BRIEF NEWS ITEMS OF INTEREST
During the past week the records of
many southern cities have been broken
in the matter of low temperatures.
The Pacific fleet of warships is to be
divided. Half of them will be sta
tioned on the Pacific coast and the
other half in Asiatic waters.
There has not been so much snow
and ice in the Ohio river valley for
years, and a sudden rise in tempera
ture will cause incalculable damage.
On New Year's day snow fell in
Fresno, Calif., for the first time in six
teen years, and in Visalia for the first
time in the history of that city. Or
ange trees, laden with ripe fruit, were
heaped with snow.
Louis Gardo, who lives on a farm
two miles east of Steptoe butte, this
state, planted 20 acres of white and
yellow corn last spring and harvested
65 bushels an acre, a total of 1300
bushels, from the twenty acres.
Spencer Trask, one of the best
known bankers of New York city, and
an authority on financial matters, was

the New York Central dashed into the
rear end of the Montreal express.
Over a dozen persons, men, women
and children, were burned to death
Friday morning last in the wreck of a
Rock Island passenger train in Mis
souri. Most of the fatalities occurred
in a tourist sleeper, filled with passen
gers for the Pacific coast. Spreading
of rails was cause of accident.
The city of Salem, Ore., is threat
ened with desertion by the Willamette
river and unless measures are taken to
prevent it the city will be left high
and dry with the river bed half a mile
west of its present location. The
mayor has communicated with the
United States engineers and the mat
ter will be taken up with Oregon's del
egation in congress in an effort to se
cure an appropriation for dyking the
To provide a simple and cheap
means of sending money in small sums
through the mails, and to lessen the
use of coins, bills and postage stamps
for that purpose, it has been recom
mended in the annual report of the
postoffice department that a form of
postal check or note be adopted, simi
lar to the present money order, but
issued for lower fees without written
application, in fixed denominations of
less than $10.
In a blinding snow storm, which had
stalled a Great Northern freight engine
and prevented the engineer of an on
coming Burlington eastbound passen
ger train from seeing the warning sig
nal lantern of the flagman, one of the
worst wrecks ever known on the Butte
division occurred last Friday night near
Oxford Siding, about 30 miles east of
Judith Gap. As a result three men
were killed, ten were injured and the
greater portion of the passenger train
was consumed by fire.
Tremendous damage has been done
in southern California by the terrific
rainstorm which ended Sunday after
precipitating five inches in less than 24
hours. Towns and cities were isolated
for days and the railroads lost miles of
roadbed and numerous bridges.
John R. Bradley, Dr. Cook's backer,
has decided to outfit another expedi
tion into the arctic. It is believed that
he wishes to verify the existence of
"Bradley land," which Dr. Cook re
ported he had found.
All the attorneys who will partici
pate in the trial of former Congressman
Binger Hermann, on a charge of con
spiracy to defraud the United States
government out of a portion of the
public domain, have arrived at Port

ary 10 before Judge Wolverton in the
United States district court.
Following endless complaints from
victimized workingmen and strong agi
tation by the I. W. W., the authorities
of Spokane have refused to grant re
newed licenses to an even half-dozen
of the more notorious employment
agencies of that city.
The Chicago Federation of Labor
have adopoted resolutions calling upon
the national pure food commission to
investigate if peanut shells constitute
the basic element in the manufacture
of breakfast foods. "In a recent
freight train wreck it was discovered
that several cars consigned to break
fast food concerns were loaded with
peanut shells," says the report.
May Take Off fast Mail
Seattle, Jan. 3. —Unless the govern
ment gives the Great Northern rail
road a larger tonnage for the 46-hour
fast mail from St. Paul, that train will
be taken off. Such is the statement
made by John A. Eiller, general agent
of the road at Seattle.
"In the absence of M. J. Costello,
assistant traffic manager, the matter was
referred to me. I have asked the co
operation of the chamber of commerce
and the commercial club to exert their
influence upon Senators Jones and
Piles to bring the matter before the
"Should the mail for Portland, which
is now being handled by the O. R. &
N., be given to the Great Northern, it
would raise the tonnage sufficiently and
could be delivered into the city of
Portland at least six hours ahead of the
time that it reaches there now."
Cost of Sleeping in Safety
It costs each person in the United
States 81.65 a year to go to bed witn a
sense of security born of the knowledge
that if his house starts to burn an army
of firemen will arrive to put out the
fire. The census bureau announces
the figuresas the result of an investiga
tion of the fire departments and fire
losses of the 158 largest cities in the
country. In Berlin it costs only 26
cents a year to sleep easy; in London,
19 cents, and in Milan, 17 cents. The
United States geological survey has
made computations to show that this
difference is because the building re
strictions in Europe are greater than in
this country; that there are more fire
proof buildings and that the cost of
maintaining the fire departments is not
During 1907 the 158 largest Ameri
can cities lost more than $48,000,000
in fires, covered by $42,000,000 in
first Gyroscope Road
New Westminster, B. C, Jan. 1. —
Work has already been started in the
Okanogan valley on the construction of
the first gyroscope railroad in America,
to be devoted to commercial transport
ation purposes. The line of railway
will encircle Okanogan lake, touching
all points on the shores of that large
body of water. Spur tracks will be
run to any near point where business
justifies such an extension.

To Boycott Trust Food Products
Washington, D. C, Jan. 2. —More
than two score members of congress
and their wives met today to discuss
the proposed national anti-trust league,
through the agency of which it is
hoped to prevent the infliction of high
prices of food. The meeting was held
behind closed doors, but it was said
that tentative plans were discussed for
recruiting 1,000,000 families to obey
orders of the central committee to re
fuse to buy those commodities on
which the price had been increased
through unfair manipulation of the
No Wonder Meal Eaters Are Decreasing
Washington, D. C, Jan. 2.—That
half the meat eaten in the United
States can be called uninspected, and
that a real and serious danger to the
public exists as a result, is one of the
conclusions reached by Dr. A. D.
Melvin, chief of the United States
bureau of animal industry, in his an
nual report just issued.
One result of the federal inspection
is to cause the diversion of diseased
and suspicious looking animals to the
uninspected establishments, where they
are slaughtered for the open market.
More than 36,000,000 animals were
inspected at the time of their slaugh
ter in the fiscal year just closed, and
more than 1,000,000 were condemned
in whole or in part. On reinspection
there were condemned more than 25,
--000,000 pounds of meat and meat
products which had become unwhole
some since inspection at the time of
Che Heavenwortb ißcho.

New York, Jan. 3. —Coroner H.
Harberberger has reported to the police
and excise commissioners that wood
alcohol is again being sold as a bever
age in New York city, with death in
stead of stimulation for the tipplers
who pay five cents a drink. The cor
oner says that several cases of mysteri
ous death during the last few months
have been traced to this cause.
"For ten cents," said the coroner,
"a man may go into some of the dives
of New York and buy enough of this
beverage to produce blindness, coma
and death. The men who sell it make

The Power of Wealth
A little, lean, pale miser of Peca
tonica, says the Seattle P.-L, was one
evening observed righting with the
town blacksmith. Though his nose
was bleeding and one eye was closed,
the miser fought determinedly. The
herculean blacksmith planted blow on
blow, but the little miser never budged
"Run, ye fool!" hissed a friend.
"Ye stand no chance here. Run!"
But the little miser, as he receive^
heroically a smashing left hook, an
swered fn a low voice:
"Run? Nix! I've got my foot on
a ten cent piece!"
Little Gladys —Granny, go down on
your hands and knees for a minute,
Fond Grandmothei —What am I to
do that for, my pet?
Little Gladys —'Cause I want to
draw an elephant.
