River Graft Which Skim* Along the
Visitors to the Corney Reach of the
Thames at Cheswick recently, were
startled by the slant of a white and
gray whale-backed craft, some 22
'eet -long, and not unlike an ordinary
motor boat in appearance, progress?
ing at the rate of 30 miles an hour,
with scarcely a ripple of wash to
show her track.
This vessel marks a great step In
the practical developement of the hy?
droplane, the principle of which is to
attain great speed by skimming along
the very surface of the water. She is
the embodiment of successful experi?
ments with models conducted by Sir
John Thornycroft in the course of
last year, and is fitted amidships with
petrol engines of some fifty horse?
power. The vessel has a flat bottom,
and under the forward keel there is
a horizontal plane to keep her
"The most fascinating of sensa?
tions," was the verdict of a passen?
ger as he returned from a trial spin.
"At a slow speed she feels just like
sn ordinary roomy motor launch. A
touch on the lever turns her into a
thing of exhilarating speed. There is
a stammering roar from her engines
working at fifteen hundred revolu?
tions a minute and at once she flings
her head high out of the water until
she touches the surface only with her
forward balancing palnes and the
middle of her flat stern. Tou feel as
if you were sitting in the stern of a
giant Canadian eanoe.
"As you look bsck you see a white
line of ruffled water In her wake but
so slight is her wash that when we
skimmed psst some scullers at SO
miles sn hour they did not even

New? of a Discovery Under Discus?
sion by Physicians in Greenwood-?
An Alkaline Treatment.
Greenwood, Sept. 9.?Local physi?
cians are much interested in a new I
treatment of typhoid fever which
may be one of greatest importance.
A paper on the subject was read be?
fore the county medical society Mon- i
day by the discoverer of the treat?
ment, Dr. vT. L. Lander and the mat?
ter was freely discussed. The usual
procedure in such matters is, ofi
course, to have all publication first
made in the regular journals of the
profession and then they can be pub?
lished by the lay papers. This treat?
ment is being freely discussed, how?
ever, and it will not be amiss to tell
something about it as the paper read
by Dr. Lander will not be published
for a month yet in the State Medical
Journal. Dr. Lander was for a num?
ber of years a professor in his fath?
er's college, Williamston Female col?
lege, now Lander college. Three
years ago he entered the Charleston
Medical College in Charleston and
has one more year before his gradu?
ation. He is a man of mature judg?
ment and has always taken great in?
terest in the work of the county
medical society and it was at the re?
quest of the society that he prepared
the paper on typhoid above referred
An Alkaline Treatment.
Dr. Lander does a considerable
amount of work in the chemical lab?
oratory at Lander college, making
tests of blood, etc., and is frequently
called on to make tests for physi?
cians. In this work he had to have
fresh cultures, as in the case of typh?
oid bacteria they do not work so well
if over two days old. Some time ago
he was making up a new medium
in which to place a new growth of
typhoid bacteria and while engaged
In the work was Interrupted. He
states that In such cases one Is not
always accurate because of the in?
terruption and such was the case with
him then. There is a regular for?
mula for this medium in which to
grow the germs. It Is really a sort of
weak beef broth, but has to be made
according to a formula. He discov?
ered after a little while that the
cultures in the test now with the
supposedly correct medium were not
doing so well, not growing as they
should. The idea then ocurred to
him that if a similar condition should
be brought or could be brought about
in the human system, great progress
would be made in the fight against
typhoid fever. He began to inves?
tigate to find out what was the mat?
ter with his medium
Checks Growth of Germs.
The result of his investigations
were that the typhoid germs will not
grow In a medium more alkaline
than the prescribed one. Too much
ncid does not seem to affect the
growth, but an alkaline preponder?
ance does affect the growth, it re?
tards it. This then in brief is the
basis of the discovery as it can be
told by a layman to laymen. The
idea is to develop an alkaline con?
dition in the system of a typhoid fe?
ver patient so that nature can be
aided or backed up in her fight to
choke down the typhoid fever germ.
\s is well known as soon as a pa?
tient deveh pa typhoid fever or any
other germ disease nature at once
gets busy an.l rl^rt \ the manufacture
Of a poison In the system to fight this
particular rorm. If nature can get
breeche- hold the germ is ddomed, if
not the patient dies. This new treat?
ment Is simply an effort to find
something that will help nature with
Its weapons of defense. Of course,
such treatment must be in the hands
of a physician and must be adminis?
tered as the individual case indicates.
Some man has written to Dr. Lander
telling him he has five cases of
typhoid fever and wants to get the
"treatment." To him as all others
Dr. Lander writes that he must con?
sult his physician and if the physi?
cian cares to write to him he will
be glad to tell him the results of the
tests made here. As said above, the
matter is being freely discussed by
the physicians here and apparently
satisfactory results have been had in
such tests as have been made. In
other towns around, too, the physi?
cians are testing the "discovery" and
reports will be made in full later.

ered where there ere no bill collec?

bullet hole in his head, the body of
Howard Pearman, banker and school
commissioner, of Hartwell, Ga., was
found near Craft's Ferry in lower An?

had been unable to raise the neces?
sary money to straighten them out.
Pearman crossed over from the
Georgia side of the river yesterday
and tied his horse to a tree near the
road, where the animal remained so
long that a search was instituted.
A note was found In the buggy,
saying: "Come on down the river; you
will find me waiting.' With the note
explaining the suicide were found the
dead man's watch and other articles
he carried in his pockets, which had
been piled on the river bank before
the deed was committed.

WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH
Cardinal Gibbons Says the People
Demand the Spiritual Gift in
In response to the question: "What
is the Mater with the Churches?"
asked by Theodor*? Dreiser, E(
The Delineator, Cardinal Gibbons
' It must be borne in mind tnat tne
American people are at heart a re?
ligious people. In few countries are
religion and religious men treated
with more consideration. Almost ev?
ery public function is opened by an
invocation and closed with a benedic?
tion. Yet our people are falling off
in their attendance at church. There
is no gainsaying this statement.
"What, then, is the cause? Many
of our countrymen do not consider
church-going as a binding obligation
in any sense. Frequently it is assert
I ed that we can worship God in our
onw hearts and home; we can inter?
pret the Bible for ourselves; and al?
though. In reality, they very seldom
do one or the other, the pretense is
sufficient to drug their consciences.
We must not lay the whole blame on
the laity. Almost any excuse would
?eem to justify a man in absenting
himself from church services when
the subject of religion, that is to say,
duty to God and duty to our neigh?
bor for God's sake, is seldom incul?
cated. Finally, another cause can he
traced to the fact that many societies
for the advancement of education, for
the development of athletic sports or
for mere social purposes, have added
a Sunday service such as many peo?
ple were accustomed to assist at for?
merly In the churches.
"What, then, is the remedy? It
will he found by giving to the people
in the churches something of God,
some spiritual gift, some good which
it would he impossible for them to
get elsewhere. Let the minister of
God speak as one having authority,
and our religiously Inclined people
will throng the temples of Divine
worship. 1 may add that we have no
reason to complain of our Catholic
people. In the cities, the ohurch? t!
are crowded at each of the live or six
masses offered on Sunday. In the ru?
ral districts, In good weather and In
bad, Catholics seldom And any di
culty so great, any condition so Intol?
erable, as to hav? to dispense with
their obligatory attendance at the
Divlm services on Sunday."

HILL AIMS FOR ATLANTIC.
Humor* of Moot Important Railroad1
Deal In Year* Well Substantiated.
(From the Southern Lumberman.)
At Nashville during the current
week rumors have been rife that a
deal has been made by which the
Burlington system of the Hill lines
will build these gaps. As this in?
volves the absorption by purchase or
lease of the whole extent of the Ten?
nessee Central, running through
Nashville from Hopkinsville on the
west, to the top of the Cumberland
Plateau on the east, and the bringing
in of one of the two big railroad sys?
tems of the West. ?iese rumor* have
naturally created a great dea'. of ex?
crement, not only throughout the
State, but over the South generally.
If there is anythll.g in the immediate
proposal no more important develop?
ment for the S'.'Uth has come in 25
The rumors appear to have back of
mem a substantial foundation. Col
S. M. Felton, chairman of the. board
of the Tennessee Central and presi?
dent of the Chicago Qreat Western, in
a special telegram to Nashville par?
ties, confirms the story, and 3ays that
the surveyors now In the field be?
tween Hopkinsville and Paducah are
making a preliminary location of that
part of the new construction. It is
almost too good to be true, but there
are various confirmatory facts. The
ultimate intention of the Hill system
to come into the southeastern terri?
tory has been often mentioned, and
some recent utterances of Mr. Hill
himself lend strength to the belief
that such a plan exists.
The story is that the Tennessee
Central will be extended from Hop?
kinsville to Paducah, a distance of 70
miles, where It will connect with the
new line which the Chicago, Burling?
ton and Qulncy is now constructing
from Herrin, 111., to Metropolls, II!.,
Just across the river from Paducah.
This Ifne Is 40 miles long and 19 near
ing completion. With a bridge at
Paducah. and the Tennessee Central
extended to that point, the connec?
tion would be a continuous one from
all the territory of the Northwest to
Harriman on the Cumberland Pla?
teau, where the Tennessee Central at
present connects with the Southern
Railway. It is said, however, that
the plan does not take into account
this connection with the Southern.

It will be seen, therefore, that only
three short pieces of new construc?
tion !s required, from Hopkinsville to
Paducah, 70 miles; from Harriman to
KnoxviUe, 4 5 miles, and from Knox?
viUe to the connection with the Sea?
board 30 miles; in all a new con?
struction of one hundred and forty
five miles. This excludes the new line
from Herrin, Ind.. to Metropolis, 111.,
of which construction is already well
Whether the present rumors have
anything in them or not, there is
hardly a doubt but that the gaps of
new road will be built by somebody.
The prospect opened by the establish?
ment of such a connection between
either of the great Western railroad
systems and the lines penetrating the
Southeast will not be neglected long*.
There are grounds for regarding the
Hill interests as the most logical
establishers of such a connection.
Most persons are familiar with the
long fight, that has gone on between
Hill and Harriman for control of
transcontinental traffic, and the west?
bound trade with the Orient. The
contest hfis continued for ten years,
ever since Harriman entered the rail?
road field. First one and then the
other has gained an adavntage. Hill's
efforts have been directed to securing
such connection with Eastern and
Southern roads, and particularly with
Southern roads in the mutter of west?
bound shipments of cotton for export
to China and Japan, as would put his
Northern lines on an equal footing
with the Southern Pacific of the Har
r man system. He bad the edev on
his rival until Harriman wresti
from Hill's allies the control of ifc
Illinois Central. This system had
worked hand In hand with Hill on
cotton shipments and other west?
bound freight for years. When the
Illinois Central went Into Harrlman'?
control, aft. r :i Bght hardly second In
importance to that started when Har?
riman tried t'> wrest Hill's orlg
lines front his control, th< HIH -:?>
tem had to look out for new conec
tions. \n immediate step taken was
the rehabilitation and extension of
the lines of the Chicago, Burlington
und Qulncy, which had been purchas

look unreasonable, then fore, that the

be for iii<' Burlington to come Into the
southeastern field by some such move

I but If a connection with the South

terns Its Importance and advantage
the region traversed cannot be or

to cut much figure of itself, but tn*
