Being I'sed In the Doctor's Tests.
Rosy- Haea on Cheeks of the Chem
ical Eaters Are the Envy of Wash
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley . continues to
guard the food experiments which he
Is conducting with a dozen or more
clerks In his department with the
greatest secrecy, under orders from
Secretary of Agriculture Wilson, says
a Washington special dispatch to the
New York Ilerald. Nevertheless, as the
young men are not kept Indoors all the
time, it Is impossible to conceal any
effects which the poisoned food may
have upon the subjects of the expert
Although there have been no marked
changes in any of the young men so
far as health is concerned, it has de
veloped within the last few days that
all who have been at the doctor's table
are taking on a delicate pink complex
ion which. It is said, would be the envy
of any young miss in the land. It Is
not thought that this is due to the
borax which has been given to the
young men in their food for the last
few months, but to some chemical in
gredient which has been mixed with
the food unknown to the subjects.
This change in the doctor's boarders
caused some concern at first until a
thorough examination was made of all
of the young men and they were found
to be In a perfectly healthy condition
The only admission that will be made
at the department is that ail the drugs
used in the food have up to date proved
absolutely harmless. The pink com
plexion gives the men a healthy ap
pearance, such as would result from a
good circulation of the blood brought
on by outdoor exercise No one en
gaged in the experiments has been
able to determine vwhat chemical has
produced this change, or if he has he
will not tell.
"It's this way," said one of the board
ers. "Some time ago we began notic
Ing that our complexions were getting
clearer. We didn't think anything
about It at first, but after awhile, when
it was seen that all of us were pink
cheeked, we began to believe that it
was some chemical they were putting
in our rations now. We don't know
exactly what it is, but we think that
they stopped the borax course some
time ago. Therefore it must be the
"There was one fellow at the ob
servation table who had a complexion
when he first came to the bureau like
one of the fifty-seven varieties. Now
his own girl wouldn't know .him... lie
has a skin like the inside of a straw
berry. Since the freckles and bumps
and things have disappeared from his
face he is a mighty proud boarder, if
he does eat chemicals.
"Some of the boarders are worse
than others or better, I guess you'd
say but we all have rosy cheeks, and
no mistake. Why, we're getting so
we're ashamed to go on the streets.
The girls turn around and look at us.
Dr. Wiley says that he is not yet
ready to make his report on the first
stage of the experiments, known as the
borax stage. It is said, however, that
enough is known already to show that
the borax has had no harmful result.
As soon as the observations of the
first stage are completed Dr. Wiley
will make his report to Secretary Wil
son, who will himself decide in what
form it shall be given to the public.
NEW LOOP THE LOOP.
Spectacular Device to Be Seen at
Simmer Resorts This Season.
The tornado is the name of a new
"loop the loop" device which will be
seen at summer resorts and gardens
during the coming season, says the Chi
cago llecbrd-Uerald. It Is about twice
as spectacular in arrangement as the
original Coney Island affair, having
two loops, within which a rubber ball
of large dimensions and containing a
human being whizzes. The ball is sent
down the Incline from a standard of
fifty feet high, rolling along two cable
wires. It plunges Into the first loop
and is conducted into the second in
short order. The trip ends in a net,
where the rubber sphere is unlatched
and the man allowed to show himself
to the people.
E. S. Fox of Chicago is the inventor.
He claims for the tornado that It will
give a hundred somersaults In ten sec
onds. When the rubber oval is seen on
the fifty foot standard this summer by
an admiring and wondering populace,
it will be a courtesy to the manage
ment for young men to refrain from
calling it a high ball, as the joke Is al
Two Cents For a Masher.
American women who complain of
the annoyance of professional mashers
in the streets of Paris might profit
from an experience I heard a bright
American girl relate the other day,
writes the New York Herald's Paris
correspondent. She was walking along
In the daytime, accompanied by an
other girl, and noticed a man following
them. An idea struck her. Reaching
in her purse, she found a small piece of
white paper, then looked around shyly.
The masher, encouraged, caught up and
grasped at the paper she had In her
hand. Instead, howevert of receiving
the little note evidently .expected he
found himself clutching 2 sous. (2 cents).
Needless to say, he did not follow farther.
Sew York Laborer Hailed as a. XUs
- iusr Light In Literature.
- Unless the judgment of Adolph Wil
brandt, the noted German poet and
writer, is at fault a new light in litera
ture has arisen, whose work, accord
ing to the critic, is destined to stir not
only Germany, but every nation that is
Interested in the social and economic
problems of the day.
The new author is Hugo Sertsch,
who works as day laborer at the fur
rier's trade ui New York. His claims
to fame rest entirely upon one work,
which Is soon to be published by Cotta,
the great German publisher of Stutt
gart and Berlin. Herr Wilbrandt is
enthusiastic over the work of Mr,
Bertsch, whom he compares to Gorki,
the Hungarian writer.
Hugo Bertsch was reared in the
Black Forest of Germany, and his only
schooling as a boy was of the crudest
preparatorj- kind. lie is a student by
nature, however, and has added to his
store of knowledge in his later years
by hard reading and faithful study of
the best that literature affords.
The title of Mr. Bertsch's book is
"Die Geschwister," which, translated.
& cv- nxv:vi
Is "Brother and Sister." It recites the
events in the life of Tom Tratt. an
American laborer, whose struggles
against starvation after being disabled
in an accident are told in a series of
letters to his sister, the wife of a poor
Mr. Bertsch still continues to work
at his trade and in the meantime is
working on a second book, which, in
his opinion, is stronger than the first

considers Shakespeare the greatest of

Hamilton Fish, tv Assistant Treas-
nrt-r of the Inited States.
Hamilton Fish, the new United States
assistant treasurer in charge of the
subtreasury at New York, was for
many years prominent in New York
state politics, having served almost
continuously In the state assemblv
from 1S74 to 1S96, two years of which
rts speaker, when he voluntarily retired
to practice law in the Empire City.
Mr. Fish is the son of the late Hamil
ton Fish, once governor of New York
and later secretary of state under Gen
eral Grant. He is a graduate of Co
lumbia college and was private secre
tary to his father during his service in
Grant's cabinet. Besides his long serv
ice in the state assembly, he was at
one time a member of the aqueduct
commission of New York city.
Physically Mr. Fish is a superb spec
imen of manhood. He is over G feet 2
inches in height, perfectly erect and,
though he has just reached his fifty-
fourth birthday, has the vigor and
grace of a young athlete. He Is an in
timate friend of President Roosevelt,
with whom he served in the New York
legislature, lie visited Mr. Roosevelt
at Oyster Bay last summer and was a
not infrequent guest at the White
House during the past winter.
It is said that Mr. Fish's retirement
from politics six years ago was due to
his disappointment at not receiving the
nomination for governor of the state,
which he felt he had fairly earned .by
his long service in the assembly. Mr.
Fish, besides his legislative experi
ence, has also been trained in practical
diplomacy both as the confidential sec
retary of his father and also as minis
ter to Spain.
The family to which Mr. Pish be
longs is said to possess a strong talent
for financial direction. His father was
an able administrator, and his brother,
Stuyvesant Fish, is a successful finan
cier and railroad manager. In his new
position Mr. Fish will have an oppor

It Kills Them
Liquified oxygen a tonic to you the

Liquozone carries oxygen, in staple
form, into the blood; and the blood con
veys it to every membrane and tissue.
There is not a known germ that can live
Liquozone is the only germ-killer that
one dare take internally.
It forms the only way to kill germs in the
body without destroying the tissues, too.
It directly destroys the cause of all germ
troubles, and there is no other way to do it.
The reason is this: all germs are vege
tables, and oxygen, the very life of an
animal, is death to vegetable matter.

of any kind in this product.
