Tennessee Farmer Says He Came

"It may pound unreasonable, and you

2.1 pounds," said J. 1». Williams, a well- !
known and prosperous farmer who re

Tille, Tenn.
"I had a bad case of stomach trou- ]

near knocking me out," continued Mr. ]
Williams. "It was something like ;
nervous indigestion. I began to go ;
down hill. It looked like the more !
medicine I took and the harder I tried
to get well, the worse I would get. We
had pretty near everything to eat, but
nothing tasted right, and I got so weak
and nervous I couldn't do anything.
"Before I had this spell I weighed
160 pounds, and kept fulling off until
I got down to where I only weighed
135 pounds.
"I am now back to my regular weight
again, and feel strong and well. My
appetite is simply fine now, and I don't

Combats Work of Agitators Among Foreigners
N EW YORK.—Mrs. T. D. M. Cardoza Is n little woman with a great mis
sion. Through her recent appointment as secretary to Mrs. Marian K.
Clark, chief investigator of the bureau of Industries and Immigration, she is
engaged in assisting the representa
tives of the New York state industrial
commission in carrying the ussuring
message of President Wilson, that no
one who obeys the law will be inter
fered with, to the great colonies ol
workmen subjects of the central Euro
pean powers who are settled in New
Mrs. Cardoza, who Is the wife of
a prominent Philadelphian, is probably
the wealthiest workingwoinan in New
York, nnd It is safe to say without an
actual census she is the only employee of a state bureau in the government
of the United States who presides over her own castle in Europe.
Mrs. Cardeza has become a workingwoinan with a regular job, and she
is quite willing that you should call it that, because she believes that tills is
tfee most effective way In which she can at present servo this country. |
In her work of assisting Mrs. Clark she travels from one great Industrial j
concern to another, addressing the men who work In the factories and assur- I
Ing them that If they go quietly about their business and do not engage in
any unlawful acts or take part In gatherings whose Intent is hostile to this
country they will be entirely safe and free from governmental molestation.
"Poor, bewildered people," said Mrs. Cardeza, "It is necessary that wo
should reach them before the agitators do. These foreign men and women
need someone to tell them lu their own language exactly what the president
said in his message. And it is necessary that they should he approached by
persons who understand not only the language but the point of view of the
European peasant.
"Nor Is it only for their sakes that the state industrial commission is
sending us from one great plant to another to address these men in friendly
fashion. It Is equally Important to this country. There are agitators here
from their own countries who would incite them to engage In undertaking?
that might cause untold harm In the United States."
Famous Horse's Last Days to Be Spent in Ease
S T. LOUIS, MO.—Chief, the sorrel horse driven for many years by Fire
Chief Sw'ingley before the automobile became the modern fire vehicle, Is
assured of a grassy pasture nnd nothing to do hut eat as long as he lives.
For several years Chief has been
pensioned by the city and wns given
his freedom in a pasture on Chesley
Island. Recently Comptroller Nolte
rented the island farm to Earl W.
Jones. Then Nolte fnced the problem
of what to do with Chief.
Nolte went to the island to bring
hack the city stock nnd equipment not
purchased by Jones. The subject of
Chief's pasturage was the last subject
brought up.
"Leave the old horse here nnd I
will keep him free of cost to the city as long as I live on the island," Jones
told Nolte. His offer was accepted immediately and the sentimental problem
was solved.
Chief Swingley bought Chief in 1S04 at the National stock yards In East
St. Louis and he became the official buggy horse for the chief. He galloped
to all fires with Chief Swingley for 14 years and was sent to the pasture
about eight years ago.
The fire chief never had an accident on the way to and from fires while
Chief was pulling his buggy. Chief absolutely refused to collide with a
street car and either stopped or beat the car across the crossing.
Chief Swingley frequently went to a theater. When a fire alarm sounded
his driver would drive to the theater and stop. Chief, apparently knowing
his master was inside, would whinny and the chief invariably answered
Chief was turned loose at fires and loafed about all night, if necessary,
but never did he leave until Chief Swingley returned to the buggy.

Cat an Incorrigible "Nighthawk," Says Woman
B ALTIMORE —Among the things which the members of the Joint committed
on police and jail of the city council learned about cats recently, when a j
public hearing was given on an ordinance to tax cats, was that it Is as ;
P 8 impossible to keep a cat In at night ;
us it Is to keep in a man. Miss Mary ;
Shearer of the Society for the Pre* !
vention of Cruelty to Animnls made
ties statement. It was in reply to;
statements by some men who favored
____ 1,1 V. ~ 1-^4
the ordinance that cats should be kept
in at night and not permitted to keep
the populace awake.
Some of the knowledge obtained
by the committee was:
Cats howl at night and keep peo>
pie awake.
Destroy gardens.
Play with rats instead of catching them.
Dig seeds out of gardens as fast as they are planted.
Kill birds.
Carry germs and spread disease.
The ladies who defended the rights of the "tabbies." however, did not
gee things in the same light as the men who urged a favorable report on
the ordinance.
Miss Nellie C. Williams said germs have no more affection for the fur
on the back of a cat than they have for the mustache of a man. "You would
not put a collar and a tag on a man's neck because he wore a mustache,
would you?"
It seemed that the several score women who w'ere present all wanted
to say something In defense of the rights of the felines.
Woman Thinks Running Elevator Is "Great Fun"
B UFF ABO.—Don't crowd, gents. All may have a ride. She enjoys rum ;
ning it immensely, and doubtless will be on the Job for many months .o :
come. If you will form in line and wait your turn, we will now introduce
Mrs. May Tyrrell, Buffalo's first wom
an elevator operator. She runs the
electric elevator in the new Colonnade
building in Pearl street, opposite St.
Paul's church.
"It's great fun," said Mrs. Tyrrell,
slawming the ground-floor door.
"There Is no reason at all why women
should not run ele—floors, please?—
for It Is a congenial occupation and
one that It not tiring. First floor I
"It took me only a few minutes to
learn, and—yes, sir, you'll find the
manager on the next floor—and running an elevator Is a pleasant sensation—
at least for a woman who Is a beginner at it. I know that top floor, watch
your 6tep, please."
There was nothing left to do but to step out.
B. B. Burbank, manager of the Colonnade building, said that he engaged
Mrs. Tyrrell because he had found trouble in getting an elevator boy that
would suit him.
"They have elevator girls In New York and Chicago, so I though. I
would try It out In Buffalo," he said. "It is such a success that managers
of one or two office buildings In Buffalo have been over here to see boW
practical It is."

My I>i-nr Buck:
Without a ilouht, old-timer, the one
piece rod is the ideal bait caster, hut
when it comes to toting it around, it
1 is the unhandiest article one could
find In a year's travel. You simply
i cannot tote it along on a trip without
: the haunting fear that someone will
assist you to break it, hut once on the
water with a little old one-piece split
! bamboo rod, It shows up like four-of-a
kind after a lean run. For the perma
j nent fishing camp or the chap that is
lucky enough to live right close to
! good fishing waters, there is no bet
ter rod than the one-piece.
For the two-piece rod there is but
1 one style of construction that should
be considered, and that is the short
; butt and long tip. A rod of this kind
i comes the nearest to having the same
j amount of action and strength as the
one-piece rod as the ferrule Is set well
down below the center, allowing the
strain to he distributed equally and
giving the bamboo a chance to spring
without being stiffened by a ferrule,
and the action killed. This short butt,
long-tip construction gives you a snap
py rod that shoots out the cast without
unnecessary strain on the wrists and
ami. In selecting a rod of two-piece
i construction, side-step the rod with»
the ferrule directly in the middle, the
point of greatest strain lu lauding a
Three-Piece Handy to Carry.
The main thing in favor of the
three-piece rod is the fact that you can
stick It in a suitcase and carry It with
out any bother. Every place you put
a ferrule on a rod kills that muet»
more resiliency in the bamboo. The
ferrule is unbendahle and at that point
comes the break when the loud on the
bamboo is too severe, this is a hun
dred to one shot and you can play it
clean across the hoard and never take
a chance on your money. Although
serrated ferrules are used In the more
1 expensive rods, they cannot eliminate
the severe strain which generally
» causes the rod to break either right
above or below the ferrule. Even at
! that, the three-piece rod is stronger
; than the two-piece rod when the fer
rule on the latter is in the middle.
: Early in the bait-casting game the
rods were gem-rally made either four
or four and u half feet in length, hut
as the sport grew in popularity, they
! stretched them up to six and a half
: feet, making all stops between. It is a
matter of personal choice as to length,
p roba biy tbe most popular size being

Fittings for the Rod.
The fittings of the rod are an Impor
tant feature—they not only add to the
life of the rod but also If of the right
kind, add to casting qualities, and ev
ery little help to lessen the effort and
work of casting makes quite a differ
ence in a few hours' fishing. The fer
rules should be of German silver—
they are stronger and better made
than the brass ferrules which ate gen

The selection of the hand grip, as
to style, lies between the single nnd
the double grip. After a day's cast
ing with the double grip you will won
der how you ever got along without it.
It is far more comfortable to fish
with, the upper grip giving you a
firmer and easier hold on the rod >Q
reeling in the line, arul ut the same
time eliminating the cramped position
of the left hand. If you have never
used the double grip, old man. treat
yourself to a good thing and select
that style In your next rod. In the
way of material, the solid cork grip,
which is really made of a series of
cork washers, makes the finest grip In
the game and it sure has a soft feel ta
the hand.
Of course you will want a locking
reel seat, the majority of rods have
them anyway and who wants to throw
his reel Into the drink right at the
time when he has a chance to hook the
