ERA Of GOOD FEELING
Promotion of Harmony Among West Virginia Republicans. SOME LATE APPOINTMENTS Governor Ignores Factional Lines in Making Selections. BAETON, LABOB COMMISSIONEB His Fourth Term in the Office?Gos sip Regarding Political Con ditions in the State. 6pe<*ial Correspondence of TV* Star. WHEELING, W. Va.. May 22. 1900. An era of good feellns in the republican Tarty in West Virginia is foreshadowed by the appointments Gov. Glasscock con tinues to hand out. He is keeping to a pledge he made preceding the election that he would not recognize factional differences, and he seems to be bent on reuniting the party in one grand har monious whole. . . The new governor had a delicate task in selecting the two majority members of the state board of control, and he chose two representative West Virginians James F. Lakin and John A. Sheppard who were Identified with the rival Swish er and Scherr clans, and he followed these up this week by the reappointment of Isaac V. Barton as stato labor com missioner. This makes Barton's fourth ment. he having previously nun1?g Govs. Atkinson, "W hite and DawJon. He was appointed first when a resident of Marshall county, but soon after grossed the line to Ohio county, where he ras since resided. Barton's was strenuously opposed b> pha?% '? Swisher, likewise State Chairman Sam V. Mathews and others of the inn?*" clrcl of the old Swisher organization, but t?ov. Glasscock Ignored political and political feeling and selec*eda,f,,arJhe on the strength of his recordandthe character of the favorable petitions fw>m labor organizations, manufacturers and employers of labor generally. Swisher Montgomery's Friend. Samuel B. Montgomery, formerly a state senator, of Preston county and for some months back holding a position with the Department of Commerce an Labor at Washington, was the candidate for the place backed by the Swisher bri gade. Montgomery was also supported bv the miners. He started life as a coal digger at Tunnelton. His support, ever was not active as compared with that of the railroaders and-other classes of labor men lined up behind Barton. Barton supported Arnold governor last summer and went to rather extreme lengths in assailing Swisher labor record in the legislature-* matter that Swisher did not care to forget. Gov. Glasscock was a Swisher supporter while the latter was a candidate, but he did rot allow his leanings to be Influenced by the Swisher antagonism to Barton. This incident is the most prominent to date of the governor's policy in aPP?"^I ments. He seems set onmaknga *ood record for himself and for his adminis tration at large. He Intends also to in troduce the shears so as to limit un necessary state expenditures, and the btate board of control is to follow his de sires by exacting from the ^heads orall state Institutions the mp?t rigid economy in management. The governor also in tends to cut down the number of attaches at the legislative sessions and he will be gin his real work In that-llna at the first session to be held under his adwrtnistra tion, which will likely be a special session next winter. Eyes Cast Forward. Meredith Simms, one of the bosse* of the republican organisation in Fayette county, is out with a boom for Charles W. Dillon of the same county for govern or in 1912. Simms was one of Swisher's star supporters and he won a hard and bitter fight for the county delegation. It may be significant that he Intends to support Dillon when Swisher has already proclaimed himself a candidate again. And it is also of some interest that L>H Ion Is booming ex-Gov. Dawson to suc ceed Senator Scott. But the nature of politics played in Fayette and thei sec tion in and about Charleston has alwa>s been puzzling to the denizens of other *tai2?tt? ot Judge M. H. Willi. My h. will not be a candidate for Congress against Representative W P Hubbard. Certain newspaper changes in the district and the judge's removal to "Wetzel county furnished ground for gossip, and while he is personally silent the leaders of the anti-Hubbard movement last year, who *ere supposed to be casting about for a new victim and who were rumored to have Willis in mind, deny the soft im peachment. They are doing noting in that line at present and may forego the ar.xiety of another struggle unless there are unforeseen developments. THE CHILDREN'S THEATER. Rip Van Winkle?Bip Sleeping. Scene 5?Instructions for the Cut-Out in the Comic Section. Betty and Jack turned to the color sec tion eagerly, and Betty urged Jack to go on with the story of the play. "The thunder rolled and crashed." he began, "and the rain came down in tor rents. and the little men of the mountain plaved their game, but none of these noises disturbed Rip. He slept on and on." "It was a bright sunny morning when Rip awakened and, sitting up rubbing his eyes to see where he was. he found him self on the same soft grassy bank where he had first met tha little old man, and wondered if he had slept there all night. "Wolf, his dog. was not there, and Rip s gun seemed so old and rusty that he thought the little men had been playing a joke on him, and had hidden his things, so he started to find the little rascals and make th*m give back his dog and gun. But when he tried to get up ha found himself stiff; he could hardly move; his clothes were torn and his beard had grown so long that he wondered whether he was himself or some one else." "Oh, my." exclaimed Betty. "Eut although he managed to stumble to the place where he had left the little men playing nlne-plns, he could not see a sign of them that morning. Instead of the clearing there were trees and bushes and not a trace was left of the men or the keg or the nine-pins or the jugs. Nothing but wild and dreary mountains all around him. "Rip whistled for Wolf time and time again, but no nice old dog scampered to meet him, and then poor old Rip felt very lonely, and he began to think that ho was very hungry and far from home. So he decided to give up his hunt for the lost dog and gun and go back and ask Dame Van Winkle's forgiveness for his going awav from home again. Jack stopped for breath and Betty said laughingly that he needed a rest on the s-*?py mountain bank, too. "Tou can finish the story after we cut out these Dictures tor cne stage," she explained. They pasted the tree. No. 1, on the knoll a' the left of the stage so that the top branches fitted the frame of the picture. Rip No. 2. on his grassy bank was put in the right corner of the stage with the little man. No. 3. at the top, just above his arm. and No. 4. sitting above his head No. 5 came on the stage at the left side so that his head overlapped the foot of the tree a little, and No. ? walked ahead of him, and No. 7 was put in that corner near the frame of the stage. Next they pasted No. 8 no that his hat lapped over the long root of the big tree, and No. 9 came a little to his right so that one of his arms lapped over No. ?, and the other over No. 8. as if he were talking very earnestly. No. 12 was next put at the foot of Rip's ?oft couch with No- 11 a little to the back and side of him and No. in lapping over No. 11. a little more behind. * Rip a gun.

While the school garden movement had its origin In a desire to furnish occupa tion for the mental and physical ener gies of school children in the larger cities. Its development has resulted in the discovery o( latent possibilities iu the plan that may prove a big factor in solving the economic problem of the home. Experience of the last few years has given some hint of the astonishing amount of vegetables that may be raised on small plots of ground well tilled, and the utilization of these waste spaces may go far toward piecing out the limited in comes of families and materially reduc ing the outlay for table necessities. New York furnishes a striking illustra tion of the enthusiasm with which city children undertake the work of garden ing. A vacant city lot located in a thickly settled district has been cut up Into "farms" that are just four feet one way by eight feet the other, and each of these land parcels has been put under the care of a email boy or girl to be farmed. There were ten applicants for each of the plots, and the successful ones last year enjoyed, perhaps for the first time in their lives, real fresh, crisp vegetables of their own raisins. Those in charge report that it has proved a great source of health and happiness to the children as well as of some profit to the parents. Mother's Greatest Hope. From the London Catholic Times. "William," she said, "means good. James mean beloved. I wonder?" A flush mantled her cheek. "I wonder," she softly murmure'd, ''what George means." "George means business, I hope," said mother, looking up from the Eaater wed ding announcements in the evening paper. Chinese Naturalisation Laws. From the West minuter Gazette. The Chinese government has Just de cided upon the following important nat uralisation laws besides others of minor significance: 1. Foreigners wishing to become Chinese subjects must first of all be without other nationality, and in the second place must have resided in China ten years. Even tlien the sanction of the ministry of the interior must be obtained. ?J. Chinese wishing to become naturalis ed subjects of other countries must under all circumstance* obtain tha consent of the minis.ry t>f the interior. They can In no other wuy divest themselves of their Chinese nationality. 3. Chines* women wishing to marry for eigners must obtain the consent of the ministry of the interior before they can divest themselves of Chinese nationa Ity. There is much In the above rules to class with European laws or rules on this subject. Chureh Bells From Guns. From the London Chrorfefe. "God grant that the guns of battle may be melted into bells of worship." That was what was said the other day by Dr. Alexander, Primate of all Ireland, and that was also what wis done years ago by the man of whom, perhaps, It waa least to have been expected?to wit. Field Marshal von Moltke, the "battle thinker," the greatest war-maker or, at least, wgr wager of his time. After the war of 1870 the old kaiser pre sented Moltke with several guhs that hsd been captured from the French, and ons of these the marshal had melted down and converted into a new bell for the villaae church of Krelsau, near hie 81|e sian seat The Sabbath sound of this converted bell, acres? the peace ful summer meadows, said MoitkS ones to a violinist friend oi? a visit to him, ^.as the sweetest music be had *vsr heard.
