TWENTY-TWO YEARS THE HEAD
OF HIGHEST COURT.
SUCCUMBS AT SUMMER HOME
Scholarly , Dignified Man , Esteemed
by Ass-oclatco Was Enjoying
Good Health and Friends
Bar Harbor , Maine. Chief Justice
Melville W. Fuller , ot the United
States supreme court died of heart
failure at his summer homo In Sor-
route "Monday " morning.
The death of the chief justice was
entirely unexpected , as ho had 'been
In apparently good health lately,1 * and
there had been no premonitory symp
toms of any kind of trouble. Sunday
ho attended church as usual , and
when ho rotlrcd he was to all ap
pearances In his customary health.
Death came about C o'clock. His
daughter , Mrs. Nathaniel Francis and
Rev. James B. Freeman , who was a
guest of Justice Fuller , were with the
jurist when ho died.
For many years the chief justice
had spent his summer ! ) at Sorrento ,
a summer colony located on French
man's bay , five miles from Bar Har
The chief Justice felt Ill soon after
daylight , and the members of the
household and his physicians wore
summoned. Nothing could be done
to avert death , however , and Justice
Fuller died' ' In the arms of Mrs. Fran
cis. Her daughter , Miss Aubrey , was
Washington. 'News ' of the death of
Chief Justice Fuller occasioned sur
prise hero because of the general be
lief that ho was enjoying good health
for a. man of his years. For twenty-
two years Mr. Fuller had been the
chief justice of the United States.
Probably not since the time of Chief
Justice Marshall , who presided over
the court for thirty-three years , did
questions of such moment came be
fore the court us In the period when
Justice Fuller was Us most promi
nent figure. It was he also who ad
ministered the oath of inauguration
to every president at regular Inaug
urations clnco Harrison's.
Just a day or two 'before the chief
justice left Washington for Bar Har
bor he made a tiresome business trip
to Chicago and return.
Aside from the grief over the death
of the chief justice regret was heard
on every side that the country was to
be deprived of his services just at
the time when many important cases
were to bo passed upon.
Faith In Democratic Voters.
5 > > Lincoln. In a statement Issued to
\ the democrats of Nebraska W. J.
' T3ryan expresses disappointment at
the action of Governor Shallenberger
In refusing to call a special session of
the legislature to deal with the Ini
tiative and referendum. Ho declares
that if he had had the support of
< Jovornor Shauenuerger , ' .Mayor Dam-
man of Omalia and Congressman
Hitchcock , one of the candidates for
the United States senate In this mat
ter , a special session would have been
called , an initiative and referendum
law would have been passed and the
local political atmosphere would have
been so cleared that the democratic
party of the state could have chal
lenged the republicans to defend their
record on national Issues.
Now , ho concludes , the county op
tion Issue must he met squarely.
"The first thing , " he says , "to agree
upon Is that the policy of the party
should bo determined by the voters of
the party ; when we have reached an
agreement upon this proposition we
can then proceed to ascertain what
a majority ot the democrats desire. "
He holds that the party should de
clare Itself on the county option Issue.
Ilcferring to the position of candi
dates for the gubernatorial nomina
tion , who , If elected might vote any
law passed by the legislature , Mr.
Bryan asks a few questions :
"Is It possible for a candidate for
governor to go through a campaign
without announcing his views on a
jnxmt question , upon tho. decision of
which ho will exert so large an in-
iluence ? "
"Is a candidate worthy of the confi
dence of the voters If he Is not willIng -
' Ing to announce his position on such
an Issue ? "
"Since Urn declaration of the candl
date's position would 'be equlvalonl
to a platform declaration , what ob
jection can there be to the declara
tion being made by the party ? "
"Is It fair ( o the candidate to throw
upon him the burden of stating the
party's position on a disputed quor
tion ? "
"Is It fair to the party to throw
upon it the risk of having the candi
date state a position antagonistic to
the views of the members of tin
party ? "
Jeffries a Broken Idol.
Heno , 'Nev. ' James J. Jeffries , of
California , winner of twenty-two
championship fights , the man who
was never brought to his knees be
fore 1 > y a blow , has passed Into his
tory as a broken Idol. He met ut
ter dofcat at the hands of the black
champion. While Jeffries was not
counted out , he was saved from the
crowning shumn by his friends ask
ing Johnson not to hit him again
and the towel was brought Into the
ring from his corner.

How a Bride's Roses Led Her to Tears
CITY , MO When Willie
Boy got married ho bought his
wife flowers , of course. And after the
wedding Mr. Willie Boy naturally de
cided to preserve the flowers to look
at for all time by pickling them In
alcohol. That was all right It didn't
cost much , just $2 or $3 but there
was a 700-mllo trip before Mr. and
Mrs. Willie Boy got home.
At first they decided they'd pack
the treasure in the brass jardiniere
"Art" sent and bring it homo in the
bottom of one of the trunks. Then
Emallno that's her first name re
membered that among other things it
might explode and ruin her perfectly
good rose-colored dress that "Doc"
went crazy over before she was mar
ried , and that there was a 20-Inch wil
low plume In the same trunk , not to
speak of a pretty coat , a lavender
gown , a few more hats , a couple of
hundred doodads or some more
clothes. So the natural consequence
camo. Willie Boy carried the remains.
The Pullman was hot and Willie
Boy thought of the explosion. No use
leaving the Jar out on the vestibule.
It might break there. Ho wanted to
stay in the Pullman , but ho couldn't
Ho had to stay outshlo and hold the
pickled roses. Night came and Willie
Boy was sleepy. Ho wont to bed , but
ho didn't sleep ; hO'Wan ' too busy hangIng -
Ing the roses out of the window to
keep the alcohol-cool.
Kansas City came , and then home ;
Emallno walked into the house and
Willie Boy followed with the pickled
"Whnt'll wo do. with 'orn ? " ho asked.
"Why , put them in the attic , ol
course , " Emallno answered.
Willie Boy hadn't been married
very long and ho wasn't independent
Still thcro surged into his face the
blood of battle and his voice splut
tered as ho spoko.
"A-at-tlc ? " ho asked. ' "Will wo ?
We won't. I carried those things 700
miles , and If they're worth carrying
that far they're worth looking at , oven
if I don't think they amount to much.
Attic nothing. Mantel , that's where
they're going , understand mantel.
Hear me ? "
And that'o the reason Emallno cried

Mosquito Gets Credit for a Runaway
YORK. A mosquito which apparently
parently was a cross of the famous
or notorious families of Jersey well-
borers and Staten Island rock-drillers ,
saw Qcorgo Gordon's nose , buzzed a
little song about "Oh , for a pasture
new ! " and swept down upon the nose.
The nose and George were at that

Now , Gordon had had all ho could
do to manage that skittish steed be
fore the advent of the insect When
he felt the first Jab of the skeeter's

And there was George in a dilemma
equal to that ancient * ono that concerned -
corned a devil and a deep sea. If he
didn't knock that mosquito off his
nose he'd lese his life blood , but If ho
took a band from the reins to deliver
that knockout swing away would go

Gordon shook his head violently
and blow his breath toward the mos
quito to dislodge It , but all to no pur
pose. The insect held on and just
bored and bored. Gordon gritted hla
teeth and remembered the story he
had read in school about the Spartan.
But what was a mere fox gnawing at
a boy's vitals to a real , war-size Jersey
mosquito sinking an artesian well in a
man's nose !
George could stand it no longer. Up
went one hand in a savage sweep. It
missed the mosquito. Forgetting all
except his desire for vengeance ,
George swung with the other hand.
And as the skccter buzzed 'Ha , ha ! "
the horse , freed from control , bolted.
Perhaps the wind created by the speed

At any rate the pest vanished. Jusl
as Gordon grabbed the reins and

landed bruised and stunned at the

The flrst muskrat farm has been

The farm may figure as a worthy
champion in the fight against the high
cost of living. Secretary of Agrlcul

emphasized Its cheapness and its
good qualities , including flavor am

muskrats were good to cat , wo docldot
