order to make the absorption
lete, the incorporation of a new
0,000,000 company, it is expect
ed, will be secured to include the
$592,475,400 of bonds and stock of
the American Telephone eompany,
known as the Bell company, and the
outstandling $165,000,000 of bonds
and stock of the W.stern Union.
The acquisition of the necessary
stock and voting rights of the West
ern Union by the Bell company has
been in progress for about six
months. The work has been conduct
ed quietly and only a sufficient
amount ito insure control, said to be
51 per cent., was taken over.
- The officers of the Bell company
regard the step as one of economy
solely. They point out that ever
since the telep1hone has been a factor
.in human life, it has had to compete
with the telegraph. Lines have been
paralleled and there has been an im
mense amount of duplication. The
officers of the telephone company
believe that the merger will save the
Bell. company $75,000,000 in new
construetion while it will also enable
the utilization at the same time of
wires for both telegraphing and tele
?The history of the Western Un
ion dates back to before the Civil
-war, but the Bell company is of com
paratively recent origin. Both com
panies pursued the usual method of
absorbiing einaller companies. The
small companies acquired - by the
'Western Union have been lost in
oblivion. Some of -the associated
corporations engaged in the telephone
business, the majority of whose stock
rests in the treasury of the parent
concern, were: New York Telephone
$50,000,000; New England. Tele
phone and Telegraph company, $31,
700,000; Bell Telephone company of
Pennsylvania, $31,150,000; New York
and New Jersey Telep'hone compa'p,
$25,000,000; Southern Bell Tele
phone company, $21,400,000; Cum

Telephone company, $17,500,000;
Western Telephone and Telegraph
company, $16,000,000; Bell Tele
phone company of Canada, '$12,500,
The telephone system annually
ftransmits 5,956,800,000 messages
while 'the Western Union handles
68,053,000. Tihe telephone system has
8,098,679 miles of wire and the
Western Union 1,382,509. The total
property value of the telephone com
pany is $545,045,600, and, that of
the Western Union $124,086.920.

New York, Nov. 16.--Announced
i-n Boston, confirmed in New York
and commented on with interes: 'ev
erywhere, . another billion dollar
merger became a reality in the . fi
nancial world to-day with the prae
tical absorption of ethe Western Uni

American -Telephone and Telegraph
company. The Western Union, one
of the developments of the late Jay
Gould, has been in the Go-uld family
for a generation and it was by the
sale of Goul'd stoaek to-day that the
merger was accomplished.

that the Mackay companies, control

Scouting the germ theory in regard

'war on consumptionl, to -which $15.
*00,000 has been approprilatedl in this
couirv, was only the m2eans of in
feet ing. the people with feari. Dr. Edi
ynmnd Banning. profesor of surgery
.a lleriug college. (Chicago. and med
ical director of the Banning open air
camp near Jacksonville, Fla., in iis
paper to-day promoted new ideas of
the treatment of tuberculosis.
At the Florida camp the gravity
treatment, together with perfect res
piration, has been given a test.
. Dr. Bannin said in part:
"Gravity is the indicated remedy
from the world of physicians. There
is no disease but .there are variations
from the normal, and all such de
-rangements are the result of a viola
tion of the natural law, and a result
of imperfect mechanism."
Breathing, he declares, is a purely
mechanical function and a perfect.
respiration is dependent upon a per
feet mechanism-and with a perfect
respiration there is a complete im
munity from any derangement or so
balled disease of -the lungs.
Ochopedology, or the science of
rendering a * mechanical abnormal
body mechanically normal, will cure
100 per cent. of all cases of tubercu
losis of the lungs in its first and see
ondary stages, according to Dr. Ban
ning, 80 per cent. in the third stage,
and 20 per cent. un the last stage.
Cattle Ticks Lessen Yield of Beef
A cattle tick that has reached the
engorged stage weighs about 5 grains
and about 1,500 such ticks weigh a
pound. As cattle in the tick region
often carry many thousands of these
blood-sucking parasites, and as each
tick during the period of its attaeh
ment to an animal draws considerably
more than its own weight in blood,
it can be seen that -these t'eks con
stitute an enormous drain on the
cattle which they infest. This ae
counts ,for the fact that under such
conditidps it is impossible -to fatten
cattle even on rich pasture and with
an abundance of good feed. A large
part of the nourishment that should
go toward producing beef and milk
is consumed by the ticks. In addi
tion to the loss of blood and nour
ishment there is the never-ceasing
irritation caused by the ticks, so
that the existence of the infested cat
tle is best with continuous suffering,
and this of course also tends to keep
them in poor condition.
The shrinkage in the milk produc
tion of a cow 'arboring many ticks
will average one quart a day, and theI
loss, occasioned thereby at 3 cents
a quart for the 875,000 tieky dairy
cattle out of more than 4,000,000 be
low the quarantine line would amount
to $26,250 a day. Counting 300 milk
ing days for each cow to the year
would make the loss from this cause~
$7,875,000 per annum.
Full information as to how to get
rid of the ticks, including directions
for the preparations of dips and
sprays, the arrangement of pastures,
etc., may be obtained free upon ap,
ification to the Bureau of Animal
Industry, Department of Agriculture,
