"THE BEST PLfCE TO BE POOR."
Some weeks ago we asked under
this title if a city-bred man with a
capital of $1hm or less could suc
ceed on a farm. That the question Is
oae of much popular interest Is in
dicated by the number of letters we
have received In reply, some of which
we have printed. While the replies
arc interesting, they do not make a
sufficiently definite answer to the
question They tell of the cheap
lands and the general advantages of
manv tactions of the country, and of
the nee for more and better agrieul
ture. One writer says that profes
sional men. clerk6 and those untrain
ed in farming make the best kind of
farmers after they get started An
other writer says that in his section
$1000 "will go along trays." Is "a
long ways" far enough so he can no
the rest ot the wa alone'' We think
It would be a great service if some
one of our readers could describe
with careful devotion to details just
how It can be done Remember, the
man with the .vIOOO la a city -bread
man, unacquainted by experience with
form life. Take him from any city
ycu please and locate him on a farm
in any section you please with a rea
sonable assurance of a continuing
sound roof over his head, and food
and clothes for himself and his fam
ily'. The best farmers In the United
States started with less than $1000
In most cases with less than $10
They were the Irish and (krman im
migrants who were straight from the
-hip to work as hired men on farms
Out of the $26 or $10 a month they
got in addition to their board they
saved enough to buy a few acres of
land. Is the city man of the present
generation too weak in fiber, too in
firm of purpose, too lacking In en
durance and initiative for this process?
I DANES EXPERIMENT
WITH TELEPHONE
in experimenting with telephones
surprising results were obtained by
a DaAMh enplneer named Petersen by
simply heating the transmitter. It
WSJ finind that this increased the vol
ume of sound very considerably.
In fact, a transmitter thus heated I
so increased the volume of sound that
the receiver laid on the table on the
cihor end of the line, delivered the
speech so plalnlv that all at a far
cornet of the big room awa from It
be,rd every word distinctly Refore
tb transmitter was heated this was
Impossible
Now Professor Hanover of the
Danish state experimental establish
ment has taken up tho matter and
finds that a simple apparatus may be
i made for heatlnc the micraphone
transmitter of a telephone and there
by enable messages to be transmitted
I - telephone a tnucb greater distance
thnn l possible under ordinary con
ditions The reason for this Is simple
enough. The heatlns of the micra
phone transmitter results In making
the air about It .rifled, and this nat
urally carries the sound better. For
telephones extending over high and

in o.ich places where thore lo diffi

OIL TRUST
EXISTS YET
Attorney General Mc
Reynolds Says Stan
dard Dissolution De
cree Does Not Meet
With the Intent of the
Sherman Law
Washington, Tune f Attorney
General MeReynolds said today that
he regards the Standard Oil dissolu
tion decree ;is inadequate to meet the
intent of the Sherman law. This was
the first definite indication of the
attorney general's attitude towards nn
investigation now belug conducted to
determine whether an "oil trust" still
exists.
His objections to the decree, like
those ho has expressed against the
tobacco trust decree, are based on
the grounds that a real dissolution
of a trust cannot be accomplished by
a distribution of the stock pro rata
among the same shareholders.
From Charles 13. Morrison adn Oli
ver E Pagan, his speclnl assistants,
the attorney general has heard the re
sults of their investigation of the oil
situation In taking further action un
der the Sherman law. Should he
reach the conclusion that a trust still
exists it is pointed out that three
plans of action arc open , to the at
torney general:
A civil suit for the dissolution of
any new combination; indictment of
Individuals or contempt of court pro
ceedings. If action Is taken, it is believed, it
will be more likely of a criminal nature.
IT PUZZLED HIM.

money as this before I married you?

COMPARATIVE
COST OF COPPER
General Manager James McNaugh
ton of the Calumet & Hecla Mining
company, who as an economical op
erator is outranked by few, if any. In
the field of copper mining, has pre
pared some very valuable statistics
bearing on the cost of producing cop
per In the ri it important districts
in the United States. He says-
"It is Interesting to compare the
results obtained In th copper min
ing district of Michigan with those
of other parts of the country, and for
convenience the various groups of
mines may be classified as follows:
The Michigan group, consisting of the
copper mines h the upper penin
sula of Michigan; the Montana group,
consisting of the copper mines In and
about Butte, the porphyry group, con
sisting of the porphyry mines of Utah.
Nevada and Arizona, and the south
western sulphide group, consisting of
the sulphide mines of Arizona and
Mexico.
'The most recent statistics avail
able are those for the year 1911. and
oven thoy are not unite complete,
but the fipures I will quote cover a
I product of approximately one billion
pounds of copper for the four groups
mentioned, out of a total of about
one billion four million pounds pro
duced and imported Into the United
States for that year. Comparing the
yield per ton of rock oro treated we
find that the Michigan group gives
an average of twenty and one-quarter
pounds per ton; the Montana
group sixty-one and tnree-quarter
pounds; the porphyry group about
twenty-two pounds, and the south
western sulphides seventy-four and
one-half pounds
"It would be extremely difficult to
make a comparison of ihe amount of
work expended In mining and mill
ing the average ton of rock or oro In
each of those groups, but It would
teem that on account ot" the great
depth and the narrowness of the lodes
the Michigan district would afford the
most difficult mining: Montana would
undoubtedly come next, with the
southwestern sulphides third, and the
poryhyry mines fast or the easiest to
mine by reason of their large sur
face deposits permitting In most in
stances the use of steam shovels, and
the shallowness and extent of those
deposits that are worked by under
ground methods. t
"During the year U'll the total av
erage cost per ton treated In each
of these groups was as follows Mich
igan group. $1.S5; Montana group.
i'i:i2, southwestern sulphide roup.
JS. It should be borne in mind, how
ever, that in thn Montana porphyry
and southwestern sulphide groups
quite large values in precious met-I

IS ON HER WAY TO THE UNITED STATES

Lady Sprlng-Rlce, wife of the new British ambassador to the United
States, is on her way to this country and will arrive within a few days.
She is a very charming hostess and no doubt will become a leader

:iIh are recovered, which values are!
accredited to the cost of producing,
a pound of copper; whereas the value j
of precious metals recovered from
mines In the Michigan group Is al
most negligible. In the Montana
roup, for Instance, the precious met-1
als for tho year 1911 amounted to I
:i . 26 cents per pound of copper pro-1
ducod; In the porphyry group the
preclbus metal value was 2 18 cental
P r pound of copper produced, and
in the southwestern sulphide group
1.17 cents.
Applying these credits we have the
following comparison of tho net cost
, of producing a pound of copper by
croups, Michigan, 9.19 cents: Mon
tana, 9 44 cents; porphyry, 7.98 cents;
iuithvestern sulphide. 9 03 conts.
"From this It can be seen th.t if
ii wi re not for the precious metal J
values In the other groups, the Mlch-
.m group would be the lowest cost
producers; or, In other words. If the
Comparison Is made on the basis of
copper alone and no credit Is given
for the precious metals recovered, the
roHnlts jrottld be as follows Mich
igan croup. 9.19 Cents; Montana group i
19 7n cents, porphyry group. 10 16
southwestern sulphide group. 10 .25 1
cents. The average net cost of pro
ducing this pound of copper is 8 96
enl Mlehlgnn. Montana and tho
southwestern sulphide averages are
sllght! In excess of this figure, which
Indicates that the real competition in
copper production is furnished by the
porphyry mines.
It has been argued that the costs,
published by some of the porphyry
mines are not wholly correct inas
much as certain charges, such as
"stripping account,' etc., have been
deferred and that the published costs
are lower than they should be It
is not to be presumed, however, that i
the Intelligent men In charge of these
properties are either fooling them
solves or attcmptlnc to fool the pub
lic, and for the purposes of this dis
cussion at least their figureB should'
be given duo consideration "
