School Children and

The youngsters of Washington are
now holding such an election. Out of
18.000 votes so far cast, more than
7,000 are for the oak. But the friends
of other American trees have not given
up and are still campaigning actively
for their particular choices.
We suggest that the school children
of our own perish hold a formal "Na
tional Tree" election in the various
schools. The plan as suggested is
that the children of each school-or
perhaps each class-constitute them
selves an independent voting com
munity or precinct. First, the school
or class should elect their election
board, two judges and two clerks.
Then provide a box for the ballots. A
fixed time for voting should be named
in advance, nobody being allowed to
vote before or after the hours fixed.
When the polls are closed, the judges
and clerks should count the votes.
When this is done, a summary should
be prepared containing the total vote
sad the vote of each tree. The judges
and clerks should sign the summary
in their official capacity and it should
be attested by the teacher.
The summary should then be mailed
to the American Forestry Association,
National Tree Voting Department,
1214 Sixteenth Street, N. W., Wash

tion and a copy of the summary should
be sent to this newspaper for publica

short, middle aged, with mustache,
wearing a blue shirt and round felt
hat, without any crease in it. has
attacked several ladies on the streets
at night, accosting them in a wayl
that should give alarm to women
and children at night until he is
caught. On last Wednesday night,
about 10 p. m., when Mrs. August
Schabel and Mrs. Hy. Donnenfelser
were on their way home, they were
accosted by this man, who tried to

NEW POUND KEEPER
RICES GETS CATTLE
Algiers has a new pound keeper,
and we must say that he is the best
we have had in many years. Mr.
Geo. L. Ricks, the large property
owner in the upper end of Algiers
received his appointment a few days
ago, and at once entered upon the
disoharge of his duties. Mr. Ricks
owns the Ricks' Farm and also has
made quite a reputation during the
past years in taldlng Chrysanthemums
and dahlias. It has been his cus
tom each year to donate large num
bers of dahlias for some charitable
institqtion. Mr. Ricks sees the
necessity of keeping the cattle from
the streets and in the week since he
has been appointed he has made
things hum. The people are begin
ning to understand that Mr. Ricks
is not playing like some of the other
pound keepers but is making each
individual come across and pay his
pound fees which is $210. The
Israld congratulates Mr. Ricks on
Sthe streauous efort he is making to
protect the property of our citisens
who are trying to help beautify and
embellish our streets and neutral
grounds wfth trees and shrubbery,
Which heretofore have been destroyed
by horses, goats and cattle.

PROTECTING THE bl
It is with a certain amount of w

not interfere with the duties of our
new pound keeper, Geo. L. Ricks.
who is making a raid on cattle that
have heretofore been destroying ti
public property. It had been the
custom for the past eight or ten
years that when animals were put ,
in the pound, the owner would go e
to one of the politicians and have C
the animal released without pays
Under this old system the person }
whose property had been destroyed
was compelled to suffer the conse
quences. Sergeant James Cripps
with Patrolman Michael Huff on Sat
urday last arrested Sam Calderone r
and August Calderone for interfering t
with the pound keeper's duties. Sam
Calderone was charged in our local
court with' allowing cattle to roam
at large and with disturbing the
peace, while August Calderone was
bound for the Juvenile Court. The
Herald takes this occasion to com
mend our local police in their suc-t
cessful efforts to get rid of a nui- F
sance that has existed for many
Mr. Louis Munsterman, chief g
clerk to Mayor McShane, stated that ,
he was in sympathy with this move
ment, and that he would do every
thing he could to help the officers to
bring to justice the people who con- a
tinually violate the stock ordinance. s
Judge Duffy also stated that he wound I
not tolerate these violations and that F
he would also work in conjunction t
with the police to clean up Algiers f
