Under this caption, the Sentinel .charges that .there is method in Mr. Fairbanks' silence on the vice presidential boom. The Sen tinel says : - ''The cautious and careful Fairbanks has been, of late, very uncom municative on the subject of his 'vice presidential boom.' lie has made no official statement of which we are aw.ire, but, apparently, he has lent ap proval to the movement by his silence. Wherefore? one is compelled to ask. If Senator Fairbanks is as anxious to serve his party, to lend to the ticket a certain 'weight and dignity' in which Roosevelt who, it is presumed, will head it, is woefully lacking, what can fhe hope to gain for his party by this cold, freezing silence?' " "lie has made no official statement, as we are aware," says the wiley Sentinel, when in fact Mr. Fairbanks' statement was nearly two days old when the Democratic organ's editorial was written. The organ of the Indiana. Democrats was either ignorant or cunning when this statement was made. What should a gentleman and a statesman like Mr. Fairbanks do un der the circumstances? What would a Democrat do under like condi tions? lie would no doubt exploit his unique qualifications for the place and begin an active campaign at once. On the other hand, Mr. Fair banks has maintained a dignified silence a silence becoming his exalted office as United States Senator. Senator Fairbanks said in a private letter to a friends in Indianapo lis, a few days ago, regarding the rumors connections his name with the nomination of the vice presidency: "These rumors do not arise out of any thing said or done by me, as I have rigidly ;-adhered to one policy, that is, to say nothing for publication. I have been free to advise my friends, how ever, that I am not a candidate for the nomination as vice president, nor have I any desire whatever for the pIaeeZ, ' What more could a gentleman sav? We believe that if .it, will add strength to Mr. Ifoos'evelt , for Mr. Fairbanks to become his running mate, he will gladly accept the nomination, even at a sacrifice. He can well af ford to follow in the footsteps of Mr. Roosevelt Avhen he reluctantly ac cepted the second. place with Mr, MeKinley. The senior senator is a pa triot and will be governed by what i for the best interests of the Re publican party. A few days ago the press contained an account of a funeral at the Catholic Cathedral, in Fort Wayne, where the officiating minister refused to admit the American flag that draped the coffin of the deceased. It now appears that the report was unfounded and that the flag is allowable in the Catholic churches and wras not barred as stated in some newspapers. The members of the Catholic church are, as patriotic as the members of other churches, and have never hesitated to honor the "Old Flag" and light under its folds when it was necessary. Even if the investigation of the Smoot case does not result in depos ing the Mormon senator, it will be valuable for the light it throws on polygamous living in the state of Utah. The head of a church with five Avives and forty-two children, and their mode of living, do not furnish an inspiring lesson for American youth. One of the Indianapolis high schools will run an excursion to New Orleans during the spring vacation. This school believes there is much to learn outside of books. Such a trip to the "Sunny South," will give rest and recreation as well as much information from actual observation. We do not hear very much from the "orator of the Platte" just now. Of course, it is almost spring tired feeling." However, it is not will break the silence in due time. Senator Smoot ought to lose his taken vows more binding than the oath constitution of the United States, is not States senator. Indiana is said to have the most beautiful building at the world's fair. Good for Indiana ! There are no people in the United States who will appreciate such a building more than will the Iloosiers.

CUNIONggLABEL j THE FROM ' OF TREES SUBJECT ON WHICH MOST PEOPLE KNOW BUT LITTLE. HORTICULTURAL SOClT'Y Discusses the Subject at Its Last Meeting Article on the Subject. At the last meeting of the Wayne County Agricultural and Horticul tural society the question of pruning trees was discussed by several per sons present, and there was consider able difference of opinion on the sub ject' Caleb King said he made it a point to keep his orchard well pruned and thought it was the proper thing to do until he visited the orchard of Elim Osborn, near Economy. He ob served that Mr. Osborn paid little at tention to pruning, and, as a conse quence, his orchard was far superior in results to Mr. King's. Now he was practically "up a tree" and did not know which rdan was the best to follow. The following article from the last number of Arboriculture, on the sub ject of pruning is timely and very in structive: "While the tress are pushing up, most rapidly, the side branches are I most quickly overshaded, and the pro cess of natural pruning goes on with the greatest vigor. Natural pruning is the reason why old trees in a dense forest have only a small crown high in the air, and why their tall trunks are clear of branches to such a height from the ground. The trunks of trees grown in the open, where even the lower limbs have abundance of light are branched either quite to the ground or to within a short distance of it. But in the forest not only are the lower side branches continually dying for want of light, but the tree rids itself of them after they . are dead and so frees its trunk from them entirely. When a branch dies, the annual layer of new wood is no longer deposited upon it. Consequently the dead branch, where it is inserted in the tree, makes a little hole in the first coat of living tissue formed over the live wood after its death. The edges of this hole make a sort of col lar about the base of the dead branch, and as a new layer is added each year the.y press it more and more tightly. So strong does this compression of the living wood become that at last what remains of the dead tissue has so lit tle strength that the branch is broken off by a storm or even falls of its own weight. Then in a short time, if all goes well, the hole closes, and after awhile little or no exterior trace of it remains. Knots such as those which are found in boards, are the marks left in the trunk by branches which have disappeared. GifTord Pinchot. "Mr. Pinchot, in the above beauti ful description, explains the process of pruning followed by nature. Al though he neglects to inform the pub lic, whom he wishes to instruct, how long a time must elapse before this BOTTLED SUNSHINE Scott's Emulsion brings sunshine to the entire system of the consumptive.

This is why Scott's Emulsion of pure cod liver; oil is literally bottled sunshine, full of rich nourishment and new life for the consumptive. We'll send you a sample fres npon request. ' SCOTT & DOWN E, 409 Pearl Street, New York. TIE Tells How He Escaped the Terrors of Many Winters by Using Pe-ru-na. Age'is H4 Years HR. ISAAC BROCK, BORN IN BUNCOMBE CO., N. C, MARCH 1, 1788. His age is 114 years, vouched for by authentic record. He says : 'J attribute my extreme old age to the use of Pe-ru-na. " Born before the United States was formed. Saw 22 Presidents elected. Pe-ru-na has protected him from ail sudden changes. Veteran of four wars. Shod a horse when 99 years old. Always conquered the grip with Pe-ru-na. Witness in a land suit at tire age of 110 years. Believes Pe-ru-na the greatest remedy of the age for catarrhal diseases. ISAAC BROCK, a citizen of McLen nan county, Texas, has lived for 114 years. For many years he resided at Bosque Falls, eighteen miles west of Waco, but now lives with his son-in-law at Valley Mills, Texas. operation can be completed, or what an expensive operation this becomes through nature's methods. " "When owners of timber land leave entirely to nature the work of pruning, they must of necessity, await Dame Nature 's pleasure, as to when she will perform the operation. Meantime interest and taxes accumu late and multiply, old age advances more rapidly than the trees can in crease in size., and the investment be comes of great duration, for trees can not make rapid progress while in the crowded condition in which they exist as nature usually scatters her seed. "The procedure is beautiful, but it does not increase the bank account of the. waiting investor. "There is a happy medium for the best growrth of forest trees, between the densely crowded young forest, the roots struggling for years for the mastery, and the single tree growing in an open field with branches grow ing to the ground. "It is. this medium in distance be tween trees of the forest, which must solve the question of profit in timber lands. A moderate expense incurred in pi-operly thinning a young forest and in pruning away the lower sic!; branches, so as to make clear lumbor, is money well expended, for it enables the remaining trees to obtain the necessary moisture and food which will keep them growing as rapidlv as their nature will perrnt. " While without this thinning by the hand of man, the trees are .-.up. pressed ; in growi-n ;whih: sears, nay , centuries, must elapse before by 'T! survival of the fittest,' the weaker can be destroyed so as to enable the . slronger to begin growth. "-Besides, there are certain trees which do not shed their branches after they have been killed by shade. "In these, the new wood growth, each year encloses the dead branch, and in time, disease germs enter the tree through this channel of a decay ing member, being conveyed by water and the atmosphere, when the tree becomes a hollow, w-orthless trunk. And further, many species of trees form an upright stem without over crowding. "The old theory of crowding young forests will never succeed under American impatience for results. mm A short time ago, by request, Uncle Isaac came to Waco and sat for his pic ture. In hi3 hand he held a stick cut from the grave of General Andrew Jackson, which has been carried by him ever since. Mr. Brock is a dignified old gentleman, showing few signs of de crepitude. His family Bible is still pre served, and4t shows that the date of his birth was written 114 j-ears ago. Surely a few words from this remarka ble old gentleman, who has had 114 years of experience to draw fromswould be interesting as well as profitable. A lengthy biographical sketch is given of this remarkable old man in the Waco Times-Herald, December 4, 1898. A still more pretentious biography of this, the oldest living man, illustrated with a double column portrait, was given the readers of the Dallas Alorning Xews, dated December 11, 1898, and also the Chicago-Tildes Herald of same date.

Instead of going to books for information, they are required to interview people who are connected with these topics and to consult local records at the city building and cour house. This makes the history a more living subject. The 8 B history classes are now engaged in a study of the Stamp Act. This is taken up as a type of the causes leading to the He volution.

The vote was unanimously in favor of it. The other pupils were then asked if they would favor and support such action and a large majority readily pledged themselves to do so. Mr. Heironimus also made some suggestions as to pos sible lines of activity for the Audu bon Society. His suggestions are to be considered by the executive com mittee of the society.

I think I have done so. "One of the things I have found out to my entire satisfaction is the proper thing for ailments that are due directly to the effects of the climate. For 114 years I have withstood the changeable climate of the United States. "I have always been a Very healthy man, but of 'course subject to the little affections which are due to sudden changes in the climate and temperature. During my long life I have known a great many remedies for coughs, colds and diarrhoea. 'Ms for Dr. Hartmans remedy Peruna, I have found it to be the best, if not the only, reliable rem edy for these affections. It has been my standby for many years, and I attribute my good health and extreme old age to this rem edy. "It exactly meets aU my require ments. It protects me from the evil effects of sudden changes; it keeps mo in good appetite; it gives me strength; it keeps my blood in good circulation.

Proper Treatment of Pneumonia. Pneumonia is too dangerous a dis- 'case for anyone to attempt to doctor I himself, although he mav have the I .... proper remedies at hand. A physician should always be called. It should be borne in mind, however, that pneumo nia always results from a cold or from an attack of the grip, and by the proper treatment of these diseas es a threatened attack of pneumonia may be warded off. There is no ques tion whatever about this, as during the thirty years and more that Cham berlain's Cough Kemedy has been used, we have yet to learn of a single case of a.cold or attack of the grip having resulted in pneumonia when this remedy was used. It is also used by physicians in the treatment of pneumonia with 'the 'best results.' Dr. W. J. Smith, of Sanders, Ala., who is also a druggist, says of it: "I have been, selling namoeriain s Lougu Remedy and prescribing it in my - n on- fif flift rn5f si'V YMrs. T use ...
