ARBOR DAT This is the day that has been set apart by proclamation of Governor Lake f'r Arbor and Bird day. It Is a day in which he asks the citizens of Connecti cut and especially the teachers and pu nils in the public schools, to give care ful attention and thought to the value and preservation of our forests as well as the value and protection of the ln- seotivorcpts and song birds. Have you arranged to do your bit in the nromotine of the interest in these things? Are you going to lend your in fluence and example for the develop ment of greater enthusiasm in this di rection? Are you going to encourage what is so necessary and what is wor thy of your cooperation? It is because such duties as Arbof day is designed to emphasize have ibeen too sadlv necrlected that the -wisdom of directing greater attention to the nee has been recognized and the Arbor day plan agreed upon. It is solely for the purpose of arousing greater interest such a desirable effort since when there is concerted action better results are obtained. It is a half century since the Artor day idea was launched. During that time it has gained recognition throughout the nation as a movement which serves to direct attention to conditions which can not be wisely overlooked. Through the schools there is an important education at step taken in training the mind of the children concerning the importance of trees and birds and the need of giv ing encouragement to both. AVitltin a few years greater attention has ben directed to the demand for the replacing of our forests which have been depleted in one way and another, while -Trlil itioual interest in tree planting has bfon aroused since the war by the man ner in which they have been used for memorials and remembrance .highways. There is tin danger, however, that the purpose of Arbor and .Bird day will be overdone by a general participation.

Lack of rain aad the winds have left a covering ef dry material throughout fields and fTrests which furnish just the kind of ful needed to permit disastrous fires.

BKVEMDGE'S VICTORY The ontcome of the contest be tween Senator New and former Sen ator Beveridge In the Indiana' pri maries indicates clearly the confi dence that Is being placed In the candidate of the republican party In the November election. Both desired the nomination. But onecould get It and it has lein shown that the man who has long ben before the people of that state and who occupies a place among nation al figures 4s desired by them as their representative in the upper house of con gress for the next term. Both are of course reubltcans and while there are those v.-ho will look at the situation from all angles in order to consider the po litical bearing in this or that direction it simmers down to the fatct that between these two men it has been declared by the republicans that they prefer Bever idi;e. It was a personal victory for the former senator. Each one made a thorough campaign of the state. It was a contest in which the administration had maintained the policy of "hands off . ucvenugo ,aa not made his campaign against administra tive policies. He has Indicated his In dependence by his declarations against the group idea In congress and against the agricultural grotrp in spite of the fact that his state is much given to agriculture. But on that he has been no more outspoken than he has on other matters of state and national Interest and hid attitude must be regarded as having appealed to the people. He has not stood other than as a republican and the fact that he has won does not in any way indicate a party break If the attitude of Senator New who upon acknowledging defeat represents that of his supporters in that commonwealth, ritOSECCTINQ WAR FRAUDS Almost since the time when the ar ev"tce was signed and the work of K-ttling bp the government contracts in inflection with the war there has been mirh heard in regard to the alleged frauds that existed In connection with lli production of war materials In this toiuitry.

THOMAS MOORE. Thomas Moore, the popular Irish poet, was close to SO years of age when he started on the most interesting work of hts long career, the writing of a history of his country. He was asked to under take this work by the Longmans, who projected a group of histories of the British Isles, Sir James Mackintosh to write on England. Sir Walter Scott on Scotland and Moore on Ireland. Moore was supposed to combine hie en tire story in one volume, but patriotism prompted him to leave no part o his country's story untouched, and instead of one volume he dragged out the history to four, of which the last appeared in 1846, when he was 67 years of age. Of this work, Sir John Russell says. "Moore's time was absorbed by it. his health worn, and his faculties dragged down to a wearisome and uncongenial task, at least so far as the publio can juaee Dy 1he result as ta the latter." Nevertheless, it was an honorable end to his long literary career. The easy singer of light loves closed his ceaseless activities with a iong period of drudgery, spent, says Lord Russell, "in the critical examination of obscure authorities upon an obscure subject." But the "obscure subject" was the history of the singer's own country, and Moore was at least well justified in holding that urgent need ex isted for spreading among the English, and still more among the Irish, a know ledge of the history of Ireland. i or the writing of this history Moore was paid the sum of BOO pounds a vol ume. Nor was all' his time soent on the writing of his history, for he devoted much of it to the collection of all his Irish melodies, to be incorporated in one publication. It was a long labor, but the! edition was finally completed in 181. j Moore might have accomplished other great things before his death, because his ! mind was as alert and as productive In! nis bos as it was at any time during his career. But fate held a "hard blow in store for him in his old age being com pelled to survive the death of alt live of his children, and when the last one, who was his namesake, died In Africa, he noted in his diary: "The last of my five children now are gone, and I am left desolate and atone. Not a single relative have I now left in the world" This was practically the end of Moore's career. A severe Illness followed the an nouncement of the death of his last child, and when he recovered, says Lord John Russell, "he was a different man. And with his memory, his wit had gone aleo." The Memoirs which ha. himneif a ,t lover and reader of such literature, had scrupulously kept for a petted of nearly 0 years, were always designed to be a posmumous resource for hi, heirs, and ne naa connded them by a will made many years earlier to the case of his friend, Lord Russell.

D. King Fuad succeeds Cleopatra. "When Great Britain abandoned Its protectorate over Egypt, and the Sul tan of the Nile country changed his title to king, he became the first king Of Egypt since the Ptolemaio regime," says a bulletin issued from the Wash ington, D. C, headquarters of the Na tional Geographic Society. "The old Egypt of millenniums ago is in many ways more familiar to the world at large than the Egypt of to day," continues the bulletin. "Pictures of its great pyramids and sphinxes, its columned temples and rock-hewn tombs fill histories and encyclopedias; and inevitably the reader's attention ifi centered, not on the problems of today, but rather on the evidences of a dead civilization. "But aside from the fact that" mum my hunting was for many years one Of the leading private industries f the country; and that now convicts. instead of building roads, excavate tombs and temples for the govern ment, the old monuments are mere ly a background for a life hard enough to center local thoughts mostly on daily bread-winning. "Superficially Egypt seems a large country, xne eye sees Its color spread over a considerable part of the north eastern quarter of the map of Africa, and statistics credit it with an area or more than 350,00? square miles. But the real Egypt the habitable part is like a cord with a frayed end; the narrow valley and flaring delta of the Kile. Except a few scattered oases, most of the rest of the nomi nal Egypt is parched desert Band, gravel and rocky hills. Of its more than a third of a million square miles ef territory, about 12,000 are estimat ed to be capable o cultivation, and a considerable part of this has not yet been actually tilled. In comparing the - Egypt of today with that of the dawn of history one is divided between worAit at th marked changes on the surface and the lack of changes in some funda mentals. The Egyptian of today does not speak his old tongue, but instead. Arabic; his old gods are forgotten, and he has with the exception of a small minority adopted the religion of Mohammed. But in spite of nu merous invasions, the blood ot the great majority of the population lias been altered hardly at all. Practical ly the fellaheen, or ineiaants, might have stepped from the ancient carv ings: ..they are but a fresh eezi.ra.tinn of the men who dragged the great blocks of stone into place to build the artificial mountains of the Phar ohs, or who dropped seeds into the mud of the receding Nile thousands of years ago, even as tbey are drop ped today. ''Erypt's resources are almost whol ly agricultural, and in the agricultu ral scehetne the millions of fellaheen are the ultimate units. They work long hours scratching the soil with crude implements, or tediously rais ing water in skin buckets attached to pivoted poles that the thin stream may save their plants from parching. Taxes are heavy, and It Is the lowly fellaheen who keep the treasury sup- piled. Living conditions are very poor mud huts house most of Egypt's thir teen millions. In the fields they wear Uttle more than a loin cloth, and the younger children of the villages go naked. When the fellah is 'dressed up' he wears a rough shirt and loose trou sers. "There is little cause to marvel at Egypt's Checkered history. A simple reason is that she began early.

To Drotect European bond-hold era France and Great Britain made a Joint intervention in 187S and for a while controlled finances.

The government was in ei feet Egyptian with British assistance and with the nominal suzerainty of Turkey acknowledged. "When the World War began Great Britain established a protectorate, abolished Turkey's suzerainty, deposed the Germanophile Khedive, and ap pointed another prince of the family to be Sultan.
