THE mCIRIOXD PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGKAJI, MONDAY, JANUARY 4, 1909.
PAGE THIUHS. IllLY DOES HOT Kl'flW IMT HIS est w v e . ...w PLAUUVILL BE Chief Executive Trying to De cide Whether or Not He Will Deliver Address at Marshall Inaugural. GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE SUBMITTED THURSDAY Improbable That Legislature Will Do Any Business Prior To Inauguration Monday Next Week. Palladium Bureau. Indianapolis, Jan. 4. Arrangements are well under way lor the inauguration of Thomas R. Marshall as governor of Indiana, on Monday, January 11. The inaugura tion has been set for noon of that day and will take place in the corridor of the state house. Everybody will have a chance to shake hands with Marsh all on that day, as a reception will be held in the executive parlors of the state house immediately after the in auguration ceremonies are finished. O. A. Baker, custodian of the state house, announces that a speakers BUnd will be erected in the corridor of the first floor of the state house, directly In front of the entrance to the governor's office, which is just south of the rotunda. The stand will be decorated with the national colors and the executive parlors will be banked with palms and flowers. From this stand Marshall will deliver his inau gural address and message to the leg islature. It is customary for the In coming governor to combine his in augural address aiV message in one speech, and this planwiH be followed by Marshall, so it is said. What Will Hanly Do? Whether Governor .Hanly will make a speech at the inauguration of Mar shall Is not yet decided. Hanly says he does not know, but will decide in a day or two. He has been so busy with the preparation of his message to the legislature and with other mat ters that he says he has not had time to devote to anything else for some time i past. It will be recalled that Governor Durbin delivered a short ad dress at the Inauguration of Governor Hanly four years ago. : Governor Hanly's message will go to the legislature on next Thursday, the day the, session opens. It will be read in the house of representatives. The house and the senate will meet in joint session to hear the message read. Lieutenant Governor Miller will pre side over the Joint session. Hold Caucus Wednesday. It is believed that little, if any, busi ness will be transacted by the legisla ture prior to the inauguration of Gov ernor Marshall. Of course, the house will organize by the election of a speaker and a clerk. The democratic members of the house meet in caucus on the night of Wednesday, January 6, the night before the session opens, and select the speaker and clerk. When the session opens the next day It will be called to order by the sec retary of state, and the first business trill be the election of a speaker, gome democrat will get up and nomin ate the man decided on by the demo cratic caucus of the night before, and some republlcan will nominate a re publican for the place. The ballot will be taken and the democrat will be elected, because the democrats are in the majority In the house. The speak er, who will be Representative Thomas Honao, of' Seymour, beyond a doubt, will take his chair. Then the same formalities will be carried out in the election of a clerk of the house. Govw Hanly's Message. Then will follow the reading of the message of Governor Hanly. Hanly has always insisted on reading his own messages to the legislature at the opening of a session, but It is not known whether he will do so this time or not. If he does not it will be read by his private secretary, Luman K. Babcock. who is also a member of the house. This will be the first time each a thing ever happened in the etate, It Babcock reads the message. Hall's Inauguration. " The .inauguration of Frank S. Hall As lieutenant governor will take place at tne same time as Marshall's inau guratton. so the senate will be in ses aion four days before he alsumes the chair. During that time Lieutenant Governor Miller will preside over the tody. It la understood that no business will be transacted by either side of the house before the inauguration.except that which is absolutely necessary. It is likely that a bill will be passed mak ing appropriations for paying the ex penses of the session. This is always done and Is not a partisan matter. Then the speaker of the house - will probably appoint the standing com mlttees of the house, and the plunder committee will distribute the jobs. In the senate the republicans may caucus and decide to appoint all the commit- km. They have already decided to make all appointments and .they may as well make them at once and have done with it as to wait until Mr. Hall gets la the chair. The senate plunder committee will also have to get busy and hand out the jobs In that branch. This will include clerkships, the door keeper, assistant doorkeepers, steno graphers, pages, messengers, postmas- aasistanta and divers and sun- WOMAN CONTESTANT IN BIG AUTOMOBILE ENDURANCE TEST ' V N.ittifc i I urn -f't'yUr-M i Mini ' dry other helpers, about the same in number as the bouse appoints. Legislature to Wait. While all of this is going on and nothing being done in the way of legis lation it is likely that the senate and the bouse will both meet each fore noon for a few minutes and then ad journ until the next day, until after Marshall is inaugurated. In the evening of inauguration day there will be a big reception at the Propylaeum that promises to be one of the swel lest society events in many years. Invitations are now being sent out, about 400 in all. Has Address Finished. It is understood that Marshall has his address and message finished and that it is in the hands of the printer. While no information has been obtain ed by anyone as to what it will con tain, it is said that he made a remark the other day that indicated that he will not, at this session, recommend the creation of a public utilities com mission. It is known that Marshall favors such a commission, or at least an enlargement of the powers and jur isdiction of the railroad commission so as to give it authority over all kinds of public utilities, but it is said that he has not yet worked out a plan in his own mind that he . believes should be followed in creating such a commission or enlarging the power of the present one. Governor Hanly is working on his message, but had not finished it today. Nothing has been learned as to what it will contain and there is no one that even goes so far as to guess on it. It is possible, said Secretary Babcock, that the message may not be finished until the day it is delivered to the leg islature. CURIOUS FLORIDA HERB. Red Plant Which Feeds Upon Ants and Other Insects. Almost everybody knows there are such things as insectivorous or carniv orous plants, but it is doubtful if many know we have any such plants grow ing right here in southern Florida. Nevertheless there Is a plant, or, rath er, herb, growing here which is really insectivorous. It is likely that on account of its be ing extremely small it has. escaped attention. . In fact, it seems to have been overlooked by the botanists also, as we are unable to find it classed among the sensitive plants. This is an annual herb, and the en tire plant, including the flower, is of a deep rich red color. It rarely reach ed a height of more than three Inches and is never so broad. The leaves arc spatutate when undisturbed and pre sent many small flbrillae and secrete at their tips a tenacious fluid which is capable of holding the very small In sects, such as ante and the like, upon which it feeds. When any of these get lodged in the fluid and disturb these flbrillae the leaves slowly acquire a deep cut shape and sometimes curl completely up over their victim. When they have absorbed the Insect they slowly recover their original shape, leaving only the skeleton of the insect remaining. These plants grow on the very , low, flat, poor and sandy lands. They ap pear in the late winter and early spring months. Punta Gorda (Fla.) Herald. .The Human Temperature. Put to the test of the thermometer, It appears that the normal tempera ture of the body is almost invariable, regardless of latitude or season. Put ting the bulb of the thermometer un der the tongue of an Eskimo at the frozen north or of a man under the blazing sun of the tropics, we find that In each case, the body being in a state of health, the temperature is about the same, the difference not amounting to a degree. We may aay absolutely that the average normal temperature of a human being is about 98.5 degrees F just as we may say that at sea level water bolls at 212 degrees F. New York American.

La ; Estallita, the hcadliner at the New Phillips this week, drew a popu larity card from one of the largest af ternoon audiences of the season, and has won many friends among those theater goers who delight in delicate portrayals of motion. With her pleas ing personality and her evident com mand of her art. the audience accept ed her immediately and she responded with many encores. Harry Mack held up his reputation as a promoter of laughing stock and his clever work in imitations and" im personations Was received with effu sion. The three Kobers in their intricate gymnastic stunts, added to the general success of the performance lending va riety and balance to the bill. Vaude ville in Richmond seems to have taken over a New Year's resolution to be of a better and a little higher class. The motion pictures, and especially the illustrated song are noteworthy this week, in that line of, amusement. "East Lynne." January 7 the attraction at the Gen nett theater is an adequately staged presentation of the most popular of all dramas, "East Ly nue" by Joseph King's New York company. The en- i gagement is for one night only and the special prices will be 50, 35, 23 and 13. "East '; Lynne," without exception the greatest emotional drama ever written will shortly receive one of the most meritorious presentations ever accord ed It in Richmond by Joseph King's 'company. "Brown of Harvard." "Brown of Harvard, which the Shu- i berts offer at the' Gannett theater J January 8, enjoys the distinction of be ing the most successful matinee play in late years. During the New York run this was attested by the presence of hundreds of, pretty sisters and sweethearts of the college men at each of the five matinees played during the week. A girl's play is always a suc cessful play and there is no use in de nying that girls are . fond of college One of the contestants in the woman's automobile endurance run from New York to Philadelphia is Mrs. Alice H. Ramsey of Hackensack, N. J., -who will drive her 14 H. P. runabout in the contest. Mrs. Ramsey is one of the cleverest woman drivers in the state of New Jersey. She was a con testant last fall in the run to Montauk Lighthouse and return, and with Mrs. Cuneo, divided the honor of making a clear score. flags, college pins, college caps, col lege boys, college plays, college every thing and college anything. There fore, just as for years the Shuberts, have made a specialty of producing female beauty shows, they are now of fering masculine beauty as an attrac tion, on the principal that if one mat inee idol can pull a performance through a successful New York run,' twenty athletic collegians ought to make a play run on forever. "A King's Rival." John Griffith supported by Miss Edyth Totten and a company said to be the strongest he has ever had comes to the Gennett theater next Saturday evening and matinee, when he will be seen for the first time in this city in a comedy role. Mr. Griffith will, pre sent the romantic play, "A King's Rival," in which he is credited with the greatest success of his career in the stellar role of Don Caesar. A com plete scenic, production of the piece is promised and the stage pictures are said to be quite picturesque, the pe riod of the play being in the latter part of the seventeenth centnry, dur ing the reign of Charles the Second, of Spain. THE WORD "WINTER. 8a id to Have Originally Indicated , Wetness, Not Coldness. There is a prevailing impression that there is something in the word "win ter" that signifies cold, and the sea son is usually associated with the idea of low temperature, but where the word originated there was little of winter as we understand it, while there was a great deal of moisture, at the time the earth was nearest to the sun, so that it is not the temperature but the atmospheric condition that has given us the word. The word "winter," as we use it, is found with but slight modifications in all the branches of the Aryan lan guages, for the idea of wetness asso ciated with the season was given to it before the Aryan family was divided. If we go to the root of the word we find "wad," with the signification of to well, to wash out, to moisten or make wet. Our Aryan ancestors used that root to apply to all conditions of moisture, and many words besides winter have grown out of it, wet and water being among them. This root "wad" is in the Sanskrit as "udan," water. Anglo-Saxon has "wae ter," and In Latin we have "unda," wave, from which we get our "inun date." Our Danish and Swedish cousins changed the "w Into a, "v" and have "vlnter." In Icelandic it is "Tetlr," and the old high German has "win tar," and It is "winter" In German. These four words are all from the Teutonic base "wata," which means wet. So it has been moisture that has been indicated from the birth of the root on which all of the different words in a dozen languages have grown. New York Herald.

AIM TAUHTS LED TO TRIPLE MURDER Baseball Player Kills Sweet heart and Rival Then Committed Suicide. WAS BARRED FROM SOCIETY SAID BOONVILLE GIRL AND HER LOVER, WILD WITH RAGE, COMMITTED HIS TERRIBLE CRIME. Boonville, Ind., Jan. 4. Further de tails obtained of the tragedy at Chand-i ler near here Saturday night in which i Miss Ida Williamson was killed and ! Edward Strickland committed suicide, show that Ellman J. Timmons. who had aroused the latter's jealousy and 5 was shot by .him, is also in a serious condition and may die of his wounds. Strickland was years old and pitched last season for the Zanesville, ; O., team in the Central league. He had j been signed for next summer by the Evatisville, Ind., manager. He made his home in Chandler with his step mother who is now the wife of Ed Batts. For a year or more Strickland has been attentive to Miss Williamson who was accounted the prettiest girl in Chandler, and was also popular in Greenville. When she Informed him that she was invited to the Harris party and taunted him upon not having received an invitation he became furiously an gry. "Professional baseball players are not permitted in polite society, you know," jeered Miss Williamson. "I am going with Ellman Timmons. He is a perfectly respectable young man." "If you go to that party with Tim mons," said Strickland, growing white from rage, "I will come out there. Invi tation or no invitation, and kill you both." The girl only laughed. She hadn't the remotest idea that Strickland real ly meant to carry out his threat, and she and Timmons joked about it on their way to the Harris farm. It was about 9:30 o'clock and the party was at its height when the front door opened and Strickland appeared in the parlor. The baseball pitcher glared first at Timmons and then at Miss William son. "Ida," he said, after a moment's pause, "you know what I said I would do. I'm here to do it." Then quick as as a flash he drew his right hand from his pocket. Bang! Bang! Miss Williamson and Timmons pitched forward from their chairs and fell at the feet of their partners in the games they were playing. Strickland waited a few seconds to assure himself that he had not missed his marks, and then he put the barrel of the revolver to his mouth and pulled the trigger a third time. A muffled report and he dropped dead near the body of his sweetheart. Hundreds of people on foot and in buggies for 10 miles around Chandler, the scene of Saturday night's tragedy tracked muddy roads to the homes of Miss Williamson and Strickland to of fer sympathy. Chandler was dreary all day today. No church services were held as the Rev. Mr. Timmons was at the bedside of his son at Evansville Sanitarium. The burial of Miss Williamson oc curred this morning at 9 o'clock. Strickland will be buried this after noon. Strickland's mother is prostrated with grief. She says she had a clear vision of the tragedy Friday nfght In her dreams. Strickland and Miss Williamson were to have been married Christmas. The rarest seashell is the "coae of the Holy Mary." Only two specimens are known, one of which is In the Brit ish museum. SCHEDULES Chicago. Ciccinoati & LosisvIDe Railroad Company Phone 2062 In Effect November 15. 1908.
