REQUEST FOR BILL OF PARTICU LARS IN HAYWOOD CASE IS REFUSED. V WILL BE HARD TO GET JURY MANY WHO KNOW COMMUNITY SAY IT WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE TO GET JURY. Boise, Idaho. May 10. — By overrul ing yesterday the motion of the de fense for a bill of particulars setting forth what overt acts, if any, there were to connect the accused with the death of Former Governor Frank Steu nenberg. Judge Fremont Wood cf the district •court of Ada county, cleared the way for the trial of Win. D. Hay wood, secretary cf the Western Fede ration of Miners, which will begin this morning. Judge Wood held that the request of Haywood's counsel for a more explicit statement of the charges against the prisoners Came Too Late. In cases where hills of particulars are allowable, the judge declared, the motions must be made before the in dictments are pleaded to and before the cases are set for trial. Haywood is the first of the four men accused of complicity in the Steunen berg murder to ho selected for trial. The others, Moyer. Pettibone and Or chard, the last of whom is said to have confessed, will be tried as circum stances dictate, following the proceed ings against Haywood.

If a man were content to shave him self with a razor having a hard rub ber handle, as indeed most men are, he could buy one with a blade of ex cellent quality for a dollar; but there are razors far more expensive than this.

But $50 is not the limit of what one may pay for a gold-handled razor. If the handle were elaborately chased its cost might mount up to twice that, or $200 for a pair. There are also silver among those more expensive silver handled razors, which range in price for from $6.50 to $30 each; $0.50 being the price for one with a plain silver handle, while those more costly have their handles more or less elaborately chased or carved. A man who did not altogether like & hard rubber handled razor might find his fancy suited with one having a handle of Ivory, and an Ivory han lied razor need not necessarily be ex pensive; a razor with a plain ivory handle can be bought for $2. Of course any carving would add to the cost. Costly razors are unsually sold for jlfta.

What Shall We Do?-A|'ve Got to Build Granaries. A letter written to a Canadian Gov* eminent agent from Tipton, Indiana, is but one of many similar that are in the hands of the Canadian government agents whose privilege it is to offer one hundred and sixty acres of land free, anil low railway fares. But her# is a copy of the letter: "Tipton, Ind., Nov. 28, 1906. "At your earnest solicitation a party of us front Tipton left May 15 for Western Canada. Our interviews with you and a careful study of your liter ature led us to expect great things of your country when we should arrive there, and we wero not disappointed. We went prepared to make a careful examination of the country and Its re sources, and we did so. At early dawn the second morning out of Tipton we awoke in a now world. As far as the eyo could reach was an apparently limitless expanse of new sown wheat and prairie grasses. The vivid green of the wheat just beginning to stool out, and the inky blackness of the soil contrasted in a way beautiful to see. An hour or two later we steamed into Winnipeg. Here we found a num ber of surprises. A hundred thousand souls well housed, with every con venience that goes to make a modern up-to-date city—banks, hotels, news papers, stores, electrlo light, street railways, sewerage, waterworks, as phalt pavements, everything. With eyes and ears open we traveled for two thousand miles through Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, going out over the Canadian Pacific railway, via Calgary to Edmonton, and returning to Winnipeg over the Canadian North ern railway. In the meantime we made several side trips and stopped off at a number of points where we made drives Into the surrounding country. On every hand wero evi dences of prosperity. The growing wheat, oats, rye, flax, barley, not life tie patches, but great fields, many of them a square mile In extent, the three, five and sometimes seven-hor6e teams laying over an Inky black rib bon of yellow stubble, generally In fur* rows straight as gun barrels and at right angles from the roads stretching into the distance, contrasted strangely with our little fields at home. The towns both large and small were dou bly conspicuous, made so, first by their newness and second by the tow ering elevators necessary to hold the Immense crops of wheat grown In the immediate neighborhood. The newness, the thrift, the hustle^ the sound of saw and hammer, the tents housing owners of buildings In various stages of completion, the piles of household effects and agricultural Implements at the railway stations waiting to be hauled out to the "Claims," the occasional steam plow turning Us twenty or thirty acres a day, the sod house, the unpainted house of wood, the up-to-date modem residence with large red barn by, all those were seen everywhere we went, an earnest of prosperity and wealth to be. We talked with men and visited their places that four years ago was unbroken prairie. Their houses, barns, Implements and live stock were the equal of anything In Tipton Coun ty, and why not, when they were rais ing five, ten and twenty, yes. In one instance, forty thousand bushels of wheat a year. The fact that such large yields of wheat are raised so easily and so surely Impressed us very favorably. And when we saw men who four or five years ago com menced there with two or three thou sand dollars, and were now as well fixed and making money much easier and many times faster than lots of our acquaintances on Indiana farms fifty years cleared and valued at four times as much, we decided to Invest So we bought in partnership a little over two thousand acres, some of It Improved and in wheat. Before leaving Indiana we agreed that if the opportunities werq as great as they were represented to be, that we would buy, and own in partner ship a body of land, and leave one of our number to look after and operate it. This we accordingly did. Just before time to thresh I re ceived a letter from him. "What shall we do?" said lie; "I've got to build granaries. There's so much wheat that the railways are just swamped. -We can't get cars and the elevators are all full. I never saw anything like it." In reply we wrote, "Good for you. Go ahead and build; your story sounds better than the letters we used to get from our friends In Kansas when- they bewailed the fact that the hard wheat had been destroyed by the chinch bugs and the corn by hot winds, and that they must sell the stock for means to live on. Yes, build by all means." .And he did, and our wheat put in by a renter made twen ty-seven bushels per acre. Very truly yours, (Sd) A. G. BURKHART. (Sd) J. TRELOAR-TRESIDDER. (Sd) WALTER W. MOUNT.
