GREAT INTEREST IN
CHICAGO CONVENTION
Never Before Has There Been
Such Intense Feeling Be
tween the Factions.
Chicago.—There never was a mora
Interesting republican national con
tention than that which assembled in
Chicago Tuesday. The situation at
tha opening of the convention was un
precedented in American politics. No
national convention was ever preceded
by auch a bitter factional fight over
Contested delegates. At the opening
of the convention no human being
could foretell the outcome. The hot
test battles in formed conventions of
any party seem almost insignificant
compared with that which culminated
here.

Roosevelt in Chicago.
- An unusual incident of the conven
tion is the presence in the city of one
of the leading candidates for the head
of the ticket. Colonel Roosevelt, wear
ing his new fighting hat, a compromise
between a sombrero and a rough ri
der's headgear, came into Chicago late
Saturday afternoon, and was acclaim
ed by thousands of his supporters and
admirers. The hat was in the air
throughout the automobile ride from
the station to the Congress hotel, wav
ing salutes of acknowledgement to the
cheers that marked his progress.
The entire convention struggle cen
tered about Roosevelt from the mo
ment he reached the city. Everything
pertaining to the convention on the
Roosevelt side is directly under the
supervision of the colonel himself.
Roosevelt leaders say it was principal
ly to have his personal advice at first
hand that they urged him to come,

THE PROTECTION
OF SHADE TREES
How to Fight the Insects That
Destroy Them.
THREE DIFFERENT GROUPS.
Leaf ' Eaters, Suckers and Borers.
Gypsy Moth, Brown Tailed Moth, San
Jose Scale and Leopard Moth Are the
Most Noxious of the Pests.
The growing interest in municipal
betterment throughout tiiis couutry is
nowhere better illustrated than in the
increased planting of residential city
streets with shade trees, the more sci
entific maintenance of such trees and
the wonderful development of boule
vard, park aud playground systems,
says A.T. Hastings, city forester of .Jer
sey City, N. J., in the American City.
From the cumulative mass of improve
ments the proper attention to shade
trees on the city streets is a detail ot
special and personal interest to the av
erage citizeu. affecting himself, his
family and his home directly and con
cretely. while at the same time affect
ing the city at large
Proper attention to shade trees in
any city presents several aspects, all
important in themselves and each of
a different and specific character The
choice of varieties to plant, the proper
planting of the tree, fertilization, wa
tering and caring for growth, pruning
and trimming, the destruction and pre
veution of insect and disease pests and
protection from mechanical injury and
from public utilities—all these are nee
essary and important points to consid
er. Of prime importance is checking
the ravages of insect pests
The insects infesting shade trees
may be classed under three groups
leaf eating insects, sucking insects and
those that feed during a part of their
lives inside the branches or trunks.
Among the leaf eating insects that are
specially noxious are the gypsy moth,
brown tailed moth, elm leaf beetle, fall
YOUNG SHADE TKEE BROKEN IN HALF BY
RAVAGES OK THE LEOPARD MOTH.
web worm, basket worm and the tus
sock moth The sacking insects are
the scale insects, such as the San Jose
and oyster shell scales and the plant
lice. Those that feed during a part of
their lives within- the wood of the
trees are called borers. Notable among
this group are the leopard moth and
the maple borer
In the spraying of large trees climb
ing into them is necessary, but with
the power machines a great deal of
this climbing is eliminated. Spraying
should continue during the entire feed
ing time of the caterpillars, or larvae.
There are also methods to be used in
the fight against leaf eating insects,
however, and these should not be
overlooked. One of these is by de
stroying cocoons and egg masses.
The fight against scale insects pre
sents a totally different aspect. These
Insects do not feed on leaves, but suck
the juices of the plants. Any poison
placed upon the leaf surface will have
no effect upon the insect, as none of it
will be eaten. A contact poison must
necessarily be used. Sucb poisons as
may be used in this case are whale
oil soap, lime sulphur mixture, soluble
oils and a variety of patent mixtures.
There are two feasible methods of
attacking borers One is to cut into
the wood and remove the borer with
the aid of a thin piece of wire and
then plug the cavity thus formed, to
prevent the entrance of water and to
promote healing. In some cases it is
not possible to get at the borer with
out removing too much wood, in such
cases If carbon bisulphide is poured
into the" hole and the hole sealed up
the fumes of this material will suffo
cate the borer The cost of removing
borers from large trees is so great as
make it almost prohibitive. How
ever, the greatest damage by borers is
to young trees, and as borers can easi
ly be removed from these it should be
done. It is slow, tedious work, but it
is amply repaid in the saving it ac
complishes
The actual spraying and other Insect
exterminating operations must be un
4er the personal and absolute direction
of a competent man. He must be a
man with a thorough knowledge of In
sect life. He must be constantly on
the watch for new and better material
to be used and have the initiative to
properly carry out the work.
Babfes In Arabia.
1 ife for a baby iu Arabia is no

being especially difficult. A royal baby's
first toilet consists In winding a bond
age around its body after it bas been
carefully bathed and perfumed. If the
child be a girl on the seventh day after
her birth holes, usually six in number,
are pricked in her ears, and when she
is two months old heavy gold rings are
attached to them to be worn through
out her lifetime except during periods
of mourning for relatives. On the for
tieth day the baby's head is shaved,
and the disposal of the hair is regarded
as a weighty matter. It must not be
burned or carelessly thrown away, but
buried, thrown into the sea or hidden
away. The fortieth day marks a turn
ing point in the child's life. Hereto

but now it may be seen by anybody
and is regarded as fairly launched on

Songs of Day Before Yesterday.
We made up a catalogue recently of
popular songs of the last two decades.
Hardly was it set in type before those
omitted began to swarm to memory.
"Shoo Fly, Don't Bother Me," might
have been added to the numerous old
timers. "Put Me Off at Buffalo."
"And Her Golden Hair Was Hanging
Down Her Back." "On the Banks of
the Wabash Far Away," "Rosie O'Gra

Baltimore" and "I'd Leave My Happy
Home For You-00-00-oo." "Goodby.
Dolly Gray," "She Was Happy Till
She Met You." "Bedelia." "Sammy"
and "Teasing" had their intense and
fleeting existence. Too popular to be
overlooked were "Mister Dooley," "in
the Shade of the Old Apple Tree."
"Everybody Works but Father" and
"Waiting at the Church." Of the whole
crop it seems as If all were transitory
except "There'll Be a Hot Time in the
Old Town Tonight."—Collier's Weekly.
The Track of the Earth.
If the sun and earth and the earth's
orbit could be seen, then the track of
the earth would be a spiral around that
of the sun. Go take a broomstick,
wind wire around it like thread on a
spool, take out the stick and stretch
the coil until the space between each
turn is. say, one-third of an inch and
make a hundred turns of the wire.
Then this ..piral or coil would repre
sent the track of the earth through
space during a hundred years. The
isun moves toward the star Vega at a
speed of twelve miles per second and
carries the earth, all the planets and
their moons along. But they all move
around the sun at the same time and
therefore traverse spirals, represented
fairly by extended coils of wire.—Ed
gar Lucien Larkin in New York Ameri

The Canny Justice.
"Thet's a durned fine lookin' car o*

"You bet it is," said Dubbleigh. "1

this morning in just fifty-five minutes.
Going some, eh?"
"Ya-as." said the old gentleman,
stroking his whisker thoughtfully.
"Kin ye prove it?"
"1 have five witnesses in my guests,"
said Dubbleigh.
"Waal, I'll take yer word for it."
said the stranger. "Jest fork over

A famous craniologist while strolling
leisurely through a churchyard found
a gravedigger tossing up the earth in
which there were two or three skulls.
The craniologist took them up and.

THE DEACON'S
STORY
By M. QUAD
Copyright, 1912. by AssMMtted Lit
erary Prest.
Snyder, the grocer in tb* village of
Hampton, had a foom Mek of his
store in which certiin old fillows used
to gather of an ivenihg and play
checkers or tell yarns. It Was a harm
less gathering, and no atop ever criti
cised it. The clufr, as it was called,
had been running two of three years
when Deacon Stratfeers dipped in one
evening to have a glass Of cider anc l
listen to a few yard*. He was uo talk
er. No one had ever kuown of his
telling a story. He was always quiet
and thoughtful, and he started to do
something that night that astonished
the others.
"How Silas come purty nigh losing
his scalp puts me in mind of some
thing," observed the deacon to the
great surprise of all in the room
He waited a minute for all to settle
back in their chairs and then went on;
"Twenty years ago me an' Dave Ben
son went up to Wildcat hill to gather
chestnuts. On the way up 1 told Dave
that we must be careful* as I had a
feeling that something #as going to
happen. When we got to the hill we
found chestnuts thicker 'h fleas on a
dog. There was n>> need of climbing a
tree, but bimeby Drive said be was go
ing to do it.
" *Dave, it's dangerous.' says I.
•• •William, I kno# it," he replies.
"It was jest about two minutes
later." said the deacon as he looked
around, "that"—
"What?" asked every man in chorus.
The deacon had opened his lips to
reply when there was a great shouting
from the street, arid all the men in the
room ran out. A mad dog bad passed
without biting any one. but the meet
ing of the club had been broken up.
and the rest of the deacon's story must
wait. It did wait. For one cause or
another he did not drop Into the room
again for three yeafs Then he found
only four of the original seven that
had heard the hrst part of his story.
The quartet were very anxious to hear
the outcome, however, and the deacon
sat down and said:
"Well, there was Dave Benson up a
chestnut tree, aud there was ine stand
ing on the ground Dave was a good
climber, but there was my feelings that
something was going to happen. Some
of you may have had 'em. I kept hoi
lering up to Dave to be careful for
mercy's sake, and he kept replying that
he would, when"—
"Yes. deacon. When what?"
"Let's see. I think Dave had been
married about seven years then. It
may have been eight, and it may have
been only six. I don't want to say
eight if it wasn't but six."
"But let that go Dave is up a tree."
"He was. 1 should say he was up
forty feet Might have been a foot
more or less I thought of going back
there to measure, but I never did."
"But get along to the accident. It
don't make no difference whether Dave
fell thirty-nine or forty feet."
"1 told him that it would be awful to
fall aud break a leg."
"Deacou. will you tell us at once
what happened?" interrupted Henry
Clay Smith, one of the trio;
"I was going to.''
"But get to it. rhen."
"I didn't know there was any hurry
about it. Seems to me you are just
aching to have Dave fall and break his
neck."
"No, no. no! But, you see, it's three
years since you started in on this
story."
"1 didn't know anybody was pressed
for time. At least I hain't, and I'll
save the rest for some other day."
Apologies were made and arguments
used, but the deacon's feelings had
been hurt, and he walked off without
another word. Iu the next three years
three of the original seven men died
and two moved away, leaving only two
to wonder when they would ever fiud
the deacon in the mood to finish that
story. Dave Benson had moved to
Kansas long before the first part of it
was told, and so he couldn't be ap
pealed to to finish it
One day a summons came to the two
survivors that Deacon Strathers lay
dying of fever and wanted to see them
before the end came Together they
drove out to the farm. He was not
only conscious, but he had been prop
ped up in bed and given a stimulant
that he might talk.
"Boys." he said, after be had offered
them a greeting hand, "six years ago
in Snyder's back room 1 started in to
tell you a story."
"Yes. deacon."
"I never finished it."
"No, and don't try to now."
"But I must. I feel I owe it to you,
and I want to go with a clear con
science. Dave Benson and me was
after chestnuts."
"You were."
"He climbed a tree."
"So you said."
"I tried to stop him, but up he went"
"Yes."
"And I was hollering at him to be
careful for mercy's «ake. when some
thing happened."
And what happened? We have been
wondering for years."
"Why, Dave said be gtiessed he*4
rome down."
"And he tumbled and"-
"Nope Slid down like a cat and
never even tore his trousers, and we
got a bushel of chestnuts and come
home! That's all."
And that, night the deacon passed
away with a smile on his face.
