' Margaret Witt was born April 10

a-d had she lived a few months
more would have reached 9o years.
A'- the age of iS she was married to

I ue nrst vvmter was spent at

nation claim near the present site
of Loourg, in this county. Here
she spent more than thirty years in
the varying struggles with pioneer
conditions. Her's was a strong
character and no matter how severe
the difficulty, it was always met

Another Director Who Didn't Know
The indignation of Justice Peck
ham of the Uuited States supreme
court at the acts of the M,eCurdy
mauagement of the Mutual Life In
surance Company is quite natural,
and his resignation as a memter ot
the hoard is the only consistent
thing he could now do.
It is to be regretted that as an
associate justice of the supreme
court of te United States he should
hive been one of the trustees of the
Mutual Lite uhder the onditious
that have been developed Judge
Peckham expresses, in a letter
which has beeu made public, hat
he learned with astouishrneut the
facts establishing the payment of
money to influence legislation and
to the campaign funds of political
parties. He also expresses his as
tonishment at the enormous in
crease in the salary paid to Mr.
MeCurdy." These things have been
done says Justice Peckham. with
out the slightest knowledge of the
board of trustees as a board, and he
does not kuow that any individual
member of that boar1? was aware of.
There could not be a better illus
tration of the dummy director than
this. This is said with no spirit of
ciiticism of Justice Peckham, whose
reputation is beyond reproach. But
h-re was one of the most eminent
jurists in the country, a member o!
the greatest court in the United
States, a man of great learning, who
while serving as a trustee of this
insurance company, was kept in ig
norance of some of the most impor
tant facts of its administration
Even the increase in the salarv of
the president to $150,000 a year
was not know to him.
This exposes the fact that there
is something wrong about the pres
ent system of control of business
enterprises by boards of director.
Either there must be some way of
securing directors who direct or
else the corporation system will go
to pieces. Wall Street Journal.

CKIId Slavery In the South
New York, Dec. 2. Professor
Felix Adler, speaking yesterday bo
fora lhe Society for Kthioal Culture,
said, among other things. "A new
kind of slavery which has grown up
in tne last lew years is the employ
ment of young children. In south
ern mills there are 6o,000 children
under the age of I4 working from
i0 to I4 hours, besides being com
pelled to work alternate nights.
Four or five years ago there were
only 24,000. There are also 8000
children working in and about
mines, and thousands employed lu
clothes factories when they should
be at home, and this terrible form
of slavery is spreading,"
