HE KEPT HIS VOW.
And Apples in One Farmer's Orchard
Were Free to All.
The late It. II. Stoddard used some-
times to narrate a striking experience
that befall him during a walking trip
In New England.
"During this tour," he said, "I came
one August afternoon, to an apple or
chard In be outskirts of a village, and
on the fence I saw a placard inviting
travelers to enter and partake of the
inviting fruit within. I ate an apple
or two, and then perceived the owner
approaching from his barn.
"He was an intelligent young man,
and I asked him why he was so gener
ous with his apples.
" Til tell you, sir,' he replied. 'When
my father was a boy, he had to walk,
one summer, a matter of 200 miles,
working out his meals as he traveled.
There was a certain apple orchard
that he came upon, and an apple that
had fallen from one of the trees lay
in the road. He picked It up and was
about to eat it. But the farmer had
perceived him, and he ordered him to
put the appi back. My father obeyed,
of course, but he told the man that he
was mighty mean with his fruit, and
he said he would himself, some day,
plant a hundred apple trees for the
free use of travelers exclusively. For
tune went well with my father, sir, and
this is the orchard that he planted. All
the fruit here will be free always."
Chicken Serum.
In view of the fact that chickens do
not suffer from tuberculosis, Dr. VI
guler de Malllane of Frnce tried to
cultivate the bacllljs of consumption
in the serum of fowls' hlood, and com
pletely failed. He la now experiment
ing with encouraging results in the
use of chi"'An serum as an antitoxin
for consumption.
Loubet Studies Astronomy.
President Loubet will resume his
study of astronomy as soon as he lays
down the cares of state. An observa
tory Is being built on the grounds of
the chateau which the president re
cently purchased.

IN MEMORIAM
Kobert Lyman Uussell was born In
Virgil Courtland County N. Y. Sept
the 27th 1825 and with his sister LydU
was the youngest of a family of four
teen children and was the la9t to au
swer the death roll call re8Kndlng
Saturday morning August the 22nd
1903 at six o'clock.
Ills parents were Joaiah and Betsy
Itussell. Of his early boyhood we
have but little knowledge. lie came
from Oakland County Michigan and
was preHent as a boy underage at the
time ef the first township election of
the Township of Otiuco April 2nd 1838.
His older brother Amos II. Russell
who came to Otieco first in 1837 had
just brought his family to Otlsco and
iioix. i t I.4 man como with them.
He was married to Miss Lucy Ann
Brown in 1848 and settled In Grattan
Kent county where his daughter Ger
trude now Mrs. VV. H. Olds was born
A few years later he moved to Otisco
whero his on Hrvant John Russell
now of Luther was born both of whom
survive the father.
In 1879 he moved to Luther then a
dense forest In the employ of the old
Wilson, Luther and Wilson Lumber
Company as land looker, surveyer and
pine estimator with whom he re
in lined ten years.
Here he lost his wife Lucy in 188
and was married again to Mrs. Eleanor
Dimmick of Grattan in 1888 but was
once more left a widower In 1894 since
which time he has made his home
with bis only eon Bryant J. Russell of
Luthur.
His early life in the pioneer days of
Ionia county gave him an extensive
knowledge of timber and for years his
estimates of standing timber either
pine or hardwood were considered
standard authority for the amount
upon any given tract of land. Millions
of feet of timber have been bought sud
old upon his estimates alone.
He was a staunch Republican of no
mean power and held many public of
lices of trust in both Ionia and Lake
counties and was a veritabe land mark
in the history of the last named county
Last fall he cut his leg badly while
hewing timber for a new barn, losing
a large amount of blood, which at his
age left him in a weakened condition
so that when stomach trouble set In he
wasn t strong enough to cope with the
c mbined forces which gradually sap
ped his wonderful vitality as ho was
a man of strong constitution and of al
most udparalled nerve, his power of
endurance being marvellous. He pass
ed beyond into the great unknown
very eravely and without fear, his
mind clear to the last.
Robert L Ru-sell was a man of wide
reputation and formed many ties of
lasting friendship during life. Wan
familiarly and almost universally
kuown as "Uncle Lyman." His demise
w ill bo mourned not only by a large
circle of friends and relatives but by
tho general public as well.

From South Haven Dally Tribune.
No more powerful argument from

rouowing letters. Thev need no
comment:
South Haven. March. 1903.
To . the public As a real estate
agent of your city. I wish to make
few statements for your earnest con
sideration of the saloon question
tnat certainly are to your Interest
As you all well know today, this
part of Michigan is the only part of
the state that is not overrun with
au undesirable element. Why? For
the simple reason there are no
saloons to call it here.
Out of over 300 neoole that I drov
through this county, last year. 1 d
not think that oveJ 5 of that num
ber were men that ever took a drink
themselves, and preferred to locate
where there were no saloons.
In all of my advertising and cor
respondence 1 make a special poin
of no saloons In this county. I hon
estly believe that over one-half of
the sales of property that have been
made and the increase in tbe value
of farm land in this county, can be
directly traced to the fact of there
being no saloons. As von well
know the class of people com in 1
hero to buy farms are men that are
not in favor of saloons or they
would not come. If you still wish
that increase m the value of you
farms, give this subject earnest con
sideration and vote dry.
Yours truly,

Gentlemen of the campaign com
mittee of Van Huron County In re
sponso to your inquiry I write to
T L . 1 . f .. I 1
any mail 1 -uui u ueueverin local op
tion in Van Buren County as else
where. First, because it closes th
doors of the saloon with its corrup
ting Influences upon the youth o
the land. Second, because the open
saloon conduces to the moral, in
tellectual, social and fiuaacial deg
redation of our adult population
Ihe saloon is a blot upon the Fa
name of our city and surrounding
country 10 the minds of pros pet iv
nome-seek-ors. f ourth, the inert
fact that there is no open saloon
to
be found in our favored fruit land
is, in itself, one of the strongest in
ducernents for the best class of peo
pie, especially those who have fam
liies to seek homes with us. I have
known , many moderate drinkers
who say thev have no anxiety foi
themselves, but prefer to locati
their families where they are not
subject to tho contaminating in
Alienees of the saloon.
I have heard many of our best
summer visitors say, thev had ik
fear about leaving their families in
our city or vicinity for the summer
as there was no danger here from
intoxicated or disorderly people, as
was the case in other localities
where the liquor traflic was unre
strained. H. J. EDO ELL.
With local option so highly
recommended by real estate men
of South Haven, have the business
men in Helding or in fact Ionia
county any cause to fear the closiiu
of saloons f
