la constantly widening the scope of
( U ncttvltton.
To all the ofllcorn and worUorn
miiHt ho given the credit for this
flourishing condition of affairs. If
any Individual , however , Is to be
singled out for praise she Is Mrs.
L. M. N. Stevens , the Elaine woman
who succeeded to the presidency on
the death of Miss Wlllnrd. At the
opening of the convention this mornIng -
Ing It was qulto evident that Mrs.
Slovens enjoyed the highest regard
of the cultured women before her , as
she was required to stand for some
tlmo , bowing her acknowledgments
before the warm applause milmlded
ntiil allowed her to call the gathering
The convention mot In the Ninth
Street llaptlst church , the Intorloi
of which was tastefully decorated for
Iho occasion. A program of music
Mid prayer occupied the llrnt half
hour. The roll call showed nn attendance -
tondanco of upwards of tiOO delegates ,
while the number of other visitors
present Is twice as largo. The states

tion Inclndo Michigan , Now YorU ,
Nebraska , Kansas , California , Illi
nois , Indiana , Minnesota , I'onnsyl-
Tanla , Iowa and the DaUotas.
The annual address of the presi
dent wna the loading feature of the
opening session. In the course of
her remarks Mrs. Stevens touched
upon a largo variety of subjects , di
rectly and Indirectly relating to the
great problem of the drink evil. As
to the progress of the temperance
movement she spoke In the most con
fident language. Of particular sig-
lllcance. nho said , was the constant
ly Increasing participation of women
In the affairs of the world. Mother
and child am ranldly taking their
rightful place as the central
of the great world problem. The
president bad a good word to say for
Athletics as a promoter of temperance
nnd good morals.

delegates listened to the reports of
the national corresponding secretary ,
Miss Susanna M. 1) . Fry , and the na
tional treasurer , Miss Helen M. Bar
ker , also the reports of the young
women's branch by Mrs. Clara Par-
rlsh Wright , general secretary , ono
of the Loyal Temperance Legion
branch by Mrs. Helen 0. Hire , and
reports by the national superintend
ents of departments. Those reports
for the most part are of a very en
couraging nature and show the past
year to have been one of extraordin
ary activity in all departments of
the organization's work. A feature
of the session was the reading of mes
sages of congratulation from Lady
Henry Somerset nnd Mrs. Ormlston
Chant of Hnglnml.

Balsam as a Substitute for
Spruce in Paper Making.
BEST TREE OF NORTH WOODS.
Suggestions for a Separate Treatment
of Spruce and Balsam Fibres How
the Removal of Balsam from the
Woods Benefits Spruce.
Washington , Nov. 13. The Import
nncu of finding a satisfactory mibstl
Into for spruce for the mnnufncturo
of paper pulp hid to a commercial
study of the balsam Mr , which Mr.
Raphael 0. Xon , of the bureau of for
estry , has Just concluded.
The rapid disappearance of spruce ,
the best tree In the north woods for
the manufacture of pulp , has forced
pulp makers to UKO more and moro
balsam , and has brought that tree ,
once despised and neglected , Into n
very Important placo. Four years
ago practically no balsam was used by
pulp manufacturers , many of whom
are now using from li ! ( to ( ft ) per cenl
of It , The amount of balsam used
depends entirely upon the spruce sup
ply near whore the different mills
are located. Tlio smaller the amounl
of spruce available the greater the
amount of balsam used.
Pulp manufacturers find halsam the
best substitute for spruce which can
bo found In the north woods. Other
trees there are which , might servo
well for water pulp , but they are not
native to the country whore the mills
are located. Pulp mills are enormous
ly heavy and expensive , and the woo
must bo brought to them they can
not bo taken to the wood. The puli
man , therefore , in Ills choice of n sub
stltuto for his diminishing supply o
spruce , Is confined to the very few
species that grow In association will
spruce , and of thcso species balsan
Is at once the most abundant nnd the
The present method of making pull
out of balsam is to grind It or trea
it with chemicals along with spruce
Tlio results are not satisfactory. 11 al
Ham mixed with spruce produces ai
inferior grade of pulp. Mr. Eon sug
gests that It would bo much bettor 1
balsam were handled independent ! )
of spruco. Tlio balsam libers are no
nearly so tough nnd strong as those
of spruce , and tho" pressure of the
grinders , which are adjusted fo
spruce fibers , is too powerful for thi
fibers of balsam and they are ton
and weakened. For the same reasoi
the chemicals used in the trcatmen
of spruce libers weaken and dlssolv
the libers of balsam used in the same
strength. Examples of what can b <
do DO with balsam In the innmifnctun
of paper are found In Franco , when
the tree Is made to produce gooi
book papers. There not only th <
main trunk but oven the top of th
tree Is used.
The sllvlcultural features of th
balsam are related by Mr. Zen , wh
has studied the tree carefully througl
out Us range , but particularly In
Maine and tlio Adlrondacks. Sprue
has been cut for many years , whll
balsam has scarcely been cut at all
hence balsam is taking the plnco o
and is crowding out the spruco. Thi
change In species in the north wood
Is hastened by the great suporiorit
of balsam as a seed tree , for Imlnu
bears seeds every year , while th
spruce seeds only in seven years
These conditions make it apparent
how very desirable It Is that pulp
manufacturers should lisa balsam
wherever possible , for In doing so
they glvo the tree a chance to grow
and reproduce itself. This point Mr.
Xon brings out forcefully.
The results of Mr. Xon's work will
appear this winter in the form of a ,
bulletin published by the bureau of
HIMV AVorU Kill. . Muxlf.
Did you over hear of a telegrapher
who could play the piano ? If so , how
many ? Not bow many piano ? , of
course , bnt how many telegraphers.
Telegraph operators find that after they
have worked at u key for several years
their forearms and their lingers lose
that flexibility that Is essential to inn-
slclanly work on the piano. As many
of the men arc fond of music and have
pianos of their own they find it hard
to be cut off from the enjoyment of
the music they could make for them
selves if it were not for the strained
conditions of the muscles.
There are few other lines of work
tlint Incapacitate a man for picking out
the sharps and flats , but the telegra
phers say that they know few men In
their ranks who can use a piano with
When they sit down before one ,
their first move Is the old Impulse that
operating the key gives them. They
want to use that finger that they use
In sending messages , nnd they find It
difficult even after they struggle for a
long time to make themselves players
of more than ordinary attainments.
