HOW TO TELL GOOD FISH FROM THE BAD Delegates to the International Con. gness of Refrigeration Enlightened With Expert Opinion on Question. Chicago, Sept. 22. Three big organ izations, all concerned with the food problem discussed more or less tech nical subjects at sessions here today. The International Congress of Re- An frigeratlon, the Meat Packer Asso ciation and the National Poultry But ter and Egg Association met sepa rately, but their programs were re lated and they chose the same con vention date because of their com munity of Interests. The butter and egg men have as their prime object & unification of the standard of classifying poultry, but ter and eggs. At the refrigeration congress J. M. Bottemanne told the delegates how to tell good fish from bad. The" criteria are: "Good fish akin is shiny, scale strongly adhere to the skin, eyes transparent and bulging; gills bright red, flesh elastic and firm, Anger Impressions do not remain, mouth and gills nearly always closed, little or no slime on the skin, muscu lar stiffness evident to greater or lee degree, nsh sinks in water, after a short time fishy smell and slime on back appears." CONFESSION HAS SHOCKED POLICE Philadelphia Ofncers Do Not Believe That Jacob Wolfsohn, Who Say He Killed a Girl, I Totting the Truth. BY ASSOCIATE PRESS. Philadelphia, Sept. 22. Philadelphia police officials were not prepared to say that Jacob Wolfsohn, who says he killed Anna Catharine Schumacher in a cemetery at Rochester, N. Y four years ago, is telling the truth. Capt. Cameron, head of he detective bu reau, said the story the prisoner told seemed to bear out details of the crime as known here, but the doubts thrown around Wolfsohn's tale by the Ro chester authorities has caused the de tectives here to withhold any opinion as to his guilt. Wolfsohn, accused of larceny and forcibla entry, faces a prison term here. If the charges are sustained. The police believe the only motive Wolf sohn could have for confessing- he killed the girl, if his Btory proves un true, is that he might escape a prison sentence here if taken to New York state and there cleared of a murder charge. Sheriff Hamll and District Attorney Barrett arrived today from Roches -te to investigate Wolfsohn's story. Close guard is being kept over the prisoner since his alleged attempt at suicide last night.

The acene of the litigation ajver Harry Kendall Thaw shifts this week to the century-old New Hampshire caoitol. Just across the street from the hotel where the Matteawan fugitive has been sheltered since last "Wednesday. Gov. Felker arrived today to make final arrangements for the extradi tion hearing before him tomorrow. Pending the arrival of "William T. Jerome, special attorney general of New York, the petitioner, nothing will be made known concerning the argu ments in support of the extradition petition. None of the New York au thorities was here this forenoon. The place for holding: the hearing was one of the matters to be decided by Gov. Felker today. Two rooms have been suggested, one the senate chamber and the other the hall of representativs. The senate chamber seats fifty comfortably, but this num- : ber could be doubled to meet an emer- gency. Those in authority believe the attendance should be limited to counsel and newspaper men. Should th hear ing be public. It probably would be held In the hall of representative, wUere there !s room for persons. "Those life sruards jive you a tense cf security," aald one man. "Te, re plied the other.

Today the leasing of state convicts has been under consideration by the board of tate Institutions as provided by the act of 113. About forty prominent naval stores men were here and over thirty bids have been submtited. The bid range from $250 to $330 per con vict, and will average slightly 1 than the price the convict are bringing- now. Under the provision of the law the counties only asked for 152 convict, and therefore there will be about 900 able bodied male oonvlcts subject to lease.

The new lease will probably bring nearly as good a price as the present lease, which is $287 for each able bodied convict. SAILOR RUHR FOUND GUILTY A. C. TESTMAN 18 CONVICTED AT 8T.

EETIfJGS EOR FARMS iW I f J FULL BLAST EXPERTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA WILL BE BUSY UNTIL THE CLOSE OF THE YEAR CONDUCTING INSTI TUTES. . SPECIAL, TO THE JOURNAL. Gainesville, Sept. 22. The farmers' Institutes, conducted by the extension department of the University of Flor ida, are now under way, and from now until the close of the year the mem bers of this department will be almost constantly among the farmers in the different counties of the state. The meetings conducted ao far were those for which requests were made some time ago when it was not possible to meet them. During the month of September institutes have been con ducted at Boulogne in Nassau county, Marmville, in Putnam county, and Starke, in Bradford. On "Wednesday, September 17, the farmers and truck ers of Bunnell, in St. . John county, came together at the request of the Partners' Society of Equity, and met the farmers' Institute staff, when trucking, fruit growing, fertilizers, and general farming topics were discussed. Bunnell is a prosperous little town and shows progress in all quarters. There are many nice residences, some good stores, a bank, but better - still a lot of enthusiastic farmers and truck ers who are Just beginning to prepare their land and develop their farms and homes in that section. The mayor and the board of trade gave their es slstance in making the meeting a good one. ,A barbecue was held and a pic nic dinner served. After the institute was closed a ball game was arranged, and at night there was an entertain ment in the public halL On the 18th the best meeting ever held in Putnam county was conducted at Mannville. Much of the interest In this meeting was due to the efforts of Mr. H. T. Mann. Mr. Mann has been working with all his energies and strength to bring that community into a prosperous state. He has been in fluential in getting a number of good citizens and gives much of his time to the general development of the Elec tion. Heretofore the meetings at Mannville have been small, not more than twenty farmers attending, but at the meeting1 Thursday something like sixty people attended, most of whom were farmers who have been in the section for three or four years and ! who are now getting acquainted with conditions and are anxious to succeed- At these meetings Prof. Watson dis cussed "The Handling of Insects and Uses of Spraying Materials," which discussion brought out a great many questions as these truckers, like others, have had difficulty in controll ing the worms that bother tomatoes and other truck crops. Prof. Spencer, of the extension department, was spe cially requested! to talk on Irish po tato growing. Much of this land is well adapted to this crop and some few acres have been planted to Irish potatoes before. They expect to put in large areas this year and. handle the crop in the best way. It was em phasized that it was necessary to spray if they wished to grow the crop without danger of loss from insects. On September 20 Prof. Floyd met the Farmers' Club at Lakeland to dis cuss citrus culture, chiefly diseases of trees and soils. Prof. C. L.. Willough by and Prof. A. P. Spencer held a farmers' institute at Knights on that date General live stock, tick eradi cation and various subjects were dis cussed. The Knights settlement al ways responds promptly to farmers' institute gatherings. The farmers are large truckers and growers of staple crops, realizing that their only hope to make a success is to diversify their system in every way. Good meetings are expected in Te Soto and Lke counties this week. Mr. C. S. Bushnell of Arcadia, a lead ing citizen of that place, is doing all in his power to get every one out. Af ter the dates were closed a second request comes that meetings be held in other places in that county. Some of these must be deferred until Jan uary or February. The West Florida farmers are calling for institutes for October and November so that ar rangements are pretty well completed for institutes up until January. "While the extension department has been given an increase in equipment, yet everyone having to do with the management of these meetings ap preciates the limited equipment to carry out this work all over the state. This department of the university is bringing the farmers closer together, and is distributing substantial Infor mation as to what can be done on Florida soils. The possibilities of the Florida farmer are more than he ap preciates: his possibilities for failure are equally as great as if be pursues wrong methods.

EIGHTEEN CADETS LIABLE CONTEMPT By Appealing to Secretary Garrison Before Complaining to the Superin tendent They Will Be So Held. .BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Washington, Sept. 22. Eighteen ca dets of West Point now under punish ment for hazing, will lay themselves liable to court martial by appealing to Secretary Garrison without first com plaining to the superintendent of the military academy. The first complaint reached Washington today through a congressman. The cadets contend they are being punished for merely obeying their or ders in drilling lower classmen. They are charged, however, with .violating a regulation which forbids any cadet to force a lower classmate to assume "any ridiculous or humiliating posture." War department officials say that forcing the unfortunate freshman to puff out his chest or draw in his chin to' a painful position' comes under the head of "deviling youngsters" and not drill regulations.

' The cold weather of yesterday ac complished several things. The first and foremost was that it drove the X-RAY skirt Into retirement. An other, it chased those last summer straws and the third and by far the most important, it sent the "corner youth" to places more pleasant Th; latter's elimination was due to two reasons the wintry blasts that came from around the corners and the ab sence of the X-Ray skirt. Garden and Palafox streets, always popular in the late afternoons, bore a deserted appearance. There were no young men hanging around looking vestward as though they were momen tarily expecting the appearance of -i long lost friend, and some of the old codgers who always wait for their ears at that particular corner, boarded them at other points.
