THTE RICHMOND PALLADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM, SUNDAY. OCTOBER 3, 1909.

AT RICHMOND CHAUTAUQUA WELODME L - - AIM In the October number of "Word and Works" a magsaine of which Rev. Irl.lt. Hicks is editor, he has an ac count of the local Chautauqua. He closed his chautauqua engagements here and was very much pleased with his reception as his article which is as follows, shows: "At Richmond, Indiana, on the af ternoon of Thursday, August 26th, this editor closed his chautauqua itinerary of, fifty-eight days, having left home on the morning of July 1st. and re turned on the morning of August 27th. At the close of our lecture in the af ternoon at Richmond. Indiana, the managers of that great chautauqua urged us to speak again at the even ing hour, requesting that we give the audience some specific predictions covering the immediate future. In compliance with this request, before assembled thousands, we read from our closing forecasts for August in our 1909 Almanac, our warning of West India storms in the regions of the Gulf of Mexico, and our forecast of seismic shakes to be central on August 30th. As we had been practi cally forced to give the audience of three to four thousand people these predictions, we claimed the right, and did challenge them to watch reports and decide for themselves whether or not our forecasts were fulfilled. Than this audience of thousands at Rich mond, a kindlier, more intelligent and attentive assembly is rarely to be found on this planet, and it no doubt goes without saying that the awful torms in the south, in which thous ands of human beings perished, and Dver thirty millions in property were destroyed, also the earthquakes in Panama on the 30tii, and in Rome and various other places over the globe on the 31st, were duly noted by all who were present and listened to our fore casts and our insistent demand that they be watched. The fulfillments same precisely on the dates named, and all within five days of the hour when we stood before that rapt, tre mendous assembly. See the forecasts nd warnings whicn we read and en larged upon on page 56 of our 1909 ilmanac, which had been printed and :Irculated over most parts of the sarth more than a year before . that jvening at Richmond. "Only another soincidence," eh? Hicks. WOMEN ABE ACTIVE Society Queens Will Partici pate in New York May oralty Fight. CAMPAIGN IS OUTLINED (American News Service) New York, Sept. 2S. The women of the Four Hundred in this city will be an active .factor in the forthcoming mayoralty campaign. The plans of the Suffragettes, of course, are even broader than that, and contemplate an aggressive campaign ' for women suffrage In many states; but In tha mayoralty campaign In this city, for the first time In this country, women of fashion and of the highest social standing will engage in active cam paign work for or against various can didates. The plans of the women have been outlines for the rest by Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont, president of the National Suffrage association, which has just opened elaborate headquarters at No. 605 Fifth avenue. She said: We ex pect to get into touch with the candi dates who are to run for office this fall. Those who are in favor of wo man suffrage, of course, will receive our support. The other candidates also will receive our attention. There are many questions of Interest to wo men Involved in the opening cam paign, such as the question of teach ers' salaries, and we expect to be able to put these questions to the front. Women never can get their Just rights without the ballot "I shall be at my office every morn ing and afternoon to keep appoint ments with various officials and poli ticians, as well as with visiting officers of the Suffrage League, and the asso ciation expects to make its influence felt in the campaign." Mrs. Clarence E. Mackay, head of the Equal Franchise society, with of fices in the Metropolitan Life tower, is another of New York's wealthy anl fashionable woman who is devoting most of her time and energy to further ing the propaganda for votes for wo men. She is a friend of Mrs. Bel mont, and frequently calls on the lat ter to consult her as to ways and means of furthering the cause. Such women as these have made the canse of woman suffrage fashionable, and are drawing to it the support of thousands of women who previously had been deterred from taking part in the movement through fear that they would be scorned as "suffragettes." ... nnnjw. The family lived in the suburbs of the city. and. much to the joy of Lnlu. a little pig was given a home in the stable cellar. A few days later the little oue was calling at a neighbor's, where she showed great interest in the bird. The lad; said.

All Government Forests of Prussia Are Welt Managed "Washington, Oct., 2. Prussia has national forests, covering nearly 7, 000,000 acres, which are made up much as if the pineries of the South ern states of this country and the forests of some of the Middle Atlantic and Central states were combined. When forestry was begun by Prussia, a great part of the timberland had been injured by mismanagement, much as American forests have been, and the Prussian foresters had to solve the problem of improving the run-down forests out of the returns from those which were still in good condition. They solved it with strik ing success. Immense improvement has already taken place and is stead ily going on. The method of management adopt ed calls for a sustained yield that is, no more wood is cut than the forest produces. Under this management the growth of the forest, and consequent ly the amount cut, has risen sharply. In 1830 the yield was twenty cubic feet per acre; in 1365, twenty-four cu bic feet; in 1S90. lifty-two cubic feet, and 1904, sixty-five cubic feet In oth er words, Prussian forest management has multiplied the rate of production threefold in seventy-five years. And the quality of tho product has Im proved with the quantity. Between 1S30 and 1904 the percentage of saw timber rose from nineteen peroeat to fifty-four percent. It is a striking fact In this connec tion that in the United States at the present time the people use about three times as much timber as the forests grow. If we were everywhere practicing forestry with a resulting improvement equal to that made In Prussia, the forests of this country would be growing as much as we use. The financial returns in Prussia make an even belter showing. Net returns per acre in 1S50 were twenty eight cents. In 1865 they were seventy-two cents; in 1900, $1.5S and in 1901, $2.50. They are now nearly ten times what they were sixty years ago and they are increasing more rapidly than ever. These results have been obtained in Prussia along with almost ideal tech nical success. When what is want ed is a sustained yield from the for est year by year in the long run, it is clearly necessary to have always a certain number of trees ready to be cut; there must be a proper propor tion of trees of all ages. This per centage has been (secured and main tained with almost mathematical accuracy. The 1'rimioBi of Europe. A traveler who has toured Europe with his wife at $4 a day for the two declares that the pensions are the base of his cheap travel. In every conti nental city visited they easily found delightful pensions at $1.20 a day each. The pensions have not the style and display of the hotels, but they have all the comfort and the servants fees are fewer and smaller. Breakfast Includes bread and coffee, nothing more. Luncheon and dinner are course meals, very much alike. Some one in the bouse always speaks English. "Do you believe in tbe Darwin iai theory y astfd 11 r. Whibbles.
