AS AN ADVERTISING MEDIUM.

highly paii I newspaper man in the worhl ami whose
wchiii- i- everywhere lecoghifd, Illlilerst ooil the
t,i- truth of this statement when lie saiil:
"The loeal newspaper in proportion to its cir
culation, is in my opinion, infinitely the ino-t val
uable adverti-ihg ' medium we have. The value of
t cinintry newspaper i- based largely upon the
f;ict that the man who reads it looks upon it as a
leiohlor ami friend. ;i personal aciiiaint aiice, and
attach, s to the irilited statements and advertise-nniit-
of the country newspaper far ''ater import
ance than the hie city attaches to the statements
and advertisements in the hie eity newspapers. As
a friend talkinn to another ahout a certain kind of
Uund- can intlueiice a friend more than a stianuer,
sn :i t -I m ut ry newspaper, standing on a footiny; of
friend-hip with it- nadir- can talk to them ahout
iriiiid- fur sale or any other topic and impress upon
tin in more tronnly than the hin met roiolit an news
paper, which i- really a -tranter. "

State, particularly in Aroostook County. After August 1 no
common or Iri.-h potatoes can ie ntovcu oiu oi .wuuie .aki-v
under regulations which the Department of Agriculture will pub

among Maine potatoes, but hitherto the State authorities have
been responsible for preventing the spread of the disease. With
the enforcement of the new quarantine, the Federal Covernnient
will take charge of the work. There will be. it is said, no radical
change in the lexi.-ting restrictions.
THE WHITE MAN IN THE TROPICS.

The storage battery consists of three elements, some plates
of lead, or nickel-iron, n fluid, or electrolyte, suually of diluted
sulphuric acid, and a container, usually a glass jar for each cell.
This battery produces no electricity by itself. When it is
"charged' no electricity is stored. To "charge" a storage battery
it is connected up to an electric circuit. The electricity flows into
the battery cells and this electrical energy causes a certain chemi
cal change to take place within each cell. The anode plate in
the battery cell is made of spongy metallic lead, and the cathode
plate of lead peroxide. These active elements of the battery
cell are both changed into lead sulphate when the battery is dis
charged. Charging the battery changes them back ngin into
spongy lead and lead peroxide.
The electrical energy of a storage battery is stored up in
the form of chemical energy. When drawn uHn it will reverse
this operation and change the chemical energy back again into
electricity with a slight loss in heat, etc., So, you see, the storage
battery stores chemical energy, not electrical energy, as most of

The Piedmont & Northern, Charlotte, N. C, the largest
electric railwav system in the south, are placing in commission
six powerful electric locomotives of a new type on the Green
ville. Spartanburg & Anderson division of the system. These

the normal rating ot the lour motors, wnn which earn hh-whuuu-is
equipped, they will develop a tractive effort of 17,')0() lbs.
and a speed of 21 miles per hour. 1 he locomotives will handle
trains of 800 to 1000 tons gross weight.
The Piedmont : Northern lines comprise two main divisions
which when entirely completed will embrace 280 miles of track
for limited and local passenger, express and heavy freight ser
vice. One division, operated by the Piedmont Traction Company,
extends from Charlotte, N. (.'., to King's Mountain, N. C
Twenty -three miles of this road are in operation at the present
time between Charlotte and Castonia, but the remaining twelve
miles from Castonia to King's Mountain are yet to be constructed.
The other division, operated by the Greenville. Spartanburg v.
I Anderson Traction Company, extends from Greenwood through
i Greenville to Spartanburg. S. C. ami joins the northern division

from the transmission lines to two substations for the Piedmont
Traction Company, one. in Charlotte and the other in Gastonia.
On the southern 'division of the road there are four substations,
one three miles south of Spartanburg, one at Greenville, one at
Helton and one at Downs, which is three miles out of Greenwood.
The roads have a very heavy freight traffic and transport great
quantities of cotton from shipping points to the various mills
