MAKING A HEW ITALY.
Big Southern Colony's Promoter
Tells of Work Done:
MAY BE KEY TO BIG PROBLEMS
Scheme Being Tried Near Wilmington,
N. C, Is Expected to Aid the South
In Solving Negro Problem and. That
of Making Use of Idle Land Life In
New Italian Settlement.
Convinced that there, Is still enough
good truck garden land still unoccu
pied along the Atlantic seaboard to
support many thousands of his -countrymen,
Felice Ferrero, ; brother of
William Ferrero, the Italian historian,
and sociologist, recently returned to
New York city after a visit of investi
gation and, Inspection to an experi
mental co-operative Italian colony lo
cated near Wilmington, N. O.
Mr. Ferrero is certain-that the exper
iment has reached the point where it
may be designated as a success, and
he expects the general spreading of
the news of what it has done to turn
a wave of Italian Immigration ' south
ward. Heretofore this -. immigration
has headed westward, and its deflec
tion into the south is expected to bring
an end to a certain condition that has
existed In the .south since- thewar.
An experimental Dutch colony, locat
ed also in North Carolina, has so far
succeeded that a group of fifty- fami
lies Is now being organized in Holland
to come over in the autumn to prepare
for next year's seeding time. .-. :
With these combined: immigration
movements away from the: general
trend of their progress across the
country, Mr. Ferrero is convinced that
the south has seen the end of the day
when it may expect to have the "ne
gro problem" as a special sectional
difficulty and that from now on other
labor" will Invade the market hereto
fore so universally surrendered to the
descendants of the slaves.
Italian Government- Interested..
Mr. Ferrero, who talked freely of
conditions as he found them among
North Carolina Italians ; and of the
Interest that' he and his brother are
taking In seeing such ot their country
men as like the life-of-farmers trans
planted where there will be an - op
portunity for them to develop,; said: --
There are many organizations In Italy
anxious to find good land, so that they
can let their people know - where - best
to go. Here in New York there - is an
Italian v labor bureau in Lafayette' street
maintained by the government.- It col
lects information and gives the benefit of
its Investigation free -to all inquiring Ital-lans.-
It costs- the government. I should
say, $10,000 a year to keep it up. This
bureau will distribute at once copies or
the report "on the Carolina experiment
and will advise Italians-what they , may
reasonably expect to find if they settle
there, - -
The new movement, as Mr. Ferrero
sees it, will affect the negro question,
the problem of getting relief In the
congested centers of the big cities, the
Immigration question and the-matter
of increasing the industrial wealth of
the south-"by ' turning -many waste
areas into farming sections.
Greatly Attached to the Land.
When asked to state exactly In what
condition he found the- 300 colonists
making up the experimental venture
at the end of their third season on the
land he spoke with much enthusiasm:
They're raising the finest children you
ever saw much huskier1 and healthier
than their half fed ' brothers and sisters
in Italy. Italian peasants, such as these
colonists were, are usually much attached
to the land. With a patch of land, a bit
of meal to eat and a .small sum' tucked
away in some corner of the house such a
peasant would be happy. Only the . most
desperate could be induced to leave.
But here after three years of work I
find a people whose dally diet includes
sweet potatoes, a good assortment of veg
etables and even chickens and beef. Be
sides this prosperity, their priest assures
me each -family has - something over $60
put aside, the product of the' sales of the
season's strawberry crop. -. : - " -
The colony has a church 'and a school,
and all of the younger children are
taught to speak English. -. .
Most of the North Carolina Italians
will come over direct from Italy and will
be Venetians and people now farming in
the northern provinces. . - .
Grape and Olive Cropr Thriving.
One Interesting experiment In North
Carolina has been that of -grape and
olive culture... So far the chief crops
put out of St. Helena, the name of the
Italian colony, have been strawber
ries, potatoes, English beans and cab
bages, while crops of alfalfa, corn and
cotton are being introduced. - - -i -
Father. Donati, the priest of the col
ony, came - from a grape ana olive
raising family. He has experimented
with both,, has a,, thriving prospect
now and is planning to bring over the
members of his family in the fall with
enough grapevines - and young olive
trees to start a large vineyard and
olive grove. ;'. ".;-;. .-- -- - - -.
Besides this new venture, Mr. Fer
rero hopes to interest a few scientific
farmers in the settlement so thatthe
peasant farmers,who adopt new ideas
slowly, will have before them the in-
spiration of -model farms handled by
experts in horticulture - and agricul
tures These, Mr. Ferrero hopes, :will
do for the Italian settlements what the
agricultural college experiment sta
tions have don for the western and
middle western states. -;
r Besides theirs work on the farms, he
hopes to see established in, New. York
another branch of the movementa
co-operative distributing - system In
which the Italian commission mer
chants in New York will keep in close
touch with crop conditions in the col
onies and will prepare to handle speed
ily the shipments of perishable truck
garden, crops. New 4 York " Evening

' PENAL INNOVATION.
Missouri Penitentiary Will . "Abolish
Prison Stripes For Graded Uniforms.
: A radical innovation, was ordered in
the management of the Missouri peni
tentiary the other day when the-board
of prison inspectors, composed of
State Treasurer James Cowgill, State
Auditor John P. Gordon and Attorney
General E. W. Major, directed Ward
en Henry Andrae to prepare for the 1
practical abandonment of stripes and
to uniform -the: convicts according to
grades, says a Jefferson- City (Mo.) i
Several months will be required to
make;: the change entirely effective, -
and all the details of the : plan have j
not yet been evolved. Generally speak- I
ing, it is designed by the board to
have a special uniform for the prison-
ers who conduct themselves according i
to the rules. There re to be several
grades" of clothing, according to the !
merit" of the inmates. Those who
have attained the high merit uniform
will be reduced to the uniform denot
ing an inferior, grade when they vio
late the rules. The striped clothing
will be retained in a restricted degree
for the lncorrigibles. - .; -.
. , The board members were unanimous
In this action. They believe that It
will be both humane and conducive to
better discipline to abandon the for
bidding stripes and offer some reward
for good behavior, Sside. from the re
duction of time thus gained.. ' .
Warden Andrae was advised by the
board to secure, samples of cloth from
which the uniforms are to be selected
and to take steps to make the change
effective as soon as it can be done.
DOUBTS QUEEN MINUS CROWN
Thought It Grew on Just Like Hair,
. Said Boy to British Sovereign. -
Turning to the lighter side of Brit
ish court life, the following little story;
was told by one who was present at a
children's party at Buckingham palace
in London, England. The other day a
little mite of some five years of age
strayed away in the garden and was
looking rather frightened. He saw a
beautiful lady and, running to her,
"Oh, do take me to mamma."
"Certainly," replied the lady.
"What is your name?"
He .told her, "slipping his band con
fidently Into" hers. - "
"And do you know who I am?"
"No." - : ' . '
"I am the queen."
"Oh, no, you are not." -"Indeed,
I am." "
"Yoti can't be, for you haven't got
"But that is for indoors." j ,
"What?" with a prolonged interroga:
Hon..'. "Why, I thought your'-crown-grew
on your head just like my hair
does on mine.":
Atlantic City to Have Marble Building
With Ornate Bellows and Forges.
To-the many and' -varied attractions
of Atlantic City, N. J., is to be added
a marble blacksmith shop. The smith;
is Atlantic City's tax assessor as well,
as a horseshoer. The plans provide
for a marble structure one and a half
stories of gothic "design, the floor to
be on concrete with a rich border in
In-' this- smith de luxe the - bellows
and forges will be of artistic design'
and the horseshoer's four footed
clients - will be hitched by Russia
leather straps with silver snap hooks.
The anvils will be nickel plated, and
so will the nails, and there will be
handsomely furnished waiting rooms
where patrons may rest and read the
popular magazines while their horses
are being shod.
The proprietor argues that if marble
garages pay there's no good . reason
why a - marble blacksmith shop
shouldn't be profitable.
PENSIONS FOR SPINSTERS.
Women Design Insurance Against Pov-
- erty Stricken Old Maidhood.
A band of philanthropic Boston wo
men, headed fcy Mrs. tiienaower
Evans, who is associated with a dozen
Boston clubs and other institutions, is
about to present to members of the
Massachusetts insurance commission
plans for a combination bank and in
surance company to provide pensions
for spinsters who cannot or will not
wed. . By this plan they hope to elim
inate many mercenary marriages, the
Worry of penniless spinsters about
husbands and the endless jokes about
old maids. - ; .
In a nutshell the plan is that a self
supporting unmarried woman shall
place aside regularly a sum out of her
earnings, depositing It in the proposed
bank, and at the age of fifty shalL be
gin, to receive an annuity therefrom.

Oh, the stone age man took his stone tip-
Whenever he went a-woolng, -
And he grabbed by the hair his lady fair.
There -wasn't much bluing or cooing.
Then the steel clad knight on his charger
bold - . - - i -
Rode away on adventure blind. -He'd
rescue a girl, ride oft In a whirl,
- While the lady hung on behind.
And the country swain from the state of

While close by his side sat his promised
Demurely her love confiding.
The honk-honk peat of the automobile
Came along the fair maiden to lure
From her own fireside to be a gay bride.
And Cupid became the chauffeur.
But the club, the horse, the automobUA
And the buggy way down In Maine
Are not used of late. - The ehap up to data
