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.

BKVEMDGE'S VICTORY
The ontcome of the contest be

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

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

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

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. The Memoirs could
not better have answered each a nnmn

King Fuad succeeds Cleopatra.
"When Great Britain abandoned Its

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

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

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-

mud huts house most of Egypt's thir

public meeting in London, eager to
judge England's first woman M. P.

than ladles tn exquisite satin.
Her platform manner Is one of nt
spoken friendliness. I watched the oth

decided that this friendliness is Lady
Astor's "Mad In America" guarantee

to bo both her big gift to E-gland
