Engineers Report tot CongressCanal to Be Com 1 pleted in Six Years uf Washington Feb 18Any attacks made hereafter on the lock type oti the Panama canal according to tha lj opinion expressed by President Roosevelt in a message transmitting l to congress the report recently made by the engineers who recently viS ielectattack upon the policy of building any canal Ptall V The report in Mr Roosevelts opln tion shows in clearest fashion that the congress was wise in the position it took and that it would be an in excusable folly to change from the proposed lock canal to a sea level canaloI commend to you he says to con i gress the most careful consideration of the report They show that the only criticism that can be made of the work on the isthmus is that therj has sometimes been almost an excess of caution in providing against possible trouble As to the Gatun dam itself they show that not only is tha dam safe but that on the whole the plan already adopted would make It necessarily high and strong and ac t cordingly they recommend that the height be reduced by 20 feet which change in the plans I have l corCiI ingly directed President Roosevelt says the ten gr I neers who made the report are 6f all the mon in their profession within or without the United States the J men who are on the whole best user rtionsThe engineers report thatas a Gatun earth dam was the central point of discussion they gave it uh der instructions from Mi Taft first consideration in the light of all evl dente and they add that the type of dam now under construction is one 0which meets with our unanimous sp proval They say they are satisfied that t there will be no dangerous 6c objeo tionable seepage through the mater ials under the base of the dam nor are they so soft as to be liable to be pushed asides by the weight oftIifproposed dam so as to cause dangers ous settlement We are also satisfied that the materials available and which it is proposed to use are suit able and can be readily placed toy form a tight stable and permanent dam Dams arid locks lock gates and all other engineering structures Involved in the lock canal project are Iea sible and safe according to the eiK gineers and they can be depended upon to perform with certainty their respective functions They report that they do not find any occasion for changing the type of canal thatf has been adopted A change to see level plan at the present time would add greatly to the cost and time of construction without compensating i advantages either In capacity of the canal or in safety of navigation and hence would be a public misfortune They declare that t eUmost prac tical question in the construction of the Gatun dam is the possible slipping and sliding of the materials un derneath and in the body of the dam In regard to this question they have t reached the conclusion that the design upon which the work is now be ing prosecuted abundantly fulfills they required degree of stability andgoes far beyond the limits of what would be regarded as sufficient and safe Inu any less important structure We see no reason they add why the canal should not be completed as estimated by the chief engineer by 4 January i 1915 in fact it seem that a somewhat earlier completion is probable if all goes well Considering the cost and time of construction of a sea level canal as compared with the lock type they hold that most of the factors which have operated to increase the cost of the lock canal would operate with similar effect to Increase the cost of the sea level canal arid at the pre ent time there are additional factors of even greater importance to be con sidered as affecting the time orom pletion andcost of a sea Jev lcanalw One of these they find in the GamboLI dam if work on which were started as soon as possible they declare it could not be completed until after the time required for the coil pletion of the lock canal 4j Goes Crazy Over Work Mansfield QFebJ8cIlPUS ti hajre

advisable at the present time because most house Second Floor Plan keepers who do not use coal depend on gas for cooking and the gas range should be connected with a flu to car ry off the moisture generated by the burners and the steam and odors from cookingThe Is that we will soon do all cooking with electricity The indications certainly point that way but more improvements are needed to make it a complete success and to bring the cost down within the reach of the ordinary family In this plan the chimney is there for use if wanted and the chances are that it will be used for a good many years to come It Is usually the newly married who want all the uptodate fads while the older people prefer to retain that which they know to be good until they are sure of something that has proven itself better A splendid feature of this house is the big dining room which will natur ally be used as a living room Later perhaps a summer kitchen will be added and the kitchen used for a dining room Even a more marked change may be made by substituting the new electrical cooking apparatus which some people think is destined to combine the kitchen and the dining room In fact at the present time a good many families are making the coffee on the dining table by means of an electric heater How to Keep Young- It is true that the neophobla of the old has Its cause in mental attitude rather than in physical decay It Is not that the mental power is less but it is natural for a man to rely on the thinking he did in his twenties and to refuse to reopen questions he settled half a lifetime ago This atrophy of thought can be avoided if the danger is foreseen and a man deliberately forms the habit of breaking thought habits It can be es caped if a man recognizes that he Is borne on a stream of social change and that Instead of trusting to the perspective in which things appeared in his youth he must look and look againThen there are searchers skilled In the advancement of knowledge who never conclude their education who become accustomed to disowning their yesterdays and building on tomor rows who remainprogressive through out life and in their riper years rich in the garnered

that lived among the hills with the usual precipices and dangerous declivities and from these conditions It would appear there res- Ulted its slowness and sure footedness The donkeys ancestors were not then so liable to sudden attacks from wild beasts and snakes Moreover sudden and wild starts would have been pos Itively dangerous to the donkeys for bears Consequently they learned to avoid the characteristic trick of the horse The habit of eating thistles peculiar to the donkey seems also to have been inherited from itsancestors In the dry barren localities they in habited there was often very little food therefore they learned to eat the hard dry and even prickly plants and undergrowth when nothing else pre tented itself New York Tribune THE MONTEREY CYPRESS Found In Its Wild State In Only Two Spots In the World One of the most interesting and pic turesque trees in the world as well as one of the most ancient is the Cupres sue macracarps or Monterey cypress Its native habitat is extremely restrict ed for it is found in Its wild state in only two spots in the whole wide world on the edge of a grove of conifers stretching for a few miles between the bay of Monterey and the bay of Carmel the latter of which bears a striking resemblance In outline and color to its prototype In the Holy Land and in a similar spot near Pescadero a little town lying on the coast between Monterey and San Francisco The Monterey grove consists of only a doz en or two cypresses of large size and most striking appearance Their trunks are massive and wrinkled with hoary age while their boughs gnarled and awayInoble trees are limited to the rocky wind beaten shore on which some of them have but a precarious hold Hemmed between the slowly encroach ing ocean on one hand and a pine for est on

moving phrases about God Then he goes on to say that he is a ilnner he is proud to say that he is a sinner Then he asks for his daily bread He has it and he can always ask for it when he has It Then

wonderful Illustration of the power of advertising It is the means that all who have succeeded have employed It is an olds saying that the hair of the dog isc good for the bite One of the surest ways for the merchants to combat the competition of these concerns which catch trade by advertising is to advertise rightly People who buy from mail order houses would hardly pay the same prices for the goods if exposed on the counters of the homeI store If the big houses sold goods at the low prices which they claim their profits would not run up into the mil lions yearly The rural delivery can be made to serve the local dealer as well as the faroff catalogue house The merchant should not be afraid to do a little advertising yes a good lot of advertising for if It is done rightly it will bring a greater percentage of profit than money Invested in any other way In business Perhaps there are 400 or 500 farmers in the terri tory of a certain town For a few dollars the home printer will print suffi dent circulars to reach them all It will cost one oent each to mail them Place an advertisement in your home t paper Merchants in different lilies in the same towa can get up a joint circular

SirIsee by an item in the Western Publisher that you have installed a Cox Duplex press If the statement is correct I would be I greatly obliged to you if you will Jdndly send me a copy of the first is sneof The News printed on the new press If 39U have no copies of this issue left please send one of later date Aan ex publisher I have some curiosity to know how it is possible to install a press of the Duplex make inn city like Winchester unless it is a fdry7 tOwn and growing rap Idly in population Wishing you abundant success in your new vent ure J remain Very truly E s SMASHEYv When Mr Smashey says as an expublisher I have some curiosijy to know how it is possible to instilla press of the Duplex make in a city like Winchester he evidently does not know this city He realizes what a Duplex means and that there are very few if any cities of this size that could support so expensive a press The Duplex press is usually the third step taken by a new daily newspaper First a Campbell such as The News is using now does service 1several years Theji when it is found impossible to print any longer on that a faster press is secured such as a Miehle Still bothsideS of the paper have to be printed on different runs and there is still much delay in the publication And finally when the circulation has grown to 3000 or 4000 the jump is made to the Duplex which is the hOst press made for any paper with a circulation up to 6000 or 8000 a day The News had faith in Winchester and its future The support already given to the paper has been so flat t ring and the circulation had begun to climbs rapidly that we took the plunge and sunk over 7000 ofour good dollars in the press motor arid accessories JI t f We are satisfied we have done the v wise thlngV The Duplex will last for the next twenty years and handle all the circulation that we may hope to secure It is up to the merchants amenof this city to prove tons that we did wisely in bavin r ifaithin tie citys future Several ofj the leading firms have not yet contracted to use space in The News In conversation withone of thmerchants the other day he reiterated the statement which he aaade at the tune The News stat4t- hat they would not advertise until The News proved that it wouldnot take outside advertisements or words to that effect The News has now been running over your months and has refused many advertisements from Lexing ton and other places and some of them in the same line of business as this gentleman What better proof Scan be asked than that If a merchant is interested in the upbuilding of this city he knows that a daily paper is one of tIle best meanS to that end and should therefore en courage itThe News asks no max to advertise unless he is getting his moneys worth We are not running a charity bazaar here but a business enterprise But if the columns of this paper are good advertising me diums it should be used by all the local merchants Now is the time that The News Wants and needs advertising not six months or a year hence Later ev erybody will be glad to get in these columns if they have anything to sell for they will then appreciate their value But when everything is out go and comparatively little coming in is the time that advertising is ap preciated We said to this gentleman that if we went to Lexington arid secured the advertisements of firms competing with him he would probably be one of the first to cry out against our course and say that we were hurting the business of Winchester But he for one is not encouraging us in our present course The News is easily the best adver tising medium in Winchester It stands in a class by itself Week lies and circulars and bills ofall kinds cannot be spoken of in the same breath They are mediums forth sinali town which cannot afford anything better The press run today is 1600 The highest it reached which was 1700 was within three weeks after the first number was printed In that time we had exceeded our capacity and were obliged to take our solicitor off the roadTe have done nothing since to secure circulation feeling that it was wiser to wait until we were in a position to handle itYe had expect ed thatwe would lose 200 or 300 who had taken the paperat first through curiosity and that our circulation would probably drop back to 1300 or 1400 hundred But it has kept up far better than we expected And because of that fact andalso because we had barely touched the field in out first campaign for circulation we t now believe that when the Duplex ig in operation we shall easily reach 2500 or 3000 within the preseut year ANNOUNCEMENTS For Mayor We are authorized to announce- J A HUGHES as a candidate for Mayor subject to the action of the Democratic party We are authorized to announce H T STROTHER as a

CIRCUS CHILDREN Tho Making of Acrobats Begins at an Early Age s Itls nothing unusual for the larger circuses to cprry thirty aTd forty chil dren ranging all the way from mere babies to boys and girls of fifteen and sixteen years of age The majority are traveling with their parents both the father and mother doing daily duty In the ring and while often they are trained to follow In the steps of their elders they are seldom allowed to per form in public It Is a common belief among circus men that the performer whose training Is not started until after the age of six will seldom make a distinctive record Following the afternoon show I often saw groups of boys some of whom could not have been over four and five years old practicing rudimentary somersaults and hand springs while their parents looked on with a gratified smile These were the families of the circus aristocracy who treasure the records of their ancestors with the pride of a son in his fathers sword and who see no more

that the domestic spoon probably owes Its origin to the shell Shells of the mussel scallop and oyster it is believed were used in pre- hIstoric times as spoons and ladles the handle being formed of a piece of wood split at one end to hold the shell firmly Some savage nations make similar spoons up to the present day and the old Highland custom of offering whisky In a shell has been probably handed down from genera tion to generation for untold ages Westman In his History of the Spoon gives Roman specimens which are very simple in designsomethIngl- ike silver caddy spoonsand are much shorter in the handle than those from Egypt Those for common use were generally made of bronze iron or brass They clearly show how the shell shape was retained and their marine origin is also preserved in the name of a spooncochlearederivedf- rom cochlea a shell or cockle The Celtic spoon also closely resembled the shell in form though made of bronze The horns of various animals such as the ox bison and ram were often used as drinking cups and as the material was found suitable It was sometimes used with wood Ivory metal etc for spoon making Hence the ancient expression To spoil a horn to make a

is to be made at once by request of the Prison Commission and the numerous charges which have been made against the prison management will be examined by M H lhatcher State Inspector and Ex aminer The Prison Commission yesterday cane on Governor Willson and askedm lira to direct that the examination be made at once as they were tired of bearing criticism Governor Willson told the commission that their request would be complied with Charges Have Been Made The commission told Governor Willson that certain charges had been made by former employes of the com mission and these charges had never been officially investigated The commission sand it courted a full investigation of all it Wad done and of the manageemnt of tlC penal institutions- in the past and resentIIn the was dressed to the Governor asking for the investigation the commission gave a complete history of the frank- fort penitentiary and has some in cresting facts to show The penitentiary formerly cost the State about i 100000 a year but under the present manugemeianstein the pen itentiaries have carriedover und above all expenses a total of 39 32609 in the last year Statement of Commission Among other things the commis sion in it ing letter to the Governor ask an investigation said Our reason for waking this re quest is there are those who moved by a f ltngof retalliatioiiare seeking for their own selfish purposes to impress upon the public mind a the penitentiaries are improperly requiredsexcessive that the punishment inflicted for breaches of discipline ruel and inhuman that the m of the Board are more concerned for the welfare of the contractors hay ng contracts in the pententaii s than they are for the convicts them selves slid that the entire managedment is not in accord with letter or spirit of the law liThe members of this Board and those entrusted with actual manage met of the respective institutions enow that noire of these charges are even in a small degree true and know that they emanate from former em ployes of the institutions discharg ed from the service yet you and the Dublic generally do not know that they are not true and probably do not know the motive prompting the utterance of those falsehoods How ever our own denial of trice truthful ess of tbese accusations is weak tined somewhat by reason of ou tfclfiiiteV ta How Work Has Been pone The commission here gives a his tory cf the prison maimvvrent of the Slate since the boginnin anil lu wrt how the prisoners from bcin eI source of expense ha gnuluiilly been put on a paying basis and gives the reason for this as follows This result has been attained by applying as far as lay within our power business methods to the man agement of the institutions by keeping the inmates well clad well fed in good health providing for them comfortable and sanitary quarters in which to sleep and work bv keeping the work shops well lighted heated and ventilated in the winter and cool in the summer and by requiring of the inmates an amount and quality of work remotely approximating that done by free laborers similarly em ployed whose incentive to labor is the reweges they receive and the pride they take in doing well what they haveHo do Enforce Good Order Becauseof these conditions it is the constant effort of thc member of this Board and its employes at the two prisons to maintain goodorder and discipline The manner minwhich this is done is by explaining to each exflstand that the law allows him acorn mutation of seven days on each month fprvgood conduct It is ex plained that if after he has served an appropriate part of Ills sentence and if By his conduct he has ddmomistraledo the prison au thorities that Be has reformed and iliatifreleased he will makea law abiding and useful citizen the Board of Prison Commissioners may paroles I him that if he persistently disobeys the rules of the prison punishment ofsome sort awaits him EaflK individual case must be Create by tne prison authorities in the way the temperament of the man demands His sense of right and his pride are appealed to He isvper suadedr and jf these methods foivbor recting delinquencies fail then as last

the result we be lice you desire is that the public be fully and authoritatively informed whether there exists or has existed the penitentiaries either cruel or inI human punishment whether the bor required of the inmates is excessive tirhohier the contractors have paid for all the convicts it was their duty to pay for under the contracts whether Ire have properly accounted for all the moue we shouldshave accounted for whether the convicts are properly fed clothed and gear tired whether the pententailies rein proper sanitary condition and whether the officials and employes of the penitentiaries have performed thqjr duties as required by law We shall shortly lay before you justtpassed discussing more in detail the matters here mentioned Awaiting your reply we are Very

birth but the state of her figure her complexion and her hair which determines what she should or should not wear When certain nasty aboutjthe back gets middleaged and the hips aggressive it is folly to continue to wear what was becoming in happier days But these sad things do not always follow close upon the heels of birthdays One woman may acquire them at 30 or 35 another not till she is 50 or never at all So it is impossi ble to make one definite law to say At 30 or 35 or 40 or 45 thou shalt do or not do so and so and it is just as foolish for young looking 45 to wear old looking clothes as for old looking 45to stick to the garb of the youth But there are of course certain things that are suitable all along time line and into which the question of age and freshness need not enter
