SOIL TILLERS Open the Regular Annual Congress ATTENDANCE RATHER SMALL BUT MORE WILL BE PRESENT TODAY President Clayton Delivers an Ad dress, Outlining the Legislation Needed by Farmers Associated Press Special Wire. ST. PAUL, August 31.—The seven teenth meeting of the Farmers' National Congress of the United States was called to order at the capital by President B F. Clayton of Indianola, lowa, this morning. The opening session was not largely attended compared with what Is expected tomorrow. Following an invo cation by Archbishop Ireland the con gress was greeted on behalf of the city by Mayer Doran. on behalf of the State Agricultural Society by President Weav er, on behalf of the State by Governor Clough, and after responses by J. M Stahl of Illinois and Hon. B. F. Clayton, the session closed with the annual ad dress of President Clayton. In the course of his earnest remarks, in which he reviewed 1 the history and work of the organization, he said he was not an alarmist, but hoped the hour would never come when Congress would purposely give its consent to the build ing up of trusts, and concluded by say ing: "There as many questions upon which we should take action. Notably among these Is the enlargement of the agricul tural department, giving it the power and the means by which It can open up every possible avenue of trade for Amer ican farm products, and to extend to It the same protection accorded to other Interests. "The amendment of our interstate com merce law and anti-trust measures, giv ing the proper officer the right and to make It his duty to send for persons ar.d papers ar.d compel the attendance if witnesses or lo place them behind the prison bars, regardless of the millions they may possess. The extension of free mail delivery to the rural districts; the enlargement of the Weather Bureau; a more systematic crop statistics, the reclamation of the arid and semi-arid lands, and to restrict Boards' of Trades to a point where they wiil prevent fraud in dealing in options, and to entirely stop the bucket shop disgrace. "We shouldi ask the Congress of the United States to make sufficient appro priation to prevent the Importation of infected livestock and to stamp out ex isting diseases. You gentlemen, hailing from al! parts of the country, know much belter than I can tell you the importance of urging prompt action regarding every obstacle preventing the success of the farmer. The Congress of the United States, when placed in possession of factsfl has been quick to eradicate ex isting evils. We should demand no leg islation; we should seek to dor.o damage to other legitimate enterprises; but we should insist upon the recognition of our interests, and we should be satisfied with nothing less." ZION CONGRESS Jews Still Hope to Settle in Palestine in the Near Future BASLE, Aug. 31.—Dr. Theodore Her sel, originator of the project to purchase Palestine and re-settle the Hebrews there, presided at the morning sitting of the Zionist congress today.

NO MORE RUSHES Three Serious Mishaps Call Forth a Prohibition BERKELEY, Aug. 31.—There will be no more "rushes" at the University of California if President Kellogg's latest mandate is obeyed. Half dazed, his jaw broken, hip face a bleeding mass. Benja min Kurtz, a newly entered freshman, was found wandering about the campus On Monday night after the rush between the two lower classes. Inthe struggle some one put his heel on Kurtz' face and as a result he is disfig ured for life and may have sustained an injury of the brain. An examination showed that a piece of the flesh had been torn from one nostril. The upper lip hung only by a shred and the ragged na ture of the tear made the injury the more serious. All the front teeth were gone. Four teeth had hern knocked out of the ■lower jaw and the bone in which they -.ha*d been imbedded was broken nut with * them. Both the upper and lower jaw were smashed and the flesh of all the face crushed and bleeding. There were two other serious casual ties.

Silton at 1460 Temple street at 8 oclock last night, and the building was almost destroyed, entail ing a loss of probably $SOO. An alarm was turned, in and 1 the department re sponded promptly, but the llames had already obtained considerable headway. The fire started from a candle which was carried into the closet by Mrs. Silton, who accidentally allowed the tlame to be communicated to some clothing hang ing on the wail. This flamed up and soon the whoie interior of the building was on fire. The roof of the house was burned off and, the whole structure al- j most ruined. Why Man Is Weary A good many hundreds and even thou sands of long-suffering husbands can bear sorrowful testimony to the fact that this is the sort of catechism the wives of their bosoms subject them to every time they put their hats on to go out in the evening. "Where are you going?" "Oh, I'm going out for a few minutes." "Where?" "Oh, nowhere in particular." "What for?" "Oh, nothing." "Why do you go, then?" "Well, 1 want to go; that's why." "Do you have to go?" "I don't know that I do." "Why do you go, then?" "Because." "Because what?" "Well, simply because." "Going to be gone long?" "No." "How long?" "I don't know." "Anybody going with you?" "No." "Well, it's strange that you can't be content to stay at home a few minutes. Don't be gone long, will you?" "No." "See that you don't. " This is one reason that so many mar riages are a dead, fla: lizzie and failure. Champion Bag That Wards Off Chills "An almost certain preventive of chills, as far as children are concerned," vol unteered a professional nurse, "is to have the children wear a small camphor bag under their clothing next to the body. A penny's worth of camphor is ail that is needed. My plan is to put a piece of camphor as large as a chestnut in a small bag. This will last a week or so. The smell of the camphor is not an un pleasant one. I do not know whether it is the smell of the camphor or the stimu lating effect that keeps the chills off. but my experience has been that children, andl especially those who live in the coun try, escape chills, which are so preva lent in the autumn season, when this pre caution is taken. Camphor will ward off other troubles to which children are often very susceptible. The preventive is an easy one to try, and I am sure that those who try it with the chilcaren will thank me for my suggestion."—Wash ington Evening Star. Taxes on Banks SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 31— Judge Sewell in the superior court today ren dered an opinion in the suit of the First National bank of San Francisco to re cover $8290 paid under protest for taxes en personal property. The bank official:' claimed that under the national bank ing act the state had no author.iy to levy taxes on the personal property of national banks. Judge Sewell held ad versely to that claim. He construed the law exempting national banks from pay ing taxes on personal property to apply only to the stock of the banks. Where Is Mrs. F. M. Martin?

HAVE NO FURTHER USE FOR MR. HARRITY In Spite of Bitter Opposition the Free Silver Democrats Control the State Convention Associated Press Special Wire. READING, Pa., Aug. 31—The Demo cratic state convention met in this city today and nominated Walter E. Ritter of Lycoming county for auditor general | and M, E. Brown of Biairsville for state treasurer. The matter of the selection of candidates was entirely overshadow ed by the fight to force the retirement of Mr. Harrity from the national commit tee. The opponents of Mr. Harrity suc ceeded in pushing through, by a vote of 290 to 130, a resolution endorsing James M. Guffee for his position. Mr. Har rity's friends contend that the state convention has no power to declare his seat in the national committee vacant, and that he will not surrender without a lUht. The morning session of the conven tion ended with a disgraceful row, dur ing which some delegates who did not like the way things were going climbed upon the stage and exchanged blows. A large detachment of police was on han.l in the afternoon and everything was serene. When the convention reassembled the committee on permanent organization reported the name ot R. W. Irwin of Washington for permanent chairman and recommended the continuation of the other temporary officers with the ex ception that C. W. Suliek of Northamp ton replace John T. Murphy as one of the secretaries. James Kerr of Clearfield, chairman of the resolutions committee, read the platform. Charles P. Donnelly of Philadelphia presented a minority report striking out a plank commending the recommenda tion cf James M. Guffee as national committeeman in place of William F. Harrity. He pleaded with the dele gates to confine their work to state is sues and not attempt to create a fac tional division by offering an insult to Mr. Harrity. L. McQuestlon of Butler county de fended the plank. He said true Democ racy of the state should not retain in a position of honor a man who had not been true to Democratic principles or In accordance with the candidates and platform. The roll was then called on motion of Mr. Donnelly to strike out the Guffee plank from the platfotm. The result of the vote sustained the majority report by 290 to 134. Absent ar.d not voting. 11. The Philadelphia delegation stood 41 to 43 in favor of Mr. Harrity. Nomination of candidates was then next in order, i Ex-Mayor William K. Verbeke of Dau phin county and ex-Assemblyman Wal | ter E. Ritter were named for auditor ! general. The vote resulted: Ritter, 254; 1 Verbeke, 43; and the former was de | clared the nominee. For the office of state treasurer Mayor Jacob Weidel of Reading and M. E. Brown of Blairsville were named. Mr. j Brown was the fortunate candidate by : a vote of 228 to 127. The convention, at 5:55 p. m., adjourn ed sine die. It was stated late tonight that Mr. Rit ter, the nominee for auditor general, has telegraphed chairman Gorman that he has been nominated without his con sent and declined to run. The report could not be verified. KAISER WILHELM'S BLACK EYE The French Story of How Germany's Ruler Came by It Prof. R. A. Minckwitz of the Central high school arrived home this morning from a two months' pleasure trip in Eng land, Holland ar.d Germany. Prof. Minckwitz says the Germans do not like the present emperor. "He does and says too many things at once. Not long ago he had a black eye, He explained it by saying a sailyard had fallen and struck him. Two days later a lieutenant was found in the ocean. The German papers said he rode his bicycle over the cliff and was drowned. A short time after this a French paper published the story in an entirely different way, saying the emperor had Insulted the lieutenant, who ln turn had hit him in the eye and then committed suicide. No attempt has been made to explain this." Prof. Minckwitz left Bremen on Aug. 10, thus making a quick trip. He was pleased when told that the vertical sys tem of handwriting would be taught In the Kansas City schools. "It Is the correct system," he said.— Kansas City Star. Live Canaries for Cotillon Favors A large cotillon was given Saturday night at Bar Harbor by Mrs. Pulitzer for Miss Lucille Pulitzer and Ralph, eld est son of the house. The terrace and grounds were hung with colored lan terns; the dancing room, which is hung with crimson satin, was transformed into a ballroom, with traceries of smilax forming an empire frieze and a curtain of the same delicate vine screening the orchestra from view. Music was in the conservatory, just off the ballroom. The cotillon was led by Mr. Morrell, favors being live canaries in gilded cages, X-ray skeletons tied up with gay ribbons, fishing rods, clusters of roses and all sorts of quaint conceits to help the fun of the moment. Supper was served in one of the drawing room;-, which Is hung with rose pink satin and elaborately decorated with butterflies, Mrs. Pulitzer presiding at a table in the center. The decorations were pink.— New York Herald.

A STORY OF THE BABIES The Sherman Children and How the Secretary Received Them Suggested by Secretary Sherman's late illness and his visit to his daughter, Mr. J. W. Dwyer sends the following to the editor of the Inter-Ocean. It shoulu be said that Mr. Dwyer was for a long time prominent in Ohio politics, and a friend of the- Shermans. For the last fif teen or twenty years he has lived on a ranch In New Mexico. Mr. Dwyer writes as follows: In connection with the illness of our eld and mutual friend. John Sherman, who is now visiting "his daughter," 1 would relate a matter of interest in that connection. As most of us know, Mr. and Mrs. Sherman were childless. A time came when, after much consideration and thought, they decided to adopt a child and heir. Mrs. Sherman requested some of her Intimate frleds to assist in the search of a desirable infant, one hon estly ar.d gently born, and without par ents to follow on after and embarrass. A friend in New York subsequently tele graphed her to come at once and take her choice of two beautiful babies. There was great excitement in the Sherman home pending Mrs. Sherman's trip to New York after the baby. On the next day she telegraphed her husband: "Will be home this afternoon; send carriage to the depot." The carriage went ar.d the senator remained at home, walking the floor, looking at his watch, wathclng oach carriage as It came In sight. The train was a little late. He was becom ing nervously anxious. Finally the car riage hove ln sight: he marched out to meet it at the curb, threw open the door. There was Mrs. Sherman and a nurse, each stepping out with a baby in arms. Sucrj an expression as came over that Stern Sherman face was never seen be fore. It could not be described. He was at a loss for words for a minute'or two ar.d Anally was able to stammer, "Wife, what does this mean?" "Husband, they were so pretty and so much alike that I could not make a choice, and so I se lected both." They were twin girl ba bies. For the next few days it was a show to watch Mr. Sherman, as he ca ressed and enjoyed the newcomers. One of the twins sickened and died within a few weeks, and the other is now"hle daughter," Mrs. McCullom, with wjom he is visiting. TEA WAS TEA TO HIM It Had to Have Plenty of Milk and Sugar in It, Too A physician once ordered a Scotch minister to drink beef tea. The next day, when the doctor called, the patient com plained that the new drink had made him 111. "Why, sir," said the doctor, "that can't be; I'll try it myself!" As he spoke he poured some of the beef tea into a food-warmer. Then, having warmed it he tasted it, smacked his lips and said: "Excellent! Excellent!" "Man," said the minister, "is that the way ye sup It?" "Of course. What other way should it be supped? It is excellent!" "It may be gude that way, doctor; but try it wi' the cream and s>ugar, man. Try it wi' that, and see hoo ye like it!" — Weekly Telegraph. Ex-Senator Doolittle's Joke The old senator was a great story teller and related' many interesting and humorous accounts of what he had seen in public life. One of his favorite otor ies was at the expense of Senator Fes senden, a warm personal friend. The judge and' Senator Fessenden had. been appointed on a commission with several others to treat with the variouschiefs of the Sioux nation on an important Indlian question of the day. It was long before railways had. been introduced l into the far west, and the members of the com mission had to travel on horseback. Judge Doolittle was chairman of the commission, but at the conference shift ed the duty to the shoulders of Senator Fessenden, who was highly pleased at the honor conferred on him. The judge, however, had heard of the peculiar re ception tendered by the Indians to the spokesman of any party of visiting whites. At the appointed time the two parties to the conference congregated. There were probably 200 Indian chiefs present with their wives. Senator Fessenden advanced to do the honors for the com missioners, when, to his dismay, the whole body of Indians'—squawsandiall— advanced and, after embracing the chairman, gave him, according to their custom, a welcoming kiss. Judge Doo little often said he thought that Fessen den never quite forgave him for the trick.—Syracuse Standard. Glass Cleaned Without Soap It Is not best to use soap on glass. Not that It clouds the glass in time, as some foolishly believe, but because it Is un necessary, and only makes more work. Wash glassware In hot water, as hot as the hand can bear. A little ammonia, which is hard on the hands, remember, will soften the water. Ground glass should be washed with soap, and a small brush will be necessary to get it clean. Never use anything but the cleanest tow els to polish the glassware, and If you would not have them covered with lint use only the Arm, fine towels.—Wash ington Evening Star. An Apt Illustration He was an inquisitive boy, much Inter ested in business methods, and had just been reading about the New York stock exchange. "Father," he said, "In order to buy and sell stocks have you actually got to be in Wall street?" "Not at all," replied the father; "you can live anywhere. In Washington, for instance." —Life. Idaho's Wheat King A special from Boise. Idaho, says: Lewiston, this state, lays claim to the wheat king of the northwest. J. P. Voll mer of that city has a wheat crop of 12,000 acres. This year, ln the best part of the North Idaho wheat belt, the yield will be large, conservatively estimatedtat thirty bushels to the acre, or a grand'to tal of 360,000 bushels.—Salt Lake City Herald. Swarms of grasshoppers, looking like streaks of silver ln the air, have passed ln a northeasterly direction over Wilbur, Wash, .lately. BURGLARS AT WORK j OPERATING IN THE SOUTHWEST PART OF THE CITY Numerous Reports of Their Depreda tions Have Been Made to the Police Department Burglars are again at work In the southwestern part of the city and nu merous reports of their depredations have been made to the police within the past few days: From the manner in which the work has been done It would seem that the burglars are the same ln almost every case. On Monday night the house of Edward Lownes at 918 Burling ton avenue was entered and all the rooms ransacked. The family is absent and it is r.ot known what waa taken. Mr. Lownes Is a eivi lenglneer and is engaged in surveying the route of the OJal Valley railroad. On Monday he took his family to OJal and closed his j house during their absence. At night j neighbors noticed that the gas was I lighted In the rooms, but supposed that the family had returned. Yesterday morning the door leading into the back yard was found standing open and the gas was still burning. The circum stances were so suspicious that an in vestigation was immediately made. It. was then seen that some marauder had been all through the house. Everything was topsy turvey and the contents of bureau drawers were scattered ln a pro-, miscuous heap over the floor. From the evidence it would seem that the burglar or burglars must have been frightened . away unexpectedly. Two other burglaries were committed j on Saturday night. The home of ex- Police Commissioner Cook at 849 South Bonnie Brae was- broken into during the absence of the family and a quantity of ; silverware taken. On the same night the residence of Maurice S. Hellman on South Hope street was entered and a considerable amount of plunder carried aw ay. Other reports have been made of barns which have been broken into and harness stolen. The police detectives are on the lookout for the perpetrators of these outrages and hope to speedily rut; them down. Bismarck Is Ill BERLIN*.
