For the first time In tho history of

will form a large section of tho inau
gural parade next March. Woodrow

the Inaugural committee to give them
a place In tho parade, and the women
have received privato assurances that
their request will bo granted. Ten
thousand women, they estimate, will

"We anticipate that our section of
the parade will arouse more interest
than any other," said Miss Emma Gil
lette, tho recording secretary, "for It
will have the advantage of complete
novelty as an Inaugural feature. We
will not march as Democrats, but aB
women voters and women who desire
to become voters. Pennsylvania is ex

you may depend upon It that tho suf
frage section will bo a credltablo part

themselves upon the altar of patriot
ism, even If they are compelled to ac
cept jobs nt salaries ranging from $700
to $10,000, in order to help him out of
the tight hole he Is In.
The result Is that some of the leaders
of congress are bordering on prostra
tion. W. H. Smith, representative from
El Paso and other towns embraced In
tho western part of Texas, received a
burning letter from one of his constitu
Dear Representative I think that It Is

Texas was one of tho original and

while the salary of an ambassador
was very good, tho Incumbent usually
found It necessary to contribute from
his own pocket nn amount equal to tho

Senator Pomerono of Ohio received
a letter from n Missouri Democrat,
briskly requesting a list of all tho
places that would be at tho disposal of

NEW WIRELESS LAW.
Duplicate Plant on Big Ships Will
Doubly Safeguard Them.
Every captain of any vessel carry
ing fifty or more nbonrd, passengers or
crew, going to sea without wireless
equipment Is liable to a fine of $.5,000.
This Is the main provision of tho
new law passed in July following tho
foundering of tho Titanic. It applies
to American shipmasters and masters
of foreign vessels leaving American
ports nnd navigating tho great lakes.
Although a similar law has been In
effect since July, 1910, tho present
statute is much stronger than tho old
ono. According to tho now law, an
auxiliary power plant, Independent of
tho vessel's main electric power plaut,
must lie nrovlded.

And oven our doubt not free?
Parliaments built of paper.

A hush around hunger slaying,
A city of serfs unfed.

That broke Its forest chains,
And men shall remember tho mountain
When It marches ngalnst tho plains
And christen their children from it
And reason and ship and street.
When tho mountain camo to Mnhomot
And looked small beforo his feet
Ills head was high ns tho crescent
Of tho moon that seemed his crown,
And on glory of past and present
Tho light of his eyes looked down.

Though it fall down llko a tree.
They shall ice tho sign of tho mountain,

Though the crooked swords overcome It
And tho ciooked moon ride free.

Uncle Sam Sends Agricultural
Explorer on OJd Trip,
WEIGHS AT LEAST A POUND,
Frank N. Meyer on Hia Way to Shan
tung to Obtain the Juicy Chincso
Wonder, Which Is to Be Added to the
Product of These United States To
Spend Three Years In the Wilds.
Twenty-five thousand miles looking
for a peach that is the stupendous
Journey which has been undertaken by
Frank N". Meyer, explorer nnd expert
for the Fnited States department of
agriculture. The pencil Is worthy of
the effort, according to stories that
have crept into coast areas of Man
churla nnd eastern China.
The peach Is described by travelers
who have seen and tasted It ns the big
gest and most marvelous combination
of external beauty nnd Internal his
ciousiiesH. Three pounds is the apocry
phal limit ascribed to the fruit by lr
responsible natives of the wilds oi
Mr. Meyer In a report to the depart
ment promises a pencil that will weigh
at least a pound and Is as as largo as
a muskmclou. This wonderful peach
grows In the province of Shantung. It
Is known to the Chinese ns the Telt
Ching or Felt Tau.
To Bring Out First Specimens.
No specimens have ever been brought
to tho coast of China. Mr. Meyer did
bring back with him from n previous
Journey several scions of the Kelt
Ching peach and n number of seeds.
The scions failed to produce when
grafted upon American grown seedling
stocks. They hnd failed to withstand
Tho department experimenters took
n chance with the seeds nnd have
grown several trees at the experimen
tal station at Fayettovllle, N. C. None
of them hns yet fruited, nnd it Is tho
belief of the experts that nothing ex
traordinary will bo developed from the
Like other fruits, tho seeding peach
develops desirable frultlngs only In
rare Instances. According to Luther
Ilurbank, hardly more than one desira
ble seeding out of n plnntlng of 100,000
seeds Is to be expected.
The 25,000 mile Journey of Mr. Meyer
began when he went to London for n
conference with notnble European ag
riculturists beforo taking the final dive
into the orient It is not only the Felt
Ching peach which Is sounding the call
of the east for tho American explorer.
Under the direction of the bureau of
plant Industry Mr. Meyer la Innugurat
Ing n threo years' sojourn In tho wilds
of southeastern Itussla and western
Chlnn for the purpose of studying suit
able crops of all sorts for growth nnd
development In those sections of the
United States where tho limit of frost
less days is not more than elghty-flve
or ninety per annum.
Trees For Windbreaks.
Not ono branch of tho activities of
the deportment of agriculture, but all
branches of Its work, will bo observed
by Mr. Meyer. Fruits, vegetnbles, ce
reals and also trees especially suited
for the development of windbreaks In
tho wind swept areas of the great
plains regions will be observed by him.
At tho last session of congress an ap
propriation of $00,000 was made for
tho establishment at Mandan, N. D., of
u governmental experiment station for
Just this particular class of vegetation.
Quick growing crops of nil sorts will
be observed, and shade trees nnd orna
mental plants which can be transport
ed nnd transplanted to the United
States will be examined.
Mr. Meyer Is accompanied by no
American assistant lie will upon his
rrlval in southeastern Itussla organ
ize his own caravan. He carries with
him materials for the packing 'and pres
ervation of the scions of trees and for
tho carrying homo of roots and seeds
of the plant organisms.
FOREIGN TRADE SOARS.
Four Billion Mark Near For United
States Imports and Exports.
Attainment of a $-1 ,000,000,000 for
eign trade by the United States In 1012
will be one of the most noteworthy
facts for historians to record of tho
American nation nt the beginning of
the now year. In announcing the totals
of tho export nnd Import trade of tho
country for ten mouths ended with Oc
tober tho buroau of domestic and for
eign commerce Btated that tho foreign
commerco would reach this enormous
total by tho end of December, its
highest former record wns $3,020,000,
000, in 1011. It crossed tho $3,000,000,.
000 lino for tho tlrst time in 1000 nnd
passod $2,000,000,000 in 1890.
Imports In tho ten months amounted
to $1,011,000,000 nnd exports to $1,S71,
000,000, mulcing It npparent that the
Imports of tho full year will approxi
mate $1,800,000,000 and tho exports
$2,300,000,000, totaling $1,100,000,000.
Import have practically doubled In
vnluo since 1001, and exports havo
practically doubled since 1004. The ex
ports of domestic products, which had
never touched tho $2,000,000,000 murk
until 1011, will In 1012 npproximato
$2,250,000,000, wbllo tho exports of for
eign merchandise during tho year will
probably fall slightly below the high
record of $37,250,000,000 In 1010.
