Dr. Ilenry 8. Pascal of New York
city, who baa made a study of clima
tology, was asked by a Now York
Times reporter what the thousands of
delegates to Denver must avoid and
also keep In mind to maintain their
normal physical conditions.
"There are certain classes of men,"
said Dr. Pascal, "who are affected se
riously by the change from tbo sea
level to an altitude of 6,000 feet Den
ver la exactly one mile above the sea
level, fl.290 feet. Persona with hard
ned arteries or any tendency to heart
trouble or llrlgbt's disease are apt to
have acute attacks upon suddenly
moving to high altitudes. Men of these
types should avoid, worry and excite
ment and should'ge't plenty of sleep or

vere according to the altitude and
somstl men lasts fur xeveral days. It Is
accompanied by beudacbe, nausea, gas-tro-lntestlnal
disturbances and acceler
ated pulse and respiration. The rare
ficatlon of the ulr lu high altitudes Is
responalbto for these conditions, bring
Ins about changes In the circulator)'
system. In Denver one breathes In SCI
per cent less oxygen than at the sea
level. This decrease In oxyges causes
deeper breathing In order that the
blood may get wSiat It requires; deeper
breathing causes greater muscular ex
ertion, and this Is the reason tubercu
lous patients are benefited In Denver.
Bat persons with Incipient consump
tion who go to the Denver convention
must be careful and take It easy until
tbej are acclimatized.
"Those with ISrlgbt'a disease often
have a hard time when they go Into
mountainous districts. Acute attacka
of the disease often supervene, and
the attacka are made worse, of coarse,
by heavy eating and drinking.
"On the other baud, tbey get over
the acclimatization period with com
paratively trifling discomfort If they
are careen auoui eating ana annsing.
Tuberculosis patients must be very
moderate Indeed In the matter of
food and drink when they go to such
an altitude in that of Denver If tbey
would avoid ucute attacks. If they be

their residence In nu allltudlnous coun

'The gnstro-lntestthal disturbances
that come nu without apparent cause
nmoug tliot'-e who visit tho mountains
must be attributed to tbo altitude.
"Elderly or old crsous with harden
ed arteries or those who have at somo
period suffered slight attacks of paraly
sis actually run risks when they visit
a place as high as Denver. Such per
sons especially must avoid fatigue for
the first few days, and excessive eat

things for them.
"Acute Itrlght'8 disease Is not com
mon lu Denver, but It Is particularly
severe there when It does occur. Stim
ulants arc more likely to produce such
physical disturbances than at the sea
"Another thing that those who pro
pose to attend tliu Denver convention
would do well to bear In mind Is that

altitude, by trivial vauses and In those
who arc overworked mentally. Again,

GREAT PHOSPHATE BEOS.
Latest Find en a Paelflo Island Bur
pass Any Yst Discovered.
Nothing In recent years has contrib
uted so much to Increase the economic
Importance to tbo ocean world as the
discovery here and there of great beds
of phosphate. These aeries of new
finds among the islands began nliout
twelve years ago, when a Ilrltlsh sur
vey vessel, dredging In the Indian
tcenn, brought from tho depths n piece
of phosphate that was traced to the
neighboring Christmas bland, on unin
habited rock where some ttondrcda of
men now find employment bi the phos
Then came even more noteworthy
surprises. Large beds of phosphste
were found on Ocean Island, over
which no country had taken the trou
ble to raise Its flag; on the erertnan
Island of Nauru, west of the (alliens,
and on Maiden Island, a llrttbih rock
far south of the Island of Hawaii.
All these little Islands bad been un
considered trifles In the ocean world,
but now there Is always n ship or two
off their shores and the bustle ot a
mining camp on tbclr small surfaces.
The latest find surpasses ever) thing
yet discovered, says the New York
Bun. Makatea, only four and n half
miles long and one and n half miles
wide. Is just now the most tallied of
bit of land In the eastern Pacific. It
stands In the Paumotu group, nhnut
120 miles- northwest of Tahiti. The
engineers who have lieen studying Its
phosphate beds estimate that It con
tains at least .W.rjm.OOO tons of the
richest of phosphates, the nnalyscs
revealing from 05 to 8." and even 00
per cent of pure phosphate. The Island
rises to 230 feet nbove the sea, has no
lagoon, nnd Hie work of prospecting
for more lieds Is not yet completed.
Preparations are now twlng made nt
an exponso of $.V).0(X to extract the
deposits at the rate of 300,000 Ions a
Phosphates have also tecn found on
Nlau and some other atolls of this
archipelago. Such discoveries of great
natural wealth In tho Pacific nre cer
tain to stimulate mure thorough ef
forts to ascertain the extent of the
natural wealth which (he myriad Is
lands have to offer the world.
PRESIDENT'S TIMELY JEST.
Postmaster Qsnersl Mads Hsppy by
Ourprlss Return of Lost Watch.
Postmaster General Meyer dropped
Into the White House for a few min
utes' chat with President Itoosevelt
tbe other morning.
"Dy the way, can you tell me the
timer" asked Mr. Itoosevelt as Mr.
Meyer was about to take his leave.
"My watch Is not going."
"That reminds me," exclaimed the
postmaster general. "I don't know
whether mine la going or not, but
there Is no question that It's gone. I
lost It somewhere yesterday."
"Well, I will show you that a watch
can be gono and going at the same
time," replied the president. Then bu
walked to his desk, oiiened a drawer
snd took out a handsome gold time
piece which Mr. Meyer recognized as
McDermott, a cavalry sergeant, for
several years the president's orderly,
riding on a recent afternoon nt a re
spectful distance behind the presiden
tial party, which Included tbe poetnias

president himself undertook to return

Ponlsrds In the Hair.
New Tork coiffeurs are trying to In
troduce the Italian fashion of wearing
a tiny poniard In the hair. 'Tin n
pretty Idea, even If a tilfle murderous,
for In King Victor's realm the orna
ment often has a more practical and
thereto tragic use than to serve as a
coiffure skewer. Dut, since the New
York woman has been trusted safely
tiVtbtbe hatpin, doubtless the iionlard
may bo confided to her care with equal
safety, says the New York Press.
Many of those made for women In
New York are copies of tho fifth cen
tury models, with Jeweled hilts nnd
blades almost as slender as bodkins.
Tbey flash gloriously against dark
hair, but they are not so effective for
blonds. However, there Is no ques
tion that light haired women will wear
them If the brunettes do. The blonds
complexion Is not as positive as that
of her olive skinned sister, but she Is
not seen 'frequently In the extreme
rear of tho social procession.
NEW SUNSTROKE CURE.

Blow Spelling lErfurm.
Willie some of the pcilodlcals adhere
rigidly to the phonetic spelling, It Is
noticed that score of new American
books nre published overy )ear with
the very old st)le of spelling for many
words. In fact. It seems lis though pub
lishers are going backward Instead of
forward In the matter of spelling.
Words like "honour," "favour" mid
"humour" had taeniae rare in Ameil
can print before the spelling reform,
but this form of spelling not only per
sists; It seems to be more In evidence
every year. In these same prints the
Ilrltlsh style of using "s" where we In
variably use "z," nB In "civilise," nnd
"x" where "ct" Is preferred In America
and some other variations from rou
tine spelling are found.
No copyright Ilrltlsh works for which
the tyim is set by printers tu Kugland
are now- Issued here. The International
copyright law provides that copyright
can Issue In t' Is country only upon
books printed ,im t)pe set within the
limits of tbe I oiled States. Therefore
It Is not a iiiuio custom of spelling
among English typesetters which puts
the Kngllsh form Into so many books
sold In America. Hut books set up
and printed In America may be sold In
England, and tho New York Mull says
that the desire of our publishers to
cater for sales In Ilrltlsh territory lends
them to "humour" English prejudice
In the matter of spelling because the
Americans who are to read those some
books do not caro what the spelling Is.
Strange as It may seem. In the face of
all the lecturing of spelling reformers
there are many Americans who rather
like the old style which they first met
with In works printed in England. In
social Invitations the spellings "favour"
and "honour" appear to bo more com
mon than they were a few years ngo.
Apparently the general public in Amer
ica docs not caro very much either w ay,
nnd so while the few nre making vio
lent changes still others nre Inclined to
return to tho old classic standard.
As to the cause of the recent explo
sion on the battleship Tennessee, - n
practical engineer says: "Never mind
who made the tubes. Tell us how
much the water column showed und
when the boiler was opened up nnd

why she let go."
