NOTED CASE NOW
ftrei the court
Concerns Manufacture War
CunnliAo frw tla
Milwaukee, Wis., May IS The
bearing set for touuerow in the- Cir
cuit Court, at which General Samuel
Pearson will be required to show
ease why his action against the Alhs-
( "haluu-rs Comimnv in connection wit h
the alleged manufacture of shrapnel
shells fer the Allies, should not be
permanently stayechwd dismissed, is
expected to develop an interesting
story from the former Boer general.
The fi'ing of the complaint by Gen
eral Pearson under the Wisconsin
"discovery" statute created a stir a
few weeks' ago,' for it sought toforce
the officials of the Allis-C 'h aimers
Company to disclose its business rela
tions with others for the manufacture
of war munitions. The answer of the
company was mat rearson noi oc-
ing a stockholder, had no right to in
quire into the company's business.
The general is said to have arrived
recently from Europe. His friends at
Allentown, Pa., where he long made
his home after the Boer War, believe
that he went to Germany and capital
ized his professional baiting of Eng
land to get backing for a campaign
in America. He is said to have re
marked t hat he "had a rod in pickle"
for President Wilson, for the Presi-
font's" stand on neutrality, and would
embarras ihe administration if he
Lond In Limelight
Pearson has been in the limelight
for many years. He reached America
as a Boer war hero, oppressed, hunt-
d and spied upon the Brtish Gov
ernment, because, h sa:d, he had re
fused to take the oath of alltigiance
to the crown. He claimed he had
bee n a millionaire i n South Africa
He claimed England hud set a price
upon his head, after telling the King
in Windsor Castle what he thought
of him. How he escaped from the
English court he never esplained, and

raid , he began to talk of big coloni
zation scheme. He actually managed
to see J. Pierpont Morgan and put
the plan before him. Morgan received
a generous denunciation when lunde
elined to finance the enterprise. 'A
few Allentown friends put up some
money for investigation purposes, and
the general bestowed imagiuary mil
lions upon them. Then the general
claimed a rubber concession of teh
million acres in Brazil, and planned
to send a party of Allentown friends
to England to sell the rubber stock
and float the enterprise.
Accused Knox of Conspiracy
Suddenly, however, the general an
nounced in wrath and indignation that
the South American enterprises were
impossible to fulfill on account of the
opposition of Secretary of State Knox,
whom he accused of doep eonspiracy
to ruin him, under the inspiration of
King Edward. Pearson dubbed Knox
a "dollar diplomat" and got consid
erable publicity at the ti me.
Later on, the general sprung a plan
to dig up all of Lehigh County for
gold. He explained that there was
undoubtedly more gold in the region
than was necessary to make million
aires of its residents, and all that was
needed was to secure the proper ma
chinery to extract the gold. ' He
then tried to float a company to make
the machinery. But nobody would
put any money into it, and the gen
eral, in great digust, left Pennsylvania
Dutch for real Dutch. From Hol
land word camo that he was ex
ploiting a proposed railroad i n Jav.
The comic opera stunts of the gen
eral were quite forgotten when he
appeared a few mouths ago in Amer
ica and sprung his suit in tho Wis
consin courts. The general always
wears tho khaki uniform of the mili
tary and bis appearaneo is expected
to be dramatic.

An official statement issued today
admits that Austro-German columns

It is contended, however, that at

assaults along the Pruth.
The communication follows:
"Since the morning of the 16th
in the Shavli region the battles have

T. E. Browne
It has been demonstrated that eeea

plishments of the Cora Clab work,
and the possibilities of its fature.
There is valuable inforssatiaa ia
this article and should be read by
every person whose oewupatiea is
cultivating the soil.
"One of the first and moat prossi
iii ni results obtained, along with lb a
work in other southern States, was the
demonstrating to the world the woadr
erful corn growing possibilities ef
Southern soils. Until the members ef
the Corn Clubs began to ttow the
enormous yields of 200 bufBear aaie
more of corn to the acre, and to grow
it cheaply, other parts of' the ooaa
try had not thought of the South as
a corn section. So it remained for the
boys between the ages of em aaa
eighteen years to prove tbatM
corn belt of the natioa Jm
South, and it is only a questi
few years now. since we bavs t
aroused to our possibilitie
the South will be growing all ih4Mfk
it needs. - ijyHBirf -
"The Corn Clubs hare f urnished ea

they have been averaging froi
eight to sixty-five bushels of eera per
acre, at a cost of from thirty-tye ta
forty-five cents per bushel. Ta av
erage yield for the State has base
about eighteen bushels per aere dur
ing the same time.
"The Clubs also furnish aa easy aaa
waUieaI means of, eon nesting -TtjHf
rural senooi wim. ine lives or iae
pupils, and of clinching the lessees ea
agriculture as taught in ths ael
room, by having the children put these
principles into practice upon their eaa
tests plats. Whenever the boy or girl .
is shown the practical, economic value
of their school work, they at race be
come more interested. A.. JasMnte '
"As an adjunct to the Cera Clab
work, and for the purpose of feaeh
iug them simple lessons in animal ia
difstry, the Pig and Poultry Clubs
have been recently added to the Club
movement. By means of these. elu be
the boys and girls are taught the vadue
of feeding their corn en f hj fgfe jat
order to get a double value, and. are
taught the important plaee of lira
stock farming in all successful agri
culture. v . '.a:
"The Pig and Poultry work has a
further advantage ia that children
naturally like to deal with liviag
things, they like animals, and by gat
ting them into these clubs and teach
ing them how to attend to their awa
pigs and chickens, they develop a ten
der sympathy and consideration for
animal life, a characteristic that ia ia
valuable in their dealings with their
fellow man in after life.
"We find that these elubs developia
the child self-reliance and initiative, a
disposition to take what he has and
make the most of it. Hundreds ef
boys who have gone into theee clubs
and learned the value of intelligence
applied to agriculture, have become ia
t crested in the farm; have determined
to attend the Agriculture and Me
chanical College, and learn more of
the science of the soil, and having
caught the vision, are preparing them
selves for a large usefulness, either as
teacher of their fellows in some agri
