theetill Y dgal his lens have been tde dinol winning any considerable and trust worthy Democratic support he has probably added to the formal hostil ity of partisanship new and bitter elements of personal dislike and distrust Tested by their results the moves ne has made must be set down as unconscionably bad pol itics and Mr Roosevelt has been rated a good politician We presume there was politics in the attack upon Senator Bailey and we vvr originated or was sug gested in the White House There is evidence to support that belief But we think candid menwill acquit the President of any part in it It is the fate of Presidents to be sur rounded by superserviceable secre taries and placemen more distin guished for their loyalty to their chief than for the exercise of good judgment u their attempts to serve him Senator Builey denounced the writer of this calumny as all sorts of a liar and extended his de nunciation to its originators whoever they might be He might have added that the pitiablesilliness of the charge that he bad sought to defeat the irate bill by loading it down with unconstitutional amend ments was its own refutation In the newpaptr dispatch that formed the subject of his brief but pointed remarks the statement wnsV made that Senator Chandler had carried to the White House the tale that Senator Tilman was distrustful of Senator Bailey and believed him to be treacherous because heII had devised his extraordinary amend ment prohibiting the lower courts of the United States from exercising the right to issue interlocutory orders for the sole purpose of de feating the railroad bill If Sena tor Bailey did engage in this ne farious plot then the President and Attorney General must be branded as his copartners in the dark conspiracy for they too in sisted upon a limitation of the right to issue exparte injunctions It is unlikely that the most active and eager supporters of the Hepburn bill from the President down havereally been trying to kill it by the addition of unconstitutional matterAs the most painful and reo gretable feature of this controversy the question of veracity that has been raised we think Senator reenforcingthat far toward producing the convic tion in open minds that they are right in their recollection and the President wrong It is not necessary to assume and we altogether decline to believe that the Presi dent has deliberately and conscious ly misstated the facts in the trans action The mindof Theodore Roosevelt concerns itself so intent ly from dawn until midnight with such multitude cf large affairs e sees o manY meuand eJPutjt rig about I party leaders not unnatural but it was woe1 indiscrete and illadvised that L should denounce as falsehoods statements attributed to him which reached the public through Senator Tillmans version given in the Senate of what Mr Chandler Iud heard in the White House Upon the lips of the President of the United States such language is unseemly and telephonic distance does not soften it Besides itwas unnec essaiy for the President to dis claim with that vigor sentiments which everybody knows he enter tains concerning the relation of Senators Knox Spooner and Fora ker to the Hepburn bill It ought to be a chastening expe rience for Mr Roosevelt but we almost despair of him He is a hard fighter he is pretty strenions even at plav and he ought to lie able and willingito bear occasionally a hard knock himself He ough moreover to understand that if the high exigencies of the executive policy requites him now and then to shift his tactics with great suddenness without taking his friend into his confidence as he evidently did shift his tactics in accepting the Allison amendments without notifying his Democratic allies that he would disperse with their fur ther aid those who have stood at his right hand and his left hand respectively have a right to be sur prisedand have right to exhibit that emotion with some little irrita tion thrown in The President would be in many respects more comfortable and so would the peo ple if hwere a quieter man Plunging as he does into pretty much all the public and a great part of the private business of the country be necessarially foments ir Yv o wpLJuasition and rataC many rows He has now f had so prolongedan experience in raising rows that the country has aright to demandof him a decent respect for the laws of the game It would be a good thing if he could get the iilea into his head that thmen who oppose him may be just as upright and sincere as himself At least it would be wiser for him to restrain his rather free propensity for cue puting falsehood to those who an called upon to have dealings with himNew York Times BROWN MEMORIAL SCHOOL How TO AVOID STINGS Stings can be avoided first by having gentle bees I fn o other point of superi ority over the common brown or black bee than that of gentleness could be fairly claimed for some of the races introduced and some of the strains developed in recent years it would still be tooth while to get them on this account alone Of the races already in general cultivation Carniolans are the gentlest although Caucasians more recently introduced from south eastern Russia and only now being put On sale are by far the least in clined to sting ofany bees and may be handled at all times without smoke or at most with a very slight application of smoke Sonic strains of Italians equal tin gentle ness the average Carniolans but in general the race native to Italy is by no means as gentle as that found in Carniola Austria and the Caucasians are much to be prefer red for the beginner The second essential to enable one to avoid stings is to have a good smoker at hand whenever the bees are to be handled Any way of getting smoke of hindtinto the hive and about itmay an swer the purpose but lor ease and effectiveness in keeping bees under control nothing will takethe place of the modern bellows smoker A good one lasts years and its cost is so slight Iootor25 for the medium sizes that the expendi ture may be considered one of the wisest that can be made iii fitting up an apiary A veil made of black bobitiet or Brussels net to draw over the hat and a pair of gloves preferably of rubber may be used at first But whoever has fairly peaceable bees a t whole when slipped in between the brood apartment and an upper story or super will permit allof the workers above to go down into the lower story but not to return to the top one so that in one night it is possible to free entirely a set of comics from bees without any man ipulation of the combs and with out smoking shaking or brushing the bees Lastly reasonable care in manip ulation anda suitable system of management which of course implies the doing of work in proper season will with the observance of the foregoing points make the risk ofstings exceedingly slight Ii deed intelligent attention to the most important of the points mentioned above with extra gentleness and moderation in manipulation will enable any one who so desires to avoid all stings An estate conservatively estimated at 61000000 with an accum lation of 150 years is in Germany awaiting the claim of heirsofwhom

MT VERNON ROCKCASTLE COUNTY KY MAY 23 1906Pages1 to 4 CHAMPIONED PAUL JONES MRS DONALD MeLEAN FOUGHT FOR BURIAL OF NAVAL HERO AT ANNAPOLIS As PresidentGeneral of Patriotic Daughters of the American Revolution She Was Invited Guest of Honor at Ceremony When the annual convention of the Daughters of the American Revolution was in session in Washington a few weeks ago the meetings were presided over by Mrs Donald McLean She en joyed the unique distinction of being the first presiding officer of the con gress who was not the wife of some man prominent in official circles She had been a candidate for this high womans office for several years and the opposition to her election was plainly stated because she could not bring to the office high national prestige which the Daughters of the American Revolution felt was neces sary to the varied traditions of the so ciety FROM LONG LINE OF PATRIOTS Mrs McLean has half a yard or eo of ancestral bars on her revolutionary ribbon and hails back to some very distinguished citizens both men and women She was born in Prospect Hall Frederick Md the city made famous by Whittiers poem Barbara Fritchie The ancestral hall is a big beautiful MRS MtLEAN President of of Revolution old place of colonial architecture and it is only a few years since Mrs Ritchie mother of Mrs McLean died She also had been prominent in D A R matters ever since the organization of the society Judge John Ritchie father of Mrs McLean served in Con gress and was subsequently elevated to the bench of the Court of Appeals of Maryland He was an orator of re nown and Mrs i cLean seems to have inherited this attribute of her father Mrs McLeans grandfather was Judge William P Maulsby and her grandmother Emily Nelson for whom she was named was the daughter of Gen Roger Nelson who was a boy of sixteen in college when the Declaration of Independence was signed He ran away and joined the revolutionary forces He rose in rank to Brigadier General for conspicuous bravery on the field of battle He was left for dead on the battlefield of Cowpens and a British officer in passing his body wan tonly struck his hand with the fiat of his saber breaking the bones of every finger To his dying day which oc curred many years later Gen Nelson carried a stiffened hand He became a member of Congress and later was made a Justice of the Supreme Court of the State DATES BACK OF REVOLUTION Mrs McLeans ancestry began back of the revolutionary period however Judges Lynn and Beattle two of those twelve Judges known as The Twelve Immortals who first signed a protest against the British stamp act in 1765 ten years before the battle of Lexing ton have in Mrs McLean a descendant who is not unworthy of the illustrious example of fearlessness of spirit set by them Lieut James Lackland was also an ancestor of Mrs McLean as was also Deputy Governor Burgess of colonial Maryland history Mrs McLean was educated at what was at the time known as the Womans College She was graduated at the age of fourteen receiving a diploma which is one of her proud possessions today She continued her studies in history music and the languages until her mar riage in 1883 to Donald McLean a man of a long line of revolutionary ancestors like herself and a brilliant lawyer in New York city Mrs McLean has made a practical study of parliamentary law and In the long years of battling for chapter rights on thgfloor of the Continental Con gress own big chapter has bet come a finished expert in thrust and parry in parliamentary tactics At the Fourteenth Continental Con gress of the Daughters of the American Revolution when Mrs McLean was Regent of the New York Chapter she assisted in introducing a resolution looking to the burial of Paul Jones in Annapolis Md that being her native State Besides having a local pride she thought the first naval hero of the nation should be buried near to the great naval school There was tremendous opposition to the proposition and the congress voted to lay the resolution on the table an expression used in parliamentary pro ceedings to defer action on the subject Later it was taken up but the congress voted against taking the body of the naval hero to Annapolis and favored bringing it to Washington for burial in Arlington Mrs McLean has now how ever seen one of her dearest wishes carried out and as head of one of the greatest societies of patriotic women in the world she was a guest of honor at the recent burial ceremonies of Ad miral Paul Jones at Annapolis Made a Good Speech Senator Morgan the venerable states man from Alabama has that valuable sense of humor which enables the pos sessor to enjoy a joke when the laugh is on himself The other evening as he tells about it he picked up an old copy of the Congressional Record while at home and opening it at random be gan to read Very soon says the DONALD General Daughters the Senator I became interested and as I proceeded I said to myself This man is making a very sensible talk found myself quite in accord with his views and read along with a good deal of approval until I finished two pages I was wondering who could have made such a speech but was too much inter ested to look back to find out But aa I turned the page I came upon an in terruption and there was my own name given as the Senator making the reply It was my own speech I had been reading A Bad Memory Senator Knoxs physician advised him to give up smoking a few days ago and put him in the same class with Senator Spooner also smokeless after forty years of it The next morning Senator Knoxs

COMPLETE DESTRUC TION OF THE PICTURESQUE CALIFORNIA COLLEGE Built in Spanish Architecture and Cost of Buildings Alone was Thirty Million DollarsWill Probably be the mose serious results of the Pacific coast earthquake disaster is the destruction of Stanford Univer sity near Palo Alto More than 30 000000 had been expended on the buildings alone and the damage has been so severe that it will mean prac tically an entire loss This group of buildings was planned and built on a prearranged scheme and has been ac counted the finest group of structures for educational purposes on this con tinent if not in the entire world The buildings were all in the picturesque Spanish mission style with the arch as V2 principal architectural feature This fact which was so much a source of beauty has probably been the largest source of destruction because while the arch undisturbed is one of the most secure of building forms when thrown out of plumb it must fall- IRREPARABLE ART LOSS The main buildings are built around an inner quadrangle which contains the offices of administration and some class rooms These buildings are all one story in height The outer quad rangle which comprises the principal architectural features of the univer sity has as main points of interest the memorial arch with its wonderful frieze by St Gaudens representing the progress of civilization in America and directly opposite this through the inner quadrangle the Stanford Memo rial Church with its mosaic front de picting the Sermon on the Mount This building cost in construction alone 1000000 exclusive of the mo saics and carvings inside and out and its marble statues and art treasures from Europe Perhaps it may be said that the loss of the buildings and equipment in spite of their great value is the least part of the disaster because since the university was started on Senator Stanfords Palo Alto ranch it has been a marvelous incentive toward higher education on the Pacific coast Not only has it gone ahead with great strides on its own account but it has carried the State University at Berke ley along with it in healthy rivalry until the two gave an equipment for higher education in California that was not rivaled by that of any other State MRS STANFORDS GENEROSITY If it were iiot for the indomitable spirit which seems to have enabled the university to triumph over many diffi culties it might be said that its career has been particularly illstarred Foi in spite of its great endowment said to exceed that of any other institution of learning in the country it has been unfortunate from the beginning Vexatious litigation arose at the time of Senator Stanford s death in 1894 and the claims put forward by those who had received personal bequests to have them settled first seriously impaired the finances of the university because it was impossible to realize upon its property After that the Pacific rail road suits tied up the university money for a couple of years until the Su preme Court decided in favor of the Stanford estate But Mrs Stanford with wonderful courage and singleness of purpose unselfishly turned all of her property over to the university saw it through its crises until her recent tragic death In Honolulu when the Leland Stanford University was again thrown in despair Its present de struction by the earthquake seems to come as a culminating disaster yet it is probable that it will rise again su perior to the conditions which seem in league against it though it has practically been set back to an absolutely new beginning planshaveing of the university

IN DISTANCE MEMORIAL ARCH AND STAN FORD GROUP the young man or woman is likely to look upon department service as a beautiful life of Do Little and Draw Your Pay and watch the passing slaw But ithasits seamy side and carries both advantages and disadvan tages in its train There is the danger of fossilization of becoming a leaf in the sere with energies gone and aspiration dead This danger is great and seems almost inevitable to him who has many years of service in the departments Though all will not agree with the Hon Champ Clark in a recent article in the Satur day Evening Post when he says Over the doorways of the Departments should be inscribed in letters so large that he who runs may read All Hope Abandon Ye Who Enter Here Yet to the young man and woman who would keep the

DYNAMITE TONS OF THE EXPLOSIVE USED AT SAN FRANCISCO TO FIGHT FLAMES Three Men of Navy at Risk of Their Lives Place Compound in Teeth of Oncoming FireWhole Blocks Razed to Prevent Disaster Through the destructive agency of dynamite the section of San Francisco still standing was saved at a cost of more than a million dollars This pow erful compound was scientifically wielded by three men of the U S Navy sent by Admiral McCalla from Mare Island with orders to check the confla propertyWithhalf of gun cotton the terrific power of which was equal to the maniacal de termination of the fire Capt MacBride was in command of the squad Chief Gunner Adamson placed the charges and the third gun ner set them off The thunderous detonations to which the terrified city listened all that dread ful Friday night meant the salvation of many lives A million dollars worth of property noble residences and worthless shacks alike were blown to drifting dust but that destruction broke the spirit of the fire and sent the raging flames cringing back over their own charred path- DYNAMITE A BLOCK DEEP The whole east side of Van Ness ave nue from Golden Gate to Greenwich was dynamited a block deep though most of the structures stood untouched rgefailedfoundations Unless some second ma rms is the finest dinner set ever offered decorated with the owners initial Any lady trouble You only need to sell

unilluminated except by the disastrous glare on the water front seemed safe by 9 oclock Van Ness avenue is fiat as the earth on the east side Every pound of gun cotton did its work and though the ruins burned it was but feebly From Golden Gate avenue on the north the fire crossed the wide street in but one placethe Claus Spreckels residence on the corner of California street There the flames were writhing up the walls before the dynamiters could reach it yet they made their way to the foundations carrying their explo so and the fuse lit in such a hurry that the explosion was not quite successful from the trained viewpoint of the gunners But though the walls still stood it was only an empty victory for the fire as bare brick and smoking ruins are poor food for flames- EFFECTIVE WORK OF WEEK Capt MacBrides dynamiting squad realized that a stand was hopeless ex cept on Van Ness avenue They could have forced their explosives further in the burning section but not a pound of the terrible guncotton could be or was wasted The ruined block that met the wide thoroughfare formed a trench through the clustered structures that the conflagration wild as it was could not leap Engines pumping brine through Fort Madison from the bay completed the little work that the gun cotton had left but for three days the haggardeyed firemen guarded the flick ering ruins The desolate waste straight through the heart of the city Is a mute witness to the most heroic and effective work of the whole calamity Three men did thisthree simply because they would not trust their work to othersand when their work was over and what stood of the city for the first time rested quietly they departed as mod estly as they had come They were or dered to save San Francisco they obeyed orders and Capt

from London and that the best dressed man in the world is the American turned out by a London tailor An American who spends a great part of his time in London anu is rather a stickler for the correct thing was recently hailed on Broadway by a friend with the remark So thats what theyre wearing in London eh The man addressed shook his headt Suit made in Washington overcoat In New York he said Thought you were togged out from Bond Street sure in a disappointed tone Then the man who lives much in London made this radical announcement They cant make a sack suit in Eng land You ask a Bond Street tailor for an American business suit with an American fit and he turns out a FRENCH MOTOR RAILROAD TRUCK coat that gives you a cavedin chest when its buttoned up and a decidedly open front when its unbuttoned Yet some West End tailoring estab lishments in London depend for their very existence on American trade not alone the trade of Americans travel ing abroad but a mail order business which entails making on measurements and forwarding by express likewise payment of duty So impor tant is this business that a cable code has been arranged With this code a complete catalog and full directions for self measurement a man may cable his order to London and feel reasonably certain that the clothes he wants will leave England by the next westward bound steamer One traveler from a firm in London making a specialty of cable orders recently visited New York and booked orders to the amount of six thousand pounds sterling But this class ot business is all in semiready clothing a system which has been adopted from American tailors Yet the American readymade has been a subject of laughter on the other side and the New Yorkers claim to be the best dressed man in the world has been received with jeers To the foreigner the idea of a man who has literally no time to devote to matters sartorial being well dressed is absurdand the New Yorker has no time He cant wait for clothes to be made by a custom tailorWhen he needs a suit he dashes into one of those immense haberdasheries that dot both sides of Broadway from the Battery to the Bronx where thousands of ready for service suits and overcoats are piled on long tables in stacks that rise above a mans head Here are found prices and sizes to fit every customer Sack suits from 3 to 50 advertised for cut and smartness They are smart too are better cut and sewn than the English cheap suit but the latter is made of better material It is just this differ ence that makes the American crowd look smart and prosperous while the English crowd looks merely comfort ableThe New Yorker must look prosper ous It is part of his stock in trade His clothes must not appear old any more than his face This demand for youth and freshness is what makes it possible for some firms to sell as high as 7000 suits in a day Hats and shoes get even more attention than clothes The ancient saw When broke buy a new hat is so thoroughly appreciated by the New Yorker that he receives without even a grin such advertisements as that which puzzled Count Witte as he walked down Broadway Fall Lids for Faded Faces it read Fall mut tered the Russian diplomat with a look of weary amazement fall that means to tumble down does it not Some one explained that fall was the American for the season which all other nations know as autumn Last winter a leading London daily gave a column every morning to the discussion of The Fetish of the Black Coat Every clerk and sales man in London wears a frock or Prince Albert during his work and like the English artisan he wears the costume of his trade after hours For weeks members of Parliament and celebrities in many lines argued in out seeie lseethea the public press as to which system was better the American custom which ordained the sack suit in busi ness and a change of raiment for laborers after hours or the English custom which set the frock coat up as the emblem of respectability among tradesmen a mark distinguishing them from the laboring classes and kept the latter in blouse and hobnailed boots during his hours of rest In England they talk a lot of what seems awful rot to this side of the water and they take clothes very seriously Each class has its gar ments and each garment its use In London the Tuxedo is still a lounge coat something to be slipped on during the early evening and dis carded for the formal swallow tail before starting for any entertainment But the American has forced it into public life has ordained a black tie and gold shirt studs with it in place NEW of the white tie and pearl studs that must be worn with the tailed coat The American speaks of his Tuxedo suit and his dress suit The English man talks of his evening clothes and would as soon think of changing his trousers to match his smoking jacket as of changing his studs and tie to accord with his Tuxedo buytheirmade most men regard with envy the one who has time and money to hav his clothes made and fitted The En glishman of means considers it his duty to have his clothes made by th asbadlyremain long at a time within his own country London custom tailors have stored in their safes measurements of hundreds of wandering Britons who usually cable from various parts of the world when they need new clothes These measurements are a valuable asset and insurance on them frequently amounts to several thou sand pounds sterling As a matter of fact the best dressed man in the world is neither the New Yorker nor the Londoner but the man who gets his frock coat cutaway and evening clothes from the Bond Street tailors who have made these styles of masculine dress for centuries and his sack suits and overcoats from saytheyNew Clothes for Easter The flowers with which many churches are ornamented on Easter Day are most probably emblems of the Resur rection There are people today who think that unless something new is worn on Easter Day no good fortune will come to them

last book Animal heroes is If possible more than ever up to the standard of his intensly teresting wildanimal tales To the animal lover this new collection will be read with absorbing attention Mr Seton has been subjected to considerable criticism by other naturalists notably John Burroughs for endowing his animal characters with un usual intelligence and powers which it is claimed are not possessed by any dumb creatures Very likely as a class but as Mr Seton himself admits in his preface to Animal Heroes these histories while in each case founded on the actual lifedoings of a real animal are more or less composite What novelist indeed does not combine the most striking characteristics of several individuals to construct his human hero who shall appeal to the reader as an ex ceptionally fine character So has Mr Seton taken the record of a number of wood or other animals and embodied their most striking kills or folllugs of the pack into specimenLikeis delightfully

of a Desperate Hand to Hand Encounter Against Heavy Odds Now and then among the brutali ties and crimes that form the chief subjects of daily journalism in this to our morbid nature but gets in close to the primal love of fight which springs eternal in the human animal Most of us have no modes are Latin in a country of prejudices But just a week before the press dispatches from Bristol Tennessee told of the sudden demise of seven Italians who with others had conspired to murder their section foreman because he was a hard boss Doubtless he was Nevertheless the old fighting blood tingles at the bare account of the bat tle that the foreman Haverly whose name suggests his nationality waged against the body of la borers that rushed him Had he been armed with a revolver he would have no sympathy but he depended on the first weapon at handa crowbar Backed against an embankment he withstood the combined attack of the entire gang of laborers all bent on his murder and armed against him with picks axes and spades in addition to their knives Repugnant as the idea of killing may be one can scarcely help a thrill at the thought of the foreman Haverly at bay like a knight of former days fighting for his life and so sturdily and valiantly laying about him weapon for weapon steel against steel until he stretched seven of his assailants dead before him and routed the rest Haverly may be a brute and a bully he may have deserved what the laborers rising like desperate slaves against a tyrant had in store for him Yet somehow that is hard to believe because the innate love for combat in our nature challenges ad des Little Cannibals of the cannibal istic habits among growing fowls espe cially among those still in the days o f their early babyhood This pernicious habit when once the young birds be come thoroughly addicted to it is rath er difficult to control and suppress Usually it finds its chief expression in flocks confined to close quarters where the ground is bare and the feed is wanting in animal matter Bird life under natural conditions finds oppor tunity for work and play in the hunt ing of insects for food and in the care ful selection of such vegetable mat healthful exercise the result is that they become idle which engenders vicious habits and a craving for some thing to do as well as for animal food When in this condition if a member of the little flock shows a wound or effects of blood the chances are that one or two will at once commence to peck at it which leads the others on and soon the whole flock will be rend ing the little one into shreds devour ing it before one has opportunity to re lieve its misery or to isolate it from the flock The remedy of course is obvious namely afford the young chicks a wider range and be more care ful in your feeding by making it a point to keep them busy by throwing the food into litter or suspending a head of lettuce or cabbage where they can peck at it also supply in one form or another animal food A good way to do this is to take the scratching chick feeds which of them selves are a balanced ration and scat ter the same in a litter of chopped that will make a litter may be consid ered

STORAGE Frozen The Department is fol in cold storage for an ualimited time and Dr Wiley believes that he will de velop the fact that legislation is needed fixing the period for which such ar ticles as meats and milks may be storedIn one of the cold storage houses space has been set aside for the ex riments and a like arrangement has been made in Washington for storing birds and milk The stored articles will be taken out from time to time and examined to ascertain whether or not deterioration has begun and at what period the point has been reached when the ar ticles can be no longer stored and re main good food It already has been demonstrated Dr Wiley says that the bacteria that occasion decay remain In the meat while frozen and that they actually carry on their work although at a greatly reduced rate In one of the cold storage plants in gotten for a period of eleven years It portionDecay had gone on to such an extent that the meat was entirely ur for use The greater portion of it was again placed in storage and the observation will be continued The fact that the meat having been frozen for eleven years was in a condition of decay is held to prove that the bacteria can work in the meat while has progressed to such an extent as to injure the food value of the article is at present no law prohibiting the storage of any article for any length of time The only law upon the subject is one that requires fowls to be drawn before they are placed in stor age The Oregons Big Pennant When the Oregon left Hongkong re cently after her long period of service on the Asiatic

about the impending battle LeFevre being familiar with the explosives and ap paratus in use on both sides The Germans were depending largely upon their late invention the Calnite aerial bomb This projectile was to be fired by compressed air from a mortar like gun and being fitted with a gyro scope would maintain its elevation for a distance of eight miles The bomb was two feet In diameter and about three feet long and moved so slowly as to be visible during its whole course It contained a charge of two hundred pounds of Calnite a new explosive whose force operated always down ward The bomb contained also a mag net and circuitbreaker so tuned as to be responsive to electrical vibrations set up in a powerful electrical Instru ment on the discharging ship By the use of a unique range finding apparatus the bomb was kept in sight during its whole flight and upon reaching the desired point it was exploded by the mere pressure of a button on the ship from which it had been fired Tests

observing operations on the surface and doing its work with deadly accu racy LeFevre could not give me the details of this strange machine Its terrible effectiveness however was ap parent the next day I had no apprehension whatever as to laydownwithout the least apprehension Stanch and true was she even as my own sweet betrothed It was still dark when Iwas awakened with a start by the sound of heavy detonations below us I leaped to my feet and looked over the side of the car LeFevre joined me the next moment- The Germans had evidently planned a night attack by the use of their illumi alightinmake out the vessels over which shone the strong bluewhite lights Far off in the darkness we could see the occa sional flash of a gun The Germans were sending home great shells loaded with explosives Their aerial bombs could not be followed at night The French were replying but their fire was more or less blind The roar of the guns came up to us plainly It shook the heavens Suddenly there was a flash that lit up the whole sky and a terrific explosion sounded from below A German shell had found its mark One of the French battleships had gone to her long home During the rest of the night there was no intermission in the heavy firing Fearful explosions sounded now and then and we could but guess the de struction that was being wrought had no wish to see either side win at the expense of the other At dawn we were able to note the situation clearly Six or eight miles away to the northeast lay the German fleet Almost beneath us the French were gathered In loose order Both were plying their great guns On both sides burning ships were drifting away others were careening halffilled with water And now with the coming of daylight the combatants resorted to their deadliest appliances As we watched one of the French battleships there was a dull explosion The great hull opened split in twain like a cante loupe and went skiddering to the bottom We could see it deep in the clear water its hundreds of seaman swarm ing around like so many ants in a bowlIt was remarkable to note the sub marines moving here and there under water From our height we could see clear to the bottom and every boat was visible by a bright streak as it swept through the water Suddenly LeFevre clutched my arm and pointed The Centrifugal he said In a whis per I watched it on its way advancing in a bright whirl of bubbles It was making its way toward the German SUDDENLY LE FEVRE CLUTCHED MY ARM perceived by fleet and thither we followed But whatever work awaited this ter ror must be done quickly The Ger mans were wonderfully accurate with their Calnite aerial bombs Ship after ship quivered split open and sank like a broken teacup The force of the cal nite was so great that it operated for a distance of a hundred yards on every side more than once sinking several explosionLeFevresaw one of the largest battleships collapse fairly smashed into fragments CentrifugalOnlaggard The Centrifugal moved swiftly At intervals it came up with a submarine paused a moment to ascertain whether accordinglydarted at the victim touched it and as quickly darted away What terrible power it exerted I could not understand but at that fatal touch the enemy sank There seemed to be no escape no single chance Presently this swift and silent messenger of death was in the thick of the German fleet Looking back I saw that there were but two of the French ships left both sadly disabled The shapebutI sent LAimee lower to observe more closely The Centrifugal heeded not the torpedo nets It passed through ob structions as though it were spirit We saw it under the bow of the Frederich Wilhelm the largest battleship of the fleet For half a minute it lay there surrounded as ever by that whirl of sparkling bubbles Then it darted away toward another So interested were we in watching the uncanny move ments of the strange boat that we did not observe the confusion on board the Frederich nor on the others that were successively visited LeFevre noticed the great ships settling low in the water and spoke of it to me There was something terrible about this de stroyer Inside of fifteen minutes every vessel in that fleet had been stung as it were by this great hornet of the sea and every one was sinking The sea men were throwing themselves off flungintofinished her work and we saw her whirling away stopping here and there to smell a submarine and to kiss it or to sting it as it happened to be friend or foe What a sight Twentyfour German ships sinking sinking going down to eternal silence One after another they vanished The torpedo boats came to the surface saw what had hap pened and put out for home and neu tral ports The Centrifugal the grim destroyer vanished The great battle was over And neither side could bo said to have won It was practical an nihilation for both Two magnificent fleets of modern war vessels gone ab solutely gone a quarter of a billion dollars in battleships and thousands of brave fellows dead only to satisfy the bickerings of diplomatssacrifices to foolish notions of honor To LeFevre the operations of the Cen trifugal were a triumph for France and he was enthusiastic in his delight But I cared little one way or the other I was tired of it all Life had been too strenuous for me I wanted quiet for a while and naturally my thoughts turned to Aimee my sweetheart Was she safe LeFevre Insisted that I come with him to his home but I refused Turn ing to the east we made our way rapidly to the French coast Here we settled to earth In the open country and after bidding LeFevre adieu I rose again and made my way east I had but one thought now that the battle was over and that thought I was putting into ac tion My objective was Bethel where I knew my love awaited me But had I known what else awaited me at Bethel I should perchance have gone in another direction To be concluded next week Maxine Elliott Maxine Elliott who

sup nly or the water for a great city remarkable results are announced from the application of a new method of destroying microorganisms in water which was discovered about a year ago by Drs Moore and Kellerman of the Bureau of Plant Industry at Washing ton It consists simply in dissolving a certain quantity of copper sulphate in the water to be purified Fortunately the dilution can be made so large that no deleterious effects are produced up on the water intended for drinking purposes One part of copper sulphate to eight million parts of water is the proportion generally used and it is pointed out that in order to obtain any effect of copper from such a mix ture a man would have to drink forty gallons of the water During the latter part of 1904 more than fifty sources of water supply in the United States were treated by this method with gratifying success Not only are dangerous bacteria thus de stroyed but the green growths that fre quently choke up small ponds are also eliminated Most important of all is the promise that by this treatment the germs of typhoid fever may be entirely removed from any source of water supply In the case of a lake or pond the chemical is applied by suspending bags filled with copper sulphate over the side of a boat while the boat is rowed about In two or three days the cop ner is entirely precipitated from the water but the beneficial effects of the treatment last for weeks or months It has been suggested that this dis covery may raise the question whether after all our mothers were not right although they did not understand the

MITCHELL In these days of so much talk about pure foods and with the protective legislation by Congress on the subject the bulletin of the Bureau of Chem istry Department of Agriculture on Some Forms of Food Adulterations and Simple Methods for Their Detec tion is very timely Since the middle of the last century the subject of food adulteration las attracted a constantly increasing amount of attention In this country however very little was done in this line until about 1880 In 1881 the Division of Chemistry began the study of food adulteration and since then has given a great deal of time to the subject Since 1898 the origin and place of manufacture of the foods studied by the Bureau have been care fully noted and special attention also given to imported foods In 1883 the first practicable food inspection law in the United States was WINNING PAIR BROWN TOULOUSE GOOSE Fort Wayne GEESEIGROUP CHINESE GEESE enacted in Massachusetts Since that time other States have enacted and enforced food laws until at the pres ent time twentyfive States are seri ously attempting regulate the char acter and quality of the foods sold in their markets In three additional States laws relating to the purity of dairy products are enforced and in several others a beginning has been made Food Regulation Abroad Food legislation has received much attention abroad and the more ad vanced foreign countries have effective food laws and enforce them rigidly Tne subject of the purity of foods is more widely studied in the United States now than at any previous time The people as a whole are better in formed on the subject than ever before and there is a constantly increasing demand for definite information In response to a very large number of inquiries regarding the matter the bul letin of the Bureau of Chemistry has been prepared as a popular statement regarding the nature and extent of food adulteration and includes simple tests by which the housekeeper or retail dealer may determine some of the more prevalent forms of adultera tion practiced The demand for information on this subject is now very general and as is often the case when public interest is deeply aroused there is an unfor tunate tendency toward exaggeration which frequently amounts to sensa tionalism Such an attitude is of course to be deplored and unless it is checked must sooner or later react unfavorably It is not unusual to asIpoisonedpoisoners Such characterizations are frequently exaggerations to the point of untruth Deleterious substances are in many cases added to foods At the same time the word poison has a very strong and distinct significance and should not be applied to anyone of the substances ordinarily added to foods except in the sense that they are harmful The word poisoner signi fies a person who intentionally and de liberately administers an article in tended to result fatally or least very disastrously to health The Juggling of Words During recent years there has been ia tendency to confuse the minds of many by an incorrect use of certain words frequently used in the discussion of foods It is the policy of some man ufacturers to limit the word adulter ated to foods to which have been added substances of lower value than the foods themselves with the intention of increasing the weight or vol ume This limitation is certainly not justified by the English language nor by the facts and such a restriction of the term is entirely unwarranted The word adulterated properly describes a food to which any noncondimental foreign substance not properly con stituting a portion of the food has been added The fact that the added substance maybe at times of a greater commercial value than the food itself bas no bearing on the question Con versely the word pure is properly applicable to foods that are unmixed with any foreign substance It may be wholesome or unwholesome but this property is not indicated by the word pure or adulterated This definition Is not of course complete The claim Is made by some manu facturers that the addition of a pre servative to food does not properly constitute adulteration because the preservatives added are of greater com mercial value than the foods them selves Such a claim however seems to be notLing but a play upon words For instance benzoate of soda has a greater commercial value weight for weight than tomatoes and the claim has been made that for that reason its addition to tomatoes actually increases the expense of the preparation of tomato catsup As a matter of fact however it permits the tomato pulp to be prepared in large quantities and preserved in barrels in a much less expensive way than can be done without its use It is evident therefore that employedisto which it is added the addition is really made for the purpose of cheapening the product It is not for this A OF CHINESE FIRST PRIZE OF BROWN at St to at reason that such a substance is prop erly called an adulterant however but because it is an added foreign sub stance and is neither a food nor a condiment These definitions cannot be emphasized too strongly Adulterated foods are not necessarily unwholesome bulletin published by the De partment gives in detail the various kinds of adulterants and additions to the ordinary beverages and foods used in ordinary consumption and also simple means of detecting the presence of the foreign matter contained in them The pamphlet should occupy a prominent place in every household library and can be obtained upon ap plication to the Division of Publica tions Department of Agricultu- res Feeds Fowls Automatically A farmer in Oregon who owns a small poultry farm has devised a novel duringhiserected troughs to hold food for the hens and these are connected by wire with an alarm clock in the farmhouse When the owner leaves home in the morning he sets the alarm clock at the hour of feeding the chickens and by an ingenious arrangement when the time arrives the alarm goes off the connecting wire releases the troughs and the food is spread before the hungry fowls Oklahoma UfO w WatQrFowl in New England Broiler ducks are grown by the thou sands in several localities of Pennsyl vania New Jersey and Long Island as well as elsewhere the greatest num ber however coming from the first named sections One farm alone dur ing the year just passed marketed 37 000 broiler ducks from its plant But New England is the home or breeding grounds of the best quality of market geese sold in this country The most careful the most determined and the most successful breeders and handlers of high quality market geese are scat tered from Rhode Island to the end of MassachusettsThe common or gray goose has been largely displaced by the state ly Embden Toulouse African and China species The Embden and the Toulouse are the result of a union of the efforts of the French and the Eng lish The African the Hong Kong and the China geese came perhaps from the Asiatic countries Recently at the Boston Poultry Show was exhibited the finest lot of geese that have been shown in this country for all time One pair of Embden pure white geese reached the enormous weight of 83 pounds and the Toulouse gray market geese almost equaled them in size Next to these in quality is the African so much valued for the rearing of what are known as the mongrel geese The white Embden said to have originated from the visit of a swan to some of the commoner flock of a town of the same name on the Continent have been carefully bred and selected until they are very large handsome white geese which seem to be valued first as a truebred variety for the producing of feathers and market poultry The Toulouse that came from France are fully their equal in every way except that the feathers are gray or mixed with gray instead of pure white What is known as the wild or Can ada goose mated with an African pro duces the mongrel goose so highly valued in the Eastern markets from Thanksgiving through Christmas times When the Canada gander and the Afri can goose become properly mated they will be constant one to the other to the end of their existence growing each year one or two broods of mongrel geese that are ready for market during Thanksgiving and Christmas times and dress to a weight at this age heavier than either of the parent pair The quality of the meat is excellent the price obtained ranging from 275 to 4 each according to the season and the quality and finish of the individual specimens themselves TauIlousehighpriced geese for the winter mar kets No one of these of the better qualities is ever sold for less than 28 tc 30 cents per pound and there is a ready sale for all of them offered at these prices In addition to these thousands of geese are gathered from as far north as Nova Scotia down through all the States of the Western part of the coun WHITE EMBDEN GEESE largefatteningyards are large plants with lots some thing like the stock yards of the large cities only smaller in size The geese are placed in the enclosures and fed for heavyweight and fine finish to be dressed for market As many as 10 000 geese are gathered at one or two points in Massachusetts and fed in this way for the winter markets It takes several weeks to properly finish them and new supplies are constantly coming in to replace those that are sold off The profitable demand for geese of this kind extends over a period of from nine to twelve weeks begin ning just before Thanksgiving and ending in January No attempt has yet been made in this country for the excessive fattening of geese such as is carried on in Ger many those so fattened with us being only prepared to a finish for roasting nor has fattening or feeding for the excessive size of the livers ever gained any consideration here The major per cent of all the geese brought into the markets for general consumption are sold and the demand for them r Bunion Comfort Guaranteed No Pay if we Fail FREE TRIAL FOR

kindred products will necessitate the bringing under cultivation of an addi tional 150000000 acres of land and it is estimated that we have only 108 000000 acres available for cultivation Of course
