NO MOSQUITO NO
SUPPRESSION OF INSECT ONLY
MEANS OF PREVENTING
THREE DAY DANGER
MOSQUITO BAR PLACED AROUND
EVERY PATIENT FOR THREE
DAYS WHO HAS FEVER
WASHINGTON, Aug. 4.—The pub-
lie heatlh service has issued a bulletin
on the prevention of yellow fever.
The directions given look to the sup
pression of the mosquito as the only
means of preventing its spread. "No
mosquito, no yellow fever," is the
motto in big black letters at the top
of the circular. The document con
"The infection of yellow fever is
carried by mosquitos and by no other
means is the infeotion spread. Per
sons take the disease by being bitten
by th- mosquitos that have bitten a
yellow fever patient. The mosquitos
to become infected must bite a yellow
fever patient during the first three
days of .the attack. The first three
days therefore are the most important
time for preventing access of mosqui
tos to a fever patient.
"It is often difficult to dec.de dur
ing the first three days whether a
patiient has yellow fever, hence the
necessity in threatened communities
of placing a moquito bar around
every patient who has fever of any
kind and continuing it for three day
HER BAKED BEANS
FLORIDA HOUSEWIFE WINS A
BIG FORTUNE BY HER SKILL
IN COOKING GOOD NEW ENG
JACKSONVILLE, Aug. 4 —Mrs.
A. M. McDonald has fallen heir to
$250,000, all because fhe could bake
Boßton beans and bake them right.
Mrs. Abbie R. Dodge, part owner of
the Windsor notel here, died the other
day and, after leaving her relatives
neat little legacies, she left the bal
ance o* her large fortnue to Mrs.
McDonald because she could cook.
Mrs. Dodge lived at the Windsor,
which employs the highest-priced
cook in this part of the country, but
Mrs. Dodge woald leave a chef dinner
from entree to sweets for a good old
fashioned dish of Boston baked beans,
with molasses enough to make them
taßte like Dedham, Mass., and a fine
latioed slice of crisp pork laid tempt
ingly across the top.
New Engalnd corned beef and cab
bage she liked too, and she would go
to Mrs. MjDonald's, eat heartily
thereof and then carry home the re
ceipt to the $10,000 chef and ask him
to cook some like that. Try as he
might he could never satisfy Mrs.
Dodge's New England taste.
And now Mrs. Dolge has left her
fiiend who fed her the delicacies she
was brought up on, a big fortune,
which will oome in very handy, as
Mrs. McDonald, the legatee, is the
wife of a poor minister.

TELEGRAPHERS AND OFFICIALS
EXPECT CONTEST TO BE
200 MEN COMIMG FROM WEST TO
TAKE THE PLACES OF
ST. PAUL, Aug 3.—The second day
of the telegrahpers' strike on the Great
Northern and the Northern Pacific
railways wided with the railway offic
ials asserting that the strike had al
ready been broken and the officials of
the telegraphers' union stating that it
has only begun. Both sides profess
great satisfaction tonight, and each
maintain that the struggle will be end
ed within a fortnight.
In spite of the difficulties presented
by the walkout of the telegraphers the
railways have beeu able to keep the
most important trains very near to the
schedules. Through trains from the
coast arrived in St. Paul today on
time, with the exception of the North
Coast Limited on the Northern Paci
flc, which was not seriously delayed.
The time freights are beng successful
ly handled. Tin abandonment of a
number of way freights was the most
serious disablement ot traffic today.
The railway offioals claim that
there has been a notable break in the
strikers, all the operators on one
branch of the Great Northern in North
Dakota having gone bak to work and
30 or 40 more having signified their
willngnes to do so. Many substitutes
were placed during the day and men
from different parts of the oountry are
beiug examined and nut to work as
rapidly as they arrive.
It is estimated that the loss of busi
ness for one day to the two roads more
than equals the amount of increase de
manded by the operators for one year,
and a corresponding lots daily will
equal the increase demanded far as
TALKS OF THE FAIR
SAYS WASHINGTON HAS ONE OF
BEST BUILDINGS AT FAIR--
CHELAN COUNTY FRUIT BEST
IN THE STATE.
Bruce Griges and wife returned
from the Portland fair and other coast
points, on the afternoon train yester
Of his visit to the fair, Mr. Griggs
said: "I iiave little to say except
words of praise for the fair. The
Washington building is one of the best
on the grounds, both in regard to ar
chitectural beauty and completeness
of exhibits. The Chelan county ex
hibit is still leading all the others,
but California is close on her heels.
California of course has the advantage
over us in having an exhibit of early
peaches and I would suggest that as
soon as Chelan peaches ripen, a large
shipment be sent to the Fair at onoe.
Apples would make a large improve
ment in the tone of the exhibit and it
would be well, I think to send a quan
tity down there as soon as possible.
"I want to say a good word for Mr.
Graham too. He is the right man in
the right place an 1 it is owing largely
to his efforts that Chelan oounty holds
the leading place in the ranks of fruit

he had the utmost confidence in M.

GIVE NO PASSES
WESTERN RAILROADS FIND THIS
PRACTICE IS TOO
CHICAGO, Aug. 4 —That too much
free transportation has been given to
secure freight and passenger business
is the opinion of the executive officers
of the western roads. At a meeting
tonight they agreed to stop their
freight agents from giving any more
passes or reduced rates to shippers and
decided that their passenger ocffiials
should hold a meeting tomorrow for
the purpose of reaching an agreement
not to make any more concessions in
order to seoure business.
Although the act to regulate traffic
specifically prohibits the issuance of
free or reduced transportation in order
to influence tracffi, it is an open secret
that in order to secure paTty business,
such as delegates to annual meetings
of the Epworth league Order of Ea
gles and Grand Army re unions, pass-
enger departments of ralroads have
given or promised free tickets to per
sons who control the routing of the
