NEW POLICY FOR CENTRAL
Li AMERICA STIRS SENATORS

PROVE TAKIXG UEPUHIilCS
UNDER OUR WIXG.
Would Put Into Definite Terms Rec

Washington, July 24. Secretary
Bryan's plan for the extension o the
protecting wing of the United States
over Nicaragua, broached to the For
eign Relations Committee of the Sen
ate Monday with the consent and
approval of President Wilson, has be
come the absorbing topic of diplo
matic and Congressional considera
tion. While olllclal utterances have
not been given of the purpose of the
administration to outline a general
policy toward Central America, mem
bers of the Senato evince a growing
conviction that the principle to be
applied to Nicaragua Is one that tho
Wilson administration would be glad
to see extended to other Central
Members of tho Foreign Relations
Committee who were present when
Secretary Bryan unfolded his plan
Saturday, continued to-day to assert
they could not discuss the new de
velopment. Intel-national Policy.
Tho project, to extend a virtual
protectorate over Nicaragua, has as
sumed the character of an interna
tional policy, which members of the
Senate are discussing with emphatic
expressions of opinion.
Secretary Bryan has not proposed,
it is understood, that the United
States shall assume or guarantee the
debts of the Republic of Nicaragua.
The desire of Nicaragua for a control
of Its customs resources by United
States, so that it could secure loans
to refund its pressing debt, has been
known for some time and met the
opposition of the Senate Foreign Re
lations Committee when It came be
fore that body in the form of a dell
nite treaty agreement.
Upholds Monroe Doctrine.
Secretary Bryan's plan calls for a
definite statement of policy that
would guarantee Nicaragua s inde
pendence, would guarantee the con
trol by the United States of that
country's dealings with foreign coun
tries and would put into definite
terms the recognized principles of
tne .Monroe Doctrine prohibiting for
eign nations from securing foothold
on the American Continent.
It is understood, however, that the
only agreement upon the question of
the internal linances of Nicaragua
would be embraced in that part of
tne treaty by which Nicaragua would
bind herself not to "assume or con
tract any public debt," in the dis
charge of which "the ordinary reve
nues of tho nation, after defraying
expenses of tho government, shall bo
Under this guarantee of financial
stability, however, it is believed Nic
aragua would find It possible speedily
to revise her fiscal system and secure
foreign and for necessary public de
velopment. Tho only specific pay
ment to be made by the United States
is 'f3.000.000 in gold to be paid for
perpetual exclusive canal rights oveo
tho Nicaraguan route, and the naval
bases in the Bay of Fonseca and on
the Great Corn and Little Corn Is
lands in the Caribbean Sea.
THE TENT CATERPILLAR-"
It is a good thing to consider
how these pests may be destroyed,
not that much can bo done just
now but because they have been so
numerous this season that every
body realized the need of doing
something to prevent their return.
The number of these caterpillars
seems to reach Its maximum once
in about ten years, and it is prob
able there will not be so many in
1914 as this spring. Nature will
destroy many of them through their
enemies which aro numerous.
Parasites will kill them and birds
and toads will eat them. They
have now loft their nests and In co
coons which they have mado are
changing into pupae which become
brownish red moths.
Early In July the female deposits
about two hundred eggs in a mass
or belt around a twig of some tree
which Is to bo infested the next
year. They prefer tho wild cherry
and this fact suggests an easy way
CLEARS THE COMPLEXION.
Discovery that Removes Plmplos,
Eczenui and All Skin Troubles.
If you are troubled with pimples,
blackheads, acne, barber's Itch,
blotches, freckles or other skin dis
ease or blemish, now is tho time to
get rid of it with Hokara.
This pure and simple skin healer Is
being Introduced in 'Honesdalo by
Pell, the druggist, at tho low price of
25c for a liberal sized jar, and they
have sold hundreds of treatments.
It contains no grease or acid, is
cleanly to use and Is a true nourish
ment for the skin, cleaning and
clearing It in every poro, making It
soft, white and beautiful.
If Hokara does not do oven moro
than is claimed for it and glvo per
fect satisfaction, roturn the empty
jar to Pell's drug store and they will
refund your money. If you have any
skin trouble, you cannot spend 25c
to better advantage than for a jar
pf this skin food.
to reduce their numbers. Cut and
burn these trees (they are of little
use) and the principal breeding
place of the tent caterpillar Is taken
away. Tho destruction of these wild
cherry trees will also destroy the
source of some other pests, for in
stance tho blackknot and some oth
er fungus diseases. Next to the wild
cherry they like tho apple tree, and
If these clusters of eggs can be found
and destroyed while trimming the
trees, so much tho better. This may
be done any time between July and
About the time that leaves ap
pear next Spring tho eggs that have
not been killed by their natural
enemies or by human agency will
develop into little caterpillars or
larvae and within a day or two will
begin to build a nest. Tho nest Is
readily seen and should be at once
destroyed. A cloth fastened about
the end of a polo sufilclently long
to reach any part of the tree may be
used to wipe them out literally and
figuratively or In small trees this
may bo done with tho gloved hand.
Those who take good care of their
apple trees will spray a littlo later
for the coddling moth and tho arsen
ate of lead used In that spray will
kill the young caterpillar. When
they appear to be numerous it will
pay to spray with arsenate of lead
somewhat earlier than for the moth,
as the poison Is much more effec
tive when the caterpillar is small
and killing them While small will
save the foliage.
This visitation of worms in 1K13
will have been of some value If it
will have mado us see tho necessity
of a moro Intelligent care of our
trees in the future. F. R. Stevens,
Agriculturist, Lehigh Valley Railroad.

The combination of the Young
Buffalo Wild West, Vernon C. Seav
er's Hlpuodrome and Col. Cummins
Par East, which will show in Hones
dale twice on July 28, brings togeth
er three of the most pleasing and up-to-date
forces of tented amusement
of modern times, each In Itself com
plete In every detail.
It would be hard to find more up
to the minute amusement than that
afforded by the combination of Wild
West, Hippodrome and Far East, em
bracing as it does the most entertain
ing and diversified features In existence.
Besides the true American pion
eer, who Is shown with careful atten
tion to accuracy in every detail of
his eventful life, and the Indian In
every phase of life, both In war and
peace, there will be presented a vast
concourse of cowboys, cowgirls, Mexi
can vacnueros and rurales, rough
riding and broncho busting, trick
and fancy roping and shooting. This
latter feature is featured in stellar
manner by the world renowned An
nie Oakley, champion rille shot, who
will give a remarkable demonstration
of rifle and revolver markmanship,
unequalled by the efforts even of the
early plainsmen, who had to shoot
quickly and accuratelly to preserve
their lives. These and various other
acts each the premier of Its class,
make up the Wild West section of
this extraordinary combination of exhibitions.
The Hippodrome is a collection of
tho choicest acts to be obtained. A
feature is the act of the Eldridge ele
phants, a new troupe all of whose
tricks aro new and surprising. Ex
traordinary turns of pantomimicry
are provided in the "Taximeter,
"Tho Bounding Hayrack," and oth
ers. An entirely novel feature and
ono that has not been seen in the
United States previously is "The
Dance of tho Jungle," a tropical re

congruously exemplify the art terp-
slchorean. In addition scenic and
spectacular acts in gergeous panor
