Despite Decision Declaring Kansas Measure Unconstitutional. Topeka, Kan., Aug. 21. The deci sion of Judge V. H. McCannish up holding a motion that the Kansas in dustrial relations' court act is uncon stitutional in the title," does not yet jeopardize the activities or legality of the court, according to Judge W. L. Huggins, presiding magistrate of the court. Members of the court and Attorney General R. J. Hopkins, who will appeal the Wyandotte county decision to the supreme court, expressed themselves as confident that the law as enacted will stand the acid test before the high court. Judge MeCamish contends that the title of the law itself "ia not geruinne to what Is expressed therein" relative to the criminal features of the court set. While the court in itself has no criminal jurisdiction, it is obligated bv the court act to have violators of aider the ratification of the federal th ,aw P1 in any court of suffrage amendment. Opponents thus lost their right to offer a motion to reconsider, but the suffrage forces planned to make such a motion to-day and then to table it, thus making im possible any further parliamentary tactics to reconsider the House s origi nal action. competent jurisdiction. This might be in either a state or federal court.

Various National Olympic Committees Want It - Abolished - AS A FEATURE OF THE CONTESTS The Classic Will Be Run . Off at Antwerp To-morrow Antwerp, 'Aug. 21. A determined movement has been begun among vari ous national Olympic committees to abolish the marathon race as the fea ture of future meetings. It is claimed that this race is not humane, and a pe tition to this effect will be presented to the international committee to night. Sponsors for the movement would substitute a 25,000-meter (about 15 miles) race. Arrangements have been completed for the marathon classic, which will be run off to-morrow. Members of the Bel gian Olympic committee sought to se cure a change in the rules so as to per mit runners to secure refreshments, such as light soup, during the great ordeal but the committee has ruled that the men will be permitted to receive only water. The route will be guarded by 500 Belgian soldiers and will be closed to all but official motor cars during the race. The seventh Olympic has entered its last stages, for, after the finals to-day in the 3,000-meter walk, the hop, step and jump, and throwing the 56-pound weight ,nd the finish of the decathlon competition, only five more stadium events and the marathon remain to be contested. The American team has al ready amassed a great deal in points scored and seems certain to maintain its advantage to the end. The American fencing team to-day beat England eight victories to seven in the dueling sword contest, but was beaten bv France 12 to two. In a train- ng match in water polo, the Brazilian team defeated, three to two. WAR TROPHIES DISTRIBUTED will stand the test and carried bv an overwhelming viva "ol,rt- rh P,nt 8t w 18 mPre voce vote.

Batum won this boon by the natural advantage of harbor, ranked as one of the best ia the world, despite the occasional torms that render its shelter treach erous. The city came to its industrial own when it pased from Turkish dominion to Russia hands In lft'S; but political troubles, even before the war bolts of 1914, sffected its commerce. Before the World wsr a movement had been launched to boom Batum as a health resort.

Castleton, Aug. 21. About 300 at tended the annual summer meeting of the Vermont Horticultural society here, held Wednesday at the MacRae orchard at the Corners. While horticultural experts were there from Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut to tell the members of the possibilities of apple production in Vprmont and New England the most eloquent appeal was that of the or chard itself. Its 12,000 trees of Mcin tosh reds, greenings and northern spies, many of them loaded until the limbs dragged on the ground, proved a revela tion to the visitors. It wss "open house" and they were gjven the run of the immense project. Luncheon was served on a shady knoll overlooking Lak Bomoseen, command ing a wide view of much of the orchard with the mountain in the far back ground, making a picture of striking! scenic beauty, combining the best na ture has to offer with the best man can produce. The scene of the luncheon and speaking took the visitors on a long drive through a large part of the or chard, something that in itself made the sessions notable. The rain of Wednesday morning did not deter the crowds and the afternoon session was held outdoors with ideal weather pre vailing. C. L. Witherel of Cornwall, president of the society, was presiding officer, with Professor M. B. Cummings of Burlington as secretary. The society, now 22 years old, has 400 members and cards were passed yesterday as part of a campaign for new members and many signed up on the grounds. Under the direction of Mr. MacRae, demonstrations in grafting and pruning were conducted st different spots in the orchard snd the party was then taken to the scene of the spraying and dust machine demonstration. These machines, drawn by a small tractor, gave the visitors a realistic exhibition of scientific methods. Near the house, a grading machine was shown. The practical demonstrations proved most popular and the visitors followed them with keen interest, asking many questions. Among the speakers of the afternoon were: George A. Drew, manager of the Conyers orchard of 40,000 trees at Greenwich, Conn.; H. C. C. Miles, as sistant secretary of the New England fruit show, Hartford, Conn.; Professor A. T.

Wherever one motors nowadays, all manner of things may be bought by the wayside, says the Christisn Science Monitor. Along the Massachusetts highways in midsummer, almost every farmhouse has its little stand out in front, sometimes sheltered by a more permanent wooden roof. A very sim pie sign may be marked with the sin pie word "asparagus" or "gooseberries." That is about all the advertising that seems necessary. On the stand are ar ranged, rather naively, perhaps, a few boxes of the fruit or vegetables. In the background, however, the people of the place, one may be sure, are busily gath ering a fresh supply in the garden. As the season advances, the strawberries are succeeded by the blueberries and the currants, and the asparagus gives way to the wax beans and the toma toes. Thus the wayside vending con tinues, from spring until the end of the apple time, to be a pleasing and attractive business wherever there are passable roads. In California one finds, of course, the oranges, the lemons and the fresh figs; and between Massachu setts and California a motoring party I would encounter a very considerable range of things to buy. With the immense multiplication of automobiles it ia inevitable that the possibilities of the business will con stantly be developed. Already many other commodities than things to eat are thus displayed. Flowers, from the violets and Mayflowers to the chrys anthemums, are almost ss plentiful on the stands as fruits. Then there are all sorts of plants, with here and there a sign that reads "Bedding for plants." Even nurseries of trees put out their signs, though not many a picnic party, perhaps, will wish to carry home a young tree from the country. Still one is not necessarily expected to carry home every sort of thing that is thus sold by the wayside. Here and there a farmhouse or an estate advertises it self for sale; and oftentimes a real es tate company opens a very active little branch office conveniently by the high way in a region where houses or apart ments are being built. Of things that can be carried home in the automobile, one must not forget the famous toy windmills of Cape Cod. There, too, one farmhouse has as its sign "Little pigs for sale," W hether they are to be car ried in the car or not, or where they are to be put when one arrives at one's apartment, is not stated. Much of this business activity began, probably, when the farmers first put in their own little gasoline stations. When the earlier motorists were continually finding themselves in need of gasoline, and seeking aid at the nearest farm houses, it would naturally occur to those farmers that it might be well to put in regular gasoline stations. One thing, then, led to another. A motomt mnnot stop at a farmhouse without glancing about him. When he sees fresh eggs in the kitchen, or interrupts the housewife in her putting up of jellies and jams, he is naturally in clined to make a purchase. Farmers and their wives are not averse to self ing almost anything, for a sufficient consideration; so, as these wayside en terprises spread still more throughout the country, the congestion of business in the cities may be somewhat dimin ished, especially when everyone, from bootblack to millionaire, has his own car. All this greater flexibility of transportation means much to the country districts. One wonders, how ever, how roadside selling will be ad justed to the aeroplane, when aero planing becomes half as common a motoring is now, or as bicycling was two. decades ago.
