PROPAGATING THE AFRICAN
ZEBU
It has long been Hie aim of tho
colonial government In tropical Africa
to replace If possible the regimen of
unappetizing tinned meats with an
abundance of fresh beef and milk
Experiments to this end have been In
cessant for over ten years and the
progress made has been a minor In
fluence in reducing the frightful mor
tality that formerly reduced the ranks
of white men III the colonial service
Many animals of the best European
breeds have been Imported to Improve
the native cattle with the result that
their progeny have supplied a pal
atablo quality of beef and a greatly
Increased quantity of milk It Is
found however that the Imported an
imals do not thrive very well in the
now environment and that the mixed
breeds are susceptible to diseases that
carry them off The prospects of
filling tho need In this mannor arc
therefore not regarded as bright
Another experiment from which sat
Isfactory results are hoped Is now
In progress Why may not the supe
rior variety of the cattle zebus of
hot Indian thrive In tropical Africa
and greatly Improve the native
stock Tho Idea was suggested bv
the success of thin Innovation In the
warmer states of Brazil whore the
zebu was introduced twentvflvc years
ago to the treat Improvement of tho
native cattle Millions of the mixed
breeds now thriving In that republic I
arc among the great resources of
Brazil Wo are apt to think of the
zebu only as a riding and draft ani
mal hut It Is of great importance also
for meat and milk One of tio fin
est varieties for example the Nclloro
zebu Is noted both for tho excellence
of Its flesh and the abundance and
quality of Its milk The yield of milk
per cow ls fully twenty quarts a day
and Karl Hagenbach tho wellknown
importer of tropical wild animals says
that the content of butler fat Is fully
equal to that of the best Gorman
breeds
Within the last two vear N > Unro
zebu bulls have hcon Introduced into
the German colonies of Togo Came
roon and East Africa both Mr Hagen
bock and by the Royal Agricultural
Institute of Hallo They are being I
crossed with the native stock and
there Is every expectation that both
the Imported animals and the mixed
breeds will thrive In Africa for the
East Indians who have settlod In East
Africa brought with them zebu steers
that have long done good service
there as draft and riding animals
The experiment will also be tried of
crowing the mixed zebu and native
cattlo with FOUIO of tho best European
stock In tho hope that a superior ani
mal may be evolved which will be
practically suited to African condi
tions
Tho day is doubtless coming when
good beef and plenty of milk may be
obtained In nearly every part of trop
ical Africa In many ways we aro wit
nessing everY year new phases of the
transformation of that great continent
Which will make It Ion before this
century oiids one of the tfrcat produc
ers of wealth Now York Sun

LAST SPIKE PICTURE I
The New York Times published I
what It calls The True Story of tho I
Driving of the Last Splko when the
Union Pacific railroad mot the Cen I
tral Pacific at Promontory tho rails
wore connected and tho last spike
driven It also publishes a newspa
per copy of Thomas Hills picture of
tho scone and Mr Hills story of his
troubles In painting tho picture and
mutilating It after It was first paint
ed by order of Leland Stanford
The story is not at all complimen
tary to Governor Stanoford but wo
suspect that It Is true for It corres
ponds with more than one act of his
life The story ns given tit the time
vas that when the rails were finally
connected Mr Durant of the Union
Pacific drove a sliver spike and Gov
ernor Stanford a spike of gold and
so Mr Hill said the picture was first
painted The picture also contained
the likenesses of 100 people the faces
of 70 having been painted from pho
tographs
It was at last outlln6d and Govern
or Stanford wont to see It Mr Hill I
was a famous artist at first as a por I
trait painter then he commenced
painting scenery Ills Yoaemlte Val
ley Waverly Oaks Mount Taco
ma Tho Mulr Glacier and other
great paintings attest his merit Tho
Driving of the Last Spike he Intend
ed as a masterpiece
When Stanford saw the picture out
lined he was not satisfied at all Mr
Durant was represented Stanfords
side each with a hammer at which
Stanford In his most Impressive tone
said
Nobody has a hammer but me
you have given him too prominent a
place
Hill said ho spoke of McCrclllsh
for years editor of tho Alta Califor
nia having a place With flashing
eyes Stanford asked excitedly Have
you got that man in It To which
Hill responded Yes and It will not
be well to leave him out being the
editor of a paper or he will annihi
late me1 to which Stanford replied
I will annihilate you If ho Is In
Then it was decided thai Stanfords
brother A B Stanford should be put
In the place saved for McCrelllsh
Then Stanford ordered his enemies
relegated to he roar and his friends
put In front some of whom wore not
present at all
At first Stanford complimented the
picture warmly and said to the art
ist that ho could almost Imagine him
self on the spot Then he began to
criticise and ordered Strotbrldgo to be
put In Durants place Strotbrldgo
constructed the road He ordered Dr
Hnrkncss and SUllman changed He
first ordered Towne taken out alto
gethor but on Hills pleading consent
ed that he might be placed In the
background He finally ordered Du
rants picture placed where Mrs Stan
ford stood and Mrs Stanford by his
side Ho ordered out Collons pic
ture and added You can placo Sena
tor Sargent there Years after tho
road was finished Mark Hopkins the
bralnest one of the Big Four said
that tho road was made possible by
Senator Sargent i that the company
would be glad to reward him but he
would never accept anything and yet
Stanford with his monoy beat Sar
gent for United States senator when
Sargent wanted the place
At lost Stanford would not take the

MADERO NOT TYPE OF MAN TO
HEAD REVOLUTION
Senor Juan Pedro Dldapp former
Mexican consul at Norfolk who re
signed that position evcral months
ago on account of political differences
with President Diaz and his adminis
tration arrived In Washington yester
day from a two weeks tour of e
co Sonor Dldapp who Is at the Met
ropolitan stated that the revolution
ary movement In Mexico so far as ho
was able to observe Is not a thing to
deserve serious consideration by the
government
Madcro the leader of the Revolu
tion forces Senor Dldapp said Is
not the man to bend cuch a movement
Maderos private life as well as his
political principles are not such as to
n the real leaders of th anti
administration While I will admit
that the antiDiaz element in Mexico
IB a serious proposition yet a mau
of the Madero typo is not the kind of
a person to cryfilallzd till sentiment
In faor of n gigantic evolution
Should the revolting element bo
led by such a man s General Revcs
then the present administration might
have cause for alarm But men of the
Reyes typo are not willing to war
against Diaz at this time While It
Is admitted by them that the adminis
tration Is not all It should be It Is
also realized that Diaz has done a
wonderful work for the Mexican peo
ple and for Mexico In general So long
as Diaz Is alive I do not believe there
Is cause for alarm
Madero Is one of the wealthiest
men in Mexico lIe Is a Socialist so
far as preaching Is concerned but
when it comes to putting Into prac
tice his teachings he Is not there The
15000 persons whom ho employs on
his estates were unwilling to support
him In his diminutive revolution In
every other part of Mexico laborers
of the same class as those employed
by Maduro receive 25 cenls a day for
their work The Manure employes ro
colve only 12 12 cents a day
There is hardly a man who has
lived on the Madura estates any
length of time who IB not deeply In
debt to the owner Thlu merely showd
what kind of man Is the leader of the
revolutionary movement
Tho better class of Mexicans an
tagonistic to the present admlnfstra
lion did not support Madero In his
revolutionary work They realized
that a civilian could not snide such
a largo undertaking They also knev
that even Jt Mudcro were successful
with his revolution he could not fill

TEMPERAMENTAL DAUGHTER OF
THE CABINET
Not to be hasty about It the fact Is
that Europe having chiefly her ago
and her art to crow over like a worn
out coquette who prides herself on
her makeup certainly ioes hate to
admit that anything artistic can come
out of America
And especially now In singing
Previously Europe wanted to know
who read American books She Htop
jiocl asking that when nearly nil her
magazines and newspapers took to
pirating our novels and short storlen
Then she wanted to know who bought
American pictures She has stopped
asking that too since American paint
ers have boon getting higher prices
than the English and the French dare
askBut
But she still Inquires who listens
to American singer although she has
been driven even there from in
trenchment after Intrenchmont her
first query on that score Which
of them has tho finish having been
answered by Emma Eames The noxt
one Which has the Intelligence
was effectively replied to by Gerald
Ino Farrar Then they wanted to know
whore the dramatic singer way and
Mary Garden took off most of her
clothes and did Salome So that
left them only the stock question of
the Jealous rival Where Is the tem
perament
Well maybe handsome Flora Wil
son the temperamental daughter of
tho cabinet and by the way the only
daughter of Secretary Wilson of the
department of agriculture Is the ans
wer
werEven
Even overparticular Europe couldnt
ask a handsomer one
When you become president or sec
retary of the treasury or senator or
doortender at the White House the
constitution guarantees you right to
any of them if youre nativeborn and
to all but one If youre not you may
have the follclty of seeing Miss Flora
Wilson at some of the official func
tions that make Washington society
such a hotbed of roses oud thorns
And If you happen not to care for
any of these jobs but prefer to plod
along combining railroads or ped
dling chestnuts as your tastes and tal
ents incline you may still have a
chance to see her on the stage nt
from 50 cents to 10 a head as your
hood is worth the money and you can
pay the price
She always had a voice she thought
it was a good soprano that reached
high C When she went to Paris to
make a real Ktudy of singing largely
because some women of the cabinet
didnt think Secretary Wilsons un
married daughter could bo hostess at
his homethe famous Madame Mar
ches said shed bo lucky If she could
prove B flat Madame Marchosl IB
86 years old which Is as good as
being horn In Missouri But when
Miss Wilson showed her that high C
she refused to tate her voice lost fee
and begged her to become a pupil
But the American girl tried out all
the studios and finally settled on Jeau
do Reszkes And there she found
that her volco reached not merely
high C but soared upward to F which
Is the famous high note of Telraz
zlnlShe
She came back home last year and
snug at the White House In Wash
ington and In some few other cities
where her conspicuously fine opera
olce claimed recognition from tho
critics She had shown voice qual
ity culture and as mitch tempera
ment as any grand opera score can
call for
But the way was to show too the
temperament of a lyric Boadlcea if
ever that energetic heroine of oM
world politics should be drafted Into
opera This fall when the cam
paign began to wax warm she volun I
teered according to reports from Den
Moines to help her father on the
stump by singing to the audience aft
er he had made his campaign speech
cS Uoardlcea herself might have pre
ferred to lead her Republican hosts
around to Democratic headquarters
and wreck them with an ax but you
cant do that nowadays on the grand
opera basis anywhere but on the
stage In real life the Democrats are
understood to be very peculiar and
fussy about such enterprises
But there was no need from the
artistic standpoint for the melodious
Iowa girl to show temperament on the
slump She had meanwhile acquired
a mission militant enough to startle
all Americans and to earn encomiums
from hundreds of phvelcJnno She had
been lecturing on the shortcomings
of the American voice with Its nasal
twang and wisely separated audi
ences havo applauded her offortH to
make them change It while doctors
orywhoro have written to her cheer
ing on the good work In the Interest
of tho physical health of the nation
She may go back to Paris and make
her debut in grand opera there for
Do Rcazko Is eager to havo the credit
of finch a marvelous voice enhanced
bj emotional qualities which fit her
for tho moat thrilling roles
They say Secretary Wllaon famous
the country over as Its kindly Uncle
Jimmy po far as agriculture goes is
all cautions parent when It comes to
the ambitions of bis only daughter
and that ho lent overanxious to see
her class herself definitely wtlh the
profession of the stogb But Bomp
how American daughters usually
manage to have their own way and
when you find so much temperament I
bent on appearing where Itwl1l do
tho most good why what can a poor
nareut doNes York World

WHITES NARROW ESCAPE
I Edward Douglass White is the new
chief justice of the United States
supreme court and the story I am to
tell In this connection while not one
of tho Fifty Famous Ifs of History
ought to possess interest for my set
The facts as I relate them are In all
probability not known to another per
son In Now York though some of
my old New Orleans friends will re
call them with glee
My friend Harry M Williams dame
pretty close to being elected United
Stales senator from Louisiana and
theother candidates In the race were
Edward Douglass White Don Car
frey and Newton C Blanchard
This Is tho way It happened The
Louisiana legislature was In sjxsion
In July of 1802 Murphy Foster
the present United States senator
was thon governor and a bitter fight
was being made on the Louisiana
state lottery and Samuel D McBn
cry Harry Williams was covering
tho legislature for the New Orleans
Now Delta a newspaper that passed
put of existence many years ago In
the course of his labors Williams had
written an extended marriage notice
about a legislator named Boggs It
was Boggs fourth marriage and Wil
liams had handled It in a way that
pleased tho victim
The day came when complimentary
votes were being cast for favorite
sons who wanted to go to the aenato
and had no show of winning
Roll call started Bogga I name was
reached
Hero Is where r can do the right
thing Boggs reasoned and he shout
ed
I vote for Harry M Williams
In addition he got busy with his
followlnembers and buttonholed them
right and left
Vote for Williams be pleaded
rushing In every corner of the assem
bly room And nearly everybody did
The roll clerk had reached the let
ter R or maybe It was S rlimi tho
leaders were thrown Into n panic
Good Lord they said Here they
ap electing a senator that We never
dreamed of
So they rushed to everybody whoso
names began with R S T U V W
and so forth and spiked Williams
chances He missed bolng elected by
