From Cincinnati comeB the sug gestion, probably originated by Chair man Herrmann, of the National Com mission, that all ante-season contests between American and National League clubs be played under tho auBpices of the commission, as is tho case with the series for the world’s championship each fall. Practically the only objection that will be made to the suggestion is the financial one, that th$ games are arranged as exhi bition ntraire only, for the purpose of training trips, and that tho receipts of the club owners will be curtailed considerably if the proceeds are shared with the players and with the National commission, as would he the case if the games were played under the same conditions as those govern ing the world's series. Those condi tions provide for deducting 10 per | cent, of the gross receipts for tile commission, and then giving the play ers GO per cent, of the remainder of the receipts from the first four games of a series. Iu few cases will there be as many as four games in a series next spring. to dignifying spring exhibition games by putting them In the same class with the tnter-league series of the fall 1 season, which would be the result if j the commission assumed charge. There Is a big difference, also, be tween games which are played be tween the two Philadelphia and the two St. Louis clubs In the spring, and those which are scheduled to be play ed In New Orleans, for instance, be tween the Athletics and New York Nationals. There is need, however, | of some method of insuring to the ! public that Inter-league games, when- ' ever and wherever played, will he properly conducted under baseball law, and of punishing any deed or act of player or manager in such games which may Injure the sport. Better than anything else would be a law prohibiting ante-season games between major league clubs, and compelling nil such series to be play ed in the fall under control of the j commission. Spring contests are I nothing but tests of early condition, and are hazardous affairs at best. The rivalry between clubs Is liable to , tempt a player to extend himself far-! (her than his condition or the weath-I er will permtl. In the fall such games are a fair test of the relative strength of two teams which have finished a pennant campaign and are supposed to be in condition to play to their limits without injury. Even if injuries result from the fall series they Will not handicap a club in its pennant race, as would be ahe case if players are hurt or overdo things in spring games just before the start of a championship season. Some leg-1 islation along these lines will bo a1 wise move, before there are serious results from the scramble for early dollars. -I TO CONTEST AT SWITZER'S. 1 The February high bowlers on the Utopia alleys will bowl for the month ly prizes of $5, $3 and $2 tonight.

The process of drying and bleaching of the woods and strings by the hot Italian sun, rather than by the artificial method used in other countries, accounts in a great measure for the superior quality of both materials.. This intense heat! was also the reason for the slow dis- j filiation of the oils used by the Ital ian makers, which always remained at a high temperature, and the vac-, nish, slowly soaking into the woods of the violins beneath the heat, Of those Italian summers, produced, in part, the mellowness of tone that | gives to a Cremona instrument its i value, after a lapse of two hundred j or more years.—Elizabeth Mitchell j Stephenson, in the March Circle.

Come forth and behold him, the Grand Old Standpatter, Whose mind Is so fearfully plain, Beside him all ogle seems mad as a hatter And only the Tariff looks sane. First reared on a farm, with an old fashioned notion Of duty to honor’s last ditch. He stands like a rock in his simple devotion, A stanch, honest friend of the Rich j When rural admirers grow genial and think on The Shore Acres cut of his chin, They rashly compare him to Abra ham Lincoln—. And that’s where delusions come in. Enthusiasts laud him from belfry to steeple, Forgetting the truth, as they must, That statesmen are seldom so close to the People As when they are hugging some Trust. So, when he's at rest front Congres- j slonal duties, To greet him the populace flow: Strong men from Frog Centre and t Keg County beauties And babies to kiss Uncle Joe. With toghs of homcspune his shoul- i ders they kiver, Which moves the avuncular heat \ So deeply and well that he's forced to deliver Hliis favorite Lecture on Art. “The High Art," he says, “both en lightens and broadens Wherever the High Tariff whoops. I ain’t so durn stuck on that feller Salnt-Gaudens, Rut say, I like Rogers's groups! “And why to them foreign-made drawings and sketchings Do free-born Americans smirk? If Europe feels proud of her paint ings and etchings, We're proud of our Burnt Leather Work!” Thus high-angle fire at the ramparts of Beauty The mouth of the Cannon doth dart; Though Ruskln, perhaps, rested art niton Duty, J. C. puts a duty on Art. A BRIDE’S ORI EL REBUFF. A story is going the rounds of the army and navy concerning a young bride and groom who came to Wash ington for their honeymoon. One day the groom was not feeling very j well,'and the bride suggested that' while he lay down aud rested, she would do some shopping, and having established the . gentleman comforta bly on the couch, the little lady de parted. In several hours she returned with ! her arms full of bundles and the pride of possession in her heart. She came confidently to a door in the long corridor and tapped. “Hero I am, honey.” No answer. “Honey, honey! It’s me. Open the door, honey.” Silence within thto room. The little bride began to feel discouraged, but she called and tapped more vig orously than ever. “Honey, honey, open the door. I’m back.” Dead silence Inside the room, and the iady wniting outside the door be gan to have dread visions of serious illness Inside, or else a creeping fear that the bridegroo had forgotten her and departed in search of some of his old time bachelor friends. Still, she made a final effort. “Honey, are you very ill?” Shall I get the doctor, honey?” She tapped long and loud this time, and when she paused a gruff voice shouted from inside: “There’s no honey here. This Isn't a beehive—it s a bathroom.”—Joe Mitchell Chappie’s “Affairs at Wash ington,” in the National Magazine. A LOST ART IN VIOLIN MAKING. The Cremona varnish disappeared about 1760, and so far the recipe has not been rediscovered. Whether it was a gum or an oil or a distillation from some plant or a chemical Is not known, nor how it was mixed. Many theories regarding it have been ad vanced from tin^e to time; and Dod. who died in 1830, claimed to have rediscovered it. He employed others to make his violins, but always var nished them himself. His varnish is very superior, and his violins com mand high prices. The varnishing and polishing of a violin are done usually by a woman. It requires time and practice, for the finest in struments are gone over as often as thirty times.—Elizabeth Mitchell Stephenson, in the March Circle. Advertising in the NEWS brings good results "CUBA’S MALADY." Frignds write me from the north, asking: "How did It happen? What Is the truth? Forswear your jour nalistic pyrotechnics and forget for once the existence of Ananias.” The "National” shall answer them all. 'Tis a tale Arcardian in its simplicity. A weak executive, surrounded by un scrupulous politicians, ergo, grafters. Palma, a dear old gentleman. Was not by character or training fit to govern men. He never did, even in the days of the Cuban Junta in New York when brainy men, like Rubens, sway ed him at their will. He was theli show piece, and put forward on ac count of his earnestness and almost fanatical patriotism, and unquestion ed moral rectitude. Palma was force ful only in pleading for Cuba and asking for financial assistance. One day he decided that it behooved hint to buy a hat, after being urged to do so repeatedly by his intimates. He espied a small shop on Broadway, and, vaguely thinking that the price would be small in proportion, select ed a hat and, without asking the price, had his initials stamped on the band. The salesman said, "Five dol lars!” It was a Knox. He excited ly rushed into the offices of the Junta, exclaiming: "\yhat do you think, gen tlemen; five dollars for a hat!” This incident, insignificant per se, serves merely to show how unworldly In was. How, then, could he govert and check the intriguing Latin-Amer lean politician and office-seeker? Bu Roosevelt knew that he was honest and as the chairman or tne .innra he was the logical candidate for pres ident. The men he confided in be came bolder, and planned to perpet irate the Moderate party in powei forever. They resorted to method! of oppression and persecution. The; did not play fair. They wanted it all and the Liberals, who would havr been contented to take the leavings found that, like the boy in the cerea advertisement, “there ain't going tc be no leavings,” and took to th< woods. In justice to Cuba's first civ! war, whatever the ultimate objee may be of its projectors and leaders there was some excuse and justiflea tlon. Theirs was really an armed protest (they claim); a militarily organized strike to attract the atten tion of the United States to the rea condition of affairs. They succeeded and it was assuredly a most bloodless war.—John Vavassour Noel in Na tional Magazine. RACIAL ELEMENTS IN WISCONSIN, (From Wardon Allan Curtis’ “The Light Fantastic in the Central West" In the Century.) I am speaking of Wisconsin, be cause it happens to be the state where I have pursued my ethnological stud ies, and because it epitomizes the cen tral west. No other western state has such a diversity of racial ele ments. Illinois alone, with its queer colony of Portuguese Protestants at Jacksonville,, has an element which Wisconsin has not. None but Wis consin has Bulgarians and Flemings. T . 1... T .. .1 I .. „n.„<1nllnii nf nem 8,000. It Is the greatest Welsh, Cor nish, Norwegian, and German state. It has Icelanders with Minnesota, Bohemians with Iowa, and French, Fins, and Hollanders with Michigan. The oldest and only purely Hungarian colony in America is on its soil, and the largest colony of Swiss. It has a native white element ns old as the Knickerbockers, and even English descended families who go back lf>0 years on Wisconsin soil. HOW GOOD IS CONCRETE? tfuder the above title Walter Lor ing Webb, C. E., writes in the Tech nical1 World Magazine for March a careful study of the merits and de merits of reinforced concrete as a building material. He says: "A building material that will not rust or decay and that will not he subject to the attacks either of in sects or of atmospheric acids; that will he fireproof and earthquake proof and capable of supporting heavy loads over long spans—a ma terial that has all theso virtues and still is not prohibitively costly—such a material would be close to ideal And the material that most nearlj I meets these essential requirements land that is daily undergoing tests with credit, is reinforced concrete.’ He then follows with a long dis mission upon the subject, admirabl: well handled and thoroughly reada bio and understandable for the aver age reader.

"No more Chinese or reluctant kaffirs; but labor from one great central ‘mill' as it were, driven by the mile wide Zambesi through its fall of 4 00 feet," says W. G. Fitz Gerald, in an article on the tremen dous new water power in South Afri ca, which apepars In the Technical World Magazine for March. "Tht diamond mines of Kimberley should profit too—those queer volcank pipes’ front which have been won sixty tons' weight of glittering gew gaws, whose value can hardly be com puted in figures. And the Transcon tiriental Railroad should be electri fied by the same power; quarries and ’orests developed, and electricity ransmitted on vastly increased Niag tra lines to the gold fields of Mazoe. Tart ley and l.o Maghunda, as well as o light the fast growing cities of Salisbury, Gwelo and Buluwgyo. Tel • egraphs and telephones, too—but why continue the list? The force of the Falls is to be the new heart of Africa in the more literal sense that its power will drive life in all direc tions through the Dark Continent.” I - WHEN THE CARLYLES MARRIED. When they finally decided to be married there was another long delay much discussion as to where they should live, and another difficulty in the shape of Mrs. Welsh, now left alone in the world. As the day for dreaded ceremony approached Miss I Welsh wrote to him: “Oh, my dearest friend, be always so good to me, and l shall make the best and happiest wife. When I ,I read in your looks and words that lyou love me, then 1 care not one | straw for the whole universe besides. 1 But when you fly from me to smoke | tobacco, or speak of me as a mere I circumstance of your lot, then, in ! deed, my heart is troubled about many things.” I The ceremony itself was regarded ! by both of them as some terrible ca lamity, Carlyle prepared himself for the ordeal by reading Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason. Miss Welsh headed her last letter to him: “The Last Speech and Marrying Words of That Unfortunate Young Woman, Jane Baillie Welsh.” He wrote in reply: “After all I believe we take this impending ceremony too much to heart. Bless me! Have not many peojjle been married before now?— From “The Love Affairs of Thomas I Carlyle,” by Myrtle Reed.____ MACHINK DIOS DITH'HES. ^ Tlie following interesting Item la clipped from the Technical World for March. With a small traction ditcher, tjffo -men can do the work of fifteen labmflH ers working with spades and shdrSlM els, and of 100 men when the large traction ditchers are employed. The traction ditcher consists fit a \ traction engine, in tne rear end of ^ which is mounted an excavatlnb:i!j|i wheel provided with excavating buck-'^* ets fastened to its circumference. This excavating wheel is open, that is to oS say,"it has no axle, but it revolves upon anti-friction wheels placed just outside of tho rim of the excavating tj wheels. The buckets have a top and back, but no bottom. They are shap ed somewhat like the bowl t»f a drag scraper: and, in fact, they act very much like a drag scraper in digging, ton,as the excvaUng wheel revolves, / each excavating bucket cuts off a slice of earth which fills the bucket. When the excavating bucket reaches the end of the arc near the top of tH wheel the dirt falls out of the bucket upon a belt conveyor. This trench excavator cut the full \ depth of the trench at one stroke, a'nd leaves the bottom exactly In the grade desired. The operator sights along the sight arm at the targets on the llag poles provided, and operates a hand wheel that raises or lower the excavating wheel until Use sight arm is at the proper level. In this way the operator has perfect control over the depth to which the exvacatlng wheel cuts, and he can keep the bot tom of the wheel within a fraction of , tin inch of tho desired brade. By tlie use of this modern ma chinery three lineal feet of trench can be dug per minute In ordinary eartli to a depth of three feet, and at tills rale, one machine would dig 180 lineal feet per hour, or 1,800 feet per working day of ten hours.
