) I \ V/HAT INSURANCE COP/1 MISS I ONERS SAY Insurance Commissioner "Wm. H. Hotchkiss of New York , chairman of the executive committee of the Na tional Convention of Insurance Com missioners , prior to the last Head Camp of the Modern Woodmen of America , gave the following official notice to that society : "Pursuant to action of the national convention of state insurance commis sioners , at its adjourned session In December last , I write you this ex pression of views as to the necessity of your order as well as all ot ! f ' fraternal benefit societies placing itself on a firm foundation as to rates. An Insurance society which in these days does not recognize that the cost of insurance is fixed by laws other than man's laws namely , the laws of nature or prescribes for its mem bers either a fiat rate , irrespective of the age of its members , or any other rate that is not scientifically safe , is deceiving both itself and its members and approaching the time perhaps slowly , but not the less surely when it must fail and its contracts be repudiated. The fraternal spirit is a good thing ; but the rates and man agement of fraternal societies must aLe bo such that the beneficiaries of tl 3 last member to die will receive evcrv dollar that such member's cer- tifica- - > calls for. " State Insurance Commissioner r..ern cf Y.'isconsfn has issued an of ficial In' rvlew In which he says : "Fraternal societies generally have come to recognize that their business must be conducted on a sound basis. This means a re-rating for nearly ev ery society , and members who do not fully understand the situation are often inclined to complain of in creases in their rates. They should understand that -with a re-rating on a sound basis they have a much more valuable insurance than before. All are benefited by getting a permanent insurance for what was uncertain be fore. The Modern "Woodmen of Amer ica , by reason of its long experience with a large membership , is permitted to make a rate upon its own experi ence , which is even lower than that based on the National Fraternal Con gress table , \vhich new societies must adopt. The cost of this insurance is not a matter of mortality tables or rates charged , but depends upon the actual deaths in the society. A re- rating merely means that each mem ber shall pay his real share of that cost. Members -who think of drop ping their insurance will do "well to take enough time to study the ques tion before doing anything which may "bring regret to both themselves and their families. " The Chicago Inter Ocean says : "It is unpleasant for the members of the Modern Woodmen Society to have to pay more for their insurance , but let them think how much more un pleasant it would be for those 5,000.- 000 women and children , or any of them , to be deprived of that protec tion because their hu = bands or fath ers got angry. That Js what all Wood men should think about. " Troubles Laid to "In-Law. " "The cause of more than half the family scraps that are scrapped to a finish , " says an exchange , "is the 'in- law. ' A man or a woman marries some one absolutely antagonistic to. all the other members of the family , and then , putting this person on a ped estal , demands that all shall do her or his will. For the sake of courtesy , often a whole family will yield many points , and gradually the 'in-law' be comes more and more insistent , and so things drift along , always the one side giving in , until some straw , some trifle , will prove the drop too much , and after that the fracas. With the j \ air cleared , a beginning can be made j over again on a basis of equal rights , or else all intercourse can cease. Either way much has been gained.

No lives were lost hut many passengers injured. Reasons Why Mexican Is at War With Madero. Was Victim of the Diaz Tyranny Became Agitator When His Prop erty Was Confiscated and He Had to Labor as Peon. Cuernarvaca , Mex. "Zapata , the bandit , " "Zapata , the liberator" these are the two public estimates placed upon the man who for more than a year .has been carrying on a continuous warfare against the con stituted government in this part of southern Mexico. It Is distinctly a war of the classes. "The Tiger of Ayala , " as Zapata Is called by his hundreds of admiring followers , claims to be fighting for the freedom ot the peon element and the small property holders , who he declares have long suffered from the 'tyrannical ' acts and policies of the government. He also has personal grievances and wrongs which be wants to avenge. Zapata is a product of the Diaz rule. He was one of the victims of 'the ' system that oppressed many ot the lower class all over the country during the Diaz regime. It happened in his case that there existed in him an element of fighting power and re lentless cruelty which marked him for 'the ' leadership of the people who had suffered similar wrongs. lie is now paying the government back tor the injuries it did him. In the days of Diaz men who did not agree with the government were quickly put where they could do no harm. Zapata was arrested and sen tenced to a long term of exile in the hot lands of Quiutana Roo. It was to that remote region that most of the political prisoners were sent. Few ot ithem survived their terms of exile. But Zapata had a constitution of iron. 'Even in the distressing circumstances under which he then labored he planned the vengeance that he has been inflicting on his oppressors for the last twelve months. He lived through his term of exile and returned to his home in Ayala. The years went by slowly and Zapata quietly fomented a spirit of retaliation against the government among the people of his class. This was before .Madero started his revolution , and it is now known that even had the lat- Hard as Iron Are the Timbers of Brit ish Frigate Despite Its Ags. New York. Oaken timbers from the old British warship , the Daedalus , have been brought to New York and are being converted into paneling for .the interior of the new home of Steph en Carlton Clark at No. 42 East Sev entieth street. Though the vessel was built in 1769 and was In commission until two years ago , the timbers are sound , and "hard as iron. " < > At Eckeworth & Sons' yard at Fifth and Lewis streets , where the parts of the hull were taken from the Atlantic transport liner Mesaba , it was found necessary to invent a spe cial machine to pull the wrought iron spikes from the wood. In the parts of the keelson the bolts were one and a quarter inches in circumference. The timbers are being turned into paneling at Sherwin & Berman's in East One Hundred and Thirty-seventh Street. The work will require four months. The old oak panels will be stained dark brown and will be given a dull finish. They will be put in the halls , stairs , library and dining room of the Clark residence , under the di rection of Architect Sterner. There is to be a "gunboat room , " decorated , jit Is said , with some of the bolts and nails of the Daedalus. Stephen Carlton Clark is a son of Alfred Corning Clark , whose widow became the second wife of Bishop Henry C. Potter. He Is a grandson of Edward Clark , a partner of Isaac Sing er In the sewing machine business. ter not inaugurated his revolt against the Diaz government Zapata would have soon started one ot his own. Zapata did not quit lighting when the peace compact was signed be tween Madero and the Diaz govern ment. He had wrongs still to avenge , and the petty municipal and district officers who had carried out the or ders of the government were the spe cial objects of his vengeance. He and his men have shown special hatred and cruelty toward the land owners who dispossessed them of their small farms. Emiliano Zapata Is the hero of the common people , not only of the states that are now in actual revolt , but of all portions of the country. The seeds of revolt that have been sown by Zapata are likely to continue to bear fruit for years to come , unless the government is able quickly to grant the demands of the lower class tor a division among them of the vast es tates which have for the most part been established by the merging ot small properties taken either by force or by semblance of law. Zapata is a man of fine physique. He was married only a few months ago to a pretty mountain girl , and she has been his constant companion ever since. Young Clark in 1909 married Miss Su san V. Hun , a daughter of Marcus Hun of Albany , and he has a large fortune. His family owns much land in the upper West side. He is now in Eu rope. His country home is at Coopers- town , N. Y. , where he was elected to the assembly. GIVES $5OGO TO GREET BIRDS Anonymous Donor Contributes to Audubon - dubon Societies' Fund to Encour age Children's Care. New York. Five thousand dollars was given to the National Association of Audubon Societies to encourage school children to welcome the birds in the eastern and middle western sec tions of the United States. The donor , who prefers that his name be kept secret , Is following the example of Mrs- Russell Sage , who Is giving $5,000 a year to the same soci ety , to be used in promoting the study of the feathered wanderers of the air In the south. It was announced at the offices of the association that work would be be gun at once. The idea will be carried along In this part of the country on somewhat different line than in the south. In the winter the children of the east and middle west will be en couraged to put out boxes for the shel ter of birds and to place food for them on the window sills of their homes. With the coming of spring , Instruc tion Is to be given as to the northward HIRES HUSBAND FROM JAIL Asheville ( N. C. ) Woman Purchases Convicted Spouse's Services for § 5QO a Month. Asheville , N. C. Placing a much higher value on his services than any one else , Mrs. P. II. Trash hired her husband from the board of county commissioners for one month for § 500 , strictly cash in advance. Trash , a man worth' $50,000 and well connected , had been found guilty of keeping liquor to sell to retailers in his prohibition section and sen tenced by Judge Long in superior court to pay a fine of $2,000 , costs amounting to $400 , and to be impris oned in jail thirty days ; but upon the tearful petition of the wife the judge stipulated that if the county commissioners chose to do so they might hire the defendant for hid trrm to the highest bidder , but not less than $300. The board decided to take the money and in default of other bids the defendant was struck oft to the wife for $500 , which she promptly pa.'d. Cat Cauces Big Fire. South Norwalk , Conn.

Government SendD $1.77 to lYHnne- sotan Due Him Since Days of the Civil War. St. Paul , Minn. Another proof that Uncle Sam is honest and will pay his debts as soon as he can is on exhibi tion at the office of Julius Schmahl , secretary of state , at the capitol. It is a check for $1.77 , which was re ceived by Charles A. Rose , document clerk. Uncle Sam has been owing Mr. Rose this money since 18G3 and at last has got enough ahead to pay the debt. In 1863 Mr. Rose was transferred from one company of vol unteers to another and at the time of this transfer there was due him $1.77. The amount was never paid and Mr. Rose had even forgotten that he had it coming until the check ar rived yesterday. Warren , Pa. Hiram Towsiey , of Garfield , near here , has received a check from the United States govern ment for $105 , which was the balance due him in prize money for services rendered in , tre Civil war. Mr. Towsiey was one of the crew of the gunboat Connecticut. For valuable cargo captured his share amounted to $2,400 , of which. $105 had not been paid , ouing to an oversight. CORN GROWS IN APPENDIX Strange Conditions Found in Human Body by Doctors Operating on a Farmer. Lawrence , Ind. Three grains of corn that had begun to sprout were found in the appendix of James B. Powell , a wealthy farmer , when he J was operated upon for acute appendi ! i citis. The appendix was 11 inches | long. Powell had a habit , he said. I of eating a few grains of corn-every j time he fed his stock. I migration of the flying hosts. The association - j sociation will expend the fund in send- j | ig out plates , color prints and descrlp- j I tions of the common varieties of birds , i ' directions for feeding them and how | to place material at hand which they , may use in the building of nests. Two field agents will also give lectures. The giver of the fund is believed to be a prominent citizen of Massachu setts , who was asked a few days ago , i while in this city , if he knew of any- j I body who might contribute money to start this new kind of bird study. Hot j sent a check signed by himself , with a I < letter , stating that the donor did not j wish to have any public mention of his name. SETS GOLD WALL IN ARTERY New York Surgeon Astounds His Colleagues by Unusual Operation. New York. An assemblage of physicians and surgeons , many of them from other cities , was held spellbound by an operation perform ed by Dr. William C. Luslc A new interior wall of gold wire was sup plied for a distended aorta , the prin cipal wall had been torn to such a thinness that it threatened to burst at each beat of $ e heart. It was necessary to perform the operation to pierce the wall of this artery. Had the worn walls ripped or cracked un der the pulsations of the heart while the operation was in progress , the pa tient's death would have been a mat ter of moments. Under the condi tions it was necessary to use only lo cal anesthetics , and the patient was conscious throughout. Henry E. Grif- the patient , is 63 years old. State Fair Superintendents.
