The death of Sir John Moore at Co

fact in all the checkered history of the
peninsular war, for a good reason. There
are oets. like .Shenstone, whose fame
is secured by a single quatrain. Th»
poeti-al reputation of the Rev. Charles
Wolfe, who eight year? after the event
wrote "The Burial of Sir John Moore,"
rests on that one production alone. As
crrbed. before its author "s name be
came known, to s.ich well known poets
as Campbell and Byron, the poem took
firm hold of a cation's heart. Dying
of consumption at the early age of

10 INVITE CAPITALISTS
TO EXECUTION OF ELEVEN
Governor Hunt Charges That Corpora
tions Defeated the Ballot Against
Capital Punishment in Arisona and
Wants Them to See Executions
Phoenix. Ariz... Nov. 27. —Charg-
ing that corporations iu this State de
feared his anti-capital panishmeret bill
in the recent State election. Governor
Hunt has announced that all heads of
large enterprises in the State would re
ceive urgeut invitations to witness the
hanging of eleven men in December. He
said his guest list would include Walter
IVmglas, of Phelps. Dodge & Co.. New
York, and Colonel B> t *s Randolph, head
of Southern Pacific interests in Ari
zona and Mexico.
R. B. Sims, Warden of the peniten
tiary, who is commanded by law to con
duct personally every execution, was
reported several mouths ago as saying
he would resign his office rather than
l«rform such a duty.
The prison is at Florence, sixty
miles from here. When Sims was ques
tioned by telephone concerning this
staterneut and the preparations for the
execution of the eleven men sentenced
to death, he replied:
••It is too early to make preparations.
The executions do not octeur until De
cember 19. I have absolutely nothing
to say about any resignation. As soon
as necessary, I presume, preparations
will begin for killing the eleven men.
I do not know who will spring the
trap. The executions will be conducted
as provided for iu the 1913 Arisona
Asked if the condemned men knew
the result of the vote on the abolition
of capital punishment which will send
tiem to the gallows, the Warden said:
"I presume they do. They read the
papers. I don't notice any difference
in their actions. 1 have not discussed
their fate with them."
The statutes referred to say:
"A judgment of death must be ex
ecuted within the walls of the prison.
The superintendent of the prison where
the execution is to take place must be
present at the execution and must in
vite the treseuee oka physirign, the
Attorney General of* he State and at
least twelve reputable citizens to be
selected by hum; and he shall at the re
quest of the defendant permit such
clergymen, not exceeding two. as the
defendant may name, and anv persons,
relatives or friends, not to excee 1 five,
to be present at the execution, together
with such peace officers as he may think
expedient, to witness the execution.
"'Put no other persons than those
mentioned in this section can be pres
ent at The execution, nor can any
person under age be allowed to wit
ness the same."
Another section reads:
"After the execution the superin
tendent joust make a return upon the
death warrant to-the court bv which
the judgment was rendered, showing
the time, mode and manner in which
it was executed.''

U. 8. Geological Survey Has Been En
gaged In Systematic Study of Wa
ter Resources for the Last Eighteen
Washington, D. C„ Nov. 27.—For
the last eighteen years the U. S. Geo
olgieal Survey has been engaged in the
systematic study of water.resources of
the United States. The specific appro
priation for this work has ranged from
$12,500 to $200,000 a year. From
1903 to 190S the annual appropriation
was $200,000: since 1911 it has been
$150,000, but the demand for water
resources investigations has been stead
ily increasing and at the present tiu.e
twice the amount of the impropriation
could be profitably and economically
expended upon this class of engineering
In studying the water resources of
the country the volume of streams, the
location, extent and amount of uuder
ground water and the quality of water
are determined. A knowledge of un
derground water conditions in any sec
tion of the country is of general value
and is of very special use in the arid
and semi-arid portions of the West, for
iu many sections underground water is
the only source of water for domes:ic
use and for Irrigation purposes. The
amount of water flowing in a stream
at any place is determined from meas
urements made of the flow at different
stages or heights, in conjunction with
a record of the daily stage of the river.
With this information the daily flow of
a stream is easily computed.
Since the dow of a stream defends
primarily upon the amount of precipita
tion, which varies greatly from year to
year, it is evident that to be of value
records of the flow should be deter
mined for a number of years; that is.
at least 5 years up to about 10 to -0
years or even longer, depending upon
the stream, its location and the use to
be made of the stream. This data is
of primary value in all problems involv
ing the use or control of water for irri
gation. water power, flood control, mu
nicipal water supply and drainage.
There is no definite relation between
precipitation and the flow of streams,
so that stream flow can only be deter
mined with accuracy from actual roc
ords of the dailv flow.
In studying the water resources of
the United States the country has been
divided into 12 main natural drainage
basins. A report upon the stream flow
of each drainage basin is issued bv the
Geological Survey each year. Thus all
the stream-flow data during
1912 on streams which flow into the
Great bakes and St. Lawrence river
have been compiled by Kngiueers t.
Covert, A. H. Morton and W. G. Hovt,
in Water Supply Paper 324.
The total drainage area ot the at.
Lawrence river below the mouth of
the Oswegatchie river is approximately
383,000 square miles. Of this area,
95,600 square miles, or nearly 25 per
cent., is water surface. The area ot
Lake Superior is 32.100 square miles.
Excluding Lake St. Clair, Ontario is tho
smallest of the Great lakes, with an
area of 7.400 square miles. The mean
! annual flow of the St. Lawrence river
i at Ogdensburg is about 2.-2.000 sec
ond-feet, or cubic feet per second. I lie
mean annual flow of the Ohio river at
its mouth is about 300.000 second feet,
with a drainage area of 203.000 square
i miles. ~ , . „
Water-Supply Paper 3-4 contains all
the information collected during 1. 12
on streams in the St. Lawrence river
basin. Records of river stage and dis
charge, or river stage only, are given
| for some fifty odd gaging stations In
addition to the ordinary use made ot
: stream flow records, in water power,
water supply and flood control studies,
the data in "this report are of value in
studying the effect of the flow in the
' Chicago Drainage & Ship canal upon
■lie Great Lakes and also in studying
the pollution of the Great Lakes by

PATTERSON & COANE
CAN TURN BAY WINDOW INTO
If Pottod Plants Are Used They Can
Be Kept in a Much Larger Variety
Than by Using the Customary
* Washington, D. <\, Nov. 27.—Many
lovers of flowers who have not thv time
to bother with an indoor window-box,
enjoy keeping a number of pot tod
plants in the living room during the
winter. Some, in fact, have turned a
bay window into a small conservatory
or winter garden merely by an attrac
tive arrangement of plants in separate
pots. When a window-box is tilled, the
plunts must bo of the same general
character to be successful, but if one's
winter garden is made up of plants in
separate |K>ts a greater variety may be
kept, as each plant may receive dif
ferent treatment in the matter of light,
watering, soil, etc., and palms, rubber
plants, and cacti, which call for special
handling, may be added. Begonias, ivy,
smilax and aspidistra, all good plants
for indoor culture, demand more or less
the same treatment, as was explained
in a previous article sent out by the
United States Department of Agricul
ture, describing the indoor window-box.
Those who do not .have gardens would
do better to get potting soil of the
nearest florist for their potted plants.
Good potting soil may be prepared at
home but it usually takes considerable
care and forethought. Those willing to
take the trouble may prepare it by us
ing one part compost, one part good
loam and one part sand. The compost
should be cow manure luid good turf
rotted together for a year and turned
two or three times in the interim. Well
decomposed Joaf mould would answer
! as a partial substitute for tho compost.
[ One-twentieth part bone meal is a good
| addition to the mixture. If the loam
\ is very heavy, containing much clay,
j its proportion should be somewhat d'i
| minished. If the loam is light and
I sandy, reduce the amount of sand, or in
| some localities omit it altogether.
I Potted plants should be examined
j occasionally to see whether or not the
i plant requires repotting. This is done
!by holding the hands over the top of
the pot, inverting plant and all, tupping
the edge of the pot so as to loosen it,
then lifting the pot oft'. This cannot
j be done unless tfoa soil is moderately
i moist. If the ball of earth is com
| pletelv covered with roots, the plant
I should be put in a slightly larger pot
with new potting soil "firmed'' about
| the old ball of earth by "firming" with
j the fingers. Then wet thoroughly.
A housewife who desires a few pot
! ted plants but does not possess the reg
| ulation flower pots, niijy prepare tin
! cans that will be quite satisfactory. A

If geraniums are potted so that the
l root growth is restricted, ami if they
are kept fairly dry, they may be forced
I to bloom during the winter. Geraniums
: are attractive in the ordinary window

j box with the expectation that they will
; bear flowers.
Ferns as they come from the florists
j prepnred for indoor culture should be
i placed in a strong light, though they
| grow well without sunlight. They
should be watered sparingly but should
be kept at all times. Improper
; watering, .especially keeping the plant
soaked or permitting it to get dry, is
the foundation of most fern difficulties.
It is especially difficult not to overwater
when the fern is in a jardiniere, there
drainage is necessarily poor. In spring
and summer they will require three
times the water necessary in fall and
It is well occasionally to put them
in the bath tub and give them a bath
with weak soap suds made from a good
grade of soap. The soap must be thor
otjghly rinsed off immediately. Great
care must be exercised not to injure
, the fronds as they arc very tender.
: Mealy bug is one of the worst enemies
in house culture. This is a white wooly
, insect that works close to the bottom
lof the fronds. If found, the plant
should be examined every day and all
insects removed by a splint or tooth
pick. If the pest is very bad, cut off
all the top of the fern within an inch
of the ground, treat thoroughly each
i day till ail insects are exterminated
j when a new top can be grown.
Red spider is a minute sucking in
; sect that thrives in a dry atmosphere,
i It can be kept in check by spraying
! the top with clear water. In living
rooms this is frequently impracticable.
The next best thing is repeated baths.
The aphis or green fly is also eradicat
| ed by washing.
Ferns should bo fed once in two to
four weeks in the place of ordinary wa
tering with dilute nitrate of sodia, (a
i heaping teaspoonful to a quart of wa
ter) ammonia water (a teaspoonful of
ammonia to a quart) or manure leach
ings. Prepared plant food or a little
sprinkling of ground bone and wood
ashes also gives satisfaction.

ONCE AN ACTIVE VOLCANO
Bunker Hill, South of Jonestown. Hu
Nov. 27.—Bunker Hill,
south of the borough of Jonestown, is
the highest point of the trap rock hi'lls
and is of a very strange formation,
with abundant and immistnkablo evi
dence that it once was an active vol

flint, milky and crystallized quartz,
big and magnetic iron of 90 per cent,
copper, marble, coal and other varieties
of minerals are found. The formation
is a regular conglomeration, besidos iu
the volcanic-like there arc mineral
springs containing medical properties.
A singular cavern is also found in the
hill, but of late years was partly de
molished by taking stone from the hill
lor building and other purposes. it
is well know u by tradition through tho
successive generations from the early
settlers iu the beginning ot' the eight
eenth century, as told by the Indians,
who declared once to substantiate their
claim, produced large quantities of
valuable ores to make purchases from
the white people.
The prospecting was abandoned for
the time, with the hope that some
time the discovery would be by acci
dent, and it now appears to be the
case that an abundance of copper ore
of high percentage lias been discover
ed about a mile southeast of Jones
town, on the farm of David Brandt,
which place is a continuation of tho
Bunker Kill range of hills. The dis
covery was kept a secret until an
analysis of the ore was made and then
a company was organized to continue
the work and to make further develop
