THE CITIZEN, TUESDAY, APRIL i, 1913.
SCENE FltOM "THE SHEPHERD
APRIL 11 AND 25 SET ASIDE
AS ARBOR DAYS
GOVERNOR TENER IX PROCLA
MATION ISSUED FRIDAY
FIXES DATES FOR PLANTING.
Friday, April 11, and Friday,
April 25, were designated as the
arbor days for Pennsylvania by Gov.
Tener In a proclamation Issued at
the Capitol. The proclamation which
calls attention to the importance of
conservation is as follows:
" The prosperity and commercial
independence of a nation depends
very largely upon the ratio of its
production of raw products to its
consumption of the same. As the
rate of consumption relatively in
creases, the cost of living advances
and dependence upon other nations
finally follows. During the last fifty
years our State and nation have ex
perienced a wonderful industrial de
velopment which has been attended
by a tremendous increase In the rate
of consumption and a relative de
crease in the rate of production.
"This Industrial development has
made heavy demands upon our for
ests, as a result of which the rate of
consumption of forests and forest
products has been and is now far
in excess of the rate of production.
Wasteful methods of lumbering and
forest fires are contributing factors. ,
Diseases such as the chestnut tree .
blight are exacting their annual toll.
"Unless the rates of production
and consumption can be made to ap
proach each other, wo shall soon be
come forest poor. By the practice
of intelligent, conservative methods
this ratio can be controlled.
"It requires, first, a knowledge of
the remedies for existing conditions, j
and, second, the initiative to put
these remedies into operation. In
order that the citizens of this Com
monwealth may be intelligently in
formed concerning the forest condi
tions of the State and of the coun
try at large, and, further, that tree
planting, reforestation and the prac
tice of correct forestry methods may
be stimulated, the custom has been
established of setting aside one or
more days each Spring for tho ob
servance of Arbor Day.
"In accordance with tho above
custom, I, John K. Tener, Governor
of the State of Pennsylvania, do
hereby designate Friday, April 11th,
and Friday, April 25th, 1913, Arbor
Days throughout tho Commonwealth.
"All public and private schools are
urged to participate in the observ
ance of the day by planting trees and
by conducting such exercises as will
give a clear conception of tho im
portance of this subject.

MORE MEAT ANIMALS IS
DEMAND OF HOUSEWIVES.
league Starts Campaign Against High
The National Housewives league,
satisfied that the present high price ot
tnent Is due, in pnrt at least, to an
Ktcvsl shortage in the supply of moat
animals, has undertaken an education
al campaign among eastern farmers to
persuade them to raise cattle for food
consumption. Mrs. Julian Heath of
New York, president of the league,
was enthusiastic in discussing the
plnns of the league to provide a food
Mrs. Heath wired to Arthur G. Leon
ard, president of the Union Stock
Yards company, in Chicago, asking the
cause for the increase in the prices of
ments. Mr. Leonard wired back:
For tho period since Jan. 1 as compared
with tho same period ot 1D12 there has
been a total decrease In tho receipts at
Chicago of G40.C0O meat animals of every
type, amounting to an aggregate of 00,
Mr. Leonard further explained tho
shortage on the ground that n largo
amount of range country was annually
being cut into small farms and made
unsuitable for the raising of cattle.
Ho said the annual shortage had been
Increasing for seven years, and it
would take a similar period of time to
build tho cattle industry up to a point
where there could be a reduction in
Mrs. ncath said:
"If we can persuade the farmers to
raise enough meat animals to supply
tho local demand then tho dealers
could procure their whole stock from
local sources and would be freo from
the influence of the packers, and tho
dealers would bo glad to do this if
they could fool assured that a suffi
cient supply would bo forthcoming.
The farmers should he glad to co-operate
because of tho profit which would
accrue to them, and the Housewives'
league would co-operate by buying
none but home raised meat."

A LEARNED CHARGE TO THE
"Murder, gentlemen," said a West
ern Solon, "Is whero a man Is mur
derously killed. The killer, in such
a caso, is a murderer. Now, murder
by poison is as much murder as mur
der with a gun. It Is tho murdering
that constitutes murder, in tho oyes
of tho law. You will bear in mind
that murdor is one thing, and man
slaughter another; therefore, II It is
not manslaughter. It must bo mur
dor; and If it bo not murdor, it must
bo manslaughter. Self murder has
nothing to do in this case; one man
cannot commit folo do so on another;
that is clearly my view. Gentlomen,
I think you can have no difficulty.
You can retire upon It, If you like."
AGED MAN REGAINING LOST
FACULTIES LIKE A CHILD
After Removal of Tumor In Brain, Pa
tient. Sixty-throe, Is Born Again.
Every morning a number of the lead
ing surgeons of Denver gather at the
county hospital to watch the remarka
ble spectacle of a, man sixty-three
years old literally a baby. Each day
the patient acquires the use of one or
two more of his faculties until he can
now move, eat, recognize persons and
speak u few words.
Tho man is Luther Dionno, who for
five years has been practically dying
from a tumor In his brain, no was
paralyzed, speechleess, sightless and
outwardly dead on Dec. 30 last, when
Dr. Leonard Freeman, assisted by Dr.
CUtrenco Hall, operated upon his brain.
They removed n tumor larger than
a walnut from tho cortex of the brain.
This tumor had destroyed nil the uervo
fibers except those running to tho
heart and lungs.
For two weeks nfter tho operation
Luther Dlonne lay as If dead. lie
was fed through tho nostrils. Then
ho began to undergo n complete sec
ond birth into life. His fingers began
to move. The next day his toes mov
ed. On the third day ho could lift his
nrm slightly, and so on, day after day,
the rejuvenation continued. At the
end of ten days he regained his sight,
but was like a baby and knew no one.
When two weeks had passed ho spoke
a word or so, repeating after tho
nurses "food" or "doctor" or "nurse."
TO PHOTOGRAPH NEW PLANET
Astronomers on the Alert For Celestial
Body Recently Discovered.
Astronomers the world over nro
nightly expectant that they may bo
able to show to tho world the card "up
their sleeve," which consists of a now
planet immense in slzo and which Is
making Its force felt without tho re
mote orbit of Neptune.
Whether the new planet will prove
to be inhabited or merely a formation
without sustaining life Is still a matter
of conjecture, as tho astronomers have
not been able to obtain a photograph
of tho coming planet.
Tho Rev. Father Odenbach of St. Ig
natius college, New York, says the first
announcement of tho impending dis
covery came some time ago from Pro
fessor Pickering, noted Harvard mil
versify astronomer. At the time of
Professor Pickering's announcement to
his brother astronomers It was said the
new planet had manifested Itself by its
Influence on Uranus and Neptune.
Ever since Pickering's message the
world of astronomy has been busy
searching the honvons with powerful
telescopes hoping every minute to
"snap" a photograph of tho now world.
"Tho discovery of tho planet nnd its
final placing will bo one of tho great
est achievements of modern astrono
my," said Father Odenbach. "As
tronomers nightly nre searching tho
heavens with photographic telescopes
to prove its existence. It will bo by
means of photographs that It finally
will bo discovered."
