GRASS BANKS FOR CANAL
Several Thousand Pounds of Seed Sent
to Panama For the Experiment.
By the time the Panama canal is
opened the ships may sail through
terraced green lawns instead of the
bare yellow earth slopes now in evi
dence, says Peru Today. The reason
is not altogether an aesthetic one.
It is believed that seeding the slop
ing sides of the canal through the cuts
with a strong grass may prevent the
slides now so frequent and will re
duce the wearing down by the tropical
rains. Pittier, an expert botanist
Srom the Smithsonian institution, has
charge of an attempt to test this the
ory, for which purpose the agricul
tural department at Washington has
sent down several thousand pounds of
Even though it be impossible to
prevent entirely the occasional big
slides, it seems almost certain that this
measure will result in a great saving
by holding the ground from starting
except under great pressure and by re
ducing the erosion which brings down
JI tremendous amount of earth in the
course of the verr.

In Schenectady the Socialists elected
as mayor Dr. George R. Lunn, a cler

amounting to two-thirds of the total

In the western states the Socialist
vote was also heavy. In Columbus, O.,

NATIONAL FLOWER UP AGAIN.
Clubwomen Will Ask Congress to Se
lect the Mountain Laurel.
The National Federation of Women's
Clubs has decided that the United
States has gone too long without a
national flower, and clubwomen of
the country have been asked to sign
a petition asking congress to select
the mountain laurel.
When the movement has been in
dorsed by the clubs the federation
will appoint a committee to present
the petition to congress and work for
the passage of an act.
The mountain laurel is a small flow
er containing the red and white colors
of the United States flag and unfold
ing in almost a perfect star.

Heavy Gun Firing Proved Fata)
to Pets and Caused Change.
ONLY A FEW ARE LEFT NOW.
The Louisiana Has a Goat and the
Vermont a Boston Terrier and a Cat,
While the Ohio Has a Big Black
Bear. Mascots in the United States navy
are on the decline. Of the 102 war
ships that participated in the grand re
view at New York not half of them
possessed mascots. There was a time
when many United States battleships
resembled Noah's ark. There was not
one mascot to a ship, but seemingly
a mascot to every member of the crew.
The fo'c'sle was like the menagerie
tent of a circus. Trained pigs, goats,
dogs of various breeds, cats of vari
ous color, bears, roosters and other
specimens of the animal kingdom de
lighted the hearts of the jolly tars.
JJut there has come a change
In some cases the commanders of
the ships are opposed to mascots on
the ground that they area nuisance.
On other ships the surgeon objects,
claiming that dogs and cats are breed
ers and carriers of disease. But the
chief reason for the passing of the
sailors' pets is that the terrific concus
sion aboard the big boats during tar
get practice is fatal to mascots.
But there are mascots still Often
down between decks, in a quiet corner
seldom visited by officers, the men
have secreted a cat or a dog.
The Connecticut, flagship of Rear
Admiral Osterhaus, is minus a mas
On the Michigan the men have two
mascots in the shape of a Boston bull
and an English bull. Between the two
dogs and Seaman J. G. Faulhaber, the
end man of the ship's minstrel troupe,
the men of the Michigan are amply
supplied with mascots. Seaman W. J.
Hagmayer, the champion buck and
wing dancer of the Atlantic fleet, is
also one of the cherished treasures of
this big ship.
Aboard the North Dakota the men
tion of the word mascot brings pain,
for Zip, the white dog mascot of the
ship, is no more. He was lost at Nor
folk a short time ago, and the men
have not had the heart to replace him
The Louisiana's mascot is an able
bodied goat, kept between decks in
the bos'n's locker, a workroom about
four feet square. Billy Butts is the
goat's name, and Billy Butts is the
pet of every man jack aboard the Lou
isiana. Cockswain N. T. Nightingale
is the official goat keeper.
Aboard the Vermont are two mas
cots. One is a Boston terrier and the
other a cat. There is nothing extraor
dinary about either beyond the fact
that they are sincerely revered by ali
the enlisted men aboard the huge war
ship. Chief Bos'n's Mate Payne de
clares that they are the most wonder
ful animals in all the world, and he
will lay great stress on the fact that
they sleep together and never scratch,
bite, spit or growl at each other.
Aboard the Ohio is the biggest mas
cot in the fleet. The beast of good
omen is none other than a huge black
bear, with shaggy coat and cold tip
ped nose, who likes nothing better
than to playfully paw a sailorman or
give a backhander that sends his hu
man admirer scrambling in the scup
pers. The bear has half a dozen
names. Some call him Teddy, others
call him Sam.
The Wisconsin has for her mascot a
kangaroo This kangaroo is said to
be the greatest mascot that the Amen
can navy has ever possessed. It will
don boxing gloves and make the ship's
champion slugger look like a babe in
arms in the presence of Jack Johnsoa
Ban on Those Depicting Men and Wo
A crusade against objectionable post
cards has been started by Postmaster
D. A. Campbell of Chicago, who ap
pointed censors at all substations.
The three chief kinds of pictures or
dered barred from distribution are:
Men and women kissing.
Women in abbreviated costume.
"Not one postal card in a hundred
bearing the picture of an animal is fit
to be exhibited in public" said the
"For each objectionable card which
is delivered," said Mr. Campbell, "the
superintendent of the substation will
receive ten demerits, or one point.
When he has received forty-one points
off his rating his salary will be re
duced. When his rating falls below
thirty points he will be discharged."
