Ecclesiastcs H.2. Text, "A Time to Plant." "There are times for everything un- der the sun. A time to plant and a time to it is useless to plant before the planting season. No wise forester will try to shift shrubs! or put them in his garden except n lato autumn-or early spring. He knows that every plant is controlled by tho law of seasons. Generally speakins the same law applies to the physical, intellectual, and spiritual kingdoms. There is a season for the planting of physical, educational, and spiritual seed: that season Is youth. There are some things we can only get when we are young; such as a sound education, business habits, con- centration, and self control. Must Plant Religion Early. "Religion, too, must be planted in early life. Do you know that the church spends SO per cent of her time and money on the adult? Yet statis- tics tell us that only con- versions take place after the age of twenty. From 18 to 23 years of age our young people, for the most part, settle- main outline of their char- acter, and thereby determine their hlstry. TVhat enters into the first of life enters into the whole of life. "What I want to do now is to you young people that you are in the planting time of your life.

SENATE TAKES" UP ISSUE Washington, supple- mental report on' the Illinois river improvement project was aaked of M-aJ Gen. Taylor, chief of army engineers today by the Senate commerce commit- tee, which is considering the House rivers and harbors bill. The report was requested with a view of clarifying recommendations of the engineers on this subject, one of the most controverted in the bill. It was declared the new report probably would disouss diversion of water from Lake Michigan, around which the fight revolves. Chairman Jones said that the en- gineers had up to this time avoided any reference which could be Inter- preted by the courts as Its view on the diversion question, and members of the committee said it was not expect- ed that the chief of engineers, would say anything which would be material for either side In the controversy now pending In the supreme courtj Great Lakes Interests fighting the di- version of water .trom Lake Michigan delivered an attack against the Illinois river project today before the commit- tee. Another Purpose Representative Burton, Republican, of Ohio, one of the leaders in the fight over the subject in the House, as- serted the plan was for the purpose of obtaining permission from Con- grass for the diversion of water from one watershed to another under the pretext of diversion for navigation purposes. He said that the divwrsion up to the present had been solely for sanitary lurposes, and that injuries to merce would be-Irrepai.-able. Of the fall in the lake. levels in re- cent years he attributed six inches to diversion and the remainder to lack of normal rainfall. This lowering of levels, he said, had caused an annual loss of to .he lake Chipping Interests and had cost the shipper at least an- nually In increased freight rates by railroad. Wouldn't Remedy Condition He insisted that the regulatory work n the St. Claire river or elsewhere would not remedy the condition. .Representative-Burton was contra- dieted by Chairman Jones and Senator 'opeland. Democrat, New Tork, when he w.ld the House provision would commit Congress to the present diver- sion of cubic feet per-second. Declaring; It would take three years or Chicago to complete its part of he Illinois river Improvement, Burton rgued that there was no need for maty legislation, and urged that Con- gress permit the whole matter to go ver until the supreme court had ren- lered Its decision in the two Chicago Inversion cases now pending.

Saker, appearing as general counsel or the Lake Carriers' association, pecial associate of the Ohio attor- ey general, expressed doubt that the ecretary of war is empowered to au- horize substantial diversions from Lake Michigan.

THREE HELD Ironwood Youths, Just Re- turned From Detroit, Ar- rested in Hurley. Three Ironwood Johnson, "Wilfred Anderson and 'Tony Rysischak are being held, at the county Jail in lurley for flashing guns in the saloon if Roger Severini on Silver treet In Hurley late Sunday night and a fourth man, George McMullen, made ila escape. An Investigation probably will be nade to determine the exact nature of he gun play in the -saloon. The cry vent up last night that the tbree men irere trying up the place and hat .one of the three men "made a ireak" for the cash register but lost his lerve. The story told by the young men is lulte different. They were foolish in the words of Johnson, to ake pistols with them when they went o Hurley and after having a quantity if liquor the guns were brought into ilay. One of their party was threat- ined, he said, and the guns were whipped into action. But they were 't fired. Gordon Paynter, Hurley policeman, hot twice at one bf the men as they ried to escape frtim the police and one f the men stumbled and fell, which nded-the chase as far as he was con- erned. .The three young men are expected o be arraigned in county court to- morrow morning, depending on whe ler circuit court is entered so that le district attorney may appear as rosecutor. They recently returned ere from Detroit where they were the Fisher automobile bo- y plant and deny that they sought to old up the place, saying they had lenty of funds.

Mil [ME IS TOLD Notification of This Step Cre- ates Consternation in League Circles. WOULD PACIFY NATIONS vOeneva, June hM n. signed from the League of Nations. Notification of this atop, received by cable today from Foreign Minister Pacheco at Rio Janeiro, created con- sternation in League circles. The- withdrawal follows Brazil's earlier act in resigning from the Lea- gue council because of the refusal of the powers to grant 'her a permanent seat simultaneously with Germany, who was promised one at the Locarno conference. officials, basing their opinion on Ambassador Mello Franco's speech in which he said he would await the final report of the council reorganisa- tion commission, had been confident that the. Rio government would not take the final step until the European chancellories' had the opportunity to try diplomatic negotiations. Would Pacify Nations. The powers planned to pacify Bra- zil and Spain by promising them sup- port for regular reelection as non- permanent council members, thus giv- ing them, in effect If not in name, per- manent membership. League still doggedly hope that the entrance of the new Brazilian president. Washington Luis, this fall may bring a. change in the Rio govern- ment's League policy as carried on by President Bernardes and his foreign minister, Senof Pacheco.

Brazil reduces membership to 58 "states, this number including Argentina, who, although she has not yet ratified the covenant, pays dues and is represented both the dis- armament and the council reorgan- ization commissions. It is thought by some that Argen- tina will now play a leading role in Geneva, in place of Brazil. Never- theless, the Brazilians move comes as a big blow. It is feared this may be followed by a similar action by Spain, as both nations have been in the same boat, with Spain announcing categorically that she refuses to be classified as a secondary power, which non-promotion to a permanent would signify, in her eyes.

Questioned at great length, he testi- fied that "citizens of the state" were expected to pay and again that "man- ufacturers" were looked to to make up the amount, but he steadfastly refused to mention any names. Asked directly whether be had any member of the Mellon family in mind as a possible source of help, the wit- ness replied in the negative. The note was signed by Grundy and Tolwell after Grundy had made a long succession of advances amounting to for which he received "re- ceipts." and Folwell said that he was confident if all othe.r sources failed rrundy could make good the also.
