Wahhinuton', April 30 It hits been
ainmc years since the. locust wrought
ruin to the harvests of Nebraska and
lespair to the hearts of the Nebraska
farmer, but there Is danger ahead, ac
cording to the Department of Agricul
ture. Exports believe that the spring
of 11)015 will see a great army of the
pests sweeping the lields of the country
mid although these experts believe the
.swiirms will not extend beyond Illi
nois no man yet lias been able posi
tively to forecast the limits of their
Might. The brood has been breeding
in spots from Cape Cod to Northern
Georgia and as far west as Illinois,
;ni(l although the Department experts
have traced the origin of the brood
back as far as 10IKI and have reduced
their periodic llighls almost to an
exact knowledge, they cannot tell in
which direction It will take Its flight.
The brood in question is the seventeen
.year vasiety, and they may be looked
tor the last week in May or the begin
ning of .June. It might be as well for
the farmers of Nebraska to be pre
pared for a visitation, although the
Insects may not head in that direc
tion. Senators of the middle west are
growing decidely nervous over the
question that is looming large on the
horizon of rate legislation. As soon
jis the general debate (or set speeches)
is over, the senate will have to specify
M)ino method on which the Inter--state
Commerce commission may base
their decisions. In all history only
one such method has been found, and
that Is based on distance In other
words, If a ton of freight costs one
eighth of a cent a mile in transporta
tion charges it must cost it just eight
times that, or one cent, to transport it
ight miles. While- this method would
be decidely to the advantage of the
eastern manufacturers and farmers it
would mean practical ruin for their
competitors in the Missouri and Mis
sissippi valleys. The fact that no
other absolutely mechanical method
lias been found does not serve to quiet
the uneasiness of the western men.
Senator lturkett acted as escort this
week for acting President Fairfield
mid Professors Cook and Shadd of
Howard 1'niversity when they visited
the White Mouse to invite President
Roosevelt to deliver an oration at the

clined the invitation to make an ad

the exercises for a short time.

EARLY FIRE IMPLEMENTS.
Appllnnced fined In Thin Country In
the Seventeenth Century,
Undoubtedly the first fire company
organized In this country wns formed
In New York lu 10."3. It wan called the
ProwlerH and was composed of eight
men, with 2&0 buckets, hooks and small
ladders. Where the buckets were ob
tained and whcthur'or not they were
In addition to those owned by the town
tho records fall to state. In 1070 Salem
purchased two or three dozen cedar
buckets, besides hooks and other Im
plements; also the selectmen and two
others were authorized to take com
mand at fires and to blow up and pull
down buildings when such action was
necessary. This practice appears to
have been much more common before
the use of engines than afterward.
Boston on Sept. f), 1071), ordered that
every quarter of the town should be
provided with twenty swohes, two
scoopes and six axes. The swobes, or
swabs, as they are now called, were
long handled mops that could be used
to put out roof fires. The general use
of swabs has long since disappeared,
but when a slight blaze Is beyond the
reach of a pall of water and more Im
proved apparatus Is not at hand a
long handled mop Is today the most ef
ficient article to be used. In Japan
these swabs may be seen on many roof
In 1G90 New York ordered that five
ladders and also hooks be made. In
Philadelphia no mention Is made of
public precaution ngalnst fire until
1000, when n law was passed forbid
ding the firing of chimneys or allowing
the same to become foul. Each house
was to have n swab, bucket or pall.
Another act was passed In 1700 order
ing every household to have two leath
er buckets. In the following year six
or eight hooks for the purpose of tour
ing down houses were ordered to be
BINDING THE FEET.
Thin Qnecr Chlnone Cnntnm In n Com
paratively Modern One.
China's custom of binding the feet of
Us women Is not as ancient as has
been supposed. A correspondent of
ono of the native Chinese papers
quotes from the letters of Yuan Mel,
who lived in the eighteenth century.
In ono of his letters Yuan Mel wrote
to n friend: "You ask me to get you a
handsome wife and ardently desire, as
your first requisite, that she shall havo
small feet. Surely you cannot bo ono
who admires true beauty. An admirer
of true beauty has his own individual
tastes, disdaining to follow the dic
tates of others. Our ancient literature,
In both prose and poetry, has many al
lusions In praise of beautiful women,
but lu no Instance touches upon small
"A work treating of the customs of
the Sung dynasty by Shen Yo says a
man's well made shoes are said to be
square, and a woman's round, at the
toe. In the T'ang dynasty, the first al
lusion to the feet of Yang Kwel Pel,
the court beauty, was about her silk
stockings. In one of Han Tung Lang's
poems, referring to a woman's feet, lie
says, 'Her six inch feet so bright and
sleek.' These allusions clearly point
to unbound feet."
Yuan Mel's letter concludes by say
ing that the taste of those who Ignore
the beauty of face and form Is deprav
ed. He laments that sensible men
should be so led away by a foolish
Orlitln of the OrniiKC.
It Is to India and to the Arabs as
middlemen that Europe, and through
Europe America, owe tho orange. The
orange crossed from Africa to Spain
with Mohammedanism, while probably
the crusaders are to bo thanked for
bringing It to Italy and western Eu
rope among their trophies of tho east.
The very name Is really Arabic "na
ranj" and of eastern origin, though
the legend that It comes from two
words meaning "elephant" and "bo
ill," because elephants ate oranges to
make themselves 111, Is absurd. Prob
ably In French tlio Initial "n" Is drop
ped off from narnnj, with the final
"n" of the Indefinite article, Just as
our "an apron" represents "a napron,"
and tho spelling with an "o" points to
false association "with "or" (gold).
A Good Kcnnon.
Two Irishmen wero digging a sewer.
Ono of them was a big, strong man

and the other one was a little, puny
man about four feet six Inches. Tho

one of them was doing more work than
the other. "Look here," he cried, "how
Is It that little Dennis Diigaii, who Is

Glancing down to his partner, Pat re
