now before the Legislature This bill provides that all votes upon the question of prohibiting the sale of intoxicating liquors must be taken the entire county thus preventing the people of any particular precinct or locality having saloons to the entire coun ty In other words a vote to keep saloons out of a town would have to be taken by all the pre cincts in the county thus making the entire county dry That the proposition is a good one all lovers of lawand order will readily agree but the whisky people are fighting it as it means a black eye to their business PINE HILL Sam

cities of the country are now centering their attention upon the Russian play Monna Vanna the title role of which is being essayed by Madame Bertha Kalich a Polish actress who won fame in the Yiddish theatres on the Bowery in New York City Madame Kalich mat not be considered a beautiful woman but through the naturalness of her acting she touches every spark of humanity that glows in the human breast Six years ago she did not know a word of English yet her mastery at the present time of one of spealdngtonguesshe speak English well but she Is fam iliar with five other languagesGer- man Polish Russian French and Yid dish For years she has been acting at the Russian and Hebrew theatres of New York City Her first appearance in an English speaking play was a year or so ago when she played the name part in Fedora Her earlier performances were disappointing but at the end of a fortnight she made a profound impression upon her audience So far this is the story of Monna Vanna for the American people are not ac customed to the mannerisms and act Ing of the Russian plays Madame Bertha Kalich is tall and of the brunette type usual to the Hebrew with eyes that while most expres winningShebut her art has a mimicry which is sure to bring fame to her Critics lay great faith in her possibilities as an actress They believe that after thor stagetheferent from those of the Russian she will become famous for she comes of a race which has achieved wonders And when we encounter marked talent In the Hebrew race no one living can predict how many rungs of the ladder of fame may be traversed successfully The greatest actors not only of the present age but of the past have been and are Jews Of the women we have from Rachel to Bernhardt and the men range from Dawison to Edwin Booth while passing reflections may be given to the ability of David Garrick Mrs Siddons and a host of others in whose veins were some drops of Oriental bloodBertha Kalichs appearance in Chi cago was greeted with an outburst of enthusiasm which continued through out the many weeks of her perform ance there Such a wellknown critic as W H Hubbard of the Chicago Tribune in reviewing Monna Vanna and its leading actress said Madame Kalich is enrolled in the list of great artists She is now an actress of peculiar and uncommonly attractive qualities and gives every promise of becoming in a few seasons one of the most notable women on the American stage Watch- Ing her during the week has brought conviction that she Is the possessor of remarkable talents and that these talents are susceptible of a developing and shaping which can but place her high in the esteem of a large class of the best theatregoera and add an other great artist to the small list of really gifted players that our stage tan boast She has the power indispensable to any artist who is to endure and whose work IB to be of any wide reaching Influence the power to attract the public TRAPPERS PROSPEROUS TIMES Furs Worth More Now Than For Past Thirty Years The many trappers operating along the northern boarder will reap a rich harvest the present winter meaning many comforts even luxuries in the log cabins of scores of sturdy settlers in the wilds of the northern country who are mainly dependent upon their traps during the cold months for a livelihoodThe and professionals in the country directly tributary to the Great Lakes look to mink marten and otter to make their trapping operations profitable and the pelts of these little animals at present command a higher price than at any time during the past thirty years while there has been a decided slump in the prices paid for furs from the black blue and silver fox which bring only x50 each now where a year or two ago they were as high as 300 apiece Last wljter 450 was considered a good price for a mink pelt and it wasnt more than a season or two back that 250 was the highest paid for a single pelt of this kind Now a choice raw mink fur will bring 11 and a mar ten pelt from 18 to 20 where 6 or 7 was paid last winter An otter skin is worth 22 just as it comes from the trappers hands which is away above any price paid for more than thirty years Quite a few fisher are caught through northern Minnesota and these are worth from 8 to 10 Beaver are very scarce in this state They are worth from 7 to 9 each The higher prices paid for furs will also prove a boon to the Minnesota ashavemany of the Indians trap during the majoritylikelytoa11 mink pelt for a dollar or perhaps isIwinter to do nothing but buy furs of the Indians selling them later at a handsome margin of profit These agents usually travel from reservation to reservation by dog team or snow shoes Even the little weasel scores of which daily leave their tiny tracks in the snow on the outskirts of the peltsTheyand two years ago were worth 10 cents peltsbroughtalso belongs to the homologue of the American sable together with the mar ten mink fisher and otter The Ameri can sable really is the marten accord ing to some authorities It is common ly called the pine marten and at first glance the only distinguishing feature between it and the mink is a spot of beautiful orange color on its throat just under the chin A grizzly bear skin is worth 40 if in the best condition but of course grizzly bears are unknown In the Lake Region Many black bears are trapped and shot

ThisGovernmentalgime of the Cadets Uncle Sam has one governmental school which while little known is well worthy to rank with West Point ofthewhich it gives its graduates This un heralded educational institution is lo ChesapeakeBayBaltimore and its purpose is to prepare for their profession the cadets or future commissioned officers of the United States Revenue Cutter Service It is only within a few years that the awakeningtoand advantages open to an officer in seainbeen of late a marked increase in the applications for admission to the cadet school Any young man not less than 18 nor more than 25 years of age and heightisment as a cadet but no persons should delude themselves with the idea that corpsforquite 33 severe as those at either West Point or Annapolis However all the examinations for the selection of cadets are strictly competitive Political and social influ ences are entirely eliminated and this is unquestionably the most democratic school under the government The trainingto a practice cruise on a barkrigged vessel during which the young men get anpincidentallythe academic year which extends from October to May The pay of a cadet is 500 a year and a ration of 30 cents a day out of purchasemeet his mess expenses The sum of 10 per month is also withheld from the pay of each cadet in order that upon graduation he can purchase the uniform and outfit ot a commissioned officer When the cadet graduates he receives a commission as a third lieu tenant in the Revenue Cutter Service at a salary of 1400 per year Three promotions will bring him to the rank of captain with 2500 salary per year and an increase of ten per cent for each five years service A Strenuous Life The cadets at the training school on Chesapeake Bay lead a strenuous ex istence They turn out at 630 oclock in the morning and after half an hour allowed for dressing report for drill which continues for fortyfive minutes ere the call for breakfast is given From 9 until 1230 oclock there are periods of study and recita tion then half an hour for recreation before dinner which is served from one to two oclock In the afternoon there is more study and recitation with fortyfive minutes drill Half an hour before supper and one hour after supper are allowed for amusement and then from 7 to 9 comes another study neriod An hour of skylarking closes the day and the cadets turn in at 10 oclock During the three year interim the future Revenue Cutter officers acquire a wide range of book learning includ ing mathematics English history law hygiene seamanship engineering astronomy chemistry civil gov ernment etc Incidentally muscle building is looked after by means of the setting up and other athletic drills While the officers in charge of the training school for Revenue Cutter cadets fully realize that all work and no play makes for dullness no such prom NEW thence Is given to social features as ia the case at the academies at Annapolis and West Point The Revenue Cutter cadets are at on Saturday afternoons and these half holidays are usually devoted to hops but aside from these functions and such merrymaking as can be crowded into the two weeks vacation in the autumn or the vacation of one week in the spring the young men apply themselves pretty closely to their studies BALDWINS NEW AIRSHIP anyFlying believesheBaldwinbeaeronaut having been engaged in the

end of the ship instead of at the stern where it might naturally be looked for and this gives the keynote to one of Captain Bald wins most important inventions namely the scheme of having the rapidly revolving propeller pull the ship through the air instead of pushing it as a ship is pushed through the water Nearly fifty feet from the propeller at the other end of the keel is the rud der by which the steering is accomplished This rudder is about six by eight feet in size and consists of canvas stretched upon a wooden frame Attached to the framework of the keel Is also a tank which is ca pable

Warning Note on Forest Destruction Million Acres Should Be Treeplanted Everett Hale In Vigorous Sl eci Secretary Wilson has more than once manifested a deep interest in the question of American Forestry Mr Wilson has in fact for some years been elected and reelected President of the American Forestry Association a pow erful organization composed of public pirited men throughout the country wnicn has probably done more than any other one influence to awaken national interest in the enormous destruction of the forests and the neces sity for their businesslike management and preservation even to the reforest ation of denuded areas and the plant ing of trees upon barren prairie lands That the movement in the United States is coming to be considered an important one is to some extent evi denced by the increased recognition of the subject by Congress which is also due largely to Secretary Wilsons enthusiasm When Mr Wilson was appointed Secretary of Agriculture by President McKinley his forestry di vision consisted of one forester an assistant forester and five clerks and with an annual appropriation from REV EDWARD EVERETT HALE Congress for forestry of 30000 Since then forestry division has been advanc ed into a separate bureau of the Depart ment of Agriculture employing over 500 men and having an annual appropriation from Congress of upwards of onehalf a million dollars Fully a million acres of forest lands in the eastern part of tHe United States have been turned over to the Bureau of Forestry for management on a practical and scientific basis which will en able the cutting of the forest for lum ber and at the same time insuring succeeding crops of timber while over 100000000 of the acres of gover ment Forest reserves in the west have also been turned over to the Bureau of Forestry for administrationSIt Is probable that at least another 50000 000 acres of public timber land will be placed in federal reserves Secretary Wilson in his opening ad dress at the recent annual meeting of the American Forestry Association in Washington uttered a clear note of warning against the wholesale reduction of the woodland area in the countryNo on earth is as successful in the work of destroying its forests as the United States he declared The indiscriminate mutilation of the forests must be stopped the matter has become one of national interest which can not much longer be ignored by the people or by our legislators After advocating the broadest kind of protective forest policy he touched on the subject of reforesting certain sections He thought that every day should be an arbor day that every year should mark a notable advance in the effort to recover lost ground Plant A Million Acres We should plant he said not 10 000 acres nor stop at 100000 acres but should plant 1000000 acres in trees and this would be viewed from several points the very best investment which the United States ever made It would be a paying money investment to the government and it would be a tremendous help to our agriculture The price of merchantable timber is in creasing with great rapidity while every pne knows the very beneficial effect that has resulted from the plant Ing of windbreaks in the prairie states Another address before the Association by the venerable Edward Everett Hale now the Chaplain of the U itei States Senate constituted a cleancut statement of the great necessity f prompt action to protect the forests Dr Hale is around eighty years or age he remembers when the saw and the ax had scarce touched the giant monarchs ofnorthernunbroken wildernesses and when those of the far northwest in that marvelous country where rolls the Oregon were a terra incognita He has seen whole states denuded of their valuable timber and burned over by devastating fires due to reckless and wasteful methods he has seen the axman and the mill man move westward swiftly and surely mowing down everything in his sewtionAt the present rate of timber cutting in

burden to spear the cheerful word that may bring neW hope new life and energy to take Bt tice of the lonely to do the little sea of kindness thoughtfulness so generosity that manifest the hoard sympathetic interest in ones fellow creatures Opportunities for doing a kindness are often lost for lack of thought the members of the Sunshine Society strive to cultivate the habit of sym pathy that will give them a keener grasp and a deeper understanding of the lives of those around them The Society is unique in that there are no salaries paid The president general every minor officer and member gives his or her services Even the necessary clerical work Is freely donated The personal sacrifices that every officer and member makes to carry on the work cannot be estimated Its Origin and Growth The Society was incorporated under the laws of New York in 1900 and today there are 400000 enrolled mem bersThe Society is the outgrowth ofa thought expressed by Mrs Cynthia Westover Alden in the office of the New York Recorder several years ago during the holiday season Mrs Alden was the recipient of a number of cards from her coworkers on the paper as well as outside friends After enjoying the cards she protested that she would have been better pleased if the donors had not written their names ott them This statement horrified her audience and with one accord every one exclaimed What You wouldnt give our presents away would you Why not was the answer What do you do with yours A laughing investigation soon developed the fact that the waste basket was the ultimate destination of most of the cards received Let me give you the history of one pretty tencent card that came to me a year ago said Mrs Alden It had an exquisite poem on it and I enjoyed it so much that I thought at once of an old uncle who would appreciate it and forwarded it to him He as I thought did enjoy it and so much so that he immediately recalled an old friend to whom it vrould appeal with special force So he copied the poem and sent the card on This recipient found the card so helpful that she too felt called upon to pass it on and before the seven days k liday was over the card had carried its Christ mas message to six different persona Of course this is exceptional but is still an example of the infinite posit bilities of a gift accepted in the true spirit and then passed on giving each one the double delight of receiving and giving The cards which had afforded the little sermon were spread out and were Continued on next page ROV 1 lIeISis sb feet long weighs a1 L E lbs elepntly

idea of sending out remembrances that might be multiplied fourfold a new set of cards was given to Mrs Alden by the Recorders staff and these cards were at Once sent out The thanks received tor them were so pretty that an item was made of them in the New York Recorder This caused further correspondence and resulted in a club for the exchange of friendly greetings The name of Chat was at first Chosen for the column but in time the Membership grew so large that the mo lo Good Cheer was adopted and in 1896 the name of the society was Changed to the Sunshine Society land its active members were to include full who were desiroas of brightening life by word thought or deed The growth of the Society has been almost phenomenal From the parent Bociety branches have sprung up until every State in the Union is represent led with regularly enrolled presidents find organizers When a State has ten branches each One consisting of at least ten members It becomes entitled to a State presi dent Besides the thousands of mem bers in the United States there are nourishing branches in England Ja pan India France and Germany The Society Motto The competition to furnish the So cietys motto ran for three months and PRESIDENT GElIW ALDEN among the many thousands of verseS received the following poem sent in by Mrs W H Chase of Brooklyn was selected Good Cheer Have you had a kindness shown Pass it on Twas not given for you alone Pass it on Let it travel down the years Let it wipe anothers tears frill in heaven the deed appears Pass it on At the time the verse was selected no one knew the author and it was not for several years after the Society had adopted the motto that the writer was discovered to be Rev Henry Bur ton D D of Lytham England Mr Burton wrote the poem twentyfive years ago and had almost forgotten it until the Sunshine Society brought it into prominence Mr Burton is rector of the Lytham Episcopal Church and has become so interested in the Society that now everybody In his church and Sunday school has become a Sunshiner Mr Burtons parishioners are build ing a beautiful new church and Sun shiners the world over are planning to raise funds for a handsome memorial windovr bearing the poem which has inspired so many to acts of kind ness and thoughtfulnessThe One of the unique features of the Society is the payment of membership tees which consists merely of some kind act which will bring sunshine to some one It may be only an ex thange of books pictures or flowers or It may bring more material benefit In one State a well known woman has paid her dues by educating some boy as long as she lives instead of placing a costly monument over her sons grave In nearly every State in the Union the Society owns a wheel chair given in memory of some dear one These are passed around to crippled and helpless ones and are constantly in use Though the Society has never solicited funds it is estimated that 100000 has been given to carry on its work From the International headquarters 96 Fifth Avenue New York City nearly 60000 has been expended in the past five years to make others happy Newspaper Aid The newspapers must be given Credit in a large degree for the growth of the Society Originating in a newspaper office it has everywhere received the endorsement of the press until today over 200 papers are regularly carrying Sunshine departments The Society has a publication of its own called the Sunshine Bulletin of which Mrs Aldsn the founder and presidentgeneral Is editor Features of Sunshine Work Each State division of the Sunshine Society endeavors to have some established feature besides the individual sunskime each member strives to scatter Tills work takes the form of day nurseries homes for crippled children land aged ones maintaining beds In hospital wards fresh air and outing pottagqs Sunshine libraries lunch rooms for working girls etc etc The greatest evil the Society has to Contend with is the fake

breaths People glanced from side to side and a few feet shuffled uneasily Then a tiny puff of smoke came from the left wing and travelled as far as the middle of the stage It was followed by a larger rolling cloud The effect was in stantaneous Fire shrieked a shrill voice anti a woman started up frantically Fire FireIn an instant the huge theatre was a seething swaying mass from all sides burst screams sobs and oaths For a few seconds people were pushed in purposeless groups hither and thith er Then suddenly the crowd broke into rocking unwieldly sections each pushing fighting tearing towards the nearest exit In the middle of the house very still sat a group of three The Woman was in the middle the Husband on her right the Other Man on her left For the first few seconds It seemed as It they must be swept off their seats Then with a quick movement the Other Man wheeled half round on his chair put one hand on the back of the Womans seat and the other on the seat before her The Husband silent- y followed his example They were both big strong men Their hands met in a steady grip behind and In front of her Thus till the rush was over they formed a human cage for her protection shunting off by theIr braced rigid frames their crowding frantic neighbors Thank you she said quitely when the middle of the theatre was deserted I couldnt have borne to be touched by suchanimals She gave a hurried glance at the nearest mass of hu manity and then fixed her eyes whimsically on the smokeclouded stage In front What do they remind one of she asked as though thinking aloud It was the Other Man who answered Pigs he said contemptuously pigs when the trough has just been filled crowding toward it She half turned her head towards HURT HAND him Yes said gravely they do look like that Suddenly the fireproof curtain began to move Oh thank God shrieked a fashion ably dressed woman her face matte Ibideous by fear A sea of other faces stamped with every shade of terror and ferocity turned towards the stage at the cry For an instant the tumult sank to some like silence Hope and thankfulness arose in a thousand breasts Then the againItsstuckand the fight for life continued in all its Bickenlng cowardly savagery Have we any chance asked the Woman simply For a moffient neither answered Then again it was the Other Man who spoke Unless they get the curtain down in time none he answered There are no other exits I know the place well It wont be the fire probably but thOstiiolce In a minute or two we must mate fllfthef bitch from it He spoke with admirable restraintAnd

faintly What did she mean Did she know what she was saying Probably not he decided What had he said himself a minute ago He could not remember What did anything matter now He went without a word The Other Man stared straight in front of him His face was a mask For a minute they sat very still Then he turned round Come he said in an ordinary voice it is time to move She gave him her hand and he helped her over chairs and wooden forms till they were at the back of the build ing Here she asked No he said and spread his coat on the floor Here please The nearer the ground the less smoke you know She sat down silently and motioned him to share the coat Then suddenly she laughed Its queer isnt it she said that we should think about getting our clothes dustynow- He did not answer He was twisting a button on his overcoat round and round it came off in his hand Sud denly he spoke You are very brave he said She drew a quivering breath Im trying to be brave enough for two she said in a low voice He made no reply he did not want to understandIm she added hurriedly that we moved Perhapshe will not find us here He turned swiftly with a rush of joy Elizabeth he cried Then you are content here

Woman Who Died of a Broken Heart mutelytoldof the cemeteries in the city of Wash ington DC The story runs that a beautiful young woman daughter of rich parents fell in love with a poor and struggling

admiration by her devotion to his rival and when she was buried in the family lot in Rock Creek Cemeteiy he com missioned St Gaudens the scupltor to make a bronze statue of heroic size depicting her as she was found dead and covered with her bathrobe The figure of the woman is seated with the bathrobe drawn about her and the work is one of great strength The bronze is surrounded by marble beautifully carved In front of it is a long marble seat where one may ad mire the work of art No name marks the spot but at each corner of the lot is a small marble block about six AIa trees so that one not familiar with the spot looks in vain for the figure Character of Englands King The character of King Edward while Prince of Wales appears to have been greatly misunderstood Many scandals were

entirely upon ourselves and whether or not we are keeping up with the procession in raising the kind of chickens which bring the most cash and in getting them into the market at a time when the demand is greatest The value of poultry production for the United States this season was but a shade under that of wheat or cotton amounting to over half a billion dol lars Since the perfection of the in cubator the importance of the industry has been greatly augmented By the use of this splendid device it is now comparatively esy to bring in large quantities of chickens for the winter and early spring market when p ces are very attractive Hens can be urged but they can not be made to set if they do not wa to the incubator can be set at any time All that is necessary is a proper regard to the tem perature and to the brooding of the young chicks during the tender period of their existence The incubator has interested thousands of women and children in the work of chicken raising and it is not to be said that the returns are less profitable than plowing or other heavy manual labor Cheap Machines the Most Expensive There are many excellent incubato upon the market but there are also many cheap imperfect machines the purchasers of which failing to secure good results become disgusted and inform their neighbors that artificial in cubation is a failure and a fake On the other hand the

operation of an incubator close attention and ex actness are necessary yet the results are more than worth the effort The woman who fills her lamps regularly every morning and the man who winds his watch or clock the same hour every evening need not fear the task of running an incubator but unless one is willing to attend to the few wants of his machine at the right time it will be unreasonable to look for a good hatching of chickens from the best incubator upon the marketThe writer has used incubators an has found great delight in hatching FLOCK OF WHITE LEGHORN COCKERELS there of to chine

slight expend iture for a set of instruments can fol low it to any degree desired It requires some judgment and a little attention but caponizing is not difficult it is one of those things which while it looks in the beginning to be a hard proposition gradually comes to you all of itself so that the first thing you know you become almost an expert and the reward is very considerable Capons always sell readily and at a good advance in price The birds become very docile and easily handled and are always money makers The readiness wit which the new capon recovers from the wound is a revela SCENES
