SCHOOL GARDENS
While the school garden movement
had its origin tn desire to furnish
ccnpatlon for the mental and phy
sical energies of school children In
the larger cities Its development has
resulted In the discovery of latent
possibilities In the plan that may
prove a big factor In solving the eco
nomic problem of the home says the
St Paul Dispatch Experience of the
last few years has given some hint
of the astonishing amount of vege
tables that may be raised on small
plots of ground Veil tilled and the
utilization of these waste spaces may
go far toward piecing out the limited
incomes of families and materially re
ducing the outlay for table necessi
ties New York furnishes a striking
illustration of the enthusiasm with
which city children undertake the
work of gardening A vacant city
lot located In a thickly settled dis
trict 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 small boy or girl to be
farmed There were ten applicants
for each of the plots and the success
ful ones last year enjoyed perhaps
for the first time in their lives real
fresh crisp vegetables of their own
raising Those In charge report that
it has proved a great source of health
and happiness to the children as well
as of some proQt to the parents
Recently there was a flurry
among patriots because a Canadian
fishing cruiser captured an American
schooner which it was alleged was
fishing within the three miles limit
and thercforo liable to seizure Out
the excitement soon slbsided Inter
est of a contrary character will now
be excited by a report that the
United States authorities in Alaska
have captured a number of Japanese
seal poachers who were engaged in
their nefarious work when the patrol
boat happened along the coast There
are fishermen everywhere who In
cline toward violations of the law

The story from Kingston St Vin

THE MAHONING BISEATOH FRIDAY JUNE 4 1909
THE EXPECTANT HAND
No Charge Made But a Present of
Money Not Refused
In recording an lllnes of his grand
father Gen John Watts De Peyster
telis an amusing story in connection
with Indian hemp It is printed in his
biography by Mr Frank Allaben
Indian hemp was recommended as
a remedy during my grandfathers ill
ness but where to get it was tho
question Finally some one said it
was grown In tho garden of old Mr
Henry Brevoort who owned a large
plot on the east side of Broadway ex
tending through to tho Bowery above
Tenth street Grace Church stands on
part of this ground
Doctor Blbby gave me some money
told me to Jump into his gig drive up
to Brevoortsold low storied cottage
house on the Bowery and tell the
owner that I wanted some Indian
hemp for my grandfather John Watts
I was to use diplomacy if neceF3ary
but not to return without 1L
I trotted along briskly roused Mr
Brevoort from a nap stated my case
found no demur and got the Indian
hemp which he dug up with his own
hands
How much am I to pay I ques
tioned
I never sells It Mr Brevoort re
plied because If I takes money for
Indian hemp It weakens the vartoo
I Btated that I was ordered to pay
and we discussed the matter walking
across the garden toward tho gig
which I had left on Broadway
I bad made up my mind that I had
met with a disinterested Christian
had replaced tho money In my pocket
nnd had my foot on tho gig step when
I felt a brawny sunburnt freckled
hand restraining mc and heard these
words whispered in my ear I never
eells Indian hemp for that weakens
tho vartoo but If I gives it I never
refuses a present
I extricated the money confided to
mc placed it in tho expectant hand
hurried homo and related my story
and I have heard It laughed over
many times
Newsboys
It Is good to hear that measures aro

York newsboys writes N N Mooro
In N Y Home Journal I dont mean
newsboys as a class for they are gen
erally an Independent and self-respecting
set I mean tho tired llttlo fellows
who beseech one to buy an evening
paper at about tho hour when tho
morning paper Is coming off the press
There Is said to bo In tills city no

quired to do this sort of work Thero
certainly ought to bo Boston licenses
and I bellovo uniforms Its newsboys
and Now York ought to havo followed
Bostons example long ago Some of
theso boys nro too bright to bo left to

How tho Frog Changes Color
The chameleon changes his huo
witn his environment A short timo
ago who could venture to point out
all the molecular and ethereal vibra
tions whereby the chain of action is
made complete between external en
vironment and peripheral tissue
change Yet Sollaud found that the
pigmentary changes by virtue of
which the frog harmonizes itself more
or less with tho color of its environ
ment are governed by two sorts of
nerves It results from the action of
two reflexes both originating in tho
retina and by his investigations he Is
able to map out the paths from tho
brain to the periphery by each of the
reflexes Now let us picture to our
selves the delicacy of this process
First the green foliage causing vibra
tions in the ether in certain wave
lengths sets up certain molecular vi
brations In the retina which trans
lated to the brain issue forth at the
periphery in such form that neither
the skin nor the pigment granules in
It are changed Irreversibly but cer
tain molecular combinations are made
for the time or certain intramolecular
changes of the atomic structure are
6et up In the pigment for the time by
virtue of which a projective color is
given t6 the animal
Census of the Bison
lae Journal of the New York Zoo
logical Society gives a census of the
American bison according to which
in place of all the hundreds of thou
sands of those animals which formerly
roved the plains only 2047 were
known to be in existence on January
1 1908 Of these 969 were In captiv
ity in the United States and 41 in
Canada Since that date the Pable
herd has been sold to Canada

Parallel Between Wet and
Dry Counties is Deadly
-
The Dry side of the present argument is the optimis
tic side but it is an optimism based on fact The Wet
contention is one of gloom and calamity The liquor
forces can see nothing bright in a future from which
booze is eliminated
But human experience does not bear out the Wet
argument It is all the other way The best argument
the Drys have in this fight isDry territory The strong
est reason for making Mahoning county Dry is the exper
ience of other Dry Counties
Harrison county for example has been Dry for five
or six years by reason of the operation of the Beal and
other Local Option laws In parallel columns below is a
display of facts which should make every citizen of Ma
honing county take notice
It is a deadly parallel While Mahoning county is
about four times more populous than Harrison and the
items given in the Harrison county coulmn should be
multiplied by four to make them correspond on the basis
of population to the Mahoning county column the par
allel is none the less deadly
In bonded indebtedness that curse of saloon-controlled
cities the showing is all in Harrison countys
favor Tho total bonded indebtedness of Mahoning coun
ey instead of being four times as great as that of Harri
son IS THIRTY ONE TIMES GREATER
Our per capita indebtedness is nine times greater
We sent eight boys to the industrial school last year Har
rison county sent none We had over fifteen times as
many persons confined in jail as Harrison Murder cases
here numbered six in Harrison county none Sixteen as
saults with intent to kill were committed here within tho
year in Harrison county none There were eleven times
as many assault and battery cases in this as in Harrison
county
Petit larceny cases numbered twelve times as many
There were no cases of malicious destruction of property
in Harrison an even dozen here IN BRIEF THE TO
TAL NUMBER OP PROSECUTIONS FOR THE YEAR
IN HARRISON NUMBERED SIX IN MAHONING
THREE HUNDRED AND NINE
Now turn to the other side Men of Mahoning County
In per capita tax value Harrison is ahead of us although
the natural resources of Mahoning county aro greater
than those of Harrison HARRISON COUNTY RE
