi reply. "I know that the city people have
a double stake fit issue; the cost of what 'they
must have to cut, and the market for n large part
of their goods, 1 think your people have some
thing at stake also. You want good roads, and
good schools, and good markets. Perhaps we can
Out of this conference grew a bigger conference,
present at which were representatives of most of
these rural organizations and some active busi
ness men frni,: the city of Jamestown. The pro
portion at this time, and so far as possible in
every succeeding step up to the hie banquet which
closed the festival lintilly aud successfully held,
was Just "fifty-fifty"; half city people, half farm
people on every committee und in every confer
ence. This conference, held In August, decided to hold
a Farm and City festival, n real get-together. In
November. "Not a county fair, but better than a
county fjtlr. with the vaudeville features omitted,"
was the way it was expressed. At the Initial meet
ing it was decided to carry out this get-together
idea by making the exhlblis of nn educational
character as far as possible In every instance.
To do thisyuid to finance it several committees
were named. A street was closed and covered
.with tents. Other tents -wore put up en vacant
lots, and the state armory was used. All sorts of
exhibits prize livestock, poultry, dairy products,
grains, fruit, vegetables, etc. were shown and
prizes awarded. Slate experts In all phases of
farming, in domestic science, in child welfare. In
dietetics, etc.. delivered lectures to the city and
country people. A railroad traffic expert dis
cussed plans for helping producer on the farm to
get his products directly and expeditiously to con
sumer in the city. The government sent ti good
roads exhibit, and motion pictures were used to
make many of the lectures more graphically Inter
estins;. And then there was a treat closing dinner. Five
hundred persons representing every part of the
county and city attended this affair. There was
fine music, for one thing orchestral and choral
work, led by Cornell university music Instructors,
and solos -and (Jov. Charles S. Whitman, who was
in the city on a campaign trip, left politics behind
and he and Mrs. Whitman attended the banquet.
"Co-operation" and "get acquainted" were the
watchwords of the occasion. Two weeks after
ward the committees met und decided unanimous
ly to hold another "Farm and pity Get-Together
Festival" next year.

SPIDERS ARE NOT VERY DANGEROUS
The famous tarnntuln, reported to be one of the
terrors of the arid parts of the. Southwestern,
states nnd northern Mexico, and which hulks so
large In the Imagination and the fears of those
persons who hove friends on the border, is really
not the tnrntifiiln of history nnd of fable.
One of the numerous students of spiders nnd
the tarantula Is a spider says of that, terrifying
spiders: "When undisturbed, spiders never Wte
anything except Insects useful ns their food, but
when attacked or cornered all species open their
Jaws nnd bite if they can, depending on the size
nnd strength of their Jaws. The stories of death,
Insanity and lameness from the bites of spiders
are probably untrue."
The species of spider are hard to number. The
spiders of North Amerlcn huve been studied by
I.... . ih,,t It la 4ha t.i'nnfln lillinlllln II kltltl flf
spider found In some of the warmer parts of Italy Hentz. Kmerton. KeyserlliiB nnd Thoroll. nnd no
and Spnln. When full grown It Is nhout the slse U by a number of other men who l.nye spe-
nf o chestnut nnd of a brown color. "Its bite wns
ut one time supposed to be donRcrous." says this
authority, "nnd to catise a kind of 'dancing dis
ease,' but It Is now known not to bo worso than
the Mtlnir of a common wasp."
It la very likely that when the enrly Spanish
explorers enine upon the trreat spider of the South
west, nnd selng a good deal of resemblance to
the tarantula of the old world those explorers
not hnvlng been scientific entomologists they
cnlled the new spider n tarnntuln, nnd the nnme
has stuck. -
There Is no doubt that the '.big spider of Art-''
sonn, Now Mexico, California, old Mexico nnd
many other places Is a relative of the tarantula
of Simla nnd Italy, und in color, disposition nnd in
the mnttof of his hairy tegs a layman might easily 1
mistake him for the tarnntuln. Hut perhaps there
Is not much In a name so far ns spiders go, und
It la Just as well to avoid It possible that pnrtlcu- '
lar spider which so many Americans call the taran
tula, though It Is quite certain that the mean
naaa of bis disposition has been exaggerated,
J. II. Kmcrton, one of the spider experts of the
world, 'writes, after yeora of Intimate study of J
clallzed In Insects, and it Is estimated that there
are. 800 species In North America. The spider
hns heart, liver, stomach, Intestines, thorax, lungs
and several other interesting organs,, ns, for ex
ample, the spinning glands and spinnerets.
It Is recorded that n good many experiments
have been made to throw light on the effect of
spider bites on man, A distinguished entomolo
gist, mimed Bertknu, allowed various kinds of
spiders to bite his hand. Some of them drew
blood, giving a sensation like that of a sharp
needle prick. The wounds smarted nnd swelled
somewhat und Itched when ruhlied, producing very
much the sensation of mosquito bites, bnt no per
manent III effects followed. Another entomolo
gist, 'named Bluckwell, also allowed specimens
of the big spiders to bite his hand. Ho reported
that he felt no particular pain nnd little Inflnnv
I nation followed, and the wounds soon healed.
. Still another entomologist, named Dolexchall, re
ported that he had ahut up small birds with the
Mygalo, one of the biggest and fiercest of Um
spider tribe. Te birds soon died after being
bitten, lie allowed one of his fingers to be
bitten by n large Jumping spider. The pain was
severe and his finger nnd then his band and
nrm became lame, but the soreness soon possed
The Sfygale Is one the best-known of the large
and heavy spiders. It is n native of tropical and
subtropical Amerlcn. It is said that It catches
and kills stnnll birds with Its poisonous bite and
then sucks the blood of Its victims. The body
of this spider Is pitch black and Is covered with
long reddish-brown hair. It has eight eyes placed
close together In the front of Its head. It Is a
close kinsman to the so-called bird spider, of
Surinam, ' .
The offlclnl name of that American spider called
the tarantula Is Ctenlsn California, and It Is one
of the trapdoor spiders. It Is common In. New
Mexico, Arizona, nnd California. According to
John Sterling Klngsley. this spider digs Its hole
In a fine soil which when dry Is nearly ns hard as
brick. These spider holes are sometimes nearly
an Inch In diameter and vary In depth from two
nnd three inches to nearly a foot. The mouth of i
the hole Is enlarged nnd then closed by a thick :
cover which fits It tightly. That cover fits Into
the mouth of the hole very much ns a cork does
In the neck of a bottle. The cover Is made of dirt
fastened together with threads and, like the hole,
Is 1. ted with silk and Is fastened by a thick hinge'
made of spider's silk. When the cover la closed
It looks exactly like the ground around It.
. This, like many other species of spider, la
nocturnal Jn Its habits, raising Its trapdoor at
night and sallying forth In search of food. Its
chief food being Insects, . -'
There Is so much diversity of opinion as to the
effect of the bite of these aplders that In living
where they are a man nhould practice safety first
and tike no chances witn them. .
