CATCH COD: NO BAIT
INVENTION OF FISHERMAN MAY
REVOLUTIONIZE INDU8TRV.
Old Salt at Gloucester Has a Device
Called "the Jigger" Which May
Mean a Great 8avlnu to the
New Englanders.
Gloucester, Mass.' Cnpt. Angus
Hlnerf, a weather-beaten flsherniun,
has Invented a new method of captur
ing cod without bait that prtnlscB to
revolutionize the Ashing Industry of
New, England. AH along tho coast,
from tyalfje to Capo Cod, tho baltless
method of, .taking cod has bucomu n
topic of, Interest.,
For nearly, a ucoro cf years tho cost
of salted clams, liquid and eols and
Other coil halt jias been an important
factor In. xeducpg tho profits of Now
England ilshprnien.

fore proceeding to tho fishing grounds.
Tho salted clams havo to bo shipped
froin Maine for this purposa. Often
days aro opont on tho fishing grounds
iu capturitig''tifhld for bait.
Capt. nines, who recently sailed In
to Gloucester- In his vcsboI, tho Annie
M, Parker, with 37G.000 pounds of
cod, a record load, created n sensation
among Hulling concerns by catching
fully hntf this cargo by means of his
latest fanglod dovlco for luring tho
cod from tho depths.
'ijapt, Hlnes, when ho started for
Sablo Island In May, carried 140 bar
rels of salted clams for bait, Hefnro
returning he tlnow CO barrels ovor-boaj-d
and gavb away 20 barrels to
other fishermen,
.This new dovlco foi taking fish has
been named "tho jigger." It consists
pf a molded fish-shaped plcco of
bhlny lend, about eight inches long,
from tho head of which projects a
pair of big hooks.
When Capt. Hlnoa nrrlved on tho
fishing grpunds at Sablo Island last
May ho discovered that tho schools
of fish vcro slow to tako tho clam
baft. Instead, the cod pcomed to bo
pursuing tho herring which lnfoBtcd
the waters,
Confronted with this problem, tho
captain set to work to solvo it. It wns
impossible to obtain honing enough
for bait, aud the thought struck him
that a dovlco mndo to docelvo tho cod
would solvo his troubles.
With a pleco of lead tho captain
fashioned a llttlo fish oyer the upper
ends of two largo cod hooks and
threw iho dovlco ovorboard at tho end
of u lino as an experiment.
A cod snapped at tho Jlggor and
was hauled aboaul tho dory, Anothor
aud another woro caught by the samo
method In rapid succession. Immedi
ately tlio crew of 21 on Capt. Hlnos'
vossel sot to work modeling Jiggers.
In another day tho men woro busy
hauling aboard scores of cod caught
by tho now device.

SERVANTSOFWEALTHY
8HARP INQUIRY MADE INTO
THEIR ANTECEDENTS.
Jobs Not to Be Had for the Asking
Doubt as to Authenticity of
Story Regarding Upton
Sinclair.
Now York. Until moro ovidenco is
producod na to its truth It Ib better to
doubt the story that Upton Sinclair se
cured employment as a houso servant
In Mrs. Vanderbllt's residence, "Tho
Ureakers," at Newport.
Mr. Sinclair would undergo troublo
nnd hardship, no doubt, to obtain
first-hand material for another novel
in which to exploit hin particular
brand of socialism, hut it Is uullkoly
thnt he would musqucradc an a menial
if ho could, und much moro unlikely
that ho could If ho would.
Servants for nearly all largo domes
tic establishments aro hired by paid
housekeepers who deal generally with
employment offices which nro known
to make sharp inquiry Into tho ante
cedents of the servants they recom
mend. This precaution is not directed
against ambitious authors eager to
know whnt life Is below stairs In the
homes of the very wealthy, but to pro
tect their patrons against tho ron
otant and skillful efforts of profession
aT thieves to secino servants' places In
such homes.
Tho measures taken against this do
not always succeed. English profo3
slonnl thloves buy or steal the creden
tials of gonulno houso servants nnd
come to this countiy to work out
schemes with them. They sometimes
succeed.
The big Jowolry robbory from the
residence of the Townsend-llurdcns
was an "inside" Job as tho pollco call
It, arranged by a professional London
thlof who had secured eniployniont In
tho houso on stolen lottorB of recom
mendation, nut usually tho experi
enced employment agents sift out tho
pretenders and they nro helped by
equally oxpoilenccd housokeopors.
The foregoing suggests another
phnso of domestic employment in
which young men as gently biod as
Mr. Sinclair cam profit and dinner In
vltatlona. Many a hoBtcss has 011 her
domestic staff a young man of fashion
who perfoims practically tho duties of
a butler, nut thero nro few butlora
In tills country who aio compotont to
do tho work, so these noedy young
men of good social standing step in
and do It.
All very largo Biippors served In
pilvato hoiiBca, and very mnny of tho
largo dinners, nro provided by ono or
tho other of two prominent caterers.
Tho catoror furnishes food, drink, mu
sic, ilowois, clgniB, c(gai ottos and
service. Tho young man atuuda be
tween tho hostess and tho cntororj he
dccldca a scoro of details which a
butler would decide If tho auppor woro
a homo supplied affair; ho Inspects
tho decorations, dctci mines tho brund
of cluimpngue (and gels 11 commission
from tho wlno agent), ho oven helps
tho cateier's steward In managing tho
actual service, sees that It la prompt,
smuit'and that not too much wlno la

If It Is u cotillion supper ho selects

Heir to Valuable Estate Is Victorious

Lnconla, N. II. After 20 years of
successful search and litigation, E. F).
Cram has returned from CrosHvllle,
Tonn., nnd resumed work In a fnctory
of tho Ciano Manufacturing company.
The litigation wns over valuable Ton
ncsseo property. Fiom Mr. Cram It Is
learned that nenrly 20 years ago,
while looking ovor papers belonging
to the late Robert Cram, his great
undo, a biokor In Now York city, ho
found 8omo documents relating to
Innd in Tennossco, which had not been
taken into account at tho time of tho
settlement of his unclo's estate.
Mr. Cram learned that his uncle had
pin chased of a physician, Dr. Evans,
who owned 27,000 ncies of land In
Tennessee, two trncts of 5,000 acres
each, for which ho had paid tho sum
of $5,000. Ho later aold one of these
tractB. Further Investigation showed
that tho Evans heirs, having no knowl
edge of the original sale to Cram, sold
tho entlio Evans estate. This fact haa
given rise to no end of litigation nnd
trouble.
Tho heirs, CC In number, Brattered
through all parts of the United Stntcs,
and Alaska, woro hunted up, ono by
one, by Ciam, but without excoptlou
they refused to tako an nctlvo part in
the Investigation of the claim, and the

shoulders of tho New Hampshire man.
Ho believed he had n good title and

to bo very valuable.
Some 20 or 111010 families of the
"poor whlto" class occupy poitlons of

Oregon Journal Welcomes It at Her
aiding the Day of Small Farms
and Crowding Out the
"Wheat Kings."
Thero will hardly be any widespread
Borrow over the new ruling of the
Interior department, which compoln
the farmers who lease Indian lands
to dwell on them, snya the Portland
Orcgonlnn. It will havo the effect of
reducing the acreage held by wheat
kings nnd of Increasing the number
of small furmeis, an advantage too
obvious to rcqulro explanation. As
stated In a Pendleton dispatch In the
Oregonlnn, "tho Importance of this
ruling may bo realized when It Is un
derstood that thero are men living In
the city of Pendleton who are farm
ing as high as 11,000 acres, upon which
there Is not a slnglo house. It wilt
mean thu cutting up of the big hold
ings Into smaller holdings and the in
vasion of the reservation by a moro
humblo class of growers and tho
crowding out of tho big wheat kings."
Tho present acaBon has offered an
excellent Illustration of the advant
ages of farming on n small scale as
compared with what Is generally
known as "bonanza farming." Prac
tically nil of the damage Buffered by
tho wet weather In the Interior wheat
fields was on tho big farms, where the
scaiclty of labor mado It Impossible
properly to handle the crop when It
wns ready. In nearly every case the
miiull wheat grower who was farming
about 100 acres and could work It
without much help, succeeded In es
caping Injury. It will be a grat many
oara before dlcrallled farming will
supplant wheat growing in many lo
ralltlcs In Oregon. Washington and
Idaho, hut a limitation on the size of
tho wheat fields will be of great bene
fit to the country. In the case of
Umatilla county It will result In a
large Increase In tho population, sothd
thing which has not been noticeable
for a long time. In fact, thero are
eomu townships In' the county whero
the steadily Increasing absorption of
small farms by tho great wheat grow
ers has insulted In decieaso In popu
lation at a time when all other por
tions of tho northwest, outside of the
wheat dlBtilcts, wero showing sub
stantial gains.
In tho Wllllnmette Valley, which 30
years ago waa producing neaily nil of
the wheat grown In Oregon,-diversified
fanning has reached a otage where
not Infrequently ten families are found
on a single quarter section that was
once devoted to wheat growing and
each of the ten farmers la making
more money out of hla amull farm
than the farmer wheat growers made
out of tho entire quarter section when
It waa dooted to wheat growing.
What tho Pacific northwest needs 13
moro pounnncnt residents to tako the
place of that wandering army which
drifts In at harvest time and drifts out
again when linn est Is over. The rul
