"Will you please write me what Is

Thus wrote a man of Marietta,
Pa., to which State Zoologist Sur
face replied as follows:
"The potato leaves that you sent
to us show the chief injury to be the
flea beetles, and, next, what is known
as the early blight. The preventive
would have been to have sprayed
with Bordeaux mixture and arsenate
of lead. Even yet It is not too late
to prevent further damage from
these causes. Use three pounds of
bluestone and four pounds of lime
In 50 gallons of water, and to this
add from two to three pounds of
arsenate of lead or one-half pound
of Paris green. Spray thoroughly
and whenever It washes off by hard
rain, or once every two or three
weeks. If the arsenate of lead Is
used it need be repeated as often as
in using Paris green. This will also
poison the leaves so that the potato
beetle will not attack them."
LESSON FOR HOYS FROM FIGHT.
The story of tho Jeffries-Johnson
fight is a great one for the Ameri
can boy: And don't you forget it
that every American boy not the
mollycoddle, of course read that
graphic story, chronicled In every
sheet In the land, bulletined at every
telegraph and newspaper office and
narrated at every fireside.
Now there is agitation against the
moving pictures, but it will not be a
harm for every American boy In the
land to see tho moving pictures of
that great battle if he reads the les
son in them right. That lesson, as
we see it, is of great Importance to
every boy of strength of character,
mind nnd soul.
Jeffries was a magnificent brute.
Doctors who examined him declared,
and still stick to their statement, that
they never saw so perfect a man.
He himself declared that ho never
felt better or stronger or more cap
able of greater endurance. He was
physically capable of any undertak
Ho was not mentally strong.
He allowed a race prejudice to
work himself into a frenzy that
knew no reason and mado him as low
as the carnivorous brute. That's
pretty hard on tho Idol for a year
of the American people! But isn't
He got grouchy and gloomy and
downright ugly to his advisers. He
wanted no advice. His own thoughts
fought him to a finish before the
light began. He was licked before
ho entered tho ring. Ho had worked
himself up to such a pitch that ho
was a victim of mental torture.
His power of mind failed him.
Dark clouds passed over his brain
and that magnificent tower of hu
man strength, 220 pounds of perfect
development, swung a pair of fists
wildly and wabbled and floundered
becauso it was without a pilot to
steer It in tho right direction.
Mental poise and calmness and
good steady habits always are good
training for a pugilist. They aro
tho only thing for tho American
boy. Editorial In Allentown Morn

Attorney S. B. Price of Scranton
In a letter to tho secretary of tho
Democratic stato committee has for
mally refused to accept tho nomina
tion for lieutenant-governor tender
ed at tho Allentown convention.
The resignation will bo acted on at
n meeting of the committee July 20
nt the capltol.
Mr. Prlco to comply with tho law
has also filed his expense account at
Harrlsburg. It shows ho spent less
than $50, in fact, spent nothing, to
bo named one of tho Democratic nom
inees. Ho stated positively tho day
of the convention thnt he would not
be a candidate and ho litis not
changed his mind since.
All tho Republican stato candi
dates hnve filed accounts, In which
they ench say their expense did not
exceed $50. Mr. Price is tho only
Democrat to file an nccount.
ACTRESSES OF TODAY.
Elslo Ferguson's name Is upon the
Hps ot every stnge-struck girl these
midsummer dnys, and her story, as
told In Human Life for July, Is one
of the moBt interesting that hns ap
peared in the series entitled "Act
resses of Today."
Of all tho apparently sudden rises
to fame, hers wns the most spectac
ular. We say apparently, becauso
rises on nny plane of life nrc never
really sudden. The public knows
nothing of the years of preparation.
They see only the finish of the rise.
All this is mado very clear In the
compelling story of Miss Ferguson's
life, starting with the time when, at
her father's death, she found herself
without money or Influential friends
and obliged to face this much-abused
old world and earn its buffets or re
wards. Her family, in solemn con
clave, decided that she should be
come a school-ma'am. So they
bundled her off to a normal school.
But right here Fate gave a new
shuffle to the cards and dealt the
little embryo star, whose whole soul
even then was wrapped up In the
mimic world behind the footlights, a
trump hand. What followed was all
very unusual and romantic, and
seems to dovetail fittingly Into the
kaleidoscopic changes of her profes
Miss Ferguson's philosophy of
clothes is so simple and so practi
cal as to fit perfectly the needs of
the everyday women, even though
stars are supposed to be garbed far
above the heights to which ordinary
mortals may aspire.

ton. A Remarkable Spring.
One of the most remarkable springs
in the world, says J. A. Eddy, In the
Engineering and Mining Journnl, has
recently been discovered in New Mexi
co. It is literally a spring saturated
with sodium sulphate. Distilled wa
ter weighs 8 1-3 pounds per gallon;
tho water of this spring weighs 10 2-3
pounds. The temperature of tho
spring is a little over 110 degrees
Fahrenheit. As the saturated liquid
overflows and cools, it forms a crystal
line mass like Ice, which, in the course
of ages, has spread Into a snow-white
bed of Bolld sodium salts, miles In ex
tent, and as level as a lake. The warm
brine, Mr. Eddy reports, is inhabited
by a minute shrimp-like organism, and
a species of plant Is found growing
in the dry expanse of sodium sul
phate. A Wonderful Eye.
Recent studies of the skulls of the
morosaurus, the diplodocus, and other
species of the extinct gigantic ani
mals called tho eauropoda, have
brought out the fact that In several
of these creatures, although perhaps
not In all species, there existed on
the top of the skull a well-defined
tubular opening, smoothly lined with
bone, and leading directly down into
tho cerebral cavity. Professor Osborn
regards it as probable that in this
opening was lodged a large pineal,
that Is, cone-shaped, eye, an organ
tho exlstenco of which was left prob
lematical by the researches of the
late Professor Marsh. In a recently
restored skull of tho morosaurus tho
orbits are of enormous size.

"Tandem Polygamy," the term used
by tho Rev. Dr. Parkhurst In referring
to some of our prominent society wom
en, la apt enough to find a place In tho
lnngungo; but a scientific man, with
an oyo to accuracy, would prefer to
call It "progressive polyandry," al
though "progressive polyandry" would
drive the nvcrnge man to tho diction

Polyandry Is still practised by
tribes in Thibet, parts of Indln nnd
the Pacific Islands. It Is n atyle of

munities where there Is a surplus of
men; In other words, In this form of

under this arrangement Is not
clenr, but many primitive tribes re
tain tho mother-in-law taboo, which ab
solutely forbids, under many and dire
penalties, the wife or husband to
speak to or even to look at tho mother-in-law.
This old-time practise is still fol
lowed rigidly by the Navajo Indians,
in Arizona, who are polygamlats. Some
arrangement of the kind seems to be
regarded as necessary by primitive
The bride Is no doubt tho most
popular young lndy that this city pos
sessed and ever will have the honor
of possessing. She is a very amiable
young lady possessing many traits of
sterling quality and characteristic
which made her a very charming
bride. Her friends are numbered by
the many, not only here, but all over
Southern Illinois, who laud this young
lndy In the very highest manner possi
ble. Words cannot speak too highly
for this estimable, happy bride. Their
romance started when the happy
bride was employed as teacher
in the public school In the city
of Boston and soon friendship
ripened to love and through ardent at

charming bride Du Quoin has offered
in many a year which no doubt the
