ALIENS ASK MONET
BALM FOE ABEEST
St. Patil, Minn., Aug. 10.Dam-
ages totaling $69,000 are demanded
from the United States by nine Rus
sians and four Austrians, who were
held ten months in jail in Interna
tional Falls by the federal authori
ties as witnesses in a civil action.
Additional recompense of $30,000 is,
asked in behalf of the family of a
fifth Austrian who died while in 'jail
at International Falls. The- cases
are being handled by the attorney
for the Russian consul general at
Chicago and, the Austrian consul here.
The arrest of the men came about
through their employment by the
Northwestern Construction company
on the St. Francis river between the
United States and Canada. Because
they landed on the American side,
the men were promptly taken in
charge by the general immigration
officers and then held as witnesses in
a suit brought against the construe
tion company for the alleged violation
of the alien labor law.. The govern
ment lost the case.
Father of Medicine.
Aesculapius was styled the father of
medicine and the god of medicine with
equal propriety, as it is not certain
whether he was half god or mere man.
His pedigree is involved in the mazes
of mythology. He is represented as
having practiced medicine so success
fully as not only to have prevented the
death of the living, but to have recall
ed the dead to life. Tradition says that
Jupiter, for some offense, slew him
with' a thunderbolt, and after his death
he received divine honors. One of his
whims was to invest the serpent with
a sort of sacred character as the sym
bol of veneration and also because of
its supposed power of discovering heal
ing herbs. A heroic sized statue of
him in Berlin represents him as lean
ing on a staff around which is coiled
a huge snake that rests its head in
friendly fashion on his arms. Aescu
lapius had two daughters, whose
names are preserved in modern Eng-
lishHygeia and Panacea.Philadel
When Connecticut Owned Chicago..
Connecticut once claimed the terri
tory Chicago now occupies. This was
at the close of the Revolutionary war,
when what is now Chicago was only a
ruined fort, built long before, and call
ed Che-caw-gou. In 1783 Massachu
setts, Connecticut, Virginia, North
Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia
claimed to own the territory west of
them as far as the Mississippi river,
although the territories of Massachu
setts and Connecticut were interrupted
by parts of New York and Pennsyl
vania. The line between Massachu
setts and Connecticut came a little
north of what is now Chicago. It was
Maryland that reduced these huge do
mains. Having no western territory
herself, she refused to accept the arti
cles of confederation unless the other
states would agree to cede the western
territories^to the confederation itself,
to be made in course of time, into new
Protecting itself against a glacier is
the peculiar problem that confronts the
town of Val4ez, Alaska. This glacier,
situated between mountain masses sev
eral miles away, has proved dangerous
in periods of long sunshine, when great
masses of ice sometimes fall to the
ground, releasing tons of water that
had been held in pools and ponds on
the glacier. The water rushing to the
town picked up trees and bowlders on
the way, often doing considerable dam
Hge, as in 1911, when 108 structures
were carried to the ocean. United
States army officers conceived the Idea
of preventing the recurrence of such
floods by the construction of a dike.
The dike is in a general shape, so
constructed that the town lies Within
the arms out of reach of the water. It
is 7,500 feet long and six feet wide,
constructed of earth. During flood
times guards patrol the dike ready to
give warning If any weakness or break
is discovered.Technical World.
The Good Birds Do.
The department of agriculture in
forms us that out of fifty species of
hawks and owls only four are actually
injurious to crops. One observer tells
us that he has seen with his own eyes
an owl of his acquaintance swallowing
nine field mice, one after another, un
til the tail of the last remained in evi
dence. However, in four hours, this
meal having been digested with no ap
parent effort, the owl was ready for
four more mice. The old hawk and his
wife will consume a round dozen of
mice each.during a single day, and in
two months' time their youthful brood
will devour a similar quantity. It has
been stated that a colony of hawks will
kill 10,000 rodents in three months'
time. We all know what damage mice
perpetrate in our grain fields. The
farmer may well spare a chicken or
two from his henyard in payment for
service rendered him by these birds of
prey.Countryside Magazine and Sub
i The House Centipede.
The common house centipede is not
a creature to be dreaded, although its
bite is more or less poisonous, but
there are so few cases on record of its
biting human beings that the danger
from this source may be said to be
negligible. On the other hand, the
centipede is a valuable destroyer of
other and far more disagreeable ver
min. According to a bulletin of the
United States department of agricul
ture, It feeds on houseflies, cock
roaches, moths, bedbugs and other
such pests. It does not eat holes in
blankets, curtains, carpets or furniture.
The centipede thrives in damp places,
such as bathrooms, closets, cellars and
conservatories it loves hot water pipes
and steam radiators. It is not an in-1
sect, but one'of tbe order of myriapods.
If by chance a person be bitten by a
centipede, bathing tbe spot with am

Can Take What He Wants.
When a government is in such de
plorable condition as have been the
last 20-odd governments of Haiti, the
money lender naturally towns the
body and soul. Whatever the gov
ernment possesses that the creditor
wants he can have. And the United
States has begun to find it very dis
agreeable to its interests to have the
Germans in such relationship to the
harbor of Mole St. Nicholas, partic
ularly since the Panama canal was
In 1911, the United States first in
sisted upon obtaining a representa
tion in the financial operations sus
taining the Haitien government. This
was done on the same theory that it
was attempted in China, namely, that
if the United States had a direct in
terest in loans, it could check any
move on the part of the other cred
itors that were inimical to American
interests. The United States ob

When the 1911 measure
unsuccessful by reason of a
sion of revolutions financed
by Haitien merchants, the
States contemplated consolidating the
entire debt of the republic, refunding
it through a loan from a first-class
American house, reducing the rate
of interest so that it would be less
burdensome to the Haitien people,
and handling through American
agents the collection and disburse
ment of the customs, in order to end
the grafting which was ruining the
The fact that such a scheme would
have ended the grafting was enough
to earn the opposition of all the Hait
ien politicians. Efforts were re
peatedly made to carry the scheme
through. Finally the European war
put a temporary end to European op
position and now the French inter
ests are willing to sell out. But the
Haitiens are still opposed to .the plan.
