age of Potash.
Idaho's sagebrush plains, the brush
on which has heretofore been consid
.«red worthless except for fuel, may
have a value unbelievable, for it has
[been discovered the brush contains sol
■Wible potash which may-place the weed
on a commercial basis. Experiments
are being conducted across the bound -
ary line In Nevada and' Utah which
may put an entirely different appear
ance on the humble sagebrush.
Ashes of sagebrush, according to
chemical Investigation, contain potash
soluble in water. The quantity varies
in different localities, but around
southern Utah and Nevada, there is
un average of 30 per cent. Further
more, the to-called "rabbit brush" con
tains even a higher percentage of pot
ash than the sagebrush.
Advertises for Ashes.
Senator M. L. Lee of Pioche, Nev..
has udvertised in the vicinity of Pioche
that he will buy. during the next three
months, ashes of sagebrush In carload
lots. The ashes will probably contain
from IB to 30 per cent of soluble pot
ash. The Pioche banker has contruct
ed to ship the ashes to the Virginia
Carolina Chemical company of Rich
Ifmond, Va., where they will he purified
so as to make pure potash. Arrange
monts have been made for a chemist in
Pioche to analyze tile ashes purchased,
and payment w ill he made according to
the following schedule:
,A*h containing 31 per cent water
^voluble potash or more, $95 per ton;
Kish containing 25 per cent or more, $80
per ton; ash containing 20 to 25 per
cent, $62.50 per ton; ash containing 15
to £0 per cent. $45 per Ion.
Senator l,ee lavs Issued the following
instructions concerning the preparation
of the sagebrush ashes for shipment:
It appears that the ieuves and small
er branches contain more potash than
the trunk, therefore care should be
taken to preserve, so far as possible,
Ute leaves and small branches.
The brush must be well burned,
the ashes ore taken from the fire t
soon they contain much carbon or
smaii particles of charcoal which con
É^.ain potash not soluble.
Must Exercise Care.
If the ashes or coals are permitted
to remain in the fire or near the in
tense heat generated by sagebrush un
til they cool gradually, the coals and
carbon will all go to ashes. However,
In burning on a large scale it may be
found advisable to screen the ashes and
reburn the charcoal. The best results
will be obtained by burning in the
open, without much draft. Draft lias
a tendency to carry away the lighter
particles containing potash. Remember
that the potash is water soluble, and
burning on the damp ground will lose
much of the potash. My best informa
•tion is that 20 tons will constitute a
carload.
Analysis of the ash should be made
at the beginning of the burning, in
order to determine tile average per
çent of potash you may expect, and an
other consisting of a sample from each
sack when the ash is ready for ship
ment. A certificate of the general av
erage v. 1'1 then be attached.

Mrs. Malcolm Strauss and her husband's portrait of Mrs. Arthur Seligman.
The painting on the right appears to be the crux of the whole dissen
sion between Mr. Malcolm Strauss, the artist, and his handsbme wife, whose
picture is shown on the left. Strauss painted a portrait of Mrs. Seligman,
and immediately found himself sued for separation by his wife, who also
started a suit for alienation of her husband's affections against the wealthy
Mrs. Seligman, asking $100,000 damages. Strauss denies any indiscretion,
and so does Mrs. Seligman.

LECTURE ON THE
OPERA IS GIVEN
Miss Judith Watts Gives
Fascinating Talk on
"Madama Butterfly.
S »
The Columbian club hall was filled
to overflowing Inst evening with an
audience which voiced its enthusiasm
time and again as It listened to the
nfastcrly lecture on "Madams Butter
fly" ' interspersed with music, which
Miss Judith Watts gave In a delight
fully interesting manner. The little
touches' of satire, now and then, only
served to intensify the Interest of the
fascinating address. *
In spite of the fact that over a hun
dred people had to stand, the enter
tainment was so good everyone forgot
they were not comfortably seated and
listened with the keenest sense of ap
preclutton to Miss Watts' lucid and en
tertaining treatise on grand opera,
Fucelni and his works, and on ''Mad
nma Butterly," considered his best ef
toyt.
Importance of the Conductor.
Miss Watts explained 'he great im
portance of the conductor, showing
that on him depends the success of the
performance. She mentioned that on
each successive fiait to the opera the
orchestra gradually assumes the most
prominent interest to all true rnusi
clans.
The speaker spoke of some of the
incongruities of gfand opera in which
not. one word is spoken; and dying sit
uations in which as the expiring char-j
acters even with their last gasp, the
singers have sufficient breath left
long and difficult phrases.
The lecturer pointed out the pathos
of poor little Butterfly's fate and the
utter carelessness of Pinkerton's at
tltude.
Puccini's Best Opera.
"Madama Butterly" Is Puccini's best
constructed opera, and . has met witli
marvelous success in both Europe and
America. Produced In Milan at the
famous "La Scala" theater in 1904
