This Is on account of
<!h« camphor business. Un-
jtll recently the entire
•world has practically depended for its
■Bupply of camphor upon .Inpan, which
has' held a monopoly of the produc-
tion of that necessary article. But
Xwttie Germans have begun to manufac-
ture artificial'(aynthetlc) camphor on
' a largo scale, nnd thus are competing
, tn the market to an alarming extent.
It Is very necessary under the cir-
cumstances that the supply from
* Japanese sources shall be maintained,

trees which formerly grew plentifully

One chief, when captured nnd about
to be executed, said: "I have no fear
of death, I have taken ninety-four
heads and wanted only six more to

History tells us that the Spaniards
took possession of Formosa In the

among some of the tribes It has been
customary to tie them to a tree uud
permit them to perish.
Sickness Is supposed to be a punish-
ment inflicted by the spirits of the
dead. IJreams afford a medium
through which the spirits of the dead
communicate with the living. The
Atayal and Palwan groups believe the
virgin forests to be the abode of the
spirits of their ancestors, and on this
account trees within certain desig-
nated areas are never disturbed. Old
men and women have supernatural
powers of the kind usually attributed
to witches, and for this reason they

Formosa Is a bit; island -an large as
Sardlna and Corsica put together. It
Is 22,1 miles long and 75 miles wide.
More than half of Its entire area Is to-
kday In the possession of the savages
For some years past Japan has pur-
sued a rather Interesting m< thod for
the purpose of bringing about their
eventual subjugation She has estab-
lished a "guard line" all around the
mountainous interior, with small mili-
tary outposts at Intervals along It, and
has pushed this artificial frontier
■steadily forward, so as to restrict the
wild people to a slowly but surely di-
fly this means it was expected that
within fifteen years of the present
time the entire Island would be
•brought tinder civilized control. But
nommercial necessity has made neces-
sary a change of plan. Camphor must
be had, and it has been decided to
wipe out or pacify all the savages
within the coming year. They can
take their choice which It shall be.
Their numbers are not accurately
inown, of course, but It Is understood
that they are split up Into no fewer
■than 723 tribes, whose villages com-
prise from three to upward of three
Tho tribes nre divided Into nine
groups, which nre mutually hostile,
and which differ one another In cus-
toms and languages. Some, of them,
particularly at the south end of the
Island, have already been partly clvl
llzed, and there is even established
t'mong them a sort of rural free deliv-
ery mall service, by native letter car-
riers. In the central range of moun-
tains dwell the tribes of Ihe Vonuum
Croup, which nre very fierce and en-
terprising head hunters. In 190a they
\>ecamo so troublesome that, a military
.-attack was mado upon them, result-
ing In their partial pacification.
The Atayal, or nothern savages. are
the largest, utid most powerful group.
They look upon head hunting as tho
chief end and aim of existence A bu-
sman head Is necessary as an offering
5n all their religious ceremonials.
When a dispute arises between Indi-
viduals, decision Is awarded to the
one who first secures a'head. A lad
not lecegnlzed as adult until he has
taken a head. But It must bo the
Siend of a Japanese or Chinaman.

The only way to get the camphor Is
to chop the tree Into chips, which aro
subjected to a crude process of dis-
tillation, the vapor, when condensed,
being deposited in crystals on bamboo
screens. This Is crude camphor,
which comes to market In wooden
tubs. It Is refined by redistillation.

DAISY CAME FROM ENGLAND
Like the Pestiferous Sparrow, This
Import Also Has Become
From Memorial day to the Fourth
of July the large white daisies In some
form, dwarf or tall growing varieties,
are found In abundance, decorating
the unimproved grounds of suburban
country seats, and yet proving a daily
annoyance to farmers throughout the
hills and valleys of eastern Pennsyl-
vania, according to a correspondent
of the Philadelphia Re'ord No soot
er are the large daisies gone for the
season than Ihe little ox-eyes and the
oiher white and yellow blooms with
dark centers, known as July and Au-
gust daisies, and only exclamations
of delight nnd rapture are heard from
the appreciative youngsters who aro
"out a dalsymg."
While the daisies have been well
known both In censure and praise for
many, many summers. It Is only very
recently that the responsibility of
their Introduction Into this country
has been credibly fixed. Horsham
township Is declared to be tho offend-
ing community, and Sir William
Keith, first lieutenant governor of
Pennsylvania, tho Individual who
brought "the flower weed" over from
It has been a mystery to many
Pennsylvanlans, where the daisies
are the thickest and their history evi-
dently the most familiar, as to why
they have become known In the past
as "park weeds." Tho reason Is ex
plained when their source of Intro-
duction Is taken into consideration.
They received the name from Graeme
Park, tho Montgomery Aunty home
of Governor Keith.
Since the historic" Keith mansion

trcfw and 'shrubbery In Its famous
dooryar'd have largely died out, tho

HIGH MORALS IN AMERICA
Standard Higher Than In England,
American Tells British Royal
R. Newton Crane, senior counsel to
the American embassy In London,
told the royal commission on divorce
tn L'ngland recently that there Is a
higher standard of morality in Amer-
ica than In Fngland.
He admitted that divorce Is more
prevalent In this country than 111 any
other rountry In the world except
Japan, but contended this was due
to the fact that persons of respecta-
bility had rome to regard divorce as
a firmly established Institution, de-
signed to euro .unhni'plii'-ss.
J. A. Barratt, of counsel to the
American embassy, pointed out that
there are more varied causes for di-
vorce In European countries than In
tlit United States, in Austria "In-
vincible aversion," in Hungary "vexa-
tious mortification," In France "prodi-
gality and violent disposition," In Swe-
den "opposite of feeling and thought
amounting to hate" and In Formosa
"loquacity" are considered sufficient
grounds for divorce.
In Algeria, where there aro thirteen
causes, "previous wooing In which no
final acceptance or refusal has been'
made" was a causo of divorce. Bar
ratt ar®ied there Is not a single cause
of divorce In any state In this coun-
try that cannot be duplh ated in
The Deft Hand.
The Widow—Oh, Mr. Smith, you'll

CCi\iING IN SLOWLY
Ear'y Indications Point to Nomina-
tion ot truce by Democrats and
McNcal by Republicans
Oklahoma City, Oklu Out of &1
counties reporting partial returns,
Cruee seems to be the choice of the
democrats. The race Is close and
the complete returns from outlying
districts may change the result.
On the republican ticket Joe McNeal
seems to have been nominated .by u
small majority, with either Ferguson
or Fields as a second. B. S McUuire
In tbe First Ilistrlet, Dick T. Morgan
In the Second, and C. E. Creager in the
Third, appear to have been renominat-
ed on the republican ticket lor #on-
Scott Ferris of the Fifth and ("has.
Carter of the Fourth, democrats, were
renominated without opposition Ue-
turns are so Incomplete as to tail lo
give a bafts for a good guess la iho
Second dlstri' I with regard to the dein
ocratic nomination, and this is true in
the First di. i iet. Tbe indications are,
however, that E. L. Fulton was nom-
inated in the Second, and Itandolph
Cook in the First. James Davenport
was nominated In tho Third.
From returns so far It appears that
J J. McAlester has been nominated
for lieutenant governor, George lien-
shaw for corporation commissioner,
Charles West for attorney general, Leo
Meyer for secretary of stale and Rob-
ert Dunlop for stale treasurer.
The Grandfather Amendment clause,
from all returns obtainable was adop-
ted by a good majority.
In several eastern and southeastern
counties, the majorities were heavy,
while in some of the western counties
thev were light.
Tuesday's vote was not exceedingly
heavy, the total being approximately
ll'i.OOO, because of the increase in the
voting population since I'JUS. In sev-
eral precinc ts of Creek and Stephens
and Jackson counties, the election offi-
cers were short of ballots This was
duo largely to the fact that the voting
slrength had Increased rather than lo
