ROME, Feb. 24.—tt is the intention of the pope to equip the Vatican ob servatory with the M&coni system of wireless telegraph, and it is known that only recently Pius X. sent word to Marconi that a visit from him would be very acceptable. Pius X. besides being much inte rested in all recene telegraphic inven tions, is an enthusiasts in photography so much that since h ! s accession he has posed hundreds of times, nor only for professionals, but even for amateurs. He also recently ordered linotype machines for the Vatican printing office. He was much surprised to learn of the efficiency of the ma chine and of the fact that such an improvement had not been adopted long ago in the Vatican printing of fice. The latest study taken up by Pius X. is that of the automobile. Several companies had offered to give him costly machines of their own make, but Pius X. refused to lend his name for advertising purposes and gave an order to a Milan factory for two of the latest type for his personal use in the Vatican gardens. Since his election, Pius X. has in stalled a new dynamo for the lighting of the Vatican palace and St. Peters on solemn occasions. When the fes tivities in honor of the Immaculate Conception took place last December myriads of electric lamps were placed in the great basilica, and the effect was reported as simply bewildering. RACE HATRED IN COUNTRY. While Bay State Farmers Bar Jews, Nashville Fights Negro Schools. PITTS FIELD, Mass., Feb. 24—Far mers in the town of Sandersfield, in the southeast end of Berkshire county, held a meeting the other day to de termine what could be done to stop the invasion of Jews. They signed an agreement not to sell their farms with out first calling a meeting of the American farmers and offering their land for what the Jews will give. The Jewish colony has bought up land all about that town, and now numbers nearly 100 persons. At first the appearance of Jews did not ex cite any unrest. They obtained op tions on poor farms, and bought them at a low figure! Others followed, and one by one better places were male over to Jewish owners. They or ganized schools, built a synagogue, and the colony continued to grow. Where the American farmers had given their attention to tilling the soil, the Jews turned to farming on an other and more profitable line. They began raising poultry, which was shipped on the community plan to New- York. They bought their supplies in large quantities in New York. This gave shopkeepers offense and the agi tation began. So strong has grown the feeling that Jews now have to buy their farms through real estate dealers in Winsted and Great Barrington. Would Bar Negro School. NASHVILLE, Term., Feb. 24.— Agents acting for Mother Catherine Drexel, founder of the Order of the Blessed Sacrament, have bought Mile End, the home of S. J. Keith, in this city, for $25,000 for use as a school for negro girls. Neither Keith nor the public knew Mother Drexel, of the Catholic church, in the transaction, the agents withholding the name of the purchaser until the deed' passed. When the purpose of the purchase became known there was great indig nation among the fashionable neigh bors of Mr. Keith, and open threats were made that th% property should never be so used. Mr. Keith also was indignant. He wrote to Bishop Bryne. of this diocese, tend Mother Drexel, begging to be allowed to take the property back and pay agent's com missions. He also offered to contrib ute $2500 to the church, if it would use the home for another purpose than schooling negroes. The city has a grant allowing it to, run a street right* through the house and citizens say they will insist on the city condemning the property anl opening the street. Mother Drexel is of the famous Phil adelphia family fit that name. New stock Doors and Windows at .lent Lumber Co. CONVICT NELSON MISSING MAIL CARRIER AT PEN FAILED TO SHOW UP AT THE REG ULAR TIME. Guards and Officers Looking for Miss ing Convict —Sent Up From 0 Snohomish. Thomas Nelson, convict No. 2905. and for several months acting as mail carrier between the penitentiary and the city, decamped last night. Nelson came to the city on his regular trip last evening and when he failed to re port at the prison at his regular time Warden Kees immediately sent out guards to search for the missing con vict and notjped the police and sheriff's office to keep a lookout for him. Trains leaving the city last night were closely watched, but Nel son was not among the passengers boarding them. Nelson was received at the peniten tiary December 27, 1902, frem Snoho mish county to serve a sentence of live years for assault with intent to commit robbery.

W. A. CLARK IS A BILLIONAIRE. Arizona Man Says Wealth In Senator's Mines Is Fabulous. Senator "William Ai Clark of Mon tana is a billionaire, the richest man in the world, according to Major W. A. Mensch of Kingman, Ariz., who was interviewed by a Chicago Chronicle reporter. Major Mensch is the United States weather prophet at Kingman, and on the side a mineral prospector and expert. Said he: "Senator Clark in the Ver de mines certainly has a billion in sight. The wealth there is fabulo,us. Other mines in Arizona, I believe, will turn out as rich. Arizona in 10 years will have outstripped Colorado as a gold and silver producer. The great mineral belt which extends from Mount Shasta in northern California to Sono ra, Mexico, runs through Arizona, and is the richest lode in the world. "Nor are the precious metals the only thing. There are veins of valu able iron, copper, lead and manga nese. Although not much coal is at present iv sight, it is said that the new- Salt Lake City-Los road w-ili open up extensive coal fields. The railway will prove a great boon to the whole southwest. The distance from Salt Lake to San Pedro on the Pacific by the new line is not more than the distance from Salt Lake to San Fran cisco. Consequently the new road will not only flguie as a local road, but as a thorough route." I PEOPLE ON THE MOVE f L. W. White, traveling salesman foi the Sanborn Vaile company of Port land, and one of the most popular drummers making Waila Walla, is in the city on his regular trip. Mr. White was in the Boise country last week stopping over at Pendleton enroute to Walla Walla. "Boise is rather quiet just at present, although there is every prospect of a fine spring trade,'" Mr. White said this morning. "Boise expects a big rush into the Thunder mountain district as soon as the trails are clear of snow. As most of the supplies shipped into this famous min ing district are purchased in Boise tms branch of business has reached enormous proportions. Within the : neat two years the Thunder mountain district- will begin to produce. Just at the present time it is a poor place for a poor man unless he is just merely prospecting. Most of the good prop erties uncovered require developing and it takes capital to do this. As soon as a railroad is built into that section Thunder mountain will be come one of the best mining sections in the Northwest. "People with an idea that Dayton is a slow town will have this delusion dispelled by taking a trip to that bust ling little town," said U. G. Bean, who returned from that place last evening. Mr. Bean is heavily interested in a fine furniture and furnishing business In Dayton and reports that trade is very good with a prospect of a fine spring and summer business. "There are any number of nice residences un der construction and prospects of sev eral business blocks going up this year." Asked as to the damage to wheat during the late cold wave Mr. Bean said that farmers are not pre pared to make an estimate, although the damage will not be so great as was first supposed. In some localities farmers will probably be compelled to reseed to spring wheat but as they are all well fixed financially the loss will not cause any hardship. "I find that cattle are being pretty well shipped out of the Hudson Bay and Touchet countries," said H. H. Augustavo yesterday after a trip to the Augustavo feed yards located near Hudson Bay. "Outside markets have drawn heav ily on Valley cattle this winter and as a consequence I look for a jump in the price of stock on foot. We pave nearly 200 head of prime beef steers on hand that we are feeding. They have win tered well." Mr. Augustavo predicts that if the present warm weather con tinues for any length of time that the range will be in fine condition. Young grass is already showing on the hill sides.

CATCH MAN IN DEATH TRAP. Paralyzed at His Danger He Allows Himself to be Run Down. NEW YORK, Feb. 24.—Spellbound to find himself in the path of two ra cing automobiles, an unidentified man stood rooted the spot while one of the ponderous cars ran over him at Broadway and Forty-seventh street yesterday afternoon.

SCHOOL BOOKS CURVE SPINE. Increase of Deformity Among Young Charged to Carrying Books. NEW YORK, Feb. 24.—Curvature of I the spine among school children Is i largely the result of carrying daily to ;an l from school heavy loads of books, j according to Dr. Luther Halsey Ou | lick, director of physical training for ! the department of education. "In view of the large number of |cases of curvature of the spine, and jof the fact that these arise largely i during the grammar school year, f have made a preliminary inquiry Into one of the possible factors in the case, namely, the carrying of books of con siderable weight daily to and from school. "My tentative conclusions are that owing to the fact that grammar school years are the ones in which the spine is having its full growth and development, it is peculiarly suscepti ble to any constant tendency away from the normal, and that the con stant carrying of from to nine pounds of books for periods varying from ten minutes to half an hfcur daily is sufficient to be a somewhat serious factor in the promotion of curvature of the spine. "The remedies that occur to me are to limit the practice of having books taken to and from school, twice a day and to limit to each trip the ones that will be used In the following ses sion; to restrain the children from carrying home unnecessary materials; to extend the practice of carrying books in knapsacks."
