TO GATHER PRUNES. CALIFORNIA RANCHER HOPES TO USE MONKEYS. Orders a Consignment of 5C0 Chat terers from Panama and Will Train Them to Work in the Orchards. San Jose, Cal. Central American monkejs, trained to hop over orchard clods and pick up the succulent prunes that are now ripening In Santa Clara valley, are believed by Martin V. Seely of this city to be the solution of the California labor problem. To this end Mr. Seely has ordered a consignment ONE STONE FENCES FARM. Missouri Man Has Land Where No Wheel Ever Rolled. Jasper, Mo. Within sight of this town a settler has a farm which prob ably is unlike any other in the world. This farm occupies the tableland on the summit of a ridge and is inclosed with a fence which no animal has ever broken through. It does not rise above the surface of the farm, but falls sheer from the edge a distance of many feet. The man who homesteaded the table land had a hard climb up the face of a perpendicular cliff to reach the com paratively level summit. At one point a ledge extends out a few inches and along the face of the eliff at an upward grade. Hy following his ledge and making use of occa sional points of rocks and of shrubs growing in the fissures the discoverer pulled himself to the summit and found a surface will covered with a soft and luxuiiant vegetation. Gradually he improved the ledge un til he could carry up tools and seed. Hy blasting and ('.rilling he cleared a narrow trail, tip which he was able to take first some pis and then a cow. Later on he took up a horse. And that today is the condition of this curiously protected farm. No ve hicle has turned a uheel within its limits of palisades. The live stock has multiplied and consumes the grain raised. Some stones thrown across the trail completely fence in the hog and cattle. When the farmer hats stock to sell he drives the animals down the private trail and strikes the road to Jasper. MAN HOLDS MANY JOB3. Reporter Is Mayor, Magistrate, Audi tor, City Clerk and Other Things. Courtdale, Pa. Not many public of fices have escaped George Washington Williams, who is burgess or mayor. Justice of the peace, auditor, secretary of the council or city clerk, and pres ident of the board of health. Were he to lose his job as reporter on n local paper he might easily pick out and handle several other borough posi tions. Williams moved to Courtdale from Wilkesbarre twe years ago. Al most immediately he was elected sec rotary of the borough council. He still retained his newspaper job, and one night was detailed te report a Republican caucus. Much to his sur prise the caucus selected him as a candidate for burgess. He accepted and was elected by four votes over Jacob Hunt, who had lived there 50 years. Ills administration is a big success. And then the other offices came. Only cne person in Courtdale held as many offices as Williams. This was Miss Ix.ilse Her.nett, organ ist of the Methodist Episcopal church, organist for the' Sunday school, teach er, superintendent e;f the Junior Kp worth Iacue and president of the Women's Home Mission society. Just to end the rivalry Williams married the girl. of 500 simians from Panama and Is now training some eight or ten on his ranch in the coast range foothills. For years California fruit growers yearly have been confronted with the question of harvesting their crops. Santa Clara valley is the heaviest pro ducer of primes In the t'nited States, if not in the world. The work of gath ering the fruit into boxes for shipping after it has ripened and fallen to the ground formerly was done by men sent by labor agencies from San Francisco, augmented by school children from foothill towns. Hut with the influx of aggiesslve Japanese white labor rebelled against POWER FROM -zr-4y y ' j yy w j i ! - The Paris municipality continues to cover itself with glory. It is always up-to-date. The latest discovery placed at its service enables the city fathers to dispose of the city dust and to transform it into electric energy. The debris of a big city is treated at a factory, where it is passed through pipes and partially burnt; the product of combustion is transformed into electricity. There is an establishment at Issy that covers an area of about 40,000 square feet, and both the river and the railway company serve to bring rubbish for treatment. Revere Bell Since 1810 This Bell Has Pealed Forth Calls fcr Service. Hoston. The Unitarian church at Norton has two distinctions. In the first place it was organized 194 years ago, making it one of the oldest re ligious societies of continuous exist ence in this state. In the second place there is on1 of the much coveted Paul Hevere bells in the tower of the edi fice. Since 1M0 this hell has pealed forth the calls to service s, and to-day Its condition is good. In thot year a number of men and women who con sidered the Unitarian church as their home of spiritual endeavor, raised a sufficient sum among themselves to purchase the bell and offer it as a gift to the parish. On Maich 0. 1810, the records show that it was "voted to accept the pres ent made to the parish of a bell, give leave that fald bell be hung on the meeting house, and that the ringing cf the bell on Sunday morning be nine o'clock." The bell was bought at Hoston of working by the eJde of that frocn the orient, and as a result the little brown men overwhelmed the fruit ranches. Of late seasons, however, there has been a shortage of prune pickers, both American and Japanese, and in many instances shippings were delayed and several crops lost through the lack of harvest hands. The usual floating labor population of San Francisco did not respond readily to the calls of the ranchers, and consequently the marketing of the crops was hindered. Hut now comes Seely with a pana cea for the prune men's harvesting Ills. Seely proposes to raise the monkey to the level of the fruit grower, and he is confident of ultimate success. "Jt always has been difficult for us to obtain adequate help when most needed." he said. "When hands are available we are imposed upon In wages. Last year I sold the crop of a 20-acre lot of prunes, expecting to have them gathered. Hut when the time for the first picking arrived not one man or boy appeared. Finally, with the help of Japs and Chinese 1 fulfilled my end of the contract, but at a loss. "Then an old friend from Iowa vis ited me. Prunes, orientals and climate were all strange to him. When he first saw the Japs squatting or hop ping around beneath the trees he laughed and said: " 'Where did you get all those monkeys?' "After he had relumed east I thought over his remark, and the idea occurred to me, why not get genuine monkeys to pick prunes? "Hefore coming to California I worked in Central America, and while there became acquainted with A. H. Janes of Acapulco, Panama. Janes owned a coffee plantation. The forest about his ranch clearings abounded with monkeys. The natives caught many young ones and trained them to pick fruit. "So 1 have written to Janes and he is gathering monkeys and will ship them to me at once. Meantime I have obtained a number from San Francisco dealers. They now are In the hands of trainers, but as the animals are still strange 1 can't say how the venture will result. If 1 get the right kind of monkeys. I'm sure I will be successful. "A well-bred, well behaved monkey ought to be able to do the work of ten Japs. Then there would be no wages and the feed and salary of the train er would he my only expense. The animals ordered are young and ought to prove satisfactory if properly trained. I will muzzle them to prevent them from eating the fruit, and expect to divide the 500 into 50 bands, ten to a trainer." PARIS DUST in its Tower. PmjI Hevere & Sons.

It was erected in 1710. The seats were not put in until 1715. That building was replaced by a larger one about 1750. The present structure was built in IS 35. Eight Weasels Attack a Cow. Hanover, Pa. Haymakers on the farm of H. A. Sell, near Hanover, no ticed a cow in a near by meadow strangely jumping about and bellowing loudly. Upon investigation they were astonished to find that eight weasels had attacked her. After a hard fight the farmers succeeded in killing sev eral of the blood suckers and scatter ing the remainder. THE STATE III GENERAL A MYSTERY WHICH STARTLED FENTON AND IS UNDER INVESTIGATION. TWO SUSPECTS JAILED. There Are Peculiar Circumstances That May Bring to Light Crime Not Before Suspected. James Hlanchard and Iela Cossel man, the central figures In a strange case at Fenton which has been en gaging the attention of the author ities are lodged in Jail at Flint. The accusation against them is that they have been consorting as man and wife without having gone through the cere mony of a marriage, but behind this charge is a purpose on the part of the authorities to keep the couple apart and under lock and key until it can be determined whether or not they have any guilty knowledge of the death of George Marple, the former owner of the farm on which they have been living, and his daughter Klla. The circumstances surrounding the death of Mrs. Hlanchard last spring are also to be Investigated. Marple died nine years ago last Oc tober and the story is that he was found dead In a chair in an upstairs room. The death of the daughter oc curred last May and is also regarded with suspicion in the light of the developments of the last few days. George Marple came to Michigan 14 years ago from near Johnstown, N. Y., following the death of his wife, bringing with him his daughter Ella and his hired man and hired girl, Jas. Hlanchard and Lela Cosselman. He purchased and settled on a farm on the outskirts of the village of Fen ton. Apparently he was well supplied with money and did not exhaust his means when he paid $2,000 for the farm. What became of the money he had remaining is one of the things the officers are now endeavoring to find out. There was some gossip in the neighborhood after Marple's death, but nothing was done In the way of an Investigation. ' The body was shipped back east for burial, Hlanch ard says. When Interrogated by the officers concerning the whereabouts of Ella Marple, Hlanchard and the Cosselman woman said that she had gone away several months ago, and when they had last heard from her she was in Chicago. Upon being asked concerning a death that occurred in their home last May, they declared that the de cedent was a woman named White who had come to Fenton from Marion. O.. and was taken sick on the day of her arrival in the village. Although the woman was a stran ger to them, they said, they had taken her in and done the best they could for her until she died. After telling this story Hlanchard and the woman produced a photograph purporting to be that of the mysterious "Mrs. Whife," but one of the officers recog nized it as that of the picture of Ella Marple. and the couple admitted that "Mrs. White" and Ella Marple were one and the same persons. The investigation that is now in progress is the result ef statements made by Anna Cosselman, 16 years old, a sister of the Cosselman woman. The girl came to the Hlanchard home from the east last May to make her home with her sister. This was after the death of Ella Marple. Ann says iliere was one room in the house that Hlanchard or her sister would not let her go into, and when she finally looke-d through the crack in the door, she says she saw Mood spots on th' floor. Then she became fright tied, she says, and last Tuesday s-he went to make her home with a ne-iuhbor. No such room was found when the of ficers visited the place, and this part of the fciiTs story appears to have had the origin in an overwrought imagina tion. The investigation thus far has brought out so many peculiar circum stances and developed such an air of mystery concerning the rie-aths of Farmer Marple and his daughter, how ever, that the authorities have deter mined to leave no stone unturned to probe- the affair to the bottom.
