This has made the dairyman ; but it is no more marked than the rela- progress for three years, and the formal announcement of its results may be expected soon. The early researches pertained to the weed itself the white loco, which stockmen call the "rattle weed." The poisonous principle was separated and studied. Then a study was made of animals afflicted with the poison. The third step was to conduct experiments with a view to discovering a remedy. Wisconsin peo- sell off most of his stock. A third cause can be ascribed to this, that the west- pie will be interested to know that this ) era dairymen seize hold of other enter important work was entrusted to a well known former Wisconsin man, Dr. C. D. Marsh, for many years professor of biology at Papon College. A Colorado newspaper, stating what Dr. Marsh has accomplished, in the search for curative agents and methods, says: Dr. Marsh has been experimenting with a number of locoed cattle, horses and sheep, at the station at Hugo with remarkable results. Heretofore a locoed animal was considered worthless, but Dr. Marsh has succeeded in effecting a complete cure in a number of cases, to the great surprise of the stockmen near Hugo. Horses not worth a dime were renovated and turned out as good as new. Cattle were also treated with such success that they are now fat enough for beef and with no signs of loco. The Doctor has had marked success in curing horses and cattle, but so far has not found a method for sheep that is commercially practicable. He is engaged in the preparation of a bulletin setting forth his discoveries, which "will be is sued during the coming winter. It is his belief that the work to be done is not yet finished, and he hopes it will be continued. There are other loco plants, he says, and while he thinks the poison is the same in all of them,, he is not sure. All of these plants, he believes, might profitably be subjected to systematic investigation such as has been given to the white loco. The Bureau of Plant Industry and the Bureau of Animal Industry represent in achievement as well as in purpose an important whereby it carries on for the benefit of the community a useful work that in prises in which there is more money, and it is as his wife says : "The old man call it "luck."

NOVEMBER WILL BE STORMUAYS HICKS WEATHER PROPHET SAYS NEXT MONTH WILL CLOSE IN RAIN STORMS Rev. Ill R. Hicks says a regular storm period, which is central on October 31, will have its culmination stages on and touching the 2nd and 3rd of November. General autumnal rain storms with touches of lightning and thunder to tho southward, will center on the 3rd. A reactionary storm period is central ( on the oth, 6th and 7th. . Rains will turn to sleet and snow, generally, to. the northward. A mill built entirely of steel and concrete, without a piece of wood to en able fire to snread. containing five m.i Better methods ate gradually gaining J chines, two of which are 153 inches wide and running 4S0 feet a minute. Such is the wonderful plant of the Willamette Pulp & Paper company which was recently visited by John Dreyer at Ore- go City. The plant has a capacity of 200 tons daily. Mr. Dreyer said in speaking of the mill that for anyone interested in the paper industry the mill was a marvel to look at, both inside and out.. From the distance it looms up like a building of white marble, resembling some of the World's fair -structures. The interior is equipped with everything that is the very latest in the manufacture of paper. A net work of steel cover the machine with chain blocks and running gears so that any part of the machine can be picked up. Hydraulic lifts are attached to the calenders, holes in the floor enable the broke and shavings to disappear as fast as they appear. With the exception of the machines being run with steam power, there is sufficient water power to run the entire plant. The fuel used for the boilers is oil which is brought from California by boat. It is both cleaner and cheaper than coal. The smoke appears like steam and leaves no smut or cinders, such as lAppletonians have to contend with. For three weeks in September, during the hop season, the labor question at the mills is a serious, question, often compelling part of the. plants to shut down in Oregon. The hop picking is looked forward to as an annual outing. The men earn as high as $4.50 a day, are furnished ' with tents and fruit. The men draw their pay, leave the mills and remain away in the hop fields for three weeks. Thev then return, walk into the mill and resume their work without saying anything to anyone, just as though nothing had happened. Often times, said Mr. Dreyer, the time keep er is not aware that they have returned and taken up their work. The hop pickers are not limited to mill men . People in Portland wait for the event. Signs are displayed weeks ahead, "Wait for the hop picking. Big dancing pavilion. Free music. Free tents." Every attraction is offered to have them give up everything else for the crops. They work, dance and enjoy themselves. Farmers drive' their cows into the hop vicinity where they graze on grass which has not been touched all summer. Houses built in the stumps of trees are also a novelty which Mr. Dreyer witnessed.

There is but one thing which can be obtained as a result of the. irame ami o that is to see what kino" of spirit then- is at Lawrence if any. If the students will meet a defeated team on its return home and show the proper spirit, then it possible to pull the eleven together so that it will still capture the state honors. At the present time there is more resting on the student body than on the eleven as to whether or not Ripon will go down in defeat here next month. The defeat in North Dakota has nothing to do with Wisconsin's record. The next game on the Lawrence schedule is a week from next Saturday vrith Marquette. No game will be played next Saturday and the long rest should enable every player to get into condition for the biggest struggle of the year, that with the Catholics.- A letter report states that four of the regular players, including Ilinderman, were out of the game on account of injuries received in tire Hamline game Saturday.'

TEAM EAGER EOR RfMAlHIHCi GAMES SCHEDULE FOR HIGH SCHOOL FOOT BALL TEAMTHREE OF SIX GAMES AT HOME "PANIC IMPOSSIBLE" WILLIAM J, BRYAN New York, Oct. 21. "There can be no general panic in the United States at this time as long as the high price , of . foodstuffs and labor are maintained; despite the existence of fictitious values and artificial conditions in Wall street." said William J. Bryan here today. "There are any number of men engaged in large business enterprises, who are experiencing embarrassment by reason of disclosures of improper conduct, but this will not lead to a'panic.

The victory of the Appleton high school foot ball team over the Fond du Lac team last Saturday has made the boys confident and they are eager for the other games in the schedule, being sure that they will win most of them and make a good showing in all. Manager Reeve Adams gives the remainder of the schedule as follows : October 26 East Green Bay high school at Green Bay. November 2 Oshkosh high school here. November 16 Lawrence second team here. November 23 Fond du Lac at Fond du Lac. November 28 Thanksgiving day, open date. AH the games will be strong ones. There is no doubt, but that a game will be secured for November 2. especially since the team's victory on Saturday. November 16 when the eleven will play the Lawrence university second team, the first team of the university will play Ripon and the day will be the biggest of the season for foot ball enthusiasts. There is some question as to whether the game with Fond du Lae will be played on Saturday, November 23, or on Thanksgiving day, the following Thursday, November 28. An effort will be made to fill both of the open dates and one of them with a home game, so that . one-half of the six games still to be played will be on the local team's gridiron. (COMMUNICATION) De Pere, Oct. 21, 1907. Editor of Appleton Crescent: My attention has been called to an article in a recent issue of your paper in which my name was connected with a' company of Green Bay parties and Dennison Wheelock in getting options on Indian lands. I will make my position clear hi the matter. I am not in anv company nor have I any agent. " My son a?lp me in my real estate business. I bid in the open market for pieco. of land that are put up for sale and pay cash for all I buy. I have taken but two mortgages on small tracts of !and-I resold to Indians, and right heri I wish to make this statement : I have been in the real estate and loan busines for twenty-five years and have never yet foreclosed a mortgage. - The st liing or trading of horses, cows, guns and blankets is done largely by residents of your own county, . I presume there are instances o.f drunken Indians trading their lands for less than they are worth, but the fact remains that not one-fourth of the lafld put up for sale has been sold, this is proof that it is not being sold under it4-true value. The-Indian who will mortgage his land for a saloon bill or old horses will probably never pay and eventually loose it. The reservation contains about 65,000 acres with about 5,000 acres under cultivation or in user and as far as Iknow none of this has has been sold or offered for sale. The lands sold are mostly small tracts be longing to deceased Indians of no vse to the heirs and others and miles away from the owners and alLof it unimproved. If by paying cash and combining these small tracts and selling to men who will clear, fence? make farms and open roads is an injury to the Onei Ja?. then I plead gnifly, but I object to biing classed with those who trade wo-th-lcss things to them to acquire their land by mortgage. I will further state that I will sell all the land I own in Outagamie county for what it cost me plus the regular commission of 5 per cent and interest on my money since 1 purchased. Trusting you will give this the same publicity you gave the misleading article, I am, respectfully yours, . C. G.
