The load pencil is one of the most
common articles in everyday use, and
nearly 32i.o.oihi pencils are manu
factured in this country every year.
To manufacture these millions of pen

7,30O,(.Hi) cubic feet, of wood, so that
each day in the year "00 tons, or 20,

pencils. Since practically all of the

out of consideration the imported pen

years ago lie used less than five.

NO RAW MEAT FOR HIM.
Professor of Boxing Takes Issue With
Yale Professor. I
Professor Harry Gilmore, exponent
of the manly art, ex-champion light
weight of the world and prominent
academist, "legs to differ."
Professor Irving Fisher of Yale,
whose dictum in regard to a rcw meat

Professor Fisher's statement with a

by devouring raw meat, belligerent,

A Sensitive Photographic Plate.
A sensitive photogrnphlc plate has
been placed on the market which Is de
veloped by simply placing It In water
of a moderate temperature. In this
ca-e the developer is placed on the
back of the plate In the shape of a
coating and, being dissolved when the
plate Is placed In water, nets upon the
gelatin coating on which the photo
graphic Imprnsslon hag been made. The
modification of the developer, which Is
sometimes necessary to meet the de
mands of different lengths of exposure,
Is arrived at by using more or less wa
ter, as the case may be. The new
scheme Is said "to be very successful
and quite convenient.
Cat Get Railroad rf'oos.
It is said that President MeCrea of
the Pennsylvania system has Issued Rn
order requiring the maintenance of a
rat killing cat at every station. Mr.
Cat Is to go on the payroll. He will
receive a monthly appropriation large
enough to pay for his milk and perhaps
a lunch of fish now and then. Then
if he doesn't keep the rats out of the
baggage room he will be discharged,
and another cat will be employed to do
the rat catching about the station.
Rats tear baggage in transit, and the
cats are to stop this damage.

NATIONAL HYMN IN DANGER?
G. A. R. Discovers Plot to Omit Anti
British Verse In Schools.
An InslHlnTTs ntnt tn undermine the
The verse in question refers to the
most glorious memories oT the Revolu
tion and speaks in terms of condemna
tion of King George's troops. It runs:
And where Is that band which so vaunt
That the havoc of war and the battle's
A home and a country should leave us no
Their blood has washed out their foul
No refuge could save the hireling and
From the terror of flight or the gloom
of the grave.
And the star spangled banner in triumph
O'er the land of the free and the home
of the brave.
They ascribe the abandonment of the
verse to the visit to this country of
Colonel Sir Howard Vincent of the
Queen's Westminster volunteers. Un
der the guise of trying to strengthen
the bonds of friendship between Great
Britain and America he suggested the
mutilation of the congress ordained na
tional anthem, the G. A. It. men say.
He asserted that in England In defer

the second verse of "God Save the
King," with its pious allusion to the
"knavish tricks" of Britain's enemies.
Is now universally omitted, and he
proposed that it would be as well not
to tear open the scars of 1770 every
time Americans wished to arouse their
natural love for their own country.
The omission of the verse was taken
to heart In particular by William C.
Allen, the patriotic instructor of the
G. K. Warren post, G. A. It., of Brook
lyn, and he is endeavoring to form an
association for the protection of the
It was rumored the other day that
before long the aldermen will be asked
to pass a strong resolution upon the

CRUSADE AGAINST FLIES.
Kansas Board of Health Holds That
This Insect Spreads Various Diseases.
The Kansas state board of health Is
making nn effort to lessen the ravages
of disease by eliminating the common
house fly. It is the belief of the gen
tlemen comprising the board that flies
cause many diseases by carrying the
germs about with them.
Dr. S. J. Crumbine, secretary of the
Kansas board of health, says that the
fly is the greatest purveyor of disease
In the world, and in the bulletin of the
board for April he shows how disease
may be spread by flies and how It may
be prevented. Dr. Crumbine believes
that the inventor of the wire window
and door screen was the greatest bene
factor of the age.
Not long ago., he points out. It was
definitely learned that yellow fever,
typhoid fever and other diseases were
carrieu Into homes bv flies and mos
quitoes. Some physicians assert that
the wire screen is the greatest preven
tive appliance for typhoid and yellow
fevers. It is urged that no files be al
lowed to enter a sickroom, particular
stress being laid upon this.
A recent Kansas law permits the
local health officials to require the re
moval of all nuisances, keeping the
streets, alleys and vacaut lots clean.
Flies breed in filthy places, and It is
well known that mosquitoes require
stagnant water for breeding.
