SLAVERY ALONG RIVER AMAZON Madre Dc Dios Price Is $300 for Man and $200 for Woman, It Is Said. The Madre de Dios is a majestic waterway, some 4K) yards wide, at Puerto Alanza. Later on it joins another river to become the Beni. Farther down again it Hows into the Marinonc, and finally more than 1000 miles below Ali anza is merged into the mighty Ama zon. On the banks of tluyAmazon there are large towns boasting of a so-called civ ilization, but in the remote reaches of the ailluents and sub affluents, and in the great forest tracts along these spacious waterways, force and nature reign su preme. Human, animal and plant life battle hard for existence. Jn this v'nst and little known region law and order are not cordial. They are merely the product of self-defense. If any evildoer tie caught, retribution is swift and terrible. And slaves the ab original forest, savages are bought and sold freely. When 1 was in the Madre de Dios the market price of a man was 300, a woman .200 and a child $50, al though for good men used to collecting aaucho (low 'grade wild rubber,) much higher prices prevailed. One- landowner know had just bought 20 families say, 80 persons in all for .l.),0O0. I myself was offered 100 peo ple by their master, who was retiring from business. He appeared quite sur prised when I told him that Kiiglishmen did not deal in human flesh. Nevertheless, it must lie confessed that these slaves are not, as a rule, unhappy. Instead of wandering wild about the woods, they are brought into the rub ber camps, given some clothes and a gun and introduced to alcohol. Then they are sent out into the forest to cut down caucho trees and collect the rubber that Hows down from the trunks. It is true that, in some places, flogging and other ill-treatments follow when the quantity of rubber picked is small. Philadelphia Public Ledger. An Interesting Man.

LEWIS WOULD BENEFIT THEM To Improve the Everglades, Says Wil- liam H. Heine. Jacksonville, Fla., Nov. 21. William II. Heine of Fort Lauderale, Fla., in an address last night before the sixth an nual convention of the Atlantic Deeper Waterways association, declared that the improvement of the. Florida Ever glades would increase freight tonnage of that section approximately 400,000 train loads of 30 cars each, yearly. Florida, he said, already had complet ed four great canals at a cost of 000,000 and was preparing to construct others. All of these canals are destined to be used for transportation, Mr. Heine said, and several of them would con nect with the proposed inter-coastal wa terway that the association was urg ing. Mr. Heine's address featured the night session of the convention and completed a day rich in suggestions for the ad vancement of the work of the associa tion. There were many addresses on a variety of subjects, chief among them ix'ing the relation of water transporta tion to the high cost, of living. This subject was discussed by Kugene W. Fry of Philadelphia, treasurer of the Southern .Transportation Co. Mr. Fry pointed out bow agricultural prod ucts and other necessities could be trans ported from the farms to the markets in the cities much cheaper than by rail. This, he said, would prove to lie one of the main items of freight for the pro posed inter-coastal waterway. Other suggestions came from Senator Duncan U. Fletcher of Florida, presi dent of the Mississippi to Atlantic Wa terway association. He took for his topic the advancement of that project in connection with the Atlantic inter coastal route. Representative J. diaries T.inthicum of Maryland talked on the "Canal Ap proaches to Baltimore" witli particular reference to the inter-coastal waterway, William f. Bennett of New York, for mer member of Congress, discussed "Co ordination of Terminals by Kail ami Water." A. H. Baldwin of Washington, chief of the bureau of foreign and do mestic commerce, talked on "Waterways and Foreign Trndc Promotion." Mr. Heine began his address by de claring that a wrong impression regard ing the Kverglades existed in the minds of most people. "It is asserted," said Mr, Heine, "that the Everglades will produce annually, 00 tons of sugar per acre, and there are 3,000,000 acres. Three million times 00 tons, or 180.000,000 ..on represent the tonnage that the Everglades will fur nish this newly proposed transportation scheme in farm products alone." MRS. TR0ST WILL NOT HANG.

DOUBLE PROFITS FOR THIS YEAR Showing of Former Stand ard Oil Subsid iaries TOTAL OF 111 PER CT. IN DIVIDENDS Four Concerns Yet to Be ' Heard From Rocke feller Surprised New York, Not, 21. The Sun says: The recent extra cash dividends declared by former Ktandald Oil subsidiaries have stirred renewed interest in the activity of oil stocks in the face of inactivity in other securities. Dividends thus far this year show that the former Standard Oil companies have declared a total of 111 per cent on the basis of the 10iJ,000,00 authorized capita of the parent com pany, against ,V2 per cent -declared in 1012. The Standard Oil company, of New Jersey, the parent company, paid 40 per cent yearly dividends fn' the lust six years previous to utssoiuiii. Dividends disbursed up to the present this vear aggregate more than $11,000,- 000. Several of the companies are yet to be heard from on their regular quar terly dividend declarations. I'p to the end of September' eight of tlie companies distributed stock divi dends with an aggregate par value of $81,1100,000, while subscription rights were extended to the stockholders of one company having a market value of $2.r00,0OO, The 40 per cent extra cash dividend melon distributed by the Standard Oil company of New Jersey last March, amounting to nearly $40,000,000, was one of the biggest extra dividend ever de clared. Among the highest dividend rates paid during the year Were 00 Jier cent by the Standard Oil of New Jersey, 80 per cent by the Washington Oil company. whose capital, however, is only $100,000; .17 per cent by the Ohio Oil company, 40 per cent each by the Solar Refining com pany, the Eureka Pipe Line and the Buckeye Pipe Line, .'12 jr cent each by the Standard Oil of Indiana, the South ern Pipe Line, the Indiana Tipe Line, and 31 'j per cent 'by the Standard of Kansas. Only four of the 34 segregated companies liave failed thus far to de clare dividends the Atlantic Refining, Colonial Oil, Cnion Tank Line and the Pierre Oil corporation. NEEDS MILEAGE FOR CREDITORS. Representative from Kentucky Made a Plea to Adjourn Congress. Washington, Nov. 21. With the frank declaration thai he "needed'' his mileage. Representative Thomas of Kentucky yesterday introduced a resolution de manding that Congress adjourn on No vember 22." "My creditors want rue to have my mileage," Thomas declared. "Nine tenths of the members feel the same as 1 do. Congress should have adjourned three months ago. I could live very' comfortably on T2,0)0 a year. 1 could live on $7,500 a year. But 1 Bin from a Republican district where it takes real money to get the people to vote right." SKIN ERUPTIONS Evidence of Impure Blood and a Run-Down Condition When the blood becomes thin, poor, devitalized nature cries out through such extenyi! evidence for help., ami the saf est, surest and most helpful remedy we know is Vinol This is because it is a combination of the two most world-famed tonics the medicinal curative elements of cod. liver oil (without the oil and tonic iron for the blood. Vinol strengthens the diges tive organs, creates a hearty appetite, purifies and enriches the blood, creates strength. Mrs. Helen Wingate, St. Louis, Mo., says: "I was in very poor health, nerv ous and run-down, and nothing in the way of medicine did me any good until my druggist recommended Yinol. It built up; my health, restored strength, and I fetd that 1 owe my life to Vinol. I cannot praise it too highly."

State College. The best poultry markets call for chickens with yellow shanks and flesh, full, round breasta and plump, meaty lxwlies. The market qualities of any flock may be improved from year to year hy careful selection of the breeding birds. The average chicken is usually at its best when around six months of age, having reached normal growth. Their market condition is often improved by caging birds two weeks before killing and feeding fattening rations composed of eornmeal moistened with milk. No matter whether they are especially fat tened or not, care must be taken as to the quality of their food. Tainted jneat, fish or pungent flavored vegetables,' such as onions or garlic, injure the quality of murket poultry. J lie last meal should be fed twelve or twenty-four hours before killing. The crop is then devoid of food and intes tines nearly empty. The best markets demand dry, picked poultry, and scalded stock is usually sold at low. prices, be cause it is disfigured and the keeping qualities injured. ' The best method of killing is to suspend the bird by a stout cord, slipnoosed around the shanks, and hanging the body head down at a con venient angle for picking.' ltn a bil let of hard wood give the bird a quick rap on the head so us to stun it, open the mouth, inserting a sharp knife well up into the roof, tar enough back to pierce the brain. Jura the Wade Halt over, cutting across the top of the mouth just back of the skull, so as to cause pro- tuse bleeding. I hen grasp the wings with one hand and with the other begin to pick feathers from the breast and parts of the body where the skin is ten der and easily torn. As soon as the bird ceases struggling both hands will be free to remove feathers. Pick clean with the exception of head and the short feathers on last joint of wing tips. When the weather is warm as soon as birds are picked clean they should be immersed in cold or iced water until all animal heat is removed before they are packed for shipment. During winter, if they are hung in a cool room for two hours after the operation tliey will then be in shape for market. Pickers of ducks, geese and turkeys usually prefer to sit by the side of a box while at work in order to save as many as possible of the soft feathers of water fowls and the sti.T feathers of turkeys, both of which bring good prices. Care less picking of poultry not only disfig ures, but injures their keeping qualities and sale in any market. THE ASHLAND DAIRY PLAN II. By ROY. H. BEEBE. Secretary Ashland Co-operative Dairy Co. What of the success of the Ashland lairy planf. A question asked of the Commercial club of Ashland. Wis., re garding its co-operative cow-buying and rural credit experiment. A revolving lund of If 10,000 was placed in the bands of two trustees by two local national banks, thus keeping local mon ey at home, formerly sent to larger money centers. Five carloads of high grade and registered Guernsey and Hol- stein foundation stock were brought to Ashland within six months.

In pooling the purchase of some fifty pi oneer farmers the pro rata expense of making the purchase (including freight and all incidental expenses) was $7.75 on the first lot and 14.00 on the last lot for each animal, Thus far, farmers have met monthly payments and interest obligations faith fully. It is strictly a business proposi tion, and new settlers realize they are establishing credit with local banks, guarding jealously their reputations for making prompt payments, so one serious objection Njirged against the plan has proved unfounded. The interest rate charged farmers is 7 per cent., and mon ey loaned farmers is borrowed from na tional banks by trustees at 6 per cent.. the difference of 1 per cent, in the inter est rate being sufficient to provide for incidental expenses. Hy loaning nation al bank funds through two trustees, the necessity is avoided of short-time loans to farmers. . The trustees renew their paper every three months, while farm ers' notes run for three years. As farm ers are reducing their obligations month ly, the money is returned to the trus tees' revolving fund and made available for purchase of more cows as farmers in crease acreage of cleared land, and can provide feed for more stock. The moral effect of the scheme has been most encouraging and dairying is now the focus of the efforts of business men and farmers. Three new creameries have begun operations, prices of butter fat are two cents above the Chicago Coal and Gas RANGES fir MAGEE OVEN FLUES Insure Perfect Baking SIMPLE DAMPER SYSTEM No Confusion market, and cream checks are in evi dence in bank clearings. Farmers around Ashland realize they are on trial, and business men of Ashland, who have guar anteed banks against loss, take helpful interest in the success of their farmer friends. The old spirit of suspicion and misunderstanding has disappeared, which formerly existed between rural and city residents, and banks are extending credit accommodations to farmers who a yesr ago were unknown.
