The work to which I was :?. was that of an assistant sampler.

Ordinarily lb? assistants wer?' to tarry the tl samples to the locked shells. In which they were to await collection by the appraistr's wagon. "Mum's the Word."

Mum's the word?then s mon?) ?noiigh to go ro?ad in it--don't be a ?qoealar, and take your bit and shut up" ' The trusts briber, said Mr. Corsa, would tak? tti?' pot? of sample?, dump them out an?l refill them from a hogs head of damp, spoiled sugar, kept there for the purpose. Corsa didn't understand what was going on at first, hut he wasn't left long in the dark. One day when he was coming out of the washroom another employe said to him, "You've got your money, old man; it's la your coat pocket. I got mine, too. See!" The other man drew out a roll of bills, and Corsa put his hand in his pocket and found a sinil lar roll. Corsa understood then. He was beginning to realize what th? brib eT was there for and also what unoth ?I man at the Williamsburg docks was doing. A short time after this the system of sampling was abolished and a plan of stabbing was installed, after a sack of sugar had been stabbed the sampler would drop the sampl?' into a locked bucket, for which tho only key? were In the possession of the ap? praiser. By that time Corsa was being used pretty regularly as a sampler. Occasionally the trust man bappeaed to be n??ftr him. Briber Close at Hand. "Now, don't give us the worst of It. Knock her down a point or two and we'll see you fixed all right," he would say to Corsa. Here again the niianin?; wasn't entirely ? lear to Corsa. Then he woke up to the fact that th?re was a difference in the quality of sugar contained In a single sack. Ho learned that the coars?*r grained ami the drier It was the higher would be the test. Also, that near the bottom of the sack there might be bilge water, and that If the sack was stabbed there the test would be low. Sticky sugar might be packed on top, he learnfd. too. and there a stabbing brought the same re? sult. The government regulation pro? vided for a diagonal stabbing. It waa to avoid this what the trust was pay? ing for. In hogshead sugar the mo? lasses would drain to the bottom, and to get a low grade sample at this point was much easier than on a sack. The hits that the samplers r for cautious stsbbing. with the trust's interests in mind, were from $12 to $25. Corsa discover?- 1 "The servie?' we were asked to ran der would save the sugar trust atxint $2000 on ??a? h cargo." said Mr. Corsa. "It was polluting us for about IMS <?n eich cargo, counting what went to the head sampler, as well as the samplers and their assistants." Corsa saw that this was going on all over the docks. He didn't blame the other men. bacaaa? they were as poor as he wan. But it didn't iivm quite right to him. Mr. Corsa took his information to Appraiser Wakeman, who referred It to Secretary Gage. Shortly after this Mr. Wakeman was relieved and Qeorge W. Whltehead waa appointed appraiser. The next day Corsa was discharged. Dowager Duchess III.

WANTS ALL STAFFORD SCHOOLS OPENED Potomac View, Va., Nov. 19, 1909. To The Free Lance: I feel it my duty to say something in reference to school matters. I see through your paper that the principals of our public schools are advertising for tirstciaas teachers with firstclass cer? tificates. Let it be understood in the first place that scholars of this grade can make big money at something els??, hence teachers of this kind are hard to get. Would it not be well to apply for an emergency certificate, so if we can't get a firstclass teacher then get a second class teacher or a third class teacher, someone that will teach the children how to read and write, if nothing else? It is a shame to compel? people to pay school ta< and the school house rot down an?! the children growing up in ignorance. Go?xl people, what are we thinking tbout? The responsibility of all this comes right t?i our door. John F. Farmer. BATTLED FOR LIFE WITH WOUNDED BUCK Hunter Kills Animal After Being Locked in Horns Half Hour. Sarana? Lake. N. Y., Nov. 19. ?
