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
"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
"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

Palestine and re-settle the Hebrews
there, presided at the morning sitting of

NO MORE RUSHES
Three Serious Mishaps Call Forth a
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. Frank Marshall, a freshman, had
his right leg broken Just above the an
kle. Conlon .another freshman, also came
out of the combat with a broken leg.

A COTTAGE BURNED
Fire Started From a Candle Carried
Into a Closet
Fire broke out in a six-room cottage
occupied by I. 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

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

soon the whoie interior of the building
was on fire. The roof of the house was

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."
"Oh, nowhere in particular."
"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?"
"Well, simply because."
"Going to be gone long?"
"I don't know."
"Anybody going with you?"
"Well, it's strange that you can't be
content to stay at home a few minutes.
Don't be gone long, will you?"
"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

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.

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.—

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
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
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

at a loss for words for a minute'or two

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

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!" —
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
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
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

BURGLARS AT WORK
j OPERATING IN THE SOUTHWEST
PART OF THE CITY
Numerous Reports of Their Depreda
tions Have Been Made to the
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 .
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.
