The state of Minnesota will en
deavor to collect an inheritance tax
from the estate of the late E. H. Har

thirty others admitted to probate

Simpson is elated over his success in
the settlement made by the Kennedy

The state supreme court declares
that Mrs. Emma Ledbeter of Mankato
cannot be placed on trial for a second
time and judgment will be entered In

TO WATCH A PLANT GROW.
Experiments to Show if It Can Be Re
vealed by Moving Pictures.
Dr. Henry Leffman of Philadelphia,
"Inventor, chemist and physician, has
become interested in moving pictar.es
and now is experimenting in his lab
oratory to get a series of pictures of a
growing plant covering a period of
seven days, which, when thrown on
the screen by the moving picture ma
chine, will show the development of
the plant from a bud until it is full
grown. By reversing his string of
pictures a fantastic picture of a full
grown plant shriveling into a small
bud is made.
In his experiments Dr. Leffman is
trying to produce a picture of the
workings of nature too slow for the
human eye to catch. For this he is
using the pictures of a growing plant.
The other thing that Dr. Leffman is
working for is to get individual pic
tures of the workings of nature too
rapid for the human eye to catch.
For instance, in watching an explosion
the eye gets a composite picture of
smoke and air filled with flying debris.
With his moving picture camera, which
takes pictures at the rate of twelve in
one second, Dr. Leffman is able to get
the development of the explosion from
the first little puff of smoke until the
gases causing the trouble explode. By
running these pictures in his machine
at the usual «rate of speed the com
posite picture that the eye sees is
shown. By running his film slowly
through the machine each step in the
explosion, too rapid for the naked eye,

Chicago Storekeepers Want to Prevent
Return of Goods After Being Used.
Chicago department stores have de
cided to stop the buying of opera
cloaks and party dresses "on approv
al," to be worn once or twice and then
returned as "unsatisfactory." A gen
eral campaign with this end in view
is to be begun, it was learned recent
ly, following the announcement that
one department store has adopted a
patent device intended to reduce these
abuses. The device is a glaring red
tag about two inches wide and four
inches long On it is printed in large
black letters the statement:
"This article will not be accepted if
this ticket is detached."
But instead of having the tag tied
to the article, it is attached in a con
spicuous place by a lead seal similar
to those used to close mail bags and
money bags. The only way to get
the tag off is to cut the string.

CLARK ATTACKS TARIFF LAW
Minority Leader in House Assails
Washington, May 22.—Denouncing
the Payne-Aldrich tariff as a "trans
parent humbug," attacking the tariff
views of its author, Representative
Sereno Payne (Rep., N. Y.) and vig
orously assailing President Taft for
his support of that law, Representa
tive Champ Clark of Missouri, leader
of the Democratic minority, delivered
in the house what is regarded as the
Democratic keynote speech of the
coming congressional campaign. Mr.
Clark had prepared his address with
great care and spoke at length, giving
facts and figures in support of his con
tention that the tariff had not been
honestly revised and that the Repub
lican majority in congress had en
deavored to trick the people. Mr.
Clark also paid his respect incidental
ly to the $250,000 item in the sundry
civil appropriation bill for the crea
tion of a tariff board.
