ilcultuial possibilities In Irrigation,
Mr. Tanslll cited the development that
it had accomplished In the I'ecos val
ley of New Mexico. "Twelve years
ago," he said, "all of that legion save
a small area, was n pan of the Client
Anieiican Desert. The attention of In
valids wa, n isss, directed to tho
great possibilities of that valley under
litigation. Invalids lalsed and ex

The sanltaiy argument for li ligation
Is btoadcr than the Immediate tellef
held out to victims of tubeiculosls.
For that tellef It is not necessity to
go West. Outdoor cxciclse Is Just as
benefit lal heie as there. Hut litigation
means ie-foiestratlon and lo-toi estima
tion means aids to health for nil classes
of mankind. Hence li ligation will pay
doubly first as an Investment, pio
diicing Immediate piofltn; and secondly
as a benefaction, helpful to humanity
unto the temotest time.
It U very evident from the tenor of
the daily new that many yet hug the
delusion that might makes light.
Delightful Bird Books.
ONH OF THK things that Is pS.

It may be hoped that the Inlluence
of such hooks as these, all of which
with not a few otheis on bird lite nie
especially fatilnatlng to tho' young
people who aio so foituuato as to have
them bestowed on them, will help to
put an end to the uuel slaughter of
tho birds for "millinery" and "feather

The "Jeanne D'Arc" Is something won

Keep this oblect lesson In mind.
Tho opportunities of that earlier tlmo
were In coal, today greater opportanl
tles exist In oil, which Is fuel In a
more conctcte form and Is rapidly
supplanting coal, because It Is easier
nnd cheaper to mine and handle, and
Is, besides being a more economic
fuel for all large consumers, profit
able for a hundred other uses. The
oil of California la furnishing that
state with cheap fuel, for the lack of
which her progress has been woefully
retarded The entire Pacific toast
will consume oil as a fuel, so that
the demand upon the oil fields of Cali
fornia Is unlimited. California oil
lefiners will hold the markets of tho
far Kast and of the west coast nf
South America. It Is plain to be seen
that the oil fields of California will
be the source of Incalculable wealth,
far beyond what the coal mines of
Pennsylvania have been in the past.
All thoughtful tmn can see that tho
tldng to do now to make money Is
to buy the shares of conservative, re
putably managed oil companies hav.

This action is taker, for the puipose of protecting legitimate
contestants and preventing the possibility of any speculator from
entering the last day or two and purchasing a $1,000 scholarship
by presenting the names of his friends as new subscribers and
paying for them himself. While nothing of this sort was attempted
last year, the close of the contest demonstrated that it would have
taken much less than $i,ooo to have purchased the first special
reward, as Ihe winning contestant had only secured for The
Tribune less than $400 in new subscriptions. The Tribune desires
to protect tne contestants that aie working so nobly for it and will
use its best endeavor to have every feature of the contest perlectly
fair, and it wishes it distinctly understood that the rewards of
fered are in no sense for sale, but will positively go to the con
testants who secure the largest number of points, which will be
credited only (or new and legitimate subscribers.
The Special Rewards:
Scholarship in Lafayette College $1,000
Scholarship in Swarthmore College 1,000
Scholarship in Stroudsburg Normal School 675
Three Scholarships in Scranton Business
College, $60 Each 180
Two Scholarships in Scranton Conserva
tory of riusic, $75 Each 150
Each contestant failing to secure one of these special rewards
will be given ten (10) per cent, of all the money he or she turns in.
