Herman Gottlieb of the Smithsonian
.institution. District of Columbia, ar
, rived in southern California recently,
bound on a peculiar mission, lie has
permission from the government to do
extensive experimenting in the forest
reserve section and on other public
lands with trees which are strangers
to the United States. His is an im
portant mission, expected to result in
the Introduction of valuable forest
The experimenter from the Smithso
' nian institution has traveled all over
the world during the last few years
and has visited and studied the forests
of nearly all the tropical countries.
llerr Gottlieb, when seen at the An
gelus the other evening, says the Los
Angeles Times, was- busily discussing
the problems of natural history with
local enthusiasts, but stopied readily
enough to explain. Said he: "The
breadfruit tree I think that was what
first attracted my attention to the trop
ical forests of the world and their
wonderful possibilities. I thought that
if a poor, barbarous nation could live
and get clothes and food and some
times wonderful tools and weapons out
of the dank depths of these jungle for
ests what might not the civilized man
"Pon't think that I anticipated bring
ing home a breadfruit tree to America
and setting it up to drive the bakers
out of business. Oh.no! I believe that
breadfruit, like the green persimmon,
is an acquired taste, and I never in
tend to extend my experiments in that
direction. There are other things be
sides breadfruit there, however, things
that one doesn't eat or drink, but
which I believe would have great value
in our industries.
4,For instance, I believe that there
are species of the rubber tree which
could be made to thrive in a mild cli
mate. -&nd rubber as cultivated in the
hot climates Is getting to be a pretty
scarce and serious proposition for the
commercial nations. If there is no way
discovered to conserve and increase the
rubber supply they will have to -smear
our overshoes with varnish in a few
"Then there are several species of
the fibrous palm, which I have investi
gated, and these I think could be made
to work themselves advantageously
into the textile industry. For instance,
there is a species I call 'cotton waste'
because its real name is too difficult
to pronounce which would work a
man-el in the rope making business.
Its fiber is almost exactly like that of
hemp, except that it is considerably
finer and much stronger for its size,
and it sheds Itself exactly as a mass of
cotton waste will constantly drop its
rrotruding strands. The production of
this vegetable wonder is enormous,
and as it grows like a mass of rushes
in a creek it is of no expense after it
once gets a start. The natives of south
ern Asia, the place of its nativity, use
it in making all their ropes, some of
which, as large around as a man's fin
ger, will almost hold an elephant. It
could be woven in the same manner as
hemp, and, unlike hemp, it requires no
rotting or special chemical treatment
to fit it for use.
"In the' production of rare and valu
able woods the United States ought to
excel. Many of the tropical species can
never be successfully grown here, and,
again, I believe that many others can.
For instance, there is an Ivory wood
growing on the Abyssinian mountains
which ought to sell easily for $2 a foot
in the lumber market. Its texture is
the rich, creamy color of old ivory, it
polishes to perfection, contains a won
derful grain, lasts forever and is al
most as hard as the South American
' "This species only grows in Abys
sinia, but the climate is temperate,
and the conditions of air and soil, so
far as I have been able to estimate,
are exactly those which prevail in the
southern Atlantic states of this repub
lic. "I hope I am not classable with the
freaks and cranks for my hopes and
plans, and, please, don't say that I
have yet discovered anything. I am
only experimenting with a view to
finding something that may possibly
be done. I have found in California
the ideal semitropic where I hope that
many of these valuable specimens of
vegetation may be successfully trans
planted and grown on land now of
little use to any one. If this can be
done it will not interfere with any of
the present industries, yet will be a
wonderful help to commerce. Into
these experiments, which I will con
duct this year through southern Cali
fornia and the entire west, I shall put
the experience of a lifetime and the
ardent hope of many years."
With him 1 1 err Gottlieb has numer
ous trunks full of seeds and cuttings
he has taken and which he will plant
and leave to the tender care of Uncle
Sam's hired men. He expects to finish
the work on his present trip about the
1st of. August Next- year ox; tfce. year

A POETICAL ANATHEMA.
Rev. Dr. Illllla Describes Advnntarei

"To Hades on a Brooklyn car" is the
title of the latest poetical effusion of
the Rev. Dr. Newell Dwight Hillis,
pastor of riymouth church, Brooklyn,
says the New York Herald.
Dr. Hillis'when seen at his residence
the other day said that he had written
a poem on a recent Sunday while filled
with "righteous indignation" over hav

trying to catch a train at the Grand
Central station. He had an engagement
to deliver an address in Connecticut in
the evening. He took a trolley car to
cross the bridge, and when about half
way over there was a block.
Dr. Hillis left the car and walked to
the New York side, where he caught a
train to Forty-second street, arriving at
the Grand Central station to find that
he was Just one minute behind the
train. The doctor's blood was up. Sit
ting down in the station, he composed
the following anathema:

M. Jules Huret, a Faris journalist,
who has been in nearly all parts of the
United States making observations -for
his paper, the Figaro, thus summed tp
his conclusions recently when seen soon
after bis arrival in Chicago, says the

American chorus girl when she exe

the cancan and cake walk.
"You have wonderful material prog

A BLOW AT SHAKESPEARE.
Cbteaajro Teacber Calla Rim a "Cheap
Punster," Unfit For Children.
"Shakespeare should not be used in
the grammar schools nor even in high
schools where there are many pupils
of foreign birth. Shakespeare was a
cheap punster, and his wit was of a
slim order. His jokes are often of a
shady character. Ills language Is be
hind the times. The bad grammar,
bad spelling and bad morals which ap
pear in his writings should not be set
tip as a standard for our young stu
dents to follow."
These were among the observations
made before the Chicago Principals'
association the other day by Principal
William E. Watt of the Graham school
In Chicago, says the New York World.
The views were expressed in the
course of a discussion following the
presentation of a committee report on

New York Herald. After an examina

For years this house has been known
as "Russell Sage's whim."
Liberal offers have been made for
the purchase of the property, but he
has refused them all. He set a price
which real estate dealers will not meet,
and rather than "back down" Mr. Sage
permits the house to be dismantled by
thieves. There Is a great lock and
chain on the basement door, and the
front door is locked and barred. Ad
joining the house is a one story exten
sion, over which an agile person could
climb and gain access to the house.
Mr. Sage bought the property In 1S98
under a foreclosure sale from a Dr.
Hayward, who occupied it. It waa
used for a short time as a residence
and again as a kindergarten school.
For months it has been untenanted.
The Sage house was built ten years
ago and was litied with all the' Im
provements of that time and was kept
up to date la improvements. Now it is
a wreck. The nickel plumbing has been
removed, the marble mantels taken
away and even a valuable parquet
floor was carried off In sections. The
silver plated faucets and water piping
has been removed and sold as junk. A
grand chandelier in the parlor, from
which hung hundreds of prisms, is
gone. Nothing is left but the walls and
There never has been a caretaker in
the house since it was abandoned. Mr.

house in good condition. It would have
cost $1,CKX) to do it, and Mr. Sage re
fused. Not content with removing stuff of
value, the vandals destroyed the fine
satin faced wall paper and knocked the
plaster full of holes. The boys of the
neighborhood have made the windows
targets for stone throwing. At times
personal remarks about Mr. Sage are
chalked on the walls.
