Rochster, N. Y. A state conven
tion that will go in political history
as one of the most remarkable of the
democratic party closed Friday by
nominating John A. Dix, chairman of
the party state committee and a
wealthy Washington county business
man, to run on a progressive plat
form of the widest type.
Regarding the platform there was
from the first little or no division of
opinion. But the candidate was not
chosen until Charles F. Murphy,
leader of Tammany Hall, who by
virtue of his 213 delegates was in a
position to control the convention had
canvassed the merits of no less than
"I said I would give them a upstate
candidate and I've done it," was Mr.
Murphy's comment on the nomina
tion. Mainly on acount of his office as
state chairman, but for personal rea
sons also Mr. Dix stood out against
the wishes of the leaders until after
the time set tonight for the conclud
ing session of the convention. When
he had once accepted the offer of
nomination the rest of the ticket took
only two hours to arrange.
Meanwhile 450 delegates waited
two hours jn convention hall until cer
tain what delegates they would
be asked to name. So numerous were
aspirants for places on the ticket that
no one ventured more than a predic
tion of who would be selected until
the leaders concluded their delibera
tions in the rooms ofMr. Murphy and
came to the hall.
The convention proceedings that
followed were marked by a smooth
ness which democrats say Indicated
the harmony of their organization.
Congressman William Sulzer was
the only other candidate for the
nomination of governor who took his
case before the delegates, and his de
feat was decisive. Out of 450 votes
he received but 16.
John A. Dix is 50 years old, having
been born in Glens Falls, N. Y., In
1SC0. He was graduated from Cornell
university in 1SS3. His business
career be began with a lumber firm.
In 1SS9 he married Miss Gertrude
ROOSEVELT OPENS CAMPAIGN.
First Speech Praising Platform and
New York. Theodore Roosevelt,
addressing the National Republican
League, in session at Carnegie ball
Friday, delivered his first speech of
the state campaign. Praising the
platform and Henry L. Stimson. the
republican nominee for governor, he
compared the republican convention
with the democratic meeting now be
ing held at Rochester, and on the
strength of bis comparison said he
felt the republicans had the right to
appeal to every decent citizen in the
state, without regard to party affilia
tion, to vote their way. The Saratoga
gathering he styled a "people's con
vention," free from the influence of
STIMSON STANDS ON HIS RECORD
Says He Is Not Ashamed of Former
New York. Although declining to
talk politics, Henry L. Stimson. re
publican candidate for governor,
frankly stated that he did not propose
to disavow his connection with Unit
ed States Senator Elihu Root or his
services as an attorney for corporat
tlons in tne past. "I am proud of hav
ing worked with Mr. Root, whom I
consider one of toe great men in Am
erican life today," said Mr. Stimson.

Franklin through the heart. The ne

Frost Does no Damage.
Omaha. Light frosts were reported
over practically all of Nebraska Mon
day night and parts of northern Kan

ever, no damage reported to the corn

where a cold snap can be harmful to
it. The lowest temperature reported

mometer fell to 42 degrees with a
light frost. "Frost on all our lines

A Fall Runner Set In a Box.
This plan of setting strawberries is
better than spring planting. Want of

causes neglect In the work, while in
the fall one has ample time. The
vexation of caring for the runners
and the weeds Is avoided, writes J. H.
Haynes in Farm and Home.
We do not Intend this for the com
mercial planting of arge areas, but for
the farm home garden. A bed well
cared for will produce better berries
and fully as many as spring set beds
of same size. With extra care they
will double the yield of spring set
tings. We select our ground and get it In
the best possible condition for plant

If you want extra large crowns and

four runners to set. distributing them
equally in the spaces so as to make a
uniform bed. All weeds are kept out
and the soil loose. By late fall the
plants will show enormous fruiting
crowns and attain a large size.
Such beds do not requre much win

foliage they carry. But one can give
the bed a small coat of straw, but
care must be taken to remove the
straw in early spring.

Where one has the room and is ar

Idea to arrange double yards. In other
words, for each pen of chickens have
two yards (not necessarily large),
one to be kept for growing green
stuff while the other is being pas
tured. In that way the poultryman
can have pasture for bis fowls almost
the year through In the south, says a
writer in Baltimore American. For!
this purpose there are a great many
different things that can be grown,
such as oats, wheat, rye, barley, tur

The queen bee is the mother of all
bees, and one fertilization is sufficient
during her entire life of usefulness.
Therefore, by simply replacing the
queen with a purely mated Italian
queen the entire colony will be
changed to that race, and if the change
is made during the summer months,
the change will be completed in about
three months' time.
Moth worms are practically un
known In apiaries of Italians or their
crosses. To get rid of the moths in
hives of black bees remove the black
queens and introduce untested Italian
queens in their place, and as soon as
the bees of the Italian strain begin to
hatch they will make "short stay" of
the moth worms.

This method of alternating, plowing

purpose for which it was originally
planned, but the additional advantage
of completely covering up all filth and
putting a fresh surface in use. Tho

former. Some poultrymen claim the
advantage of permanent pasture,
which is so good so far, but such
green stuff is not eaten and relished
in such amounts as fresh growing
green stuff, and we are sure the bene
