LONDON, Dec. 29. The method3 by
which thousands of person are cheat
ed annually through the sale by deal
ers ,of antique furniture, draperies and
porcelain which are "faked," -were
shown recently when an antique deal
er was brought into court charged with
fraud. ' ' . '..
During the trial it was declared that
dealers sell thousands of pounds worth
of antiques every year to American
tourists viKitinst England, and that
probably less than five percent of the
purchases are real.
The methods of the antique dealers
in faking their wares are carried out
so skillfully that the experts differed
widely in their opinion of many of the
pieces brought into court. The favor
iie system of the crooked dealer is to
obtain a genuine antique of a certain
period, for instance a chair. This he
will take apart, and reconstruct a num
ber of new chairs of the same design,
each one containing a section of the
original chair. It was shown during
the hearing that an antique bedstead
had been taken to pieces, and that the
12 duplicates fashioned in accordance
with this system has sold for $5,000
The Farm and the Farmer
By William R. Sanborn
If every Indiana farmer who would
be benefited by spending "Farmers
Week" at Purdue should visit Lafay
ette on that occasion the town would
not hold them all. We have reached
that conclusion after a study of the
program, the most comprehensive yet
offered bv the state college of agri
culture. It is said to be "an entirely
new program," with several new fea
tures and including some of. the best
posted agricultural speakers in the
country, and one which will lend vari
ety and value to each session.
The sessions, which begin Monday
noon, Jan. 8, will close Friday evening,
and will last five full days. In that
brief space will be compressed a
whole lot of information that has been
gained by years of experience and
study along lines of the utmost inter
est to the tiller of the soil and the
erower of live stock
Necessary readjustments in Indiana
aericulture to suit present-day condi
tions, which is one of the big prob
lems before farmers of the state; im
provement of the Indiana farm home;
and marketing of farm products, are
thrpft of the leadine Questions to
come before the short course. Mon

In faking china the work is more, the first topic and Tuesday s to the
difficult. Here the dealer must make
copies conforming minutely ta the orig
inal and bearing the maker's signature.
' This requires a skill which few per
sons possess nowadays, and which
easily baffles the experts. ,
It is estimated that 60 percent of the
antiques now being shown In London
are not what they are represented to
Funeral services for Albert Cripe, of
Minneapolis, a native of Wayne coun

Cripe died Tuesday.
Mr. Cripe, who was a veteran of the
Civil war, had many friends in Rich

Mr. Cripe spent his early days at;
Dublin. At the begiuning of the Civil

Company C of the 84Lh Indiana Volun
teer Infantry. He was a model sol

as well as in the army for his kind
and charitable disposition.
Goes to Chicago
Soon after hfs return from the army
he went to Chicago where he took
charge of the daily circulation of the
Tribune, Times, and other papers. He
had occumulated a small fortune when
the great Chicago fire in 1871 swept
away his property and he had to make
a new beginning.
As a commercial traveler he often
visited Wayne county where he always
was greeted cordially by business men.
Of the two companies that went into
the 84th regiment, five still are living
here. They are: Amos Huddleston, of
Dublin. Frank Davenport, John Huff
man, Harry Hoover, and Charles R.
Unthank, of this city, all of whom were

That Mrs.. , Charlotte Clapp is in

Bradway, in Wayne circuit court. The

Wheat Sown from Airplane
" Doesn't exactly sourd reasonable but
the news from the Lake Tulare district
in California is that a lot of wheat is
being planted by airplane in the wet
bottom land sections bordering the
lake. The man making the test plant
ing carried 800 pounds of wheat anl
if the test proves a success it is ex
pected that 20,000 acres will be sown
in this manner this year The man
doing the work thiuks there will be
no need for touching the soil after the
sowing, believing tnat the fall from
the sky will bury the grain deep
enough for proper rooting.
There are farmers in the corn belt
who produce more corn every year
than does the entire state of Nevada,
which is credited with raising 30,000
bushels this year. Contrast this with
450,000,000 bushels in Iowa. The de
partment of agriculture tells us that
some corn is now grown in every
state of the Union and that this coun
try produces about three-fourths of
the world's crop. The average crop of
corn in tropical lonaa is Dut n.s
bushels, against 47 bushels in Connec
ticut. The average for the entire
country in the last 10 years has been
over 25 bushels.

miums, nine beautiful trophies are to

show at Columbia, Jan. 15 to 19. Two
gold watches are included among the
trophies, and the state trophy, which
stands 30 anches high, is one of the
finest ever awarded at any such show,
either state or national. This prize
is awarded every year, and winners
may hold it for one year, or until a
new winner claims the honor. The
names of all winners are engraved.
year after year, so that the trophy
stands as a record of the annual
event. The show will include wheat,
oats, soy beans, clover, cow peas and
grasses, and premiums are offered for
all the important seeds grown in the
state. The club membership also will
contest in the corn show.
During the week a lecture and dem
onstration will be given on gasoline
engine action and principles, both as
to cars and tractors, this being a fea

Marketing Service
O. E. Brafute, newly elected presi
dent of the American Farm Bureau
says that the co-operative marketing
department is to dominate the program
of work for the coming year. He has
given out a new slogan, and says
"Service through co-operative mar
keting that is the program of the
farm bureau for the next year. Co
operative marketing is trump. All the
departments, all the officials, and all
the employes of the American farm
bureau federation will be expected to
play to the trump card. Let there be
no doubt anywhere but that the chief
work of the entire organization for the
next year will be co-operative market
ing." The marketing committee has been
instructed to employ a director of the
cooperative marketing department at
once, inis man will spWt hit. nwn
staff. It is thought that
the total income of the A mprifan farm
bureau will now be devoted to this
work and that a staff of commodity
y?uiansis win De assigned to the vari
ous branches of th enew venture.
No More Organizers
The organization department is to be
discontinued. No more men will travel
the field in quest of members. Every
member in every state "belongs" as it
is, because every state pays a per
capita tax to the national organization.
The services of H. C. McKenzie as di
rector of research in taxation have
been discontinued and the work trans
ferred to the legislative department,
under the direction of Gray Silver, at

It has been ruled that the vice-nrps-
ident is to be at the call of the nresi-
dent at all times, and when he is deliv
ering addresses or otherwise engaged
in farm work he shall be paid $25 per
aay ana expenses. The president and
secretary are to employ legal counsel

No statement was made by the con

price were discussed.
Mr. Armour made his first public

that move. It was an explanation of
the formation of Armour and com

Mr. Armour is understood to have

mail was cancelled by hand each day.
This brings the total pieces of first
class mail cancelled during the week
to more than a quarter of a million.
These figures, however, do not tell
the entire tale, because hundreds of
pieces of prepaid mail, which do not
have to be cancelled, were handled !
amons the first-class mail, and on
Tuesday of this week, the day follow-'
ing Christmas, more than 21,000 pieces I
of first-class mail was run through i
the cancelling machine.
Comparison Shows Rush i
When one compares these facts with !
the announcement that an average to-!
tal of mail handled in a week is but
65,000, a fair idea of the rush business
is attained. Total amount of first
class mail handled during the Christ
mas week last year was 169,000 pieces,
or 41,000 fewer letters and cards than
were handled during the Christmas
wek this year. The largest number of
pieces of first-class mail ever handled
in one day was on Friday before Christ
mas when 50,000 pieces were run
through the cancelling machine. Forty
thousand pieces in one day was the
previous record.
Mailing of Christmas greetings this
year exceeded in quantity the total of
any previous year. . One minister in
this city is reported to have received
more than 400 Christmas greting cards
during Christmas week. In addition to
the large first-class mail business, the
postoffice also had to care for the other
classes of mail matter, working day
and night the Sunday before Christmas
and on Christmas day to distribute
parcels arriving at the office.
