If "Mike" Harrington R t srticular about his company ' has professed to be, he will soon "' ueaking hack to first base. , - 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 the ticket. 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 man. , 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 cussed. 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. The socialists accuse the colonel of trying to break into their camp. They might not object perhaps except for the conviction that if he breaks into their camp he will also break it up if he is not permitted to run it all by himself. Woodrow Wilson declares that he feels greatly encouraged by his re ception in New England. - William Jennings Bryan once made an expedl tlon into "the enemy's country," and expressed himself equally encour aged. . i . . Effects of Lightning. Regarding the effects of lightning, Seneca wrote: "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 phenomenon. 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 Intact. 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 buildings. 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 . OX I Nebraska Homaae Society. OMAHA, Sept 28.-TO the Editor of The Bee: The Nebraska Humane society la organised for the protection of chil dren and prevention of cruelty to animals. This object must appeal to every man, woman and child of our community. The society has Ju.st been reorganised and la prepared for active work. We need J1.000. If we can secure this, another $1,000 Is pledged. Does not this work appeal to your readers to the extent of $1. J. A. TANCOCK, President H. 8. MANN. Secretary. 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.

The business world, which Includes nearly everybody, begs to be excused. Boston Transcript: Champ Clark can not be accused of sulking In his tent. H-j comes out of his tent and sulks in public.

Miss Lucy Goode White has been elected president of the California League for the Protection of Motherhood, wliich was organised with 100 charter members.
