name, of the parties who are trying
to bring about another conference"
said President Schardt. "Mr. Keppler
and I conferred with several Influen
tial men by appointment and at the
solicitation of disinterested parties.
Just what they are doing or how many
of the packer, these gentlemen saw,
( do not know.' I am convinced that
they are successful In a measure from
the fact that I wa. asked If President
Donnelly would return to the city soon,
and If a conference for Friday after
noon could be arranged satisfactorily."
Mr. Keppler .aid that President Don

THE POWER OF MONEY.
By Tristan Bernard.
When James Smith arrived at Gare
St Laxare after a rather tiresome trip
from Cherbourg, where he had landed
from one of the North German Lloyd
liners, he had Just 150 francs in his
possession. He might have lived on
this money for two month, until he
should have been able to get a position
a. valet for one of hi. numerous Amer
ican countrymen in that city, but this
thought never entered his mind. He
wa. a man of far greater talents and
had his face not been too familiar to
the officer, of the great oceun grey
hound, who warned his fellow passen
ger, against playing cards with him.
he would not now have been in this
embarrassing position. As it was, he
had, however, to make the best of It.
His suit the only one he had, by the
way was faultless, and for a few
francs he bought an elegant second
hand trunk covered with hotel labels
from all parts of the world. This he
filled with old paper to give it weight.
hired a cab and told the driver to take
him to the Hotel Tlbere, a small pri
vate but elegantly appointed hotel fre
quented .by wealthy and fashionable
people. Here he hired a suite of rooms
on the first floor and immediately gave
the waiter a tip of SO francs out of the
money he still had left.'
His first visit was to Duval, the swell
Canadian tailor, from whom he ordered
10 suits of clothes, choosing goods and
cut with the fastidiousness which made
a strong impression even on that
haughty person. From Teminore he
ordered shirts, collars, neckties and
underwear with more care than if he
had been King Edward, who wa
otherwise the firm', most difficult cus
tomer. At a cigar store he bought 10 postal
card, which he Immediately addressed
to himself In different handwriting,
and mailed them so that he was sure
he would be In when they arrived.
Before his return they had, of course,
all been carefully read by Mme. Tlbere.
the proprietes. of the hotel, who was
very much awed by their contents.
"My Dear Bir Your bid wa. the

given In payment, and deed is now re

"The diamond, are simply .uperb,

"ANNETTE tE BRUNEJAULT."
One afternoon James appeared at his
M. Duval, do you happen to have a
thousand francs in cash that you can
let me have? That will save me the
trouble of going to the bank, and I will
return them at 6."
M. Duval, who had seen no money
for his 10 suits, at first did not know
what to say, but then he thought that
a. long as he was in the soup for 3000
francs another thousand would not
make much difference, so he handed
over the money with a sickly smile.
James returned home and asked if
there was any mall for him, received
two letters with ducal coronets and
pulled out his wallet, asking Mme. Tl
bere to give him smaller bills for a
thousand franc note.
With the change In his pocket he
went to Teminore, ordered a small
change made in his order of neckties.
and then asked the clerk to get him a
thousand franc bill for a lot of change,
which took up too much space In his

he complained about the fit of his last

In the restaurant he asked the cash
ier to oblige him with one-hundred
franc bills for his two five-hundred
franc notes, and at 4:43 he handed his
delighted tailor the 10 bills, which he
almost had to force upon htm, as Mr.
Duval assured him that he did not need
them at all and that his customer might
need it, as it was after banking hours.
Having thus strengthened his credit,
Mr. James treated himself to an extra
bottle of champagne with his dinner,
which was cheerfully charged to his
account, and while eating he laid his
plan, for a greater coup, which would
give him money for a first class pas
sage to New York.

Wilson is second only to Winstoa sm

25,000,000 pounds. The ..crop marketed
in 1902-i brought to the planters about
2,500,000, the average price being about
10 cents a pound. Since, however, the
trust has come Into control ot th
market the crop has been less profita

cents. The acreage throughout the en

south has been greatly decreased, and
In North Carolina it wllf be not more
than 50 per cent as great as last year.

be even greater. Of course, The "bind
