THE HONESDALE CITIZEN : THURSDAY MORNING-, AUGUST 27, 1908,
President's Son to Be His Photog

WILL SNAPSHOT WILD LIFE.

Methods of Snapplnn Dlrdi.
Kermlt Iloosevelt li to bo Ibo offi
cial photographer with the presldent'a
party on the African bunting trip. In
preparation for this Important work
tho young man la studying with
Frank M. Chapman, tho ornithologist
of New York city.
The rcpoMllilIlty which will rest on
Kcrmlt'a ehoulderti will be heavy, for
all hli fnthcr'a account of hi ml ven
tures in the Junttlc.t of tho dark contl
ncnt aro to bo lllnatrntnl. It I, nln
anderatnnd that the pivMent In anx

African blnli and other nnlninN taken
In life for several of the Me iniwiinii".
Including the Hnitthmnlun ItHlllutlnii
at Waahlnctfin nnl the American Mu
seum of Natural History In Now
York. Tho preient vih anxious In
havo Mr. Chapman aceompany him,
says the New York Times, but when
this was found to Iw liniwslble It wan
decided that Kermlt should (ret n com
plete camera outfit and be trained In
Its use by Mr. Chapman.
Mr. Chapman has long been n friend
of tho president. As associate curator
of the department of ornithology f
tho Museum of Natural Ulstory lie
has mado frequent trlm Into the In
terior of Florida, photographing rare
and beautiful birds at close range and
In ttw end making tho collection at the
museum one of the most complete and
valuable In tho world.
It lias Ijccii unusual Indeed for hlui
to pass through Washington since Mr.
Iloosevelt has liccu president without
atopplng mcr for luncheon or dinner
at the White llnuse, when the presi
dent and he have discussed birds to
the delight of both.
'The president could not hae so
lected n tiellcr man to help him pre
paro for tho photographic end of tho
expedition," said n friend of Mr. Chap
man tho other day. "Ho has mode a
long and thorough study of birds with
the camera, and he is not only an ox
port In tho use of the camera, but
knows all the tricks of how to get
closo to tho birds." '
Tho question now under considera
tion by Kermlt nud Mr. Chapman Is
tho best kind of photographic outfit to
take. It Is expected that tho camcrn
alone, with the several lenses. Includ
ing a powerful long range lens, will
cost aliout Jj2.V. He will liavo to
snap birds hopping and flying and wild
animals In motion.
But tho mechanical operation of tho
camera and n thorough understanding
of Its mechanism, so that ho can repair
It In tho event of Ha getting out-of or
der far from the haunts of men, are but
a small part of what Mr. Chapman will
teach the president's son. It Is ono
thing to photograph youug folks on a
lawn, nil anxious to bo In the picture,
and another to catch a wary bird In
tho heart of tho Jangle.
Mr. Chapman's success has boon duo
to the fact that he has been nblo to get
very closo views of birds. Ono of bis
favorlto methods Is to construct a
Wind, cover It over with brush and
then loe.ro It for weeks until tho birds
have become thoroughly accustomed to
It Then bo has slipped Into It before
- tho birds arc nttlr and has often been
able to get good negatives of rnro birds
which bopped about unconcernedly only
a fow feet from his lens.
Another favorite device Is to hang a
piece of burlap over a bush and lcavo
It tbcro for several weeks while on an
other expedition and then creep under
It and wait. Of course the camera
must lie arranged so that In snapping
It there Is no noise. The slightest sus
picious sound would spoil everything.
A NEW ORANGE TREE.
Botenists Hope to "Invent" One Thai

Ilotaulsts In the employ of tho Unit

hope to bring Into being an orange
tree which will be as sturdy ns tho ap

comes will yield fruit ns good as that

This may seem to lie an unnatural

A BEAUTIFUL MEMORIAL
Cincinnati Girl's Automatlo Device to
Water Ftowtra In Cemetery.
Miss Carrlo D. Jackson, 1301 Chapel
street, Cincinnati, who was bom and
reared in Dearborn county, Ind,
prompted by her love for her lato de
parted brother, Georgo W. Jackson,
and other inetnlicrs of her family now
resting In the family lot In Orecndnlo
cemetery, at Lawrcnreburg, Ind, de-
Ircl to erect something new nnd
icautlful to their memory. A happy
Idea catuo to her. Fhc would have a
largo vase cotislrnctcd, containing pots
f Dowers, and sot It In the confer of
Dower lied. Within the vase thero
should be a tank of water, which by
Its own automatic forco each day
would water the flowers In tho pots
nnd also tho flowers In tho bed planted
around tho font of tho vast.
Accordingly she went to work, cm
loved n mechanic, superintended tho
onstructlnn herself, and In n few-
weeks her Ideals were realized. Tho
original vnso may bo seen In (Jrecn
dilo cemetery. Tho tank has a capac
ity of nbont one-half barrel of wuter
nnd must bo filled evitry two weeks.
During tho heat of the day tho water
slowly drips from tho largo tank Into
n smaller one. ny evening tho small
tank Is filled, and by Its weight It
closes tho vulvea of tho largo tank
nnd opens the valve below, thua al
lowing tho wator to flow from It und
refresh the flowers during tho cool
hours of night. By morning the small
tank Is empty, and the weights lift It
nto p-islUM) again, the lower rnlcs
close the upper ones open, and the
tank fills as on the prmlous day.

ornamental design of her rasp nnd
Icrfects the mechanism ns she has
planned It will Ira a thing of beauty.
