Roosevelt All Ready For
Powwow With Governor.
POLITICS WILL BE DISCUSSED.
Expectation That Plan Will Be Mapped
Out to Whip Rebellious Republican
Leader Who United Against
Direct Nominations Bill.
Oyster Bay, N. Y., July 12. Colonel
Roosevelt Is nwaltlng the arrival of
Governor Hughes, vfho Is to leave
New York this afternoon for Oyster
The unusual silence that lias sur
rounded Sagamore Hill for the past
few days will bo broken on the ar
rival of the governor.
If the governor falls to show up late
this afternoon the hitch In arrange
ments may he laid to some sudden
call which Hughes had not expected,
for the colonel announced that the
governor would be here without fall,
and the governor has also divulged
his plans. He will remain over night.
There is nothing mysterious about
this much talked of conference.
Neither Colonel Roosevelt nor Gov
ernor nughes has made any effort to
keep the meeting a secret It is
known positively that they will talk
politics, making a sweeping survey of
the state situation from one end to
the other. Since Mr. Roosevelt was
turned down by tho legislature nt
Albany on his endorsement of the di
rect nominations bill he has naturally
become more Interested in the propo
sition than he ever was before.
The visit of Collector Loeb to Bev
erly was discussed freely hero. Col
onel Koosevelt had nothing to sny con
cerning it, but it is generally believed
that tho colonel did not send Loeb out
to Burgess Tolnt to patch up anything
between him and President Taft, for
the colonel is not in the habit of work
ing in that manner. Ab a matter of
fact, the theory of a personal breach
between the president and the ex
president has been exploded so far as
Oyster Bay goes.
The possibility of Mr. Loco's seek
ing the nomination for governor on
the Republican ticket in New York
etate this fall is by no means laughed
at here. Loeb has not said that ho
doesn't want tho nomination and his
friend, the colonel, has kept quiet on
that score. It is known, however, that
Mr. Roosevelt would do what he can
to further the collector's interests in
the gubernatorial campaign provided
that others in authority take the boom
Just how far Governor Hughes and
the colonel will go in their discussion
of the state situation is of course un
certain. Prom their public acts, how
ever, it is not going too far to say
that they will map out a plan of some
sort to whip the Barnes-Wndsworth-"Woodruff
combination in the Saratoga
convention where the chief bone of
contention will be the direct nomina
tions program. The Hughes attitude
toward tho machine and bosses 1.
clearly deilncd. Roosevelt is all for
There is foundation for the talk that
the colonel will push himself into the
legislative graft investigation in New
York. He might, but he probably won't
There are plenty of other things just
now to which he must turn if he would
hold tho position that he set out to
hold, The state fight and the western
trip are suflicient even for him.
New York, July 12. Governor
Hughes, who left Albany by boat at 8
o'clock last night, arrived here at 8
o'clock tlds morning. He is attending
to private business in New York this
morning, and this afternoon will go to
Oyster Bay to remain over night
Cardinals' Pitcher In Trouble at St
Louis for Insubordination.
St Louis, July 12. Manager Bresna
hau has indellnitely suspended Titchei
Sallee for insubordination, and Rogei
also announced that Sulleo will never
pitch for the Cardinals again. Sallee
has once more wandered away from
the righteous path, and as it is his
fourth otfenso little sympathy is mani
fested other than he was considered
tho only regular winning twirler of the
homo team, uia downfall will seri

Governor Hughes In Dismissing Sheriff
Day Charges Makes It Clear That
Summary Action Will In
Future Be Taken.
Albany, N. Yn July .-Professional
baseball playing on Sunday must be

In this state or the sheriffs will be re
moved from office by Governor Hughes
on complaint of citizens.
This is a severe blow to many pro
fesslonal teams in this stnte which get
most of their revenue from the Sun
day baseball games. The question
came up before Governor Hughes on
the application of citizens of Chemung
county asking for the removal of Shcr
iff Day for falling to enforce sections
2140 and 2115 of the penal law prohib
iting public sports on Sunday, lnclnd

While the governor decides thai
Sheriff Day should have stopped these
baseball games on his own motion
without waiting for citizens to sweat
out warrants, he dismisses the charges
saying that they can bo renewed if thi

ARREST FOLLOWS SPECULATION
Trusted Louisville Man Alleged to
Have Stolen Nearly $500,000.
Louisville, July 12. As a result of
speculations In the stock market both
in the local bucket shops and in tho
brokerage houses of Chlcngo, New
York and other cities, August Ropkc,
assistant secretary of tho Fidelity
Trust company, the oldest and most
substantial trust company In Louis
ville, was nrrested on tho charge of
embezzling from tho bank, and it is
believed that when the cxiwrts who
are nt work on the looks of the insti
tution make their report n shortage of
nearly $500,000 will bo found.
Tho downfall of Ropke eomes as a
climax to spectacular bucket shop
operations originating in Louisville,
but later extending to many cities ami
extending over n jeriod from five to
eight years. That ho was not dis
covered until tho present is due to
tho fact that his luck for several years
prevented his being found out
While Robert W. Barr, Jr., president
of tho institution, will not Btato posi
tively tho truth of tho matter, it be
camo known that there is a probabil
ity that all tho bucket shops in tho
city will Ihj closed. Legal proceed
ings may lo Instituted shortly which
will end the operations of tho bucket
shops Jn the city.

DEW AS DRINK WATER.
Method of Collecting for Use of Sol
diers at Gibraltar.
Hitherto dew has been used as a
beverage only In poetry, by tho sun,
flowers, and butterflies. It had re
cently been robbed of all Its poetic
charactor by being used for the re
freshment of English soldiers.
The English administration at Gib
raltar, where wator Is vory scarce,
now collects dew by tho following
very simple method: A largo pit Is
dug In the earth and covered with
dry wood or straw, which In turn Is
covered either with earth or with
The straw or wood Bcrves as a heat
insulator and effectually prevents tho
conduction of heat from the ground
to the layer of earth or tho sheet Iron
nbove. Consequently this earth or
iron cools after sunset much more
rapidly than the ground, so that Its
temperature soon falls below tho dew
point of the surrounding air.
Hence dew Is formed upon tho iron
or the layer of earth In very largo
qunntltlcs. Tho water thus obtained
is drained oft into reservoirs and after
clarification Is used for drinking.
The increasing weight of wagons
in recent years has aroused the In
genuity of road-builders. Among the
different suggestions for improving
the two principal requirements of tho
modern road enduring strength and
absence of dust.
Nothing but iron is fitted to resist
the wear of tho electric and other
motor vans, and Iron incorporated
with cement Is now used on the high
ways of France. "Ferro-ceruenc" Is a
mixture of mortar (made of cement
and sand) and Iron shavings, known
in the French market aB "Iron straw"
(palllo do for). The iron so used is
in fine, regular, yarn-like threads
which, Immediately ufter they are
mixed In the liquid mass, contract a
molecular alliance w'tth the cement
When mixed the mass Is absolutely
homogeneous. The Iron filings are
made by a special machine, because
ordinary filings waste being Irregu
lar In form, could not be used. The
straws, or filings, must be regular and
free from grease mid dust.
This lron-cemont ("ferro-cement'')
promises to be the preferred road of
the age of the motor-wagon.
The government profits slightly by
the destruction Df stamps which have

A larger oource of irregular profit
lies In tho fnllure of bondholders to
present their 'bonds for redemption.
Unclaimed money In the Treasury due
to bondholders amounted to nearly a
million dollars in 1S61, and the sum
is much greater -now. Of a loan which
fell due in l'JOO a sum In excess of
$32,000 remains unclaimed. Over a
hundred thousand dollars are still un
paid of the five-per-cent. bonds which
were due In 1904. In 1907 over a
hundred million thirty-year four-percent
bonds came due on July 1st
Special Inducements were offered to
secure early redemption, yet at the
end of that month thirteen million
dollars still stood In the Treasury on
that account, although Interest had
How Flying-fish Fly.
Flying-fish must have been watched
ever since the first mariners ventured
upon the sea, and yet the question of
tho ' manner In which they perform
their flights Is apparently unsettled.
Dr. Abel, nn eminent Austrlnn au
thority, maintains that the initial im
petus by means of which they launch
themselves is duo to screw-like move
ments of tho tail fin, and that the
wings are In no sense propelling or
gans, but act simply as parachutes.
It Is maintained by other observers
that the flight of flying-fishes is due
to incessant and extremely rapid
movements of their wing-like fins. It
has been suggested that there may be
differences In the manner of flight of
different species of fish, and that con
sequently there may be truth In both
The Brave Knights of Old.
The human raco Is not physically
deteriorating. The quotation, "Wo
are growing weaker and wiser," Is
only a partial truth. We are certainly
growing wiser, and we are as certainly
not growing weaker. Tho human ani
mal is moro robust and powerful to
day than over, capable of greator
strength and endurance. It has been
demonstrated many times that the
famous knights of chivalry, tho tales
of whoso prowess make tho blood tin
glo, were smaller and weaker than
tho men of tho present time. The
averago man of to-day cannot got Into
tho armor of the old Crusader. His
body is bigger and more powerful than
was that of the man of old.
Had a Sure Thing.
An Individual, well known on the
Berlin Bourse for his wit, one morn
morning wagorcd that ho would ask
tho same quostlon of 50 different per
sons and recolvo tho same answer
from oach. Tho wjt went to first ono
and thon another, until ho had reach
ed tho number of 50. And this is
how ho won tho hot: He whispered
half audibly to each: "I say, hnvo
you heard that Meyer has failed?"
"What Meyer?" queried tho wholo 50,
one after another, and It was doclded
that tho bet had been fairly won.

AT HOME WITH THE ANTS.
, Industrious Insects Shelter Many
! Ono of the most remarkable tilings
In tho economy of the ant's nest is
the number of extraneous nnlmala
which pick up a living theroln. Some
of these, as tho aphides, are useful to
tho ants, supplying them with n sweot
Juice, while others, like certain blind
beetles, Fcom to be pots. Others seem
to be uaclosu, and only tolerated by
their hosts, who cannot get rid of
them. Of the latter class appear to
bo the nnMovlng crickets (Myrme
cophila) found in ants' nets all over
An account of the life history of
these ant-crickets Is given by F.
Scltlmtner In a German zoological pub
lication. They get their food by lick
ing tho ants, robbing those roturnlng
to tho nests with food, or the newly
fed larvae. Sometimes they arc ac
tually fed by the nnts. There Is prob
ably some deception In this, for they
have lcarnod to imitate the ants' meth
od of demanding food. The ant does
It by raising tho antennae, and the
cricket Imitates this by raising Its
forelegs. Probably the ant whose
duty It Is to feed tho others v.-lipn Miey
raise their antennae Is deceived by
the raised forelegs of tho cricket
These crickets lay their eggs and tho
young are reared in the ants' nests.
Disuse of the Sword.
Mahon in his "History of England"
remnrks;thnt the ums of the sword as
part of a gentleman's attiro now out
of fashion, wua a constant temptation
to draw tho sword on a sudden quar
rel. He cites tho duel between Lord
Uyron and Mr. Chandler In 17C5, re
sulting in the death of the latter, as
an example. The same is doubtless
true of groups of men or nations,
where the army and navy are ready
at hand, they may be used on a sud
den impulse, nnd must be used now
and then to prove their right to ex
ist Tho argument for simultaneous
and proportional disarmament Is not,
therefore, the pics, of extreme peace
men, but a reasonable and common
sense view of the issue. Let each na
tion keep order in its own territory,
and let the nations make a trust to
keep International areas in good
working order. Thus an international
army and navy may supersede the
present competitive armies and navies
to tho great advantage of all The
Putting Ants to WorK.
In Burmah and the Far East they
have a curious fashion of setting ants
to work. Sandalwood, as we know.
Is worth Its weight in silver, "but it is
only the hard heart of the wood that
is fragrant and valuable. This preci
ous portion Is overlaid by a soft nnd
worthless layer, which forms two
thirds of the trunk of the tree. When
a tree Is felled and cut Into suitable
lengths, the logpsrs just let It lie.
Then the ants, attracted by the sweet
nees of the wood, attack tie dhunks.
Within n few weeks the little Insects
have finished their work, and the valu
able heart of the wood is freed of its
worthless sappy covering and becomes
a valuable arjir.le.it comnri
