Hundreds at letters are coming to the department of plant pathology at M. A. C. from shade tree owners who are alarmed lest they will lose some of their shaders through what they coneider a disease. The department Is In receipt of a half bushel of sam ple leaves taken from trees, especially the hard maples, for analysis. In each instance the leaves are brown and curled up. That the brown spots are merely sun scorches has been proved by scientist In the department, and are net the effects 'of any disease. Owing to the brown spots the department has discovered that a number of Michigan city and village dwellers are cutting down these 6un-scorched trees, think ing that they would infect nearby trees. In pome towns "tree doctors" have reaped a golden harvest for spraying the sun-scorched trees to "kill the In sect." While the sun-scorch may re tard growth the tree Is unharmed. New Incorporations..

Commissioner Cunningham has ap pointed James II. Lynch of Owoso as factory inspector for th Tenth dis trict, including Shiawassee, Saginaw, Midland, Isabella, Gratiot and Clare counties. Cause of High Pork. "There are three reasons for the high price of pork and its scarcity in this state," says George A. Brown, In strurtor In animal husbandry at the M. A. C. "One Is the high price of corn a year ago, the second is the high price of corn caused many breeders to kill their breeding stock, and the third cause is cholera out breaks." ' According to Investigations made at the college, a farmer lost money a year ago In raising pork on account of the high price of corn. One bufhcl of corn, the college r?curds show, will make ten pounds of pork. "Live hogs, a year ago. eold for seven cents a pound. At this price one bushel of corn at 80 cents If sold and not fed, would mean a profit. If it created but ten pounds of fat, the breeder would get 'but 70 cents. The pork surply is figured on a year akead, hogs being bred according to pork prices and the corn crop. "A year ago a farmer could not af ford to raise pork and now much of our perk is fattened on cull beans and slop. I think pork is due to take a drop in a few months, es the prico of corn now and tho big crop of a year ago will have its effect. "At the 1 present prices of corn, which is 6S'-i cents In Chicago, the hog breeder can make money. If he had to buy corn and pay the freight to Michigan. Live hogs are brlngiug 8'4 cents a pound." Professor Brown points out the gain on a 500-pound hog would be $10.75 at the prevailing prices of both pork and corn. Theater Owners Warned.

Even If the Phillies do not win the National league pennant this year they have demonstrated that they are a fast and game team. Manager Charley Dooln has some of the heaviest hitters In the league on his roster. Cactus Cravath and Sherwood Magee are the star Bluggers of Dooln's club, and have contributed In large measure to keeping the Phillies at the top the greater part of the season. Sherwood Magee has done some rare exe cution with the stick, though he has experienced batting slumps at times. His present batting mark is over .300.Magee has long been recognized as among the great hitters of the diamond and has a batting eye that the pass ing years do not appear to dim. WORLD TOUR GREAT SUCCESS Upan, Philippines, Australia and France Will Receive Americans With Open Arms. K warm welcome In foreign lands awaits the Chicago White Sox and the New York Giants, asserts James A. Hart, formerly president of the Chicago Cubs, who returned recently from a trip around the world, travers ing part of the route the globe-trotting baseball teams will follow next winter. He predicts an enthusiastic recep tion of the baseball players in all those nations which already have shown an interest In the sport, and especially in Japan, the Philippines, Australia and France. "Manila will give a great welcome to the teams," said Mr. Hart. "So will Australia, If tpcrteany games are not played in one" city. In Japan baseball Is confined mostly to the colleges, though I saw small boys playing the game. It appeals more to the educat ed classes than the rank and file, however, so the work there will be educational rather than remunerative. Jams A. Hart. There are a number of league In Paris where the game has a great rogue and they should draw well. The deportment of players on and off the field will be most Important, as the people in the countries to be visited hardly would understand the quarrel Ing vith the umpires and some of the tricks which are here regarded as legitimate." Slugging Pitcher. Pitcher Rube Benton of the Reds Is letting to be some hitter. . 7 v Amonthe, - Walter Johnson is Griffith's only heaver who bothers tho Mackmcn. Mike Balentl, the former Carlisle Indian, is becoming a star shortstop. Smoky Joo Woods considers that speed is his best asset in the pitching line. The Cuban fans aro certainly loyal to their players whene ver they get the chance. First Baseman Pipp of the Tigers sure is a Plppiu. His batting and fielding is very good. Larry Doyle Is given the cerdit by George Stallings for putting and keep ing tho Giants out iu front. Birdie Creo of the hlghlanders ascribes his batting slump to play ing the sun field at the I'olo grounds. Lee Tannehill is playing grand ball for the Minneapolis Millers since he was released to that club by tht Kan sas City Blues. "This man Lavan of the Browns Is the best shortstop I have ever seen," said Umpire George Hildebrand of tho American league. Big league scouts are heading for the Pacific coast to watch the work of Player Coffey of the Long Beach team of the Southern California league. Secretary Foster of the New York Giants says be has received many let ters from anxious fans asking for tick ets to be reserved for them to the world's scries.

' ALPHABETICAL BALL TEAMS Interesting Fad of Eastern "Bug" in ; Selecting Players for Champion "Letter" Club. Tho alphabetical craze has caught soino of the baseball fans in its mesh es, with the result that a number of teams with players all of whose names begin with the same letter have been picked from the two big leagues.

P. view Republicans Coming Back to Regular Organization. Oklahoma Editor Confident That the Pn0rcMve Movement Is Receding Democratic Party Cannot Re tain Confidence. 'It would seem to a man 'who runs' that the Progressive movement baa reached lta crest and that it is now re ceding," observed C. B. Douglas, or, Muskogee, Okla., former owner and editor of the Muskogee Phoenix, In an, Interview at Washington. "My views are those of a Republican, but 1 bo lleve without prejudice that 1 can Biio up the situation. Everywhere I have gone I have noticed that those who were loudest In their clamor for Pro gresslvo victory are now contenting themselves with asserting that they are willing to go back to the Republic an party If that party will adopt pro gressive ideas. It was my privilege to go as a delegate to the Republican state convention In Oklahoma, and I was Instructed to vote for Roosevelt. 1 wrote the platform, and declared that ! would not serve unless the adminis tration of President Taft was com-' mended. 1 didn't care how much Col onel Roosevelt was indorsed after that. There is no denying the tremendous popularity of Roosevelt, and steam roller methods may have been used at Chicago to nominate Taft, but in my view a Republican cannot be true to himself unless he remains a regular. "I have had an Idea, for a long time that there is some sort of a microbo In a Democratic brain which makes that party incapablo of government I be lieve, therefore, that tho Democrats can be depended on to do the wrong thing at the right time, as they have always done, with the result that the Republicans will win in 191U. We may not. elect a Republican houee neit year, but we shall be in good shape fol lowing the congressional elections for the more Important campaign that 1 to follow two ycarB later." Party Unien and Strength. The end of party organization is strength. Thero Is no virtue in the preservation of organization or efforts that are unproductive. If the Republic an party felt that its days of vlctorlee were over it would be marked for sure disintegration and would havo no cause for complaint at such an end to Its magnificent history. There Is no disgrace in honest defeat; neither Is thero dishonor In disorganization after the work of a party has been finished. It was predicted that the split of the Republicans would have this outcome The contrary has been true. The forces of Integration aro strongly at work throughout the country. Tho Republic ans who adhered to or who dissented from' the organization are getting to gether. It may be confidently asserted that if this process would bring back to the party those who left It for other standards, not only would tho Repub lican party be no weaker for its chas tisement if so, it Is to bo construed but it would be strengthened bythc addillon of tli great body of eober. citizens who cannot abldo tho courses of the Democrats. Baltimore Ameri can. Another "Progressive" Schedule. The Democratic scnato would appear to be in a state of permanent irrita tion against the causes of education and enlightenment In this country , rl laving tacked to this supposed "pro gressive" tariff bill a tax on modem works of art, it looked about for an other object for the same sort of fis cal vandalism, and found it in import-, ed books printed In foreign languages, on which it proposes to clap a tax of 25 per rent, ad valorem. Thus is a burden put on precisely a clase of books used and imperatively needed by students, technicians and educational institutions. The Democratic framers of an al leged "tariff for revenuo" propose to squeeze a tax out of tho users of for eign books of culture and Instruction whllo throwing away $50,000,000 in revenue by untaxing the raw material of the eugar trust. Talk about a tariff of abominations I Not a Partisan Matter. ' Tho Democrats have determined to1 regard the currency bill as a purely partisan matter. Wc submit that this is a wrong point of view. If over there was a measure upon which the general welfare depended, Independent of par ty consideration, It Is tho currency bill. Any plan which is to be workable must of necessity be free from political con sideration. The monetary commission, a nonpartisan body, recognized this fact. It gave heed to experts from every section without regard to party affiliation, and its report was unani mous. It has never boon the case in the past that financial legislation was framed upon a partisan political bads. It should not be the case now. Why? Under Democratic tariffs, protection or "free trade," the acts of 18M, 1S4, 1857, 1894, art was free. Free art has been an uninterrupted Democratic theory and practice until 1918. The New York Sun asks upon what principle and whose responsibility the senato finance committee hoe reversed the Democratic position, and, leso kind to American elevation and civili zation than Aldrlcb tnd Payne, has or dalntd that only works of art 10 years ' r more old shall b on the ftco list'
