He's $300 a Year Behind, Says Expert at Hearing. Chicago, Oct. 27. Tho prosperity of the farmer is not all that it is cracked up to be. In fact, in the state of Iowa, where visions of bulging bins mislead the casual observer with notions of ease and plenty, tho average farmer who cultivates a quarter section of land is out of pocket $300 n year. That was the evidence given by n former Iowa farmer, H. C. Wallace, in the Interstate commerce commission's freight rate hearing. Of course tho $300 loss is not actual loss, explained Wallace. But the ren-. son the actual loss Is covered is be- piiiikp flip fnrmpr flops not count the cause the farmer does not count the value of his own labor, and ho makes his children work Instead of hiring help. Then the average farmer does without the things the city man con siders necessaries of life.

His best suit or Sunday clothes costs him about $15, where the aver age man pays from $25 to $40. NEW HAVEN BOARD ENLARGED Directors Authorized to Grant Pensions For Long Service. New Haven, Conn..

But Jack - son Kemper, with just as meager 1 Prospers, mm mu si.i" as ho has been called "the Bishop of all out-doors." Even before this, Philander Chase had got himself olected Bishop of Ohio and paid his own expenses, while doing his re- markablo work of starting colleges and laying foundations of churches. But Jackson Kemper was a mission ary bishop supported by tho Episcopal church at large. It was a humble be ginning one bishop, who had for his equipment ono church without a min ister in Missouri, and ono young mis sionary without a church to worship in Indiana. How pitiful was the sup port accorded him may be seen from an Impassioned appeal which he mado to the church for help threo years later in 1838: I demand of tho church, by virtue of my office and in the name of my divine Master, I de mand some additional, nblo and de voted laborers. If tho church wishes mo to work faithfully and steadily, you must inueeu you musi strengthen my hands by sending me more clergymen." But tho clergy men were not sent. Tho bishop had to work on alone with his difficulties. But he was a man to make tho de sert bloom like tho rose. From that ono missionary bishop supported by tho church in 1833 has grown a mighty army. Bishops, priests, and deacons, doctors, teachers, nurses, Bible-women, 1500 workers are now sent out and maintained by tho Epis copal church In tho U. S. to the mis sion field. A great strong work Is be ing done. Foundations have been laid upon which tho future will see mighty structures reared. See what history this vory convention records: Olympln and Sacramento, missionary districts on tho Pacific slope, mado solf-supportlng dioceses, Oklahoma divided Into two missionary districts Instead of ono, a now missionary dis trict in Texas, anothor in California, a new solf-supportlng diocese in tho westorn portion of this vory common wealth of Pennsylvania, and over In distant China tho missionary district of Hankow, Itself set off but C years ago, now the pnrent of a new and vigorous missionary district. That makes five now bishops for tho up building of tho church. Tho now canon on Suffragan or assistant bis hops will mean no ono knows how many more. Suroly the church is growing, n vision of glory llko that of Balaam Is being realized." VOTE FOR LEWIS. NOT GUILTY ! PAY THE COSTS! USUAL VERDICT RENDERED IN " GRAY MARE " CASE WILL . TEACH THE DEFENDANT A LESSON. Wednesday morning of October court session was entirely occupied by tho case of the Commonwealth versus James Manley, of Jessup, In dicted by tho grand Jury for cruelty to animals. District Attorney M. E. Simons had associated with him R. M. Salmon, Esq., In the conduct of tho case. J. L. Sherwood, constable of Preston township being tho pros ecutor.

Pleasant; Griffin Dumond, Buck ingham; Lewis Schwelghofer, Leban on; Calvin Schwelghofer, Damascus; Willis Tyler, Damascus. R. M. Salmon, Esq., in addressing the jury stated ttiat an attempt would be made to convict the defendant for cruelty to animals, the alleged offense having been the use of a gray mare in a two-wheeled dump cart provided with a .saddle which was supposed to have caused friction on the horse's back, breeding a sore there so deep that a man's whole hand could be put into it. Also that this was not the first arrest. Constable J. L. Sherwood, of Pres- ton, was the first witness called by the prosecution. He stated that he saw the defendant in Preston la3l June on the Ontario and Western railroad working between Wlnwood and Preston. Ho said he saw him standing on the bank overseeing Italians who were working, and that he conversed with him at different times with regard to a horse. He ordered the animal, which was a gray mare, unhooked, and not to be sent back to work. Sherwood said that he arrested the defendant twice, viz, June 19th and' again June 24th, When the constable asked him "whether he hadn't given him writ ten notice not to work" the defend ant said Yes." "I told him," con tinued the constable, "that I didn't think he was doing right working the horse under' those conditions." "I went down." sad Sherwood, "un hooked the horse and took the saddle off and found him sore on the back. Whenever the horso started to draw the load he would flinch and go down a little bit, as if it hurt him. He took the horse to the olllce of the 'Squire.

He said ne looked the horse over and found hi,n in g00d physical condition, but that he had a sore on the wethers. The soro could be worked up and down, and the joints on the back bone could be seen. "I don't see," ho said, "how they could work the horse without the saddle irritating It." On cross-examination he stated: "Well, I should say that the sore was caused by somo part of the harness." M. H. Davis, of Wlnwood. tho third witness, stated that he knew tho de fendant by sight and that he issued a warrant ror nis arresi juue He ordered the horse brought to his office for examination. He found a sore on its backbono two by three Inches. On June ISth he also Is sued a warrant and had n hearing. On June ISth he rend tho charge to tho defendant who stated, ' I don't know whether 1 can do anything but plead guilty," and fined him $10 and costs which ho paid. The defendant offered Mr. Harding ns bondsman, but this was refused as tho latter owned no property In this county. When C. A. McCarty, Esq., attor ney for the defendant, showed Mr. Davis a receipt it helped to refresh Mr. Davis' memory, and ho admitted that Manley paid tho fine under pro test. Frnnk Card, of Wlnwood, was the next witness. He testified to seoing tho horso ilinch while It was pulling tho cnrK On cross-examination ho snld Mr. Harding had comploto charge, ns foreman, of the work, nnd that all were subject to his Instruc tions. A. D. Kellogg, of Wlnwood, was called and said ho wns a farmer, who had done somo horse dealing. He saw tho raw soro on the mare's back just back of tho wethers whero tho saddlo would naturally set. On cross-examination he said tho horso Jumped when ho tried to put his hand on the soro. Warner Decker, of Preston Park, testified to boarding tho horses, and that tho defendant's fathor paid tho rent. Tho soro was raw and extend ed over the backbono. James Man ley doctored tho horso, and he helped put some stuff on his back. On cross-examination ho said the horses were used In drawing dirt on a grad- (Contlnued on Pago Five.)
