Remarkable Crop of Wheat.
Colfax, Wash., Aug. 28.— A..
K. Adelberg, local agent for the
New York Life Insurance company,
has returned from a business trip to
Hay station, and tells an interesting
story of a remarkable crop of "vol
unteer" wheat on the farm of John
Splater. Mr. Splater had a field of
90 acres, which was in wheat last
year, and which he intended to
summer fallow this year. A fine
crop of "volunteer" wheat came up
from seed wasted last year, although
the ground had never been plowed.
Air. Splater concluded to let it grow
and see what kind of a crop it would
make. He has threshed it and had
a yield of 186 sacks more of grain
than he got from the same field last
year, when the land had been care
fully cultivated and the crop plant
ed under favorable methods.
Will Develop the Spring.
After investigating the possibili
ties ot Spring Flat for a city water
supply, Engineer Miller favors the
ElbcrtOO spring project, and with a
force of six or eight men will begin
work there this morning in an en
deavor to develop a larger flow. If
a sufficient quantity of water cannot
be secured by this means, the pro
ject of pumping into the pipe line
from a large spring at dleuwood
will be considered. The two springs
would furnish an atuple supply, and
pumping would be necessary only
during the irrigating season. —Col-

The body is a factory of poisons. If
these poisons, which are constantly be
ing produced in large quantities in the
body, are imperfectly removed cr are
produced in too great quantity as th(
suit of overfeeding, the fluids which
surround the brain cells and all the
living tissues are contaminated with
poisonous substances which asphyxiate
and paralyze the cells and so Interfere
with their activity. This fact explains,
in part at least, says the London Fam

changes are certain to take place. This
fact explains a very large share of the
myriad symptoms which afflict the
chronic dyspeptic. The giddiness, the
tingling sensations, the confusion of

which are not infrequently observed a
few hours after meals in chronic dys

High a Rate of Speed to Die
"Yes," said the engineer of a famous
fast train, in talking over a recent big
railroad wreck the other day. "there have
been a good many bad wreckslateiy, but
there's nothing surprising about them.
When a smash-up happens people get all
sorts of reasons for it, but they rarely
hear the right one. The real cause lies
with th« public, that wants to travel at
a rate of speed that can't be kept up with
"I have been in the business a good
many years, and I am firmly convinced
that 40 miles an hour is about as fast
as a train ought to go. When you have
to run at 50, 60, or 70 miles an hour, the
engineer is simply taking chances. The
other night I was running into a smal!
city up the state. It seemed to me that
more than a thousand green, red and
white lights were dancing before my
eyes, and I couldn't tell one from the
other. How much worse it is coming
into Chicago you can imagine. We will
never have anything like safety in rail
road travel as long as the public de
mands such high speed."

150 men by his own hand after a vic
