The principal feature of rejoicing
among republicans seems to be the
fact that Mr. Bryan has been de
feated three times. The principles
Involved seem to be of little concern.
They seem to iose sight of the
fact that Jesus Christ has been an
unpopular candidate for nearly two
thousand years, but is still a candi

Htab'lHhod In the hearts and lives
of the entire human race. w. J.

for president, but the principles for
which he has so faithfully and
honestly contended will live as long
us honesty remains a virtue and
men are found who esteem human
happiness greater than sordid com
mercialism. Yes, a majority of those who
went to the polls and voted have
said that Mr. Bryan should not be
president, but let us remember that
this has been the fate of almost
eyerry truly ureal man mat nun
ever lived. W. J. Bryan stands be
fore the world to day as Its greatest
living statesman. He will be
known In history as the man who
did more to elevate American man
hood than any other man of his
time. My posterity will always
point with pride to the fact that
their paternal ancestor stood by the
greut Commoner In his valient fight
for the natural and constitutional
rights of American citizens, as
against the oppressions of corpor
ation wealth. No one of the next
generation will ever feel glad that
his fathor voted for Mr. Taft.
We democrats are going to give
President Taft our loyal support In
the execution of blB official duties,
but we want it understood that we
make no sacrifice of principle.
We believe that this government
should be run In the Interest of all
the people, and not In the Interest
of the Hocketfelers, Morgans,
Hills and Ilarrlmans. We have
been fighting for that which every
one of well balanced mind knows
to be right and we expect to live
and dio iu the good work. We
kuow that we are In the best of

AVOID FROST DAMAGE
Su8iestiorts Which MV Soon Be
of Great Practical Value
to Fruit Men.
The United States Weather Bureao
is making investigations of varioos
methods to protect froit and other
crops from frost. The following ar
ticle, considerable of which relates to
California, may suggest some good
ideas to Josephine Coonty fruit
Ihe problem of protection from frost
may be considered uuder lour sec

1. The issuance of adequate irost
2. A discussion ol the physical
process opeiative iu the formation
and dissipation of frost.
8. The construction of devices and
apparatus based upoon the principles
enumerated in No. 2.
4. The intelligent use of these
devices so that a maximum efficiency
may be obtained at the critical hour.
In California frosts are found to
occur under certain pressure condi
A period of strong north winds fol
lowed by clear skies is a period of
dauger. Frost is essentially a prob
lem in air drainage and some know
ledge of the movement of the air over
the ground, or in other words, the
local air circulation is essential for
successful front forecasting. The
chief oause of cooling is undoubtedly
radiatiou. and this is controlled to a
large degree by the relative purity and
stillness of the air. When, therefore,
the lower air strata are quiet and dust
free, also vapor free, conditions are
favorable for intense radiation, and
oouacquently rapid cooling of both
vegetable fibre aud the soil. All fruit
growers should oarefully study the
weather conditions preceding frost in
their localities. Ihe district fore
caster at San Frauoisco and observers
at any Weather Bureau station will
gladly receive suggestions in the mat
ter of local air drainage and frost for
mation and will, so far as their time
permits, investigate aud report upon
Under the second beading, discuss

venting the fall iu temperature:
1. Adding heat.
22. Adding water vapor.

4. Vetiti'atiou, or mixing of the
Irrigation, or use of water.
6. Use of heated water.
7. Use of sereins or covers, prevent

All of the above processes can be
found explained iu detail in publica
tions of the Weather Bureau. The

whether solid, as ice or frost fluid,

to point out to them that the actual
temperature of the air is probably of
Its importance in frost formation
than the cooling of the clant surface
due to radiation. Nearly all fruit
growers now understand that after
sunset, if there be no clouds present
snd but little motion of the air
(though it is well to test this by
watching the flow of smoke uear,the
ground) the plant surface emits heat
rapidly into space. The under surface
of the foliage, of course, intercepts
heat from the Rround, and so we sel
dom Hud frost forming under a tree,
The convective currents of the air are
pmifli-Hllv sluittfith snd there is, as a
rule, little mixing of the air strata,
or no thorough circulation at such
times. Helmholtz has shown that
layers of air of differenttemperatures
may lie cloe to one another without
mixing, and indeed this is known to
be the case, not only near the ground
bnt even in free air. Doubtless here
in lies the explanation of the ttreaki-
uess of frost. We have examiued or
chards which were apparently level;
and yet npon close Inspection it was
found that although there was do
noticeable slope of the ground, there
were certain channels of air motion
aud certain stagnant rones. The frost
streaks wera found .(to coincide with
the stagnant areams. Much, however,
depends npon the nature of the radiat
The warming or the chilling of the
ground has not much effect upon .the
air at, distance of 10 or 13 feet.
That is to say, the .rate of heat con
duction from one layer to another is
very slow. Therefore it is not nu
nsual on frosty nights to obtain
readings of 1)2 degrees F. at the
ground, while at six to 10 feet above
the ground, the temperature may be
3H degrees or 88 degrees F.
Under the third head, viz., the con
s' ruction of devices and apparatus
for use in orchards, viueyards, gar
deus, etc., we believe that each local
forecaster can contribute materally to
successful work by examining in situs
snv device Drought to his notice. It
is suggested that he read np the
history of the wire coal baskets, first
used by Edward Copelv at Riverside,
Cal., the use of oil by Evertt at Ar
lington ; the application of hot water,
first used by Meacham ; the smudge
uiachiues of Hall, Hammond aud
others; the oil pots and the small,
cheap, sheet iron stoves in which
briquettes are burned aud which are
