SEATTLE'S BIG SUCCESS
The success of the Alaska-
Yukon-Pacific , Exposition is fur
ther notice to the effete. east that
fell the enterprise, all theability,
fell the resources, all the money,
is . not :: confined to Wall street,
Nye Yorruck. This success is in
he nature of an affront to - the
knickerbockers and bean eaters,
Who fondly imagine that Buffalo
is . west and that St. Louis is. in
Australia,, and for that reason
the . success at Seattle is all the
more enjopable. The big fair
brought thousands of easterners
vto see the great West.. That has
done us great good and them a
great deal more. It's to be re
gretted that we can not keep a
" big show running all the "time,
especially as " long as, we; can
make them pay expenses and
provide a surplus of $200,000 in
six months.' '
TRYING TO "FIX" TAGGART
It is interesting to note that
the Democratic party of Indiana
is' seeking to rid ' itself of the
leadership of such men as Tom
Taggart, one time campaign
manager5 of the 'Natioriaf party,
and "Crawford Fairbanks, 'dis
tiller of Terrer Haute. Taggart
has been a disreputable politi
cian for years, owner ' :of a
gambling hell "at French1 Lick,
Indiana. ' A' short time ago "his
name ' was used in connection
w$n . the Ella Gingles case,
Chicago. u French Lick 'and West
Braden Springs are towns of
from 500 to 1000 population a half
mile apart in the most inaecess-.
ible part of Indiana. Here' Tag
"gart has a million dollar hotel
and Lee ' Sinclair ownes another
resort of the same kind. The
big saloon men, theatrical dis
graces,' pugilists, racing men
and other ilk of Indianapolis,
Chicago, Louisville Cincinnati,
St Louis and New York, gather
mere to gamble and ta-ouse.
Taggart has been a disgrace to
the Democratic party and to ' his
State and the sooner he is laid on
the shelf the more respect will
the state have for Indiana dem
ocracy. . -

ECZEMA A GERM DISEASE

Sufferer . ' " .'.
When the skin of an . eczema
sufferer itches and burns in un
told agony, do you know what is
going on within the pores . of
Myriads of microscopic animals
are gnawing at the flesh, break
ing down the . fine cells and
causing festers, thick scales and
that terrible itch. The germs
multiply faster than nature can
throw them off, ;
Now there is only one way to
get 1 rid of these germs they
must be killed in their .: lodging
places. Dosing the stomach or
trying to cure the blood will not,
of course, kill the germs, 'and
that is why all the blood reme
dies fail in eczema; . that is also
why salves which; do not , pene
trate can. do no. permanent good.
Ordinary' oil of wintergreen
properly compounded in liquid

the -skin - and Mil the eczema

thymol, glycerine and other in

"There is one kind1 of food

DIVORCE W GROWS
Fact Established by Government
MORE DECREES IN THE WEST
Almost a Million Separations In Twen
ty Years, an Increase of Two Hun-
v dred Per Cent Over Number In Pre
ceding Two Decades.
The census bureau has published a
comprehensive report on marriage and
divprce., The investigation of the sub
ject was undertaken by direction of
congress and grew out of a conference
in Washington by representatives of
various- religious denominations. The
investigation, has extended over a pe
riod of nearly five years. .
"Apparently the divorce rate; like the
velocity of a falling body, is constant
ly increasing." says (the report, "and it
is impossible to determine statistically
from available data Just what the: re
sults would be if the rate reached at
any particular time remained constant;
in other words, no statistics bearing on
this question of the duration of mar
riages ..terminated by divorce have
been obtained that accurately represent
present conditions or conditions at any
particular period, for the conditions are
'not static, but dynamic." , '
Statistics For Twenty Years.
The statistics cover a period 'from
1887 to the end of 1906. and the total
number of marriages recorded was 12,
832,044. - The investigation showed that
in the twenty years covered the num
ber of divorces granted was- 945.625.
In the twenty years from 1867 to 1886
the number was about 328,716. hardly
more than one-third of the number re
corded in the second twenty years. The
report says that each successive five
year period since 1867 has witnessed
a marked increase: in the number 'of
divorces. " - - v
: The report contends that it is a well
established fact that the marriage rate
is quickly responsive to -changes in
economic conditions, increasing in pe
riods of prosperity and decreasing after
a , commercial . crisis or panic 'during
hard times, and that especially note
worthy is the small increase shown for
the year 1S!)3 and the actual decrease
iothe succeeding year. '
' More Divorces In 'Western States. :
i The report says that the percentage
of 'marriages is higher in the sobth
than in the-north and that outside the
south the highest percentage prevails
in the: middle west. In. the south At
lantic group of states.the rate was 350
marriages? per 10.000 of adult , unmar
ried . population ..agaipst . .260. . in , the
north Atlantic, states and 436 , in the
south central as against 322 in ' the
north central and 273 per 10.000 ndnlt
unmarried population ' in the-' western
group" of states. .
j In 1906 the highest divorce rate per
100.000 estimated population; 168. was
reported . from the westers, division a
rate which ..was more than four, times
that reported from the, north Atlantic
division. -41rand" almost "four -rimes
that reported from the south Atlantic,
43. The rate for the-north central di
vision. 108. was almost two. and two
third tim'es that for the north At,antic.
While that for the s uth central. 118.
was two and three-fourth times that
for the south Atlantic., - Broadly speak
ing, the divorce rate increases as one
goes westward. j .; , : .;
JEWISH FARMERS' FAIR.
Federation. Holds a Convention and
! Gives Exhibition In New York.
,'Much, interest has been aroused
among the large Jewish population in
New York city by the first annual con
vention and fair of the Federation of
Jewish Farmers of America held in
the Educational Alliance building. For
several 'years a well defined movement
to take the Jewish immigrant from the
sweatshop to; the farm has been in
progress, and the fair was one evidence
of its success.
VThe .Federation of. Jewish Farmers
of America was organized last Janu
ary. The purpose of the federation is
to improve the material and social con
ditions of Jewish farmers and. what is
still more significant to stimulate an
interest in farm life among the. Jews
of the large. -cities. .The membership
Of tfce federation Is made, up of Jewish
farmers from all parts of t,be country
as far west as North Dakota. .Most of
these farmers . formerly, lived in the
congested districts of New York city.
There are about 5.000 Jewish farmers
in the Dnited States. '
- Corn. wheat, rye' "alfalfa and sun
flowers from Massachusetts and Con
necticut; ; melons, squash. '.pumpkins,
peanuts, potatoes and cauliflower from
New York: eggplant and - asparagus
from New Jersey and linseed and nail

of the exhibits -made by the farmers. ,

which is fitted with books, stanchions,
bits and bollards, to which the sub
marines, when the day's or night',
work is done, are made fast.
When the Castine came to anchor
those who were watching her ashore
were surprised to see four. funny look
ing vessels slowly steaming up to her
from the south. J As each submarine
fame alongside the crew came up out:
of the shell, and in five minutes the
vessel was, securely ' made fast to the
