The Fish Ret Law.
Since the passage of the Act of May
29th, 1901, a general erase baa arisen
among people living along the larger
streams to fish with nets and some
have po many of them that they can
hardly remember where they have
them all set. We learn from reliable
sources that while the law allows flail
ing with nets, nearly all of those who
are fishing violate the 8th section of
said Act and are in great danger of be
ing prosecuted and fined heavily. For
the benefit of your readers kindly pub
lish a portion of the bald s ection, via :
"That each fyke net shall have attach-
ed thereto a metallic tag bearing,
legibly marked thereon, the name and
address of the owner thereof. Any
such person or persons, violating the
provisions of this section, shall on con
viction thereof as provided In section
thirty-eight of this Act, be subject to
a floe of twenty five dollars for each
fyke net placed In violation of the pro
visions of this section, and also to a
fine of ten dollars for each fish unlaw
fully kept, together with forfeiture of
nets and all other appliances, so used,
to the Fish Commissioners."
By an earlier act all the constables
are maae ex-omcio uame ana xisu
Wardens and are compelled to see that
all laws are enforced.

an there so many contingencies and
uncertain factors. Keeping store and
running a mill is confined to four walls
and a definite constituency of patrons.
The farm depends on every, wind that
blows and frost that falls and every
vagary of sky. No book can expound
what a farmer must do in handling bis
particular price of land or forewarn
him as to the best time to market
Men may live a lifetime on the farm
before they learn lust how to run it
The past generation has been a sad
time for farmers. The readjustment
forced the virgin lands of the west and
railroad discrimination in carrying
irrains pinched the eastern farmers
sorely. But agriculture Is catching up,
the poor farmers reviving. The cul
ture of fruit, the developement of the
dairy and the restoration of the little
things will sllowly increase farm values
If farmers have but the sense to guard
their own Interest and vote men into
office who will-protect agriculture.
Amerciau agriculture will again be
successful there can be no true and
permanent prosperity without it. Tre
mendous educational influences are be
hind it and the time will surely come
when the farm will be restored to the
first rank In social economy and will
reap profits commensurate with the
skill and effort employed. God put
the first man on the farm and no
calling can compare with it in variety
and charm to a sensitive mind. The
man in a factory behind a machine
doing the same work every day knows
nothing of the eternal freshness vof
that man's life who works behind
the machine we call nature. To be an
out-door man, to take into one's spirit
all the varying moods of nature, to bo
kin to every bird and beast to greet
the sun at dawn and lie down at night

EARNINGS OF INVENTORS.
Prom the Chicago Inter Ocemn.
The inventor of fifty or sixty years
ago was more often out at the elbows
than well paid. But George W. Walsh'
gathers for Gunton's Magazine statis
tics that modern Inventing has become
profitable and that as a rule inventors
are now well rewarded. The inventor
of tho metal shoe-button fastener made
a fortune, and the inveutor of the
wooden shoe peg made half a million
dollars. The suspender-garter inven
tion was sold outright for $50,000, and
the glass lemon squeezer brought as

So muca for tiie inveuiors whose
names are rarely heard among the
thousands who use their luveutions.
But the great inventors of modern
times have most of them become mil
lionaires. Elias Howe, the inventor of
the sewing machine, realized $2,000-
000 from his patents. Alexander Gra
ham Bell made several millions from
his patents. Cyrus H. McCormick, in
ventor of the reaping machine, realized
a net profit of $10,000,000.
George Henry Corliss amassed a for
tune or $o,uuu,uuu. bamuel Colt, or re
volver fame, and Hay ward A.Harvey,
the inventor of the Harvey Ized steel
armor-plate process, both were million
aires. Mr. Edison counts his fortune
in the millions. Kliliu Thompson, the
Inventor of electric welding and braz
ing, and Wcstiiighouse, inventor of the
air brake, reaped immense fortunes
from their patents, and Tenia, careless
as he is of pecuniary rewards, is earn
ing hundreds of dollars every year.
Mr. Walsh uses Edison, Thompson
and Teslu to illustrate the type of in
ventor who earns both reputation and
wealth. Tho names of such men have
become household words all over the
clvllzed world. Independent of this
class is the larger class in whose ranks
are hundreds aud thousands who make
respectable fortunes without enchan
ing their reputations because their in
ventions become the property of and
are handled by manufacturers.
The conclusion is that in this day
discoverers or Inventors go unrewarded
and that the figure of the modern In
ventor Is less pathetic than the old be
cause there is in his career so little of
struggle, proverty and privation.

Letter to Geo. W. Wagenseller,
Dear Sir: Is a gallon of paint a gallon
of paint, or a half-a-giillou? Sometimes
one, sometimes the other. E. P, Lynch,
and his predecessor, Delhi, X. Y. sold a
well-known Mixed Taint for twenty
years It's a good paint ns mixed paints
N. Avery owns two houses exactly
alike there. He painted one four years
ago with this Mixed Paints took
twelve gallons. Last spring, he painted
with Devoe ; bought 12 gallons and
had six gallons left. Same painter: (!eo.
Gilbert. Same result, so far as it looks
But the point of the tale is: 1st, That
a paint is dear or cheap according to
what it is; no matter about the price.
2nd, That a gallon of one kind of paint
can contain twice as much paint as a
gallon of another kind of paint.
Devoe goes twice as far as Mixed
Paint two to one but that Isn't all.
This story, however, skins the rest-
how it wears.
Another, some town F ergusou A
Thompson's store was painted some
years ago with this same Mixed Tain

Mr. Lynch said 16 gallon would be
enough. They have 3 gallons.left.
