A freak potato grown on a small gar

Drug store. Tfte owner claims distinc

shape Hnd on account of the seven nod

main potato, a tuber of normal size, if
not somewhat larger than the average
potato. The little knobs are so distrib

lend to it the appearance of an animal.

When the city fathers come together
this evening for the regular fortnightly
meeting of the council, they will receive
a report from the aldermanic committee

the sanitary conditions along the river
bed in the granite belt. Recently the
committee and the mayor and the city
health officer made a tour of inspection

mains to be done in the way of abating
certain nuisances. It is intimated that

number of drastic recommendations and
that failure to comply with these recom
mendations will be followed by summary
action. A committee from the Central

ory of the councilors a few wkg ago,

McKarland writes of Dr. L. II. Bailey,
former director of the College of Agri
culture st ( ornell :
It i as a mill that we who hae
printed tor him for many years admire
I'rolcor Bailey. Kurd stunts he puts
up to us. but we hit the pace with a
smile, because of the man Bailey. He
will send "copy" written on any scrap
that comes handy, from the back of a
wedding imitation to a receipted tailor'
bill; he will draw a world-map in detail
on the prsif -sheets : he will tear up
pages of "make-up" to get in place the
lai-t word ot scientific accuracy; but all
the piinfing folk Jiit grin and go at it,

"How Tremendously anOrdinary Man
In the October American Magazine Ida
Sf. Tarbell writes the introduction to
a new series of articles which she is to
licgin in that periodical next month.
The new series is entitled "The Golden
Rule in Business How It Pays in Dol
lars and Cents, Personal Satisfaction and
Human Happiness." In her introduction
.Miss Tarbell makes references to the
new methods of scientific management
which have been applied in the factories
throughout the United States and then
goes on in part as follows:
"The new management employs not
only science but humanity, and by hu
manity I do not mean sympathy but
rather a larger thing, the recognition
that all men, regardless of race, origin
or experience, have powers for greater
things than has been believed. I doubt,
indeed, if there has been any economic
and social gain in the last 50 years
which equals this growing conviction in
industry of the powers of the common
man. One has it forced upon him wher
ever he goes. Take any one of the
great corjtorations of the day, who otli
cers and operates them? Men who once
were laborers, mechanics, clerks! If
they were not, then their fathers were.
In one plant alone of the Illinois Steel
Co., that at Joliet, 111., 178 of the men
in responsible positions came up from
the ranks; and the general superintend
ent Btarted 28 years ago as a 'marker.'
This is noticeably true throughout the
"Its 'big men' have come from tho
ranks. The president of the Frick Coke
& Coal. Co., with 18,000 men under him,
once handled a pick in a mine. I have
had $25,000 and $.500,000 men in mills
and factories point out with pride the
task at wdiich they began at $1.50 or $2
a day. All over the country this is true.
Our biggest silversmiths' was started by
a patient workman who pounded out
his teaspoons and porringera and hiru'
self carried them to Boston to sell. Our
greatest silk manufacture was started
by a farmer who caught the mulberry
tree fever which swept the country in
the 30s and who, failing to raise silk
worms, stuck to his dream and began
importing what he could not grow.
"One could readily fill this magazine,
with such stories. It has been so from
the start. It is so to-day. The man
who is making the biggest profits in any
business in this country, making them
without other privilege from the state
or government than the tariff, which
his competitors all enjoy, 12 years ago
was earning f2.50 a day as a laborer.
