THE REFERENDUM. How It Works In Svv Itri'rlnnd, Where If Ilns llei-n In Use Forty Venrs. (F. A. Ogg tn Boston Transciipt.) When the referendum Is mentioned eine thinks of Switzerland. The Swiss refer endum, however, is coming to be of in terest not so much as a constitutional curiosity, tint rather as a basis of com parison with tho lefeiendum ns it h-is taken shape In other countries. Since Mr. Balfour's Injection of the principle! Into current politic discussion in Great Hrlt nln, the Eniellsli prints have been filled with expositions nf the Swiss system, nnd in every American State where the Issue is brought up there is the Inevitable appeal to Swiss precedents. The essential of the Swh.s referendum can lie stated In n few words. The Insti tution exists In two forms cantonal and federal, tn f.ll the twentv-twn cantons save one (! rciluiigi the referendum in one form or another, has he-en established bv law. tn about half of them, the sub mission of measures for the direct vote nf the people takes place only If a stip ulated percentage of fie voters nf tho canton reeitn-st it. In the remaining can tons it is obligatory In the case of every measure, important or unimportant, con tested or non-contested. It Is obligatory In all cantons, furthcriuoic, whenever an amendment of the cantonal constitu tion Is under consideration. In the domain of tin federal government the referendum hr s heen employed since 3 S is in respect tn the constitutional am endments, and slnrei 1874 in respect to legislative acts. All laws, rules and regu lations of the confederations are passed by the two chambers, the national as sembly and the Cantonal assembly but all laws and such regulations as are aeneral In their application, and not Itn mediately urgent, are snViniltted to the people for the-tr adoption or rejection under either of two circumstances: First, when such submission Is ri-MH"sted by as man a eight of the cantom, and, sec ond, when It Is called for bv 30,mo cit izens possessed of the franchise. Between the years 1CT and 1009 the Swiss cham bers pnsed Sm laws ami regulations in respect to which the optional refeiendum might have leen applied. The refeiendum was a' a matter of fact, demanded and applied only thirty times, with the re suit of the rejection of eighteen measures and the final adoption of twelve- EVP.RY HEN I-AID NOBl,Y.

The courtroom yesterday resembled the show room of a ladles' fashionable fur nl'hlng establishment About .fl.fiiV) worth of Imported goods was on dlsulav. form erly the property of a Syrian who was Importing it frenn Paris to Pasadena, f'al. The ge)ds were seized at Alburg for nnn-panient of duties and the auction sale rsterday was tho result of Instruc tions from Washington, I. C. Early yesterday morning feminine bii vers befiin flocking to tho scene ot the auction and the room was crowded when the sale began. The crowd was a com plete surprise to Mr. Bailey. The names ot tho gooeli to be dis posed of were printed on large sheets nnd each protective buyer was provided with one. For convenience sake, the arti cles weic sup.irnted into 1G0 lots, and numbered. There was almost every kind of femlnli.c wearing apparel from dresses to jahots. Rich lnces, chiffon veils, satin mantles, tonterpleecs, table rovers, per fumery, cmbroldeiy bags, Infants' near, suitings, etc., weio among the many ar ticles which went under the hammer, al so the three trunks In which tho goods er seized. Some of the bids were np to the ap praisal, Bnmr under, and quite a number were above. Hut thero were certainly many bargains Twelve chiffon scarfs were sold nt from 5t 75 to K a pair, which were appraised at jr, each. Nine bottles of perfumery went foi it 4.25. whose real vnlti was said M be close to Jir. '"What am I hid for this pin cushion. a hand-picked one?" tirpilred Auctioneer Reevif. Some one mldcntly wante-d It for It went at a pood price. The mot spirited bidding occurred dur ing the afternoon when the highest pric ed article" were pl-iced under the ham mer. A beautiful filet lace tablecloth, ippralsed at JIO", brought Just that sum. after two bidders, both of whom were lepiesentatlves of large department store", hntl raised each other dollar for dollar while the ladles present looked on and held their breath I'ho bulk of the most expensive arti cles, went to a Mr. Bavlles. who was said to be a representative of n New York llrm. but there were other bidders who kept the auctioneer busy. I'lie s lie uf a number of handsome hand embroidered dre.ss,.s occupied the time lust evening until a late hour. A des eilptlem of the.se u esses Is quite beond the ability of any ordinary scribe. How ever, it Is safe to say they were the tincst specimens of the genuine imnorlod article ever seen In Burlington. i..- .luiiiuii ramii to an end last even ing about ten o'clock, all of the pejode having heen sold. The room was crowded dining the evening with a throng of cuger pun has- rs and at times the bidding was fast -111(1 furious.

How lllnls (-iimo llnek I'ollovrlng li'sleml of Fortctlliisr the Wcnlher. fli njamln Karr In Cleveland I.eador.) When the. first venturesome robins, bluebirds, nnd song spamnvs are seen and heard In the north mnnv persons are confident that there wl.l ha little mote si.vpre weather. Thov Uncm- that snow and freezing temperature must be expected, but they feel sure that Intense cold and fierce blizzards nr ,onft wlth- It Is because the bird!, have come. A multitude of men and women believe that these little creatures, accustomed to migrate in spring and fall, know In some mysterious way what the weather is going to be. It is not suppo-sed that the birds are conscious of any iletalled forecast of tho temperature, the winds or the precipitation, but It Is thought that they aie able te foreknow In ev hroad, general sene, tho course the remainder of the winter will run. Common as this belief H, the evidence to the contrary Is overwhelming. The birds make loo many mistakes. They too phdnly follow the weather Instead of foretelling It. A LITTLE TOO EAULV. If the middle of the winter, for ex ample, Is extraordinarily open and mild, for a fortnight or so, It Is quite sure to bring some of the songsters up fiom the South. They are so Influenced by lute January or early robrunry conditions thnt they take ohaiices with the nt half of Kcbruary and with March. Somttlme-i they pay a heavy penalty. There lia -e been such seasons of exces sive warmth In midwinter when many birds came as far ns the hike region, only to lie overwhelmed with snow nnei Intense cold In March, If not In the last half of I'eibruary. But ns a rule thn birds are saved from such a fate because of tlf! ,lPllrth of food so eaily In the season v,h,.,i thn danger that very w(nt,., W(.alnor wu follow. There aie enough SP,.(N (.f, ovcr the winter and enough early Insects and worms astir, after ,-, few days of warmth, to feed a small number of scouts ot the bird hosts, i,ul if ,,.

The firi-t of the spring songsters are always aide to pick up n living on almost any food It(.!,a can get along on seeds If no fiuh Is available Thoy can eat Insects or the ergs of ns(ot8 If no angle worms are within roach. Song sparrows need onlj secilH from Inst year's weod crop to save l hem from starvation, I'n a pinch. WMKN FlttJIT TIIEKS BI-OOM.

They do tiot toll e-hanct-B on supplies that they may bn In tho regions where thoy mako tholr summer home. They follow tholr quarry. It Is tho belief of many ornithologists that tho earliest of the returning song sters move northward In a way very dif ferent from tho method of mlgrntlon ad opted by tho myriads that follow these) enrly spring or lata winter explore! s, Tho first of the returning birds are thought to move along by easy ntages, testing tho weather and the food stock as they Journey along In leisurely fash Ion. In storms they are belleveid to stop Or even retreat at times, On the other hand, tho bird hosts that follow are said by some high authorities to rush north without stopping for much food or rest and undergoing exertions entirely out of harmony with their nub. sequent short flights and very limited range of movement, after they settle down for the summer. The first birds move as If they had to feel and watch the weather all the time. The tatter hosts sweep uji to a land ready In all respects lor their coming. As for tho wonder wrought every spring when millions of birds return to exactly the places frequented the summer before, the way It Is done Is one of the marvels of nature which man has never been able to solve.

The roofing problem has always been a vexatlems one for the farmer On bama ami sheds ho needed a light weight roof ing whieh be could lay himself without having to pay for skilled labor from town. Ready Roofings which wore matin f ictured for this purpose required paint ing regularly or they could not be mado to lai.t. Painting tho roofs evorv year or two was a nulsanco. The average far mer was protty sure to neglect it, whlla If he attended to It rcgnlnrly the epenso of the paint in the end amounted to more than the roof Itself. When a far mer bought ono of these painted roof ings he would figure, say $20 0) for thn roofing, nml HA) every two years for paint. If he figured on a ten years basis, his roof looked pretty expensive. All this hits been changed In recent years by the appearance In the market of Amntite roofing. Amatlte H laid nml handled like any other roofing except that It never needs to tie painted It has a surface of mineral matter firmly ce mented on so that ruin never can wash It off. This mineral surface is weather proof and furnishes a fine durable wear ing surface. The furmer who buys Ama tlte figures i20.oo for his roof, and noth ing for paint.
