* Island and Providence Planta- i
t lions." It originated from two j
t distinct settlements. The Hist i
i was made by Hoger Williams in j
j IOHO. He was tho pastor of a j
! church In Salem. As be udvo- ?
j ea ted radleal reforms he was |

[ tribe of Indians. From them he -
I obtained a tract of land and t
called the town which he eatab- f
lished Providence, In token of ?
Cod's mercy which had so far t
provided for him.
About the same time Mrs.
Anne Hutchinson and her fol- j
lowers were expelled from Mas- .
sachusetta on account of a theo- j
logical dispute. She made her [
way to the island of Aquldneck,
which she purchased from the
Indians for 40 fathoms of white
wampum, 20 hoes und 10 coats.
The name of this Island was
changed to tho Isle of Rhodes,
probably after the famous Greek
Island In the Mediterranean.
By common usugo it became
known as Rhode Island. In 1002
Charles II gave Rhode Island a
very liberal charter, and this re
mained In force until 1841, whoa
a new state constitution was
adopted by mass conventions,
and two years later another new
constitution was legally voted.
The change tn constitutions
caused what was knowu as
Dorr's rebellion.
The entrance of Rhode Island
Into the Union lu 1700 completed
the list of the original thirteen

Old lellos Reveal Many Interesting
Farts Concerning Meunurcs.
Washington, June ll. - Many a
musty oddity of forgotten tariff stat
utes has hoon turned up by a search
of the capital archives. This has dis
closed tho fact that tho first . Con
gress assembled unler the constitu
tion faced the samo problems that
faced tho Sixty-seventh when it mot
in last April.
The first tariff act was passed on
July 4th, 178!?. its for mu 1 title and
statement of purpose-"for laying a
duty on goods, wares and merchan
dise Imported int- the United States"
-carried a bluntness which states
men for the next hundred years wore
to avoid.
'Mt is necessary for tho support of
tho government," this first Congress
said, "for tile discharge of debts of
(lie United States and for the en
couragemont and protection of manu
facturers that a duty he laid upon
goods, wares and merchandise im
lt was just ion yours, the compila
tion shows, before such a straight
forward statement of purpose about
"encouraging and protecting manu
facturers" would be made again in
an import tux statute, though the
purpose was most evidently behind
most of thc scores nf following ?eis.
So simple was the il i's I hill thal i!
required only two pages of thc com
mittee print against more than Ino
for the puync-Atdricli ucl ol' I iiO'.l.
Too simple ii probably was. for a
youl" Inter August IO, I Tan Con
gress passed an "Act making fur
ther provision for Ile- payment of j
debts ol' the United States."
Mori- deftly the purpose of the
La I' i fl' bill as il passed on March 2.
IT'.'L'. was staled to be "for the rais
ing of a farther sum of money for
the protection of frontiers," evading
any remarks about protection of in
dustries, and one duty imposed was
"on coal, per bushel, four and one
half couts."
Two years later the famous Tripoli
troubles a roso, and Congress, on the
20th of March, 1794, passed "An Act
to protect Hie commerce and seamen
of the'Uniied Stales against the Bar
bary powers.'' Phis act slapped on
a general increase of 2 Yt ?nd IO per
cent ad valorem duties. The statute
stated itself to lie temporary, for one
year, but the title proved to be too
good to be wasted. Year by year
after and clear up to 1813, Congress
reiterated its laudable purpose, re
enacted its increased schedules and
announced it was going after the
Barbary pirates with a continuation
Of tho tariff for another twelve
In 1813, however, the nation went
to war with Groat Britain, and In n
hasty and brief paragraph of statute
Congress announced "an additional
duty of 100 per cent on all perma
nent duties," to ho collected for the
duration of hostilities. The tax on
imported salt, incidentally, got up tn
2 0 cents a pound.
This waa about the end of the oar
ly tariff era. according to the compil
ation. For the next forty years most,
of the acts were labelled "To reduce
linties." This they plainly did, for the
salt lax was placed at IO cents a
bushel. Congress was fruitful of en
ictmenls "to release from duly iron
prepared for railways" and the like.

Young Fowls When Old Enough

Must Be Given Care.
Bulletin Given Out by Department of
Agriculture Especially for Begin

Proper Growth.
(Prepared hy the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture)
Tlie enthusiasm with which many
poultry raisers, particularly begin- j
uers, start in the spring with young '
chicks sometime.! lags as the season
advances and the chicks get old
enough to shift for themselves. If care
ls neglected at this- period, however,
success is Improbable. The baby
chicks may be smart little fellows
from strong, vigorous parent stock,
and they may have been brooded care
fully for the first two or three weeks,
hut unless they receive proper care
and management during their Inter
growing period they will not develop
properly, and many of them will he

ginners, especially members of boys
and girls' poultry elid?s.
Suitable Food and Care.
The chief essentials to the proper
growth of chicks, according to the bul
letin, are pood coops, or houses, clean
liness, proper feed and water, shade
and free range. Crowing chicks
should be provided with large, roomy
coops or houses, which will give them |

and during stormy weather. The bul- I
letln suggests no particular kind of
house, but states lt should be so built
that lt will provide the chicks with

plenty pf light, pure air and sunshine,
and protect them from dampness and
storms of all kinds.
Chicks should never be crowded in
brood coops, for crowding will cause
them to become overheated, resulting
In Improper growth and sometimes In
dead chicks.
Sickness or disease usually starts
in unclean quarters, and in such
places lice and miles are always more
plentiful, the bulletin says*. Thc coops
should be cleaned and sprayed once a
week, and clean shavings, chaff, or
sand put on the door, f?xamiue the
chicks and houses often for lice and
mites, and If found they should he

letin 1110 gives directions for lighting
lice ami miles.
Feed Right for Rapid Growth.
The three kinds of feeds most nec
essary for rapid growth are grain
feed, green feed ?md dry mash. A
grain mixture should be fed nigh) and
morning, giving-ns large II tpiuntlly as
the chicks will eal clean, but no more.
A good mixture for growing chicks
consists of three parts cracked corn,
two parts wheal and two pails hulled
oats. Kalli* corn or rolled or hulled
barley may be substitute i for hulled
oats. A supply of fresh green feed is
almost as necessary as grain for grow
ing chicks. They obtain plenty of it

"Black-Draught ls. in
my opinion, the best liver
medicine on the market,"
states Mrs. R. H. White
side, of Keota, Okla. She
continues: "1 had a pain
in my chest after eating
tight, uncomfortable feel
ing-and this was very
disagreeable and brought
on headache. 1 was con
stipated and knew it was
indigestion and inactive
liver. 1 began the use of
Black-Draught, night and
morning, and it sure is
splendid and certainly
gives relief."
For over seventy years
this purely vegetable
preparation has been
found beneficial by thou
sands of persons suffer
ing from effects of a tor
pid, or slow-acting liver.
Indigestion, biliousness,
colic, coated tongue, diz
ziness, constipation, bit
ter taste, sleeplessness,
lack of energy, pain in
back, puffiness under the
eyes-any or all of these
symptoms often indicate
that there is something
the matter with your
liver. You can't be too
careful about the medi
cine you take. Be sure
that the name, "Thed
ford's Black-Draught," is
on the package. At all
