RUSSIAN RED CROSS DOGS.
The cut shows a pack of trained ambulance dogs. Their mission is to
locate the wounded and to summon the ambulance men by their barking.
They were bred and trained at the Forfarshlre tillage of Carnoustle, Scot

hmi have been found to be admirably adapted to their purpose. The Russian

there was a crowd, of course, and It

two or three burly members of the

testimony to the
efficacy of the

does not rely on
treatment or drugs
in his system, but
effects the cure by
means of electric

rying on experiments and during that
time has cured large numbers of peo
ple. His first case was received in
October, 1901, and a cure was effected
In the following December. From
four to eight months, according to the
nature of the disease, is necessary to
effect a cure. The use of alcoholic
drink during the period is entirely pro
hiMted. According to Dr. Canu, there
are four classes of tuberculosis and in
all these classes the electric treatment
has been successful. His patients
have come from every grade of socie
ty, many of them being furnished by
the hospitals and by insurance compa
nies. None of them is put on a rigid
diet, although the subject of food is
taken into consideration. Good, sub
stantial, blood-producing foods are ad
vised. Dr. Canu Is satisfied that can
cer can be treated In the same way
and he offers all the knowledge he
possesses to any one who wishes to
take up the treatment of this disease
by his system of electricity.

RAILWAYS OF INDIA.
There Arc Now Nearly 27,000 Mite*
of Line There. ■ i
There are now nearly 27,000 miles
of railway lines In India, and before
the close of 1903 the total will pass the
30,000 mark, says the Montreal Family
Herald. The Increase has been quite
rapid during the last five years, owing j
to the experience of the last famine,
when it was demonstrated that facili- \
ties for the rapid transportation of j
food supplies from one part of the
country to another were an absolute
necessity. It la usually the case that
when the inhabitants of one province
arc dying of starvation those of an
other are blessed with abundant crops,
and the most effective remedy for fam
ine is the means of distributing the
food supply where it is heeded^
Before the great mutiny of 1857
there were lew railroads in India; ami
the lesson taught by that experience
was of incalculable value. If re en
forcements could have been sent bj
rail to the beleaguered garrisons, in
stead of making the long marches, the
massacres might have been prevented
and thousands of precious lives might
have been saved.
In 1880 the railway system amount
ed to less than 10,000 miles. In 1800 it
had been doubled; in 1001 it hud pass
ed the 25,000-mlle mark, and now the
existing lines are being extended and
branches and feeders are being built
for military as well as famine emer
gencies. All the principal districts and
cities are connected by rail. All of the
important strategical points and mili
tary cantonments can be reached
promptly, as necessity requires, and in
case of a rebellion troops could be
poured into any particular point from
the farthermost limit* of ludla within
seventy or eighty hours.
India is a very big country and it re
quires a great many miles of rails to
furnish even necessary transportation
facilities. The time between Bombay
and Calcutta is forty hours by a fast
train. From Madras, the most Impor
tant city of Southern India, to Delhi,
the most Important in the north, sixty
two hours of travel are required. From
Peshawur, the extreme frontier post
in the north, which commands the Ky
ber pass, leading into Afghanistan, to
Tutieorin, the southern terminus of
the system, it Is tf.-HX* miles by the reg
ular railway route, via Calcutta, and
four days and nights will be necessary
to make the journey under ordinary
circumstances. Troops could be hur
ried through more rapidly .
FARMERB OF THE"SOUTH.
Improved Methods of Cultivation Art
Rewarding the Hiinbanduiaii.
The truth begins to dawn upon tin*
minds of the agricultural writers of
the North that the Southern farmer is
not such a thriftless fellow as he has
heretofore been represented to be,
says the Southern Farm magazine.
The tendency to an improved agri
culture among Southern farmers is be
coming very marked within recent
years. The fact Is admitted that i\
greater yield of crops with less labor
is the proper direction in which to
work. Less land Is being abandoned
and more manure employed. Im
proved agricultural implements are be
ing introduced everywhere. On many
farms where fifteen or twenty hands
were formerly employed the force has
been reduced to five or six, and this,
too, without reducing the protits of the ;
Indeed, this change has, with prop*
er fertilization, increased the protit*
and bettered the condition of the soil.
The soils which were formerly under
slave labor put In cultivation every
year are now rotated, rested, clovered
and made to do duty once in two or
three years instead of every year. It
is not to be disguised, however, that
all over the South are many gullied
fields that will require years of pa
tient labor to restore to their original
productiveness, but every effort is
pointing in the right direction. Less
land in cultivation and a greater yield, '
liss lul)or and more labor-saving ma
chines employed, less clearing forests
and more manurtal applications, less
attention to large ctops and more to
the profits of the farm, better stook
and better attention to them—these
are the channels into which the best
agricultural thought of the South la
drifting, aud a continuance in this dl-'
rectlon will work marvels of success
A Many Sided Problem.
Modern education, with all its suc
cesses, sometimes breeds a conditiou
of mental uncertainty. The old max
im, "Be sure you are right, then go
ahead," Is complicated, says Tit-Bits,
by the difficulty of being quite sure
whether one is absolutely right or not.
"Jane!" called a young mother.
"When the baby has finished his
bottle, lay him in the cradle on his
right side. After eating, a child should
always lie on the right side. That re
lieves the pressure on the heart. Still,*'
she added, reflectively, "the liver Is
on the right side. Perhaps, after all,
you'd better lay him on the left side.
No, I'm sure the book said, "right
