MAHUA TREE GROWS ALCOHDL ."
Blossom Produced, When Sun Dried, -
Contains 60 Per Cent of Its Weight
in Fermentable Sugar.
Alcohol in these days has attention
from government in diverse ways. 0
England has had a committee studying
the possibilities of Increasing the pro
duction of alcohol to be used in gen
erating power. r
The opportunities discussed by the
committee are interesting. Of course,
potatoes, artichokes and cereals came
in for attention. But it seems there
are less known sources of alcohol. For
example, there is the flower of the
mahua tree, which flourishes In Hyder- t
abad and the central part of India.
This flower, when sun dried, contains
60 per cent of its weight in ferment
able sugar, and apparently is to be
gathered by the ton. Then there are
the fertile gases of the coke ovens.
They are so rich in surprises to the I
everyday man that it Is not very
startling to learn they contain ethyl
ene, which by synthetic processes
somewhat developed under the stress
of war may he converted into ethyl
With the coal beds about to pro
duce alcohol, and the trees of India
fairly blossoming with it, the man with
a motorcar may quiet the fears arous
ed by the scientists' figures which
show that we are within sight of the
end of petroleum and gasoline. There
is nothing like being easy in one's
nilnd.-The Nation's Business.
REMEDIES OF THE DAYS PAST
Plants, Berries, Weeds and Roots
Among Ancient Remedies Used
for Cure of Ailments.
Quaint malady remedies of the past,
many of which led to wealth on the
part of the inventors, were nearly all
naide of berry plants and many of
common weeds. Pokeherries, years
ago, were used to make plaster for
a cancer, and grapevine sap was pre
pared for hair tonics. To produce a
sweat, tea was made from magnolia
leaves and the berry of this plant was
often mentioned as a cure for con
For toothache, the veteran prac
titioner used the )nyberry root. Ber
ries of the cedar tuce were supposed
to stiften the spine, and a purge was
made of alder buds or of elderberries.
The goldenrod, the mullein plant, the
burdock, and common weeds were also
held forth as cures for various all

To Extinguish Fires in Coal Mines.
The mud-jet seems toeiave been
found especIally adapted to extinguish
ing fires in coal mines, but it is liable
f to be ineffliently applied. A recent
investigation shows that lime and clay
should be included in the 1mud. The
usual success of the mnud-Jet in con
trolling fire is largely due to the ac
tion of these conient materials in con
solidating loose particles, ani closing

WOMAN, 80, WORKED IN MINES
Grandmother, Yet Able to Be on
the Job Ten Hours a Day,
Tolling Like a Man.
Mrs. B3ridget Ml-lugh, the oldest
"pit-brow" woman in the Pemberton,
Eng., coal field, is dead at the age of
80 years. For more than half a cen
tury she had worked at the mines.
"Old Bridget," as Mrs. Mc~ugh was
familiarly called, was a hale and
hearty, strongly built woman who
could use a shovel in filling mine cars
as well as any man, and was always
looked upon as an expert pit-brow
worker, few being her equal. The
shorter working day was unknown
to her, and summer and winter, rain
or shine, she was accustomed to leave
home at five o'clock every morning,
and was in her iflace at the coal bank
before the whistle sounded at six. Her
day continued until live or six iAt
night. Mrs. Mchugh was a grand
mother, and two of her sons are emn
ployed in the colliery where she work
ed so long.
