RICH SIBERIAN CROPS.
No Roltglon Mo.-e Capable of Produo
Ing Human Food.
Though the name of Siberia la still
popularly accepted as a synonym for
all that is Arctic and sterile, says the
London Olobe, it is becoming clearer
every year that few regions of the
earth are more capable of producing
Immense stores of human food. This
year, in particular, when the crops
over much of European Russia have
failed, the richness of the Siberian
lands has been extremely conspicuous,
and there is surplus produce in vast
abundance, the only difficulty being
the inadequate means of transport
With a virgin soil and a far more ac
tive and independent Russian popula
tion than is to be found in most parts
of Russia Itself, there Is no doubt
that a great agricultural future should
await this enormous region.
Another Artificial Fertilizer.
The success attained In Norway by
the electrothermlc process for the
fixation of atmospheric nitrogen in
the form of nitric acid, which Is after
ward converted Into calcium nitrate
and used as a fertilizer In place of
Chile saltpeter, has been followed by
the development of another method of
living atmospheric nitrogen by pass
ing It over heated calcium carbld. The
product is called cyanamid in the
market "nitrollm" and experiment
shows that when placed in the soli it
decomposes and furnishes nitrogen to
plants. At present cyanamlu Is pro
duced on an industrial scale at Odda
in Norway, at Piano d'Orta In Italy,
at Notre Dame de Briancon in France,
at Westergeln and Bruhl in Germany,
and large plants are being established
at Almlssa in Austria-Hungary, and
at Niagara Falls in Canada.
A Llghtless Lighthouse.

The prism derives its light from re

lighthouse, and the optical delusion
is marvellous. Mariners naturally
suppose that there is a lighted lamp
on the beacon Itself, and many of
them will not believe otherwise. But

Sir James Ross in the course of
his travels noted a curious fact with
regard to the penguin, namely the
habit of swallowing stones. In one
specimen he found ten pounds weight
of quartz, granite and trap. Other
animals, reptiles, fishes and mammals
exhibit the same strange fancy. In a
paper contributed to the proceedings 1
of the Bristol Naturalists' Society, W . I
H. Wicks has collected a number of
facts connected with such stomach
stones. The fact noted by Mr. Wicks
that the pebbles are usually white

of Koul What tho Ban
queters Ate and ,
the Speakers Said.
The Honesdale Business Men's Asso
ciation held their annual banquet nt
Hotel Heuniann on Tuesday evening,
May 11th. The affair proved most suc
cessful and enjoyable, much of the suc
cess being due to the cfllcicncy of the
committee in charge, Frank Schuerholz,
N. B. Spencer and William Penwarden.
The large dining room presented a
very beautiful appearance. The dining
hall and tables were profusely decorated
with palms and ferns, and at each per
son's place was placed a red carnation.
The music during the evening wai fur
nished by O'Brien's orchestra.
Proprietor Hcumann had prepared
the following menu for the banquet.
Blue Points on Half-Shell
Celery Olives Radishes
Blue Fish Bermuda Potatoes
Mashed Potatoes Green Peas Salad
Ice Cream Cake Fruit
After the supper was finished, N. 15.
Spencer, secretary! f the organization,
after a brief address, happily introduced
Burgess Hon. John Kuhbach, who ex
pressed his pleasure nt meeting with such
a gathering of our citizens, and con
gratulated the business men of the As
sociation upon their success. He claim
ed that the business man does more for
his country than anyone else, he being
practically "the man behind the gun."
Every other class needs his help and as
sistance and upon him the prosperity of
the country depends. The next speake
was State organizer, I!. W. Hittciihoiisc,
of Seranton. He recalled the fact that
vears ago he was called to Honesdale to
assist in the organization of a Business
''"' Association, and on arriving here
wan greeted bv twelve discouraged in-
i. ...i ....l , i. ,lw.
dividuals who wanted to postpone the
business, but after a talk with them he
persuaded them to go ahead with the
work. A number ol the associations in
the country which were organized in
this manner, now have large member
ships. In our large cities, some of the
organizations whose admission fee was
originally one dollar lum- increased the
charge to lilty dollars, and a person to
get in must be of approved character.
An association can accomplish nothing
beneficial if all do not do their duty.
All members ideas cannot be alike, but
they should get together and think
alike. There never was a man in busi
ness yet, but could learn something,
especially from an organization of this
kind, and the men who help make a
good organization are the men who
work hand in hand. Members should
attend their regular meetings. In some
towns a business men's meeting would
empty the show houses. Work for the
interests of your organization. Every
body sees benefits in organizing men
like Mitchell and railroad men and
manufacturers. The best organization
in the world is that of the Locomotive

Then he urged the members to get to
gether attend their meetings, and send
delegates to the next state convention.
It will repay the effort put forth. The
representatives will come home witli
new ideas, and work with renewed
vigor for your interests.
W. W. Wood, who was next intro
duced, made a few pertinent remarks,
after which; the Rev. Dr. W. F. Hopp,
gave a very pleasing address in which
he emphasized the advantages accruing
from men being united in every phase
of life's activities. He dwelt forcibly
upon the beauty of helping each other
in business, and advocated very earnest
ly the observance of Sunday as a day
of rest from labor, claiming that it
could be profitably spent in looking af
ter one's spiritual interests; and in this
connection extending an invitation to
all who were not engaged elsewhere to
attend his Sabbath services.

Spencer, the parting "Good night"
