" Congress last year created Grater Lake National park in Oregon. Within the 249 square miles embraced by this j park there are as many natural won i ders of mountains, snow clad peaks, forests, plains and streams as are to be ' found in any similar area of the ,' west Though comparatively unknown, , the new 'park possesses many natural distinctions that may make it a rival of the Yellowstone, says a dispatch from ' Grant's Pass, Ore. ' The lake and its surrounding won ders, comprising the new park, are lo ; rated on the range of the Cascade moun- tains, northwest Klamath county and eighty miles from the. railroad. A spur 'line is being built from the Southern Pacific Into that part of Oregon and Will ultimately reach the park. . .. The present method of reaching Cra-' ter lake is by team. . Traveling up the. Rogue from the railroad, one finds the valley narrowing and the farmhouses lessening, while the river grows swifter, the forests grow denser and the moun tains more rugged. At a ( distance of fifty miles from the valley the Rogue narrows to a width of seventy-five feet and flows with great rapidity through , a deep gorge. Here the river has an I average fall of 200 feet to the mile. Great columns or pyramids of cement rise from the bottom of the gorge. . i These columns are forty to fifty feet through at the base and attain a height Icf a hundred and more feet. These strange formations were composed of ' a harder substance than that which surrounded them and did not yield so readily to the action of the water as Ut cuts Its way deeper and deeper into the gorge. : v When within twelve miles of the lake evidences of volcanic action are seen along the Rogue. These are a silent re- minder of the time when Mount Maza j ma, then the greatest mountain of the Cascades, threw forth volumes of fire, t smoke and lava. Then the day came when the great volcano had spent its energy, and its fires died out The 'crater cooled and filled with water, 'forming a lake .of . match es.s Jbsauty.

In the early days the Indians viewed Crater lake and its surround ings as holy ground and approached it with reverence. To them it is one of the spots made sacred by the presence of the Great - Spirit. None but medi cine men visited it and when one of a tribe felt called upon to become a teacher and healer he spent several weeks on the shore of the lake fasting with the dead and in prayer to the Shahullah Tyee, The shores of Crater lake are precip itous and rugged, towering at many points to a height of 2,000 feet above the water. The water's edge can only be reached by a few narrow, winding trails. The expanse of the lake is un broken save by Wizard island, a cone shaped mountain that rises 800 feet above the surface near the western shore. Wizard island was the last smoking chimney of the volcano. The water of the lake Is cold, clear and pure as the melted snowdrops of the surrounding , peaks can make it. There are no fish save some placed there in recent years, and the scarcity of vegetation will make it hard for these to survive. Over the deep blue expanse and its surrounding solitudes reigns a silence that borders on the sublime. It is but little wonder that the savage red man believed the Great Spirit slept in the bosom of Crater lake. STRAUSS' POINTED REMARK. Incident on Steamer That Depleted ,, Composer 'a Sense of Homer. An ; incident which occurred in the smoking room of the Hamburg-American liner Moltke on the first night out from Cherbourg and which created no Inconsiderable amusement among the passengers served to prove that Rich ard Strauss, the composer and con ductor, who arrived in the United States recently, has a keen sense of humor. The musician was seated at a table with Poultney BJgelow, listening to a discourse on continental versus American architecture delivered with no little warmth by a young architect of New York city, when Henry Wil liams, head lion tamer for Carl Hagen beck, entered the room. "I have come," Mr. Williams began, "to beard the lions in their den." "He means you," the architect said, laughing at the evident discomfiture of bis companions. ' For a minute there was stillness in the smoking room. Then Herr Strauss, addressing the lion tamer, remarked pointedly: "You would better begin on this cub here," pointing to the young architect. "You'll find' him much easier to han-' die" New York limes. been made tinder his pcr- supervision since its infancy. Signature of BOLL WEEVIL PROBLEM. Department of Asrlcalture's Direc tion to Destroy the Pet. The department of agriculture has Issued a bulletin giving directions -for the eradication of the boll weevil, says a Washington special to the St. Louis Republic. The bulletin says: "The earlier investigations oi the di vision of entomology and its work the past season warrant the recommenda tion of the following methods of less ening the boll weevil injury: "Plant; an early maturing variety of cotton as early as possible in the spring and give the plants good culti vation. By good cultivation is meant five of six plowings, with three or four choppings. By plwwing and cultivating in this way a good ci.p may usually be insured before the bollworms be come destructive in August. In the territory infested with the cotton boll weevil this course becomes doubly necessary, as it is only by such meth ods that ordinarily a crop of cotton may be made. "The possibility of the plants devel oping a crop after the boll worms may leave is removed on account of the presence of the weevil. Early planting of early mrtturing varieties will also allow of the crop being gathered much earlier in the fall than is possible with the plantings of ordinary gin seed at the usual time. "It will thus become possible to a considerable extent to clear the land of the plants and plow in the fall, which, aside from being good farm practice, will exert a very beneficial influence in controlling the bbllworms by breaking open their hibernation cells and exposing the pupae to the in fluences of cold and rain during the winter. "Experiments with poisons the past year indicate that these may be profit ably used in lessening bollworm in Jury to cotton. The poisons should be applied to the plants in time to insure the destruction of the maximum num ber of young larvae of the August gen eration. In general- this will be about Aug. 1. "When it Is noticed that the moths are becoming abundant in the cotton fields the first application should be made, and a second application should follow the first week or ten days later. The occurrence of even a moderate rain shortly after the poison has been applied will necessitate another appli cation if best results are to tie se cured," SIMPLICITY OF THE POPE. How He Once Prepared Coffee For m. Onet With His Own Hands, William J. D. Croke in his "Anec dotes of the New Pepe,""pubtished in the Century Magazine for March, tells the following ariecdote about Pius X. before he was elected to his high of fice: One morning early a friend of mine, a Venetian nobleman, called on him. Mgr. Sort had . said mass and settled down to work. His sisters had gone out to mass or for the household mar keting, which they were doing at the Rialto on Aug. 4, 1903, the day of wonders in their simple life. "Has the count taken coffee?" asked the bishop. "Well, to tell the truth, no, because the business was urgent, and I have come straight from the railway sta tion," the guest replied. No excuse availed, and Mgr. Sarto rose and went into the kitchen. So the bishop of ducal Mantua and his guest might have been seen there talk ing and laughing, while monsignore coaxed the charcoal with a black kitchen fan, the coffee llzzed In a tin pot on the range, and the i count got cups and saucers in order to save his distinguished host what menial service he could. Then they had coffee to gether at the kitchen table. A Care For llloconffh. Frank Green, a .student in the life class of drawing at the Trenton School of Industrial Art, suffered with hic cough for three days, says a Trenton (N. J.) dispatch. A physician tried ev ery known remedy without relief. Fi nally a friend suggested the use of elec tricity, and a light current was applied to Green's body. An improvement was noted, and the strength of the current was increased. Finally his hiccoughing ceased, and the cure was complete. Roll Call In Korea.. Slowly died the last red sunbeam, slowly came the hush of night Where the moon illumined stronghold of the bearded Muscovite Broke'the landscape's rolling contour in a fair Korean vale; Many a warrior's heart was heavy, many a warrior's cheek was pale.

Robert E. Speer Says Japan Need Korea a a Commercial Outlet and SIiottb How It Has Become a Necei alty to Rasala Korea's Relations With ' China and Japan Reasons For the War. Robert E. Speer, lately a resident of Seoul, Korea, describes in the World's Work for March the relations of fKo rea with China, Japan and Russia, also the reasons for the present war, as. follows: In contending against Russia for what she regards as her Just interests in Ko rea, Japan is opening no new issue and advancing no fresh claim. Centuries before the Russian nation .came into ex istence Japan and Korea were in inti mate relationship, and the island em pire regarded the neighboring peninsu la as her proper field of Influence. Kar ly in the third century the queen of Japan invaded the southern kingdoms of Korea, subdued them and wrote on the king's gate, 'The king of Shinra is the dog of Japan." Until the tenth cen tury southern Korea paid tribute to Ja pan and not only paid tribute, but also poured into Japan the tide of Chinese civilization Chinese philosophy, Confu cian morals and Chinese literature. In the middle of the fourteenth cen tury Korea came under Chinese vassal age, and "the present ; dynasty was es tablished on the throne. This ended the old relations between southern Ko rea and Japan, and thenceforth Korea became the middle ground between Ja pan and China, their common place of meeting and conflict In the six centuries which have' elapsed since China became the suzer ain of Keorea there have been repeated attempts by Japan to subjugate the peninsula, and she has probably never in all these years abandoned the de sign of detaching the kingdom from China and attaching it to herself. The war with China was no accident or avoidable struggle, but a step prepared for and contemplated for centuries and never lost sight of in all the changes through which Japan has passed to ward a continental enlargement of her empire. ' When Japan had passed through her political transformation the Korean government was summoned to resume ancient friendship and vassalage. , An insolent reply was sent to Japan. The nation was not yet ready for action, and the insult was pocketed, though the restoration of superior relations to Korea was thenceforth more distinctly than ever the goal of Japanese foreign policy. In 1876 an unwarranted attack on some Japanese soldiers led to the in vasion of the peninsula. There was no war, however; Chma advised the king to accept the first of the alternatives Japan offered a treaty of commerce or war. Korea chose as China advised. Three ports were opened, and both by China and by Japan Korea was de clared free and independent. In 1884 there came another clash be tween the liberal and conservative fac tions, which ended in the triumph of stagnancy, but a recognition on the part of both China and Japan of equal Interests and right to intervene. When the Tong Hak Insurrection threw Korea into disorder In 1894 both countries sent troops, China noti fying Japan as she did so that Korea was her tributary state and Japan in her reply challenging China's claim. This was the real ' issue at stake in the Chino-Japanese war which en sued. Japan had never abandoned the idea of controlling Korea, either as a vassal state or as a stato independent of China find under the, tutelage of Japan. The war issued in the final demolition of all China's claim to the peninsula, and Korea slipped out for ever from her old moorings in the wake and undertow of Japan. Japan kept Korea for Just one year, and it cannot be denied that she, set a pace of progress and reform that took the breath out of her ward. All that Japan had learned from civilization she was eager to teach Korea, but the temptations of the situation were too great, and the impatience of the teach er could -not be restrained. She forgot that great changes need time and that civilization is a growth from within and not a garment thrown on from without, and forgetting this and intox icated with the Joy of reform she be gan to vaccinate the people and to cut their hair, to prescribe the width of their sleeves and the cut of their trousers, and yet . while pleased as a child with the chance of teaching the mint and anise and cummin of prog ress she by no means lost sight of the weightier matters of the law. Natural ly a people schooled for centuries in Confucian notions, comatose with Chi Hese conservation, even though star tled by the overthrow of their old patron and the meteoric demonstra tion of the superiority of western ways, did not like to be hustled along in this fashion. The Japanese, on the other hand, became convinced that they could get Korea civilized yet more rapidly if the queen, who was not a reactionary woman, but only a careful, shrewd, patriotic stateswoman, could be disposed of. The idea was mon strous, but the Japanese minister de liberately arranged for the murder of the queen. The deed was done early in the morning of Oct. 8, 1895. On the pre ceding evening Japanese influence was absolutely supreme in Korea, but no one loved it. The reforms had pro voked even the people most benefited by them. Japan had executed them in the most obtuse and unconciliatery way. No party had been built up fa vorable to Japanese influence. The dis missed officials loathed their rulers, and the common people were incensed at their diqaatorialness. The murder of the queen was the match. The ex plosion followed. One wonders at the stupidity of the Japanese in commit ftSJPK . a., blunder, v. Anyone oul seer tne temper or tne people. .Every one knew that the queen, even though she might be slow, and cautious, was the most reliable and Intelligent ele ment in the state and the best guaran tee of such progress as was made. But the blunder was committed, and in twenty-four hours Japan's Influence in Korea was dead. ,The king fled to the Russian legation, and the country passed without an effort on his part or the expenditure of ne dollar or one life into the hands of the czar. And so the eastern question, the most disturb ing and harassing question of the cen tury, rose up grimly in the Land of the Morning Calm. For a time the wise and tolerant and honest course of the Russian .minister in Seoul gave good promise that the question would not be freighted there with Jealousies and conflicts and threats of strife. He gav,e the king a temporary home, aid ed him in his course, discouraged him from injustice, advised the employ ment of an Englishman ' as , financial adviser of the treasury, with more power than he possessed for himself, dealt with firmness, moderation and self restraint toward all. Mr. Weber was soon transferred to Mexico, how ever, and the policy of Russia In Ko rea underwent a change. Japan had fought Ohxna to deliver Korea and recover her control of Ko rea's future. The issue qf It all had been simply the substitution of Russia for China On June 9, 1896, a conven tion was signed in Moscow which formally recognized thia. Two years later, on April 25, 18D8, Russia having other business on hand and wishing to tie up Japan, the two governments made a further agree ment, by which they agreed net to in terfere with Korea's independence, and' in case Korea asked one of them for advice it was te call in the other. Japan also was given the right to pro ceed with its commercial enterprises. ' It may be well to add a brief sum mary of the agreements between each power and Korea which have since en tered into the situation. First. Between Russia and Korea: A special" settlement at Masampo, April 20. 1900. A whale fishing arrangement which allows the Russians to try out the whales on the Korean coast at stations where a force of men and some buildings may be maintained and which might be construed to cover actual settlements. April 8, 1901, a renewed and enlarged tim ber concession, covering the watershed of the Yalu- and Tumen rivers and practical" ly giving to Russia the control of the northern frontier of Korea. A nonallena tion clause covering the Island of Koehei do, near Masampo. A promise that no more mines will be granted to foreigners and that if any one is lntrfVed with the operation of the Korean household mines (which include all the good mines of the country) such operator shall be a Rus sian. An agreement that if capital is to be secured for the completion of the Northwestern railway, from Seoul to Wel chu, such capital shall be secured from Russia and the work be intrusted to Rus sian engineers. Second. Between Japan and Korea: It may be noted that on Sept. 8, 1898, a concession was granted to a Japanese syn dicate for a railway to connect Seoul and Pusan. Work was formally begun on this road Aug. 4, 1901. -On Aug. 23, 1900, the Chlcksan mining concession was granted to a Japanese firm. On Oct. 3, 1900, an ad ditional fisheries - convention was agreed to between Korea and Japan. On Dec. 8, 1900, permission was granted to a Japanese company to reclaim a portion of the fore shore at Pusan. On May 30, 1301, a spe cial Japanese settlement at Masampo was announced. With reference to the Seoul Chemulpo railway, it might be added that this line was begun by Americans In 1897, was on Dec 1, 1697, mortgaged to the Ja pan Specie bank and on Dec. 81, 1898, formally taken over by a Japanese syndi cate headed by Baron Shlbusawa. The road was opened for tragic to the river near Seoul on Sept. 8, 1899, and to Seoul on the completion of the bridge, July 8, 1900. .' i ,: The Japanese have seen that the sit uation is impossible, and the mass of the people have chafed continually at the conditions which eliminated China from her Korean problem only to re place her by a vastly ; more terrible competitor. It has been the Manchu rinn question which has brought mat ters to a head. And It is to the credit of the Japanese that they have been able to view that question with sober ness and self restraint. The treaty of $himohoseki, which termiiAted the Chino-Japanese war, not only settled the destiny of Korea, but also trans ferred to Japan the Liaotung penin sula, embracing a great portion of Manchuria and Including the ports of i Port Arthur and Talienwan. It also opened four Manchurian ports to all foreign trade and assigned to the Japa nese exclusive commercial advantages in the interior. These fruits of the war were all torn from Japan by Rus sia, Germany and France by a treaty which they coerced Japan Into signing ( and in which she relinquished the rights she had acquired in Manchuria. The cnf ederates who . had intervened to save China from Japan at once re warded themselves by an Immensely greater raid upon the helpless empire. Germany got a foothold at Tientsin and Hankow and a little later took Shangtung. France obtained addition al territory and privileges in the south, and Russia by several moves slipped into Manchuria and absorbed the very rights of which she had induced Ger many and France to aid her in depriv ing Japan. Meanwhile she has pushed steadily forward in an aggressive pol icy in Korea. The . wonderful ; thing has been not that Japan has looked upon all this with amazement and an ger, but that she has dealt with it with patience and self control. She has proposed to.Russla that they agree In recognizing the Integrity of both China and Korea, eacb power to be acknowledged to have peculiar In terests, Russia In Manchuria and Ja pan in Korea. From the point of view of Japan and iu the light of history this is a fair and honorable proposi tion. It is a proposition on which Ja pan is entitled to the moral sympathy and support of the world. Russia in deed cannot take Korean territory without a breach of faith. In 1887, to secure the evacuation of Port Hamil ton, on the Korean coast, by Great Britain, the tsung 11 yamen rave Eng land assurance that the Russian gov ernment had given a "most explicit guarantee, distinctly declaring that in the future Russia would not take Ko rean territory." But Korea new sepa rates the Russian holdings on the Liau tong peninsula and at Vladivostok. Between, these ports .the Korea strait is the channel - of inffrcourse. Korea accordingly commands both the land and the w?er connections, and Its ta lan.d..bqujifx.Qn..tbe.yj4UiaM EWttfiji Green Trading Stamps With the Following Order at 58c.

TROPIC SPOT IN THE ARCTIC Verdant Basin Where Miners Can Always Take a Hot Bath. Latest Nome, advices received at Dawson give details of wonderful hot springs which make j a verdant spot just below the latitude of the Arctic ocean . In the midst of winter, says a Tacoma (Wash.) special dispatch. These springs are located on Reed river, KX) miles northwest of Riley camp, in the Kobuk river county. The thermal zone covers a large basin, where it is possible for travel ers to disrobe at any time of the year and bathe in warm water. Snow nev er falls there, and tbegrass is always green. Vegetation Is luxuriant, with Labundance of ferns six feet high. Min ers go mere ana Dame aunng me win ter months when the thermometer only a few miles away registers 60 to 70 below zero.

Xeoraalca Farmer AUa Minister to Get a Helpmeet For Him. A few days ago an Omaha paper printed an item to the effect that the Rev. Charles W. Savldge, pastor of the People's church, had performed 1,000 marriage ceremonies in his lifetime. James Snell, a farmer In western Ne braska who is reputed to be worth $500,000, read the item, and the other day he called at the parsonage and asked Mr. Savldge If he could not look him up a wife, says an Omaha dis patch. "I have 1,000 acres of land, 3,000 head of cattle, hundreds of horses and a good home," be said, "but I have no wife and am too busy to look for one. If you will find me one I will agree to pay you handsomely for her and, will, if you desire, furnish you' ample capi tal to establish a matrimonial agency. I believe, sir, you would make a good matrimonial agent, and I'd like to help you get a start." , J ; Mr. Savidge did not accept his offer. V Raya From Plant. Botanists have recently been investi gating the N rays, and we are told that they are emitted from plants, as well as from nerves and muscles, and that the fluorescent screen will glow when brought near to the plant, especially the leaves and the roots, where the ef fect is more pronounced than in the case of the flower, says Harper's Week ly. N rays are emitted from such plants as onions and mushrooms, so that they do not. seem to depend upon the pres ence of chlorophyll, or green coloring matter, their intensity being apparently due to the activity and condition of the vegetable protoplasm. This was shown by the fact that the N rays were pro duced from germinated seedlings and not from , those which had not germi nated, while their emission was stop ped entirely on using chloroform to sus pend the vital activity of the plant. loot' Burlnsi AcIa In Faahloa. - The old fashioned long earring has come into favor again, says a London dispatch to the New York American and Journal.
