Crowds 7/isit “ Srassland.
By a staff correspondence of the Duluth News Tribune, ‘writing from Iron River in Monday, says:—Presidential cam paigns bring out instances of fast railroading by celebrated orators and candidates, but the car “Grassland, ’ the widely known exhibit on wheels oi the Northern Wisconsin Farm ers’ Association is closing a tour today and tomorrow that surpasses anything of the kind fever known. The car reached here Saturday night and was at once illuminated by Manager Tomlinson of the local electric light plant. It was soon filled with people and was admired by large crowds yes terday and last night. Today it is to be at Lake Nebagamon and tomorrow it will visit the Douglas county towns between here and Superior. At the big meeting of the association at’Ashland March 7, it was decided to send the Grassland to all of the towns in the four lake shore counties to get renewals of last year s 2.000 members and as many new members as possible. There was a hurry about the matter, as there is a bill pend ing before the Wisnnsoin legislature to give the Farmer’s association $2.500 provided it raises for this year a member ship of 2,500. The bill comes up for hearing next Thursday. Secretary Fairall Speaks. Secrectary Fairall, in charge of the expedition, was a tired man when he got here. He said to die News Tribune: U I did not think it possible to do it, but it is a fact that within eight days the car has visited every city and town that has a railroad, in the counties of Ashland, Bayfield and Iron and there have passed through the car not less than 5,000 of our home people. Really this is a low estimate. “You see, our meeting was Tuesday, March 7. On Thursday following, the car still being at Ashland, we began work in that city. By Friday noon, under the direction of our committeeman there, J. C. Roeem, we got nearly members as a starter. At 2p m Friday we were at Bayfield, over the Omaha, and by 11 o’clock next morning we had 100 more members. This was done through the effective work of the charm an of our executive committee, Hon. William Knight, A. K. Wilkinson, the Banker, and Mayor Wacli smuth. 1 “At 3 o’clock Saturday afternoon the businessmen of Washburn, headed by D. M. Maxcy, who weieintheear wanted to know what was expected of Washburn, and with in a few hours 150 members were secured —all that were asked for. “Over Sunday the car entertained hundreds at Washburn and the same evening it ran into Iron county at Saxton. “Iron county is the youngest of the allied counties in this remarkable farmers’ and timber county, but it has splen did farming land and it is being developed rapidly around Saxon. Here another of the members of the excutive com mittee took us in hand, Sheriff DeFer, the busiest, but one of the best of the men of North Wisconsin. Before Monday noon he had us over sixty members and more coming. School Children At Car. “At Saxon, Monday morning, the car was visited by the school children of the town, headed by their teachers; I might say that at Ashland and Bayfield, the chiMren came in bodies accompanied by their teachers. The higher grade children were armed with paper and pencil, to take notes of the products in the car in order to write essays that they would lecture to the pupils on the resources of North Wis consin as illustrated by the Grassland. This would be well, for at nearly all of our home towns and elsewhere throughout the state, it was remarkable to us the number of children who could not distinguish between wheat, oats, flax or barley. “We reached Hurley Monday atnxm. Mayor M. G. Me* Gheehan, our committee man, met us and had everything from electricity down at hand. A committee of business men took up the matter of memberships and at noon the next day we had over 100 added to our list and more in view. “Time was getting short for the Grassland, and when we switched from the Northwestern to the Wisconsin Central we liad two towns we had overlooked in going west again into Ashland county. These were Iron Belt and Upson. A *‘special” was soon made for the “Grassland” and with Trainmaster Johnstone, a veteran railroad man in charge, a husky locomotive was pulling out in great shape. At* Iron Belt, a mining town, we had a fine crowd and with Captain Rove, our vice-president in charge the names came in lively, over twenty-five signed, and other giving their names. New Members Added. “We had only ten minutes at Upson, but Vice-Presiden Mike White was on hand with an array of members, Then we went to Mellen, where we were billed for 3 o’clock and where the enter prising'people were on hand to meet us. Committeeman Peck and Dr. Lockhart, assisted by Agent Beach and Landlord Simonds, by early Wednesday morning bad us 100 members. “Wednesday we visited Butternut and Glidden and had another hundred to our credit and Thursday forenoon at Highbridge we had a big turn-out of farmers, and with the assistance of J. J. McGheehan, the biggest farmer in our counties, the list was swelled at least fifty. “Friday and Saturday we visited the villages on the Omaha southwest of Ashland. They are all in Bayfield coun ty and added 100 to our membership. This is stili a heavy timbered section, but the land is rich and farmers will soon get in. - * , “At Bibon the South Shore people gave us a special en gine and we soon reached Iron River.

The Revue Seientifique has been ask ing what muscles tire soonest, with the conclusion that it is not the muscles in use, but those under tension, although doing no work. The writer urges us to use the arms and legs less and the back and neck more, for on them comes the greatest strain. He has been asking men of all occupations the same ques tions: When you have worked much, where do you feel tired? Before you were trained did fatigue show itself in the same regions? All the answers point to the same conclusions. The baker who kneads dough all night complains of fatigue in his legs. The blacksmith is tired.* not in his arms and shoulders, but in bis back and loins. The young soldier, after a march, is especially tired hi the back of the neck, even if he has carried no knapsack. The oarsman who is in perfect train ing after prolonged exercise gets tired in his calves and insteps. These facts point to the conclusion that in any continued effort we should try to alter the habit of contraction. That is to say, the body, like the mind, needs change of work. A Mfrhtninrflrmi Rarebit. A bachelor whose skill at getting up dainty supper dishes assures him plen ty of company in the evenings is re uponsible for a substitute for the Welsh rabbit that is free from nightmare. He covers lightly toasted bread with finely grated cheese and Instead of slipping it in the oven places it beneath the flame of the gas broiler until the cheese has been toasted a light brown. If a good cream cheese is used there is not the slightest suggestion of cog giness or greasiness, and even those to whom a rabbit means a night of trou bled dreams may indulge in this with no fear of evil consequences. The trick lies in the grating of the cheese. Broken into bits, it would melt into a pasty mass. Finely divided, each particle should be individually toasted before it has a chance to melt down, and in that state it is readily assimilat ed.—New York Press. ' The Choice of a Wife. A German professor selects a woman who can merely stew prunes not be cause stewing prunes and reading Fro clus make a delightful harmony, but because he wants his prunes stewed for him and chooses to read Proclus by himself. A fullness of sympathy, a sharing of life one with another, is Scarcely ever looked for except in a narrow, conventional sense. Men like to come home and find a blazing fire and a smiling face and an hour of re laxation. Their serious thoughts and earnest aims in life they keep on one side. And this is the carrying out of love and marriage almost everywhere In the world, and this the degrading of women by both.—From One of Mrs. Browning’s Letters, 1846. The Value of New Ideas. The recognition of the value of anew Idea in regard to a business point is leading employers 'to encourage criti cisms and suggestions from employees in respect to the details of the busi ness, thus utilizing their microscopic view rather than depending solely on the birdseye view which is taken by the manager. A friendly feeling re sults from this attitude, and the em ployee takes a deeper interest in h ; s work, developing his own capacity and helping the business. To see bis idea carried out by his superiors puts new life into him and. adds new enthusiasm to his efforts.—Success. At the Head. Bishop Polk, afterward General Polk, was one of those men who wear the seal of authority upon their brows. On one of his episcopal visitations be stopped for the night at a country inn, when his host at once addressed him as general. “No, my friend,” said Polk. “You are mistaken. I am not a soldier.” “Judge, then?” hazarded the innkeep er. “That is not the title given me by those who know me,” replied Polk, be ginning to be amused. "Bishop, then?” “Right,” said Polk, laughing. “Well, I knew you were at the head of your profession, whatever it was,” said the innkeeper. 1 Wine of Cardui 1 I Cured Her. 1 1§ 213 South Prior Street, Mm |J| Atlanta, Ga., March 21,1903. ||l B I suffered for four months with ||i B extreme nervousness and lassitude. ||g mS I had a sinking feeling in my !|§ |H stomach which no medicine seemed pi H to relieve, and losing my appetite E|| -[-■ I became weak and lost my vital- R ity.

There is nothing • sell-satisfying as the bountiful rewards which await the man wh# struggles and conquers. Fame, hn*r, wealth and power are the laurels whieh Success bestows. The present century is replete with examples of yeung men. who, alone and unaided, have risen to ©the very highest pin nacle of success in their chosen calling. •Here wc have the striking example of the presi dent of the largest manufacturing corpora tion in the world, rising to this position from one of the lowest places in the Company's service. Again,—the young man who came to this country over thirty years ago, penniless and friendless, and who, during the first two years, earned only #6OO, working beside a tank foul with the smell of oil ; but to-day, there is scarcely a drop of oil consumed in this country which has not been purchased from his stupendous organization, the Standard Oil Company. In another walk of life, we see at the head of a great college, a man who chopped wood to pay his way through school. .■** £ The great captains of industry of to day were the poor boys of thirty years ago. It was not a wealthy parent nor an influential friend who started these men on the road to fortune; they made their own opportunities ; they fought their own battles ; they have won. What is, the secret of their success? What is that irresistible force which has enabled them to overcome all obstacles, to surpass their fellow-men? Every am bitious young man is searching for this secret. He believes that honesty, so briety, perseverance, and determination are essentials in the foundation on which to build a successful career, and yet he realizes that lie must possess something more than these mere prerequisites if he would achieve conspicuous success Those who haye studied the lives of successful men will tell you that they all possessed a certain force of character — the power to mould the opinions and direct the actions of others. John D. Rockefeller has often said that he at tributes his success largely to his ability to influence and control'the minds of men. How to acquire that power is told by Mr. Edward Bok in his Lecture, “Keys to Success,” the most inspiring address to young men ever heard from an American platform. Mr. Bok does not preach theory; he gives good, sound, ivlvict. lie tells young men they can develop those quali pensable to success, and win both * and power. Every word is suggestive and inspiring. * •The Publishers of this Lecture, John D. Morris and Company, 1203 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, Pa., are desirous that every ambitious young man should possess a copy of ‘‘Keys to Success,” and they will send, complimentary, a complete copy of till Address to every reader who will write for it, mentioning this pape' and enclosing six cents to cover mailing expenses. “Keys to Suc cess ” is one of the many inspiring speeches contained in ‘‘Modern Elo quence,” a library of famous After-Din ner Speeches, Addresses and Lectures, in ten volumes, edited by the Hon. Thomas B.
