BRANCH OF FAMOUS
WHITE ELfil TREE
Wood From Elm Planted By Quincy
Adams to Be Used at Southern
Washington D. C Jan. 30. John
Quincy Adams sixth president of the
United States Is credited with plant-
ing an American elm in the White
House grounds during hia presidency.
A piece of one of the branches of this
elm has been furnished to. the execu-
tive committee of the Southern Com-
mercial Congress by Col. Spencer
Cosby U. S. A. in charge of public
buildings and grounds. From this frag-
ment of an historic tree will be mnde
the handle of the gavel to be used by
the chairman of the Southern Com-
mercial Congress at its meeting in At-
lanta March 8 9 and 10. The head of
the gavel will be made up in sixteen
pieces of wood each piece representing
the forest wealth tit one of the sixteen
southern states united In the work of
the Southern Commercial Congress
These contributions of wood have come
in every case from the commander of
agriculture of each state and are duly
attested. North Carolina made the
first contribution sending long leag
pine as her representative wood. Geor
gia Texas and South Carolina have
also contributed long leay pine. Ken-
tucky and West Virginia have sent
oak; Missouri white oak; Maryland
chestnut; Alabama persimmon Mis-
sissippi magnolia etc. The slab on
which the gavel will rest is to be of
Georgia marble suitably Inscribed. The
contribution of wood from the White
House is significant for it will unite
the southern States the nation's cap-
ital and the memory of the great New
England president In a' gavel whose
raps are expected to lead to a new
union of the south along business lines
for the purpose of building a greater
nation through a greater south.

Delamater and Norris the producers
of "Beverly of Graustark" have spared
no means and their efforts have been
untiring in selecting the company for
a complete even and strong perform-
ance of Geo. Barr McCutcheon's ro-
mantic comedy "Beverly of Graus-
tark" and therefore in presenting this
delightful and charming drama they
feel that in the selection of the cast
they have been most happy and for-
tunate. They have been extremely careful
and cautious that the characters re
ceive a proper presentation and they'
feel also that the time spent on these
particulars has amply repaid them for
Ipbor and trouble spent. It is with
pleasure therefore that in presenting
"Beverly of Graustark" an enjoyable
evenings entertainment Is the result.

O EXPORTS OF HIGH-GRADC O
O AMERICAN MANUFACTURES. O
No greater tribute to the faithful
less and efficiency of the American
workman and American manufacturer
could be found In a condensed space
than the records of the bureau of sta
tistics department of Commerce and
labor which show the exportations of
what may properly be termed "high
grade" manufactures from the United
States. People In all parts of the
world are purchasing every month and
praotleally every day of the year the
most complex products of the Amerl
can workshop such as typewriters
sewing machines cash registers scien
title Instruments telegraph and tele
phone apparatus musical insttuuients
automobiles and other articles requir
ing superior skill in their manufacture.
Articles of this class are transported
to the most distant and out-of-the-way
places of the world the Islands of the
ocean and the distant Interiors of the
great continent with the calm con-
fidence that they will not only render
the service for which they were manu-
factured but continue that service for
such length of time as to Justify their
transfer from the place of manufacture
to distant communities not provided
with experts and facilities for repairs.
That this confidence In the products
of the American workshop Is justified
by experience Is Indicated by the con-
tinued and in most cases growing ex-
port trade In these articles.
Take sewing machines as an ex-
ample. A hundred million dollars
worth of these machines have been ex-
ported from the United States In the
last quarter of a century going to
every part of the world. In the single
year 1909 for example? the countries
colonies and islands to which sewing
machines were sent Included Madagas
car Belgian Kongo the Cauary Is-
lands French Oceania Asiatic Russia
Persia Aden Hong Kong Dutch East
Indies Paraguay Peru Dutch Guiana
Haiti Santo Domingo Dutch West In-
dies Egypt Turkey in Asia and Eu-
rope Siam Korea and Liberia.
Typewriters are another example of
complicated machines exported to dis-
tant parts of the world with confidence
that they can there be successfully
operated without return to the manu-
facturer for frequent repair. The value
of typewriters exported from the Unit
ed States since the fiscal year 1S97.
when they were first shown in the
statement of exports of the bureau of
statistics of the department of com
merce and labor is over 60 million dol-
lars and in 1909 they went to no less
than 90 different countries colonies
and islands including Greenland at
the far north-. New Zealand at the far
south Morocco In North Africa Siam
in the extreme Orient. Ecuador and
Bolivia in South America the Azores
and Madeira Islands in the Atlantic
Dutch East Indies and French Oceania
in the Pacific; Bulgaria. Servia and
Roumania in Europe; and Persia the
Straits Settlements and Korea in
r- ..1. : . . ....
.oii sisters are a still more re
cently developed item in our list of ex
portations. yet they were sent in 1909
to more than 50 different countries in
cluding nearly a score in Europe prac-
tically all parts of North and South
America to China Japan Asiatic Rus
sia and Straits Settlements in Asia;
to Australia. New Zealand and Philip
pine Islands in the Pacific; and to. var
ious sections of Africa.
The automobile which seems to re
quire careful and expert attention even
in the country in which manufactured.
goes in large numbers to all the grand
divisions and many of the principal
colonies and islands of the world. The
1909 figures show -exports of automo-
biles to 17 different countries of Eu-
rope to practically all of the countries
and larger islands of North America
to every country of South America: to
China. India Straits Settlements.
Dutch East Indies. Hongkong Japan.
Asiatic Russia and Siam in Asia; and
to Egypt. Portuguese Africa Canary
Islands French Africa and British East
and South Africa in that grand divis-
ion; the valuation of this class of ex-
ports having rapidly increased until
the figures of the calendar year 1910
alone show a total of 11 million dol-
lars. ' '
Musical Instruments of American
manufacture including organs pianos
and pianolas are evidently popular
the countries to which pianos and or-
gans are sent being approximately 75
and even pianolas the exports are num-
bered by thousands and the countries
to which they go approximately half a
hundred including China Japan Siam
New Zealand the West Indian Islands
the countries of Central and South
America and a dozen or 'more of the
countries of Europe.
Thus one might go cn Indefinitely
enumerating the products of the Amer
ican workshop of high quality and
complex character such as electrical
appliances phonographs metal work-
ing machinery shoe machinery wood
working machinery dental goods pho-
tographic goods mowers and reapers
and many other articles of this class
forming a very considerable percent-
age of the 800 milion dollars worth of
manufacturers exported from the Unit
ed States last year.
SCOLDING FOR SUMMER GIRLS n
Irate Vicar In England Dnourtc
.Their Coetum MutMd and Inv
moctost and Blames Motor Car.
"For some week past we have en-
joyed the presence of summer vis-
itors. But who derlaes their cloth-
ing?" Thui writes the vicar of Carla-
brooke lale of Wight in hi parish
magazine says a recent London dis-
patch to the New York Tribune. He
continues: "We can remember a time
when the English girl was a most at-
tractive creature. Look at Leech's
pictures in the old numbers of Punch
pretty tasteful and bright they
were a pleasure to look at
"But the 1910 female seems either
to be wrapped up in a bundle of rags I
with the least clean one spread over ;
her hat and tied under her chin or
else she dlscanU as much of her cloth-I
lng as ahe caa leaves her hat at
home and gets her head full of dust;
exposes her chest to every wind that
blows displays ankles that show the
solidity of her understanding runs
about th Island half-clad crumpled
and dust-laden. Is it to convey the
impression that they have all traveled
But the motorist deserves a line
to himself. He represents the last
arrogance of wealth. He comes hoot
ing squeaking bellowing tinkling
roaring or whistling with a piercing
scream to tell everybody to get out
of the way."

WAS NOT A BEAUTY LECTURE
Timid Little Woman Found Herself
Seeking Dress Hint at Federa-
tion of Club Women.
"The conservation of the natural re
sources of this country is one of the
paramount Issues before the American
people today and "
ine Bpeaxer adjusted her nose
Classes raised ber eyes confidently
from her manuscript to meet the ex
pressions of approval from the thirty
or more clubwomen of Iowa says the
Dea Moines Register and Leader. It
was a stupendous statement and well
worth- readjustment of one's pose for
the dramatic effect The speaker who
stopped now and then to look up from
the script waa neatly but - severely
tailored her hear was brushed careful
ly and not unbecomingly from her high
brow. There was not a curl nor a rip
ple of a marcel wave. Higher educa
tion waa writ large.
A little woman on the back seat in
common clothes seamed face and hard
hands fidgeted and looked startled at
such an intellectual outburst
"Excase me mum" she ventured
timidly as she nudged her neighbor
"is this Mme. Xo's beauty lecture?"
"It is not" was the grim rejoinder.
"It is the annual meeting of the official
board and chairmen of standing com
mittees of the Iowa Federation of Club
"Mercy!" ejaculated the woman out
of place. Then she "scooted."
Noyels by Weight.
Bernard Shaw's latest contribution
to the world's fund of wisdom is the
suggestion that fiction be sold or
bought by weight This certainly is
Mr. Shaw's profoundest utterance. It
marks the acme of his greatness as a
sage. By all means buy it by weight
then there can be very little ground
for complaint at the high price of
novels. Moreover Jt will be in direct
line with this popular movement to
buy groceries by-weight as a means of
solving the hlgh-cost-of-llving problem
and getting one's money's worth.
Perhaps also this Shaw system will
have the desired effect of limiting the
output of bringing the supply some-
where tear the demand. The present
method of buying it by the yard seems
utterly to have failed in this achieve-
ment That means of measurement
has not even proved wholly successful
with reference to Dr. Eliot's five-foot
book shelf which of course no one
but Shaw ever would have thought of
buying by the pound.
Wi One Has Fever.
In cases of excessive thirst that
arise from feverish conditions the
juice of half a lime poured over
cracked ice or mixed with charged
waters will give relief If slowly sipped
a little at a time.
It is often found that very hot water
taken by the teaspoonful will satisfy
thirst more quickly than ' any other
drink. The effect is heightened if a
few drops of orange lemon or lime
juice Is added or a half teaspoonful
of baking soda.
The main thing in thirst quenching
is not to gulp down great quantities of
liquid to take nothing too sweet or
too rich and to avoid ice water which
contrary to usual belief. Increases
rather than decrease thirst and
against which all doctors fight
