NEW YORK, April 25—The second

ciety in America since Its reorganiza
tion, and the tenth in the history of the
movement in this country, opened in
Madison Square (Jarden concert hall to- I
day. Delegates from the branches of f
the society in America, as well as prom- |
tnent representatives from England,
Ireland, Canada. Venezuela and Hoi- |
land numbering fully 300 were presented
when Acting President J. N. Buck of
Cincinnati called the convention to or
der. Boston sent a delegation of
eighty-four members from various
branches in that city. Among the del

E. B. Rambo. Dr. J. A. Anderson. San
Francisco; Alpheus Smith. Mrs. A. D.
Leonard. C. A. Oles. Mrs. S Pratt and

Nashville; V. R. Acheson and Anne ti.
Acheson. Youngstown, O.; J. D. Bond,
Fort Wayne. Ind.; M. A. Opperman,
Pittsburg; Mrs.Julla Verplanck Keight
ley. Philadelphia.
Acting President Buck delivered the
opening address. After dwelling upon
the work accomplished by the society
during the past year and its present
prosperous condition, he referred touch
lngly to the late leader, AVilliam Q,
"Our leader was stricken with a fatal
disease." he said. "Yet, so well had he
done his work; so compact had proved
the organization he had formed, that
even now, when we have to record his
disappearance from the field of work
we record a steady advance in the The
osophical society work. Space nor time
can measure, nor can sickness and
death defeat, the accomplishment of
the work in which we are engaged.
By and bye the world at large will real
ise as we do now the meaning and value
of that work. Then will the names of
H. P. Blavatsky and William Q. Judge
be honored for and measured by their
share in the work. Then will the world
learn why we honor their memory to
"But that day will not come until,
with dissolving creeds and the blight of
materialism, humanity cries with bleed
ing heart and weary feet for the pearls
of truth from the great fountain of
wisdom, that the great tolling, striving
masses do not now understand, do not
desire nor seek, and sometimes scorn
and ridicule the idea of the existence
of certain knowledge, which only proves
how low our civilization has sunken in
the slough of materialism already. The
external Indifference and internal se
renity with which we face misrepresen
tation and ridicule has surprised even
tur detractors. It never seems to oc
cur to them that they are openly con
victing themselves and that they are
too ignorant of the subject even to be
decently ashamed.
"People are ready to listen. If we fail
or grow weary we deserve only the
scorn and contempt nf mankind. Our
literature extends backward to the
dawn of history. Our grand masters
laid the foundations of the pyramids;
solved the riddle of the sphinx and
mapped out the constellations. The
mystics of Greece, from Pythagoras to
Plato, learned" their secrets and became
immortal in the memory of man. The
shepherd kings and the wise men of the
past are our elder brothers.
"What are all these hoary secrets but
a knowledge of the origin, nature and
destiny of man and the methods of his
higher evolution? We can demonstrate
this step by step, and so help to restore
the lost chord in the weary pllgrtmage
of the human soul. This is the mission
Of theosophy. Some of us recognize the
power that is hack of this movement.
We do not work unaided and alone. The
best we can do is to open up a way for
those wiser than we to work for the
same great end."
E. B. Ramii was chosen temporary
chairman and Eliott B. Page of New
York was named as permanent secre
tary. The chairman then appointed
committees on resolutions and creden
Claud Falls Wright nominated Dr.
Buck as permanent chairman, and he
was unanimously elected. The annual
reports of the secretary and treasurer
Were then read and approved.
Resolutions were adopted eulogizing
the president of the society. William Q.
Judge, and calling upon all members to
offer themselves anew upon the altar of
sacrifice and to pledge their lives, for
tunes and sacred honors to endeavor to
j-ush forward to its full completion that
ideal and perfect brotherhood of hu
manity which shall be without distinc
tion, creed or caste, and which was born
in America amid blood and tears in
177* i and reincarnated In 1563 and attain
ed its manhood In 1 SH«. until America
shall become that which the guardians
of the rate and Karma have already de
creed, the hope of humanity, the refuge
of the oppressed, the protector of the
iveak and the light toward which the
whole world may turn for encourage
ment and example.
The committee reported a resolution
denouncing in scathing terms the bar
tering of occult powers and the indis
criminate use of hypnotic powers by
the Ignorant upon the ignorant. Added
to the resolution was a section condemn
ing vivisection. Several delegates ob

LONDON, April 26.—The upward
movement of consols has been suddenly
checked by the announcement of Sit
.Michael Hicks-Reach, chancellor of the
exchequer, that the government has
suspended purchases for the sinking
fund, owing to the high prices of con
sols, and although it is difficult to see
what alternative course is open to th.
government, it is probable the uncer
tainty created will prevent a further
rise. The mining market was still in
active, owing to the dubious aspect of
African affairs, but all other markets
advanced on the week. American
bonds continue to be bought, but al
though an energetic attempt is belnp
made by the professional operators to
cause a rise In shares, the general public
cannot be tempted to speculate, and ru
mors of the stoppage of the Venezuela!,
negotiations have had a disturbing ef
fect. Central and union Pacific closed
firm on reports that congress would
take no action on their debts.
The week's advances are: Illinois

will say that the two factors who pro
nounce the celebration just closed a
grand success have made it what it
was. By this 1 mean that the press
and the public make or mar a cele
bration of this character. Tlie press
supported it with its hearty co-opera
tion, notwithstanding the fact that the
committee had decided that for the ben
efit of Southern California they would
expend dollars in eastern advertising
where they spent cents at home. The
public endorsed the enterprise by fur
nishing the sinews of war, without
which a Fiesta would be an impossibil
ity. The gentlemen who have consti
tuted the committees this year and who
have labored hard and earnestly are
to be eongratulateu for having the pub-
He sentiment in their favor.
"I attribute this condition to the fact
that the three commercial bodies of
this city had the management of the
Fiesta and thereby installed a confi
dence that assured a wise and judicious
stewardship of its affairs. And in addi
tion I desire to state that the public is
probably unaware of the extent to
which the success of the Fiesta is due
to the corporations. It has become the
custom to denounce corporations as
soulless, and if they are, their agents
here have certainly not proven them
eslves of that character. Without the
hearty co-operation of gentlemen like
Messrs. Wade, Crawley, Byrne, Wood,
Wincup, Sherman and Hook and others
some of whom kept the wires hot in re
questing or demanding favors from
headquarters for our executive commit
tee, we never could have realized such
satisfactory results or made the Fiesta
a success."
"The press has bestowed many com
pliments upon me and I would not be
human if I did not appreciate them, but
I am too well aware of how much of that
honor is due to others, who have worked
and planned for the success of the un
dertaking, to appropriate the lion's
share of that distinction. The commit
tee of thirty and the members of the
various sub-committees have all done
noble work, and the result of their ardu
ous labors is best shown in the success
ful termination of the several events
that composed the Fiesta. In fact, they
all "stood in" and "pulled together" for
success, and I believe that was tully at •
"To the executive committee, per- '
haps, was assigned the most laborious
and exacting duty, that of planning and
perfecting of the details. They were
charged with the creation of a harmoni
ous combination of many ideas and
i-.lnv»B tv»«* -oc-nrtn ji t .first jm nossl hi c of
realization. Out of what at Hrst seemed
chaos they have created a gorgeous
and unique display. And right here I
would like to state that the working
members of that committee, Messrs.
Willard. Pridham, Rule and Walton,
during five months of arduous labor for
the benefit of the city we all love, never
had a difference of opinion that could
not and did not quickly and amicably
adjust itself, and each of them is enti
tled to much praise and honor for their
share In making the Fiesta a success.
"To one of their number, however, we
are indebted to a greater degree than
any other of the hand of active work
ers for tho' great achievements, and that
is the quiet, unassuming secretary of
our committee, and of the chamber of
commerce, Charles Dwight Willard.
Through the long months of pressing
duties, even in the face of serious ill
ness, his strong hand never left the helm
and to his experienced and accomplish
ed guidance ls in a great measure due
the sate arrival at our destination.
The successful financiering of tne en
terprise, the constant endeavors to
make a NO. 8 shoe fit a No. .10 foot, is
due to his watchful eye. One of the
most serious and difficult problems
with which we had to cope was the
financial question, how and where to
raise the money to carry out our plans,
and where to economize without jeo
pardizing the success of the Fiesta.
How well he has succeeded in this per
plexing duty, the results have and will
show, and now, while the smoke of bat
tle still lingers over the field, 1 nomin
ate C. D. Willard for president of La
Fiesta de Los Angeles of ISO 7.
"With a Willard on the quarter-deck
and a Pridham. Rule. Walton and Wig
gins to assist in steering the ship, the
Fiesta of 1597 would give our city and
our state a world-wide reputation, not
exceeded even by New Orleans.
"There are many other factors that
have aided in making our Fiesta a
success, and T. am happy that the press
of this city and this state have given
credit and prominence where it was due.
We owe a debt of gratitude to the gra
cious and beautiful lady who lias ao
successfully carried out her difficult and
arduous part of queen of I.a Fiesta,
and also tn the charming ladle.' ot her
court. Long live the queen and her
"To the fire department and its
worthy chief, to Chief Glass end his ex
cellent force, to the ladies and gentle
men who made floral day an event long
to be remembered, io our noble school
children, and to many others wo are
greatly Indebted.
"Personally. Ihave done what I could
to create success, tind feel that I
am amply repaid for my fseble efforts
by the kind expansions of my friends
and the beautiful badge nt: knighthood
and diploma presented to me by the
hands of our beautiful oueen. and by the
kiss bestowetl by my little wt'.-s when at
midnight on Snturd.iv I informed her
that the Fiesta h-.d come ton success
ful close without loss of Jlf..' or veriona
In conclusion, I desire to express per
sonally and on behalf of the executive
committee our sincere regret that cir
cumstances prevented the father of La
Fiesta, Director General Max Meybcrg,
from witnessing the celebration this
year. We were more than pleased to
receive the assurances of his interest
and co-operation in I.a Fiesta through
a telegram that was published in these
Agricultural Experiment Stations
In a paper upon experiment stations,
published In bulletin No. 17 of the Ari
zona station, Director Devol of that sta
tion says: "There are now seventy
four experiment stations In the United
States, counting branch stations, in
which r,7d trained specialists are em
ployed. The range of investigation cov
ered by the experiment stations includes
the products of the farm, garden and
orchard, and the raising of domestic
animals, together with their study from
every point of view, from which lt ls
thought something may be obtained for
the good of the farmer, the study of the
soils, the waters and the climate In all
I heir relations to agriculture; the flora
and the Insect fauna and their relations
to man, his stock and his crops; in fact,
nearly all questions directly affecting
rural economy. The work of the sta
tions has already saved to the farmers
many times their cost, as has been
demonstrated again and again, Bach
of the stations publishes not less than
four bulletins a year and an annual re
port, which are distributed gratis by
the stations to all applicants wil bin
their respective states and territories
and usually to those engaged in farming
in other states or territories who may
apply for them. These bulletins con
tain the results of the Investigations
carried on by the scientific men forming
the station staffs."
Growing Tobacco
Dirertnr William Stowo Devol of thn
experiment station, Tucson, Ariz., fur -
nishos tho following brief directions foi
growing tobacco:
There is enough sreil In one package
to produce over 500 plants, if properly
treated. Select good soil containing
about half sand and place In a box about
2 by 3 feet In area and 3 or 1 Inches rli ep
and scatter the seed in narrow lines
across the box. Sprinkle tine 801 l ani
sand over the seed until just covered,
set in a moderately warm place and keep
the soil moist. The seed may be :it trti 1
out of doors under a Bhelter of brush,
lath or cloth. When the leaves attain a
diameter of three-fourth 1 : of an inch
give the plants the full sunlight, and
as soon as the leaves attain the siz-' of
a silver dollar set the plants in the Held
in rows. The rows should be aboUtS'.i
feet apart and the plants 2V4 to 3 feet
apart In the rows. The soil should ho
rich and well cultivated. Wet the plants
well before transplanting and do not let
them dry nnd wither aft r planting In
the field. Keep the surface of the soil
well stirred and mellow .about the plant;:,
cultivating with a horse cultivator ns
soon as the plants are large enough.
Pinch off the flower buds, as soon as
they appnr and at the same time remove
four of tive of the lower leaves, permit
ting about twelve leaves to remain upon
each plant to mature. All branches or
"suckers" appearing in the axils of the
leaves should be pinched out nnd ciire
should be taken to pick off nnd kil»all
worms as they appear. In about three
months the loaves will turn a greenish
yellow, and become thick and brittle,
breaking when bent between the fing
ers. The tobacco is then ready for har
Smut In Grain
To fret rid of smut in grain: "By the
latter "weather treatment the seed is im
mersed for a few minutes in scalding
water. The hot water kills the smut
spores without injury to the grain. The
water should be kept at a. temperature
of 132>2 degrees, not rising above 135.
degrees. A ten to fifteen minutes im
mersion ls recommended. In treating
large quantities of seed lt Is best to
first warm the grain by placing it for
a few minutes in warm water (110 to
130 degrees), as this will enable one to
keep tho first vessel of hot water at a
more even temperature. The grain
when Immersed In the large vessel of
hot water should be placed in a basket
or gunnysaek or any convenient uten
sil that will allow free and even access
to the hot water. After withdrawing
the seed from the hot water plunge it
into cold water and spread out to dry."
