HAD PAPER IN 1604 Was Published Earlier Than Bos ton News Letter. Periodical, In Manuscript Form, Called "Master William," Issued 300 Years Ago by French on St. Croix Island, Me. New York. An Industrious digger Into the depths of the past has brought to light the Interesting fact that America's first newspaper was published a full century earlier than the date commonly ascribed. If It was not a newspaper in the later ac ceptance of the term It was at least a periodical, prepared and published with more or less regularity for the eager perusal of the little community which It served. In short it was on St Croix Island, a few miles below the present city of Calais; that the Master William was published during the winter of 1604 05 by the members of the French ex pedition under DeMonts and Cham plain, who were seeking to establish there tho capital of the vast and vague empire claimed by France In America. They were the first Euro peans to pass a winter on these north ern shores of the new world since the days of the legendary North men centuries before; and at that time they were the only Europeans In America north of the Spaniards In Florida, Samuel Champlaln himself, later the founder of Quebec and the father of New France, was the chronicler of the expedition, and in his vivid story of that winter on St. Croix Is land he makes express mention of the Master William, the significance of which appears to have been over looked by historians generally. He relates that the paper was prepared from time to time "by the bright spir its of the party" to while away the tedium of the long and severe win ter. It was passed around in writ ton, not printed, form; but among s few score men, all deadhead sub scribers, that was a wholly satisfac tory method of publication. French Socialist Trades People and Politicians of Re public Fight Measure That Would Lower Living Cost. Paris. The government's proposal to reduce the present high cost of liv ing by the establishment of municipal bakers' and butchers' shops through out the country is meeting with deter mined opposition from various quar ters. It was of course foreseen that the trades people, whose business would be subject to competition, would raise an outcry, but It has come as a great surprise that many politicians, who might have been expected to back tt heartily, are either maintain ing a neutral position or support ing the opposition. In nearly all cases the radical so cialists have criticised the project severely as unworkable and Ineffica cious and the very few that Is the collectlvtsts who have felt bound for the sake of consistency to favor the bill, are doing so with very little en thusiasm An excellent Indication of the strong feeling against the bill has Just been given by the debate and vote or the Paris municipal council on a resolution presented by Councilor Roblglla, protesting against the crea tion of co-operative shops. At the meeting of the council, which was exceptionally well attended, forty members voted for the resolution and thirteen against It All the latter were avowed collectlvtsts, but a nuni bei of extreme "lefts," or radical BUILDING TO AMERICAN INDIAN Christmas day, 1604, was celebrated by the colony with special test It was the first Christmas observance, by the way, In what Is now New Eng land and after the religious exercises of the morning and before the feast ing and drinking and general merry making became too boisterous a spe cial Christmas Issue of the Master William was read to the company by the editors. So early did the Idea of the "extra" and the "holiday num ber" take root In American Journal Ism! It Is a great pity that the chronicler did not Include a copy of the Master William in his record, or something more about It than the bare mention of its occasional appear ance. It was not until 1704, a full century later, that the Boston News Letter was established, commonly spoken of as the first newspaper In America, and continuing for fifteen years to be the Worry Kills Strain of Husband's Fight With Classls Too Great for Passaic (N. J.) Woman. Passaic, N. J. Illness brought on' by worry over the troubles her hus band had with the members of the North Side Christian Reformed church and the Classls of Hudson, to which it belongs, hastened the death of Mrs. Arle J. Vandenheuvel, according to a statement made by her physician. Six months ago Mr. Vandenheuvel was dragged Into the divoi-ce suit of one of his churchmen as a witness. His testimony was a large factor In causing Vice-Chancellor Stevenson to annul the marriage, but caused a row in his congregation, which resulted Is his being suspended by the classls. Mrs. Vaudenheuvel, who helped her husband In the fight, was takeu 111, but even in her Illness she kept in touch with every movement made by her husband's enemies. Recently the members of the church, a majority of whom iavored Mr. Van Bill Doomed members abstained from voting al together. In accordance with the large majority of votes a protest, strongly worded, haa been forwarded to the prime minister. Thus this extremely important experiment In municipal trading, supported by the govern ment, has been rejected by the great est municipal body In France. The feeling among the public Is correspondingly strong. It Is pointed out that co-operative Bhops not being obliged to mako a profit and being backed by the funds of the municipality will be able to retail goods at low prices and thus badly Profit In Muskrat Farm Woman Enlarging Her Bank Account In Novel Manner Owns 400 Acres of Marsh Lands.

An attempt was mads to publish a newspaper In Boston In 1690, but only one Issue was put forth. It was called Public Occur rences, and the watchful authorities promptly snuffed it out "for uttering reflection of a very high order." How successfully have most newspapers of later years steered clear of any such dangerl But we are wandering far from the enterprising young adventurers of St. Croix Island and their newspaper of 1604. Their effort was a small one and the results were transient; but there is a certain sentiment which attaches to first things, and in his torical matters a certain Importance also. The Master William deserves Its rescue from oblivion, and should not again be neglected when the story of the feeble beginning of new world Journalism is told. But what an opportunity was missed by the pub lishers of tho Calais Times or the Eastport Sentinel when the failed to take the name of the pioneer sheet and to put forth the claim of being Its direct successor.

DEFY DEATH IN GOLD RUSH Race to New Fields, 130 Miles From Dawson, Being Made With Tem perature at 40 Below Zero. Dawson, Y. T.

The temperature was about zero when the rush began, but has since dropped to 40 degrees below. damage, if not ruin, the business of private trades people. At the same time the probable raising of taxes and the various notorious Instances of mismanage ment by the state when it has tried to compete in trade or commerce are pointed to as proof of the un soundness of the measure. The bill has caused the greatest consternation among the small shop keepers of the country, who see them selves threatened with ruin. Their unions are prepared to defend thorn selves to the utmost against the fav ored competitor. In view of the almost universal disapproval of the government's pro prosed plunge into socialism It seems probable that the bill will quietly be dropped. count.

When hard and native lumber Is used, the maximum slse Is 7x9 feet, with rear wall 6 feet. 2 Inches and front wall 6 feet 10 Inches.

Perches are In the back part of the building, with dropping board under them. Nest boxes are under the dropping board to economize space.

One of these little houses ac commodates 30 to 35 Leghorn fowls. Eggs From Pure-bred Fowls. It took some of us a good many years to discover that there was more profit in selling eggs from pure bred fowls at $1.50 and $2 per dozen than from the barnyard variety at 25 cents. It Is easy to figure that 25 pure breds will earn more money than 100 barn yards. Feed lime and charcoal liberally. Do not breed from fowls that are too old. Millet seed is an excellent egg pro ducing grain. Many poultrymen raise lettuce just for hen feed. An Incubator will not trample on and break the eggs. A few undesirable eggs will lower the price of a whole crate. Cut clover hay has helped revolu tionize the poultry business. Feeds rich In protein should make up a large part of the ration. A male bird is past his best stage after he has seen two breeding sea eons. A lousy hen never thrives and dally atentton should be given to keep lice and mites down. Alfalfa, green or the dry leaves, pro duces an ideal color In the yolk when the hens have an abundance of it, All eggs used for eating should be from hens that have no male birds running with them. Such eggs are infertile. It will pay the poultry grower to make a careful study of the color and quality of yolk that Is demanded by the high-class trade, and then learn how to produce it. The poultryman shone endeavor to feed all that the bens w".l consume and return a profit for it, and skill and experience are necessary to de termine this amount. Eggs are bought by the dozen, but the poultryman who always markets large, heavy eggs soon gets a premi um of 6 cents or more a dozen above the price for ordinary eggs. The wisdom of giving the fowls a well balanced ration may not appeal to many, but a practical demonstra tion of what the well balanced ration will do wlU convince the most skeptical.

When well selected food has helped the honest physician place his patient in sturdy health and free from the "doctor habit," it ls a source of satis faction to all parties. A Chicago wom an says: "We have not had a doctor in the house during all the 5 years that we have been using Grape-Nuts food. Be fore we began, however, we had 'the doctor habit,' and scarcely a week went by without a call on our physician. "When our youngest boy arrived, 6 years ago, I was very much run down and nervous, suffering from indiges tion and almost continuous headaches. I was not able to attend to my ordinary domestic duties and was so nervous that I could scarcely control myself. Under sdvice I took to Grape-Nuts. "I am now, and have been ever since we began to use Grape-Nuts food, able to do7 all my own work. The dyspep sia, headaches, nervousness and rheu matism which used to drive me fairly wild, have entirely disappeared.
