DEATH IN . THE RACE Two Killed at Des Moines Saturday, Another May Die " s De PALMER WINS BY A HAIR Cooper and Keeler Dead, ' Chandler Thought Mor tally Hurt Pes Moines, la., Aug.'O.-Two killed and another injured, probably fatally, marked the initial 300-mile automobile derby on the new mile speedway here Saturday afternoon. Ralph De Palma was winner, Ralph Mulford second and Eddie O'Donnell third. .The time was 3 28 52. Joe Cooper was killed on the 38th lap of the rare, when his tar sailed over the outer edge of the bowl as he wag nearing the grandstand ana Te.H ouwio.e with Cooper and his mechanician, Louis Pinl. ninne.d underneath the wreckage, The second accident came near the close of the race when, in the ,238th lap, Billy Chandler's car crashed against the inside ait utmost onDOsite the point where CooDer had met his death. Morris S. Keeler, Chandler's mechani cian, was eaid to be in the more serious condition of the two, and at the hospital bis death occurred at 0 p. m. Chandler has less than an even chance for recov erv. according to the physicians. Piel, a victim of the first accident, was also reported to be in a critical condition, with prospects poorer than the others. Cooper's skull was crushed in the first accident ana ms aeam whs ihuuuj m stantaneous. Chandler went into con rulsions while being taken to the hos pita!, where it was found that he suf fered a broken left hip and internal in juries. In both accidents, tire blowouts were ascribed as the cause, although in the case of Cooper a broken steering knuckle was said to have been the immediate reason for his loss of control. After striking outside the track the car crashed into the end of the grandstand, unciaii said Cooper was going 100 miles an hour. The race itself was full of thrills, aside from its tragic features. For most of the 300 miles it was nip and tuck be tween De Talma. Mulford and O'Don nell, the former keeping the lead most of the time. In the last 15 miles, how ever, he developed a run of bad luck with his 'tires which threatened to lose him first place, but he forged ahead in the last three miles and crossed ahead of Mulford. So close were the two leaders that the judges for several minutes were divided as to who had won. The first announcement was that Mulford was the Tictor, but this was changed and the official announcement gave De Pal ma the prize. MARKETING OF FARM TIMBER. Forest Service Saya Ignorance of Wood lot Course Often Costs Dearly. The marketing of farm timber pre sents some of the same difficulties, but in an aggravated form, that the farmer meets in selling other crops, says a for est service contribution to the Year liook of the department of agriculture, just issued. The farmer finds it hard to get enough for his timber. Most farmers now sell their .saw timber on the stump to a mill man, such sales ordinarily being made for a lump sum. The mill' man. experienced in estimating, goes through the woods ajd sires up the quantity and value of the timber he want. The owner, being a farmer and not a lumberman, seldom knows any thing about estimating timber and has oniy the vaguest idea of what it ought to bring. The consequence of this con dition is that the farmer often receives only a small fraction of the actual mar ket value of hi stumpsge. Astonishing examples of what a farm er may thus throw away are often en countered by foresters, continues the ar ticle. For instance, a Massachusetts farmer sold a million feet of timber to portable sawmill man for $1 and thought be had obtained a good price. Hi neighbor, however, who knew some thing about timber, got 7,H for the same qusntity of hite pine frm the veiy name portable man. 1 be first farmer, on account of bis ignorance, practically presented the mill man with .V$,t; the second o m-r was wise enough to learn before be attempted to II his timber how mm.-U be bd anj what it ought to bring Inm in money. The productive rapacity of the ;TiiO million acres of farm lands throughout the country which either bve or slioitld have tiir.twT growing on them is enor mous, says tle artwle. This area is larger thsa all the national forests put t"t--t Iict. and with an annual proath of 2"0 hoard feet per acre rf saw timber a moderate s;i"srv nndir the prac tice of forestry- it would prod'K an nually forever sbmit 40 bilhon fw-t. r the equivalent f the entire lumUr cut ? the country, in ad-litm to m-i b than 12 mi.Jion cords f firewood.

There was a fine field of starters in the 2:33 class, and favorite horse were started for the other cards, the 2:24 class pacing, and the free-for-all event. After getting away with a bad start in the first heat, Peter Directum finished a bad sixth, but proved his mettle by taking straight heat. The 2:35 class was the only mixed race, the other events finishing in straight heats. Riley A got first mon ey in the 2:24 class, with Major Deen second and third positions. There were and Syllable finishing consistently in some interesting brushes, however, and the O'Clair horse by no means had a smooth course to travel. Interest naturally centered around the free-for-all card, and the best time of the afternoon was made when Betty Deen completed the mile in 2:15 m the first heat. The Deen horse was easily the favorite and justified the high hopes of her , backers. Positions two, threo and four were consistently accept ed by Othello, Alcy YVilkes, and Gott Ett. The Lillie horse's tendency to slack en after leaving the back stretch was noticeable in three heat. Othello justi fied the expectations of most of its ad mirers by keeping pretty tight to the heels of the Magnaghi and Pinardi pacer. although it must be conceded that the Deen horse was never closely pressed and seemed to be chock full of spurts when SDUrts were necessary. F. K. Kittridge, the veteran YY'oodsviile driver, got a big hand from the grandstand when he ap peared on the track with Alcy YY'ilke. Between heat, Dr. J. G. Whitney of Montpelier drove his Hector King (by Locander 2:02) an exhibition mile in 2:2. At the last moment, the doctor decided not to go against any particular mark, and the turn around the course was purely an exhibition. The horse were not harassed by heavy track conditions, and" the weather was ideally tiited to the initial meet of the new club. Racing lane came irom a distance, and measured by any standard the afternoon card wa a moving uc ces. It is to be hoped that more meet may be held at the park belore the ea son ends. John E. Hoban acted as starter, and the judges were: John Trow, G. A. Moo)v of YY'aterbury, and John Devlin of Montpelier. Frank Robinson acted a clerk of the course. The officer of the club had charge of the arrangement for the meet. They arei President, H. C, Leonard of Barre; secretary, Harry YYr. Britton of Barre j treasurer, D. K. Lillie of Montpelier.

I remember of writing something about a street carnival in one of my letter from the Middle YVcst where one of the main streets of the city was blocked by the pageant so we could not get near the postofflce with our auto to get our expected man. mien a 'carnival is takintr nlace here in Ktock- ton this week, blockading a whole street (Canal street for half a mile. Jt is not a local city show, but a traveling concern Boinc from place to since, the same as s circus in the ICast, and drawing large crowd. It is a good deal like tne "none at the San Francisco fair. YVe have made trins bv auto into the country in all di rectiona the last few day. Have visited several moving picture how. There are probably 20 or more in continuous opera tion from 2 d. m. till 11 P. m. in this citv. Admission, five cents mostly; some are 10 cents. One fare admits 10 me whole nine hours' show, if you stay in side. Aug. 2, 1915. YVe are still here at Stockton and Dix and his family have not arrived from Knowles vet. but we cot a letter from them, written at Livermore, saying they were on their way to Knowles, and would probably be here about Aug. 2 or 3. Clarence said that, as I had visited a brewery and beer bottling establishment, I ought to visit a winery, o I visited one of the largest wineries, just outside the city. Of course it was not in opera tion just now) excepting in ripening the wine now on hand, which tney said was over 2,000,000 gallons, mostly stored in wooden tanks, averaging in size, or noia insr. over 2,000 cations each. Their sea son for working the grapes into wine is about the same as our season in Ver mont for making apple cider and lasts only about as long, but their method of making is different. Most of the wine grapes are brought in by train and trainloads, from 10 to 50 cars at a time, and pitched directly from cars to crusher and the pulp pumped directly into storage tanks, where it is allowed to ferment about a week. Then it is drawn out by a spiral screw and run through ptesses similar to large clothes wringers, the pulp passing away out of doors on an endless belt and the juice pumped into the ripening vats or tubs. Their shipping season lias just com menced, the shipping being done mostly in tank cars similar to the Standard Oil tank cars. So the wine mostly goes out as the grapes came in, not in carloads, but in trainloads, and the price which it is sold for here is scarcely more than for cider (sweet cider) in Yrermont during cider-making time five cents per gallon, or 10 cents after ripening. Considerable difference, J guess, Irora the prices paid for the same in Xew England. They said most of their wine was sold in train- load lots, sent to New Y'ork or Chicago. Ever since I arrived here at the coast I have been studying the Chinese and Jap anese question. For over a century thi government allowed the people from any nation on earth to come and live here and to become citisens, provided they appeared to be self-supporting when they arrived here. Then Congress, tinder the influence of labor leaders, most of them unscruplou and themselves of foreign birth, passed a law forbidding any more Chinese to land in this country. YVhat was the result? Thousands have come here and been sent back, thi government paying the cost of their return to China, and the average cost to the government of every Chinese o returned was in the vicinity of 11,000, Fat Job for a good many United State officer. To-day I find no one here in California who ob jects to the Chinese being here. They are very industrious and make the best of cituens. The merchants here say they ell more good on trust to Chi nese and Japanese than any other people and never lose a dollar. The merchants' trouble with the Japanese is that they are shrewd traders or business men and soon acquire the business and ran under sell other merchants and still make mon ey at it when other would fail. I spoke in another letter of visiting the Chinese section of the city of San Francisco and finding it on of the best sections of the city. It is the same here in Stockton, and they are some of the most industriou mind your-business peo ple I have seen. If we bad a few hun dred thousand of them on our farms in the Esst, the value of our real estte would double in five year. The whole of the farming country east of the Rocky mountain i short of efficient hired help. RemedyLet (ongres rescind the Chi nee exclusion act and ave thi country the cost of enforcing it and bring in a class of people who will in the future mike good citizens. As I said before, the onl v objection I find from the people here is tl.at the Japanese are too enterpriaine. That i the kind of people that California needs to day. They have plenty of the other kind. This section of California seems to be overrun with either tramps or people seeking work. The people here say they are nearly all tramp, and are not seek ing work. This section of California has climate in which the tramp can sleep out of doors the year round. Hay er straw st ark a, which thev find here bv the million, make them good beds. Plenty of fruit and tegrtabira that they can wipe at any time of the year. That snakes Cel.fomia an ideal home for tramp. They aay they do very little actual begging here. They don't seem to find it necessary. Y eatTday eiht of a went to a baket ptcaic about 1 mile north of bere witk our antoa.
