The poor man docs not need to have any very keen jealousies of the rich man for this Christmas, at uny rate." Stuyvesant Fish gave that note of encouragement to his less wealthy American brethren last night. And Mr. Fish had a lot more to say of general conditions in the United States.

"Yes, the so-called poor man is pret ty well off, taking it altogether," went on the New Yorker who is fighting one of the hottest battles of his life lor control of the Illinois Central rail road. "Hut what about the financial situa tion ?" "Oh, the rich man gets the worst of it," said Mr. Fish.

Fatrona of the New Phillips are es pecially interested this week in the nppearauce of Miss Eva Bay. the wonderful mind reader and scientific wonder worker and her performances of Monday afternoon and night were sufficient to convince the most skepti cal that she is a very clever woman, although she herself makes no claim to anything of supernatural nature. The first portion of Miss Ray's per formance is devoted to cabinet sean ces ! other strange manifestations. Two cabinets were used in the act, a large one and a small one, and in both she was alike successful in her work. A committee of three chosen from the audience Inspected the cabi nets, assisted in tying Miss Ray and saw that no deception was practiced. She readily rang be'ls, drank water from a glass placed in her lap, and did other things that nould seen-- possible for a woman -hose fe tied together, whose we back of her and whost .ieck was en circled in such a way that she could not bend forward. In the second part 'pf her performance Miss Ray presents MISS EVA RAY, Who Is Featured at the NeW Phillips This Week. a remarkable exhibition of mind read ing and telepathic power, said to be accomplished "while in a hypnotic state. She answers many questions, and calls many names while blindfold ed and covered with a sheet. Much amusement was secured from certain features of both parts of the perform ance. The stage setting of the second part is especially beautiful. It repre sents a Buddhish temple of years B. C. The work is from the Daniel scenic studio, Chicago, and the pic tures are copies of those furnished by Ch?cago, New York and Washington libraries. The robe worn by Miss Ray in this portion is said to be valu ed at $1,000 and was presented to her by a Bongu high priest while she was in India. Her assistants are suitably costumed. Friday the matinee will be exclusively for ladies. Other fea tures on the bill this week are E. J. Appleby, ban joist; the Kneedlers. musical comedy sketch and illustrated 6ong and motion pictures.

Gover nor Ilanly has notified President Roosevelt that he will participate with other state executives in a conference to be held at the white house in May next, for the purpose of adopting plans for the conservation of the natural re sources of the country.

THE FORMATION OF THE TRUST WAS BETWEEN CALIFORNIA GROWERS WHO WISHED TO SE CURE BETTER RATES. Is there a lemon trust? Richmond commission merchants say there is such an octopus and that within the last few years it has handed them many samples of that fruit not down in the original order. The company that "delivers the goods" not only to the local merchants, but to practically every market east of the Aocky moun tains and even many European ports, sails under the inoffensive title of the California Fruit Growers' Exchange. Compared with other alleged monopo lies it is an infant in years, having been in existence scarcely more than a decade: But for an Infant its growth has been marvelous, for within that short space of time it has, according to its local representative, expanded cO as to gather under its protecting wings the greater part of the orange and lemon trade of California. Its formation was due to the efforts of a small colony of fruit growers of southern California, who banded to gether, forming an association for their mutual protection, hoping to get better rates by making larger con signments. FREAK OF THE TIDES. At the Mouth of St. John River, Where Water Flows Up Hill. Speaking of freaks of the tide, there 1 Is nothing in this world to equal the phenomenon at the mouth of the St. John river, where water flows up hill and down twice daily. These revers ing falls are in a class by themselves in the world's natural curiosities. The rise of the tide in the bay of Fundy. which ranges up to sixty feet, averages at St. John harbor twenty eight or thirty feet. At the mouth of the St John river the great body of water is forced through a deep and narrow gorge. On j the one side of this gorge the harbor opens; above it the St. John river, i nearly &0O miles long, stretches away into the province of Quebec. When the tide in the bay of Fundy Is on the flow, the waters rkse with tuch rapidity that the level in the har bor becomes in less than an hour con siderably higher than the level in the j river. The water is forced through the gorge at such a rate that it literally falls up into the river, the height of this fall reaching at times fourteen feet. So great is the area of the river, so great is the amount of water rising in the harbor and so narrow is the gorge that It would take hours longer than the interval of any tide to bring the river level up to that of the harbor at high water. As a consequence, after the tide has turned and is on the ebb in the harbor, the level is still so much higher than the river that the tide in the river con tinues to rise for two or three hours, the water still falling upward. The same force works In the flow. After ihe water in the harbor has fallen until the level in the harbor and in the river are the same the fall downward besins. During the next few hours the harbor recedes until the drop from the river to the harbor Is as much as sixteen r seventeen feet at c very lor turns ln t over t i nfficient do. .i ward flov. At half tide something less navigation is Glob. '- Once more the ' comes op qnick rs elapse before counteract the the river mere Is a period of than an boar when impossible. Boston Great Scott! What makes all that smell." exclaimed Postmaster Speke.i hier, as he rushed out of his private office into the main corridors of the postoffice this morning. There the affable servant of the government found men, women and children, it II holding their noses and making their escape from the building as quickly as possible. The trouble was soon locat ed. An Italian had just been in the office and while at the stamp window the "son of sunny Italy," in attempt ing to And some change about his per son, accidentally dropped a large whis key bottle on the cement floor, with disastrous results. The bottle didn't contain whiskey, and that is the worst of it. None of the office attaches who assisted in cleaning it up will swear to that. In appearance they de clare it resembled nitroglycerin and as to smell a mixture of garlic and onions would have been the most rlofricate perfume in comparison. The stench finally became so repulsive that it was necessary to send to a local drugstore and procure some Chinese incense and burn it in the various de partments of the postoffice before the place was inhabitable. Mr. Speken hier says, "Of all the smells I ever smelt,, that smell was the worst smell ing smeii I ever smelt." THE TREE'S ROOTS. Something About What Is Called Plant Intelligence. As the animal is nearer to us than the vegetable, so is animal intelligence nearer akin to our own than plant in telligence. We hear of plant physi ology, but not yet of plant psychology. When a plant growing In a darkened room leans toward the light the lean ing, we are taught, is a purely me chanical process. The effect of the light upon the cells of the plant brings it about in a purely mechanical way, but when an animal Is drawn to the light the process is a much more com plex one and implies a nervous system. It is thought b.. some that the roots of a water loving, plant divine the water from afar and run toward it. The truth Is the plant or tree sends Its roots in all directions, but those on the side of water find the ground moister in that direction and their growth Is ac celerated, while the others are checked by the dryness of the soil. An ash tree stands n a rocky slope where the soil is thin and poor twenty or twenty five feet from my garden. After awhile it sent so many roots down into the garden and so robbed the garden vege tables of the fertilizers that we cut the roots off and dug a trench to keep the tree from sending more. Now, the gar dener thought the tree divined the rich pasturage down below there and reach ed for it accordingly. The truth is, I suppose, that the roots on that side found a little more and better soil and so pushed on till they reached the gar den, where they were at once so well fed that they multiplied and extended themselves rapidly. The tree waxed strong and every season sent more and stronger roots into the garden. John Burroughs in Outing Magazine. Didn't Know It Could B Done.

EDITOR IS DISHEARTENED. EMPEROR WILLIAM HAS PROM ISED THE ACCUSED THAT IF CHARGES ARE PROVEN FALSE, FAVOR WILL BE RESTORED. Berlin, Dec 24. Public sentiment has completely veered around and things look black for Editor Harden, of the Zukunft, who is being prose cuted criminally on charges of having libelled Count Cuno von Moltke. It is beginning to be felt generally that Moltke and Prince Philip zu Eulen burg have been cruelly injured. Their most solemn statements under oath that they are innocent of the charges have made a deep impression, espec ially because it is realized that penal servitude awaits them if they are proved guilty of perjury. Harden evidently has given up all idea of proving anything. His repeat- j ed efforts at settlement are evidence of this. One of Moltke's intimate friends tells that Moltke will never consent to a settlement outside of court; that he will be satisfied with nothing less than vindication in the court and a dismissal without a stain on his character. Emperor William has promised that if Moltke comes out of court com pletely rehabilitated ho will reinstate Mm with all his honors and military position.

Billheimer, auditor of 9t says that in the future when it comes to light that the owner of any privato bank has borrowed from the bank a sum in excess of 30 per cent, of the capital stock, ho will, unless the con dition be corrected, take charge of tho bank the taine as though the bank wcro hi an insolvent condition. Al though the section of the private bank ing law relating to tho borrowing of money does, not prohibit owners of banks borrowing money in excessive sums, Mr. Billheimer believes ho will be justified in the course which ho has outlined by Section 8 of the private banking law, which relates to failure of banks ami receivership proceedings. Section S says. In substance, that whenever it appears that the assets of. a private bunk are being wasted or improioiiy used or converted, the ex aminer shall notify the Auditor, and if the owners aro unable to satisfy the Auditor that they can correct the con dition, the Auditor Khali at once take charge of the bank, Mr. Billheimer will take tho position that when a sum equal to more than 30 per cent, of the capital stock of the bank is in the hands of an owner as' a borrower these funds aro In improper use.
