The meekness with which the pas
sengers in a crowded street car will
allow themselves to Iks shut tightly
in the car without chance of ventila
tion except the occasional opening of
a door is one of the marvels of public
travel. It is often the cse that fifty
or sixty people are thus penned ux
and no one iiks for or attempts to
secure a supply of pure air, no mat
ter how vitiated the air inside may
have become. A delay of two or
three minutes arouses every! tody in
the car and there is a general eager
ness to asceitain the cause, hut cubic
yards of impure air will be inhaled
by each one without a murmur. Such
conditions are breeders of disease
and ought to be carefully avoided.

On May oth and fith there will be a
car in Rock Island over th. Peoria
railroad and will be side-tracked at
the depot of the same company,
where all are invited to come and see
the products of southwest Louis

there will be a beautiful exhibit on
the evening of the 5th, showing the
scenery and other features of that
beautiful section all free. Come
and see it.
' Why Thunder Sours Milk.
Yon have often aked or been askctl
"Why does thunder sour milk?" The an
swer is this: Milk is very susceptible to at
mosplicric changes. Klectricity, the cause
of thunder, produces, or if it does not rerlly
"produce," follows fn"cat and rapid changes
in the atmospheric conditions. Lightning
Is the discharge which comes of electrical
inequalities, producing chemical changes
in the air. Thunderstorms represent the
greatest activity of electrical phenomena,
and the best authorities give it as their
opinion that the electricity in the atmos
phere is the prime cause of milk souring
luring the prevalence of such storms. New
