Republican Nominee For Gubernatorla
Honors Greeted Everywhere by Im
mense Audiences.
A dispatch from Chnrlorol, tho horn
town of John K. Tenor, tolls of tin
quick action of tho nolghbors of thi
Republican nominee for governor, fol
lowing the Journalistic attacks made
upon him, In oxprosslng their absoluW
faith and confidence In blm and tboli
intorest In his candidacy.
For twenty yoara John Tener hai
been doing business In his communl
ty, and never In all that tlmo has h(
been accused of doing any person oul
of a penny. Ho Is connected with a
number of business venturos In fact
with everything that goes to make ui
tho Industrial Ufa of that section. Nat
urally there aro somo who dp not agre
with everything ho does, but no one
doubts that he is open and above board
in all his actions and thoroughly hon
est. Tho manner in which he has mel
his nccusors is the action of an hon
est man. "I have nothing to conceal;
I court Investigation of my every ac
tlon, private or political," ho says.
Dozens of persons In Charlerol and
tho surrounding towns who, before tht
publication of this malicious yarn,
were either considering tho voting ol
somo other ticket or at least luke
warm in tho matter, have expressod
themselves In no uncertain mannoi
since it came out. Recognizing It foi
what It is, a political canard of the
first water, they are now unqualifiedly
for Tenor and the whole Republlcab
ticket. They have no use for "reform
ers" who stoop to such despicable
Last week was held tho regulat
monthly meeting of the Charlerol Bus
iness Men's association, of which Mr.
Tenor Is a member.
This organization is composed of all
of Charleroi's progressive, hustling
merchants, manufacturers and busi
ness men generally. Its president is a
man formerly lined up with the antl
Toner faction in Washington county
Much of tho hustling In behalf of Mr
Tener before tho State convention was
done by tho association. And now it
comes out unequivocally for him In a
set of resolutions drafted by a com
mittee composed of John B. Schaffer
John H. Bowers and William Kirk.
Business Men Speak Out.
Following aro tho resolutions, adopt

Mr. Wcllman's airship has been blown
out of Uie North Atlantic steamship
lane, the course which It had been the
Intention of Mr. Wellnian to follow.
Wcllmnn said Just before he soiled
that he would start back for Atlantic
City the moment that his men decid
ed that the voyage to Europe was im
practicable. Leroy Chamberlain, Wal
ter Wcllman's son-in-law, snys:
"So far as wo can make out by study
of tho maps and charts which we
have tho America has reached a point
where it can be decided whether there
Is a chance to reach Europe. It is nl
most safe to say that this decision Is
being reached now or will be reached
within the next few hours by the men
aboard tho America."
Wellman nsked President Salus of
tho Atlantic City syndicate tbnt Is
backing tho adventure to keep the
Americn's hangar up and ready for
him. Lots of persons along the board
walk and around the hotels were bet
ting that Wellman will reach the
hangar before he does Europe.
If tho America is still sailing she
has beaten all records for continuous
flight of dirigibles, possibly all records
for endurance by gns bags.
Count Zeppelin on May 31, 1900, sail
ed his dirigible thirty-seven hours from
Frledrlchshafeu to Bltterfeld and re

Berlin, Oct. 18. German aeronauts
regard tho attempt of Walter Wellman
to cross the Atlantic in tho airship
America as a foolhardy and even crim

aeronaut, to sail In an nlrshlp from
Cape do Verde to the West Indies,
which, it is now stated, will be car

Words of Strength.

Threo words as with a burning pen,
In tracing of eternal ljght
Upon the hearts of men.
Have hope! Though clouds environ nov
And Gladness hides her face In scorn,
Put Ihou the shadow from thy brow.
No night but has Its morn.
Have faith! Where'er thy bark bo drlv
The calm's disport, the tempest's mirth
Know this: God rules tho hosts of heaven.
The Inhabitants of earth.
Have love I Not love alone for me.
But man as man thy brother call
And scatter like the circling sun
Thy charities on nil.
Thus grave these words upon thy soul
Hope, faith and love and thou Shalt
Strength when life's surges rudest roll.
Light when thou else were blind.
Too Hot to Put on Paper.
When Mr. Carnegie started In the
steel business he was resolved to re
duce the appalling accidents Incidental
to tho work. And ho was very suc
cessful In executing this resolve. A
part of his success wns due, no doubt,
to tho blank slips that every foreman
had to fill up when one of his handu
got hurt. A certain workman had ono
day the bad luck to suffer a slight ac
cident. His foreman, an illiterate but
honest chap, filled out promptly the
slip which Is now preserved at Sklbo.
Tho slip ran:
"Date-March 5, 18S0.
"Name James Miles.
"Nature of accident Too crushed.
"How caused Oxdentlo blow from

"Remarks These was awful. I will

A New York lawyer who employu

On one occasion his wife was suffer

and, thinking perhnps his voice might
6ootho her to sleep, she asked him to
read aloud to her, which he did as the
colored maid went back and forth
nbout tho room setting things in order
for the night.
Presently the mn!d quietly withdrew
to tho kitchen below, where the old
cook, Aunt Phyllis, wns awaiting her.
"Mr. Alex sho' is a good man," said
the maid. "He settin' up dar readln'
de Bible to Miss Alice, an' she sick."
"Go on, chile," answered Aunt Phyl
lis; "don' yo' know Mr. Alex alu' read

On the lino of the Missouri Paclflc
railway, Just over In Okluhonia from
Coffeyvllle, Kan., Is n small place call
ed Nowatta. A state law In Kansas
prohibits tho carrying by the railroads
of public drinking cups on trains. Not
long ngo a farmer from Iowa, on u
Missouri Pacific train lit Kansas near
Coffeyvllle, wanted a drink of water.
He did not know nbout tho lnw. Going
to tho water cooler, ho began looking
for tho cup. When he fulled to find
it ho sought the chair cur porter, a
negro, and asked for it.
"Law donn 'low no public cups on
deso heah trains," said tho porter.
Tho Iowan was deeply disgusted. He
returned to his scat nnd grumbled until
tho train crossed tho Oklahoma-Kaunas
line. Shortly nfter that tho negro
porter stuck his head in tho door.
"Nowatta!" he called.
That Increased tho Iowan's disgust.
"In Kansas they don't havo no drink
In' cups," ho said to tho man In tho
next seat, "an" In Oklahoma no water

Their Activity Insures Fertilization of
Blossoms and Flowers.
Bcokcoplng la a valuable aid in tho
cultivation of fruit and seed crops. In
flects which food on nectar play an
Important part In tho fertilization of
flowers. Fertilization Is effected In
other ways, but tho agency of Insects
is tho moro certain nnd offlcnclous,
nnd no other lnsoct Is compnrablo
with the honoy bco In this rospoct. A
strong. hlvo contains 10,000 boos In
February, 1G.O00 In March, 40,000 In
April, and from 60,000 to 80,000 in
May. It haa been discovered by
skillful obsorvors that tho average
load of noctax carried to the hive by
a boo Is about 3-10 of a grain, so that
the collection of one pound of nectar
requires nearly 23,000 foraging excur
sions. By means of hives sot on bal
ances It has been found that tho dally
increase of wolght In May averages
S.8 pounds. Occasionally moro than
11 pounds is gained In one day, and
when the amount consumed by tho
beos and tho loss of weight by evapo
ration aro considered, It appears prob
able that tho average dally quantity of
nectar collected Is not less than 11
pounds, which would load 250,000
bees. As a beo visits ten flowers on
the average in collecting a single
load somo 2,500,000 flowers visited
In ono day by the bees of a single
hive. An additional largo number of
visits is required for the collection of
pollen. Those figures explain why
many trees and plants bear small
crops in the absence of bees.
Food for Winter.
No colony should ho considered
safe unless It has stored in the combs
at least 25 pounds of honey or syrup
and sealed most of It over. The ar
rangement of this food Is a matter of
some importance, for if tho boos are
crowded upon a few frames and fed
liberally they will fill every avallablo
cell with syrup, and then thoy will be
compelled to cluster during tho win
ter upon sealed combs Instead of
upon empty cells, as Is mora natural,
nnd having stores abovo and around.
With tho movable comb hive tho ar
rangement of the combs for winter in,
in the hands of a good boe-keoper, a
simple matter; but if feeding Is con
tinued up to the middle of September,
and the propor amount of food Is then
given, the bees will arrange It around
tho brood, which gradually diminishes
by the bees hatching, accessible for
their comfort and convenience. If the
combs are arranged by tho bee-keeper,
tho center ones should havo seal
ed stores about halt way down, tho
amount of stores increasing to tho
outside of tho brood nest During tho
winter bees cluster below qulto a por
tion of the stores, therefore by keep
ing tho honey warm, and of easy ac
cess the most compact form and nor
mal cluster can bo maintained.
Protection for Lifting Combs.
An expert may open a hlvo with
out smoko and without danger, nnd
may hnndlo tho combs and return
them to tho hlvo without getting a
single sting by being quiet, steady and
fearless. It Is a fact that the fear
less apiarist may often be entirely
unharmed whllo others a rod away
may bo stung by tho very bees which
his manipulations anger. His quiet,
determined domeanor Is his safeguard,
whllo tho uninitiated strikes at tho
angry bee and dances till ho Is stung.
When you wish to open a hlvo of beos,
If you wish to bo perfectly safe arm
yourself with a smoker, cover your
head with a veil and step boldly to tho
front of the hlvo; send smoke through
the opening for half a minute, then
stop, and ropeat the operation nfter
another half mlnuto, or until they
mako a steady hum, which will show
that they have given up the dcslro to
fight Then open tho hlvo, smoko
again gently, and you may lift tho
combs ono after another.
Forced Swarming.
Ever slnco wo first kept bee3 wo
havo practiced forced swarming moro
or loss. Without yards wo havo boon
compelled to take tho matter In our
own hands, and wo find, that tho near
er we can koop to nature's methods
and at the same tlmo accomplish our
purposes tho better. Instead of driv
ing we find with movable combs that
it is moro convenient to shake, taking
some pains to havo the bees fill them
selves with honoy and also to leavo al
ways enough boos with the brood to
protect It One great drawback to tho
ordinary method of brushing and
shaking swarms is that largo numbers
of tho bees, instead of entering tho
now hive on tho homo stand, will tnko
wing and Join themselves to other
colonies In tho yard.
Work In the Apiary.
Shut weak colonlos in tho brood
chamber In tho lato fall, writes T. M.
Barton, and bo euro that thoy havo
twenty-flvo pounds of honoy to supply
them until honey comos next spring.
Sometimes thero is much brood In
tho combs and not as much honoy as
you suppose. For good averago col
onlos, I usually givo a part of tho first
supper, taking out a few frames on
either sldo and filling tho spaces with
old clothes and papers. When tho
been are shut down in tho brood
chamber, a few curved pieces of light
barrel staves should bo placed over
the tops of tho frames, so that tho
bees may frooly pass over thorn,
