has been made during excavations
which wore necessary to raise one of
the monoliths in the farrfcus prehis

right position. Tho mon engaged in
the work have found numerous neo
lithic implements which evidently had
been used in cutting and squaring the
stones, and, when blunted, had been
turned into the bedding on which, the
stones are supported. The discovery
is held to prove that tho unique spec
tacle of Stonehenge is anterior to
tho bronze age and that the structure
still visible was certainly built bqfore

Governor Babcock, republican, in an
interview on November 14, saidi , "My
idea as to tariff revision is simple. It
is this: Where by changed conditions!
tariff' duties have become exorbitant,
far beyond tho needs of protection, 1
wouhl.put them where they, would
protect labor, but not to a point that
would create a monopoly of trade and
raise prices to consumers. In other
words, if it costs $1 to produce an ar
ticle abroad and $1.40- to produce it in
this country I would favor a 50 per
cent duty to protect our workmen, but
I would not favor a duty of 200 per
cent, which would simply afford a
margin for increasing tho price to our
own consumers. There is no departure
from republican protective tariff prin
ciples in that. I am as ardent; an ad
vocate of the republican doctrine of
protection to American industries ' as
there is In this country. The question
this congress will be called upon to
answer is, Will It permit a tariff duty
to remain in force so as to enable a
trust to pay dividends on ' watered
stock? I want to give the small manu
facturer all the protection ho needs.
These small concerns, legitimately
capitalized, can pay dividends with a
rate of tariff upon which the steel
trust would have to pass its dividends
on its common and preferred stock."
A London cablegram to the Chicago
Tribune says: Preparations for King

The last Unitod States Mortality Bulletin
shows a marked doorcase in tho number of
deaths from Consumption.
Ton years ago tho official record showed tho
annual numbor of deaths out of 100,000 popula
tion to bo 245. The rocont Bulletin shows that
only 100 now annually fall victims to Consump
tion out of tho same numbor of inhabitants.
In 1890 tho averago lifo was 31.1 years; now it
is 35.2 yoars.
Thoso facts point unmistakably to tho actual
rotroat of tho grim monstor, Tuberculosis,
which is responsible for tho largost numbor of
