RUNNING ANTELOPE'S VIEWS
OF HONESTY OF AGENTS
IN THE spring of 1874. while the
Seventh cavalry wits stationed at
Fort Abraham Lincoln. N. 1)., a band
of IlunlipHpa Sioux from a reservation
near by came to the fort to ask Gen
eral Custer for the food which they
much needed. The steamer bringing
the supplies Issued thein by the In
dian department had been frozen In Ice
In the Missouri river and they had
been compelled to eat their dogs and
ponies to keep from starving
Having decided to n 'd from the
military,"they litvught with them their
greatest orator, Kunning Antelope
O'ahincasula Inyauke), a line-looking,
dlgniUed old warrior, to present their
OS use. Kunnlug Antelope described at
letigth the distressing condition of the
tribe and denounced their agent, ac
cusing all agctits of dftbonesty.
At tlds polu't General Custer Inter
rupted and asked the Interpreter to

selected ouly good men for agent* tie

ulug Antelope he smiled grimly and,
through the Interpreter, replied : "Well,
they may In- good nieu when they leave
the Great Kuther, hut they get to be

After the council was over, General
Custer Invited Kunning Antelo[>e and

quarters for it feast. Dignified and lui
presslve us the old chief was while
speaking In a council, lie was not so

gorging himself on everything In sight,
he emptied the plates and swept the
remains of the feast from the very
noses of ills headmen, Into the folds
of his robe. Tlieu he belted It at Ills
waist,., making a capacious haversack,
grunted his appreciation of tlie hos
pitality and stalked from the room.

learned table manners (according to
white men's lights) In the tepees of
his fathers, he was a first class light

PATRONS OF STORES
SHOULD FOLLOW RULE
Now tha tthe stores of the city
close each afternoon at 6 o'clock ex
cept Saturdays, purchasers should
make it a point to do their trading
before this hour (six o'clock). Dy
doing this you give the clerks and
employes a chanee to leave the storf
on time and not compel them to re
main as much as a half hour longer.
Some shoppers wait until just before
closing time to enter the stores, which
necessitates teh clerks having to re
main after six o'clock. Purchasers
ean do their trading before six just
as easy as they can when the stores
are ready to close. It works a hard-,
ship that could be avoided easily and
no on* would sue* rthereby.

musical and the children had boon

FOK THE KADIO FAN
The part, that the grid plays in the
operation of the auction or vacuum
tube in common use on radio receiv
ers is most interesting This is the
electrode that delivers the pulsations
of the rudio waves which are received
hy the antennae, to the "II" batery
circuit. The current from the "11"
battery passes between filament ami
plate through the grid itself.
,The grid adds to or subtracts from
tlie (low of electrons moving the
filament to the plate, and thus affects
the phones on the "B" battery ciiw
cuit so that he phone diaphrams giw
he corresponding signals to tlw'se re
ceived by the aenai circuit. ?
"All other things being satisfactory
says Mr. S. E. Ieonard, ltadio Kngi-,
neer of the Willard Stbrage Battery
Company, "much depends upon the
type of "II" battery used. The new
Willard ltadio "B" storage battery
has met a most flatering reception
and has answered a ong-felt want a
mong radio operators for a quiet and
effcient "B' battery.'
TIIKEE KINDS OF PEOPLE
There seem* to tie three kinds o'
people iri the world.
. First, those fellows who arc willing
to contribute something', who are try
ing to give the world more than they
get, who are always trying to help
others in some way. It may be in
dividually or it may be generally
Such people are called good citizen*
Second, those people who are will
ing to give just as much as they re
ceive. They never do more than makf
an even swap. Such people leave tht
world just as they found it. No bet
ter nor no worse, these people arr
graded as fair citizens.
The third claßs are those who ar*
always trying to take more out of tiw
world than they put In it. They art
the fellows who are always milking
but never feeding, always eating but

NO NEW EXPEIMENT
SAYS AARON SAPIRO
(Ertracts from Aaron Sapiro'a recent
speeches in North Carolina.)
Cooperative Marketing is real;
there is nothing new in it and there
is nothing complex io it, and there
is nothing hidden in it. It is an old,
old movement. It is more than three
generations old in every civilized coun
try in Europe.
It just so happens that this one
particular thing the United States is
the one country that has been back
ward in cooperation, and even im this
country we haw had it in California
Now ourfarmers out there actually
market more than three million dol
lars worth of products every single
year through this cooperative market
ing; they market perishable and nou
, perishable things—they range ail the
way from strawberries to baled alfal
l'a, from oranges to bottled honey.
This movement is here all over the
tinted States with all kinds of com
modities; there is not a word of ex
periment in it.
In California alone those fanifers
have laced practically every kind of
problem that a farmer can fee in
m ike ting lus products and they have
solved them every one.
