To make Minnesota famous as "the state with the tree-lined highways" is the object which the Forestry depart ment of the state has set out to accom plish. The department will plant 30,000 trees along the 'highways this year, and each year hereafter will add to the num ber. What Minnesota is doing is also being done in Pennsylvania and other states.

NO BREAK IN HARD COAL DEADLOCK Fifth Conference Between Miners and Operators Today NO AGREEMENT ON FUTURE WAGES Operators Willing Old Scale Shall Pre vail Until April, But Want Adjust ment After That Date Miners Refuse Advisory Board. ' PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 22. The anthracite peace-seeking committee en tered "another day today with .no signs of a break in the deadlock between repre sentatives of the mine workers and those of the operators. The fifth session of the conference was scheduled to begin at 3 p. m. Both sides were said to have agreed to restoration of the old wage rates until next April 1, but so far it has ap parently been impossible to agree upon a program for fixing wages after that date. Arbitration was the principal theme discussed at yesterday's session. The proposal-was "advisory arbitra tion." that is to say, an award of all questions that may be in dispute by a board whose findings would be commend atory, but not mandatory, and, there fore, Hot binding on either party. The basis on which the United States railroad board functions, the real differ ence between the board which the opera tors proposed and the railroad board being that the former would be selected by the parties to the dispute." while the ! latter is an official named by the presi j dent with members selected at large to represent uie generar public? The objection of the miners to the plan is, that since VM'2, when the late John I .Mitehen broke the power of the opera tors in the hard coal Country, arbitration I has not worked as they would have liked. i. is ttieir contention that in every ar bitration they had to be content with less in working conditions ami writes , than they might have had in straight ne gotiations, DacKeti by -ttie iower of their organization. : Such a board as was suggested would, they feel, be no more likely to deal differ ently than other boards have, though it might in all probability win public sup- jii tor 11s nutting. , v., . . This, it is contended, is in itself com-. illusion mai mignr well tie more forceful than any agreement to abide by the deci sions of a board with mandatory powers. Orders Coal Mines Opened.

ISLE OF PINES PROGRESSES. Becoming a Producer of Best Grape fruit, Says Fruit Grower. The Isle of Pines, a tiny body of land ninety miles south of Cuba, is rapidly becoming a producer of the world's best grapefruit, according to W. II. Brown, who 1 has been engaged in the fruit; busi ness there for seventeen years. He says that Americans own !S per cent of the island and most of them have turned their attention to the cultivation of grapefruit. "Our climate and soil seem to pro duce a much sweeter variety of grape fruit than is raised in Florida and in California." said Mr. Brown, who is at the Hotel McAlpin. "At the same time we do not' compete with the grapefruit business in those states. Our lirst pick ing season is from Aug. 15 to Oct. 15, which is . before the- Florida crop is ready for the 'market.- The second pick ing, which is the thoroughly ripened crcp. begins about the first of the year and continues through April. "The Isle of Pines is sharing with Cuba ' the hitter's increasing popularity as a winter resort. A number of new, modern hotels have been opened and are doing good business the year round. "With us crocodiles are as common as cats in the Bronx, although I recall no instance of a person being attacked by one. -The island is only thirty-seven j miles long by thirty-five wide, but it) would be a difficult undertaking to attempt - to exterminate the crocodiles. They cling to their own habitat, which are the coastline marshes and the in land swamps and rivers. - The crocodiles cause the loss of much live stocls during a year. They are particularly fond of; pigs, and pigs are particularly fond of the cool, refreshing mud baths of the marshlands. x As a consequence the crocodiles are well fed." Opportunity Waits. (Barre Times.) In trying to impress peor-Ic with the opportunities for business success right here in Vermont, the Newport Express 1 tells about two young men in Lowell, Vt.. j who got $500 off their strawberry patch, of three fourths an acre this year, about ! a young man who started a laundry" in' Barton a year ago and has recently been compelled to enlarge his facilities and en- j gage more help, about a Newport man who learned that ladders were not manu factured nearer than - Boston1 and who now is meeting with , a great public de mand for the ladders of his manufacture. The contemporary points out that these are only scattered cases in its vicinitv. It is the same everywhere about the state; there are opportunities and some discerning men are picking them up con stantly. It isn't necessary to go out of the state of Vermont to find a tine oppor tunity to advance in the , business and commercial world. The trouble is to have the discernment to see the oppor tunity and then the courage and per sistence to take advantage of the oppor tunity.
