PAY $25,000,000 FOR CANAL. Signing of Treaty Will End Ten Years of Negotiation. Washington, April 8.?Undisguised gratification was felt by administration officials here to-day at the prospect of finally healing the breach between the United States and Codombia through the treaty signed ai Bogota yesterday. If this convention is ratified by the two countries, as officials are confident it will be, it will close amicably a bitter controversy, brought on by the secession ol Panama in 1903 and the granting to the United States the Canal Zone and which the Washington government has felt handicapped it in its relations with all Latin-America. Substantial details of the treaty became known here to-day. V The principal article provides foi the payment to Colombia of $25,000,' 000 six months after ratifications have been exchanged between the two countries, as indemnity for the losses she has sustained. This is granted in a lump sum and the treaty does not attempt to specify how much of this amount is in reparation foi the loss of Panama or how much foi the loss of the Panama Railway rights. Shipping Rights. Colombia is granted the right t< ship coal, salt and petroleum from her Atlantic to her Pacific ports either through the canal or across the Panama Railway, without any charge other than the cost of freight, nc duty being assessed. These articles . are not produced along the Pacific side of the country and mountains prevent easy communication overland through Colombia. A third article fixes the boundary 1 " 1 1 o *"? A DonOm< line ueiweeu twuuiuia auu x auauu and restores to the latter a strip ol territory which had been claimed b> Panama. This line is the same as that which was provided in the Cortes Arosema treaty between Colombia and Panama, one of the tri parte treaties never ratified by Colombia, except that it fixes definitely the point on the Pacific coast where the boundary terminates, which is tc be midway between Points Cocalita and Ardita. The former treaty left this point to be settled by a tribunal of arbitration to be appointed. A treaty, however, between Colombia and Panama will be necessary before this boundary settlement is final. The United States agrees to use its good offices with Panama in the matter". Another article expresses the hope that friendly relations between the United States and Colombia may confirms fmm thi.c timp forward. Colombia's Demands. Colombia has insisted that the United States either pay a lump sun: for the Canal Zone it acquired whei the Republic of Panama was set ui over night with guarantees of in tegrity from Washington: or that the whole question be submitted to The Hague for abitration. The last negotiations took place ai the close of President Taft's admin istration when Minister Dubois, un der instructions of Secretary Knox Offered a settlement 011 this basis: Ratification by Colombia of the so called tri-partite treaty of 1909, b: which Panama agreed to apportior with Colombia the annual paymen of $250,000 which she receives fron the United States as rent for th< Canal Zone for a sufficient period t( liquidate any claim of Colombia's ui to $10,000,000.

The Ancients Thought it Was a Drop of Dew From Heaven. No record exists or even tradition as to the discovery of the first pearl. . The mystery of its origin has doubtless contributed in no small degree . to render it the prime favorite that it , has ever been in the eyes of the ori. entals. : From time immemorial the na. tions of antiquity have used the pearl to decorate their persons and adorn their temples and we find many curi. ous beliefs existing as to its origin, f The one most prevalent in Pliney's - time was that pearls were formed ( from the dews of heaven, falling in. to the open shells at breeding time. . and it was in allusion to this pretty conceit that a noble Venetian lady , named Corraro, had a gold medal struck (bearing the date 1620) on . the reverse side of which is an open shell receiving the drops of dew from . heaven which form into pearls as ? they fall. The motto was nure m? vino" (by the divine dew). . In these more practical but less , poetic days the generally accepted t theory is that some foreign sub. stance, possibly even a grain of sand, . having by accident entered the shell r of the oyster, a certain amount of ? irritation is induced which causes the exudation of a pearly secretion j (known as nacre), and this effectual( Iv covers up the intruder, and also that with the growth of the oyster , the pearl increases in size. , The pearl, unlike all other gems, ) requires no assistance from man to enhance its value, or from art to add one iota to its perfect loveliness.?

"Only two ; States have given a majority against . the repeal. A number of them, so far as the votes have been received have declared unanimously in favor of the repeal, notably Texas and Pennsylvania. In Illinois the vote to date is 24 to 2 for repeal." BERRY, THE HANGMAN. How He Got His Grewsome Office and Why He Resigned it. Berry, the famous English hangman had an extraordinary career. He worked as a carpenter, engineer and printer before joining the police force. He knew his predecessors. Marwood and Calcroft, and secured the post of hangman out of 1,400 ap plicants. It is saia mat oerry was chosen as hangman by the sheriffs of London through an answer he gave to a question about hanging a man he knew to be innocent. "Would you hang that gentleman over there?" he was asked. After looking at the councilor, a venerable, gray bearded figure, Berry is alleged to have replied: "I would hang the lot of you. The crime would not be i mine, but the law's." And yet Berry finally gave up his office as hangman because the execui tion by him of two innocent persons got on his nerves. The first case was that of a farm , lad. aged about eighteen, accused of shooting a policeman. The boy pro! tested his innocence to Berry up to i the last moment, but was duly e\. ecuted. Some time after this Berry . hanged the Xetherby Hall murderi ers, one of whom just before he died told Berry that it was he who had shot the policeman for which crime , the boy had been executed, i The second case was; that of Mary ! Leffley of Lincolnshire, who was ac cused of poisioning her husband with arsenic. She, too, protested her innocence, but was hanged. Some years later a farmer dying of cancer confessed the crime. He said he had had a quarrel with John Leffley, and when both John and Mary were out he had entered their cottage and ? f)ut arsenic in a milk pudding which had been prepared for John Leffley's dinner. It was on account of these two grave miscarriages of justice that , Berry ultimately turned evangelist. He was persuaded to go to a mission meeting at Bradford and there anj nounced his conversion.?London Tit-Bits. , 5 A Preempted Right. "How many of youM)oys way back ! in the 'SOs knew that I was regarded as one of the homeliest men in Kentucky?" remarked Senator Bradley. "It's a fact," and with a chuckle he proceeded to give an instance of It. "Under the laws of Kentucky the governor has the power of pardon even before grand jury proceedings on trial. During my first term as governor my attorney general was John K. Hendrick. Some people were divided as to .which of us was the homeliest. John always maintained that he was a better looking man than I, and I always disputed his argument. > "One day Hendrick walked into i my office. f " 'I want a pardon, governor,' he t announced. I " 'All right, Hendrick,' I replied; "what have you done?' " 'I just shot a man down the L street,' said HendricK, caimiy. " 'What for?' I demanded. " 'He said I looked like you,' answered Hendrick, 'and I could not stand for that.' * " 'You shall have the pardon im' mediately,' I replied. 'If you hadn't shot the cuss, I would have done so on sight.' "?National Monthly. 1 Staining wood with beautified r colors while the tree is still standing ' is undergoing experiment.
