The practice of ' permitting long l'r lines of visitors to go through the institutions, much to the annoyance and distress of many of the unfortunates, is a shame that it is wise to abol'sh.

TH.IRIC" thb iroxi TAX. It is told that some are inclined to ; be a little alarmed about the Income tax situation. They are afraid they will not understand how to comply I with the regulations of the statute. In which event they will be liable to fic and mortification. .There la no reason for anybody to ' get disturbed if he intends to cotup! with tbe law. If he la a single man he Inows if his Income exceeds $3,000; if he is married he and his wife to gether should be abla to determine tf ' ht has an Income In excess of $3,000. "But there Is the matter of exemp- tions and subtractions that are to be! made," some one exclaims. And it is - said these are not easily understood at once. This should give no alarm. If there is a case that one can't be sure about all he will need to do is to call in the assistance of the revenue department. It will be glad to lend any help needed to reach an under1 standing of a case. There is always the fellow who has the income and doesn't want to pay any tax. It will be all right if he will take on a little alarm. WHERE THE KE7.K TAME) IX. President Elliott, the new head of the New Haven & Hartford road, urges that railways be permitted to boost rates. He holds that that is the only solution. It is undoubtedly the only solution if the public is to devote the space of tw o or three generations to paying for the vast fictitious stock and bond issues marketed by wreck ers who pocketed the money. The only fair solution in the case of some systems must be receivership and a squeezing out of the water. The New York, New Haven & Hart ford is by geographical location prob ably the most profitable railway prop erty in the world, and yet with all the enormous business it did, the loot by the millionaires had been so great that the active managers could not afford to provide the ordinary safety devices.

In sections subject at certain sea sons, to freezing temperatures, cold winds and violent storms we attempt to provide, by means of buildings, a more equable and comfortable climate and expect remuneration for this extra outlay of capital to be returned in the form of numerous eggs and plump chickens when prices are satisfactory. By wind-breaks and other means we seek to still further modify the cli matic excesses and protect the fowls against the extremes and inclemencies of bad weather. In locating the poultry plant this idea is kept in mind and in determining tbe situation of the build ings on the plant it must still be kept in view. Hen Houses The reason for build ing houses which are thoroughly un der control and continuously comfort able, is that while a poor building might afford shelter sufficient to per mit the fowls to exist through the cold winter, that is but a small part of the poultry business. If poorly sheltered the poultry must consume much food to use In keeping their bodies war a TAVENNER HAS (Bushnell Democrat.)

They waste every thing in every possible way. They even waste time, notwithstanding their international reputation as dollar chasers and constant hustlers. An American business man will charter a special train to get him somewhere an hour earlier than regular schedule, and then idle away more than half a day before keeping his appointment. Amer icans waste their energies by tearing about like mad over affairs of little or no consequence. They waste time getting money, and then waste the money in all sorts of ridiculous ex travagances, for the most part in gro tesque display. But it is waste of food that is most striking, in comparison with the fru gal habits of our continental cousins. John T. Russell, president of the Mas ter Butchers' association in Chicago, told his associates the other day that the "trouble with the American, if he is a poor laborer, is that he demands from the inside. Very much more food is required to maintain life and body temperature under uncomfortable con ditions than in suitable shelter. In the latter case the surplus nutriment is available for making flesh, fat and eggs. Warmth and comfort also favor the tendency to breeding which among fowls signifies increased egg produc tion. By hygienic housing we aim to gain warmth and comfort while re taining the pure air and cleanliness of roosting in trees. Illinois Farmers' In stitute Bulletin. CORN DAY IN ILLINOIS WILL BREAK THE RECORD Springfield, 111.. Oct. 2. "Corn day" in tie public schools of Illinois will i b celebrated more extensively this 'fall than ever before, in the opinion of Francis G. Blair, state superinten ded of public instruction, who is pre paring an illustxated circular to be sent to every school superintendent and principal in the state. This wi'.l offer suggestions for the observation of the day, give a sim ple program for school exercise and contain information on selecting and, testing seed corn, planting and culti vation and on getting rid of pests that damage tbe crop. Mr. Blair reports that interest in "corn day" is greater than ever. His circular Is beine nreDared bv W A. - Nolan of the agrlcul"ural extension department of the agricultural college of the University of Illinois, an au thority on corn. The first Friday in November is officially designated as "corn day," bu several counties divide the even so as to have a corn show in some "The Young Lady I The young lad across the way says she saw in the paper that the only trouble with the Kansas corn crop was that there were so many short ears but ehe supposed people that liked It especially could take two. MADE GOOD especially well known by the rank and file of the party or the people who elected him. but he has made good in this, his first session, has won the confidence of those who stood by him, and is winning praise everywhere for the course he has taken during the past year. He has been an important part of the congress and has received more recognition than is usually ac corded a first term man. The district will look kindly upon his future aspirations whatever they may be. as his own. And wastefulness in the butcher shop and in the home tends to decrease the supply of meat and boost prices. The truth of thi3 statement Is more than apparent. It is shown by the experience of practically every j American family. Americans not only "live high," as the saying goes, but they live almost riotously. The aver age man who sits down at a hotel table will order twice as much as he can eat He nibbles at this and that and in the end spoils faod enough for a family. The American cook sends enough good food to the garbage can every day to sustain a family as large as the one she cooks for. It is reported that a fund of $500, 000 has been raised by the big pack ers to teach American women how to save in their kitchens. This is a move ment intended to prevent waste and promote economy. American business men insist upon the most economical systems of conducting their opera tions, and then go to their homes where waste Is the rule in every de partment. Domestic science is now being taught in most of our large pub lic schools and in time this instruc tion may result in material benefit. But until the American housekeeper puts brains into her housework and studies the art of saving, the high cost of living problem will not be solved. part of the county every Friday In the month. While the boys are competing for prizes and making displays of their corn the girls will show samples of their sewing and o'her handiwork. Special efforts will be made to inter est the girls in poultry, fruit and flowers. NO NAME FOR A POET. Miller Was Open to Conviction and Shed the Heavy Eurden. "Clncinnatus Heine" was the name that the parents of Jonquln Miller be stowed on him at his christening. How the poet came to adopt the name "Joaquin." under which he Is univer sally known, was told by Mr. Charles Phillips, editor of the San Francisco Monitor. Miss Inn Cooibrith. of whom he speaks, is the California poetess who has been called tbe "Sappho of the west" In 1S70. when he came down from Oregon and published his first little book of poems, entitled "Joaquin et al ." he told Miss Coolbrith of his de termination to go to London and win fame. "Flow in the world," she asked blm. "do you expect to climb Parnassus with such n name as you have? Mil ler Is bad enough, but Cincinnatus Heine Is impossible:" "But what can 1 do?" Miller asked. "It's my nnme. Isn't it?" "Why don't you take some name that will identify you with Califor nia?" Miss Coolbrith rejoined. "Take the name of your first booi; call your self Joaquin." "By George. I'll do it.- said Miller. And from that day he signed himself "Joaquia Miller." Across the Way HENRf HOWIAND HE NBfEl TOLD HIS LOVE He never told his love; she met him at the dcor And told him that he ne'er had looked ao well before; She said she was so glad he had been pleased to call. And, talking, took his hat and hung It in the hall. She'd thought of him all day, she hast ened to declare: She led him to a nook and sat beside hlra there; She deftly smoothed his tie and tucked one corner la. And with her little hand she softly touched his chin. She told him she was sure he'd some day make his mark: The nook In which they sat was all their own. and dark: He found her in his arms and vowing; to be true: He never told his love she made it need less to. What He Wanted. - "Now," said the celebrated design er, who had been called in by the new billionaire to talk over plans for a $500,000 yacht." we have come to an understanding concerning the size of the craft, but what about the bul warks and hatchways?"

Just you see about a place fer a good big Ice box and don't pay no 'tention to incubaters or anything of the kind. No chicken on this boat! I want you to understand b' gosh that I don't eat nothln' cheaper'n quail with feathers on now days!" SURE ON ONE POINT. "Doctor," she asked, "do you really believe there is a bell where peo ple are roasted forever?"

"Ah," the beautiful girl cried, as she took the roll of manuscript that the hard-looking old fellow with the glass es had handed back. "I don't believe you have any poetry in your soul!" "No," he replied, looking at the waste basket. "I suppose I 'haven't; but If you need any in your business yon can find a lot of it in there." Aa Sure as Fate.

Liverpool aler The Daily Story HER PROPOSAL BY F. A. MITCHEL. Ccpy righted. by Asaoclatel literary Uureaii. The coast of Maine Is dotted with ! villages, snugly located In the little coves which- dent the islands, formlnf a continuous archipelago iroro Port land to the bay of Fundy. The men in tbese villages fish all the year round, except for a short season in midsum mer, when they use tbe motorboats for taking out sailing parties on various excursions, for which they receive good pay. In one of tbese villages lived two fishermen whose ownership and man agement of a boat gave them the title of captain. They were Captain Steve Williams and Captain Enoch Brown. Williams was older than Brown, but they were stanch friends. Both of them knew so well the rocks and shoals of the coast in which they were used to tish that they could sail arourd them or between them In tbe darkest night. They set their nets Just before dark ness fell upon the ocean and took them in soon after dawn. It wss a hard life, this being exposed to the winds and waves when others were asleep and sleeping while others were awake, but so long as they were young they did not mind it that is. when the weather was fair. When it was stormy they did not go out to fish, but mnny a night a change would come, snd. being out. they were obliged to endure tbe exposure till they could make the cove from which they had started. . Captain Steve Williams was mar ried, and many a time when storms arose while he was out in his boat his wife would lie siwake dreading with every shriek of the wind that it might be blowing her husband on some sunk en rock. She would clasp her little daughter. Edith, tightly to her breast and mutter a prayer for the man ply ins his perilous vocation. Captain Brown had no wife to pray for him. He bad passed the heyday of youth and had not married, though he could have won almost any of the girls of the village. He was a well built man with a clear steel gray eye an eye that bespoke courage and hon esty. But the winds and tbe spray had begun to plow furrows In his cheeks, and a few gray hairs were beginning to appear in his sandy hair. When Edith Williams was a littlo child she was sensible of there being ii great trouble in the family. A man came to the house and took her father away with him. her mother clinging to her husband, weeping. Edith did not see her father for some time; then he came home, and the trouble seemed to be over. It occurred when she was at an age in which chlldreu forget, but she never forgot the scene of her fa ther's being taken away. And there was another scene she remembered, her father holding one of Captain Brown's hands while her mother held the other, and they were talking to him wltb great earnestness. But both these scenes, though not forgotten, grew dim in her memory as she grew away from them. Perhaps they were dwarfed by others that were present with her. Her father, who was never the same man after the misfortune that hud come to him. be gan to dread going out at night on the black ocean to gain a livelihood for those dependent upon him. And his wife dreaded to have him go as much as he dreaded going. Edith wished that the fish would go into tbe nets during tbe day ns well as during tbe night. She wished that her father could devote himself to some other calling. And yet when now and then he would make a great haul and dispose of it for a large sum it would not seem so dreadful after all at least be would not so consider it himself. And so the bottle for life with the winds and the waves went on. The two captains weathered every tempest, every fog. In which they were caught At last a little germ so small that It could be seen only with a microscope ' got into Captain Williams' system and effected what the angry breakers roll ing over some half hidden rock were powerless to do. Tbe fisherman died quietly in his bed. lie had wrung from the sea enough to pny for the home in which he lived, besides a fund for an in.come by which, living economically, his wife and daughter might keep the wolf from the door. But his wife conld not live without him. There was now nothing to worry her, but when the wind howl ed nt night, from force of habit, she would waken and think of the little boat out on tbe dark, heaving ocean, the solitary man in it feeling his way like a blind person. While she was sinking away, at tbe slightest sound she would start, inquiring if It were not the melancholy foghorn or a gun from a sinking ship, snd nt the last she was sure she heard the thin clang of a distant bell buoy. Edith was now alone. There were friends and acquaintance u plenty, but they were like persons In another boat, liable to drift away at any mo ment. One. and only one. seemed left of those she had been accustomed to regard a part of tbe household. Cap tain Brown. A few dsvs after the death of her mother Edith was sitting In the living room of ber home. She bad taken op aome sewing more for occupation than anything else, and in her loneliness tears were dropping on ber work. Hearing a sound.' she looked np and saw Captain Brown. He had entered as he bad been nsed to enter, without knocking. She smiled at him faintly through ber tears. He wss ail that was left of the three who bad compos ed ber little world. He sat down be fore ber and looked at ber pityingly with bis gray eyes. "Edith." be said. "I've come to say something to you. Toar father and mother being gone, you have no one to rely on." "Tes: I have yon. Father often told that it be ware taken away from m-1 con id count on yon tor anytning.- The fisherman winced. He had some thing oa his mind, something lie bad dreamed without hope of Its realiza tion. He had long wished for Edith's love, the love of a woman, not a child, for a man. Now that she was !ft alone there seemed a possibility that he might induce her to look upon him ns a suitor. But he had been twenty years old when she was born, and she had. been accustomed to think of hlra ss something akin to a father. Her reception of the opening of the pro posal he Intended discouraged him, "But what Is it you hare to say to me?" she added, seeing that he was drawing back within himself. Her ques tion was accompanied by n reassuring smile. It brought him courage. "I don't see how yon cr.n live hers alone." he said, "and you have no rela tive to come and live with you. I was your father's friend. He was like a brother to me, and I've missed hlra since he left us pretty nigh as much as you have." She interrupted hlra. Whether it was to stave off what she saw was coming or from n sincere desire to know tbe truth he could not be sure. "Tell me." she said, "what was the trouble that came to the family when I was a little girl, and what was your connection with it." "Your father told me that if I felt it would be safe to intrust you with the secret after you bad become a woman and be had gone I had his permission to do so." "Intrust me! Did father douht that I might safely be intrusted with any secret?" "Not as n woman, only as an Irre sponsible child. I will toll you all. I ought to tell you. for there is a reason in it for my not saying what I have intended to say. There was a man. a miserly wretch, who held a mortgage on this house. Tour father was having hard luck with his nets about thut time and couldn't pay the interest The old skinflint wrote him that he was going to foreclose the mortgage. Yonr father went to see him about the mat ter and there were hish words between the two. The next morning the miser was found murdered." Edith leaned forwnrd to catch every word, n look of dread on her face. "Your father was arrested charged with the murder. Nobody doubted th:it he was guilty, and since a number of criminals had shortly before got off by the Inefficiency of the law a number of men determined in this case to be the law themselves. I got wind of the move and. taking my gun. went to the Jail to help the sheriff protect your father. Nearing it. I saw the men advancing to attack It. Taking posi tion behind a tree. I fired several shots at them." .. The captain paused. "Well?" queried Elit?t. . "I killed one of thero., "Co on." "They supposed my shots came from the Jail. They all went away. You ore the only person now living who knows that there is blood on my hands." She reached for the hand on which there was blood and asked bira to go on. "Not long after this the police ran In a criminal with somo money and other property on him that had belonged tu the murdered mnu. IIo ronfessed to the murder, and your father was re leased." Wi;h a sigh of relief Edith drew away and. resting her head ou the high back of the chair in which she sat covered her face with her bands. Her companion waited for her to re cover from her emotion. ' Preseutly she withdrew bur bands and said: "Go on." "There's nothing more to tell." the captain said. "I wanted to give myself up nnd take the consequences of the killing I had done, but your father and your mother dissuaded me. They said It w-as perfectly legitimate and by it I had saved your father's life, for it turned out that the sheriff was unpre pared to defend blm and was ready to give him up to the men who had brought with them the wherewithal to execute blm. I suppose this is true, but I think I would have feit better all these years if I had confessed." "Never mind that now. What was It you were going to tell me before this digression?" "I can't do it." "Then I will." She threw her arms about his neck and said: "You will need some one to take the p!a"e of those who doubtless did what tbey could to make you feel satisfied that you did right In defend ing an innocent man even though you took a life in doing so. I will be that person." The story was told, though It was tbe woman who told it. And now an other wife lies nt night thinking of a fisherman out on the Mack wnters un ler the dome of heaveu waiting for 'the fishes to come Into his net When the moon glints I he waves she sleeps eclmiy. but when he hears the wind rising or the deep moan of the fog horn she shudders.
