This subjest is now before the United

believed tend to eliminate one of the
principal causes of wroclis. Officers of
the Public Health Service are of the
conviction that physical unfitness is
responsible for more wrocks than most

heedlessly past signals.

Colorblindness is responsible for

bolieve. People suffer from this ail

Tests for hearing is also important.

Byrnes is Glad.
Every time the House Banking and
Currency committee holds a meeting,
Representative Byrnes, or S. (J., a Dem
ocrat, pats himself on the back and
congratulates himself that he is no
longer a member of that particular
committee. For several years Byrnes
was a Banking committee senior, rank
ing well up toward tho top of tho list
and in lino prospectively for the chair
manship. Because of the Democratic
bickering and internal dissension on
the committee, Byrnes now says he is
glad he retired last March.
Why Byrnes gave up a senior posi
tion on the Banking committee, which
has charge of currency legislation, is
an open secret. The Banking commit
mittoe is one of the most important In
the House, at that Byrnes was" inter
ested in the work and served promi
nently as a member of the Pujo money
trust investigation committee. But he
is a lawyer, a young one, ambitious and
prominent in his state. He successful
ly defended "Beauty" Beach, charged
with assaulting Mrs. Beach who was
formerly Mrs. Havemeyor, with a pen
knife. Figuring that he might help his per
sonal fortunes by remaining on the
Banking committee during the publicity
given the currency legislation, Byrnes
believes the banking committee will be
a "dead one" almost a political mor
gue, after the currency bill is passed
in the House. So he resigned from the
committee in the hope of boing of more
service in other committee work.
Cullop is Oil Magnate,
Representative Cullop is a budding
"oil magnate." He and friends "at
home" are owners of aa oil well in
Ohio which Cullop thinks is going to
make all hands rich, maybe. During
the hottest time in Cullop 's fight for
publicity of indorsements of federal
bench appointees, Cujuop received a
telegram that his oil well wits spouting
like a house afire a gushed, it was
roported. Cullop made a flying trip
to Ohio, a week end journey. He
threw a few shirts and socks into a
suit case and "beat it" for the first
train to Ohio. Now Cullop is confid
ing to a few intimate friends that the
gushing reports were somewhat exag
Oregon Agricultural College, Corval
lis, Ore., Oct. 8. Apple growers should
spray thoir troos with the .0-6-50 Bor
doau mixture as soon as possible after
the fruit is picked if they are to get
the best protection from appletree an
thracnose, according to the recommen
dations of Profossor H. S. Jackson, of
the department of plant pathology,
Oregon Agricultural collegt.
''Growers should begin to make prep
aration for tho annual full sprayings
for apple tree anthracnose, " continued
Professor Jackson. "Last season was
an ideal one for the development of
this disease, and in many orchards it
seems to have incroased, especially in
orchards which wore not sprayed last
fall. It is important that the spray
be applied as early as possible. If
young orchards, not in bearing, are
to be protected the spraying should not
be delayed, but should be put on at

and causing a groat deal of damage,
two sprayings should be put on, about
three weeks apart. Where the disease
is esecially serious it is advisable to
The Markets
Orders from London yesterday sent
hops up half a cent and gave indica
ttions of the demand there. It also in
dicated that the attempt to hold prices
down has begun to weaken, and that
they will soon go to a price here that
will more nearly correspond with the
prices abroad and in New York, Al
bert Banister, of London, in his annual
review of the hop situation, advises
brewers to "lay in their supplies at
once, as prices are sure to advance and
the crop is not large enough to supply
the demand." This is also a notice to
growers to hold on and stand for better
prices. They cannot go lower and grow
ers take no chances in holding, for re
ports from all points show a big short
age and "not enough hops to meet the
demand. ' '
Wheat is sluggish, and the produce
and poultry markets unchanged, eggs
alone showing an advance.

"Whilo it is advisable to prune out
the 'more seriously infected branches
before Bpraying, the spraying is the
more important and should be given
tho preference. The pruning may be
done as soon as possible after the
spraying. All affected branches should
be removed from, the orchard and
burned as Boon as cut off, since thoy
would be a source of infoction if al

"80 far as practical it is advisable
to cloan out the dead bark wherever
cangors are formed, and if wounds are
large to protect them with grafting

bark in cankers may be a source of
infoction for three years. Its removal
is further advisablo as it offers pro

"The development of very small
cankers, if detected in the winter, may
often be prevented by shaving off in
the thin outer layer of bark. This
will allow the cankers to dry out and
will to a largo extent prevent the for
mation of Bores in the fall. This meth
od is practical only on very young
treos, and in any case should be con
sidered merely supplementary to spray
ing." There has recently been started a

Frances Alda had her chance to sing
the role of Mimi at the Metropolitan
opera house, in Now York, a theater
where oldt'r favoritos had won their
successes as Pucciniui's fascinating
but frail heroine. Advance notices
disclosed nothing of 'what Madame Al
da would do in the now role, new for
hor but the public which had so great
ly admired her Desdomona, was pro
pared to enjoy Alda's Mimi quite as
keenly. The consensus of opinions the
day after the performance resulted as
Alda's public predicted it was an ov
erwhelming triumph for the Australian
William J. Henderson, the New York
Sun critic, one who most singers fear,
stated in his roviow:
"Madame Alda's singing of the mu

Mr. Krohbiel, of the Tribune, declar
ed in his ropbrt:
"But no apology was nooded for Ma
dame Alda lust night. Hor voice has
the frosh youthful quality, which lov
ers of the play like to assoc'iaiu with
tho fragile heroiuo, and the music is
easily within its technical demand, and
her skill as an actress compasses all
its histrionic needs. "
Tho Morning Tolcgmph waxod elo
quent in its essay:
"Alda's throat, like an abundant
fountain, poured forth floods of crys
talline song. Her tones woro full and
free and true. Thoy roflocted hor
emotion as dewdrop rofloct tho morn
ing sunlight. Her Mimi was a winsome
and floworlike woman, Bwaycd like a
flower in the wind, by tho desire of
tho moment and like the flower quick
ly fading Into death."
The press closed its comments on
Alda's impersonation with those strong
"Connoisseurs have always recogniz
ed the natural beauty of Madame Al
da's voice." In the third act, the
Boprano obtained admirable results vo
cally and histrionically, winning many
curtain calls and flowers."
AN S. P.
. Oluf Olson, a native of Sweden, mot
death yesterday by being hit by a spe
cial 8, P. work train, near Turner. The
theory of Bulclde was popular for a
ERCHANDISC. im sttcct ccrwiai
time, but, upon investigation by Coro
ner Clough, it was found that Olson
failed to hear tho approaching train,
and was struck by accident. According
to the information received by the cor
oner, Olson had just come to work on
he section gang, and, after depositing
his lunch in a building nearby, Btarted
to walk np the track. The train ap
proached him from behind, and the en
gineer gave several warning whistles,
but the man did not look around. The
pilot of the engine hit Olsen and threw
him to the side of the track. His head
came in contact with a tie, and death
resulted instantly. The dead man has
a wife and son here, and has been in
the country but a short time.
