Gainesville, July 26-;-No frogs fell from the sky here Thursday night and Friday morning and so far as local exeprts on "frogology" have been able to ascertain, such a phe nomenon never has occurred any where else. It rained heavily here and the pre sence of thousands of small frogs hopping about Friday .morning after the downpour resulted in the sending out of news stories to the effect that it had rained frogs., ' The Smithsonian Institution, at Washington, and; other authorities, declare that the presence of multi tudes of small frogs after heavy rains .often results in reports that frogs have fallen from the clouds but that the idea is all wrong. The frogs were there before the downpour, hidden in crasks and crev ices of the earth. An unusually heavy rain simply floods their hiding places and they are forced to aban don them and come out into the open or drown.

GeneVa, Switzerland, July 26 The reply of Haiti to the list of questions regarding the white slave traffic sent to all members of the League was to the effect that such a thing as "white slavery" was un known in that island, had never ex isted there and consequently Haitian officials had nothing t3 offer in re ply to the questions. An Advertisement Helped Her. Mrs. Lucille Mackey, 16 Buena Vis ta St., Washington. Pa., writes: "Last winter my 3-year-old girl caught a bad cold whfcJi left her with a dry cough. It bothered her most at night and she would cough until she vomit ed. I think she must have had whoo ping cough. I saw an advertisement for Foley's Honey and Tar. I tried it and bought two bottles and her cough left her before she finished the second bottle. She had gotten awful ly thin, but now she is as fat as ever." For sale by J. H. Haughton. (By Aaaoclatcd Preaa.) Melilla, Morocco, July 26 Person al narratives of participants in the disaster of Mount Abraran and Ten-4 saman indicate that the lack of pre caution of the officers in charge of the operation was responsible for much of the damage done to Span ish prestige. On June 2,. according to eye-wit nesses, Mount Abraran fras occu pied by Spanish troops without the slightest resistance. It is a position covered with the thickest kind of vegetation, among which large num bers of men could find cover. No attempt was made to reconnoiter the ground after the camping place had been chosen but detachments of men were told off to lay barbed wire around the camp while all the officers sat down to a meal. A short time afterward the sur rounding bush appeared absolutely thick with Moors, who opened fire on the group of officers, then penetrated the encampment, where they were joined by the mutinous 15t'.i company of native police. Numerous acts of bravery were done by both Spanish and faithful native troops, but the surprise was so sudden that it was impossible foe the garrison to save the guns, which were carried off by the Moors. Then both Spanish and native troops fled precjitately, abandoning rifles, bayo nets and baggage. The casualties comprising killed, wounded and prisoners numbered over 308 and, if the landing detach ment of a warship and forces from Cerinola and Melilla had not inter vened to support the fleeing garrison it is possible the Spanish would have lost both Sidi-Dris and Tensaman. The Moors apparently were acting under the guidance of foreign in structors, for their tactics were quite modern. Information has 3inc come in that their ranks are strengthened by deserters from both the Spanish and French armies.

Following is the interesting review: The honeymoon over, Knox Ran dall soon falls into his business with Germans to Clear Up Infamous Street - In Capital City (Br Aaaoclatcd Prcaa.) Berlin, July 26 "The Street of Many Fakirs" the section of the Friedrichstrasse between Unter den Linden and Koch streely may-soon lose the right to its exotic title, won by virtue of the varied and question able, '; commerce which thrives upon its sidewalks and crossings, for an agitation has been started to "clean it up." Every article from jumping-jacks to fine Oriental rugs may be pur chased from the vendors who infest the street, eternally crying their wares. The chief complaint against the character of the street, however, is that thieves use it continually as a clearing-place to market their "hauls." Not infrequently a ragged unkempt man' will offer most expen sive imported fabrics for suiting, in odd bolt lots, at ridiculous figures.

London, July 26 Gas made from old oak logs is now being supplied successfully to the inhabitants of Steyning in Sussex. Other towns are rapidly following suit. It is claimed that this wood gas has prac tically the same heating and light ing properties as coal gas and its use means a saving of mors than half a dollar per 1,000 cubic feet to the consumer. The Steyning gas works being threatened with closure owing to the prohibitive price of coal, about 15 a ton, the carbonization of wood was resorted ' to as an experiment, with the result that wood gas has been' definitely adopted as an illuminant until the price of coal comes down. At Birmingham, old road paving blocks have been converted into wood ' gas with equally satisfactory results. Men have been so interested in the length of skirts that they have neg lected their own 'interests and permitted manufacturers to cut half a yard from the tail of shirts.
