At the outbreak of the Civil War Colonel Schlaudecker was Major-General of the Twentieth Division of the Pennsylvania militia, and before the first call was made for troops he offered his services to the Government. When President Lincoln Issued his call for volunteers Col. Schlau decker resigned hla command as Major-Gen- eral and enlisted as a private in what wao known as the Erie regiment of volunteers. In fact, he personally recruited the regi ment and was elected Its first Major. Three months later he received from Secretary of War Stanton a commission as Colonel, with orders to raise a regiment. The One-hunclrul-and-eleventh Pennsylvania Volunteers was the result, and that regiment fought valiantly throughout the war there being of those who had originally com poseo tne eomr.tana only 137 remaining when the war ceastd. While in command at Harper's Kerry Colonel Schlaudecker on four occasions confronted Stonewall Jack son successfully, although with a much Inferior force, causing the Confederate Gta- His "Sijj.-S a .;, . eral to change his front, and thus relieving General Hanks, For these and oHler services the Colonel received a vole of thanks from Congress. Colonel .Schlaudecker was boru In Itavsria, Germany, ami received his military training In the German army. MEMORIAL SERVICES AT THE CHURCHES.

Plans for Ridding the State of a Destructive Insect Pest Devised by University Scientists. To find a way In which to overcome the "vine hopper," the destructive InFcct which is doing much damage iu the vineyards of the State, Is a problem on which the agricultural scientists of the University of California are working. Professor C. W. Woodworth, the entomologist, has returned from Fresno, where the University has established a temporary laboratory for the study of the pest. He spends several days each week ln the neighborhood of Fresno, Investigating the habits of the insect. The vine hopper has appeared In the San Joaquin valley and other partB of California by myriads. Unlike most insects It is active at all seasons of the year, never hibernating. It does most Injury ln the vineyards, where It sucks the leaves and grape stems, greatly injuring the quality and quantity of the yield of the vines. It also attacks other forms of vegetation. With the growth of the grape industry the vine hopper has grown more common. As the insect breeds at all times of the year, the only way to destroy the pest is to destroy the adult insects. Professor K. W. HIlKard, dean of the College of Agriculture, has devised a method of ridding vineyards of the pest, which he is anxious to see put ln practice. It is to mount a suction apparatus operated by a gasoline engine, upon a wagon, and drive It up ar.d down between the rows. A large funnel Is to be operated on each side of the wagon. As a man1 walks through an Infested vineyard, the vine hoppers rise In cloudB. With a sufficiently powerful suction apparatus, with twenty-four-lnch blowers, the Inserts would be drawn Into the funnels, trapped and then destroyed. "The only way to destroy the vine hoppers Is when they are on the wIiir," said Professor Hllgard. "A suction apparatus could be easily constructed, for blowers can be obtained at the drying-houses, and most farmers have gasoline engines. Co-operation Is necessary to obtain results." Tho University has been aided In Ub Investigations by the Fresno Farmers' Club. NEW ADVEKTISEMKXTS. DOCTOR MEYERS & CO. 731 Market Street. -arf v.fiK-' - .1 r 't, -v 1 i CONTAGIOUS BLOOD POISON. PU.

Salaries Cannot B Paid Until Late in the Month of July. FALSE HOPES WERE RAISED. Board of Education Financier Mistake a Dt-bit fcr a Credit Entry in the State Figures. According to the Auditor and Treasurer th May sulurles of teachers ln the School Department will not be paid until late ln July, and then payment of Juuo aalarles will be a matter of after couHkleration. As for the $iO,noO of mlacellaiieous bills for supplies and building material furnished the School, Department, it was said that the merchants who cannot register their demands in the City Treasury may lose the money, as the bills were contracted in vio lation of thu One-Twelfth Act. Tho School Directors held a meeting Friday evening und adopted a resolution to pay tho May galarles In full, and to liquidate April bills of $1S,000 in July. This action was based on an alleged discovery by Di rector Gallagher, Chairman of the Finance Committee, that $91,000 due by the Statu but not shown In the controller's flgurei had been found, and It could bo drawn upon for May balaiks. The meeting was called hurriedly for the purpose of adopting a resolution to pay the teachers for May. At It Director Waller addressed himself to the press to explain how It became possible to pay sularies when a deficit of $130,750 was in the school fund. He acted under an arrangement with the Solid Nine, and Secretary Chalks Welch, acting for the majority, refused to show the financial (statement which was read indistinctly by a clerk. The suspicious actions of the Secretary and the finance operators failed, however, to produce the desired impression, that ell bills for the fiscal year would be paid in full. The Directors pretended that U10 miscellaneous bills amounted to $18,000, whereas the correct figures are between $40,uoo snd $ou,0uo; and this was only a specimen of tho attempt to create a favorable Impression. The truo figures as compiled yesterday are as follows: Amount audited $1,142,240 l2 tsliinate of muney to be pant by ScIkmjI ISuard: ' April simp salaries- $1,500 May salaries, total Dl.lMJ June salaries, tutul Ul.OOU liills estimated by Depart- meut 40,000 223. 500 00 $l,:iti.1,74l! 02 Appropriation for year 1.200, two 00 Deficit $105,740 02 Ksieess from Slate fund, not to exceed 35,000 00 Net deficit $130,74(1 02 "I don't want to see the teachers In this dilemma," said the Auditor, "thinking they will get their May salaries when there is not enough in the treasury to pay half of them. Nothing has occurred to reduce the deficiency in the school fund, and instead of an increase of $91,000 ln the State money as estimated by the School Board, at most it couldn't be over $20,000. The figures are just the same as they were before the Directors' meeting. The outstanding bills against the School department are equal to tho school money now in the treasury. The School Directors are figuring on receiving money which the city has to pay the State. June salaries can't bo paid." In the treasury it was learned that the April salaries were paid out of tho Sinking Fund, from which $100,000 was taken for that purpose. As matters stand, the teachers aro In a predicament over their salaries which iu all probability will not be paid until the middle of July, unless Treasurer Reis takes the risk of paying them out of another fund AFTER THE JWILKMEN.
