PREDICT BIG MUTTON FAMINE Wool Growers Told Scarcity In Next Five Years Will Become Very Acute. Salt Lake City. I'tah.-A mutton amine was predicted here by J. E Poole. editor of the Chicago Livestock World, in an address before the Na tional Wool Growers' assoclation. meeting in annual session. During the lext five years. he said, the scarcity wonld becomte acute. Mr. Poole said that for the last five years the west had been marketing ewe lambs in the same reckless man aer as it sent heifer calves to the, butcher from 1900 to 1910. Good au thorities, he said, estimate that 80 per' cent of the ewe flocks of the west are, aver aged and that a bad winter would scatter their carcasses over the ranges, thus precipitating a mutton scarcity that in any event cannot long be delayed. "One short lamb crop." said Mr Poole. "would put both lamb and mut boa in the same category as lobster and terrapin. Charles A. Butler of Chicago. In an address on the legal relations of sheep shippers and railroads, declared that all the live stock contracts he had ien carried provisions contrary to the federal laws.

London. - The Negus Menelik's death at last having been officially es tablished, after so many false reports. many anecdotes about this picturesque character are appearing. One of them is in the Times, and is reminiscent of King Solomon, Menelik's reputed an cestor. In Abyssinia the Mosaic law of an eye for an eye holds good in default of blood-money. Two men were gath ering plums, one in the tree shaking the branches and the other below col lecting the fruit. A branch broke, and the climber fell on the gatherer and broke his neck, himself escaping with injurlec from which he eventually recovered. The family of the dead man sued the survivor for the blood money, some $120. He had no money and refused to pay. whereupon the plaintiffs demanded his life. The case worked its way up to the supreme tribunal of Menelik himself, by which time bitter feeling had been engendered, and the claimants now re fi used to accept blood-money, even if offered, and demanded their full right. This action was taken after investi 2aition of the circumstances that two me;pn. believed to be yeggmen, were tund emerging from a passageway leading directly under the vaults, a hose steel floors are exposed under neath. In the founda:i,n of the old city hall at the exact spot where the vaults are situated, there are holes drilled for dynamite. These were put there during the days of the 1906 fire, when it was planned to dynamite the ruins. TELLS 0f FUTURE ".LIGION it Wo!il e ,-3- d on Sc Lice. De c:ares C:.r:,lie Flammaarcn.

Yale Students Stop Drinking. New Hlaven.- Liny Yale students have signed a pled-;e to refrain from drinking, gambling and to shun im moral theatrical performances. "Very well," sail Menelik. "You have the right to claim this man's life; but the law also says that the murderer shall be killed in the same manner as his victim. Therefore, let one of you climb that tree"-pointing to a huge sycamore fig-"and fall from its branches on the culprit." None of the plaintiffs would take the risk, and the innocent homicide es caped. True greatness of spirit was shown by the Negus when, many years ago. a favortlb and trusted Dejazmatch re volted. He was a chief of influence and power, whose suppression in volved cor siderable trouble and anxi ety, but be was eventually captured and brount in chains before the Ne gus. Merr.lik asked him why he had rebelled, .bnd he replied: "To make myself Ntgus." "Ah!" said Menelik. "do you think it is such an easy or pleasant thing to be king of kings?
