V'" The greatest enterprise of inter
national importance, that has been pro
jected for many a year—the building of
a ship-canal across the Isthmus of Pan
ama-is being held up at present by the
Colombian Congress. They have fac
tions or parties there, as everywhere,
playing for position, but there is little
doubt that the gist of the matter is that
they want more money, both from the
United States and the French company
that yet holds the concession. The
completion of that canal would probably
increase our trade with the western
states of South America, and with the
eastern states of Asia, but as it wonld
be inimical to the interests of the great,
tians-continental railroad companies of
this country, opposition of all kinds
from all sources can be expected.
The American Nation seems to take
• great interest in the boat races, though
perhaps that interest is forced upon
Mifm by the spacioas accounts in the
dailies. These two boats are mere rac
ing machines, of no utility whatever;
E whereas the old "America," which won
the cup, was a stout, two-masted, sea
going schooner, capable of carrying con
siderable of a carg J, safely and swiftly
to any port on the planet.
The appearance of an American fleet
in a Turkish harbor will probably be
Ma object lesson to the Saltan's govern
ment, as to an offense against the Stars
and Stripes. In dealing with Turkey
this Nation has only to consult its own
interests, while the European powers
have to watch each other. England, for
instance is so determined that Russia
■hall not obtain a port on the Mediter
ranean that she has been protecting
Turkey for years, and the Massacres of
Christians in Macedonia proceed with
out punishment.
President Roosevelt over ruled Minis
ter Conger's recommendation for the
surrender of the Shanghai editors, and
they are yet under the protection of the
British and Japanese Consols.
These Shanghai editors are reformers;
that is they are men who perceive the
superiority of Western civilization, and
who understand that if the Chinese are
to prosper, if they are to retain their
place among the nations of the world,
they most get out of the ruts in which
they have been moying for centuries,
and bring their institutions up to date.
The Empress Dowager, who is still run
ning things at Pekin, bos no use for
men of that kind, wanted to get hold of
them, and made demands for their sur
render, which were were referred to the
Foreign Ministers at Pekin. Mr. Con

isters in the opinion that they ought to

THERE is a stray pragraph floating
thronh the air which attributes to Mr.
Carnegie the intention of devoting some
of his surplus wealth to the relief of wid
ows in distress. It is stated that he has ap
pointed a commission to investigate the
subject, and to report upon the advis
ability of including the relief of widows
among the objects of his beneficence.
THE way to have good roads is to
bnild them. Yon can't make them by
adopting long winded resolutions.—
Warren Mail.
Here is a pointer to Butler county
people who have for years been clamor
ing for good roads. If all the energy ex
pended in Bntler connty in public meet
ings and in the drafting of resolutions
and bills to be presented to the legisla
y . tare within the past three years cpnld
be collected and applied to road con
struction it would build a macadamized
thoroughfare of the latest improved
if , pattern several miles in length.
IT appears that the building of
bridges by the State is not in all cases
s tiifactory to the counties benefitted.
§| The State officials last week awarded a
e ntract for building a bridge at Au
burn, Schuylkill county, for $19,000.
The connty commisioners protest
against such an expenditure, on the
ground that the bridge will accommodate
o ly a few persons, whose property can
be bought for $12,000; and they propose
that the State buy tbe land at this price
a 1 turn it into a State forest, instead
of spending $19,000 for a bridge
THE Pennsylvania Railroad, in order
to provide for the future in the matter
of railroad ties, is about to engage ex
tra! vely in growing locust trees, and
all its available farm land along the
lines of the system adapted to such
purposes is to be planted with the trees
The company has for several years been
- experimenting with locust tree planting
at different points. It has gone about
it in a careful and scientific manner
and the results so far obtained warrant
undertaking the project on a broader
» and more extensive scale. Professor J.
\ T. Rothrock, State Commissioner of
Forestry, has been given complete
supervision of the work. He has made
a careful study of the matter, and no
place is selected by him for planting the
ff trees until after thorough investigation
as to its adaptability, both as to climatic
conditions and freedom from insects,
which, in certain sections, are said to
be a serious menace to these trees.
Dam-Burst and Flood.
A disastrous flood resulted from the
breaking of the Boydstown dam early
Friday morning Rain began falling
about Thursday noon and continued in
almost a steady downpour for about
twenty hours, the fall amounting to Si
inches. About midnight John Vogel.
Martin Heim and a Pittsburger who
were on a turtle fishing expedition to
Boydstown noticed that portions of the
dam had commenced to give way They
sent word to Butler. Snpt. Wright noti
fied Mayor Kennedy and about 4.30 A.
M., the fire whistle was sounded repeat
edly and those living in all the lower
sections of the towD were warned to va
cate their houses to escape the raging
About 2:30 A M. Frank Gormley and
Will Mcßride, who were driving home
from a well on which they are drilling
near Coylesville, drove into the water
which overflowed Kittanning street to
a depth of six feet, and their team, a
very fine span belonging to Gotxnly
were swept away and drowned. The
men managed to get to the Mcßride
home,where Isaiah L. Mcßaide and wife
From this point they were rescued bv
two men on a raft. The Mcßride family
had fled to the old Palm machine shop.
They also were rescued by the aid of a
big raft formed by two telegragh poles
and attached to a cable which was
pulled by Mayor Kennedy and fifty
men who had assembled to help him.
Daring the morning a Russian living
in the Glynn flats got too frisky with
the water and was swept out into the
current, another Russian tied a rope
about himself and swam after and
seized the drowning man, and they
were pulled ashore with the rope.
Thirty minutes bard work were nc-es
sary to resuscitate the man.
In the afternoon John W. Miller, a
riveter in the carworks, and three com
panions jumped into the abandoned
channel around the Vogeley island to
take a swim with their clothes on. They
entered the water at a point where a
large sewer pipe crosses the channel
The sewer pipe is used for a footwalk
ordinarily. Miller was a good swimmer
but he either took cramps or his feet be
came entangled in the roots of a tree,
and he went down His nearest com
panion, the only man in a position to
help him, fainted when he saw Miller
sinking. The body was recovered in
half an hour. Miller came to Butler
last May. He was 85 years of age. His
mother and brother live at Stoneyhill,
Missouri. He boarded with John De- j
fargey, also from Missouri, on Pillow
The dam washed out gradually or a
terrible dissaster would have occurred
First a row of stones on top went, then
by pieces and chunks until the bottom
was reached. The breech is about 140
feet long 26 feet (the heighth of the dam)
in depth. Practically the whole dam
will have to be rebuilt. In the mean
time there will be no shortage of water
A team of mules and a team of horses
in Cornelius Bros, and Kelly's lumber
yard stable were rescued by men wad
ding neck deep into the stable and
fastening ropes to the collars of the
horses: they were then pulled ashore.
Scores of rats were killed by boys
with clubs, stones and rifles at the gar
bage furnace after the rodents had been
driven out by the water.
For a week before the flood the creek
was filled with thousands of dead fish,
principally suckers and chubs. Some
of the were fully 18 inches in
length, and nearly every one was enr
prised at the number and size of our
slaughtered finny denizens. The com
mon report is that the fish were killed
by ammonia or some other chemical
drained into the creek from the ice-plant
of the brewery. People living along
the creek were almost driven from their
homes by the stench arising from the
decaying bodies and the matter became
a common nuisance.

WORD was received at Washington,
last Thursday, of the assassination of
the U. S. vice-Consul at Beyrnt, Syria,
and our European squadron was iintne
diately drdered to proceed to that har
bor, but the State Department received
word, Friday, that (hough an attempt
had been made on the Consul's life, he
had escaped. Disorder seems to reign
in Beirut, which is under Turkish do
minion, and our fleet will probably con

France, to that point, and scare the
Turks into behaving themselves.

Letter From the County Superin
Vacation days have rolled around.
School days are here again.
Next Monday morning the school
bells will call the bovs and girls back to
work I wish that I could emphasize
the importance of this call. I want to
say to the boys and girls of Butler
County that they have no other oppor
tunity so valuable, nor no other privi
lege so great as is to be found in our
public school system. Our great state
freely gives of her own money nearly
six millions of dollars every year and
says this is to help educate the boys and
girls, whether rich or poor, white or
black, exalted or lowly. And when she
goes one step further and says I expect
all children to attend these schools and
secure this education, she does the
wisest thing both for herself and forber
children. Any state which fails to do
this is courting her own downfall, be
cause progress and civilization rest up
on christian education.
Children need a better education to
day than every before. The world is
demanding from it's laborers more and
more every year. Harder tests, finer
work, more. advanced ideas are taking
the places of usefulness and we are
looking to our schools for all this
progress and improvement.
The day has passed by when main
strength takes the place of brains.
Culture wins, whilst ignorance loses.
It is with this fact before us that I
earnestly reque«t you school children to
do your verv best work this year in
school. Make it the best year you ever
attended. To do this you must start to
school at the first of the term and go
regularly to its close, for poor attend
ance kills the progress of any school.
Make up your mind at the first of the
term that you are in school to work,
that is what schools aim to teach.
"There is no excellence without great
I labor." It is work that counts every
where. Work begets discipline, disci
pline makes character, and character
makes the man everytime.
As the term advances, and your work
becomes hard for you and you think
your teacher is cross and demands too
much work, don t become discouraged,
but just brace up and remember that
'There are no gains without pains."
Teachers seldom scold without think
ing it is for your benefit to do so.
Pupils, be so polite and kind and obe
dient and diligent snd true, that
teachers will be ashamed to scold.
Boys and girls do your part well.
I Respect your teacher everytime. Obey
her commands, heed her advice, accept
her love, appreciate her interest in you,
show back your interest in her, do in all
school work as she directs, and I tell
you that your school days will then be
both pleasant and profitable.
Parents, we look to you for your kind
co-operation in this work.
It is for the benefit of your boys and
girls that our schools are maintained
I well know that at this time of the
year you need your children's help at
home, but I also know that your child
ren need to be in school In a few
more years they will be the men aud
the women upon whom will rest the
cares and the trials and the possibilities
of life.
Will they be ready for this work
awaitiug them if they have not had the
training? po yon want y<rur children to
go into life'unprepared and nnlearned,
or do yon not not rather daeire to have
them ready to think and to do!
"Knowledge is power and power in
strength." Send yonr children to
school that they may get this power and
strength even if yon can't Rive them
one acre of ground or one dollar when
yon are to pass away.
If your school is to prosper it must
have yonr sympathy, your support, and
your children.
Visit your school often and see what
is being done in it, aud what is not be
ing done. Why do parent# not visit
their schools of tener than they do? Who
will answer this? Is it not possible,
parent,to find one hour each year which
you can give to your school?
Try it this year and see if yon can
not do so The teachers want to see
you. They like to feel that they h;tve
some real friends too. Parents, meet
your teachers. Invite tbein into your
homes; interest yourselves in them, and
they will take au interest in yon.
It is also the parents' duty to help
discipline the school. This can be done
by the parent clearly teaching his child
ren that they must obey the teacher in
Urin««. Disobedience oobool
ought to mean disobedience at home.
A kind word from parent to child
along this line often prevents much
trouble in school work W« too
hear that old complaint of "partiality"
that charge that says, "he whips our
children for spite," or "because we are
That charge may.be true sometimes,
bnt certainly not often. Is it reasona
ble or natural to think that a teacher
would do this intentionally and thus in
sure their own failure'.' Is it not most
ly true that the socalled unjustly pun
ished child" is disobedient, or insolent,
or badly spoiled?
Teachers do make mistakes some
times but it is always a far more fatal
mistake for the parent to tell his child
ren so. This only invites more trouble.
The teacher's work is a difficult one.
The cares and the trials and the respous
'ibilities belonging to the work are
many. They need all the help and en
conragement we can give them. With
this a live, earnest teacher can do good
school work; but without it no teacher
can do herself nor her pupils justice.
"In union there is strength." With
this thought in mind I here kindly re
quest all officers and patrons of our
schools to give them yonr best and
truest service, and thus help along a
cause which may truly be called the
strong foundation of our government.
Yours very truly,

a 88-foot swath, and a complete thresh

with wheels 4* inches wide, on which
are ridges an inch and a half high It
can average three audahalf miles anhour

employed on the thresher. The grain is
threshed clean and finally carried to a

sacks have been filled they are allowed
to slide off the cart to the ground

Wonders of the
New Exposition
hlaborate Preparation* for an Enor
mous Attendance on Labor Day,
Honday, September 7th.
Night and (lay almost for ten months
past the NEW EXi'OSITION man
agement has been active in plan
ning for the coming reason of 46
days that begins on Wednesday,
September 2nd, and closes on Sat
urday. October 24
High musical possibilities hate practi
cally been exhaurtod at enormous
cost In the engagement of Crea
tore, tsousa. Vamroseh, the Fa-
Hettes and Vessel/a, together with
a dazzling array of instrumental
and vocal soloists. Eleven special
attractions have been sifted with
minutest care out of a heaped up
collection that desired entrance,
and only those selected that could
offer the largest measure of
amusement, entertainment and
ediflcatlon. Exhibits and displays
are all new and novel, numbering
150 all lold and representing an
Investment of $500,000.
Improvements and Innovations might
be tolled off at length, but suffi
cient is the statement that never
before in the 14 years of the EX
POSITION'S existence have pre
liminaries been so exactingly
worked out. nor the management
been so confident of the unquali
fied, even enthusiastic, approval
by its Surburban clientele, of re
sults achieved In their behalf.
Suburbanites will be accorded every
consideration that reason can dic
tate, liincn they have been the
EXPOSITION'S most loyal sup
porters. For their convmlence
th» mdronds will orranhc icgular
excursions each week at the one
fare rate, with prospects of special
excursions at intervals.
So much for general features of the
son But special object of this
article is to direct attention
to the fact that the EXPOSITION
will be in full swing on Labor
Day, Monday. September 7, with
Creatore , the volcanic wonder, as
musical attraction. If there were
nothing else to be seen or heard
in Pittsburg on Labor Day but
Creatore, time and money were
well expended In a trip to the
great Steel City. A Western Edi
tor, who had heard bands and or
chestras galore for 20 years, and
had been absolutely unmoved by
their music, consented reluctantly
with a friend to hear Creatore,
who so thrilled and stirred him
that he wrote these breezy de
scriptive words:
"Creatore starts the band In a mild,
entreating way. A simple uplift
ing of the arms. Then suddenly,
with a wild shake of his shaggy
head, he springs across the stage
with the ferocity of a wounded
lion. Crash! Bang! And a grand
volume of sound chokes the hall
from pit to dome. Then he dou
bles up like a question mark, and,
with glaring eyes and grating
teeth, with outstretched prompt
ing finger, he creeps stealthily
around, the very picture of hate
and malice personified. Suddenly
a wild leap Into the air, and with
his long hair standing straight
up, he lands stiff legged, like a
bucking bronco. Now he leans
over the row of music stands,
and smiles the smile of a lover—
pleading. supplicating, entreat
ing. caressing, with outstretched
hands, piercing the air with his
baton like a fencing master. Al
most to his knees, he bega, he
demands, he whirls around with
waving arms. He laughs, #he
cries, he sings, he hisses through
his clenched teeth. He foels the
m-.islc with every fibre. Now It
Is the rushing winds; now tbe
mad plunging of galloping horses;
now the booming of the surf on
the bleak rocks, and now the birds
singing In the treetops or the
sound of angel's wings. He
throws up his hands like an
Aztec at prayer. A wild burst of
melody and all Is over. He bows
and smiles, then goes behind the
seems and combs his hair."
Attendance upon a Creatore concert
with its soul-Htlrring, nerve-twang
ing music, will be a l.abor Day
Souvenir cherlshable for years to
expect to greet 30,000 visitors on
Labor Day, and will experience
sore dlsip|)olntraont If of this
number 15,000 are not its enthusi
astic Suburban friends.
