VOLUME n NEWARK, DELAWARE, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2, 1911 NUMBER 28 BIG CARNIVAL OPENS TODAY ual Goo i weather and large crowds with plenty of money to spend, Chairman E. Clifford Wilson stated last night, is all that is required to make the Carnival a great success. Good weather will no doubt bring out the crowds with the money, so that really, according to Mr. Wilson's ideas, it is now up to the wea in ther man. The college campus was a busy place last night, and In fact has been a busy for the past several days and evenings. Everyone seemed to be willing and anxious to give a helping hand and in fact this has been the spirit shown by all ever since the preliminary arrange ments were started several weeks ago. I,a3t night there were stage carpenters, Other carpenters and all classes of me chanics assisting with the final prepara tions. The committee desires to thank »11 who have helped and this really menus every resident of Newark as wen .ij many who live outside of the town. The women of Newark have been espec ially liberal and there 1s hardly a woman in the town who has not donated a cake, caody, etc. The big Carnival will be opened this evening following the automobile par ade, which is to start from tne lowei ond of the town, move up Main street, and enter the college grounds. The com ralj.tee several days ago decided to start tire parade at 7 o'clock instead of 8 »'clock, as previously announced, be cause of the days getting shorter and i.he fact that it was thought best to have it in daylight. Many owners of machines have given assurances that they will enter so the parade will no diubt be a feature. The committee has offered $M In gold to the best decorated | machine, and the judges are Fataei ! Dougherty, Levi Bowen and Everett C. Johnson. Th" committee during the past few days has received a number more dona tions among which ware the following: ■Hieodore Armstrong, $10; S. M. Don pell, $5; George G. Kerr, $5; George W. Griffin, $5, and George H. Huber, $10. What will be one special feature all during the four days of the Carnival is the vaudeville and moving picture show to be held in the large tent. It will be practically by local talent but those wno know all who are on the program, say it wiil be well worth the 10 cents admis sion to be charged. The committee has been especially fortunate In securing Mrs. Jane Murray, proprietress of a duck farm, a short distance from Newark, to Mrs. Murray has had considerable experience singing in public and has a beautiful voice. While the vaudeville and moving pic ture 3how will be a feature, it is only one of many attractions. There are about 8 tents and there will be attrac tions in all of them. Everything that goes to make up the high class Carnival has been arranged for. There will .* the merry-go-round, shooting at targets, throwing at babies, ringing canes and many other amusements. With the ex ception of the merry-go-round most all of these amusements have been arrang ed for by the people ot Newark. The grounds are expected to present a pretty sight of evenings, as there will be several hundred small electric light* sha led with different colored Japanese lanterns. In addition to being held every evening during the remainder of the week the Carnival will also be open £>n Saturday afternoon. any. on of jor I sing.

A fourth party com posed of Westerners touring in the East, was also waylaid. Magistrate Lovett, Officer Reed and Delaware Lovett hurried to the scene, bu no trace of the man could be found.

M'CUE'S WORK COMMENDED tion. of to the of The State of Delaware is a synonym For many years its nai • was associated with the finest peaches, and it almost seemed from newspaper re fer fine fruit. ports that the prosperity of the nation depended upon the extent of the injUV of late frosts to the peach orchards of the State. Later the little diamond state has become a great strawberry center. Land that a few years ago was con sidered almost worthless for any pur pose is now selling for $100 to $150 per acre to produce strawberries, from nearly every prominent city east of the Ohio river bringing hundreds ot thousands of dollars dump it into the banks of the State in exchange for Dela ware strawberries to be shipped In re frigerator cars and less favored locali ties. Buyers the ing of of Later Delaware ha3 made Itself felt Not on as an apple producing State, account of the quantity grown, but ra ther because the fruit is 30 perfect In size, shape, color and flavor that it ex cells tbe apples from all other States and sells for the highest prices to the So superior are these apples consumer. in quality and so great is the demand fo rthem that one prominent grower told the writer that be once sold a single barrel for $24 and $1.20 a dozen is fre quently obtained for Delaware apples on Philadelphia fruit stands. Some of the pioneer onehardists in lit tle Delaware would be called bonanza apple growers If they lived In the West, where everything is done on a large scale. Ht is perhaps not generally known that one farmer in this State who has said but little and done much is making 10 per cent on a $100,000.00 in vestment from his apples. Another Is now living on the sunny side of easy street when a few years ago he was playing hide and seek with the shereiff, and won the game by hiding behind an apple tree. There is enough unwritten history of tbe development of the fruit industry In Delaware to make several volumes of very interesting reading—reading that would appeal to almost any type of mind, from high tragedy to the simple record of rewarded honest endeavor. The reader will ask the question per haps what are the factors that have made the fruit industry so prominent in Delaware. There are a number but the most prominent are soil, climate, ac cessibility to tlhe best markets, commun ity of interests in fruit growing and the application of science, as fast as It has been developed, to the industry. There is no kind of agriculture that has needed the assistance of the seien- j tiftc men as much as the growing of | trees. Not only is It Important to have the proper element of plant food for the ! orchard, but in order to «row fruit of the highest quality it is essential that the nitrogen is not in excess of the phos- ! phorus and potassium, if it is the trees will grow wood, but little fruit, and this of mediocre quality. Again, if the soil lawks potassium the fruit Is likely to be deficient in color and flavor. Tillage plays an Important part In keeping the apples from railing off. It also effects the size of the fruit. During recent years the orchardlst has been called upon to fight all kinds of insect pests. The successful man recognizes the work of the insect that eats tihe fol iage of the tree and distinguishes it from that of the bug that either lays Its egg In the young apple, peach or plum, or seeks the juice from the leaf, or vines though it Is thus destroying Its functional powers. Each trouble cails for a specific treatment which the scien tific farmer has on hand and applies in a scientific manner. What has been said of insect troubles applies with equal force to fungus and bacteria! troubles without the aid of the i j at to an in i scientific investigator, who ha3 led the way in the development of modern me thods of growing fruit, come from the industry would be but a tithe of what it Is today, In spite of our soil, our climate, our markets, there Delaware's in would have been no community of Inter est, a factor whose value and importance can not be over estimated. All of the problems In fruit growing have not been worked out yet by any BURKE'S DEATH WARRANT HAS BEEN SIGNED I Unless the Board of Pardons ot the ■ State of Pennsylvania interferes William ; Burke, under sentence of death in the Chester County Prison for the murder of James C. McNamara, will be hanged on Thursday, August 31, in the prison where he is confined. His death war rant was signed by Governor Teuer ot Pennsylvania on Saturday. McNamara was shot In his home In Elk township on February 26, 1910, and dfed a few days later In the Delaware Hospital, hurried with the hope of saving his life. His ante-mortem statements were taken to the hospital and the inquest was held Wilmington, where he wai there. Burke shot and killed McNamara dur ing a dispute over $10, which he claimed was owing to him. The shooting was When McNamara open most deliberate. ed the drawer to secure the money Burke fired and fatally wounded his viettm who Burke was found died a few days later. guilty after a short trial some months later, sentenced to death and since then had delayed the signing ot the governor the death warrant. It 1s a question whether an applica a manner of means, ctantly presenting themselves for solu tion. Some of them like the peach yel lows, the little peach and the crown gall have been inherited from the orchardists of previous generations. These prob lems are of Just as much economic im portance as they ever were and in Mit probability it is but a question of time before some research worker delving in to what is now the unknown, will And the keys to one or all of the mysteries of the diseases that have ruined the fruit industry in many sections of the country. New ones are con While the Investigators at the Dela ware Experiment Station are keenly alive to any developments that may give them a lead on these old troubles, the Horticulturist especially i3 throw ing most of his energies into the solu tion of some of the newer problems that are confronting the fruit growers not only of Delaware, Ibutofthewhole State. One of these is the function of the separate elements of plant food, nitro gen, phosphorus and potassium, play In the production of the peach. Prof. Mz Cue bas attacked the question In a very Ingenious manner and bas devised a method of work that not only elicited the highest compliments from the aepatV ment of Agriculture of the National gov ernment, but has attracted the attention of nearly every horticultural investiga tor In the country. It ia probably tee mo3t elaborate piece of research work of tt3 kind that has ever been under taken, and if present indications can i $ taken as any criterion can not fall l>» throw much light upon this Important question. Another phase of fruit growing that Prof. MeCue is attacking with charac teristic vigor is the value of different kinds of cover crops. It Is well knoWb that successful fruit growers plow therl orchards in the spring, and give them clean cultivation until about the first of August. In this way moisture is con served, plant food U liberated from the soil, nitrification Is stimulated and tne maximum growth Is received. In the late summer it is necessary to sow some crop among the trees to check their In on is in Is was an of In of that of per have in the growth and allow the yefung tender growtlh to mature and harden before the winter freezes set ii Moreover, the cover crop on tihe land prevents the rai"' ' om washing the orchard and when plowed down the following spring, add humus and fertility to the soil. The ef fect of leguminous and non leguminous crops upon the soil when used in con nection with the fertilizer that the ap plied to the orchard ia not very thor uederstood. Neither do we know ac the has that j o: of | '"he exact effort of the various legumes have the ! flavor of the fruit. These are the facts of that Prof. McCue is now working out. the Eo r this work he has an ideal equip phos- ! nient at the State farm in the way ot trees orchards of both peach and apple of this commercial extent. The trees In all the soil be In It been insect fol it lays or leaf, Its cails scien in and the upon the size, color keeping quality and i plots are exceedingly thrifty, and tha chairman of the State Board of Agrieul j ture has remarked that it is the finest peach orchard in the State. Another piece of work that Professor McCue haa undertaken is to determine the effect of different methods of prun ing upon the development of the tree, Its accessibility as regards spraying and gathering the fruit as well as Its size and color. These are essentials when we consider the difficulty of securing efficient help on the farm, and the demand ot the con sumer for perfect fruit of large size and high color. Many of the trees in Prof. MoCue's orchard at the College farm are pruned with these points in mind, and the fruit growers of Delaware are wait ing with considerable Interest to see what the result will be measured in re turn per acre in dollars and cents. The above are but a few of the many i the me a our there problems that are engaging the atten tion and efforts of the Horticulturist ol Delaware College—when it is considered that he is carrying two-thirds us much work in the class room as the average college professor, it will be seen that in Inter the one who Is in charge ot the develop ment of the fruit industry in the State must needs be a careful, systematic and any energetic man. tion will be made to the Board of Par J. Frank E. Hanse, one ot coun sel for Burke, stated today that It ia a question whether this action will Be taken under the circumstances. In prison Burke has proven a good prisoner, but the employes there be lieve tha he is not ot sound mind by reason of recent actions. He has writ ten many letters showing his state of mind and has repudiated his counsel, claiming they made no effort to save him. He has also demanded a trial by judges of another state in his lettefi.

Neither team made a hit or reached first base until tlhe fifth inning and then in that one inning every error of the game and more than half of the hits were made. "Vic" Willis, had to do his best to win, and then the victory was due to t.he visitors bunching all of their errors in one inning, or otherwise Willis would have suffered his first defeat of the sea son on the local grounds. With the ex ception Oif the one inning both clubs played a star game in the field. Hale thorpe especially featured in fielding in the first four innings and when in tha fifth inning they came in and on two singles, a double and Jackson's error, scored three runs, it looked like "tu «s old ball game," for the visitors. Shipley, the twirler from tihe Monu mental City, had been going good «nj it was hard luck that the infield back of him should all go to pieces in the one inning. Tooney made two, Zimmerman one and Bullett one error in the fifth, which with a scratch single brought three Newark players over the plate. Both teams settled down after the fifth and played the kind of ball the remain der of the contest that featured the first part of the game. In the sixth inning, after Marsey Into walked, Delaware Willis picked out a nice one and drove it to the railroad tor a homer, scoring Marsey ahead of hl-a. This was the only clean hit that New ark got off Shipley, as both of the others were of the scratchy variety. The score by innings follows: Newark ...

It is understood that other improvements towards increasing the capacity of this plant will be made in the near future. Previous to this spring Mr. Moran had been in Mexico for more than two years and had an interesting and also danger ous exnerienee with the Insurrectos there in the latter part of May. He was employed by the Benito Jundaez Mines Company of Mexico City and had charge of the Power department of that com pany's mine« some distance from Mexico City. About 500 men were employed at the mines, and on May 29 a large de tachment of Insurrectos came down on them and gave them all 24 hours to get out. This order left practically nothing else for them to do but leave and in the words of Mr. Moran, "We beat It." Even before they got away, however, the sol diers did much damage and flooded tne mine3. Mr. Moran arrived in New York about the middle of June and at once got a position with the company that he Is now working for. He speaks in logwing terras of the great opportunities in Mex ico and expects to return there after it ha3 all quieted down again.

It is to be hoped that hereabouts who owns or can appropriate an automobile will enter that parade. You know how old the parade spirit is. Why, when Father Noah moved his ani mal kingdom into the ark, they went in two by two, and I believe those who aid not enter were lost in the flood.
