Election day, Nov. I. '
Three counties have already pro
nounced for a uniform primary law
Chester, Lackawanna and Lycoming.
The demand should be made unani
mous. It Is the one forward step most
needed In Pennsylvania politics.
SOME, figures read In the Brit
ish house of commons the
other day possess significance.
They Indicate that Immigra
tion into the Canadian northwest from
the United States is growing amazing
ly. Within four years they have,, risen
from -1,000 to 24,000 annually, and at
the present time there Is a literal rush
of farm-seekers to get from the Yankee
over into the Canadian side of the
Manitoba-Dakota border. It Is esti
mated by the Chicago Tribune, which
has been at some pains to look into
this matter, that 25,000 acres of Can
adian lands aie sold to Americans
every day. That journal truly says
that "if sales are kept-up at this rate
and the lands purchased are brought
under cultivation it will not bo long
before Canada will be raising 250,000,000
bushels of wheat a year Instead of the
80,000,000 ral&ed now."
Tho fact of interest about this mi
gration is that it is bound to increase
the feeling on both &ides of the bor
der In favor, first, of reciprocity and,
later, of annexation. At the present
time Canada is dominated by Ontario
and Quebec, corresponding, one might
almost say, to the political dominance
once exercised in the United States by
New England and New York, possibly
including New Jersey. In other words,
it is an eastern dominance, a domin
ance partly of numbers but also in part
of age and tradition. It will pass
away. The sceptre of empire will pass
westward, as It Is passing in our coun
try. The great grain fields of the Can
adian northwest have before them a
destiny similar to that through which
Minnesota and the Dakotas have re
cently passed, and the same class of
people who have builded our empire
west of tho Mississippi will, in the next
generation, participate in another great
epic of empire building beyond the Red
River of the North and the Asslnlholn.
But it will be American In sympathy
and not British. It will have Its ante
cedents In tho States and not in far
away France or Albion. Consciously
or unconsciously it will draw toward
the motherland. First it will look for
the demolition or reduction of artificial
trade barriers, and we hope and be
lieve will not always have to look In
vain. Next, it will desire amalgama
tion, full fellowship in the big labors
and rewards in store for tho Ameri
can people in the days of tho repub
lic's maturity. .
It Is unfortunate that Canada should
be so far In the rear of modern condi
tions, of what may well bo called the
modern atmosphere. She will have to
bo pulled up by the main strength
largely of her western settlers. That
will take time and delay manifest des
tiny. But In 'our' vlow of tho case It
will npt alter that destiny.
Tho dedication by the trustees of the
new armory of tho Thirteenth regiment
Brimming pool to public uses Is a gen
erous and much appreciated action. It
will largely fill a truly long felt want.

T WILL NOT be the fault of tho
shrewd old Scotchman now at
tho head of our agricultural de
partment if there shall be any
thing grownblo which shall not soon
be grown and developed into a profit
able industry in these United States.
Secretary Wilson Is scouring the ends
of tho earth for valuable plants with
which to enrich domestic agriculture
and It Is no secret that he is meeting
with much success.
The persistence with which he has
urged and promoted the experimental
culture of tea In certain well-sliited
portions of the South and the assiduity
with which he has Insisted upon it that
wo can grow in Connecticut and pos
sibly in other domestic tobacco grow
ing communities a quality of wrapper
leaf as good as any that come3 from
Sumatra are well known to readers of
newspapers; and now he is at work
upon a new tack. Noticing that tho
United States has in recent years be
come the second largest silk manufac
turing country in the world, but Is yet
forced to Import in the neighborhood
of $15,000,000 worth of raw silk every
year; and also perceiving that tho
mulberry tree, upon which the silk
worm feeds, can be grown successfully
In almost every state in the Union,
Secretary Wilson lately prevailed upon
congress to allow his department a
$10,000 appropriation with which to in
itiate experiments in the raising of silk
worms and the production of raw silk.
In both France and Italy silk worm
raising forms a profitable occupation
for the women and children on many
a thousand farm. In France alone 150,
000 families are thus employed. The
work, while requiring unremitting at
tention, is not laborious and takes but
a small part of each day, leaving time
for other duties. Where conditions are
favorable tho returns are large in pro
portion to the requisite Investment.
There have been a number of hap
hazard experiments in American silk
culture, but nothing like a scientific
study of soils and climatic conditions
with the purpose In view of determin
ing where the best results can be ob
tained. With the facilities at the dis
posal of the agricultural department,
through its chemical and bacteriolo
gical branches and its widely distrib
uted experiment stations, It should be
possible quite soon to arrive at definite
results in this matter. The chief trouble
heretofore has been in securing the
proper attention for tho worms. It Is
a kind of labor which does not come
natural to the average American. It
must be learned. Secretary Wilson has
hope that In the South conditions may
be prepared for the profitable intro
duction of silk culture on a large scale;
and ho intends to give the matter a
That It is worth it may be Inferred
from a few figures compiled by W. E.
Curtis for the Chicago Record-Herald.
During the year 1D0O 70 per cent, of the
silk dress goods worn in tho United
States were manufactured hero and S5
per cent, of the ribbons. In 1900 we
produced 5107,2oO,25S woitli of silk goods
and imported only $2G,803,549. Yet, as
said before, we had to import raw silk
equal In value to nearly one-half of
the total product after Its manufacture.
The gain which would come through
tho raising of tho raw material or a
considerable part of it at home, is
obvious. To attain this end is well
worth experimental costs far in excess
of any yet proposed.
Now that the shouting has ceased,
what has England got for the round
billion of dollars and the many thous
and lives expended in the South Afri
can struggle? We don't wonder that

chemical treatment for wood which
would make It truly Incombustible, es
pecially it It wore of a character
adapted to commercial purposes and
not too costly In price. We fancy that

ALWAYS HONEST VALUES.
- A W
Can Wood Be Made Fireproof?
UCII has been said In re
cent years about the ul
legcd progress made by
chemical science In treat
ing wood bo ns to make It powerful to
resist fire or heat. Those who credit
this are likely to have their confidence
shaken by a report lately made public
by the director of tho Insurance en
gineering experiment station at Bos
ton, Edward Atkinson. Mr, Atkinson
obtained from six manufacturers sam
ples of wood represented to bo abso
lutely Incombustible. He subjected
these to every test thut ho could apply;
also to tests established by tho Navy
department, and In certain Instances to
special tests suggested by the, manu
facturers, with this result;
"Wo are now prepared to report that
such wood Is not fireproof; that It may
be readily Ignited; that It Is less In
flammable than untreated wood of the
same kind, but that when It has been
subjected to a heat of one thousand de
grees Fahrenheit, which Is very much
lower than the temperature usuully
generated from the combustion of (he
contents of very muny buildings, the
chemical substunces are very quickly
distilled, the wood then Iguiies und
burns, making a hot lire until the
erlal Is consumed, adding unques
ably to tho heat generated by the
bustlou of the contents of the build-
lriAlor apparatus used,"
Naturally this kind of report has
failed to satisfy the 'manufacturers of
Saved His Life by Repartee
A Pontine roofer saved his life recently
by his nptness at repartee Ho was out
on tho roof of an Insano asylum at Ponti
ne, making some lcpatrs, within a foot
of tho caves. Suddenly the noise of his
hammer was interrupted by a volco bo
hlnd htm, calmly saying:
"Well, como on! Lot's Jump down to
gether!" Tho roofer turned and saw a maniac
standing behind him. Tho glitter In the
madman's eyo made tho roofer look with
a feeling cf dread at tho ground below,
realizing that there was no escape.
Tho roofer concealed his fright a mo
ment. He oven smiled contemptuously
as he looked Into the maniac's face.
"Huh!" ho remarked, "any blamed
fool could jump clown. But let's go down
und try to jump up."
"Say, that's nn Idea," exclaimed the
insano man. "Como on. Let's go down
and try it." And ho led tho way to tho

lias been going the rounds of the insur
ance men lor tho past few days. Some
men there are who will talk politics in
season and out of season, and of such a
class are two down town business men
of opposing political views, but withal
good friends. They are still thrashing
over the recent municipal campaign, but
the acute stage has so far passed that
their controversies now usually tako the
form of good-natured chaff.

full operation not hidden, but doing

chant whom ho considered to bo a par
tlculaily eligible and deslrablo subject for
insmanco, In seaton and out of season,
In sickness and health ho had sought In
terviews, but was defeated at every tutu.
Finally, ho having selected a most in
opportune time for a call, the merchant,
thoroughly worn out, ordered tho agent
In unmlstakablQ language to leavo his
premises. As the man did not heed the
request promptly ho was incontinently
thrown out on the hall floor. Fulling
himself togother and regaining his feet,
with his equanimity nnd complacency un
disturbed, he brushed tho dust from his
clothes, smiled blandly upon his antagon

STATE NORMAL SCHOOL
EAST STROUDSBURG, PA.
A young woman who has been living In
Paris for a year says that no French
manleuro who treated her hands used a
cuticle knife about her nails or a htcel
noil-cleaner. Tho little orango-wood
sticks sharpened to a broad point were
used to puBh back the encroaching cuticle,
nnd to clean tho nnlls after each wash
ing of tho hands, In this way tho deli
cate cnamol of the nail Is not Injured, and
tho under surface of the nail point Is kept
smooth. The French manicures, too, pol
ish more often with a bit of chamois
rather than a regular polisher, nnd cut
the nails with a clipper Instead of curved
scissors. These clippers como In pairs,
one for cutting the nails of each hand,
Kmery boards or a velyot die is recom
mended for tho little filing needed to
shape the nails. Never cut tho cuticle
around tho nail, but press bock lightly
with the orange-wood stick. Pally brief
core when the pall Is soft from the uso
of soap and water Is all that is needed to
keep tho hands In good condition with a
weekly manicuring. Use lemon Juice In
stead of any other acid to rcmovo stains,
This popular State Institution is located in the midst of the
Delaware Water Gap-Mount Pocono Summer Resort Region,
the most healthful and picturesque in the state, and one that is
visited by thousands of tourists annually.
COURSES OF STUDY.
In addition to the departments of the regular Normal Course,
we have special departments of Music, Elocution Art, Drawing and
Water Color, and a full College Preparatory Department. You can
save a year in your college preparatory work by coming here,
Tuition is absolutely free to those complying with the new
state law. This gives a rare opportunity to those desiring a com
plete education and should be taken advantage of at once, as this
law may be repealed by the next Legislature
COST OF BOARDING
Boarding expenses are $3.50 per week, which includes fully
furnished and carpeted room, heat, electric light and laundry. The
additional expense is less with us than at most other schools.

THE WEATHER AND MORAXS,
Wind and storm havo a great and di
rect lnttueneo upon morals, says Profes
sor Pextor,' of tho University of Illinois,
in tho Popular Scionco monthly. Ho has
carofully tabulated a long scries of ex
periments, and llnds that when tho wind
doea not blow harder than four miles an
hour, children stay at home from school
in threo times as great numbers, mora
policemen aro off duty, more errors aro
mado by bank clerlts, and more people
die. lie discovers ulso that women and
children aro mora suscepttblo to storm
and calm than men, and that fewer seri
ous crimes are committed during: calm
days, and ho interprets his statistics in
this ways "During calms,'1 ho says,
"those life phenomena which are due to
depleted vitality aro excessive, and thoso
which aro duo to excessive vitality aro
deficient In number." In explanation of
this stato of nffalrs there are two general
hypothesis. Tho first is based upon tho
general facts bearing upon ventilation,
and tho second upon thoto of atmospheric
elcctilclty. Tho ihst would only bo ap
plicable to tho conditions of largo cities,
while tha second would bo valid for nny
spot on tho earth's surface, If tho nor
mal proportions of 'oxygen are to bo
maintained In the Immediate vicinity ot
gteat combustion of oxygen, fresh air
must by i-oma means bo brought in to
tako tho placo of that tho normal mix
turo of which has been disturbed. Wo
aro quite familiar with these fucts in
their beailng upon tho ventilation of
buildings, but thero is no difference ex
cept that of magtltudo between a build.
Ing in which the air is bolng robbed of its
oxygen through combustion and a city
in which tho came process is going on."
