W. W. Griest, of Lancaster, who has
probably the strongest and most har

suggested nonpartisan local ballot
would inevitably result in the dis
ruption and probable destruction of
all party organizations. Republican
leaders In Lackawanna, Luzerne,
Schuylkill and other big counties
take, a like position. It was tho ori
ginal plan of the State leaders to
have this bill passed and have the
next November election in cities and
counties of tho State held under the
nonpartisan ballot scheme. Senator
James P. McNichol, chairman of the
elections committee of the Senate,
said: "I am surprised at the vigorous
and formidable opposition that has
developed among tarty leaders in the
Interior of the State to the proposed
nonpartisan municipal ballot. Un
less there shall be a great change in
sentiment I do not see how the meas
ure can be passed at this session of
. Farmers are busy with their
tree-spraying apparatus just now.
Many of them believe that the work
must be done this week if at' all and
supply houses report enormous sales
of whale oil soap and lime sulphur
solution. It is estimated that ten
farmers now spray where one used
to and there is not one farmer who
any longer doubts the efficacy of this
treatment for scale. A good story is
told of one Perry county farmer who
agreed with reluctance to permitting
the demonstrators to spray his apple
orchard. Noting his unbelief, tho
young man in charge thought he
would give tho farmer a practical
example, so Iio managed to leave one
of the trees sprayed on one side only,
telling the farmer's son what he had
done, but pledging him to silence.
Next apple-picking time tho demon
strator got a hot letter from the
farmer telling him that his spraying
did no good, and accompanying the
letter wero several rusty-looking ap
ples. They wero from the unspray
ed side of the tree. Explanations
followed and now there is no warmer
advocate of spraying than the form

HOW TO MAKE MONEY
ON BLIGHTED CHESTNUT.
Special Freight Rates Allowed on
the Pennsylvania Rnllroiul.
When the peoplo of Pennsylvania
woke up about two years ago to a
full realization of the deadly charac
ter of the chestnut tree bark disease,
commonly called blight, it was esti
mated that tho loss already mount
ed high into the millions and it was
feared that it would destroy all the
chestnut trees in the state. In some
of the parks of New York City where
tho disease is believed to have" made
its first appearance and where it
spread unchecked for a long time,
that is what actually happened.
Such a condition throughout this
State would have been nothing less
than a calamity and few if any
grumbled when it was suggested
that tho only way in which to fight
the disease was to destroy infected
But one of tho first problems tak
en up by the Chestnut Tree 'Blight
Commission was how to check tho
blight and yet savo tree owners a
total loss. And along this line tho
Commission has scored one of its
greatest triumphs. If tho owner of
chestnut tree acts in time and In co
operation with the commission his
loss will bo comparatively small.
Much chestnut cordwood is used
by extract plants in tho manufacture
of tanning extract. These manufac
turers are able to use chestnut of
any size down to 3 inches In diame
ter outside bark, and the wood may
be either dry or green. Air seasoned
chestnut cordwood is used for fuel
by foundries in starting their fires
and by lime kilns In burning lime.
Their prevailing price is from $2.75
to $3.60 ner cord of 128 cubic feet.
The price of extract wood in south
eastern Pennsylvania has recently
been advanced from $3.00 to $3.50
per cord on board cars at shipping
point. This should be an inducement
to timber owners for cutting and
shipping chestnut cordwood. Ship
pers of blighted chestnut cordwood
must notify tho Chestnut Tree
Blight Commission, 1112 Morris
Building, Philadelphia, Pa., as soon
as the wood is ranked In the woods
and they will send an Inspector who
will inspect tho wood and arrange
for shipping it under the special
rublic Spirited Timber Owner.
Owners of chestnut timber
throughout the state are beginning
to show a spirit of helpful coopera
tion in the work of the Chestnut
Tree Blight Commission. A notable
case Is that of Albert Lewis, of Bear
Creek. Mr. Lewis is tho owner of
50,000 acres of forest in the north
eastern section of tho state and ho
has volunteered to take upon him
self the work of clearing the entire
tract of the blight. It is understood
that there is little infecion, but tho
inspection work will not be lightened
on that account. Mr. Lewis' fore
slghlt and public spirit has been
favorably commented upon.
Blight Scouts Busy.
Approximately 250 examinations
have been made by Tree Surgeon, R.
G. Pierce and Assistant Treo Sur
geon, George W. Elgin, of tho Penn
sylvania Chestnut Treo Blight Com
mission, since tho fall of 1912,
These examinations havo been large
ly confined to answering requests
from owners of estates, who sought
advice concerning the treatment of
their valuable lawn trees. Inspec
tions have also been made of trees
In parks, cemeteries, orchards and
woodlots. Also actual demonstra
tions of the removal of diseased
branches and cankers have been giv
en in a score of places.
"Baby Mine" ono of William A.
Brady's best productions, will be

COURT BILL IN SENATE.
Action Is Taken at Request of the Law
Association of Philadelphia.
Tho municipal court bill was re
committed to the Judiciary General
Committee when it came on first read
ing in tho Senate. This was dono
upon the request of tho Law Associa
tion of Philadelphia, supporting the
addltonal Judges bill already sent to
the Governor. This hearing will bo
held next week, and in the meantime
the Governor will not act on tho
Judges bill. Those advocating morp
Judges In Philadelphia fear the bill's
defeat at the hands of the Governor,
and they will attempt to show that
municipal courts are not effective.
Senator Magee is moving in a new di
rection toward the Pittsburgh Board
of Public Education. Ho introduced a
bill which would make Pittsburgh a
second-class district. Pittsburgh and
Philadelphia now constitute the first
class districts of tho State. If Pitts
burgh were to be demoted to the sec
ond class it would close many of tho
beneficial provisions of the code pre
pared with the view of advancing Its
schools. From the business standpoint
alone the change would bo serious.
The present auditing system would be
An Elective Board.
The Stein bill, making the school
board elective instead of appointive,
cannot get through the Legislature, as
Philadelphia will not stand for the
change. That city has had an appoint
ive board since 1905 and is well satis
fied. There is no demand in Phila
delphia for a change. To overcome
the opposition of the Philadelphia
legislators tho plan to chango the
classification has been taken up.
Increase of Debt.
Mr. Mcllhenny, Philadelphia present
ed a Joint resolution making clearer
Iho amendment to the Constitution
adopted last fall relating to Philadel
phia's increasing its debt for the build
ing of subways; also an enabling act
to carry into effect the amendment
adopted last year. These bills aro
not to become effective unless tho
amendment adopted last year is de
clared Invalid by the Supreme Court.
Favor Non-Partisan Ballot.
Tho advocates of tho non-partisan
ballot appeared before tho Elections
Committee of the House. The advo
cates of the bill put forth the plea that
tho present assembling of candidates
under party denominations on the
ballot prompted tho voter to choose
tho party and not the man. Tho selec
tion of the party's candidate, regard
less of what his personal merits or de
merits might be, they said, was alto
gether contrary to the spirit of the
suffrage. The different speakers wero
introduced by General A. J. Logan,
who acted as chairman of the meeting.
The framer of tho measuro, Watson
Adair, said that the tendency was for
a man affiliated with a party to vote
for that party's candidate for muni
cipal ofllco regardless of his qualifica
tions. The restriction of a man of
ono party voting for a candidate of
another was also an argument for the
bill. The non-partisan ballot, ho said,
was intended for tho good of his city.
EXPRESSION OF THANKS.
The Business Men's Association by
giving the Boy Scouts seven pairs of
rubber boots have shown very sub
stantially their interest in tho wel
fare of the men and boys who give
their best efforts, voluntarily, to tho
safety of lives and property In
Honesdale. The gift, coming un
solicited, is greatly appreciated by
When the Troop was first organ
zed the Scout Master felt that the
boys might bo of service at fires by
looking after the comfort of firemen.
At the Riof-Spettigue firo Chief Oday,
recognizing the value of organized re
lief work, called on them to assist in
many ways. Not to do the work of
firemen but to look after thoir in
terests. That night and at evory
fire of consequence since, tho Scouts
havo not only carried coffee and
sandwiches but have been generally
useful as errand boys.
The Scout Master and Scouts aro
under command of tho Chief and the
foreman and tho boys aro impressed
with the fact that they must obey
every order to the letter. They have
worked so silently and efficiently as
to earn the commendation of offi
cers and men, and this appreciation
by the association comes as a reward.
The effectiveness is found in the
organization and direction of the
work. As soon as the boys arrive the

COWS DO NOT PAY FOR FEED.
Recently Discovered nt Cornell Dairy
One-third of tho cows of the state
are not .paying for their feed. This
fact was brought out at tho recent
meeting of the Cornell Dairy Stu
dents' Association during Farmers'
Week at the College of Agriculture
at Ithaca and Is based upon investi
gation by the dairy association.
To better this condition tho follow
ing action was suggested.
"Cow-testing associations should
bo formed and poor cows discarded.
There would be more money made by
so doing. Cleaner milk is needed,
and more care should be exercised
In its handling. The use of a damp
cloth on the udder flank of the cows,
omission of feeding previous to milk
ing and the use of a small topped
milk pail will do much to improve
All skim milk sent back to tho
farm ought to bo pasteurized, and
such a law is likely to be passed In
the near future for the prevention
of the spread of tuberculosis. Live
steam may be passed Into skim milk
for pasteurization. Exhaust steam
from the separator may bo used for
