FOR FRUIT GROWER

to Keep Peach Orchard Thor

Whenever wve see a farmer, par

peaches, we feel that one part of his

There are scores of communities
in which about one'half of the resi

Suicides in Czar's Army.
The Razvedchik, the semi-official or
gan of the Russian army, publishes
some startling figures about the ex
tent of the suicide mania. among Rus
sian troops, quoting a report recently
presented to a Moscow learned society
by a well-known military surgeon, Doc
It appears that in 1906 no fewer
than 144 cases of suicide occurred in
the Rursman army. In the following
year the number rose to 192. Since
then it steadily kept on growing, be
ing 210 in 1907, 242 in 1908, 263. in
1909, 268 in 1910, 347 in 1911 and 405
in 1912. Within eeven years, there
fore, the number of suicides increased
about one hundred and fifty per cent.
The figures for 1913 have not yet been
published, but, according to Doctor
Prozoroff, the first eight months of
last year showed 377 cases of suicide
and 189 cases of attempts at suicide,
and for 1914 the high mark continues.
Out of the 377 cases just mentioned 72
occurred among offilcers.
Trade of Bottle Sorter.
One of London's queer trades is that
of empty bottle sorting at the Lonrion
bottle exchange off Blackfrairs road.
These bottles have been salvaged from
dustbini, collars, the holds of ships
and wherever bottles go astray.
Every year at least 2,000,000 bottles,
after many wanderings, find their way
to the bottle exhange. They arc sort.

a great need for anti-tuberculosis
work throughout the State. The Na

just made public, throtgh the State
commission, its figures for South Caro

was found that the mortality rate
from tuberculosis is thirteen ani one
half per cent. This is about thre.. per
