Nevlnson, a British news paper correspondent, writes aa follows of present day events In Baku, south ern Russia: "'Yoo parasiteT When you open a letter at breakfast and find that written at tbe top instead of 'Dear sir or 'My darling love' your at tention is immediately drawn to the contests. But here In Baku, If you fcappen to be tbe hardworking man ager of a rich field with lots of wells yielding some 200,000 pounds of oil apiece every twenty-four hours, you will ot be so much surprised. You will know at once what Is coming, and your first thought will be a visit to your banker's. 'Our agents, the letter goes on, 'will call on you tomorrow afternoon at 5 o'clock and you will give them the sum of $750. Should you refuse you will be killed tomorrow or next day. Should you betray our agents or give the smallest bint to the police the whole of your family will share your fate. Signed and sealed on behalf of the committee.' The seal is a rubber stamp in red, sometimes bear ing the words, 'Social Democratic Fed eration, sometimes 'Anarchist Com mune. The sum demanded varies con siderably. I think It is seldom over ' $1,000, for one must be reasonable in these matters, and usually it is less. I have known a popular and capable English manager to get off with $25, which is a ludicrous exchange for life. But when the agents ring at the door and aik the servant If you are at home and disengaged, the only thing to do la to pay. "For there is no pretense about the threats. Refusal or betrayal means death without pauee, probably within the day. It has been proved over and over again. It was proved last week In the case of a well known and pow erful manager who was murdered with revolvers. It was proved the day before yesterday when a Russian man ager was disemboweled with knives and lived a horrible time. Anyhow, if you think it worth while to live a little longer here below, you must pay and try to reclaim from the company. Whether the company will ever get anything by reclaiming from the Rus sian government heaven knows. The government is too busy with the trou blesome and expensive task of shoot ing its political opponents or seeding them to Siberia to undertake the pro tection of commonplace citizens who have no perilous notions about free dom, i "Most conspicuous men employ arm ed retainers to protect them or avenge their death. Some publish from time to time in the local papers a list of tbe men who will be at once assassinated if anything happens to themselves. This Is thought very efficacious and certainly helps to preserve the peace. I know one manager who boasts ho has. 200 men in his pay. each pledged to kill some one if the manager Is mur dered. rri;V may have exaggerated the number, but there Is no dmLt about tJ'-e fystem." A Cigar Store Secret. Every tobacconist has on his counter a machine for cutting off the ends of cigars. These machines are popular for the reason that they pay for them selves many times over every year. The ends that smokers cut off are carefully gathered from the counter, nd it takes but a few hundred of them to make a pound of good tobacco. This can be sold for 40 or SO cents. Some cigar store clerks are very so licitous to see that the patron does not overlook the cutting machine. They push it toward him, and he Is much Impressed with their politeness. These clerks have for a perquisite the ma chine's cuttlugs. This adds several dol lars weekly to their salaries. New Or leans Times-Democrat. Australia's Wealth In Sheep.

' Among the long distance men may be mentioned Nanny, Furnas. Winslow and Hutton. Hancock has been doing well in the pole vault. Smelser, This tlethwaite, Guyer and Walthal are do ing well in the weights. As has been said before, Earlham will take up a new departure in ath letics this spring, that is, intercolle giate baseball, and will probably Lave a schedule of six games. There has been very little base ball played at Earlham for several years, outside of a few class games, but as there are quite a number of base ball men in school this year, it is thought that they may be able to make a good showing. White, who is captain, has shown himself to be a pitcher of abil ity and Birch has also pitched some.

He re turns to .his little chanty after night fall. To the view of the foreigner-he never rests, and for this never ending labor he raises a crop of rice or corn that does not support his family for the year. His clothing consists of a loin cloth in summer and a coarse cotton suit in the winter. Farmers, like all la borers and artisans of China, work hard to live.

Poaeidon a Great Horse. In faroff Australia, where the sea sons are opposite to ours, horsemen are singing the praises of Poseidon, by Positano Jacinth. He has just accom plished winning the "triple" events the Derby, Caulfield cup and the Mel bourne cup. No horse of his age for years ever won these three big features before. Poseidon Is considered a worthy suc cessor to Carbine, the great race horse that won the Melbourne cup, with 145 pounds up, from forty-three opponents. Since then Carbine's progeny in Aus tralia and England have made his name still more famous. When Poseidon won the Caulfield cup by three lengthy from a field of twenty four his jockey, T. Clayton, sat perfect ly still, and never once was the colt touched with the whip. Considering that the fields In both the cups includ ed all the "quality" of the common- a ' . , . . i justified when they describe Poseidon j as "standing out boldly as one of the best three-year-olds seen out for many seasons."

FORM INDIANA LEAGUE TO PLAY SUNDAY DALL Manager Huckins Gets Rich mond Franchise. MEETING HELD YESTERDAY. Manager Harry Huckins of the Richmond baseball club was at Indian apolis yesterday in attendance at a meeting of baseball managers from Indiana cities, the purpose being to form a Sunday afternoon league. Al ready seven clubs have signified a j willingness to join the league and with an eighth yet to be chosen it is felt that an ideal circuit can be perfected. As the league now stands, Indianap olis will have two clubs, the Reserves and a team managed by Frank Quels- j ser. Logansport will have a team managed by J. N.Berry called the Ot- tos, while the other clubs and their j managers are Kokomo, George F. ; Traubue, Ft. Wayne, C. E. Barnett, and Anderson, William Norton. The constitution was framed and ' will come up for adoption at another meeting, to be held on the first Sun- j uay in April, wnen iorieiis win ds posted for the continuance of the i teams in the league until the season j closes. A. R. Kling was elected presi j dent, secretary and treasurer. j A schedule will be adopted at the next meeting. The season will start ' on April 29 and close the first week j in October. Sunday and holiday i games will be scheduled. On other ! idays the clubs will be permitted to maintained out of town pride more than from a financial standpoint. A silver cup will be the prize to the winner. Manager Huckins passed through Richmond last night on his return to Dayton from the meeting.

In a recent issue of the Scientific American an article appeared written by D. Allen Willey describing the Gila monster. The statement was made in the article that scientists had ques tioned whether its bite was fatally poisonous, as has been supposed. W. C. Barnes of Las Vegas. N. M., claims to know of two cases, in one of which death resulted. Mr. Barnes writes as follows: "The first man was in Tombstone, Ariz. The Gila was tied by the leg in a saloon as a curio, and a drunken gambler named Brown was teasing it. He carelessly stuck his first two fin gers into its mouth, which immediate ly closed down on them and could not be released until the reptile's head was cut off and the jaws cut apart. Brown suffered horrible agony for al most two days, and in spite of all ef forts he died. "The second case was in the fall of 18S9. Walter Vail started from the Empire ranch, near Benson, Ariz., to ride into town on horseback, some fif teen miles. A short distance from the ranch a monster was sluggishly drag ging its way across the road. Think ing to take rt in for a friend, he got down and killed it, or at least he thought he killed it. To carry It easily he tied it on his saddle behind him, using his saddle string for the purpose. As he loped along he thought to assure himself it hadn't dropped off by reach ing around behind him with his right hand and feeling for the monster. "It was there and not nearly as dead as he thought. His first finger went into the reptile's mouth clear to the knuckle, and instantly those jaws with the long, sharp, daggerlike teeth closed on Vail's finger. With bis left hand he managed to get his knife out and cut the saddle strings and then had to dissect the head and jaws to t , 7 get his finger from their grip "Vail then spurred his horse Into Benson and found an engine in the yards. A hasty exchange of telegrams with the division superintendent and Tucson took place, and in a few mo ments he was on the engine and rac ing over the road for Tucson, where an eminent surgeon resided at that time. Vail lay at death's door for two months, and that finger today Is use less and shriveled up from the effect of the bite." A Denatured Alcohol Teat. . A careful test of denatured alcohol was lately made by the driver of an automobile, who drove his machine from New York to Philadelphia with alcohol fuel. He found advantages and disadvantages In the use of it. The auto consumed three times as much al cohol as it would have consumed of gasoline, but a part of the excess was due to carelessness. The speed was less than gasoline would have given, and the power developed was less. But it is to be born In mind that the engine was not constructed to use alcohoL The new fuel is absolutely safe, and has a less disagreeable odor. On the whole, he got everything he expected j out of alcohol, and, although he does 1 not expect a general adoption of it for pleasure vehicles, he foresees a large use of it by the farmers of .the west.

In order to ratee chickens success fully it is very essential to begin with eggs which will hatch well and produce strong, vigorous chicks. If the germs are naturally weak, no amount of atten tion and good care during the incuba tion of tbe eggs and the brooding of the chicks will make up for the original lack of vigor. In spite of all that can be done the hatch will be poor if the germs are weak, and many of the chicks which do hatch will die. As one j cannot determine by an examination t rtS weTPthe thSl i SITO ' Strong Or WeaK, me OUiy lOing 41. lUilt lil done in practice is to se- I lect the breeding stock with such care and give"" it such attention that eggs suitable for hatching must of necessity result Bulletin West Virginia Station. Hog House Floors. A good board , floor, one that can be kept clean and is elevated enough to allow a circulation of air under it, would insure better health to the sow than the dirt floor covered with dust and dirt, says the Chicago Inter Ocean. Where the breeder regularly disinfects his houses and lots he will find that it is well nigh impossible to properly dis infect the dirt floor, and It Is almost Impossible to keep the bed clean and dry when it is made upon a dirt floor. On the other hand, disinfecting can be easily and successfully done where the floor Is of plank, and the bed can be kept dry a good deal longer. We have noticed that in nine cases in every ten of rheumatism among hogs the farmer keeps bis hogs upon the dirt floor. Sheep Easy to Keep. A few sheep could be kept on most of our farms, and we would not miss their feed In winter, and they would destroy a great many briers and weeds In summer. Where the stomach worm, scab and dogs can be controlled there Is no live stock that will pay near the profit of sheep. One man in Illinois reports a profit of $505 from seven acres of corn with rape sown at last cultivation fed to sheep. Show me sev en acres of cotton that will net that much and leave 90 per cent of the fer tilizing value of the crop on the land with no harvesting. Clover a Valuable Crop. Clover is good for feeding to live stock and also splendid for renovat ing or feeding the soil. There Is no farm that is not capable of being help ed by the growing and feeding on it of clover. This Is to be kept in mind and put In practice. Clover roots deep ly and so gets a large part of its sup port from the subsoil, and if the ground Is well filled with clover roots when the clover dies the enriching of the soil by those roots must be Immense. The roots produce a nitrogenous en riching with the hay added. Sheep Notes. Do not let anything annoy the ewes. Avoid feeding a ration that is consti pating. Oats and bran make an excellent ra tion for ewes with lamb. If the sire be so strongly bred as to Impart his characteristics to all his produce, the flock will soon become uniform In appearance. Whjle sheep may pay better than any other stock on poor, rough lands, if well managed they wlll also pay on smooth, rich land. Goats and Sheep Compared. Goats usually sell within a cent of sneep on the market. The packers buy hundreds of them, but never sell any goat meat. Of course they know a good piece of meat and eat them all. Cattle, sheep and goats are especial ly suited to the south as a surplus or money stock because they can con sume cottonseed meal and silage to a larger extent than any other animal.

The Troedel market is on a little is land in the heart of the old town of Nuremberg. Along tbe north branch of the river is an old, low eaved house with a little darkling doorway. When you have got so far you are met by a little old man a rusty little man who looks as though he were made of metal who lead you Into the great mysteri ous warehouse of toys. Bound all the walls they are ranged guns, cannons, motors, steamships, trumpets, sabers, and everywhere the soldiers. How many millions of metal soldiers have marched away from the Troedel market not even the rusty old (man could tell you mighty articles of pewter and tin. , Hundreds of regiments, of battalions, of divisions, are drawn up on the shelves, waiting for the day when they shall be seut out into battle. And with a kind of pride the rusty old man says, "They are edifying soldiers." That is the German way of putting it. What it means is that each army Illustrates a battle or a campaign the war of Troy, the campaigns of Alexander, the exploits of Coeur de Lion, the war of thirty years, the siege of Orleans, the victories of Na poleon, the battles of 1870 and (the one I liked best) that desperate battle In which a tiny tin hero with gleam ing teeth rough rode It up Sau Juan hill. In a word, the edifying Roldiers teach history, geography, strategy. Vance Thompson in Everyldy.'s. EATING IN PUBLIC. The Varied Sorrows of the Critical Man Who Dines Out. What chance has the diner out of being completely happy? The mere actions of eating and drinking are nei ther pretty nor conducive to showing people at their best. It is really a most uncouth sight to see a man or a woman stoking food. The necessity of being polite at the same time makes It uncomfortable as well. No sooner have you got into conversation with a pleasant woman than the soup in your mustache stops all inspiration. She despises you for your play with your napkin, and your mustache la out of shape. And who can feel that the evening is going to be what he hoped when he realizes that his shirt front is smirched with some relic of the meal? Indeed, dinner parties are really a struggle between eating and talking, a btruggle which does not always end, as do most things, in the survival of the fittest. As one can't speak with one's mouth full and first hunger must be appeased, conversation and eating go on rather as a game, the one person whipping up some food while the other is speaking and then in hi? turn speak ing in order to enable his partner to get some nourishment. To talk or to eat might be a sensible question at the beginning of dinner, but it is not one likely to be asked. One is seldom sure which is least worth sacrificing, the food or the converration. How much simpler it would be if we fed apari and Indulged in conversation after ward. Macmillan's. Shingling a House. And I looked and beheld seven car penters shingling a house.
