WILLING TO HAVE
"ARMIES" UNITED
Bramwell Booth, However, Does Not
Think Brother, Rival,
Desires It.
Xew York, Nov. 2. Drum well Booth,
head of the Salvation Army, said yester
day he was willing to amalgamate with
he Volunteers of America, but he ilidnot
think his brother, Ballington Booth,
commander of the rival organization, de
sired it. liallingfon Booth was out of
the city yesterday and his secretary said
lie knew of no arrangement for a meet
ing of the brothers, who have not seen
each other since they were estranged 17
years ago.
"I have written to my brother," said
Uramwell Ifooth, "anil 1 hope to meet

hud some differences in the past and

to place my brother in a position as sav

do not think Ballington desires an amal
gamation. I am certainly willing to
umalgamate with anybody."
The iSnlvatioii Army chief did not
tl ink the existence of two organizations
sin h as his ow n and the Volunteers of
America, doing practically the same
kind of work, was a dissipation of pow

its messages pressed upon the people

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.

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.
Pennsylvania Pardon Board Commutes
Sentence of Murderess
Philadelphia, Nov. 21. Pennsylvania
yesterday stood cleared of its Bessie
Wakefield ease. The board of pardons,
sitting at llarrisburg. commuted to life
imprisonment the sentence of death im
posed on Mrs. Freda Hartmann Trost
for poisoning her second husband.
Mrs. Trost, was sentenced to be hanged
following her conviction here on Dee. It,
1912.
The board of pardons last year grant
ed a similar commutation in the case of
Mrs. Catherine Danz.
40-POUND TURKEY FOR WILSON.
Members of Cabinet Will bo Presented
25-Pound Birds.
Washington, Nov. 21. President Wil
son, Secretary Joseph Tumulty and the
members of the president's cabinet, with
the exception of Secretary McAdoo, who
is a widower, will be presented by South
Trimble, clerk of the House of Repre
sentatives, with a pure bred pedigreed
bronze turkey raised on Kentucky blue
grass, for Thanksgiving. The president's
turkey, it was announced yesterday, will
be a yearling gobbler weighing about 40
pounds. The others will weigh about 23
pounds.

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."
W'e say positively there is nothing
like Yinol to purify and enrich the blood
and build up weak, run-down people. If
it should fail in your case., we will re

KET P0ULTR i.
By E. J. LAMBERT,
Foultry Instructor, K. I. 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

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

ures, but injures their keeping qualities

Thus far, farmers have met monthly

establishing credit with local banks,
guarding jealously their reputations for

One evening after she had been served
with dessert, this lady, who was always
complaining, asked the waiter why the '

"If you don't like it, ma'am, I'll bring
you something else," suggested the po

"O, it's very nice," responded the lady.
"What I object to is that it should be
called ice cream pudding. It's wrongly
named. There should be ice cream
served with it."
"Yes, ma'am," replied the waiter, "but
