Extensive improvements are plann ed by Gaar, Scott & Co. shortly. The board of works yesterday received the company's petition to close North F street from Eighth to Washington av enue, so that a large building can be constructed on that territory, compris ing North F street and the east side of Washington avenue.

The board betaken the pe tition under advisement. i 1 A Canadian law provides certain Qualifications In respect to the manu facture of boilers, and the local con cern Is now required to have the boil ers made at Detroit, the local plant not being equipped to make them.

All WERE PRIZE FOWLS Blood hounds arrived from Dayton I until she was equipped with ber little box of patches cut in her favorite de sign. If one happened to come off in company she hurriedly replaced it with a fresb one from the box. At lencth mitculiie in England went so far that party spirit was symbo lized by the position of the patches. A letter iu the paper on June 2. 1711, tells of a visit to the Hay market and this afternoon and were immediately the discovery by the writer of three -put on the trail of the thief or thieves classes of women in the boxes all dlf- who made a successful raid nn the ferently patched. Upon inquiry he chicken coop of A. W.

The chickens are Rhode Is- i land Reds and of fine stock having been batched about four weeks ago. There were about four hundred other full grown chickens in the nlace. but they were not disturbed, however, the thieves apparenUy having their eyes r open only for the prize winning var iety. A raid was made on the coop last week also and that time 75 small chicks were stolen. - if The police were notified of the theft this morning and the suggestion was made that the blood hounds be sent for.; Mr. Frame telephoned to B. F. Converse of Dayton, who owns the dogs, and was told that the animals would arrive this afternoon. The place has not been disturbed it is said, and it vwill be possible for the dogs to 'obtain an excellent scent. It is thought that the, bloodhounds will readily take up the trail and eventually locate the thieves.

When it is absolutely necessary for him to work he generally hits upon some method which will save him a lot of exertion. If he wishes to cultivate a piece of ground be sets light to the brushwood as a cheap, easy and effica cious method of preparing the soil. For two or three years be cultivates that piece' of land. -and then he sets light to another spot, allowing the jun gle to grow in the old place, which will be ready for reburning when the other ground wants a rest. Rice growers dispense with plows, turning loose instead a uutnber of buffaloes, which cut up the saturated soil with their hoofs. Wheu a Burman has earned a little money he immediately proceeds to spend it all. for the Bur mese have no ambition to be rich and never board; consequently there are no large landowners, and. there being no aristocracy, the people are as near being on an equality as possible. Here's a Decsca' for A Peter. A vegetarian writer narrated in a recent address a "poser" that bis little son had put to him. "My little boy," said the speaker, "often turns away from his lentils and expresses a longing for chops and roast beef. "The other day at table I explained to him that we become what we eat that by eating vegetables we become mild and placid, but by eating meat we become savage and gross.' 'Well, papa. said the lad. If It's true that we become what we eat. why don't cannibals become missionaries?" Hartford. Conn.. May 10.- Letters from President Taft and other dignl Ctrt produced great enthusiasm at last night's session of the New lung land Arbitration and Peace Congress Reference was made to the death of King Edward following the reading of the letter sent by Ambassador Bryce The letter from President Taft said in part: "I have on more than one occasion expressed myself as being in favor of international peace and in favor of ar bitration to secure it, and I also dwelt on the subject in my Inaugural ad dress. That does not mean, however, that I am in favor of a country giving up that which we now use for the purpose of securing peace, to wit; our army and our navy, because I believe that the expense or armament is work ing toward peace. Permanent Peace. 1 earnestly hope that your meeting will be productive of much good in the promotion of permanent peace and I wish you every success in your efforts in this direction. Secretary Knox stated that he was in sympathy with the "Movement of the arbitration of controversies be tween nations as a means of calming irritation i and of preserving peace." Referring to the proposed Hague Tri bunal, be said : "The court should wait for the litigant, not the litigant for the court," , - Ambassador James Bryce, who was unable to attend, sent a letter which was read, as follows: "I rejoice to know that a demon stration of opinion in favor of peace and arbitration bo Urge and so earn est as that which this conference is expected to give will proceed from the people of New England.' "The importance of the jjestion it self cannot be exaggerated, and you are right in thinking that it ought to be constantly kept before public at tention. - Nations Profess Desire. "All the ereat nations profess to desire peace, yet all maintain enor mous naval - and. military' armaments which impose an almost intolerable burden upon the peoples. Of course, each nation declares that these arma ments are only for its own protection, intended, in fact, to secure peace, and that it has no aggressive designs against others. Yet each nation does not seem to credit the others with the same pacific intentions it professes for Itself, and so an atmosphere of general suspicion reigns. Allegations of intended ' attacks by some one nation upon another, howev er recklessly tliey are made, improb able in themselves, are constantly scattered forth and receive an amount of credit surprising to those who know the real facts of the case. You doubt less recall an instance of this kind which occurred not long ago affecting your own country. "Each such story, each such alarm, has the effect of increasing the de mand for a further increase in naval and military preparations. The alarm visually passes away after a few months, but the result remains in the increased armaments and in the stim ulus given to the latent but ever-pres-c"nt warlike sentiment." .. Letter From Bryan, William Jennings Bryan weighed In with a letter of commendation stating he was in favor of arbitration, asking indorsement of a proposition he intro duced at the London conference four years ago. President Samuel Gompers in his letter statedr ' "Organized labor stands for peace, Industrial as well as international. carping critics' to the contrary not withstanding. We want international peace. All mankind yearns for it; humanity demands it. ' "Iabor will strive to persuade the governments of the world to establish universal peace, but lest these hopes be unrealized and efforts prove futile, it 'must never be forgotten that in the last analysis the masses of the people of every country , have it in their hands to exert their own giant ..will and' power against international war and that if otherwise thwarted they will not hesitate to exert IL" Jackson H. Ralston, of Washington, D. C, spoke on "Sonfe Supposed causes for War," and Rev. P. A. Gif- rord, or Brookline, Mass., spoke on Three-Plank Peace Platform." These planks he gave as "Brotherhood," "No Gain from War .When it is Forced Upon Us" and "The Tithes."
