Archbold, of the Standard Oil company, in 1904. Sena tor Penrose admitted receiving that, , „ . , . ,, ^ , sum from Mr. Archbold, but said it was part of contribution of $125,000 made by Archbold to the republican national campaign fund, $100,000 of J which amount, he said, went to the re- i publican national committee and $25, 000 to nimself for use in Pennsylvania, "President Roosevelt had been ad-, vised of the contribution," Senator Penrose declared. He said that Cor-, nelius N. Bliss, then treasurer of the national committee, later asked for an-1 other contribution of $150,000 from . , , ,, . , , . . . ,, Archbold and his associates interest-1 ed in the Standard Oil company." "The demand was urgent, insistent —I may say imperative—and it was reported it came direct from President Roosevelt," declared Senator Penrose, forcefully. William Flinn, Roosevelt interview with Colonel l which the latter was quoted as saying that Penrose had nothing to do with the presidential campaign of 1904. The senator said he was a member of the national com-j rnittee, chairman of the Pennsylvania state committee, and conducted the! campaign in Pennsylvania. "Mr. president, is this ingratitude,: mendacity or politcal asphasia?" he demanded. A ripple of laughter greeted this question and Penrose settled into his sea t leader in Pennsylvania, was scored by Penrose. The senator charged that in 1904 Flinn offered him and Israel W. Durham $1,000,000 or $2,000,000 if they would favor his candidacy to tlie sen ate to succeed Senator Quay. Sena tor Penrose read what purported to be copies of telegrams to show that Flinn asked John D. Archbold to as sist hint in securing the election. At the conclusion of his speech the senator promised further disclosures. Penrose had read by the clerk a newspaper Roosevelt Senator Bacon asked to whom the $2,000,000 was to be paid by the "citi-; zen who desired to be elected to the senate?' "I suppose to either Mr. Durham or myself," responded Mr. Penrose. "We did not get that far in the considera tion of the business." Senator Culbertson, ol' Texas, seek ing a psychological opportunity, called up his bill forbidding campaign con tributions by corporations, and limit ing the amount to be contributed by individuals to $5,000. A filibuster developed against the measure and after 28 senators had! Greatest Sale of tHe Year We are overstocked on refrigerators and are going to sell them at unheard of prices.

In his speech Senator Penrose said: "Certain letters from John D. Arch bold addressed to me have recently been published and an effort has been made to establish a connection be tween the work of the industrial com mission, of whicn I was a member, and an alleged letter purporting to en close $25,000 from John D. Archbold. Their publication now, with the malignant insinuation accompanying them, is in the nature of political ■ blackmail, the purpose of which is to punish, coerce or intimidate me be cause of my political course. The. statement that there is any connection between the industrial commission ana a certain check from John D. Arch bold is false, malicious and without justification. "j now CO me to the letter alleged to have been written to me by John D. Archbold, inclosing a certificate of de posit in my favor for $25,000, written under date of October 12, 1904. "I have reason to believe that this letter is a forgery and I challenge its production; but it is true, and at the time lt was we ll known that in the presidential campaign of 1904 I did re ceive such a contribution from Mr. Archbold for the campaign in Pennsyl ^ M 1 "j was at the time the chairman of the republican state committee of Pennsylvania and a member of the re PubHcan national committee repre sen ting that, state.

Archbold had several interviews with Cornelius N. Bliss, treasurer of tne republican national committee, and with me relative to fi nancial assistance in the campaign, Finally we came to an understanding by which Mr. Archbold made a contri button of $125,000, of which $100,000 ,, ,,,. . , was to go to Mr. Bliss as treasurer OI j the republican national committee | the national presidential campaign I outside of Pennsylvania, and $25,000 to be contributed to me as state chair I man for the campaign in Pennsyl j vania. "Mr. Archbold received the receipt of Mr. Bliss, as treasurer and as rep resenting the republican national com mittee, for the amount, of $100,000. The contribution of $25,000 received by me, as chairman of the republican state committee of Pennsylvania, was expended in the presidential campaign in that state. "Not long after the contribution of $100,000 to the republican national committee, Mr. Bliss, on behalf of the committee, again called to see Mr. I Archbold and asked for a further con tribution of $150,000. He represented I that Mr. Roosevelt had been advised of: j the original contribution, as had the j chairman of the republican national committee, Mr. Cortelyou, and that : the contribution was appreciated by both, hut that (lie need of furtliei financial assistance was badly felt and that much further assistance would be still more appreciated. - ; The Harbor of Colombo, j j n j875 the late King Edward VII, ; then Prince of Wales, laid the first j block of the southwest breakwater the harbor ol' Colombo, Ceylon. Priori j to that time the harbor had been an open roadstead, exposed to the full violence of the monsoons. On May 1 of the present year the governor of Ceylon, Sir Henry McCallum, laid the final stone in an extension of the southwest breakwater, thus completing the construction of one of the finest artificial harbors in the world, which is a square mile in area and capable of accommodating 40 to 50 vessels of over 12,000 tons. The total cost of j construction has amounted to about $15,000,000. News of Our Neighbors Items of Interest to Our Readers Clipped From Our Contemporaries STANFORD. (Stanford World.)

While driving to this city from the ranch last Monday afternoon, Mrs. Geo. Nicholson suffered a broken arm and several bruises about the face and body. Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Brennan and son, who were visiting at the Nicholson ranch, were also in the rig, and Mr. Brennan had his back badly and in endeavoring to stop the team, the buggy was pulled onto the team, which caused one of the horses to be gin kicking. Mrs. Nicholson and Mr. Brennan, who were in the front seat, were in some manner pulled out over the dash, the rig passing over them and into the ditch, where it was over turned.

Allen & Robinson have about 200 acres of fine flax growing on their big farm about three miles northeast of Judith Gap. They have 640 acres broken up and will sow over 400 acres to winter wheat this fall. A workman on the new elevator at Oka fell from a scaffolding to the bot tom of the pit, a distance of 40 feet. A keg of nails followed him, hut did not strike him. The man was not killed by the fall, but was hurt in ternally, and was taken to the hos pital at Lewistown in an unconscious state. It is believed he will recover, The amount of winter wheat already j sown this year exceeds by far the en-' tire acreage to crop in any one year j in this vicinity. The farmers have be- j gun to realize that turkey red is the | staple and profitable crop in this ter- ' ritory and next year will show a tre-! mendous yield of this famous cereal,; which is rapidly increasing in value as ! a milling jiroduct. [ The directors of the farmers' eleva tor in Judith Gap have ordered scales and a car loader for Oxford, for the benefit of the stockholders who find that hauling their grain to Judith Gap is too much of a burden. Nearly everybody in the Oxford country are stockholders in the elevator here and ' an effort will be made soon to sell stock to all of them. This loader will be a great convenience to the Oxford people. j ROUNDUP. (Roundup Tribune f I Wm.

A considerable element of mystery attaches to the disappearance of Miss Effie Stall, who had been employed for about five weeks as book-keeper in the Schrump store. On Saturday Miss Stall received a letter from a girl friend in San Francisco, and short ly thereafter it was noticed that she had been weeping. Later in the day she put her desk in order, locked the safe and went to her room in the hos pital building, failing to return to her work. On Monday Mr. Schrump start ed an investigation, and it was learned that the young lady had not been seen about the hospital since Saturday afternoon. A few of her personal be longings were missing, but her suit cases and the greater part of her clothing were still in her room. Later it was reported that she had been seen in the caboose of a westbound freight which left the city about 4 o'clock Sat urday.

URGES DEEP PLOWING. the soil is simply to stir up soil enough on the surface with which to cover the seed and depend upon the plant to product results. Shallow plowing has been indulged in until the underlying soil has become so compact and hard that it is almost impossible to do any deeper plowing with the ordinary plow. In fact, this underlying soil has become so hard that the roots of the grain cannot Minnesota Farmer Makes Some Ex periments and Has Excellent Results. The following article, which recent ly appeared in The Farmer, an agri cultural paper published in St. Paul, will be of interest here: The question of reclaiming our de pleted soils and quack grass infested fields is one of vital importance to the farmers of the Middle and Western states. The present method of tilling penetrate it, nor can the moisture set tie down through it, consequently erosion and evaporation take place, and three-fourths of our rainfall is lost—completely lost—and not only that, but it has carried off much of the best soil and available plant food with it. We have had an abundance of rain this season and the man with shallow plowed fields will claim that his meth od is all right. He will get a fair crop and will be quite content; and the man that plowed deep will get a "bumper" crop and he, too, will feel fully satisfled - Where land is plowed twelve inches deep we have three times tlle space for the retention of moisture that we have in a four-inch furrow > thereby conserving sufficient moisture to carry the crop through any period of drouth, and have enlarged the feeding ground for the roots three fold over that of a four-inch furrow, which explains why the deep tilling will produce increased yields. I have been experimenting with deep tillage for the past three years and in every instance it has produced increased yields. My neighbors told me that I was ruining my field, that I would not raise anything for three or four years. I plowed 16 to 18 Inches deep in the fall of 1910, ana raised the best wheat in 1911 that I ever raised. Our lands will produce wheat just as bountifully as they did forty years ago if we will but properly till or dig up that "new" farm lying just underneath the one that we have been "mining" for so many years. I am thoroughly convinced of this fact and feel warranted in stating that I am going to produce an average of 35 bushels of number one wheat to the acre on this old worn-out, abandoned, quack-grass farm.

Williams Exclusive Agents in Lewistown Substitute From Sea Fish. press statement forwarded A press statement forwarded by Consul Frank W. Mahin, of Amster dam, tells .of a factory established at! Ymuiden, at the mouth of the North 1 Sea Canal in Holland, to produce a j substitute for rubber, and it is re -1 ported that the company operating the i factory has succeeded in producing a j substance having the qualities of rub- \ her and some special advantages over | the genuine. While the process is a ; secret, the principal ingredient is said j to be fresh sea fish, which are broughtj to Ymuiden in vast quantities by the Dutch fishing fleets. According to re port, 15 to 16 per cent of natural rub ber is added to the fish, and the re sult is a substance as flexible and elastic as rubber, but much cheaper— about as 1.25 to 8 in price, compared with real rubber. The low price of this product will be caused partly by the by-products which are possible, for it is said that much albumen will be made from the fish and that half ot the factory is arranged for the manu facture of fertilizer. Banana Flour. Banana flour specially prepared as a tonic food is making its appearance in Paris under the name of Bananeine. It is to be remarked that within a re cent period this fruit was but little used in France, and even now its con sumption is limited. However, meas ures are being taken to increase the importation, and it is said that 70 ves sels were recently fitted up for bring ing the fruit to Europe. Banana flour has a much more extended use in England than on the continent, but efforts are now made to introduce it in France owing to its great nutritious value. The bananeine is a prepara tion made for convenient use, and it contains 60 per cent of banana flour, this being put through a sterilizing process at the proper heat. Designs for New Capital.
