also to present a record In American
crop growing five to eight crops of al
falfa produced a year on tho same soil.
In the Arizona exhibit thero will be
ulmonds nnd dates. Arizona is now
commencing to rival tho orient In
these products. Almost equally Inter
esting will be tho Florida exhibit.
Florida was long celebrated for her
oranges, but now this state has some
thing In which she takes a far great
er pride her paper shell pecans. Ex
perts say that tho pecan industry re
turns the largest yield of' any product
of tho soil. Some growers get as much
as 700 or 800 pounds of nuts from a
Tho California exhibit will be one
of the most noteworthy of all, for tho
California development board has ar
ranged to make a very full and com

creations of Luther Burbank. Among
the wonders accomplished by him
there will be presented for tho first
time his white and thornless black
berries nnd a special exhibit of 500
varieties of apples produced from n
single tree. Other Burbank prodigies
of plant .breeding that will be shown
are grass trees, new rubber plants, the
pomato (a cross between tho potato
and tomato that has been much talk

vegetable product of the west that
Burbank has made through his great
skill a food that is designed to afford

Alaska Is another section of the
United States that sees in this big ex
position many possibilities of pushing
her interests. Her commercial clubs
and her railway men have combined
their forces nnd will send to the New
York land show products that are cer
tain to arouse widespread attention.
Alaska's agricultural resources are, to
say the least, scanty. Such as they
are, they will bo presented, but with
them will bo shown the other things
that make Alaska n force and a com
ing great power in the national com
munity of states. Chief of these ex
hibits will be $100,000 worth of gold
dust. This will bo shown in a gold
cago and kept under constant guurd
while on exhibition. There will be
also a large picturesque display of
totem poles, Cbllkoot blankets, coal,
copper and gold nuggets.
The exposition will have a fine ap
ple exhibit. President Bachelder of
the national grange nnd former gov
ernor of New Hampshire, said Jocular
ly at a recent meeting of tho commls
slonors of agriculturo of the New Eng

other state of tho Union in npples.
This claim will bo contested vigor
ously at the land show. Not only will
there be famous apples from New
Hampshire, but apples from-Canada,
Virginia and Arkansas, from Oregon,
Washington and Colorado. There will
be spirited rivalry on tho part of the
Northern Spy. the Spltzenburgs and
Jonathans and the Northern Pippins.
Thero Is to be n prize irrigation ode
honoring the science and- practice of
agriculture. It will bo sung by 200
voices. There aro to be many other

FIRST MOVES FOR THE
CAMPAIGN OF 1912.
National Committees Will Meet li
Washington In December. ,
When the Republican national com
.Mtteo meets in Washington on Dei
12 to fix tho time nnd placo for the
holding of tho Republican national
convention next year, the committee
men will also bo called upon to meet
(ho demand of the National Progres
sive Republican league that the direct
rote system bo officially adopted as
the method of choosing delegates to
tho convention. Whllo tho Progressive
Republicans have only about three
members on the national committee
tho proposed fight will bo the opening
gun of tho battle for tho presidential
nomination in tho Republican party
In all probability, Senator William
E. Borah of Idaho will bo chosen to
present the demand of tho Progres
sives that the national committee shall
pass a resolution recommending that
in all states wherever practicable the
stnto committee shall call presidential
primaries at least thirty days prior to
UiO' Republican national convention.
The convention will bo composed of
approximately 1,052 delegates.
Indications now point to Chicago as
the convention city of tho Republican
party. St. Louis and Buffalo have ask
ed for the convention, nnd Kansas
City, Mo., Denver, and possibly St.
Paul may also bo applicants. Chicago
has not yet extended its Invitation,
but it is expected to do so. Tho De
cember meeting of the committee will
also fill permanently tho vacancy in
tho chairmanship occasioned by the
retirement of Frank H. Hitchcock.
John F. Hill of Maine, the acting
chairman, will probably bo continued
at tho head of the committee, if prec
edent is followed.
Tho Democratic national committee
will also meet in Washington in De
cember to choose n convention city and
fix a date for their national conven
tion. The formal call is expected
shortly. Progressive Democrats will
demand that delegates to tho national
convention bo chosen by direct pri
maries nnd the committee may accede
to the demand.
THE COMING WARSHIP.
Great Britain's Experiment May Mean
Great Alterations In Construction.
What will bo tho uttmato outcome of
tho British admiralty's recent order for
n destroyer to be fitted with internal
combustion engines It is difficult to de
termine, but should tho experiment
prove a success it Is ppsslblo to fore
see an alteration of great magnitude
in warship construction. The saving
in weight, space and labor by the use
of this class of engine is enormous
when compared with tho ordinary ma
rine steam engine.
It is estimated that 50 per cent of the
spaco at present utilized by the main
engines would bo saved and as much
as 00 per cent on bunker space. At
present it is necessary to provide stor
age for the great quantity of coal fuel
In order that ships shall have an ef
fective radius of action, but with the
Internal combustion engine oil fuel
only would bo required. Tho same
horsepower would be obtained from
about one-third of the weight of fuel
at present consumed per hour. The
saving in weight of an engine of 2,000
horsepower would bo about one-half,
whllo 75 per cent would be saved in
Another point to be noted is that
with internal combustion engines fun
nels, as wo know them, would become
things of tho past. This would be a
distinct gain to the destroyer, whoso
whereabouts Is at present often be
trayed by tho flare from its funnels or
the volume of smoko omitted.
HEELS AND HOBBLES BLAMED.
Railroad Learns Causes of Accidents to
That high heels and bobble skirts are
responsible for a large proportion of
tho injuries sustained by women while
getting on nnd off trains and mount
ing and descending stairways in sta
tions Is the conclusion reached by the
Pennsylvania railway claim depart
ment after an investigation covering
three monthsin which seventy-three
such cases were recorded.
The injuries ranged from slight con
tusions to painful sprains and cuts.
Typical of tho causes set forth are:
"ncel caught on step of coach nnd
"High heels caught whllo descend
ing stairs; wore hobblo skirt."
It is pointed out that tho railroad
can do nothing to prevent these casual
ties because "women of all times have
followed styles that aro dangerous to
life nnd limb."
No Diploma For Princeton Students
Unless They Can Swim.
To obtain a degree from Princeton
university hereafter undergraduates
must bo ablo to swim at least 220
yards and pass n physical examina
tion. Dr. Joseph F. Roycroft, as head of
tho department of hygleno and phys
ical instruction, began to put these
physical requirements into effect by
initiating tho freshmen Into tho new
no notified them that all freshmen
will bo required to perform a specified
amount of athletic exercise and that
five new baseball diamonds and nine
tennis courts havo been constructed to
give them room to practice. Sopho
mores and upper class men arp exempt
from tho new regulations.
THifl VALUE OP REST.
" I feel I simply can't bo ldlo," a
friend said to mo the other day.
And she seemed very proud of the
fact. But I think that her habit of
being always " on the go " makes her
rather a difficult person to live with.
For sho works till her temper and
nerves are all on edge.
Many women think it very clever
and praiseworthy to be able to " go
on forever " like them.
But it is Just as clovor, and vory
often more praiseworthy, to be able
to rest when one could perfectly well
do so. For to work until one Is tir
ed and dead cross Is rather hard on
Of course, sometimes it is not pos
sible for a busy woman to take a long
rest, (but oven an occasional ten min
utes In a quiet room, with tho eyes
closed and the body In a restful posi
tion, will often work wonders.
To Keep Eggs Fresh.
A sister, who lives in the country,
sends a box of eggs now and again to
town three or four dozen at a time.
It seemed a great' pity to eat them up
quickly whllo thoy were frosh, for If
they could have kept them a little
they would have been able to enjoy
them through several weeks.
But thoy found a way of making
them keep, and though tho last box
came nearly a month ago aro still
having eggs that taste as fresh as if
they had been laid yesterday.
When the box arrived all tho eggs
were taken out and examined very
carefully to see if any of the shells
Tho cracked ones were put aside,
to be used at once, and the sound
ones treated in the following way:
A saucepan of water was boiled,
tho eggs one at a time, in a soup
ladle, dipped Into the water right In
till they were covered and then out
again as fast as possible.
This hardened the shells and made
the insldes keep well, so that even
now there is not the least musti
ness about them.
There nre several ways of overcom
ing the annoyance caused by squeak
ing boots. Ono is to put a little pow
der In between the thicknesses of tho
soles. This may be effected by sep
arating them slightly with a pen
knife. Another way is to leave the 'boots
standing in a flat dish containing a
little oil during the night, so that
the soles may become thoroughly
saturated with It. But remember
that the oil must not bo deep enough
to touch the leather or kid, or tho
boot will not polish.
Some advise tho use of a peg to
tighten the layers of leather. A boot
that squeaks Is not generally well
Perhaps you think the second week
in October rather too soon to talk
about Christmas; but if you have
friends over seas, it is the right mo
ment. Indeed, some Christmas gifts
aro already on tho sea.
It takes about three months for In
stance, to reach some out-of-tho-way
places. Parcels take from six to
eight weeks to get In foreign climes.
So that, as suitable presents cannot
be chosen In a day. It Is high time
to begin to think about them, if you
have friends on the opposite side of
the world, and begin to make your
home gifts, too. Philadelphia In
