Premier Asquifh Accepts Resignation of Secretary For War in British Cabinet
HARRISBURG SfiSSilS TELEGRAPH LXXXIII— No. 75 SAYS IT'S PITY GON CANNOT BE USED ON FLOWER DESTROYERS Physician Declares That Climbing Through Woods Is Best Spring Tonic DENUDING WETZEL'S SWAMP Vandals Have Been Tearing Rare Blooms Up by Roots Until They Are Disappearing "It's u swat pity a sun cannot l»o used in such lust's." In this trite way Dr. J. H. Fager, botanist, naturalist and out-of-door man, laments that those who tear up the tender flowers of Spring cannot be duly punished. Dr. Fager has written a letter to the Telegraph, in which he makes a stirring plea that folks refrain from rooting up the flowers when they are on hikes through the woods. Dr. Fager, who is one of the city's best known physicians, also offers the sug gestion that there would be a great deal less sickness in the world If people would spend more time in the fields and woods. He declares there Is no better tonic than climbing in the woods In searc hof birch, sassafras, slippery elm and so on. Dr. Fager's letter is as follows: Ti* the Editor of 7he Telegraph: The cartoon tn Saturday's Telegraph was enjoyed by my many friends as well as by myself, and it was nearer ♦he truth than you thought. Some times not only close examination is ■necessary, but often you take a slide in the mud, or a dip in the creek, or perhaps you are Impaled on the barbed wire fence in your efforts to find the lirst wild flowers. Old Wetzel's swamp was formerly the favorite hunting ground, but year by year its hills are being denuded and the search must be prosecuted in more secluded glens. Pew Resist Desire There are a few people who can re sist the desire to dig up everything in sight, who enjoy going year after year and seeing the wonderful displav without destroying the plants; but the greater number go with big baskets and greedily tear every flower and root from the earth. It's a great pity a gun cannot be used in such cases. f ast Friday a friend and mvself, hunting independently, found quanti ties of hepaticas, or liverwort, blood root, euxil'rage, toothwort and ane uivmy. The bees were working these early flowers. But still earlier the bees visit the simploearpus (thi.s sounds better than to tell its other name, skunk cabbage). Besides the awakened vegetation the air is full of life and the most conspicuous butter fly, and one seen the earliest, is the mourning cloak, purplish brown tn color, with yellow margins, edged with a row of blue spots. The mourning cloak hibernates in barns, tree stumps and wood plies and comes out early Lots of birds were seen and heard I mustn't forget to mention the patient fisherman with rod and line and also with dipnets making wonderful water hauls. As to Tonics I know of no better tonic for any person than a climb In the woods searching for something—birch, sassa fras, slippery elm, wild cherry, flowers birds, arrow heads, butterflies—any thing only so you are hunting for something with as much steam as you put into your work for bread and meat Go into the woods for a day and drink your fill from the many ex cellent springs, and if you must eat, live on what Nature has prepared - birch, sassafras buds, water cress and the different mints, digging un the bulbous roots of th* toothwort and the Indian cucumber, which reminds you of cucumbers. After such a day "if we carry nothing home in our bas kets, there Is ample gain in dilated lungs and stimulated blood." J- H. PAGER. I)R. SMITH ILL The Rev. J.

INJUNCTION HILTS SPECIAL ELECTION IN PHILIELPI Citizens of Quaker City Will Not Be Permitted to Vote Tomorrow By Associated Press Philadelphia, March 30.—The State Supreme Court to-day issued an in junction against the city of Philadel phia from holding the special election to-morrow on the proposed loan of $12,900,000 and also declared invalid tho election last November authoriz ing a loan of $8,600,000. All city and county officials having anything to do with tho matter are enjoined front holding the election and all officials having to do with the disbursing of Itie $8,000,000 loan authorized by the elec tion last November are enjoined. The decree of tho court was read from the bench by Justice Mestrezat. Justice Elkin dissented. Justice Mestrezat will file a written opinion later. Taxpayer Causes Action The action was brought by Fred erick T. McGuire, a taxpayer. The principal question was whether that part of the city's debt assumed by the Board of Education when it be came a separate body under the school code can be legally deducted from the municipal bonded indebtedness. It was held by the applicant for the in junction that when the $8,600,000 loan was created the borrowing capacity of the city was about $2,000,000, while at present the borrowing capacity is only $6,729,308, or much less than the amount of the proposed new loan. Counsel for the petitioner asserted that the debt of more than $6,000,000 contracted for school purposes and as sumed by the Board of Education, still was an obligation of the city. The city, it was declared, would be liable In the case of nonjudgment of the bonds at maturity and therefore this indebted ness must be included in the gross lia bilities of the citw. It was further argued that the proposed loan could not be made, taking Into consideration the unnegotiated $8,600,000 loan, which must be regarded in the present debts of the city. Michael J. Ryan, the city solicitor, opposed the Injunction when the case came up for argument last week, de claring both the authorized loan and the proposed new loan to be within the law. HARRISBURG; PA.,.
