REPORT SENT TO PRESIDENT
Ratsa by Government Railroad Mutt
be Very Low to Offset Lois
Han Francisco, May U. A matter of
great commercial Importance to the
raclfic coAst is discussed In a report
that Iian bn prepared for the informs
tlon of President Iloosevelt, Secretary
Tsft, of the War department, and J. I..
Ilrlstow, a special commissioner Ap
pointed by 1'rosldcnt Roosevelt to visit
this coasI And acqulro facts, Thequcs
tiou refers to the utility of the Panama
route for tlm movement of freight be
tween Kan FrAiiclsco and tlm Atlantic
states. The report was submitted to
W. It. Wheeler, W. J. Dtilton and
Itufus P. Jennings. It was Adopted by
tlm trustees of tho chamlier of com
merce anil forwarded to Washington in
printed forn by the chamber.
Tho report says In part:
"Tho present freight schedule via
Panama is apparently based on tho
overland railroad freight schedule, tho
charges of tlm former varying from 78
to 10 h:t cent, with an avuragetof about
H'J per cent of tho latter; in other
words, the differentials in favor of the
Panama route, with Its 30-day trip as
compared with the transcontinental
route with its M-dny trip, aro so small
that the shipper either east or west
docs not consider the saving sufficient
to cover tlm risk of damage or hrenkngo
in tho necessary several handlings of
goods via Panama.
"Cniler government ownership of tho
Paiiaiiia railroad and tho sea route to
New York from Colon, tho only ques
tion to bo considered would bo whether
tho freight rates could he made suffi
ciently low to make the saving on trans
portation cxpcnioi an object to the ship
per and enough to offset tho additional
time required in transit."
GOOD MEN QO UP.
Forestry Service Is Improved Under
Civil Servlco Rules.
Washington, May 0. Up to a lew
mouths ago tho forestry service, includ

tendouts, (orest assistants and forest
ranger, wero outside the classified ser

way ironi 7.'U to l.'.ooo a year wero
prey for Influential ollticlans. As
was to Iw exK-clel, many lnconiH;tcnts
wero loaded onto tho government, and
there was much complaint liecauso of
tho inefficiency of the forestry forco.
December 17, 11)04, tho president
brought the forestry under civil service
protection; soon thereafter congress
transferred forest reserves to tho con
trol of the department of Agriculture,
and now (51 fiord Pinchot, chief of the
forestry bureau, who is actually in
charge, is inaugurating reforms which
he believes will greatly Improve tho
servlco In every way,
Tho Koosovult Idea Of promoting good
men Is being applied, and tho higher
iKMdtions in tlio forestry service are
hereafter to bo tilled by the promotion
of cometent men in tho lower posi

to $1,100; assistant (orest ranger, 800
Persons who wero in the (orestry
service on tho dato of tho president's
order wero carried under civil service
protection; hereafter all appointments
will Ihi made after examination of ap
plicants and preference will be ulven
to local men, selecting rangers and su

Taft Issues Orders New Commission
Going to Isthmus.
Washington, May 8. Bccrctary Taft
today cabled Uoveronr Davis, at Pana
ma, to return nt onco to tho United
Htatcs, placing Colonel Uorgas In
charge of tho Administration of the
canal xone until tho arrival there of
Governor Magoon. Governor Davis is
suffering from malaria, and his phy
sicians advised him to Icavo the Isth
mus to recupcrato. lie has resisted
their appeals, however, (earing that
his sudden departure at a time when
tho health conditions on tho isthmus
ant advene would be mlsumlertsood.
Tho secretary plans to have the ex
ecutive commlttto of tho canal commis
sion, consisting of Chairman BhonU,
Governor M spoon and Chief Knglneer
Wallace, sail for the Isthmus on May
10. It will be followed by the remain
ing members of the commission July 1
and the entire body will make a thor
ough examination of conditions on the
Isthmus, with particular reference to
tho formation of plans for canal con
struction. It will consider the import
ant question of tide level or lock canal.
These plans will be submitted through
Mr. Taft to the board of consulting en
gineers, which will bo called In session
tor the first time In Washington Sep
tember 1 or 16 next. ,
Mr. Taft feels that two months will
bo sufficient to ensblo the board to form
final plans ujion which can be based a
presidential recommendation to con

Muscogee, I, T., May 8. Several
tiersons are reported killed, many in
jurod and much damage wrought to
proiKtrty as a result of the flerco wind
and rain storm in various parts of In

2EMSTVOISTS IN SESSION.
Demand Election of Popular Mem
bers on Bouligan Commission.
Moscow, May 8. Tho most ambitions
and thorough project of the new govern
mental organization contemplated by
tho rescript ot Match 3, namely, a pop
ular assembly, is being discussed by
tlm second Zcmstvo convention, which
opened hero today. The first day was
devoted to explanations and familiaris
ing members with tho various details
of the progiam, making clear points in
doubt. Tlio project waa exceedingly
well received by tho delegates and
probably will be adopted in its main
linen by tho congress.
It is noticeable that the program
confines itself cntlvely to tho proposed
representative assembly, not mention
ing tho executive, tho intention being
to avoid any attempt at definition or
limitation or tho powers of tho em
peror. lteforo beginning tho discussion of
the project, tho members adopted a
resolution favoring participation by tho
iRMjplu In tho work of tho Bouligan
commission, only If tho popular repre
sentatives aro elected, and not selected,
and aro given an equal voice with the
government representatives. It was
also resolved that tho deliberations of
tho commission should be subject to
tho broadest publicity nnd that, as a
necessary preliminary to any satisfac
tory result, tho abolition of mnrtlal
law and the establishment of the right
of assembly and freo expression ot

There is a possibility that they have

no reports to that effect have been re

A Hand Harden Cart.
No one realizes how bandy a small
cart Is on the farm until one has used
it; the wheelbarrow Is all right In It
plsce, but there are time when the
band cart answer the purpose much
better. The Illustration shows bow
one of these carta may be made with
a little lumber and any old wheels
from a mower one may have. If there
are no such wheels and shaft on the
farm, the local blacksmith can prob
ably supply the want from articles
ot the kind that come to htm. The Il

Have a box of convenient size, being
careful not to make It too large, else
It cannot be pulled except with con
siderable effort when filled. The width
will, of course, depend upon the length
of the axle. Thills may be msde of
any suitable material, If one cannot
obtain a made pair, and If they arc
homo constructed It will be easy to
bring the outer ends nearer together
by placing a two-Inch block between
the ends next to the box and the box.
At the front end of the box a strip of

tree is attached.
No Cabbage Bnake.
Recently an absurd fear has devel
oped In the minds of some eaters of
cabbages relative to the so-called "cab
bnce snake." The superstition Is that
the snake poisons the cabbages and so
renders them unfit to eat. The exist
ence of such a creature Is denied by
our scientist, but so prevalent Is the
belief that at least one experiment sta
tion Las Issued a circular denying the
existence of the so-called snake. In
some parts of the country a small
whitish eel-worm" has been found to
Infest cabbages. The larvae of this
worm prey upon tho common green
cabbage worm, and hence are doubt
less a benefit rather than a detriment
to the cabbage-growinR Industry. 8ome
of the more superstitious people In the
Bouth Imagined that these worms poi
soned the cabbages, and tests were
made by scientific people to clear up
the matter. Extracts were made from
the worms and Injected Into the hu
man system. These Injections failed
to produce tho least effect. It Is there
fore considered that the character of
the Utile worm has been cleared of the
New Ited Grape.
Although not yet tested In all grape
growing regions, the Regal show
promise wherever It has been grown.
The vine Is a most vigorous grower,
strong and healthy and exceedingly
productive. The quality of the berry
is very good, though not of the best.
The skin Is a rich red, thin but very
tough, and one of Uie chief character
istics of the variety Is its long, keep
ing qualities. As wtll be seen from
the Illustration, the bunch Is compact,
the berries of good size and uniform.
A number of the State experiment sta-
tions have tested the variety and speak
highly of It. If It does as well under
general culture as It uas on trial, It wtll
be of distinct advantage as a market
sort because of Its color and It long-
keeping qualities. Indianapolis News,

A pullet will show rose-colored veins
on the surface of the skin under tho
wings; there will also be long silky
lmtra growing there. After a year old
these disappear, so, too, do the veins,
and the skin shows white and vein
less. The difference can bo seen at a

nincc. Again, a pullet that has not
laid, or linn only Just commenced to
lay, will have tho bone of the pelvis
or basin almost touching. The bones
gradually widen as the fowl continue
laying, and at two years old are much
further apart than they were at one
year old. The third point of dlfferenw
lies In the claw and shanks; In a
young bird the skin of the claw I
supple, and the scales thin and bril
liant. The skin get coarser and
stronger and the scales harder as the
bird grow, and the nail of the last toe,
which doe most of the work, when
the bird scratches, get much worn.
There Is also a difference In the eye
lids. These acquire wrinkles as the
bird get older, and there Is also a
lightly shrivelled look on the face.
This, with age, get more and mora
pronounced. In the case of cocks,
above and beyond these point of dif
ference (except the bone of the pelvl
widening), there are the spur to judge
by. American Cultivator.
With the development of electrical
work proceeding to rapidly In Italy,
It Is not surprising to find that special
attention Is being given there to the
design of electrical agricultural ma
chinery. The Socleta Klcttrotecnlca
Italians of Turin has Invented and con
structed t number of devices for the
application of electric power to farm
machinery, Its latest product being an
electric plow, which Is said to have
come out of public tests with gratify
ing success. The device consists of
two twenty-five horse-power car,
which are stationed at each end of
the field, and between which are
stretched cables attached to the plow.
The electric current Js taken from a
trolley line. The plow is pulled by the
cables from one side of the field to
the other, and when it reaches the end
of the furrow It stops automatically,
the current being cut off. It can be
run backward or forward with ease.
One man manage the plow, and each
car I operated by one man. These
power cars are said to be as easily
managed as traction engines, and their
power can be applied to thrashing ma
chines, pumps, grain drills, etc.
