EXJO KILLS TKEES.
. Orchards ia Kentucky Destroyed by ' Strange Insect. Glasgow, ky., May 27. From all over this and adjoining counties comes the complaint of an insect which is destroying: the fruit trees. Hardly an. apple tree can be found within a radius of fifty miles that is not affected more or less by the plague, and so alarming has the situation become that farmers and fruit growers are at a loss to know what course is best to pursue Bunches of dead leaves can be seen all over the trees, and an examine tion revealed that the twig several inches down the limb is dead, hav ing the appearance of being scorched. Some farmers have adopted spraying, but as yet no visible results have been obtained. J. T. Larue, who lives near Hodgenville, claims that he has discovered a strange insect on his trees. It is Smaller than the head of a pin and about the color of an orange. Friday afternoon, so he claims, there was no sign of an in sect on a certain' tree and on the Mowing morning the tree was i, having been killed during inight by the insects, which red the tree in thousands. trees standing near by were igly not affected by the in- I hough he has already lost .trees and has no hope now uFeisAag any of his orchard. He says the trees have the appearance of having passed through a fire Extensive inquiry has failed so far to find anyone who knows anything of the insect. Unless something can be done, and that at once, to check the rav ages of these pests, the present apple and peach crop will be ruined, as well as the trees. Great damage has already been done the crop and trees also. If you are interested in larm or timbered land you will do well to call on W. R. Beasley, of Greenway, Ark., tbe real estate man. 1 1 1 1 1 J tured by Spanish soldiers at point near where Trinidad, Col now stands. Had Pike not been a soldier be doubtless would have remainec with the venturesome spirits con stituting the earliest pioneers in the West. Even his dramatic death, a General at the ago of 34 leading tbe American forces in an attack upon the British at York Canada, does not overshadow his achievements in blazinsr the first trail to . the Rockies. His life was governed by the messages to his son that were found on bis body. "Preserve vour honor free from blemish" and "Be always ready to die for vour country, he wrote for tbe as f boy's guidance in life, his own ca reer exemplifying both. PIKE'S PEAK CENTENARY. Colorado to Celebrate the Hundreth Anniversary of Its Discovery Zebulon Montgomery Pike dis covered the peak in tbe Rockies which bears his name Nov. 15, 1806. In the fall of this year the people of Colorado will celebrate the 100th anniversary of this discovery at Colorado Springs. The celebra tion will be in tbe last week in September, that month having been selected because weather con ditions will be more attractive attractive than later. Western people see a peculiar fitness in tbe proposed celeoration The peak is considered typical of the country and the people sur rounding it. It recalls generations of courageous pioneers who' set tled a territory offering stubborn resistance to the advance of civili zation. Zebulon Pike and his associate explorers conquered in spite of hardships. With a handful of fel low travelers he started from St. Louis July 15, 1S06, for the un known lands of the West. Savage tribes of Indians roamed the plains, warring on the whites and against one another. It was four months after the start was made that the great white peak was sighted and twelve days later the base was reached. On reaching the mountains storms, were encountered and food became scarce. The clothing of the men was worn to shreds. It was inadequate to keep out tbe freezing air. When Pike and three of ,his men climbed an adjoining mountain to view the peak they were clad in overalls, without underclothing or stockings. Their boots were worn through, admit ting freely the snow and fctoues. Snow Qn top of the mountain was four feet deep and the tem perature was six degrees below zero. The, climb occupied two days, the intervening night being spent in a cave, without food or water. After this experience came oth ers equally trying. The little party wa9 finally cap- DIFFERINO WITH PRESIDENT Because a majority of tbe Senate Coirmittee decided to recommend that a sea level instead of a lock canal be built on the isthmus, the thick-and-thin, cut and-dried, fair- weather and storm partisans o f President Roosevelt rush to center stage and cry aloud that a system atic effort is being made in the Senate to delay if not to destroy the canal project. The attitude is characteristic of the Administra tion contingent. To differ from the President is to them a deadly sin. It not only proves that the dissenter is a degraded person in the pay of the enemy, but is in danger of eternal fire after death There is no word in the Decalogue forbidding opposition to Theodore Roosevelt's will, it is true, but that matters little. To favor sea-level canal when the President desires a lock canal is to put one beyond the hope of redemption. Only a sinister motive could prompt such a preference. Calm judg ment is discredited if it shall move contrary to the judgment of the present Executive. To the aver ago man not under the hypnotic spell of the President the ulterior motive hinted at by those who are is not apparent. The report drawn by the committee seemed honest an d reasonable enough. Why should these Senators wish to delay or to destroy- the canal project! If any member of the Senate is striving to block the game, will the Administration kindly point him out? Who is he? Where is he? Why does be? Courier Journal.
