into au apartment of fine wire netting
by means of a scented bait which .[it", is
said the flea cannot resist. There Is no
egress except in another apartment, and
this is repeated until, from wandering
out of one department into another the
flea's mind becomes affected and he dies

Kansas man could have thought of that."
THAT COUNCIL. MEETING.
While the proceedings of the City Coun?
cil last Tuesday night were not charac?
terized by any great amount of work,they
were nevertheless of au exceedingly lively
and Interesting nature, and for a time it
seemed that there was about to be "a hot
time In Old Town" that night. As to the
charge of incompotency, which was
brought against Mr. B?chner, it is sim?
Mr. Buckner.like the rest of humanity,
may have his faults, but his enemies as
well as his friends must admit that iu
point of business ability he will compare
most favorably with Mr. Terry or any
other member of the City Council.
The presentation and placing on calen?
dar ot an ordinance doing away with
nicKel in-the-slot machines and all other
gambling devices, was action well taken,
and, as the measure is as good as passed,
was highly creditable ts the judgment
and justice of the city fathers.
On the whole while Council might have
done more it might also have done less,
and, as all is well that ends well, it is
hoped tho little episode that threatened
for a time to mar the harmony of tho
proceedings will rather tend iu future to
make the*members of that body more
considerate of each others' feelings in the
excitement of debate.
THE 3AN JOKE SCALE.
The people of Salem and Roanoke coun?
ty generally are seriously disturbed at
the appearance iu the orchards and gar?
dens thero of the Sau Jose, or pernic?
ious scale, and on Friday a mass meeetlng
was held at the courthouse to take steps
to prevent, if possible, further spread of
the[pest. Prof.WUliam B. Alwood, of the
Virginia Experimental station at Blacks
burg, was present at the meeting aud
gave a history of the scale and the best
means of destroying it He had beeu in
the community several ?h?ys inspecting
the trees and exhibited infected spec?
imens of fruit, twigs and branches gath?
ered in the course of his observations.
After the subject had beeu discussed a
committee was appointed to confer with
the board of supervisors aud town coun?
cil of Salem with a view to inducing them
to employ an inspector for the town and
county. As Salem and its environs for
several miles around are thoruoghly In?
fested by the pests it is more than proba?
ble that the fruit trees of this city and
vicinity are similarly affected, and it
would be well for all interested 'u the
subject to look into the matter at once.
The history of the insect seems to
show that it first made its appearance
iu the Kan Jose Valley, CaL, iu 1873.
having been brought there from Austra?
lia, and after extending its ravages all
along the Pacific coast, gradually worked
Its way eastward Virginia has the un?
fortunate notoriety of being the linit
State along the Atlantic seaboard in
which the pests appeared, it having been
discovered in Washington ou some pears
brought there from Chnrlottesville. As
tho Infection was at first thought to be
local, vigorous efforts were made by the
entmological div ision of the Uuited States
department of agriculture,in conjuuetion
with the Virginia State Board of Agri?
culture, cc stamp out the pests by fumi?
gating with hydrocyanic acid gas; but
the scale had spread to outlying
plants, aud from lack of proper oversight
the pest continued to spread until an
indefinite area became infected. It is be?
lieved the scale was brought to this sec?
tion by fruit trees brcught from New
Jersey; but, however that may be, it is
very important that tho necessary steos
be taken to prevent the further ravages
of tho insect, and the sooner this is dono
the better it wil' be for the fruit pros?
pects of this locality.
MAKING BAD WORSE.
Our esteemed contemporary. The Rich
Oiond Times, while entirely agreeing
with Congressman Jones' primary plan
for the selection of the United States Sen?
ators, attempts to apologize for the
course of Senator Daniel in opposing it
before tho Roanoke cenvention on the
plea that the Lame Lion of Virginia, with
his characteristic gallantry and chivalry,
was standing by his friend, Senator Mar?
In urging this plea,however, the Times
admits that "nobody who knows Senator
Daniel expects from him the clear '?ea
souing of*jtho impassive statesman."
This is exactly what the criticisers of
the Senator's course claim. They assert
that in opposing the senatorial primary
plan'Senator Daniel failed to measure up
to the requirements of the situation and
proved himself deficient in that foresight
and saimcity which is always a charac?
teristic of a true statesman.
So far as his own personal ambitions
wore concerned no ono would have
blamed Senator Daniel [if he had sacri?
ficed them ou the altar of friendship; but

Atlanta Journal: It was reserved for
William McKinley to be the first Presi?

a pilgrimage to the tomb of .lohn Brown.
What a spectacle was then presented!
We see the man who was elected Presi?

memory of one who liefied the laws of

When John Brown wns hanged he was
canonized a- a sainr. and martyr by those
abolitionists who hid denounced the con?

with hell and a cofenant with the devil.
It was natural that t>u<*h men should

After committing a series of black
crimes in Kansas sufficient to have sent

A more desperate villlan never threat?
ened the peace of a community or made
his end more properly on the gibbet. In
his mad fanaticism he scrupled at noth?
ing. The torch, the shot gun and the
knife were bis chosen weapons, and he
instigated others to use them. lie hated
law and preached iusnrrectlou, arson and
murder. Ho met the fate he richly de?
served, and In his execution the law tri?
umphed; over ono of Its most'dangerous
enemies. Such was the man to whose
grave President McKinley made a visit.
The President has often uttered high
sounding eulogies of the sanctity of the
law, and has emphasized the necessity
of its strict observance. What n com?
mentary upon these professions did he
make as he stood with uncovered head
over the ashes of one of the most desper?

known in this country!
