MANUAL LABOR A RELIGION Declared Enemies of Destruction of Property, Human or Animal Life, and Oppose Soviet Government. Yasnaya Polyana. Russia. Fifteen young men. two young women and an elderly matron have recently established on the Tolstoy estate what they term "nn Improved bolshevik community." Described as an attempt to rectify failure of communism, the members of the colony are the declared enemies of the destruction of projerty, human or animal life, and thus are arrayed against the soviet government. The members of the colony make a religion of manual labor and declare its chief tenet to be embodied in the phrase "Love thy neighbor as thyself." They declare themselves, like Count Tolstoy, "searchers for the truth in all things." They arrived here in early September with a permit from Moscow ' to occuxy a portion of the estate now classed as a national Institution.' Teacher Organizes Movement. A teacher, whose brother is director of the colony, organized the movement. The 18 members, all of whom profess the practical Idealism of the Doukhobors sect, with a mingled belief In Buddhism, were alloted quarters In a once handsome but now tumble-down one-story building of the estate built in 1780 for the serfs of Prince Volkon-skl. father of Tolstoy's mother. The new arrivals have made the building habitable and have started to prepare for the cultivation of the 100 acres included in their grant. Food so far has been supplied free by the soviet government, the same as to all visitors to the Tolstoy home. The three women do the cooking. The correspondent came first in contact with a member of the colony in a rather strange manner. After a long journey, he had been enrolled as a pilgrim at the Tolstoy home, according to the rules of the Institution. He was given a bed In the ground floor room, characterized by a brick arch, a room occupied by Tolstoy-some fifteen years. Just as he was dropping off to sleep he was roused by pleasing chords on the grand piano located in the room. The playing was done by a young man who wore high boots, a belted jacket and a sheepskin cap. Seeing the correspondent, he stopped playing and apologized, saying he didn't know the room was occupied. Then he went on to explain who he was and began to ask Information about the possibility of walking to India, by way of Turkestan. He wanted to study philosophy there, he said. Orchard Trees Whitewashed. The 100-acre farm Includes a big orchard, planted by the famous Russian author, and one of the first acts of the newcomers was to whitewash all the trees. This operation was preceded by an animated discussion as to whether it should be done. The young men carefully debated this problem. If the trees are not whitewashed the orchard will be ruined by Insects, but if the whitewash is applied the Insects will die of starvation and It i," wrong to destroy life. As the members of the colony are vegetarians and fruit Is therefore the prime article of food to them, necessity prevailed over ideals and the whitewashing was done. A second problem was solved much after the same reasoning. For many-years the manager of the Tolstoy estate has been Prince Obolinski, who occupied a building ouce used by the author as a peasants school. The newcomers, declaring that the presence of an overseer might restrict their "liberty of action," have decreed that the prince must go, and the Obolinski family soon must seek food and shelter elsewhere. HER MEALS WIN HER $60,000 Philadelphian'c Will Rewards Cook With Bequest of Money and Automobile. Philadelphia, Pa Her ability to cook has earned Mrs. Anna Souder $60,000 and an automobile. This sura and the motor car were left to her by Harry Joseph, two months old twin son of Thomas M. and Carrie A. Hasty, died Jan. 31, 1902. Funeral services were conducted from the Wesleyan church, Rev. C. S. Smith in charge. Five weeks later Hazel Dena, the twin sister died and was buried beside her brother in Park cemetery. P. A. Hoover, ex-county commissioner, died at Bunker Hill last Fri-day night of stomach disease. S.ome months ago he resigned the office of commissioner on account of failing health, and since that time has gradually declined. Mrs. Anna Miller, daughter of Willis McCoy died last Friday morning after a short illness. A fire alarm this morning sent the boys on a run to the north end of town. The house of Mrs. Bradford had caught fire. Considerable damage was done to the property. The Flora Bowman farm of 100 acres in Liberty township, was lately sold for $6,700. Robert Lindsey reports good indications of oil on his farm a few miles east of Fairmount. In drilling a gas well a small flow of oil accompanied the gas. By drilling deeper into the rock a pood well would be developed. But the drillers were not after oil. Mrs. S. M. Latham has sold the two story brick building and lot on the west side of Main street to F. O. Gephart of Marion. Consideration $4,000. 4 Miss Effie Small of Earlham college will visit her parents here this week. the will of Samuel W. Ihling, for whom she was housekeeper. After the death of his wife Mr. Ihling frequently came to the Souder home for meals. They appealed to him. Mrs. Souder said, with the result that he Invited her and Mr. Souder to live In his home and keep house for him. Parrot Betrays Master. Seattle. Wash. More trouble for Chris Dahl of Burlen City. And all because of his crested parrot. Sheriff Starwlch and his deputies visited the house when no one was home but the parrot. By his jabberings of "booze" and Its associations the parrot betrayed his master and inspired the officers to search so diligently that they found a barrel of mash under a drain-board. Not content with this discovery, the officers returned to l;ihl"s house ami found a still in the underbrush, they say. Dahl will be charged with manufacturing liquor. Billions Invested in Homes. There are approximately 6.000,000 families In the United States living in their own homes. This represents an aggregate Investment of $30,000,000,-000, since builders and contractors declare that the average American home is valued at $5,000. At 5 per cent the American home owners are therefore paying out about $1,500,000.-000 for the privilege of enjoying life under roofs that belong to them. The 5 per cent will easily take care of repairs, taxes and interest on the Investment. ! His Luck Is Out When f i i i i i i i i i Tadpoles Hatch in Milk Nairobi, Africa.
