And later he expressed the idea from which the play gets .its name. Miss Revendai does not quite under- stand the fervor of the Jew. Then David: "Not understand!

The trip of Lieutenant VogtJ and Asman was replete with danger. , They were in the air more than twenty-eight hours and frequently traveled at the rate of a mile a min ute. Describing the perils of the latter part of the journey Vogt said: "Crossing Michigan we saw Lake Huron spread out ahead of us. It seemed one stretch of water after another. We crossed Lake Huron finally at Alpena at 3:10 p. m. and 12 West Adams Street. your sons of the soil.

David "Fires of hate, not fires of love;' that is what melts. The fire that melted me was the love America showed me the day she gathered me to her breast." three hours later found ourselves sailing over Canadian soil. At 0 p. m. I decided on landing as our bal last was getting low, but wo were again confronted with the water of Georgian bay. Finally we decided to descend and take our chances. At 11 p. m.

The average conception does not Include the thought of people who never saw snow, of a section of coun try resembling in topography, soli, climate and products the great de ciduous fruit valleys of California. Yet, of course, this Information might be obtained by a little research. But people are usually remiss in nothing more than their knowledge of geography and comparative pursuits in different lands. Such institutions as bring together men of various new and old world countries for an Inter change of knowledge - and ideas are, therefore, of inestimable value to all people. Such, an Institution has been the irrigation congress at Pueblo. Representatives from Australia, Rus sia, Germany and other foreign coun tries attended It and contributed to the sum total of information and wis dom in which it abounded. E.

Gardner, now 'under arrest, to buy his vote. Gardner was called to the stand and refused to testify. Robert Elder, first assistant, district attorney of Kings county (Brooklyn), repeated a conversation which he says he had with .Gardner last March, previously referred to as the "confession." The narrative created a sensation. Briefly, he told of a dinner at Del monico's, where there were prominent men friendly to the race tracks; of $500,000 subscribed to a corruption fund: of the distribution of the fund to politicians, and well-known Albany correspondents of New York news papers, and of the secret grievance of the late Senator Patrick McCarren, who worked for the passage of the bill. - George Tyrrell, .mentioned as re ceiving $3,000. and until January the Albany correspondent of the Brook lyn Eagle, testified t Gardner of fered him $300 at A1 and he said he had declined It.

It is expected that the work will occupy the. best part of the winter months and the result is expected to enhance the appearance of the city streets very materially. Heretofore the work of trimming the city trees has been performed in a somewhat unsystematized manner and with little regard for the beautify ing o the various thorougKfares. It is planned that the work shall here after be carried on by a man skilled in horticulture with, the end in view of making every thoroughfare 33 beautiful as possible. For the present Mr. Blackmere will be engaged 6y the street department, but it is believed that later, on it mny be possible to induce the council to engage him permanently- and that through his efforts mucli new tree planting - may be done in a manner tending to add to the appearance of the streets. Most of the California cities the size of Phoenix have a landscape gar dener or horticulturist under, whose supervision the beautifying of the city, streets is carried on.

O-; BALLOTS BY THE YARD. " Because of the privilege of the initi ative and referendum enjoyed by the OreKon voters, they will this year bj J called upon to mark a ballot which will measure ix feet in length, without the? 'additional length necessary for the i names of county delegates. The offi , ciaT ballots have been received from the state printer and the list of state can ididates and state initiative meaures brings the ballot to a length of six feet. In many of the counties the ad iditlon of county candidates and initi ative questions will lengthen the bal lots to upwards of eight feet.
