Peaches Aro Not Wiped Out.
Ponnsylvnnla's peach trees wero
not wiped out by tho sevoro cold of
last winter by a long shot, and thoro
are prospects that peaches will bo
raised In many counties of tho state,
although tho crop will likely bo tho
smallest known In years. This Is
the way Dr. 01. A. Surfaco sizes up
the situation after a careful study
of his own observations and tho re
ports made to him by Inspectors
from various parts of Pennsylvania.

at Liverpool during Sunday night
and Tuesday morning had broken out
when she was at sea, fully ladon
with cargo and passengers.
The Carmanla was a comparatively
now ship, having been launched only
seven years ago, and was tho first
steamship of great size to uso tur
bine engines. She was 078 feet long,
21,000 tons reglstor, and was built
to carry more thnn 2. GOO passengers
and a crew of 450 persons.
Although tho fire was discovered
at Ave oclock Sunday afternoon It
was burning Tuesday morning, al
though It had been fought all night
by every available fireman and fire
engine In the great city of Liverpool
and tho lire extinguishing appliances
of many tugs and salvage boats.
If the ship had been at sea and had
had to light unaided the fire In her
vitals, with a thousand barrels of oil
on board, the Titanic horror might
have been eclipsed. Tho reports say
that thero seemed to be a separate
fire In half a dozen different centres
and as fast as one was subdued an
other broke out, although the Car

Of courso wo'ro talking of
Tho American boys in Japan wish
to orgnnlzo a troop of boy scouts.
Thero are Just about enough Ameri
can boys betweon twclvo and eigh
teen In Kyoto, Japan, to form a pa
trol of boy scouts. They havo read
of tho 'Boy Scouts of America and
through .Marvin IB. Davis, they have
written to James 'E. West, Chief
Scout Executive of tho Boy Scouts
of America, explaining their desire.
The plan Is now on foot to havo
Davis mado a scout master and to
take active charge of tho boys. Ac
cordingly, the boy scouts will soon
bo taking hikes in Japan. A ship
ment of badges and manuals will
soon bo mado to them.
A troop of tho Boy Scouts of
America has been organized In tho
Colorado School for the Deaf and
tho Blind In Colorado Springs, Colo
rado. Fred Bates, Boys' Supervisor
in tho school has received a commis
sion as Scout Master and has taken
active charge of tho work. Ho haa
organized ono patrol of deaf boys
and In tho other two patrols has boys
who aro blind. 'Bates who was edu
cated In tho school for tho deaf and
the blind is much Interested not
only In the Scout Movement, but In
tho training of tho boys In tho Insti
tution. He writes that ho thinks the
'Scout movement will help tho boys
in tho school to bo better known and
bettor understood among boys who
are not so afflicted.
The School Citizens Committee of
Now York of which Lyman Beecher
jStowe Is secretary looks upon tho
Boy Scout principles as tending to
develop boys Into upright citizens.
The committee has prepared this par
agraph concerning iBoy Scouts:
"Every man counts In this govern
ment business and If you fall to do
your share or I fall to do mine the
business falls behind to just that ex
tent. Your interest is going to
count much if you live up to the
Boy Scouts' Ideals and apply them as
a citizen, through attendance at all
elections be they two or twenty a
year through a close application to
the city's, state's and nation's busi
ness, through membership In good
government, clubs, through willing
ness to serve your fellow citizens In
a small or large capacity and with
out or with compensation, through a
desire to be helpful in any direction
you can in a word to become a
Man Scout in the army of the com
mon good.
