\\; The Trenton Sun Newton Rule, Publisher. TREN'rON, - ILLINOIS INOREASING THE CROPS. Vast as re our American Crolm. the qmmense bulk gathered from their ex- tension can be almost indefinitely en- larged by careful selection of the goods. Despite the fact that figures r Umating the annual yield cannot be Lproperly reJized, we are but Jus be- ginning to understand the intensive and residual force stored up in the material handled. In former times, eyond common prudence and a gen. rai survey, little attention was paid o the condition of the seed. Rough- grad-ready methods were sumcienL Today, with nicest exctitude, this material is being examined, ear by ,ear, and the fittest only selected. Croes-fertilizaUon and seed selection ave become factors of great moment in the modern agriculturist's vocation, d applied science is working won- ders with cereals and other food crops, adding more bushels'to the acre, more oad on the harvest cart and millions f dollars to the market. Wheat. for lnstance, can be euitivate to met ocal conditions of soil and climate, .nd it has been estimated that follow- ng out this "selective" hint, our an- nual yield might be twice the amount 'now quoted. A series of tests made y the United States department of agriculture resulted in the statement !that rejecting the grains of low vi- tality when sorting out seed means gain of 14 per cent. on the crop. On the basis of last year's total grain grrOduction this means 437,000.000 more bushels, or more than $200,000,- 00 valuation on the farm. All the putdoor sports so dear to mericans are now in full swing. Wet days are giving place to 'sunshine ones, increasing the enjoyment for" the young and old who delight in being In the open air. The athletically in- lihed who have been exercising in mmaslums all winter are now able to get the neede d practice in the open Jolt. Gymnasinm work is excellent, ut all instructors are pleased when they san mend their charges outdoors :to get into real acUon in some fas- cinating sport. The athlete is never r the bt possible condition until he has outdoor training. Th pure fresh air is also invigorating f0r those who do not Indulge in physical stunts. The indoor worker should try to get aU the fresh air he can at some period of the day, Then he will be able to =naintaln his physical strength at nov nai and can enjoy life. The secretary of th navy hts abol- lshel "port" and "starboard" as naval terms for plain land lubbery "rght" and "left." But if the ruler of the land's naves thinks that he can get he salt-crusted Gloucester fishermen to abandon the sea-going terms of their ancestory on his say-so, he has everal ether'thinks due him. A woman physician says that bru- ,nettea as a rule are steady. "They change ies often and become special. tats. They suck to one thing rather than the variety." However, the bru- nette who becomes a blond shows in an unmistakable manuera tendency o seek variety. A man who fell in love with a Chi- cago widow on account of her feet. is now being sued by her for breach of promise. Probably she had refused to serve as a substitute for the roller he uses on his lawn. After his spouse had hit him in- numerable times with a frying pan, broken his arm. potired hot water on him, scratched his face, pulled his hair and left,him seven Umes, a Georgia man h come to the concinston that she does not love him any more Quick perception, certainly. A Philadelphia suggestion that the navy department further amend that aubsltution of Hght and left for star- board and port by nakin8 It "haw" and "gee" would make it even more familiar to naval "rookies" from the agrlcnlturnl belt.  There is some consolation fo thoe ]people in Chicago whose servant girls are demanding the use of the Parlor at leat one evening a week. The bill will be cut dbwn.

It .is more than likely that the social philos. ophers among the eay EgYPtians found it quite an ancient prsUce in their time. Croaslng the ocean in a day is now being considered. A tolerant smile would one day have been the only answer tc this mad suggestiou, but . in these tie the quick reply Is "Why not?" THEY DECLARE NO IMPROPER INFLUENCES WERE EXERTED AGAINST BILL. BUT ONE "LOBBYIST" NAMED He la Interested In Indian Contracts, Not in Tariff MeasureRepub. Ilcane Present ProteotJon Ar- guments While Testifying. WashtngtonMore and stronger de- velopments must characterize future sessions of the senate committee in. vestigating the lobby against the Un- derwood tariff bill, which President Wilson charged was at work in Wash. ingtou. None of the 18 senators ex- amined as witnesses could trace he "numerous, industrious and insidious" lobby referred to by the preslden in his recent statement, which was the basis of the resolution providing for the inquiry. Some features of the hearing are humorous and some senators regard the investigation as a Joke. One of those testifying so characterized it. The committee is faithfully follow- ing the line of inquiry adopted, ask- ing each senator as he takes the stand to answer each of the eleven set ques- tions propounded, a typewritten list of which is furnished. One humorous feature is the mod- est admissions of senators of their worldly possessions. Several ques- tioned own farms, others have stock in gas works, electric lighting con- cerns, street car "companies, sewer pipe factories, and some own only fire insurance policies, which they would be glad to say would not be affected by the income tax provision of the proposed tariff act. O. O. P. Tariff Arguments Made. The most humorous development of the day's testimony, however, was .the avidity with which Republican senators, who had unconsciously fought in the senate for public hear- lngs before the finance committee for their constituents, took advantage of the opportunity to present tbe very arguments the constituents would have made against tariff reduction had they been allowed to be heard. Senator Burton of Ohio, solemn and earnest, was the best example. He gave ames of Ohio manufacturers of matches, of pottery, " of incandes- cent electric globes and sewing ma- chines, and told the committee what they ad represented to him would happen to their lndustrfes under tha proposed tariff act. Only one man was characterized as a lobbyist, although several defini- tions of the term were given. This was J. F. McMurray, the Oklahomt lawyer, who was first mentioned by Senator Ashurst of Arizona. the first witness. Senator Borah and Senator Catron of New Mexico afterward used McMurray's name. Close friends of the president con. tend that later on evidence will be brought out justifying everything the president has said. and that some of the most interesting of it will relate to former members of congress. ImprOper Influence Denied. As senator after senator denied knowledge of the existence of an or- ganized lobby, declared that imp'roper influences had not been exerted upon .him, and that money to influence leg. lslation had never appeared upon the congressional horizon at the pres- ent session, the crowd lost is appe- tite and slowly thinned out. The trail of the lobby was hard to find. and spectators who looked for sensations went away empty-handed. Senators who had served for years testified that they believed there was lees personal appeal to members of the two houses now than at any tariff revision of recent years. Nearly a dozen and a half senators had been examined before the end of the ses- sion, and, while they disclosed freely their personal business affairs and the extent of their property investments, the committee found no evidences of senatorial or outside influence to im- properly affect ariff legislation.

England Is Fourth Nation to Rascal Convention for Peace With United States This Year. Washington, D. C . Secretary Bryan and Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, the British ambassador, signed a renewal for five years of the general arbitra- tion treaty between the United States and Great Britain, which expires by limitation June 1. The treaty provides for the arbi- tration by The Hague court of any differences of a legal nature not af- fecting "the vital interests, the in- dependence, or the honor of two con- tracting states," and which do not concern interests of third parties. A form of special agreement, covering the subject to be arbitrated, subject to the senate's approval is prescribed. The British treaty is the fourth of the arbitration conventions to be re- newed this year, the others being those with France, Italy and Spain. Diplomats are awaiting with much interest the expiration of the similar treaties with Japan and Mexico. rhe treaty with Japan expires by limita- tion on August 24.

No hint has been given that the Huerta government will be recognized and in announcing recently the names of the nations with which this govern- ment was willing to renew arbitration treaties, President Wilson omitted Mexico. POPE PlUS IS 78 YEARS OLD Pontiff Receives Messages of Con- gratulations From All Parts of World--Health Seems Robust. Rome.The pope is 78 years old, and many telegrams and messages from all part s of the world have ar- rived felicitating the pontiff and wishing him many happy years of life.

I;OV, BLEASE IS DEFIANT c" z002:00j%%22o *8outh CaOlinanz Wrathy Because Governor Taken Revenge on City for Fining Chauffeur. Spartanburg, S. C.--There ts talk df impeachment proceedings against Governor Cole I Blease because of the reprisal he took on the city of Columbia for fining his negro chauffeur for exceeding the speed limit. The negro, Harrison Neely, was convicted three times. Te governor pardoned him after the first two con- victions and ordered that his fines be remitted. Thin the Columbia authorities have refused to do on the advice of the city attorney, who questioned the right of the governor to pardon of- fenders against the municipality. Taking advantage of authority vest- ed in him the governor retaliated by adding three more constables to Co- lumbia's already large constabulary. Each of the constables receives $90 a month, half of which must be paid by the city. "He who laughs last laughs best," Gee. Blease said in announcing his action. When the attention of the governor was drawn to the reports that an effort would be made to impeach him, he said there had been talk of that kind at the last three sessions of the legislature, but nothing I.ad come of it.

Senate Committee Finds Inauguration Crowds Caused Hostility to WOmen in Parade. Washington, D. C.--Superintend- ent Sylvester and the Washington police are absolved from blame for the disorders which attended the woman suffrage pageant here on March 3. The report of the senate committee which investigated the af- fair was presented to the senate. The immense crowd that flocked to Washington for the inauguration, and the fact that street cars were per- mitted to operate along the line of march up to the last moment, were charged with being principally re- sponsible. The police were generally praised for their efforts to give the marchers a clear path. The marchers virtually were swamped by the crowd. Many of the women testified before the com- mittee that they were insulted, man- handled and spat on in sight of police- men who gave them no aid. Others who swore they were eyewitnesses testified they saw no disorder. The committee held that, while some of the uniformed and special policemen acted with apparent indifference and made little attempt to check the crowds, the whole force should not be discredited. WHY GIRLS QUIT SCHOOL Less Than Half Go to Work Because Parents Need the Money, U. S. Experts Find. Washington, D. C.--"Vv'hy Girls Leave School" is the title of a bulle- tin issued by the United States u- reau of education, based on an in. qulry made by its experts into trade and labor conditions among girls in orcester, Mass. The claim that children are forced to leave school to work because their parents need the money is repudi- ated by the officials of the bureau. They found that from one-half to three-quariers of the girls at work in the factories could have had further schooling if they had desired it. Various reasons were assigned by the girls for their refusal to attend school longer, according to the bu- reau. Some said "they did not like school;" others "could not get along with the teacher and were not pro- moted," while nlany simply wanted to go to work. FAILED TO ASK RETRACTION Provision of Michigan Law Is a Large Issue In Libel Suit of Roose- velt Against Newett.

Newett. charging libel, are looking forward with great interest to a prospective ruling by Judge Finnigan, construing section 10425 of the Michigan com- plied laws, bearing on libel.
