The league I* an Impor tant factor In Iltlnol* politic* and lie annuel gatherings never fall to at tract many leaders of lb* republican party from every part of th* state. More than six hundred were In at tendance when the gathering was called to order this morning. The. Ini tial session waa devoted largely to routine business. Most Interest cen tered In Jbe annual banquet tonight, which has as speakers Governor Den- een of Illinois. Governor Eberhart of Minnesota, Congressman John A. Sterling, President Theodore Kemp of Illinois Wesleyan University, and President Gustav Andreen of Angus- tana College. producing the following article from tie- pen of Mrs. L. L. Upson regarding a great poultry show for Athens to be held the coming fall: Mrs. Upson Writes: la the fall of 1910, a visit to several of the leading Poultry Shows of the South, gave me much Insight into the tremendous work these poultry aaso- cltaons accomplish, and believing that those Interested locally could make a great success in this line, I have writ ten, upon request, a few advantages to be gained from such an association, and such a show. In the first place, our immediate section is rapidly awakening to the progress made In poultry lines—and there are many specialists of different breeds right In our midst, who hold the honors and ribbons from the shows throughout the south. These "chicken lovers'’ would become the backbone of such an association, for they ore not faddists, and hare—for some years—quietly pursued the "even tenor of their way,” mating their birds scientifically each season for best re sults and with best foundation to be had, In stock or eggs, several people right In Athens have now, and others will have another season, exhibition birds In their own yawls, that have never been shown. There Is a great satisfaction In knowing we have something nice In the poultry line. If our talents run that way for a little venture, or if one desires to make a profitable liv ing from the, work. A great many retired bankers, physicians and men who have been closely confined in their work, have established large poultry estates and arc giving their time, brains and wealth to the rearing of beautiful fowls, in the suburbs of their respect ive cities. I could not count the prom inent women of the north and south who have undertaken some venture of this kind—some for recreation, oth ers for the financial view, a number In search of lost health. At the great Chicago Poultry show this winter. Countess Van Schelle was presented nml exhibited her Belgium Camplnes and feather-legged Malines, the latter, she claims, mature In 30 weeks.. Her foreign speaking attendants had charge of her display of Bantams. And so. these day s one meets many "nota bles," as well as men and women of prominence in wealth, business and so- lal circles. In the show room. A very successful poultry enthu siast. a Southern woman, writes of her beautiful birds, “I was ever lover of soft winged things," and she wins cups, money, ribbons, with her pels. One cannot succeed with birds without making friends with them, and an rosy way to begin the taming process Is to handle them at their lunch” hour, stroking them gently when on nests and very soon the bold est will eat grain from your hand, and they will flock, with one accord, to the yard gates, when the voice of the owner is heard in the distance. In such way, we begin to get them In line, for the shows, where a great, magnificent bird worthy of a first prize, has lost the ribbon to one not so good, because the judge was not uble to take him from his coop and handle him—his fright, ugly temper, t) cn , f or , llc j, work. The train around forever losing him the coveted prize. state has created much good, and Now, In order to have a poultry > the poultry exhibit with the professors show in Athens next fall or winter, jj; charge has had much praise for we must have an Athens Poultry As- their management.

So. we can help one another poultry bredere, not only In Athens, ; n many ways, but over the state, to become mem-l bers of the associtaion, paying mem- Among those having full-blooded bership dues, which in a great degree, birds of high class quality In their finances the show-for there is quite J >ards and who w ill have the comlnz a little expense attached to the ex- season are' tary, upon application for entry blanks. The services of a competent judge or Judges must be secured. E: penses paid and a sum per day for judging. There arv some very noted and highly esteemed judges in our own southland, and the "big shows" usually have two or three of these gentlemen, for If the birds are many the burdens fall heavily on one man. Bo. if we have dne or more judges the business arrangements must be made some months in advance these gentlemen are In great demand and to watt late, we would probably have to be content with one of the "lesser lights." To secure the expert knowledge of poultry, in the placing of ribbons, by Judge Lorlng Brown, of Smyrna, Ga„ or others as well known, we would indeed be fortunate, Among the prominent northern judges are, Judge Theo Wlttman, famous the whole country for his expert Judging of Leghorns and Orpingtons. He is connected with the poultry depart ment of one of the Pennsylvania col leges. Judge Devenstedt N who Is a Wyin- dotte and Orpington specialist, has Just finished books on these two breeds, which are considered real stan dards. Mr. P. A. Cook, head of the firm of Wm. T. Cook & Sons, ot. inatorg of all the Orpingtons. When not exhlhlilng their own birds, he Judges In Bermu da, Europe and U. S.

We must leave the expensive cups, the money prizes and other good things, to the Interested In dlvlduals or friends of Use association. Athens Is so conveniently situated that birds will he shipped to the show from Commerce, Gainesville. Madison. Atlanta, and. In fact, not only the nearby points, but. with proper "boost ing.” breeders from tile state at large will send in their birds, thus making competition keen, and many of these breeders will visit the show with their birds, to display their stock, and the fancier will find It a great pleasure to meet and know such breeders, who are always ready to give advice on many points. A great many people will flock Into Athens from nearby places during the annual exhibit of the Ladies’ Garden Club, and should we have the poultry show at the same time, the visitors would have a two-fold Interest while in the city.

New Orleans, March 9.—The Times Democrat this morning eays; Either government regulation! or ex tinction. according to F. L. Maxwell, who Is one of the lurgest cotton pro ducers in the south, Is the arbitrary prospect before the future cotton trading exchanges. Mr. Maxwell op poses legislation of the Scott anti future trading type which he says would rob him and all other cotton producers and cotton handler! of the important benefits that accrue from the buying and selling of future hedges, but he emphatically believe* In practical regulation of the changes by the federal government. Such regulation, he thinks, is due the farmer, the merchant and the con sumer, and may be obtained In a man ner that will help, not harm, the cot ten Industry In any way, Mr. Maxwell raises somewhere be tween 2.100 and 3,000 bales a year on his model plantation at Mound, La, He Is a modern farmer and alway* takes a leading part In movement! having as their object the betterment of farming conditions. "In my opinion,” said he yesterday, "the United States Bureau of Corpora tions and Labor should be empowered by congress to prescribe the form of contract under which the future trad ing of the exchanges is to be carried on. Recently that bureau spent two years In Intelligent investigation ot the cotton market, and in the report issued by Commissioner Herbert Knox Smith outlined the correct prin ciple that should underlie all con tract trading. This principle is noth ing more nor leas than that of com mon fairness. The suggestions made by Mr. Smith were in effect that th« buyer and the seller of all exchange contracts be given equal righlj and privileges, that none other than com mercial cotton be deliverable, that the grade differences above and below middling at which cotton la delivered on contract be tbe natural or’ spot market differences, and that no arti ficial conditions that tell against eith er buyer or seller be permitted to ex ist. He also recommended the adop tion by all exchanges of the govern ment's standard types. “Were all tbe exchanges compelled to adopt the suggestions made by Commissioner Smith the cotton far mer would get all that is coming to him; the producer, merchant and con sumer would continue to enjoy the benefits of ffhe Immensely hedging system, the wing* of tbe speculator would be clipped in a practical and lasting way, and the antagonism the farmer has been showing toward cot ton exchanges In general would soon he a thing of the past. “Were congress to pass a law giv ing supervisory powers to the Bureau of Coroporatlons that bureau would quickly correct all the errors that re main without hurting any of tbe real ly good phases of the modern market. But should congress pass a bill almt- lar to the Scott bill the cotton mar- ket would be thrown all out of Joint, and the result would be control by a few rich and powerful merchants In the same way the tobacco and sugar markets are now controlled, in such event the producers could sell only to a few more or less non-competitlvs buyers who would then dominate the market, In place of the many com petitive buyers, each bidding against the other, as Is now the case.” try Ptruna, and after using four bot tles can vay I was entirely cured.” Unabl* to Work. Mr. Ouotav Himmelrelch, Hochhelm, Texas, writes; "For a number of years I suffered whenever I took cold, with severe at tacks of asthma, which usually yielded to the common home remedies. "lost year, however, I suffered for eight months without Interruption so that I could not do any work at all. The various medicines that were pre scribed brought me no relief. "After taking six bottles of Peruns, two of Lacupla and two of Manalln, I am fra* of my trouble so that 1 can do all my farm work again. I can heart ily recommend this medicine -to any one who suffers with this annoying complaint and believe that they will obtain good results."
