Two of our farmer friends dealt with the same mer-
chant. The merchant was honest but a poor book
keeper. One of our farmer friends always prided
himself upon paying hip bills with cash. The other
kept his money in our bank and paid by check. The
result? Easy enough. If the careless merchant pre-
sented a bill a second time to the one who had cancell-
ed check as a recaipt, he had the merchant convinced
at once, while the one who paid cash had to scratch
his head and worry about it and sometimes thought
he had paid twice. IT PAYS TO PAY BY CHECK.
is a heavy
sheet metal chain, varying in width
from ten inches to two feet according
to the weight of the engine, which
passes around two heavy sprocket
wheels like a belt. These wheels re-
volving, pass the chain about them,
(.he lower part moving backward, with;
the weight of the engine resting on
the broad surface of the chain be-
tween the two sprockets.
An engine of this type can be op-
erated on ground soft enough to mire
an ordinary farm wagon.

Duplicate of the Roosevelt African
A duplicate of the shotgun which
Col. Theodore Roosevelt took with him
on his African trip, a gun constructed
expressly for him by an American
armorer, is on display at the manufac-
turer's exhibit in the Manufacturer's
Palace at the Panama-Pacific Interna-
tional Exposition, San Francisco. The
gun cost its illustrious owner $360,
and its beautiful design, graceful
lines and wonderful inlay work would
justify the expenditure to any lover
of fine pieces. The stock is elabo-
rately hand carved, the barrels and:
lock are hand engraved, and the lock
is inlaid with a hunting scene in gold.
The barrels are of the finest Krupp
steel. Before starting on the trip the
ex-president wrote to the makers: "I
realty think it 1b the most beautiful
gun I have ever seen. 1 am almost
ashamed to take it to Africa and sub-
ject it to the rough treatment it will
The left barrel is choked and the
right open. It is cored to shoot either:
buckshot or a single ball. 1
In a group in this Palace are dis-
plays by four of the world's greatest
manufacturers of sporting arms, which
form an exhibit which attracts hun-1
dreds of sportsmen. Each display is
in charge of a firearms' expert.
Pearl Culture a New Industry.
Among the interesting exhibits of
the Japanese in the Manufacturers'
Palace at the Panama-Pacific Interna-
tional Exposition is a demonstration,
of the methods and results of pearl
cultivation in the far East. The dis-
plays of this cultivated product, show-,
ing hundreds of pearls which until
pearl culture was placed on a com-
mercial basis a few years ago would
have been the possessions of royalty,,
will delight any lover of beautiful
gems, and the methods of production
will prove interesting to any ob-
server. Though pearl culture has be-
come a thriving industry in Japan, at-
tempts to reproduce it in other parts
of the world have yielded but meager
The successful method of propaga-
tion was evolved by the Japanese sci-
entist Kokichi Mikimoto, who discov-
ered a species of oyster which pro-
duced the pearl on the surface of the
shell. Though the finding of the oys-
ters and inserting the nuclei, then
waiting for the pearl to grow to a
commercial size may seem a simple
process, the fact that it has not re-
duced the price ot the gems, even to
that of the most expensive imitations,
shows that it is beset with many diffi-

Daniel Webster's Plow at the Panama-
Pacific International Exposition,
One of the most valuable exhibits
commercially, in the Agricultural Pal-
ace at the Panama-Pacific Interna-
tional Exposition. San Francisco, is
an ancient plow displayed in the
Massachusetts exhibit, and forming a
striking contrast to the highly-com-
plex modern machinery displayed on
the acreage of floor about it.
The plow owes its distinction to
the circumstance that a hundred years
ago Daniel Webster's youthful hands
guided it along the furrows of his
father's farm near Marshfield. Mass.
It was drawn by a yoke of oxen and
if the fusure peer ot American ora-
tors and statesmen could turn an acre

so. They will spend a month there
visiting Mr. Nelson's relatives. The
