He said: The reconstruction of the open coun try must depend in the main on the ef forts of the country people themselves. "We are glad of all interchange of pop ulations; the influx of country blood has thus far been the salvation of cities; to nnrm nf oitr.' np.onle has set new as- piratlons into the country, and it is still necessary to call on the cixies for labor In times of pressure: but stated in its large terms, the open country' will rise no higher than the aspirations of the people who live there and the problems must be solved in such way that they xim meat ue cuuuuuus "V"1:'' biplanes and monoplanes have contest on the spot.

We must all learn how to be better farmers; and a countryman cannot expect to have rurh influence on his time and commu nity until he makes his farm pay in dol lars and cents- , But the final, object in life is not to make money, but to use the money in developing a higher type of endeavor and a better society. The richest farm ing regions do not necessarily have the best society or even the best living con ditions Tlio Insufficiencies In Country Life. I asked recently why the farmers de sired to move to town. The answer was to secure gool school facilities, to es (a,.p bad roads and isolation, to have chjTch privileges and to be able to enjoy oclal advantages. In other words, tl e country life of the region was suc--C'essful only on its business side, and a satisfying rural society had not de- eo,ed The town was the center of i- -t The country was not suffi- j t .ent unto Itself as a permanent pfcee 1 of abode.

The model Is now - on exhibition in New York. The model is only two feet long, but it has flown on one explosion 35 feet in the air and 60 feet forward. The principle that lifts and drives the car is much the same as that which gov erns the rising of a skyrocket. No gas bag, planes or rudder are needed, though the above model carries two jud ders. The car is propelled and steered by rapid and powerful explosions against beds of compressed air. The principle is not unlike the gasoline en gine excepting that In this case there are no piston rods. The place of the piston rods is taken by a cushion of air at a pressure of 1200 pounds to the square inch. Knocloch says the car will make from 70 to 90 miles an hour.

The drout'h from which the west is now suf fering onty verifies what many acrricul turi3ts have expected for a long time," J said acting secretary of agriculture Hays today. "3fany of us knowing that tihe wea Eiad suffered 'from cycles of drouth, be lieved these cycles would again hamper the fanners there, but the period of many j'ears during which rainfall has been regular has caused people to for get the rearl conditions that have faced them." he continued. "The west is really a much better country than man1- agriculturists be lieved, but we must fnce the fact that these cycles of drouth will recur and farmers must finance their farms with a view of tiding over these periods of noii'productiveness."

MANY LOBBIES AT SPECIAL SESSION (Horace H. Shelton.) Austin, Texas, July 16. The advance guard of the members of the Texas leg islature are already gathering in Aus tin for the special session, which will open on Tuesday. Owing to resigna tions, there are a number of important chairmanships of committees vacant and those aspiring to get in the lime light by filling these positions are on the ground. The lobby is also showing up. The brewery and whisky Interests are not going to be caught napping, although the call says nothing in regard to the traffic. T,he impression seems to pre vail that governor Campbell has some thing up his sleeve and that a number of surprises will be sprung. The Texas Commercial secretaries, through J. A. Arnold, will also be on hand as the watch dog of the commer cial interests and the labor leaders will also have their legislative committee on hand. Insurance Revision. Although the specific call for the leg islature says that the purpose is to amend or repeal the new insurance law that is creating less interest than any other feature. The great possibilities of action either m regard to statewide prohibition through the enactment of a statute, or by forcing submission by calling a constitutional convention, is the center of all interest. The message of governor Campbell to the special session is being awaited with interest. All those who have ar rived in Austin are making a hard ef fort to get an inkling of what it will be, but so far the governor has put the Sphinx to shame for silence- It is gen- erally believed that his first message will deal solely with the insurance question and that, if he has any other plans in view for the legislature, they will be submitted In messages which will follow Still there may be a sur prise sprung right at the beginning of the session. Havfkins to Go. There is no doubt that the governor intends to get rid of insurance commis sioner Hawkins, but his plans on this point have not been announced, nor has he Indicated who will be the commis sioner's successor. As Hawkins's ap- v-kt- wm si- K-c -tv'- Vmir rrn iT-mor? , . ,,. . i, .,.4. . genera! uenei eea y' w.c iu governor will submit nis name with the understanding that the senate will not confirm the appointment, and this will leave the governor free to appoint whom he may desire. Another possibil- Ity is that the governor will Ignore the existance of Mr. Hawkins and suDmit the name of another person. Prohibition Possible. Those best informed, say that the governor will not act in regard tq any recommendation on the liquor traffic, until he ascertains whether or not Col quitt Is nominated. In case Colquitt is selected as the standard bearer of the party, the probable course of the gov ernor has been admirably outlined In an interview by state senator B. F. Looney of Greenville, who says: "While there Is serious diversity ot opinion among lawyers as to whether the legislature has the power under the present constitution to enact state wide prohibition, no one anywhere ques tions its power to regulate the traffic to the extent of abolishing drinking saloons, and to create zones around ed ucational institutions, within which the sale of intoxicating liquors may be ab solutely prohibited. "It Is my opinion that if Mr. Colquitt should be nominated and if the vote in dicates tliat he is the plurality nomi nee, the special session will probably be advised by the governor to abolish the saloon outright and to prohibit the sale of intoxicating liquors within a certain distance from certain institu tions, both within and without certain cities and towns. "Furthermore, If the submission of the constitutional amendment is again adopted by the people at the primaries, the special session will no doubt be urged to cill a constitutional conven tion in order ito propose and submit to the people the amendment demanded. This can be done by a majority vote. Constitutional Convention. "It nny be asked whether or not the legislature has the power to call a con- j ing to spread to the Blackfoot and Flat stitutional convention, and if so, wleth- I head forests. The failroads have 200 er it can limit the convention to the j consideration alone of the prohibition j question. I "In my opinion both of these suggest ed questions would be answered in the a.flrmatlve. There is no express provis ion In our constitution empowering the legislature to call a constitutional con vention, but there Is nothing expressly forbidding such action. "We have heretofore had three, con stitutional conventions called under similar circumstances to the one pro posed. ..Our present constitution was framed by a convention that -was called by a special session of the legislature in March, 1S75, the constitution of fContitiued on Page Twelve.

NEW POLITICAL SCHOOL COMING Kansas City, Mo., July 16 The or ganization of a new political party in the United States was denied here by Gifford PInchot at a meeting of the Knife and Fork club. Speaker Joseph, Cannon also attended the banquet and engaged in a debate with the deposed forester. Considerable attention was paid to the conservation muddle, and as to who is the father of conserrs. tlon. "J. W. Powell was the father of con servation," shouted the speaker durinff his talk. It was Powell, said Cannon, who appealed to him when he was chairman of the house committee of appropriations 4o do something: for con servation. Turning to Mr. PInchot, Mr. Canaon said: 'I have the greatest personal regard for you, but I understand that you ara now engaged in conservation work lor the organization of a new party." Can non shook hands with PInchot at th conclusion of his speech and apolo gized because he had to leave without hearing him. N In his speech, Mr. Pinchot said: "I believe a new school of politics is coming to the United States. This new school wlH decide whether tha country shall be governed by money for profit or by man for human -welfare. I made a speech In St. Paul re cently and in connection with that speech somebody mentioned the or ganization of a new party. Mr. Can non's reference to me in that connec tion doubtless is due o his having read some of the headlines at that time. The essential qnestions before the people now are outside of party lines. In look- ing. Qver the names ot those who voted for the Patyne-Aldrich tariff bill, I am led to believe that regular Republicans and regular Democrats are the same. No New Party.
