ADVANCE IN PRICES.
Binder Twine Market Rises Helf a Cent and
Is Still on the Up Grade.
Confirming predictions in our former
comments on Binding Twine, prices
have advanced one-half cent per pound
on all grades. This advance is made
on the strong position of the fiber
market, and indications are that pres
ent prices will be maintained, although
even higher prices may prevail in the
very near future.
Consumption will be larger than an
ticipated as, from farm papers of the
Mississippi valley, a larger amount of
twine than usual will be required for
the oat harvest, an increase of at least
25 per cent by most conservative esti
mate. Wheat straw is large and grain
lodged, thus demanding more twine
where only an average was looked for
a few Greeks since. This means a
shortage of twine in the East.
A careful canvass of the Northwest
indicates that home manufacutrers are
well prepared to take care of the market
of this section, and native pride would
dictate that, other things being equal,
home products Bhould be given prefer

quality, and an excellence such as pos
sessed by the Ç.over Leaf Brand with
lower cost per 1,000 feet, also a market
near at hand, dealers should not hesi
tate in making up their orders. At
present, however, heavy shipments are
being made, and orders should be placed
at once as better attention can be given
to early orders than where bunched so

Special attention is called to the an

pany of Oregon, which appears in
another column. This is a very old
and well established trust company,
and its certificates of deposit are in use
throughout Oregon, as well as in Cali
fornia. Maryland, Wisconsin and otuer
points. Farmers and stockmen, who
have money lying idle, can by the use
of these certificates get interest up to
the very date on which they withdraw
the money. If, for example, a farmer
had to make a payment on the 15th of
December, and he held one of the Port
land Trust Company of Oregon's 90
day certificates, he could give notice on
the 15th of September, and would re
ceive his money on the loth of Decem
ber, with interest up to that very date.

HORRIBLE TRADE IN JAPAN
I
Woman Traffics In Heads Of ths Dead
for Medicinal Purposes.
The Japanese Government for many
years has been trying to stamp out a
most barbaric custom among Its sub
jects of the lower classes, handed down
for centuries—that of using the heads
of dead bodies for medicinal purposes,
says the San Francisco Bulletin. A few
days before the steamship Coptic sailed
from Yokohama a family was arrested
for carrying on the grewsome trade.
The heads were either charred over a
fire and thus sold, or ground Into pow
der. The powder thus obtained Is sold
under the disguised names of Tensekl,
Tengal or Henjirishl, according to Its
form. - It Is formally announced that
these heads are the charred heads of
stags and no one but the druggist or
his chief assistant is supposed to know
the real facts.
The police have now succeeded, how
ever, in tracing the persons who pro
cure these heads, and the wife of a man
named Hanamoto Kakichl, residing at
Nippoubashlsujl, Higashi, Osaka, and
her eldest son were arrested on Feb. 10
as the result of a search of their house.
The man had been suffering from lep
rosy for three years. A human head,
quite intac{, was found In the dwell
ing. This one had already been charred,
but two more were discovered buried
in the ground, being seemingly too old
for disposal. Besides the heads, a con
siderable number of snakes, some
measuring over five feet In length, were
found in tubs, and also a number of
tortoise and hundreds of live bujlfrogs.
These were also for charring and sell
ing as medicine.
The woman, upon examination, at
first stated that she found the head In
a pond near Sakai. Upon being taken
to the pond, however, she confessed
that she got the head from a cemetery
at Sumlnoyemura, Nishlnari-gun, Osa
ka. From her statement It appears she
was in the habit of going to the ceme
tery to catch snakes, of which a great
number abound there, and thus made
the acquaintance of the watchman.
Together they devised a plan for se
curing the heads of people burled In
the cemetery. This outrage, it appears,
has been going on for years, but has
only now come to Hght.
GERMAN AND AMERICAN TOILER.
Conditions Are Widely Different in the
Two Countries.
In Germany It may be said that the
tendency is to make better workmen;
in America and England the tendency
is to make better men. The Anglo-Sax
on policy is to "cast the bantling on the
rock" and let him work out his own
salvation through temptation. In Ger
many the policy is quite the reverse;
the workman ,is protected from dis
ciplining temptation and ruled in a
thousand ways by the government in
stead of being allowed to rule himself.
American discipline is from within,
German from without.
The Germnu workman is without
hope even in religion, for it is rare that
German workman is ever seen in
church after confirmation; there is lit
tle or no chance for him to rise; he las
before him no possible career in poli
tics, nor any hope of becoming a Car
negie or u Huntington. Consequently
he is without ambition to do his work
faster or by better methods; he is con
tent to do what his father did, without
thinking, though the all-seeing govern
ment is making herculean efforts
through its scores of technical and in
dustrial schools—the best in the world—
to stir him from his stolid and prece
dent-bound lethargy.
The German workman Is slow, says
the Outlook, therefore his wages are
small. It is less expensive in Germany
to hire muscle than it is to install ex
pensive machinery. Therefore in all
sorts of German manufacturing estab
lishments one sees clouds of workmen
bending their backs to burdens which
America are borne swiftly, noiselessly
and more cheaply by electricity or
steam.
More Profitable.
The "anti-daisy bill," introduced into
the New York State Assembly, pro
vided that the daisy be classed as a
detrimental, together with the wild
carrot, the common Çanada thistle and
the wild lettuce; and that if a farmer
did not dig up these weeds the tax
assessors were empowered to enter the
farm, dig them up and charge the ex
pense to the farmer, along with his
taxes.
Recently, according to the New York
Tribune, this bill was the subject of
conversation between a city and a
country assemblyman.
"Do you think that such a bill is a
good bill?" asked the city member.
"The daisy is one of the most beauti
ful flowers that we have, exquisite iu
Its simplicity."
"That may be." replied the country
member. "It is beautiful to look at.
but It ruins a crop of hay."
"But Jf you dig up our daisies what
will our poets do?"
"Raise hay, If they're wise. What
kind of a show does a poet stand, any
way? At the present time a bale of
hay brings a good deal higher price
than the same amount of verse."
Newspapers of the Country.
An arithmetic mun calculates the

HAD WHOLE CAR TO HERSELF
Woman Journeyed from Atlanta to
Washington in Solitary Grandeur.
A plucky Southern woman scored a
victory over a grasping corporation re
cently and is one of the proudest of
her sex in consequence. She got on
a Pullman car attached to the South
ern's train at Birmingham and showed
a ticket' and a Pullman car coupon for
Washington. When the train arrived
at Atlanta It was found that the wom
an was the only passenger on the car
ticketed for the North. When she was
asked to transfer to another car at
tached to the North bound train she
produced her Pullman coupon from her
card case and said:
"This entitles me to a section in this
car to Washington."
"Th^t is all right, madam," replied
the conductor. "Other arrangements
have been made and this car will uot
go through."
"I think It will," said the lady. "My
coupon says I am to ride in this car
to Washington and 1 don't propose to
leave the ear."
Efforts of the officials to make the
woman leave the Pullman were in
vain. She was perfectly cool and de
termined and finally the railway offi
cials admitted defeat by attaching the
Pullman with Its Blngle passenger to
the North-bound train and carrying It
through to Washington. The car w as
without a conductor or porter and, pas
sengers along the way thought it a
deadhead car, but J. M. Culp, traffic
manager of the Southern, and J. I..
Cox, of Atlanta, a soliciting freight
agent for the road, who were ou the
train, told the story of- the occurrence
at Atlanta and admitted defeat for

WOMEN OF MARTINIQUE.
Their Love of Bright Colora Exem
plified in Gay Costumes.
The women of St. Pierre, who only
a few weeks ago were leading a hap
py. butterfly life, are said to have been
strikingly picturesque and even beau
tiful. A chatty, recent writer says of
them: *
Their love for color is the passion
ate fondness for brightness of all the
races from which they spring—negro.
French and Indian. Fashions change
not at all from decade to decade, anil
the only difference between the dress
of the richer class and the poor is a
matter of quality, except in the case
of the women who act as carriers of
fruit and vegetables.
These wear a simple garment, not
unlike an Empire gown, made with a
good deal of fullness and drawn up
under the girdle in such a way as to
leave the limbs free. This gown is
always off some vivid hue, with which
the golden tint of the skin contrasts
exqiuisitely, and as the women are
beautifully formed, the effect is that
of draped statuary.
In the Well-to-do class the same pas
sion for color is shown. Over a loose,
white linen garment, richly embroid
ered with full, flowing sleeves, a gown
is worn that is much like that Just
described, but is of silk or fine muslin.
Crimson, yellow, blue or green may be
the ground color, on which brilliant
flowers of vividly contrasting shades
are printed. This is caught up by a
silk sash to a comfortable walking
length, and a long scarf of thin silk
is draped eoquettishly around the
shoulders. The costume is completed
by a kerchief of gay colors, tied about
the head with a conspicuous bow on
top, and frequently a large jeweled
brooch at each side of the fastening.
The women have a stately carriage
that I have never seen surpassed.
Whether bearing a basket of cakes
or fruit on the head, to be sold at the
shops and houses, or sauntering down
to the water to be rowed about for
amusement, their dignity of manner
and statuesque beauty of form are fas
cinating in the extreme.
The better class has some education,
and the women study a little music
and embroider exquisitely by way of
accomplishments. They have rhusical
voices, as a rule and sing sad little
creole songs or gay French chansons
very prettily.
They are a cleanly people and util
ize the mountain streams to keep the
streets clean, as well as for baths.
One of the "show" places is the great
shower bath in the court of the alms
house. The force of the water from
the mountain height is immense, and
the baths are frequented by many be
sides the inmates of the bouses.
The white population is only a' few
thousands, so that the only impression
that one derives from the street
throngs is that of the native popula
tion, with its colors and brightness.
The two do not mingle in any way
there are enough of the whites to form
a charming society, and the natives
are perfectly content to be ignored so

BAD BLOOD.
BAD COMPLEXION.
The skin is the seat of an almost end
less variety of ' diseases. They are knewu
by various names, but are all due to the
same cause, acid and other poisons in
the blood that irritate and interfere with
the proper action of the skin.
To have a smooth, soft skin, free from
all eruptions, the blood must be kept pure
and healthy. The many preparations of
arsenic and potash and the large number
of face powders and lotions generally
used in this class of diseases cover up
for a short time, but cannot remove per
manently the ugly blotches and the red,
disfiguring pimples.

HOW ABOUT IT?
When you strike a stump with the ordinary
push cut mower, something happens about as
shown In the above Illustration, and they are
all push cuts, and all- will do this except the
Champion Draw Cut Mower.
This serves to show that pressure against the
bar will raise the wheels from ground, decrease
traction and cutting power. With the Cham
pion Draw Cut the contrary Is the result—pres
sure against the bar In heavy cutting gives
downward pull, holding the wheels tighter to
the ground. Increased traction, more power,
making the most powerful cutter on the mar
ket. This fact stands undisputed, and if you
want the best mower made, buy the Champion
Draw Cut.
