FARMING MADE TO PAY BY 1,200 KANSAS WOMEN. Many Widows, and Some Taught School Follow Scientific Methods. Kansas has 1,200 women who are the active managers of farms, and there is scarcely one who has not made a suc cess of her work. These women are scattered over fifty-four counties. Most women owning farm lands rent the property, and generally they have an agent who looks after nffnirs for them. Hut the Kansas 1,200 direct matters for themselves. The Kansas woman farmer is scien tific. It is estimated by tho state au thorities that 08 per cent of the wo men in active management of farms lire members of farmers' institutes. Most of tho Kansas women farmers tivc in central and western Kansas. Among them are about thirty women schoolteachers who abandoned school work because it was undermining their health. Some bought farm lands, and others took up homfgds on the gov ernment's lands oi'tlio state school lands, Many women farmers are widows to whom were left good farms and fami lies to support when tho husband died. These seldom do any of tho work, as they are able to hire men from their own neighborhood, but all the prob lems of management are solved by tho women. Probably the best known woman farmer in Kansas is Miss Mary Best of Barber county. Every bushel of her wheat is sold to millers and state experiment stations at double the usual wheat market figures, it being used for seed by men who want the best seed grown in the state. One year tho Oklahoma Agricultural col lego bought tho entire wheat crop of Miss Best's farm. 92.035 MEN UNDER ARMS. December With Over 3,000 Recruits Sets an Enlistment High Water Mark.

Tho slump began In tho spring of 1012 and continued until July, 1013. when a rapid increase was noted.

Head it: Matthew' MoKeon, 409 Ridge street, Honesdale, Pa., says: "I wish to tell the people of Honesdale that I found Doan's Kidney Pills a most reliable kidney remedy. I suffered from a dull pain in the small of my back and I was convinced that my kidneys were disordered, as the kid ney secretions were unnatural.

HAPPY IN HER GOOD DEEDS. Helping and Cheering Fellow Unfortu nates In Russian Penal Settlement Aids Mme. Catherine Broshkovskaya to Bear Her Cross Aged Martyr's Recent Letters to Friends In America. Tho recent attempted escapo of Mme. Catherine Broshkovskaya, tho "mother of the Russian revolution," as sho is called, from exile in dreaded Siberia, has again attracted world wide atten tion to this brave woman, now near Ing her seventieth j'ear, who is un dergoing her second or "perpetual" term. She was sentenced to exile in March, 1010, after a trial, whose pro ceedings wore followed with intense interest. The charge against her was conspiracy in conjunction with Nicolas Tchaikovsky, the "father of the revolution," who had been active for reform since 1870. The man was acquitted on evidence brought from the United States. Becnuse she would not plead for tho Russlari emperor's clemency Mme. Broshkovskaya has been Incarcerat ed at KIrensk, a penal settlement 420 miles northeast of Irkutsk. At the time of her recent attempt to gain her freedom she went to din ner under police escort at tho lodging of a fellow exile, Vladlmlroff, and re mained there till evening. Then n companion, Andreeff, dressed In Mme. Breshkovskaya's clothing, emerged from the house supported by Vladlml roff, and, pretending to bo a sick wo man. Accompanied by the police es cort the accomplice hobbled to tho lodging of Mme. Broshkovskaya nnd crawled Into her bed, where he re mained. Constabulary Intercepted a convey ance speeding on tho way to Yakutsk, on tho river Lena, and, recognized among Its occupants Mme. BreshUov skaya, dressed as a man. She had In her possession a counterfeit passport and a sum of money. Lectured In United States. It was In 18S3 that Mine Broshkov skaya was first sent to Siberia. Re leased after twenty-one years, she came to America and formed many close friendships with other leading workers in the fight against the cznr. Sho toured tho'principnl cities, lectur ing on the cnuso of freedom in her na tive land. She picked up something of tho English language, but It was not until her return to exile that sho mas tered Its intricacies sufficiently to use It in correspondence. ner friends in this country have re ceived many letters from her. Through them shone the old time spirit of fight and fortitude which twenty-one years in exile had not dimmed when she enmo to this country in 1004. In one of theso letters sho tells of changed conditions In tho opening of tho exile's mail slnco the days of her first banishment, but ndds that the habit of persecution nnd espionage is so old that the guards aro never tired of indulging in it, "During tho festivities of Christmas," sho continues, "when here many young persons disguise themselves and go through tho town with their masks, my keepers are afraid I will escapo in that, manner, and they run about llko mad men, searching and looking after every one. Intruding themselves into every house suspected to bo the place of ray visit. "Every path I raako is surveyed by a gloomy figure shrouded In black furs from head to foot nnd standing Im movable near the house I visit. "Without permission I cannot place my foot on tho frozen river, for It would bo regarded ns an attempt to escapo. All the night they nro look ing into tho windows of my cabin." Mothers a Thousand Exiles. , In another letter to n friend in this country she says: "I did not receive or hear of tho money you sent me. Often my heart overflows with sorrow, for there Is much need of help hero, where many boys have their feet fro zen for want of a suitablo booting. 1 feel I am responsible, for I consider tho young people as my own children, my grandsons." Another of the exiles in Siberia writes, "Sho cares for and mothers a thousand exiles, giving them heart and courage." CLASS WITHOUT A TEACHER. Cincinnati Pupils Are Their Own In structors In Civics. A teacberless class has been started at Woodward high school, Cincinnati. It works automatically. Tho teacher leaves tho room. The pupils, under command of a full set of their own officers, proceed to the regular order f the day's business, ust as they would at a meeting of a fraternity Tho teacher is not missed at all. And thus besides learning the sub ject at hand tho teacberless pupils get a special byproduct course in self gov trnment, leadership and Initiative. At present the teacberless system Is applied to the civics course. It was devised by Frank P. Goodwin, head of the civics department, whoso theory is that the best way to teach civics is to let civic classes covern tbemsnlvn SLUMP IN "BEER" PRODUCTION Decrease In Output of Beverage of 1,106,429 Barrels Compared With the Previous Year. Looks as If beer drinking is on tho decline in the United States. Uncle Sam produces the figures 10 provo it. According to the annual report of the Internal revenue commissioner for the fiscal year ending Juno SO, there was a decrease In the output of beer of 1,106,429 barrels compared with the previous year. That's a big decrease. Counting 30 gallons to the barrel, and thoro is more, It means a slump of 33,192370 gallons. Counting only ten glasses to the gal lon, It means a docroase of 831,928,700 drinks. Counting each drink flvo cents, 1' shows that $16,590,455 less was spent for beer in 1912 than in 1911. There was an Increase In tho pro duction of whisky, but tho bonded warehouses are filled with the stuff, and distillers are all "fussed up" be cause the supply is far exceeding tho demand. Americans aro not all on tho water wagon by any means, but more of them are climbing aboard right along. American lesuo.
