Washington, June 18.—Warren (I.
Harding will declare for a hands-off
policy (oward congress as one of the
chief issues of his campaign for the
presidency, according to his advisors.
An end to dictatorship of the exe
cutive will also be the campaign cry
pounded into every precinct during
the Harding campaign. Harding is
on record as opposed to a one-man
government, and will shape his ad
min ist rati
on, if elected, only by ad
vice of counsellors, it was said.
Washington, June 18.—The re
publican party will gladly accept the
challenge of President Wilson for a
referendum on tlie League of Na
tions, Senator Harding, republican
presidential nominee, said today.
When asked regarding the presi
dent's interview Harding said, "I am
sure the republican party will gladly
welcome a referendum on the ques
tion of the foreign relationship
this republic and the republican atti
tude of preserved nationality will be
overwhelmingly endorsed." Harding
breakfasted with Herbert Hoover.
Hoover later called upon all republi
can factions to support the Harding
Coolidge ticket.
1,1 SH.MENT $!MUI00,00
Chicago, Juae 18.—Establlment
of a fund of $10,000,000 to exlend
financial aid to western wool grow
ers awaiting the reestablshment of
the wool market, was considered at
a conference here today of western
bankers and sheep ranchers. Chica
go bankers were asked to displace
the Boston banks in financing the
annual wool clip of the country
which plan, if .successful, would
make Chicago the nation's wool cen
Chicago bankers were inclined to
view the proposition favorably today,
provided they were given the sup
port of the western bankers. Bos
ton has been forced to relinquish its
hold on this financing because of the
present tight money markftt, speak
ers said.
Today's conference was held at th"
suggestion of W. P. G. Harding, gov
ernor of the federal reserve Hoard,
and was attended by western bankers
and sheep ranchers. Senators
Walsh, Montana Pittman, Nevada,
King. Utah Hitchcock, Nebraska,
and Chamberlain, Oregon, called the
of $18. And yet the price of gold
remains about the same, ft can
readily be seen therefore that where
formerly a good profit could be made
at the industry there is no profit and
more or less of a loss in the game
"Alaska is a land of promfse," he
continued, "but before that promise
can be fulfilled there must be a re
adjustment. Our mines, our forests
and our coal fields contain immeas
urable wealth which is but waiting
for the time to come when it can be
thrown onto the American ioarketa,"

Montreal, June 18.—Samuel Gom

American Federation of Labor this
afternoon almost unaimously. Only

Pierre, June 18.—The oil question
will no doubt be settled so far as
the Black Hills section of this state
is concerned, as several rigs are
ready to begin drilling in the vicinity
of Buffalo Gap and other points far
ther west in the state.
The possibilities of successful oil
drilling in the central part of the
state will also be tested out before
fall, a£ the contracts for drilling rigs
have been let for a test well a short
distance from Fort Pierre, this well
to be put down by a combination of
organizations in the central part Of
the state.
The man who wants to take a flier

Lincoln, Neb., June 18.- On
March 10, 1918, a baby daughter
was born to Mr. and Mrs. Mario®
Chirila, of Omaha. On the third day
thereafter it was decided to hold ft
christening and the husband set out
in search of John Salestin, who had
been chosen as godfather. While
waiting for a street car James Corr,
a manufacturer of South Omaha,
came along with a truck and invited
Marion to ridp with him. A few
blocks further on the truck skidded
and Chirila wrs thrown on a pile of
bricks and received injuries from
which he died shortly thereafter.
The widow thereupon sued Corr
for damages, alleging that he drove
the truck at an unlawful and exces
sive rate of speed and that it was
this conduct of his that caused the
death of her husband. Corr defend
ed on the ground that the accident
was not due to any speeding on his
part, but because of a dog that ran
out in front of the car. In an effort
to avoid hitting the animal he dis
arranged the steering gear.
A Douglas county jury awarded
the widow $1,000, and Corr has filed
his appeal in the supreme court.
One of the le*al questions involved
is the liability of a person who in
vites another to ride in his car in
case an accident occurs and the guest
is injured or killed. Chirila was 33
years old and left a wife and three
small children.
Brookings, June 18.—From all ap
pearances cut worms will not be as
bad this year in South Dakota as last
year, reports A. L. Ford, extension
entomologist at State college, after
several weeks of field work in the
L\uring a recent trip over the north
central part of the state very few
cut worms were noticed in land be
ing prepared for corn. Although the
situation looks encouraging, some
trouble will probably be had la cer
tain localities.
The army cutworm and the true
army worm fall into a group consti
tuting the more injurious insects in
South Dakota.. In the past much loss
to crops has occurred because no at
tempt was made to control these in
sects. The control measures for
both are practically identical
.It has been demonstrated under
many varying conditions that these
insects can be efficiently controlled
by poison bran mash. The formula
for the mash is as follows:
Wheat bran, 25 pounds.
White arsenic or paris greea (aot
%ad arsenate), 1 pound.
Black strap molassesj»2 quart*.
Lemon or oranges, 6 fruits.
Water, about 4 gallons.
Mix thoroughly the bran and poi
son while still dry. Pour the mo
lasses and grind the fruit into about
3 gallons of water and stir thorough
ly. After this solution is well mixed,
sprinkle it over the dry bran and
poison which should be mixed vigor
ously during the process. After the
flavored solution is all used, bring
the mash up to the proper consis
tency with water. The mash should
not be wet enough to drip when
squeezed in the hand.
Where worms are moving into a
field apply this poisoned mash liber
ally over a strip several rods wide
in their path. The bait should be
applied always in late afternoon. In
case the worms are not moving, and
this applies to our common cutworms
also, the mash' should be scattered
over the infested areas in small
lumps. One such application will
usually result il from 60 to 76 per
cent kill.

Dwellers in Cornish Village Maintain
Their Right to Look on Statue
With Reverenci.
In Launceston, a small town In Corn
wall. one image and one old custom
have remained in spite of the Puri
tans, says a contributor to London
Country Life, who relates a Curiou
survival of the old days when Oliver
Cromwell and his image-smashing sol
diers ruled Kngland. l'erlntps it was
because the Cornish did not take kincf
ly to the Puritan spirit, continues the
writer, but the Magdalen of Launee«
ton remains and the people of Launces
ton still believe in her power for good
and evil. The figure, which rets in
a canopied niche between the center
of the three windows at the east end
of the. parish church, is a little less
than life-size, and represents the Mag
dalen as lying face down In an attl
tude of grief. By her side is what is
described as a skull or the hox of
What Is still more Interesting,is the
large number of stones, pebbles nnd
pieces of slate always to be seen scat
tered and untidy on the hack of the
figure or uion the sill of the window
above. They represent the triumph of
custom or superstition. The people be
lieve that If you cast a stone up at the
figure and It remains upon it you will
get your reward. If you treat the stat
ue* with disrespect you will suffer.
The stones on the window sill repre
sent failure those on the figure, suc
cess. The people of Launceston are
reluctant to talk about this belief of
theirs. If you ask, they will half shyly
tell you that fhe children believe it. I

they were children they threw a stone'
up when they wanted a new pair of
boots or a treat of some kind.
"And did you get it?" you ask.
You will generally be told, "Yes."
If you watch, you will see that the
children still believe it, and that some
of the "children" have long since pass
ed school age. The stones are always'
there, always increasing. Of the many!
stories I heard of the Magdalen of
Launceston one was of how the nar
rator, when a boy, many years ago,
came running home from school and.
passing the statue, jumped at it to hit
Its face. He told me that It might
have been that or it might not, but
before he was out of the churchyard
he slipped, sprained his cnkle and was
In bed for many days. No one seems
to know how old the custom Is, but the
statue ittself is not old as ecclesiasti
cal figures count aga.
