Democrats and Prohibitionists
Charge Him With Hypocrisy.
And His Administration as State
Treasurer Is Made the Subject of a
Sharp Attack.
Without tho Republicans being call
ed upon to flro a shot, William II.
Berry, the Koystone Party nomlneo
for governor, has been fairly riddled
by the oratorical batteries of the Pro
hibitionists nnd the faction of the De
mocracy which ho dosortod when ho
was defeated In the Allentown conven
tion. From every side, Berry's reputation
for veracity has boen attacked. Ho Is
accused of falsehood, of breaking his
solemn promises and of hypocrisy of
the rankost kind.
Not only is his word questioned, but
sorlous allegations rogardlng his con
duct whllo holding tho ofllce of state
treasurer are being boldly made by
some of tho most promlnont leaders In
tho Democratic party.
Hot Democratic Declaration.
Berry's refusal to withdraw from tho
field, after Grim, tho Democratic nom
inee for governor, had expressed a wil
lingness to comply with tho. request of
prominent Democrats and Independ
ents, that both Borry nnd Grim retire
to permit of fusion on former Mayor
Guthrie, of Pittsburg, called forth fur
ther bitter denunciations of the Key
r'.one candidate, who was accused of
selfishness and bolng lacking in pa
triotism. In an address to tho voters of Penn
sylvania the Democratic state execu
tive committee has denounced Berry
as insincere. Berry's refusal to com
ply with the request of the representa
tive citizens who asked him to retire
to permit of fusion, they say "Is con
vincing evidence of tho fact that his
only object is to dofeat Mr. Grim and
not Mr. Tener."
Tho address refers to Mr. Berry as
"ono whose record In financial transac
tions is, to say tho least, not above
suspicion," and asks whether tho peo
ple shall expect good government from
Senator Grim or from "one who has
been accused in tho public press of de
positing public funds whilst In an im
portant official position to financial in
stitutions for tho promotion of his own
enterprises 7"
At a mass meeting hold in Philadel
phia last wek, W. K. Mayers, of Har
rlsburg, in a 'speech declared that
when Berry was elected treasurer a
number of prominent Democrats went
to him and offered to go on his bond,
but he declined tho proffer and ac
cepted the services of the president
of a Harrisburg trust company. This
8 the company through which Berry,
whllo he was stato treasure, floated a
big loan for tho Berry brick yard, and
it has been a subject of comment that
while Berry was stato treasurer the
state deposits in this trust company
were Increased enormously.
Prohibition Nominee on Berry.
In a speech delivered a few nights
ago, Madison P. Larkln, Prohibition
nominee for governor, paid his re
spects to Mr. Berry.
"Tho Koystone Party," said Mr.
Larkln, "with W. H. Berry at Its head,
Is nothing more than a lot of dis
gruntled offlco-seekers kicked out of
other parties. It is nominations and
offices they want. They don't want re
form! Berry is for temperance today,
whisky tomorrow and local option tho
next day. Tho Keystone Porty people
don't know what thoy want;"
"Votes for" Borry will come from
where his is not known," ho declared.
"His nelghbois will not support him
because thoy say he Is too tricky.
Berry has had his arms up for years,
llko lightning rods waiting to be struck
by all the party conventions in tho
state. He comos now with his boss
ridden Keystone Party claiming It Is
an nntl-llquor party, which Is only a
big bluff. He Is not sincere. Ho has
no high principles for the good of the
whole people, but he alms to satisfy a
porsonal ambition and to satisfy a
grudgo against his political cnomlcs.
"Berry got tho nomination of tho
Prohibition party before, but ho do
sorted at the most critical moment and
went over to support a whisky candi
date and ho stumped tho state for him
just bofore election. Then ho was dis
gruntled becauso tho Prohibitionists
did not honor him with the nomination
this year."
Berry's Democratic Allies.
Mr. Berry Is a Domocrat, but ho has
no party standing. He doos not como
as a candidate of a party. Ho is solf
nppolntod, or, to bo more precise, ho
Is the appointee of a handful of solf
appointed delogatos who gatherod to
gether to carry out tho Borry wlshei
and tho Berry ambitions.
On tho Berry ticket is a host of
Democratic candidates for congress
and the legislature. Thoso cnndl'toe
nro not tho.o by tho virtue of primary
oloctlons, but by tho grace of the Berry
stato committee, which assumes to
Itself tho volco of the people.

Captain Refuses to Desert Vessel After

llont more than a few hours Captain
E. D. Walls refused to desert the sink
ing four masted schooner Holllswood,
which was caught off the Virginia
coast In last week's storm. The story
of Captain Walls' heroism was made
public when the Norwegian schooner
Ilarald nrrlved In port carrying the
seven men saved from the Holllswood.
"She's my ship, boys, and I'll stick
to her. You save your lives," were
Captain Walls' last words when his
men begged him to nbandon the sink

similar to thnt of the Holllswood,

The Holllswood was thirteen days
out from Mexico, bound to New York
with lumber, when on Oct 13 the
storm hit her.
When Captain Berg of the Ilarald
reached here he at once communicated
with Pendleton & Pendleton and gave
them Captain Walls' message. He
added, however, lie thought nny search
for the captain would be fruitless, as
he had in all probability gone down
with his ship on the day of the rescue.

who could have told them how the

happened had Hill preferred to stick
to state politics and remained stead
fast In his determination not to be

seemed listless, nnd even when Hill
rose to speak tho applause that met
him wns largely perfunctory. He
walked quietly to tho front of tho plat

without speaking. Then ho said In a
clear yolco that reached every part of

"I am a Democrat"

Ration to Be Fed Dead
Largely on Milk Production.
To make the dairy profitable with
feedstuffs nt present prices, the herd
has to be ono In which every animal
shows n good milk test and respond
automatically', so to speak, to good
feeding. The farmer can determine
their qualifications as milk producer
by use of tho scales and Bnbcock test.
When it comes to feed lie should do
some careful figuring on what to feed
and how much. Nature has provided
that tho cow supply herself first and
the milk bucket second. True, somo
high bred dairy animals will keep up
their milk flow for n time by depleting
their own bodies, but that menus se
rious injury to them. Experiments
show that normally about CO per cent
of the food which a cow can eat goes
for the maintenance of tho body. Tho
other 40 per cent flnds Its way Into
tho milk pall. Tho cow is, therefore,
entitled to all she can eat and digest
To feed her economically, no dairy
man can say feed each cow so many
pounds of grain and so many pounds
of roughnge. Tho amount of each feed
depends largely upon the flow of milk.
A cow giving n largo flow' of milk re
quires more feed than one giving loss.
Hero Is where good Judgment Is above
par. Oftcr tho cow owner has more
grain than roughnge or ho may be
short on grain nnd long on roughage.
Ho will need to mnkc a close study
of tho balancod ration to put profit iu
the pail.
Sometimes wo get the Idea that tho
more n cow eats tho more milk she
Will give. If she assimilates all she
cats that is a fact, but there Is such
a thing as overdoing tho mntter, so
that the excess of feed will be an ac
tual hindrance to the production of
milk. What we want to do Is to feed
the cow all she will turn to ndvantago
and no more. Clean mangers will
tell tho story as n rule. Anything left
over Is a pretty good sign that we are.
feeding toff much of some things.

Lord Courtney's Wit.
Lord Courtney, who recently colo
bratod his 78th birthday, has n happy
wit. During tho tlmo ho was a mem
ber of tho House of Commons he was
nsked nt ono of tho meetings of his
constituents whether ho was in f,vor
of n bill to legalize marriage with a
deceased wife's sister. "May I In
quire," ho asked, "whother the ques
tioner is mnrried?" The gentle nan
replied that ho wni and that his wlfo
had a sister. "Is your wlfo prt.,cn?"
asked tho future peer. "She Is not"
"Well," said Mr. Courtney (aft ho
then wns), "my wlfo is prosent, and
sho, too, hns a sister." Tho meeMng
saw tho member's point nnd the
question was not pressed further.
When One Is Choking.
"Rnlslng tho left arm as high as
you can will relieve choking much
moro rapidly than being thuir.p0 on
tho back," said one'of tho ris.-nt
physicians of a local hospital. "This
should bo more generally known for
often a person gots choked whllo
eating when there Is no one near to
thump him or her. Very rrequontly at
meals nnd when they are at play
children got choked while eating nd
the customary manner of relieving
them Is to slap them sharply on tho
back. The effect of this is to set tho
obstruction free, so that It can bo
swallowed. The same thing can bo
brought about by rnlslng tho left hand
of the child as high as possible, and
tho relief comes much more rapidly.
In happenings of this kind thero
should be no alarm, for If a child sees
that older persons or parents get ex
cited It Is very liable to become so
also. Tho best thing is to tell tho
child to rnlso Its left arm, and Imme
diately the obstruction passes down
the throat" Philadelphia Record.
A Course In Diving.
The freo instruction given by tho
United States navy at Its seamen
gunners' school Includes a course In
diving. Many of the younger blue
Jackets become very proflctent in this
work. Besides his regular pay tho
member of a ship's crew, if a diver,
receives an extra compensation of
$1.20 per hour for the actual tlmo ho
us employed under water.
The Diving Bell.
The history of diving reaches back
into the dim and distant past Alex
ander the Great Is said to have de
scended In a machine which kept him
dry whllo making some kind of sub
marine Investigation. Aristotle men
tions a device which enabled men to
remain some time under water. In
a book published early In tho six
teenth century appears a picture of a
man wearing a helmet, to which Is
fastened a leather tube floated on tho
surface of tho water by an Inflated
bag. In 153S two Greeks mado a sub
marl no trip under an Inverted cham
ber, which kept them dry. This was

Charles V. and somo 12,000 specta-
