Her 104th Birthday
To resell a hundred years is remarkable
and worthy of note, but what shall we say
when one reaches 104 years ? Such is the
ase with Mrs. Electa Kennedy of Healds
burgh, Calif., who reached that remark
able period Jan. 22d last. Mrs, Kennedy
is a sister of the late Mrs. Harriet Dutton
who it will be remembered reached tbe
great age of 97. Mrs.Kennedy is an aunt
of W. D. Isham and F. B. Noble of this
town. She was born in Derby, Vt., fail
ing health induced her to go to Mexico
with her husband, where they resided
until the Mexican war broke out. They
went to California during the gold rusti
of '49, where she has since lived. Her
husband died several years ago. "Grand
ma" Kennedy, as she is called lives with
her son George, who is 78 years old and
attributes ber longevity to nothing in
particular, except that she has lived the
"simple life." She takes great interest
in politics and as the women in that state
vote she has several times cast a ballot.
The Santa Rosa Republican of Jan. 29th
last gives the following account of her
100th birthday reception:

many happy returns of the day and she
says she expects to vote for president in
Although she has reached this advanced

Debate on Noah's Rainbow.
When lecturing on the weather be
fore the New York Ministers' associa
tion of the Reformed Church a few
months ago, A. J. Devoe, Hackensack
weather prophet, asserted that the
rainbow seen by Noah at the end of
the deluge was the first rainbow ever
seen by man. Why? Because there
never had been rain before the flood!
The Rev. J. C. Hume of Brooklyn, op
posed that view of the rain and rain
bows, and has continued to assert that
they always existed. He finally chal
lenged Devoe to a public debate. Hack

The Youth's Companion recounts a
story of a wedding described in Dr.
Winifred Heston's "A Bluestocking in
"Yesterday I went to a native Chris
tian wedding. Many guests had as
sembled and the ceremony had pro
gressed to the point where 'Mr. Grey
asked the bride:
" 'Do you take this man to love,
cherish and obey?' when the young
woman in the case responded with a
surprising and unmistakable 'No!'
"Mr. Grey labored with her in an
undertone, but to no avail. The mar
riage had, as usual, been arranged by
the parents without consulting the
daughter. But it is almost an un
known thing for a girl to be so bold
and disobedient. The situation was
then explained to the assembled
guests, and volunteers were asked to
supply the vacancy. A young woman
promptly came forward and the cere
mony proceeded as if nothing had
"Afterward the bridal pair loft the
altar by different aisles to hold a re

From the Greek.
Greeks call a city "polls." The fun
damental, or root, of the word was
"pol." The Aryan stock, from which
Greek and Latin descended, had a
way of emphasizing an idea by redu
plicating; that is, by repeating the
roct 'liable. So probably after the
sep.irvtion of the Greek from hi3 Asi
atic birthplace, the old parent stock
reduplicated "pol" and made "polpol"
of It, by' which was meant one Inhab
itant of the city. That reduplicated
word appears in Latin as "populus,"
meaning now ail the citizens or a
"polis." The Latin went out from the
Aryan hive long after the Greeks. They
carried "populus" with them, but left
"polls" behind. The English descend
ant of the Aryan stock says "people"
now instead of "populus," but almost
keeps the original in "population." lie
keeps "polis" also. In the word-"politics,"
which is easily seen by its
etymology to be "the science of be
ing a citizen."

Several of the smaller state granges
held their annual sessions In Decern
her, and the .chief facts of Interest to
the public have beeu condensed in the
following paragraphs:
In Ohio one mijibt have thought that
an adjourned session of the natioual
grange was on so strenuous seemed it
Isational Secretary Freeman started
the ball rolling with some very plain
language in his public speech about
Secretary of Agriculture Houston.
What the national grange special com
mittee said about the secretary wasn't
"in it" with what Mr. Freeman had to
say. And he likewise paid his respects
to Governor Cox in plain terms. The
Ohio grange threw cold water, real Ice
water, on Secretary Sandles' pet corn
boys' Junket to Washington and pro
posed that the money thus used might
better be expended in sending the fas:
boys and girls to the state university
for a course in manual training and
domestic science. The grange also op
posed the minimum wage law and any
limitation of working hours for men
and women as tending to the increase
of the cost of living. It was thought
that these matters should be left to
private arrangement. The Warnes
law. which seeks to reform certain
methods in taxation and make .assess
ors appointive instead of elective, was
opposed.. The grange also wanted the
restrictions npon the initiative and ref
erendum removed to the end that vot
ers may use It when doslred. Central
ized schools were Indorsed for such
townships as can adopt the plan to ad
vantage The no free pass rule In rela
tion to admission to the state fair the
grange desired to have enforced with
out favor. Relative to farm credits, it
was the sense of the grange that any
legislation for such credits should be
of a national character, with the state
as a unit and with government control.
George E. Scott of Jefferson county
was elected to the executive commit
tee, and this was the only election this
year. Two hundred candidates took
the sixth degree.
Delaware State Grange.
Delaware will be the host of tbe
national grange next year, and it is
announced that Wilmington will be
the place of meeting. Governor Miller
addressed the state grange and ex
pressed a willingness to aid the work
of the grange us best he could. The
opening of co-operative stores in each
county was recommended, members
of the grange to get a discount on
goods purchased. The grange has been
back of several Important state meas
ures the past year in favoring the
erection ofan affiliated college for
women to be built at Newark, has
urged appropriations for Delaware col
lege and has favored the bills for aid
to the state board of education. Tbe
grange insurance company carries $3,
000,000 in insurance on grangers' prop
erty at a cost to the insured of about
$2.M on the $1,000. There are only
forty-one granges In Delaware, with
about 2.400 members.
New Jersey Grange.
New Jersey has 201 subordinate
granges, in wnicn tnere are io.uuu
members. The annual meeting was
held at Atlantic City. State Master
Gaunt said there were two or three
things of particular importance to the
grange just now, and among these
were the exemption of motor vehicles
from taxation, but materially increas
ing the license fees. A change in tbe
school laws was needed, he thought
because they gave the state board of
education too much power and the dis
trict hoards too little. The elimination
of grade crossings was advocated. The
establishment of demonstration farms
was recommended. These several rec
ommendations of the state luasder
were approved by the grange and also
the extension of special courses in
agriculture in rural schools. The only
officers chosen were two members of
the executive committee, and H. M.
Loveland of Cohansey and Albert Her
itage of Mickeltown wei v-elected.
Interesting Vermont Case.
What are known ns the grange store
cases have been before the Vermont
courts for some time. Three suit?
were brought against the defendants,
as directors of a grange store, under
the statute which provides that direc
tors who consent to the indebtedness
of a corporation exceeding by more
than two-thirds the capital stock ac
tually paid in are themselves liable
i for the Indebtedness. The cases have
been fought through each term of
', county court, and at the last term the
case was allowed to go to the supreme
court to have tbe matter of law decid
ed. This court has sustained the de
murrer of tbe defendants and holds
that no suit at law can be maintained
against tbe defendants and gives Onal
Judgment for the defendants to recov
er the costs. The court holds that the
defendants are liable, but satisfaction
must be sought through tbe chancery

We do not ask you to take our word as to its val

letters just received from some of our last year's
customers :
Ex-Governor Josiah Grout of Derby purchased
a fifteen-ton carload. Itead what he says.
"I used the Fertilizing Salt last season on oats and think I
realized a paying return. The ground was of a light, quick soil,
and of medium quality. I applied, as the oats were coming up,
about 400 lbs. to the acre. I used it on about 20 acres and har
vested over 1,000 bushels of good oats. Used no other Fertilizer.
The grass seed catch was fine."
Good Fertilizer and
Cheapest Ever Bought
The Fertilizing Salt I bought of you
last year was very satisfactory to me. I
experimented on several crops. On
grassland ii will doable the crop. It
will make pastures good for all summer

On Oats, it does very well. Also im
proved Mangels and Turnips. I am still
experimenting on it, but can recommend
it as a good Fertilizer and the cheapest I
ever bought. Yonrs truly,

Excellent for
Asparagus and Potatoes
I used your Fertilizing Salt with good
results on my Asparagus. I also used it
on manure piles that I bought and piled
and think that it stopped the loss caused
by heating. The balance I nsed with
the most strawy part of the piles put on
to the load after it was loaded onto the
spreader and used in on the lightest soil
on old ground) where I planted pota
toes. Of course, the ground was well
fertilized in addition to the salt with a
suitable amount of manure for Immns
aud pottto fertilizers and thoroughly
cultivated throughout the reason. The
tubers wore smooth and of good quality.
