Empire State Politics.
Empire state politics, always inter
csting to the country at large, prom
ise to bo even more than usually in
tereeting this year.
Every one concedes that in head
ing the third party ticket there with
Oscar S. Straus for governor, an ex
ceptionally strong personality has
been presented, although an unknown
quantity as a vote-getter.
The republicans have named a
strong ticket with Job E. Hedges as
their gubernatorial nominee, a man
of good repute and record, and an ex
perlenced campaigner, sure to stir up
enthusiasm wherever he goes. The
republican choice was made in a bar
monious convention, and the party
organization will be united behind
On the other side, the democrats
are still at sea as to their choice for
governor. The complete failure of
the DIx administration, and its pitiful
subserviency to Tammany influence,
make his renomination uncertain, as
well as hazardous to the party, which
is canting about for a more available
These conditions are naturally en
couraging to republicans, who have
good ground to hope to regain the
state government which was lost to
the democrats two years ago. For
the democrats to turn down Governor
Dlx will be confession of democratic
failure, while his renomination will
Invite back-fire in his own party. All
of which means that the Empire
state is in a fair way to be listed in
the republican column.
Indians in Council.
American Indians are to gather at
Columbus, O., during the week in
their second annual conference of the
kind. It is expected that 1,000 will
represent the 291,014 Indians In the
United States and Alaska at this nota
ble council of peace. Among them
will be men from many leading walks
in private and public life. No par
ticular problem calls together such
an assemblage; it is simply intended
as a forum where "the rights and
destiny" of the race may be dis
Such gatherings help us to appre
ciate the progress achieved by this
government In discharging one ot its
most delicate responsibilities. They
help the world to see how far we
have kept, and how far we have
failed to keep faith with these wards,
some of whom are standing with
the white men upon high plains of
public service. So far as the "rights
and destiny" of the American Indian
are concerned, they are within his
own hands, to be enjoyed and worked
out by his taking hold of the oppor
tunities granted him.
LIGHTNING-WHAT IT IS-H0WIT ACTS
By FRED G. PI.IMMER,
Geographer of the United States Forestry Service.
IX TWO PARTS PART II.
, That Defective Ten Per Cent.
A touch of humor is given to the
otherwise dignified congress of hy
giene by the professor who, assert
ing that 10 per cent of our popula
tion is permanently defective, pro
poses its elimination from society.
Included in this 10 per cent, are
paupers, feeble-minded, the crimi
nally-Inclined, Insane, epileptics and
acutely-diseased. They form, the
professor asserts, a burden upon the
other 90 per cent of people that
should not be borne.
What proportion of this efficient
90 per cent are social service and
charity workers, penologists, physi
cians and philanthropists we are un
able to Btate, but they and their
field of usefulness must be involved
in any proposal to eliminate from so
ciety those for whom they labor.
What would these reformers find to
do If their subjects and patients were
all done away with?
Of course, it would be splendid to
have a race unblemished mentally,
morally and physically. And to think
that we might have such a race by
resorting to the easy expedient of
eliminating the defectives is just too
tempting for anything. Strange that
we have not long ago adopted this
simple plan or should hesitate now a
moment to do so.
Indians and Marriage.
Leaders among Winnebago In
dians have claimed a respectful pub
lic attention In their efforts to disen
tangle their people from the intri
cacies of the old loosely-woven mar
riage customs prevalent among all
tribes and bring them to an observ
ance of legal methods. In the un
folding processes of racial advance
ment one of the sure signs of prog
ress is a rightful recognition ot the
estate of matrimony. These In
dians, therefore, have reached the
time when they, themselves, are no
longer content to abide by the sim
ple customs ' which suited them , in
their 'nomadic state.,, Not in the
manner of dross or love of external
show is the evidence of the Indian's
awakening to be found, but in his
appreciation of his relation to or
derly society, such as this circum
stance aptly illustrates.

Effects of Lightning.
Regarding the effects of lightning,
"The stronger bodies are shattered
with greater voilence on acconnt of their
resistance. It sometimes passing through
the yielding one without doing any dam
age. In a tree it scorches any
portion that Is very dry; what Is firm
and hard It bores through and gnashes;
the outer bark It scatters, the Inner lay
ers nearer the center It burets and cuts
up, the leaves it lashes and strips off."
Any lightning flash may be destructive
or fatal. The phenomena attending such
flashes may differ widely, and It has
been assumed that this difference is due
to the direction of the flash. In other
words. It makes a difference whether
the object was electrified positively or
negatively; whether the flash was
toward or away from it. The electric
flaah is so sudden that the eye cannot
catch the direction. In the case of
forked lightning, however, the direction
may be Inferred from the apearance of
The same flash may strike and blant
a number of trees, and the results may
be quite as curious and erratic as the
lightning itself. A tree may be scorched,
it may be stripped of its leaves, it may
be cleft longitudinally, or more rarely,
severed horizontally. Pieces of bark or
wood may be torn off in strips. One
half of a tree's crown may be withered,
the other half remaining unharmed.
Sometimes the bark Is stripped from only
one side, occasionally without a trace
of burning; at other times it may be
riddled, as by storms, with a multitude
of little holes. The lightning furrow on
a tree is usually single; but It may be
double, usually in parallel lines. Fur
rows may be oblique or spiral, the cur
rent in such cases following the grain
of the new, wood. If the tree is inflam
mable or Is rendered very dry by the
flash a fire may result. In other cases
the dry duff or humus at the base of
the tree is ignited by the flash.
The action of the flash in stripping
bark from a tree Is a subject still open
to discussion. It may be argued, on the
one hand, that the moisture contained
along the line of the flash is Instantly
converted into superheated steam, or
that the water is converted, by elec
trolysis, into its component gases, and
that the suddenly increased volume
causes a rupture On the other hand,
it is held that the flash requires an open
channel for its passage, and mechanically
spits off tihe bark. The fact that It
can follow the longitudinal fibers of a
tree would seem to support this idea,
is would also the phenomena of ful
gurites, to be mentioned later,
t'pward Flash Explosive.
A flash of lightning striking upward
through the tree from lis base acts as an
explosive. The trees may then be torn
Into small fragments, and caees have
been recorded where these appeared like
a piece of hemp. If the upward flash
Is less violent, the trees may be split
radially. The tops of trees have been
torn off, while the lower parts remained
uninjured. On the other band, the lower
portion of a tree has been demolished,
while the upper part felt to the ground
Lightning often strikes twice or more
than twice In the same place. Borne trees
favorably located for attracting the flash
bear seven or eight scars, all visible, and
determined by a stem analysis of the
trunk. The same U true regarding some
rocky ummits and buildings. But of W
cases recorded by one observer, twenty
one were repeated strokes on tree and
It haa been hetd. though not proven,
that the big trees of California are re
peatedly struck by lightning, and that
although not klllei, their leaders arc
broken and their tops stunted in con
sequence. The form of their bodies and the
shape of their crowns would seem to
favor this belief. Although giants, their
heights are much lower than would be
expected from the taper of their boles.
The effect of lightning on the ground Is
as remarkable as Its effect upon trees.
It may enter the ground without dis
turbing it or heating it, or it may tear
large holes or melt the surface. Although
lightning usually strikes the ground with
a vertical stroke. It sometimes comes
obliquely or almost horiswntally, plowing
long furrows. Sometimes It tears a circu
lar or funnel-shaped hole, and, when
striking sand, forms fulgurites. These
are hollow tubes, formed of the fused
materials, and may vary from one-half
inch to six Inches in diameter. Fulgurites
may extend twenty-five feet into the
earth, and be vitrified or glassy on the
Inside, and coarse grained or half fused
on the outside. Sometimes the fulgurite
has the form of an Inverted tree with
numerous branches and branchlets.
When lightning strikes solid rock It
may either enter the mass and form a
fulgurite tube, or it may be diffused over
Us surface, according to the conductivity
of the formation. In one case it may
split the material Into large or small
pieces, or it may fuse the surface, giving
It a vitreous coat, usually with nodules
or blisters. When these phenomena are
seen on high summits or prominent
points they may be considered evidence
of lightning strokes. The presence of
metals in the earth Increases the danger
of the stroke, and it is probable that
veins of metal favorably situated will
protect surrounding nonmetalllc areas.
It has often been stated that the major
ity of persons killed by lightning sought
refuge under trees, but this is not the
fact. More than one-half of such deaths
occur in the open, and less than one
quarter under trees.
Sammary of Conclusions.
1. Trees are the objects most often
struck by lightning because: (a) They
are the most numerous of all objects; (b)
as a part of the ground they extend
upward and shorten the distance to a
oloud; (c) their spreading branches In
the air and spreading roots In the ground
present the Ideal form for conducting an
electrical discharge to the earth.
2. Any kind of tree Is likely to be
struck by lightning.
3. The greatest number struck In any
locality will be of the dominant species.
4. The likelihood of a tree being struck
by lightning is Increased: (a) If It is
taller than surrounding trees; (b) if it
is Isolated; (c) if It Is upon high ground;
(d) if it is well (deeply) rooted; (e) If it
Is the best conductor at the moment of
the flash; that Is, if temporary condi
tions, such as being wet by rain, trans
form It for the time from a poor con
ductor to a good one.
5. Lightning may bring about a forest
fire by igniting the( tree Itself, lor- the
humua at Its ba?e . Most forest fires
caused by llghtnlns probably start In the
humus. i .

Child CItr by Mental Suggestion.
DENVER, fiept 2S.-TO the Editor of
The Bee: To many thoughtful minus
the most vital problem In the world to
day is the moral education of the child.
It ia comparatively easy to mould aright
the little mind and soul during the plas
tic, formative period, but If this Is neg
lected the result Is often a malformod
brain that may rule to ruin In after
years. Many parents and teachers. In
cluding the writer, have employed men
tal suggestion with remarkablo success
In character building. A brief outline
of the method may prove helpful to
some of the readers of Th Bee.
First win tho child's lovo and confi
dence. Explain to It that you wish to
help it develop a noblo. boautlful char
acter, and that If It will work with you,
you will surely succeed. Every morning
bave It repeat after you theeo or similar
words: "This day I will bo honest, kind,
pure and true. I will do uii I can to
make others happy. I can and will do
right." If It has any fault to overcome,
earnestly and Impresslvoly repeat to it
affirmations adapted to Its needs, and
have It alBO repeat them several times
each day and at bedtime every night,
but always when It Is in a passive, re
eeptlvev mood. For instance. If it Is sel
fish, say to it: "Deep down In your lit
tle ' heart you are kind and unselfish.
You will always do unto others as you
would have them do into you." Em
brace every opportunity to praise It for
the desired virtue. Experience proves
that If these affirmations are often and
thoroughly impressed on the child's
mind and heart, they 'will become in
tegral parts of its soul and the ruling
motives of life.
Every truo lite and every noble deed Is
Inspired by aa enlightened intellect, con
science and love. To develop these quali
ties In the child they must be constantly
appealed to and made the ruling motives
of conduct Teach It what la right and
wrong and wby, and urge It to do rlgbt
for right s sake, net from fear of punish
ment or hope of reward. Seek to have
it obey Its conscience aa the voice ot God
In its soul. Encourage It to do acts ot
kindness and helpfulness. Teach It the
laws of personal purity.- Impress upon
it that every good thought and act helps
to develop a beautiful soul the one ab
solutely essential condition of highest
happiness in this life and that to come;
that every evil thought and act deforms
Its soul and , must inevitably result in
misery and unhapplness.; Above all, ex
emplify in your own life what you would
have the child become. "Like begets
like;" an angry word excites anger: love
awakens love. By always living, think
ing and desiring the noble, the good and
the . true, you max.. hjosi. surely create
these conditions In tiw child:
When the little mind Is unfolding be
neath the mother's heart, then is her
golden opportunity to mould it as she will.
According .to the new psychology, every
absorbing thought and earnest desire she
entertains during the parental period is
telepathed to the forming brain cells of
her babe, leaving there its Impress of
good or III "a chisel that cuts to mar
or beautify the statue of a soul." There
fore anger, hatred, Worry and all unde
sirable mental states mut be carefully
shunned. She should cherish only beau
tiful, kindly; happy noughts and aspira
tions, and pray silently, earnest 1 v. ,wr
waking hour that her little one may be
wveiy, pure and good. She thus attunes
herself to all holy Influences, and the
power of the Highest will overshadow
her and fashion a beautiful soul-may
we not hope a great spiritual genius?
that will ever prove a joy to the parents
and a blessing to mankind.
