THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. FRIDAY. MAY 13, 1914.
8 TALK OF SENATOR IS EXPENSIVE ONE La Follette Grossly Abuses His Privilege, Barnhart De clares in the House. Washington. D. C. May 15. Senator 1 Follette was charged with "a gross abuse of the printing privilege" in the house yesterday by Representative Barnhart. chairman of the printing committee. Mr. Barnhart referred to the inser tion In the record of a 36S page speech by Mr. Ia Follette, which contained ecore of protests from individuals and organisations against the proposed 5 per cent increase of railroad freight rates. The speech contains 900,000 words and weighs two pounds in print ed form. Mr. Barnhart estimated that the printing of t'.ie I-a Follette speech for the current and permanent record rep resented an outlay of 1 12,468. -f "If each of the 531 members of con gress should abuse the printing privi lege ia the same manner." Mr. Barn hart said, "it would cost more than JS.500.000. exclusive of wrapping and mailing charges a huge sum. Never since I have been in congress have I een such a gross abuse of the print ing privilege by a member of congress. The publication is made up almost en tirely of protests against the freight in crease, and the form in which some of the protests appear leads me to' be lieve they were solicited. The names of the protestants would have been suf ficient." Mr. Barnhart did not mention Sena tor La Follette by name, but his des cription of the record supplement Is sued yesterday placed responsibility upon the Wisconsin senator. Repre sentative Murdock complained that hi! was attacking a member of another body. Mr. Murdock raised the point of order. "I hare called no names," Mr. Barn hart said. "But everybody knows to whom you I refer." Mr. Murdock replied. "Name him," said Mr. Garrett of Tennessee. "I cannot under the rules," Mr. Mtir dook re"pondrd. peskfr Clark ruled that Mr. Barn hart was proceeding in order, and he cor.tinned : "This shows the necessity of the passage of a bill to refcrm our printing rules. Under the bill no member of congress without consent of the joint committee could extend his remarks for more than four pages. m tne record. Undoubtedly he be lieved that a widespread effort, which might almost be called a conspiracy, waa being made to influence improper ly the interstate commerce commis sion in reference to the most Import ant question that has ever been brought before that commission. While 112,000 is a considerable sum, it is a mere bagatelle when brought Into comparison. 11 tJ U L.TR Y CULTURE I ARTICLE XXXIII. Internal Parasites. Worms are the most troublesome in ternal parasites of poultry. The gape worm infests the windpipe. It is dan gerous only to young chickens. Tape worms and roundworms of many varie ties infest all kinds of poultry, being found mostly in the intestines and di gestive organs. When present in small numbers they do little damage to strong, robust birds, and do not of ten multiply dangerously when sani tary conditions are good. When a stock of poultry becomes badly in fested with worms, the number of par asites which may simultaneously at tack a strong bird may be so great that its strength Is of little advantage. In such cases It is advisable to kill off all stock and keep no poultry on the land for several years." Stock from a badly Infested flock, if taken to new land, carries the worms with it. External Parasites. lice are often referred to as ene mies against which the poultry keeper must wage unremitting warfare. This view exaggerates the importance of direct personal efforts to keep these parasites In subjection . There are two general classes of lice those which live upon the birds and those which only feed upon them, remaining at other times in crevices about the roosts and nests. Neither kind does percepti ble damage when present in small numbers or multiplies too rapidly on adult birds when sanitary conditions are good, when the birds are vigorous, and when ample opportunity is given them to "dust" themselves. Some live on dead skin and feather particles. Very few birds are absolutely free I from lice, even when treated regularly wirn insecticides. The presence of lice in small num ber on the bodies of poultry is, by some authorities, considered benefi cial. They rarely become seriously detrimental to any strong stock kept under favorable conditions. Treat ment for them should be necessary only on incubating poultry, on young birds when very small, and on old cnes when confined without opportun ity to free themselves from lice. Con tinued necessity for fighting lice shows aid plainly that some other conditions FUNERAL OF POST IS LED BY WOMEN Five Hundred March at Head of One Thousand Workmen at Battle Creek, Mich.

Head ed by 500 women employes, who had Insisted on being given the right to march through muddy streets with the thousand workmen of the Post urn Ce real company, an unusual funeral cor tege escorted the remains of Charles W. Post, manufacturer of cereal foods, to the cemetery yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Post had ruled that, to avoid display, none but the family and the close business associates of Mr. T"06t should Join In the funeral procession. When the employes, men and women, declared Mr. Post always called them his "family they were allowed to march. While scores of prominent American manufacturers, from all over the United States, were present, it was the attitude of the laboring people that created the most wonderful Im pression. The Postum employes. In rows four deep, formed an "aisle of onor" through which the funeral party passed Into the Independent Congregational church. Kvery one of them helped buy beautiful floral offer ings. Bight of the most stalwart em ployes bore Mr. Post's body to the grave. All over the cits' business was sus pended for two hours for the funeral. The Southern Michigan Baseball league allowed a scheduled game to be cancelled. Fully 25,000 people sur rounded the church and streets lead ing to it. Services were conducted by Rev. Thornton A. Mills, the Rev. Frederick H. Bod man, and Rev. Boswell O. Post, the latter a cousin from Jacksonville., III. The music was simple. A male quartet sang "Crossing the Bar." Mrs. C. S. Forslin sang "One Sweetly Sol emn Thought." The church was a mass of flowers. Mrs. Post asked that black be dis pensed with, so the entire city wore heliotrope. In closing their stores, merchants n?rely hung fine pictures of Mr. Post in the door, draped with heliotrope ribbons. Practically every business man and manufacturer, in cluding the wealthiest men here, marched as an escort of honor from the railroad station to the church.

RI Exceptional Reductions n Bed Room Furniture- n ed to establish themselves, the lice, though constantly fought, have never been effectively treated (this is the case especially with red mites, which secrete themselves about the roxts). For lice on poultry, dry insecticides (powdered) are used, for lice about the rcosts, nests and buildings, liquid insecticides are applied freely to in fested places. Vices. The bad habits of poultry are devel oped almost wholly in close confine ment under unsatisfactory conditions. Feather eating, eRg eating, and various forms of cannibalism common among closely confined poultry are rarely seen among fowls at liberty amid favorable surroundings, and give comparatively little trouble among closely confined birds if the conditions are sanitary and they have something to occupy their attention. Feeding in littered floors, supplying dry ground grains in hop pers, and giving cabbages, mangels, and dried meat and fish, all help to prevent vices by giving the birds some thing to do and think about. Vices once started spread rapidly. The only effective way to suppress them is by improving the conditions. Sometimes a change of quarters and the removal of the worst offenders will stop a bad habit not too firmly established. The reliable cure is right conditions. Illi nois Farmers' Institute Bulletin.

According to social usage, women in Peru cannot attend funerals, and they i do not appear at weddings unless they are very Intimate friends. When a funeral procession passes through the streets the coffin is carried upon the shoulders of the pallbearers, who are followed by an empty hearse drawn by two, four or six horses, according to the means of the mourners and their desire for display. All the male members of the family and friends of the deceased follow on foot, with a line of empty carriages behind them. As long as they are in the presence of the dead It is considered a proper and necessary evidence of respect to walk. After the body has been committed to the grave those who attend the f'l neral are brought home in the car riages. H. C. Jeweler. CHEER Safety Building. An Anti-Climax. Sir Henry Irving was frequently a victim to the interjections of gallery cods. When playing "Macbeth" one night he had reached that dramatic moment In the banquet scene when in dreadful fear he bids the ghost of Banquo to vanish: Hence, horrible shadow! Unreal mockery, bence! he exclaimed and, shuddering convul sively, dropped to his knees. veriug his face with his robe. As the ghost vanished a shrill volv in the gallery broke the roomeiil silence, "It's all right now, 'Enery; he's gone!" Lon don Mail. The Dog Morland Painted.
