Fifty thousand pouuds of high grade bonbons were shipped to the Hupply ship the Culgoa of Admiral Kvans' fleet, early In the great voy ii KO to Mngdiilena Bay. But this a mount of candy was not regarded as nil excessive. In tho separate can teens of the battleships there was probably a greater supply of bon lions.

LON D, MARRS FOR MAYOR It may be necessary, from a stand point of custom, and for tho satis faction of those who may be favor able or unfavorable to my candidacy for mayor of the city of Amarlllo to present for your consideration a few of tho many policies I recom- mend. I acknowledge that history voices my experience, and observation of some of the difficulties of "others" supplies the wanting information that the average American citizen Is an actor and delights In gossip, and vIh not content unless most all can didates (some few guilty escape) are laid upon the dissecting table and afterwards form a character uncn . viable Indeed; and must be willing ' to bear tho contempt of all truly good, while others revel In state ments untrue about the candidates usually they do not endorse, and roll the bit of scandal gathered ns a sweet morsel under their tongues. Therefore I launch my vessel upon the uncertain sea of political life, ex pecting to guide safely my weather beaten bark over the surging waves of politics, and on the 7th day f April, 1908. arrive safely at the Ha ven I aspire. ' I shall, If successful, enter upon my duties without cherished resent . mcnt to anyone. It shall be an effort on my part to perform my official duties Just and honest, recognizing that nil men are created equal; that the government of the people, by the people, for the people Is the Alpha and Omega of principles that stand squarely against deception, corruption and graft. I favor, when privileges, rights and franchises are granted, accepted, used and usurped by the grantee, that In return for a proper conalder atlon tho citizenship and tax-payers nre entitled to such service and pro tection as contemplated under the laws governing such things. 1 favor most heartily, the volun tary fire department and believe that this department should be encour aged to procuro nil resources nec essary to complete and maintain successfully an outfit that will guar antee such protection as will be safe to prevent destruction of property by fire. I favor a sanitary regulation, spe cial and general that will make our ctly, both In appearance and reality, clean and appreciative, and I shall Insist on this ordinance being thor oughly effective, I favor an economic, conservative and Judicious administration, con sistent expenditures of finances for good Improvements that will he per manent and equally distributed over the city as tho conditions demand. I favor taxations and valuations placed on property that are fair, Just and equitable and not specula tive valuations, I favor equitable and reasonable compensations for all city officers In accordance with their labors and abil ity to perform duties Incunrbent upon each respective officer, and not such compensations as will pauperize one and capitalize another. I favor the method that the city officials should be actively prominent to give their moral support and pres ence at all times, and his financial assistance compared with his abil ity to do, fi.r the welfare, prosper ity and up-building of Amarlllo; to endorse and participate In all public enterprises giving such aid as will give our town a respectful and sub stantial representation. I favor good government and nec essary policing of tho city, to en force tho laws and give protection to property and the people. If these few outlines meet with your approval, I would appreciate your endorsement. Kespectfully, LON D. MARKS, FROST DAMAGE IS MORE SERIOUS Mr. Editor: You were In error yesterday In your statement In which you said our fruit was not damaged and that we would surely have a full crop this year. After making a thor ough examination on my place I find the peaches nre nearly all killed not more than 3 per cent left unhurt. The tame plums have not suffered so much. The wild plums have suf fered but little. Cherries are slight ly killed. Some varieties of apples seem to he all killed, while others are only slightly damaged, perhaps other varieties have entirely escaped. Grapes and strawberries not yet far enough advanced In bloom to have been killed. !t was tho Sunday night frost that did the destructive work. Yours. SUBURBANITE. Is Doing Well.

Spare That Tree." was general of the New York militia and favorite with all who knew him. Mrs Sherwood In her reminiscences tell' how another poet associated the geuer al wit. a definition of poetry. Once Kitz-Graene Ualleck. the autho: cf "Marco Bnzzaris." called upon ber In New York In bis old age. and she asked hhn to define for her what was poetry and what was prose. He replied: "When General' Morris commands bis brigade and says, 'So: dlers. draw yonr swords? be talks .-rose. When he says 'Soldiers, draw your willing swords!' he talks poetrj." BOUGHT BIQ SAFE3. Thu War Jar oultl nraimhl Ts prna omaanr la Tirmi, Itecalllng early days In tho express business, nu olllcer of one of the largest companies told this story of Jay Gould: "Gould ii nd I'lsk then had hold of tha Erie." lie said, "and the United States Express company had all the express business on the road. The con tract was about to expire, and Gould wtnted an arrangement more prollta bio to the Krlo. 'The Krle's doing all the work and you're mnkliig all the money,' Gould said to the express people. You ought to do some of the work nwl give the railroad chance st the money.' "Tho express compuuy officials de murred. Tholr profit, they Insisted, was no more than they were entitled to, and they refused to shade tlie eon tract a penny, Gould Insisted on a de crease, but they remained oUlurtite and eveutuslly let the Krle president uuderslnud what he very well kivw that no other company would compete against tint United States for the Lrle business. All the companies at that time were In au agreement to maintain rates. ' 'All right,' said Gould at the conclu sion of the Interview, 'you've no objec tion, I guess, to my going Into the ex press business for myself. It looks better than railroading.' "Tho express people replied that Gould could organize all the companies be wanted to. They thought it was all Muff, but things that came to their at tention soon weakened their faith In this Idea. Gould was going around among his associates talking up on ex press company scheme, aillcluls of oth er roads were told tint a new company would be In the Held to bid for their business, and the pcrg begun to talk about the new Gould express company "The express otllclals, however, saw none of Gould's money going Into the enterprise and stood pat. Presently It was reported that he had bought twenty-four big express safes. Was this talk or was It business? the express men asked themselves. They set to work Investigating, and they discover ed thnt the report was true. Gould had actually bought and paid for the safes safes cost money In those days, too and ho was negotiating for all the oth er equipment required. "Now, thoroughly convinced of Gould's sincerity, the express company came to terms. Gould got the best con tract from a railroad standpoint that bad been known up to tbat time. The clause In the contract that tho United States Express company considered most valuable to Itself was one stipu lating the abandonment of Gould's ex press plans. "It was all a bluff on Gould's part except buying the safes. For that mat ter the purchaso was, of course, part of the bluff, but Gould bad actually bought and paid for them uncondition ally. Nevertheless be lost nothing on tho deal, for as soon as frieudly rela tions were established with the express officials he persuaded them they could use the ssfes In their business and sold them at a llttlo better Uiun cost." Washlngton Post "Next!" "I was counsel for a railway compa ny In the west," says a prominent New York lawyer, "In whose employ a sec tion hand had been killed by an ex press train. Ills widow, of course, sued for damages. The principal witness swore positively ihat the locomotive whistle bad not sounded until after the entire train bad passed over bis depart ed friend. " 'You admit thnt the whistle blew?' I sternly demanded of the witness. M 'Oh, yes; It blew.' " 'Now,' I added Impressively, 'If that whistle sounded In time to give Mor gan warning the fact would be In favot of the company, wouldn't it? " 'I suppose so,' said tho witness. " 'Very well. Now. for what earthly purpose would the engineer blow bis whistle after the man bad been struck 7 " 'I presume,' replied the witness, with great deliberation, 'that the whis tle was for the next man on the track.'

Its Power cf Changing Color For 6alf Protection. The tree frog Is found throughout the eastern United States, ranging west to Kansas and Texas and north Into Canada. II Inhabits woods and or clmrds and Is found ou treesk stone walls, fences and houses. The egi;s, which are deposited early In May, are attached singly or lu small groups to grass or dead stems at the surface of tho water. Burly In July the young have passed through the tadpole stage and leave the water. They are green at first, but soon turn to grey or gray ami green. The tree frog Is largely nocturnal In habits and feeds ou In serts. It Is notable for Its many color changes and varies from almost white to green or dark brown or various com binations of green and gray. While the tree frog Is common throughout the eastern United States, Its purring trill Is far more familiar thnn the frog Itself, owing to Its retir ing habits and powers of resembling lu color the object ou which It rests. The tree frog Is thus one of the best as well as one of the most familiar exam ples of what Is called protective colora tion, a resemblance In color between any animal ami Its surroundings that lenders It lncousplcuous and enables It to elude the eyes of animals. Mlt-s Mary Dlckerson lu "The Frog Hook" ssys: "The color varies greatly at different times and In different con ditions. In bright light and high tem perature It may be yellowish white with no markings, in a dark, moist r cool place It may be deep stone grny or brown. Wbeu the background of color Is green his characteristic mark ings may or may not appear. The changes of color sre not rapid, an hour at least seeming necessary to create any radical difference. Itut It Is usual ly true that the given dress harmonizes so perfectly with the surroundings tbat the tree frog Is as Invisible ss though be were Perseus In his charmed hel met." First Aid. Mr. Flgglns, the brad of the family, observing that the eaves over his kitchen bad become clogged by au tumn leaves, clltubed a tree standing near the house, wltb the Intention of removing the obstruction. Just as be was about to scoop out a handful of the leaves the dead limb on which bo was standing gave way, and he start ed to fall. Instinctively grasping at other limbs and managing to get his legs round the trunk of the tree, be checked his fall and hung there, bead downward, holding on with all his might. "Sophia P he yelled. "Come out here, quick!" Mrs. Flgglns, torrlbly alarmed, came hurrying out. "Oh. Arthur," she exclaimed, "how did that happen T" "Never mind how It happened: be shouted. "Get a chair!" The chair was brought. "Now stand up on It." "Arthur. I'm not strong enough to help yon down!" "I'll get down all right," he panted, "as soon as I can get right end up ward. What I want you to do la to take this fountain pen out of the hold er In my vest pocket It's leaking like anything." Youth's Companion. Origin of "Robin Adair." Those who have a leaning to the sen timental aide of history will accept the version that the hero of the ballad was a young and handsome Irish surgeon, who, finding bis wsy Into Loudon soci ety about the middle of the eighteenth century, was fortunate enough to se cure the affections of Lady Caroline Keppel, daughter of William, second earl of Albemarle, and bis wife, Lady Anno Lennox, daughter of Charles, first duke of Richmond. The match was naturally looked on with disfavor by the family of the young lady, and It was during a period of temporary separation that Lady Caroliue Is said to havo written the words of "Robin Adair" and set them to the old Irish tune of "Eileen Aroon," which she bail learned from her lover. At length, however, love triumphed, and the pair were united on Feb. 22, 1718. Within a few days Adair was appointed In spector general of tho military hos pitals and, subsequently becoming n favorite of the king, was made sur geon general, king's sergeant surgeon and surgeon of Chelsea hospital. Ho died In 1700, leaving an only son, who entered the diplomatic service and be came tho Ulght Hon. Sir Robert Adair, G. C. I!. London Notes and Queries. A JUBILEE JOKE. Lady ChurohiHs Bustle That Played "God Sava tha Queen." Everything that year (Queen Victo ria's Jubilee year) was dubbed "Jubi lee." from kulghts aud babies to hats nd coats. "God Save the Queen" was heard ad nauseam ou every conceiva ble occasion until the tuue became au obsession, This led to a practical Joke at the castle which caused much amusement. One morning, speaking of the Jubilee craze, I pretended that I had received as an advertisement s "Jubilee bustle," which would play "God Save the Queen" when the wear er sat down. This, of course, created much curiosity and laughter. Having promised to put it on, I took my hosts Into my confidence. An ald-de-camp w as pressed into the service and armed with a small musical bos was made to bide under a particular armchair. While the company was at luncheon I retired to don the so called "Jubilee wonder," and when they were all as sembled I marched In solemnly and slowly sat down on the armchair w here the poor aid-de-camp was biding bis crumped limbs. To tlie dellgtit ami astonishment of every one the national anthem was heard gently tlnkllnii forth. Ucry time I rose It stopped; every time I sat down It began again. I still luiigh when 1 think of It and of the astonished faces about uie. "Item Inlsceuces of Lady Uandolph Church Ill" In Century.

Humorous Incident of Glsdstone'a Ri valry With Disraeli. An anecdote of Gladstone at tbo time of bis greatest rivalry with Disraeli Is often retold. At a dinner party the subject of Judaism cropped up. "Admitted," said Gladstone, "that the Hebrews have given the world a philosopher In Spinoza, musicians In Mendelssohn and Meyerbeer, a poet In Heine, the fact remains thnt tbey have n3t produced a single statesman." There was silence for a moment. Ev ery one knew of course that this was a direct allusion to Disraeli. Then one of the company stepped Into tho breach. "Mr. Gladstone," he said, "as a mat ter of fact the Hebrews have produced a statesman and one of the greatest the world has seen." The fighting ( Instinct of Mr. Glad stone surged' Up at once. "May I ask, slr,""bo said pointedly, "who was this nebrew statesman?" Every one, anticipating a more than lively scene, waited In tense expecta tion for the answer. It came In the quietest tones, "Moses, sir." Every one smiled, and Mr. Gladstone Joined In the laugh. Vienna Welt, A Pat Bear. Bears unless hungry or abused are good natured animate and make amus ing pets. "When I was In tho revenue service at Alaska," said a lieutenant, "we had a pet bear ou the boat, and we called him Wlneska. He used to climb to the crosstrees, going up band over band by the ratlines. One day be ventured out on the yardarm, and there he stayed. We had to get a rope and haul him down. Once be faulted over the head of our Chinese cook and went Into the lockers, where be helped himself to sugar and butter. We bad a tackling made for blm, much the same as a harness of a et pug, and we would drop him overboard, with a rope attached, to take his bath. Once be landed in a native boat and nearly frightened the occupants out of their wits. He was as playful as a kitten, and, although he sometimes disobeyed, he was never treacherous or unkind When he was lost or hid himself, as ho often did. we would look In tho dark till we saw two little balls of flro. These were his eyes snd gave hhn away every time." She Carried a Parcel. The laugh Is ou one of the attend ants at the Congressional library at Washington. One of the rules Is that no one shall be sllowed to carry a par cel of any kind Into the building. One day a tall young woman up pen rod at the door, and when the attendant sav that she bad a parcel under her arm be told ber that It was against the rules for her to take it with ber. She demurred and pronounced the rule absurd. There were certain parcels that people should be allowed to carry with them, and so forth, and so forth. But the man Insisted that he must en force the rule and tbat she would have to leave the parcel with him until she came out. That settled It. The young woman delllierately opened the parcel, took from It three pairs of black stock ings that she evidently had Just bought, and. hanging them over ber arm. she gave the attendant the paper In which they had been wrapped, say ing: "There, please keep that until I come out I have no parcel uow."
