Sixty-year-old Victim.
Washington.—Pleading for her sixty
year-old "boy," who, she says, will die
If he is not permitted to obtain the
drugs denied him by the Harrison anti­
drug bill, an eighty-one-year-old Colo­
rado woman has written a pitiful letter
to Dr. B. R. Reese of the internal rev­

President Wilson, but Secretary Tum­

is the clearing house of such corre­
Much as the appeal of the old Colo­

exception will be made in that case.
There is no intention on the part of
the internal revenue division to issue
blanket permits to obtain drugs for
individual cases.
Capture of Roland Garros Big
Loss to Allies' Aerial Fleet.
Paris.—When Roland G. Garros, the
daring French aviator, was captured
by the Germans one of the most pic­
turesque careers of the war came to
a halt. The lieutenant had proved
himself to be the most brilliant and
daring air man in any army.
Lieutenant Garros is well known in
the United States, having flown in

many competitions in that country.
One of his latest exploits was at Dun­
kirk, when he shot dead in the air the
aviator and the observer of a German
aeroplane. He went out against this
machine alone, and as his machine was
the faster he was able to gain an ad­
vantageous position, from which he
fired with fatal precision.
Garros was born of French parents
at Cape Town, South Africa, in 1885.
He is a graduate of the University of
Paris and of its law school and for a
time practiced his profession in the
French capital.
The exploits of Garros have made
him a prominent figure in aviation cir­
cles throughout the world. He has ap­
peared in meets In Richmond, Chatta­
nooga, Memphis, New Orleans, Dallas,
Fort Worth. Oklahoma City, Waco,
Houston, San Antonio, El Paso. Mex­
ico City, Vera Cruz, Havana and New
iork and holds a number of speed
prizes won at tournaments held in
many European cities.
On Dec. 11, 1912, Garros ascended to
a height of 19,032 feet and established
a world's altitude mark. On his flight
from Tunis to Sicily in December, 1912,
he traveled for a distance of 160 miles
entirely over water. When he flew
across the Mediterranean from St
Raphael to Bizerta he traveled 568
miles la hoars and 53 minutes.
Tennessee Farmer Sends Check
$3.50 Plow Bought In 1896.
Little Rock, Ark.—In 1800 J. Milton
Williams, a Tennessee farmer, bought
a plow from EL S. Speck, a hardware
dealer at Alorristown, Tenn., on credit
Recently Mr. Speck, who long ago left
Tennessee and is now a resident of
Little Rock, received a check for $3.50,
the price of the plow. The letter ac­
companying the check read as follows:
"Dear Sir—You remember some years
ago I bought of you a turning plow. I
have always intended to pay the debt,
but it seemed that I had so many things
on me that 1 had to put what little
money I could get into other places. I
hope you will pardon me for keeping
you out of your money for so long. 1
trust you are well and prosperous."
Dan Patch's Colts Will
Minnesota Colors in
Minnesota will be represented at
{he Panama-Pacific Exposition. The
legislature refused to appropriate the
pioney necessary for a model farm
tiome, and the attempt at raising
(unds from private sources failed.
Nevertheless, the North Star State
will be heard about by hundreds of
thousands of San Francisco visitors
trom June to September.
Instead of one star there will be a
galaxy that will be known as the Sav
Ige-Patch Constellation. To be exact,
there will be eleven stars, and it is
predicted, a meteor or two.
M. W. Savage, at the head of big
business enterprises in Minneapolis,
|nd incidentally owner of the best
equipped horse breeding farm in
America, has taken it upon himself to
pee that Minnesota is on the exposi­
tion map. The premier, Dan Patch,
ind other world champions have help­
ed to make the farm and its owner
frown around the world, and the
Vnama-Paclfic visitors will all know
ey are Minnesota products.

time in 1914 leaves her eligible to all

The carboniferous qualities of the water and the Atmosphere
having been absorbed into the cretaceous organisms of the
which formed beds of Limestone, and into the rank vegetation
which went to form the coal beds, the atmosphere of Earth
began to be pure enough to permit Ufe in breathing unimai.
To this period, therefore, belong the amphibious developments
of animal life, such as the crocodile and other animal^ which
can live either on land or in the water. Birds belong to this
period, and In the latter part of It appeared the great Mammoth
and the Sloth.
The conflict between Evolution and the Bible has been sharp.
Nevertheless, unnecessary friction has been generated.
Only in respect to man does the Bible declare a special, direct
creation of God. The statements of Genesis In respect to the
lower creatures rather favor something along the lines of spe­
cialized Evolution. God said, "Let the waters bring forth abun­
dantly the moving creature that hath Ufe, and fowl that may
fly above the Earth." (Genesis 1:20, 21.) This is exactly in
harmony with our scientific findings that the beginning of life
came from the waters, and later extended to the birds, and
later to land «nimni%
The Darwinian theory has disappointed those who swallowed
it without a sufficiency of demonstration as to its truth. (1 Tim­
othy 6:20.) Recent demonstrations show that every mixture of
species and kind, even where partly successful, means a rever­
sion to the original standards within the third or fourth gener­
ation in plants, flowers, fruits and in wnimaig
The correct thonght would seem to be that under Divine su­
pervision various orders of creation were brought to a state ot
development and a fixity of species, not to be turned aside nor
thereafter altered. Not one suggestion is offered respecting hu­
man evolution from a lower creature but quite the contrary.
The Bible furnishes merely a basis for faith, "that the man of
God may be thoroughly equipped."—2 Timothy 3:17.

difference In Expenses of Richest and
Poorest Yale Students.
New Haven.—The members of the
Yale class of 1915 will get their diplo­
mas in June at a totai cost of $1,079,
111, according to the expense accounts
of the men who gave the figures in
their personal statistics published in
the Yale News.
The figures show the great difference
In the financial resources of the men
who go to Yale and testify to the
continued existence of democracy there.
In freshman year, which is the most ex­
pensive, the most affluent man spent
$4,500, while the most frugal got his
education for a cash outlay of $200.
Perhaps due to parental conferences
over freshman year's expense accounts
or to the financial depression, the rich­
est man in sophomore year spent but
$2,800, while the poorest man spent
$200 cash. The average for the year
was $1,076 a man. Last year the aver­
age expenses a man were $1,106, indi­
vidual expenses varying from $4,000
to $200. This year the richest man
expects to spend a total of $3,100 and
the poorest man $250.
Quits Rat Catching When
Galveston, Tex.—Charles Bertollna,
the Galveston Pied Piper, has turned
in his badge and will not be seen catch­
ing rats along the water front and the
beach for some time. Charles is the
champion rat catcher of Galveston.
For the past several months he has
been taking the rodents at the rate of
2,000 per month.
For this service he received the regu­
lar price paid for rats and in addition
was given a bonus of $10 provided he
caught as many as 1,000 in thirty days.
When Charles began his career as a
rat catcher he said he would quit when
he had made enough money to buy a
boat and a gasoline engine. Recently
he made the purchase and then ap­
peared at the health office and laid
down his commission.
The latest record made by Charles
was 1,028'rats In sixteen days. For
these he was paid at the rate of 8 and
10 cents each and given a bonus of $10.
