the body of Mrs. Emm« Richards Brigham, re
ported missing from her home in Plne-st. last
night, was round to-day In the alder swamp In
the rear of htr home. Fierce was the struggle
between a frail woman and her fiendish an
taconisi, If the mule Btory of trampled leaves
and scattered hemlock branches can be believed.
A tramp who eiopped at the Brlgham house
two nights in September is suspected of being
the muiderer. His description, as given by the
aged mocber of the murdered woman, tallies
with that of Üba tramp seen in Leicester yester
day and to-day. He left Leicester in September
with a blue shirt and gold pen. stolen from
Mrs Brlghatn'a houfe.
Three tramrs are held nt Pper.ce-r aa puspects.

No motive for the crime Is known. The first
theory that i=he bad b*-en robbed is not borne out
by Investigation, for a clo.«e examination of her

Date Unusually Early— Water To Be Drawn
Albany. Nov. 2«.— The canals of the State close
officially to-nlph:. As usual, the Superintendent of
Public Works ha» granted special permits to boats
now on the way to reach tldewatr-r, and f r this
reason water will not be, drawn from the levels
until November 29.
This date Is one of tho earliest on record for
closing the canals: only three times In Its history
has the closing date been earlier. Ir "BSO Ice closed
the canals on November SI, and the "tflcial closing
was on November 2." ta I?3S, and 1546, but never
earlier than that. Last year the date of closing
was November 30.
The seabon has had a number of drawbacks
which reduced the tonnage to a considerable ex

navigation was better, and the showing for the
ytar will be more favorable than was at first an

the Gr*-at Lakes, which began early ln tho ?ijn^.g:
and .■:tir.ued for several months, was responsible
for the falling In cj.nal trame. l! practically
prevented all shipments from the West via the

Science Supports All Claims Made
for It.
In the last number of this series It was promised
that evidence would ba piven to support the asser
tion that rise easily surpasses in food vnlue the
various foods in common use; (1) because It Is only
execedea in fuel value by 6ugar; (2) Is wholly
dlgcs'ej In much less time than any of th«r other
foods; (8) combines admirably with all of them,
and (4» Is cheaper per unit of value.
Before presenting this evidence, a table of value,
which for convenience is compiled from a (partially
f?raph!c) chart appearing in Atrvnter's "Chemistry
and Economy of Food," it is perhaps necessary to
interpret the "calorie," which Is given as the ac
cepted measure of fuel value, and thl? cannot be
tlnne more simply and lucidly than in the words of
that eminent authority of the United States 'De
partment of Agriculture, especially In charge of
nutrition Investigation:
"The amount of heat {riven off in the oxidation of
a given quantity of any material Is called its 'heat
of comtustlon.' and Is taken as a measure of Its
latent, or potential, energy. The unit commonly
used is the calorie, the amount of heat which would
raise the n-mporature of one kilogram of water
1 degree Centigrade, or what Is nearly the same
thing, one pound of water 4 degrees Fahrenheit.
Instead of this unit of heat, a unit of mechanical
energy may be used; for Instance, the foot-ton,
which represents the force required to raise ono
ton one foot. One calorie is equal to very nearly
1.54 foot- tons— that is to say. 1 calorie of heat, when
transformed into mechanlcai power, would suffice
to lift 1 ton l.vi feet. '

Liquozone has. for more than 20 years, been
the constant subject of scientific and chemical

The result is a Liquid that does what oxygen

Yet it is a germicide so certain that we publish
on every bottle an oiler of $1,000 for a disease

germs arc vegetables; and Liquozone-like an
excess of oxygen— is deadly to vegetal matter.
There lies the great value of Liquozone. It
is the only way known to kill germs in the
body without killing the tissuf, too. Any drug
that kills genu is a poison, sad it cannot bo
